The day of our arrival we went almost directly to the Opera Marinski to see Swan Lake. It was another dream come true for me. My first time at the Opera was after i moved to Stockholm, so i’m still a novice, so seeing a Ballet in St Petersburg…OMG. It was GORGEOUS !!!!! I had goose bumps and felt so fancy eventhough we were totally underdressed! We sat right next to a retired couple from Orange County !
Well, Thursday night was the opening of the exhibition called FASHION at Fotografiska, and it was awesome !
Everything was so pretty, every one was dressed up, they had cameras, people taking pictures, we felt like Blair and Serena 😉
Im guessing they were taking pictures and intervewing famous swedish people… weird how we had no idea who they were.
So the pictures were georgous, the bar was…open sponsored by Absolut, the music was gooooood…. It was GREAT.
I got complimented on my dress, my coat and my shoes 😉 always feels good.
Jeudi soir, petite soirée VIP pour l’ouverture de l’exposition FASHION à Fotografiska. C’était dingue. Photographes, caméra, open bar, on se serait cru dans Gossip Girl.
Les photos étaient magnifique, et la soirée extra ! On a surement croisé quelques personnalités suédoises…mais on ne les connait pas 😉
En tout cas, mes chaussures, ma robe et mon manteau ont eu du succés 😉
yesterday night we went to the Berns salonger, a georgous restaurant/bar/hotel/club/entertainement place in the center of the city
That night, they had 3 events going on, a party in the club downstair, a poker tournament and a show case. That’s where we went.
It was Malin Foxdal
I had a video of a song but the quality turned out quite bad so i wont bother you with it but you can check her website. It’s some kind of swedish folk music, really cool, kinda relaxing / depressing
It was super nice ! We were on the balcony overlooking the whole georgous room, having very expensive drinks (ok i got one and i still have to pay my friend back), chatting and laughing, enjoying the music. Really nice evening with the french team.
Tonight i had swedish class again and at the train station i actually asked my question in swedish instead of taking the easy way out with english. He UNDERSTOOD and answered in swedish and I UNDERSTOOD. I had the biggest smile on my smile for 15 min after that. Im on my way to ” fluentness” (yes it’s a word)
Hier soir, la french team est allé à Berns, un magnifique restaurant/bar/salle de concert dans le centre, pour écouter Malin Foxdal une chanteuse folk suédoise. C’était super sympa.
Ce soir, après le cours de suédois, mise en pratique; j’ai posé une question en suédois et l’on m’a répondu en suédois, je n’en pouvais plus de joie !!!
That’s what would say Barney from How I met your Mother
I wish it would be that simple
But it’s not and I feel really bla
But still, i decided on playing w/ my grandma’s painting
I love how it’s the exact same shade of colors as my glasses…
thanks a lot for your “get well” messages, it means a lot
Being bored, i studied some svenska, so here a today’s words :
Idol evening at my place…
some very fat food
and kinder eggs
and a stupid tv show
enjoy while it’s still on !
a quick post before älskling comes out of the shower and before my battery dies.
As usual being here is like stepping out of the real world for a little while and entering the magic carebear world…
Spent the day in bed watching old episodes of Dawson’s creek…..I know..
activity of the day: a chocolate cake has been baked and a bowl has totally been licked.
älskling’s mom’s friend got rid of a lot of clothes and i totally took some.
Like this old sweater that just screams “wear me while being in front of a fire drinking hot chocolate”
lovely evening yesterday at my friends’. We had an “American dinner” (burgers, fries, peanut butter m&m’s and brownies mums!) and we watched The french NRJ Music Awards. Was kinda fun, I fell in love (again) w/ Katy Perry, and we screamed at the TV like crazy when Enrique Iglesias kissed a random girl from the crowed. No it’ s not jealousy…it’s common sense.
One of my friend just came back from Saint Petersburg and got me this adorable brooch… she knows me so well..it’s scary sometimes 🙂 …and of course, she loved my new shoes 🙂
My mom’s family lives in the east of France where we celebrate Saint Nicolas rather than Xmas, so for us, the huge excitement was last weekend. And, it was, as usual awesome. Not perfect, because of previously “evoked” reasons, but still. My family is awesome, we laugh, we eat ALL THE TIME and…woooaa I got sooo spoiled. I won’t even list all the presents i got cause that would be too long ! But just as an example, i got a gorgeous Ipod Nano 4G Green, a software to learn Svenska by myself 😉 good luck on that, a great skirt and a beautiful neckless…that I’ll show ASAPS
Now it’s back to work… and real life. Cool news today, the dude I was supposed to do my english presentation with on tuesday 17th dropped out ! I now have one week to re write a whole new presentation ! Yeah, I only accepted to talk about sustainable energies because he said he knew a lot about it but now I’m gonna talk about something I find much more interresting : sustainable tourism. My problem is/ are: I have sooo much to do ! I’m leaving to Sweden on december 23rd and before that I need to :
- find 2 presents for älskling (actually MAKE one)
- find one present for his mom
- find myself a dress for new year
- go to the beauty shop to get my facial (present from my parents from last year that i need to use before the end of the year !)
- find a present for my friend Flo (I’m his secret Santa)
- organize a formal get together with my old classmates from 6th grade (december 19th)
- work work work works
- I still didn’t find time to watch the new “how I met your mother” or “gossip girl” 😦
- i also need to catch up on everyone’s blogs !!!!
woo I didn’t write in a little while. It sucks, but I was so busy. On monday we had chocolates that my grand parents sent, and there was one with a “Framboise” sticker on it 🙂 sooo Cool ! wooo je n’ai pas écris depuis trop longtemps, c’est nul mais j’ai été super busy toute la semaine. Lundi, on a grignoté des chocolats envoyés par mes grands parents, et il y en avait un avec un sticker “Framboise”, il m’était destiné 😉
On friday I had my very first meeting at work about the organization of the International Day 😉 it was really interresting and I can’t wait to work more on that. Then I had an awesome evening med älskling ! Happy Hours at Indiana (strawberry margartitas of course) then Dinner at Hard Rock café (really cool and good) and to finish, the flyboat 🙂 “le bateau mouche” it’s incredible how many stuff I learnt about Paris !! And I got Roses…it was just perfect. Vendredi, première réunion de travail concernant l’organisation de “l’ international day”, c’était trés interresant, j’ai hate de m’investir completement là dedans. Ensuite, super soirée avec älskling, Happy Hours à Indiana (strawberry margaritas bien sur) puis diner au hard Rock Café (super ambiance et trés bon burgers) et enfin, petit tour en bateau mouche, j’ai beaucoup appris sur les monuments de Paris ! Et j’ai même eu des roses, bref, perfect.
We just went home to sleep 6 hours and then on saturday we spent the day at “DISNEYLAND” wooot woot ! It was such a nice day, and the weather was perfect, we had a loooot of fun and managed to do everything we really wanted, we met Donald and Mickey, it was magic 😉 But woooo we were tired when we got home at 1 am ! So today’s gonna be LAZY. Nous sommes juste rentrés pour dormir 6h et le samedi nous l’avons passé chez Mickey ! une journée vraiment sympa, sous un beau soleil! On a fait une tonne de truc et même serré la pince à Donald et Mickey ! mais en rentrant, wooo crevés nous étions.
Btw, that has nothing to do with this but Mom got me a dress last weekend, I love the color, since I love blue and green this is just perfect, plus it matches my earings that I could never wear before !! au fait, mom m’a offert une robe le week end dernier, j’adore cette couleur entre le bleu et le vert mes couleurs préférées ! En plus, j’ai maintenant l’occasion de porter mes boucles d’oreilles bleu vertes !
- food, food and more food (on sunday I actually, woke up at 10, had breakfast, took a shower and lunch was ready !)
- stupid shows watching med cousins
- shopping (I’ll post a pic ASAP)
- RASPBERRIES (real and candy ones )
Too bad it was over so fast and I had to go back to work this morning aaaaaaaaaah waking up at 6.30 is just NOT possible.
Le week end à été super sympa ! Parfait, avec presque tout les cousins réunis par hasard, ce même week end chez Mario & Nicole (on à jamais dit mamie & papi) raisons de ce parfait weekend:
- bouffe, bouffe, bouffe (dimanche matin je me suis levée à 10h, j’ai petit déjeuné, en sortant de la douche la table était mise pour midi !!)
- mattage de merdes télévisuelles avec les cousins
- shopping (photo bientôt)
- FRAMBOISES (réelle et en sucre)
Dommage que l’on soit déjà lundi et qu’il faille retourner à “l’usine” aaaaaaaah se lever à 6h30 c’est juste pas possible.
