V FESTIVAL

Framboise Fashion Bershka Festival Style V Festival 004

LET IT SHINE, LET IT..

Guys. I've solved it. The one thing that is going to take you through any weather in festivals and still keep you happy as Larry. It's not wellies but I suspect you might have already guessed it, as I'm aware of the fact that I have the most awesome readers. Yes yes, indeed. It's donuts. Buy in bulk, and if you can't eat them all straight away, cushion your outfit for an instant Kardashian update. Sorted.

My unhealthy obsession aside, I had the immense pleasure of joining my friends from Bershka at V Festival in Hylands Park in Chelmsford last weekend. Inspired by the season, I did a sporty take on festival style with AW16 vastly approaching, and loving this trend in general it seemed the perfect opportunity to sport some sport. Brilliant for those of us who run everyday... to pick up donuts. I've always been a tomboy, and to challenge that I paired one of the outfits with a slip dress to add some unexpected femininity into the outfit. Now, I love a good festival and this one was awesome despite a bit of weary weather here and there, but the tunes of SIA, Flight Facilities, Troye Sivan and Lukas Graham transported us away from any grey clouds.

PLAYING CATCH UP

Diving right back into work, as most of us are at the moment, the game of catch-up has been a tricky one for me (hence the blotty blog posting, sorry guys). Whilst I wish blog stories would naturally create themselves from beautiful moments I get to experience in my life, preferably by the beach near a mountain range, they require preparation and a few more html skills - brain turns to cheese melt - and the only mountain I can see, is the Himalayan-esque one created by clothes I've piled up in the middle of my bedroom. Obviously a result of neglect, but in my defence I've been working, eating, sleeping and making sure the house didn't catch on fire. Tough job, tellin' ya'! But all the air that's been going to my brain during the holidays has left me inspired and excited for the projects I'll be working on from now, so I'm hoping you'll enjoy them just as much!

TIPPED OFF



LATE AUGUST POINTS


Back in beautiful London town, and nothing quite screams London like Westminster, ya' know wha' oi mean? Since I've been back, I've noticed the amount of people overtaking me on the street has gone up drastically. My time out in Portugal had me dragging my feet in snail speed, more focused on the ice cream than on the road, which possibly may have impacted current velocity levels. 

We've been blessed with this amazing weather up until the very moment I'm writing this post, however, love isn't far out of reach with my comfort food numero uno, introducing Ben & Jerry's, being half the price here than when I lived back in Denmark. Of course, I could always go wrap myself in a snuggie #ad #bestpurchaseever #peanutbutter - I think I cried for 10 minutes laughing after watching the ad. Please always feel free to share funny videos in the comments, I feel like it's fuel for the soul to laugh it out.

PORTUGAL



HERE WE ARE

End of week, and uh, almost end of summer.. I always feel like this particular part of the year rushes by much faster than it was meant to, yet I always manage to completely lose all sense of time within it. Perhaps that's the reason why? Either way, the late summer (sensommeren as we call it in Danish - one word to cover this time) can be just as sweet as the beginning.

After what can only be described as the most fantastic summer escape to Algarve, Portugal (photo diary to follow), I'm feeling excited about the projects that are going to take me from now until the end of the year. It's been in the back of my mind to start some completely new projects up; you can only edit so many photos of yourself for your blog and social media until something different has to happen.

WHEN IN COPENHAGEN



COMING HOME

Ahem... It's safe to say that I've been in full on holiday mode. You may have been able to witness the schnoozing and schmoozing on SnapChat, but come August - more specifically today - I'm back in the game. I've been spending these past few weeks in Denmark and Portugal, reconnecting with old friends who know exactly how I'm wired. Being a part of a little international family of friends is truly a blessing, because whichever new place you go to, they make it feel like home.

The pictures here however, taken in Copenhagen, were my home. Five lovely years in Copenhagen, and you never quite recover from how good the standard of living is here and the general mentality of the people within it. If you haven't been, go. If you have, go again and again. Colourful houses, happy people, smørrebrød and in my opinion, the best coffees (I used to make them in a coffee shop on Kongens Nytorv. Biased? Noooo..).
