I am back from Copenhagen and as everyone promised me it would be: it was indeed a lovely trip. Copenhagen is the perfect size for a three-day stay, not too big to do everything on foot and with just enough to do. It was good shopping for eldest and the weather was, despite being rather chilly, at least dry and sunny when it mattered. We always try to do at least one VERY cheesy touristy thing and we opted for the boat ride through the harbour but this actually turned out to be the best thing on the whole trip! Well that and the amazing hamburgers at a place called Cock’s & Cows. Oh and something very noteworthy: I did not have one bad cup of coffee anywhere! Seriously, they do really good coffee. The Danes are super friendly and accommodating and as eldest remarked the minute we arrived ‘They are very well dressed!’.
Once again I am off and leaving behind several blank spaces here: I will be in Copenhagen with eldest till Thursday, doing a lot of sigh-seeing, shopping and hopefully having meaningful conversations while eating good food.
It has been 1277 days since starting this blog. For the slightly number-impaired folk like myself: that is 3 years, 5 months, and 30 days. Now the reason I so randomly bring this up is because someone recently said ‘Wait? You still run that blog? Why?‘.
So I actually had these in my hands, in the London Arket store, and did NOT try them on for size. And I am now sat here thinking “WHY THE H**** DID YOU NOT TRY THEM ON!’.
So after seeing blogger Emma Hill (and by the way: I am addicted to her hilarious weekly vlogs) looking amazing in this H&M linen suit I have clicked it into my virtual shopping basket no less than four times to…well you know…’have a long hard think about it‘ first.
Now this looks good: Mango’s new Committed collection.
Back from my solo trip to London the other week and I have to admit: I am happy to be home. I stayed in Shoreditch this time and to be completely honest: I wish I had a companion instead of going solo, mostly because it was very cold and wet and I found the notion of spending time on my own in restaurants and bars less appealing this time around.
Minimal packing for a one night get-away.
In case anyone ever wondered if I actually buy any of the stuff I show here, the answer is ‘Oh yes.’ My parcel delivery guy can also attest to that (we are on a first name basis *cough*). And since I have come to loathe shopping in town I almost always resort to online shopping. Nothing beats trying on clothes in the comfort of my own dressing room (I mean come on Zara, what is with the preposterous long queues?) and the ability to match outfits on the spot in pleasant lighting.
