studying essentials

IMG_9524IMG_9520These days, I can be found in front on my Mac and my biology book... I have two exams in January that I'm studying for. Some of my studying essentials are shown above; my Moleskine calendar, Burberry watch, Lamy fountain pen, MAC lipstick, Mac and pencil case. I also recently got a new scented candle called "Himalayan Musk", it smells so good! There are also some Oroes in the picture - it doesn't have to be Oreos, but I usually snack a little bit and drink some tea to make the studying cozier. I'm leaving for dinner at my friend's house soon, which will be a nice break from the books.

black silk & wool shorts

IMG_7420After studying most of the morning, I went shopping in town because there is a post Christmas sale and I had a gift certificate that I needed to use. It's nice to get gift certificates, of course, but they stress me a little bit too, because I want to use them before they're not valid anymore. Anyway, I finally found something; a scented candle (that I'll show you tomorrow) and a pair of black silk and wool shorts from Calida. I think they're supposed to be nightwear but I think I'l use them as hotpants or underneath black dresses when it gets hotter outside. We're having dinner soon and then it's back to studying. I really miss having a tan!

balmain hair couture

IMG_9467IMG_9458 More Christmas presents! Among some other gorgeous gifts, I got this wonderful hair perfume by Balmain from my sweet little sister. I've already used it a couple of times and it smells delightful and makes my hair shine and not tangle as much as it usually does... I love that it's called "hair couture" too - very fancy. I'm not feeling particularly fancy at the moment. I got a headache last night and I've been feeling pretty bad most of last night and today... I'm feeling better now after spending all the day eating and watching TV series. I think I'm going to take a bath or a shower, go to bed and then I'm going to study most of tomorrow.

ice skating

12434670_10208156333935868_1072449666_n 2I went ice skating with my boyfriend and some friends today, which was lots of fun. It was such a long time ago! Well, last year I went ice skating in Bangkok but I was wearing a skirt and my legs were bare... So I didn't really want to go too fast. Today went a lot better though!

Hat: Forrest & Bob.
Scarf: Moss Copenhagen.
Shirt: By Malene Birger.

anni lu star jewellery

IMG_9442 IMG_9444 IMG_9448I got some gorgeous jewellery from Anni Lu for Christmas. I got the red bracelet with a star and a tassel and a small Tiger Eye pearl, which is perfect since that is the stone of May, which is my month. I'm planning on wearing it with my Balenciaga bracelet and other red and golden ones. I also got little star earrings, they are going to be my everyday earrings. They are so cute and subtle.

christmas pants

IMG_9502 IMG_9504Merry Christmas! Here's my Christmas outfit this year. It's not exactly glamorous but it's very comfy and I think it's pretty cute. Perfect for the day's Christmas prep! A big plus is that I can eat as much as I want and dance around too without feeling uncomfortable... My Grandparents are coming in the afternoon and then we are celebrating Christmas! We usually have dinner and dessert first, then we dance around the tree and finally we open our presents! I'm so excited for tonight! I hope you all have a wonderful evening!

christmas tree

IMG_9474 IMG_9487The Christmas tree is up and ready! Our Christmas tree is always multicoloured and sort of Disney styled. I can't wait to dance around the tree tomorrow, are you still keeping that tradition? Most of my friends don't do it anymore and I think it's a huge part of Christmas night. Other than decorating the tree, I've been busy all day with preparations, gift wrapping and stuff like that...

cupcakes & winter salad

IMG_7246IMG_7262 IMG_7257I've been in Copenhagen all day today. First I went shopping with my BFF and we also had lunch at The Union Kitchen, which was very good. I ordered a salad, which is always a gamble unless you know that the restaurant is generous with the good stuff in the salad (not the salad itself...), but it was actually very good. Then I met my Mum and sister for cupcakes and tea, some final shopping and then we went to our relatives to have dinner and exchange Christmas gifts. It has been a busy day!

yayoi kusama's yellow room

IMG_9263 IMG_9405 IMG_9267IMG_9408IMG_9351And the yellow pics from the Yayoi Kusama exhibition at Louisiana. Still cool, still crazy... Today we're prepping for Christmas at my house. We're decorating the Christmas tree, which I'm very excited about and I still have some gifts to wrap and cards to write.

Dress: Alexander McQueen.
Watch: Burberry.
Bracelet: Balenciaga.
Chelsea Boots: Wonders.

yayoi kusama's red room

IMG_9293IMG_9236 IMG_9318 IMG_9234Some of the reds from the exhibition... I particularly fancied the red balloon room with white dots. So spooky.
Faux Fur: Faux.
Dress: Alexander McQueen.
Clutch: Zadig & Voltaire.
Chelsea Boots: Wonders.

yayoi kusama at louisiana

IMG_9217 IMG_9395IMG_9219 IMG_9346IMG_9384We just returned from Louisiana where we had late lunch and watched the Yayoi Kusama exhibition. It was really cool and psychedelic art - particularly the dot themed rooms. I really liked the pumpkins too, they were kind of cute. Some of the stuff was a bit scary, actually. I'm wearing my never before used Alexander McQueen dress. I discovered that the only dotted clothes I have is a blue jumpsuit with white dots and a black and white dotted PJ... But I think that the dress matched the colours of the exhibition quite well.

mulled wine time

IMG_7190As some of you might've seen on my Instagram (emmaanemone), I had a small mulled wine get together today. Six friends from Rays (the summer research camp that I went on a couple of years ago) that I still stay in touch with, came for some mulled wine and a game where you sort of snatch presents. We had all sorts of Danish and Swedish Christmas specials such as: lussekatter, æbleskiver with sugar and raspberry marmalade, pebernødder, klejner, vaniljekranse, knäck, julmust and mulled wine, of course.

burberry regent street

IMG_6932 IMG_6924 IMG_6915Good morning guys! Today I'm heading to Elsinore to do some grocery shopping for a mulled wine get together that I'm hosting tomorrow. Here's a throw back to last week when I went to Burberry on Regent Street to buy my beloved red cashmere scarf. I'll have to do a post about it later but I haven't actually worn it yet. While they wrapped it up and I paid for it, we had a glass of champagne each. Loving the Burberry life!

pret a manger & le pain quotidien

IMG_6960 IMG_6699Just a couple of pictures from my absolute favourite places to eat in London. Le Pain Quotidien is a bit more comfortable and homely, so it's a place where you can sit, eat and relax. They have great sandwiches and even lovelier bowls of coffee and cakes. We had a brownie and a pavlova and they were both delicious. Pret A Manger is lovely too, it's faster so it's quite practical for busy (shopping) days in London. They serve natural and healthy food with no additives. I'm particularly a fan of their baguettes, their tuna melt toast and the crayfish and avocado salad. They also have bags of popcorn and smaller treats like that, which is always a win. Now I'm having lunch and then I'm heading for a latte macchiato and chats with my BFF.

december shopping in london

IMG_9212And some of the fancier shopping from London... I bought something from Burberry - can you guess what it is? I wrote about it earlier this year and the packaging is pretty revealing... And I got stuff from Victoria's Secret, of course. This time I actually controlled myself and didn't get every PJ I could get my hands on. And I also got the clutch from Zadig & Voltaire. I left out a lot from this picture because of the season, you know...

radcliffe camera

IMG_8807 IMG_8798IMG_8810 IMG_8796 IMG_8791The last pictures from Oxford are ironically, some of the first we took. We went to the Radcliffe Camera where we had the chance to go all the way up and enjoy the view over Oxford. It was very pretty, as you can see.

pink & lush life

IMG_9206 IMG_9208New stuff from Lush! I got a magic wand bubble bar that makes my whole room smell like candy. I also got a really good dry shampoo that smells super fresh of grape and lime, it's called "No Drought". I wasn't that fond of the REF dry shampoos I had before... I used them up almost immediately and I really don't use that much. Looks like this one from Lush will last a while... Anyway, I also got two dusting powders; silky underwear (jasmine scent) and fairy dust (shimmer and candy floss scent) that I've already used a couple of times.They are quite cool. I think I'll dust my bed with them soon too.

red dress

IMG_8914 IMG_8916 IMG_8917Here are some better pictures of the red dress I wore in a previous post. It's from American Apparel and I'm quiet fond of it. One red dress is a must for blondes. Matching it with fishnet stockings, red lipstick and red nail polish from Yves Saint Laurent.

Jacket: The Kooples.
Dress: American Apparel.
Tights: H&M.
Boots: Notabene.

christmas feeling in oxford

IMG_8787 IMG_8781Just some gorgeous Christmas pics from Oxford. I quite miss the Christmas feeling in England even though there are lots of decorations and stuff here in Scandinavia too, plus, it's a lot colder! I'm going to a Christmas Lunch/Party with the people from my class at University tonight, so that'll be fun.
