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

(Couldn't find the video to embed so follow with the lyrics haha, hope that is ok)

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

xoxo

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"



Until later...

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!!



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...

What is wrong with you?!!


I just wanna tell all of you people that make promises but cannot keep them: FUCK YOU!!!!
There is nothing worse than empty promises...if you know that you cannot keep a promise then just don't make one, it is just that simple! If you tell someone you are gonna call, then just call! If you tell someone you are gonna meet up, just meet them up! The least thing you can do is to let a person know what is going on so they don't sit and wait for an answer from you!! Don't you dare call yourself a friend unless you start acting like one!!

Hello Kitty

Today was eventful..I woke up at 7 am (fell asleep around 4 am) and got ready to meet my UNICEF group. There was an event for children and 20% off at all the products in the store (H&M). We set up some tables with Hello Kitty cupcakes and other goodies as well spending an hour blowing up balloons, at the end of that hour I felt pretty light headed hahaha...Me and another group member chose to be the greeters and checking the guest list (yes there was a guest list haha)..There was a woman who wore the Hello Kitty mascot suit and walked around the store greeting all the children...There was a group of Japanese people coming in and we had to keep an eye open for them, I had no idea why it was so important but I found out pretty soon. I greet a young woman, man and an older man (all Japanese) and this interesting looking woman walks in, she has two high ponytails on each side of the head haha, orange hair, with a blue bow (looked very anime), along with them they had 2 Italian men (had no idea who they were). When they left we bid them goodbye and the interesting looking lady half turns and looks at me, half smiles and slightly nods her head (looked really sneaky haha) and I returned the gesture the same way. We looked really odd but not in a evil way, more animated haha...she just had this thing about her. As the day ended (around noon) we packed up and left. I found out that the interesting looking lady was no other than the second chief designer of Hello Kitty!!! She looked really anime. I am not the biggest fan of Hello Kitty (not at all) but she is a mega hit all over the world and I think it is very nice that I met a woman so successful and humble, it made my day, and all this while doing charity work! It cannot get better than this.
(This is the woman I met,Setsuko Yonekubo. She is the second chief designer of Hello Kitty)

Our next upcoming event is a concert with some of Sweden's finest artists, November 16th...If any of you are in Stockholm that day please buy tickets (can be found at ticknet.se) and come over to Hedvig Eleonora Kyrka and help out UNICEF!!!

My comp battery is dying so I need to end this entry but I will write more about the upcoming events we have and also show off the shirts we got today from UNICEF to show we are a part of the group....can you tell I am excited ahahah....until later darlings

so disappointing



I tried, Lord knows I tried but I could not even finish watching halfway through Watchmen. I know the reviews were bad but usually what critics do not like I do. This time I was on the same side as the critics. I do not know exactly what was so bad about the movie but I could not finish it! I am a person who can watch almost any movie, once it is on I get sucked in to the story. There has only been one time where I walked out of the movies, when I went to see Alexander The Great...OH MY GOD soo bad!!! Watchmen is the first movie I watch on surfthechannel.com that I turn off before the end. I really tried but I could no longer bear it!! I was really disappointed because I had looked forward to seeing this movie for a really long time but I guess I was expecting too much! I rate it 1/5 R's (I am being generous)..As I was watching I was slowly dying inside haha so I chose to watch Four Christmases instead. So far Vince Vaughn is succeeding with his goal, make me laugh haha...I should go back to the movie...until later darlings

American dream



I first heard this song on Twilight but after watching Dance Flick I went to youtube and really listened to the lyrics and fell in love....I hope you will enjoy and understand the true meaning of the song...Until later

Plastic not so fantastic

I read this article in a swedish newspaper and it just appalled me. This plastic surgeon in Germany reconstructed his wife. The reason was because he did not like her body. He claimed that when they were dating he did not find her very attractive but married her because of her potential. What he means with potential is how her body will respond to surgery. Not only is he proud over the fact that he feels like God. He keeps comparing his abiblity to change people to God. Where do you come off?!! You are nothing but a simple and disturbed man! I was just disgusted of this aweful man but his wife was no better. She says "that when your husband is a plastic surgeon the knife is your best friend". Uhm ok! You are just a tad slow and no dignity whatsoever. I understand if you are not happy with some part of your body and you want to change it so be it but it should be for your own sake, not because some sad man wants to change you. If you are not the least attracted to someone do not get involve but keep looking for someone you are attracted to. But I guess they are a good match, she got a free surgical makeover and he got a barbie after his personal wishes. Good luck to both of you sad sad people!
I am going to get ready because I am meeting C. for some hot coco and chit chat...until later lovelies

Where have I been?

Between my sister taking over my computer (even though hers is just laying there), and our relative from Switerland staying over, I have not been able to update my blog as much as I would have wanted. I have time now, my sister is sleeping and our guest is at my grandmother's house. Not much has passed here in Stockholm on my behalf. I have been to work and listened to my mother's nagging, and of course watched movies. I watched Nim's Island last night and I truly LOVE Gerard Butler. He is just the classic man who makes my heart melt!!

Lately I have been working with one of my best friends. His mother (my boss) is like a second/third mother to me haha. When I grew up we were 3 families where kids and parents are friends. I grew up as one of 2 girls in a group of 6 guys (before my sister was born because she is 12 years younger than me, and J's older sister was like a big sister to us all which means she would not "hang out" with us as much as take care of us haha). Our holidays would consist of me, single girl, and 4 guys. This can explain the reason why I was such a tomboy growing up and why I love to be surrounded by guys. I had to "man up" if I could be a part of the group. Today, after being apart from them for 5 years, we reconnected at work. Me and D. are the only ones born 1983 and middle children so when we grew up we would get all the shit that happened amongst the kids haha. We started talking and D. starts scratching himself on the side and his shirt slide up. I see something and storm at him. "PULL IT UP AND LEMME SEE!!" He looks at me in shock and wonders what the hell I am on about. "I said pull up your shirt and let me see your tattoo! So he pulls it up and on his left side (rib area) there is a short, large font, quote, which is very beautiful. I read and say; "aaawww, who would think you are so deep haha". He turns his other side and shows me another tattoo on the right side of his ribs, hands clasping in front of a cross with a rosary entwined. It was absolutely beautiful. As I am in aw of that tattoo he turns and pulls up his shirt over his head. On the whole of the back there is a tattoo of an angel. I was officially in shock and speechless (which does not happen often haha). He started talking about how he is thinking up a motif for a halfsleeve. I did not know what to say so all I say is; well, I have been thinking about getting a small cross of my left wrist, when I am in court I can hide it under a watch or something. He looks at me and says nothing for like 30 seconds. He then, very seriously, says; "Don't start. Once you starts it becomes and addiction, trust me! You know you should stop but you really cannot. You say, this is the last and so it continues on and on. Please do not start". I was thinking about what he said and it made sense. The people I know that have tattooes say they will stop after each one they get but after a couple of months they are thinking of a new one to get.

Tattooing is a beautiful artform but addicting with your body as permanent canvas. If you consider getting a tattoo make sure it means something you cannot live without. Something where you know you will never regret. When you look at it, it should make you feel great every time. I hope you will never get a tattoo and wonder why you got it in the first place. (The beautiful Megan Fox and one of her tattooes)

Until later art lovers
