Hej! Are you tired of drinking tap water on hot days and want something way more refreshing and exciting but without alcohol? My family and I love making Virgin Hugos (non alcoholic) on such occasions…. Here’s the simple recipe: Recipe for Virgin Hugo: In each …
The winters in Scandinavia are long and dark, so the people there are naturally experts in creating cozy settings inside their homes with candles, mulled wine (Glögg) and other delicacies…
It is tradition to invite friends over for a cup of Glögg and some pepparkakor (Ginger Thin cookies). This is called “Glöggmingel”.
Do you want to try to make your own Glögg? It is easy! Here is a basic recipe (but I encourage you to experiment to find your own personal favourite):
1 bottle of red wine (low quality is fine)
1-2 sticks of cinnamon
around 15 cloves
some orange peel
5 cardamom pods
1 dl sugar (or more or less depending on your taste)
1 dl vodka (amount also up to you;-)
Heat all the ingredients but do not boil. Serve with flaked almond and raisins.
P:S: If you don’t like vodka you can use rum or cognac instead.

On June 6th 2018, I organized a private tour of the Art exhibition “Fashion Drive” at Kunsthaus Zürich for my Instagram followers and friends.
It turned out to be a very interesting evening with much laughter and it was so wonderful to meet some more of my IG friends LIVE 🙂
Anna Buehler, who was our tour guide for the evening, informed us all about how fashion has evolved over the centuries and showed us examples of how this has been portrayed in art.
Jeanette, Nadia and Mira listening to Anna…

This one, called “Metamorfosi” by Michelangelo Pistoletto, was of a more critical nature… We were reminded of Vivienne Westwood’s motto: “Buy less, choose well and make it last!”
