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 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.
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.

Love is something we all need to exist in this (sometimes cruel and dark) world we live in.
Especially when you feel like nothing is going your way , when you lose something or someone, you never thought you would have to live without, when you are so heartbroken you think the day will never come where you actually feel happiness again
In these times loved ones are needed, to make sure, you get back on your feet and continue to be your fabulous self.
The beautiful ones that we often take for granted and never make enough time for.
I am blessed to have a very suppotive husband and a large family who are always there for me, when I need them. I will start to appreciate that more!
From today onwards I will make sure to spend as much time with these people (because you never know when the last time will be… ) and stop waisting precious time on things and people that do not add anything possitive to my life.
Today is the end of all things negative and the beginning of everything possitive.
My Mother in law actually introduced me to this brand, when giving me this beautiful blushpink coat. Some of you may remember this coat from my Instagram posts?
Well anyway this Danish company is know for their practical, well designed and oh so comfy coats. After wearing the pink coat a number of times through Spring I was certain that this was a match made in heaven.
With the changing weather we have in Denmark I always need to bring a light jacket everywhere as I never know what the climate will bring me through the day.
This short grey bomber jacket is perfect for any outfit. It is easy to dress up for a night out or a more casual look.
Today I have styled it with my favourite ripped jeans and heels for a casual chic look.
