Today's weekend warmup is dedicated to our neighbours down south- Denmark... Medina and her song "Kun for mig" has been played 24/7 this summer in Denmark and is now climbing the charts with her english version "you and me". During Copenhagen fashion week I had the opportunity to see her perform during one of the most spectacular fashion shows I've been to, designer Stine Goya's. Medina was then performing 5 meters up in the air on a diving-board, see the clip here.

Just another day in paradise:
"The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself."
"Creativity often consists of merely turning up what is already there. Did you know that right and left shoes where thought up only a little more than a century ago?"

When you have bought a new pair of shoes (shoes = Vagabond) it is really important that you handle them with care and give them love. The most love you can give them, or maybe it's just love for your ego, is this luxury shoe care kit from legendary Paul Smith. For the tiny amount of 549$ a beautiful wooden box with "all you can think of for your shoes in way of creams and brushes kit" will be yours. Not really a bargain, but at least it looks good.
