I wish I looked this fresh this morning, hehe. At the moment I'm just sat on the sofa with a huge cup of coffee in my hand trying to gain some energy for the day. Even though I don't have any particular plans for the day I want to get something done. The loose plans for the day is probably to prepare som blogposts for the rest of the week and then workout later tonight with J.

The days are going by so fast and it's crazy to think that in just two weeks I'm back in my apartment in London again to do my final year in Marketing at Middlesex University. That two years ago, I packed my life into a suitcase and moved to a new country and now I'm so close to the finish line. After the rollercoaster of a summer that I've had I really hope that it will even out a bit and that things will move a bit more in my favour this season. Here's to a fresh start! x

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a fantastic Tuesday. I took a real sleep in today and just laid in bed, went up and spent almost 2 hours to do my makeup whilst eating my breakfast. I love my slow mornings. After that I dragged J with me out to snap some photos which you will see more of later on this week, these two were just last minute shots down by the canals before we headed back home. Now, I've just finished my very late lunch (pizza made on fiber tortillas, yum) and will soon be heading out again to go to the gym with J. A back session awaits today, I'm sure it will be a good one since I have loads of energy. :)

Speaking of working out, it's been a while since I updated you on my wellbeing. With the move coming up very quickly (two weeks left today) and me trying to get everything together with apartment contract, student finance and all of this I feel very stressed. Last autumn I made the mistake to stop working out and just solely focus on work without any fun or working out. Going to the gym has always been my escape zone and removing that routine was stupid of me. Which left me with no place to escape studying or work. But with everything going on right now I definitely feel like the gym is helping a lot, especially with my anxiety so I need to keep this routine up when I move back to London. First thing on my list is to find a suitable gym! Because it helps, so much.

Hello everyone. Here we are, a new week in and I've had the slowest start to a Monday ever.. hehe. I've literally been sat on the sofa with my breakfast for two hours now and just can't be bothered to do anything productive today. My plan was to get up early, head to the gym, do some grocery shopping and then do some work in preparation for university but my energy level is so low still, didn't really get very far. But, I seriously need to get my lazy ass off the sofa and at least go to the store. That I can do.

The rest of this week is very unplanned for me, I've kept it open if anything comes up that needs handling. I've applied for Student Finance (finally) and sent in everything that is needed to university so now it's just constant waiting. The weekend will be more upbeat with a birthday celebration for my grandmother on Saturday and either Friday or Sunday spent at home with my mum sorting out packing and plans for autumn.

Hope you've had a more productive start to the week than I have and kickstarted this awfully rainy Monday! x

Yesterday was spent walking around in a very rainy Malmö with this amazing person. We did some quick shopping, had lunch and then headed in to my favourite café here in the city - Kafe Sockerbit. This has been my favourite hangout since I was in high school and we always used to come here to drink tea and study. It has such a cosy atmosphere and perfect for a rainy day.

So I dragged J with me to sit down, drink some tea and play scrabble for a couple of hours, an amazing way to spend a grey Thursday.

Today it's Friday and we are just now having breakfast and will probably head to the gym in a couple of hours. I'm spending the night at my mum's and staying over until tomorrow so that's what's happening here. Hope you'll have a fantastic Friday! x

hello wednesday wanties

Started my Wednesday morning off with looking through some websites and got stuck on Na-kd, haha. So these things are currently laying in my wishlist folder on my computer just waiting for me to click 'order'. Aah, being a student really sucks sometimes.

Anyways, I got home from my mum's a few hours ago and have just been laying on the sofa since then. Way too slow to do anything else at the moment. The plan for the day is to do some administrative work now before lunch, book plane tickets home, check through module handbooks for university and such. Just really boring stuff to be honest. But it has to be done!

What are your plans this Wednesday? x

After a pretty rough weekend of not feeling too well, I got out of bed yesterday pretty early, put some makeup on, dressed nicely and headed out on town. What I've learned about my wellbeing is that I need to give myself a few days of just rewinding, but then I really need to get up on my feet again. Or else I could stay in bed forever. So that's what I did. I headed in to town, scouted through some stores and then bought some sushi on my way home as a reward to myself. As of that short ramble, I'm trying to plan my week ahead and these are my plans so far:

Tuesday: Today I'm doing a proper kick-start. I'm already doing laundry, cleaning the apartment and then I'm celebrating with a session at the gym. Later tonight I'm heading down to my mum's house for dinner and family time. <3 A perfect Tuesday if you ask me!

Wednesday: Probably waking up at my mum's house so I'm taking the opportunity to have a long walk on the countryside before heading in to town again. During the day I have plans to book plane tickets back to London and check through some boring university stuff. Time to get ready!

Thursday: Relaxing day. Since I had a really bad weekend I need to stop and breathe every now and then. Thursday for me will be spent on me-time. Face mask, a long shower and just pamper time. Definitely in need of it!

Friday: Spending the night with my family, having dinner and catching up again. It's not long now before the flight goes back to London so I want to make the most out of it.

Saturday: Spending with friends, probably having a night out. The plans are still pretty loose. :)

Sunday: Chill day at home with my dearest wifey. That's it.

As most of you may know, my mother lives just a short while from Sweden's most south point - Smygehamn. A very popular place for people to spend their summer or just go for a day trip to. During the summer it has been so incredibly packed but this week we took advantage of that most people are back at work or school from now on - which means peace and quiet by the sea. 

So I took J to my favourite place at the moment, Café Smyge, had the classic prawn sandwich and raspberry soda and just enjoyed the day down by the sea. After eating we bought some ice cream to go and went on a walk by the seaside. I love the contrasts of my life, that I have this so close to home but my second home in London that is completely different with the big city vibe.

First day of September, moving on to autumn really fast. This summer has just gone by in a flash, probably because I've been working all the way through it. I haven't minded it at all though, the weather hasn't been that great and I've had so much fun at work. A great distraction as well.

Now I'm moving on to plan my autumn and sort out what is going to happen. I was thinking about doing a post about this but I thought I'd just clear things up in a planning post instead, because that is what I'm good at. So here we go, here are the major plans and happenings of my autumn. Also, doing a proper throwback from last autumn. ;)

Starting my final year at university in London

Writing this feels so incredibly strange and unreal. I'm finally starting my final year of university. I have chosen mostly fun and practical modules for my final year; one of them which was a work internship which I've done over the summer at the bank. Other than that I'm doing E-marketing Strategy and Social Media, Marketing Strategy and Planning as well as Creative Advertising and Promotion. This year will be incredibly focused on making it through to graduation which is so close now - can't wait!

Living on my own..

Many of you have probably guessed it and if you know me you are definitely aware. Me and W are no longer together. There it is. I didn't know if I should spell it out here on the blog or whether to just let it fade away. This means that I'm now doing my final year in London solo. I'm not going to lie, it terrifies me to be on my own but at the same time I couldn't be more excited for flying with my own wings for once, exploring and living on my own. I'm sure this is going to be great, with some time and adjustments of course. My date day/night series will turn in to exploring on my own. I hope that you are with me on this crazy journey.

Figuring out what's next..

With finishing university, there is also figuring out what to do next. I've always had a clear image on what I want in life but right now I'm not that sure. I know that I want to work in marketing/sales. But what line of business or role.. that's where I'm lost. My plan at the moment is to apply for as many jobs as possible, and now since I don't have anyone holding me back I can work wherever I want in the world. I know that I've said this a lot in this post but it's going to be an intense, a bit terrifying but mostly exciting period!

I hope that you will want to follow me on this solo-adventure of finding myself again and forging my path to where I want to be in life. The blog will of course be kept alive and I want to make it into both my forum of expression as well as a more personal touch to let you in on what's going on in my mind. Let me know your thoughts! x

Earlier this week, J took me out for dinner at a restaurant that I've been meaning to visit for quiet some time (the entire summer to be honest) which is Eatery Social. They do Mexican tapas, and for those of you who have followed me for a while know how much I love Mexican food, and this was no exception. Great food, great service - just a lovely place. I appreciated the low volume in general in the restaurant, makes it much more talk-friendly. I guess it's because it's situated as the hotel restaurant, but still - I value that! We had some mixed things and a big pitcher of sangria with the food, probably one of the best I've had.

So, a little mid-week treat. Today though, I'm just staying at home looking through things for going home again. What I need for the courses I'm doing, for student finance, living situation and such. And plane tickets! I know that it's still a few weeks' left but I like to be on top of things. I promise you (and myself) that I will try to take some vacation as well and just rewind. Pinkyswear! x

This would be the perfect way to start of my Monday, unfortunately I'm a little bit more lazy today to do a full on mountain of pancakes. Buuuut, this was delicious though! Pancakes are my absolute favourite breakfast thing to make, there are endless variations and toppings - just love it.

So today is Monday and yesterday I sat up until 3am (yep, that's right) to watch the season finale of Game of Thrones. And it was totally worth it! Oh how I loved that episode, yes I agree.. the episodes have gone a bit soft lately but it really feels like they are bringing it together and putting people where they should be. I can't wait until season 8, which will be a while but it doesn't matter because I'm so excited. :D

Enough of that, today I'm trying to plan what I need to get done for the time that I am free of both school and work. I'm going back to London in little less than a month and I really want to make the most of it. The very unorganized plan at the moment is to explore as much as possible, go on more spontaneous trips to wherever I can, work-out as much as possible, fix everything that needs to be done before university starts and just hang out with friends and family until they grow sick of me, haha.

I'm excited for this autumn, even though there are some major changes. I'm going to be living alone for the first time ever. So it will be a completely new adventure for me. I know London so well, but on my own. That will be an adventure in it self.

Hope you'll have a great start to the week! x
