When I started with my semla dough yesterday I didn't look at the clock and it was already afternoon, around 2pm, which means that I wouldn't be finished in time. So, it takes quite some time to make semlor, just the time with the rising of the dough it self is about 5 hours in total. But, in the end it it so worth it. I know I said that I would post the recipe but let me know if you want it and I'll write it down.

Yesterday was Martin Luther King day and for many people, they have the day off. I did some photography, walked around in Venice. It was a beautiful day, warm and sunny. We've had really boring weather this winter, a lot of rain, but the good side is that the California drought is almost gone.
Anyway, it's the time of year for a very special Swedish treat, semla. A cardamom bun with almond paste, whipped cream and powdered sugar on top. Yum! So, that's what I'm doing today, baking a Swedish delicacy. I will check in later with some photos from that and a recipe.
A little short info about the semla: Today, the Swedish semla consists of a cardamom-spiced wheat bun with the top cut off and is filled with almond paste and topped with whipped cream. The cut-off top serves as a lid and is dusted with powdered sugar.
Last Friday me and my friend went to an exclusive members club to dance and listen to an extended 6h long DJ session. The DJ was from Germany and was constantly smiling through out the whole night. I had such a great time and got home at 5am in the morning. Unfortunately they don't allow cameras or any kind of photography in there but it was a really nice and cool place.
Since I got these shoes, they've been the only ones I want to wear. They are so comfy and I love the velvet. They work with anything really, just looks cute and cool. I got them from Nine West
, who is having a huge sale right now actually. I really love their shoes, works perfect with my feet and the styles are gorgeous.
So a couple of days late but, this is how I celebrated new year. I was sick (still am) so we had a pretty calm evening at Cecconi's in West Hollywood. They had decorated the place with tons of balloons and it was so pretty. We sat in the bar and I had a alcohol free sour mojito and it was amazing, one of the best drinks I've ever had. The restaurant had hats and feather tiaras for everyone, so cute. It was a great way to celebrate the new year even though I was stuffed with medicine.
I hope everyone is having a good start on 2017.
