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.

TEA ADVENT CALENDARS:
Yogi Tea Christmas Collection, 49 KR. Sonnentor Te Advent kalender, 45 KR.

CHOCOLATE/CANDY ADVENT CALENDARS:

BEAUTY/JEWELLERY ADVENT CALENDARS:

CANDLE ADVENT CALENDARS/GIFT SETS:
Yankee Candle Advent House, 549 KR. Yankee Candle Book Gift Set, 489 KR.

Here's some different Advent Calendars that I've found. There's definitely Advent Calendars available for everyone! I have all of the Advent Calendars above on my Christmas 2014 Calendars board on Pinterest. 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.


World Animal Day 2014.

Happy World Animal Day! ♥

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.


We are 87%!


Inget samarbete kommer att ske med SD. Det är trots allt 87% som INTE har röstat på dem.
- Stefan Löfven, partiledare för S och Sveriges nya statsminister.

No collaboration will occur with SD. After all, there's 87% who have NOT voted for them.
- Stefan Löfven, leader for S & Sweden's new prime minister.


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.


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.


“What does the fox say?”

What does the fox say?” Now we know!

If you want to print this and put it on your mailbox, you can download it here.

The text says: “No thanks, we don't want any racism, homophobia or other xenophobia in our mailbox” in Swedish.

Cred to InteRasistMen for uploading the photo and cred to Alexandra and Johan for sending it to them.

European Elections 2014.


During 22-25 May 2014 it's time for the European elections for the European Union!

“The European elections of 22-25 May 2014 will give voters the chance to influence the future political course of the European Union when they elect the 751 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) to represent their interests for the next five years.”

WHEN IS ELECTION DAY?
“Each member state (country) has its own electoral laws and each one decides on what day its citizens will go to the polls during the four-day election period from 22 to 25 May 2014. The results from all 28 states will be announced on the evening of Sunday 25 May.”

So here in Sweden we can go and vote on Sunday, 25 May. We can also vote in advance so you may already have voted or if you want to vote before Sunday you can just look up where you can go and vote in advance.

Princess Madeleine & Christopher O'Neill welcomes a girl!

On Thursday evening, February 20, 2014, at 10:41pm in local New York time (04:41am Swedish time), H.R.H. Princess Madeleine of Sweden gave birth to a baby girl at the Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York.

Christopher O'Neill followed H.R.H. Prince Daniel's example and gave the news himself in a press conference.

A funny fact is that Princess Madeleine and Crown Princess Victoria's daugthers only have 3 days between their birthdays so they share the same star-sign. Hopefully that will give the two Princesses an extra close relationship as cousins!

UPDATE FEBRUARY 26, 2014:
 The new Princess' name was announced today by H.M. King Carl XVI Gustaf.
The Princess' name is Leonore Lilian Maria! Her official title is H.R.H. Princess Leonore.

Welcome to the world, Princess Leonore! ♥


A very important New Year's resolution.

New Year's resolution: Hereby I promise to not vote on SD in the 2014 election. Share the picture and help to spread the message by showing your support against racism.

Personally I don't need to have this as my New Year's resolution since I would never even think of voting on a party like them in any election anyway, but of course I support the idea behind this 100% and of course I want to help to spread the message by showing my support against racism. 

If you're a human who's against racism, I really think you should share the picture as well.
