Valentine's day is coming up and it is time for gifts! It is usually quite hard finding something for guys- so I was super happy when I found BeWooden. They make absolutely beautiful wooden accessories for men. Check their website HE RE . They have a 10% discount going now, with the discount code "BW17". I think it is so cool to have something made from wood, I love all the designs- actually at this point I wish I was a guy and could wear all of it. Thankfully they also have products for girls! So make sure to check them out:) Also, the packaging is really nice- and as you can see above, it was also kinda a gift for my cats, they were super excited about it haha.

Překlad:

Valentýn se rychle blíží a tak je třeba zase myslet na nějaké ty dárky. Koupit něco pro kluky není žádná hračka, takže jsem měla velkou radost, když jsem objevila BeWooden, kteří dělají krásné dřevěné doplňky pro muže. Určitě se podívejte na jejich stránky , když zadáte kód "BW17", dostanete 10% slevu. A my, holky, nemusíme našim přítelům závidět, protože mají super dřevené kousky i pro nás! No a ty nádherný balení? Hlavně kočky z nich byly super nadšené, jak můžete vidět na fotkách, haha.

Ever since I joined NOUW I met so many cool new people! One of them is @jennifergeertsen whom I met at the NOUW brunch before summer. She is the nicest person in the world- I just wish she didn't live so far away. Unfortunately Jennifer lives like 4 hours aways from Copnehagen so I don't really see her very often. But last week we met up when she was visiting CPH to attend a few events and PR agencies and we also took these pictures. I love her outfit! Especially the coat and flared sleeves! I was kinda surprised how well the pictures turned out, even though it was really dark outside! Normally I have trouble getting pictures sharp when there isn't enough light! Hope you like the outfit and head over to@jennifergeertsen <3

P.S. Just arrived at my friend Elizabeth' s place... It has been a long day, the flight was delayed and so much other shi*t :D!

Hola! Good morning everyone! Today I am having an early start. The plan is as follows- shower, put on some clothes, go to the central station, take a train to Ørestad, help Bee and Michal wash the walls in their new apartment, paint the walls, go for a walk in Vestamager, go home and sleep! Sounds fun right? I am very excited because not only is this the third consecutive day that I am writing a post, it is also the third day that I am spending doing fun things and not staying on the couch or bed in my apartment. It feels really good to have a plan and something to look forward to :). I am going to the doctor's on Monday to once and for all find out what the hell is wrong with me lately ( lack of energy, tiredness- I also fainted once!!) so I hope I will get some answers soon. It is a bit annoying not feeling like yourself and being tired all the time- not only for me but also for the people who are around me constantly. But I realised I can't do much about it until then so I am trying to keep as active as possible and enjoy life.

The pictures here are from yesterday, when I met up with Rose at the Matcha bar. We took some outfit pictures and a yoga-clothes pictures. Very productive haha. I thought I would share the outfit with you guys, since Rose it always so stylish! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do :))

Hey guys! So today I want to write about something I have been really interested in since I started uni. We live in a world, where we are constantly buying new things, spending tons of money on food and clothes and electronics. And we are producing an insane amount of waste. Speaking for myself, I have started being more aware of this. I started noticing all the food i waste, when I moved to Denmark, because I was suddenly the one cleaning out the fridge and shelves in the kitchen. I found out that I buy a lot of things, that we don't eat. I realised that the opportunity to buy so many things in the supermarket stops me from thinking rationally about what I can actually eat in a week before it goes bad and I started hoarding things, that would go bad and I would have to throw them out. And I think I am not the only one who has this problem.

Food waste is a serious issue. It is estimated that one third of food that is produced goes to waste. Isn't that insane? If you think about it, it is crazy that one third of what we buy we throw out! Imagine all the money we, as individuals could save if we didn't overbuy. But food waste is only a part of it- today I want to discuss the increasing troubles concerning the retail industry. As I mentioned previously, I am not a big shopper. So I have a pretty empty closet, with a few pairs of pants, some sweaters, dresses etc. But i wear all of it, and only add to my wardrobe once in a while. But I know that some of my friends go crazy at H&M and other cheap stores, where you can buy nearly anything for under $10. I know that sometimes I buy things because they are cheap as well- I buy them because they cost for example 300DKK and not 3000DKK. And the issue is, that people are buying more then they can wear. If you go look into your closet, I am sure you will find a few items that you only had on once or twice and totally forgot that you had them!

The fact that clothes is so cheap today adds on to a whole different problem, that many are not aware of. Clothes are produced in huge factories in developing countries, where people work in horrible conditions and get paid very very little, because of the demand for cheap clothes that we create. The issue is that the factory owners in the countries where clothes is produced can not pay more to their workers, because of the fact that the need to cater to the needs of the large corporations placing orders and if they didn't they would loose business, because the retail brands would find other, cheap production sites.

In one way or another, there are many initiatives around the world, trying to deal with this. They try to make regulations from the side of the large corporations and try to raise the minimum wage and working conditions of the workers in the factories. All that is nice, but the real problem is that the corporations need to make a profit and get business from us, the consumers. And currently we want everything to be as cheap as possible, so we can buy more and more. So even if there are regulations and people trying to increase the wages and quality of life for factory workers, the price of the clothing is so low, that there is only little room to manoeuvre in. What I mean is that if H&M suddenly raised their clothes prices by 50% they would loose so much business. People would just move on to a different cheap retailer.

This is why I wanted to write about this, because we need to realise what is happening in the world and change the way we consume goods. We need to be more aware of the environmental and social issues that we are producing by demanding large quantities of cheap clothes. We really need to look at ourselves and try to change our behaviour. Because if we don't not only will it be very dangerous for the workers who make the clothes, but it will also have a severe environmental impact. All the clothes we dispose of ( even if it is to charity) will end up in land fills and is polluting the earth. There is a lot of interesting literature and documentaries online about this issue, I would recommend watching " The True Cost" a documentary, which you can find on Netflix about the retail industry and what is happening now, at the very moment that I am writing this. We have to wake up and realise that buying cheap clothes, in one way or another, is not good for anyone!

I know this post is kind of intense, but I really think that we need to raise awareness of issues that are important. And I have decided to start doing more research in the field of sustainability and consumption at school.

Hey everyone! Here are some pictures of @byrosemaria outfit from yesterday. I met up with Bee and Rose yesterday for coffee and a photo-session. I just realised that I haven't been taking pictures of people in a really long time! I kinda miss it! I actually love taking pictures of outfits! And trying to take pictures of details from different angles to mix it up a bit. Rose got a new Chanel bag, which is stunning! Now that she is super fancy and insanely important working for Elle I can't wait to see here bag collection grow <3. We are all so proud of her for getting the new job!

Today Tad and I have a fun day planned- going to Wood Wood to check out clothes- I might actually buy a colourful sweater- breaking the black habit haha. I also found a really nice t-shirt with "Copenhagen Loves Me", which I need in my life! We also want to go to Bastard café to see what all the buzz is about- it is a board game café, which I have been hearing about a lot lately. Now I just need Tad to wake up haha. Well, have a nice Monday guys!!
