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.

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 💛

IMG_0744Beautiful Fiona 💚💐👑

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!

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!

// Nancy 💖

Worked on hardcore mode (+ plans).

yoThis definitely doesn’t feel like a Sunday, might be because I worked yesterday and the day before. It was exhausting and I never ever wanna do it again haha! xD I worked from 15.24 to 00.12, came home and slept two and a half hours and then worked from 8.30 to 17.24. The day shift felt awfully long. But it means that I’ll get two days pay at the end of October *happy*. I get payed the month after I’ve worked and I felt like that was a bad thing at first (two months waiting for money is never fun) but now I think it’s great (since the money lasts longer).851581_144885039019096_588913436_n Looking forward to the rest of the year… I haven’t written anything on November or December in my calendar so I basically mean two months ahead *haha* but I’m sure N&D will be fun too! I just don’t know it yet ;D
These are some of the things I’m going to do:

Go to the annual Gothenburg Book Fair.
✩ Visit Madeleine (Eora) in Copenhagen. It’s really cheap to get there with bus so hopefully a couple of friends will tag along.
✩ Play through KH 1.5 HD Remix and Pokemon X&Y.
✩ Stop buying candy
. I’ve bought some on Jlist again but that’s the only exception.
✩ I’m getting my tooth fixed next month. I’ll tell you more when it’s done!
✩ Re-dying my hair at the end of the month (or sooner if I can’t wait).

That’s it I think.

I promise-promise that I’m going to blog more often *__* I’ve said it too many times now but tomorrow on I’ll post stuff every other day at least.
Preparing to scan some stuff right now! See you tomorrow~

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!

Day 5 in Edinburgh…

…was the last day.

IMG_0629After we checked out from the hostel but left our bags in the basement, Emma, Linnea and I walked on Princes street one last time, ate and did some last minute shopping in St. James.
We had quite a hurry back because we were on the other side of princes street and had 20 minutes left before we were supposed to be back at the Hostel to get our bags.
Funny thing is that if we had just taken our bags with us, we wouldn’t had to worry about anything because we were near the airline busses =w=

After this I only have pictures taken in the airplane! ^_^

This is the opposite from where we started walking :’3IMG_0568 IMG_0569 IMG_0571 IMG_0583At St Margaret’s Loch. The swan’s followed us <3 I’ve never seen so many birds in my life! Even baby-swan’s! °_° And crazy-looking duck-thingies.IMG_0586 IMG_0588On our way back to the hostel!IMG_0589We bought yummy stuff on the awesome little store to the right of the hostel.

Day 3 in Edinburgh!

The Wednesday in Edinburgh was the day my teacher had planned the three hour guided tour. I didn’t take pictures until we stood in front of the church and that’s about 40 minutes in to it.
IMG_0493 IMG_0500 IMG_0501Talking about poet’s and haggis in front of a building resembling Rapunzel’s/Juliet’s tower!IMG_0502Mr. Andy, the tour guide, in front of the old way of detecting thieves. A step was shorter than the others and the thief wouldn’t know so the person would fall (which woke everybody up).IMG_0503Edinburgh castle!IMG_0506We had a break in the middle of the tour to drink and eat something in a cafe called Hula. Hot chocolate :3 The god damn coins drove me crazy though. We couldn’t tell them apart most of the time!IMG_0507 IMG_0508The “real” Hogwarts (crappy picture, I know) :3IMG_0509Bobby… I love this dog! QwQ The statue is adorable too!IMG_0510The old red-light district. Andy talked about Burke and Hare here. Very interesting!IMG_0511 IMG_0514 IMG_0516This is where the tour ended. Since Andy doesn’t get that much money for the mount of time and effort he puts down on these tours, I think everyone gave him something as tip.

IMG_0517The building from the outside.IMG_0520Emma! Haha I love this picture :DIMG_0521Princes street on the left and the bridge on the right.IMG_0524The last picture of my shoes before they probably burned… in hell.IMG_0527St. Arthur’s seat from the bridge.IMG_0528We walked around looking for souvenirs and while we walked on a small street, I found this little shop with fairies ect. I instantly thought of Robin. You should go in if you ever visit Edinburgh, Robin! ^_^

End of pictures from day 3.
