Først Bali, så Cannes og så Kina. Der har været en del rejser og de er allerede ovre hvilket er underligt. Det hele går så stærkt. Men mange rejser betyder meget content så henover de næste uger vil i se lidt af hvert fra forskellige steder i verden. Dette outfit er skudt i Cannes og er et af mine yndlings, comfy, hverdags looks. Det var helt perfekt til en halv overskyet, gloomy dag – ligemeget hvor du er i verden. God fornøjelse!

english: First Bali, then Cannes and then China. There is a lot of travels that has come and gone and therefore also a lot of content so the next couple of weeks my blog will be a little all over the place (location wise that is) – just so you don’t get confused. Or I don’t, anyway now I’ve said it. This is probably one of my favorite, comfy – everyday looks. It’s shot in Cannes and was absolutely perfect for this gloomy spring/early summer weather. Enjoy!

Som du måske har set på instagram, har jeg og 3 veninder lige været et smut i Cannes og Monaco. Vi er så heldige i vores kreds at et familie medlem simpelthen ejer en lejlighed i Cannes så vi tog derned på forlænget weekend. Vi drak lidt Rosé, fik shoppet og så vendte vi snuden hjem igen mod København. Vi var i Monaco en dag, vores bildæk revnede og skulle skiftes (det tog lidt tid) men dagen endte alligevel godt med vino og snacks mens vi så solen gå ned over havet. Dette var mit “look of the day” – jeg er meget glad for denne kjole pt og selv helt obsessed med 90’er håret! God fornøjelse! 

english: As you might have seen on instagram, me and my 3 girlfriends just did a quick trip to Cannes and Monaco. We are so lucky to have family among us who owns an apartment in Cannes so we just went for a long weekend. Had some Rosé, did a little shopping and went back home to Copenhagen again. We went to Monaco for one day where we got a flat tire (which took a while to fix) but the day turned out great anyway and we ended up having snacks and drinks at a beautiful hotel, watching the sun set over the sea. This was my look of the day, I am currently obsessed with this dress and my 90’s hairstyle. Enjoy!

Peloton Supershop
No.46 Jln Raya Pantai Berawa
Berawa, Bali
Visit website here

Lets start this guide of with a true Canggu favorite and a place that is easy to love. With a stunning instagram, white marble tables and gorgeous food Peloton Supershop is a real breakfast homerun. Their bowls are tasty with a generous amount of toppings and their blue bowl is their signature best seller. It comes in a fresh coconut for extra flavor and is being photographed all over the place. They have a really nice selection of healthy shots and scooter parking just outside is super easy. Definitely worth a visit and it’s also my best friend Birgitte’s (who traveled with me to Bali) favorite place for bowls on this guide, and her taste is impeccable so enjoy!

B and I had really high hopes for this place, from outside it looks amazing and inside the decor is very insta friendly, the menu looks great and the place is pretty packed. But to be honest it wasn’t the best we tried. The bowls were kind of heavy with not a lot of flavor, the drinks were average and the toppings weren’t very interesting. Not really a place we went to twice but it was okay. We had the chocolate bowl and the charcoal bowl – meh!

Nalu Bowls
Jl. Batu Mejan No.88
Canggu, Kuta Utara, Bandung, Bali
Visit website here

Nalu bowls is a true instagram favorite, they have several locations and most people in Bali know what Nalu Bowls is. The interior of the place in Canggu is cute, very island vibe’ish and the bowls are very tasty. Be aware though that you have to add your toppings in this place, it’s kind of nice actually – it means you can build your own bowl and really only add what you like. But they don’t tell you this upfront so as you can see in the photo B and I got them with only the basic toppings that are included. This place is definitely worth a visit or two!

Milk & Madu
Jalan Pantai Berawa #52
Canggu, Bali
Visit website here

Milk and Madu is currently at a different location than they normally would be so if you go there right now, please note that it’s a pop up location. Milk and Madu is very strong in the avocado/eggs game but their bowls are also quite good. The vibe of the place is nice and a lot of people eat here. Their fruit is completely freshly cut and their coffee is very good! Their menu is big and there is something for everybody, a good place to eat as a family, there will be something for everybody.

Ruko Cafe
Jl. Pantai Berawa No.99,
Tibubeneng, Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali
No website

Ruko Cafe is a small, busy and noisy place that is always completely full. I might have driving by it everyday and the place always packed! The bowls are tasty, the toppings homemade and it’s very fresh. There are a few seats outside for grabs if you don’t like it too busy around you. This is also a good place to bring you man if you have dragged him to Bali because their bowls are big!

Bali Bowls

Last but definitely not least, my favorite breakfast place in Bali (so far). Bali Bowls is a cute two storage house with everything from breakfast to delicious nice cream. Their drinks, their bowls, their gluten free pancakes and superfood shots were all to die for. I loved all of it and just wanted to stay for hours. A slight breeze fills the little house on busy mornings and the staff is super nice and well informed about the food they are serving. You can also buy cute “Bali Bowls” t-shirts in the shop. The place is filled with local surfers and cool girls on scooters. It’s absolute heaven. A true must visit! Enjoy this beautiful place and send it a kiss from me when you pass by!

ALMOST TOO PRETTY

Dress / Custommade by Numbers

Kender i det når man ser en ting som bare er så smuk at man næsten ikke kan være i sig selv? Det behøver ikke være inde for mode, det kunne også være en bil, et smykke, en hest eller en smuk mand! Sådan havde jeg det med den her kjole fra første øjeblik jeg så den, det er nok et af de smukkeste stykker tøj jeg nogensinde har haft på. Det er næsten brude værdig. Oplagt var det derfor i mit hoved at gemme den til et magisk sted så jeg kunne skyde magiske billeder med den på. Eftermiddags lyset på Bali var helt fortryllende og lige ude for vores vila var der helt jungle agtigt og det var fuldstændig fantastisk at gå rundt der hver dag. Paradis findes virkelig. Kjolen er et af Custommades “by numbers” pieces hvilket betyder at der kun er lavet et begrænset antal af dem, den er endnu ikke på siden men hold øje via linket oven for! God fornøjelse!

english: Do you ever get that feeling when you see something really pretty? Like you almost can’t contain it. It’s too pretty? It can be a car, a piece of jewelry, a guy, a horse – you name it. It’s always the same feeling. From the moment I saw this dress at a press presentation a few months back, I had that feeling. Went right to my gut. It’s one of the most beautiful pieces of clothing I have ever worn, almost bridal worthy. Therefor it made a lot of sense in my head to find somewhere magical to shoot it. The afternoon light in Bali is absolutely mesmerizing and just outside our vila it was almost jungle like. Mix that together and you have a piece of paradise. The dress is by Custommade and is one of their “by numbers” pieces which means that there is only a few of them in the world. It is not yet on the website but keep an eye out via the link above, it’s coming. Enjoy!

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!

Carrera Cafe

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!

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.

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!
