WISHING FOR SUMMER

When I spoke to my best friend a week ago I casually told her that I won’t be buying anymore summer clothing since summer is over already (This happened on June 26th!). In Denmark we spend half of the year crawling towards longer days and shorter nights and half of the year mourning them. Since the longest day is on the Sankt Hans- June 20th we are in mourning already. The weather resembles autumn and I had to pull out my woollen cardigans to survive.

The light at the horizon is our trip to Italy. Real sun! Imagine! So I am filling up the half empty cup and looking forward to August because there they must have summer still!

2 HOURS IN THE NEW TATE MODERN

I love going places alone. Wandering around or sitting down in a restaurant/cafe. “Table for one please!” The best part is that you can take things at your own pace. Explore and relax. The same was we remember experiences we lived with others, we should make fond memories of our time alone! When was the last time you did something on your own? Not going grocer shopping but something that would inspire you?

On Saturday I had quite a bit of time to kill while waiting from my friend to finish up work.

I haven’t been to Tate before and with the new expansions it sounded too inviting to pass.

I had only a little over 2 hours so instead of paying the entry to see everything I went for the free exhibitions as they included Rothko and the famous Water Lillies by Monet.

I think seeying Rothko’s paintings in real life was the strongest epxerience art gave me in a long time. The feeling as if you were to fall through if you didn’t step back.

Follow Me To London: Monocle Cafe

When friends become family.

Here is the part I. of my London travels. I am not starting chronologically, instead I am showing you places and experiences I had as a mix of different posts. This is the first one because that’s the day we had most of the time together with Kay.

Monocle cafe was on our list for a good month and I really wanted to take a trip there to see what’s all the fuss about. I can imagine this place being your favuorite en-route to work pit stop, or better yet the ideal spot for a freelancer working from there. The staff is really sweet and so are the cardamom buns.

The street where Monocle is located is fairly quiet and when combined with great interviews and Monocle radio playing inside, I feel like it’s an oasis in the crazy London.

The menu includes awesome home made lemonade and orange juice, plethora of coffee based drinks and they do have soy milk on hand which for me is just perfect. The food is instaworthy say the least and therefore I will be making it a destination next time I come to London as well!

Follow Me To Copenhagen : Cafe Rist

I remember when I came to this famouse Copenhagen cafe for the first time 3 years ago. I barely knew what good coffee should taste like, or what’s the difference between a cappuccino and a late. One confused order later, I was sat there admiring the interior and sipping on an americano with a splash of cold soya milk. The same exact drink I ordered last Saturday when I went over there for a chill morning meeting with a friend of mine.

Kaffebar Rist is known to be one of the best places for coffee in Copenhagen so if you travel do put it on your itinerary!

This cafe is located in one of the infamous streets of Copenhagen called Værnedamsvej. It’s the same street where Aesop, Shop Dora, Granola, Gourmand and Blomsterskuret are located.  The street is perfect for streetstyle pictures as well so if you want some Copenhagen snaps this is a good place to be!


Ked som pred tromi rokmi prvykrat navstivila toto kafe, nemala som tusenie ako ma chutit a vyzerat dobra kava. Po par minutach zmatenej objednavky som si objednala svoj drink a mohla obdivovat interier a pripravu, ktorej venuju vela pozornosti a casu.

Rist je jedna z najznamejsich Kodanskych kaviarni. Nachadza sa v Ulicke ktora spaja dve zname Kodanske stvrte frederiksberg a vesterbro. Tato ulicka ja natlacena najcoolovejsimi obchodikmi, kvetinarstvami a kaviarnami. Najdete tu aj Aesop, Gourmand ci preslavenu Granolu. A sa chystate do Kodane urcite si Rist pridajte do svojho planiku a pridajte extra cas na objavovanie Værnedamsvej.

Weekly Inspiration #3: Scandinavian Dining Guide

When you are kid, you walk into your mum’s kitchen and you just ask hey where is this and that? She points you to a cupboard or a drawer and thats it. Perhaps it’s a perk of Easter European families, there most households accumulate a crapload of useful and just in case utensils. I hate hoarding things in all aspects of life and choose to make conscious decisions and what goes into my house. I would rather have less and well curated than have drawers overflowing with a mis- match of randomness I use once a year.

There are a few brands around that I think have all you need to setup your home. Of course I assume this is the time after you left a dorm room and are starting to build your own nest. They are basic, they have a character and they will suit you well forever. The biggest tip however is to actually think of what you need. Are you a soup fan or do you make pancakes every weekend? You need a proper scoop! Serving food on you terrace or balcony or bed? It’s a tray you are after!

Why you can’t deny breakfast invitations…

I skip breakfast… Always… When I get up and rush to get ready to be in the office in decent time, breakfast is the last thing on my mind. And anyways, it’s way too early for me to eat. I am more of a brunch person.

There are exceptions to the rule though. I made one last week at the Jalm&B’s breakfast event. Vegan brownies and locally sourced ingredients for bread and hindbær snitte are just too tempting.

 


 

Keď sa ráno ponáhľam do prace, raňajky sú posledná vec na ktorú myslím. Nikdy mi ráno extra nechutilo, práve naopak. Preferujem neskoršie raňajky/ skorší obed alebo brunch, tory je v Kodani aj tak populárnejší.

Z čašu na čas však treba urobiť výnimku, ako som urobila ja minulý týždeň, na evente Jalm&B. Táto malá pekáreň predstavovala svoje produkty z lokálnych ingrediencii, ktoré dostupne v lokálnom ekologickom obchodnom reťazci Irme. Myslím že si rovno urobím zásobu do mraziaku!

A čo vy? Ste ranajkové typy?

byqueenbee about me When I was a kid growing up in Slovakia, fashion and the dazzling lifestyle of international photographers and style icons was my escape. Through Tumblr and Pinterest I spent endless hours browsing and imagining what my life will become when I "grow up". Let me take you on a journey of seeking the things that matter in life, things that inspire life and my own search of the essence of lifestyle. Now, based in Copenhagen and working as a graphic designer and photographer hunting down the most inspiring places and experiences. This is a journey of becoming beautiful, strong and inspired.
