Life in Stockholm (@lifeinstockholm)

MY LIFE IN STOCKHOLM, PART 3: @hannah.sjostrom • Hannah Sjöström is a former media executive turned health and beauty writer and founder of @naturligtsnygg.se. Her new book, Hello Glow (@norstedts_forlag), is out now.

How long have you lived in Stockholm? 💬 ”17 or 18 years.”

If you didn’t live here, where would you live? 💬 ”I’m a big fan of Copenhagen.”

Can you sell me Stockholm in one sentence? 💬 ”It’s the most beautiful and friendly capital in the world – hello!”

Your favourite restaurant? 💬 ”A tie between The Flying Elk (@theflyingelk) in Gamla Stan – great ambience and food, and I love their truffle popcorn – and Nytorget 6 (@nytorget6) where I treat myself to fab lunches.”

Your favourite bar? 💬 ”Cocktailbaren at Hotel Diplomat (@hoteldiplomatsthlm). It’s like an elegant Art Noveau cave and they make a mean Dirty Martini.”

Your favourite street? 💬 ”Katarina Bangata where I run my company! Full of nice vegetarian restaurants, yoga studios and greenery.”

Your Stockholm secret that you wouldn’t reveal if we hadn’t asked you? 💬 ”It’s small and always packed, and now I guess it’s gonna be even more so. This gem serves the best Indian food in Sweden: Shanti Gossip on Skånegatan (@restaurangshanti). I already regret telling you.”

If you were a visitor who had 24 hours in town, what would you do? 💬 ”First a walk around Stureplan and Biblioteksgatan for shopping and lunch at Paradiset (@paradisetmatmarkmad). Then I’d walk to the Royal Dramatic Theatre (@dramaten) and hop on a boat to Djurgården, in summer a walk to the Gardens of Rosendal is beautiful. Then dinner at Bananas (@bistrobananas), then cocktails at Gondolen (@eriksgondolen), with the bar 33 meters up in the air. Brunch the next day at Fotografiska (@fotografiska).”

If you could make one thing about Stockholm better, what would it be? 💬 ”I’m an obnoxious healthnut who enjoys gluten-free, organic and mostly vegetarian food, so I’d love more of that.”

What in Stockholm makes you happiest? 💬 ”I often get epiphanies walking around our city, taking in the water, the beautiful buildings, the greens – I just feel that I’m so lucky to be able to live and work here.”

"How do you measure a year?" Moments? Time? Love? Things you bought at cetain points? There's a song where they sing "Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes" asking the same question. I bet you've heard it
