Werq The World 2018!

Saturday night was the day that my friend Simone and I went to the Werq The World show here in Copenhagen. For people who don’t know what it is, it’s a drag show with queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race, that do a world tour.
So, this year the queens that were here in Copenhagen were:

Shangela
Kim Chi
Sharon Needles
Latrice Royale
Kennedy Davenport
Violet Chachki
Valentina

Of course, we had VIP tickets with meet and greet, like always, but we were a bit disappointed with the meet and greet this time. There wasn’t time enough to meet and get a photo with all the queens and for the first time we were only allowed to take one photo. That’s why I haven’t got as many pictures and some of them aren’t as good as the other years.

We had a good time and the show was also good and we had first row seats, so the view was perfect!

If you want to see my snap story from that night, here it is:  

Too Hot!

Yesterday it was too hot for Indira’s and my taste, it was 27 degrees Celsius. I’m not sure if we had a day as hot last year? But we need a fan to cool down, if it keeps being that hot.

I’m really looking forward to the weekend where I’m going to the Werq the World show with queens from Drag Race. It’s going to be fun, but I still don’t know what to wear!?!

Hopefully the weather won’t be as hot today, so I can get things done.

 


 

Drag show and work.

Daniel and I had Saturday off together. We did some grocery shopping, went and got my new shoes and in the evening, we went to see the show at Draghouse. The show was amazing as always, and I really liked that they had a battle between new queens where the winner gets to be in the show next time.

Sunday I had work to do, I did makeup for a photo shoot but also had the chance to take some photos too, which was really nice.
I also finished some photos I have posted on my photographer website cirkelinecoco.com if you want to see my work.
 

I wish you all a happy Monday!

Two days of shoots done.

I’m going to enjoy my Saturday with Daniel and later we are going to see Draghouse’s Drag to the 80’s show.
The last two days I have had two photo shoots and worked with talented people. It’s hard work because when I go home after a shoot as the photographer I still have a lot of work with editing the photos. Last night I was so tired, but it feels so good to be able to do what you are passionate about, I didn’t feel dead tired, I felt happy.

Wednesday, I was at the shopping mall Field’s,I  got some really nice things from Monki and  the best part was that they had a lot on sale and you got an extra 50% off because they are going to rebuild the store.
I got:
2 t-shirts
1 long sleeved blouse
3 pair of socks with cats
1 sun glass case, that my sunglasses fit in
2 ironing brands
and 1 faux fur collar

IMG_6776.JPG

Everything for only 180DKK (around 24€) which was the original price of the faux fur collar alone, so I was very happy with my purchase. 


 

Tonight I’m looking forward to an amazing drag show with Copenhagen’s local queens.
Next weekend we are going to Werq the World!

The test & Unicorn Squad reunion!

Last weekend was so much fun but also hard work. I feel I did my best and I’m satisfied with what I did, considering the circumstances. So now I just have to wait for the final answer.
I’ll do a blog post later on about the pre-test and admission test.

Tuesday was The Unicorn Squad reunion where we celebrated Oliver’s birthday with lunch at BlueTaco, our favourite taco place in Copenhagen. We always have so much fun together the three of us, we should do it more often.

 Unicorn Squad! 

Unicorn Squad! 

Daniel and I was invited for dinner at our friend Daniel’s place in the evening, where he had made vegan dinner for us. The dinner was good, the company amazing and the perfect end for a good day with friends and loved ones.

Today and tomorrow I’m having two photo shoots as a photographer, and this time I’m not doing the makeup. I’m looking forward to working with the model and makeup artist.       

Mental preparation.

I have tried to prepare myself mentally for the big admission test this weekend. I have done a few photo shoots but mostly focused on relaxing and keeping my head calm.

Our 7th floor garden project is going well, we now have different herbs and chili plants, but also new guests that seems to like our garden, Mr. and Mrs. Pigeon. As long as they don’t eat or destroy our plants it’s okay that they come to say hi.  

 

 Last nights dinner & visit

Today I’m going to do Ivy’s makeup for Elle Style Awards, which will be a nice break from the thoughts about the test.
 

I can’t believe that it’s this weekend that I’ll be at the school and do the test, maybe it will seem more real tomorrow.

Getting ready for summer.

One thing that is really important for me when it’s starts becoming sunnier is sunscreen! I don’t use anything under SPF 50, because I believe that it’s one of the keys to keep a younger looking skin.
The products I use at the moment are Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense for my face and for my body P20 10 hours sun protection SPF 50+. Both of them are without perfume, which is a must for me because I can get migraine from some perfume smells.

Something I like to do to get ready for summer is “garden” work. We live on 7th floor so we don’t have a real garden, but we do have a balcony which I’m trying to make into a small garden. Yesterday I replanted some of the veggies I’m trying to grow, and I have to replant some more the next couple of days. At the moment we have 4 cucumber plants, 4 tomatoes, 5 strawberries and radishes that I have replanted so hopefully they will turn out good.

I did it!

I made it to the big and final admission test for the education I applied for!! I got the mail Friday when I was out shopping at the supermarket and I was so happy that I almost cried. There are 12 days to the test, I’m excited, happy and a bit nervous but I just have to remember to do my best and to be me!

Saturday night, Oliver and I did a show together as Unicorn Squad and Oliver also did a lipsync show at a private party. The show we did together was “Seoul’s life advice” it went well, and it was fun and different. The lipsync was amazing, Oliver delivered a fantastic show and everybody loved it!
 

 Unicorn Squad!

The weather has been really good the last couple of day so Daniel and I went for a ride with our Christiania bike, for the first time in 2018.

This week I’m doing some photo shoots and preparing myself for the last admission test.

To get a good start for the new week, you can enjoy Seoul:

First hot day in 2018!

Yesterday it was 19 degrees Celsius in Copenhagen which was really nice and I could wear shorts for the first time in 2018. To celebrate, Daniel and I had our dinner in the park after he finished work. I always feel that here in Denmark we only have spring for a few days before it gets really hot and summer like.

IMG_6549.JPG

I feel the last couple of days have been a bit hmm, because I know I’ll hear from the education I applied for this week. It’s a bit scary in a way, but I will survive!

Today will be a hot day again, maybe I should share some of my summer must haves.

Last week.

It’s one week since I last wrote a blog post, but the last week I have had a lot of mixed emotions. I finished my pre-admission assignment and uploaded it in good time. I’m satisfied with my portfolio and the assignment I submitted, I feel it shows me and my creativity. Now the hard part has started, waiting for the reply, if I’ll go on to the next test or not and all the mixed emotions. I feel I did my best, but I still feel nervous, scared and excited at the same time. I just have to believe in myself, like Daniel and my good friends do and keep a positive mind.

Saturday, I got the chance to try to take photos at a big costume event, so I could see how it is and learn from it, and now I know some things I’ll do different next time.

This week I’ll work on Unicorn Squad’s upcoming show, some other fun stuff and maybe a photo shoot or two.

April, Spring is here!

There was spring in the air today and it was just perfect!
Daniel and I went out for a walk after breakfast to enjoy the good weather, get some fresh air and take some photos of the signs of Spring. It was a good start to the day.

Later on, Oliver came by to talk about our show and we had a photo shoot as well. It went really well, we saw the pretty sunset and we had the chance to see some deer up close before going out for some ramen.

Now, bedtime!

Happy Easter!

I’m trying to keep calm, but it’s hard when I’m thinking about my admission test that I have to submit by the end of the upcoming week. Tomorrow it’s the 1st of April, which it doesn’t feel like at all. We have had so much snow the last month, it has been very cold and there hasn’t been much sunshine. Last year was so much better, but hopefully the weather will be better in April.

Daniel has Easter holidays at the moment and we have spent time being out in the snow Thursday, out in the sun Friday and today, Saturday was just grey.

Tomorrow I’ll welcome April and hope that April will be an unforgettable month!

 What makes me happy!

Shooting & planning shows.

This weekend I did the photo shoot for the admission test which went well, but the weather could have been better. I don’t know what is happening with March this year, last year I had no worries regarding the weather but this year it has created some difficulties for my photo shoot plans.

Oliver and I also planned some parts of a show we will be doing as Unicorn Squad for a private party in April. I’m very excited about it because it will be the first show with Unicorn Squad and it’s been a long time since I have done a live performance.   

 Easter bus?

The upcoming week I’ll be spending a lot of time together with Photoshop and InDesign, hopefully we will become best friends.   

Oh Deer!

I have been busy lately with putting my portfolio together, brainstorming and planning my big shoot for the admission test. Everything is starting to come together, and the photo shoot will be this weekend. Daniel and I went out Sunday to look at location and to have a Sunday walk. It was a beautiful day with blue sky and we walked past a group of deer that didn’t seem to care that we were close to them.

 Deer & I

We also went by the nature centre where we saw the rooster and hens, but we were too late for holding the small cute chickens. I really miss living next to the nature area and being able to go for a walk and see all the animals every day.

I have some new photos up on my photographer website which you can see here. Enjoy.

Having a positive mind.

I really have had a good feeling the last couple of weeks and a very positive mind, which I usually don’t have. But I have been working with myself on trying to look at the positive things instead of the negative. It’s easier said than done, because it becomes a habit. I don’t think many people are noticing a difference, but I hope Daniel has.

Yesterday I went to the doctor with my knee pain. The doctor said that I have overexerted it and have to rest my knee which means NO dancing for a few weeks. I really hope my knee will get better soon, I don’t like walking like an old lady.

I woke up to this beautiful view this morning and had to take a photo of it, and yes, it’s a cemetery on the other side of my street. I love the winter wonderland look, but I want some spring soon.
This morning I was really looking forward for the photo shoot I had, and it went really well.
I’m feeling so happy these days and I know everything will be good.   

Balloon madness?!

When you get an idea for a photo shoot, DO IT! Or at least try it.
Props list from yesterday’s shoot:

●      100 black & pink balloons

●      Pink beads

●      Plain black underwear

●      White bunny mask

●      Gasmask

Just another photo shoot…

I somehow hurt my knee, I walk like an old lady and I’m trying to avoid stairs. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow and hopefully I will find out what’s wrong with my knee.

Today I went to a location I’m going to do a photo shoot at soon so I could get an overview of the location and try and find some good angles. I’m so happy that I get to do what I love and I know that someday the hard work will pay off. Two more shoots this week!  

 
 

 

 

Isn't March spring??

I don’t know what is happing with the weather these days, but it has been -9 degrees Celsius here in Denmark and today a lot of snow in Copenhagen. The climate changes are real!
I wish it was snowing in December instead of March. It’s pretty but I had to move some photo shoots to other dates because of the cold.
 

 Freezing! 

Freezing! 

In the beginning of the week I did 2 photo shoots, I did the makeup and the photography for both of them. Tuesday evening, I went to open house event at the school that I really really want to start at. It was so inspiring, and I got some good and constructive feedback on some of my work from the 2nd year students.
I’m really thankful for their feedback, because I realised what I have to focus on.
Two weeks till the first admission test will comes out!

 

I the meantime I’ll enjoy Drag Race All starts and vegan cake!

Pregnancy shoot.

Yesterday I did my first pregnancy photo shoot, it was so much fun. The location was at STAY Copenhagen which had perfect lighting and many options for different setups.
I’m really satisfied with the photos and hope the model will love them too.

When I came home from the shoot I got a really bad migraine and today I’m still not feeling too good. Hopefully I’ll be feeling better tomorrow, because I’m going to see Draghouse’s 90’s show in the evening.

 

 

I'm so grateful!

Yesterday the article with me for #storyofkvuc was published on the school’s website. I shared it last night on my private Facebook page and the response has been amazing. I did think about if people would respond and how, but there has been a lot of response and it has only been positive so far. I wanted to do the interview to show that you can do what you set your mind to, never give up and just because you are dyslexic it doesn’t mean that you are unintelligent.
I’m really happy that the school asked me and that I did the interview, which you can read here, it’s in Danish.

Tomorrow I’m going to do my first pregnancy photo shoot and I’m so excited.  

 

 

Party Night!

Today has been a very relaxed Sunday, we woke up late and didn’t do much except the most necessary things. A perfect way to spend your Sunday when you have been out the night before.

 

It’s not very often Daniel and I go out to party anymore, but we went out Saturday night and had so much fun with good company. First, we went to a gin & tonic event at Esha’s hair salon, where we met up with our friend Daniel and met some other really nice people. Afterwards we went to Gay Copenhagen that had a small Lady Gaga event where our friend Jaxie was performing with a Drag show. Daniel, Daniel and I had a really good and fun night, we should go out together more often.
