THIS MUSTARD COLOR

Hi sweeties!

Today has been such a good day. I started this day with driving the boys to kindergarten and from there I went to the gym. I forgot to tell you that I started TRX training. I’ve been to 5 classes already and I cant even begin to describe how my body felt after the first workout. I struggled getting out of bed even. Have any of you tried TRX? I’m addicted already! Before heading to bed with the second episode of Broen 3 (which by the way is amazing) I wanted to share this outfit with you. I think this mustard color must be one of my favorites. I feel super comfortable in this color and just love the light it gives to my skin. Together with this white high waisted short it makes this a relaxed but yet classic look. The purse with its golden details also gives this look the little extra.

Have a great night everyone! :* See you tomorrow!

Hei skjønninger!

I dag har vært en god dag. Jeg startet dagen med å kjøre guttene til barnehagen og derfra dro jeg til Spicheren. Jeg har glemt å fortelle dere at jeg har begynt med TRX. Jeg har vært i 5 timer allerede, og jeg kan ikke engang begynne å beskrive hvordan kroppen min føltes etter den første timen. Jeg slet med å komme ut av sengen og det var forferdelig å bare sette seg ned. Har noen av dere prøvd TRX? Jeg er hekta allerede og tror dette kan gi meg den styrken jeg sårt trenger! Før vi går til sengs med den andre episoden av Broen 3 (som forresten er helt fantastisk) vil jeg dele dette antrekket med dere. Jeg tror denne sennep fargen må være en av mine favoritter. Jeg føler meg super komfortabel i denne fargen og elsker lyset den gir til huden min. Kombinert med denne hvite shortsen er dette en avslappet, men klassisk look. Vesken med sin gull detaljer gir antrekket det lille ekstra syntes jeg.

Ha en flott kveld alle sammen! :* Sees i morgen!









 

INSTANT GLOW WITH GREEN PEEL

12107755_10154386103398569_6619664785852852771_n

                                                                                                               – Sponset behandling

Ja takk til øyeblikkelig glød! Jeg har testet ut GreenPeel, og resultatet er fantastisk!

Før helgen startet var jeg så heldig å bli spurt om jeg ville teste ut den mye omtalte ansiktsbehandlingen Green Peel. Dette er behandlingen norske kjendiser sverger til ettersom den gir en “øyeblikkelig” spenst og glød til huden som man ikke kan sminke seg til. Denne unike hudbehandlingen er utviklet av hudlege Christine Scrammek. Behandlingen rensker opp i død hud og optimaliserer hudens funksjoner fra innerst til ytterst. Green Peel har vært på markedet i over 50 år, og har også vunnet første pris som nr 1 i verden på naturlig hudfornyelse. Det er faktisk helt unikt at peelingen er helt uten kjemiske ingredienser.

Jeg var hos skjønne Therese på Klinikk Nova på Hamresanden. Peelingen består av håndplukkende grønne urter som er blandet med naturlige enzymer som reagerer sammen med massasje i ansiktet. Under selve masseringen som i mitt tilfelle varte i 2 minutter kunne det gjøre litt vondt, men 2 minutter går ganske fort og jeg lukket øynene og fokuserte på sluttresultatet, som til gjengjeld var helt fantastisk!

Green Peel kommer i 4 styrker. Jeg fikk alternativ 2, en Fresh Up.

  1. Party/ekspress peel som gir glød og en ren hud. Varighet ca 30 min Kr 990.
  2. Fresh Up. Gir rens, glød og jobber dypere med bla store porer. Varighet ca 45 min Kr 1100.
  3. Energi går dypere ned i huden og renser godt, samtidig som den gir en enda bedre hudfornyelse. Varighet ca 1 time. Pris kl 1400.
  4. Classic er den største og dypeste behandlingen som fornyer huden på en helt unik måte. Her må man forvente å flasse en del i ettertid, men resultatet skal være fantastisk. Varighet 1,5 time. Her er en etterbehandling inkludert i prisen. Pris 2500.

Etter å ha tatt Green Peel uavhengig av styrke så må man bruke Green Peel hjemmeprodukter for optimal effekt av behandlingen. Pris kr 595.

Jeg er iallefall superfornøyd med Green Peel og spesielt overrasket over effekten. Under ser dere bilder fra under behandlingen og litt før og etter.

Hvis dere har noen spørsmål så er det bare å spørre i vei!

Håper dere alle har en fin start på uken! God mandag 🙂


Yes to instant glow! I’ve tested out GreenPeel, and the result is amazing!

Just before the weekend started, I was so lucky to be asked if I wanted to try out Green Peel. This treatment provides an “instant” resilience and radiance to the skin that no makeup can give you. This unique skin treatment was developed by dermatologist Christine Scrammek. The treatment cleans up the dead skin and optimizes skin’s functions from the inside out. Green Peel has been on the market for over 50 years, and has also won first prize as No. 1 in the world on natural skin renewal, it is actually quite unique that exfoliation is completely without chemical ingredients.

I was with the beautiful Therese at Klinikk Nova. Exfoliation consists of hand picking green herbs mixed with natural enzymes that react with massaging the face. During the massage as in my case lasted 2 minutes it hurt a little, but 2 minutes goes pretty fast and I closed my eyes and focused on the end result, which in return was absolutely amazing!

I’m super happy with Green Peel and especially surprised by the effect. Below you can see images from during the treatment and some before and after.

Have a great Monday everyone! 🙂

FUN WITH LAYERING

DSC01607

Fall has already made its mark and the layering game has begun. The weather is still shifting and this makes dressing up hard at times. When it comes to the layering game I love everything about it. Mixing and playing with different styles and colors. I started this look with this fantastic wool vest. I don’t often wear the color grey, but when I saw this vest hanging in the store I just knew that it would be hanging out with me very soon. I love that it’s longer in the back and the details on the sides was one of the first things that caught my eye. I wanted to keep the dark grey color and chose one of my old favorites in my fall collection to have under. Since the weather was so beautiful here today I chose to complete the look with black tights and a pair of military green shorts that I just love to wear. They are just so comfy! Combined with black boots and a burgundy beanie I felt that this was the perfect look for autumn. So, what do you guys think about it?

Love, Monica.

STEPPING INTO AUTUMN

DSC01509

Hi sweeties! 🙂 Hope you had a weekend full of fun and some quality time with the ones you love. We’ve had a lovely time the whole family, going to the park, the movies and spending some time with the whole family from both sides. A hectic but very fun weekend! 🙂

When it comes to this outfit I just love this sweater and the boots. Military green must be one of my favorite autumnal colors, along with Burgundy off course 🙂 Even though the weather is getting colder I love how this effects the nature, the colors are changing and the ground is being decorated with beautiful leaves. I’m looking forward to this season, being tucked in with comfy scarfs in the beautiful colors of autumn. What is your favorite part of autumn?

Have an amazing day everyone! Love, Monica

MOVED BY THE WIND

Before I start talking about the main topic of this post, I just want to mention how glad I am for fridays. It’s such a good feeling to wake up in the morning knowing that the weekend is just around the corner. We all need something to look forward to and fridays gives me just that feeling.

So lets jump into the topic of this post. Today I wanted to start this weekend with showing you guys this very special dress I absolutely fell in love with. The silk fabric, shape and color of this dress is just amazing and I cant wait for one special occasion to come, so I can wear it again. This dress is a unique design from the very talented designer Egidijus Rainys.

This shoot was taken at the Opera house, “Kilden” in the city where I live. Wearing this dress and standing with this particular building in the background, I felt both powerful, confident and graceful. Can you blame me?

Photographer Kalviknes took this shoot, and working together with him is always very exiting. He has a way to find the perfect locations and capturing each and every special moment.

FOTOSHOOT AND OPENINGNIGHT OF STUDIOSTAVANGER

12049356_10154350680058569_8254123343460896210_n

Hi everyone! 🙂

Hope you’re having a great sunday so far. This weekend has been busy, but very exiting! The weekend started with a fotoshoot for a bridal store called “Eventyrbruden” in Stavanger. The photographer behind this shoot is a very good friend of mine and we have worked together many times before. He is amazing, and I cant wait to see the result and share it with you 🙂 The shoot took place in a beautiful suite at Scandic Park Hotel. Styling: Madeinheaven

Even more exiting was that my good friend just got himself a new studio together with two other very talented photographers. StudioStavanger is just breathtaking. I loved the ruff style in the studio together with the furnitures and everything else in it. The opening night was really successful, I’m so proud of my friend for following his dream and taking some risk to get where he want to be. Isn’t that the key to success?

Today it’s family dinner at my mums place, but before heading out I wanted to share some pictures of the backstage photos and the opening night.

WHITE AND BLUE DRESS

DSC01334

Hi sweeties.

This white and blue backless dress with double slit has been one of my favorites this summer. I think the two colors are great together and the print is complementing the dress very well. I love long maxi dresses, but Its rare to find a maxi dress that works together with your body, something I feel that this dress really do. Together with high sandals and gold accessories you have an elegant and classic look that works perfectly during the day and for a party.

Im heading to bed, tomorrow will be a very exiting day, I cant wait to tell you more about it later 🙂

Sweet dreams.

WILD BEACH IN AKKO

This photoshoot must be one of my favorites! I was amazed by this beach with its ruff edges. The weather is finally starting to get better and tomorrow the sun will be shining. It will be my last day here in Israel so I believe I will be doing some tanning. We have just enjoyed a lovely dinner, and before I start on dessert I just wanted to share this pictures with you. I just love this dress, its so comfortable and I love the warm orange color.

Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂

WARMING UP TO AUTUMN

Babyblue on darker days gives me just the right feeling. It’s a wonderful color that does something with my mood. The summer in Norway has been really bad, so it’s a little sad to be packing away my summer clothes before I even got a chance to use them. I wanted to share this look with you where I’m warming up to autumn with white and babyblue combined with one of my favorite colors on the autumn palette, brown. This look is ruff and elegant at the same time! I also have to say that I love this hairstyle. When you have a bad hair day, make yourself a donut 😉
