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.

IL VIAGGIO




To me, there is nothing more wonderful than the seaside. Its presence, showed through both drama or tranquility entirely at its own leisure, always has me forgetting about Facebook, Instagram or whether my phone is sufficiently charged. My recent trip to Positano with Tom Ford provided exactly these indulgent moments, and although when these photos were taken, I'd had 5 hours of sleep across two days due to get on top of work before going away, being there allowed me to charge myself in a way that's simply not possible in the city. I have lost count of how many times I've visited Italy, most of these being summer holidays in the 90s in the back of a Toyota Camry eating stringed gum playing Nintendo, but nevertheless, the novelty never wears off. If you've never been, make sure you indulge in it all. Seek the classics, as they master them to perfection.

PIT STOP, PARIS



AT THE PENINSULA

Happy Saturday, le blog! Back from beautiful Paris and Positano, and I'm cooking up a storm of a few posts from the latest travels. I always have to pinch myself when I wake up in a new place, not just because my 4th floor shower at home has the pressure of a glass captured ketchup bottle and any other shower is better, but it's the flavour that arrives when you're met with another culture, another set of ideas and a different approach to what it means to be alive in today's world. London is an incredible hub for exactly this, and I've stuck around for this reason. With a fear of sounding tacky, I'm afraid this is just the truth as I see it. Something magical really happens when you bring all together, and with an open mind engage with different realities. If traveling could ever be described as a hobby, I would take it. Take a tree and plant it in different soil and just see what new colours will appear in the flowers.

(now I definitely sound tacky, but it's Saturday and it's time to indulge)

PARIS IN SPRING




BONJOUR!


Oh Paris, oh Paree! There are no words or all words for this city, that simply embodies every meaning of romance possible. Every corner, every person, every croissant has it, and I'm not just saying that for the sake of this post. It truly has something special, and I'm reminded every time, that it's not my mind that's rose-tinted, it's Paris. And the ultimate mic-drop from this city happens in Spring, as much as I imagine Japan in the cherry-blossom season, Paris manages to push all buttons in its charm and beauty. In the distance you see the Eiffel Tower and the sound of Jacque Brel accompanied by the accordion. Paris is a love-story in itself, so when Givenchy Beauty invited me to join them for an exciting launch (I've been showing it off in the Instagram Story @srhmikaela), I was on the EuroStar as fast as you can say 'merci'! An incredible quick trip over with some lovely girls, much too delicious food and plenty of oohs and aahs.
