I first saw The Virgin Suicides by Sofia Coppola when I was 16 (about 50 times in a row), it blew me away and has been one of my favorite movies ever since. Not least because of the music.

Practice what you preach

I feel like I need to clear something up, because looking back at my blog it gives the impression that I am living a really "super healthy", "super conscious/perfect" lifestyle, and that it not exactly the truth, and I hate it when blogs give this impression and then the one writing it is not clarifying how it actually looks in real life. I wrote these posts because I thought there was a lack of alternative and sustainable brands as well as an overconsumption when I was looking at other blogs. I did it to inspire and motivate myself and others, however just to clarify I do not only eat organic, vegan and I still shop. My last purchase was from Acne, dark grey jeans. I chose that brand because it was familiar, accessible and yeah a cool brand. I chose the easy road, instead of waiting around to order a pair of sustainable ones. And to be honest I am not really feeling guilty about it. I know that from what I put on this blog I should because first of all I should not want to buy new jeans when I already have perfectly functional ones, and this kind of make everything I write bullshit because if I don't live by my "rules" then why bother trying to "inspire" others to do so? Well this is a blog though, not a newspaper so I guess that it doesn't really matter and at least now I am trying to win back a little credibility by telling the truth.
My intensions are to live a meaningful life. To me that means trying to eat organic and vegan, and I am saying trying because that is what I do. I am not succeeding. The only meat I eat is fish, and I rarely eat dairy products but I do sometimes, I don't eat eggs, but there is egg in a lot of products and I don't bother to check actually. And the perfect scenario would be to buy nothing, but I do buy some things. Not overly impulsive or anything and much better then before, but not perfect at all either. I just want to clarify all this so that I don't feel too guilty and full of shit for having a blog that preaches when I don't practice. Hope you can still use some of it for inspiration, I do, but right now I am more concerned about actually living my life then trying to live it a certain way. I'll let the posts be the inspiration, because I personally can't, at the moment.

Hope you still love me;-)

Peace! Xo

Skinny issues

My Tumblr.
The lack of respect for people who are skinny is ridiculous right now! It's always like this when it is fashion week in denmark, (which I'm not attending, I'm in Paris at the moment) but I have to say that I think the line is crossed when someone who has done a collaboration with Danske Modeller (the danish model society) about an ethical charter, which should help models getting better working conditions, is publicly criticizing the official fashion week posters, the model on it and her pose. Where is her respect for this girl, who, from when I have meet her, seems like a normal healthy person, who yes is skinny but when did it get acceptable to bully people for being skinny? I do understand that LMS has to send a message, that they are taking their distance towards the use of skinny girls, but they are already in dialog with the fashion business about it, so going public with a statement, that we have all heard a million times before and it never comes as a surprise, is just pure bullying, from my point of view! I am all in for healthy, but I am also all in for excepting people for who they are! And right now there is a big hate on people who are skinny/thin - what ever you like to call it. I guess it's a love/hate relationship. Like the one I have with my own body. I am happy about my body and as long as I feel strong and healthy I don't care how it looks. But of course I sometimes have the feeling that I am too skinny. As well as I sometimes have the feeling that I am too bloated/not fit enough/want to gain weight. But isn't that totally normal as a person to feel like that? What I don't feel like however is criticizing other peoples body (at least not publicly, what my thoughts sometime pops out I can't take responsibility for). And I don't get the conception that it is ok, and even an empowering statement when someone criticize a person for being too skinny! It's very much an acceptable thing to do because it's now the "right" mentality to think that someone is too skinny. But how are you helping anyone if you send the message that it is ok to criticizes other people publicly on how they look? I do not get this conception at all and I am very much disgusted by it! 

Read the article here. It's in danish though.

This is not a discussion on weather the model used is too skinny or not! I personally think she looks absolutely gorgeous but it is a matter of taste so I can't say if I'm right or wrong. The whole debate on weather or not models are bad role models for other women because they encourage them to loose weight or seems unattainable, is to me not as relevant because if it wasn't acceptable to criticize someone for how they look we would eliminate that problem pretty quickly! 

Love each other people! We are all beautiful! 

Peace! xo

A little x-mas list

The most sustainable wish list contains nothing, but thats not very fun to blog about. So instead I let my imagination run a little and created this list. Something practical, something christmas-y and the usual dream buys. What's on your christmas list?

November low

Photobucket
How are people today? I feel down, very november-y. And I'm not helping it by sitting here alone in the dark listening to indie singer/songwriter music. Had a bad day. But I know that the light will be back again, and everything is going to be ok...

Did you see Karlie's new crop (lower right corner)? I love it!

By the way if you like the pictures I feature in my posts but want them by them self you can find them on my Tumblr (link to your left).

Let's talk about American Apparel. I get there is a really mixed feeling about this brand. What people are most unsatisfied about is the quality, but the things I have are actually holding up pretty good. And I have heard some say that they think the campaigns are distasteful, but from what I have gathered on the top I can't really agree with this. Are they really sustainable? I have to admit I don't know how the fabrics are produced but I guess they give their staff at the factories a decent wage, since they use this as advertisement? All in all, I like this brand, especially their casual wear. I just ordered new yoga pants, a sweatshirt and some unitards, since my ration of gym wear is really small, and I need to expand.

What is your opinion of American Apparel?

By train


Photobucket
Tomorrow I am going to Hamburg for a casting, kind of a long way just for a casting but I don't have any excuses not to go - and it's a free trip. I'm going by train and I kind of love that, I like long train rides. Good occasion to read books. Right now I am reading Siri Hustvedt ("living, thinking, looking"), I really like her books they are so well written. What are you reading at the moment? - Any recommendations?

I've been bitten by a mad yoga-bug

Photobucket
How to practice doing a handstand via Whole living.com. I can't do this (yet - but it is definitely one of my goals).
I was introduced to yoga when I was 15 on boarding school (efterskole), and since then I have been practicing on and off, both by myself, with DVDs and classes but I didn't really practice it consistently. But since moving back home I have been going to classes two times a week and practicing at home most days. It feels super great, and I am completely hooked. So much that yesterday evening, I attended a three hours yoga event at my center. On a friday night. What I like about this form of training as opposed to running (which didn't last me more then a couple of months) or Pilates or regular gym training and classes, is that yoga isn't about "working out", it is a spiritual practice that just happens to have the great side effect of toning your body.

Next year, in January,  I am going back to school (Højskole - it's difficult to explain but it is this kind of school that you can go to for shorter or longer periods of time and you can stay there if you like (which I'm going to), and you pay for it your self (which you rarely do in Denmark) and you can take different courses maybe ones that prep you to apply to other schools.) I'm going for half a year and what I have chosen is Body and Awareness which is yoga, psychology, nutrition etc. and international politics, to give it a twist. And then you can take all different kinds of classes too, like pottery, design, art class, everything creative. I don't know what I am going to do after but I'll get to it. Right now I am just looking forward to January. And my next yoga class;-)
