Jeg havde en meget interessant samtale med en af mine veninder fredag eftermiddag. Hun havde lige været på weekend tur i Amsterdam og sagde til mig “kender du det når man besøger et sted og med det samme får man en følelse af at man bare kunne leve der?” Det kender jeg bestemt. Det er ikke mange steder i verden man får det sådan med, ihvertfald ikke mig. Jeg mener, jo jeg synes da det er skønt at besøge Paris og jeg holder da meget af Milano, og når jeg f.eks. tager hjem til Silkeborg hvor jeg voksede op er det fantastisk fordi jeg elsker min familie men der er ingen af de steder der nogensinde har givet mig følelsen af at høre til som sådan. Det var lige indtil jeg mødte verdens berømte Los Angeles. Det var kærlighed ved første blik, jeg besøgte L.A første gang da jeg var 16 og det er det sted jeg har besøgt aller mest siden. Det får mig til at føle mig større, bedre, roligere, fri, som om jeg ikke kan gå i stykker og mange andre ting men det får mig også til at føle mig langt væk hjemmefra. Hvorfor kunne det ikke have været New York jeg var forelsket i?! Det er meget tættere på. Jeg bliver altid lidt blue når jeg kommer hjem fra L.A. Jeg græder endda når vi letter – hver eneste gang. Some things never change!

english: I had a very interesting conversation with one of my friends this friday afternoon. She had just visited Amsterdam on a weekend getaway and she said to me “you know when you really just get that feeling about a city, like you could really just be you there?”. I know exactly what thats like. It’s not many places in the world one feels that way about, not me at least. I mean sure I think Milan is wonderful and I love to visit Paris, and going home to Silkeborg where I grew up is fantastic because I love my family but non of those places has ever given me that sense of “belonging”. Until I met the famous Los Angeles. It was love at first sight, I visited the first time when I was 16 and it’s probably the place I have traveled to the most since then. It makes me feel, bigger, better, calmer, free, unbreakable and many more things but it also makes me feel far away from home. Why couldn’t it have been New York I fell in love with?! It’s so much closer. The L.A blues always come over me when I get home, I even cry on the plane as it takes of – every single time. Some things never change!

 “Efter L.A” depressionen er meget ægte i vores hjem lige nu. Jeg har så meget jetlag men det er okay for det var en vidunderlig tur! Jeg kan næsten ikke fatte at jeg bare i sidste uge rendte rundt i ingenting og at jeg lige nu sidder og tænker på hvilken jakke jeg skal have på ud i verdenen i dag. Der er vendt op og ned på det hele. Men i slipper ikke for sol og sommer på bloggen lidt endnu, der er stadig massere materiale tilbage. Her i en af mine nye favorit kjoler, er den ikke alt for skøn?! Både for sig selv men jeg er også ret forelsket i ideén om at style den med en bred ærmet hvid skjorte under. Enjoy!

english: The post L.A depression is very real at the moment, at our house. I am so jet lagged still but it’s alright, it was such a great trip. I can barely comprehend that I was just running around in bare nothing last week and today I am wondering what coat I should wear out. It’s all upside down. But you are not yet off the hook for some sun and summer on the blog, there is still tons of material left from L.A. Here, in one of my new favorite dresses, it’s it awesome?! I love it both as it is right here, by it self, but I also really dream of styling it with a wide sleeve white shirt underneath. Wouldn’t that look amazing? Enjoy!

At flyve er en ting jeg holder meget af. Lige fra at booke turen og pakke kufferten til at stå i lufthavnen og sidde i flyet. Det er alt sammen en del af oplevelsen når man rejser, det er ikke kun destinationen. Når man rejser lige så meget som mig prøver man alle mulige forskellige airlines og hver gang jeg skal prøve en ny en glæder jeg mig! Der er jo så mange! Denne gang havde vi fornøjelsen af at flyve med det nye WOW air til Los Angeles, et selskab jeg endnu ikke havde haft fornøjelsen af at flyve med. Jeg har dog længe gerne ville da jeg er helt besat af deres pink fly! De er selv super dygtige på sociale medier og har en sej instagram profil som gjorde jeg slet ikke kunne vente med at flyve med dem. WOW air er et islandsk lavprisselskab som specialisere sig i at flyve de lange ture til super billige priser. New York fra 1.985 kr, Boston fra 999 kr, San Fransisco fra 1.099 kr – I mean what? Jeg tager hatten af for at nogen har gjort det til sin vision at alle skal kunne være ægte globetrottere uden at smadre sin opsparing, det super god stil! Der er ikke TV skærme i sæderne på nogen af WOW’s fly men opladnings muligheder til både computer, ipad og telefon på hele rejsen! Og så er der god benplads. Jeg har ihvertfald et par steder på kloden jeg snart kan få krydset af når det er så billigt at komme dertil! TAK til WOW air for at gøre det muligt for os at komme til L.A! Det var en fornøjelse.

english: To fly is something I sincerely enjoy. From booking the trip and packing a suitcase to be in the airport and actually be in the plane. It’s all apart of the experience when traveling, it’s not just the destination. When you travel as much as I do you get to try tons of different airlines and everything I get to try one I haven’t tried before, I am so excited! There are so many! This time I had the pleasure of flying with the new airline, WOW air, to Los Angeles. An airline I had yet not had the pleasure of flying with. I have wanted to for a while though as I am just obsessed with their pink airplanes! Also they are super skilled at social media so I couldn’t wait to fly with them after seeing their profile on instagram. WOW air is an Icelandic low fare airline who specializes in flying the long routes for less money. New York from 1.985 kr, Boston from 999 kr, San Fransisco from 1.099 kr – I mean what? I applaud companies who makes it easier for people to live out their travel dreams without wrecking their wallets. There are no TV’s on the plane but plenty of charging stations for computer, iPad and iPhone for the whole trip! And good legroom! I have some places I now see possible to get crossed of my travel bucket list! Thank you WOW air for making it possible for us to fly yo L.A this easter! It was a pleasure!

L.A er hvor jeg bliver ladt op med inspiration. Alt jeg ser bliver til en idé. Atmosfæren, menneskene, farverne. Oh ja, alle farverne. Jeg får lyst til at male alt omkring mig i stærke farver, får i det hele taget bare lyst til at dyppe mig selv i farver. Stærkt farvet tøj, statement smykker – forskelligt farvet makeup? Kæmpe ja tak til det sidste! Jeg er helt forelsket i trenden om at bruge stærke farver i sin makeup. Dette makeup look er inspireret af farverige Venice Beach. Jeg har brugt en næsten ketchup farvet eyeliner og mascara for at gøre mine øjne super blå. Jeg har brugt en lettere koldt farvet blush direkte på mine kindben og hele vejen op til mine tindinger for at indramme ansigtet og virkelig lade blushen komme til sin ret. Den skal ikke have for lidt! På læberne har jeg blandet to lip paints, en beige og en nude bær farve. Den kombination er simpelthen så smuk synes jeg, lige til at bide i! Yum! Er jeg den eneste som er sulten?

english: L.A is inspiration central for me. My mind just wanders with everything I see. The vibe, the people, the colors. Ah yes the colors. I get a serious desire to paint everything around me in strong colors, I get a desire to dip myself in color actually. Strong colored clothes, statement jewelry – fun colored makeup? Hell yes to the last one. I am all over bold makeup these days. This look was inspired by the bold colors of Venice Beach. I used an almost ketchup colored liner and mascara to make my blue eyes pop. A strong trace of cool colored blush lined directly on the top of my cheekbones and going up into my temples for a strong outline of the face. For the lips I mixed a beige and a berry nude – I love the combo, it’s what I would call “bite-able”. Yum! Anybody else feeling hungry?

2 timer nord for Los Angeles ligger smukke Santa Barbara. Jeg havde endnu ikke selv været der men mine forældre har og sagde at jeg ville elske den lille spansk inspirerede by så, afsted med mig. Turen derop var skøn, svingende og der var smuk udsigt langt hen af vejen. Santa Barbara var ren og pæn med lave huse og en hyggelig shopping gade. Der var idyllisk og det var lige hvad jeg havde brug for. Et pusterum. Bevares, L.A er fantastisk, men den er også halv larmende, beskidt og fyldt med biler. Santa Barbara var noget helt andet. Midt i byen fandt vi denne fuldstændig betagende trappe. Jeg måtte bare få taget billeder på den, også selvom den var i fuld sol. Sådan noget kraftigt lys kan stadigvæk være lidt svært for mig at styre men det lykkedes heldigvis. Ellers skulle jeg have ventet hele dagen på at den kom i skygge for skydes, det skulle den.

english: 2 hours north of Los Angles lies the beautiful city of Santa Barbara. I hadn’t been there yet but my parents have and they said I would absolutely love it so, away I went. The ride up there was gorgeous as expected. The roads were curvy and the view was spectacular most of the way. Santa Barbara was beautiful, clean and heavily influenced by spanish culture. Yum! It was just what I needed, a breather. I mean, L.A is amazing no doubt but it’s also noisy, dirty and filled with cars. Santa Barbara is just the opposite. In the city center we found this beyond amazing set of stairs. I just HAD to get my photos taken on these steps even though the sun was coming down hard. I have to admit I still have trouble sometimes controlling harsh light like this but I managed. Luckily, otherwise we would have had to wait all day for the sun to move because I had to shoot on these stairs!
