I for Irresistible Me review

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Sponsored productsOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA For a long time I`ve been wanting to try hair extensions, so when Irresisitible Me reached out to me and asked me to give it a try, I said yes. I didn`t want superlong hair,  just a little bit more thickness since I have very fine hair. As a newbie, I was overwhelmed about the clips and stuff, especially since my package came in so many piesces. But after some practice I managed juuuust fine. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I like that the extensions are made of human hair. That means I can use the same products and hair color I use on my own hair, since the extensions are made of natural fibers. Also, the color and texture of these extensions are so beautiful, and blended with my own hair the result looks really natural. And now, after testing them for a while, the conclusion is that I`m still happy with my hair extensions from Irresistible Me.

feire jul og nyttr i selveste Afrika var, naturlig nok, svrt annerledes enn hva jeg er vant til hjemme. Med sommersol, sjmat og pingviner skal det mye til f den samme julestemningen som snvr, pepperkakebaking og julekalender klarer lokke frem. Opplevelser og morsomme stunder hadde vi derimot massevis av og denne julen kommer jeg s absolutt til huske lenge. Det er ikke hvert r man inntar julemiddagen p Lighthouse Cafe i Sr-Afrika, eller ser etter giraffer utenfor vinduet fremfor raketter p nyttrsaften.

P for Pansy & Survival Island

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Noe av det mest spennende vi gjorde i Mosambik var beske Pansy Island og Survival Island. Vi startet med snorkle etter de beryktede Pansyskjellene som dere ser bilde av over - det er helt utrolig at det fine blomstermnsteret p skjellene er skapt helt naturlig! Ved lunsjtider dro vi videre til en lokal y ved navn Survival Island. Her snakker vi egen hvding, hner som lper fritt rundt og et hull i bakken som fungerende toalett ? veldig annerledes enn det vi er vant med hjemme med andre ord. Som alle andre steder i Mosambik var menneskene utrolig vennlige og gjestfrie, vi ble tatt imot p beste mte og fikk et godt innblikk i deres daglige liv p ya. Mosambik er et veldig sjarmerende land og svrt ulikt Cape Town og Sr Afrika p mange mter - for ikke snakke om Norge, haha! Mosambik og mten de lever p der nede ligner kanskje mer p det mange av oss Nordboere tenker p som "typisk Afrika." Etter 6 mneder i Cape Town har jeg enda ikke sett noen bre en eneste ting p hodet - i Mosambik var det derimot helt vanlig. 

T for touchdown Mosambique

I`m finally back and I have a lot of travelstuff for you! The last month we have been all over South Africa and Mosambique so let`s just start at the top: 

Arriving Mosambique the first day was both supernice and terrifying at the same time. The country is both tropical and beautiful and the locals are friendly, but beeing "threathened" for money by police officers was a whole new experience that I could have been without. The first couple of days we stayed in Tofo (Inhambane) at a place called Palm Grove Lodge:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  We really liked this place and it was nice to just be able to relax a bit before we started our Padi scubadiving course with Liquid Dive Adventures. I will tell you more about it tomorrow :) 

T for The Ritual of light

P torsdag mtte jeg Nora og Astrid Helen for dra p pressevisning av julekolleksjonen fra Rituals. Eventet ble holdt p Sawan hvor vi fikk deilig mat, full gjennomgang av kolleksjonen og muligheten til utfre et hyggelig lysrituale selv ogs. Som navnet tilsier er kolleksjonen inspirert av tradisjonen med tenne et lys for de vi er glad i. Dette er noe spesielt mange av oss gjr n fr jul og dermed er det et passende tema for en julekolleksjon. Jeg har allerede testet den ut og er storfornyd! Produktene lukter appelsin og kanel, en krydret og st kombinasjon som gr rett hjem hos meg.

P for poolside at Tintswalo Atlantic

Lazy days by the pool is the best, right? It`s still a bit chilly down here in South Africa but since Tintswalo Atlantic had a heated pool that was no problem at all! We had the pool all to ourselves and was playing around like kids, highly inapropriate since Tintswalo is a five-star lodge of course, but I haven`t laught so hard in ages. The sorroundings and staff at Tintswalo really made us relax and just enjoy! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As a historic and still-working fishing village, Hout Bay was an exciting place to visit. The colourful and beautiful scenery down at the harbour made my day - you know how I love those colours!

T for Tintswalo Atlantic

I have stayed at a lot of hotels before, but never have I been more mesmerized than during our stay at Tintswalo Atlantic. The luxury started out when we got a private transfer from our house in Cape Town to Tintswalo`s beautiful location outside Hout Bay. Situated just below Cahpmans Peak, Tintswalo Atlantic is actually the only hotel located inside Table Mountain National Park! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The five-star luxury lodge has 10 suites and one presidental suite, each named after and decorated in the style of a famous island. We got to see all of them and it was really impossible to pick a favorite - just look at these details! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A for afternoon tea at Mount Nelson Hotel

In breathtaking surroundings, Mount Nelson Hotel in Gardens offers one of the most lavishing dining experiences in Cape Town. The huge pink hotel is almost to good to be true and can make any grown woman feel like a Barbiedoll. Having Afternoon Tea there with Morten a couple of weeks ago was abolutely one of my best moments in Cape Town so far! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

K for Krger Park safari

Under "studybreak" sist uke dro vi opp til Krger nasjonalpark for et par dager med proper safari life ute i bushen. Mlet var spotte leopard, buffalo, lve, nesehorn og elefant - bedre kjent som Afrikas fem store. Dessverre ble det verken lve eller leopard men resten kunne vi sjekke av listen. Dessuten s vi bde giraff, gepard og sebra (mine absolutte favoritter i tillegg til lve), s jeg var egentlig strlende fornyd! P gtur i Marloth Park, alts stedet vi leide hus, kom vi s tett p en flokk sebraer at jeg nesten kunne klappe dem - best moment of my life, sier jeg bare.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

L for Lion`s Head

Mellom Table Mountain og Signal Hill ligger fjellet Lion`s Head med utsikt over hele Cape Town. Dette er en populr rute for bde lokale og turister s stien er perfekt for bde sndagsturer og trening. Vi tok den bratte turen opp til toppen som en treningskt og det kan virkelig anbefales - utsikten fra 669 moh er lett verdt det ekstra strevet.

// Lion`s Head is located just between Table Mountain and Signal Hill. From the top you have amazing view all over Cape Town and the hiking trail is perfect for both relaxing walks and hardcore workouts. I can truly recommend doing it as a workout tho, the breathtaking view from the top at 669 meters above sea level taste so much better when you have to sweat a little extra. // OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

V for vacation tips

#sponsetproduktOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Med n eneste koffert og hele 3 mnd i Cape Town var det liten vits bruke koffertplass p en rekke hr- og sminkeprodukter. Denne 10 i 1 leave-in spray`en fra Sunsilk er derfor helt genial ha med seg p tur. 2-4 splashes i vtt hr fr jeg fner er nok til holde hret mykt og varmebeskyttet uten at det blir tungt og fett. Et godt tips bde til hverdags og ferie, med andre ord. 

O for One&Only Cape Town

Som den hotellentusiasten jeg er har jeg laget meg en liste over alle hotellene jeg har lyst til teste ut mens jeg bor her i Cape Town. Her om dagen tok jeg derfor turen ned til Waterfront for spise lunsj og sjekke ut hotellet One&Only. Navnet i seg selv sier vel i grunnen nok - dette stedet her var faktisk helt rtt!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Til vre s sentralt nede ved Waterfront var det overraskende harmonisk atmosfre der. Hotellet var tydelig bygget p en lur mte som stengte alt av forstyrrelser og sty ute. Bassengomrdet var superfint og alle de ansatte var veldig hyggelige og hjelpsomme, s dette er et veldig godt valg hvis du tenker legge turen til Cape Town! 

// As you may know, I`m a true sucker for beautiful hotels. Thats why I have made a looong list of hotels I want to visit while I`m living in Cape Town. The first one up was One&Only Hotel Cape Town, and let me tell you - this hotel was so awesome! Fantastic athmosphere, supernice poolarea and friendly staff who treated me the best way. I can truly recomend this hotel if you`re traveling to Cape Town any soon. I loooved it there!

Ca en times kjretur unna Cape Town, nrmere bestemt i Cape Winelands, ligger De Kleijne Bos Country House blant vingrder og fantastisk natur. Vi valgte tilbringe helgen her for feire 7-rsdagen vr og ble s absolutt ikke skuffet!

For tiden er det denne serien fra Bjrn Axn som str verst p favorittlisten. Farging, sol og sommervarme merkes p hret og denne serien har derfor vrt redningen min i lang tid. Jeg lrte mange lure triks under eventen med dem i vr og har vel egentlig vrt frelst siden. Visste du for eksempel at man br bruke balsam i hele hret? Det kan ta litt tid fr hodebunnen minsker talgproduksjonen, men nr det skjer er faktisk balsam i hodebunnen det beste trikset for unng fett hr.
