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.

Used cupcakes for a shoot today and just now found this recipe so I´m taking that as a sign that I have to make some of these ”buttermilk + roasted banana cupcakes with lindt truffle filling & marshmallow frosting” for this week´s long weekend. Looks absolutely amazing….
Ok – just one more weekend getaway before realizing properly that it´s actually Monday and about time to start this weeks work race. Just saw this lovely house for sale and once again got a sudden Gotland craving (I´ve shown it here before then shot by Pia Ulin). Just lovely and with that Scandinavian aura at it´s best.
Friday! One more shoot before the weekend on a lovely bright location filled with sunlight. Have a good one everybody! xx

This week is all about contrasts, the best weather ever with the sun shining and spreading long wanted warmth meanwhile we have the flu wandering around or family, fierce and without mercy. Trying to juggle work at the same time and am so thankful for having great people around me and am so looking forward to a fun shoot on Friday. After all of this I would´t mind checking out in a house like this for the weekend.
