Dotted


dress: Monki (tartan version) / tights: Falke / shoes: Vagabond

Hey, it's me again! I just crawled out of my study cave (I had to write the first piece of my bachelor thesis this week, ugh) and I found these pictures I made before. This wonderful dotted button-up dress is currently my favourite thing to wear. It's super comfortable and it has pockets, which is always a big plus for me. I decided to pair it with my beloved platform sandals to add some height.

I haven't been posting a lot of outfit pictures lately, but that's because I haven't had a lot of time to experiment with cool outfits because of all the school work, and I haven't bought a lot of new clothes either - although hopefully, that last thing is going to change soon, because & Other Stories has opened a new store in Ghent and now that I handed in my assignment I finally have time to check it out :)

See you soon!

Hi! How are you guys doing? A lot has happened since last week: spring is has come and I finally started to write on my bachelor paper, how about that? Reason enough for a happy video in Swedish (with English subtitles, of course) :)

VIDEO: learning Swedish


Click here if you can't see the video.

I'M BACK! I don't know what it is about the beginning of the year (maybe it has something to do with my exams), but I always seem to be taking a spontaneous blog break around that time of the year. A lot of things have changed since my last post: I got the results from my exams back (and they were great!), I moved into my dorm room and I started a new semester at university. This one is going to be a lot busier than last semester, with lots of compulsory reading, learning Danish and writing a paper about the Moomin books, so I hope I'll find some time to squeeze in some blogging time.

Lately, I've gotten so many questions about learning Swedish - both online and in real life - so I though I'd be a good idea to make a video where I share all of my tips and tricks :) I really hope you find it helpful. If you have some tips of your own, you can leave them in the comments!

Recipe: soft and tasty scrambled eggs


Happy New Year, everyone! Let's start the year with some food! I never thought I'd write a recipe for eggs, because they're one of the easiest things to make. However, I have been trying to mix things up a little bit and came up with an improved version for my regular scrambled eggs, and I liked it so much that I thought I'd share it with you. Eggs are one of my favourite things to eat for lunch, because they're filling, healthy and just delicious :) So let's get started!


What do you need?
  • one egg
  • some cream cheese
  • about two tablespoons of milk
  • some fresh spring onions or chives
  • some fresh parsley
  • some red onion (you can also use a different kind, but I like this one because the taste is a little bit softer, and it creates a nice colour combo with the green herbs)
  • pepper and salt
  • two slices of bread
  • some butter or vegetable oil to fry the egg (I prefer a this kind of butter made from vegetable oil)

How to make it:
  1. Start by putting the bread in the toaster. I want to toast and the eggs to be done at the same time, because it tastes best when it's still hot. I usually toast my bread for four minutes, so before I start working on the egg, I put it in for two minutes, and then another two minutes when I start frying. It's all about timing!
  2. Next, I take a couple of very thin slices from the onion and chop them into pieces. I also take some parsley and a piece of spring onion or chive and chop that up as well.
  3. After that, I put the egg in a bowl, add a little bit of milk to make it smoother, and then I whisk it until it's smooth. I also add som salt and pepper.
  4. Then I take a nice scoop of cream cheese, add it to the bowl and whisk it up some more. It won't blend that well, but that's okay.
  5. Before I start frying the egg, I put the toaster on for another two minutes.
  6. Then I put some butter and fry the onions a little bit before I add the egg mixture. Then I quickly add the green herbs and start mixing it up until it looks done.
  7. Then, I put the eggs on the toasts. Enjoy!

Modern Sixties


dress: Zara / tights: Wolford / shoes: Vagabond

Hi! Today is the last day of the year, so I thought I'd show you one more outfit that I've been loving lately. I bought this dress in the beginning of the autumn, and I thought it was just perfect. Besides that fact that it's striped (how can I resist that?), the fabric is very thick, and IT HAS LONG SLEEVES! I think that's great, because when you're feeling cold, the length of your sleeves actually makes a big difference. I paired it with my beloved white platform sandals, which I think gives this look a special vibe. I don't know if it's because of the two-toned colour scheme, the geometric pattern or the short dress with the long sleeves, but something makes me feel like this look is kind of sixties (but I may be wrong!).

Anyway, so I'm spending New Year's Eve with some of my friends this year, and I think this may actually be the first time I'm not spending it with my family. I always think there's something magical about the beginning of a new year, like everything is the same but still it's not. Do you have that as well?

Have a great New Year's Eve, and I'll see you in 2015!
