I wish I could give you a full guide to Berlin but once there (without kids) and no weather to fully enjoy we just kept it all about good food, sleep and seeing friends. This weekend was a gift from some friends to my husband when he turned 40 last year and a big part of the trip was for him to run the Big25. Me and our friends cheered along when not having massive amounts of food and taking pictures of this from above. Here are bits and pieces of what we did and I can highly recommend all the places we went to (we unfortunately missed Lode & Stijn that is supposed to be really good but will definitely try it next time. Also not in the pictures – we went to Grill Royal and had amazing sweet potato fries and the best meat I´ve had in a long time).
1: We where staying in Soho House Berlin and if I could just show you the complete loveliness of this inspiring interior. However there is a strict no-cameras-aloud in some of the best areas, so follow the link above if you wish to see more. Here a pic of our bed, like sleeping on clouds. Blue velvet and the biggest thing ever. 2 & 7: Breakfast in bed, luxury. 3 & 12: walking around Berlin finding hidden gems in every corner. 4 & 9: found many pictures in my phone of incredible ceiling action, no 4 from restaurant Cecconi´s and no 9 from Pauly Saal. 5, 6, 13 & 15: great food and atmosphere at Cecconi´s. Don´t forget to get a reservation. 8, 10, 11: Picked restaurant Pauly Saal mostly because I was hoping for a lunch outside on their lovely terrace but it turned out it was closed. No disappointment at all nevertheless as the food in this place is just incredible. 14: Product heaven in our bathroom with products from Cowshed.

Even though I´m by my desk with tons of paper work in front of me I feel so very happy that Spring is finally here. The sun is shining, the birds are all ecstatic outside and within a a week some holiday time. Hope you all are having a great day xx

Touch down LA for Christmas and New Years. It´s always a bit strange finding Christmas spirit among palm trees and summer views but getting these rays of sun and just being able to spend time with family and friends is gold. I´ll up date the blog here and there too, but you are also welcome to join me on Instagram for daily views. Hope you all are having (or at least soon) a nice holiday xx

Yesterday I was invited to celebrate the most amazing hotel Ett Hem´s 3 years anniversary and it was as always perfection. So glad we got to walk through the rooms as well, never wanted to leave. If you would like to see more I´ve written about this place before here and here.
