An Instagrammers Guide to: Stockholm
I enjoy traveling. I really really enjoy it. That is why I decided to start this series called "An Instagrammers Guide to". I often find, when searching for information on new destinations, that guides that are not too "touristy" are impossible to track down. I would not go to the length of calling my guides not touristy, because in fact: they are. BUT (!!) I will say this: My guides are made for people who want to enjoy a city or destination from all perspectives. They are for food lovers, that are not afraid to eat a greasy burger, nor spend some extra money on teeny tiny plates of gourmet. My guides are for fashion lovers, who love everything from vintage, to the high-street, to luxury goods. And most, most importantly: my guides are for Instagrammers! People that have no shame using flashlight in restaurants, taking outfit pictures in front of a crowd, or spamming their Instagram followers. Because when you are traveling, you are allowed to do that! So here's to NO SHAME! (Pssttt... if you don't familiarize with this, that is okey. You are welcome too!)
This is the second guide in the "An Instagrammers Guide to"-series. Click here to read about London.

"I have always wanted to eat dinner at Berns. The venue is beautiful and has a lot of details, which me as an Instagrammer really appreciate. I had shrimp sushi and a glass of rosé. I imagine, if you go here during fashion week, that this is the perfect spot for people watching. They also have a lovely outside seating, which would be perfect for brunching".

"Dad convinced me and my sister to go to this restaurant. It was right by out hotel, and as we were very hungry, we decided to give it a try. I have never been to a lebanese restaurant before, so I didn't know what to expect. As we couldn't decide on what to get, my dad just said to the waiter that he should decide. We got lots of different small platters with traditional lebanese food. Among these were hummus, fried halloumi etc. Everything tasted delicious, and the service was really great!".

"Whenever I am in a city with a Sephora store, I just have to stop buy to stock up on some of my beauty favorites. We don't have Sephora in Norway, so there are a lot of beauty brands I cannot get ahold of here. I used to be quite a beauty junkie, and still have a big interest in make-up and skincare.

"We ordered our stay long before this hotel even had opened, so we were excited to see what it would be like when finished.

If you want a cheaper alternative to a designer hotel, this is the place!"
