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.

Summer bless

Hi there!

It had been some time since my last post…I had been busy with my internship among other things but I missed sharing my thoughts and moments with you.

So today I decided to share some pictures from one of my summer weekends in Denmark.

It is very common in here for people to spend their summer time in a Summer House, or Kolonihave. My husband’s family  have summer houses both in Rørvig and in Hald, so it is predictable that sometimes we go there for some cosy relaxing get away.

Coming from an island, makes me feel obviously “home” to spend my summer days by the sea/beach, so whenever we get the chance we spend our weekends outside Copenhagen.

A month ago, on our way to the summer house in Rørvig, Kasper and I spend one night at Nykøbing in Sjælland. It was such a relaxing city with such a beautiful harbour. Basicly a “fish city” surrounded by water. You can get delicious fresh fish and sea food everyday and enjoy the amazing panorama. As I love fish, it was so nice for me to be able to buy it fresh, just 10 minutes after it had been caught from the ocean 🙂 .

The night view from the city was also so beautiful as it was possible to clearly see the star and shooting stars while at the same time being surrounded by water.

Here are some pictures from my amazing weekend in Sjælland.

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.

Dreaming of New York

Hey Folks! I am so excited about my internship in New York. I had never been in NY before, (only in my dreams like 100.000 times) but I just love the city! As Aman mentioned on her last post the city has an amazing energy flow where things are happening all the time, like if the city never sleeps.

As Alicia Keys said “I got a pocket full of dream Baby…” and for a dreamer like me, it feels right to say that New York is just the perfect place to be.

I know that there is a lot of talk about “living your dream “and that some people even think its nonsense. I of course believe in living my dreams! But when we think about “living our dreams”, we make the mistake of thinking that everything will be easy, or that there is no effort required in making your dreams come true. Well, that’s not always the case. I know for a fact that I will not be living the “Sex And The City” lifestyle for example… because of my low budget, but I will not let money discourage me because one of the most amazing things about life is that there are so many different ways of reaching your goal. As I mentioned on my last post, travelling can really open your eyes to many delightful things and 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.

So let NY be an incentive for change! It will turn me upside down & shake all the change out of my pockets, both literally & symbolically but I will live it up to the last drop!

By now, I will leave you with some pictures from my outfit of the day inspired by NY urban lifestyle 😉

Take me back

Almost 2 years ago I’ve been living in New York – and I miss it so much!

I really want to go there again and walk around in the big city, drinking lots of coffee, eating delicious food, shopping, drinking cocktails, and just soak up the amazing energy the city has.

I’ll show you some pictures from last time there – TAKE ME BACK!!

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

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.

He is going to represent Denmark in the World Championship in July and on top of that, he even took the title as the Nordic Champion where he won over Sweden and Norway.

Sit´n´Grilling in Vejby

Hey ya´ll!

I hope you are all enjoying the sun, at least I have been longing for it all year long, so all I think about right now is being out there as most as I can 🙂

So it is, me and Thomas have been yesterday to one of his friend´s place in the north of Denmark for a grilling session with the most amazing griller ever! It is called Sit´n´Grill and it is a table with a grilling center, where everyone can sit around and make their own meal, how amazing is that? I was quite surprised about how easy it was to set and use it, so I can definitely recommend it. Go to their website and check how cool they are! IMG_3143 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It was a lot of fun, I met wonderful people, we played games, ate amazing fresh food and of course, drank a lot!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As the weather and the place were quite propitious, I decided to use an off-white summer dress with bordeaux sandals, hope you like it and let us know how you are enjoying your summer!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
