“The Tunnel” - Trailer.

The Tunnel (
FrenchTunnel) is a British/French crime drama television series, adapted from the 2011 Danish/Swedish crime series The Bridge (Broen/Bron). The Tunnel premiered on October 16, 2013 in the UK and on November 11, 2013 in France.

The series stars 
Stephen Dillane and Clémence Poésy as British and French police detectives Karl Roebuck and Elise Wasserman, respectively. 

The plot follows the two detectives working together to find a serial killer who left the upper-half body of a French politician and the lower-half of a British prostitute in the 
Channel Tunnel, at the midpoint between France and the UK. They later learn that the killer—who comes to be nicknamed the “Truth Terrorist—is on a moral crusade to highlight many social problems, terrorising both countries in the process. As the series progresses, the killer's true intention is revealed. A second series is reported to be in the works
I've seen the Danish/Swedish series “The Bridge” (Broen/Bron) and I really like it so when I found out that they've made a British/French adaption and Clémence Poésy (who plays Fleur Delacour in Harry Potter) plays one of the leads I knew I wanted to watch it. So I've been watching Season 1 on the Swedish TV channel SVT1 every Monday evening for the past nine weeks and tonight they'll show the tenth and last episode. I've read that they're going to make a Season 2 but I don't know when, but I'll definitely watch the second season as well.

My Celeborn “Cuddle Clone”. ♥

Tonight I picked up my CelebornCuddle Clone” from the post-office. ♥

I ordered him on CuddleClones.com on 29 June so it's taken almost 3 full months for him to be made and then shipped from the US to Sweden where I live. The website says that it takes 3 months for your Cuddle Clone to be made so you have to order them in time if you want it before some special date.

I found out about CuddleClones.com a while after my beloved Celeborn had passed away and I obviously wanted to get a Cuddle Clone made of him, but at that time I couldn't buy it so I had to wait. Then at 29 June this year I realized that I could finally get a Celeborn “Cuddle Clone” so of course I ordered it right away! It was like it was meant for me to order it at that time because I also found a $50 coupon code on their Twitter which was valid for one more day so I got my Celeborn Cuddle Clone for a cheaper prize than the original $199 prize.

Emma Watson's speech at UN about Gender Inequality.

The movement for gender equality was originally conceived as a struggle led only by women for women. In recent years men have begun to stand-up in addressing inequalities and discrimination faced by women and girls. Now it’s time to unify our efforts. HeForShe is a solidarity movement for gender equality that brings together one half of humanity in support of the other of humanity, for the entirety of humanity.

The HeForShe Commitment: Gender equality is not only a women’s issue, it is a human rights issue that requires my participation. I commit to take action against all forms of violence and discrimination faced by women and girls. Join the solidarity movement and spread the word. Share this with the men in your life. All over the world, men are taking a stand for gender equality. See how many men in your country have committed. Join them and move your country into the lead.

Loom band bracelets.

These are the 5 bracelets that I made with the DIY loom bands kit that I got in my Kawaii Box September 2014.

They are all laid out in the order that I made them, from the left bracelet in the top photo.
The blue/pink/purple in the top left and the rainbow bracelet in the bottom left are my personal favorites and I'll definitely keep them for myself. I've already had the blue/pink/purple bracelet on since I finished making it.

I'm going to give the middle rainbow bracelet in the bottom photo to Johanna, because that's the one she wanted when I asked her. I'll see if anyone else wants any of the others, otherwise I'll sell them in my Etsy shop that I'll open soon.

Kawaii Box September 2014.

This is the 12 items that was in my Kawaii Box for September 2014.

The “thank youcard.

A light pink bow headband with white polkadots.
I think this headband is really cute and I've already worn it even though I was just at home.

A lilac Alpacasso mini purse.
Do I even have to say that I love this?! I love the Alpacasso plush animals so I obviously love this mini purse. Since it's so cute I'll probably display it somewhere or just put it with my other stuffed animals or I might take it with me in my bag when I'm going somewhere and put painkillers in it or something.

A pink/mint card holder lanyard.
There's nothing wrong with this but I probably won't use it since I always have my cards etc. in my real wallet.

A loom band DIY set.
I know that these loom bands are really popular and it's most common to make bracelets with them but you can also make other more advanced things with them. I didn't know how it worked at first but then I looked at the photos on the back for a while and figured it out. I've already made 5 bracelets so far and now I can't make any more since I don't have enough loom bands left. It was really fun making bracelets with loom bands so I'll definitely buy more and make more bracelets in different colors and patterns. I'll also put up photos of the bracelets I've already made in another blog-post.

A pink ice-cream squishy charm.
I don't really have any use of this so I'll see if I'll use it as decoration in my future kitchen or if I can make it into a magnet or something so I get some use of it.

A light blue donut charm.
This doughnut charm is really cute but a few of the small parts that's supposed to be the sprinkles fell off very easily which isn't good when you have a pet. I don't think anything would happen if he swallowed them since they're so small but it's obviously not for cats so you have to be careful. The ice-cream squishy also have sprinkles on it that might fall off. Anyway, I might use this as well as decoration or something in my future kitchen. 

A Rilakkuma cookie sticks package.
These cookie sticks was pretty yummy! And Japan makes the cutest candy/snacks package and paper!

A case with fruit deco flakes.
I like doing my nails and I usually have long nails (& yes, they're my own, I never use fake nails) so I might use these some time. They would probably be best to use during the Summer.

A cat earphone charm.
I love cats so obviously I like this but since I'm still using my light pink Rilakkuma phone case I can't use this. My phone case covers the whole phone so this earphone charm doesn't fit but I'll save it and maybe use it in the future, if I ever get sick of the Rilakkuma phone case.

A pair of white shoelaces with pink mustaches.
These are cute but I don't know if I'll ever use them since pretty much all my shoes are black. But Pika thought they worked as good as a toy (I was the one who dangled them in front of him so it wasn't that surprising, haha) so I might let him play with them if I won't get any other use of them.

A small lucky bear notebook.
You can never get enough of notebooks, right? At least I can't. This is really small and it doesn't contain many pages but I'll definitely use it for something.
Stickers are always fun! You can see on the right photo how the stickers look like.

I wrote in my Kawaii Box August 2014 blog-post that I hoped the September 2014 box would be better since it's my Birthday month and my wish was fulfilled. I definitely liked this whole box and even though I don't really have a use for a few of the items, I still liked everything!

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.

Swedish Election to Parliament 2014.

Today, September 14, is the Election day for the Election to Parliament 2014!

If you haven't already voted in advance, go to your polling-station today and vote between 08:00-20:00
You don't have to have your poll-card with you but you must have your ID with you.

Dear Swedish readers, please go and vote, every vote counts.
I don't really care which party you vote for, but I really hope that you all agree with me that any party that supports racism, homophobia and degradation of women (i.e. SD) should not have any place at all in the Swedish parliament.
Therefore it's very important that we all do what we can to prevent it and go and vote.

“Scandinavian Retro” Classic Nr 2: Tove Jansson.

Today I went to our local library to vote for the Swedish Election to Parliament in advance and after that I went to the post-office to pick up my September 2014 Kawaii Box (which I'll make a blog-post about very soon) and then I went in to the grocery store and found this “Scandinavian Retro Classic Nr 2: Tove Jansson magazine.

I've never seen the “Scandinavian Retromagazine in stores before but when I saw Moomin on the frontpage it immidiately grabbed my attention since I'm obviously a Moomin fan. This is “Scandinavian Retro” magazine's second special number and it's all about Tove Jansson and Moomin. The magazine have 132 pages and the quality is very good, it's more like a catalogue than a magazine so this is definitely a magazine that I'll keep forever.

The magazine also gave me a 20% discount on Moomin mugs from the Cervera store, so I may buy some new Moomin mugs to my collection. I think I have 7 Moomin mugs in my collection so far if I remember correctly.

Swedish Election to Parliament 2014.

On Sunday, September 14, it's time for the Swedish Election to Parliament 2014!

You can go to your polling station and vote on Sunday between 08:00-20:00.
You don't have to have your poll-card with you but you must have your ID with you.

If you can't go and vote on Sunday, you can go and vote in advance.
Check here where you can vote and take your poll-card and ID with you.

If you're currently not living in Sweden, check here for information on how you can vote.
Remember to go and vote as soon as possible, since you can't vote on the Election day. All of the votes will be sent in time to Sweden for the counting of the votes so that's why you have to vote before the Election day.

Dear Swedish readers, please go and vote, every vote counts.
I don't really care which party you vote for, but I really hope that you all agree with me that any party that supports racism, homophobia and degradation of women (i.e. SD) should not have any place at all in the Swedish parliament.
Therefore it's very important that we all do what we can to prevent it and go and vote.

There's no good excuse to not vote, it's just very lazy and selfish. Please take your time to look up which party suits you most and use your vote. If not for yourself, then vote for all the children under 18 years old who can't vote.

“The Pirate Fairy” DVD contest.

Today I got my “The Pirate FairyDVD that I won in a contest on Barnguiden.com.

I'm a big Disney fan and I obviously like Tinkerbell so that's why I entered this contest.
I've seen the 3 first Tinkerbell movies Tinkerbell(2008), Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure (2009) and Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue(2010) which are all a part of the Disney Fairies franchise.
I just have to see Pixie Hollow Games(2011) and Secret of the Wings(2012) before I can watch The Pirate Fairy(2014). The seventh Disney Fairies movie Legend of the NeverBeast” will be released in Spring 2015.

140906 - Tacos & Stand'n'Stuff tortillas.

On Saturday I made tacos and tried the new Stand'n'Stuff tortillas from Old El Paso.

The tortillas are soft from the beginning but you're supposed to heat them up in the oven for some minutes so I put them in the microwave for 2 minutes and they ended up hard. So they are pretty similar to the yellow hard shells that you can see on the taco spice mix bag, since these tortillas also end up hard when you heat them up. But the tortillas taste better and they're also in a better shape. Even though they become hard when you heat them up, they definitely don't break as easily as the yellow hard shells does. The yellow hard shells usually breaks when you've just taken a bite of it but these tortillas you can actually hold and eat the whole thing.

I really liked these new Stand'n'Stuff tortillas and I will definitely buy them on my own. I prefer the normal soft tortillas but this is definitely the second best option according to me. The taco spice mix also have a new improved recipe and I really liked it. Since I'm a vegetarian/pesciterian, I use soy mince to tacos and I feel like this new recipe of the taco spice mix is actually better because the whole tacos was so delicious. We have one of the boxes with 8 tortillas left so I'll make and eat tacos this upcoming weekend as well.

140906 - Clothes on SALE.

A black knitted cardigan with a pattern and sequins.

A black/white t-shirt dress with stripes and polkadots.
A gray/black t-shirt dress with a pattern and frill at the bottom.

On Saturday me and my Mom went to exchange a book she had bought for me for my Birthday since I already had that book (it was “Allegiant” by Veronica Roth & I already have the whole “Divergent” trilogy). So I exchanged it for “Rasputin's Daughter” by Kathryn Harrison, which obviously is on my to-read list.

After that we went to a local clothing store since they're going to close it this month so they have everything on SALE. My Mom have bought a lot of clothes and even some accessories there, but I've been in there one time before and I didn't find anything then.

But now I got a pair of black leggings with a black stripe on each side of the legs which my Mom also had got the day before, a black knitted and patterned sequin cardigan, a black/white t-shirt dress with stripes and polkadots and a gray/black t-shirt dress with a pattern and frill at the bottom

The cardigan was the first and only item that I found on my own actually. My Mom had shown me the same leggings the day before since she had bought them and I liked them so I already knew that I wanted to get them and then she actually found and showed me the 2 dresses and I tried them on, liked them and got both of them.

10 first “Pretty Little Liars” books.

On my 24th Birthday this last Friday I also went to pick up my package with the 10 first books from the “Pretty Little Liars” book series by Sara Shepard.

The 10 first books that I got from the book series is called Pretty Little Liars”, “Flawless”, “Perfect”, “Unbelievable”, “Wicked”, “Killer”, “Heartless”, “Wanted”, “Twisted” and “Ruthless”.

I'm a big fan of the Pretty Little Liars TV-series and I'm following a Swedish blog, pprettylittleliars.blogg.se, about the TV-series and some week ago they published a blog-post where another reader of the blog wanted to sell the first 8 Pretty Little Liars books. She wanted to sell every book for only 10 kr, which is really cheap, so I obviously contacted her right away and told her that I wanted to buy them. She told me that she also had book 9 and 10, so I got the 10 first books from the Pretty Little Liars book series for only 175 kr inluding shipping! If I would have bought the books online on my own I would only have been able to get 2-3 books for that price, so it was definitely a very good deal.

I'm obviously up to date with the Pretty Little Liars TV-series and I'm waiting for the Christmas episode that they're going to air some time in December this year. I already know that the biggest difference between the TV-series and the book series, which everyone should know, is that Alison doesn't have a twin in the TV-series which she have in the books. But I thought that it would be fun to read the books to find out what else is different between the TV-series and the books.

I've already started to read the first book Pretty Little Liars” and I've already found some other differences, which is the girls looks: in the books Aria have black hair, Spencer have blonde hair, Emily have red blonde hair and is Irish and Hanna have brown hair. So the only girl who have the same looks as in the books is Aria, since she have dark hair in the TV-series as well. But Spencer, Emily and Hanna all have a different hair color in the TV-series and Emily even have a different ethnicity. So I've already find some other differences and it will be interesting to find more. 

140905 - My 24th Birthday.

First course: Both me and my Mom had vegetarian spring rolls.

Main course: My Mom had chicken with cashew nuts and I had fried shrimps with curry sauce.

Princess Cake, which is a typical Swedish Birthday cake and I always get it for my Birthday.
On Friday, September 5, was my 24th Birthday!

Me and my Mom had dinner at my favorite Chinese restaurant.

After that we went to a grocery store to buy a Birthday cake for me and we obviously bought a Princess Cake, which is my favorite Birthday cake and it's the cake that I always get for my Birthday.

“Into The Woods” - Trailer.

Into the Woods” is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests.

“This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy) — all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.”

The film is tied together to the original story of the baker and his wife, their interaction with the Witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters during their journey. What begins a lively irreverent fantasy musical eventually becomes a meaningful tale about responsibility, the problems that come from wishes, and the legacy that we leave our children.

Into the Woods” premieres on December 25, 2014 in the US and on February 13, 2015 in Sweden.

My new Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini mobile.

Today I got my new Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini mobile!

On Monday I ordered a new mobile in the same model that I had before since my old one refuse to work. A new mobile will definitely work perfectly and I don't have to worry about it.

I also bought a “ZAGG IS Galaxy S3 mini Screen” for my mobile which is a screen protection and it's made of a material produced by the American military to protect the rotorblades on the military's helicopters. I bought a cheaper screen protector for my old mobile which didn't even work to stick on the screen so I never had a screen protector for my old mobile but this ZAGG IS screen protector is a bit more expensive but still a good prize considering it should be of good quality and it have good reviews as well so it's better to be safe than sorry and get a screen protector when I've got a completely new mobile.

As I wrote on August 26 my mobile keeps re-starting itself and I'm not able to use it. I ordered a new battery to the mobile last week to see if that would make the mobile normal again since many people, including Samsung service center, had told me that the battery might be the problem but a new battery didn't make any difference. So I would have needed to go to the Samsung service center to let them fix my mobile but since I don't have any assurance on the mobile I would have had to pay the whole cost on my own no matter what the problem was and they had no idea what it could cost to fix the mobile, so I suspect that it would have cost at least more than 1000 kr to fix the mobile since it's something wrong with the whole phone so I decided to save myself the trouble and just buy a new one. It just cost a little more than 1000 kr now so it's definitely not expensive and it's about 1000 kr cheaper now then when I first bought it in the beginning of 2013. 

I feel like if something have broken once, it's a bigger risk that it will break again. None of my previous mobiles that I've had so far during my life have ever broke and I don't think a mobile that's not even 2 years old should break in the first place. But a completely new mobile will definitely work perfectly and hopefully I'll be able to have this one much longer than I had my old one! 

Old El Paso products from Buzzador.

Today I got my package from Buzzador with the new Stand'n'Stuff Tortillas from Old El Paso.

I got 2 boxes with 8 Stand'n'Stuff Tortillas in each + 2 Taco Spice Mix bags.

I really like Tacos, as most people do, and I prefer Tortillas before the hard shells that's shown on the Spice Mix bags so it will be interesting to try these new Stand'n'Stuff Tortillas. Since I like normal Tortillas I guess I'll like these ones too, since they're still Tortillas and they're just made in a different shape.

I'll ask my Mom if we can eat Tacos on Saturday or Sunday so we can try these Stand'n'Stuff Tortillas.

2 dresses for 127 kr via Members.com!

Charis Dressby the brand Jeane Blush.

Street Stylish Dressby the brand Estradeur.

Today I got these 2 dresses that I ordered via Members.com and I got them both for only 127 kr!

I saw the “Charis Dress” first on Members and it's the second v-neck dress that I own. I usually don't like v-neck dresses as you probably can understand since I only own two but I liked this one because of the sequins around the neck and it looked like the dress had a really nice fit. I'm not really a fan of tight dresses and I barely own any and as you can see, this dress have a loose fit and that's what I liked about it. That's usually the dresses that I prefer, the ones that have a loose fit because they're flattering for your body or at least for my body. With loose fit I mean loose fit, not those over sized clothes that will make you look like you have a tent on.

I just had to get the Street Stylish Dress” when I saw it on Members. I've always wanted to own a sequin dress but I haven't found the perfect one before but this one is definitely my style. This dress is probably not a dress that you would think of when you think about a sequin dress and I've never seen any sequin dresses like this one before but I really like that because that just means that this dress is more unique and that less people will own a dress like this. I really like this dress and I think it would be a perfect dress for New Year's Eve! I think sequin dresses in general are perfect dresses for the New Year's because personally I think they're too fancy for every day wear. They may also be good for more fancy parties, but I wouldn't go to one since I'm definitely not a party girl so a New Year's Eve dress it is.

The dresses only cost 88 kr and the shipping cost 39 kr. I also used the 50 kr that I had on my Members account so I only had to pay 127 kr instead of 177 kr. The dresses originally cost 399 kr and 299 kr which would have been 698 kr + shipping, so I saved at least 571 kr thanks to buying them on Members.com.

Members.com is a exclusive shopping-club for members. They offer products under time- and volume limited campaigns and to reduced prices. You get 50 kr on your account when you become a member. Do you want me to invite you to Members? Leave a comment with your e-mail and I'll send you a invite.
