I’ve only been to Roskilde Festival once before, back in 2003, so it was good to be back! I’ll show you some snaps from the days we were there..
The designers: Me, Mette Marko and Soffi Mbenga
I worked as a designer for H&M at Roskilde, and in return I got my ticket. I worked all Thursday on opening day, and me and two other designers made accessories and t-shirts for the Swap Shop. Festival guest could come and swap their old (and dirty) clothing/accessories to new ones. The overlying theme for the H&M Reboot area was sustainability, and I think it came across pretty well.
Friday we attended the “Taste of Lolland-Falster” lunch at Roskilde. The ever handsome Rødder was cooking, and as always the food was beautiful and tasty! We has three courses, beer and dessert wine for only 110 kroner! This is a must if you attend Roskilde next year – and there are lots of other social dining experiences as well.
Did you attend Roskilde festival this year??
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 :)
On a hot day a few weeks ago, I was invited to an event by Jabra involving new Jabra products, cool music and lovely food. I got to bring home a Jabra SOLEMATE (a blootooth transportable speaker) that I’m currently testing. I’ll give you a review later – but so far so good!
The event was held at Casa Magnifica that holds a rooftop terrace with this beautiful view of Copenhagen. Oh joy on a sunny day!
Sunday, we all drove up to Louisiana – Museum of Modern Art. Loooooved the Tara Donovan exhibition! Not so fond of Yoko Ono’s though, but this wish tree was pretty nice. I love the gardens at Louisiana, especially the Lake Garden.
Yesterday I dropped by Lidkoeb for a free (!) dinner and drinks event. Liquid Management served some impressive drinks with Monkey Shoulder whisky, Rødder made some delicious food and The Orgelheimers (Organ beat music!) sat the tone. Very cozy evening. I should really go out more on weekdays..
Remembered I forgot to show you the pictures from the Coldplay concert back in August. As you can see – it was light-show-crazyness in the absolute best way ever! Even the audience were part of the light-show, as blinking wristbands were handed out in the entrance. Very cool gadget! It was my third Coldplay concert, and definitely not the last if you ask me. One of the few bands that NEVER bore me.
Tomorrow Thursday, Vero Moda celebrates its 25 years anniversary with 25% discount in all Danish store – but for one day only! Girls! Get your purses and go shopping! There are lot’s of cool styles at the moment, I especially have my eye on this dress from the Very collection – perfect for a Christmas party!
The silver anniversary is to be marked in more than 40 countries with Vero Moda shops, but the 25% discount day may be different from country to country. So go check your national Vero Moda facebook page – the day will be revealed there. Happy shopping!
Today you can walk 5 km in Frederiksberg Garden, buy a pink creamy cake at Reinh Van Hauen and support the fight against breast cancer the whole time!
In Denmark, today is Pink Saturday / lyserød lørdag. A lot of shops are donating profits from today’s sales to the fight against breast cancer – so if your about to go shopping, why not spend your money at one of these places? You can even save money in some of the shops, so go go go!
See the whole list of shops right HERE, and check out some of the other cool events too. I’m on my way soon!
Yesterday I went fishing with my dad, in an near by put’n’take lake. He caught 4 trouts and I, of course, caught nothing!! N o t h i n g !!
..At least I managed to get something on the hook, when my dad went in the water trying to get his hook free from the sea grass.. Would have been more fun, had he been a bigass fish though!
