Danish Jewellery finds

My admiration for Danish silver jewellery has been going on for years, first with the discovery of Pandora charms, and more recently with the discovery of Georg Jensen and Pernille Corydon. A minha admiração pela joalharia de prata dinamarquesa já dura há anos, desde que descobri as pulseiras da Pandora e, mais recentemente, com a descoberta de Georg Jensen e Pernille Corydon. So, when planning my trip to Copenhagen, I knew exactly what kind of souvenirs I wanted to get… Então, quando estava a planear a viagem a Copenhaga, sabia exactamente o género de souvenirs que queria comprar… On the…

Hello September!

I often still find myself craving a reset around the start of September. There was a post last week on Career Girl Daily about how September is the best month to set goals – and that really rang a bell! Just a couple of weeks back I had been discussing with my Mom that I still have that ‘back-to-school’ mindset of starting over, even though it’s been longer than I care to think about since I last went back to school.

London files #4 – Primrose Hill

No passado sábado decidi explorar uma zona de Londres sobre a qual tinha ouvido…

Copenhagen City Guide – Part 1

For the August bank holiday I wanted to go out of the UK and explore a new city. Copenhagen was the obvious choice as it had been on my list for years! Scandinavia is a region I am fascinated by not just because of its famous sights, but also because of their history, culture, architecture, design and general way of life. Para o feriado de final de Agosto aqui no Reino Unido, quis sair do país e explorar uma cidade nova. Copenhaga foi a escolha óbvia, já que estava na minha lista há anos! A Escandinávia é uma região que…
