The Bachelor

The title of my project, and me with champagne - demonstrating the number 7. No make-up, all smiles! 

Så skete det endelig! I går fik jeg karakter for min BA-opgave, og jeg fik sgu 7! Er sindssygt glad og lettet. Hele processen taget i betragtning, al stress og nervøsitet, tids- og fokusmangel, er det en fantastisk karakter, hvorfor jeg også fejrede med min gode veninde Sarah, der havde været så sød at tage champagne med. Wooohooo! Kom an, kandidat!

It finally happened! Yesterday I got the grade for my Bachelor's Project: a 7 (which is pretty good in Denmark)! I'm so happy and relieved. Considering the entire process, all the stress and the anxiety, the lack of time and focus; I couldn't have wished for more. So I celebrated with my good friend Sarah, who'd been lovely enough to bring champagne. Wooohooo! On to the Master's now!

She's the cutest thing in the World, she's my lil' hipster girl

My mustache brings all the boys to the yard... even though it's crooked.


Jacket: ZJ (Zizzi Jeans) SS11
Sweater: Dorothy Perkins
Shorts: Dorothy Perkins
Tights: Decoy
Socks: H&M
Boots: Creme Fraiche
Necklace: Glitter
Satchel: Pieces

Weird shot with no hair and sweater-pulling... kewl.
It's all a big blur anyways.

Sammen med de fine stiletter modtog jeg i går også denne lækre sweater og de fedeste par højtaljerede shorts. Endnu engang et kup - jeg gav £7,50 for shorts og £11,25 for trøjen. Sidstnævnte er jeg en smule usikker på, da den er lidt kortere end forventet. Men måske kan jeg bruge den til højtaljerede nederdele også? Jeg beklager altså endnu engang kvaliteten af billederne, men det er sandelig ikke nemt at stå herhjemme og balancere med en selvudløser og dårligt lys. I efterspurgte dog flere outfits, så jeg håber at dette kan tilfredsstille jeres sult en smule. Hvad synes I om mit hipster-inspirerede look?

Along with the beautiful heels, I also received this sweater and these highwaisted shorts yesterday. It was another bargain as the shorts went for £7,50 and the sweater for £11,25. I'm not too sure about the sweater though as it is shorter than expected. Maybe I can use it with highwaisted skirts, too? Once again I'm sorry about the picture quality, but it isn't easy using a self-timer in bad lighting. You did however request more outfits, so I hope this will keep you satisfied for a little while. Do you like my hipster-inspired look?

Purple haze all in my eyes


I morges landede disse skønheder hjemme hos mig. De er fra Dorothy Perkins og jeg snuppede dem for sølle  £9,45 (ca. 85 kr.) og sparede derved over £32! Mega-kup. De er helt fantastiske og jeg er allerede dybt forelsket i dem. Nu skal jeg bare finde det perfekte outfit at have dem på til... snarest! Der er flere af jer der efterhånden har spurgt ind til min højde, og jeg kan fortælle jer at jeg er 172 cm. Med hæle som disse når jeg op på imponerende 187 cm. Ret sejt, ikke?

This morning these babies landed on my doorstep. They're from Dorothy Perkins and I snatched them for only £9,45, which means I saved more than £32. What a steal!  They are amazing and I'm already madly in love with them. Now I just have to find the perfect outfit to go with them... sooner rather than later! A couple of you have asked about my height, and I can tell you that I'm 172 cm (5'8''). With heels like these I'm about 187 cm (6'2''). Pretty cool, huh?

Zizzi Webshop


I dag har Zizzi lanceret deres egen webshop, så man nu kan bestille masser af varer hjemme fra sofaen af. Hurra! Endnu er den begrænset til Danmark, men jeg satser stærkt på at det bliver så stor en succes, at de med tiden vil begynde at sende internationalt. Da de har mange af de samme varer som os, og da det er muligt at ombytte varer i de fysiske butikker, er jeg megaspændt på, hvordan det vil påvirke os i den forretning, hvor jeg står. Ligesom i butikkerne er der på webshoppen for tiden masser af fine varer med 70% rabat, så kig endelig forbi her, hvis I er på jagt efter et godt tilbud. Fragten er gratis, hvis man køber for mere end 600 kr., ellers koster den 39 kr. Tror I, at I fremover vil købe noget af jeres Zizzi-tøj på nettet? 

Zizzi launched their own webshop today. So far it only ships to Denmark, but I'm sure it'll be a huge success and that they'll start shipping internationally in time. Would you be interested if they did? I promise to keep you updated on the matter!

I need you back in my life, like yesterday

So happy to be out amongst people again, haha!
I really must figure out how to improve the quality of my photos. 
At least my posing wasn't too bad... ;-)

Close-up's of my accessories and a Jägerbomb, haha!

The lighting was off in these shots, but I really liked them and hence tried to save them in black/white... 
I promise I'm not as vain as I realize this makes me sound, LOL!

Efter en uges sygdom følte jeg mig endelig nogenlunde på toppen i går, så jeg tog hjem til min veninde og fik en lille kæp i øret. Øller og Jägerbombs (i Fisk-glas, haha). Vi vidste ikke om vi måske ville i byen, så jeg dressede mig godt op. Aftenen endte dog med at vi blev hjemme og havde nogle rigtig gode samtaler til kl. 6 om morgenen. Dejligt med venner så gode, at man ikke behøver andet selskab!

After being sick for a week I finally felt well enough to go out last night. I went over to a friend's house and since we didn't know if we were going out, I dressed up a bit. The night ended with us staying in and just having great conversations (and beer and Jägerbombs) until 6AM. It's nice to have friends so good, that you don't need any other company!

Style Envy #1

Jeg ligger syg for tiden, så jeg har ikke været ude af min (efterhånden klamme) pyjamas i et par dage. Men i næste uge lover jeg jer minimum ét OOTD! Indtil da tænkte jeg at jeg ville starte en lille serie, som jeg har tænkt på i noget tid. Jeg vil af og til poste billeder af og links til andre bloggere, hvis stil jeg er vild med og hvis garderobe jeg hungrer efter. Hvad end det er plus-size eller straight-size piger. One love! Vi lægger ud med en fantastisk dame fra Texas: Ms. Vintage Virgin. Jeg er helt tosset med hendes skæve outfits, alle de prints og farver hun smækker sammen, og ikke mindst hendes måde at accessorize på. Her gælder bestemt ikke "less is more" og det er fantastisk! Jeg er også helt vild med hendes ærlige og ligefremme skrivestil og at hun køber det meste af sit tøj i genbrugsbutikker. Hvem der bare kunne finde sådan nogle lækre ting herhjemme (i størrelse stor vel at mærke). Klik forbi hendes blog her - I vil bestemt ikke fortryde det!

I'm sick at the moment and haven't left my pj's in a while, but I promise you at least one OOTD next week! Until then I thought I'd start a series I've been planning to do for a while now. Every once and again I'll post pictures and links to other bloggers, who's style and closet I'd like to snatch. Be it plus-size or straight-size gals. One love! The first one up is a an awesome lady from Texas: Ms. Vintage Virgin. I'm madly in love with her quirky outfits, the prints and colours she throws together, not to mention her ability to accessorize. She definitely doesn't do "less is more" and I love it! I'm also quite taken with her honest and straight forward way of writing and the fact that she gets most her stuff from thrift stores. I wish I could find awesome stuff like that here in Denmark (in plus-sizes that is). Stop by her blog here - you won't regret it!

Carmakoma SS 2012

Så er Carmakomas forårs- og sommerkatalog udkommet, og lad mig bare sig: det er labert! I mine øjne er det deres bedste kollektion til dato og jeg er dybt forelsket i mange af tingene. Her følger nogle af mine favoritter. I kan se hele deres lookbook her. Hvad synes I?

Carmakoma's Spring/Summer lookbook is out and let me just say: it's faboush! I think it's their best collection to date and I'm madly in love with so many of the pieces. Here are some of my favourites. You can see the entire lookbook here. What do you think?


How amazing is that blue colour?! Love it!

This outfit is just genius. I love both the lace blouse and the high waisted skirt. Sexy!

Could you not just see me strutting around NYC for Full Figured Fashion Week in this 
gorgeous summer dress? I sure could!

I love the combination of the long skirt and black pleather jacket. 

Awesome jumpsuit!

Pussybow trench coat anyone? YES!

Line is a rad babe!

Best of 2011 - OOTD edition

Det er sjovt at se tilbage på, hvad man har haft på i løbet af et helt år, og at huske de oplevelser forbundet med tøjet, samt at se, hvordan ens stil udvikler sig. Fra casual, til rocket, pyntet og piget - jeg har prøvet det hele af. Her er et lille resumé af mine egne favoritter fra sidste år!

It's always fun to look back on a year's worth of outfits and remember the good times that came with them, and also see how one's style evolves. From casual, to rock chic, dolled up and girly - I've tried it all. Here's a small selection of my personal favorites from last year!

No more champagne and the fireworks are through


Godt nytår allesammen! Jeg håber at I havde en forrygende god aften i går og kom godt ind i det nye år. Selv var jeg til fest på Vesterbro i et kollektiv, hvor en af mine venner bor. Det var superhyggeligt. Vi var 20 til spisning og efter midnat kom der flere til. Desværre måtte jeg kaste håndklædet i ringen kl. 2, da jeg havde fået rigtig ondt i hovedet og generelt var smadret, da jeg har arbejdet meget. Men det gjorde ikke det store, jeg synes at jeg havde fået dét ud af aftenen, som jeg havde håbet på. I får lige et par billeder fra vores fest, men jeg vil også gerne benytte lejligheden til at takke jer, kære læsere, for et fantastisk år. 2011 har været helt fænomenalt på bloggen og jeg har jer at takke for det. Må 2012 byde på endnu flere fede oplevelser for os alle!

Happy New Year! I hope you had an amazing night and made it safe into the new year. I was at a party with some friends from high school and had a great time. Unfortunately I had to go home with a headache at 2 AM, but I still think the evening was fab. Before I show you some pics from last night, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, my sweet readers, for a fantastic year. 2011 was amazing for my blog, so much happend, and I have you to thank for it. May 2012 have a lot more in store for us all!

Everyone getting ready to jump in to 2012 and sing the national anthem
It's 2012, hooray!
"Act surprised!"
Wishing the staff (and the cakes) at 7-Eleven a happy new year ;-)
