Coffe break at university

Regarding my last post. I hope you didn't think Im ridiculous, I only relate to myself. I have aged these last years visibly (and on the inside) and I have wrinkles that force me to change how I do my makeup. Make up can infact make you look much older if you do it wrong.

I made a post about old buildings in Falun a few weeks ago. This time I would like to show you our newest.  We got a new library at the University.  I'm usually not fond of modern things and I think the building is hideous on the outside, a yellow box wrapped in a steel fence. But the inside is wonderful. The main hall is built like a swirl down to the center bottom, all the shelves/walls,  floors and stairs turns in a downward spiral. White walls and ceiling windows make it so light it almost hurt the eyes (Swedes are very fond of white interiors). It was nice to sit by the bookshelves and having a coffee and an easter cupcake.


We will stay at home this weekend and I will take care of my seedlings and the garden. What are you up to this weekend? I Wishing you all a nice easter.

  1. What a gorgeous library!!! So airy and light -- a perfect place to study. Good grief, I could get a lot done there.

    mmmmmm ... cupcakes!

  2. I'm not generally that fond of new architecture myself, but that staircase is pretty cool!

    It's funny how a person can go years and not feel like their exterior has changed all that much, then all of a sudden - wham! That's been my last year ... so much grey hair now, knees and elbows that truly look like they belong to an 'old lady' etc. etc. So you do have to take stock from time to time, and figure out what makeup and clothes are going to work for your current stage of life. Kinda fun, really ... it gives us an opportunity to reinvent ourselves! :)

    1. Good point of view!! :). My depression last year made me age tremendously.

    2. This is so true! It happened to me recently. I woke up one day and realized my hair was greying, the skin on my arms was flapping around, my face was shriveled up like a prune... yikes! Now I'm rethinking my style and trying to take better care of myself.

  3. Puh, jag använde min livliga fantasi och såg en hemsk sminkning på en gammal tant. Nä, där har du så rätt så. Sminkar man fel kan det se fruktansvärt ut. xD

    Den där kakan vill jag ha, speciellt om det är marsipan! Skicka i brev. Nu! :P

  4. That DOES look nice! Too many libraries are dark and dingy, I like your new one much better.

    Do they actually LET you eat in the libraries there??? Here they kick us out if they catch us with food or drinks inside!

    1. I know, right?!? I was going to say, if I got caught with food and drink in the library they'd kick me out.

    2. Well I asked the lady at the cafe area and she said that I could sit werever I liked. I saw people with lunch boxes at the tables. Maybe we are so well mannered that we all know that smear and crumbles in a book is not a pleasant reading experience and separate reading and eating.

  5. I'm not a big fan of anything modern as well, but the inside looks beautiful and well organised. ^-^

    Now, about the last post. I can understand you, at least in some level , i can relate to your thoughts. Due to my anxiety, my body came up with various (visible and not) problems and even my dermatologist said after having hormonal exams that "i get stressed too much". So i have huge problem with black cycles (for years now) and in about the last months, vivid winkles suddenly appeared under my eyes, making me look tiered. Not to mention my super dry skin that causes that awful -i-change-skin-like-a-snake situation. I used to have clean skin (even as a teen i never had acne problem) and now i am trying so much to keep it stable. I do not like the changes i see in the mirror to be honest. But it is something that we forgot with all the "perfection" society show us. That all those changes are natural and if we understand that, we will see their beauty eventually. Not an easy task though and if you dont like something about it change it. Find a effective eye cream and take care of yourself more. I know it sounds selfish when you have a family and many things to take care, but don't forget yourself ok? You deserve - not to say a day - couple hours least on Sunday to pamper yourself. <3

    1. I have also very dry skin and didn't have any pimples at my teens. I do really need to think more about myself than I do. I always put the family first.

    2. It is amazing that you put your family first but having some hours for yourself, doesn't make you a bad mom. Stay strong (in and out) as much possible so you will be able to take care yourself and others. Pamper yourself whenever you can and you will see difference <3

  6. Greetings beautiful,

    I guess i understand that need, after all, make up should be an enhacement to the skin, not a mask, so yes, make up should change, due to the way we feel like doing it.

    I am not found of modern structures, but i guess i understand the need of a clean space for a new library nowadays, although i always feel that libraries should be as they always were, a refuge, that one does not make me want to stay, is like telling me, "take your books and leave". Dunno if you get what I am saying, maybe i am being a bit library snobe :P

    Hope you are fine,
    Best Regards
