Magasin Kongens Nytorv: The Marc Jacobs relaunch of DAISY

... always something new and exciting going on in Copenhagen! Yesterday Magasin du Nord was the location of relaunching DAISY for the Copenhageners.

The idea was aka Thelma & Louise (ha ha, without the ending) to drive aimlessly around in Denmark - no deadlines, no pre-fixed destination, just go with the flow. So we did... The above video tells it all, but I would also like to comment a few of my favorite photo memories: Ready-set-go! Googled the Thelma & Louise movie to get inspiration for my scarf. I ended up with a silky lovely from Danish desig...

Vitalhotel Alter Meierhof: My Michelin Spa Weekend

Ahh, two weeks ago I spent a precious weekend at Vitalhotel Alter Meierhof, together with Signe and Anna. And what a weekend...
