Danish.

Last weekend I cashed in my birthday present from K and that included a weekend away in a lovely Copenhagen. A beautiful city, 30 minutes away across the bridge. We stayed in Hotel Alexandra, known for its’ well planned play with retro interior and rooms filled with exquisite furniture from giants like Arne Jacobsen andContinue reading “Danish.”

Busy bride to be.

Been busy lately! Busy with life, love, work and finding my pace. Next weekend the last part of our big move is taking place when Ks last pieces will be moved in and he is officially moved out from his other flat. Today we have celebrated Midsummer’s Eve and my parents came over and weContinue reading “Busy bride to be.”

Food porn.

I am in a real good and inspiring place right now cooking “clean” food and using all my senses in the kitchen. Not allowed: playing with phone, ipad, reading or watching tv while eating. Need to be mindful and I am getting used to sitting alone in my kitchen feeling each bite. A couple ofContinue reading “Food porn.”

Laky and lush Monday.

What has Ulrika Collvin been up to today? I’ll let you know. For breakfast I made the best smoothie, that tasted summer and ice cream: frozen mango, frozen blueberries, unsweetened cranberry juice, banana and white peach. I ran this morning. A slow, heavy and short version, but still. We went laking again. Many swims wereContinue reading “Laky and lush Monday.”

Such a Saturday.

Started out a wee bit early. Mamma is in the house and gave me a cheerful “good morning” at 6.12 am. I was not as cheerful so I did my best pretending to keep on sleeping out on the sofa until 7. I was lacking that same energy as of my mamma’s after our seafoodContinue reading “Such a Saturday.”

F-arty inspiration.

Today work was spent in an art gallery and conference disussing identity, brand, love and and awareness. We did SWOT models and had some good talks on how to move forward. We also walked around getting inspired (well some of us) by the exhibition by the painter Andreas Eriksson. Our little group with toilet humourContinue reading “F-arty inspiration.”

Scissor legs.

You know you have done a good workout when you’ve got blisters on the sole of your feet because of the crazy amount of jumping jacks and scissor legs. My legs are numb, my back is aching from the crunching twists and all the jabs. Body combat is sure taking its’ toll but so worthContinue reading “Scissor legs.”

Buttered and battered.

Oh, lovely Monday! Well, after a horrifying moment on the scales everything just felt better and better. Have not weighed myself since October and the number had increased more than I had expected. Anyway, in order to get back on track I need the numbers and the facts. I need the food plans and lotsContinue reading “Buttered and battered.”

Batman cape and 18 years.

Since I last wrote the Northener came and left, I caught the worst cold in 5 years and I celebrated Christmas with my lovely family in Skåne. I am writing to you very hungover, from my parents’ sofa in a rainy and grey Malmö. I am staying here (in Malmö, not in the sofa specifically)Continue reading “Batman cape and 18 years.”
