Happy Mother's Day!
 
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there, but specially to my own mum!
I think we all need to show our appreciation towards our mothers more than we actually do! We all have our differences; we just need to remember to accept and respect one another. 
 
Despite our differences, I love my mum! She's tough, loving, patient and don't forget very funny! I'm thankful for everything she does for my siblings and I. We may not say it too often enough but, thank you mum for everything you do for us to make sure we get the best life we possible can get. 
- Mahal Kita! <3 
 
 
THROWBACK THURSDAY: Cody Simpson
I have a confession to make. I've always had a soft spot for the australian artist Cody Simpson, so when I heard he was coming to Gothenburg for his European tour; I had to go!
 
The tour was a promotion for his upcoming album "FREE", which is his first independet album. "FREE" has a more acoustic sound to it than his previous songs he has released. I'm very excited to hear the full studio versions once they get released!
At almost every concerts, there's supporting acts. For Cody's show there was two supporting acts; Jackson Harris and
Ryan Beatty. I really enjoyed their set, specially Jackson's because of his feel good energy he had!
Once Cody came out on stage, everyone was just buzzing!
I don't get to see an acoustic set that often, so I really enjoyed it! It has such a different vibe than a fullband show, with dancers and everything. The smaller set is more tense, and upclose that you kinda get closer to the artist in a way. 
I loved hearing "New problems", "Flower" and "Home to Mama" which is some of his latest songs. Just too bad he didn't sang "Surfboard" since almost everyone was waiting to hear it. 
After the show I got to meet Jackson Harris, for just a bref minute or two. Since I still was very jetlagged from my trip to the Philippines, I wasn't able to stay longer to wait for Cody. Such a shame!
 
Ullevi: Superheroes Against Cancer
 
"Superheroes Against Cancer" is an organazation that works against cancer, to help collect money to "Barncancerfonden" and to spread a moment of joy for the kids that are struggeling with cancer in different ways. 
 
The other week, I went to Ullevi to see my two friends who are working with the organization as "Merida" and "Superman". I've never seen them working in their characters before, but I must say it was very fun to see the joy of the children's faces when they got to meet their hereos. A smile, a hug or even a simply hello really make a difference. I'm looking forward to see more of their work in the future!
