Snapshots: Stockholm

Fjaderholmarna Krog

Stockholm is truly spectacular in summer.
Where else can you catch a boat in the middle of the city and after 20 minutes find yourself on a magical island in the archipelago.
After some exploring you can chill out in this excellent restaurant. Lunch or dinner here is highly recommended

Shrimp salad
Another day another Shrimp Salad

I had A LOT of shrimp salads this week, the best one at Zink Grill a super nice, laid back, trendy french style restaurant 2 min walk from our hotel.
Don’t let the decor fool you, it looks way to much like a Cafe Rouge chock horror, but the food is beyond nice and clientele is very amusing.

We also indulged in Prinsess Tårta, the best cake in the whole wide world.
No self-respecting  swedish café is without this green Blumenthal-esque delight.

We spent a lot of our time in Stockholm on roller coasters.
Gröna Lund is the amusement park a mere 10 min walk from the city center.
Me and the Mr also checked out, or checked in to the fairly new Hotel Nobis (Next door to Acne!!), will post a video review soon.

A visit to Stockholm would not be the same without raiding  Acne, came back with among other things the perfect silky bomber jacket that I’m not taking off, ever!

…and of course I had to get a couple of bottles of  Pure Pine Tree extract.
The essence of Sweden!

Lydmar Hotel, Stockholm

We where staying at Lydmar Hotel while in Stockholm. Can highly recommend it. The über friendly staff made us feel really welcome. Here are some pictures and a short tour of our room. I will absolutely return next time I’m in Stockholm. Perfect location and no need to jump places for dinner/drinks – a big plus when it’s MINUS 16 degrees.

Stocking up in Stockholm

I’m in Stockholm Sweden for the festive period.
It’s so beautiful and cold and christ-messy.

It’s all about kids and cousins and Lego and cats and food with cream, but I managed to sneak out for some essential swedish shopping. This is where I go every time I’m here:

1. Acne on Norrmalmstorg. A must. Still cheaper than London. Loads of nice new things for cruise/spring. So unfair if you live here and is not off to a nice hot resort any time soon. Spring in Stockholm starts in May- if you’re lucky.

Nice big bag with loads of goodies


2. Skeppshult cast iron frying pans. Another must. These pans contains NO nasty chemicals that are released when cooking or scratched. The only thing they might release is some healthy iron. Sure they weigh ehh – a lot! But if you’re interested in keeping healthy invest in cast iron pots and pans.
