THOUGHTS ABOUT DIGITAL DETOXING

Conclusion 

This is not gonna be an “omg I’m a new person and everything is sparkly now” kind of post. I’m gonna try to be very honest with my experience as I think it’s an important subject. I’m normally quite private. Yes this is a “personal blog” but I never really talk about much more personal things than the weather. That’s not what I wanted this blog to be, you see – I wanted it to be about the products, the travels, the outfits – not about my oatmeal or weather or not me and my boyfriend were fighting. I’m not really like that in real life either, I share real stuff with very few people and therefore I wanted the blog to be my creative space more than my personal outlet. BUT with that said, this subject is personal and it is something worth talking about.

Was my digital detox a revelation? No. Obviously not – 6 months on a deserted island probably would be or a winter spend it total isolation in Scotland – sure. But these 10 days, not so much. It was a break and I needed it, more than ever really. Digital detoxing is a weird phenomenon, I always thought that it would be a super easy thing to do cause it’s just putting your phone down right? I don’t think we realize how much we have a phone in our hand until we don’t. The first 3 days I barely knew what to do with myself when I was “bored” cause normally I just pull out my phone and TADA – suddenly I am not bored anymore. But I had some good “staring into space” moments and after a while it really wasn’t so bad. I slept a lot, cried a bit and went for a lot of walks. Repairing myself I guess – it has been hard not slowing down or taking any sort of break for as long as I have. Honestly I could use a bit more time of, I mean, I love what I do – but it’s a long time since I just felt myself and didn’t rush through my day like a maniac. So what I am thinking is, I need a new way of going about these days of mine that I feel so blessed to have. Breathe more and actually allow myself some breaks, because I never do. In my mind everything can always be done better and faster. If I take any sort of break or I don’t eat in front of my computer or don’t do a phone meeting on my way to another meeting I almost punish myself for not being effective enough. It’s scary and I don’t want it to be like that anymore. It’s not that I want to be less productive but I would like to enjoy my day and not just make time go as fast as possible so I can do as much as possible. It sucks. Anyway – that’s all I had to say about that. Digital detoxing is always a good idea and I definitely recommend it – but I will say this, instead of enhancing the detoxing of my life I think I wanna work on being better towards myself everyday and not just every 3 years.

DIGITAL DETOX

DIGITAL DETOX

To all my dearest readers. This is such a weird post to write, where do I begin – how do I put this into words? It’s strange in a way doing what I do, it’s so much fun and I feel a huge privilege getting to run my own business and write, travel and photograph for a living. It’s amazing. But being an influencer is also a different type of full time job in that sense that you actually never have a day of. It’s 7 days a week, it’s all hours of the day (or so it feels) and when you travel you are never really on vacation. It’s hard to explain because it look so good doesn’t it? And I am so blessed that I always have something to do and a new project to catch, and because I find it all so exciting I forget to take time of. Time of is important to everyone, everybody needs a break every once in a while and quite honestly I haven’t been taking mine. It’s been 3 years of non stop business, travel and being “online” – so I have to decided to take a little time off. I need to take some time to rejuvenate, collect new thoughts and quite frankly, sleep alittle. So I thought what better time to do it then when I first arrive in LA. I have to find a place to live, I wanna catch the last rummer rays on the beach and then I’ll return well rested and with new fresh ideas.

Taking a digital detox break is pretty scary I have to admit. Will I loose followers during my absence? Will my readers forget about me? Will my nose fall off and the sky fall down? The truth is, nobody knows. I can’t reassure myself that you’ll all be here when I return but I hope you will, and I know I’ll return as a better (and more rested) me who is ready to deliver new and exciting things for you to be inspired by. Which is the over all goal, isn’t it? Well now I must say adieu, at least for a while and I will be back in roughly two weeks, with a fresh new mind. Until then, enjoy babes!

THE WHITE WAY

A collections of my recent white outfits

Hvid er min sort, alt det der i andres skab er sort er hvidt i mit. Jeg ejer 3 gange så mange flere hvide par jeans end sorte og min hvide skjorte samling er ved at være ude af kontrol – det hvide overtager mit skab stille og roligt. Hvid får mig til at føle mig stærk og smuk og jeg elsker den måde det lyser op på. Selvom man sagtens kan have det på om vinteren glæder jeg mig virkelig til sommer hvor det hvide virkelig kan komme til sin ret. Hvad med jer? Ejer i også meget hvidt? Eller er i mere til det sorte? Eller måske en helt anden farve? – gad vide om nogen har orange eller lilla som den dominerende farve i deres klædeskab…

english: White is my black, everything that in others closets is black, is white in mine. I have 3 times more white jeans than I do black and my collection of white shirts is getting out of hand. The white is concurring my closet at a rapid pace. White makes me feel strong and beautiful and I love the way it lights up, and even though you can easily wear it in winter I am very much looking forward to the summer so the white can really shine! What about you? Do you also own a lot of white? Or are you more into black? Or maybe a whole other color.. – I wonder if someone has orange or purple as their dominant color in their closet, who knows..

Sneak peak…

Som lovet kommer der snart en omgang beauty tutorials på min blog – endelig er billederne skudt nu skal jeg bare lige dimse, redigere og skrive en post til jer (eller to). Er det kun mig som synes at jeg lige pludselig får lidt asiatiske træk når jeg ingenting har på øjnene? Eller har i også det når i tager jeres makeup af? Jeg er sikker på det er noget som er kommet med årene, bliver ens øjne mere skæve når man bliver ældre?? Skræmmende tanke! Anyway jeg glæder mig meget til at vise jer mine beauty looks – stay tuned!

english: As promised there will soon be posted some beauty tutorials on my blog – finally, the photos have been taken and now I just have to edit and write a post for you. BTW is it only me who think that I suddenly get Asian features when I have naked eyes? Or do you feel the same when you take of your makeup? I’m sure it’s something that has come over the years, does one’s eyes become more almond shaped when you get older?? Scary thought! Anyway I am very excited to show you my beauty looks – stay tuned!

PRODUCTS: Summer Ready

IMG_5882 IMG_5889 IMG_5888 IMG_5890

Hej piger!

Jeg vil lige dele mine yndlings produkter med jer som jeg bruger til at blive sommer klar! Det er nogle produkter jeg har testet over noget tid og alle nogen jeg synes er super lækre at bruge, links til hvor de kan købes kan findes under alle produkt beskrivelser:

KNUS

Hårmaske:
Mærke: Shu Uemura (kan købes her)

Jeg forsøger at være meget god ved mit hår fordi jeg ikke har ret meget af det (desværre) så en hår kur er vigtig for mig, særligt om sommeren fordi det ofte bliver meget tørt og bleget af solen. Den her fra Shu Uemura er super blød, lækker at arbejde med og så tynger den ikke mit hår. Den er lidt for parfumeret til min smag men hey mit hår dufter godt!

Facetan og mineralpudder:
Mærke: Vita Liberata (kan købes her)

Kendt for at være en af verdens bedste selvbruner mærker og at være dem som giver Kim K en lækker glød må jeg sige jeg er fan! Vita Liberata giver super lækker farve uden at være for meget og så er det så nemt at have med at gøre. Jeg bruger faktisk normalt ikke pudder men denne er helt fantastisk fordi der er selvbruner i den samtidig, det er blevet to permanente beboere i min makeup pung.

Solcreme:
Mærke: Purely Professional (kan købes her)

Endelig en ufedtede solcreme som ikke gør mig mere hvid end jeg er i forvejen, god størrelse, lækker emballage og så beskyttelse den både mod UVA og UVB stråler.

Body Scrub:
Mærke: Vølve (kan købes her)

Økologisk, håndlavet og dødlækkert, jeg tror det er de 3 ord jeg vil bruge om Vølve. Der er ingen allergener i og bliver ikke produceret i uanede mængder – det dufter FANTASTISK og så føles det super lækkert på kroppen. De laver også shampoo og de fineste små læbepomader, hvis du ikke kender dem burde du!

Anni Lu girl

Anni Lu kan købes hos Befashionable.com her

Hej piger! Jeg er blevet så glad for Anni Lu armbånd og får så mange fine kommentarer på Instagram når jeg ligger billeder op af dem så jeg tænkte jeg ville dele de forskellige måder jeg bruger dem på. Er i også vilde med dem? Jeg tænker måske at lave en giveaway, hvad siger i til det?

KNUS

english: Hey girls, I’m so in love with the amazing Anni Lu bracelets and when I post pictures of them I always get a lot of comments so I thought I would share some of the stylings I do with them. Im thinking of maybe doing a giveaway with some of them, what do you think?

Earings / Glitter, Shirt (with glitter sleeves) / Vintage silk blouse, Nailpolish / O.P.I

Jeg elsker glimmer og glitter i afmålte mængder. Jeg elsker at bruge perler, pailletter og alverdens påsætninger så længe jeg kan opretholde en hvis balance i mit look samtidig. Denne juleaften havde jeg grå negle og min ynglings strik på fra Zara og så lige glimmerærmerne på min silke bluse til at stikke ud for at være lidt festlig. Jeg håber at i havde en dejlig aften og har haft nogle dejlige dage so far.

Throwback fra sidste sommer i LA

Nicholeshoes.com har lige featured mig på deres hjemmeside fordi jeg har deres sandaler på, på det her billede. Jeg elsker når sådan noget sker, jeg har ikke engang gjort dem opmærksomme på mig de har åbenbart bare set det og lagt mig op på deres hjemmeside. Du kan se indlægget de har skrevet her, og hvis du også er interesseret i de her sandaler (som jeg stadig elsker) kan du finde dem i forskellige farver her. Ha en dejlig dag!

english: nicholeshoes.com just featured me on their website and thats so exciting! I wore their sandals (which I still love!) last summer and apparently they are still available, you can check them out here (you can get them in different colors) and if you want to see their feature of me look here. HUGS

Zara Plateau glitter sandaler her

Hej piger! Da jeg viste jer mine plateau sandaler fra zara for en uges tid siden var jeg så træt af at de her var blevet taget af hjemmesiden fordi de minder så meget som dem jeg har fra sidste season, men nu er de der igen så hvis i skal have fingrene i dem så er de der nu! De ligger til 560 kr og er i SUPER kvalitet, glitteret på plateauet er “sat på” og ikke bare printet på hvilket gør at de ser über eksklusive ud, jeg er vild med dem! Mine er dog nude i læderet og de her er hvide, men stadig super fede, følg linket ovenfor hvis de er noget for jer.
