Have You Thought About Your Valentine's Day Outfit?

Valentine's day is just around the corner and whether you are going out with some good friend for dinner or go to the movies, it is about time you find the perfect outfit! Mary is always an inspiration for me and I like to be inspired by her when choosing my own outfits. I made with post in collaboration with ThirdLove. I fancy the idea about the perfect valentine outfit focusing on finding the right bra and thought you would as well. I never really write about underwear here at the blog because it seems a little... inappropriate. Royals and underwear is not really the best combination to write about. It would be must easier if I just had a normal fashion blog. But then I thought what the ****, there is a first time for everything! Maybe you already know ThirdLove, maybe you don't which is why I want to introduce you to the concept and not least their personalized quiz, specially created for you to find the perfect bra celebrating valentine's day. Entering their website you face the headline "The best bra is one you never think about" which underpin ThirdLove's philosophy that a great bra feels good and makes you look better. Like clothes, bras is both useful and very individual. It all depends on who you are, what you like, what you do for a living and what you need. Underwear is a industry for itself and it takes a woman to understand and find the right bra. With ThirdLove's personalized valentine's quiz, you both get a guide to what to wear on valentine's day and maybe also something for further use when finding a new bra. Follow the arrows and find the bra that suits your valentine's date.

Danmarks Indsamling 2016

Saturday, February 5th

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary were present at the Danmarks Indsamling 2016 which took place in the Tivoli Concert Hall, Copenhagen.

Danmarks Indsamling 2016
Each year 12 humanitarian organizations goes along with Danmarks Radio (DR) to raise money for some of the world's poorest countries - Africa, Asia and Latin America. This collection will help to meet UN's 17 development goals which Crown Princess Mary also support working with Women Deliver. Both public organizations and private help to achieve these goals. No. 1 is to end extreme poverty and halve all other part os poverty by 2030. Danmarks Radio hosted Danmarks Indsamlingen for the first time in 2007. Read more about the fundraising here

One of the biggest fundraising projects we have in Denmark and of course the Crown Prince couple showed their commitment to support the world's poorest countries with their appearance at the annual Danmarks Indsamling 2016 in the Tivoli Concert Hall in Copenhagen. The show was live broadcasted on Saturday February 6th on Dr1 for not less than five hours. Whether or not the couple stayed their till the end I'm not sure about. For years they have been present at the show and like Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik, they gave a large amount of money to show their support. Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik's Foundation contributed with DKK 500,00 to the collection and Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary's Foundation with DKK 250,000, in total DKK 750.000. Since 2007 the foundation of Frederik and Mary have contributed with over DKK 1.3 million to humanitarian fundraising and nearly DKK 1.9 million from Margrethe and Henrik's fund. It's clear that our royal family put it out loud that they want to help developing countries. The couple arrived at the Tivoli Concert Hall shortly before the show was about to begin, both in high spirits. After a few photos in front of the press, the couple found their seats and they both seemed to enjoy spending a Saturday evening among the audience. Many different artists came to entertain the royal couple and the rest of Denmark's population and of course the audience in the Concert Hall. During the show people could call and donate money for the good cause. Many celebrities were ready to take any call and talk to those who wanted to donate money. Many of these Mary and Frederik greeted, gave hugs and heard all sorts of stories from Danes they had talked to during the evening. For sure you have seen the wonderful photo where Frederik get the chance to take some calls and Mary getting a hug from her dear friend Caroline Fleming. Wish I was the one calling and getting Frederik on the phone! I love that he did that. Finally after five hours it was reviled how much money had been gathered for the good cause of supporting some of the world's poorest countries: 97,870,606! Nearly DKK 98 million! That's truly amazing. Well done Denmark!!!!

Black is the ultimate evening colour. The little-black-dress is immortal such as its colour. Though the colour symbolizes lots of different thing, it's a colour that works no matter what you are attending and wherever you are going. Clearly something Mary knows which may be why she chose to wear only black at Saturday's show in Tivoli's Concert Hall. Because she has worn it once before, she knows that it works and that she looks good in what she's wearing. A winner for sure. Back in November 2015 when she attended DR Ultra Gala's It's Nice to be Nice show in Sønderborg we saw her in a similar black suit with the matching Julie Fagerholt Heartmade lace blouse. Not much was different, actually what I see it's only her hair that's different. The cap-toe pumps is from Gianvito Rossi which was just a little visible because of the length of her trousers. Her round diamond earrings  shone in the flashlight of the cameras, wauw. These earrings is by the way a perfect item in your basic jewellery box. Wearable at any occasion, day and night. Proudly Carlend Copenhagen has shared a picture of Mary on their Instagram of course because she was wearing their beautiful Vanessa clutch. So when did she wear it the most beautiful with: Hairdo vs. Curly? I kinda like it with the curly hair because it makes her so feminine but the hairdo makes her really elegant. I think this is a tough one.

The Cancer Society Award 2016

Tuesday, February 4th

Crown Princess Mary presented the Cancer Society's Award 2016 in Skuespilhuset, Copenhagen, on occasion of World Cancer Day.

Earlier this morning Mary participated in the conference on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in Humanitarian Crises at Christiansborg Castle where she gave the opening speech. It was a speech which caused quite a stir among the participants present at the conference. In the afternoon she attended the presentation of the Cancer Society's Award 2016, this is the fourth time she has the pleasure to hand over the award on World Cancer Day. It all took place in Skuespilhuset, Copenhagen. She arrived in a excellent mood, with a big smile on her face -as usual I tend to say. I think she finds a lot of joy supporting projects like this because it means so much to her. I think she on she top of the game, that place in her life where she has found out what matters to her as a person. Mary spend time on what matters most to her; to be a ''useful'' princess who uses the title she has been assigned to something more than just cut red bands with gold scissors, smile and wave in front of the cameras. All this I think reflects in the atmosphere surrounding her and her family. She seems claim and well balanced. Because of her charisma at the arrival, I think it was a great honor for her to be allowed once again to present this year's recipient of the Cancer Society's Award 2016 on occasion of the World Cancer Day. When she entered the stage and gave her speech to present the recipient Nurse and youth coordinator Maiken Hjerming, Mary was clearly moved by the situation.

"Maiken is primarily a nurse, but she is much more than that. Maiken has a unique ability to empathize with others' situation - to listen, to see their needs and do something to honor them." - Crown Princess Mary

Maiken Hjerming has been nominated by five young cancer patients to receive the award this year. She has helped to launch Kræftværket which is a hospital ward for young cancer patients aged 15-29 year olds. She has several years of experience in how solitude often can be a part of cancer patients life. With the award of DKK 50,000 the Cancer Society want to highlight the special efforts and outstanding example to inspire others to give cancer patients optimal treatment and care.

Well, well, well now we are talking! Mary in a brand new figure-hugging dress. Shortly after the first pictures were published I received ideas about who could be the designer and the fact that two other royals had worn a similar dress at previous events. I tend to agree with you who assume that Mary was wearing a similar dress as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, on her engagement day. In two different shaded of blue Mary wore a dress from Issa which by the way is the first time, as I know of. Even Duchess Stephanie of Luxembourg has been seen in this dress. Thanks to both Lurdes and Kate for telling me about the dress! A first I thought Mary was wearing a black Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress but that wasn't the case. You can't be right every time. I think it suits her very well; great length and beautiful with the v-neck and long sleeves. This makes it the perfect item to wear as a daytime- and evening dress. In the same lovely navy blue colour she added a pair of satin pumps from Gianvito Rossi and clutch. Both worn when she own her own attended a 50th birthday party at Tranekær Castle on August 8th in 2015. It was a birthday party hosted by Count Christian and his wife Countess Mette Ahlefeldt-Laurvig. Mary was dressed in this wonderful blue Erdem dress, maybe you remember it? It was at this party we saw the blue satin pumps for the first time such as the clutch. I suggested her clutch could be from Prada and with the help from my dear and beloved friend Pernille it has been confirmed. Thank you for your help! At the arrival she wore her grey JOSEPH coat worn over the shoulders which looked brilliant! Lately she's been choosing longer coats that at the same time look fabulous and makes her look longer. She accessorized the outfit with white gold rings from Ole Lynggaard and Marianne Dulong earrings featuring a blue pendant matching the rest of the outfit. Her makeup and hair were incredible beautiful! A side chignon and elegant evening makeup. Lips and nails in berry red, what is not to love? A timeless classic outfit I'm sure we will see again.
