The Secret World of Arrietty.


I watched “The Secret World of Arrietty” yesterday night.

I actually wanted to see it when it had premiered but then I probably forgot since I didn't see it until now.

However, it was such a beautiful movie! ♥
And the soundtrack was also very beautiful and I have to get it so I can listen to it whenever I want.

I would want to see a second movie about what happened to Arrietty and her family after this movie ended but I haven't read anything about a second movie so as far as I know it won't be a second movie. But if you haven't seen this movie yet and you like movies like this, I really recommend that you watch this movie!

Happy Mother's Day to my Mom who's the best Mom in the world! ♥

Today it's Mother's Day in Sweden.



Congratulations to Sweden & Loreen! ♥


CONGRATULATIONS to Sweden & Loreen who won Eurovision Song Contest 2012! ♥

We (Sweden) won the Eurovision Song Contest 2012!
CONGRATULATIONS to Loreen who now officially are the best! ♥

I'm really happy that Loreen won because she really deserved to win! Loreen seems to be such a genuine sweet person and she's really unique and obviously her song “Euphoria” is amazing so this was a well deserved win for Loreen and Sweden this year!

Loreen/Sweden won the contest with a total of 372 points and Sweden recieved points from every country in Europe except Italy. This is the 5th time Sweden wins Eurovision Song Contest!

Eurovision Song Contest 2013 will be held here in Sweden and hopefully I can get a ticket to watch ESC 2013 live!


Eurovision Song Contest 2012.


The finale of Eurovison Song Contest 2012 is taking place on this Saturday, May 26.

I haven't watched the semi-finales because I don't like the show that much and there was other TV-series I wanted to see when the semi-finales aired so I couldn't watch them anyway. But obviously I have to watch the real finale and find out who will win Eurovison Song Contest 2012!

I hope that Loreen (Sweden) will win but if she doesn't win, I want Jedward (Ireland) to win!

I don't want Loreen to win just because I live in Sweden. I want her to win because I really like her song (“Euphoria”) and I've wanted her to win from the beginning when she was competing in “The Melody Festival(the competition where people vote on who will compete for Sweden in ESC) and she did. So I really hope that she'll win the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 as well and I think she have a chance to win it since her song is so good!

I listened to Jedward's song (“Waterline”) for the first time at Thursday and it's also a good song so if Loreen don't win I would want Jedward to win! I actually wanted them to win last year but I think their song this year is even better and I know that they have a good chance to win as well because their song is good and they have a lot of fans who will vote for them. Anyway, I'll be happy as long as either Loreen or Jedward wins!

Who do you want to win the Eurovision Song Contest 2012?


120525 - Strawberries & ice cream.


When we had finished having dinner at the Chinese restaurant me and my mom bought strawberries and daim ice cream at the grocery-store which we ate when we got home. The ice cream had already melted when we got home so that's a proof of how warm the weather was today!



120525 - Dinner on my Graduation day.

Since it's my “Graduation day” today I chose to celebrate it with having dinner at a Chinese restaurant.
So it was me and my mom and then my dad, my aunt, my cousin Elin & my cousin's dad came here to have dinner together with us to celebrate my graduation.

We had a really nice time together at the restaurant for some hours, or at least I had. ♥

My Mom and Aunt's starters.

My Mom and Elin (my cousin) took the same dish for dinner.

My dinner: Fried shrimps with curry sauce (and rice of course).

My desert: ice cream with chocolate sauce.



120525 - Graduation presents.


I got 2 gifts from my Mom...

I got this Miranda Tatty Graduation/Student bear! ♥
I had told her that I wanted it after I'd seen it in a store some weeks ago.

I also got this book “Eld(Fire) which is the second book and continuation on “Cirkeln(The Circle).
I obviously wanted the book because I really liked the first book and I want to know what will happen and I actually thought that maybe my Mom will buy this book for me as a present and she did!

I also got this card from my aunt, cousin and my cousin's dad wishing me congratulations on my graduation and they also gave me money which I really appreciate. They gave it to me when they got here because we all went out to eat dinner together to celebrate my graduation.



120525 - My Graduation day!


Today is not a ordinary Friday because...
Today is my graduation day!

Today is the day when I finally graduate from high school so with this blog-post I just want to say: CONGRATULATIONS TO MYSELF!!! ♥

The only thing that's left for me to do is to have a grade-conversation with my teachers and of course to get my final grades. But except that I'm 100% finished with high school!

If you don't know me you might be wondering why I'm graduating from high school this “late” when you normally graduate from high school when you're 18 or 19 years old. So the reason why I'm graduating this year is because I've switched high schools 2 times (so I've gone to 3 different high schools) and after that I was home sick for about a ½ year and after that I begun studying on a municipal adult education in March 2010 and now I'm done today in May 2012.

The image in this blog-post is the same image as one in my previous blog-post, but I used it again since it's very suiting for this blog-post and since I won't have a “real graduation” in a school with a graduation cap I couldn't upload a photo of myself with a graduation cap since I won't have one.

❝The Suite Life on Deck❞ - “Graduation on Deck”.

In the series finaleGraduation on Deck:
When Mr. Tipton sells the ship, Zack (Dylan Sprouse), Cody (Cole Sprouse), London (Brenda Song) and Bailey (Debby Ryan) find themselves embarking on separate journeys after graduation.

Maya (Zoey Deutch) accepts a Peace Corps assignment in Africa and breaks up with Zack, while Cody and Bailey are anxious about their relationship surviving through college.

As they explore plans for the next chapter in their lives, relationships are tested but they realize distance cannot overcome the strong bond formed between them.❞

The Suite Life on Deck”'s series finale premiered on May 6, 2011 in the US but I hadn't seen the whole finale episode until tonight when I watched it on Disney Channel. I recognized some parts of the finale episode so I think I have seen half of the episode before but I hadn't seen the whole episode until tonight. 

I haven't really followed every single episode of the series on Disney Channel so that's why I hadn't seen it before + that I live in Sweden so I would obviously have seen the finale episode later than the US anyway. But it's better late than never, right?!

Anyway, I liked the episode but it was a little sad to watch it. I don't know if I'm easily touched or if the episode really was sad because I felt like I was going to cry more than one time while I was watching the episode or maybe it was just because I realized that it was the finale episode and that it wouldn't be anymore episodes after this episode.

I would have wanted to know exactly what happened to Zack and Cody, what they really did after the graduation since we didn't get to know any of their plans. But besides that I really liked the episode and I will definitely miss the show! I've been liking Zack and Cody since I first saw them in “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” so there's no surprise to me that I will miss them and the shows. And yes, I'm talking about Zack and Cody like they were real persons and not characters. I will keep watching the show even if it's over and I will always love it! ♥



❝Beauty and the Beast❞.

Beauty and the Beast” is an upcoming American television series based on the 1980s CBS series of the same name. It was picked up by The CW on May 11, 2012, and is scheduled to premiere this fall.

STORYLINE
The show centers on Catherine (Kristin Kreuk), a tough-minded NYPD Homicide Detective haunted by witnessing her mother’s murder nine years ago and the killers’ quick demise at the hands of a Beast. After years of searching, Catherine finally finds the Beast, Vincent Koslow (Jay Ryan), the survivor of a military experiment that went disastrously wrong, and becomes the protector of his secret life as a bestial superhero.


I will give this new TV-series a chance since it's a “Beauty and the Beast” story (and the original movie is one of my favorites!) and I've also liked Kristin Kreuk ever since I first saw her in “Smallville” and she plays the lead character in this new TV-series so I have to watch it because of her too.

I hope that the TV-series will turn out to be good so it will live up to it's name!


120524 - Happy 8th Birthday, Celeborn! ♥


HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my beloved cat Celeborn who turn 8 years old today! ♥

8 cat-years is about 58 human-years according to this site so somehow Celeborn is older than both my Mom and Dad in human-years, which is crazy. Obviously he's not older than them for real since he was born in 2004 but anyway, it's still crazy how 8 cat-years can be 58 human-years.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY
again to my beloved baby Celeborn who will always be a baby to me! ♥
He's the best cat and pet I could ever ask for and I'm so happy that my Dad decided to buy him to me in August 2004 (so Celeborn was about 3 months when we bought him), he's the best birthday present I've ever got!

I love my baby so much and even though there's this saying that “dogs are a human's best friend” I have to disagree with it and say that Celeborn is definitely my best friend! ♥

❝Mako Mermaids❞.


Mako Mermaids, a big-budget spin-off from kids series H20: Just Add Water, is set to air on TEN.

Filming on the $12.3 million series began on the Gold Coast on May 8th.

Mako Mermaids centers on three mermaids, Sirena, Nixie and Lyla, ‘who are charged with the task of protecting their magical Mako Island from trespassers, only to be thwarted by the arrival of a 16 year-old land-dweller Zac – who forms a special connection with the island and is granted a fish-like tail and amazing powers. Threatened by his existence, the mermaid pod are forced to move away, abandoning Sirena, Nixie and Lyla, who in a bid for survival must get legs, venture onto land, and take back Zac’s powers – or risk being outcasts forever.’

In the lead roles are Lucy Fry (Lightning Point, Reef Doctors), Ivy Latimer (Me & My Monsters, All Saints, Home & Away, Love My Way) and newcomer Amy Ruffle. Chai Romruen plays merman, Zac.

The 26 half-hour series from prolific producer Jonathan M. Shiff is directed by Evan Clarry and Grant Brown. Filming began just days after Reef Doctors, another JMS production, wrapped.

Lisa McCune and our wonderful cast have delivered an extraordinary series showcasing a grand adventure set against Australia’s tropical north. Now we are thrilled to commence immediate production on our next series. Children all over the world love mermaids – but now a merman opens up a whole new world of fantasy and action.”❞

MAIN CHARACTERS
ZAC (CHAI ROMRUEN): Zac is 16 years old and is the main character and he goes camping at Mako Island and gets attacked by Sirena, Nexie and Lyla which causes him to become a merman. His powers are Telekinesis/Hydrokinesis.
LYLA (LUCY FRY): Lyla and her mermaid friends, Sirena and Nexie watch everything Zac does on Mako Island. They attack him which causes him to become a merman. She has the powers of Substanciakinesis/Aerokinesis.
NIXIE (IVY LATIMER): Nexie and her mermaid friends, Sirena and Lyla watch everything Zac does on Mako Island. They attack him which causes him to become a merman. She has the powers to do Cryokinesis/Gelidkinesis.
SIRENA (AMY RUFFLE): Sirena and her mermaid friends, Nexie and Lyla watch everything Zac does on Mako Island. They attack him which causes him to become a merman. She has the powers of Hydro-Thermokinesis/Gelidkinesis.

Just like the article above says, “Mako Mermaids” is a spin-off series from the series “H2O: Just Add Water”.

H2O: Just Add Water” was and still is one of my favorite TV-series and I was so sad when it ended. I would have loved having a 4th season but unfortunately it seems like it won't be any.

But anyway, since I loved “H2O: Just Add Water” I simply have to watch the spin-off series “Mako Mermaids”when it premiers. It won't be the same story as in “H2O: Just Add Water” but it will still be about mermaids and Mako Island so it seems promising!

They just started filming the series on Tuesday this week (May 8) so it will probably be a while until the series premiers but I will update again when I know the premiere date.

120510 - Sisterhood Everlasting.


I also got this new book Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares today! ♥

It's the fifth and last book of “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” book series! I love that book series and they're all among my favorite books, so obviously I had to buy this fifth and last book of the series!

I didn't even know that Ann Brashares would write a fifth book so I got really surprised when I saw this book because I thought that the fourth book was the last book. But apparently I was wrong and here is the fifth and last book!

The only difference with this fifth book is that it's taking place 10 years later so I guess it's supposed to be 10 years after the fourth book ended. So they're all 10 years older now.

I look forward to read this fifth and last book and I hope that it will be as good as the other four previous books. I've unfortunately read a huge spoiler online about the book but I will try to not think about it until I read the actual book.



120510 - The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 DVD.


Today I finally got my The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 DVD! ♥

I've been wanting to get it since I first saw the movie but I never see it in the stores or anything so I had to order it online. And now I finally have it! I obviously have the first movie as well (+ all the books!).

Hello Kitty airplane.


My brother sent this picture to me on Facebook since he know that I'm obsessed with Hello Kitty (who doesn't know that?!) but I have already seen this airplane before, of course. But it was nice of him to send the picture to me anyway!

I would love to travel in this Hello Kitty airplane some day if I get the chance! ♥

120506 - Johanna's birthday.

Today me and Angelica went home to Johanna (just like I said we would in my previous blog-post) to celebrate her 23rd birthday!

When we had arrived to Johanna we had both chocolate cake and cheesecake that she had baked on her own. I only ate the chocolate cake though because it's the same chocolate cake that she baked some years ago for her birthday and I still remembered how good it tasted and I'm still in love with it so I just had to eat it! Haha. I've even told my Mom about that delicious chocolate cake and I'm getting the recipe from Johanna so I can bake it myself some day. Yum!

After we had eaten some cake and talked for some hours we went to a food store to buy some dinner since it was dinner-time. Me and Johanna both bought a pizza each and Angelica bought chicken wings and feta cheese! I've never seen someone only eating chicken with feta cheese but it was probably more delicious than it looked (even though I don't even eat chicken but I'm sure you get my point, I eat feta cheese though).

I took some photos of Johanna's balcony because I think it's nicely decorated. We need to hang out there some day! You can see me in the window on the photos of the plants, but pretend that you can't.

Johanna is so nice! ♥ It's her birthday but she gave both me and Angelica a bag with candy and 2 movies each! I think she have misunderstood something because she's the one who's supposed to get presents on her birthday, she's not supposed to give us presents! Haha, I'm obviously just kidding but I just think that it's so nice of her to give us something when it's her birthday! ♥ I got the movies “Me & Orson Welles” and “The Prince & Me: The Elephant Adventure”. I haven't seen those 2 movies so it will be fun to watch them some day.

When it was after 10PM (22:00) we decided to go home since it started to get late and Angelica was going to take the bus who went a ½ hour later. So we said goodbye to Johanna and went home.

When I got home I just read a magazine I also bought at the food store when we were there and I also watched 2 episodes of “Alcatraz” that they showed on TV since I had missed them when they went on their original time. After that I went to bed and finished reading “Dead to the World(Sookie Stackhouse #4).

Finally I just want to thank Johanna for inviting us to celebrate her birthday with her! ♥
I hope that she had a good birthday and that her birthday-wishes will come true! And of course that we get to know each other for many more years so we can celebrate more birthday's together! ♥



120506 - Happy Birthday, Johanna! ♥


Today on May 6 is my friend Johanna's 23rd birthday! ♥

Me and Angelica are going to her home in about 2 hours to celebrate her birthday! I already know that we'll have a good time together and I hope that Johanna will enjoy her birthday as well! ♥

And now I just want to say...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JOHANNA! ♥

I borrowed the 2 photos of Johanna from her Facebook but I'm sure she don't mind.



120504 - My Mom's birthday. ♥

HomeMint - Get VIP access!

❝The 31-year-old entertainer is teaming up with stylist and his longtime interior designer, Estee Stanley, for a new collection of home goods and art they co-designed and curated for HomeMint.

I like very clean, almost modern architecture, and the obstacle with something like that is making it extremely warm, because it doesn’t naturally lend itself to that. With everything we do together, we try to get the juxtaposition right. To make pieces and rooms that are multifaceted, that blend different genres of architecture and design,Justin told ElleDecor.com, which got a preview of some of the pieces.

The line will be available early May on HomeMint.com.❞


I just became a Ambassador which means that I have early VIP access to HomeMint!
Do you want to join the VIP list as well?

120502 - Shopping with Angelica.

Angelica called me today and asked me if I wanted to go shopping with her and I said yes. So I waited until she got her and then we went downtown and visited 9 different stores!

I bought new sunglasses from Lindex that I saw last week when me and Angelica were there but I didn't buy them then so I bought them now instead. I also bought a Hello Kitty fleece plaid and a Hello Kitty toothbrush that I simply had to buy!

I already have another Hello Kitty toothbrush (surprise, surprise, haha) but that one doesn't have a Hello Kitty figure like this new one have so I had to buy it! Haha.

VOTE FOR HARRY POTTER @ MTV MOVIE AWARDS 2012!

MTV Movie Awards 2012 is on Sunday June 3, 2012 and the voting opened today!

I'm going to write what I've already written on my Twitter and on my Facebook:

PLEASE VOTE FOR THE HARRY POTTER CAST & THE LAST HARRY POTTER MOVIE!

» VOTE HERE «

This is probably the last time the Harry Potter cast (as their Harry Potter characters obviously) and the last Harry Potter movie will be nominated so they really deserve to win what they're nominated for! So I really hope that they do win everything they're nominated for. But it would obviously help them to win if all the Harry Potter fans voted for them in every category they're nominated in and also spread the word about it. So please vote for them in every category they're nominated in (you can vote more than once) and spread the word so they will win!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” picked up 6 nominations. ♥
