To socialize or talk informally preferably over a drink. Word forms: 3rd person singular present tense hobnobs, present participle hobnobbing, past tense, past participle hobnobbed.
But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
I came across this super-mega-cool Danish girl over Instagram a couple of months ago, and just thought “what a hell of a cool cat, I NEED ALL OF THIS!!!”. When she’s not traveling to Ibiza, hanging out at Roskilde festival or drinking wine with other cool danish cats – she’s also showroom coordinator for 9 PR in Copenhagen and the personal assistant of Emili Sindlev. But I teamed up with Frederikke for our 21 guis Qs to get the temperature up a bit, and I got some really juicy answers.
You’re writing a Tinder profile, describe yourself with five words.
First of all Im not that good at whole dating thing and don’t use Tinder, but if I had one I would describe myself as extrovert, honest, spontaneous, busy and aaaalways late…
On a range of 1-10, how spontaneous are you?10. My schedule is always very full with work and so, which is why Im better at spontaneous plans as I don’t always know when I have the time to do something. Also my mind is not so structured – I definitely live in the present (and by my calendar and reminders!!!!) and can only remember my plans for the rest of the day and not much longer… On the other hand arranged dates with my friends are sometimes better as I can then plan my days around that, but I always end up being very late.
What was your dream job as little?– I have always been into fashion and wanted to be a designer and stylist ever since I can remember – which are still my dream jobs. Also I wanted to be a singer or actor.
Who within your business industry would you bring to a deserted island?I would bring my bonus sister/mother/friend Lulu Henckel. I have known her for about 5 years and she is my biggest inspiration and supporter. With her I can both party and have deep and honest conversations.
How many shoes do you own?I just counted and I have 72 pairs of shoes…
If you was forced to get a tattoo, what would you do?
I dont have any tattoos and will never get any but if I was forced to have one I would get the yin and yang. That’s what I try to live after. Im very focused on my body and mind being in balance with the hectic life I have and for me its the perfect symbol of that. Also it’s about seeing the good in the bad and vice versa which is a big part of my life mantra of always being as positive as possible. There a special calm about the yin and yang and there are so many life lessons represented in it.
Which piece of clothing would you never wear but never throw away in your closet?
I don’t think I have any – Im quite sure I have worn everything in my closet at least once.
Which three famous people would you choose to have a Tequila night with?This answer is maybe a bit surprising but I have always been a huge fan of the danish group Det Brune Punktum consisting of Hella Joof, Peter Frödin and Martin Brygmann. I love everything about them – their music, personality and outlook of life. I would love the be the fourth member of that group.
Do you have any guilty pleasures?I truly have a sweet tooth. Also I love listening to sentimental songs – Im very deep when it comes to songs I can relate too.
If a cab and a limo had the same price range, which should you choose?I mean a limo for sure – i think everyone who knows me know i love feeling like a rockstar.
Where do you go on dates?As said earlier Im not that good at the whole dating thing, but since Im horrible at cooking I would choose somewhere with food as I don’t cook myself. Or just good drinks and a cosy atmosphere.
What are you really afraid of? Actually Im not really afraid of anything and have never been. I love danger. But if should choose one thing I think it would be robbery. Very materialistic hahaha.
If you only could eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would that be?
Icecream. And the creamy pasta at Hotel Costes. Sorry can’t choose.
Whom in the whole world would you like to work with?Where to even start? Cristóbal Balenciaga, Demna Gvasalia, Phoebe Philo, Alessandro Michele, Simon Jaquemus, Gabrielle Chanel, Martin Margiela – the list is so long.
What’s the absolutely most important in your life?Being in balance. Thats when Im the best to myself and the people around me.
When you go on a vacation, when do you pack your suitcase?The day before or hours before take off – again Im always last minute or late.
Me and Fanny are going on vacation, where do send us? Ibiza for relaxation. Paris for everything else.
At last, what are you doing this weekend?Friday: 8.00-9.00: Answer emails. 9.00-10.00: Boxing with my trainer Jon. 11.30-17.00: Meeting. 17.00-?: Friday bar (not sure if thats the correct translation)Saturday: 10.00-12.00: Shooting campaign. 12.00 – 15.00: Shopping and packing for Ibiza. 15.00: Take off to Ibiza.Sunday: Working on my tan lines.
And yes I checked my calendar and reminders for this answer.
Which is the best vs. worst gift you ever received?The best I think was money for my apartment – moving into my own apartment has been the best decision ever. The worst I think was a cooking book – I never cook and never think I will.
