HOME SWEET HOME

AROUND THE WORLD

With Jozefina and Linda before dinner <3Great food at VINCI in Borås, the perfect spot for cocktails too! The best café in Borås, Viskan. And my favourite “vanilla sauce with pie” ;) yuuuummie.

Sooo tasty buns, a must try while in Gothenburg – JINX food truck

A perfect and sunny day in Gothenburg.  A wonderful shellfish dinner at my aunt place. And I made a delicious dessert inspired by my fav dessert at “Supper restaurant”. I will definitely do this one again, with a nicer touch and post the recipe for you! Lunch at VINCI <3 First time we tried Lilla bro in Borås, a very cozy place. My love Jozefina <3 


Had a wonderful stay at home as always <3 We’ve been with my family and friends that I’ve missed so much as I always do. We’ve spent most of our time just chilling and been to many cafés haha, that is what you mostly do in Sweden as we have so many cozy cafés everywhere. I’ve been eating a lot of cakes (too much), but I can’t say No to that when I’m here. ;)

Me and S is heading to Stockholm now for 2 days and then we are flying back to Iceland. I can’t wait to meet my little boy Knútur (my dog). Yes, he is the big reason why I actually want to get back really really soon haha. Going to cuddle with him so much!!

AROUND THE WORLD

 At the GLITTERxTREND event in Stockholm 

Delicious brunch at Miss Clara Hotel 
Such a cozy garden café called Rosendals trädgård Me and the other models I worked with in Finland, such a great team! <3 The cutest b&b ever, we stayed here during the shoot.  

Awesome Mexican restaurant with a good lounge bar called YUC in Stockholm.  Fav dessert at Supper <3   Had a perfect stay at Hobo Hotel with my <3 Some bts from an awesome shoot, such a great crew. Can’t wait to see the results!   ILY Roslinda <3 Typical Swedish foooood, well needed!   Love the food at this place! Minh mat


Here are some pictures from my trip to Stockholm, visiting one of my best friends Roslinda, my “sister” as everyone says haha. Had such a great time as always. <3

I love Stockholm and it’s definitely my favourite capital in Scandinavia, if you haven’t been there you must have a visit! And if you need any recommendation just ask, I have been to so many good restaurants and I LOVE the food there.

I was there for a few days first and then I had a job in Finland so was there for 3 days before heading back to Stockholm and S finally came! We stayed at Hobo hotel for two nights and then we took the train to Borås (my hometown).

Currently we are still here in Borås and just taking the days as they come. S is free so we don’t have any rush to come back to Iceland. But we miss our baby Knútur so much!!! So we have booked tickets back on Wednesday next week. But we are actually heading back to Stockholm for 2 days first for a job before heading back to Iceland.

WKND UPDATE

DAILY LIFE

I love these weekend updates <3

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. ;)

CAULIFLOWER SAUCE

JEN'S DELICIOUS LIFE

IMG_5049IMG_5050IMG_5051IMG_5052

A delicious and creamy sauce made of cauliflower, making it much more healthier and lighter without all that cream in the sauce. I’m using Almond milk instead and as you mix cooked cauliflower it gets that super creamy consistence. Just perfect. I used this sauce over some whole grain pasta and chicken and topped it with some oven fried bacon, so yummy! Better choice for healthier food. :)

YOU NEED:

1 Cauliflower, cut into smaller pieces
1 onion, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 dl chicken or vegetable broth
3 dl almond Milk

DO THIS: 

  1. Place cauliflower, onion, salt, garlic, and chicken broth in a saucepan and cover with a lid. Heat on medium high and steam the mixture for about 5 minutes, or until the cauliflower is soft.
  2. Add everything from the saucepan to a blender and pour in the almond milk. Blend until the sauce becomes smooth and creamy. Taste the sauce and add more salt and pepper, if needed.

 

ENJOY!!!

MY WKND

DAILY LIFE

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.

BLUE LAGOON & VISITORS

AROUND THE WORLDDAILY LIFE

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

MY ACAI BOWL

JEN'S DELICIOUS LIFE

Processed with VSCO with t1 presetProcessed with VSCO with t1 presetProcessed with VSCO with t1 presetProcessed with VSCO with t1 presetProcessed with VSCO with t1 presetProcessed with VSCO with t1 preset

I must say that I LOVE acai bowls! I tried it first time when I was in New York and after that I ate it almost everyday when I was in US. You can easily find places to buy acai bowls everywhere in US, but here in Iceland I haven’t found it anywhere. Luckily I found acai powder in the supermarket, I was so happy that I could finally make my own acai bowls! And I’m not gonna lie, it’s quite expensive but it’s so worth it.

You might wonder what Acai is? And it pronounced Ah-sigh-EE!! Acai is a berry that comes from Central and South America. You can buy them in a powder or frozen form. They say it’s a ‘superfood‘ because of it’s antioxidant properties. Specifically the ability to boost immunity, repair and prevent cell damage and improve heart health. The berries have a yummy slightly fruity but rich taste.

Acai bowls are very easy to make, it’s basically like a smoothie but you want that right texture. You want a consistency that is thick enough to be scoopable, so not too loose. Almost like a sorbet. And then you just top it with what you desire.

YOU NEED: 
2 port.

1 banana
2 handful frozen raspberries
1 handful frozen blueberries
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp acai powder
1-2 dl coconut milk or any kind of milk (start with 1 dl and add more if needed)

DO THIS: 

  1. Blend all of the ingredients until thick and smooth
  2. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and add your desired toppings.

What I topped my bowl with:
My homemade granola
sliced strawberry and banana
1 tsp peanut butter
coconut flakes
honey

ENJOY! :)

MY HOMEMADE GRANOLA

JEN'S DELICIOUS LIFE

Processed with VSCO with t1 presetProcessed with VSCO with t1 presetProcessed with VSCO with t1 presetProcessed with VSCO with t1 presetProcessed with VSCO with t1 presetProcessed with VSCO with t1 presetProcessed with VSCO with t1 preset

When you have made homemade granola for the first time you’ll never want to buy ready granola in the store anymore. It’s so easy to throw together and after the first time you’ll have all the ingredients at home and can just make new granola anytime.

You have many options to sweeten your granola, I used honey but if you’re vegan you can use for example: agave syrup, coconut nectar or maple syrup.

YOU NEED: 

4 dl oats (gluten free if needed)
1 1/2 dl grated coconut
1 dl linseeds
1 dl pumpkin seeds
1 dl sunflower seeds
1 dl walnuts, roughly chopped
1/2 dl chopped hazelnuts
1/2 dl coconut flakes
1/2 dl cacao nibs
1 dl dried cranberry
1 dl raisins

3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
3 tbsp honey
0.5 dl water
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cardamom

DO THIS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 C. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together melted coconut oil, honey, water, cinnamon and cardamom.
  3. In a big bowl stir together all other ingredients except the dried fruits. Pour the liquid over the oat mix and stir everything together.
  4. Spread the oat mixture evenly over the baking pan.
  5. Bake the granola until the oats are golden and dry, 15-20 minutes.
  6. Let the granola cool and then stir in the dried fruits.
  7. Store airtight at room temperature for up to 1 month.

 

ENJOY! :)

H&M LAUNCH PARTY ICELAND

DAILY LIFE

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.
