You know those days – when you aren’t really making it on time anywhere because you just have so much crap to do, people are still waiting for your replies and days are passing by quicker than they should. Lately, I have had way too many late nights and even more early mornings, with no time to make that breakfast porridge – and basically, having my shit together became a nearly forgotten memory. I mean – yesterday, I actually realised that we’re at the end of February! What’s even happening?
Last weekend here in Copenhagen was so, SO gorgeous! I woke up to those beautiful, simply perfect autumn days. Just the way I love it. It was this kind of weekends when you party at night, are way too lazy to get out to the world, so you just make a cup of coffee and go back to bed to chill. This weekend, I had this kind of days.
Well, it was a weekend filled with friends, good music and parties, slow walks, nice coffee and sweet breakfasts – exactly what you deserve after a long week. I had this Friday’s party fever the whole week and couldn’t wait to go out and just have fun. Me and my girls decided to hit the party in Chateau Motel, one of Copenhagen’s “to be” venues on Friday night. And there I fell in love – with this electronic trio called Norell, which I never heard of before, but gosh, I couldn’t get enough of them. I think you should definitely check them out!
Saturday was another party day, this time we released our make-up artists skills to create some cute Halloween faces. However, I still couldn’t compete with my roomie, dressed up as Bellatrix from Harry Potter – she was indeed my favourite costume out there! Oh yeah, what were you for Halloween? Besides this, I went out to explore Nørrebro, baked a banana bread, and started decorating my room. Just chilling.
I know it’s June, so.. a coat? What the hell? Well, here in Denmark, the weather is every day’s surprise. Last weeks were so warm that I felt I’m on my seaside holidays somewhere in the south of Europe. Well, well. This week has been cloudy, rainy and evenings had been kind of cold. Or maybe I still just didn’t get used to this Danish climate. At least, it was a great opportunity to take out my faux fur coat out of the wardrobe, and cuddle it up!
These summer days in Denmark are warm, lazy and beautiful. What is better than taking a walk under the sun and being carefree for a second, shut down the busy world around you? Botanical Garden in Odense is such place, a place where you should go if you want to slow down. At the moment, all its flowers are blooming and it’s such a little hidden paradise. That’s why me and my friend Lisa decided to do a little photo shoot there!
I always loved industrial areas of the city. To me, they have this kind of different, cool vibes. Odense, the city where I live in Denmark at the moment, is more of a fairy tale than industrial and underground. Despite of that, there are a few spots with this kind of vibes I’m talking about, and I decided to capture them on blog. On this occasion and also because summer finally came to town and to this cold country (what, believe me, is a reason to celebrate) I finally took my velvet skirt out for a walk!
It‘s morning on 11th May and I‘m walking through Copenhagen’s busiest shopping street Strøget, heading to the venue of the day, full of excitement. Morning just like any other, only Denmark was sunnier and warmer than ever.
I’m arriving at the cozy art gallery in the heart of Copenhagen. The fact, that there is something happening is obvious, when a yard looking like it was taken out of some Italian film, gets filled with journalists and bloggers from all over the country and abroad.
Sipping my obligatory morning drink – yes, coffee, I am about to explode from anticipation. What could be just an ordinary routine to others, who are working in fashion for a while, is the biggest thing ever to me.
I feel like these days are kind of chilled. Not like I’m not busy or anything like that (the opposite, help help!), but since the sun came to Odense, the city where I live and study in Denmark, its vibe has changed. Anyways, every now and then I will do posts called “days like this” where I will share my daily life, new places I discovered in town and thoughts I have in mind.
To give you a picture – Odense is a pretty small town (third largest in Denmark though) and a home to Hans Christian Andersen, the world’s famous author of children’s fairytales (The Ugly Duckling, The Snow Queen or The Girl with the Matches, to name a few). It is a cozy town where life goes slowly. At least this is how I feel after I got back here from China. It is also biking town – I think I even read somewhere it’s one of the best cities in Denmark for bikers.
