new music - the xx
I've been listening to The XX's new album all week, mostly on the subway! The music video above is my favorite song from the album. Though, it was released as a single last year in November so you have probably heard it! Anyway, the whole album is available on Spotify. It's called I See You.

Me in front of Bode Museum in Berlin. Today I'm working on a new site for my portfolio, there's so many options out there so I have no clue about how I actually want it. Although, I am still tired from the Berlin trip, so many new impressions and people I've never met! But so much fun, totally worth my tiredness haha!
we have coffee
I got home pretty late yesterday, around 00:30. We, Tobias, Louise and I got a ride from Johanna's boyfriend from Arlanda. I am so thankfull! The plane was over 30 minutes late which lead to that I missed my buss and couldn't get home until 03:30.... so bad communications to Arlanda! Anyway, the first image is from a place called The Visit in Berlin and the other two's from a cozy café called Camon. Both to be find in an area called Kreuzberg in Berlin! Well, I have been working today so my room is still in chaos.... I have to get some order in here or else I'll become crazy.

hello from berlin
It's been two eventful days here in Berlin! With shopping competitions, sightseeing and dinners! I didn't bring my computer so I'll give you guys a lot more snaps when I'm back in Sweden again. The images above are from when we where heading to a pretty cool museum with modern art (pretty hard to get a grip about it all....) anyway... we're soon heading out to a mall to use up our gift cards and later on we're going to a rooftop for some drinks! I
up up and away to... berlin
Up up and away, to Berlin this time (as I told you guys yesterday). I took the buss to the airport at 8 in the morning and our plane left Stockholm half past ten. Now there's a lunch awaiting for me and the rest of the bloggers at head office. So nice to meet so many new inspiring people in the fashion and blog athmosphare. From all around Europe! I'll try to keep you guys updated here... otherwise I'll be posting more frequently on my instagram (as usual... my fave social media, for sure): @ellensimonea !
going to berlin
I'm invited to a trip to Berlin together with a bunch of other bloggers from Sweden, Denmark, Germany and France! We're flying in tomorrow and I'm really excited about it! The hotel we're staying at seems so nice too. I haven't traveled from Arlanda Airport for yeeaaaars so I don't remember at all what it looks like.... so I'm mostly nervous about how to find the right check-in desk and terminal haha... but I'm truly excited about this weekend and to meet new people and fashion bloggers!
the best start
Throw back to a yummy starter from last year! It's an oven baked pear! I'm still at the studio editing and printing images. I'm listening to "Morgonpasset i P3" and drinking my last cup off coffee of the day! That first and last cup of coffee under a day is really the best ones!
my new (current) workspace
The workspace at the studio. Under construction though! I'm assisting and retouching for a photographer that's renovating a whole new studio in Stockholm. It's so much fun and what I moved up to Stockholm for! I'll be traveling a lot these upcoming weeks, both in work and freetime! Excited!
cold days vs warm days
The cold weather outside makes me miss these (pic above) sort of days! A walk between the meadows during sunset (with mom, miss you too!) <3 Anyway, I just remembered that I haven't told you guys about the new job I landed just before Chirstmas! I'll tell you really soon (read: tomorrow) about it!

new years dinner
So I made an avocado appetizer with a creme of mayonnaise and creme fraiche with chopped red onion. On top there's seaweed caviar, chive and a slice of lime. As main course I made a asparagus and jerusalem artichoke risotto! The dessert I forgot to shoot haha, but it was a rawfood sorbet of banana and vanilla with chocolate sauce, chia seeds and coconut chips! All vegan ingredients of course!
No prep needed for this! Easily made when you have your guests in the kitchen :)

Images from the dinner I had at my place yesterday. A little to clean today... I'll do that tomorrow though haha! No energy right now... Anyway I had a great new years eve yesterday and got home around 4 in the morning. My knee got fucked up and bloddy, I slipped on my way home :( hahahaha... so I have this huge bump on my knee, the yoga I have to do for a few days ahead will be fun...
I have more images to show you guys but this will do for now!
bye bye 2016
Bye bye 2016! You've been eventful, good and bad, fun and sad, but mostly great!
Let's celebrate today, a new year, the beginning of 2017!
yesterday and today
David and I went to Fotografiska yesterday. The first image is from their bookshop, I love walking around there and I want to buy all of them haha.... today we've been to the plant for lunch and walking around in Gamla Stan. David took the train home to Växjö a few hours ago and I've been to a meeting and got home one hour ago or so. Right now I'm planning a new years eve dinner! I'm working tomorrow as well so I'm on a tight schedule!
David and I had a really yummy lunch today at Babel Deli, Lebanese vegan mezze food. Mhmmm! Anyway, we got home a while ago and later in the evening we're going to Fotografiska!
match making makeup
Not matchy matchy at all! Nails from ESSIE and lips from Lumene! I've been hanging out with my brother today who arrived to Stockholm this afternoon! He'll be staying here for a few days!
coffee at sturekatten
Since Kamilja had such a long lunch break today we had a cozy time together at Sturekatten. One of my favourite Café's in Stockholm actually. That smirk with a coffe in my hand though haha... anyway, when Kamilja had to go back to work I went to Cos and bought a dress... and now I've been doing my accounting and yoga. Great combo!
Back in Stockholm. Came home from Deluxe 2 in the morning and had to go up at 06:30 today since my train to Stockholm left the station in Alvesta 08:30. I came home 12 so now I'm soon off to work! Hectic day!
a vegan christmas table
Since it's so "boring" to be vegan during Christmas I have to say I've never eaten so good r*bs, s*lmon or h*m in my entire life (I've never liked ham to begin with, but ribs mhmmmm). Everything besides the m**tballs, ch**se and butter are homemade by me and my mom. So on my Christmas table there was two types of r*bs, scrambled tofu, oat-cream'ed kale, marinated carrot with mustard sauce, breaded turnip, brussels sprouts, A&A's Göttbullar, two types of aubergine h*rring: tomato and mango, bread and crispbread, peas, red cabbage, beetroot salad and a raw green salad. Can't complain!
Merry Chistmas! God Jul!
mulled wine / glögg
I've been haning out with Rebecca and Julia today at Condeco in Växjö. After that I headed home to my family for some fika with mulled wine and saffron bread! I'm so tired and it really shows in the pictures haha. Anyway! There's going to be the first Christmas dinner tonight, I'm so excided about all the vegan Christmas food I'll be eating! :D
full rulle as I would say in swedish
Whoha! This day never comes to an end! I've been on my feet non stop! First David, Mom and I traveled to my cousin's house to have a little Christmas fika together with her (my cousin) and her three children. So cozy and a lot of playtime and full speed with the kids. I love spending time with them, everything is so effortless and she, my cousin, is amazing with kids. I don't understand how she does it so good! But she is so obvious with all of that and I really hope that I got a little something of that gene too! Anyway, when we got home, and after a little tour in the supermaket, I've been doing two diffrent christmas candies, crisp bread and aubergine "herring". I just finished my daily yoga. Now I have to cook my family dinner. I was hoping to be able to relax a little when I got home during the Christmas holiday but no...... oh and I got the honors of placing the little star on top of the Christmas tree this year!
thank you <3
I see a pattern... follow @ellensimonea !
Last year I made four different types of aubergine herring. This year I'll just make my favourites, Mango and Tomato! Mango is my absolute favourite! Would any of you guys care for the Mango Herring recipe? Today's my last day of work in the Studio before I head home to Växjö for the Christmas Holidays. I just have 4 days off though, but it's going to be marvelous! I haven't had two days off in a row for such a long time now! My body is craving it and I'm longing for my family!
