Dalarna, Sweden.

Hello my lovely readers. Sorry for bad blogging lately. Just been busy with enjoying life. I'm in Dalarna, a very beautiful but cold place. Our days consist of long walks, eating well and just..hanging out together. I've taken lots of pictures but when you go outside you got to be quick..after about 20 min in -20 degrees the camera stops working because of the cold, not nice. Tomorrow I'm off to next destination. Italy.

God Jul

Merry Christmas
to all my loved ones in Sweden and to all you people that celebrate Christmas today. I'm jealous. It's not the same celebrating on Christmas day.
Anyway what I wanted to show you is my amazing christmas presents from my very generous bosses. A gorgeus Anya Hindmarch purse and the lovely grey wool scarf from Designers Remix that I've had my eyes on for ages. I'm totally in love with them both. Thank you.

Turkey instead of Swedish meatballs

hello my lovelys. All set for Christmas? or still rushing around trying to find the last christmas pressies?
At the moment I'm just chillin in my kitchen with a cup of cinnamon tea, watching the people rushing around outside. I took a look at myself in photobooth and realized how pale I am. Like a white ghost that hasn't seen the sun for years, and too be honest feel abit like one aswell. Still abit dissapointed that I'm not going to Sweden for Christmas, but was lucky enough to get on a plane on the 26th instead. Anyway, it doesn't matter. It will be a Welsh Christmas instead. With pigs in blankets and turkey and the rest. And that I'm looking forward too.

Dear landlord.

This was delivered to us yesterday. A basket full of Christmas goodies. It was from our landlord to say Merry Christmas. He is a very nice man.

Ok mamma, It looks like your daughter is not coming home for Xmas. This sucks. Big Time.
It's the 20th today, and they've already decided to cancel my flight on Wednesday the 22nd. Great Optimism!

Dear reader,
I've been blogging for almost a year now. A year full of fun!. I've loved every single comment, email, feedback you've given me. So I would like to ask YOU guys for something.....mostly because I'm sooo curious about who you are!!

Are you a man or a woman? age? Where do you live? What do you do when you're not asleep? If you've got a blog, please link. I want to read it! Nothing would make me happier if you could take a minute of your time and tell me something about yourself xxx

Little Black Dress

When I run out of clean clothes I sometimes wear large t-shirts as dresses with black tights. Like today. On a freezing day like this I just keep my hat on all day. The heating is on full blast inside but for some reason my flat is like an igloo.

Let it Snow

Took a few pictures from my morning walk. It's really cold out there, my toes were icecold even in my ugly old Uggs. When I came home I made myself some hard bread sandwiches with egg and rocket. A favourite at the moment.

Good morning Saturday!

What a beautiful day, snow everywhere! Heard on the radio that Heathrow is a mess with delayed flights and cancellations. And BA has cancelled all their flights today. As much as I love the snow, it better disappear by Wednesday when it's my turn to fly.

I think I've probably got the best work place ever. The weekend starts right there! Wino and snacks Friday 16.30. ....
Have a great Friday night lovely readers... See you tomorrow. Now, I'm gonna watch Sex and the City 2 for the first time. I know, I'm probably the last one not to have seen that movie...

when it snows.

It's snowing in England. Big, fluffy beautiful things. Love it.

times like this

What's up with this time of the year? I get so lazy. I just wanna watch tv. And movies. And eat chocolate. And sleep. This is Not good.

Dear Zachary

Last night I watched this documentary on my laptop. It's an absolutely insane story. Usually I fall asleep to things if it's too late at night. Last night I didn't go to bed until 03.30. I couldn't believe this story. Download it NOW. It's shocking, watch the trailer.

Hey Blackberry I forgot you were a camera.

Wednesday dinner in Chequers. A roasted vegetable salad with halloumi. Mmmm love that cheese. My boyfriends mum is in town and she always spoils us. Forgot my camera at home, so this is what you get. Hope you've all had a great day and are having a nice evening.

Tuesday break

Do you want to try the best Chai Latte in this town? Go to Jika Jika. It's good. Extremely good.


I got some good stuff from Secret Santa on Saturday night. A lovely red Revlon lipstick, a nice tomato red nail varnish and a facemask. Perfect!!! And for all you people who doesn't know what a Secret Santa is check THIS out. I had never heard of it before moving to England.

the sky is grey

Took a walk early this morning. Felt like I needed a little bit of fresh air and to clear my head. Took a few pictures, although I feel like everything outside looks so grey. Really dull and grey. Seriously after christmas and new year I want spring! Trees going lime green, flower buds, birds singing. But right now, nature looks wet, grey and depressing.

Like or not?

Kate Bosworth got a lot of shit for wearing this dress at the Hollywood Style Awards. The Daily mail writes THIS. The thing is I really like it. And it's refreshing to see something different than the "normal" glam red carpet dress. This stands out more. Cool and relaxed. Anyway, Kate always looks great in anything she wears.


old picture from 2007
Today in Sweden we celebrate Lucia. I miss all these traditions, and Lucia is one of my absolute favourites. On Lucia we bake Lussekatter (Saffron buns) and drink mulled wine. And then we celebrate Saint Lucia with songs and performances. Lovely things. The picture above is old, didn't have time to make Lussekatter this year, and also it's impossible to find fresh yeast in this country, so I gave up on that idea. Anyway they're bloody delicious.

Christmas celebrations

Monday morning. This is going to be a good week! Here's a few pics from Saturday night.

I want my bacon.

Started my Sunday with making a big bacon and egg brunch. A much needed one. A bit tired after yesterdays festivities. Last night was so much fun. The great company, the food, the dancing, it couldn't have been any better. I'll put up a few pictures from last night later....just gonna erase about fifty of them.

xmas party

Xmas party 2010. Here we go! It's gonna be a loooong night.

going budget

Ok, I'm gonna give you all a great white wine budget tips. Eva's Vineyard. Hungarian. £3.99 in Waitrose.
Ok, so I'm not a wine expert but whatever, it tastes great, it really does, and it's cheap. Sometimes don't judge something by it's cover. I'm sure Sweden has got this one in their liquor and wine stores aswell. But do not worry. The bottle won't be opened until later. A warm up to tonight's Xmas party.

Only a bag of Ahlgrens bilar can make my bad mood go away. Thank god for Ikea. Hope you're all having a nice, warm Friday night.

Wednesday night

I'm off to bed and I'm taking Carey with me. She is the cutest. My Wednesday has been great, and interesting. Talking to inspiring people makes me want more out of life. Which is very good at the moment. My life.
