Ik zit hier aan mijn bureau in mijn kamer in Zweden en zag zo'n mooie zonsondergang. Ik heb er snel een foto van gemaakt. Vandaag was het een prachtige dag, hopelijk morgen weer!
Zoals jullie kunnen lezen ben ik over gegaan op het nederlands. Dat is toch wel fijn, in een land waar ik de eerste weken/maanden alleen maar engels kan praten. En ik heb gemerkt dat ik toch voornamelijk reactie's krijg van Nederlands-talige lezers.
Nu ik hier meer begin te wennen komen er waarschijnlijk ook meer berichtjes op mijn blog, ik heb de tijd :)

/A beautiful sunset here in Sweden. I just caught the moment and share it here with you all!

New buys - Gina Tricot

♥ Pictures from here and here
Saturday I went with my hostmum and my hostsister to Örebro, a bigger city in Sweden. I shopped a few nice things. A cardigan by Gina Tricot. My hostsis gave me a knitted sweater, also from Gina Tricot. I am really happy with them, 'cause winter is cold in Sweden!

My new.. Shoes!

Hi, here I am again!
It is great in Sweden, I like the school and my host family is great!
Today I bought a pair of lovely shoes, and the funny thing was that the salesman in the store was Dutch! It was nice talking Dutch again, because the last week I heard Swedish and English...
The shoe brand is Peperoni

Off to Sweden

Dear Readers,

Tomorrow, the 10th of August, I am leaving for my Exchange Year in Sweden. I am so excited! And very nervous too. I packed my bag, it was very hard to choose! And I already have got one suitcase in Sweden with winter clothes! But I am going!

I won't post anything in the next few weeks, first I want to find my own place there and get used to everything.

Take care!
Love, Swaen

Nail of the day

Hi! Here is an other nail of the day. It is a colour I do not use a lot, but my favorite nailpolishes are in Sweden already. I bought this nailpolish once on a market, so it is not from a real brand.
The colour is kind of salmon-like. And I like it. The picture is not very clear, but the colour you can see in the bottle is very like the colour on my nails.
I like the colour, unfortunately I can't take it with me to Sweden. My mum made me choose my favorite 10. It was hard...

I have got a little question for you guys. What language would you prefer on my blog? Dutch or English. I noticed that most of the reactions are in Dutch, so does that mean that I could blog in Dutch again? Let me know! I made a poll, you can see it on the right here!

It was hot!

Now reading: Windflowers - Tamara McKinley

I got this book from my neighbor. She gave it to me so I could read it in the plain to Sweden. I already started, I couldn't wait. And I like the book a lot. In english it is called Windflowers, but I liked the dutch cover more. Tamara McKinley is an Australian writer, and almost all her books taking place in Australia.
