My New PERSUEDE Jeweler

May 20, 2017

YES, yes, yes! I’ve got a new jeweler and couldn’t be happier for this new collaboration. Not only is the craftsmanship better than before, the communication is also much better and she even adheres to all deadlines – something that really lacked in my collaboration with my then jeweler.

My new jeweler is Susan and is really amazing, so I feel really lucky to have gotten her on board PERSUEDE. It’s actually her who has helped to realize many of the styles from the new RONDEUR collection that you can explore HERE. If you’re interested in taking a goldsmith course, you should definitely check out Susan’s website and keep an eye out for her upcoming courses in Copenhagen. I’m doing the wax model course at the end of summer! xx

Birthday Celebration

April 24, 2017

Tomorrow it’s my birthday and Saturday I was celebrated by my closest friends. We started with dinner and wine in my neighbourhood, after which we moved on and got a few drinks (and a cup of coffee?) before we ended at our table at the club. My hangovers the day after, reminded me of why I don’t really go out anymore, and far more would like to spend my weekends working and being productive. BUT thank you so much to all the lovely people who celebrated me this weekend. Maybe you can recognize some of them? xx

Relaunch of My Creative Space, My Visual Online Diary

March 13, 2017

[:en]

[edgtf_dropcaps type=”normal” color=”#333″ background_color=”#fff”]I[/edgtf_dropcaps] can finally unveil my new creative space, my visual diary, as I like to call it. For me, the universe in here, are much more than just a “blog” – it’s my creative space, an arena in which I can do, say, and share just what I want. I work with lots of different things, and I want that you can sense that in here; I have my own jewellery brand, works as a freelance photographer, I design websites for various companies, acts as an influencer etc. The sections of my life that will be focused most on in here, are probably my photographic and creative abilities to create something truly individual, but primarily my life as an influencer.

I felt that I needed some kind of a fresh start of something new and better, and that’s why I chose to work on a new version of By Pankalla. It must be about the 7th time that’s happened since I started, haha. I finally feel well enough to feel like a normal person that can actually live a normal life. Much more of this further on.

Now I’m just very excited about slowly starting up again, on a platform where I actually have (almost) all the opportunities that I lacked before. Be sure to swing by once in a while, and then I’ll promise you that there’s not going to be much more than a few days between each post O:)

[edgtf_dropcaps type=”normal” color=”#333″ background_color=”#fff”]J[/edgtf_dropcaps]eg kan endelig løfte sløret for mit nye kreative frirum, min visuelle dagbog, som jeg godt kan lide at kalde det. For mig er universet herinde, meget mere end bare en “blog” – det er mit kreative frirum, en arena hvor jeg kan gøre, sige og dele lige hvad jeg har lyst til. Jeg laver mange forskellige ting, og det ønsker jeg at man kan fornemme herinde; jeg har mit eget smykkebrand, arbejder som freelance fotograf, designer hjemmesider for diverse virksomheder, fungerer som influencer m.m. Dét der nok kommer til at komme mest til udtryk herinde, er mine fotografiske og kreative evner, men primært min hverdag som influencer.

Jeg følte, at jeg trængte til en form for frisk start på noget nyt og bedre, hvorfor jeg valgte at arbejde på en ny version af By Pankalla. Det må så også være omkring syvende gang, dét er sket siden jeg startede med at blogge, haha. Jeg har endelig fået det tilpas godt til at jeg langt om længe, føler mig som et normalt menneske, der faktisk kan have en normal hverdag. Meget mere om dette på et andet tidspunkt.

Nu glæder jeg meget blot til at komme langsomt i gang igen, på en platform hvor jeg faktisk har (næsten) alle de muligheder, som jeg manglede før. Husk at svinge forbi engang i mellem, og så lover jeg at der ikke går meget længere end et par dage imellem hvert indlæg O:)

Just, Like, Realizing Things

January 3, 2017

We just jumped into a new year, and Jesus Christ, 2016 has passed us quickly! BUT let’s rewind time before I continue. I remember last year’s New Year’s Eve and my conversation with Lisa Kastleen as it was yesterday. We stood on the roof in the middle of Copenhagen with a glass of champagne in our hand and looked at the beautiful fireworks that illuminated the otherwise dark night sky. We had one of those deep conversations we often have, which was about our expectations for the new year and what we wanted to achieve.

We were quite sure that it would be OUR year and we would take over the world and show everyone that we have much more to offer than what we’ve shown so far. Now we have just started a new year and nothing went as expected and desired. I can obviously only speak for myself and go into details on behalf of myself. I had set a lot of different realistic goals that I would strive to achieve before the year was out, but as I stand here on the other side of 2016, I can only cross out 2 out of 10 goals. This is a disappointment in itself.

BUT although I haven’t achieved everything that I desired, the year has on many points been MY year. I’ve been all the way down where nothing made sense anymore and wanted most of all to not exist anymore, been surrounded by negative energy, moved away from CPH and spent far too much time to drive far to get to my former job in the city, had a hell lot of inner struggles, which among other things contained a identity crisis, a minor personality disorder and a lot of other things that I want to address in a separate post. Although nothing went as desired, 2016 was still a good year, especially for my psyche and my relationship with myself. I’ve been trapped in a roundabout way too long and hasn’t been able to pull myself together to figure out which exit I should take. I’ve been afraid of the unknown and therefore have unconsciously chosen to be in this roundabout. Somehow I came up of the hole, made a decision, chose the direction and rolled away.

2016 was the year where I came much closer to getting back to myself again, became more positive and regained my go-do attitude, put the whole ‘clubber’ life behind me for good and cut my circle of friends to the bone, became wiser about each individual, which is particularly rooted in my former work with children. 2016 was also the year where I moved back to Copenhagen, finished English and psychology, realized a big dream and launched my own jewelry brand (PERSUEDE), experienced a completely different culture in Morocco (warmest trip ever, btw), was flown to Stockholm by Diesel to attend an event, visited my friend in London and got hired by HUMAN UNIVERZ where I’m work at the office with my lovely friend!

The year of 2016 was basically … actually, Kylie said it quite accurately in a video at the beginning of the year.

“Like, I feel like every year has a new energy, and I feel like this year is really about, like, the year of just realizing stuff. And everyone around me, we’re all just, like, realizing things.”

Vi er lige sprunget ind i et nyt år, og hold nu op 2016 er gået hurtigt! MEN lad os lige spole tiden tilbage. Jeg husker tydeligt sidste års nytårsaften, og min samtale med Lisa. Vi stod på taget midt på Toftegårds Allé i Valby med et glas champagne i hånden og betragtede det smykke fyrværkeri, som oplyste den ellers mørke nattehimmel. Vi havde en af de dér dybe samtaler, som vi ofte har, der drejede sig om vores forventninger til det nye år og hvad vi gerne ville opnå. Vi var helt sikre på at det ville blive VORES år og vi ville overtage verden, og vise alle at vi har meget mere at byde på end hvad vi hidtil har vist og hvad folk egentlig tror.

Nu har vi lige taget hul på et nyt år, og intet gik som forventet. Jeg kan selvfølgelig kun tale for mig selv og uddybe dette. Jeg havde sat en masse forskellige realistiske mål, som jeg ville stræbe efter at opnå inden året var omme, men nu hvor jeg står her på den anden side af 2016, kan jeg kun sætte flueben ved blot 2 ud af over 10 målsætninger. Dette er en skuffelse i sig selv. Jeg er skuffet over min egen præstation.

MEN selvom jeg ikke har opnået alt det, som jeg gerne ville, så har året på mange punkter alligevel været MIT år. Jeg har været helt nede, hvor intet gav mening længere og ønskede mest af alt ikke at eksistere længere, været omringet af negativ energi og egoistiske personligheder, flyttet væk fra København og brugt alt for meget tid på at køre langt for at komme til mit daværende job på Amager, haft en helvedsmasse indre kampe, som blandt andet har indeholdt en – og gør det sådan set stadig – identitetskrise, en mindre personlighedsforstyrrelse og en masse andet, som jeg ønsker at tage op i et seperat indlæg.

Selvom intet har været som ønsket, så var 2016 alligevel et godt år for især min psyke og mit forhold til mig selv. Jeg har været fanget i en rundkørsel alt for længe og har ikke kunnet tage mig sammen til at finde ud af hvilken afkørsel jeg skulle tage. Jeg har været bange for det uvisse og har derfor ubevidst valgt at blive i denne rundkørsel. På en eller anden måde kom jeg op af hullet, tog en beslutning, valgte retning og trillede afsted.

2016 var året, hvor jeg kom meget tættere på at finde tilbage til mig selv igen, blevet mere positiv og genvundet mit gå-på-mod, (for længst) lagt hele ‘clubber’ livet bag mig og skåret min omgangskreds helt ind til benet, blevet klogere på hvert enkelt individ, hvilket især bunder i mit daværende arbejde med børn. 2016 var også året hvor jeg flyttede til Vesterbro, færdiggjorde engelsk og psykologi, realiserede en stor drøm om at starte mit eget smykkebrand (PERSUEDE), oplevede en helt anden kultur i det smukke Marokko (varmeste tur nogensinde, btw), blev fløjet til Stockholm af Diesel, for at deltage i et event, besøgte min veninde i London og fik en stilling hos HUMAN UNIVERZ, hvor jeg arbejder sammen med min skønne veninde.

I bund og grund var 2016 året … Kylie sagde det egentlig ret præcist i en video i starten af året.

“Like, I feel like every year has a new energy, and I feel like this year is really about, like, the year of just realizing stuff. And everyone around me, we’re all just, like, realizing things.”
