Wearable Halloween Makeup // Easy and Glamorous

Last night, Nicolas and I had plans to go to Tivoli to see all the Halloween decorations and activities. (I did a post on it last year that you can read here. It is quite spooky and magical!) We also planned on going out to dinner first. I wanted to be festive and play around with my makeup but still stay within the ‘wearable’ category, as it wasn’t a costume party or Continue Reading

7 Ways to Embrace Hygge in the Fall // Efterårs Hygge

Hello, everyone! Today is all about FALL! This season is such a happy time for me, and I’m sure many of you feel the same! Seeing the leaves change and eating everything pumpkin is pure bliss. I love pulling out all of my comfy sweaters and watching Halloween movies. For me, hygge and autumn go hand in hand. Hygge is a something special you feel and experience. I know it is quite a big trend in the U.S. right now, but here in Denmark, it is a way of life. You don’t have to Continue Reading

A Danish Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! This past Sunday, I hosted my first ever Thanksgiving dinner with the help (ok, he did more than help) of Nicolas for his wonderful family. Just because I am overseas does not mean that I will ever skip out on one of my favorite days of the year, not to mention the leftover turkey sandwiches! The evening was nice and cozy, and I was so happy to share some of my favorite American traditions with them.

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!

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. 🙂
