Super delicious crêpes at Harvey Nichols' Nutella bar. +++ super service. 

Another nutella bar in the same building,

where you can customize your own nutella jar.


You know where this is..

Missguided's store had a vending machine selling unicorn dreams!

TGIF has always been a go-to place for the best chicken wings (dipped in Jack Daniel's sauce, YUM!) and best place for drinks!

Food Junkie


I love food. I'm a real food junkie. One of my favourite things during the weekends in London was visiting the markets, urban parts of the city and to eat, eat and eat.. And of course taking pictures of the food.  


My friend Natalie made a travel bucket list, so I decided to make one too. I want this summer to be filled with traveling & adventure so I'll try to get the destinations off the list & enjoy life to the fullest.


Venice, Italy

Bridge of Sighs, Venice, Italy {local legend says that lovers will be granted eternal love and bliss if they kiss on a gondola at sunset under the Bridge of Sighs as the bells of St Mark's Campanile toll}:


Rome, Italy

Crete, Greece

I could see myself sitting there drinking coffee...or a glass of wine.  17 Perfect Island Holidays Destinations - Paros, Greece: *GREECE ~ Milos is a volcanic Greek island in the Aegean Sea, just north of the Sea of Crete.:

Insta Lately

Poor update, I know.. Follow me on Instagram - @isabeljarnstrom for daily updates. I am too busy working on the blog now but as soon as I got some time on my hands I will give my blog a makeover and start updating regularly.


Latest on instagram:


90's style - choker & nails from Primark

These nails + adhesive cost me £1 & I didn't have high expectations on the quality. Turned out to be the opposite.

East London vibes

East London, Shoreditch is my favourite place in London. It has an urban and cool vibe to it in comparison to other places.


My new, fresh Nike Huaraches + Calvin socks.

If you ever go to London and need sneakers. Buy them! More affordable here than in other places. Huaraches from Footlocker and CK socks from Urban Outiftters.

New Sunglasses from Spitalfields Market, Shoreditch


My lovely friend Natalie paid me a visit.

We had a caramel & oreo cupcake from Hummingbird Bakery at Portobello Road. 


Pizza slices, churros and vintage stuff

Visited the famous Portobello Road Market in Notting Hill last saturday. Been to it several times before but it's a great way to spend your weekend checking out all vintage stuff, having pizza slices and delicious churros. Bought some souvenirs for friends & family and some fresh veggies & fruits. 






I barely took any pictures from the trip.. But here are a few: 


Had a white chocolate mocca & a bacon sandwich at the train station when we arrived 

View from my hotel room



Drank a lot of fruity tea on my room


Had the best sushi ever with some friends.

Weekend Trip

Hotel breakfast and lots of shopping is what this weekend's got in store for me. I booked an impulse trip to Stockholm for the weekend. Mum & Dad were already going so I decided to join them since I've had such an urge to travel lately. I reckoned I needed a vacay and I also look forward to visit some friends that moved there last year. The blog will be on hold for the weekend and I'll post a bunch of pictures of my trip on Monday!

Have a great weekend!


Stockholm, Sweden #travel:


Had so much fun in Åbo with my bf Jenna. Lots of talking and catching up, movienights, eating out and shopping! Also had time to meet up with Lotta, whom I shared an apartment together with while I studied in London.


Last night we went for dinner to

Han Ko Sushi


Hade det jättekul i Åbo med min bf Jenna. Mycket prat, filmkvällar med en massa gott, åt ute varje dag på mysiga restauranger och shoppade såklart! Hann också träffa Lotta en dag, tjejen som jag bodde tillsammans med när jag studerade i London.  

Gårdagens restaurang besök blev

Throwback to London

Throwback to my London life. Been going through all my thousands of pictures from my time there and managed to put together a collage with some lovely images. Here you go:


En tillbaka blick på mitt London liv. Har gått igenom alla mina tusentals bilder från min tid där och har satt ihop ett kollage med fina bilder. Var så goda: 

@ the airport

Been travelling all day yesterday and got home this morning. We were actually supposed to be home at night already but our fist flight was delayed so we didn't make it to our connection flight. Luckily we just had to wait 5 hours for the next one. I did not sleep on the whole night so that was the first thing I did when I got home. Just woke up, have started unpacking and gonna clean up my wardrobe. 


Har rest hela gårdagen och kom hem imorse. Det var egentligen meningen att vi skulle vara hemma redan inatt men vårt första flyg var försenat så vi hann inte med vårt nästa flyg. Tur för oss behövde vi endast vänta 5 timmar på nästa flyg. Jag sov inte på hela natten så det första jag gjorde då jag kom hem var att sova. Vaknade just, har börjat packa upp och ska städa min garderob idag.  


I had a lot of leftover pounds so I got myself some new make up from Mac, a foundation from Clinique, and a package of OPI nail laquers. Also got a gift bag from Clinique with my purschase. Better pictures and feedback on the products will come up someday. 


Jag hade kvar en del pund så köpte lite smink till mej från Mac, en foundation från Clinique och en liten förpackning med OPIs nagellack. Jag fick också en gåva från Clinique på köpet. Bättre bilder och rekommendationer av produkterna kommer upp i ett senare inlägg.



Last days in London

In less than 24 hours I will be laying in my own bed in my childhood room. I am so excited to get back home. Can't wait to see my family, the cats and the dog, all my friends and just get back to my beautiful home country. Drive my car, drink tap water and eat Finnish food. Those are the smallest things I've learned to appreciate. Can't wait to get back to work and to start eating healthily and exercise and get a real routine and get rid of all this big city stress. my mum's been here the past two days and we've strutted down oxford circus, visited covent garden, done some shopping and just hung out. These are the last pictures I've taken of my London life:


Om mindre än 24 timmar kommer jag ligga i min säng i mitt barndoms rum. Jag är så glad att snart få vara hemma igen. Kan knappt vänta att få se min familj, katterna, hunden, alla vänner och få vara tillbaks i mitt fina hemland. Att få köra min bil igen, dricka kranvatten och äta den finska maten. Det är de små sakerna som jag saknat mest och lärt mej att uppskatta. Kan knappt vänta på att få börja jobba igen och börja äta hälsosamt och träna regelbundet och få in en bra rutin och få bli av med denhär storstads stressen. Mamma har varit här de två senaste dagarna och vi har gått på Oxford Street, besökt Covent garden, shoppat att bara hängt. Dessa bilder är de sista jag tagit utav mitt London liv: 


Sunny day in London

A day in Brighton

Went to Brighton today and walked along the beach, did some shopping and had tacos and margaritas at a mexican grill


For till Brighton idag och gick längs stranden, shoppade lite och beställde tacos och margaritas vid en mexikansk grill.


Camden town

After our little trip to the zoo yesterday we went into Camden town, browsed through some stores and checked out the area. It was so nice there.  


Efter vår lilla zooresa igår for vi in till Camden town, tittade igenom affärer och kollade in området. Så fint där.


Paid a visit to the London zoo today. Saw a lot of beautiful animals and the weather was perfect. With +21 degrees it really felt like Summer. 


Besökte the London zoo idag. Så en massa fina djur och vädret var perfekt. Med +21 grader så kändes det verkligen som sommar.




my last few days in pics

My latest week and days I have had a few visitors to my place. Been doing the usual tourist stuff and showing them around and also been to all my favorite food places: ponti's italian kitchen, Tgi Friday's and ben's cookies. We also went to Sky garden today which was amazing. 


Min senaste vecka och dagar har jag haft besök hit. Har gjort de vanliga turist sakerna och visat dem runt och har också varit och käkat till mina favorit ställen: ponti's italian kitchen, Tgi friday's och Ben's cookies. Vi var också till Sky garden idag som var riktigt häftigt.  

British Museum

Yesterday and today was lovely. It's been +16 and sunshine. Been walking around in London these past few days, drinking Starbucks macchiatos, guiding my friend who is visiting me. Today we went to The British museum and the other days we've been to see Big ben, London Eye, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Circus and street, Trafalgar square, St Jame's park, Buckingham palace, hyde park and other stuff.


Igår och idag har varit underbart. +16 och soligt. Gått runt i London dehär senaste dagarna och druckit Starbucks macchiatos och guidat en vän som är på besök. Idag blev det ett besök till the british museum och de andra dagarna har vi varit och sett Big ben, London eye, Piccadilly circus, Oxford circus och gatan, Trafalgar square, St Jame's park, Buckingham palace, hyde park och annat.

Daydreaming of New York

I am seriously considering booking a 2 weeks trip to New York In September during fashion week. Contact me if anyone is interested in joining! Other than that I applied to a school today and did a lot of research into trends and the 70's for our styling presentation on Monday. 


Jag överväger seriöst att boka en 2 veckors resa till New York i september under mode veckan. Kontakta mej om nån är intresserad att hänga på. Annars idag har jag ansökt till en skola och studerat trender och 70 talet inför vår styling presentation på måndag.



Ponti's for dinner

Me and my flatmate haven't done anything together since our travelling in Europe. We are so busy with the final assignments for our classes so all our freetime goes to studying hard. But today we went out for dinner after a successful day of shooting. We went to one of our favorite restaurants, Ponti's Italian and ordered their delicious lasagna, a glass of white wine and their homemade chocolate brownie.


Jag och min lägenhetskompis har inte hittat på nåt tillsammans sedan vårt resande i europa. Vi har så fullt med alla slutuppgifter så all vår fritid går åt att studera hårt. Men idag for vi ut och äta efter en lyckad dag av fotograferande. Vi gick till en av våra favorit reastauranger, Ponti's Italian och beställde deras goda lasagne, ett glas vitt vin och deras goda hembakade brownie.


Club Escape

Going to sleep and hopefully I will be fully rested after 8 days of travelling, shopping, eating and drinking. Heheh, it's been crazy and long days. Saying good night with a pic from Friday night in Amsterdam at club Escape.  

Back in London

Took the train back to London today and saw lots of beautiful landscapes. We have had a really fun time travelling, done lots of things, experienced a lot and met some really nice people. We really loved Amsterdam and I am definitely going there again.

Today in pictures


We hired some bikes today and explored the city. It was fun cycling around this beautiful place and we also stopped to eat and shop a little bit. Just got home and we're heading out tonight again. Just need to rest a bit now hehe. Went out yesterday and they gave us a free champagne bottle to start with so that was fun.

Hard rock cafe & shopping

Had dinner at Hard rock cafe followed by shopping.
