Disgusting Cupcakes

Yesterday was Iris names day. We thought we should celebrate this by decorating and eating a ton of cupcakes. With all that frosting, sugarpaste and sprinkles, they turned out to be a bit disgusting. Too sugary... Won't be making any more... But we had fun making them

Project: Ceiling lamp

Now that we have these amazing stucco and high ceiling, we should have some nice lamps. Since one of my favorites is way too expensive, I've decided to make one my self. Image of original lamp by Challieres:

Building a home

The move went smooth and all my stuff is finally out of the storage. We been drilling holes in walls, painting and moving things around. On night we went a bit spending crazy and placed bids on the Swedish version of eBay. I'm got really happy when I won the bidding on a pair of gold plated bedside lamps! And a bit surprised that David got excited too.

The return of the cardboard boxes

You might say I'm quite used to live surrounded by moving boxes. Not my favourite but this time, will be the last! When I got back from Gothenburg I moved in to my boyfriends small apartment. Luckily we got the news that a big apartment in the same building was up for grabs! We didn't hesitate one second! Yes, it's a 2 bedroom apartment, 90 square meters of pure magic! Kitchen and bathroom renovated recently, all walls crispy white, the stucco carefully kept in all rooms. I mean, the master bedroom is bigger than D's livingroom! The big moving day is Oct 1:st and I cannot wait to free all my stuff from the rented storage space. See you at the housewarming party!

Enjoying summer

Summer is the best! Although my kind of vacation isn't what I chose, I'm really enjoying it. I've been unemployed since the 1:st of June and so far I'm okay with it. Maybe it's a bit presumptuous of me in this day and age. I've been to a couple of interviews and they all went really well so I'm not that stressed about the situation right now. The only thing I am stressed about is living with my boyfriend in his studio apartment, 42 square meters. Sometimes I get a bit claustrophobic but it wears off quite quickly. Hopefully we'll find something a bit bigger soon. On the upside, the rent is low!

Things I won't be wearing this summer.

You could probably debate whether its summer or not, it hasn't been warmer than 18°C the last month but I'm still hopeful. I had one of my best summers last year. The weather was great, I got the chance to do lots of fun things and I got a great tan! Sticking with the shallowness of summer; summer fashion. Loving the long-awaited bright colours, the pastels and breezy skirts. But there is some items I wouldn't be caught dead in:
- Bright-coloured chinos or jeans. We call them "framgångsjeans", loosely translated as success pants in derogatory way.
- Short shorts. I just can't. Let's face it: there's only a handful of ladies that actually get away with it. And I don't.
- Your underwear showing. Why?
- The no-sleeve jeans shirt, especially the ones that look like you cut off the arms yourself. The opposition towards cut offs can also apply to shorts.

Did I get it all? What's your summer don't?

Going home

Due to some events that I couldn't foresee I'll be moving back to Malmö soon. The agency lost a client only I was working with. I thought about staying in Gothenburg and find a new job here but I miss my family too much. I knew going in to this relocating-Gothenburg-thing would take a toll on me. Moving to a new city, new job, no friends. Friends I was sure to find, it would just take some time. And I have met some. But during this 6 month period my heart just couldn't settle down. I actually feel happy returning home.
