Summer Skincare w/ Rituals

There’s few things I love more than the beach and the ocean. Sand between my toes and swimming in a cold sea puts me at ease and makes me happy. And so I couldn’t be more excited that summer is here. The temperature has finally risen and we wake up to blue skies and sunny days ahead. The city awakens, and whenever possible, we all find ourselves outside, soaking up those precious rays of sunshine and enjoying this summer feeling while it lasts. I love to go out for picnics, to take day trips to the beach and to spend long, warm evenings with friends, blushing cheeks from the day-long sun, and sand everywhere included.

Restaurant As II

It's only holding on a little longer until Spring produce really is here. It's the last of the root vegetables and at As they're making the best of it. Juicy steak and soft parsnips with jus of puffed garlic, cod with a crispy skin with sweet beets and tangy orange, roasted celeriac root with hollandaise and bread crumb dusting -- waiting for Spring to come is very pleasant this way.

Abel

Some outtakes from a recent shoot for Abel where I got to play with light and shadows and natural props.

Abel is 100% natural fragrances.

"Rather than clouding your personality with a consistent intensity, the beauty of all natural ingredients is that they’ll evolve on your skin, working with your natural body chemistry to create a unique scent. One that will continually evolve throughout the day. Abel lives on your skin, until it fades away."

Snapshots from Copenhagen

Copenhagen always feels like coming home. After living there for 7 months to study at the University and work at a bakery two years ago, I've only been back twice. This time for an entire week - such a treat. I love visiting old, familiar cafes, resaurants, neighbourhoods but even more so new, exciting places I've never seen before. And as per tradition, there should always be many cinnamon buns involved when I'm there.

Brunch at Niels, Copenhagen

I had the pleasure of staying at By Nobis CPH on my most recent trip to Copenhagen, Denmark. The hotel is still quite new, and absolutely beautiful. It has it's own restaurant downstairs, Niels, which serves up classic, yet modern Scandinavian dishes with a little hint of French cuisine. On Saturdays and Sundays they serve brunch, with bubbles or cocktails. Something we could not resist.

Restaurant As

Restaurant As has been a favourite of mine for a long time. It's one of those places where you want to keep coming back to, with friends and family, to celebrate special moments. The food is increcible, the staff so talented. Most of the things you'll eat comes from local farms, have been used from head to toe and will leave you in awe with every bite you take.
