Now, if this doesn’t make you want to schedule a trip, I don’t know what else will.
Remember learning about glaciers in 4th grade and thinking, “cool” but you never really gave a second thought that you could actually see one because they ACTUALLY EXIST? Glacier Lagoon, or as the Icelanders call it, Jökulsárlón, is such glacier and the lagoon is oh so furreal. Yes, there are seals swimming around. Sometimes the icebergs turn upside down and then you can see the smooth ice patterns like the second pic from the bottom. The patterns Mother Earth creates are really out of this world. Ha. Punny. The boat rental handed us some really sexy onesy jumpsuits to wear, which really made my day because it made me a cozy happy camper.
You liking Iceland so far? Yeah, this is only the first of my batch of pictures so you’ve got to to bear with me.
I’ll be posting more to Facebook so I don’t overwhelm you with 300+ pics of each stop. You’re welcome.
Well, it’s true what they say, Iceland is out of this world. I have so much to show you, but here’s a little teaser for now. Have a LOVELY weekend!
This went on this week:

Paul and I just decided to take a little road trip around the island of Iceland. We’ll be taking the southern route and ending up at Jökulsálón, the glacier lagoon. We are stoked! Thank you for all your tips on Iceland. It seems like everyone who has been here has loved it and I can see why. This place is phenomenal. I’ll most likely be silent for the next few days as we will be *deep breath* CAMPING.*
*Note: I don’t camp. This should be interesting.

And a HUGE thank you to Heidi from I’m with Leia who at the last minute raced (with her darling little one) over to pose as a model in terrific yellow. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Anywhoo, check out the full DIY at Oh Happy Day.
*Danes love repeating words for emphasis. I find myself faking Danish just by repeating a few select phrases in a really deep, gutteral voice and they seem to love it.

Check out the my first DIY for Brooklyn Bride. So easy and simple. I thought it’d be nice as a caketopper or on favor bags. For the full story go here. Have you checked out my decorating tips? If you like gold, you’ll love these ideas. And if you want something easy and powerful, check out this tip. I love writing for a wedding blog. It gives me the chance to think all my favorite things: fashion, DIYs, decor, food. Yes, it’s a perfect fit. And a huge thank you to Liv Colliander for stepping in to photograph. I haven’t found too many people around town who photograph products and she was up for the challenge. Speaking of, is there anyone in the Copenhagen area who wants to collaborate? Maybe some fun projects or photographing?
