Having a travel oriented Instagram profile generates a lot of questions where one of the main ones are: "How do you afford traveling that much?", "Isn't it expensive to go to such luxurious hotels?" - Some people immediately think "Oh that's because she's an influencer, she's getting it for free". But actually no! Most of my travels are paid out of own my pocket but having done it so much now I just know what to do to save money on traveling. Even on the more luxurious ones! In collaboration with Secret Escapes, I have therefore created this list of 3 my best tips to save money on luxury travels!Read More
So, I figured it was in its place to provide a little itinerary for the Faroe Islands. A: Because it's pretty necessary hence the very sparse info about this beautiful place! And B: Because I like making these kinds of posts that answer some of the same questions I have myself before I go to a new place.Read More
So, one of the things I actually spend a lot of time on was to figure out what to pack for the Faroe Islands. And here post our Faroe Islands trip, I cannot highlight enough the importance of bringing a rain coat. Seriously guys, my rain coat from RAINS that Stylepit was so kind to sponsor was a life saver! Not only is is stylish (important for an old fashion blogger like me, it also is made in a super light weight material which is nice when you are hiking. And when the weather goes from raining cats and dogs to be sunny and clear.Read More
It's been a while since I posted here last time and honestly, it's been killing me! July has been a weird month. It's been the first month in ages where Mark and I haven't traveled. I thought that meant I would be able to relax and focus on this blog. But as you can see it has been dead silent here! The reasons are many and pretty legit but on the other hand... When you proclaim to be a full-time influencer you really shouldn't neglect your blog. Or should you? You see, this question actually leads me to one of the many reasons to why July has been a bit silent.
we were lucky enough to be there during the famous Sant Joan Festival which is a yearly event that everyone in Spain is dying to go to! The festival lasts for a week and is all about drinking and partying while you watch the big horse parade. Even though we only were participating one of the days and it was so unique to experience a festival where the old traditions were mixed modern days traditions. But since we were traveling with a licor company we sure as heck wasn't lacking on the alcohol part haha! Because it was so hot we mostly drank the signature cocktail Ginger 43 which I will give you the recipe to further down.Read More
I guess what let you to this post is that you, like me, have an old Ikea sofa that you want to refresh? Or maybe you just want to get some living room inspiration... In any case look no further!
Up until last week I painfully had to look at my old “not-so-white-anymore”- Kivik sofa from Ikea. Why I got a white sofa in the first place is a good question, but I must admit it wasn’t only the stains on my “not-so-white-anymore”-Kivik sofa the bothered me. It was just as much the feeling of having the same sofa as everyone else. Being in my late 20’s I kinda want to show my friends and family that I have moved beyond 100% Ikea furnitures but at the same time it’s a pretty damn comfy sofa and new sofas are expensive.
You have an Instagram profile and maybe a blog or a Youtube Channel where you share your content with your growing audience. Great! You are an Influencer, and it's actually worth something. Maybe you even have been contacted by companies asking if you want to collaborate? Or maybe you are planning to approach the brand. And it's here where the question most influencers ask themself comes in: What should I charge as an Influencer?Read More
Welcome to my ultimate travel guide of Madeira - the hidden paradise Island in Europe! Very few places have left me in awe the way Madeira did and I think it deserves so much more coverage than it already has. I could write a novel only about how the nature changes around the Island: from tropical Hawaii-like landscapes to warm Faroe Island-like sceneries (and everything in between). Another thing is the perfect climate which I will get a lot more into in the travel guide below.Read More
Since a lot of you asked on Instagram about my dress (which is actually a shirt and a skirt) I thought it would be an idea to show you some more photos. It's from the danish brand Coster Copenhagen but their shop supports international delivery - their collection is so beautiful this season so I dare you to enter the webshop without buying anything ;)Read More
So, I really been looking forward to sharing this post with you! As many of you, I get most of my travel inspiration through Instagram. I follow other influencers like Doyoutravel and OhhCouture who takes amazing travel shots! But where I get most of my inspiration from, also in terms of how to "style" my photos, is from regramming sites likes @GirlsBornToTravel. GBTT was actually the first profile in that niche I started to follow, as it kept posting photos of different influencers like in dreamy scenarios and in beautiful locations around the world! It was THE site I had been looking for for such a long time! Perfect in any way...Read More
A quick hello from beautiful Madeira! Mark and I flew in yesterday and we are spending a whole week here (I am so excited because it's so lush and peaceful here!). Even though we got in yesterday I already have 6 really good reasons to why you need to visit Madeira RIGHT NOW! There will probably be more good reasons after a week here but I will make more blog posts - I promise! So, here we go...
How Cute is this Wall? I was out shooting photos with Mark some days ago in a rather rough part of town and suddenly, like a feminine contrast to the old brick walls with tons of graffiti, I saw this pastel colored wall! I obviously had to perpetuate my girly summer look there... I mean who can resist such an opportunity?
Last week was crazy as it was the week of the yearly Distortion here in Copenhagen. For those of you who aren't familiar with Distortion it is probably one of the largest street party festivals in the World! With more than 150.000 people partying in the streets and several venues with artists and DJs playing it is a crazy party that you don't see anywhere else in the world.The party lasts for 5 days and I went out 2 of those days. one of the days Mark & I brought all our camera equipment to capture some of the highlights from Distortion on Vesterbro which is one of the neighbourhoods you'll find Distortion .Read More
As I was telling you yesterday, I had spend hours figuring out what to give Mark for his birthday! Last year I gave such a meaningful gift, the same for christmas, so it gets harder and harder to impress that man haha! Our relationship is very much about exploring, but on the other hand I don't want to give holiday trips every time... It gets a bit easy, I think?
Anywho, in the end I decided to go for a holiday anyways. Mark has been talking about wanting to go to the Faroe Islands for quite some time and I must admit that after I went to Iceland last year, I very much liked the idea of going somewhere "similar". As we have some pretty big plans in the pipeline for this year, I had actually told him that we wouldn't have time for such a trip, so he had absolutely NO IDEA!
How's your week going to be? - Mine's pretty busy with Mark's 30th. birthday on Tuesday, Distortion Wednesday and Thursday and on Saturday we are hosting his birthday with 30+ guests! For those of you who doesn't know Distortion it's basically the world's biggest street party - It's nuts and if you don't believe me go to Youtube and watch some of the videos!
Last year I gave Mark a bike. He had just moved to Denmark, and didn't have a bike (as the only person in Copenhagen haha). Along came a long and personal letter where I told him about how much I liked him (we didn't say I Love You to each other yet ;)), and I had made a map with all the places in Copenhagen I wanted to take him now he had a bike. Everything was very thought through, so you can imagine how hard it was to top that!
Turkish Börek with spinach and feta is a must try if you want to experiment with food from the turkish cuisine! Not only is it easier to make than one would think, it's also a tasty snack that can be eaten all day long! Börek is made by layering several sheets of phyllo dough with a mixture of milk (or yogurt), eggs, and oil in between, and in the middle of those layers you place a filling of your choice (like this spinach and feta cheese). Börek can be found all over the middle east and balkan countries and each family has their own signature shape börek and filling.Read More
Working with influencers on a daily basis one of the most frequent questions I get is how to get more followers on Instagram! So, today I want to give my most valuable tips on how to start growing your following on Instagram. On Paper it's actually quite simple, but in reality time consuming, tricky and sometimes frustrating. Frustrating because Instagram has this thing called the Algorithm, which in short is what determines what shows up in peoples feed, how much engagement you get and in the end how fast you get more followers!
