I forgot to show you the beautiful sunset we had last night. I was sitting in the couch and looked out. Took my cellphone, just because my camera is lying at my place and ran out on my mom’s balcony and took photos. Offcourse my nephew called, who has found the love of photography and said “Emma! HURRY AND GO GET YOUR CAMERA! LOOK AT THE SKY!” a little bit funny. But I knew that I wouldn’t make it home with my lungs to get the camera so my mobile was enough :)
Ok i promised you guys to post the same things as I posted on my swedish blog. Just an hour between but here it comes :)
I put together a small “collage” or what to call it, with the little things I bought, and all I remember when I, my sister and mom were at IKEA. There is still a lot of things missing to bring order in my apartment but but I will a little bit on the way with this. Kallax shelf, I bought for 995SEK and a few weeks before, I had bought an identical on Facebook for 250SEK. How crazy is that? So now, in the living room, there will be two shelves x 16 compartments. By Lekman boxes I bought white and a total of four. Lights “Sinnlig” I bought five, I think. I burn candles so it stands out through my ears. I always have candles lit every evening. Though I sit in front of the TV and watching. Must have light running or else I’ll go crazy. And besides, they’re orange, which I buy all the time smelling so amazingly good! They smell Orange. Admittedly, I hate scented candles just because I get such an unbelievable headache of them but these actually goes well :)
The Spiceshelfs, I’ll do a little expriment with. First, they will be painted and cleaned up before they go up on the wall. Exciting exciting! Little diy feeling all over it. Love that!
I also bought some hooks, steel pipe “hanger” I’ll put up the kitchen to remove things from countertops and sink. Will show the picture of the whole thing later when everything is ready! It scratched fingers to be able to continue to do in order but can not, because I have no energy, thanks to pneumonia!
Celebrateing Halloween isn’t that common in Sweden. Sure the adults dress up in costumes and party all night long but the kids dresses up and go and go trick or treating. I have seen that in AAmerica, the kids tend to throw eggs and toilettpaper etc as a trick but in Sweden that tradition hasn’t come yet. At least not where I live. On the photo you can see how I did a small amount of makeup on my nephew. A walking zombieskull. His choice. And the girls is my nieces and their friend. I did not do their makeup.
NOTE: I’ve decided to stay here on wordpress but I have a blog on the swedish platform where I’ll be posting the same stuff but on swedish :)
So, now the King has announced the name of the Prince. Nicolas Paul Gustaf will be the Prince’s name. So cute! Nicolas is the main name. Paul is after he’s grandfather and Gustaf after the King of Sweden.
Congratulations to Madeline and Chris to the beautiful baby boy and lovely names you have given him!
A tradition in Sweden when the school is out, well it is a tradition where I live, is to go to church and sing out loud some summer songs that for two months before have practiced in school. All my family has done it, except my brother and one of my big sisters. But me, my sisters M,A and C have done it. But after year 6 in school we do not do this. It’s from 6 years up to 6 grade. Everyone dresses up fancy, almost like they are going to prom (the parents) and the kids have beautiful clothings and look so cute!
the light in the church was horrible! I hate it! I prefer shadow “light” but with these big windows and the sun’s light coming thru the windows makes me crazy! Some kids looks like they are “glowing” and some other kids looks like they are in the dark. i hate it. I wanna have an even light you know. But oh well. I tried my best. Note, The objective I used when I took photos is the obejctive I hate. Yes a lot of hate in this post, but I hate it. I was to far away to use my Canon 50mm so I used a tamron 70-200mm.
On picture 1 (top left) is my youngest niece. Picture 2 (top right) is my niece O’s friend Maja. Picture 3 is my nephew. He had like his aunt half colored hair. But instead of half dark brown and half brown, he had half neon green and half neon pink. Haha! Picture will be under this text. Picture 4 is a photo I took of my niece O and her best friend Maja. O is to the left with the dark dress and polka dots and Maja is to the right with the white dress. The last photo, the big one, is Kajsa. My “little sister”. She and I are born on the same day BUT I turned 18 when I got the textmessage from the mother saying “I did it! I gave birth to your little sister on your birthday! Happy Birthday <3” Yes I remember the textmessage. I cried so much of joy. The mother and I considered us self as sisters but we grew apart from each other but I’m very tight with Kajsa :)
Today it’s Sweden’s National Day / Independence day!
A tradition in Sweden is to sit down with your friends and family and watch the biggest song contest in Europe – Eurovision Song Contest. This year, I was a bit disappointed about the songs and their performance. Sure they did a great job and an amazing work to keep the feelings in the right place BUT the songs was so boring. But with over 300 points, Sweden won this year. Congrats Måns! I’m glad that my home country will represent Eurovision Song Contest 2016.
Yesterday I bought Snapple for the very first time. I don’t know what flavours you guys have but we had Lemon, Mango and Kiwi/Strawberry. I bought the Lemon Snapple because I love sour candy and drinks. And I gotta say, as much as I like sour stuff, I really didn’t like this one. It had a funny and horrible taste. Next time I’ll try the other two. Even tho I don’t like the content I still have the cute bottle!
1. I believe in mermaids (Lol yes I do, don’t hate ;) )
