Silent Disco: I was 30 years ahead of my time.

This morning, I stumbled over an article about Silent Disco (in Swedish – please use Google Translate), a new concept for conferences and events, where people rent LED earphones with three pre programmed channels which makes it possible for guests to listen to different music at the same party. (Silent Disco Sweden) The funny thing… I was 30 years ahead of my time and did ...

Why you should listen to Gary John Bishop

I am sure that you all have people who make you better. Everyone from your nearest and dearest to someone you’ve never met – who just say the right thing at the right time to push you in the right direction. Some people are brilliant at doing just that. Gary John Bishop is one of them.  I have never met him in person, but have been following him online for some time now, after ...

Conor McGregor – the Perfect Psychopath

(at the time of writing I am just waiting for the press conference after UFC 229 Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov. Something happened tonight at the event. No spoilers here at this point, but I will probably be updating this post later in the afternoon with my take on the upcoming result) For those of you who don’t know that, I am a huge MMA fan. Once in a while, I turn my day ...

asa wallenrud best friend magdalena bibik-westerlund

Happy 40th to my best friend!

Everyone should have a best friend, a person you share the good and the bad in life with, a person who questions you when needed and pushes you to become the best version of yourself. My best friend is Åsa Wallenrud and today is her 40th birthday!!    We got to know each other about 10 years ago at SATS. She came to my dance classes, and was a real sceptic at first, haha! I don’t even ...
writing a book magdalena bibik-westerlund

So, I am writing a book…

Hello there my dear reader! Let me share some exciting news with you! I am writing a book! A lighthearted fun short book about habits. The idea came to me when I was discussing what it would be like to turn 40 and what advice I would give to my younger self. Bit by bit a format popped into my head and now I’m in the middle of the process. Actually, my time span for publishing this thing ...
zumo rescue dog magdalena bibik-westerlund

One year with a rescue dog.

Sharing a life with a dog is my default happy state of mind. Due to work, travels and lack of time (and the fact that it’s pure cruelty to introduce an active puppy to an old cat who just wants to have chill golden years) we have been dogless for a long time. That all changed when a rescue dog, doberman/border collie mix named Zumo came into our lives exactly one year ago today, and ...
name day magdalena bibik-westerlund

Name Day Flowers and revival of the DSLR.

Name day. Such a forgotten reason to celebrate. Unless you are spending time on the countryside with your awesome neighbors. Because they come with flowers. And that gives you reason to pick up your Canon EOS 7D mark ii that has been asleep for 8 weeks. I haven’t celebrated “Magdalena’s” much in my adult years. In Poland, name day is actually bigger than birthday, but ...
sommarnattens toner

Sommarnattens Toner i Skebobruk.

(In English below). Vi har flyttat till en by med 284 boende (oss inräknat). Inte för en sekund trodde jag att min konsumtion av kultur och konst skulle skjuta i höjden efter att ha lämnat Stockholm! Visst, vi är i semester mode och ju färre valmöjligheter desto mer deltar man i saker (#fomo existerar inte här) – men ändå! Varje vecka händer det något häftigt här i Roslagen. Den här ...
