Feels so good to be back home in SM. Santa Monica is one of my favorite city’s because of it is a combination of an urban downtown but also a relaxed beach city. There is nothing better and more relaxing to do then start your weekend with biking down to the beach, lay out your towel, drink an iced coffee and listen to a great podcast meanwhile your boyfriend is surfing. It is literally the best therapy in the world 🙂 All stress or concerns I might have will disappear in a second, and I will feel 100% positive, happy and like I can do anything! The beach is my happy place!

 

 

 

Another wonderful week in Stockholm. I love Santa Monica, but there is something special to come home to your hometown. Stockholm is such a beautiful city full of great restaurants, bars, shops, and coffee shops. I was lucky because before I left to travel back to LA spring started to come to Sweden which is the best time of the year. When the sun is out, starting to bloom, people were sneakers and sunglasses, and people are starting to sit at outdoor restaurants seatings. The whole city starts to come to life, and it gives out an amazing feeling.

 

 

I love my job! First of all, I love what I do, my job feels more like an interest than a daily job, but then the fact that I can work from wherever I am which allows me to do two of the things that I love; design and travel. I am fortunate that I can be in Spain and at the same time be able to work on all my creative projects. I think that being out traveling and exploring makes me a better designer because it helps me to get more inspired than if I would just work from the same office every day. And who doesn’t want to travel, get inspired and be the best you can at what you do? 🙂

 

 

Not only am I getting to spend time in Stockholm, Sweden and see all my friends and family but I also got to go to Marbella Spain where I haven’t been for over two years. I usually go twice a year, but when I am living in LA, it is a bit more difficult to have a spontaneous weekend in Spain 😉 Because I have been there many times since I was a kid there is no stress to do a bunch of new activities. It instead if very relaxing and we go to the local market, eat at our favorite restaurants and just enjoy one of my favorite views. Love waking up in the mornings and having a coffee on the balcony, listening to the town waking up.

 

 

 

Last week I booked a very last minute trip to Stockholm Sweden. I have to go home to fix some paperwork etc., so I figured that why not make a nice easter trip out of it? I am born and raised in Stockholm, and every time I go home, I love it more and more. The city is becoming such a fun and trendy place with amazing restaurants, lounges, coffee shops, bars, and shopping. And of course, the city itself has always been beautiful and with so much history which you truly learn to appreciate when you live in LA where everything is new and modern. I love how you can walk everywhere, and it is always a pretty walk where you can just look around and be amazed. One of my favorite places of all time is Eataly which is located in New York and Los Angeles, but it has now opened in Stockholm, so I had to go there. The Stockholm location is my favorite of all of the Eataly’s. It is so beautiful, classy and the food is of course amazing!
