Hello, summer and Hello, everyone! One thing I love about this summer season is the cheerful mood that’s around every corner in the city. There are people everywhere, cafés are popped up and so many outdoor activities at the moment. Despite the unpredictable weather this year, I still feel excited about this summer holidays. Axel and I have no plans for travelling, but instead, we will be camping in different places here in Denmark. I’m looking forward, as there are so many attractive cities in this country that I would like to see and get to know.

Aalborg is such a beautiful city that is full of charming spots. You already know from this post , that I love biking and taking walks. I feel like life is all good when I am on top of my bike biking around discovering the city’s neighbourhood.

On this day, I spent the rest of the afternoon and evening in a quiet spot that I found a few kilometres away from the city centre. It was a perfect place and all I what I needed. I might sound like a loner, but I do value and enjoy to have peaceful moments all by myself. It’s a great way for me to breathe and reflect. Normally, my days are full of a long to do list and many worries. So, these quiet moments allow me to rest my mind with no interruptions. I tend to feel recharged both mentally and emotionally.

For my outfit, I decided to wear shades of blue. I added more colour by using this bandana as a neck scarf and these Zara loafers that I got from the short trip to Gothenburg, Sweden.

Hope you like these pictures that I shot myself.

Thank you for reading, and talk to you super soon, again.

Happy Monday and great week, ahead!

Aahhhh!!! Another blogger event that I attended last week. I am always excited whenever I get invited to this kind of events. While it is fun to be part of, they give me the opportunity to build a relationship with brands, get to know other bloggers, and expand my network. I also find it an excellent way to create awareness for my little blog.

For this particular event, I got to discover Carre Jewellery brand which has a beautiful and amazing collection on jewellery. In my opinion, some of the jewellery has an antique touch with fine-looking coloured stone.  I’m the type of woman who likes minimal jewellery, but I must admit that I fell in love with their collection. The small details are a perfect finish to each piece, which makes them so unique and feminine. The great thing about Carré Jewellery is that they do not limit you. You can play around and create different looks. You can also mix and match for a more sophisticated look that can suit any personality.

It was a great evening and event filled with great moments. Karma Sushi delivered top quality sushi. My most favourite are the Karma Crunch and the Sizzling Tuna that tasted so amazing.

For my outfit, I opted for this flowy and asymmetrical off-shoulder dress with florals. I am obsessed with the fact that it exposes my shoulders and it comes with a belt to cinch my waist. Alternately, I can wear it without the belt and use it as a scarf or as an accessory for by handbag, which I can’t wait to try.

Thank you, Aalborg Bloggers x Carre Jewellery for a great event and evening.

And, Thank you for reading my post. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Talk to you super soon

Love..xx

Hello, everyone! On today’s post, I am sharing with you some things that made me proud and happy the last couple weeks. So, let’s get to it.

Copenhagen Marathon

It is a few weeks now since Axel, and I ran the Copenhagen Marathon.  We both wanted to accomplish something that was challenging. The thing is, I had not planned it to be so soon until, on my birthday 1st December, which also happens to be out anniversary date, Axel gave a ticket to the marathon. Although I did not tell him right away, I got mad because I knew that preparing myself and training at least three times a week was going to be the most difficult part.

There were moments when I could only run once a week due to the amount of work I had. It scared me, and I was afraid I would not make it to the end of the race. Throughout the last month before the marathon, I started to have an internal conversation with myself.  I focused solely on the positive things and kept on reminding myself why I should not give up, and that time did not matter. The most important thing was to get to the finish line.

Copenhagen was full of energy with big crowds that fully supported the marathon runners. It was amazing to hear someone call out “Michelle” or “Axel,” you can do this. Only a few kilometers till you home”. I’m glad we saw one of our closest friend Sara and her fiancé. It was a great feeling to see someone we know. It felt like an energy booster. Every single exchange and cheering from the crowds was encouraging and meant so much to us.

The hardest part of the race, was when I hit 34km. I was totally beat, and I felt like I was going to die. I started to focus on my inner dialogue that I had before the race, screamed out loud to my aching legs and kept on encouraging myself that I can do this. We gave it all and made it to the finish line at 4:51:00.  Thanks to everyone who supported us and a huge Thank you to Axel for being by my side.

Smelling flowers.

We are so lucky to have a small front yard garden that has the most beautiful rhododendron flowers. They have a variety of colors and only blossoms during spring or even the early summer season. I have enjoyed the view these past few weeks before the flowers withered. It’s a shame they don’t last so long considering how beautiful they are.

Capturing moments

I have been capturing more pictures lately, and I love seeing how much have grown since I started my photography journey. Photography is like therapy to me, and I enjoy it. It has introduced me to many people, and it has helped me capture some moments in my life that I like to sit and look back at them.

Biking and taking walks in town.

I have always loved the idea of biking or walking around in the city. It is refreshing and an easy way to clean out my mind. I also get to experience the city and find some hidden corners that I don’t get to see very often. Just the other day, when we were out for a walk, I noticed so many changes. New café’s that I am looking forward to trying during my summer vacations.

Thank you so much for reading..xx

When Coolshop Woman invited a bunch of bloggers to their exclusive blogger over a week, I knew it was going to be epic.  Coolshop Woman is part of the online Coolshop.com. I was excited to attend this event; to discover and learn something new. It was also an opportunity to interact and get closer to creative and like-minded people.

The evening started with a warm welcome from two sweet ladies who ushered us in, a photo session and cocktails. This blogger event was an introduction to different brands that Coolshop Woman sells in their online shop. We had the chance to try out some of their products as well. It was interesting to interact with the brands and hear the stories behind them. I also loved listening to their opinions about the products that were presented. Some of the brands that I interacted with are; SACKit, NORD Gourmet, Beauté Pacifique, and Peter Beier Chokolade.

Happy Juicery

One of the brands that Veroniccaher sister in law and I tried together was the Happy Juicery. They produce cold pressed organic juice in different flavors.  The green juice I had (I can’t remember the ingredients) was aammmazzing. Their juices are full of vitamins and minerals that are essential for our bodies. I was very pleased with the conversation we had with the ladies. My plan is to try Happy Juicery after the exam period. I am on a marathon with a busy schedule this month of April. Whenever I am busy, I tend to eat a little too much due to the pressure of trying to get things done. Three-day cleansing with Happy Juicery will give me that boost and detox to help me get back on my track again.

I had a blast at the event and loved catching up with everyone.

A huge Thank you to Coolshop Woman for having and spoiling me the entire evening. See you soon!
