Halloween at Tivoli

I absolutely love Halloween. I am pretty sure it stems from my mom’s obsession with this holiday. She always goes all out with decorating the house, burning Yankee spiced pumpkin candles, and making sure we always watch an absurd amount of Halloween movies. So when Nicolas proposed we go to Tivoli’s Halloween celebration, it was an obvious YES.

Tivoli, the world’s second oldest amusement park, is one of my absolute favorite places in Copenhagen. (Yes, Copenhagen is also home to the world’s oldest amusement park, too, if you remember one of my previous posts.) Tivoli’s atmosphere reminds me a little of Disney World’s but on a much cozier, intimate level. It is magical and charming, and unlike most theme parks, it appeals to those of all ages. The amusements take up only a small portion of the park. There are flower gardens, a theater, band stands, and countless cafes and restaurants, but I will revisit all that in another post. 🙂

I knew based on my past visit to Tivoli last summer that the Halloween festivities here would be nothing short of wonderful. I was right. Upon entering the park, I literally felt like I was in Halloweentown (only the best Disney Channel original movie ever). There was thousands of festive lights and jack-o-lanterns along with spooky music and treats everywhere you looked!

Brunch and Stuff

Hey, all! Life has been so crazy, hence the reason why it has been a little over a week since I last uploaded. I have been very busy studying at a makeup and hair artist academy here in Copenhagen. I LOVE IT!!! I am so happy to go to school and play with makeup all day. It is a dream come true! Anyways, on with todays post.

The three things that make me the happiest are food, pajamas, and lazy days. And Nicolas happens to know that. So on a beautiful Saturday morning he surprised me by bringing me brunch in bed. Obviously I got out of bed to grab my camera and take some photos (because it was too pretty not to photograph), but it was nothing short of delicious. He even made me coffee in my favorite Audrey mug. 🙂

A Cozy Ocean View

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Hello, all! I have just returned from a visit to the states to see my wonderful family. Every year in the fall we travel to Ocean City, Maryland – a place that is so close to my heart. I have been visiting this particular beach since I was little. It is so special to me. Ocean City is such a popular tourist location during the summer months, but I think it is even more charming in the fall. The water is still warm, the air has a slight chill, and the beaches are much more quiet. I was thrilled to be able to spend time with my family, relax, and eat a lot of good food. 🙂
