Om clariz90

My name´s Clara, 26 year-old from Sweden/USA. Adopted from Nicaragua. I came to Sweden when I was 3,5 months old. I´m a premature baby, born 3,5 months too early and complication of that was that I got Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) or Terry Syndrome which led to 10 eye surgeries and today I´ve 30% percent vision on my right eye and no vision on my left eye. But i´ve been doing just fine, thanks to the great doctors who did EVERYTHING in their power to help me at University Hospital of Linköping, Sweden 26 years ago. I want to point out, most people have more problem with how I´m able to live a daily life with no white cain, no service dog and do as well as I am. I do not know anything else and my brain and my body have adjusted to the situation I am in. Lots of people tells me that I am brave, stubbon and never give up whenever I set my mind up to do something. I own a horse, a ten-year-old mare named Toga and when I´m riding I´m just like everyone else and nobody notice my vision issue, I trust her with my life and she´s my very best friend. My biggest inspiration and role models in equestrian sport are: - Jessica Springsteen (USA) - Edwina Tops-Alexander (AUS) - Laura Kraut (USA) - Yazmin Pinchen (GBR) - Rolf-Göran Bengtsson (SWE) Another interest i have is music, I started singing in a local choir at my church when I was five, started play the piano at age six, started play the guitar at age 12 and harmonica at age 16. My biggest inspiration and role models in music are: - Bruce Springsteen - Patti Scialfa - Johnny Cash At the moment I work as an Elementary School Music Art teacher, where I teach kids aged 6-12. I graduated University of Gothenburg´s Teacher´s Program in 2015.

Last day of the Christmas break… Now back to reality !!


Hope your Holidays were good and that y´all could enjoy some downtime and be with your friends and family. I´d a great time and spent Christmas at my parents place.

I decided to meet up with a friend from Gothenburg in Malmö for a few days to just hang out and go to Copenhagen. Also I managed to book an appointment with my hairdresser who’s moved to Malmö (see eariler post).

Day 1: 

Friday morning I took a train ride down south and after we got to the hotel to drop off our bags and get freshened up we went to take the train ride across the Øresundbrige to Copenhagen, Denmark for a little fun and some shopping .

I got slippers, ear plugs & a sleeping mask

When we arrived at København Hovebanegard we went to have some Danish Pastry and boy is it good or what?? I’ll attach a picture of how they look below.

Then we went off through the City Hall Square and onto the shopping stroke Strøget to check out the sales. Found some great stuff and as it got darker, the city lit up and it was so cozy just strolling down the street and watch people, listening to the musicians playing and just be in the moment.

On our way back to catch the train back to Malmö we passed by the famous amusement park ”Tivoli”.

I knew they’ve an Apple Store at Emporia and I’ve only been in to Apple Store’s in the United States and London before, so I was very excited to go there so to speak. OMG, it was heaven, I got a silicone case (Hibiscus) and a new screen protector since mine was cracked.

The last day at the Farm we all went ice-skating on the pond close by the Farm and it was so much fun!! Last time I stood in ice-skates was probably like two years ago, at first it was really painful but then after a while I got used to it. Great weather, the sun showed up and we decided to have a barbecue as well and we just goofed around and just enjoyed the last few days of Christmas break!! Thanks Dad for the great photo skills!!

Hair Salon appointment – New Year, new hair


As I wrote earlier I took some days off to meet a friend in southern Sweden in a town called Malmö and I managed to get a appointment at my hairdresser Johan who’s moved to Malmö!! It’s been one(!) year since he did my hair and he’s the best, he knows me, my hair and how I want it!!

Here’s some pictures from how it looked last time:

2/23/2017 – Last time Johan did my hair

So Saturday I went to his new Hair Salon CAPO Hairdressing in central Malmö and it looked AMAZING!! OMG, such cool interior and cozy.

Love this chandelier!! Nice and cozy!!

Love this chandelier!! Nice and cozy!!


As y’all know my biggest inspiration and role model is Jessica Springsteen and I’ve always loved her hair so since I let do my hair, he’s done it similar to Jessie’s hair and it’s fits me so much. It’s called Balayage.

This is how I looked when we started…

Total mess!! I’m ready!!

In progress

So here we go…

They’d massage chairs and it was soo nice to get a massage while waiting for the color to set in…


The result:

I couldn’t be happier with the result!! OUTSTANDING is all I can say. Johan is pure magic and I can’t wait to go back again!!


The behind the scenes – photo shoot for social media’s

Of course Johan and myself wanted some pics of the results, to put on the Hair Salon website, social media’s and so on. We did a little photo shoot and my friend came to pick me up, she took some ”behind the scenes” pics too.

Happy Holidays!!


I’m on Christmas break and boy oh boy, was the last few weeks of the semester rough or what?? So glad to have a few weeks off and hang around and just enjoy having some time off!!

I spent the Holidays at my parents place and my brother came too!! It was pretty quiet Christmas Eve and we attended church and then had Lunch and it was a real feast!!

Christmas Eve Lunch with the fam!! 💯💕

I got some really nice gifts 🎁 and I finally can make myself a Thai Chai Latte at home with my new BOSH Tassimo Joy !! Love it so much!!

Anyone wanna have a Thai Chai Latte??

Then I also got the soundtrack to the hit 236-shows run of ”Springsteen On Broadway” from my parents!!


I’ll post more soon!! Hope y’all had a great few days with your loved ones!!

All the best, xoxo 😘

WORK – like riding a roller coaster


Well there’s been a few weeks at work that’s been really rough and I try to work through it…

At work I’m very busy and we’re rehearsing towards the graduation ceremony and I’m really bummed cuz the woman who I’ve been working with for a year didn’t get a permanent employment which leaves me alone and back to square one.

Teaching arts 🎭 isn’t the easiest job and I having around 300 kids a week and being just me it’s hard to see when something happens, due to my eye condition I’ve to work twice as hard to ”see” everything, do I still manage to stick to my plan?

My question is ”For how long can I manage without getting mentally exhausted?”.

Lots of people at work is mentally exhausted 😩 and some are quitting to find jobs at other schools -I’m not gonna lie if I say our school is an easy place to work at, it’s not.

The area/neighborhood the school is located at is very tough and we work hard everyday to maintain a good quality of education.

Sometimes I dream about doing something else, like spend time riding, go travel and see friends and do more horse shows. If I ever win a Euro Jackpot 🎰 I know what I’d do:

– buy me a nice house 🏡

– buy another horse 🐴

– buy a horse truck 🚚

– buy a new camera 📸

– study English in the 🇺🇸

– travel, I wanna go back to London, New York City🗽and see auntie Sheila in Florida 🏖.

I’m counting down the days until Christmas break!!

New riding boots – Parlanti Passion Miami Field Boots


When I was at the Elmia Scandinavian Horse Show 2018 I purchased a pair of riding boots! I’ve never had a brand new pair before I always got second handed or from friends who’s outgrown theirs. But now I wanted to treat myself with brand new ones.

I looked around the exhibition and tried on different boots from brands such as EGO7, DeNiro and Ariat. But they didn’t fit or looked the way I wanted.

Then I got to LEAD Sports AB who sells Parlanti Passion. I’ve had my eyes on Parlanti Roma boots for a long time and I’ve tried them at the Gothenburg Horse Show & at the LONGINES FEI European Championships – Gothenburg 2017.

They fitted me for the boots and I chose the Parlanti Passion Miami Field Boots in black.

Here’s a link to my YouTube channel and the unboxing video: New Riding Boots – Unboxing. Hope y’all like it and I’ll let y’all know when I’ve used them a while and what my thoughts and impressions are.

Until next time, have a great week!!

xx, 😘😘

Hello fall 🍁🍂🍄🍂🍁



Fall season is here and the colors changing and it’s pure beauty!! I gotta bring my camera 📸 out and snap some photos along the canal.

Work has been hectic over the past two weeks, many colleagues been sick and we try to manage and step in and help where’s needed. It’s a wonder I haven’t caught any flu/cold yet, due to the kids isn’t covering their mouth when sneezing or coughing. But I always carry a pocket size hand sanitizer with me and I don’t know what I would do without it.

Next weekend I’m off to Elmia Scandinavian Horse Show to work, meet up with friends and watch some great riders show. So excited!!

I’ll try to do a vlog and post what I’m up to! Until then, have a great week!!

xx, 😘

Back to vlogging!

Hello my trusty followers!!

I Hope y´all had a great weekend! I did, I met up with a friend downtown and we stumbled upon a real Steam Engine Train at the train station and it was really cool and the smell was very special. We were downtown to shoot some photos at the Pride parade and it was a lot of people in it and we got some great shots too.

I also purchased a new tripod stand for my vlog camera, so that I can start to make more vlogs.


My new tripod from Velbon with my Sony A5000 camera.

Not to long ago I found my old Apple Macbook Pro and I decided to trade it in like I did with my iPhone 8 Plus to get my iPhone X and I decided to get an Apple Watch Series 4. I haven’t received it yet, but when I do I do a vlog when I unbox and what my first impressions are.
