Summer wedding outfit

Remember our Dream Outfit: Summer Wedding? We have finally made it to the wedding, and even though we didn't get to buy that gorgeous Acne blue dress (sold out everywhere), we found something else, truly sunny and summery for this lovely, happy occasion. And it worked brilliantly with our dark-blue chic, soft Naledi Copenhagen clutch. What's your favourite festive outfit this summer? Have a beautiful week!

Summer nails

What are your favourite summer nail polishes? We have tried quite a few this season, and picked up the top five, based on their colours, ease of application, the brush, durability (the latter is exceptional with Sally Hansen's products - thank you Natalochka and Pasha), and overall polish. Depending on the mood and the occasion, we are either going for lovely pastels like our favourite Sally Hansen's Shell We Dance and OPI Makes Men Blush, or bright and zesty berries and corals: & Other Stories Satin Magenta and Sally Hansen's Kook-A-Mango which works so well with a bit of a tan. And if we are in a mood for something darker, our first choice is a chic and sophisticated Chanel's Blue Boy. What are your recommendations for the summer season? Have a fantastic weekend!

Summertime in the city

With such perfect weather in Copenhagen this week, there is nothing better than sipping chilled rose or sparkling wine somewhere outside in the sun. We very much enjoyed the atmosphere, Cremant, mini-burgers, goat cheese salad, homemade fries and especially the creme brulee, at the recently opened restaurant Ravage on Kongens Nytorv, right between Fiat and Geist restaurants. Perfect for people watching, too. 
And if you are craving sushi, then go no further than Selfish in Norrebro, on Elmegade: in our humble opinion, THE best, most fresh, delicious and top quality sushi tasted in Copenhagen. 
Enjoy your summer and let us know what are your favourite summer places in the city!

Summer holidays: Croatia

We are finally on vacation! Enjoying everything that summer has to offer in beautiful, sunny Croatia. Have you been there yet? Whether you are into sailing, hiking, dining and wining, history, there is something for everyone in Croatia. Our list of must-see places includes the breathtakingly beautiful national park of Plitvice with the most amazingly blue, crystal clear lakes, Krka waterfalls (you can swim in them!), sailing to the otherworldly Kornati islands, sightseeing in the cities of Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar and Trogir, and partying on Hvar and Pag islands. When you fly back home, make sure to stock up on the most delicious croatian prsut and world famous Paski Sir (cheese from the island of Pag). Have a fantastic summer !

Laduree macarons

Over last few business trips to Paris, we have become addicted to the freshest, melt-in-your-mouth tiny pieces of heaven called Laduree macaroons. If you are in London or Berlin, you have a chance to taste these beauties anytime of the year, and for the rest of us, well, we always have Paris CDG airport. The macaroons are so fresh, they need to be eaten within 48 hours. We are now looking for just the perfect recipe to try make these at home - stay tuned!
