Since the beginning of our relationship, Mark and I have talked about getting a dog. We both love dogs and have both had dogs at our parents'. However, since we've always been travelling we figured that we would wait. After arriving home from Australia and New Zealand we figured, why not now? Meet the latest member of our little family: Leeroy (Jenkins anyone?!) He's a Pembroke Welsh Corgi - tricolor and ... Read More
It's 2017! In case you hadn't noticed... I started 2017 off with a BANG. Mark and I decided to go to a glamorous (to us at least) event at Blackbird Bar & Restaurant in Brisbane. It was five hours of open bar, delicious canapes and exciting music (both live and DJ) - by the end of which Mark had to carry be back home because my feet were killing me. However ... Read More
Celebrating Christmas in Australia was a very different experience, especially when you're from Denmark where Christmas is a huge event that is thoroughly celebrated. First of all, it's very hot in Brisbane at the moment, after all it's summer down here. Second of all, Christmas is always a family holiday (in my family anyways) and celebrating Christmas without them is a little strange - lucky that I have my boyfriend ... Read More
Merry Christmas Everyone I hope that you have had a great year and enjoy the holidays with your loved ones. I will be celebrating Christmas in Australia which will be a very different experience than celebrating with my family back in Denmark. However, I'm really looking forward to switching up the traditions a little bit and mixing the Danish with the Australian culture - it should be interesting. I have created ... Read More
Raining outside or just a bookworm? I fall under the latter category... To be honest, I haven't been reading as much as I used to when I was a teenager. The thing is that I don't take time out to relax and focus on just reading - I'm always doing ten things at once (or trying to). What I used to love about reading is the way that I immerse ...

So, I have been absent from my blog for quite a while now, but now I'm back! As I have written a couple of posts about, I recently moved to Brisbane, Australia to finish my Engineering degree and in the last couple of months uni suddenly got really intense. However, now I'm on summer break, which is very strange, when you're used to this time of year being winter. Luckily, ... Read More
I'm 26 and I think it's time... to start using eye cream. I guess you have to begin before actually seeing any changes in your skin so that's what I'm going to do. One of my all-time favorite skin care brand is Clinique however, I do not often buy it because it does cost more than what my student wallet can handle. I have tried their All About Eyes before and I ... Read More
In Australia it's spring - and that means spring break woo hoo (anyone else remembers that gem from Friends?) My plans for this week? Doing absolutely nothing... except focusing on DIY projects and I am so excited. That's why I kicked my Friday off my going on a mini shopping spree for things to be creative with. Any excuse to go shopping right?! 😉 I went to Typo (my favorite ... Read More
I love shopping! Especially online shopping, where I can sit at home or wherever and find things that I like without stressing. Another great thing about shopping online is that it is so easy to find great deals. In this post I will share with you, how I get the most out of my money when shopping online. It's not difficult, you just have to know where to look. 1 ... Read More
So, at least two awesome things happened this week: First, we went to see We Will Rock You here at QPAC in Brisbane and it was absolutely incredible. Second, I finally got my hands on the Harry Potter book! I am so excited about it and to be honest, when I first opened the book and read Harry Potter's name, I got a little tear in my eye... The stage ... Read More
Sometimes you just get lucky. We went to see the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra on Monday night after I won two tickets to the show along with a nights stay at the Sofitel hotel in Brisbane Central. The QPAC concert hall I had entered in a competition online and then forgotten about it. Then I received an e-mail saying that I was their winner and that I could pick up my tickets before ...

We found an apartment in the middle of Brisbane city. It's on the 27. floor and we have the most amazing view over the city. However, getting there took some time and a couple of really stressful days. This is our view over the city... Before we left for Australia I had booked us a couple of nights at a hostel. Even though I had spent several hours searching for apartments online I ... Read More
We have arrived in Brisbane and the first couple of weeks were spent acclimating to the Australian weather and culture. All in all the culture is not so very different from the Danish culture, but the weather is a whole lot better... The beautiful Treasury Hotel We stayed at Minto (hostel) which is located on the South side of the river in West End. From there we could easily walk ... Read More
So, projects have been a little slow lately because I have been working on something completely different: Moving to Australia. I am so excited and a little bit nervous - I mean, it's on the other side of the Earth. Getting my passport ready | Passport Cover from Etsy When I was 20 I went to Namibia (Africa) and then Australia as part of a gap year. In Namibia I did ... Read More
