I feel so bad for not writing here in what feels like ages! The last couple of weeks were crazy, but now that summer vacation is around the corner, I finally have some more time for doing (almost) whatever I want.
This past week has been so much fun!
I had my last exam for this school year on Tuesday, and as always for this subject, I overstudied. So hopefully it went great, or else I'm gonna be so upset.
Then on Wednesday my sister and I went to the stables and attended an extra horseriding lesson, since we'd missed some. She's way better than me at this, since she's done it for 6 years, but somehow we still ended up in a group that was even better than she is, so you can imagine how I felt struggling through the woods on the back of a horse I've never been on before.
On Thursday it was all about the dress rehearsal for Marika's show, and it didn't go too well. I forgot some things in our choreography, so I was a bit nervous.
On Friday we had another rehearsal at noon. The first show started at 3 PM and it went great! It was so much fun to stand on the stage, the lights shining, in front of around 500 people doing our thing. I had the honour to open our segment and it felt amazing. I could do this all the time!
I know text isn't so muvh fun to read, and since pictures say more than words, he're some photos from Friday's shows!
Some great dance performances and a funny face-selfie. Sorry for the horrible quality of my phone's camera!
Some great words to start your day with
Summer, I'm longing for you
Because the world looks better in black & white
Yep, this one's without any make-up.
The Met Ball 2014
Yesterday was the annual fashion event of the year and it did for sure not dissapoint! Even though the styles and themes of the night were a bit split, the red carpet was filled with gorgeous looking ladies and gentlemen. I just love all these kinds of events, when you get to see both TV-, movie- and music stars together attending the same event, with loads of beautiful dresses and amazing hair and make-up.

Chocolate chip/raspberry white chocolate chip cookies
Due to a request, this post is going to be about the cookies I baked for Easter. They're really simple to make, especially if you have a food processor, and they taste heavenly!
So check them out and don't think twice about making them, you won't regret it!
Also below you'll find some photos from when I made them.
Here's the recipe:
The amount of chocolate chips is definately not set, it depends on weather you like a lot of chips or more of the cookie.
For the raspberry white chocolate cookies I just switched the medium/dark chocolate with white and added some frozen raspberries.
Store the cookies in an airtight container, otherwise they loose their mush.
Hope you enjoy them and make sure to let me know if you ever atempt to make them, I'm so curious about your results!

Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture
If you've followed my blog for a while, you might know that this is my all time favourite designer when it comes to dresses and gowns. If I ever have the honour of attending a red carpet, this will be the designer I will turn to for help. It would be so incredible to walk down the carpet, with a gorgeous creations like these below on my body.
The dresses below are my favourites from this year's Elie Saab Spring Couture collection.
The ending piece of the show - bridal
The genius himself - Elie Saab
Today was a really nice day! I woke up, went to the gym quite early, got home and ate breakfast in the sun while watching "Game of Thrones" with my little cutie by my side. Could you ask for a better way to start the day? Then I went shopping before my modeling class and bought some nice stuff, which I'll show you later. Then I got home, relaxed, ate a super delicious dinner and now I'm soon off to bed. Great day, right?
Tomorrow though, is gonna be filled with studying, so I may not post anything here. But keep an eye on it, in case I will.
Hope you've all had a great day and really enjoyed the weather!
Breakfast in the fresh air

If I went to Coachella...
...it would be a real dream come true! Ever since my interest in celebrities and fashion started that one day in sixth grade, Coachella has been one of the major topics on my "To-do-before-I-die-list". It's everything you could ever want from a festival, gorgeous fashion, great music, warm weather and famous beautiful people.
Because the festival is the topic on everyone's mouth right now, I've put together a few outfits similar to what I would be wearing if I went to Coachella.
Which one is your favourite?
Today I have the literature exam, so I'm a bit early at school to study for it. I brought some coffee with me (since all those Espresso House bills are strating to pile up) and up until now I've watched an episode of Bones and studied for the test. Hopefully it will go smoothly, I feel quite good about it, but you can never be completely sure.
Yesterday was such a beautiful day, which you can see in the photo below. Stcokholm is actually such a beautiful city, which I've come to realize now that the sun's been out and the weather's been amazing. I also bought a Ben & Jerry Greek Style Strawberry Shortcake ice-cream (wow, what a long name!). It tasted exactly like their Strawberry Cheesecake, which is one of my favourites, but I was a bit dissapointed, since I expected something new. But it was so delicious, and it has a bit fewer calories, which is definately a plus!
Have a great day and good luck to all of you who also have tests/exams coming up!

Weekend + break summary
I haven't been on here in quite some time, and that's because I've been working Mon-Thur the past week, at the same time as turning in a huge essay (during Easter break, I know!), being with family and friends and getting ready for Easter. It's been a really nice break, I've felt like I've relaxed a lot, at the same time as getting things done. During the free time of my break I've met up with some friends from elementary school, working out 4/7 days, cleaning, baking, painting eggs and all the other things you do when getting ready for spring and Easter.
Also, my dear Agnes came by for a sleepover Sunday through Monday. We met up in the city to buy some ice-cream (my first of the year!), take pretty photos of the cherry blossoms in Kungsträdgården and just enjoy the sun. We also took a little walk along the harbor while eating our ice-creams. The weather was really warm and it was so beautiful outside. After a while we got back to my place and just did what we always do on our sleepovers, eat a lot of bad things like chips and candy and cookies and cupcakes and so on, watch movies and talk way past midnight. The next day unfortunately Agnes got to leave quite early, so we didn't really have time to do that much then. When she left my sister and I just chilled on the balcony, enjoying the warm sun and hoping to get at least a little bit of color (which of course didn't happen to me).
Anyways, I have this exam on literature tomorrow, so I'd better study a bit now. But I'll check in tomorrow with some other nice photos!

...and white chocolate and raspberry cookies (also some cupcakes which I'll show you some other time)

This is such a joyful day, not only for all the Christians (well, mainly), but also for the whole world! The sun is shining, the're amazingly smelling flowers in the air and the weather is clear and warm. I could not imagine a better day for celebrating Easter and the ressurection of Jesus.
Have a beautiful day filled with love, warmth and of course a lot of candy!

I just love Saturday's! Mainly it's because it's the one day that I've decided that I don't do any homework, unless it's absolutely critical. Also because Saturday's are such lovely days, since you can wake up at any time you'd like, go to the gym in the morning while it's still quite empty, just chill and watch series and of course, my modeling classes.
Saturday's for me mean being free and doing what I like, which is absolutely amazing!
Now I'm gonna head off to the modeling class, then I'll just chill a bit in a café somewhere until I go to Pressbyrån for another lesson, like the one yesterday.
Have a great Saturday you guys!
Yes, it's finally here. The most loved day of the week, Friday!
Friday's for me mean long mornings and long days. School ends at 4.20PM, whereafter I have to rush home, get dressed and go to the stable and my weekly horseriding lessons.
Today was a particurarly stressfull day, because I had to hurry incredibly much after my horseriding lesson, so that I could be at Pressbyrån in time. It all worked out very well, above my anticipation.
This week has been really nice, not that stressfull and really fun.
Also, a BIG Happy Birthday to my dear friend Annelie who's turning 18 today. Hurray!
Now you all have a great Friday evening and I'll see ya'll tomorrow!
A really cool picture in my opinion from today's PE class. It's me doing the bridge!
