just me

This is me today. Looking tired still. Feeling tired still. But happy so that's OK.
Had more B&J last night mmm. I think we might go to the cinema tonight again and see Shutter Island.
Before that, we're eating lovely veggie Moussaka left over from last night with some extra vegetabkes, potatoes and some garlic bread.

I ate A LOT of food and ice cream yesterday. Grey rainy days make me hungrier and B&J's Chocolate Macadamia (My favourite) was on offer so I had to get some for last night. We watched New Moon and were quite dissapointed. The special effects were lousy for about 80% of the film and Kristen Stewarts acting is NOT impressing in The Twilight Saga films. But at least we've seen it now and we still had a nice evening on the sofa together, joined by Ben & Jerry.

chrystelle tshimanga

Chrystelle Tshimanga is gorgeous. See lots of amazing photos here.
She reminds me a bit of diana ross in Lady Sings The Blues in some photos. One of my favourite films.

soft soft soft...

Another super exhausted day. I hate it. I feel very ill and that is not fun... Especially when you don't know the reason WHY you're feeling that way and the doctors can't find it out either or help you in any way. It's only been going on for hmm 7+ years now.
This pajamas looks very soft and comfy. I need a pajamas. I'm just using old tops now with shorts that are too big. Or my boyfriends pajamas. That one is nice too. The one on the picture is from here. Expensive!
I've started using Johnson's baby lotion. I like it so far. If it's good enough for babies, it's good enough for me.
Got to go get some groceries now, I fancy something coconutty for dinner. Have a lovely weekend!

colours and a cup

1, Some of my favourite colours. I have loads! I like almost all colours. I just have different favourites for different areas. :)
2, A cup I've wanted ever since I first saw it but that I do not own yet... I was reminded about it today when I was reading this blog.

moleskine recipe journal

Oh I wish I had this! My recipe book with cut outs and own recipes and notes is falling to pieces.
I did not end up getting hot chocolate. Lots of coffee with whipped cream was good enough for me. Plus lots of snacks - sandwiches, nuts, apples. Yum.
The sun is back, spring is back. *happy*

hot chocolate

Mmmmm I really want some hot chocolate right now. Yummy. It is cold and rainy and grey... a day where hot chocolate is needed! I think I have to nip to the shop now. Looning at these photos is making my craving even bigger.
PS. Alice in Wonderland (3D) was great!

Wednesday, 24 March 2010


I'm reading a Twlight parody book at the moment! "New Moan". I'm laughing out loud A LOT! :P
It's for people who've read Twilight but also realizes that the book (and film) series is a bit silly...

*borrowed photos


Tonight is the night. We're going to finally see Alice in Wonderland, in 3D of course. I'm very excited! :)

colourful books//cherry blossom

Love these photos...
I've baked 3 times in 3 hours tonight. First pita breads, then a lovely loaf of bread with lots of seeds and goodness then the best chocolate chip cookies. I've modified my favourite recipe for the softest chewiest cookies ever. Top secret of course! But they are to die for.
I'm going to bake even more tomorrow! I'm filling up the freezer with goodies. Goodies that freeze well.

Now I'm tired and need to sleep soon... work early in the morning. But before sleep comes... bathing and reading Lolita! :)

Good night, see you soon.

I just saw the film Precious in the cinema with one of my best mates. See it. It's great. Very strong.

up all night girl

My new sunglasses... my new nail polishes from depend. Hard to see the colours here...classic red, quite a neony pink-orange, petroleum blue/grey...
I've already gotten into the bad routine of not sleeping enough or much at all... this always happens when I go to Sweden.

apple pie tea...

1. This lovely tea from Twinings tastes just like apple pie! Fabulous! I need to export some to England...
2. I bought this pink chopping board today. We needed a new small one and I like colourful fun things in my kitchen.

Yeay! :)

Look what we found in Sweden! It should be available in the U.K. soon and probably in the U.S. already. I had not heard of it until today. It's the winner of the flavour competition B&J did a while back. I'm going to try it right now! :) Bye!

I fancy some denim shorts! To wear with black tights and an old t-shirt and a big soft cardigan.

starbucks coffee and vogue u.k.

The mailman made me happy again today. New Vogue - always nice. And two samples of Starbucks' new instant coffee. I've been reading a bit about this new product and people seem to think that it doesn't taste as nice as Starbucks normal proper coffee - but I think it does. It's really nice and tastes like the espresso based drinks I normally get from Starbucks. But they are pricy! Almost £5 for 12 sachets... I'll drink that in 3 days.

This woman is so gorgeous in this photo. She looks like an ice doll or something.
Today I'm abusing coffee with LOTS of whipped cream (I have to use it today don't I) and preparing for my journey tomorrow.


From the producers of Little Miss Sunshine: Sunshine Cleaners. This is possibly my new favourite film. Wonderful. I laughed out loud and I cried quite a lot to. Everything I want out of a film. Strong reactions.

candy and elle

Candy for my family (I'm going to go see them next week!) and new elle uk for me. The cover made me have to have this issue. I love elle - there so much to actually READ. Interesting stuff too, not just pretty pictures.

lemon meringue pies

Check out my lemon meringe pies in my baking blog here. :)

boots beauty products

Some beauty bargains I made yesterday. I've been wanting to try these products from Boots and now I have them. Seem good so far.
This blog really doesn't have a theme... I've got to many interests to focos on one thing,,,
I love reading books, baking, cooking, design (graphic, interior, fashion...and more), travelling, photography, films...skincare... So this blog just has a bit of everything I love in it. :) Hope you like that :P

I have one more blog for my HUGE baking interest. It is here: super sweet sugar

coffee and waiting

Yummy coffee, reading and waiting for the mailman in the sunshine in our bedroom. Next best thing to actually being in the sunshine outdoors.

today's obsession - Jars in windows

I'm off into town now - library, boots and then to see my man. We're going for a drink. Mm they have a gorgeous rose in the place we're going to!


Nice things from Swedish onlineshop Nelly. I love the shoes. And the top and the dress too of course. But the shoes are just perfect. Good price aswell. 400 SEK (about £35). That's nothing for a pair of boots.

waiting for...

I'm stuck in the house waiting for the mailman who is supposed to deliver a parcel...he was supposed to come yesterday but nope...he did not. So hopefully he'll get here today. I need my books soon! Lolita for me plus a cookbook for my sister.

colour collage

Just some things I like at the moment. I love strong colours too but for some areas I prefer light and natural colours. For office spaces, especially.

tea and shoes

I'm so cold. My fingers and nails are blue-purple and I'm shaking, I hate that it's so hard for me to warm up. It's a glorious sunny day and I'm like this, I'm wrapped in our best biggest blanket, drinking a big cup of tea. I've just had lunch so there definately enough energy in me... I'm waiting for the water to get hot so I can boil myself in the shower. Hopefully that will help. Probably wont.

I need new shoes, again.. I just threw my boots out because they had a hole in them. I'd only had them for like a month or so but they horrible weather ruined them. Snow snow snow.
I'd like something like the shoes on the picture above. They're awesome. I love superhigh platform wedge shoes. Comfy and stylish. They look like they can handle some water aswell.
