The Last Day of The Year

Image
Hi everyone! How are you? I am good. Just taking a break from my two hours of watching Jane The Virgin on Netflix. It's my new show. At frist it didn't seem that good, but when you're like five episodes deep you kind of just can't stop watching. You NEED to know what happens next. It's like that show my mom and I used to watch. Some Australian soap opera. I think it was called Home and Away. That show is so terrible and when they swapped actors for one part OMG, never seen anything more worse! They didn't even slightly look like each other! Not even slightly! Ugh! But there so much drama going on that you just keep on watching because you need to know what happens next.

I really just wanted to show you the amazing things that I bought at ZARA yesterday. It's funny thought thatI went shopping and nothing that I bought was on sale. But none of what I wanted was on sale. So yeah. Anyways I bought a jacket and a pair of pants. I need new pants because 1) I alwa…

Winter Fashionista

Image
Hello! I went shopping today before work. Or, yeah I mean there was this scarf that I wanted so I just swung by H&M to see if they still had any. And they did so I bought one. I love it! I need something warmer now the it is winter. My regular orange scarf (which is also from H&M) won't keep my neck warm during the winter. Plus it is too summerish. I saw a really nice scarf a while back at Lindex but when I wanted to buy it it was gone *sad face*. Yeah yeah I know. But now I have this gorgeous thing this winter. Now I just have to get mittens and a had that goes with it. Until then I will keep rocking my regular black mittens. But you know gotta keep it fashionable and represent even though it's winter.

A Little Beauty Secret

Hi! So I just thought that I would tell you about a little beauty thing that I recently started doing to my hair. As you have noticed in pictures that I have posted that my hair is very thick. I mean it's an afro. It's just that I never wear my hear like that. I usually braid it or put it up in a bun (happens very rarely). My hair is also very dry, or it used to be until I started doing this magical thing. Since my hair was so dry I need/ wanted something that would make it more soft. I heard about olive oil as hair mask and I have tried it. So thought why not use it in my hair daily and see what happens? First I googled just to see what the internet had to say about it. The internet had mixed opinions so I decided to try it. My conclusion is that, for me and my hair it has absolutely done wonders. It is way more soft and it has become shiny. I recommend you to try it... unless you have blonde hair. The internet said that your hair might become a little green. Idk, but the int…

I Am Getting Certified

Image
OMG! Hi! So now I am done for the day! I can now allow myself to chill (I just have to write this post first). I went to work today, then when I came home I had to eat because you know you need food and I was damn hungry. I also did some laundry and was productive towards my future. It was good day. Any day where you're productive day is a good day. All you can do is your best. If you put in 100% how can the result not end up great?! Huh, right? Anyway, so yeah.

I am really excited though because at the end of next month I am finally going to become a certified barista. I will get a diploma and everything. I feel like I have to study for that though. About coffee and such. I mean I know how to make the usuals. You know like cafe latte, cappuccino, cortado, espresso and all of those things. But there are some coffee's that I am not really familiar with. I have to study up on those. I might be asked about them. I hope I pass. But of course I will. If I was that bad of a barista …

So, This Is Christmas....

Hi everyone! So it's Christmas Day. In Sweden we celebrate Christmas on the 24th so I've already done the whole Christmas dinner and opening presents thing. It was nice. It was nice and calm day. It was just my mom and I and the dogs. But it was good. I messed around with Sam. I got him and Merlin some toys for Christmas, but it was mostly Sam who played with them. We had a lot of fun and he tried to eat me. He's so cute! Unfortunately I don't have any pictures or videos of Sam or Merlin. I posted some on snapchat but I didn't save any of them. I should have.

It is weird though because I love Christmas. It is my favorite holiday! But this years I haven't had that much Christmas feeling. I have barely listened to any Christmas songs. I still haven't heard Ariana's new Christmas EP. Maybe I subconsciously got too much of Christmas music at work. Maybe I subconsciously got enough of Christmas at work since the Christmas campaign started in mid November. I …

Happy Early Christmas

Image
Hi! Happy day before Christmas Eve! What is everyone doing tonight? My mom is at my place for Christmas so right now we are playing bingolotto. No luck so far. But we both have been very close. We are going to play all night so hopefully we'll win something. That would be really cool! I used to play bingolotto a lot more when I was younger. My mom usually plays bingolotto the night before Christmas but I never have time. I am always in the kitchen stressing out. But this year it hasn't been that stressful getting everything done for Christmas. Also I haven't baked as many things as I usually do.

The other day I had a little reunion with my friend Patricia. She goes to film school in London but she is home for the holidays now. We had dinner, exchanged Christmas gifts and went to the movies (we saw The Night Before). OMG, that one is a eager little gift opener! I wanted to wait to open mine until tomorrow but she was like NOOO, LETS OPEN THEM NOW! So we did. I got Pure Sedu…

The Holidays Season

Hi my folks! Gosh I have just been laying on the couch sleeping all day. Nah, that is not entirely true. I have done laundry, watched a few episodes of Scandal and been productive towards my future. Yeah. Kinda realising that I have some more clothes that needs to be washed. Plus I just realised that the Christmas campaign is almost over! What! No! I mean the Christmas campaign at work. Those red Christmas cups. But the worst thing we'll loose are our red aprons! The red Christmas aprons! Well well. Hopefully we'll get those blue winter cups and just not go back to our boring green/ beige cups. Hmmm.

Christmas is on Thursday. I am glad that I finally figured out what to wear. I bought a dress from Zalando. Since I really don't know what I am doing for New Years I figured that I could wear the same dress then. I mean I won't hang out with the same people. Plus I really don't know what my friends and I are going to do, so it probably won't be that fancy and the I…

A Struggle

Hi everyone! How are you? I am good. I am sorry for neglecting this blog. Two weeks. Gash no one probably never reads this blog anymore. Except for Patricia. Hi Patricia! (P is my friend).

I have to go to work soon but I just thought that I would make a quick post before. LOL. I have the weirdest shift today and it is so boring because it so short. I work from 4 PM to 7 PM. That' s three hours. Like what the fuck!? Ugh! Nah, I mean I like my job and I just prefer to work longer shift because when you have these weird short ones you really can't plan to do anything. Unless they're scheduled earlier during the day. Eh, whatever. I should't really complain. I have a job. I can pay my bills. I can save quite a lot of money each month and I have money over for food and whatever I want to spend it on. I got it okay. I got it more than okay in a way. I should feel more blessed. People have it worse. Yeah yeah. But we all live different lives so what might be a struggle for me…

Shopping Sunday

Image
Hi everyone, how are you all? I am good. I went shopping today so I am pretty fantastic. I went to the big beautiful capitol that we have in this country. That's where the best shopping is. Gash, it's been a long time since I last went into the city. I mean I live in Stockholm but not in the city. Plus I don't work in the city anymore and on my days off I like to just stay at home and do nothing all day. I work hard, I deserve to do nothing. I had a lovely day shopping and bought some much needed things. LOL but I have decision anxiety so I had to call my mom for advice about like a million different shoes. I needed her to guide me.

Wedding Inspo

Image
Okay so I love looking at wedding dresses and wedding stuff on instagram. I like looking at all the beautiful dresses, and shoes, and rings and just all of it! I like looking at it and dreaming away. Hoping that maybe I'll be that lucky. Gosh everything like that feel like it's light years away from me. But who knows maybe I'll meet "the one" tomorrow. But I am working so I don't know, who I am going to meet the. Maybe Prince Charming will order som coffee from me and I don't what will happen. I have never even been to a wedding so I don't really knows what goes down. I all I know of weddings are from the movies and TV shows. But maybe someday someone will find my ass irresistible and put a ring on my finger. Maybe someday I'll meet my king.

Here are some of my favourite dresses and pair of shoes from my fave wedding accounts on instagram. It didn't feel just right not to share this with you.

House of Erika

Hi! How are you? I am good. But I am also a little annoyed. I wanted to blog about these two coats from VILA and House of DAGMAR but I can't find the VILA coat and the DAGMAR coat looks really ugly on their website. I guess that the ugly pictures in my phone will have to do.

Trouble Sleeping đŸ’€đŸ˜ą

Home sweet home. More like home sweet bed, but I am sitting on the couch so I really don't know if that makes sense or what the fuck I am trying to say here. Okay yeah maybe that I have had some trouble sleeping lately. Grönan fucked me up! Everything is Grönans fault! I mean I have had some trouble sleeping since the beginning of the summer. Not like every night but like on and off from time to time. The thing is the I can't get in to a comfortable sleeping position and maybe it really doesn't help that I stay on my phone for 30 minutes after I actually get into bed. Plus I sleep with it next to me. LOL. So when I wake up during the night I check my phone. Mostly to check what time it is but some times I check to see what notifications I got. Yeah yeah.

So like this morning when I had to get up at 6:30 AM my head was really heavy and I just wanted to get back to my cozy comfortable bed. I just wanted to sleep a little bit longer. But I had to get up for work. Gotta earn t…

Hi guys! I just thought that I would post something here since I haven't written anything here for a while. I have just been busy. You know, life. I have just been working a lot, and working out, and partying and stuff. Life, ya know. LOL. No but I am totally fine. I went out last week with Fannylicous and Rebecka. I never go out but Fanny was really persistent so I was like okay. I had a good time because I spent it with my friends but the place we went to was totally lame. Just lame. Nope, never again unless I get some VIP treatment. No but it was fun tough. A promoter for the club to a lot of pictures of us and put us up on stage which was fun. It's fun to feel special sometimes.


How are you all? Good. Okay nice. There has been a lot of great new music releases lately. One Direction, Justin Bieber, Pia Mia, Ariana Grande. OMG! Yes I love new music from artists that like to listen to. But I got to say that I am most excited about Justin new music. I mean the dude hasn't …

Stockholm International Film Festival 2015

Image
Hi guys! How are you? I am great! LOL. I have amazing news for you! I mean just amazing news in general. Guess what?! Maybe you allergy know this if you follow me on instagram but Alena will be showing during this years Stockholm International Filmfestival! How amazing isn't that! It's fucking crazy! Okay maybe I am over exaggerating a teeny tiny bit. I mean even though I have minor part in this movie it's pretty cool. I am going to on the big screen! Whaaat! Plus I will be working as a theatre coordinator again this year during the filmfestival and Alena will be screening on the theatre that I am working at. Aaaaaaa! At first I was kind of bummed that I wasn't working at Skandia this year but yesterday when I found out that Alena will be screening at Grand (where I'll be working I was okay with it hihihihi).

So if you want to see Alena there will be three screenings. The first one will be during the horror night deluxe which will be on Skandia on the 13th of Novem…

Work With Me

H guys! How are you? I am good I guess. Just sitting here trying to install my new phone but iCloud is not working with me. I don't know what the fuck is wrong because according to the iCloud settings on my computer I got 4,71 GB of storage available.  So why the fuck won't you fucking work with me! The fucking iPhone 5's fault. The iPhone 5 is my old phone. I don't know man. I don't know anything. If this thing that I am trying now is not working, I'll have to call apple tomorrow.

My Beauty Secrets: The Products That I Use

Image
Hi guys! How are you? I am good. I had a meeting today and afterwards I treated myself to some shopping. And now or tomorrow (probably tomorrow) I am going to treat myself to some more shopping. I feel like I never go in to the city these days. That I just stay out here in the suburbs. Idk. It's just because I don't work at Grönan anymore and work at a mall where I live. Well well. I would like to live in the city. It's just closer to everything.

Anyway, so I thought that I would share some of the beauty products that I use. I really don't use any expensive brands. They're quite normal price, according to me anyway and compared to everything else. I mostly use Neutrogena and FORMULA 10.0.6. Nivea has good face masks if you don't like these brands.

My daily cleanser
My daily moisturiser
My face mask
My Nivea pore strips (Biore also has some good pore strips)

My Beauty Secrets

Hi guys! I thought that I would do a quick post before I watch a movie on ViaPlay. LOL. I just thought that I would share some of my beauty secrets (well, it's just two). I they're not super secrets because I have once read them somewhere online. COSMO and elsewhere (I read a lot of COSMO).

My first secret is that you should use a face mask once or twice a week. It's better if you do it twice. It's so good your face. It will get like a deep nice cleanse and you will feel super fresh and just like a new person. Maybe that's over exaggerating but you will feel really fresh. You should also use pore strips. I use it once a week because I feel like that's enough for me but if you feel like you need to do that more often, then do it. Same goes for the face mask. If you feel like you need to do it every day because your face feel so dirty then do it. But maybe just for a week then, don't make a habit out of it because it's not good for your skin. Your skin ne…

Goodnight

LOL. I am about to go to bed but I just wanted to post something before. Sorry that I haven't updated much these last few days. I have just been busy with work. Both at Espresso House and with acting. Gosh. LOL but I love keeping busy! I get bored and restless otherwise, but at the same time I get super stressed when I have stuff to do all of the time. Or maybe that was just Grönan. I didn't really feel welcome there. I liked Gröna, it was a good experience but it is not something that I would do again because the bosses they break you down. Idk but they are very tough and don't listen to what you have to say. I am glad that I have a great boss now. He's really nice.
I have another shoot tomorrow. But I am happy about that. happy to get back in the game. I haven't done much lately because of Grönan. Grönan sucks up all of your energy and time. I mean your days at Grönan are so long. But I have no problem with that. The more you work the more money you'll earn, …

Hi guys! I gotta tell you! I have found a new love! A new show to obsess over! LOL. EM-fucking-PIRE. Empire! OMG it is so freaking good! I love it. The drama. The music. The actors. Jamal's fucking voice. Panties to the floor! OMG. Seriously Jamal's voice though. Fuck that shit is a panty dropper. But my fave song from the show is Hustle Hard. The song is heavy. LOOOVE IT! I also love Drip Drop and Keep Your Money. That Becky G song is good as well. All of the songs are good, let's just leave it at that. LOL.

Hi guys! How are you? I am good, except from being stressed as usual. I am always stressed. I have gotten so used to it that is a normal part of my everyday life. Nah but I am good. I have had a good week. I said goodbye to my friend Patricia who moved to London last night. No, it wasn't fun saying goodbye to her but we had a really nice dinner. That was very lovely. I got to go away on "vacation" for a few days to visit my mom and the dogs. That was really nice. We had a few really nice days. We went shopping. I actually found some stuff. Some new nice underwear and a skirt. Like I have been wanting a skirt like this all summer but I haven't seen one anywhere and now I found one in a small town. Well well.

Girls Night

Hi guys! I just thought that I would do a quick update because I am going away for a few days and I am not going to bring my computer.

Last night I had a lovely dinner with my very good friend Patricia. But even though it was so lovely and nice it was kind of sad because that will be the last time that we will see each other for a few months. She is moving to London to go to film school. I am happy and  a bit jealous of her but it is still sad since we kind of just became friends. We got to know each other since we both worked Gröna Lund this summer. It was a really nice dinner. We went to Riche, where I have actually never been before but I am definitely going back there. I really loved the atmosphere. I really do recommend the restaurant.

International Boyfriend Day

Image
Hello everyone! How are you doing? So you know that international boyfriend day is coming up right?! You don't? Well oh let me inform you then. International boyfriend day (yeah it's a real thing) is next Saturday on October 3rd. There is also an international girlfriend day, but that day has already past (it was on August 1st). That's how I found out about the boyfriend day.

So now you're all probably freaking out about what to get or do for your boyfriend on this special occasion. But no need to worry! That is why I am here. I am your saviour in this situation. So what am I thinking? What is my solution? Well, what about underwear! I know that I love some underwear for the international girlfriend day (well, Christmas, my name day, Valentins Day AND my birthday comes before that). Underwear is great because everyone needs them, plus the right underwear just makes me feel like superwoman. So I am guess it kind of has to be the same for men. Because when that first lay…

Caving In

Hi everyone! I thought that I had to update this blog before it dies. LOL. No it won't die but I have just been working and been busy. I mean yeah I have had some free time the last few days but I have been busy with friends. OOOOh, I bought sheets the other day. LOL, that is so interesting OMG (you love reading about this right, me buying new sheets... interesting). No but I feel like a grown up because I bought sheets. Idk it just seems like an adult thing to do. Maybe it's just me. Or like a thing you do when you go off to college. Yeah, maybe it's your parents buying them for you then. Idk, I feel like an adult and yeah that's that.

Oh, a friend and I went and saw the new Maze Runner movie today. I wanted to see Straight Out Of Compton but she was all like "Oooh, Maze Runner!" and just kept on begging me. So I caved. Eh, whatever. It was good. Much better than the first one. I have a good memory watching the first one. A wonderful memory. But yeah this on…

ERIKA Home

A quick morning post before I hit the shower. I have just been sitting here not doing anything special. Well, I guess you can say that I have accomplished something at least since I have eaten breakfast. You gotta eat something right. Like I don't understand people who don't eat breakfast. Okay it happens (but very rarely) that I don't eat breakfast because I am not hungry. Rarely. Most of the time the thing that excites me when I go to be that when I wake up in the morning I get to eat. EAT! Lol.

Nah, I have just been eating this morning. I have done som online window shopping. LOL (is that even a thing - it is now because I made it a thing). I what to buy some new things for my apartment. Revamp it you know. I have been checking ZARA Home because ZARA is the best. I have just gotten this new found love for ZARA's clothes. I mean their clothes are fab and look quite expensive or at least like the cost more than they do but they're not. So you just end up looking l…

Serious Enough

Hi guys! What are you doing this time of day? I am preparing for a job interview tomorrow and doing some laundry. Gosh, gotta love having your own washing machine. Doing laundry whenever you want. LOL. It's not that fun to do laundry but it's nice having clean clothes and it's way more convenient to have a washing machine at home. Hihihi. I just hope that some of the clothes will dry until tomorrow so that I can wear them then. LOL. I wanna look fresh and cool. Idk, if I should wear it though. I mean I want to look serious when I go to my job interview. I mean serious that I want this job. Because I do, otherwise I would not have applied for it.

It's All About ZARA

Hi. Gash I am too stressed these days. But not too stressed for shopping. I don't think that this stress is so good for my economy. But who cares. I mean yeah I care but I won't end up on LyxfÀllan, I am not that much of a big spender. LOL. Anyways, I bought this cute dress today at ZARA. I tried it on a couple of weeks ago but ended up buying another dress. Eh so today I bought this dress too. I just had to because it is so freaking comfortable. And it looks so great on me. It hugs my body in all of the right places.

I Need A Vacation

Hi guys! I thought that I would do a little quick post before I have to head of to work. Gash, I really do not want to work. I mean I need a vacation. I NEED some time off. I just need time for myself. Time to be Erika. Gash. I can't wait for this month to be over. Not that I won't work next month, it's just that I won't work at Grönan and I will have more control over when I work. So then I can better coordinate both school and work. And hopefully I'll have some time to breath and not feeling like I am going to have a stroke or a heart attack every five second. (I feel like that might be a possibility because I am too fucking stressed every single day.)

Hi guys! How are you? I am good. I had some time after school so I decided to go home and relax. I haven't done much productive. I mean that is if you don't count eating lunch and doing laundry. LOL.

Fun for me to night will equal me on the couch watching netflix.

Busy As A Bee

Good morning everyone! God why am I up this early when I have don't have to be at work until 2:45 PM? But, I have school. It's time to get that bachelors. It's just annoy that I can't go home straight after I have been at the university. I have to work. I have some time in-between but I don't know if it's worth going home for maybe maximum an hour. Hmm. Well well. Hopefully it won't take that long time in school so I might have time to go home and relax for a bit before I have to go to work.

Vacation

Hi guys! How is everyone? I am good. Though I am a little sick so I decided to stay home from work today. My physical and mental health needed. Thank God that the season is almost over. But I have actually started a new job as a barista at Espresso House. I am still learning everything and next week my boos is going to teach me how to do coffee. That is exciting. A girl a the coffee shop taught me how to do espressos last earlier this week. Which is the easiest thing in the world. LOL. It exciting to do new things. School starts soon but I feel like I need a vacation. I think that I might go and visit my mom just to get away and have change of scenery. God knows that I need that. But she is here now visiting me. Sadly I have to work tomorrow so we don't get to spend time tomorrow. My shift tomorrow is a freaking death marathon but I am a freaking beast so I will be come in first. LOL. Lets talk another day and see how I feel about everything then.

Hi guys! So it's back to work tomorrow after having two days off. Well well. I actually like my job. It has taught me a lot, which I am very thankful. I haven't done much these two days off. I hung out with my friend Patricia yesterday. She doesn't like when I call her Patricia, but I think her name is beautiful. We had a fika and walked around this beautiful city that we live in. Stockholm is really amazingly beautiful.

I took advantage of the weather today and tanned on my balcony. I need some color, I want a tan! LOL. Summer is almost over and I now kind of am realising this. Idk, I just think that I look pale even though I work outside and stand in the sun all day long. I mean you would think that would be more tanned. Maybe I should stop using sun protection. Idk but I don't dare to do that. I don't want cancer, it is not worth it.

Why Girls Get Mad At Boys

So I meant to do this post a few days ago when the idea came to me. I saw this very accurate text about why girls get mad at boys. I don't know where I saw it and I also don't remember where I saw it. Anyhow I am making this post now about it, why girls get mad at boys.

I mean every girl might not be like this but it very my applies to me. But it the end it's not our problem, boys are stupid and we should just throw rock at them.

Why do girls seem to get mad at boys for no reason? Why do we suddenly lash out at a boy we may have been out with once or twice and texted a little bit with? Why do this happen? I mean it's not for no reason, at least from my point of view. Well, it's because we create this image on our heads about our future with this boy. Or maybe it's just the we want to do something fun with this boy. Go to that new restaurant or club or go on a trip or whatever. We create a image in our heads about the two of us. Then you (all the boys out there)…

I Can Always Try To Do Better

Hi guys! Sorry that I have been so m.i.a. lately but I have just been really busy at work. Not completely true. YES, I have been busy at work so I really haven't had much time for anything else. But I had three days off this week which was really nice and now I work tonight and then I have two days off again. Pretty sweet. Like I had three days off, work all day yesterday and now tonight and then I have two days off again. Gash! LOL. I am gonna try do do a better job at updating. Also I am so sorry that I have posted anything from Alena. I mena screen shots and pictures from when we were shooting. Well, there are some on my instagram but I mean like more stuff. It's now off SVTPlay and sorry in case you missed it but you don't have to be super duper sad because it will be in theaters. I don't know when I just know that it will. Funny thing though. I saw the producer of Alena at Gröna Lund where I work. That was fun.

Now on a more serious not... I am have fallen in love…
