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…

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!
