Got Any Plans For New Years?

Hi hi my dear readers! Have you had a good weekend? I have. I mean it's been okay. I haven't done much except for going to Starbucks three days in a row. LOL. Fanny and I have become regulars there now. Hahaha. But it is my fave place for cheap coffee (you gotta know how to order right!), free wifi and hot guys.

So what is everyone doing for New Years? I am not doing anything. Just going to be with my family. I feel like it's the same fucking thing every year. I say to myself that I want to do something fun, be with friends or whatever. Then idk what happened but I end up staying at home with my family. I feel like  am getting to old for this shit and it's not fun anymore. But okay it's not like we are doing just nothing on New Years. We are going to celebrate Christmas since we all couldn't be together on actual Christmas Eve. So I mean yeah, at least I'll be getting something out of it. Hahaha (no I am not that superficial). It'll be fun and now I hav…

The Eternal Struggle of My Life

Friday! Idk weird buy kind of have no idea what day it is these days. I know that it is Friday but idk it somehow feels like it could be any day of the week. Idk but it is weird weird. Hahahaha.

Anyhow how is everyone these days? Have you checked out the sale yet? I did today. Sadly I didn't find anything. Well, I was looking for something particular to maybe wear on New Years but idk I didn't find it. Sad sad but I am going to look through my closet when I am done with this post to see if I have anything that I can work with and maybe just add some accessorize to it. Idk. I have some dresses in my closet. I feel like this is a problem because idk what to wear for New years but I am just going to be with my family so there is no need to sex it up to anything but I still want to look cute. Aaaah, the eternal struggle of my life.

It's Christmas!

Oh, I feel like it's time for a new on this blog. Sorray for updating so poorly the last couple of weeks! I just have been very busy with getting Christmas ready and work and all of the stuff ya know but i am here now. All to your service! Hahahaha. Nah, but at least I am here. What's weighing down your heavy hearts?

Have you had a nice Christmas? I hope that you have! Mine has been alright. It was just me, my mom and the dogs. I woke up with the weirdest voice yesterday - I couldn't barely speak because I had so much phlegm in my throat (I think that I might be getting a cold or something). It (my voice) was just on and off all day. Otherwise the day was good. We were home all day. Ate some good food, watched movies, The VS Fashion Show, opened presents and all of the Christmas stuff. Hehehehe.

I think that I might try my luck at the sale this weekend. Or at least see what they have. There is a few things that I have had my eyes on for a couple of weeks now. So I hope tha…

XMAS STRESSED OUT

Hi guys! OMG I am so sorry for not posting anything this weekend but I have been a little busy plus kind of tired. Plus now I am kind of stressed because I realized yesterday that I am working until the day before Christmas. The day before! That is cray cray. I mean it's not crazy, it's absolutely normal. But it is just that I thought that Christmas was on Thursday and not Wednesday. So I thought that I had a day in-between to get things ready and to shop the last presents. Gasssh! How will I ever get anything done on time!? I haven't even finished decorating yet (WTF is wrong with me! I EFFING LOVE CHRISTMAS!) and I have two presents left to buy. You could say that I am a teeny tiny bit stressed. But I'll manage (I'll have too).

I have discovered this new show on viaplay called Marry Me. It's some new American sitcom starring Casey Wilson and Ken Marino. The show is really fun. The story is about this couple (Wilson and Marino) who have been dating for six yea…

Not Feeling It

Hi hi! How are you all doing? Sorry for not updating the last two days. I just didn't have anything "good" to write and last night I was busy because I went to a Christmas buffet with my mom. We went to O'Leary's in Kista. I guess that it was kind of fun. I mean yes it was fun but like when you think of O'Leary's you usually don't think of them having a Christmas buffet. But the food was really good. Almost too good I have to say because I at so much food that I felt that I was going to burst. OMG but it was so worth it! Hahahaha! Yum, yum!

Guys seriously! It's freaking Christmas next week! Whaaat?! That is freakin cray cray! It's cray cray because I have no Christmas spirit at all. Nope, none nothing nada. Urgh! OI love Christmas though! It really is my fave time of the year. Christmas and my birthday. But I wasn't even feeling it for my birthday this year. Well well, I am sure that I'll have a great time.

Teenage Dream (Accoustic Version) - Glee

Madeon

Image
Hello my little darlings! How are you today? I am good. I had a little part as an extra in commercial that is just going to be shown on the web. I don't know when it comes out though. Pretty soon I think because that's what they said. Anyway, I had a fun. I got Fanny on a corner.

Anyway's we were extras in a music video shoot a few weeks ago. It was for this new edm artist, Madeon. Idk if I should say new because this kid is bad ass and has worked with some pretty big heavy weights, such as Lady Gaga, Ellie Goulding, Coldplay, Muse & Zedd. That is pretty fucking awesome for just 20 years old!

His real name is Hugo, which o was like super confused when he introduced himself to me and this other girl who was standing near his DJ booth. I was like (in my own head) "Isn't his name Madeaon?", then it hit me that it is probably just a stage name. LOL. OMG, he was like the sweetest guy. We chatted a little bit before that started shooting. He was eating sushi, a…

It's All About Who You Know

Oh hi guys! Last day of the week or first day of the week depending on how you read the calendar in whatever part of the world you are in. It's the last day for me. You know in Sweden our calendar is from Monday - Sunday. Monday being the first day of the week and Sunday the last. Yeah yeah. How has your weekend been? Mine has been pretty good. I have mostly been working, expect for today. A friend came over, which kind of forced me to fold the laundry so that the couch would be free to use as, you know a couch.

Next week I have more TV shootings. That's gonna be fun. I am looking forward to Tuesday. Okay, I don't really know what I am going to do that day, but I have some info on what we are doing. Plus they seemed to really want me for that part since the guy kept on calling AND texting me for a few hours because I didn't answer (I wasn't being "dryg" I was just busy with an other TV show). Exciting. I am going to see if I get my friend in. This busines…

Just Like In The Movies

So I felt like a girl in one of those American movies today. Like I am wannabe actress and today I worked at this private event party. I looked just like something out of a movie, black pants and a white shirt (which is not white anymore so I will have to bleach it just to be on the safe side). Funny thing when speaking about the "out of a movie" one of the authors of the Swedish book Cirkeln attended the party and she came up to me and told me that she recognized me. When she said that I thought she looked familiar too. Then she told me that she recognized me from the set of Alena because she (and Mats - who she cowrote Cirkeln with) came to visit the set of Alena one time. It was really cool to see her and that she recognized me. It was random but funny and cool. LOL, I am getting recognized from a movie that is not even released yet. Hahahaha. OH, btw check out Alena's imdb page - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3792884/!

I really feel like I need to read Cirkeln and Alen…

Taylor Swift - Blank Space

Dopelicious

OMG Sweden why do have to be so cold! Gosh! I feel like I have a topic tonight. Something that has become a common theme in my life lately but I don't want to blog about it because. Just because.

So how is everyone else tonight? I am actually really good. I booked two things for next week within like the span of five minutes so that is pretty bad ass. Plus like they seemed to really want me for one of the things since the guy kept calling me. But I couldn't answer because I was busy and then my phone died because I had no batteries left. When I turned on my phone again I got like a million texts from different people and several missed calls. So I called everyone back and I booked two things. Well three kind of. So all in all, I guess it's been a good day.

Old School Modern

Hi guys! How are you? I am sorry that I have been absent for the past couple of days but I just haven't had the energy to blog or do anything. I just haven't been feeling my best but I am all better now! Yeah!

I wrapped some Christmas gifts today. I feel like that is half the fun with the Christmas gift giving. LOL. Just making them all pretty and cute. This year though, I am going kind of retro or whatever you would like to call with the gift wrapping. Old school? Idk, you decided. (Old school modern?)

Monday

Image
Shooooo! Hahahaha lol. What is everyone up to at this hour? Me, I am just sitting here watching TV. Oooo I just bought my first Christmas gifts. Yeah! One of the gifts is the present of the year. Like I want this one for myself. So if this person doesn't think this is a cool thing I'm like sorry but we're no longer friends! Hahahaha. Maybe not that harsh but I am going to take it back for myself. LOL.

I went to a museum with Fanny today. It was quite, idk, it was a bunch of painting. Some of them were really beautiful. But like there was this one section with that had a lot of paintings with a lot of faces and I find that a little scary. Like I can't have a painting at home with a face just staring at me. It's freaking creepy! No please! There was this painting of some waves and it was really good. It was like you could actually see the waves crashing and turning or whatever. There was a lot of life in that still picture. It was really cool!

I got called at the mus…

Coming Out

SUPER 7

Hi guys! How are you all this Sunday evening? LOL it's almost midnight here, so I am going to try to finish this fast so that I can go to bed before midnight. Seriously, I have a problem! Need to STOP staying up this late! Gosh. I mean I am 21. I don't know what that means. Yes I am 21, which just kind of stating facts here but Idk what I meant with that "I am 21". Whatever.

OMG! So I just finished watching Super 8. Damn, a lot of freaky things happening in that movie. (Sorry if I am spoiling here for y'all who haven't seen the movie but want to. But seriously though, the movie came out in 2011 so you have had your time to see it!) I do recommend it to all of you who are thinking about seeing it. You will not regret it! It is an action packed thriller that will keep you on the edge of your sofa for 112 minutes (1 h 52 min). There are a few WTF moments! Like in the beginning I was like "WTF is this movie?!" But like in a good way. So you should reall…

Saturday Night

Hi guys! I feel a little obligated to make post now since I didn't write anything yesterday and i have to head out in a little while. So 1D was here last night. Idk, just feel like that need a little recognition since you know that I am a major Directioner. Oh and by here, I don't mean here as in my house (unfortunately). I mean here as in Stockholm and Sweden. Well, one day maybe I'll get to party with them. It kind of feels like a lot of people went to see the Idol finale just to see 1D, that why it should out. Sorry not sorry, but having 1D preform during the finale kind of saved them (Idol). I seriously do not think that they would have had sold as many tickets if One Direction weren't there.

So what are you all doing tonight? I am going to go and see Horrible Bosses 2 with a friend. I love the first one. LOL Motherfucker Jones!

Pirates + Christmas = ?

Okay so the Christmas Advent calendar this… like the only word that I have for it is WTAF!? I mean pirates and Christmas - how do they go together? What is the connection between the two? I am not saying that it is bad, I am just saying huh? I mean because I still watch it. I might have outgrown the chocolate calendar but the Christmas Advent calendar on TV, please that will always remain a tradition. I may not be as excited about it as I was when I was younger but I still like to watch it.

Some Grown Up As Shit

Hola muchachos! I feel like I am growing up or some shit. Idk. But I guess it was time and that everything has to come to an end, but who knows - maybe next year? Okay so after 21 years I decided that I don't want a chocolate Advent calendar. I just don't feel like eating candy every single day, even if it is just a small piece of chocolate. Plus I wanted a One Direction Advent calendar but I can't find one so if will just have to be.

I feel like, I mean like I am amazingly proud of myself because like I have done things lately that I like a month ago never ever would have had the guts to to. I am proud of myself. But I am goring as a person and that is pretty fucking cool. LOL. Y'all have no idea what I am talking and you'll never know either.

Goodnight

Waddup people! How are you all? I am good, thank you. WTF, it's past 11 PM and I am still up. LOL. Okay that is quite common when it comes to my life, but I am just like. I mean like around 11 PM last night I was like "I am done with this shit!" and I went to bed. Like, me? Bed? 11 PM? That's three things that don't occurs simultaneously that often. Well well, there is always a time to try new things.

Talking about bed times… I remember like when I lived in SB or even just throwing it back to last summer when I went to bed at like 12 AM, at latest. 'Cause anything later than that was like devil time to dance (whatever that means). No, but I just thought that anything after 12 AM was freakishly late to be up and awake at, and like for some reason it gave me anxiety if I went to bed later than that. Well, well. Now I can stay up until like 1 AM. Anything between 12 AM and 1 AM is pretty normal for me. Well, I did stay up until like 4 in the morning for 1D Day l…

GET A FUCKING GRIP GURL

Hi guys! How are you all today? I am good. I had a little trouble sleeping last night which was not helpful at all since I had to be up at 6:30 AM this morning because I had a shoot. So it was it like a really big pain getting out of bed this morning. But tomorrow I am care free. Well, there are things on my "these are the things you should have had done like two months ago ERIKA GET A FUCKING GRIP GURL" - list. No, I don't have such a list but there things that I should have had done two months ago. I have had a notification on my notifications app for, idk but since August anyway. BUT, I crossed that off last week. BIG GIRL! Hahahahaha!

Friday Night With Taylor & Chris

Hi guys! How are you all? I am good. I am just sitting here and watching Captain America: The Winter Soilder. You know movie night. It was going to be just me and the latest issue of Cosmopolitan UK but then I saw CATWS on the bookshelf and I was like "Hey gurl you need a little more Chris Evans in your life!" But I am afraid that I will become the third wheel to Taylor and Chris. 'Cause those two - girl next door and the the guy next door, bound to happen at some point. Or maybe not but those two would make a handsome couple! Just saying.

Ey…. now that I think about it there is an interview with Chris in the Cosmo issue. Date Night With Chris. I think that is was called that. He like describes his ideal date, but I wonder if it is serious or not.  Or idk. I guess it's kind of cute. But any date with Chris would be awesome, because you know, Chris. LOL.

Happy Fakesgiving

Image
Oh, hi! Happy Thanksgiving y'all! Or Happy Fakesgiving (I've already explained that to you). So how are you all? I am good. Best meal ever! OMG so delicious! My mom and I had Fakesgiving lunch. Our menu consisted of potatoes, a chicken, cranberry sauce, stuffing and some salad. Oh, you can not forget about my amazing pumpkin pie! OMG! Everything was so good. But I gotta say, that the stuffing was my favorite. Delic! I could eat stuffing for the rest of my life. Maybe not but it was streaking tasty!



I think that my pie turned out awesome! Like it does not just look awesome it actually tastes good. Like I did one for Christmas last year and it just tasted a bit weird. I think it was because I used lactose free heavy cream. So um yeah. And the spices. I didn't have pumpkin spice so I just used some other spices but not the correct amount. Anyway it turned out good.



Look at the pie in the cookbook and look at mine… pretty impressive right!?
LOL. Since it was just my mom and I,…

Fakegiving Prep

Hello boys and girls! How are you this fine evening? I am okay I guess. Just frustrated over typical me stuff, but otherwise I am super because tomorrows Thanksgiving. Or Fakegiving as I am calling it. Hahaha. You know because Thansgiving is not a Swedish holiday. So today I have been preparing a little bit for tomorrow. LOL, it's just gonna be my mom and I since she is the only one that I can force to have Fakegiving with me. I made a pumpkin pie and I bought cranberry sauce today. I'll post pictures of everything tomorrow.

Being 21

Hahaha. It's a joke to say that I've got it figured out on what it is like to be in you're 20's! I am only 21 so it is not really like I have to have it all figured out yet. Plus every person is different so I shouldn't really be too terrified about not knowing everything cosmo is talking about when it comes to being a 20 something woman. Gosh! Life can be pretty damn complicated frustrating.

I feel like right now I am in that kind of in a "going to concert, listening to music and dancing around the living room and just like taking a lot of selfies and quizzes on BuzzFeed" mood/ state. The going to concert is my biggest load, so a super thanks to my mom who gave me money for Ariana Grande. Like she just offered. Awesome right?! But where is that attitude when it comes to JB and One Direction? Huh? Or maybe just 1D since they're the ones that go on a tour every year. But JB was here last year. Hahahaha.

I guess that you could say that selfies are a loa…

Something That We Won't Discuss

Hola mis amigos! Yesterday feels like ages ago. Last week feels like ages ago. Hmmm. Yeah, yeah.

I feel like I know what tonight's topic should be, I know what tonight's topic is but not here on Erika's World. We're all to sophisticated to indulge in that sort of thing. We're ladies and gentlemen. We hold out heads up high and behave according to social standards. Idk, but I am having a fun discussion with some people in SWD about boundaries. But I have boundaries because I am a lady. Hahaha.

Cody Simpson - Waves (Acoustic Remake)

Fakegiving

Hi guys! I think that it might be time for an other post. An other day, an other post. Or a new day, a new post. depending on how you look at it because they're both correct. Whatever. Have you guys had a good weekend? I have, I guess - I haven't really done much. LOL. Just a usual weekend in Erika's world.

I want to do kind of like a Fakegiving thing. A kind of a fake Thanksgiving. You know because Thanksgiving isn't a Swedish tradition. Though there is a Tacksägelsedagen (Thanksgiving Day) in the calendar but that day has already past and it is the same day as the Canadian Thanksgiving. So since I kind of didn't know about that I will do something on Thursday, and do Black Friday on Friday. I can actually do Black Friday, because Apple have sales all over the world (OMG I am thinking iPhone 6!) and actually Stockholm Quality Outlet will have a Black Friday sale in all of there stores. LOL, so if I spend all of my money there, I can just walk over to IKEA and have…

Steal Her Style: Ari Edition

Image
Hi guys! How is everyone tonight? LOL, I am kind feeling like that his my standard opening phrase or something with y'all. LOL. Anyway, are you good? Are you gonna do anything fun tonight? Are you gonna go out? Me, yeah I just rented About Last Night from SF Anytime. I have been wanting to see that movie ever since it came out. So, um yeah that is how my night is going to be. Yup.

So I am kind of starting to think about what I want to wear for the Ariana Grande. Yeah, I know that it is six months left (don't judge me, once a fangirl always a fangirl). I kind want to copy her outfit from when she did that performance in Tokyo a few months ago. Or the one when she had at the airport, also in Tokyo. From the same trip actually. One of the two. They're both very cute. I want something Ariana-Grande-ish. I mean it's an Ari Grande concert. But Katy Perry is coming here in March so I have a chance there to dress a little crazy and cute or cute and crazy then. (Hahahahahaha.)

LBD Friday Inspiration

Image
Hi guys! Good afternoon Europe and Good morning USA! How is everyone today! It's Friday, are you guys excited? Do have any special plans for tonight or for the weekend? My plans for tonight is basically me and Merlin cuddling up in my bed, watching a good movie and eating some good snacks. Hahahaha. No my mom is the crazy dog lady in this house! Hahaha.

OMG, I have to tell you! Okay so usually I don't like having Merlin (or Kickan for that matter) in my med because they bring dirt. Like I don't want mud stains, grave and grit and shit. So I always tell him no if I notice him trying to jump up in my bed in the middle of the night. But tonight I woke up and he was just laying there next to me! That has happened before! I mean the I wake up and there he is next to me. Of course I don't push him down then but like how do I not notice when he jumps up on my bed and lays next to me? How? Idk. Good things he's cute though! And that I love him. That has saved him many time…

#TBT 2 Graduation

Image
Hi everyone! How are you all? I am good. Still in a good mood. I just thought that I would do a quick post before I head out again. LOL. I wanted to do a throwback post today. But I was like "What can I throwback to?" That I haven't already mentioned like one million times. Idk.

Oh, I just thought of a throwback. My high school graduation! I don't think that I have mentioned that so much. I actually think that I haven't talked about it except for when it actually happened. And that was over two years ago! Idk, maybe I have. Don't feel like looking that up, so I am just going to share some pictures from my high school graduation. Enjoy!

All Good Things Come in Four

Hi guys! I don't what to talk to you guys about first because there are a few things that I could bring up. Idk but like this whole week I have been in such a goos mood. "This whole week" - yeah yeah I know that it is only Wednesday but idk, there are a few things that have made me few particularly good. Just put me in a good mood. Life is good right now. Just like really good. Hahahaha.

So whose got FOUR? I do! Y'all already know that! Duh! I am a Directioner, of course I am not going to to miss out on an album release like that! It's freaking One Direction! Okay, that is enough of exclamation marks. I love the album! (Okay, sorry that is the last one.) It is amazing. I was really worried though before I listened to it because I read a few comments about the album in SWD. Idk, they could have had been kidding though. As I said, idk but someone said they the album was and that they were disappointed with the album. That got me sacred! (Sorry, can't stay away!…

A Little Change

Image
Hi guys! As you may have noticed I have changed the appearance of my blog quite a bit. I have wanted to change it for a while now and I have wanted to go back to a classical view. And now I have! What do you guys think of this new look? I love it. I got this rush inspiration when I read a blog by a girl from Swedish Beliebers. Check out her blog here (btw it's all in Swedish but she has really cool pictures, and the look is awesome!). Anyway, so now I have a new look here on Erika's World! Yeah!

Here's a before and after incase you have forgotten what it looked like before I changed it or just in case you're new here.

Before

After


Plus now that I am thinking about it. This look is kind of current. Very clean, very white and very winter. Aka the white. LOL. Idk.

Are any of you excited about winter/ the holidays? I am more excited about the holidays than winter. I mean, I am not excited about the snow. Oh no, now snow here! I mean, yes - now on Christmas Eve, day and box…

NLY ICONS

Image
I was looking through Nelly.com and I found some new faves. LOL. No but Lily Aldridge has a new collection for them so I checked it out and found a few cute things that I want. Kind of a complete outfit. The perfect LBD (that is not a dress, LOL even though it looks like it - it's a top and a dress) and the perfect shoes to go with it. Plus a cute little hair accessorie to go with it. And this super sexy black lace bra!

I need to do some shopping - good thing that I don't have a shopping addiction because then all of my money would be gone and I need those for concert tickets. Hmm, I guess that you can say that I have a kind of slight concert addiction. I am a fangirl so of course I have!

Anyway - here are my picks from the Lily Aldridge NLY ICONS collection (plus the bra which is from pieces).

Those Selfies I Promiesed

Image
Hi guys! Today is the last day of 2014 Stockholm International Film Festival. Nooo! I have had so much fun working at the festival. There have been a few crazy moments but I managed to get through them all. Some myself and the help of my volunteers and some by the help of me bosses. This weekend I got help from a few lifesavers - as I like to call them. Hahaha. No but truly they help me a lot. Showed up from nowhere like an angel sent from heaven above. LOL. You know who you are (and I bet like one billion dollars that they will never read this in their life time, but I thought that they needed a mention for their kindness - especially one person.)

Oh, yeah some Alena selfies. Hmmm. I just gonna check and see what I have in my photo stream, because my phone is not hooked up to the computer at the moment. I don't feel like hazzleing and doing that. So whatever my photo stream has you'll get. Mwah!

Meaningless Nonsense

Hi guys! How are you today? I am good. Good so far. LOL. I am working very late tonight, to 1 AM.  Yikes. LOL. I'll probably sleep all day tomorrow. Last night (or early this morning depending on how you see it) I worked until 12:30 AM. Yeah. I am excited to see Wild tonight. I mean I hope that I can see it. Unless there is like one billion things to do.

I don't know what to write here. Oh, I just thought that tomorrow I might show you a few pictures from the set of Alena. Mostly selfies, but there was the scene the other day and they had these really cool light so the pictures came out amazing! Aaah. You don't even need a filter when you post them on instagram. So I might just show you guys that tomorrow.

Have a great Saturday!

Not As Bad As It Sounds

Hi guys! How are you? I am good. I am working tonight at Skandia for Stockholm Film Festival. That is gong to be exciting because tonight is the premiere of Benedict Cumberbatch new movie The Imitation Game. I am kind of excited about that. Hopefully I can catch a peek of that. I am working after all so that is the priority. Hopefully the movie will be well received! The trailer seems really good. I am also working tomorrow night. Then it is the premiere of Reese Witherspoon. It's gonna be a fun weekend!

I mean yeah I am working a lot (and very late) but it is not a s bad as it sounds. It's kind of fun. Skandia is more fun that Reflexen because a lot more happened there. Plus I am not alone. Okay, I wasn't alone when I worked at Reflexen because Fanny came and helped me. (Thank you girl!)

Talk to some more tomorrow!

Girl Problems

Hi guys! How are you all today? I am good. Tomorrow I get to be an extra again in a scene in Alena The Movie. That is going to be so much fun! I am looking forward to seeing everyone. LOL. I just have one little problem, I just don't know what to wear or how to do my makeup. Gaaaah! Yeah, I got an email with a description of everything. Still, gaaaash. Eh, I'll figure something out. I'll have a closet full of clothes. Two if we're gonna state facts.

My Week

Hi guys! How are you? I am good. Okay at least. Just been a little tired today. So sorry if I haven't been very responsive, just string to recover from last week (working seven days straight). I don't mind though, it's always nice having something to do. This week I am not so booked though. So a little more chill, or not because I work like 11 hours so on Thursday. I don't remember. Maybe it was not. Idk, but it's a long day anyway.

What is everyone else doing this week? I already told you that I am working some, which I am looking forward too. It's gonna be exciting. On Friday, I am working for the Film Festival again. Back at Skandia (hallelujah) and it's the premiere of the new Benedict Cumberbatch movie, The Imitation Game. Which happens to be sold out, so hopefully I can sneak a little peek. There is a little window into the theater at Skandia, so I can stand there watch the movie. But what else are you going to to do. I want to see it. Or, maybe I can…

Reflex

Hi guys! I gotta say, yesterday was boring. Working at Reflexen was boring. I can't wait to get back to Skandia on Friday. LOL. I mean it's boring because it's just me and then the ladies that work at the café the there. Yeah OMG! No. Good thing my dear friend Fanny came and kept me company for  a little while. Plus another girl came and worked a little bit so I watched one of the films. The Al Pacino movie, The Humbling. It was okay. I don't think that I will watched any of the films today. Or maybe I will, it depends on if anyone else will be working with me because I can't just leave the cash register. Well, well.

Tonight, the last movie actually they're showing one of the horror films that I was talking about last week (?), The Editor. Yeah, I don't think that I will watch it. Or maybe just a little bit in the beginning. Idk.

Like A Boss

Hi! Lets see if I can do a quick post now because I have to leave soon because of work (which is not as boring or as hard as I thought). I work as biografansvarig (how should we translate that, maybe to theater coordinator - yeah I think that is what it actually says that on the staff passes but I haven't got mine yet so I am not actually sure) at Stockholm International Film Festival. Basically I am the boos. My job is to oversee everything and make sure that everything runs smoothly and that the films start on time. I also get to present the films, which is kind of scary because I have a teeny tiny bit of stage fright. Yeah it's a curse. So yesterday I watched to films while I was working. Foxcatcher and The Captive. Well, I didn't watch the whole of Foxcatcher since I had to help the ladies at the cash register, plus we were really short on time between Foxcatcher and The Captive so I had to go and make sure that the movie wouldn't be that much late.

I worked from l…

I Don't Know What To Write Tonight

Hi boys and girls! How are you guys doing? Seriously lately I kind of can't tell which day it is. I just get up and to what I am supposed to do each day. I get that right so maybe I don't have that much to worry about. But it just feels like time flies by since I don't know which day it is.

I know that it is Wednesday today which means that tomorrow is Thursday (see, I know my weekdays). Maybe I'll throw in a funny little tbt. I have one in mind though. Idk, if I am going to post it.

A Lot Of Work

Hi guys! How is everyone tonight? I am good. I realized earlier that will be/ am working everyday this week. Gosh golly, golly gosh! But it will be fun, a fun experience. Plus (or I mean it was like that today) working at the Stockholm Film Festival is not really a high stress level job or at least not from what I experienced today. But later this week I will have more responsibility. So maybe I'll experience some more stress. Not that I want a lot of stress. I am just saying, idk what I am saying but yeah yeah. Hahaha.

Busy Week

Hi guys! This is gonna be a fun and interesting week! Yeah! Tomorrow I start my training or something like that for Stockholm Film Festival. That's going to be interesting. It's going to be fun to have something actual to do, not just something that I should be doing (which I have really done the past few weeks since I have been really busy!). Plus, I will get too meet a ton of new people. That's always fun. Plus, (hopefully, if she doesn't change my schedule again) I'll be working at Skandia, where they'll be having all of the big premieres! What up! Plus there is where all of the celebrities will be! Maybe I'lll get to meet Uma Thurman because I know that she is coming because she is receiving some award.

New Opportunities

Hi guys how are you? I am good, pretty damn good. Hahahaha. LOL. Just had a fun and exciting meeting today about interning for Stockholm Film Festival. It's a lot of work but it's seems pretty fun and she told me that if I want to I can also work with the during the Junior Film Festival that starts in January and runs all the way through April. She was like "Just let me know!". Cool! So it's gonna be a busy couple of weeks but yeah I am ready for it. Plus, since I'll be working at the festival I'll get to see as many movies as I want for free! How cool isn't that?! Maybe now I can go and see all of those crazy movies that I talked abut yesterday.

Stockholm Film Festival

Hi guys! How are you? I am good! I feel like I am getting a sore throat tough, not so fun. Good thing that I bought cough drops the other day. I love these cough drops because they have a mint flavor that gives you a fresh breath. Awesome. I mean I guess that it can be useful sometimes. Hahahaha.

I was looking at Stockholm Film Festival's websites and the different films that they are showing because I kind of want to go. I have never been to the festival. Like every year I am like "Oh, I should go this year." LOL. Maybe this is the year. There are these two very weird (judging from the trailers) horror thriller this year - Wyrmwood and The Editor. Idk. They were just weird. I don't know want I want to see them, plus I am not the horror thriller kind of chick. No thank you. But maybe if lets say Harry Styles took me to see those films. If I could sit there and hold his hand I know that I'd be alright. Hahaha. Dream on girl! Ah, I'll find a non scary film to g…

Nighty Night

You guys I am so freaking tired! I even fell a sleep while watching Harry Potter earlier (maybe I should have had drank some of that coffee that I made). Anyway I still wanted to stop by here and say hello before I go went to bed. So here I am tired as fucking hell so I am going to make this very quick.

I don't really know what to write here so um yeah. Hehehehe. I think that I might upload a video or two on my youtube channel tomorrow. Idk, because I say that everyday. So we'll see. Hahaha. Now I am gonna go to bed so I'll leave you with this picture to enjoy. Have fun. Sleep tight. Party hard because, you now it's Halloween!

A Little Fall Cleaning

Hi guys! Waddup? How are you guys? I am pretty good! I re-did my profile on statist and I am ind of satisfied with it. I had a bunch of unnecessary things on my resume and it just looked messy. Plus I deleted some things because it doesn't look good to have them on your resume, I mean if you want to come off as serious. Idk. Plus I had one entry for each episode of a TV series that I had been an extra in. It just looked a little much, so I did some cleaning. I kind of need some new picture on there too and I would like to upload some pictures in a gallery. LOL, I don't know which ones. I'll get into that tomorrow.

LOL, lately I have been updating my instagram more often. It's mostly Alena stuff. Idk, but I don't feel like my life is interesting and that is why I really don't update it. I have had so much fun on the set of Alena that I want to tell people about it, plus we are allowed post pictures from the set. So why not right? I check the hashtag myself every…

Last Goodbye

Image
Hi guys! So today was the last day. I just felt weird but I am glad that I got to be a part of it, even if it was just as an extra. I feel like I have learn a lot. This is the first time that I feel like I have done anything that feels really professional. Yes, I have done things before as an extra but idk, this just felt more pro and more real. It was a lot of fun and I am very thankful. Before I left today I said goodbye to everyone and wished the good luck with the rest of the filming.

The End

You guys I am sad! Heartbroken! Maybe that is over exaggerating but I am a little sad because tomorrow is the last day on Alena. Well at least for me and the other extras (I think). The production just started so they still have a few of weeks left that, but it's the last time for me and most of the extras. I think that they will use other extras for some of the other scenes where they need extras. Idk, one of the extras said that earlier today. It's sad because we (the extras) have hung out so closely this past week and now we have to part just like that. LOL. We'll probably see each other again soon.


your writer, Erika

A Good Start of The Week

Waddup, waddup? How are you all today? I am good. I had a good day on the set of Alena The Movie today. It was a short day. We (the extras) got to go home at about 2:30 PM, instead of our usual 5 PM. Woop woop! Plus this week we are actually in Stockholm so it doesn't take us over an hour to get to location. Another big plus is that we are shooting inside this week, but the school that we are at is like super cold. Maybe the heat is turned off since it fall break all in Stockholm right now. Idk. (If it is because of that it's good to know that they are environmental, or maybe their are just being economical.)

I hope that you all have had a good start of the week. I have. I'll talk to guys some more tomorrow if I have time.

Thoughts At The End Of The Week

Hi mi amigos! What's going on in your part of the world? Me, I am fine. I was watching Sunday Football earlier but I got to admit that I don't understand a thing about that sport. Okay, I wasn't paying much attention while I was watching either. And paying attention is a key point to understanding something. But I was blowdrying my leggings that I need for next week. Yeah, I was literally sitting there with a blowdryer trying to dry my leggings. LOL.

So has everyone had a good weekend? I have. Kind of chill but tomorrow it's back to work. Aww, it's gonna be sad because Wednesday is my last day on Alena. It feel like I have been working on it for months. LOL, I guess it's because the days are so long. Well well it's been fun anyway. I have some other things lined up and somethings that I really need to get to. So it's gonna be in a way nice to focus a little more on that. LOL, idk but it's funny because I could have had done them like before Alena. S…

Extra Hard Work

Image
Ugh. I am so tired. It's hitting me now, after having been working for seven days straight. Yes I am tired so tomorrow I am just gonna chill. Well I have a few things that I have to do but I am not gonna go further than the grocery store. LOL. Hahahaha. I want to watch Wild Child for one simple reason, that might not make sense to any of you but when you have had the week that I have had it makes sense. LOL. They play lacrosse in the movie and in Alena The Movie (this movie that I am an extra in an have been shooting and have been shooting scenes for all week) we play lacrosse as well. Hahaha. So that's what I am going to do tomorrow, watch Wild Child. Plus I kind of need to rest because I got the call times for next week and no surprise but they're early. But this location is not as far away as the one last week. Yeah! (Yeah because I don't have to get up as early which means that the 6:30 AM call time doesn't scare me as much.) But really, even though the call ti…

Alena

Hi guys! How are you all this fine Thursday? I am good. Starting to feel a bit tired. Just a bit. Hahaha. But I have gonna stay up a little but longer because I want to watch The Originals. Plus I can't sleep anyway. So it doesn't really matters. I have to be up at six tomorrow. Plus I am thinking that maybe if I tire myself out maybe I'll be able to sleep better tonight. Idk.

I am an extra in this upcoming movie based on Kim W. Andersson's graphic novel Alena. You should like Alena The Movie's facebook page https://www.facebook.com/alenathemovie and check out the hashtag #alenathemovie on instagram. This movie is going to be sick! I really can't wait to see it.

An Extra Day

Hi guys! How are you? I am good. Just a teeny tiny bit stressed. Otherwise I am good. I have had so much fun today. I am an extra in this upcoming movie called Alena. It's based on a graphic novel by Kim W. Andersson. There was a copy of the novel in the extras room and seems pretty cool. Google it.

OMG! I am so happy because tomorrow we (all of the extras) has to be on set like extremely early and like an hours ago I got a text saying that there has been a change in the schedule. So now we have to be on set an half hour later! Hallelujah! I am so thankful! There is a God!

Also I feel like mentioning this! Today's rose goes to the SJ man who let me take the train from Bålsta to Stockholm for free. 'Cause I didn't want to pay extra to take the commuter train. Because idk apparently it costs extra to take the commuter train from Bålsta since it's not in Stockholm. I was like "I ain't paying for that." So I called Åsa but she couldn't pick me up but …

A Positive Mind Creates a Positive Vibe

Hi guys! How are you? I am good. I have been really buys today trying to sort out my schedule for this week. It's so embarrassing, because I double booked myself for this Friday, but I haven't got my schedule for Friday yet. I mean so maybe there is still time for my other thing. Idk. But I don't want to call and cancel anything until I know for sure but if I don't get my schedule tomorrow for Friday, maybe I will because I also don't want to call and cancel last minute when I knew in before hand that I was going to be busy. Right?! I mean that is just unprofessional. I'll just reschedule for next week, it's probably no problem (I hope).

Even though that little scheduling problem I feel like this week is going to be great. I mean why not? Why wouldn't it be great? I feel like if you decided that everything is great (I mean going in with an open and positive mind) that it will be. Just don't be to set in how it should be/ how you pictured it to be in…

Swedes Loves SB

Hi guys! How are you this lovely Sunday evening? Are you alright? I am okay I guess. I mean I am okay. I am fine.

So this weekend I have met two people who have lived in Santa Barbara! What's with that city and Swedes?! Hahahaha. I mean I know. California sunshine. I mean - personally - I am sick and tired of this weather that we have in this country. I am seriously craving warmer weather and sunshine. Please, is that too much to ask for. But still, there is LA and a bunch of there cities in southern California. And warmer states for that matter! Why Santa Barbara? I mean it wasn't even my first choice, it's what I had to settle with. I ended up liking it, but that's not the answer to my question.

Here's To Trying New Things

Hi guys! How are you? I am good. Goodie good good. Hahahaha. Nah, but I am good. I tried something new today, lacrosse. It wasn't as bad I dreaded it to be. Well well, but that also doesn't mean that I am overly excited to play some more. Though I don't think that it will be as tough. I am not the outdoorsy type, or the sports gal. I mean playing sports. I can enjoy watching it but that's an other thing. Just because I am not the type also doesn't mean that I won't have fun while trying it at least once. It just mean that I probably, most likely won't do it twice. If I work out, I am more the going to the gym kind of gal. Hahaha.

OMG there is going to be a country music festival in Stockholm in February next year! OMG. This is really cool! Not that I am the biggest country music fan but still it would be pretty sick to go. So far Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Brandy Clark, Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, Brantley Gilbert and Kip Moore have been announced…

How I Almost (no I didn't) Met Ariana Grande - but I met her crew anyway :p

Image
Hi guys! (Sorry for being absent for two days.) So if you're Swedish or an Arianator you know that Ariana Grande is in Sweden atm because she is performing on the Swedish Idol tonight. Yeah, I am super duper excited.

Last night I was at Arlanda with a couple of there fangirls hoping to meet Ari. I am going to spoil the story for you guys and say it was kind of fail but keep reading because it wasn't a complete fail, even though we never met Ariana.

Okay, so I got to the airport at around 16:30 or so. There were already two girls there. Then my friend came and all of us started to hang out there together because like why not? I mean we were all there for the same thing. Why not waste time together? LOL. Plus I know who the others two girls were. So we hung together, walking between terminals because we didn't know which airline she was flying with (well, we knew for sure that is wasn't Norwegian). LOL, we had so much fun (or at least I had fun anyway).

When there was ju…

Shorty Shorty

Hi guys! I guess that it is that time of the day, for me to write something here. LOL. You know what, I finally updated to iOS 8. iOS 8.0.2 to be exact. I had to delete about 1 200 pictures and videos on my phone in-oder to make some room for the update. LOL, but I have a lot of useless pictures and screenshots on my phone. Plus I like rarely delete a picture on my phone (don't ask me why because idk). These new apps though? Are they any good. I don't get them. Hehehehe, I have only had the update for like, what less than two hours. Eh, I'll explore them some more tomorrow.

LOL, this was a short one. I'll talk to you some more tomorrow!

Parachute

Image
Hi guys, how have you all been today? My day has been great, or I have been in a good mood and that is why I consider it great! Waddupp, LOL! (IDK.)

So I have been following this artist, Olivia Somerlyn, on facebook for a few years now. I also follow her on instagram. Anyway, in the beginning of the summer she released this song called Parachute and idk why but now I decided to listen to it. It is really good! I have heard her singing before, and I have one of her song in my phone. I guess I just expected the song to be different. Every time that I listen to it I feel like getting up on my feet and dance around the apartment. It's a really good song! So I tweeted my excitement about the song and Olivia tweeted me back! WHAAAT?! How cool isn't that! Aaaaa! Thank you Olivia! If you haven't heard Parachute, you should really listen (I posted an audio video below)!

Sunday Chill Day

Hi guys! What have you done this fine Sunday? Me, I have just been at home all day. Not doing much, folding the laundry (not that that was like necessary information to you but anyway), watching a movie on Netflix and basically just been listening to Ella Henderson's debut album Chapter One. It's freaking amazing! Her voice like WOW! I hope that she comes back to Sweden soon, 'cause I really like to meet her again. The last time that she was here I didn't get a chance because I was busy with something else. Sad, that didn't get to meet her.

Hmm. Well, maybe not like that because Ariana Grande is coming to Sweden on Friday. She is performing on Idol. I know two people who works there, so I am really jealous of both of them at the moment. Maybe more jealous of them because 1D is coming to the Idol finale in December. Well, well. No time to be a Negative Nelly. I know that Scooter is with Ari in London right now, so I wonder if her will come with her to Sweden. Scoote…

Where I Am

Image
Hi guys! OMG it happened again! WTF it's past 11 PM! How did that happened? I am just here like watching a movie on TV and boom time decides to pass and suddenly it's past 11 PM. Idl but sometimes it feels like the time just flies by. BTW, how are you all today? I am good. I went and saw the Where We Are movie. Yeah! It was like being back at the Where We Are Tour. Awww, I miss it so damn much! I love them for doing this.

You know what I tried a winged eyeliner today and I think that it turned out pretty good. Okay, yeah so I googled how to it. I mean I just wanted to get it right. Hahaha, but I gotta say that I am pretty pleased with the result. Well, you can see for yourself!

Here I Am Tonight

Wait what happened to the time? Like, a few minutes ago it was 8 PM and then I decide to watch The Vampire Diaries and NTL Coriolanus, and woops it's past 11 PM. SMH, hahaha. LOL.

Do you know what tomorrow is? Of course you do. It's the premiere of Where We Are! Aaaah! I am so excited to see it. Hmmm, but there is just one problem thought - I don't know what to wear. Hmmm. That is a huge problem. Maybe if I had that skirt that I blogged about last night (you see, I told you that my life would be so much better if I had it! It would even solve a krises, the one that I am having right now about not knowing what to wear tomorrow when I am going to the movies #firstworldproblems). I'll figure something out.

You know that I have been posting monologues on youtube (yeah I know that they are terrible!). I want to redo them because I know that I can to do better than that. I posted a little preview on keek of one of the monologues that I have been working. I'll post the fu…

Erika Apparel

I am in love… with a skirt. I saw this skirt earlier this evening and I just fell in love with, plus the skirt looks super cute on. I want it so bad. It's from American Apparel. It's just gorge. It's absolutely gorge! I need this skirt in my closet. I need it, I just know how much my life will improve if I aide this skirt. LOL. You may laugh at me, but just look at the gorgeousness of this skirt and I know you will agree. I just keep imagine me walking around sassy and pushing my hair from side to side (in this scenario I am long hair). Plus I have a lolly pop in my hand, just to add some playful sassiness.

It's Advanced

Hi guys! How are you all this fine evening? What have you all done today? I have just been doing my usual. Living the glamours life as an extra. LOL. There is absolutely nothing glamours about being an extra on TV of in movies. Well, if there is I must have missed that part or maybe I am not just at the level since I have only been doing this for almost two years. Like maybe it's something that you work you way up to. Something you have to earn through years of hard work and dedication. Hahaha.

I just read this article about the term "advanced extra". It's something that I do see often. (From what I understood) It's a made up title by production companies/ people in the business so that they are able to go around contracts saying how much they actually have pay an actor for their job. It sounds fancy because it has the word "advanced" but that's far from reality. The term is not covered by (caution: a bunch of swedish words are coming!) teaterförbun…
