Longing for Green (Lund Botanical garden)
I'm sick and tired of this grey that's outside now. I need some green in my life, and therefore me and my friend Emelie made a spontaneous trip to Lund and the Botanical garden!

The light in here is kinda magical. It flows in through tall windows in a few of the rooms, and in the others there's all windows, I mean.... It's a greenhouse. But in either end of the greenhouse is two taller buildings and in there are these tall, rounded top windows. I love that detail, and I feel like more greenhouses should have them!

Emelie thought it looked like this tree in the picture above had popsicle sticks all over the trunk, and it kinda does, doesn't it?

In a few rooms there are fish in small ponds, and also these water lilies that I've seen in bloom at other times of the year.

In another room there was this. Some kind of steam or carbon-dioxide ice maybe. At least it was a nice touch, and with all the fern it felt a bit like a magical forest!

Also, this!? I kind of love some cactae, but a lot of them really just look like they're big piles of mold. I actually like the bigger, greener kind more than the small ones, to the tall trees in the uppermost picture are the ones I would like to have in maybe a smaller version!

They were closing up at 3pm, so we went to take a fika break. I really recommend Ariman in Lund, these big piles of dessert were just 30SEK, and that's not a lot! The sodas were 25SEK though, so if you drink coffee it's probably more worth it.

And it tastes great too! I've been there once before, but that was a long time ago, and didn't feel like it was the best place then. But this time? Well, I would gladly go back there!

And that was that with that from the spontaneous trip to Lund and the botanical garden greenhouse!

Ski Trip to Skeikampen, Norway
IMG_5306(red)

I never told you about the trip we made to Norway at the beginning of year, did I? No, I didn't! So here we go.

IMG_5337(red)

We went January 3rd by car through landscapes and landscapes of first green, then whiter areas like in the pictures, and then we came to a place completely covered in white snow.

IMG_5351(red)

We arrived after dark, but we took a walk to see the surroundings anyway. This was part of the hotel we stayed at, all cozy and covered in snow!

IMG_5387(red)

The day after that I tried skiing for the first time. It's not really my cup of tea, to say the least. I don't like the cold, the hurting of legs and feet, and neither do I like the speed when you don't really know what you're doing. Really, any sport that isn't quite calm and in need of rhythm I tend to avoid.

IMG_5406(red)

So I stayed in most of the time when my boyfriend and his parents were out skiing. It wasn't that bad actually, since our room was this beautiful! The gold details really put an extravagant feeling to the quite old hotel.

IMG_5408(red)

I also took a lot of shorter walks around the hotel grounds. The snow is so fascinating, I've never seen anything like it before! I mean, southern Sweden doesn't really get a lot of snow at all. And this was freezing cold and stuck at the trees. We actually had -23° one day, and the warmest day was at -10°.

I could get used to the views though! We talked about next time, and that we should go to a place where I can get in the lift, go up to the top, take some photos and stroll around ut there, and then get in the lift and go back down again. Apparently they exist, and I feel like I need one of those to ever get the views from the tops!

IMG_5568(red)

At least the light is amazing! I don't think I've ever looked this good in -20° and sun. Not that it's a thing that happens a lot, but the light and the sun made everyone glow in a way that you don't see often.

IMG_5517(red)

Also this. The old furniture and interior of this hotel was kind of stunning. I really liked the sofas, maybe not for our home, but they were so so so comfortable! Like nothing I've ever sat in before.

But all trips have an end, and ours was only 5 days long. I took a lot of photos, some good and some bad, but I really felt a connection to the cold, white nature up at the mountain. So trips to mountains? Yes. Ski trips? No. Unless they include me not skiing and instead include walks or rides up mountains to suck in some nature and thin but fresh air.

Papillon
IMG_8011(red800)

One of the cutest dogs I know is this one. His name is Illias, and he belongs to my boyfriends french cousin. He's a Papillon and doesn't understand a lot of Swedish, but body language and tone of voice takes you a long way.

This picture was taken last week, when we went home to visit, and Thalia (my boyfriends cousin) was there visiting as well! We don't see her that often, since she lives in Paris, but when she's up here we try to make it so we can see her.

 

Do you have any favourite animal? Or maybe a specific breed you prefer when it comes to dogs, cats, rabbits? Tell me in the comments!

New In: 24mm Camera Lens
IMG_7825(red800)

 

So a few weeks ago I bought a new piece for my camera, to help me with my photography. It's one that I've been after for a while, since I only do fixed aperture while photographing and I've had problems getting everything in the picture without breaking my neck or moving the camera too much into weird angles.

So this one's a real bargain, since it's pretty cheap, easy to use and also makes for great quality photos! It's new this year, and I've had my eye on it since I found it in January, and I could finally buy it in the beginning of May.

So starting like, tomorrow, a lot of the pictures on here will be taken with this amazing little piece of equipment. Tell me if you like it, cause I sure do!

New In: Chandelier Yellow
IMG_7478(red900)

Hängde lite i Köpenhamn i helgen och kom hem med bland annat det här på bilden ovan! Ett supergult nagellack från & Other Stories, som är precis vad jag letat efter ett tag! Återkommer med åsikter när jag hunnit testa det!

//Hung out for a few hours in Copenhagen this weekend and came home with, amongst other things, this pictured above! A very yellow nail polish from & Other Stories, and it's exactly what I've been looking for for a while. I'll be back with comments as soon as I've tried it out!
