Copenhagen Botanical Gardens

We had a day off together the girls and I, and as you all know, we love exploring. So I had brought along my new Tamron Lens: The Mega zoom 16-30mm to see what it was capable of. The lens has an astounding range - from wide-angle to makro photography - so the perfect lens for someone like me.

We went to the Botanical Gardens in Copenhagen, a place of beauty, tranquility and naturally a lot of the green stuff. The girls were delighted, the weather was delightful, and I had the best time testing this amazing lens, as well as hanging with my girls. 
Have a look at this and see what you think.

The humidity in here was so intense it steamed up the lens - I LOVE the result!

I am delighted with my lens, and I think it will be a firm favourite whilst travelling - as well as for interiors and portraits. The images are crisp and sharp, the lens isn't too heavy, and the images come out great. If you fancy knowing more - look here.

Bolia is another company that keeps hitting a note with me. Their new collection is fab, and it almost reminds me of a the perfect DIY on his to style , and photograph interiors - something I have decided I need to learn. Their design is 'made to order' as they don't have vast warehouses full of stock, but keep it down to a minimum (going greener) which in my book is great.

So here it is - cool & stylish Bolia.

Design Trade Copenhagen 2014

Yesterday I attended the cool design trade show - DESIGN TRADE in Copenhagen. I was lucky to meet up with a favourite blogger friend I met at #BlogtourNYC - Iris from Holland. The show takes place in Bella Center and I naturally snapped a few pics of the über cool design hotel next door called BELLA SKY

The show was full of the best of the best of (mainly) Scandinavian design, and there was plenty cool stuff to go around. These here are my favourites:
 Awesome art for your walls by the lovely ladies at Bob Noon
They even had a proper popcorn machine
Hagedornhagen have made bugs on the walls popular !!
 I love my type - and yes I love your type too!!
 Muuto always hits the right note with me!
Menu has gone from a bit old fashioned - to right on the money - and I like it.

So all in all a good show, I enjoyed it and could have spent a pretty penny.
Happy Monday everyone, have a great week.

OH yeah and It's my Birthday today <3 <3
