DIY – Smyks earrings!

Hi everyone! I am super excited about this post, because today I am showing you how to make the most amazing earrings! I haven’t done a DIY in so long, and I have just missed it so much! The post is in collaboration with Smyks, who kindly sponsored all of the items that I needed. If you want to make your own pair of earrings or any other piece of jewely, you can find everything you need to get started at Smyks.dk (they ship wordwide!) or you can visit their shop on Isafjordsgade 3 in Copenhagen. But enough chit-chatting, let’s get started!

Items I have used:
-Kreol earrings in silver 25mm
-Silver thread 0,4mm (30cm)
-Figaro chain 4mm (20cm)
-Granat pearl 2mm and 3mm
-Spinel pearl 2mm
-Black agat 3mm
-Needle-nose pliers
-Cutting tool

 1: Start out by laying out the design of the earring. I chose some pearls in fall colors and different sizes plus a few small chains.

2: Wrap the thread around the earring and clam around it to make sure it won’t move. Now you can begin to add some pearls. I added one pearl at a time, wrapping the tread around the earring in between each pearl.

3: Add a chain (or several) just as you would add the pearls.

4: When you are done adding the pearls and chains, just wrap the thread around the earring an clam together just like in the beginning. And viola, you’re done!

I think they turned out so well, and they were actually super easy to make. I will definitely visit Smyks again soon!

August highlights!

Kalenderen viser september, og det betyder, at det officielt er efterår! Det er absolut min yndlingsårstid, og jeg glæder mig til at vise jer en masse lækre efterårsoutfits! Inden da får I dog lige et indblik i, hvad jeg har lavet i årets sidste sommermåned. Månedens (eller årets) højdepunkt var et bryllup min kæreste og jeg var til i slutningen af august. Jeg elsker bryllupper, og det her var bare så smukt, og vi havde det så sjovt! Hvad har du lavet i august? 🙂

English: The calender says it’s September, which means that it is finally fall! Fall is definitely my favorite season, and I can’t wait to show you all of my nice fall outfits! But before I do that, I want to show you what I’ve been up to in August. The highlight of the month (or the year) was a wedding my boyfriend and I went to at the end of August. I love weddings, and this one was so beautiful, and we had such a good time! What have you been up to in August? 🙂

Min søde lillesøster er i lære som frisør, og det kommer ofte mig til gode! 😉 // My lovely sister is training to be a hairdresser, which I like to take advantage of! 😉

Til brylluppet havde vi desværre ikke tid til at tage outfitbilleder med mit kamera, så det her er alt i får. Jeg havde glædet mig så meget til at hoppe i denne kjole, og jeg følte mig som en prinsesse i den! // Unfortunaltely we didn’t have the time to take outfit photos at the wedding, so this is all you get. I was so excited to wear this dress, and I felt like a princess in it!

Brylluppet blev holdt på Munkebo Kro, og bordene var pyntet så fint! // The wedding took place at Munkebo Kro, and the table setting was gorgeous!

Maden til brylluppet var simpelthen så lækker, og selvfølgelig var jeg mest begejstret for desserten! // The food at the wedding was delicious, and of course I liked the dessert best!

Jeg tilbragte en af de sidste sommeraftener på Rossopomodoro i godt selskab og med god mad! // I spend one of the last summer nights at Rossopomodoro in good company and with amazing food!

Summer nails!

Sommeren er ved at være slut, og derfor får I i dag årets sidste sommernegle. Jeg er vild med at bruge mit stamping kit, og når jeg har lidt ekstra tid, kommer der også farve i designet. Det tog derfor et par timer at lave disse negle, men jeg synes også at de blev virkelig fine og super sjove! Hvad har I på neglene for tiden? 🙂

English: Summer is coming to an end, and today I want to show you my last summer nails this year. I love my stamping kit, and whenever I have extra spare time I like to fill in the design with colors, which is what I have done today. It took a while, but I think they turned out to be super cute and fun! What’s on your nails at the moment? 🙂

July highlights!

Ja, jeg ved det godt.. Vi er halvvejs inde i august, men jeg nægter at springe en måned over i min highlights serie! 😉 Juli var en fantastisk måned, og jeg glæder mig især til at vise jer et par billeder fra vores tur til Frankrig. Det var første gang jeg besøgte landet, men det bliver bestemt ikke sidste gang! Det eneste der godt kunne være bedre, var franskmændendes engelskkundskaber, men derudover var maden, vejret og oplevelserne bestemt ikke til at klage over! Hvad har I lavet i jeres sommerferie? 🙂

English: Yeah, I know.. We’re halfway through August, but I refuse to skip a month in this highlight series! 😉 July was an amazing month, and I can’t wait to show you a couple of photos from our trip to France. It was the first time I visited the country, but I was definitely not the last time! The only thing I could complain about was their English, but besides that, the food, the weather and the experiences were amazing! What did you do this summer? 🙂

I Frankrig brugte vi en hel aften på at gå ned ad Avenue de Champagne for at se på de smukke bygninger // We spent an entire evening walking down Avenue de Champagne to look at the beautiful buildings

På den sidste dag var vi forbi Moët et Chandon, og det var klart turens bedste oplevelse! // On the last day of our vacation we went to visit Moët et Chandon, and it was my favorite experience of the trip!

Vi opdagede ved et tilfælde at der var en “luftballon” i Epernay, og den skulle vi selvfølgelig prøve! // We discovered that there was a “hot air balloon” in Epernay, and of course we had to try it!

Lækre forretter på en restaurant i Frankrig. Sneglene var faktisk overraskende gode! // Delicious food at a restaurant in France. The snails were actually really good!

I juli tog jeg også en smuttur til Malmø med min mor og lillesøster // I also took a quick trip to Malmö with my mom and sister in July

En af de sidste aftener i juli blev brugt i Odense til en fantastisk Ed Sheeran koncert! // On one of the last days of July I went to the most amazing Ed Sheeran concert!

OOTD: Belated birthday

Som I måske ved, har jeg fødselsdag i marts, og hvis I har fulgt med på Instagram, så har I nok også set dette outfit før. Jeg faldt dog over disse billeder, da jeg kiggede mit SD igennem, og kom i tanke om, at jeg slet ikke har vist dem her på bloggen. Selvom det er fire måneder siden, skal I altså ikke snydes for det outfit, som jeg havde på til min fødselsdag! 😉

English: As you may know, my birthday is in March, and if you are following me on Instagram, you have probably already seen this outfit. I found these photos when I was looking trough my SD card, and I suddenly remembered that I hadn’t shown them here on the blog. Even though it has been four months, I wanted to show you my birthday outfit! 😉

New in: YSL bag!

Det er efterhånden ved at være noget tid siden jeg har lavet et “new in” indlæg, og det er altså fordi jeg har sparet op til denne taske. Jeg vidste, at jeg ville forkæle mig selv efter min bacheloropgave, og da jeg længe har kigget på de klassiske YSL Kate tasker, besluttede jeg mig for, at det skulle være sådan en. Jeg elsker min sorte Chanel classic flap, men da metallet på den er i guld, har jeg længe manglet en taske med sølvmetal. Jeg købte den faktisk samme dag jeg afsluttede min eksamen, og det var bare en vild følelse at kunne give mig selv sådan en gave for alt mit hårde arbejde. Hvad synes I om den? 🙂

English: It has been a while since I have done a “new in” post, but that’s because I have been saving up for the bag I am going to show you today. I knew that I wanted to spoil myself when I got my bachelor degree, and since I have been eyeing this bag for so long, I decided to finally get it. I love my black and gold Chanel classic flap bag, but I have been missing a black bag with silver hardware for a long time, so that’s why I went with the classic YSL Kate bag. I actually bought it right after my exam, and it was just an awesome feeling, that I could buy this bag for myself after all the hard work. What do you think of the bag? 🙂

June highlights!

Hej allesammen! Juni har været en super travl måned, men den har også været fantastisk! Jeg blev nemlig færdig med min bachelor i sidste uge, og det er så rart at være færdig! Vi fik fejret dagen med champagne og blomster, og om aftenen tog vi alle ud for at spise. Jeg kunne ikke ønske mig mere, og den dag var uden tvivl månedens højdepunkt! Hvad har I lavet i juni? 🙂

English: Hi everyone! June has been a super busy month, but is has also been an amazing time! I finished my bachelor degree last week, and it is such a great feeling to be done with that part of univeristy! We celebrated it with flowers and champagne, and later on we went out to eat. It was definitely the highlight of the month! What have you been up to in June? 🙂

En meget glad dame – nu med en bachelor i dansk og kommunikation! // One very happy lady – now with a bachelor degree in Danish and communication!

Der manglede bestemt ikke noget, da min familie kom for at fejre mig efter min eksamen // Got so spoiled when my family stopped by to celebrate after my exam

Bachelor-middag med hele familien på Madklubben Østerbro! // Bachelor dinner with my family at Madklubben Østerbro  Jeg havde bagt cupcakes til arbejdet for at fejre min eksamen. De fine sukkerprint er fra Kagedeko.dk // I brought cupcakes to work to celebrate my exam. The print on top is from Kagedeko.dk 

Jeg elsker, at vejret endelig er blevet til t-shirts og fine nederdele! // The Danish weather is finally giving me a chance to wear t-shirts and nice skirts!

Første negledesign i lang tid.. Der skulle selvfølgelig flamingoer på! // First nail design in a long time.. Of course I had to go with flamingos!

OOTD: Ladylike

For et par uger siden var jeg til min kusines konfirmation, og her var jeg så heldig, at min søde fætter havde lyst til at skyde et par outfitbilleder. Jeg var hoppet i en simpel mørkeblå kjole, og sammen med min Chaneltaske synes jeg, at det blev et fint, klassisk look. For at det ikke skulle blive alt for kedeligt, tog jeg dog også mine Valentino Rockstuds på, og de gav altså lige outfittet lidt ekstra kant. Hvad synes I om det? 🙂

English: A few weeks ago I went to my cousin’s confirmation, and one of my other cousins was so nice to shoot these photos of me. I wore a dark blue dress and my Chanel bag, which was a very classic look. To make sure it wasn’t too boring, I also wore my Valentino Rockstuds for the party, which made the outfit a bit more edgy. What do you think of this outfit? 🙂

May highlights!

Hej allesammen! Indlægget her kommer lidt sent, da jeg var super presset med min bacheloropgave i slutningen af maj. Nu kan jeg slappe af en smule, indtil jeg skal forsvare den om et par uger. Selvom jeg har været begravet i bøgerne det meste af maj, har der også været tid til sjov og afslapning, som I kan se her. Hvad har I lavet i maj? 🙂

English: Hi everyone! This post is a little late, since I was so busy with my bachelor project at the end of May. Now I can relax a bit for a few weeks, before I have the final exam. Even though I was studying for the most of the month, I also had some time to go out and have some fun, as you can see below. What have you been up to in May?

Jeg klager bestemt ikke over udsigten fra mit yndlings kaffested på toppen af Illum // Can’t complain about the view from my favorite coffee place at the top of Illum

Lækker frokost i Tivoli // Delicious lunch in Tivoli

Min søde veninde Louise fejrede sin fødselsdag på min yndlingsklub, og det kunne jeg selvfølgelig ikke sige nej til! // My sweet friend Louise celebrated her birthday at my favorite club, which I couldn’t say no to!

Norges nationaldag blev fejret med blomster i de norske farver // We celebrated Norway’s constitution day with flowers in the Norwegian colors

Min kærestes onkel er kok, og han kan bare lave nogle lækre retter! // My boyfriend’s uncle is a chef, so he always serves us the most amazing dishes!

 

OOTD: Spring sweater weather

Er jeg den eneste, der har været skuffet over vejret den her weekend? Kalendermæssigt er der under en måned til sommeren starter, men det føles altså ikke sådan! Derfor synes jeg, det er passende, at jeg deler dette outfit med jer i dag, selvom billederne faktisk er taget for over en måned siden. Jeg kunne sagtens hoppe i et par høje støvler og en striktrøje i dag, hvilket irriterer mig lidt.. Nu må sommeren gerne snart komme! Hvad synes I? Glæder I jer til at kunne hive sommerkjolerne frem, eller er I glade for at kunne gå rundt i strik og støvler i maj måned? 🙂

English: I’ve been so disappointed with the weather in Denmark this weekend. Summer is only one month away, but it doesn’t feel like it, since it is super cold in Copenhagen right now! It only seems appropriate that I share this outfit with you today, even though the photos were taken over a month ago. I could easily have worn boots and a sweater today, which is kind of annoying.. Can’t summer get here faster? Or what do you think? Are you excited about pulling out the summer dresses, or do you like to wear boots and sweaters? 🙂
