I admit that I´ve this weird habit of looking around at the things people display in their homes. I guess one could somehow get to know a little bit more about the owner of the house by the way they decorate their home. Every little objects tells a story and rather personal to them. I just can´t help myself from taking photos of the home that I been invited to. Especially if I´m visiting friend´s summer house in Denmark, part of the excitement from receiving the invitation is thinking that which lens or which camera should I have with me – and that´s before I even ask for permission to take photos of their interior decor. These photos were shot during my recent visit to my dear friends summer house this summer. I won’t mention their names since I “forgot” to ask them if I could post these photos on my blog. (Ops!)
This week I worked at MAC Cosmetics counter at Magasin Kongens Nytorv. Just like a little kid at the candy store, I went completely super exited working with all the MAC products – mega selection of eyeshadow colours, textures, foundations, highlighters and beauty tools ect. One of my favorite item is the MAC Pigments; highly concentrated loose colour powder which creates an intense effect. Use it alone or mix & match a couple of colours really gives me the possibility to use my creativity in making a great eye makeup. The photo below is an application I did this week on one of MAC customer. You should drop by at the counter and try out all these amazing products!
Recently I did a bridal makeup all the way up in the north of Denmark. Since this is a “whole package” of bridal makeup service, I stayed all throughout the wedding and was also invited to attend the wedding dinner. Besides the funny songs and personal speeches, what I enjoy the most when attending a Danish wedding is the kissing tradition. It began during the early 1970s and it being in practice until today. During the dinner party, whenever the groom leaves the room – to the gents or taking photo – all the men in the room rush over and queue up to kiss the bride and whenever the bride leaves the room, all the women rush over to kiss the groom. Whenever the guests banging fork or knife on the plate, the wedding couple have to climb onto their chairs and kiss! When the guests stamp their feet, the pair have to kiss under the table. There are many other traditions carried during the ceremony such as throwing the rice, cutting the socks ect. If you ever getting an invitation to a Danish wedding, don´t miss it!
Here are the photos from the wedding:
I walk past the Danish Parliament building almost everyday on my way to work. I live just about 250 meter from this historical building and I must say that I´m a lucky person to have a home address in this area because I appreciate the architecture of this magnificent building – the centre of Danish democracy.
The History of Christiansborg
Christiansborg Palace as it stands today is only the most recent of a succession of five buildings that have occupied the islet of Slotsholmen in Copenhagen for more than 800 years. For centuries, one building has been succeeded by the next as a consequence of wars, modernisations and fires.
The Danish Parliament
The Danish Parliament is located in Christiansborg Palace on the Castle Islet, “Slotsholmen”, a small island in Copenhagen harbour in the heart of the city. Christiansborg Palace is the centre of Danish democracy, and Members of Parliament use most of the rooms in the building as offices and meeting rooms.
