MONTPELLIER, FRANCE

For omkring to uger siden var jeg i Montpellier, i Frankrig var jeg deltog i Senior Europamesterskaberne i karate. Lige siden at jeg kom tilbage fra min store rejse af, har jeg forberedt mig på dette store mesterskab med træning, en masse taktikker, andre stævner osv. Men for at være ærlig, så gik det ikke særlig godt, og jeg har været ret skuffet over mig selv, da jeg ikke fulgte den plan, som min coach og jeg havde tilrettelagt. Men sådan er gamet desværre til tider, og der er ikke andet for, end at hoppe op på hesten igen og blive ved. Nogle gange så taber man, og andre gange så vinder man. Udover skuffelsen i sig selv, var det dog en rigtig god tur med træning, dejligt selskab, sol, smukke omgivelser og bunkevis af evaluering, som skal bruges til den kommende sæson, som starter til efteråret. 

Two weeks ago I went to Montpellier, in France for the Senior European Championships in karate. Ever since I arrived back home from my big journey I've prepared myself for this big tournament with training, tactics, other tournaments etc. To be honest it didn't went as expected and I was a bit disappointed in myself for not following the plan my coach and I had settled. However, in this game you just have to keep your head high and get back in the game. Sometimes you win and sometimes you loose. Despite from the disappointment it was an incredible trip with training, good company, sun, beautiful surroundings and a lot of evaluation, which is going to be used for the up coming season starting to fall.

FLORAL PEPLUM

Blouse: In Wear. Jeans: Levi's. Ear rings: eBay. Bracelet: Made by me
Min kære lillesøster fyldte 18 år i fredags og af den grund, skulle hun naturligvis forkæles lidt, så vi lavede stor morgenmad, gav hende nogle gaver og tog ud og spiste om aftenen. Vi var på en argentinsk restaurant, som hedder Asador, som har de lækreste kødretter. Jeg endte min hovedret med en espresso martini og halløjsa, hvor smagte den godt! Jeg tror vist nok lige, at jeg har fundet min nye favorit drink. Alt i alt var det en super hyggelig aften, som vi sluttede af med en gåtur omkring Christianshavn. Derudover fejrede vi hende igen dagen efter, altså i går med en kæmpe fest, som hun holdte sammen med sin veninde. Der havde jeg et outfit på, som jeg også snart vil poste.

My sister turned 18 this friday and naturally she got a bit spoiled with a big breakfast in the morning, presents and then dinner in the evening. We went to an Argentinian restaurant called Asador, whose got the most delicious meat courses. I ended my dinner with an espresso martini, which I've never tasted before but whoah, it was so good - I think I've found my new favorite drink. All in all it was a very cosy evening that ended with a long walk around the city. For the record we celebrated her birthday once again yesterday with a big party together with one of her girlfriends and I'll soon be posting the outfit I wore at that occasion too.

GREEN BLUE GREY

Trousers: Saint Tropez. Shirt: Vero Moda. Sweater: H&M. Sun glasses: H&M. Necklace: Maanesten
Da min veninde og jeg tog forbi stranden ved Vesterhavet, var det egentligt meningen, at det kun var mig, som skulle tage nogle billeder af hende. Men jeg kunne simpelthen ikke udstå den flotte strand, som jeg synes, var rimelig god background material. Så jeg fik også lige taget mig et par outfit billeder, af et lidt afslappet outfit. Opmærksomhedskrævende? Det tror jeg vist nok. 

At first, as my girlfriend and went by the beach to The North Sea it was the plan that she'd be the only we took some pictures of. Well, that escalated quickly because I couldn't resist the beautiful beach, which I think was extremely nice background material. So, I had her take a couple of pictures of me as well, even though it was a quite comfy outfit. Attention whore? Yeah. Much.

THE NORTH SEA

Så var jeg lige en tur forbi Esbjerg eller helt specifikt, Hjerting for at besøge min noget så savnede veninde. Hun er flyttet derover sidste år efter sommerferien for at tage 3.g der, men kommer heldigvis tilbage til København igen efter sommeren. Vi havde ikke set hinanden i 4,5 måneder, eftersom at jeg har været ude og rejse, og at vi begge har haft travlt, siden jeg er kommet hjem. Vi fandt heldigvis et lille hul i kalenderen i denne weekend! I og med at Esbjerg ligger lige ud til Vesterhavet, greb vi os den mulighed at tage nogle billeder ved vandet. Jeg synes, at hun skulle se fin og naturlig ud, så vi iførte hende noget hvidt kluns og et par lyserøde læber, der brød det neutrale. Det blæste helt vildt, så derfor blev mange af billederne desværre ikke helt optimale, da hår i munden ikke lige altid udspiller sig så skide godt, når man prøver at tage nogle gode billeder, haha. Men jeg synes dog, at disse billeder blev ret lækre og stemningsfyldte! 

I did just crash Esbjerg and specifically, Hjerting to visit my dearest girlfriend that I've missed so much. She moved over there last year right after the summer to finish her last year of school but she will luckily be home again after the summer. We haven't seen each other for 4,5 months as I've been out traveling and since we both have been busy since I came back home again. Fortunately, we found this weekend, which we both had free! Esbjerg is just by the The North Sea so we grabbed the opportunity to snap some pictures by the ocean. I dressed her in all white in order to make the scenery look natural and then I added some pink lips on her so that everything wasn't completely neutral. It was windy as f.... so unfortunately many of the pictures didn't turn out as expected - as you possibly can imagine that hair in ones mouth doesn't look quite pretty or nice, haha. However, I think that these pictures became really nice with a lot of good atmosphere.

THE INCA TRAIL

Den gruppe som min veninde og jeg var en del af, vidste ikke lige helt, hvad vi skulle forvente af the inca trail, da folk havde fortalt os, at det var en ekstrem hård tur, hvor man højst sandsynligt ville lide af højdesyge. Vi formåede dog at holde vores hoveder høje og være optimistiske. Det foregik over en 4 dages trek på 45 km. i alt, hvor at vi på sidstedagen skulle nå til famøse machu picchu, efter at have nået det højeste punkt på 4215 m. over havoverfladen. Yeah wow. Og hold da på, det var simpelthen så hårdt at skulle nå op til det højeste punkt, da trapperne vi gik op ad blev stejlere og stejlere, og luften blev tyndere og tyndere, des højere vi kom. Men, vi kom da alle op alligevel. Under the inca trail gik vi igennem det smukkeste landskab, som I kan se - igennem gamle inkaruiner, the cloud forest og så meget mere. Selvom turen var en kamp, så gjorde vi det satme, og det er en af de mest fantastiske ting, jeg nogensinde har oplevet. Det lyder åndssvagt, men man følte sig virkelig i ét med naturen, og det tog virkelig pusten fra en (bogstavelig talt) med tanken om, at inkafolket engang byggede denne vej samt ruinerne, på det tidspunkt som de nu gjorde. 

The group me and my friend were a part of didn't know what to expect from the inca trail as people said that it was extremely hard and that you possibly would suffer from altitude sickness. But we all kept our heads high and stayed optimistic. It was a 4 days trek to actually get to the famous machu picchu and that involved 45 km. in total where the highest point we reached was 4215 m. above sea level. Yeah wow. And man, I can tell you that it was god damn exhausting reaching the highest point as the stairs got more and more up hill from step to step. Moreover, the air got thinner and it was so hard breathing. However, we all reached the point. During the trail we hiked through the most beautiful landscape as you can see, through ancient inca ruins, the cloud forest and so much more. Even though it was a struggle finishing the trail, we did it and it's one of the most incredible things I've ever done in my entire life. It sounds ridiculous but you certainly felt in one with nature and it took your breath away (literally) thinking of how the ancient inca people build this road and the ruins of course at that matter of time.

WHITE PRETTY THING

Trenchcoat: Soaked. Jeans: Levi's. Scarf: A gift. Bag: Monki. Sneakers: Nike. Blouse: Sisters Point
Jeg var på et tidspunkt ude på Fisketorvet med min søster i anledningen af, at hun snart holder sin 18 års fødselsdag og manglede noget at have på der til. Vi fandt en noget så fin, blomstrende og kort buksedragt til hende, og som jeg slet ikke er i tvivl om, at hun vil se rigtig smuk ud i. Jeg fandt denne bluse, som jeg synes er så fin, feminin og har et lille touch a boheme over sig. Derudover fik jeg også købt en sort silkebuksedragt med dyb ryg og blonder. Den må jeg vise jer på et tidspunkt! 

A week ago I went to a mall with my sister because of the fact that she needed something to wear at her 18th birthday party. We found such a cute, floral and short jumpsuit for her and I'm without a shadow of a doubt sure of that she will look absolutely beautiful in it. Also, I found a little something namely this pretty and feminin blouse, which I think has a touch of boheme. Furthermore, I bought a black silk jumpsuit with a deep back and laces. I must show you that one another time!

NIKI DE SAINT PHALLE, ARKEN

Da jeg var på Arken for at se Gerda Wegeners udstilling, var der derudover også en udstilling med Niki de Saint Phalle. Hun er en kvinde, som blev født i Paris af en amerikansk mor og fransk, adelig far, men som voksede op i USA. Hun blev som 18-årig gift og fik to børn, men blev hurtigt træt af rollen som husmor og gjorde op med dette igennem et kunstnerisk oprør. Derudover fik hun også senere hen at vide af sin egen far, at han havde misbrugt hende, da hun var lille, hvilket hun har fortrængt. Hun havde en masse vrede i sig og havde derudover en trang til at gøre op den verden, som hun synes var a man's world. Jeg synes, at det er ret tydeligt, at hendes temperament fremtræder i hendes værker, og jeg er faktisk ret vild med den måde, hun udtrykker sine følelser på. Hun har i mange af sine værker skudt på dem med en riffel, og det gør naturligvis, at de får et helt bestemt udtryk. Jeg er vild med hende Niki. 

As I went to Arken to view Gerda Wegeners exhibition I found out that there was another exhibition as well, namely one with Niki de Saint Phalle. She's a woman, who was born in Paris by an American  mother and a French, noble father but as a matter of fact she actually grew up in USA. She was married at the age of 18 and got to children but she got tired of being a house wife and she broke up with that through an artistic rebellion. Additionally, she was later on told by her own father that he sexually abused her when she was a kid, which she has superseded. Because of that and so many other things, Niki was filled with anger and she had a certain urge to break with the world that she considered as a man'd world. I think that it's pretty clear to see her temper throughout her work, but I actually quite like the way she expresses her feelings. She has actually been shooting at many of her pieces with a rifle, which naturally gives her pieces a certain expression. I'm crazy about Niki.
