My birthday presents

Hello!

I just wanted to share my birthday presents with you guys!

My boyfriend got me a book that I had forgotten I wanted, a sign that say “Love you to the moon and back” – it’s kinda an inside-thing, but there is a story to it, he’s not just being cheesy 😉 He also gave me two nail polishes, a white and a purple glitter, but I didn’t like the purple so much because it had a clear base so I exchanged that for two other colours, a blue/green glitter on a blue base and also to a purple grape colour.

Last saturday when I had my friends over they got me 4 shower gels from Body Shop that I haven’t got a picture of because I started using it already and took it out of the box. They also got me the Harry Potter box on DVD. Since I already have the DVDs I was going to exchange them for the Blu-ray box, but then when I got there I all of a sudden wanted something else instead. I bought three DVDs instead.

My mother-in-law, her boyfriend and my brother-in-law gave me a necklace in the shape of a fly. Very pretty, I’ve been wearing it since I got it.

My dad gave me money because he found it easier – and then I can spend the money on something later on when I find something I desperately need but doesn’t have money for.

My mother gave me all sorts of things. She bought me a board game called Sequence and some clothes for fitness. The pants are SOOO comfortable and I’ve been wearing them ever since. I’m gonna have to put another pair on my wish list so I have a pair for everyday-wear and a pair for fitness. She got me a black cardigan which was very pretty, but itchy unfortunately, so I exchanged it for a very comfy, blue cardigan with white stars and three nail polishes. Lastly, she gave me a crackle-polish, but I’m not a big fan of the concept so I exchanged it for a nail strengthening polish.

Yes, I’ve been very busy exchanging it all already 😉

Here are some ‘swatches’ of the polishes on a piece of paper:

I’m going to do actual swatches on my nails later on for you to see 🙂

Thanks for reading – have a nice day!

Celebrating my birthday + Hunger Games: Mockingjay pt. 1

Today my high school friends are coming to visit me! The three of them all live in Aarhus whereas I live in Odense, and two of them haven’t seen where I live yet.

We have a standing agreement that each time a Hunger Games movie comes out, we will go and see it together, and this one is no exception! It premiered on november 19th and we were considering seeing it this weekend, but I was also considering celebrating my birthday (which is november 26th), so instead of meeting up in our hometown and watch the movie, they are coming to me! I am looking very much forward to it as I haven’t seen them for so long! I saw one of them before I went to Tunisia in week 42, but the others I haven’t seen since before the summer. I am so thrilled that they are willing to make the trip to come see me!

Have you seen the movie? What will you be doing this weekend?

Love, Nanna

No. 2: And Your Bird Can Sing (Anthology verison) – The Beatles

This song cracks me up! I first saw the Anthology series about 4 years ago and this song still makes me smile whenever it comes on.

As the people who know me know, I am a HUGE Beatles fan! So you’ll probably see a lot of Beatles songs on here :p

At first I didn’t think too much of the anthology songs – I like the originals more. Looking back I see what a big mistake it was to skip the anthology tracks! They reveal so much vulnerability and sincerity and it makes you feel like you’re closer to the guys.

Even if you don’t like the Beatles you should give this track a listen – I’m almost positively sure that it will at least bring a smile to you face.

Love, Nanna

The previous week

Boy, have I been busy!

Which also explains my silence on the blog. This previous week has been extra busy. Tuesday and thursday evening I was recording a couple of songs with my choir. We were asked to sing three songs for a christmas album – 1 on Tuesday and 2 on thursday. I was a super cool experience! The few of us, who have participated for over 10 years, have already once recorded a song for a CD, but it was so long ago and not nearly as cool as this!

Yesterday we received the audio files for the CD and it turned out to be pretty good! So now were planning our annual christmas concert – and we’re discussing making a CD of our own as well! We have some pretty unique christmas carols from all around the world which would be cool to perpetuate.

Thursday was also the day we visited the company we are going to write an exam about. It was the company I used to work for between the ages of 14-18. For 6 hours we walked around asking people questions and observing. It was tiring, but luckily we got what we came for!

Friday was Halloween and that means party! I didn’t really feel like it, but it ended up being fun – at least the pre-party part. As last time we had a small party at our apartment before we moved on to the original party. When do you learn to just stay at the pre-party? It seems they’re always much more fun. At the pre-party we laughed and talked and played games and at the big party we ended up looking for people we knew and just walking around. We got home pretty early, but my overall memory of the evening is having a nice time.

Now you might think, I am done

But not yet. Because I didn’t even have time to relax this weekend. Long ago it was planned that this weekend would be a choir weekend. We met up around noon and we sang and ate and talked for two days straight and it was so much fun! It always is! We also made a program for our christmas concert and tried to find a date were everybody could make it – bit of a task.

Having been this busy, I desperately needed to cool down and relax, so monday I decided to take the day off uni and just sleep and do relaxing things, which did me good. Yesterday I had much more energy.

And now today I have to write a paper – lucky me :/

Overall the week was very good – In the future I might try to separate the events over more than just one week, because in the end you barely have any energy left.

How was your week/weekend/Halloween?

Love, Nanna

TGYWF: Thank god yesterday was friday

Yesterday it was friday, and I had originally planned to post something to tell you what I was doing, but I ended up being waaay busier than expected. That is because yesterday there was Årsfest (annual party) at my university! We started out by being 5 people who held a pre-party at my place, where we ate pizza, the guys played a bit of Fifa 15 and we played some SingStar aswell!

Then around 10 pm we decided that it might be time to head out to the university – it had actually started at 7.30, but we were just having so much fun!

The party there was not as good as we had hoped though, and the drinks were pretty expensive – don’t know why I had expected anything else.. Well because we had had much more fun at home than at the party, we ended up actually leaving again less than an hour after we came. We went to Heidi’s Bier Bar and later on my boyfriend and I kept one of our friends company while he waited for his bus (the guys played Fifa, so I didn’t really do much 😉 )

I really wanted to show you pictures of my hair, as it and I for once saw eye to eye, but I completely forgot to take pictures of it 😦 I guess I’ll have to put it up like that again another time and then remember to perpetuate it.

My friday was really awesome, but then my saturday is lazy and I’ve pretty much stayed in bed all day and watched TV 🙂

Here is a picture of us (apart from the girl taking the photo) waiting for the bus to go to uni

Something that makes me happy

Later today I will be singing with my choir again after a very long break. I’ve been singing in this choir for.. well this year will be the 12th year, so we go waaay back. I’ve been signing there since I was 9 and some of the people from the beginning are still there. I absolutely love it! unfortunately, it is based in my birthplace, and after I moved away last summer to study, I haven’t been able to go quite as often as I would wish.

But today I have decided to take a ‘study’-day off of school and go sing because it is one of the things that make me happiest.

We’re already singing christmas songs as we’re getting to sing a couple of songs on a christmas CD which of course has to be ready for december.

Here we are at a spring concert (I’m the one all the way to the right) – aren’t they adorable?

I’m so excited!

I hope your day will be as nice as mine hopefully will.
