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!

MONDAY. Found these good ol’ pictures from a couple of magical days spent with Nanette Lepore’s lovely family in the Hamptons this summer and thought they might brighten up this dull, grey Monday a bit! Already daydreaming myself back to sunset swims, bonfires and candlelit dinners underneath the stars..
HI. Just wanted to make a quick post to show you guys this amazing swimsuit from Dagmar that I wore for my morning swim a couple of hours ago (if only every morning could start like this!). I’m currently spending the 4th of July weekend in Nanette Lepore’s beautiful summer house in the Hamptons and I seriously never want to leave, this place is magical!

GRAND. Me and Mattias spent the weekend at the lovely Scandic Grand Central and I seriously can’t remember the last time I felt this rested. In the beginning of April we will be moving into our new apartment and as we’ve already moved out of our old one, we’ve been living with my parents for a while. Eventhough it’s great to get to spend some time with the family, it kind of drives you slightly crazy after a while, and to get 3 days alone in a beautiful, quiet room was a dream come true. The fact that my BFF Andy who’s been in town for a couple of days stayed at the hotel during the same time only made things even better.
A couple of days ago I finally took the plunge and bought the camera of my dreams and even though it left a gigantic hole in my savings, it’s the best darn investment I’ve ever made. Since I’m ridiculously excited about my new toy, I obsessively snapped everything that came in my way over the weekend. Hence, this rather random photo diary!
