Efter en regnfuld (og bølge fuld) tur fra Phi Phi til Phuket er vi endelig ankommet til Old Phuket Town – et sted jeg har glædet mig rigtig meget til at besøge. Det er kendt for sine mange farverige facader og små finurlige gader med mange fine små unikke shops. Vi ankom sen eftermiddag i går og har brugt HELE dagen i dag på at tage billeder, der er så meget at fotografere og sindsygt mange fede locations til at skyde outfits, jeg burde have taget mere tøj med! HA! jokes – jeg har haft tøj med til en måned (mindst) for jeg vidste der ville være så mange muligheder for seje baggrunde, gader, huse osv. Alle på hotellerne har spurgt hvorfor jeg har så meget baggage med. I morgen er vi allerede videre mod vores sidste hotel som er et lufthavns hotel, vi flyver nemlig super tidligt torsdag morgen. Jeg har forresten fået flettet mit hår i dag, jeg glæder mig til at vise jer det i morgen! Stay tuned.

english: After a rainy (and slightly wavy) boat ride from Phi Phi to Phuket we have finally arrived in Old Phuket Town – a place I have been very much looking forward to visiting. It’s known for it’s colorful facades and quirky little streets with many cute and unique shops. We arrived late afternoon yesterday and we have spend the entire day today taking photos to our blogs, there is so much to photograph and so many awesome locations for outfits, I should have brought more clothes! HA! jokes – I brought clothes with me to fit a month (at least) I knew there would be so many awesome backgrounds, streets, houses and so on. All hotels we have stayed at have asked why I have so much luggage. Tomorrow we are already on the road again, this time to our last stop – an airport hotel – we fly super early Thursday so it just makes more sense. I got my hair braided today BTW, I can’t wait to show you tomorrow. Stay tuned.

Phi Phi har taget mig med storm, på dette tidspunkt er jeg sikker på, at jeg kunne blive her for evigt. Holiday Inn Resort har virkelig været en oplevelse. Jeg har rejst mange steder i verden, opholdt mig på utallige hoteller, dyre som billige, men ingen af dem har været helt som dette. Jeg har følt mig meget hjemme de sidste par dage, hvilket ikke er let for mig at føle da jeg ikke er så tilpas i nye omgivelser. Personalet er sjovt, venligt og hjælpsomt – men ikke på den typiske robot måde, nej, på den måde, der føles som om de virkelig går op i at du har det godt og det skinner gennem hele resortet. Fra gartneren til receptionisten er der bare smil overalt – ikke en sur mine i syne. Alt udendørs areal er super vedligeholdt – ikke engang et blad ligger i vejen for dig og skulle det være tilfældet så bliver de fejet væk med det samme, også i blæse vejr. Deres bungalows er rummelige, rene og dekoreret i god smag, alt er super foto venligt (vigtigt!), holdt i sort og creme, så de grønne palmer og det blå hav virkelig kommer til sin ret. Arkitekturen passer smukt ind i naturen, noget som meget få hoteller formår at opnå og noget jeg tager hatten af for, særligt når man er så privilegeret at ligge lige på en strand. Du kan vælge flere værelsestyper, hvis du ønsker at bo lige på stranden, som vi gjorde kan du vælge en beachfront bungalow (det sidste foto var vores beach bungalow), eller du kan klatre højere op og vælge en bungalow med havudsigt eller hvis du kan lide jungle stemning kan du bo i en af de fantastiske garden view bungalows. Maden på resort er super, du kan få virkelig god klassisk thai mad, men også det vestlige køkken er helt okay. Jeg spiser (af princip) aldrig pizza eller burgere når jeg er i Asien, fordi jeg elsker den lokale mad (og fordi de ofte ikke kan finde ud af at lave det), men jeg prøvede det for at sammenligne og de gør det faktisk rigtig godt og jeg er kræsen med kvaliteten af min mad! De har også mad til vegetarer og endda veganere. Udover alt dette har de også en infinity-pool, et rigtig godt fitness center, et spa, tonsvis af aktiviteter og den smukkeste strand jeg nogensinde har set – der er så mange flere ting at sige om dette sted, men jeg kan ikke blive ved, så det sidste jeg vil sige er; bare gøre det – det alle pengene værd.

 english: Phi Phi has taken me by storm, at this point I am certain that I could stay here forever. Holiday Inn resort has truly been an experience, I have traveled to many places in the world, stayed at countless hotels, expensive and cheap but non of them has been quite like this. Besides from the fact that Phi Phi island is breathtaking, the resort is something else. I have felt very much at home these last few days, something that is not easy for me to feel as I am not very comfortable in new surroundings. The staff is funny, kind and helpful – but not in the typical robotic way, no, in the way that feels like they really care about you and it just shines all the way through the resort. From the gardener to the front desk service there are just smiles everywhere – not a frown in sight. The outdoor space is so well maintained – not even a leaf will be in your way, they are sweeped up immediately, even when it’s windy. The bungalows are spacious, clean and decorated with good taste, everything here is super photo friendly (important!), kept in black and cream so the green palm trees and the blue ocean can really stand out, the architecture of the place really suits the nature which I really admire, very few hotels and resorts succeed in complimenting their surroundings. You can choose several room types, if you want to stay right on the beach like we did you can choose a beachfront bungalow (the last photo was our beach bungalow), or you can climb higher and choose sea view or if you like a bit of a jungle feel you can stay at the amazing garden view bungalows. Also the food at the resort is great, you can get really good classic thai food but also western cuisine if you are more in the mood for a clubsandwich, I never eat pizza or burgers when in Asia because I just love the local food but I tried it to compare (for you of course) and they make great western food as well – and I am picky with my food! They also have choices for vegetarians and even vegans. Other than that they have an infinity pool, a great gym, a spa, tons of activities and the most beautiful beach I have ever seen – so many things to say about this place so what I will say; just do it – it’s worth every penny.

Jeg er ovenud tilfreds med resort livet, lige nu er jeg ikke så sikker på jeg nogensinde vil fra denne ø. Phi Phi er fantastisk, resortet er smukt og menneskene her er de sødeste. I går fik Sebastian og jeg en rumpefuld til Muay Thai (thai boxning) af resortets to mega seje (og hårde) personlige trænere, derefter svømmede vi os en lang tur for at køle ned og jeg afsluttede dagen med 2 timers massage, hvis hver dag bare kunne være sådan. I dag har solen skinnede smukt og jeg har taget en masse fine billeder af stedet som jeg glæder mig til at vise jer i morgen når vi er på vej mod fastlandet igen. Snøft!

english: I am so happy with our time at the resort, right now I am not sure I ever want to get of this island. Phi Phi is amazing, the resort is beautiful and the people here are just the nicest. Yesterday Sebastian and I got our asses kicked in Muay Thai class by the super skilled and awesome personal trainers at the resort, after, we swam to cool down and I ended the day with a 2 hour massage, I wish everyday could be like that. Today the sun shined bright so I have taken alot of photos of the resort that I will show you tomorrow when vi depart from Phi Phi  and return to the mainland again. Sniffles!

I dag er vi ankommet til Phi Phi hvor vi, indtil på mandag, skal bruge vores dage på det smukke Holiday Inn resort. Jeg gik total snapchat amok da jeg ankom, alt var så smukt og resortet er sindsygt instagram venligt (thank god!) – vandet er det smukkeste og solnedgangen var præcis som på film – er det ikke derfor så mange mennesker tager hertil? Vi er blevet placeret i en beach bungalow som ligger i første række ned til / på stranden, det er vild luksus! Jeg glæder mig til at udforske stedet i morgen, men en lille yoga time eller to skal der også presses ind! Stay tuned for flere updates omkring dette fantastiske sted.

english: Today we have arrived at Phi Phi island where we, until monday, will be spending our days at the beautiful Holiday Inn resort. I went total snapchat crazy when we arrived, everything is so beautiful here and the resort is so instagram friendly (thank god!) – the water is breathtaking and the sunset was excatly like in the movies – isn’t that why so many people come here? We have our own beach bungalow right on the beach, it’s very luxurious – I am very much looking forward to exploring the place tomorrow but a tiny yoga class or two wont hurt nobody! Stay tuned for more updates on this magical place.

 Det er SÅ varmt her, i har ingen ide – og mit hår har det ’super’ med det fugtige klima – afro everywhere. Lidt som da Monica (fra friends) var i Barbados og hendes hår blev gigantisk – det er mig, “it’s the humidity!” men jeg vidste godt det ville ske, bare en smule regnvejr i Danmark kan få mit hår til at slå ud som en oversize paraply. Indtil videre har vi ikke haft så meget sol men egentlig fungere det rigtig godt for billederne og de store regnskyl er sindsygt hyggelige, jeg er også ret vild med at her næsten ingen turister er lige nu – det er en anelse befriende. I morgen tager vi mod Phi Phi! Stay tuned.

english: It is SO hot here, you have no idea! And my hair is really taking in the humidity – afro everywhere. Just like when Monica (from friends) went to Barbados and her hair just got gigantic – thats me, “it’s the humidity!” but I knew this would happen, just a tiny bit of rain in Denmark makes my hair as big as an oversize umbrella. So far we haven’t had much sun but it actually works quite well (picture wise) and the giant rains are just so fascinating! Oh and I love how here is no tourists, it’s kinda liberating. Tomorrow we are headed for Phi Phi – stay tuned!

Så er vi her endelig, mange timers rejse og vi er fremme. Vi havde desværre en forsinkelse så stor i København at vi missede vores fly som ville have gjort at vi var her i mandags men efter nogle timer på hotel i Doha og en lur eller tre er vi nu her på Kata Beach, vores første stop. Selvom himlen er lidt grå så er humøret højt og vi glæder os helt vildt til at udforske og få taget en masse seje billeder, husk i kan følge med på snappen; mariajernov.

english: We are finally here, many hours of traveling and we have arrived. We got so delayed in Copenhagen that we missed our original flight to Phuket, so we had to spend some hours at a hotel in Doha and we just landed this morning, oh well shit happens, we are now at Kata Beach our first stop. Eventhough the sky is a little grey we are just so excited to explore and take a lot of photos, remember you can follow our day on snapchat; mariajernov.

SUGARING VS. WAXING

IMG_0809

IMG_0811

Signe Heindorf clinique in Store Kongensgade, Copenhagen

“Blod, sved og tåre” kan linkes til mange ting her ikke livet og ikke kun til vejen til succes og dette ved du hvis du nogensinde har fået lavet en bikini wax, av. For at være hudløs ærlig (speaking of), så er smerte ikke lige min “ting” og jeg er lidt en tøsetøs så når jeg laver et indlæg som dette er jeg nødt til at virkelig skrive hvad jeg mener fordi hvad vil i ellers få ud af det? Jeg fik en brazillian wax for et par år siden, jeg var lige begyndt at se sex and the city og alle fik dem så jeg ville også! Det gjorde så ondt og var så slemt at jeg selv den dag i dag tager jeg skuldrene op om ørene og nærmest løber forbi klinikkerne. Så hørte jeg om det her “sugaring” og hvordan det “overhovedet ikke gjorde ondt” – og så tænkte jeg at det var tid at prøve igen, særligt nu når der er en ferie lige rundt om hjørnet. Jeg tog hen til Signe Heindorfs klinik i hjertet af København for at prøve lykken og blev mødt af Bianca som skulle hjælpe mig igennem behandlingen. Hun var sød og sjov og gjorde det hele meget mere komfortabelt, der er ærlig talt intet værre end den stille type når du ingen bukser har på. Awkward… Flip flap, ship shap og så var det hele væk, bare sådan. Og jo det gjorde ondt – jeg vil ikke bilde folk ind det slet ikke gør ondt for det gør det MEN det gjorde på ingen måde lige så ondt (og man bliver ikke forbrændt) som når man bliver vokset. Jeg fik lidt olie på og så var jeg good to go – ingen brændende fornemmelse, ingen blod og ingen dårlig oplevelse og det bedste ved det hele er at det nu er 3 dage siden at jeg fik det gjort og der er ingen rødme, ingen knopper eller anden reaktion, det er bare blødt og glat. Tænk engang! Hvis du går og tænker på at få det lavet her til sommer så gør det! Du bliver glad for det og det er den lille smule smerte værd.

english: “Blod, sweat and tears” apply to many things in life, not only success – and you would know this if you have ever had a bikini wax, ouch. To be honest, pain is not my thing, I am a bit of a wimp and when writing a review/comparison like this I must be honest, or else what will you get out of it? I got a brazillian wax a couple of years ago because I just started watching sex and the city and well..everybody got them and I wanted to be apart of the team. It was awful and to this day I still cringe every time I walk by a waxing place. So I suddenly had very big ears when I started to hear about “sugaring” and how it “didn’t hurt at all” – so I decided to try it as preparation for my upcoming vacation. I went to Signe Heindorfs clinique in the heart of Copenhagen and was met by Bianca who was going to get me through this experience. She was sweet and funny and made it all less uncomfortable, there is nothing worse than the silent type when you don’t have your pants on. Awkward… Flip flap, ship shap and the hair was gone, just like that. And yes it hurt – I won’t try telling people it doesn’t because it does hurt BUT not at much as waxing does, because that sh** will scar (and burn) you for life, it did me anyway. I got oiled up and then I was good to go – no burning, no bleeding and no horrible experience and the best part is that it is now 3 days since I got the treatment and there has been no redness, bumps or any other reaction – it’s just smooth! Thank god. If you are thinking about getting it done as a summer treat to yourself I would say do it, it’s worth the little pain and the result is beautiful, you will love it!

CABIN BEAUTY

IMG_0777

Hvordan min håndbaggage er pakket og hvad jeg husker at få med mig ombord er alfa og omega for en god flyvetur! Særligt når det kommer til beauty, jeg skal bruge nogle meget specifikke ting for at overleve lange flyture og her er nogle af mine must haves at have med ombord.

english: How my hand luggage is packed and what I remember to take with my aboard is kinda what makes or breaks the trip for me. Especially when it comes to beauty, I need some very specific items to survive a long flight – so here are my must haves aboard!

1. Hand sanitizer
Oh gosh ew! Everything in the airport and on the plane is ew, so many people touching everything that you touch all the time – I am not usually very focused on germs (my friends would actually call me quite the pig) but at the airport I am suddenly very aware of the amount of people present and therefore also the germs!
Dr. Bronner, Hand sanitizer, shop here

2. Dry spots
What is up with these? Why do you suddenly get a dry patch on your face, arm or leg when you are on a plane? Sometimes my chin just dries up like a raisin so I always carry a very heavy cream to get me through these situations.
Egyptian Magic, Skin cream, shop here

3. Clean mouth
If you are on a overnight flight it can be nice to brush your teeth in the “morning”, gives you that fresh feeling.
Bamboo toothbrush, shop here

4. Care package
Cue tips, nail file and cotton pads – this little package is a life savor! How else are you going to remove mascara dust from under your eyes or fix a broken nail – I usually find these at hotels and bring them with me or I make a little care package from home with the essentials.

5. Sleep tight
Some people just don’t get that when it gets dark in the cabin you should turn your light off too! It’s nap time partner, take a hint! A sleep mask always saves my butt and this one is to die for!
Yolke at Fulldisclosureluxe.com, Eyemask, shop here 

6. Kiss me quick
Maybe the cabin pressure makes your lips dry or you sit next to a cute guy but whatever the reason a good lip balm is a must, this lavender scented beauty is my forever favorite!
Badeanstalten, Lip balm, shop here

7. Dry clean
A greasy scalp can happen to anybody who is in and out of planes and airports so just take this little helper with you and you will be just fine, I promise.
Colab, Dry shampoo, shop here

8. Bright eyes
The only makeup I bring with me aboard is a concealer, it can fix anything from tired eyes to a sudden pimple who appeared out of the blue (you know it was that plane food).
Nars, Radiant creamy concealer, shop here 

9. Hydration central
A good hand creme is great to use after you have sanitized all the germs away! Keep you soft and smooth for the whole flight and it smells great!
Psst.. Karmameju has a whole section on their website for travel size only!
Karmameju, Chill hand and bodylotion, shop here

10. Bag it up
Last but certainly not least of course you need a pretty little cabin makeup bag to keep your emergency kit in place.
Adax, Makeup clutch, shop here
