Summer in the city?

Ever since I came home from London I have been even more wonderlust than before I went!

The few days I was there was amazing but oh so little time! I feel like I could have stayed there forever and never be bored or uninspired ever again!

Traveling always inspires me to think differetly in order to travel more and very importantly to new places even though London is my second home I need to explore!

If the weather changes here in Denmark I might stay home but the chance of that happening is about zero – not happening.

and also another house project is not really what I had in mind this summer! All you house owners out there know what I am talking about!

So for the sake of not spending yet another summer in Denmark and doing another house projekt I need to find a great destination to explore! This is why I need your help!

Where are you going this summer and why? Do you have any recommandations? preferably in Europe.

I am thinking about sun, sea and sand kind of vacation, but still with some cultural attractions or beautiful nature.

please comment below on where you think I should go 🙂

London I love you!

Those of you who have been following me for a while know about my eternal love for London.

I used to visit twice a year but this time I had to wait a little longer than usual. I guess life got in the way.

But now I am back and even though it is only for a few days I will make the most of it!

Not only is this a getaway for me and my husband, but also planning a little get together with a couple of other Instagram bloggers who I have been talking to and admiring since the beginning of this entire Instagram journey.

You might know the faboulous and sweet Ashley from @miss_gunner who I talk to on a daily basis and who I like to call my friend.

We have chattet a lot during the years and some of you may remember that we first met in Amsterdam a few years ago.

This time when we met I was so lucky to meet Camilla from @ave.camilla as well! Her bubbly personality is so contagious that you cannot be anything but happy when you are around her.  And do not even get me started on her natural beauty! How can anyone be so gorgeous is beyond… 

We had brunch at the cutest cafe on Portobello road with our husbands! It was so fun to meet the girls and also the other talented men behind the camera. I bet they had a lot to talk about as well.

The trip was not all about blogging, but also about exploring what I like to call my second home.

We always visit the British Museum. The building in itself is so beautiful with the glass ceilings and marble floors.

Also Covent Garden is a must everytime! I love the atmosphere and of course the cute cafes and shops.

Ofcourse I am dreaming of living in Notting Hill with the crisp white houses or the gorgeous pink house next to Portobello road!

This city holds so many great memories for me and I feel so inspired everytime I visit.

It was the first big city I ever visited both with and without my parents. We have family close to the city so when I was younger we used to visit a lot.

Also it is the place where my husband proposed! Yup right in the middle of Kensington gardens on a sunny January day he popped the big question!

And the rest is history!

Do you have a favourite city in the world other than your home?

The Classic Trench

I know we should be talking about spring clothes and sandals, but when Spring feels more like Autumn it is hard to make the transistion.

Therefore when I was packing for Copenhagen it was quite a challenge since the weather was changing so much!

The first day here it rained a lot and therefore I decided to wear my very beloved Burberry trenchcoat. It is such a classic piece that you can wear all year around.

I remember the day I bought it like yesterday. That feeling when I finally had saved just the right amount for this classic. Nothing feels better than finally being able to buy something you worked hard for.

Black was the only option for me since I wanted to make sure that I would wear it season after season.

The questions I always ask myself when investing in a more expensive piece of clothing: “how much will I wear this piece?” ,  “Can I wear it with most of my existing wardrobe?”

This is not to make myself more sure of whether or not I love the product. It is to show myself that spending this big amount on one piece of clothing is okay.

When you shop designer pieces do you consider it as much as I do? or are you more spontanious?

Thank you for reading! 🙂

Sunny Copenhagen?

When ever I get the chance I love to visit our sunny captital! I love everything about this city! The streets filled with beautiful architecture, the shops and the cutest cafes on every corner.

I love how different it is from where I live now – so busy and upbeat!

There is always an event, a big designer sale or a cute new boutique to visit!

This time I went mostly for the blog to connect and view all the new spring / summer collections comming, but of corse I made time to explore the city with hubs. 

When I visit Copenhagen i always have to stop by Illum – or marble heaven as i like to call it! You can see why in the pictures. Also I have a weakness for the roof top terrase. 

Not only for the view, but also for the food and the best macarons in the country!

If i ever had the oppertunity i would move there in a heartbeat! Well at least thats what i tell myself i would, but then the fear strikes of everything you would be leaving behind and all the responsibilities you have where you are? 

Have you ever just packed up your life and moved somewhere new and exiting?

Prague getaway

It feels like October and November has just flown by! Dont know what happened?! have been sooo busy that I have neglected the blog!

Now it is time to get back in the game before this crazy year ends!

A few weeks ago I had the chance to fly to Prague for work and it was exactly what I needed!

Just to get away from everything even though it was for work to clear my head and get a fresh start.

Prague is such a beautiful city with cobblestones everywhere and every building is Instaworthy!

The view from my hotel says it all! Best sunsets!

The hotel was nothing special but to my surprice my room had the most amazing all marble bathroom! Instagoals!

Unfortunately I was only here for a few days and with work there was limited time for exploring but I managed to do a little damage aka shopping and making my sweet colleague take my ootd’s! I mean what are colleagues for if not helping eachother out?!

End of Summer

 

I cannot believe that summer is almost over! Time flies by so fast!

After 3 weeks of nonstop eating, sleeping in, exploring and doing housework cause thats what being a houseowner does to you– it feels strange to get back into the old routines. and at the same time it feels so natural, that after a couple of hours, at the office, it does not even feel like I have been away.

If you follow me on Instagram you might have noticed that my Instastories are filled with naturevideos and pics. Denmark is so beautiful during summer that i had to share it with you!

It is such a small country and yet there are always new things to explore.

Like this old bridge where these pictures where taken. It had been in hiding for 85 years! Now it has been restored and made into a turist attraction.

For a day of exploring I decided to wear a layered outfit due to the changing weather. I still wanted a summerish look but had to add a trench to keep warm.

I like my classics and immediately went for my denimshorts that I have practicly been living in all summer due to their comfy style. Then added a lace top and my fav shoes of the month.

I  have visited a lot of the beautiful attractions Denmark has to offer this summer and I am not nearly done! I have many more on my ‘need to explore’ list.

Do you also like to explore your own country and its attractions?

I am already dreaming about my next roadtrip adventure.

Thank you so much for reading.

Oldtown

If you Google Odense -Wikipedia will tell you that this was the city Hans Christian Andersen was born, about the old houses, churches and museeums.

It is also the town where I grew up.

Although I lived a few miles outside the citycentre this was still the place we went to shop, eat, go to the movies and so on.

I could go on and on about what this city i  known for, but I would rather show you some of the hidden treasures, the old part of the city, one of the cutest boutiques and my new favourite spot to have coffee and treats.

Pinoc - Vestergade 82

Pinoc has existed for a few years and is such a cute shop. They carry most of the Danish designers like Day Birger et Mikkelsen and By Malene Birger, but you can also find jewelry, phonecases, bags and if you love interior design this place has the best items.

After a little shopping I like to stop at a café to have lunch or just a little treat in the afternoon.Actually I read recently that the people that live in Odense love to eat out so there are a lot of new restaurants and cafés popping up. whenever a retailstore closes. I guess we like to eat more than to shop?! how did that happen?!

One of the places that I love to visit is Brød – they have the custes little café with coffee and all the Danish treats you can think of.

After a little treat I like to walk through the old cobbled streets away from all the highstreet shops and crowds. This area of the city has a lot of old buildings, shops and galleries.

Like the old shop called Kramboden where I used to go with my grandmother and siblings every vacation to buy candy and look at the old fashioned toys. You can buy everything from old tin, kitchen equipment to toys and candy here.

The houses are the cutest leaning buildings and are very hard to get a hold of. They are often past on from one generation to another.

If you are ever in Denmark this is a special area to visit and also if you want to see where Hans Christian Andersen grew up this is just in the neighbourhood.

Cloud free skies

image

This year instead of traveling to palmtrees and white sandy beaches I choose to stay home and explore the beautiful sightings in Denmark. Hopefully this fall weather we are experiencing will turn into sun and cloud free skies by the time my vacation starts.

With everything that is happening in the world right now it would be wrong to complain about the weather we are having, the oppertunities we did not take or the life we are living.

It is time that we start living everyday to the fullest. Appreciate what we have and the people in our lives.

We ourselves are resposible for the life we choose to live. If you are not happy about something in your life change it. You are the only one who can do it.

 

Do what makes you happy. All day everyday.

Daily Inspo

If you dont know this by now I looooove fashion and everything about it. The only thing is i dont really know why?

People often ask me why I dont work in the industry, when I love it so much. To be honest I do not have an answer.

I did not grow up in a fashionable home like some of my fellow bloggerfriends did, where their mother had a passion for fashion and me and my friends could go ‘shopping’ for Chanel and other famous labels in her closet.

The closest person, I can remember who inspired me, fashionwise when I was little, was my grandmother. She always looked so well put together in her trenchcoats, heels and skirts.

Later I spend a lot of money (read all my money) on fashion magazines. Like Carrie Bradshaw would say it I felt that it fed me more than food.

Today inspiration is everywhere –  just a tap away. Everyone have access to social media, blogging away about what they love the most.

I love social media and how it can connect you with people, all over the world, you otherwise would never have met.

On the other hand do actually enjoy the moment were in while we type away on our cellphones, computers and tablets. Are we to fixated on getting a perfect shot for Instagram that we simply forget to live in the moment?

Has it all become to much?

Where do you find inspiration? Please comment below.

 

Thank you for reading.

Amsterdam

 

As I am standing outside Hotel the Sofitel legend the Grand in Amsterdam I can feel the butterflies in my stomach. I have been looking forward to this day for months and now the day has finally come!

Through the windows in the gold revolving door I see her! She is even more beautiful in ‘real life’ as I had already predicted. She sends me the biggest smile and hugs me so tight, as I come through the door.

Ashley is her name, but you probably know her better as @missgunner – the sweet fashionloving aussie on instagram.

A moment later possitive energy is filing the lobby as Kelly @thehouseofkelly walks through the doors. She immediately catches everyones attention with her loving outgoing personality. She has brought her sister Daisy –_@daisy_stylerepertoire  , who we all know is behind the fashion online shop Stylerepertoire.com – and let me tell you: she is the sweetest girl ever! A little shy like myself so we clicked instantly.

The entire afternoon we spend eating lunch, lauching and shooting of course. It was so lovely to finally meet someone who had the same interests as you and who did not judge you for taking pictures of your food etc. – So worth the 8 hrs drive!

I hope to spend more moments like these in the near future.

Thank you for a lovely day ladies! xoxo
