On Friday, me and S went to “Hlemmur mathöll”, again or again for me at least. I love that place as you have a few food options to choose from at the same place. This time me and S tried out “Kröst”, we shared the charcuterie platter first which was ok, could definitely improve a bit, too much sausage pieces everywhere for my taste, I like more “charcuterie meat slices”. And then I took the “kinda fillet” (I wanted the beef though, but it was finished…) and S took the burger, but he actually wanted to try out the burrito place but they had closed already at 21.00… on a Friday?!… But anyway, the “kinda fillet” was very good and S thought the burger was OK as he doesn’t like cole slaw that much hehe. I like cole slaw so I will need to try out the burger next time.
On Saturday I went to the Champagne brunch at Laugar Spa, I met up with our Gudrun and Melkorka. It was a very nice little meet and we got to try their new products they just released. I love lemongrass and the smell from the lemongrass body shower oil and the mist is so good!!
I’m going to Sweden soon and I can’t wait!! Never could I imagined that I would be that excited to go back to Sweden haha. I’m heading to Stockholm and Borås, S is also coming after the football season is done but I can’t wait that long. ;)
Here are some pictures of my weekend <3 And yes, all those food pictures, the only thing I take snaps of haha.
This weekend I had a visit from a friend from England so I took her downtown and showed her around. We went for a lunch visit to “Hlemmur Mathöll” and tried out the vegan burrito. It was very good, had a lot of mushrooms and I love mushrooms! On Saturday evening we had a nice dinner at “Apotek restaurant”, one of my favourite restaurants In Iceland. So good food there.
Sunday was a very easy day, exactly how Sunday’s should always be. I prepared an easy but very good Sunday dinner for me and S <3. Lamb prime, oven-roasted potatoes, fried broccoli, mushrooms and red onion with a white wine sauce. Yummy.
This week I enjoyed the Blue lagoon two times haha. Thats how it goes when you get visitors. My aunt and her family was here last week and now my friend from England is here for a visit. Not bad at all as I love to relax in the hot water.
I couldn’t manage to take any good photos with my camera the first time as the weather wasn’t that good, it rained and was very windy. But the second time it was so much better, perfect lighting and no wind. So me and my friend Sofia<3 snapped some quick photos before we enjoyed the lagoon. But now I think I will have some break until I visit the blue lagoon next time haha.
My white bikini is from -KOPPER & ZINK- One of my favorites at the moment. <3
I had such a great time at the H&M launch party, I’m very happy that they are finally opening in Iceland. I know that the Icelanders have been waiting for this moment for a very long time!
We started the day with a very nice dinner and cocktails at Geiri Smart, that warm chicken salad we ate was delicious and this cocktail, I’m obsessed!
I got to wear this amazing H&M Studio dress for the party, I loved it! The perfect black maxi dress that fits with everything, both with high heels or some cool sneakers. It depends if you want to be a bit more fancier or more casual. I whore it with white sneakers and my leather jacket. The dress will be out in September/October.
The store itself is super nice, much better than I expected! I can’t wait to go there soon again and do some shopping, and as I’m Swedish I always feel a bit like home when I’m visiting H&M haha, it’s the same with Ikea. Home sweet home.
Some quick polaroids my bf took yesterday. When the lighting hits the best spot in the kitchen, it’s always a good idea to take up the camera and take some updated natural polaroids. Specially now when you just got home from a sunny trip and feel a bit tanned ;) and when my body is in shape.
I missed the Swedish Midsummer this weekend, for the 3rd time in a row, it’s too bad. But still I had a blast! On Friday we celebrated our Elísabet and her man’s 30th birthday at Oddsson, it was a super nice evening and I had a wonderful time!
On Saturday it was the big graduation day in Iceland, and I had also baked two different cupcakes for my sister in law’s graduation as you can see on the pictures. I did one chocolate cupcakes with nutella frosting and one carrot cupcakes with vanilla frosting, super yummy! So went to my sister in law’s graduation party on the day and then to my bf friend’s graduation party. It ended down town for a drink.
Sunday, finally some good weather, and the first time I could sunbath on our balcony, I got very happy as I always get when the sun shows up. ;) We also went for dinner down town. Perfect Sunday!
I’m so grateful to be a part of Glamour Iceland, to be cooking for the magazine and share my recipes with you. It’s always been a dream to work with food and this is a step towards my goals. My first issue was in May where I shared a delicious bruschetta with tomato and Cantaloupe, a tomato risotto with lamb chops and parmesan crisp and a super easy dessert with white chocolate mousse. You can find the recipes in Icelandic here: Glamour Iceland and visit my food site for english and more recipes: Jensdeliciouslife.com .
The June issue is out and I’ve shared three new awesome and easy recipes, see last picture for a sneak peak. You need to check it out, you will love them. <3
Ps. My pie next to the magazines is one of my new favorites, healthy rhubarb crumble pie with coconut whip, so good!!
As you might remember I was in Barcelona for work a few weeks ago. I also went to Finland to my MA (mother agency) and then to Stockholm for a meeting with one of the best and biggest agency in Sweden called MIKAs. And my meeting was to hopefully get signed with them. And yes, great news as I captioned it! I did get signed! I’m so happy for that, also as it is my home country and that MIKAs is a very good agency to be with. I’m so thankful for this!
The pictures above is some quick polaroids they took when I was there. :)
Yesterday we went to our friends cabin and had a wonderful evening with some Easter celebration and a super nice dinner. It’s so nice to get away a bit and just chill with friends. We actually did this last Easter as well so it has become some sort of a tradition. So cozy. We stayed there for one night and are now back home in Reykjavik.
At the moment I’m preparing another dinner at our place with my bf’s sisters coming over. It will just be a chilled Saturday with delicious food. Perfect. :)
