Louise Roe Copenhagen

INTERIOR // April 28th 2016

For Christmas I got these smoke City Light glasses from Louise Roe Copenhagen. I use them for candles as they create such a cosy atmosphere. I'm really into Louise Roe's design and wouldn't mind the vase or the velvet pillows.

 

Til jul fik jeg disse fine smoke City Light glas fra Louise Roe Copenhagen. Jeg bruger dem til lys, da de giver sådan et fint lys, men skal selvfølgelig også bruges til blomster, mm. Jeg er ret begejstret for Louise Roes design og gad godt have både vaser eller velourpuder.

The Kimono

LOOK // April 18th 2016

I love this Anne Vest kimono and how it mixes Eastern inspiration with Scandinavian minimalism. The perfect combo if you ask me. I'm wearing it with a pair of By Malene Birger cropped trousers and Chanel slingbacks. The picture is taken by Thomas for a feature in the May issue of Eurowoman. The chair is designed by Gubi and purchased at Interiorshop.

Jeg elsker hvordan Anne Vest kimonoen mikser østlig inspiration med skandinavisk minimalisme. Nok den perfekte kombi. Jeg har stylet den med et par croppede bukser fra By Malene Birger og Chanel sling backs. Billedet har Thomas taget til ma-udgaven af Eurowoman. Stolen er designet af Gubi og købt hos Interiørshop.

Gianvito Rossi Over The Knee Boots

ACCESSORIES // April 12th 2016

Ever since Pretty Woman over-the-knee-high-boots have had a bad rep, but it's time to rethink because these boots have the ability to turn any outfit into something that whispers fabulous. I love mine from Gianvito Rossi.

 

Lige siden Pretty Woman har over-the-knee-high-boots haft en dårligt rygte, men det er på tiden at genoverveje for disse støvler er helt fabelagtige. Jeg elsker i hvertfald mine fra Gianvito Rossi.

Suede Leather Jacket Love

LOOK // April 3rd 2016

Thank you Gucci for reintroducing suede to the fashion scene because I can't seem to live without the fabric currently. It started with a suede trench, then a pair of shoes, followed by a skirt and another coat. Now I've added an additional trench to the collection and I love it. This one by Agger Flachs is in black which makes it more contemporary - compared to my cognac colored, 70's inspired version, also from Agger Flachs. I paired it with a pair of Frame flared jeans (I love with this brand and the Le High flared high-rise jeans-style), a Mads Nørgaard knit and Maison Margiela boots.

Stort tak til Gucci for at reintroducere ruskind på catwalken - for jeg er mega fan af materialet. Det startede med en ruskindtrench, så et par sko, efterfulgt af en nederdel og en anden endnu en frakke. Nu har jeg tilføjet endnu en trench til samlingen, og jeg elsker den. Denne er også fra Agger Flachs og er i sort, hvilket gør udtrykket en smule mere nutidigt - modsat den cognacfarvede fra samme brand, der emmer af 70'er stemning. Jeg bruger den med et par Frame flared jeans (jeg anbefaler totalt mærket og især Le High flared high-rise jeans-modellen), en Mads Nørgaard strik og Maison Margiela støvler.

Hästens Headboard

INTERIOR // March 29th 2016

The headboard is in no way imperative in a bedroom but it does add a bit - or actually a lot - of oomph to it. There are a variety of sizes and fabrics on the market, but I decided on a tufted headdboard from Hästens. I picked a color that matches my walls to make the headboard blend in in a natural way.

Et sengegærde er måske nok ikke en streng nødvendighed, men det tilføjer virkelig noget ekstra til soveværelset. Der er mange forskellige slags på markedet, og du kan endda bygge dem selv, men jeg valgte dog et sengegærde fra Hästens, da jeg længe har været forelsket i det. Du kan få det i en del materialer og farver, men jeg valgte et farve, der matcher mine vægge, så det blender ind på en naturlig måde.

Levis Vintage

LOOK // March 23rd 2016

In Los Angeles I finally found a pair of vintage Levis that fits. Or actually I found two pairs. And I've been wearing them more or less since. When buying vintage Levis, you can't really depend on size but have to look at fit, which means you have to try them on and again this means no online shopping. I found both pairs in Reformation. I'm wearing them with my favorite pair of shoes from Céline and a chunky knit from By Malene Birger.

 

I Los Angeles fandt jeg endelig et par vintage Levis, der passer mig. Eller faktisk fandt jeg to par. Og jeg har brugt dem på skift mere eller mindre siden. Når du køber vintage Levis, kan du ikke rigtig regne med størrelsen, men derimod fit,  hvilket betyder, at du er nødt til at prøve dem på, hvilket umuliggør at købe dem online. Jeg købte begge par i Reformation. Her har jeg dem på sammen med mine favorit par sko fra Céline og en chunky strik  fra By Malene Birger.

Celine Shoes

ACCESSORIES // March 21st 2016

Currently my favorite shoes. I was eyeing them in Paris in October but decided on another pair in the end, which I of course regretted (not buying the others, but not getting these as well). Luckily I found them on sale in January.

 

Mine favorit sko. Jeg så dem først i Paris i oktober, men endte med at købe et andet par. Selvfølgelig fortrød jeg det øjeblik jeg kom hjem - altså ikke at jeg købte de andre, men at jeg ikke også købte disse. Heldigvis fandt jeg dem på udsalg i januar.

Gubi Beetle Chair

INTERIOR // March 19th 2016

I've made a lot of changes at home recently. Not only did I paint the walls in my living- and dining rooms light grey, I also bought new dining room chairs. For as long as I can remember, I've had a black and white interior at home, and I really felt the need for a change and the Gubi Beetle Chair designed by Danish-Italian duo Enrico Fratesi and Stine Gam offered exactly that. The chair which is inspired by the anatomy and aesthetic of the beetle is the perfect mix of design versus functionality. I love the oppulent combination of dusty rose combined with the brass legs - that goes really well with my OxDenmarq table. The chairs were bought at by go-to-furniture-shopping destination, Interiorshop. I've been shopping furniture here for years and they always offer the very best service and got a wide selection of design classics (plus they deliver all over the country).

 

Jeg har lavet en masse ændringer herhjemme på det sidste. Ikke kun har jeg malet væggene i min stue og spisetue lysegrå, jeg har også købt nye spisebordsstole. Jeg har, så længe jeg kan huske, haft en sort og hvid farvepalette herhjemme og efterhånden følte jeg virkelig et behov for at der skulle ske noget nyt, hvilket jeg følte Gubi's Beetle stol designet af dansk-italienske duo Enrico Fratesi og Stine Gam kunne hjælpe med til. Stolen, der er inspireret af billens anatomi og æstetiske er den perfekte blanding af design versus funktionalitet. Jeg elsker det overdådige look med den støvede rosa kombineret med messingbene - det for øvrigt passe så fint sammen med mit år rigtig godt med mit my OxDenmarq bord. Stolene har jeg købt hos min faste møbelpusher, Interiorshop. Jeg har shoppet møbler her i årevis og de tilbyder altid den bedste service samtidig med at de har et bredt udvalg af designklassikere - derudover leverer de over hele landet, hvilket er ganske rart.

Both pendants are birthday gifts and currently all I really wear around my neck. One is from a local jeweler and the other is by Trine Tuxen and features my zodiac sign.

 

Jeg fik begge vedhæng til min fødsesldag og halskæden er stort set det eneste smykke jeg bruger for tiden. Det ene vedhæng er fra en lokal smykkeforhandler og den anden fra Trine Tuxen og er mit stjernetegn.

For Dressing Up When You Don't Want To

LOOK // March 14th 2016

The perfect outfit for dressing up - when you don't really feel like dressing up. I love the assymetrical cut which really does make the top.

I might have to stop by the Céline store here in Paris, while I'm here for Paris Fashion Week. I first saw them in Los Angeles and I'm still haunted by them at night. So gorgeous and just perfect.

 

Jeg er muligvis nødsaget til at kigge forbi Céline butikken, mens jeg er i Paris til modeuge. Jeg faldt først over dem, da jeg var i Los Angeles og jeg drømmer stadig om dem om natten. Så pæne.

Birthday wishes

FASHION // February 28th 2016

My 30-something birthday is near and this I what I wish for. I really want to add more jewellery to my collection. I love the Louis Vuitton L earring, which would look great with the Alison Lou stud earring and the Sophie Bille Brahe Claire de Lune earring - which I've been craving for such a long time. Also I wouldn't mind the Puzzle Bag from Loewe. Either in suede or the small version in navy, which I spotted in Illum the other day.

Min fødselsdag er lige om hjørnet og her er nogle af mine ønsker. Jeg vil vildt gerne have nogle flere smykker. Jeg elsker L-øreringen fra Louis Vuitton og ville bruge den sammen med øreringene fra Alison Lou og Sophie Bille Brahe (har været forelsket i Claire de Lune øreringe i en uendelighed). Derudover vil jeg også gerne tilføje en Loewe Puzzle taske til min taskesamling. Enten i den smukke lyse ruskind eller den lille version i navy, som jeg spottede i Illum i går.

Velvet Wonder

LOOK // February 19th 2016

Who would have thought - just a few seasons back -  that velvet would make such a strong reappearance in fashion? It has become not only acceptable, but also even coveted. As it's a grand and rather opulent fabric, you can either embrace its drama (which I will soon when I'm going to wear the kimono with the matching pants) or tone it down by paring it with denim or suede.

 

Velvet kimono by Gestuz, suede skirt by Zara.

 

Hvem ville have troet - bare et par sæsoner tilbage - at velour ville gøre sådan et comeback? Nu er det ikke blot acceptabelt, men ligefrem eftertragtede. Eftersom det er sådan et "overdådigt" materiale, kan du gøre to ting. Enten omfavne det, hvilket jeg har tænkt mig at gøre snarest, når jeg hopper i de matchende bukser, eller nedtone det og bruge det sammen med denim eller ruskind.

On My Birthday Wish List

It's my birthday soon and I wouldn't mind if one of the gifts was this bag from Céline. Although I absolutely adore the yellow version, I would however probably go for a more neutral one in black.

 

Det er snart min fødselsdag og jeg ville ikke have noget imod, hvis en af gaverne var denne taske fra Céline. Jeg er helt vild med den fine gule farve, men ville nok til mig selv vælge den i en mere neutral, sikkert sort version.

Travel Essential Part 2

LIFE // February 17th 2016

I don't just have certain beauty routines when travelling, I also have a few items, I always have to bring: a cross body bag and my very own travel pillow. The bag is really practical as it's easy to carry around and can hold everything I need (the Céline Trio bag is perfect with the three different compartments, making it really easy to have an overview of everything). Also the travel pillow is so essential as it makes my flight so much more comfy. I never use the pillows given to me by the flight operator but always brings my Hästens pillow. It's so soft.

Jeg har ikke kun bestemte skønhedsrutiner, når jeg rejser, jeg har også et par ting, jeg altid har med mig for at gøre rejsen behageligere: en cross-body taske og min helt egen rejsepude. Tasken er virkelig praktisk, da det er let lige at smide over skulderen, ikke generer på nogen måde samt kan opbevare alle mine ting (Célines Trio taske er perfekt til dette formål). Derudover medbringer jeg altid en rejsepude. Den er ret afgørende for en behagelig flytur. Jeg bruger aldrig dem flyselskabet uddeler, nej, jeg medbringer altid min Hästens pude, der er noget så blød og dejlig.

Why Valentino Rock Studs

ACCESSORIES // February 16th 2016

A higher price tag on a pair of shoes most often signals a higher quality of leather and construction, therefore you should always consider quality over quantity. That being said I do, however, often find myself in a "you-must-be-mad-to-spend-this-much-money-on-shoes"-situation. However reason was lost when I finally decided to purchase the rock studs from Valentino. I've been wanting them for as long as I can remember and I couldn't come up with a better occassion than my best friends wedding (remember the outfit?). In the end I went for the lower kitten heel-version as I can also wear those at the office. And that's exactly what you should always remember when doing a long-term investment in shoes... always pick a pair you can wear every day and not just for a night out'n'about. Also another pointer when buying expensive shoes: proper care  - cleaning, polishing, conditioning and resoling makes all the difference. A pair of well-treated shoes will last so much longer. And as a final remark.. the best testement that you did good is that you want another pair - and I definitely want another pair.

 

Når du betaler mere for et par sko, betyder det oftest også højere kvalitet - både i forhold til læder, men også konstruktionen. Netop af den grund er jeg også fortaler for kvalitet frem for kvantitet. Når det er sagt står jeg også ofte i en "du-må-være-åndsvag-når-du-betaler-så-meget-for-sko-situation". Men al fornuft gik tabt, da jeg besluttede mig for - endelig - at købe Valentino's rock studs. Jeg har ønsket mig dem SÅ længe og jeg kunne ikke komme i tanke om en bedre lejlighed til at købe dem end min bedste vens bryllup (se hele outfittet her). Jeg endte med at købe kitten-heel-versionen, da jeg også kan bruge dem på kontoret, og det er netop dette du skal huske, når du investerer i sko, de skal kunne bruges til alting og ikke kun en aften i byen. En anden ting du skal huske, når du køber sko er, at ordentlig pleje - gør dem rene, giv dem boks og sørg for at få en sål på hurtigst muligt efter de er købt, jeg lover, de holder så meget længere. Og lige til sidst.. jeg tænker, at Og som en sidste bemærkning ... den allerbedste indikation af at du har gjort et godt køb er, at du gerne vil have endnu et par - og det vil jeg helt sikker gerne.

Barely-There Strap Tops

LOOK // February 14th 2016

Minimal slip dresses and barely-there strap tops are back and have been for some time now. I'm totally embracing the trend and can't wait for summer where I got the perfect slip dresses lined up. Until then - and because I'm currently hanging out in summery LA - I'm wearing this spaghetti strap faux leather top from Zara combined with a Custommade skirt and Valentino Rock Stud shoes.

 

Spaghetti-stropper - på både kjoler og toppe - er tilbage og har egentlig været det i noget tid. Jeg er vild med tendensen, og glæder mig helt vildt til sommer, hvor jeg har de perfekte spaghetti strop kjoler linet op. Indtil da - og fordi jeg i øjeblikket er på ferie i varme Los Angeles - omfavner jeg allerede nu tendensen med en spaghetti strop top i imiteret læder top fra Zara kombineret med en Customade nederdel og Valentino Rock Stud sko.

Travel Essentials

BEAUTY // February 11th 2016

A long haul flight and lots of LA sun require a lot from my beauty routine and therefore I have a few go-to products, I always bring with me when travelling. First of all the mandatory two: water and sun lotion, which are of course totally self-explanatory. Secondly a must have in my beauty bag is an eye cream, a moisturizing face cream, a SOS-cream and a glow cream. For Los Angeles I went for Excellence's Hydro Balance Face and Eye Cream (I'm obsessed with the two-in-one-function as it saves room for those Saint Laurent booties I just bought), Excellence's SOS Power Cream and YSL's Top Secret cream. The eye and face cream is perfect for softening and restoring my skin's balance, the SOS Power Cream works wonder after a day in the sun when my skin is a bit irritated and the glow cream makes my skin radiant (perfect for a night out on the roof top at the Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles).

 

Efter en lang sej 12-timers flyvning og masser af LA sol kræver min hud en del af mine skønhedsprodukter. Af den grund har jeg nogle go-to produkter jeg altid har med, når jeg rejser. De obligatoriske to: vand og solcreme (der mere eller mindre forklarer sig selv )og derudover altid en øjencreme, en fugtgivende ansigtscreme, en SOS-creme og en glow creme. Til denne tur har jeg medbragt Excellences Hydro Balance Face and Eye Cream (jeg er besat af to-i-én-funktionen, der sparer på pladsen aka. plads til mine nye Saint Laurent støvler), Excellence SOS Power Cream og YSL Top Secret creme. Øjen- og ansigtscremen er perfekt til at blødgøre og genoprette min huds balance, SOS Power cremen fungerer efter en hel dag i solen, hvor min hud er irriteret, og glow cremen tilfører min hud glød (perfekt til en aften på rooftop terassen Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles).

Céline Sandals

ACCESSORIES // February 10th 2016

You can never go wrong with a pair of black high heel sandals and especially not when they are on sale. Therefore I had to buy this pair from Céline before leaving for Los Angeles. Totally appropriate for the LA weather, not so much the Copenhagen cold... but in time they will be perfect for those warm Copenhagen nights.

 

Det kan aldrig gå helt galt med et par sorte sandaler med høje hæle og specielt ikke når de er på udsalg. Derfor var jeg nødt til at købe dette par fra Céline lige inden jeg tog til Los Angeles, helt perfekte til de 31 grader herovre. Dog virkelig dårlig til minus graderne i DK, men inden længe er jeg sikker på, at foråret er på vej, og så bliver de helt perfekte til lune sommeraftener.

I love customized gifts, it's a great way to make the recipient feel special - and that's exactly how I felt, when I recieved this perfume from Chloé. It's still one of my favorite scents.

I'm really into cropped trousers at the moment and I adore a pair with frills. Still gutted about missing a pair from Stella McCartney on sale. I find it really feminine with the ankle peek and I would love to wear them with a pair of Céline shoes like these.

 

Jeg er ret begejstret for croppede bukser for tiden, og specielt hvis de har fine flæser. Jeg ærger mig stadig over, at jeg missede det perfekte par fra Stella McCartney på udsalg. Jeg synes kigget til anklerne er så fint og feminint - jeg ville bruge dem sammen med et par Céline sko ala disse.

My Sleep Sanctuary

INTERIOR // January 17th 2016

My bedroom is my sleep sanctuary. Not only do I spend a third of my life in the bedroom by sleeping seven to nine hours a night, but it’s also important because it’s where I begin and end each day. Still in the past it's also been the room I neglected the most. But not anymore since they way you design the space, including the colors you use and what you sleep in can affect the way you sleep dramatically. You already seen snak peek's into my bedroom previously (here, here and here) and today it's all about the bedding blankets, pillows and bedding. I always go for bedding (that's anti-wrinkle) in soft colors that goes with the walls -  in champagne, grey, ivory or silver. it has a soothing effect on both the room and myself. My pillows and blankets are from Hästens and honestly I cannot remember sleeping as tight as since I got it. The only problem? It's nearly impossible to get up in the morning because they are just so comfortable.

Off-Shoulder

FASHION // January 3rd 2016

You probably already seen your favorite streetstyle darlings shrugging off their sleeves and you will probably continue to do so for the next season to come because those bare shoulders are still the hottest trend around. I'm definitely getting one and currently my favorite is from Saks Potts. I'm already imagine wearing it to Bar Marmont for a night out in little less than a month. I will probably wear it with high-waisted trousers and stand-out-shoes (preferably one of the pairs from my 2016 wish list).

Du har sikkert allerede set dine favorit streetstyle-darlings iført off-shoulder toppe og det vil sandsynligvis fortsætte i sæsonen, der kommer, for der er ingen tvivl om, at bare skuldre stadig er en af de hottest trends.  Jeg ønsker mig selv en og i øjeblikket er min favorit fra Saks Potts. Jeg har i mine tanker allerede iført mig den, når jeg om en måned sidder på Bar Marmont i Los Angeles. Jeg vil bruge den sammen med højtaljede bukser og et par af skoene fra min 2016 ønskeseddel.

Wishlist 2016

FASHION // January 2nd 2016

Welcome 2016. I can't believe another year is over and done with. I will return with some 2015 hightlighters soon but until then have a look at my 2016 wish list. You might wonder why I keep going with these wish lists? Well, it keeps me focused on items, I feel can add something to my closet that I don't currently have. For 2015 the list included a lot of shoes: Gianvito Rossi peeptoe suede ankle booties, Gianvito Rossi suede ankle boots and Valentino rockstud leather pumps and it doesn't look like 2016 will be any different. Take a look at my wish list for 2016 so far.

 

Aquazzura Wild Thing suede sandals. Not new on the market but still classic but with the ever-important twist. Will look great with just about everything.

Gianvito Rossi green velvet pumps: I got a crush on velvet for sure and I need to add some velvet to my shoe collection. I'm a big fan of the deep dark green and think they will add some old school glamour to my wardrobe.

Celine box bag: I've been a fan of the Céline boc box bag since it came out in 2011. It's both classy and modern with it's simple lines and effortless design.

 

Velkommen 2016. Jeg kan slet ikke forstå at endnu et år er gået. Jeg vender snart retur med nogle 2015 highlights, men indtil de er klar, så kan I se lidt nærmere på min 2016 ønskeseddel. I undrer jeg m¨ske over hvorfor jeg fortsætter med disse ønskesedler? Jeg har fundet ud af, at de hjælper mig med at fokusere på ting, jeg føler mangler i min garderobe - fremfor midlertidige cravings. I 2015 inkluderede listen ret mange sko: Gianvito Rossi peeptoe suede ankle booties, Gianvito Rossi suede ankle boots and Valentino rockstud leather pumps. Det ser ud til at denne tendens fortsætter i 2016. 

 

Aquazzura Wild Thing suede sandals. Ikke nye på markedet, men det er tingene på min liste sjældent. De er klassiske, men har det der evigt vigtige twist. Derudover vil de være pæne til alt.

Gianvito Rossi green velvet pumps: jeg er ret tosset med velour og har behov for snarest at tilføje det til min skogarderobe. Jeg er kæmpe fan at den mørke grønne og føler de vil bidrage med old school Hollywood feel til mit skab.

Celine box bag: Jeg har været forelsket i Célines box bag siden den kom i 2011. Den er klassisk, men moderne med dens rene linjer og simple design.

Bisou New Year's Recommendation

BEAUTY // December 27th 2015

New Year's Eve is just a moment away and what better way to get the celebration going than with a mani/pedicure, followed by nail polish? I'm thinking of going all in on glitter this year- clothes-wise speaking, so I'm keeping my nailpolish neutural with these soft colors from Kure Bazaar.

Shop Kure Bazaar here.

 

Nytårsaften er bare et stenkast væk og jeg tænker, den bedste måde at tage hul på festen er at begynde med en mani/pedicure efterfulgt af neglelak allerede nu. Jeg overvejer at hoppe i glitter fra top til tå i år, så jeg holder min neglelak neutral med disse sarte farver fra Kure Bazaar.

Brows

BEAUTY // December 21st 2015

Learning how to groom your brows is difficult, especially since you go through all these stages of what's in style. When I was growing up, brows had to be ultra thin (and I got pictures to show it), now they have to be full and busy, which is hard - taking all those years of tweezing into consideration. However what I found really useful for that in-between stage was: M2 Beauté serum and Brow Wow. The serum is a wonder product because it really does make your brows grow - but you have to persistant. Morning and night for months. But the hairs will return and after finally re-growing them, I turned to Brow Wow, who are experts in creating the right brow shape and color for the you. I continue to use both the serum and visit Brow Wow as I'm not exactly there yet, but in time I will be.

At lære at passe ordentlig på dine bryn er svært, især fordi du samtidig går gennem forskellige stadier, hvor først det er super smart med ultratynde bryn (som da jeg voksede op) eller som nu hvor de skal var tykke ala. Cara Delevingne. Men intet skal være let, og det er det bestemt heller ikke når det kommer til at vokse dine bryn tilbage til hvordan de oprindeligt så ud. Jeg har dog fundet trøst i to ting: M2 Beauté serum and Brow Wow. Jeg har skrevet om M2 serummen før og jeg holder fast ved mit ord, den er den bedste. Er du tålmodig og vedholdende, dvs. bruger den morgen og aften i måneder, så vokser dine hår retur. Efter jeg havde gjort netop det, og hårene sporadisk vendte retur, vendte jeg mig mod Brow Wow, der er eksperter i af forme dine bryn og skabe den rigtige farve til dig.

BEAUTY // December 18th 2015

Can't believe it's almost Christmas. I still have a few more days of work, but I'm definitely getting into the spirit of Christmas. The 7th recommendation in the Bisou Gift Guide is the Luxurious Moisturizing Body Oil and Deodorant Cream from super brand Soapwalla. Soapwella was founded by Rachel Winard and created in her Brooklyn kitchen. Winard had been searching for months for products that wouldn't aggravate her sensitive skin issues caused by systemic lupus, but being unsuccesful in her search, she decided to create her own brand. The products are pure, effective and trustworthy and come from the belief that we are only as good as the ingredients we source - and I promise you the perfect Christmas gift for the beauty obsessed gf - and anyone else for that matter.

Shop Soapwella here.

 

Kan næsten ikke tro, at det snart er jul. Jeg har stadig et par arbejdsdage tilbage, men jeg er bestemt på vej til at komme i julehumør. Den 7. anbefaling i Bisou Gaveguide er den Luxurious Moisturizing Body Oil og Deodorant Cream fra Soapwalla. . Soapwella er grundlagt af Rachel Winard og skabt i hendes køkken i Brooklyn, NYC. Winard havde i flere måneder søgt efter produkter, der ikke ville forværre hendes hudproblemer forårsaget af lupus, men jagten havde været uden held og hun besluttede sig derfor selv at skabe netop det produkt, som hun ikke kunne finde nogen steder på markedet. Produkterne er rene og effektive og kommer fra troen om, at vi er kun så gode som de ingredienser, vi bruger. Jeg kan  næsten garantere at enhver pige med bare den mindste interesse i skønhed -og alle andre for densags skyld - vil elske Soapwella.

ACCESSORIES // December 15th 2015

It is the season to be jolly and what better way than with the perfect nails for Christmas and New Years. You definitely need a strong classic red called Izzy and the alluring taupe named Broken Flowers, but for this particular season, may I suggest you also go for a bitter chocolate like the Paradisco and a glittery grey for example Grace? As you can guess my new go-to nail polish brand is for sure Intensae, a vegan friendly and cruelty free nail polish brand created by Christian Roman and James Samuel. Easy to apply and really lasts. The perfect gift for your BFF. You can shop Intensae here.

Curl Up

BEAUTY // December 13th 2015

Every morning before applying mascara I make sure to curl my eye lashes with my Shu Uemura eye lash curler. How about you? If your answer is yes, note that you must use it with caution and always begin a little out and not right at the lash line. In this way you avoid unnecessary pulling, which in worst case can destroy your lashes. Also make sure to replace the cushioned pads often. If you don't, a dent will form in the cushion, which may result in you chopping the hair in half - and that is never a good look.

 

Hver morgen inden jeg tager mascara på, sørger jeg for at bruge min Shu Uemura eyelash curler for at få det helt rette buk. Hvad med dig? Hvis svaret er ja, så skal du være opmærksom på, at du aldrig på bukke helt ved roden af øjevippen, men skal tage fat lidt længere ude. Du risikerer nemlig at hive dine vipper ud, hvis du er for aggressive. En anden ting du skal huske er, at udskifte den polstrede puden ofte. I brug former den nemlig hurtigt en lille "bule", der i værste tilfælde kan hakke din vippe over - noget man aldrig helt ønsker.

Jackets as Cardigans

LOOK // December 8th 2015

Even though my Raiine Copenhagen jacket is a bit too cold to wear on it's own currently, I still use it, just as a cardigan instead. The same goes for my leather jackets. It's a great way to get a all-year-round use of your wardrobe favorites.

 

Selvom min Raiine Copenhagen jakke er lidt for kold at bruge alene for tiden, så bruger jeg den stadig, bare som en cardigan i stedet. Det samme gælder faktisk mine læderjakker. På den måde får du meget mere brug ud af dine garderobe-favoritter.

INTERIOR // December 7th 2015

It's Monday and time for more suggestions for your wish list. I've been a fan of the work of Anders Arhøj (of Studio Arhøj) for quite some time and I just knew I would love his collaboration with Kähler the minute it was announced. My favorite is the Unico vase in the dusty green (which is also available in a delicate yellow).

 

Det er mandag og tid til endnu et forslag til din ønskeseddel. Jeg har længe været stor fan af Anders Arhøjs (fra Studio Arhøj)) arbejde og jeg vidste allerede, da samarbejdet med Kähler blev annonceret, at jeg ville elske det. Min favorite er Unico vasen i den smukke støvede mosgrønne farve, der faktisk også er tilgængelig i en smuk gul.

Christmas Season

LOOK // December 6th 2015

Friday night was all about the annual By Malene Birger Christmas party and I can tell you one thing, these parties don't go down quitely. The dress code was of course By Malene Birger so I decided to wear a LBD from the latest collection and accessorize with gold Gucci heels. If you are looking for a LBD, I really recommend this one. The asymmetric shoulder gives it an elegant edge, making it much more interesting than the usual classic versions.

 

Fredag aften handlede udelukkende om By Malene Birger's årlige julefrokost og jeg kan afsløre en ting, de er forholdsvis vilde... Dresscode var selvfølgelig By Malene Birger, så jeg hoppede i en LBD fra den nyeste kollektion og stylede den med guld Gucci stiletter. Hvis du leder efter en ny LBD, så anbefaler jeg virkelig denne. Den asymmetriske skulder giver den lidt kant, hvilket gør den meget mere interessant end de almindelige små sort kjoler.

Decorate With Feathers

INTERIOR // December 6th 2015

I'm constantly thinking of new ways to decorate my home. I just decided that I'm definitely painting my living room walls in a light grey color (and I already texted a painter), I'm just about to order new dining room chairs and I got my eyes on a gorgeous embroidery art piece from Sarah Becker. However all these decisions do require a bit of consideration, either because they are time consuming and/or expensive. One thing that's not is decorating with feathers. I came across these feathers when visiting a new favorite store of mine and I just had to bring a few home and decided to put them in my antique French glass displays.

 

Jeg overvejer altid hvordan jeg kan indrette min lejlighed anderledes. Jeg netop besluttet, at det er nu (endelig), jeg skal have malet væggene i min spisestue og stue i en lys grå (og jeg har allerede kontaktet maleren), jeg er meget tæt på at bestille ny spisebordsstole og jeg er helt forelsket i det fineste broderi-billede fra Sarah Becker. Dette er dog altsammen noget, der kræver lidt overvejelse, da det enten kræver tid eller penge. Men en både du hurtigt han skabe lidt forandring i dit hjem, er ved at dekorere med fjer. Jeg besøgte for nyligt en af mine nye yndlingsbutikker og jeg var nødt til at købe et par fjer med hjem. Dem har jeg nu placeret i mine antikke franske glaskupler.

Bisou Gift Guide #3

ACCESSORIES // December 4th 2015

We have even more inspiration for your Christmas wish list, so get ready with pen and paper. The 3rd recommendation in the Bisou Gift Guide (see the first one and second one here) is the Marble Puzzle from Kristina Dam Studio. The marble comes in three different colors and can be used for decoration or even your hot kitchenware. I'm really quite in love with the playful approach. Therefore I've already added it to my wish list.

 

Vi har endnu mere julegaveinspiration klar til jer, så hav kuglepen og papir klar. Den tredje anbefaling i Bisous Gift Guide (se nummer et og to her) er marmor puslespillet fra Kristina Dam Studio. Marmoren er i tre forskellige farver og kan bruges som dekoration eller til dine varme køkkensager. Jeg er ret vild med den legesyge tilgang - derfor er den også straks tilføjet til min ønskeseddel.

Reflections By Hugau/Larsson

INTERIOR // December 1st 2015

I've had a thing for the reflection mirrors from Hugau/Larsson ever since they were launched. I just really like the combination of art and decor and - as you know - I have a thing for reflecting mirrors when decorating, (especially as a way to magnify my room- see more here). They come in different colors (midnight blue, rose gold, silver and yellow gold) but I decided on the rose gold to create a bit of warmth.

 

Jeg har været vild med refleksionsspejlene fra Hugau/Larsson lige siden de blev lanceret. Jeg kan virkelig godt lide hvordan de kombinerer kunst og indretning og - som I ved - har jeg jo en forkærlighed for reflekterende spejle i min indretning (især når de hjælper til at skabe en større rumfølelse - læs mere om det her). Dette spejl fås i forskellige farver (midnatsblå, rosaguld, sølv og guld), jeg valgte rosaguld for at skabe lidt varme. i min stue.

Tomorrow is 1st December and that means only 24 days until Christmas. But what to wish for? Maiken and I rounded up the best interior and beauty gifts to add to your Christmas wish list.

 

The second recommendation in the Bisou Gift Guide (see the first one here) is the Enrichment Leave On Mask from Tromborg. The mask helps recreate the natural antioxidant symmetry in the outer layers of the skin, and assists to slow the process of aging.
Furthermore, the mask contains an extremely powerful anti-wrinkle-peptide, minimizing the wrinkles and fine lines.



I morgen er det første december og dermed kun 24 dage til jul. Men hvad skal du ønske dig. Maiken og jeg har samlet det bedste inden for interiør og skønhed, som du kan tilføje til ønskesedlem.


Vores 2. anbefaling (du kan se den første her) er Tromborg's Enrichment Leave On Mask. Masken indeholder en af de stærkeste antioxidanter, der også findes naturligt i vores hud, og hjælper med at forsinke aldringsprocessen. Samtidig består den også af meget kraftfulde anti-rynkepeptider, der mindsker rynker og fine linjer.

Round Up: 2015 shopping

ACCESSORIES // November 28th 2015

So 2016 is getting closer and one thing I'm definitely doing again is writing a wishlist, just like I did for 2015 (here). The wishlist has really helped me stay focused and not overspend on items, I was only craving momentarily. By writing down what I really wanted to spend cash on, I also kind of forced myself to consider what I really "needed" and which items, I felt like had wardrobe-staples-potential. On my wishlist was the following:

 

- Gianvito Rossi peeptoe suede ankle booties (see mine in action here and here)
- Gianvito Rossisuede ankle boots (see mine in action here)
- Valentino rockstud leather pumps (see mine in action here)
- Céline large Trio bag (see mine in action here)

 

I was lucky enough to be able to buy all four and I didn't regret any purchases for one second. I was also lucky enough to get my hands on a few more items that wasn't on the list but that's definitely worth mentioning: Hérmes Oran sandals (in action here), Céline slippers (here, here and here), Gianvito Rossi mules (here) and Céline pumps (here). A lot of shoes I know. Too many? Probably. I will revert soon with my 2016 wishlist. 

 

2016 nærmer sig og en ting jeg helt sikker skal der, er at skrive en ønskeliste - ligesom jeg gjorde i 2015 (her). Den har virkelig hjulpet mig med ikke bare at købe items, jeg kun cravede ganske kort. Ved at overveje mine ønsker, tvang jeg også mig selv til at overveje hvad jeg virkelig manglede og virkelig gad bruge (mange) penge på.På min ønskeliste bestod af følgende:

 

- Gianvito Rossi peeptoe suede ankle booties (her og her)
- Gianvito Rossisuede ankle boots (her)
- Valentino rockstud leather pumps (her)
- Céline large Trio bag (her)

 
Jeg har været heldig nok og fået fingrene i alle fire. Derudover anskaffede jeg mig også nogle ekstra sager. Items, der godt nok ikke var på listen, men der alligevel er værd at nævne, og som jeg er vildt glad for.
Hérmes Oran sandaler (here), Céline slippers (her, her og her), Gianvito Rossi mules (her) og Céline pumps (her). En masse sko, I know. For mange. Sikkert? Er jeg glad? For sure! Jeg vender tilbage retur med min 2016 ønskeliste.

Ready, Set, Party

LOOK // November 24th 2015

As December rapidly approaches it's time to start considering which dress to take for a twirl for all the parties to come. However if you don't want to overspend more than you already do in December, may I suggest you pick a dress with more than one-party-appeal. In my case I went for this sequins number from By Malene Birger, which you can wear in several ways. I will probably mostly use it as a kimono but it actually is intended as a dress. However one thing that's important to remember is, that you can easily change the entire look with your accessories.

 

December er lige om hjørnet, jeg forstår slet ikke at 2015 er gået SÅ hurtigt. Men med decembers kommen, medfølger også overvejelser omkring hvilken kjole, du skal hoppe i til årets jule- og nytårsfester. Først og fremmest gider man - jeg gør ihvertfald ikke - ikke bruge alt for mange penge på kjolen, men jeg vil også gerne have en der kan bruges forskelligt til forskellige lejligheder. Derfor er mit valg faldet på den her pallietsag fra By Malene Birger. Den er egentlig tænkt som en kjole, men jeg kommer helt sikkert til at bruge den mest som kimono. Men allerede der har jeg et item til to fester. Husk også at dine accessories kan ændre hele looket - så skift altid smykker, sko og tasker ud.

The Notice Board

INTERIOR // November 18th 2015

I recently purchased a Notice Board for my kitchen - for keeping safe those small things that I never really know where else to put. The Notice Board comes with five wooden magnets, which makes it easy to share photos on the board but you can also write on it with chalk. I think it somehow infuses a bit of personality into the room.

 

The Notice Board by The Oak Men here.

 

Jeg har for nyligt købt en tavle til mit køkken. For at opbevare de sjove små minder, jeg ellers ikke ved hvad jeg skal gøre af. Der medfølger fem træmagneter til at hænge billeder mm. op med, men du kan også skrive på tavlen med kridt, hvis der er noget du skal huske. Jeg synes, den giver rummet lidt personlighed.

Create Harmony With Colors

INTERIOR // November 16th 2015

When selecting colors for your bedroom, you should always remember to go for a color that's producing a calming and relaxing effect. Bedrooms are after all meant for relaxation. For as long as I can remember my walls have always been white but about a year ago I finally had the guts to paint them in a taupe color. I was feeling so bored with the white and always struggled to create a cosy atmosphere in my bedroom, but the minute that paint went on those walls, I immediately felt like the room changed completely. Taupe is one of my favorite colors - for bags, shoes and nails - so of course I also picked up some bedding in that exact color (this bedding is from Hästens and is without a doubt the best bedding I ever had - plus you have a variety of colors to pick from). By keeping it in a complementary color scheme, you really draw out the richness of the color.  However in order to not make everything grey and brown'ish, I opted for two tables on each side of the bed in green marble with brass legs (not visible here but I will show you soon). This somehow introduces a hint of passion into the mix.

 

Bedding from Hästens.

 

Når du vælger farven til væggene i dit soveværelse, bør du altid huske at gå efter en, der giver en beroligende og afslappende effekt. Soveværelset er trods alt beregnet til afslapning. Jeg har stort set altid haft hvide vægge, men for omkring et år siden sidst, tog jeg endelig modet til mig og malede dem i en taupe farve. Det hvide kedede mig og jeg synes, det var svært at skabe en hyggelig stemning i soveværelset. Heldigvis ændrede dette sig i det sekund væggene fik en anden farve. Taupe er en af mine yndlingsfarver - til tasker, sko og negle - så selvfølgelig faldt valget også på sengetøj i nøjagtige den farve. Ved at holde stort set alting i samme farveskala, kan du virkelig give en smuk dybde i rummet. Dog valgte jeg sengeborde i en smuk grøn marmor med messing ben (ikke til at se her, men der kommer snart et indlæg om disse) for ligesom at skabe endnu mere dybde i rummet.

And The Winner Is...

LIFE // November 14th 2015

I'm the biggest TV series fan. When I start watching, I cannot put down the remote before I'm done. Games of Thrones  took be about 2.5 weeks, Ray Donovan about 2 weeks and Masters of Sex, which I just finished in about 1.5 weeks. That's why I definitely had participated in the Samsung Catchup Grant if work had allowed - I mean, what's not to like about being in India for 100 days, doing whatever you want: yoga, relaxing,eating, sleeping and watching series. Just the thought of it makes be want to enter - fortunately (for me) the winner has already been found. Instead I will just start dreaming of the new Samsung SUHD TV. I think, my whole tv-binge-watching-experience will be so much better.

 

Jeg er den største tv-serie fan. Når jeg først påbegynder en serie, kan jeg ikke lægge fjernbetjeningen fra mig før jeg er færdig. Games of Thrones tog mig ca 2,5 uger at færdiggøre, Ray Donovan ca. 2 uger og Masters of Sex, som jeg netop  er blevet færdig med omkring 1,5 uge. Af den grund havde jeg, hvis ellers arbejde tilladte det, klart deltage i  Samsung Catchup Grant. Jeg mener, at være på et spirituelt fristed i 100 dage, hvor alt du skal er at dyrke yoga, løbe, slappe af, sove og se serier. Bare tanken om det gør, at jeg straks har lyst til at deltage - dog er det vist heldigt for mig, at vinderen er allerede fundet. I stedet vil jeg drømme om den nye Samsung SUHD TV. Jeg tror, min besættelsen af tv-serier og selve oplevelsen vil være så meget bedre.


In collaboration with Samsung.

Visiting Ystad Saltsjöbad

LOOK // November 8th 2015

Last weekend was all about celebrating a certain birthday girl. That meant going out for Aperol Spitz on Saturday night and driving to Sweden on Sunday to visit Ystad Saltsjöbad - a spa in the south of Sweden, that has been very popular on social media for quite some time now. The drive there takes app. one hour and it's really easy to find. The location is pretty breath-taking with a gorgeous ocean-view - which you can enjoy from your hotel bed, the outside jacuzzi, the restaurant and - my personal favorit - the champagne bar. Having a glass of champagne in front of a gorgeous fireplace wearing my bikini and robe filled me with such inner peace and tranquility - and that's actually been a while. I badly want to go back (plus they serve the best breakfast ever).

 

I'm wearing Mads Nørgaard jeans and knit, a Zara beanie and my new Celine heels - and yes, I admit, the shoes was only worn for the picture, I couldn't be bothered with high heels at Ystad, but really wanted to show them to you. Much more about these in my next post.

The skinny Scarf

ACCESSORIES // October 31st 2015

The skinny scarf trend is still going strong after Prada introduced it om their Fall 2014 runway. And this season no one does it better than Chloé? I'm a big fan of the ultra-skinny scarf and especially to boost the look of a tired t-shirt or a button down shirt. Good news is that it doesn't have to cost much. Just look to Pieces, Urban Outfitters or Topshop. How to wear it you might be thinking: Center it at the nape of your neck, wrap it around once or twice and let the ends hang freely or in a loose knot.

 

The skinny scarf er stadig en catwak-trend og i denne sæson er der ingen, der gør det bedre end Chloé. Jeg er kæmpe fan af den ultra-tynde halstørklæde og synes især det fungerer super godt, med en slidt t-shirt eller en skjorte. Og den gode nyhed er, at trenden ikke nødvendigvis er dyr. Bare søg hos Pieces, Urban Outfitters eller Topshop. Hvis du er i tvivl om hvordan du bruger det, så lad mig forklare:  centrer tørklædet i nakken, og snør det en - eller to - gange omkring halsen. Lad enderne hænge frit eller binde dem i en løs knude.

The Skirt

As you know, I do love a versatile piece - and this By Malene Birger rib slit skirt is one of those pieces. Flirtatious enough to wear for a night out (perhaps with the matching top) but also good for the office with a pink knit.

Jeg elsker - som I ved - alsidige items, og denne By Malene Birger rib nederdel er en af disse items. Legende nok til en aften i byen (måske endda med den matchende top), men også god på kontoret med en rosa strik.

Chocolate Brown Suede Jacket

LOOK // October 6th 2015

One of my undoubtly favorite purchases this year is my suede jacket from Agger Flachs' SS15 collection (see it here, here and here). I've been wearing it on every occassion possible since I got it and I know it will be a favorite for years to come. It's the kind of jacket that you will keep in your wardobe forever and ever. That's also why I knew I had to order the chocolate-brown suede jacket from the brand's FW15 collection - and so I did. It's very different from the other, which is good as I didn't wanted the same jacket. It's coated and therefore really heavy, but look at it, isn't it perfection?

 

Photos by Thomas Degner

 

Et af mine favoritkøb i år er uden tvivl om ruskindsjakke fra Agger Flachs's SS15 kollektion (se den her, her og her). Jeg har brugt den til enhver passende lejlighed siden jeg fik den og jeg ved bare, at den er en favorit i mange år. Det er ligesom en jakke, man har forevigt. Derfor vidste jeg også, at jeg var nødtsaget til at bestille den chokoladebrune ruskindsjakke fra samme mærkes FW15 kollektion - hvilket jeg gjorde. Den er ganske anderledes end den anden, hvilket er super godt, da jeg selvfølgelig ikke skal have to ens jakker. Den er coated, og derfor ret tung, men tjek den lige ud... er den ikke PÆN?

Valentino Rock Stud Pumps

ACCESSORIES // October 4th 2015

I can finally cross off the last thing on my 2015 wish list: The Valentino Rock Stud pumps (see them in action here). I went back and forth for a while trying to decide whether to go for the 10 cm or stick to only 6 cm. In the end I went for 6 cm as I'm probably going to wear them soo much more. Also the low version has 3 stud straps (compared to only two on the high version), which I really like. In the beginning I also thought I would go for the all black, but opted for the classic one (nude and black) in the end. They are so comfortable to wear (I had them on for an entire wedding that lasted until the very morning) and would actually consider getting them in another color as they are such classics and works with everything in my wardrobe. 

 

Endelig kan jeg afkrydse den sidste ting min 2015 ønskeseddel: Valentinos Rock Stud pumps (se dem i action here). Det tog lidt tid at beslutte om det skulle være den høje (10 cm) eller lave (6 cm) version, men til sidst besluttede jeg mig til at holde mig til den lave, da jeg får brugt dem meget mere. Desuden har den lave version også 3 remme, hvilket jeg ret godt kan lide (modsat kun 2 på den høje). I starten troede jeg egentlig også, at jeg vil vælge den helt sorte, men i sidste ende faldt valget på den klassiske i nude og sort. De er virkelig behagelige at have på, f.eks. havde jeg dem på en hel bryllupsfest, der varede til den lyse morgen. De er virkelig blevet klassikere, så meget at jeg endda overvejer at investere i endnu et par i en anden farve. Det må blive i 2016.

Fluffy Knits

It's the season for fluffy knits and my favorite is undoubtly this one from one of my favorite brands Agger Flachs. Agger Flachs mission is to reinterpret old classics and I think they really nail it each time. I'm wearing it with jeans and Gianvito Rossi booties.

 

Der er sæson for varme, fluffy strik og min favorit er uden tvivl denne fra et af mine yndlingsbrands, nemlig Agger Flachs. Agger Flachs mission er at refortolke gamle klassiskere og jeg synes, de klarer det med glans hver eneste gang.

I'm Staying In Bed

LIFE // September 25th 2015

Hästens is so much more than the recognizable blue and white squares and I'm on a mission to prove it to you. But let start with the Hästens beds... I really never gave my bed much thought, as long as I was getting my sleep. That - however - changed a few weeks back when I had the pleasure of trying one out at the brand's flagship store in Copenhagen. While many expect to pay a lot of money for a car, not a lot are willing to spend on the place, they sleep - although it really makes all the difference. The bed I tried out was soooo comfy, and I'm absolutly sure, I would fall asleep much quicker, sleep much tighter and wake up much more refreshed if I was sleeping there each night.

Hästens er så meget mere end de genkendelige blå og hvide tern, og jeg har tænkt mig at bevise det for jer. Men lad os starte med Hästens' senge. Tidligere har jeg aldrig rigtig givet min seng mange tanker. Ikke så længe jeg fik min søvn, men det ændrede sig for et par uger siden, hvor jeg havde fornøjelsen af at besøge Hästens flagskibsbutik i København, og afprøve en af deres senge. Hvor rigtig mange forventer at skulle betale mange penge for en bil, så lyster knap så mange at betale det samme for deres seng, selvom det faktisk gør en stor forskel. Og den forskel mærkede jeg, da jeg fik lov til at kaste mig ned i en seng, der er den mest behagelige seng, jeg nogensinde har ligget i. Jeg er sikker på, at jeg med sådanne en seng ville jeg falde i søvn meget hurtigere, sove langt tungere og vågne meget mere udhvilet. Jeg må starte opsparingen nu.

Gold Necklace

ACCESSORIES // September 22nd 2015

I have a thing for long gold necklaces. I really like the classic feel, not too much, just very simple. Therefore I decided to put together two short ones that I haven't really used (as they were to short) and create a longer one. It somehow worked and I wear it all the time now.

 

Jeg kan ret godt lide lange guldhalskæder. Meget klassisk, ikke for meget, bare helt simpelt. Derfor har jeg sat to korte - som jeg ikke rigtig har brugt (fordi de netop er for korte) - sammen til en lang halskæde. Det fungerer og jeg bruger den lige nu non-stop.

Let Love Guide You

INTERIOR // September 20th 2015

I once read the following: "The only rule in decorating is to buy things that you love" and one of the furnitures I love the most is my Ox Denmarq marble table (you've seen it before here and here ). It comes in different sizes but you can also get the marble in different colors: black, green and white, the same goes for the frame: gold, black and silver. It fits to my Eilersen couch perfectly - just bought some pillows from Aiayu and Society Nordic for the couch. Can't wait to get them.

 

Jeg læste engang, at den eneste regel der er, når du indretter er, at du kun må købe ting du elsker, hvilket selvfølgelig giver totalt mening. Og et af de møbler jeg elsker mest er mit marmorsofabord fra Ox Danmarq (du har set det før her og her). Det kommer i forskellige størrelser, men du kan også marmoret i forskellige farver: sort, grøn og hvid, det samme gælder for stellet: guld, sort og sølv. Det passer så fint til min Eilersen sofa, som jeg netop har købt puder til (fra Aiayu og Society Nordic). Glæder mig helt vildt til at få dem.

Fly High

FASHION // September 19th 2015

The perfect oversize proportions, the distinct boy-borrowed aesthetic and the cosy, enveloping feel are what I love about this coat, which is ideal for transitioning between seasons. Also a great choice is you are looking for a classic coat that's still very much keeping up with current trends. Use the belt to chin the waist to balance out the volume.

Perfekte oversize proportioner, tydelige herretøjsreferencer og den hyggelige, omsluttende følelse, er bare tre af tingene, jeg elsker ved denne frakke, der er den ideelle overgangsfrakke. Også et godt valg, hvis du leder efter en klassisk frakke, der holder i årevis, men som stadig er moderne. Brug bæltet i taljen for at afbalancere de oversize proportioner.

Céline Large Trio Bag

FASHION // September 15th 2015

I finally got around to purchasing a large Trio bag from Céline. It's blue, but actually very close black - depending on the light. Seriously this is THE best everyday bag ever, easy to wear and carries all your essentials. It was on my 2015 wish list, so another thing to cross off that list. I got it from Birger Christensen.

 

Jeg har endelig fået købt en stor Trio taske fra Céline. Den er faktisk blå, men grænser til det sorte, alt efter lyset. Seriøst, det er en bedste hverdagstaske overhovedet, let at kaste over skulderen og kan rumme alt hvad du behøver. Den var på min 2015 ønskeliste, så endnu en ting, jeg kan krydse af listen. Jeg købte den hos Birger Christensen.

My Monday Uniform

LOOK // September 14th 2015

It must be a monday thing, not knowing what to wear. At least it is for me. Therefore I always end up in what I should refer to as my monday uniform: jeans, knit, boots and a leather jacket. Simple as that. The jeans are from Tiger of Sweden, the knit is from By Malene Birger, the boots are from Isabel Marant, the sunnies is from Fall Winter Spring Summer and the leather jacket is by 2nd Day.

 

Det må være en mandags-ting, ikke at vide hvad jeg skal tage på. Sådan har det ihvertfald været de sidste mange mandage. Derfor ender jeg altid i hvad jeg efterhånden kan kalde min mandags uniform: jeans, strik, støvler og en læderjakke. Såre simpelt. Jeans'ene er fra Tiger of Sweden, strikken fra By Malene Birger, støvlerne fra Isabel Marant, solbriller fra Fall Winter Spring Summer og læderjakken er fra 2nd Day.

Material Lust: Velvet

INTERIOR // September 14th 2015

One of the fabrics very much in Vogue currently is velvet. And despite years of having a love-hate relationship with the fabric, I now adore it. If you ask me, it's glamourous, yet very contemporary. A great way to start out is with pillows or even a pouf like this one. But be warned, you won't be able to get enough. I'm currently lusting for both a couch and dining room chairs in velvet. The pouf is from Normann Copenhagen and comes in a variety of colors (and two different sizes). I initially fell in love with the rose but ended up going for the grey as I decided it would last longer.

Velour er mere eller mindre umuligt at komme udenom i indretning for tiden. Og selvom jeg i mange år havde et love-hate forhold til det (mest hate for at være ærlig), så er jeg nu blevet omvendt. Hvis du spørger mig, er det glamourøst, men stadig meget moderne. En god måde at starte blødt ud er ved at gå efter puder eller endda denne puf. Men jeg advarer dig, du kan snart ikke få nok. Lige nu drømmer jeg om både en sofa og spisebordsstole i velour. Puffen er fra Normann Copenhagen og kommer i en række forskellige farver - og to forskellige størrelser. I første omgang faldt jeg egentlig for den rosa, men endte alligevel med at vælge den grå, da jeg tænkte den varer lidt længere.

Winter Coat

FASHION // September 12th 2015

It's time to look for this season's winter coat and may I suggest you steal from the boys? Menswear-inspired looks continue to be a huge focus in fashion, particularly for fall, so why not embrace it. A great way to do so is with a coat like this that offers a sophisticated mix of masculine and feminine elements. I love the check pattern combined with the classic double-breated silhouette.

Det er på tide at kigge efter sæsonens vinterfrakke og må jeg foreslå, at du stjæler eller bliver inspireret en mands garderobe? Herretøjsinspireret looks er fortsat et stort fokus i modeverdenen, især her til efteråret, så hvorfor ikke omfavne trenden? En god måde at gøre det på, er med en frakke som denne, der er en lækker blanding af maskuline og feminine elementer. Jeg elsker specielt ternene kombineret med den klassiske dobbelt-radet revers.

Fringe Dress

LOOK // September 8th 2015

I got myself a new fringe dress. Another you might think, especially taking this post into consideration, but yes you are right, another fringe dress. I just fell for the classic shape combined with the heavy fringes. Also a really great feature is that you can wear it for day as here with a pair of Hermes sandals or at night with a pair of heels.

Jeg har fået en ny frynsekjole. Endnu en tænker du sikkert, hvis du tager min sidste post i betragtning, så ja endnu en. Jeg faldte for den klassiske form kombineret med de tunge frynser. En anden virkelig god feature er at du kan bruge den til hverdag med et par sandaler eller sneakers og om aftenen med et par hæle.

Last weekend I attended Thomas' wedding wearing the Ethiopia dress from Stine Goya's FW15 collection and Valentino's Rockstud leather pumps. It was for sure one of the best parties ever and I keep wishing I could go back in time to do it all over again.

 

Sidste lørdag var jeg til Thomas' bryllup iført FW15 Ethiopia kjole fra Stine Goya og Valentino's Rockstud leather pumps. Det var uden tvivl en af de bedste fester nogensinde og jeg bliver ved med at tage mig selv i at kunne gå tilbage og gøre det hele igen.

90's Vibe

Super flared jeans like these ones from Citizens of Humanity are so straight out of the 70s. I however went for a bit of 90's vibe with the Samsøe Samsøe dress, actually pretty much something Brenda Walsh could have worn. 

 

Super vide-bukser som disse fra Citizens of Humanity er så 70'er som det kan blive. Jeg tilføjede dog lidt 90'er vibe med Samsøe Samsøe kjolen med spaghetti-stropper. Den er så meget Brenda Walsh.

Form Chair

INTERIOR // September 1st 2015

What to do when you really don't need more chairs but got a crush on one? Well, you get it in a miniature size. Meet the Form Chair from Normann Copenhagen. Designed by Simon Legald with a mission to create a shell chair with a more unified look that would stand out as one cohesive unit. It comes with both wooden and steel legs - my favorite is white/walnut wooden chair. So perfect.

 

Hvad gør man, når man virkelig ikke brug for flere stole, men har et crush på en? Du får den da bare i en miniature størrelse. Den nye Form stol fra Normann Copenhagen er designet af Simon Legald med en mission om at skabe en skalstol med et mere ensartet udseende, der alligevel skiller sig ud som én sammenhængende enhed. Den laves med både træ- og stålben - min favorit er den hvide med valnøddetræben. Helt perfekt.

Longer Length

August 31st 2015

Autumn is all about length and layering. And as I fear Autumn - such a mood killer -  is just around the corner, I try to lighten my mood, by rejoicing about the possibility to finally be able to wear those longer lengths. No doubt about which decade to look to for inspiration on how to wear the longer hem lines (a decade which I have embraced a lot this last season like here, here, here, here and here) but you can make the look a lot more 2015 by just adding a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. Another great way to wear a long cardigan is as a cover-up in between season - and for those days where a knitted cardigan is a bit to cold, add a leather jacket and you are home safe.

Efteråret handler for mig totalt om lange længder og masser af lag-på-lag. Og den eneste måde jeg kan overskue efteråret på (som jeg tror er lige om hjørnet), er at glæde mig over, at jeg endelig kan hoppe i min lange strikcardigan. Jeg er helt besat af lange længder pt - og mangler du inspiration til hvordan de skal bruges, så bare kig til 1970'erne (en årti jeg virkelig har taget godt i mod i dette forår og sommer (her, her, her, her og her). Hvis du er lidt træt af 70'erne, så kan du dog sagtens gøre looket langt mere 2015 med et par jeans og en t-shirt. Den lange cardigan er også vildt godt som cover-up her imellem sensommer og efterår - og til de dage hvor det ikke er helt nok til at holde dig varm, kan du bare tilføje en læderjakke - og du er klar til at takle kulden.

Leather Culottes

INTERIOR // August 30th 2015

In my book the best staples are always leather pants. Until now I mostly just had leggings, but I recently added these brown By Malene Birger culottes to the mix. They are really comfortable and can be dressed up and down depending on your mood. The brown cognac color goes really well with the X Jewellery bracelet in gold and khaki, the white Tiger of Sweden t-shirt and Celine slippers.

The cabinet is from Nordal and the Kubus candle holder is from By Lassen.

I min bog er den bedste garderobeklassiker uden tvivl læderbukser (og læderjakker). Indtil nu har jeg mest haft læderleggings, men jeg har for nyligt tilføjet disse brune y Malene Birger culottes til mikset. De er super behagelige og kan dresses op og ned alt efter humør. Den brune farve passer lige fint med X Jewellery armbåndet i guld og khaki, den hvide Tiger of Sweden t-shirt og Celine slippers.

Made By You

LOOK // August 27th 2015

Until recently I didn't know much about X Jewellery, but when they reached out to me and asked me to design my own bracelet, I was definitely up for the task. What's so fun about X Jewellery is that you can design your own bracelet and completely customize it so it suits your personal style and mood. All you do is pick the links you like the most, and there you go - Made by You. You can go for a classic version in all silver or bronze or pick a more contempory version with the rubber links. I went for Khaki rubber links (perfect for Fall) and combined it with Flow links. I really think it suits my style - somewhat classic, somewhat not. And as you can see, Karla also really like the result.

Indtil for nylig vidste jeg ikke meget om X Jewellery, men da de kontaktede mig og bad mig om at designe mit eget armbånd, jeg var absolut frisk på opgaven. Hvad er så sjovt ved konceptet er, at du kan designe dit eget armbånd, så det passer til både din stil og dit humør. Alt du skal gøre er, at vælge de links, du bedst kan lide og vupti Made By You. Du kan gå efter en klassisk version i sølv eller bronze eller vælge en mere i-tiden-version med gummi-links. Jeg designede et armbånd bestående af de nye Khaki gummilinks (perfekt farve til efteråret og kombinerede det med Flow links. Jeg tænker, det passer megt godt til min stil. Og som du kan se, så er Karla også virkelig godt lide resultatet.

Vee Speers

INTERIOR // August 20th 2015

I finally got my Vee Speers posters up on my wall. It took a bit of time but I'm really happy about the result. To even out the cutness of these photos, I recently purchased a lithography by Kasper Eistrup entitled Volcanologist III - I promise you, it's dark and scary and will probably go up on the wall next to these two. The daybed is a favorite in my apartment and I can tell you that I spend a lot of time on it these, snoggled up in the softest cashmere blanket from Hästens watching Games of Thrones.

Jeg har endelig fået min Vee Speers posters op på væggen. Det tog noget tid, men jeg er vældig tilfreds med resultatet. For ligesom at afblancere det meget søde i disse billeder, har jeg for nyligt købt en litografi af Kasper Eistrup med titlen Volcanologist III, jeg lover, den er sort og lidt uhyggeligt. Den kommer sikkert op på væggen ved siden af disse to. Daybed'en er en favorit og jeg kan fortælle, at jeg pt. bruger enormt meget tid på den sammen med det blødeste cashmere-tæppe fra Hästens, mens jeg ser Games of Thrones (tæppet bruges som skjul, når blodbadet er værst).

Sephora Sleeping Masks

You gotta try the new sleeping masks from Sephora. They are infused with differents ingredients for relaxing the skin and achieving a brighter, more revitalized complexion. So far I tried both the Ginseng, which is toning and firming, and the Rose that is ultra moisturizing and brightening. They are really quick to apply and easy to use. 

 

Du er nødt til at prøve de nye masker fra Sephora. Hver maske indeholder aktive ingredienser, der afslapper og revitaliserer huden. Jeg har prøvet både Ginseng, der toner og strammer op, og Rose, der giver fugt til tør hud. De er super hurtige og lette at tage på. Jeg er fan.

Fall Winter 2015 Trend: The Single Earring

ACCESSORIES // August 15th 2015

Statement earrings seems to be on-trend more or less contuniously these days - only thing changing is whether or not to wear them as a single or double. For Fall Winter 2015 you should wear only one - at least if Saint Laurent is to decide. I broke the rule however and wore both Julie Sandlau earrings with my new Baum und Pferdgarten jacket - the perfect transitional piece.

Statementøreringe er mere eller mindre on-trend konstant for tiden. Det eneste, der egentlig ændrer sig er, om du skal bruge bare en eller et sæt. I den kommende sæson - Fall Winter 2015 - skal du, ifølge Saint Laurent ihvertfald, bruge bare den enkelte. Jeg valgte dog, at trodse Hedi Slimane og brugte begge Julie Sandlau øreringe sammen med min nye jakke fra Baum und Pferdgarten - den perfekte overgangsfrakke.

A Bedroom

INTERIOR // August 13th 2015

A while back I decided to paint the walls in my bedroom - long had I been lusting for a taupeish color and I finally got the courage to do it. Fortunately I haven't regretted it for a second since and I'm so happy about the result that I'm actually thinking of doing the same to the walls in my dining- and livingroom. It's amazing how a change of color can transform a room completely. Currently I'm keeping everything more or less in the same color scale. From my Aiayu and Hästens grey, taupe (and rose) bed linen to my Ox Danmarq marble side tables and the Normann Copenhagen pouf. Only the mirrors from Omelette-ed and my cabinet from Nordal are black. Currently I'm waiting for a headboard and my soon-to-be-build balcony and I'm all done. 

 

Engang i slutningen af sidste år fik jeg, efter lang tids overvejen, endelig malet mit soveværelse taupe/grå/ish og heldigvis jeg har ikke fortrudt det et øjeblik siden. Faktisk er jeg så glad for resultatet, at jeg tænker på også at male både stue og spisestue i samme farve - eller lignende.. Det er ret vildt hvordan en farve kan forandre et rum så meget. For tiden holder jeg stort set hele soveværelset i lignende  nuancer. Grå og taupe (og rosa) sengetøj fra Aiayu og Hästens, grønlige marmorborde fra Ox Danmarq og grå velour puf fra Normann Copenhagen. Det er kun spejlene (har faktisk to, men kun det ene kan ses) fra Omelette-ed og skabet fra Nordal der er sort. Nu mangler jeg bare en sengegavl og min altan, der snart skal bygges, før jeg er helt færdig med soveværelset.

Leather jacket

LOOK // August 12th 2015

I'm the living proof that you can never have to many leather jackets. This is my 9th but I love it just as much as the others. I really like the cropped but boxy fit, giving it a very sporty look. Also it has a bit of Balenciaga vibes, which I absolutely adore. Perfect for jeans and a t-shirt but I also like the combination with leather culottes and a rib top. It will definitely be a favorite in my closet for years to come - and for sure not the last time it will be featured on here.

Jeg er det levende bevis på, at man aldrig kan få for mange læderjakker - især taget i betragtning at dette er nr. 9 i samlingen. Jeg har optur over, at den er cropped men stadig har et boxy fit, hvilket resulterer i et ret sporty look. Desuden har den lidt Balenciaga vibes, hvilket jeg elsker, elsker, elsker. Perfekt til jeans og t-shirt, men jeg kan også godt lidt kombinationen med læderculottes og rib top. Helt sikkert en favorit i mit skab i mange år fremover - og helt sikkert heller ikke sidste gang den optræder her.

INTERIOR // August 1st 2015

I moved into my apartment 1,5 years ago and I'm still not done with it. But I'm getting there and once it is ready, I got a lot of interior posts to share with you. For getting the right imagery, I definitely need a great camera and therefore I'm thinking of purchasing the new Samsung Galaxy S6 as I hear the camera is brilliant. It's instantly able to take a good snap (remember to follow on instagram where I'm sharing my favorite Summer spots), the auto focus is very quick and accurate and the colors are always rich - just what I need.

 

Jeg flyttede ind i min lejlighed for 1,5 år siden, og jeg er stadig ikke færdig med den. Men jeg er på vej og så snart den er færdig,  der, og når den er klar, har jeg en masse bolig-posts, jeg vil dele med jer. For at få de helt fede billeder, har jeg brug for et godt kamera, og af den grund overvejer jeg at købe den nye Samsung Galaxy S6. Kameraet skulle nemlig være vildt godt. Det kan på ingen tid tage et godt snap (husk at følge mig på instagram, hvor jeg pt. deler nogle af mine yndlingsspots i København), autofokus er lynhurtig og præcis og farverne er altid dybe og lækre - lige hvad jeg har brug for.

Inside the Lines

LOOK // July 29th 2015

I've decided to once again try and grown my hair a bit longer, however I'm confident the attempt will fail. It's the same story every time. I reach a certain length and the ends start to split and that's when I have to get that dreaded hair cut. At least that's the story until now. I recently heard of a restoring keratin treatment that reconstructs the hair fibres and amplifies the hair (perfect for growing it longer), and I of course had to give it a go. So I went by Cafuné, a new salon situated in Central Copenhagen, and tried out the treatment - and I liked it. Not only did I get THE best head massage ever, my hair is all plum and feels so much stronger but with out being all stiff. I defintely recommend the treatment if you are thinking of growing out your hair like me.

 

I'm wearing Agger Flachs suede jacket, Gianvito Rossi boots, Lovechild 1979 top and Boas Copenhagen necklace.

 

Jeg tænker, jeg skal afprøve koncept langt (længere) hår endnu engang. Egentlig har jeg jo forsøgt tidligere, men med begrænset succes. Det er den samme historie hver gang. Jeg når en vis længde og så begynder enderne at spalte og jeg er nødt til at smutte til frisøren. Sådan har det ihvertfald været indtil nu, men ikke mere. Jeg har nemlig afprøvet en genopbyggende keratinbehandling, der rekonstruerer og forstærker hårets fibre (perfekt når man forsøger at få det længere) og behandlingen var et hit. Mit hår er blødere og føles langt stærkere. Behandlingen afprøvede jeg hos Cafuné, en ny salon beliggende i det centrale København og jeg fik samtidig verdens bedste hovedbundsmassage. Jeg kan bestemt anbefale både behandling og salon, så kig forbi, hvis du ligesom mig prøver at få længere hår - eller "bare" trænger til klip eller farve.

Cirkelbroen

LOOK // July 25th 2015

I'm in love with Copenhagen and I thought it was time to take you on a small tour of amazing spots in Copenhagen - starting with "Cirkelbroen" designed by artist Olafur Eliasson. The bridge, which is inspired by the sailing boat and Christianshavn's history and culture relating to the canals, is a bridge for the pedestrians and cyclists that crosses Christianshavns Kanal. The bridge is set to open August 22 2015 and should (also) be visited at night when it's lit and immensely beautiful (picture here). I'm wearing one of my favorite pieces from By Malene Birger's Fall Winter 2015 collection - the Lionias shirt.

Broen, der er inspireret af områdets historiske og kulturelle kontekst, er skabt til de fodgængere og cyklister, der hver dag krydser Christianshavns Kanal. Man regner med at mere end 5000 mennesker, hver dag vil bruge broen, der er sat til at åbne den 22. august 2015. Broen skal (også) besøges om aftenen, hvor den er oplyst og helt utrolig fin (se billede her). Jeg er hoppet i en af mine yndlingsitems fra By Malene Birgers Fall Winter 2015 kollektion - Lionias toppen.

Night Rituals

BEAUTY // July 21st 2015

When I was younger, I never did much to remove makeup and cleanse my skin at night, but as I gotten older this has become more or less a religion to me, especially since I once read that you skin age 28 days (!!) each time you DON'T make sure to remove makeup and dirt before you go to bed. I mean, I don't want it to age that much just because I'm lazy. I'm not particulary loyal to my products though - but this might change after trying these ones from Chanel. I start by removing mascara (with a classic from Matas - the best one on the market if you ask me) and then apply the cleansing milk, making sure to massage it in to the skin, removing it with cotton pads. Afterwards I use a toner, that's both hydrating and soothing. On most nights I end up the routine with eye creme and a night cream, but on two nights a week I also make sure to exfoliate the skin with a mousse and then apply a mask that refines, smoothes and purifies skin. 

 

Tip: On those lazy days make sure to do this when you get home from work. Then it's done and you aren't tempted to skip it later on when you are exhausted and just want to sleep.

 

Da jeg var yngre, fjernede jeg meget sjældent makeup inden jeg kig i seng - for slet ikke at snakke om at rense huden, men efter jeg er blevet ældre er det blevet mere eller mindre en religion for mig. Måske især fordi jeg engang læste, at din hud ælder 28 dage (!!) hver gang du IKKE gør det inden sengetid. Hvem vil ældes hurtigere bare pga. dovenskab. Ikke mig ihvertfald. Jeg er dog ikke særlig loyal over for mine produkter - men det ændrer sig muligvis efter at have prøvet denne serie fra Chanel. Jeg starter med at fjerne mascara (med en klassiker fra Matas - den bedste på markedet, hvis du spørger mig) og derefter anvender jeg rensemælk, og sørger for at massere det godt ind i huden inden jeg fjerner det igen med vatrondeller. Bagefter bruger jeg en toner, der er både fugtgivende og beroligende. De fleste aftener ender rutinen med øjencreme og natcreme, men to gange om ugen sørger jeg også for at exfoliere huden med en mousse for derefter at anvende en maske, der renser og udglatter huden. 



Tip: På de dage hvor jeg er doven, sørger jeg altid for at gøre ovenstående lige når jeg kommer ind af døren. det er gjort, og jeg fristes ikke til at springe ikke fristet til at springe det over senere på aftenen, når jeg er træt og bare vil sove.

Endless Options

LOOK // July 20th 2015

The ribbed slit top is one of my favorite pieces from By Malene Birger's Fall Winter 2015 collection and for sure that kind of item that makes you feel stylish and comfortable at any time. In fact so stylish and comfortable that I had to order it in burgundy also. It's easy to wear and gives you endeless styling options. Here I'm wearing it with a pair of denim jeans and my new - bought-on-sale-60-percent-off - Gianvito Rossi mules (sold out in black but still available in an amazing grey color here) from Matches Fashion.

Den ribbede top med slids er en af mine yndlingsitems fra By Malene Birgers Fall Winter 2015 kollektion, og helt sikker en af de items i garderoben, der altid kan få dig til at føle dig både smart og komfortabel. Faktisk smart og komfortabel at jeg har været nødt til at bestille det i bordeaux også. Det er let at bruge og kan styles på et utal af måder. Her bruger jeg den med et par denim jeans og min nye - købt-på-udsalg-minus-60-procent - Gianvito Rossi mules (desværre udsolgt i sort, men stadig tilgængelige i en smuk grå farve her) fra Matches Fashion.

The Classic Mens Watch

ACCESSORIES // July 19th 2015

A classic watch never goes out of style, so it's definitely a place to invest (like I did with this Omega Seamaster from 1958). However, if you have more dash than cash, I recommend you take a look at Skagen's selection of watches. I personally especially like the mens collection, which this one is from. Can't wait for the leather watchband to age and get that vintage touch and feel. Skagen recently re-opened their Copenhagen store, located at Vimmelskaftet in Central Copenhagen, which introduces the brand's new retail concept for the first time.

 

Et klassisk herreur går aldrig af mode, så det er altid en god investering (jeg elsker mit Omega Seamaster fra 1958). Men hvis budgettet ikke er til en større investering, så kig hos Skagen, der har et stort udvalg af klassiske ure. Personligt er jeg altid mest til herreure, hvilket dette egentlig også er. Jeg glæder mig til læder-urremmen får patina og bliver smukt og lækkert. Skagen genåbenede for nyligt deres flagskibsbutik på Vimmelskaftet i København K,  der også for første gang introducerer brandets nye retailkoncept i Danmark.

Byredo

FASHION // July 16th 2015

Byredo has the best products. I love their scented candles but the hand lotion is a very close second. Byredo recently got together with Olivers People on a collaboration consisting of perfumes and sunglasses. I would love to get a hold of the box set.

 

Byredo har de bedste produkter. Jeg er besat af deres duftlys, men mærkets håndcreme kommer på en sikker 2. plads.Faktisk har Byredo og Olivers People for nyligt gået sammen og lavet en serie bestående af både solbriller og parfumer. Jeg gad ret godt have box-sættet.

Home Wishes

LIFESTYLE // July 15th 2015

I'm one of the most indecisive persons I know. It always takes me an eternity to decide on new items for my home (and everything else in my life), don't know why, that's just a part of who I am. Currently I'm - however - really lusting these products. I love the organic shape of the Flos lamp with the cute name (Snoopy - yes, I do see the resemblance), also I've been looking for a cool pouf in what feels like forever and this one immediately had my heart - velvet and blush - what's not to love. I really want it. I always need candles and art. Byredo has the best scented candles on the market and I'm infatuated with this lithography by Kasper Eistrup (perfect to balance out the sweetness of the Anne Sofie Madsen and Fotografiska pictures in my home. So dark but alluring) and then there's the fig plant. Gimme one (although I hear it's best to keep these outside).

 

1. Flos Snoopy table lamp, 2. Norman Copenhagen velvet pouf in blush, 3. Byredo scented candle,  3. Kasper Eistrup litografi, 4. Ficus Carica plant

 

Jeg er en af de mest ubeslutsomme personer, jeg kender. Det tager mig altid en evighed at træffe beslutning om nye ting til mit hjem (og om alt andet i mit liv for den sags skyld), jeg er ikke helt klar over hvorfor egentlig. I øjeblikket er jeg  dog helt vild med disse sager. Jeg elsker den organiske form på Flos lampen med den søde navn (Snoopy - ja, jeg kan se ligheden). Derudover har jeg været på udkig efter en cool puf i hvad der føles som en evighed, og denne stjal straks mit hjerte - fløjl og en smuk lyserød - hvad er der ikke at elske? Jeg vil SÅ gerne have den. Jeg kan også altid brug lys og kunst. Byredo har de bedste duftende lys på markedet, og jeg er helt betaget af litografien af Kasper Eistrup (perfekt til at balancere de søde Anne Sofie Madsen og Fotografiska billeder i mit hjem. mørk, men så dragende), og så er der den figneplante . Giv mig en (selvom jeg dog hører , at de er bedst at beholde udenfor).

Hermés Boxes

FASHION // July 11th 2015

Nothing spells out l-u-x-u-r-y like a stack of orange Hermés boxes but did you know that they haven't always been orange (or "Potiron" as the shades is actually called)? Back in the 1920s and 30s, Hermés goodies were actually first brought home in cream-coloured imitated pig skin boxes, and later on changed into a mustard-colour. It wasn't until around the 2nd World War that the orange cardboard boxes were introduced - simply because paper was all that was available. After the war the orange colour continued but in a tad brighter with the logo imprinted on the box. The brown ribbon, which i actually called "Bolduc", was introduced in 194. Each year the Bolduc features a different theme, so it's quite the collector's item. There are about 188 different kinds of Hermés boxes, from tiny ones made for jewelry to the huge ones that comes with your Birkin bag. I'm sure as you know, all good things come in orange boxes. These boxes are from Green Square (love this place) and unfirtunately not for sale.

 

Der er få ting, der er helt så luksuriøst som en stak orange Hermés kasser, men vidste du, at de faktisk ikke altid har været orange (eller "Potiron", som nuancen hedder)? Tilbage i 1920'erne og 30'erne blev alt Hermés pakket i creme-farvede imiteret læder kasser, hvilket senere ændrede sig til en sennep-farvet version. Det var først omkring 2. Verdenskrig at de orange papkasser blev introduceret - af den grund at papir var det eneste, der var til rådighed. Efter krigen  fortsatte den orange, dog i en smule lysere version og med logo trykt på kassen. Den brune bånd, som kaldes "Bolduc" blev taget i brug i 1949. Hvert år har Bolduc et nyt tema, så båndet i sig selv er faktisk et samlerobjekt. Der er omkring 188 forskellige slags Hermes kasser, fra de helt små beregnet til smykker over til de helt store, som en Birkin taske bliver pakket i. Det er som om, at alle gode ting, kommer i orange kasser. Disse er fra Green Square (jeg elsker det sted) og desværre ikke til salg.

Day 4

LOOK // July 7th 2015

Last and final day of Roskilde - and also the hottest day of them all. And of course also the day I decided to wear jeans. Foolish me. I was apparently going for a 70's vibe with Citizens Of Humanity flared jeans (these), By Malene Birger striped silk shirt and Linda Farrow oversize sunglasses.

 

Allersidste dag på Roskilde - og også den varmeste af dem alle. Og selvfølgelig netop den dag  jeg er hoppet i et par varme, varme, varme jeans. Dumt af mig. Jeg gik tydeligvis efter 70'er vibe med Citizens Of Humanity flared jeans (disse), By Malene Birger stribet silke skjorte og Linda Farrow oversize solbriller.
