A Thursday with Friends

Following our visit to Louisiana in Easter, we walked along the coast to visit our friends Thomas and Christabelle who have a cute house outside of Elsinore.
As we all have noticed, spring is making a late appearance this year and it was rather wintery for being the beginning of April, but we enjoyed the beautiful scenery nonetheless.

Thomas was building a little cottage behind their house, as they were expecting at the time some more room was needed.
Christabelle was as stylish as ever being 9 months pregnant and cooked excellent food as always.
The expecting parents, about two weeks later little Madeleine Isla-Rose was born, congratulations!

The Confessions of a Bibliophile – The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Another recent read is The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. The novel was film adapted last year, I have not seen it yet but heard it is worth watching.

The novel is set in the early 1990s and is narrated by “Charlie” through the letters he is writing to an anonymous stranger. Charlie is a freshman that is intelligent beyond his years and an unconventional thinker, although he is shy and unpopular in school. He reads a lot, mostly American classics that I myself have enjoyed reading and there were two books mentioned that I have put on my own reading list; The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand and Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs.

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

Easter Thursday we went to visit some friends in Denmark and decided to stop by the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebaek to see the new exhibition on pop art.

Hereby the exhibition as seen through our phones and subsequently on Instagram as cameras were not allowed in some parts of the museum. 
 Our dining-chairs on the wall, love Eames.
 Would love this over-sized lamp in our living room.
And we met an acquaintance from Guggenheim in Bilbao.

New in - Max Mara coat

My wonderful husband returned from the Alps carrying not just cheese and chocolate, but also a lovely coat that he found in the Max Mara store in Zürich. I love the graphic print in black and white and my husband is quite found of hounds tooth.

And how strange that I came home from Paris two days earlier with a fur collar that fits the coat perfectly, it was like we had planned it!  

Similar here, here and here.

Ulyana Sergeenko

Ulyana Sergeenko's a/w 2013 collection is breath-taking, and as a Russophile I love the Russian inspired outfits, some of the looks could be taken from how I imagined Anna Karenina.
Perfection to me who adores dramatic hats and gowns, and not to forget the sword! But what else can you expect when the designer herself dresses like this:

The Confessions of a Bibliophile – Prep

Mia, always a good source of book tips mentioned this book as one of the best she had ever read so I had to give it a try.
The book is Curtis Sittenfeld’s first novel and is about the teenage girl Lee Fiora from Indiana who has been accepted to a prestigious boarding school on a scholarship. The plot itself is rather thin, but the book deals with subjects such as growing up, self-identity and class distinctions in a very interesting way, which is why I would guess the book is so absorbing. I also found observant Lee quite relateable and amusing.

The Confessions of a Bibliophile - Shantaram

I am usually not fond of biographies, I rarely find someone’s life exciting enough to qualify for an interesting biography solely due to them being famous and that disqualifies the majority. Next comes the humble bragging consisting of people doing their best to appear modest while narrating their brilliancy.  
I was therefore slightly dubious when starting to read Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts but I was happy to be proven wrong. Not only has the author lived the life of former days’ adventurers, he is also void of hubris while telling his story. The book is quite a page-turner and an easy read while on vacation.
