Første stop, is – er jeg den eneste? Min super checkede og mega seje assistent Isabella havde set de her sorte valfer på instagram og befalet at jeg skulle tage derhen når jeg kom til L.A. For pokker hvor var det den lange køre tur indtil downtown værd! På hjørnet af snavset og støjende lå dette lille ternede drømmeland. Familie ejet is butik med is til både de lactose intolerente og veganerne. Oh og de der sorte vafler, SÅ seje! Jeg prøvede deres almond charcoal med oreo stykker på, det var fantastisk og så er stedet super instagram venligt. Du burde seriøst overveje at svinge forbi denne lille perle hvis du befinder dig i Los Angeles.

english: First stop, ice cream – am I right? My über cool and upbeat assistant Isabella had seen these black cones all over instagram and told me I had to go check it out when I touched down in L.A. My goodness was it worth the drive into downtown. On the corner of noisy and loud was this little checked dream of a place. Family owned ice cream shop with both lactose free and vegan friendly options to choose from. And those pitch black super cool cones, SO awesome! I tried the almond charcoal with oreo bits on top, it was amazing – and such a instagram friendly place. In love! You absolutely must swing by if you are in Los Angeles.

Jeg sad for et par dage siden og kiggede mine streetstyle billeder igennem fra 2016 og lagde mærke til at jeg har haft en masse røde detaljer i mine outfits hen over året. Det er ikke en hemmelighed jeg er meget glad for rød, måske fordi jeg altid har fået at vide at rødhåret piger ikke kan gå med rødt. Gu kan de så! Jeg er både til helt røde outfits men også til en rød taske, eller bare en rød læbe. I 2017 ønsker jeg mig en rød sweatshirt (helst fra vetements) samt et par røde gucci loafers – helst dem i krokodille men de kræver lidt (MEGET!) opsparing. Jeg har samlet lidt flere røde favoritter nedenfor – jeg kan mærke jeg ikke helt kan ligge den røde detalje endnu. Og hvorfor skulle jeg? It looks awesome!

english: I was looking over my streetstyle images from 2016 and instantly noticed that I have rocked a lot of red details through out the year. It’s not a secret that I have a thing for red, maybe mostly because I was always told that red-haired girls can’t wear red. Hell they can! I love both completely red outfits but also a red bag or just a red lip. In 2017 I am wishing for a red sweatshirt (preferably vestments) and a pair of red Gucci loafers. I dream of them in crocodile but to be honest those need some serious saving. I have gathered some more red favorites down below. I am not yet done with my red romance, why would I be? It looks awesome!

A SEASONAL MUSTHAVE

partybag

Når du vælger din festtaske skal du forestille dig at du er ude og shoppe de øreringe du skal have på. Den er lige så meget et smykke i sig selv som de smykker du pynter dig med. Glitter, velour, stenbesat, nitte besat eller måske helt simpel? De fleste mener nok at man ikke burde larme i hele ens outfit, vild kjole = knap så vilde accessories, simpel kjole = vildere accessories. Jeg vil til dels give dem ret, med mindre man ikke er bange for at lave print på print eller sten på sten lige som Dolce & Gabbana på billedet ovenfor. De er verdenskendt for at være “for meget” på verdens fedeste måde, så det er lidt hvad man er til. I forhold til fest påklædning vil jeg sige jeg er ret sort hvid. Jeg kan godt lidt en simpel kjole med en simpel taske, her er den blå Adax storfavorit, jeg elsker kæden og den dybemørkeblå, perfekt til et klassisk, stilet outfit. Men hvis der skal larmes så skal der larmes, jeg ville elske at tage den glitrende, lyserøde Saint Laurent taske med en tur ud og danse i en vild printet sag eller måske en palliet kjole, aha! Ikke så kedeligt endda. Nyd jeres julefester, de er så dejlige!

english: When you are choosing your party bag, you must take it just as serious as if you were shopping for jewelry. It’s just as much a part of the outfit as the right earrings. Sparkles, velvet, embellished, filled with studs or maybe completely simple? Most girls would never wear something too loud, wild dress = less wild accessories, classic dress = wilder accessories. That’s kinda the “rules”. And I do agree with them on some level, unless of course you are not afraid to go all out on print and stones like Dolce & Gabbana in the photo above. They are known all over the world for their vivid prints and beautiful bags, and they are the best at putting it together. I guess I am pretty black n white when it comes to dressing for parties. If I choose a classic dress I also like to wear a classic bag, like the blue one from Adax. I love the chain strap and the clean front, perfekt for a night out. But if it’s a party where dancing on the tables is allowed I would go nuts for the glittery Saint Laurent bag and probably pair it with a sequin dress or something crazy printed. Nothing wrong with going all out, hope you have some wonderful holiday parties!

Jeg synes det er dejligt at have en palette at arbejde rundt om når en ny sæson kommer. Sidste efterår var jeg helt fortabt i dyb flaske grøn, jeg købte alt i det! Solbriller, frakker, bukser, tasker – det hele. Denne sæson er jeg vild med denne bruge, beige, grå farvelade forvirring, heldigvis kan man også få alting i den! Det er som om grå og brun har fået en baby! Jeg er særligt vild med denne farve fordi den klæder virkelig mange, jeg vil næsten gå så langt som at sige alle. OG så er den tidsløs – fantastisk.

english: I love to have a pallet to work around when the seasons change, last fall I loved the deep bottle green. I got everything in it, sunglasses, coats, pants, bags – whatever! This season I am super into this grey beige brown situation that you see above. Luckily it comes in about everything this season and it’s beautiful! It’s like grey and brown had a baby, I love it! I am especially crazy about this color because it suits so many, dare I say all? AND it’s timeless – amazing.

GUIDE: ONE SHIRT THREE WAYS

maria-jernov-wearing-britt-sisseck

THE FLAT LAY

This shirt has quite wide ties which makes it perfect for a “flat lay” as I like to call it. Simply smooth down the ties in front of you (make sure it’s ironed). It can be worn over a dress, a sweater vest, a cardigan or on it’s own. I know you are never supposed to give up the best in the front, but this is definitely my favorite way to style this shirt. I think its different, classic and quite cool.

THE NECKERCHIEF

Inspo from the gentlemens department indeed. You know those men who doesn’t wear a tie but like a little cloth around their neck but under the shirt? It’s apparently called a neckerchief and that’s where this styling option comes from. Simply tuck the ties into the dress (or whatever you are styling with) and “puff it up” a bit to create some volume.

OVERSIZED BOWTIE

Not a hard one to figure out, I know, but it’s silly and unexpected. An oversized bowtie is the way to go if you are feeling brave and too cute for the business look. There’s not much too it, make a twist with the ties and make sure it’s same size on both sides. Kinda reminds me of the ones clowns wear, the cute clowns (not the scary ones!)

“En skjorte med flere styling muligheder” er hvordan Britt Sisseck selv beskriver denne skjorte, og jeg kunne ikke være mere enig. Jeg håber i kunne lide min lille guide trods den var på engelsk. Det giver bare mere mening at gøre det på ét sprog hvor alle kan være med når det er flere tekster. Jeg følte ihvertfald jeg absolut måtte lave et post om denne skjorte da jeg selv fik den prøvet og så hvor mange måder den kunne styles på. Det kan sikkert gøres på mange, mange flere måder! Happy styling!

english: “a shirt with multiple styling options” is how Britt Sisseck describes this shirt herself and I couldn’t agree more. I hope you liked this little guide, I felt I absolutely had to make it once I found out how many ways this shirt could be styled and I am sure it can be worn even more ways! Have fun playing with your shirts!

Balanced minimalism, balanceret minimalisme om man vil. Hvad er dog det? Det er ikke altid at almindelige mennesker forstår “modesprog” – jeg forstår det sgu ikke engang altid og jeg har hørt på det i et par år efterhånden. Men lad mig fortælle om det. Balanced minimalism er titlen på (og nøglen til) skandinavisk stil. Også kaldt “Scandi cool” – så mange udtryk at lære, I know. Jeg har i samarbejde med Zalando skrevet en artikel og lavet en video vedr. denne trend. Hvordan man kan få den, tips og tricks fra nogle af mine seje blogger kollegaer og selvfølgelig sjove fraklip. I kan finde både video og artikel lige her. Enjoy!

english: Balanced minimalism, what on earth is that? It’s quite rare that regular people understand “fashion language” – hell I don’t even always understand it and I listen to it all the time. But let me walk you through it. Balanced minimalism is the title of (and the key to) scandinavian style. In fashion language “Scandi cool” – so many expressions to learn, I know. I have in collaboration with Zalando written an article and made a video explaining this trend. How to get it, tips and tricks from some of my super cool blogger colleagues and of course, fun bloopers. You can find both the video and the article here. Enjoy!

Selvom det danske vejr ikke lige frem skriger sommer de her dage skal det ikke forhindre mig i at lave en blogpost til jer om mine absolut favorit sko her i sommer månederne. Ruskind og jordfarver har domineret min sko garderobe meget siden foråret, det kom sig af at jeg besluttede mig for at nu var det altså blevet lidt for nemt kun at gå i hvide sneakers. Let’s face it – hvide sneakers går til alt og det er ærlig talt lidt ensformigt, i hvertfald for mig. Så disse 5 par har været mine go-to sko siden maj og jeg elsker dem alle, de bringer hver især noget særligt til et outfit og jeg føler min garderobe har fået mere liv efter jeg aktivt er begyndt at tage mere stilling til mit fodtøj. De kan alle shoppes via link’sne oven for – jeg ved b.la at de 2 par Proenza er på udsalg!

english: Eventhough the danish weather is not being very summery these days it doesn’t stop me from sharing my favorite summer footwear with you guys. Suede and earthy tones has dominated my shoe wardrobe since spring where I made the decision of not wearing white sneaks so much anymore. Let’s face it, it’s almost too easy and I wear them ALL the time – so I am trying something new. So here are my 5 go-to shoes at the moment, I absolutely love all of them and how they bring a different look to every outfit. You can shop them all via the links – I know the Proenza’s are on sale, just saying!

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!

Nu kan vi ikke løbe fra den mere – det er officielt vinter og selvom det er koldt og nogen måske ikke er så vilde med det så betyder det da heldigvis at jakke sæsonen for alvor er over os. Jeg personligt er fuldstændig syg med jakker og jeg har alt for mange, nogen samler på tasker, andre sko – jeg samler på jakker, frakker og alle deres hyggelige venner.

Så jeg har samlet 12 lækre jakker i en god prisklasse og så er det bare at shoppe løs! Pssst mange af dem er allerede på udsalg – click away!

english: It has caught up with us and we can’t run from it anymore – it’s officially winter time and eventho its cold and some might not like it too much it means that it is coat season. I personally  am totally crazy about outerwear and I have too many coats! Some collect bags, some shoes but me oh I love coats, jackets and all their cozy friends! I think a coat can do so much – there is nothing worse than putting on a rocking outfit and then your plain coat just makes it bla.. So here is 12 beautiful pieces of outerwear for you, all reasonably priced and some of them are already on sale – click away!
