Shoes… every woman’s desire or just a pain in the butt? If you ask me? More a pain in the butt.
Why is it that every time you go to buy a pair of shoes the salesperson ask you what you want the shoes for?
– Are you looking for walking shoes?
I feel the need to be able to do more than walking in my shoes. What if a swarm of bees suddenly appears?!
Great, I have my walking shoes on… crap! I better stroll away from here in a moderate pace.
Jokes aside, it was easier before – when your footwear were just that – shoes! You could walk, run, jump and do what ever you pleased without having to change your footwear!
Just thinking – a proud moment in my brain this evening.
Sandals bought in Athens, Greece
And while speaking of shoes, the nicest sandals in my wardrobe are these cuties… unfortunately these shoes were not made for walking, they nearly killed my feet in Thailand. But they are sure nice to look at. And yes they are a matching pair even if they are different. I decided to bring them while in Thailand and it is not my proudest moment to confess that the first time I used them I was on a full day tour that involved a lot of walking around.
See the other footwear that I bought while in Athens, Greece here.
And in all honesty… I am not a shoe lover, I usually just wear sandals that are comfortable and I don’t pay to much attention to how they look. Most often that means buying sandals from Ecco. A Swedish company that does not make the most beautiful shoes but definatly one of the most comfortable once.
And during the Swedish winter? Uggs on my feet 😉
Anna and Elsa, Ariel and Sebastian, Peter Pan and Tingeling – those are just a couple of the characters you can see in this years Disney On Ice. Celebrating their 25th anniversary the Disney characters are still spinning strong on the ice.
The two hour show (including a 15 minute break) is exactly as the name states, different Disney characters dancing on ice.
We were lucky and got to see the show while they were preforming in Malmö, Sweden. There were six of us in different ages and we all enjoyed the show (in different degrees).
I LOVED IT. The costumes, the choreography, the fires, the bubbles, the “snow”, all of it got me sucked into the world of Disney. It felt like nothing was happening on the ice without a reason. In the show we saw, all the songs were in Swedish and to be honest I would much more prefer to see it in english. Since we always watch the Disney movies in english and not in Swedish I do think that it would have been even more powerful to hear Elsa (from Frost) sing Let It Go instead of “Slå Dig Fri”.
Natalie, my ten years old niece loved it as much as I did but her younger brother Oscar got bored and just wanted to eat popcorn (witch by the way were way overpriced = 90:-SEK for a bag of popcorn?!).
Mini thought it was ok, nothing more nothing less. He felt that the miming to songs from the actors was not that good and that it was a shame that it was not live singing. I do have to agree that most of the actors do just move their lips and can not the lyrics of the songs but at the same time it was a show in Swedish and I bet the actors come from all over the world and that they preform in several different languages.
My sister and husband liked the show and enjoyed them selves. We all agreed that the part from the movie Frost was the best. When it came to costumes my favorites were Pumba (from The Lionking) and the flamingos (from The little Mermaid).
Pumba and Timon from The Lion King
My favorite costume of all times – look at the legs!!!
The prices range from 205:-SEK to 425:-SEK per ticket. We were sitting in the front row at Malmö Arena and I liked our seats because we could see everything well and I got to se some of the details of the characters costumes. Sparkling Swarovski crystals and cool colors, all mixed in one magical show!
This is a show that I believe is made for kids but it even entertains adults. As I said before. I LOVED IT and sitting that close to the ice, I could feel the cold breeze during the performance of Frost – something that only enhanced the experience!
When Disney On Ice comes to your Country and to your town – check it out!

A Franz Kafka Statue – odd for sure and done by sculptor Jaroslav Rona.
Something in sign language – I am not sure what it says
You are not allowed drugs into one of the parks in Prague – hmmm were are they allowed?
Night Gym in Prague – is it a synonym for strip club?
Life is to short to spend it planning for the future. A lot of us keep planing for the future and forget about the present.
I do proud myself of trying to make everyday count and to do the stuff that “brings bling to everything” even if it is not the extravagant stuff or the expensive stuff.
It is often the simple stuff that makes everything a little “extra” – like putting eyes on the cheese while drinking wine with a good friend
On monday I go back to school for my last year (before I become a journalist) and even if I plan for the future after school I need to keep having fun while getting there.
This school year will be filled with laughs and fun stuff and I will do a lot of traveling in Sweden – I need to see my own country before I leave it (for however long).
Our plans have changed a bit but that is a whole other story. This post is a reminder to make every day count
Prague, this magical capital of Czech Republic is wonderful to stroll around in but be aware of the odd and funny things that the city hides. Here are some of the quirks we found while being in Prague
A “TV” sticking out of a wall with a pink face on it, not everyday you see that!
We walked into a movie shoot. Unfortunately we did not get any information of which movie they were shooting but it was some old- themed movie (from what we could tell from the clothes).
If you can not afford windows… why don’t you just paint them on? Honestly, if our guide had not showed us them we probably would walked by this building without seeing it.
The famous “love locks” are famous even in Prague and they are scattered across the city center. Some, more successful than others
Chips on a stick. Hmmm first time ever seeing that but they tasted like chips and we got a full amount of calories while eating one chips- stick each.
Ok, so we have all seen a vacuum cleaner before but this one was literary vacuuming the streets of Prague
