My home morphs between idyllic Scandinavian urbanite into dense stacks of sartorial Alps. Clothes all bunked up, only echoing the panic of outfit confusion in which they arose - out of nowhere, I may add. To a recurring problem, you need a recurring solution. In practice this means, that when you're hunting for that in-season hot pink oversized cropped hoodie (half soy, no sugar), that you have a plan B that looks like a plan A.

Now we all have our different preferences, but my hero continues to be the white shirt. Coming in many variations and forms and so, so wonderfully versatile, I can't think of any better look to save the day.

GOT MYLK?




IN FOR A TREAT

I hope you're feeling those early summer vibes, because I'm going to take you on a trip to St. Kilda in Melbourne today! Now here's the tale.. I was arm-sleeves up in the middle of collecting my 5 favourite Melbourne cafés for you - as you all well know I'm the eager café hopper (café kangaroo if you will..), and it became apparent to me looking through my photos in attempt to stick it all into one post, that there was one café that was highly represented in terms of footage. So new plan! Instead of giving you all 5 at once (this post is right around the corner!), I'm going to share a new favourite spot that's quickly wiggled its way right into the top. Why will hopefully become apparent in this post! Get ready for some colour, flavour and a ton load of fun.


Everyone, meet Matcha Mylk Bar.

Matcha Mylk Bar

Well worth the hype, pun pro's and vegan superstars Matcha Mylk Bar scores as one of the most fun and flavourful food experiences I had in Melbourne. Not like anything you've tried before, and yes vegan, the popular spot aims to not convert you into veganism, but entertain through their mouthwatering displays and open the idea of incorporating vegan meals into your diet. I fell in love with a dragonfruit smoothie called: "When Khalesi Wears Lycra", that currently has me looking at tickets back to Australia. So good..





STAY TUNED FOR THE CAFE POST GOING UP THIS WEEK!

BACK IN TOWN




Aaand we're back in the office! Yesyes, really. Although I'm a happy Londoner by choice, boy is it good to get out sometimes. And I've learnt something important since arriving back this Tuesday: never make promises whilst jet-lagged. You probably won't keep them. Or you'll fall asleep. Most likely, you'll fall asleep. And that is exactly why I'm not showing you Australia content today, as I promised, on Friday. Instead, here's my highly concealed face (blame it all on jet-lag, whilst you can) jumping around my lovely East London. Jumping back to an un-predictable climate, which doesn't only apply to the UK anymore I'm afraid, I decided to stick to the staples. A white shirt, not the usual as this Karen Millen fit'n'flare was exactly the innovation I was after when opting for this classic. Denim, always always denim, and these Isabel Marant Etoile fit the job-description to the tee. A Zara trench-coat I bought in utter sartorial panic before a date in January - I wanted to look like Julia Robert's in the 90's wearing Richard Gere's trench and not least a pair of boots I've been living in from Next.

WHAT FLOWER IS THAT




Going through the archives of my grandparents' bookshelves and albums feels much like sitting by the window in a café watching life go by outside. However this time, your looking out a window showing you life as it evolved before you, life that was relevant to you even existing and coming to be. Australia, offering a completely different side of my family history compared to my Danish heritage, always has me lured into a bit of a dream state. Growing up so far away, this history has always felt like just a spice in my life, and once I'm here, it consumes me and I become not just a character in that history but a product of it. Sweet? Sweet indeed. I'm leaving back for London tomorrow, and I by no means feel ready for it. If my London life would please just meet me in Melbourne on Monday at 8am, that would be highly appreciated *kicks of Birkenstocks*.

CANBERRA CONTRASTS



As much as last year left my brain feeling like 30p noodles, it is a somewhat miracle that we're now sitting at the end of February. Well, most of us are standing actually, and quite unvoluntarily so, but the station I hop onto the tube at rarely offers this kind of luxury. Tube seats aside, my February brought me back to Australia after almost a couple of years of not hugging my grandparents Down Under so boy, has this been due. My days of jetlag have been spent reuniting with malted milkshakes and TimTam's whilst glazing at emails through a blurry haze. Now, if you haven't tried either of these, I'm afraid I have to break it to you, that your trip Down Under is invalid. Another one to put on your list is James Turrell's amazing Sky Space at the National Gallery of Australia placed in Canberra. I won't lie to you, Australia's capital doesn't exactly have that capital buzz, unless you take out your contact lenses and put on a VR set, but it does offer that particular gem alongside some wonderful inhabitants and great coffee shops (pop to Lonsdale Street for a great selection and some top notch charity shopping).Sticking around for another couple of weeks, and I've already decided that I'm donating everything I brought with me to fill my suitcase with TimTam's to bring back to London.

Just joking...ish
