2016 - A review

It's time for a long entry about 2016!
It was a very different year, both good and bad stuff involved and WOW, it has been crazy when it comes to jobs! When this year started I really felt that it was time for me to leave the job I had been on for 3 years. It had nothing more to give. So I gave myself a new year promise to find a new one. And I did! In february I already was in a new kitchen. A bigger one. But sadly a worse one.. Some of you might remember how bad I felt during those months. It was so much stress so I was very close to a meltdown when I got an offer to work in a bakery for the summer. It was less time and less pay but my husband told me to do it and I did. I will never regret leaving that awful job for a summer with cakes and pastrys.


When summer ended I worked at a after-school centre for a week all randomly. That was interesting because I'm not really used to kids. After that I got the offer to start in a schoolkitchen nearby our apartment. I was a little sad going back to a kitchen again but it really was great! I instantly loved the people I worked with and it wasn't any stress at all there. Sadly it was only 50% so I had to work extra on weekends and sometimes evenings at a foodstore as a casheer and also fooddemonstrator.
I had in some ways made my peace with it though when suddenly I got a surprising and very unexpected e-mail!
A printing office I had sent a jobapplication for in November 2015 wrote to me and wanted me to start working there as a printmaker. When I was there talking to my new boss and he showed me around I felt such joy. I honestly cried on my way home in the car. Would I finally be having a job where I wouldn't have to do the dishes after other people!
I have been working there for a month now and it's the best job I have ever had. I love the people, the tasks and that all my weekends are free from work! Sometimes when I'm working I get little "happy jump" in my stomach because I love it so much! I really hope that I will get to stay when my probationary is over.


Another good part of the year is that my endometriosis actually has stayed more calm than I expected! I haven't been doing all the workouts I should but I guess my contraceptive pills are holding stuff in place more than one can imagine. I'm so thankful for that because pain is something I wouldn't have wanted in the mix this year with all the jobchaos..

Another thing that I have wanted to do for years but couldn't because it's forbidden to wear when working with food is pierce my septum :D So it was my christmasgift to myself this year.



This is the stuff I intended to do this year:
- Finding a new job (X)
- Don't stress about work at home (X)
- Keep working out but also take more walks (/)
- Be myself more and take less shit from other people (/)
- Do a healthy detox ()
- Visit a spa ()

With the awful job I had from february to june my workoutschedule really took a hit. I had zero energy. I have been taking more walks though and have also started my regular workouts again a while back!

This is the stuff I want to accomplish the year of 2017:
-  Visit London ( )
-  Visit a spa ( ) Maybe this year I actually will afford this dream, haha!
-  Go bowling more! ( )
- Talk less to my mom. ( )
This might sound weird to many people but seriously, the world need to stop acting like all kids should appreciate their parents no matter what. My mom makes me feel like shit.

And traditionally, the hair of 2016 :)



Also, the best movie this year was definitely Zootopia, so if you haven't seen it yet you really should :D

A tv-serie quiz!

This quiz have been floating around in the swedish blogosphere so when CrimsonAnna also did it I decided to translate it and do it here! Because of my love for tv-series <3
I would love if you readers would want to answer in your blog or in a comment as well!

(sorry if some of the english isn't correct, haha, never been skilled at grammar!)

1. Favorite tv friendship? 
Joey and Chandler from Friends! No doubt :D


2. Best opening theme
I don't watch this serie anymore but it's still my favorite intro! 

3. Favorite 90-s serie
Could say Friends here but Sabrina The teenage witch is also so so good! When I was 13 I used to see an episode on tv each night and wear my hair like Sabrina the next day :D



4.  Funniest tv-show 
This is so hard. There are so many that is very funny worth mentioning like The middle, Melissa and Joey, Ugly Betty, Rita Rocks, Modern family. But in the end I don't think anything will ever be as good as Friends really!



5. If you could change something in a tv-serie, what would it be?
Liv and Major in Izombie would never break up!



6. The worst ending
I think many people are saying the same here. How I met your mother ended very disappointing.



7. If you could only watch one tv-serie for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
I hate this question, haha! Since I really love finding new things to watch. I'm choosing between Sex and the City and Friends. But I think Friends is the safer pick.



8. A tv-serie you look forward too.
In January a new season of Switched at birth is coming! I have been waiting more than a year now. It will be the final season but I'm still so excited!



9. One tv-serie you wish you had never seen
Well sometimes I wish I hadn't found About a boy because it only got 2 seasons and i still miss it! Not even a proper ending.



10.  The most scary character
Negan from The Walking Dead. I'm so scared every episode that he will be in it. xD

My christmas memories

Lovely Sarah started a little christmas countdown on her blog which is so so nice :D
The first entry is about christmas memories and I will now share some of mine.


Christmas has always been special to me. My mom loved christmas, so when I grew up there were lots of decorations, calendars, christmasbaking and music. Thinking back I really remember christmas as the best time of the year. I have always preferred the days leading to christmas than the day itself, I enjoy the countdown and all the things around but overall I think christmas is too much about gifts. 

The first years of my life I hated santa! I did not understand why he had to come. Even after I had come over my fear I just didn't care for him and used to snap the presents from his hand like a spoiled little brat without even a smile :'D 



Food was always a big part of christmasday! Something I really was looking forward to and it was always lots and lots of leftovers to eat for days, haha! 



After a few years our family skipped the Santa visits and my sister and I gave out the gifts. It was so much fun because the night before we had sat down and made rhymes to most of them :D 



When I moved away from home at 18 I started celebrating christmas with Mattias family. :)
This year is very special because his sister got a little babyboy 2 days ago, so this christmas will be very very different but also exciting!

It's beginning to look a lot like christmas!

A few days ago I started decorating for christmas! As many of you now know, christmas is my favourite time of the year! I love the lights, the music and the preparations. It's just so lovely and the most wonderful time of the year!



Isn't it nice when skeletons, bats and santas can hang out like this?


I was so excited for this tree! I made the Frozen decorations from last years chocolatecalendar. It's so cozy with the pink lights! 


I bought a set from a craft shop with all the parts and instructions to make these :D It wasn't as easy I had thought so I went mad a few times but it worked out well in the end, haha!


Christmas in our kitchen <3 

I haven't finished decorating our tree yet so I will simply do another christmaspost another day!

Have any of you started decorating?

Life update

Hello everyone :D I seem to forget having a blog sometimes.
It's been a crazy time lately. My mom got a heartattack 2 weeks ago. She is fine now but things like that really makes one to think about life. Also her cat was sick and needed operation. She lost an eye but is also fine now <3
I got a new job that I will start on monday! It's as a printmaker and I'm so excited :D

Since this is a job where I will be able to wear my own clothes, I hope it means more blogentrys with outfits ;) I feel like I need to find out who I am again when it comes to style because it's been so long since I had to care about it. Working in kitchens and having to change to workclothes everyday, I just put something easy to slip out off and hopefully I won't be that lazy now!


And yay, december is coming! My favourite time of year. Actually I will decorate for christmas tomorrow already, haha!

I hope everyone is feeling great, here are som pictures on what I have been doing lately.

Purple hair in winterstorm <3

I went out to dinner with my collegues from 4 jobs ago ;) It's nice to still keep in touch! 

Luna is guarding her dragon. 

I dressed up as Belle because I wanted to :D I love having the possibility to be a disneyprincess when I feel like it, haha!
