Mango my way is a perfect after tennis snack!

On Tuesdays and Fridays I play tennis at 7AM. It is a real work out and I come home exhausted, happy and very hungry. My favourite snack at the moment is a bowl of light vanilla yoghurt with fresh mango. Mango has such a unique and lovely taste and it goes really well with food and salads as well, not only as a breakfast treat.

silver on my wrist

My favourite silver in always on my wrist!

I love my combination of silver bracelets and I wear all of them together most days. Sometimes I remove one but never my sweet silver bead bracelet from Tiffany & Co. Whether I am swimming in Greek salt water or playing tennis it is always there. I got the Twosome Cuff  from Efva Attling at Christmas and I love that the two linked rings are different, one square and one rounded. My latest addition is the Clic H bracelet in black enamel from Hermès. So in love with it, there are many combination to choose from and I really got it right, for me, with the black and the classic H. Always on my wrist!

Here is my weekend in pictures!

After a fully packed weekend last week. (wedding and celebration of my mother’s 80th birthday in Mallorca) we had a soft and lovely calm weekend this week.  Just enjoying the family and attending sports events. Nelli had karate on Saturday. I love how both my girls are so hooked on karate this fall. Such a great way to exercise and perfect with the discipline. I also feel safe that they are learning to defend themselves. As the autumn has arrived in Sweden we had a cosy family evening on Saturday, watching the new Jungle Book movie, great family movie by the way, and lighting a fire in the fire place. Hannes had two soccer games today. He was goal keeper in both games and they won both! Great job my beautiful goalie! He even got the green card from the opponents, in the second game, meaning he was best team and fair play player!

I wish you a hunky Friday!

Wishing you a happy Friday with stunning AW 16/17 from Hunkydory. I just love the long bomber in blue and the knitted pieces are so right for the long dark Swedish an European winter. The oversized knitted dress is really making a comeback and even my nine year old is screaming for a roll down polo neck sweater so then you just know you have to have it! I have always loved oversized items and details so the huge pocket on the pale knit is just up my alley.

Dressed for success!

This is what the family looked like at my brother-in-law’s wedding on Saturday. We all loved getting dressed up for the occasion and the weather was with us. I love the girl’s dresses, the were dressed alike as they were the flower girls, I found the dresses at H&M in Greece this summer. I have not seen it in Sweden and they don’t sell it online. Such a beautiful pale colour. And doesn’t hannes look handsome in his tail coat? In the last picture you see the happy couple kissing as well as Ella and Nelli in front of the horse and carriage ride.

It is a wedding weekend!

This weekend my brother-in-law is getting married. We have a lot of family and friends coming from afar so yesterday we hosted a pre-wedding party at our house. We added and extension tent to the house and it looked lovely. Today is the big day and I am wearing a dreamy dress a bit Egyptian inspired, so flowy and long. The weather is stunning but with a bite so I will have to wear a coat with it to and from church. The girls are flower girls and my Hannes is the ring carrier, so sweet!

My Friday look!

I have several leather jackets in different colours. And I always get so happy when I put on my old and worn tanned jacket. It just puts a smile on my face. I bought it years ago in a Replay store in Sofia. I love all the detail stitchings and that the colour just gets better with age. I am in my heart a brown kind of girl so maybe that is why it feels like the sun is shining when I wear it. Today with a new fav v-neck tee from Weekday (excellent value for money) and denim from Zara. I am so happy with my tassel and suede boots from H&M Premium Quality, a very good seasonal buy! Happy Friday everyone!

A sweet treat!

No matter if you live in Stockholm or just visiting. If you love design and have a sweet tooth you have to have an Afternoon tea at Svenskt Tenn. It is delicious and so beautiful. First of all take a stroll in the store and fall in love with all the amazing fabrics and design elements. Then go upstairs and sit down for an hour or two in their pretty Tea Room, order the Afternoon tea and enjoy! The perfect girl date or why not invite your mother. Book a table in advance because there are not many and that is part of the charm.

It was such a beautiful tennis morning today!

So wonderful to still be able to walk up to the tennis tent bare legged! We are having a stunning September in Stockholm. Although I am a bit sad to see my used-to-be tanned legs  getting back to a normal pale colour. But don’t despair, we are going to Mallorca Sunday-Thursday, celebrating my mother’s 80th birthday, so hopefully I will get some sun! I bought a new tennis skirt the other day, same model as my grey one but in a nice petrol colour. Love it!

A little Sunday best of budget!

A nice black polo neck sweater is a must for the fall and actually, every fall! This is a great choice, merino wool from H&M Premium Quality Products. Wear it with skinny or flared denim, leather pants or a skirt. It works for all favourite styles. Finish off the look with a leather jacket, favourite boots or, for a more casual feeling, well worn sneakers.

Decorate your home with love!

I love decorating that is why I started the company meandmyprint.com. I design all the prints and my husband takes care of the sales. Our children have joined in and come up with loads of inspiration especially for the children section. We have now a large number of prints and two of them you see in this picture, our Stockholm print with coordinates and famous landmarks as well as the Swedish version of “home sweet home”. I love sharing some pictures of my home with you. At the moment we only ship to Swedish clients but you can always email to see if we can find a solution.

candles and brass
A current obsession of mine is candle holders in brass!

I am so happy with my cactuses on the kitchen table and was glad to see that they are back in store at H&M Home. They now sell a whole zoo! A few weeks ago I fell in love with the monkey but my husband would declare me nuts if I came home with those as well. If you like horses or bears you have no excuse and I seriously love the palm tree. All perfect options in creating that cosy autumn atmosphere.

My favourites from the H&M Studio Collection!

I am a fan of the small capsule collections that H&M put on. The Studio Collections always bring something extra with good quality to put in you wardrobe. These are my favourites from the fall collection. I love the light grey velvet jacket and would not mind the pants that go with it either. A velvet suit is so in fashion now and so comfortable yet elegant. Very easy to dress up or down so therefor extremely versatile and wearable. The velvet and satin dress is really not my normal colour choice but it is different and again elegant and versatile. I is hard for me to resist a nice pair of cowboy boots and these snake ones are to die for, the also come in read if that is a colour of your preference. Happy shopping, but hurry up because the pieces normally sell out quickly!

It’s lunch time!

I usually eat a quick lunch, often one of my famous avocado sandwiches, but sometimes it is really nice to go out for lunch. A wonderful new place has opened just a few minutes from my house (and office). It is called Triften and it has such a nice ambience. Soft but rustic interiors and very friendly staff. Best of all the food is stunning! They have several alternatives on their daily lunch menu. Before the meal you get a little taste of the Soup of the day, today it was carrot soup with ginger and chili, I told you soon tasty right? I had the fish and it was delicious. So if you are passing by Täby, north of Stockholm any day soon – try it!

My new snack obsession!

Twice a week I have the best ever mornings. I play tennis at 07.00 with the a great coach and brilliant friends. It is social but most of all stunning workout we all want to get better and push each other to greatness. Really heavy workout and I come home a few minutes after 8. After the shower I am in need of a snack and lots of water. I love my yoghurt with blueberries but lately I have a new obsession – yellow pepper! So fresh, yummy and also nutritious! Great combo! New saying: one pepper a day keeps the doctor away !

Something old and something new!

Yesterday we had a family BBQ at our house celebrating my father-in-law’s 72nd birthday. My husband’s brothers with families were here. My sweet sister-in-law brought me a beautiful bouquet of eucalyptus. In my interior design I love matching old and new it brings a warm and homy feeling. I put the new eucalyptus stems in this old Rörstrand pot that I got from my mother. It has been in the family for ages and has patina and character.

Casual in cardigan!

I love my new cardigan from Denham the Jean Maker. I have several cardigans (my husband doesn’t know how many :)) but they are mostly monochrome in colour, black, grey, bordeaux etc. I love that this one is so different, it is almost a denim look. I also love the white trimmings and since it is a really heavy knit the cardigan moves beautifully. It was on sale at JC Ace in Mall of Scandinavia in Stockholm, a great store with many fun brands. When I looked up the web site I fell in love with the these golden ear rings.
