Some of you have already seen my apartment, but some things are different and finally we got some new shelves!

Christmas decorations should all be about candles and magic. There is no better way to welcome the holidays than focusing on what truly matters and turning your home into a magical place of joy!!

Hanging decorations to your windows can be a sweet initiative to feel the festive season.

Rembermer also that natural elements are also easily accessible, affordable, and make for great holiday centerpieces. Check out those lovely green and red cherry branches

These natural bundle brings an element of a fresh forest to your home décor. The branches with Green Berries add organic interest to its surroundings, while the red ones match the Christmas spirit.

For an enchanting display, place these branches in a nice vase 🙂

Mys to survive a swedish winter


Jasmine ElnadeemWhen you move from a hot country to a cold one like Sweden, you need to be extra positive in your thoughts.

Don’t expose yourself to the rain and wind until you freeze like hell. Think about all the wonderful things you are going to do when you get back indoors. Like: light candles, take a warm bath, drink hot chocolate, read a good novel, drink glögg by the open fireplace, bake or cook something delicious, get under the down-covers with your little cats, etc.

Swedish people survive their winter doing lots of Mysa.

Mysa is the Swedish word for enjoy oneself. We almost have this in English with the word snuggle, but if you’re gonna be mysering in Swedish, you can do it with someone, alone, or even in a café.

Ex: Ikväll ska jag mysa framför tv! (Tonight, I will cosy up in front of the tv!)

Oh, my swedish still sucks but I know the cozy words, hahahaha

Yes, the Swedes do get really tired of the darkness, rain and snow and they usually take at least one annual trip to sunny locations a year. However, they still hold a place in their hearts for these warm, cozy nights in front of the fireplace or candles when the storms are howling outside.

This weekend I won’t be doing any mysa, I will be more partying and dancing my ass off with my babe Jamie to celebrate her birthday, but you try to enjoy your mysa.

Winter is coming .. Sweden

Moving to a new country is a huge move and moving from Egypt to Sweden certainly presents lots of challenges.

Sweden offers a great deal of cultural and lifestyle options to new comers.

In the beginning you will feel that you can do lots in this country till the Swedish winter hits you. A very dark, very cold, yet very cozy, winter.

There are tough days when you will feel homesick, and you just don’t want to go outside. But, the hard lesson to learn is you have to go outside when the weather is nice, because it will be bad again. Find a happy or a dear friend who can ask you for a Fika date.

And who knows, maybe one day you will feel that you belong in Sweden.
