Alarm set on 7am this morning, up for a jogg down to the ocean and back home. It's so beautiful when the sun is rising and also so quiet. I like this as a routine in the morning. Today I have a fully booked day from noon to approx. 9pm. It's almost weekend!!

Ok, so for the first time ever there is going to be a Swedish festival in Los Angeles this October. I can't describe how excited I am for this! I've been a festival person since I was 14, going to all kinds of festivals in Sweden. Such as old Hultsfredsfestivalen, Sweden Rock Festival, S!ESTA and many more. Since I moved to LA I've only been to Coachella, because that's pretty much what they've had to offer. But now, Stockholm CA is doing their first time festival here in LA with some of my favorite Swedish artists. I love Otto Knows and Nause. But also, Veronica Maggio is awesome live on the stage. They're all amazing and I'm so happy that they are doing it here so I can go an sing my heart out! And I have to say, even though the artists are Swedish, most of them sing in English and everyone is welcome. Get your ticket here or check it out on Facebook! The more the merrier, everyone come together and share this experience!
More photos from yesterday. Abbot Kinney is a really hip street with many cool stores and crafts by locals. It's definitely worth a visit if you're in town. There is a lot of greenery and odd house fronts that has been turned in to stores. There is also a lot of wall paintings and arts on the walls of the stores and houses.
Today me and Daniel had a really calm and nice morning. I skipped my walk and stayed in bed for a little longer. Around noon we headed over to Abbot Kinney in Venice to take a look at Abbot Kinney festival, which is once a year. We were there last year as well and I what I can remember it was as crazy as last time. So many people all over the place, the stores bring out products on the streets and sell in tents, all restaurants are full of people and live bands in almost every corner. Anyway, even though it's pretty crazy it's a nice festival and fun to watch people. We walked up the street and back, got a oat milk latte that was really good. My eyes stopped at the enormous cookies, so American and fun! After about two hours we sat down at 3 Square Café and had some really good fries with lemon aioli. The fries had a mexican spice blend that made them taste so good. One of the best spiced fries I've ever had!
This morning started with yoga at my favorite place. My friend Mandy Martini was teaching which was really fun. After the class we got some wellness shots from GreenGo Juices, really spicy, a lot of ginger and they burn but feel really good at the same time. We also got some really good granola from Summer House.
After that I headed back home for a quick shower before going to West Hollywood to meet with our friends for lunch at Gracias Madre. It was my first time there and I was pleasantly surprised! The food was really good and the venue was so nice. I had a rice bowl that were delicious and I felt bad that I couldn't eat it all before getting too full. A great vibe and atmosphere with cool interior on a good location. It's a pretty popular restaurant and they are a plant based restaurant which is cool!
