Food and Coffee, London

I have so many great pictures from London that I decided to share a bit more with you today. As you may have read in the previous post @byrosemaria , Elizabeth and I went to Ladurée in the afternoon to catch up before walking around London. Whenever I travel to a place where they have this amazing pastry store I always stop there one of the days. Many years ago when I was traveling through South France with my parents we stumbled upon one store and saw the inside through the window and we were like " is this soap? or some decorations?" And then we went inside to ask and we found out it was sweets and we were forever hooked. Since then when I still lived at home and traveled I always brought my mom a big box of Macaroons home. But now, I don't have anyone who loves them so much in Copenhagen so I usually stop just for a small cake in stead of buying a whole box to bring home. Yesterday I went for a chocolate and pear cake and Elizabeth got rose flavoured macaroons with cream and raspberries. I have never tasted such well balanced pastries ever in my life, accept for when at Ladurée. I think everyone should go there at least once in their life and well, make their life a bit sweeter :)

Překlad:
Mám tolik skvělých fotek z Londýna, že jsem se rozhodla dneska vydat další článek. Jak už jste možná četli v postu, @byrosemaria, šly jsme si společně osladit život do Ladurée. Kdykoli cestuju na místo, kde mají tohle úžasný cukrářství, nikdy ho neminu a aspoň jednou za dobu pobytu ho navštívím. Před lety jsme s rodičema při projíždění jižní Francií narazili právě na Laduréé, koukali jsme do výlohy a nevěděli jsme, jestli to jsou nějaká mýdla, nebo dekorace. Šli jsme se dovnitř zeptat, zjistili jsme, že je to cukrářství, no a od té doby je to láska. Když jsem ještě bydle doma v Česku, po každý jsem při cestování přivezla mamce domů velkou krabici makronek, teď ale nemám v Kodani nikoho, kdo by je miloval tak moc jako mamka a tak se vždycky zastavím spíš "jen" na dortík. Včera jsem zkusila čokoládovej a Eliz makronkovej dortík s příchutí růže, s krémem a malinama. Tyhle luxusní francouzský zákusky jsou prostě vynikající a nikde jinde jsem tak dobrý ještě neochutnala. Takže až na Ladurée při cestování narazíte, v žádným případě ho nevychte a oslďte si život, tak jako my v Londýně. . :)

Copenhagen, Food and Coffee

Good morning guys! I am off to shoot with @copenhagenstories now and then meeting my cousins and we are taking a road trip up North from Copenhagen. I am super excited to check out some new parts of this amazing country! I just wanted to share some pictures from yesterday's visit to Original Coffee at the Illum rooftop. If you are traveling to Copenhagen, this is most definitely a place to visit! The coffee is good and the views are amazing. You get a look over Højbro Plads and Strøget. When I get coffee I always get it in a to-go cup, because I am super slow at drinking it, but if you get a lattee or cappucino the latte art is great there! So it is also a nice place to get that perfect picture of coffee :). So- I am off! But you guys enjoy the pictures and I will share some pictures from today's trip later :)! Have a nice Saturday!!

Food and Coffee, Events

I had the MOST AMAZING brunch today. I attended an event for Sugarbear Hair- an amazingly delicious little gummy bear, that does wonders to your hair. A few days ago when I was visiting ImpressionPR Christina introduced me to the product. It is perfect because I am growing my hair out, so this will help me achieve my dream length. The bear is a vitamin, which you take two times a day and it helps growth and strength of the hair. Besides that it is also delicious. I have some to test at home, so when I have tried it for some time I will tell you guys how it works! But I am sure it is perfect and effective, because one of their ambassadors are the Kardashians- and we all know how amazing their hair is right? So I super excited to use it and see the results.

The bruch was held at Nimb, a restaurant / cafe right by Tivoli. At the very end there is a private room with a beautiful view and tons of sunlight. And the food- oh my god! There were oysters, champagne, all the brunch usuals, so much fruit! I can't see how I can ever eat breakfast without thinking about that food haha. I ate way too much!

Food and Coffee, Photography, Still Life

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you guys enjoyed a nice weekend! I wish that weekends were longer- there is not enough time for everything. On one hand weekends are supposed to be for relaxing, but I mean honestly- no grown up person believes that! For us, weekends are for catching up on work or readings. And even though we know that we have the days off, we still feel like that we are doing something wrong when we actually rest!

But not this weekend! I took the time off and did things that I like and enjoy. And it worked out pretty well :). The pictures I am sharing today are ones I took on Friday. For the first time I actually took a lot of time to make a still-life setting and I am so so happy about how they turned out. I will have to do this more often! I really like the colour of the pictures- the flowers set a really nice autumn cozy mood! I took the pictures on my window, there is a space about 1,2m x 60cm- so not very big, but in the winter it is all I get, because that is where there is good light. Being a photographer in Scandinavia in the winter months is tough! There are only about 2-3 hours of workable light. And if someone has a full time job, well then they don't really see sunlight for a few months haha. I hope you guys like the pictures, as I said- I am so happy about them :)

P.S. The products that I styled are from Eva Solo:)

Food and Coffee, Copenhagen

Today was my friends Nima's birthday! Since we are getting old, we kinda stopped the whole- huge bar party celebration so now we go out for lunch haha. New traditions I guess! So we went to Hija de Sánchez to get some Mexican food. The restaurant is a small place in kødbyen, so it is possible to sit inside- but there are only two tables! And today the weather was so nice so we stayed outside in the sun! We got a lunch menu for 150 DKK. The lunch menu is two tacos, rice and black bean sauce. We also ordered nachos- I feel like with Mexican food nachos are necessary! I love that there are constantly new restaurants opening in kødbyen. I am so lucky I live in such a vibrant area! But yeah this food was so delicious I can really recommend it to anyone! I will definitely be coming back frequently. Maybe for takeout! Because in the winter sitting outside is not very nice haha!
