I've spent the past few weeks (or shall I say months? It's been a week here and a week there) decluttering and going through my wardrobe. There are so many things I could either sell or give away instead of keeping it stowed away in a cupboard somewhere. You should see my wardrobe, it has basically become a storage space. When I say that it was filled to the brim, I really do mean it. So week by week, day by day it has slowly started to come together. I have currently got three different bags of clothes to either sell, give away or throw head first out the window (I'm not actually going to throw them out the window, don't you worry!). But how do you actually maintain a "put together wardrobe"? Here's my plan: First of, I'm not going to buy things I don't need or don't have any use for. Also not gonna let my mother trick me into getting something that I may or may not wear at some point in the far away future, but most probably never will, just because it's on sale. Nope. Not happening. Secondly, if it's winter I'll keep the summer wear tucked away until next year and wise versa. There is absolutely no point in having knitted scarves taking up half the storages space in the midst of summer whilst trying to reach for the nearest bathing suit, is there? Third, this is something I'd like to call "Out with the old and in with the new". My aunt has this sort of rule that when she goes out to buy something new, two items need to go. Now I'm not quite sure about this so I'm going to leave it at not having more than two similar pieces (part from basic white tops and t-shirts because I live in those). Taking a look at my wardrobe, as far as the colour scheme goes, it consists of white, grey, black, blue and deep red. I've been meaning to try and add a bit more colour and I did recently buy a pair of velvet dusty rose shorts from Topshop. I also have my beloved striped trousers from Zara and a brand new light blue floral dress from NLY. So if all goes according to plan, hello new wardrobe!

Took the bus to Gothenburg on Wednesday. Which surprisingly enough went pretty well. I felt a bit nervous before I got on the bus but as soon as I found myself a seat it felt a bit better. I think it was mostly due to the fact that I didn't have an appointment or anywhere I needed to be at a certain time. Otherwise it probably would've been a disaster! (Which, no thank you). Been feeling a bit under the weather these past few days. My sister spent most of last week tucked up in bed battling a fever and a sore throat. And as I'm turning twenty three next week I hope I don't get sick aswell. My birthday week officially starts on Monday so I really hope the both of us are feeling better by then. I'm having early birthday celebrations with my grandma on Monday and then I think, on either Thuseday or Wednesday, we're going back to our summer house where we are spending midsummer. I'm really happy my birthday falls on midsummer this year. It makes it all feel a bit more festive and I can always pretend the food and celebrations are all for me. I'm making three flower crowns this time. Not sure how long it's going to take me to make them, but I'm sure I'll have time over for cake. My sister and I are making a vegan chocolate cake with "snickers"-topping the day before, which I'm most excited for. Happy early birthday to me!

It makes me so happy that there are brands that has either gone 100% vegan or at least cruelty free. But still, 80% of governments around the world have not banned animal testing in cosmetics. It's such a shame that we still need to be conscious about this. If some brands can do it, why not all of them? I strongly believe that innocent creatures should not have to suffer because we want to wear makeup. The Body Shop is a brand that was formed on the belief that no animal should ever be harmed for beauty and believe that by 2020, we can do this and stop animal cruelty in cosmetics. To do this, together with Cruelty Free International, they have started their biggest campaign ever for animal rights and they need as many signatures as possible to convince the governments and the UN to sign up to this international legislation. You can either go to thebodyshop.com/ban-animal-testing to read all about it or sign the petition here.

It's time to make a difference. I've signed the petition. Have you?
