Bye 2012, Hi 2013!

This will be my last post in 2012 so see you in 2013. I love this picture. It is a screen capture of Florence and the Machine´s video for their cover of Candy Staton´s "You Got The Love".

To welcome year 2013 I made a wish / to do list for the upcoming year.

To fall in love.
Spend more time with friends.
Eat lots of good food and learn to make new dishes.
Listen to good music and discover many new favorites to listen to.
Travel to places where I have not been before.
Do things I have not done before. It can be small things but break the routine.
Read more books.
Teach my dog new things and go to exciting places with her (meaning exciting places for her).
Figure out what I might want to do next in the working field.

All in all to be happy and comfortable in my own skin:).

Happy New Year 2013!! 

Solar Year - Magic Idea.

"Magic Idea" is from Solar Year´s upcoming release Night & Day 7" on 7th of January.

Guess what this is post number 300!:D

Palmistry - Shrimps Last Dance.

YES, Palmistry is back with a new EP!!

Spirits Of Leo - Spirits Of Leo EP.

Bobby Got - Without you.

More music from Australia. Bobby Got´s peaceful song "Without You" is a mix of chillwave and instrumental hip-hop. Goodie!

A Fire In The Woods - Tracks In The Snow.

Pretty Heart - Half Asleep.

I reckon that you will be hearing a lot more of Pretty Heart in 2013! Really nice and darkish electronic music but yet commercial enough.

Ps. Sorry for the radio silence.

The xx documentary (in three parts).

Christmas holidays are right around the corner. Watching a documentary about the xx performing and behind the scenes is a perfect way to spend some home time and relax with a warm cup of glögg. By the way I´m so hooked on glögg. I have been drinking it almost every day:).

1 / 3 The xx recording.

2 / 3 The xx rehearsal.

3 / 3 The xx live.

Copenhagen in pictures.

Last weeks trip to Copenhagen was really lovely and relaxing. I did some shopping, had lots of glögg, ate good food, slept alot and walked around town much. Here are some pictures from my trip.

A really nice cafe called Bang & Jensen in Vesterbro with a feeling like you were in your own livingroom. People seemed to be at home having their breakfasts and reading their morning papers and surfing online. Link to their blog:

Another really cute cafe called Teteria! I loved how it was decorated. Beautiful colours and detailing was spot on. The owner was also really nice. Link to their web page:

Sticks´n´Sushi was good lunch place with stylish ascetic style and reasonable priced good sushi.

The hotel where I stayed at was called the Clarion Collection Hotel Mayfair located in Vesterbro. I loved it. A really easygoing hotel with good service and location but yet very stylish hotel with a colonial feel. Link to hotels web page:

 The Tivoli during winter time was magical! I loved all the lights and the overall athmosphere. Also went to see the Nutcracker designed by Queen Margrete. It was beautiful. Especially the first act was done really well. The set and acts in first part were done really well in terms of colours, styles and athmospehere and the story swept you by your feet. The second act was not as beautiful and the styles, setting and acts clashed together in some parts but I still enjoyed the overall act very much!

Here are some random pictures of Christmas market, Istegade, window display, cute looking restaurant...

Yuno - Sunlight.

HAERTS - Wings.

Mmm - Dark Motion.

Chopped & Scrooged.

Remixes from Sufjan Steven´s Silver and Gold.

Pins - Kiss Me Quickly (It´s Christmas).

It´s Christmas in a few weeks!! Lots of jingle-jangles are played around the stores and office and other parties. Here is another one but a good one:).

Deptford Goth - Union.

Deptford Goth is just so brilliant!<3>

Packing the bags again. Traveling is super but packing the bags is not really my favorite thing. One thing that might got something to do with it is the fact that my trollie is WAY too small. I should really consider buying a bigger one but somehow I can´t get around to it as I´m so attached to the old one. Tomorrow morning I will head to Copenhagen for the rest of the week. This time it´s a non-work related trip and I will go and see "The Nutcracker", Tivoli during winter time, do some shopping, eat well, walk around town and relax:).

Jessie Ware´s Tavastia gig.

Jessie Ware gig was just brilliant!! Her voice and precence were amazing. The whole set was played from Devotion (it think). In between the songs and sometimes in the middle of them she was joking and taking contact with the audience. She seemed really sympathetic and she was refreshingly stoked about the gig. This was her first tour and it showed in a good way. My favorite songs were "110%", "Taking In Water", "Night Light", "Running" and "Sweet Talk".

Sorry about the crappy quality of photos. No flash from the distance with a phone is not that great combination.

"Taking In Water" is a song Jessie made for her brother. I think that is super sweet. Gotta love your family! "Pulling you out, I'll take the blue, away, I'm taking water, my brother, remember
I'm taking water for you." -Jessie Ware.

I can so relate to this. I also have huge love and respect for my little sister and I would "take in water" for her anytime.
