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.

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

Summer Festivals

When in Denmark one CANNOT start creating expectations about summer, because rain will come and wash it all away…Oh, DK!

Well, despite the funny coming and going of my beloved sun, I am pretty much excited about this summer. First, because lately I had to stop and think about my weight, which has been increasing for the last few years (I guess being in a relationship DOES help you gaining weight!), then I decided on having a healthier lifestyle – don´t miss my next post! – so I am expecting to have, as Danes say, a “bikini ready” body until summer, but mostly keep on being healthy. IMG_2377Second, because so many festivals on the corner just makes you dream of fresh outfits and sitting on the grass with friends and a couple of drinks, so here is a list with 5 Scandinavian Festivals which you just cannot miss:

 

Distortion – June 4-8DistortionThis is a Street Music Festival that sort of opens the summer season in Copenhagen, so whenever the whole city is out for Distortion, you know it is time to put on some shorts! This year, it is going to happen from June 4th to 8th starting in Nørrebro and Vesterbro, then heading to the Harbour of Copenhagen and the Final Party. The best thing about this festival is that it is for free so everyone can join, but if you are not planning to attend it, watch out these streets, so you can chose other ways to go to your destination. It is almost impossible to bike, drive or even walk.

 

Secret Solstice – June 20-22Solstice Secret Solstice in Iceland has been gaining a lot of international and local recognition, maybe because of the exciting explanation behind it (it will happen during the 24-hour midnight sun during Summer Solstice and is based on the old Norse Mythology) or the even more exciting line up, which includes Massive Attack, Woodkid, Kerri Chandler and many more. If you ever wished to be in a place with endless sun, this is your destination!

 

Roskilde Festival – June 29-July 06RoskildeThe 43 year old pioneer – and one of the largest in Europe – festival that happens in the city of Roskilde, Denmark brings this year, among others, heavy names like The Rolling Stones, Drake, Stevie Wonder, Lykke Li and Manu Chao. It is a big event, so make sure to have a tent, plenty of food and beer. The good thing is that there is the possibility for students to volunteer for small jobs and get free tickets.

 

Stella Pollaris – early AugustStellaImagine yourself surrounded by nature, good music and company. The coolest locations are always held for this electronic music festival.. Be aware for whenever Stella Pollaris releases the dates for 2014, since this is a MUST GO festival if you live in Cph!

 

Strøm – August 11-17StrømIf you are into electronic music, this is the festival for you! With a range of Danish and International DJs and musicians, it is held late summer in different venues around the town of Copenhagen.

 

This year, I personally plan to attend Distortion, Stella Pollaris and go to Roskilde Festival as a volunteer, how about you, which summer festivals do you plan to go to?

Love, Mari

Road Trip to Dragør

Hello my dears, after a long time without writing here I am again!

If you are following us on Instagram and Facebook, you could see that we have been pretty busy with school these days since we were having intensive textile and digital print classes (it was AMAZING, I can´t wait to start working on my new fabrics!), so that is why we have been a little absent, but we PROMISE to be here everyday from now on 😉IMG_2913

Lets get to the point that matters!

A few days ago, my boyfriend -now fiancée, I just cannot get used to that word-, his brother and I celebrated his birthday with a little treat. We rented a car for one day and went on a road trip to this coziest little town that is 30min south from Copenhagen, called Dragør. Screen Shot 2014-03-30 at 2.25.12 PM

Back in the days, it used to be a fisherman´s town, which is why you can still see a few boats by their coast nowadays. In the main street, we went to a little café that also happens to be a hair saloon and a shop. Sounds weird, I know, but actually it turned out to be a nice concept.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you live or are planning to come to Denmark, I definitely recommend a short visit to Dragør. They even have their own museum, which we could not get in since it was closed on that day, but is probably filled with even more interesting stories about the city and its people. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Meanwhile, we also managed to pass by Kastrup´s Søbad, a large architectural project made by White Architects AB Göterborg (more info here), right by Amager Beach in Copenhagen. Seems like I will be spending a lot of my summer days, there, how about you?IMG_2846

Lots of love, Mari.
