Midsommar – like a Swede!


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

Yesterday Vs. Today

Beautiful sunset in Cairo, Egypt

What a great time of year to have the opportunity to come back to my hometown, from the snow to the sunshine and palm trees! On top of that a chance to connect and network with some of my besties, old and new friends.

Yesterday I had my last day in Cairo before heading back to Stockholm and since the sun was shining, I decided to go for a last walk around the city.

My morning started with a breakfast at Pottery Cafe in Zamalek, then I went to have lunch with my family before I headed into town to take some photos of the sun. Vacay days flew so fast!!

When I got back it was time to pack my bags, have dinner with my friends, say goodbye and leave to the airport. So sad to say goodbye to those awesome friends.. But I will definitely see you soon!

From the flight I saw Stockholm covered  in snow like a winterland. So, another day with lots of snow and Cold! Ohhhhh I wish I could turn back in time and feel the sun on my face again.

Stockholm is that city which never stops, even in the middle of a snow storm. This year we have quite a cold winter.

Counting down to Christmas feels pretty anyway.

Now I will go to see my Swedish friends, and have some quality time with before the weekend finish.

Hugs & XOXO

You never really know what’s coming. A small wave, or maybe a big one. All you can really do is hope that when it comes, you can surf over it, instead of drown in its MONSTROSITY

I think it take years to develop your confidence and yes I feel more beautiful now at my 32 years old than I ever did in my twenties.

Hahahaha they say that women get more beautiful as time goes on. I think the more we get older the more we learn how to control our inner critic which stops us from glowing.

Recently I released that I love to have some good time with my beloved ones and to laugh a lot.

Another benefit of growing up and getting older is that your friendships are deepening, you decide to stay around those who respect you, don’t use you or take your friendship for granted.

I think after some tough time in my new home, I learned that the secret to a happy life is to not take anything too seriously and give zero time to self-doubt.

Sending Y’all some positive vibes, J

XOXO
