1: Sleep Mask for the beauty sleep…
2: Earphones are needed when travelling.
3: A magazine for entertainment
4: I always bring my computer with me whenever I’m travelling- A laptop with ample memory loaded up with downloaded movies or TV shows will always be a must for me!
5: I will never get rid of my addiction to candy, especially not when it comes to watching a movie..
6: Feeling comfortable on an airplane is probably the most important thing for me when I’m travelling- nothing feels better for me than wearing a pair of cashmere trousers- definitely my best tip for going through a long flight, to wear something comfortable.
7: To avoid the issues of getting dry and cracked lips, I always bring my Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream, which is the best nourishing lip balm ever made- I’ve actually been using this product ever since I was a little girl:-)
8+9 for the Flyaway Hair: I’ve always had a problem with static electricity in my hair on the plane, so when travelling I alwayss bring my Tiny Hairbrush from Bodyshop with me in my handbag as well as some hair elastics for the ponytail 😉
10: For the neck & the beauty sleep
11: For a fresh breath (if you don’t brush your teeth in the airplane)
12: Coloring books for the focus and the anti-stress
13: While waiting for the airline-food
Stay sponsored by Ystad Saltsjöbad
As I mentioned before I got the opportunity to stay at the most beautiful hotel in Sweden, Ystad Saltsjöbad, and the opportunity to take a guest with me. My mother’s birthday was coming up and I had yet to find the perfect gift for her, so the timing could not have been better.
Even though this stay was sponsored, I do have to say that it is definitely a place I would have booked either way. Last year my boyfriend and I had booked a spa-weekend, which unfortunately got canceled, so my mother and I were very excited.
We drove from home at about 8 am yesterday, which meant that we had arrived at the hotel at around 10 am. As you can see on the photo, we got a few refreshments when we arrived, as our room was yet to be ready.
This gem of a hotel offered peaceful surroundings with the most amazing ambiance, such a joy.
Unfortunately I wasn’t hungry enough to fully enjoy the breakfast at Ystad, but it was SO delicious, I could have easily spent five trips refilling my plate. I like to balance out my meals, so even though waffles might not be the most healthy thing, I try to supply it with some fresh fruit of the season along with some greek yoghurt rich on proteins.

As the room couldn’t get more amazing, we discovered that we had a terrace facing out to the beautiful pool area.
My mother was extremely happy with her gift, as you can see we made sure to fully explore the amazing venues at Ystad.
The people at Ystad Saltsjöbad were so generous that my mother and I could enjoy a suite doing our stay, and I completely feel in love with the cosiness of the bedroom.
After a “hard” day of relaxation, spa treatments and a little workout this amazing vegan meal replenished all of the spent energy. It is really hard to boil down my favourite meals into one group of foods, as I can enjoy both the meat & potato kind of meals and also the healthier, less carb-based meals.
All in all I am really happy with how our stay turned out, I can definitely recommend this hotel to everyone looking for a mother-daughter or a couples-trip.
Thanks Ystad Saltsjöbad
I dag overraskede Søren mig med flybilletter+booket hotel på Epsilon Hotel på Rhodos, som vi rejser til i slutningen af August. Udover det rejser jeg som sagt til Mallorca med ham i starten af juli og derefter til Californiens forskellige byer med min familie fra juli til august- derefter passer det perfekt med at vi ikke har set hinanden i et stykke tid mens jeg er væk så vi ikke når at blive heeelt træt af hinanden 😉
Jeg tænker på at lave en Vlog mens jeg er dernede, hvis der var interesse for det?
