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).

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!

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!

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!

“Bedste taco’s i…” er nok en af mine mest googled sætninger når jeg er ude og rejse. Det er seriøst bare en af de lækreste ting at putte i munden (pun intended) – så vi gik rundt der i Venice og så det her lille skur agtige sted med et skilt udenfor hvor der stod “bedste tacos i Venice”. Det er noget af et statement hva? Altså nu har jeg jo ikke smagt alle tacos i Venice men jeg vil sige det sådan her. Vi var i LA i 8 dage og spiste der 3 gange. Jeg siger det bare. Sæt det her sted på din liste over steder du skal spise (jeg ved du har sådan en!) og gem den til din næste tur til LA. Du vil ikke fortryde det.

english: “Best tacos in…” is probably one of my most googled sentences when I travel. It’s just one of the best things to put in ones mouth (pun intended) – so here we were, wondering around Venice and we saw this little woodshed looking place with a sign that said “best tacos in Venice”. That’s quite a statement huh? Now since I haven’t eaten at all the taco places in Venice I cannot confirm that statement. But, I will say this. We stayed in Los Angles for 8 days and we went back to Tocaya 3 times. Just saying. Put this on your “places to eat” list (I know you have one!) and save it for the next time you visit LA. You won’t regret it.

Jeg havde en meget interessant samtale med en af mine veninder fredag eftermiddag. Hun havde lige været på weekend tur i Amsterdam og sagde til mig “kender du det når man besøger et sted og med det samme får man en følelse af at man bare kunne leve der?” Det kender jeg bestemt. Det er ikke mange steder i verden man får det sådan med, ihvertfald ikke mig. Jeg mener, jo jeg synes da det er skønt at besøge Paris og jeg holder da meget af Milano, og når jeg f.eks. tager hjem til Silkeborg hvor jeg voksede op er det fantastisk fordi jeg elsker min familie men der er ingen af de steder der nogensinde har givet mig følelsen af at høre til som sådan. Det var lige indtil jeg mødte verdens berømte Los Angeles. Det var kærlighed ved første blik, jeg besøgte L.A første gang da jeg var 16 og det er det sted jeg har besøgt aller mest siden. Det får mig til at føle mig større, bedre, roligere, fri, som om jeg ikke kan gå i stykker og mange andre ting men det får mig også til at føle mig langt væk hjemmefra. Hvorfor kunne det ikke have været New York jeg var forelsket i?! Det er meget tættere på. Jeg bliver altid lidt blue når jeg kommer hjem fra L.A. Jeg græder endda når vi letter – hver eneste gang. Some things never change!

english: I had a very interesting conversation with one of my friends this friday afternoon. She had just visited Amsterdam on a weekend getaway and she said to me “you know when you really just get that feeling about a city, like you could really just be you there?”. I know exactly what thats like. It’s not many places in the world one feels that way about, not me at least. I mean sure I think Milan is wonderful and I love to visit Paris, and going home to Silkeborg where I grew up is fantastic because I love my family but non of those places has ever given me that sense of “belonging”. Until I met the famous Los Angeles. It was love at first sight, I visited the first time when I was 16 and it’s probably the place I have traveled to the most since then. It makes me feel, bigger, better, calmer, free, unbreakable and many more things but it also makes me feel far away from home. Why couldn’t it have been New York I fell in love with?! It’s so much closer. The L.A blues always come over me when I get home, I even cry on the plane as it takes of – every single time. Some things never change!

At flyve er en ting jeg holder meget af. Lige fra at booke turen og pakke kufferten til at stå i lufthavnen og sidde i flyet. Det er alt sammen en del af oplevelsen når man rejser, det er ikke kun destinationen. Når man rejser lige så meget som mig prøver man alle mulige forskellige airlines og hver gang jeg skal prøve en ny en glæder jeg mig! Der er jo så mange! Denne gang havde vi fornøjelsen af at flyve med det nye WOW air til Los Angeles, et selskab jeg endnu ikke havde haft fornøjelsen af at flyve med. Jeg har dog længe gerne ville da jeg er helt besat af deres pink fly! De er selv super dygtige på sociale medier og har en sej instagram profil som gjorde jeg slet ikke kunne vente med at flyve med dem. WOW air er et islandsk lavprisselskab som specialisere sig i at flyve de lange ture til super billige priser. New York fra 1.985 kr, Boston fra 999 kr, San Fransisco fra 1.099 kr – I mean what? Jeg tager hatten af for at nogen har gjort det til sin vision at alle skal kunne være ægte globetrottere uden at smadre sin opsparing, det super god stil! Der er ikke TV skærme i sæderne på nogen af WOW’s fly men opladnings muligheder til både computer, ipad og telefon på hele rejsen! Og så er der god benplads. Jeg har ihvertfald et par steder på kloden jeg snart kan få krydset af når det er så billigt at komme dertil! TAK til WOW air for at gøre det muligt for os at komme til L.A! Det var en fornøjelse.

english: To fly is something I sincerely enjoy. From booking the trip and packing a suitcase to be in the airport and actually be in the plane. It’s all apart of the experience when traveling, it’s not just the destination. When you travel as much as I do you get to try tons of different airlines and everything I get to try one I haven’t tried before, I am so excited! There are so many! This time I had the pleasure of flying with the new airline, WOW air, to Los Angeles. An airline I had yet not had the pleasure of flying with. I have wanted to for a while though as I am just obsessed with their pink airplanes! Also they are super skilled at social media so I couldn’t wait to fly with them after seeing their profile on instagram. WOW air is an Icelandic low fare airline who specializes in flying the long routes for less money. New York from 1.985 kr, Boston from 999 kr, San Fransisco from 1.099 kr – I mean what? I applaud companies who makes it easier for people to live out their travel dreams without wrecking their wallets. There are no TV’s on the plane but plenty of charging stations for computer, iPad and iPhone for the whole trip! And good legroom! I have some places I now see possible to get crossed of my travel bucket list! Thank you WOW air for making it possible for us to fly yo L.A this easter! It was a pleasure!

2 timer nord for Los Angeles ligger smukke Santa Barbara. Jeg havde endnu ikke selv været der men mine forældre har og sagde at jeg ville elske den lille spansk inspirerede by så, afsted med mig. Turen derop var skøn, svingende og der var smuk udsigt langt hen af vejen. Santa Barbara var ren og pæn med lave huse og en hyggelig shopping gade. Der var idyllisk og det var lige hvad jeg havde brug for. Et pusterum. Bevares, L.A er fantastisk, men den er også halv larmende, beskidt og fyldt med biler. Santa Barbara var noget helt andet. Midt i byen fandt vi denne fuldstændig betagende trappe. Jeg måtte bare få taget billeder på den, også selvom den var i fuld sol. Sådan noget kraftigt lys kan stadigvæk være lidt svært for mig at styre men det lykkedes heldigvis. Ellers skulle jeg have ventet hele dagen på at den kom i skygge for skydes, det skulle den.

english: 2 hours north of Los Angles lies the beautiful city of Santa Barbara. I hadn’t been there yet but my parents have and they said I would absolutely love it so, away I went. The ride up there was gorgeous as expected. The roads were curvy and the view was spectacular most of the way. Santa Barbara was beautiful, clean and heavily influenced by spanish culture. Yum! It was just what I needed, a breather. I mean, L.A is amazing no doubt but it’s also noisy, dirty and filled with cars. Santa Barbara is just the opposite. In the city center we found this beyond amazing set of stairs. I just HAD to get my photos taken on these steps even though the sun was coming down hard. I have to admit I still have trouble sometimes controlling harsh light like this but I managed. Luckily, otherwise we would have had to wait all day for the sun to move because I had to shoot on these stairs!
