Postcard from Copenhagen
checking in from Denmark
We have arrived to my home country! To be fair I've been here since July 10th because of my grandmother (read more about that here), and been pretty MIA since - I know - but Edward arrived last Saturday, and we've been exploring the wonderful country and summer in Denmark.
I've also been vlogging, so it's just a matter of time before there's a new video ready for you over on my YouTube channel as well. But first up: let's talk about my days in Copenhagen.
We started with five days in Copenhagen, and I was so excited to show Edward this cozy Scandinavian city that I spent a lot of my childhood years in. There's just such a mellow feel, especially because of the amazingly warm summer weather Denmark has been hit by this year. We paid a visit to Christiansborg, walked over to Amalienborg and through the Amalie Gardens, ate ice cream on Nyhavn, drank coffee on the streets from the cutest scooter gone coffee shop, had drinks in the sun by Nyboder, went on a boat ride to check out Copenhagen from the water. Edward was a tiny bit disappointed with the size of the Little Mermaid - although I had told him she's small - but he still got his photo. We saw the Black Diamond, the Opera, the new and old theaters, Strøget, and walked up Rundetaarn. We went to town.
So many of you loved this yellow linen dress over on Instagram, so I had Edward shoot some photos of it for this post. It's from an Asian site I recently discovered called YesStyle.com. It's basically a website with multiple different designers selling their clothes, so there are so many different styles to find and not only clothes, I found a lot of beauty products I would've loved to buy too. I found so many cute linen pieces - my favorite this summer - as well as this plastic fantastic bag in a 70's design.
The only downside to this website is the shipping. I waited for a month, which I hear is pretty normal since YesStyle have to get the clothes from the designers first and then send it out. I'm aware it's not environmentally friendly to shop clothes that has to be shipped from the other site of the world, but in my defense the pieces are very timeless and 100% cotton or linen, so they will be in my closet for a long time. The only item that I probably should've thought about twice is the bag, but sometimes life has to be fun, so I will donate it when I'm done with it.
