Let's continue the UK bonanza with another outfit from our stay in London. One thing I love about this city are all these beautiful houses everywhere. Black and white is always a winning combo. And spring, can you please come now? I can't wait to wear open heels and sandals again.

L'Antica Pizzeria da Michele

Remember the movie Eat, Pray, Love when Elisabeth Gilbert (played by Julia Roberts) says she's having a relationship with her pizza? Well, this is actually THE restaurant and destination if you too feel for a slice of love.

At the opening back in February 2017 it took hours to even get in and with only two varieties on the menu (margherita and marinara, both seen above) this place witnessed about something special. If you ask me, it sure was. I had the double buffalo mozzarella and I'm telling you – I was just as mesmerized as Elisabeth. These pizzas are heavenly!

Oh, and when you're in the neighborhood! 
There's a great designer consignment boutique, Strut, just a two minute walk away, well worth a visit. I'll show you what I brought to the fitting room in another post...


Me at Stonehenge. Finally I could tick them off my bucket list. Lucky girl!

I so wished to walk closer, but unfortunately the stone circle is roped off. This is about the closest you get. 

The mandatory stroll in St Albans Cathedral. Here you can spend hours admiring all the incredible artwork.  –  This cottage though. Can it get more classic?

These halloumi sticks at Bill's. Food porn 2.0!  –  Another must that doesn't need any further explanation. 
This time at The Wellington. Yum!

London, baby!  –  ... where I ran between all these designer consignment shops. A medal to bf who coped and carried on. Sadly no scoop this time. 

London Eye. The height is beyond belief. Such a cool and indescribable feeling though. 
Go, go, go if you get the change! 

All these amazing window displays... Here's Louis Vuitton's at Harrods. –  Vintage gems in Portobello.

More candy coloured houses, please!

Strolled through the green tunnel in Princess Diana's Memorial Garden.

Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park further away. 

Guy Fawkes Night in Verulamium Park, St Albans. The party continued at Ye Olde Fighting Cocks. –  The Vintage Emporium in St Albans. This treasure trove is a must visit if you love rare vintage pieces. I got lost for hours...

Last night we went to Côte where I had the most lovely seabass.  –  Bye for this time! 

Better late than ever, right? Here's a few pics from our two weeks in England back in October/November(!). Everyone says it always rainy, but we were so lucky with only one or two days of that. I bring the sunshine where I go, la la la... Enjoy! xx

Moving Mind

While I'm counting the days to Stockholm I've been having a few things on my mind that I would love to bring in my load.

Maybe this t-shirt is spot on how a country side girl (read me) feel after a while in the hectic city?
'Give Me Some Space' T-shirt from DEDICATED.

My wallet is falling apart. This affordable cutie would be the perfect replacement for my cash and cards.
'Karri' Wallet from MARIMEKKO.

I've been smelling on this candle everytime I've seen it in a store. Its scent has always mesmerized me, but though this I never got down to buying it. I love how scents have such strong association to people, places and memories so I'm thinking this would be a great moving in present to myself as it would forever symbolize this little adventure of mine.
Scented Candle 'Crips Champagne' from VOLUSPA.

Spring aka sneaker season is soon around the corner and right now I feel for a chunkier model on my feet.
'Air Force 1 Upstep' from NIKE.


It's not often I write about personal stuff over here, but due to my excitement I just can't resist sharing these news with you – in a few weeks I'm moving to Stockholm!

Still can't believe it's actually happening, but truth is I've been having this dream on and off for quite some years now – to try out the city life and live all by myself for once. We all know how fast those years fly and as I just recently turned 28(!) I felt it was now or never. Can't wait to see what our beautiful capital has to offer. At the same time I have to admit, as the home-loving lady I am, it's actually a bit heavy-hearted to leave my peaceful Norrland, my home and all my loved ones, but I guess that's what we all need sometimes – to do what scares us the most and just throw ourselves out there, don't you think?
