December 18th: Quality time


As we speak I’m on my way to the radio city hall to watch the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular with my family. A very Christmasy night the New York way. Edward and I also saw it last year, but it certainly has potential to become a tradition and something to do at Christmas time every year.

Speaking of December activities, yesterday I had such a wonderful Sunday. I had invited Mie up for brunch (made sure to earn some extra points with her by making her favorite avocado toast with soft boiled eggs and a some salty and crispy bacon) and a little work afterwords. She, a finals for her almost done semester at Columbia University. Me, content for the rest of December since I’ve decided to blog every day. And vlog. I’m very excited and very busy. Hope you are too (excited that is!).

After a good amount of work we headed to Central Park as we had decided to do some ice skating! It turned out that the rest of New York City has decided to do so as well. The ice rink was so busy. So instead we decided to eat a warm pretzel and go for a walk around the park. It’s pretty magical at this time of year.

Mie is going back to Denmark soon, so it’s so important for me to spend some quality time with her before she’s gone. I can’t beli how fast time flies, when you’re with people you love.

December 10th: Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow


And then it started snowing in New York City!

I woke up so excited. I had bought snow boots on Friday after work to be properly ready for the snow I had heard about, but didn’t really believed would actually come (you know, they always say it’s gonna snow, and it never arrives). The snow makes everything feel so festive and magical. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

We actually went out in the snow to buy a bike for me, so that I can bike to and from work, but I guess I’ll wait a little bit before I do that. I don’t mind though, this is so cozy!

Happy Sunday guys.



December 7th: In Gossip Girl

sleepnomore1Today I’m coming at you with a New York experience to add to your NYC to-do list. Any Gossip Girl fans out there? Yes? You know that episode where Serena, Blair, Nate etc walk around with a white mask on in something that looks like a scene from a freaky play?

Last night I wondered off to the McKittrick Hotel with Mie for a night of immersive and mystical theater. Mie had convinced me to go, not knowing at all what I had said yes to. We were handed a playing card which would decide the destiny of our entrance to the play. Then a mask. Inside it was dark, dramatic music was playing, and actors were taking us around the rooms of the hotel as the story developed. When we came out we were met with live 1920’s jazz music and great drinks.

 It was such a cool night that completely made me forget about everything else!

Going to New York in December? 10 festive things to do in the Big Apple!


New York is magical at this time of the year. I want to say it’s my favorite time. Although everyone seems extra busy, there’s also a certain Holiday cheer on the streets. Music, cute outfits, people warming up on a hot chocolate, decorations. I love it. And if you find yourself in New York City for the holidays, here’s a list of festive events for you and your family!

1. Go see the giant Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center, if you didn’t get to read my post about the tree lighting yesterday, let me just tell you: This is definitely a New York Christmas must!

2. “Sea of Light” at South Street Seaport. This is a new interactive art installation powered by 150,000 LEDs. Opening on December 5th (and there’ll be live music and free mulled wine, yaaaas!)

3. Amateur Night Holiday Special at Apollo Theater! I’m definitely going to this one. I’m a sucker for Christmas music, and I’m a sucker for singers that gives me the chills. This will go on December 9th and you can buy tickets right here.

4. Columbus Circle Holiday Market right at the entrance to Central Park. This is one of my favorite parts of Manhattan. The mix between giant buildings and the beautiful park just does it for me. And a Holiday Market right here is just a big ol’ win win.


5. Holiday Train Show at New York Botanical Gardens! Model Locomotives ride among familiar sights such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, and Rockefeller Center on nearly a half-mile of track. It looks pretty epic! Here more here.

6. The Nitehawk Cinema is showing old Chirstmas movies! When watching them at home (or in your hotel) just doesn’t quite do it, head to this cinema on 36 Metropolitan Avenue in Brooklyn, for some hygge! Check out their show schedule here.

7. “Unsilent Night” on December 17th. This is a magical participatory concert that goes from East to West Village lead by Composer Phil Kline. Again, I. Must. Go! Read more here.

8. Drink Glögg at the Great Nothern Foodhall. This is a tradition of mine. Just because no one really knows how to do Glögg other than Danes. Visit the Great Nothern Foodhall’s Facebook page here.


9. Shake Shack has rolled out seasonal shakes! Frozen Cocoa, Christmas Cookie, and Chocolate Peppermint.

10. Fancy-pants holiday brunch at Tavern of the Green in Central Park. A three-course brunch with live entertainment!

Happy December guys! If you have any other festive activites to do in the New York area, let me know down below!

Happy December! 🎄

743111f3-36bd-4a1c-8a51-90867f8b7377And then it was December 1st. I’ve been looking forward to this day for about two months now (or actually more like last year), listening to Christmas music, decorating the apartment, wearing the classic red lip, and baking loads of Christmas cakes and cookies. So much fun!

Wednesday night I went to the big tree lighting at Rockefeller Center by Fifth Avenue. I was lucky to get VIP passes to the front because Edward worked the event. So there I was singing along to Hark the Herald, Noel, I’ll Be Home for Christmas, and many more classics performed by among others Pentatonix, Gwen Stefani (didn’t know she was still a thing), and Leslie Odeon Jr. I was first row to the huge tree standing tall in Manhattan’s skyline, and just counted down the hours to the lighting. It was definitely freezing, but it was as magical.

Happy first December guys! May your day be merry and bright.
