Mulled wine vs Wiener Eis Kaffee

Good Wednesday evening everyone !

It’s been a long day. Even though I’ve been resting in the day time I felt extremely anxious and so I’ve decided to go out of Nynäshamn to Stockholm. It was quite fun to walk around after a long time but it was quite cold as well and I felt quite tired due to walking with some bags. On my way back I felt like drinking something after I reach home instead of buying drinks on the rail station. And so I went inside a local store just few minutes away from where I live and decided to buy some mulled wine without alcohol and some ice coffee that was supposed to be made according to a Viennese recipe.

I actually tasted both and thought why not write a post about it. A short comparisment post about drinks. Knowing what you like and being open to changes is a Shades of me – thing after all. I’ve never tried the Swedish version of mulled wine called “Glögg” so I took one bottle. I heard many things about the ice coffee sold in Willys so I thought why not see why people are going crazy for this coffee. And so I must say it actually won my heart as well.

The ice coffee wasn’t too sweet but had a taste of perfectly blended milk with caramel sauce and coffee flavor. It was not as aromatic as mulled wine but its a cold drink so no questions there. On the other side the mulled wine had an aroma of ginger cookie spices and dried plums. The aroma filled my whole kitchen and gave a real Christmas time feeling. But the thing about this drink is that its from concentrate and you need to blend it with water or other beverage for it to feel balanced to taste. I wish I had some white or red wine to mix with it. I am pretty much sure the taste would be out of this world.

Nevertheless, ice coffee is the winner !

How about you? Have you ever tried mulled wine or ice coffee from other countries than your own? How was the experience. Is there any drink that you would like to recommend to me?

Cheers! Thank you for reading & See you tommorow my dear friends !

Despite the headache


Yesterday was a magical day and it was supposed to be fun. And even though I poured the melted candle through a key hole the day wasn’t all that great due to the news that my schedule has been emptied from all the two weeks work I was booked on. I was in that school for just one day and it was a introduction kind of day for me because the teacher would change jobs and I was supposed to be there until the new teacher arrives before Christmas. But nah… they cancelled now. When I was already all set to work. And I even need to go back to that school tommorow because they gave me the chip to open the door to school. And it needs to be returned otherwise its the same as stealing.

I was so disappointed, immediately after I got a migrane and then I had to skip german class and not even the good news of me passing the Challenge driven Innovation with Design Thinking course made it go away. I ate some omega3 pills and had some spicy noodles but instead of the headache to pass I made my ears to hurt instead.

My body becomes so weird whenever I take tensions. And everything makes me to miss Ahad even more. Christmas is about to come and I don’t feel so great. I go through some ups and downs in my mood. But despite the headache, pain and dissatisfaction I need to work so I booked myself for work somewhere else. At least for a moment. Something is better than nothing. I will probably rest today as the headache did not pass and my stomach does not feel so great. But once I feel better I will work, work, work…
