2_24032015__I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve got a thing for culottes. It’s the perfect pants for spring and summer, and this printed pair by Tibi is one of my favorites at the moment.

Sadly the flat I told you about yesterday was never an option as it turned out it didn’t even exist… I guess if something sounds too good to be true it almost certainly is. So we are back to scratch, and with only 4 days left in London… Now we’ve got our eyes on another flat that bigger and better but might not be available till July.

Enough with the house-hunting talk. My hair feels way too long at the moment so I’m heading to my hairdresser for a chop tomorrow morning. Can’t wait. If you are looking for an amazing hairdresser in London I can recommend Jay at Butchers Salon. She’s a star (and knows how to cut a fringe).

I har sikkert bemærket at jeg er ret glad for culottes, og nu hvor foråret er her kommer de helt til sin ret. Elsker dette par fra Tibi, der giver ekstra lange ben og har et smukt print.

I morgen skal jeg til frisøren, og jeg glæder mig! Mit hår føles alt for langt i øjeblikket. Havde ellers planer om at holde det langt for at skrue lidt op for 1970erne, men så så jeg et billede af mig fra i sommers, hvor det var en del kortere og kom til at savne det. Chop chop. 

Argh… lejligheden jeg fortalte om i går viste sig i øvrigt at være ikke-eksisterende. Totalt nedtur. Nu har vi fundet en anden lejlighed som både er større og smukkere, men måske ikke ledig før juli. Det er ikke nemt.

2_23032015Another day of packing and hunting for a place to live in Copenhagen. I can’t believe how difficult it is to find a flat that allows pets. We found this perfect little place tonight and I’m checking my inbox every 5 minutes in hope of some good news. It’s super central and even has a small garden for the dogs and Oskar to play in. Most rental flats are gone the same day they get on the market, and it certainly doesn’t make househunting easier to be sitting in London.

Sleep tight!

Vi pakker og jager lejlighed. Det er simpelthen så svært at finde noget i København, der tillader hund(e), men jeg håber vi har heldet med os nu. Vi fandt nemlig den mest perfekte lejlighed på Frederiksberg lige ved søerne, der både er indflytningsklar og med en lille have. Og som en sjældenhed tillader husdyr. Jeg krydser alt, hvad jeg har og tjekker min mail hvert 5. minut i håb om nogle gode nyheder.

Sov godt!

4_22032015I can’t believe we’ve got less than a week left in beautiful London. We still haven’t found a place to live (not that easy with two dogs) but hopefully things will get sorted out within the next couple of days. They kind of have to.

I have a busy week ahead of me with both meetings, press days and most importantly, packing the flat. Friday morning the moving company will come pick up all the furniture etc and since we still haven’t find a place to live they’ll storage it all. So just as when we moved to Los Angeles 4 years ago I’ll once again be living in a suitcase, and with a very limited amount of clothing, shoes etc. Not really looking forward to that part of the moving overseas. What I am looking forward to on the other hand is to see family and friends in Denmark again. My grand parents and even some of my close friends still haven’t met Oskar.

Jeg kan slet ikke forstå, at vi har mindre end en uge tilbage her i London, og jeg bruger i øjeblikket dagene på at suge det sidste af byen til mig. Jeg har prøvet det før. Første gang, da vi flyttede fra Kbh til LA for 4 år siden, og igen da vi flyttede til London for 2 år siden. Det er vigtigt at nyde de sidste dage i byen og få sagt pænt farvel, og især sørger jeg for at tænke over og nyde de små ting, der er blevet til hverdag. Som eksempelvis verdens bedste double chocolate chip cookie fra Daylesford, gåture i Hyde Park, shopping i Harrods. Jeg håber også vi får tid til en lang gåtur langs Themsen inden vi smutter. Og så har jeg en del møder i næste uge samtidig med at der er pressedage. Og en lejlighed der skal pakkes. Jeg får uden tvivl travlt. 

Vi har endnu ikke fundet et sted at bo i København, men forhåbentligt løser det sig inden for de næste par dage. Det bliver det jo på en måde nødt til. Jeg glæder mig virkelig meget til at komme til Danmark, og til at se familie og venner igen – en hel del har endnu ikke set Oskar. Til gengæld glæder jeg mig ikke til at bo i en kuffert igen. For så længe vi ikke har en lejlighed at flytte ind i, bliver vores møbler osv. opbevaret hos flyttefirmaet. Har dog planer om at sende et par flyttekasser med tøj og sko til Danmark.

7_16032015Alongside the return of the 1970s the utility trend is one of my favourites to tap into this spring, and this belted Bruuns Bazaar blazer pairs the two. I love how it can be worn buttoned up as here or with its lapels folded the classic way. Quite the must-have this season if you ask me.

I usually don’t mind Mondays but today I just want to crawl back into my bed and stay there. It’s only 11am… It’s gonna be such a long day.

Nonetheless I’ve got an outfit for you wearing one of the best spring coats I’ve spotted this season. The oversized fit and the coloured checks made it a must-have in my book. Same with the pleated Mads Nørgaard skirt I’m wearing. It’s definitely turning into a favourite worn with a sweatshirt and sneakers, or like today, with pointed flats and a turtleneck.

Today is not an ordinary day, its’ Air Max Day. When Nike first released the Air Max 1 on March 26, 1987, it’s safe to say they released a revolution. Although Nike had been placing air cushioning into its shoes since 1979, it wasn’t until 1987 that it made this technology large and visible enough for […]

The road trip – fictional or otherwise – has fuelled the imagination of some of the most influential figures in literature, film, art and music. Consider Tom Wolfe’s epic 1966 novel The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, which details a psychedelic, acid-enhanced journey through America on a customised school bus; or more recently, Alexander Payne’s dark comedy Nebraska (2013), […]
