You know I love Copenhagen as much as a full Pringle can, so when the bells ring for fashion week I pack my bags and jump on the first plane. That does to some extent depend on the weather forecast, to be fair, I have known to hit the snooze button on February fashion weeks depending on how many minus degrees we're talking, which of course would also lead onto the question of how on flying earth I could wear my legs out?! Crazy lady.. But still no cats, so I blame it on the quarter of my viking genes and get on with it. Back to fashion week, Copenhagen has quickly in recent time known to become one of the sharpest shooters for street style, and in collaboration with my friends at Sorel, we've pieced together some looks inspired by two of my favourite styles from their current collection. The first outfit I'm wearing, is styled around the Explorer Carnival Boot, feels like a marshmallow on my feet, being the lightest/warmest shoe I own now, and thus my perfect winter boot partner. I hope you'll like this little photo series from Copenhagen, and I can't wait to share the runway reports with you here.

I'm not going to lie, I've been stumbling around like a un-coordinated gum ball lately. I've come across toddlers with better coordination than me these days, and thus I'm left to ask for a bit of help. Whilst the 9-inch wedges I'm wearing here, seemed like a good idea to buy at the time, they were indeed just the outcome of a spur of the moment high street shopping urge. With coats however, I take my sweet time to make sure I get the right one. The hand I've been reaching out for years in December for my Christmas shopping is also a hub for designer women's jackets - the wonderful Selfridges - had me covered for this one. Being Danish, I swear by the wonders of down jackets, so amongst the candy shop of curated design, I ended up in this  part of the field. They're an incomparable source of insulation when it comes to trapping body-heat yet allowing the body to breathe unlike rain parkas, and this Moncler Jacket, has been excelling at the job. Puffer jackets can no doubt be a drowning factor, and that comes from someone with the 5th grade experience of purely being noticed as a turquoise Michelin square, but this women's puffer jacket did everything right. Main thing for me is that I don't turn into a icicle and make it through winter, and as for the style of puffer jacket you go for, I believe it's all about finding something that works for you and expresses your individuality. Personally channeling the Bond look these days and I'm feeling it. Except the boots, they can go.

A LITTLE RAMBLE




IT BEGINS in

BY SARAH MIKAELA




Admitted. The blog has been a tad bit quiet lately - an un-haunted but indeed empty house with a solitary echo to it. The excuse is a never ending to-do list, a sleep-deprived schedule that requires attention from every state of awareness (and I am not a multi-tasker) and alas the worst one I hear my mind say: "keep up with social media". If I can stare at Instagram, with a hard drive full of back-logged content and still freeze, imagine a website. I say that, and then again, a blog makes so much more sense to me. Perhaps because I was here, before we were all called bloggers, then content creators and now to my personal favourite (please catch the irony) influencers. The word leaves a slippery taste in my mouth, and yet there is so much pressure to create, not only from a place of personal creativity and exploration, but for performance. Truthfully, I can't speak for others, but that emotion kills creativity for me. I'm backing out of it again. Divorcing that state of creativity-crush, and diving into things that previously nourished my creative process - playing music, drawing, meditating. 

What were we talking about again? That's right, Paris! As with many others, Paris is a place with endless inspiration on tap. The times I will pick up Parisian VOGUE and flick through, imagining I understand the words, admiring how they display them. Curly typography juxtaposed block letters and casual editorials displaying an air of glam that can only be found in the peaks of fashion's history and still remaining geniously contemporary. Beautiful. I can't say I always feel my best when I'm here, perhaps it's because I always travel alone here, and I end up spending my nights not dancing in the streets of Paris, but listening to CNN editing the better half of the day. The fault to this is only too little time in too beautiful a city.

Until next time.

STRONG SOULS




created for SHISEIDO

assistant GIULIA GRECO


Since the first time I put my teeth into pasta, I had a pretty solid hunch that souls were real. It didn't take much convincing or proof, and like the invisible effects on the tides, I knew it was present and I knew it was an entity to care for. Exercising a high level of self-care as a ritual is my way of maintaining that, through meditation on a spiritual, soul-nurturing level, and on the physical side exercising with a routine that works into anything but a predictable schedule, surrounding myself with good people and not least carrying out a mindful skincare routine mornings and evenings. It's one of my favourite times a day, and being a fan of Shiseido's approach to innovative skincare for a long time (they're also the makers of my favourite foundation, the Syncro Skin Glow), I was eager to collaborate and partake in their #StrongSouls campaign championing their serum Ulimune. They had me at Power Infusing, and it's a real treat for its hydrating and fortifying qualities that strengthens the skin from within making it healthier and building up your natural resilience against pollution.

A RUN FOR YOUR MONEY






A RUN FOR
MADE BY SARAH MIKAELA, ASSISTED BY GIULIA GRECO for SWEATY BETTY


Until recent years I've had a very tense relationship with the gym - all very al dente to the point where it's unchewable.The thought of stepping into a gym? Forget it. The entire thought of showing my sportily incompetence for public preview was absolutely not something I'd entertain in any way. But this year; after fumbling a text to my closest gym-bunny Anouska saying: "HOW DO YOU SWITCH THIS ON?!", I finally, unapologetically, got my legs moving on that treadmill (thanks Anouska). And now? Guys, I find this hard to not immediately compare myself to the likes of the Terminator, but let's just say I'm washing and folding my gym-wear every Tuesday and Friday after a sweat. Gym-wear majorly consists of Sweaty Betty bits, as they genuinely just tick my most important boxes of performance and comfort. Emphasising comfort as it's hands down, hand on heart (do I get three hands in metaphorical language?) the kindest support in the room if you're taking on any kind of bad-arse boot camp, treadmill triumph or spin.
