Better For The Environment

Image
Hello! I thought that I would give you one super easy tip for being more environmental. So when I bake I always use a reusable silicone baking sheet instead of one made out of paper that I can only use once. I got one from my mom for my birthday last year and it's the best thing ever just because it's reusable. Not only is it better for the environment but it's better for your wallet. Think about it! Instead of paying a little bit of money a lot of times you pay a little more money once. These baking sheets can be kind of expensive but I bought one today at Cervera for only 149kr.

Fall Must Have

Image
I am literally craving this coat from Lindex so bad right now! I was going to make this post about my fall must haves. I was going to choose about five pieces that I really love and are craving so hard right now. Then I realized that the only thing that I am craving this fall is this coat from Lindex.

If you like the coat yourself you can buy it here!

I am probably going to buy it. The only reason that I haven't bought it is because it costs over 1000kr. It's not that I can afford it, it's just that it's a lot of money and I really don't have an income right now. LOL that didn't stop me from buying those DIESEL jeans for 1500kr. In my defence I had a 15% discount on those jeans and also I have a discount at Lindex. I mean how can your turn down something when you have a discount?!

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Buns

Image
Hello! I was going to post this last night but I was too tired. I barely know how I managed to bake these buns but I did. Okay, so a few weeks ago I saw this picture on instagram of these delicious looking vegan pumpkin spice cinnamon buns. Immediately I just knew that I had to make them. Last night I finally decided to fight my fatigue and bake them. I even made my own pumpkin spice pumpkin puré (because you know I make everything from scratch). It was very easy. 
As you can see I made twice as many buns as the recipe says, but you should still bake them for 25-30 minutes.
I skipped the glazing on my buns. 
I have missed baking so much! When I was younger, before I started high school and even in high school I used to bake all of the time. Cookies, cakes and I even made my own ice cream. It was so much fun. Now I don't do that as much or I mean even at all. It's just that I don't really have the same craving for sweet stuff as I did back then.

#SVAMPLYCKA

Since I have been a little absent the last few days I am going to try to make up for it today by giving you guys few extra posts.


I love going for walks in the forest. It's so cozy and nice to get out and see something else. Just because it's fall now I make sure that I bring a bag with me so that I can pick some mushrooms. So the other day when I was in the forest didn't think that I was going to find any mushrooms because I saw a few other people with baskets full of mushrooms. I prayed that they had not found my spots. Maybe they found a few of my spots but that didn't really matter because I found so much mushroom in other places. 679g of mushrooms! I am so happy. Tonight I am thinking about making a pasta with a creamy sauce and mushrooms. Yum yum!

Hedgehog mushrooms
Chanterelles

679g!

Yesterday From InstaStories

Image
Sorry that I have been silent. I don't know why but I have been super tired the past few days. So when  I have come all I have energy for is things that absolutely need to be done. I guess that's just life. Anyways, my friend Patricia and I went to Rosendals trädgård yesterday and afterwards we went on a walk around Djurgården. It is so beautiful out there. If you are ever in Stockholm you have to go to Djurgården and just look at the beautiful nature!

Be sure to follow me on instagram to see more pictures like this @eriikaworld :)

The sun was shining so beautifully yesterday afternoon :)

Coconut Rice Pudding

Image
Yesterday I tried out a new thing in the kitchen. I made rice pudding with coconut milk instead of regular milk. I just had this idea in my head that it would be really tasty. I was right! It was so good. I love cooking. I love coming up with new ideas and trying them out. Sometimes it works out really well and sometimes it doesn't. The the beauty of it and how you learn.

If you want to make coconut rice pudding yourself, all you have to do is switch the regular milk for coconut milk. It's as simple as that! But in case you don't know how to make rice pudding I am going to share my recipe with you. My aka the recipe on the packing of Eldorado's pudding rice. (So it's really Eldorado's recipe and not mine, anyway I am sharing it with you but all credits go to Eldorado for the recipe. Except for the coconut milk, that is all my idea.)

New Recipe

Image
Today I am trying out this new recipe. Or it's really not a recipe it's just an idea that I had. I am making coconut rise pudding. Doesn't it sound delicious?! I made this coconut rice for dinner the other day and that just got me thinking that wouldn't it be delicious if I made some coconut rice pudding. The end result of the coconut rice was almost like a rise pudding which is where I got the idea from.


It's on the stove cooking right now. I will tell you how it turned out when it's finished. Talk to you later!

Lets Talk About Carpets

Image
Yo, so lets talk carpets. That was the only thing that I didn't mention yesterday. I want to replace all of the carpets in my apartment, not just the one in my little bed corner. What I have learned the past few days is that furniture and pretty much everything when it comes to interior design is expensive. It's ridiculous how much things cost. For example I saw a carpet with the words "I eat cake in bed" on it for 25 000 kr. That is insane. Yezus! Not that the ones that I like are exactly cheap but still, c'mon this is crazy! But I guess if you want something good then you are going to have to pay for it.

In my kitchen/ hallway I have four carpets if you count the door matt. I am thinking that maybe I should just have one huge carpet in the kitchen area and in the hallway area I should just have a door matt and a smaller rug.

In the hallway outside the bathroom I am thinking about getting a carpet in a similar size that I have now…

My Bed Corner

Image
So I have been going through pinterest trying to find something that looks like what I want my little bed corner to look like. It is harder than I imagined to find something that I envisioned in my head. Instead I am just going to tell you guys what I want.

I am thinking about whether or not I should get a headboard. I love headboards and I think that they can be really beautiful. I am not sure if I should get one though. My concern is that it might be too much for my little apartment. Anyway, Mille Notti have to headboards that I like. They're called Paula and Alexandra but then I also found a couple that I like on Mio. If I did get a headboard I would probably get one in either dusty pink, beige or blue. In my current apartment I think that either dusty pink or beige will fit the best.

My Next Project

Image
Hello my darlings! Hey, you know what I feel like the next project that I am going to do in my apartment is the corner where my bed is. Yes corner because I have studio apartment. It doesn't really say anything. I mean it doesn't say that I have any sense of style or taste.


This is what that little corners looks like. I like how everything is positioned so I am going to keep it that way. I like having that little bench at the end of the bed so that is also staying. The only piece of furniture that I might replace is my bedside table. Then I know that I need a new bedcover, new pillows and all of the photos above my bed should have a frame from the same series. I just want things to be a little bit more coherent.




I will try and put together a inspiration of what I want that corner to look like. I'll try and post it later today, and if not I'll post it tomorrow.

Have a great day!
