How to get ready for a photo shoot, when you are a zombie?

Some of you might know that I gave birth 2 months ago. From last Wednesday till this Tuesday, I was alone with my baby boy, because my boyfriend was shooting a music video in the Canary Islands. On top, I had my final oral defense exam before my Master Thesis at CBS yesterday. Today I had a photo shoot for the Danish dealsite Tilbud i Byen, so I had to look my best even though I was feeling (and looking!) like a zombie. This is what I did to ensure, I was ready for the shoot: Relax: Yesterday after my exam, I only did a few practical tasks at home and then relaxed on the couch...

He’s my Baby Boy

For those of you who don’t already know, I want to share some great news  (well at least for me personally) with you. A month ago on 8th of December I gave birth by C-section to the sweetest little baby boy. Everything went fine thanks to the professional staff at the hospital (Rigshospitalet) and we went home after two nights at the hospital. Today we went to a standard 5 week check up at our doctor with our little baby boy. He has gained a lot of weight, all of his reflexes are working just fine and the doctor complimented him a lot (#proudmommy).   Follow me on Instagram: @selshi

I have just received these funky jeans from Monki: Monki Kimono Eyes Jeans I really like the design and look forward to wearing them with a simple tee or knitted sweater for a casual look. I have also received these boots with cool details today: Zara boots   Follow me on Instagram: @selshi 

New In: H&M

I have been doing quite some online shopping lately. In the end of my pregnancy I did not find any real joy in shopping for clothes (ooh the horror! ; ) ). I just went for whatever looked ok and that I could fit into without getting a even bigger silhouette 😉 My velvet obsession might be slightly exaggerated at the moment!   Velvet body Velvet skirt Bodycon dress   Follow me on Instagram: @selshi

New In: &OtherStories

Some weeks ago I went shopping at Frederiksberg Centret. I was going to Copenhagen Business School to work on an exam project in entrepreneurship, but I couldn’t resist to go shopping first. &OtherStories iPhone 5 cover in blue velvet &OtherStories shirt with shooting stars  

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I hope you all had an amazing evening. I was at home with my boyfriend and my newborn babyboy.  We enjoyed a nice 3 course NYE dinner bought at Restaurant Asador here in Copenhagen. My boyfriend also had a cocktail menu to match the food. We watched the Queens New Year speech, listened to some music and danced a bit in our living room. At midnight we popped a bottle of Brut Crémant and had some kransekage (wreath cake).  It was a great NYE, but very different since we normally travel to some exotic places or celebrate with dinner and party together with some of our friends.   How did you celebrate...

New In: Teddybear leather jacket from H&M

Actually I wanted to buy this jacket in camel, but when I checked some days ago I couldn’t find it, so guess it is sold out. But sometimes things happens for a reason apparently, because this morning I realized that a black version was now available. I have been dreaming about the classic black Velocite shearling jacket from Acne since forever (or so it seems), but I guess I have to be a bit realistic sometimes (not that I’m very good at that particular task 😉 ). I’m pregnant with a little babyboy (due 18 December), still a student (going to write my Master Thesis next year) and working freelance (projects of my own and...

New In: ZARA Shopping in Rome

New In: Casual pinstripe suit from H&M

Sorry for the silence here, but I’ve been busy with my new semester at Copenhagen Business School and attending a lot of relevant events and workshops about social media, online marketing, copywriting etc.  Also being pregnant means a lot of appointments with hospitals, midwife, doctors etc., so my calendar is my best friend at the moment. So what to wear, when you are a business woman and student, but also pregnant and you just want to be comfortable? One of my best suggestions is this casual pinstripe suit in navy/white from H&M.   This suit is not completely new, but I couldn’t find it online last time I checked. I almost live in this suit...

My weekend

From Thursday to Saturday (yesterday), I’ve attended two birthdays, one birthday / launch of a crowdfunding campaign and a wedding. Today I am beyond tired, so I’ve just been preparing a bit for next week (when my semester at CBS begins) and relaxing with pizza, lemonade and Narcos season 2 on Netflix. Dress: Ganni. This was my outfit yesterday, when I went to a friend’s birthday at La Fontaine here in Copenhagen to listen to some live jazz music.

New In: For Fall

So Wednesday I did a little shopping. I’m currently preparing my wardrobe for Fall/Winter. Jacket: H&M I couldn’t find the jacket in the right size, so after hunting it in 3 different H&M stores here in Copenhagen, I ended up buying it online instead : )   Ribbed jumper: H&M Ribbed flounced turtleneck: H&M Mona turtleneck: Gina Tricot Fall, I am almost ready for you!
