The highlights of my 2017

A goal I have set for 2018 is to blog more, and not just random ramblings but coherent pre-planned posts about with pictures that are relevant. I'm holding out hope for me being able to publish two posts per week at least, and starting 2018 right is some of the highlights of my past year.

I started my year with my laptop completely shutting down the night before I had my shoot for my graduation project, having a complete meltdown and then figuring my shit out. The shoot went great and we had so much fun during the full day. My editorial got published on Odalisque Magazine's website after I graduated in May.

I then had to take some additional photos for the project before we graduated and I took some of Emilia Westerström and took some photos for her blog as well. Later during the year I took photos for her header and profile on her blog.


I traveled out of the country twice this year, to England and Dublin, in April and September respectively. England was fully packed of musicals and laughing until my stomach hurt with friends I miss so much when I don't see them. I was in Cheltenham for a couple of days and then took the train with Helen to London, everything is always so magical when I go to the UK - like my soul comes alive in a different way than it is in Sweden.

Dublin was a birthday trip because Helen turned 25 and that needed to be celebrated with just the two of us. We just walked around Dublin and enjoyed each other's company, the most relaxing few days of 2017 I had.

Of course two highlights of 2017 were my dogs, as they are highlights of every year. My two tiny fluffballs whom I love more than life. Lina and Lucky.

My big brother turned 25 this year as well and we celebrated accordingly. I am so proud of all his accomplishments and all that he is. I couldn't wish for a better big brother. My family is kind of crazy, and a little fucked up. But what family isn't?

It is completely alright if family isn't something that is important in your life, family doesn't have to be important - no matter what anyone tells you. 


Friends are important, they're the family you choose. I have some really great ones in the UK, and a few ones in Sweden as well. So here's to all the amazing people who I spent time with in 2017.


I went through a few cuts and colours this year; started the year with a dark blue lob and finished with a shaved head. I'm completely in love with every single look I've had this year, here's to a colourful shaved head in 2018. My brows got a lot better throughout the year as well.

I graduated this year. Two year university education, I have a degree in commercial and editorial photography. Biggest achievement of my life, I'm so proud of myself for doing this. Side note: started my own business this year as well. 

And finally, 2017 is the year I started Bullet Journaling. Bought my first journal in July and it has been fantastic to figure out my own rhythm and style for it. I got two Leuchtturm1917 dotted journals for Christmas so continuing this in 2018.

I figured out I love drawing and actually developed some kind of drawing style as well, still under development though. Let's hope 2018 is full of creativeness.

That was some highlights of my past year, it wasn't the best year but it sure did beat 2016.

How did 2017 treat you? Any big things planned for 2018?

Until next time. x

What happened there?

Remember when I said I was gonna blog more? Haha yeah me either. Life kinda really got in the way; I've worked basically full time for the entirety of November and December so far. Last week is my my final work week of 2017 though, and then I get to enjoy a two week holiday because my hobbit gets here on the 26th! We've got a few solid plans already, repainting and redecorating my room, at least two cinema visits, fixing up her website and chilling in our pyjamas doing nothing. 

I'm currently binging Criminal Minds (I'm on season 10) and i'm about to start wrapping some gifts because tis' the season. Christmas is but two weeks away and I'm basically done shopping, only got a few bits and bobs left but I'll sort that this weekend.


If you follow me on social media then you know that I buzzed all my hair off, and I can honestly tell you that I've never felt more beautiful. I'm gonna try my damnedest to blog more. At least in 2018.

Until next time. x

Self doubt: my biggest inner demon

I would imagine that most people have inner demons.

Thoughts they battle with and maybe don't really share with others. My biggest inner demon is my self doubt. I doubt my drawing and photography abilities, my relationships and just myself in general really. It's not every day but occasionally it rears it's ugly head and it's important to know in those moments that it's okay so feel bad as long as it's only for a moment and not a lifetime.

I recently had a few breakdowns about my photography ability specifically and I compared myself to people in a bad way. I put myself down because I'm not at the level that they are on and I almost let my self doubt win, but then I had a very good talk with my best friend and they told me to go through all of my past shoots and write down what I don't like about them. So I did. I got two or three things in common I want to improve on that were consistent in a lot of the results so I have decided to do just that. Improve; and for me to be able to improve I need ro practice, practice, practice. And that's really all to it, I need to put myself out there more to get better.

I will not let my inner demons win, I am good at what I do and I will beat my self doubt and come out victorious.

You can beat your demons too, I believe in you.
