Tuesday and moving on with my week, I've finally gotten stuff done that I was supposed to do yesterday so I can finally tick some more of my list for the week. I've paid my tuition fee, downloaded the books for my modules, worked out and so on. Feels great to be back on track after having kind of a rough day yesterday with nothing going my way. Life has definitely been playing a lot of tricks on me lately and I'm just trying to ride out the wave, so I'm happy that things have gone reasonably well today.. haha.

Really hoping for things to turn around from now on, even with autumn around the corner with darker and colder days, I'm not letting any depressing thoughts take over my head this season. The goal is to keep myself busy and not dig myself deep down in the same hole I was in last year. It will be tough but I've got so many new tools this year to use and amazing friends and family for support so I'm sure it will be fine. Do you guys also feel a lot more down during the darker months?

MONDAY: So here we go, first day back at university! We always start of quite soft with just introduction lectures in all modules we're doing for the year, today I had Creative Advertising and Promotion which is definitely one of the courses I look forward to the most this year, very hands-on and upbeat.

After class I went straight home to try to catch my delivery from ASOS, missed it and now I'm struggling with having the post office re-deliver it. What else went wrong? Oh, I can't access my online resources at the university portal at all so my planning day didn't go as planned. So now I'm considering to just have lunch and then head to the gym for a while, hoping for nothing else to go wrong today. Always so exciting to play with my luck!

TUESDAY: Tomorrow I'm having a library day and focusing on staying on top of things in my courses, reading up on some material and looking over the courses. After spending a couple of hours there I'm heading to the gym probably.

WEDNESDAY: Taking the day off studying to properly clean out the apartment of the rest of W's things. We'll see how long that takes but hopefully I can fit in a quick trip down to central London and just hang there for a while relaxing.

THURSDAY: W is coming to pick up his things in the morning, the final step in this whole process. After that I have classes from 10-14 and will probably spend the rest of the day in the library.

FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY: "Cleaning, planning and structuring up my life again"-days. I need to have a sit down and go through how I want to re-decorate the apartment and plan on what to get from Ikea and so on. J is coming next Monday to spend the week with me and my plan is to drag him to Ikea for help with carrying everything, hehe. So it will be a heavy and pretty dull weekend but next week will definitely make up for it!

@ Granger & Co.

Visited an old favourite for brunch today - Granger & Co. Those who have followed here for a while know that I loved this place when we went here earlier this year. And this time I thought to bring Annicka with me to introduce her to the amazing ricotta hotcakes. I'm still full just thinking about it, haha. So, we had a lovely brunch this morning, chatted about anything and everything and just had a great time. Really going to miss this girl when she flies back to Stockholm tomorrow. But we still have tonight to spend with each other so I'm not complaining!

Hope you've enjoyed your Saturday! x

I made it through the darkest part of the night, 
and now I see the sunrise. 
Now I feel glorious, glorious..

Today I feel great, haven't slept much but my mood is still on top. Woke up this morning to the fact that my student finance FINALLY has been approved in Sweden, very thankful for that since school starts on Monday, hehe. Also, got dragged out of the apartment by Christine for lunch and hanging at our university's Fresher's Fair. Who turns down free pizza and free beer? Not me. The remaining plans for my Thursday is to see if Annicka, who is on a flight from Stockholm to London in this writing moment, wants to do something tonight or else I'll just have a night in I guess. I thought I'd give you the full schedule for the weekend aswell:

So for Friday, tomorrow I'm meeting up with Annicka for some shopping in central London and just spending the day together. Later at night we're having dinner with some friends and heading out to some club. We'll see where the night takes us.

For Saturday we're starting of strong with brunch at Granger & Co in Clerkenwell to re-charge. Intense as it is when someone comes over just for the weekend, we're heading out again on Saturday and having dinner with some of her friends. I will definitely have a chill day after this, haha.

On Sunday I have the day all by myself, Annicka's flight leaves at 10.30 so no more time to meet before then unfortunately. It will be a crazy weekend but so much fun to have people over. My Sunday will probably be spent at home trying to rewind and relax before university starts on Monday, and then it all begins. :)

Tell me your plans for the weekend, if you have any! xx

First of all, I'm sorry for the lack of update.. hope you read this post and I'm sure you'll understand.


And now here I am, back in my very own apartment in North London, this time on my own. The last few days have really been an emotional rollercoaster with everything going on. I can't really grasp the fact that I've spent 4 months at home in Sweden. It was never meant to be this long but since circumstances changed, that's what happened. And getting so attached and comfortable at home again only made it harder to pack my bags this weekend, kiss my friends and family goodbye and leave for the airport. To go back to my own reality, in London.

London will definitely not be what it was before - not even close. I'm super excited at the same time as I'm completely terrified. It will all be fine in the end, that I'm sure of. But at this moment, it scares me. It scares me to be alone and handling it all on my own. Without W, without a lifeline. Of course, friends and family are just a call away but it's still not the same. I've lived with the same person for two whole years now, and leaving it all behind will be tough.

At the same time, I'm glad that I get the opportunity to do this by myself. I will definitely get to know myself a lot better and it gives a lot more space to grow in whatever way I feel like, with no one holding me back or waiting up for me at home. This is what makes me excited and what keeps me motivated. The fact that I get to be myself all the way, do whatever I want, whenever I want it. And that feeling, accepting to be on my own and seeing it as being free - is the thing that will be my motivation this year. What will push me to advance at university, spend time on my blog and do the things that I never got to do.

I'm so ready. And I hope you're with me.

I'm getting better! The cold is still there, very stubborn, but getting there. This amazing sop from Spoonery definitely helped earlier this week. If you're ever in Malmö and on the lookout for amazing soup - visit Spoonery!

In the middle of having the worst cold I've had in a while, it's time for me to start to pack up my life here in Malmö and move everything to my mum and then down into a suitcase. On Tuesday I fly back to London and then it's back to reality. It feels so sad to pack up everything from the apartment (biggest problem though is to find everything, haha) and to leave. So many memories from the last couple of months. Both happy and sad. Uuuh, trying really hard not to get emotional. I promise a longer post this weekend or on Monday with my final thoughts on the summer and I'll try to sort it all out.

Hope you'll have a great Thursday! x

Datenight with J at the vegetarian/vegan restaurant Kao's in Malmö.

Sunday brunch with my amazing friends (and J's enormous peanut butter bucket, haha)

Hi everyone! Hope you've had a great weekend, I've literally had the best time. So much to do with so many different people, so yesterday I woke up with the worst cold you could ever image. My entire head feels so heavy and my nose is so sore and runny. Uh, I hate it. I've managed to keep my health up for such a long time now and then it decides to hit on my last week at home, amazing. So yesterday was spent on the sofa the entire day watching The Good Wife and feeling sorry for myself.

Tonight though I have to be a bit more energetic since I'm going to my dad's house to have dinner, last time I see him before I go back to London. The time just flies right now and there are so many things that I want to do before I move back. With a cold hanging over me I have no idea how I will make the time though. Hate being sick.

Hope you've had a better start to the week and I'll check back in here when my energy gets back a bit more! x

I'm really in a good mood today, even though I haven't slept much the last few nights I still woke up incredibly happy and relaxed today. It might be the fact that I actually have stuff planned this weekend to keep me busy. Today, we are heading to my grandmother's 75th birthday celebration and after that I have a date night planned tonight with J. We're choosing between sushi or tapas.. decisions, decisions!

Tomorrow we're probably having a Sunday brunch with most of our friends, it's close to my last weekend at home since next weekend will probably be spent packing and preparing for the move back. But that's next weeks' problems! Today, I'm just enjoying myself and my good mood.

Hope that you're all having an amazing Saturday! x

'he liked her with long hair so she cut it short'

Is there any better feeling than a fresh haircut? I don't think so. I finally pulled myself together and booked an appointment to fix my hair and make it into a proper hairstyle again, haha. I'm blessed with very thick and fast-growing hair but it can be a pain in the ass when you have a short lob as I have. It pretty much looks like a helmet after a while and gets very heavy. Also, if you look a bit further back on my blog, you'll see that I've had extremely long hair for such a long while but decided to cut it all off last year. Now I can't even imagine growing it back out again, so in love with this haircut! So thanks to the best cousin in the world who works at Saxins in Malmö for making my hair look this good!

Other than getting my hair done, I don't have any particular plans for the day. It's raining like crazy out so no real weather worth heading out for. I'll probably just load up with comfy clothes and a good movie and spend my afternoon on the sofa. Great plan! x

What are you up to today?
