Ugly Christmas Sweaters!

Obviously the only thing standing between me and eternal happiness is the fact that I don`t have a christmas sweater. And even though you`re right to detect a sense of sarcasm, I actually really do want a Christmas Sweater. So I am just spending my evening with the really noble purpose of finding myself a christmas sweater, and sharing my top “candidates” with you guys! (click on the image to get to the item`s salepage).

Let’s Get Baked Happy Gingerbread Tacky Christmas Sweater

Not a stoner, just feel like this sweater is weirdly cute and funny.

The Grinch!

Women's Straight Outta North Pole Sweater

Yes, my humor is terrible.

Women's Bah Humpug Sweater

Look at that, it got worse.

Women's Hooded Christmas Tunic

Women's Teddy Bear Sweater Dress

Yes, this is a dress, but it`s still cute!

Women's The Night Before™ Moose Sweater

 

Side note: It was so hard to find sweaters that were not just fucking “naughtly list” things like “santas favorite ho” and reindeers having sex (apparently the most favorite theme). Oh, well.

Are you into ugly christmas sweaters?

 

My 5 favorite Christmas Movies!

So far this year I have watched a lot of b- made for TV christmas movies. Which is fun. But it`s basically just a warm up for the real game. Which will include, but is definitely not limited to, these movies!

 

The Grinch

Relatert bilde

Probably the most heartwarming and childhood defining movie of all time! I can honestly say that I have never had more nightmares about anything than the Grinches creepy smile (at the age of four, chill), yet it never put me off the movie, so it`s obviously amazing.  If you haven`t seen this movie yet, then what are you waiting for? Leave this post right now and don`t come back until you have. Live your best life! Honestly though, the Grinch is based on the Dr.Seuss story/book “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and is narrated so. It is about a grinch who grew up in whoesville feeling like an outcast and left for the mountains, becoming an urban legend. He then returns when an adorable girl named “Cindy Lou Who” convinces him to come accept a reward from the mayor, his rival. After the stressing ceremony, he decides to ruin their Christmas by stealing all their presents and Christmas ornaments and trees with his trusty sidekick- his dog Max. If this isn’t enough to convince you: Cindy Lou Who is played by Taylor Momsen!

“The Smile”. Now gives me sort of creepy tinder guy selfie vibes tbh.

The Holiday

Love Actually is cool and all, but I am forever team “The Holiday”. There is just something about this “American-British” best of both worlds things that I really love. And the actors (Cameron Diaz, Judd Law, Kate Winslet and Jack Black) are all just so funny and amazing. I love how the whole movie is built on obvious contrasts and defining similarities. For those of you who haven`t seen it, it`s basically “Rich american with guy problems swaps houses with small town brit with guy problems, both are totally into local guy”. FTR: If you haven`t seen Love Actually, you really should chech that one out as well.

The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause

Obviously being  human and all I do love the whole “The Santa Clause”-trilogy and I do tend to marathon them every year, but this one is my absolute favorite. All of them are filled with holiday spirit and give me a glimpse of that Christmas joy I felt as a child since the movie is literally taking place on the North Pole. This one is the funniest because it has all of the classic legend characters (like Mother Nature and The Tooth Fairy), most importantly “Jack Frost” which is angry because he does not have his own holiday and tries to steal Christmas. With his sympatic and charismatic personality he sort of gives of the vibes of a Kim Possible villain. Basically, he`s hilarious.

A Diva`s Christmas Carol

I love this movie for many reasons. Partly because the main character portrayed by one of the coolest and most beautiful actors of all time, Vanessa Williams (AKA Wilhelmina Slater from Ugly Betty, AKA girl power personified). Also because this character is super relatable. Colored diva who only cares about money and success. I don`t want to say me but… *raises hand only partly with shame*. Basically this movie is a modern (well year 2000) remake of Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol”, but instead of a business man it`s a famous popstar.

Fred Clause

Vince Vaughn as the black bitter sheep of the Clause family? Yes, please. Beautiful, relatable, hilarious. Yes, Elf is super funny. But is it “Fred Clause” funny? No.

Anyways, here are a list of my favorite generic christmas movies. Closer to Christmas, when I write about my traditions, I`ll also include the movies we watch here in Norway on Christmas morning (which is the 24th for us).

What movies do you watch every year around christmas?

Hey, nice to meet ya!

I`ve been thinking lately about what makes me engaged in a blog or a youtube channel. And what I`ve realised is that next to pretty pictures (or faces) and great content, what weighs heaviest is the person it self. The vibes and the personality. So I figured that I should probably share a little more about myself on here, and while I`m not going to go in to the boring and dark coners that we all have some of in our lives, I thought I`d just share some light facts about myself, so here we go!

Well, those were a few fun (or perhaps not so fun) facts about me. Does any of this apply to you as well?

My day so far

As a write this, it is noon., in other words, the day just started. However, as I got up pretty early today, I feel like I`ve already got some stuff done.

So here is my day so far.

I got up at 03:30 am for some tea and a magazine.

I then got some writing and planning done.

After this I took an, um, *cough* #nojudge, cab, to the gym. The gym opens at 5 am, so I made sure to be there at that time, as I have to leave already at 5:50 to have time fo the 30 minute walk home before I get ready for school.

blog3

Yes, I did accidentally take pictures without my head. To my defence I have never taken a gym selfie before, and therefore felt a lot of pressure. Yup.

Saw this beautiful three on my way home. I was also going to take a picture of the view from the bridge, but I was listening to Beyonce, so you can see how I was not as focused as I should have been.

After my half hour walk, I got home, got dressed and had some nicecream for breakfast. Unforunately, my nicecream turned out super ugly, so I just could not take a picture. But I can disclose that it was cocoa and pb. I also hung out with my cat.

Later, I went to school where I got a few books for the summer.

Later I am probably going too either go shopping, go to the library or take a walk. Maybe all if I have time. What do you think I should do?

 

 

What have you done so far today, and what do you have planned for later?

Why I love kids movies

Okay, this post was not planned, at all. But I am currently watching the sequel of «Hotel Transylvania” and it is so funny. Honestly, I cannot imagine ever not finding children’s movies fun anymore. And here is why.

(this movie is AWESOME).

First of all, the most obvious reason is of course that they always end well. In other movies I am always aware that something horrible and sad is very likely to happen. And that does not mean that I do not enjoy the movie, but it is definitely more relaxing to watch a movie that is just “all fun and games”. I have to admit that I am a very stressed person in general, so when I watch a movie with a lot of suspense and hints that bad things will happen, I easily get very caught up in it and stressed. But come on, let’s be honest, we all love a happy ending. It is how we grow up after all.

Which brings me to the next point. Growing up is a necessary and fun adventure, but sometimes we need to forget everything about vacuuming, essays and bank accounts. What better way to do exactly that then watch a movie from way, way before all they liberating, yet exhausting  lessons of adulthood ever entered your life. Watching Shrek, 101 Dalmatians or Hercules is as fun know, as it was “back in the days”. Maybe even more so know that you get all the dirty jokes.

Don`t grow up, it`s a trap! (https://www.flickr.com/photos/newtown_grafitti/8889644775 Legally downloaded from Flickr via Google).

 

This is partly what the third point is built around. Most movies for children are made in this genius way when it comes to humor. Everything is said with such enthusiasm that you just have to laugh at even the stupid jokes. Other than that, the movies are designed to not majorly bore parents and, ahem, older siblings, so they also have a lot of jokes that the children will not understand, but that are funny for the elder. Is it wrong of my to laugh a little too much at Hades slightly sexualized comments like “What we need is curves” (followed by demonstrating hand motions) and “Looks like I just revealed the fore-play”. Okay, it might just be my bad humor, but in general, the principle just stands.

(Love the god, love the character. Legally extracted from this youtube video via google).

As you might know, Hades is made a very interesting and funny character in the Hercules Disney movie. You might also know that movies like this, much like the books for the same age group, are often filled with extremely odd and inevitably hilarious characters. The characters are often so strange that it is not realistic at all. Yet, as I previously mentioned, the enthusiasm and the humor level is so high that it feels believable and often the weirdest characters are our favorites. After all we are the “me” “you” generation. A movie experience is just not complete without establishing which odd character resembles your friend most and which resembles you. Then you have to say “omg, that is totally you” after basically everything the character does. Because, let’s be honest, we are all in reality just weird characters who have our own catch phrases and make horrible, yet hilarious, decisions on a daily basis.

 

That is why I love children’s movies!

If you are brave enough to admit that you watch these types of movies, and we all know that you do, comment which movie is your favorite and who “you” are!

Mother’s Day Gift Ordered!

I am very thankful for every vote; however, the results were very mixed. Therefore, I decided to take a different approach. Well, actually, I was going to order the Louboutin stuff, which one by a few percent, when I realized that it did not directly ship here, which means that I would have to send it to my father in Rochester and get him to ship it to me. In short, time, time and more time. So like I said, I decided to take a different approach. I just ordered a small package of different items instead. I hope that she will like them. Even if she does not, she will say that she does. That is what mothers do.  Okay, with that overly true joke over with, here is what I got her.

The “main” item is this New Look purse in faux snake skin. I really love the look of snake skin, but the look of death, not so much. This purse model is called Libby. I am not sure why, but I kind of like it. It is sort of adorable.

You can get it here!

Furthermore,  just for the gift not to be too boring, I also bought her some jewelry.

I really lucked out on this bracelet, it being the last left. But if they restock, you can find it here 🙂

Lastly, I bought her this necklace that I feel like will really compliment her green eyes 🙂 You can get it here!

So, what do you think? Was the gift acceptable, or should I cancel the order? Like, legit, I think I still have time.

Appreciate all feedback!
