Last weekend my friend, J, and I went to my parents place, relaxing and compensating for not having seen each other much the past few months. So we relaxed, talked, walked by the country side and took a lot of pictures.
It’s cold, it’s wet, and it mostly means catching the flue, but OMG how I love autumn! I love how it’s time for large sweaters, time for boots, but more than anything I love that it’s time for colors.
There’s truly nothing more beautiful than the trees changing colors. When the world around me is a splash of green, yellow and red. When the leaves take to the ground. It’s my favorite time of year. October mostly, cause in Denmark the cold sets in quickly enough for the colors to disappear whit in November. So October, this little gallery is in your honor.

I really am gonna miss this lovely serenade when winter sets in…
Itøs amazing how quickly time fly by! It’s been almost a month since my last post, but it feels like only a couple a days ago. I’m starting to feel I can’t keep up…
A lot has happened since then though. I’ve finished our dining table, so we finally got one again. And I’ve taken up sewing again, right now making a bag for my lovely new drawing pad, a Wacom Bamboo – I’m so excited to finally have one. Can’t wait to have time, to really getting good at drawing with it. And Friday next week it’s time for turning in my portfolio at school, showing a 15 styles collection, inspired by Toulouse-Lautrecs fantastic drawing of “La Clownesse”. I’m the biggest fan on Toulouse-Lautrec. His drawings and lithographs are magnificent and his story really is spectacular. If you don’t know him, he was a Montmartre painter in the 1880-1910′s, spending a lot of time at bars and pleasure houses, mainly drawing prostitutes and drunkards. His paintings are both really sad and fun, but altogether beautiful. Back to the portfolio – I’m looking forward to turn it in, there’s something special about showing of your first collection, though only on paper. And last, but not least, I’ve started as a writer for the danish online mens fashion magazine “Modesektionen.dk (The Fashionsection, red.), wuhuuuu. I love to write, so I’m SO excited that I get to do it like that.
I haven’t had much time to take pictures the past few weeks, but this weekend I’ll go visit my parents at the countryside, and hopefully I’ll have time for a walk through the forest. It’s fantastic this time of year, all red and yellow. So no pictures I’ve taken myself today. However I want to share with you, my favorite Toulouse-Lautrec picture with you – La Clownesse.
I promise to post some of my own pics soon. Until then, take care…
It’s saturday night, I’ve got a sprained Ankle, therefore spending the night on my couch. And so to keep me entertained B and I decided to put on the best animated movie ever - How to train your dragon!! I love that movie!!! I have only one bad thing to say about it : why don’t I have a dragon??!!
Well the movie finished and I’m about to make a collection lineup, but I thought I’d better post some new IG-pics before doing so.
Hope you have a lovely evening out there
I have the most adorable two cats, Tarzan and Moby. You can’t take them apart, though both being males and very different from one another. Tarzan is this crossbred, athletic, intelligent red cat, who scares of everything though loving attention. Moby is a huge Main Coon cat, constantly on a diet that never seems to work, lazy as a f…. and without any brain activity, with whom you can do whatever you like and who’s only meaning in life is staying close to Tarzan.
Living two adults and two large cats in only 43 square meters is the recipe for disaster, but luckily they love each others company and cannot be without each others – I cannot even take one cat to the vet without bringing the other as well.
Them being my babes means me taking TOO many pictures of them. So I’ve gathered some recently taken lazy-pics of them. If I’ll ever end up an old unmarried lady, I’ll be known as crazy-cat-lady to be sure
Danish: Jeg har sødeste to katte, Tarzan og Moby. Man kan simpelthen ikke skille dem ad, selvom de begge er hankatte og meget forskellige af sind. Tarzan er et gadekryds, en atletisk, intelligent rød kat, som bliver skræmt af ingenting men elsker opmærksomhed. Moby er en kæmpe Main Coon kat, konstant på diæt som aldrig virker, doven som bare pokker og uden nogen videre hjerneaktivitet, med hvem du kan gøre som det passer dig, og hvis eneste mening med livet er at være tæt på Tarzan.
At bo to voksne mennesker og to store katte på 43 m2 er opskriften på katastrofe, men heldigvis elsker kattene hinanden, og kan ikke leve uden hinanden – jeg kan ikke engang tage den ene kat til dyrlægen uden den anden.
De er mine babyer, så jeg tager ALT for mange billeder af dem. Så derfor har jeg samlet de seneste dovne-billeder af dem. HVis jeg nogen sinde ender om en gammel ugift kvinde, vil jeg helt sikkert blive kendt som den skøre kattedame
Oh…. My…. God…. (red. Janice style)! Time run fast. I can hardly keep up these past weeks. It’s been ages since my last post, only because I’ve been so busy! But I think it’s time for some more IG pics on the blog.
The pics where taken on Bali a few years back, but I’ve only recently posted them on Instagram. I hope you’ll enjoy them.

I have the best memories from my almost 4 weeks on Bali with boyfriend B and our friend C. We travelled around Bali and Lemboghan, ran down a volcano, the boys dived with sea turtles, I snorkeled though being sooooo afraid of fish (stupid, I know, but I really don’t like them), hiked through rice fields, felt a monkeys love on my shoulder and got tattoos the day before flying home. Bali I miss you.
Danish: Hold nu op hvor går tiden stærkt. De sidste par uger er gået så stærkt at jeg dårligt kan følge med længere. Det er alt for længe siden jeg sidst har skrevet på bloggen, simpelthen fordi jeg har haft så travlt. Men nu er det på tide med nogle flere IG billeder.
Billderne er taget for 2 år siden på Bali, men det er først for nyligt at jeg har redigeret dem og posted dem på Instagram. Jeg håber I kan lide dem.
Det første billede er taget på vej ud for at snorklede/dykke. Skyerne stod højt over Bali den formiddag. Det næste er taget ved solnedgang på stranden i Lovina, og det tredje er taget ved solopgang næste morgen, på vej ud for at se delfiner.
Jeg har de bedste minder fra mine små 4 uger på Bali. Jeg rejse rundt sammen med B og vores ven C, løb ned af vulkan, drengene dykkede mens jeg snorklede (trods min mega angst for fisk – dumt, I know, men kan virkelig ikke lide dem), vandrede i rismarker, havde en kærlig abe på skulderen og blev tatoveret dagen inden vi skulle flyve hjem igen. Bali jeg savner dig!
