Sunday Summary

Phew, time goes by so fast these days, it's kinda hard to keep track on things that happened this week.
Well anyway, last week's Sunday Summary was very late - as in two days late - but since then I took some time off on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to recover from an amazing weekend in Sweden with Maria  and to get ready for school.

And yes, school started Thursday. It was actually a little weird, because normally I'm always a little jittery before school starts, but this year I was very calm and a-ok... Which was awesome!
I got up Thursday morning, took my sweet time to take a shower, put on makeup, eat some breakfast and so on. The I drove off to the school, where my very first class this year was Danish.
My classmates seem alright; there's already a couple of people I feel I can talk to - so that's great! However my teacher is absolutely fantastic! She's so amazing; just the perfect combination of funny, witty and stern.
I also had a Danish class on Friday as well - at 8 o'clock in the morning - phew, that one was hard to gear up for, but luckily it wasn't bad at all, and at 12 o'clock my weekend started.

And well, this weekend has just been exactly like a weekend should be; walking around in wollen socks, no pants on and endless cups of coffee. And I've been Skyping with Kasper a whole lot, plus I've watched a lot of great movies. Unfortunately today I got up way too late, and actually that's the reason this Sunday Summary is a little short. I promise to make it better next week - but for now, I have what seems like endless amounts of homework, already stacking up...

... so I guess I'd better get to it.
You all have a fantastic Sunday,
and I'll see you when I see you

Sunday Summary - Tuesday Edition

Welliti welliti welliti, things sure hasn't been running as smoothly here at f&f - not like they used to. But ah, what's a girl to do when there are soooo many other things to focus on?
Well, it might be Tuesday, but my brain can't let the thought of last weeks Sunday Summary go, so here it is - yes, on a Tuesday...

... There actually isn't much to tell about most of last week. Monday Maria came by in the evening, so that we could plan our upcoming trip to Sweden. And the finally, after waiting for months and months and months, we finally drove for the bridge which connects Denmark and Sweden.
Maria came by at around 9 in the morning Friday, and after a quick ciggy we drove off. It was such a fun - but long and hot - trip, but we managed to pass the time with lively discussions of politics, talks about Disney movies, laughs and endless bottles of water and cans of Coca Cola. We were in Växjö at around 1, and then we took a long stroll around town. It's been a while since I've been in Växjö Centrum, but ah how lovely it was. There was some kind of festival of sorts, so the streets were filled with happy, smiling people, street artists, children with balloons and girls with loads of shopping bags. Soon Maria and I were two of those girls; Maria shopped some clothes, and I spent my "Sweden Savings" in Lagerhaus; a big shop with loads of different things for the home - wups, haha!
Then we were on our way to do a little grocery shopping, and then finally we drove to the country house in the woods. After unpacking, I gave Maria the grand tour, and luckily she fell in love with the surroundings at once. The rest of Friday was spent outside in the sunny garden with coffee and ciggys, and then late in the evening we went inside and watched a Disney movie and totally pigged out, haha!

Saturday we got up at around 9, and then the day just went fast from there on out. The hours just flew by; coffee and Netflix were involved, and of course, many many hours were spent outside in the garden. It was just such a nice day, but the best thing about it was the happy and relaxed look on Maria's face all weekend. It was just so nice to see that she had a lovely time.
In the evening, when it got too chilly to sit outside, we went inside and watched a couple of movies before we crashed.

And finally Sunday. Such a shame we didn't have more time in the Swedish paradise, but we had a nice couple of days. We took our time with breakfast and then, little by little, we started doing all of the chores such as vacuuming the floors and all that jazz. We were on our way home at around 2, and then just a quick stop to get gas and groceries in Växjö, and then we were really on our way home. But it was a fun trip; we played 20 Questions with a Disney theme, had a few ciggy breaks and in general just had such a fun time listening to Maria's daughter's "Åh Abe" CD.
We were back in Roskilde at around 6, and then I just spent the evening unpacking and listening to The Hunger Games audio book.

Whether your day is rainy or sunny,
I hope it's lovely

H&M discount codes for August

It really has been a while since I've brought you some discount codes, and when I look at the stats for f&f, I can see that those posts are the most read. So let's just get to it, shall we?

Let's start with the one that gives you 5 off your purchase. I've been told it should work in all countries, with the note that the fiver is dollars, pounds, euros or what have you. As always, this code is long standing, and it has worked for me for about 2 or 3 years now.
The code is: 1304

The second code gives you a 10% discount plus free delivery, and it works on the entire range.
The code is: 0428

The third code gives you 25% off the highest prices item in your basket, with the minimum spend of £8 - or what ever your currency is.
The code is: 0241

The fourth code also gives you a 25% discount on one item in your basket, and it'll work with the 1304 code.
The code is: 0560

The last "code" - or rather tip - I have for you today gives you 25% off one item of your choice, but this code unfortunately only works once, and that is when you sign up for H&M's Newsletter.
However, here's a little tip for you: If you're really short of cash and just can't wait to purchase that absolutely "one-thing-that-would-make-me-happy" item, you can cheat a bit here. Just create a new email account on another email site - like Yahoo, Gmail and what have you - and voilà, you get your discount.

[Remember: You can only use two codes at the time on one purchase, so if you have a big order, it might be worth considering making your purchase into multiple orders]

Happy shopping!

Sunday Summary

This week has been kinda quiet - both in real life as well as here on the blog.
Nothing special has happened all week; I've been trying to alterate my "Summer vacation sleeping pattern", but that hasn't been going quite as well as I'd hoped. I start school again in two weeks time, and it would be rather nice not to walk around like a zombie because of my messed-up sleeping patterns - did anyone say First World problems, haha?
However, I do have hopes. I don't particularly want to start school again - in a way, this break has been both too long and too short at the same time. But in my hearts of hearts, I do kinda look forward to get back to a normal day, a normal rhythm and in general, just the normal day-to-day life that comes with school.

BUT! I still have a little of break left, and this week I've enjoyed it by sleeping late, watching TV, drinking gallons of coffee, reading good books and stuff like that. However, the absolute high-point of this week had to be Friday, where Kasper and I finally had our Horror Night.
We've been talking about it for over 6 months now, but we finally found the time Friday. Kasper came by at around 6 o'clock, and then we did a quick stop at the store, where we bought chips, candy, milkshakes and frozen pizzas - we went all out on the whole gluttony thing, haha. Then we went back to the flat, waited for the sun to set and started watching horror movies. Although, the word "watching" may be a little much; we had so much fun doing Vines and in general just laughing it up.
[The app "Vine" is a video app, where you can record short 6 second videos and upload them for the world to see. If you wanna find me, just search for "Natalie Madeleine" and I should appear]
The clock kept ticking, as it always does, and little by little we became more and more tired - and at around 5 o'clock we were so tired, that the whole thing seemed like a weird trip, haha. But we had loads of fun, and when Kasper went home at around 7.30 in the morning, it didn't take me long to just crash...

... and well, that was actually Saturday morning. I didn't want to sleep all day, but when I woke up again at around 11.30, I was so confused and messed up, that I crashed again a couple of hours later. Friday I woke up at 7, and when I went to bed again, it was Saturday and 7.30 o'clock. I'm not really all that good at staying up for that many hours - I know; I am really the epiphany of youth these days, haha - so it actually took me all of Saturday to get my head attached to my body again.

But today I'm fine. I got up at 10, ate breakfast and watched a couple of episodes of Buffy. My plans for today ain't heavy; I'm just gonna relax and take it easy. I'm saving my energy for the coming weekend, cause this Friday, Maria and I are having a girls weekend - actually, a mini vacation. We're borrowing the Swedish country house, and it's just gonna be a whole weekend of girly fun; shopping, sunbathing in the garden, movies and glasses of white wine (as always; none for me). I can't wait; we're going to have so much fun. But just as a side note: next weeks Sunday Summary might not be uploaded till Monday - we're driving back home on Sunday evening.

You all have the most wonderful and sunny Sunday,
and hopefully we'll see each other this forthcoming week.
Bye bye, and don't forget to smile

Kasper and I took this picture Friday evening 
- the ice creams were delicious; it was soooo hot out
