Finally!

So finally I can share and explain the radio silence that has been here the past 2,5 weeks that I spent in the country side- I finally got my drivers license! After years of anxiety and having this weigh on my shoulders I set my mind to it. Choose to go out of stockholm and was lucky enough to convince one of my closest friends to come with (whom also happens to have a country house there) so we spent two weeks driving, studying, with out a sufficient wifi signal in the woods. I am just as happy as I look about this! Tomorrow night Ix27m going to Spain for a week of shooting editorials for spring/summer- and the best part? I can drive a rental car if I like! Tumnagel

Countryside

I am currently in the swedish countryside with my bestie Sara at her summer house. Spending lazy days taking long walks, picking mushrooms, reading, cooking, afternoon naps, cooking some more and having a sauna before bedtime. My wifi and phone reception are almost non existant so i am also having a bit of an internet detox- accept for a few instagram updates. @isabellehawi. A mini break in November. Tumnagel

delivery

I hate to admit it but I am often quite bad at eating lunch, i tend to skip it if Ix27m stuck at the office or production, and if Ix27m running around town pulling clothes Ix27ll eat an apple or nuts on the go. But i do love breakfast! My morning nespresso and hard bread or finn crisp with seasalt butter and mushed avocado on top is ritual. So I got super happy when this delivery made its way to my office the other day- a box full of Finn Crisps- Now I can have breakfast for lunch at the office and looking forward to trying the rye snacks, think theyx27d be yum with hummus or with a cheese platter.

spice

I love when the PR agencyx27s get creative with packaging. When I got back from Hong Kong this box was waiting for me at the office with the latest Jägermeister Spice flavoured with cinnamon and vanilla. I just love the illustration (of yours truely) on the coasters. Definately bring this set out next time I have my girls over. Tumnagel

detox

Today Ix27m on my third day detoxing. Ix27m skipping all dairy, carbs, sugar, caffeine and of course alcohol. Instead Ix27m eating greens, more greens, nuts and a little bit of fruit- and trying to mainly stick to raw- but tonight I think i may have some quinoa. Ix27ve been Drinking plenty of water and herbal teas from Pukka. Itx27s crazy what a headache and how tired you feel when you donx27t get your daily dose of coffee, sunday (my first day detoxing) was a real pain. If you have any good recipes or detox/raw food blogs/sites to recommend- please send them over! <3 Morning smooth made of one banan, a handful of spinach, 1 kiwi and a squeeze of lemon and 1/3 cup of water.

home delivery

Ok, so this has to be one of the best ideas since well, since home delivery. Ix27m a sucker for a good breakfast, baguettes, different cheeses, yoghurt, granola, eggs benedict, the whole deal- I usually have to try everything at the hotel breakfast buffé. Unfortunately Ix27m usually too stressed in the mornings to prepare ALL of that at home but my morning latte and avocado or turkey sandwiches are my usual standard. So this morning when this little bag of goodness hung on my door I jumped for joy. 6 different types of fresh bread from ciabatta to pumpkin seed rolls. By the Bakery is the ultimate weekend treat when you have plenty of time to laze around in your robe, reading the paper and slowly sipping your cappuchino. I had a breakfast meeting this morning so we didnx27t have time to finish up all the bread which means that tonight for dinner wex27re having breakfast again- perfect wednesday night soul food! The even better deal? Now you can win a months bread delivery subscription to your door, click through here. Tumnagel

tee

Ix27m back in (a freezing!) Stockholm. The jetlag has really got me bad this time- and from the minute I landed itx27s been time to get straight back into work mode with two new TV Productions, but Ix27m not complaining. I will however complain over the fact that my computer just semi-crashed, and the text Ix27ve spent the majority of this day writing for the new magazine Shape Up disappeared right into thin air without saving. The headache! Found this tee in a little street stall in Bangkok- and couldnx27t resist getting it. Quite dumb however to walk into the Chanel store at Suvarhnabhumi Airport wearing it- the looks the staff gave me. Haha! Tumnagel

Happy Sunday!

Dips in the Pool, swims in the ocean, fresh coconuts, afternoon naps in the hammock, the smell of sunscreen and papaya salads with chicken. That pretty much sums up my sunday plans. Tumnagel

hook up

Ix27ve gotten two new hook ups over here. The first is Chuka Wakame or seaweed salad. Nom Nom Nom, I could eat a kilo a day. The second is Bikram Yoga- I try to go to a 2hr class every other day. Today I started the day at 7:30 with a walk to the yoga studio accompanied by a 2hr class. Ix27m really noticing better strengh in my lower back which has been troubling me for quite awhile due to the amount of heavy carrying/lifting I do work wise as well as walking around on hard concrete floors for up to 18 hour days during TV Productions. Any tips on good Bikram Yoga studios in Stockholm? Tumnagel

year in review

2013, really went past in a flash. I rang in the new year in Thailand, spent januari travelling in Myanmar, Hong Kong and Istanbul. Got back to Stockholm, started working on a new TV production that took up most of my February and March along with styling at Nathalie Schuterman- went to a chilly Berlin in March together with Olympus- where I met this gorgeous doll and got a little crash course on their new camera and photo workshop. In April I went to Barcelona, kept working on my styling projects and started planning my summer which would end up consisting of only work and no vacation. I worked on the new TV Production x27Att Varax27 which was heaps of fun but took up extreme amounts of time- leaving little time to enjoy the amazing summer Sweden had. I went to Finland for a weekend to visit my dudes relatives which was a more than welcome weekend off. Went to copenhagen in August for the first time in decades and absolutely loved it- have vowed to come back soon again. In August my crazy autumn work schedule kicked off- 7 days a week work 16 hour saturdays and of course so much fun! This autumn was when I realized how much I love working with lots going on at the same time, challening myself to the brim to prove that it is possible to have 3 TV projects going on at the same time, an in store styling job, photoshoots, as well as a (somewhat) social life and hubby at home. August through to November was mostly filled with work for me, different TV Products like Clash of the Choirs (Körslaget), Children of the World Charity (Världens Barn), Så Ska Det Låta took up almost all of my time. In November I went to Prague with my favorite extra family for a weekend of great food, culture and quality time. And december finally rolled around- the month i look forward most to each year as it means I get to go back home to my beloved home, family and friends in Thailand. To sum up 2013 Ix27ve had the privledge to travel alot, once again work with what I love, and be lucky enough to have my family and friends around me and a man that loves me and whom I have so much fun with. 2013 has really been a good year- I feel as if I have moved forward from 2012, which wasnx27t the easiest year for me. How was your 2013? Tumnagel

bon appetit!

Last night my girlfriend and I couldnx27t really decided what to eat so we decided to cook eveything we like, you know- when in doubt. Ended up making 3 starters and a main course. We had dates wrapped in bacon (the perfect mix of sweet and salty), then we cooked artichoke hearts with a herb & lime butter, and for our final starter I made the Thai Moules from the other night again- since it was such perfection last time. And then we felt like a hearty stew for main- so we cooked boeuf bourguignon for 4 hours- the meat was super tender. To drink we had a glass of the new Soprasasso Appassimento wine, a sort of Amarone which was very light but full of flavour and a little sweet - absolutely delish with a stew! Nom Nom Nom! Perfect end to the week. Now I just got back from a christmas concert with my dudex27s family and now itx27s time to start packing- next week I leave for a longer trip abroad. Tumnagel

thai moules

I hardly post recipes here, but I love to cook and have people over for dinner. Last night I made these Thai style baked mussels (those of you following me on instagram will have seen a sneak! @isabellehawi) and they were so so good I thought I had to share the recipe! Youx27ll need: 1kg Blue Mussels Ginger 4-6 Thai Chilis 5 Garlic cloves Coriander Thai Basil 1 Lime Sesame oil Fish Sauce Butter Water Rice Wine Clean the mussles, discarding any broken ones.. Fry chopped garlic, ginger and chili in sesame oil in a Wok pan. Add rice wine, the mussels and cover with water. Bring to a boil- and wait for the mussels to open and cook- takes about 5-7 minutes- make sure to cover with a lid so they steam and get the flavour of the ginger, garlic and chili. Ones cooked wait for them to cool down. Meanwhile make prik nam pla (a thai chili/fish sauce). Add fish sauce, 3 chopped garlic cloves (i slice mine), 3 thai chilis and 2-3 slices of a lime in a small bowl. Now discard any mussels that havenx27t opened up or are cracked or broken. Take off one of the shells on the mussels and place the other half on a oven tray. Pour the Prik Nam Pla on the mussels, add a little bit of butter to each mussel and shell and cover with chopped coriander and thai basil. Put in the oven on 200° for 4 minutes or until the butter has melted and the mussels have gotten a little color and crispiness. Ready to eat! I served these with a cucumber/sesame/guilan chili vinegrette. Nom nom nom! Tumnagel

day three

Flu season has arrived. Yesterday I couldnx27t get up from bed due to the muscle and body aches. Today is a little better. My savior is copious amounts of Tea from Mighty Leaf (my fav!), my best magazines- the home classified section & TIME (the only subscription I carry), and nonsense TV such as Vanderpump Rules (omg!) Any movie suggestions? Tumnagel

wedding

Donx27t be fooled by the headline- Ix27m not getting married, but I just came home from a fantastic wedding party. The bride being from Eritrea, it was dancing and music non stop. I wore a new x27marblex27 dress from H&M Trend, which I will have to show better pics of. Here with my very stylish and good looking man. Now bed- early call time tomorrow - taping episode 7 & 8. Nighty nighty! Tumnagel

the other day

Wearing Zara skirt, Caroline Blomst cashmere knit. Céline trapeze, Urban Outfitters heels. My life is upside down right now! I canx27t stand being in my apartement- there is construction dust everywhere- no matter how much i vaccum, or mop the floors- the workers get here at 7:30am and stay till 18. I have three tv productions right now, a charity gala, five upcoming photoshoots within the next few weeks- 2 shoots next week, and inbetween that I have two days a week commited to publishing/shooting/styling the fall trends/news. And alongside that I have my hubby, friends and fantastic parents in town (whom are only home for another few days before flying back home to Bangkok.) Ix27m back at that stage where I wish the day had 48 hours. Last week I worked 94 hours. I havent had a day off since august the 18th. But damn I love my job. I just wish this kitchen would be done, so I could at least come home at 8pm, and sit down on my couch (not the box containing my new cabinets), warm a cup of tea (not drink water from the bathroom tap) and open my freezer and grab a tub of ice cream- not dig in a box to find old crackers (without cheese) for dinner. How are you guys? Tumnagel

#monday

Herex27s some monday inspiration. Ix27m exhausted this morning after a 14 hour fun photoshoot yesterday with this talented beauty. This week is again crazy hectic- so first thing on my schedule this evening is a workout and a run to try to get my brain and body in shape for the million things I have going on. Considering doing a detox this week with just raw food, do you have any good recepies or blogs regarding the subject? Tumnagel

around the corner

Ix27ve had the perfect weekend thus far. Today I took the first trip out in our boat to our country home in the Archipelago, always something magical about that, seeing the house after the harsh winter, embracing spring. Fixed with the garden, the ponds & waterfall and burned a bonfire with all the old autumn leaves and branches that the winter winds and storms have broken. Summer please come quick now- this spring has really been delayed. Now a well deserved bath! Tumnagel

comerc 24

We had an incredible dinner the last night in Barcelona at Michelin starred restaurant Comerc24. I donx27t usually write about food but to be honest its one of the top things Ix27m passionate about next to travelling and art/style. I think I may have to claim it to be one of the top three restaurants Ix27ve eaten at. Letx27s have a look at the 20 course tasting menu. (It was actually 21 course- I missed photographing a soup) Tumnagel

weekend

The best part of the weekend is the moment right above. Breakfast with all the essentials, omelette, fresh fruit, coffee and freshly squeezed OJ and ofcourse my absolute favorite favorite favorite thing- the classified section! This weekend we (me and the hubby) have looked at some of the most amazing villax27s, restorations objects and even some castles. Yes a girl can dream right? But I feel the interior obsession within me is blooming. Spring is here, a garden, apple trees, your own dock and a little boat to tie up next to it. Tumnagel

spring

I woke up at 3am, fully rested and ready for a new week. Resulted in a morning job at 5:30, going through my inbox by 5am, and a long breakfast infront of the news. Unfortunately the sun has been unwilling to shine so for this morning, but I do still feel today may be the day to premier my leo loafers for the season. The above from Celine arenx27t bad either.

And Ive gotten spoiled rotten with fantastic presents! Easter theme! Last nights merangue/berry dessert- quite proud of that one! Freixenet bubbly! Lobster baby!
