7 Things I Like


I like ballet just as much as when I first tried it. I've been dancing it for three years. Past season I tried level 3/2 which was easier then expected. I planned to continue with level 2 and by misstake took a harder option. That misstake has been good for my confidence. I want to continue on this level. I might get my next chance this autumn and winter.

Relaxing next to a forest water

That is something I would like to do more this summer. The opportunities are not far away. And it makes me calm. I'm hoping for good weather! And friends joining me.

Revlon 640 Fearless nail polish

This nail polish has been a good buy. I absolutely love it. I like that is has a subtle shine with the intense color. This one I want to wear weekly. It's my top favorite nail polish.

Makeup Mekka Kiss and Blush Cream Touch- Lollipop

 From Makeup Mekka Summer Heat collection this product interested me. I like cream makeup. With it one can create a nice dewy finish quick. It's been a long time since I've used coral colors. This one reminds me of summer and ocean. It even has a scent! And the design is salient.

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Of books I read now this is most entertaining. It has much atmosphere which I like. Much of the story shows the main characters thoughts. I found it so interesting to read. Maybe therefore I easily accepted that the monster first greets and meets main character and creator halfway in the story. Where the monster talks about his experiences beeing alive.

Nille pen

This is the cutest treat in a while. It's so pretty.

Bik Bok Be Ellie hoops

I've wanted to use pearl accessory for a while. But not seen anything interesting until recently. I just found the perfect treat. Since I love hoops and details this treat has been my accessory buy. I'm going to wear them with basic clothes. And anything else that might fit.

I Want to Write

I began today with breakfast, music and writing. That's a rare combination for me. For long I've done little short story writing. I've felt completely stuck. How nice it was to get a good feeling about it.

I did not want to stay home all day and went to a cafe. Where I continued writing and read.  

 At the library later I found a short story collection I've wanted to read. "Hold heisen" (2019) by Nora Lindblad. I've read in it already.

 I have a new reading goal. That is to read short stories weekly. 

When writing is fun it feels like many good things has happened to me in a short time. 

What motivates you to write?

Just Read. Dronen(2019) by Unni Lindell

This easter I spent time reading "Dronen" (meaning the drone) by Unni Lindell. The atmosphere for a long time I would describe as the feeling you can get of someone watching you. Gradually I felt the atmosphere change. I found the first half most interesting. Overall I liked the book. 

The main character is Marian Dahle, a police woman. At work she begins to investigate a murder that has happened recently in a forest. A man is found dead in a tent. And before that happened a man studied the area with a drone and saw him and his tent. And decided to go there in secret. 

Marian suggests that someone might have used a drone to watch the area before the crime. The guilty usually stays close to the place where the crime happened. Sometimes I felt that was a bit strange.

Marian has problems of her own and the killer causes more problems for her when a neighbour goes missing.  

I had no problem getting into the books own universe. It was well written and atmospheric. The length of story was good. I would like to read more of Unni Lindell's books. 

Have you read this book?
