no sleep for 36 h
stylebyellen on instagram
Right now I have been awake for 36 hours. I guess I'm gonna crush
my record and reach the 40 hours limit today. This is sick... I never
had such problems with sleeping before. It kicked in during the last year
and I hate it. Well, everything with beeing awake isn't bad... I turned it into
something positiv instead and went out in the wonderful weather and
ate my breakfast in the morning sun on a small jetty by the sea. I was
lying there for two hours between 06:00 and 08:00, I got sunburned so
my nose is red and I got freckles, I love freckles!
On the Garpemountain with my friends, Gustaf, Kamila and Cecilia today. Wonderful weather and a wonderful
time. On the other picture I was reading outloud from the book Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring.
the exhibition "define me"
The exhibition runs until the 8/6-2014, at Arbetets Museum in Norrköping!
There you have it, "blood tears of a dove", my own peace dove and my
interpretation of the term ethnicity!
ida Sjöstedt for monki
Bought a beautiful thing from Monki today. Gonna wear it on our exhibition tomorrow! So happiiiiii!
Some pics from today's shoot. Not sure about the edit yet... I'll solve that in a few days, or at least I hope so!
I photographed Emelie and Herman! Two awesome people, so glad they did this for me! :D
game girl, photoshoot
Right now I'm planning a photoshoot for tomorrow, with a girl and a boy. Got the inspiration from the series
Game Girl in Vogue. It's not going to be action in the pictures, but more like a power girl feeling! Feeling excited!
The song Grown Woman by Beyonce is playing on repeat in my head.
Love her visual album, have you seen it yet? Make sure to see it in the right order!
The whole gang!
Pictures that you haven't seen borrowed from Mats Samuelsson!
Hilarious! You just have to see it! :D

My favorite smoothie, the green one: (one glass)
1 tbs honey
1,5 dl water
Mix the ingredients all together with a handblender or such. Done! So yummy!
The dark pink smoothie, was made by me and Julia last monday, good stuff I'll tell ya!
(Read her blog about healthy food: www.healthylife.forme.se !!)
I don't really know the exact amount but its made of:
Blueberries, raspberries, banana, almond milk, raw peanut butter and raw syrup, with cashews on top!
raw chocolate balls
I made raw chocolate balls yesterday (all vegan and gluten free) and I thought of sharing them with you guys! So that's what I'm gonna do!
3 unprocessed dried figs
3 tbs cocoa
3 tbs coconut flakes
2 tsp honey (not necessary)
Topping: coconut flakes.
Mix all the ingredients together in a food processor, if the mixtures
still dry add some water or figs (honey if you want it sweeter). Shape
the mixture into small balls and roll into coconut flakes, all done!
Right: (not vegan)
Raw almond butter (1,5 dl almonds, 2 tbs sunflower oil, 2 tbs water)
3-6 tbs cacoa
3 tbs honey
Topping: sesame seeds.
Mix the almonds in a food processor into a flour, add sunflower oil
and water, mix it all together. Blend the almond butter together
with cacoa and honey. Shape the mixture into small balls and roll
in sesame seeds, all done!
I personally love the ones with almond butter!
Eezy peezy! Hope you like it!
the interview !!
Here's the video Alicia and Linnea made about me, there's also some clips from this photoshoot I made
with Kamila! It's so awkward to see yourself on film AND to hear you voice at the same time.. I look a
bit stiff and bored from times to times, but I was really nervous and we were interrupted constantly
during the interview, anyway... Hope you like it! And it's in Swedish, I'll see if I can translate it!
home sweet home
Home again in Växjö with my family for some well deserved easter holiday! Spending the two following weeks here, so nice!

behind the scenes
Me shooting Kamila from the tree! I love heights but I get dizzy and my feet hurts... haha it's weird that my feet hurts I know... but still totally worth it!
Hahaha, have no words for the pose on this one...
...or this one hahaha!
Hahaha, love my facial expression, so concentrated!
Some behind the scenes you haven't seen from this shoot I made with Kamila a few weeks ago! Gustaf took
these pics with his iPhone during the shoot, exept from the screenshot of course! I saw the movie for the first
time yesterday, it's so awkward to see yourself on film AND to hear you voice at the same time.. I look a bit
stiff and bored from times to times, but I was really nervous and we were interrupted constantly during the
interview. So fun to have though! Well well, I'll post it for you tomorrow or on friday! Have a great evening! :*
