The people were pretty, the style was on point, the beverages were aplenty but the food, more importantly- the breakfast was on point. As I mentioned here we stayed in Nørrebro, a chic hipstery neighborhood, akin to the Mission for all my SF readers. It had a bevvy of boutiques, bars and breakfast places like Meyers Bageri. There are only two Meyers pastry shops in the world, one in New York City and one in Copenhagen so you better believe we were going to brave the lines and grab a Danish or two.
After our first trip to Meyers we were hooked! The Tebiekes- poppy seed covered, marzipan filled, flaky layered pastry were even better than I expected, and my personal favorite. We also tried plum and cheese tarts, and real Danish. A few mornings we decided to bring home pastries and eat in our insanely cute AirBNB. It was the perfect way to fuel up for the days adventures in a relaxing and comfortable environment.

If you are in SF I'm hosting an event in SF tonight 9/23 at Les Lunes 5-7pm.  Hope to see you there!

a blogger's travel guide to Copenhagen



Copenhagen is one for the books, folks. As I mentioned last week I didn't know what to expect when we chose Copenhagen as our first leg in a three week tour of Europe. I think perhaps that made it all the better when we found ourselves in a minimalist Danish dream. I have shared what I wore here, and my must-know tip: Birkenstock's are everywhere — love them, rock them. Today I'm sharing what to do, where to stay, what to eat and everything else to do while you are visiting Copenhagen as a blogger or at least someone who is obsessed with documenting the moment, ie. Instagramming life!

Where to Stay: Air BNB it! Copenhagen has an abundance of chic apartments. Make like a local and live like one in their abode. We got really lucky and found a spot in the very trendy neighborhood of Nørrebro. It was a minimalist dream, Scandinavian chic and perfectly decorated.

Where to Eat: Meyer's Bageri for their fresh baked bread and Danish- try the poppy pastry. Dürüm Bar for amazing shawarma, GRØD for yummy but fancy oatmeal, and food market eats at Torvehallerne and Copenhagen Street Food.

Coffee: The craft coffee movement is alive and kicking in Copenhagen, and The Coffee Collective might be winning at the game.

Cool Neighborhoods to hangout in and shop: Nørrebro, and Blågårdsgade— have a great mix of boutiques to pick up a nice souvenir to bring back home. See what I picked up in a men's shop here!

Bars: Mikkeller and Friends- with 40 different beers on tap you are sure to find something to suit your beer sipping taste, makes for a pretty picture too. For a pint of some local ale, try Koelschip for yummy Belgium beer in a romantic, dimly lit, attic-sized spot.  

Shopping: Everywhere, but Torvehallerne is where I went when I wanted Danish spices and kitchen wares, pick up lunch while you are there and order a nice glass of rosé while you are waiting. Yes, you can have your beverage while shopping for produce as witnessed here.

This Summer I hopped around Europe for a few weeks with my husband and our first stop was in Copenhagen. To be honest I didn't know what to expect. Upon arrival I was floored, it was out of a chic Scandinavian fairy tale, my first observation was that everything was pristine, chic and minimal- even our Air BNB was a dream- see IG for proof. My second observation was that everyone wears Birkenstocks or sneakers, so I made like a local and pulled out my Birks.

Never say never, right? A saying we all have said at least a few times. That was me exactly a month while doing some prep shopping for our European vacation. Cue scene: I popped into a Forever 21, not in the best mood, thinking I'm just going to look, mind you it's been ages since I've stepped into a F21 let alone purchase an item from there. Perhaps it was the bad mood, maybe I was looking to make myself feel better? But out of nowhere this print is shoved in a rack with 45 other items all different prints and this one for some reason caught my eye. When I pulled it off the rack I just couldn't believe my luck, a gorgeous mini ruffle mock neck, a keyhole neckline with ribbon tie-ups AND the insane bell sleeves. This time around I put aside my pretension about Forever 21, sucked it up, found another cute mini dress and headed right to the register.
