Ønsker jer en god tirsdag! Jeg kan næsten ikke overskue at skrive det, men herhjemme er vi syge (igen). Eller Saxo er. Han hoster noget så skrækkeligt, og det går jo selvfølgelig ud over nattesøvnen. Så alle er trætte og jeg tjekker hurtigt ud igen : ) xx

I det grønne

Jeg trodsede sygdom idag og begav mig ud på en lille trilletur sammen med Saxo og min søster. Vejret har jo været helt fantastisk, og desuden havde min kæreste tømmermænd, så jeg tænkte jeg ville være den gode kæreste og lade ham sove så længe han havde lyst til. Det gav i øvrigt pote, for lige nu står han og kokkererer mig hjemmelavet pizza i køkkenet. Skønt! : )

Saxo sover nu og har gjort det siden kl 19. Putningen foregår stadig ved at jeg ammer ham i søvn og derefter lægger ham ned i sin egen seng, hvor han sover videre. Det er let og smertefrit, men jeg saaaavner at jeg ikke er den eneste som kan putte. Vi har prøvet nogle gange nu, at lade min kæreste overtage, og det ender i skrig og skrål, og ingen af os kan rigtig holde til det. Men det bliver vi nødt til snart. Jeg kan ikke mere. Jeg savner at kunne tage ud om aftenen, uden at have dårlig samvittighed over at ødelægge både min kæreste og Saxos aften. Phew! Jeg føler vi er nået til den første rigtige udfordring i forældreskabet – og lur mig om det ikke bare fortsætter og fortsætter, altså med flere og andre udfordringer. Helt seriøst, at have et spædbarn er piece of cake i forhold til at have en på snart 9 mdr ! : )
Tænk, jeg havde sådan håbet, at min sundhedsplejerske ved sidste besøg kunne komme med en plan for hvordan vi skulle gribe det an, men det viser sig, at hun er mor til en dreng på 14 måneder, og står i præcis samme situation som os. Argh! Ikke meget hjælp at hente der.

Anyway, her er lidt billeder fra en dejlig, dejlig dag i det grønne:

Har I haft en god dag??
Nu er pizzaen klar, så jeg vil løbe igen xx

When you need some magic in your life

Hope you?re having a wonderful monday! If you missed yesterday?s post, then you may not know who I am, the guest blogger over the weekend here at Emili?s lovely blog. I?m a Swedish 24-year old landscape architecture student that has an internship here in Copenhagen for a year. When, I?m not working, I?m busy with my website SPIN, where I share interviews with inspiring people and their businesses.

Yesterday, I was writing about discovering your own city to find new interesting and inspiring places. Today, I?m going to share some favourite places from a city that is perfect for a weekend away ? when you feel it?s time to get some new inspiration. The place I?m thinking of is the capital of Scotland ? Edinburgh. The beautiful and friendly city has been my home for three years. If I only had one word to describe Edinburgh with, I would choose the word magical. If you need some magic in your life, this is the place to go to.

Since 7 is a magical number, I have selected 7 reasons why Edinburgh is a magical city;

The city has a castle on a hill.

There?s something special with the light in this city ? it?s just amazing. It?s like it?s bright and subtle at the same time.

Outside the fantastic Gallery of Modern Art, the landscape architect Charles Jencks has made this wonderful land art sculpture.

The city has it?s own secret pathways. Instead of going along busy streets to go to the Gallery of Modern Art, take the wonderful path along Water of Leith instead.

thefog
In the autumn, there is often a fog across the park the Meadows that makes the city look even more mysterious. Although, sometimes, the fog is instead created by all the barbequing students?

 photo Lovecrumbs.jpg
The coffee and the cafés. When I was living in Istanbul, it took me such a long time to find a café with really good coffee. In Edinburgh, I know where to go to get that really good cappuccino. Brew Lab, Freemans and Lovecrumbs are the places to hang out at in the city. The café Lovecrumbs is actually started by two inspiring women ? Rachel and Hollie. If you want to read more about them you should check out the interview that I have made with them at SPIN here.

 photo Arthursseat.jpg
Edinburgh has it?s own mountain (Arthur?s seat) in the middle of the city. How could this not create a magical atmosphere?

This is all for me now, thank you so much Emili for letting me be guest blogging here! If you want to read some more interviews, check out SPIN here
Have a wonderful monday everyone!

Inspiring places at Enghave plads in Copenhagen

 photo introphoto.jpg

While Emili is in London, I?ve got the exciting opportunity to be the guest blogger here at her lovely blog! When I?m not writing here, I?m busy with my own project SPIN, a website (and now also a blog!) with interviews with people and their own businesses. The idea is that these hopefully will spin the inspiration further and give some encouragement to people that want to start up their own projects and businesses.
But now to Copenhagen, the city that I have just moved to! I live with my boyfriend (who?s Danish) in Vesterbro. I?m from Sweden, but have mostly been living in Edinburgh the last years, although, I spent last semester in Istanbul. Now I?m 24 years old, and have an internship at a Landscape Architecture firm here in Copenhagen.

While I?ve been living in different cities I have noticed that many people often know their own cities very well ? but at the same time they don?t. Not many of us have time to just stroll around in different neighbourhoods while discovering new places in our own city. It?s a shame, since it?s one of the best things to do!

So in this post I want to encourage all of you to discover your own city! To find new streets, cafés and much more. Many of my friends that don?t live here at Vesterbro, have told me that they usually don?t spend so much time here. Therefore, I thought that I could share some wonderful places from Enghave plads, where is close to my home I live in. It has a great sense of community and lots of small and inspiring shops and cafés. I hope these will not only inspire you to visit the area around Enghave plads, if you haven?t already been here, but also to discover other areas ? in Copenhagen or somewhere else. You never know what treasures you will find! So, let me introduce you to some of my favorites here;

Brød

The place to go to if you want delicious cinnamon buns, bread and more. In the reflection in the window you get a glimpse of one of many art works along the green fence to the construction site for the metro station. The small but cosy bakery is always busy in the mornings and in the weekends. I love the smell of freshly baked bread when I pass by Brød on my way to work in the mornings.

Cool & Cosy

This is the shop that has all the things that you are craving for at the moment when it comes to decoration for your home. We bought our fig tree and some lovely pots here. It?s also a great place to buy your own composed bouquet here. Since the woman that owns the shop is such a warm and lovely person, you kind of want to have an excuse to come by here, just to get to chat with her for a bit on your Saturday walk.

Enghave café

There are many cafés in this neighbourhood but this is one of my favourites. The coffee is great and I love the darker colour scheme they have used in their decoration. Even the paper cups for coffee have such a lovely dark and dim colour. Oh, too late for coffee? Well then, enjoy a beer in the evening sun now in the autumn across the street, at café Snork.

The streets
 photo street1-1.jpg photo thestreet2.jpg

I love when art and trees take over some spaces in our cities (after all, I?m a landscape architecture student?). Don?t you think some more one-way streets should have big trees like this in the middle?

All places are located at Enghave Plads or Dybbølsgade except the street tree and the painting on the wall. These you?ll have to discover on your own;)
