35 Secrets of Succes for a woman (Ru Edt.)

1. Forget about shortcomings.  More often think about your advantages. This is the first and foremost commandment.

 2. Stay home less. Around there are a lot of interesting things! 
3. Learn to listen. Respect other people's opinions. Do not impose you own. 
4. Smell like yourself. Find "your" perfume, because smells associated with people :) 
5. Do not be afraid to change. Develop, move forward. Try. Look for yourself. 
6. Stock some candy. All ads assert that fresh breath facilitates understanding. And so it is! 
7. Mind your steps. No need to constantly look down, slouch and hurry.
8. Read more. An interesting person is more appealing to communicate with.
9. Eat. With appetite and beautifully. The word "diet" is annoying. 
10. Your specialty dish. Learn to cook at least one dish and indulge your close ones. Even if it is just an ordinary apple pie :) 
11. Do not raise your voice. Control yourself. Violent and scandalous nature repels. 
12. Give gifts. Small and even home-made. Just like that. Because you're in a good mood :) 
13. Do not emphasis your smart. Annoying when people wishing to demonstrate their intelligence all the time, quotes sprinkled through a phrase. 
14. Do not tug. Do not push around the crumbs on the table, do not fold napkins, do not poke the backs of the book. Such gestures are terrible. 
15. Smile. Let everyone know that you're happy (a) :) 
16. Talk less about yourself. Let others ask you . 
17. Look sharp. More interesting to speak to someone who has eye contact. 
18. Remember about Chew. Do not be afraid to laugh at themselves. This is evidence of your sense of humor. 
19. Remember birthdays. This is a very important thing. Make a list and in time to congratulate them.
 20. Serenity. No need to think about how to look the part. Relax and enjoy. 
21. Do not be jealous. Rejoice that you have.
22. Stylization. Withstanding individual style of dress. Not to merge with the crowd, but do not look silly. Remember the golden middle - rule. 
23. Do not talk. To do is better. Trust deeds, not words. Words are empty. 
24. Be a friend. Can not talk bad about you dear people. Appreciate them. 
25. Love yourself and your body.
26. Courtesy. Try to always politely answer a call, even if the wrong number. Politeness adorns. 
27. Appreciate the time. Do not waste it on nonsense. Spend on good use. 
28. Do not humiliate people. You have no right to it. 
29. Do not speak ill of the ex. 
30. Do not lie. This will prevent many embarrassing situations. 
31. Do not drink much alcohol. 
32. Learn the basic rules of etiquette. And use in place place. 
33. Not be scared of difficulties. The tests make us stronger. 
34. Do not try to please everyone. You are not a coin for everyone to like you.. 
35. Be yourself.

The Midsummer Weekend in Stockholm

Midsummer this year fell on a Friday (22nd of June), randomly booking tickets for Friday (to have a prolonged weekend) saved my unknowing ass, as I am used to this festivity to take place on a Saturday. Pheeew.

At Skavsta Airport, with almost no sleep the night before I started to text my best friend Sergey so that he could meet me in town to take me to my appartment (already filled with booze since the Systembolaget - a liquer monopoly store was closed on this all important boozing day to keep crazy alcoholics from overdosing). I changed fast and rushed to the Vitabergsparken, typing in my numbers into Sergeys phone and making quick "Sorry, I'm late" calls as I was running from store to store looking for Potatissallad (potato sallad).

When we finally arrived we danced around the May pole with Denise and her dog Howl, sang some songs and took pictures with the phallic symbol which is the May pole. Finally met Alice, Valle and the rest and started to drink beer and eat all that Midsommer traditional foods like HERRING. I love it.

As we were sitting there enjoying the sun and the alcohol, Marre and Steph (Bob Zemuch) came and the vodka start flowing. I asked everyone to join for Vaxholm to continue the party there so the best Midsummer celebraters gathered and we went to take the boat. Dissapointed at the rest, as they would miss out on great fun (and they did).

The expereince on the boat was amazing to say the least, wonderful sunny weather and beautiful views of the Archipelago, loads out boating and a great atmosphere overall. Was delighthed that Anna Safronova joined making a true effort, waiting for a nanny to arrive to stay with her sun, she really went out of her way to meet us ! Everyone was enjoying the trip and we sat down in Vaxholm and ate and drank and played with the dog.

Later everyone was very tired and most decided to go and rest, but I and Anna decided to join Julia and Natasha at her friend Misha's in Gåshaga brygga. We had a wonderful evening there with relaxing drinks and a beautiful sea view with a magic sky line. Music was absolutely lounge, and chillaxing was on the agenda.

 Great finish to a wonderfully memorable Midsummer Eve in Stockholm, 2012. Yeeeey we rocked it thanks to all amazing people I am happy to call my friends. Thanks all !  x x

Wannabe JarahJessicaParker.

Went to shop for a few things to the big Boots in Westfield Stratford today. Filled with 'ångest' (a Swedish word for what English cannot express - anxiety with small twist of frustration) after today's university day which was very long but clarifying for my otherwise pretty floating brain. Also excitement of being immensely productive which I love. So there I was in Boots, walking through the make-up section checking out what was new and looking at different colors of Dior, YSL, Lancome, Chanel, the summer shades and lip-glosses shiny and sparkly. I was carried away. Then turning around, walking away from the shelves looking at different sections, I found myself in front of Clinique and their perfume stand. There it was - the orange coloured bottle. My eyes directly drawn to it. Happy. I took it in my hands, removed the silver top and , well I already knew the smell. Took a deep breath and closed my eyes. The bottle was empty, but the fragrance was still strong. Well for a small second at least, I felt reassured again. This smell for me meant security for a long time and today that is exactly what I needed, security and reassurance.

Faith does play these little tricks on us, setting us up in places and situation exactly when we need them, sometimes unknowingly. Then in retrospect we discover that pushing it away would not have been the solution. Sometimes you just have to accept what is given to you by the timeline. Ususally it is exactly what you need.

And this is what we all want, to remember, to feel, to love, to understand and to write about it sometimes. Just like Sarah Jessica Parkers character in that famous series on HBO. A whole freaking column. Today we can pretend it in a blog.


Love love love
