Model (Food) Diary: August/Summer/Copenhagen/Sporty Vacay

Hello my dear readers/friends/lovely ladies! How has summer treated you so far? I hope it treated you very well!  Here’s a peek into how summer is treating me so far, ‘cause what’s more fun than voyeuring someone else’s life?! You’re welcome 😉

Modelling and Summer Season

In case you are a fulltime model, I figure you checked out for a while to travel and meet friends and family. Or maybe you are still in school and these summer months were your time to shine abroad, working as a model in Paris/New York/Seoul (like our guest blogger Emma does) or somewhere else.

Running & Ice Cream

You may have been on a well deserved vacay, or you may have visited a hand full of festivals in your home country. You may have started training for your first 5K with my run training tips (how are you doing so far? Let me know by replying below this blog!), or you may have tried out one of my ice cream recipes. 

Whatever you did: I hope you had fun and enjoyed the last summer months, that luckily have not yet come to an end!

My Summer: Spotting Moos & Wedding Bells

As August is a bit of a quiet month regarding modelling, this Model (Food) Diary has a little less modelling than you’re used to. August is always a bit quiet with modelling jobs and therefore I checked out with my agency during this month for a while, went a short vacay and visited my family in Sweden.

Furthermore, I have been busy organising my best friends wedding (I was honored to be her best ‘man’), I made a lovely boat trip through the Amsterdam canals to celebrate my friends 30th birthday, helped organise and produce an art performance that involved fashion models, had a business meeting with two of my model colleagues in regards of a new project that we are working on (unfortunately I can’t tell you much more about that yet), made a whole lot of bike trips through the forests, stayed in Copenhagen for a few days where I among others visited the Greenlight Zone Christiana and not to forget: I spotted mooses in Sweden!

Here’s a peek into how summer is treating me so far, ‘cause what’s more fun than voyeuring someone else’s life?! You’re welcome 😉

Copenhagen at the docks; a famous scenery and a lovely place to go to during summer evenings, when music groups play gigs on the street.

I helped producing/organising an art project in which beauty ideals were compared to each other. I was lucky to be able to book one of my friends and the other models were such nice company during these two days of working together as well!

My diary would not be complete without a picture of one of my runs. I am now able to run a minimum of 45 minutes of stopping, without feeling any pain in my knee and shin. Yay! I'm curious towards how you girls are doing!
