A little Haul – My protein

I love buying new workout clothes. Clothes that I feel comfortable to train in.

Therefore I took advantages of My protein back to school sale where I got 38% off. I love a good sale ūüôā

The pro Tech reversible Bomber – Dark blue
The white marble leggings
The Inspire seamless leggings – Sulphur leggings

My opinion about the three items:
All of them are in the size Medium

  • The pro Tech reversible Bomber – Dark blue
    Love this jacket feels quite thick, definitely a jacket for the colder months.
    It can be reversible, so you have more shiny puffy side and on the other side you get a more matte side. It has pockets on both side.
  • The white marble leggings
    Love the print on these. Feels like they are double layered so it not so sheer. There is a part right before the elastic, where it is sheer, but other than that they are squat proof. If you are Medium sometimes large I would definitely size up, I didn’t size up and i regret it a bit, because they are kind of hard to put on. luckily they are stretchy, but I don’t like spending 2 minutes to put them on. And if you are a size small, sometimes a medium, I would take the medium.
    The fabric is more silky than a cotton feel. kind of like a swimsuit. they feel very comfortable
  • The Inspire seamless leggings – Sulphur leggings in grey
    I bought these because they remind me of the gymshark leggings(I don’t know the name of them)
    I have these leggings in blue, I believe hey have the same design, but I am not sure.
    These leggings I got in a size Medium, the blue one I also have is in small.
    I would say that these grey ones are less stretchy that the blue ones.
    And I would not use them for a leg day, because they are see through. I have only tried them with a thong. There is a bit of fabric where there are small holes and you can definitely see the underwear through.

Have you bought anything from my protein and if so how do you like the clothes.

I feel like they always have a sale going on, so that is a plus.
And they have a lot of of clothes to choose from.

Use the link below to get 20% off your first order. this will give me 100kr
If you buy for over 399kr you get 20% off on your order
Anyone who have bought on my protein can get this unique code/link and refer anybody.
I just want to help you get cheaper gym clothes.
I am not sure how this link will work outside of Denmark.

Testing Garnier Bio skincare

I love skincare, I really try to take care of my skin, because my skin gets very dry.
I really deal with a lot of acne when it is summer, because I sweat more, and if I don’t clean my skin it will get worse. So it is important to take of it. in the summer i get acne and in the winter it gets dry and patchy.


Sometimes I have to be really careful of the skincare I choose, because my skin will instantly react to it. I have a very weird skin.

When I saw this collection I new I had to get it. the design is so pretty, and it smells so good.
Some of the scents is maybe for someone who is a bit older, but I would still use it, and I’m 23 years old. So If you like the scents, then you go girl! ūüėÄ

I have bought 4 of their products:


– Bio lemongrass Gel wash
This is so moisturizing, and it can take some of your makeup off, that’s what I have used it for anyway. I also use it after my workout when I have been sweating a lot . And you only need like 1 1/2 pump.


– Bio Lavender day care cream
I love the smell of lavender, but maybe someone can feel like it is a bit overwhelming. this is again really moisturizing. I use this before i put makeup on.


– Bio Cornflower micellar water
This just remove ekstra makeup and dirt from your skin, it feels really good on my skin. I don’t feel like it is drying on my skin.


– Bio argan rescue Balm
This is a bit thicker than a day cream, but I just wouldn’t call it a balm. A balm for me is more oily and thicker. A balm for me is more like the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream. And I use this at night so it really can soak in to the skin when I sleep peacefully. But for me it is a thick day cream.

Have you tried the new line?
I really want to get my hands on the other products in the line. i really think this is my favorite line from them.

Sourcedbox May 2018

Another Sourcedbox has arrived at my doorstep. Sometimes I want to try new snacks, but this month I was hesitant on a lot of the snacks, even though they taste really good. I was pleasantly surprised. I just think I am scared it is going to taste bad.

Cacao orange and tumeric clusters – superfoodio
Rich with cacao and orange with a golden twist of tumeric.

A great twist on a classic american combo.

Raspberry burch water – Tapped
sweet and refreshing drink

Moist mixed berry bar – Get fruity
