This weekend my friend Katie and I decided to do culture and visited the Serpentine Pavilion, this year designed by Selgascano. We played for a bit, marvelled at it’s shiny insides and took some polaroids of us looking baffled then headed off to Sticks & Sushi for some chow. It’s really cool and colourful and we expect its great lit up at night.

My sister and I were craving a Copenhagen fix last month, so last weekend that’s exactly where I found myself – we don’t mess around. What we love so much about Copenhagen is that you can walk or cycle so much of it, which means we were able to squeeze a lot into three days. We were blessed with sun all weekend – thank you very much Mr Weather Man – which made the walking a lot more bearable, and was made all the more easy with pit stops for danish pastries at Lagkagehuset and sunny afternoons spent in the atrium at the Glyptoteket.
Shopping is always good to break up the day, as well – I’ve been wanting to go to Hay House for some time. It’s a showroom in the centre of CPH: you’re welcomed into the heavenly world of Hay and are able to buy hand-luggage friendly knick-knacks from their Mini-Market, which of course I did.
Atelier September – Probably my favourite place in Copenhagen. We had breakfast here on Sunday morning – it was our second visit (we’d been in briefly on a previous trip). It’s the calmest, trendiest cafe, with beautiful interiors and an even more beautiful dog that hangs out and sits at your feet while you eat. Atelier September are known for their unusual food. I had yogurt with zucchini, granola and matcha – sounds scary, but it was deliciously sweet. My sister also recognised one of our fellow diners as fashion designer Olivier Theyskens, who has designed for Rochas, Nina Ricci and Theory. We were pretty pleased, to say the least – I got told off by my sister for staring. I thought I was being discreet!
Lagkagehuset – Head here for the best pastries and snegls – you’ll find one of these dreamy bakeries in various street corners around the city. I particularly love their chocolate cinnamon buns, but a flødeboller never goes a miss, either.
The Ny Carlsberg Glyptoteket, Dantes Plads 7 – This is an art museum built around the personal collection of Carl Jacobsen, the son of the founder of the Carlsberg Breweries. There are infinite rooms filled with white sculptures, and a garden and cafe at the centre of the museum. They also have a great rooftop view of Tivoli.
Rundetaarn, Købmagergade 52A – The Round Tower is a structure in the centre of CPH I’ve passed many a time, but we decided to venture in on this visit, were led up a spiralling tower with lovely views at the top, and an art gallery, too.
Hay House, Oestergade 61 – The most beautiful interior showroom, which I could have moved into there and then. Their signature scandi design is minimal yet colourful, and I pretty much want it all. You can find the Hay Mini-Market in Selfridges in London if you can’t get to CPH.
Stilleben, Niels Hemmingsens Gade 3 – Stilleben translates to ‘still life’ in English. It’s a homes store, and everything it stocks qualifies as cool.
Designers Remix, Pilestræde 8D – There’s not much I can say apart from that I want everything in here – me and my sis spent a while drooling over the insanely pretty pleats.
Me and my sister were both sporting our trusty Pumas, coat. I’m also wearing a patterned scarf from & Other Stories, bag from Beck Söndergard, sunglasses from Illesteva, J.Crew white shirt with Bamford jumper and Topshop trousers.
There’s so much to do in Copenhagen – thats not all we got up to! Part two on the way…
