When Instagram got fun again

March 17, 2019

Hi, how was your weekend? Mine was good, I started going loco on instagram stories and posted a lot this weekend. Followed my gut feeling and did what felt good – posted snapshots from my walks again, haven’t done that much the past few years. Will share some of them here, for those of you who don’t have instagram. If you do, my instagram is to be found here. Dark hair in this picture. Have had dark hair for 2 years now. Time for a change?

A new thing came up – a version of the Berlin tiles pictures that my instagram is known for.

This happened because I needed to get closer to the door with my big black coat to be able to get some tiles in the picture, through the glass. Like the result.

Remembered to share a good thing, sharing is caring and I have another one of Johan’s kitchen hacks to share soon.

Yesterday we headed over to Boxi for two rounds and coffee. Been living in these clothes the past few months. Got the red sweater from Teym last years when they invited me over for a brunch, it’s so comfy and I just have to recommend it to you (no, not getting paid, but the sweater was a gift).

Hola Passenger! We were at Boxi super early, love that time when it’s not crowded at all and to watch everything being built.

This is how I like to share my pictures in instagram stories, a bit like small blog posts.

Back home again for more coffee. Can you see any of my hair? Johan’s hair looks so healthy now when all the bleaching is gone. So, we bleached my hair. More about that later.

For some reason, I can’t find regular green lentils in my local supermarkets, so I took a walk over to Euro Gida in Kreuzberg, a favourite store. Did the mistake to call my story posts “spam”, I don’t see them as spam – if I did, I wouldn’t post. If you know what I mean.

Schlesisches Tor subway station is so beautiful.

And these illustrations at a pastel de nata place were super inspiring.

So, hi! Welcome to this morning. Sunday, March 17. I jumped out of bed and decided to go straight out.

Went over to Ostbahnhof to check out the flea market, but was too early of course. I think 80% of the people I met were heading home after a party night or continuing in clubs. The beauty of this city.

Went home and out again. Called Johan and asked if he wanted to join me for a coffee. Yes.

Oops, the picture to the left is from yesterday. Look at his eyes, they are so bright. Scandinavian deluxe.

Went back home and here I am writing this blog post after a day of planning, eating and chilling.

I have never had blonde hair before, so the other day Johan bleached my hair and the next day same procedure. Not sure what we’re going to do next, maybe bleach more or put in some colour (grey or orange maybe). Let’s see, feels good with a change. Finally I will look like the rest of my family members, plan is to look like Elvis (the golden retriever)?

Hope you had fun joining me on these walks, made instagram a fun thing again.

      Men gull, tack! Tror jag ska sikta på att få Elvis-färg i skallen. Konkurrera om blondheten med Johan, haha!

    Enjoying every single post and picture. Love being here!
    I wear my wrist worms (mustard or green) every day and it automatically reminds me of your wondrous photography and snippets.
