Sneaks, braids and fur

Fur: CKN of Skandinavia. Jeans: H&M. Scarf: Message. Sneakers: Adidas
I så meget kort til denne pels i mit første indlæg om Bruxelles, men derudover har jeg faktisk ikke fortalt jer om den endnu. Jeg har altid været i tvivl om, om pels ville klæde mig, og om jeg ville føle mig tilpas i sådan en. Men det synes jeg helt sikkert, at jeg gør, og jeg er blevet helt vild glad for denne, som simpelthen går til alt. Noget helt andet er, at det eneste jeg købte i Bruxelles var disse sneakers. Jeg har kigget på sneakers i virkelig lang tid, og disse er så fine og tilfredsstiller endnu en gang min blomster addiction. Jeg har ikke købt nye sneakers i 1,5 år, men disse var helt klart ventetiden værd.

You shortly saw this fur in the first Brussels post I did, but I haven't really been telling you about it yet. Well, I must say that I always have doubted if I ever would wear a fur, because I was unsure if it would fit me and I would feel comfortable in it. However, I really do and I'm so happy about this black one, which goes to everything. Apart from that, then I only bought one thing in Brussels and that was these pair of sneaks. I've wanted to buy a new pair of sneaks since forever and these are so pretty, as I've discovered that I've some sort of flower addiction. I haven't bought a new pair of sneaks in 1,5 year but these were totally worth waiting for.

Brussels part 2

Dress: H&M. Bag: Bought in Turkey and Boots: Vagabond
Dette er resten af stemningsbillederne fra Bruxelles af, som jeg havde i sinde at vise jer. Vi var nemlig på en sight seeing tour en af dagene, hvor vi, som I kan se, var et smut forbi Grand Platz, som er en plads med virkelig smukke bygninger, som blev bygget helt tilbage i starten af 1700-tallet. Derudover gik vi også forbi den verdensberømte nøgne lille dreng, som står og tisser, jep det er Manneken Pis, jeg taler om. Vildt mærkværdigt at tænke på, at sådan en lille bronzestatue kan blive et lands vartegn. Om ikke andet så vi også det belgiske kongehus, som dog står tomt, og så vandrede vi ellers bare rundt og så byens flotte kirker, gader samt de steder hvor de billigste vafler og øl kunne købes. Outfittet derimellem er fra en af de aftener, hvor vi tog i byen. Nogle tog i byen hver dag, men det er jeg ikke helt fan af, så jeg hyggede bare med nogle af de andre på hotellet. Vi fandt nemlig en super hyggelig bar, som var mega stor, flot og propfyldt hver aften. Stedet hed Delirium og kan helt klart anbefales, hvis I en dag smutter forbi Bruxelles. 

This is the rest of the pictures from Brussels, which I wanted to show you. One of the days we went on a sight seeing tour, where we stopped by Grand Platz, which is a big square with really beautiful buildings such as the Town Hall, The Breadhouse and other guildhalls as well. Some of the buildings were build back in the 18th century, which one definitely could recognize from the architecture. Apart from that we also stopped by the very well known Manneken Pis, who is the little pissing boy, whose a part of a fountain. Super weird that such a little statue can end up being a country's landmark. Nevertheless, we stopped by the Royal House as well, even though it was empty and wandered around and saw the fine churches and which places to go finding the cheapest waffles and beer. The outfit in between the pictures is from one of the evenings where we went out. Some of my class mates went out every evening, but I'm not a huge fan of doing that so many days in a row. However, we found this quite cool bar, which was like really big, nice and crowded every evening. The bar is named Delirium and I'd definitely recommend it if you're ever going to Brussels.

Brussels

Fur: CKN of Skandinavia. Jeans: Zara. Turtleneck: Pieces. Scarf: Message. Bag: Primark. Belt: Pull and Bear. Gloves: Matas. Boots: Vagabond
Dette er et lille udpluk af de billeder, som jeg tog i Bruxelles, hvilket var en virkelig fed rejse. Det var intet mindre end fantastisk at være sammen med mine klassekammerater i fem dage, og jeg kunne snildt have taget et par dage mere med dem. Ikke desto mindre, vil jeg gerne fortælle jer lidt om turen, med udgangspunkt i disse billeder. Vi besøgte EU-Kommisionen samt Parlamentet og dertil Den Danske Repræsentation, hvilket viste sig at være lidt interessant, da institutionerne langt fra er enige i alle henseender. Derudover besøgte vi også NATO's hovedkvarter, hvilket var ret så amerikaniseret, men faktisk virkede til at være en fed arbejdsplads. Generelt gik vi rigtig meget i Bruxelles hyggelige gader, og naturligvis skulle vi da også smage en belgisk vaffel i Belgien ;-) Stay tuned, der kommer flere billeder fra turen!

This is some of the pictures from Brussels, which was such an incredible trip. It was pure pleasure to spend five days with my class mates and I could without a shadow of a doubt, spend a lot more time with them. Nevertheless, let me tell you some more about the trip on the basis of these pictures. We visited the EU-Kommission and Parliament and thereto the The Danish Representation, which turned out to be quite interesting as the institutions are far from unanimous in many ways. Beyond that we visited the headquarter of NATO, which was so Americanized but seemed as a nice working place. We wandered a lot in the cosy streets of Brussels and naturally we had to taste a Belgian waffle in Belgium ;-) More pictures are coming up!

Autumn during winter

En weekend da jeg havde hende her på besøg over en sleepover, sagde hun, at hun gerne ville have at jeg skulle tage nogle billeder af hende. And I was like, ja lad os! Se, hvad der kom ud af det. Wow. Hun var iklædt sort fra top til tå, og så lagde jeg en fin, naturlig makeup på hende, således at hendes smukke ansigtstræk blev fremhævet. Derudover så var omgivelserne heller ikke så slemme endda, som I kan se. Det er en skøn udsigt, man har fra denne lille bro, vi stod på, og de grønne, brune, beige og grå farver var helt sikkert med til at gøre stemningen en smule efterårsagtig, selvom at det jo er vinter. Hvad synes I om billederne? 

One weekend this girl and I had a sleepover and the day after she was like, well, I really want you to take some pictures of me, and then I was like, okay then. And see what came out of that. Wow. She wore all black and then I put some pretty, natural makeup on her just to highlight her beautiful traits. The surroundings weren't that bad either as you see. It really is quite nice a view you've from this little bridge we were standing on and the pictures turned out to be a bit autumn-ish with the brown, green, beige and grey colors, even though it's winter. What do you think of them?

DIY-projects and Brussels

All bracelets by me
I dag rejser jeg til Bruxelles med min klasse, og det ser jeg gevaldigt meget frem til. Vi skal bl.a. ind og se EU-parlamentet, vi skal til Waterloo og ind til NATO's hovedkvarter. Det bliver enormt spændende, og endnu mere lækkert er det, at jeg skal være i selvskab med min dejlige klasse i fire dage. Noget helt andet er, at jeg lige ville vise jer nogle af de DIY-projekter, som jeg lavede, da der var juleferie. Der havde jeg omsider tid til at sidde og lave det, som jeg elsker at lave og dertil udfordre mine kreative evner. Jeg har allerede taget disse armbånd i brug og er vildt glad for dem.

Today I'm off to Brussels with my class mates and I'm so excited. We're e.g. going to the EU-parlament, Waterloo and the head quarter of NATO. I'm sure that it will be very interesting and what is really nice is that I'm going to visit these places in the company of my wonderful class mates. Apart from that then I wanted to show you the DIY-projekts I had going on during the Christmas holidays, where I finally had the time to do what I love the most. I've already put these bracelets in service.

Partisan

Top: Saint Tropez. Skirt: H&M. Boots: Vagabond. Bracelet: Georg Jensen. Necklace: Can't remember
Da den danske designer Cecilie Copenhagen kreerede partisanersættet bestående af shortsene og blusen, men enten udskæring eller ingen, var jeg lidt i tvivl, om jeg kunne lide det eller ej. Normalt forbinder jeg partisanermønstret med partisanertørklæderne, som på et tidspunkt var meget in, og jeg kunne ikke lige se det fede i at lave det om til et sæt tøj. Efter at have set det utallige gange, må jeg  dog indrømme, at jeg synes, at det er cool nok. Jeg har selv investeret i en af slagsen - dog ikke den dyre fra Cecilie Copenhagen, men derimod denne fra Saint Tropez. Tro det eller ej, så har jeg også hevet mine gamle partisanertørklæder frem ;-)

When the Danish designer Cecilie Copenhagen created the certain partisan set composed of the blouse and shorts, both with a low-cut and one with non, I was doubting whether I liked it or not. Normally I connect the partisan pattern with the old keffiyehs, which at a certain point were very in and I gotta admit that I couldn't see the great part of making it into a set of clothes. However after I've seen it countless times I've faced that it actually is pretty cool. I've bought this top in that pattern, yet not the expensive one from Cecilie Copenhagen, but instead this one from Saint Tropez. Believe it or not I've as a matter of fact also brought back my old keffiyehs again ;-)
