These are a few of my favourite things!

Scandi escape!

I recently paid another visit to Copenhagen with some friends in order to beat the winter blues. Copenhagen is one of my favourite cities and it was great to see it in winter – a really different experience from the last time I was there. This post is mostly made up of photos from the trip and a few new discoveries! You can also check out my full Copenhagen guide on the blog.

It started to snow one night as we were walking back to our hotel. The city looked so beautiful and still. I loved this shot of the cobbles and shadows:

We used the excuse of cold weather to make an alarming number of pastry pit stops! Lagkagehuset is especially good.

Since we had been to Copenhagen before, and we are mildly obsessed with The Bridge (!), we decided to hop on the train to Malmö. It’s a  super fast and good train service from Central Station across the water. The weather wasn’t great that day so we we didn’t venture too far.

The Marimekko shop certainly brightened up our day though and I enjoyed having a look around. There was so much pattern and colour that you couldn’t possibly leave without a smile on your face and a skip in your step!

Back in Copenhagen, we paid a visit to cosy Mikkeller to warm up over a beer or two:

If you’re looking for a restaurant recommendation, check out Restaurant Kul. It’s a fantastic restaurant based in the Meatpacking district.

I loved their Pisco Sours (a little too much!) and their menu was perfect for sharing. I tried pretty much all of the fish dishes! They also served amazing steak platters if you prefer that kind of thing. I loved the atmosphere in the restaurant and styling was pretty cool too.

Check out the Danish open sandwich – absolutely delicious rye bread with wonderful fresh combinations:

If you’re a stationery and homeware addict like me, you’ll love Hay. I spent ages looking at their shelves of amazing products:
