In this day and age a lot of the things we use every single day has taken a huge toll on our planet. Most of us make an effort to buy fairtrade and organic foods as much as we can. I do believe that we are missing one aspect of trying to help the planet though. Our clothes is a much bigger part of environmental destruction than most of us even know. Our clothes have a long way to go from raw material to the shelves in our stores. It's not strange in any way though. Most brands won't admit how hurtful their clothing is to the environment and to those who make them. Approximately 75 million people work to make our clothes. 80% of them are women between the ages of 18 and 35. On 24 April 2013, the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed. 1,138 people died and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history. There were five garment factories in Rana Plaza all manufacturing clothing for big global brands. The victims were mostly young women. Fashion Revolution is a movement who is working for a better planet and better work conditions for those we take for granted. These workers are being harassed at work and being forced to work long shifts for virtually no money in dangerous buildings for our sake. Every little bit helps. Think twice and go to http://fashionrevolution.org/ to read more and get involved.

"FASHION SHOULD FEEL GOOD.

Much of the global fashion industry is opaque, exploitative and environmentally damaging and desperately needs revolutionary change. We love fashion, but we don’t want our clothes to come at the cost of people or our planet." - http://fashionrevolution.org/

These are my favorite series at the moment. It´s a big mix and the themes aren´t the same at all.

Orange is the new black: this serie is about a woman called Piper. She gets arrested because she´s involved in a drugdealing crime. She gets into a women´s prison and you get to follow her life in prison and how she handles tough things in life.

13 reasons why: this serie is very special and sad. Hannah Baker is a 17 years old girl who´s recenlty took suicide. Before she passed away she recorded 13 tapes where she described exactly why she did what she did. Clay is the main character in this serie. You get to follow him while he listens to the tapes.

Prison break: It´s about one brother who gets into prison but he´s innocent. His brother Michael wants to help his brother out of prison and therefor he gets into prison with him. He starts planning an escaping plan. The two brothers gets through a lot of horrible things but great things too.

Criminal minds: this is my absolute favortie serie of all time. Every episode starts with a crime and the rest of the episode is all about solving the case. It´s very exciting and sometimes scary too.

As you all know, summerbreak is getting closer and on august 5 I´m going to......Mallorca!! I am looking forward to this trip soooo much and I think it´s very neccessary considering how much we have had in school this year. It´s a good way to get some rest and prepare myself for the next school year. We are going to live in Alcudia Pins and it´s such a beautiful place, I love the nature and the food is just amazing! Can´t wait!!

Like many others, I appreciate to travel and especially to warmer countries. There are so many great places to discover and explore. I'm grateful for all types of trips but I have to admit that the Bright beaches and turquoise garden beats everything. Therefore, I would like to share with you my Dream destinations that might inspire you.

Bora Bora with the incomparable beaches, stunning nature and magnificent volcano piles are the perfect destination for a dream destination. Bora Bora has been on my list for a while now but it definitely feels like a special destination that you probably won't visit twice. The wonderful thing about Bora Bora is that you can be as active or inactive as you wish to be. There are a lot of activites to preform, for example lagoon water adventure, glass bottom boat tours, parasailing and kitesurfing lessons. Parasailing seems very intresting but a little bit scary considering the height but apart fom that I would love to try it out.

Bahamas is a destination regardless if it's a wedding, siesta, honeymoon, or a family vacation the crystal clear turquoise blue waters and pearly white sandy beaches, the Island of the Bahamas is the perfect travel destinaion. Snorkeling, swimming and scuba diving are a must while the resorts offer an array of water sports from jet skiing and windsurfing to sailing, kayaking and deep-sea fishing. Something I wan't to visit on Bahamas is the pig beach (Big Major Cay) which is an unhabited Island in the Bahamas that is home to dozens of feral pigs.

Zanzibar is another place that truly looks amazing but haven't been that hyped. Zanzibar is an island in the Indian ocean. It's known fot it's jungle and their beautiful paradise places. I like a place that might be very calm and relaxing without the big crouds of tourists. Traveling to a more rural place is definitely something that I would appreciate. There's also a lot of attractions, a place I would like to visit is Cheetah's Rock which is a uniqie place where people and animals interact. Zanzibars Indian Ocean offers world class watersports including scuba diving, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, kayaking, windsurfing and waterskiing.

This was my outfit from friday. It was sooo hot so my jacket were pretty useless but better that then freeze to death! :) We had a photoshoot in the alleys of Ystad and we had a blast! I have never posed before as a model and you can pretty much see that on the pictures. I tried to link all my clothes but I couldn't find any of them, some of them are a year old and some of them are bought online.

Eyelash extension has become a commonplace for many Swedes, especially me. I build my lashes in Malmö at Lilly Gardens about every third weeks. The reason is that you do not want to put mascara on your lashe´s every day in the morning. Many even do it when you go to a party or in some case a wedding. You could also have it now in the summer if you wanna be extra pretty.

There are two types of euelashes you can do. The first is singel-lashes where you dump a lash into glue and then attach them to to the costumer´s own lashe´s. The other type is the volume-lashe´s that are very popular right now. It´s gives a more natural and fuller look. An important factor for a successful eyelash extension is that the client´s own lashe´s are spotted individually.

Tip

1. Remove all eye makeup and clean your lashe´s with mild oil-free cleaning.

2. Do not put on any mascara or eyeliner.

3. Don´t bend your eyelashes

Recently I have been thinking about my relationship with myself because of various different reasons. One of the biggest reasons is most definitely my health. I have been struggling with health issues for about a year and my situation has been getting a lot worse recently. This has been affecting my relationships with my friends and my performance in school especially. I have realized now that I haven't been respecting myself enough and that I haven't been listening to myself when I should have. I have been too worried about trying not to miss out on experiences and keeping up with my schoolwork and because of that I haven't stopped and just listened to myself. This became very apparent when I very recently had a medical emergency and I was rushed to hospital and I faced the possibility of being forced to stay home for weeks just to have time to rest and regain my strength to function normally, that is if I don't start to take care of myself. One of my biggest reasons to power through have been and still are my friends but I have to realize that there is no reason for me to be there with them if it in the end results in me being hospitalized and I trust my relationship with my friends enough for them not to forget about me even if that has been one of my biggest fears and a reason for me to force myself to get up and go to school no matter if that is a good decision or not or whether that will affect my health negatively. I have realized and want to spread the message that nothing good will come from you making yourself feel worse. You have to have a solid ground to stand on for you to even be able to build anything worth building. That could refer to a career or a new relationship. Everything that you do stems from you and if you don't feel well nothing that you do or put out will turn out well. Resting doesn't equal laziness and respecting yourself doesn't equal making excuses.

I went to London last year and had to make a video for my music class so I combined them and made a London travel diary! I thought it was really fun both to travel and have a memory from the trip in a motion picture. The sad part is the quality of my content. I filmed with my iphone and my editing program (Windows movie maker) isn't the best program get the most quality. One other thing I couldn't fix were to "fill" the video on the whole screen but you can still watch it right? ;)

This weekend have been very warm and nice. this saturday I went to my grandmother and stayed there until sunday. We had a barbeque and I really enjoyed the evening. Of course we didn't missed the icehockey game against Finland ;)

The day after we went to a beautiful lake and her lovely dog Tindra played in the water. Look at her, she's soooo cute! Yesterday's night I watched the world cup in ice hockey, Canada against Sweden. Incredible that we won! Never thought we could beat Canada, home nation of hockey.

Great end of the weekend, now it's time for a new week, which will be short because we are free this thursday and friday. Can't complain :D

I´m happy to see that summer is here and I hope with all my heart that it will stay for a long time. The weather this week has been amazing and it makes me very happy and excited. I feel like all swedish people gets happier when it´s sunny, including me!

Me and my mom visited Ystad beach yesterday. (there´s where i´m going to spend all my summerdays at). It was wery nice and we even saw multiple kids bathing in the sea. Way too cold for me.

It has been about 18 degrees the last couple of days and it looks like it will keep being this warm. I defienlty hope so. All my friends have been sunbathing a lot and they have gotten great results, including me.
