yesterday's birthday girl
I surprised Nadja with a cupcake and tickets to New York Comedy Club in bed yesterday, cus it was her 20th birthday!
Having brunch at an American diner, omelets and American pancakes!
Me and Nadja close to the WTC Memorial.
I had a day of yesterday which I spent with Nadja, but today I'm back to work with Therese!
Pics from today taken with my iPhone, a tour downtown at the WTC memorial with Nadja who arrived yesterday!
It starts to get cold here in New York. I like it, and the trees are changing color, so beautiful, I have to go to central park tomorrow or this weekend. I'm sitting in my bed and writing this post. I better get going soon. Oh Nadja's coming here tonight and stays for a week! Gonna be so much fun having her here!
Pictures taken from my window last night and this morning! Beautiful weather! I'm on my way to Therese now, we have a little shoot today! See ya!
I ended up buying a toiletry bag with two smaller bags in it and a cerise colored kimono. I walked around in there for like a hour... and bought 2 things hahaha.... I have to get better at shopping in Victoria's Secret! Today I'm doing laundry, and after that I'll go to the flea market in Williamsburg. I hope you have a great sunday!
the brooklyn sun
A picture from when I got home from work at Therese's in Brooklyn the other day, taken with my iPhone. It's beautiful weather outside today, all I can see is a blue sky, so wonderful! I'm not sure what I'm doing though, I just woke up haha... but I'm thinking of going on a little shopping spree at Victoria´s Secret, and look for a new winter coat... haven't found one yet!
Bought a new nail polish at Sephoras yesterday. Looks much better IRL than on picture!
dr martens airwair
Bought me a pair of Dr Martens in soft leather yesterday. My very first pair!
3 snapshots from yesterday! I went out and had Tacos with Therese and 3 gay friends to her yesterday, I had a wunderful time before I got to tired and went home! Anyway, I have a day off today so I'm working with school and then I'm going into the city.
walking into a movie set
When I was headed home from Union Square yesterday a funny thing happened! I walked right into a movie set. I just got up from the stairs at the Bedford station and ended up in the middle of a movie set hahaha... and I was one meter from the guy that plays Schmidt in New Girl and yes we had eye contact for a second. I don't know what they where filming for but maybe it was New Girl. Anyway, I was a bit shocked when I walk up from the station and saw him and the rest of the set. Although... before I got to the stairs that led up from the subway I saw a guy wave with his hands and point at the opposite direction, but I had loud music in my ears so I couldn't hear what he was saying! I guess I got in the way a little... anyway, went back and snapped a photo, a really bad one but I'll post it on my instagram account later, @stylebyellen. Just a normal day in NYC you know!
A few pictures from a rooftop in Bushwick yesterday. I was hanging around in Union Square yesterday afternoon and a guy asked me to take my picture, he were photographing with film and took my email address so he'll send me the result when he developed the film! So fun with street photographers that's shooting in the old fashioned way! I'm with Therese in Brooklyn at the moment!
the brown coat
// 1&2, Urban Outfitters // 3&4, H&M and Top Shop//
I'm looking for the perfect brown or camel colored coat, more to the style like the first and last coats. Got any tips where I should look?
This is where I hang when I watch Swedish Idol, so I've been hanging here the whole morning. I almost always watch it on saturday mornings. My favorite since the auditions is Mollie, she's fantastic! We went to a club called Hotel Chantelle yesterday, it's a 3 story building with a rooftop on Lower East Side, it was fun but we went home around 2 in the morning! I'm not sure what's happening today, we'll see!
// Pics from my iPhone! //
There's a place called Spot Dessert Bar, I've been there two times now and they have sooooo yummy desserts. It's a dessert tapas bar, I've tasted 4 of the many desserts so far and they've all been really good! You find this dessert bar on Lower East Side! !
It's raining today in New York and yesterday I got caught in the rain. I was walking in the rain on upper east side, and it was pouring down. Everyone was running or hiding and I just walk like it wasn't raining. So everyone was staring. I mean it's just water, what to do?! When I finally got down in the subway I was soaking wet and it was dripping of my clothes, face and hair (I have really long hair as you know!). More people were staring and I almost laughed out loud but I manage to hold it in. Everyone I met in the subway was looking with big bambi eyes on me, hilarious haha!
what i miss and don't
Maybe it's weird but I don't really miss Sweden. I just miss some things that Sweden do a lot better than USA and New York. Like our system for handling garbage! They just throw out everything on the streets in the evening like they do in many other countries... it's a bit dirty and smelly on the streets I'll tell you. Anyway, something I really long for is when my friends Nadja and Julia are visiting and when my family comes in the end of my stay! Oh it's gonna be so much fun having them here!
where to after new york ?
I'm only here for 3 months, as I've told you before. I'm moving to Stockholm, when I'm done here with Mikael and Therese, to have the last part of my internship. Where and with whom I'll tell you soon!
pics from global citizen
A LOT of people I tell ya!
The guys I went with!
Men and the guys!
A few pictures from the Global Citizen I haven't showed you, all taken with my iPhone! Right know I'm at the office with Mikael, haven't been here with him for 10 days I think, he's been in LA shooting! So jealous of him!
ninja new york
// Candice behind the Ninjas arm, Johanna the birthday girl and Anja! //
// Andrea, Jonas and I //
Johanna's birthday dinner at the Ninja New York restaurant. A dinner experience I won't forget! Yesterday was fun, we kinda ended up doing nothing! Anyway, today I'm doing laundry and yoga. But before the yoga, which is later today, I'm going to Manhattan and some H&M stores. I'm looking for the perfect winter coat, got any tips in which stores to look?
a bag and yesterday
Found this bag at a... let me tell you this once again... Urban Outfitter store. Didn't know it was on sale until I got to the checkout. So I got it for 10 dollars instead of 60. It's not that big, I think it measures 25 x 20 centimeters or something like that. However a great deal for that bag. Yesterday was awesome, got home around 4 in the morning, so I'm a bit tired now! The restaurant we went to was called Ninja New York, and yes it really is a Ninja restaurant, don't know how many times we where scared during our dinner there!
yoga to the people
Went to a yoga class at 10:00 today with Main in East Village, it's a donation based yoga class which means that you pay what you want when the class is done. Great workout and I really needed it for my arms, so shaky haha! I'll try to go there 2 times a week at least! The place is called Yoga to the People. Tonight we're celebrating Johannas birthday! See ya later!
another ugly pair of jeans
// Top and Shirt, BikBok // Pants, Urban Outfitters //
Okey mom, so I know that you think these are hideous... but I kinda like the ugliness about them! I would never pay 119 dollars for them though, which was the original price... I paid 19 dollars! Crazy huh? Another awesome find at a Urban Outfitters store! I'm going into the city looking for other great deals later today! Hehe... love sale!
boyfriend jeans, urban outfitters
Bought these jeans yesterday at a Urban Outfitter store on Manhattan. Been looking for a pair of trashed boyfriend jeans for so long, but I've never really found any that been worth the price. But these where on sale, so lucky! The last pair in my size too, paid 40 dollar instead of 100. A great find. I know that you don't want me to buy already tattered clothes mom, but you just have to be ok with this ;).
sunday, brooklyn bridge
// Me, Main and Johanna //
A few pictures from sunday. I have a free day today which is nice because I have a really bad headache. Had it since sunday evening :(.
A gif from the boat tour back home from IKEA. Right now I'm with Therese editing pictures.
yesterday at ikea
View from the IKEA Resturant.
Really bad weather when we get to IKEA.
The view from the boat on our way back home!
Swedish crispbread and Kaviar! :D
Yesterday at IKEA. It was really bad weather when we got to IKEA but then it switched while we were inside shopping. The boat tour home was fantastic, a great view over Manhattan! Right now I'm FaceTiming with Rebecca who's back home in Sweden, miss that girl. Later I'm going to a flea market here in Williamsburg!
going to ikea!
Today I'm going to IKEA with two friends here from New York. I'm gonna buy some Swedish foods like Caviar and eat meatballs! Sounds kinda boring when your in New York but the rain is pouring down and the prognosis for this afternoon doesn't seem any better. Well, I've never been to IKEA outside Sweden, I guess it looks kinda the same but I'm still curious!
you know what happened?
You know what happen to me on the subway a few days ago? Well I was going to meet up some girls in the city and had my new boots on. On the train a woman ask me "Where did you buy those shoes?", I answered "At the Shoe Market in Williamsburg", "Which brand is it?", "Jeffrey Campbell", then she replied with "I designed those shoes!". So sick, she is freelancing and design for Jeffrey Campbell when she get an idea. We talked a bit more and then I had to get off, so fun meeting the designer of these lovely boots!
what i long for
One of my many lunches with Mikael!
You know which part of the day I love the most and always longing for? Well... it's lunch hehe! Mikael and I always go out for lunch and I never know where we end up, and I just love to pic and choose from the lunch menu (because there's just a few choices, instead of what I feel is a hundred during dinner!!). Anyway, it's so nice to go out and eat during lunch, it feels so "New York", which it also is of course!
View from a rooftop I was on before the Global Citizen festival. Taken with my iPhone! It's a great view, can you see how tiny the Statue of Liberty looks? Anyway, really fancy, I got some color in my face to after two hours on that rooftop! Today I'm with Mikael, retouching pictures! I'm looking for a gym in Williamsburg too.. I found one but it's expensive but the classes seems great, yoga, pilates, spinning, boxing and so on!
