Hey

So for a little less than a year I've updated here pretty regularly. It's been fun and a challenge! I started writing this blog because I wanted to evolve in my writing and now I've come to a place where I want to take a new step, to evolve in a new way.

This blogs gives me a place to write often, a chance to write to become better and I feel that to now go to the next step I need to start writing in my native language.

I've really challenged myself writing in English and over the last couple of month I've felt like I've become much better at it, but I know I would be a more fun and true to myself in Swedish and I think I would much rather enjoy it.

Therefor I've decided to change to Swedish. I've thought about it for a long time now and I know it's the direction I want to take. It's a change which I think will be beneficial to me and my writing in the end.

So this is the last time I'll write in English. I honestly wanted to write this post explaining why, because me only changing without giving a reason might have been confusing. I hope to become better from this, I really do.

so with love

So yeah Halloween is here soon! (Well I usually call this whole month Halloween)

 I'm going to Lund for a Halloween party the weekend after the 31. It's two of my best friends, Isabell and Per who are hosting in their new place. It's the first time I'm going to see it so I'm really exited!

But this means I have to have a costume. And isn't that one of the hardest thing to decide. What to be at Halloween. There are just to many option! But I think I've figured it out!

Okay ,so as I have mentioned I watched the new Kingsman film a couple of weeks back and really loved it so I've decided to dress up as a Kingsman agent. I mean any excuse to get a suit is a good one right! Also I get to be an epic spy. I'm not going to be any in particular sense I don't have the time or money right now to get a good wig for like Roxy so I'm gonna make my own. And I already have a pair of fitting glasses and a fake gun from a previous costume!

So Today I went to the shops looking for a suit. I went to second hand sense I didn't want to pay much and I found the best suit pants ever. They are a kind of medium grey and they just fit like a glove! Best part is that they only were 75 kr! Like that's nothing and I'm going to get a good wear out of them not only for this costume! I also got a white shirt, but I'm still looking for a good jacket. I ain't to worried sense I have a couple of weeks left. But this means I'm pretty much finished already and It hardly cost me anything.

I also managed to buy my first christmas gift...I know it's early but I like spreading out the christmas shopping over a longer time to not be stuck doing all of it right around christmas. I've done that and I hate it. So yeah First gift bought today and I've made a list for everything else so I know what I'm getting everyone and what my budjet is. Very planned and grown up of me, haha!

Anyway I feel like this has been a pretty productive day. Hope you all have had a good day to!

So I thought I would actually make an September favorite list sense I have a couple of new favorite products which I've found this month. Just letting you guys know I'm in no way sponsored, I just really enjoy these things and want to share them!

Back when I made the first list I really thought I would make these every month and look at it now! This is my second ever XD wasn't the last one in February....HaHa

Well I'll put the things into two different categories: Skincare and clothing. Because that's what I got for you ;)

First up clothing!

My first favorite this month has to be this hat from H&M. It has already been featured on my Instagram so many times! I absolutely adore it. It goes with pretty much everything and I love to just put it on and don't have to bother about the hair. Life saver for bad hair days.

It's also seems to be one of the more popular fashion trends this Autumn because I keep seeing these kind of styled hats everywhere. It's a trend I'm absolutely into!

Another favorite that has featured a couple of times on my Instagram is this over sized sweater which is, to be fair, more of a dress than a sweater.

I brought it from BikBok and I don't actually know if it's still in stock, Sorry! I brought it on sale because I've been looking for something similar for a while and I absolutely loved it. I've worn it so many times sense I got it. It makes for a killer outfit but also is just the best to lay around in on a lazy day sense it's so comfy.

I also taken up earring it almost overtime I travel because it's just super nice to sit on a bus or train in. You look comfy but also nice.

                                                      Now for some Skincare! 

So I got two new favorite for skincare this month which I both bought at Åhlens. They started September with skincare as one of their focus and they delivered! Both of these are made by Lumene and I just love, love, LOVE them!

First up we got this Glow boost vitamin C. I've been using it in my morning routine after I've toned. It just gives the skin that little extra glow that make you shine. I love it and sense I've got it I have started to use a little less makeup because I want my natural skin showing thru. But it dries up the skin a bit so I highly suggest to always use a moisturizer after putting this on. Or you're skin will feel stretched out during the day.

Second product is this Nordic girl face scrub. And this is my top fav of the month! Seriously this have worked wonders for my pores! I don't know if it's because it's made with nordic skin in mind but it just cleared up my skin so well. I've had scrubs I liked before but this one beat them all out of the water. So you go Lumene! I will be using this like crazy 

But those where all my favorites this month. I know not a long list but I have been trying to spend less on things I actually don't need in my life. I think we spend way to much money on things we use once maybe twice. So I've been way better on only putting money on what I really want and/or need. I think I've cut my spending habits in half sense I started thinking but I know I can get even better!

Fika, one of my favorite words which I think should be used in every language because saying "drinking coffee" just isn't good enough!

So today was a lot better than yesterday. But I've still felt kind of crappy today, being as upset as I was yesterday kind of leaves a mark on my mentality the next day and I've been wondering around with a headache all day.

So today I let myself sleep in, mostly because I didn't have anywhere to be today but also because we finally have internet in our apartment. This means that I don't have to go anywhere else to do school work. So I had a lazy morning, drank some tea, took my time getting ready.

I tried organizing in my closet. I've got to much clothes there and I've been trying to clean it out. I mean there is so much in there I never use! Stuff I've kept for years because I'm keep thinking I might use it one day. So I'm trying to be harder on myself with taking out things while not buying more things. Because I want to be more organized and feel like the things I have are things I really like and will wear!

Lisa, Sanna and I are actually planing a clothing exchange day where we're going to invite friends over with the clothing they no longer want and than we can exchange with each other. I think it's a lovely way to give away things you're no longer using. And the things no one else in the group wants we can give away to local thrift stores afterwards. Great way to be a little more environment friendly!

Anyway after actually taking out like 20 different clothing items from my closet (Still have to much, I'm a bit of a hoarder) I headed down town. I felt like I needed to come out of the apartment for a bit so I decided to get a latte at Balck.

Ah, ever as wonderful Balck!

I was there yesterday with Sanna and it was so packed! It was the cinnamon buns day yesterday and let me tell you, people where flocking to get their buns (me being one of them, Totally worth it they were so good!) 

But today there was only two other guests when I walked in. So I got talking to the baristas. They are just the nicest at Balck!

I stepped in and placed my order, one latte and a bag of coffee beans to take with me home. The Barista greeting me is a new one. I'd only seen him the day before but he was just so approachable and helpful. So we talked and then the other barista looked out from the kitchen because she recognized my voice and had to say hello even though she was doing the dishes. Yes, I might be a bit of a regular, haha!

So I got my coffee, which was amazing as always, and sat down drinking it while editing pictures for Instagram. Once I had finished my cup the two baristas was making Latte art experimenting and asked if I wanted one of the capuchins they've been trying it out on for free sense someone had to drink it. Who am I to say no to that! It was just as good as the latte and I left feeling way happier. 

So yeah, Today has been good to me. Tomorrow I have work all day and then I'm meeting up with some friends for a drink so I have a good feeling!

Love

I just want to take a second to say how lovely this person is!!

We might not have been friends for the longest time but damn she is one of my favorite people in the world!

I had a pretty horrible day today. I had a new course starting today, in a new building I never been to and with teachers I don't know. Campos of the university I attended is spread out all around the city and I have only ever been on the other side of the city where the theatre subjects have their space. So I'm there with plenty of time to spare and all information about what classroom and that written down on my phone. I start looking and can't find it. Times ticking by and soon it's time for my lesson to start. So I call the main teacher, no response. I try a second teacher. I try the first one again. I call about 8 times while walking around trying to figure my way there but no response. Now I'm suddenly late.

So I text Sanna who had some classes in the building and the tried to help me out the best she can, bless her. I try to talk to people I see around the building but no one can give me an answer. I'm getting more and more upset and when almost an hour of the lesson has gone by I totally break down. I try calling my mom, no answer (she was in a meeting) So I get a hold of Sanna again saying that I just can't try and find it anymore because even if I did I'm a right mess. So she tells me to get over to hers, that the kettle will be on and there will be blankets.

Thank God for friends like her! It might seem like a small gesture but I just needed a friend and she was right there. We spent the rest of the evening drinking tea and I wrote an email to my teacher explaining why I didn't show up. This email he could answered and told me he understood and that they'll try to give out more information for the next class as well as all the things they'd talk about in this one.

So Sanna and I had a cozy time talking about everything and nothing and I just want to give her some love because I don't know what I would have done without her.

Love you, you beautiful kind soul!

Guys, I moved this weekend!

To my first real apartment. Like for the first time I'm not living with my parents. I am however living with my sister as roommate, which is lovely, splitting rent and having someone to like is is preferable for me right now. Moving was exciting. It's not by far the first time I've moved in my life, having moved at least five times already but there is something very special moving to your first own place.

Moving the big stuff was easy. My mom, two of my sisters and a friend were all helping so we got most of it there pretty quickly. I didn't have a bed the first night so I had to sleep on the floor but now it's up and it's really nice. It's bigger than my old one which is the reason I wanted a new one. I was tired of almost not fitting XD And I got to test my skills in fixing Ikea furniture so adult task completed! It wasn't even that bad. I got it done in a couple of hours so I'm feeling pretty good.

And my room is starting to look livable, as is the rest of the apartment. It's slowly looking more and more like a home and I love it! I will most likely do a post with photos of it when we're a bit more settled.

But beside moving this weekend was the harvest festivities at Öland which is a hugh thing every year. There are things happening all over the island all weekend and though I didn't have time to partake in to many of them this year I still got to walk around on Friday night, called the art night, when local artist shows of their best works. People open up houses or rent places and people can just walk in and look, buy and talk to the artist. It's so nice to see the island so alive at night, there is lights everywhere. It's were I brought my first piece of artwork from a local artist and it's still my favorite.

We tried the warmth of the ocean at the harvest festivities, it wasn't warm! And the kitten is growing so fast! Soon she'll be all big

And I had planned to post this on Saturday but we don't have internet in the apartment yet so it was postponed a bit. We have orded it so hopefully it'll be up and running soon so I can do school stuff and write at home instead of a café. Not that I'm complaining, coffee I didn't make myself is always nice. And beside I have it way closer to the city now than before. Instead of almost 40 minutes with the bus I can now be in the centrum in about 12 minutes on a bike! So nice, feels like I'm closer to civilization.

Anyway until next time!

Love

My sister and I decided that the best way to celebrated the start of the weekend was to go to the cinema to see the new Kingsman: the golden circle film.

And I've read that a lot of people who loved the first film (which I did) didn't like this one. But I truly enjoyed it. It had the same humor and fast pace, there wasn't a moment I was bored and I had a rollercoaster ride of emotions during the whole film which is all I can ask for in any film. I loved a lot of the characters development from the first film to the second.

Sure there was things I didn't like, a couple of scenes here and there which I felt were a bit to much and I will not forgive the films director for some decisions he made (look at me trying to be cryptic not to spoil it for anyone who wants to see it) But I mostly really liked it! So I would warmly recommend it to everyone.

My sister loved it as well and she hadn't even seen the first one! She just went with me because I didn't feel like seeing it alone, such a sweetheart she is. But she really liked it and I'm exited that I can now analys it into pieces with her (me being more exited about the analyzing part, sense I'm the one who loves that stuff) . She just has to see the first one now so I don't tell her to much about it and ruin it for her.

But yeah, great film! Would recommend!

After the film was over we headed of to the restaurant my sister works at for a drink which was nice. There was an hour between busses and we didn't feel like waiting at the station. But it ment we had plenty of time talking about the film so yay! Now the rest of the weekend is mostly school work and such so this was probably the most exiting thing for this time.

Okay so this weekend was amazing! I got to walk a runway which has been something on my bucketlost for years. It might not been the biggest thing or so but it was really something for me. I mean I never thought I would ever get to so even if it was just a local thing it was such a dream come true!

The fashion show in question was for some local stores in Nyköping to show some of the highlights from what the autumn collections will look like. I walked for a store called Kandelaria which sells woman fashion and home decor from a couple of different brands like Oui and Ida Sjöstedt. 

We where the second group out on the runway so I was pretty excited as well as nervous. But everything was fine! There was a big enough crowed, maybe a 150-200 people or so and they seemed exited! They applauded very loudly at least which was fun. We had no idea how many would show up so it was very nice. And I didn't fall so that's very good! I mean that was one of my main concern. I do know how to walk in heels but with people watching things usually happen more often.

But even better was that I got to walk the runway with my bestie June! Which ment we had time to hang out sense we both arrived the day before the fashion show. So we hung out and had a blast. I mean it's usually rare that we meet up much but now we've hung out twice in a both a month which is awesome!

She was amazing at the fashion show, but she also freelances as a model so it was kind of expected XD She's always stunning and the clothes fit her so well, she was probably the best one there.

Anyway I had a really good weekend. Hope this week is as well!

Today's been a fantastic day!

I was up very early because there was a little cat trying to play with me and I decided it was best to get up right away. So I had breakfast and then I headed out. First I had a appointment to get my hair cut at my usual salong. I really like to go there, I don't really care which hairdresser I go to, I think they are all good and they are great with their costumers. I love getting my hair cut and getting a little head massage when they wash your hair is the lovelies treat! I'm really satisfy with my hair. I was starting to really dislike how long it was getting. But now it's short and light again.

Afterwards I meet up with Sanna and Lisa for a Swedish fika at the as always amazing Balck. We had a great time talking, and drinking delicious coffee and tea. I had this great mozzarella and tomato sandwich that was just so good and fresh!

Then we went thrift shopping. I found this amazing, really oversized jeansjacket, I have been looking for one for forever and it was only 75 kr! (Swedish currency) Which is like nothing! So I'm so exited to get to wear that! I just need to wash it first because I always like to get my own smell on it before wearing it XD I do that with a lot of my clothing.


So after some outfit photos where taken (Thanks guys for complying to my need of finding the right wall even though it took some walking) I headed out to see a play for school. It was called Våga vara (dare being) and was about living and being yourself. It was quite good and really tested the relationship between music and theatre which was so interesting to see.

Now I'm going to chill with some eye masks on.

Oh I had a lot going on this weekend!

Saturday I had school pretty much all day. Which was a lot of fun, we got more into the science of theatre this lesson so it feels like we've really gotten started! Next week we don't have any lessons but we're going to watch a play to analys later!

Sunday was spent with my mom and sister looking at things for the apartment. Mostly a bed for me sense I'm looking for one that's a bit bigger than the one I have currently. And it's so much work trying to find the right one but at the same time you need to really find the right one so you can sleep.

So we didn't buy much, only a basket and some boxes to pack in but I got a better idea of what I'm looking for and what it will cost. There is truly so much to figure out when your moving it's confusing but fun at the same time!

Love
