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.

Brazilian times #1

Hello everyone!!

So Im writing this post from my beloved family´s place and happy to share with you all some tips from my country.

The first of them is:

#1 If ever in Brazil go to a “feira”

If the term is yet unknown to you, that means “fair”, but mostly of fresh vegetables and fruits and trust me on this one: you won´t find a larger and cheaper range of it anywhere else!

Most brazilians use to shop their weekly veggies at these fairs, because the farmers come themselves from their places to sell the products for a lower price than in the supermarkets.

It usually happens once a week in the middle of the street and the earlier you come the most fresh you get it!

One last tip! If you ever get to go to a “feira”, don´t forget to buy our most delicious pastry, the PASTEL. It is a fried dough filled with whatever you wish, from meat to veggies and cheese. This is me this morning enjoying my pastel:

Sun kisses and let me know if you have ever been to Brazil or to a feira 🙂

Christmas Eve

Christmas eve was amazing!

I love waking up christmas morning knowing the whole family will be together and the delicious food we will be eating all day. I had the best day with my family watching christmas movies, eating christmas cookies and having the best christmas dinner. Our beautiful tree was spreading light and cosiness throughout the day and my brother also brought his puppy named Agnes which made everything even more fun! Here are some snaps i took during the day.

Christmas spirit

Don’t you just love Christmas?

I do! My favorite month of the year is definitely December, because I find it so cozy and filled with love. Christmas in Copenhagen is so beautiful when all the Christmas lights come up and the lovely smell of mule wine, Christmas cookies, pancakes, nuts and spices just fills my heart with warmth and love!

I have a passion for cakes so to stay in the Christmas spirit I baked some Danish Christmas cookies yesterday called “Pebernødder” in Danish and they turned out so good! Therefore I want to share the recipe with you guys so you can try them out. ENJOY!

YOU NEED:

250 g butter

250 g sugar

1 tbsp dried ginger powder

1 tbsp cinnamon

1 tbsp white pepper

1 tbsp cardamom

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tbsp baking soda (bicarbonate of soda)

1 dl heavy cream

500 g flour

Mix butter and sugar together until the sugar is dissolved in the butter. The butter should be room temperature to make it easier for you to work with. Mix in the heavy cream carefully. Do not whip too much. Take another bowl and mix the spices, baking powder and baking soda with the flour and afterwards mix it with the butter dough. Mix/knead the dough until it becomes a nice and soft dough where everything has been dissolved and worked out. Roll out small “sausages” in the size of a pinky finger, and then cut into small pieces of 1 cm. Important to make them small! A little tip is to squeeze them in the top so they kind of look like a Christmas tree – because they will fall in the oven and be round like we want them too 😉

Bake them in the oven at 200 degrees for only 10 minutes. Mine only needed 7 minutes so you can look at them and see if they become a bit brown around the edges, then they are done.

Hope you will like them! What is your favorite christmas treat to bake?

Aman

Never too dark to wear black

Who would have known that coming from a very colourful cultural background, I would end up wearing black as an everyday outfit?!

In Cape Verde people normally wear black if they are going to a funeral and it is very rare to wear black from head to toe. People like to wear colours, all kind of bright and colourful things.

I love colours and all the happy energy that comes with it – yet when you’re a Copenhagener you know that black is everything!

It is the city’s signature style! So, to feel part of the group you have to wear black at some point. Right?! Cross-cultural influences are a new and fun way to express your identity. The idea of creating a two-way dialogue about fashion and cultural clashes inspires me a lot as a designer, and there are a number of things that I adore about living in Denmark: one of them is the autumn. I just love to see the leaves falling, the fresh air, and especially the fall fashion, which is just so amazing!

Her are some pictures from one of my latest photo-shoots with my photographer friend Anders Andersen who helped me creating a contrast between my outfits on a beautiful sunny day during this autumn.

When wearing black, I like to play with different layers and textures to make it more interesting and fun to look at.

Black on Black is classy and chic, but it can also be boring, so by playing with statement accessories, you can make your outfit stand out from the crowd. In this outfit I am wearing a statement golden necklace, a brown leather bag and golden details on my boots to spice up the look.

Black does not have to mean boring because when you are playing with layers, textures or cut-outs, you can easily make your outfit look more interesting.

Finally, here is more inspiration to lure you to the dark side 😉 which can also be used as a guideline for christmas gift.

New Year´s Outfits

Whats up boys and girls!

This is Mariana, I am the girl to the right in the picture above and today I will give you some nice tips about New Year´s Outfits in case you are wondering what to wear for such a special date.

Well, I know in most countries there is no such rules for this date, but in my home country – Brazil – it is practically forbidden to wear anything but WHITE!

Rumor has it that the color symbolizes peace and wearing something white on the first day of the year will bring you some good stuff on the next 365 days!

So here is some inspiration in case you want to do different during this New Year´s Eve.

What are you going to wear?

Love,

Mari.
