I had attempted to go on holiday to Portugal back in May, where it decided to torrential rain the entire week we were there. Came home three days early. Pale.
So last weekend, desperately seeking sun, we decided – perhaps in a slightly unstable, yet I like to think spontaneous mindset – to go to Spain for a long weekend. The Sheraton Salobre resort in Gran Canaria provided the perfect pink desert retreat to show off my favourite Marni sandals and get us sufficiently burnt in the process. We managed to snag a cabana on our last day which made leaving even more painfull and with the addition of a trip to the spa and fully stocked breakfast buffet, I wished I could have stayed longer.

72 HOURS IN STOCKHOLM

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 glass ceiling. Riche is a really cool spot for dinner – it’s got fun interiors and their next door LillaBaren has some amazing baroque plasterwork and is a really buzzing place to get a drink.

Go:

Skansen park (more on this at a later date) is a great introduction to Swedish culture – it recreates old Sweden and houses bears and elk, as well as red squirrels, one of which scampered up my sisters leg in a moment of pure hilarity. Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s old town, has beautifully coloured buildings and lots of coffee shops. Södermalm is another cool area which needs much more exploring on my part, but is home to lots of hip restaurants and shops.

Wear:

Anything warm as above, i.e. coats from &OtherStories and Cos, Scarves from Moss Copenhagen and jumper from Cos.
