Ciaté Dolls House Collection Review

dollhousecollectionreview

Good Afternoon! (Or morning or whatever it is where you are right now!)

So, it’s January. The Christmas/boxing day sales are still on but the major chaos that comes along with these sales have pretty much disappeared completely and with that I finally dared to have a look around to see if there was anything actually worth getting. Usually on these sales there’s just things you don’t really want or things that are of half decent quality and you come home with the feeling that you kind of just threw your money in the bin. Because of this feeling I’ve been careful with what I’ve been buying during the sales in 2014 and I think I’ve done a pretty good job, including this time.

One of the items I picked up this time was the Ciaté Dolls House Collection which is a nail polish collection with five different mini nail polishes in it. I’ve actually never owned a Ciaté nail polish before (if you can believe it) but I’ve heard great things about them so I thought I might as well try them out.

First of all I just have to say that the packaging of this is to die for. I saw some of the other collections Ciaté does when I as out and about as well and all of them are so cute. I really love the fact that they’re all inside a little dolls house and get their own window and all that and I also think it’s really nice if you’d like to display them in your home since it’s so adorable. In this collection you get, as I said before, 5 different colour polishes; a soft mint, a peach, a lilac, a beige/nude colour and one white, all of which have really cute names.

These polishes all have a matte finish and I have to admit that I’ve never really been a fan of the matte nail polishes. I think they’re hard to work with, leave loads of streaks and they chip quite easily. Despite this, I still picked these polishes up because I simply couldn’t resist the minty Sweet Pea colour. This is also the only colour I’ve been able to try out so far. I know a lot of people like changing their colour as often as every other day but I find that this really harms the nails so I try to keep my polishes on until they start looking a bit cracked and chipped.

Sweet Pea is a really lovely colour. It’s minty and fresh and I would say that it’s great for spring but I think you could just wear it all year around. It also feels quite strong. It doesn’t leave the nails really soft and bendable which is a problem I have with some polishes. This is, I’m afraid, where the positive feedback stops and the mixed feelings start.

I’m all about quick drying nail polishes. The worst thing I know is having to wait around, for what feels like hours sometimes, for your nails to dry only to find out that you accidentally bumped into something or your hair got stuck on one nail and there’s now an ugly little cut on it. So when it comes to quick drying I’m quite impressed considering it only took between 30-40 seconds for a nail to dry. This, however, makes the polish very awkward to deal with. Since matte colours already are hard to get an even finish with you don’t want any other factors making that any harder. The quick drying, in this case, made that quite a lot harder.I was sitting there trying to apply an even coat when the colour quickly just started to drag around and make really ugly streaks and the colour didn’t want to stay on. After a few nails you’d learnt this and tried doing it as quickly as possible. It turned out a bit better, but since I’m so extremely clumsy it now looked like my 4 year old cousin had painted my nails instead of me.

In the end, I decided to apply two coats of polish to get it somewhat even, to get the streaks out and to make it look okay. This is a big deal for me since I always just apply one coat due to being too impatience to wait for it to dry. On top of that I applied my favourite top coat, Seche Vite, and for my base coat I always use one from Sally Hansen. I find that using a top coat really helped the polish with the whole “4-year-old painted my nails” look as it looked a lot more clean than with just the polish. It will obviously help with chipping as well so always try wear a top coat if you don’t already.

My final thoughts on this collection is that the colours and the packaging are gorgeous. The fact that it quick dries is amazing but you have to work fast and if you’re clumsy like me you are going to end up with a bit of a mess so have some cotton buds and nail polish remover at hand so you can clean up afterwards. You also want to make sure you do work quickly so you don’t get the ugly streaks on your nails and it’s definitely worth to apply 2-3 coats just to get it that way.

When it comes to chipping, mine hasn’t started to chip yet after a few days but I think that’s all thanks to the top coat. I think you should definitely invest in a good top coat if you paint your nails a lot. Since I used a shiny top coat my nails aren’t as matte as they would be without it but if you’d like to keep that completely matte look I’d suggest purchasing a matte top coat. Also, remember that a good base coat is just as important. Especially if you use darker or more pigmented colours since they tend to discolour your nails, leaving them yellow and looking horrible.

I would recommend this collection to people who don’t rage that easily and who can be bothered to redo them if they turn out bad, or simply some who just doesn’t care about streaks and finishes and is only in it for the colours!

recipiebook9

I have recently bought this “make your own cookbook” or  “store your recipes book”, or whatever you want to call it, thing. Being a vegetarian, and wanting to go vegan, it’s kind of essential that you can cook, at least a little bit. I’m not going to lie and say that I can’t cook at all because I know a little but, but I’m quite dependent on recipes still and I needed somewhere to store them so I bought this little thing to help me out with that. I think I paid about £11 for the whole book and 50 sheets which I think is a pretty good deal! Perhaps I’d even post a few recipes on here if anyone’s interested!

So, what’s your favourite nail polish colour? Or maybe just colour over all?

My Top 5 Books of 2014

top5books2014

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you!

So another year has passed and I have no idea where it went. It’s been both a good and an extremely bad year that has passed but one of the better things is definitely all the books I’ve gotten to read! Now, I haven’t read quite as many books as I’ve wanted to because of different reasons so I hope that I can catch up on reading in 2015. However, I did read enough books for a top 5 list to be created so here it is!

Note: These books might not have been released in 2014 but I read them in 2014 and therefore they’re allowed to be here!

sherlock

5. Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

We can all surly agree that this book wasn’t written in 2014, but I did start to read it. I’ve got the copy of Sherlock Holmes which is called The Complete Novels and Stories: Volume 1. Out of all the stories in this book I read A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four, A Scandal In Bohemia and The Read-headed League. More than that I didn’t manage because after that I received a huge pile of book that I’d ordered and I completely forgot that I was reading it. the reason I decided to read it was because I’ve watched all of the episodes of the TV-series Sherlock (When will we ever get season 4?) and I really wanted to read the original stories so I went and picked this book up. if you’ve watch either any of the films about Sherlock Holmes or for example the TV-Series Sherlock or Elementary, and chances are that you have, then you’ll know some of the stories involving Sherlock Holmes. If you haven’t, however, I can tell you that we get to follow Sherlock Holmes (duh) and his companion Dr. John Watson on their many adventures solving crimes since Sherlock is a consulting detective due to his fantastic abilities with logical thinking and reasoning and I honestly don’t know how to describe him to give him justice so if you really have no idea, read the book or watch one of the TV-series. All I can say is that I wish I had the brain of Sherlock Holmes sometimes!

papertowns5

4. Paper Towns by John Green

I feel that one of the top authors of 2014 have been John Green. With The Fault In Our Stars in the spotlight for most of the year, but also the filming of Paper Towns, John Green and his excellent books have really gotten a lot of attention, and rightfully so. I have not included The Fault In Our Stars in my top 5 this year simply because I didn’t read it in 2014, I read it in 2013, so I thought that’d be cheating. A book I did read in 2014 though was Paper Towns. God, Paper Towns. This is such an amazing book and I think I might even reread it. This book follows the life of Quentin “Q” Jacobsen and his very eccentric and adventurous neighbour Margo Roth Spiegelman. One night Margo appears at Q’s bedroom window and convinces him to come with her out and get revenge on the people that have hurt her. The next day of school, however, she’s not there and after a few days she’s reported missing. Q and Margo used to be friends when they were younger but they grew apart over the years though Q has always been a little bit in love with her. This book honestly kept me on the edge of my seat all the way though, it’s really the modern (and teenage) version of an adventure and I wish I hadn’t read it so quickly because I was quite sad when it was over… until I jumped into my next book!

“I’m not saying that everything is survivable. Just that everything except the last thing is.”

divergenstriopng

3. The “Divergent” Trilogy by Veronica Roth.

I’m sure that if you’re somewhat into films or books you must have at least heard of Divergent by now. In 2014 I found out about it and all of a sudden I’d read the whole trilogy. If you’re a person who struggles to read books I’d really recommend these books because they’re extremely easily read but so good at the same time. I went through them really quickly and I have to admit that I cried a little bit when I had finished the last one. I know a lot of people really hate the ending and I agree with them to some extend. I have a real love/hate relationship with the ending of this series but I still really love the books. I think they’re quite unique, even though they’ve been compared a lot with the Hunger Game due to them both being in a dystopian setting, but I don’t think that’s a fair comparison since their universes are a lot different.

I don’t want to spoil too much of the plot but we get to follow the main character Beatrice “Tris” Prior and her life in future Chicago, a city where the citizens are divided into factions. They get given a faction to go to depending on their personality but if they don’t feel that they fit in there, they can choose something else. I just really fell in love with their whole world, no matter how corrupt or broken it is.

“Becoming fearless isn’t the point. That’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.”

looking4alaska

2. Looking For Alaska by John Green.

If it is the year of John Green it is. Looking For Alaska was one of my absolute favourite books this year, and probably even one of my all time favourite books as well. (I would include Will Grayson, Will Grayson on this list as well but I thought John Green just had to settle for two spots on the list.) This book is so amazing, funny, thrilling but also so heart breaking. The main character in this book, Miles “Pudge” Halter, has decided to leave home to go to High School at a boarding school. There he meets some new friends, one of them being Alaska Young. I think that Alaska is the most important person in this book. She’s a moody and unpredictable person who appears confident but is actually very broken on the inside. I don’t actually want to say another word about this book because I just think that anyone who can should read this book. I don’t cry over books that often but this one had me sitting in a puddle after a while. I just have one thing to say and that is, if you’re reading this John Green; please let me play Alaska, she is quite possibly my most favourite character ever.

“Thomas Edison’s last words were ‘It’s very beautiful over there’. I don’t know where there is, but I believe it’s somewhere, and I hope it’s beautiful.”

mortalinstruments453

1. The Mortal Instruments; City of Bones, City of Ashes and City of Glass by Cassandra Clare.

I was going to put Looking For Alaska as my number one favourite book of 2014 but then I realised that couldn’t because I have fallen completely in love with everything that is the world of The Mortal Instruments. I love the runes and the shadowhunters, the weapons and the enemies, the relationships and the world. I think I love everything about this world. I think the humour, the love and the fantasy combined is what makes these books so good. I really feel like I can connect with the characters as well which isn’t always easy.

I have so far only read three of the books but I have the fourth one on my shelf and I’ll hopefully be reading that one soon enough. These books are about Clary Fray, a girl who seems pretty normal until she see some people and some things she are not supposed to see. After that her mother goes missing and her world is turned upside down. Like I said previously, I don’t want to spoil anything of any of these books so I won’t do so. They made the first book into a film in 2013. I have not seen this film yet since I hate watching films when I have books left to read. I think that ruins the whole book for you because all of a sudden you can’t imagine the world like you would, you’ve instead gotten a world, and people, placed in your head and I think that’s some of the magic taken out of reading books so please, if you haven’t seen the film yet, read the books first! And if you have seen the film, read the books anyway!

“Mom. I have something to tell you. I’m undead. Now, I know you may have some preconceived notions about the undead. I know you may not be comfortable with the idea of me being undead. But I’m here to tell you that undead are just like you and me … well, okay. Possibly more like me than you.”

What was your favourite book of 2014?

I’ll leave with this quote by C.S. Lewis. Something I try think about when life goes to hell, or on New Years eve. Whichever works.

“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind”

Swedish Christmas Traditions

swedishchristmastradition

Good afternoon!

I’ve not exactly been very active lately because I’ve had a lot going on in my life these past weeks and even though I’ve been off college on sick leave I’ve not really done a lot. We did however go out to see the last part of The Hobbit when it had it’s premier, which was amazing by the way so definitely check that out if you haven’t already (which you should of). Anyway, today I wanted to talk about our Swedish Christmas traditions since Christmas is quite a big deal over here. I’m going to talk about general Swedish Christmas traditions that pretty much everyone would agree is one but also those that I see is traditions but other swedes might not so it’ll be a mix of all of Sweden’s opinions and my own!

I’m going to start with saying that we don’t celebrate Christmas, like most other countries, on the 25th of December (Christmas Day) since we celebrate on the 24th of December (Christmas Eve). In my family we do, however, also celebrate on the 25th a little bit. My mum and I always celebrate Christmas on the 25th together with some of her friends. This is something we’ve done for as long as I remember and has become a tradition for us.

Kalle Anka och hans vänner önskar God Jul (or From All of Us to All of You):

This must be, by far, one of Sweden’s biggest Christmas traditions. From All of Us to All of You is a TV programme that airs every Christmas Eve at 3 pm. It’s a collection of little Christmas Disney clips such as Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse, Cinderella, Snow White, Robin Hood and more. every year there are also new clips from some of that years new Disney films. The amount of people that actually watch this show is insane. Last year, 2013, about 3 560 000 people watched this show. That’s about 40% of the entire population and that’s quite a lot of people. I think this show is one of Sweden’s most watched shows every year as well. Personally, I think it’s becoming quite boring (watch every Swede jumping at me with a knife after saying this). It’s just that after watching the same thing for about 17 year you king of know what’s going to happen. I do however tend to join in at the end when all the new clips are shown since that’s something I’ve not seen before.

Kalle_Anka_och_hans_vänner_önskar_God_JulKalle-Anka-och-hans-vänner-onskar-God-jul

Julbord (The Christmas food)

So the Julbord is essentially just the Christmas food but with this come some traditions on it’s own. I’m fairly certain that the Julbord first appeared during the medieval times as one of their traditions but started to expand as the tradition we have today during the 20th century. I also believe that the other Scandinavian countries, like Norway and Finland, also have the Julbord but with their own traditions in it. In Sweden, the most essential things to have on the Julbord is the Christmas ham, meatballs, mini sausages (called prinskorv, which freely translated means prince sausage) and pickled herring. Unfortunately for me, I can’t eat any of this since I don’t eat meat but my lovely mum, and my lovely family, always makes sure to make me the vegetarian versions, as well as possible. Another thing some people have on their Julbord is Lutfisk (Lyefish/Stockfish). This, I think, is extremely disgusting. You make it by adding dry fish into lye and let it lie in that for about two weeks. After that you boil it and serve it for Christmas. I’m not entirely sure that’s ho you make it since I don’t like it and everyone buy it premade.

When it comes to Christmas desserts, we don’t really have any. I know in other countries things like Christmas pudding is quite important but over here we don’t have anything like that. Instead we make loads and loads of sweets and cookies and if I have to pick one sweet that’s the most “iconic” Swedish Christmas sweet it must be Knäck. Knäck is like a toffee. it can either be really hard or quite soft and chewy, it all depends on the makers preference. All there is to it is just equal parts sugar, heavy cream and golden syrup (about 2-3 dl of each). You put all of that in a saucepan and boil it for about 15 minutes. It’s ready when you can put the mixture in a glass of cold water and make it into a small little ball. When it’s ready you traditionally also add chopped almonds (30-50 grams) and then pour it into special knäck liners which is like muffin liners but a lot smaller.

Gingerbread and Gingerbread houses.

So, gingerbread. Gingerbread is one of the most Christmasy things in my opinion. You know that when they start selling gingerbread (and also Julmust which is a nice Christmas drink), you know Christmas really is coming along. I think that a lot of people around the world now are starting to see gingerbread as a Christmas thing and I’ve seen a lot of people online making gingerbread houses so I don’t think this is a Swedish thing only but it’s definitely one of the best tradition. Moving on the the gingerbread houses, this is a big deal to me. I love making a gingerbread house ever year. Even if they turn out really bad it’s still the best way to get me into the Christmas spirit. This might be because of the fact that in my hometown, where I lived until I was about 12, people made really amazing gingerbread houses and entered a competition every year. Some years these houses are just mindblowing. If you want to make a gingerbread house of your own you can either make one yourself or go out and buy one. Even if you don’t live in Sweden, I’m pretty sure you can get them out and about, at least at Ikea!

Here are some of the houses from the competition in my hometown last year. the left one is of one of the fish shops down in the harbour in my hometown and the right one is Bag End from Lord Of The Rings.

Top 4: DROPDEAD Winter 2014 Collection

Good evening!

So today I was just sitting in college, reading my book, and realised that it’s November 28th. Not only does that mean that it’s my birthday tomorrow, but also that Drop Dead’s new Winter collection is out! I’ve been extremely excited about this for weeks now, but sadly I don’t think I’ll be getting any of it anytime soon due to being a bit broke. Since it’s my birthday tomorrow, me, my mum and dad and Josh are going out to shop, eat and then perhaps watch Mockingjay: Part One! Depending on what I get tomorrow, I might do a little haul post but for now I want to talk about my top 4 favourite items from the new Drop Dead range!

ddwinter2014

So I will do this in no particular order since I had too hard of a time to pick a favorite!

Snow Parka (Green) £130

greenparkaddsnow-parka-girls-greendd

I’m completely in love with not only this kind of design, I love these kinds of coats, but I’m also terribly in love with the colour of this coat. I love green, it is probably my favourite colour, and this one on a coat is really lovely. It is also available in red but I really find this green one a lot more appealing. It’s got a nice zip up, which I prefer to only buttons since it gets quite cold over here during the winters and you want to be able to seal it properly to not freeze to death. However, it’s got very stylish button designs on the pockets, sleeves and inside which I like a lot. The only downside of this coat, according to me, is that 50% of the material is wool. Now, due to ethical reasons I do not agree with making anything out of a material taken from animals. I know you actually don’t kill the sheep when sheering it but I still feel a bit uncomfortable with it. I’m not going to say that I’m perfect with keeping all my products cruelty free since my budget won’t allow it, plus i’ts quite hard to actually know what’s what today, but I try my best. Overall, I really love this coat and I really wish I could afford buying it cause it looks so good.

Fangz Crop Shirt £30

fangz3_grandeddfangz-top-frontdd

Now, I need to start this off with saying that I do not own a single crop top, and I never have, that doesn’t mean I don’t like them though, The only reason I don’t wear them is because I don’t feel comfortable wearing them with the body type I’ve got, but seeing this one, I might just change my mind. This is a nice, black crop top with little white vampire fangs all over it. I really love vampires, and something else I also love is collars, especially white ones. At first I thought a collar would look really strange on a crop top but I really like the way it looks on this one. It also comes with a back split and a button on on the back of the neck which I think looks quite cute. I really love this crop top and even though £30 might be a bit expensive for a crop top, I think it’d definitely be worth it!

No Friends Dress £35

nofriendsdress_grandeddno-friends-dressdd

I never used to wear dresses. When I was a kid I always walked around in a T-shirt and sweatpants and I would not for the life in me put on a dress. I’m still a bit skeptical when it comes to dresses and skirts but I have found, and bought, a few that I really love and I would definitely be up to adding this one to the collection. This is a nice black dress with, again, a white collar which makes the dress so much more amazing in my opinion. On the front it’s got a print of a cute little cat (if I’m not completely out of my mind here) who’s having a doughnut. It’s got cats and doughnuts, I mean, what’s not to love? This also features the button in the back, just like on the crop top, which looks extremely good as well.

Peace Walker Boots £100

boots-1_grandedd

Finally, we have the Peace Walker Boots. So, a lot of people who know me very well probably don’t know that I really love shoes. Probably because I don’t own a lot of pairs and also because I almost only ever wear my black Converse. Anyway, one of my favourite types of shoes are just boots. I only own two pairs right now but really wouldn’t mind receiving these for Christmas. These have got a really nice black design with golden details with really lovely laces. they have only got a small heel which I prefer over the bigger heels since I’m quite tall. I’m also forever grateful for them not being in real leather so that I can actually buy them!

Just to finish this off, if you don’t know who Drop Dead are, you can check out their about page and shop HERE! And also, of course all the photos belong to Drop Dead so all the credit to them!

The Theory of Everything Review

Good afternoon!

Yesterday, Josh and I decided that we wanted popcorn but needed an excuse to get some so we decided to watch a film. Scrolling through the list of newly released films, we stumbled upon The Theory of Everything. Now, I, surprisingly, hadn’t heard a single word about this film. I didn’t know what it was so, curious as I am, I looked it up and I was not disappointed to know that this film was all about the life of Stephen Hawking life together with his wife Jane. Knowing this, I got extremely excited and decided that we had to watch it. Both Josh and I are all about science so it wasn’t a difficult decision. Now, I am not some sort of film critic or anything like that, but I just really needed to share this film so I do apologise if I do it horribly!

x900

The film starts off in 1963 (if I remember correctly) with a young Stephen Hawking at Cambridge University where he’s trying to find a subject to work with for his PhD in physics. Out for a party one night, he meet Jane, and undergrad in foreign languages, and you can almost see the sparks in the air in between them. They hit it of extremely well and get together. However, at 21, Stephen gets his terrible diagnosis; motor neurone disease. It seems at first, when meeting the doctor, that he’s not that worried for his body, he’s only worried about his brain. His doctor tells him that his brain will remain unharmed, and Stephen then looks quite relieved. However, Stephen shuts himself away and refuses to speak, or be around, anyone since he’s given only two years to live and wants to focus on his work. Jane refuses to give up on him and talks him out of this, and they end up getting married and have children. Stephen also receives is PhD in physics and keeps on working, even though he’s illness is getting worse and worse and he eventually cannot speak anymore. In the end, they end up having three children, but their marriage cannot be saved. They remain friends and are happy for each other. The film ends after Stephen has released his book “A Brief History of Time” and is offered knighthood by the Queen; something he declines.

the.theory.of_.everything.wedding

I watched this film, not knowing what to expect, but I was not, on any level, disappointed. This is a beautiful film, about both a beautiful, and tragic, story. Based on the book “Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen”, written by his former wife Jane Wilde Hawking, you really get to see a different side of Stephen Hawking’s life. I was expecting a lot more science in this film, but this film is not about science at all, It’s about the life of a brilliant man, his family and also all of his struggles. I have to admit that I cried a few times because it’s extremely touching and even though I expected a lot more science, I really didn’t mind the fact that not a lot of it was involved.

I also want to give Eddie Redmayne (Stephen Hawking in the film) big credit here. He played his role so brilliantly, I was really astonished. For a person who’s not got the illness that Stephen Hawking’s got, but still played the role so believably and excellent, I can only bow down and applause him; and perhaps possibly give him a high five. Everything he does in this film is amazing. Everything from the facial expressions, the body movements (and not body movements) to the jokes and the way he speaks is just like I wanted it to be. I actually got the feeling that he was the real Stephen Hawking (which is king of the point I suppose) and that is real good acting. If Eddie is not receiving all the rewards after this, I really don’t know who will.

Finally, I just want to say that even if you’re not into science you should really watch this film. It’s a brilliant piece of work about a brilliant mind and I think I have found my new current favourite film. It was worth every minute of my time.

Max Factor Facefinity All Day Primer Review

Hello! Good Morning! Good Afternoon!

A few weeks ago I was out shopping together with Josh and my mum and came across Max Factors new Facefinity primer. I didn’t actually know that they had released it, but was quite excited about it since I had been looking for a somewhat good primer to an affordable price. I really, really enjoy Benefit’s POREfessional and the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, but being the broke student that I am I wanted to find something a bit cheaper that I can wear on a daily basis so I bought this one!

Max Factor Review

Now a few weeks later I thought it was time to actually write a review on it so here it is!

Okay, so Max Factor’s new Primer is essentially their Facefinity Compact Foundation but without the Foundation. It contains the same Flexi-Hold technology and micro correctors as in the foundation which makes it excellent for keeping the shine away from your face. The primer is made so the foundation can last all day which is thanks to this technology. The way it works is that it absorbs all the excess oil and moist in your skin, leaving you with a foundation that lasts all day, even if you’ve got dry skin!

Does it live up to everything it promises though? I think yes, yes it does. After using it for a few weeks I’ve noticed the difference in my skin. I’ve got quite a weird skin type. It’s technically a dry combination but sometime it can get very oily in random places as well. However, after I started using it, my skin has started to even out and just be normal skin all over. It also minimizes the pores and fine lines a bit, something I was not expecting. It’s not as good in that area as the POREfessional for example, but I think it’s worth mentioning.

Overall I think this primer is a fairly good one, great even since it’s quite cheap! It’s lightweight, smooth, transparent and lovely. Now I can’t say that it works for every skin type since I only have my own to try on but Max Factor says it works for every skin type so I think it’s definitely worth a shot!

You can find the primer here (or most likely in your local drugstore):

First post!

Hello.

Well isn’t this scary… and also suddenly became a bit awkward. Anyway, Hi!

I’m Wilma. I’m 16 years old and I live in Stockholm, Sweden. I have a bit of an obsession with everything between books, video games, TV-shows to beauty, clothes and DIY. I like a bit of everything!

I’m currently at college doing the social science programme. This is not, however, what I’d like to do. I originally planned on doing the science programme, but after laying at home, being sick with mononucleosis for 5 months I had to change to the social science programme to be able to continue college. It’s a real bummer since nothing about politics and law interest me but in about a year and a half I’ll do science and then hopefully get good enough grades to apply for the veterinary course at Uni.

Enough about that, back to the whole blogging thing. I decided, after many months of consideration, to start my own blog. I have a lot on my mind all the time, and need somewhere to put all the thoughts, so I thought, why not here? Perhaps someone finds it interesting, or maybe even helpful!

I’ve not chosen a specific topic, like some people do, to blog about. I’ll just write about what’s on my mind and hope it’ll be enjoyable!

Lots of love,

Wilma.
