Velvet and new Delhi

I threw away a lot of nailpolishes when leaving Japan, but with these two I feel like I can make it through autumn and winter!

Cleaning out

So, starting new in sweden, eh.
When I moved from Tokyo I threw away -alot- of things in order to be able to actually bring anything. The mood is still there it seems, so I'm going through my old stuff, trying to get rid of most.
If anyone's interested, check out my Tradera, I'll add stuff regulary, and it'll be everything ranging from vintage, rave, weird stuff, to japanese stuff, so. Well. yeah!

Cleaned out my wallet today too, realised there were no reason to carry around gazillions of point cards I can't use. And boy, there were alot! My wallet weighs nothing now!

Oh, and it's autumn up here.. I love it, but it's so very very cold. I kid you not, it's even cold inside the house! I dug out my mums lusecardigan despite the fact that I hate itchy clothing because it's the only thing that'll keep me somewhat warm.

Red Cross bargain

Went by the local Red Cross shop(in Sweden it's common that localities have a Second Hand shop where proceeds go to the Red Cross).

 Managed to snag some things up, 2 pair of shoes, a maxi dress and three scarves.
 The scarves were the best though, 3 for 10sek(approx 100yen). One with flowers, one with wagons and one paisely!

Country life

So, my fifth/fourth day back in Sweden. Everything is going suprisingly well! My bag finally came yesterday, so now I can dress, haha.
I'm pleased that I'm not torn apart inside over leaving Japan, since I thought I'd be completly depressed, haha. But I think I left at a good time. Two years is a long time, and the last 6 months I didn't do anything. I want to live in Japan, but I want to do something, school, work, anything, and right now there's nothing there I can do. I'll soon be back there, anyway!

Things are rolling on good here, thankfully! I'm gonna join the local gym, the last two years haven't been nice to my body, but hopefully with some exercise and home cooked meals I'll be healthy and fine in no time! And next week I'm going to start taking driving lessons!
Gonna sign up for adult school this week too! 

So, what do you do in a village? Let there be pictures!
(Yeah, I abuse instagram lately, it's one of the few sources of entertainment I have)

My mother is unknowingly really trendy with her interior, I noticed!
Went to Systembolaget for the first time! You have to be 20 in Sweden to buy hard liquour. I got candy!
The view. Quite different from the view I had in Tokyo.
Raided my grandmothers attic, 7 wool berets and a nifty suitcase!
Kuro, the kittens mother. She rules with an iron fist!

Life Lesson: Moving

Moving from one side of a continent to another is a pain in the butt when you wait until the last day, and your mother isn't there to be all awesome and smart and help you.

My flight leaves in 22 hours, the apartment is a mess and it's like the laws of physics doesn't apply anymore.

Someone pleaase invent the shrink ray!

I'm a hoarder by heritage, so the fact that I am actually throwing away things makes generations of my family scream in anguish from the other side, haha.

I''ll probably be back again around the weekend. Till then!

Ueno Zoo

So, last friday Martin & Malins school were going to Ueno Zoo! I decided to come along, to finally see the pandas!

I love zoos, but it's so depressing. People often talk about japanese pet shops, and that they live in small cubicles.. Well, those pets atleast get a new home rather quick, the animals in the zoos live there their whole lifes, running around in circles.

Nevertheless, animals are exciting, and apart from that my heart stung a couple of times, it was great fun!

 Pic spam!

"Do Not Feed" sign, but cute!
Shaved Ice!
The tag says "There's babies in my tummy".

Shirokuma madness

Just went out and bought a bucket load of one of my favorite beauty products! Shirokuma eye plasters! But the majority isn't for me. My mom told her friend about these and how much I raved about them, and asked me to buy her a bunch!

I'll do a review about them, or well, post before and after pictures! I haven't used them for a few weeks to let my dark circles come back in order to properly show the effect..

 Went with Ylva and Martin for some good ol' cake binge eating today at Sweets Paradise!

Cake! I especially liked the Mont Blances(the bottom two).

Shopping therapy

Came up with the wonderful idea to show away the feelings about leaving Japan!
Or, well, to shop for autumn. If I'd stay stay in Japan I wouldn't be able to wear anything autumny until perhaps October, but now, I'll be able to wear it in two weeks!

Went by g.u (oh how I will miss thee lowcost shoppingparadise!!), and bought two pieces that I've already planned for. These will go completly unused until the day of arrival. They'll both be in my carry on luggage, ready to be taken out and worn as soon as I hit Swedish ground.
They might not look like much, but they're both made in "cashemere touch"(closest to the real deal I'll get!), so it'll be comforting to have something warm and snuggly, I believe!

The cardigan is rather big/long, so I'll throw in a thin belt and voila, ready!

As usual I amaze my surroundings by having death fights with vacuum bags to be able to fit my stuff into boxes to ship off, while at the same time buying more things with the mantra "I'll bring these in my bag, I need these for fall/winter!".
