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...

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)...

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...
