Christmas 2015

Christmas day was amazing!

We celebrated Christmas in the UK, West Yorkshire to be exact, and got to see the kids open all their presents, it was a whole new experience for me, and I loved every min. of it. We had our first Christmas tree in the apartment too, it was beautiful! We went to ”Fisketorvet” to buy one of the kids her present, we got drinks there too, to celebrate Black Friday, it was beautiful with all the lights as always, my fiancé bought me some fantastic Christmas presents again this year, he seems to overdo it each year, insane! This year, he bought me a Pandora bracelet and Pandora earrings! Plus another firebox mystery crate you can see all their gadgets here and he also got me the cutest little unicorn hoodie with build in gloves! Here is a few pictures of everything.

We did a Christmas decoration, made Christmas stars and decorated our tree, I can’t begin to explain how wonderful this December has been, in the beginning of December, we had a snowstorm in Denmark, a very crazy one! From one day to another, we got landed with tons of snow, and the streets were very icy, but at Christmas itself, we had no snow what so ever – typical isn’t it? If you find the pictures too small, you can always have a browse at my Instagram lifeasmiamariah. Would be happy to have more amazing followers!

The last picture is me and my fiancé, dressing up, at his grans house! We had to try out her Santa hat complete with beard and her reindeer horns, haha! It was made into a very special memory, and a good laugh when we look back at it!

So yeah, that was my Christmas basically, how was yours? I would love to hear about it!


Truly, madly, deeply.


A forever love, what’s that? To me it’s that you can’t wait to share your thoughts and opinions with him, and always stop up and think “hm I wonder what he would think of this!” Every time something funny, bad or sad happened, and when you are out and someone says “Oh look at that actor on the poster, he is hot” and you think “Nope, my boyfriend is just so much sexier” – that’s forever love for me.

Lately it’s getting very close to the moving date for my boyfriend and it’s a huge step for us because he lives in the UK and I live in Denmark. He is moving here the 9th of May, the ticket is booked, things are getting organized and I cannot wait to share my life with him.  

I’m exited and I feel like it’s so unreal, like a fairytale and I’m finally getting my prince that I’ve been wishing would come along and find me and he did. In a time where I had given up on love completely, I found it so unexpectedly.

My nearest and dearest have seen him, talked to him and adore him. Most importantly – he likes them too. 

In May he is moving over here, summer and warmth and love, I can’t wait to show him how wonderful Denmark is at summer time.

We have so many plans, of redecorating the apartment, of things to do and to see and I can’t wait to start life with him, to start living. I feel alive with him, like he makes me so much more and gives me a new image of myself – one that I really love.

My soppy love story from me to you, now you know why I’m so over the moon can’t stop smiling happy.. It’s all him.

See you online guys x

Going back home

Goodbye UK, gonna miss Elland, been here for eight days now and I don’t seem to wanna leave!


My heart is in two countries – England and Denmark. I don’t want to say goodbye to any of them.

It’s never easy taking that dreaded plane home, I hate going home from England, I wish I could just stay forever. He is moving to Denmark in a few months, but the wait will be horrible, being apart is never easy and I wish he could just go with me right now.

I’ve traveled to many places around the world, but UK has always been my favorite. Been here quite a lot lately due to my boyfriend and all, but my first trip to UK was when I was fifteen, and I swore to myself that it wouldn’t be my last time. I love the language, the buildings, the shops, most of the food – haha, and my boyfriend is here and his entire family.

This time I met the rest of his entire family, I saw them all, I feel closer to all of England now, and I’m gonna miss it so terribly! It won’t be the last time that I’m going to visit, I’m in love with the country and the people I’ve met have gotten a special place in my heart. 

All of his friends and family have made such a huge impact on me, they are forever special and I wouldn’t ever wanna be without them in my life. I think I’ve been lucky, to have met all of these amazing people.

This picture was at “Julio’s” – an Italian restaurant in Halifax, we celebrated my boyfriends 30th birthday here, and I met all of his family there by coincidence too.

I’m home now, home to an empty and quiet apartment, and an even emptier fridge, I just hate coming home and having to throw out things that’s past the expiration date, it’s horrible! My fridge is as empty as I feel now, it’s always so horrible going home to an empty place, a very quiet house, having to get used to the silence again. I’m too social for silence, I hate it!

But it will all be okay, I know that in just a few months, we will be together for good. No more missing each other, no more wishing and longing. In the meanwhile – I’ll try to make myself busy, I need my garden sorted out, I have got the most beautiful little garden plot, and it needs sorting, this year I’ll try to plant even more and get more salad and fruit from the garden, I can’t wait to get started!

Saw this at the airport, and it’s not a lie though – we (Denmark) have been voted “happiest nation” and that’s pretty damn awesome, I’m proud of my country!

A tribute to Denmark!

I love my country, anyone who has been to Denmark knows it’s small, cozy, art inspired, expensive at times, beautiful and friendly!

We are the country with probably the most bicycle lanes! We have them everywhere.

We have had many Eurovision wins throughout the years.

We are high on art, design and architecture and that is very visible inside of Copenhagen.

We have more pigs/live stock than we have people.

We are a farmer country, and are almost self reliant on most meat, dairy and grain.

Our capital is near the sea side, where we have tour boats around the canals.

We have the little mermaid on the peer at “Langelinie” and it’s very popular for tourists.

We love traditions and we stick to em, even tho we don’t really have a strong faith in anything. We just like the good old stuff.

We eat roast pork a lot, with boiled potatoes and gravy, we think it’s gorgeous.

Everyone in Denmark owns at least one bicycle per family, and we are proud of it.

We eat way too much at Christmas time and we tend to drink a lot at New Years, but we do watch ourselves normally and tend to exercise and eat healthy when possible.

Almost every city in Denmark have a beach, yep we are truly an island!

You rarely see stray animals run around on the streets in Denmark, and if that happens, it’s because someone lost a pet, and most Danes would actually catch the pet, and bring it home.

We are big on family gatherings, we love sitting around the table, eating a meal, talking about our day and how it’s been and share with each other.

Danish people mostly have one or two children tops, it’s rare to see a couple with more than two.

We never use colored light chains for Christmas – they find it tacky and over the top.

Danish people have mostly white walls, rarely in a color! Maybe one wall with wallpaper – but that’s very modern and “new generation”.

Danes rarely wear any bright colored jackets at winter time, and by god that’s true! Colors are mainly black, grey or navy blue.

We are proud of our Danish designs, and we have at least one designer item in our home, if not more.
