Merry Christmas!

Sitting at home after a long day with all my relatives, celebrating Christmas at Grandma's house. For the first time in five years, I spend the holidays with my family. It was really fun but tiring. This is also the first time in five years it has snowed as much haha -- I told my family I brought a white Christmas with me from LA to Stockholm :P
Enjoying GREAT food and lots and lots of treats! My cousins kids came over and Nala just flipped. She kept barking and growling because they were constantly around her screaming, running around, and just charging at her. I think she was extremely relieved when we left because she has passed out on the sofa now haha. But a really good thing this week was not only Christmas but also S. has come back from the States. She didn't come alone haha, she brought half of Right Aid along with shoes and a really nice top from my beloved H!!!!! I could not believe my eyes when I saw what she took out of the bags haha -- Before I show you some pics I took of the things I got, I need to tell you that I got my Triwa watch, purple with green background from my parents, i.d bareminerals from my brother, and an interesting looking shirt from my boss. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and now we can look forward New Year!! Tomorrow may mean shopping, if my mother is in the mood that is haha. The monster sale is on, starting tomorrow, so looking forward to more crazy crazy days!! I have put up with morons at work thinking they know the law, only to shut up when finding out I was in Law School and actually knowing what the law says -- aaahhh, education is the best weapon for sure :)

Well, have a wonderful weekend and a great holiday!!

(Check out the shoes!!! Love love love)

(The chains on the top are so cool, love it!)

(Love all the things in the picture! Nala is checking out the goody pile and the shoes :P)

Until later my darlings!

Brittany Murphy

After I finished writing my christmas postcards I checked the news and saw that Brittany Murphy has passed away. According to TMZ, who I do not like to quote but that is where we first heard it, Brittany had a cardiac arrest and could not be revived. I was shocked! She was only 32 years old, how can she pass away from a heart attack! It is sad news indeed, we have lost an amazing, bubbly, funny, and beautiful woman. She brought joy to our screens in movies like "Clueless", "Just Married", "Uptown Girls", "8 Mile", and many more. I hope this will let us see that diseases do not discriminate and we need to come together and fight them, also it teaches us not to take life for granted. R.I.P wonderful Brittany Murphy, you are in our minds and prayers. Until later..

Give WHAT up?!

Talk about a bloody storm today! When I was heading to work I couldn't see in front of me and it was loads of snow all over. I waited for the bus and of course had to stand there for like 15 mins, freezing my butt off!! Luckily the transit between the buses was smooth with no wait at all. I was busy at work wrapping christmas gifts, which is one of my favorite things to do during this time of year. I have always loved gift wrapping and now everyone ask me to wrap their gifts -- so more fun for me!!

(Look how nice it all looks under the tree!)

(A different kind of tree -- Look real closely and you will see all the Mountain Dew cans -- and bottle at the top -- recycle the tree, scent of Mountain Dew)

As I was surfing the web today, and discovering a booboo I made with my aunts dress (lets just say the order never went through because of address flaw) I found a pair of Louboutin boots online for like $170. I don't know if it is a fraud or if it's second hand or whatever but let me tell you that finding it made my heart leap -- would I honestly own a pair of Louboutins already?? Oh my god!!! But I need to look further in to it! By the way, I love how my friend pronounces Louboutin, lu-bu-t-in, and squeals after hahaha

I don't think I am gonna be able to go to the hairshow :( I feel really sick and I have to work until 7 pm (have to be there at 9 pm) and also need to find clothes. How am I gonna have time? Or worse, how am I gonna explain it to someone who is used to getting her way, all the time haha -- she will be disappointed. If I don't feel better by tomorrow night there is no way I am going. It's hard enough to be at work and try to pretend everything is well but to go out and stay out until 5 am, not something I can pull off! Also, on saturday we have an event with UNICEF and there is no way I can miss it. The present representant told everyone I will be taking over the group so missing the first event as the "group leader" doesn't exactly scream commitment and trust. Busy busy busy -- my boss assumed I would be working on Saturday, something I have not done considering they have a girl working weekends. When she was by the door, ready to leave, she turns around and says "Oh yea, you are working Saturday"
-- PANIC!! WTF!!!!!!
Me: "Uhm, no I can't. I already have plans with UNICEF.
Boss: "Try to get out because I need all the staff I can get"
Me: "Doesn't L. work on Saturday? I thought she worked and I already committed to helping out"
Boss: "Well, yea she is working but it is going to get crazy at the store because I think it will be a busy day. You know what happens when it is busy? Greater risk of theft!"

Why should I care? It never gets that busy that it is granted someone will steal a bag or something from the store. There will be three people monitoring the tiny store , come on! How can you say abandon your volunteer work for something like this -- ugh some people

Me: "Well, let me check if we have any volunteers that day. If we do I might be able to get out if not then it is just me and another girl, meaning I cannot let her be by herself."
Boss: "Huh! Ok, check and let me know. But try to get out, as much as you can"

I was just standing there not knowing what to think. How can someone, who just explained about the generosity of our culture and sense of volunteer work, to abandon something like UNICEF -- for the sake of her sales? "Oh, hang on let me reschedule collecting money for starving children" -- "They can learn how to read later, I am busy right now" -- "Oh ok, they can walk miles and miles to gather water because I am too busy to give up a couple of hours of my weekend to sell some things benefiting the children!" -- I mean, do you understand how stupid that sounds??!! Some people should get their priorities straight! I understand you need to make a living as well, but to ask someone who helps you very often to give up the few hours she helps children in need is just preposterous!!! So, you can guess what my reply will be tomorrow...uhm, solid no!

Anyways, I should go to sleep, need the rest to have energy to turn down two people; first M about the hairshow and then my boss about Saturday. Life is swell haha -- well I hope you guys are having better things planned :) Until later sweeties

(I just wanted to share this image with you guys hahaha Merry Christmas!!!)

Oh christmas tree oh christmas tree....

This morning I took Nala to the vet (had an aweful night, thought I was getting sick but apparently false alarm) and they told me she didn't need to get her rabies shot yet, it is due next year. Instead she got another shot and we headed back home. I need to dubble check that the papers are accurate because I am doubting that she got her shot in 2007 considering I got her 2006 -- I am getting worried now, shit! Well, I will check it now so no need to panic -- After we came home, I went with my parents and Nala to buy a christmas tree, after checking different trees and bothering the sales people we found the one! I ended up decorating it all by myself because me and my mom started arguing the second we started putting the lights up. After loads of fussing with myself, the tree stood proudly in the corner of our livingroom. The whole house smells of christmas, each day more and more ;) After decorating the tree I headed out to meet some of the UNICEF girls I will be working with closely. I, of course, got lost (even though I passed that very street every day for years haha) it was freezing outside and soon my hands and ears were completely numb and I was on the verge of turning back home. I wore heels like the dumbass I can be, this lead to walking veeeery slow and almost falling on my ass the entire way.
(This is our tree without decoration, it is called Kungs gran and literal translation it is called King tree -- dunno what it is actually called in English)

(It is not a clear picture but I did it all, minus the tinsel haha -- the thing under the tree is actually a santa hihi -- I had to use all the decoration we had and let me tell you some of these we have had for YEARS!!!)



(The star, I don't know if you can see it though haha)

Atilla Fluff

Saw this on the news and just melted!! I am not a cat enthusiast but this kitten is just too adorable!!



Gotta go give Nala her rabies shot..until later animal lovers and non-animal lovers

Defying gravity

I took the train for 45 minutes for an appointment only to arrive there to find out I arrived in vain -- She couldn't find my number and therefore she couldn't tell me the appointment was cancelled so all I could do was turn around and get back on the train again and head home. I went to meet H and M to plan for Friday and fearing for the well-being of my butt hihi. It is so icy under all the snow that when seeing me walk is like seeing someone with severe back spasms haha. I need to find a nice top for Friday because M's hairsalon is hosting an event and I have to be there as support but it is not too bad because we are getting goody-bags, YEAY!! She refuses to tell us what we can be expecting in the bags haha but I am guessing it is going to be hair products -- not complaining :)

Speaking of defying gravity I absolutely love Glee's version of "Defying Gravity" from Wicked. Here is the version sung by the character Kurt (Chris Colfer), who is amazing -- especially when hitting the high notes, many of us women cannot even dream of getting close to them, let alone hitting them :) --



This is the version sung by the character Rachel (Lea Michele), who actually resembles Idina Mendez (broadway star, also actress in the movie RENT and stars in WICKED).



I hope you liked both versions by these two amazing singers -- until later darlings

One step at a time

I wanted to share with me some good news before going to bed, I went to the meeting with the girls from the UNICEF group. It took me forever to walk because all the snow has turned to ice so I was basically ice skating my way to the bus stop -- When I got there, they decided I was to take over the responsibilities of the entire group! Really exciting but at the same time slightly nervous -- I also realized I made two new wonderful friends. My first impression was not quite accurate hehe but I mean we make mistakes, come on!! I am going over to one of the girls' apartment and enjoy a night with some people from the group, where we will break the news (aaaahh hope they like me) -- Anyways, I should go to sleep so I won't twist and turn in my bed all night like last night *sigh*. I found this song and of course I fell in love hihi -- Nice cover of "Umbrella" by Mandy Moore.



Until later creatures of the night

Nobel Ceremony

December 10th was the Nobel Prize ceremony as usual. I watched it with my mother, who asked my father why he never attended and where he replied " Nah, I turned them down -- not my kind of crowd", cannot say my parents do not have a sense of humor haha! As I was admiring, and bashing, the gowns of the night, I thought about what I would wear if I was ever invited -- I thought long and hard, I came to the conclusion that it would have to be something eye-popping, extravagant, and of course GORGEOUS!! I love colors, however, when I went on http://www.polyvore.com/ I put together something I would not turn down --


As you see the dress is black but oh so dreamy!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Oscar De La Renta!!! Even though the dress is black I would wear accessories that would catch a blind man's eyes (no offense or pun intended -- just my dumb sense of humor -- moving on). Anyone who knows me, knows I am a sucker for accessories and wearing diamonds by Harry Winston, or these featured in this set, would be a dream! The clutch and shoes are beautiful, although the shoes might be slightly altered if I would wear them, but still preeeetty!! Since I am advertizing these websites isn't it fair if I should receive a gift from them hahaha -- no, just kidding -- or am I?

This is what I used to put together the outfit:

Oscar de la Renta dress, http://www.net-a-porter.com/ 40 542 SEK
Yves Saint Laurent heels, http://www.brownsfashion.com/, 5 887 SEK
Stone Frame clutch, http://www.lindestore.com/, 16 792 SEK
Platinum Diamond earrings, http://www.newyorkestatejewelry.com/, 103 024 SEK
Di Modolo Tempia Diamond ring, http://www.lussori.com/, 27 969 SEK
Triple Row Diamond bracelet, http://www.ylang.com/, 116 832 SEK

That is one expensive outfit, but you know I would rock it like a glam star hihi -- ok, enough with the arrogance. As you know President Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize which made loads of people drop their jaws, including me. I am not saying he does not deserve it, I am just saying let the man work for it and actually prove he earned it before awarding him. There are many people out there that work every day for world peace and they are not even thought of, yet someone who is involved in 2 wars at the moment received the award. Ugh, I don't know, it is just mind-boggling (if that is how it is spelled haha). Who knows, maybe in the future we will all say that he deserved it for all the work he put in but for now I am not too convinced. Funny thing was that he didn't even want to accept it because, I think, he was surprised as well haha oh well it is up to the committee. Also, it was blasted all over the news about the briefcase that holds the key to atomic bombs (or something like that), it was brought to Norway with President Obama -- Ironic!!!
Well, I should go to sleep, or force myself to sleep, because I have a meeting with one of the contact girls from the UNICEF group I volunteer. They are both leaving and need replacements so I might be of assistance -- will have to wait for tomorrow to see what will happen! Until later glamourous people

White winter wonderland

The first day of real snow was today - I looked out the window when I woke up and everything looked the same, dark and wet - after a couple of hours my mother exclaims; "IT'S SNOWING!!! EVERYTHING IS WHITE! How pretty..."My mom, and myself, love snow! It really is beautiful. I took Nala out for a walk and this was the first time she experienced snow :) It was a treat to watch her try to comprehend what was so slippery. I haven't seen snow in about 5 years and it felt nice to feel it fall on my hair, squeeze a snowball and almost fall on my behind because of how slippery it is hihi - I thought it would be nice for you to see what I am talking about so I took my camera out with me and snapped a couple of pictures. Here are some of the pics, enjoy!
(One of my favorite places around my building, outside J's parents apartment. Love the gazebo, especially covered in snow, it is so romantic)
(many balconies are decorated with beautiful lights, lighting up the dark days and nights - the snow looks so magical!)
(During summer time this yard is filled with kids playing and adults gathering)
(Nala's first steps in snow right outside the apartment hihi - see how far ahead of me she is, desperately trying to finish her business quickly)
(The building you see is the CSN building, where students are granted loans for school, the building of horror - no just kidding - or am I?)
(Yes, the P stands for parking, good guess)
(Nala getting used to the snow, one step at a time)
(Can you see the snow? CAN YOU?!! It is
so beautiful)
(My first snowball in 5 years - I can tell you this much, it was bloody cold hihi)
I was taking a picture of where apple trees grow during summer, around that area there is a military building and on the fence around the building it says no pictures allowed. As I was taking a couple of pictures a security guard was walking and noticed my flash. He stopped in his tracks and would not leave but stared at me, most likely thinking I was trying to steal secret info, you know written on the building, or maybe try to steal the architecture of the "oh so lovely" façade (hint, sarcasm pouring out of every cell in my body). Now the apartment smells like tangerines and biscotti and is lit by x-mas lights in the windows - I am gonna cuddle up with some fruit, hot coco, and biscotti and enjoy my first snowy day in 5 years - Until later my snowmen and women

The challenge


Just finished watching Julie & Julia and was blown away. Meryl Streep and Amy Adams are amazing actors and in this movie they were absolutely wonderful. The idea of doing what Julie Powell did was genial. Instead of allowing herself "go under" she found a woman from another generation, but basically in the same situation, and was inspired to do something new. She not only challenged herself but also fulfilled her dream she almost lost, becoming a writer. She chose to cook all of Julia Child's recipes in 365. Not only was she to cook but she also maintained a blog about every step during those 365 days. This made me think about what other things can we challenge ourselves to do during a limited period? Travel all over Europe and keep an online diary about all the places to visit? Maybe try X amount of extreme sports during X amount of days? Perhaps, try all the sex positions there are and tell the world about what you think of it (that is for you daring people in the world haha). Maybe for a whole year you do something new every day, something you have never done before, putting fear and prejudice aside. Whatever you do just make sure it is to make you feel better and challenge yourself, allow yourself to grow. I am thinking about what my challenge may be. For now I need to take Nala out for a midnight stroll - until later all you lovely readers

xoxo

They have done it again...

Kurt Schneider and Sam Tsui are back and this time it is Lady Gaga Medley...Very talented boys from Yale that are getting more and more recognition...future Ben Affleck and Matt Damon à la musicians? who knows? maybe...enjoy people

Many thanks

Thanks to all the "friends" that congratulated me on my birthday...I never forget to congratulate you but I leave and I guess "out of sight out of mind" really does work for you..just wanted to say thanks...feels great

I AM 26 YEARS OLD TODAY!!!



A lot has happened these past couple of days, I had a huge fight with my bosses son because he is a true SOB!!! Met an OH SO HOT man....I have met almost all my friends as a celebration for my 26th birthday haha...I was out last night with M and H and had a BLAST!!!! M's boyfriend, who was also our waitor at his resaurant/bar, gave us a huge bottle of champagne and guess what; M doesn't like champagne and H is taking meds SO I was the only one who could drink it. Every time he saw my glass half, he would pour more and before we knew it I had finished the entire bottle by myself!!!! Funny thing, I was not even buzzed...We were all amazed because I have not had alcohol in quite some time...odd...however, after a shot he got me as well as sipping off of M's dinks (she didn't like any of the drinks her boyfriend got haha..she felt so bad) it started kicking in..He brought me cake with a HUGE candle in it, but it was before midnight so M and H promised they would not sing to me...when it hit midnight they sang and congratulated me..it was very sweet and intimate, just the way I like it!!! I came home and my sister was up and she didn't even notice or smell that I had consumed any alcohol, and we are talking about a girl with the nose of a bloodhound....In the middle of the night I started freaking out about my liver for some reason!! I got up and drank tons of water and vouched I would never drink again, as I do everytime I have any alcohol hahaha....this morning my mom and sister thought it fun to come in to my room with a stale doughnut and a candle and sing happy birthday to me..yea, not so fun when your stomach is turning haha..I blew out the candle without making a wish, second year in a row. When my dad and brother came back from church they had bought me a cake so maybe I get a second chance haha and I know what to wish for! Now I am eating lunch all alone (I know it is soo sad haha) and I am heading out to meet G. before going to the movies with my sister to watch New Moon....HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!
(Yep this is the bottle..)
Gotta head out now so I won't be late...until later darlings...and Happy Birthday to all you fellow birth friends out there....

66 years


Had to take a break from work just to tell you that I met a lovely couple. They needed a belt for the husband and gloves for the wife. They are old but in love as newlyweds. When they finished their shopping I helped them with the door, they both have arthritis, and the wife stops at the door and looks at me. "We have been married for 66 years!", they both smile and walk away, leaving me speechless. When I finally got around to say something it was; "You made me so happy now, congrats!!" and they walked away....I hope I will be able to say that one day to someone...ok gotta head back to work, hope I made you smile :) Until later lovebirds

My wish list

Ok so my birthday is in a couple of days and I am meeting some of my beloved friends tomorrow for dinner, on Saturday I am meeting other beloved friends for dinner and some drinks...also on Sunday (day of my birthday) I am meeting with my sweet sweet friend that I met in Law School..I told all of them I do not want any gifts so I hope they all listened...(NOT) no just kidding haha...no seriously *dramatic paus* naah just kidding..this is the first time I have really meant I do not wish anything for my birthday...I am too busy wishing for things like acceptance to law school, getting a good job, and publishing my books which makes all other material things not so very important. BUT one thing I do wish is one of these watches: (Check out at Triwa.com)

I don't know which color I want though, they all look so nice. I love the chrono model, there are other colors as well and soo pretty!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! My mom told me to buy a pair of boots, her gift for me haha....call me old fashioned but I love to get surprised, unwrapping a gift is more exciting than the gift itself sometimes and getting it from someone instead of buying it myself hahaha...anyways, this "wishing" letter will be sent to Santa and maybe I will have a new watch for christmas!!! Please please Santa, I have been a good girl...I think ;P

Another thing I have wished for has been this kind of bracelet. I found it online a while ago but cannot find the exact one I saw. However, at the moment these bracelets are not worth the price...when I have the financial means to splurge on these things I will buy myself a bracelet like this
or

The black one as you can see, is called: Kidada for Disney Couture Wrap Bracelet, can be found at various websites such as zappos.com. The white one is Regencies Designer Jewelry and can be found at kaboodle.com...Basically I love leather charm bracelets, especially wrap!! Great gift...While we are at what we wish for, of course any pair of Louboutins are HIGH up on my list!! (Would not reject these babel boots by Christian Louboutin) Many shoes, bags, accessories and so on are on my list but let's be realistic, unless I am done with law school and have a great job this will remain as my wish list...please accept me to law school so I can begin the road to hard work and hopefully success....pleeeaaase!!!! Ok, I am starting to lose it again so I better post this entry and head to bed so I can wake up early and again go look for boots for tomorrow..cutting it short I know haha but that is me! Who knows maybe this time desperation will allow me to find THE boots...doubt it haha! Until later darlings

Christmas is getting closer!!

Coming home after work, completely exhausted, I sat down for a while before helping mom with some pre-christmas cleaning. I literally emptied out my closet so now I barely have no clothes left hahaha...only a good excuse to get a new wardrobe ;P...At the store I did the window decoration, LOVE LOVE LOVE doing that!! I am really picky and my friend thought I was taking too much time on details BUT when I was done he was surprised and like what he saw hihi....Anyone who knows me knows I LOOOVE christmas and decorating!!! December is my favorite month..Many good reasons; my birthday for one (Dec. 6th, in case you wanted to know haha), Christmas of course, Boxing day in England, NEW YEARS!!! This is the first birthday, Christmas, and New Years I will celebrate with my family in 4 years so that feels good!!

I stumbled upon Rihanna's new song "Russian Roulette" and just fell in love. It hit home for some reason. I hope you like it as much as I do...I will continue watching the lastest episode of NCIS and head to bed so I can wake up for another day at work, hopefully M. will drop by and say hello to the old days we use to have at work together hahaha...Until later loved ones

The Diva is back!!!!

I have to confess, I had always loved Whitney Houston especially after the movie Bodyguard but after the drama with drugs and embarrassment I did not care much for her as an artist. She has come back now and luckily did not let the drugs win! Welcome back dear Diva with that magnificent voice. Here is one of her new songs; "I Look to You"



Until later believers

Slow Sunday

This song speaks for itself...Perfect slow song to listen to during a slow day like this Sunday. Enjoy the voice of Beyonce and "Broken hearted Girl"

Venting

Today was the premiere of Twilight: New Moon in Sweden. I have seen the trailer and it looks great! I would not say no to a scene with a shirtless guy let alone a "pack" of guys without shirts haha...I have been watching Twilight over and over because it is playing on TV so I get to enjoy the teen romance and AMAZING music!!! I am so in love with the soundtrack and all the featured songs, I cannot wait to hear what music has been chosen for the new movie. Of course the frenzy of the cast is in full motion, it has been for some time now, and I must say I feel sorry for them. It cannot be easy to be followed wherever you go. I know they say that when you are a celebrity nothing is private which makes me say BULLSHIT! If it has anything to do with the movie or anything relevant to the job then fine, but they have every right to be left alone when they want to! Too many celebrities have gone down a lonely and dark path simply because their privace was robbed from them. If you are dedicated fans and really care for your rolemodels/idols then back off and respect their privacy. I think that as soon as people like Perez Hilton and gang start backing off a little, celebrities will open up a bit more rather than try to hide away from the public. Some celebrities need people like Perez, no need to name names haha, and to those I say; suit yourself when you see a picture in a magazine of you walking your dog without makeup, looking like any other Joe/Jane, you do not respect your own privacy so why would anyone else. There are plenty of celebs that manage to stay away from the spotlight whenever they want and those people are loved by many more than the people that chase the spotlight! Anyways, I wanted to get that off my chest because it has been bursting inside with all the articles like: Robert Pattinson does not want/dare to buy a house because he fears the address will be published and raided by fans, or articles about Kristen Stewart and the rumors about all the different male co-stars, talk about making her seem like a maneater. Focus on their jobs a little more and leave their private lives PRIVATE. *sigh* Ok, I think I know what I will focus on as an attorney, IF I get there haha. Also I found out that Rachelle Lefevre, Victoria in Twilight, was fired from Eclipse because some conflict in schedule (according to Summit Entertainment) which kind of sucks. She is Victoria and it will be odd to see someone else in the third movie instead of Rachelle (whose hair I am so jealous of haha...a very beautiful woman and amazing hair!!) Anyways, with this off my chest I will go to sleep and look forward a night with my sister and Transformers....Until later Movie fans
(Rachelle Lefevre, gorgeous woman)

Music to my ears


So I thought I was getting a call from my boss saying she wants me to go to work but no such call did I receive. I guess she is pretty pissed off that I have a life and do not prioritize her shop, which started off as help only when needed!! I spent my day watching Ps. I Love You and of course it made me cry, which happens every time haha. I also realized something new about myself. You know how they say "the way to a man's heart is through his stomach", I guess mine is through my ears haha. That sounds soo bad if not explained. I noticed that if a guy can sing and/or play an instrument I find myself extremely attracted to him. There is nothing like a good voice echoing in my ears. It makes me all warm and giddy haha...I guess that is my achilles heel when it comes to guys...Now you know something new about me and I am going to allow my ears to enjoy some nice and calming music. Until later voices in the dark

A shame of mine...

I might be facing a day of people breathing the smell of alcohol in my face as I assist lazy upperclass customers in the shop tomorrow..I am really not looking forward to it one bit!! I know I have complained about work and how I want to get a job but I feel like crap! I got a coldsore on my lip and it is so swollen that I look like a lip implant gone VERY wrong!!! I hate when people look at me as if I am a walking disease and by just looking at me they will catch whatever I carry. I have always said that I do not wish these coldsores for my worst enemies..that is how aweful they feel so I do not need people to make me feel even worse about it. There was a friend of mine who I spoke with about my coldsores and I told him that people tell me I have Herpes. He turned around, all serious, looked at me and said "sweetheart, you do not have Herpes, trust me I know. I have Herpes...around my eyes (dunno how it ended up there but that is what he said) and what you have are feverblisters aka coldsores. They may be a version of extremely light Herpes but I would not call what you have Herpes. So don't listen to the ignorant people out there". To hear him say that made me feel so good, up until that talk I had always been so ashamed when I would get a coldsore, I would think the world would go under!! Yes, it hurts. Yes, it dries out my lips because I am afraid of moisturizing them and end up licking the area where I have no blisters. Yes, I cannot kiss anyone while it is on my lip. Yes, I have to wash my hands constantly so it will not spread to any other part of my body. But it is not the end, I did not choose to get this. 80% of the worlds population carry this virus in them (what I have heard but I could be wrong about the numbers) so I am not alone. Funny thing is the reason it broke out on me was because in my culture when we meet relatives we kiss 3 times on the cheeks, right then left then right again (or other way around). This woman came up to me when I was a child and kissed me next to my lips. She had a blooming coldsore and transmitted it to me! So, thank you dear woman for making me go through all this pain, emotionally and physically, for the rest of my life. But not to sound to bitter I must say that the best reaction I have gotten must be from H. Everytime I get one and my lip swells up she begs me to "infect" her haha...She want to get a coldsore as well and have full lips. I love her because it makes me feel less ashamed but of course I would never give in haha and now it has become a thing to say...
Me: "Hey, H. I got a fat lip again"
H:"Oh, I want one too!! Gimme gimme...drink from my cup! Touch my lip! I wanna have a big sexy lip like yours" hahaha love that crazy chica!!
It was harder on me when I was a kid but it is getting a little easier as I have grown up, except for the morons that look at it and say: eeewww, that shit is so nasty!! It looks so disgusting, YUCK!! and so on...For all of you with the same condition please try your best not to spread it. It is up to us not to infect people that do not have it. Wash your hands every time you have touched it and do not kiss anyone, drink from another person's cup, eat from someone's utensils, and so on. I read not long ago about a mother who had just given birth to her child. The mother did not realize the coldsores she had could be damaging. She showered her child in kisses, as any other newly mother would, and infected the baby, which unfortunately lead to the child's death. The reason was that the child had not built up any immune system yet so the virus was too much to handle for that little body. This is of course a radical case but what I mean is to be careful not to spread it. And for all you other lucky people, try to be nice because we are in enough pain as it is and do not need you to rub it in our face! Now, I will listen to some classical piano music before going to bed. Until later beloved people, all you 80% and the remaining 20% haha


Enjoy the wonderful music...It takes my breath away and leaves a smile on my lips, a long lasting smile...Makes me wish I would have been stronger and never given up my piano lessons, not let the bullies win...maybe one day I shall learn how to play the piano...LOVE LOVE LOVE

Oh Lala

I forgot to mention in my last entry what I got from my group leader after the concert, a pretty flower and a card where it states that UNICEF has donated 30 jump ropes in my name. It is a small but nonetheless important gift..Also it is a good idea for x-mas, so my friends might expect something like that from me hihi.
Anyways, changing the topic, after my appointment this morning I walked around waiting for my dad to come pick me up. I walked around the mall looking for boots, no luck again, when I heard a girl call for her friend, she called out Lala...Now, I want to know who in their right mind think to name their child Lala? When I hear something like that I think the parents lack serious imagination. Were they looking at the child after the birth saying; what should we name her? Oh I dunno, how does Samantha sound, or Jane,Rachel,Anne,Krista,Izabella, lalala..YES THAT IS IT!!!! We shall name her LALA! I think of lala when someone is trying to tell a long story quickly and do not have the effort to tell all the details...for example; "I was walking with Hanna and we saw Steve so we stopped to talk to him...Hanna and Steve started talking lalalalala...you know and then we said bye and walked home"...That is a way to use lala not "Hi, my name is Lala"...or even better use of it is "I am from lala land" because we all know it means H-wood!! I think that Lala as a name strikes me as empty (in many ways if you know what I mean haha). Lala would have issues carrying a conversation with my sister because all she says is lalala this and lalala that..poor girl would think my sister is calling her name over and over again...(Maybe this is a Lala hihi)

Anyways, hope all you Lalas out there will not get aggrivated with me but just speaking my mind hihi...There are many names that make us wonder what people were thinking when naming their child, Apple is one that comes to mind...poor Orange will be jealous...Oh, I should stop bashing other peoples preferences in names, we all have different likes and dislikes...So, until later sweethearts

CONCERT!!

I am home and EXHAUSTED!!! UNICEF (where I am a volunteer) just had a charity concert and it was amazing! I met so many people and we had so much fun...I love the artists that performed and the songs were all familiar so the experience was priceless...I also had the "privilege" to act as a roadie and OH MY GOD!!! Bless your hearts for doing what you do because IT IS HARD WORK!!!! I came home all sweaty and sore haha. It was some heavy stuff, to say the least. Here are some of the performers from the UNICEF concert at Hedvig Eleonora Kyrkan (the church where the concert took place);

(Besides being a singer, Myrra Malmberg is mostly known from the musical world as, Kristine from Phantom of the Operah, as well as Disney voice-over in Sweden. She is the one who arranged this concert with UNICEF. Very nice woman and AMAZING voice)

(Many of you will know Emilia as the girl who had the hit song "Big Big World" and she was as bubbly and cute as ever)

(Andreas Lundstedt is one third, used to be one fourth, of the famous group Alcazar. He is an amazing performer and is also a UNICEF ambassador. He has an amazing voice and energy. He does whatever he can to entertain his audience...just amazing...and very cute too haha)

(This group was the final act of the concert as many of the girls in the audience were there to see them. The three guys met during Swedish Idol aBoldnd formed a very successful group; EMD, which stands for Erik, Mattias, and Danny. They are wonderful singers, but to be honest, before I came home to Sweden I did not know much about this group. I know now that they sound amazing.)

The blonde of the EMD group, Danny, was walking around the church and came to the UNICEF corner where I was standing. When I saw him I thought to myself, wow what a handsome man and very well dressed, which is important to me haha. After a closer look, from the corner of my eye haha, I noticed he was a part of the group. He came next to me and stood there while listening to the wonderful choir that were singing. He walked around some more before heading up to the VIP area. All I could think was; many girls would be jealous of me right now haha too bad I am not really a fan, instead I just enjoyed the concert!! But I have to say that he looks better in person than what I have seen in pictures and TV..which says a lot!

Tomorrow I have an early appointment and need to hit the sack now so until later darlings.I will leave you with this though; if you have the possibility to lend a helping hand in any charity I ask that you help out because anything offered is needed. As they said today during the concert; one person cannot do everything, but everyone can do something!! So do something!!

JIMMY CHOO

(This is what was all over town, the blue Jimmy Choo bag with something exciting inside)

Walking as a grey cloud amidst the colorful sky one can say I stood out in the crowd on the hunt of Jimmy Choo for H&M. I left my house in a hurry to try to get my hands on one pair of shoes I have adored for over a year now. It was not until I saw the commercial for Jimmy Choo for H&M I noticed a replica of the shoes I wanted. The leather is not quite the same and the details are a tad different but all in all they look almost the same. I went to one of the stores by my house and was told to wait 3 hours before they would let the next group of people in, I felt it was not worth it to wait but instead I took my sulky self and left the store. But no rain on my parade, as I was walking I was thinking to myself that one day I would be a proud owner of Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, Cesare Paciotti, Manolo Blahnik, and so many more (that is when I am done with school haha). I did not think I was going to be downtown for long so I did not really fix myself up if you know what I mean. The pain took over and I had no motivation to dress up and get my makeup done like the rest of the women, and some men. Without my heels I tried to be as invisible as possible and before I knew it I found myself outside another H&M (we have lots of stores in Stockholm, which is no surprise considering the store is Swedish), this was the store where I volunteered for UNICEF the day I met the Hello Kitty lady. Anyways, I thought I should try my luck and headed up to the secluded Jimmy Choo area. I was told to wait in line and as soon as the group in the area were done it would be my turn. I waited for about 20 mins (while writing down this entry on my blackberry), holding my breath..."please please please have my size, please please please have my shoes.." and before I knew it I was inside, looking for my heels. I asked a lady who said they might be out then she turned around and checked under some boxes and LO AND BEHOLD there they were!!!! My beloved shoes!! I was holdning my breath for my size and when she handed me the shoes I felt like it was too good to be true..I tried the shoes on and they fit!! So I proudly walked out and I am proud owner of a pair of Jimmy Choo designed shoes! YEAY!! My mood instantly picked up and I headed out, in the rain I might add, and tried on some garments at MANGO but left with only my heels, very happy. I came home and my mother thought I was crazy, looking for summer shoes in winter time. I have no winter shoes and have not been able to find any that I really care for (and can afford with no salary haha)..But it is interesting though that in a country like Sweden, winter land, the selection of nice winter boots are not as large as I would have hoped. Maybe it is because I am picky or just because everything looks the same!! I look at people and they all look the same, it is hard to tell some apart simply because there is no individual style..I guess I have been spoiled in LA because one can find different styles in different areas but here in Stockholm wherever you go I feel people look the same..I do not like to go to the commercial stores because I will know that in the end I will look just like the people here and just blend in with the rest..ugh no sense of individuality whatsoever...Well, mother calls my shoes military and was not too fond of them. I showed her the original shoes and she was like OMG they are so nice!!! I look at her and I was like uhm madre, the only difference is the details, no biggy!!! She sighed and walked away...Oh well, smaken är som baken, delad (means the taste is like the butt, divided..a Swedish saying)..Until later darlings
(not as pretty as the original shoes but then again not the same price either so it is worth it!!)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BELOVED SISTER!!! You are now 14 years old, now we can call you a fjortis!! I am sorry if you felt your birthday passed not too celebrated but just know that we love you and wish you much joy, love, success, and happiness in life. May you live for more than 100 years haha...We are gonna go out and eat and then I will take you to the movies on Sunday so we can celebrate it then...You are now complaining about wanting the computer back yet you are sleeping haha so before I wake you I will finish this entry...

I heard something sad on the news today...I absolutely love dolphins, always have and always will. I have boycotted tuna simply because of the fact that there may be dolphins mixed in with the tuna...I saw that in Japan they have discovered fishermen slaughtering dolphins..the images were horrible and most of the water was colored red from the blood. The excuse they used was that the dolphins eat up all the fish in the sea..WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?! Of course they will eat the fish!! it is their food!!! Do you want them to start eating you instead, I know I would not mind it one bit!! heartless assholes!! They need to be punished!! This should not pass without punishment!! Where are all the Hayden Panettiere of the world? We need to end this slaughter NOW!!!!

Ok, D just woke up and is kicking me to give her MY computer so until later darlings and help out with the battle against morons like these in Japan...
