Show me your style // Hamza Malik

Another show me your style post up and running!
This time I interviewed my friend and co-worker Hamza Malik.
Hamza is one of the most colorful and bubbly personalities that I’ve ever met, every time I see some kind of silk fabric or a piece of clothing with flowers on, I think of Hamza.
Another thing to say about Hamza is that he has the most beautiful curly hair and quotes Beyonce very often doing the day.
So, if you love colors and beautiful curly hair keep reading and don’t forget to check out his gram game right here.

“Super skinny blue jeans, a yellow hoodie, a pair of black shoes written with ‘left and right’ on the sides and a dark blue coat because it’s freezing outside today”

“The small details! They count the most! It can be from anything like a scarf to socks…”

Two drunk kids painted on their jackets

 

 

 

 

 

So… one night, Johan and I got very drunk and decided to make our very own punk jackets.
The punk/graffiti jacket has been seen at many different kinds of runways lately … especially Balenciaga and Vetements have made this a crystal clear trend… or should I rather say a trashy trend? Nevermind.
We made our own jackets because of 1. we don’t have 1595€ to spend on a denim jacket 2. we are the creative types and 3. we both like red wine.

Fondazione Prada


For about a month ago I found myself to be in Milan so I went for a visit here at Fondazione Prada.
My feelings about the exhibitions are pretty mixed up.
If you are a sucker for modern installations..( or just to want a great Instagram picture), and you find yourself to be around Largo Isarco, 2, 20139 Milano, well then this is the place for you to go.
Many of the exhibitions are sadly not that well described and the museum in itself can be very confusing to navigate in, so make sure you have time to get lost here. But that’s what makes it fun right?
Besides from that, the museum is a magnificent piece of architecture that contains a golden building and tower with nine floors…so don’t do leg-day before going for a walk at this place.

My favorite painting was this big oil painting which I saw in the first building of the museum (its the painting in the first picture).
it’s painted by Cheikh Ndiaye, never heard of this guy before so I’m just gonna quote what my folder from the exhibition is telling me.

” The semi-abandoned and ruined building that features in the painting is surrounded by traces of life; it could also still be in use, even if we do not know whether it retains its original function.
Cheikh Ndiaye (Dakar, Senegal, 1970) works mainly in painting, but also with photography and installation, tracing myths, fairy tales, and legends and trying to understand the influences of social codes today. For this reason, his research always originates from informal contexts: casual encounters and visions on the streets of Dakar and other African cities are iconographic source and content, seeking realistic descriptive from that go beyond the anecdote. His observation of African identity focuses on the representation of both buildings and people”

Now we know…
I can only recommend you to google his name and see some of the other beautiful paintings he has created.

Show me your style // Johan Emil Pico

Johan Emil Pico described by me.

A really great and bubbly dude, who knows a LOT about fashion, wears kinda expensive clothes…and looks like someone who was meant to live his life in Paris with a cat in one hand and a croissant in the other, while he probably would be listening to old rock and roll vinyls on a vintage record player.
But, luckily he lives in great grey Copenhagen just like me haha…and besides that he is also, in fact, a part of the Arket family.


 

 

 

 


Describe your style in three
words

If I was to describe my style I would call it: minimalistic, French and rocker(ish)”

What are you wearing right now?

“Right now I am wearing: Saint Laurent Wyatt grey boots, Arket Slim-fit Trousers, Uniqlo Tee (you can’t see it duh ), Ami Alexander Matuissi oversized knitwear and to top it off I am wearing an Oversized overcoat which is a sample from Libertin Libertin”

What’s most important to you in an outfit?

“I build my outfit around my trousers/pants. Which is also what I find to be most important since I make sure that the rest of the outfit is matching whatever I am wearing on my legs. Side note: Some people style their outfit around their shoes, I CANNOT do that”

Who/what inspires you the most in terms of your style?

“Hmm, that’s a good question. I think its maybe two or three things that hold equally much significance. one part might be what I see on the runway at brands I enjoy. Another would be the way I see people style their clothing in the streets or on the internet (fx the youtuber Sangiev)”

Favorite brands?

“My all-time favorite brand is AMI Alexander Matuissi. The pieces he makes all just speak to me. It has been described as, it might sound a little corny, but as tailored clothes for the streetwear generation (shout out to GQ). Other Brands the likes of Haider Ackermann, Saint Laurent and surely Craig Green”

 

What has been your biggest style failure?

“It might have been back in elementary school (?) when I decided to jump on the Closecut fade/ Quiff haircut, it really did not work out for me”

 


Do you have any favorite items in your wardrobe?

“YES! that I do. For one would be the AMI sweater that I’m wearing. My newly acquired Saint Laurent Wyatt Boots. Also my Large fit Ami Chinos, and last but not least my Niel Barret Derby shoes”

Which items are your Grail(s)?

“For one the Super Oversized sweater that Raf Simmons wore on the Runway, like 3 seasons ago… I’m not sure of the season, but that sweater I think is to die for.
The SLP Wyatt harness black leather boots are also a piece that I have just loved since the first time I laid eyes upon it”

What is your best style tip?

“My best style tip is: Feel Sexy. that’s it. FEEL SEXY. when you feel sexy, or feel comfortable in your outfit you will automatically look better and more put together.
In the case that you want a direct styling tip of a piece of clothing, I would say: don’t be afraid to tuck in a loose shirt/tee shirt. it looks like you have put more of a thought into an outfit that you might have”

 

Thank you

Johan

 

 

 

The good old “show me your style” posts are having a comeback here on the blog very soon


Hey you,
Well, I don’t really know how long you’ve been hanging out here, but if you are one of those who has been here for a while now, you probably know that . P. I . started out as a street style blog, where I did these ” show me your style ” interviews.
But.
Life happened, other interesting things came up and my last interview was almost over a year ago… but I have really missed doing those kinds of interviews for quite some time now.
So right now I’m on the hunt for new people with great style potential, so I finally can get back to do some interviews that truly will inspire me and hopefully you too.

Stay tuned.

Reflecting on social medias impact

You see, I recently received this cute and ironic turtleneck and it brought some thoughts to my head…Okay, that was just me trying to make a smooth entrance to this heavy topic I’m about to share my thoughts on. Hmmm…

Well I’ve personally had a lot of both good and bad thoughts about social media… or actually, just every kind of media in general. So I feel like it’s about time to open up my scalp and let the thoughts flow…That sounded way more dramatic than I first had imagined.
But whatever.

The reality is, or my reality is…that I think we live in the most media controlled time so far.
I do personally feel lucky that I grew up in a childhood that did not contain smartphones or tablets that was constantly trying to get in touch with the parallel world that we have created and calls the internet.
Medias history, in general, goes way-way waaaaay back so I don’t think we need to go into details about medias occurrence and stuff like that. I don’t wanna bore you… Because if you have just read your history books through middle school it’s pretty obvious, that ever since a simple media form like an old-school newspaper was invented different kinds of media platforms has since then exponentially grown and have now reached a level of power that leaves way more impact on how we all think and act today, without even noticing.
Thanks to the technological development that has transformed the old school newspapers and commercials into apps that are filled with even more news and commercials, plus a huge social aspect coming from the updates on peoples social lives. Which has resulted in, that many other media form has become social media and are now almost an incorporated part of our personal lives in such huge an amount that’s never seen before?

We are talking lifestyle, fashion, music, health, political opinions and opinions just, in general, all the little random things that life is mostly about. So if you think of it, the media have in fact, become one of the biggest influence factors on our lives, and if you ask me, social media is now almost having a bigger influence on people than the people around the people has…and are constantly in charge of how we see and perceives the world. Even if we like it or not.
Now, of course, if you are living on a farm far far away and have never ever in your life seen an iPhone or created an IG feed, lucky you. Run while can, and be happy that your mind was never touched by this crazy technological world. I’m just kidding, I assume you already fell in like everyone else…because, otherwise how would you even be here reading this blog post right now?

But because of this social media explosion that had happened over the last few years, my concern lays in…do we even think our own thoughts after all then? or is it just a product or some kind of brainwash that we aren’t even aware of that was actually happening while we were busy “living our lives”? look I’m just as confused as you are right now, so let’s take a step back and reflect for a minute.

Okay, I’m back now.

Well, I’ve been thinking… again.
But I just read some articles written by some random psychologists that talks about how we since birth all are created to learn from what we see and hear around us. Just like the animals we are.
So the thing about social media and how it grows into our mindsets are actually pretty simple. I mean its natural to observe and learn right? because, how could you had even known better if you already felt the need to go look for answers? And social media is an easy way to go since its right there on our phones, computers, tablets and so on… we use it to speak to our loved ones, we use it for work, we use it educationally, we use it whenever we need answers of what to do or where to go, and much much more…
And it’s here it gets dangerous. Because even though social media is great in that way, that we might learn something new from each other or see things from different perspectives and therefore understand each other better, I personally think that we just have to be more aware of the data we let in to our system… because, not all of us are showing every side of our story or opinions, or the opinions behind the opinions.
I’m not always… It’s a lot of work you know?.
But well, the fact that social media is now such a big part of our everyday life is also what makes it easy for big companies, politicians, or actually just for anybody, to manipulate us to think or feel something. That might be real, but also might be fake.
So I think you can say…in some way, that there is a lot of fake news that is only created to push your thoughts, that pushes your feelings, and can end up creating a new opinion for you to have, which you can do whatever you wanna do with, but is it really you? or were you manipulated? did you think of this before someone else planted this feeling, this place or this idea in your head?

Stereotypes, lifestyle, trends, and whatever…I feel like every opinion of this age is, in fact, a product of social media.

Okay, I can feel that I have to stop myself now because I go on forever about this topic.
But my point is actually just to make you more aware of the control that social media actually have on your life and on my life too.
I’m not saying that there’s a huge need to fight it, but I think its definitely something we should keep in mind every day when we open up our computer.
Especially when we go out in the world/our technological world where we constantly unconsciously create and compare ourselves…and we all know that isn’t really healthy in the long run, so just be you and you’ll be great.

And if you are finding yourself bored one day, and you wanna discuss this topic even further? don’t feel shy to email me.

Outfit: A Miu Miu Manga

I’m wearing: Polo // Arket  Skirt // American Apparel  Bag // Miu Miu

So lately, I’ve kinda been into the kawaii look but in a cool way of course…lol.
You get my point, so I think this outfit would satisfy every little anime lover out there…that happens to love the color black.

For the friends I love

I know that this has absolutely no relevance for you as a “random” reader who just stumbled across my little blog here.
But this is my blog so…. I decided the importance of every post here, okay? okay.
So currently, life is going on…as always.
We are all in the process of growing every day while learning more and more about ourselves, and the people, and places around us.
Personally, I’m stressed out…but in such a good way, that it almost feels like a nice rush to me. A bit dangerous, I know.
Which has resulted in, that I probably have to quit drinking coffee… because it’s really not healthy for me in the long row. Not right now at least.
But! that’s not my point, my point with this post is actually just to share my personal stage of excitement for life and all the love I have for all the great people that I’m so fucking blessed to have around me.
You see, I know that not all people are gonna be in our lives forever.
But as good friends, we just gotta accept that there is going to be periods of everyone’s lives where we are not gonna talk as much as we used to.
And that’s fine because there are only 24 hours per day and unfortunately none of us has superpowers, so we can’t do ALL the things we really wanna do or see ALL the people we really want to see, or at least not EVERYTHING at one and the same time.
That is something me and my brain can have a hard time dealing with from time to time.
But it’s okay I’ll get better with the age, I know.
So last but least.
A special thanks to my friends, for being such nice people with the greatest hearts I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet.
Remember that you are doing great, we are doing great because we got each other.

Please never stop smiling.

China doll shoes

Basically, I’m always wearing sneakers, but currently, I’m really trying to wear other types of shoes just to see how it feels like.
These are some of my favorite shoes that I almost never wear for some unknown reasons.
The shoes are from Zara if you were wondering.

So I got bangs now! for the first time since kindergarten! whaaaaaaaaat

Changing hair color, or getting my friend Anna to cut my hair while she’s been drinking red wine …. are not really a new thing to me.
The new thing is actually that I went to a professional this time!
I have dyed my hair for many years now, and I’ve been thinking about going back (or closer) to my natural hair color for such a long time.
But! It all happened very spontaneously.
First of all, I did not really plan to get my hair done … I was actually just going with my friend Nattha to a salon called Freund, where she was going to get her beautiful long hair cut into a bob and dyed ashy blond, her dream is to go even blonder which I am a huge supporter of… so Nattha, go blond or go home! you beautiful little piece of honey.

Nattha got her hair done by the most amazing hairdresser Kasper Andersen, who is now or favorite hairdresser of all time!
He is absolutely amazing at his job and such a sweet person.
So after I saw Nattha’s beautiful result, Kasper was so sweet to take his time to fix my hair too which I am so thankful for!
He basically made all of my hair dreams come true, with going back to my natural color and giving it a twist with cutting some cute bangs… which I’ve never thought would suit me, but I really like it!

All in all, we had a great evening with candy, beers and the sweetest hairdresser on earth.

Outfit: dreamy dress & douchebag shoes

I could write about how I think this is a perfect combination of something very dreamy and feminine, and something very sporty and masculine.
But it’s late and I have to wake up early tomorrow… and go to work.

You can buy the dress at H&M and the shoes at any footlocker store.

Outfit: french fries


Last week my cousin and I went for a ride in her car and stopped at McDonald’s drive-in, simply just to get the best Coca-Cola in town and some fries.
After that we just drove around listening to music, taking pictures and making small videos, while catching up on both of our life situations.

It was a really great day.

The art group field trip part.1

Art is what I believe, one of the few things where there doesn’t have to be said much.
Because the way a piece can speak to me are never gonna be 100% similar to the way it can speak to you.
If you find it good, it’s good,  that’s why I think that art should always speak for itself.
Because I feel like, by sharing my opinion about an exhibition maybe could disturb you in creating your 100%  own opinion, and that would be a shame if you haven’t even seen the exhibitions yet.
So…that’s why I’m not gonna share any deeper thoughts of mine, about the Danh Vo exhibition at SMK
or my thoughts about some of the pieces we saw at Lousiana.
I can only recommend you to go observe the exhibitions.

Note to the “art group” : Thank you for the coziest day ever!

Papa’s jacket

So I know that oversized clothing has been a thing in what feels like forever now.
And I love it!
But this jacket is maybe a little bit too big for me haha, it’s my dad’s old jacket from his young rebel days.
You see the thing is…I have lived my whole life (since I was 10 years old) alone, with my dad and a dog.
And I love my dad, he’s my best friend and even if he wasn’t my dad, he would still be my best friend.
But! for as long as I can remember, he has always dressed me in men’s wear since I was a kid, I remember going to school in camouflage trousers, black t-shirt, and converse…so, basically dressed like a mini Lara Croft, while the other girls were wearing basic blue jeans and pink tops.
So I was lucky!
So imagine how proud my dad’s face looks when he sees me in his giant jacket, and after all, if everything fails I can always move in and live inside of this jacket.

Please… do yourself a favour and listen to Ravyn Lenae

 

So I have first recently discovered Ravyn Lenae,  she is a super talented 19-year-old singer, from Chicago who is going places, that is, in fact, something you can hear in the second you listen to her songs “The night song” & “Free Room”
She is at the moment signed by Atlantic records, and I believe and hope that we are gonna hear so much more to this young wonder very soon.

These cute checkered 70’s pants

I feel like checkered print has been a thing for a long time now, and personally, I got a lot of checkered printed items already.
But you know… it’s okay to have an obsession and add some more to my already ongoing collection.
These pants are super cute and super cheap so I thought I would share them with you guys.
Our broke asses gotta stick together right?

A quick note

Confusion is okay.
Being confused is what makes everything a bit more interesting.
But, please don’t mix confusion with the feeling of fear, trust me that’s a dangerous cocktail.
Instead…just mix confusion with whatever makes you happy.

I just felt like sharing that.

An interview done by two friends sitting in a pool together

Where are we?
“We are at Skodsborg Spa” 

If we weren’t here, where would you have gone to relax today?

“Home enjoying the weather”

How do you clear your mind?
“I normally relax at my house with no obligations to do. Just me, myself and I”

What is the best treatment you think you can give yourself to feel extra relaxed and zen-ish?
“To not feel stressed, start the day with a clear mind and a good 9hours sleep. Normally the night before I try to write down my thoughts in a book, so I can let everything go when I sleep, or else I become stressed while I am sleeping”

The best outfit to relax in is?
“Loungewear or naked. I don’t mind being naked at my own place. But loungewear, where no bra is needed, nothing too tight”

What artists do you listen to at the moment, when you feel like it’s time to escape?
“I listen to Lianna Havas, it’s so relaxing to listen to her. Plus her voice I beautiful”

If you had to choose between drinking coffee or tea right now, what would you choose?
“Coffee, I am kinder obsessed”

What is the advise you wish people would tell you when your feeling stressed?
“To let everything go and RUN! just kidding…I would like people to help and let me relax or offer something; just telling me everything is going to be okay I guess”

Try to describe the most ideal escape spot that you could ever imagine.
“Put me on an island without internet and just palm trees and healthy foods”

So one of my good friends made this video…

So my good friend Mikkel have been playing around with some videos, and since Mikkel has other friends too…those friends asked him to do a little music video for their band called “The kids in the hall”.
And since I am Mikkel’s friend, I’m, of course, supporting him and his creativity by spreading the word here on my little blog.

Simply just search for The kids in the hall – Music is my best friend on youtube.

The benefits of being happy with yourself from every god damn angle

 


Where I come from, it used to be really inappropriate to pin out the things you love about yourself or simply just the things your good at.
But Instagram or just social media, in general, came into the world and changed that.
My generation loves to show off on social media but in an “I’m not really trying to hard, kind of way” of course, even I do that… but we all know, that we all try our best to look good, or at least to create a look or an aesthetic that fits our image or into the IG feed.
So, every day we collect inspiration, on social media, in magazines, TV, commercials, and from all the beautiful people we see on the streets that we think look better than ourselves.
But this is not a blog post about how bad the society has become with all its technology, social media, and unrealistic bullshit.
But let me tell you this…not everything is unrealistic, even though some things can be sometimes, even when they actually look real.
Sometimes you get fooled, but not every time.
Just remember we are society, so in the end, I believe that it’s all up to ourselves.
Everything…education/no education, sexuality, religion, coffee brand, political opinion, mental health, love, toothpaste, body image, and attitude.

Motherfucking everything is up to you.
Sorry for my underdeveloped language skills, but I’m a simple being.
My point is just that recently while I was walking around naked in my apartment, got a comment/compliment from two of my very close friends, saying ” Nanna, why are you so comfortable naked?” they both said with a laugh and at the same time with an admiring tone to there voices.
Normally I would just have said something stupid or even made a joke of my nonexistent tits.
But instead I just simply asked “why would I ever feel uncomfortable right now? just because I’m naked in front of you? I mean I’m happy about me” while trying not to sound arrogant or get misunderstood.
And then it hit me, I truly feel blessed because of the fact that I’m not worried about situations like that.
And it’s actually really something that I’m grateful for every single day… because, imagine going through every single day having one less thing to worry about, so you can put your time and focus into dreams and people,  wouldn’t that be great?
I know that self-image and especially body image matter so much to most women around the globe, and I’m only saying that because I am a woman.
Thoughts like “if I could just find the time and energy to workout as much as that Instagram model”, ” I feel fat after eating those fries” “that girl have such a nice pair of legs, mine are short enough to fit into the kid section jeans, besides my ass is too big” or even “I wonder if his ex’s skin was prettier than mine” .
Bullshit thoughts, that you hit yourself with when you’re mostly already feeling low, thoughts that can easily take away the feeling of being carelessly happy.
And that is just a waste of time because your happiness should always be your number one priority.
Even if it involves other people or drastic changes, all you get is you and you gotta be the best role model for yourself.

That’s why I want to share my thoughts on that situation with you guys, and I really hope that you are getting the right vibes from me because I’m really not trying to sound totally put together or anything, it’s just my personal thoughts and I know that we all got insecurities.
But as long as we work on them.

Personally, I would say while growing up I have reached a mental level that allows me to think that I am 100% perfect for me and that has to be! and is! enough!
And if there is something about me or the way I look that distracts me from being happy, I’ll 100% go change that into the better by working and improving in some way, or make myself think about if my insecurity actually is something I can accept and learn to love? because if you can’t love it it’s not worth your time thinking about accepting it. Then rather take action to learn something new. For example, I used to hate my eye’s, I have something called a lazy eye which results in that my left eye is much more closed than the right eye, which made me think that I kinda looked like the cartoon Quasimoto. It used to bother me so much when I was younger, that I was 100% sure that I was going to have a surgery the day I would turn 18 so I could finally get rid of my lazy eye.

But that never happened, I now live in 2018 along whit my cute lazy eye on my face.
As I grew older I started to realize that my insecurity actually was something other people adored about my look. And of course that instantly empowers you a little, after all as humans, we are all searching for recognition.
Especially hearing something like that from a person you love, doesn’t necessarily make you believe in it, but it can plant a little seed of self-love and encourage you to bloom later on.
Remember, we all experience the world in different ways, so the things you feel insecure about can actually be the things that we love about you.
So, my advice on how to get more comfortable with yourself and your body is simply to give your insecurities a big warm hug and tell them to calm the fuck down, they are a part of you and you are the most perfect imperfection.
Trust me your imperfections can shape you to be even more awesome if you just let yourself love them to the fullest.
Perfection was born from imperfections.

And last but not least, outta glow and what I personally define as “good-looking people” comes from inner peace, a kind heart, and a great personality.

Whenever I go on a rosé & risotto date I wear:

I’m wearing: Dress // Monki  Jacket // Zara  Bag // &OtherStories  Shoes // Very old H&M

So currently I’m only going on real dates with myself, I know it’s lonely and sexy in a very independent way.
But trust me, currently, I’m better alone.
Besides from when I’m going out with my lovely senorita friends of course.
You know, friends, risotto, and rosé it just goes hand in hand.

(The last picture is actual footage of me listening to Arctic Monkeys, desperately waiting for Alex Turner to call me back)

Lace Bras

Lace is elegant, lace is feminine, lace is classic, and last but not least lace is so perfectly French.
I personally love lace bras and it’s pretty much the only kind of bra that I ever wear.
Lace bras are btw also super smart doing the summertime, psssst you get a lot of air to your boobs.
And last but not least ( yes she said it twice) if you have small banana boobs I can tell from personal experience that lace bras look incredibly sexy on you.
Your welcome, my bras are from &OtherStories and Monki.

The road

So…I’m on a road, I don’t know where it’s gonna take me to.
But the most important thing is that I’m on it.
Things happen.
We just have to remember.
The first to apologize is the bravest.
The first to forgive is the strongest.
The first to forget is the happiest, but not forever.
But the thing is not to forget anything, it’s about accepting it or do something about it.

Right?

First of all, I want to share my first experience at the restaurant Pluto which happens to be the most amazing restaurant I’ve ever gone to. The food is the best I’ve ever tasted, the staff is so kind and sweet, and the aesthetic is perfectly casual.
I personally went for hummus, bread, risotto, and rosé.
And since Amanda and I went the first time, it’s been my favorite go-to restaurant.

The food club at Frederiksberg (madklubben), was also good but to be honest, compared to Pluto I don’t think it’s even close to being at the same level tastewise.
But don’t get me wrong the food was great and the staff was also sweet, and the aesthetic was pure danish designed.
But for me personally, it’s not a restaurant where I feel at home.

District Tonkin is a place where both me and Amanda have been a lot, it’s a really good Vietnamese restaurant, where you know exactly what you get which is really good Vietnamese food basically… and a little side bonus is that they have an amazing chocolate mousse for one of there desserts.
Plus it’s super affordable and super casual, perfect for a first date I would say.
But if you are a really big fan of Vietnamese food like Amanda and me, and are willing to pay a little extra I would defiantly recommend you to pay restaurant Lélé a visit, it’s placed at Vesterbrogade 40
1620 Copenhagen V and that is defiantly the best Vietnamese restaurant in Copenhagen.

Not my colour

I’m wearing: Skirt // H&M T-shirt // Monki Shoes // Asos

Currently: listening to Christina Aguilera while I’m ironing my clothes… after I’ve just taken a look at these pictures Ekua took of me a while ago…this kind of green is really not me.
But the skirt is still pretty, we are just not a team I guess.

New year? there’s a new me every day?

 

Well, happy new year everyone!
I’m sure that you all made it through so far and hopefully didn’t got your hands blown off at new years eve.
Some of you may still be struggling with the leftovers of your hangover, or maybe just continuing your hangover? But that’s what brings us to this point where we’re going to talk about how great people we’re going to be in the new year. How we’re going to get a bonus at work, how we’re going to workout every day and get in shape, how we’re going to travel the world for free, and how this is the year where we’re going to find true love.
But in the end, we all know that’s not going to happen.

Personally, I love to dream about how great everything is going to turn out someday, and no joke, it would be nice if everything just fell into place in one year.
But let’s face it… life is a bitch from time to time, and we all know that only if we’re lucky, maybe one of these goals are going to come true this year.
So, now you probably jumped to the conclusion that I’m a negative person?

But let me tell you this, I’m not.
In general, I’m just tired of hearing from pretty much every blogger/youtuber/and fucking influencers! how they are going to travel the world for free, how they are planning to find true love and get married, how they just randomly are going on a sick diet where they have to live of vegetable juices every day!?! because they have 700 photoshop … I mean “photoshoots” to attend to.
And then they all be like, New year new me.
And that line just has to happily disappear from my world, please just delete it from your vocabulary.
May you say I’m just jealous? maybe? I absolutely am just like everyone else would be.

In fact, my point is, don’t just be a better you because of a god damn new year! be a better version of you, for you every day.

I’m not saying that you have to forget about all of your dreams and goals, or even be realistic about them…that was just an advice. Actually, promises me you’ll never do that! just go for it.

But you don’t have to change because of the fact that we’re going from 2017 to 2018. Or because some annoying blogger just told you about all of their crazy goals for 2018 and now you just sit there in your bed with your computer feeling bad about yourself, just like I do.
But that’s why I’m here to tell you this.
You only have to change yourself for you and your needs and dreams.
Try to see the world from different perspectives, no-one said that your perspective was the right one, right?
Maybe you learn something, or you learn someone.
But in the end, that’s what I believe makes the difference.
By learning little by little, and see what works out the best.
Just start today okay? not in 2019.

Earrings that follows the trends of our time

Hello Peeps
So a few months ago I shot some photos for my dear friend Amalie, who is the founder of By Amalie Rytter – Scandinavia.

By Amalie Rytter is a jewellery brand which is focusing on earrings that follows the trends of our time.
What characterises the brand is their raw and minimalistic jewellery design, combined with an it-girl feeling.
Which I think creates a nice contrast between being “trendy” and staying “simple”, besides that it’s the perfect compromise for the it-girl that wants more, but still doesn’t want to go broke at the end of the month.

So If you like what you see, go follow By Amalie Rytter on Instagram for more updates.

Erdem X H&M // because flowers bloom with no regret

 

 

Hello people!
So I know it’s been a while since the Erdem X H&M collection was launched, but I think I’ll give it a go with this post anyway.
I’m gonna be honest with you guys, I’v never really been into the whole H&M collaborating with high end designer brands like Kenzo ,Balmain, and so on.
But! then this collection was created and I instantly fell in love with every single piece.
The collection, and the entire universe that Erdem have created is unbelievably beautiful, the collection is filed with sharp cuts, dramatic dresses, lace, and flower prints which is very typical for Erdems catwalk collections.
The universe of this collection is in my opinion just magnificent…I mean have you seen the commercial for this collection ? pure perfection I tell you. Just check it out here.
So yeah, of course I was in the line in front of H&M the 2. November, and luckily I got my fingers on this amazing dress and even better these adorable earrings.

Another thing about this collection I really like, is the fact that Erdem and H&M got one of my favourite bands (Years & Years) to write a song for this collection and it’s commercial.
So naaah, I actually don’t think that this collection could possibly get any better, because it’s already perfect.

Copenhagen fashion week // Zalando Studios

Hello ladies and gents,
So as you may know Copenhagen fashion week started this week.
Personally I used to go to all the events that I possibly could, but this year I really dont’t have the time for it.
Because I’m now working a fulltime job in Monki which I’m so happy about, but of course working 37 hours a week takes a lot of time, even thought its in the best store with the best colleges ever.
But! Monday night I scrolled through CFW Instagram site, and there was a competition going on where you could win an entrance for two people to the Zalando Studio x Copenhagen fashion week event, there would be goodiebags, drinks and snacks , and lots of interviews with designers form all over Scandinavia, an interview focusing about personal branding, trend AW17 talk with Mie Juel and Mads Emil Grove Møller, Scandinavian style interview with Malene Malling, exhibition, lounge and a fashion show with some of the new design talents, and of course a cocktail hour where DJ Emilie Lilja would be playing.
And yeah then me and Melissa won, whup whup!
But we both had to work that day, Melissas had no problem getting the day off, but I had a little struggle because I didn’t knew if I could go earlier form my shift. But for my luck and because I have the best boss in the world,
my boss said that it was okay for me to leave earlier.

So I literally ran down to the metro after work, got on my way the to ‘Papirhallen’ where the whole thing was going to be hosted.
Met dear Melissa and we were ready to atten the event. Btw that’s also why I looked so casual in some of the photos, because I came directly from work haha.
But yeah the event was brilliantly planned, my favourite part of the event was the fashion show with new design talents.
I especially liked the collection from Heliot Emil.
The first picture here in this post is actually a picture of my favourite look from the collection.

And of course moving on to the goodiebag.
In the goodiebag there were all the things you see here on the picture above, and of course a lot of snacks and drinks. But I ate it all, sorry I’m a hungry girl. There was also a little love tag form Jane Kønig with the letter Z, it was possible to exchange it to another letter, but I decided to keep it, since my old dog’s name was ‘Zigo’.

And after a perfect day with fashion shows, and a lot of interviews with some of the best people in the business here in Denmark.
Me and Melissa decided to eat at Tony’s and get a three meal dinner.
And I can say that it was delicious.

I hope you guys have a lovely fashion week.

Show me your style // Anna Lyhne

So I’m finally back with a new show me your style post here on the blog.
So as you guys, maybe know these “show me your style” posts are actually one of my favorite things to do, and I finally interviewed my best friend Anna here.
So if you wanna see more of Anna’s cute style just keep scrolling.

Anna Lyhne
Studying Biotechnology in Copenhagen, with a love for cats and everything green.


Describe your style in three words.
Sustainable, cozy, and with a twist of Harry Potter

What are you wearing right now?
Pants from Monki, coat from Cos, boots from Dr. Martens, and the first bag my mom ever bought when she was young.

What is most important to you in an outfit?
The shoes, it’s all about the shoes.

Who/what inspires you the most in terms of your style?
I guess my mom does, she has been a big influence and has the largest shoe collection I have ever seen. People and things around me are also a big inspiration.

Favorite brands?
That would be Dr. Martens. Most of my Dr. Martens shoes are secondhand and the same goes for my clothes.

What has been your biggest style failure?
When I was young I tried to dress kind of alternatively and it was not a success. It didn’t fit me and it didn’t reflect who I was properly.

Do you have any favorite items in your wardrobe?
My coat, my black jeans, and my shoe collection that primarily consists of Dr. Martens boots.

Which items do you dream of owning?
None, I have everything I need.

What is your best style tip?
Choose a color or a statement piece when putting together an outfit and finish it off with a pair of black boots.

 But remember to do whatever works for you – and don’t let other people tell you what’s wrong or right. If you want to wear six colors at the same time, do it!

What is beauty? // Karen Lolgeeti

Before anybody reads this, I would like to say that I know that not everyone can relate to the things that I’m talking about here in this post.
I know that it may cost me hate and love.
But… everyone has the right to speak, and tell their thoughts to the world.
So that’s what I’m / we are going to do now.
– Love

As a person born into the world as female being, something always comes along with that… like there comes with everything.
Like… when a cheetah is born into this world we suspect it to have little black dots all over its body, and grow up and run faster than anybody else… Or when a rose is supposed to jump out at springtime, the world suspects it to be red and beautiful.
And like the rose and the cheetah…when a human girl is born into this world, we suspect her to be feminine, because she’s a girl right? And when we say feminine, most of us thinks of a beautiful girl gifted with a soft voice. But is that really it?
Is that in reality all we can think of, when we think of a female human being? Beauty?
Lately I have been struggling with these kind thoughts inside of my head and this is only a little piece of them. So please forgive me, this post can be misunderstood, but I’ll do my best. But you have to understand that I’m worried. I’m worried about the future that the younger generation of women is going to face.
Because… I don’t want any girl growing up thinking that society already has chosen who these little girls are going to be.
Just because they’re girls, they don’t have to be the society’s version of the feminine. They can, and I hope they will, be their own version of feminine… their own version of beauty… and just truly be themselves. Just like every living thing on this planet should be.
But to make people think about this topic, just a little… I have interviewed a young and beautiful woman named Karen, who has a thing or two to say about this.
Pssst… she’s actually my sister in law.

Small interview – What is beauty? – 13/1/2017 – 15:00.

What do you personally think that feminism stands for?
“Personally, I like to think of feminism as a word that stands for, strong women who fights for the rights for being just what they are or want to be”

How does society affects your vision of women’s beauty in your everyday life?

“First of all I think that social media has a lot to do with how people around the world looks on the stereotypical beauty type for women, if you can say so… My theory is, that the media sometimes send an unrealistic vision on how a beautiful girl looks like, you know, women doesn’t only come in one body shape. And with that, I think that men, not all men, of course… but some men, may look at those Instagram photos or whatever, and start to think that that is the frame for being beautiful as a woman. And that affects a lot of women, of course… but personally commercials, Instagram photos and so on doesn’t really get to me now for some reason, but when I was younger it did, of course, because at the age of 13 you don’t really know what’s going on, so all you do is just trying to keep up”

What do you think about beauty idols? Is that a good or a bad thing?

” It depends on what kind of beauty idol that people are looking up to, as it is now… where every girl wants to look like a Victorias Secret model or Kim K, or maybe just want a look that only 1 out of a 1000 women can have, then I think its a ridiculous thing… but if the idol is you know, a healthy idol, a woman who takes care of her body and exercise and eats healthy, then I think its a good beauty idol, because that is pretty much what I find attractive. But at the same time… you know, every body shape can be / and is beautiful… so it’s very difficult to give just one answer”

What do you define as true beauty?

” I think that the most important thing about being or feeling beautiful is personal radiance, I mean, you know… you have to accept yourself and your own body, before you can embrace it and be fully happy about it… and when you’re mentally happy about yourself it shows so much on the outside, and that’s what I think real beauty is… its that positive personal radiance that light up in peoples faces when they believe in themselves, and with that in mind you can pretty much look at any body type and think that every single one of them is beautiful if just the positive personal radiance is there”

When do you feel the most beautiful?

“ Well… I work out a lot, that’s sort of my thing.. I pretty much work out 2 hours a day and I love it, I love to push myself in that way, into getting stronger and healthier, so I would defiantly say when I have worked out and are eating healthy. Because that’s where I mentally also has the most profit in my brain, to just shine bright in my everyday life so… “

If you should give young girls an advice about feeling beautiful? what would it be?

” Well.. I would definitely say that the most important thing is to be yourself and be comfortable with who you are and what you do, I mean, if you are feeling good about working out, then do that, or if you’re fine with eating healthy, then do that, or if you maybe love doing make-up then keep doing that, but it’s also a question about balance. Because you have to also be able to relax if you’re not doing those things that keeps you going… I mean personally I hate when I miss a workout session at the gym, and that’s something I’m really working with, because that’s not how it’s suppose to be…. I mean you just have to let go sometimes and just relax. “

I hope that this post just made a little sense… I mean, my most important thought behind this post was actually just to get people wondering or maybe just talk about this topic over the dinner table.
Because I think that there’s a lot to talk about. And I know that there are maybe some other girls out there that really need to discuss this topic.
So keep talking.
But you have to remember, no one is perfect… and I’m not saying with this post that Instagram and social media is only a bad thing, and you should cut it out of life forever or anything… No! Don’t do that. If you love it, then embrace it.
And personally, you guys probably know that I like social media, because it gives me the opportunity to be more creative and share it with others who lives with the same passion.
So yeah, my last words… go be who you want to be and eat that pizza if you want to.

Hey guys!
So I’ve recently gotten a lot of requests concerning how I edit my Instagram photos, so I thought; Why not make a quick and easy guide for you guys. This guide will explain the way I edit the photograph, step-by-step. We’re going to use a cup of coffee as our example, since that’s a pretty common thing to post on Instagram.. right?
So…

Step 1.
The first thing I always do is to access the photo in my iphone’s picture gallery, and press “edit” in the top right-hand corner.

Step 2.
With the picture ready for editing, i start off by enabling the “auto-editing” function. I then use the fade-filter.

Step 3.
In step three i adjust exposure and contrast in varying degrees according to the given picture. For instance, in picture 3, i have decreased the exposure and enhanced the contrast. Moreover, the glance-lighting is decreased, since I find that suitable for this picture.

Step 4.
We now move on to use the Instagram app itself. In here, I turn down the heat of the picture.

Step 5.
The Instagram app also has the functions of “structure” and “sharpness”. I have turned up both of these functions to enhance the sharpness and details of the photo.

So now you have an idea of how I edit mainstream pictures myself on Instagram. This stuff isn’t the most pro stuff out there, but I like to keep it simple.

Hungry? – Part 1 // Gran Torino // Nørrebro

Gran torino.

So, my food loving friend Amanda and I, are always exploring the vast food Universe of Copenhagen.
You see, we have this kind of tradition, thats about going out for a dinner date at least one time a month where we are exploring a new restaurant every single time.
It so fun to hang out with Amanda while we’re eating delicious food, and we figured that, since this delicious tradition is working out just swell for us, why not share it with you guys?

Therefore, this “Hungry part (1,2,3…)” post is gonna be some sort of series here on the blog where Amanda and I are commenting on the restaurants that we’re visiting.
So read along if you wanna know our opinon about Gran Torino.

Our thoughts about Gran Torino: 

” The food was delicious, the space was some kind of an Urban dream… but the sound in the room made me a little crazy, people were talking pretty fucking loudly, which is indicative of less than ideal room acoustics.. not the best of conditions for a romantic date… The food, however, was indeed delicious, which is obviously the most important part. Right guys? Right??. The dinner was comprised of a main course consisting of risotto with lobster and tiramisu for dessert. After these two courses, however, the fire of the deep hunger in our bellies wasn’t extinguished, so we had to go ahead and order another main course, but that could just be my insatiable culinary hunger clouding my judgment.  #fat… 😉 “

Amalie Rytter Jørgensen.
She is the definition of a Scandinavian fashion girl – Working for hvisk.com – and has a simple love for homemade ice-coffee.

Describe your style in three words.
” Classic – a mix of materials – simple”

What are you wearing right now?
” Shoes from Vagabond, a skirt from New Look, blouse from H&M, rings from hvisk, coat from Vero Moda, and I don’t know where I got my sunglasses from haha…”

What is most important to you in an outfit?
” feeling comfortable is the most important thing.. And I especially feel comfortable when I mix materials and textures in my outfits, it just gives the outfit a little extra”

Who/what inspires you the most in terms of your style?
” A person that always inspires me is my aunt, she has since I was a kid always been some kind of a role model to me, so yeah… otherwise I would say things like social media, people on the streets, and definitely people from my school KEA”

Favorite brands?
” Well..many people think that I’m one of those who really cares about the brand of my clothing, but the truth is actually that I really don’t care at all… I mean if it looks nice and is well made, why should I care which brand it’s from? but I must say that a have a little crush on Ganni’s design lately”

What has been your biggest style failure?
” In generally just when I was at the age around 11 until 14 years old, I think that you could say that I maybe went through a little identity crisis, I have been Emo and so on… so yeah haha”

Do you have any favorite items in your wardrobe?
” Uh, I can I pick more that one? hihi… well I would say my leather jacket from Hosbjerg because it’s a leather jacket so it goes with pretty much everything. Otherwise, I really adore my Valentino ballerina shoes”

Which items do you dream of owning?
” A long fur coat from Meotine… because it’s SO beautiful! and its freezing cold here in Copenhagen right now so..”

My trip to Stockholm

Processed with MOLDIV

So I’m home from Stockholm! And I had an amazing trip and therefor I will of course tell you guys all about it.
I took a lot of pictures of the hotel, the area we were living in, the food and everything so I hope that you guys will find it interesting to read along while I share my first Stockholm experience with you guys.

//  MY HOTEL  //

Miss Clara by Nobis.

Processed with MOLDIV

So I went to Stockholm last week, and the city as well as my hotel were amazing. I stayed at the Miss Clara by Nobis hotel, which I think had a very nice location in the middle of the city. The room was beautiful with its modern and minimalistic style and VERY BIG windows! Otherwise the service was amazing, and the breakfast delicious.

Find the hotel right here.

// ART //

Moderna Museet – Yayoi Kusama – In Infinity.

Processed with MOLDIV

One of the days my dad and me went to the modern museet to see the art exhibition “In infinity” by Yayoi Kusama.
I have to say that I was kind of disappointed about the size of the whole thing, but at least all the art pieces were amazing!

// The food //

Processed with MOLDIV

So I ate a lot of food while I was there… course yeah. Why not? In Stockholm they have some of the same kind of quality food that we also have in Copenhagen. However, I have to say that I fund a new favorite burger place while I was there, which is nowhere to find in Copenhagen.The place is called Vigårda and it’s situated on Norrlandsgatan 13, 111 43 Stockholm, Sweden. I think the price of a menu is super cheap. And the best of it all? they have the best vegetarian burger I have ever tasted!

Find them on instagram right here.

Btw. If you guys have any other questions about any other places I have been eating in Stockholm, please just write it in the comment and I will try to guide you guys to some delicious places.


// Stockholm is a beautiful city //

So all in all you may now have the impression that I’m completely in love withe Stockholm. And YES you’re right.
And honestly the city is filled with great architecture, great food, great shopping areas, great art…. so yeah how could I not fall in love withe this city? A thing that I’m completely in love with is the look of the buildings in Stockholm; they look a lot like the buildings in Copenhagen… just older and even more beautiful.
