What a night! After 24 hours in Stockholm I rushed to Copenhagen to receive the award as International Blogger of the Year at Modeblogprisen (the Danish blog awards) 2014 hosted by Miinto. It was such a happy and overwhelming moment to go on the stage and receive my award. I’m honoured, proud and thankful. And I think it’s fair to say that part of it belongs to you. Thank you for all your support. You’re the best!
And not to forget… The one fashion lady I admire the most in Denmark, Eva Kruse, presented the award to me, which of course completed the experience. Her kind words almost made me shed tears.

I’m back in London and fully recharged after having spend the weekend on a yoga-retreat in the northern of Sweden with Filippa K. It was absolutely amazing and I’ve got a bunch of pictures to show you, but first a little about how to style the oversized blazer. My friends over at Refinery29 and Motorola challenged me to style the wardrobe staple in 3 different ways – and this is one of the outfits that happened. For the remaining two looks (and the full feature and some very sweet words from R29) – click here – and then tell me which is your favourite?
Thanks to My-wardrobe I had the pleasure of spending two days with these lovely ladies here in London last month. We met for dinner and drinks at St. Martins Lane hotel with the My-wardrobe team, editors from Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Grazia and The Telegraph and London-based designers Ostwald Helgason, Lucas Nascimento, Mother of Pearl and Palmer//Harding.
The next morning (after too many drinks and too little sleep) the five of us went to My-wardrobe’s HQ for the styling challenge. With so many amazing British designers to choose between the most challenging part was actually to choose only one outfit… So I went for three.

Back in London, back on the blog. I blame my absence on Copenhagen Fashion Week, a beautiful wedding and above all Louis Vuitton, who turned last week into an unforgettable week.
Louis Vuitton recently launched the iconic Neverfull bag in a rainbow of colourful epi leather – and during Copenhagen Fashion Week I got to play around with them on some of my favourite spots in Copenhagen. Lemon, cyan, orange, indigo, raspberry, fig and black – there’s a colour for every girl and every occasion. And if you prefer the classic monogram fear not – you can always add some personality by getting your favourite colours and initials printed on it.
I went for 4 very different looks to show the diversity of Neverfull. I dressed ladylike for the orange, classic for the lemon, rockchic for the raspberry and graphic for the monogram. As you can see it’s the kind of bag that looks amazing with whatever your style is and that’s why I love Neverfull so much. When investing in a tote bag, which most likely will turn into your everyday bag, it has to have the diversity of Neverfull.
And now the big question. Which colour will you go for?

Last month I teamed up with Jimmy Choo and streetstyle photographer Michelle Bobb-Paris to shoot some pictures for Jimmy Choo Stylemakers. I picked some of my favourite Jimmy Choo shoes and bags and styled the pieces with my own wardrobe – a totally dream scenario. And I made my debut (and fell in love with) thigh-high boots, not to mention the laced heels, which somehow landed on my doorstep a few days later making me the happiest girl on earth.
Now tell me, which is your favourite outfit?
