|Hotel breakfast, anything like it?|
As I know many bloggers state from time to time is that what you see on the blog is not real life.
It is mere 5-10% of what is really going on. This is also why I think people like blogs, you can create your own reality, both as a blogger and a reader.
My life is not just travel, food and dresses, its filled with plenty of normal stuff such as mainly work, late nights, grey days, sunny days etc. I stand in queue at the supermarket, I iron, I clean my house, I sit in traffic (a lot!!), I attend meetings, I work in excel, I cook, I miss people etc, as you can see, in general very “normal” stuff.
On the other side, I’m very fortunate, my job has taken me abroad and I get to experience things that I would almost not dare to dream of before. This is just a documentation of the more extravagant side of my life. Of course I frame it so you all will like it more. So, having said that. Here comes a potpourri of pictures from my latest travels to Morocco.
I really love discovering new cultures and when I get the opportunity to do so I enjoy to invite you to come with me through the lens of my camera.

I’m in the land of Macaroons and the city of coffee shops. Only for a brief visit but a very nice tasting one. To my surprise, and almost everyone elses as well it was snowing this morning and the ground is covered in a white blanket. I actually haven’t seen snow in some time. Around 1,5 years or something like that. I have now stuffed my face with delicious coffees and carbs!
|The land mark of all land marks|
|I would also like to wish a happy new year to all my Chineese friends and readers around the world!|

As many of you might know, I have a seamstress here in Nigeria that I make good use of. To make a dress the cost is around 20 usd. I bring the fabric though. She has been making clothes for me for the past 3 years and we have gotten to know eachother to the extent that she knows my style and what Im after in that sense when I describe something.
I like clothes and to look at beautiful things, can be anything from a shape or a color or a fabric. When I was younger I did a lot of beading, earings, necklaces, etc. I also had a small workshop one summer at "Fryshuset" in Stockholm where kids that were on school holiday could come and do beads with me. I work in the business sector so for me this is a way of getting some creativity out and to relax. I usually need the pieces I make for a specific occasion. As the one in the picture Im suppose to wear at an event this weekend, if it gets finished in time that is. Feathers and Thai silk. I ll show you the finished result if you want?

I have the following collection of items on my dining room table. It’s some Swedish candy, a South African bird made out of metal and a salad dressing container and a bowl with bananas. Don’t you like my carpet btw? I really like carpets, it gives such a nice warmth to a room (not that I really need more warmth in Nigeria…)

This weekend I had the opportunity to visit one of my favourite places in Europe, Istanbul. I was there for work and met up with two of my best friends for some celebration of what is to come.
It is a such a stunning city with good food and shopping. The weather was nice, +15 degrees during Saturday day, we even sat outside for breakfast!
