It's been one hell of a week and I need some relaxation.. Which size on the wine glass depends on the mood ;) 
His and hers :)
Hope you have a cozy night :)


I'm having a really shit day! It feels like I'm fighting a battle against the world. Nothing goes my way and I'm so fu*kin tired of todays society.. Gah, I don't want to study in this FUCKED UP country anymore and how the fuck does the politicians think that a 22-year old living in her own apartment could live on 370€ a month!!? It doesn't even cover my rent! It feels like the government isn't doing shit for the citizens at the moment.. You either have to incur debt as fuck or do paralellt work with school, yeah our system is soooooo goood!!
Monday I hate you. Society I hate you. Mood swings I hate you. 
So I thought:"Hey, lets release some heat and do an egoshoot"...
Yeaaah.. That always turns out sooo good when your in a bad mood!


When we got home from our little holiday I had a package waiting for me, and it contained the first five books in the series "Sagan om isfolket". The second book was missing for some reason, which sucks since I like the second one really much. Yes I've read all the 47 books before, it is without doubt the best books i've read in my entire life! I've been planning to buy them for almost two years now and when I had my birthday I decided to order them as a gift to myself. Since I finished reading "Sagan om Isfolket" I haven't been able to find a book that has got me hooked, so I just stopped reading for almost two years and I will tell you; IT HAS BEEN SO BORING! I am a little book worm who love books and reading, but nothing could compare to these books! This is a book serie I'd like to see in everyones bookshelves!! Everybody should get to read "Sagan om Isfolket" atleast once in their lifetime :P Now I just want to say, see you in a year or so from now,
"No life / reading mode" ON ;)


So yeah, I've got an unused excess Triopo tripod ball head at home that I'd like to sell! The original price is 49€, so I was thinking about something around 40€. Delivered in a burgundy velvet bag and original packaging. If this sounds interesting, mail me at and we can discuss further!

From my speakers at the moment; 
The Finns also knows music! 



I'm back bit*hes ;)
Babe and I decided to go away on a little weekend getaway together. It was so nice to be away with my love and spend some quality time together. I feel so blessed, he is my big love, my life and my best friend! Here's a short video from our little getaway, watch it in 1080p! Shot with Nikon D7000 and edited with iMovie on iPad. 


I'm taking a scheduled break, starting tonight.
I will return with some awesome updates on Tuesday or Wednesday and 'til then we'll have "Questions and Answers". You can ask me anything you want in the comments section on this post and when I'm back I'll answer your questions! Take your chance to get to know me a little bit more :)


Aah, autumn holidays I love you!
Apparently it's currently snowing back home, insane! Autumn is turning into winter sooner than I expected. I don't think I've had the moment to catch it on photo, as it's been every single autumn the last six years. I'd say I've been more motivated this year than previous ones though, but I think that's because I bought my new camera this summer! Every single year I tell myself "This year I'm going to take some amazing photos!", but then I always get so depressed and closed up in the autumn and loose all my motivation. Then I think we live in such a beautiful city, so that is absolutely keeping me motivated!
Babe got me a late birthday gift! There is some significant difference between a 130€ carbon fibre tripod and a 20€, like my previous ones! I was so surprised when he even knew that I wanted a carbon fibre tripod from Triopo, but then he told me it wasn't too hard to figure it out,
"It was on your b-day wishlist on your blog honey ;)"...
Today is cleaning and laundry day and the cats are scared shitless as always.. They are so afraid of the vacuum cleaner! Happy got his own little nook in the corner of the sofa today and he is actually still in the same corner, I think somone found a new favorite spot :P I love Happy's amber eyes!


Late night nostalgia and I have nothing to say besides; BRA SKIT!


We've all been there, you try to log in on your blog, facebook page or whatever... BUT THE INTERNET IS STONE DEAD!! The timing is of course always perfect, when you have soooo many things you need to do. You check your phone once again, realises the god d*mn internet still is dead and you just want to throw your phone against a brick wall... This is what happens to a geek when her internet is off, I now introduce you to the magnificent movie
(watch it in 1080p!)

(And yes, I do apologize sooooo much for my worthless updates!! I've just been so empty and haven't found anything interesting to update you guys on!)


Wow, what an amazing weekend!! Thank you everyone who made it this amazing! It was so fun having my family and friends over, it made me so happy. I seriously have the best family and friends ever! My friends are my family and I want to grow old with all of you guys! Today I have to hunt for a coat and some shoes, my canvas shoes are starting to get a bit to cold for this autumn weather.. 
Warning for photo bomb ;)

Good morning sweeties!
I just woke up and now I'm having my morning coffee (surprise, surprise!) and should start browsing some cake recipes! Mom, dad and my sister and brother are paying us a visit tomorrow since it's my birthday next week. They haven't seen our apartment since we moved here either, so it's going to be real fun to have them over. Otherwise I dont have much else planned today, wait to get our new bed that we ordered last weekend, it should be delivered today and of course make some cakes and keep you guys updated! If you have some nice cake recipes, dont hesitate to share them with me, I need all inspiration I can get :)
Have a nice one :)
 Lord of the rings, a whole plate full of different cheeses, crackers, tomatos with onion in vinaigrette and my favorite candy Dumle together with my love, perfect thursday evening! Yes, we both are crazy about cheese!
 I say good morning, the eliminated hero Hilda says good night! 


Tonight I'll put my hairdresser talents to the test! I'm really lucky (and grateful) for all the years I helped out at my dad's aunt's hair salon! But first, a cup of coffee! ;) 


WOAH, this is insane!! My blog statistics shot in the sky today! You guys are just amazing!! So, here's something I threw together earlier this evening (in swedish though)! Filmed with Nikon D7000 and edited in iMovie. Hope you enjoy, watch it in 720p!


 I love this city and all the beautiful colors in the fall! I really like filming!!


Jag väljer att skriva detta på svenska, skulle vara allt för mycket jobb att översätta allt till engelska och få texten så att den flyter och låter bra. Det här är mina egna ord, en del av mitt hjärta och något som jag aldrig riktigt delat med någon. Jag är ännu osäker på publiceringen, men det här är ord jag vill ha sparade för mig själv här på bloggen. Jag hoppas att ni föstår att läsa utan kritiska ögon, kommer nämligen dela en stor del av mig med er. 


Hela mitt liv har jag gått runt och funderat vem min morfar är. Det enda jag vetat om honom är att han stack när mormor berättade att hon var gravid med mamma. Mormor har aldrig talat med mig om vad som hände då för fyrtiofem år sen.
Jag minns en gång för sju-åtta år sen, jag och mormor satt på mitt rum och tittade på ett gammalt släktträd i nån gammal bok, där rutan för "morfar" var tom. Hon var så nära på att berätta för mig vem min morfar var, men rätt som det var vände hon blad i boken och stängde sig själv. Jag var så upprörd och frustrerad, hon hade nästan uttalat hela första stavningen i förnamnet, och plötsligt var det som om hon slog en spik i den kistan för all framtid. Jag skulle nog aldrig få veta vem min morfar var..
Det här har fått mig att ifrågasätta vem fan "mannen" är som lämnar en gravid kvinna till sitt egna öde, för mycket man har han då aldrig varit i mina ögon. Jag har alltid tänkt mig att han säkert har en stor fin funktionell familj som han älskar över allt annat. Liknar hans döttrar, söner och barnbarn mig? Tänker han ofta på kvinnan och barnet han lämnade i sticket?
Under hela min uppväxt har det känts som om en väldigt stor bit saknats och jag har alltid känt mig som "flickan som inte har någon morfar". Alla barn i skolan berättade alltid så fina historier om vad dom hade gjort tillsammans med sina mor-&farföräldrar förra helgen, men inte jag. Jag hade farmor,mormor, moster, fastrar och farbröder i ett land som låg allt för långt borta för att vi skulle kunna berätta fina familjehistorier från förra helgen.
Det var inte direkt som jag hade bra kontakt med min farfar, faster och farbror under uppväxten heller. I dagens läge har jag inte pratat med farfar och hans fru på närmare tre år, senaste gången jag såg dem var förra vintern när dom kom med födelsedagspresenter till min lillebror, farfar sa inte ens hej åt mig den gången. Min faster har tre eller fyra barn som jag aldrig träffat och min farbror har jag inte heller som farfar sett på flera år.
Det är i alla fall inte en lätt sak att få grepp om som barn, jag förstod aldrig varför morfar lämnat mormor. Det var ju som om pappa skulle gjort det samma åt mamma, och pappa var min stora hjälte vilket helt enkelt fick mig att tro att alla män skulle vara lika nobla som jag såg min egen far.
Jag minns historierna som mamma berättade från när hon var liten, minns hur hon berättade att den enda mannen hon sett som sin far var mormors sista man. Mannen som jag själv såg som min egna morfar, även om jag aldrig hann träffa honom innan han gick bort. Mannen som jag själv uppfattade ha världens största hjärta utifrån alla historier jag hörde genom min barndom, mannen som fanns där för mormor och mamma. Jag såg honom som min morfar och mamma såg honom som den enda far hon haft.
I lördags natt fick jag, efter 22 års grubblande, veta vem min morfar är!
Han var inte alls den själlösa mannen jag alltid anklagat honom vara, han var inte nån idiot som hade skaffat sig en ny bättre familj, han hade inga andra barn eller barnbarn.
Min morfar dog en månad efter att jag föddes.
Han var exakt den mannen jag sett som morfar hela livet, han var den man som mamma hade sagt "Ifall jag skulle få välja, skulle du vara min far" åt. Min morfar och mammas far, var den man som mamma trodde var hennes styvfar, men i verkligheten var hennes riktiga far.
I tjugotvå år är det som om en femtedel av mitt påbrå saknats och jag har intalat mig att morfar alltid var ett stort jävla svin. Varför skulle han annars ha lämnat mormor när hon nyss berättat att hon var gravid? Så får jag veta att det slutligen var mannen som mormor älskade över allt annat, mannen som mamma såg som far och den man som jag alltid sett som morfar. Den sinnessjuka konflikten som uppstår inom en är när man får veta att den underbara mannen man alltid såg honom som var samma person som man anklagat och hatat för att man trott han var världens största svin. Biten håller sakta men säkert att falla på sin plats, stormen inom mig håller på att lugna sig. Jag har aldrig haft rätt att anklaga honom för alla de saker jag gjort, vem är jag att döma!?


Backlight photography and autumn colors ❤️
This is how a leaf look through a reversed lens :)


Ladies and gentlemen, this is why you're supposed to shoot in raw!
The simplest description of RAW files is that they can be thought of as digital negatives. I clearly remember how frustrated I used to get when I didn't have any control over the camera settings and there were burnt out or underexposed parts in almost every picture I shot and I never chose to shoot in RAW just because I didn't know what the difference between JPEG and RAW format (there was a time when I could shoot about over 300 photos and I didn't get satisfied with a single one!).

The most significant difference between RAW and JPEG is that RAW holds so much more image data than JPEG does and you get to apply all of your edits with no sacrifice of image quality.
It actually took me five years to switch from JPEG to RAW and it took me this long just because of the most RAW files require you conduct some degree of post processing via photo editing software to convert your image to an editable file type for editing. Now when I'm working with my ipad and PS Touch this is now longer a problem and my workflow is so smooth from what it used to be.

My best and shortest advice to every newbie is to read the manual (the first time I read a manual was when I bought my camera six years ago!) and analyze what might have gone wrong and do better next time! A failure does not mean you are failing, it just means you're learning from your mistakes. Never give up and take in all feedback you get and develop from this! 


I'm just peeking in here for a few minutes, I'm on my way out on a photo walk! Just wanted to tell you I'm alive, it's just my motivation is a bit low at the moment.. Here is a video of Happy and Hilda from this morning. It's not always easy being the good big brother, especially with this teasing little diva ;) You can really see how he wants to hit her in the face at the end of the video. Feedback is always appreciated! :)
