Lifestyle: Yayoi Kusama's Pumpkin Sculptures & Mirror Rooms

In a field of pumpkins Yayoi Kusama

Ever heard of Yayoi Kusama? No? See, me either. Though I don't really follow the art scene, I do read a lot of blogs and spend time on Instagram. Eventually I came across the Japanese artists' mirror rooms of pumpkins. "That looks awesome" was my first thought, followed by "I have to go there" (since I love a good piece of art, fashion or exhibition). Some research later I found out that this amazing setting is the key exhibit of Yayoi Kusama's "Pumpkin, Pictures and Mirror Room" exhibition which is currently held at the Victoria Miro Gallery in London. As the gallery is (unfortunately) closed on a Monday and during the week I'm at work, a visit to the exhibition seemed to be THE perfect activity for a Saturday morning.

Fashion: City Break Copenhagen

city break copenhagen fashion post

When you're on a city break exploring town centres and wandering around streets all day, you want your outfit to be casual. Depending on the weather most of us also make sure that our outfit is practical  - and since we are on a holiday - stylish. When I relaxed in Copenhagen a few weekends ago, I decided that my recently bought Oasis Anchor Blouse and khaki green Zara trousers make a perfect match for an all day out. Let me tell you all about the style!

Lifestyle: Copenhagen Weekender. Part 3

Hotel Chocolat latte Copenhagen

Why does time always go by so fast when you have fun? Alex and I were asking ourselves this question a lot when our last day in Copenhagen arrived. Whilst Mille returned to work, we spent the last remaining hours strolling around town, which included a visit to the Hotel Chocolat Cafe, a little shopping haul at Moss Copenhagen and a relaxed chill out on a bench at the harbourside.

Lifestyle: Copenhagen Weekender. Part 2

The Oresund Bridge panorama view

From my previous travel to Copenhagen in 2007, I had tonnes of Swedish Kroner left over which had lived in my drawers ever since. I thought they may feel a bit homesick and would love to return to their home country, so we planned to spent those Kroner on our Copenhagen Weekender trip. 

For around £7.50 pp I bought train tickets to Malmö and within 35 minutes, the train "flew" us over the Øresund Bridge (Baltic Sea) to Sweden. My friend Anna, whom I met during my time studying at an International Language School in London awaited us at the central station. I had not seen her in six years and though last time we promised each other it won't be so long again for our next meet up, it kind of did. It felt even more emotional when we spotted each other and hugged for a long time. What a fantastic welcome to Sweden!

Lifestyle: Copenhagen Weekender. Part 1

Copenhagen weekender travel post The Little Mermaid

Since I fell unconditionally in love with the UK in 1999, my history of travels has been....let's say it very moderate and uninspiring. In the last ten years or so I have had only two "real" holidays, namely to Iceland and to the Canary Islands, but apart from that it was either travelling around the British Isles (fun but exhausting) or flying home to Germany to see my parents (fun, stressful, exhausting) ...those visits which I don't really count as holidays.

Having lived in London for seven months non stop and not having left the city ever since, a get-away was much needed. There's been far too much drama and happenings lately so it was time to pack my suitcase, leave all the drama behind and fly off to Copenhagen. I visited the Danish capital years ago and back then it was only for a day trip, so it felt refreshing to return to Copenhagen and spend more time in this beautiful city.

Alex and I decided to take the late night flight on Friday after work, which nearly turned out to be a nightmare. Our Easyjet flight had a massive delay of 2 1/2h and I saw ourselves spending the night at the airport or worse, having to go back home to No10. But yeah....a few angry tweets and Costa's hot chocolates later, our plane took us away from the UK.

We arrived far past midnight at our hotel in Copenhagen and literally just collapsed into our bed.

Fashion: Daydreaming

Daydreaming Fashion Outfit of the Day

Seriously, has it really been nearly three weeks since my last post?!? I mean where has the time gone and also, my sincere apologies for posting so unregularly....but really I can't believe that! It's not even that so much has been happening in my life. You know, it's literally all eat, sleep, work, repeat. Back in the dearly-missed uni days, three weeks would have gone equally fast but with a lot more exciting events happening and also I would have never thought, how draining a 9-5:30pm office day can be. *starts daydreaming*
