The Importance of Sunscreen

Image
Hello! It is a new day and we have all survived. Yeah, we are alive and healthy - that is always something to celebrate!

You know what today I thought that I would teach you all about something health related. That thing is the importance of sunscreen. To get the spf protection that it says on the bottle you actually have to use about 50ml (that's for your whole body). That's quite a lot and also remember to re-apply every few hours for your skin to be protected all through out the day. Even it says on the bottle that it's water ressistant.



Below I have listed a few of the very dangerous things that can happen if you don't put on sunscreen.
1. You could get skin cancer.
2. It will cause your skin to age faster and you will get wrinkles.
3. You can get broken blood vessles.

I hope that the next time your are in the sun you consider, no I hope that you will actually wear sunscreen. You know what, you should actually wear sunscreen all year round. Maybe on cloudy days you…

Hello! So I don't know or I don't even remember for that matter actually but around Christmas and New Years I did a couple of photoshoots. Yeah, and what I don't remember is if I have showed you guys those pictures. All of the pictures from both photoshoots. Maybe I have, maybe I haven't.

Anyways, wether I have or haven't I thought that I would show you guys the pictures. Today I will show you guys the pictures from the photoshoot that I did with Joakim Oscarsson.

It Is Live

Image
Hello my darlings! It is live, my "About Me" page! Yeah, finally. You can check it out here! And please sure do. I am really excited about that and I think that I wrote a really good explanation about Erika's World. I mean in a sense I really don't need an "About Me" page for this blog because the whole blog is all an "About Me" page.

But please do go and visit my new page and comment what you think!

Smooth Like A Smoothie

Image
Yo! yeah that's right you get a second post today! I thought that you all deserved that. You're good to me so I am going to be good to you. It might not be a huge post with a bunch of research. It's just personal preference on how you make the perfect most delicious smoothie.

What you need is (for one glass): 1 banana, 2,5 dl/ 1 cup of full-fat yoghurt and fruit or berries of your choice. Mix in a blender until smooth. Pour in a glass and drink that delicious drink that you just made for yourself!


A banana is a must! 1 - the texture will be a little extra thick and 2 - it will add natural sweetness so you won't have to add any sugar or other sweetener. What kind of fruits or berries will you add? Comment below! (Psst! My favorite combo is to add either blueberries, raspberry or pineapple and mango).

BTW, do you know that smoothies and juices are actually a really good way for you to get the nutrion that you need from fruit? If you don't like eating fruit or vegetab…

The Perfect V Launch Party In Stockholm

Hello! I thought that I would share some pictures from the launch party for The Perfect V that I went to last Wednesday. I had a ton of fun and met some amazing people. The photos are taken by Patrik Johansson and credit for the event goes to Fancy Alexandersson. Check out all of the fun that we had!

Vegetarian Fat Sources

Oh hello! How are you? I am good. Just sitting in bed and watching The Hangover. A girl got to do something at night, right? Hahaha. Nah, I just like to have something to entertain myself with while I am writing. Okay, I do enjoy just watching movies and not blogging at the same time because you some times miss important things. Good thing that I have seen this movie before than. But I don't want to miss the hilarious jokes.

So I went to the doctors and did a big health screening. They took a lot of blood, I had to do this breathing test and they listened to my heart. All of my vitals and the other test came back awesome. So I am just as healthy as they can be. The only thing the doctor said if she had to comment on something was maybe I should eat more fat. That got me thinking that didn't know what I could eat. What are some good vegetarian fats? So to educate both you and myself I thought that I would look it up.

I found some great vegetarian fat sources and 10 delicious

All Day Every Day

Image
Hello my darlings! Today I am here on time, well not as late as last night anyway. Sorry about that. I actually had a period a few years ago where I blogged at the end of the day and always posted something around midnight. My reasoning for that was that I couldn't blog at lets say 6 PM because the day was not over yet and cool stuff could still happen and I would want that on my blog. Yeah, I could just have included that the next day but back then I didn't see it as black and white as that.


Since I have been really bad at posting workout tips lately that is exactly what you are getting to day. This post is going to be about how much exercise/ physical activity you need every day (yeah that's right E-V-E-R-Y-D-A-Y). But also how much you should workout because there is a difference between exercise and workout. Maybe we should clear that up before we go any further here.

I found a really good quote on a website called Stack Exchange that explains exercise vs. workout: &qu…

No Soy

OMG, it's so so so so late! I mean I can't believe that I haven't posted anything yet. Just been busy and I am still tired from the all the things that has been going on this week. But that doesn't mean that I don't have a post for you guys. I always have a post for you (except for the two days that I was absent this week, sorry again).

Okay but since it's late its going to be a short post. A short post about soy. Yeah that's right. That magic little thing that taste so delicious and have a lot of benefits. With all that praise it can actually be hard to believe it when you hear it but soy is not as good as you think! Yeah, first I say it has a lot of health benefits and then I say it's not as healthy as you think. It's very contradicting.

Why is not as good as we think? Well, first soy contains phytoestrogens which is very similar to the bodys natural estrogen hormone. This can cause serious problems for both men and women. For men this means that …

The Perfect V

Hello my friends! You know what guys, yes you are my friends and always will be. For that I am actually sorry for not having been here for the past two days. Just life and other things have gotten in the way. But I am here now to tell you all about what I have been up to.

I have actually been up to too much these past few days considering that I am hurt my foot. I don't know what I have done, all I know that it has been hurting for almost a week. I wanted to go to the pharmacy today and buy some cooling cream my foot but since it's Midsummer so everything closed early. Good thing that I looked it up online before I actually went there.

Okay so what I have been up to except from screwing up my foot? Well the other day I actually went to an event for a new beauty product. Not just any beauty product, this beauty product is for your bikini area. Whaaat?! That was my first reaction as well but I have tried it and it's actually really good. The brand is called The Perfect V. …

My Workout Schedule

Hello! I workout every single day. I workout a little over an hour. I would never workout less than that. I mean this works well for me. The only time I would sweat it out for only 40 minutes if I would take an hour of lunch and work out during the time instead of eating. But no, I like it this way.

As I have said before I only work out at home in my living room. I follow videos on youtube. There are all kinds of workout videos on youtube. I am sure that you you want to try it you will find something that suites you.

My workout schedule is quite simple. I do yoga Monday through Wednesday and cardio (that focuses on the butt and thighs) Thursday through Sunday. It is not more complicated than that. But, I also do the plank everyday. the plank is good for overall body strength. I eight minutes of the plank everyday. Two minutes, rest for a few seconds and repeat four times. Try that everyday and you will notice significant changes.

Have a nice Tuesday night!

ANTI-WHAT-XIDANTS

I have been on the phone all day. Feel like I can't get anything done because I am on the phone all of the time. I mean I can't concentrate and write a post for you guys and be at the phone at the same time. This may sound like I am bad at multitasking but that is not at all true. It's just when I write a post I have to fact check what I am writing about. I am writing a post and simultaneously doing research at the same time. So you see.

Enough about that. Today I want to talk to you guys about antioxidants. I think that we all know that they're important. Why are they important? Why do we need them and most importantly, how and where can we get them?

Lets just first start with what antioxidants are and why we need them. An antioxidant is a molecule that prohibits the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that produce free radicals. This can then result in reactions that may harm cells. An antioxidant will prevent this from happening.

So where …

Cardio Is Good For Your Memory

Cardio exercises may be more important than you think. Young people who do cardio workouts may maintain their memory skills when they're 43-55. A study done back in April 2014 showed that people at an average age of 25 who under went treadmill tests and then 20 years later underwent the same tests and had small decreases were more likely to perform better on executive functions tests than those with big decreases. This is very interesting. Those tests helped to identify and consequently prevent or treat people with a higher risk of developing dementia.

Yes, taking care of your body at a young age will benefit you when you are older. You will even notice immediate results. So do yourself a favor exercise and eat healthy. Of course exercise is not a magic trick or a miracle worker for disease prevention but it will get you on a good path to never encountering the big and scary ones.

Get To Know Erika

Image
I can't believe that it's 3:30 PM already?! What have I done today? It feels like I have done nothing. But if i have to explain it to someone I actually have done a lot. Maybe not a lot but I have done something. I have worked out and done some laundry. Nothing major, but at least I haven't just been sitting around on my ass doing nothing all day.

I hope you have noticed that I have added a new page to the website. I think that it was about a month ago. It's a page with all my contact info and my @ on social media sites. Check out the page! I am going to add another page that is kind of like a short bio page about me. A little bit who I am. In the mean time until that page gets added I thought that I would do the 10 Question Game with you.

1. What is your middle name? Isabell.

2. What is your favorite color? This is a tough one. I guess I don't have a favorite. I love all colors but if you go through my closet you will mostly see black.


3. Who was your first best f…

My Favorite Meal of The Day

Image
You know what, breakfast is actually my favorite meal of the day! Yes I love breakfast! When I go to sleep at night I am so excited to wake up in the morning because I get to eat breakfast. When it comes to breakfast I am a person of habit so I eat the same thing every single day. Organic yoghurt with my homemade granola and sliced fruit (mostly banana). If I am feeling crazy I might have some organic honey or golden syrup.

My breakfast this morning. Organic yoghurt with a lot of my homemade granola, some berries and some golden syrup.
I am actually shocked when people say that they don't eat breakfast! Breakfast is an important meal. Having breakfast will give you the energy that you need to start the day and through out the day. You know that you should actually have a bigger meal in the beginning of the day rather than at night. Why? Because if you have a big meal in the morning you have all day to burn those calories. If you have a big meal at night you're not going to burn…
