I’m totally overjoyed! I got new shoes and they are just not any shoes. These are Adidas Ultra Boost, the newest model! I think they are so nice but I also paid 180€ (almost 1350 DKK) for such a pair (Yes, I could have bought them cheaper online but when it comes to shoes, I would rather not do it as I am very uncertain due to the different sho sizes). Ouch normally I would never pay that much money for everyday shoes. But these are not just any shoes. They are the most comfortable ultrasoft shoes I have ever tried. When I tried them in the shop, my first thought was “God, it’s like walking on soft pillows”. But they are not only soft. They can withstand wear and tear. The shoes are made produced with a special technology- The white part (bottom of the shoe) is so compressed that the attenuation does not disappear and Adidas Ultra Boost also has another wild effect. The shoe bottom is made by Continental which produces tires. Yes, it sounds mysterious. But the shoe bottom will take much longer to wear and tear out.
My boyfriend and I went Saturday to find a new pair of everyday shoes for me. Since I have lived with Achilles tendonitis (inflammation) for nearly a year, I need some comfortable shoes. My old Nike Air was sadly worn out after a year. So I use them in the gym now. The struggle to find a pair of shoes was long and I had already six months ago tried the Adidas Ultra Boost, and I was almost sold. But thy were too expensive. This time I was convinced that I would rather pay more for quality footwear to spare my Achilles tendonitis. And the funny thngs is that I did not have a bad conscience with the purchase. I’ve only been satisfied with them and I can no longer wear other shoes. I am hooked 😀
I received some time ago a little package with when I was on a visit in Denmark. In the package there was a set of some elegant gold coated earrings. Weee, I was extra pleased when I saw there were locks. There are certainly others with long hair who can relate to that the earrings suddenly get torn out from being stuck in your hair. But enough about that. Eaarings in this design usually cost a good amount of money. But the (danish) company Lovia.dk sells cheap jewelry at an affordable price. As a student I can sometimes be fairly stingy when it comes to buying jewelry etc. I buy them anywhere as cheap as possible but where they still look good.
If I look like someone who just woke up, I am sorry. I always look like this as I do not wear make-up that often :)
I finished my last examen of my studies tuesday. The day ended with a lovely evening with my friends where where we were at Hansens Brauerei and afterwards bowling. The days wednesday to saturday I was at my family in Denmark. I just wanted to relax a bit after the examen period. Yesterday I arrived in Hamburg and now I’m sitting here. The next 2 weeks wlill mostly be playing with around with the blog, training and see what else happens in Hamburg (hehe, inclusive many nature pictures). Other wise I will be spending time with my boyfriend.
Normally I don’t write about these things as a new opening and so on. But I guess a lot (especially danes) would love to know that the famous irish chain Primark will open in Hamburg in 2017. it will be placed on the east side of Hamburg in Billstedt. You can read more about it here (sorry, it’s only in German) 🙂
I don’t know why, but I somehow hate to use the phrase New Year’s Resolution. I have last year tried to be healthy, but failed due to an injury that made me unable to do any sport. Oh well, life goes on and I’m back on track. We’re in the year 2016, and people do these so called “New Year’s Resolutions”… Well, I even had and still have a goal. I will not define it as a resolution. Reason why? When you mention resolutions to other people, most would say that you won’t even last a month etc. Before I got the injury I managed to get fit, stronger and healthier and I really wanna go back there again. Therefore my goal for 2016 will be to build my musclemass again. I’ve already started in the gym again (yaay 🙂 ), and I’m so motivated as anyone can be. Therefore will the focus on the blog again include health.
I’m indirectly still here! Even though I haven’t notified anybody, I’ve had a little break from my blogs (including traeningsblog.dk), since I have started at the university(s). The motivation to write has always been there, but was never bothered, as the unidays often took the energy from me. I even ended up neglecting my health, sport, the blogs and other things I normally thought of. This time, I will not come with promises regarding an active blog again. This time, I will just say that there will be posts once again. But how often? I can’t tell.
Monday I was at the Christmas Market together with several friends from the study. We took a look around and there were some small shops serving Glühwein (svarer lidt til Glögg), Crepes and much more. I guess the atmosphere would be nice, if it was a weekend. The Flensburg Christmas Market was quite dead but we were also there on a monday evening. It was wet and cold, but hey so is it. I think I will be going there again, but next time will be in the weekend, as there will be much more activies.
After several considerations regarding the blog (also because of the long writing break), I’ve decided to write in both Danish and English. I’ll give it a try and see how it goes. I know a lot of people who do not know Danish at all. So I would rather do it in both languages. So from now on you’ll see the English as the first part, and Danish as the second. So all my updates will be mostly about the study time in Flensburg.
No, you can now use the translation buttons! I have translated and seperated the posts by language 🙂
I haven’t updated the blog for almost 25 days. I apologize for that. I’ve had a very hectic months due to the start of studies. I didn’t have any Wi-fi from the 1st of September to the 14th of September. I started in Flensburg at the University but I also study in Sønderborg. I find it very cool. I’ll tell more about later.
Right now am I changing the design (again) on the blog before I start with anything. From there I will about some of the things which have happened in September. And then will the blog start up again, slowly 🙂
Today I saw an article on the danish news site BT regarding a 19 year old swedish girl. She has been told by the fashion industry that she it too thick. At the moment do I look at myself. I look like an Orangutan compared to her. She has made a video that I think you should see. She also says in the video that the fashion industry says her butt is too big and the hips too wide. When you consider her underweight due to BMI at 17,5 then she’s still too fat. But here comes the discussion. Is she too think or too thin? With my eyes I would say that she is perfect as she is as I don’t want want to be the judgemental here. There are people who are relatively thin from the side of nature. But somehow I think that the fashion industry is taking overhand when it comes to body ideals. They seriously have to stop. She is only 19 years and gets told that she’s too thick. The need to get themselves together.
