15 Random Facts About Me

December is all about hygge and less about work, therefore I wrote 15 random things you (probably) don’t know about me.. Please feel free to add a few random facts about yourself in the comment section, so I don’t feel completely self-absorbed 🙂

..I’m pretty great with Paint and Photoshop. Can’t you tell? Jokes I’m a complete disaster and I’m highly considering taking a Photoshop Course.

..I always get extremely impressed by seeing massive lorries turning in inner city. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a lorry/pollution free city, but God DAMN they’re massive and the men(or women) driving them makes it all look easy peasy.

..I’m not a massive fan of Christmas food, I would quite frankly ratter skip the food and dig straight into the dessert. But I would pick an extra starter over dessert any day!

..I hate being late for appointments, whether it be with friends, doctors etc. I would much rather be an hour early than 5 minutes late. It basically stresses me out.

..If I had to choose, I would pick desert over rain forest… It’s mainly based on the amount of creepy crawlers and other animals. Let’s face it,  I would suck in I’m A Celeb! I’m fine with heights though.

..I’m generally quiet bothered by creepy crawlers. Especially spiders. Last time I saw a spider I got a massive bump on my forehead from running away from it whilst my mum catching it.

..I love the ocean, I pretty much grew up next to it. But you’ll never see me go for a swim in it, because of my fear for sharks, fish and other sea animals (I might have seen to many shark movies).

..I prefer Iced Coffee to hot coffee – but I’m a sucker for Vanilla Soy Latte. I spend way too much money on coffee in general, therefore I’ll follow a fellow bloggers footsteps, Gemma Talbot, and put the money I would normally spend on a cup of coffee, aside and at the end of the year I would have the money for a fancy handbag or nice holiday.

..I absolutely love Mondays. A new start. Every week. How awesome is that ?!

..If I receive a presents a few days before my birthday or Christmas. Then I’ll open it because I’m secretly like a little child who can’t wait.

..I love crime series, real life documentaries about investigations or made up ones. Don’t care, I’m a sucker for that stuff. As well as loving horror movies – I guess I’m thrill seeker and I love a good scare.

..I think it is incredibly uncomfortable to be vacuumed on the skin. Have you tried it?

..I love straws and I drink anything out of straws, if I have one nearby that is. Even for tap water.

..I am a language spinner, which we in Danish call language retard, directly translated haha – I think its quite fitting. It happens that I make up my own words and interpretations.

..I’m annoyingly indecisive when it comes to things, such as shopping and food, but on the other hand, I’m extremely spontaneous when it comes to travel and bigger things, such as moving or phones.

 

 

I’m Looking Forward To # Christmas Edition

I don’t really get in to the Christmas spirit before after my birthday (middle of November) and without sounding like the Grinch I actually get sick and tired of Christmas if it starts to early. This year I decided to look at the Christmas decorations around – which has been up since October (WHAT?!) – as Winter decorations instead. So this year it’s a little different, I’m excited for Christmas and truly do believe it’s a wonderful time of the year –  and I wouldn’t mind the odd Christmas song once in a while 😉

Each year I hope for a white Christmas and in Denmark it can happen, so I keep on hoping but in the mean time, there’s other things to look forward too – to be exact 5 of them:

Spending time with my love ones. Our Christmas is a bit different this year as all of my siblings are scattered by the four winds and won’t be spending Christmas eve together this year. For me Christmas is about spending time with the people you love, that’s what it’s all about. Christmas is a party for the hearts a Danish saying goes and I must admit I agree.

Trying to get rid of that cold with hot chocolate or mulled wine. Trust me, that’s the best way to get rid of that cold at Christmas time + you get to drink the seasons best drinks – Hot Chocolate warms the soul and this is the very best season for it.

Receiving presents and seeing your loved ones face when they unwrap theirs. The holidays shouldn’t be about the presents, but we all secretly love getting them. How can anyone not look forward to unwrapping a gift and being surprised or seeing how happy your loved one looks whilst unwrapping theirs?

Hygge and snuggling up with someone, just because. It’s cold outside, and this is the season to warm up to someone. There is no better time to snuggle up with someone in front of the TV watching Home alone for the 11008242 time, with some hot chocolate.

Visiting Christmas markets. There’s just something magical about going to a Christmas market, the atmosphere is just spot on. My favourite in London is Winter Wonderland, where you proper get into the spirit. I’m dreaming of going to a German Christmas market, although that might have to wait until next year.

Any thing you think is missing from the list ?

Flowers, I love flowers! All sorts, ranging from the ones you find on the site of a country road to the big and beautiful tied bouquets. Which are your favourites? Mine is a beautiful orchid or a sunflower. I think they’re aesthetically pleasing, gives your space a more homey vibe and it feels downright great when someone sends you some. What’s not to like? Flowers for me is a sign of life – remember to enjoy it and take care of it and those precious in your life. Nothing’s more wonderful than fresh flowers and for me it spreads good energy and lifts up my mood and calm me on a busy day while keeping bad thoughts way.

 

Would Love To Wear // Floral Top And Denim Skirt

I’m so loving the sock-fit-boots, which I think would fit any outfit whether it be double denim, cute dress or this this killer outfit. I think the tones in this top is just the perfect match for autumn. Add a touch of red and you have a bold yet very toned down and somehow classy outfit, what do you think?

I hope you had a great weekend and thank you so much for reading!

This week I’m especially grateful for my morning coffee. I’ve decided to change up my routine and get up a little earlier, to sit down and chill with a nice book or magazine and the perfect cup of coffee. It gives me the chance to relax and reflect on the day that’s coming. I’m considering going for a run or go to the gym as well, but one step at the time 🙂

What are you especially grateful for?

 

OOTD: You Can’t Have A Bad Day In Polka Dots

 So Saturday night I was invited to Kiwi&Roos very first Supper Club event at Yurt Cafe London, a beautiful little Oase which has been part of St. Katharine’s Precinct just around the corner from Limehouse Station. I’ll show you more photos from the evening and explain a lot more about it in another blog post.

It was a wonderful evening, the venue and the food was just amazing and so was the company. I decided to go for a comfy yet classy dress, that would hide the food baby I knew I would have after a night with food and drinks a mass! I absolutely love the cut of these kind of dresses, which I honestly think suits any body type. I got mine when I went to Denmark on holiday, but I haven’t yet found it online –  I’m sure it will come though. In the meantime, I found some pretty great alternatives further down.
