Long time no see.. It’s been a long time since my last post but I’ve been very busy with my exams during December and New Years. However, now I’m back!


2016 has been such a great year for me. I have really settled in Denmark and I’m enjoying my time there, close with friends and family again. I also got to travel a lot to Barcelona of course (to see my boyfriend) and to Italy. I really appreciate that I get to travel this often! I love it!


I haven’t set any NY resolutions this year.. I kind of already know in which direction I’d like to go and I’ve been working on it for a while, so I don’t feel that there’s any reason for making it NY resolutions. It’s just goals (; Do you have NY resolutions?? I’d love to hear.
I am starting the year off in Barcelona with Anders. So nice that I can stay here for an entire month before going back to school. We haven’t planned much since Anders is working. We are just enjoying our time together!

Finally I’m back to routines with my workouts! I try to work out a least three times a week and do yoga classes as often as I can. I like to attend yoga classes after my normal work out – first cardio and then core, leg and butt exercises. I used to do a lot of yoga when I was living in Barcelona, and now it feels like I’m finally getting back on track with it. It’s such a nice way to exercise and at the same time get-away from your everyday life. I really recommend doing it – And at least give it 3 times, bc the first time is no fun, hah. How do you like to stay in shape?

This weekend is super busy for me. This morning I had a shoot for a shoe brand (it was my first film shoot, so I’m so excited about it!), tomorrow I have another project with a photographer, and Sunday I’m selling out of my wardrobe at big secondhand market in Denmark. So enough to do for me, when I actually should be making my exam projects for university.. I guess I will wait for next week with that. I can’t wait to show you guys the results from this weekend! Hopefully, I’ll have something on my blog soon. Enjoy your weekend. Xx,

// Jeg er endlige tilbage i min træningsrutine! Jeg forsøger at træne mindst tre gange om ugen og tgae på yoga hold, så ofte jeg kan. Jeg tager typisk et yoga hold efter mit normale træning (først cardio og derefter core, ben og bagdelsøvelser). Jeg plejede at dyrke meget yoga, da jeg boede i Barcelona, og nu føles det som om jeg endelig komme tilbage til den rutine igen. Det er sådan en dejlig måde at træne på og samtidig komme lidt væk fra hverdagens stress. Jeg anbefaler virkelig at prøve yoga – og mindst give det 3 gange, for første gang er ikke sjovt, hah. Hvordan holder du dig i form?

Denne weekend er super travlt for mig. Imorges havde jeg et shoot for et skomærke (det var mit første film shoot, så jeg er ekstremt spændt!), imorgen har jeg et andet projekt med en fotograf, og søndag skal jeg sælge ud af min garderobe til MEGA KUP i Aarhus. Så nok til at se til denne weekend, selv om jeg burde forberede mine eksamener.. Men det må vente til næste uge. Jeg glæder mig til at vise jer resultaterne fra denne weekend! Forhåbentlig kommer der snart noget op her på bloggen. Ha’ en skøn weekend,

 

Sara Kirstine,

So as some of you might know my boyfriend is living in Spain while I’m living in Denmark -meaning long distance relationship… I hear of a lot of people fearing long distance relationships or struggling while being in one so I thought I’d share some tips on how to make it work more smoothly.

  1. Don’t look at it as a problem! It’s pretty simple. If you have a negative attitude it’ll normally to turn out as a bad experience, whereas if you have a positive attitude towards your relationship it is more likely that things will get a positive outcome.
  2. On that note, Focus on the positive! I know it is so easy to say but it really works with everything in life. For me, I’m happy that I have much time to focus on my school and other projects, that I have lots of time to spend with friends and family. I know that if Anders were here in Denmark I would be probably not get my all workouts done, or get to read as much for school as I would prioritize differently.
  3. Keep yourself occupied! Sure there will be times that you miss each other like crazy, and there should be. But if you’re occupied by hanging with friends you’ll focus on that instead. Of course you can’t be occupied always, and there should be time to miss each other as well.
  4. Call each other! It’s always nice to hear the other’s voice. This is not something that Anders & I are the best at. We’re both quite busy doing each our things, and I am actually not a big fan of talking over the phone. But something I really like is to call him at night on speaker phone, just talk for a short time and then fall asleep while he’s still on speaker phone so I can here him puzzle around. I almost feels like he’s there then.
  5. Trust each other! There’s a reason why you’ve chosen to continue your relationship even though you’re physically apart -You want each other. If something were to happen, it could just as well happen while your living in the same place. If you’re easy to become jealous, try to think rationally.
    I’ve been in another long distance relationship that only lasted for about 6 months – but I was younger and way more insecure, and I was sure he would find someone more interesting than me. You really have to trust and believe in yourself as well – believe you are both holding on to this relationship because there is nothing/one else you want. 
  6. Create milestones! Make plans for the next time you will see each other. For me it helps a lot to know exactly how long until I will see Anders again, since then I can plan what to do in between and then time seem to be going quicker. Also I know I have something good coming. That’s the best part about a long distance relationship – You always have something to look forward to! 

I hope this is helpful to you if you’re in a long distance relationship, or if you’re going to be in one. If you have any questions, feel free to comment. With love, 

Sara Kirstine,

 

  1. Se ikke på det som et problem! Det er egentlig ret simpelt- Hvis du har en negative holdning fra start, ender det normalt som en dårlig oplevelse, men hvis du har en positive attitude til distancen, er der større chance for et positivt udfald. 
  2. I forlængelse af ovenstående, fokusér på det positive! Jeg ved det er nemt at sige, men det hjælper virkelig med alt i livet. Jeg er glad for at jeg har tid til at fokusere på min skole og mine andre projekter, at jeg har masser af tid til at være sammen med venner og familie. Hvis Anders var her i DK, ville jeg sikkert ikke få trænet lige så meget, som jeg gerne vil, eller få læst alt det jeg gerne vil til uni, da jeg vil prioritere anderledes. 
  3. Hold dig selv igang! Der vil helt sikkert være tidspunkter, hvor I savner hinanden helt sindssygt, og det burde der også være, men hvis du holder dig selv beskæftiget med venner, veninder, sport og andre aktiviteter, vil dit fokus være der istedet for på dit savn. Selvfølgelig kan du ikke være beskæftiget hele tiden og der skal også være tid til at savne hinanden. 
  4. Ring til hinanden, det er altid dejligt at høre hinandens stemmer. Det er ikke dét, Anders & jeg er bedst til.. Vi har begge gang i hver vores ting, og jeg er egentlig ikke den største fan af at tale i telefon. Men noget jeg virkelig sætter pris på og kan anbefale, er at ringe om aftenen og sætte ham på højtaler, bare snakke i kort tid og så lægge mig til at sove, mens han stadig er på højtalere, så jeg kan høre ham pusle rundt. Det føles næææsten som om han er der. 
  5. Stol på hinanden! Der er en grund til at I har valgt at fortsætte jeres forhold, selvom der er en afstand imellem jer nu. Hvis der skulle være sket noget, der kunne skade jeres forhold, kan det lige så godt ske, mens I bor samme sted. Så hvis du har let til jalousi, så prøv at tænk rationelt.
    Jeg har været i et lang distance forhold før, der kun varede seks måneder. Jeg var yngre og meget usikker på mig selv, så jeg var sikker på at han skulle finde én, der var langt mere interessant end mig. Men man bliver nødt til at tro på sig selv og på at I begge holder fast i dette forhold, fordi der ikke er andet I hellere vil. 
  6. Skab højdepunkter for fremtiden! Lav planer for hvornår I skal ses igen. For me hjælper det meget at vide præcist hvor lang tid der går, inden vi ses igen. Så kan jeg planlægge, hvad jeg skal mens vi ikke er sammen, og så synes tiden bare at gå langt hurtigere. Det er det bedste ved lang distance forhold – Man har altid noget at se frem til! 

Jeg håber, dette kan hjælpe dig, hvis du er i et lang distance forhold, eller du er på vej til et. Hvis du har nogen spørgsmål, er du velkommen til at skrive en kommentar. Knus.

Good morning! Here’s a little recap from my Instagram and the past 18 days in Barcelona. It’s been so great to visit there again, again, again. Haha, I’m so happy that I get to go there so often! When you’re in a long distance relationship, as I am, you really need to focus on the positive, and for me it works being excited about all the traveling and of course seeing Anders again. We been in a long distance relationship for a year and a few months now and luckily in the first year I got to travel to Barcelona for 4 months in total. I feel very lucky that my study program enables me to travel that often. And now that I’m back and really need to focus on my studies. They’re already talking about exams.. It feels like we just started the semester, but time is just passing by so quick! Do you have an autumn break from school/work too??

// Godmorgen! Her er et lille recap fra min Instagram og de sidste 18 dage i Barcelona. Det har været så skønt at være der igen, igen, igen. Haha. Jeg er så glad for, at jeg kan rejse dertil så tit! Når man er i et langdistance forhold, som jeg er, er det virkelig vigtig at fokusere på det positive, og for mig hjælper det at glæde sig over at få lov til at rejse så meget og selvfølgelig at se Anders igen. Vi har boet i hvert sit land i et år og et par måneder nu, og heldigvis kunne jeg inden for det første år være i Barcelona i fire måneder i alt. Jeg har meget heldig med, at jeg har et studie, hvor jeg har mulighed for at være så meget væk.  Nu hvor jeg er tilbage i Aarhus, er det virkelig tid til at fokusere på studiet! De taler allerede om eksamener.. Det føles som om vi først lige er gået igang med semesteret, men tiden går bare så hurtigt! Har I nydt efterårsferien?? 

Xx, Sara Kirstine

So it’s time for me to move agaaaain. Like I’ve said before, it feels like I’m moving around all the time – always travelling, and when I’m finally at home I need to change to another apartment. It’s literally the 10th time I’m moving within 3 years! And I’m only going to be here until July since I’m planning on going to Barcelona to study one semester then. It’s crazy… Maybe I should host some kind of moving-aniversary? Ha! The new apartment has the perfect location thou! It’s such a nice area – with the most charming streets and buildings, and so many good cafés and restaurants. I think it’s going to be very nice here!

// Det er endnu en gang tid for mig til at flytte. Jeg har sagt det før, men det føles som om jeg flytter hele tiden – jeg rejser så ofte, og når jeg endelig er hjemme i DK, skal jeg til at flytte lejlighed. Det er tiende gang jeg flytter inden for de sidste 3 år! Og jeg skal kun være her indtil juli, da jeg vil studere et semester i Barcelona. Det er helt vildt… Måske skulle jeg holde et flytte-jubilæum, haha! Den nye lejlighed ligger helt perfekt, lige nær Jægergårdsgade (hvis nogen kender til Aarhus). Det er så skønt et område, med charmerende gader og bygninger, og så mange gode caféer og restauranter. Jeg tror, jeg får det rigtig godt her! 

With Love, Sara
