Two of the times that i have been visiting Sweden this year, i have coming back home to Malta with a new hair color. The first time was during easter, and the second time was this last Tuesday. Both of the times was very spontaneous. I just walked in a store and found this hair colors from Loreal and could not resist. After all they are just staying in your hair ca 5-10 washes, depending on which color you chose. The first time i picked the purple color and the second time i picked the light blue color. I guess you already figured out that i liked them, especially since i choose to use the color a second time.
Normally i have blond hair. Bleached, especially in the tips. The rest of the hair has my natural color with bleached stripes and the top i have a pretty far gone outgrowth that only contains my natural color. Someone can figure out pretty quick that the color wont change my full hair, not with those light colors i picked, it will mostly be shown where my hair is bleached the most. But thats fine, that was actually what i was looking for.
To use these colors is very simple. You get a package with a description, plastic gloves and a tube with the color. The color is already mixed (at least the ones i bought). So you just make sure that your hair is clean and dried (for the best result) and than starting to add the color to your hair. Leave the color in your hair for up to 20 minutes (depending on how strong result you wish for) and than rinse it out. I left it for 20 minutes and that was perfect. I was very happy with the result both of the times. It is mostly shown in my lower half of the hair but wherever it is bleached you can see the color. If you want to have a really strong color that is in your whole hair you will need to bleach all of your hair pretty heavy before using these colors.
The places i have been seeing them when i have been out shopping is H&M and ICA. And thats the two places where i decided to buy them. But if you dont have any of those stores close to you, you will find them for same good price (from around 10 euro and up) at some online stores. Best prices for Loreal colorista online i have found is HERE and HERE.

For you who already know me are probably already very familiar with my love for food. Especially when it comes to seafood. One big favorite that i always eat during my visits in Sweden are the shrimp sandwich. I have tried all different types of shrimp sandwiches and know exactly where to find the really good ones. But of course i love to try out new places too.
During my last trip to Sweden i went to a place in the city Jönköping called “Bryggan cafe & Bistro”. A really nice place with a great view. The interior design is very fresh and cozy and i will definitely go back there. But not for the shrimp sandwich. It was ok, but thats all. And for that price it was not really worth it. It was very small and pretty tasteless. A disappointment to be honest. but my company was very happy about their food. The sandwiches looked really nice and big, the salads looked very nice (i will definitely go for the beet root salad next time), and the sweets looked delicious. And they also had some good Ipa. I was there during daytime but i can imagine that it is a really nice place to hang out during nice summer evenings in their outdoor serving spot.
It is still only August, i know. But i recently found out that i will be really trendy this upcoming Autumn. One of the most popular colors on the fashion market for this Autumn is red. A color that i love and wear a lot. Especially on my lips. And it doesn’t matter which kind of red, dark red, light red, coral red, you name it. So for you who also adore this strong color will be happy to know that the boutiques and online stores will be filled with this wonderful color during the colder months of this year.
The color red mostly stands for energy, love and passion, but it is also a very dominant color and not everyone likes to get the attention that the color can give you. Luckily, the trendy color is not only for clothes. There is several accessories to chose between. Perfect to wear with a more simple outfit that has a color that are not standing out too much. I have collected some examples of trendy accessories that goes with the color red. And i will continue to share some awesome fashion and accessories during this Autumn since one of my favorite colors is on the trend list this year.

Of you feel like having a relaxing day with a cold beer and some nice finger food to eat, what is better than ordering a portion of calamares? Last time i had some of them was when i went to Marsaxlokk for their fish market during the Sundays. Perfect for me since i am a pesceterian. We bought some nice freshly caught tuna and shrimps that we was supposed to put on the barbecue for the evening. But before that we still needed to eat some lunch. And we are not that often in Marsaxlokk which made it feel even more important to try out some nice restaurant.
We went to a restaurant called iPlace. Since we where there on a Sunday most of the places we had checked out before was closed. The food at the iPlace was maybe not the best but it worked. And i guess the name of the place is because they give everyone an ipad to check the menu. For me it mostly felt like a failed try to give the restaurant a more modern touch.
My company was ordering different types of food like bruschetta, mushrooms in garlic, sausages and other pretty common things. Everything tasted good but average. My favorite of everything that was ordered to the table was for sure the calamares and my ice coffee with amaretto flavor. they where actually really good, but also hard to fail with. I actually got really bad calamares one time in Spain, that was horrible, but that story is for another time.
I love trying out new apps, especially when it comes to good training apps. Unfortunately i am not 100% satisfied with a lot of them but a little while ago i downloaded a training app that i really enjoy using. The name of the app is: 30 Day Fitness Challenge. I think you can kind of figure out what the application is about by just reading its name, but if not, i will explain it for you and also tell why i like it so much.
The app is very simple. You just download it (i am a Android user so i downloaded it from Play Store). And the fitness app is free, which make me like it even more. Open it up, create an account and start browse between the different workouts that the app is offering. You can find the following options in the menu:
The great thing with this training app is that you can chose different grades of difficulty. It means that this app is suiting people who is both beginners when it comes to training and for people who already have pretty good physics. Chose a plan and a grade and start doing your workout. You need no weights, and you can easily follow the workout plan from your home. The workout is varying from day to day and get a little bit harder for each day, just to make you push the limits a bit more for every day you do the workout. You following a 30 day schedule and can see how much you have completed by percent. For every exercise you are doing there is a video showing how to do the exercise. If you still are not 100% sure how to do it, than you can find all the exercises in the app and how to do them more detailed.
First of all, it feels like having a little training buddy with you when you are doing the workouts at home. The exercises in the app are different from each other and it is not the same everyday. I tried 30 days challenges before but got very bored. A lot of them have the same exercises for every day, just a higher amount of reps. Personally i am using this one to make up for days where i dont feel like going to the gym. Than i can at least take around 20 minutes and do some nice exercise at home. And trust me, if you are doing everything correct and do all the repeats that the app tells you to do, than you will be sweaty and you will feel the workout afterwards. But you will need to have a lot of discipline to make it. But i think you will need to have a lot of discipline when it comes to all different kinds of home training.
