Midsummer, also known as the summer solstice. Scientifically, that means that Earth’s northern pole was as tilted toward the sun as it’s going to be all year.
Sweden marks today with big celebrations, and for the first time I’m heading to the north of sweden to celebrate the Swedish “Midsommar” and to soak up the sun in the countryside, alongside the lake.
I might learn how to dance like a frog lolllll and of course getting exceptionally drunk is something of a Midsummer classic 😀
But for now I will enjoy the train trip and soon I’m surrounded with friends and dogs to celebrate the sun. XOXO
Beauty exists within our strength. Two years and half ago I booked a ticket to Sweden knowing that trip will change my life. But I always believed to do what I want and not follow any rules.
Some of us who come to live here feels that they obliged to adopt almost immediately the Swedish way, others are honed over months or years.
In the morning I get up early, drink my coffee, dress up and head to work. I usually eat my breakfast on the way.
I love hot tea especially green tea, but also like to buy the herbal, licorice or the peppermint ones.
Still I try to make every day looks different than the day before. For example social media for me isn’t just a profession, it is my passion. It is all me! Sometimes I will post something in few hours or on a daily basis, but then I could go dark for a week.
I like fashion and like to dress up, I love to shop even if I was not that much attracted to big brands. I’d rather have items that fit well in my wardrobe and last for long timer. one my icons is Audrey Hepburn, ya she was utterly chic and maintained such a fresh, youthful look. Oh her brows were epic and dressed simply but left a huge effect.
The day is coming to an end and it has been so much fun to see many of my friends.
Some friends just arrived to Stockholm and others will leave in no time. It feels weird to not be able to say to one of best friends “see you tomorrow” but I will be looking forward to seeing him in the near future.
Have a nice night lovely people! XOXO

I spent my weekend walking in the city not believing that I am living in this city.
I moved to stockholm in January 2015 and time just flew.
I have been suffering from the hay-fever symptoms for over 3 months. The pollen is killing me! My eyes are itchy, my nose is blocked and I can’t breath well.
The antihistamine aren’t working anymore but as I can’t take this no more, I decided to enjoy the sunny weekend no matter what.
I went for FIKA with my friend then hopped into town for some errands and today I had some Lebanese food, wine and shisha under the sun with my boyfriend.
Tomorrow I will be back to work but soon gonna celebrate my birthday with my beloved ones.
Hope you had a lovely weekend too! LOVE
