It's so nice to go up a bit earlier than normal and actually have time to do things before I go to work. Today I did some Swedish pancakes for lunch which I ate while I was reading Elle and listening to music.
I've been so bad at using cleansing products lately. Since you only need water to remove Fiberwig that has been everything I've used. When I went shopping last time I bought cleansing gel, skin toner and some other makeup.
I like this kind of lipstick. It's like a marker, it stays on for really, really long and you don't feel it on your lips. I bought one like that in Minnesota. The only problem: I dropped it in the toilet, ha ha. Now I finally found a similar one in Sweden but it's so much more expensive. I think I payed 2 dollars in the States and 20 dollars here :/
Oh no, she didn't! I did something that I always end up regretting a couple of days afterwards. What could it be? ;)
I went to the city to buy some Japanese magazines at this really small Japan shop. It was so cute. I will show you better pictures of the magazines later. I also went to a store called Beyond Retro (bottom left) which sells second hand clothes. I've heard so many good things about it but it was not my style, and there was also this weird smell in there. I bought lots of stuff from other places instead.
It was a bit funny, because after I took the bottom right picture I walked by a camera team that was doing interviews. I didn't think about it so much until later when my mum called and told me that she had seen me on national tv ha ha. Se recognized me because of my pink clothes ;D
While I was shopping I checked my blog and then I saw that Jinni had asked me if I wanted to go for a coffee with her. Of course I said yes and it was so fun to meet her (for the first time). We went to Espresso house and we both tried their cupcakes.
It's so fun to meet other bloggers. I wish I could go and see you all. If any of you ever come to Sweden you must tell me!
I tried that blue jacket in the Helly Hansen store. I looove their clothes but I decided not to buy it. On my way home the trains didn't go because of an accident so I had to walk to the subway, and I was so hungry that I bought some not so healthy snack on the way.
Yesterday I went back to the stable to ride again. It was a great day for doing that but it was really muddy and my short chaps doesn't exactly look like new any more ;) It's nice to leave the city life every now and then and it's so cozy to be there at the ranch. On my way to the train I saw a cute cat. It was just laying there sunbathing!
It's so warm in Stockholm now, considering that it's only March. I guess I'm just not used to the heat at this time of the year. I'm planning to fly home soon and there it's still two metres of snow and winter. It will be weird to go from "summer" to the ski slopes.
It would be fun to know, since I have readers from all over the world, what kind of weather it is right now where you are?
I have so many exciting pictures that I will publish in the comming posts. I bought way too many cute things yesterday:) And now I'm off to the stable again. Life is good.
1. I used my new purse, that I bought at the store New Yorker, for the first time. Since I don't go clubbing these days I could as well use it for work. It's a bit funny eating breakfast at 5.00PM by the way;)
3. I'm glad my hair is getting longer and longer. I'm going to try to not cut it for at least a while (except the ends of course).
4. I used to be a BIG fan of the Swedish alpine skier Anja Pärson. She decided to end her career last week and then the newspaper I work for made this to honor her. I took a copy from work to save as a memory of her (it says: "Thank you for everything"). She was one of the best skiers in the world for many years.
5. You know that I love magazines but honestly, I think most of them are just crap. If you have read one you have read them all. Elle is actually one of the best I know even though I'm not that into fashion. It's also really well written, which is good since I proofread everything automatically because of my profession.
I was called out to work today since the paper was in urgent need of newsdesigners. Because of that I didn't have time to make a blog post and now I'm blogging from my phone. What do you think about that? More "on-the-go-posts"? :)
It's a bit funny only working nights. Right now it's six in the morning and I've been up all night. After I have posted this I'll better go to bed. I'm working for one more day and then I'm off for a while again. I sure have a great schedule. This month I have 17 days off! Crazy. How come I still don't have time to do everything I want to? :)
I didn't have anything yellow so I bought this sweatshirt :)
...and some other basic stuff.
Random mobile pictures:
I went to see "my hockey team" from the north of Sweden play in Stockholm. They won the conference but they lost this game:/
They've had Vitamin water in Sweden for a while now. I don't know why I keep buying it because I don't think it's healthy at all. A funny tag though. The bottom pictures are from work, and my computer there. You can't see it so good, but the screen is huge since I work as a newsdesigner.
The last design looked like crap on some computers so I decided to remake the whole blog. I hope you like it. It suits good since this is my 400th post, but in reality I've done so many more than that since I deleted at least half of them or even more a while ago.
I slept for too long today since I stayed up all night to do the design. I'll just leave you of three pics of me with my Nike jacket that I haven't told you about. I wont be able to wear it for so much longer though, as the weather is getting better.
It's hard to catch the color on pictures:/
I alway listen to music when I'm going in the subway or on the bus. People in Stockholm are so annoying on places where it's crowded. I'm glad I'm able to shut them off in a way :)
It's really getting spring here in Stockholm now. For me that is really weird. I'm used to having two metres of snow outside at this time of the year, since that is what it's like in the north of Sweden.
It was pretty warm yesterday and I went out to go horseback riding again. This time I had a private lesson, which was good since I have forgotten a lot since I stopped riding eight years ago. I really like the stable I'm going to now, they're so friendly there. The only bad thing is that it takes two hours to go there.
Since it was so sunny I used ny new sunglasses. This time pink ones (no way;), which I didn't have last year.
