Did you know that UV radiation is responsible for 80% (!!) of skin ageing? Or that Dark spots are the main reason for dermatologists consultations? Skin cancer keeps being one major problem in the world. Surely cancer rates, ageing, sunburning or dark spots can be drastically minimised with the right sun care routine. Here is how you include your sunscreen in your routine.

Been running around to cross all the hundreds thousands of to-dos on my list. I am still struggling with the balance between working for myself  and being a mum, wife, friend, and still, have some privacy or “me” time. Of course I will soon find out of it. Many women live like that and do not even have the chance to share with the father of the kid.

Last Sunday we been out for a family brunch. It was so good to realise the time, to measure how long it has been already after we became 3. Mikkel is sitting on restaurant chairs and hanging out with us around amazing food and places. We have been dreaming of how it will be to show him some good beautiful food. Nowhere better for him to start then in Scandinavia.

I love the #scandistyle, a was of doing it they have here in Scandinavia. Elegantly Minimalistic, subtle, sharp and charming. Ok, to go out in restaurants ain’t the most budget choice here in Oslo but there are places like Gråd in Tøyen, Oslo. They make goo and creative food, not too expensive (the ingredients are simple but good) and they make it all super nice. Good service, beautiful venue, cutlery, plates, amazing interior and it is walking distance for us. If you are around, go try it.

Anyways, it was a good day with my family.  A bit colder than I expected but super nice to be out.

I wore this cute look from the spring collection at Lindex. I love that both pieces are from regular line, the Extended. The pieces are sized L. I loved the combination, especially the texture in the sweater and the plissè midi skirt. Midis are pretty, we should wear them more. I am also very pleased to shop my clothes in the same area as the girl who dresses XS. This is future, this is inclusion. #fashionforall

Here you find the skirt and here the sweater.

Here I found a similar skirt, in plus size. 

Another one from Asos here.

We like trends. They make us feel like we are up to date with fashion, they make us look cool and express ourselves through outfits, as fashion really is.

It’s good to create your own versions of trends, mix and match, to play around. That’s what this whole thing fashion is made for, right?

I am glad nowadays it is easier to find trendy pieces for achievable prices, like, you don’t need to pay a fortune to have a good trendy bag for instance. Or us, curvy ladies, don’t need to wear granny clothes anymore since now there is much more offer in our sizes.

I love how this look turned out. All the contrasts in it and all the trends together made me like more in the pictures. I did not plan it much, I just grabbed a few pieces I wore the day before. The focus was to use the new bag I got from Morris :-)

The concept is cool, the bag looks pretty, has a good size to fit wallet, phone, lipsticks and keys. The price is affordable and quality just fine. Morris’  #letsgounique allows you to create your very own combo, with a bag and different straps.

I chose the Don Donna crossover in pink with the pink and red flowers stripe. 

I also love to match delicate looking pieces with the camo jacket. This is how I pair a cute gingham top and girly bag – with a punch of a military jacket.

The contrast in the jeans are super cool too. They have similar ones at H&M, here.

Ok, a moment to my lipstick! I am just very into playing with light and colors on my lips. It is a cool way of creating the illusion of more volume and a creative look. Enough with the liner on the eyes then.
