Penhaligon's Scent Library set

When I was to Budapest I bought a Penhaligon’s Scent Library set. I haven’t tried anything by this perfume house before and felt like this would be a great introduction to their ten most popular scents.
This way I can try them all out in peace at home, pick one or two favorites and order them online! No annoying (and useless) paper blotters, no recurring visits to a retailer store in order to test the same fragrance over and over again before making up my mind, no fuss.

Recipe: Oven-baked apples with cinnamon and ice-cream

Here’s my easiest recipe recipe with seasonal apples.

Wash the apples and put them in an ovenproof dish.
Put a little water in the dish, too.
Season the apples with sugar and cinnamon.
Set the oven to 180°C and bake the apples for 30 minutes.

Serve warm with vanilla ice-cream!

Season with sugar and cinnamon on top

Straight from the oven!

Warm baked apples are great with ice-cream. However, they're still delicious when they cool down.

The Italian job

I’m on my second week of studying Italian and I must say things are going forward extremely fast! This is the first time I’m taking a language course on university level, and let me tell you that it is nothing like the language studies I took in high school. I thought that this would be a breeze compared to my engineering studies, but the teachers expect us to learn so much every week that I need to work really hard to keep up. At this rate, I’ll be able to converse in Italian by Christmas.

Apple season in Sweden

Right now it’s apple time in Sweden! My favorite season ever. Today we’ve been picking apples while walking Greger, and now I have a lot of apples at home. Later today I’ll show you how I like to use them!

Greyhound and squirrel

Today Greger saw a squirrel in the park, and all of a sudden thought he could catch it!..

Green fall jacket

A couple of days ago I received some really really great news (will tell you what it is later), and one of the things I did to celebrate it was buying a new jacket. Here it is!
This is one of the nicest fall jackets ever, and not just because of the color. It’s so light I can barely feel it when I wear it! And at the same time it’s quite warm and windproof.
I was torn between a hot pink and a grass green jacket in the same model, but in the end I decided that the green one is nicer.

A Saturday in September

Today has been a nice and sunny Saturday. I went downtown to buy a birthday present for an old friend, who turns 33 today (but the birthday dinner is tomorrow). After some browsing around I bought a white cabel-stitch sweater (I almost bought one for myself as well, but they didn’t have it in small in store). I also wanted to buy something for her six-year-old son and ended up buying a slimy frog toy, which can be thrown around to great amusement.
At home I watched Northanger Abbey, a movie based on one of Jane Austen’s novels, which I read a couple of months ago.
