While in Copenhagen, we caught up with Danish natives and influencer duo, To The Moon Honey. Bea and Liv told us about their motherhood platform and what they love about Copenhagen.

Tell us about To The MoonTo The Moon is a website where all aspects of motherhood are portrayed – the vulnerable parts as well as the happiest. We also offer trusted advice from some of the best experts, for pregnant women, mothers and conscious parents.

How did you come up with idea for To The Moon?Originally we knew each other from work – we were both beauty directors at competitive fashion magazines. We became pregnant at the same time and ended up giving birth on the same day – from there on our friendship kind of evolved. We were suddenly on the same page, searching for information and inspiration about being a mother, and not finding it anywhere. During a week together with our 9-months-old babies, in New York, we began to talk about the idea… We launched To The Moon Honey exactly one year later.

What do you love about Copenhagen?Copenhagen is a charming fairy tale city – there is so much history, great museums, beautiful buildings and last but not least so many good places to eat! You can walk or bike everywhere which is also very nice.

How would you describe Danish style?We always hear that people think Danish women are very stylish and we think they look good as well. It’s a fine line between being practical but at the same time looking chic.

How do you juggle your career and being mums?One of the first things we decided, when founding To The Moon Honey, was to make space for having small kids. We leave the office around 3pm to pick up our kids. Then we connect again over email or phones, after the kids have gone to sleep at night.
It works.

Describe yourselves in three wordsBea: “I would describe Liv as funny, clever – and just lovely.”

Liv: “I would describe Bea as hardworking, calm and very empathetic.”

Best piece of life advice you’ve ever been givenTo be present where you are – especially with your children – and especially in this modern world where it’s so easy to be many places at once. We both have memories from our childhood where our parents were always present when they were with us. Today the attachment theory is one of the most consolidated theories we have and we know that this is fundamental for children.
