Hello! I finally finished editing some clips from my time in Japan last year.
Places I visited: Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Hakone, and Chichibu. Was filming with a Sony a580 and a Sigma 50mm macro lens, handheld. Edited in Premiere Pro, with Lumetri Looks color grading, and Twixtor Pro for slow motion.

Hello! So, I haven’t been posting much here lately. It’s because I’ve had to change my blog database again. So now I have a free WordPress blog instead. And I can’t customise it in the same way as before, so you might have noticed some small changes here. But despite a new URL (you can still type rikku.se, it will redirect here) and some changes in the layout, the blog is still alive!
And well, for those of you following my Instagram or Twitter, you know what I’ve been up to, but here is a quick picture recap so far.
I also finally got myself a new phone (iPhone 5s!) and I’m so happy with the image quality.
It’s brutal. Showing all the flaws. But luckily the LINE camera app can fix that
Hello! Ahh speaking of “A Song of Ice and Fire“, I can’t wait for the next book to be released. Or the next season of Game of Thrones… Can it be spring already? I’ve had enough of this winter. But anyway, I got this crazy idea that I would take some photos of my 2013 New Year’s dress… outside. In the snow. It was a bad idea. But my boyfriend helped me to take some decent pictures in the end. I still haven’t made the dress smaller though, so I need to wear a belt with it to keep it from falling down. But I’ll try to fix that sometime.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful time, and let’s hope this year is a good one. As I wrote earlier I got myself a new dress for New Year’s Eve, and although I didn’t take any proper pictures I managed to snap some with my phone. So I just thought I’d share them now. My last look of the year 2013 ~
I tried to go for a sort of “Hollywood”-inspired, but still natural look ~
And my hair is so short now so I can’t really do much about it except either have it in a straight bob, or put it up like this. So I went for the latter ^^
And I was very delighted to find this floor length dress at Gina Tricot. It was available in black as well, but I think this color was more suited for New Year’s. But because I’m so short, even the smallest size was still a bit long for me (although I was wearing my highest heels >_>) so I had to wear a belt to pull it up a bit. But I’m going to try to shorten it a bit now that I have time for it ^^
Well then, that was all for the year of 2013. I hope 2014 will be an exciting one!

Hello. Today is New Year’s Eve! and I actually managed to find a dress. Will try to remember to take pictures. We’re having a small get-together at our place tonight, and then we’ll see what happens. But as I was saying, it’s strangely warm weather this year for Sweden. To show you what I mean I thought I’d post some pictures my boyfriend help me take earlier in December.

…&HI! Park Bom and Lee Hi that is. I just love their debut song ”All I Want for Christmas is You“ ♡
I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas. I had a wonderful time. Although shortly after Christmas I got sick with a nasty fever, so I haven’t been able to leave the sofa for a couple of days. But today I’m feeling a little bit better, so I decided to try and write something here to wish you all a merry Christmas.
Hehe, I know Christmas isn’t about presents, but I just found these adorable little cards by Charly Clements, so I just couldn’t resist writing this ♡
We don’t have much Christmas decorations this year, so I tried making our place cosy with candles ^^
and here are some pictures from our annual Christmas baking with friends ♡
And it has been a very strange Christmas in Sweden this year, at least here in Stockholm because there is no snow and temperatures far above 0°C, and we usually have lots of snow and very cold weather this time of year. But I must say I’m kind of enjoying the warm weather. I don’t really like the cold, except for maybe a couple of days. Or if I go skiing. But I guess the cold weather will come eventually, so I’m just trying to enjoy the not-so-cold weather as long as I can. I think it will be quite warm at New Year’s as well, so maybe I’ll be able to wear something nice without freezing to death. If I can find a dress that is… trying to find a dress (in your own size) the day before New Year’s is practically impossible. But I’ll see what happens.
