The best breakfast spots in San Francisco

THE BEST BREAKFAST SPOTS IN SAN FRANCISCO. In collaboration together with San Francisco Tourism I spent last week exploring San Francisco. I spent a lot of time in the southern part of California when I was younger but this was my first time exploring the Northern part of Cali. I have thought about San Fran many times, what I would think of this city that I have heard so much about but  never managed to visit so it truly was a great joy to get to work together with the tourism board of San Francisco on this. I must say that the city of San Fran went above and beyond the expectations that I had of this city. What I loved the most about this city is how extremely scenic it is, wherever you go there is either a stunning view over the ocean, dramatic hills, gorgeous Victorian townhouses, the beautiful golden mountains or a little bit of everything mentioned above combined. There was something that caught your eye around every corner and I found myself just standing, gazing at all the beauty that San Fran intales as a city.

Something else that I loved about San Francisco was its great selection of cute cafés and coffee shops for breakfast, I was eating my way through San Fran, one café at a time and I found some personal favourite that I wanted to share with you. If you are planning a trip to San Fran and you are a foodie like me, be sure to bring this list of places with you, they are the only ones you will need!

 

THE BEST BREAKFAST SPOTS IN SAN FRANCISCO. I samarbete med San Francisco Tourism så spenderade jag förra veckan i San Francisco, min första gång i denna stad men definitivt inte den sista. Jag har spenderat mycket tid i södra delen utav Kalifornien när jag var yngre men detta var första gången jag besökte den norra delen och San Fran gick above and beyond mina förväntningar. Det jag gillade absolut allra mest är hur otroligt visuell och dramatisk denna stad är, intensiva kullar, branta backar som leder upp till de mest fantastiska utsiktsplatserna med strålande vy över havet samt staden. Sedan så är ju arkitekturen i en klass för sig, otroligt färggranna och utsmyckade townhouses pryder större delen utav staden. Jag stannade upp var och varannan sekund bara för att stå och beundra dessa vackra hus samt knäppa av en bild eller två så jag även kan minnas dom in i framtiden.

Något annat jag älskade med San Francisco var stadens helt otroliga utbud på mysiga caféer och coffee shops så jag tänkte dela med mig utav mina 11 favoritställen i San Fran för att njuta av en härlig frukost! En guide ni definitivt bör backa med er om ni planerar att åka till San Fran anytime soon. Here we go:

Interior design: Our apartment

8 September, 2018
ÖstermalmHemnet

 

INTERIOR DESIGN: OUR APARTMENT. When I started to fill the apartment with furniture my vision was to create a contrast between the classic and old elements of living in a building from 1893 in combination with more sleek design pieces. I have fallen head over heels in love with the furniture that the architect and designer Per Söderberg makes, his pieces have the perfect combination of being both classic and having a sleek design. If you haven’t seen his furniture yet, be sure to check out his website, everything that he does is pure perfection!

INTERIOR DESIGN: OUR APARTMENT. När jag inredde lägenheten så ville jag skapa en härlig mix utav det klassiska och tidlösa som man hittar i denna sekelskiftslägenhet i kombination med mer moderna samt mer sleek pieces. Jag absolut älskar formskaparen samt arkitekten Per Söderbergs möbler, han har ett showroom bara några hundra meter från vår lägenhet och av en slump så gick jag förbi det en dag och föll head over heels över hans möbler. Om ni inte har spanat in hans möbler ännu så bör ni definitivt göra det, wow säger jag bara, allt han gör är ren och skär perfektion!

The renovation of our apartment part 5: The kitchen

25 August, 2018
VedumKök&Bad

 

THE RENOVATION OF OUR APARTMENT PART 5: THE KITCHEN. Our kitchen from Vedum is finally all done, our stone arrived a couple of weeks ago and I’m so happy with the final result! I designed the kitchen together with a kitchen designer at Vedum and I selected everything in the kitchen from head to toe as well as the color of the kitchen, I really enjoyed the process. I wanted a kitchen island where you can put 2 bar chairs and I’m so happy with how the kitchen island turned out, such a social area where you can sit as a guest and enjoy a glas of wine while the host prepares the dinner.

If you follow me on instagram (@afashionistasguide) you might already have seen that I have started the process of styling the apartment a little, I love it so much. I have styled our pantry with a lot of lovely goodies from Eataly. I have also done some more styling in the kitchen that you can’t see on these images but you can see it on my ig-stories if you are interested in seeing more. The furniture that I have selected for the apartment will arrive next week and after that the photographer will arrived and shoot the images for the apartment ad, the apartment will be live on Hemnet in the beginning of September so if you are looking for a top renovated apartment on Östermalm with all the premium qualities be sure to look out on Hemnet in the coming weeks, I will let you know both here on the blog and on Instagram when the apartment is live on the market! I can’t wait to style the apartment next week, I love interior design so much, it’s for sure something that I can see myself working more with in the future!

 

THE RENOVATION OF OUR APARTMENT PART 5: THE KITCHEN. Här kommer bilderna på vårt kök från Vedum, jag är så nöjd med resultatet. Jag designade köket tillsammans med en köksdesigner på Vedum och valde ut exakta färgen till våra luckor och är så nöjd med färgen, en underbar nyans utav grå/grönt. Stenskivan anlände här om veckan och är så nöjd med stenen, vi valde en Silestone som ser ut som marmor. Marmor är ett absolut värdelöst material att ha i ett kök då det är så extremt känsligt, det blir repor hur lätt som helst. Där är Silestone helt fantastiskt då det är en komposit så det är den absolut mest tåliga stenen man kan, så funderar ni just nu på att köpa en ny bänkskiva till ert kök, köp en Silestone, det absolut bästa valet samt kvalitén.

Om ni följer mig på instagram (@afashionistasguide) så har ni sett vid det här laget att jag börjat stylea lägenheten lite smått, har stylat skafferiet samt lite annat smått och gott i köket. I nästa vecka så kommer möblerna som jag valt ut till lägenheten och sedan så ska lägenheten fotograferas och upp på Hemnet i början på september så håll utkik om ni letar efter en topprenoverad mini 2:a (43 kvm) på Östermalm. Det ska bli så kul att stylea vidare lägenheten nu i veckan, jag absolut älskar att inreda!

Our engagement / 2018.07.31

23 August, 2018
CostaSmeraldaEngagement

 

OUR ENGAGEMENT STORY / 2018.07.31. First of all I want to thank you all for the overwhelming love and well wishes from you since I posted about our engagement on instagram 2 weeks ago, it has truly put a smile both on mine and Johan’s faces! We are both in a fluffy engagement bubble right now and we are enjoying every minute of it to the fullest. I love the feeling of being engaged, it creates an even stronger bond and I can’t wait to get married! When I was younger I thought that I would want to be engaged for at least 2-3 years before getting married but I have truly changed my standpoint on that matter, I just want to marry as soon as possible, it’s the most certain I have felt about anything in life, our love.

We have been together for soon 6 year now but I have never ever questioned our relationship or love towards one another even once, since the day we met, that night on December 20th 2012. Johan has been the most crystal clear thing in my life and my love for him has grown stronger and stronger for every day that has gone by. It feels like we have molded into one mind, just by looking at him I know what is on his mind and vise versa and I love that feeling, of knowing someone inside and out, every spectra of his soul. Some people say that they prefer the first 1-2 years when you are newly inlove but I must say that I love the feeling of being over 5 years deep in to a relationship much more, that extremely strong bond that we have created through these years, all the memories we share together, everything we have experienced together, all that in combination with our growing love just beats everything, I feel the strongest bond to Johan, the love he gives me and how he nurtures my soul and mind on a daily basis, that’s the truest form of love.

I can’t wait to grow old and grey together with Johan, creating a family together, creating more memories and traditions together, building our life together, just thinking about these things makes me all excited and bubbly inside. And the feeling of knowing that I have found the one, it’s the purest form of happiness that there is in life.

I’m so thankful that I met the love of my life at such a young age in life, I was 23 years old when we met and Johan was 27 and now I’m 29 and Johan 33. I think about it every now and then, thinking about all the memories that we share from these 6 years that we have been together so far. When we are old and grey we will be able to look back in our photo albums, reminiscing our younger years when we spent our first months together in my apartment in Paris, when I visited him in the alps after knowing each other for only a couple of weeks, the countless adventures we have been on together, these things are priceless and it’s not for nothing that you say that the best things in life are free. Love is the purest form of happiness, just by looking in to Johan’s eyes when he comes back from work everyday fills up my soul with warmth and happiness. Sometimes Johan asks me ‘What are you smiling about?‘ and I simply answer ‘You‘. I need nothing else in my life, as long as we have each other.

2018.07.31 is the day when Johan went down on one knee, on one of the most beautiful and hidden beaches on Costa Smeralda. It was just us two, no-one else around, the only sound was from the waves peacefully rolling in on the cliffs surrounding us. I didn’t see it coming for one bit, he did an amazing job at hiding the ring and acting extremely relaxed and normal. He had taken me to this beautiful and secluded beach and he asked me to sit on a rock so he could take some images of the beautiful scenery, I sat down on the rock and by chance that day I was wearing a ring on my left hand’s ring finger, not thinking much about it when I put on the ring earlier that morning. In the middle of the shoot he says ‘You need a ring that sparkles more!’, I look down on my ring and don’t really understand what he meant but when I look back up I see Johan infront of me on one knee with a ring box in his hands, giving me a beautiful speech which he had to retell me big parts of due to the shock that I was in, all I can remember is Johan on his knee and me bursting out ‘Ja, ja, JA!‘ (Swedish for: ‘Yes, Yes, YES!’), hugging him and kissing him and then removing my ring so he could put on the beautiful eternity ring on my finger.

I can’t wait to marry you Johan, you are the love of my life, my best friend and team member, you fill up my soul with such warmth and happiness everyday, you always make me laugh, no matter what mood I’m in. Just by looking in to your eyes I feel at ease, you are the most beautiful soul and person that I have ever met and just by thinking about that we will get to spend the rest our lives together, growing old together makes me the happiest person alive.

This photo was taken literally a couple of minutes before he went down on one knee

He proposed with a beautiful diamond eternity ring from Strömdahls
