Almost 20 days since my last update, I'm sorry. I've been really busy with school and stuff, that I totally forgot about the blog. I hoped that at least one of the other authors would write something, but I am the only one trying to keep this blog alive ahah Ok, now writing about nice things, last week I went to Stockholm with a friend, I can honestly say it was an amazing shopping-trip. I bought this amazing dress at Zara, I'm totally in love with it!! And my friends found a wonderful dress too, we are so happy!!I look stupid in the picture, but whatever, the dress is so beautiful you shouldn't look at my face :)
Yesterday I was to tired to do anything productive, therefore I just lied in my bed and watched some movies that I've planned to watch for months: Submarine and Bill Cunningham New York.
Directed by Richard Ayoade, Submarine is a really good movie. Maybe not a wonderful masterpiece that will become a classic, but it's cute and it's a great feel-good film. The scenery is beautiful, the actors are good and the soundtrack is lovely. There was something that I didn't like, but I actually don't know what it is exactly, maybe the maincharacter was too awkward or tryed too hard to make everything right, i don't know. This is my opinion, I'm not a movie critic so I'm just writing what I thought about it (just to be clear). Ahah I wrote "just" a hundred times in the last sentence. Ok, watch it, it's good, not amazing, but it's worth watching.
-Bill Cunningham New York
Loved this documentary! I love fashion, I love photography and I love streestyle photography, I actually felt that Bill Cunningham New York was the perfect documentary for me. It's really interesting and beautifully made. After you watch it you want to move to New York so badly (ok, maybe it's just me). “The best fashion show is definetly on the street. Always has been and always will be.”
Love this quote! It's so true! It's an awseome documentary, you have to watch it to understand how amazing it is! I can't describe it... but if you are a fashion addict or if you are interested in street photography or if you love New York, you should really watch this!!
I have nothing else to say, so enjoy the movies and have a good day!
The only thing I can do well in the kitchen is baking, I can't cook but I can bake! Today I made white chocolate chip muffins and they are good!!I have this wonderful recipe for chocolate muffins and I decided to add white chocolate too; no low-fat, healthy crap for me today ahaha Just wonderful muffins with a lot of sugar and butter and they actually made my day!! Now I'm here sipping black coffee, eating muffins and talking to my family on skype.
This is the recipe for chocolate muffins (I added 100 g white chocolate, but you don't have to if you don't want to, they are really good anyway :) ).
-100 g butter
-2 dl sugar
-2 tsk vanilla sugar (not so sure if it's called so)
-1 krm salt
-4 msk cacao
-1/2 tsk baking powder
-2 dl flour
Melt the butter. Whip eggs and sugar, then add vanilla sugar, salt, cacao, baking powder. and then add at last flour and the melted butter (add the white chocolate if you want to). Put it in the paper cups and then put it in the oven (200 degrees) for 10-15 minutes.
Coffee, muffins and a good book, could it be better than that? I don't think so.
Here are some other random pictures that I found on tumblr.
The last two are special :D (Love you <3)
Hope you enjoyed this random post. Have a great day.
Café Tar in Uppsala is the best café ever. Yeah I know, I'm italian and I go to the italian café, how original!! I have to say their coffee is excellent and there aren't sizes or flavours, it's just normal, amazing coffee or cappuccino or caffe latte. And don't get me started on their focaccie or their pastries!!! Ok, but this wasn't ment to be an ode to Café Tar ahah but if you are in Uppsala you could as well try it, it's worth it!! Actually it's the only place where I can go and ask for "the usual" and get what I want (this can get you an idea of how often I'm there) ahaha I actually don't have anything interesting to say, so I'll post some random pictures that I've found mostly on tumblr. Enjoy :)
These two are from earlier today with my frind Isabelle.
Goodmorning people!! How are you today? I started writing this post on wednesday, but I haven't really been in the mood for writing or posting anything and I'm sorry. Tuesday night I watched "Carnage", directed by Polanski and I just can say... wow! I was pleasently surprised by this movie, it's not the usual predictable movie, it was different and funny. Christoph Waltz makes the whole movie even better, he's such an amazing actor and now I can say I've seen him without pants, it's a dream come true (and I'm just kidding ahah). The movie was really awesome and I don't want to write too much and ruin it for those who are planning to watch it (actually I don't know what to write about it, the only things that come to my mind when I think about it are "WOW!" and laughter), but I can honestly say you should watch it, it's worth the money and the time.
I haven't done much in these days, mainly school, friends and watching "Le fabuleux destin d'Amelié Poulain", my french has improved a lot, actually. Love that movie, if you haven't seen it yet, watch it NOW!!
If you are wondering where the other authors are and if they will write again, the only thing I can say for sure is that they are alive, I haven't killed them just so the blog could be mine ahah...
Hope you are going to enjoy the movies, and I think you will!
Have a great day.
Hello lovely people, here I am, writing to you again. I actually didn't think I would have anything interesting to write about today, but things have changed. I went to Stockholm to meet one of my mother's friends (she's like a second mom) and we had a great time, we managed to go to not one, but two museums this afternoon. First we were going to visit the modern art museum, but when we were buying the tickets they told us that there wasn't much to see today, so they recommended the archicture museum instead. It's beautiful! Not very big, but really beautiful and if you like or study architecture you should really go there.
Then we were going to visit National museet, but my mother's friend thought I should get to know the swedish culture better so we went to Nordiska museet. I am not that uneducated about swedish culture actually (ok, I know the basic stuff and everyday I learn something new ahah), but it was really interesting. They had a lot of expositions about furniture through time, I found a lot of kich things that I would love to have in my future house ahah (just kidding). Oh and there was this exhibition about old, classic toys, and the game boy was in there too. Now I feel freakishly old, even if I'm not. I really recommend this museum too. It's a really beautiful building, it looks like a castle. Stockholm is so beautiful! Every time I'm there I fall a little bit more in love with that city, and today was no exeption. It was breathtaking with the perfect weather! Really looking forward to move there someday.
Ok, this is what I've done today. I would like to recommend a tv-show too. It's called "New girl" and it's amazing, it's cute, funny and I feel like the main character right now (not that you care, but whatever). so if you don't know what to do or what to watch, watch "New girl".
On tuesday I probably will see "Carnage", the new Polanski movie, so I'll review it someday next week (I'll try to do it on wednesday).
The photos in this post are all mine, I took them last summer when I was in Italy. Hope you like them. I really feel that spring is slowly coming therefore I feel like posting pictures of flowers :)
I feel bad, I haven't posted anything for a while now. Ok, I can honestly say last week hasn't been one of the best in my life, but now I'm back :D Yeeey I've been doing a lot of stuff: watching movies, hanging out with my friends, partying ahah I thing I 've done more fun stuff (like going in the outside world) in these past 2 weeks than i've ever done in the year and a half I've lived here. Spring is coming here in Sweden too, I hear little birds singing, the snow is slowly melting, the sun warms you up and all this makes me feel so happy.
This outfit is a recreation of what I wore today. It's Monday so this morning I was really tired, and just grabbed some random clothes in the closeth, and it turned out to be a nice outfit (I was really satisfied). I love my red cardigan, I bought it last year at Gina Tricot and it was on sale so it costed almost nothing (mine is not quite like the one in the photo, but whatever... you get the idea).
I wanted to apologize because I told you I would have posted something about SFW, but I didn't, so I'm really sorry for that!
Hope you'll have an amazing day.
