Milano er fuld af de fineste sporvogne, både nye som gamle. De nye er super sleek, køre hurtigt og er ikke særlig kønne i den ellers så smukke by. De gamle er helt helt gamle. Ægte gamle. Med brune træsæder, messing håndtag og meget lav hastighed. Mine yndlings er dem som er indrettet lidt retro som denne. Pastel farvede sæder, 60’er inspirerede vinduer og medium fart. Disse billeder er taget lige efter et besøg hos Gucci HQ som ligger ret langt væk fra indre Milano. Laura synes jeg passede så fint i mit lyseblå til alt det lysegule og kunne slet ikke lade være at fotografere. Det er så tilfredsstillende når en fotomulighed bare opstår af sig selv og billederne bliver fede i stedet for alt altid skal planlægges. Lige nu sidder jeg hjemme i min stue i København og er ved at planlægge Paris modeugen, det bliver så spændende men det er nu også rart at være hjemme.

english: Milan is filled with the cutest trams, both new and old. The new ones are sleek, drive fast and are not a very pretty addition to the beautiful city. The old ones are really old. I mean SUPER old. They have brown wooden seats, brass handles and they are slow. My favorite ones are the ones that are quite retro like this one. Pastel colored seating, 60’s style windows and medium speed. These photos were taken right after our visit at Gucci HQ which is located quite far from inner Milan. Laura just loved the light blue, pastel yellow combo and had to take some photos. Its such a satisfaction when you just bump into a photo opportunity like this, I don’t like to plan absolutely everything. Right now I am just here, in my living room in Copenhagen and about to plan Paris FW this friday. It’s gonna be so much fun but it’s also so nice to be home.

Et lækkert brand som Missoni har selvfølgelig også lækkert hår og lækker makeup. Jeg var så heldig at blive inviteret backstage af Moroccanoil for at fange dette kaos og se det blive til Missoni magi. Jeg tog Laura med mig så vi både kunne fotografere og filme samtidig (video coming right up!). Modellerne var søde, stemningen var afslappet næsten kontrolleret og rummet duftede af Moroccanoil’s ikoniske argan oil. Looket var rent og lod pigernes individuelle skønhed tale for sig selv. Håret var et klassisk, super skarpt, glansfuldt, venstre til højre sideskildnings look som fik alle modellerne til at se sunde og stilede ud. Den glans de havde var for vild. Hårstylisterne tog kedeligt (over ophedet) model hår og gjorde det til lange, silkeagtige lokker kun ved brug af et par produkter og en hårtørre. Jeg anede ikke at man kunne tørre allerede tørt hår? Who knew?! Kollektionen var så smuk. Farverig, legesyg og rigtig Missoni agtig. Det var en sand fornøjelse at være en del af denne oplevelse.

english: A yummy brand like Missoni of course also has yummy hair and yummy makeup. I was so lucky to be invited backstage by Moroccanoil to capture this controlled chaos turning into Missoni magic. I brought Laura with me so that we could both take pictures and film (video coming right up!). The models were sweet, the vibe was calm and the whole room smelled like Moroccanoil’s iconic argan oil. The look was clean, letting the girls’ individual beauty speak for it self. The hair was a classic sharp cut, super sleek, left to right parted look making the models look healthy and chic. The shine was incredible, I was mesmerized as the hairstylists transformed dull (over worked) model hair into sleek, long, shiny locks using only a few products and a good hairdryer. Who knew you can actually blow-dry already dry hair? The collection was absolutely beautiful. Colorful, playful and true Missoni. It was such a pleasure to be apart of this experience.

OH det følelses nærmest som forår i Milano! Temperaturen er helt perfekt – det er strik vejr. Med det her outfit vil jeg gerne demonstrere hvordan jeg bruger både min vinter garderobe og min sommer garderobe. Smelter den sammen om man vil. Min yndlings strik, tilsat de jeans jeg “tilfældigvis” bare hopper i hele tiden og en af mine yndlings sommer kjoler. Det er selvfølgelig alt for koldt til kun at bruge kjolen lige nu men jeg vil SÅ gerne alligevel – så må jeg jo få den til at fungere til denne tid på året. Hvordan gør man det? Jo man sætter det hele sammen! Why not? Det eneste jeg har gjort er at fjerne underkjolen (som jo egentlig er rimelig essentiel når man bruger kjolen alene) men til det her look kan jeg meget godt lide den er helt gennemsigtig. Det giver noget uskyldigt og smukt til et ellers ret uskyldigt look.

english: Ahh it feels like spring in Milan these days, the temperature is just perfect – pure sweater weather. With this outfit I wanted to show how I style my winter and summer items for spring. Just melting it together. My favorite knit pared with the jeans I just happen to hop in everytime I go somewhere and then a summer dress. It’s obviously too cold to only wear the dress yet BUT I still want to pull it out of the closet from time to time. This is how I get the most use of my summer and winter items all year round. I put it all together in one outfit. All I did was remove the chemise that comes with the dress (which is of course is quite essential when only wearing the dress) and threw it together with the rest of the look. I love the sheer effect it brings to the look.

I aften vil jeg være på vej igen, denne gang syd på. Til elskede Milano. Milano modeugen er en af mine absolut favoritter – der bliver afholdt nogle fantastiske shows, det er nemt at komme rundt og så er det lige en snes varmere end det er her. Hurra for det! Hermed et lille sneakpeak på de ting jeg pakker til at tage med. Jeg rejser denne gang med den her orange kuffert fra Delsey. Jeg synes den er OVER fed – glæder mig til at rejse med den (og dens makker). Det er så vigtigt for mig at have lækkert rejse gear, det er ellers super undervurderet men der er da få ting der kan måle sig med hvor tjekket man føler sig når man rejser med matchende baggage. Jeg skal rejse med Laura igen denne sæson og det er jeg så glad for, vi har altid de bedste ture! Jeg glæder mig til at dele mine streetstyle billeder med jer fra Milano! Stay tuned!

english: tonight I am on the go again, this time flying south. To beloved Milan. Milan fashionweek is one of my favorite fashion weeks – its great shows, easy to get around and then it’s just a tad warmer than here. Hurraayy!! Here is a little sneakpeak of what I will be bringing. I am traveling with this orange beauty of a suitcase this time (and it’s big brother), I absolutely love it! It’s so important to me to have awesome travel gear, I love the feeling I get when my suitcases match – so put together! I am traveling with Laura again this season which I am so much looking forward to! She is indeed my partner in crime. I can’t wait to show you my streetstyle footage from Milan! Stay tuned.

Er du model? Nej? Hvorfor er du her så? Seriøst det var der en som sagde til mig! Lidt som om, hvis ikke du er model så smut. Det er en meget specifik stemning som er backstage til de store shows. Hektisk, skyndt og fyldt med energi der er lige til at gøre en hel høj. 1 – 2 – 3 og klar til show! Mens jeg prøvede ikke at være for meget i vejen smøg jeg mig rundt i mængden med mit videokamera i et forsøg på at fange det hele. Det var aller første gang jeg var backstage til modeshows og jeg håber ikke det bliver den sidste. Det var helt fantastisk.

english: Are you a model? “no?” – then why are you here? Seriously, someone asked me that! Kinda like, if you are not a model then get out. There is a very specific vibe backstage. Rushed, hectic and filled with intoxicating energy. 1 – 2 – 3 ready for showstart. Trying not to be too much in the way I got around, filming and photographing everything on my way. It has been my first time being backstage at an international fashionweek and I hope it won’t be the last – it was awesome!

Lige så vigtigt som hvilket outfit du skal have på til fashionweek er, lige så vigtigt er dit makeup look, lige så vigtigt er dit hår. Det hele hænger sammen. Jeg ser et look som en cirkel, der er forskellige steps som skal fuldføres før det er komplet. Jeg har dedikeret et personligt makeup look til de 3 internationale modeuger jeg skal til og her er mit take på New York. Romantisk med kant er ikke kun inspirationen for looket men det er intet mindre end sådan jeg ser New York city. Smuk men flossede i kanterne. Looket er lavet med mat hud, highlighter på kindben, næse og overlæbe. Rosa kinder og en “uperfekt” læbe. Jeg har brugt læbestiften både på kinder og læber og har med vilje efterladt læberne lidt tørre. Jeg synes det giver et sundt vindblæst look som afspejler hvordan New York får mig til at føle. Jeg glæder mig til at vise jer mine looks fra Milano & Paris også. Knus til jer!

english: Just as important as what outfit to wear for fashionweek is, just as important is the makeup, just as important is the hair. It’s one big loop – complete only one and the cirkle is incomplete. I have dedicated one makeup look to each of the international fashion weeks that I will be attending and this is my take on New York. Romance with an edge is not just the inspiration for the look but in fact the way I see New York city. Beautiful but rough around the edges. The look is a combo of a matt finished and flawless skin with highlight on cheekbones, bridge of nose and upper lip. Rosy cheeks and “imperfect” lips. I used the lipstick on both cheeks and lips and have on purpose left the lips a little dry. I like the healthy “wind blown” look it gives. Just like New York can sometimes blow you away with their rough winds. I look forward to showing you my looks for Milan and Paris. Hugs to you all!

english: Ohh finally, this has been coming for a while! So I thought I would share something pretty exciting with you guys! I am making my way back to youtube after 3 years. It has been a long time, actually deciding wether this was right for me or not but here I am. Making the move and going back to video. This does not mean that I will stop blogging or neglect my blog at all, it just means more space to make more fun content! I am so excited to get started again.

“BLÆR!” tænkte jeg da jeg trådte ind i Maybellines content room i går. Jeg mener, jeg har godt set lokaler som disse på film men tænk at de ren faktisk findes! SÅ blæret. Et helt rum med vinduer, spejle og makeup i lange baner. En hver piges drøm! Michelle, Emily og jeg fik tips og tricks af Maybellines danske key makeup artist Marie Thomsen til at lave vores eget Maybelline look – eller til et af de looks vi havde set under forskellige shows. Jeg glæder mig til at dele mit med jer, jeg kan allerede afsløre jeg er ret glad for det lyserøde for tiden. Romantisk med kant! Stay tuned.

english: “WOW SICK!” was my first thought when I entered the Maybelline content studio yesterday. I mean, I have seen studios like these in the movies. But seriously! They exist! A whole room of just windows, mirrors and makeup – every girls dream! Michelle, Emily and I got tips and tricks from makeup artist Marie Thomsen to do either our own Maybelline look or to recreate a runway look we saw during the trip. I look forward to sharing my look with you. I can say as much as I am very much in love with pink these days. Romance with an edge. Stay tuned.

Så er vi ankommet og det føltes som om vi skal hjem igen lige om lidt. Det går alt for stærkt! Efter 8 timer i flyet røg vi direkte i en taxa, op på værelset med vores tasker og derefter havde vi de hyggeligste timer i den seje Paintbox nail salon som ligger lige ved vores hotel i Soho. Man fik en lille negle menu hvor man så kunne vælge hvilket negle design man ville have. Jeg gik efter et ret simpelt look i fine vinter farver. Lige noget for mig! De kommende dage står på shows, events og en hel masse flere spændende ting som jeg glæder mig til at dokumentere for jer. Stay tuned!

english: We have finally arrived! The hours are flying by and I feel like the trip is already ending! After a good 8 hour flight we went straight into a cab, then to our hotel and then we got to spend a couple of hours being pampered at the cute Paintbox nail salon just by our hotel in Soho. A small nail menu was presented and I choose a quite down to earth nail look kept in beautiful winter colors. Just how I like it! The upcoming days are filled with shows, events and a whole lot of exciting things I can’t wait to share with you! Stay tuned.

Ahh at flyve langt. Enten elsker man det eller også hader man det – jeg har aldrig mødt nogen som havde lidt en “meh” mening om at flyve langt. Jeg personligt elsker at flyve langt, men jeg har også altid været meget glad for transport. Jeg elsker at køre og blive kørt, flyve yes, tog yes – synes det er så hyggeligt at være på tur. I morgen går turen til New York med Essie og jeg glæder mig SÅ meget. Det bliver så spændende og jeg skal afsted sammen med nogle super seje og dejlige damer. På billedet ser i det som jeg nærmest altid tager med mig i kabinen når jeg skal flyve mere end 5 timer – jeg vil rigtig gerne lige knytte en kommentar til alt på billedet så dem får i på engelsk nedenfor! Happy reading!

english: Ahh yes, long flights. Either you love it or you hate it – I have never met somebody who was like “mmm I don’t have an opinion about that” everybody does! I love long flights, but I have always been quite pleased with transportation. I love to drive and be driven, to take the train yes, to fly yes, anything moving is just yes! It’s so nice to be on a trip. Going somewhere. Tomorrow I am leaving for New York with Essie and I am so excited! It is some seriously cool ladies I will be traveling with and I can’t wait anymore! What you are seeing in the photo above are the things I never travel without if my flight is more than 5 hours long. I’ll just go through them real quick down below, enjoy!

1. Neck pillow I love you, I need you – just like it’s okay to dress (very) comfortable on long flights it’s also okay to have a relationship with your neck pillow. I love this one from Delsey, it’s soft and since I often travel in all grey it’s just the right shade of grey (yes it matters).

2. This handcreme, I use it all the time – I love it! I get so dry on flights. I just love to smear my hands in yummy cream and watch a movie! Can’t really touch the screen after applying though.

3. On to the facial products, I often travel with very little makeup on if I have far to go. I love to bring a few key items with me on board so I look fresh when I arrive. A little highlighter, a lip balm (or I die), brilliant true match concealer to hide the tired, a brow pencil because these babys don’t do them self and some kind of multi product. I love a good chubby stick, it can go on your lips, your eyelids and your cheeks. Win win!

4. Perfume – my god don’t ever be that douchebag who sprays perfume on a plane. Seriously that’s just mean – not everyone wants to smell like you and we are in a closed space. Thank you very much for your consideration. I found a solution though! Hérmes makes travel size perfumes that are for dabbing, not for spraying. Genius!

5. Nail couture by Essie is the best for flying because it doesn’t need a base coat just apply and you are good to go. This step is of course unnecessary if you are one of those cool, put-together people who always has their nails done. I envy you.

6. Moisture and more of it please. My skin needs a drink while flying so I always bring a great travel size moisturizer with me just in case. It’s also a good idea to bring if you apply makeup on the plane, that foundation has to stick to something.

7. If you travel with mascara on, please bring cotton buds. Nobody likes that ugly black mascara fall out dust under the eyes and especially not yourself when you look in a mirror. Remember that scene from “the wedding date”? Yep, just saying.

8. Mouthwash is always a quite nice thing to bring if you are not a “travel with your toothbrush” kinda gal. These little mouthwash’s are often at hotels, right there to grab and go. Just do it! Last but not least, the disinfectant gel – just because it’s wise. No sickness on vacation please!
