  • Hey loves! I have a bit of a special video for you today. Something that I have never filmed

  • before. A few weeks ago, I asked you on my Instagram what videos you'd like to see next

  • and so many of you said morning routine. So I thought : ' Why not!' But you guys know how I

  • love my DIYs so today I'm not just going to show you my typical weekend morning, but also

  • 10 epic DIY ideas that make my mornings happy and special. Breakfast recipes, DIY decorations,

  • clothes, shoes, makeup, nail art and much more. Check it out!

  • Oh god! What a nightmare! Does it happen to you that during the week when you have to

  • get up, you would give everything for an extra 10 minutes sleep, but on the weekends when

  • you have no pressure to get up you wake up super early? Well it happens to me a lot.

  • And since I am awake, I decided to get up and make the most from this morning and you

  • guys are coming with me. First I head to the bathroom to brush my teeth and wash my face.

  • My skin is super thin, sensitive and rosacea prone. Warm water usually makes me flare up

  • a lot. Although it calms down right after. On top of that my face is very dry so I have

  • to put on some moisturizer. Now it's time for the food! On the weekends I like to work

  • out in the morning so I usually have a proper breakfast after... But I have to eat a little

  • something to give me energy for the workout, so today I'll make myself a smoothie. I just

  • grabbed whatever fruit I have in my fridge and some milk. I've found raspberries, strawberries

  • and a banana. I really love making smoothies because they are literally done in seconds

  • and they taste delicious! And they are also healthy, which is a bonus. While sipping on

  • my smoothie I like to check emails, answer your comments and watch some YouTube videos.

  • Oh and by the way, I actually decorated this jar myself and I think it looks so pretty! Here's

  • how you do it:

  • Pour some glue in a container - I am making three different colors, so I need three glasses.

  • Then simply color your glue using acrylic paint or food coloring. Give it a nice stir

  • and voila! You have a glue paint which you can use to decorate any kind of material.

  • Now you can put the paint into a squeeze tube or a plastic bag and make a knot. This way

  • you'll be able to draw with the paint just like when you're decorating the cake. But

  • seriously, how amazing are these colors. As you may have noticed in my videos : I do have

  • a tiny neon obsession at the moment. Bright colors just make me so happy! Simply cut away

  • a tiny piece of bag's corner and you can start drawing. I decided to make colorful hearts

  • all over this jar. Normally, I use my jar to drink but this can be a beautiful decorating

  • piece too. Use it for pencil holders on your desk, as a vase for flowers, whatever you wish.

  • When you're done just let it dry for a few hours and you have the most beautiful jar

  • ever! Oh and if you want you can just buy these glass paints and create super cool designs

  • on your jars. Here I making a fun landscape picture with a shiny sun, clouds and flowers.

  • These jars are completely safe to wash and will last you many years. Made a pink flower

  • and now let's give her an orange friend so it won't be as lonely. These jars can also

  • work great as a little gift to your loved ones. You can personalize it, make it funny

  • - the options are endless. When drawing on a glass just try to keep your hand steady

  • and move slowly. Resting your elbows on the table helps a lot too!

  • Ok, after I drink up my smoothie it's time to put on my sporty gear! During the workout

  • I like to drink a lot of water and today I decided to make it a bit special so I am going

  • to infuse it with a lot of fresh fruits. Better be careful with that knife Sara! I've got

  • some strawberries, blueberries, kiwi and lemon. In they go in the bottle. I love experimenting

  • with different fruits, sometimes I add raspberries, mint, lime, whatever I find in the fridge.

  • I drink a lot of water, about two to three liters every day and this is a great way to

  • spice it up a bit. To finish off I pour in some fresh water and I am ready to go out.

  • I live in Bergen, where it rains a lot. On such days I like to make some strength exercises

  • inside. But when the weather is fine as today I like to take the advantage of it and go

  • out for a run in the fresh air. Running shoes - check, pony tail - check, windproof jacket

  • - check and I'm off! Taking half an hour in the nature really clears my mind and gives

  • me energy for the day. The fruit-infused water tastes so yummy! Seriously superb, you have

  • to try it! So I like to run for a while until I get distracted by something like taking

  • pictures or this cute little ducky. I play with it for a while and then usually decide:

  • 'Sara you've run enough today!' and I head home.

  • Back home I need to take a quick shower first and then I put on my favorite red robe, which

  • I basically live in. I brush my hair and lately I have been loving the heatless waves, which

  • are very easy to achieve. All you do is separate your hair in two sections and twist each section

  • away from your face to get swirls like these. You can clip them, but I just leave them like

  • this and swirl them whenever I remember. If my plan for the day is to chill in my apartment

  • I normally just stay in my pajamas, not going to lie. But I do have some plans for later

  • so I decided to put on denim shorts and cropped top. I made this cute graphic tee

  • myself and I'm going to quickly show you how.

  • First you have to find or make a picture you want on your shirt and print it to a transfer

  • paper. I decided to go for this adorable elephant in heart with bunch of flowers and colors.

  • Cut the picture out leaving about half an inch edge and just follow the instructions

  • for your transfers, because these can be different for different producers. I had to iron the

  • paper for a while, let it cool completely and then I removed the paper to reveal this

  • gorgeous Mr. Elephante picture on my top. This was actually the first time I made a graphic tee

  • using transfer paper and I loved it. I will definitely make more of these on my shirts.

  • Alright, now it's finally time for my favorite part of the morning, which is a big tasty

  • breakfast! Today I'm having avocado and cream cheese cracker plus, yogurt with granola and

  • berries. You can just buy these seed crackers in the grocery store or you can easily make

  • them yourself. Take a big bowl and pour in sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and pines,

  • whole flax and grounded flax seeds, chia and sesame seeds, some almond slices, psyllium

  • husk and salt. For the precise measurements check the info box. Mix all the ingredients

  • together and pour in 5 deciliters of water. Stir well and put it on a parchment lined

  • baking sheet. Flat the mixture down with a spatula making sure it's nice and even. Mine

  • crackers will be about a quarter of an inch thick. Place them in the oven preheated at

  • around 300 Fahrenheit or 160 degrees Celsius. Bake for 10 minutes, then shape your crackers

  • in the desired pieces and bake for another 50 minutes. Keep checking them though, because

  • you don't want them to get burnt. First tray done, let's cut these guys as well. Here they

  • are, all done and smelling delicious. You can now store your crackers in a box or in a jar

  • and they make for a super healthy and delicious breakfast or a snack.

  • I like topping mine with some cream cheese and sliced avocado. Besides that I am also

  • making myself a berry and granola yogurt. Time to add some delicious blueberries and

  • pour in my favorite granola. Add another layer of yogurt, and top the healthy mix with yummy

  • strawberries. A lot of strawberries.. as much as I can possibly fit in the jar! And finally

  • I can enjoy my breakfast. While eating I like to think about video ideas... or I would just

  • check my social media and answer to you guys. Let me just say... This berry granola is so

  • good! And what I like about it is that you can just make it at home, put the jar lid

  • on and take it with you to school or work. Oh and in case you wondered what kind of granola

  • I usewell I made it myself! Pour in a bowl: 3 cups of oats, half a cup of pumpkin

  • seeds and pistachios, sunflower seeds and almond slices, a tea spoon of salt and some

  • cinnamon. Mix it all together and add half a cup of maple syrup and quarter of a cup

  • of olive oil. Mix well until all the ingredients are nicely incorporated and pour the mixture

  • on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake in the oven at 300 Fahrenheit for about 40 minutes.

  • You can stir it every 20 minutes so that the granola will be nice and evenly baked. I swear

  • you guys, this is hands down the best granola I have ever tried, and on top of this, your

  • house will smell amazing while baking it. You can of course change the ingredients according

  • to your preferences - add hazelnuts, walnuts or even dried fruit. Place it in the air proof

  • box and you have a delicious granola always on hand.

  • After breakfast I wash the dishes and I always wear protective gloves. This is super important

  • if you want to keep your nails and hands healthy and pretty. Detergents are usually very harsh,

  • causing weak, broken nails and premature ageing of the skin.

  • I don't paint my nails every weekend morning, but if I will be filming later that day and

  • I happen not to have anything on my nails yet, I would probably need to. So I just like

  • to chill on my bed, listen to some music and paint my nails. Today I went for this purple

  • shade on all the nails except my ring finger. For that one I applied two coats of white

  • as a base. Next I am dipping a q-tip into nail polish, and making big colorful dots

  • all over the nail. When the dots dry, I like to go in with white and make slightly smaller

  • dots inside the bigger colored ones. Lastly I am making small colored dots in the center

  • of these rings. My mani too just ten minutes to make and it is looking suppa cute.

  • By now my hair is all dry and I am ready to get rid of the funny swirls and get myself

  • some nice beachy waves. For some texture I like to spray on some beach hair spray and

  • scrunch the hair up so that the waves get more pronounced. Oh and if you want to make

  • your own beach hair spray, that's how you do it. Take a spray bottle and fill it half

  • way with water, add about a tea spoon of sea salt, a bit of strong hold gel, some oil – I

  • am using almond oil, but you can also use coconut, olive oil whatever you prefer. If

  • you want you can also add some scent, I added peppermint extract and finally I dripped in

  • some vitamin E drops. We know that packaging counts so I wanted to make my bottle a little

  • bit prettier by sticking on a bunch of colorful hearts. Now that's what we are talking about

  • :) While this hairspray gives your hair a lot of texture it also nourishes your hair

  • with oils and vitamins.

  • I am almost ready for the day. The only thing missing is to apply my makeup. I don't wear

  • makeup everyday, because I'm too lazy for that, but I do use products with a bit more

  • coverage when I film. First is Mrs. foundation which I like to apply with a beauty sponge.

  • Then some concealer in the inner corner of my eyes, which I just apply using my ring

  • finger. For the eyeshadow I apply a medium brown shade in the crease and blend it upwards

  • using a fluffy brush. Then I pop some lighter champagne shade all over the lid. I find that

  • applying with the finger helps a lot with the pigmentation. Dipping my angled brush

  • in dark brown, almost black color and I put it on my lash line as a liner. Curl the lashes,

  • apply some mascara, and sometimes I like to smudge a bit of blue liner on my bottom lash

  • line. This makes blue eyes pop so much more and I love how it looks especially for the

  • summer. Final touch for the eyes is a bit of that same champagne color in the inner

  • corner and below the eyebrows. And talking about them, I usually leave my eyebrows all

  • natural. But I do like to give my cheeks some peachy flush so here's that and lastly I put

  • on my favorite tinted lip balm, which surprise surprise, I made myself.

  • All I did is melt together a piece of old lipstick and some vaseline. My lips are always

  • chapped and I have to apply some sort of lip balm all the time. Also, most of the lipsticks

  • dry my lips out, so this tinted lip balm is perfect for me. Give the balm a little stir

  • and then pour it in a container. I had to decorate mine with a little heart and that's

  • it. Lips are no longer dry and chapped, but soft and rosy instead. Here's my makeup all

  • done, so I just have to put my shoes on and I am ready to conquer the world. But seriously,

  • how cute are these sneakers?! And guess what, you can make them too! Take a piece of denim

  • fabric and a pair of sneakers, that you want to pimp up. I love making such easy DIY projects

  • outside, although the weather here in Norway has been absolutely terrible so far this spring,

  • rain and cold all the way. Cut a bunch of hearts out of the denim fabric. I am not using

  • any stencil, because that's much faster and I really like how the hearts are all a bit

  • different. Of course you can be very creative here and cut out other shapes, like circles

  • and stars. Here are my pretty little jeans hearts that we are now going to stick to the

  • shoes using a fabric glue. Apply some fabric glue and place them all over your sneakers.

  • My hearts are quite big, so the sticking goes very quickly. Here comes the last one and

  • I'm done. How gorgeous are they? Love, love, love!
