I've been a very good girl this year!

Glædelig bag(h)jul! Jeg håber at I har haft det helt forrygende med jeres kære og fået mange gode gaver. Her er et udpluk af mine! Jeg fik en helt fantastisk gave fra Jessica bag bloggen Too Many Sequins, hele vejen fra Australien. Udover nogle små, nuttede souvenirs indeholdt den en smuk maxikjole, en skøn top, en parfume, en ferskenfarvet lipgloss og en nude læbestift. Er hun ikke bare skøn?! Af familien fik jeg primært praktiske ting, da det altid er dem jeg står og mangler. Jeg har allerede lavet lækre smoothies med blenderen. Nu skal jeg bare have samlet den lampe og indkøbt hylder og gardiner (suk). Tjek også lige den lækre Comwell Spa Serie i kæmpe udgave, samt varmeposen. Jeg sidder pt. med fusserne i det dejligste fodbad og det dufter alt for lækkert! Jeg må have været en god pige i år :-)

I hope you've had an amazing Christmas, filled with love and presents, my dear readers! I got some fantastic gifts this year. Check out a selection above. It includes an amazing gift from the lovely Jessica of Too Many Sequins all the way from Australia. Besides some cute souvenirs I got an exquisite  maxi dress, a delicious top, a perfume, a peach lipgloss and a nude lipstick. Isn't she just the sweetest?! From my family I got mostly practical stuff, because that's what I always end up needing. I've already made some tasty smoothies with the blender. Now I just have to put the lamp together and pick out some shelves and curtains (sigh). Also check out the neat Comwell Spa Series in gigantic sizes and the heating bag. I'm having the most delightful foot bath right now and it smells divine! I must have been a very good girl this year :-)

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!









Her er lidt billeder fra min juleaften sammen med familien og min svogers familie. Det var en skøn aften, som bl.a. bød på gavekort til Ikea, make-up og en blender. I dag har vi været hos farmor til julefrokost og pakkespil - jeg vandt 5 ud af 10 gange!

Jeg vil også gerne benytte lejligheden til at sende jer en lille julehilsen! Tusind, tusind tak fordi I læser med, I er simpelthen de bedste og jeg håber at I nyder højtiden med dem I holder af. Masser af kærlighed til jer 

Here are some pictures from my Christmas Eve last night (in Denmark we celebrate on the 24th). I was with my family and my brother-in-law's family. It was a great night and I got some lovely presents. Today we had lunch at my grandmother's and played bingo. I won 5 out of 10 times!

I'd also like to take the opportunity to send you all a Christmas Message. Thank you so much for following, it means so very much to me and you truly are the best. I hope you're enjoying the Holiday with all your loved ones. Much love to you

There are times in life when, instead of complaining, you do something about your complaints


Leggings: Evans (previous collection)
Wedges: Jette Riis
Ring: Glitter
Headband: H&M
Lipstick: Lord & Berry "Mandarino"
Nailpolish: Essie "Sew Psyched"
Paleness: courtesy of the danish winter!

It's funny how much different lighting can change the colours, huh? 

Dette var gårsdagens outfit. Som I nok kan regne ud er billederne taget ude på læsesalen, hvor jeg stort set bor for tiden. I dag sidder jeg også derude, men håber dog på at kunne arbejde hjemmefra i morgen før den står på læsesal igen mandag, hvor jeg meget gerne skulle lægge allersidste hånd på værket. Jeg håber at I har en lidt mere ophidsende weekend end jeg...!

Kjolen her er i øvrigt endnu en af de ting jeg fik foræret af de søde piger fra 17 Sundays. Den findes i 4 forskellige farver, men jeg faldt pladask for denne blåsorte farve. De kalder den en Beach Dress, men den kan sagtens bruges til kolde dage, som vi jo har mange af i denne tid. Den er af virkelig dejlig kvalitet og så sidder den bare perfekt! Jeg tror aldrig jeg har haft en kjole, som sad så godt og passer perfekt til mine former. Jeg følte mig rigtig godt tilpas i den og det synes jeg også man kan se på billederne. Jeg blev inspireret  til titlen på indlægget, da kjolen hedder "Complaint Department" og det passer ret godt til min nuværende situation. Jeg er så god til at gå og udskyde ting, ikke at kunne overskue dem og få hjertebanken over dem. Og det er jeg ved at være træt af! Jeg har jo hanket op i mig selv og er kommet i gang med opgaven, men jeg har virkelig spildt mange uger på at frygte den. Nu, hvor jeg sidder midt i den, er det slet ikke så slemt. Mit emne er ret spændende og jeg synes at jeg får skrevet nogle gode ting. Typisk mig- sådan går det altid. Derfor bliver et af mine nytårsforsæt helt sikkert, at jeg skal være bedre til at gøre noget ved tingene tidligere, fremfor at brokke mig over dem og udskyde dem til jeg får tårer i øjnene af stress og ikke kan sove om natten. Lesson learned. Måske.

This was yesterday's outfit. As you've probably guessed the pictures are from the library and study hall at Uni. I basically live here these days. I'm here again today, but hopefully I can work from home tomorrow and only be back Monday for the finishing touches of my project. I hope your weekend is somewhat more exciting than mine...!


This dress is another item that the lovely ladies at 17 Sundays sent me. It comes in 4 different colours, but I instantly fell in love with this blueish-black ink colour. They call it a beach dress, but you can most certainly wear it with leggings or tights on cold winter days like now. It's a great quality and the fit is amazing! I seriously don't think I've ever owned a dress that fit me so well and flatters my curves so perfectly. I felt great wearing it, as I'm sure you can tell by the photos. The title was inspired by the dress called "Complaint Department" and it's so fitting for my situation right now. I'm so good at procrastinating and putting off important things until the very last minute, to the point where I have trouble sleeping and my heart won't stop racing. I simply lack the ability to handle a lot of stuff all at once. I'm really sick of it! I'm doing my project now, but I've wasted a lot of weeks dreading it. Writing it now, it's really not bad. It's an interesting subject and I feel like I'm getting some good points across. That's typically me! Getting stuff done quicker and just jumping right in, will definitely be one of my New Year's resolutions, so I hopefully won't have to stress like this again in the future. Lesson learned. Maybe.

Don't spend a lifetime living inside the wonder of what dreams may lay ahead

Lige nu drømmer jeg om dette outfit. Jeg elsker at blande casualt og festligt. Er især helt tosset efter en mørkelilla læbestift for tiden. Men det må vente til januar... suk. Nå, jeg må tilbage til opgaven! xo

Right now I'm dreaming of this outfit. I love mixing casual with chic items. I'm especially lusting after a dark purple lipstick. But that will have to wait until January... sigh. Back to my project now! xo

Then of course, the choice is yours


Eftersom jeg sidder med KÆMPE BA-stress (jeg skal aflevere d. 20.), har jeg ikke så meget tid og overskud til bloggen, sorry. Derfor laver jeg endnu et tilbageblik på nogle outfits fra tidligere på året. Hvilket er jeres favorit og hvorfor? Jeg er altid glad for jeres mening! Det første havde jeg på til koncert her, det andet havde jeg på til X-factor-optagelser her, det tredje er fra en tur i fredagsbaren her og det fjerde var mit outfit til Stella Polaris her.

Since I'm totally stressing over my bachelor's project due the 20th, I haven't got much time or energy for the blog, sorry. That's why I'm having another look back at some of my past outfits this year. Which one's your favourite and why? I love to hear your opinions! I wore the first one going to a concert here, the second was for a recording of X-factor here, the third was my outfit for a night at the bar at uni here and the last one I wore to Stella Polaris here.

Top: ZJ (Zizzi Jeans)
Skirt: H&M
Cardigan: Asos Curve (previous collection)
Belt: Dorothy Perkins
Tights: unknown
Boots: Asos
Scarf: Pieces
Ring: Glitter



Dagens casual outfit, som jeg dog følte mig rigtig godt tilpas i. Undskyld, hvis jeg ser træt ud, men jeg fik kun 4 timers søvn i nat og sad 8 timer ude på læsesalen. Jeg håber at det betyder jeg kan sove tidligt i dag.

My casual OOTD which I felt really comfortable in. I'm sorry if I look tired, but I've only had about 4 hours of sleep and I was at the library studying for 8 hours. I hope that means I get to sleep early today.

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together

Er lige præcis, hvad jeg prøver på for tiden. Den BA tager langsomt livet af mig- jeg har simpelthen ingen motivation. Jeg ved ikke, hvad der er galt, men den skal under alle omstændigheder afleveres om to uger og jeg er mildest talt bange for, at jeg ikke får afleveret et færdigt produkt. Men jeg kæmper og noget der altid får mit humør op er at gøre lidt ud af mig selv. Så jeg fulgte Elizabeth Taylors råd og tilføjede desuden min nye neglelak fra Essie. Jeg er helt vild med den sort-røde farve. Nå, men det blev kun lige til nogle hurtige snapshots fordi jeg skal tilbage til opgaven... håber det er okay. 
Kryds fingre for mig!

Is exactly what I'm trying to do at the moment. That project is slowly killing me- I'm lacking motivation and I don't know what's wrong. It has to be done in two weeks and to say the least, I'm scared I won't hand in a finished product. But I'm fighting and something that always lightens my mood is dressing up. So I took the advice of Elizabeth Taylor and also added my newest nailpolish from Essie. I love the black/red colour. Anyways, just a quick post and a few snapshots because I have to get back to writing... I hope that's okay.
Wish me luck!

When the Lights go out

Jeg er rigtig glad for, hvor positiv respons jeg har fået på fredagens outfit! Men bare for at vise jer, at jeg ikke altid (faktisk sjældent) ser sød og dydig ud på billeder, kommer her snapshots fra selve festen. Grimheds-transformationen er stor! Derudover vil jeg lige annoncere, at jeg har rundet de 300 faste læsere. Yay! Nu mangler jeg bare 28 "likes" på min facebookside, og så er det gavetid for jer.

I'm really thrilled with all the positive response I got on Friday's outfit! But just to show you that I'm not always (rarely actually) looking cute and decent in pictures, here are some snapshots from the party. The transformation is huge! Besides that I'd like to announce that I've hit 300 followers. Yay! Now we only need 28 more "likes" on facebook and then it's giveaway time.

Do I have something in my teeth?

Now that's one crooked 'stache...

I have no words... LOL!

Earrings: Pieces
Steel ring: Glitter
Flower ring: Pilgrim
Clutch: H&M

Not sure what I was doing here... haha.



Nu er jeg endelig kommet mig over tømmermændene efter gårsdagens julefrokost på studiet. Hold nu op, hvor var det en sjov fest! Men puha, jeg skulle aldrig været gået med til at drikke snaps. Hvert år siger jeg til mig selv- og alle omkring mig- at jeg IKKE må få snaps, fordi jeg på ingen måde kan tåle det. Og alligevel løb jeg direkte i fælden. Det hjalp nok heller ikke at det var den billige fra Aldi og at jeg ved siden af drak både fadøl og vodka/juice. Jeg har betalt prisen i dag, tro mig. Nå, men som jeg lovede jer for et par dage siden, kommer her mit outfit! Som nogle af jer gættede, var det den sorte blonde/tyl-kjole fra Asos, som jeg havde kastet min kærlighed på. Det er en størrelse større end jeg normalt bruger, men den passer stort set perfekt. Jeg har erfaringer med, at Asos' størrelser er smallere over brystet end andre. Det eneste minus ved kjolen er, at blondestykket er en smule for langt. Det sidder lidt underligt på mig og bliver ved med at glide op til under brystet, men det er måske bare min mave. Jeg synes dog ikke at det gør så forfærdelig meget igen. Jeg havde det i hvert fald godt i kjolen (selv med bare, vinterblege arme) og fik i det hele taget meget ros for mit outfit. Jeg tror at kjolen ryger på til nytår igen, men så skal jeg dog passe ret meget på ikke at rage alt ned omkring mig med mit poofy tylskørt. Haha! 

Men sig mig, hvad synes I om sættet? Efter min mening må der godt ske lidt, når det er til jul og nytår. Har I fundet jeres jule-/nytårssæt endnu? Husk i øvrigt at smutte forbi de andre søde piger, der tager del i Six Take. Links findes efter den engelske tekst.

I've finally recovered from my massive hangover after yesterday's Christmas Party. Boy, did I have a blast! But I definitely paid the price today... yuck. Anyways, as promised here's my outfit! As some of you guessed I was wearing the black lace and tulle dress from Asos. It's a size bigger than I usually wear, but it fits almost perfectly. Asos tend to run a bit small at the bust, in my opinion and experience. The only downside to the dress is that the top bit is a little long and tends to slide up under my bust, but maybe it's just my belly. I don't think it's that big of a deal though and I felt great in it (even with winter pale arms). I also got a great deal of compliments for my outfit. I think the dress might also be my New Year's dress, but then I have to be careful not to knock everything over with the massive tulle skirt again. Haha!

But what do you think of my outfit? In my opinion Christmas and New Year's always deserves a little extra sparkle. Have you found your perfect Holiday outfit yet? Please remember to stop by the other fabulous ladies participating in the Six Take:

Take your pick


Mens vi venter i spænding på næste nye outfit, tænkte jeg at vi kunne kaste et tilbageblik på nogle af årets forskellige outfits. Jeg har været i gemmerne og fundet disse billeder frem- jeg har godt nok en meget blandet stil, hva'? Jeg kunne virkelig godt tænke mig at høre, hvilket der er jeres yndlings af disse fire og hvorfor? Læg  en kommentar, jeg er meget nysgerrig! 

While we're anxiously awaiting a new OOTD, let's have a look back at some of the past outfits. I've found these pictures and would now like your opinion: Which outfit is your favourite out of these four and why? I really do have a broad taste in fashion, don't I? Please leave a comment, I'm extremely curious!
