I had to go in to the Pandora shop in Liverpool to see how their shop look like. And oh my goodness t was busy!

On Saturday we went to Liverpool for the day, we left quite early and it took us less than an hour to drive there. The first thing we did was go to The Christmas Market, it wasn't that big I guess it's still a bit early but it was cozy :) Liverpool was beautiful we spent most the on the main street for some shopping, and omg it was busy when you're not use to a busy city it gets me very overwhelmed...

A must when you are in Liverpool is to visit the Cavern pub where The Beatles started, and near the harbor they have a statues on them, I think it's quite new Amelie said that the statues wasn't there last time they were there. We had a great cozy day I really want to go back there again :)

I took some snaps on some parts in Amelie’s house, they have many cute corners and cute decorations. This just makes me wanna have my own house NOW to decorate and buy lots of cute things for the house :)

After Amelie finished work yesterday we walked in to town and did some grocery shopping, I love seeing what other countries has on their shelves at the supermarket and England has lots of goodies lol. Then we or they cooked a delicious typical English meal and we had a cosy evening watching tv and ate snacks :)

Today I thought I would walk in to town again (if I remember the way) 🙈

My sitter and Mum <3

Here are some pictures from our little trip up north in Sweden :) Östersund is a beautiful city it hasn’t the lake, hills and beautiful old buildings. When I was younger I spent a lot of summers up there with Johanna or my sister felt good going up there I think last time I was there was seven years ago.

It’s definitely colder up north we had beautiful weather the two first days, clear blue sky and very cold air and on our last day we woke up to it was snowing! Very pretty I’m so happy I saw some snow ⛄️

Last night me and Amelie flew to Manchester im so glad to be back in England again and this time im staying in Amelie and Garys new home 🏠 They have only lived here three weeks this Friday actually,  the house is very typical English house the first thing you see when you walk in is the narrow nearstairs haha and it’s quite small but very cozy! The house it perfect for them I’m so happy for them both <3 

On Saturday we’re going to Liverpool I’m very excited for that! :)

I have always like breakfast i always eat it before go anywhere otherwise i get very grumpy before lunch time lol. And i must say that nothing can beat our Swedish breakfast!  the food is definitely​ not the same in NZ even if you can get the usual bread, yoghurt, juice it doesn't​ taste the same so i'm very happy every morning now haha

Yesterday was a such a fun day catching up with Johanna she is so cute and she's a mum now <3 We always talk about when we were younger we have done so much together and everything you can imagine when you are a teenager boys, clubs, friends etc etc so many good (some bad) beautiful memorise :) I am very grateful over that we still have contact and that we can meet when i'm home, even though we haven't seen each other for so long it's like nothing have changed (other then she has a beautiful son now :) <3

​Good morning everyone 

I’m very glad over that I’m here in Sweden when it’s autumn I don’t mind missing the warm weather back in NZ. Autumn and winter has always been my two favorite seasons especially here on this side of the world where its cold and dark as it should be. Yesterday when mum an I walked home from town think it was around 5pm and we both were looking in to other peoples houses because it look so nice and cozy and the houses here are flipping cute some people have already decorate their garden with fairy lights and oh I LOVE IT! :) 

Today I’m going out to a village where I lived basically from when I was 1 year old till I was 17 (I think) I’m going to see my old best best friend Johanna <3 we have known each other since we were toddlers and now she has a toddler her self a baby boy and I can’t wait to see him he’s so cute! 

It’s a new week and on wendsay my sister is arriving to Sweden :D

Hello everyone and Hello Friday

I hope you all are having a good day.  I am back in Uppsala from my short visit to Stockholm,  I had so much fun with Jessica we always have a good time together lots of laughter :) We we’re planing on having a quite chill night but we ended up on a night club where I think we were the oldest people there lol but we had fun we made it to a fun night :) 

I took the train back around 3 pm, as soon as I came in to Uppsala I met up mum and we had tea at a Chinese restaurant so delicious! At seven o’clock we had tickets to the theater to watch Cirkus Cirkör, we both really enjoyed it a lot they were sooo good!!

I’ve been in Sweden  week now and I’ve forgotten how early it get so dark and how bloody cold it’s! I’ve definitely NOT missed this weather at all. I remember how hard I thought it was this time of year it’s dark pretty much all day for months! The cold you just have to put on warmer clothes so that’s fine, the cold weather is totally different from NZ. 

I’m now gonna make myself a cup of tea and watch some Swedish tv ☺️

Good Morning everyone.

After five days without having any decent​ clothes, no makeup no products i've finally got my bag bag back with all my stuff.  I started to get a bit worried yesterday when people were telling us that they didn't know where my bag was if it still is in Sthlm or in Uppsala, no one knew... After many phone calls one could tell us that the bag is in Uppsala and we could go and pick it up, it felt so good knowing that we could pick it up i didn't wanna sit and wait another night for it to be delivered. 

Becasue we had to pick it up i decided to drive there my dad were with me i needed someone to remind me to stay on the right side of the rode haha. I never thought he had to say anything but twice he had to tell me - you'r on the wrong side of the road Erika lol We got home safe and sound with the bag that's the main thing :) On our way home we stopped at MAX, i've missed MAX burger so much i personally think they are the best burger in Sweden 

Today i'm first gonna catch up with mum in town we are going to have a look around, then at 4 i'm taking the train in to Sthlm to see my friend Jessica can't wait to see here <3

I am so excited to start wearing cozy knits and coats. Autumn is one of my favourite season especially when it comes to fashion! I'm having and eye on grey chunky knits, cropped jeans and beanie with pom poms.

The fashion in the shops are amazing, me and mum had a little look yesterday but i only left with a pair of jeans, when Amelie is coming home I'll take her with me on a shopping day :)

Hello everyone.

Yesterday, I was fighting so hard to stay awake for as long as i could during the day I lasted till 7 pm. Becasue i was so tired i thought i would sleep like a princess but NO Kitten Alfons mum and dads cat slept on me or very close to me the whole night so he kept me awake. I shouldn't complain becasue he's the cutes cat and he made me feel that i wasn’t lonely.

I haven't done much today i talked to Adam first thing in the morning (i miss him already) ive 99% spent my day in bed watching Netflix, i catched up with the latest episode of Riverdale then i started to watch season 2 of Stranger Things, such a good series! I have almost finished it ops lol

Also a little update about my luggage, it hasn’t been delivered yet... fingers crossed they will drop it off today 🤞🏻

This is my exciting news that i mention in my earlier post :)

Yes I’m back in Sweden :) I landed this morning in Stockholm the flight was good (but very long) the only bad thing was that my luggage didn't arrive... I was stressing out so much, i thought it was lost in Hong Kong or something but luckily​ it was still in Zurich so it's on its way to my house now. 

If you read my post "positive mind positive life" you'll know that i haven't felt like myself for the last few months, i decided that i needed to do something about it so i took action and i booked myself a ticket to Sweden, just to give myself a little break. I’m not leaving NZ for good I’m only here for four weeks to spend some time with my family and friends, I wish there was an easier and quicker way to see them but 29 hours later i'm here haha.

I’m so excited to be “home” it feels weird speaking and hearing Swedish everywhere I go haha. It was sooo good hugging mum and dad again and I can’t wait to give my sister Amelie a big hug, she's also coming home in two weeks (she lives in England if I haven't mention that earlier) And when she is here the whole family is going for a road trip up north and then I’m going back to England with Amelie for one week,


Lots of exciting things are coming up and I'll of course blog about EVERYTHING! :D

As an tradition i always go to Starbuck when they bring out the holiday coffee flavours :) Today was the first time i had the Pumpkin Spice Latte (one of my favourite) I can't wait till they bring out the Christmas flavours. I had a coffee date with Savannah it was so nice catching up even though we saw each other yesterday at work haha. But In a cafe we can talk a lot it was really lovely and the weather was crap it really felt like Autumn today which made it more cozy sitting there sipping on a hot drink :)

* Talking to my family / Being so far away from my family and to be able to talk to them pretty much when ever is amazing (very grateful for that) they always get me in a better mood straight away, it's my best medicine!

* Playing with the dog Tommy / Now, Tommy is not our dog but seeing him everyday he just makes me so happy every morning when he looks at me with his cute face.

* Cosy nights in/ I am definitely more of a "staying in girl" i hardy ever go out partying any more i love getting cosy in bed with a good movie and snacks.

* Catching up with friends / Having a good laugh with your friends is alway a good idea, who doesn't love their friends you know they are always there for you and that's true happiness!

* Travel / Exploring new places has always been a big interest of mine, if i could travel more i would love to live in my suitcase lol

* Work / I actually really like my job i like what i'm doing and i love everyone i'm working with,. All the girls always put a big smile on my face everyday <3

* Spending time with Adam <3 / Of course i had to throw in a cheesy one, But of course my boyfriend makes me happy every time i'm spending time with him i feel happy (otherwise i would not be with him)

* Pamper nights / I do like a good old pamper night. After a stressful day i love taking a bath and do a face mask and just relax, the feeling afterwards is rewarding.

* Listen to Music / When i feel i want to "disconnect" from everything i always go for a walk and i turn on my favourite song, it's the key when you want to get away and clear your head.

* My blog (social media) / Yes when i update my blog/Instagram (erikaclaesson ) i feel happy and excited to share my things with you guys <3

Hello sweeties

Sorry for a bad update lately, It has been a busy week at work which is good in one way but I don’t get much time to sit down and write unfortunately... But today I got the day off and plenty off time to write <3

I am not sure what the plans are for today Adam is still sick so he can't do anything really and the weather doesn't look that promising.... I think i'll clear out my wardrobe it has been on top of my list for a long time now, i should probably do that today then i can tick that off my list :)

Yesterday when i got home from work my car was parked on the driveway (yay) i was so excited when i saw it, i've missed my car so much you have no idea. If you didn't know Adam accidentally crashed my car (no one got hurt) it must have been more then a month ago and it has taking them this long to fix it (I’m not an car expert but I thought it wouldn’t take this long) Anyways, in the meantime I’ve been driving Adams mums car which is a manual I’m fine driving manual, but i don't like it! Only because there are hills everywhere in this city and I mean steep hills and i'm not doing well when it comes to hills if you know what i mean lol. I am so happy that it’s finally done it means daily things will become so much easier for us now when we got two cars :)

Okay I should get started with sorting out my wardrobe, I hope you all are having a lovely weekend (here in New Zealand is it a long weekend i hope you guys enjoy it)

ALSO next week something really exciting is happening and the blog will for sure be well updated with lots of fun things so stay tuned ;)

I have lived in New Zealand for 5 years now it’s crazy when you say it 5 years...!? I must really like it here otherwise I wouldn’t still be here lol Adam plays a big part in this of course it was for him why I moved.
To be so far away from my family and friends hasn’t been easy I can’t count how many times I’ve called mum or my sister and cried so much wanting to pack my bags and move back home because I miss them so much! But somewhere back off my head Inknow I would regret it if I did.

I don’t think I would call NZ my home yet, as much as I love it here I feel I could move somewhere else one day (I would love to be somewhere closer to Sweden) But this country is magical I have seen so many breathtaking places and there's more to explore, i can’t describe in words how beautiful New Zealand is you need to experience it yourself. And on top off a beautiful country the people here are very friendly there’s still a lot of farming people pretty much everywhere you go you see farms and farmers, it’s more of a laid back vibe here totally different from Sweden and I think that’s what I like about New Zealand.

Happy weekend everyone 

I started my weekend ( Friday) with I tidy the whole house and i mowed the lawns... Oh my goodness my future house is not gonna have a big lawn, i was so knackered after it my body was sore after it (maybe this is a sign i need to start working out haha) 

Later in the afternoon Adams workmate came up to give Adam a had with something, after they were done we all went in to town for a couple of cheeky beers :) It was so nice sitting in the sun drinking a cold beer, the boys drank Guinness i stuck to my Macs Gold we had some nibbles as well it was really nice perfect recover from the morning haha.

In the evening myself and Adam went and saw the new movie The Mountain Between Us I thought it was a good movie i really enjoyed it, would definitely​ recommend​ you all to go and see it :)

Adam will always be my love of my life ;) BUT today this finally arrived to my house and seriously i've fallen in love again (yes i'm in love in a bag) most of us girls do have our little love secret towards our fashion we just love it what ever it's, i've a crush when it comes to bags.

This is not a real Chole bag it's a dupe of the Chloe Faye shoulder bag in size medium, when you don't have the money to spend on a real handbag but you really like designer bags i'm so grateful that there're lot of good dupes out there (The day when i've the money to spend 1000 dollars on a bag, there will be a real Chole bag hanging on my shoulder just saying lol) 

This bag though i am VERY impressed with it, it has these three compartments so you can fit a lot in it and the condition of the bag is amazing! It says it's made of split leather (not to sure what that means) but i do believe it's made of real leather becasue the bag is so soft and in a such a good condition, i don't think it looks that cheap either. Overall i am so so happy with my purchase, to be honest i'm already thinking about to get a Large one in a different colour :) I can't wait to wear it out and about <3

This cold i got is still hanging around i've been sneezing all day and my nose/ears are all blocked :( I basically feel like shit as you do when you're sick... All i wanted to do this morning was to stay in my pj and i wanted to throw my makeup bag away, you know when you are wearing makeup while you are sick it's impossible to make the makeup stay in place the whole day because you blow you nose and your eyes is runny so half of the makeup is gone before lunch time.. So you just look like how you feel (like shit haha)

The first thing i did when i got home from work was to get it to my cozy clothes and take my makeup OFF! It has been a beautiful day today i was thinking about to go for a walk but i'm so tired my body feels like a heavy potato sack lol. I've just taking it easy tidy the room and writing down things for the blog :)

​Here are few things I like to do to make me feel better when i'm sick. First take a hot bath it's good for your tense muscles, put on a face mask (you can never go wrong with a face mask) to get rid of all that dead skin last but not least fake tan. I don't know about you but i personally feel so much better when i got a tan, when i'm pale i feel and look dead lol with a nice golden tan i instantly feel so much better :)

Have a lovely evening you all.
