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!
I'm working in the Studio all day today (It's me and the guys who are renovating the studio). I'm not renovating though haha... I'm retouching some images. I'll start with the prints soon but first I have to run some errands!
Yesterday when Ebba and I had some glasses of wine at Klang Market. Celebrating our careers!
friday and saturday look
My look last Friday but I think I'll go with something like this tonight as well! I'm going out for some drinks with Ebba and a few more friends. Ebba also got a new job! So we're both celebrating a little tonight! I'm working tomorrow so I'll take it easy!
i want to shoot
I want to shoot again! So many idéas in my head right now! But first I need to clean my room... clothes everywhere. I haven't had time to clean or keep an order in my room... so tired after so many work days in a row and long hours! The growing piles of clothes isn't my priority when I get home!
Happy news people! I just got a new job (the kind of job I moved up to Stockholm for!!!) and it's so exciting! I start full time in January but I'm already working some there right now! So let's celebrate that with a drink, or at least a happy picture of me with a mojito in my hands. I'll celebrate with some sleep tonight! So very long, but fun, days at my new job!
It's just a week left before I travel to Växjö and my parents to celebrate Christmas! I'm so excited about eating vegan christmas candy and food. I've been longing for that. Also so happy to hang out with my best gal Julia who's in Växjö during the Christmas Holidays too! I miss you girl!! The images above is of the vegan candy I made for Christmas last year, we did not eat upp all of that haha... I think we still might have a few of these left in the freezer. Due to all of the sugar (and that we kept the candy in the freezer) it still taste good haha!
Made this seed bread yesterday. Really easy to make, only natural ingredients too, gluten free and vegan :). Texture and taste is sublime!
Beautiful weather today but I've been inside working all day. By the way, I'm very soon done with the images I shot a few weeks ago! I am so excited to show you guys the result!
Totally in a bed mode today! In front of Netflix and Christmas movies! I had a great time yesterday with my friends (we went to Södra Teatern) which I am paying for today haha!
chili and chocolate caramel
Chili and chocolate caramel, so yummy! I love the combo of chili and chocolate! One of my fave Christmas candies!
shirt GINA TRICOT jeans LEVIS camera FUJIFILM X100T
I'm working for a photographer today, retouching, printing images and such! So much more fun compared to what I've been doing so far in Stockolm! (Selling clothes and working in stores/supermarkets...) This is what I moved here for you know, so finally!
Alexsandra and I went to a exhibition on Söndermalm in Stockholm today. The photographer of these beautiful surfing images is Adam Klingeteg, who's also from Växjö. We had a photography class together in school many years ago! So fun to see these amazing images and the book "Vågorna". All the incomes from this project goes to charity. You can read more about it here!
view the future
Today and yesterday has been such long days and an even longer awaits for tomorrow! Sorry for so bad update here but I can't really find any time for it right now! To much work during the days and evenings.... but it will be a little less of that soon!
vegan gingerbread cookies
Gingerbread cookies with no sugar (only dates and agave syrup)! Just natural ingredients (besides the tiny amount of bakingsoda) whole wheat spelt flour too... curious for the recepie?! These gingerbread cookies is full of flavour and so yummy! It's not an ordinary recepie, but easy to make and fun to eat! Vegan too of course!
I'm going to the hair dresser tomorrow! I have no clue what I'm supposed to do, but I'm thinking about going a little shorter than the second image! What do you guys think?
coffee and elle
From a good day last summer! I've been working all day, such long day when you don't feel 100% healthy, I think I may have a virus or cold! I hope it's better until tomorrow!
pre photoshoot breakfast
Breakfast before the shoot I had with the designer Ebba! She made home pressed juice with fresh ginger and an amazing smoothie! So good! Today I'm working again, as usual.... it's going to be a long Saturday, especially since I don't feel well. I don't know whats up but it's something! I hope it will disappear during the day!
Images from the beginning of December 2015. I visited my brother in Helsingborg (south part of Sweden). Made vegan meringues out of sugar, vanilla, chickpea liquid and lemon juice! Had coffee with friends in Malmö, visited a Christmas market with mom in Småland and took it easy! Lovely month last year. This years December will be packed with work... I have one or maybe two days off before I head home to my family for a few days during the Christmas Holidays. So... yeah, I work everyday until 22/12, except one or two days then... work work work!
the christmas party image bomb
Haha, Jonna on every image! That girl!!! The images of the food is the vegan choices Jonna and I found on the buffet! It was ok, nothing special... Anyway, I had a blast and got pretty drunk so these are the images I managed to take before I got too drunk and forgot to snap more haha! Probably good too! Anyway, I wore pants and top from Monki!
