141224 - Merry Christmas!


I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! ♥


Moomin mugs & scissor.

Today I got 4 new Moomin mugs to my collection and a Moomin scissor from a iittala Outlet store.

The Moomin mugs I got are the orange with Hattifatteners, dark blue with Moominpappa, green with Sniff and blue with Snufkin. And the scissor is blue and orange with Little My.

We've had a iittala Outlet store near our home for about a year now but apparently it's a seasonal store so now after a year they're going to close the store and another store will probably open at the same place. Since the store is going to close they're having a SALE right now and they had a 4 for 3 offer so I got 4 Moomin mugs for the price of 3 and I also got the scissor of course.

Nivea Advent calendar contest.

My Mom was nice and picked up this Nivea kit from the post-office today that I also won last week.

The Nivea kit consists of 1 Creme Care Shower Cream, 1 Express Hydration Body Lotion and 1 Dry Comfort Deodorant.

I will definitely use the Shower Cream when my current shower cream is out. I may use the deodorant just to see how it's like and if it really lasts for 48 hours but I doubt that it's better than the deodorant I always use (which is Bats from Apoteket) because I think that's the best deodorant out there. I honestly never use body lotion and I don't even own any so I'm not sure if I'm going to try this one or not but otherwise I'll obviously give it to someone so it won't go to waste.

I won this Nivea kit in the Advent calendar on Sannas Rum.


Gourmet Advent calendar contest.

Last week I got two surprises in the mailbox on two different days.
First I got a Gourmet bag-holder and then I got a Gourmet butter-knife.
 
Both of the items aren't really any must-have items but you can definitely use them anyway. I'll probably put the bag-holder in my bag when I'm going somewhere so I can use it and the butter-knife I've already put in our cutlery kitchen drawer so we will obviously use that in our kitchen.
 
I've won both these items from the Gourmet Advent calendar. Their Advent calendar are for you and your cat but these two items were obviously for me and I've unfortunately not won anything for Pika so far.


“Insurgent” - Trailer.


One choice can transform you-or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris must continue trying to save those she loves--and herself--while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love. Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable--and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships. Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

Starring Shailene Woodley as Beatrice 'Tris' Prior, Theo James as Four, Octavia Spencer as Johanna, Jai Courtney as Eric, Ray Stevenson as Marcus Eaton, Zoe Kravitz as Christina, Miles Teller as Peter, Ansel Elgort as Caleb, Maggie Q as Tori Wu, Mekhi Phifer as Max, Daniel Dae Kim as Jack Kang, Naomi Watts as Evelyn and Kate Winslet as Jeanine.

“Pelle Svanslös” - Christmas Calendar.

 Yesterday I got my “Pelle Svanslös JulkalendernDVD.
It's the “Pelle SvanslösChristmas calendar that went on SVT in 1997.

Every year there's a new Christmas calendar that airs on the TV-channel SVT 1 here in Sweden. From December 1 to December 24 they show a new episode from the Christmas calendar both in the morning and in the evening and it's obviously a way to count down to Christmas.

I always watched the Christmas calendar every year while I grew up but during the past years it just seems to keep getting worse and worse so I haven't really bothered watching it every year. This year the Christmas calendar takes place in another warm country so it probably won't contain any snow or winter which is really weird to me and I don't understand what they were thinking by making a Christmas calendar like that. Since Sweden do get snow and winter every year it's really weird to me that they wouldn't include that in the Christmas calendar since it has a lot to do with Christmas here. I know I haven't even seen it but a Christmas calendar without any snow and winter just isn't a worthy Christmas calendar to me.

Anyway, Pelle Svanslös Julkalendern is my favorite Christmas calendar so I've been watching it this year instead. So far I've watched it on the computer but now I'm going to watch it on TV since I got my DVD yesterday and now I can watch it every year in the future as well. It have been such a nice tradition to watch the Christmas calendar every year while I grew up so it would be really nice to continue that tradition and I will continue that tradition by watching Pelle Svanslös Julkalendern every December in the future. I may watch the real Christmas calendar as well if it seems to be good that year but otherwise I'll just watch Pelle Svanslös Julkalendern every year.

If you were too young when Pelle Svanslös Julkalendern aired or if you just haven't seen it, I really recommend it!


Disney Lip Smacker.

On Saturday me and my Mom did some Christmas shopping
When we were done with the shopping we went to Lindex where I found the Disney Lip Smacker that I wrote about earlier. They don't have it on their website anymore so I wrote to the customer service earlier in the week and asked if my closest store had it in stock and they answered that they didn't have it in stock, but when me and my Mom was outside of the store I went in anyway to see for myself if they had it and they had more than one left so I'm happy that I went in the store to see for myself because now I finally own it.

This Disney Lip Smacker set is a Party Pack with 8 lip smackers with 8 of the Disney Princesses.
Pink/Rapunzel, in flavor Magical Glow Berry. Baby Pink/Sleeping Beauty/Aurora, in flavor Spun Sugar Shine. Yellow/Belle, who's my #1 favorite Disney Princess, in flavor Tea Party Treats. Lime Green/Tiana, in flavor Fresh Kiwi Pie. Purple/Ariel, in flavor Calypso Berry. Blue/Cinderella, in flavor Vanilla Sparkle. Mint Green/Jasmine, in flavor Berry Magic. Red/Snow White, in flavor Cherry Kiss.


“Cinderella” - Trailer.


A live-action retelling of the classic fairy tale about a servant step-daughter who wins the heart of a prince.

“The story of Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella whose merchant father remarries following the tragic death of her mother. Keen to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother Lady Tremaine and her daughters Anastasia and Drizella into the family home. But, when Ella's father suddenly and unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella since she used to work in the cinders, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother's dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who abuse her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an employee at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears as if her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella's hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit”. Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand as a kindly beggar woman steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella's life forever.”

Starring Lily James as Cinderella, Helena Bonham Carter as Fairy Godmother, Richard Madden as Prince Charming, Hayley Atwell as Cinderella's Mother, Ben Chaplin as Cinderella's Father, Cate Blanchett as Lady Tremaine, Holliday Grainger as Anastasia, Sophie McShera as Drizella, Derek Jacobi as The King and Stellan Skarsgård as Grand Duke.

Sign now & help Save the Arctic.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT. SIGN NOW. SAVE THE ARCTIC.

Ask world leaders to create a global sanctuary in the uninhabited area around the North Pole, and a ban on oil drilling and destructive fishing in Arctic waters. SIGN the petition to join the movement of millions who know that the Arctic affects all of us - and must be protected by us all.

BLOGFAME WILL DONATE 5 SEK TO GREENPEACE FOR EVERY SIGNATURE!

DEFEND POLAR BEARS
The Arctic is home to incredible wildlife, from majestic polar bears to blubbery walruses and mysterious narwhals. But all Arctic species depend on sea ice to survive, and the ice is vanishing with terrifying speed. Without sea ice to hunt, rest, and breed, the very survival of polar bears and other wildlife is under threat. Mother polar bears, weak and starving, have trouble reproducing. Their cubs must fight the odds to survive into adulthood. Unless we take action soon, experts warn that polar bears could disappear completely from the Arctic in the next 100 years. Act now to protect their home.

STOP OIL SPILLS
A new Arctic oil rush has begun. Reckless companies like Shell, Gazprom, Statoil, and Exxon want to invade the fragile Arctic, risking a devastating oil spill for only three years worth of oil. If oil companies are allowed to drill in one of the world's most extreme, isolated, and unpredictable environments, a deadly oil spill is not a question of if - but when. Toxic oil could leak unchecked beneath the ice for years, polluting the lands and livelihoods of people who have called the Arctic home for millennia. An oil spill would have a catastrophic, long-term impact on the entire Arctic ecosystem. Act now to stop an oil spill in the Arctic before it starts.

SAVE OUR PLANET
The Arctic is the world's air conditioner, but amid global climate change it's warming twice as fast as the rest of the world. In the last 30 years 75% of the summer sea ice volume has disappeared. The ice at the top of the world reflects much of the sun’s heat back into space and keeps our whole planet cool, stabilizing the weather systems that we depend on to grow our food. But because of dirty fossil fuel energy, the Arctic could soon be completely ice-free in summer. Icemelt would contribute to rising sea levels, disrupt global weather patterns, and make warming happen faster. This would be devastating not only for the people and animals who live in the region - but for the rest of us too. Protecting the Arctic means protecting us all.

141210 - “The Hobbit 3” premiere.

Today is the “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” premiere here in Sweden! ♥
 
Since it's December 10 today it's also my name day (Malin) but most people probably knows December 10 as the Nobel Day. So congratulations to me on my name day and congratulations to all the Nobel Winners, especially Malala Yousafzai who's the youngest person to ever recieve the Nobel Peace Price!

I'm obviously going to see the movie today on the premiere and I'm going to see it with my Brother and my Dad. We're also going to eat dinner somewhere before we're going to the cinema, to celebrate my name day like I said to my Dad, haha. But we obviously would have had dinner before the movie even if it weren't my name day.

Will any of you also be going to the premiere in Sweden today or will you see the movie some other day?


Ariana Grande - Santa Tell Me.



141206 - Saturday's shopping.

Yesterday I bought a Disney Princess sports bottle and a Disney Princess lunch box from ÖB.
I'm a big Disney fan and I really liked them so I obviously had to buy them. I've been wanting to buy them ever since I first saw them in a advertisement bulletin some week ago so I'm happy that they were still available in the store so I could buy them.

I also got a new office chair from JYSK. My Mom paid for it and it will be one of my Christmas presents this year.
I've been talking about getting a new office chair for some weeks now since I saw that JYSK is having a SALE on all of their office chairs right now and of course it's always better to buy something when it's on SALE than having to pay the original prize. Since I'm spending a lot of time in front of the computer it's preferable and important to have a good office chair to sit in so it was definitely about time that I got a new one that's much better. My previous office chair was just plain with a straight seat and backrest and it's not very good when you're sitting down for a long time and I think something under the seat was broken as well. So I'm happy with my new office chair and now I don't have to buy a new one in the future when I get my own home because now I already have a good one.

We also bought our first Christmas root beer for this year! ♥ So right now we have a stock of 9 bottles (1,5L) with Christmas root beer here at home. I haven't had any Christmas root beer yet this year so I look forward to drink some soon. Do you guys also like to drink Christmas root beer during Christmas?


141207 - Second Advent.

Today is Second Advent!

Today it's only 2 weeks and 3 days left to Christmas Eve. ♥

Isn't it the best and cutest Christmas sweater ever?! ♥
