How does it work, Personal

Test: The viral Sand and Sky face mask – does it actually work?

As a flawed human being I am not immune to good marketing. The amount of time we spend on social media makes it a perfect place to trick our easily convinced minds and it’s not lacking of products that will miraculously change your life. Ok, an overstatement – but you get the idea. So, for the last couple of months I’ve found myself adding all kinds of shit to my shopping basket and clicking the corner x, but then it happened.. I went on and got the Sand&Sky miracle pink clay mask, made from unicorn poo on mars.

I will point out that I’m no stranger to skin care and because I’m no longer in my twenties I take that shit seriously. I’ve tried pretty much everything there is and I settled for products that actually works for me. With that said I’m always curious to new market entries for that little extra shabam and Oh man is that usually a call for disappointment.

So let’s get on to the point: Does Sand&Sky live up to the hype?

If you wonder, yes I LOVE robes. Robes is life. What I do not love is Sand&Sky. Watch the video to find out why.

Conclusion: spend your money elsewhere.

Norwegian logic: Travel to find summer during the summer

This post was outlined in the mids of the summer glory we had in May, but then June arrived with it’s lovely weather and I suddenly realised why this is logical. So it makes sense, but at the same time it doesn’t. I mean, we can actually experience long, warm and wonderful summers – and even if we don’t, who wants to throw away 70% of holiday days during the warmest months of the year to travel to hot places? Let’s be honest.. it’s more logical and giving to leave behind -20 Celsius for a warm summer day, right?

But then again I am one of them. A true to nature Norwegian – and our logic. It will be regretted in mid October. Departure for Los Angeles is coming up close and I’m so excited to share my trip with you! Since I’m not very good at regular posting, I will set a specific day for new posts (there might be some surprising ones in between though), so if you are interested to be alerted when new posts happen please subscribe to the email list. If you want follow my moves on a everyday/regular basis please feel free to follow me on Instagram where I post stories and captions every day (button in header).

Come join in on leaving summer for summer (which feels pretty good right about now) and take a part in Norwegian logic. I look forward to sharing with you and please share your holiday habits with me in the comments below – I would love to know if this is a global phenomenon.

5 Brilliant Norwegian laws that will make you question humankind.

It’s not unusual to trip over articles about silly laws around the world. What surprises me is Norwegians lack insight into our own tragicomic laws. I did quick google search and let’s just say that I wasn’t impressed. What it taught me is that we love to make fun of American laws, but that we lack the self insight to humour ourselves by our own stupidity. So, to help correct this awry image I’ve taken the liberty to list five nonlogical laws of this wonderful country we call home.

Doesn’t this make you want to be a naughty person? Let’s run around in the forest picking mushrooms dressed in balaclavas while drinking double rum&cokes! I’m not going to encourage you to help out with the prostitution business, but you get my drift. Actually in most small cities you’re not allowed to buy food after 1am on the weekends, so let’s make it in to a picnic! You see, some politician thought food queues was the answer to the question “why do drunk people fight?”.

So there you go. Norwegians aren’t any better with legislation than anyone else. It might not be the most serious of laws, but good luck with the law enforcement. We tend to make up new laws without correcting old ones, like the prostitution law, which makes us end up with ironic laws like these. Or think for that matter: let’s forbid something that grows wild all around us!

Got to love Norwegian logic.

På gjensyn!
