What I've been up to lately

Hiyah all!
Oh how time flies! There are a lot of balls in the air at the moment, so keeping up with the blog has been set aside a little lately. However, I refuse to go totally MIA so I thought I'd tell you a little bit about what I've been up to lately:

Well first of all, last week I had mock written exams. In Danish they're called "Terminsprøver" and basically, they are a test of a test. This year I have both English and Danish on A levels, which means that I have both an oral and a written exams. The written ones you have to "try out" (( Terminsprøver )) first, so that you'll know how they work - and also, they give you a chance to get better prepared for the real ones. Last Monday and Tuesday I had mine; Danish on Monday and English on Tuesday. I think they went well, but getting ready for them was quite a bitch - which you can see in the picture above . . .

. . . and Tuesday at around 3 PM, after the English Terminsprøve was over, I finally went on "vacation" - this year I stayed home from Sweden, since it would've been a long trip for only a few days there - mega bummer! But oh well, I've enjoyed myself at home. After the written mock exam, I went out for a coffee and a chat with my friend Sascha. We've got our own little placed called Kaffekilden - basically it's Central Perk (( from Friends )) in Roskilde and they make the best cuppa coffee money can buy!

Even though it's officially vacation time for me, I've found myself with a book in my hands every day! I'm reading up on old Danish literature on Feminism from the 70's, which is really interesting! At the start of May I have to do a paper for school, and luckily we had the opportunity to pick the subject ourselves - and since I'm really interested in Danish Feminism in the 70's, that was the subject I chose. At first I was a little bummed out over having to read and read and read, but it really turned out to quite cool . . .  

. . . and since the weather has been absolutely fantastic (( ! ! ! )) this Easter, I've been sitting outside, drinking coffee, chain-smoking and just read book after book - which resulted in actually getting through that whole pile of books in just 4 days! Awesome!

Beautiful days turns into beautiful nights
- look at that night sky! Isn't it just amazing? Even though my apartment is right above a parking lot, I still have a lovely view to the right: The little lake and just a wide open sky. I tell you, there's nothing like sitting by the window with a cuppa tea and a ciggy and just watch the night sky turn darker and darker. 

I've been good with money these past couple of months, so at the start of April I did some net-shopping. 
I bought 10 dresses, some hair clips and these little lovelies. Now I'm ready for Spring and Summer, and as a plus I can wear something new every day for a long time! 

And the last picture is just a happy one! It's been so hot lately, so all of my plants (( I have around 35 in my studio apartment ! )) are just growing like crazy. I can't imagine not having a little green in the house; plants and flowers are just a fantastic source for a happiness! 

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

So that's a little of what I've been doing lately - basically just living life. 
I hope all of you had a great week and a lovely Easter. 
See you when I see you

Exactly one year ago today...

Well well well, as I live and breathe - it sure has been a while since I've said hi.
So hi there, how are y'all doing?

I'll tell you how I'm doing:
Exactly one year ago today I wrote this post on my annual Sound of Music evening.
True to form, I've lit a bunch of candles, I'm eating cheesy toasties and - of course - I'm watching Sound of Music.

Yes, already a year has passed since last I saw this wonderful movie - oh how time flies!
If you've followed f&f over the last couple of years, you'll probably know that watching
Sound of Music is an annual ritual for me (( as proved by the pictures below )) .
If you're curious what I wrote in the previous years' posts, you can find them here (( 2012 )) and here (( 2013 )) .

But yes, it sure has been a crazy and wonderful year - and now, here we are again.
A lot of things have changed, a lot of things have stayed the same
- for one thing, I personally think I'm way better at taking and editing photos now . . .
. . . wonder how it'll be in a year from now (( haha )) ?

Well, I'm off again - it's time to smile and  time to sing . . .
. . . Cheers!

Mix it up in the kitchen

Hello on such a wonderful day!

Loads of kitchen stores provide the actual kitchen, but the personal touches and coziness... well, those you have to come up with yourself.
So why not get inspired by this lovely white kitchen, witch has a wonderful mix of black, green, gold, brass and wood.

Have a lovely day - remember to smile
