Some of the outfits I wore 2014! I hope you guys have a great New Years Eve! I'm celebrating with my parents and friends at Drakamöllan in Skåne. A four-course dinner, vegetarian for my sake... I'm longing! I'm so glad I made this choice, I don't want to have my expectations crushed because the party didn't turn out as magnificent as I thought it would. The expectations is always so high on New Years that it almost always is a disappointment. Sometimes it's nice to expect the smallest and end up with the greatest. HAPPY NEW YEARS! <3
clinique liquid facial soap
Another beauty favorite from Clinique, 195 sek at Kicks. Today I'm just chilling at home, packing for tomorrow. I'm going to be in Skåne this New Years! And the main focus is food not party, really happy with that choice today! Hope you guys have something fun and exciting planned for New Years!
// Frida, Alex, Tim (haha), me, Malin and Juan! //

Two pictures from friday night when we went out to the new nightclub Mint. I always succeed to get in front of the camera at clubs... well well. About the club, no different from Oléo, so I won't go to that club anymore. I don't like how it looks inside, a disappointment, thought it would look different than Oléo. Anyway, today I'm shopping with my mom! Hope you had a great weekend!
// Christmas 2 years ago! //
Sorry for not blogging yesterday, but I had an upset stomach. So I laid in bed for 36h or something like that. I went down to the kitchen once yesterday, my legs where shaking and I had to lay down on the flor before going up again. Oh my, it's only my dad who hasen't got the winter vomiting disease yet, yes that's what we call it in Sweden. Cosy, huh?!
Pictures from Christmas Eve! We had a lovely and cosy Christmas this year! I ate so much herring ;O
Tonight I'm going out with my old classmates from my gymnasium/highschool. We're going ta new club
in Växjö called Mint! Right now I'm not feeling it but I probably will when I arrive to Juan's house!
chocolate truffles with raspberry flavor
Dark chocolate truffles with raspberry flavor that melts in your mouth! My favorite Christmas candy of all time, actually, it's my favorite all year around! You can make them without the raspberry flavor or add whatever flavor you want! Let your imagination flow!
Recipe for these:
2dl cream (40%)
300g dark chocolate 70% (Fungerar med Marabou mörk också, ingen blockchoklad bara!)
// That's it for these babys, if you don't want any flavor that is! //
Juice from 15-30 raspberries.
I also added some caco butter because of the extra juice from the raspberries to make the truffles harder, don't remember how much though... perhaps 20g!
Break or chop the chocolate into small pieces. Boil the cream, remove the pan from the plate and add the chocolate, stir until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Add any seasoning you like and cocoa butter if you want, stir until the batter is smooth. Pour the batter into a square shaped mould with baking paper in it (ex: 10x25 cm) and put in the fridge. When the batter has stiffened, garnish it with white chocolate and cacao powder or whatever you like! Cut into squares! Done!
// Dress from Monki, jewelries are gifts and on my lips; the color Russia from MUS! //
I hope you have a really Merry Christmas! We're about to eat swedish christmas food right know! So yummy! Can't stop eat herring!
eau de toilette
Bought this perfume the other day at The Body Shop for 155 sek. I didn't know they had perfumes and body splashes made in the same line as their body butters. Somehow I've missed that... This is the perfume version of the mango products they have and it's my favorite fragrance, it really smells like mango and it's heavenly! I get more than often headaches from perfumes. I actually get headaches from The Body Shop's other perfumes, example from the one named White Musk. But these fruit and flower fragrances, that goes with their lines of body butters, body scrubs etc., just smell good to me, no headache here! I'll probably end up with all of them... well there's actually one or two of em that I get headaches of but however... It's just that I rarely find a perfume I both like and can withstand without getting a headache. Another good thing, the bottles are small so you can easily take it with you, hence the price of 155 sek!
some days are more memorable than others, or that's what people say
// Top - Asos // Skirt - Gina Tricot // Sunglasses - H&M // Necklace - Mango //
Pictures from 1,5 years ago in Sant Pol de Mar, Spanien close to Barcelona. I haven't actually showed you these pictures yet, I went through them a few days ago and decided to do something with them. This is how it turned out! Oh yeah, I know It's christmas soon, and yes it feels kinda weird to edit these type of pictures in the middle of the winter! Hope you guys had a great weekend. I'm in Växjö for the christmas holidays, I arrived two days ago and now the christmas feelings starts to kick in for real!
Oh god.... my hair was really short back then compared to now :O

Another product I'd like to tell you about from Clinique. This clarifying lotion, face toner, exist for 4 different skin types. I like to use number 3 for my skin, combination oily. And this product isn't even that expensive and really works for me. I feel like my skin has gotten so much better since I started to use this clarifying lotion. Maybe it's just a placebo effect but anyway, it's how you feel about it that counts! You'll get 200ml for 195 sek or 400ml for 295 sek at Kicks! I really recommend this face toner, but buy the one made for your skin type!
remember those days
Do you remember those days when you could wear this outdoors without freezing to death? Well those days where 6 months ago. As for right now, I'm doing nothing else but wishing that the summer to come will be hot and sunny! Santa, that's all I wish for christmas!
prototype with viktoria modesta
This video is really great and the artist Viktoria Modesta is so cool. Just watch! Right now I'm at the
office/studio with Fredrik Wannerstedt and editing pictures! Hope you guys have a great thursday!
So yummy, who would think salmon and sundried tomatoes would go that good together?! My dinner tonight!
2 years, time pass fast
// An outfit from 2 years ago... time pass by so fast! Anyway, that day 2 years ago I was wearinng: Sweater - Lager 157 // Jacket - H&M //
// Pants - Monki // Shoes - Nelly.com // Glasses - H&M // Earrings - Pilgrim/H&M // Rings - Glitter/ gift //
It's crazy how fast time pass by, cant believe its 2 years ago these pictures were taken, if feels like last winter/spring! Anyhow, I'm gonna go look for christmas gifts today after work, and later I'm going to the gym. I finally feel healthy enough to workout!
Could kill for this homemade chocolate now... you'll find recipe here! (It's vegan, gluten free etc too!). Anyway, today I'm going away for dinner, and I'm having salmon. It was a few weeks since I ate it last time! Still eating mostly vegan food but I'm having fish and dairy a little now and then!
At Konstfack yesterday, I had a really fun night. Went home around 3 o clock in the morning! Good music, cheap beer and wine, old and new faces, happy people and a lot of dancing which I love! Tonight I'm going away for dinner at Rebecca's place with her friend Natasha. I hope your Lucia and weekend was just as good as mine! Kisses!
Bought these amazing shoes for the even more amazing price, 250 sek, original price is 800 sek! I'm the master on sales yeah. These shoes are from TopShop, I'll wear them even if it's not summer haha.... Tonight I'm attending an event with friends and classmates at Telefonplan here in Stockholm. I bet it's going to be a great evening, just smiley faces, no tears! (If someone shed any tears tonight it's tears of happiness)
Last winter in the Alps. No snow in sight here in Stockholm, nor in Växjö, I guess. I'll be spending the christmas holidays together with my family and my brother's girlfriend in Växjö. Just 5 peeps and a cat cuddling up together at christmas eve, eating a lot of homemade food and candy, opening gifts and just celebrate another christmas together that we've been blessed with. I'm trying to figure out what gifts to give them all. I want to give them something they can have fun with, need or want. 1,5 more weeks to think, think good Ellen!
perfect curls, selfie warning
@stylebyellen on instagram
Sometimes when you really succeed to make the best curls ever, you just have to credit your hair with its own mirror-selfie. So I did, I almost never make selfies like this anymore... I just feel embarrassed posting these pictures. But yet, I never think any less of people I follow on instagram that post selfies from time to time. Anyway, maybe I should stop give a shit of what people may or may not think and just do (believe me I do that too often, like it just get-back-to-me-in-a-painful-hurtful often way). Perhaps that's the key to live a joyful, long, happily ever after life? Well, in that case.... my new rule to live by, starting now! Oh I have so much I want to do now that I couldn't do before, and thats because I don't care what others will think anymore, hehe excited!
I don't really know what this is. But I do know that I have a pair of pants on my head and that this photo was taken a few days ago. Those pants are by the way really nice, from Monki and really comfy! Don't they look beautiful? I promise you to show you an outfit with them on soon, and nooo they will not be on my head!
Oh, how lovely wouldn't this be right know?! It's my name-day today in Sweden, Anna,
one of my two middle names! Celebrating that with some chocolate, yäääs indeed!
I am trying some new hair products. I have no idea if these are good or not. I just went into a store and grabbed something that looked good, hahaha so tactical! Anyway, if any of you have tried Sachajuan products, please tell me your thoughts! I didn't start until 11 today so I went up early to go to the gym, still sore from yesterday but I went anyway. I am gonna take this gym thing serious now!
vegan lentil stew
Made a vegan lentil stew today, I improvised the whole thing and it ended up so yummy. I'll write down the recipe in this post for you guys later today! Now I need to eat this yummy stew and rest, I went to the gym earlier today and now I'm so tired!
(Finally got up from bed)
1 clove of garlic
500 g of finely crushed tomatoes
500 g of finely crushed tomatoes
3 dl red lentils
1 dl Oatly IMAT fraiche
1 dl Oatly IMAT fraiche
Chop the onion, grate the carrots and the garlic. Fry the onion, carrots and garlic with oil and curry (after taste) in a pot. Add the crushed tomatoes. Also add salt, black pepper, dried basil and cayenne pepper after taste. Let it simmer for a while with lid. Add the lentils, and water if necessary. Let it simmer for 10 minutes, with lid, or until the lentils has softened. Finally add the Oatly iMAT Fraiche, vegan creme fraiche, as an option, add a dab on the plate instead, picture above.
Bought this lovely moisturiser in New York, for 26 dollar (roughly 200 sek) and here you have to pay 500 sek... anyway, I love this facial lotion, my skin feels so nice and smooth after using it. I use it both day and night and my skin feels really balanced after 2 weeks use. I'm usually both oily and dry, especially during the winter, so this is just perfect for my skin right now! Do you have any skin care favorites? (I still have my love for Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference, but sometimes it's just nice to try something new, and when you're in the US you really have the chance to try expensive stuff)
I'm invited to a dinner party at Johanna's house tonight, it's one of the girls I got to know in NYC! It's going to be so much fun seeing her again! However, I bought some new clothes from Monki today, hehe, my favorite store! At the moment I'm getting ready for the dinner and soon I'll be heading to the liquor store, feels weird being able to buy liquor legally again haha!
hotel night view
The view from the hotel I lived in with my family the last week in New York, pretty beautiful view from a hotel room right? Anyway, I'm at my internship in Stockholm at the moment editing pictures. Just took a 10 minuets long break to make this blogpost for you guys. After work I'm going to the gym, yes I got my first gym membership yesterday! Yeeeyh haha, and after that I'm going to some sort of event with my friend Kamilja and some friends to her!
These days when the sun never show, I truly miss the blue sky of New York!
no burger no more
A hamburger I ate togeather with Therese in New York, somewhere in Brooklyn.
I'm actually going vegan, kinda, I'm eating plant based food with a few exceptions from times to times. Those exceptions will only be fish and dairy, not meat. And an exception could be when I'm at a restaurant or invited to a friend for dinner etc, I don't want to have a difficult lifestyle, you know, I still want it to be easy, just making better choices for myself! Today I'm making my own butter, and yes it's vegan, I'll tell you the recipe if it's worth telling!
Pics from the High Line in New York, it's a old railway made into a park. Really cool idea and a fun park to walk through!
