Thursday I went to the opening of the new fashion outlet just outside Copenhagen in Høje Tåstrup, called CDO or Copenhagen Designer Outlet. The outlet is an extension of the existing shopping mall “City 2”.
The organizers behind this event, arranged for sweet alcohol-free drinks and sushi from one of my favorite sushi restaurants “Sticks and Sushi”. Also the beautiful danish celebrity blogger Ibi Støving, came and said a few words about her own blog that she runs with her husband Simon Makienok (a professionel soccerplayer). Their blog is called “Chrystal Kid and Baby Shark“. Ibi was there to tell about the effectfull use of videos in blogs.
After the intro (and the very tasty sushi 😜), we went behind the scenes to see the dressingroom the models use in connection with the fashion show. Some of the bloggers grabbed the chance, and acted as models for a while while trying the clothes on and having their picture taken by the model agency. I chose shortly after, to go out and have a look at the outlet instead.
CDO is the first fashion outlet in the greater Copenhagen area. In this mall you will find stores like Nike, Lacoste, Benedikte Utzon etc.
I think it is great that we finally have an outlet closer to Copenhagen, and I am sure there wont be a lack of customers there. Who doesn’t want to save some money 😏. I myself however really hate malls. They are noisy and I always miss a place to relax. I must say that I was excited to see that they actually gave it a thought, and created small booths around the place to relax – and let me tell you, a lot of people used them. Also I was pleased to see that the garbage bins included the possibility of sorting the trash. That’s a considerate touch that warms my heart.
By the way, the nice people behind this VIP event gave me a voucher worth DKK 300,- to use at CDO in Høje Tåstrup. If you are interested in winning this, please enter a comment on my Facebook page. I will find a winner during next week. Go ahead and share with your friends, and good luck.
Seriously the funniest video I have watched today. I know it’s old news but it is still funny 🙂
Today I found this post via a friend of mine, and I really have to shaw this with you guys. The post was originally written in spanish, and it is about getting old.
My dear girl, the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”… Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep.
When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad and don’t embarrass me. Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl?
When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology, give me the time to learn and don’t look at me that way … remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair and dealing with life’s issues every day… the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through.
If I occasionally lose track of what we’re talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t be nervous, impatient or arrogant. Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you.
And when my old, tired legs don’t let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked. When those days come, don’t feel sad… just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love. I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you … my darling daughter.

Yesterday I received a gorgeous new dress delivered by my postman. Last week Collectif had a big sale with 50% discount on everything to celebrate their new webshop. Unfortunately the servers crashed several times while I tried to shop, so all the dresses I wanted to buy, ended up being sold out. Luckily this baby was still available and of course I just had to wear it to work today. They did promise 28 degrees in Copenhagen ;).
Isn’t it lovely? I am absolutely in love <3
P.S. I already got 5 compliments on my Way to work – today is going to be a Good Day 🙂
