Another favorite spot of mine somewhere in the Cycladic of the Aegean Sea (on Mykonos of course) is UTOPIA – overlooking Elia beach and the view is magical. All rooms got their own private infinity pool offering panoramic sea views. We usually went here after a big sale this summer – and that happens a lot hehe 😉 x
Last year, when I read a short book on how successful people spend their weekends, I found that–no big surprise–many successful people worked on days starting with “S.”The biggest reason? People who achieve great success in their lines of work often like what they do for a living. Working on weekends is the flipside of having flexibility during the week. Love to be able to plan my days according to my mood and I often find weekends to be my most productive days x
It just hit me – the Bali fever and I’m not talking about the serious illness caused by a virus transmitted by the female A. aegypti mosquito. NO! I need to go back to Bali soon – we had the best weeks around Bali last year and can’t wait to go back.
Why visit Bali? The question should be: why not visit Bali? It’s the perfect destination for everyone. Resorts are fantastic, the beaches are full of places to relax or water sports to try out and the locals are incredibly warm and friendly. I initially knew that I wanted to stay somewhere close to the ocean first but Ubud immediately stole my heart. If I had one word to describe Ubud it would be lush – surrounded by rice paddies and jungle, it felt so green. Ubud is quirky, Bohemian and equally full of tourists and people trying to sell you something haha.
Where to stay? If you don’t mind being out of town I can highly recommend the Alila Ubud with one of the most Instagram-worthy infinity pools I have ever seen. And can’t even start with the food on this magical island – a little slice of culinary heaven and more importantly has something for everyone: carnivores, vegans, raw foodies and everything in between.
If you want to learn more about Balinese beauty secrets head to the Kayumanis Ubud Private Villa and Spa – spend a bit to much of my time here. You will pick your own ingredients and learn how to make a traditional Lulur before getting massaged outdoors. See you soon Bali x
There’s no better way to relax than going skiing – just look at our morning view. Feel that super ice-cold air hit you and you’re not sure if the adrenaline pumping makes you body freeze or boil. My skin is tingling, and I know I’m wide awake x
Brunch & Cake located at C/Enric Granados, 19. Nobody can possible have missed this place on Instagram. There main focus is plating and everything looks beyond beautiful. How did it taste then? They really make everything with care, passion and wherever possible, they use organic and locally sourced ingredients. This place really woke us up after a long night out x
Finally! Had to re-fuel my vitamin D level – also known as the sunshine vitamin, we synthesise this essential nutrient through our skin’s natural reaction to UV from the sunlight. Unfortunately, for people living in the northern hemisphere, the winter sun is simply not strong enough for us to make the level of vitamin D that we need to stay healthy. Luckily I’m not stuck in Sweden all year haha. Vitamin D is needed for healthy bones, but less well known are the effects is has on our immune system and its vital role in keeping our mood elevated. Thank you Barcelona for charging me up x

So thankful for everything I have seen and done this year and know that it’s all because of me – I made this happen. I know for a fact that travel the world makes you grow constantly. So happy I’m still alive and will keep challenge myself as long as it makes me stronger. Hope and feel that 2018 will be even better than 2017 – I will keep on working harder to see even better results at work, learn to relax and enjoy every moment, spend more time with my family and of course travel to South Africa, Tokyo and São Paulo (my top travel destinations right now). Will start 2018 with one of my best friends in one of my favorite cities. So ready for a new year x
Had a meeting at Grand Hotel yesterday. I’m organizing everything around a fair that we have here in Sweden beginning of next year. When my boss asked me where to have this event – I knew exactly where haha. I can spend hours here and Gran Hotel is is without a doubt the most beautiful hotel in Stockholm. Situated in the best waterfront location imaginable, the hotel overlooks the Royal Palace and Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s old town. Don’t miss their spa with hot saunas and cool dipping pools x
One of my favorite go to juice-bars in Paris – Juice Lab – 11, Rue Jacob. Strongest ginger-shot you’ll ever try – it gives you goosebumps big time x
The best way to discover a place – is of course by helicopter. Our tour started with views over the magnificent Megalochori Village where you have views towards the beautiful red, white and black beach. Followed by Oia – Santorini’s most talked about village with the marble streets, the stunning blue dome churches and the traditional architecture. Finished with Palea and Nea Kameni – well known Santorini Volcanoes. And couldn’t ask for better company – my sistah x
