LOVE. Surprisingly enough I didn’t really do much shopping during my stay in Stockholm, but one thing I brought back with me to NY was this awesome leather jacket from the Swedish brand Hunkydory. Love the fit + the large silver buttons!

STHLM. During our trip to Stockholm we stayed a couple of days at the lovely Scandic Grand Central where the picture above was shot, and it’s safe to say that I fell head over heels in love with those large, beautiful windows. Just imagine spending your weekends cuddled up with a blanket, some tea and a book on that window sill, sounds pretty amazing if you ask me.

We had so much fun during the trip that our two weeks litterally flew by, but we managed to snap a bunch of pictures for a little photo diary that you can check out below. Have a great weekend everyone!

Rainy day in Stockholm

STHLM. Got back from Stockholm the other day and even though it feels great to be back in NY, I still miss my old hometown a lot. Isn’t it funny how the simple things you take for granted in your home country suddenly comes to mean so much to you when moving abroad? Like enjoying a perfect, fresh-out-of-the-oven, Swedish cinnamon roll and a cup of coffee with friends & family on a cold and rainy day for example. Ask any Swede and you’ll learn just how serious we are about our “fika” (Fika roughly translates to coffee break, but really, it’s so much more than a mere coffebreak!). That, and taking your shoes off when you enter someones home, because why on earth would you wear your dirty shoes inside? My American friends laugh their butts of everytime I remove my shoes while hanging out at their place, but that’s just how Swedes roll. These pictures where shot at the lovely café at Scandic Grand Central on one of those rainy days and let me tell you, that was one hell of a cinnamon roll!

BEST OF. 2013 is coming to an end and it has truly been one of the most exciting years of my life. I’ve been blessed with great work oportunities, met new amazing people and of course, made the jump and moved across the Atlantic to my new hometown, New York. All in all, I would say it’s been a pretty spectacular year and 2014 has some pretty large shoes to fill, but I have no doubt that next year will be equally wonderful. Thank you so, so much for continuing to follow my adventures on the blog, I don’t say it enough but it really means the world to me. So, with these pictures we say goodbye to 2013, and I wish all of you a magical 2014!
