Ever since we heard about the Louis Vuitton and Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama collaboration we've been going dotty over spots.
The collection brings Kusama's trademark colours and dot patterns into Marc Jacobs beautiful silhouettes making for an interesting and unique collection.

The August Bank Holiday weekend always signals the end of the Summer for me, not that we've seen much sun this year.
We managed a few days at the beach whilst in Denmark and it was just perfect with everything you need from a day by the sea - sandy sandwiches, sandcastles and sunscreen. So make the most of the weekend and wave goodbye to Summer 2012 :)

Love everything about this place, the food is amazing, the space is simple, the service is friendly. “Mad Synergi” is hidden away from the main streets of Vesterbro Copenhagen, it is another must visit for it’s top cuisine at affordable prices. Its owned by the two chefs Jeppe Grey and Henrik Junker, both with a history of working in Danish Michelin restaurants. Their vision is to offer great gastronomy in a more relaxed cafe style environment, where the prices are kept affordable, making great cuisine available outside the top Danish Restaurants. So if you’re felling peckish on you’re way around Copenhagen stop by here and enjoy :)
To find out more about "Mad Synergi" go to their website: www.madsynergi.dk

I always forget what a joy it is to be able to just jump on your bike in Denmark without worrying about the cars and buses. It gives me a sense of freedom that I always miss in London. The Danes are knowing for their great design and this bicycle shop is no exception. At the "Cykle Fabrikken" you can choose your own design from scratch from the colour of the frame to the seat. It's the most beautiful bicycle shop I have ever seen. A must visit if you're in Copenhagen and if you can't make it over there then check their website for inspiration for your next custom-made bike. http://www.cykelfabrikken.dk/

"Tour De Vesterbro". Vesterbro is a part of Copenhagen filled with the most wonderful, shops and coffee bars. First stop was Vaerndamsvej 5 Granola Coffee Bar. It's a must visit if you want a great coffee and a taste of how a cafe would have looked like in the 50'ties. The place is filled with original furniture and fittings from the 50'ties, make sure you sit outside so you can watch all the Danes pass by on their bikes....great place for people watching.
