    Awesome Pawsome weekend

    With a lot of old faces i have not seen for a while. During Friday i went out for dinner with my family to celebrate my sisters birthday. After that i went to the city to meet up with some old workmates from Malta that was visiting Sweden. It was really nice to see them again and it was a nice evening.

    Yesterday a friend had his birthday so i went for a birthday party at his place and met up with some old good friends i have not seen in a long time. Actually, last time i saw them was in Malta too. So it ended up being a real Malta weekend with a lot of fun. Luckily i didnt have too much drinks which means i feel great today and have had a really productive day when it comes to organizing my things in the house and cleaning… really needed to do that for a while now.

    Black Friday Week

    Only Thursday tomorrow but the Black Friday has been going on the whole week. And i am trying to tell myself not to shop so much, especially since it is the last days before salary. But me doesnt listen to me. So this week i have clicked home a jacket, a pair of shoes, socks (fun i know), training bag and a pair of training pants. So now its enough… until Friday! 😀
    Well at least i bought my things on this huge fake sale event called Black Friday. I call it fake since most of the web sites i visit to buy stuff from has a discount like this on things all the year around. But its nice anyway, lets hope this was some extra that they had 😉

    Have you guys bought anything on Black Friday week yet? 🙂

    A weekend at my summerplace

    How lucky aren’t i that have such an awesome summer place to go visit whenever i want to take a break from the city. And yes ironically i write summer place and yet you can see it is snow on the pictures. Well, it has always been my summer place and i have only spent my summers there, until now. So maybe i should start calling it my free time place? My relaxing sanctuary? or just nu countryside house.

    Well, i was there last weekend with my family to just have a nice relaxing time, eating good food and watch movies and series. Just finished 2 series that are totally amaze-balls! I will write about them in a blog post that is soon to come.

    But yes, when i feel like i really need to take a relaxing break, i go to my countryside house (we agree to that name?) and just relax, watch stuff, read, taking a sauna, having a bath in the hot outdoor bath tub and use all the kind of face masks and creams that i could ever think about.

    What do you guys do when you need some relaxing me-time?

    I think this could have been the best gift ever to my boyfriend… he just loves his drone.

    Need a better immune system

    And here we go being sick again… what is this? Well i actually have figured something out, why i am getting sick all the time lately. For you who doesn’t know already, i am not eating meat, i do eat fish but thats not everyday. So i think my immune system is a little bit pissed at me since my body probably does not get enough protein… and i am working out. So this upcoming month, i will try to find everything that contains a lot of protein that is not meat and include it in my daily meals. Hopefully it will help..

    That also means that i will share awesome meat free meals with you guys, that still contains protein! Cuz i guess i am not the only one out there that try to cut down on the meat or stop eating it completely.

  • Training

    Brucepass Training

    Okay, i have been trying out SEVERAL gyms the last years. Both in Sweden and Malta. I have had a very hard time to chose only one and than stick with it, until i tried BrucePass App and gym membership.

    Brucepass

    At one point i was a member of 3 different gyms at the same time. Since two of them offered different gym classes and they were both great, and i also wanted to do some boxing training. So yeah, 3 gym membership it was. Not the cheapest solution but it worked.

    Now when i came back to Sweden i was really excited to find a new gym to become a member (we have a little bit more to chose between in Sweden than Malta, which make sense sizsewise). But seriously, the prices for most of the gyms? Its ridiculous.  I saw one gym that looked really nice, it was a crossfit gym which would fit me perfectly since i love to do hard workout classes. But it was like 120 euro per month? come on! Is the equipment made of gold? And is the staff pouring the water down your throat when you get thirsty during your workout?

    Nah, lets continue looking. And i am glad i did, cuz among my way cam Bruce, the new man in my life, the saver, the gym membership of many choices and my new favorite app.

    Brucepass training membership works simply as this: You download the app to your smartphone, create a profile and chose a membership. If you chose a 12 month membership it is 60 euro per month. Otherwise it is 70 euro per month, but than you can decide to quit your membership and stop paying whenever you want to.

    So why is Bruce so much better than the other gyms? Because Bruce is not a gym, it is a lot of gyms. Hundreds of gyms around Stockholm & Göteborg has connected to Bruce Pass.  You can search by type of training or by location. Everyday is filled with a mix of funny gym classes to attend to, you just have to book it from your app and head over to the place where the workout is executed.  You can chose from aerobic classes, BodyPump, Dance, Yoga, Boxing, Functional training, open gym, mom workouts and much more.

    It is perfect for you who like to do workouts with variation, or try new, different types of training. And i am really happy with it so far.

    If you a curious to try it out, just go to Bruce and create a profile and a membership. If you enter the code: fridas1 when starting your membership, you will get a 10 euro discount on your first month.

    Dinner & Concert date

     

    Yesterday i went to meet up with my boyfriend after work in Gamla stan. We had booked a table at a restaurant where we had dinner and drinks before going to yesterdays concert. Gorillaz!
    I have listened to them since i was a kid and it was really nice to finally see them live.
    The show was really good, but i do prefer their old songs a lot more than the new ones to be honest.

    After the concert we went straight home, i needed to go to bed and try to get some sleep since i was working today. I wish more concerts was during the weekend, all the good ones is in the middle of the week! And since i just moved back to Sweden from a country that doesnt have to many famous bands visiting them i have a huge thirst for concerts right now. Since i moved back in September i so far managed to see:
    – W.A.S.P
    – Rolling Stones
    – Gorillaz

    And a lot more awaits this upcoming year…

    The perfect winter jacket

    So winter is coming… and since it was 4 years ago i spent a winer season in Sweden last time i am in BIG need of a winter jacket. Yes sure i already have some at homes, that i used before. Like my Canadian Goose jacket. It is nothing wrong with that BUT, it has real fur, which didn’t bother me much a couple of years ago, but since i am much more aware of how terrible they treat those animals and how much they have to suffer just because we want to feel nice in a real fur… Nah, than i dont really see the beauty of  in any more, opposite, i actually get disgusted from real fur…

    Luckily we have a lot of super nice products these days called fake fur! And most of them you can not even tell it is fake. So no need for real ones to look nice ladies 😀
    So i have been searching AF for a nice and warm winter jacket.. Since we never know about Sweden, some winters its like a summer in Finland, and some winters are like if Antarctica made babies with Ojmjakon in Russia. So we need to be prepared for whatever might come!

    So what do i look for in a winter jacket?

    • It has to look good and be love at first sight!
    • It has to be really warm! Im a cold MF
    • Short design… i know, a long one is better for keeping the heat, but i really dont like long models on me…
    • Big fluffy nice looking fake fur

    Aaaand, which brand (according to me) has the absolute best looking winter jackets this year?
    ANSWER: RockAndBlue & Hollies. So many beautiful jackets… but so little sixes left… Life is harsh sometimes… until yesterday! When i saw one of my absolute FAV jackets from Hollies, in my size (hope i picked right) at Nellys.com. So i ordered it! And believe me, it was like Christmas mixed with an orgasm when i pressed the order button.

    PS. Most of the jackets from Hollies have models with both real and fake fur. It depends from where you order.
