I have gone white trash over night. I have bought these crocs. No, it’s even worse, I’ve bought crocs ripoffs. I’ll wear them every day from now on. In sunshine or rain. To pants, shorts, dresses and skirts. And I love them so much.
Nah, just kidding. I still think crocs are ugly as fuck. I only bought them so I can wear them when I’m out on the balcony. They’re easy to slip in and out of so they’ll stand in front of the balcony door from now on. You’ll never see me leaving the house in these.
This months package from Tampons for free contained a hand cream from a series of products called Oliva, containing olive oil. I don’t like creams, especially hand creams, since they make me sticky but this one was absorbed by my skin rather quickly compared to the skin cream I currently use. It smelled very nice as well.
Last year I posted photos of my summer balcony as it took shape and I thought I’d show you the process of this years summer balcony as well. Last years colour theme was blue, red and white. This years colour theme will be turquoise, red and white. Not much difference there. Since one of the balcony walls is blue some shade of blue feels like an obvious colour choice.
There are no flowers yet. It’s slightly too early to plant stuff so I’ve just began the decorating. This may not be exactly how I’ll arrange things in the end.
This turquoise polka dotted cloth is called a “vaxduk” in Swedish. That directly translates to “waxed cloth”. I have no idea what it’s called in English. Whatever it’s called, it’s new and I like it. The candle and candle plate are also new.
I don’t like mineral water but when I heard of Loka’s new sparkling “Loka likes old school” flavours, I knew I just had to try them. The three flavours are “strawberry ice cream”, “chocolate shake” and “lemon pie”.
So far I’ve tried strawberry ice cream and chocolate shake. They really taste like what they’re supposed to taste like. It’s rather fascinating actually. Weirdly it’s doesn’t taste all that weird drinking water flavoured like ice cream and chocolate.
If I liked mineral water I would have loved these. I would probably have liked them in the form of soda as well. Now I don’t like mineral water so even if these tasted better than the average mineral water I probably won’t buy these again. I’ll try the lemon pie flavour though. Gotta try all three.
A question. If you’ve tried these, what did you think? And you guys who live in other countries where Loka isn’t sold, would have tried these if you could? Do you think you would have liked them?
I’ve begun project summer baloncy 2013. Earlier this week I began cleaning the balcony and today I continued with it. This year I’m not just cleaning the furniture, flower pots and stuff but the balcony structure itself. Everything is so dirty! I’ve probably spent a total of six hours cleaning the balcony floor, walls and railing so far and it’s not even done yet! This shit can’t have been cleaned in decades. The railing is the worst. Just look at these pictures and compare the part I haven’t yet cleaned to the left with the part I’ve cleaned to the right.
At 7 PM, after being at this since 2 PM, I had finished 50% of the railing and decided that was enough for today. After being out on the balcony for several hours, without enjoying even a minute of it, I decided to sit down with a glass of cherry wine and relax for a bit.
I found a couple of photos of my apartment from when I had just moved in. I hadn’t even unpacked or decided where exactly to place my furniture when these photos were taken. This was before renovations. Before I bought most of the furniture I have today. It’s hard to see anything of the home I have today in these pictures.
When it comes to beauty products I’m a sucker for everything that smells like candy or fruit. Here are a couple of my favourite products.
1. Star Nature bubble gum perfume
Smells like the name says. Bubble gum!
2. Aquolina Pink Sugar perfume
This is my favourite perfume, it smells like cotton candy and I never get tired of it.
3. Star Nature strawberries and & cream perfume
Smells very sweet, like candy.
4. I love… strawberries & milkshake shower gel
Like bathing in milkshake.
5. Lush Candy Fluff body powder
Another candy scented story, with glitter in it!
6. Lush Bubblegum lip scrub
I want to eat this! Which you actually can. It’s a bit too expensive to eat though…
7. CupCakes scented strawberry shortcake lip balm
I want to eat this too but it’s a lot more artificial so I don’t. It smells good though. Kind of like what Ben & Jerry’s strawberry cheesecake ice cream tastes like.
8. The Body Shop strawberry body butter
I adore this! It smells like what milkshake tastes like.
9. Lush Snow Fairy solid perfume.
A very sweet and sugary candy scented perfume.
