My Thoughts On Being Pregnant Abroad

Now thinking back – only a year ago my thoughts on getting pregnant were still a little seed far away from being planted. Pregnancy was something I had never previously considered and my only goal in life was getting my career back on track and finding a way to settle down in Denmark. But fast-forward a year and here I am – 9 months pregnant from the person who stole my heart. I do feel a little bit anxious from the thought of having a baby, but the excitement does make up for all the worries I have. And I do have to start getting used to the idea that in about a month time I will be walking around with...
   

A Sneak Peek At My Surprise Baby Shower

One of the best days of my life. Literally! It turns out that Philip had suggested to my friends to throw me a baby shower, something that’s not trendy in Bulgaria at all. In fact, he wanted to make sure that I could see all of my girlfriends together, having in mind that I no longer have the chance to meet up with them as often as I’d like. It was our first Sunday in Bulgaria and Philip and I went to have our nails done – yes, I managed to force him – but it turns out he actually liked it! He-he! Anyway I did find it a bit weird that after a night out he had the energy...

Joining Lala Berlin’s SS17 ‘City Jungle’ with an On-Point Outfit

#CPHFW SS17 is officially over – but in comparison to last year when my life literally revolved around it – joining all the events and making sure that I ticked off all the shows and showrooms –this year things weren’t quite the same. As much as I wanted to get all excited and even stress about the outfits I was gonna wear – it didn’t really happen. I had no energy to run from one show to another and enjoy the crazy fashion vibes (CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?) as my mind and body were somewhere else. Roll Neck Skinny Rib Jumpsuit (here) //  Espadrilles Ca’Shoot Copenhagen here  or alternative ASOS JELLY BEAN here // Dior Mirrored Sunglasses (here) Hopefully, when Sofia-Malou is finally in...
   

Third Trimester Maternity Style: The Holy Playsuit

If there is a piece of clothing I cannot live without at the moment – that’s the playsuit (a.k.a romper) or in other words anything one piece. Since my bump has taken the shape of a melon, I can’t imagine myself wearing anything but comfy attire. The maternity pants have already tightened up a lot around the bump (and bum which has also doubled in size) and all I want for my body is to feel unrestrained and free. Also, the rompers and jumpers are something you can wear even after the day of delivery so investing in them (if you don’t already own a few) is much smarter than in maternity pants or any type of maternity clothing. The only thing is – now I’m back...

The Day I Became ‘Jeppson’

Just a day before Philip and I flew back to Bulgaria – guess what – we got married. Yes, I’m officially a Jeppson and luckily a month later nothing feels weird or different. All the stereotypical warnings that a potential marriage could change our relationship and make us feel chained to each other is nothing but a massive exaggeration. I still can’t help but call him my ‘boyfriend’, even though he is officially my ‘husband’ – is it because I can’t accept that I’m THAT grown up? Maybe. Actually, I was hesitating whether to share photos from our day, because it was OUR day. We had only one witness from Philip’s side and noone else with us. We didn’t feel like being with...

The Countdown Has Begun: 7 Weeks Left

It feels like yesterday when I found out I was pregnant and here we are only 7 weeks before finally saying ‘Hi’ to Sofia-Malou and giving her a thousand kisses. Looking back I have to admit – it’s been a crazy, mind-blowing journey with me finding it incredibly difficult to accept that new life’s been growing inside me (hence my ongoing hyperactivity over the last 8 months that now I’m finally trying to tone down). But beside the overwhelming joy that the thought of becoming a mother has brought me, it’s also made me quite anxious. I’ve spent a great deal of time envisioning Philip’s and I mutual life after becoming parents, with my mind bombarding me with questions like ‘Are we ever gonna be the same?’,...
   

And The Winner Of My Latest ‘hvisk’ Giveaway Is..

Hey guys, I hope you’re all well and have had a marvellous summer so far. After spending some time in the city, Philip and I are finally in the mountains ready for some rest. But before I go ‘offline’ there is something to announce – the winner of the giveaway I did in collaboration with the danish jewellery brand ‘hvisk‘. The lucky one is you, Mariya Gonkova! Congratulations and I really hope your jewellery by ‘hvisk‘ also quickly becomes a staple part of your outfit. Now I’m off to jump in the swimming pool so for now… xoxo A. Indlæg er sponsoreret

My Surprise Baby Shower

Yesterday I received the surprise of my life! All of my favourite girls/women gathered together to throw me a baby shower! Something that in the country I come from – Bulgaria – is not really popular… All I could say is that I had a blast and I still can’t believe how thoughtful they were! It turns out that Philip  gave them the cheeky idea (as in Denmark people people do that quite often) and then my mom and the girls took it all in their hands and turned our garden into a girl’s paradise! I can’t wait to share with you the (pinkish) photos from yesterday. Stay tuned for that. And I’m off to enjoy a sunny day in...

HVISK GIVEAWAY

Today is big day for me as in a few hours I will be officially answering to a different surname! Crazy, eh!? I’m just about to start getting ready, but before that, to mark the special occasion, I’ve prepared a little something for you too. Do you remember what my current favourite jewellery is that I’m also going to wear today? It’s my new golden necklace by the danish jewellery brand Hvisk with mine and Philip’s first letters handing on it (here). Now you have the chance to sport a similar piece or any other from Hvisk’s website. The only thing you need to do is leave a comment below with a link to the piece you would like to win, briefly explaining why. The winner will be...
   

Life Lately and Why I Chose To Write in English

It’s an exciting week guys! Yesterday I had one of my last shifts at the Body Shop, while a few days ago I passed my Danish exam and now I officially have the time to sit back and reflect. But actually before I can do that and enjoy my time off there are a couple of things more that lie ahead … Tomorrow is the day I kiss the singlehood goodbye (okay, we all know that I’m VERY in a relationship with Philip) but as of tomorrow when I’m completing documents I will no longer cross the single box. People keep on asking me whether I feel anxious, scared and all… but why would I be? For me it’s just...

Synergy of Love Engraved by Hvisk

And no. These two letters aren’t an abbreviation that stands for my name, but signify the love of two people, which sparked a few months back in the most unexpected and bizarre way, and continues to grow with every passing day. A week from today my surname won’t even start with the cheeky ‘Pepe’. If only anyone had ever told me how much my life would change in less than a year; that I’d meet a person who makes me feel home and be already expecting a cute little one. People raise an eyebrow when they hear our story, spitefully remarking that we don’t know each other enough, which (they would keep on going) is never a good sign ....

Now It’s Getting Real: Braxton Hicks Contractions

Despite my not so pregnancy-flattering outfits (subconsciously I’m still doing my best to hide that bump) in reality things are getting much more real with every passing second. My best friend gave birth a few days ago to a beautiful girl – Zarina. I know that this doesn’t have a lot to do with my pregnancy, but on second thought it does. She got pregnant a few months before me and the fact that she’s already a mother makes me realise that it won’t be long until we spend countless of hours on the phone discussing topics like ‘changing diapers’. The same two girls that a year ago were strolling down the streets of Copenhagen having no clue where life was...
