Susan Schneider, the wife of Robin Williams, own words:

“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope that the focus will not be on Robin’s death but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”

Have a great day!

djurgMorgonen inleddes med ännu en tidig powerwalk tillsammans med min väninna Micci. Så härligt att inleda mornar på det här sättet. Nästa steg är lite löpträning, men kräver att vädret blir lite mindre kvavt och varmt.

Vill passa på att önska er härliga bloggy vänner en underbar onsdag!

Lääängtar till havet, landet och båttur i det här vädret! Men jobbet kallar..

A romantic proposal – that became a viral success too

A friend posted this video ‘Brad and Emily Get Engaged’, on FB, where Bradley Jansen completely surprises the love of his life, and wife-to-be, Emily with a romantic engagement and proposal.

“Brad and Emily Get Engaged” is a YouTube video that makes you smile, sing, dance and even tear up. The video went viral and has had 2,6 million views so far.

The video, shot at Tunnel Park, shows Bradley Jansen as he popped the question to the love of his life in an intimate sunset moment beside the rolling waves of Lake Michigan but before the actual proposal on the beach, Bradley has gathered 50-60 of their mutual friends and family members who perform their favourite song…

Watch the video. It really is very cute. And if you are a hopeless romantic, like me, you’ ll enjoy, sit with a goofy smile on your face,  shed a few tears and be in a romantic blurr for a few minutes ;)

Vanity Fair shows off Natalia Vodianova on cover

VF

 

New issue of one of my favorite magazines Vanity Fair shows off supermodel Natalia Vodianova p Mario Testino.

vf 

- Natalia Vodianova’s grim Soviet childhood is fashion-world legend by now—if hard to square with the supermodel’s gilded present. Divorced from English aristocrat Justin Portman and living with LVMH scion Antoine Arnault in an elegant Paris apartment, the 32-year-old mother of four might have tried to forget her hardscrabble beginnings in Nizhny Novgorod. Instead, as Ingrid Sischy discovers, Vodianova’s past is a source of strength, passion, and purpose.

Natalia does not tell you her story the way an American would,” says Bruce Weber, the photographer. “You don’t get any of that melodrama. With Natalia: it happened, it’s simple, and that’s the way it is. Just like the women in a Chekhov play, she has this extraordinary resilience. She doesn’t let her difficult past stop her.” In fact, the past drives her like a Ferrari on the last lap of the Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Natalia, 32, is the once-you’ve-seen-her-you-never-forget-her blue-eyed Russian model Natalia Vodianova, who electrified fashion runways in London, New York, Milan, and Paris a dozen years ago, when she starred in something like 40 shows that season. Mind you, this was two weeks after she had had her first baby, Lucas, with the Honorable Justin Portman, an English aristocrat, third son of the late Viscount Edward Henry Berkeley Portman. (His family owns a lot of prime real estate in central London.) Since then, like Twiggy, Veruschka, Iman, Linda, the Christies, Naomi, Kate, and Gisele before her, Natalia has reached such iconic status in the fashion world that she has entered the ranks of one-named idols.

Today’s green smoothie with Maca and Rose hip

unnamedI love experimenting with different smoothies, based on greens and berries. I actually enjoy the notion of something being tasty, yummy and also healthy loaded with the nutrients that I need.  For me it’s a lifestyle.

Today I just did a real mix of fruits, berries and greens that I had at home. Blended it all together in my juice blender and it turned out as a tasty smoothie filled with nutrition – great start to new day!

The ingredients I mixed together today are – (note that everything is based on fresh ingredients, nothing frozen):

Pineapple

Smultron grapes

1/2 an orange – the whole orange with skin and everything

Spinach

Broccoli

Chia Seeds

1/2 teaspoon Maca powder - Maca is rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, and E. Also said to boost your energy and your libido.

1 teaspoon Rosehip ‘Nypon‘ powder – has a high content of vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium and iron.

Add water and any juice of preference. I added some Acai/Blueberry super juice from Paulins.
