Mens jeg sidder og kigger på mine billeder fra den sidste uges tid kan jeg godt se at jeg har været i et lettere blåt hjørne. Blåt tøj, blå locations, blå himmel. Denne facade ligger lige overfor hvor jeg bor her i Los Angeles og jeg blev så glad da jeg så den fordi hjemme i KBH bor jeg i post nummer 1265. Det føltes lige pludselig som om verden var lidt mindre. Det er sjovt egentlig, med mig og Los Angeles. Jeg har altid været lidt sur på mig selv over at jeg blev så forelsket i LA første gang jeg var her. Fordi jeg vidste jeg ville få behov for at komme tilbage igen og igen og at de små besøg en dag ikke længere ville være nok. Det skal ikke være nogen hemmelighed at jeg gerne vil bo her permanent. Hvor jeg dog forbander at jeg ikke har det sådan med Århus, København, Silkeborg, Ringkøbing eller Herning (anywhere i DK really) så jeg kunne være tæt på min familie samtidig med at jeg boede det sted jeg aller helst vil bo i verden. Men sådan er det ikke og det er der måske en mening med. Jeg ved ikke hvad endnu, men indtil videre finder jeg lidt ro i at kigge ud af mit vindue og se 1265 ovre på den anden side af vejen. Så føltes hjemme lige pludselig ikke så langt væk alligevel. God weekend!

english: While sitting here, looking at my latest photos I see that I am in a blue corner these days. Blue clothes, blue locations, blue skies. This building is located across from where I live here in Los Angeles and I was so happy when I saw it because my Copenhagen postal code is 1265. Suddenly the world got smaller. It’s funny really, this me and LA business. I have always been kinda mad at myself for falling so madly in love with this city. Because despite vitsting again and again I know that someday it won’t be enough. It’s no secret I’d love to live here for real. Oh I curse the fact that I don’t feel that way about Aarhus, Copenhagen, Silkeborg, Ringkoebing or Herning (anywhere in DK really). That way I’d be a lot closer to the people I love and still live in the place I wanted to the most. But that’s just not the case, and maybe there is a mening behind it. I don’t know what that might be yet but for now, I find peace in looking out the window and seeing 1265 across the road. Suddenly home isn’t so far away. Have a happy weekend!

Makeup looks by Val Garland for L’oréal Paris
Le Défilié catwalk show 2017
Paris Fashionweek

Det er ikke svært at være stolt af, at være en del af L’oréal familien på daglig basis. L’oréal er et powerhouse, ikke kun fordi de er moderen til mange fantastiske brands men også fordi de tør at være anderledes. De tør at kaste nogle skæve bolde ud i industrien. De tør at være first movers. Altid de første med de sejeste collabs, altid først med de klareste, smukkeste farver og altid først med de mest innovative produkter. L’oréal Paris er stjernen på juletræet og i sandhed moderskibet over dem alle. Dette var der ihvertfald ingen tvivl om d. 1 oktober da L’oréal Paris stod bag verdens første mode-skønheds runway show under Paris Fashionweek. Ikoniske Champs-Elysées stod for sceneriet mens brandet erklærede sin kærlighed til Paris på en måde sjældent set. Val Garland var mesteren bag de betagende makeup looks. Jeg må virkelig sige, efter at have set showet og studeret makeuppen – at jeg er fuldstændig mundlam. Disse looks er så anderledes, så empowering og udover det sædvanlige kreative. Det gav mig virkelig en påmindelse om hvor kraftfuld en form for kommunikation makeup er. Det er som et sprog i sig selv. Jeg har samlet mine absolut yndlings looks fra showet og håber du vil føle dig lige så inspireret af dem som jeg er. Stående bifald til L’oréal Paris!

english: It’s not hard to be proud of being apart of the L’oréal family on a daily basis. L’oréal is a powerhouse, not only because it’s the mother of tons of amazing brands but also because they dare to be different. They dare to throw curve balls at the world. They dare to be first movers. Always first with the coolest collabs, always first with the most vivid colors and most innovative products. L’oréal Paris is the star of the show and truly the mothership of them all. This was clear on October 1st when L’oréal Paris hosted the worlds first fashion-beauty runway show during Paris Fashionweek. Taking over the iconic Champs-Elysées, the brand truly declared it’s love to Paris in an unparalleled way. Val Garland was the master chef behind the amazing makeup looks. I must say, after seeing the show and studying the makeup – I was in complete awe. These looks are so different, empowering and creative beyond imagine. It really gave me a reminder of how powerful an expression makeup is. It’s a language in it self. I have gathered my absolute favorite looks for you and hope you feel as inspired by these as I do. Big bow down to L’oréal Paris.

ROLLED OUT OF BED

Hvad er det ved at rende rundt som om man lige er faldet ud af sengen? Hvorfor er det så tiltalende? “Her er jeg så.. lige rullet ud af sengen, tilfældigvis iklædt designer tøj fra top til tå.” Oh, det er bare så yummy! Jeg elsker at lege at jeg spiller en eller anden karakter som bare går i seng iført fantastiske pyjamas suits. Det er helt fyldestgørende. Men det er jo det mode er? Er det ikke? Det er lidt som at få lov at være en anden bare et øjeblik. Det er det ihvertfald for mig. Jeg elsker at tænke på hvad andre mon tænker om det tøj jeg har på. De må nogengange tro jeg er lidt småskør. Jeg var forresten i bio iført det her sæt tøj, det var fantastisk!

english: What is it about walking around the street looking like you just got out of bed? Why is it so appealing? “Here I am, just rolling out of bed, dressed in designer clothes from top to toe”. It’s just so yummy to me. This feeling of playing this character who is just incredibly stylish when going to bed – it’s for filling. Cause that’s what fashion is, isn’t it? It’s kinda like dressing up as someone else. Just for a little while. It is for me anyway. I love to think about what people must think of me when I am dressed in a certain way. I went to the movies like this btw, it was totally awesome.

TIP | OLIVE CAFÉ SAN DIEGO

Café Olive
805 Santa Clara Place
San Diego, CA 92109

Man siger at morgenmaden er det vigtigeste måltid vi spiser i løbet af dagen. Min far har altid sagt, spis som en konge til morgenmad, en prinsesse til frokost og en bonde til aftensmad. Så en anbefaling til et lille morgenmad’s sted er vist på sin plads. Mia har boet i San Diego for et par år siden så hun havde så meget at vise mig at en enkelt dag ikke var nok! Café Olive er et lille lokalt spisested på en stille gade i Mission Beach. Jeg har sjældent oplevet et mindre turistede sted i Californien (hvor det føles som alle steder har stået i en turist guide). Maden, og de mennesker som spiste den var så autentiske og stemningen var i sandhed en stille morgen summen. Vi sad udenfor, på plastik stole og nød duften af hav mens vi så utallige surfere gå til og fra stranden. De stoppede ofte lige op og gik inde på Café Olive for at købe en lemonade eller en muffin to go. Maden var simpel, amerikansk og mættede godt. Perfekt forberedelse til en dag på Mission Beach (som forresten opleves). God fornøjelse!

english: It has been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. My dad always says, eat like a king in the morning, a princess in the afternoon and a farmer at night. So a little breakfast recommendation is appropriate for the blog don’t ya think? Mia has lived in San Diego a couple of years ago and she had so much to show me that one day simply wasn’t enough! Café Olive is a small, very local eatery located on a small, quite street in Mission Beach. It’s rare to find such a non touristy place in California (where everything seems to have been in some kind of turist book). The food, and the people eating it are so authentic and the vibe is just a perfect, quite morning hum. We sat outside on plastic chairs just enjoying the smell of ocean. Countless surfers were commuting to and from the beach and many of them stopped for a lemonade or a muffin to go. The food was simple, american and had a solid lay in the stomach. Perfect start for a day at Mission Beach (a place you absolutely must see btw). Enjoy!

Jeg undskylder for lige pludselig stilhed på bloggen. Mia og jeg har været i fuld gang med at pakke alt vores happengut ned så vi endelig kunne flytte i vores egen lejlighed. Nu er vi flyttet, vi har fået ny bil og er endelig ved at være på plads (siger jeg mens jeg kan skuer et par pap kasser eller 3 ud af min øjenkrog mens jeg sidder her og skriver). Så godt som i hvertfald! Vi nåede også lige et smut forbi San Diego hvor disse billeder er taget. Jeg følte mig som det vildeste sommerbarn i den her mondering. Det gør mig i godt humør at have gul på, overvejer om jeg mon kan finde en gul pels til vinter som måske kan lyse den mørke december måned lidt op hjemme i Danmark. Men den tid, den pels. Mia og jeg kom så hurtigt ud af døren den morgen vi kørte til San Diego at vi glemte kameraet så derfor er billederne i de næste par post’s taget med iPhone. Det er nu også sjovt at prøve at skyde med andet udstyr end den man plejer! Stay tuned for lækker mad tip fra San Diego i morgen.

english: I apologize for the sudden silence on the blog. Mia and I have been fully occupied with packing all of our stuff so we could finally move into our own apartment. We have now moved, gotten a new car and is finally settling in (I say this while looking at 3 moving boxes over my computer screen). Almost anyway. We also made it to San Diego for a day where these photos were taken. I felt like the biggest summer child in my yellow dressing. It makes me happy to wear yellow, I am considering where I can get my hands on a yellow fur to get me through the cold, dark months of Denmark this winter. But, that time, that fur. Mia and I rushed so much to get out of the door, the morning we went to San Diego, that we forgot the camera. So these photos and the photos of the next post are taken with my iPhone. It’s not what I usually do but I kinda like trying to work with new equipment. Stay tuned for awesome food recommendations from San Diego tomorrow!

Mens modeugen i Paris drøner derud af kan jeg kun sidde og kigge med på de sociale medier. Det er helt underligt ikke at være til de internationale modeuger men det har været en tiltrængt pause fra det pulserende modeuge ræs. Dog betyder dette ikke, at jeg ikke både kigger med og føler mig inspireret af hvad der foregår. Et af mine yndlings shows på hele sæsonen var faktisk danske By Malene Birger. Grunden til at jeg kæder dette show sammen med de internationale modeuger undre du dig måske over men lad mig forklare hvorfor. Jeg har altid haft en helt særlig følelse når jeg sidder til et internationalt modeshow, det er som om at de mindre modeuger ikke helt kan trække den samme intensitet. Det er ihvertfald min personlige mening. Dette er hvor By Malene Birger kommer ind i billedet. I august da jeg sad og ventede et sted på amager på at showet skulle gå i gang fik jeg lige pludselig lidt samme fornemmelse. Fornemmelsen af jeg kunne være alle steder i verden og da så showet gik igang, fik jeg den fornemmelse bekræftet. Musikken, model castet, kollektionen, makeuppen – det hele mindede om et Valentino show i Paris. Jeg har blown away, fuldstændig sat på halen over hvor stort showet føltes selvom det “bare” var i København. Derfor, som en lille celebration for denne modeuge sæsons ende har jeg rekreeret By Malene Birger looket som blev lavet af L’oréal Paris. Et gyldent, glinsende, vådt og eksotisk look som minder om en hypnotiserende amazone kvinde på vej gennem skoven. Det komplimenterede ikke kun kollektionen men også modellerne til UG. Jeg har brugt et gyldent hav af produkter som i alle kan shoppe ovenfor. God fornøjelse.

english: While fashionweek is galloping with full speed forward in Paris these days, I am just here looking at it all through my phone. I have to be honest, I am feeling kinda weird about not participating in the international fashion weeks this season. But it’s been a much needed break. This doesn’t mean though, that I dont’ feel inspired about all the catwalk news, because I do indeed. One of my favorite shows this entire season has been danish By Malene Birger. The reason why I am linking this show to the international shows might make you wonder, but don’t worry I will fill you in. I always get this very special feeling in my body when I attend a international fashion show, something about the vibe is just so grand that you can’t compare it to anything else. And smaller fashion weeks has never quite done the same for me. But this is where By Malene Birger comes into the picture. This August when I was sitting at some venue on Amager, waiting for the show to start, I suddenly got a whiff of the same feeling. The feeling that I could be sitting anywhere in the world and when the show started, the feeling got real. The music, the model cast, the collection, the makeup – all of it was as grand as a Valentino show in Paris. I was completely blown away, just in awe over how big it all felt even though it was “only” in Copenhagen. Therefore, as a small celebration to this season coming to an end I have recreated the By Malene Birger makeup look made by L’oréal Paris. A golden, glistening, wet and exotic look that reminds me of a grand amazon woman running through the woods. It didn’t only compliment the collection but also the models to perfection. I used all these golden products above, shop via the links. Enjoy!
