So winter is coming… and since it was 4 years ago i spent a winer season in Sweden last time i am in BIG need of a winter jacket. Yes sure i already have some at homes, that i used before. Like my Canadian Goose jacket. It is nothing wrong with that BUT, it has real fur, which didn’t bother me much a couple of years ago, but since i am much more aware of how terrible they treat those animals and how much they have to suffer just because we want to feel nice in a real fur… Nah, than i dont really see the beauty of in any more, opposite, i actually get disgusted from real fur…
Luckily we have a lot of super nice products these days called fake fur! And most of them you can not even tell it is fake. So no need for real ones to look nice ladies 😀
So i have been searching AF for a nice and warm winter jacket.. Since we never know about Sweden, some winters its like a summer in Finland, and some winters are like if Antarctica made babies with Ojmjakon in Russia. So we need to be prepared for whatever might come!
So what do i look for in a winter jacket?
- It has to look good and be love at first sight!
- It has to be really warm! Im a cold MF
- Short design… i know, a long one is better for keeping the heat, but i really dont like long models on me…
- Big fluffy nice looking fake fur
Aaaand, which brand (according to me) has the absolute best looking winter jackets this year?
ANSWER: RockAndBlue & Hollies. So many beautiful jackets… but so little sixes left… Life is harsh sometimes… until yesterday! When i saw one of my absolute FAV jackets from Hollies, in my size (hope i picked right) at Nellys.com. So i ordered it! And believe me, it was like Christmas mixed with an orgasm when i pressed the order button.
Find the jackets HERE.
PS. Most of the jackets from Hollies have models with both real and fake fur. It depends from where you order.

I am very positive that I am soon immune against all kind of sickness that you can ever get here in Sweden.. no more pls, have mercy on me with all this cold all flues 👐
Well at least I’m back now! Or almost. I’m back at work at least but I’m still not feeling great. Thankfully it is Friday tomorrow which I will enjoy calmly in a warm sofa with nice food and movies.
Me being “healthy” at the office
A lot has been up this weekend. It started with an AW at the office, followed by a dinner out, followed by a visit at Cafe Opera, followed by a visit at Sturehof, followed by a visit at Laughing duck..
With other words it was a long Friday, but i need nights like that ever now and than.
Saturday i spent outdoor with my sister… playing Pokemon Go. Yes, i am playing Pokemon Go! I am one of these people who like to dress up, looking really serious… and hide my mobile when people pass by, just because i am actually walking around playing Pokemon Go. I shouldn’t. Hide it i mean… i dont know why i am doing that 😛
Well it was a successful Pokemon collecting and battle day. I enjoyed it.
In the evening me and my whole family went to my uncle for a crayfish party., and i think we ended up dancing till 5.30 in the morning… It was a fun evening.
And yeah, my boyfriend that i havent seen since beginning of September also arrived last night to Sweden 😀
Soon it is my absolute favorite time of the year. Of course i am talking about Halloween. I love the whole thing. The scary part, the candy part, the dressing out part. It is indeed a feast for me. Since Halloween is just around the corner, i was thinking about answering some simple questions about this day, and maybe help you out to start working out your fantasy to find the best Halloween costume.
So when is Halloween?
Luckily for us us in Sweden, we celebrate both Halloween and Alla helgon. Which mean we got two of these amazing scary day. All though, we like to party and dress out more for Halloween to celebrate, and for Alla Helgon it is more a day for us to honor dead family and friends.
But to answer the question. Halloween is ALWAYS 31st of October. Which means that this year it will be on a Tuesday. Luckily for all of us, most events is held during the weekend which give us all a chance to dress out and celebrate all together.
And than there is you sick bastards who can be out for a whole night partying and still going to work the next day. I am on a mission finding out the secret of yours….
And why do we celebrate Halloween?
Eeeh, stupid question… to dress out like sexy fairy’s and nurses. Noooo. Well thats what Halloween is for many people, and thats fine. Everyone should enjoy whatever they want to do. But historical, Halloween is a day to remember the dead. Family and friends, but it is also a day for remembering the saints (hallows) and martyrs. If you want to read a little more about it but dont have the patience to read too much. Well visit Wikipedia. Here is a link!
But here is probably the most common question of them all, and the most tricky to answer… because there is no right or wrong answer..
What should i be for Halloween?
Whatever you want! Well i know this question pops up normally because you have no idea what to dress out like and you have already used all your fantasy. So here is some tips
- To get inspiration i normally google a lot of stuff, finding something cool which takes me to another page or site, which take me to the next one and after a while, i found soo many cool pictures that i decide to mix em all together to the ultimate Halloween costume.
- Search for cheap costumes at pages like ebay, tradera or blocket. There you can always find a full outfit for a really cheap price. And by searching around there you will also get some inspiration before finally finding the costume of your dreams.
- Every time you see something cool that your immediately start thinking “oh wow, i would like to dress out like that”, write it down, it doesn’t matter if it is February or in the middle of the summer. You might want to still remember that cool outfit when the best feast of all year is around the corner.
- Is there anyone you always wanted to be for a day? DO you have any role models? Well, dress out like one of them!
And for you who feel like your economic does not allow you to put out money on stupid Halloween outfits. Well, go search for things at your home. You will be surprised which cool outfits you can come up with if you just focus on your fantasy and do some mix and match.
Here is me and my dude last Halloween. I loved that outfit and will reuse it for sure!
..again. that’s the bad thing when you move to another country. New country = new bacteria. Well, hopefully I’m feeling better tomorrow.
And for you who feel healthy and can be outside. Enjoy this beautiful sunny Swedish Autumn ❤🍁
This week has been very busy. I have had things on my schedule almost every day after work, and i managed to get myself a new gym membership and go training 3 times this week. So far i am very happy about the membership. I will try it out for a couple of more weeks and write a review about it here in my blog for you guys. And no, it is not SATS.
So yes, it has been a very tired week for me, especially today since it got waaay later than i am used too. But that was an exception since i was at Rolling MF Stones at Friends Arena. They are always great. BUT, i have to admit that they were better the last time i saw them live a couple of years ago. They had more connection with the public and the show felt more personal. But still, they were really good yesterday, the guys know their thing!
So what is the plans for the weekend?
After work i will leave straight to my summer place where i will spend the weekend with my family, cousins and partners and enjoy some nice Swedish crayfishes. I never say no to that.
How has your week been and what is your weekend plans?
A calm weekend with not too much activity. But still i am extremely tired. A while a go i bought a fitbit watch. Mostly to keep track of my sleep. I set the goal as 8 hours per night which i have never managed to receive, until last night. For the first time (probably since i moved back to Sweden) i managed to sleep more than 8 hours. Lets see when next time will be 😉
I will write more about that watch later, i actually like it a lot, so it was a good investment. But for now, i think i have to chill a bot with the shopping, i managed to spend a lot more than planned this month. But i did also buy a car, which added pretty much to my monthly shopping budget.
Now i am gonna light a lot of candles and crawl down under my blanket to watch something and dream back to the warm summer days that i had my last summer i lived in Malta.
Hellooo Saturday. I was expecting a calm weekend but not this calm. I realized that moving to a new country often comes with a lot new bacterias that am no longer used to. Thats why i have been feeling a bit weak lately. So better having a really calm weekend just being at home this week. Next week i have some plans and trips on my schedule and i really want to feel better soon.
Except from wining a bit over my health, i just want to wish you all a great weekend. I am not that down actually, i am pretty happy these days 🙂 (just one thing is missing)
