Hurraaa! I denne uge er det præcis 1 år siden at jeg blev selvstændig. Shit, det troede jeg ikke jeg skulle være i en alder af, på daværende tidspunkt, 22 år. Ved egentlig ikke om jeg nogensinde troede jeg skulle være selvstændig. For at være helt ærlig var det ikke rigtig “planen” men jeg genopstartede min blog fordi jeg følte jeg havde noget at sige, noget at vise og da så tiden på ELLE alligevel fandt sin ende tænkte jeg, “hvorfor ikke?”. Det var en meget mærkelig første dag på mit “nye arbejde”. Jeg sad der, i min sofa hjemme i stuen og tænkte “hvad fanden har du nu rodet dig ud i?”. Jeg fandt dog en stor tryghed i at min far har været selvstændig i mange år og at han jo, i min optik, kan svare på alle spørgsmål i verden. Då jeg følte mig ikke helt alene selvom han ingen erfaring har inde for den danske modebranche. Jeg lovede mig selv ikke at være for hård ved mig selv (for det har jeg tendens til) i den forstand at jeg ikke satte nogle økonomiske mål. Kun på den måde at hvis jeg kunne betale husleje den næste første i måneden – så kunne jeg fortsætte en måned mere. Nu er der gået et år og det går bedre end nogensinde. TAK til alle jer som læser med, jeg glæder mig til endnu et år med jer.

english: Hurraaaayyy! This very week it’s exactly 1 year since I started my own company and went full time on the blog. I didn’t really think I would have my own company at the age of 22. To be honest I haven’t ever dreamed of running my own business, maybe someone else’s but never my own. But I restarted the blog because I felt like I really had something to say, something to show you guys so when it was time for me to leave ELLE I just thought “why not?”. It was a very strange first day at my “new job”. And as I sat there on the couch in my living room I just thought “what the hell have you gotten yourself into now?”. I did although find great comfort in the fact that my dad has run his own business for years and in the fact that he can answer any question I come with. And that is even though he has absolutely no ties to the danish fashion industry. I promised my self not to be to hard on my self (which I have a tendency to be) in the sense that I didn’t set any economical goals for my self. Only in the way that if I could pay rent the next month then I could try for another. It’s been a year and the blog is doing better than ever. Thank you so much to all of you who tune in to read, it means the world to me and I am so excited to take on another year.

 Jeg er så heldig at være opvokset sted i Danmark hvor naturen er helt fantastisk. Noget af det bedste jeg ved er at tage mine forældres hund Enzo med ud i bakkerne ved Sindbjerg & Stoubjerg. Det ligger lige bag togskinnerne som går fra Silkeborg til Århus og det er, efter min mening, et af det smukkeste steder i verden. Den jyske hede er et helt særligt sted og selvom jeg ville ønske det lige nu var dækket i sne er det stadig det dejligste sted at gå en tur. Jeg håber i har haft en skøn juleaften og at den var præcis som i ønsker den – rigtig glædelig jul til jer alle sammen!

english: I am so lucky to have been raised a place in Denmark where the nature is beyond amazing. One of the best things in the world is taking my parents dog, Enzo, with me to the hill side Sindbjerg & Stoubjerg. It lies behind the railroad from Silkeborg to Århus and it is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful places in the world. The moors of Jutland is a very special place and eventhough I wish it was covered in snow right now, it’s still a breathtaking place to take a walk. I hope your Christmas eve and Christmas morning was beautiful and exactly the way you wanted it – I wish you a merry Christmas once again.

Armene over hovedet, nu er det endelig juleferie og vi er på vej hjem! December har føltes som et langt sejt træk hen mod en ferie som har virket så langt væk, men nu er det endelig tid. Mailen er sat på auto reply og de sidste blogposts for 2017 er planlagt og sendt afsted ud i det tomme ingenting. Sebastian og jeg har været så ualmindeligt priviligeret at få lov at prøvekøre den nye Peugeot 308 GTI henover juleferien og jeg glæder mig så meget! Tripper som et barn for at få lov at køre den! Den er bare så mega blæret og vi kommer til at flyve henover Danmark på vej hjem, jeg kan næsten ikke vente!

english: Hands up! It’s finally the Christmas holiday and we are on our way home. December has felt soo long, so many things to get done before a vacation that just seemed so far away. But it’s finally time. My email has been set to auto reply and all the blogposts of 2017 have been planned and sent off into cyber space. Sebastian and I have been so incredibly privileged to be able to test drive the new Peugeot 308 GTI over the holidays and I am giddy like a little child to drive it! It’s no less than super cool and I can’t wait to fly across Denmark, driving home for Christmas.

MY CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS

Shirt / Pieszak, Scarf / Becksöndergaard, Flats / Jimmy Choo

Så er der ikke længe til, jul er lige om lidt og jeg ved stadig ikke hvad jeg skal have på. Jeg tænker blush, men det er jo egentlig ikke særlig jule agtigt er det vel? Jeg sad den anden dag og kom sådan til at tænke på alle de ting jeg glæder mig til ved julen. Og tænkte så også i den anledning om andre også har traditioner ligesom jeg har? Det er ikke engang dem alle sammen som er familie traditioner, nogen af dem er også mine egne. Jeg har listet dem herunder, hvad er jeres?

english: Christmas is just around the corner and I still dont know what to wear. I am thinking blush, but thats not very Christmas is it? I was just thinking the other day about all the things I look forward to during Christmas. And then I thought about all the things other people do for Christmas, I wonder if it’s the same as mine? Mine aren’t even all family traditions, some are my own. I have made a little list down below, what are yours? 

 1. Baking with grandpa

2. Baking a second time with grandpa because everyone ate all the cookies

3. Watching “A Christmas romance” over and over

4. Filling my cookie jar with store bought brown cookies (love all the sugar they use)

5. Listening to various Christmas lists on Spotify

6. Picking up the Christmas tree with my dad

7. Wrapping Christmas presents

8. Taking a walk on Christmas day

9. Give my parents dog a red bow on for the festivities

10. Having Christmas eve with my family

MY PERFECT WEEKEND

Weekend er et skønt ord, “ugen ender” og nu har du fri. Da jeg var barn kunne jeg ikke rigtig kende forskel på uger og weekender, da jeg gik i gymnasiet sov jeg hele weekenden, da jeg flyttede til København gik jeg ture i weekenden (og sov) og nu er vi tilbage til at jeg ikke rigtig kan kende forskel på uger og weekender. Det skal ikke være en hemmelighed at når man er selvstændig, særligt ny selvstændig, at man arbejder rigtig meget så derfor skal man huske at holde weekend. Denne weekend er dog anderledes da jeg passer hund og derfor har glædet mig til at putte med den i sofaen og gå lange ture. Der er intet bedre end en hund, jeg sværger den slår Chanel tasker flere kilometer i min verden – jeg elsker lyden af deres poter på trægulv og deres dejlige dybe øjne! UH det er skønt, denne weekend er ren hygge (og kun lidt arbejde). God weekend til jer også!

english: Weekend is a wonderful word, “the week ends” og now you are off the hook. When I was a child I couldn’t really tell weeks and weekends apart, when I was in high school I slept the whole weekend, when I moved to Copenhagen I would walk around on the weekends (and sleep too) and now we are back to me not really being able to tell weather it’s Monday or Saturday. When you run your own business, especially a new one, it’s natural to work a lot so it’s important to remember to actually have a weekend. This weekend though, is different, because I am dog sitting! There is nothing better than a dog, it’s miles better than any Chanel bag in my world – I love the way their paws make little noises as they walk on wooden floor and their deep amazing eyes. OH it’s just wonderful, this weekend is going to be cozy (and only some work). Have a nice weekend all!

I dag er det min fødselsdag, 23 år bliver jeg og det er sgu underligt. Jo længere væk jeg kommer fra at være under 20 jo mere skræmmer det mig, ikke fordi jeg er bange for at blive gammel, tværtimod det er kanon, men det ikke at være et barn længere, at barndommen for alvor er slut – det er sgu underligt. Jeg elskede at være barn men så vidt jeg kan forstå på mange af mine venner så har de næsten ikke kunne vente med at blive voksne og skulle blive dem selv – but why? Jeg vil helst bare være 9 år igen, det var sgu hyggeligt. MEN here I am – 23 år, og det er ikke dårligt! Hvad mon man kan tillade sig at købe til sig selv i fødselsdagsgave? hmmm…

english: It’s my birthday today, 23 years old and that’s weird you guys. The further I move from being under the age of 20 the more scared I get, not because I am afraid of getting older, no thats awesome and a privilege but the whole, not being a child anymore and that the whole childhood fase of life is over, that’s so weird! I loved being a child, it was the greatest but I get the feeling that most of my friends kinda just wanted it all to be over and move on to their 20’s – why though? I just want to be 9 again, now that was something. BUT here I am – 23 years old and that’s not so bad. I wonder what would be appropriate to buy for one self on this particular day? hmmm..

BAE HAS A BIRTHDAY

Min søde, dejlige mand Sebastian fylder 23 i dag, Tillykke skat!! Jeg har ikke delt særlig meget hverken her eller på andre sociale platforme om vores forhold fordi helt ærlig, der er ikke så meget at sige. Vi skændes aldrig og der er meget lidt drama i vores liv – kedeligt I know! Men jeg har lige skrevet 5 små ting om ham eller os nedenfor nu da det er en særlig anledning!

english: My sweet, beautiful man Sebastian is turning 23 today, Happy Birthday baby! I have not been very sharing about our relationship because there is actually not that much to say, we never argue and there is never any drama to tell you – I am sorry! BUT here are 5 things about us you didn’t know – just because it is a special occasion. 

1. We have known each other (not dated but known) since we were 16.

2. We are equally tall even though Sebastian would strongly disagree on this.

3. Sebastian cares just as much about clothes as me.

4. We live together in Copenhagen, but we are both from Jutland.

5. Sebastian always tells me if my lipstick color isn’t right and I love that about him!

BTW Sebastian blogs about mens wear over at Jesuissebastian.com so if you want to get to know him a little better, go check him out.

HAPPY EASTER

_MG_8162

Pussy Bow shirt from Cacharel 

Denne uge har jo været den officielle påske ferie i Danmark – Jeg har altid elsket den her tid efter jul hvor man har en milliard ferier og man vidste ikke rigtig hvorfor. Jeg har opholdt mig hos mine forældre hele ugen, ikke rigtig taget fri bare arbejdet, men stadig rart at få en pause fra hverdagen. Plus, som du sikkert læste i går, har mine forældre fået en lille påske hvalp og mens de er på arbejde kan jeg tage mig af hende, faktisk ligger hun og snorker i sin kurv lige nu. På fredag vi har en stor familie middag (vi er 4 søskende), og så er jeg på vej tilbage til København i slutningen af ugen! Åh jeg vil savne lille Tesla så meget! Av! God påske derude!

english: This week has been the official “easter holiday week” in Denmark – I always loved this time when I was in school, so nice to get a holiday even though to most danes easter is really just about the color yellow and some chickens, not really religion. I have stayed at my parents house all week, not really taking time off, just working but still nice to get a break from the everyday. Plus, as you probably read yesterday, my parents got a little easter puppy and while they are at work I can take care of her, actually she is snoring in her little bed as we speak. On friday we are having a big family dinner (we are 4 siblings) and then I will be returning to Copenhagen at the end of the week! Oh I am gonna miss the little pup so much! Ouch!

MEET TESLA

Tesla

Som nogen af jer måske har luret på instagram (og på snapchat) så har familien Jernov fået et nyt familie medlem, nemlig Tesla (ja som bilen, præcis som bilen). Vi hentede hende i Nyborg i lørdags og hun skal bo i Silkeborg hos min mor og far – desværre! Jeg vil også have en, jeg er helt hundeskruk! Nå, men jeg fik nogle spørgsmål til hendes race som jeg tænkte jeg lige ville gentage her, hun er en Welsh Spring Spaniel, i kan læse om racen her. Forbered jer på massive hunde billeder, særligt på snapchat (@mariajernov)!

english: As some of you may have noticed on instagram (and snapchat) the Jernov family has gotten a new family member! Her name is Tesla (yes like the car) we picked her up in Nyborg this saturday and she is going to live in Silkeborg with my parents, oh so sad! I want one too – I ache for a dog! But anyway, I got some questions about her breed, she is a Welsh Springer Spaniel – you can read about it here. Be prepared to be massively attacked with dog photos, especially on snapchat!

NEW CHAPTER

BeFunky Collage

ELLE Denmark

I dag er en ny dag, men ikke hvilken som helst dag. Det er en dag som jeg både har set frem til men som jeg også har frygtet skulle komme selvom jeg har vidst at den skulle komme i efterhånden mange måneder. Mit barsels vikariat på ELLE er ovre og det er tid til at starte et nyt eventyr. Det har været 1,5 år med udfordringer, fantastiske kollegaer og jeg går herfra med ikke mindre end en rygsæk fuld af oplevelser (måske mere end crossover, jeg er ikke så meget en rygsæk type). Kære ELLE og alle ELLEingerne, tak for jer, tak for alt og tak for en fantastisk start på min karriere. Jeg vil sætte pris på min tid sammen med jer for evigt!

english: Today is a new day, but not just an ordinary day. It’s a day that I have both looked forward to but also dreaded. My time at ELLE Denmark is over and it is time for me to start a new adventure. It has been 1,5 years with challenges, amazing colleagues and I walk away from it all with a backpack full of awesome experiences, (prehaps more a crossover of some sort, I am not the backpack type really). Dear ELLE and amazing ELLE girls, thank you for you, thanks for everything and thank you for a great start to my career. I will treasure my time with you forever!
