I wanna be there every step of the way, the planning has already started and the next part is a trip to Bosnia to see the wedding venue in Mostar and also help her pick her wedding dress.

Back to reality

This past week has been a blessing. I got to spend it with some awesome people doing something absolutely amazing. We visited orphanages and children’s homes in Bosnia. I love giving back to the children because they don’t expect much, just love. I wish I could show you every single one of their beautiful faces but I’m not allowed to post any pictures of them. In the meantime, enjoy these pictures of the scenery and me and my friends.

This was a trip I’ll never forget.

Sarajevo style

This was my everyday style while in Sarajevo with natural makeup!

Back home

So sad to be back home from Sarajevo! This trip was one of the best trips of my life. Honestly. I got to hang out with a lot of friends and family, there was no drama and the weather was amazing. The Sarajevo derby was the highlight of the trip, for sure. In two months I’m back in my beautiful city again. Can’t wait!

Finally in Sarajevo!

I’M HERE! And I’m super happy about it…

The feeling of being here doesn’t compare to anything else in the world.

The drive from Tuzla Airport felt like a lifetime. Although I had some company and didn’t have go alone.

The fact that things are done a bit different down here was evident in the fact that a taxi, that’s pretty much falling apart came to pick us up. I had booked transfer from Tuzla to Sarajevo via the airline. It said online they used mini vans to transport people. Well we didn’t get that! The driver was very nice and helpful but come on, let me have what I pain for.

However, I’m not gonna let that ruin my trip. I’m here to have fun, and I will…

After I arrived and let everyone know just that I got some lunch and went to the grocery store. Took a nap. And now I’m at my favorite spot, Vatra Café at Sarajevo City Center. I had to pick up a few things and soon I’m meeting up with my fave, Linda.

Next stop Sarajevo

I’ve been waiting since October!

I’m used to going there every few months but I haven’t been since October of last year. I cannot wait to see all my family and friends and walk along the streets of Sarajevo. It brings me joy, inner peace and fulfillment.

See you soon my love! ❤

Help me choose!

You guys, I’m going to Sarajevo in a week and whenever I’m there I buy a new bag. Actually I buy one whenever I’m travelling.

I found these two that I really like. I might find something else while there but if I don’t help me choose between these two.

Which one is your favorite?

A weekend of love

I texted my mom and dad late Friday afternoon about them coming to visit me and they did. We spent a great evening together friday and Saturday we went shopping and to visit the grandparents. 

Today I woke up before 7AM to get ready for a fun filled day in the swedish capital, Stockholm. A mere 1 h and 20 minutes later Dina and I were arriving at the station. 

After a lunch meeting we went to a APU Network association dinner celebrating the Bosnian Independence Day. Because Dina is traveling tomorrow and I have a week full of meetings we had to get on a train back home at 7.30. The evening was a great success though! We got to meet some very successful and interesting people. Aida Hadžialić being on of them. She is a Swedish politician and the Minister of Education. At 28 she is the youngest minister Swedish history and she just happenes to be Bosnian aswell. 

What did you guys do?
