One of our adopted traditions here in Denmark is Halloween. We love the whole thing, and go all in - but with a specifically eerie theme. Kids all dress up in ghoulish costumes, go trick or treating ,and the shops are having a ball selling spiders, cobweb, pumpkins galore. One of our favourite places to go in Copenhagen is Tivoli Gardens. Many think it 'just' an amusement park, but it's far more than that. It's an amazing garden filled to the brim with flowers, restaurants and a place for adult and kids alike to go and enjoy themselves. Now they open for Halloween, and if you fancy seeing Halloween decorations - like you've never seen before, I recommend going there. Happy Halloween everyone, I apologise in advance for the many dressed up pics of the girls I will no doubt share on Instagram - follow me here.

I remember the design of Bjørn Wiinblad from when I was a child. The quirky intricate drawings of ladies, with floral hair always fascinated me. Now they have updated the design, and made it current, whilst still keeping to the aesthetics of Bjørn Wiinblad himself. I think this stuff is either your cup of tea, or totally not. So what do you think? Something to add to your Christmas wish-list, or not really for me thank you very much!!!

There is a place in Copenhagen that is dubbed the end of the world. It's 'Kongelunden' - at the very tip of the city, where the forest meets the ocean. The walk to the beach through the forest is absolutely stunning. The weather was mild for autumn, and the sun peeked out, so we were eager to get out. When we approached the beach, there were loads of Kite surfers out to enjoy the last of the waves and the sunshine. The girls had never seen anything like it and they loved the spectacle. If you come to Copenhagen and you need some wind in your hair, nature and salty air - this is the place I'd recommend. Happy Monday everyone.
