141130 - First Advent.


Today is the First Advent! 

Today is the day when it's time to decorate your home for Christmas!
We usually decorate our home during the First Advent weekend but before the Sunday or even before the First Advent weekend. This year we put up our Christmas decorations yesterday.

In the future when I live on my own I'll probably Christmas decorate in the beginning of the week so everything is ready some days before First Advent so I have even more days to enjoy it!

Since it's First Advent today it's only 3 weeks and 3 days left to Christmas Eve! ♥

“We teach girls to shrink themselves
To make themselves smaller
We say to girls,
“You can have ambition
But not too much
You should aim to be successful
But not too successful
Otherwise you will threaten the man.”
Because I am female
I am expected to aspire to marriage
I am expected to make my life choices
Always keeping in mind that
Marriage is the most important
Now marriage can be a source of
Joy and love and mutual support
But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage
And we don't teach boys the same?
We raise girls to see each other as competitors
Not for jobs or for accomplishments
Which I think can be a good thing
But for the attention of men
We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings
In the way that boys are
Feminist: the person who believes in the social
Political, and economic equality of the sexes”


Beyoncé - Yoncé.



“The Kingdom of Dreams & Madness” - Trailer.


The Kingdom of Dreams & Madness (“Yume to Kyōki no Ōkoku) documentary premiered in Japan in November last year. The documentary have been shown with English subtitle at some different Film Festivals this month and it will be released on DVD in the UK and US next month.

“Granted near-unfettered access to the notoriously insular Studio Ghibli, director Mami Sunada follows the three men who are the lifeblood of Ghibli – the eminent director Hayao Miyazaki, the producer Toshio Suzuki, and the elusive and influential “other director” Isao Takahata – over the course of a year as the studio rushes to complete two films, Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises and Takahata’s The Tale of the Princess Kaguya. The result is a rare “fly on the wall” glimpse of the inner workings of one of the world’s most celebrated animation studios, and an insight into the dreams, passion and singular dedication of these remarkable creators. Plus you get to meet Ushiko, the adorable Studio Ghibli cat!”

Since I'm a fan of Studio Ghibli I look forward to see this documentary!


141122 - My Saturday & Today's shopping.


Today me and my Mom went to H&M. I found a really cute Christmas sweater on their website yesterday so I wanted to go there to see if they had it in the store so I could buy it but they didn't have it. So I have to order it from their website because I definitely must have it! Isn't it the best Christmas sweater ever?!

After we had finished looking in H&M and didn't find the sweater, we went to Kappahl where I bought 3 items which you can see in the end of the blog-post. Then we went to Åhléns where I bought a Chrismas card that I'll send to a friend who I always exchange Christmas cards with every year and I also bought two small Christmas presents but I'm not going to write what I bought in case any of them would read my blog.

After that we went to Espresso House. I ordered a hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows and a mud-cake with whipped cream and my Mom ordered a cappuccino and a carrot cupcake. Then we went home and tonight we've been watching a movie and I also read the “Behind the scenes at Downton Abbeybook.

I found this hair-clip with a red bow at Kappahl and I had to buy it because it's really cute and it would be perfect to wear during Christmas!

At the same section in the store where I found the bow hair-clip I also found this Frozen pen. It's a ballpoint pen with different colors and you choose which color you want to write with.
 I also bought this Disney Frozen lip smacker pack which comes in a nice metal box. As a Disney and a Frozen fan I obviously couldn't resist to buy the pen and this lip smacker pack. I didn't know these Frozen lip smacker even existed but I'm happy that I found them! I'm planning to buy another Disney lip smacker pack that I've seen on Lindex website and that one is with the Disney Princesses and that's a 8 pack, so I'll have a total of 14 Disney lip smacker when I've bought that. As the big Disney fan I am, I'll be very happy with that collection!


Caterpillar “Colorado” boots.

Yesterday I picked up the package with my Caterpillar boots.

The boots is the Colorado model and I obviously wanted them in black. I ordered them from Spartoo.

I ordered these Caterpillar boots because I didn't have any really good Winter boots and I know that the Caterpillar brand makes boots in a great quality and I will definitely be able to use them this year and for many years in the future.

I've been wanting a pair of good Winter boots ever since my old pair broke some years ago. I really liked those boots but they weren't made by a brand and they were obviously not made in a very good quality since they were able to break after I had only worn them for maybe two years. For the last years after that I've worn a pair of Vagabond ankle boots and they look really nice and there's nothing wrong with them except that I can't use them without getting abrasions so I have to tape my feet during the whole Winter and it's quite annoying to having to do that every time before I go outside.

So this year I decided that I've had enough and that I should finally just order a pair of real Winter boots in a great quality made by a good brand and so I did. I haven't tried the boots yet but they're in my size and I definitely know for sure that I won't have any problem with them. I always used to have these kind of Winter boots (not in the same brand but in the exact same model and style) every year when I were younger and these kind of boots really are the best Winter boots I've ever had so I should have just stuck to it, haha. But at least I have a brand new pair of boots now so now I'm just waiting for the snow to come to Stockholm so I can start wearing them!


141120 - Ticket to Ariana Grande's concert.

Ariana Grande is coming to StockholmSweden on May 21, 2015! ♥

I somehow managed to wake up on my own before any of the alarms on my phone went off so I was ready by the computer at 9am when the tickets were released and I got my ticket so I'm going to her concert!

I went to bed after 2am so I don't know how I could wake up on my own this morning because I definitely need to sleep longer than that and I usually always do sleep longer than that. But I'm not even that tired so I'm up for the day and hopefully I can get a little better day rhythm since I went up early today.
 
Are any of you going to Ariana Grande's concert next year?


141115 - “Mockingjay: Part 1”.

 Today was the “Mockingjay: Part 1” premiere here in Sweden so me and my Brother went to see it at 6pm tonight.

I saw a picture earlier today on the Swedish The Hunger Games Facebook page that “Mockingjay: Part 1” had received 4 out of 5 stars from magazines. And they were definitely right because the movie was great!

I'm obviously a fan of the series, both the books and the movies, and I'm really happy with how the movie turned out and I think they did a great job! I think both fans of the book series + movies and people who have just seen all of the movies will like the movie. My Brother haven't read any of the books and have just seen the movies and he also liked the movie so it gets a good grade from both of us. 

I definitely recommend everyone to go and see “Mockingjay: Part 1”!


Taylor Swift - Blank Space.


Taylor Swift's fifth album 1989was released on October 27, 2014.


Kawaii Box November 2014.


This is the 10 items that was in my Kawaii Box for November 2014.

The “thank you” card.

Pony BrownLittle talk sticky post-it notes, 20 sheets.
I really like cute little post-it notes like these so I'll definitely use them in the future!

A macaron charm.
I don't know what I'm going to use this for but it's very well made with all the different details. Apparently you can open the macaron as well so if you'd like a secret place to hide or store something small, this might be it.

A pink Neko plush key-ring.
This pink cat really looks like PusheenPusheen is a gray cat that's really popular online and the creators behind it post a lot of different animations and I've seen a lot of Pusheen animations during the last years. I love cats so I obviously like Pusheen and this pink little cat is really cute!

A green/pink zipper bracelet.
I've never seen any bracelets like this one before. It's pretty cool and unique but it's not really my style unfortunately.

A pinkOMGkey-ring.
I think some people would like and use this key-ring, but I probably won't use it for anything.

A 1 m Deco Tape roll.
I will probably use this Deco Tape for making cards and use it to decorate presents etc.

A Yoofun Puffy Sticker sheet with Pandas.
I will definitely use these cute Panda stickers! It's nice that they're puffy stickers too and not normal flat stickers.

A Pocky box with chocolate flavour.
Pocky with chocolate flavour! Yummy! I look forward to eat them!

A 2015 Little Sheep Mini Calendar.
I really like this cute mini calendar! As you may be able to see on the second photo, the calendar have a kind of cardboard in the back which makes it able to “stand up” on it's own so it's perfect to put on your desk or on your bedside table or something. The calendar starts this month, November 2014, so you can start using the calendar right away and use it until December 2015.
A pair of My Melody socks.
I like My Melody so I was happy to see these socks, until I saw the size... They're in the Japanese size 23-24 cm which converts to a size 36-37 in European sizes! And the socks are definitely a size 36 or smaller because I put the socks under my foot and my whole heel is outside of the sock, haha. I'm usually a size 40 but sometimes even a size 41 or 42. One time I measured my foot with one of my brother's friends by putting our feet together and they were the same size and he have a size 42, haha. I've always had big feet which is pretty weird since I'm so short (I'm 158 cm) but at least I'm standing steady on the earth! I've read and heard that it's really hard to find shoes in Japan if you have big feet (and even smaller shoe sizes than mine seems to be considered big there from what I've heard about the sizes you can find in most stores) so it would probably be nearly impossible for me to find shoes there. According to Wikipedia I would probably be a size 26 cm in Japanese sizes which converts to a size 40-41 in European sizes. I've never heard about anyone finding shoes in that size in Japan so far so I'll have to see if it's a mission impossible or not when I travel there some time in the future. They definitely make really cute shoes in Japan so I really think they should make them in bigger sizes so everyone would be able to use them. 

I definitely liked the Kawaii Box for November! ♥
The post-it notes, Pusheen key-ring, Panda stickers, Pocky and the Little Sheep mini calendar were my favorites. I also liked the My Melody socks until I discovered the problem with the size, haha.

I wonder if the Kawaii Box for December will have a Christmas theme. Since I love Christmas I think it would be really fun if they did have a Christmas theme but we'll have to wait until next month to find out.

What is Kawaii Box? Every month you get a box filled with a mix of 10-12 unique Japanese and Korean kawaii products. Kawaii Box costs $18,90 per month and shipping is free. Your box is shipped in the beginning of each month.


141115 - “Dumb & Dumber To” + Chinese food.

Tonight me and my Mom went to a Chinese restaurant to have dinner. ♥

After that we went to the cinema to see “Dumb and Dumber To” that premiered here in Sweden on Wednesday. I have seen the first Dumb and Dumber” movie more than one time and it's definitely a good comedy movie. The first movie is already 20 years old by the way, it premiered in 1994 when I was only 4 years old! I also really like Jim Carrey, he's a good comedian and I've liked all of the movies that I've seen with him so far.

I think the movie was okay but I expected it to be so much more funny than it was. I honestly sat in my chair and wondered when the fun would start and when I would start laughing. I don't really think that's a good grade for a comedy movie and it have never happened to me before. Everyone else in the cinema laughed much more than me though so it might just be me who didn't think it was that funny. I don't know what it was, maybe I'm too old for the humor they used in the movie or something, I have no idea. But I definitely expected to get to laugh a lot while watching the movie tonight and unfortunately that never happened. But everyone else in the cinema laughed a lot so you should definitely go and see it if you want to, hopefully you'll also think it's more funny than I did.


Advent Calendars for Christmas 2014.

It's only 2 weeks left of November so it's time to buy a Advent Calendar for December if you want one this year.

I also have some more Advent Calendars on that board like toy calendars etc. which I didn't add in this blog-post so check out the board if you want to see even more Advent Calendars.

I've always had a classic chocolate Advent Calendar every year. Last year I had two calendars in different designs, one Hello Kitty and one Disney Princesses, because I wanted both of them so I simply got them both, haha. This year I've found a Kawaii Advent Calendar and I'm debating on if I should get it or not. I obviously want to get it but it's a bit pricy so that's why I'm hesitating to get it but I'll probably write a blog-post about it if I end up getting it.

Will you get any Advent Calendar for this year? If yes, feel free to tell me what kind of calendar you're getting.

“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 1 DVD contest.

Today I got my “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.Season 1 DVD that I won in a contest on DVDKritik.

I've heard about the “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” series but I've never seen it before. It seems to be a series I would like though considering it's a action, drama and sci-fi series and it's made by Marvel.

Now I have the whole Season 1 DVD to watch and hopefully I like the series. Season 2 is airing in the US right now so I can start watching that after I've finished watching this Season 1 DVD.
