Flexitarian – Saturday dinner in the woods

A few months ago I got asked to help some friends decorate their apartament. I got to be their interior designer for a little while and I enjoyed it very much. I love doing anything with shape and colours, weather it is a blank canvas, a fabric, photography, a clean face to do make up on, a total make over, or anything else that can be shaped, reshaped or just created in harmony with shapes, colours and lines. Movement; dance and yoga included. All just for the fun of it! For the vibrant colours and for the love of creativity. 

 A blank canvas, a clean face or even food – all for being creative and playfull with colours and shapes. And trying to look good at times ??

As a thank you they gave Maria and I a gift card at a lokal shop. Almost like a small version of Whole food markets, but only located here in Stockholm. All good merchandise, organic and mostly (if possible) locally produced. I love it, so many good things there! 

 So on our way to our friends house, out in the Woods.. we stoped by and got some good things for dinner. Usually I eat vegetarian, but I don’t want to exclude anything so once in a while – A good piece of meat… with a glass of red wine.. with some great company.  

Toasting to some good news! I’ll tell you more soon…! ?

I hope you all hade a relaxing, good weekend. Lots of love ~ Märta 

Date night ❤

Maria is back after visiting her family in her hometown for almost a week..

And Napoleon and I are thrilled! ?❤ 

Last night after Maria got home we went out on a date. I had booked the tickets already this summer and was so excited it was finally time! 
We first went to Centralbadet for dinner, in their lit up indoor green garden; a sort of light therapy for our dark Scandinavian months, in the middle of Stockholm. 

The food there is a mixer of really healthy meals and Scandinavian classics. I had a Portobello burger with sallad, so delicious!

In the green garden our friends Brittis and Ida met up with us (also known as Eddy and Patsy, if you recall Absolutely Fabulous ?) and made sure the glasses were filled with wine ?? at least for Maria and Brittis. 

A stone’s throw away the show was about to start; The Nutcracker! By Fredrik Benke Rydman – one of Sweden’s most acclaimed choreographer. 

A mixer of street-, break-, jazz dance and balett. 

My heart were singing and my soul were dancing with the performers on stage to the beat of the rythm. I felt like I was floating on the music of the classical notes. I loved it. ❤ 

How so many layers of messages can be delivered and interpret by so many with music, movement and staging says it all. No spoken language needed. ❤ 

Now it is time to give Maria a massage and enjoy the Friday feeling. Napoleon is already on the table waiting ?? Lots of Friday fun and love to you all! ?

Swedish nature and a unicorn

I’m visiting my hometown Alingsås for a couple of days. Celebrating a birthday girl and Father’s Day. I don’t have much time to write when I’m here, since it’s a busy schedule, but I still like to share some pictures with you.

My brother and sister (who is standing on her toes because I’m taller than her) and their kids

Birthdaygirl Nikki and her new unicorn

I went for a (long) walk with my parents in the forest yesterday, along came the dog Alfons who’s my brother’s. Look at this fantastic nature.

Off course we had “Swedish Fika” in the forest next to one of the many lakes around here. The weather couldn’t be better and it was a perfect sunny Sunday walk. A healthy contrast to the sometimes very stressful city life in Stockholm that I’m used to.
