tokidoki for Hello Kitty passport case.

 Yesterday I went to the post-office to pick up this tokidoki for Hello Kitty passport wallet

I actually discovered this passport wallet some years ago and I've been wanting to get it ever since then but I haven't really had any reason to get it since I haven't gone on any trips abroad since 2010, except for cruises but you don't even have to take your passport with you when you go on cruises to Finland. But now I did have a reason to get it since I'm going to Rhodes with my Mom!

I ordered it from a seller on AliExpress and I also managed to find it for a better price than it's being sold for on other online stores. I was worried that it wouldn't arrive in time but the seller was really helpful and chose a faster shipping method and I'm happy that I did get it in time.

So I'll be using this beautiful tokidoki for Hello Kitty passport wallet for the first time when we're going to Rhodes and for every future trip after that! If any of you are a Hello Kitty fan or if you just like the look of this and want/need a passport cover, I really recommend it! It's beautiful and it looks even better in reality than I expected and it's made in a good quality and there's not only room for your passport, you can also put the cards and money that you need in it - it's like a passport cover and wallet in one without being too big.

Polaroid sunglasses & Guldfynd earrings.

Polaroid sunglasses from Synsam.
Silver Earrings with crystals from Guldfynd.

On Friday two weeks ago I had an appointment at SynOptik to get new contact-lenses. Some years have passed since I last wore any contact-lenses so I had to check my eyes and get a new prescription for contact-lenses since my eyesight have unfortunately gotten worse since then. I usually always wear my glasses but I want to wear contact-lenses when me and my Mom are going to Rhodes. I've actually never worn glasses at a pool or a beach because it's just so much easier to wear contact-lenses than glasses when you're going to be in the pool or at the beach so you don't have to worry about your glasses getting wet or anything. Anyway, I wore the test contact-lenses I got from SynOptik during the weekend and I can obviously see in them but it feels like I should see even better than I do in them so on Monday me and my Mom went back to SynOptik to book a new appointment so we can see if the contact-lenses have the right strength or not. So I'm actually going back to SynOptik today to check that. I've already ordered contact-lenses in the strength I have on my contact-lenses now since I want to have them on our trip but if it's not the right strength I can order the right one in the future and if it is the right strength then I guess I'm just weird or something.

After we had been at SynOptik on Monday we went to SynSam since they had a SALE on sunglasses and my Mom had bought 2 pair of sunglasses for herself there some days earlier. I managed to find a black pair of Polaroid sunglasses which I got and I also got a sunglasses case for them.

After that I wanted to check inside Guldfynd since I saw that they also had a SALE when we walked by the store. I've been wanting to get a pair of earrings that are actually rings and not drop earrings which I would be able to wear all the time without having to take them out every evening and I found these silver earrings with crystals that I really liked so I decided to get them. They really look better in reality than on the photos though!

I have a pair of gold earrings that are just simple but classic small thick gold earrings that I always wore all the time when I were younger, I basically wore them during my whole childhood and I never took them out. But then when I was a teenager I decided to take them out because I wanted to wear other different earrings as well. And now when I want to wear them again since I don't have to worry about taking them out every evening (and when I do want to wear different earrings I would just take them out of course) I don't know where they are. I think that they're in some random small jewelry box that you sometimes get when you buy jewelry because I have some of those but they're all in some of my moving boxes that are at my Dad's place. I don't want to go there and go through the whole boxes to find them but hopefully the earrings are in some of those small jewelry boxes and then I will be able to find them and wear them again when I move to my own place in the future which hopefully will happen in the near future.

The reason why I've been wanting to get and wear a pair of earrings that are actually rings is because I usually wear pearl earrings (which are obviously not ring earrings) which I really love but some months ago when I was going to take them out I noticed that one of the earrings (I don't know what it's called but it's the part you close the earrings with behind your ear that I'm talking about) had somehow been pushed inside of my ear. So the part of the earring had actually been pushed inside of the hole in my ear! Luckily I managed to get it out on my own and I could calm myself down and I obviously haven't worn earrings for a while after that. I think the reason why that happened is because I sleep on the side so I probably lied on the earrings which somehow caused them to be pushed inside the hole in my ear and especially since I had them on all the time and never took them out. I've definitely learned my lesson after that crazy and scary experience and I haven't worn any earrings for some months now. I'll definitely always take out my earrings every evening now if I wear pearl earrings or other drop earrings. But when I don't wear those kind of earrings I want to wear earrings that are rings because I know that I can wear them all the time and even sleep in them because they're rings and they will definitely not be able to get pushed inside the hole of my ear or anything else. The only problem with earrings that are rings would be if they're too big obviously because then it would be too uncomfortable to wear them when you sleep or if they also have the part where you close the earrings behind your ear because I know that some ring earrings have that. But my earrings that I bought are normal ring earrings as you can see on the photo so I hope that they're not uncomfortable so I can sleep in them and wear them all the time except for when I want to wear other earrings.

DIY: Making yarn pom poms.

I made these 2 pom poms on Sunday.
I made these 2 small pom poms on Monday.

On Sunday I came up with the idea to make some yarn pom poms!
First I had to ask my Mom if she had some yarn to spare but she let me take whatever yarn I wanted and I chose two different blue yarns and a purple yarn. I made yarn pom poms when I was little and they're really easy to make.

I came up with the idea to make some pom poms so I can put some on my suitcase since we're going to Rhodes and I also wanted to make one as a toy for Pika! My whole suitcase is black and so is probably 99% of all the other suitcases at the airport but if you put something on your suitcase like a address tag, a keychain or whatever you like it's obviously much easier to recognize your own suitcase when you're going to pick it up at the airport! So I came up with the idea to make some colorful pom poms to put on my suitcase and then I will definitely be able to recognize it much easier.

I'm going to put the 2 small pom poms on my suitcase and maybe one of the other ones or I'll maybe make another small one.

When I was making the first pom pom on Sunday I thought of maybe filming a DIY tutorial of how you make a yarn pom pom for my YouTube channel so I might film that some day in the future.

Even&Odd jelly shoes (bathing shoes).

Even&Odd bathing shoes/jelly shoes from Zalando.

On Saturday I picked up these bathing shoes/jelly shoes from the post office.
Me and my Mom are going to Rhodes in some weeks and unfortunately the beach there is rocky so it's not a sandy beach. I actually prefer to swim in a pool over swimming at a beach but my Mom wants to go to the beach too and we obviously don't want to walk around on the rocks with our bare feet so that's why I had to order a pair of bathing shoes.

I've seen that these shoes are also called “jelly shoes” and that people wear them as sandals. My Mom also said that she thinks I've had shoes like these when I was little and I remember seeing shoes like these when I was younger but now I haven't seen in them in any stores in many years. But it seems like they're back again.

The shoes were available in some different colors and I chose between black and seethrough with glitter. But I obviously decided on black because it looked the most classic and it will work with anything and everything, I know that I'll never get tired of the color and I think they look more like normal sandals than the seethrough with glitter did and I really like that they do look like sandals. Otherwise I would have had to order those real bathing shoes which are usually made of some kind of fabric and I don't like the look of them at all, they certainly don't look like any real shoes because they just don't look good no matter what color they are.

I will wear these shoes as bathing shoes/flip flops and maybe around the hotel or if I'm just going to go somewhere quick. I probably wouldn't wear them as real sandals though because they're a bit flat and my feet would probably hurt if I'm going to walk for a while and it's bad for your feet anyway to walk longer distances in flat shoes.

#LikeAGirl - Unstoppable.

“Do we limit girls and tell them what they should or shouldn’t be? 

Do we box them into expected roles? 

Well, we asked, and the answer was shocking: 72% of girls DO feel society limits them – especially during puberty – a time when their confidence totally plummets. Always is on an epic battle to keep girls’ confidence high during puberty and beyond!

Our original #LikeAGirl social experiment started a conversation to boost confidence by changing the meaning of “like a girl” from an insult to a total compliment. And – with your help – that conversation turned into major movement sweeping the entire globe. 

We’re on a roll, and we’re not stopping! Now, we’re empowering girls everywhere by encouraging them to smash limitations and be Unstoppable #LikeAGirl. We need your help. Join us. Watch, share and champion all girls to be Unstoppable #LikeAGirl.

For more than three decades, we’ve made it our mission to empower young girls worldwide by educating millions of them about puberty and their cycle, so they can feel confident – any day of the month. Together, we’re making great change happen. Don’t stop!

Troian Bellisario and Keegan Allen Official SPOBY Tee.

On June 27 I got this Troian Bellisario and Keegan Allen Official SPOBY tank top!

Troian Bellisario and Keegan Allen plays Spencer Hastings and Toby Cavanaugh in the TV-series “Pretty Little Liars” and they're a couple in the TV-series and their couple name is “Spoby”.

Troian and Keegan designed this exclusive Spoby merchandise and sold it at Represent and portion of proceeds went to Race to Erase MS.

Pretty Little Liars” is one of my favorite TV-series and the character Spencer Hastings that Troian plays are my favorite character (along with Aria Montgomery that Lucy Hale plays) and the character Toby Cavanaugh that Keegan plays are one of my favorite characters among the guys in the TV-series. So it's probably no surprise that “Spoby” is one of my favorite couples (along with “Ezria”) on the TV-series! I really like “Haleb” as well.

Hilary Duff album package from Fanjoy.

On June 27 I finally got my Hilary Duff album package from Fanjoy!

Luckily I was one of the first 1000 people who ordered the album package so I got a SIGNED copy of Hilary Duff's new album “Breathe In. Breathe Out”! And that was obviously why I wanted to order the album package in the first place.

I would probably never get a chance to get a signed album or anything signed at all by Hilary since she lives in the US and have never been here in Sweden or even Europe (not that I know of at least) for a concert, so I obviously couldn't resist buying this album package so that I would get her new album signed by her! I really hope that she will come to Sweden for a concert in the future but even if she does I don't think she will do a signing because not many artists/band do that these days so I definitely think that this was probably my only chance to ever get anything signed by her, so just because of that it was totally worth it to me. Hilary is one of my favorite stars ever and I've been a fan of her for more than a decade so I'm sure you can imagine my happiness of having her new album signed by her! I'll definitely take good care of it and treasure it forever.

Besides the signed album that the first 1000 people got, I also got 4 bonus songs to download which you only got if you ordered this album package from Fanjoy, a personal letter from Hilary, a handmade bracelet that was handpicked by Hilary from 31 Bits, 9 photostrips with Hilary (a total of 36 photos), an exclusive “Breathe In. Breathe Outt-shirt, a custom tattoo set from Tattify and Hilary's favorite lip balm from EOS.
