Celebrity party in NYC! Yeah, baby!

It´s sad that everytime I have a lot to do in life it´s the blog that suffers :/ Well well, I couldn´t stay away any longer now because I experienced such a cool thing this weekend!

I love the show "Saturday Night Live", it´s so funny and I have met most of the cast members before. This weekend was the season finale for the show and of course they had a party. Me and my friend Hannah had decided that we were going to that party, with or without tickets!

We went there and at first we just tried to be confident and try to just say a name and see if it was on the list. I just went up to the guy with the tickets and said "Hi, I´m Amber Smith" and he asked who´s list I would be on and I just said one of the cast memebers name. Of course that cast member hadn´t left his list with that guy yet so we said we would just wait. We waited for little more than an hour (and saw various celebrities entering the party while we waited). At 3 am Hannah decided to leave and go home. I was determined to go to the party so I stayed. About 15 minutes later a man walks out of the party and asks the ticket man if he had a pen he could borrow, but he didn´t have a pen. Luckily I did. While he borrowed my pen I asked him if the party was good and he said that it was awesome. Then he asked me why I wasn´t at the party so I answered "My friend that was supposed to come with my ticket hasn´t shown up yet" and looked annoyed. The man answered that he was sorry that he couldn´t help and then he walked back to the party.
About 5 minutes later the man came back and said to me, "I´m going to get something in my office, but I will be back in about 3 minutes and when I go back, you are going with me".
I was floating on clouds!!!!!!

The man came back a few minutes later and he took my arm and we entered the party. At the door he pointed towards the bar and wispered in my ear "It´s an open bar so go and have fun now, but do not overdrink. Mingle and have a great night, I will see you around" then he left. I was all alone at a freaking celebrity party with an open bar at the freaking Rockefeller Plaza and Mick Jagger was on stage with the Foo Fighters! HEAVEN, I now know that you exist!

I went straight to the bar to warm up and then I started dancing and mingle. Started talking to some guys that works behind the scene on the show and later we ended up going to the afterparty and I came home at 6.30 in the morning after a GREAT night!

Of course you wanna know which celebrities I spotted at the party :)

I saw: Mick Jagger, The Foo Fighters, Miranda Cosgove, Chris Noth (Yeah, Mr. Big from Sex and the city and yeah, I almost died!), Aziz Asaria, Steve Martin, Gabourey Sidibe, Rachel Dratch, Steve Higgins (Told him I love him and he answered "No, I love YOU") some of the SNL cast members including Bobby Moynihan (talked to him), Fred Armisen (talked to him), Bill Hader (said hi to him), Andy Samberg (Took a picture with him and my friend Hannah before she left), Abby Elliott (stood next to her on the dancefloor) Chris Kelly (Danced with him) Taran Killiam (just saw him on the dancefloor) and Jason Sudekis. I saw a few others as well but I don´t really know their names.

It was just and AWESOME night and my first celebrity party, in NYC! So cool and since I wanna work with PR in the field I ensure you that it was NOT the first and last time I was at a party like that! :D

NYC Stand-up!

Yesterday I went to see my friend Hannah perform some comedy on a open mic night at "The Pit". Both me and Anna first went home to Hannah for some cider and small talk. We drank our ciders and all of a sudden both Hannah and Anna were trying to talk me in to doing stand-up as well.. Doing stand-up has always been something i´ve wanted to try, since like in junior high when people told me I was funny and should be a comedian. I told Anna and Hannah that I would never do it. But after some more alcohol I was actually considering doing it. When we came to the place Hannah signed me up... I had no idea what I was going to talk about during my routine but I had 2 vodka/cranberry before the show and thought that I was just going to get up on stage and say whatever came to mind, which I did! When I was called I got up on stage and just went for it! It felt awesome!!!! I actually got up and performed stand-up in front of maybe 20-30 people in the audience, in New York City!! Talk about improv! I don´t really remember what I talked about but I remeber hearing some laughs from the audience actually! :D

Next week me and Hannah are going back and i´ll have a real routine :D


A new beginning!

This week I started my fifth quarter at Berkeley College. I´m taking "Psycology", "The mind and the body", "Accounting" and "Computer applications in business", and so far I like 3 out of 4 professors... (Let´s see if the forth one is any nice, just met her like 35 minutes the first day)

I think I will have a hard time understanding accounting but I´m gonna fight for it and work my heardest to at least get a B+! My professor in my "The mind and the body"-class talks about some really interesting stuff and he seems really nice! He´s really strict about cell phones, coming late to class, falling asleep during class and look at the clock but still he jokes a lot, and makes his subject really interesting. I really think I will enjoy that class alot :)

I hava a really nice schedule this quarter as well, I only have one class that starts at 12.35pm on mondays, then I have a 11 hours day on tuesdays but i´m off the whole day on wednesdays so that´s fine. On thursdays I have class between 9.50am-3.15pm with two hours lunch inbetween and then i´m off for the weekend including fridays! :) I think I can survive that!

Well, happy easter to you!
Have a good one! :)


Found out yesterday that I could move in to my apartment 2 days earlier!!!
So, last night was my first night in my own freaking apartment!
It feels so GREAT:) I mean, I got to move in to my own apartment in NYC on the same day as I had been here in NYC for 1 year!

The apartment is furnished and everything so I just had to move in my own personal things. Got about half of my things in place yesterday so I got to continue putting my things in place today and get settled before a new semester starts in school with new classes and new classmates which is tomorrow... New classes, new apartment, a new start! Feels refreshing!

1 year in New York City!

Today, one year ago I was just a Swedish girl that was going to New York to live her dream. Today, one year later I know most of the city of my dreams like the back of my hand. Every day is though since I always miss my family and friends b...ack in Sweden but I do not miss Sweden as a country at all. New York has taught me SOOO much and I´ve met so many wonderful people here that I will never ever forget ♥ New York has been a part of my life and my dream since I was 9 years old and New York has made me who I am today, a strong and confident woman with a vision and a dream of success. Today me and New York is celebrating one year together!

Hoboken, New Jersey!

Oh shit! Have not been blogging in over a week!
My life is kind of a mess right now since I live at a friends place until monday before I can move in to my own apartment! :)

I´m also on spring break right now so I have been out and done stuff this week.. I actually took the boat over to Hoboken, New Jersey which was amazing!! I´ve wanted to go there since I first heard about it in Friends, because I liked the name of it.. Then since I moved here I have met so many people from Hoboken and everyone have told me to go there and I gotta syt that I really loved it! It´s like a little town and it´s really cute! It was just an amazing day! When I´m back on track in my own apartment and everything i´ll post some pictures! :) Also went to "The Cake Boss" bakery which is located in Hoboken.. Really liked it :D

Well, have to run out and make the city a little more crazy now! Will be back next week I think!


Woke up to 22 degrees and a big shining sun! :)

Awesome, it feels like summer in New York already, and you gotta love it!

Time to put on something summer like and then hit the town :) Have to go to the gym and work out and then look for shoes and a spring coat since the only coat I have is the one I´ve used all winter and I have to tell you, it´s kinda warm!

Enjoy the rest of your day!

St. Patricks weekend!

It´s been a good weekend!

I´m currently staying at my friends house since I can´t move in to my apartment yet and this weekend she had a friend from Baltimore over for St. Patricks day. St. Patricks was really fun! Lot´s of crazy shit happened and I felt awesome with my green nails and my green beads :)

Today we´ve been walking around in Harlem. It´s crazy that I´ve been living here for almost a year and today was the first time I saw the Apollo theatre and also for the first time really walked around in Harlem for real. Been up there before and I mean I used to live right where spanish Harlem starts but never actually just walked and looked around. Had some good Thai food for lunch as well, YUMMY!
The weather was wonderful as well so it was a really good day :)

Now i´m soo tired though since I barely slept anything last night. Time to be lazy!

Last few minutes...

Sitting here in the apartment, just a few more minutes before i´m closing the door for the last time.
It´s been a good apartment foor a year now. Will miss some parts of it and then there´s other parts that i ABSOLUTLEY won´t miss with it!

Have to vaccume one last time before i´m out of here. Bye bye 100 street and Lexington ave! (Upper east side/ Spanish Harlem) 


East side to west side...

Tonight will be my last night in the apartment where I´ve been living for one year, since I moved to New York. 
 Been moving little by little in Ikea bags by bus. I mean, I´m a student and can´t really afford a moving truck. Yesterday I filled a suitcase, which ended up REALLY heavy! I had blisters in my hand when I left it at the new place!!
I live on the fifth floor so I had to carry it down all the five flights by myself. THAT SHIT HURT! Good thing that I´m gonna live on the first floor at the new place so I didn´t have to carry it that far up!

Anyways, from tomorrow I will no longer be a "Upper East Side Girl" like Carrie, I will instead be a Upper West Side Girl" like Miranda (yes, i´m reffering to "Sex and the city" boys ;) No, really, from tomorrow until in about 2 weeks I´ll be a "Bronx-girl" since I´ll be living at a friends house until I can move in to my place... It´s gonna be me and J-Lo ;) "Vicky from the block" ;)

(Bye bye Upper East Side)

(Hello Upper West Side)

Lovely sunday in NYC...

It´s been a great sunday so far.

Met up a friend for our regular thai lunch and as usual it was SUPER GOOD!
After the lunch I walked to the gym and it took me probably about 15 minutes and the weather was lovely, sun and about 16 degrees, can´t complain. Worked out for about 1 and a half hour and then I got massage, SOOO NICE!

After that I bought a coffee and walked to K-mart and then I went home. It is now 5.50 pm (17.50) and the sun is still shining and the sky is clear blue, apparently the weather will be even better this whole week!!! I´m not sad at all ;)


I have never ever understood people who walk slow.... In this city everything is very fast and "speedy". But, of course there are people who walk like they just woke up. I´m always panicing when I walk behind slow people and of course they walk 3-4 people on a row so that you can´t pass them on any side!
The worst place on Manhattan is Times Square!!!! I don´t think anyone that lives here in New York likes Times Square. I kind of hate myself for saying that because I know everyone on Times Square are tourists and they wanna look at things (I was just like that all the times I was on vacation here before I moved here) but still.. You have to realize that you can´t walk on the sidewalk with millions of other people and then just stop and take a picture!!! I rarely go there because I always think i´m gonna get a heart attack when i´m there but the best Forever 21 is on Times Square so once in a while I just have to go there :/

Spring in New York!

FINALLY the spring has hit New York!
Today we´ve had 20 degrees (C) and it has been so nice! Sunglasses, jacket, a cute top, jeans and boots and yet I was sweating! Took a walk home from school which is about 5 kilometers and takes about 50-55 minutes (of course I walked on Madison ave.!!!) and everyone seemed so happy and satisfied!

On my way home I stopped by the store and bought some Strawberries again :) SO GOOD!

(This is how i´m celebrating the spring!)


Anyways, I have started to think more and more about mind control.
A few months ago a saw the documentary named "The secret" which from the beginning was a book. I loved it becasue a lot of what they are talking about is so true. It´s basically about controlling your own thoughts and ideas. You have to thinks as if you were already there.. For example, don´t think "if I ever get rich...." instead you should think "When i´m rich..." Control your thought and believe in yourself because if you don´t truly believe in yourself then who will believe in you?

Strawberry breakfast!

Yoghurt+roasted oats+ Fresh strawberries= A wonderful and healthy breakfast!

A new era begins...

There´s so much going on right now. I´m about to move, I am really focused on my training at the gym and it´s the 2 last weeks of this quarter in school... This quarter i´ve been totally unorganised and tired.. When next quarter starts I totally have to focus and work hard. I will be living in my own apartment and if i keep it up at the gym like I do now, I will also have a lot more energy (so it shouldn´t be a problem to focus). I feel it already actually! This week i´ve been at the gym 4 times and everytime I get home from the gym I just think about the next time! It´s so much fun!
 Well, I guess this is the end of an era and in a few weeks a new era will begin :)

Treated myself with some strawberries tonight, and it was SO good! :D

Here´s a picture of me from this weekend!

Molested on a crowded subway....

Yesterday I got molested on a crowded subway :/ I was on my way home from lunch and some shopping with a friend and the subway was so freaking crowded that no one could move and all of a sudden I feel a hand coming up under my coat and after that I feel that a man keeps pushing against me and his "friend" pops up against my butt. I couldn´t even turn around since it was so packed but I tried to move a little bit which I could and I could move so that my leg came in his area but then he started to rub agains my leg instead.. When he then got off the subway I could finally turn around, got eye contact with him and he gave me a big grin and then he blinked.. I felt so dirty!! Then when the subway started to move again I realized that I should have told someone about it of course. I should have told a police officer! I should have done SOMETHING! So annoyed with myself for not doing anything!


Had a crazy night last night with a friend and I think I got home sometime after 4. Totally passed out on the couch and woke up at 2 today and I was too hungover to move basically. New York nights cam be really rough!
Anyways, I decided that I needed to do something with this day so I texted a friend and asked if she wanted to join me to the gym, which she wanted :)
Went there around 4.30 and had a really good 2 hours workout!
I must say though that one of the best parts about working out is when you get home, sit down on the couch and feel good about yourself! :)
