It's the summer season which means I'm back (finally) at my summer employment! Which is Kalmar castle! This week we had two days of rehearsals to get ready for when we open our doors for the public next week!

There is always so much joy meeting the people I will spend the summer with, old and new faces! I get to work with some of my best friends such as Sanna!

First day we where rehearsing an new guide tour which has some acting elements in it. We all got to rehears lines and learn places. It felt like we could have used more time but you also learn while doing so I'm not worried! I'm exited and nervous sense I'll be doing it the first day of this season! But I bet it's gonna be fine! I have the whole weekend to make sure I know every line in my sleep.

It's amazing to think that this is where I get to go to work every day! Isn't it beautiful?! I always feel like it smells so homey when I start! I never hate going into work there! Second day was spent going thru things I already knew but it was for us who have worked there a little longer to teach the new ones. We have a lot of different activities to know and I remember how much I thought it was to learn my first year!

Afterwards we all hung around outside of work having a picnic sort of party! This is something we in the team do almost every week! It's a great way to get to know every one and have fun! It brings out closeness between us and makes work all that more fun!

I can't even say how exited I am! I can't wait to go to work on Monday!

So this weekend I celebrated my 22 birthday with a lovely brunch. I had some of my closest friend coming over! Last couple of years I've dreaded my birthday, not wanting to get older, but this year I was very exited. I feel like being 22 is a pretty nice age!

Also I used to hate having my birthday in the beginning of summer because it would be just after school ended and everyone would go away on vacation so no one would be home to come to birthday parties. I always ask to have my parties before summer break or after it so my friends could attend.

This brunch was a small gathering of friends but that's usually how I like it. I'm so happy with how the day turned out! It's so lovely getting to celebrate your birthday with people you love! We also had supreme luck with the weather! It had been cold and rainy all week but on this Saturday it cleared up and it was so warm and nice.

We started up with some welcome mimosas, Alcohol free of course and we all sat down for a mostly vegan brunch. All of my guest and I were either Vegans or Vegetarians so It wasn't anyone complaining XD actually I found it really nice being able to fix things everyone could eat and enjoy. It's not always that people who eat meat enjoys coming over for my cooking.

Then we decided to get some good use out of the pool!

It was so nice in the water and I got to use my new pool toy from Madlady.se which I orded a while back. It's just been to cold to use ever sense I got it! I do love floating around on a gigant melon! It also inspired many fruit jokes! I mean we spent at least an hour in there probably closer to two! It was so nice!

Afterwards some of us decided to head to a place a bit away called Ölands choklad who makes some of the best ice-cream ever! They also make fantastic chocolate hence Choklad meaning chocolate but we where definitely there for the ice-cream which was as amazing as always! I adore their dark chocolate flavor. It's the best and they make all their ice-cream themselves!

I had such a lovely time! And I'm so thankful for my friends who made my birthday so amazing!

Note to selfe: don't leave phone unattended with Sanna and Lisa in close approximate or you'll have 100 of these photos to delete later on!

Hey

Today is just one of those days which I'm not on top. I'm a pretty happy person but today just ain't that kind of day. 

I feel like it should be a good day. I got to sleep in, I had a good breakfast, Went into town to fix a couple of things, got lunch at my favorite place and even got a lot of writing done on a project that I haven't been able to write anything on for so long. I should feel relaxed, but I'm just feeling anxious and sad. 

 Well you can't feel good everyday and I need to remind myself that it's okay to have days when you feel down even without a reason. No ones happy all the time.

Nah, now I just need to finish my ice tea, maybe get a hug fro someone I love and look forward to this weekend when we're celebrating my sisters graduation. I just felt like charing to get a chance to work trough what ever this is. 

Love

I thought that sense June starts today I should give you some of my favorite Photos from the month that's just been. Like a little look back to what happened in 31 days. Not that I got photos saved from all days.

First I have this photo of Sanna with her Dog Fluffy. Are they just the cutest! This was taken at out Lookbook shot which I'm really proud of! I became better than I thought it would be. The only thing I don't like about it was that we had a smudge on the lens and we only noticed after we filmed the first outfit! But you learn from your mistakes and next time we definitely won't!

Next photo is of my love Elsa sleeping in my room. She was just being to cute not to bring out the camera to save the moment!

This two where also from the shot of the lookbook. It was my third outfit and though we took some amazing photos at this location we didn't end up filming there sense the one holding the camera had to be standing in some bushes to take the photos. It didn't feel optimal for filming!

This is one of my favorite outfits of the moment. But it's also much more casual than I usually dress so it's feels a little weird to me that I like it so much. Not that casual is anything bad! I wish I could be more casual but I usually don't feel comfortable in it. But this I love!

This two where taken at very different walks but they're both very beautiful to me! It's of our family dog Bella (Short for Bellatrix, yes as in the death eater) and she's just to photogenic! I so often end up snapping a photo of her when we're walking.

And what would any month in my life be with out some amazing time spent at my favorite café Balck. Especially with the lovely company of Sanna. We are officially regulars now. They know my favorite order but they also know I like to mix it up from time to time. When ever they've gotten a new coffee been they ask if I want to try it. I would not have believed people a year ago if they told me I was going to be able to drink black coffee and enjoy it! And know I love trying all their beans! How times changes things.

I've had a pretty lovely weekend. It felt long sense I got two extra days of from work. An four day weekend, that don't happen to often. And I'm really not complaining!

On Friday I meet up with Sanna to film a video for our Youtube channel. Then we went to a café called Oas for a super nice Suger free treat. I had an amazing brownie, probably one of the best ones I've ever had, it was just a bonus that it was suger free as well! I also got a juice to which was alright but not nearly as good as the brownie. it was slightly to much of a smoothie yet not enough of a smoothie for my taste if that could explain it. I just don't know. I probably won't be getting it again.


Sanna got herself a smoothie bowl which was amazingly good, yes I had a taste! It was chocolate goodness! It really tasted like it was chocolate cookie batter!

We obviously had a great time! we always do! We had a bit of shopping to. I got myself a new summer dress, really casual but nice to trow over a bikini when you're going to the beach. I was really lacking clothing to just put over something else. I rarely get myself anything casual. But I really like this one, it's a grey long dress with an open back from H&M.

Saturday was a little slow. I spent a some time with my dad who was here to watch an windsurfing competition. He's an pretty good surfer himself but sadly he'd have an operation recently so he can't surf as he usually do. But we sat around the beach watching the surfurs. I know little to nothing about surfing anything but the internet. I was able to surf when I was like 11 but I don't remember anything and I haven't been on a surfing board in years! So sitting there watching was mostly for dad but it was nice anyway. lately it's almost been a tradition sense they hold the competition at the same place every year and we usually end up sitting there watching.

Then Sunday came around and it was time for the most important birthday of the year! My moms! To celebrate this incredible woman we went to lunch down at the marina in Färjestaden. It was one of those perfect days, sun is shining, people are swimming down at the beach and you can just smell summer in the air.

We had an delicious meal outside in the warm sun and spent time just the two of us. I feel that we rarely have the time to do something nice just the two of us. So it was a real treat.

Then we headed home and made barbecue dinner with ice-cream for dessert. What can I say to sum up this weekend but: weekend well spent!

Last weekend I traveled back to the town where I grew up, Nyköping, to spend sometime with my family. I went by car with my mom, it's a long drive but it goes much faster than with bus so every time I can go buy car is a blessing.

Once I arrived my mom, one of my little sisters and I went to a local café where my other little sister works and drinks some coffee. we had a lovely time, sitting outside while catching up.

Afterwards my mom and I walked around for a bit before we headed to the restaurant we had reservation at. My mom, my sister and I had a very pleasant evening at this restaurant which was one of those tapas restaurant where you order a couple of small dishes instead of one big one. I always end up being so stuffed at those places even though I never end up ordering more than three dishes. You'd think i'd learn but no!

Than I spent sometime with my dad and his fiancé before the day was over.

Sunday was just spent traveling back home. I really wish I could go back and visit more often. I do miss my family very much even though I still have my mom. I miss having my sisters to just randomly hang out with. We're so close in age we've always been really good friends. I miss just being able to go to the other room and hang out. But it's all a part of growing up I guess.

at least it isn't to long until I get to see them again sense my sisters graduation is in a couple of weeks!

Hi you all!

This weekend has felt super hectic! Sanna and I where filming yesterday for our Youtube channel, which took up most of the day. I was over at hers at 11 am and went home at 5 pm, we basically filmed all day! The video we're currently working on is a spring Lookbook and I'm super happy with what we got so far! I think our outfits really represent who we are in our individual styles and it gives two different takes on spring fashion!

We each had four outfits to shot so we where running back and forth all day, changing and carrying equipment. We did also take a bit of time out from the day to get some coffee and lunch from our favorite coffee shop. Because even if there's a lot to do you have to eat!

Even though I was so tired after, it was a lot of fun. I love working on creating things! And it's even more fun doing it with one of your best friends! Doing things alone makes it harder and it's always nice to get someones input while working. Besides I think Sanna and I have kind of similar visions when it comes to filming youtube videos and Instagram photos so we communicate very well. I'm incredibly happy working on these things with her!

We also took the opportunity to photograph each look for our blogs and Instagram so heres a little sneak peak of one of my favorite outfits from the day!

It's one of my more casual looks and I'm completely involve with this striped T-shirt I just got from And other stories. The fabric is really comfortable and it's nicely over sized. I hate T-shirts that cling to much to the body. I don't think it flatters my body. Which is why I usually have a hard time finding T-shirts. Therefor you'll be seeing much of this one this summer, because I will basically live in it XD

You will have to wait for the video to see more outfits, I'm planning of keeping them a secret. I'll link to our Youtube channel below. As I said in my last post it's a Swedish channel so we will be speaking in Swedish on it. Just a warning for all non English speaker. But we the Lookbook won't have any speaking at all so anyone can watch and understand that!

Anyway, today will be spent editing photos and some behind the scenes material. Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

I love taking care of my skin and one of the things that takes the most damage are my feet! Especially in the colder months. So I'm always on the look out for things that will make my feet less dry. And I recently got this cuticle butter from Lush, yes cuticle butter! I know, not the first thing you think to get for your feet. But I promise it works wonders

I went into Lush with the sole purpose to find something for my feet. Because my last foot cream was nice but I had to use it way to often for it to really have a lasting results.

When I asked for the best they had for dry feet they gave me this. Which they first marked for cuticle but they now say you can use for any part of the skin that's a bitt thicker, like elbows, feet and of course you can still use it for cuticle!

It's really nice, I like how it works into the skin and honestly it smells heavenly! This is one I product I love so much! I use it a couple of times every week on my feet, especially if I have been walking around a lot. I also use it for it's first attended use and it makes the hands smells so good!

This photo has nothing to do with the post but it's pretty :)

I know I haven't written anything in about a week... I have been on and of sick for the past weeks and there for not I haven't had much energy for anything thing.

But what have I been up to beside being sick and not doing much interesting to write about is...

Well Sanna and I started our own Youtube channel! It's in Swedish and our first video is up right now and it's of us answering a couple of questions about ourself!

I know not everyone can understand it sense we decided to talk in Swedish but sense it's easier for us being our first language we decided we could make better videos. I might end up putting subtitles on them though. I'll tell you if I do!

It's funny that if you stroll through your home town on a quiet Saturday you can find new and exiting places if you only dare stray of from the path you usally takes. I was just walking around thinking about getting some lunch when I happened appon a new Café I hadn’t seen before. Turn out it opens just the day before and I hadn't heard anything about it. The café is called Oas and I had to hop in and try it out. What really made me intrested was the fact they had vegan and raw food options, which is things I like very much.

So being me I thought a smoothie would be the perfect lunch before my continued walk. I had been thinking about just grabbing a coffee to sit down and write but this was a happy turn of event.

I choose there Strawberry and pineapple smoothie and you really could taste that they only used freash fruit to make it. It was really good. the Café was very home, It was a rather small café with a lot of wooden details and flowers. The decor was dark wooden chairs and tables that didn’t match each other, which I find indearing at cafés. It gives it the whole rustic feeling. The only think I could say that was bad was that I wished the smoothie was bigger sense It was gone to fast!

After wards I walked some more and then decided that it wasn't a proper trip to town without visiting my favorite coffee shop Balck! So here's some pretty latte art and a brownie which was so good! It were their new one and it had peanuts covered in caramel on the top! Sense I love both chocolate and caramel this was a double win for me! Nothing still beats Balck's coffee in my heart so while trying new things is very fun I always know where I will go back over and over again!
