Hi!! Today I’m going to do an outfit post, as well as talk about music. ♥️ So sit back and relax!
I’m really happy because I managed to get two albums I’ve been wanting for awhile by the Swedish band Kent. I feel a bond with this band because listening to their music over the past year really helped me learn Swedish (I’ve been studying the language for over a year now).
It took a bit of online searching to get ahold of these, so I feel fortunate to have them! These are Vapen & Ammunition, and Hagnesta Hill.
Their 1999 album Hagnesta Hill is definitely my favorite, and it took a lot of digging around on eBay to get the version of the album I wanted! Only the English version is available in the U.S., but I very adamantly wanted the original Swedish version.
So I found an eBay seller in Sweden who had it! And as a bonus, I now have Swedish stamps!!!
I love the album art in particular…it has such a moody feel to it, with the overcast greenery and the mysterious, unknown beautiful woman.
The first Kent song I ever heard was Kevlarsjäl – my favorite of theirs. It proved to me yet again that you can indeed fall in love with a song, and human emotion evoked in music transcends any language barrier. 💜
New nails!! And, a new ring I made for myself. 💜
Minty green and pink!! I felt so happy in this outfit because the colors are so sweet. 🌸
What everyday things put a smile on your face? My outfit today certainly did, and spending Friday night listening to my two new albums at Starbucks whilst drinking a hot cherry mocha. ❤️
