Skansen, Stockholm.

Skansen Djurgarden, Stockholm. My family and I visited Skansen on our last misty morning in Stockholm. Skansen is located on one of the islands in the archipelago that makes up Stockholm, and it is advised as a ‘must see’, so of course we obliged. Skansen demonstrates old Sweden, complete with fully functioning traditional bake houses and coffee shops. We stumbled across one which appeared to…

FIKA

Fika @ Snickarbacken 7, I spent this past weekend in Stockholm with my family where we visited Snickarbacken 7 in Ostermalm. Coffee is a huge phenomenon in Sweden, so much that they even have a word for ‘doing coffee’ – Fika. It was very cosy, and had a very east London hipster vibe about it with artworks on the walls and low lighting. I’ve never been…

Frukost med Styleby

Breakfast  This mornings breakfast was accompanied by the latest issue of Elin Kling’s Styleby magazine that I picked up whilst in Stockholm this weekend as well as some of the postcards I bought from the Horst exhibit at the V&A yesterday.

72 HOURS IN STOCKHOLM

Travel Stockholm in 72 hours – not exactly an easy task. Survival kit must include snacks and comfortable shoes – and lots of stops for coffee and pastries, obviously. Guide to Stockholm Eat: Riche, Operabaren, Snickarbacken 7, T-Bar No trip to Stockholm would be complete without some Swedish meatballs – I got my fix at the Operabaren, set in an atmospheric bar with stained…

CIAO!

Ciao from my Italian getaway to Puglia, feat. the cities of Lecce, Otranto and Gallipoli! Along with some serious heat, we also encountered some seriously angry thunderstorms, bringing down the ‘holiday’ (cc. Madonna circa 1983) morale a little at times but never defeating it entirely.  And now, the summer is officially over. Cue weep. P.s. The granny pants on the washing line might be my favourite picture…

KØBENHAVN / CITY GUIDE 3

CHRISTIANSHAVN WEARING Maje for K-Way raincoat, J.Crew Point Sur jeans and Superga trainers. Above and below: Parterre Christianshavn is a canal-heavy area of Copenhagen which blends a seafaring Dutch vibe with that distinct sense of Danish modernism. We headed there in the hope of some up-close apartment snooping ops and of locating Parterre (pictured above), a French-inspired cafe which we’d stumbled across on Instagram. LOL of…
