Me and my big sister Olivia both had our birthdays quite recently and decided to give each other a spa day away to enjoy together. We both love prefer experiences rather than material things, so this was perfect.
The little town Kivik is located in a southern part of Sweden called Österlen, known for its beautiful coastline and great retreats.
We found this little fairytale-like spa hotel right by the sea. *heart-eye emoji*
This is my incredible, beautiful, sister. And best friend. Olivia (or ia, as I call her) is three years older than me, lives in Malmö and works as a media communicator. She’s one of the smartest, most driven, kindest and strongest people I know of. In other words, the ultimate sister. Although a bit bossy sometimes.
Being close to the sea has always been one of the most important things in our lives, so we both thrived in this environment.
Hi. I could live here.
It’s almost as if I got my favourite colour pattern from this exact setting. Natural shades of blue, green, brown, sand, whites and darks. The best.
We walked around the town and found a little market, full of local produces.
Had a look around the hotel garden and enjoyed the incredible view.
Later in the evening it was time for some real spa-time. We scrubbed, peeled, treated ourselves with facial masks and hair masks, relaxed in the jacuzzi, and got all mushy in the sauna. The rest of the evening was spent having a lovely dinner in our hotel room, talking about our lives and future dreams, meditating a bit and falling asleep like two little babies.
In the morning we enjoyed the crucial hotel breakfast <3 Then we packed our bags and headed back to Malmö, where I spent the rest of the weekend at my sister’s place.
I’m not the type of person who treats myself to these things that often, but I’m trying to get better at it. This time it was definitely worth it.
