London feelings

My expectations of London before I moved here was that it would be like a mini New York, but that was NOT the case. London and New York City are very different and it kind of bummed me out at the start when I first arrived to London, since I still had so much of my American experience in my back pocket. But as the time went, I grew to love London and realised more every day that it’s so many things to see and explore here all the time. It might not be the city that never sleeps but it IS a city that never stops changing. And to me that’s a very exciting thought to wake up to every day. 



Stockholm, Sweden

This weekend, Eddie and I went back home to meet my family. I can tell you it was great!
The weather was amazing, the language barrier wasn't to bad and they all liked each other. Score! 
We just chilled and had a nice time, exploring Stockholm and showing Eddie around whilst enjoying being all back together again. It's been 6 months since the last time that happend.....


It was only for a short weekend but hopefully I'll be back by the end of the summer for a longer time and hopefully my mom can come visit London some this summer. How lovely wouldn't that be?

Also on our way back to London I found Bath and Bodyworks at the airport, I went crazy happy! 

Zara Larsson is my Spirit Animal

If you're in anyway familiar with the Swedsih music industry, you might have noticed everything that's going on in regards of the Swedish artist Zara Larsson. 

Zara is an active feminist and is famous for speaking her mind and not backing down, which has led to that, especially men, feel like they have the right to hate on her. 
Below is some comments made about her just because she pointed out the obvious sexism in the music industry, just because she spoke up about the injustice in the marketing campaign for the Swedish festival Bravalla. 

These comments translates:
Maybe she wouldn't be hated if she didn't hate on everything and everyone. 

If she just would stop seeking so much damn attention through making eveyone upset, maybe she could avoid all the hate. 

If she is allowed to hate on us men, we should be allowed to hate on her just as much and write what we think about her just as she does about us. 


They're basically saying that she takes too much space, that she should back down and not talk about the sexism. It's awful and I'm just so thankful Zara Larsson is out there, still going strong and putting them in their place saying: I don't hate men, I hate men in groups that push down women.

Internet hate and sexism is a real thing and is something that has to be taken seriously. This is the world we grow up in now a days and just because the bullying is done online doesn't mean that it should be OK. 

This makes me so angry and I hope Zara keeps paving the way for feminism everywhere and continues to spread awareness about internet hate and bullying. 

Her blogpost, tho in Swedish, where she confronts all the speculations head on is just awesome:
