Girl Crush

I admit, I have a girl crush on the US born rapper/singer/DJ Uffie. I just like her cute, bad-ass style and voice. Those brown eyes and all the playful outfits always makes me happy <3 She is part of the record label gang called Ed Bangers, which features Justice and Feadz among others.

Deep Blue Sea?

So I was going to make a dive in the Harbor of Malmö (the Swedish town where I live) last week. A friend of mine had managed to get his longboard in the water (don’t ask me how). And since it was not any longboard, but his favorite board worth 350$ I decided to try to help him get it up. Since it’s spring in Sweden by now, there’s at least no ice on top of the ocean, and the water is as warm as lovely 5 degrees C (trust me, I looked it up). Anyway, I could not resist such a challenge since I love swimming and diving, so I packed my wet suit, my swim fins and my goggles. My plan was to go diving right after work on Friday and then head back to the office for a nice after work beer with the other buddies at work.

Unfortunately things changed and for reasons I couldn’t not do anything about the dive got cancelled in the last minute. So I decided to have the after work in my Top Gun flight suit instead (had it at work since I was going to bring it to the dive, it’s warm and easy to slip into). Event went to a club in it later that night. Got some fun looks, but hey, it was worth it!

The weekend was mostly spent near Göteborg (Sweden’s second largest city), watching koi-fish in a pond, together with horny frogs looking for partners. I guess I’m lucky when I’m near nature.

This is where the dive was going to take place. About 2 meters deep.

Me in the Top Gun flight suit!

My new sweet hearts! Every pair of heels I buy just gets more dangerous than the last ones...

 

 

Paris, Part 2

Some more shots from Paris, last weekend. I spent a summer in France when I was a teenager. Lived in a small town in Bretagne, trying to learn the language. To bad the family who let me stay in their home spoke Finnish, English and France. So I came back speaking fluent Finnish instead of France. Fail.

When in Paris, this is always the closest I get to The Tower...Its like when I have been to Egypt about 5 times and never visited the Pyramids lol.

At the airport. Fun parking.

 

Germany and back


Friday at work, my tea consumption is sky rocketing...

So this weekend I went to Siegen in Germany to visit my dear friend Marit. We have known each other since we both went to Uni in Skövde. She was an exchange student at the time and very keen to learn about Swedish culture and the language. Sometimes I forget I have  actually moved abroad to Sweden to work and study. Finland and Sweden are very similar if you look to the culture, but not if you compare the language. Swedes also tend to be more open and talkative.

A really old house in Siegen, Germany.

I really hate flying, but that does not stop me from visiting places and ppl I really love. It feels like every time I’m flying I’m sure it will be my last flight. I try to think about the fact that a plane is probably one of the safest places you can ever be. The plane itself if controlled and tested, the pilots and the crew had many hours of training and the cargo and the passengers are very well checked. Each year about 2000 ppl are killed in plane accidents, and even if you are experiencing an accident there’s a big chance you will survive. So, I trust the numbers to feel safe. And some happy music in my earplugs. And something sexy to read to distract me. Whatever floats the boat, right?

 

Some street art

Siegen is a relativity big town, located near Dusseldorf and Köln. The weekend was nice, we watched some Sex and the City, eat good food and took a stroll around Siegen. I realised I actullay understand some German. It’s not that hard if you know Swedish and English.

A package of Russian candy!

Marit celebrated her birthday on Sunday, and got such a cool gift from her brother; a package full of Russian candy! It was so much fun, since neither of us know the Russian alphabet we just had to guess what the candy tasted like. I mean, some of them had pictures of air planes, bears and flowers on them. Not likely the candy will taste of air planes or bears…

 

MilMo themed body wash?!

Look at this, I found some MilMo-themed body wash (or shampoo?) at Marit’s place! I think it has something to do with a contest on Facebook?

Tonight it’s time for a beer with my friends in Malmö : ) Take care!
