A summary of summer through my iphone so far!
A summary of summer through my iphone so far!
It saddens me that beautifully written literature that forms minds, carves understanding, and builds depth is no longer as valued in today’s world. What is written may only be read through screens, and the content of these screens seem materialistic, product-placed, and build empty headed drones that no longer question what they read.
Maybe it’s not the screens, but the content of these screens. Philosophers used to be adored and seen as the wisest of men. Now taking those positions are politicians, presidents who rule a corrupt self-serving system that abides to those who have money and have monopoly on what media we see. It is a shame that philosophers and their ideas and relentless questioning of the world we live in aren’t revered anymore, but taken little consideration to.
Sure, ideas don’t build cities but they are the foundations of it. I find myself falling wholeheartedly into books and poetry and philosophical concepts, but I feel I find myself close to alone in that regard. At least, there are no forums for this kind of expression on the internet. Facebook is for photoshopped images and selling a product that is yourself, the food you eat, and parties you don’t take part in. Twitter and Instagram is quite the same.
Where is the room for that eye-opening, heart-wrenching, life-changing, and fucking desirable texts, transcripts, novels, books, quotes, poetry, the written word that is written to inspire people and to teach kindness and love and challenges us to use our language and express the way we feel because isn’t that what’s most important after everything that we make damn sure and scream loudly and get in better touch with our inner philosopher like what does this all mean and why the fuck are we here.
Because I think everybody kind of already knows how to be happy, sometimes we just need a reminder.
Sunday was made a roadtrip down the southern coast with my cousins. It was truly refreshing to swap sounds of traffic to bird twitter and stop over in small collective farmlands and harbours. Not to mention the 5 week old kittens!
It is now mid-summer and only 2.5 months until my departure to Australia! A midst the sun, fun, and malibou vodka I wanted to share with you some of my own so called life hacks that might bring you some ideas.
Have any other hacks? Share them!
Just last night I played around in the depths of my consciousness, walking on water, talking to animals, and eating a kitchen full of chocolate..well because I wanted to! For a moment I was heading into a nightmare, so I just let myself wake up.
Lucid dreaming is this insanely cool concept where your body is asleep yet you are still conscious enough to have complete control over your dreams! There are absolutely no limitations to what you can create and something anyone can do with some practice.
Oh my quad Becky, look at that squat!?
This is by no means nor ever will be a fitness blog, simply that isn’t my interest. However, we do love healthy happy bodies that make healthy happy minds! So, without further ado, I have accepted a 30-day 100-squats challenge. The rules are quite self explanatory and I have only heard good things about this challenge!
I hope to bring you better than good results and if any of you want to try or have already done this, share your progress! Checking off day one. Gonna drop it like a squat all month.
Above are some photos of myself in the woodsy setting of Pålsjö. My friend Emelie and I had been chatting about having a photo session for quite a while and I’m really happy we finally got it done! More photos are on their way, with Emelie as well, so check in!
I cannot even fathom that I’ll be packing onwards to Australia in september! The flight is booked, dates are set, and I’ve had a couple meetings with my mentor regarding the usual questions one might have moving to another continent for the first time ALONE. *Pause to breathe* I’ve already made a checklist of the absolutely necessary things that I need to see, do, or experience down under. Can september arrive fast enough? Only thing now is to wait…
There are times in life where people don’t give you what you want, but you don’t have to settle for disappointment. When life gives you lemons, manipulate the lemon salesman.
If we want equality within gender we need to stop assigning specific mannerisms and erase limitations of stereotyping. How is it not so goddamn clear yet that we are all individuals in our own right and that isn’t based upon what we have in-between our legs?
It frustrates me that when a woman is strong and determined she is seen as bossy whereas a man showing emotion, a pussy. Each sex has BOTH masculinity and femininity. We need to obliterate the term ”feminism” because not many actually know what it means anymore and are pushing it to a point where there is no equality.
Why is it such an insult for a man to be called a woman? We need to stop oppressing those who don’t fit a criteria that is outdated! We need to redefine the source of this issue because you already know all of this, and I’m not the first to write about it! Let’s crack open these narrow-minded neanderthals and welcome them to the 21st century.
Well this recipe is just insanely yum. Kiwis are the underdogs of the berry family and are so rich in vitamin C, fibres, and antioxidants. If that doesn’t impress you, avocados have been shown to increases memory, reduce stress, and quicken your metabolism. Eat ‘em when they’re just ripe. Mmm….we like green.

Good afternoon, Readers! Hope the sun is shining on you as well! I’ve decided to add a new category: #iphonelife where every once in a while, I’ll share some everyday photos and happenings. This adorable creature is Julius, a frisky bichon frise who is absolutely affectionate and cuddle crazy. He insisted on sitting next to me on my desk while I was writing this post. What a babe!
I adore those inspiring moments where, regardless of how you are doing, they lift you up and shake you around a bit until you fall back into perspective. The way of life is big and small, concrete and earthly, and ever-changing.
Us humans have this tendency to believe that it’s always better to be somewhere else; where the sun shines brighter, the grass is greener, people are just down-right friendlier. The fact is, you forget to open your eyes and see yourself around. Look at what you have forgotten to appreciate! The windy little town of Helsingborg has it’s charms too! Especially now that summer is closing in. Get off that goddamn phone of yours and look.
Ps. For those who are interested in my flickr page, you can find it here.
