Still can't get over neither Miansai's lovely bracelets, nor Isabel Marant's skirts or shoes. Wish my wardrobe was a bit more put together, like the outfit above. But right now, with regard to the lovely weather Sweden is blessed with during the winter half of the year, it's more of a yoga pant and hoodie type of day. x
Currently obsessed with Brandy Melville USA's tumblr as well as their clothes and California vibe. Stopped by their store here in Stockholm a few days ago and saw so many nice things I wanted to buy, unfortunately I'm on a shop stop to save up for Sestriere.
Also missing the NY summer nights and day strolls so, so much. Really can't wait to go back later this year, it is truly my happy place. x
Spent this weekend celebrating my two close friends birthdays; Nils who turned 17 during a delicious lunch at Riche, and Vilma at her place with afternoon tea. So it's been an eventful weekend to say the least, and unfortunately my studying has really suffered from it. Therefore, I'm beyond unprepared for my maths test tomorrow, but it'll be fine I think. Or at least I hope so, haha. Hope you few readers had a great weekend as well! x
From last years trip to Sölden, Austria.
Only 19 more days until my friends and I pack our stuff and head down to Italy, Sestriere. Literally can't wait, I'm beyond excited and can't even begin to understand how fast last term has flown by. Feels like it was only a few months ago we bought the tickets. We still have a lot to do before leaving thought, haha. I have to rent skis, since I don't own any myself, and then sort out our transfer from Turin to Sestriere.
I'm going skiing this week although, but with my school and only over the day in Romme. So stoked to finally get to ski again! x
Vill ha saltvatten, sandstränder, sena nätter och solbränd hy.
Craving salty hair, sandy beaches, summer nights and sun kissed skin.
Att lämna New York betydde även att jag behövde lämna mina nya bästa vänner. Att säga hejdå på obestämd tid, utan att veta när eller var, eller om vi överhuvud taget skulle ses igen kan ha vart en av de svåraste sakerna jag har gjort. Och som om inte avståndet var nog, gör tidskillnad det ännu svårare, nästintill omöjligt, att synka Skypes och fortsätta hålla kontakten.
Att bo, bokstavligt talat, en värld ifrån varandra, suger om jag ska vara helt ärlig, dock gör både Skypesamtal och WhatsApp avståndet mindre. Och oavsett hur lång tid det tar tills vi ses igen, finns det verkligen ingenting jag skulle vilja byta vår vänskap mot.
Leaving New York I also meant leaving my, newly made, best friends . Saying good bye for indefinite time, not knowing where or when we'd meet again, or quite frankly, if we'd ever meet again, might have been one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. And as if the distance wasn't enough, time zones make staying in touch even more difficult.
Living, literally, a world apart, each of us on a different continent, is pretty shit to be honest, but Skype calls and WhatsApp does help to make the distance smaller. No matter how long it may be until we meet again, there's nothing that can even come in comparison to such great friends I've been blessed with, nor everything I learned from meeting so many new people, from so many different countries and cultures. And even if I could, I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.
Hej! Jag, som tänkt börja skriva på denna blogg heter Vera Linn och är 17 år gammal. Jag går just nu gymnasiets andra år på Viktor Rydberg Jarlaplans samhällslinje och jobbar på helgerna som barista på Tully's Coffee.
Till de saker jag älskar hör att resa, filma, läsa, åka skidor och New York, som jag under min månad studerande på Barnard College of Columbia University fick privilegiet att bo i. Detta, och förmodligen en del annat, är vad denna blogg lär komma att handla om. x V
Hello! I, who intend to start writing and blogging on this newly created space on the internet, am Vera Linn and I have managed not to die for a little over 17 years. As of now I'm averagely, half heartedly stumbling through my second year at Viktor Rydberg Jarlaplans Social Science program. On the weekends, however, I'm working as a barista at Tully's Coffee.
My heart belongs to traveling, filmmaking, skiing and New York, of which I've had the privilege of living in during a month spent studying at Barnard College of Columbia University. And this, is what I mean to make this space about. x V
