These pictures were taken on my birthday this Friday. I had such an amazing day with the other girls at my student accommodation. The weather was absolutely amazing (I must have behaved very well the last year…) so we decided to go for a walk in Shoreditch followed by a lovely lunch at Strut & Cluck. It was a very aesthetically pleasing café with wooden tables, shotters in front of the windows, fresh flowers and plants everywhere. The food was eastern mediterranean inspired and bloody amazing (can’t recommend the roasted chickpeas enough!). The day ended with burgers for dinner and drinks at the local pub. Thank you to everyone who made my day a little extra special!

I know we get older all the time but every year my birthday still takes me by surprise. This year is no exception and the fact that I’m in London only makes it easier to forget it. But today is the day and I’m turning 21. It feels good to get older (I feel like most people feel like that when they’re in their early 20s) and I feel like I have matured a lot over the past year. I know age is more a state of mind but it can still be nice to say that I’m 21!
The pictures are from the other day when I was walking around Mayfair and Soho with Emilie. And once again I was wearing my beloved blazer from Sandro (which is actually on sale right now). I hope you’re not already sick of seeing it because I promise you it won’t be the last time!

The other day when I went into Central London I decided to browse a few of the high street stores and I completely fell in love with this red shirt from Mango. It has some really nice contrast seams and the bow is what makes all the difference to me. Usually I wear my shirts tucked into the jeans but because of the oversized fit of this one I prefer it hanging loose instead.

It feels so incredibly good to be back in London. The drive and vibe here constantly get me excited about things and this city just keeps inspiring me. I couldn’t dream of a better place to be right now (though it is a bit cold from time to time). These past few days I’ve used to get back into things here, reunite with some friends and get to know others. I was in Hackney the other day having lunch with Hannah (one of the sweet girls I met last semester) at the newly opened café Sans Pere in Broadway Market. Such a cute little spot with amazing decor and great food at reasonable prices. It was lovely to just sit and chat and we had a lovely time.
I can’t deny that I’m a bit impatient for my studies to begin on Monday. This semester I am going to focus more on the business(y) things and I’ve got subjects like Fashion Marketing, PR and Trend Forecasting on my schedule. I am very curious and excited (as you can probably tell already). Bring it on!

Polka dots, stripes & statement earrings are all I want right now and why not all of the above at once? I am beginning to get much more into mixing of different prints instead of always wearing plain-colored clothing items. It is such a fun way to spice things up a bit and something I definitely need to do more. The earrings are from the extremely talented jewelry designer Nina Kastens. All the jewelry pieces she makes are gorgeous and this pair is no exception.

…an absolutely amazing year and first of all I would like to thank all of my lovely readers and followers! I feel like I have grown a lot as person this year. Especially through my move to London but also through my friends, family, work experience etc. I have sometimes felt that all this talk about New Years resolutions and “new year, new me” – kind of stuff is a bit of a faff, but as I have grown older I am beginning to see why it might be important to some people and why it actually could be beneficial to me as well. A new year is a fresh start and it gives you an opportunity to reflect on your progress during the past year and set some new goals you can work towards. I find it very helpful to set goals for the new year as it makes it easier to measure progress and I think it is important that we always try to improve ourselves. Therefore I have decided to make 3 New Years resolutions for 2018.
First of all I want to be as open-minded towards meeting new people as possible. Since I am going back to London by myself and decided to move into a student accommodation I will meet a lot of new people. Sometimes meeting new people can throw me a little bit out of my comfort zone, but I am not intending that to stop me.
My second resolution is to move out from my parents house and find my own place in Copenhagen. I know it will be a bit of a challenge to find something but I really do hope to succeed.
Last but not least I want to be happy. Happiness is key to fulfil all the other goals in life and to make one thrive. It is not because I am not happy right now but it should always be the number one priority. So that is what I intend to do this year.
Home is where the heart is and it has been wonderful to spend time with family and friends over the Christmas break. I am heading back to London next week and I am looking forward to it but it is also with a bit of sadness as it can be a bit tough to leave family and friends behind once again. I just need to remind myself of all the good things that are waiting to happen in London. New semester, new subjects, new people (and reunion with others). I hope you all had a very merry Christmas!
