Time is relative. In many cases two years isn’t a very long time. For me, these past years feels like just two weeks and an eternity at the same time. That is because i have been so lucky to have shared my life with the amazing Allan. It is almost surreal how happy he makes me and in these dark times he is my shining light. Thank you my dearest, for everything. I am positive that it will only get better from here. In 10 years time it is so good we just sit in a corner vomiting rainbows
My beautiful and wize mother is quite amazing. She’s just fantastic in general, but this time I had one particualer thing in mind. For my 20th birthday she got me an extraodanary present, a weekend stay at Kokkedal Castle near Copenhagen.
The weekend was full of fancy treatments and delicious meals. We got there Friday evening and had some dinner in the late 1800’s style library bar. After a couple of cocktails we retired to our room and watched some dearly missed Norwegian tv until we fell asleep. I haven’t seen (Norwegian) tv for a very long time and it was very nice and comforting.
Saturday we had a longer itinerary. It started with a breakfast in the 1700’s basement of the castle. There were no free tables so we got the secluded Le Chambre with a big round table and velvet curtains that separated us from the rest of the guests. It felt very fancy and VIP and just a pinch silly. I was granted a yoga session to go with my stay and Allan and I tried couples-yoga after breakfast. We went out in the sun filled Castle garden and got our zen going on a surprisingly warm October’s morning. It was truly peaceful and breathtaking.
Making some friends
Next thing on the list was of course the spa. I was the lucky one and had a aroma massage while Allan soaked in the pool and steam room. At the end of it all we felt like two fat kittens who had relaxed in the sun all day. After a walk in the neighbourhood forest it was time for dinner. Caviar, champagne and poussin, nothing short for the birthday girl this year.
On Sunday we were leaving, but we got to catch the afternoon tea for we went back to the real world. We got the old school treatment with small sandwiches, mini cakes and petit four, started with a glass of champagne of course. It wouldn’t be afternoon tea without champagne..right.
Anyway we had a blast. We felt like nobles and got so spoiled we should only eat rice for a week to calm down. Lovely weekend, great service and Worlds (Lol) is coming up. Life is kinda okay
I haven’t really paid attention to this fashion week-thingy, but I am living with Copenhagen’s best dressed man. That means that I had to visit it at some point. And my suspicions were right. I messed up dinner at Friday so we dressed up and went to Restaurant Vincent for dinner. It was a lovely, three course meal. We got a thick, spicy pumpkin soup as appetizer, which were followed by a lovely, creamy risotto. We picked my favourite dish as main course, comfit de canard (duck) and while Allan ate a mediocre crème brulée, I got some tasty apple pie with vanilla ice and melon cubes. Nice wine and magnificent company made a splendid meal.
We wanted to go out for cocktails after and Allan remembered he was invited to the pre-preparty for Tag Heuer at Herrenes Magasin. We thought that it was just as good as any other place and there were nice clothes, bubbles and interesting and funny speeches. We arrived a bit late so it wasn’t long before the party went over to the incredibly hip nightclub “Zen”. It was a weird feeling that the bouncer greeted us with a smile and removed the chain in front of the door for us. You have to keep in mind that I just turned eighteen a couple of months ago and have always felt that the bouncers are my enemy. But I guess not any more.
There were long hallways, like a labyrinth to get to the terrace where the prepary was at. Since we’re a form of geeks we both felt we were entering unknown territory and was suspicious by nature. The terrace were really crowded and we almost died in the attempt to get to the bar. After a while we found some of the guys from the pre-prepary and it turned out to be really interesting conversations. We all admitted that this was a bit out of our comfort zone, but you know, free drinks and stuff. Me and Allan planned to just take a look downstairs at the real Tag Heuer-pary and then probably go to a different place when there were too many snobs and “too-cool-for-you” people at Zen.
When we first got down we had a bit of a laugh. There were a lot of people and cool music, but no one at the dance floor. Everyone stood by the walls and looked kind of awkward. I thought if that’s what the cool fashion parties are like we could just as well go to a high school prom.
We ended up at Herrenes Magasin’s table and got more bubbles to drink. Luckily the people there were, contrary from the majority of the party, really nice and interesting. So we stayed, got more drinks and danced on the tables. I didn’t expect to stay at Zen for long, but in the end, we danced the night through. What a nice surprise of a evening.
My Christmas present for Allan was tickets to see the “Skammarens Datter” marathon, theatre based on a fantasy series I loved when I was younger (and I still do). We saw it yesterday and man, my head got blown. Luckily for me it was quite a long time ago I read the books so I only remembered bits of the tale and was surprised, exited, scared, happy and angry throughout the six hours we where there. You see, they did book 1 and 2 with dinner in the middle.
We had the best seats one could wish for, the food was really great and medieval, I had the best company in the whole world and it really made me feel special.
We had a lovely walk back home just in time to change into really brown clothing. We were invited to a 30th birthday celebration with 70’s theme. My darling had bought the most delightfully awful jacket and I went full out apache. It was such a great party and lots of new and old awesome friends.
Date night! Seems like ages since we went out, but today we went to the movies. I have wanted to see Frozen for a long time and dragged Allan along.
It’s not much to say about it really. The movie was nice and so sweet that we were close to getting diabetes. It was classic Disney with prince charming, prince not-so-charming, a funny sidekick, animals with a lot of body language, princesses and castles. The aesthetics was wonderful and at the end of the movie we were so exited the we held around each other until we were almost crushed. And yes Allan though the movie was ever so cute (but don’t tell anyone!)
Afterwards we went to an Irish pub and got something hot to drink. The cider was mediocre and the atmosphere less than nice, so we went home pretty quickly and gamed some Lol.
I will say, go see Frozen! It will make you laugh, I promise.
The awesome Danish role-playing organisation Bifrost arranged a secret pre-preview of the sequel in the Hobbit trilogy (that was weird to write). Me and my lovely boyfriend headed to the cinema Dagmar after my job interview and then got our minds blow. I won’t write to much about it because I am no spoiler, but I will say this:
