130513 - My sunglasses.
Today I also stopped by the optician Synoptik to see if my sunglasses were ready.
They weren't waiting for me in the store but the woman who worked there asked me if she should go and check their postbox and there they were. When I bought my new glasses I got to choose a pair of sunglasses for free!
That's a campaign that Synoptik are having now, so anyone who buys new glasses there will get to pick a pair of sunglasses for free. They're also showing their campaign on TV commercials and there they're saying that you get to choose a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses, but you actually get to choose a pair of sunglasses up to a certain prize so you don't have to choose Ray Ban if you don't want to.
I obviously looked at the sunglasses and not on the brands because I don't care about brands when it comes to glasses, I only care about how they look like. My sunglasses are from Björn Borg and I'm really happy with them! They're black with gray glass (the darkest glass that was available) and the sidepiece are black with a bit of purple as you can see on the photos above.
It's really great to finally have a pair of sunglasses I actually can see with! Haha.
I've only owned regular sunglasses before so whenever I've wanted to wear sunglasses I've had to have contact-lenses on, so I haven't wore sunglasses that often since I rarely have contact-lenses on.
And apparently my eyes are sensitive to light and that's why I have big pupils (the optician told me this when she checked my eyes), so I should actually wear sunglasses whenever it's sunny outside. The optician also asked me if I've noticed that my eyes are sensitive to light, which I've obviously noticed since my eyes more or less scream “bright light, bright light!” like the Gremlins whenever it's sunny outside. My eyes also tear up really easy when it's sunny outside even if I don't look at the sun directly. I don't know if that have anything to do with my eyes being sensitive, but anyway, my new sunglasses will definitely help my sensitive eyes a lot!
I've already wore my new sunglasses when I went home from Synoptik today.
130513 - Rilakkuma phone case.
Today I went to the post-office and picked up my package with this Rilakkuma phone case! ♥
I've liked Rilakkuma for some years now, ever since I first discovered it. How can you not like it when Rilakkuma is so cute?! For those of you who don't know, Rilakkuma is a Japanese character produced by the company San-X and Rilakkuma is really popular in Asian countries.
I first discovered this Rilakkuma phone case some year ago when I saw photos of people and some celebrities who had it on their mobile, and I've wanted a phone case like this since then. I got my first real android mobile (Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini) in the end of January, so that's why I haven't bought one until now. It would have been really unnecessary to buy it sooner since it wouldn't even have fitted my mobile, haha.
I chose to get my phone case in light pink because I thought that was the cutest one, but the case is available in a lot of different colors. I chose between light pink, brown (which is the original Rilakkuma color) and light brown/nude but I ended up with the light pink.
These Rilakkuma phone cases are really popular in both Asia and the US (that I know of), so you will definitely be able to buy it online if you want one for your mobile. I bought mine from Amazon UK.
130510 - Hello Kitty backpack.
Today I picked up my package with my Hello Kitty backpack!
I think it looks better than most backpacks do, because most backpacks are just in one color or just looks kind of boring. But this is black, which always looks good, and Hello Kitty which right away makes it look better (in my eyes anyway) and it also looks more fun and unique whether you like Hello Kitty or not.
I didn't have any backpack before I got this one, and I've been wanting this Hello Kitty backpack ever since the VANS' Hello Kitty collection came out, and now I finally got it. This Hello Kitty backpack is from the VANS' Hello Kitty Summer Collection 2012 which I also bought my shoes from.
I mainly use handbags and purses, which probably don't come as a surprise, but sometimes it's good to have a backpack. When you're going for a trip somewhere, on a concert or something, it's good to have a backpack and have everything you need in there. When you're going to be away for hours it's better to carry things on your back. Actually it's best to always use a backpack, but I think there's many of us girls who don't take that advice.
Anyway, now I have a backpack and I can already think of some days when it will come in handy!

I've been growing up with The Sims and I've been playing the games since I was a kid.
The Sims came out 2000 and I got my first game as a birthday present that year or the year after, so I've been playing it since I was 10 or 11 years old. And when The Sims 4 is released I will be 23 or 24 years old!
I think that The Sims 3 is great so I'm curious to see how they will make it even better with The Sims 4.
Are any of you The Sims fans as well?

130505 - My new alarm clock.
Today me and my Mom bought this new alarm clock for me, since the one I had before just stopped working all of a sudden. I just wanted a normal alarm clock with radio but then I saw this one which we bought instead.
This alarm clock is a “wake-up light”. Which means that the light will increase gradually 15 or 30 minutes before the installed wake-up time. The alarm is gradually increasing with radio, summerton or nature sounds (birdsong, wave sound, jungle sound or thunderstorm).
I've chosen the wave sound as my alarm and I've set the light so it will increase gradually 15 minutes before the wake-up time.
MY OPINION ABOUT THE CLOCK:
Now when I'm writing this blog-post, it's actually May 14, but we bought the alarm clock on May 5 so that's why I'm posting it on this day. I've also had time to try the alarm clock now and I just read some about the clock on the website of the store we bought the alarm clock from. I can say that the sound of the clock is pretty loud and I don't even have the highest sound on my alarm, and it's a bit high for the wave sound so I might have to set a lower sound or change the actual alarm because wave sound is supposed to be relaxing but it's not that relaxing to wake up to a high sound of waves. The light is working like it should, I think, but I haven't noticed it at all. When I get up to turn off the alarm I notice that the light is on but I don't notice it at all before the alarm rings, so I don't wake up from it or anything. I think the point with the light is that you should wake up or start to wake up but that's not working for me anyway. I also read now on the website that only 3 of 8 customers would recommend this clock, from the customers who've written a review on it. My final opinion about it is that it's a good alarm clock for it's prize (it was only 199 SEK), and it works fine and have different wake-up sounds you can choose from. But, the light doesn't work for me at all i.e. I don't wake up from it (or at least it haven't worked so far) and the clock's name is after all “wake-up light” so I don't really think the name suits the clock. I just realized that I've only tried one light though, which was the set light, so I'm going to try the sweeping color display and maybe that will work better. I doubt that it will make me wake up from it though, but the light will probably look more beautiful and I can see it when I have to turn off the alarm, haha.
This is not a sponsored blog-post in any way. I just thought that I could give you my opinion about the clock now when I'm writing this blog-post since I've had time to try it and see how it works.
130504 - Happy Birthday, Mom! ♥
Today is my Mom's birthday! My grandmother, grandfather, aunt, cousin and brother all came here to celebrate her. We had the delicious “princess cake” that's shown in the photo above.
They all got here around 1pm and stayed for some hours. Then my aunt and cousin stayed here for some more hours until the evening. After they drove home around 7pm me and my Mom went down to the closest pizza restaurant and bought 2 pizza's to take with us home and eat for dinner. Then we spent the rest of the evening watching TV. Happy Birthday once again, Mom! ♥
