I did it. I bought new sneakers today and I’m in love. I know, I know. Pretty materialistic but I had done something really tough and challenging the day before (which I’ll probably will share with you in the next few days here!), so these shoes were a treat for myself.. Liz was busy at work when I texted her for advice/opinions/approval..so I contacted a couple of other good supporters (read: Liz’s cousin who’s a serious fashion girl and a good friend of mine with good style taste, I think). Thank you guys! FYI: Liz totally liked them once she saw my desperate texts. Although, I had already paid for them by then. Hehe. They are Nike, white tennis shoes/sneakers, called Wmns Son of Force and if interested, I bought mine at Stadium, but you can also find them at other places. Google them. Oh, well. Enough talk. Let’s check them out!

List from Sandra
Bought these some days ago and I’m in love! Credit to lensway for fast delivery! (wish I was sponsored, but I’m not..). I think we’re gonna have great sunny days together ♥
It’s been a pretty ok week with some challenges that have been good, but also have made me tired. However, it’s been totally worth it! But, it has its price and my energy level is pretty low, so Liz and I have decided, with consultation with my therapist, to cancel an event we were invited to today. I hate to cancel stuff, but sometimes, or all the time as of right now, I have to listen to my body and mind, when it’s telling me no. So instead of going to a big wedding party tonight, we’re staying home. I feel so bad about it, but also relieved since I truly don’t have the energy. Plus, we have major things coming up in just a few weeks with the celebrations of last of April here in Uppsala and the best, Liz’s cousin is coming here!! So excited about that!
So today, Liz and I are gonna take it easy, help a friend to do some shopping, watch movies at home, and just be. Exactly what I need.
Zola, our cat, is pretty damn good at taking care of herself, resting when she needs to, finding the sunny spots in life…such an inspiration, and something I should do too.
Hope you’re having a good weekend and try to take care of yourselves in the best possible way, promise me that ♥
I’ve been stuck lately with something called, Querkles. It’s simply a kind of coloring book based on circles you fill in, either in various shades of one color, different colors, or patterns. Each shade, color or pattern has its own number. So easy, and turns out pretty cool, I think. A tip for you who might be tired of regular coloring books. You’ll find it in a regular book store. Just a little Tuesday evening tip.
