So I think it's quite obvious I have a favorite café which I love to frequently go to. Balck has won me over with there amazing coffee and great service but I also love trying new places. So today my bff Sanna and I took a lovely walk in the spring sun to a little shop a bit outside of centrum called Grått. There they have all kind of nice design and home internal which you can purchase and also a small Café part where they had some amazing raw food sweets!

I choose this Matcha Lime cake which was just to good to be true, so sweet even though it a really healthy treat. I love raw food and wish I ate more. It should really be on my list to learn more of, I just need to find me some nice recipes to get started!

The Café was located in the middle of a residential area and I probably would never have found it if Sanna hadn't known about it. This goes for a lot of things in this city. I still feel rather new to this city even though I've lived here for almost three years now. When must one stop consider themselves as new in town? Not yet for me at least. There are still so much I haven't discovered yet and I'm looking forward to finding more hidden gems!

This was the outfit from todays outing and these are the trousers from Zara I talked about in my post from last weekend. I'm still completely in love with them. I love how they flow when I'm walking and they don't feel constricting like some trousers does. They will definitely be one of my key pieces this spring.

I would have chosen an other shoe to this outfit on an other day, probably some high heels but sense we where going to walk quite a lot today I shoes a much more comfortable shoe which still worked in my opinion. I love to see if I could bring in a little more color next time too, maybe a click of yellow or pink, but we'll have to wait and see!

This weekend my mom, my little sister and I went up to Stockholm! It's been far to long sense I've been to Stockholm but it always seems so homey to me. Maybe because it's where I'm born and where my mothers family is from. So I've spent enough time there as a child. I've always dreamed about moving back one day because I like big cities! I like places with fast paces and Stockholm has that while not feeling all to big. It's still so green with all it's parks and trees which I love. It's also so beautiful down towards the water. But we'll have to wait and see if I ever move back, right now it feels kind of far of.

We decided to do some shopping sense we where up here. We went to Zara, Lush, Zephora, Mac and more and I managed to not spend everything I own XD But I did buy a pair of trousers I've wanted from Zara and some lotions and scubs from lush. These are all things I've really wanted so I don't feel like the money was wasted!

I've been eyeing the trousers for week online but not been sure what size to order them in. I never trust shopping for trousers online, so it was nice being able to try them on and find the perfect fit.

The one thing I don't like about Stockholm is just HOW much people there are ( I know it's a big city and there are bound to be more people) and sense the midseason sales just started the city was buzzing. The line to try on clothes where ridiculous, but we Swedes are good at standing in lines so... no but it's something I'm glad isn't much of a problem on Kalmar. Sometimes living in a smaller city has its perks

Though the sun was shining it was cold and pretty windy outside. I'm really hoping for some proper spring weather so I can begin to bring out my lighter jacket. I have a few I've been dying to wear again as well as a new one I'm in love with! Not that I don't love this coat! I've been in love with it ever sense I go got around christmas! It's very nice and warm. But I'm really ready for a change now.

Afterwards my sister and I went to my grandma sense my mother was going to a celebration that night. It was a very cozy evening with me and my sister trying to teach our grandma Instagram so she can keep up better with what we are doing. It was nice to see how happy she was once she started to get a hang of it.

Now it's nice to be back home in my own bed. I'm gonna pack away my new stuff and then get some needed rest to restore my energy for this new week!

Is it only me or has this week flown by? I mean it's Friday tomorrow but it feels like Yesterday was Monday XD Did we skip a day or two?

Anyway todays been a super day! I woke up before my alarm and decided to go for a run before my Yoga practice. So I was out running at 6:30 am which left me with a rather long morning I could do what ever I needed with. I did some packing and cleaning sense I'm going away this weekend and don't want to come home to a mess.

Then it was of to work! Which was uneventful. It was just a very slow day which could be nice some days but was just rather boring today. It made me feel a little useless.

Then I went shopping for a birthday present for my little sisters 18th birthday which will be coming up soon. I found what I think is a pretty great present but now I have to wait and see if she likes it. I've always think it's hard getting people gifts because I'm always unsure if they'll like them or not. But I'm pretty happy this time!

sense I was out shopping I obviously had to meet up with my bff Sanna for a cup of coffee for our favorite place Balck coffee! Per usual the coffee was perfect and we had loads of laughter. It's always such a blast hanging out with Sanna!

For once I had my camera with me so I got some nice photos. I should be better at brining it with me when I'm going places! I'm really gonna try!

Also I got myself an eye cream sense I've been feeling so heavy and dry under my eyes. I love my Clinique foundation so I hope I'll like this one as well. I've only heard good things about it!

I thought I should do a little compilation of my current favourite beauty products! These are some of the things I love and are currently using way to much, also #nosponse


The first one is my new Anastasia Beverly hills modern renaissance eyeshadow palette. I'm completely in love with it. I would have gotten it way sooner but it's been really hard to get in Sweden lately. Lucky me my mom got it for me when she was in the USA not to long ago and I love it so, so much.
The colours are lovely and so pigmented and I just love playing around with new combinations.

This BB cream for hair is really amazing! It's a leave in product which I like to put in my hair after a shower while my hair is still slightly wet. It gives my hair a nice shine, softness and keeps the frizz manageable. sense I have rather thick hair with natural curls I already have quite the volume to my natural hair so I don't like it to also be frizzy XD

I just have to be careful not to use to much, because then my hair just ends up not looking washed. Only a tiny amount is needed. I usually apply some to my roots and then a little top the tips of my hair as well.

This Rose water facial mist from Tromborg is my 1# favorite at the moment, I've been in loved with it ever sense I brought it a couple of weeks ago at Kicks. It's super refreshing to just use as an moisturizer or to have as a finish for your make-up. When I use it as a moisturizer (note that it isn't the only thing I use, just that I love using it the last thing I do before bed) I usually spray my face twice, just to really get an amazing effect. I also Just love the smell of it, it's really soft and nice and makes my face feel amazing!

This is my current foundation and I have been using it ever sense summer but it's still the best foundations I've had. It's a bit more pricy then what I used to look at for foundations (not like crazy much just a little bit more than I used to) But in summer I work outside with a lot of people and I need a foundation that will hold up all day and look like I'm wearing nothing so I was ready to go up in price to find that.

So I went and asked what they would recommend at a makeup store and they guided me to this Clinique foundation. It's soft, looks natural and don't clog up your pores. And it also last much longer than it look like it should so that's a bonus!

I've just added this organic toner from Naobay to my night routine and I really like it. My old toner has started to irritate my skin slightly so I knew I had to swish it up. and I really, really like this one. It really calm my skin down after a long day, it almost feel cold to put on to the skin which feels amazing!

Did I ends this week in the best way, HELL YEAH! Me and Sanna got us some veggie sushi and sat in my room just chilling and eating. Catching up on the week. It was so cozy!

I love that it was just so simple, that it doesn't have to be anything more to be a really good time. Now I just have to get ready for this week. I'm hoping it will be less stressful.

It's weekend again and wow was I ready for it this week. It's been super crazy at work all week long, loads of my coworkers have been sick and we've had to try and just get this week to somehow work. So I really feel like taking care of myself this weekend.

So I started this Saturday greatly by making Raspberry and Lemon scones for myself, my mom and her boyfriend. They turned out to be super good and I really feel like I'll be making them again soon. Sense I only eat suger on Saturdays I always feel like treating myself to something nice for breakfast.

I don't like calling Saturdays my "cheat day" because it doesn't feel like cheating. It feel like a treat day! That should be the name for it! Saturdays are my treat day. I still try to not eat an insane amount of suger just because I can but instead just eat what I would regularly do.

I think they turned out very nicely :)


Anyway after breakfast I headed out on the town to get myself some "treat myself" things. I got a couple sheet masks and eye patches to let my skin and eyes rest after a week of stress. In my, and so many others, case it's my skin that takes a lot of damage from stressing to much and it really has been showing this week. I've had a break out and the circles under my eyes are not to mess with. So tonight I'm gonna have my own home spa XD

I finished my trip with a cup of coffee at the always lovely Balck coffee shop. They really are the best place in town to get a nice cup of coffee. First thing that happened, the barista asked me if the rug I brought last week and we had talked about fitted nicely in my room. Then we talked a bit about the coffee and she ended up recommending a bean I hadn't tried before which was AMAZING! Also I got two cookies instead of one which I had ordered because she gave me a corner pice and thought I should have two because of it. Talk about taking care of your costumers, Thank you! I just love the service there, it's so home and nice!

Tomorrow My BFF Sanna is coming over for a Sushi dinner and I'm really looking forward to it! I bet it's gonna be an amazing end to this week!

This will be a list of some of my current favorite outfits for this spring. My list of favorite outfits are forever evolving but I tend to have a theme I adore for every season. This spring I feel like I'm going for a business cheek look. I've been buying mostly suit pants and skirts the last couple of weeks. I really love to play up on the "masculine" and "feminine" sides in an outfit.

I've also noticed I've been gravitating towards blue and grey tones this season oppose of last spring when I was really into the pink, but I've also just felt like brining in a lot of brightness into my closet, I'm really tired of winters darkness.

Anyway here's the outfits

This grainy photo is of one of my favorite outfits (I'm really sorry about the quality of this photo, It turns out I really have no better photo of this outfit even though I've worn it many times) It's super comfortable, the suit pants being very easy to move in. It's also very simple, just a black suit jacket, black low waisted suit pants and a white t-shirt. But it really has a professional feel to it and I love to dress it up with a pair of pumps and some sunglasses.

I also tend to wear it with a heavy lip, because I like the "feminine" lip color to be a contrast to the outfit which could be interred as "masculine" even though I don't tend to think of it that way. It's a nice outfit which makes me confident and comfortable at the same time!

I'm completely in love with this shirt at the moment! I love a good striped shirt and the fit and feel of this one is really nice! I got it on sale a couple of weeks ago and I haven't been able to stop wearing it. In this outfit I chose to unbutton more buttons then I usually do. I usually don't feel like showing to much skin when wearing this kind of shirt but the lace in my bralette was to cute for me to resist this time. Any other day I would have button up at least two more buttons.

But some how it's more okay to show of a bralette then a bra so I jumped onto that train.

Also I love the hat I'm wearing. Where I'm currently living it's quite windy sense it's on the coast so I rarely get to use hats but I love them so much and I think they bring a lot to an outfit.

Yes I'm very aware this is just as grainy as the last photo, The light in my room is really bad for selfies during winter/spring. I'll up my game I promise!

What is better then a over sized warm sweater in the early spring!

This slightly off white sweater has been one of my favorite prices this winter/spring. I wear it all the time! I love to pair it with a pair of fitted pants sense the sweater is so lose and I usually wear it with my favourite high heeled boots. It's simple, comfortable and looks very nice. It's an outfit that easy to dress both up and down with help of shoes and accessories.

And seems we just went back to full on winter outside I guess that I will have a lot of use for it even now. I probably have to pick up some of my warmer winter clothes for the next couple of days instead of the lighter clothing that I had begun to take out again. I guessed we called it a bit to soon on this one.

Winter is back! Or should I state that winter is here for the first time, sense we haven't had a proper winter this year. But I guess it was time now! We have got a little over 15 cm snow these last two days and it really doesn't look like it's stoping soon.

I don't really mind, I love sitting with a cup of tea looking out at the winter wonderland or taking walks down at the beach with the dog but it has made going to work harder. I can't take my bike in this kind of weather, SHOCKER! No but really I take my bike in almost all weather, rain, heavy wind what ever. But even I have to draw the line somewhere, and this is where I draw it. So I have ended up taking the buss instead sense it stops right outside my workplace. But the problem with this is that yesterday my buss stopped running for a couple of hours sense there was a car accident somewhere along the rout and I was stranded at work. Now this is what I fear with this kind of weather, that I won't make it in time for work because of traffic or not being able to get home. Thankfully my mother was finished at work around the same time as I so she could come and pick me up but it has left me worried for the next couple of days travel.

But I aslo got to built a snowman and snow castle yesterday so there's that! We'll have to wait and see how long this will last for, hopefully just a couple of days sense I'm ready for spring and warmer weather!

(I posted this over a week late yay me!) This weekend I spent with two of my absolute best friends. It was very nice sense they live hours away so we don't get to see each other all that often. So this weekend was well needed to say at least!

We spent it sightseeing and shopping. I got myself some new training equipment which I'm exited to start using in my training. Also got some cute space themed note books which where so nice and small, they fit perfectly into my hand bag so I will be carrying them with me all the time from now on. I just love to always have note books with me to write down what ever I'm thinking of.

One of the friends had won a lottery and she had gotten loads of gift cards at different stores around the city so we were running around trying to find her stuff she usually wouldn't buy for herself which was great. It gave her a nice chance to treat herself. And it almost felt like a treasure hunt!

On Saturday evening we went to see hidden figures a the cinema which was a great film. I love films based on real event because it always makes me want to reachers more and learn about our history and this was a story I'd heard nothing about before which is absurd sense I think based on what I've learned it should be common knowledge. You should get to read about it in school! I won't go into what it's about because there might be someone who wants to see it that doesn't want it to be spoiled but I highly recommend watching it!
