Be mine.

Valentine’s Day in a week now! I do not have a man but that certainly does not stop me from wishing for some sweet gifts. There must be someone that loves me out there? Ha. Pink positive! I would not mind receiving any of the Kusmi Tea metal tins above, Sweet Love, Bouquet de Fleurs or, why not spice it up a little with Anastasia – that one would be perfect for a Grey day! A bunch of flowers is always nice, too. Consider this, consider this, the hint of the century…

The reasons I write in English.

So, I thought I would finally answer this question. The reasons I write in English (most of the time) are mainly to improve my English skills and to challenge myself, not because I have a large number of international blog readers – yet! Nevertheless, I do have a few readers abroad. Google Analytics has given me the top countries which right now are (Sweden excluded): US, Russia, UK, Bahamas, Germany, Belgium, Canada, China… I definitely intend to stick with the English, although I undoubtedly will publish Swedish posts every now and then, too. Stay tuned!

Loving would be easy if your colours were like my dreams.

I am completely and utterly in love with these two colours, and the fact that they go so well together! Besides, I occasionally put orange/Sienna coloured eye shadow on my lids to make my blue eyes pop! What do you think? Do you like these colours combined? What is your favourite colour, and why?

In London everyone is different, and that means, everyone can fit in.

I may not always be in London, but London is always with me. It was simply impossible to resist buying this Victorian Maps candle a while ago. London is my favourite place on earth due to the diverse and friendly people, splendid architecture and a delightful atmosphere. I know I will end up there. One day. Somehow. Soon.

I just can’t get you out of my head.

Good evening folks! Currently sweating my ass of at the 24/7 gym in Västra Hamnen (West Harbour) here in Malmö, right next to my new job at the grocery shop – Maxi ICA Stormarknad. The main reason I’m writing this right now is because I’m playing good old Kylie Minogue songs as we “speak”. I’ve grown up with her music since my dad loves her. When I was about 5 years old I used to watch the VHS we had with her music videos… Anyway, many of her tracks are actually really good here at the gym and for the walk home later!

Destination Christmas.

I’ve been longing for the Christmas season for quite some time now, and it’s finally here! I love to get in the mood with Christmas songs, films and not least – adverts (I’m sure you can tell by now)! Here’s a cute one from Heathrow Airport that I recently found. British adverts are beyond compare. The majority of the Christmas adverts I’ve seen and shared with you, I would be delighted to see as full-length feature films. There are several brilliant narratives with great messages, not to mention the various remarkable characters!

Christmas with love from Mrs Claus makes me realise what truly makes me happy – my siblings. Their happiness. I wish I could give them everything they ever wanted, but most importantly, I wish I could be with them and share the joy. I really appreciate all the time I get to spend with them (which, unfortunately, is not too often). It doesn’t matter if we just talk over the phone or if we only meet a few minutes to say hello; each and every moment is precious.

Can’t wrap this!

Christmas – the most wonderful time of the year – unless you’re a Hamleys employee and have to wrap teddy bears and other toys that are ‘mission impossible’ ha-ha! Today it is three years ago I started working as a Christmas employee at Hamleys (The Finest Toy Shop in the World) in Malmö. Undoubtedly a festive season and a very merry time of my life!

If only there was a way to be in two places at once.

Breaking news, Sainsbury’s Christmas advert this year is, in my opinion, way better than John Lewis’s. Sainsbury’s The Greatest Gift is very captivating and contemporary. I can easily relate to: “I don’t have time, there’s only one of me”. Watch it!

It’s worth peeking at John Lewis’s Christmas advert too, it’s just that I expected something more sentimental in line with previous years. Buster The Boxer is, regardless, very sweet!

Last but not least, another wonderful Christmas/winter story worth sharing! The excellent moral of the tale: “Make time for what you love”.

5 signs I am a true Londoner.

1. The idea of walking through Piccadilly Circus feels slightly less preferable than walking through Mordor.

2. You become FURIOUS when you get an escalator in another city and everyone stands on both sides.

3. You know which ‘No entry’ signs in tube stations to ignore in order to enjoy a cheeky shortcut to the platform.

4. You find the sound of sirens comforting. Silence is unnerving, and anyway, at least it means the police are doing their job.

5. You are a pro at walking; in heels, whilst eating a sandwich, texting, Instagramming, holding an umbrella AND not touching anyone. Olympic skills right there.

You turned your back on tomorrow ’cause you forgot yesterday.

I am looking for a man who likes me for me. An individual who does not solely appreciate my appearance, but primarily my personality; my integrity, my sense of humour (at times the lack of it, ha) and a range of other qualities. I want to be with someone who thinks I am beautiful although I hate my nose, a guy who knows I am sensible even though I do not always make the right decisions and last but not least, a friend to hold my hand. If this gentleman is out there, I would be delighted to hear from you!
