Jabra Event // Casa Magnifica

About a month ago, I was invited to a cozy and intimate event by Pencil PR and Jabra, at the “secret” restaurant Casa Magnifica. It was a very warm (read: hothothot) afternoon, so I didn’t complain when we were put on the rooftop terrace with a cool glass of bubbles while waiting for the rest to show up.

Jabra is a Danish brand that develops headsets and speaker phones, and the point of the event was for Jabra to introduce some of the new products for us – the JABRA REVO speakerphones and the JABRA SOLEMATE bluetooth speaker. First we had good introduction and presentation of the brand and products from one of the Jabra guys. To emphasize that Jabra really is good products with thought for both quality sound and design, the ever handsome DJ Thomas Madvig, personal user of the REVO speakerphones, endorsed them with fine comments (and sound) afterwards.

After the presentation, we were free to try the products out. I tried the speaker phones, and was truly amazed. I have never really cared for speaker phones I guess as I’ve always used some who came with my phone, or bought a cheap pair, but wow – this was great sound! Thomas helped me find a good track so I really could hear the quality of the speaker phones. They are completely soundproof in a way that you can’t heard anything that goes on around you – but people around you also can’t hear your music playing. How great is that! I hate when people “share” their music in the train because of shabby headphones.

Back on the rooftop terrace, the gourmet chef, owner of Casa Magnifica and former chef at NOMA, Boris Buono, served one delicious treat after another. Oh-my-taste-buds! As a food-lover I’ve read about Casa Magnifica before, but never really thought I’d get a chance to visit the social dining secret that serves menues starting from 1000 DKR and up, and only houses 12 guests at a time this soon. But I did – and I was happy to!

When it was time to say goodbye, we we’re told we could choose either a set of speaker phones or a speaker to take with us home. I was a bit torn, as the speaker phones had impressed me quite much, but because I hardly never use speaker phones I chose to bring home a SOLEMATE (cute name right?). The Jabra Solemate is a small and handy transportable bluetooth spreaker. I’ve been testing it for more than a month now, and I really like it. Is easy to use because of the bluetooth, it speaks to you (!!), and when you have it connected with you phone, you can even answer your calls though it. There’s speakers on both sides which makes the sound spread in all directions, and it can easily fill up our two living rooms with music. Best of all is the simple and cool design. I’ve always hated speakers for being ugly and space obtaining, but this one is not only good sound, it’s pretty too.

Sorry for this looong post, but didn’t want to leave too much out. When you find a good product, it deserve some space :)

The Cat In The Orange Chair

DSC_0005DSC_0008 forgetaboutit 600x150 DSC_0010

I know this great 2nd hand furniture sale in Copenhagen. It’s only open once a week, and only for 2 hours! Today I dropped by just as it opened, and my eyes immediately caught this orange fellow. Another woman already had her hands on it, but decided not to buy, as it wasn’t as cheap as she had hoped. Just my luck! The colour is perfect in our living room, and I love the frame and the 70s vibe. Disko seems to love it too – he has been laying in it ever since I brought it home.

This chair actually means we’re done furnishing the livingroom (with big things)! Of course my boyfriend thinks we should get rid of my Kartell Bourgie lamp and Panier coffee table, but that won’t happen until we (I) find a suitable replacement. And who knows how long that will take..?

Just ordered this beautiful and fuzzy knit from HM.com. I bought one quite similar last fall in black and it has been one of my favourite knits ever since. Hopefully I’ll be as happy for this one too. Lane Del Rey looks absolutely amazing in it anyways…

New In // Camera Bag

Me And Disko.com

It’s Sunday – and officially the first day in my 2 weeks of vacation! Oh baby yes – I’ve been looking forward to this! Yesterday, I got off work a bit earlier, so decided to hit a flea market on my way home. In a hidden corner I found this old camera bag. I’ve been looking for a substitute for the very un-stylish camera bag I already have, so for only 25 kroner (about 4 dollars) I took it home. Love it already. Think I’ll hit some more flea markets today – and maybe the beach too. Have a happy Sunday!

New In // Giant Glasses

After a few (too many) years wearing contacts all day, I decided it was about time to let my eyes breathe a bit. -At least a couple of days a week. I’ve had my glasses for a few days now, and I’ve grown quite happy for them. They are huge – I know –  but that’s what I like about them. The huge frame makes it possible still to see my eye instead of squeezing it in, as some frames do. Thought I’d might as well chose a frame that made me look like a funky designer – maybe I’ll become one too then :)

3, 2, 1 – Vanish!

Just received this big box of Vanish products – guess it’s time to remove some stains! I’m a Buzzador member, witch means I get to try out some products and give feedback on them – for free! This time I’m trying out Vanish stain removal product – something I’ve never used before. I’m a bit hooked on the white-trend that’s hot at the moment, so pretty sure these products are going to become some of my best friends this summer!! Already have a shirt waiting to be rescued – you stupid chocolate-stain! I’ll tell how it goes later :)

Anyways – If you would like to become a Buzzador member too, you can register right here, and it will know I invited you. I’ve earlier tested a movie rental service, and  my sister once tested a big box of Ritter Sport – not bad, not bad! You can read more about Buzzador here. I’m of to the laundry room. Ciao!

 

UPDATE: It’s working!! Spotless :D

New In // Leather Bag

Me And Disko.com Me And Disko.com Me And Disko.com

As I mentioned yesterday, the beautiful Danish designer Stine Goya was selling out of her personal wardrobe at a flea market the past weekend. I bought this fab leather bag from her – a real scoop! She told me it was bought in Spain, and that’s all I know about it, as there’s no lable. I love the colour of the leather and the cute lock and key details – maybe I’ll use it to store some of my magazines in..

Rings

Today I visited an indoor flea market (Remisen, near Trianglen at Østerbro) with my aunt D . Did some really great buys, among others a simple silver ring for only 10 kroner. It goes well with the two other rings I wear at the moment: Anne Black love ring and Maria Black monocle ring. Danish designer Stine Goya was selling out of her personal wardrobe, and I bought two fab items at great price from her – a bag and a pair of boots. I’ll show it to you later, but right now I need a nap! xx
