About Me

I am Eva Sundene from Norway, entrepreneur, trendsetter, writer, lecturer and educator in all aspects of lifestyle, health, beauty, spa, slimming and body shaping.

THE SHAPE UP LIFESTYLE

In the 80’s I founded the first lifestyle magazine in Scandinavia: Shape-Up, and I was chief editor for many years. It was all about nutrition, slimming, fitness – and everything that makes women look and feel good!

SPA QUEEN

When I left the magazine for new challenges in 2000, I established Cosmodermica with my daughter as partner. We became the first company with expertise in Spa concepts in Scandinavia. Our Spa Academy, NHSA, educated hundreds of spa & beauty therapists – the media called me “The Spa Queen of Norway” ….

NEW START

I retired from business in 2010, and wanted freedom from my big house and garden, all the possessions – and get a new lifestyle in the sun. In 2011 I moved to beautiful Fuerteventura in the Canaries, Spain to get more out of life. It was important for me to get a more relaxed lifestyle, more time to pamper myself – and lots more time to enjoy my passion: Writing! Now I focus on writing blogs and books about everything that can keep us young and vibrant. I hope you will follow me….

JUMP INTO THE UNKNOWN

“Everybody” said I was crazy to start at new life at the age of nearly 70. I said why?
I have always been a risk taker, a problem solver and I need new challenges, new experiences, new people to feel really alive. Not just repetitions and routines on the road to old age…

MY WONDERFUL FAMILY

They all supported me, because they really know me best. I think they realized that I could be bored to death staying in Norway –  and I deserved to be free in a climate I love. I have always hated the cold, and by leaving the winter in Norway I get 50% more life out of life each year!

ON THE SUNNY SIDE

Here I am enjoying my outdoor lifestyle all the year round – not feeling imprisoned by cold, ice and freezing temperatures that also tapped my bank account. Now I use the money for living like a Diva and getting pampered with facials, massages and whatever I desire…

LIFE, LAUGHTER, ENERGY

I have come a long way since I moved to my magic Island of Fuerteventura. The climate, the relaxed lifestyle, the positive people, the challenge learning a new language, the fantastic experience of creating a new home, a new garden – a new life. It has been fabulous, it still is – and I enjoy each sunny day here.

In 2021 I will celebrate 80 years on planet Earth! It is totally unreal…. Anyway, tests are showing that my biological age is 20 years less! Actually, I have been really rejuvenated since I moved here.

FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS

I love my new life, and it proves that it is never to late to go for your dreams and follow your heart. Remember, you have only one life – so use it – and savour the precious days.

GET INSPIRED

Have a look at my Facebook pages too. You can follow me and get inspiration to be the best version of yourself.

I was also extremely fed up with the attitude towards ageing in Norway! Why on earth do the so called experts automatically assume that you are going rapidly downhill after 50?

That your future life menu consists of a big selection of illnesses and weaknesses both in body and brain. It is an attitude, based on beliefs more than facts. A lot is just nonsense!

Most of these illnesses are related to lifestyle!

The older you get, the more toll it takes on your body – and it will gradually collapse. A lot can be turned around, renewed and repaired by alternative lifestyle, but a lot of people choose medicines and sorry-me instead.

It is scientifically very well documented that you can slash years off your biological age and dramatically reduce your risk of mortal illnesses by sensible lifestyle and activity.

So, actually my blog is all about getting biologically younger, healthier, fitter and full of life, laughter and energy.

I have come a long way since I moved to my magic Island of Fuerteventura. I am getting on to 78, but I think actually I have been really rejuvenated since I moved here.
