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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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… 😉 “
Fall is on its way, so therefore I have recently found 10 jackets/coats… call them what you want…. but I think that all of them is perfect for the fall season, and the best part is that they are all under 50$! Yes, you heard right!
So go check them out.
