Reaching the Pinnacles

Reaching the Pinnacles | Adventures in California | Rebecca Hawkes

  With all creative endeavours you need to refill the creative tanks. My refill came a few weeks ago with a trip along the West Coast of California. Timing the trip to fit with Designer Vaca in Palm Springs and bridging the trip by starting in San Francisco and visiting friends, my road trip took …

One photo every hour | A Saturday in October

One photo every hour | A Saturday in October ~ Rebecca Hawkes

A day in my life as a designer looking for inspiration outside of the usual ‘office hours’. One Saturday in October I took one photo every hour to show how I get back in touch with my creativity and give myself time to create. 9am – 10am As its the weekend I don’t even attempt …

Find your happy place | Moving to Copenhagen

Move to Copenhagen | Rebecca Hawkes Diary

We all have places in this world that make us feel more creative, more productive and more ourselves. Sometime it is an area of your home where you feel most comfortable, the light rolls in and the playlist is always on point. Other times it a cafĂ© where they know your order from the moment …

One busy week in the big smoke

Putting these images together I came across photos I took last summer. At the time you become so caught up in the moments and how fast time is passing to fully appreciate the beauty, now looking back I feel very blessed to have seen so many beautiful scenes with my own eyes and then have …

Danes start the new year with a bang

2014 went out with a bang. Several of them. From becoming tour guides and host, to the joys of spending the last few days of the year with those closest to my heart, our year finished with a final bang as Danes light up the streets with streams of fireworks. We were in Copenhagen, a …

A winter wonderland

For weeks before Christmas myself and my family had our fingers crossed for snow. They had previously come to Norway for Christmas for years ago when snow came up to your knees and the temperatures reached the minus twenties. The weather did not look promising as we continually checked the upcoming forecast. But as miracles …

London’s Calling

From Amsterdam to London. The city on my passport but also a city on my homecoming still feels a little like a mystery. London is so large and is ever changing that I feel like a new gem is waiting around the corner for me. Even in the dirtiest or in what appears to be …

Helicopter Roller-coaster

Riding a helicopter is more like taking a spin in a hover craft. Miles above the world, watching clouds pass over rivers, circling my boyfriend parents home (and subsequent nausea!), there is a reason many count being surrounded by the clouds, as magical. Taking a spin (a dip and hover) was a luxury I was …

Country Bumpkins…Or the Norwegian equivalent

Where did I go? I left this blog for just a little over a week. My links for Friday’s guide are adding up and the photos and projects I have to share are multiplying. Like most, I needed to take a little break. Refresh in the countryside and try to stop checking Instagram. I succeeded …

Roadtrip Special | France Pt.2

…And so the story continues. With a succession of images of course! After roadtriping across the country we had a few more pit-stops before delivering our rental car to Paris. While researching one night it quickly dawn on me that we had the opportunity to visit Versailles before hitting Paris. I have always longed to …
