back to reality

 

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I have been a little mia here on the blog lately. I took some time off due to summer holidays.

As you may remember I was not sure if I was going to travel or stay in Denmark to enjoy summer at home.Well as you might have noticed on Instagram there are no palm tree or pool pics which means that I stayed home all summer. The weather here has been beyond what any of us Danes could have ever imagined.

We stayed home mainly due to the fact that hubs and I finally felt ready to adopt new fur babies. You might already have met them on my instastories lol – we adopted them from the local animal rescue shelter where we have been sometimes to donate money. They do an incredible job!

We ended up with two kittens because they were sisters. My heart could not bear to leave one behind when they have already been through so much together. Now they will always have eachother. I am so happy that we got them! They have surely helped me through some very tough times already.

Sadly my dear grandfarther past away during the holidays. This is such a huge loss for me and my family. He was such a caring man with the kindest heart. He could always make everyone smile. He used to sit in his chair humming christmas songs and I think I have inherited my sweet tooth from him as well. Especially my grandmothers christmas cookies are one of our common favourites.

Now I am back in the old routine of work, shooting pics for Insta and taking care of my little furbabies. They bring us so much joy already but boy they are active lol – I cant even do a shoefie or unboxing without them teasing me. The struggles are real!

Hope you all had an amazing summer! Fall is just around the corner – I am ready to take on the new season with a smile and looking forward to layered outfits again.

 

Lots of love…

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.

Thank you for reading.
