SPORTY SUE

Hej alle jer! Jeg fandt en fin lille mappe med outfits som jeg aldrig nåede at få op i 2017. Så dem tænkte jeg lige at jeg ville dele med jer. Vi starter med dette farve vidunder. Taget engang i sommers, et sted i indre by sammen med Laura. Jeg havde en kort periode en meget stor kærlighed til at mixe noget meget sporty med noget meget usporty som f.eks. at mixe Cedric Charlier med Nike. Læg lige mærke til pandehåret – det var fanme fint!

english: Hi beauties! I just found a little map of outfits on my desktop that I didn’t get around to publishing in 2017. So I thought I would share them with you now. Let’s start with some color lovin’. Taken sometime this summer, somewhere in Copenhagen by Laura. I had for a short while a very intense love of the mixing of something very sporty with very not so sporty. Like mixing Cedric Charlier and Nike. Please notice the bangs – god damm it, those are fine! 

Shirt / Gina Tricot, Skirt / Monk, Sunglasses / Céline, Bag / Marni, Sandals / Chanel

A RAINBOW OF RED

Nr. 2, er et outfit som jeg havde på nærmest hele juli måned, eller det er ihvertfald sådan jeg husker det. Det var komfortabelt, farverigt og så alligevel varmt nok til at have på i det danske sommer vejr. Jeg har stadig den her strik hængende på mit stativ inde i soveværelset. Den er sgu ret sejt!

english: I wore this second outfit almost all of July last year, or at least thats how I remember it. It was comfortable, colorful and warm enough to keep the chilly danish summer out. I still have this knit hanging in my closet. It’s still pretty cool, I have to say!

Shirt / Résumé, Pants / DKNY, Sunglasses / Versace, Sandals / Chanel

SCANDI GIRL 

Et råb til min skandinaviske herkomst. Ellers ikke et stil univers jeg befinder mig så meget i men jeg var ret glad for dette look. Er vild med de lange, lidt brede bukser og så synes jeg at track suit overdelen fra Résumé var alt for nice. Glæder mig allerede til jeg skal have mine chanel sandaler på igen til sommer. De er så smukke!

english: A shoutout to my scandinavian roots. The scandinavian style sector is not really a place I often navigate but I loved this look. I am so into the long and wide pants together with the tracksuit shirt from Résumé. I am already looking forward to summer so I can wear my chanel sandals again. They are just beautiful! 

Knit / Acne, Shirt / Gina Tricot, Skirt / Iceberg, Bag / Balenciaga, Shoes / AGL

THIGH HIGH SLIT

Jeg vi lige starte med at i talesætte hvor høj slidsen er på denne nederdel! Hold da kæft! Det er ikke for små børn og fulde borgere – eller hvad man nu siger? Den var ihvertfald høj. Elsker det fine farve spil i dette outfit og de små kitten heels. Det er 100% inspireret af Laura – det er jeg sikker på.

english: I would like to start of by commenting on how high the slit in this skirt is! Jesus christ! It’s not for kids or drunk people – is that how the saying goes? It’s high, thats for sure. I love the beautiful colors in this outfits and the kitten heels. It’s inspired by Laura, I’m sure. It must be!

ALL ABOUT THE FRILL

Der er ikke noget som et dejligt simpelt sommer outfit. Om sommeren er jeg altid meget glad for en simpel farve palette – det er så dejligt roligt når alt rundt om en, i naturen, er så farverigt. Lyseblå er altid en stor favorit og jeg kan huske hvor glad jeg var for denne bluse på grund af den store flæse detalje foroven og den asymetriske form forneden. En lyseblå overdel behøver slet ikke være kedelig.

english: There is nothing like a simple summer outfit. During the summer months I am always loving a simple color pallet – it’s so nice and calm while the nature is blooming with color around you. Light blue is always a favorite of mine and I remember how much I loved this shirt because of it’s big frill detail on the top and it’s asymmetrical bottom. A light blue top doesn’t have to be a boring choice at all.

CANDY FACTORY

Nok mit yndlings look fra hele 2017 – jeg havde den her kjole på så meget at jeg synes det var helt hårdt når den skulle vaskes. Det var i Grækenland at jeg købte den og det var også i Grækenland at jeg “opdagede” denne meget slikket knold som jeg har gjort meget brug af siden da. Det er virkelig blevet mit “go-to” hår på dovne eller meget varme dage. Hvis jeg sådan skal opsummere mit 2017 (stilmæssigt) så vil det være dette outfit. Det er det jeg havde det aller bedst i.

english: This is probably my favorite look from all of 2017 – I wore this dress so much that I almost missed it when it needed a wash. I bought it in Greece. It was also in Greece that I “discovered” this hair-do. I totally fell in love with this sleek ballerina bun and I have used it a lot since. If I should do a style recap of 2017 this is what I would say defined it for me. This is what I felt best in.

Hej alle! Så er jeg tilbage med endnu et tutorial – det virker til i er glade for dem så jeg har besluttet mig for at være bedre til at få dem lavet! I dag vil jeg vise jer hvordan jeg laver min go to “low messy bun”. Det bliver rigtig hurtigt en meget fingernem frisure når man har prøvet det et par gange. Jeg bruger denne frisure både mandag morgen og til fest. Jeg har lavet en step by step guide nedenfor. God fornøjelse!

english: Hey everybody! I am back with yet another tutorial – it seems that you guys like theses so I have decided to do more of them. Today I wanna show you how I do my go to low messy bun. It quickly becomes a very easy hairdo once you have done it a couple of times. I wear my hair like this on mondays and to parties. It’s super versatile. I have made a step by step guide down below. Enjoy!

Step 1
Prepping the hair

Products used:
Hydrating styling creme / Moroccan oil (shop here), Grip spray / Lernberger Stafsing (shop here)

Prepping the hair is one of the most important steps when doing a hairdo. I always used to underestimate this step because “how important can it be?” – well as it turns out, quite. So for this look first what I do is I smooth the ends of my hair. I use Moroccan oil’s hydrating styling creme and just run my fingers over my hair. Second I use a grip spray also known as a dry shampoo. I LOVE using dry shampoo because it kinda gives you the option of molding your hair into place without the stiffness of hairspray. I lift the crown of my hair and spray it into the routs. Remember to let the product sit for a while before you continue. That way it’s easier to work with.

 
Step 2
Parting the hair

Products used:
See through hair ties / Asos (shop here)

Now this step you might not find totally necessary once you have the next step completely down but it’s good for beginners. Part your hair from just over your ears and up. I like to use these almost invisible hair ties, they are easy to use and really keeps the pony in place. If you havn’t tried them yet, please do, they will change your life.

Step 2
Roll and tug

Products used:
Hairpins

Now this part is a bit tricky to explain but I am going to give it a go anyway. So the key to the low bun is actually to create “a bun”. So what I like to do is start at the ends of my hair and using two hands, simply roll up. When you have a shape you like place two hairpins inside the roll, one on each side to hold it in place. You might need more than two, so just place them within the roll where you see fit. As long as it’s secure you are good to go on to the next step.

Step 3
Secure with hairclip
Hairclip / Pico (shop here)

Securing your chosen hairclip just over the top of the bun is how I like to do it. I like these large slender hairclips from Pico, they are easy to use and you can fit a lot of hair in them. Finish the look by pulling out random strands of hair and you are done. Don’t worry about it being too perfect. It’s not supposed to be.

Thank you for tuning in

TEDDY TED TED TEDDY

IN COLLABORATION WITH ZALANDO

Everything from Zalando except shoes

Teddy jacket / Pepe Jeans (shop here), Teddy sweatshirt / Wood Wood (shop here), Skirt / Topshop (shop here), Bag / Zac Posen (shop here)

Vi kan alle sammen godt lide at være komfortable og rart klædt på, men hvordan gør man det når man også gerne vil se “stilet” ud? Det spurgte jeg mig selv om da jeg planlagde de januar outfits jeg gerne ville dele med jer. Januar er lidt en underlig måned. Alt det skønne julelys er pillet ned og det er som om der ikke er så meget at se frem til lige nu (ferie mæssigt anyway). Egentlig venter man bare lidt på det bliver forår. Eller er det bare mig? Så – hvorfor ikke gøre januar til en af de måneder hvor man går ekstra op i sit tøj? Det gør ihvertfald altid mig glad at føle mig velklædt. Det her fantastiske teddy tekstil er en af mine helt store favoritter for tiden. Det er super varmt og hyggeligt at have på og så bringer det så mange dejlige minder tilbage fra alverdens tøjdyr jeg havde da jeg var barn. Det ret fantastisk. Derudover er det også lige pludselig blevet et stilet tekstil at rocke, man kan få det i alverdens afskygninger hos alverdens brands lige nu. Jeg valgte at være rimelig “top heavy” i det her look men med balance fra skoene som matcher i samme farve. Tasken er fra Zac Posen og nederdelen er en god investering fordi den nærmest kan bruges hele året rundt. God fornøjelse!

english: We all like to be comfy and cozy, but how can you be comfy and cozy yet still look “together”? That was the question I asked myself as I was planning what to style for you here on the blog in January. January is a tough month, all the beautiful Christmas lights are down and there aren’t much to look forward to (holiday wise anyway) and you are kinda just waiting for spring to happen. Or is that just me? So – why not make January one of your best dressed months? Dressing great makes me happy, I can tell you that much. Teddy fabric is a current obsession of mine, it’s so warm but I also kinda loves how it brings back childhood memories of various stuffed animals. It’s kinda great. And on top of that, teddy has suddenly become a cool thing to wear which means you can get it at various brands in various styles. For this look I choose to go top heavy but color coordinated at the bottom so the look wouldn’t tilt. The bag is from Zac Posen and the mini skirt is a great investment because it can be used almost year around. Enjoy!

NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS 2018

Nogen synes at det der med nytårsfortsæt er noget fis, nogen synes de er fantastiske. De giver folk håb om et bedre år forude. Min mening er at nytårsfortsæt er en god ting. De giver folk lyst til at give året en ekstra skalle, for at gøre det til det bedste år nogensinde eller indtil videre. Om man holder dem, er op til en selv. Jeg har faktisk aldrig rigtig lavet nytårsfortsæt før. Men jeg tænker det nok har noget at gøre med min alder at gøre. Da jeg var teenager tænkte jeg ikke så meget over et nyt år som en ny start. Det var jo bare et nyt år? Men jeg kan godt se fordelene nu. Det er godt at have nogle kortsigtede mål at arbejde hen imod. SÅ uden ydereligere forsinkelser, her er mine 5 nytårsfortsæt;

english: Some people think resolutions are nothing but rubbish, some think resolutions are amazing. They give people hope for the new year and in my opinion, I think it’s nice people want to make an effort in making it their best year so far or maybe their best year ever. If they last or not, is up to the individual. I have never done the whole “resolutions” thing. But I think that might have something to do with my age. When I was a teenager I didn’t think much about years as a new start. A year was just a year you know? But I see the advantage now. It’s nice to have some short term goals to work towards. SO with that in mind, I have decided to share my 5 new years resolutions. Here we go;

1. 365 selfies
I have decided to do a little personal project in 2018. I am going to take 1 selfie a day for all the days of 2018. Maybe I will carry it into 2019 as well. Nobody knows. But I want to do it because I’d love to see the development we go through in a year. I think it could be magnificent.

2. Eat less meat
I NEVER thought I would write this. Ever. Because I absolutely LOVE meat. I don’t think I have ever ordered something vegetarian in my life. But I have come to realize that meat is not all that really good for you or the environment. So I have decided to eat less meat, not cut it out of my diet entirely but I will treat meat like I treat candy. All in moderation.

3. Out and about
My friends will nod agreeingly as I state this. I am not a going out person. I don’t really go to parties or to clubs or out for drinks. I never have. But I want to change that. In 2018 I will try to be more social and actually attend some of those fabulous parties I am often invited to!

4. Run forrest run
I hate running, I really do. Actually I just hate being active in general. A brisk walk? No thanks. A little hour at the gym? I don’t think so. But running is good for my mind. It clears my head and I need that, living the way I do. I work more hours than I should and travel a lot so I am thinking that running would be a good way for me to calm my stress levels when it all gets a little too much.

5. Put down the phone
Now this is a tough one. Putting down the phone. Fear of missing out much? Actually it’s not so hard for me but I feel that it is hard for my surroundings when I put down my phone. Living in a technical age like we do, it’s hard for other people to understand when you need a break. “Why aren’t you picking up your phone?”, “it took you hours to respond to my text messages”, “you havn’t put anything on instagram today” – is only some of the things I hear if I dare put my phone down for a day. But in 2018, I want to be better at putting myself first, cause sometimes you just really need a break.
