Fashion

Adi and I were meant to go to lunch after I finished work today, but we ended up just not enjoying the places we visited or it was too busy so we just headed to the shops bought different ingredients and made enchiladas at home instead. Its nice to be home on a Sunday evening so I can get things done, cook my meals and get myself ready for another very busy week.

Its been interesting working at 'normal' daytime job where I have more time in the evenings, I find that I make a lot more plans when that is the case because I feel like I have time to spare in my day but I don't get the weekends to rest so that is probably what makes it so much more tiring. All I keep thinking is about how much content I could get done if I had 2 free days every week with light included, I managed to get some outfit pictures even in the 3 hours of light I had free.

It has been snowing all day, a non stop not completely settling snow which would be nice if I wasn't craving the sun now. Today I have been wearing my favourite second hand jacket that was given to me from my mother, my second hand hat and then a cute turtle neck and tight skirt that were both gifts from different people. I am a big fan of this simple yet stylish outfit, its warm with a pair of tights (I also have an extra pair of long socks on top) and then the usual wrap up winter attire of hat, scarf and gloves.

What do you think of the outfit? I have been thinking more about how many pictures I want to share with you and if I want to add writing to every picture, but personally I like reading the text and then scrolling through the images so thats what I will be doing more of too.

I have been learning so much recently with blogging every day, it has allowed me to see what posts people read the most and what makes people react. I have had the chance to increase my reading count and work with my Instagram to create more content and create a more interesting and ascetically pleasing page. I would love to have your feedback on what you enjoy the most and any advise or ideas on what you would like to see more of.

These pictures were taken at Centralbadet in Stockholm, it is one of the larger spas in the city that has a cute little eco cafe in the back. It wasn't something for me as I wanted a larger meal but if I every want a smoothie and raw cake then this is the perfect please to go. With the Swedish colourful buildings that I am a big fan of, it was a great place to take pictures and find a nice small haven inside the middle of the city. I remember in Sydney I visited a small Chinese garden in the middle of the city called the friendship garden. It was a beautiful place where you felt like you had escaped to a new place, these are the times where I feel at peace and calm when I am surrounded by nature and feel like I have been transported to a new world.

I hope you like the pictures, I will hopefully have a lot more exciting content and a new idea that I am going to try create this week. I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend and enjoy the pictures!

Conservation

Today I started the day off with Adi’s family, there are two new additions to the family, a 4 month old puppy and a 2 month old baby, both super adorable and cuddly and so so wanted. Baby fever is running high right now, although it is not happening yet (don’t worry mum) but its always an extra though when seeing other people’s babies and puppies because I think they are almost just as much commitment as a child.

Which do I suit better?

The baby question is still a little further away in my life, I want to study or start working a good job so that I can be more settled, having good savings and then be mentally ready to have a child. I have been working a lot with children recently and it has got me thinking about what I want to teach my children, what principles I want them to have and how I want them to treat others and the environment. When I was little I used to get really upset when people would throw their trash on the ground (It is still one of my biggest hates and I do point it out to people) but I used to pick up my school friends rubbish and put it in a bin or tell my friends off and make them pick it back up. I am not sure what the reason for me behaving that way is but my parents always taught me to have a loving relationship with the environment. I would often find injured animals and take them home to look after or be very careful not to step on flowers when walking through fields and I think that is one of the main reasons I have such a strong opinion on what we are doing to our environment and want to make a difference.

At the family gathering today one child was celebrating her second birthday, I bought her a little gift of two t-shirts, one said ‘little but fierce’ which is always nice to throw a little Shakespeare culture in and the other said ‘I’m going to change the world’. I thought these were both relevant and perfect to showcase what I think is important to teach our next generations and help them flourish in. I want to teach my children to love all, to be strong, to fight for what they believe in and to think about their actions. I know a lot of people have the same views and if we all implement more sustainable actions into our lives and teach those to our children it will give the next generations a fighting chance to make a difference and help our planet.

I thought I would share this incredible collection of photography images from down in the deep blue sea. It is the Underwater photographers of 2018 for the BBC. It shows some of the most incredible pictures of life down below and for me is the very reason we should do everything we can to save our planet, reduce our waste and save the beautiful animals here! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I would love to know what you want to teach your children and what is important for you?

Today has been a busy day! I had an appointment this morning, work straight after, an after work and now I’m out with some friends to celebrate a birthday. I love and hate days like this, it’s so much fun being busy with lovely things like friends and spending time with my loved ones but I also then dread how tired I’ll be the next day when I have to work, but that’s life and it’s always different, exciting and sometimes stressful!

So as I sit here and eat my noodles in a box I hope you’ve had a great Friday, I have a lot more to update and talk about this weekend when I can finally sit down and get all my thoughts out. Here is a pic of Olivia and I getting ready real slowly before we leave, wearing my cute Glitter earrings and my fav cotton dress this winter!

Tonight after work I went to a great event with my darlings Olivia and @emelieolssons, it has been such a long time since we have just sat together and then gone out and done something fun. I have been so busy that I have neglected how important it is to just sit down with the girls and talk about everything, get silly stuff off your chest and have people who really understand you give you the best advice. I could sit for hours with these two drinking and chatting about everything and nothing at the same time. After a well needed gossip, the girls slowly got ready and we made our way to a food event.

Lets just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful this girl looks, Olivia is stunning as it is but this outfit was just wow. We joked all night how she looks like she could just walk around suing everyone for anything, I am proud to be her friend.

The event itself was about bring fresh, organic food all with the origins of Italy to Stockholm, it was honestly one of the best events with so much different food to try everywhere and a great live band playing. It was a lot of fun and a really smart way to showcase a new restaurant, or in this case a Italian food hall, I know I will be going back there soon to show Adi how awesome it is. I took so many pictures of the yummy food and beautiful building, it is an old theatre that has now been reconstructed, honestly a really incredible building.

I worked all day and then had the event and also have a very very busy day tomorrow so I promise some proper updates and some exciting new content will be up this weekend but until then, enjoy the pictures and I hope you had yummy dinner tonight! I would love to know what your favourite organic food places are and if you find it easy to get to organic food groceries.

The day of love, a time for us all to remember what matters to us most and to most importantly love ourselves. I definitely treated myself this valentines day to having a nice hot bath, eating strawberries and sipping yummy drinks. I am a big fan of holidays and days to celebrate something different, its all about treating yourself or a loved one and doing something new. Today lent also starts, which is terrible if you give up chocolate for lent when its Valentines day. I am not sure how many celebrate lent, we also spoke about it at school but I stopped hearing about the tradition when I moved to Stockholm. If it os something you celebrate or just fancy joining in anyways, a great thing to give up for 40 days is meat or buying plastic, two smaller changes that make a big difference for our planet.

I only have a quick update today as I will be spending my time off social media and with Adi as that is what is important on these days, to get out of virtual reality and live in the now. We are going to watch fantastic beasts and where to find them together and eat sushi.

I hope you like my bath pics, it was the most relaxing and pretty bath I have had in a long time. One of my main goals is to travel the world and try baths in different countries, and I mean big baths by windows or outside, I love it.

What are you all doing to celebrate Valentines day this year? I hope it is nice and that you make sure not to buy too much plastic gifts, or wrapping that will just be thrown away eventually! I got some farm picked flowers wrapped in paper that I can reuse as tissue paper, super sweet. Have a lovely rest of valentines day, you better all be self loving and treating yourselves!
