TWO TIPS FOR RUNNING

Good morning! The alarm rang at 06.00 and I crawled out of bed and into my sports clothes. The hardest part is always to convince my mind to get out out of the warm bed go outside where it's cold.... but knowing the feeling and rush of happiness after a run is so motivating, so I did it. 7 kilometers later and a lot of sweat I had a rewarding shower and a fresh pressed orange / celery juice for breakfast. Yey!

Let me share two tips for running. My friend asked me if I get pain in my knees when running often, (I run 2-3 times a week, between 7-12km each time) but no, I don’t have any pain. I have two tricks: First one; I vary my running route each time I run so I get to run on both streets, sand, grass and in the forest. Second one: and the real secret is to use different shoes when running during the week. I change my shoes for each session I run or walk. Not new ones of course, but I have two pair of running shoes and another old pair of running shoes I use for walking. Hence, my knees gets stimulation and doesn't get used to the same bounce each time I do sports. I’m just about to buy a new pair of running shoes, throw away my walking shoes and make my oldest running shoes to my new walking shoes.

STYLISH KIDS ROOM

I'm so happy for all my friends who are starting to build families, some already having had kids this year and some being pregnant as I write. I must say it’s tempting but I will want to wait a little longer, but that doesn’t stop me from posting some inspiring interior ideas for a kids room. Currently I love these grey tones making it look both cozy and stylish at the same time.

STYLISH KIDS ROOM

I adore this vintage cupboard with its matching flower pot adding some healthy plants to the room. A ladder is also a smart idea to hang clothes and blankets onto.

Colourful paper-decoration hanging from the ceiling is not only stylish but also is interesting to look at 

STYLISH KIDS ROOM

There are so many wonderful companies making pictures for kids rooms these days but on top of my list is Desenio 

Last but not least, having a soft carpet next to the bed can be a wise advise as one will spend many hours on that spot and having someone wanting to crawl around on it. There are so many more tips I could give but let’s start here and we take the rest anther day. I hope you are having a nice afternoon, I'm going out to buy my first ice-cream of the year, I've spotted the new ice-cream from Magnum called Red Velvet and will see if they have it in the kiosk close by. Hugs!

FAV. STORE FOR OFFICE CLOTHES
Good morning guys! Did you have a nice weekend?
I feel a little tired after an intense weekend, not only from traveling but also from speaking a lot with my friend Alisa during our girls-weekend, about life, career and other questions. It’s good to get out of my comfort zone sometimes and discuss topics that I normally don’t reflect so much over. Also getting encouraged and pushed forward on ideas and thoughts. Another topic that came up for discussion was “what to wear at work”?
MONDAY

We both love to wear dresses and skirts, but nicely suited for the office. We almost said it at the same time; that our favourite store for office clothes is CAROLL. I’m not sure if this shop exists in Scandinavia but at least you can find it in Zurich and most french towns. My suit jacket that I’m wearing below is from CAROLL and it’s the perfect spring jacket.

MONDAY
This week will be short as easter is coming up and we are going to south of France for the weekend with friends. I’m a bit scared of big cities right now from all the terror that seems to be luring all over Europe so we decided to stay in a small countryside village outside Nice. How do you feel about the terror attacks and do you avoid airports and larger cities and crowds?

I’M NOT SICK, I’M JUST DIFFERENT

Hi guys, I got back from a very special girls-weekend in Lugano. I spent 24 hours with Alisa, one of my best friends in one of our favourite towns; Lugano in the Italian part of Switzerland. We basically ate and drank and talked and stayed in the sun. But now to something much more important and something worth mentioning….something I also spoke about with Alisa, about performing and rewinding. The art of relaxing, something which is very difficult and why these get aways are crucial for me.

FAST & SLOW

My life feel sometimes like this; Up down, right, left, back forth….and then all over again. Sometimes it is hard, very hard for me to rewind and relax or in fact most of the times. Ever since I was small I felt like I had some kind of super energy that lives inside me. At this age I know what it is called, or what people likes to box it like, mostly AHAD. Some might named it illness, but I prefer get any diagnose and simply use my super powers wisely. I’m not ill, I’m just different and I take it to my advantage. But the difference between others or for example my partner is that I need to do thing differently. For example before sleeping; I need to follow some rules to make my brain understand that bedtime is coming up otherwise it will take hours for me to fall asleep.

FAST & SLOW

I guess it might be difficult to undertand what I mean, but here is a few sentences that explains how my life and thoughts are. Reference here. 

SOFIA WINTER

It is essential for me to have a cozy environment at home at night, by turning down the lights, listen to calm music (if music at all), light a candle and do “evening rituals” like brushing my teeth before 22.00. (I try to be in bed latest 22.30). Things that make me not be able to sleep is talking about too much business, eating too late, drinking alcohol or listen to loud music or action movies. These latter things I simply need to avoid. Sometimes, it can be difficult when you share your life with someone, and yes, of course I make exceptions but most of the times I go to another room when we have different wants. This might seem selfish, but luckily I live with someone who understands.

FAST & SLOW

FAVOURITE OUTFIT

Happy Friday to you! This outfit is my favourite outfit of the winter season, and today will be my last day wearing it before I put it away to make space for my spring and summer clothes. It’s all from Zara; the jacket, the skirt and the boots and underneath I have a simple white silk blouse. It will get warmer later today so I like to wear long sleeve tops underneath when I take of the jacket.

One of my favourite outfits 

What else this Friday, well, we woke up to a chilly but sunny Friday morning. I stayed in bed a few extra minutes after the alarm rang, opened the window and let the sun and the air fill our bedroom. Friday mornings are simply the best ones with the last working day of the week and with the whole weekend in front of me. It’s said that expectations and the moment before something creates more happiness than the actual moment. Speaking of which, I’m excited for tomorrow when I’ll go on a girls-weekend with Alisa to Lugano, the Italian part of Switzerland. Zurich is very close to Italy and it’s only 2 hour drive to Lugano. All we going to do is to eat loads of pasta and gelato (ice-cream), sip endless of wines and shop until we drop and of course catch up and just talk girl-talk. Weekend get-aways are important not only to do with your partner, but also with your best friends to spend some quality time together. I promise I will post some mobile snaps on Sunday when we get back.
