Secret Santa Gifts


With one month and four days left until Christmas Eve is here I thought it was time throw in a Chistmas post. I bet a lot of you have been giving up the exchange of presents to everyone you love, and instead you might do the exciting Secret Santa! Above are a few ideas for presents between 10 and 20 pounds. The book and the writing journal you can find at Topshop. The queen bee mug is from Gary Birks. The My Little Pony mug is from Gift republic.  The candle is from Illume and the canvas pouch is from Alphabet bags. May the Secret Santa be with you! xx


An eye check-up


Today it’s time for a first! Well, I did an eye check-up when I took my driving license, but then I knew I didn’t have a problem with my sight. This time though, I know that my sight has gone a bit bad, so I will go for the eye check-up, and probably pick out frames as well. I have a mixed feeling of panic and excitement over this! I won’t go for a fancy brand though. Before I get used to glasses I probably need the most price friendly on the market! It wouldn’t surprise me if I accidentally sit down on them, or lose them on the first week. I can already see myself looking around for them while they sit steady on my head, haha! xx

Whistles and Barbour

I like the top one since it’s long and looks toasty warm, but the second one is my favourite – the cape cut is so damn pretty!! They’re from Whistles and Barbour xx

Bianchi Café & Cycles

brunch västerås IMG_15150_fotor

Even though Bianchi felt more like a cafeteria than a cosy cafe, David and I enjoyed our brunch there yesterday. I wouldn’t recommend it as a good vegetarian brunch place, but if you eat fish, and especially if you eat meat they had a very good selection on their buffet. Not sure why they call it brunch either, since it goes on between 12.00 and 15.0o, but I guess it’s a Sunday thing. Either way, they had lots of cool bikes around, the place was quite full and the atmosphere good!

Now it’s time to hit the bed! The first day of the internship has been exciting, but it’s tiring to soak in all new expressions! Sweet dreams out there! xx


McBook Pro


No more HP for me because yesterday I got myself a retina MacBook Pro! I thought it was time to enter the Apple world all-in, and I’m already loving it! It’s so smooth to use and the high pixel screen makes it amazing to watch Netflix on! And of course, it will also be great to write my upcoming school report on, and other work!

Today is the day  before my 10 week-long internship/work experience starts, that I will practice at Länsförsäkringar Bergslagen – a Swedish insurance company and bank. My main project for these weeks is to create an introduction guide that aim to introduce new employees to the company, and effectively get them on board. To start new work is proved to be one of the most anxious times of people’s work lives experiences, and therefore I hope that a well made introduction plan can help to ease this process, both for the new employees, but of course also for the employer. Today is almost all about getting ready for tomorrow – I will go to the library, do some study and prepare for tomorrow morning’s meeting.

I will also try to enjoy this Sunday with my Kiwi of course. The other day we spotted a Bianchi Café & Cycles only fifteen minutes away from our house. Since Kiwi is a fan of bikes this place got stuck on his mind and we will pay it a visit later on – Italian Coffee here we come! xx
