Dinner time

Pizza Express, sometimes you are so underrated

Nighty night

Monday, 16 May 2011

I'm so tired. Absolutely shattered. Totally knackered. I don't know what's wrong with me. Every night I wake up like 4-5 times thinking omg I overslept, what time is it etc. Sigh. Just gotta get through it I guess. Anyway, hopefully I'll get get some ZzzZzZ now. Sweet dreams.

Sweeter Than Your Ex

Chocolate  torte

Chocolate meringue

You know who you are

Sunday, 15 May 2011

It's so freckin cold outside, as I was walking home from the train I seriously looked forward to a cup of hot chocolate. That's not right in May! Had a lovely lunch today on Charlotte Street. We were sitting outside braving the weather and watched people walk by. It's amazing how great friends can make you feel. Sometimes you think you are fine by yourself but then you realise how much those close to you mean. I know I wouldn't survive without mine. That's probably one of the most important lessons my parents taught me. Keep your friends near. There will be times when you can't see them as often, when you live such different lives and opsticals are standing in the way of seeing them. But true friends will be there no matter what. Living abroad has really taught me a great deal about myself and those around me. I know my friends are there for me no matter what country I'm in. When I go back home it's like I never left. Friends will see you through the good times, they will pick you up and carry you when you're down and they will share all the experiences with you. For what would I life be without friends? Happy Sunday guys.


On Wednesday I stayed at a friend's house in Wivenhoe. It was a long time ago I was so far outside London before and it was really lovely and pitioresc. Sometimes you almost forget who stressful it can be living in central London so it was nice to get out of town for a little bit and relax. We sat by the pub with a drink next to the water just chatting and later on we went for dinner in this really cute Italian restaurant. Everyone's so friendly and part of me wanted to stay for much longer.

A'hoy Sailor!

Good Company

Last night precious and I went out for some afterwork, well she's studying so for her it was more of a... normal drinking session? We were both starving when we met up so we decided to fo to Wagamama to satisfy our hunger. Like two stuffed footballs we rolled out of the restarant and headed to one of the most chillaxed bars in The City (and those are hard to come across) After a mojito we decided we are too old to go crazy and went home and watched An Education haha. Very mature though. At 09.30 this morning I was kicked out of bed by this (way too eager for a Saturday) rested person who had a photoshoot to go to. I crawled home and now I'm lazing in my own bed. And I have no intention of getting up.

If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you

I'm so tired. Had to get up at five this morning. You see all these people on the train, sleeping, reading etc. I wonder where they are heading. I will never see them again, do they have an interesting story to tell? We all go on with our lives, too hurried to stop and catch our breathe. Too busy to watch the world around us, how it evolves and changes. And one day we wake up to realise our days on this planet might be up and when then suddenly realise how beautiful, precious and unlimited this life really is.

I always get really philosophical when I'm tired.

In desperate need of a new beginning I felt like I needed a major change. A fresh start I could rely on. Somewhere I could point to and say - this is where my new me started. So I cut my hair. And that makes me one of the nominees to The Sadest Blogpost and Attempt to Change in 2011. Why thank you!

So I went from this

To this:

Or maybe not. But I have read that women who shave of their heads often do it cause they are in need of a new start and by shaving of their hair they feel as if they are starting fresh. Or maybe they are just bored of combing it.

I'm quite pleased with my hair. My lovely hairdresser always listens to all my suggestion (keep in mind I know nothing about cuting hair) and looks at all the pics I bring with me (my entire collection of this years fashion magazines) But the end result is what I wanted. I'm always a bit nervous when I go to the hair dresser. I'm scared I might get hit by a 30 minute crisis, where I turn into someone who thinks green is this seasons it colour and demands it to be permed on one side. And then when my hair dresser has given up on trying to change my mind and finished doing my hair (whilst crying of course) I will snap back into the old me and start crying more than the hair dresser.

With your hands behind your back

I love days when everything just happens for a reason, when they run smoothly and life seems like an easy game. I love when we dance and talk about what matters until the stars tells us it's time to go, morning is here and it's now comes the morning after the night before.

I can't get of the carousel

Good news!

Sunday, 8 May 2011

I just found out my favourite Polski has booked tickets to come and see me in June. Can't wait! Bring back the good ole times!


Everything happens for a reason.
Today will be yesterday's news and what's been done can't be changed.
The important thing is to learn from your experiences and be the best version of yourself.
Find your own hapiness and you shall find your true you.
There are people placed in your life to help you on your way,
cherish every moment you get to spend with loved ones and never forget the ones who made it happened.
Look at every day as a new beginning.

The weather is sweet

Friday, 6 May 2011

So the sun finally managed to come out. It's 22:33 and 20 C in London town. How best to enjoy it, why with a chilled glass of whine and friends of course!

The True You

Feeling really upbeat and positive today. Feels like all the things you want to achieve are within reach if you try your best. Outside the rain is pouring down and I haven't got an umbrella, but who cares. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Go out and make it happen!

Meet Virginia

Thursday, 5 May 2011

She doesn't own a dress
Her hair is always a mess
You catch her stealin' she won't confess

 Smokes a pack a day, but wait, that's me, but anyway
She doesn't care a thing, about that hair
She thinks I'm beautiful
Meet Virginia

Well she wants to live her life
Then she thinks about her life
Pulls her hair back, as she screams
"I don't really wanna live this life"

In spring the entire forest where I live is filled with these wood anemones

Home Sweet Home

Tuesday, 3 May 2011

Back in London again. Feels weird, you know when you've been away sleeping in a different bed, when you wake up the next day back in your own house it takes a while to realise where you are. What surprised me when I came home last night was that it didn't smell funny. I know it sounds weird, but you know when you been away for a while it smells different when you get back. I supposed its because all the doors are closed etc. Aaanyway, I wondered why it didn't and first I was worried someone might have been in my house. Then I saw I'd accidentally left a bowl of grapes in my bedroom. Obviously, because I've been away for a while they were a wee bit dry (Thought I'd save you from showing a picture of it). Some people leave dry flowers etc aka pout pourri around the house as an air freshener. Could that work with dry fruit as well?

Anyway, so I'm back in London. It feels weird but then again it always feels a bit strange in the beginning, it takes a while to readjust. Going to the gym this afternoon, haven't been for a while now since I've been away. I'm scared to admit it but I'm actually looking forward to it. Kinda. Or maybe I'm just jet lagged.

Goodbye Gothenburg!

¿Que Pasa?

Sunday, 1 May 2011

On Friday two gorgeous ladies and I had dinner at Que Pasa. The food and service was so bad, it was seriously a joke! If you ever visit Gothenburg- do not under any circumstances go there. Ha! Even though the food and drinks weren't good we still had a fun night. Keeping in touch with childhood/school friends is so important. They are the ones who know you best, they have been there through the ups and the downs and you will always have memories to cherish with them. Unfortunately it was the last night I could spend with my ladies, time is always tight when I come to visit Gothenburg and tomorrow I'm going back to London. Really wish I could stay longer this time.

The souerest Mojito I've ever had

The mussel dish sounded amazing on the menu but it was far too blaah


Last Sunday it was my fab friend Emelie's 23rd birthday. Because I'd kept my arrival to Gothenburg a secret I surprised her on her doorstep. It was a great night with lots of laughter and silliness. Emelie is someone I went to school with so it was great to catch up since we rarely get to see each other, with me living in London and her studying in Gothenburg.
