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.

Got some Team USA gear in the mail today!!

I’m in the SQAUD!!  

Today I received some goodies from a friend of mine! Her name´s Georgina Bloomberg and she’s a U.S. Show Jumper and she was competing in the World Cup Finals during the Gothenburg Horse Show 2019 in April. I catched up with her at the show and had a chat and I also shot some photos for her and I bought her some merchandise from the show as a souvenir.

After the show was done I really wanted to get some Team USA merchandise and I ask Georgina if I could buy it somewhere and then she said ”No worry, I´ll send some to you!” how sweet is that?? So today I received a lotta stuff, and I really can´t THANK Miss Bloomberg enough for being so kind to me and send me all these stuff. I’m ready to take on the LONGINES FEI Nations Cup in Falsterbo this summer as a cheerleader for Team USA!!

New vlog is up on the YouTube channel

Well, since I got so many things I decided to do a HAUL vlog on what I got and if y´all wanna go and check it out go and click at Vlog HAUL – Team USA gear.

Georgina along with Jennifer Gates and Jessica Springsteen are EQUUStars for the EQUUS Foundation and they help raise money to save at-risk horses in America and help them find forever homes. I’ve contributed with a video #RideForHorses along with Princess T and it got posted on their social medias, which was really exciting.

Gothenburg Horse Show 2019 – LONGINES FEI World Cup Finals


Well, here’s a belated post on how my week at the Gothenburg Horse Show 2019 – LONGINES FEI World Cup Finals and I was working as a volunteer and it was my 7th year working at this horse show.

Here I´ll share what I was up to and share some photos I snapped. Also I got to experience some top sport and got to meet some friends who were competing and catch up with them.

What was my role and what did I do?  

Well, this year me and a friend decided to work in a different group than we usually do, just to see something different. Until now I’ve been working at the ”Catering” group, who’s job is serving meals to grooms, riders, medical team, vets, farriers, LONGINES, FEI and volunteers.

All set!!

All set!!

This time I worked in a group called ”Volunteer service” and our job was to sell Merchandise, hand out show programs and fill in in other groups when they needed more people or if someone’s sick. The first two days me and my friend were assigned to help out in the Stables and help unload lorries and prepare stalls. It was so much fun but a physical challenge with lifting and dragging carriages to the diifferent stalls.

Then we were back in the Merchandise booth and then FEI came and asked if some of us wanted to work for them and our job was to get people to snap photos at the # outside of the arena. The # stated: ”#FEIWorldCupFinals” and they´d one in Barcelona at the LONGINES FEI Nations Cup Final in September as well, also they’d a photowall or a backdrop in the foyer as well and we were gonna try and have people taking photos there as well.

Me and my friend said we´d like to help out and that we´d our own cameras and. could either text the pics or AirDrop them. FEI told us that we´d got some gifts as a ”thank you” for doing this, a cap, a shirt and that we could keep them. When working for the FEI we´d had to wear the clothes we got from them, when it was me and my friend working at the #, people came, got their photo taken and we´d a lotta people wanted to take a photo and pose at the FEI #. Also we managed to get the winning Mounted Games Team of Ireland to pose with the Cup and they were so happy and nice! We bumped into the EuroHorse Exhibition as well and they shouted ”Hello” so loud and we gave them a wave and walked by, a little awkward but cool.

The winning Mounted Games Team of Ireland stopped by the # to pose with their Cup!! So cool!!

Sumamry of the week…

Overall it was a great week, except for that our Boss was not very nice to us. She picked on us and whatever we did it seemed like it wasn’t in the right way. So next year we’ll switch to another position. We´re not gonna put up with that kind of bossiness and rudeness.

BUT I got some shopping done too, at the EuroHorse 2019 and since I crashed during a lesson a few weeks before this took place I´d to get me a new helmet since I landed on my head. I´ll do a new post on what I got, also I did a HAUL video that´s up on my YouTube channel.

Until then, ride safe and have a GREAT week!!



I’m sorry!

Hi y´all!

I’m so sorry for not being very active on the blog, but its been so much going on lately and hectic at work. So that’s why y´all haven’t heard much from me, but other than being occupied with work, I managed to get a little time off to go work at the Gothenburg Horse Show and the LONGINES FEI World Cup Finals in April. I´ll share the week in Gothenburg in a new post and I snapped lots of great photos as well.

At the time work is like a roller coaster lots of ups and downs and with just a few weeks to go and me arranging the Graduation ceremony its stressful for me, and I hope it’ll turn out OK..

This will get me through these last weeks of the semester...

One good thing is that I’m going to attend the inagurational LONGINES Global Champions Tour and Global Champions League of Stockholm in June, which I’m very excited about!! Also a few of my friends is going to compete and I can´t wait to see them. I´ll try and keep y´all updated.

This makes me happy and to know I´ll be there get me through the last weeks of the semester!

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”.

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 😘
