A STONE'S THROW TO LUXURY




KEEPSAKE KIMONO

Having lived in "another country" (insert: England) for over two years now, the topic of home has frequently been a topic on my mind. Let's be honest here, home is the place where the risk of finding something once edible now undefinable always hangs over your head. But to draw up a more rough sketch in trying to define "home", to me it's better experienced accompanied by "holiday". I recently had the most ultimate experience of what these two could do together. Thanks to Hotel Café Royal, Regent Street became my home for some days, and although only a stone throw from where my daily shenanigans usually take place, it left me with a complete new insight of the adventures that are to be had in the city of London.


This will continue as a little feature series, as unleashing the complete experience to you at once would leave you daunted. So for this first tribute, Hotel Café Royal will have to be on top of the list. The New York Times delivered each morning, the best fruit salad and an iced coffee to go when I was running out the door insisting that I wouldn't have the time to sit down (they insisted I would and they were so right) and the most fabulous spa Akasha for a relaxing pool-dip followed by relaxing treatments, left me the happiest gal in London.

You can't really do London without doing afternoon tea, and Amy (FF superstar) and I had our fair share of clotted cream and Earl Grey's. One not to miss is the impeccable Sketch London, with interior that will blow your mind. Whatever you imagined, it's better. A million times even. Let's just say that the loos have bird-singing and a roof that makes you feel like you're in a 90's Nintendo console-game. Prepare to be amazed, and whatever you do, don't skip this experience.

HERITAGE IN PRINT



LOOK 1: OASIS SLIP TOP / SKIRT / SANDALS

I struggled with history in school. Mostly because I have the memory of a goldfish, really not because of a lack of interest. London however, has constantly sparked a curiosity in me, that there's an importance in knowing the history, and one of the sweetest spots for this is without hesitation the Victoria & Albert Museum.

Now, I don't know what it would feel like having been around since the mid 18th century housing millions of the most beautiful things in the world, but I'll take a wild guess that it's pretty amazing. Therefor I'm quite excited to share the newly launched Oasis x V&A collection, where I've been so lucky to get to style two looks beforehand to share with you. The black floral skirt just had me at hello, and I'm loving the fact that these prints were taken from 11 different hand painted botanical prints from the 18th century, making such an beautiful part of British history wearable.



HOPE YOU ENJOY THE PIECES AND WISH YOU A LOVELY START TO YOUR WEEK

FRIDAY MINDS THINK ALIKE


KEEPSAKE ROMPER (used as top - similar here) / VINTAGE BLAZER / MADS LAUGE VINTAGE SHORTS / MADS NØRGAARD SCARF / CARAVELLE WATCH / MONICA VINADER "S" NECKLACE

Being back home in London has proposed some unexpected challenges. You see, for once I actually didn't leave my place looking like the apartment of the girl Ross dates in season 4 (is it still legit to drop friends quotes?). It was nice and neat and anything embarrassing was tucked away. So.. Guess who couldn't find any of her underwear coming back home? My travel wardrobe and the sport's bra I brought to Denmark, wasn't exactly much for me to work with now being back on track running across London for meetings and events.

Who is so silly to hide their underwear when they go traveling? Well, that would be me. Therefor, this first week back in London has wardrobe wise been rather limiting. Rule of thumb, don't wear knit and anything tight. So far so good, but all my slip tops have been on duty these days, and now this romper too, just worn with vintage shorts. To my dear underwear, if you're out there reading this now, please come home.

HAVE A GREAT START TO YOUR WEEKEND

A FEW MINUTES


MADS NØRGAARD BANDANA (USED AS TOP) / ZARA CULOTTES / ANDOTHERSTORIES FLATS / ZARA SHIRT / DANIEL WELLINGTON WATCH

It's always a pleasure being back in Copenhagen, with streets that offer beauty around every corner, amazing coffeeshops, a fantastic awareness of environment with everyone traveling on bikes and let's not forget, the home of some amazing people. Having lived there myself for five years, I'm fortunate enough to have some of them count as part of my close friend group, and needless to say, I always try and catch as many as possible. However long time I'm there for, it somehow only seems like a few minutes, and never enough to squeeze in all the people I'd planned to see, and although I should be used to it now, it keeps bugging me every time I'm in the plane seat slurping a ceremonial frappé (started this tradition every time I'm leaving Copenhagen airport - BEST frappés!).

Either way, I think a lot of us experience this when we leave to live in another country, away from people who have taken up such a big part of our daily lives, to all of a sudden be reduced to an occasional Skype call and a biannual meet-up. The affection is untouchable however, and that I believe should be the most important thing and goes beyond the borders that seperate.


MUCH LOVE, HOPE YOU'RE ENJOYING YOUR FRIDAY
