Before going home for Christmas, me and Sanna wanted to have afternoon tea. After some research, we found ANT at Radisson Blu Edwardian Hampshire Hotel. I've had Afternoon tea two times before and I loved it. It's always presented in a lovely way and very tasty. When we got our ANT tray, we also ended up buying some additional prosecco, because why not?

We both had some Christmas gifts we needed to buy, so after the ANT we went to Oxford Street to check off the last gifts on the list. Over all, I had a really nice time today.

Christmas baking is maybe one of the best things about Christmas. I love baking and this time of year it really puts me in the x mas spirit! After I got ready, I took the bus to Clapham Junction and met up with Johanna x2. Side note: the weather was mad today. It was the first time I seen that amount of rain that was pouring down on us on our way to Johannas house since I moved here. Absolutely bonkers. After catching up with some traditional julmust and some julskum we began to bake. For our gingerbread, we made all types of interesting shapes. Donald Trump, The feminist sign and Big ben among others.

This is Donald Trump if you didn't got that. I needed to crop a bit offensive bit out, but if you've seen the viral video of him, y'all know what he's grabbing lol.

Guess who’s back, back again? Me! Yes, I know it’s been a while. I’ve been sick and haven’t had the energy to do anything. I was in my bed all of my spare time last week and it wasn’t fun. I’m finally back on my feet and I celebrated that with going to the gym. After my workout, I walked through the shopping center and bought this years first Christmas gift. So excited for Christmas. This year is going to be extra special, because I get to celebrate some here and at home. Christmas overload and I’m not complaining.

I'm back home from my amazing trip to NY. These New York posts will be divided up in parts, so they won't be too long and so I get to tell you the most out of my trip. We arrived on Thursday, but didn't really do anything more that day then settling in the apartment. The flight was 8 hours, so I was pretty tired when we landed. On Friday, we had a few things planned for the day. We started with Times Square. The apartment we’re staying in is located very close to Times Square, so it was just a 5 minuets walk. It felt so unreal seeing it in real life. It's breath taking.

We continued to Central Park and stopped for lunch at the Boat House restaurant. A lovely place with a view over a pond. Central Park is huge, if you compare it to Hyde park. In a big city like NY, to have that size of a park in the middle of everything is just beautiful.

Yesterday, me and my friend Johanna planned to go to Camden Market, but we both felt like we didn't have the energy. We decided to go there today instead. The weather was on our side, so we could enjoy some sunlight and blue skies. There was one café in the market with super cozy aesthetics, so we stopped there for tea and baked goods. Later on, Sandra, a german au pair joined us in our market stroll. The market gave me a lot of inspiration for my Christmas shopping. Christmas is getting closer and that means that I need to start figure out what to buy this Christmas - which is very exciting.

Today, I had a cozy brunch date with Lea. (Sometime I wonder how much money I've spent on food since I moved to London. My guess is a lot haha) She is also an au pair close by where I live. It's always nice meeting people who are easy to talk to and in this case, we literally talked about everything. Among other things, some exciting plans for next spring (!!) After a lovely afternoon, I managed to get changed into my workout gear and get myself to the gym. Just because I went there later than I normally go, I thought that it would be crowded, but surprisingly not! The rest of the day was spent being a bit less productive, very relaxing.

I’ve realized, that i’m not a daily blogger, but it’s fine, cause here I am. This weekend has been so fun. On Friday I went out with some friends to a 90s/00s party. I had so much fun and you can never get enough of Spice Girls right? My feet were in so much pain due to all the dancing when I got home, but it was totally worth it! On Saturday I met up with my bestfriend and her family who were visiting for lunch. It’s always so fun meeting people from back home. Meeting her family made me so excited about soon meeting my own family. Later that same day, me and Johanna went to the cinema and saw “bad moms at christmas”. I didn’t have high expectations at all, but let me tell you that I haven't laughed so much at a movie in a long time. I recommend everyone to see it.

(We went for Wagamama after the cinema)

I’ve wanted to go to Hillsong since I got here, so today I finally went there with Mona. I loved the service. The speaker was hilarious and challenging at the same time. I was very inspired by him. Me and some girls decided to go and experience bonfire night in Victoria Park, so before I left Tottenham Court Road (aka the location for Hillsong) I stopped by Primark to buy a sweater cause the weather here is starting to get sooooo cold. The bonfire night was amazing. It felt like new year's eve, due to the spectacular firework show. The way that they paired it with music made it even more fun to watch.

This is the last recap from my half term I promise. The last day, aka Sunday, Me and Johanna went to see Notting Hill for the first time. Notting Hill is one of those places in London you have to visit. A lot due to their colorful houses and the famous scenery from the movie Notting Hill. After some google searches we both found the blue door and the bookshop. We also got some pictures of the beautiful houses. The weather was on our side, so we had sunshine all day.


Deciding what to eat is always a struggle, but we found a cute little tapas place and had a great lunch. The place was called Pix and wasn't too pricey. Later on, we met up with our other friend Johanna for some coffee. In summary, a great Sunday.

I didn't want to make one super long post about half term, so here is part 2. When Saturday arrived, I already had plans to go to MCM ComicCon in London with Hanna and Mona. If you don't now what ComicCon is, it's basically this: "MCM Comic Con events are the UK and Ireland’s and most exciting pop culture shows, and the only UK based shows that bring together such a broad scope of popular culture categories including; Movies, Gaming, Comics, Anime, Television, Gadgets, Clothing and Toys." Attending this year's ComicCon was Andrew Scott. He is the actor who play Moriarty in the Sherlock TV-series. The way he portray Moriarty is genius. Just because he was coming, I was pretty much sold on going as well... hehe. It was more fun going to a convention than I thought and I ended up having a really nice time. I also ended up meeting Kick the PJ, aka one youtuber I really like watching. After the convention, me and my friends ended up going to Westfields in Stratford for another dinner together. We ate at gourmet burger kitchen and I recommend everyone going there, cause the food was outstanding.

I've had a bit of a brake from blogging the last couple of days, but now I'm back again. It's been half term this week, so the girls (my host kids) and my host mom has been away. Which means that I've been off duty this week. During the days I've been free from work I've done a lot of fun things. My friend Hanna was visiting from Sweden, so we met up on Thursday and had a lovely shopping day together. Later that same day, Mona joined us for a delicious dinner at Jamie's italian.


On Friday, I met my Swedish friend Klara. Klara's also an au pair in London. Just because we live on opposite sides of London, we had not yet met each other since we moved here. It was super nice just hanging out together and catching up with each others lives.We stopped for ice cream at a really cute ice cream shop. They had amazing ice cream (!?)
