Had an awesome long weekend in Mossel Bay On Thursday it was just me, Nikki, Zané and Niki staying at the River Shack. We had drinks played games, went to the beach, got creeped out by spiders and had fun.
On Friday morning after a 3 hour sleep me, Nikki and Zané went on a 3 hour horse riding excursion thingy. It was awesome to gallop in the sand dunes Unfortunately we had no place to put our phones so we couldn’t take any photos. Actually most of the weekend I didn’t have any batteries on my phone do I didn’t take a lot of photos at all. But lucky the other peeps did so I will steal photos from them later to post on my blog! After the horse riding we started prepping for the rest of the guys to arrive so we prepared the food for the braai and had a few drinks. When they all arrived we partied by the fire and had fun. The next day we drove to had lunch at some place packed with bikers and then partied again but had an early night.
Sunday we drove back to PE and crashed in front on the tv at home. The weekend was really heavy on my body and I have been feeling sick since yesterday But no time to chill haha tomorrow we are driving down to Cape Town for another long weekend packed with fun
Here is something that I completely forgot to blog about. Last year we (me, Ryan, Robin, Martin, Nikki, Preller and Sam) all drove down from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town to go to the last Homegrown party ever on nov 3rd. We only started driving at like 6pm so we got to Cape Town at about 4 in the morning haha. 2 cars 7 peeps. The next day we met up with Zané, Niki, Brett and Alisha to party. We went to the Last Homegrown ever and the next day we all drove back again. It’s about 8 hours one way to drive haha. So here are some photos and a video that my boyfriend and his brother made from that party - which was insane!!
On our way to the Waterfront.
Lunch and drinks somewhere by the Waterfront. I’m the BOSS haha.

This afternoon a package arrived for me from my mom. All the way from Sweden to Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Only takes about 1 1/2 months haha. Good thing she didn’t send me cheese! Instead I got a package of hand made things. Hand made as in made by my mom!
I got this lovely blanket – at the moment its lying on my bed as a throw or whatever it’s called.
Second thing I got was this hood-thingy. And as you can see my mom made it my fashion Fashion by Sofie. How sweet!
The third thing my mom made are these wrist warmers, not sure if that’s what they are actually called but I’m calling them that from now on haha. They are mine so I can call them whatever I want. I could call them Bernardies if wanted to, but I don’t, so I won’t, As you can see my little logo is on them too. Fashion by Sofie. I like it. Having my own logo. Also the wrist warmers are insanely fluffy and soft. Will be nice when it’s winter (a months from now).
The final thing in my package was this….troll? Yes, a troll. Wearing earrings that I will steal from him. Not sure if my mom made the earrings as well, she said it was all hand made so I’m guessing she did. Did you?
Thank you so much for the presents mom!

Obviously the world did not end today haha. Sorry peeps in bunkers all over the world that wasted your day. After going to Table Mountain I had a nice and chilled picnic lunch in the park with Ryan, my dad and Lena today. Baguettes, cheeses, potato salad, greek salad, crostinis and cashews = YUM. The weather was amazing, 36 degrees! We were supposed to go on a sunset cruise this evening but the weather changed into this:
So Ryan and I have been chilling at home instead. Tomorrow Zané and Robin are back in town and its party time again ; ) I’m excited! And just a few days til Christmas!!!
My dad and his wife have been here since Monday and Ryan and I have been doing a whole bunch of stuff with them – been to the beach in Camps Bay, went for a drive and spotted a whale, had a LOT to eat and drink at different restaurants, went to the Waterfront and today we took a cable car up Table Mountain. So beautiful up there with the most amazing view.
Lovely day today Had lunch, nachos what else haha, and yummy drinks at the Fat Cactus with Zané and Olivia and am now getting ready for Bitch Bingo today to celebrate Zané’s birthday Got a super nice package from my dad and his wife back in Sweden full of clothes and licorice! Love it!! :)
Hello again my lovelies! I have been very absent and non-blogging since we left Port Elizabeth. But for a very good reason – Beer. Haha It has been lots of fun this week, the last week before the Ryan and Robins surf trip to Indonesia. And after a heavy night last night I said good bye and off they went this morning. 32 days. Crazy!
We have been drinking beer every day this week because it was a holiday and all, also because every second word Robin said was ‘Beer’ haha. So now it’s time to calm down a bit, get back into healthier habits and explore this city! Not saying I won’t party, I just won’t party all the time, party all the time, party all the tiiiiiiiiime – like Eddie Murphy’s girl wants to. Haha lame I know but anyway….
Here are a few photos from yesterday’s drive with Ryan, Robin and their parents.

Stopped for some ice-cream after lunch.
Checking for sharks!

Last night turned out to be a little bit heavier than planned – and I am feeling it today. I wasn’t dressed for party (wearing a 3/4 sleeve baseball t-shirt, black pants and heels) but that didn’t stop the little party animal inside me from rocking and partying like it was 1999 (Yes that was a Prince reference). Good night though But I don’t feel like leaving this bed today haha just thankful that Robin had to get his hair cut and came home with something to eat. Spinach and feta bread, Pringles in 3 different flavors, KitKat and apple juice. Yum.
This is how I’m feeling…just a little less fabulous…
I can’t believe it’s only 4 days left before we leave to Cape Town! I am so excited!! Still have to pack, but think sunday is a good day for that. These 3 months here in Port Elizabeth just flew by, feels like we just got here. Lately I have been feeling so happy and excited about everything, love it. I think the weather has had something to do with it, the heat and the sunshine is good for me.
Having gone a bit overboard with the exercising this week ended with me having a fever yesterday. My body’s way of saying ‘Chill out!’. But today I am feeling hundreds again and will take it easy with todays workout. Instead of jogging/power walking 25K (like I did on monday) I will just follow Tracy Anderson’s moves on one of my dvd’s. She always manages to make me kick my own butt haha. I was actually looking to buy her Metamorphosis dvd’s but it turns out that you can only get them from her own website http://tracyandersonmethod.com/. With all the weird customs rules and charges and stuff I’m gonna pass on those dvd’s.

Later today there are hellos and goodbyes to said over drinks at Bridge Street Brewery. Lovely weather today so it will be the perfect place
Feeling way better today my arms are a bit sore but no fever or anything! Yay! Went shopping with Ryan at Walmer Park, a nice change from Greenacres. So much more organized and clean than Greenacres – loved it. We were trying to find a pair of sweat pants for Ryan but that seems pretty impossible – will just have to wait until saturday when we get to Jeffreys Bay, at least there we know that RVCA will have some. Anyway, I found a pair of shoes at Rage that I fell in love with! I have been looking for a cool pair of nude colored heels since like forever and finally I got a pair. They only got them at Rage 2 days ago.
After the short shopping trip we went to eat lunch at Tarantino’s. Nachos Because nachos rock. Love mexican food. Maybe I used to be mexican in a previous life or something. That would explain why I keep saying things like ‘Sí Señor!’…

I started my day by eating a healthy breakfast, egg white omelette and coffee… Then went for a 5K jog down by the beach. Awesome. Went back home and put on one of Robins old wetsuits and went surfing for an hour with Ryan. More awesomeness. Got back and had cookies and pringles. Not so awesome. And have since been feeling kind of crap. Like I have a fever almost. So I have been lying in bed drinking tea while the guys are playing games. Didn’t expect surfing to be so tough on my poor little body! Ryan just said it might have been too much sun for me today. It was nice though Being pushed onto waves and pretending I was flying with my arms wide like they were my wings and the surfboard my plane haha. I’m so normal, I’m in the water on a surfboard pretending that I’m flying on clouds instead of white water. I did manage to get two waves on my own without being pushed – tough work for my arms. No way I’m standing up on that thing with my balance all over the place. Maybe if I had one of those stand up paddle (SUP) boards… I really wanna try that! A better fitting wetsuit would have been cool also, so the freezing water don’t leak in everywhere. Even my feet hurt now… surfing is not for me, but a great workout! Anyway, time to watch a movie and then sleep. Haha wanted to say time to go to bed but I’m already in bed! Good night! xoxo

I was just looking through some old photos on my computer when I stumbled upon a few photos from a random photo shoot for Streaks Ahead (a hair salon) in Durban. They gave me the craziest alien looking hair and the other poor girl had strings all over her face haha. It was quite fun though, everything but putting that nasty cocktail cherry in my mouth!
The last photo was obviously not going to be used haha it was just for fun. The whole thing was just for fun I guess – never heard from them about what happened to the photos, but they were supposed to be used in an ad on East Coast Radio‘s website for Streaks Ahead. I didn’t even get all the photos from the shoot which is kind of sad, it would have been fun to see the rest but ah well.

I kept my promise to myself and went jogging this morning Did a 8K jog/power walk. It was a beautiful morning and after my jog I was feeling on top of the world and have been all day really, in such a good mood. Went for an early lunch at the Bridge Street Brewery with Ryan. I feel like we go there a LOT, and we do, but I mean why not when the food is super yum and the place is really cool. I was told by my dear boyfriend today that no one really says ‘super yum’ which I thought was crazy so now I’m going to say it more often just because haha. Anyway, I had a
super yum lovely greek salad, trying to be healthier and all but I suspect it really wasn’t all that healthy cause I mostly just ate the feta cheese and the olives, and to finish it all off I had a KitKat haha. Ryan had the bread board and home made style fries (chips). The bread board is probably the best thing to eat at Bridge Street Brewery, if you don’t eat meat cause I really wouldn’t know what the meat is like.
Outfit of the day: Sweater from YDE, Sunglasses from MNG / Mango, Leggings from Von Zipper, Belt from Foschini, Shoes from Mr.P./Mr. Price, Bag from Chanel and my lovely new (got it yesterday) bracelet from YDE / Young Designers Emporium.

Hello guys! I haven’t been able to blog since friday, for some weird reason wordpress just didn’t want to work. It took me forever to try and load a page and my Dashboard didn’t work at all. Not much new to tell you about… had a power failure on saturday from 6:30 am to 7:30 pm. Partying in the dark haha. Robin, Ryan, Preller and I had a few beers in the dark while using up the battery life on our MacBook Pro’s and iPads. On sunday we watched some movies and chilled. Loved ‘John Carter’ and ‘Contraband’! Not sure I was loving Kate Beckinsale as a blonde, but she’s a good actress anyway.
Today has been really nice, went for lunch at ‘the Coachman’ with Ryan to celebrate our 3 years and 8 months together. Had a lovely meze platter with hallumi, calamari, mushrooms, fries and salad. YUM!
Had a very chilled Friday. Mother Nature heard me and gave us a beautiful day here in Port Elizabeth. Spent most of the day on the balcony in the sun listening to music. Wonderful. A perfect day to do nothing. Can’t wait for tomorrow when Martin and Nikki gets back from playing with the Big Five! I’m not jealous… I just wanna play with giraffes. Nikki and I already played with lions back in 2009/2010. Anyway people, see you later
Hope you all have a lovely weekend
Lovely day today – Woman’s Day and all We decided to go for lunch and enjoy the sunshine on the balcony at ‘The Kelway Hotel’. Turns out that there is absolutely nothing vegetarian to eat there so we just had a beer and chilled for a little while. I think Robin needs couches like these on his balcony
What I wore today: Top from H&M, Pants from Von Zipper, Bag from Chanel, Shoes…?, and the belt used to be my moms.
After The Kelway hotel we went to eat at ‘the Coachman’. Enjoyed the view and spotted a few dolphins in the water. I had this amazing starter for lunch called ‘Avocado Ritz’, basically avo with prawns, lettuce and dressing. We all ate a bit too much but it was so nice!

Got ready this morning for a trip to Jeffreys Bay with Ryan. It didn’t really feel that cold so I wore a skirt and a t-shirt with boots and my lovely leather jacket. By the time we got there it started to rain a bit, and for some weird reason some of the shops decided it was a good idea to have their air con on making it colder (think freeze-box) inside than it was outside. After about 2 hours of shopping it started Raining. Heavy rain. Raining sideways with raindrops the size of marbles. Lovely, not so much. Luckily I bought a RVCA hoodie at the last place (the RVCA store) before we headed out into the rain and back into the car. So I just put it on like a second after it was paid for. RVCA by the way has the coolest stuff for guys – love them!
Didn’t really need the sunglasses…
Got most of the guys (Ryan & Robin’s) Indo trip shopping done which was great.
Three RVCA t-shirts. The grey one was actually for me but silly little me forgot to check the size before buying it haha. A medium is waaay too big, should have gotten a XS, so I gave it to Ryan.
Surf wax, sunscreen, ding repair kit (?) and a million (5) board socks.
RVCA shorts! Love them. For Ryan, not me. I got a pair of leather shorts love them even more.
Board short and rash vests (? correct me if I’m wrong – I’m not a surfer).
Two coffin bags so that they can pack 3 boards in each one.
Would have loved to stay and shop a bit longer but the weather just made it impossible. Most of the stuff there is really surf fashion and surf stuff but it’s not impossible find cute things anyway.

Wanted to share three awesome products for damaged hair that has seriously done miracles for my own hair.
The first one to the left is from nu-Hair Treatments and is called ‘Placenta with conditioning agents and biotin‘ . It is a alcohol fee leave in treatment. It seriously makes your hair feel thicker and fuller. You can get it at most of the CLICKS stores here in South Africa.
The second one is the one to the right in the photo, it is L’OREAL‘s KÉRASTASE Resistance Ciment Thermique Vita-ciment topseal. Another leave in treatment. It is a heat-activated reconstructing milk for damaged, brittle hair. Not only does it give your hair that lovely fresh salon smell but it actually makes your hair dry faster than normally with a hair dryer. I got it at Dash Hair Salon but know they sell them at most salons.
The third one is the one in the middle of the photo, Kair’s extra strength Silicone Serum for dry & damaged hair. This product gives your hair that wonderful shine of a silicone serum and it contains a sunscreen to protect your hair from UV-Rays, all for a VERY reasonable price. Got mine at SPAR but you get them in most shops.
Trying to get my hair back to how it was before I started going wild and color it almost 20 times in one year has been a mission. I’ve tried hot oils, serums, shampoos, conditioners, salon treatments, everything. But the only thing that help in the end was a haircut and these products. Now it’s just keeping it up and letting my hair grow longer again.
