Mille at Mother restaurant

My beautiful friend Mille is visiting from Dubai – she’d like to invite her bambinos for sourdough pizza at Mother. Good choice, M xx

… Aperol Spritz – at Mother restaurant! Temperatures flirting with 30 degrees Celcius now, we need to find tools on How To Chill. A cool Aperol Spritz is just one (lovely) solution :O)

Add olives & fresh bread and you’re ready to Copenhagen chill.

What a day! Only 40 minutes by train from Copenhagen you find a piece of heaven on earth – get directions here. It’s called Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. And it’s spectacular – why not bring a picnic bag and start outside, enjoying the fresh air.

My friend Mikaela brought a cooler bag with home baked scones, pizza, tapenade… and apple virgin bubbles!

Artist Emil Nolde, a German painter and filmmaker (1867-1956) is enlightening the exhibition right now:

And from New York School painter and printmaker Philip Guston (1913-1980) takes it away also. One of my personal Louisiana favorites.

From the Louisiana entrance: Inviting, exciting – a must see when you’re in Copenhagen.

Just spending 2 minutes by Nørreport Metro Station you feel the intense atmosphere of Copenhagen Fabulous Lifestyle. People on the move.

Here’s two of them – the above cyclist making a difference with a big smile. And the next cyclist flashing how to make perfect smokey eyes – yep, I’m SO jealous, have never ever succeeded in doing it myself. Oh well, a minor thing, I know, but if you happen to know The Secret please tell me how (O:

a-g_BLOWWell, hello there ;) It’s time for Tour de France – not that I watch it that much… except for the exciting finish. And for the lifestyle and the fashion! The Yellow Jersey is a fun fashion phenomenon – and yes, I love yellow – obviously (O:

The other day I received this visualized story in my inbox, from yellow jersey.co.uk - the story of the Yellow Jersey which I find quite interesting, so I love to share it with you.

Happy reading, and let’s go bold and yellow this summer!

Why the Danes don’t watch that much TV any more

Last year the Danes watched traditional TV 8% less than the year before – and it was the third year in a row with decreasing numbers.

In return we love the streaming services! I’m no exception to the rule. In fact, I don’t watch traditional TV at all, since a year ago. So, when I’m not unwinding by swinging in my hammock…

hammock copenhagen

LOL – I wish this was my hammock! Mine is OK though, not attached to a coconut tree but a Danish apple tree (O;

… I enjoy the streaming services very much, choosing the movies and series I want to watch – when I want to watch it. My favorites are documentaries, like Bloomberg.

Now Danish Telmore has launched Telmore Play, where you get access to streaming as well as HBO, magazines – and good deals on mobile services. Have a look…

 

Wishing you a happy 4th of July!

Peace & Love,

Ps. This is a sponsored post. The opinion is always my own. Are you enjoying streaming services as much as I do? Comment this post and let me know :)

Should I wear this party dress this 4th of July, too – or…? :D Dress from a local Copenhagen flea market

Well, hello there ;) So many of you my lovely readers reside in US. Or come from the States and live in Copenhagen. And I bet you’re looking forward to Friday and to celebrating 4th of July. Hey, I am! So let’s take the party to Copenhagen, too…

This Friday I’ll make sure to have a big and tasty burger with homemade fries.

And I was pre sneak-eating my favorite last night, at Hard Rock Cafe Copenhagen:

Hard Rock Cafe Copenhagen

We had a great meal; the Hard Rock Cafe Legendary Burger is super tasty – and it’s big, love it! The homemade fries taste fantastic together with the dip, that lingers on the tongue with a spicy touch. Frida chose a smaller burger in the children’s menu – and both kiddos love the free refill of drinks – “just like when we were in California 3 years ago”. DKK 145 for the Legendary Burger – go go – and it’s free of charge including a soda if 4th of July happens to be your birthday :D Or – how about party like it’s your birthday :)
