I’m From The 90s.

 No, I wasn’t born in the 80s. I’m from the 90s… born only a few months after the collapse of the Berlin wall. I was raised in Sofia, Bulgaria, a country that the Communist Bloc rigorously chew and spit with indifference, leaving us, the children of change, dazed and confused… with a sense of questionable belonging to ‘strong roots’ we had no memory of. Since an early age I was dreaming to leave Bulgaria and make a life for myself abroad. I enrolled to study in the UK. I travelled. I was exploring the West… until I met Philip. A boy born and bred in the the Kingdom of Denmark. A boy that used to splurge on McDonalds and watch the...
   

On the Way to Our New Adventure!

Here we are – all ready to roll. Philip has left behind his working uniform and we are going for the city chic look. Now I’m all in for converting him into a part-time fashion blogger. Well, good luck with that. hehe Her VERO Moda Linen Trousers (here) // Pumps by & Other Stories (here) // Ruffle Crop Top by Club L (here) // Bag by Leo Wulff (here) // Watch by Boom Watches (here) // Him Shirt by Tommy Hilfiger (here) // Lobby Trousers by Hope (here) or G-Star Pharrell Williams (here) // Belt by Tommy Hilfiger (here) The only problem with starting over is that despite all the blissful expectations we have for the future, the road that leads to it is...

Inspiration is ‘You’

The sun decided to pay us a visit while we were strolling down the streets of Århus! One of the most beautiful cities in Denmark, if you ask ME, which any proud Copenhagen-er (I did not just say that) would immediately argue against. But hey, I’m not Danish so I don’t really have a deep sense of belonging to The City. But the thing is – Århus inspired me. I could definitely see myself waking up here, taking long walks with Sofia, observing the people, writing at cosy cafes, and enjoying the beautiful scenery and cosy vibes. And yes, I do have a feeling that one day we will own a flat exactly here.White Shirt by Zara, alternative by D Brand (here)...
   

Ruffle Striped Top and Mini Backpack in Red

My style has changed a lot since I moved to Denmark. Back in the day I would go for bright and bold colours, but after only a few months in Denmark I began playing it safe, probably subconsciously doing my best to fit in the Danish minimalistic world. Well, with the days becoming longer and the sun shining bright, I decided that it’s time to shake up my style a bit and let my personality shine through my clothes. Thought my outfit is quite minimalistic – it’s my bag and shoes that make it pop. I went for a ruffle striped top (1 and 2), ankle length high waist cigarette jeans, my funky mini suede backpack in red (here) and favourite leopard print boots. Boohoo...

Road Trip Outfit

With the flat out of the picture, as well as Philip’s job, we’re all ready to dedicate plenty of time to travelling. We’re starting off our journey at his mom’s place, up in Jylland, before we hop on the plane to Bulgaria. Sneaks by Reebok (here) // Nudie Jeans (here) // Sunglasses by Quay Australia (here) // Rose Carrara Cream watch by Abbott & Mosley (here) // Alternative to my bag by Polo Ralph Lauren (here) // White Tee Franklin &Marshall (here) It feels so damn good to know that now we have the opportunity to do exactly what we want with our lives. And since I’m a travel junkie, I will be taking Philip on some pretty marvellous adventures from now on I’ve decided. Hence my big smile! Hopefully, we’ll be travelling quite a lot that summer, something that I...

Our Last Walk Down Lyngby Hovedgade

There is a lot things I will miss about Denmark…but the weather is definitely not among those things. Hehe. It might be summer where you live, but here we’re still rocking our winter coats and heavy military boots.  French Connection Colour Block Coat (here) or Mango Pockets Wool Coat (here) // Zara TRF Bermuda Shorts (here) // Black Tee by Minimum (here) // Alternative to my boots by KIOMI (here) // Alternative to my bag by Pieces (here)  // Sunglasses by Quay Australia (here) Yesterday the weather was indeed quite gloomy, all in tune with our reminiscent mood. We took our last walk down Lyngby Hovedgade to then hand the keys to our flat to its new owner. It was so bizarre saying ‘Hej-hej’ (Bye)...
   

A Letter to Sofia’s 16-Year-Old Self

 No you weren’t upset that day, despite that little grumpy face. You were just responding to the change of your surroundings. Was it the fact that the flat felt bigger (with the furniture getting fewer), or was it the way your dad and I behaved? I asked your dad to freeze the moment with a photo of us two. Our last photo in our first home! Your first home! Now you are no longer that baby girl fully dependent on us (though you’re still OUR baby). You are on the verge of becoming an adult and I thought to drop you a line to then put in a time capsule. You have probably wondered why we took the decision to move...

Perfectly Aligned

Yesterday I put on my high heels and went for a walk with Sofia. Awwww, I missed that casual-chic city look! Since I moved to Copenhagen my style has changed a lot. I have matured and so has the way I wear my new identity. Plus, it’s almost impossible to stumble upon anyone wearing stilettos in daylight here, which probably explains why everyone who crossed my path had a question mark on their face. But who cares? Now that Philip and I live a little bit closer to the city, why not go back to my city self? My biggest mistake during my stay in Copenhagen – I did my best to fit in. I tried to make Danish friends and to...

Embracing the Transition with a Spring-Fresh Look

Change is never easy.  The transition grabs you by the hand and takes you on a journey – sometimes rocky, sometimes smooth – but always exciting because you’re on your way to some place new. Even the seasonal transition can be tricky. Do you ever get the so called ‘Spring Break Blues’? I’ve decided to embrace the transition and celebrate it like a Dane! Going for a Spring fresh look despite the chilly wind.

Still Breastfeeding While Gradually Introducing Solids

I can’t believe that my baby girl is already eating solids with a a spoon, while sitting on a chair! If you’re a mommy you can probably understand my excitement and if not – one day you will. It was a struggle for me to decide how to handle the transition from full-time breastfeeding to breastfeeding and cooking for my little one. I was aiming for the 6 months milestone before introducing solids to Sofia’s diet, but then I realised that what works for other babies doesn’t necessarily mean that it would work for my own. The thing is – in Denmark babies are almost exclusively breastfed and most moms start with the solids around month 4. In Bulgaria most babies...

The Way Of Seeing

I tend to take the role of the saviour. If you find yourself in a difficult situation – I’d be there. I’d hold your hand, I’d listen and talk you through the whole thing. I won’t give up until you’re motivated enough to get up, dust yourself off, accept the situation and move on happier and with eyes all clear and ready to discern the beauty of the University. When it comes to me dealing with my own trash? I’m proactive – I get things done, I change the course of the events rather than wait around until someone does that first. Only that it took years for me to learn that. There was a time when I was more...

The Monday After

 The big packing has begun (more about what’s going on here)! Philip and I spent the weekend rearranging the flat, throwing things out, and sorting the rest in boxes. The flat feels empty and its cosiness has almost evaporated. I can’t help but feel nostalgic, blogging from our couch and looking at the empty shelves. Philip and I managed to turn his bachelor’s pad into our first home and it’d been years since I last called a place ‘home’. And here we are already embarking on a new adventure. Even though our life in boxes is bringing my anxiety levels up (yes, I’m still learning to control my perfectionism and not let it get the best of me), we decided to get all the annoying tasks out...
