Lend me your hand and we'll conquer them all

Okay, so I took a break from Gaslight and went back to good old Mumford...


This is one of the things I bought in NYC. An old compass made into a necklace - exactly what I had been looking for. I found it at a flea market, where they had so many great old sailor things, but most of them were too big to bring home on the flight. Too bad.

But I still know the song and the words and her name and the reasons

The Gaslight Anthem is the only band I listen to these days. They are coming to Cph next week, and I am overly excited. All their songs make me want to have lived fifty years ago.

The world fascinates me

I am back from NYC now, and school has started again. It feels so strange, and Copenhagen seems so small right now. It's not easy getting used to this again.
NYC was awesome, and I really want to go back.

We went to flea markets and museums...

And I finally got to watch a real NBA game at Madison Square Garden.

We rented a car to go shopping outside the city. I'll show you some of the things I bought in another post.

My legs are so tired from walking around the city every day, but it was absolutely worth it.

I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel...

We took the ferry to Staten Island and got a great view of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan. As it was my first time in NYC we had to do all the typical tourist stuff - it was great fun.

We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge.

And Eva and I went to see The Drums at Webster Hall. We managed to dance a bit, even though our legs didn't really feel like it after all the sight seeing.

New York City really is amazing.

The Chrysler Building is one of my favourites. It's so pretty.

Just like all the other tourists we had to see the view from the Empire State Building. It literally blew us away.

We took a walk around Central Park, and when the sun went down the city looked like this...

Greenwich Village was one of the things I loved the most. I really need to go back there.

Cph is grey and rainy, and stressful times of exams are just around the corner. It feels good to be able to live on the memories of NYC for a while now.

My head is spinning

I honestly can't concentrate on anything.
Only one thing is on my mind...

Maybe... maybe not

If I don't spend all my money next week, I'm gonna have to get myself one of these when I get back...

Still Falling

We have had perfect Fall sunshine all weekend, and yesterday I went back here...

It was cozy and beautiful... but just not the same.

Pizza and pirate hats

Last night I had two of my favourite girls over for dinner and drinks. They always make me laugh. We played dress-up with pretty much all my clothes and then went out dancing.

None of us wore the pirate hat out of the house though...

Looking and looking

I really want to find a pretty red dress.

En vän är en vän hur taskigt livet än gått

I love love love this. Han är ju bäst!
Och Gbg är finast!

Sailor, be mine!

Usually I don't get up early on Sundays, but today I did, because I wanted to go to the flea market (loppis!) one last time before they close for the Winter. And boy, did I find a treasure!
Last Winter they had this extremely cute jacket at Topshop, but it was sold out before I ever even got to try it on. So sad. But then today when I was at the flea market I could not believe what I saw. Who in their right mind would sell a jacket this precious?
The perfect sailor jacket is now hanging in my bedroom, and I can't stop looking at it.

How lucky can one girl be?
