Recently I had an amazing opportunity to attend an event hosted by Hotel Chocolat and Miild Makeup. My sweet friend Helen came with me, and it was honestly the best night ever! We ate way too much chocolate and got to try so many new makeup products. We were in HEAVEN.
HAPPY EASTER! Today has been such a wonderful day. I have really enjoyed celebrating my first Easter here in Denmark at Nicolas’ family’s beach house. I am sharing a few of my favourite photos, combining new Danish traditions with my own American ones. 🙂
Today was a perfect Sunday! The weather was amazing so Nicolas and I decided to take a walk and have a picnic at one of my favorite spots in Copenhagen. There is a little place called Langelinie Park near the Little Mermaid statue. It is so charming with its cozy benches and beautiful greenery. The cherry trees are currently blossoming in gorgeous shades of pink! I (unintentionally) wore
Copenhagen is one of the coziest cities ever so you can imagine just how perfect it is at Christmastime. I was lucky enough to be able to experience some Danish Christmas traditions and see Copenhagen beautifully decorated for the holiday season before coming home for Christmas. I made a list of the traditions, places, and treats I love the most. 🙂
1. Christmas Markets
I am pretty sure Nicolas and I visited a total of FIVE Christmas markets in Copenhagen. They are everywhere, and I cannot begin to describe how festive and unique each and every one was. There were so many vendors, yummy treats, decorations, and music. SO cozy.
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!
