Soundwavin’ 2013

by laurenlux

Enjoyed some sunshine and music at Soundwave Croatia in Tisno (just outside of Zadar) this weekend! Highlights were definitely Riot Jazz and Craig Charles. The majority of the festival was jazz, funk, soul, and brass bands with some top 40 and classic hits thrown in (even a bit of Fleetwood Mac). I had no idea what to expect for this weekend with regards to the music and I must admit it was by far the best festival I’ve ever been to! Tickets weren’t too expensive and we booked pretty last minute. Our apartment was incredible (pics below) and only 25 pound/night each! HomeAway also has great Croatia apartments though so we may look into that option next time! Everyone at the festival was really chilled and there was no pressure to party all the time (although we did hehe). Some pics below, mostly of the calm before the storm and a bit from the festival but just wanted to give a taste of Soundwave and how beautiful this little town was!

Pre Asie

by laurenlux

In celebration of my big trip to Asia (which I leave for tonight) I thought I would share some of my summer wardrobe ! Of course I indulged in a bit of nelly, asos, etc etc… I just couldn’t help myself – however, found some great deals. H&M is selling bathing suits for 5 pounds! I got a bright pink one – couldn’t find it online but all you need to know is they are selling really cute bikinis for a 10er, which is pretty sick. This summer I wanted a mix of white, silver, denim, cutouts and print. I think the below gives me just the right balance. I also just recently discovered The Reformation – which is where I got the black dress below from – LOVE IT!

packing1. ASOS white cutout dress

2. Office black leather sandals

3. River Island acid wash skirt

4. Nelly.com jewellery: ring, cuff, and necklace

5. BA&SH low back sundress from ASOS

7. The Reformation ozone dress

8. Topshop white crop cami

9. People tree skirt from ASOS

10. White bandeau bikini

København

by laurenlux

This past weekend I jet-setted to Copenhagen, or shall I say København (hehe). I am now in love with all things Danish. We stayed at an airbnb flat in Vesterbro, an up and coming area of Copenhagen. We hung out and shopped mostly around Vesterbro, Norrebro, and Indre By (central Copenhagen). Resisting purchasing every item that caught my eye caused me great pain and suffering. I know it’s a blessing in disguise, but I swear, shoes and clothes are haunting my thoughts and dreams. Help. I did indulge in a few bits, some you’ll see in upcoming posts and below. I must also mention that I highly recommend having brunch at Paludan or Granola. Next post I write will be a round up of Danish brands to keep in mind/stalk/buy/stop me from buying/etc.
