Life back in Sweden - Instagram Edition

What have I been up to lately? Because it seems like I've taken a small break from the blog? Fear not! I've just been adapting to life back in Sweden.

Three Lovely London Parks (That are not Hyde Park)

Before moving to London, I pictured myself with an iced latte and a good book, sitting on a bench or under a tree in Hyde Park. I told myself it'd be the perfect place for a day off, taking a break from the city, and so on. Even though I spent my first months living in Chelsea, that vision of me in the park never happened. I've spent numerous afternoons with friends powerwalking from my apartment in South West London to Hyde park, but when it comes to "taking a break from the city", Hyde Park wasn't always ideal.

My July Playlist

Is it just me, or do you also change your Spotify lists completely according to the seasons? Pretty much all year around my Spotify consists of moody, artistic, instrumental piece and eclectic songs. But now, when summer has (finally) arrived, those colourful and happy songs tend to sneak into my playlists.

My Ultimate Summer Essentials

Finally it feels like summer has arrived in Sweden. Since I got home, almost two months ago, the weather has been windy and not at all that warm. These past few days though, the weather has changed, and I can finally say that summer is here. With the warm and sunny weather comes the summery feelings, and I find myself reaching for some of my old summer favourites.

My Fitness Journey // How I Stay Motivated

Working out in one way or another has always been part of my lifestyle more or less. I've done everything from horse riding and pilates to boxing, running and lifting weights. But even though I enjoy it, there are days (or even weeks) when getting out of bed and go working out feels like the biggest challenge in life. For the past few months I've been lucky, and going to the gym has been what makes me go up every morning, but that's not what it's always been like.

4 Series to Binge Watch this Summer

I'd say I'm a professional when it comes to watching series. Once I start I can't seem to stop watching - instead, I tend to finish a season per week. The weather in Sweden hasn't been the best since I moved back home, and it looks like it's gonna stay this way. So watching series, drink tea and eat chocolate like it's winter all over again seems like my go-to summer plan.

My Future Home - Pinterest Edition

As the interior obsessive I am, I tend to spend a lot of time browsing through the "home decor" and "architecture" jungles on Pinterest. There is so much to discover, and I feel like I'm in need of an apartment or two to live out my dreams. Of course, that's not possible for a poor, recently-graduated-living-at-home like me. So therefor I stock up on inspirational pictures in my "Future Home" collection on Pinterest.
