I've finally gotten some plants in my apartment! It has been pretty "dead" so far with only freshly cut flowers (they are lovely too though). I got the two lemon trees a long time ago but they've been at my house in Sweden and I recently bought a pair of olive trees. I love the Mediterranean vibes of these trees and they are in the most perfect pale terracotta pots. So pretty! Now I just have to get a Monstera - I already got a huge pot for it. So if you have any ideas of where to get a Monstera, I'd be really happy to know because the two places I know are all out. Today is a pretty chill day, I'm going to study some Biochemistry, go to the gym and perhaps go to Magasin to have a look. And then I'm planning on Skype watching The Killing with my boyfriend tonight.

Hi lovelies! Sorry for blogging so late in the evening. I went to school pretty early to finish an assignment and then I had a tutorial. Afterwards, I went home to study, have lunch and make a few calls before going to Hatha yoga. It was nice to get some meditative exercise prior to the weekend. Unfortunately, tonight wasn't about picking an outfit and going out for cocktails at my favourite cocktail bar but instead I've been studying most of the evening and I made myself dinner and put some chickpeas in water for a recipe that I'm trying out tomorrow. Well, I'm pretty sleepy now so I'm going to go to bed. The top is from H&M and the sports bra is from Primark (they actually have surprisingly good sports bras even though they are really small - I think I should've had the 38 and not 36...). Gosh, when I'm looking at this selfie I really start to miss my eyelash extensions.

We just got back from the sushi place and we're both extremely full! We had dinner at Iki sushi that I wrote about in a previous post and it was really good and nicely plated. Other than that, I've been to school today. Afterwards we went to my Grandparents' place and had a cup of tea and a chat and then we went back to my apartment. Since we got back to Copenhagen last night and I brought a bunch of stuff like new plants and whatnot, I had to do a bit of cleaning, studying and then we watched some TV and went to the gym (leg day). Now, we're going to get in our pyjamas and watch some more "The Killing" before going to sleep. It's super exciting but I'm getting up early tomorrow so we have to go to bed pretty soon.

My boyfriend's semester unfortunately starts with really bad timing. His birthday is next week and he's leaving this week. Anyway, I celebrated him a bit this Sunday and I just booked dinner for us the night before he leaves. We're having sushi in a place I've never tried before but had recommended. Luckily the weather was quite nice so we could sit in my garden and have some key lime pie that I baked and lemonade from Aarstiderne. The key lime pie was actually really good but we were pretty full after lunch and soft ice. We had such a good day yesterday; lunch at Holy Smoke, ice cream outside Sofiero, a long walk admiring the rhododendrons in Sofiero and then we had some cake at my place. This Monday morning, which is a day off in Denmark and Sweden, I'm fixing lots of stuff and my Mum and I made really exciting plans that you'll hopefully soon see on my blog!

It was sunny today so we decided to go on a little trip out and about. We drove to Holy Smoke because they opened only two days ago. We shared their pulled pork and brisket (the brisket has been in the smoker for 14 hours and it literally melts in your mouth - to die for)! It's really true to concept and cozy - particularly when the weather is nice because you can hangout by the fire and grill marshmallows after lunch or dinner. However, my Burberry Paddington coat and pashmina shawl really smelled smoky. Anyway, we had a great time. Perfect Sunday hangout place!

Happy Easter! I'm actually just relaxing at home this weekend because I needed to take a few days off. So what I've been doing is pretty much going for long walks and tomorrow we're going to go on a small trip. Today I've baked lots of stuff too and afterwards my boyfriend picked me up to go shopping (he got three pairs of jeans and I was a little scared that he had a silent stroke or something) and when we drove home, it was snowing like crazy! It's April and I cannot tolerate snow at this point. I mean it was so warm and spring-y a couple of weeks ago and now it's cold, raining and snowing... We had dinner at my place, watched "The Killing" and ate the Pavlova I baked today. Now I'm super tired so we're going to bed.

Today I've been to Garage with my BFF and her dog Nelson to celebrate the first day of my easter vacay (which is barely existent). We had the world's most scrumptious hamburgers before going for a walk. Unfortunately, it was really cold so we went home almost immediately. And at home, the weather was a lot better so my Mum and I walked down to Holy Greens to get a salad for dinner. Now I've just studied for a short while and I'm going to watch some tv and relax. Do you have any plans for easter? I plan on baking some cakes tomorrow - perhaps key lime pie and pavlovas? And I'm doing a bit of gardening for my new apartment too.

A few pics form our lunch at Café Norden yesterday. It really is one of my fave places (perhaps because of the Scandinavian vibe) and it was such a long time ago since I was there. I tried their delicious seasonal lumpfish roe dish that I've never tried before because I haven't been there in April. I adore the ceiling ornament and the interior. Too bad it's always super busy! Sunnies from Fendi, earrings from Dior and shirt from Ralph Lauren.

We went to the current mandatory picture place in Copenhagen - Bispebjerg Cemetery. There is a cherry blossom avenue in bloom and people are crazy about it, so obviously I had to visit too. And I must admit that it was quite beautiful and definitely the perfect outfit picture background even though there were so many people there making it difficult to get a people-less and nice shot. Anyway, it was worth a visit and really beautiful. For outfit details, see below.
Feather Coat: Furst.
Shirt: Ralph Lauren.
Sneakers: New Balance.

Hey lovelies! I hope you've had a nice weekend too. I had an amazing weekend and I can't believe how nice the weather was yesterday! So sunny and hot! This is what I wore for a walk down at Kastellet. I adore my Club Petanque sweatshirt and astronaut ice cream and Dior sunnies. I'm off to school soon so I better get ready for that.

I bought these ranunculus a while ago but they still look really cute (I think I got them like 14 days ago!?). This is a little corner of my apartment - the dining space. I bought the Kartell Louis Ghost Chairs designed by Phillippe Starck and the Bourgie Table lamp and I'm so happy for both. I've been wanting them like forever! I got the over the top gorgeous mahogany table from my Grandparents and I love the mix of antique mahogany and quite modern Louis XV style plexiglass chairs. And I added the sheepskin to make it all a little bit more Scandi. Now I just need to try and get a glass plate for the table made, so I need to man up and call somebody who might be able to do that... Today we haven't really been up to that much; we've studied, went for a long walk in the sunshine, went to the gym, had dinner and I just tried out my Dior Hydra Life products after the shower! They were so comfortable, luxe and my skin looks really pretty now.

I woke up pretty late today because last night was really fun! So today I've spent some quality time with my boyfriend. We studied a bit in the morning and then I went to yoga. I was quite worried I couldn't go because of my hand but it wasn't as tough as it usually is (thank God). Then my boyfriend and I went for a walk and got him some new gym stuff before grocery shopping and heading back home and making yummy dinner. Right now, we've just gotten back from Helium, which is my favourite cocktail lounge in Copenhagen. I've been wanting to show it to my boyfriend for a while now but we've had other plans almost all Fridays and Saturdays. So now we finally went there and it was lovely as usual - we had the classic pisco sour and a "Rye & Pear" whiskey cocktail, that was quite nice and grown up candy-ish. Now we're watching a series before going to bed pretty early.

It's Friday and I'm definitely feeling the Friday/weekend vibes! I'm going to a friend's birthday in a little while and then we're going to some after (med) school thing, which will be fun too. It was ages since I last went! Today I've been to school for a little while and then I ran some errands (I had to get some special band aids from the pharmacy because I accidentally cut my hand - new knife and an avocado in hand - not a good combo)... Anyway, now I'm dressed, hair and makeup is ready and I'm almost good to go! My boyfriend is coming later tonight and he might join the after work thing. I wish you all an amazing weekend! By the way, the lipstick is YSL coral extreme and the dress is from Mango.

If you haven't been to the Normann flagship on Østerbrogade in Copenhagen, I definitely recommend it! It's such a cute/industrial little universe (with really good photo ops because of all the different rooms and wall textures). They sell lots of pretty things too - like these cool pink velvet chairs, red throw and a cognac coloured office chair. I went there this weekend when I also got myself a clear pink Lyngby vase (a Danish classic), but not in that store though. Now I'm heading home from school, baking some seed crisp bread and having dinner.

Hi lovelies! I only had one hour of school today, so right after I went home and watched an episode of "Big Little Lies" and then my boyfriend and I went to have lunch in Apollo Kantine. We had a veggie lasagna with a little beet salad and bread. It was super, super cheap and really good (and way too much food for me). It's located in "Charlottenborg Kunsthal", so the crowd was quite hip and artsy. Afterwards, my boyfriend and I continued our walk before going to the gym (leg day). I'm just about to study and after that, we're making tacos and watching some more episodes.

My boyfriend and I just got back from the gym and other than that I've been to school most of the day. Tonight we're going to the cinema to watch a movie. I'm pretty sure that it will not be as good as Beauty & The Beast that my Mum and I went to watch this weekend... That was when these outfit pics are from too. See details below.
Leather Jacket: Calvin Klein Jeans.
Bag: Zadig & Voltaire.
Chelsea Boots: Wonders.

Today we went to have lunch with my Grandparents, so we spent most of the day there. We had a wonderful lunch with asparagus, salmon, lumpfish roe and shrimps! It's the first time this year I had shrimps and they were so good! Love, love, love seafood! I forgot to take pics though because I was deep into eating mode. Later we're going to get some pizza for dinner and go for a walk. Altogether, a pretty relaxed Sunday.

Just checking in - I'm so sleepy and full! We just had some sushi after watching Beauty & The Beast, which was pretty good. I would have preferred if the Beast and Gaston had ben more handsome though... We watched it in one of my favourite cinemas in Copenhagen - Palads, which is a huge colourful "palace". I've watched most Disney movies there as a child, so that's why I love it. Other than that, I bought a new vase today that I'll show you later and I went to yoga, which was really tough. I think I fell asleep afterwards during the meditation time... We also went for a walk in the stunning Copenhagen weather! It has almost been summery today so I though I'd take my New Balance sneaks for 1st of April spin. Well, now I'm going to watch some Dexter before I roll to bed. For outfit details, please see below.
Leather Jacket: Calvin Klein Jeans.
Bag: Zadig & Voltaire.
Sneakers: New Balance.

Here's the latest addition to my skincare routine! I'm really excited about them but I haven't tried them yet. The Dior Hydra Life collection is pretty new and I adore the packaging! So cute, simple and fresh! The Pink Clay Mask smells heavenly and the colour is so cute! I'm really excited about trying the Time To Glow Ultra Fine Exfoliating Powder that you mix with water before exfoliating too. I also got a free gift in Åhlens; the pretty little pink cosmetic bag but I'll show you that in another post. Well, I just wanted to check in and show you these goodies. I've been to school most of the day, then I went for a walk and made my Mum and I a green pea soup that was really nice. It's been lovely weather in Copenhagen today by the way - summery really. So I hope the weekend weather will be as fab as today!
