Hi guys!

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 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!

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 💙

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

Surprise from my brother.

It’s been a very dead day today, woke up at two in the afternoon and then flew around in Flower.flower-game-screenshot-1When my brother came home we started playing some other titles: Prototype, Little Big Planet 2, Tales of Xillia, Disney Infinity and right now, The Last of Us. He also brought a 20th/21st birthday/Christmas present (haha)! xD He really likes to hit three birds with one stone… really grateful though! Didn’t expect it at all.Disney infinity Villian package

Tadaaa!
The Disney Infinity: Villains Pack~

Randy is my favorite but the other ones are awesome too *w* He’s so cute with that evil smirk!
We only played in the Toy Box yesterday but today we went to the pirate world and used Jack and Davy Jones. Confusing but fun. The camera is bugging me but I’ll see if I can fix it.

I’m going to the dentist tomorrow (yes feel sorry for me :c) and since it’s Friday, I’ll upload the DIY candy-thing I’ve promised for a few weeks! >3<‘ See ya tomorrow!

PS3 funsies~

Today I finally bought a PS3! c:

Went to the nearest Elgiganten to buy it but apparently they didn’t have 500 GB PS3’s without a Little Big Planet bundle >_> The guy I asked if they had any in stock (which they didn’t) did give me the great advice to buy the bundle and not play the game.

“Thank you, I’d looove to buy an expensive bundle including a game I don’t want to play”  – What I wanted to say but you know…no need to be rude.

I told him that I’d seen the one I was looking for in the other store they have (but it’s further away) so I went there instead and found what I was looking for. The only one left too! QwQ Almost didn’t see it at first because it was hiding among some 12GB versions and LBP bundles.

PS3 I’m happy to finally have it! :D It’s so light and even though people think it looks ugly I think the design is fine. You just see a black box in my dark room anyway (I’d be a shame if it was super awesome-looking and no one could see it ;3)!

I thought I’d also show you the games I’ve got! (Especially for you Andy)
GAMES1These are my brother’s (he had a PS3 but it broke a few months ago). I’m not entirely sure if I get them (since he’s getting a PS4 and it isn’t backwards compatible) but right now I don’t see it as a huge loss if I just get to borrow them ^^mina spelAnd these are my games so far… the Eyepet thing was my first game. >_> My brother gave it to me a few Christmases ago (so hush)! xD
Prototype is technically my brother’s since I bought it to him in Edinburgh as a present but there wasn’t any room for it in the other box.

I’m planning on getting Alice Madness returns, Lollipop chainsaw, Beyond two souls and Batman Arkham Origins. If you have any tips on good & fun games, give it to me! :D I prefer RPG’s, platform and games with good stories.

And the controllers I have:
LRLRSANDSTARTANDBBABHere we have (from the left):
A Blu-ray Disc Remote
My brother’s Dualshock 3 controller (we should have another one + the one I got today)
An Afterglow Ap.2 controller
A Playstation Move Motion controller

Right now I’m updating the system and it was the first thing I did so I haven’t played anything yet Q_Q It has taken it about an hour to get to 40%… so sloooowww!

I’m going to watch Buffy while it loads, have a great day!
I’ll see you tomorrow with some stuff I’ve drawn. Don’t expect anything fancy (as usual), I was bored when I did them >wÖ

Monsters University premiere

IMG_1572After the movie~

IMG_1586IMG_1587 And SF’s Monsters University menu! *w*b

Popcorn in a cute (hard paper) box, a plastic mug (you could choose either a Mike, Sully or Art figurine to have on top) and the memory game-cards.

This one is far better than the Wreck-it Ralph menu… didn’t expect to get the card game (but I love to collect stuff so it’s a pleasant surprise) :3

monsters_university_2013-wideI liked Monsters University. It was a worthy prequel and to see tiny Mike was *AHHHH*… he was adorable °u° I laughed and almost covered my eyes when they almost lost the scare games (twice Ö^Ö)!
MonstersUniversityDean1Ps. Dean Hardscrabble is awesome *gay monster crush :DDD*… oh and she reminded me of the Grand Councilwoman in Lilo & Stitch!

// Nancy

Ps2. Look at all the SP hits i got today (been a while since I got this many in one go)! x’D IMG_0875

On my pre-order list!

Ahhhh… having a cozy Saturday? It’s been a really grey day and my mom tells me that it was non-stop thundering this morning! And the news are overflowing with rain disasters :c Since I don’t have anything to do and I got my salary yesterday I decided to look what I want to preorder :D And this is what I’ll get (and the bonuses)

1. Disney Infinity for Playstation 3

DisneyInfinityLargeI will get a Merlins Summon Power Disc Pack with the pre-order

2. Kingdom Hearts HD ReMIX 1.5 Limited Edition Kingdom-Hearts-HD-1-5-Remix-out-September-13-1098119As you can see on the picture, an artbook will be included!

3. Pokemon X & Ypokemon_boxartI pre-ordered both in a bundle c: I don’t know what the pre-order bonus will be but hopefully it’ll be similar to when SS/HG came out: figurines of Xerneas and Yveltal. In Japan you’ll get them if you have a special ticket from Corocoro. (source: Bulbanews) *Crossing my fingers*800px-CoroCoro_August_2013_p49-50

That’s that for now! There’s lots of releases that I’m looking forward to but I have to restrain myself…
With my next paycheck, I’ll buy my long anticipated PS3! I have so many games on my to-buy-list , I’ll have to get myself a “real” job soon >w<‘

Have a great weekend! //Nancy

Energy drain.

I’ve been trying to post but this week has required a lot of energy :’3

I was at Lovisa’s from Sunday to Monday with some friends~ It was really hot so we shot each other with water guns. When the evening came we sat around the dinner table and ate home-made pizza.1011357_10201723703763901_1119771932_nIn the morning it was blazing hot again and we ate breakfast outside. Our own redneck seemed to enjoy it.

Then Robin and I went to his place and had a season 6-marathon of True Blood… which was great. I’ve catched ut AND I didn’t have to feel like dying inside while waiting (because of some of the cliff-hangers)! Robin will come here on Tuesday and we’ll see the new episode together c:1782927443_1370238035

Wednesday… I did nothing special but when I decided that we needed to buy tickets to the premiere of Monsters University, I got a lot of questions and disappointment >w<‘
Many can’t come because they don’t have money. And my brother and his friends wanted to go too so they asked me tons of questions (like: when, where, how ect.)…and in the end the one who asked the most dropped out.monsters_university_2013-wide

Yesterday Robin, Marcus and I bought 5 tickets to the premiere so it’ll be us and my brother and his friend Gustav ^_^b

Now that I’ve written everything down… it doesn’t sound like much *_* But I’m totally exhausted and I think it’s because of the lack of sleep. I can’t go to bed until early morning so to wake up at 10 really destroys me.

Right now I’m watching It’s kind of a funny story and I can really relate to what Craig is saying sometimes. 1356697383_sd73tumblr_maie2m1nzj1rvc8e5o1_500tumblr_m9fuhq5Afk1qk15gao1_500I really like the movie~ And you should watch it!

A hot summer’s day spent at Skara sommarland!

On the 7th of July we (my family and miss Anon) went to the amusement park Skara Sommarland. It has the usual amusement park-side and a water park-side. Here are the pictures I took~ 

IMG_1306 kopiaOn the busIMG_1308 kopiaWe just arrived (and for some reason I took a picture of my brother...)Skärmavbild 2013-07-18 kl. 03.13.46IMG_1313 kopiaHamster wheel in Kotteland (kiddie land)IMG_1315 kopiaWhile riding the Tea Cups. Pro tip: if you want the ride to be funnier, try to spin in the opposite direction!IMG_1317 kopiaIMG_1319 kopiaBefore riding Newton.IMG_1346 kopiaThe water park! (taken while we tried to figure out where to change)IMG_1327 kopiaAnd finally in the water~IMG_1329 kopia
IMG_1331 kopiaBy the wave poolIMG_1342 kopiaMy brother (in a like a boss-pose) down Nyagara. This is just before the pool at the end. I recommend this one! It was a lot of fun and  super scary haha (because it's faster than you expect).IMG_1345 kopiaThe big drop. We didn't do this one though :c we wanted to save it for last but it was time everyone was exhausted... next time! *_*IMG_1349 kopiaAt the space bowl. My brother usually doesn't ride thing but just that day he yolo'd xD He was so scared tho'IMG_1370 kopiaThat's some cotton candy... *A* It was yummy though because it tasted like strawberry!IMG_1372 kopia IMG_1374 kopiaWhile waiting for the bus to depart.

I didn’t take a picture of the first thing we tried and that was “the crane”:press_98

It was pretty nice but over all, their amusement park didn’t impress me :c We didn’t do a lot of stuff because they looked lame. If you go there, it’s probably just for the water park… or you have small children that would like to go on the mini rides + visit kiddie land!

Sorry for the post being overly late… my brother had the computer yesterday and our internet connection sucks atm!

My amusement park helper!

Hello people! Remember when I said that I’ve ordered something to help me take photos at Skara summerland (here), well it came the next day :D

I bought Krusell’s SEaLAbox so I can use my dad’s iPhone to film and take photos in the water *w* Aaaahh I’m so exited!851575_392309830866329_1153417386_nIMG_1296 IMG_1298

Sorry for the dust on the case. The transparent material is silicon so dust stuck to it like crazy! It’s easy to wash of though~

It’s a waterproof case for the iPhone 4(s) and anything similar/smaller. It’s supposed to handle being under water (down to 1 m.) for 30 minutes. You also get a plain black strap (woho, I won’t lose the phone in a current :D).

So I will probably take some pretty cool pictures!IMG_1301My grandmother is here to watch our furry cuties tomorrow while we are away. We need to wake up school-early… 6 o’ clock because we have to be at the central station at 7.30. Worth it though!

Oh and I’m working Sunday till Thursday (no Monday off…) so the possibility that you get the Skara Summerland-post on Friday next week is unfortunately very high :c But think of all the money I will get *wahahaha* QẅQ

See you next time… whenever that is :3 Bye bye~

Surprises in the mail and ticket buying!

Good evening! Been out all day today hehehe.
Went to Merielle’s house to just hang out (watch her play Dumb Ways To Die and play some AC:NL) and then we met up with Arashi~ We were both about a half hour late (but either of us knew since everyone’s phones were turned off), it turned out fine in the end!

Then Merielle and I took the tram to the cinema to pay for our Evil Dead tickets :D We’re going to see it on Thursday~ I’ve never seen a horror movie on the big screen… it’s going to be fun and probably creepy as hell!

evil-dead-poster-hi-resYou just have to google it to see how disturbing the movie is *_*b

DSC_0180Afterwards we ate because we were so hungry and we also bought candy! I’m saving mine till Thursday :3

On the way out from the house this noon, we caught the mailman and demanded our mail, he gave them to us (in exchange for a peak at my mom’s id-card) c:DSC_0177Our games were here! I ordered Pokemon Mystery Dungeons Gates to Infinity to my brother (my mother asked me to) but what I didn’t know (until Thursday) was that they had ordered games from my wish list too ♡ DSC_0175

My new games :D

I got a surprise too, the missing tunnels came! Never86 gave me a pair of white plugs too, unfortunately they aren’t the same size but since I got them for free as compensation I won’t complain… it’s just a little ironic haha.DSC_0176

My mom called me not too long ago to tell me that I’ll be working two days this week. And there’s a schedule for the next two weeks *dun-dun-duun*, my boss is actually organized c:
It’ll be really good for my economy… and really bad for my body >w<
But hey, If people have been working there for 25 years, I should be able to handle to work four days in a row… right? °w°’

I’m going to play my lovely games now! See you tomorrow~
