Sometimes I just need a nice lunch and some time-off, listening to good music and getting some assignments done. You know, everyday luxury. When those days happen, I’ve got ridiculous cravings for Vidgårda’s hamburgers (the cheddar&bacon one). For 70 kr, the hamburger and fries (fit for a god, it’s like eating crispy greatness) are worth it.
Besides that I’ve gone about my day as usual. To night it’s just me and my sister, so we’ll probably eat sushi and watch Netflix… I wouldn’t want to spend my thursday evening any other way!
So, my family might not be the very elite of culture devoted people. We prefer the history museums to the arts-y ones, and would probably chose a stroll in the park before a night at the opera. But, from time to time we enjoy to be fed what we would otherwise acknowledge as pretentious. So, last night we visited the Photographic museum of Stockholm.We strolled around looking at black-and-white melancholic photos, silently whispering. I can’t help but feel out of place when visiting establishments like that, as if I’ll do something wrong any minute. I guess part of it is because I don’t understand it. Art is subjective, and to be honest what is mostly regarded as ”art” in the photography world doesn’t speak to me as it seems to speak to others.I have to be honest with you; It wasn’t actually the museum or the exhibitions that called to us – It was the food. My family is devoted foodies, so the chance to try out a newly opened (or in this case re-done) restaurant is always exciting. If you’re ever in Stockholm, I would recommend it. It’s a great concept (the greens are in the center of attention for once, not the protein) and a great environment; Rustic, but industrialized – And let’s not forget that the Photographic museum has one of the best views of Stockholm.
Now that the holidays are almost upon us I’ve been browsing stores for gifts to give and food to feast on. I know that it’s still November, but I’ve always said ”fail to plan, plan to fail”. And besides, why not start my Christmas-shopping now? If I do, I have plenty of time to find special and thoughtful gifts for everyone, instead of hastily buying my father a pair of socks the day before.
It isn’t only that though, I actually enjoy walking around all wrapped up in cozy scarves and coats, listening to festive music and diving in head-first when it comes to shopping for christmas – it calms me. And, think about it, it’s a great way to look for things to put on your own wish-list.
I’ve been especially keen on Zara this year – Both the clothing line and their home collection. I like the simplicity, and I’ve been drawn to classics lately. I guess that I’m growing up, and my sense of style with me.
