The Apple Orchard - Frydenlund Frugtplantage {Copenhagen Pages}

One of our favourite things to do together as a family is going fruit picking. Last year we loved picking the blackberries, but this year we went all in and headed for one of the most amazing Apple Orchards I have ever been to. Armed with baskets, we were ready. The sun was shining and it was a stunning day. We tasted our way through rows and rows of apples and were quick to find our favourites.
7 kilos later we found out they also had ripe raspberries, and pears so the day was complete. We meant to cook an Applepie and share the recipe with you, but the apples went like - well hot cakes - and so did the rest of the fruit. I'm contemplating going back when it stops raining.

Black Fluted

Royal Copenhagen - an institution when it comes to amazing porcelain, has gone to the dark side, with their new collection of Black Fluted. We have seen it before in white and in blue, and now in beautiful  black, and I adore the moodiness and the beauty of the matte black porcelain.

Blog-hop

Hello everyone, hope you had a great weekend. I am doing a Blog-hop today, which is something I haven't done before. I thought it would be interesting to meet a few new people by hopping around the blogsphere, and also share some of the reasons why I have decided to create this little corner on the Web.

My lovely friend Carole nominated me. She is a fantastic French lady who lives in London with her family. Mademoiselle Poirot (her real name I might add) has a stunning blog, and she is brilliant at styling, baking, cooking and photography. I had the pleasure of meeting her twice - first time in London at MTB 2013, where we got on like a house on fire, and 2nd time on Blogtour NYC where we explored everything together.

Anyways - back to business, the blog-hop: I was asked to answer 4 questions, so here we go:

WHY DO I WRITE?

Why do I write? Well I was the official bookworm as a child, read when I was 5, and literally everything I could get my hands on. Spelling and languages were my thing (numbers my nemesis) and I loved the stories one could create. I wrote a lot. I always fancied being a journalist, but ended up in Drama-school instead. So after I quit my insurance job in 2012, I decided to share the things I found interesting on the internet, and started my blog. I write about the things I see, the places I've been, and things I think are interesting for my readers. The blog has also become my online portfolio. I adore my little corner on the web.



WHAT AM I WORKING ON?

Before I started the blog I took loads of pictures, but they were all neatly stored on the computer - no-one knew and no-one saw them. The blog has made me believe that the stuff I do is good enough, and my photography has risen to a completely different level. I am beginning to accept styling & photography jobs, and I'm working on my own photography webpage where people can find me and book me directly.  I also have a CRAZY exciting project I'm working on at the moment - it's very hush hush at the moment, but trust me you'll be the first to know if it takes off.



HOW DOES IT DIFFER FROM OTHERS IN ITS GENRE?

I tend to think that my blog is a bit different, because I share quite a bit of stuff from my own family, as well as all the things we do. We have explored many parts of this country, and are now working our way abroad. I also think my sense of humour plays a big part in what I write - at times cheeky, but when people meet me, I think the personality fits with how they imagined. The lifestyle and interior posts are also true to my style and aesthetics, so I think you can always find something you'd like.




WHAT IS MY WRITING PROCESS?

As I'm all about images, I tend to have them first and then figure out what to write secondarily.  Once I start though, the words just keep spilling out. Admittedly I am not one for long long pages of writing, more your quirky tips and musings that you can digest easily. I admire people who can write write, but me - I'll be the one writing blogs or articles for magazines, not thick books.....




Hope you enjoyed my little Blog-hop. And now to the 2 people I have to nominate.

My first nominee is my sweet friend Birgitte from A dusty olive green. I met Birgitte at a blogger conference, and adored her  beautiful photography. We met for a coffee in Copenhagen, and couldn't stop chatting (still haven't stopped). Not only did we grow up almost in the same neighbourhood, we share a similar passion for photography and blogging. Birgitte lives in Florence / Italy, and shares her tips of where to go in Italy as well as Copenhagen. 


Second nominee is the lovely Kizzy from The Dainty dolls house. Kizzy's blog was one of the first ones I followed, because Kizzy has a Universe filled with beautiful things, and she shares all the things that makes her heart sing. Not only has Kizzy got her own fabulous style, she shares her thoughts on life, and I love going to her blog for a little dose of happiness every day.
