We do, we really do. Anything else would be a lie. Life is so damn unfair sometimes and often we are the only ones who can pick ourselves up. We have our friends, our family or whatever distractions we can come up with but in the end we have to set our mind to forget the pain and work on the issues and simply never throw the towel in the ring. Whatever issue we have, whatever makes us sad or angry we should never be afraid of crying or showing our emotions - or be embarrassed. I think it is all about finding the things that makes you happy when you are down. To me it is dancing, singing, working out, playing the piano and writing. I force myself to do it even though I might not want it in that particular situation. I know that I am better at distracting myself than to actually deal with the issues which can be really destroying. When there are no more distractions left I am left with only my thoughts and worries and then they keep growing. I think we are all so influenced by everybody's expectations to us and the society definitely keeps pressuring us in the direction of "normal", "blending in" and the very discussed "trends". But why do we have to blend in when we can stand out? What is normal? And who defines the trends and decides what we should wear, eat and where we should live? Who got the power? We do. Don't blend in, don't be normal and create your own trends. I try to follow that everyday but we all go through personal stuff that for a natural amount of time makes us weak. The key thing that we need to think about is that we are allowed to not live a perfect life and not what the media shows us and blows completely out of proportions. It's okay to be sad, to cry or be angry. The most important thing is that we maintain to be strong, we forget what everyone else think of us and we strive to be the best version of ourselves always. What do you do to pick yourself up when you are down?

Over and out,

When I turned 19 I was so lucky to have two of the most important people there with me and that is of course Y and Emma. Emma came all the way from Denmark to see me on my birthday and I was absolutely thrilled! Y took us out and all of us had drinks at Angelica's in Leeds before having sushi. I got so spoiled with presents, love and such an amazing night that I will always remember. Not too long ago Y surprised me by picking me up from work, driving to Leeds and taking me to Gauchos in Leeds which is the best place I have been in England so far. I was wearing the dress on the first picture and it was so romantic and well planned. These memories will forever make me happy and I hope to always be a part of those peoples lives.

God I am drooling when I look at these pictures. I love fine dining and going out with the girls or Y. These pictures are from Copenhagen in Denmark so if you're planning a trip to my home town you need to read this! First pictures is from Helsingoer Gods, second picture from Casa&Co, third picture is from Limone, fourth picture from Lucky Sushi and last but not least the fifth picture is from the very price friendly cafe Dalle Valle. Copenhagen is an expensive place to live so I would recommend researching before going out ๐Ÿ˜œ

1. MY FAVOURITE DISH...
is sushi and I would eat it every day for this rest of my life if I could. Unfortunately it is well expensive and has a lot of calories in it but I would love to have sushi for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day omg lol.

2. MY DREAM OUTFIT....
is a long red dress with a deep v-cut, black Louboutin heels and a Valentino handbag. Say no more!

3. MY FASHION AND BEAUTY GURU...
is definitely Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian. Their style, bodies and how they do their makeup is such a big inspiration to me and I love following their lives on social media. KUWTK is so my favourite tv-show too hahah.

4. IN 10 YEARS I AM...
living in a beautiful house, working hard, eating good and surrounding myself with people I love and who loves me unconditionally. I'm to old now to surround myself with people who are selfish and doesn't want the best for me. If everything goes after the plan I am married and has kids with Y too! 

5. THREE YEARS AGO.....
I was in college studying biotechnology and working part time. It was hard but I would never go back and change that cause in college I got so close with my now very best friend Emma who I love and adore so amazingly much.

Yes, I am actually ๐Ÿ˜œ When you meet new people a lot of them asks "Oh so what are you doing as a job?" and that is a natural way of getting to know each other but for some reason when people ask me what I am doing for a living and I tell them, they don't seem to understand what excatly it is that I am doing and how I am finding any pleasure in it. I work in the rental business and for the sake of both safety and privacy I am not going to mention the name of the company. Basically what I am doing is vehicle reservations management. I make sure that the customers get the right cars, deal with bookings, suppliers and make sure that the KPI's are being reached. It is an office job but the dynamic atmosphere, the people and the customers makes it an exiting job full of oppurtunities and great experience to gain if you want to work for it. I enjoy selling and fighting to go that extra mile for the customer and I find cars very interesting. I don't think that many girls are into that particular kind of job and we don't have a lot women in the office either but ever since I was little we have had nice cars, a lot of people in my family are in the car business either they own a car company or have a chief position in the vehicle rental business. I guess it runs through my veins and speed is something that always makes my adrenalin pump. I love fast cars but I definitely have a weakness for hatchbacks/SUV's. Not a lot of people look at me and think that I work in a business that deals with cars cause they expect that that is something that men should do but I enjoy it a lot. Not all women can be found working in a salon or a clothing store. The customer service aspect in it is important to me cause the main thing that drives me (lol) is to make a difference and to create something big. You can discuss how a booking of a Mercedes E-class creates something big or makes a difference, but the smiles I see and hear and the satisfaction I can tell people have when I do my job - that is priceless. Just like the feeling I get inside when I post on the blog and you guys read and like what I do. I haven't really been writing a lot about my life, my interests and my hobbies on the blog but I will make sure that more personal posts will come. I hope you will enjoy!

One of my most asked questions is always how I keep my hair so thick, shiny and healthy. I often get asked about my color too. Normally I have almost black hair - it is extremely dark but I have dyed it for a decent amount of years now. Basically I just get a mix of blonde and caramel color in it. On a lot of beauty blogs I have seen the girls eating different vitamins to keep their hair healthy and I am sure that works but personally I have never used anything like that. My "secret" is that I first of all never use conditioner during the weekdays. Only 1 time a week and when I do use it I always put conditioner before my shampoo. You have to go with good shampoo and conditioner. I would rather pay a bit more for my products and then get a better result. Another thing that I basically never do besides from when I am in a rush is to dry my hair with a hair dryer. If I use any kind of heat on my hair I then use my Revlon Uniq 10in1 treatment spray with coconut. I always keep loads in stock but I know you can get it for ยฃ14,99 on for example SallyExpress. When I use cold or medium cold water when I wash my hair it always gets frizzy. I then use hot water (not burning myself though lol) and letting it dry in a towel afterwards. The hairbrush you use is really important and I would recommend you to use a hairbrush like the ones from The Wet Brush. They are not so hard on your hair and are very affordable too. Win win ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ I am running a little experiment on my own hair and will let my own hair color grow out - simply because I haven't seen it for years. My hair grows very fast so hopefully this summer I will be able to see it fully. Let me know if you have any special tips for your hair or if you want to see more of these kinds of posts. Have a lovely day!

Yesterday when Y and I were out for a walk in Ilkley Moor as mentioned here we climbed some huge rocks and a lot of the big rocks were engraved with couple's names, love quotes etc. While I was looking at the amazing view and not paying attention to what Y was doing all of a sudden he asked THE question "Marry me?" and my heart literally stopped beating for a second. I have always wanted to get engaged at a young age and Y knows that. It is no secret that we have talked many times about our future and all the things we want to accomplish together in life. Marriage is definitely one of them. I have never wanted a big princess wedding with a fluffy dress and my style is more minimalistic and quite personal so I have always imagined me getting married in a church and have a private ceremony at a beautiful location afterwards. When Y asked that question and I felt my heart stopped beating I smiled all over my face, looked at him and said "Really?!" in the most high-pitched-excited voice ever. I looked at Y and he smiled. It was such a perfect place to ask that question and I can't imagine spending my life with anyone else. Next I found out that Y was simply just reading out loud what was engraved in one of the giant rocks and we immediately just started laughing. Y has told me a lot of times that he has the perfect plan for it and I don't doubt that one second. I didn't get engaged this time but who knows what the future will bring?

Often I get a lot of questions on both my IG and Facebook about how it is to move to a different country and how you do it. For me, it wasn't very well planned but it turned out to be perfect. I would say that physically it isn't a problem at all but mentally it is a different thing. In Denmark I lived with my sister and my mum and I miss them. I've lived and worked in another country before which I will blog about soon but that was only for 3 months and they knew that I was coming back. Now I am permanently living in England with a serious job and big plans for the future. I know they miss me too but I think that for them it is all about how I feel. If I love it, which I do, then it is not that hard for them. But it went so fast and suddenly my flight ticket was booked and the thought of me moving so far away was scary. England is a country which in many cases looks like Denmark. They both have the monarchy and of course the democracy for example. I would say that England has an old roman country-style (the architecture) when compared to Denmark it is very different. Denmark has a more romantic but minimalistic architecture-style in my opinion. In England you see loads of attached houses when in Denmark they have a majority of detached houses which is completely normal over there. The main thing that you have to think about when you move to another country is to straight away get all the paperwork done. In England, as mentioned in my first blog post, you have to get a NI-number and have a work permission. You want to switch mobile company too - otherwise you will get a massive bill from your mobile company from home - but that is obvious. Make sure that you get to know the different areas surrounding you. Leave your car home for the first 2 weeks and use the public transport. You see different kinds of people and you know the different regions and cities if you choose that. And the majority of bus drivers in England are so nice and polite. The busses are never crowded and over-heated and to just sit and look out of the windows and relax before work is for me really nice! If you are like me and choses to move to a cold (!!) country, then for you own sake bring warm clothes. I am terrible at dressing in the winter and I of course brought loads of nice and fashionable clothes but it is really not warm clothes ๐Ÿ˜œ If you are moving to England then you probably already know English very good like me but my advice would definitely be that if you don't, then sign up for English classes so you learn to communicate with everyone. It happens a lot over here that you meet and talk to people who has strange accents because many regions of this country talk with different accents. It is still hard for me to understand some people but that is just a matter of time. Are you moving to a foreign country or do you already live abroad? Leave a comment below, I would love to hear your story!

There is something extremely potent, powerful and cleansing about getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The air smells sweeter, the sun burns brighter, the colors seem more vivid, and time almost seems to stand still. Whether weโ€™re hiking, kayaking, watching wildlife or just enjoying a quiet picnic, thereโ€™s something about unspoiled nature that simply soothes our soul. Today, Y took us to an amazing place in Ilkley Moor, just about 20miles away from Leeds. Nature has a very special place in my heart and both Y and I believe that no one should interfere with nature and it's powers. I can't help but feel so relaxed and in the very right state of mind when I go to places like this. I get a whole new energy and calm feeling inside. We walked for about an hour or so and then we went to "The Cow & Calf" to get a cappuccino and a hot chocolate. Doing stuff like this is what I live for. I feel privileged every single day that I have the opportunity to discover and explore the nature and the world so often. I know this is something that we both will make sure to pass on to our kids one day. I hope that they will use the nature as well and have special places to go so they can think, refresh their mind and most importantly find peace in when work, socialising and everyone's expectations are a bit too overwhelming. We are so privileged to have these hidden gems outside of the city to visit. In today's society with technology evolving so much, and expansion going on around us it's a blessing to have such places. That's one of the reasons that more and more people are deciding to go traveling around the world. In order to see the beautiful wildlife, nature, architecture and much more before it is taken away from us by us, or caged and crammed into a museum or zoo, to make more room for the pursuit of science and evolution. Of course I had to shoot some pictures of it and I brought my current camera Canon 600D which I can highly recommend. Y is so my muse and this was a chance to get two of the greatest things in my world in one picture. This is a place that I will definitely go back to and I am imagining a perfect summer night, watching the sun go down and drinking good wine here. Let me know if you guys have any "must see" attractions in the comments below!

One of the many things I absolutely adore is women with pretty nails. It does so much and it looks so exclusive and fine with the nails done. I have to look for the best nail clinic here in Leeds and ASAP get mine done! These beauties on the pictures was made in Fields in Copenhagen and I got them done on a regular basis. Whenever I find the best nail clinic in Leeds I think I'm gonna go with a sexy red color or matte black! My ring is from the Danish brand DyrbergKern, watch from Marc Jacobs and clutch from Decadent. What do you prefer on your nails?
