Laksa on a pink table

Untitled

Last night I had a date with Johan at Santa Cantina to share this beautiful set up. Tofu with a chili dressing and laksa with seafood, chicken and tofu - so yummy.

Haven't made my own laksa for ages, about time to put one together soon. It's one of my favourite soups. Made it the first time 15 years ago, following this recipe and it's totally amazing.

Pictures of love

Untitled
What a week I had with my family! Every morning I woke up from the scent of coffee and got up to have a cup and a cinnamon bun with my mother. One and one woke up and all of a sudden we were all in the kitchen. This is my niece Lo, she loves to do make-up and we all got styled by her.

Untitled
When everyone was up, we made breakfast together.

Untitled
My plate one of the mornings.

Untitled
My mother getting her beauty treatment by Lo.

Untitled
Most of the time we were hanging out at the dining table together, playing Yatzy and cards, as it was raining heavily (Johan took this picture).

Untitled
Took the chance to eat fish and Swedish shrimp salad.

Untitled
Next up for make-up was my sister Lisette.

Untitled
This is Alice, my oldest niece, soon to be 14 years old. I love these kids like they are my own, they say I'm also their mother ;) Another comments was Auntie, I need to rest a while, you are so intense!

Untitled
This is love.

It took me a couple of days to adjust to being back home again, now I feel I'm back on track and will spend a lot of time alone working and taking walks with Johan. I also plan to take it easy with partying, which can be a bit difficult when you live in this crazy party city and you have crazy party people as friends (myself included). We enjoy our fun! I have a big outdoor rave to go to on August 6 and knowing that makes it easier to hide for a while. Listen to this old lady, omg.

Garden party

Untitled
My mum is the best. Summer flowers in the bathroom and she threw a garden party to which she had invited a bunch of relatives so I could see everyone at the same time.

Untitled
One of my most beautiful food pictures ;) We prepared ourselves with some pizza to get ready for the party preparations.

Untitled
Johan prepared the sound system.

Untitled
And people came by for food and drinks. Some of my relatives I hadn't seen for almost ten years!

Untitled
I had one of those as a kid.

Untitled
Here it's almost 10pm and still bright outside.

One more post from Sweden and then it's Berlin time again, OK? :)

Swedish overdose

Untitled
Last Saturday Johan, mum and I went to Hägnan in Gammelstad Church Town. We had a LOL moment in the car as my mum all of a sudden said elephant tampons about those white hay things.

Untitled
The open air museum Hägnan. We thought it was time to get some proper Swedish impressions. I start to see Sweden with different eyes, it feels a bit exotic.

Untitled
Beauty.

Untitled
My blondes.

Untitled
Moving in.

Untitled

Untitled
Hello, pig! Johan, the pig looks like you when you're relaxing!

Untitled

Untitled
We were watching those tiny goats wondering if it was sexy time or a fight about the swimming pool.

Untitled
This horse was dressed for a techno club.

Friday BBQ

Untitled
Last Friday we celebrated my mum's vacation with a BBQ.

Untitled
It was me, Johan, my sister, her boyfriend, my mum & her boyfriend.

Untitled
We ate a lot, as usual.

Untitled
And drank red wine, laughed and talked about important and stupid things.

Untitled
Summer flowers on the kitchen table.

I can't tell you how happy I feel after the week in Sweden, I could truly enjoy it this time. Thank goodness for getting older and happier. Someone asked me what it feels like to get older and I answered Getting older is my hobby. Here's to something new!

North Swedish countryside

Untitled
Last week I went to Sweden with Johan, to visit my family. We started the week at my dad's summerhouse.

Untitled
This is the sauna he built himself. Highlight of the trip!

Untitled
Forest forest forest. He's had the summerhouse since 1995 and this was the 3rd time I spent a night there. 1st time I didn't freak out from the silence.

Untitled
He made us dinner, Baltic herring as a starter. And then some BBQ and salad. Yum!

Untitled
After dinner, it was time to hit the sauna.

Untitled
I took some pictures and some deep breaths. After so many years in Berlin, I think nature smells lovely.

Untitled
The woodland lake.

Untitled
It was raining every day except for one, when my mum threw a garden party.

Untitled
It doesn't get dark up there at night.

Untitled
This is right before midnight, Johan found his post sauna catwalk.

Untitled
The next day, dad woke us up with waffles.

Untitled
Tastiest ever, with whipped cream and cloud berry jam.

Untitled
We decided it was time to hit the second hand shops, our tradition.

Untitled
On our way we said hi to this lady moose. Beautiful, isn't she?

Now I'm back home and I have a few more pictures to share :)
I feel happy. I love my family so much.

Not afraid of dying

Untitled
This week has been a lot of fun. On Tuesday Johan and I took a walk down by the river and looked at people partying.

Untitled
I met a friend who had a surgery and we had coffee.

Untitled
A sunny head and today I had breakfast on Eili's balcony.

Tomorrow I'm going to do a job where I will ride a scooter all over Berlin, it's going to be exciting and I told my friends on Facebook that if I die, I want my funeral to contain Champagne, Oysters & Pet Shop Boys. I promise to drive safely. I'm not afraid of dying, but I'm afraid of getting hurt. Fingers crossed I'm gonna be fine!

Thank you all for answering my questions on my previous post, it's been so great getting to know you better and within a few weeks, I will make a post with my answers to your questions. If you have any questions, feel free to post them here and I'll include them in the post :)

Splashes of colour

Untitled
Saw some colourful simple things today, like this hot dog wrapping paper - I felt like I was a kid in the 80's again.

Untitled
Beautiful colourful origami.

Untitled
Passed by Herr Nilsson and bought a small bag of pick and mix candy.

Untitled
Then it was time to walk back home to the studio again and work.

I think I'm going to spend the rest of the evening in my studio.
