I usually order stuff from both Etsy, Wish, Ebay and Ali Express and it takes quite a while to get here, and I am running to the mail box every day, just to check.

There are a few not so great surprices when shopping online and the most annoying part of living in Denmark, is the constant VAT and taxes that are added to anything I buy abroad, and there are all these different rules as to what country its from.

Luckily I have a great man in my life, who builds the whole thing for me, so I can focus on being creative <3
