Yesterday I bought a new camera and a tripod! The camera is a LUMIX GM1 från Panasonic. It’s super tiny and cute and takes great pictures, but my favorite thing about it is that you can connect it wirelessly with wifi to your smartphone and control the camera with the phone, like take pictures with the camera using your phone (like a self timer) and even see the image through the camera lense on your phone in real time (wow, I’m really bad at explaining lol…) and I can also transfer the photos from the camera to my iPhone wirelessly. Which is perfect, since I edit my photos with the app VSCOcam nowadays (before I always used photoshop, but then my friend/colleague Madie showed me this great app!!!).
Now I don’t have any more excuses for not updating my blog frequently (except being busy/lazy lol).
Here’s a bunch of photos from the party VideofyMe had at Långholmen this weekend. We danced, picnicked, drank beer and sparkling wine from Fresita. Here you can see a video from the party that I made:
And here’s a longer version from the official Team VideofyMe-account:
Asked my friend (and colleague) Rasmus to take some outfit pics outside of our office during our lunch break today, he wasn’t a very good photographer though…. (PS. Clothes from Weekday and shoes from Adidas!)
The last three weeks my boyfriend has been visiting in Sweden, and on Sunday night he flew back to London, that’s why I’ve been a bit bad at updating the blog lately. When you have a long-distance relationship you have to take advantage of the few times you get to see each other. It’s exciting though, we’ve only known each other for 5 months and this was the first time we got to spend more than 3-4 days together in a row, so we’ve hung out every day for 2,5 weeks and spent every night together. Yay. Haha. Well, enough about that. I’m already talking about Leo to everyone, all the time… I just miss him a lot.
Hehe just kidding, I have no aspiration to become an actress… but maybe you remember that I was at a commercial film shooting a while ago? Now you can see the final result! Check out my amazing acting skills in the film above. You can see me climbing up the ladder from the pool in just my undies, right in the beginning.
Sorry for the lack of outfit posts and stuff like that, I haven’t been in the mood for taking pictures of myself due to my recent SKIN ISSUES. I’ve never had any problems whatsoever with my skin (I usually only get like a couple of spots per year, even during puberty it was all fine)… until recently, when I started experimenting with different kinds of birth control. I had been eating the same kind of birth control pills (Mercilon) for almost 5 years (started when I was 16 years old) without any notable side effects except gaining 5 kilos in weight, when my new doctor told me I couldn’t take them anymore because of the high risk of thrombosis, so instead I had to switch to another kind (Cilest), which were also fine without any side effects (except gaining some weight again and getting almost two cup sizes bigger breasts). After taking the new kind for a year my doctor told me I couldn’t take it anymore because it wasn’t safe and had been withdrawn from the market. Instead they told me to go back to Mercilon, that could give me thrombosis, so I did… After a while I noticed it was giving me mood swings and headaches, unlike the first time I took them, so I decided to switch again, this time to Prionelle, which unfortunately also gave me moodswings and headaches…
After trying a bunch of different kinds, I finally got recommended to try a vaginal ring, NuvaRing, which I’ve been using now for three months. About 2-3 weeks after I put the first ring in I started getting itchy red rashes on my face. They just got worse and worse over time and now, three months later, my skin is a disaster. Red, uneven, itchy. Ahh, don’t know what to do. Next week I’m going back to my doctor to get new birth control pills, I think I might go for Yasmin this time – any side effect would be better than rashes all over my face. But I’m so fucking sick of experimenting with hormones like this, feels like I’m poisoning my body.
Photo above is from April, before I started using the NuvaRing, when my skin was still fine. :( :( :( *sad*
Minimarket ‘Plateau Paige’
Adidas ‘Forest Hills Vintage’
A couple of days ago I ordered two new pairs of shoes! A pair of sneakers from Adidas and a pair of chunky dress shoes from Minimarket. I hope they arrive today! All my shoes are falling apart because I haven’t bought new shoes in like two years lol…
(My old roomie DJ-Simon.)
Alexander, not only drinking Grolsch, but eating it.
Last week I went to an exhibition that Grolsch Studios had for the art project ”For Forest Sake” by Richard Holland. They had built a skateboard ramp inside of Bruno Gallerian on Götgatan. Pretty cool. HNNY and the gang from VICE were DJ:ing, and there were a couple of live artists as well. I’m not in any pics because I was sick and gross.
Yesterday Leo left London and flew to Stockholm, to stay here for 2,5 weeks! I went to meet him up straight after work and we checked in to HTL at Kungsgatan 53 in Stockholm. (Here’s me posing in the lobby lol.)
We had such a nice view of Kungsgatan from the hotel room window!! Love old buildings.
HTL is a newly opened hotel chain in Stockholm. They have small but super cute rooms at really central locations in Stockholm City for great prices, check out their rooms and prices here.
After we’d checked in and hung out in the room for a few hours (no details…) we took a cab to St Eriksplan for dinner and wine at Leo’s friends’, Christoffer and Elena’s, apartment. Well – my newly found friends too, I suppose, if Leo’s willing to share. Then we went home and went to sleep. Such a nice evening!
A few hours later I woke up next to this sleepy thing. ♥ ♥ ♥
I like the cute rooms. Old 19/20th century details mixed with modern design details. PS. New cropped sweater from American Apparel!
We had breakfast in like 5 minutes before I had to run to work because I had already overslept. I took a cab to work, unfortunately I ended up taking a Taxi Kurir-cab, which I hate. They always try to go longer routes and sometimes I am certain that they drive the wrong way and ”get lost” on purpose, to make the ride more expensive… The driver was hitting on me all the way too. That happens too often though with drivers from all taxi companies. Gross.
Well!! Whatever. I need to stop taking cabs so often anyway. I think I spend like 2000-3000 SEK/month just on cab rides… Now I’m going back to the hotel again to meet up Leo and fix the last things for Midsummer tomorrow. xx
