Three of the day #11

Don’t think that my long break from blogging means that I’ve forgotten about my three of the days, because it definitely does not. I think this might be my first summer- 3ad ever, so hopefully I won’t let you down! Haha.

Advice of the day:

Take advantage of the sun! The weather has been really on and of this summer, but lately it’s been generally good. So my advice is to take advantage of this. Go to the beach, or just read in the sun in your garden. Or take a page right out of my book and take a few selfies in the best lighting there is, natural light! There are endless things to do outside when you’re not half-freezing to death (I live in Norway, so I’d know). Bonus tip: Get a new pair of sunglasses and take some cool pics while you’re at it 😉 

Motovation  of the day:

Since a lot of us are out on summer break, I don’t really know how much motovation is needed, but just incase your feeling down or not on break, we’re doing this right now, haha. Okay, so there are a lot of cool things going on right now, right? The sun, concerts, everyone bubbling of joy while daydreaming about the vacations. But what’s the best thing going on atm, you ask? Sales! June is the designated sales month of the season, and I personally, am here for it, and so should you be. So go out and see how much you can get for how little or buy something you’ve always wanted. June-shopping works for every budget! But if you really don’t have any money to spare right know, go outside and soak up some vitamin D. Free and guaranteed too make you feel great! 

Fashion tip of the day:

Honestly, you can’t go wrong with a bikini top and high waisted jeans or shorts for your lounging, beaching (coming for you oxford dictionary 2018) or basically any other outdoor vacation stuff. Just bring along a t-shirt to throw on before entering a store. 

Have a great day! 

Happy Summer!

Hi guys!

 

It`s been a while since my last post. Honestly I`ve just been so busy with school and all. I have literally never had any more schoolwork than I did this year, and the last few weeks they just kept pilling on work `till the point where we basically didn’t have time to sleep, ha-ha. And obviously I could have thrown in a couple of posts here and there, but I didn`t feel like I was in the right mind space to blog because of all the stress, and I don`t really want to half ass it as a really do care about my blog.

So now that it`s finally summer, I am ready to plunge back into the world of blogging! I have so much to update you on, as well as plans and projects for this summer break that I am just so ready to start. I even made a new Instagram to mark this new beginning, and I will be putting it up on my blog as soon as I have posted a few things on there.

I am super excited about this summer and I am super excited about blogging again. I hope you all get to do what you want to do this holiday, whether it is travel, work on a special project, party, read or just relax and sleep `till noon. Maybe even all of it! I hope you have a wonderful time 🙂 

Happy summer!

Ovenbaked Veggies! <3

I am obsessed with ovenbaked vegetables lately! They’re so good, filling and low kcal 🙂 

And super versatile! 

They can be eaten:

-on their own

-with coucous/quinoa

-with potatoes (or fries/sweetpotato fries)

-with beans

These are the ones I’m having today.


Bell pepper, zucchini,tomato, red onion and avocado. I also often have eggplants. The spice I’ve used is garlic powder. 

After I took this picture I drisselef some mushroom slices over. You can also add sweetcorn 🙂 

What is your preffered method of preparing vegetables? 

What should I read next? 

So I thought that for my next “Zoë’s Book Club” I could do a recommended book from one of you guys. I know I personally love getting people to read my favorite books (and tweets tbh), and I know I’m not the only one! So what is a book that you would recommend that the whole world read? It can really be anyting.

A classic


A horror book


Some romance


Even a ridiculess YA novel (my guilty pleasure) 


So let me know! And we can share out thoughts and feelings on your favorite piece of literature! 🙂

Zoë`s Book Club #1 -Thanks for the Memories

Instead of going with a book I`ve never read before by an author I don`t know much of, i decided to go with a book by my favorite author, Cecelia Ahern, that has stuck with me ever since I read it as a young teenager. “Thanks for the memories”. Basically, I`ve been super busy lately, but also I genuinely want to share this amazing book with you!

Summary:

A woman (Joyce) has a miscarriage when she falls  down the stairs. Her life is saved by a blood transfusion. When she wakes up she suddenly has knowledge she never had before. Like architectural history and how to speak Italian.  While in the midst of her divorce and sorrow she keeps running in to a (handsome) american (Justin). They seem to be drawn to each other and are in actuality tied by a magical connection.

Favorite Character:

My favorite character in this book is Joyce`s father. This is because he loves her so much and keeps supporting her in everything she does even though he is sort of confused and scared. The relationship between him and his daughter is also adorable. The “father-with-dementia” concept is in no way a new one, but it`s usually just downright sad. Here I felt he was much more layered and not just an object of pity, but rather a support and with a good sense of humor.

Favorite Quote:

“I’m never overwhelmed or under it either; just nicely whelmed. I’m OK. Nothing spectacular but sometimes special. I look in the mirror and see this medium average person. A little tired, a little sad, but not falling apart.”

Favorite Part:

When the hairdresser says she can`t possibly cut off all that long gorgeous hair, and Joyce is like “sure you can, just like this” and takes the scissor and cut`s it off herself.

Three life lessons:

  1. Memories aren’t just moments, they`re parts of us. And that no matter what happens, we can find the strength to move on and make new ones.
  2. If you aren`t happy with something, then change it. it`s never to late to make life changes and do what`s best for you.
  3. As always is Cecelia Aherns books, that there is some magic in the world. Not fairies and unicorns, or anything like that. But deja vu`s and insane amounts of everyday beauty, and maybe even soulmates.

Rating:

A solid 4/5 stars.

It`s so beautiful and the charcters are great, but it is slightly to fairytale-ish.

 

Would I recommend it?

Yes!
