Happy New Year!

One New Year's Eve ritual is the "Dinner for One". I actually used to watch it together with my grandpa and it's a nice memory...

...and now me and the poker girls are off for champagne and "Krapfen" with friends! 
Happy New Year!

Dear Santa...

a little wishlist to Santa Claus... including this gorgeous pin-up dress by Bernie Dexter with cherry prints. 
The earrings and cute hats are made by Frollein von Sofa and the red blazer and jumpsuit are by Max&Co and fit perfect in the colour theme.
For the ones who prefer it less bright red I found a nice combination of purple and green and leopard patterns. The clothes and shoes are again from Max&Co. The leopard hat by Frollein von Sofa and the lace leggins by Malene Birger.
Let's see, if I was a good girl!

Copenhagen favourites

Regarding Scandinavian Design Denmark and Finland are my favourite countries, because of their elegance and creativity. 
I was just on a little holiday in Copenhagen and here are my favourite designers.

by Malene Birger
For clothing, I liked Malene Birger with a very feminine and elegant collection. I have bought a striped shirt there which somehow reminded me of Coco Chanel. I have seen couple of beautiful dresses in 20's style with sequins and pearls, a lot of lace and simple colour contrasts in black and white.

Also elegant, but with a hint of ethno touch, are the clothes from Munthe plus Simonsen, which also have a home collection with nice accessoires and pillows. 
But unfortunately the bag is never big enough!

Norman Copenhagen
Then there are a lot of Danish furniture classics. One big name in architecture and design is Arne Jacobsen who was very active in the 60s and who is famous for his chairs. 
But I also especially like Muuto Design and Norman Copenhagen for their playfull modern design. I actually have one of the lamps in the picture in my living room.

something to melt away

Sometime there are cover songs which are better than the original: "Bad Romance" by 30 Seconds To Mars.

...and I just had this style image in my mind, girl with a hat and red lipstick...
