Sorry for the radio silence guys! I took the red-eye to Stockholm and landed on Thursday morning and since then it’s all been a whirlwind of Christmas shopping, birthday dinners and catching up with friends. We’ve been staying at Scandic Grand Central over the weekend (aka my home away from home) and I’ve spent almost every morning in these large, beautiful windows with a big cup of tea, watching people rush by below. Love being back in town!

Today we booked tickets to go back to Sweden over Christmas and I really can’t think of a time when I was more excited about traveling! I’ve been feeling really homesick lately and can’t wait to see my friends + family. So, while I’m counting down the days until I get to set foot in my beloved motherland again, let’s do a little time traveling to one of my favorite hotels in Stockholm, Scandic Grand Central. These pictures were shot sometime in the beginning of the year but for some reason I never got around posting them.

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!

weekend photo diary

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!
