Ah yes, The Getty, a place I have always wanted to see but never really made time to see. You know those places? I have a whole book of them. In the whole world actually but for LA, the list is long. I still have to go hike in the Malibu mountains, drive down Mulholland drive, do some sort of horse back riding and so much MUCH more. Not to mention all the restaurants I have not yet eaten at. I feel like I discover new ones everyday. It’s almost stressful (tough I know).
You can’t photograph inside The Getty because, well, it’s filled with Picasso, Rembrandt and more but the outside is just as breathtaking. Sitting on a hill just of Sunset Blvd, The Getty shines over looking Los Angeles in all it’s glory. White tile, majestic shapes and pillars everywhere. It is an architectural masterpiece and a true pleasure to wander around there for hours. They also have The Getty gardens below on the hill and also here does perfection shine through. I highly recommend visiting this landmark, if not for the art, for the photo possibilities and amazing views.

On the road again! I can’t believe I have already been here for 3 months, it’s insane how time flies. Why is it no one tells you that as a child? If I could I would tell younger me to appreciate how far away Christmas seemed all the time, and how loooong away my birthday always was in my mind. Cause now, a year is over as soon as I blink my eyes. It’s insane. It’s almost Christmas again and I will be in Copenhagen once again. This time staying with my bestie B. I can’t wait to see her again, she is one of those people I feel best seeing at least every two days. That’s a bit hard when I am here and she is there. But someday, we’ll be neighbors, our kids will play together and our husbands will be the best of friends. We’ve already agreed on that.
These photos were taken at one of my favorite places in LA, the Disney Concert Hall. An architectural wonder if you ask me and definitely worth the ride to downtown. My dad took me there when we visited LA together and even though I had at that point been to LA many times, I never saw it and now every time I drive by it, it makes me miss him. He always has the best eye for beauty and he has thought me to see it in just about anything.
It will be so nice to spend almost a total of 5 weeks in Denmark and then return to LA again in January. I will once again be flying with my favorite pink airline WOW air. I leave today and can’t wait to be in the air once again, they always spoil me rotten with big seats and lots of food. It’s so nice. If you need to visit LA in the new year, be sure to check out WOW air’s amazing prices here.
Thank you for tuning in friends, I’ll be back once I’m home in Denmark again.

I am back with yet another tip from the city of angels. Maybe someday this blog will just turn into an LA blog – we never know. That’s a joke btw. BUT I wanted to share a tip for a restaurant with you. People who are familiar with LA and especially West Hollywood will probably know it. It’s called Gracias Madre and is a plant based Mexican restaurant that specializes in meat alternatives and brilliant cocktails. It’s the perfect place for a relaxed dinner, you can sit both outside in the courtyard but also inside in the beautifully decorated restaurant. If you appreciate a sense of style, this is definitely the place for you. I wasn’t super impressed with the presentation of the food itself but it was delicious and a good marble table always helps. The crowd was everything from super fancy hollywood’ers to big family enjoying a good meal. It’s reasonably priced and a really cosy place to hang out. Remember to make a reservation – it’s pretty crowded.

My god! How beautiful are these pieces of luggage?! Oh the luxury line, Chartelet, from Delsey is just so yummy! And now they’ve made a new and improved line called the Chartelet Air, a lighter version of the otherwise pretty heavy suitcase series. Leather details, 10 year warranty, hard case exterior and a super power zipper that makes other zippers look like sissy’s. These photos were shot this weekend in my home town of Silkeborg in Jutland. My dear mommy is pretty handy with a camera and helped me take these photos on an early morning. One of my favorite places in Silkeborg is our old iron bridge that goes over the water, a perfect location to shoot these amazing pieces of luggage that are also almost “iron” colored.
This time around, I will be flying off to Los Angeles again to spend the fall there just like I did last year. It’s becoming almost a tradition and something I love to do. Taking me there is of course WOW air and I can’t wait to once again be on one of those big pink airplanes headed towards my favorite pink LA sky. I fly from Copenhagen airport to Iceland tomorrow – and although I normally always prioritize to fly directly I absolutely LOVE the stop in Iceland. Have you ever been to Iceland? IF not, go for the candy (among other things ofc) – BUT the airport is full of it! I always use my 2 hour layover to stock up on my two favorite kinds of Icelandic candy – Pristur and Djúpur! I can’t really explain what it is, but you must try it! They sell them in huge bags and I always look like I freak walking on to the next plane with my arms full of candy but I can’t help it? It’s so amazing! Make sure to pay close attention to my IG stories tomorrow when I fly with WOW air! Can’t wait to be on my way to American once again. 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?

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! 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!
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!
