Music in my headphones. Pasta for lunch. Airport atmosphere. Stressed out parents. Cheap chocolate. It’s snowing outside.

Social media is amazing but so controversial. I love it and I hate it. Thru social media I gain new information, I get a broader perspective and I meet new people. At the same time ,it can be a negatively loaded with hate comments, threats and people fighting with each other. Because of social media, it is easier to say what you really think and believe without really understanding how many you are reaching out to. I feel like when you are dealing with social media you should always walk on your tippy toes. On the other hand, it's a great source to express your own opinions and feelings so why no be completely unfiltered? That's one thing I love about it. There are people who are more shallow and there are people who are completely unfiltered and show everything. Because there are so many using social media you can create your own bubble and decide what information you want to take in. Creating your own bubble is partly a bad thing. When you start living in this one-sided bubble and don't follow people with different opinions, come from a different culture and are completely different from you end up being kind of bias. That's why I at least try to find different types of people on social media and I follow different types of blogs and Instagram profiles.

Social media is extremely addicting too, why is that? Why is it so addicting to watch someone's Snapchat story or scroll down an Instagram stream and not really looking at the picture when you could talk to the people around you? Why do your fingertips itch if you can't touch your phone in 24h or why do you get so frustrated when you don't have wifi? Is it really that important to find out what Kylie Jenner posted on Snapchat or what Rihanna tweeted? The answer is no. But still, it is comforting to hold your phone in your hand and know that the social media apps are filled with new information and people you can talk to. Due to social media, we have become obsessed with this idea of knowing everything of what is happening in people's lives and in the world. We always have to have the latest scoop on what all the celebrities are doing and what the newest Instagram food trend is.

I don't find this healthy. I want to reduce my social media usage and let people post whatever they want whenever they want and still keep their personal lives private. Social media should be something fun, something interactive and a mainly a creative platform. It shouldn't be your whole life and you shouldn't have to feel the urge to rush to your phone when you haven't checked Instagram or Twitter in a while.

I want to end this post by sharing my favorite people on different social media platforms and I would love to hear yours too to get some new inspiration!

DIARY

I have never celebrated valentine's day in any way, partly because I have never been in a relationship and partly because I don't really understand the concept of it. Why do I need a special day to celebrate my friendship/relationship? I have the most awesome friends in the world and I feel like they deserve to know that more often than once a year. I should also be able to lie on my bed, watch Netflix and eat a whole box of chocolate whenever I feel like it just because I can and not because I am sad that I am single. I am a strong independent woman as my friend and I say, mostly because it is an inside joke but also because it's an important phrase to remember in your everyday.

After school, Julia and I decided to grab a coffee (for the sake of Valentine's Day and in the hope for a free coffee because of it). We always go to this cafe called LaTorrefazione and we always have the same order. Julia orders a double cappuccino and parma ciabatta without tomatoes and I a blackcurrant smoothie with coconut milk instead of yogurt. Every, single, time. I wonder how they don't recognize us there yet? Oh, and we didn't get a free coffee, unfortunately.

She was mad because I was photographing so much lol.

Sleep well. Hugs.

Good morning! I am utterly excited for this upcoming week and I will not one negative thing affect me. Here's a list of what is happening this week in my life.

What I am craving this week: A good chickpea curry (maybe this one?), a big cosy hug and a burning leg workout.

This weeks traveling: We are flying to Austria with my family on Saturday and I couldn't be more excited.

What I am reading this week: Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and Den första stenen by Carsten Jensen.

What I am listening to this week: Hmm, let me think. I have been loving Marshmellow's and Anne-Marie's collab FRIENDS and Cherry Wine by Hozier (the bird chirping in the background YES PLEASE).

This weeks blog posts: I really want to write a post on my favourite breakfasts and what I think of social media.

My instagram tips: My current favourite instagram accounts are @vanillandbliss and @kajsasven. So fresh, realistic and aesthetically pleasing!

DIARY

Hello! This day has been absolutely awesome. I haven't done anything marvellous but this day is proof of the fact that you don't have to do something extraordinary to have a good day. The small things in life are the most important. What did make this day great you may wonder. Well, let me tell you. The food, the people, the music, the weather, my mood. When I woke up today I decided not to do anything that makes my mind heavy and it made a difference. I cleaned the apartment (yes, I find cleaning therapeutic), I went on a walk with Julia and her two dogs (cutest creatures alive) and I made sushi with my mum for the first time. I also got some Valentine's Day flowers from my best friend, which now sit on my window sill and enlighten my room and mood <3. In addition, I have been loving my spotify playlists lately and been listening constantly to them (you can find my February playlist here). This evening I will spend reading and tomorrow I will be working all day.

I hope you had a wonderful Saturday. Hugs.
