ALL ABOUT THE BASE


Some stunt London is pulling at the moment. London is currently in that weird in between stage, something like what you had with that hot 'n' cold crush around 3 months ago, who over-did it on the V-necks and the selfies on Instagram. Ask it to commit to either hot or cold, it won't. In these temperamental situations, I've always been advised to style around the classics, which is in my opinion is the best way of flirting with the new season. Fluent in Italian handcraft as well as British design, I've been so excited to style around two classic timeless styles by Russell & Bromley. First up the classic court shoe in navy with a thick heel and pointed toe (ouh oui!) to go with a blazer worn over a mini-skirt or as the perfect feminine touch to a co-ord. Secondly the never-go-wrong patented black loafer. Thank goodness this style wandered its way over to women's footwear, so we cold wear it right with wrapped gingham skirts paired with white shirts not to mention boyfriend jeans (stay tuned).

FEELING GREEN



I have zero idea as to why I've been sitting on this post for so long. I am not a multi-tasker as it happens, and quite easily distracted, if say, a squirrel passes my window. Most likely an idea for another post came up whilst piecing this together, and although this whole thing is bright blinking GREEN (my favourite colour, FIY), it somehow traveled its way from the top of my mind to the back. So if you're still with me, we need to rewind back to beautiful Melbourne, where I, ohhhh yesss, found a brilliant second hand green silk suit. Perhaps the exacts specifications of what my dreams are made of, alongside cream and butter.

After the whole blog-scare of my blog evaporating before my eyes last weekend, I'm feeling really excited to revisit some of the old content I'd only drafted and finally share it with you guys. I hope you're having a great weekend, and there'll be another post following this one shortly!

J FOR JINX

Alright, let's just mention the elephant in the room and comment on the irony of the opening line of my previous post.. "Blog post roll", she said. "Let's do a glitch in her domain and wipe out her website" the World Wide Web responded teasingly. And teased I was, manifesting itself as a pounding headache in the centre of my head and having me circle around a new mantra: "I'm not saving lives. I'm not saving lives". If you have no idea what I'm talking about (which I hope for the following reason), my blog was ZzzZZzZzZzz for the first time in its 7 old years from the time-space from Friday till last night, where it after hours and hours and hourzzz spent on the phone during what in idealistic theory could have been a somewhat relaxing extended bank holiday weekend finally came back live. So yes yes. I jinxed it. And jinx wasn't exactly a phrase I knew from Denmark, which is perhaps why I've been throwing jinxes around me like confetti. That's it. I'm stopping. Or, I'm sthtoppin'. Because fwom now on, I'm holdin' ma' tong.

THE ITALIAN DIARY


Ahoy all! Are we maybe on a blog-posting-roll? Maybe? I blame social media for the constant distraction, but true to my soullll there is nothing more rewarding than creating a blogpost and that sweet "publish" button. When it's a post that depicts a beautiful place like Positano, there is nothing better to me than revisiting those newly made memories of crushing waves, ladies turning the lobby into a dance off and let's not forget the breakfast view, all experiences beautifully scented by Tom Ford. You may have seen these first images on Instagram, but I've been so excited to share this full Positano photo diary with you, so I hope you'll scroll down!

BREAKFAST AT BROWNS


I am as hopeless when it comes to Spring cleaning as a chimpansee would be in politics. In today's society, we cherish self-awareness, so I have located and acknowledged this challenge in me and I have after hours at the drawing board developed a very effective approach to this problem. If you can't fix your space, make an exit route through the piles of clothes, papers and shoes and swap it over for a beautiful, preferably five-star, hotel. If the closet just so happens to be full of Matthew Williamson gowns and Jimmy Choo shoes, make a pledge and a plan to stay until Autumn at least, when the "organized mess" now counts as "hygge". This is true, I'm Danish, and a certain type of mess can be used as building blocks to create an authentic Scandinavian cave. True story. Now, to narrow ourselves a bit further in on the truth, the lovely ladies of Matthew Williamson (hello Rosanna & Anisa!) invited us for a morning of #GownGang fun at beautiful Brown's Hotel in Mayfair in London.

BROWN'S HOTEL

















N ow, the British have a certain way of doing things, and this morning I underwent an impressive transformation from the furry, fuzzy self I am into the mould of the brilliant British. All thanks to the magical hands of John Corcoran from Charlotte Tilbury sorting out my sleep-deprived face and Duck & Dry for one beautiufl blow-dry (boy, do they know how to manage a hairdryer!). And although this isn't a typical 'day in the life of', they certainly set the tone for what else is to come.
