tankar om bloggen och en liten nystart.

hej hörrni.

känns ovant och lite läskigt att skriva här igen på svenska, men efter lite funderande och kännande har jag kommit fram till att det är så det måste bli?

jag har ju haft den här bloggen i nästan tio år, och bloggade på svenska länge länge, tills när jag hade bott i usa i ungefär 1,5 år, och folk här började bli nyfikna på bloggen och ville att jag skulle blogga på engelska. så det började jag med (för nästan exakt två år sedan nu).

jag kände från början att det var läskigt — inte på grund av språket, jag bor och jobbar ju som skribent på engelska här i usa — men för er skull!  vet ju att det nästan bara är svenskar som läser, och framför allt uteslutande ni från sverige som kommenterar.

sedan jag bytte från svenska till engelska kände jag att jag förlorade både min ton av det som varit vickys punkt se-bloggtonen, och många läsare — och det är förståeligt, för även om man är *bra* på engelska är det är en extra ansträngning att läsa på ett andraspråk.

det kändes så ledsamt, lite ångestfyllt och lite ensamt — speciellt eftersom bloggvärlden här i usa inte alls är likadan som den i sverige, och verkligen ingenting som den bloggbubblan jag lever i (som bara består av svenska bloggar).

så jag tänker att jag börjar om här lite.
inga massiva nya förändringar utseende- eller innehållsmässigt, men bara ett försök att gå tillbaka till mina bloggrötter och till att blogga på svenska.

i “vår” (min?) bloggbubbla vet jag att det är viktigt att allt ska vara fint och perfekt för det mesta, men ibland blir det inte det, och så känns det nu. jag provade att blogga på engelska i två år, men det känns inte helt rätt. så då är det bara att göra om.

hoppas ni som hängt med på sistone hänger kvar, och kanske att någon som fallit bort kommer tillbaka. kanske kan ni som läser det här tipsa eller säga till någon som kanske läst tidigare eller kanske aldrig läst innan att “se:t” i vickys.se är tillbaka? är liksom nervös igen att det inte kommer bli bra nu heller, men så är det väl med en nervös katastrofhjärna som min.

ser fram emot att visa er alla fina bilder jag tagit i new york nu i dagarna och hitta tillbaka till mitt bloggspråk som det var. ser fram emot ännu fler år här inne och ännu fler samtal med ER.

tack för att ni läser. ♥

after blogging in english for the past two years, i feel like i need to go back to swedish. it’s where i started and where this blog belongs. i will keep writing english translations at the bottom of the post like this one.

i hope you understand and will stay here.

love. ♥

colorful weekend.

hello tuesday babies.

it’s been a festive weekend. i didn’t celebrate midsummer, as many of you did, and what i maybe should’ve done as a swede (…). instead, i spent the weekend celebrating pride in dolores dressed up in my cheerleader outfit with siri, her classmates, and confetti all over my legs. we danced, drank rosé, and i cried a little bit over all the pride love that was ALL OVER our rainbow city.

on saturday night i kept on partying with my colleagues until late night, and then accidentally slept through the pride parade on sunday morning. whoops. had late lunch in the city with siri instead, and then saw the movie beatriz at dinner (with salma hayek about cringey white people, heh).

weekend was intense, but also colorful and intense and great. i was really tired yesterday morning as i was heading back to work, but managed to get up and also finish a writing project that i have been working on for the past couple of weeks! i need to have it rest with me for a bit, but maybe i can share it with you in some form later.

this week i’m focusing on work, working out, and doing necessary boring real life stuff before i take off for new york on friday.

have a great day, wherever you are. <3

 

hade en så fin och färgglad pridehelg! hängde i dolores på lördag i ett hav av regnbågar och konfetti, festade vidare ända till halv tre på morgonen, sov igenom paraden på söndag, men såg beatriz at dinner på bio istället.

igår blev jag klar med ett skrivprojekt jag jobbat på senaste veckorna, och de närmaste dagarna ska jag bara fixa och dona inför min new york-tripp på fredag! puss.

100% human.

hi my loves! first of all — thank you for all your greetings and congratulations on my visa, through blog comments, facebook messages, texts, phone calls, and irl. it means the world! <3333

another thing that has made me happy is the human rights campaign that everlane has right now, coinciding with pride (sf pride is this very weekend). they have for example painted a rainbowy mural here in sf, as you might have seen on my instagram. but everlane, if you don’t already know them, is a clothing company — so they have a collection for this campaign too.

everlane.

yesterday, this brown package showed up at my door.

everlane.

with the 100% human t-shirt + pin!! pretty as hell, but also doing good (for every sold piece, they donate to the human rights campaign. important ok? <3)

now i’m ready for the pride weekend. happy thursday, humans! <3

 

hallå kompisar! TACK för alla grattisrop angående mitt visum! det betyder så himlans mycket.
här e förresten min nya fina 100% human-tröja från fina everlane! passar fint nu till helgen då det är pride här i stan, och dessutom donerar dom till human rights campaign. både snyggt och godhjärtat. det gillar vi.

happy news.

hi friends! today, i have post for you with some things that makes me happy right now (read all the way to the end for the happiest thing!). hope it finds you well:

♥ great music.

me and siri went to this concert a while ago with yung bae and flint eastwood. i hadn’t herd either of them before, but it turned out to be the best concert in a long time. we danced and even cried because it was so good. and — got to meet both of them afterwards. check them out if you’re into hiphop/funk sample vibes or angry indie pop.

 

♥ great movies.

had the chance to go see the movie about tupac, all eyez on me, this past sunday. i loved it!! even if you’re not into his music, i highly recommend it because it’s largely about politics and racism too.

 

♥ colleagues.

spent both friday and saturday hanging out with some of my splendid colleagues that i usually don’t hang out with that much — except for sandra, all the way to the right, who btw moved back to portland on sunday after 3 months here in sf with us. kinda sad about that.

 

♥ pride.

twin peaks.

sf pride is this upcoming weekend! i’ll be marching in the parade, partying, and hanging out in the sun. here and here are the posts from last year’s pride!

 

♥ new york.

new york.

i was literally just in new york 3 weeks ago as you might remember, but — yep, you guessed it — i’m going back again end of next week for the 4th of july weekend. can never get enough of new york? miss that place every damn day.

 

♥ visa.

last day in san francisco.

i made it!! i got my visa that i’ve been waiting to hear back about! for at least three more years, i can hang around dolores park, pet the sf dogs, or roam the new york avenues. I’M SO HAPPY!!

 

grejer som gör mig glad just nu:
♥ bra musik, som när jag och siri var på fantastiska spelningen med yung bae och flint eastwood. 
♥ filmen om tupac som jag såg i söndags. vill gråta på hur fin han e
♥ mina gulliga kollegor. speciellt fina sandra som dessvärre flyttade tillbaka till portland efter tre månader i sf.
♥ att det är pride i helgen. ska fira i solen!
♥ new york! var där tre veckor sedan men måste bara dit igen nu på fourth of july??? yolo.
♥ HAR FÅTT VISUM!!!! tack livet!

roses and neons.

let’s look at some clothes! new ones, even.

outfits.

here’s an outfit i wore a week or so ago when me and jens were out walking and looking at that crazy jungle house from the last post. i love my new crop top with roses! it’s from romwe (this online store that has super pretty and cheap stuff, but it took me pretty long to receive my stuff, and also one item was missing FYI).

outfits.

the skirt is from american apparel, and i bought it back in january in new york. american apparel is closing, as you might have noticed? so everything was like 40% + 40% off.

outfits.

also, i have new workout shoes! nike lunar epic low flyknit 2.

outfits.

look at those ultra-fast soles. zoom zoom.

outfits.

in neon-y pink and blue. love em! great upgrade after having worked out in these nike frees for like 2.5 years?!

outfits.

the best kind of investment.

 

lite nytt i klädväg på sistone: min nya crop top med rosor (älskaren!) från romwe som jag bar tillsammans med en mörkblå plisserad kjol från aa (ej superny men ändå). och så splitternya träningsskor! asså finally, efter 2,5 år med samma. bra uppgradering!

the most fascinating façade in san francisco.

animals.

a week or so ago, i was out walking with jens. you remember him, right? an important friend of mine who lives in sf over the summer to work at apple with me. perfect!

animals.

we strolled from the mission up to hayes valley, where we saw this little cutie. corgos!! one of my top dog breeds.

animals.

later, we went to dolores park to hang out on the grass and were met by this friend. such a beautiful cat! like a cheetah, but must be a bengal i guess. (although cheetah baby would be funner)

animals.

from dolores park, we kept on going south to noe valley, because both of us wanted to take a closer look at a house that the both of us had only seen through a train or cab window. must be THE most fascinating house, like, ever??? jungle.

animals.

there is the cheetah though. all over the house, different animals are painted, together with waterfalls and heavy vegetation.

animals.

and — THIS is what it looks like at the top. isn’t that just wonderfully insane? san francisco sure has a looooot of crazy façades, but i believe this must take the prize, right? I LOVE IT. also, this makes me think abut that one time i saw a swedish article about a man who had to paint over his house because it was TOO CRAZY (spoiler alert: it was a gradient from like orange to yellow. insert eyeroll here)

and on that note, let’s look at me in front of a few other cute murals lately:

this one, that robert took of me in lower east side when i was in nyc 2 weeks ago.

this happy jumping one, from noe valley with jens.

and this rainbowy one that dinesh took of me this past weekend!

that’s all from this week’s episode of san francisco mural stories. <3

 

så mycket glada grejer i dagens inlägg! en corgi, en bengal i dolores park, och så FINASTE DJUNGELHUSET. visst äre sjukt?? plus tre fina glada färgglada väggmålningar. om det är något som lyser upp min vardag så är det fan just det. glad tisdag!!

new insta-hobby.

(i’ve noticed some issues with this post — if you can’t see the play buttons under/on the thumbnails, just refresh the page or if you’re on a phone, try on desktop)

lipsync

so, this is what i’ve been doing on my instagram stories lately:

lipsyncing!

lipsync

to 90s pop and rnb songs, or gangsta rap.

lipsync

i’ve been doing a few every week.

lipsync

and i’ve gotten some positive feedback about it, so i might do some more : D

lipsync

so keep an eye out on my stories on instagram if you wanna see’em, i’d say!

 

mitt senaste tramspåhitt. mima till gamla hiphop- och rnb-låtar på mina instastories. håll utkik där om ni vill se fler, lägger väl ut några per vecka kanske (tills låtarna slash lusten tar slut, antar jag). tack för era glada tillrop ang detta förresten, hehe

flamingos and puppies.

my weekend was SO sunny. it was fantastic. on saturday, i dressed up in white shorts and a crop top and hung out with richie. we tried out media noche, the new cuban place in the mission. it was yummy, and they have a beautiful flamingo mural painted by fnnch.

after me and richie said goodbye towards the afternoon i still hadn’t had enough of walking in the sun, so i took a little mini hike up to bernal heights, the hill that’s super close to my house. since it’s close it doesn’t take to long to climb, but you still get this gorgeous view of sf. especially in the golden light of the sunset!

on sunday THIS happened!!!! i went on a hike with some coworkers around san bruno, and THESE THREE showed up! corgis and shibas are some of my favorite dogs so i was beyond thrilled. the one to the very left, simba, was only 8 months and REFUSED to walk after we’ve been walking for over an hour in the sun and had to be carried. i CRIED. basically.

HI from me and nacho!!!! hope u guys had an as amazing weekend <3333

 

en minirapport från helgen! hängde med richie på lördagen, vi testade nya kubanska stället media noche och jag poserade vid deras fina väggmålning. sen knatade jag ensam upp till fina bernal heights på kvällen. på söndagen drog jag på hike MED DESSA. asså två corgis och en shiba. drömmen or what?!?!
hoppas ni haft en fin helg med. puss!

portraits of me!

hi birdies! hope you’re having an awesome sunday. i’m out hiking today (writing this on saturday night but that’s the plan at least). it’s super nice and sunny in the bay area right now.
lately, i’ve gotten a few different types of portraits of me. wanna see?

first one is this fantastic colorful portrait of me by my internet fren deniz! it’s inspired by this photo of me from hawaii. love it!!

also, my friend selena took some pictures of me at a photo event a few weeks ago. here are a few that turned out well:

do you like them? i really do! it was time for some new ones for like facebook, linkedin and the blog. the old ones with yellow background are super pretty, but almost 2 years old. this feels more accurate. also very appropriate in my favorite outfit!

 

porträtt jag fått på sistone! ett superdrömmigt målat av min *internetkompis* deniz. fin va?? och så några porträttbilder av min duktiga vän selena. vad tycker ni?
gla söndag vettja!

pasta, chocolate, and a thirteen year-old.

happy thursday friends! let me show you some weekend hangout with friends lately:

hangout with richie and aryan.

first was with my fantastic friend richie who i hadn’t seen in a pretty long time, since he’d been in LA for a while. but now he was back, and he had his little cousin aryan visiting!

hangout with richie and aryan.

we walked around the mission and did some café hangouts, tried on shoes, and checked out vintage clothes.

hangout with richie and aryan.

then i took us to dolores park for a bit of course! no weekend is complete without some hanging out in dolores park. for me, at least. this is what i looked like! it was warm enough to be dressed like this. in h&m tank top and the vintage style tennis skirt from the fila x urban outfitters collab.

hangout with richie and aryan.

cool boyz.

hangout with richie and aryan.

we walked from the park to the castro, where it’s always colorful and rainbowy. we stopped by at an ice cream shop before we hugged each other goodbye.

hangout with patty.

another weekend hangout lately was with patty. she hit me up for lunch which was perfect, because i had just come from the gym and needed to eat.

hangout with patty.

we went to barzotto, an italian place close to my house where i’ve been wanting to go for a while. the pasta was great! al dente af. plus points for very instagrammable table.

hangout with patty.

we walked slowly through the mission, checking out some stores, and then ending up here, at dandelion chocolate, for some dessert hehe. dandelion is a super small chocolate factory in the middle of the mission. so nice.

hangout with patty.

patty ordered their cold hot chocolate (hehe), and i the house hot chocolate. aaaaaand then i was full for the rest of the day :))))

friends + food + sun + san francisco = some of my favorite things in life <3333

 

två häng på sistone! först med fina richie och hans lilla kusin aryan som var på besök. vi provade skor, kollade vintagekläder och hängde i dolores och castro.
sen ett lunchhäng med patty, vi käkade supergod at dente pasta på barzotto, prommade genom mission och drack chokladdessert på lilla chokladfabriken dandelion.

NICE VA.
