Spring it on!

Current Weather:  Snowing but not so cold!

Current Mood:  Spring – ing

Dedicated to:  March –  The beginning of a promise that better days are coming…..

Hello March! Your arrival gives me hope!

March brings so much hope, it makes me happy, joyful & optimistic. Dont get me wrong… I like all seasons, because they bring something special with them, but right now spring is my favourite. I just have had enough of winter. Trust me I love snow…but as long as it is white. Lately it has been so much rain and snow, dark short days that I literally have been feeling a “little” depressed! And the funny thing is that I see same signs on other people’s faces… which makes me even more sad!

Spring….is hope! Feeling the sun on your face, being able to get out more and feeling more positive! I mean what’s not to love about spring?

I feel that new year actually begins with spring, with March, not with January…and it makes proper sense…as the cycle of life, growth, plants.. everything starts in spring, so it really is the beginning of a new year! You dont actually know when it will start but many say it starts on 1st March. Well spring is not an exact science…it starts when its starts, leaving all of us ( or most of us) happy and optimistic!

I have been missing sunlight lately and hoping for longer days…well guess what despite the fact that it still is snowing here, rite this moment….I dont really care because I have seen signs of hope..signs of spring and that is enough for me to be optimistic for better days….

For me… spring is a promise of good things to come……

I did a fun shoot at Damstredet, Oslo a few days back and would like to share a few pics with you guys…Love combination of spring and autumn colours…Hope you enjoy!

Damstredet is a very charming place, quite central in Oslo with well preserved and inhabited wooden houses from the late 1700s and 1800s. It’s worth a visit!

Fun shoot!

My friends, loyal readers and subscribers of my blog ( they know who they are and I am so thankful for their honest opinion)…anyways what I am trying to say is that my friends have been telling me to put “fashion photos” to make it a more fun blog!

I was visiting a cousin of mine yesterday and we decided to have a fun shoot which turned out very well! Here is a little glimpse. Hope you like it!

But first of all I want to thank my sister for photos and my cousin for instructions ( she is a major manager type material, a very photogenic person who love the camera and the camera loves her back and also one of the few who encouraged me to start blogging so Thanks B! ) My sister is a born photographer! …Enough about these two…I think I ll dedicate a post to them one day!

So basically I am neither a photographer material, nor a modell material! That is me in a nutshell! But to be very honest I can take “OK” pictures…of at least food….

Enjoy yesterdays shoot…putting a few pictures! Hope you like them…and please note the tea cup! And if you have already read my first post then you should know why tea and “cup of tea” is so important to me…

What my skin needs…

Today while I was waiting for the train in freezing cold, even though I had warm clothes, jacket, scarf and gloves, I was freezing to death and shit happens every time you dont need it to happen..yes you got it right! my train was late, and those 15 minutes felt like almost 5 hours!

I couldnt think straight obviously but the moment I entered the train and found an empty seat..I felt my face was aching…seriously! It was red ( or pinkish ) and forehead and cheeks seemed so dry..well I was not surprised actually because do you know when I last pampered my skin??? Yeah like two months ago!

So here I was sitting in the train, planning to put a mixture of honey and banana, or a mixture of avocado and egg whites on my face to give it softness and glow!

But..seriously what I really needed was a ready made solution which can instantly make my skin soft and glowy. And I was lucky enough to have my favourite products ( which by the way I always have..but lack of ME TIME doesnt allow me to look at them).

Well rite now while sitting here after taking a good warm bath and after applying this amazingly brilliant cleansing polish on my face from The Body Shop, I feel fresh and so ready to hit the bed, but first let me share these beautiful products with you!

I am talking about ” Vitamin C” Daily Glow Cleansing Polish! My skin is feeling healthier and energized! And the funny thing is even on the tube it says ” DULL, TIRED, GRUMPY SKIN” Laughing out loud….because honestly I didnt notice this ever before, just wanted to give accurate information….so in short, if you have a dull, tired and grumpy skin…use this instant formula and wash it all away….

Secondly…I want to tell you about my very favourite thing, which is this Himalayan Charcoal purifying glow mask! It does wonders, you feel that, you smell it and you really feel that it has cleansed and given you the glow you have always wanted! Its good for all skin types, even if you have acne and sensitiv skin! Caution: The smell of this product might give you watery eyes and may be a little sting in eyes, but its worth using! And for those who are concerned about parabens…NO PARABENS at all! Its a beautiful formula made with bamboo charcoal, green tea leaves and organic tea tree oil.

Love these two products and totally recommend! And on this note, Good night world!
