Can you eat too much chocolate?

Skrivet den 2013-01-31 kl 19:59:52 i kategorin LIVET av Jenira

Yes you can according to my stomach and I am going to say all that chocolate we ate at Serendipity was worth it, but my stomach has not been the best.  I finally purchased a pair of diesel jeans. I can wear them on my casual Friday look. It’s already Thursday and time just flies by so quickly. Yesterday I went for a run outside, because the weather has been weird here, yesterday was actually warm and today it’s cold again.  One of my friends sent me this link to a good blog for runners and that girl had a great workout schedule. I am going to try to keep doing what she is doing:

-Run 3 times a week, try to maintain Tuesday and Thursday and one day of Saturday and Sunday.

-1 day Yoga or Pilates

-1 day core – Strength and maybe 10 min run fast.

(-1 day swimming on weekends)

= that is 5 times a week and not too hard core and I will always get Friday off and one more weekday, like Wednesday or Tuesday, depending how much I have planned. So far I am able to maintain the running part and the strength but not swimming and yoga. I honestly think they are as important as the other.  I will also do Zumba once in a while. Try to plan your week training on Sunday and then make your plans after that, that way you will balance your training well.  My dear cousin mentioned that she does her training in the morning and how amazing she feels, I am NOT a morning person, but that is going to be my goal in the spring. Workout before work and have soooo much time after work. Looking forward to that.

Happy Thursday peeps!


We are celebrating our 1 year friendship thihihih corny YES indeed, but we love it!

My calender at work!

Found the one

I have been looking for a bag that reminds me of a Celine bag and I have found the perfect one (soooo happy) and I am in love again. I saw it yesterday when I passed Michael Kors store and could tell that it was their new spring collection. I want the Nude for the summer but I am a little torn, I know the blue is the new black and I love Navy Blue more than anything else. So I have not decided, which one I am saving for yet. What do you think? Both are amazing in their own way. 



Monday a non fun day

Skrivet den 2013-01-28 kl 21:03:02 i kategorin LIVET av Jenira

Monday is a day you just want to pass, for years I have told myself to do something different on Monday so I always look forward to Monday, but that plan has not happened. Well, the weekend was short as usual and I managed to do a huge closet project and the resulted the whole house to look like a war zone. But now afterwards I feel so happy to have manages all mine and hobby’s clothes to a separate closet so we don’t have to bump into each other all the time getting dressed.

I also did brunch with another couple and I always order my benedict and this was one of the better I have eaten. Well today is Mexican night again, and I am going to make Fajitas yummy in my tummy.

I heart Sunday brunch <#

A little better than before!

Craving the Nude for Spring

Skrivet den 2013-01-23 kl 04:51:44 i kategorin LIVET av Jenira

So I will probably not buy any of these purses this year, but I am craving a nice hard Nude purse for this Spring and hopefully I can find something similar and classy. I love love love Celine bags and one day I will have my own little baby to carry around. 


A classic Prada.

Short week

Skrivet den 2013-01-22 kl 17:29:20 i kategorin LIVET av Jenira

It’s already Tuesday and that makes it a short week yohooo. I had a relaxing weekend doing absolutely NOTHING. I have been cuddling with my blanket all day Sunday and I loved it. Yesterday was the Martin Luther King Day and the 2013 Inauguration when the President of the US puts his hand on the bible and signs in as the new president. I live like 20 min from DC but I didn’t feel like going by myself, and watching it live on TV in my bed was not bad at all. I was totally in love with Michelle Obamas coat. I am a coat freak for sure and I love pretty coats. I hope you all had a great weekend and it’s pretty cold outside today and probably the rest of the week. I mean, not that I go outside that much during weekdays.

Happy Tuesday friends….

I made lettuce tacos last night, a great and healthy choice.

I know its cold, but I always always crave my FroYo.

Restaurant at home

Skrivet den 2013-01-21 kl 04:45:00 i kategorin LIVET av Jenira

So I put this menu up for yesterday. I feel like I never cook anymore. I was home for a while and cooking was a easier project. Well, first time in a while we had no specific plans this weekend and I wanted to cook something fun. My really cute friend Etaf game me these spoons as a gift and I became a little more creative. I love anything bitesize. I like tasting small things in many different flavors.

So this is what I came up with:

So I made a little menu for the night :)

First course:
One bite with a swedish touch and one desi bite and one American bite, american bite. 

Main course:
Mushroom risotto with Spicy Scallops. 

As you know I love Chocolate and this is a plate for chocolate lovers like me. One cakepops, three bites and chocolate chip ice cream, chocolate mousse and Lava cake. 

I am going to tell you a secret, this dinner took me barly one hour to make and I didn't really make everything, I went to whole foods and bought some of the stuff from the food section. I mean how do I cook butter chicken for two bites? I did make the spicy scallops and they were actually great but very spicy. My point it, you don't have to be an amazing chef to put a fun and romantic dinner for your hubby. Just use your imaginations and be a little creative and these spoons was a fun way of going it. 

Be creative and make it simple and fun :)

One day left but a loooong day left

II know weekend is near and it’s a long weekend too since Monday is Martin Luther King day and I am off, yohooooo. But its going to be a looong ass day tomorrow cause my pile of work aint funny. I just have to get through it, I left today with the worst migraine ever, but after a workout and a cup of tea I think I feel better (or maybe not).

Well, Snoop and me enjoyed a new episode of Greys anatomy with some tea.  Good night everyone. 

My feet are always cold so I have a heating pad underneet my towel :)

A perfect look

Why do I love spring and summer, well you get to dress up and feel more girly and have bare legs and wear sunglasses. I love black and I love stripes and this look from one of my favorite blog Cupcakes and Cashmere just made me want spring a little more. I love this look and is so me me me as it can get. Totally in love with it.

Love this blog, she is such an everyday inspiration to me and she has published a book that I want to buy in hard cover.

Uffffff two days to Weekend

Skrivet den 2013-01-17 kl 16:08:13 i kategorin LIVET av Jenira

These two weeks has been crazy at work and I feel like I need more hours of the day, I know keep saying that. But when I come by 7 pm and suddenly it’s time to sleep again and I have been fighting to be in bed by 11 pm but that seems to be impossible. I am going try every day until I get that routine.  Last night I had the PMS and I came home dead and had to drag myself to the gym after seeing a Victoria Secret commercial. As soon as I get to the gym everything is fine but it’s a struggle to get there when I come home, I always just push myself as much as can.

It’s Thursday and I am going to try to make dinner tonight and workout so I can take tomorrow off. What should I make, something with ground beef maybe.

Ps, I saw someone instagramming about a book to be more time efficient…NEED THAT BOOK ASAP!

It's cold again, but I started running outside again, today it's suppose to snow, blaaaaah! Can't wait for spring!

My GG favorite

This dress worn by Kate Hudson is absolutely amazing and I wish I could wear it like her. It goes well with her golden hair and simple make up. She makes the dress stand out perfectly. I am in love with her here.

I am also in love with champagne colored dresses, I think she does a great job with this dress but I would wear a nicer shoe with higher heal. Does well with her tan too.

This is one trendy girl and I love the dress cause its a bit different from the ordinary dress, perfect for a Golden Globe. Love the hair and she shoes too, this is a dress I wish I could wear to a party,

Little bit of Viva Las Vegas

Skrivet den 2013-01-09 kl 14:38:01 i kategorin LIVET av Jenira

Aria Hotel, feels like my Home in Vegas, we stayed at the attached Hotel Vdara, also very nice and modern, just the way we like it.

The Strip, cold but sunny!

Favorite place to Chill at the Crystal bar in Cosmopolitan.

You can't come to Vegas and not try one of the million buffe's they have here. We went to the trendy Wicked Spoon at Cosmo. Food overload....YES!

Dinner at romantiv Julio Serrano, tapas bar at Aria.

The Strip behind us.

Our favorite moment after the Redskins game, we took it home and got a spot in Playoffs...Great Season, that is unfortunately over but it was fun as it lasted. HAIL!

At Ceasar with the "Fontana de Trevi" with the girls.

So I started my work out again yesterday, and I made up a plan to work out 3 times a week , from Monday to Friday and as much as I can during weekend. So that means 4-5 times a week, depending what’s going on that week. Not every week is the same, but I will do my best.  I will also try to buy some lunch stuff tomorrow. In Sweden I used to make great couscous salad with Hallomi or something else for lunch the day before, I need to get back to that. I also need tips, what to make for dinner. The days we do work out, it’s hard to cook and eat before 9 pm, is that normal? I know that you ideally should eat around 7 pm, but that’s not possible if we come home by 7 and want to go to the gym. How do you  guys do?

Why is it so hard to get up in the mornings? I wake up last minute and look like crap every day. I tried to go to bed early, but I ended up reading blogs on my phone till midnight…FAIL! Anyway, yesterday I had some time to go by Mac cosmetics and I didn’t fine what I needed, but I found an eye cream that’s supposed to be good and two eye shadows. I wanted something that is neutral but still little shiny and a more glittery one for party’s.  Love Mac, probably my favorite cosmetic line.

This eye cream is suppose to have coffin in it. Let's see if it can make a difference.  

One for party and one for both.

New fresh week - The new year starts here..

Skrivet den 2013-01-07 kl 14:44:55 i kategorin LIVET av Jenira

This weekend has been amazing and crap at the same time. Saturday was so much fun, because I asked all the “Football” wife’s and supporters to come over for a reunion.  I love these guys and it was nice to have them over and as usual It was overload of stuff to eat, cause I never know how much to make. Well, dinner was not made by me, because Hubbz ordered butter chicken from a restaurant. I made more desserts.  (Leilas frozen cheesecake and pannacotta )

Sunday was not as fun, I had to finish Swea all day and then I missed most of the Redskins game, however, they lost but I am so proud and I have totally fallen in love with the sport. Looking forward to next season.  So, crappy Sunday ended up with a hot shower and one episode of “Friday night lights”.

For me, the New Year starts here, with no more Swea and no more holiday eating. I have totally gained some pounds after the holiday and that’s fine, it was all worth it. But I want to be back on track and make a workout schedule again and eat better on the weekdays. I have to set up a plan.

I have not been running outside for a while, cause of the cold. This week is a bit better than last week, but I am trying to get used to run on the treadmill again until its gets a little bit warmer. Today I am going back to the gym after work and I have a new podcast that’s amazing, which makes workout so much more fun.


Dessert yummmm

Some sleep por favor

Skrivet den 2013-01-03 kl 14:59:07 i kategorin LIVET av Jenira

Some sleep would be nice, but I don’t see that happening anytime soon. I have a lot at work and no time for breathing and I have to finish all SWEA work this week, cause this is my last week as a SWEA board member, and it feels so good to only have one job and come home and not always have to think about doing more work.

I am having some friends over for Saturday and I have not even started to plan, but I feel like it will all work out in the end.  My hubbz is good at helping me so I am feeling good about it. Last night I had to come after work being a zombie, I looked like one and felt like one and somehow I managed to get to the gym, thanks to my BFF Hubby who motivates me to go to the gym. 

We came home and we are totally hooked on a new TV show called “Friday Night Lights” and it’s about a high school in Texas who has a football league called the Panters. An Amazing show, and we just finished the first season.  Can’t wait to start next season. 

So Vegas was fun, but totally overload, I loved it more when it was warmer and we could go to the pool all day, rather than the cold Vegas. I did see Tiesto and Avicii, two great DJ’s, but I think I am officially retiring from going out. I just can’t deal with it anymore. It’s been amazing, but I look forward turning 30 this year and start a new chapter in life. I want 2013 to be as amazing as 2012, but more emotionally stable. Me and Hubby are going to work out a plan for 2013 this weekend, to go through our goals and savings for this year. We want to buy an apartment and still be able to travel.  I have many New Years resolutions for 2013, not very big one, but just to have a more comfortable and happy life without much drama.

I’ll show you more pics from Vegas later.


My first CL shoe :) at Cosmopolitan Casino.

Dinner at Munias house, amazing food a la host and great peeps.

Heart this chica, met her in 2012 and my whole life changed :)

Julafton at Etafs house, the house was a dream and gave me a goal to work a little harder this year so we can buy our dream apartment. Amazing chic food and fun games time!

I hosted Christmas this year with a full christmas table filled with food from Sweden and US and we should have had more people over, cause there was too many leftovers. For dessert I made home made pannacotta with everyone's initials. A great dessert that takes no time at all to make :)

My amazing friend from Houston was here and I'l miss her as she is going back, but this year is her big wedding year and we will have so much fun together.

Christmas was fun and hectic and filled with dinners and friends and family time. Christmas 2012 was a month to remember. I hope you all had a great time. Missed you all.
