Alana is a Brooklyn-based marketing professional and badass DJ known as LALA. We were lucky to get introduced to her by a dear friend, Carl Carrell, who describes her as a NY homie. We reached out to her, as we would love to promote more awesome and talented females!

Fortunately, she loved the idea of curating a LULU—LAND playlist for you guys on our Spotify. A mix of hip hop, soul, and R&B – feel-good music during and uncertain time. We absolutely love it and hope you'll enjoy it too! We'll definitely go see Alana do her thin' when we are allowed back in NY.

Instagramlove @dsanddurga

D.S. & DURGA is a niche perfume house founded in Brooklyn, NYC, in 2007 by a musician and an architect, D.S. (David Seth Moltz) and Durga (Kavi Moltz). The couple collect herb and floral essences from all over the world and hand craft them into the most incredible perfumes, inspired by music, literature, poetry, travel, history, and fine art.

We discovered the unique brand a little more than a year ago when we walked into their newly opened boutique at 255 Mulberry Street. We immediately fell in love with the universe they have created around their perfumes, the esthetics, and the unique scents. Our current favorite, I Don't Know What – a fragrance enhancer with a transparent radiance that gives any perfume a certain, as the French say, "I don't know what."

Visit D.S. & DURGA in 255 Mulberry Street SUN—WED 11-7 & THU—SAT 11-8 or online on

Instagramlove @carcelclothing

CARCEL — Meet the Danish design duo helping imprisoned Peruvian women find their independence. Since they first began their journey, we have been following these ladies and are genuinely inspired by their way of doing business. They just launched a new initiative; REIMAGINE! Check out their 1st drop launching today, May 20, 2020, at 10am CET here!

"REIMAGINE — The current business model of fashion is broken. We are joining the global movement to re-invent. We are cutting ties with the traditional retail model to avoid stock, seasons, and sales. Instead, we'll be launching drops exclusively online and finding new ways to collaborate with physical stores. This means introducing better prices, limited quantities, and the freedom to act beyond seasons. We are committed to progress. No compromise."

Instagramlove @costarastrology

Co—Star is probably one of the most hyped astrology apps at the moment. We actually don't really know if we believe in astrology or not. However, we've been following the Co—Start Instagram for some time and somehow enjoy the precise daily suggestions that are written in a fresh, quirky, and sometimes extremely brutal tone in the app - it's hilarious! Some days, it doesn't make sense at all; others, it feels like it could fit anyone, but from time to time, it surprisingly kind of makes sense, and it makes you reflect. With its sleek design and graceful illustrations, it's an amusing source of insight and reflection. You can download the app from the Co—Star website here.

Studio Olafur Eliasson — Olafur Eliasson's is one of our absolute favorite artists. His art is driven by his interests in perception, movement, embodied experience, and feelings of self. He strives to make the concerns of art relevant to society at large. Eliasson's works span sculpture, painting, photography, film, and installation and not limited to the confines of the museum and gallery. His practice engages the broader public sphere through architectural projects, interventions in civic space, arts education, policy-making, and issues of sustainability and climate change.

The team at Studio Olafur Eliasson comprises craftsmen, and specialized technicians, architects, archivists, art historians, web and graphic designers, filmmakers, cooks, and administrators – art is never boring with these people! While you're at it, check out their kitchen Instagram, @soe_kitchen, and the website

Instagramlove @framacph

FRAMA is a multi-disciplinary design brand that creates lifestyle objects that inspire the senses and encourage mindful living. FRAMA's work connects the imaginative and the practical with an emphasis on natural materials, simple geometries, and uncompromising quality, resulting in a uniquely warm and honest aesthetic. 

We are inspired by the contrasts and simply love the minimalistic design and the comfortable and cozy feeling we get when visiting the showroom housed in the historic St. Paul's Apotek (established in 1878) in the heart of Copenhagen.

Robin is another great friend of ours. He's an adventurer, a professional wakeboarder, an entrepreneur, and a genius at creating a chilled atmosphere and making people feel comfortable around him.

During summertime, you'll most likely find him in Copenhagen Cable Park (CCP), somewhere in the city on a skateboard, or welcoming guests in the evenings at the entrance of Gorilla or Pluto – some of the most prominent restaurants and late-night hang out spots in Copenhagen.

When the wake season ends, and the water in Denmark gets exceptionally cold, he usually travels far south to continue doing what he loves.

We know very few people with Robin's level of energy – but we absolutely love it! We admire his way of always being 100% true to himself, his courage to follow his own path, and do what makes him happy.

We feel very fortunate that Robin agreed to curate this week's LULU—LAND playlist on Spotify – a mix of chilled beach vibes combined with a bit of jungle fever. Enjoy

This quote by Theodore Roosevelt, from a speech at the Sorbonne in Paris, April 23, 1910, resonates with us. We have stumbled upon it several times lately, and thought to share it. It reminds us to be mindful of whom to take critique from and who’s opinion matter. It encourages us to keep doing what we are doing, taking risks, and daring to do things differently.

Jamil James Fearrington

Jamil is a Danish American soccer player, and a very dear friend of ours, who had a somewhat challenged and interesting path to where he is today.

He is born with music in his blood as his dad is the renowned Copenhagen based-American drummer Norman Fearrington, who played with, among others, Tina Turner, Santana, Billy Paul, David Bowie, and Ray Charles.

Growing up, it quickly became apparent that he hadn't just inherited his dad's knack for rhythm and music. He was also a talented athlete and a promising soccer player. Cutting a long story short, Jamil's soccer career became somewhat turbulent with its highs and lows. However, he refuses to let other people's preconceived attitudes keep him from living his dreams.

When we met Jamil almost 10 years ago, he was rootless, stumbling to find a foothold, and trying to figure his next move.

Today, he is still playing soccer and is educated as a professional coach. He produces music as a hobby and uses his experience and the lessons he learned, as a young adult, to teach challenged kids with difficult backgrounds in Copenhagen.

He has become a recognized voice in the Danish soccer world, not afraid to speak up when something isn't as it should be. For the past 3 years, he has put on his rainbow-colored captain band every time he has stepped into the soccer field to set focus on homophobia and discrimination.

Somehow, Jamil always seems to show up on our path exactly when he is meant to. He is one of the most supporting, loving, and considerate men we know. He didn't hesitate for a second to say yes when we asked him if he would curate a Spotify playlist for LULU—LAND – a mix of rap, soul, and R&B. Enjoy!

We meet Carl in a somewhat questionable hostel lobby in Bowery, Manhattan, NY, less than a year ago. He was in the city preparing for a couple of gigs, and we just arrived, jet-lagged out of this world from a 30 some hour flight from South East Asia. Both of us were only there for the night. Luckily, we connected before he went out in the night, and we fell asleep.

We feel very fortunate that Carl agreed to curate our very first LULU—LAND playlist on Spotify – a mix of funk, soul and disco, with a modern twist. Enjoy!

Remote Internship Opportunity!
Read more

LULU—LAND is a tiny global community for creative "kids," artists, photographers, designers, musicians, filmmakers, writers, athletes, and entrepreneurs – all of those to whom crazy ideas and thinking differently somehow comes naturally. A community that brings together like-minded creators, thinkers, troublemakers, popcorn brains, nomads, explorers, geeks, rebels, and curious outsiders, who thrive with fluid boundaries and whose restlessness and creative mindset are their greatest strengths.

LULU—LAND allows for fun ventures, collaborations, and crazy ideas at the stage where no one knows if they'll fly or fall. There are no rules. We experiment, we learn, and we grow in the process. We love to challenge the status quo, and we seek to move people. We're inspired by the madness around us and like to share that inspiration.

LULU—LAND is an idea of creating something; we don't know exactly what is yet. A space that emerges, evolves and develops over time, a platform that's able to grow with us. It's our workspace, an office, a creative studio and bureau, a shop, and a journal. It's a collection of ideas, curated inspiration, a pop-up store, events and happenings, an exhibition, a workshop, ... We never completely define it: in that sense, LULU—LAND is continually changing. The overall purpose is to inspire. We firmly believe that happiness is a journey, not a destination.

As a small startup, with limited resources, it's crucial for us that we spend our time right, and that both our interns and we feel like we're getting the most out of the internships we offer. Therefore, we always start by aligning expectations. We create a development plan for the time you are working with us and make sure to set clear development goals together.

As a remote intern at LULU—LAND, you'll get the chance to work with:

· Content creation
· Visual communication
· Graphic design
· Social media
· Copywriting
· Ecommerce
· Digital media
· Community management
· Project management
· Business development
· Research, etc.

If you're interested, please write and tell us;

1) a little bit about yourself

2) what you'll bring to our team

3) why you want to be our intern

4) most importantly, what inspires you?

The internship is unpaid [none of us are getting paid at this stage]. Therefore, we fully understand if you need to have another job or study at the same time, and we are flexible with the hours.

We are currently based in Copenhagen due to the COVID19 outbreak. However, you can work from anywhere you like as long as you have a computer and a stable internet connection :)

Brené Brown: The Power of Vulnerability
Read more

This video has made it into the list of our favorite TED talks, and it seems like we are not the only ones who think that this lady rocks. The Power of Vulnerability is one of the top five most viewed TED talks in the world, with over 47 million views.

Brené Brown is a research professor (/storyteller) at the University of Houston. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and is now using that work to explore a concept that she calls Wholeheartedness.

"Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness. It means cultivating the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough. It’s going to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that doesn’t change the truth that I am also brave and worthy of love and belonging."


If you find this TED talk as interesting as we did, you should also check out Brené Brown: The Call to Courage on Netflix as well.

It's a 2019 documentary film directed by Sandra Restrepo. The documentary depicts Brené Brown as she discusses what it takes to choose courage over comfort in today's culture.


If you still haven't had enough, she is also the author of five number one New York Times bestsellers:

Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts (2018)

Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone (2017)

Rising Strong: The Reckoning, The Rumble, The Revolution (2015)

Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead (2012)

The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are (2010)

... in one way or the other, to find a way through this madness. Everyone is under extraordinary pressure and dealing with an extreme degree of uncertainty. We don't know when this will end and exactly how the world will look like on the other side.

Essential workers and healthcare personal work their asses off, under challenging conditions, to get us through this nightmare. In some places, even without the necessary equipment and protective measures. Thank you!

Exposed elders and those at the highest risk deal with fear, isolation, and loneliness.

Parents have to find ways to manage homeschooling children while working full-time jobs, ordering groceries and cleaning at the same time.

Kids and young people miss their friends and everyday routines – students universities, etc.

No wonder a lot of us feel a sense of unease, restlessness, and even claustrophobia.

People lose their jobs with no safety net. Freelancers and creatives struggle to survive. Entrepreneurs and business owners see everything they have worked hard to built fall apart and are, to say the least, financially screwed.

Politicians are handling a pandemic and health crisis that affect the whole world while trying to avoid sending entire nations into a deep financial depression.

Families have lost, and families are losing loved ones to the virus every day.

I could go on ... but you get the point.

We all struggle in our own way! Be kind. Be considerate. Communicate. Listen. Don't be afraid to reach out if you need a hand and do what you can to help others through this madness.

I am fortunate enough to live in a country (Denmark) with a robust economy and social security system, that has reacted resolutely and without hesitation to the COVID19 outbreak. With a cautious optimism, it seems like we have managed to break the much talked about, curve. We are in lockdown but still allowed to go outside as long as we keep a safe distance and don't gather more than ten people.

However, it touches me deeply to see how other counties have reached and are reaching the limits of what their healthcare systems can handle, people are quarantined and restricted not to go outside of their homes – It's terrifying.

I consider NYC my second home, and it's unbearable to follow how the virus spreads at the speed of lightning, and how thousands are dying. I can't even start to imagine the powerlessness the New Yorkers must feel.

Horrible images from the situation in China and Southern Europe will probably be stuck in my memory forever.

At the same time, I'm blown away and astonished by the helpfulness and compassion I see everywhere around me. How people help each other overcome challenges and come together to fight this. Creativity is flourishing, that's for sure!

I personally worry about family members at risk, economy, my business, etc. For a second, I felt like I was back at square one when borders throughout Europe closed, and my plans to live and work from Barcelona for three months was canceled overnight.

I've been struggling with a sense of restlessness. I suck at being stuck in the same place for too long. I have found it unusually hard to motivate myself and get things done. I can't really figure out why I feel the way I do. I have been tired and not quite like myself, less productive and less inspired, which is kind of a problem when you are trying to make a living out of sharing inspiration.

In the beginning, I was super annoyed with myself and the situation. I felt paralyzed and unable to do anything, but I quickly realized that I had to knock myself out of the paralysis and remind myself that a lot of people are during a lot worse.

I had to do something and hope things would change as I move forward. Getting the LULU—LAND Shop up and running had been on my to-do list for months, but didn't have the time to focus on it. In the first week of the lockdown, I had the limited edition tote bags designed, printed, and ready to ship. In addition, I've tried to make new routines to fit the situation – habits that hopefully will benefit me when this is over as well.

  • I get up early and write down my thoughts every morning.
  • I try to schedule my days and the things that I want to do, to be more productive.
  • I've started to do home exercises. Nothing extensive. Just a few squats, sit-ups, and push-ups every day (My ass was getting flat).
  • I enjoy longs walks, while listening to music, or podcasts.
  • I have been eating healthier and I try to get into the habit of drinking more water (I drank like zero water before).
  • I read every night and try to get at least 8 hours of sleep.
  • I try my best to accept that this is an extraordinary situation, that things are not as they usually would be, and allow myself time for reflection and relaxation without becoming lazy.
  • I help creatives and small local businesses in the ways I can (Engage on social media, buy gift cards to my favorite coffee shops, take away, home delivery of flowers, etc.)
However, there is no one fits all. Really, take a bit of time for yourself to figure out what you need to be okay, even if it is just a few seconds (Breathe). Notice how you feel – it's okay. Do the things that you usually don't have time for. Accept the things you can't or don't get done right now. Let go of what's outside of your control and work with the things that are in your control. Try to be tolerant. Most people are pushed outside of their comfort zones. Everyone is dealing with their own s***. 

Yes, 2020 has been off to a terrible start, but at LULU—LAND, we are full of hope. We firmly believe that things will change for the better. There will be grieving of the past. However, we have been giving an opportunity to recalibrate, find out what's really important to us, and rethink how we do things. We feel confident that it will become easier to create positive and sustainable change in the future.

In the coming months, we will focus on gathering contributors for the LULU—LAND Journal. Creators, writers, artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, athletes, great thinkers, etc. who will love to share their stories, work, ideas, different perspectives and other inspiration. Our goal is to be able to update the journal daily within six months.

Further, we have a couple of exciting new collaborations coming up that we look forwards to share with you. Right now, we are working on a project called the "The Creative Manifest". If you are curious, sign-up to our newsletter and follow us on Instagram

Finally, we'll hopefully be able to expand our team by offering a remote internship. As our intern, you'll have the opportunity to work closely with us on developing LULU—LAND from anywhere you like (with a stable internet connection). Don't hesitate to contact us, if you're interested and want to know more. Write an email to, tell us a little bit about yourself, why you want to be our intern, and, most importantly, what inspires you.

Jérôme Vintage is a Copenhagen based vintage boutique specialized in selecting and selling fine vintage clothing. We love how they make vintage garments look stylish as f***.

Also, check out the little sis Rosy Vintage

"The rebellious and non conformist new girl on the block with immaculate taste and chic sense of style who has taken on the daunting task of changing the way we consume and think about fashion. Her mission is clear; to democratize vintage fashion and make it accessible for everyone regardless of gender, income, or origin without compromising neither the aesthetic appeal nor the exclusive shopping experience.

Rosy, was basically conceived from the wish and need to make consumers more aware of the negative consequences and environmental impact of the fashion industry. It is imperative that we move away from the current paradigm sooner rather than later and make a collective effort to see that vintage and resale, in general, become the norm rather than the exception. This is only possible when vintage fashion becomes more inclusive, more affordable, and more easily attainable."

Rumor has it that they are working on creating an online shop as well, you can sign up to their newsletter here.

Derek Sivers: The Meaning of Life
Read more


What is the meaning of life?

Ouch, that's a complex one. This explanation by Derek Sivers somehow resonates with us, and we hope you'll find it as interesting and inspiring as we do!

"Watch," or actually just listen, and let us know what you think.


There’s a true story about the student who showed up late to math class. He copied the problem that was already written on the board, assuming it was homework, and solved it that week. Only afterwards did he find out the teacher put it on the board as an example of an unsolvable problem.

This question — “What is the meaning of life?” — is the classic unsolvable problem. For thousands of years, people have been trying to figure it out. It’s the punchline cliché of unanswerable questions.

But right now, let’s be the naive ones that don’t know it’s considered unsolvable, and just figure out the meaning of life in under 20 minutes. OK?

LIFE IS __________

What word do you think goes in that blank? Life is what? Any ideas?

Let’s look at some of the different options that philosophers and smarties have said.


Some say life is time. Life is all about time. The definition of life is the time between when you’re born and when you die. So the literal meaning of life is time.

So if life is time, the way to have a good life is to use time wisely.

How can you use time wisely? Five ways.

1. Remember it’s limited

If you find out tonight that you’ve only got one year left to live, you’ll make the most of this next year. If you act like life is infinite, you won’t.

To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan, and not quite enough time.

Give yourself tight deadlines. Remember you could die at any time. Don’t delay.

How can you use time wisely?

2. Be mostly future-focused

Make most of your current actions serve your future self. Learn, practice, exercise, delay gratification, save and invest your money, and build towards your ideal future. People who do this are more successful and even happier.

But too much future focus leads to being a successful person on your 4th marriage, with no true friends. Too much future focus can take time away from important things that need you to be in the moment.

How can you use time wisely?

3. Be somewhat present-focused

Sometimes, pull your head out of the future, and give your full attention to the present. Relationships, communication, and sex require this.

But too much present focus is hedonism: living only for immediate gratification with as much excitement and novelty as possible.

Too much present focus leads to an empty bank account and no impulse control.

Too much present focus robs you of the deeper happiness of delayed gratification, achieving long-term goals, and developing valuable expertise.

How can you use time wisely?

4. Be somewhat past-focused

To remember your past is to live twice.

Keep your life in the context of the past, to see how far you’ve come.

Put aside time to re-interpret your past events, as a powerful reminder that you can re-interpret your present and future, too.

How can you use time wisely?

5. Get in the zone

You know the feeling of flow — where you’re focused on work that’s not too easy and not too hard — where the work itself has clear goals and is its own reward.

People at the end of their life who claimed to be the happiest with their life were the ones who had spent the most time in this state of flow.

For a good life, pursue the work that puts you in this state, and avoid the things that pull you from this state.

Let’s say life is time. What do you think? Pretty good argument?

Let’s look at another perspective.


Some say life is choice. Life is all about choice. You make a hundred little choices a day, and a hundred big choices in your life. These choices change your entire life. Your life is created by your choices. Therefore life IS choice.

So if life is choice, the way to have a good life is to make good choices.

How can you make good choices? Four ways.

1. Let instinct trump logic

The different parts of your brain started developing at different periods in evolution. The oldest part of your brain, the one that’s been evolving since we were fish, deals with instincts, fears, and gut feelings. The newest part of your brain, the one that’s pretty uniquely human, deals with logic, language, and predictions.

This newest part is still in beta. A $5 calculator can beat it at math. But this oldest part was launched a billion years ago, and has been in production and development ever since.

Everything you observe and learn is first processed by your logical brain, but then the results are permanently stored as instincts, fears, and gut feelings. Your instincts and emotions hold the culmination of everything you’ve ever observed and learned. So you’ll make better choices if you listen your instincts, instead of relying too much on your $5 calculator beta brain.

How can you make good choices?

2. Stop at good enough

You now have more options than ever. You try to choose the best option, the best career, the best school, and the best boyfriend/girlfriend/partner/spouse.

But thinking this way makes you feel worse about the choices you’ve made. You’re more aware than ever of all the options you didn’t choose, and the benefits of each.

So don’t seek the absolute best. Stop when you find an option that is good enough. You’ll make an equally good choice, but more importantly, you’ll feel much better about it. Happiness counts.

How can you make good choices?

3. Set limits

Every choice you have to make causes a little bit of pain. Having choice in life is good, but having more choice is not always better.

You’re happier when you let other people make some choices for you. If you’re very sick, you want your doctor to choose what’s best, not say, "There are dozens of good options. What do you want to do?" This is the appeal of religion. It gives you rules. It makes many of the choices for you.

So set limits to your choices in life. Cut off some options. Give yourself rules.

How can you make good choices?

4. Choose important not urgent

You know the difference between what’s long-term important versus short-term urgent.

What’s urgent are emails, texts, tweets, calls, and news.

What’s important is spending a thousand hours to learn a new skill that will really help you in your life or work. What’s important is giving your full undistracted attention to the important people in your life. What’s important is taking time to get exercise, or to collect and share what you’ve learned.

But none of these things will ever be urgent.

So you have to ignore the tempting cries of the urgent, and deliberately choose what you know is important.

So life is choice? What do you think? Pretty good argument? Let’s try another.


Some say life is memory. The future doesn’t exist. It’s something we imagine. The present is gone in a millisecond, so everything we experience in life is a memory. You could live a long life, but without a lot of memories, you only experienced a short life. If you don’t remember your life, it’s like it never happened. So life is memory.

So if life is memory, the way to have a good life is to make more memories.

How can you make memories?

Change routines. Break monotony. Move. Make a major change whenever you can. These are your chronological landmarks. These are the hooks where you’ll hang your memories.

Document it. Blog it. Not in a company’s walled garden, but in a format you can archive and look through in 50 years, or your grandkids can look through in 100 years. Keep a private blog for your future self, and tell the tales of where you’ve been, what you did, and the quirky people you’ve met along the way. You’ll be surprised how much you forget if you don’t record it.

Socrates said the unexamined life is not worth living. What about the forgotten life?

So life is memory? What do you think? Want to do another?


Both my smart friends and my spiritual friends insist that the meaning of life is learning — that the reason you’re here is to learn. Not just for your own sake, but for everyone alive, and future generations, the meaning of your life is to learn.

So if life is learning, the way to have a good life is to learn a lot.

How can you learn a lot?

Instead of talking about learning techniques, let’s talk about getting the right mindset, so you can learn more than you realize.

You’ve probably heard about the Fixed mindset and the Growth mindset.

The Fixed mindset says, "I am good at this" or "I am bad at this". This starts in childhood when your parents say, "You’re so good at math!" You think, "I’m good at math!" But then when you do poorly on one test, you think, "They were wrong. I’m not good at math.” Most people think this way. You can hear it when they say, “She’s a great singer” or “I’m just no good at dancing.”

The Growth mindset says, "Anyone can be good at anything. Skill comes only from practice."

Two impossibly hard tests were given to hundreds of children. After the first test, all of the students were praised, but half of the students were privately told these 6 words: "You must be good at this." The other half were privately told these 6 words: "You must have worked really hard."

When they were given the second test, the students who were told, "You must be good at this", did 20% worse on the 2nd test. Those 6 words encouraged a fixed mindset that made them feel there was no point in trying. You either are or you aren’t.

The students who were told "You must have worked really hard", did 30% better on the 2nd test. Those 6 words encouraged a growth mindset that made them feel that working harder made all the difference.

So that’s a +-50% difference in performance because of 6 quick words by one teacher.

Multiply that by all the people in your life, all the days you hear feedback, and all the things you tell yourself, and you can see how this simple difference in mindset can make or break a life of learning.

Parents, pay attention to this. You may be harming your kids when you tell them they’re good at things.

Successful people, pay attention to this. You may be harming yourself if you believe the praise that people give you. People tell you you’re great at what you do, never just that you must have worked hard.

So... life is learning? What do you think?


Should we look at the Buddhist idea that life is


Nah, that’s no fun.

Life is


Too ambiguous.

Life is


Too accurate.

Let’s change the subject.


A few years ago, I started learning Chinese. I’m fascinated with the writing. I’m trying to memorize how to write these characters.

Chinese characters look complicated, but they’re mostly made up of smaller simpler characters, the way that English words are made up of Latin roots and such. So you can remember the meaning of each character by knowing the meaning of its ingredients. For example:

语 language = words 讠+ five 五+ mouth 口

So... Language is words that at least five mouths speak? Brilliant!

谢 thank you = words 讠+ body 身+ inch 寸

Hmmm... This one is not so obvious. Maybe the idea is that when you say thanks, you speak words that give a body an inch of respectful space? That’s interesting.

名 name = evening 夕 + mouth 口

So your real name is what’s spoken by a mouth in the evening? That’s kind of romantic.

I get so curious about the historical or cultural meaning behind each one.

Let’s change the subject.


Talking Heads were a great band from the late-70s to mid-80s. Their lyrics were really evocative and mysterious. They made you wonder what they were really about.

Then I read an interview with the Talking Heads where they said that many of their lyrics were just random. They would write evocative phrases onto little pieces of paper, then throw them into a bowl, and shuffle them up. Then they’d pull them out, and put them into the song in that order. They did this because they liked how the listener creates meaning that wasn’t intended.

We assume that if someone writes a song, then sings it on stage into a microphone, that it must have meaning to them.

But nope. It was just random. Any meaning you think it contains was put there by you, the listener, not the writer. Like a Rorschach test.


I got so curious about the historical meaning of these Chinese characters that I got a Chinese etymological dictionary that tells the full history behind every one.

I looked up the examples I gave here, and found out those characters were just phonetic! Those composite character bits were NOT chosen for their meaning at all, just their sound!

So it seems I’ve just been putting the meanings into them, myself. They actually had no meaning at all!

It blew my mind. I had been memorizing hundreds of characters for months, reading all kinds of meaning into the ingredients of each one.

After recovering from that, I thought: How many other things in life really have no meaning? What else have I been putting my own meaning into, thinking it was true?


I know that we’re wired to do it. I know we survived on the savannah for eons because we evolved to look for patterns. Our ancestors are the ones who noticed the patterns of the tiger stripes or the lion face in the grass.

A moth is so deeply wired to fly towards the light that it may never accept that your light bulb is not the moon.

We are so deeply wired to find patterns that we may never accept that many things are just random.

We should have the same sympathy for our faulty wiring as we do for the moth. Evolution taught us to do this thing, but didn’t teach us to stop.

Give us some dots and a line, and we’ll see a face. Burn some toast and we’ll find Elvis in it.

A carrot from my garden looks like Jesus. What does it mean?

A black cat crossed my path as I walked under a ladder on Friday the 13th. What does it mean?

An old friend calls just a minute after I was thinking about them. What does it mean?

What does it mean that you went to a prestigious well-known school? What does it mean that you didn’t?

What does it mean that your good friend died? What does it mean that you’re tall?

What does it mean that you have a lot of followers online? What does it mean that you don’t?

What does it mean that you’re female? What does it mean that you’re male?

What does it mean that you’re an entrepreneur? What does it mean that you’re not?

What does it mean that all of your previous attempts at something have failed?

Nothing! Nothing at all.

Nothing has inherent meaning. Everything is only what it is and that’s it.

So let’s get back to our original question and wrap this up.

LIFE IS _____

What is the meaning of life?

LIFE IS ______








You can tell by the variety of answers that they are just projected meanings.

You can choose to project one of these meanings onto your life, if it makes you feel good, or improves your current actions.

But you know the real answer is clear and obvious now.

Life is (just) life. It doesn’t mean anything.

Erase any meaning you put into past events. Erase any meaning that’s holding you back. Erase those times where people said that this means that. None of it is real.

Life has no inherent meaning. Nothing has inherent meaning.

Life is a blank slate.

You’re free to project any meaning that serves you.

You’re free to do with it, anything you want.

Thank you.

"Popcorn Brain - Eating Chaos for Breakfast"
Read more


This is scary. For as long as I can remember, I have dreamed of writing a book. An actual real book. Like a book book. Not just any book, but a book that means something to me and has the potential to make a real difference to others. When I came up with the term “Popcorn Brain,” I knew that was it. My entire life, I’ve had the feeling of being different somehow. I’ve spent a considerable amount of time trying to figuring out why. Popcorn Brain is a reflection of this.

Through the process of defining what it means to have a Popcorn Brain, I realized that I’m not alone. Some have a Popcorn Brain by default; others experience to have a brain that “pops” occasionally or in periods of their lives. The book will explain the term, and provide strategies, methods, and tools to help structure “popcorn” thoughts, balance key areas of life, and gain/regain a sense of direction and purpose.

I promise I’ll do my absolute best to create a creative community that will be truly inspiring, worth following and being a part of. Moreover, I’ll keep you updated on the writing process and make Popcorn Brain strategies, methods, and tools available here on LULU—LAND.


No brain is exactly the same. A Popcorn Brain is a brain that pops a lot of thoughts and ideas, fast. It works perfectly well by its own set of rules. But rears at conformity. Some have a Popcorn Brain by default; others experience to have a brain that “pops” occasionally.

A Popcorn Brain doesn’t have a shortage of attention. It pays too much attention to everything. It can easily have four or five chains of thought going on simultaneously, at any given time. It can fast-forward from A to D, without considering B or C, and jump to solutions that no one else can see. It’s brilliant at absorbing new knowledge, understanding patterns, and assessing situations and information at the speed of lightning, which often makes it exceptionally accurate in predicting future events and outcomes.

It can simplify complexity, and it’s great at focusing on the bigger picture and visioning the future. It’s terrifically creative, intuitive, and adventurous. It can be highly imaginative and simply loves to explore new ideas. It’s curious and often thrives being challenged or thrown into a competitive environment. Some popcorn brains even tend to have a higher risk tolerance and thus become more natural entrepreneurs.

A Popcorn Brain can be so passionate about something that it can go into a stage of hyper-focus or flow that makes it able to forget everything else, including basic needs. Popcorn brains tend to be highly adaptive, and they’re greatly affected by their surroundings. For better and for worse. It makes them outstanding at dealing with change, but it can also make them insecure and question everything and everyone at once.

Popcorn brains excel at procrastination, as they tend to be sidetracked quickly and easily distracted by outside stimuli, as well as by internal thoughts and mind wandering. This might also explain an often highly developed ability to work and make decisions in high-pressure and chaotic environments. Popcorn brains “eat” chaos for breakfast.

A Popcorn Brain is wonderful and lively, but it can also be sensitive. It’s like a turbocharged engine that can go really fast. The only problem is that sometimes it goes too fast.

Popcorn brains can be impulsive and hyperactive. Some overtly hyperactive, others hyperactive internally. Restlessness is often one of a Popcorn Brain’s greatest strengths, as it can be turned into a powerful drive that makes it able to reach goals others might think of as crazy and impossible. However, it’s double-edged as restlessness also makes popcorn brains struggle at times. It’s a feeling that can make it hard to be present and stay in the same for too long. Popcorn brains have no respect for the status quo.

Having a Popcorn Brain can be both confusing and frustrating. It can make you restless, fidgety, and easily bored when it doesn’t feel like the outside world can keep up and become overwhelming when you’re the one who can’t keep up. A Popcorn Brain is fantastic, but it can also throw you off balance from time to time.

Many popcorn brains have had the feeling of being a misfit, in one way or the other. Despite that, most popcorn brains wouldn’t change anything if they could. Popcorn Brain has become an essential part of who they are.

Whether you are born with a Popcorn Brain, or it’s something that you experience occasionally, the strategies, tools, and methods in this book can help you structure your thoughts and clear your mind. It can help you focus, keep that focus, and set actionable goals as well as identifying your core values, give you a sense of direction and help you balance key areas of life.

I didn’t invent any of these strategies, methods, or tools. I somehow stumbled upon them along my way. I combined and developed them to work for myself and my Popcorn Brain. I hope that they’ll be as helpful to you, as they have been to me.

LULU—LAND is a 100% remote micro-business. We have been traveling around the world since day one. Our plan was to work from Barcelona in the upcoming months and then go to New York during summer.
However, due to the severity of the COVID-19 outbreak, we will stay in Copenhagen for an indefinite period of time. A tough decision, with severe economic consequences for a small newly established business, but nevertheless the only right decision. We love to travel, but we all need to take care of our selves and each other during this worldwide pandemic.
It feels surreal. We know that there are a lot of people and businesses affected a lot worse by this than we are. We want to encourage everyone to be mindful, considerate, and kind.
Help each other. Support the small creative businesses out there, struggling to survive this madness. Reach out to other people. Like, follow and comment on your favorite local business' social platforms. Make orders online and buy gift certificates if possible. It's the small things that make a difference in times like these.
To all of our friends traveling and working remotely around the world: please, postpone any travel, follow the recommendations made by WHO as well as by your governments in order to stay safe and help slow down the spread of the virus. Even though you are not at risk, locals and other people's loved ones are.
Stay happy, stay healthy, stay safe, and last but not least, stay home. Meanwhile, we will do our best to keep you inspired!

"Be A Lady They Said"
Read more

At LULU—LAND, we like to support people who dare. We find this message about the contradictory injunctions women faces in 2020 from Girl Girls Girls MagazineCamille Rainville & Cynthia Nixon incredibly powerful, timely, and important, in an age where we are redefining what it means to be female.
The short now-viral video unfolds the various meanings of the term “be a lady,” outlines the confusing nature of what it means to be a “real woman” and highlights the immense pressure and impossible standards women face in society today. We hope that this will help create a constructive and positive debate. Well done!

Men have needs. You look frumpy. Loosen up. Show some skin. Look sexy. Look hot. Don’t be so provocative. You’re asking for it. Wear black. Wear heels. You’re too dressed up. You’re too dressed down.

Be innocent. Be dirty. Be virginal. Be sexy. Be the cool girl. Don’t be like the other girls.

Be a lady they said. Don’t talk too loud. Don’t talk too much. Don’t take up space. Don’t sit like that. Don’t stand like that. Don’t be intimidating. Why are you so miserable? Don’t be a bitch. Don’t be so bossy. Don’t be assertive. Don’t overact. Don’t be so emotional. Don’t cry. Don’t yell. Don’t swear. Be passive. Be obedient. Endure the pain. Be pleasing. Don’t complain. Let him down easy. Boost his ego. Make him fall for you. Men want what they can’t have. Don’t give yourself away. Make him work for it. Men love the chase. Fold his clothes. Cook his dinner.

Don’t crack dirty jokes. Don’t smile at strangers. Don’t go out at night. Don’t trust anyone. Don’t say yes. Don’t say no.

Just “be a lady” they said.

What is creativity? Why do we create? What makes us innovators? What makes us human? And how do we face creative challenges?

These are some of the questions neuroscientist, author, and entrepreneur, David Eagleman, and composer Anthony Brandt investigate in the documentary: The Creative Brain.
We stumbled upon it somewhat by chance. It's not groundbreaking news for most creatives but worth a watch.
In the documentary, Eagleman explains how creativity works, unravel the creative process, and encourages all of us to be more creative. They seek to inspire and demystify the creative process while exploring brain-bending and risk-taking ways to spark creativity. By highlighting real-life examples of failure and success in the creative industry, they encourage all of us to self-reflect, discover our passion, and embrace our inherent human ability to be creative.

“Creativity doesn’t mean inventing something out of nothing, instead is about refashioning what already exists.”

What makes the documentary interesting is that it taps into the creative process of various innovators and accomplished professionals from across the creative spectrum:

  • Game of Thrones Co-Creator D.B. Weiss
  • Singer, Songwriter & Chef, Kelis Rogers
  • Architect, Bjarke Ingels
  • Novelist, Michael Chabon
  • Actor & Director Tim Robbins
  • Musician, Robert Glasper
  • Potter, Ehren Tool
  • Musician & Artist, Claire Elise Boucher (Grimes)
  • Nanotechnologist, Michelle Khine
  • Musician, Nick Cave
  • Inventor, Nathan Myhrvold
  • Movie Director, Animator & Producer, Phil Tippett



If the documentary makes you curious, the duo also wrote a book: 
The Runaway Species — a powerful, wide-ranging exploration of human creativity, which incisively explores how individuals, organizations, and educational institutions can benefit from fostering creativity while celebrating humanity’s unique ability to remake the world.

Instagram – a love and hate relationship. On the one hand, it is a fantastic source of inspiration. It enables us to explore and discover people, brands, and concepts we wouldn't necessarily find elsewhere. It allows us to share whatever we find inspiring, attract an audience, create a community, and share bits and pieces of our lives with others.

On the other hand, it can be extremely time-consuming, addicting and have some rather unfortunate side effects such as; leaving people feeling insufficient, pressured to live a "picture perfect"  life, not to mention the adverse effects on mental health.

And then there is the monitoring, the algorithms, and the non-linear timeline, which freaks us out when thinking too much about it. In general, we dislike the fact that social media platforms try to control our feed, figure out how we feel, what we would like to see, decide what we should be reading, have a say in what we are exposed to and when – It's SCARY. We would opt out of all the above and choose to have the chronological, non-monitored, non-filtered timeline back any day.

Nevertheless, we choose to focus on the positive aspects. For us, the key is — like with most other things in life — BALANCE. It goes without saying that it is inappropriate for us to spend a ridiculous amount of time with our heads buried in our phones. Looking at shit that makes us feel bad, spending way too much energy overthinking what we share and when to post. However, we believe that Instagram is fantastic when used in a healthy way.

In our experience, creating a healthy relationship with the platform is all about who we follow and how they make us feel. Just like in real life, we don't have to agree on everything, but we need to treat each other with kindness and respect. Naturally, we are closer to some people, attracted by certain concepts, brands, and types of businesses in periods of our lives for whatever reason, and that's okay.

Our simple advice is to take active control of your social media platforms and the time you spend on them. Make conscious decisions about who you follow. You don't have to follow anyone just because they follow you. You are free to follow, unfollow, mute, block, delete, and report whomever you want to at any giving time, if for some reason, whatever they post doesn't do anything good for you. Stay true to yourself, your feed is a representation of who you are and what you believe in. Do what fits you. Be responsible and mindful. The moment you have a following of even one real person, you have a responsibility. What you share may influence your audience. Make sure that whatever you do, makes you happy. Don't be a jerk and don't take it too seriously. Have fun! And finally ...

Don't forget to unfollow accounts
that make you feel like shit! 

We love to follow accounts that leave us feeling inspired, motivated, and curious. #instagramlove is a series of posts where we share some of the accounts we enjoy following.

#Instagramlove @tci_theclassyissue

The Classy Issue ( is a blog curated by Niclas von Schedvin. You've probably seen the branded logo shirts somewhere in cyberspace or on the streets. Eye-catching! When almost 500.000 people follow you for your taste in images – it's fair to say you must be on to something.

#instagramlove @joelrunyon

Joel Runyon is an American athlete and entrepreneur. He is the founder of IMPOSSIBLE – a company dedicated to helping people push their limits and do the impossible. In 2017 Joel became the youngest in the World to join the 7 Continents Ultra Club, having run an ultra on all 7 continents (yes, including Antarctica). Along the way, he raised money to built 7 schools for charity. Pretty badass!

#instagramlove @romandarkholme

We met Roman Darkholme in a dive bar in Lower East Side, NY, last year. We were immediately drawn to his personality and way of just being himself 100%. We absolutely love his videos and Instagram stories! He is ridiculously funny, loves beautiful men, and never seems to have a bad hair day. He is a talented filmmaker, a musician, and a gay with a phone (His words, not ours).

#instagramlove @the_yoni_empire

You should follow @the_yoni_empire if you are into conversations about sexuality and pleasure, combined with beautiful aesthetics. Elena Rossi teaches people to make love, works as an orgasm coach, and is the creator and product designer behind @onna_lifestyle. Yes, it’s toys for grown-ups.

Portrait: LULU

My name is Louise. And well, I am the founder and creator of LULU—LAND. Before starting LULU—LAND, I worked with management and business development in architecture and as a consultant in strategy, business development, and innovation at a Scandinavian consultancy.

I have always wanted to start a business that would allow me to work with a lot of different creative projects and travel at the same time. Eight months ago, I took the first step towards realizing my dream; I bought a one-way ticket to Bali and started working on what I, after countless hours of frustration, overthinking, and horrible alternatives, named LULU—LAND.

Traveling and working in various co-working spaces, in different countries, side by side with creators and entrepreneurs from around the world, made me feel more inspired than ever. So, I spent a lot of time contemplating how I would be able to share this inspiration. Inspiration is a weird and fluffy concept – it can be anything and everything at the same time. In the end, I decided to ask my friends what questions they would ask, someone who truly inspires them. I turned their answers into 50 interview questions, which, when answered, will create a series of LULU—LAND portraits.

As the founder, I am naturally LULU—LAND’s strongest supporter and worst critic. Therefore, it only seems fitting that I'll be the very first person to answer the questions, sharing a part of me with all of you, however intimidating that feels.

I would probably call myself a creative entrepreneur. I’ve founded LULU—LAND, co-founded APR (A Permanent Reminder), and I’m toying with the idea of writing a book called Popcorn Brain, and a couple of other projects.


What is the first thing you do in the morning?
I make coffee, pour a glass of orange juice, and take my supplements. I shower and eat breakfast – it's my favorite meal of the day. Sometimes, the order gets mixed up, but this is essentially what I do every morning, no matter where I am. As I have grown older, I have realized how much my morning affects the rest of my day. A stressful morning equals a stressful day. But a slow and calm morning often results in a more focused and productive day. I try to give myself two hours every morning (sometimes it's hard – I really like to sleep as well), preferably from 6.30-8.30 am, for my morning routine, including time for a bit of reading or writing. I started doing this while traveling. I read The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. I don’t write three pages every day, as she recommends, but maybe one or two pages – it helps me keep track of my thoughts, and a lot of new creative ideas come to life and evolve from these pages.

What is a typical day like for you?
Usually, I am out of the door between 8-9 am. If I am in Copenhagen, I’ll go to my office space near the meatpacking district, unless I have meetings or feel like working from a café. When I am traveling, I work from co-working spaces, cafés, or hotels with great Wi-Fi. I try to divide my day into work slots – I’ll have a break around lunchtime and again in the afternoon. I’ll go home around 5-6 pm, meet up with friends, attend a yoga class, workout or go for a run. I love running shorter distances like 5k – it's like meditation for me. I did run two marathons though, without the necessary preparation – not recommendable! If I do some of these things during the day, I often work from home in the evening. At some point I eat dinner when I have figured what to cook - not my force. God, my day sounds really boring, when being put into writing!

And now that we're at it – what are the last things you do before bedtime?
I turn my phone on flight mode. Undisturbed sleep is important. When I have a lot on my mind and feel restless, I tend to have trouble falling asleep, and I wake up like 4-5 times during the night. There was a time when I looked at my phone every time I woke up. Not a healthy habit. Turning my phone on flight mode helps me. I don't wake up because the phone lights up every time I receive a text or a call or other notifications pop up. I would like to get the phone and other electronic devices out of my bedroom. I have been thinking for a while that I should get an old-fashioned alarm clock – I keep putting it on my to-do lists, but never seem to get to it.

How do you spend your weekends?
I try not to work during the weekends and recharge. Depending on where I am, I do different things. When I travel, I try to explore the place I am at, go on short trips, be with friends or meet new people. When I’m back home in Copenhagen, I like to hang out with old friends and their kids or visit my family from time to time. When I don’t have any plans, and the weather is nice, I love to go for walks or just stroll around the city. On rainy days (and we do have a few of those in Copenhagen) I like to stay in bed, reading books, and watching documentaries, attend a hot yoga class or go to a museum (I love Louisiana).

I took my dad to Iceland for a weekend before I went traveling. I want to do things like that more often with the people I care about when I am home. The scenery was truly amazing, and it's a memory we have together for life.



When was the last time you celebrated?
I actually don’t remember. Awkward. I should do something about that. In general, I probably should be better at celebrating my achievements; I tend to move on quickly without acknowledging how far I’ve come.



What is your guilty pleasure?
At the moment, it’s burgers, fries, pineapple soda, and chocolate croissants! 

What is your superpower?
Being able to find ways that have not already been paved. My creativity, restlessness, and stubbornness. The latter two are, unfortunately, also my greatest weaknesses.



What could you spend all day talking about?
I could talk forever about how the way we are working is changing and about inspiration, what inspires me, other people, where to find it. And about traveling and working remotely.


What inspires you?
People who dare to do things differently, bravery, energy, great entrepreneurial stories, kindness, traveling and being in New York.



Repeat or shuffle? What have you been listening to lately, and what are you humming in the shower?
Definitely repeat – that’s my thing. I listen to a track over and over again until I can’t stand it anymore. It’s awful. Lately, I have been listening to Drake and Jhené Aiko, From time, Birdy and Sam Feldt, Wild Horsesand Freja Kirk, All for you. Actually, Freja’s new album Pussyfied is the first in a long time where I have played the entire album on repeat.

I don’t sing or hum in the shower. I bring my phone with me into the shower instead. One or two phones may have suffered an untimely death on that account – I live in a traditional Nørrebro apartment with one of those tiny bathrooms, where you shower on top of the sink and toilet at the same time.

Poster or collectors’ items? If we gave you a million, what would be decorating your walls?
I love weird art or artists with an edge, like David Shrigley. I also like Jeppe Hein’s work, but I would probably buy a piece or two from my dear friend, and amazing artist, Rune Bosse who’s work often evolves around nature. With sensitivity and presence, he allows himself to explore and connect nature and assemble the world in new ways. If I could, I would buy one of his old pieces, which is a series of photographs of a block of ice lifted from a freezer only to be melted into the freezer again.


Newspapers, journals, magazines, online platforms, digital media, podcasts… you name it – how do you keep yourself updated, and what are your news sources?
I skim the online version of the Danish newspaper, Politiken, Office Magazine, Monocle, and The New York Times almost daily.

I love to visit kiosks, magazine shops and newsstands to check out printed magazines wherever I travel, the layout, the content, the editorials, etc. ­– an occupational habit – I'm educated in advertising, graphic design, visual, and creative communication. I recently stumbled upon Quoted Magazine – a magazine that was founded as a way of showcasing the beautiful diversity of New York City. It's not just a celebration of diversity in terms of race, gender, or sexual orientation, but also of thought, experience, ideology, and desire. Each issue features ten New Yorkers from all walks of life who invite everyone into their homes to experience the real New York. I love it.

I listen to the Danish podcast Her går det godt with Peter Falktoft and Esben Bjerre, every Friday, they make me laugh. They don’t take themselves too seriously, and they actually say out loud what a lot of people only dare to think. In general, I would like to listen to more podcasts.

A good friend recently told me to check out Derek Sivers and this video: “The meaning of life” – It really resonates with me. He argues that each of us are free to create our own meaning.

If you could have lunch with one person, alive or dead, who would that be?
That would be both of my granddads, Kai Hou and Børge Bøgeskov Pedersen. I think that I’m a combination of the two in a lot of ways, and I would love to be able to ask them questions about their lives that I didn’t get the chance to when I was a kid.


Books, movies, and/or series – what can you recommend?
Books: The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. It is an amazing book written as a twelve-week course on how to unleash your own creativity. I plan on making another post about this book, so I’ll stop myself from going into details.

Also, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck by Mark Manson, it’s an easy read, but I actually really liked some of his points. Especially the “Do something Principle.” He explains how motivation really works, that action isn’t just the effect of motivation, but also the cause of it. Taking advantage of this knowledge, we can actually re-orient our mindset. The conclusion is that if you lack the motivation to make an important change in your life, then do something, anything really, and then harness the reaction to that action as a way to begin motivating yourself.

I don’t really watch TV alone, as it tends to make me restless. But I like to watch documentaries, movies and occasionally series together with someone. Especially, with my brothers. I recently saw the miniseries “Unbelievable” with a friend. It’s a horrible story about a serial rapist in Washington and Colorado, but very captivating, and it portrays some badass women in an unpolished kind of way – highly recommendable.

I never watch flow tv or series where I have to wait for the next episode. I hate that. But I binge-watch, when I find a show that I like. I didn’t see Game of Thrones until season 7, but then I watched all 72 episodes in only three weeks – waiting for the final season was really aggravating.


Which three Instagram accounts should everyone follow?

Right now I like:




However, I find new inspiring accounts weekly.



Who was your first big love?
Leon. I was young and naive.


What's the single best realization you have ever had?
Work can be fun, it's okay to be different, and money doesn't make you happy. Money gives you security, opportunities, and makes some things easier. However, I have been the happiest when I have been broke as a duck. When happiness lives inside of you, you don't need money to chase it. You create your own story. You are free to change it. Decide that you are happy, and you'll get more of that and probably more out of life. If you decide to be unsatisfied with everything, then you'll never be able to discover all the wonderful things life can bring. It's basic law of attraction. It's simple, you become good at what you practice, whether that is being miserable or happy.

"Somehow, I managed to get accepted to the creative communication program, a program that only accepts 20 students a year, by drawing a huge dog shit on a piece of paper"

What's the best bad or crazy decision you have ever made? That moment that seemed so wrong but turned out so right. If you don't make bad or crazy decisions, have you then ever made a decision that changed your entire life?
My friends would say that I'm the champion of bad and crazy decisions. But in reality, they are not bad or crazy, just a bit unconventional. I live my life based on my intuition and my feelings – which tend to get me in the weirdest places and situations.

When I was 21, I lived in Jutland, and decided to apply to the Danish School of Media & Journalism. Somehow, I managed to get accepted to the creative communication program, a program that only takes 20 students a year, by drawing a huge dog shit on a piece of paper (We had to do an ad for dog food, and I panicked because I knew I couldn’t draw a dog - I wrote "Get more out of your dog!" next to the shit). With only a day’s notice, I had to uproot my life and find a place to live in Copenhagen, which is almost equivalent to finding a place to live in NYC. One and a half years later, I decided that studying advertising didn’t feel right, and I fought to be allowed to switch program and actually finished my degree in visual communication and graphic design instead.

During my studies, I met a lot of wonderfully creative and talented people, who unfortunately sucked at profiting from their talents. I figured that if I could balance both creativity and business, then I would be in a really good position. I applied to a master’s program at Copenhagen Business School in Management of creative business processes. CBS wasn’t initially fond of the idea of accepting someone with my creative background, but after FIVE months and EIGHT supplemental courses, they ran out of excuses and finally accepted me.

The last time I decided to go with my gut was when I asked my employer to be allowed to work remotely and for the commercial rights to my book. This request ended with me signing my own resignation as a consultant and saying goodbye to a steady paycheck. However, I have never been happier. Traveling and working remotely for the past eight months, developing my own concepts, and meeting the most fantastic people with similar mindsets around the world has been the greatest experience I’ve ever had, and I am sure l'll never regret this decision.


How are you, really? It's nice to check in every once in a while. 
I'm ok – I think. I have to admit starting two businesses while trying to write a book at the same time is kind of nerve-racking, but I'm happy, and I love what I do. And that is the most important thing for me right now.

When are you the happiest? 
When I travel, have the freedom to do what I love, and when I spend time with people I care about and who understands me. People that I don’t have to explain myself to all the time, where I can relax and be me. Also, when I dance and laugh. And there is something about sunrises and sunsets - they are calming and make you think that everything is going to be alright.


What scares you the most?
When I was a kid, I was terrified of dripping tabs, especially when I had to sleep. I was afraid that my family and I would drown. Fortunately, I have grown out of that. But I’m still scared of losing someone close to me.


What keeps you up at night these days?
Thinking about businesses and coding and how to do a freaking cookie banner that doesn’t look ugly as f*** and annoys people more than it protects them. And my financial situation. I have no idea if this will ever make me able to pay my rent. Right now, it certainly doesn’t.


Tell us one thing people would never know about you by just looking at you?
I don’t own a lot of things. I don’t have my own home. I don’t have any furniture. The things I have, have been stored for the past three years. Everything I have, basically fit into two bags, more or less. The freedom to travel and do whatever I want comes with a price. 

What habit would improve your life?
A lot of habits would change my life for the better lol. But I think doing one thing at the time might be the most effective one. I tend to do multiple things at the same time – switching back and forth between tasks. I think it would help me become more focused and productive if I were able to actually finish one thing before starting another – but again, then I wouldn’t be me.

We all have qualities that don't really have any rhyme or reason. What is one thing you don't understand about yourself? 
Oh, there are a lot of things I don't understand about myself. There is a famous saying by Aristotle "The more you know, the more you realize you don't know," and I think that's where I'm at, and that's okay – anything else would be boring.


What works for you at the moment, and what doesn’t?
The way I’m working right now works for me – I love that I’m in charge of my own time and can spend it all on my own projects. I feel more creative and energized than ever before and happy with what I do. On the other hand, my love life doesn’t work for me at all. It’s difficult to find someone, who understands, appreciates, and can keep up with, my popcorn brain, and whom I like in return.


When do you feel the most comfortable in your own skin?
When I travel. When I have a tan. When I prioritize to do good things for myself and the people I care about. When I’m able to take the time to meditate, do yoga, workout, check in on friends and family, and when I’m not surrounded by people focused on superficial and materialistic things. 

What makes you feel insecure?
Being around people that I can’t read or understand and who seems to have an agenda that I can’t quite figure out. People with a bad vibe! When I feel insecure, I become quiet and not quite like myself.

"I feel at home in New York. It's hard to explain. Somehow the chaos makes me feel calm and I always end up in New York when there is something important in my life I need to figure. I'd say that I'm in an open relationship with New York; it's getting more and more serious every time I visit. Eventually, I might have to move there"

What's the best thing about the next thing you are during?
I'm going to New York to work and meet friends for a couple of weeks. I really look forward to experience the city during Christmas time. I feel at home in New York. It's hard to explain. Somehow the chaos makes me feel calm and I always end up in New York when there is something important in my life I need to figure. I'd say that I'm in an open relationship with New York; it's getting more and more serious every time I visit. Eventually, I might have to move there.

"Plans are worthless– but planning is everything" – Dwight D. Eisenhower. What does the future look like for you – what are your dreams and goals?
Right now, I try to take one day at a time. I hope that I will be able to travel again soon and that I will find love – when I am ready for it. I would like a small family at some point and become a mom. Not right now, that would be a mess, but in the future, when I have become a bit better at the whole self-care-thing. I hope that I'll manage to finish Popcorn Brain and find an agent and a publisher who believes in me as an author, that LULU—LAND will become a success and that I'll get the chance to work together with a lot of inspiring people on different creative projects.



What (or who) motivates you in difficult times? 
My friends and family are a great support. But when the going gets tough, I get motivated by not knowing. Not knowing what will happen the next day, month, or year. Life in itself is ultimately too exciting to just give up and not find out what’s around the corner.

Good advice is priceless. What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten?
Instead of chasing happiness as a destination, decide to be happy now and look at happiness as a journey. If you decide that you’re happy, then that will make you attract more happiness. Once again, it’s that law of attraction.

"I often get compliments for my hair, my eyes, or my butt. But I really like it when people actually compliment my way of thinking or my loyalty to people I care about"

What is the kindest thing anyone ever said to you or the best compliment anyone ever gave you? 
Oh, maybe that I’m a Popcorn Brain, meant positively. I often get compliments for my hair, my eyes, or my butt. But I really like it when people actually compliment my way of thinking or my loyalty to people I care about.

How do you heal a broken heart?
I have no idea. Like literally. You think you are going to die each time, and then all of a sudden, things are okay again, and you can breathe. Time is a strange thing. Allow yourself to be sad, don’t try to hide it, it’s okay to be heartbroken – it just means that you dared to put yourself out there, that you gave love a chance.




What is going to be the next big thing? (concepts, businesses, ideas, mega trends, etc.)
I think we will start to hear a lot more about environmental sustainability, conscious consumption, minimalistic living, and how the way we are working is changing. The younger generations simply do not value the same things as our parents did, and that is going to create some interesting challenges. Young people do not want to spend their whole lives working just to make a living, they want a life, and they want the freedom and opportunity to spend that life in the best possible way. It’s more about finding your own path and figuring out what happiness means to you, I think…

We would love to find out about cool new places and things to do in your area. What are your favorite places? Where do you like to go to have fun? 
Ever since I came home, I have been recommending everyone I know to go to Costa Rica and experience the raw and uncompromising nature. But I feel kind of ambiguous because the amazing thing was that the nature was so untouched. I know that will change if too many people travel there.

On LULU—LAND, we try to share our recommendations everywhere we go in our stories and highlights. Please follow :) We will be in NY in the coming weeks.

What is the most favorite, most useful, and most useless object you own, respectively?

Favorite object: My Passport

Most useful object(s): My Mac Book Pro, notebooks, and my Yantra Mat. (An acupressure mat that helps me sleep like a baby. This needs a short explanation, I know. An acupressure mat is a foam mat with thousands of very sharp, short needles. You sit, lie, or stand on the mat for anywhere between 20 and 40 minutes. I know it sounds like it would feel completely miserable, but I swear it feels FANTASTIC. It takes away the feeling of restlessness and makes your entire body relax.

Most useless object(s): Some might argue that would be my stones and crystals. But I like them.


What was the last thing you searched for on your phone? Be careful: you might be required to show proof. 
The air train from JFK Airport to Jamaica Station – I hate spending money on transfer. I’d much rather spend it on food and having a good time.

Call or text? Which is better, and why?
Calls. Fewer misunderstandings.


What is your pet peeve?
Cats. I hate them! I’m sorry, but I do. Also, I’m not the biggest fan of stinginess.


What is the most interesting thing in your trash can?
Oh, I’ll have to check. 2 sec. It’s empty. My roomie must have taken it down again. I should start doing that more often. Now I feel bad.


You’ve been given an elephant. You can’t give it away or sell it. What would you do with it?
I love elephants! I would keep it for sure. I don’t know how, but I would find a way and name it Giraffe.



What is the meaning of life?
I don’t think I have figured this one out yet. Hopefully, I’ll have time. It’s definitely something with love, people, and relations. Maybe the meaning is something we decide for ourselves. Figuring out what happiness is to you. I don’t think it is the same for all of us.


"For me, success is doing something I love, something I think is funny, and that makes me happy. By trying, I’m not failing – only learning"

Look, mom, I made it! – How do you define success? 
In the continued act of trying and not giving up. I don’t believe in overnight success. For me, success is doing something I love, something I think is funny, and that makes me happy. By trying, I’m not failing – only learning. People tend to forget that “profitability” is only one parameter of success. I really like this quote from The Artist’s Way: “What we really want to do is what we are really meant to do. When we do what we are meant to do, money comes to us, doors open for us, we feel useful, and the work we do feels like play to us.” – Julia Cameron.



Name three people you would like to answer these questions?

Steph O’ Labbe, Entrepreneur (Vancouver)

Joel Runyon, Entrepreneur and founder of Impossible® (Austin)

Tyler James Koenig, Copywriter (California)  


How would you describe LULU—LAND?
It feels like I have answered this question a million times already, and I tend to explain it differently every time. I hope I’ll get better at this eventually or that someone else will be able to nail it for me. For now, I’ll just say that LULU—LAND is a wonderful creative mess.
