Yesterday I was working at school on the bachelor project and then I met up with @annelinneaholm for a short meeting and catch up session at Torvehallerne. We discussed some exciting things that will be happening with Nouw! I am so excited to tell you guys more, but all in good time. Afterwards we went to the ImpressionPR press day at Illum Rooftop, at RossoPomodoro. It was so nice seeing all the girls after a busy few weeks. And of course the food was OMG so good! I am also extremely excited about Terese and Christina getting MariaNila products in their client portfolio! I got some purple hair colouring shampoo so will try it out before going to Lund for a festival this weekend! The good thing about not being at school is that I don't need to worry about looking extremely presentable anymore haha. I am super excited to try out all the products now!
I spent the weekend in Helsinki with Sandra and a bunch of other Scandinavian bloggers. It was really intense but so much fun! We were staying at the Helsinki Hilton Standard, which was right in the harbour and really close to the Helsinki cathedral, so we could go there to take pics with the girls. The first day Sandra did a shoot with Asus, and afterwards the Danish team went for dinner toLie Mi, super cool and hip Thai restaurant. The food there was so good, but afterwards we all crashed as we had to wake up at 5:30 in the morning to catch our flight to Helsinki. The next day we went to the "inspiraitonal day" event for bloggers and after that Kira took us to a cool restaurant in a market place in the centre of Helsinki. In the evening we went to the Blogger Inspirational Awards and afterwards for dinner to a cool place that is soon opening called Holiday and then to a club to party. We got to the hotel around 4:30 in the morning so we could only sleep one hour before the flight so I don't need to explain how tired we were haha. But now I am happy to be back in DK and excited for future fun projects! Finland was awesome and everyone was so nice there! Hope to go back soon!
Shoot for ASUS- the team was really nice and the video looks awesome
Lie Mi- the food was great and the company was amazing! I got stir fried noodles with beef! Some of the guys got duck tacos and said they were some of the best they ever had
Cool glass elevators in the hotel- it was hilarious trying to catch a good picture because someone was constantly calling it haha.
The Awards- Blogger babes Fraja, Josefine, Sandra, Isabella and Marie.
Holiday- amazing food with the Finnish bloggers, such nice company everyone was so sweet!
I am back in Copenhagen now. It was a tough day, I didn't have breakfast in Dublin and because of the time difference I arrived home hungry as hell at 2pm haha. No nice. Anyway I put together a food guide from some of the places we went to in Dublin. It is a little depressing. I went from eating like a god to exam food and frozen pizza. Need to push through this week and on Friday I can go to Helsinki! Anyway, hope this can be helpful if you decide to go to Dublin and need nice dinner places.
1. The Pig's Ear
First evening we went to The Pig's Ear. It is a really chic restaurant in the Dublin city centre with a view of the Trinity College playing grounds. It had a very danish feel, really minimalistic furniture and it had a very spacious feel. The restaurant was awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2009 and has retained it since, including the most current 2016 edition of the Michelin Guide. I started with Roasted carrots with cream cheese, fried sourdough and dried marigold. The others had a green salad and Irish Salmon. The main course was as delicious as the starters. I had chicken with grilled leaks. I must say the menu was filled with attractive things- I could eat everything there! Unfortunately towards the end the light was bad so I didn't get good main course pictures.
2. The Winding Stair
The second dinner was at the Winding Stair, it is a cafe located above a bookshop overlooking the river Liffey. Also a very nicely furnished place with a lot of space and beautiful natural light. It has always been a popular place for artists and writers to meet and discuss their work. All the food was based on old fashion Irish meals and all the produce is sourced from the Island. We tried three starters, mozzarella, seafood chowder and potted dingle bay crab. For the main course I tried a rib eye steak, which I never get and I also had it rare, so it was a big experience for me- I think I have had steak once before this. I am more a burger person haha. All the food was really nice and we also tried some nice wine.
Today is my last day in Dublin. Leaving tomorrow early morning to catch a 9am flight. Yesterday we saw quite a bit of the city, we walked for hours. In the afternoon my dad and I met up with my godfather Ben and his dad Vincent and we went to churches: the Christ Church Cathedral, St. Patrick's and the Dublina. In the evening we went for dinner to the Pig's Ear, which I can highly recommend. Now we are going to get a proper Irish breakfast and then some more sightseeing. Yesterday we also went to
Bunsen burgers. The burgers were so good! My friend from Dublin recommended the place. It is so funny their menu is a business card and you can only choose between 2 burgers in 2sizes and 3 types of fries- makes it a lot easier to know what one wants haha.
Yesterday afternoon I finally arrived in Dublin. First my dad and I met one of our Irish partners for a quick meeting and then we took a taxi to our hotel. I have been to Dublin once before, but I was 13 so I don't really have any memories of the city. I was a little amused when I saw that my dad booked a hotel, which is in the middle of the biggest party district in Dublin, called Temple Bar. We were asking our taxi driver if there are any good bars around our hotel and he was just laughing. After we got settled in we went to get some dinner to San Lorenzo's - an Italian restaurant we just bumped into. I must say that Dublin is such a nice city! There were so many people outside, drinking beer and hanging out- I might consider traveling here more often haha! We are off to breakfast now and then we are meeting some of our friends who came to Dublin from New York!
