Emilio Estevez – 13 weeks old

IMG_5423The holidays are over and Ryan and I are back home in PE again with our little puppy Emilio :) We have now had him for 11 days. He is the most amazing little guy. Never barks, super loving and affectionate, intelligent (!!!) – he already knows how to sit, stand, spin and lay down. He does his business outside, even though I have to wake up super early every morning to take him out at least he lets me know he needs to go instead of doing his business inside! Oh and he knows how to stay – sort of. He switches between hyper and asleep hahaha ;) And like the rest of the peeps in this household he is addicted to cheese..!

Hope everyone is having a great day – mine is pretty awesome :)
The weather is super nice so I’m trying to get a tan on my poor pale legs, in my (Ling Ling you forgot your..) bling bling sunglasses while listening to music and doing my nails. Just wish it was weekend and Ryan didn’t have to work so we could have a beer together outside in the sun. Hopefully the weather stays like this now – not a fan of extreme windiness like it was yesterday haha.

Summer is here!!! :)

Blondie again

20130918-145601.jpg

 

Got my hair done today – feeling all happy and blonde again :) Having a chilled day today. Went shopping for Ryan this morning then had my hair done and now waiting for the electrician to come. Can’t really pack more for the move even tho I want to haha. Really frustrating to be so excited and then have to wait! I just wanna move NOW. But only moving next sunday, and we still need to eat and stuff so can’t pack the kitchen away just yet :P other than that we have things pretty much ready to go. It’s so weird – there is not a lot of things to move. When I lived by myself I had a million things it seemed but now packing for two people there is almost nothing. It’s a good really. :)

Busy times!

Here is an update on what’s been going on lately:

We found a super nice place and are moving out/in in 2 weeks time! YAY :):) So excited! It’s a 3 bedroom townhouse and they allow small pets ;) I’m not going to post any photos of the place until we have moved in tho. I have been going Pinterest crazy lately getting inspiration for our new place. It’s gonna be so much fun to decorate and make it look all pretty! 

This weekend Ryan’s parents are coming to visit and I’m really looking forward it – just hoping they don’t mind all the moving boxes everywhere haha. The weather has been really great for a week now and it feels like summer so maybe we can all have a picnic on the beach this weekend :) Might still be too cold to swim but we can always just dip our toes! 

Yesterday was quite heavy – I had to fire the maid…. She was not happy…obviously. So much awkward silence while she was here. Gave her 2 weeks (until we move). Felt bad but there is really no need to have a maid with me at home all day.

And finally – Today is my father’s birthday!!!!! Happy b-day papi :):) 56 years old today. The best dad in the world :)

Papi and me in 2007 haha – need to get newer photos…!

As a bag lover (especially Chanel, as you already noticed) I couldn’t stay quiet with

Como uma amante de bolsas (especialmente Chanel, como vocês já perceberam)

Dinner at the Greek place.

So I went to the doctor here in Port Elizabeth today and they took some tests so I will know by next what’s going on. Hate it when they have to take blood haha I always end up being so pale that they ask me if I need to lie down for a bit! Anyway, I’m going for dinner and drinks now at the Greek place (can’t remember the name haha) with Ryan, Robin, Nikki, Martin and Mignon. Will be lovely – just hope I don’t get food poisoning this time! ;) I’m just looking forward to a nice and chilled night tonight. I’m wearing my new jacket paired with an old dress. All black and gold today.

What I’m wearing: Jacket from Mr.P / Don’t know about the dress…/ Shoes from Foschini / Earrings from Mr.P / Watch from Michael Kors / Bag (my lovely bag) from Chanel / Sunglasses from Jay Jay’s.

Braids are lovely – now if someone could just give me the long hair that these girls have I would be very very very happy ;)

Weekend baby!

Hey lovelies :) Wishing everyone an amazing weekend. I have plans for sunday that I won’t be able to tell you about just yet but I’m very very excited about it! Will hopefully tell you about it next week  ;) I think this weekend is going to be a chilled one. I am jealous of Robin and Zané who are going to see Red Hot Chili Peppers in Cape Town..! If I’m lucky then my lovely boyfriend will take me long boarding tomorrow, and maybe a quick shopping trip to Greenacres. Right now I would give my Kingdom for a horse nachos and a glass of red wine!

Sofie:

Because he is extremely hot I decided to reblog this birthday wish.. haha :)

Liebster Award!

Big big thank you to Julia from Chatoyant Makeup for nominating me for the Liebster Award :) So sweet! I didn’t really get how worked the first time around when Alison and Laura from the blog Deux Chicago nominated me (check it out here) and I just answered the questions without realizing I had to nominate other blogs. Sorry girls, I hope I get it right this time ;)

Official Rules!

1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.

2. They must also answer the 11 questions the ‘tagger’ has set for them.

3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.

4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and tag them in their post.

5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.

6. There are no tag backs.

 So 11 things about me…
1. I love Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and miss it soooo much ’cause they don’t sell it here in South Africa.
2. I am terrified of seagulls.
3. At one point in my life I watched Rocky so many times that I knew all lines and started watching it on rewind to spice things up, instead of actually watching another movie. When I say rewind I am actually talking about old school VHS where you could rewind the tape at normal speed.
4. Once I kicked my dad in the head doing a Karate Kid move. He told me he was proud.
5. For some reason I  keep having nightmares where I am about to get killed but I first have save puppies. Not sure what that means…
6. Whenever I go shopping I tell myself that I need to buy something that isn’t black but 90% of the time end up finding something black anyway. I really need more color in my wardrobe, but black always looks good.
7. I used to have a very yummy but unhealthy relationship with KitKat where I could eat like 5 chunky ones a day.
8. I really wish I could master the smokey eye, but whenever I try it just looks weird and like I’m wearing too much make up. I think my eyes are too droopy for it to work.
9. I am a clumsy person who walks into things and fall and hurt myself all the time. There is always a bruise somewhere on my body.
10. My most played games on my iPhone are ‘Oven Break’ and ‘Robot Unicorn Attack’. I am a nerd.
11. I tan very easily but I also lose my tan very quickly if I don’t keep on tanning, it sucks ’cause in winter if I don’t spend time in a solarium my skin looks almost transparent. I don’t really do fake tans because they always end up looking patchy and uneven after a couple of days.
Questions from Chatoyant Makeup

1.  What’s your favourite book?

Not sure what the book is called in english but a direct translation would be ‘A German mans Story’. Just because of his (or the translator’s..) way of writing and playing with the words. The story is really sad.

2. Is there any beauty product (like coloured eyeshadow, red lipstick) that you’re afraid of?

I stay away from lipstick in general ’cause my lips are always so dry that it ends up looking flaky and weird on me. I love a nice lipgloss or just plain vaseline instead.

3. What is your favourite movie of all-time?

Never Ending Story, Rocky, Dirty Dancing. That’s 3, the list could go on and on but I have to have them as my 1 favorite :P

4. What’s your biggest pet peeve?

People who clear their throats in a disgusting way, making me wanna vomit having to listen to it. People texting ‘u’ instead of ‘you’ – it’s already a short word! Oh and people playing with styrofoam – just looking at it makes me all goose-bumpy. I’ll take a black board over styrofoam any day.

5. Favourite YouTuber or blogger? (beauty or other)

So many lovely blogs and bloggers out there that it’s to hard to actually pick a favorite.

6. Big city lady or a small town gal?

I’ve moved around so much that I don’t even know but I do feel way more like myself in a bigger city.

7. A place you would love to travel to and why?

Mexico! For all the mexican food, the coronas, margueritas, the sun and beaches. And to be able to say ‘Si Señor’ and not sound weird. And the sombrero wearing mustache guys. Yes that is what I’m expecting haha.

8. Did you start your blog for fun or as a way to make a career in the beauty industry?

I started my blog for fun and I’m so happy that people like it and are following. It’s just a way of sharing what’s going on in my life and in my head, things I do and things I like.

9. What is your dream job?

I’m not sure I have a dream job… Actually I am sure, I don’t have a dream job but I’m sure that when I find it I will know what it is. Haha.

10. Is there a fashion or beauty trend you can’t stand?

Those horrible platform shoes – like the ones Robyn is always seen wearing. I have no idea how they made a comeback but I know that I will never wear a pair. You know the ones, right? The Spice Girls looking Buffalo type ones.

11. If you could only pick one to wear for the rest of your life… mascara or foundation?

What a horrible choice to have to make! I would go with mascara. Normally only wear tinted moisturizer anyway so screw the foundation haha :)

And here are my 11 questions for You! 

1. What is the most rewarding experience you have had and what made it so?

2. Who is your favourite super hero?

3. What really gives you the creeps?

4. What song always makes you happy when you hear it?

5. What did you wanna be when you were younger?

6. What celebrity do you think you look like?

7. What is your fav piece of clothing?

8. Do you have a favorite designer, and if so then who?

9. If you had to host a party for 5 ghosts of your choice, who would you invite?

10. Are you a dog or cat person?

11. Are you a morning person or a night person?

Getting sued for photos on your blog

Read this blog post and it freaked me out so I am now taking down all photos that I don’t have permission to use. Being able to post a few photos of celebrities on my blog is not worth getting sued for. Really guys click the link and read the article.

http://www.roniloren.com/blog/2012/7/20/bloggers-beware-you-can-get-sued-for-using-pics-on-your-blog.html

Update: I have deleted 50% of my blog posts, and deleted all photos that I don’t have permission to use from the remaining posts. My blog is looking pretty boring at moment but I have decided to just start taking more photos myself and using them instead. If I stumble upon some to die for fashion inspiration somewhere on the internet I will simply post a link to it for you guys.

Juicy pear tasting lazy friday

So, it’s friday evening and I’m sitting here watching Scrubs and daydreaming (evening-dreaming maybe?). Haven’t actually done anything at all today. I just made my friday a sunday. Way to go me! :)
You know how you some days wake up and realize that life’s too short to waste? This was not one of those days. Better luck tomorrow. I seriously need to start doing some exercising again, I’m just never tired enough to sleep and never awake enough to do anything constructive. Bad circle. I’m giving myself the weekend and then start on monday again. Hate the swedish weather, makes it impossible to take a walk outside. It’s too cold, and I can’t find my winter jacket haha. I packed it with the rest of my stuff when I moved and now I can’t find it. I guess it might be somewhere in the shed outside.

I’ve been drinking non-alcohol sugar-free pear drinks all week and I just cannot seem to get enough. I love it.
Need to wake up kind of early tomorrow cause I have to study all day. Learning how to design a website is so much hard work! Have a big test coming up on tuesday and need to spend the entire weekend (and monday) preparing for it.

Anyway I’m gonna watch a movie now and then go to bed. Missing my love like a crazy person right now.
Good night everyone!
