Linn, how did you first start liking oysters? I remember you previously saying that you didn’t think it was great even though you wanted to like it. Was it just from eating it a lot of times or what? Hehe, I also want to enjoy it because it looks so nice
First of all, great memory! I don’t really know?? So strange. I didn’t hate it when I first tried it, I just thought it was…. ODD? But then the second time I thought that hmmm this is actually pretty tasty and then the time after that I loved it. But I also think it has to do with everything around it! How it feels like a glamorous ritual, how it’s laid out so pretty and everybody treats it like wow you are really treating yourself. I guess I just love anything that makes me feel like I’m a lot richer and cooler than I am.
Hi Linn! I remember reading a post a really long time ago about your Christmas gift for your boyfriend! Could you link back to it again? I’m looking to do something similar!!
I’m assuming you mean the Illustrator turorial where I made a movie poster from the film La Haine. Here it is: GIFT SUGGESTION // PERSONALISED MOVIE POSTER
Hi Linn! I was wondering if you could write a post about women in Sweden. I mean, I feel like in Scandinavia in general women are so independant, free and badass! Would love to read your opinion on that
Hi! Oh that’s so difficult! Swedish women rock, and I feel blessed to be surrounded by so many. I don’t think that Swedish women are more inspiring than any others though. To be honest I think that one might be exposed to a lot of ”inspiring women” from Scandinavia just because it’s a wealthy, connected and very politically aware region. Although it is still a patriarchy it is a lot less than in other parts of the world. Women are able to strive for what they want and make their voices heard because of the welfare system and how developed the country is. To be honest I think that women who live under worse conditions and still fight for their dreams are even more inspiring. Hope that answers your question!
hi linn !!! can not you write a post about how it is to have a boyfriend who does not speak Swedish? As in how it works in everyday life, how it works with you communicating, his view on Sweden (both before he met you and after), yeah whatever !!! think it ‘s so cozy topic haha HUGS, you are awesome
Hello you wonderful person. Haha sure I can! I just have to get Daniel to not feel uncomfortable sharing his things on here. Perhaps I’ll do a video interview with him? Sometime this summer!
those pictures are breathtaking! could you please tell me what lens and body do you use? greetings! x
Thanks love, I’m using a Canon 5d Mark II with a 50mm 1.8 lens <3
Please sweet sweet Linn, could you (with the help of Daniel) make a post with Toronto-tips? I’m studying at uni there in the autumn and would really appreciate tips on where to eat / drink cheap beer / have decent coffee / dance all night / shop etc. I’m stalking through the blog after London tips when I came there for some years ago and fell in love with nature throughout east London thanks to you (like any other hipster svenne bananas). So I trust your taste! Plus we are a bit on the same level, I have like no great salary but live on student loan but still want to spend money on fun things : )) Plus Daniel’s welcome to tell if he has something not to be missed in Canada, I will try to travel around a bit when I can. Is now completely contained at attracting northern Canada and watch polar bears haha. Please please!
So happy for you! I think you will love Toronto, I do! I will try and compile a post with some tips, but for now you can check out my category Travels or the specific Toronto tag I have for all post including restaurants, cafes or bars in. You can find similar ones under all posts.

Hello! And thanks for a great blog. I have followed you for a year now (even when you blogged at radar) and find your blog so cozy. But now to my ultimate question; I was at Magaluf for one week and met the best guy. For real; the world’s best, both outside and inside. He feels the same for me and we both cried rivers when we had to say goodbye after a week together – believe it or not, but we are both head over heals in love with each other (which can be difficult for many to believe, because we’ve only known each other for a week). But we shared our innermost secrets and thoughts, discussing politics and values about life, talking about feelings and thoughts and future and everything just clicked on such a level that we absolutely cannot say goodbye, we want to stay together. And we want to fight for it. The only bad thing is that I live in northern Norrland and he in western Värmland.
And I thought; you have a distance relationship with your guy. How does it work? How do you cope with it through long periods without seeing each other? And what do you usually get up to when you see each other? Could really use some cheerful story of a distance relationship that works, now when I might start something with someone who lives several miles from me. How does one keep love alive?
First of all a big congratulations! It’s absolutely wonderful that you found each other and it deserves celebrating. I think I will try to write up a post on long distance relationship because I get so many questions about it. But the bottom line is: it’s possible and worth it if you really want to work for it. But comment all of your questions regarding long distance below and I’ll make something out of it!
If you have any other questions regarding whatever just post them below, and I’ll try my best to answer them!
