Selfridge’s beautiful window display

I took a picture of all the window displays outside of Selfridge while we walked through Oxford street. They were so beautiful and planetary themed. My favorite is what seems to be Mars, the god of war. And the one with feathers behind it is my least favorite… it felt very strange. For example: why is he holding the bow like that? And the overall pose too, is very strange.

Planets and stars are some of my faves and this was very aesthetically pleasing to me.

Pizza party w/ Charles and Emma

Met up with Emma and Charles yesterday to eat and watch movies! We did what we did last time: bought three different pizzas and got a third of each. Last time we made frankenstein’s monster-pizzas though because we cut them and assembled them before putting them in the oven, this time we just ate them, one at a time because we were so freakin hungry!

12355086_10208411037343061_1857058178_n   The pizza from last time 😊

This time we had ham – cheese, pesto – mozzarella and prosciutto – funghi and we watched the white chicks and mr. and mrs. Smith.

We had a great time and hopefully we’ll do it again not too far in the future!

I’ve blogged a lot today but this will be my last post because I have some school stuff to read and sleep to do!

The first London vlog is up on my youtube channel so check it out here, hopefully I’ll be able to edit the second day tomorrow! The third day won’t need any editing because I just shot one video that morning ^^

Shrek’s Adventure (+ Shrek haul) & Namco Funscape in London

Hi guys!

Here are the pictures we took in Shrek’s adventure, what I bought there (Shrek’s adventure haul) and also Namco Funscape pictures as a bonus! 😁 This isn’t a review, there’s plenty of them out there but Ari and I had super fun while we were there!

IMG_0733IMG_0739It’s Christmas time so Donkey outside was a reindeer (like me!) 😊

IMG_0741IMG_0742The display windows outside, very SHREK-tastic and Christmasy 💛

So much fun 😭 And I’m so happy I could do this with my best friend 💙✨💖

These are the things I bought:

The DreamWorks Tours London Travel Journal, I’ve included pictures of everything in it! It was £20 and for an extra £5 you got a ogre green keyring and magnet to put the small pictures they included and an extra photo which was the how to train your dragon one!12351099_10208408801647170_2046674366_n12351080_10208408801727172_716021284_n12348434_10208408802087181_1766100731_n12348544_10208408802727197_836813317_n12348323_10208408802327187_1256789590_n12351245_10208408802847200_238226353_n12348293_10208408803247210_460166599_n12358172_10208408803167208_595122722_n12355086_10208408803407214_731709221_n12278195_10208408803727222_1521167213_n12348739_10208408803487216_1686056560_n12358509_10208408803927227_189511822_n12355184_10208408803807224_1123811701_n

This mug cost £10 and I got one for my brother too! It has union jack on the handle and Fiona & Gingy on one side, Shrek &  and Donkey driving 😂 It’s a very pretty souvenir!12336168_10208408804007229_611336548_n

Next I got a tumbler with Gingy on it 😭 It’s red with a layer of gummy beads before the actual cup inside! It’s huge and heavy and fragile… I’ve already made two cracks in it 😢 This one was £6. 12334367_10208408804247235_1116591626_o

Lastly I had to get these: Fiona ears, that light up! I love getting headbands from amusement parks and whatnot so these felt like a must 😁 They have different settings on the lights, the ears either glow, blink or have a gradient on and off light. I like the last setting the most!  12355761_10208408804487241_1596976541_o

After Shrek’s Adventure we went into Namco Funscape, it wasn’t as exiting as we thought it would be but it wasn’t crowded and we played a little claw machine because there were some stuffed toys we haven’t seen before so it was still fun and nice to see the place!

Thank you for reading! We had a great trip 😁

London Day 3

I just have sky photos for day 3 >w< We were really tired and we had to run to the plane but we got on it and that’s all that matter 💙🌌IMG_0852IMG_0853IMG_0854

IMG_0856

You can really see the contrast here. Gothenburg was having a storm while we landed and London was really clear!

So christmasy 😭💙IMG_0802IMG_0804IMG_0810

IMG_0814Karl Lagerfelt’s store 😳 I didn’t know it existed!

IMG_0815Last picture I took that day! Rest is footage but we made it to Oxford street, we shopped and then we had to walk all the way to London Viktoria in the rain. It felt very miserable but in hindsight it wasn’t too bad 😆 We didn’t die haha 😅

Thank you for scrolling through 💜

London Day 1

IMG_0570Pre-adventure, bare faced & exited!

IMG_0578We were really early at the airport, an hour before the bagage drop opened so we got some wintery goodness @ Espresso house. I got the Winter frapino cream and Ari had the “tomtelatte”. It was super delicious! 😊

IMG_0602The clouds were laying really thick over Gothenburg but as soon as we ascended this is what we saw, the blazing sun.

IMG_0603One of my favorite things: the sky 😍

IMG_0622Bam! We did our makeup on the plane, a two our flight is plenty of time 😁

IMG_0634The view of the sky while waiting for the bus at Stansted airport 💙

IMG_0646First thing we had to do when we arrived at London Victoria: eat. The food tasted so good, the service… was creepy 😒 The guy behind the counter hit on us in a way that was beyond awkward 😩 We talked about it on the vlog we made so when I’ve uploaded it to YT I’m going to post it at the end!

IMG_0653Basically the only part of London we saw on day 1 but the buildings are very beautiful.

IMG_0658Incredibly boring picture but this was our hotel room, cheap and basic, just like us 😘✌🏽 I jokingly said “I call the big bed” and Ari thought I was serious so I rolled with it 😂 #truebestfriends She complained about the smell of the walls so she got some payback by nagging me to sleep 💞

In pictures, this day doesn’t look very eventful but just wait for the vlog, it was a bit wilder that this haha THE VLOG IS HERE! Watch it by clicking here. It’s really long so don’t expect a professional, short vlog but MWAH thank you if you watch it!

Post London

Good evening!

We came back from London today💕 I’ve slept a little less than 4 hours and I am exhausted but in the attempt to not flip the day (I have no idea to say the Swedish expression “vända på dygnet”) I’ve stayed awake until now (22.02).

Since I got home I’ve wrapped all the presents I bought, eaten a bit and caught up on my Youtube feed/watched movies 😌 Very relaxing after all the walking we did yesterday.

I have sooo many pictures to show you though… might start right after this (if my eyes doesn’t fail me or my head hurts too much)! I also have a lot of vlog-footage to edit but that will have to wait until I have some free time >w<

This is just a mini update but I’ll upload day based posts soon!

Kawaiibox September & October

Hi guys! I know I said that I wouldn’t backtrack but since I just started blogging again you guys might not know about this subscription box and I want to tell you about it! 😊

Since it’s a subscription box you get a box every month with 10-12 cute products for between 17.30$ – 18.90$. I have the one month plan so I get it for 18.90$, the other ones are lump sums and I haven’t made that investment yet but maybe I will when I have money left some month ^^

Now to the boxes themselves! This is the September Box:

IMG_9054

And this is the October Box:CUMR2533

Both pictures are from my instagram when the boxes just came home to me!

These are the only boxes I’ve gotten but they have similar categories of stuff in them:

  • a small pouch of some sort (the mumin one and the cat one)
  • a bigger bag (the adorable alpaca makeupbag and the bunny pencase)
  • something to eat (caplico icecream, goldfish gummies & candy sushi)
  • charms (toasted bread, eggyolk & cat)
  • a pen (a bunny inkpen & a lollipop ballpoint pen) these are my favorite in the boxes haha
  • 3D stickers (food & farm ones)
  • DIY stuff (bracelet kit, nail bling & gems)
  • some kind of paper item (a cute animal card & cute printed mini paperbags)
  • lastly, misc. things: fragrance balls in a plastic jar & a stamp set)

In conclusion I think it’s a very fun box to get every month! Until next time have a good time 😁

London to do-list.

hklondon11

London, a city neither Ari or I have ever been to. We’ve talked about going since our second year in high school and it hasn’t happened until now. Probably because the money we got from CSN (the central study authority) wasn’t much and it all went to food and a game every month 😂 (It feels good to be slightly older.)

So what are we prioritizing for our first time there? Here’s the list of what we’ve planned to do:

  • Shrek’s Adventure 19566-shrek_landscapeI’ve already talked about this on my last post so that’s why it’s on top of this one! Shrek’s adventure is a themed attraction and if I’ve understood it right it’s a live show with different elements and we’ll be able to buy a travel book with our pictures in it when it’s over + there’s a few rooms themed with popular dream works where you can take your own pictures and then a gift shop! (hella exited over this one)
  • Namco Funscape1091884226_Namco1Ari and I are both reeeaally exited to go here. It seems to be an arcade hall but with bumber cars and bowling alleys… so a small amusement park indoors (my fave)? 😱💕
  • Shopping on Oxfordstreet Oxford_Street_December_2006I’ve heard the name Oxford street in the past but looking through google maps (yeah I know… I want to be able to have a sense of location when I’m there haha) I found everything I want to check out! Superdrug☆, Boots, Disney store Primark are the main ones but there’s lots of other stores so hopefully we’ll manage to get to those too!
  • Last but not least… all the sightsSights-of-London.rend.tccom.966.544Since it’s our first time visiting, we have to of course see Big Ben, London Eye & Buckingham palace but I don’t think we’ll purposely seek out all of them because it feels like they’re just there but we’ll see 😁

I hope you found this interesting and please, if you’re a Londoner or have been there and would like to give some tips about where to go/eat/shop ect. please comment and I’ll read and reply, thank you 💙

How did I get here agaaain?

Hello! So… it’s been a while 😂

Two years and 20 days is quite some time!

I can’t remember why I randomly wanted to log onto this page again (even though I just did haha) but I’m considering using this blog again!

I’m doing this because I really want to be able to look back to specific days and see what I did that day (aka as a diary). I don’t really use Facebook for that purpose anymore because it’s so dull and I’m more active on Instagram if anything and there you can’t see which dates you upload stuff, just how many weeks it’s been 😞

So since I stopped writing here, I’ve graduated from high school and I got accepted to university and is studying to become a pre-school teacher. I’m not very good at studying so it’s tough but I’m looking forward to my future profession. It’s almost been a year now (in January) since I started and it feels like less but at the same time like it’s been a very long time. I feel like that about a lot of stuff in life: being a kid seems like so long ago yet not and being in high school also feels like yesterday but still not 😵

Anyway more recent news! This summer we went on a roadtrip in Europe, we went through Denmark, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal and Belgium+Luxemburg (on the way home only). Very exiting (but exhausting), I probably won’t upload those pictures because they feel like the past. I’ll start just to upload stuff when something exiting happens!

WHICH WILL BE NEXT WEEK BECAUSE ARI AND I ARE GOING TO LONDON!

🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊

It’s a “weekend” trip but we’re going Wednesday-Friday. There’s no actual school so we took the chance. We were actually planning to go in the beginning of next year but when I booked the plane tickets I chose the December dates and Ari didn’t ask me about it so when we were in check out I noticed and she told me that she thought I meant to do it 😂 I checked my schedule then and there and we went for it! I’m so exited and I’ve been planning like crazy haha, I get really obsessed when I put my mind into fun stuff.

Since we have a very limited time (only one whole day) and budget, we’ve only booked one tourist attraction and that is Shrek’s Adventure!

19566-shrek_landscape

I didn’t even know about it until a Youtuber I’m subscribed to uploaded a video of her going there but now I’m so stoked 😭💖 I don’t know much about the actual 4D ride but the different rooms with a lot of characters afterwards and gift shop looks like a dream! 😲

I’m so exited, I really don’t want to wait five more days but I have an essay due the day before we leave so it’s good that there’s time!

Time to wrap this thing up! But I’m just going to tell you about an idea I just got for uploading… I think I want to upload an weekly “what have I uploaded to Instagram” *w* It kinda sounds like a good idea but if I realize it’s stupid or something I’m just going to stop haha.

I don’t know if anyone’s gonna read this but if you did, thank you💕 (and if “you” is me… then you get no price but that’s the least you can do!)

Well until next time, have a great time!

Recent purchases!

You guys already know that I got a new 3DS XL case but I’ve also gotten a few other things – both in the mail and store-bought, that I haven’t shown you… because I’ve become really lazy with blogging C’:

Last Friday I got my preordered Seether 2002-2013! I ordered the t-shirt bundle even though I would’ve loved the shot glasses too. Shipping from the US is just too darn expensive. :c
 On Sunday my mom dragged me out to breakfast and after that I bought a Mickey t-shirt and two pairs of leggins. They are all really cozy and comfortable. :3
 When my mom came home yesterday I got my Paranorman + Coraline BluRay :D I ordered it for Halloween and it came a bit late but whatever~ Me and my brother watched Coraline first, which I’ve already seen and it’s magical. And now we’re seeing Paranorman (which I’ve never seen before), it’s hilarious and I love it!

 

Bild 2013-11-01 kl. 16.13The t-shirt(s ⬆⬇) is really big and comfy! I actually tweeted the picture above and Seether’s twitter account answered and retweeted it *I was a happy fangirl at that moment haha*Skärmavbild 2013-11-01 kl. 19.22.00Bild 2013-11-05 kl. 18.38 #2Bild 2013-11-05 kl. 19.10Bild 2013-11-05 kl. 18.50I’m writing this pretty late and I don’t like to put up stuff in the evening so that’s why I scheduled it to publish in the morning… when I’m sleeping ehehe~ I’m trying to not spend too much money this month but I’ll definitely get Professor Layton and the Azran legacies! :D But that’s it *hnnn… hopefully, me and budgets don’t go together*.

See ya when I see ya!mkd// Nancy

Nintendo 3DS XL silicone case – Pokemon Yveltal

When I got my pay I decided that I’m finally going to get a new case for my 3DS. The first one I had broke a few months ago. It was a red flip n’ play and I had it almost as long as I’ve had my hand-held (which I bought on the 3DS XL release day). :c

I originally wanted to buy a Animal Crossing case but realized that they are all see-through so it wouldn’t look nice with my red 3DS as the background. The Yveltal case I laid my eyes on was perfect though! It’s also see-through and the details (Yveltal, name and framing) are in gold.

I ordered it from Ebay and the seller lifesize777. He is really nice, very polite and helpful! It took less than 24 h. after I had made my order before he had shipped it off. Ö_Öb IMG_1089

I got it on the 30th (5 days after making the order). Wrapped in bubble plastic and encased in newspaper.IMG_1090I got two stickers as a bonus! :D And while lifting out the newspaper from the bottom I noticed this little folded note:IMG_1091sBest seller EVER. I really do recommend him!

So what does the case look like? IMG_1103

Tadaa! It’s so pretty~ The case changes the color of the system slightly.
It also has a protective back-side but there’s nothing on it (and that’s why I didn’t bother taking a picture haha).IMG_1107I took off everything I had hanging and exchanged them for the things I have on the picture.

I’m so happy and now I don’t have to worry about my 3DS getting all scratched up anymore~

Happy Halloween!

HalloweenieIt’s finally Halloween! :D I celebrated with my friends last weekend so today I’m going to play AC:NL to get some Creepy furniture and Pumpkin heads! Halloween in NL starts in an hour for me~IMG_1092

When we were at the super market today I bough a Scooby-Do Egg and lollipop c: And somehow we bought a Halloween cake!

The rest of the evening I’m going to play some games and watch horror movies with my brother. He also wants to see The phantom of the opera because I told him that his mask reminded me of the phantom (he hasn’t seen it).

I have to go now ♥ Have an awesome evening!
