It is the time of the year where you have endless of private sales and you can't go to all of them. But this one is very interesting if you are looking for brands that are not mainstream. One of my favorite basic item brands for the kids is Popupshop and they have teamed up with something as cool as Fat Moose, making really cool men's outdoor, sport meets style clothes. So for the first time, I might actually be able to drag my husband with me ;)

Today, northern Europe's largest aquarium Den Blå Planet opened in Copenhagen. So if you are not afraid of crowds, the Easter Break is just perfect for visiting the more than 20.000 species. The aquarium is very impressive with its modern architecture and located by the sea on Amager. "The Blue Planet" as it is called is the home of fish and ocean animals from all over the world coming from warm and cold, fresh- and saltwater. The entire family will enjoy walking around with water all around you and you can say hello to hungry hammerheads if you dare. Bring you own lunch and enjoy it outside if the weather allows it or try the nordic cuisine from the famous Danish chef Claus Meyer at the café Øst. They have both children's menus, 5 high chairs and an excellent sea view. You can bring your stroller and diaper changing on the ground floor.
