UPDATE + DAY OUT

 
Heya! I know you must think I have forgotten about you all and this blog - but fear not. I'm still here. The last week has been so hectic at work with fashion week and all that, as I've been working on two quite big events for Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney. It's been so much fun, but the last couple of weeks I've literally been absolutely swamped in preparation and planning and then executing the whole thing. This was my first project at the agency and it was an amazing first thing to do. We've been based at The Savoy as well to be able to help guests with anything they might need, so I haven't actually even been in the office since Friday. You are now thinking that that's only three days, but I did work throughout the whole weekend so it's been five days. So much has happened during these five days though, it feels like a month at least. But, because I worked the weekend, I've now got some time off and my weekend starts now. I'm back in the office on Monday. George and I are going down to Devonshire tomorrow as his dad is getting married this weekend, so it will be like a nice little holiday before I get back to reality and normal office hours. 
 
Even though I haven't been updating regularly, I have actually still been collecting material so I now have a few blog posts up my sleeve. I don't know how much time I will have this weekend to update you as I'm away, but I'll be back again next week. 

Anyway - this blog post is not supposed to be about my (amazing) week, it's supposed to be about a very nice day I had with Matilda a few weeks ago. We live only five minutes apart and we have a lovely food market just around the corner from our houses, which we went to one Saturday. It's called Maltby Street Food Market and I would highly recommend it to anyone. We went on a day when it was rainy and windy which was probably the worst day you can go there on, if it's a nice day it's absolutely wonderful there. The food is amazing! It was absolutely rammed with people so it was really awkward to take any photos at all, but let's have a look at the few I did take. 
 
 
This was my food for the day. Such a naughty meal but super yummy. It's like a grilled mac and cheese sandwich with crab, chilli and parmesan. Basically all my favourite things in this world. Sorry if my hand looks weird by the way. #eczema (It's much better now mum, nothing to worry about!). I'm back on the apple cider vinegar and it is making the biggest difference for my skin. 
 
Matilda and I then found shelter in a Swedish coffee shop, also just around the corner from where we live. It's called 'Hej!' and they actually sell some basic Swedish groceries (like lingonberry jam and Swedish crips). Their coffee is nice too so if you are a Swede in London, come check it out! 'Hej' kind of doubles as a florist as well, if you want to pick up some flowers before heading home. x

Även om det verkar som om jag har glömt bort er och denna blogg så är det inte så! Oroa er inte, jag är på väg tillbaka, jag har bara haft världens mest hektiska vecka med jobbet då vi har arrangerat två event för Alexander McQueen och Stella McCartney i sammanband med fashion week. Ovan ser ni lite bilder från när jag och Matilda strosade runt på matmarknad och gick på svenskt kafé! x

GOOD MORNING

 
Good morning my lovelies and happy Friday! I got up a little bit earlier than usual today, so I have time to write a quick blog post before heading to work. This week is my fourth week at Talk PR, I can't believe that it's already been that long. Time flies!
 
Tonight I'm going to have a quiet night in, or that's at least the plan right now. I haven't had a weekend off partying and drinking since October so my body is screaming for a weekend of just staying in and doing nothing. I might go to a food market or something like that tomorrow if the weather is nice, we'll see. The sun is currently shining, but this is London, so the rain could be waiting just around a corner... 
 
Have a lovely day and speak soon! Jx

God morgon, och glad Fredag! Jag lyckades pallra mig up ur sängen lite tidigare än vanligt idag, så jag hinner till och med att skriva ett snabbt blogginlägg innan det är dags för mig att åka till jobbet. Idag har jag varit på Talk PR i fyra hela veckor - tiden har gått så fort! 
 
Ikväll skall jag nog bara vara hemma, jag har inte haft en sådan helg sedan i oktober så min kropp skriker efter att inte behöva göra någonting. Varje helg har det varit någonting som har hänt, oftast något som involverar långa nätter och lite sömn. Imorgon skall jag kanske försöka besöka någon matmarknad, vi får se om vädret är bra. Just nu skiner solen, men det här är London så man vet aldrig vart regnet ligger och lurar...
 
Ha en världsbra dag så hörs vi snart igen! Jx
 

URBAN DECAY SUBVERSION / PERVERSION

 
Good evening my darlings. How are we tonight? 
 
Today is the 9th February, which in England equals Shrove Tuesday, or, with other words, Pancake Day! In Sweden on the other hand, we eat a massive cream cake called Semla today, but they are rather tricky to source in London (and also very, very naughty). Instead, I had pancakes. Super yummy! I made quite a few so that I can have some for lunch tomorrow as well. We don't have a microwave at work, but I prefer to bring lunch with me than to buy out everyday. Both because I can't decide what I want for lunch (there are too many options!) but also because you save so much money by bringing lunch. Not having a microwave narrows down the option of what you can bring for lunch though, but I figured cold pancakes would work. 
 
Speaking about something else - I mentioned in my January Favourites that I've recently fallen in love with Urban Decay's Perversion and Subversion mascara and lash primer. They are amazing. I was a little bit worried that I wouldn't like them as they are a little bit more expensive than what I normally spend on mascara, but there was nothing to be worried about! They make my lashes look really long and full, I'm very impressed. I love the formula, it's quite cream like and applies beautifully. 
 
I'm off to bed in a minute, with my new job I need to get up much earlier than I'm used to which also means I need to go to bed earlier than I normally do to be able to make it through the day. George stays up quite late, which I always have done as well, so it's hard to go to bed early. But he can sleep much longer in the morning than I can, and he is also one of those people who doesn't need much sleep - unlike me. 
 
Sleep tight, speak soon! 

Jx
