Swedish Bloggers’ Homes

Two Swedish bloggers are selling their homes and the rest of the Swedish blogging community are going crazy for these two flats located in central Stockholm. Of course I’m just as amazed by these beautiful flats as everyone else and I wish I was in the market for a new home in Stockholm. The first…

Homes at Hemnet

Apart from looking through Pinterest and Houzz for interior design inspiration another good place to have a look at is Hemnet, which is like a Swedish version of Zoopla and Rightmove. Here you can find the most amazing homes with some great inspiration for your own home. A flat that really caught my eye is…

Crayfish Season at Svenskt Tenn

It’s crayfish season in Sweden and my mum and I went into Svenskt Tenn today where they had styled a table for the festivities. Their fabric Italian Dinner suits especially well this time of year and as I’ve said before I love the bamboo cutlery..! Definitely an inspiration for our next crayfish party. 

Shabby Chic ?

Best place to spend Swedish summers – in the countryside in an old summer cottage from the 18th century. The style for my bedroom was decided when I was young and it still is pink and white with flowers and hearts which dominates this room. Almost a bit shabby chic, or perhaps more shabby than…

Zetas Trädgård

We were too early yesterday for Ikea as the Isle Crawford collection apparently doesn’t come into stores until today or tomorrow.. So we will have to do another visit this week! And now that the new Ikea catalogue was released today we would have to go again anyways! But before our visit to Ikea we…

Summer in Stockholm

After leaving a hot Bali I came home to an (almost) even hotter Sweden! And without the Bali air conditioning it definitely felt a lot warmer! So when my home was too hot to stand I spent the days at Djurgården, one of the prettiest places in Stockholm. 

Swedish midsummer and Finnish archipelago

Last week was Swedish midsummer and as my English boyfriend never has experienced this before I brought him to Sweden to show him what he’s missed out on. And after all the drinking, singing and spontaneous tractor rides we took to boat over to Finland so that he got to see Helsinki and the Finnish archipelago….

On my way to Santa land

After one day in Sweden I’m now on my way to Finland to celebrate Christmas with my family. And tonight I’m meeting my cute cousin for dinner! This is the only picture I have from last year’s Christmas.. Better shape up this time!

Raindrops keep falling on my head

Yesterday we did a second try to get to Winter Wonderland which again didn’t go so well because of the horrible thunderstorm that came to London yesterday, along with even more rain… So we decided to open our Christmas presents instead, which was very nice! Now it’s finally Friday and my Christmas break has started,…

Winter Wonderland

I haven’t been to Winter Wonderland yet this year, so I’ve made my boyfriend take me tonight. Could I have chosen a worse day? Probably not.. It’s poring down outside.. Don’t know what to do now because I really wanna go before I go home to Sweden which is in only two days! The photo…

Christmas jumper Bridget Jones style!

My Christmas jumper has arrived!!! Now I feel proper English, just like Bridget Jones, Mark Darcy and all the English people I know. It’s funny how these jumpers are so popular here, I remember when I was young and my Norwegian grandmother would give these kinds of jumpers to me all the time. Unfortunately they…
