Favourite European Cities…



I was definitely  bitten by the travel bug early on in life and travelling is today one of my favourite aspect of life. Travelling gives me life! Travelling gives me the opportunity to explore the spice of life way beyond my own nose. YASS!

Here are my 5 favourite European cities I have had the pleasure to visit and live in.


Honestly, where would I even start with this one. Barcelona is one of those vibrant cities that makes me want to quit life, drink coffee all day, move into a run down warehouse to be artistic and creative. I don’t have a talent for either painting or drawing, but Barcelona makes me feel like I could make a living out of it anyway.

To me, Barcelona has it all! It has the big city feel and there is never a dull moment. There is a beach (!), gorgeous weather and a mutual understanding for drinking sangria before 5pm. The architecture is unique considering Gaudí’s pieces are spread all across the city and I feel like I fall love with the city every time I visit.




Where wine tasting serves you a normal glass of wine…




Probably one of the coolest cities I have had the joy of visiting – the vibe is just so liberal, free and “ah, life”! Assuming Copenhagen is a reflection of the general Danish population, I totally understand why the Danes are considered the happiest people in the world. Copenhagen makes me want to laugh, smile and be appreciative. There is joy and laughter in the smallest aspects of life, you can have the best day by enjoying a beverage of your choice and reading a book or be surrounded by friends.






Scandi Design is my kind of design.



Since I live here, London cannot go unmentioned. I moved to London in 2010 and I have lived for this city ever since. The city that never rests, literally. Anyone who has been brave enough to go on the underground during rush hour or visit Oxford Circus on a weekend (daredevils visit Oxford Circus on a weekend in December) know what I am talking about. Tuna can, sardin can, whatever fish can you can think of is the best description of London during rush hours. For some reason, I do love it overall, though I cannot stand it in the moment. Nonetheless, London is the city I grew up in as a young adult (now verging plain adult) and I love it for the lessons and experiences I have had here. London has taught me compassion when times are challenging, confidence when met by those who doubt you and to never settle.







I am fortunate to have a better half who will jump at any opportunity to travel, whether it be for a weekend or 2 weeks! We are going to Copenhagen today and we are only hours away from rushing out the door and I cannot wait.

What are your favourite cities?


Honourable mentions: Oslo, Amsterdam, Brighton and Puerto Banus. 


He told me to “get a hobby”…

You might think that my significant other telling me to “get a hobby” would make me slightly livid, which it did for a brief moment (of course). In hindsight, he was right. Having watched every single episode of Rupaul’s Drag Race 8 times, I had to admit defeat in the hobby department. I bounced around various ideas.. how can a 26 year old just jump off of the couch and get a hobby? I could have taken up long distance running, but I am too much of a coach lover for that. I could have bought a fancy camera a joined a local dark room club, but that would be too expensive. I could have initiated some serious kitchen action and bake all the pastries I could think of, but cooking is absolutely not my forte. Anyone who knows me is aware that I am on the Jane plan to avoid the kitchen as much as I can. 

Then there is blogging. A melting pot of multiple outlets – writing, pictures, inspiration and stuffI love stuff.

So here I am!

Follow me on this journey of stuff and we will see what I can come up with and make this new hobby exciting and adventurous.

Disclaimer: This blog most definitely will be filled (hopefully) with whatever makes me smile, love and laugh. Clothes and more stuff! I love stuff.
