Turning 40

December 18, 2018

Hi there, how have you been? I have been quite busy and miss checking in here and talk about this and that. Will go away for the holidays and hopefully bring back lots of new pictures. Anyhow, look at that coat in the picture to the right. It’s from this Fall line from COS and I FOUND it on the street (it’s pretty common in Berlin that people put things they no longer want on the street).

Here I am being drunk with my friend Andrew in Bier Bar. And the next day having coffee with Johan in Kaskelkiez.


Saturday a couple of weekends ago, Johan and I took a walk in Prenzlauer Berg and had a late chicken döner dinner at Kastanienallee.

A picture of me from Frankfurt a while ago and some coffee at La Tazza D’Oro, where I go most of the time if I go out for coffee. Such a laid back vibe.

Hey Malin! I love Malin. We went to Hermanas Wine Bar for some tapas. So good.

Last Saturday it was time for my 40th birthday. I was sick and on antibiotics, so Johan and I took a slow walk around the neighbourhood and ate some ramen.

Had lots of coffee, this one at Silo. Got high on caffeine, went home to rest a bit and then it was time to go to Hermanas again to celebrate with my friends.

This is a teeny tiny thing, but for me it’s pretty huge – I bought myself new Winter shoes, have been wearing the same ones from Clarks for 13 years and they were about to fall apart. These are from Blundstone, classic worker shoes that fit my old lady feet perfectly since they are wide and there are no seams.

Pictures from today now.

A bit obsessed with having new shoes it seems.

Passed by the Christmas market at Breitscheidplatz and had a snack. Came home and have been busy working. I will go to Sweden to visit my family, looking so much forward to it – I have a new baby brother, his name is Elvis, he’s 10 years old and he’s a DOG. Can’t wait to meet him.

So, hope you’re all doing well. I’m 40 and never felt younger. This year has made me very very strong and very careful about who and what I surround myself with. I look forward to being back here when I’m back in Berlin (plan for 2019 is to buy a laptop so I can blog much more often, getting pretty tired of this old machine which takes forever to work on, time for an update, yo!).

Wish you happy holidays,

Sandra x

    Wish you a happy birthday! It’s been almost 10 years I’m following you through your blog.

    Nice coat, that’s a thing that I love from Berlin: second hand clothes everywhere, recycling, reusing…
