Barcelona - part 2

Cheers Rikke!

Mmm... Sangria.

My beautiful sister, Jannie.

Den første aften i Barcelona var min søster og jeg blot ude at spise og gå en tur, da vi først ankom til vores hostel omkring kl. 20. Vi spiste på en restaurant lige ved Sagrada Familia og fik turens første Sangria. Jeg kan ellers ikke lide rødvin, men nøj, hvor jeg faldt for Sangria! Mine outfitbilleder er taget op ad muren til Sagrada Familia, hvor vi boede lige i nærheden.

On our first night in Barcelona my sister and I just went out to dinner and for a walk, as we arrived at our hostel quite late. We ate at a restaurant right across from Sagrada Familia and had our first Sangria of the trip. I usually don't like red wine, but I fell in love with Sangria. My outfit pics are taken up against one of the walls of Sagrada Familia, we stayed not far from there.

Så er jeg hjemme fra Barcelona! Det var en virkelig fantastisk tur, ikke mindst takket være min dejlige søster. Jeg er ked af at jeg ikke fik blogget dernede, men det var skønt at holde ferie- og nu har jeg en masse outfits og indlæg til jer. Vi starter med, hvad jeg havde på under selve flyrejsen. Jeg hader at flyve og jeg hader, hvor lidt plads der er på flyet. Min røv kan lige netop være i flysædet, thank God, men ih hvor er det altså trangt! Nå, men derfor kan jeg altså godt lide at have behageligt tøj på til turen. Og det må man sige at jeg havde, selvom det heller ikke ligefrem er sweats. Min søster og jeg har det med at tage billeder af- og posere foran reklamer, fjollede figurer og lignende, hvilket forklarer de to billeder her. Det første er en reklame for Det Kongelige Teater (Københavns Lufthavn) og det andet er en reklame for Camel-cigaretter (München Lufthavn). I morgen får I at se, hvad jeg havde på om aftenen den første dag. Jeg håber at I har haft en god uge, jeg har savnet jer!

I'm home from Barcelona! It was an amazing trip, also thanks to my fantastic sister. I'm sorry I didn't blog, but I really enjoyed my time off- and now I have lots of outfits and posts for you. Starting with what I wore the day of the trip. I hate flying- and I hate how little room there is on the plane. My ass just fit in the seats, thank God, but it's so uncomfortable! That's one of the reasons I like to dress casual and comfy while traveling. Without wearing sweats that is. My sister and I have this thing about taking pictures of- and in front of- commercials or funny stuff, which explains these two pics. The first one is a commercial for the Royal Danish Theatre (Copenhagen Airport) and the second one is a commercial for Camel cigarettes (Munich Airport). Tomorrow I'll show you what I wore on the first night. I hope you've had a great week, I've missed you!

You may not be a star but you need not be a cloud



"A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed...It feels an impulsion...this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons."

Nu sidder jeg forhåbentlig i Barcelona med en lækker drink og ømme fødder efter shopping hele dagen, men indlægget her er planlagt hjemmefra. Billederne er fra da jeg var i sommerhus med pigerne sidste weekend. Endnu engang er fotografen min veninde, Margit. Det var en fantastisk solnedgang og et meget smukt lys. 

Hopefully I'm sitting with a cool drink and sore feet after a whole day of shopping in Barcelona as you read this- the post has been planned ahead. The pictures are from my weekend with the girls and the photographer is once again my friend Margit. We had a beautiful sunset and amazing light.

Barcelona!


Så tager jeg til Barcelona med min søster i en uge! Jeg ved ikke, om jeg får blogget så meget, men det ser ud til at der er internet på vores hostel, så jeg vil prøve. Men jeg kommer nok lidt bagud med at besvare kommentarer. Jeg har for en sikkerheds skyld programmeret et enkelt indlæg til jer og jeg lover at I senest får masser af outfits og billeder når jeg kommer hjem igen. Ha' en skøn uge!

I'm off to Barcelona with my sister for a week! I'm not sure if I'll be able to blog, but it looks like there's internet in our hostel, so I'll try. I might fall a bit behind with replying to comments though. Just in case, I've planned a post for you and I promise that you'll see lots of outfits and pics from my trip when I get home. Have a great week!

Så er jeg hjemme efter en forlænget weekend i sommerhus sammen med min søster og nogle af mine bedste veninder. Det var virkelig hyggeligt! Vi fik drukket en masse drinks, spillet absurd meget Tegn & Gæt, slappet af, slikket den smule sol der var lørdag og var i vandet. Det var en kold fornøjelse, men jeg kom alligevel i to gange! Min veninde Margit og jeg gik en tur i sommerhusområdet og fandt denne perle af en location. Det var simpelthen den fineste have, så det er hende der har taget- og redigeret billederne til dagens indlæg (tusind tak, søde!). Nu vil jeg glæde mig til noget varmere himmelstrøg- på torsdag tager jeg nemlig til Barcelona med min søster. Hvis der er nogen derude der ligger inde med tips til seværdigheder, restauranter og butikker, så smid endelig en kommentar!

I'm back after a long weekend in my parents' summerhouse with my sister and some of my besties. It was so much fun! We had a lot of drinks, played boardgames, relaxed, tanned a little and went for a swim. The water in Denmark is still very cold, but I went in twice! My friend Margit and I went for a walk and found this beautiful garden- a perfect location for a small photoshoot. Margit shot and edited these pictures (thanks sweetie!). Now I'm looking forward to warmer weather and sunshine, as I'm going to Barcelona with my sister on Thursday. If any of you have some advice on shopping, sightseeing and dining, please leave a comment!

Cranberry Tuesday

Tæt på 200 faste læsere. Wow! Det kræver et halvfjollet taksigelsesbillede.
Close to 200 followers. Wow! That calls for a silly thank-you-picture.



I dag har jeg bare været på arbejde. Der er rimelig varmt derinde, så derfor har jeg ofte shorts på. Jeg håber ikke at I er trætte af at se mig i dem, men de er bare hurtigt blevet mine yndlings. Blusen er ny, megabehagelig og lidt oversize. Den er desuden i farven "Cranberry" som er den nye farve i Zizzi for tiden. Men den er også ret fin, synes jeg.

Today I've just been at work. It's really hot in there these days, which is why I often wear shorts. I hope you're not getting sick of seeing me in them, but they've quickly become a favourite of mine. The shirt is new, really comfortable and a bit oversize. The colour is called "Cranberry" and is the new main colour in our store. It's quite lovely, if you ask me.

Autumn dreaming

Sikke en afslappet søndag jeg har haft! Jeg må indrømme, at jeg slet ikke har været udenfor en dør. Jeg arbejder rigtig meget for tiden og da min ryg (stadig) driller en lille smule, bruger jeg meget tid på langs når jeg er hjemme. Det bliver derfor til en masse film, serier og online browsing. Jeg er begyndt at glæde mig til sensommer- og efterårsgarderoben, som (forhåbentlig) kommer til at bestå af farverne rust, mursten, orange, brun, sennep, denimblå, vinrød og bordeaux. Blandet med en masse mønstre, prints og klassiske sorte og hvide ting. De trends jeg hælder mest til er 70'er, western og colourblocking. Men det kan jo nå at ændre sig endnu! Jeg er meget nem at påvirke, så hvis der lige pludselig opstår en trend eller en hype omkring noget, må jeg indrømme at jeg ikke skal overtales meget for at hoppe med ombord. Men jeg synes dog, at jeg stadig formår at bevare en forholdsvis personlig stil. Om ikke andet i min måde at style tøjet og sætte tingene sammen på. Jeg har lavet et par collager i dag, for at vise noget af det jeg godt kunne tænke mig indfandt sig i min garderobe på magisk vis. Er I begyndt at tænke på efterårsgarderoben?

What a relaxing Sunday I've had. I have to admit that I haven't been outside at all today. I work a lot at the moment, so when I'm home, I spend a lot of time just watching movies, series and browsing the internet. I'm starting to look forward to my late summer and fall wardrobe. Hopefully it'll consist of the colours rust, brick, orange, brown, mustard, denim blue, wine and bordeaux. Mixed with patterns, prints and classic white and black items. The trends I'm most into are 70's, western and colourblocking. But who knows, that might all change. I have to admit, I'm easy to convince of a new trend or hype. I don't think I lose my own identity and style in it however, it's all about how you style and match the items. I've made a few collages today, to show what I wouldn't mind magically appearing in my closet. Have you started thinking about your wardrobe for fall?

Photoshoot- sneak peek


I dag havde jeg et lille photoshoot med den søde og utrolig dygtige Mathilde. Vi tog billeder i Amaliehaven og  nede omkring havnen i nærheden. Det var min veninde Nina, som kender Mathilde, der havde hooked mig op. Jeg havde 6 outfits med og vi tog også close-up's. Det var en supersjov dag og spændende at prøve. Jeg er meget stolt af, hvor meget jeg efterhånden hviler i mig selv og hvad jeg tør kaste mig ud i. At klæde om i al offentlighed og næsten på åben gade, det havde jeg ikke kunne for bare et halvt år siden. I dag var jeg ligeglad. Jeg er spændt på at se resultatet! Her har Nina foreviget Mathilde og jeg imens vi var igang. Tjek lige Mathildes billeder i øvrigt, hun er fantastisk!

Today I had a small photoshoot with the sweet and incredibly talented Mathilde. We took pictures at a garden near the Palace and at the harbour nearby. It was my friend Nina, who knows Mathilde, that hooked me up. I had brought 6 outfits and we also did some close-up's. It was so much fun and very exciting. I'm so proud of, how far I've come with accepting myself and the things I dare to try. Undressing and changing in full public is not something I could have done just 6 months ago. Today I didn't care. I'm excited to see the result. Nina took this picture of Mathilde and I while we were shooting. Make sure to check out Mathilde's work, she's great!

6 Take: Celebrity Style

Så er det atter blevet tid til et indlæg, som en del af et samarbejde mellem mig og to andre bloggere. Bortset fra at vores lille gruppe nu er vokset til hele 6 personer! Byd velkommen til Jessica fra Chic in every City, Yoli fra Diva in deep thought og Sarah fra Queen sized flava made in Montreal. De har tilsluttet sig Jess fra Too many Sequins, Karen fra Curvy Canadian og så mig. I denne måned har vi valgt temaet "Celebrity Style". Vi skulle altså vælge en kendis, eller fortolke temaet. Jeg har altid elsket Olsen-tvillingerne og deres hobo-chic-stil, så jeg satte mig for, at kopiere et par af deres outfits, men selvfølgelig gøre det lidt mere plus-size venligt. Jeg lader mig gerne inspirere af kendte, men ellers kopierer jeg sjældent et helt outfit eller en bestemt stil. Jeg henter inspiration mange steder fra og ofte ender mine outfits som en blanding mellem alle mine daglige indtryk. Og derudover klæder jeg mig altid efter humør. Men jeg synes faktisk at jeg er fint kompatibel med tvillingernes stil, da jeg elsker at klæde mig casualt til hverdag og bare kunne smide noget på om morgenen, men til fest gøre lidt mere ud af det. Tilsat røde læber og lækkert hår, kan det alligevel aldrig gå helt galt. Jeg har også leget lidt med Asos Fashionfinder, hvor jeg har lavet nogle collager som inspiration til, hvordan I selv kunne skabe look'et. Jeg håber at I kan lide dette indlæg, jeg havde det i hvert fald sjovt da jeg tog billederne og følte lidt, at jeg legede "klæde-ud". Husk også at kigge forbi de andre skønne damer!

It's time for another three take, except that now or little group has grown to six! Please welcome Jessica from Chic in every City, Yoli from Diva in deep thought and Sarah from Queen sized flava made in Montreal, who will be joining Jess from Too many Sequins, Karen from Curvy Canadian and I in this six take from now on. This months theme is "Celebrity Style", meaning we each picked a celeb or interpreted the theme. I've always loved the Olsen twins and their hobo-chic style, so I decided to try and copy some of their outfits, but obviously making them a bit more plus-size friendly. I'm always inspired by celebrity style, but very rarely copy an entire outfit or style. I get my inspiration from many different places and my outfits are often a mix between my inputs and experiences on a daily basis. Also, I always dress according to my mood! But I actually think I'm quite compatible with the twins' style, as I like dressing casual and just throwing something together in the mornings, but love dressing up for going out. You can also never go wrong with great hair and red lips! I've been playing with Asos Fashionfinder, where I've done some collages as an inspiration to how you could re-create the look yourself. I hope you like this post, I sure had fun taking the pics and playing dress-up! Make sure to check out the other fab ladies mentioned above!


Mary-Kate Olsen
MK er vist den lidt mere edgy af tvillingerne. Hun leger altid med sin stil og er god til at bruge lidt specielle accessories. Ligesom sin søster elsker hun kæmpestore solbriller, langt bølget hår, smokey eyes og rød læbestift. Da de er så små går de også begge i tårnhøje hæle meget af tiden. For at få det lidt rodede, tilfældige hår, anbefaler jeg en saltvandsspray og fletninger over natten. Hvis man ikke er ligeså doven som jeg, kan et krøllejern også gøre det. Sørg for at tvære dine smokey eyes godt ud, så det ikke ser for perfekt ud!

MK seems to be the edgy one of the twins, always playing with her style and adding quirky accessories to her outfits. Like Ashley, she loves huge shades, long luscious hair, smokey eyes and red lipstick. Being tiny also often means sky high heels! To get that devil-may-care hair, I recommend a salt water spray and braiding your hair over night. A curling iron will also do, if you're not as lazy as me. Make sure to smudge the smokey eyes real good, so they don't seem too polished!


- in all fairness, if I were going out in this outfit, I'd probably put on a pair of tights or capri leggings.

Ashley Olsen
Ashley er lidt mere piget end MK, selvom det billede jeg har valgt af hende er ret rock'et. Hun er hamrende god til oversize tasker og det skaber en fed kontrast, da hun er så lille. Hun har desuden ofte smukt opsat hår og har, ligesom MK, et godt øje for detaljer. 

Ashley is more of a girly-girl than MK, even though the outfit I chose is quite rock'n'roll inspired. She does oversize bags like no one else, and being tiny it adds a huge contrast, which I think is pretty cool. She does up-do's very well and like MK has a great sense for details.

Ladies Night

I går kom to af mine gode veninder hjem til mig, til lidt mad, hygge og drinks. Det blev så til rimelig mange drinks, en god vandpibe, kortspil og ufattelig mange Jägerbombs. Faktisk kom vi først i byen kl. 2.45! Det var første gang pigerne mødte hinanden, men der var bare øjeblikkelig kemi. Jeg elsker når veninder man har forskellige steder fra, bare falder i hak. Vi endte med at have en kanonhyggelig og meget våd aften. Bogstaveligt talt. Jeg har dog sparet jer for de værste billeder, hehe. Jeg gik efter et meget ladylike look, med cool detaljer, så som korsringen og den sølvfarvede læderclutch. Jeg håber at I har haft en god weekend! Og så husk endelig at deltage i min giveaway. Vinderen trækkes i morgen!

Yesterday two of my good friends came over for dinner and drinks. We ended up having a lot of those, smoked a hookah pibe, played drinking games and drank way too many Jägerbombs, too. We ended up not going out until 2.45AM! It was the first time my friends met, but there was instant chemistry. I love it, when friends you have from different places, connect and have a good time together. And we definitely all did! I've spared you the worst pics, but let me tell you it was a great and very wet night! I decided to go for a more ladylike look, but with edgy accessories like the cross ring and the silver leather clutch. I hope you've had a great weekend! Don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already. I'll draw the winner tomorrow!
