Despite being casually chic when it comes to fashion, Stockholmers hide beneath black jackets all winter long with the occasional and very rare colored jacket in between the sea of black. So I dug through my winter photography archives for a few exhibits above.

I’m heading back to Stockholm in a few days but from all accounts I’ve seen and read, snow has finally arrived and is clearly here to stay till March at least.

Monica gives me a warm smile before handing me a box of kryptonite.

While the constant photos of fika I share may suggest otherwise, I actually don’t have much of a sweet tooth…until I hit one of my favorite little spots in town – Cupcake STHLM.

Though it’s definitely much cheaper for me to bake my own darn cupcakes, I love indulging in their bite-sized red velvet and berry-loaded cupcakes once in awhile.

I love meeting fellow bloggers when they come into town, and next up was Italian blogger Camilla (aka @Drinkpop) who frequently shuttles between Stockholm and the island of Capri.
