Sorry (but not sorry at all) Carrie Bradshaw but the scrunchie is back. If you are a true SATC fan like me (I have watched the whole series a hundred times already) you definitely remember how Carrie was teasing her boyfriend Jack Berger because the main character in his new book was wearing a scrunchie. “A scruuuunchiiiiiie?!!” She told him no one in New York City would ever wear a scrunchie (that poor man). He was a nice guy though, but he might have taken things a little too personal.
Anyway, as I said the scrunchie is back and I absolutely love it. It just makes a ponytail or a bun that much more interesting and fun. Besides the scrunchie I have also noticed how big of a trend these (Korean) hair clips have become so I had to have one myself. Isn’t it just to adorable? Look out for all the hair candy. It is just as addictive as sugar.

I started the week with taking some time for myself. It is so important to just switch off once in a while. Currently reading Rupi Kaur’s second poetry collection (because I couldn’t get hold off the first one). I highly recommend it!
Then I met with Malene for a coffee and a croissant at Hotel Sanders. I was very into the coffee as you can probably tell from the picture.
I also got time to catch up with my good friend Cecilie, whom I met at London College of Fashion. She recently moved to Copenhagen so I will hopefully see her a lot more when I’m returning from London in April.
A gorgeous colour combination in central Copenhagen. I’ve spent a lot of time the last week just walking around enjoying the city.
Another coffee date with Malene. This time after attending KEA connect (open house). Crossing my fingers that I will get in this summer!

I also had time to pay a visit at Glyptoteket. It was very busy that day but I managed to take a picture without anyone in it.
As many of you might already know I am at home visiting family and friends in Copenhagen. It is so nice to be back despite the absolutely freezing cold (temperatures dropped to -8 yesterday). It’s a bit of a change compared to London weather (though most Londoners complain about the “cold” weather all the time). We decided to escape the freeze by walking into Glyptoteket. I love the architecture of this place and the palm trees in the middle makes you think of summer. When you are away from your home town for a long period of time it makes you appreciate the city even more when you get back. I feel like I have fallen in love with Copenhagen all over again and though I love London and it feels like home to me now I don’t mind moving back in 1.5 month.

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!

After my recent ‘move’ to London it comes naturally to me that moving away from home and getting my own space will be one of the next phases of my life. I feel more ready than ever to take the step and I can’t stop looking at interior pictures on Tumlr and browsing all the interior stores I can find. I know that when you are 20 years old and decide to move away from home the budget is quite tight – but you can still dream right?
One of my biggest dreams has always been to get a bathtub in my home. Ever since my family and I moved from a tiny apartment to our current house this has been something that I have wanted (which clearly isn’t achievable as many Copenhagen apartments don’t even contain a proper shower) as our apartment had a bathtub. I was devastated to leave that bathtub behind (I was five years old at the time). Other than a bathtub a huge bookshelf has also been on my wish list for my upcoming apartment for a long time. It would be amazing to actually have an overview of the books that I own and I think I would read much more books then (a soft armchair would definitely also play a role when it comes to making me read more books!).
I am also madly in love with everything velvet at the moment (at least when it comes to home stuff). I would love to have a velvet sofa. Not necessarily a pink one (as the one pictured above) but maybe a dark grey or blue would be nice? But I must admit that a pink sofa would be great to get some color in there too which is another priority of mine.
Last but not least I dream of high ceilings and big windows that allow a lot of light into the apartment. Light is probably my number one priority mainly because of my huge obsession with cactuses but also for a million other reasons that I just can’t explain. Everything just looks more beautiful in lots of sunlight.

These pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago where it was still a bit chilly (but sunny though). Therefore I was wearing my beloved rusty red cashmere knit from J.Crew. It has saved me from many outfit crises on those days where it isn’t cold but not warm either.

I’m massively into the Gingham trend at the moment. I’m not completely sure why though… I found this pair of trousers in the back of my closet, which I bought a couple of years ago. Finally they are getting some attention as they have (almost) never been worn.
