Just a thursday at home..

Today I've been baking bread. I made a no-knead speltbread that I found on Trinesmatblogg. It's so simple and easy. The dough has to rest for 8-20 hours so I made it last night. But no kneading and no touching and very little to clean afterwords. The bread taste so good. Highly recommended!:)

take care

I'm not feeling good today. I'm at home drinking tea and taking care of my self. It helps to pamper myself..:) By the way, earlier I wrote about wanting to use more natural products for my skin. This Moisturizing Mask from Aubrey is great! I'm going to try more of their natural products. And the best of all is much cheaper than the brands I used to buy. (The nailpolish is not so natural yet, but I'm getting there...) Nothing is better than buying things that are better for my skin, the environment and my wallet as well:)  Have a wonderful weekend!

I went to a local flea market yesterday. A really crowded one. Many nice things, but I don't like it when it's too crowded. So I mainly concentrated on the book section where I found 10 lovely books for Ozzy. Many nostalgic books from my own childhood as well.

friday evening

Photos taken by my husband Michael Andersen.
It's friday evening, my favorite time of the week:) Relaxing with a cup of tea after work. I put up some old photos my husband took many years ago (that I found in our basement) up on the kitchen wall.. Maybe I will buy a nice tape to tape them with...but it seems like everyone is doing this at the not sure:) But, I might do it anyway:P Have a wonderful weekend!

favorite products

Ok, so this is a really girly post:) I usually don't blog about cosmetics, so this is really an exception. I like make up and other cosmetics and I like to try new products, but these products have been my favorites for awhile now.  I'm the makeup-girl among my friends and they often ask me what I use so here it goes:) (I'm NOT sponsored by anyone by the way:)
-Hairproducts Redken shampo and conditioner.
-Hypnotic Poison  eau de toilette by Dior. My favorite scent for many years. It's definitely me.
-Bodywash, body lotion and lip balm by Burt's Bee
-Ozzy is using Burt's Bees shampo and conditioner.
-Orofluido elixir oil for my frizzy hair. Love this!
-Dermalogica skin care system. Daily microfoliant is my favorite product.
-i.d bare minerals Foundation and Mineral veil. The best!
-Nylon body towel from Muji. Perfect for scrubbing and exfoliating the whole body. And it last forever.
-Nailpolish from Chanel. Always the coolest colors. But I also have many cheaper ones.
-L'occitane Almond shower oil and shea butter hand cream. The shower oil is perfect for shaving as well.
-Bourjois eyeshadow. The best eyeshadows! Marron Glace is my favorite color. Timeless and classic brown color I've used since the 90s. Too bad they don't sell them in Norway.
-Davines alchemic copper conditioner. Perfect for keeping my haircolor fresh and shiny.
-Skinflash by Dior. Perfect for dark circles under the eye.
-Mac blush in Peaches and Eye kohl in my favorite color Teddy.

I have been wanting to switch to more natural products. I've been thinking about Origins for my skin. Anyone who has been using their products? I have tried some of L`occitane and  Burt Bees products, but not convinced when it comes to faceproducts:) If any of you have any other tips especially about natural products, share with me!:) I want to use products that`s good for me and the environment:)
