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 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.
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)
Blend all of the ingredients until thick and smooth
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
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.
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.
