Happy belated Holidays!

Hej och god fortsättning! Jag tog en välbehövlig bloggvila i jul, umgicks med familjen, klappade alla djur och träffade hela släkten. Julen innehöll allt som en god jul ska göra; god mat, fina dekorationer, massa julklappar, omtanke och vila. Och ont i magen efter allt godis så klart.

Jag tog åtminstone några snapshots på mobilen på julafton. Har ni sett vilken fin gran ma och pa hittade i år!? (Ni som följer mig på snap vet att jag obsessat lite över den...). Helt fantastisk!

 

Hello and happy belated Christmas! I took a much needed blog rest during Christmas, spent time with family and patted all the pets. Christmas contained everything a good Christmas should do; good food, nice decorations, lot of Christmas gifts, care and rest. And stomach ache after all the candy, of course.

I did take some snapshots on Christmas Eve. Have you seen the tree ma and pa found this year !? (Those of you who follow me on snap know I obsessed bit over it ...) It's amazing!img_9170

Jag i traditionsenlig tomteluva och ugly (fast inte så ful) christmas sweater (den här, med en glittrande ren på) tjoho! Nu är dock julen över för i år och jag tycker alltid det är lite tråkigt. Den där julbubblan med allt fantastiskt mys vill man gärna stanna kvar i lite längre, men tur för oss att nyår tar över! Nu är det fokus på glitter, filéer och nyårskarameller istället. Och nyårslöften kanske? Eller nyårsplaner! Jag föredrar att sätta upp mål och drömmar istället för krav. Mer om det snart. Nu ska jag ut på stan i Göteborg tillsammans med Oscar och flanera. Ha en bra måndag!

Me in the traditional santa hat and ugly (but not that ugly) Christmas sweater (this one, with a gold glittering deer on it) woop! Christmas is a however over for this year and I always think it's a bit sad. I would be happy to stay in the cozy Christmas bubble a little longer, but lucky for us the New Year is taking over instead! Now the focus is on glitter and New year preparations instead. And New Year's resolutions, perhaps? Or New Year plans! I prefer to set goals and dreams instead of demands. More on that soon. Now I'm going out on the town in Gothenburg together with Oscar. Have a great Monday!

A pink & gold X-mas

Julen i Paris känns ganska annorlunda från julen i Sverige. Jag upplever det lite som att det traditionella grön-röda är mer vanligt här i Sverige, även om det såklart finns utrymme för experimentella granar. När jag flanerade omkring på julshoppingsäventyret så fotade jag även lite granar på stan.

Christmas in Paris is a little bit different from Christmas at home. In Sweden it's traditional red and green, even though of course there is room to experiment. I've always had a pink Christmas tree myself, but my family's Christmas tree is very traditional and I love it. Where as in Paris, there's very little red and green. They love to experiment with their decorations.

Ja som sagt, jag förvarnade er ju om att det skulle bli mycket jul här i bloggen. Hoppas ni står ut! Om ni behöver lite hjälp på traven med julstämningen så kan ni ju lyssna på min jullista om ni vill 😉

Yes, like I said it would be a lot of Christmas in ze blog. Hope you can handle it! If you need a lil help to get in the x-mas mood, you can always to listen to my spotify x-mas list 😉

Christmas shopping in Paris

I managed to do almost all my christmas shopping in Paris before heading home. I was actually quite sick but I did enjoy strolling along a lot in christmas decorated streets and stores. And taking pictures of it all (naturally).

Merci ParisYou just have to visit Merci if you're in town and in Marais, love that shop! Very Merci-ish decorated for christmas of course.

Merci Paris

Merci ParisThey have tons of interior things you really want, a lot of unnecessary gadgets and lovely things. And clothing and a resto too.

The Conran ShopThe Conran shop, just by Bon Marché near Saint German, is well worth a visit as well. Gadget and gift heaven!

Swedish Lucia in Paris

Happy Lucia! The 13th of December is Luciadagen in Sweden, which means we celebrate an old saint that sacrificed herself for some reason. Yeah, I really don't remember it, but it's one of my favorite parts about Christmas and when I found out that the Swedish church in Paris would hold an event with a Luciatåg (choir of people dressed in white night gowns, holding a candle in their hand and having tinsel in their hair) I got a ticket straight away.

Swedes may be extremely secularized but is it something we love it's Lucia and listening to old Christmas songs. It's SO cozy!Lucia in ParisI went by the Swedish store, a street away from the Swedish church, and got myself JULMUST, a traditional Christmas beverage. Don't try it, you won't like it, it's a taste you have to get used to (or so I've been told by non Swedes).

Lucia in Paris

 We sat down in the church benches and awaited Lucia and the gang.

Lucia in ParisSo beautiful I shed a tear (true).

Christmas in Paris

Since I have family visiting we've been out and about quite a lot in the city, checking out the holiday decor at the big shops. I was really looking forward to see the christmas tree at Galeries Lafayette and I was not disappointed. It's so beautiful so I had to put three pics up.  Sister & Mom visiting Paris

Sister & Mom visiting ParisThe colors were so lovely this year! They usually change from year to year. So fab.

Sister & Mom visiting ParisWe also went next door to Printemps, a cute tree there too.

 Since it's first of advent today we've had some adventsfika aswell! Mom brought home made saffron buns and soft gingerbread. YumAdventsfikaHaving homemade goodies and the fam here really made me miss christmas in Sweden at my parent's house. It's always very decorated and it lies in the country (when there's snow it's unbeatable). But I'll go home a few days before Christmas and until then I'll have a Parisian chic Christmas decor here (thinking about buying a mini tree... Yep. I'm cray cray for Christmas!).

Wishing you a cozy first of advent!
