French Madame in Copenhagen: Day 3


After a long day of walking yesterday, my legs feel like they're packing all of
those delicious pastries from yesterday so I was in the mood for a more healthy
breakfast this morning...

Brødkunsten, Copenhagen

What went wrong?

Okay I know: it started at the bakery's counter where I was more mesmerized
by the Danish pastries than the rugbrød (Danish rye bread).

Then, there was a free sample tray on the counter from which I ate
a glazed sweet.

And, the friendly girl behind the counter told me that the croissants
were amazing... Sold!

Screw a healthy, hearty breakfast! Why go to a bakery, if you're not
going to pick up something sweet?

On to the best part of Copenhagen: Shopping!

Walking on this square, I stepped into Denmark's largest department
store, Magasin du Nord.


OWMYGOD, their shoe department is insane!! Such Pretty Ballerinas...
that's the name of the brand; Pretty Ballerinas.

They sparkled like Edward Cullen.

The cooking-floor could compete with Paris' La Grande Epicurie.

Kitchenaid Mixers

Danes love to bake. Countless of baking books :D
Too bad it's in Danish!

Magasin du Nord, Copenhagen

I bought some really beautiful items for my home.

After the high of shopping for clothes, I needed another high from sugar.
So I went to the basement level and rested at Agnes Cupcakes.

So good!!

After losing way too much money in Magasin du Nord, I walked along
Europe's longest pedestrian street Strøget and stepped into another
department store called Illum. Heaven again!

I think the staircase of the store pretty much sums it up what an amazing
store it was:

Again, I am seduced by a lovely bakery counter...

To buy or not to buy, that is the question.


Haha, all in all an wonderful day here again in lovely Copenhagen.
New love-affair with this city.
