OMG GUYS! The day I was longing for has finally come! I don’t know if I should laugh, pinch myself or just drink some wine and celebrate. Why? Well my summer break has officially started!!! The last three weeks were packed with exams, essays, reports, quizzes, counting points and generally stressful everyday life. But I did great and now I’m definitely going to celebrate this!
Anyway, I was thinking I would show you some pics from my iPhone to show you what I’ve been up to lately:

I was at a Highly Suspect concert and I loved (almost) every second of it. If you want to read my review about it you can do it HERE (it's in Swedish). Also, I learned from a fan that the "MCID" that they have on their backdrop and all their merchandise stands for "My Crew Is Dope". Two days after the concert I had some Korean BBQ for the first time.

We attended Jimmy Kimmel Live! outdoor concert with Phoenix. It was my first time seeing this band and I really loved the show! The colorful light show matched their clothes, and the guitarist on the far right had some killer moves, haha. And of course we had a selfie-session while waiting for them to start playing... Who wouldn't? The "white one" is from my phone, the "yellow ones" are from Sannas. She loves looking like a Simpson-character, haha. At the first sight all of our selfies look the same... But I promise you, there's a slight difference between all of them ;)

When I turned in my last assignment for this semester we decided to celebrate with Vegas Seafood Buffet. It's so priceworthy when eating during lunch! They got sushi, seafood, Brazilian barbecue, Asian, American, and Italian dishes, and a huge dessert section with fruit, cakes and frozen yoghurt. We ate mostly sushi to be honest, but we did share a plate of desserts as well (I ended up eating only the cheesecake and fruits, haha).

So much to do, so little time! Finals weeks are here and I’m studying every day… BUT “All work and no play…” you know how that one ends right? So of course I’ve been trying to have some fun here and there to light up the dull reality of finals. Last week we went to a preview of a movie at Warner Brothers studios, this Saturday I was at Highly Suspect show and yesterday I met up with @chessiemabelle , Stella and their friend and experienced Korean BBQ for the first time (sooooo good!). I’m kind of halfway with my finals right now (I had two final exams yesterday and one the day before + a group project presentation) and all I’ve left is finishing a research essay on childhood obesity (I chose the subject), marketing research final exam and a rapport for the same class. I want my summer break now!!

If there’s one spot where you can randomly run into a celebrity here in LA it’s Melrose Trading Spot. Kendall Jenner, Taylor Swift, Drew Barrymore, Malin Akerman, Lucy Hale, Ashlee Simpson, Pete Wentz, Lily Colin… That’s just a few of celebrities seen at that market. First time I was there with Freddy I saw Rob Raco (plays Joaquin in Riverdale). What can you find there beside celebrities? Things like vintage shoes and clothes, artwork, furniture, vinyl’s, accessories, handmade soap and candles, and other things like the robot in the first picture, haha. When you feel overwhelmed by all the impressions you can sit down at one of the carpets and listen to the live music, grab something to eat or drink and just chill for a moment before continuing your shopping spree.

For a short burst of time Los Angeles seems to be in purple-blue bloom. Lavender blossoms of jacaranda trees are everywhere you go, like pastel fireworks exploding along the streets and spreading their petals on the sidewalks transforming them to purple carpets. Jacaranda season may be brief, but the uncontained violet haze that it brings is bewitching. I just had to channel my inner enchantress and pose next to them before they disappear!

I miss Italy, I really do. There’s something special about that country, but I’ve hard time putting it into words. It's the atmosphere, people, the beautiful architecture and all the history behind it, art, food, language, and wine put together. I don’t think I could live in Italy, but I would love to visit it once a year. I would love to go back to Venice, Florence and Pisa, but I also still want to see Rome, Milano and even Vatican. Last time I was in Italy (pictured above) was with my mom on a mother-daughter trip. We went to Pisa, Lucca and Florence and I remember how I recognized every important building from Assassins Creed 2, haha. They did a great job reconstructing the city in that game, but it's thousand times more beautiful in real life!

Yesterday I had the pleasure to see DC’s new movie Wonder Woman at its world premiere in Hollywood. There was so many celebrities there that you literally saw one or two wherever you looked and we had seats really close to both Candice Patton (plays Iris West on Flash) and Caity Lotz (plays Sara Lance on Legends Of Tomorrow - love her character!) that sat together, and Connie Nielsen that plays Queen Hippolyta. It definitely made me even more excited, haha. Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) and the director Patty Jenkins presented the movie. Chris sang and goofed around with Gal and Patty thanked everyone before the movie started rolling. I just have to say; WOW Gal is such a beautiful woman and her red sequin dress was stunning!
Photography inside the theatre was strictly prohibited so I can’t show you guys anything from that part of the night, but I can tell you that the movie is very good! It made me laugh (a lot) and cry, there’re many kick-ass action scenes, it’s romantic… and oh, there’s that naked scene with Chris Pine – definitely a plus. No but seriously, it’s a wonderful (see what I did there?) superhero movie. Also, I feel like it was about time that we had a superhero(ine) movie with a woman as a lead character, girl power! After the screening we run into Eugene Brave Rock that plays Chief in the movie so I took the opportunity to take a picture with him.


Wonder Woman hits movie theaters on June 2, don’t miss it!

“Stop playing hard to get”, I don’t know how many times I’ve heard a range of different versions of this sentence. Mostly from men, but also from my friends that think I should “get more out there”. I’m not feeling it. Sure, I’ve tried to give people chances when I didn’t really want to, but it never led to anything more than an entertaining story at its best, or just a waste of time at its worst.
Recently I was reminded (thanks social media!) about a guy I had a short fling with a couple of years ago. It was doomed from the start; nevertheless I really felt a connection there. It was magnetic. It wasn’t only physical, even though I could have drowned in his eyes. I felt like I could be myself from the start, there wasn’t a moment when we didn’t have a topic to talk about. We both felt it.
And now, thinking back, I remember that I really wasn’t playing “hard to get”. I asked him for his number and gave him mine. The first night I met him. I didn’t play any games talking with his friends more than him, I was talking with everyone but my attention was always directed at him.
Even though this connection was the most magnetic one, similar scenarios have happened through the years. There was this one guy I would’ve never seen myself with in theory and the first guy I felt something for… With them, I just knew what I wanted and I never played hard to get. I think I knew that if I didn’t try I would regret it; I couldn’t let it be decided by “destiny” or whatever you want to call it. I had to take it in my own hands. But that happened with no more than three guys in my life.
The rest… Well, I was just not interested or hesitant. And when I’m not interested, I’m just hard to get because I’m not feeling the whole situation. No, I’m taking that back, I’m not hard to get when I’m not interested, I’m impossible to get. If I’m hesitant, I might give you a chance, but there won’t be any magical sparks and I won’t ever look back at it years later and still miss the thing we had. How can I be so sure? Because deep inside I know that I’m still waiting to feel that magnetic force again.

Echo Park Lake is by far the most impressive park I’ve seen here in Los Angeles. There’s a lake (duh!) where you can rent pedal boats, a fountain (with a rainbow), palm trees, roses, water lilies, green lawn, a romantic bridge, great jogging path, turtles, ducks, swans…. You name it! And besides that there’s a stunning view of a part of Downtown LA as well. It was pretty windy when we visited the park (you can see how messy my hair is in the pictures because of that, haha) and we got some unwanted shower from the fountain but not even that could spoil the experience. I already look forward to my next visit!

Fun fact: This park is pretty famous and if you have seen the movie Chinatown (with Jack Nicolson) or TV-shows Sons of Anarchy or Agent Carter you’ve seen it before! There’s also lots of bird’s-eye view over the park and downtown filmed for different shows such as Lucifer or reality-TV like Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

The first thing I see is a small alley with paper lanters, Japanese signs, and lit up windows. Japanese pop music is playing from the speakers, people are greeting me in Japanese and I hear busy kitchen sounds. Did I go for a quick trip to Japan? Well, almost. I ended up at Daikokuya Sawtelle to satisfy my ramen cravings. The interior is stunning! They recreated a Japanese backstreet so realistic that it feels like you’ve been teleported to the streets of Japan. I ordered the spicy miso ramen (not so spicy in my opinion) and iced green tea, both very tasty. I chose to sit by the bar so I could watch how the ramen was made in the huge saucepans. The service is quick, helpful, and very friendly. I would definitely recommend this place if you like Japanese cuisine!

I was out shooting Freddy when I saw this Ford Customline. The baby blue color caught my eye and when I saw the tree with pink flowers I just knew that I had to take some pictures with it. There’s something about old cars that I really love, they are romantic in a way, aren’t they? I don’t know much about cars, but the older ones have more character then the new ones and they always make me think about the things I love from the decades they come from. This one is from 50’s, a decade that gave us great things like music by Frank Sinatra, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley, James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause, Elizabeth Taylor was one of the most popular stars in Hollywood back then and Marilyn Monroe was the sex symbol… just to mention some. Oh, and don’t forget the invention of liquid eyeliner that made the cat-eye line much more precise!
