Bike? Like? Bikelike?

Around this time every year I'm thinking about getting a new bike. Brand new and shiny. Not some leftover because my other one got stolen. I haven't had a really good bike since I was a kid (and yeah, I probably wrote the same thing last year).
But I really need to settle this bike buying thing in my head because it's not like me to spend money on practical stuff that I need. Duh!
I'm so stupid, I use my bike almost every day and it should probably be very nice to have a good bike on which the gears and the brakes actually works.

But I don't know anything about bikes.. Should I get a city bike like one of these?

Or should I just get a ordinary bike like this one?

Anyone know pro's and con's?

Can't everyone??

It's official!

Yeah, it really is official now! It's spring! We have 10 degrees now and the forecast say that we're heading against 17 this weekend.
I even took my knitted shawl off today on the way home because I was too hot and when I came home I found his in the garden.

08 – A song that I know all the words to

I know all the words to many many song. I don't now why but lyrics just stick to my head like glue and I remember them all. But I chose this old song that I learned already in my teens. Swedish punkrock music at it's best. Räserbajs - Fina Flickor Fiser inte. (Nice girls don't fart.)

And the funniest thing about it is that it is my mums favourite tune, mostly because she always laughs at anything with farts.. Mum - this is for you!

07 - A song that reminds me of a certain event

In September last year I had the good opportunity to see my good friend Caroline win a K1 fight against the girl who was the Swedish champ in muay thai. After the fighting gala that enjoyed us with several good fights we went to an afterparty where they played this son all the time. It's funny how you can have good memories to a song that actually is very sad.

Thai boxing is helping not hurting..

I was really tired and felt totally lost today. Had no concentration ability what so ever and all I actually wanted to do was to get home and sleep. I hadn't eaten more than two sandwiches and a apple so my energy level wasn't exactly up at training level.
I dragged myself down to the fight gym and took a 75 minutes class. I don't say it went well, you have to eat to exercise. But it did go ok, and the best of all, I did feel a whole lot better afterward. I always do, it's just hard to remember when you fall asleep in the car on the way home and think that the sofa is the only thing you can cope with at the moment.
So now I quote a cliche and a slogan: JUST DO IT!

06 – A song that reminds me of somewhere

The first time Malin and me went away on vacation together we spent a little too much time in the nights at a bar called Pasha. And they almost had this song on repeat. I'm not saying that it's very good but it sure brings good memories back!

No derby post

I'm sorry. There will be no derby post today. We had our big annual meeting today, it took hours so there was no practice. And things are just too hard today..

05 - A song that reminds me of someone


It's actually kind of hard to bring this happy facade all the time.
I had a shitty day in many ways yesterday and I just need to get it out of my system. It didn't happen any particular and it did even happen a few good things but my body just didn't get it and you can easily say that my mood was at my feet.

Maybe it was because the ad for selling our house now is on the web?
Maybe it was because I missed the bus and train to Copenhagen?
Maybe it was because that the party I was going to was canceled because there was too many people who got indisposed?
Maybe it was because I didn't pass the written part of the minimum skills test?
Or maybe it just was because I'm so unstable right now that I can cry just because someone is saying something kind?


I felt really sad all day, starting from the moment I woke up and all those things didn't make me happier.

But this thing should have done it.
I do have both an apartment and a room in Copenhagen on it's way and if I don't get the apartment I will move in with this super friendly girl from Copenhagen Roller Derby that I went to Copenhagen to meet yesterday. It feels great but in the same time really hard because now it's getting so real that we actually are leaving each other..

04 - A song that makes me sad

Yeah, I have quite a bunch of them right now. And I'm sure you understand why without further explanation. Juliette and the Licks - Long road out of here.. You just have to listen to it..

Anyway! I refuse to be sad tonight. I'm on my way to Denmark to see some soccer and to party a bit. I'm sure it will be fun, so lets not think about all hard stuff now.
See you tomorrow!


When you longing for the summer as I do, you can't really resist looking at summer clothes. The stores is flooding with news and the pictures makes you miss the warmth even more.
I've dreamed about sunshine, laying on the beach and warm long nights a little more than appropriate in the last weeks. I want to have sunkissed skin, a healthy glow and messy beach hair.
And to all that I want this fabulous orange dress from Acne.

03 - A song that makes me happy

This song is making me happy. I don't really know why but I like it! And it gives me the friday feeling!

Tonight I'm going to play roller derby for three hours and then it's just weekend!
I can't wait!

I'm so beige..

I got this pant as a gift from my mum in february but haven't used them until now. I like the way that they're grey/beige instead of just plain beige. And I really like the model, the cigarette look of the legs and and the pockets on my butt!

And I promise, they look even better with shoes on.

02 – My least favorite song

There is loads of crappy music out there but one song that makes me puke is this one. I absolutely hate it and it reminds me of Swedish town festivals with all their cover bands playing it and the rednecks are going crazy! Ueww!

How can one choose one song to be their favourite?
Couldn't be harder, but right now I have to say that it's this Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites by Skrillex that is my favourite.

Black attack!

Another one of my finds from friday is showing here. It's a bad pic I know, but therefor also the angry face. I couldn't get a better one.
It's a black, little bit longer, slouchy cardigan in wool and angora blend. I had a tight, long cashmere cardigan from ZARA before but I did actually wear it out. It's big holes on the elbows and it's not looking very nice anymore.
The thing I want to say is: It was needed! I can't live without an item like that. It's from Spirit by the way.

It's so funny that it looks like I have leopard wallpapers... It's not funny that it ain't.

Today I'm in a really long meeting in Fredericia so this post is pre-posted. I left home at 6 am and I'm not home until 10.30 pm. Gosh, it's a long day for sure..

Update: Now with working pic!!

Sunday, March 20, 2011


I f***cking did it! I passed the test! I'm so relieved right now and happy and exhausted of course.
The test took two and a half hour and we were almost skating all the time. My thighs were actually shaking from skating and most of all, nervousness.

I couldn't take a victory pic, so it will have to do with a pic of a veeery nervous me before I left home.

Next Saturday I'm going to take the written test and this week I'm getting feedback on things I should practice more. Just because you pass doesn't mean that you are perfect in any way.
But if I pass on saturday too I will get to scrimmage and later on bout.

And now, my friends, I'm going to skate my ass of 'cause practice makes perfect!!

Saturday, March 19, 2011


I don't really know if I classify this jacket I bought yesterday as one of my thousand leopard printed items. I probably don't.. Haha
I like it a lot though and it was really cheap. Think it will look good to highwaisted black pants or to a tube dress.

Ebay isn't good for you..

...I'm holding my thumbs for an auction at Ebay right now.. I shouldn't.. But I do.

Super Mario

I've totally been a shopoholic today! I've found loads of nice things and I really really needed the all. Haha. Especially this little mushroom keychain from MissJuniversum. Did you know you can play Super Mario online here?No, but really. I did buy stuff I needed, like black pants, a black wool cardingan and some sport tops. Some funnier clothes as well but I will show you that another day.

Tonight Camilla and me has been eating satay veggie chicken and lots of candy and talked and talked. It was really nice to meet her, it's been a while and we could use some girltime..

Good Morning!!

In an hour I'm off to meet my mum! Too bad it's been snowing and it's cold. We were hoping for a nice and sunny day, but no.
But what to do? And what's better than starting your day with a really really good song!

Enjoy! And have a nice friday!

Thursday, March 17, 2011


I've totally forgot to show you the bag I ordered from Nelly a few weeks ago. It's a Ted Baker bag in canvas and I just love the graphic print. Ted Baker is doing very nice bags and yeah yeah, I know I've said that I'm not a bag girl, but maybe I've found two bags this spring. (I haven't actually found this lovely one yet, but I'm trying!)
Anyway, I think this is the ultimate "going out" bag for now, it holds a lot of stuff but it's still small enough to not bother you.Tomorrow it's friday and I have a day off! My mum is coming here and we're totally going to shop us around the city! Yey!

Minimum Skills Test

Ok, you probably know that I feel that I should write something sad or post a lot of things about how sad I am and so on. But I won't. I don't want to pour all that hard stuff over you and most of all, I need to focus on something else.

Anyway, if I do slip, please forgive me.

This weekend I'm going to do the minimum skills test for roller derby players. It contains loads of different moves and skating skills. You should be able to jump, skate on one leg, getting hit and still be stable, do 25 laps around the track in 5 minutes. And that's just a tiny part of it.
I'm getting really nervous right now and I've decided to skip my muay thai classes this week so I can be really fresh and going all in to pass the test.
If you want to know more, all the stuff I shall pass is here.

Wish me luck!

Here's a clip from the CCR-STRD bout last weekend! Isn't it awesome!?

The hardest post..

This will be the hardest post ever to write...

I'm not going to go very deep. For you who followed my blog a longer time, you know I've been in a relationship and we were supposed to get married. We've bought a house. We were living the happy family dream.


We broke up.. I can not live that family life right now..

It hurts, it hurts really really bad.

I'm so sorry..

Hell yeah we won!!

Crime City Rollers had the first Swedish bout ever against Stockholm Roller Derby today! And we won!! Really good numbers that I can't remember. I was head of merch and we sold like crazy!
We have such nice merch now so I'm not really surprised. And everybody want to buy to support us so it's great! I bought this cap from STRD and this is our first t-shirt from CCR!
This will also be my going out outfit tonight because I just don't have the energy to do anything but to drink some wine..

8th of March.. a special day. And I think if you schould do something you should think about all the women in the world that don't have the same rights as us in f.eks northern europe.

Did you know that:
  • That violence in their own home is the most common cause of death for women.
  • 50 000 women is sold to only the US every year.
  • That only 1% of the world's money is owned by women
Give your support to a women who need it. Visit ActionAid!

Saturday was fun! Lovely girls with nice drinks and then really good music, dancing and funny friends. I lost everything I had with me to the club, but I called them today and everything was there but my phone. Puh! Lucky me.
So I will head over, hopefully tomorrow and fetch it.

All Out Dubstep: Kutz, Drama, Untiz, Trickykid, EBoi - Inkonst

This monday started out with 5 km running at 7 am, then work and then straight to muay thai class at Golden Leaf. Now I've landed in the coach with some mackerel sandwiches but I need to drag myself to the shower.. How's your monday been?

Weekly derby post

Today Crime City Rollers had their training bout against Rollin Heartbreakers from Copenhagen. This is one of the jams where I think it's Razorbelle from CCR in black jamming and Krazy Kris from RH in white.
It was a really nice day, everybody was doing soo good and I really think we're ready for the big bout against STRD next week!
I was just the band aid girl today which suited me fine 'cause I was slightly hangover from yesterday. But it really was a good saturday night.. Tell you more about that in another post.
Now: Cola!

Saturday, March 5, 2011

Tonight tonight!

Or tomorrow night or what you say.. But it's the 5th now so we say tonight.
Anna, Eva and Karin is coming here before and it's going to be an awesome night I'm sure!
First some Roller Derby in the afternoon, then drinks and food and then dancing, dancing, dancing! See you in the flashing lights!

At Lipgloss Bitch, that I read all the time I found this fabulous pic. It's from an ad for a make up company called Illamasqua. I've never tried any of their products, but Lipgloss Bitch has and you can read about them in her blog.

I found books on sale at the local grocery store yesterday. Not very cheap but ok. I bought two chick-lit books. Chasing Harry Winston (Diamanter är för evigt på svenska) by Lauren Weisberger, you'll know, she that wrote The devil wears Prada. And then a swedish book by Marika King named Supernova.I read very very much and I read everything. Usually I buy books in english because I want them to last a little bit longer. Yeah, I'm a really quick reader. I also tried some books in danish and that's quite good as well.
Anyway after the last book I read, Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell which was a smart, violent and bloody mafia story I feel that some cheer me up books will suit their purpose.
Please feel free to leave a comment with your favourite books!
