I’m the worst at keeping my blog updated and sorry for that.
The reason for this blog post is to explain a bit of why I’m so bad at updating my blog and other social media (the keyword in this post is social)
I have social anxiety.
I am pretty open about this with my friends since the majority of them understands how I’m feeling, yet I’m crap at keeping in touch with them.
I hate having anxiety. It is stopping from doing the things I want, like going to school, send an email and even getting new friends (both irl and online).
I think way too much about what other people might think of me, even though I know that it’s most likely not true. This just hurts me more than helps me and it becomes really hard to focus on anything besides what I’m thinking.
I don’t know what else to write about this. I just want to let you guys know that if you have social anxeity, or any other mental illness, don’t be afraid to talk to someone about it. And if you don’t have anyone to talk with you can always talk to me ❤
Today I’m coming with a recipe to you from outer space! (well not really but close :3 ) My friend Altea, from the blog Teatimes, and I decided to make a Nutella Cheesecake. We took a bunch of different recipes and tried to adapt them but failed a bit along the way and had to make some changes in order for us to be able to make it work, but in the end the cheesecake turned out to be super delicious! 😀
Here is the recipe that we used
2-3 packs of Oreo cookies
40+ grams of unsalted, melted butter
300 grams of Nutella
300 grams of Philadelphia cream cheese
Topping of your own liking (we used strawberries, hazelnuts and Oreos)
Melt your butter and blend together with about 1-2 packs of crushed Oreos. Put the mix into a springform pan and then put in the freezer while you make the Nutellamixture!
For the Nutellamixture, mix 300 grams of Nutella together with 300 grams of Philadelphia. Mix until smooth. Then take out the Oreo-cookie-crust from the freezer and pour the Nutella mixture onto it. Then put it in the fridge for about 3 hours.
Once it has been in the fridge, take the cake out and decorate with delicious things of your preference!
And here’s the finished product! 🙂
Hope you liked it and if you decide to make it that you enjoy it too!

I had been thinking about Star Wars the entire day, mostly because it’s Star Wars Day (May 4th) and just because the movies are freaking awesome!
I saw that the daily prompt was hope and since my mind had been somewhere up in space all day (maybe on the Millennium Falcon chillin’ with Chewie or in the Dagobah system training to become the greatest Jedi the world has ever seen) the words A New Hope popped up in my mind, very conveniently since it is the first Star Wars movie ever made and it’s, like I said before, Star Wars Day.
Star Wars is one of my absolute favourite movie franchises, maybe even my favourite. If you ask my friends they could probably tell you that I talk about it all the time everyday. I recently bought a Star Wars shirt and without knowing what day it was today I wore the shirt and a Death Star necklace (which I wear everyday). So, I guess my subconscious knew it was Star Wars Day all along and planned the outfit accordingly 😱 .
A New Hope is my favourite movie out of all of the 7 movies because it’s just so awesome! Since I’ve been a bit stressed lately and there has been a lot of negativity around me I thought I should watch the Star Wars movies again since they make me happy. I’m gonna go and do that now and talk to you soon! 🙂 .
I saw that the daily prompt was music and since music means so much to me I thought I should try and write a little about what it means to me.
Music has always meant a lot to me, even so much that I’m studying it at school right now. When I chose to study music I did it both because I knew that I wouldn’t be able to go through school without it and because I wanted to work and learn as much as I could about music.
I play the piano and sing and I have done it almost all my life. Sometimes when I am stressed or anxious I sit down by my piano at home and play. It calms me down every time, even if I have played the song a thousand times and it’s a bit overplayed. Singing also helps me calm down, but never in the same way that playing the piano does. That’s why piano music will always be my favorite to listen to and to play.
Music has always been a way for me to relax and help me think and I wouldn’t know what to do without it. It doesn’t matter if it’s rock or pop or classical music, it still helps me stay calm, especially when I’m anxious and have a lot of anxiety.
I have no idea how to end this post, so I guess bye for now, or something.
Since it’s soon summer and time for lots of festivals I decided to do a summer and festival inspired lookbook. I just realised as I was putting my looks together that pretty much all of my clothes are from H&M’s “H&M ❤ Coachella” collection, well I liked a lot of stuff from there and it was pretty cheap and cool. This is my first lookbook, so bear with my since it’s probably going to be a bit awkward.
I decided to call the first look “Summer Casual” since, well, it’s very casual and since summer’s here in Sweden can be very cool, and sometimes rainy, I choose to pair this top from H&M (which I absolutely love ❤ ) with my favorite pair of jeans from Topshop and my black converse. I figured you could wear this outfit pretty much anywhere, unless it’s too hot outside then you might have to wear some shorts instead. The hat and the sunglasses is pretty much in every outfit and they are my favourite thing about pretty much all the outfits <3.
Festival look 1
I had no idea what to call this look and the next one, so they are just going to be called festival 1 and 2. In this look I wore a tank top and a pair of a shorts and a kimono, all of the clothes are still from H&M :P, and the shoes are from a brand called sixtyseven, I think. I really liked this look and thinks it works if you’re going to a festival and again since it can be cold here in Sweden I added the kimono in case it gets cold, otherwise you can wear it without it.
Festival look 2
I loved this dress! ❤ Even though I’m not used to wearing short dresses or skirts. (yes I forgot to wear sunglasses 😛 ) I loved the elephants on the dress and I bought another one of these dresses and it had loads more elephants on it!
For this look I went for a bit more flirty and kinda girly clothes and again stepped out a bit of my comfort zone. I ended up loving this look and it became one of my favourites out of all five looks i put together. The top and skirt are from H&M and the shoes are from Vagabond. And again I loved this look so much! :3
To be honest it’s hard to come up with names for the different outfits! In this look, which is also the last one :'(, I wore a maxi dress from H&M and the same kimono from the second look. I remember walking in to a H&M store and seeing this dress and thinking “This is so not me, but I got to have it” and so I bought it and am pretty happy that I did 🙂
I had a lot of fun doing this lookbook, although it felt pretty awkward when we were taking the photos, all of the photos were shot by my friend Altea and she is posting a lookbook today as well over on her blog Teatimes 🙂 and we also have a YouTube channel together, if you want to check it out.
Hope you liked the post and want to see more posts like this in the future cuz I’m gonna continue posting lookbooks whenever I feel like it and have looks I’m proud of and like 😛
Hi, I’m back! As you may have noticed I haven’t posted in over a month and this is an update to sort of explain why. This is probably going to be a short post.
This month has been a really busy month for me. There’s been a lot in school and in my personal life.
In school we have had loads of assignments that had a deadline in February or March, so I’ve been working on those a lot. We had a really big assignment where you could pretty much do whatever you liked, if you study music or some other art programme, and I chose to write a short story and everything didn’t go according to my plan so I had to spend almost the entire month working on that and had almost no time for anything else.
Other than school assignments I have been meeting with nurse at school a lot to get help with something and I’ve had other meetings and trying to get things done to help with my health. I have done some fun stuff too, like going to the movies with one of my friends to see Deadpool and I’ve been to a Sci-Fi convention in Malmö and it was awesome, there was a cosplay contest and a sort of Q&A with John Rhys-Davies, who plays Gimli in Lord of the Rings (if you want to see some pictures you can go to my friend Altea’s blog Teatimes🙂 ) It’s almost graduation too and prom so I’ve been looking for dresses to these events.
So, I’ve been quite stressed and haven’t really had the motivation to blog anything. I will probably start blogging a bit more again, like tomorrow there might be some sort of Lush haul and I’ll maybe write about some other bath products I like if I have time.
