Going Americana

I have always been a bit sceptical towards american food but with the help of another season of Top Chef and the blogs of V and Niblet, things have changed. I now realise the glory that is American food. Amongst my new favorite dishes are: Mac n' Cheese, creamed corn and bread puddings (especially the one containing chocolate).

The Stripe

One of my favourite patterns of all times is the Breton Stripe. The Breton shirt was officially created by the 27th March 1858 Act which introduced this blue and white striped knitted shirt in the uniform list of the French seaman.
It was said that this stripe allowed to locate more easily a man fallen into the sea. Nevertheless I thought it would be fun to pay tribute to the Stripe for a whole week. I don't know how many of my co-workers noticed it...

Monday Top: Marimekko, jeans: Monki

Tuesday Dress: Permanent Vacation

Wednesday Top: Made in the shade, jeans: Cheap Monday

Thursday Top & Chinos: Gina Tricot

Friday Top: Polarn o Pyret, skirt: Zara

So, what should my next theme-week be about?

Holidays are coming

I know it's a bit early but I simply had to post this video. There isn't much that gets me in a Christmas mood more than this commersial. They say the sale of Coca Cola increases over Christmas. In the land of Julmust, it's stiff competition.

Beer Geek

Yesterday, my brother, Jonas and myself went to Systembolaget for their Top 10 beer-tasting event. It was great. We tried 10 different beers, some was in stock at Systembolaget, others was not.

One of my favourites was this ale (Gouden Carolus) from Belgium. Luckely, Systembolaget sells it. My other favourite was also an Ale, but from the UK (not available at bolaget). After the tasting we ventured out in to the streets of a stormy Malmö with a new found love of beer. This won't be the last beer tasting event I attend, belive me!

The word of a massive shrimp sandwich had spread around the office like a wild fire so me and Sanna decided to crash the projectleaders after work at Grand Hotel in Lund.

And it was massive! And this is the small one!! After the sandwich and a couple of Paulaner weiss bier, I wanted something sweet..

This must have been the most expensive piece of Cheesecake I've ever had! 100 kronor for this saffron cheesecake with orange glaze. But it was really nice, I must admit.

Red wine

This is my favourite red wine of the moment: Campolieti Ripasso (no 6792 at Systembolaget). Perfect for those days/nights when you are staying in, eating a good meal and watching a movie.

Lately I've been freezing my butt of in the windy, wet and cold weather that is upon us now. My wool-jacket doesn't quite do the trick anymore. So I bought this coat from Elvine... you like?
