Midsommar @ IKEA

Last saturday I was dancing all day long in the IKEA in Groningen (Holland). Why? Because it was Midsommar, the longest day of the year. In Sweden it is an tradition to dance around the May-tree and wear a birch wreath with a lot of flowers in it. My dance school was invited to dance Swedish dances in the IKEA. We also were wearing original costumes from Sweden and we were singing Swedish childrensongs.

Me, in my Swedish costume.

A sweet little boy asked me to dance!

Dear Readers

First of all, I want you to know that I am so sorry for the lack of updates recently. Everything was so busy and I just had too less time to do everything I'd planned.

But for now, I've got a question for you all. 
What would you like to see on this blog? 
Tell me everything you like, and I hope that might help me. Because if I write about thing you like, it is more fun for you to read it! 
Hope to hear from you soon!

Love, Swaen

My tea-boughts

I bought some tea in little bags. I bought Summer Carnaival, Love Mix and Love Herbal. The Love Herbal I gave to a friend of mine, who just moved in at her boyfriends house.

Love Mix is ​​a black tea blend with safflower flowers blossoms, cornflower blossoms and sunflowerblossoms. Sweet tea with soft strawberry flavor. 

Summer Carnival was inspired by the midsummer. With the taste of ripe summer fruitsand fresh herbs. A colorful mix of cherry, apple, orange, hibiscus, black currant,pineapple, strawberry, raspberry, papaya, lime blossom, sunflower blossoms, rose petals and camomile.

I like the Summer Carnival the most, the taste is so fresh! I'd wish I had bought more tea at the Teabar. I really like it. Lucky for me there is a webshop, so when I am in Sweden, I think I will order some!

I drank some delicious tea at the Teabar in Amsterdam. And made some pictures :)

Last Saturday I went with a friend to Amsterdam. I really liked it, and we were so lucky with the weather. In the train it was raining, and when we got in Amsterdam the sun was shining. We hadn't had a plan, so we were just walking and asking each other on every corner: 'Shall we go right or left.' And when you do that you will find the most beautiful shops. Like this patisserie. I don't know the name, but the window looked so nice. Here are the pictures, and it is ALL made of chocolate and marzipan!

Shoot! (part 2)

Here you see an other serie of the photoshoot I did the other day. Let me know what you think about it :)

Here I am again! My weekend was very busy, I had a photoshoot at a friends house. She had to put some clothes on a picture, and I had to be model. That was very funny! 
I also cycled 240 km on one day! It was called the Elfstedentocht and the tour goes along the 11 towns of the province Friesland (The Netherlands). It was so nice to cycle, and I am very proud of mysels and of my boyfriend. We did it together!
About one hour I get the results of my final exams... I really hope that I will pass them! And then: PARTYY!!

Here one picture of the shoot, more to come!

In two months I will live in Sweden! Wauw, I can't wait! It is getting so real, I am leaving everything behind (even my boyfriend) and will study for one year in Lindesberg (town). I will live in a hostfamily, I think that it is going to be so cool. I will have to get used to it, but after then!
I made an travellers blog: The blog is in Dutch, but Google translate will be your best friend!

Alice + Olivia

Accidentally I came on the website of Alice + Olivia, and I don't mind at all! It is launched in 2002 and the goal was to make clothes that would fit to the personality of its founder: Stacy Bendet.
This picture on the website made my day, so happy!

Here are some clothes I would like to wear, unfortunately it is not in my ability to buy clothes of this beautyful brand, but one day...

Just some pictures of today: I was reading a book in the garden. The grass is so high there, it is almost up to my hips! I was a kind of invisible there, and that made it a perfect place to relax and enjoy the sun!
