I think most girls and women have a sort of signature scent that they always use. Mine is Burberry London, which is quite feminine, subtle and sophisticated, in my opinion. It smells like clementine, honeysuckle, English garden roses (how fitting), tiare flower, jasmine, peony, veil of musks, Indian sandalwood and patchouli. I always buy it in the Covent Garden Burberry Beauty Store, because they wrap it up fabulously and they also give you little testers, which I think is quite a nice gesture. I took this picture by a flower shop not too far away from the Vera Wang wedding store in London (which was totally gorgeous, by the way).

We went to London one day and had lunch at my favourite restaurants; Le Pain Quotidien. I had an avocado sandwich and we both had lemonades - raspberry and lemon lemonades and they were really refreshing and sour. I'm wearing a Marabou feather jacket, Tom Ford sunnies, my beloved red Balenciaga bracelet and of course, my signature coral lipstick from Yves Saint Laurent.

Here's a little sneak peak from the fitting rooms in Ralph Lauren. I've been meaning to get a thick and classic cotton shirt in the Oxford fit for a while now because they really makes an outfit crisp and clean (particularly the white one). Luckily, they had one white XS left in the store because the size difference is quite large - I really looked like Seinfeild in "The Puffy Shirt" in size S... I also got a light blue one and I really can't wait to wear them with dark blue denim pants, over a bikini for the beach and with lots of fine stacked gold jewellery, of course.

Oh Gosh I'm getting a huge shopping craving while watching these photographs from my little London trip! Anyway, we went shopping just outside of Oxford, in Bicester, which is a cute little outlet village. These pictures are from the beginning of the Bicester day. I also got something in Burberry for my boyfriend's birthday gift, unfortunately I didn't find anything that I wanted this time but I'm kind of planning to get a jacket if I go to Oxford next autumn (which I hopefully will!). At this point I had gotten two thick classic shirts in Ralph Laurent and my gorgeous Gucci wallet (which kind of matched my outfit).

My boyfriend and I didn't spend our birthdays together this year, so we thought we'd just get each other presents when I got to England right between our birthdays. He's exactly one month older than I am (which means that the date this post was published is actually his birthday and it was two weeks more until I discovered this little beauty - so Happy Birthday my love!). I was looking for a graduation present for my little sister when I stumbled upon this wallet. It's perfect in size (a bit smaller than the standard wallet) and has a smart organization inside. And the colour and overall minimalism is just to die for. Thanks Sweetheart, I really adore it! I'm wearing mu faux fur from Ilse Jacobsen and nail laquer from Yves Saint Laurent in shade "58 Nuit Blanche". P.S. Have you seen the nail laquer of the season from YSL? It's called "Savage Rose" and looks a lot like this one (except it's pink) and I think it would go perfectly with this wallet.

I arrived in Oxford late in the evening because my flight was delayed due to a "technical error", which sounds quite frightening to me! Luckily, we got to fly with another airplane. Anyway, my boyfriend picked me up at the bus stop and then we dropped off my bag and went to get some pizza and Pan di Stelle (my absolute favourite cookie from Italy, which is quite difficult to locate outside of Italy) at a quite little delicacies store. Then we just relaxed, watched some series and went to bed quite early because I was still very tired from all the exams. They are not over yet though, but I figured I needed a break in wonderful England.

Right before heading to the airport, my friend and I went to Laundromat to each some early lunch in between classes. I really like Laundromat's American style and the pancakes were really good. I really want to go there and have French fries one day and it'll probably be quite soon since I'm basically going to University right next to it.

The dates do not really fit but since I did nothing but study at least a month or so before my exams, I figured that it'd be better if I filled in the gaps and posted all my hundreds of pictures from England since it'll be quite difficult fitting those into a period from the 12th of May to the 16th of May. After our exam (the 10th of May), my studying partner and I went to celebrate at Musling in Copenhagen. I had Lumpfish roe with an egg emulsion, moules and a lovely rhubarb cocktail. Then we headed to the party at the University where we met up with some people from our class and it was really lots of fun.

We went out to lunch to celebrate my Mum's (belated) Birthday with my Grandmother and it was super delicious as always! I had the moules (as always) and they were as terrific as they usually are. The French fries are super good too and I consider myself a bit of a French Fry Feinschmecker! I'm wearing my By Malene Birger hat and a black finely knitted dress from Soaked In Luxury.

Anemone season is a bit early this year because southern Scandinavia has actually been surprisingly warm. When I wake up in the morning, the view is stunning because the forrest floor is literally covered with green leaves and little white flowers. I really love Anemones and that's also the kind of flower I'm named after. They are so beautiful and fragile.

My BFF and I met for breakfast at Étoile, which was really nice. Étoile is quite cozy and the breakfast and juice is really good! Now I'm going to study! If you haven't noticed, I'm blogging backwards because of course I didn't do all of these fun things right before my exam. I just wanted to sort of fill in the gaps for you all, so stay tuned! There are so many posts coming up!

Yup, that's me - the turtle saviour! While on a little relaxing evening walk I spotted this little cute turtle in a pond (where it's definitely not supposed to be) and that started a small rescue mission. I can't believe anybody would actually dump their pet turtle in a pond where it has no chance of survival whatsoever! Luckily we succeeded and the turtle is safe and sound!

This is probably the busiest Spring I've ever experienced! I'm taking an evening course in which I also have an exam. I have lots of stuff to do and study for University. And I have lots of Birthdays and my sister's graduation coming up! Here I am, enjoying some pre exam food at Møller. I had Jerusalem artichokes and some sour dough bread with whipped butter and freshly pressed orange juice. Cheers to you!

My spring fitness plans are not going that great but here are a couple of pics from when my boyfriend and I went to Skodsborg to work out (and go to the spa). The fitness centre was really nice, light, modern and luxurious and if I were living closer to Skodsborg, I'd definitely become a member! I love going working out in the evening, after a busy day, or to start the day with a wakeup workout. I'm super busy at the moment with studying for two major exams and still going to evening classes.

Here are some pretty little gems I bought not too long ago... I went to Maanesten and they had a sale, so I decided to treat myself to some jewellery that I've had my eyes on for a while. I got a silver and a gold ring with a topaz, they're super pretty and simple and a perfect detail for casual spring outfits. I got matching gold and topaz earrings too. And then I got my favourites - the little horns with a pink pearls. I love the combination of the raw horn shape and the prettier gold and pearl. I've worn everything multiple times since then and I can even sleep with the horn earrings, which is a major plus.

Hey pretty people! I'm sorry for not blogging in a while but I've been super busy with my evening classes plus a very important exam I just had... I am in London at the moment, but I'll blog my way forwards to get my blog up to date again! I hope you'll stay tuned! Pics are by Damien Hirst at Arken. I have a slight penchant for Medicine-related art.

It's Monday again (unfortunately, I would have liked the weekend to be just a bit longer). I've been to school almost all day but tonight, my boyfriend and I will probably go to Rungsted Harbour to have some dinner in the beautiful and quite warm sunny spring weather. Here's a picture of my new Superstar sneakers from Adidas. Since I'll only wear them indoors at work, I'm hoping that they will keep their "new sneakers" aura! I also got a thing for Persian rugs, they are just so beautiful and decorative.

I really enjoy going to different kinds of horse races and I've been watching harness racing several times. It's quite cozy to watch the horses trot (or gallop - even though that might be a bit too scary for me - two of the riders fell off their horses last time I watched) and bet a bit on the races if the weather is nice. And it was pretty nice today when my boyfriend and I went to watch harness racing at Lunden in Charlottenlund. I almost won all the money I played for back (I'm definitely no expert haha). Lunden celebrated their 125th birthday today so they sold some pretty delicious fish and chips. The horses were so stunning, I find horses such impressive creatures... Anyway, now we've just gotten back home and we'll start cooking dinner together soon.

It's weekend and that calls for a slightly more luxurious breakfast than I usually eat... My boyfriend made me pancakes and with that we had strawberries, coconut, blueberries and pomegranate, juice and tea. It's a bit grey outside today but our only plan (except studying, which is always on the "To Do List"...) is buying a pair of new work sneakers for me, so we'll probably be going to Jægersborg Allé in the afternoon. I've spotted a pair of completely white Adidas Superstar Originals in one of the windows... By the way, my muscles are super sore after being a little to optimistic with the training yesterday.

My boyfriend and I had the coziest day at Kurhotel Skodsborg today. He met me in Hellerup after University and then we drove to Skodsborg to enjoy a spa day. We started with some cardio and strength exercises in the fitness centre (it was gorgeous and I'll post more about it later) and that went quite well (turned out we worked out a little too hard because we were semi-immobile the rest of the weekend)... We also went for some massage and swimming in the Hydrospa pool, which was warm and lovely. The outdoor jacuzzi was pretty nice too. There are also lots of different smaller spa rooms; salt cave, saunas, steam bath (a favourite of mine), foot baths and some special rooms with multiple sense experiences (a walk in ice cold water accompanied by ice cold shower drizzle and foot baths, light and sound experiences etc.). There is one long pool for swimming too but we didn't use it, we preferred the warmer Hydrospa with different massage areas... I have never been to the spa in Skodsborg before even though I live quite close to it but I'm definitely going back! The spa in Skodsborg is very minimalistic, white and modern so it's perfect for relaxing and unwinding after a busy week!
