 Monday morning last week, I jetted off before 6:30 to Copenhagen. I planned to travel by myself whilst my parents stayed at home, both too busy with work. I had an very independent week exploring the city with one of my best friends Maria who is half danish herself. I not only got a view of Copenhagen in a completely different way but also got a little taster of the freedoms of roaming/living in a beautiful city like Copenhagen independently. We made good use of the map from the airport but still got lost a couple of times, laughing sometimes at our directionlessness and complete disorientation. Most nights I moved from place to place i.e. I was lucky enough to get round and catch up with a number of family and friends. Everyone was SO welcoming, and thats why I was actually so confident in setting off going alone. For me , there was always someone I know nearby who could come and pick us up or recommend a place to visit. 
 Maria and I simply wandered through the streets of both central Copenhagen around Kogens Nytov, and a little further out in an area of Hellerup. We definitely weren't too busy and window shopping was a major activity. We found loads of time for cafes and cute little lunch spots such as Serenity Cupcakes, Original Coffee and Fedco's Deli. (all pictured) One day we were also set on splashing out on a big lunch at Sticks and Sushi (my favourite but very expensive sushi restaurant) but then opted for the nearby hot-dog stand instead. For me, this time to chill and just mooch around was much needed. 

My week was also greatly filled with puppy loving like cuddling and icy walks in search of the next hot chocolate pit-stop.

I am off to Copenhagen this week for a couple of days of shopping and exploring the city with my good friend Maria, and I can't wait! I am so lucky to have friends and family that I can stay with and they all always make me feel so at home so I cannot wait to catch up and hygge with all of them too.

I found the shirt is the corner of my wardrobe yesterday and thought it was perfect for a chilled, saturday afternoon. It is actually from my local kids charity shop and I think is a boy style but nevertheless is super comfy. I layered it with a basic black and white striped t shirt, a simple gold necklace and a nice pair of blue jeans.

Last week these gorgeous furry hair bobbles arrived from a cute Swedish brand that I actually discovered through instagram. Their name is Pellobello, and they make well priced and absolutely amazing fur coats and accessories like these. Personally, I love these SOOOOO much and I think they are such a simple but different accessory. In particular I have used them loads for school as I usually just whip my hair up in a pony so it is out of the way and these furry bobbles add some colour and easily create a much more interesting look for the everyday! 
I love all the colours and I am planning on buying some more as they are perfect little gifts for friends.  The blue colour, as you can see from these photos, is strikingly vibrant and bright, and the army/moss green is also amazing and is extremely in/trendy at the moment.

This weekend I have basically done nothing, and although I have been very bored, I really needed to properly chill out.  
On friday I baked these amazing healthy caramel, nutty, chocolate, fudgey fridge cake slices before heading out to a quick, vietnamese dinner with my good friend Ingrid. My Saturday consisted of sleeping in and going to my dance class as well as blobbing around, wasting time for the rest of the afternoon and evening. Today, hasn't been that different to yesterday except I got a little more done like my homework, a cycle ride to our local farmer's market and a cute cafe trip with my friend (who also took these outfit photos)

I am loving this new army green coloured denim skirt from Asos that I recently received as a late christmas present from my best friend. I am so glad it fits me properly because sometimes I feel A-line skirts are a little bit to triangley and pointy for me.

My boots are also from Asos. Although it is very difficult to make out from these photos, these have a small, perfectly chunky heel that allow my little legs to not completely drown as they have a tendency to do in chunky shoes with too wide an ankle or thick a sole. I have been using these loadssss this winter. 

I thought I would additionally try to show the beautiful gold details of my outfit, although it is very hard to capture because I lost track of time and suddenly there was no natural light to make everything clear. My T- shirt is is rimmed with a really cute gold, sparkly piping and was bought last year in Copenhagen from the brand Hartford.  The golden cross pendant has been at the jewellers for the last two weeks were a weakness in it's jump ring was being remade, it was originally a christening gift to my mum and I absolutely adore the tiny details on it.
