Things I have learned in 2016

0

Another year is coming to an end and it has been a rollercoaster of emotions and lessons learned. Despite having started in one of the worst ways possible, I couldn’t be happier about everything I have been through and experienced this year. There has been tears, cuts and bruises, screaming at the top of my lungs and dying many times before I could put myself back to pieces again. This has truly been a year of self discovery, the year of “me”. I released myself from the biggest anchor weighing me down and learned how to stand strong in my…

Great Hair With Bobby’s Superhair

0

Living in Sweden comes with its pros and cons, just like any other country. But the typical Scandinavian weather is undeniably in the latter category. With a few weeks of strong sun exposure followed by rain and cold for the rest of the year, it’s bound to take a toll on your skin and hair. Mix that together with a combination of hair products, blow dryers and straighteners and you have yourself a shortcut (pun intended) to a dull and damaged hair. Diet and lifestyle is also a key factor to the quality of your skin, hair and nails and…

Genuine Japanese steel in Odenplan

0

In the heart of Odenplan lies Japanese Knife Company, a company with a huge passion and knowledge about the history and art of Japanese steel and sharpening. Anyone who is serious about their cooking knows the importance of having the right tools in the kitchen to work with, the knife probably being the most important one. Having the right tools with you won’t just make cooking easier but also a whole lot more fun, and we all know that one of the best meals we have ever made has been while just having fun in the kitchen! Run by Pigge…

Ristorante Paganini in Gamla Stan

0

In the middle of the most popular street amongst tourists in Gamla Stan (The Old Town) is one of my favourite lunch places, Ristorante Paganini. I first set foot in this quaint and charming little restaurant in the beginning of this year and it quickly became my go-to place for a nice lunch. Eating at this beautifully decorated restaurant is the fastest way to experience a little bit of Italy. Especially during the summer months when they open the windows all the way and you can sit there with a glass of wine and enjoy the beauty that is Swedish summer.…

MAYA STHLM

0

There are those nights out when everything feels just right. Where the perfect combination between great company, warm ambience, good music and delicate food exists under one and the same roof. Last night was one of those nights and I have Maya to thank for it! At our arrival we’re greeted by our waitress and taken to our table upstairs, the place is small but held suprisingly many people and the reastaurant was completely booked up. We started with a Pisco Sour to drink, an incredibly well made drink for a somewhat fussy Latina who’s very picky when it comes…

Frozen Nice Cream Cake

0

For a lack of better words, let’s just call this completely improvised creation for what it is – A frozen banana ice cream cake thingy! I got the inspiration from a dear friend of mine who loves to tease me with beautiful pictures of food. In the mids of a food picture spam I thought to myself “why not make a gluten free, vegan and a healthy all-natural cake?” Said and done, and I present to you this recipe for said cake that somehow mysteriously disappeared within 10 minutes in the hands of my family. Having only made it once,…

The Little Things

0

I’m getting more and more nostalgic as time goes by, truly appreciating everything we’ve got around us. This will be my last autumn and winter in Sweden in years and I’m making the most of the little time I have left (a must visit right now is Bergianska Trädgården by Universitetet and Rosendals Trädgård). Autumn has always been my favorite season, few things are as beautiful as watching nature go from all its life and vitality to the inevitable change of our surrounding. It’s like seeing the circle of life right before our eyes, in the most literal and metaphorical…

Resilience

0

Today I feel like pouring myself a nice cocktail of benzodiazepines so I can escape the emotional pain I’m in, just for a few seconds of peace and quiet. This is what living with anxiety feels like and I’m one fuck up away from a panic attack. I swear I could drop a spoon and all hell will break loose, and everyone within a 20 meter radius of this cafe will see a girl crying on the floor like a little baby not being able to breathe. But my makeup looks too damn perfect today for me to give in…

Mango Salsa

0

This summer when I was working more than full time and coming home exhausted after long days standing on my feet, I didn’t feel like myself dinner. That’s when I came up with this amazing salsa, perfect as an addition to lift up any meal or eat it like I do just as it is! I’ve been doing it with spicy prawns with chili and lime until I had it with raw salmon last night and oh my god, how good it was! So I thought I would share my recipe with you! 1-2 portions 1 ripe mango 1-2 avocados…

Muggen at Götgatan

0

Ever since I became single a couple of months ago I’ve been enjoying my own company more than I thought I would, so much to the point where I’m almost constantly doing everything by myself lately. Ever since I was 14 years old I’ve either been in or out of a relationship and I’ve never fully given myself the chance to find out who I am outside the part I played of the perfect girlfriend. I did it with such enthusiasm to the point where I didn’t know who I was without my significant other, and when that ended I…

Serenity

0

Those who know me or have been following me for a while are aware of the fact that I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs the last couple of years, dealing with anxiety, depression and panic attacks. I’ve always been open about my mental health because I don’t want anyone to suffer alone in silence, something that brought me one of the most beautiful people I know into my life. But when a big chapter in my life came to an end in April this year I hit another low and started struggling with panic attacks and anxiety…

Rosendals Trädgård

1

Stockholm has been really nice for some days now, and with spring in the air and sun in your eyes you have to make the most of it while you can! We took a small trip to Djurgården with the ferry that leaves from Slussen, which in itself is a nice little experience and from there we walked to Rosendals Trädgård, not too far away from Skansen, to eat some good food with nature as our neighbour. I remember my dad taking me there once when I was a kid when it was summer and the garden is so nice…
