My online portfolio
I’ve been working on and off on my portfolio for the past couple of months and it’s nearly complete. Please check it out, I’m rather proud of it.
New blog: FuckTheRadio.net
Hey, just thought I’d let you know that I’ve launched a new blog called Fuck the Radio, where I post alternative and indie tracks, music videos, tv, movies, books and fashion. This has been a project that I’ve planned for some time now and if you get a chance, please do check it out :)
Working on my second project since beginning my life as a multimedia design student. The assignment said to create a website about shampoo targeting businesswomen. You’re looking at a nearly finished product.
Mockup Design: Red Wine
Recently started studying multimedia design and one of the assignments entailed creating a very simple mockup design based on the 12-column grid for a fictitious company. I love red wine, so that’s what I went with. I’m particularly proud of the wine in the glass, as the image I used didn’t have wine in it, so I had to create some in Photoshop. While not completely realistic (liquid is difficult to recreate) I think I did pretty well.
Way To Go, Me!
A lot has changed in my life since I last updated this blog on a regular basis. One of the things I’m really excited about is the fact that I’ve introduced quite a few healthy activities. This had me wanting to do a list of what I’ve chosen to do to try and stay healthy every day. Some of the items on the list are not new per se, but I don’t believe I’ve talked a lot about them here. So here it is, in reverse order counting down to my favorite healthy activity/food/drink:
10) Fish oil
I currently don’t take fish oil, but I do from time to time. Not much to say here other than it’s important to get your Omega-3 fatty acids, but I’ve recently been told that it’s not that important unless you’re sick. It can be quite expensive, so I tend to only take it when I have the money for it.
9) Vegatables & fruit
Some think that eating vegetables can be a chore, but I don’t think so. It just depends on what vegetables you eat and how you prepare them.
I love fruit and particular the more healthy ones like blueberries, avocados and Brazilian nuts.
8) Smoothies and other healthy drinks
If I’m in the mood for smoothies I love me some Innocent and for tonics Firefly is the way to go.
I’m not doing Pilates these days, but I plan to start doing it again. It feels like a mental shower. Like rebooting your system.
6) Red wine
There’s nothing like a glass of red wine (preferably organic) at the end of a long day, or any day for that matter. I probably drink 5 glasses per week.
- My dinner tonight: smoked salmon on top of rye bread, mushrooms, spinach leaves, bell pepper (red, my favorite and also the healthiest), Brazillian nuts and peanuts. Simple. Easy. Fresh ingredients. Just the way I like it.
5) Raw ginger
Recently started eating raw ginger every day and I love it. I used to only drink ginger tea, but it feels better simply eating it raw. It’s brilliant for pain relief and digestion. While it can be quite hot, I really enjoy it.
I’ve been running seriously (2-4 times on average per week) for more than a year and I couldn’t be without it.
3) Green/white/yellow/oolong/pu-erh tea
A long time ago I only drank black tea once in a while, but ever since discovering such teas as green dragonwell, white silver needle, various yellow teas as well as silk/milk oolong (my favorite taste-wise) and pu-erh, which is an acquired taste I must admit, my life hasn’t been the same. I know nothing better than to relax with a nice cup of tea.
I’m cheating here. Matcha is actually green tea, but personally I think it’s in a league of its own. Matcha is made of the entire leaf and provides much more mental stamina and is rich in anti-oxidants. It’s also a good substitute for coffee.
1) Yerba maté
Yerba maté is a drink from South America that some classify as tea, but it actually comes from another plant called Ilex paraguariensis and not Camellia sinensis like tea. I love everything about yerba maté. Well, almost everything. The taste can be quite… earthy depending on the brand and if it’s “sin palos” or “con palos” (without stems/with stems) or flavored with lemon or mint, etc., but I absolutely love the feeling I get from drinking it. Maté contains three xanthines: caffeine, theobromine (”food of the gods”) and theophylline, which makes this drink a brilliant energizer for both your mind and body. It’s everything you love about coffee, but without the negative stuff. I drink it every morning, afternoon and sometimes also in the evening and it’s fantastic. It gives you such an amazing balanced energy. You’ll feel more focused and at ease and I also hear it’s excellent before psychical activities. It’s like tea, but even better for you! I’ve tried the following brands so far: Cruz de Malta, Pajarito, Taragüí and Canarias and love them all in different ways. #1 for sure!
