Starting this year off with a little trip to Arizona, I needed to see some more desert, it’s so pretty and the air is so clean. It’s also warmer here. It’s raining ALL the time in Los Angeles. I have never spend time in LA in January and February and so far I am not loving it. It’s so wet! But oh who cares, LA is still the bomb and I’ll take it wet over anywhere anytime.
I am exploring the desert but also Scottsdale which is a part of Phoenix that I haven’t been to before. I’ll do a little restaurant tip or something before I return to LA on sunday – I love exploring new places! It’s so fun to do a little get away, there is so much to see!
December came and went, I thought about writing some “what to get your this and that for Christmas” but honestly I didn’t really feel like it and hey, it’s after all my blog so I can do as I please. It’s kinda awesome. In the past I have been more active on my blog than I have on Instagram and for a while it was very 50/50. Now I find myself liking Instagram more as a platform because it’s so direct and I can really connect with you guys. I get messages in my DM daily about things you love that I do, or stuff you miss which is awesome feedback. That doesn’t mean I won’t be blogging, because I also love my blog and love sharing picture filled stories and write a little more than just the one caption. So don’t worry neither is going anywhere. I am of course writing “don’t worry” as I have gotten several messages on IG about my absence here on the blog in December. But you know what? Sometimes I just need a break, and often when I’m on a blogging break just means I am working on something else and that’s fun too!
It’s now 2019, Christmas was nice, New Years was nice and here we are again, it’s January. Probably the weirdest month of the year. I love new years resolutions tho, also love sharing them so I will, once I get back to LA. Right now I am sitting in a big bed in a beautiful hotel room at the Nobis Hotel in the heart of Coco. Feels like home even though it’s the first time I stay here. I’ll share my hotel experience with you in one of my TIP posts, cause it’s worth writing about. Anyway – I am off to a couple of meetings now and then tomorrow I will be on a plane home to LA. Can’t wait.

On the road again! I can’t believe I have already been here for 3 months, it’s insane how time flies. Why is it no one tells you that as a child? If I could I would tell younger me to appreciate how far away Christmas seemed all the time, and how loooong away my birthday always was in my mind. Cause now, a year is over as soon as I blink my eyes. It’s insane. It’s almost Christmas again and I will be in Copenhagen once again. This time staying with my bestie B. I can’t wait to see her again, she is one of those people I feel best seeing at least every two days. That’s a bit hard when I am here and she is there. But someday, we’ll be neighbors, our kids will play together and our husbands will be the best of friends. We’ve already agreed on that.
These photos were taken at one of my favorite places in LA, the Disney Concert Hall. An architectural wonder if you ask me and definitely worth the ride to downtown. My dad took me there when we visited LA together and even though I had at that point been to LA many times, I never saw it and now every time I drive by it, it makes me miss him. He always has the best eye for beauty and he has thought me to see it in just about anything.
It will be so nice to spend almost a total of 5 weeks in Denmark and then return to LA again in January. I will once again be flying with my favorite pink airline WOW air. I leave today and can’t wait to be in the air once again, they always spoil me rotten with big seats and lots of food. It’s so nice. If you need to visit LA in the new year, be sure to check out WOW air’s amazing prices here.
Thank you for tuning in friends, I’ll be back once I’m home in Denmark again.

So we found them, the famous trashcans. Word has it that they move around, and I said to Birgitte – “while you are here we should really see if we can find those Gucci trash cans”. About two hours later we take a short cut, trying to cut the traffic by going behind the bigger roads and suddenly B says (totally calm btw), “isn’t that them?” and she points into an alley and there they were, the gucci trashcans. I of course almost crashed the car in pure excitement but we survived. Thank god, otherwise how could we have photographed them?! That is the question. I guess everything happens for a reason.
I have gotten a ton of questions about these jeans on instagram, because I wear them all the time on my story and it seems you guys want to know where they are from. Well the denim it self is from Weekday, so the original pant was from Weekday. They make the best jeans honestly, I don’t care how many super expensive jean brands there are, Weekday rules. The quality is unbeatable. I have then cut off the top of the pants (the button too) and slit the jeans by the knees and I tore open the bottom. Then I washed them 5 times and now they look like this. I absolutely love them and live in them several days a week.
When the year comes to an end, one of my favorite things to think about for the new year is “where will I travel?”. Obviously there are an insane amount of places I still want to see, I mean even though I am and have been extremely privileged – I’m just still so hungry for the world.
I have been so lucky in 2018 to travel to some amazing places. China had been on the top of my list for YEARS, walking on that wall was a memory for life and I finally got to see Bali. I spent time in Cannes with my best girlfriends and I got to return to LA once again. And that’s just some of the travels I did.
Lately I’ve had this idea of seeing Australia again, I went there for 5 weeks when I was 12 cause we are so lucky to have family there but since that’s over 10 years ago (omg right) – I’d love to go again. What I’d really like to combine it with is my next trip to Bali and when I say next I mean next cause boy am I going back there. There are very few places that I just must go back to. So far in my life I have ever only felt that way about Los Angeles, but after visiting Bali I am afraid the same thing has happened to me. I guess it’s kinda the same feeling about movies right? Some you say, “wow great movie, but I need some time before I watch it again” or “It was wonderful but I don’t think I will need to watch it again” and then there are just some that make you go “I’ll watch that again tomorrow” cause they are just that good. So far, Los Angeles is my “pretty woman” and Bali is my “eat pray love” – actually never thought about those both being Julia Roberts movies, strange.
But! New years are also for new places, and there are many of those too, I’d like to see. On the list is currently, Hawaii, Mexico (many places in Mexico), the Caribbean, a roadtrip in Italy, Tokyo or Hong Kong (or both) and Canada. Canada is quite different than the others I admit, but I have always wanted to see Vancouver and there are so many fantastic places to ski in Canada and since I’ve never tried that – it has become a priority. Luckily my always partner-in-crime WOW air has just launched Vancouver as a new destination, read more about it here. They also fly to Montréal and Toronto so basically I am ready to get Canada’fied!
In other news and still speaking of WOW air, they will be opening up their very first route to Asia in 2019 and I am so excited. They will start flying to New Dehli, India – can you believe it? I used to think I never wanted to see India, but as I have gotten older, it moves higher and higher up on my list. I would love to go to New Dehli, drive in the streets, discover their amazing kitchen, see the Taj Mahal in Agra and from there travel to the country side to meditate and stay at one of their amazing healing and spa facilities. Obviously I will still be going back and forth between LA and CPH a lot, it’s like being divided between two, but it’s okay. I love LA just as much as I love my home so I will be boarding that pink plane many times again in 2019. Oh so many dreams and so many places to go, one can only hope to see it all.
