Some coffee and treats after a fun weekend...
We've been down in Tylösand over the weekend, me and my girlsquad from the good old days. We had so much fun, gonna tell you all about it. We're on our way back home now just stopped for a fika at Elin's parents summerhouse in Åsa. So cosy!
Back with Beccie <3
Haha crap, I just realized that this is like the only picture I took this weekend. Well I have one of our burger we ate for lunch on Saturday but how fun is that...so this ONE will have to do!
I met up with her late on Friday at Yaki-da after dropping of my things at a friends house and some glasses of wine. Yup there's my reason for being late Simon! Becca came straight from work from Mariestad, approximately 2 hours away from Gothenburg so she brought all of her stuff with her. We were just going to have a calm night anyways...
After some hugs we all walked up to the top floor at Yaki where the restaurant is. We had some wine and I got to meet Beccas friends from back home that lives in Gothenburg now and they got to meet two of mine. After a while we separated and my friends went to Port du Soleil, Madde went home and the rest of us continued to Lounge(s). The calm dinner escalated to a not so calm party haha, so much fun. After some drinks and shots (thank you boys!) we were all going hard on the top floor. Not a single move that couldn't be done and not even the plants were safe. I wish y'all could've seen Simons my story haha...
All of a sudden we were moving and payed a quick visit to Port where the party continued with orange hats and Hawaii necklaces. We ended the night with a kebabrulle a giggles in bed. Simon left so me, Becca and Andreas all cuddled up in his bed. It wasn't spacious, but we made it through the night. Just woke up a LITTLE hangover haha...
We had that burger I mentioned for breakfast/lunch and after that I left the crew to go buy a ticket and later see Håkan Hellström preform at Ullevi. I met up with the crew again after the concert but more about all that in the following post!
I'm actually back with Becca now for two days. She's leaving for New York again soon and have some time off from work so I decided to go visit her in her hometown. I took the train to Skövde earlier today and her brother picked me up so kindly. We all had a chill night at his with food and some episodes of Ballers. I don't know what we're doing tomorrow but I'm just happy to be back in her company. And talking about great company...million thanks to everyone involved this weekend for everything. Seriously had THE best time!
A Sunday in Smögen...
After a weekend of partying we decided to drive up the coast to Smögen last sunday. A band doing covers called Duojag was playing on sealodge later on the afternoon so we thought It was a perfect spot for a day trip. Luckily we had a driver that didn't party the night before so we could leave at a decent time and Elin could keep Ida, the driver, company while I could sleep in the backseat.
We started with some tanning on the cliffs followed by a late fish n' chips lunch at Göstas. So yummy! We walked over to sealodge to grab a beer and to sing and dance along to the music by Duojag. Elin has seen them preform a lot of times and me and Ida some. They delivered as usual. I was a little slow in the beginning but after a coffe in halftime I was going hard haha. We ended the day in the best way - with a dip in the ocean before we headed home. Such an awesome Sunday!
My two first full days back in Sweden...
So in case anyone didn't know - I've moved back to Sweden! Little bit earlier than expected but it feels so good to be back. Since I guess a lot of you will wonder I'm just gonna tell you right away that it didn't really work out the way I hoped with the family in Dallas so I decided to move out and quit. Due to other reasons I decided that I didn't want to rematch and rather move back home, so that's what I did. I had about three weeks of vacation in New Jersey/New York before I took the plane back and arrived Tuesday before lunch. I went straight to visit my grandparents and after that Elin and Julia came over to eat Makrill with potatoes and stuvad spenat haha, so yummy. My brother came later and joined us too. So cosy. I've been sleeping next to him the three nights I've been at home haha just like back in the days. Feels good to have him close. And my parents and friends of course. So excited to meet everyone. I didn't really tell anyone that I was coming back. It's been so much going on that I just felt that I needed some space at the end and rather "deal" with my Swedish friends and family when I got home if you know what I'm saying. Nothing against all you guys, you know I've missed you sooo much. 17 months away is a long time, but I just wanted to have the last time in the states to be all about being there and not focus too much about the future here in Sweden. You are all so nice so I know you'll understand. Wanted to tell you all the time that I was coming back!!!
We decided to go out with the boat on Wednesday since the weather was going to be really nice for a change. Yes I'm back talking about the weather haha...the whole family made it out but I don't know if I would count though since I spent most of the time sleeping. All this stress and then the jet lag has really knocked me out. I spent a lot of time sleeping in Jersey too...it was like I got hit by a train, couldn't get up...hopefully it'll go over soon. Well it's 4.30am now and I've been up for 2,5h so maybe not in coming days hehe. But when I wasn't sleeping we had a great time with some friends to our parents too. We ate yummy Swedish food, enjoyed the views and even went for a swim. It was very cold in the beginning but so much fun to jump and fresh to cool off. We were at an island called Utkäften that's right outside of Marstrand. An island we've been to many times since we were kids. We spent one night there before we made it back to the port and later the city to freshen up and change at my brothers new office. So cool that he got his own company and an office - he's only 21! He made me a coffee that I enjoyed before we walked in the beautiful evening to avenyn and Bar Himmel. We met up with one of his friends and ate a delicious dinner, salmon poké bowl for me, accompanied with some rosé.
A few friends of mine came later on and we enjoyed the beautiful sunset, apparently this one was like best night so far this summer! We caught up a little and planned more hangouts. Can't wait for more nights like this and to hug all of my friends again!!
Blessed to come home to a city, friends and family Iike this. I've missed you!
Breakfast at the corner, hangout at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge with Aida and Amanda and late night party at Marquee...
I started the day with the kids followed by a breakfast with Kathi and Cassie at the corner in Montclair. We went to Clifton after that to ship some boxes back to Sweden. I have too many things...I got ready and organized my room before I went to Brooklyn to visit Aida and Vip's new apartment - so beautiful! After that we went to dumbo to eat some Italian before we headed to a new hotel called 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge. Such a beautiful hotel and view. The view is just breathtaking.
Amanda went home and me and Aida went to her husbands restaurant Gran Morsi in Tribecca and later to a bar close to it with him for a drink. After midnight they went home and I to marquee. Had such a fun night with my crazy party people. Only smiles when they're around. Gonna miss them a lot.
Shoes Target / Skirt Primark / Top Wildfox / Jacket Zara / Bag Michael Kors
The two pink things I'm wearing here were vintage finds from a store in Dallas. I love both of them. But especially the shirt - the back is awesome! And the bag helps me making my outfits more fun!
These pictures where shot in Washington DC. Cassie helped me take some at the Lincoln memorial haha. So thankful that she puts up with me and all the posing and photos. Gonna miss her so much. But we'll def meet up in the future somewhere. Wouldn't mind if it were south of France.
Supergirl mode on!
Life puts you through a lot of challenges and the journey called life contains a lot of obstacles. Some expected and some surprising. As long as you stay true to yourself, trust your gut, believe in kindness and the truth you will get out of it stronger and richer.
Scarf Zara / Shirt H&M / Skirt Primark / Bag Michael Kors / Shoes Nordstrom Rack
Came up with this look the other day that I really liked. I bought this scarf when I first moved to New York and I haven't used it that much. I just loved the colors. You can't really tell on the picture but it's striped and are orange, navy, mint, burgundy, yellow and white. So easy to pair with almost everything. Was wearing it to the pool the other day with a black bikini and navy blue sparkly dress! Definitely a hot tip for summer. Takes any outfit to the next level.
