Told you I would get it!!:D

Gooooooooooot the oiiiiiil!!

Yupp, so I got the “famous” coconut oil today (Finally). It was nearly impossible to find, I swear it was like finding a needl in a haystack. I finally found it at this health shop called SunkostThe shop lady was kind of serious though, not a single smile on her face 😦 And on top of it all instead of nicelley telling me what I could use it for, she in pratically gave me a lecture at the same time as she kind of made me feel stupid hahah. To make a long story short, I’ve never been out of a store as fast as today hahah.  I did get a nice magazine with a bunch of healthy tips and facts.

I’m trying it for the first time on my skin today. I can notice how it feels kind of strange in the places where I have thicker/dryer skin. At first it felt really oily, but after some time the oil sort of disappears at the same time as my skin feels softer. My hands feel a little weird though, sort of dry but greasy somehow. The lady at the store told me that it’s super healthy to eat, and can even be used to remove fungus/yeast or itches in “strange” areas haha. She also warned me about putting it on my face to often, cause it can clog pores.

Other than my short shopping trip and my few hours of work, I haven’t done much today. I will be leaving pictures downbelow of the oil. I would love to hear about your experience with coconut oil, or any other oils. Feel free to leave a comment downbelow.

Nighttime chill and coconut oil

 

Helleu

Today I haven’t done that much. I worked for a few hours then I went home to simply chill. Also I had some company over for a while. I plan on trying to post at least one blog entry every day, so at days like these I might not have so much to tell you about. What do you guys usually do when you have slow days ?

Nighttime chill results in the typical nighttime scrolling (that we all know so well). It’s at this time we start of by googling a simple recipe, and some how find ourselves reading about different stool types at 3 in the morning. I happened to stumble upon an article about coconut oil during one of my amazing scrolling sessions. It seams like it’s used by quite a lot of people for many different things. I’ll just list up some of the things people use it for down below. Have any of you tried it out? Is it really as good as they say? I even read that it could help remove warts!! It all sound to good to be true, but of course I will be trying this magical coconut oil (just in case it’s actually that good).

I was thinking that I would like to read a new book, so if you have any suggestions leave them in the comments 🙂

Pressure to do something

I guess we all get that pressuring feeling sometimes, making us feel like we need to do more than we already do (great explanation). You know what I mean. Seeing people your own age or younger constantly traveling, moving to new apartments, getting new jobs, having kids, buying exotic fruit, you get my drift. It’s not a feeling of envy or jealousy, but more like time pressure. It’s amazing how some people just instantly know what they want to do with their lives from they are young children. I wish I had that ability.

The time pressure you start feeling after you are done with high school is terrible. That’s why I decided to take a gap year to really be sure of what I want to study further. I personally feel like it would be a shame to waste a bunch of money and energy on a random study, that I’m not even sure I want to take. I did get excepted to start University this fall, but I wasn’t sure if it was the right kind of study for me. I see more and more students take a gap year after “high school”(videregående) here in Norway, so I guess I’m not the only one feeling this way. It’s a major decision to make at such a young age.

Things that I have noticed about having a gap year, is how much you start missing your friends in the start. If you live in a small place like me, this will have a huge impact on your social life. At the same time I’ve started to hang out and talk a lot more with people outside of my social circle, which is pretty nice.

Even though I work a bit and do other things, I can’t wait to start University next fall. I already kind of miss the feeling of being in school, strange enough as it might sound. Just constantly having something to do, and always having a bunch of people to talk to and hang out with. I even started missing having classes, and just always learning new things.

Despite how much I miss school, I’m going to enjoy this gap year to it’s fullest. I might travel for a couple of months this winter. Most importantly I will be working as much as I can, so I’m as prepared as possible for next year.

I’d love to hear your opinions or experiences, so pealse do leave a comment 🙂

Dressing for Fall

Fall can be a tricky season to dress for. I personally always strugle a bit to find new fall outfits. I think it comes from not really knowing if i should  put away my light summer clothing for good, or if it’s to early to start packing up my warm winter jumpers. That’s why I got so inspired when I found these great dresses at Zalando. I feel like they are a great fit for this fall, and they seem suuuuper comfortable. The colors are really neutral and not attention seaking at all, so they seam great for casual wear as well as for work.
