Hotel breakfasts could be the best thing, especially when they have vegan yogurt and milk and the biggest range of toppings for your yoghurt too! Yum yum, but about over to something else: I'm shooting the whole day today so I'll be working from early morning until late afternoon. I hope you have a great wednesday guys!

My look today. I slept so bad tonight, woke up by the thunder too. Arghhh... anyway I'm planning a shoot tomorrow.
Pictures by the Eiffel Tower. It felt so surreal to stand there and see the tower irl to both me and Julia. Since we've seen it in pictures so many times it felt just like one of those pictures but this time it was incredibly real. Anyway, I just got home from a fika with Besa and Julia. I have to lay down for a while now since my head is pounding so hard, I got the worst headache :(.
Not to proud of the combo in these pictures but my top is from Gina Tricot, the skirt's from Monki and shoes from Nike.
at the eiffel tower
Picture from when Julia and I where "inside" the Eiffel Tower. We decided to take the stairs instead of the elevator. I get dizzy of heights but I managed it pretty well, so if you ever thinking about to see the beautiful view of Paris from the Eiffel Tower, take the stairs! The que went fast and the second floor is high enough!
blue eyed and from 94
oh so serious
Today we, the two blue eyed gals above, are leaving Paris. For this time! We'll be back! I have a lot of pictures to show you when I get home. Oh and don't forget that I have been updating my instagram account daily, with pictures from Paris: @stylebyellen. Check it out or... wait for some of the pictures to be posted here ;). Our flight arrives in Copenhagen around 18:00 today so we won't be in Växjö until 20:30-21:00 tonight! Puss.
the blue glass bar

Drinking champagne with passion fruit juice together with mom a few weeks ago at Kosta Boda Art Hotel and Spa. That glass bar is INCREDIBLE I'll tell ya. Anyhow, It's friday today and I'm in Paris with my best gal Julia, where else? We're going out dancing tonight. It's going to be so much fun! Cheers!
taking selfies be like... why so serious?
I was trying to take some serious selfies with my baby the other day, baby referring to the camera of course ;)! But my brother began to photobomb me. Cheers to that David! Well well, still hanging in Paris with Julia! I have a lot to show you when I get home on saturday, I'm snapping photos in every corner!
fav o-o-o rite
Some of my latest outfits, any favorite? Since I'm in Paris with Julia, I have prepared a few posts for you guys so I don't need to worry about that. I really need to take a vacation from everything. But if you want "live-updates" you should check out my instagram account, @stylebyellen!

This is the other picture I haven't showed you guys, of the two model tests I did after the In Between shoot. Isabella's eyes are amazing, that green colour is so beautiful! Anyhow, Julia and I are traveling to Paris today! Whoooo, so at the moment I'm packing the last things, we're taking the train to Denmark around 13:00! Excited!
I thought my hair looked so nice today. I washed it yesterday and I've only brushed it since. So here's two snapshots of it from today. I know some of you guys have problems with my highlights. And if it is something I've been hated on during all these years I've been blogging it is my hair color. But I got love too, soooo.... Anyway, what matters the most in the end, is what we think about ourselves. I see these weird highlights as a "trademark". It's easy for people to spot me from far away too which is really convenient among crowds! Hahaha!
A picture from the wedding yesterday. I'll be working with this tonight, selecting pictures among other things. It's perhaps the most boring part of the job, but relaxing too. Listening to music and snacking on something sweet is pretty nice though! ^^
throw 'em stones, my glass house is bulletproof.

My outfit from yesterday. I felt really summer fresh wearing this look, even though it's a long sleeved shirt. Oh and I just love the first picture, it really captures the feeling of summer with the sun in the right corner! Today however, I'm shooting a wedding so I'll be working all day between 10:00 and 20:00 approximately. Well well, I hope you guys have a fun saturday, the weather really is marvelous!
pearls pearls pearls
I made a picnic for me and mom to have by the lake yesterday. She worked late so I decided it would be more fun to have a picnic in the sun than eating at home in the garden, and I was right! The sun was really soothing, we even took a swim! I made a pasta salad with shrimps, soybeans, arugula, spinach, fried red onion and a vegan sauce to go with it! I also brought the crispbread I made yesterday and a vegan cheese to eat with it. Yummylicious! I love to have picnics, it's so cosy!
Today I made gluten-free seed cripsbread. It's really easy so I'm gonna give you the recpie!
Circa 60 min, time in oven 45-50 min.
2dl Buckwheat flour (Bovetemjöl)
2,5dl Seeds (I used: Pumpkin seeds, Sunflower seeds, Chia seeds, Sesame seeds and a little Flax seeds)
2dl cold water
A little salt
30ml Olive oil.
Preheat the oven to 150 degrees C. Mix all the dry ingredients together, use 2.5dl seeds of your own choice. Add the water and oil and stir until a smooth batter. Pour the batter onto a baking sheet and spread the mixture evenly, approximately 30cm x 40cm. Place the plate in the middle of the oven and bake for about 25 minutes. Remove the plate from the oven and cut squares using a knife. Place the bread in the middle of the oven again and bake for 20-25 minutes. Let the crispbread cool before eating! Easy and yummy! :)

My look today, found these boyfriend jeans at Monki last week for an amazing price so I just couldn't go home without buying them! I've been out sunbathing today again. It's so sad that my tan doesnt who in the pictures above. Because I've succeeded to get a little tan, and I'm feeling so summer fresh with my freckles too! Well, I'm not gonna hang around here any more, it's time to head out again!
picnic at "sea"
Julia and I drove to our, or at least my favourite place to take a bath in Helgasjön. The water is so clear and beautiful that it looks a little like the sea, hence the title of this post! Anyway, it was so nice and calm there. We were totally alone for almost 2 hours before an old and alone lady accompanied us! Well well, I came home one hour ago and now I have a few work related things to do.
it's just another scarf

We never went to a club yesterday. Instead we went skinny dipping in the lake a while after midnight, spontaneous and so much fun! And the water wasn't that cold since Växjösjön is a pretty small lake! I got home around 03:20 today, took a quick shower and after that straight to bed, I'm so tired today and a little hungover! NOW I really have to get me some lunch. I haven't had any breakfast except from a cup of coffee and a slice of sweet melon.
// Sunglasses from Indiska and the bikini is from H&M a few years ago //
When you realize what a genius you were to decide to have your vacation in August this year! These sunny days ahhh!
I'm donating kisses to the sun above! (The ribs look so scary when you twist your body in weird ways...)
reflection of the sun
Top from Gina Tricot and Levis jeans from when mom where young, vintage that is! I guess you guys didn't notice the cat at first, am I right? My little Legolas is sleeping in the right corner of the picture! He is loving this weather just as much as I do, but he should do something else than sleeping all the time haha!
// Swimsuit from Asos //
Feeling like a mermaid. I've been out in the sun the whole day. I'm loving the weather right now so I'll be out the rest of the day too!
moa rikner model test
// Photographer: Ellen Simone // Model: Moa Rikner // MUA&Hair: EllenSimone //
We had some time left after we had shot the series In Between so I decided to do two beauty images. I did a quick change of make up and the one of Moa Rikner ended up like this. The two beauty shots are supposed to be together so they look a little like eachother, I'll show you the one of Isabella Dehner soon!

Pictures of me from my visit at Kosta Boda Art Hotel and Spa, shot with FujiFilm X100T! I was out sunbathing yesterday, for maybe 2 hours. My skin starts to shift in a golden-brown color now, FINALLY! I will never get as brown as my brother gets, it's impossible for me. However, I get freckles, which I love and the golden-brown color I get after a while is beautiful. I, and everyone else, who has sensitive skin just have to deal with it. I'm for one is totally over the "brown/sunburned skin" hysteria, there's no point in even trying for my sake hahaha!
When everyone else is drinking tons of beer I'm eating fruit. This is a fruit plate mom and I had at the spa. It's really lovely weather outside at the moment, hence the boring update. I just gotta make the most of this weather as long as it lasts! Peace!
kosta boda art hotel and spa
We had a summer lunch in the hotel's restaurant before we headed down to the spa and relax area.
So mom and I had a wonderful stay at Kosta Boda Art Hotel and Spa. I've got more pictures to show you guys but as of now I'm heading out in this amazing weather of ours! I brought my FujiFilm X100T to the spa so all the photos are shot with that little beauty!
Me and my boys, hahahaha, playing Beach Volleyball yesterday. It was so hot, god, but I am not complaining! Anyway, the losing team got what they deserve, except me (you gotta have som perks for being a photographer haha), as you can se in the 6th picture. Right know I'm getting ready for a spa day with mom, we're staying the night at the spa too!
Finally some hot weather in Växjö! It's 28C at the moment and I'm loving it. As of right know I'm getting ready to go and play some beach volleyball! Peace!
me <3 breakfasts
Although I don't like to eat early in the morning, I love to have long and calm breakfasts. I like to have my breakfast around 10:00, and end it first an hour later haha. So I know what I'll do next week every morning ;). I'll probably begin the day with a morning run or walk and then have the mandatory breakfast. Oh... if everyday was like the pictures above, I'd die happy.

Yesterday, oooh so good, I had picnic with Julia at Evedal. It was two years ago since I was there the last time... It's not my favourite place in Växjö, but it's a good place if you want to stay in the sun late. Haha, about the sun, my skin hasn't seen the sun for I while.... but next week untz untz untz, I'll be sun sun sunbathing a lot! Because it's my last day at ICA on fridayayayayay!
Julia and I booked a flight to Paris two days ago! And we are so excited! I'm longing. If you got any tips on restaurants, cafés etc, don't hesitate to tell me!
