Inspiration on the Danish Riviera! May 13 2015

If you only have a few days free this summer to plan something special, forget about longhaul flights to faraway destinations! Ilse Jacobsen has a beautiful Spa on the Danish riviera. Hornbaek is a picturesque beachtown north of Copenhagen. Because you don't travel so far the positives of the stay isn't wiped out as you trek home across continents! 

As if days lounging on this beach isn't special enough on it's own, you can now also check into Kurbadet for special treatments. There is also a restaurant that offers highend scandinavian cuisine as portrayed in the second series of BBCs Nordic Cookery that will air this summer. It sees Ilse cooking with the program host Tariq Taylor.

A trip to Hornbaek will restore any imbalances you feel, and who knows you might feel as creative as Ilse herself. She always contributes her creative ideas to this gem on the coast, and it's very easy to see  how inspiration would hit you as you wander on this beach with powdery sand between your toes; eating ice-cream and letting the gentle breeze create perfect beach hair for you!

We have already packed our flip flops for our trip in June! We can't wait!

Have you had the pleasure? April 15 2014

The Ilse Jacobsen Flip Flops are gaining a bit of a cult following. Once your feet have had the pleasure you just can't stop wearing them. As soon as the degrees hit double digits we start yearning to wear them. We wear them indoors and check the outside temperature to see 'is today the day we can start waring them outside?'. And hooray! For us today was the day! The test walk to the postbox proved that 'yes' we didn't get frostbite, and the time has come to ensure that our feet are properly pedicure-pampered. Goodbye shoes; see you in September! For the next five months it will be nothing but flip flips for us! One in each colour please!
