What was meant to be a day spent at the salon to rejuvenate my very tired self turned out to be yet another day roaming around town. With a tiny dose of shopping. Nothing outrageous — bought three hats, four scarves, a 2012 desk agenda and a notebook. I’m done shopping. For now. Seriously.
I told my bf when he got home last night how I think I’ve reached new heights of paranoia because of my iPhone snatching incident and it’s bothering me. As you know, I’m the most careless AND carefree person in the world. When traveling around the metro by myself yesterday, I was so worried and paranoid something will happen to me. Every time I see a dodgy-looking man, I try to avoid being in his gaze. There was this one guy who looked at me really suspiciously my heart was pounding so hard during the train ride. I honestly thought he was waiting for me to get off the train at my next station so he can do bad things to me but thank god his station was a few stops before mine and he exited first.
I knew things have gone sour when I took out my camera’s memory card (where I have hundreds of photos) and put in my pocket — without even me realizing what I did. When I got home, I was like ‘oh wtf is my flash card doing in my pocket?’ It was at that point that I realized I took it out before entering the train to protect my photos just in case someone snatches my cumbersome Canon. What is happening to me? Taking public transport has never been so daunting. I wish I could take cabs all the time but they are SO expensive here. A five-minute ride would set you back a good forty American dollars. It’s that cray cray!

What I dislike about fashion month (aka New York, London, MIlan, Paris) is that feeling of come down once a season’s worth of shows are over. It feels like I’m on a fashion high for a month with all the shows, the running around, the meetings and appointments… and now that it’s all over, it’s like there’s this big, empty void inside, I’m almost at a loss on what to do next. Back to reality I suppose until next season?
Speaking of reality, as you know, my bf has a 9-5 job so I’m always by myself in the mornings and afternoons. I’ve been in his apartment since Saturday night and I thought I’d haul my ass out for the first time this week. And what did I do? Well, this lonely housewife went shopping! I didn’t have much time because I left late in the afternoon. I bought some new patent leather desert boots from Acne (thank you for the friends and family discount, I love friends and family discounts), two sweaters, yellow and gray, from COS, and another black top from COS. I also stopped by the Whyred store. They have this varsity jacket in a really gorgeous green colour. I’m gonna try to hit more shops over the next few days. A visit to Herr Judit is long overdue.
Oh, I met up with my friend Gustav after shopping. I wanted to print some documents because my bf doesn’t have a printer at home (I know, crazy right?) so he took me to the library aka Stockholms Stadsbibliotek. After that we went to Gamla Stan, had a few drinks and before you know it, it’s time to see my bf once again at this restaurant.
Oh, just so you know, I made myself a healthy brunch yesterday — sauteed mushrooms with a wee bit of teriyaki sauce, soft-boiled egg with caviar and baby spinach leaves with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and lots of parmesan cheese.
