Tænk at det allerede er 1 december. Så går turen hjem igen mod smukke Danmark. Los Angeles har været fantastisk. Fantastisk som altid. 3 måneder og en del overvægt (i kufferten) senere og her sidder i lufthavnen igen. Kigger ud over flypladsen og forbereder mig på den lange tur forude. Heldigvis er håndbagagen fyldt med snacks og vores fly er endnu engang pink. Det gør det hele lidt mere overskueligt. Det er altid dejligt at starte og slutte mine ture til USA på samme måde, nemlig sammen med WOW air. De er efterhånden min trofaste følgesvend når jeg skal ud i den store verden eller hjem fra den. Tak til jer som har fulgt med på mit lille eventyr. Vi ses på den anden side!

english: I can’t believe it’s already the 1st of December. That means it’s time to go home to beautiful Denmark. Los Angeles was amazing. Simply amazing. 3 months and some extra kilo’s (in my suitcase) later and here I am at the airport again. Looking over the passing planes and preparing myself for the long journey ahead. Luckily my carry on is packed with snacks and there is a pink airplane waiting to take me home. It makes it all a little sweeter. I always find comfort in starting and ending my travels the same, and that’s with WOW air. They have come to be my faithful travel buddies everytime I go out in to the big world, or return from it. Thanks to everyone who has followed me on my little adventure. See you on the other side!

Kender du det når jeans er alfa og omega? Jeans kan få dig til at få det mega, vanvittig godt med dig selv og de kan få dig til at føle dig helt ved siden af. Er det ikke rigtigt? Dårlige jeans er lig med dårlig dag. Gode jeans er lig med lykke – så meget lykke endda, at man nogengange tænker at man ikke behøver at have ret meget mere på. Personligt går jeg meget op i kvaliteten af den denim som er blevet brugt til mine jeans. Jeg kan godt lide ægte denim, helst ikke med stræk og gerne den næsten rå slags hvor man kan se når man har gået med dem, men også hvor man kan se når de er helt nye. Closed jeans har længe været et af mine go to mærker, også længe før jeg var blogger. De har tonsvis af modeller som omfavner mange typer kroppe og heldigvis også de lange, tynde som mig. Gode jeans, så behøver man ikke have mere på, gør man?

english: You know that feeling when jeans are just alfa and omega? Jeans can make you feel incredibly good about yourself just like they can also make you feel quite shitty. It’s true right? Bad jeans equal a bad day, good jeans equal happiness – so much so you sometimes feel like you don’t need to wear much more than just those perfect jeans. Personally I care a great deal about the quality of the denim used to create the jeans I wear. I like real denim, not the stretchy kind. I like it when they feel kinda raw and you can see how much they have been worn or how little they have been worn, yet. Closed jeans have been one of my go to jean brands for many years, also long before I became a blogger. They have many models that fit many types and luckily also the tall, skinny kind like me. Good jeans, you don’t need (to wear) much else, right?

TIP | MALIBU FARM

Malibu Farm
23000 Pacific Coast Hwy
Malibu, CA 90265

Der er mange mennesker i mit liv jeg godt kunne tænke mig at vise dette fantastiske sted til. Hver gang jeg besøger det kommer jeg i tanker om endnu en person som ville elske det. Derfor synes jeg dette er (endnu) et godt sted at lave et lille tip om. Den seneste jeg tog med ud til Malibu Farm var min dejlige storebror Frederik som besøgte mig i forrige uge. Han synes også det var et skønt sted. Malibu farm ligger på “the Malibu pier” – altså på en af de mange berømte piers som ligger langs kysten. Det var faktisk Mia som viste mig stedet. Jeg var aldrig selv gået derind. Ikke fordi det ikke ser dejligt ud (for det gør det) men fordi at de fleste restauranter som ligger på pier’s normalt er turistfælder og hverken særligt lækre eller særligt prisvenlige. Det er jo desværre ofte “prisen” man må betale for at spise tæt ved vandet, med mindre man ved lige præcis hvor man skal gå hen. MEN dette sted er ikke reglen men undtagelsen (til den som lige forstod min “he is just not that into you” reference, du er for sej!). Malibu Farm er drevet af en yndig dame, hun hedder Helene og er til at finde rundt omkring på stedet. Malibu Farm er drevet kun af lokale penge og kræfter og kvaliteten af maden er helt i top. Man kan læse sig til hvor alt du putter i munden er fra og det i sig selv, synes jeg er rimelig fantastisk. Folk surfer på begge sider af pieren og du kan høre bølgerne slå ind mod træ pælene under dig mens du spiser. Denne lille lokale perle fanger den stemning Californien er så kendt for og er helt sikkert et besøg (eller 2) værd.

english: There are many people in my life I would love to show this amazing place to. Every time I visit it, I always think of someone new to take and yet another person I know who would love it. That’s why this place is (also) worth making a little tip about. The latest person I brought to Malibu Farm was my awesome older brother Frederik who visited me a couple of weeks ago. He was quite smitten too. Malibu farm is located at the Malibu pier. It was actually Mia who showed me the place. I had never entered it myself. Not because it doesn’t look lovely (because it does) but because most restaurants located on piers are turist traps that are both not very delicious (food vise) or very price friendly. But that unfortunately is often the price you must pay to eat close to water, unless you know exactly where to go. But this place is not the rule but the exception (to whoever got the “he is just not that into you” reference in there, I salute you). Malibu Farm is run by a lovely lady named Helene who you will see around the place. It’s run by local hands and money and you can read where everything you eat is from. Which I think is pretty spectacular. People are surfing on both sides of the pier and you can hear the waves underneath you as they run through the wooden structure of the pier. This little local treasure really captures that famous “california vibe” that everybody comes here to experience. It’s definitely worth a visit (or two).

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!

TIP | CARRERA CAFE

Carrera Cafe
8251 Melrose Avenue
Los Angeles

Ciao Bella(s)! Endnu et lille tip herfra the city of angels – mange flere på vej! Der er så mange ting at se og lave, så mange steder at spise. Jeg vil så gerne dele det hele med jer! Lad os starte med en af tidens største instagram favoritter. Ryan Gosling kaffen, den her du nok set rundt omkring på nettet. Den er lige her i L.A. Det her er Carrera Café, beliggende på Melrose Avenue – denne café er det nye it sted. Stemningen er tjekket og placeringen er sublim. Et super sted at stoppe for at få en kaffe eller en lille snack mens du shopper rundt i Melrose / Fairfax området. Ryan Gosling kaffen er kun ét af de mange motiver du kan vælge. Du kan få en I heart L.A, den grædende Kim K eller en Ciao Bella – you name it! God fornøjelse!

english: Ciao Bella(s)! Yet another travel tip from the city of angels – don’t worry, many more to come. There are so many things to do, so much to see and so many places to eat. I want to share them all with you! Let’s start out with a recent Instagram favorite, shall we? The Ryan Gosling coffee? YES it’s right here in L.A. Step into the Carrera Café on Melrose avenue. Clean lines, funny décor and great coffee, is what they are good at here. The vibe is easy and the location is sublime. A great place to stop in for a coffee or a snack while you are shopping in the Melrose / Fairfax area. The Ryan Gosling motive is just one out of many you can choose from. You can get the I heart L.A, the crying Kim K, the Ciao Bella – you name it, they’ve got it! Enjoy!

TIP | THE MELROSE TRADING POST

The Melrose trading post
Read more here

Nogen ting kommer før andre. Indrøm det nu bare, når man vender tilbage til et sted man har været mange gange er der en lille routine. Nogen ting man lige skal fordi ellers er det som om man ikke helt er tilbage endnu. Når jeg lander i L.A skal jeg altid have en glazed donut (gerne så hurtigt så muligt), besøge Griffith Observatory, se Santa Monica pier and aflægge visit på Melrose tranding post. Jeg tror mange som besøger L.A ved mange fine ting om byen men knap så mange kender til Melrose tradig post. Så jeg føler det er min pligt at oplyse jer om denne skat. Hver søndag, i regn eller solskind, bliver parkeringpladsen foran Fairfax highschool indtaget af utallige telte. Placeringen er genial, lige mellem Melrose og Fairfax avenue. Der er ikke et sejere sted du kunne befinde dig på en søndag. Smykker, musik, vintage tøj, møbler, mad – hvad end dit L.A hjerte begærer. Dette er hvor du finder det. Du kan også være heldig at spotte et par celebrities, de flakker ofte rundt her på en søndag! Det er også et genialt sted at shoppe vintage denim, aflagt militær tøj og über cool band t-shirts, du ved de helt originale. Det er en stor skattejagt med god udsigt til fangst hver gang. God fornøjelse!

english: First thing first. There’s always a few things that you just need to do when visiting a place you love. A routine if you will. When I return to L.A I always want a glazed donut (ASAP this one), visit Griffith Observatory, see the Santa Monica pier and go to the Melrose tranding post. Otherwise I simply don’t feel like I am really here yet. It has come to my attention that while many of you know many things about L.A, you don’t all know what the Melrose Trading post is. So I feel it is my duty to enlighten you. Every sunday, rain or shine, a huge flea market takes over the Fairfax high school parking lot. Located in between Fairfax and Melrose avenue it is the coolest place to be on a sunday. Jewelry, vintage clothing, furniture, food, music – everything L.A cool you can think of is probably there. Also if you are lucky, celebrity spotting is not uncommon at the market. It’s also a genius place to shop vintage denim, old military clothing (the real kind) and über cool band t-shirts. It’s one big treasure hunt! Enjoy!

I’M MOVING TO LOS ANGELES

Er du gal det er en underlig titel at skrive. Jeg flytter faktisk til L.A – det er jo så vildt! I morgen, d. 5 september flytter jeg til den anden side af jorden og jeg kommer først hjem til jul. Jeg har ikke sagt meget om denne tur. Jeg tror ikke helt jeg har troet det selv. Men, here I am, nu er det tid. Jeg har fået en fantastisk mulighed for at arbejde med nogle spændende brands “over there” så jeg og en af mine absolut bedste veninder, Mia, rejser afsted. L.A giver mulighed for at komme lidt tættere på mine amerikanske læsere og skabe noget helt anderledes content end normalt. Det er ikke hver dag man får sådan en mulighed. Mia og jeg kommer til at få den bedste tid, jeg ved det bare, hun er solid gold! I morgen boarder jeg endnu engang et af de der über seje pink WOW fly, de har stadig de bedste priser! Sebastian og jeg fløj med dem til L.A i april og havde sådan en fed tur at jeg synes vi skulle flyve med dem igen! Læs mere om WOW her. 3 måneder er lang tid at være væk så jeg kommer selvfølgelig til at pakke en hel hel hel masse! Jeg vil ikke gennemgå det hele men dog lige gå over nogle af de ting jeg bestemt ikke kan leve uden. Først, ingen Maria uden behagelige sneakers, min micellar water fra L’oréal (for den findes ikke bedre) og selvfølgelig salte fisk! Vi snakkes venner!

english: Wow, that was such a weird title to write. I am actually moving to L.A – that’s so crazy! Tomorrow, the 5th of September I am moving to the other side of the earth and I won’t be home until Christmas. I have been keeping this from all of you for quite a while. I suppose I havn’t really believed it myself. But here I am telling you. It’s huge. I have gotten an amazing opportunity to work with some great brands abroad, so me and one of my absolute best friends, Mia, is going for the rest of 2017. This trip also gives me a chance to connect with my american readers and create new and exciting content, which I am really looking forward to. I can’t wait. Me and Mia are going to have the best time, I just know it – she is pure gold. Tomorrow I will once again be boarding one of those awesome pink WOW airplanes that I love, they still have the best prices! Sebastian and I flew with them to L.A in april and I loved the trip so much I wanted to fly with them again! Read more about WOW air here. 3 months is a long time to be away so of course I will be packing my ass off today – here is a little snapshot of what I will be bringing. I won’t name it all but a few things I can’t live without is comfy sneakers, my micellar water from L’oréal (it’s too good!) and of course salty fish candy. Talk soon friends!

Restaurant Ojala
Calle de San Andrés, 1, 28004 Madrid
Read more here

Jeg er nødt til at state med at sige at jeg indeed har brudt en regel ved at ligge dette post op. Jeg bruger aldrig, aldrig, ALDRIG iPhone billeder på min blog – og det er ikke ment som et diss til folk der gør det men på min platform er det et no go. Men her er grunden til jeg gjorde en undtagelse og hvorfor, at det her blogpost er vigtigt! På vores sidste aften i Madrid havde vi besluttet at vores middag skulle være work free – det skal de altså nogengange være. Men oh hvad gør man når det sidste sted man spiser er det bedste?! Vi stødte på den her lille restaurant på hjørnet af et eller andet spansk og noget andet spansk da vi var på vej hen til et bao sted jeg havde læst om på nettet. Sebastian stoppede op og sagde “Se hvor lækkert det der sted ser ud!” jeg blev selvfølgelig øjeblikkelig fornærmet, slog med nakken og sagde “jamen hvis du ikke gider spise bao så skal du da bare sige det.” (meget typisk mig) – så min søde mand sagde så at vi jo selvfølgelig skal spise bao så vi gik videre. Bao stedet var så lukket om mandagen fordi en hvis rødhåret person ikke havde gjort hendes research godt nok. Sebastian lyste op og sagde “ejj kan vi så godt spise der hvor det så så dejligt ud?!” Hvad skulle jeg sige? Nej? Så vi gik til bare og god dammit han havde ret, det så virkelig lækkert ud. Det smagte fantastisk, det var virkelig venligt prissat og stedet havde en vidunderlig atmosphere. Menuen var en blanding af spanish, mexicansk og amerikansk. Stedet var fyldt til renden hele tiden og af god grund. Vi fik 3 forretter, 3 hovedretter, en kande lemonade og 2 flasker vand for 40 euros. Jeg følte mig næsten en smule ked af det, velvidende at jeg ikke kunne spise der on the regular. Men hvis du er i Madrid anbefaler jeg virkelig denne fine restaurant, det var super skønt, insta venligt og pakkede med lokale. God fornøjelse!

english: First thing first, I have broken a rule with this post. I never ever post pictures on my blog that are taken with an iPhone – and that is not meant as an insult to those who do that on their blogs BUT for my platform it is a no go. But here is why I made the exception and why, therefore, this blogpost is important! On our last night in Madrid we went out to dinner and we decided it would be work free – sometimes it needs to be, right? But oh what do you do when the last place you eat is the best?! We stumbled upon this little restaurant on the corner of something and something as we were headed to a Bao place that I had read about online. Sebastian stopped and said, “wow that looks so nice!”, I instantly got offended saying “well if you don’t want the Bao you can just say so!” (typical me response) – so sweet as my man is, we went on to the Bao place that was of course closed on Mondays because I hadn’t done my research properly. Sigh. Sebastian almost glowed as he said “can we eat at that place with the plants outside then?!”. What was I gonna say? No? So we went back and god dammit he was right, it did look amazing. It also tasted amazing, was greatly priced and just had the most fantastic atmosphere. The menu was a mixture of everything good. There was some Spanish dishes, some Mexican dishes and some good old American burgers.  The place was completely stuffed and for good reason. We had 3 starters to share, 3 main courses, a chug of lemonade and 2 bottles of water for only 40 euros. I almost felt sorry for myself that I couldn’t eat there on the regular – it was just wonderful. If you are in Madrid I can only recommend this place, it was a truely authentic, super insta friendly and packed with locals! Enjoy!

PARTY AT THE PALACE

Top / Gina Tricot (shop here), Skirt / Topshop (shop here), Bag / Balenciaga, Sandals / Chanel

Jewelry /
Signet ring / Bodil Binner
Diamond hoops / 77 diamonds (shop here)

Jeg er nødt til at indrømme at jeg faktisk ikke er så meget til sightseeing. Ikke fordi det ikke er spændende, jeg har bare en anden måde at se byer på. Jeg elsker bare at gå, ud i det blå og så ser man det man ser. MEN – undtagelser må laves en gang i mellem og min undtagelse er altid, at hvis jeg kan komme ind og se en eller anden form for palads, et slot eller anden kongelig bolig, så gør jeg det. Det skal ikke være nogen hemmelighed at jeg ligesom mange andre piger altid har drømt om en dag at skulle giftes med en prins, gå i de store kjoler og danse i slotssalen. Ak ja, Disney har ikke eksisteret forgæves! Paladset i Madrid var storslået, smukt og overdådigt. Man måtte ikke tage billeder i selve paladset men ude i “gården” fik vi hurtigt snappet nogen alligevel. Hvis du er fra europa er der forskellige tidspunkter på ugen hvor du kan komme ind og se paladset helt gratis, du skal bare huske dit pas! Det er virkelig turen værd!

english: I have to admit, I’m not really a sightseeing type a gal. Not because it can’t be a good way to see the city but it’s not for me. I love to just walk out the door, into the blue and see what I see. BUT – exceptions are here to be made right? Is that how that saying goes? Anyway, you know what I mean. Whenever I get the chance to see a palace or any kind of royal sort of housing, I take it. I, like many girls, have dreamt of the day I would marry a prince, wear the flawless dresses and dance in the ballroom. Ah yes, Disney was put on this earth for a reason. The palace in Madrid was grand, beautiful and lavish. It’s not allowed to photograph inside the palads so we sneaked a couple of snaps in the court yard. If you are european there are different time sloths a week were you can see the palace for free, just bring your passport! It’s worth the trip!
