Another lovely walk around the beautiful forests around Sweden ! I happened to find a little forest snake.  It is a black snake with 2 yellow spots on its head- apparently if the spots are not there it could be poisonous but luckily this little fellow had 2 little yellow spots on the head! It was even kind enough to take a picture with me!

Doggie Day Care

I am looking after a sweet maltese poodle named Balou for a couple of days ! Even though he is a tiny Mister he has quite the character !  He barks like a maniac if there are girl dogs on heat or if he doesn’t get what he wants! He likes to hump boy dogs only – girls seem to annoy him.. He is super sweet and needy ! It’s so interesting to see the different characters of dogs . Take my Xanthi for example she is quite the independent bitch .She loves chasing ducks, swimming in icy cold lakes and runs 150 kilomteres per hour ! I love dogs sooo much they are super fun to be around !

Happy days in the parks of Stockholm

20140304_121820

 

Today I had the best day ever as the sun finally came to say hi to Stockholm ! I met up with my friend in the park. She looks after dogs part-time.  She usually has up to 4 at a time! They are so well behaved . We spent almost the WHOLE day in Haga Park- which is a gorgeous park close to where I live with beautiful nature all around and a stunning dam. During summer there is even a little beach and you can go swimming !

Hot coffee on a sunny day surrounded by friends and furry friends and love ones- oh ,my fave !!!

Walking on Water WOW!

Walking on frozen waves… in other words..-Water! 

A couple of days when I was in the South of  Sweden -Skanor med Falsterbo -(most south part of the kingdom of Sweden 😉 I saw frozen waves ! The waves must have frozen as they were about to crash !

It was so amazing ! My dog Xanthi chased some birds about a kilomter away into the deep blue frozen sea! This is the same sea on which we found the baby seal.

The sea was frozen with small waves right at the beach and you could walk for kilomters ahead into the sea! I really did feel like Jesus -walking on water ! Now I am just figuring out how I can turn this water that I walked on into wine….!

Avicii ! Bitchi ! Too True Tour!

True Tour -2014 Tele 2 Arena

Last night I was at an Avicii concert for the first time ever ! It was held in the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm . The venue holds 35 000 people and it was completely sold-out !!! I had perhaps one too many  swedish ciders and about 1 hour before Avicii appeared my boyfriend and I got lost in the Arena! Ha! An hour later by miracle we found each other just in time for A VI CII!!!! WOOOHOO!!!!!

It was spectacular, he started around 8 until 11 . I had so much fun time flew right past me ! Avicii was wearing his cap backwards and waving his hand , the energy that he was emanating was incredible ! You could feel his aura from a mile away! We were at the standing dance floor and I was jumping and shouting non-stop. I can now  feel all my muscles in my legs! I have also lost my voice singing/shouting to  ‘Wake me Up” and his every other hit! I was so thirsty and the coolest thing was that the security boys had water bottles and were squirting water in everyones mouths during the concert!! Ha! I totally loved that.   I also found a glow-in-the-dark barcelet that says ”I love house”

I just woke up and still can’t stop listening to my Avicii playlist!! Will put up the video in a bit ! xX

Happy Spring Day!

Yay ! Today is the 1st of March- which means spring is just around the corner! Small flowers are slowly popping out the ground and the air is filled with a warmish breeze ! Happy 1st of March to all! Avicii tonight !!!

Life is beautiful , so let’s stop and smell the tulips…!

Scandinavian Tulip!

 

Avicii! Bitchiii!

Heyyy Brother! dsc_0758

Woohoo! My boyfriend surprised me with 2 tickets to Avicii this morning! He was making excuses about not being able to get them as they were all sold-out.. So I gave him the motivational speech about the 2 types of people in this world -the ones who go out and get what they want or people that just make excuses and have reasons why they can’t! I do admire the first kind! So my boyfriend surprised me! He managed to find them this morning. We are going tomorrow!!!

So it just shows when you really want something you will find a way !

He loves Avicii more than I do- as he is really into house music . He’s the best!  So Avicii –watch out ! Here we come!        I am so excited- I just can’t hide it!

Wolf of Wall Street

The Wolf of Wall Street! 

I just watched the’ Wolf of Wall Street’ with Leonardo Di Caprio.  It is based on a true-story about a guy called Jordan Belfort who became one of the wealthiest, most successful brokers ever starting from scratch.

He ended up losing everything but is now a motivational speaker on the ‘ straight line persuasion’ technique for sales! The movie is 3 hours long and an absolute thrill! From sinking a yacht, crashing a helicopter and sniffing cocaine from a hookers bottom! It definitely keeps you on your toes ! It’s not the fact he scammed so many people out of their money -he even said that greed had got the better of him but what inspires me most about him is he came out of it all a better man -helping others! He is brilliant-minded with an out-of-this-world intelligence. He is my idol – what a life!

My Recipe of the Day !

Close to 2 years I have been a Pescaterian which means I only eat Fish and seafood. I do not eat animals nor birds. They are friends..(then again so are fishies;)  So during these 2 years I have discovered really delicious grains ,seeds and cereals. One of my favourite foods ever is quinoa . It is so easy and quick to make I could have it for breakfast ,lunch and dinner!

This is one of my favourite salads of all time! So simple , Soooo delicious !

Tri-colour quinoa salad with sunflower seeds

  • A cup of cooked quinoa seeds/grains

  • Sunflower seeds(I prefer them raw)

  • Green salad

  • Cherry tomatoes

  • Grated feta cheese

  • Sliced cucumber

  • Olive oil

  • Black pepper

  • Balsamic vinegar

 

Cook the quinoa for around 20 minutes( sometimes more if you feel you need to )

Grate the feta cheese in it and mix it in the hot quinoa- this will make it melt…

Mmm Sprinkle the black pepper and olive oil on top. Keep on mixing ,Baby…

Let it cool down.  Cut all your veggies and then add the sunflower seeds and quinoa- add some more olive oil and then the balsamic vinegar…
