My new baby! I am soooo happy to finally bought this amazing lens!
I had a pair of leather Converse before, and I loved them, but they didn't have the same look as the common ones. I'm so happy I found these though, I really needed new ones! The last time I bought a new pair of Converse was 5 years ago, and that was my first pair too! and these leather Converse will stay white for much longer than the ones in textile! I paid 65 dollars for these!
Yesterday on Manhattan at a place called Finale. Had a great time with the girls. Woke up at 12 today, hahaha... so tired!
night out, manhattan
Today I'm with Therese at her studio in Brooklyn. I hope we're done around 6, I have to get home in time to dress and get ready for a night out on Manhattan with some girls! So excited! First: dinner around 8 and then we're going to a club! I bought 2 new pair of shoes yesterday, I'll show you tomorrow... when I wake up haha!
two more from favorite place
Two more pictures from Central Park. On my way to Mikael's office right know. Just one subway stop,
and a few minutes of walking. The weather is so nice too, sunny, blue sky and 23 degrees, perfect!
Some pictures from Central Park at dark. It's so freaking beautiful with skyscrapers at night time!
Right now I'm with Mikael in his office on Manhattan. I'm going to B&H store later today, so excited!

I took the subway to Central Park yesterday in the evening to meet Nalinn. We bought something to eat in the park and then walked around until it got dark. I have some photos from Central Park at night time, I'll show you tomorrow! Right know I'm on my Internship with Therese. I hope you have a lovely day guys, cuz I sure will!
View from a penthouse in Tribeca. Have a lot of things to do today, like homework from my internship, laundry and some other errands!
A few pictures taken with my iPhone the last days. It's election today in Sweden, I hope those who can votes! I have already voted!
Burlesque show yesterday on Manhattan! So much fun!
Bronzer, Eye Brightener and Blemish Remedy foundation, the last one helps to prevent zits and new outbreaks. Got it for about 79 dollars, which is 550 kr, Swedish price for this stuff: 1200 kr, kinda crazy. Right know I'm getting ready to go into the City for some shopping with Johanna before I get to work. I'm not sure what I'll be doing tonight more than dinner on Manhattan, maybe a Karaoke bar? We'll see!
Today I'm on a interior shoot with Therese. I got up at 06:30 so I'm a bit tired right know, but it's fun shooting interior because I've never done this before! Yesterday, on my way home, I made a quick visit in a Sephora store on Manhattan. Bought make up for 550 sek, to get the same products in Sweden you have to pay 1200 sek.. crazy!
This is the bag I've been talking about. I don't have any bag in which my Macbook fits, and this is a special made Michael Kors bag, it's made to fit Appel's 15" MacBooks, it also have pockets made for iPad and iPhone! I'm not really into designer bags, this wasen't to expencive either, but this bag is so simple and I think the design lasts for at least a couple of years. Anyway, I'm really happy with this!
Two pictures from my neighbourhood in Williamsburg! Yesterday was a really long day with Theresa. Left home at 08:30 and got home around 20:40. Gosch, was so tired. We photographed interior in a beautiful apartment, or Theresa did, I assisted. Today it's a lookbook photoshoot.

I had a calm day yesterday, didn't do much. But at 18:00 I met up with Johanna to go on a exhibition opening in east village on Manhattan. After that we went to grab something to eat and Anja joined us too. Got home around 21:00. Right know I'm with Therese, another swedish photographer in New York, on a photoshoot. I'll be with her this week because Mikael is in Sweden!
upper east side
The view from the apartment yesterday evening! Aaaaamazing but really scary too!
I had a great time with my new found friends on upper east side yesterday night. Took these two pictures with my iPhone... not the best, still amazing though! Right now I'm about to call my mom on FaceTime. Have a great one!
// Model selfie style... or not //
Met the sweet and lovely Coco Rocha yesterday! Do any of you know who she is? Maybe ANTM a few seasons a go ring a bell? If not, google it! Anyhow, I got home at 19:00 yesterday, a long day huh! But I had so much fun! Right know I'm at Mikael's studio/office in downtown Manhattan. Yes on a saturday, but I'm only excited!
My plans changed a little yesterday. I had a lovely lunch on my internship with Mikael Schulz! I really feel like I'm gonna have a great time with him in New York. Today I'm at a photoshoot with Mikael, assisting of course. I can't tell you so much about it, but I can tell you that the model is famous and has been on an Italian Vogue cover... cool huh?! Got up at 05:00 today though, not cool, we had to start the shoot at 07:00 because the model has to leave around 14:00. By the way, bought myself a new bag yesterday, I'll show you guys later!
more of central park
// Hahaha, happy girl in her running shoes, so much walking in this city! //
Okey, haha so I got lost yesterday, I didn't find the stores I was looking for... sooo instead of walking around alone today (more like a girl who lost her mom in the park) I'm gonna go shopping with Johanna. She knows New York a lot more than I do! See ya later!
// Me in Central Park, I don't have any summer clothes with me... and it's so hot outside, so today I'm shopping clothes!! //
// Johanna and Nalinn //
I had a great and really hot day in Central Park yesterday with Johanna and Nalinn. It was 30 degrees celsius around 21:00 when I got home... so you can imagine... anyway, Central Park is amazing, I totally forgot I was in the middle of Manhattan, a true oasis. For me it's a place where you can escape the big city feeling and the stress it comes with. I'm gonna try to go there often, at least once in a week, only to relax and have a little time with mother earth. I didn't understand the size of Central Park before I got there today, but it's truly huge, and I love it!
day and night
// Exakt same view day and night //
I'm meeting some of the girls from yesterday today too but in Central Park, haven't had time to go there yet so I'm excited!
// Sara who I met for the first time yesterday, such a sweet girl //
(Photos taken with my iPhone 5)
Yesterday before the place filled up with people, this was quite early and I didn't take any photos later in the evening. I had a great time with Sara last night! For some reason I feel like people here are so much more outgoing and nicer, not just americans but everyone. Well, then of course, I don't think a narrow minded person would even think of living here! You just can't! Well, today I'm taking the metro over to Manhattan for some coffee with Sara and some other girls I haven't met yet! But that ain't until later, when it's night in Sweden!
strictly vinyl event
I'm sitting in the living room right now and sweating, it's already 26 degrees celsius outside and today's prognose says it's going to be 31... uh! The guy I live with have a lot of LP-records, and that isn't even a third of em! Today I'm going to a house music event that goes on the whole day, from 13:00 to 04:00. But I don't think I'm gonna be out to 4 o'clock in the morning haha. Anyway, it's a strictly vinyl house music event, so they'll only be playing music on vinyl records, so cool!
Williamsburg bridge, I'm gonna walk here a lot, pretty amazing view I'll have when I'm going to work!
A part of the view hehe... a bit cloudy today, still really hot though! (Worst picture ever... haha)
Brooklyn in the beginning of the bridge.
I walked to Manhattan today to get an american sim card and phone number. So if you had my swedish number before and want to get in touch with me while I'm in New York, just send me a message on facebook, email or iMessage and I'll give you my number!
right now in williamsburg
It's only 9:30 here in New York, but I've been awake since 6:00, I've heard it's called jet lag haha. Slept for almost 11 hours, pretty good I think. Right now I'm in Williamsburg getting ready to go and shop some food and a sim card for my phone. I guess it'll be evening or even night in Sweden next time you guys hear from me!
to the airport
When I left my sweet home in Växjö around 07:00 to drive with my dad to Kastrup in Copenhagen! My hands disappeared haha... I said goodbye to my mother and brother too! I'm gonna miss my family so much!
sweden i'll miss you...
...but just a little!
(To be really honest I'm going to miss my family so much, and
probably how you do things in Sweden too.. like including the
taxes directly in the prices... whats up with that huh?!)
For me it's in this order; 3, 1 and 2!
black bean chocolate cookies
Made these really delicious cookies today, and you can't believe that the main ingredient are black beans!
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees celsius. Mix 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, 3/4 cup agave syrup and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla sugar in a bowl. Mix 2 cups boiled black beans, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, 1 cup kako and a little less than 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper with a hand blender. Stir chia mixture into the bean batter. Add 1 cup chopped chocolate (vegan/glutenfree or ordinary) and 1/2 cup dried goji berries. Spred the mixture on baking sheets, 24 for smaller cookies, 12 for large. Sprinkle a little sea salt over the cookies. Place in the oven for about 20 minutes.
