Maria, Maria, Stockholm

That’s a flag in Gamla Stan, the old city of Stockholm, and i thought it was totally appropriate for this post

wooa, i’ve missed you little blog. But it was just bad timing. 2 of my best friends over for a week, my camera breaks and then…sick. Last week, i received a package from Maria. That’s the day my camera decided to take a break. So i apologize for the bad quality of some pictures. (The good ones are taken with Sash’s camera).

Maria from Lulu Letty send me a package with not 1, not 2 but 3 surprises that totally saved me from depression that week. Some of you might remember that last july, i got lucky and won Maria’s giveway, sponsored by Pretty Good Things. I got to pick an adorable Le Teeny Beret from Pretty Good Things Etsy shop. Unfortunatly, and i think the post system is the only responsible here, the package never arrived ūüė¶¬†¬†¬†¬† I feel kind of guilty to say that Maria decided to give me hers instead.

Here is the only “good” pic of it “in action”. I got a lot of compliments about it already !

That pic was taken in a club last saturday, about 10 min before we realized we were way too old for this (pretending to enjoy ourself, trying to fight for our square meter of personal space against half naked/to much make up girls, not being able to afford drinks and moving our tired asses to Techno music). We realized all we wanted was to put on pj’s, get a cup of tea and watch a movie. People, we’re officially old.

 

Package number 2:¬†ribbons, i LOVE ribbons. I love them in my hair, on my clothes… i love the bright colors…

And finally, this georgous broche. I adore broches. But i never know how to pick them. This one is perfect, i love the color, the shape.

So, Maria, this post is for you, is is a HUGE THANK YOU !!!!!

next time, i’ll have to tell you about my crazy week and Thanksgiving !

bye, everybody, i missed ya !

Ce petit blog m’a manqu√© ! Mais entre mes amis, mon appareil photo qui se met en gr√®ve et maitenant, mon super gros rhume…√ßa c’est mal goupill√© !

Ce post est un gros merci à Maria de Lululetty pour ses beaux cadeaux qui sont arrivés au moment parfait, la semaine dernière !

J’avais gagn√©, en juillet dernier le giveway de Maria, sponsoris√© par Pretty Good Things. Malheureusement le Teeny Beret que j’avais choisi c’est perdu en chemin. Alors Maria a d√©cid√© de m’envoyer le sien !!!¬†

Elle m’a aussi envoy√© de beaux rubans pour mes cheveux et cette magnifique broche !!¬† Que dire, si ce n’est MERCI MERCI MERCI MERCI !!

A plus, faudra que je vous raconte ma semaine pleine de rebondissements et de bouffe (Thanksgiving oblige)

Shit happens. Get over it…with wonderful friends, old boysband and pancakes

So. The forum didn’t went great. It was…kinda messy. im not quite sure i wanna talk about it. I didn’t really had time to be upset about it anyway.

On wedsnesday evening i got home quite late, exhausted, frustrated, sad and scared about the coming day.¬† But a package was waiting for me in the mail. A wonderful package from wonderful Maria. It made me feel so much better. It was full of adorable little presents. And i can’t wait to share them with you. Unfortunatly my camera decided to take a break (that’s the last pic i could take). But anyway, i LOVE every single one of them and i already put them in good use yesterday night. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Bon, le forum n’a pas √©t√© un franc succ√®s. J’ai pas vraiment envie d’en parler en fait. Et puis je n’ai pas eu le temps de trop y penser.

Mercredi soir, en rentrant apr√®s la premi√®re journ√©e, crev√©e, frustr√©e, d√©√ßue et stress√©e, j’ai trouv√© un paquet dans le courrier. Un paquet en provenance de Maria. Rempli de petites surprises adorables qui mon compl√®tement remont√©es le moral. J’ai vraiment hate de vous les montrer, malheureusement mon appareil photo √† d√©cid√© de poser un RTT. (ci dessous, sa derni√®re photo)

Plus, friday, my very good friends Flo and Sash arrived. älskling got home. And it was all of us walking around in Stockholm. Shopping of course. Under the sun (no kidding). It was perfect. So i have a billion of stuff to show. I got a new dress for exemple.

Sash is american, and she makes the most wonderful and delicious pancakes. And we eat them. This morning we’ve been listening to Take That’s song “Back for good” non stop. The video clip is hilarious. The outfits / dance moves are amazing.

About cameras, Sash just got a new camera (Canon SD 1200) and i think i fell in love with it. I m thinking of getting it for Xmas….i wish i knew a little more about cameras..do you guys have any advices??¬†

Et puis, vendredi, Flo et Sash ont débarqué. Et älskling est renté. On a passé le weekend à se balader dans les rues de Stockholm, à faire du shopping bien sur, sous le soleil (oui oui).

Sash est am√©ricaine. Elle fait les plus merveilleux pancakes au monde. Et nous, on les mange.¬† On √©coute en boucle depuis ce matin “Back for good” de Take That. Le clip est priceless.

A propos d’appareil photo, je suis en train de tomber amoureuse de l’appareil de Sash, Canon SD 1200. Je suis en train d’envisager un investissement. J’amerais bien m’y conna√ģtre un peu plus…. des conseils?

Tack Maria, Tack you’ll och Tack Crispin

 first of all, a very big thank you to Maria from Lulu letty and to all the sweet bloggers that came across the interview and left very very nice comments that made my week (and it was a tough one)  !!!

Im at my grand parents this weekend, working on my presentations and looking for outfits “Embassy material”¬† (which is?).

I’ve been¬†wanting to mentionned Crispin¬†for a while now, who unlike me has been pretty productive lately and amazed my w/ some of her best work.

Exactly a month ago now she MADE me the best present ever for my bday : raspberry earings & necklace in the cuttest and tiniest raspberry box !!!
