I’ve been wanting to talk about this for a really long time…But today was the day, that I finally realized that I had to come clean, not just to the people around, but mostly for myself, so I can begin to live my life fully and surround myself with the things that I love to do.
The topic of today is how I’ve got to learn to love – and own up to – who I truly am… to embrace both my personality, passions and dreams.
For the past few months I’ve been consulting a psychologist because of some mental issues that I’m struggling with…the things I’m struggling with are still to private for me to share though, but I guess we all have our secrets.
But I can tell you that the last time I was in therapy my psychologist reminded me of one (sorry for my language) motherfucking important thing! life is too short to let all the bad things and people in your life get you down.
For a long time I’ve been scared of being who I am, own it and embrace it. And the weird thing is that Im not scared to let the world know, but I’m scared to embrace it in front of my closest. And that have just made me feel awful about myself for a really long time, I mean your family should be the people that know you the best right? But for me…it’s just not the case right now.
I mean of course they know me, most of them have seen me grow up, but a lot have been going on the last few years….and lets just say I’ve had my ups and downs, that very few people know about.
But now I’m finally beginning to feel better, but this little tiny thing is still knocking me down everyday.
Because.. I feel that my parents (whom I love endlessly of course) doesn’t accept my interests or who I’ve become the last few years.
I’ve changed a lot, not my personality but my interests have definitely changed.
My parents got a divorce when I was about 10-11 years old, and I’ve lived with my dad ever since.
Me and my dad had always had a huge passion for motorsports and I’ve been driving gokart for many years and I loved it.
But since I started at the gymnasium and things were getting totally out of hand with my mental health and I was feeling completely damaged inside, because of all the bad thoughts and stress in my head.
I had to quit school for a whole year.
The next year I started again, but realised that I had to quit one of my biggest passions and hobbies, motorsports.
I remember being devastated about telling my dad that I wasn’t going to drive anymore, because of school. But he saw the point with my decision very quickly. But I think he at some point always thought I would start driving again after I’ve finished school.
But as I said earlier my interests really went form one end of the spectrum to the other.
I’ve always been very creative as a kid and I think it just came back to me in the past few years. I’ve started drawing, editing, taking pictures, and all in all just creating something again.
And then I threw my love on fashion and social media.
That’s why I started a blog and just recently started a little youtube channel, because I just like to create something.
But my parents are of course from another generation than I am, so they don’t quite understand what a blog or a youtube channel is…
They have created their own vision on social media persons, like youtubers, bloggers or instagramers as people that just love to think that they are better than anybody else, and just want to throw their perfect life up in your face every time you open your instagram.
People that only think THEY are the shit and maybe take themselves a little bit too seriously.
But in some case my parents just forgot I guess, that I’m not like that.
And thats why they just never really accepted it before today.
Because today I told them, that they made me sad for being who I am…and for not supporting me in my dreams and new passions.
And honestly when my parents doubt me, I doubt me too.
Because I just really wanted to make them proud, but even though the most important thing is to first of all make myself proud.
The worst feeling is to feel like you have to hide a part of yourself everyday. And I’ve never felt that I had to hide in front of strangers, but definitely in front of my family definitely because I’ve alway known that they wouldn’t understand at all.
But you can’t hide forever, and nobody should because it’s hella exhausting and it just made me more and more insecure about myself. I mean I’ve never shared my blog on my facebook wall because I was scared that people that know my family would start asking them questions, and then I thought my family maybe would be like ” yeah I don’t really know whats going on ether”.
That’s why I realised that I had to find some courage to speak up and tell them point of view.
We have now had a really long talk about all of this, and my parents were truly happy that I actually shared my thoughts like this and stood up for myself. Besides that, they have now seen the differences between bloggers, youtubers and so on, and realised that it’s not all of us that just want to talk about how amazing our lifes are our how you just can’t be fashionable without a crazy expensive designer bag, that you only should buy brand new from the Chanel store and never second hand.
Some of us just like to share fashion inspiration, play with colours and prints, photography and video editing, and most importantly share a little personality and relate to other pepole.
Because I see it as a give an take business, you get inspired and then you inspire.
You read a story and maybe related to it, and then maybe starts to reflect over your own life or decisions. And who knows maybe it helps maybe it doesn’t, but at least it was some kind of entertaining.
That’s why I’m so relieved now that my parents actually know me for who I am again.
And most of all accept me, so I can start not being scared anymore, because now I know they got my back.
Promise me you never hide yourself for so long like I did, life is to short to not live your dreams and passions, and not embracing yourself for being just who you want to be, yourself.
I know that now.
Just a super quick tip for all my shopaholic fellas out there.
First I want to say that I’m a huge fan of recycling, vintage and what ever to call it.
It’s very rare that I’ll ever buy expensive designer things, brand new at a store. I like that my items have a history and of course I like to save that extra cash, just as well caring about the environment.
And that’s why I want to tell you about Vestiaire Collective, if you don’t know what Vestiaire Collective is, you should definitely go check the app or website out. Personally I have only been using the app, because it’s so much easier on the go.
Vestiaire Collective is this site/app were people can sell and buy designer items, both vintage and brand new items.
It’s super easy to use, because of the wishlist function on the app, and another thing I like about Vestiaire Collective is the fact, that every time you buy something the seller first have to ship the item to Vestiaire Collective where they check the standard of the product.
And that’s nice!
My latest buy from Vestiaire Collective is this cute pastel pink clutch/purse from Chanel.
I have a little DIY dream that includes this clutch so I’m pretty exited about how that’s gonna turn out.
So here in Copenhagen it’s kinda went from summer season to fall season, over night.
But Zaful got me covered with this comfy sweater and even though it’s fall season, the sun has been out and about here in Copenhagen so I thought why not pair it with these cute cat eye sunglasses, which is also from Zaful.
But yeah, a couple of weeks ago I was contacted by Zaful, and they asked me if I would like to do a review on some of their products. And of course I was in for it.
So I picked out a sweater and these sunglasses.
The products are first of all, so much better than I thought they would be.
The sweater is thick and warm, and just a perfect item for the fall season. It has these very cute ribbons on the sleves which I think give the sweater a nice edgy look.
And now to the sunglasses, I think that everything about them is just perfect.
They are these white cat-eye-shaped sunglasses which would appear to be of solid quality. And most of all I just really like the American 50’s vibe they give me.
And just as a reminder I want to say, that yes this is a sponsored article, but remember it’s a review and everything I’ve wrote is 100% my honest opinion.
Once again thanks to Zaful, I really appreciate it.
So Hello ladies and gents, it’s been a while…
But now I’m finally back with a new post here on the blog! So as you can see I recently returned from my vacation in Spain. I came home last week, and I’ve been working since then. So, that why this post first gets published today.
Besides that I’m so happy to be home again. I feel so inspired with a lot of new ideas for upcoming blog posts so I can’t wait to get to work more here on the blog. So stay tuned guys I tell you, stay tuned!
Besides from that, I think that this is probably the longest post I have ever done… because of all the photos of course haha.
So I’ll make this really short. My vacation was great, I’ve finally got a tan wup wup, and yeah I have actually just been chilling day in and day out, so that’s been great. If you want a more detailed version of what I’ve been up to, check out the video, and don’t forget to show it a lil’ love.
Hello ladies and gents.
So I’m pretty god damn tired of the danish summer weather and all I want right now is just some nice autumn weather so I can wear boots, coats and sweaters again.
I know it’s weird wishing for autumn since most people mostly wish for summer weather… I don’t know I guess I’m just weird.
I think it’s because danish summer weather is like 10% sunny days, 45% rainy days, and 45% windy days. And when I think of summer, I think of REAL summer, like the weather around the Mediterranean. That’s real summer weather.
Actually, I’m going to Spain next week, so stay tuned.
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.
So this is my new baby from Gucci.
I bought it last week and I have literally been wearing it ever since. I bought it in the Gucci store at ‘Strøget’, I had been looking at the model for a while, and then finally I had a day off work and decided to give myself a nice gift. Nothing can bring a woman more happiness like a high fashioned materialistic bag. That was a joke.
But I will admit that this bag really have given me a true sense of joy every time I have looked at it. Another thing I like about buying designer things vintage or not, is that I always have to work hard and save a lot of money to afford a bag like this.
And I know that it maybe sounds stupid, but it really gives me the feeling of being a true power woman.
Hello ladies and gents
So, last thursday me and my friend and blogger Melissa went out for a little shopping in the city.
And I tell you guys, it have literally been raining all summer here in Copenhagen and last thursday was no exception.
But we had a nice time anyway, we stopped by a lot of high end vintage stores, got a little break at kaf’ bar 9, and I finally got myself a little something from the gucci store.
And of course I will reveal what I got very soon.
And hey check out Melissa’s new blog post as well right here.
Pyjamas shirt // thrifted Shoes // Asos Bag // Louis Vuitton T-shirt // H&M Sunglasses & accessories // Random internet shops.
So I’ve found this old pyjamas shirt in the men’s section, in my local thrift shop.
It’s basically only old people who shops in that thrift store, so the staff always look weird at me when I enter the store. But whatever. I’ve found a bunch of nice things in that store, but the first thing I thought I would share with you guys is this champagne coloured pyjamas blouse. It’s pretty lit.
it’s been a while since me and Melissa took these photos, but they still need to see the light here on the blog.
There’s nothing like a cute summer dress on a hot day.
On this day, me and Melissa went crazy in a vintage store to find a good old-fashioned summer dress. We both decided to style the dresses with at pair of heels. You know, it’s summertime, so why not show some skin. And, let’s be real, heels just makes your legs look even better.
But yeah.. I hope you enjoy the pictures, and btw Melissa just started her own blog so check it out right here.
Hello ladies and gents!
So yesterday I received this cute little poster from Modern map art and I promised to do a review, so that I will do.
Personally, I think that the print matches any kind of minimalistic/Scandinavian home. It’s simple, but it still has a bit of personality, because you can choose the city you were born in, or maybe a city you wanna go to? how knows.
Modern map art makes a lot of cool maps, so it’s just going to their website right here, and check out all the cute posters.
I chose the smallest size, so I could use for my bulletin board in my work area and I think it fits in perfectly.
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 post here on blog, and I finally interviewed my best friend Anna here. But this time there will be a new little add to the post, if you scroll down you can see the video of the interview that we did.
And I must admit that I really enjoy making Youtube videos lately, and I have been thinking about taking Youtube a little more seriously, so hehe stay tuned, and remember to subscribe and all that jazzz 😉
But 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 threewords. Sustainable, cosy, 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 yourstyle? 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.
Favouritebrands? That would be Dr. Martens. Most of my Dr. Martens shoes are thrifted 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 favourite items in yourwardrobe? My coat, my black jeans, and my shoe collection that primarily consists of Dr. Martens boots.
Which items do you dream ofowning? None, I have everything I need.
What is your best styletip? Choose a colour or a statement piece when putting together an outfit and finish it of 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 colours at the same time, do it!
Thanks to Anna
If you wanna watch the interview, it’s available down below.
So I know I have been the worst blogger in the world lately, but I have been so busy with school and everything so…. yeah.
And I’m really depressed by the fact that it takes all of my focus, so I’m actually just looking forward to be done with this study, so I can get back to blogging again.
But! I bought some new sneakers (kicks) in London, so I thought why not show you guys a little outfit with them on.
Hope you all are well, and has the best sunday ever.
So I’m so sorry that I haven’t been around lately here on the blog.
But I have been so stressed out whit School so…yeah.
But here is the vlogs from our trip to London, we both been to London before so this was just a.. cozy shopping trip I guess…and not so much a sightseeing trip.
But yeah.. we had a really nice time and we can’t wait for our next trip together.
I hope you guys like the vlogs, please leave a comment or subscribe if you do 😉
I don’t know about you guys, but I really have an obsession with earrings at the moment, especially gold earrings.
So I thought, why not share my little obsession with you guys!
All the earrings in my collage are pretty affordable, which is an added bonus! So yeah… I don’t know why I’m excited like this… but it may have something to do with the espresso that Im drinking in the middle of the night.
So not much has happened lately… and honestly, it’s because I’m lazy as fuck.
I have, however, just received some pretty exciting samples of something I’m working on, which I can’t wait to show you guys! But I’m gonna have to wait for a while, because it has to be perfect. And I also have to figure out what I want to do with it, before I show you the final product.
Let’s talk about the pictures. The pictures were taken yesterday, and the gorgeous faces you see in the pictures are the faces of two of my very best friends.
And we thought, because we all love to take photos like everyone else in this Instagram world. Why not take some squad photos will we’re strolling around the city anyway? So we did.
And I have to say, I really like the final product :3
But… what am I thinking about? it could only turn out good with these two lovely ladies in front of my camera.
SO! a lot of things had happened since the last time I was active here on the blog.
The blog had a breakdown for over a week because of some trouble in the cyber system (I don’t know what smart people would call it, but let’s just call it that ) which was pretty fucking annoying.
But now I’m back, finally.
But, besides that I have officially quitted my job! which I’m sure was the right thing for me to do. Not that I didn’t like the job and the most of my colleagues! but I could feel that it was time for me to change course.
So now I’m starting with a little study class here at the end of February. And after that I am hopefully going to be qualified enough to get a job that is just calling my name… even though we all know that job doesn’t exist, but let’s just pretend that it does.
And even when you thought things couldn’t get any worse… one of my absolutely best friends and I, seems to have broken up in some kinda way…. I can’t describe how mad and irritated I am, because of that little b****. And I have been trying to be the grown one in this mess ( not that I am right now ), and not delete/untag all instagram memories we had together…. like she did. But I’m just a human… and I couldn’t take the try-hard attitude anymore, so I just unfollowed her on Instagram. And then all the drama just went even worse…. and today we are not even friends on Facebook. But the thing that irritates me the most is that she wouldn’t even talk about it, even before all of this social media drama… and then I can’t stop thinking ” why did I even waste my time on you? “. So maybe or friendship is over…. I don’t know, I just know that I’m not going be the one, to take action again and try to make it work… because I tried, and she shut all hope down so…But I’m not gonna lie, I’m still sad about us not being friends anymore.
But still in the end the weird thing is, that I’m actually feeling great about my whole life situation right now. Even though there has been some difficult things to handle. But honestly, I’m fine because I still have the absolute best people around me.
And for that I’m grateful, so that’s why I’m going dance like Beyonce now.
And just be happy about life.
Btw… sorry about this drama post, I just had to get it off my chest <3
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.
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.

So yesterday hvisk celebrated the opening of their new flagship store here in Copenhagen.
So me and my friend Melissa joined the celebration, and even though it was a small and cozy event, I have to say that it actually gave me a lot of new inspiration.
The shop is so cute.. It’s small and filled with elegant and play full jewelry…. and a random thing I was very exited about, was the selling… its such an old Copenhagen each.. style selling and I’m literally just in love with it.
Btw, there is up to 70% sale on their website right now, so go check that out.
So I know its been a couple of days since we all jumped into the new year.
But, a lot of things have been going on lately, so that why I haven’t been more active here on the blog and I’m sorry for that.
But whatever, I hope that you guys had a nice time on New Years Eve surrounded by your loved once.
Personally, I celebrated the evening at my friend Anna’s apartment, which has this amazing view over the ocean and the city, so we could enjoy the beautiful fireworks fully.
But otherwise, we were about 10 people eating a vegan dinner together, which was so pretty delicious! And of course after that, we drank a lot of champagne, and actually a lot of mojitos too.
So we got drunk and me and my girls were just singing old R&N songs all night long.
And when the clock were 00:00 I kissed my man into the new year of course.
Pssssst! guys! if you click on the pictures of the outfits, you will be sent to the webpage Polyvore where you can finde all the Items!
So New years eve is coming up, I mean of course we just have to pass Christmas…but for me Christmas isn’t that big of a deal. I mean in my family it’s pretty much just the national “dress up in a Christmas jumper day”… so I already know what to wear for Christmas. But for me New Years Eve is always a hard day to find the perfect outfit…. because you wanna look even better than the fireworks in the sky, but at the same time you don’t wanna look like someone that is trying too hard, right?
That’s why I’m dressing casually this year, but with a small twist in every outfit. You know just to spice it up a little bit.
So yeah, I hope that my outfits can be helpful for you guys.
Btw I’m celebrating New Years eve with a little group of my good friends… what are you guys doing for New Years eve?
At the moment I’m feeling blessed that I have such good people around me… lately I have ben thinking to myself “you are a god damn lucky girl, appreciate it!” And I would say that I definitely do..
But yeah… this is just at little out and about outfit with my “bag sister” Ekua. I love that girl… she always makes me laugh, and are such and inspirational person.
So lately I have bought a lot of new stuff… but these sneakers are defiantly one of my favorite items of all time.
I’ve been searching for them for so long and finally I found them in the footlocker shop in Copenhagen… and the best part of the story is that I got them 500kr cheaper than the original price!
But yeah, I’m just so happy about these babies.
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?
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.
With the picture ready for editing, i start off by enabling the “auto-editing” function. I then use the fade-filter.
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.
We now move on to use the Instagram app itself. In here, I turn down the heat of the picture.
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.
So lately Aliexpress.com has become one of my best friends, especially when it comes to small home decor items.
Because you know… that site has a lot of nice small bits and pieces, that’s actually very affordable!
And today I was surfing around on the site, and I came up with these items for you guys.
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… 😉 “
So I’m finally back with a new show me your style post here on the blog.

First of all… I know that the headline doesn’t describe what this post actually contains, but sorry I’m not in a creative mood today.
I just want you guys to know why I haven’t been more out and about here on the blog lately, and there are actually a few reasons.
1) I work a lot.
2) People that I give my heart to, just don’t know what to do with it.
Yes, I work a lot, but it’s not the work in itself that’s been keeping me away from the blog lately…. The thing is that I’m disappointed. Disappointed by a lot of people… situations in my life… and yes by myself, cause I always blame myself (that’s just who I am).
Well… the thing is, there are very few people that I actually give my heart to, but when I do… I’m a 100% in it. And by that I don’t necessarily mean like a “relationship”, it means that I would probably do anything in the world, to make that special person happy… no matter what…. And when you feel that way about someone and they don’t see why you feel like you do, it can be difficult.
So as you maybe can hear I have been let down by a guy…. or actually more than one.
The first one, had never been in my cards and we tried to force feelings that weren’t actually there, and it ended very badly… and now we haven’t been talking for a long time… because it ended , because I shared something very private about myself and he kind of just took off after that. It left me with the feeling that I wasn’t good enough as a person, and that was just fucked up. And struggling with that thought in my head while I was working, left me with less focus on my work which I hated myself for, cause no matter what I work with, I always want to do my best, and I just felt that I couldn’t do that at the time. However, the time passed and I finally got emotionally stable again… and I felt that I was ready to discover a new meaningful person in my life.
And I met one… in a place I never thought I would find him… a person that I until a couple of hours ago, thought was a person that I maybe could have the honour to get to know even better. We have met a couple of times and I really enjoyed his company, and honestly, my impression was that he liked my company too. He told me a lot of things, that made me feel kinda special and a bit overwhelmed… and weird enough it meant the world to me, even though I didn’t know him… because I’m not gonna lie he gave me a storm of butterflies in my stomach, every time we talked.
But as everything seemed to go very well, something happened…And honestly, I don’t know what it was.. cause I just texted him like “hey” because I was bored…. and then he suddenly was like, “I think that we want different things” and now it feels like he doesn’t want to see me anymore. And it hurts, it really does, cause it just came out of the blue, so it was kind of a shock to me. And we had just talked yesterday, about seeing each other again this week, so I thought… or still think, that it’s so shocking that he just all of a sudden doesn’t want to see me anymore…. And I’m still here hoping that he one day will, cause I don’t know but there was just something very right about him…. even though he just ended it out of the blue.
So now I’m just reading my story about what’s going on in my life lately, over and over and I still don’t quite understand it… not that anyone actually cares about my private life, but I really just had to get it out of my system, before I could think of anything else.
And yes.. I know that there’s probably someone out there reading this, thinking why do you want to share such private things about yourself on the internet? Well… a very good friend of mine always told me…. don’t be scared to tell anyone what you think or feel about something or someone, it’s your feelings and it is what it is. And if people can’t handle that it’s just too bad for them.
Keeping your feelings or thoughts to yourself, just because you think that people may laugh at you or think you’re pathetic… You know what? That’s just bullshit, cause people should be able to handle things like that if they want to be a part of your life. So.. Yeah, just, never be afraid of waiting to tell people what you think or feel.
The truth is always the best.
And that’s why I haven’t deleted his number or anything… cause even though it sounds sad (and it is) I’m kinda waiting for him to call or text me, even though I don’t really know if that’s ever gonna happen.
But what can I say, I’m still here… waiting.
