soft ice in strängnäs

Soft ice at the harbour here in Strängnäs. I've been on Instagram, taking walks, reading essays and preparing blog posts most of the day since the students here at Rays* are writing their essays. I also went to a lecture about the brain that I found very interesting despite the fact that I knew most of it - it's always nice to refresh things...

reference of sweden dry shampoo

The latest delivery... New Reference of Sweden dry shampoo. I thought I'd use it the first couple of days in Stockholm where I'm heading today (I'll be visiting my sister at Rays in Strängnäs)! On Thursday, I'm heading for Stockholm and our hotel in Stureplan with my Mum. I can't wait! Places in Stockholm that are definitely on my visiting list are: Birger Jarlsgatan, Fotografiska Museet, Café Saturnus, NK, Brandy Melville, Mood, Odd Molly and Zadig & Voltaire.

sup

I've been doing SUP (stand up paddle) after work the last couple of days and I love it! It's super relaxing and at the same time a nice and peaceful work out. I'm in my beloved black "Twiggy Stardust" Triangl bikini in these pictures. Now, I'll be packing for the two weeks ahead - one in Stockholm and one in Côte d'Azur.

roskilde envy

Seeing all the pictures from Roskilde Festival on Instagram and Facebook has left me with just a très petite feeling of Roskilde envy. Here's a picture of me in the Tuborg Lounge last year, enjoying a Garage Hard Lemonade.

pale & soft

New ins from the shopping in Copenhagen. I got a new Clarisonic brush head this time. I chose the slightly more expensive Luxe edition called "Cashmere Cleanse". I though it fitted quite well with the other stuff I bought - a bunch of mohair and cashmere sweaters from Club Collection and a dress and a top from Rosemunde. I think it's all very pretty, pale and soft and I'll definitely bring it with me to Stockholm and Côte d'Azur the next couple of weeks. I'm spending today packing, blogging, walking and enjoying my last day at home before two weeks of travelling. I might watch some House of Cards too...

båstad sand and beach

My BFF and I decided to go to Båstad today to enjoy the lovely Swedish summer weather (this time it's not even with a slight touch of irony). We started with a light lunch at "Sands Bakficka" where we both had the tuna mousse rye bread. Then we spent the rest of the day at the beach, which was very hot. I wore a Ralph Lauren shirt dress and a red little bracelet with a golden star.

radio new nordic gastronomy

The new nordic gastronomy we had at Radio yesterday night. It was all super delicious, pretty and it felt quite healthy (even though I had the ice cream...). We had three courses each. The picture above was just a little extra appetizer consisting of radishes and BBQ sauce. Then we had Norway lobsters with carrots and a Danish smoked cheese. The second course was a plaice with gooseberries and cucumber. Last but not least, my Mum chose a course with beans, heart lettuce, elderflowers and whey foam. The plate was so pretty that I had to snap a detail shot of it. Instead of that dish, I chose the ice cream with strawberries and raw liquorice. A very scrumptious meal indeed! I'd definitely recommend Radio since it's new nordic, fancy, light, delicious, has gorgeous interior and isn't super pricey.

copenhagen tour

Today Mum and I went to Copenhagen so she could show me some parts of Copenhagen that I haven't really been to a lot. I might move to Copenhagen if I choose to study there this fall... So we started out in the Central Station and went to Frederiksberg where we also had sodas at Café Funder in Frederiksberg Gardens. I had the raspberry one and Mum had the ginger/lemon. They were both delicious. Frederiksberg is a pretty, green and relatively peaceful area. Then we went shopping a bit in Club Collection in Nordhavn, so we passed by both parts of Nørrebro and Østerbro. Afterwards, we went to Kgs. Nytorv to do some shopping and share a burger at Bistro Royal, which was fine. The next stop was Islands Brygge and Christianshavn, which are areas that both seem very cozy - particularly with all the summery buzz. After that, we had dinner at Radio in Frederiksberg and it was super delicious (post coming up)! We ended the tour with ice cream at Paradis where I had lemon sorbet and passionfruit sorbet. It has been such a lovely day and I recommend everyone who mainly goes to Copenhagen because of the city centre and the shopping to expand their knowledge about different parts of Copenhagen!

Outfit:
Sunglasses: Tom Ford.
Top: Rosemunde.
Bag: LV.
Shorts: Brandy Melville.
Ballerinas: Bangkok.

maanesten tassels

I know it's late to post now, but I just wanted to show you these gorgeous bracelets from Maanesten. I prefer the pale pink bracelet with the pink tassels above to the left. A coral or red one would also look quite cool with a maritime outfit. Hopefully, I'll pick one of these treats up in the flagship store in Copenhagen tomorrow. On my shopping list: Rosemunde (it's impossible to track down the things I'd like to buy), GB dry shampoo and a new Clarisonic brush.

running in stairs

I just had dinner after coming home from work... I'm sleepy but I'll go for a walk with my Mum now. Tomorrow candy free week with lots of work outs is staring (yes - I ran up the stairs too). Hopefully, more outfit pictures are coming soon! I hope you had a great week!

rain over the ocean

Here's a pretty cool shot of the ocean that I took when in Tisvildeleje. Dramatic. I've been working all day today and now we're barbecuing.

pampered

I've been so pampered this week! A relaxed stay in Tisvildeleje where I had lots of sleep, delicious food and great company. When I got home, I did a full facial with my new Munkholm Mud Mask and Decléor products. Today I've been sleeping all morning too, then I tanned and went to work out, go for a walk and we've just had an amazing dinner. I adore my new cute duvet covers by H&M Home and matched it with my Victoria's Secret PJs.

malmoe thursday

This grey Thursday I went shopping in Malmoe and Emporia with my BFF (photo cred for the picture above). I actually didn't buy anything but we had a yummy lunch at Lilla Kafferosteriet and later coffee at Espresso House. By the way, I edited both pictures with VSCO Cam - do any of you guys have it? I think they turned out pretty well!

munkholm mud & honey

My Mum bought me and my sister one facial mask each from Munkholm when we were in Gilleleje. I got the one with mud and my sister will get the honey one. Right now, I'm blogging from home and soon I'll go for a walk and later tonight I'll pamper myself with a facial, hair mask and a bubble bath in this wintery weather!

st. john's eve

 Today was St. John's Eve so we went down to the beach after the sumptuous dinner. We were lucky and saw the sun set too. Tomorrow we're going home!

lobsters in tisvildeleje

My Grandfather surprised us with this sumptuous and luxurious dinner for St. John's Eve. I love all kinds of shellfish and particularly lobster and shrimps! Today I also went to Gilleleje with my Grandmother and Mum to have lunch and my Grandmother gave me a gorgeous black lace dress. You'll see it on the blog when I wear it! Soon, we're off to the beach and bonfire here in Tisvildeleje.

apricots & strawberries

I'm so tired after a busy work weekend and I really look forward to going to the Danish Riviera later today. I hope the weather gets better so I can go for a swim! Here's a healthy breakfast that I had last week: green tea, whole grain "välling", apricots and strawberries. I have such a nectarine craving at the moment!

mihanna hat by malene birger

The hat. I got this from my sister when I turned 20 and I absolutely adore it. It's Hedi Slimane chic - not too cowboy and not too cute and "floppy". I'll wear it a lot grey chilly summer days and all the other days of the year with white, grey, black or red outfits.

coronas & nachos

Here's a picture of our (not very Swedish) midsummer dinner! My boyfriend and I just had nachos, Coronas and guacamole in the sun after a busy day at work.

Happy Midsummer to all the swedes! I've been super busy at work all day today and I look forward to a relaxed evening!
