I so thrilled to introduce you all to my girlfriend, Sara. She is a famous blogger from Sweden [ fun fact: her mother starred in the Swedish version of Real Housewives ]. She now lives in San Diego & interns at TransWorld Surf, while she works towards her college degree. She has been one of my main workout partners & often takes Pure Barre. Oh!- & she also happens to have amazing style & fab skinny tips! Watch some of her DIY YouTube videos here.
+ Tell us about yourself & your blog.
I am a twenty-one year old girl living in Carlsbad, California. I blog for a Swedish magazine named VeckoRevyn. I focus on taking pictures of my everyday life, including my family, friends, fashion, food, & the beautiful scenery around me.
+ Quick skinny tip?
I always try to eat small meals throughout the day rather than a few large ones. It is important to keep your metabolism going & since it starts in the morning, I always make sure to have breakfast with a big cup of coffee. I find myself eating healthier throughout the day when I start with a nutritious breakfast.

+ Weekly workout schedule?
I love working out! I try to workout as much as possible with a couple days of rest days throughout the week. I practice hot yoga at Core Power Yoga about three or four times a week, I enjoy going to the gym and working with hand weights and exercise balls, & I also love getting my cardio on by running along the beach. If I am feeling really great then I take it to the next level & run on the sand.
+ Favorite healthy go-to meal?
I am definitely a salmon girl. If there is something on the menu at a restaurant that involves salmon and grilled vegetables, I’m in!
+ Cocktail of choice?
My absolute favorite drink is a vodka tonic with lime! Yum :).
+ Motivation to stay in shape?
I work out and eat healthy because it makes me feel so much better about myself. Not just physically, but mentally as well.
+ Favorite beauty product?
My favorite beauty product is my Clarisonic facial cleanser. It is the best thing that I have ever used for washing my face & I have really noticed amazing changes.
+ Natural beauty remedy?
I love getting massages! I seriously do not know what I would do without them. It is the perfect way to relax after a long eventful day.
