Training Instructor Gala

1 May

This Saturday, I went to the training instructor gala that our company gives every year, and since I’ve been a water aerobics instructor for only a year it was my first time meeting with all the instructors around south Stockholm area.

And how exciting I knew I was nominated in two categories; “best rookie” and “best rising star”-kinda category. And I actually won “best rising star”, with the motivation that in a short time I’ve developed fast and become really good as an instructor, popular amongst the customers – always happy and active, with a positive attitude. I had to make a speech, not prepared. But very happy about the nomination and that I won! Also got a goodie bag filled with many nice stuff! 🙂

I feel really content and happy about myself and the things I accomplished in such a short time!

Spring Flowers Finally Popped Up!

26 Apr

Spring is really late here in Sweden. I use to visit the Japanese Cherry Flower’s Day in Kungsträdgården, Stockholm City, by this time a year – but now they aren’t even in bloom! Despite the fact, they celebrated the event on 20th April. No flowers. But hopefully by a week or more they will be in bloom, and then I will visit. …and oh, I just heard they are on it’s way to bloom, so in less of week, the city will be filled with lovely pink flowers! 🙂

Anyway, had to take some pics of some of the flowers here in Rönninge. They are coming fast now, after so many months of cold.

Inspirational oldie. Are we human or are we raising a generation of dancers?

M By Madonna – Madonna <3 H&M

22 Apr

M_for_madonna_fashionHMIn 2007, Madonna launched a clothing line for the Swedish brand H&M. Back in those days I was really broke, being a student and paying really high rent for my apartment and so on, so all I could do was window shopping for those things.

But this Friday, lucky me got my hands on a dress from that collection as I went second hand shopping in one of my favourite second hand stores. All of a sudden, it was there – the right size and looking brand new! I bought the dress for 80SEK, about 12$. So this one is really my new love of my wardrobe! Hadn’t had the time yet to take photos of myself in that dress, but to get a glimpse of it I provide some press pics.

Weekends Are For Shopping

14 Apr

Since I work every other weekend, those weekend when I don’t work – they are kinda sacred shopping weekends. At least one day on the weekend, I tend to go shopping. This weekend I spent both Saturday and Sunday by shopping. This is some stuff that I came home with. 🙂

Today’s Make-up – Save The Green Planet

9 Apr

green - Kopia kopiera

I’m not being naive, I don’t think my eyes will save the planet, but it feels like a great thing to say. 😉 Personally, I love green. Jade green is my absolutely favourite colour; that is on make-up, things and other artefacts, but no – not in clothes. Jade green is the only colour I look really bad in. It’s true! Or at least in my head.

Great thing then that I fit in jade green make-up. Have fun out there girls, and promise me you’ll try on a different eye shadow today! 🙂

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Color

9 Apr

045 - Kopia

When I heard that the new challenge was about colour, I instantly thought of a pic that I took when I went to the London Olympics in August last year. I won a trip via my work and went with Ricoh to London, got tickets to the games and so on.

This pic is from the first evening there. Soon Bolt is going to run the final of 200 metres, and win along with his fellow Jamaicans Blake (silver medal) and Weir (bronze medal). Looking back it feels very abstract that I actually was there and saw all this. A colourful memory for life! 🙂
