Hair fixed!

Yesterday I was at the hairdresser and got a keratin treatment again, which was needed if you ask me. If you don’t know what a keratin treatment is, the short version is a permanent straightening of your hair. Last time I had it done, was in the beginning of January and I didn’t really know what to expect because it was the first time I ever had it done, but definitely not the last time. I didn’t use a hair straightener from when I had it done in January until July, so it lasted for a long time.

Now I have strait shinny hair again, and I love it!

October, pretty/scary

The weather in October or just autumn in general, can be very mixed, cold, very rainy to summerish. The last couple of days it has been warm and sunny, which I have mixed feeling about.
I like that it is sunny because you really get to see all the beautiful autumn colours but the temperature I’m not happy with. When I think about how cold and long the winter was in the beginning of 2018, how extremely hot and dry the summer was and now some days are over 20 degree Celsius. I feel that something isn’t right here.

I did get inspirited by the beautiful colours to do an autumn makeup.

A more fun type of scary was the HalloQueen show at DragHouse Saturday night. The show was good, and I took some good photos with my new phone.

Today I’m going to the hairdresser to get my hair pretty again.

Copenhagen Culture Night

Friday, Daniel and I met up to eat some dinner before we went out for Copenhagen Culture Night.

Copenhagen Culture Night is an event where a lot of places like museums, attractions, ministries of parliament and other places had events or open house. The event is always a Friday in October and you buy a badge which gives you access to all the places and free public transportations that night.

We had some really good vegan pizza for dinner and after that we went to Amalienborg which is where the Danish royal family live, but there was a long line to get in to the museum at Amalienborg and we didn’t want to wait for that long.

We went to look at two churches, the first one was The Marble Church which is next to Amalienborg and after that we went to the Trinitatis church.
There was a small lecture at my old school about the history of the area where the school is located, it started at 7pm which was why we didn’t had time to wait in line at the palace.
It was fun to see my old school again, even though it is just a bit over a year since I graduated. I saw some of the new class rooms and other new features that they are doing with the renovation.

Later we went to see the Free Masons building, where we had to wait in line for 20 min, but we really wanted to see the place and it was worth the wait. We ended up going to 2 more places before we went home after walking 13km that day.

A night at the ballet

Last night I went with my mom to The Royal Danish Ballet to see Carmen. I haven’t been to the ballet in a long time, last time was in 2015 when I went with the school and we saw small pieces of different ballets.

We first went for dinner at this vegan Italian restaurant called Madenitaly, which is very close to the theatre. I can definitely recommend the place if you want vegan Italian food, it was so good. For starters we shared a cheese dish, where you could taste some of the different vegan cheeses which are made in Italy. It’s the best vegan cheese I have ever tried! For main course we both got a pasta dish, my mom got one with mushrooms and truffle and I had one with vegan cheese and pepper. For dessert my mom got a latte and I had a chocolate coconut cake.

After the dinner we walked over to the theatre, the sky looked really pretty. There was a small introduction to the ballet before the show because it wasn’t the classic version or classic ballet, which surprised some of the people.

It was a good show, nice costumes, an unexpected end and it was fun to think about the choreographer for the ballet has never danced but is one of the most popular choreographers at the moment.
I guess with hard work and passion you can reach any goal.

Movie Sunday

When Daniel saw that they showed 2001: a space odyssey in the cinema he said we had to see it. I never saw it before and to be honest I didn’t know much about it.
It was first after Daniel had booked the ticket he told me that the movie was 3 hours, and that some people says it’s 3 hours of nothing, which made me a bit sceptical.

 

The movie started at 1pm and luckily there was a small break in the movie, because I wouldn’t have survived drinking soda and no toilet break for 3 hours.
After the movie was finished Daniel asked if it was as bad as I have expected. But I actually liked it and was very impressed with all the special effects and the way it has been filmed considering when it was made. But I’m happy we saw it early on the day and I don’t think it would be a movie I would watch in one viewing at home.   

Brainstorming

We still miss Indira and there is something missing at home, but it’s okay to be sad and miss her because she was a big part of our family.

 

The last days I have been looking for models and makeup artists to work with on different photo shoots. I have planned some shoots with a few people and others are in the brainstorming process.

 Today I did a photo shoot with my friend Oliver, we met at 8AM which feels very early on a Saturday because there are few people outside at that time.
After the shoot we went to Nicecream Copenhagen to have lunch, soup and ice cream.

 I feel I got a lot done today, so overall a good day.

The last goodbye

This post has been very hard for me to write and I had to write it over a couple of days.

On Saturday we had Indira’s funeral and said the last goodbye to her, but she will always be with us in our hearts and mind.

It’s still very unreal sometimes because we didn’t see it coming at all. 
Tuesday morning, I got up at 6 like I always do, I noticed that Indira hadn’t slept with us that night which isn’t normal. I took a shower and got dressed, but Indira didn’t come and ask for food. I thought she was sleeping somewhere, but when Daniel got dressed and she didn’t go to him asking for food, I knew something was wrong.
We found Indira and she was breathing very heavily, I picked her up and her stomach was really hard. Daniel called the vet immediately and we got an appointment a bit later that day.
Daniel went to work, and shortly after I went to the vet with Indira. We arrived at the vet 30 minutes before our appointment, the other vet at the clinic could see that Indira was feeling really bad. She had a look at her and said that they had to do an x-ray and blood tests, but she was very shocked that Indira was feeling so bad because she was there Friday for something else and there were no signs of anything wrong with her.  
They gave Indira some oxygen and we agreed that we could come and pick her up a bit later.

I went grocery shopping with my mom and in the middle of the supermarket I got the worst call I have ever received.

Indira had passed away.

Everything stopped, I told the vet that we were on our way. I then made the worst call I ever have had to make, I called Daniel and told him that Indira had died. It was the longest car ride ever to the vet, I cried so much and all I could think of was our baby Indira. 

We arrived at the same time outside the vet, both with tears in our eyes. Daniel took my hand and we went in.
There she was our princess, still so beautiful but not alive. We sat with her and cried for over an hour, why did this happen to our little girl? The vet told that they could see she had fluid in her lungs but when they started removing it was worse that they first thought. She passed away peacefully.

Daniel and I agreed on having a funeral for Indira and that we wanted her buried at the pet cemetery a bit outside Copenhagen. 

The next 2 days we did all the planning and got everything in place for the funeral.

 

The funeral was our last goodbye to Indira physically and the day was with rain, strong wind and sun. It was a day of sadness but on our way home Daniel and I saw a double rainbow in the sky.

We believe it was a greeting from Indira to her Unicorn parents, Daniel and I. 

We love you Indira.

The struggle is real!

I guess I have to start over, which I hate, but there is no other way.

 

 Before & after

Before & after

My nails were so long and pretty but now with 3 broken nails I have to cut them all off and start again. That’s how it is when you want to have your own long nails.

 

Today I’m going to see Oliver. I have missed him and my other friends so it’s going to be so good to see him again.

Sunday trip

The weather was perfect yesterday for a Sunday trip, and luckily, I had planned one for Daniel, my brother Frederik and me. We went to The Old Denmark open air museum, which is just outside Copenhagen.

We had a good day with a lot of fresh air and it was really nice to spend some time with Frederik and hopefully we will have a good time the next few days.

Today I’m starting on the Photoshop basic course and I’m really looking forward to it and hopefully I’ll learn a lot the following weeks.

First day of September

First day of autumn and I’m looking forward to what this season will bring. I already have a few plans and some more that I’m working on. I know there are some different shows/events I want to attend and from Monday and the next 5 Mondays I’ll do a Photoshop basic course.
I’m also going to challenge myself with photography by taking different types of photos that I normally don’t.

The next few days I’m spending time with my brother and going to have a good time.

Trying to find your inner peace

Sometimes it’s good to stop for a moment and look at yourself in this moment. Do you see what you want to see? Are you going in the direction that you had planned to get to your goal? Or are you just lost and don’t know where you are going?   

IMG_8174.JPG

These last few days I feel there has been a lot happening around me and it has had a negative effect on me. I don’t do what I want to do, I don’t talk much with my friends and it makes me sad when I think about it. I have dreams, plans and goals I want to achieve, but what I’m doing at the moment isn’t getting me any closer to them, it’s creating a distance.

It makes me sad to see myself writing this, but I have to change it, I’m the only one who can do something about it. I can’t help or fix things for others if they don’t want it, but I can fix my own and that will help me.

Making a schedule

Yesterday I got feedback from the school, which was very useful. I agree with the suggestions they had that I could work on, and that’s what I’m going to do.

So, I’m trying to make a schedule to work towards the goal, getting in at the education next year. I’m not giving up and I’m so happy that I have a few things I now know I have to work more with than others.

Feedback meeting

Today I’m getting feedback for my admission test, which I’m really looking forward to. I’m hoping that I’ll learn what to work on, but I don’t know really what to expect. So, let’s see what will happen.

I know for sure that I want to work with photography and create photos that people will remember.

At the moment there is an exhibition here in Copenhagen, Vogue Like A Painting, with fashion photography.

IMG_7935.JPG

It’s was true eye candy for me, the colours, composition, motive, location, there was a lot of good photos.

You can see the exhibition at Kunstforeningen GL Strand until the 2nd of September. I recommend it! 

My pride week

Copenhagen pride was last week, I went to some events, saw some shows and did some work.

Tuesday, I had a photo shoot with Brynhildr, a drag queen from Copenhagen, after she had done a workshop with two other queens. I went to the workshop which was called Drag for Beginners, where a lucky person from the audience got a drag make over.

Thursday, I met up with my friends Oliver and Daniel for an event at Glyptoteket, an art museum in Copenhagen, where they had a pride event. After the event we got something to eat and some nicecream.

Friday was Drag Night at Pride Square, like every year. This year the theme was Madonna, which I personally think was a bit boring, but luckily not everyone did Madonna. I went with my boyfriend Daniel, Oliver and Simone, we had a good time but not all the shows were good.
Daniel and I came home late and we had to get up early the next day because there was a story time for kids with Brynhildr event at the library.
So, Saturday started early, the event at the library was at 10am. I really like the children books that Brynhildr read at the event, and it was nice to see parents bring their kids to the event.

Later that day I had a makeup job, I did the makeup for Ivy’s performance for the big pride show. I had Daniel with me and we were backstage and saw Ivy’s show from the corner of the stage. It was fun to see how it is and look out on the audience but from a distance.
We went home shortly after Ivy’s performance, because we had to get up very early the next day. I was so tired when we came home, but I had a good time.

A pleasant surprise!

Getting up at 6 am on a Sunday is hard, especially when you have been busy and out late the days before. But there was a meaning with the “madness”, we were going to my cousin’s son’s christening which was 160km from us. We went with my mom and sister by car and I had a small nap on the way there.
It was nice to see part of the family I don’t see that often. We were waiting in the church for the ceremony to start, but something looked a bit strange. And then it happened. It was not only a christening, but also a wedding. My cousin and his girlfriend surprised us all with them getting married yesterday as well.

We had a very nice day, but we were also very tired when we came back home to Copenhagen.
