Let’s talk relationships

Posted in Thoughts
Let’s talk relationships and shit. While it’s not really my topic I feel like I have a lot to say about it, for better or for worse. I can’t say I know much, I don’t have much experience on either relationships or dating but I’m not clueless. Unfortunately I’ve only had two relationships but the first doesn’t really count and my second one was really just a book written by an author with anxiety and depression that left me not wanting to deal with guys for while. But that has past and I know what I like, don’t like and what to compromise. I know that dating someone I’ve hardly talked to is making me anxious because while I appreciate the effort the thought of spending time on something/someone that could turn into nothing/no one sucks the fun out of it. I’ve seen a few guys briefly but either they just wanted me to put out when I didn’t want to or I just didn’t vibe with them. I totally get I most likely need to go on dates but they don’t have to be the text book kinds. I’m fine with grabbing an afternoon coffee or an evening drink. It doesn’t have to be more complicated than that. Simple is good, it takes the pressure off. Dining can come later when you know you’re comfortable with each other. I’m not into going to clubs and getting rubbed on by strangers who just want to hump anything with a vagina and tinder never worked for me anyway. People tell me that I’m young and that I should have fun but their idea of fun is not for me. I just wish I could skip the whole sexually frustrating dating scene and go straight to ordering takeaway on Saturdays and sleeping late on Sundays. I want to be able to watch a movie while eating snacks and not being worried to get a perverted look 15 minutes in. Don’t get me wrong, I think sex is important in a relationship, I just don’t want to feel like it’s forced upon me. I’ve already had the taste of that and I didn’t like it. I don’t expect to meet the man I’m gonna spend my future with at this age but it doesn’t mean I don’t want to have quality dates and relationships till that time comes. But if I do meet my soulmate early on it’s not like I’m gonna fight it. What can I say, I’m the relationship kind. I can only focus on one man at the time which makes me a little anxious because from my experience a man can talk to several girls at a time while I’m his plan B. Is it really so that a man with roughly the same ideas as me just doesn’t exist or hasn’t he emerged from the ashes of fuckboys yet? But yeah, I want to meet someone and have fun with him. It doesn’t have to be long lasting, it can be a summer fling. I just want to have a great time with a great dude who enjoys my company as much as I enjoy his for as long as it lasts. Wouldn’t complain if I end up with someone in the near future I want to introduce to my family though. Let’s see where my boat floats next!

Under Dubairesan åt vi en fantastisk middag på Yuan, en award winning restaurang i Atlantis the Palm. Det var längesen jag åt så god mat. Det var ingen försvenskad kyckling med cashewnötter där inte! Frågan är om jag någonsin kommer kunna njuta av kinamaten vi har hemma igen? Deras hummer var helt fantastisk! Atmosfären var underbar och servicen var mer än vad jag kunde be om. Vi kom till restaurangen vid 20.00 och stannade till midnatt, minst, för vi hade det så trevligt. Får du chansen att äta här så ta den utan att blinka, beställ pan fried lobster (tror det stod så i menyn) och plommon martini, du kommer inte bli besviken!
During the Dubai trop we had an amazing dinner at Yuan, an award winning restaurang in Atlantis the Palm. It was a long time ago I ate food that good. It was no white washed cashew chicken, I tell you that! The question is if I’ll ever be able to enjoy the chinese food at home again? Their lobster was amazing! The atmosphere was amazing and the service more than I could ask for. We arrived to the restaurant around 8 pm and stayed till midnight, at least, because we had such a great time. If you get the chance to eat there you should take it without a blink, order pan fried lobster (I think it said that on the menu) and plum martini, you will not be disappointed!

I tried to get more action pictures but the ride was sooooo bumpy that it was so hard to get clear and good pictures. It was the funniest and craziest car ride I’ve ever had tho!

VEGGIE BURGER

Posted in Food & Health

VEGGIE 2
It’s always nice to enjoy a tasty veggie burger every once in a while regardless if you’re a vegetarian or not. Veggie burgers, or patties, is a bit of a favorite food of mine because they’re versatile and you can have it not only as burgers, but in wraps, sallads, pasta dishes, etc. Mix and match the spices and veggies as you like and you have a patty for any occasion. Anyways, in this picture obviously see a veggie burger I made the other day that I thought I might as well share the recipe I used for these in particular. I did go a lot on feeling but I remember what I put in pretty well! This can be made vegan, just use egg substitute and vegan bread + cheese if you want a ”classic burger”.

OBS! The amount/size of your vegetables can make the spices milder so start with adding the spices according to the recipe then taste and see if you want to add more. I ended up adding more at the end to get the spicy burn haha. If you ain’t sweating, it ain’t spicy! Am I right?

BURGERS/PATTIES
2 beetroots
2 carrots
1 onion
1 garlic clove
2 celeri stalks
2 eggs
1 can chickpeas
2 tablespoons olive oil
0,5 teaspoon salt
0,5 teaspoon black pepper
0,5 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon sambal oelek
1 tablespoon corn starch

TOPPINGS
Toasted burger buns
Jeezy Original (vegan cheese)
Romaine lettuce
Tomatoe
Tsatsiki
Red onion
Avocado
Cucumber
Red bell pepper

DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 220℃ (425 ℉). Dice the onion. Grate the carrots and beetroots with a greater or food processor. Put chopped garlic and celery in a food processor and blend finely then add the chickpeas and give it a quick blend. You still want the chickpeas to be chunky. Heat 1 – 2 tablespoons on medium heat in a pan and fry the diced onion, grated carrots, grated beetroots until soft. Put the garlic/celery/chickpea mix and fried carrots/beetroots/onion mix into a big bowl. Add all the spices (salt, black pepper, cayenne, cumin, turmeric, coriander, sambal oelek), corn starch, eggs and blend it until it’s a all mixed together evenly. Save the eggs till last if you wanna taste and see if you want to add more spices and add them when you’re satisfied. Form the mixture into patties in the size of your choice, they won’t change much in size when cooking, brush them with the remaining olive oil and pop them into the oven for 15-20 minutes (or more if necessary).

BODY POSITIVE

Posted in Food & Health

Foto 2016-04-04 16 27 00Welcome to my kitchen. We have bananis and avocadis (referens från Vine). Här är jag och är mindre klädd än vad jag brukar. Har aldrig riktigt varit den lättklädda, inte för att jag tycker det är fel att vara den. Tvärtom, man kan nästan säga att jag ser upp till folk som obrytt ”klär av sig”. Det är inte på äldre dagar som jag faktiskt börjar bli bekväm med att visa min kropp, om man kan säga så. Jag har väll varit som de flesta tjejer, obekväm i sin kropp för att man inte sett ut som samhället förväntats av en. Dock var det längesen jag lät mig påverkas av det. Men det kanske är fel att säga att jag är helt oberörd, jag tror inte någon är helt immun mot ”kroppsmodet” oavsett hur man är byggd, jag har bara lärt mig att skita i skitsnacket och behaga mig själv. Kroppsmode är så jävla löjligt. Kläder, för all del, sluta aldrig förändras. Men kroppar?? Du ska ha ditten men inte datten trots denne kombination nästan är omöjlig att nå om du inte redan är född sån vilket yttets få är. Det är så jävla dumt. Det ska fan räcka att vara som man är och så ska folk hålla käft om dom har något dumt att säga helt enkelt. Sluta hylla en kroppstyp och sedan använda en annan som källord. Va smal, tränad, stor, mittemellan, ja vad fan vet jag. Inget är rätt, inget är fel. Vill du träna och äta nyttigt så gör det för all del. Vill du inte träna och äta nyttigt så går det lika bra. Vill du kombinera, please do. Det är din kropp, dina val och om du mår bra och är nöjd då ska helt enkelt alla andra vara nöjda också och fokusera på sig själva. Allvarligt, det är inte så jävla svårt.
Welcome to my kitchen. We have bananis and avocadis (reference from Vine). Here am I with less clothes on that I usually have. I’ve never really been the lightly dressed, not that I think it’s wrong to be that kind. On the contrary, one can kinda say I look up to people who carelessly ”undresses”. It’s not until older days I actually started to get comfortable with showing my body. I’ve been like most girls, uncomfortable in my own body because I didn’t look like society expected me to. It was a long time ago I let myself be affected by it. But maybe it’s wrong to say I’m totally unaffected, I don’t think anyone is totally immune to ”the body fashion” regardless of how you’re build, I’ve just learned how to not care about the bullshit and please myself. Body fashion is so damn stupid. Clothes, please, never change. But bodies?? You must have this but not that although this combination is almost impossible to achieve unless you’re born with it which only a selected few are. It’s so dumb. It should be enough to be as you are and people just simply just shut the fuck up if they have anything negative to say. Stop praising one body type and then use another type as a term of abuse. Be skinny, fit, big, something in between, the fuck do I know. Nothing is right, nothing is wrong. If you want to exercise and eat healthily, then do that. If you don’t want to exercise and eat healthy, then that’s okay too. If you want to combine, please do. Your body, your choice and if you feel good and is happy then other people simply should be happy and focus on themselves. Seriously, it’s not so fucking hard.

EYES ON FIRE

Posted in Photography

eyesonfire1eyesonfire2En sömnlös natt följt av några överambitiösa selfies och ett låttips om man gillar melankoliska låtar (Blue Foundation – Eyes On Fire). Jag behöver väll egentligen göra allt för att hålla mig vaken idag för att inte förstöra en redan rubbad dagsrytm. Har inte vart i mitt bästa tillstånd det senaste, har dock hittat komfort i gymmet så schysst kropp får jag utav det iallafall haha. Sömnlösa nätter lämnar en ensam med trassliga tankar att reda ut så att lätta på hjärtat ligger ju i bakhuvudet. Det är ju inte så illa att jag vill dö direkt så ett blogginlägg som visar mig mänsklig kommer ju inte förstöra mig. Ingen mår ju som sol och regnbågar jämt vadfan, då är det något fel på en på riktigt. Men en sådant inlägg får vänta tills senare!
A sleepless night followed by some over ambitious selfies and a tune tip if you like melancholy songs (Blue Foundation – Eyes On Fire). I need to do anything to stay awake today to not ruin an already deranged circadian rhythm. I haven’t been at my best state lately, I have found comfort at the gym though so at least I’ll get a hot bod out of it at least haha. Sleepless nights leave you alone with tangled thoughts to straighten out so get some weight off of my shoulders lays in the back of my head. It’s not so bad I want to die so a blog post to show myself human won’t ruin me haha. Nobody is feeling like suns and rainbows all the time wtf, then they’re something wrong with you for real. But a post like that gets to wait for later!
