    Wednesday, December 7th 2016

    Hi! Today I went second hand shopping with my dad, and then we got coffee at McDonald’s, you know, the usual. I did actually try to take a photo of the coffee, in classic Almond fashion, but I think I was shaking too much, so it did not work out as planned. Instead I have some pictures I had on my camera, the first two are already on my Instagram, and the later are the first official photo of my little Christmas tree. It’s really cute and it was at a very good price, too. I’ve had it for a few weeks already, and I have to admit that I…

    Sunday, 16th of October 2016 // The Blanket Cape

    Hi there, pals! I posted a photo on Instagram the other week about a new project I was starting, which was making a cape coat out of a blanket and some fabric. I ended up using another fabric than I intended, because the other one didn’t work out, but I’m very happy with the end result. It has three functional buttons at the top, for closing the cape – obviously – and two decorative buttons under the arm holes to cover up and/or distract from the seams there. I also used a faux fur collar that was originally on another coat I owned, but didn’t use, since I did not…

    Monday, 10th of October 2016

    Hi, friends! Today is Monday, which means it was time for my weekly grocery shopping with my dad, but before he arrived I played around some with my camera, and took some outfit photos. I realized last week that I can use my phone as a remote control for my camera by taking the photos through the Nikon WMU app on my phone. I did already know about that tool, since I’ve had my camera and the app for over a year, but it didn’t really click that I could do that. I’ve experimented a lot more with both photos and editing recently, trying to figure out some different things…

    Monday, September 12th 2016 // Some New Things…

    A mini-purse bag charm.   A almond scented, natural body lotion. A coconut scented hairspray. Crazy Color hairdye in Peacock Blue and Candy Floss. Hi there, my dudes! Today I went out to buy some new hairspray and hairdye in town. I bought my normal Summer Coconut Sensation from Lyko, which I love. Then I went over to Glitter to buy hairdye, when I noticed that they had 75% off everything, because they’re closing, which I’m super sad about, because they are one of my favourite shops, but I’m glad I could get some (a lot of) money off. I was just planning on buying the shade Candy Floss, since I’m gonna dye my undercut pink, but since everything was on…

    Emma’s 19th Birthday

    My birthday dinner. My birthday dessert. My birthday face. Hi there, pals! This past Sunday, on July 10th, it was my 19th birthday. I actually started this blog around my 15th birthday, so that’s quite a while. Maybe not for some people, but you can see basically all my hairstyle and just general style changes on here. On Friday I got one of my presents, which was a new sewing machine from my dad and uncle. My old one had been acting up and I actually lost a part that same day, so my dad decided it was time for an upgrade. It’s been used by a school before, so…

    Emma’s Outfit Adventures 5.0 – And The Rain, It Came Too Soon

    This is me when I realized I was out of frame and had to run in front of the camera before the shutter went off. Hey there my dudes, my buddies, my pals… Today I got out of bed at 2 pm, as per usual. I really do need to get better at not sleeping until The Normals™ go to bed. Okay that’s a bit of an exaggeration, I highly doubt that normal people go to bed at 2 pm. I also don’t stay up that late, I’m usually trying to sleep at around 2 am, which I know is pretty late but that’s still not an excuse for me to…

    Almond Talks About Sparkly Things

    Today I posted a little haul video, showing you some beauty items I bought at H&M yesterday. H&M in-store actually carries quite a lot of makeup and beauty brands, that are a little harder to get a hold of in Sweden, especially in store. Quite recently the store in my town has started to carry Sleek products, which I have never seen in person before, though some Swedish online shops sells them as well. They also carry House of Lashes, and last week I bought their eyelash glue, since I can’t find a good one and I always end up using the ones that comes with the lashes, which are…

    Nordens Ark – Class Trip 1.0

    My friends at lunch. Me at lunch. A very flattering, 100 % serious selfie I took at lunch. I was doing a peace sign, which has been my go-to pose since I was 12. It’s not a serious pose anymore, though. Thank god. Some flowers that I found somewhere, I’m pretty sure they where standing outside the hotel. A Maned Wolf. An Amur Leopard. A couple of weeks ago my class and I went on a trip to a place in Sweden called Nordens Ark, which is roughly translated to The Nordic Ark, which for us, the visitors I mean, a kind of zoo, but they are also a foundation that gives endangered…

    Emma’s Life Adventures 3.0

      Hi there! Here are some more pictures from the past couple of weeks, I do, as usual, not remember much from these days, only the two middle pictures. Those are from a day when my dad and I went and had a look around town and I bought a new brand of hair dye, it’s called Crazy Colors and I tried the shade Peacock Blue, which was a nice colour, though I had to dilute it a lot with conditioner, though I should’ve used more, because it still ended up really dark. I would show you a picture, but I have actually dyed my hair again after this, because I found that…

    Emma’s Sewing Adventures 1.0 – The Blue Dress

    Hey there Earthlings! Today I am here with a post about my latest sewing adventure, which was this blue dress (I’m going to make a little info page about my different “Adventures” series). It is made from a solid blue fabric I bought at Ikea this past summer, and I wasn’t sure what to do with it until December, which is when I initially started working on it. I started cutting out the pieces for the top, and I started sewing them together, but then I had some troubles with my sewing machine, that are now fixed, and I put the project away for a while until a few weeks…
