Wonderful Midsummer Weekend With Sofia!

I had the best long weekend ever! My dear dear friend Sofia came and visited me last Thursday and stayed over the weekend. We had so much fun, we went shopping for nine(!) hours on Friday, I bought lots of cute summer clothes. Then on Saturday we celebrated Swedish Midsommar in Hyde Park with lots of other Swedes, I think it was at least 500 people! We made flower "crowns" which is tradition in Sweden on Midsummer's Eve, and we had a lovely picnic.

Then in the evening we glammed ourselves up and went to a nightclub where we partied on the VIP balcony with around 20 Norwegians, fun!

On Sunday we cured our hang-overs with Pimms in the sun, lovely! Thanks Mamasota for the best weekend ever! Love you!

On Midsummer morning we went to pick the flowers for our crowns...
And we managed to create this! I was well pleased with our cute midsummer crowns! Btw, this dress is from Oasis, really pleased with that purchase!

Svenska pinglor!

On the tube, people probably thought we were hippies or something...
Hyde Park. There was a nice but very tiny "Midsommarstång."

The nose-mugs again! :)
I made savoury muffins with chevre and sun-dried tomatoes in special Swedish muffin forms!
Such a lovely photo of Sofia and James!

Sofia with a new nose + moustache!

All glammed up for the evening!
In Angel the next day, sipping Pimms at The York.
So refreshing!
