update from the cold

Fashion,Outfit,17 January 2018

Sitting at the airport with a green smoothie bowl and fluffy cappuccino in front of me while I’m trying to work, but there’s something wrong with my eyes. Must be something in my contacts that makes my vision super blurry. I can’t come up with anything more annoying than traveling with only one set of contacts which are faulty. Super frustrating! I mean either I’m blind or then I feel like I have sand in my eyes. Difficult to choose. Although, our last trip was quite uncomfortable as well since we managed to catch the stomach flu. No wonder I don’t feel tempted to travel so much. Home is definitely best for old, bitter ladies like me ;D.

Speaking of eyes and vision I want to ask you something. Since you are the best ones to turn to when in doubt, I’m wondering if any of you have been through lasik eye surgery? I’ve been considering it for some time now, but it hasn’t been an option for me during pregnancies and breast feeding. I’m either pregnant or breast feeding right now, so this would be the perfect time to proceed with the process, but I guess I’m procrastinating it because I find it a bit scary. My eyes are super sensitive and dry as it is. I’m afraid lasik surgery will make them even more dry and uncomfortable and what if something goes wrong? I would love to hear your honest thoughts and experiences if you’ve done it.

More importantly, I need to praise this weather! It’s cold yes, but the sun has been shining and I’m feeling good wrapped up like a burrito in all my warmest winter coats, beanies and scarves! I’m a super warm person, therefore I rarely wear super chunky coats and knits unless it’s super cold. And, now it is. Let’s celebrate that!

Have a nice day sweethearts!

Yesterday I managed to do a quick photo shoot with Mona. We have been planning to shoot for a while now, but you know how time just passes without anyone noticing? I’m happy we finally found the time, because we had fun and it’s always good to try new things.

This week I’m traveling back to Stockholm to shoot a fun campaign. I’m leaving on Wednesday and hoping to have time to walk around and enjoy the evening before it’s time to get to work. I even convinced one of my best friends from Gothenburg to come see me, so now we have a dinner booked at Farang. Can’t wait! Have you tried it?

Before I leave I have to dedicate lots of time to school, accounting and collaborations. New courses start next week at school and I decided to make a study plan for myself for this spring and next year. Planning gives me comfort; therefore, I should make more mind maps and plans when it comes to everything. However, I have to say I loved having this break over the holidays. Always makes me miss structure, but gives me the freedom to do other things I desire, like jumping on the metro and travel nowhere.
