Miami – the magical city

Miami – the magical city

Sun, beaches, blue water ocean, the outstanding nightlife, the movie stars or the rich and famous always surrounding you – nothing sounds better than that, does it? Well, I can at least say that I’m getting a happy holiday this year, in Florida!! I can not believe it, and it still hasn’t sunken in. Maybe because we just ordered our tickets, but I like more spontaneous trips, even though I wish I had a little more time working on my tan.

Going to see all the beautiful sites in Florida like Miami and Key West, the nature which probably will be breathtaking – I simple can’t wait!

Legs & butt cardio blast

Legs & butt cardio blast

So, Yeah, I finally finished my workout for today. I can’t believe I always wait till the evening even though I can have all day. Anyway, it’s done and now the only thing waiting for me is a shower, and dinner.

I kinda felt like a disappointment yesterday when I couldn’t finish the POP HIIT 1 from blogilates very own Cassy Ho. But I didn’t feel defeated, instead I picked myself up today and did my own little routine. I thought it would be better to start off With reps and sets I could finish then to put too much work on myself.

So today’s workout contained a full cardio blast focusing on legs and butt.
Remember to warm up!

– Burpees 10×3
– Box jumps 10×3
– Squat throw 10×3
– Split squat jumps 10×3 (each leg)
– Single leg bridge 10×3 (each leg)
– Sideway leg lift 10×3 (each leg)
– Wall sit 1 minute!

You do 10 repetitions – 3 times. And if you ain’t sweating at the 2nd set you’re doing something wrong cause this workout is going to get Your heart rate up and going.

Good luck, you can do this!!

I’m so tired I didn’t even come up with a title.. what I should be doing is probably be in bed already since I’ve slept way to little this week, maybe even the whole month, but instead I made myself a cup of coffee. I still got some episodes to catch up to so there is no way I’m going to sleep at 22.00. And now I’m going to be brutally honest and say that I don’t remember why I even started writing this post. Sorry. Must be too late already or am I just getting old really fast..? Don’t answer that.

It was nice catching up again and I’ll be back when I have something interesting going on in my life.

Did you say shopaholic?

Did you say shopaholic?

It’s safe to say that I have a shopping problem, and more ironically, I don’t have any more hangers for my clothes. So why do I keep buying new clothes? It’s like a never-ending evil circle. Why can’t I just save my money for practical things like saving for a house, a car, an education or that really cute jacket I found today. Anyway, I have a problem. I even promised myself that I would only shop on sale. Ha, who was I kidding?! I need a cleans. Next month. I promise.

Where I left off..

Where I left off..

I’ve come to the conclusion that my post on the 10th of October was a bit premature. I most often get carried away and think bigger than big of what I’m capable of doing. But in the end I come around and try to pull up that red string and find out where I left you all.

Lately I’ve just been writing about my “planned” topics, like Music Monday, Workout Wednesday, and Fashion Friday. But I do what to get into my old routs writing about much more than those three things. Even if that’s what occupy me most of the free time I have left I have so much more I want to share. At least I think I do.

So let me start with my latest project; redecoration my room. I’ll give you a sneak pick now but look out for a room tour soon.

The great Gatsby

The great Gatsby

ENCHANTING. CHARISMATIC. BRILLIANT.

the_great_gatsby_movie-wide

“The Great Gatsby” is a dramatic movie with diverse scenes with a light on the many aspects we occupy in our life. It’s not another Hollywood movie with great shooting scenes. But it shows a different side to how people are and can be driven by love, hate or money. The greed we can get, the disire for power, for more. It’s a wonderful love story worth to watch.

We take a part of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Long Island-set novel, where Midwesterner Nick Carraway is lured into the lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Soon enough, however, Carraway will see through the cracks of Gatsby’s nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await. (Source: iMDb)

Let’s try it one more time!

Let’s try it one more time!

Hello WordPress!

Let’s try this one more time. I know you bloggers out there all have had a dry period, right? You don’t know what to write or you can never find the time and your blog just gets piled into the “I’ll do it soon” – bunch. Soon becomes tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow, I’ll do it this weekend and then it’s soon forgotten because everything else seems so important.

I’ve found out that I haven’t found that balance between my plans and ambitions for my blog and YouTube, my private life and work. I’ve still got a lot to figure out but I’m not going to quit. So let’s try this one more time. Look forward for more posts in the future.

Changes

Changes

I know, I know, I’ve been so bad at posting lately and you have no idea how guilty I feel. But (you know there’s always a but) I’m going to start making some changes. I’m going to try to juggle work, YouTube, WordPress and let us not forget living a bit better than I’ve done lately. Since I love YouTube and WordPress endlessly I forget to live a little once in a while.

I’m not going to give everything away at once but I can tell you that I am going to move soon, travel and experience some new things. I’m not going to tell you more than that, but keep coming back and you’ll get updated with the latest.

And sorry again for not posting as often! I love how much support I’ve gotten through followers and likes. I’m forever grateful – you keep me going!
