After a quick morning shower I enjoy spoiling my skin with a shea butter body cream from French beauty series La Sultane de Saba (DKK 349). I discovered the product when clever Lillian from Copenhagen beauty clinique Take Care massaged my hands with the delicious body cream. It was during a facial, and half asleep I almost croaked, haha – omg, love the smell, what is that?
“That” was a body cream not seen in Denmark before, the beauty clinique discovered it themselves during a business trip to France.
The smell is discreet and luxurious – please make it my new perfume like. The cream is full with a firm consistency, melting in your warm palms. Only a small amount is sufficient to moisturize your body, giving it a great all day shine.
SO summerwise: Love it when my arms and legs look a little shiny and moisturized – yep, all day!
Alright, I’m ready to enjoy my breakfast on the terrace: Chicken and… protein loathed skyr, an Icelandic cultured dairy product, similar to strained yoghurt – this morning with yummie raspberry. And my darling cup of morning coffee – love it.
I’ve lived pretty much the low carb lifestyle for a year now, ever since my body got into the hands of Copenhagen personal trainer Anne Bech – which I’ve written an ebook about, Hjælp – 28 dage med Anne Bech – on how I lost quite a few inches by not eating bread, rice and other hi-carbs.

Ps. After such a pleasant morning I head for the Copenhagen Latin Quarter. Here I am at Next Door Cafe with Rikke, who’ll help me launch a series of new blog courses, starting from September.
