What you don’t see:
How extremely sweaty I am because it was one of the hottest days during the heat wave last summer.

We conquered the heat and walked all the way up to the Prince’s Palace. Which was absolutely worth it. Beautiful walk and a beautiful view on the top.

One thing I really wanted to see, that we skipped because the heat didn’t really encourage us to walk that far, was the Princess Grace Rose Garden. Definitely on my list for my next visit.

Stockholm Diaries

Have you ever fallen in love with a city?
Personally I have several cities that are close to my heart in their own special way, and Stockholm is definitely on that list. In March me and my girlfriends/super besties had a weekend getaway to this amazing city, where we got the taste of all the memorable experiences Stockholm had to offer!

Shopping
An important aspect of the trip was to get a lot of shopping done, and I mean, a LOT. One thing we all were determined on was finding the perfect thrift shop, and so we did, right at the top of the main street, Drottninggatan. Beyond Retro was the thrift shop of our dreams.

It’s safe to say that none of us left this shop empty handed. If you want to read more about the shop and it’s consept, you can check out their website here. Other than that you can also find all the big brands and stores in Stockholm, and we took the opportunity to visit all the shops that we don’t have in Norway, for example River Island and Sephora(my Sephora haul is up here). We were really disappointed when we found out that Urban Outfitters was temporarily removed, as we were all super hyped to shop there.

Food and drinks
Aren’t food and drinks the highlight of any vacation? First of all our hotel, Generator Stockholm had an amazing breakfast menu that we were super excited about! Lots of options that were cooked at the hotel kitchen. How yummy does this breakfast look?

For lunch on Saturday we felt like a sweet alternative and went to Café Muren in Gamla Stan/the Old Town and ordered belgian waffles with Nutella and cream, apple pie, hot chocolates plus the Swedish cake Kladdkaka. Meal of our dreams.

We also ate dinner at one of the Italian reastaurants in Gamla Stan on Friday. Amazing food and a really lovely waiter who was super excited to show us his Norwegian skills as he had actually lived in Oslo! Gamla Stan is a really lovely destination if you’re looking for a place to have your dinner in Stockholm. The small medieval streets and houses are filled with restaurant options!

Saturday, we felt like Asian for dinner and found the perfect place not far from our hotel in the city center. Szechuan beef and chicken, sushi and a lovely vegetarian Pad Thai for our main meal and then for starters edamame(soy beans) in sea salt and yummy vegetarian dumplings! A dinner success! After dinner on Saturday we decided to explore Stockholms nightlife. We started with pre-drinks and girly chats at the hotel room before we made our way to Stureplan, the party capital of Stockholm, haha. The night was seriously so much fun. There is something special about being out with your absolute best friends!

Sunday, we decided to go for Italian again, just because why not! We went to this Italian restaurant called “Flames”, where I’m not kidding when I say the food was amazing! First they gave us free bread with olive paste for starters, ka-ching! Then for the main course we had different kinds of pasta and Elise had the most amazing Chevre and Honey pizza, it was so divine that the rest of us stole a good piece of it, haha.

Culture
We also paid a visit to the Modern museum/Moderna museet, which is a museum for modern and contemporary art located on the island of Skeppsholmen, which is very central. There were all sorts of exhibitions you could see, but we chose to walk through “The Collection”, including key works by artists like Picasso, Matisse, Warhol, Dali etc. This exhibition was free as well and there was so much to see!

After being at the museum we decided to have a little photoshoot with beautiful city backdrops:

OOTD: The Perfect Coat

Hello, I hope you are all having a lovely start to the week!

To me, it is a week full of studying. I feel like I have so much work to do and I don’t really know where to start. I have been reading and making notes about ‘Motivation and Emotion’ since about 11 am though, so I feel like I’ve been a little bit productive. Anyways, you probably didn’t click this post to hear me complain about uni. Here is my outfit of the day:

| Coat – URBAN | Turtleneck – My mothers closet | Jeans – BIKBOK | Shoes – PAVEMENT | Bag – MICHAEL KORS |

I am wearing my coat from Urban(not Urban Outfitters) which was kind of an impulsive buy from my side last year, and I am so happy I bought it. I got a tip from a friend that they had up to 50% off all their coats, so I just had to have one – what a bargainnn. I have worn it ever since. It is quite thick so you can wear it throughout the winter, but it is also perfect for fall. And I absolutely love the color(is grey a color, haha?)

My Michael Kors bag is the only designer bag I own. I bought it 3 years ago in New York. I have a really ambivalent relationship with this bag. Some days I love it, some days I’m not so fond of it. I think I grew a bit tired when every other girl in high school wore it too. And I don’t like to look the same as everyone, haha. But I do like this bag. I’m really glad I went for the color that I did, though, it’s such a classic and will never really go out of style. It is also a nice medium sized bag that fits a lot.

For the first time since I got it I am not wearing my Kylie lipstick, haha. I still really wanted to wear it, as it would match everything perfectly, but I decided to be brave and switch things up a bit. Therefore I went for the NYX lingerie in the shade ‘Embellishment’ instead. And yes, my hair is in a bun, don’t we all have those days? Haha.

Now I’m gonna treat myself to a beetroot-burger, say whaat? I think it’s gonna taste really good actually. Hope you are all having a wonderful evening. ♥
