På vores rejse til Thailand endte vi med at føle os ret tæt på Leonardo DiCaprio, udover at have besøgt stranden hvor The Beach er optaget kom vi også ved et tilfælde til at bo på det hotel i Old Phuket (som skal forestille at være Bangkok) hvor filmen The Beach også er optaget – nemlig hotellet “The momory at On On hotel” som er et meget gammelt og berømt hotel. Vi var så heldige at få lov at fotografere i suiten hvor Leo’s scener er optaget og der var sågar også et billede af unge Leo som sad i samme seng som på billederne, sejt! Holdt i meget romantisk men stram stil med hints af hvidt og blåt, The On On er et fuldstændig eventyrligt sted at tilbringe et par nætter og kan helt klart anbefales hvis man kommer forbi Old Phuket town. Find hotellet her.

english: Through out our journey in Thailand we ended up feeling quite connected to Leonardo DiCaprio as we not only visited the beach where the movie The Beach takes place but we also, quite randomly, ended up at the hotel where the Bangkok scenes of the movie were filmed, although it’s actually in Old Phuket town. It took place in a suite at “The memory at On On hotel” which is a very old and quite famous hotel, it’s kept in all blue and white with hints of color in amazing tiles and beautiful furniture, a very romantic place I would recommend to anybody visiting Old Phuket town, it’s almost a fairytale. We were lucky enough that we got to photograph in the suite and I got to sit on the bed Leo has sat on, there were even a photo of him next to the bed, sitting on the bed – so cool! You can find the hotel here.

Glædelig mandag alle sammen, jeg er tilbage med endnu et outfit fra Thailand – mød i den forbindelse min nyeste tilføjelse til min denim afdeling nemlig verdens sejeste nederdel fra Closed. Jeg vil indrømme at den var en anelse for varm til Thailand men ih hvor er jeg glad for den, jeg synes den er super stilet og et sejt alternativ til mini denim nederdelen (hvis nu man ikke er så meget til det) Husk at i kan shoppe den via linket oven for. Jeg er lige nu i fuld gang med at planlægge Roskilde festival hvor jeg har en masse spændende sager linet op, jeg glæder mig til at dele Roskilde (visuelt) med jer, og måske vi ses derude!

english: Happy Monday everybody, I am back with yet another outfit from Thailand which gives me a chance to introduce you to my newest addition to my denim family, this awesome long skirt from Closed. I admit it was a bit warm for Thailand but oh I love it so much, I think it’s so stylish and a cool alternative to the denim mini skirt (if that’s not really your thing) Remember you can shop it via the link above. I am right now in full on planning mode for Roskilde festival where alot of awesome stuff will hit the blog, I am very much looking forward to (virtually) sharing the festival with you, and maybe I will see you there?

Jeg er desværre ikke typen som researcher steder at spise hjemmefra inden jeg tager ud og rejse. Jeg elsker de mennesker der nærmest planlægger deres ferier efter hvor de gerne vil spise, det er så sejt. Jeg er mere typen som bliver rigtig sulten og ender med at tage det første sted jeg ser hvilket næsten altid er noget værre turistet pjat. Mad research er noget jeg skal blive bedre til. Dog faldt Sebastian og jeg over denne perle da vi var i Old Phuket, nemlig (åbenbart) legendariske Thai fusions restaurant Tu Kab Khao. Det var helt tilfældigt at vi gik forbi, der så bare så flot ud derinde at jeg måtte ind og kigge. Vi fik stukket et meget stort og uoverskueligt menukort i hånden hvor de engelske tekster nærmest var overskrevet med Thai, så vi bestilte (lidt i blinde) en masse af deres foretter og blev smask forelsket, så forelsket at vi endte med at spise der 3 gange på 3 dage. Stedet er holdt i syd Thailandsk villa stil med smukke gulve og store lækre møbler, helt sikkert en bucketlist restaurant og den er værd at planlægge sin ferie efter og så ligger det fantastiske On on memory hotel ligeover for, som vi boede på. Enjoy!

english: I am unfortunately not one of those super cool people who plan their vacations around selected restaurants, I am more of a “hey I am hungry, that looks ok” kinda gal which doesn’t always lead you to the most authentic places to eat. Food research is something I must get better at. Despite that, Sebastian and I stumbled upon this amazing (and apparently legendary) Thai fusion restaurant Tu Kab Khao in Old Phuket. We randomly walked past it our first night there just as we were looking for a place to eat, it was so pretty on the outside that I just had to take a peek inside. We got a very large (and quite confusing) menu card as we sat down in the beautiful surroundings, we ordered almost all their starters and fell oh so deeply in love with the place – so much that we came back to eat there 3 times in 3 days. The place is kept as an old southern Thai style villa with breathtaking floors and beautiful furniture, it is most definitely a place worth planning a trip to Old Phuket around and it is just across from the amazing On on memory hotel, that we stayed at. Enjoy!

Phuket – København, København – Phuket, det er sådan bloggen kommer til at køre et stykke tid, når man “kun” er afsted 10 dage men laver 30 blogposts må man jo blive ved med at lade bloggen leve på Phuket lidt endnu. Det tror jeg nu heller ikke den har noget imod. Sebastian og jeg brugte rigtig meget tid i Old Phuket på at gå rundt og bare se, der er så mange smukke gamle huse og stilen er helt særlig, næsten sådan gammel engelsk men endnu smukkere. Skodder i træ ved siden af vinduerne, gerne malet i sarte grå eller blå farver og enten helt spraglet farvet huse eller helt hvide med et twist. Det var meget smukt, dette outfit er inspireret af det hotel vi boede på som i kommer til at se mere til snart i andre blogposts, det var i sandhed et besøg værd. Stay tuned.

english: Phuket – Copenhagen, Copenhagen – Phuket, it seems that this is how the blog is gonna be going for a while, back and forth – you see when you are “only” away for 10 days but you make content for 30 then one will have to let the blog live in Thailand for a while, I don’t think it minds though. Sebastian and I used alot of our time in Old Phuket just looking, there were so many amazing old houses and the style there is something special. Almost old english style but even prettier. Wooden shutters in the window frame, kept in light greys or blues and the house would either be super colorful or kept in white with a twist. It was quite the place, this outfit is inspired by the hotel we stayed at which you will get to see more of soon, it was worth the visit. Stay tuned.

VITA LIBERATA TAN

All products from Vita Liberata
Self Tan Mousse (shop here), Gradual Lotion (shop here), Marula dry oil (shop here)

Location: Old Phuket Town

Mens jeg har været i Thailand har jeg fået lidt hjælp i hudfarve afdelingen, jeg kan ikke selv blive sådan rigtig brun, det er desværre nok bare en rødhåret ting, jeg kan højst blive en lille smule gylden men det tager meget længe, længere end den danske sommer vare. På grund af dette har jeg erfaret at hvis jeg får en spraytan inden jeg tager på ferie bliver jeg ikke forbrændt som jeg ellers er blevet så mange gange før, ikke fordi en spraytan eller self tan kan erstatte solcreme (for det er absolut ikke tilfældet!), men hvis du er meget solsart og du skal et sted hen hvor solen er endnu mere kraftig end her så prøv det, det har hjulpet mig rigtig meget. Nå men anyway, sådan en spraytan, som jeg fik af Vita Liberata, inden jeg tog til Thailand vare jo ikke evigt så mens jeg har været afsted har jeg brugt ovenstående produkter både for at holde min tan ved lige men også for at få den sol beskyttelse jeg har brug for. I Vita Liberatas Marula olie er der SPF 50 imens den giver glød og holder din tan ved lige, mega god kombo og jeg har brugt den flittigt på min ferie. Derudover har jeg også brugt deres SPF 50 i ansigtet, de har så super mange lækre produkter, hvis ikke du kender Vita Liberata så kan du se mere her. Happy tanning!

english: While I have been in Thailand I have gotten some help on the skin color front, I can’t really get tanned all by my self, I guess it’s a redhead thing, if I put a lot of time in it I might get slightly golden but it’s a process that the summer is not long enough for. I have also learned that if I get a spraytan before a vacation I won’t get burned like I have been so many times before, not because a spraytan substitutes for sunscreen (because that is not the case!) but it can help you if you are very sensitive to the sun, try it, it has helped me many times. Anyway, a spraytan like the one I got from Vita Liberata before heading to Thailand does not last forever so I have used the products above to keep it alive while also keeping up my SPF. Vita Liberata’s Marula oil has SPF 50 but also just a little bit of self tan so you can gradually built a tan and keep yourself protected, a product I have used a lot on my trip. Besides that I have used their SPF 50 on my face, they have so many awesome products, if you don’t really know Vita Liberata you can check them out here. Happy tanning!

Efter en regnfuld (og bølge fuld) tur fra Phi Phi til Phuket er vi endelig ankommet til Old Phuket Town – et sted jeg har glædet mig rigtig meget til at besøge. Det er kendt for sine mange farverige facader og små finurlige gader med mange fine små unikke shops. Vi ankom sen eftermiddag i går og har brugt HELE dagen i dag på at tage billeder, der er så meget at fotografere og sindsygt mange fede locations til at skyde outfits, jeg burde have taget mere tøj med! HA! jokes – jeg har haft tøj med til en måned (mindst) for jeg vidste der ville være så mange muligheder for seje baggrunde, gader, huse osv. Alle på hotellerne har spurgt hvorfor jeg har så meget baggage med. I morgen er vi allerede videre mod vores sidste hotel som er et lufthavns hotel, vi flyver nemlig super tidligt torsdag morgen. Jeg har forresten fået flettet mit hår i dag, jeg glæder mig til at vise jer det i morgen! Stay tuned.

english: After a rainy (and slightly wavy) boat ride from Phi Phi to Phuket we have finally arrived in Old Phuket Town – a place I have been very much looking forward to visiting. It’s known for it’s colorful facades and quirky little streets with many cute and unique shops. We arrived late afternoon yesterday and we have spend the entire day today taking photos to our blogs, there is so much to photograph and so many awesome locations for outfits, I should have brought more clothes! HA! jokes – I brought clothes with me to fit a month (at least) I knew there would be so many awesome backgrounds, streets, houses and so on. All hotels we have stayed at have asked why I have so much luggage. Tomorrow we are already on the road again, this time to our last stop – an airport hotel – we fly super early Thursday so it just makes more sense. I got my hair braided today BTW, I can’t wait to show you tomorrow. Stay tuned.

Phi Phi har taget mig med storm, på dette tidspunkt er jeg sikker på, at jeg kunne blive her for evigt. Holiday Inn Resort har virkelig været en oplevelse. Jeg har rejst mange steder i verden, opholdt mig på utallige hoteller, dyre som billige, men ingen af dem har været helt som dette. Jeg har følt mig meget hjemme de sidste par dage, hvilket ikke er let for mig at føle da jeg ikke er så tilpas i nye omgivelser. Personalet er sjovt, venligt og hjælpsomt – men ikke på den typiske robot måde, nej, på den måde, der føles som om de virkelig går op i at du har det godt og det skinner gennem hele resortet. Fra gartneren til receptionisten er der bare smil overalt – ikke en sur mine i syne. Alt udendørs areal er super vedligeholdt – ikke engang et blad ligger i vejen for dig og skulle det være tilfældet så bliver de fejet væk med det samme, også i blæse vejr. Deres bungalows er rummelige, rene og dekoreret i god smag, alt er super foto venligt (vigtigt!), holdt i sort og creme, så de grønne palmer og det blå hav virkelig kommer til sin ret. Arkitekturen passer smukt ind i naturen, noget som meget få hoteller formår at opnå og noget jeg tager hatten af for, særligt når man er så privilegeret at ligge lige på en strand. Du kan vælge flere værelsestyper, hvis du ønsker at bo lige på stranden, som vi gjorde kan du vælge en beachfront bungalow (det sidste foto var vores beach bungalow), eller du kan klatre højere op og vælge en bungalow med havudsigt eller hvis du kan lide jungle stemning kan du bo i en af de fantastiske garden view bungalows. Maden på resort er super, du kan få virkelig god klassisk thai mad, men også det vestlige køkken er helt okay. Jeg spiser (af princip) aldrig pizza eller burgere når jeg er i Asien, fordi jeg elsker den lokale mad (og fordi de ofte ikke kan finde ud af at lave det), men jeg prøvede det for at sammenligne og de gør det faktisk rigtig godt og jeg er kræsen med kvaliteten af min mad! De har også mad til vegetarer og endda veganere. Udover alt dette har de også en infinity-pool, et rigtig godt fitness center, et spa, tonsvis af aktiviteter og den smukkeste strand jeg nogensinde har set – der er så mange flere ting at sige om dette sted, men jeg kan ikke blive ved, så det sidste jeg vil sige er; bare gøre det – det alle pengene værd.

 english: Phi Phi has taken me by storm, at this point I am certain that I could stay here forever. Holiday Inn resort has truly been an experience, I have traveled to many places in the world, stayed at countless hotels, expensive and cheap but non of them has been quite like this. Besides from the fact that Phi Phi island is breathtaking, the resort is something else. I have felt very much at home these last few days, something that is not easy for me to feel as I am not very comfortable in new surroundings. The staff is funny, kind and helpful – but not in the typical robotic way, no, in the way that feels like they really care about you and it just shines all the way through the resort. From the gardener to the front desk service there are just smiles everywhere – not a frown in sight. The outdoor space is so well maintained – not even a leaf will be in your way, they are sweeped up immediately, even when it’s windy. The bungalows are spacious, clean and decorated with good taste, everything here is super photo friendly (important!), kept in black and cream so the green palm trees and the blue ocean can really stand out, the architecture of the place really suits the nature which I really admire, very few hotels and resorts succeed in complimenting their surroundings. You can choose several room types, if you want to stay right on the beach like we did you can choose a beachfront bungalow (the last photo was our beach bungalow), or you can climb higher and choose sea view or if you like a bit of a jungle feel you can stay at the amazing garden view bungalows. Also the food at the resort is great, you can get really good classic thai food but also western cuisine if you are more in the mood for a clubsandwich, I never eat pizza or burgers when in Asia because I just love the local food but I tried it to compare (for you of course) and they make great western food as well – and I am picky with my food! They also have choices for vegetarians and even vegans. Other than that they have an infinity pool, a great gym, a spa, tons of activities and the most beautiful beach I have ever seen – so many things to say about this place so what I will say; just do it – it’s worth every penny.

Jeg er ovenud tilfreds med resort livet, lige nu er jeg ikke så sikker på jeg nogensinde vil fra denne ø. Phi Phi er fantastisk, resortet er smukt og menneskene her er de sødeste. I går fik Sebastian og jeg en rumpefuld til Muay Thai (thai boxning) af resortets to mega seje (og hårde) personlige trænere, derefter svømmede vi os en lang tur for at køle ned og jeg afsluttede dagen med 2 timers massage, hvis hver dag bare kunne være sådan. I dag har solen skinnede smukt og jeg har taget en masse fine billeder af stedet som jeg glæder mig til at vise jer i morgen når vi er på vej mod fastlandet igen. Snøft!

english: I am so happy with our time at the resort, right now I am not sure I ever want to get of this island. Phi Phi is amazing, the resort is beautiful and the people here are just the nicest. Yesterday Sebastian and I got our asses kicked in Muay Thai class by the super skilled and awesome personal trainers at the resort, after, we swam to cool down and I ended the day with a 2 hour massage, I wish everyday could be like that. Today the sun shined bright so I have taken alot of photos of the resort that I will show you tomorrow when vi depart from Phi Phi  and return to the mainland again. Sniffles!

I dag er vi ankommet til Phi Phi hvor vi, indtil på mandag, skal bruge vores dage på det smukke Holiday Inn resort. Jeg gik total snapchat amok da jeg ankom, alt var så smukt og resortet er sindsygt instagram venligt (thank god!) – vandet er det smukkeste og solnedgangen var præcis som på film – er det ikke derfor så mange mennesker tager hertil? Vi er blevet placeret i en beach bungalow som ligger i første række ned til / på stranden, det er vild luksus! Jeg glæder mig til at udforske stedet i morgen, men en lille yoga time eller to skal der også presses ind! Stay tuned for flere updates omkring dette fantastiske sted.

english: Today we have arrived at Phi Phi island where we, until monday, will be spending our days at the beautiful Holiday Inn resort. I went total snapchat crazy when we arrived, everything is so beautiful here and the resort is so instagram friendly (thank god!) – the water is breathtaking and the sunset was excatly like in the movies – isn’t that why so many people come here? We have our own beach bungalow right on the beach, it’s very luxurious – I am very much looking forward to exploring the place tomorrow but a tiny yoga class or two wont hurt nobody! Stay tuned for more updates on this magical place.

 Det er SÅ varmt her, i har ingen ide – og mit hår har det ’super’ med det fugtige klima – afro everywhere. Lidt som da Monica (fra friends) var i Barbados og hendes hår blev gigantisk – det er mig, “it’s the humidity!” men jeg vidste godt det ville ske, bare en smule regnvejr i Danmark kan få mit hår til at slå ud som en oversize paraply. Indtil videre har vi ikke haft så meget sol men egentlig fungere det rigtig godt for billederne og de store regnskyl er sindsygt hyggelige, jeg er også ret vild med at her næsten ingen turister er lige nu – det er en anelse befriende. I morgen tager vi mod Phi Phi! Stay tuned.

english: It is SO hot here, you have no idea! And my hair is really taking in the humidity – afro everywhere. Just like when Monica (from friends) went to Barbados and her hair just got gigantic – thats me, “it’s the humidity!” but I knew this would happen, just a tiny bit of rain in Denmark makes my hair as big as an oversize umbrella. So far we haven’t had much sun but it actually works quite well (picture wise) and the giant rains are just so fascinating! Oh and I love how here is no tourists, it’s kinda liberating. Tomorrow we are headed for Phi Phi – stay tuned!
