5QQ’s to the divalicious painter/artist Paul Enøe Johansson

Ohh – you Divalovers are in for a treat now! Let me introduce the Danish painter Paul Enøe Johansson.

Paul is quite a new friend of mine. I know Paul from my local gym (Yeah – when I actually get my act together, lift my fat butt from the couch, and go there), and I always enjoy his company. We both love art and photographing, so it is really nice to have someone interesting to talk to in between the sweats.

His paintings are really awsome. I mean really really divalicious! On top of that he made quite a name of himself on the Danish art scene. You can see some of his work here!

Some of my personal favorites are the “Shelf pictures” as seen here.

You can mix and match the as you please, which is an idea I really love.

AND they are really hot 🙂 !!!

Here we go….

Happy reading Divalovers!

1) What do you do for a living and why?

Besides from being a painter, I am a teacher. It would supposedly be a shame for the students, if I wasn’t. I feel that I fill up an important place…

2) Who/what inspires you (and why)?

I’m inspired when interacting with other people. I can’t do many things alone. Also I am a dialectician …

3) What is your passion in life, and what makes you happy?

I am an intellectual and I absolutely love the dialogue. The combination of a woman and a talent is my passion, and that is what really inspires me in my paintings!

4) What is the best advice you would give your younger self #Dearyoungme?

I did the right thing when I was focused, and fought all the odd goals. I have been a good woodsman/lumberjack, a powerful semi-skilled worker at the B&W, a brave andobliging professional fisherman, a fast paperboy, an exciting workshop leader for the youth in a club, a avid writer author with important educational, political, and ethical messages, etc, etc.

Finally, now I am a painter as a hobby that fills the empty moments and keeps the heavy thoughts from everyday life in a distance …

5) What are your dreams and goals for the future?

My goals for the future are few and small …. I’m a very happy man!

I just hope I will always treat my wife decent, and I hope my body stays in shape till the end <3

Fred Perry goes “Back to Black” Amy Winehouse style

Houndstooth are HOT!

As you can read above (from Fred Perry’s homepage), Fred Perry has decided to launch the AW11 Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry collection. I absolutely adore this collection and I gotta find some money for shopping an item or 2. Not that Im a huge fan of Amy, but as some of you know, Im a huge fan of this 50’ies/Mad Men style.

Asos.com also has some of the SS11 collection left – You can shop it here!

What do you think?

————–

Efter store overvejelser, og med godkendelse fra Amy Winehouse’s efterladte, har Fred Perry valgt at frigive AW11 “Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry” kollektionen. Stilen er totalt fed, og lur mig om jeg ikke skal spare op til en enkelt eller 2 af disse ikoniske designs? Ikke fordi det er Amy, men fordi jeg er en sucker for 50’er stilen 🙂

Asos.com har en del tilbage fra SS11 kollektionen – du kan se og købe den her!

Hvad siger i til disse?

Vogue Leading a Sick Fashion World – I AM FURIOUS!!!!

This is sick sick sick.

I am completely harmed and furious about Vogue presenting small girls like this in a sexual way. I always LOVED Vogue, but this is really creepy, and a sign of The Fashion World loosing every contact with reality.

I have 2 small girls, and I don’t want them to grow up in a world where sick pedophile bastards can satisfy their sick needs in a public way like this! Not in fashion or any other industry.

Mom’s everywhere – please stand together in protest for the sake of our innocent kids! Write Vogue and show them how sick this kind of fashion articles are.

Domestic Diva training

Just came back from the gym. This is my kind of motivation. As a diva I DO care about my looks though God somehow chose to make keeping your figure more complicated the older you get. Hard work diva’s – hard work! Now hitting the shower whilst trying to get the kids to clean up their mess (I know I know, but I still have the hope I will succeed in that someday)

Have a lovely day Diva’s

Copenhagen Photo Festival

Så er det i dag udstillingen “2200 Hverdagsritualer” åbner. Det foregår kl. 12 på Dronning Luises Bro, og jeg er spændt til bristepunktet.

Flere af mine billeder er udvalgt (de kan desværre ikke give mig mere info). Er de ikke at finde langs Nørrebrogade, så er de udvalgt til bogen der udkommer senere på sommeren.

Forståes at jeg er spændt som en flitsbue, så jeg hopper nu ned i mine Bikkemberg’s og forbereder mig på en lang vandring på Nørrebronx. Glæder mig som et lille barn til at se alle de flotte fortolkninger af hverdagen på Nørrebro.

CU later – skal nok komme med en mere uddybende fortælling om oplevelsen 🙂

Suburbia Domestic Diva Shopping

Totally fell in love with this lingerie. Gotta love suburb outlets – especially when they have thing in my size. Would have bought a lot more if they had the right sizes <3

Now "Amour Amour" from Buddha Bar and straight to bed. Moving closer to Copenhagen tomorrow. Country life over and out <3
