The only beach towel you will ever need!

What up boys & girls!

Here I am again and this time to let you know of the only thing you will (probably) need during this sumer! You might be thinking a new outfit or shoes or perfume..well, even though I study fashion design, that is not what I consider quite important during this season. Because of the fact that I come from a quite tropical country, the most important for me would be to feel comfortable while by the beach, which is where I will be spending most of my time 🙂OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Not a long time ago I got to know about this amazing beach towel designed by the sweetest guys in San Diego. But what is so special about a beach towel, Mariana? You might be thinking, huh… I bet you at some point had to improvise a little pillow (made out of clothes, backpacks and the most crazy shit) in order to lay down by the sand and not feel pain by the end of the day! Well, it always happened to me, but Bruno, Brandon and Steve thought of a towel that comes with a light pillow inside, so you can easily carry everywhere you go with no extra weight!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Not only that, but the towel is eco-friendly and made out if 100% turkish cotton, which makes it extra-comfy.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I could not wait to test mine and here you can see the infinite ways you can use it. Beach towel, sarong, turban, headband, you name it!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you want to help out this amazing guys by backing up the project, run to see their campaign and pre-order your Sand Cloud towel, I am sure you will love it ❤

Love, Mari.

Roskilde Festival 2014

Hello my great people!

I have been missing the blog like crazy, but as you know, lately I took some days off for myself in order to attend Roskilde Festival in Denmark and I gotta say: DAMN, IT WAS GREAT!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It is almost a tradition for some Danes to attend this amazing musical experience every year and I have been waiting for 7 years to finally do it, but it was totally worth it! Some of my favourite bands and artists were performing (Emicida -from Brazil-, Major Lazer, Drake..oh wait..) and I had the pleasure to go with my homies: Thomas, William, Aman, Moe and Caroline, who helped the camp experience to be amazing!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIMG_3250

The greatest thing about Roskilde are the details, the organisation and the mood. The many lounges and volunteers areas are great and very cozy when you need a rest.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It also makes a great experience to be aloud to wear whatever you want and in our album on Facebook you can see the most stylish people who have been there. Enjoy it and feel free to tag your friends and/or yourself 🙂

Love, Mari.

Zara summer sales

Hey guys,

If you live in Copenhagen, you certainly know that EVERY store is on sales now, right? Well, as a Zara employee, I have been keeping an eye on the items that I wanted from a certain time until now, so it is finally time to shop them! Here are my personal favorites 😉 Sales must haves

A trip down to San Francisco’s hills

After a long flight from Copenhagen (11 hours), we landed in the beautiful Bay Area with bright blue sky and sunny (not always like that). Hello San Francisco!

I stayed at the hotel Marriott Union Square at 480 Sutter Street which was 2 minutes walking to the city centre. I was living at the 21st floor so I had a nice view from my hotel room window.

I was there with Kasper but because he was there with work I had most of the daytime by myself. It was actually nice walking around enjoying the city.

The best part about any trip is the time we get to explore the amazing areas of a city. There’s nothing that makes me feel more alive and excited than discovering something new, getting to know new people and a new culture better. For me that is what travelling is about. It is somehow the only thing you can actually  purchase that enriches you even more as you gain and cultivate knowledge from different cultures and from the world. Somehow it really opens up your eyes for  many delightful things.

We spent 6 days out there and I got to see part of the city, shop and enjoy walking up and down the hills of San Francisco.

Some of my destinations were; walking through Chinatown, which it is the oldest and largest of its kind in North America; Took a ride on the city’s famous cable cars; visited the car cable museum; visited shopping malls and classic American shops like forever 21, Macy’s, DSW (the designer shoe land); tried amazing seafood and walked across the Golden Gate Bridge (the most iconic landmark in San Francisco).

Unfortunately the Museum of Modern Art is closed for improvement and reconstruction, so I was not able to see some of the local art pieces from this museum. I also did not had the chance to visit the Alcatraz prison as I had to buy the ticket days in advance (I went there and the next tickets available were for 26th June), so whenever you going to San Francisco and would like to visit the prison, I recommend that you book or buy tickets in advance. It is also possible, if you are really lucky, to purchase tickets very early morning like 7:30, from people that had cancelled but I would not relay on that because the tickets are limited.

Overall, I had such a great time out there and I would definitely like to go back there again. The city has its charm and magic somehow.

What about you, where is your next destination?

With love,

Noe

 

 

The Color Run

Hi there!

Last sunday my friend and I participated in Zulu – The Color Run in Copenhagen. It was SO fun!

It is called the happiest 5 km run – and I really do believe it is the happiest run in the world! Basically everyone runs 5 km, and there is a pit-stop every kilometer where you get colored powder and water thrown at you.

It was such a fun sunday, the sun was shining, the music was nice and loud and everybody was happy and covered in color! When people reached the goal there was a big stage with a DJ, so in the end, everybody gathered in front of the stage and danced while throwing color in the air. This is definitely not the last time I am participating in this event!

Doesn’t it look fun? 😉

Tourist-ing around town

Hey guys!

It has been a while, hope you are enjoying the sun out there, well, I am 🙂

So my mother-in-law-to-be came all the way from Brazil to visit us. I guess she did not want to be around the World Cup Buzz, so Copenhagen must feel like a great place to escape! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It is quite a pleasure having family and friends visiting us, since we only go back home once a year and sometimes it almost feels like we´re too far away and distant, both physically and emotionally, from all the ones we love, so I am very excited to have her here and soon some of our argentinian and german friends as well!

This saturday we decided to take her for a little tour around town, yes, I know, very turistic, but we will get to the most secret spots later on. First things, first! This is the outfit I chose to go and it felt amazing being able to use a backless shirt, with the wind blowing my skirt and hair, I don´t want summer to ever end!

How are you using your summertime?

Diageo World Class Nordic Final 2014

Hi guys!

I want to dedicate this post to my amazing big brother Hardeep Rehal. He is a professional bartender and last wednesday Diageo World Class Nordic Finals were held here in Copenhagen in the beautiful Hotel D’angleterre.

The competition was held over two days where all the competitors had to compete in several challenges where 6 judges had to judge them on skills, creativity, creations and performance.

One of the last challenges was called “Mystery Box” where they got some minutes to pick out some ingredients and create a cocktail. My brother created the cocktail Norseman Sour and it contained gin, sea buckthorn, licorice and lemon juice.
