Danish favorite for breaky and afternoons: mum’s porridge

Sunday morning, everybody is so lazy in my house, including me... that I finally get a bit of time to be relaxed after a busy week. All I want is to take it easy and do everything slow ahahahaha. In DK breakfast means porridge also since you are little kid. I love it and this is just one of my versions. Para meus leitores em portugues: Domingo de manha, todo mundo esta super preguicoso na minha casa, incluindo eu mesma... que Read More...

Rome, Eternal Rome!

I started gathering the pictures for this post and automatically all the memories were so alive and present that I could even feel the smell of the coffee at the bars and hear the noise of the cups, the people asking for their coffees and cappuccini, the scooters, or "i motorini" and the ambulances... they are so loud! Yes, when you go to Rome just go prepared to experience loudness that you won't easily forget. Para meus leitores em portugues: Eu Read More...

Awesome Health Food Store and Cozy Cafe’ in Frederiksberg

Last Saturday I visited the super nice Urtehuset in Frederiksberg. Urtehuset is a complete and clever health food store with an awesome cafe' attached to it. Many of us, I mean, foreigners living in Denmark don't know that we can find excellent health food stores in Copenhagen. I'm in many groups of foreigners in Facebook, and often someone asks where they could find this or that natural organic vegetarian or vegan product but they have no clue where to Read More...

A Lovely Visit to the National Museum Of Denmark

If you love museums like me, here starts a lovely journey for you: The National Museum of Denmark! It's just so large and complete that you really will be amazed.

Para meus leitores em portugues: Se voce gosta de museus como eu, entao qui comeca uma maravilhosa Read More...

Seventies, Flowers and Hippie Vibe for the Spring

Everywhere you go, the same vibe: the seventies are back...well, not really. I believe they were never gone anyways! In Copenhagen this vibe is always present everywhere. We cannot forget that here is the land of Christiania and that says everything. And we all love Christiania! Here there's always this nice mix of seventies, boho, hipster, vintage, old fashioned and super modern all together... you can choose the look according to your mood that day. Para meus leitores em portugues: Todos Read More...

Fun Saturdays at the Frederiksberg Flea Market

Spring arrived and the city starts getting even busier with all the events on open air. Guess where I was on Saturday? Of course! Yes, in the super crowded and beautiful Frederiksberg Flea market! It's just so close to my house and the place is fantastic! It's located in the City Hall Square, or Frederiksberg Rådhusplassen in Danish. We got there very early and the weather was good which means not so much rain or excessive cold... ahahahaah, and Read More...

Beyond Chocolate with blue and raspberries fudgie cake

There's nothing new about people and the love for cakes. Yes, but Danes love them more! Their love for cake goes beyond the so called normality and any excuse is a good one to have their beloved "kage" (cake in Danish). "Kaffe og kage" is a must when you meet Danes in the afternoon. The cafes in Copenhagen are specialized in serving you the best cakes ever! They are ready for the demanding and high taste customers. Danes know Read More...

Copenhagen Cycle Chic Girl

There's no question of talking about Danish style or fashion without talking about the bikes and how much it's important in our daily lives. Bikes and cycling are part of life here and everyone does it, no matter who, even the Royal family. The royals here have just normal life like any other Dane. And normal life here means you have a bike and you use it every day! Para meus leitores em portugues: Nao se pode falar em estilo dinamarques Read More...

Time for Coffee and Danish Pastry

This post has a sentimental meaning for me. Coming from a baker family, I tend to love bakeries... hahaha. But besides that, Denmark is famous for it's pastry and everybody knows that. So, I'm not being any partial here. This post has a meaning for me because I started loving the real Danish pastry when I stepped for the first time inside this super cool and popular bakery called Lagkagehuset (don't try to pronunce it...it's not gonna work if Read More...
