More from 1Hotel South Beach


Hello my friends! This lobby at 1hotel, come on!! The mix of concrete, all the white and the wood… love everything about it. And the cool wall in the background is made of moss!


Cosy cosy! The table, yes please.


A big extra plus for this hotel – its eco friendly.  Like all materials, food is organic and locally grown, triple filtered water everywhere etc. More of that to the world!!


Cool elevator entrance. Not cool at all if you ask Oliver. When we were here with the family, we all walked out on our floor, except for him. Oh he panicked when the door closed, poor little thing. I went all the way down to make sure he couldn’t leave the building, had a worker get his elevator down and the door opened up and he was NOT there… oh mini heart attack… Johan found him after 7 minutes on another floor, probably felt like a lifetime for him. I have never seen him so sad, he cried all day on and off and said -door closed I missed you ♥

Today -office day! My worst… but need to get organized with papers and everything else before we go home to Sweden. I needed a break from that, you know this blog is like therapy for me :) I was just on the phone with our bank for an hour, had an issue and they kept saying it shouldn’t be like this and me I KNOW just fix it!! Things like that drives me nuts!!

Time to finish up before I need to pick up Eddie-Bo. Doctor appointments (just 4 and 6 year old check ups) and a play date are on our afternoon schedule!


What a weekend!


After two evenings with amazing fancy restaurants… Friday night at Milos -with mediterranean seafood, absolutly fantastic food, and Saturday night we went to Komodo -a super cool place with great ambiance and Asian fusion food, love!! (also with a night club on the third floor if you like that)… we decided to have a casual Sunday night sharing lots of different street food. That didn’t go so well, haha, but we ate at three different places at least :)

We started across the street from our hotel at Continental, ate delicious spring rolls filled with beef and some insanely good cheese… followed by a stop at Sultan (A must when I’m in Miami) where we spilt a no 14, a plate with kebab, gyro, tzatziki etc… yum!

After a long nice walk, but with no street food we ended up at the hotel Delano!

OMG their tuna pizza with truffle might be the best I’ve ever eaten… can’t stop thinking about it, haha!!


And this is Delano’s pool, love the design here as well! My friend Glitzy stayed here last year. So glad she gave me a tour of the hotel when we met up!


We are now sitting on the flight back to Detroit (it only takes 2h 40 min!) I’m so thankful and filled with inspiration and energy after this amazing weekend. Thank you Miami, hubby, Marc and Jana -you are the best, love you all!!

Another fab day in Miami


When your bikini matches the rescue tower -Pose and take a picture!


Or two.


Our wonderful babysitter Lisa and Oliver. He used to call her Guys up till two weeks ago, haha. Now he says Lisa perfect and use it ALL the time :)


Family jet ski. Eddie-Bo started to say -This is my best day ever. After awhile when we went too fast -This is my worst day ever! Oh I love speed. I dropped off Eddie-Bo after awhile so I could go bananas and have really fun :)


Does this count as a family picture? Two of four (not me and Oliver) don’t like to get pictures taken :)



I’m always jealous of Eddie-Bo’s beach hair!

Tomorrow Friday is our last day here (for this time). Before we leave I have to take more pictures of the hotel. It’s soooo nice!!

Hello from Miami




Vacay mood is on! Sun, cabana, pool, beach, ocean and family time, love love love!! We arrived in Miami late Saturday night. Someone (nope, not me this time!!) accidentally booked a 8pm (evening) flight instead of 8am oops… however the kids slept almost the whole flight and everything went perfect.

We are staying at wonderful 1Hotel South Beach and the design is amazing! I’m getting so inspired. More pictures to come.

Now -morning work out and breakfast before another relaxing day at the beach!

The Dutch in Miami



IMG_2603Love the industrial lights.




No, we are not back in Miami. I wish though. This Michigan May weather is not as warm and sunny as usual. I’m at the moment dreaming about The Dutch, a restaurant located in the hotel W South Beach, where we stayed a couple a weeks ago. Great food all day long!

We went out last night, had sushi at Ronin in Royal Oak, so yummy. Today I’m just gonna enjoy a family day at home with no plans at all.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

W South Beach









W South Beach, 2201 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL, 33139

I LOVE this hotel. The design, cool people, great food, always a nice vibe here. It’s also kids friendly without being a family hotel. And it’s only 2,5h flight away from us. That’s why I’m keep coming back all the time, with or without kids!



IMG_2558.jpgBeachcraft,  2341 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139.

If you are in Miami I really recommend this newer restaurant, Beachcraft. It’s located in the same building as the 1 Hotel, which opened up about a year ago. I just walked thru their bar and lobby and wow, super cool. We are staying  next to 1 Hotel, at The W South Beach, that is one of my favorite hotels. I get so inspired from nice hotels and restaurants!!
