H&M Divided, leggings stulna fran Malin, stovlarna ar ocksa Malins fran nagon
liten chic butik i Vindeln, vaskan ar samma som alltid, jackan kommer fran H&M

Translation:
We still haven't got the internet to work in our flat, so right now I'm using Coffe Angels
connection while drinking a refreshing Firefly. Waiting for Pete to finish so we can walk
home together. Malin is hanging out with her grandparents who are going back to Sweden
tomorrow, so the flat is kind of empty, buhu. Anyways, this is how I look today, cool huh.

I'm wearing:
Stripy top thing from Indiska, mini skirt from H&M Divided, the bag is new vintage,
i bought the jacket at H&M Divided & the boots are Malins, think she got them in
some chic little butique in Vindeln, Sweden.

happy birthday to vishal


malin & helena at the reserved table at siglo (talk about vip) - florian, lynette & neha by the bar.

malin, me & gabor were trying to look our cutest - and here we have a very tipsy em, ooops.

the competition ''who can look cooler'', vote for your favorite - is it vladimir, jan, neha & flower?

like there's no tomorrow



For nagra dagar sedan tog jag & Malin oss en promenad ner till Ocean Terminal for
lite shopping & lunch. Meningen var att vi skulle hitta nagot att ha pa oss pa Vishal's
fodelsedagsfest kvallen efter, men det misslyckades. Gick vilse gjorde vi ocksa, men
eftersom solen sken gjorde det inte sa mycket. Leith Shore ar sa fint!

Jag har pa mig:
Skorna ar runt tva ar gamla & kopta pa Skopunkten, jag stal mina leggins fran Malin,
kavajen kommer fran H&M Divided, klanningen ar ocksa Malins, inkopt pa H&M,
min finfina vaska ar new vintage & sjalen kommer fran en liten shop pa Nicholson Street.


Translation:
A few days ago Malin & I took a walk down to Ocean Terminal for some shopping.
Of course we got lost on the way, but since the sun was shining it didn't really matter.
I'm in love with Leith Shore, it's so pretty!

I'm wearing:
Shoes from Skopunkten, the dress is from H&M and so is the jacket, the scarf is
from a small shop at Nicholson Street & my bag is new vintage.

on the sunny side of the street


                      

Hej hej!
Hoppas ni har det bra allihopa, jag har det sjalv super sa det vore ju trakigt
om ni hade det samre. Malin har nu fatt packat upp alla vaskor & sadar, tror
hon borjar komma till ratta i lagenheten. Ar ganska trott efter en dag fylld av
arenden & springande hit & dit med Pete, sa har kommer bara en snabb
uppdatering av mandagens outfits. Woho.

Malin har pa sig:
Jeans fran Gina Tricot, Linne fran Vila, Kofta fran Gina Tricot, vaskan ar kopt
pa Primark, skorna ar converse, jackan kommer fran H&M's barnavdelning &
halsduken vet jag faktiskt inte vart den kommer fran, men snygg ar den!

Jag har pa mig:
Jeans fran H&M's barnavdelning, skor fran Fred Perry, Koftan ar Only, sjalen ar
Malins mormors (eller, den ar stulen darifran i alla fall, hehe) & skjortan ar Malins,
jag far inte lov att saga varifran den ar kopt - det ar superhemligt! Oh, & vaskan ar
new vintage.


Translation:
I think Malin is starting to settle down now, she has finished unpacking & stuff.
I'm really tired after a long day of running errands & shopping with Pete so I'm just
making a quick update of our outfits we wore on monday. Coolio!

buttons, so many buttons



Jag skrattade sa jag nastan kissade pa mig igar - jag, Malin & Pete gick for
att se One Night Stand, en musikal med ett nytt, improviserat manus varje kvall.
Rescensionerna har varit tipptopp for den showen hela manaden, men man vet
ju aldrig med improvisation - det ar aldrig garanterat att bli super. Om man bortser
fran gruppen One Night Stand, jag undrar om dom nagonsin gjort ett daligt framtradande.

Publiken fick bestamma namnet pa musikalen, ''a starting location'' & namnet pa en lat
som var tvungen att vara med nagonstans i handlingen. Detta blev ''Mary Poppings & the
Chocolate Factory of Doom'', ''an ice castle in Norway'' & ''buttons, so many buttons''.

Arligt talat, jag tror detta ar bland det basta jag nagonsin sett i hela mitt liv,
far ni chansen, ta den & ga & se One Night Stand. Det ar vart varenda ore!


Translation:

The show yesterday was amazing, I laughed so hard I thought I would wet my jeans.
I know that the Fringe Festival is over for this year, but if you guys get the chance to
see One Night Stand somewhere else, don't hesitate, take it - it's worth every penny!

i kissed a girl and i liked it

Heyo!

Efter en lang lunch bestaende av specialgjord sallad med getost & oliver & sedan
en halv tekanna avslappnande fruktte har vi nu antligen kommit hem, Malin & jag.
Har naturligtvis redan gatt igenom hennes resvaskor & snappat at mig alla snygga
plagg, scarfs & skor - mohaha. Nu har den lilla froken loken hoppat in i duschen &
jag tar igen mig nagra minuter innan det ar dags att borja gora sig i ordning.
Pete kommer hem vid 8pm & da ar det bara att kasta sig pa bussen till biljettkontoret
for att hamta ut vara biljetter till ''One Night Stand'', en musikal dar nytt manus
improviseras fram varje kvall. Ska bli superroligt! Pete har lovat att laga sen middag
nar vi kommer hem ocksa, han ar den basta kocken ever.


Translation:

We're finally home now, Malin and I. Took her to Coffe Angel for a very long, but relaxing
lunch. The manager was nice enough to make us salads even though they don't normally
serve it & then we finished it off with a pot of fruit tea each. Time to start to get ready for
going out now, Pete will be home around 8pm & then we have to rush to the box office to
collect our tickets for ''One Night Stand'' - a musical with a new, improvised script.
Gonna be superfun! Gotta go.


and i don't ever wanna say goodbye

Nu ar jag pakladd, frukostaten, lite halvfixad & valdigt, valdigt uppspelt!
Ska sticka ner & ta bussen in till stan for att mota min baby Malin som
kommer fran Edinburgh's flygplats. Ska ta med henne till Coffe Angel,
dar Pete numera jobbar, & ata lunch, sedan blir det hem till lagenheten,
lite softish & sa ska vi ga pa en improvisationsmusikal ikvall. Weeeii.

Nu maste jag rusa!


Translation:

In a hurry, taking the bus up to Princes Street to meet Malin at the bus stop.
She's arriving from Edinburgh airport. Going to take her to Coffee Angel for
some lunch, then to the flat & tonight we're going to see a show at the festival.

Have to run!

i've had choices



the sea | a lake
strawberry | rasberry
big city | country side
dress | skirt
boyfriend | date
morning | night

guitar | piano
flats | high heels

For ett tag sedan var jag inne & rotade i reahogarna pa River Island, min favoritaffar -
visst gar det att hitta manga, fina fynd! Klanningen pa forsta bilden var bara perfektion;
tredubbla lager chiffong med snorning runt hoften & runda, guldnitar over hela skapelsen.
Ni ma tro att det kliade i spenderarfingrarna kan jag lova, den var nedsatt fran £85 till £30.
Den grona lilla bomullssaken gjorde sig inte sarskilt bra pa bild, men var supersot i verkligheten.
Gick pa ca £10. Eder Em var dock jatteduktig & hangde tillbaka bada tva - den som spar
hon har (typ, pengar till allt utom fina klanningar, buhu).


Translation:

It was a while ago, but I found these pretty dresses at the sale of River Island. The first
one is just pure perfection, down from £85 to £30 & the second one cost about a tenner.
I was a very good tho (or stupid, depending on how you see it) & left both of them in the store.
Well done, Em, well done.

because it's snow

Hej!

Hoppas ni mar bra allihopa, sjalv har jag precis aterhamtat mig efter varldens
baksmalla som varade i tva dagar. Jag, Katie & Pete drog till Cabaret Voltaire
i torsdags & trots att jag knappt drack nagonting alls madde jag apa dagen efter.
Kande mig lite schizo & fick for mig att nagon smog i nagot i min drink, men jag
vet till 100% att jag inte lamnade den obevakad pa hela kvallen. Hm.

Anyways, nu mar jag prima ballerina igen. Dagen har dock inte agnats at nagot
speciellt roligt - har stadat & packat upp mina sista vaskor med grejor.
Imorgon flyttar Malin in, kan knappt barga mig! Jag & Katie ska mota henne vid
bussen efter lunch, ska bli sa roligt att ha henne har. Antligen, min bastaste!

Appropa Malin sa ar det forresten sa typiskt - hon ville sa garna prata igenom lite
saker innan hon akte fran Umea, men internet lade av i forrgar & har inte funkat
alls (jag har kollat typ tjugo ganger om dagen) forran nu, men nu ar hon saklart
i Stockholm - sovandes antagligen. Dumma tajming & dumma internet.

Iiih, men nu ar det snart imorgon! Eller, det ar val imorgon redan, tekniskt sett,
men jag menar - ah, whatever - snart ar Malin har! Yey!


Translation:

After two days of the worst hangover ever, I'm back! Katie came over on thursday night
for some chick flicks & gossip & we ended up going out. We met up with Pete at Cabaret
Voltaire & even though I didn't drink nearly as much as I use to I got kind of...eh, tipsy.
Suspected someone put something dodgy in my drink, but then again I never left it out
of my sight during the whole night. Oh well, now I'm well again so...

Malin's moving in with us tomorrow which will be mucho fun, I've been looking forward
to it for months and now it's finally happening! Can't believe it! Katie and I are going to
pick her up at the Waverley Bridge tomorrow after lunch, I'm so excited!


the festival goes round and round


                                  
This is an old outfit, worn maybe 2-3 weeks ago, but since I don't have anything better to do
I thougt I might just publish it anyway. Writing in two languages will make this post way too long
so I'll just post this in english, hopefully that is the most fair thing to do.

Dress: The dress comes from my webshop Kiss Me Kate & Vintage & is one of my absolute
favorites at the moment. I love the fact that I can match it with anything & wear it as a dress,
a top or a high-waisted skirt with a tee tucked in. It's so pretty & everywere I go people ask
where I bought it from. That we like, haha!

Jeans: I live in those jeans right now, love them. Pete got them for me from H&M's children
since I can't wear my old jeans anymore. I've gained many kilos during the last 6 months &
none of my old jeans fits me anymore. Anyways, these are a bit stretchy and SO comfy.
Love the pirce as well - £11.98 - bargain!

Flats: Back in...when was it, 2006? I think so - i bought these gray pair of pointy flats from
the Swedish shop Wedins 5 minutes before closing. I was going to a party with a friend &
didn't have anything to wear & my shoes didn't go with the new outfit i just bought. So, I
purchased these darlings - they were far too expensive, but, even though well worn they're
still going strong.

Cardigan: The cardigan was purchased from H&M Divided in early spring this year.
It's a favorite as it can be worn in many, different, exciting ways. As always when it comes
to H&M the price is the best of everything - £9.

Belt: One of my many vintage findings. Cost me 1SEK (appr. 8 pence).

Bag:
Found this pretty, pretty shoulder bag in a vintage shop in Edinburgh,
though it is not really vintage. Anyways, cost me about a fiver & it is my favorite bag ever.
Goes with anything at anytime, anywhere. Me likey.

erin wasson x rvca.



Jag kan knappt vanta till varen 2009 da RVCA kommer lansera en kollektion designad av Erin
Wasson. For er som inte vet vem Erin ar kan jag tala om att hon ar en av USA's storsta upcoming
modeller, hon ar bland annat ansikte for Maybellinne. Hon ar ocksa kand for sin ''effortless sense
of style'' - tank er en blandning mellan Lisa & Almah.


Translation:

Can't wait till S/09 when RVCA is releasing their Erin Wasson designed street wear collection.
I bet there will be lots and lots of to-die-for pieces to pick up. If you didn't know already, Erin
is the face of Maybellinne, as well as one of USA's most respected and admired models.

so sing me a lullaby

God morgon (snart eftermiddag, men jag somnade inte forran 6 i morse)!

Gissa vem som sprinklade cayennepeppar over sin musli istallet for kanel
- right atcha, jag. Jag at dessutom ungefar halva portionen musli innan jag
upptackte att det smakade konstigt & ganska starkt. Ar ganska tung i huvudet
idag, vilket kanske inte ar sa konstigt. Det har maste fa ett slut!


Translation:

Morning (technically afternoon very soon, but i fell asleep around 6am)!

I had eaten about half of the muesli in my breakfast bowl when I realized
I had sprinkled cayenne pepper over it instead of cinnamon. I think this
can't-sleep-thing has to stop, my head is getting ridiculously heavy.

Em testar: aussie shampoo & conditioner.



| Produkt: Aussie Colormate Shampoo & Conditioner | Pris: ca £4/styck | Finns hos: Superdrug |

Beskrivning:
Pa flaskan star det foljande ''Our pH-balanced formula with Australian Wild Peach
gently conditions and protects coloured and permed hair, restoring health and shine.''

Domen: Efter att ha anvant bade shampo och balsam ca tre till fyra ganger i veckan
i tva veckor har jag redan markt ett otroligt resultat. Haret kanns mycket starkare, fullt
av volym och det glanser som attans, ser ut som att jag har varit hos frisoren varje gang
jag tvattat haret. Eftersom jag har fargat har anvander jag colormate, som ar till for att
skydda och bevara toningen/fargningen. Normalt sett brukar jag fa farga om haret i alla fall
en gang i manaden, vilket inte ar sa bra for mina stackars stran - men med colormate
har jag inte forlorat nagon farg alls! Den underbara doften av persika och kokos
(star inte att det ska lukta det, men jag tycker att doften paminner om kokosflingor) ar ett stort
plus, alla fragar vad jag anvander for shampo eftersom det luktar sa gott.

Betyg: 4 av 5. Jag tycker priset ar lite val saftigt for att vara budgetshampo = minus.

i'm just a teenage dirtbag baby


       

what i am to you is not real

Sitter ihopkurad under tacket i sangen & filurar over livet & sant dar.
Den senaste manaden har jag haft massiva problem med somnen, vaknar upp flera
ganger varje natt, drommer mardrommar, vaknar supertidigt pa morgonen men kan
anda inte somna forran langt efter midnatt. Brukade tampas med samma problem
nar jag gick i skolan & allt bara var for mycket, for jobbigt & for hemskt, men hur jag
madde da ar langt ifran hur jag mar nu. Vet inte vad som ar fel. Har testat somnpiller
fran halsokosten, men de funkar inte alls. Nagon som har nagra tips & trix, jag vill
helst undvika superstarka lakarpiller, ar lite fjantig nar det kommer till sadant.


Translation:

Sitting in my bed, without any hint of the goodnight fairy coming for a visit.
I've had major sleeping issues during the last month; i wake up
several times every night, having loads of horrible nightmares and so on.
Does anyone have any tip of what might get me to sleeping valley?
I've tried some sleeping pills made only from natural ingredients, but that didn't
help at all. Don't really want to get proper sleeping pills from my PG either though,
so just, old grandmother-knows-how-to-cure-everything-tips would be very much
appreciated. Thanks guys!
