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?
Thank you for reading!
December has arrived and even though it ‘should’ be minus something degrees it is still not cold enough for long coats and boots.
A good alternative to winter coats is a great sweater! It can easily be added to any outfit to keep you warm and cozy during the day.
What I love about this paticular knit is the color. The green emerald is perfect for fall/winter and the upcoming holidays.
Also it has a high neck and the sideslits to show off what you wear
or not wear underneath.
I wore this outfit to the city for brunch and some christmas gift shopping.
This sweater is perfect for an all you can eat brunch buffet
you can hide basically anything under it!
Also christmas shopping is a workout in itself with all the walking and carrying bags of gifts!
Oh! wait Hubs did that part!
Well you get the idea!? right?

On my days off I love to go to the city and explore, have a hot cup of cocoa and shop a little.
My city is very small compaired to so many others but there is something cozy and familiar about. It feels like home.
What I love most is not the shops, because we do not have the most exiting ones – only the usual highstreetshops.
No what i love most is the buildings and little streets and soon the Christmas lights! there are many cute cafés and restaurants.
Here it is all about the Danish term called ‘hygge’ which almost always entails eating something with the people you love.
Google ‘Hygge’ and you will totally come visit Denmark!

Fall has arrived here and with the falling leaves I decided to let my long locks fall as well.
To be honest I really did not have much choice in the matter.
My hardresser must not have been a big fan of my hair, since she decided to make such a huge mess of it, that led it to be so ruined, that there was only one option. CUT IT!
Luckily it ended up being longer than what I had imagined
such a relief .
Now the shorter do has grown on me and I have found the pros of having shorter hair.
- 20 minutes less blowdry time
- when i curl or straighten it it does not take half a day
- I dont wake up doring the night being choked in my hair
- much less shampoo = more money for shoes!!
These simple 3 facts make me love it!
The cons however is:
- not having that long sleek ponytail or braid
- not that many options when it comes to hairstyles
- having to style it everyday instead of the easy bun/ponytail
Irresitible Me gave med the best of both world with their easy clip-in extensions that matches my own haircolor perfectly!
They are so easy to clip in and out and are so strong that you dont have to fear them falling out during the day. can you imagine?! All the feers and doubts that you get from other girls having extentions is nonexisting.
I wear them a lot more than I had imagined I would. I have always had long hair so I never needed extensions before, but now they are such a lifesaver. Who knew that having long hair could be that important?!
Now I can have my long ponytail back whenever I want and still have the shorter do during the workweek.
The best of both worlds – what can be better than that?

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.
Denimshorts: Saint Tropez
A new week has arrived and I thought I would share some of my work outfits with you.
When you think about working in an office most people think that it is all about suits and ties, but in Denmark we are bit more casual.
At my office there is no dresscode. Therefore there are a lot of options of what to wear. In the morning this can either be very good og very very timeconsuming.
Sometimes I wish that we should all wear suits because of the time i would save getting dressed in the morning And other times I feel blessed that I get to wear jeans whenever I feel like it.
I have mixed feelings about this issue as you might have figured out.
The cullottes trend has been around for a while now. Even though there still seem to be mixed oppinions about this trend I must admit that they are very comfy.
I found these Karen Millen Denim cullottes on sale during spring (
shop similar here) and paired them with a classic white shirt.
To make the look a bit more fun than just denim and white I added my new loafers (shop here) ,my go to work bag from Prada and gold Klarf watch (shop here).
What do you wear to work? please comment below.
Thank you for reading.
Lace- up espadrilles have been on my wishlist for a while. What has felt like a 100 years of searching for the right kind is finally over.

New Look has saved me
and my creditcard once again with their fashionable and affordable shoes.

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.
RIP skattebasse (my little stalker)
Love you always

Today I want to introduce to you a Danish label called Barbara’s choice.
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.
How do you style you bomber jacket? Please comment below.
Thank you for reading.
Jacket: Barbara’s Choice
Heels: Christian Louboutin
Jeans: One Teaspoon

Through the colder months all I pray for is warmer weather, sun and blooming flowers. Now May has come and everything I wished for has arrived.. well almost anyway.
May has left me clueless about what to wear, when I leave the house in the morning.
One day it is sunny and warm and I decide to wear a flowy summerdress and suede sandals, only to find myself regretting it in the afternoon, when it starts raining cats and dogs! We all know the struggles of rain vs. suede!
Then the next day learning from previous mistake I decided to wear my usual workwear thinking I have everything under control- it becomes the hotest day of the month!
My solution is: Wear a light top underneath your blazer and then you are good to go. I also added a pop of pink to add a little spring to my usual workwear.
What do you think makes a good workoutfit? One that can be transformed into a lighter/warmer look when needed?
