Take a look at these lovely tulips! From yesterday's adventurous trip to Linköping with my dear friend Annelie. Haha! Honestly, I like that city so much more now. :) I'll show you later what got to come home with me... spring pearls... :)
It's been such a long time since I cooked a proper meal at home! The reason for this is that I eat at work, which is convenient, yes, but boring. I miss cooking for husband and me. Anyways, usually (though not for a while now) the weekends are my cooking days. :) Yesterday (Mondays off, remember?) this is what we had for dinner:
Normally, I don't like cottage cheese. But recently, recipes with cottage cheese as a key ingredient have popped up in so many places. Needless to say, I have become very curious, and so cottage cheese blinis and cottage cheese waffles have now made their way onto my to-try list. Obviously, recipes and pictures will appear here on the blog. Maybe tomorrow would be a good day for the waffles, tomorrow being "Waffle Day" in Sweden. :)
Edit: I see now (day after in daylight) that the colour reproduction totally sucks in the picture above... I'll see to that when I get home tonight. If there's enough light that is. The colour is a lot more amazing than this picture conveys.
Edit 2: Here's the best I could come up with... I dunno. No more pink nails for a while, promise! :)
Got this hot tip for a fabulous nail polish, Revlon #917, Plum Seduction. Haven't tried it but just looking at the left pictures makes me love it!

And, I found another pretty gorgeous shade which is probably as close as it gets, being another brand. Mine is Depend #69 (I know, the last nail polish I wore was also Depend #69... but grey? I don't know, it kind of beats me so don't ask...). Anyways, later tonight I'll probably do all of my nails and then they'll be up on the blog shortly. (Ya, I know, I only did the one for this post!).
This afternoon, after a great Sunday dinner with family, we gathered in front of the tv to watch a movie. The decision fell on Tears of the Sun with Bruce Willis. It was just so good. And so terrible. It really makes you think. I liked it a lot. And a good Bruce Willis movie is always right. :)
On my shopping spree today I got three new nail polishes from Depend. I love how the bottles are small - it actually gives me a chance to use it up. :) The colour I chose to wear today is a grey, #69. I like it and it reminds me of this. I'll show the other colours as we go! :)
Here are four gift wrapping papers that I bought from Swedish shop Lagerhaus today, in preparation for a combined birthday and graduation party. I'll post the result of my gift wrapping later tonight or tomorrow.
This bowl came home with me from Salvation Army's thrift store today. I got off early from work and figured I'd stop by as I generally find something there to cheer me up (when getting off work early on a Friday doesn't quite cut it... rough day at work...) 5SEK/$1...! :)
Ha! And it is not because it's a new week and a new day at work but because I have Mondays OFF! :) So, I made myself a smoothie for breakfast on this lovely day off :) Turkish yoghurt+blood orange+blueberry. Yum! :) I'll post the piece-of-cake recipe in a while.
Don't these mascaras look just lovely? :) So bright and shiny - summer! I would love to try out the six of them that I haven't yet tried. I have used the yellow and the purple ones in the past. The yellow one is really good, but not great. And the purple one is just really good. My next one will be... the false lash effect from Max Factor. I think :) Or maybe...
Pictures are from respective brand website in collage by me. Click to enlarge.
Mascaras are (from left to right) :
Lumene Blueberry Volume Mascara / Max Factor Masterpiece Mascara / Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara / Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express Mascara / Maybelline Great Lash BIG Mascara / L'Oréal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara / YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils / Maybelline Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Mascara
I can't believe they still make tubes in boring black?? When there's so many gorgeous colours to choose from. Unbelievable. :)
I had no idea black nail polish could cause spring feelings. :) Well... maybe it's just nail polish in general that does that. Spring feelings none the less. I know it's anything but flawless - I applied it just a few minutes before putting on my jacket and heading out. But anyways, right? :) Oh, and no spring feelings outside whatsoever.
