Did you know that today January 26 is India’s national day? I didn’t before that I was invited to a delicious dinner at the Verandah! Last Thursday I took my boyfriend by the arm and we walked down to The Standard, which among others, also houses the Indian restaurant Verandah.
We were greeted by a smiling staff and started with a delicious drink and papadums. I love ginger and the drink sour Quinine was filled with it! After a long working day, I could quickly feel it . We dived into our 3 course theater menu + wine menu, which started with scallops and a delicious glass of white wine, yummy. The lovely part was, that between each dish, there was a in between dish! After first course, a little rice ball arrived and a short glass with soup before the main course – which in my case was different squash plants in a delicious sauce, while my boyfriend got Ambot Tik Pork. There were a lot of great accessories, favorite naan bread, sprouts salad – Verandah is contemporary pan-Indian food with an emphasis on regional, seasonal produce, therefore sprouts – potatoes in tomato sauce, basmati rice, lens sauce and vino.
Then came the final, first some mango icecream, which was a pre-dessert dish – I think there should always be a pre-desset – and then the dessert, which was an Indian cake with coconut ice cream and a glass of bubbles, and finally a some tasty nuts and chai tea. The place is very finely decorated with small mirrors, pretty sofas, soft lighting and a look to the water. Definitely worth a visit!
Here are a few things from my desk . I’m loving rose gold currently, the bracelet with stones from Dyrberg/Kern and the other is from H&M. I also found this cool marble plate in Magazine, it is perfect for layering my jewellery! For inspiration, I love looking in The Sartorialist’s book, it is filled with interesting personalities and outfits. It is not exactly high season for flowers, but found these fun cabbage flowers at the local florist, love the green and purple hues.
It was so wonderful to see the sweet blogger girls, Simone, Sandra, Betina, Cecilia, Christina & Terese Friday! We started with some bubbles and got ready at my Beauty Academy CPH, so cozy with makeup and music! Then we went to the Tapasbaren, where we met with lovely Nadialine and Stephanie. Yummy, we got small treats and some more bubbles, before heading out into the nightlife. I only had a small headache the day after . Hope you also had a lovely weekend ❤.
At the moment I’m loving wearing all white! Sstyled with a some cool pumps and a bag from FR//S and my new coat from Asos. I usually work on Sundays, here you get even more done, because the phones are usually quiet . Then I pamper myself with some fresh flowers, a Vogue or Cosmo magazine, and a warm latté.
This evening I’m excited to see a lot of beautiful girls stopping by my Beauty Academy CPH, can’t wait for a dance or two! Have a fab weekend everyone ❤
Happy New Year everyone! Hope you have had a good start into 2015 . Here at my office, I’ve been busy with work and exciting new projects. I’m not good at sitting still, and besides e.l.f. Cosmetics, Beauty Academy CPH and the blog, I’m working on new thing. I can soon reveal more, and I am really looking forward to this new year.
The new year also means reflection and thoughts on the past year. The end of a year and the beginning of a new one, I think it’s always filled with both melancholy and excitement. Melancholy because time goes by so fast, you got achieve what you wanted? What will the future bring? Excitement because it is up to you to achieve the goals you set out. Big dreams, requires hard work, but you can achieve everything you want!
Do you have any New Year’s resolutions? Mine is to be even more positive, one of my employees said; “Can you be more any more positive?” Implied that she thinks I am always happy and positive . And yes I am for the most part, but you can always improve! One’s thought pattern just rolls along, often in much of the same and many of you know it yourself. You can fill his head with “What if it fails?”, “What if it goes wrong?” and so on.
I try every day to fill my head with positive energy and thoughts. Without being super spiritual, I believe that the energy you emit means a lot to the people you surround yourself with. Therefore it is important that what you think, also is what you radiate. To rest in your own skin, have energy and a enjoying life.
