Brick Lane (Alternative Title: Did I Actually Wear My Pajamas Outside?)

Monki shirt | H&M trousers | Adidas sneakers | Zara bag
I recently came back from a few days spent with my friends in London. London is probably my favorite city in the world and I will never get sick of visiting there. We went to check out Brick Lane, as neither of us had ever been, and I really loved the vibe of the markets there, not to mention the street art. I snatched up this shirt on sale in Monki before I went, and I think I would go as far to say it is my favorite shirt. Ever. It look like I'm wearing my pajamas, and I'm pretty sure that is the best thing about it. I also have a soft spot for my new Adidas Superstar II sneakers. More London pictures coming soon.

Take care xx

New In: Missguided Mules

Missguided Patka Open Toe Mules
For a while, I've kept an eye on the 'mule' trend, and even picked out a few that I liked on Zara and Topshop, among others. Something was always a bit off, though, like the heel was too high for my preference, or the price slightly too steep. When I saw Amy from The Little Magpie wearing these babies, it was love at first sight. Luckily for me, the only pair available was in my size, and for only £30 (+ 10% student discount!) what was a girl to do? Here are a few ideas on how I'll style them.
Take care xx

Change The Rules of Tattoos

TTTattoo Arrow Tattoos*
 When TTTattoo (The Temporary Tattoo Store) contacted me, and asked for my opinion on their company, I was instantly curious, as it seemed like such a simple, but fun idea. Basically, they sell temporary tattoos, just like the ones you used to get on holidays or in gum packs as a kid, only more stylish and cooler. Their aim is to bring taste and design to temporary tattoos, and make them an essential accessory to your outfit. I don't have any real tattoos myself, and even though I think some can be so pretty, I doubt wether I'll ever be able to decide on one design to get. That's why TTTattoo, is so brilliant, because you can find loads of different designs and change your style from day to day. I picked out the arrow designs as I thought they were very dainty and versatile. You could do them several in a row, like the packs they come in, cut them out seperately or even cross them over, like I did. I was very surprised with the longevity of the tattoos, provided you dont scrub excessively on them, of course. It was fun being tattooed for a few days, and it even promted some shocked reactions from my friends. It is definitely something I would consider doing for a night out or another event. You can check out their designs at tttattoo.com

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream (+ GIVEAWAY)

H&M shirt | Topshop jeans | Forever21 shoes
This week, the new scent from Marc Jacobs "Daisy Dream" is released in Denmark, and to celebrate that, a Daisy Dream Pop-Up Shop has been raised in Copenhagen city. I was lucky enough to be invited to the opening of the shop this past Monday, to have a look at the Daisy Dream universe and of course try out the perfume (and maybe also have a little taste of the gorgeous daisy cake pops). The original Daisy perfume by Marc Jacobs is iconic, and this new, fresher twist on it creates a new angle upon being youthful, lively and romantic. With notes of blackberry, grapefruit and pear as well as jasmine, musk and coconut water, the Daisy Dream scent is a light and airy mix of floral and fruity.
I, myself, is a huge fan of Marc Jacobs scents, and two of my absolute favorite perfumes are the original Daisy and Honey, so the release of Daisy Dream thrilled me. Not only does the perfume smell absolutely amazing, the bottle is without a doubt one of the prettiest things I have ever seen. It is very girly, but much more sleek and sophisticated-looking than some of the previous Marc Jacobs perfume bottles, and the liquid itself is the prettiest sky-blue color in the bottle.

For my Danish readers: I perioden 4.-10. august finder i Daisy Dream Pop-Up Shoppen i Magasin på Kgs Nytorv. Hvis i kigger forbi og uploader et billede til Instagram med hashtagget #mjdaisychain og #mjdaisychaindk, får i en gratis prøve på den nye parfume, samt er med i konkurrencen om at vinde fede præmier fra Marc Jacobs. I kan følge dem på Instagram @Mjdaisychaindk.

Oasis

A few days ago, my friend Sisse (RagsnRecords) and I took a walk in the Botanical Garden in Copenhagen. I always love exploring new places and the Botanical Garden is an amazing little piece of nature smack in the middle of the city. I wore a Zara t-shirt, Topshop jeans with DIY rips and Birkenstocks.
 
Take care xxx

Twenty

I'm still surviving without a computer, so proper blogposts are still put off for a little while, unfortunately. But I am now a year older and apparently your 20's are supposed to be the best years, so there's always that. xxx

Quick Update

Just a little pop in to say sorry that there hasn't been any new posts this week, my computer unfortunately had a minor breakdown (I think it's the heat) and I had to send it to get fixed, so I'm currently trialling the Blogger app! So far so good. Hopefully I'll get my laptop back and have regular posts up and running as soon as possible, as I have my 20th birthday coming up in 2 days, and a few future posts I'm very excited about! I hope you're all enjoying the summer! xx
