Small and happy's snapshots from Copenhagen!

Well hello and hallo there! I'm totally guessing that hallo is Danish for hello by the way, I didn't pick up any of the language during our whistle stop weekend in Copenhagen a couple of weeks ago! 

Just checked.

Hello is Hej.

So Hej, one and all! Whilst I didn't pick up even the most basic of Danish phrases as I was saying what in the country's capital what I DID pick up was a serious love for this clean, exciting, vibrant city (as well as an awesome keyring, but more on that later....) 

Here are some of my Instagram snaps from the trip and I hope they inspire you to go! Seriously it's so near to us in the UK you really just must, an hour and a half flight anyone?!

1. The beautiful Nyhavn. Just look at all those colours!

2. Ariel in the flesh! The amount of tourists crowding around this chica was incredible. A little gem in the jewelled crown of the city.

3. The famous open faced sandwiches, althought let's face it, it's basically art at this level! Boyfriend devoured a smorgasbord and highly recommends them to all.

4. A typical Danish (and delicious) breakfast with more muesli than you can shake a stick at! 

5. The fantastic Tivoli Gardens! For the lesser Scandi-familiar this is basically a 200 year old adorable fairytale like theme park right in the centre of town. It's worth a trip purely for this! 

6. A beautiful castle. Can't remember the name but basically there's a lot of beautiful buildings in Copenhagen and this is one of them. Cameras at the ready people!

7. Some lovely interiors Scandi chic style. All of the pastels, I'll have them all please.

8. My new friend, Emerald the mermaid magnet. For those of you asking, yes, she is Emmy for short. And yes, she lives on the fridge. 

Also no, I don't know where her bra went. Saucy.

Anyway, that's a little window into our trip away. I feel like we've mastered the weekend break and it really does just keep you going and make the normal weeks just a bit more exciting. Travel is so enriching and to think that there in Europe there are so many wonderful places on our doorstep is so inspiring!

So the next question is,

Where next? 

Where would you recommend for a weekend getaway?! Have you been to Copenhagen?

Small, happy and life lately!

Helloooo my lovely lot,

How are we this Friday Eve?!

Once again my life is going full steam ahead (and even that phrase I feel doesn't suffice) but hey ho that's the life of a teacher in the summer term! I can't sit down for a very long chat I'm afraid so here's a sneaky snapshot of us in Copenhagen last weekend and a round up of life lately!

Eating// Waitrose's delicious healthy choice raspberry balsamic vinegar #middleclassfoods. Totally brightening up my work lunches!

Watching// Jurassic World again. Seriously go if you haven't seen it yet! The film=epic. Chris Pratt=hot.

Wanting// a chow chow dog. I mean sorry, I'm seeing them everywhere I go (so it's obviously a sign) and how could you not want this face in your life on a permanent basis?!

Planning// our South East Asia trip. Anyone got any recommendations for Vietnam or Bali?!

Lifting// weights. Yeah, that's right. My new Pure Gym membership is working me hard!

Obsessing// over House of Cards. I accidentally spoiled myself for the end of season 3 but it only made me want to get to the end of the season more!

Coveting// ALL the summer clothes but knowing I have no need for anything new in my wardrobe.

Reminiscing// about our lovely weekend trip to Copenhagen this past week. Somewhere I really hadn't thought to go and I'm so glad I did. If you're in the UK I really recommend it for a nice trip away. So clean, friendly and some lovely places with lots to do!

Feeling// rushed off my feet, happy, excited, lucky, achy, loved...

And about a million and one other things, but that's life isn't it?!

So catch me up, what's new (pussycat?)

Small, happy and #TRAVELTUESDAY

Morning! How are we all this fine day?

I'm joking about the weather obvs, it's pretty grey here but hey ho, inside my head I'm tanning on a beach somewhere! 

Today I thought I'd post a quick picture for #traveltuesday.

Travel is a huge passion of both mine and my boyfriend's and we've been lucky to go to lots of amazing places. However, I don't seem to talk about travel enough on this blog!

And so, the picture above is from Copenhagen which is where we have booked a cheeky little weekend getaway in June. The prices for the flight and hostel were amazing so we just jumped! This is especially good news as from several different accounts I've heard Copenhagen is expensive!

So what I'd love is some recommendations? Have you ever been? What European city breaks are your favourite? 

Have a Super Tuesday!

Lots of love,
