Get to know me – TAG

Guys, after starting up the blog again I figured I haven’t really shared anything about me. I feel like this time I’m not going to be private about myself, but I’d like to tell you about who I am at least. Let’s do this!

Are you named after anyone? Haha, this is actually a fun story. My parents had such a hard time finding names for both me and my brother. How they decided to name me Alicia was because they were so late and had gotten so many reminders by mail that they had postponed a few times. Then they saw a woman in the newspaper who had gotten a baby and named her Alicia. One of them just said ”What about Alicia” and the other one answered ”Yeah, that’ll go”, mostly because they were tired of themselves not finding a name. Sooo.. my name wasn’t really a wellchosen decision haha!

When was the last time you cried? Oh, I don’t cry often at all, but the last time was one night when I had a really tough pain in my stomach. I’ve had that pain since February this year and the doctors doesn’t find anything so that night I got really scared and hyperventilated because of my fear of dying this young.

Do you have kids? No, way too young for that hahaha

If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? Tricky question, but no, I really don’t believe I’d like to be my own friend. I don’t think anyone would’ve. Or maybe? My first thought is no, but maybe?

Do you use sarcasm a lot? A bit, yeah

What’s the first thing you notice about people? Probably their aura. I notice more of their mood rather than their look. Just to know how to act and get to know the person.

What is your eye color? Blue

Scary movie or happy endings? Happy endings, no doubt.

Favorite smells? On myself – YSL Black Opium or Jimmy Choo EdP. Around me – the smell of cake in the oven..

What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home? Another country I guess? I’ve not been outside Europe though, so Southern Spain?

Do you have any special talents? I know some people appreciate my singing, but apart from that I enjoy my sense of getting the vibe in a room before I’m entering it.

Where were you born? Here in Stockholm

What are your hobbies? I really love blogging, you know all of the photo- and postediting is so fun!! Apart from that I’d say working, working out and doing a lot of dinner outs and the Swedish fika.

Do you have any pets? My baby dog Zac <3 (push HERE for his Instagram)

Do you have any siblings? A younger brother

What do you want to be when you grow up? Something within PR I would say. Where and how I get there is a smaller issue.

Who was your first best friend? I’d say Marvin and Arvid from kindergarden. Unfortunately I have no contact with one of them and the other one I hear from just a few times a year.

How tall are you? 175 cm

Funniest moment throughout School? I think 9th grade during science classes. Even though I sucked at it I enjoyed the group and had fun.

How many countries have you visited? I actually have no idea, but something I do know is that my family loved and loves Spain so our family-vacays has probably gone to Spain most times.

What was your favorite/worst subject in High School? High school, is that like gymnasium in Sweden? If so, my favorite was science and the worst was actually English. I didn’t find it interesting for one bit, but I liked the teacher himself. He was a kind and an understanding person.

What is your Favorite drink? Animal? Perfume? Irish coffee or blueberry mojito right now, dogs and the Jimmy Choo one I named earlier.

What would you (or have you) name your children? I’ve always liked Philip and Josephine, but nowadays I like Mauritz, Douglas, Valentine, Belle, Lovis and Lykke. Don’t steal them! 🙂

What Sports do you play/Have you played? Soccer was my thing

Who are some of your favorite YouTubers? Therese Lindgren, Nikki Glamour, Channon Rose and Jeffrey Star I think.

How many boyfriends have you had? A few boyfriends but I don’t really count how many were serious or not.

Favorite memory from childhood? The problem is that I don’t know which of my memories I’ve seen on pictures or which are live memories, but I do know that I miss the times from when my grandpa still were alive. We and grandma always went out for playing and such stuff, and he always brought a Festis (swedes knows) and a clementine. It’s just something that’s stuck in my brain. Miss him very much even though he passed away when I was 5 and that’s 14 years ago.

How would you describe your fashion sense? The best and also the worst. I like my clothing but sometimes I get really stuck in patterns that I have a hard time trying new stuff because of.

What phone do you have? (iOS v Android?) iPhone of course?

Tell us one of your bad habits! Ouuuuhh… I’m a very lazy person at home. I wish I was more productive, but at this point I haven’t vacuumed my room in a few months.. Yes I know… On the other hand though I keep it really clean when I’m working, and the ”work-me” is NOTHING compared to the person I’m at home. It’s like two different persons.

Now though, I’m actually going to vacuum my room and then go to the gym. Tata!

All glittery on New Years eve

// TOP & SKIRT – NA-KD / COAT – ZARA / BAG – MIU MIU / SHOES – ? //

This fall I was an intern at NA-KD. At that time I got 40% off of NA-KD’s clothes, so I truly took my chance and ordered some great stuff back then. This glittery set is one of my favorite clothing, both as a pair but also with the top and a pair of jeans, or the skirt to another cute top. If you want to buy it yourself you can do it HERE FOR TOP and HERE FOR SKIRT. Love.

This set is actually a great tip for a New Years-outfit! I think it’s hard to find the right outfit for New Years every year, but this actually really works and still looks classy, in my opinion!

I’ve been stressing myself out over some thinking this last week. I feel like pieces are falling to place now though, so it’s great to finally breathe out and take it easy for a quick moment without that thinking. It’s been quite rocky these last weeks in general, but to feel that it’s finally okay and that I don’t barely care anymore is the best. I’m happy to find myself in a new kind of everyday and that it’s actually okay. Happy to tell you that. <3

A tragedy

// I’ve been listening to the music, to the riffs, to his voice through ”The Wind Cries Mary”, ”Hey Joe” and ”All Along The Watchtower” since I was a child. Even when I didn’t want to listen my father played his songs and jammed his songs on his own guitars in the living room while I at last fell asleep in my bedroom. Jimi has been a part of my life since I was born, but it’s not until now I know the real story.

Of course I’ve known the cause of his death, the joining of 27 club and a bit of his history, but while reading through the internet, through Wikipedia and whilst googling quotes and interviews, I feel a deep anxiety. I’m having hard to breathe and I feel such pain for Hendrix. I know he lived his life just as he wanted to, but still I feel sick to my stomach from listening to the music, truly understanding him. I guess.

27 club in general scares me. Deep inside I have a fear of dying the year I turn 27, even though I know I don’t have and will never have drug problems or any issue that will cause my early death. Still, I feel stressed about the whole 27 club-thing. It’s depressing how such fantastic artists as Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain. I can’t help myself from wondering what would’ve come next if it wasn’t for their death. The fantastic music that would’ve kept being released. Most of them died because of drugs and alcohol. It’s a tragedy what stress, accomplishment-anxiety and the drugs do to people who could’ve had longer lives with love, families and great music.

It’s a total tragedy. //
