Surround yourself with a color pallete that makes you feel happy πŸƒπŸŒΏπŸŒ΅ #sandqvist #sandqvistbags

I woke up with my feet sticking out from the blanket & immediately got the urge to head out for a nature walk. Tip: buy socks that inspired you. Here I come! πŸŒΏπŸ‘β˜‰β„

Underneath my clothes I have fragile skin. Skin that burns, bleeds easily, itches tremendously, bruise fast, and thats vulnerable to bad lifestyle choices, depression, anxiety, stress, alcohol, smoke and inflammatory foods. My Psoriasis knocks on my mind-door reminding me that I'm human and fragile. Growing up with this in mind, I never thought much of my body or its strength. I never saw any beauty in my skin, arms, legs, breasts or ass, cause every part of my body had red and white bloody scales on them. I hid this from the outside world and dug all my discomfort and sadness inside. In a world where plastic surgery is the answer to every minor flaw we seem to have, there's no quick fix for a flawed skin. The only choice is to deal with it, learn from your weakness, your low points & your self-doubt and grow. I wanted to live my life in an upward trajectory filled with possibilities. So whenever I get the chance to prove to myself that I'm stronger than I think I am & jump outside my comfort zone, I take it. It triggers me. It gives me self-confidence and it doesn't matter how well I do as long as I try. I found out Psoriasis affects my organs from healing fast & that too much abdominal fat is bad for me. I also found out that exercising is key for me. So I have no choice than to be active! What a gift! I was rid off my Psoriasis for a whole year. What a blessing for my skin to recuperate from medicine, needles and strong cortisone creams! But now it's back and spreading fast. So if you see me with stained or bloody sweaters like in this picture it's from cremes and from skin that don't heal fast when bleeding. Do I love my body now? Fucking yes. My body is my friggin temple. Learn to love your flaws. It's more inside your head than you think ❀☺ #psoriasis

We thought spring had reached Stockholm but we woke up with a snow-covered city. Magic! πŸ’§β„β˜ƒ

Let's rewind till yesterday morning 🍊🌳

I should be sleeping but I'm stuck looking through videos of Donna from my recent Estonia trip. Thing is. I've always been scared of big dogs but after 7 years of visiting Estonia and this dog I can finally call myself a dog lover. I actually miss her.

How far will it go?πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Unfiltered sky from the porch of my friends house 😍

The second time I've ever walked on ice. It just feels powerful somehow.

We went to see if we could go fishing. Turned out no. So we went on the ice instead.
