This week ✗ 14

April 9, 2017

Things I’ve been up to this week:

slurp ramen joint

Slurp Ramen Joint

I stumpled upon Slurp Ramen Joint on Instagram looong before they even opened their restaurant. Then they got amazing reviews, so I had to try it out. Most of Copenhagen apparently thought the same thing, and since it’s a tiny place without table reservations, we had to wait for over an hour to be seated. But oh man, the shoyu ramen was incredible! We also got gyoza and pickled watermelon with tuna as starters. Absolutely worth it! The first ramen in Copenhagen to taste as good as the ones I had in Japan.

10 weeks at the gym

This week marked the tenth week at the gym! Around 3 months ago I decided to start working out. Partly because I wanted to get in shape and become stronger, partly because my boyfriend works out a lot, and motivated to start.
I’ve been aiming at 3 classes a week, which obviously didn’t happen every week, but even with insanely sore muscles, I dragged my ass to the gym. Mostly weights and strength. I can’t exactly see a difference in my body, but I feel it! For example, I started out being able to do 2 pushups in a row and now I can do 10. I also have so much more energy. It feels amazing!

 

Little things

Finished my internship with the highest grade in my exam, and a paid job there. Great that they liked my work and want mw to stay. Now I just have to write my final exam and somehow find time for this job, gym and a social life. That won’t be challenging at all…

Chocolate mousse ⎮ Only 2 ingredients ⎮ vegan

March 19, 2017

aquafaba chocolate mousse vegan

Do you know aquafaba? No right…. I’d never heard of it before until I saw a video on Instagram where the liquid from a can of chickpeas turned into what looked liked egg whites when whisked. What on earth I thought and Googled it. I learned that it’s called aquafaba and can be used as a vegan substitute and can be used for marengs and other goodies. I experimentet and ended up with this lovely chocolate mousse.

Here are 2 reasons why you should try this recipe:

  1. It’s super easy and you probably already have the ingredients in your cupboard
  2. Contains far fewer calories than ‘classic’ chocolate mousse with cream and eggs

Method

5 Tinder Frustrations

February 22, 2016

tinder frustrations

I’m writing this post at 4:47 in the morning. I woke up at four and couldn’t fall back asleep. So I did what most single people would do. I went on Tinder. (If you’ve watched my last video, you might be shaking your head at me, but you should know that I have the willpower of a small child)

If you’ve ever spend an embarrassingly huge amount of time on Tinder, you might be able to recognize some of these frustrations:

  1. Stop taking shirtless mirror-selfies. That makes you look like a complete douche. If you want to let potential matches know you have abs, find another way. It’s not that hard.
  2. What’s up with dudes who’re wearing sunglasses on ALL of their photos? I can’t help but assume that there’s something very wrong with their eyes. And why take that risk? Swipe left.
  3. Receiving a so-called “Super Like”, swiping right to the guy, and never get a message from him. Isn’t that blue star supposed to indicate that he’s extra interested?! WHAT THE FUCK
  4. The profiles with one photo. That has two guys in it. And no description.
  5. This message: Hey cutie, why don’t tell me about yourself?”. NO! It’s your job to ask me about myself.

 

If you’re unable to read the sarcasm, this is letting you know that it’s there.
