My weekend in pictures – Karlstad edition

20/06/2017

Oh what a wonderful long weekend I had! Me and G flew to Stockholm, spent a few hours walking around the beautiful city, had burgers at Vigårda and later took the train to my hometown, Karlstad. Vigårda has some delicious burgers! The train took about 3 hours (couple of episodes of House of Cards season 5) and we went straight to bed. The next morning we made a wonderful breakfast spread, nom nom We then got ready to meet my…

Pho Bo – one of my fave soups!

29/11/2016

Growing up this was a standard meal at home. While my friends was being served meatballs and potatoes I got noodle soup. I remember being so frustrated and wanting the same boring meals as them, haha. Now my favourite thing about coming home is my mom’s food.   She normally cooks the broth for HOURS – hence why I never make it.. only mothers have that kind of patience :’) rice noodles <3 Stuff to put in the soup <3 Me and mumzie Aaaahhhhh Aaaaahhhh x…

Julmarknad på Alsters Herrgård

27/11/2016

Translation: Christmas market at Alsters Manor My family home is just outside the “centre” and we’ve got a lovely manor nearby which hosts a christmas market every year.

They’ve got stalls selling locally produced food, plants, local artists selling their handmade items and there’s obviously glögg (mulled wine) as well.Secret route through the woods  The beautiful manor where there’s a café…

Girls night in

27/11/2016

I’m the type of person who wants all my friends to know each other and I say “the more the merrier” all the time, but this is quite difficult as my friends all live in various countries. I got to know Charlotte and Anja separately but for the last few occasions I’ve been home we’ve met all three of us. Anja was kind enough to host at her wonderful pinterest-like apartment and we had mulled wine, red wine, cheese, biscuits,…

Br. Olssons Elektriska

22/06/2016

Before travelling I googled new restaurants in Karlstad (my hometown). The one that kept popping up with amazing reviews was Br. Olssons Elektriska, a new restaurant in the city centre. Back in 1933 there was an actual electrical company by two brothers with the same name in the very same spot and the “current” brothers, originally from a small town near Karlstad, decided to go for a retro design throughout the restaurant and bar and add Elektriska to their name.…

Sunshine and museum visit

22/06/2016

On Monday we woke up bright and early and the sun was finally shining! As some of you know I absolutely love breakfast and especially hotel breakfasts. I would genuinely pay to eat breakfast at a hotel any day of the week.. if I could afford it, haha. It’s something about having lots of choices.. yum.  After breakfast we watched an episode or two of House of Cards (if you haven’t seen it, please do!) and I got ready to…

Catch up at Pinchos and apartment goals

22/06/2016

I’ve always said; once you move country you truly realise who your real friends are. I’ve moved countries 4 times by now and my circle is getting smaller and smaller which I genuinely don’t mind as I only want real and good hearted people around me. I don’t have that many friends left in my hometown as many now live in bigger cities or abroad but on Sunday evening we met up with a few who are 🙂 Anja, her…
