I’ve had the stomach flu this past week and I’ve been feeling terribly awful !!!!
I swear there were times when I just wished I could die and wake up when the infection had left my body.
Not being able to hold down (and enjoy) food and drinks is an absolute nightmare for me!
- I’m a fluffy girl, what do u expect!?! lol
My skin is terrible and I just feel jucky!
but I guess we all feel like that when we’re sick!
However I’m finally feeling a bit better!!!
Do u guys have any good tips of things to eat or/and drink to look and feel better?
U can email me ur tips and I’ll post them on here later on so people can get some good tips!
Think we all need them this time a year
(U will get ur name posted by ur tip and u may send this in : English, Spanish or Swedish)
I need to get cracking with my studies and I have to get packing cus I’m hopefully travelling to Sweden on Monday!!
I really hope all goes well and I actually get all the way to Sweden cus I’m not travelling the normal way but taking trains/buses/boat/flight to get all the way there.
May God please get us there safely!
Cus I really want to spend my bday and holidays with the rest of my family!!! <3
Miss them sooooooooo <3 <3
Something that I absolutely love right now in fashion is all the Midi skrirts and dresses!!!
They are an absolute must in my wardrobe right now.
I feel like the length of these skirts enhance my curvy shape and makes my bum and hips look really voluptuous and plus it doesn’t make me feel slutty Lmao!
I absolutely love my new Faux Leather Midi Skirt from Missguided!!!
Not only do I love the length and comfort of it but the “leather” material is really lush!
I would really recommend to do your shopping on their online website. The clothes arrived only a day after I ordered them and it is soooooo affordable, which is always a must for me as I am a student!!
LOVE BLACK LEATHER and need to be getting a few more outfits with leather details!
This look can be dressed down as well as dressed up; curl hair and add some higher heals and this will be an outfit to go out in the city with or maybe a date

So I guess some of you have noticed that I haven’t been able to post anything on the blog and like Kim said before, I was in Malta and couldn’t really write. We did have wifi but it really sucked so when I tried to post it refused so I kind of stopped trying but now I’m back and I just want to go back, lol!
I’ll tell you guys that I wasn’t as excited as everyone else in my class about going to Malta but at the end of this trip it couldn’t have gone any better than it did! I want to really thank everybody who made this week amazing and thank everybody for showing me how wrong I’ve been about our class! I really thought that nobody in our class were fun but this trip made me realize that I was wrong and that we have really funny people! I guess y’all want to know what we did and how everything went and see pictures? Well I will tell you all about it but not all in one post because I guess that you would just skip the text and jump to the pictures?
Well for today all I’ll leave you with is that I really had an amazing time and that I made some new friends and that I think the rest of my last year in Wendela Hebbe will be amazing because of these people! Oh yeah, I’d like to thank Licca, Eira and Josefine the most because they are the funniest of them all and they made this trip memorable! (and I’m also sorry for lashing out a little bit the last day but I’m happy you stood out with it)
Here’s some pictures;
Feels like I haven’t written in some time, but with the way that we have split up the days between Paow and I + the themed days; there’s just isn’t enough room or time for writing ..
I have been struggling keeping a balance in my life since Bella came into my life. Since I don’t sleep properly and I’m missing some lectures at uni I feel like some bits of my life just ain’t coming together.
However my brother is coming down to London on Monday and he’s staying for a bit so I’m reeeeaaallly excited to get some company and some help with the lil one . Sometimes people tell me I sound like a new mum with a newborn and I swear it is not too far off. This puppy requires soooo much love time and discipline it’s just crazy. She behaves like a baby, I was expecting it to be different and I compare her a lot to my dog in Sweden but the truth of the matter is he was 12 weeks when we got him and she was only 6 weeks. Also he is a bigger breed and she’s only a small breed. She won’t even grow to be as big as Jayzon was when we first got him lool.
Apart from all this nonsense I still find myself very happy and blessed! I am making the best of everything and enjoying my days at home with tea/ or hot chocolate and some really great xmas movies. For y’all that don’t know I am the Xmas fanatic in my family. I start with my xmas spirit as early as I can lol I just love everything about it really! I’ll probably start my Xmas shopping in a week or so
I have also been throwing a great deal of dinners with my friends. I mean since I can’t go out much I have people come here. My friends love my cooking and I love cooking it for them!
My latest project was making a big dinner for Helen. She just turned 25 and I felt like it was my responsibility to make her feel special! I made a big feast with starters, a few mains to choose from and I baked a bday cake from scratch! It was well appreciated by both her and Fatou, which made me really content. Everything turned out really great and I’m looking forward to doing it again only maybe in a smaller scale lool
This is all I’m gonna leave you with right now and I’ll be updating you on my life soon
here are some pics :
I really like mixing up different type of styles and making it my own!
Personally it is very important for me to enhance my good features and perhaps hide my least favourite ones lol.
My OOTD makes me feel smartly dressed as the top is closed all the way up and it tones my boobies down a notch, it also flows very freely and therefore hides my tummy Having my hair slicked back to one side makes it look smarter and more proper but would I have been going out for a drink I would’ve probably worn this with my hair out and with some curls at the front.
To top it all up I felt it was necessary to wear the leather jacket as it gives it a fierce look rather than just being boring!
& Finally to make it a lil cute and personal I had my puppy Bella pose with me which FYI is not even easy LOL!!!
Bella is the absolute CUTEST puppy on this earth! <3

I got back to London late Thursday night, I swear I was not home until almost 1am!
So once I got in I literally just went to bed.
It was quite relaxing really and for some reason I was not anxious at all for leaving my family. Sure it is sad and I have already spent hours on Skype with them but as for the overall feeling of being here it just feels really good!
I feel happy!
However I don’t feel quite settled yet. I still have no food in my refrigerator, I haven’t cleaned the flat and I have not unpacked my bags just yet Lol!
I didn’t really have time to do it yesterday cus I went “window shopping” for a little puppy. My mother has been telling me now for a while to get my own dog instead of sharing one with my friend cus in the end it will just create problems and issues between her and I and I feel like that is actually true the more I think about it.
I wouldn’t want that to happen really and I feel like it would be totally unnecessary to fight over something that wasn’t even mine to begin with.
I spent the whole afternoon looking for puppies and I actually found one I really wanted!
It’s a female Yorkie
I am completely in love!
But we will just have to se how it all plans out.
On my way back from seeing the puppy the building door was jammed so myself and four neighbours were trying it all to get it to open but with no luck! One of the guys even started to kick it in order to get it to open, however with no luck. In the end someone opened the door for us from the inside. By the time I actually got in I was so tired I didn’t feel like doing anything and I was definitely not in the mood to clean this place up.
So here I am with my bags still unpacked in the hallway….
I am going to a wedding today so I won’t have time to sort this flat out today either, guess my bags will be packed for the whole weekend before I do something about it lol.
Well I gotta rush now cus otherwise I’m going to be late!
Y’all enjoy your weekend now!
Yesterday was a really nice day. It was our grandmothers bday and because it’s the day before Chile’s “fiestas patrias” which is the annual celebration of the beginning of the independence from the Spanish crown we decided to go with that theme.
So we made empanadas, cachitos, pebre, mayonesa with potatoes and meat, pastel de choclo etc.
It was soo fucking yum and the best part is that there’s loads of left overs for today
Today is quite an annoying day cus I am flying back to London tomorrow so I need to pack, wash clothes and so on.
I’ve just spent the last hour shopping online for stuff, so that I have something to look forward to
I will really miss Sweden and all my peeps, but I’m coming back in December so it’s not that bad really.
Sometimes I just wish I could snap my fingers and just be at my chosen destination! I love changing scenery but I don’t really like the travelling part, you know the flight and coach etc, I don’t really like packing either!
I am quite nervous for some reason and its probably cus I know that summer truly is over now and that I have to go back to uni and all the stress that it brings. It’s also the last year so I need to figure out what I wanna be doing after that too.
I’ve decided not to stress about it too much and take everything as it comes. The only thing I want to be planning out is my uni work so that I can manage to stay on top of it and not fall behind but as for everything else; I’ll just take it day by day.
This is quite unique cus I am known amongst family and friends to stress out and plan my life ahead: a control freak with other words…
Lately however I have just tried to enjoy everything more and just appreciate everything around me and in my life cus I am after all very happy and content with myself and my life … Just the way it’s supposed to be ..
Mucho love & Feliz fiestas patrias !!
What an AMAZING weekend we’ve had!!
One of the best in a really long time really.
I went to Stockholm on Thursday last week to spend some time with my cousin Karina and our grandmother. As always our granny prepared a feast for us that we struggled to finish!
Our grandmother is probably one of the best cooks ever!
She never fails to impress us with all the delicious food and desserts!
Thursday was a really fun day cus it has been quite a while ago since we had been in Fiskis, the “hood” I grew up in, and really chilled with old friends. Most of the time when I’m there I just end up spending time with my nan and maybeeee I’ll go out with a friend for a cigarette.
This time however was a lot different.
Karina and I went out to meet some friends and ended up hanging around the streets with 5 other guys that we have know since diaper times. The weather was lovely and it felt like a true summer day. Once the sun was setting we sneaked up to one of the building roofs and watched the sunset and chilled out with some music on the speakers, funny company, (I enjoyed a glass of wine) and some cigarettes.
Karina and I felt like real criminals looooool even tho it wasn’t even illegal or nothing. Or at least not that illegal anyway lmao!
I am really REALLY scared of heights so I never really went too close to the edge cus knowing me I would just get so stressed out and scared I would just jump off the building so I could get it all over with. I know I’m a real pussy when it comes to it but I swear heights just make me really freaked out and weak!!
So obviously the guys including Karina had to make fun of me and walk right to the edge and just made me overall nervous and nauseous!
Yes I get freaked out even when it’s not myself standing there…
We sat there for a while until it started to get a bit too cold and Karina had to drive back home.
I however was spending the night at my nans so I stayed and chilled with the boys whom after seeing me drink my glass of wine really wanted to get some drinks in, so whilst I was paying some other friends a quick visit they sorted some drinks out and I met them up later for some crazy fun in the streets of Fiskis.
This took me way back in time!
This is something I used to do when I was like 15/16 years old and I had actually forgotten how much fun it is!!!!!
Drinking, listening to our chosen music and just laughing until you get cramps and tears are falling down your cheeks!!!! It’s a Lil ghetto fun!!
What a day that was!!!! It will really stay with me in my folder of really good memories
On Friday I went to see 3 of my younger siblings at their mums house and God knows how nervous I was!
I really love these kids so much and to have their mothers approval was and is so important to me.
I baked a big chocolate cake with icing and it went down well with them as they all really loved it!
We had such a nice time and they showed me some baby pictures and told me about their childhood memories, and ofc about their current loves and links lmao.
Next time I really need to make sure I spend the night with them cus time flew by way too quick and we didn’t really feel done if that makes sense.
Saturday was a bit stressful cus I wanted to do so much stuff and had so much to be doing but not enough hours to get them done. I am a real time optimist and I like pleasing people, but that doesn’t really go as planned most of the time lool.
I met up with my girl Rahel in Slussen and had a drink on a rooftop terrace called Ljunggrens. It wasn’t the cheapest place but it was really cosy and chilled out. We were there when it was quite empty but by the time we were leaving people started to fill up the place.
It was really nice catching up with her as it had been such a long time since I got to really speak to her! That’s a big change from when she was living in London and she was the person I spoke to on the phone everyday.
On my way home I twisted my ankle and my plans for later that evening were ruined! The plan was to go salsa with, my cousin Karina and her boyfriend & Paow ofc. We however had to cancel.. But we will definitely go once I come back to town again.
The change of plans was not that bad anyway cus we ended up going to some drink up in Fiskis.
It started out like some great fun and people were in a really good mood!
It wasn’t even too cold or nothing
However with this many people from the hood and that amount of alcohol there’s bound to be some drama and my days there was drama!
One guy was soo wasted he punched a guys eye in!!!
The poor guy was bleeding right underneath his eye and it looked quite disgusting!
This obviously made other people angry and they stepped in which created more arguing and drink thrown in the air etc. Paow and I took a big step back and just observed. We ain’t getting involved but we ain’t missing it either lmaooo.
Most people left after this but a few of us just went for a walk and later just sat down and had some jokes and laughs.
We had soooo much fun despite all the drama and were able to laugh and joke around.
We didn’t get home until 4 am or something.
Now I know this post is a bit longer than usual but it was difficult getting it this short even!
Would’ve liked to share more details but I’m gonna cut it here.
Unfortunately we didn’t take many pics but here are some at least
We just got back from a nice day in the small city Trosa, which is not all that far away from our house here in Sweden.
We went for a stroll in the harbor and just looked around the restaurants and small shops. It was totally amazing!
We looked like tourists just snapping pictures of everything, lmao!
It is such a nice little city and totally cute too. Kim felt like she was in a Astrid Lindgren story and she is definitely going back to the restaurant by the water so that she maybe can get it on with one of the boat/yacht owners, LOOOOOL
Seriously though; we will be going back sometime when the weather is good again cus it really does look like a good time!
We had a little afternoon tea in this really cute cafe where they played old oooold school music. Kinda felt like we were in a classic movie!!
We really had a nice time with the parents and we would definitely do it again!
Here’s some pics:
