There´s a great bonus to styling and photographing food – it´s tasting it afterwards :-)

Does this sound familiar: “I really want to follow my dream, but…. first I need to go to work, then pick up the kids, then cook dinner, then….Ohhh I feel tired, I will do it tomorrow.” But tomorrow there´s a school meeting, a birthday party and you promised to help bake a cake…..and then the next day it will be the same all over again…time flies…you wish for more hours while you are waiting….and waiting…and waiting…for a chance to get that extra time to follow your passion, your dreams and goals.

Here´s the thing: NOTHING and NO ONE will suddenly come around and hand you those extra hours on a silver plate. YOU have to create it!  

If you don´t do anything about it…tomorrow will turn into never….

If you are not running your own life, it will run you!

You might wonder, analyze, judge and criticize yourself, while you worry about what might be happening and what others think of you. You think “I must do something ,” and then you put even more pace on all your chores, rather than STOP and FEEL what really is important to YOU and your life.

It is only you and no one else who are able to create the best life for yourself and make time for what you really truly want.

To change things around start making deliberate decisions. Decide what in your life is essential and non- essential. Cleanse your life from noise and distractions to create the mental space that is needed and to unlock time to create your dream life.

How to do it:

Take out a piece of paper or a journal. Draw a line in the middle of the paper.

On the left side write down all the non-essential things:

  • that drain your energy or make you feel used, sad, angry ect.
  • that you do to please other people
  • that you do to impress other people
  • that you do because you THINK you must do it, but you really don´t like doing.
  • that you wish you had the courage to say no to – but still do because you are afraid of a conflict with a friend or family member.
  • that is clearly time-wasters…(like to much TV, to much Facebook, sleeping to long and getting up late)

Now decide what on this list you can let go of right now!

Say DELETE AND LET GO and put the thing behind you. Stop waisting anymore of your precious time. You must in no way use more energy on this thing.

Life is SHORT. The time you have, is the time you have – use it well!

Now on the right side of the paper write down all the things you would LOVE to do – all the essential in your life. All that matters to you – all that you want to spend more time on!

Write down all the essential in your life:

  • that makes your body feel good and strong
  • that make you feel utterly excited
  • that make you feel good about yourself
  • that make you feel rested and peaceful
  • that that make you feel happy and full of joy
  • + dreams and goals you wish to make real

Now go do much more of that!

In order to be the best version of yourself and feel happy, change your behavior so you spend your limited time on things that are important to you and to your life.

Opt out of all the non-essential things in your life – these non-essential things should not take your attention and use of your limited time.

If you allow the non-essential stuff to take over your everyday life you will simply not be happy….if you focus on the essential things you will find it easier to live wholeheartedly, develop your goals and dreams and become the best version of yourself. 

Much Love

This week I´ve been styling and photographing for Lene Bjerre, a popular danish interior brand.

I´ve personally loved their products since I was a young girl, so when they called and asked if I would get creative with their products it was an easy yes.

The romantic design of Lene Bjerre fit my own photographic style so well. Needless to say; it´s been pure creative joy to do this shoot.

Here´s a selection of some of the easter inspired photos I did.

I´ve never been much into Easter decoration, mostly because I´m not fund of that bright yellow color.

Still I wanted to do something to create a cosy atmosphere in my home.

And who´s to dictate what colors I can use anyway?

- I am, right :-)

So when I got these beautiful over-sized pastel blue coffee cups from Lene Bjerre Design, I got the idea to use them for a simple Easter decoration.

You can use anything you have around the house really; cups, mugs, small vases and pots.

The key is to choose a colour that will look pretty with the flowers you picked.

I took some large eggs, emptied them and carefully made the hole big enough for a little flower (with a large needle).

I then stuffed the coffee cups with kitchen-paper, added the egg on the top and used moss to support it.

Tip: If you have trouble fastening the egg you can use a glue-gun.

I filled the eggs with a little bit of water and added flowers. Easy and fast :-)

Perfect as table decoration for the big Easter family dinner!
