Shopping with the guys

My husband and brother have been very eager for the release of Apple Watch here in Sweden and yesterday after work we went to the Apple Store in Täby. Turned out that it was necessary to reserve an appointment in order to try the watch so they had no luck yesterday. My brother managed to get a time right at opening of the shopping mall today instead. So, today I went shopping with the guys… 

First off, of course, the Apple Store… We were not alone waiting for them to open 😉 

  

 Next, Hugo Boss…

And, when shopping with the guys a visit to the car shop was necessary…  

I have to admit I did take a quick visit in the Sephora store while the guys went towards one of the other stores. I’m not complaining though, most often I think they are bored with me because of all the stores I want to visit. Lucky for them my joints did not cooperate with me today so I was not up for a “true” shopping mall visit.

When a was sick with a cold around a week ago I was doing some major app cleaning on my iPad. I deleted some I didn’t use and organized others. I still can’t find everything I want (thankfully it’s possible to search though!) but I’m sure I get used to it eventually.

One of the apps I do like is Night Sky 2. Obviously I couldn’t remove that one! With it I can see the stars, planets, satellites etc around our world and it follows my movement through the different directions. I can even see down south although that is not possible in real life. 🙂

The app offered an in-app purchase called “the santa tracker”. It was only 7 SEK (~1 US dollar) and I thought it sounded pretty neat–yeah I’ve heard Santa supposedly don’t exist! ;)– so I bought it. Shortly I will be able to follow his adventure around the world. Right now he’s working hard in the North Pole though! 🙂

Weekend of “C’s”

The Invisible Illness Awareness week is now over. I’ve found several new blogs during the past week which is great. I’ve also gotten a few new readers. Thank you for liking and following my blog! 🙂

Two fun things happened this past weekend!

Saturday I bought a new Computer! I’m finally the proud owner of a MacBook Air–I’ve had a MacBook Pro the past years. My new computer is light and easy to carry. Not to mention how light it feels when I have it in my lap. Now I can do my blogging from my chair in the living room instead of sitting in the home office. 🙂

There is always something special with unpacking a new computer. Kinda similar to writing in a new calendar the first day of a new year I guess. A new computer… clean from all possible junk and I can start fresh. Well, I have a bunch of pictures and other files that needs to be transferred still but I’ll get to do all that eventually. I have told myself to get this computer better organized as far as my photos and documents go. :/ Let’s see how that works…

I’m considering buying a “one to one” year membership. You can purchase a full year membership when you buy a new computer for 900 SEK ($99). I’ve had different types of Mac’s for the past 8 years or so and I’ve learned a lot on my own but I’m thinking a little expertise help is always good. In particular when it comes to photo handling. I need something better than just saving my files in a regular folders. It’s tedious to go through when I’m looking for something… I want to use iPhoto or Aperture but haven’t really figured out which one yet.

Sunday it was time for a new Cupcake class. This was my second class and the theme was love. One thing we learned was to make a rose from sugar paste. That was tricky! We made a huge rose and I’m planning to practice in order to be able to make smaller versions which won’t look too big on a cupcake. 🙂 Practice makes perfect!

As in my last class we got four cupcakes to decorate. Except the rose we also made hearts and some other flowers as well as two types of “cupcake lids”.
