Isabelle

31/05/2016

One of my closest swedish friends in London just had a baby!! I walked into her apartment, saw baby Isabelle, and didn’t know what to do with myself. I definitely didn’t want to pick her up, that thought scared me! Such a strange feeling as I love holding babies, but I don’t think I’ve been around a baby this young before?! She had just turned 2 weeks when I visited. DSC04638 copy DSC04640 copyI bought some fika (swedish word for cake with tea/coffee) at the curious yellow café down the road which was much appreciative. The chocolate balls had a hint of coffee and the kladdkaka (chocolate cake) was super gooey with coconut. Just how I like em.DSC04642 copy DSC04644 copyAfter staring at Isabelle for about an hour, my friend asked if I wanted to hold her and even though I still felt nervous it was all good once she was in my arms. What a fragile little thing! Seriously! DSC04650 copy She cried every now and again and kept looking for milk (I kept on saying I was the wrong woman for that..) and so I sat there feeding her for nearly an hour with a bottle.
Me and my friend spent hours and hours talking about pregnancy, her first few weeks, the future, switched to me and my life, my “problems” which seemed SO small compared to having a newborn at home.
I don’t think you ever feel quite ready to have a child, but I can’t wait till it’s my turn. Not now, obviously, but in a few years. The best compliment I have ever received is that I will be a great and loving mother one day. Those few words means the world to me.

Sager + Wilde, tgif!

27/05/2016

A couple of weeks ago I visited the lovely wine bar Sager & Wilde on Hackney Road with my friend Tom. This time we decided to check out the restaurant.
We had both had an AWFUL day at work and in our personal lives so we decided that alcohol was the answer to all our problems. 


The service at Sager & Wilde is spot on and our waitress was great. She recommended some great small platters (never thought I’d be this excited to post a picture of tomatoes but they were SO good) when we got hungry and was quick to find a chair when Tom’s brother joined us. I’d love to go back in the evening and dine inside because it’s just too pretty not to.

Nyhavn (new harbour) and more architecture

27/05/2016

On our last day in Copenhagen we decided to check out all the interior shops and nyhavn (new harbour). Unfortunately for us it was a red day and absolutely everything was closed, so upsetting!DSC04602 copy We managed to find the Danish Architecture Centre and decided to check it out.DSC04611 copy IMG_0138 copyBeautiful old building.DSC04613 copy We saw the exhibition 52 weeks, 52 cities by photographer Iwan Baan. Stunning pictures from all over the world.DSC04615 copyA must. Gift shop.IMG_0147 copy
Found a cool orange wall and decided to have a little shoot. I think I look so mini underneath those massive windows!DSC04619 copy DSC04630 copyDSC04620 copyWe got caught in the rain but managed to get a few pictures of the famous harbour! Packed with tourists, restaurants and gift shops.

We had such a lovely time in Copenhagen and I can’t wait to go back. When we do, I will cycle more and definitely visit more interior shops – which denmark is famous for.

Vordingborg, Pate Pate and Troyboi

26/05/2016

On Saturday we woke up bright and early and had breakfast before taking the train to Vordingborg in south Denmark to visit my Auntie and cousins. I don’t have a big family, but the family that I have are spread across Europe and Asia which makes it quite hard to keep in touch (thank God for Facebook/Instagram/Skype!).
We had a short and sweet tour of her tiny little town, ate Pho (Vietnamese noodle soup, the best) and just talked.
IMG_0134 copy DSC04549 copy DSC04550 copyDSC04559 copy  In the evening I spent a bit of time researching where to go for a late dinner. We definitely wanted to try and eat in the meat market cause it’s meant to be super hip and cool (haha) and that’s basically how I found Pate Pate. The restaurant had really good reviews so our expectations were high.DSC04560 copy DSC04562 copy DSC04563 copy Interior cool, service cool, so far everything was cool.DSC04565 copyWe ordered drinks and 5 small plates of food to share.DSC04575 copy Burrata and tomatoes, super creamy and deliciousDSC04578 copy Super cheesy risotto.
As I said earlier we had a few more dishes but it was quite dark in the restaurant and I hate using the flash on my camera, haha. Whilst waiting for our last dish we noticed our neighbours got their food served before us and we had now waited for a good 30 minutes.  We were quite full by this point and got slightly annoyed over the extreme wait. When we finally received the dish we simply asked if they could delete if off the bill because we had waited too long and had to be somewhere. The waiter said no, so we kindly asked to speak to the manager who asked how long we had waited and apologised. Because of this little mishap my overall feeling of the restaurant is just.. meh. I don’t DON’T recommend it but I have been to better places.

During our meal G was texting with a friend who just happened to be in Copenhagen. Her boyfriend Troy had a gig and said “COME!”. We jumped in a cab and ended up at random basement club called Rust.
DSC04583 copy DSC04588 copyI hadn’t heard much of Troy’s music previously but I now get why the crowd went absolutely mental. His music makes you want to go a bit crazy, haha. He had some hardcore fans and I was SO grateful to be able to stand on the side of the stage!

Check out Troy’s soundcloud here!

Ribs and Tory Lanez

25/05/2016

The reason for us going to Copenhagen wasn’t only to see the beautiful city that it is, but to see Tory Lanez perform. Just before the concert we found a quite random american diner where we had ribs, yuuuum. Ridiculously messy but oh so good.Tory Lanez performed at the cinema (the venue is actually called cinema, but in danish) which was in the area where we lived. We had a few drinks and watched him perform from afar – which I prefer.
 
Now this guy is absolutely crazy. He crowdsurfed a few times and WALKED all over them, climbed the balcony on the opposite side of the stage and smoked some weed. I’m sure security had enough work to do!
Great show though, really, haha.
