Nok har jeg lavet en guide til hvad du kan give kvinderne i dit liv, men mange af os har også mange dejlige mænd i vores liv og de skal også have lækre gaver. Jeg har f.eks. både en far, en bedstefar og ikke mindre end 3 brødre. Så lidt herre julegave indkøb er vist også på sin plads. Udover gucci loafers, Wegner stole og lækre musik gadgets – så husk også at mange mænd (særligt fædre) bliver også meget glade for god vin og andre ting de kan komme i maven. Så hvis du er super sent ude med julegave shopping er der altid den dyre afdeling i Kvickly! Så må man flotte sig lidt. Ellers er der som sagt heroven over lidt inspiration til hvad du kan give mændene i dit liv. God fornøjelse.

english: I may have already done a guide for giving gifts to the women in your life, but many of us also have a lot of great men in our lives who also need awesome gifts. I myself have no less than a dad, a grandfather and 3 brothers. So a little male Christmas inspiration is also suited! Besides classic gucci loafers, Wegner chairs and awesome music gadgets – remember that many men (especially dads) love a good bottle of wine and other things they can put in their stomachs. So if you have been super late with your Christmas shopping this year, head to the expensive part of the wine section in your supermarket and splurge. Otherwise, click the links above and find some inspiration on what to give the men in your life. Enjoy!

SÅ blev det endelig min tur til at få fingrene i de eftertragtede læbestifter fra L’oréal Paris x Balmain samarbejdet! Jeg var lige ved at vælte postmanden da jeg så han havde “pakken” med til mig! Grunden til at jeg har glædet mig så meget til at skrive om disse produkter er ikke blot at emballagerne er flotte eller farverne er nye eller at det er ikoniske Olivier Rousteing der personligt har været inde over kollektionen. Selvom det selvfølgelig ikke er dårligt. Nej det er budskabet bag samarbejdet som jeg synes er vigtigt. Som i efterhånden ved så er L’oréal Paris kendt for at stikke en lap i vejret og kræve svar på de spørgsmål samfundet stiller. Problem stillinger skal italesættes og ikke mindst løses. L’oréal Paris x Balmain samarbejdet er bygget op et værdifællesskab som berøre fashion såvel som beauty, nemlig at der skal gøres op med konventionelle skønhedsfordomme. Diversitet skal hyldes og iscenesættes! Og det bliver det i sandhed her. Olivier Rousteing har med sin Balmain Army, længe sat fokus på skønhedsdiversitet, og hylder et bredere spektrum af kvinder. Dette budskab ses tydeligt igennem dette samarbejde med L’oréal Paris hvor der er farver til alle hudnuancer, farver til alle temperamenter, farver til alle typer kvinder. Som i kan se på billederne, er der 3 forskellige slags indpakning. De repræsentere 3 såkaldte “tribes” som jeg vil gennemgå nedenfor på engelsk, (så kan alle være med). Jeg har valgt mine 3 favoritter fra de 3 forskellige tribes ovenfor på billederne, dem jeg synes passer til den kvinde jeg er. En støvede taupe, en modig lilla og en dyb blå. Jeg var meget spændt på at få dem mellem fingrene og prøve dem på mig selv. Særligt den blå fra rock kollektionen har jeg haft mit øje på længe. Jeg ved ikke hvorfor men blå læbestift har jeg altid fundet vanvittigt sejt. På grund af mine egen læbefarve og nuancen af lige præcis denne blå blev mine læber næsten blå sorte. Den skal helt sikkert rockes til alverdens fester mellem jul og nytår, jeg elsker en næsten sort læbe og den blå farve er en fantastisk overraskelse i et makeup look. Måske jeg er en rock tribe chick. Jeg ved det ikke men jeg ved at vi alle er “worth it”. Så rock dine blå, pink, orange, brune eller røde læber. Bare vær den du er!

english: So, finally, it’ my turn to get my hands on the very wanted lipsticks from the L’Oréal Paris x Balmain collaboration! I almost knocked over the postman when I saw he had “the package” for me! The reason why I am so excited to write about this collaboration is not just that the packaging is beautiful or the new colors or because of the fact that it’s the iconic Olivier Rousteing that has been personally involved with this collection. Though, of course, that’s not bad. At all. No, it’s the message of this collaboration that’s important. As you probably know by now, L’oréal Paris are not the ones to keep quiet. They demand answers to the questions society ask. Problems must be solved and so L’oréal solves them. The L’oréal Paris x Balmain partnership is built from the same problem that affects fashion as well as beauty. We want to stand up to conventional beauty prejudices. Diversity must be shouted from the rooftops and celebrated! And so it will be. With his Balmain Army, Olivier Rousteing has celebrated beauty diversity, and welcomes a wider range of women. This message is clear through this collaboration with L’Oréal Paris. There are colors for all skin colors, colors for all temperaments, colors for all types of women. As you can see in the pictures, there are 3 different types of packaging. They represent 3 so-called “tribes” which I will go over below. I have chosen my 3 favorites shades from the 3 different tribes in the pictures above. Those I think fit the kind of woman I am. A dusty taupe, a brave purple and a deep blue. I was very excited to try them for myself. Especially the blue from the rock collection, I have had my eye on that one for a long time. I do not know why but I’ve always found a blue lipstick crazy cool. Because of my own lip color and the nuance of this blue, my lips became almost blueish black. I am definitely going to rock this color to a Christmas party or two. I love an almost black lip and the blue color is a wonderful surprise in a makeup look. Maybe I am a rock tribe chick. I don’t know, but I do know that we are all “worth it”. So rock your blue, pink, orange, brown or red lips. Just be who you are!

TRIBES

GLAMAZONE: The green glamazone packaging symbolizes adventure, freedom and safari. This tribe reminds us that women are strong and capable beings. The color range in this tribe are inspired by the earth and the deep of the jungle.
COUTURE: The black, classic packaging symbolizes Parisian culture and celebrates Balmain’s history. In this tribe you will find the perfect red and other lovely nuancen perfect for parties and glam.
ROCK: The vibrant blue packaging symbolized music and fashion and how these are inseparable. If you love to be a rebel, this is the tribe for you. Here we celebrate the daring, the ones who are true to who they are and don’t really care what others have to say about it.

I dag vil jeg dele noget med jer som står mit hjerte nær! Nemlig det at dele tøj med sin kæreste. Hvilket i min verden er vanvittig genialt! Ikke nok med at man på den måde kan anskaffe sig flere ting men man har måske også råd til en lidt dyrere og lækker ting! Sebastian og jeg er heldige i den forstand at vi er ret meget samme størrelse. Vi er næsten lige høje, har nogenlunde lige lange arme osv. Sebastian er dog en del bredere end mig henover skulderne og brystet (thank god) – så vi er ikke begge en small (thank god igen). Jeg er normalt en small/medium og Sebastian er en medium/large. Derfor kan vi sagtens dele items som jakker, hættetrøjer og t-shirts. Så det gør vi! Her er et eksempel på en af vores mange dele jakker. Vi har dog lånt den i 2 eksemplarer ellers er det jo bare mig i en jakke og Sebastian uden. Det går ikke rigtig. Jakken er lidt stor i det, derfor passer vi den begge fint i medium. På sebastian sidder den perfekt og på mig er den lidt oversize hvilket jeg synes passer rigtig godt til jakkens look. Vi burde alle dele mere, det er også bedre for planeten skal i huske! Hvem end der får sin kæreste til at købe et par “dele” glitter støvler skal lige smide mig en mail, så sender jeg sgu blomster! God fornøjelse!

english: Today I am going to share something with you that’s very close to my heart. And that is to share clothing items with ones boyfriend. Which to me is beyond genius! Not only is it then possible to have more clothes but it is also an opportunity to buy something a little more expensive because you are two to split the bill. Sebastian and I are lucky in the way that we are pretty much the same size. We are almost the same height, our arms are roughly the same length ect. But Sebastian is quite larger in the chest area and broader over the shoulders than I am (thank god) and we are not both a size small (thank god for that too). I normally wear a size small/medium and Sebastian wears a size medium/large. Thats why we can easily share items like jackets, hoodies and t-shirts. So that we do! Above you see an example of one of our many “shared jackets”. Of course for this particular post we have borrowed an extra one, otherwise it would be me in a jacket and Sebastian without one. Which wouldn’t make much sense I’m afraid. The jacket is slightly big in size therefore we can easily share a medium. It fit’s me oversize (which goes great with the style of the jacket) while it fits Sebastian perfectly. Win win! We should all share more, it’s also better for the planet! Btw; who ever get’s their boyfriend to buy a “shared” pair of glitter boots, e-mail me, I will send you flowers! Enjoy!

Ingen jul her på bloggen uden lidt lækre beauty favoritter. Da jeg begyndte min indsamling til dette års jule favorit post kunne jeg ret tidligt fornemme et gyldent mønster. Så jeg tog den derfra. Guld alle vegne! Måtte ud i byen og lede efter en orange baggrund og ta-da! Lige i tide, her er de så, mine favoritter. Jeg har valgt lidt mere et pampering tema denne gang. Krops pampering særligt. Gå i seng med din Sephora shea hårmaske på. Ta et bad om morgenen og brug Kiehl’s oile – til – skum cleanser. Den er vidunderlig. Tilfør lidt “holiday glam” ved at bruge L’oréal Paris’ paradise mascara og gør den ekstra særlig ved at bruge lidt guld mascara fra YSL beauty oven på. Lidt kinderødt, parfume, gylden body olie og så er du klar. Klar til at dans aftenen væk til alverdens fester. YUM! God fornøjelse.

english: No Christmas, here on the blog, without a bit of yummy beauty favorites. As I started to collect the products I wanted to show you this holiday season, I quickly noticed a slight gold pattern. And so I went from there. Gold everywhere! Popped out to buy an orange background and ta-da! Christmas faves right in time. I went for a more pampering orientated collection of favorites this year. Body pampering in particular. Go to sleep wearing the shea hairmask from Sephora and the honey mask from too cool for school, on your face. Shower in the morning and use the oil – to – foam body cleanser from Kiehl’s. It’s divine. For a little holiday glam apply the paradise mascara from L’oréal Paris but top it of with a dash of gold from the new gold mascara from YSL beauty. Blush, perfume and off you to. Perfectly glowing from that golden body oil and ready to party the night away. YUM! Enjoy!

Jeg har givet formidlingen “hverdags uniform” en del tanker på det sidste. Hvorfor er der nogle ting i vores garderobe som vi har tendenser til at bruge mere end andre? Ting vi bruger når vi ingenting skal eller når vi ikke rigtig tænker over hvad vi tager på. Det er som om der er lidt et mønster. Jeg har vist de samme tendenser i mange år. For mig er min hverdags uniform en blanding af noget jeg føler mig godt til pas i og noget jeg synes jeg ser godt ud (men afslappet) i. Det er ihvertfald helt sikkert, at jeg er en af dem der “underdresser”. Jeg tror faktisk at det, stilmæssigt, er den største forskel på Laura og jeg. Hun har tendens til at give den lidt for meget og jeg har tendens til at give den lidt for lidt. Men jeg har nu lært at når man endelig kender sit mønster så skal man også tage godt imod det og værne om det. Og med det mener jeg at man skal købe nogle rigtig lækre, solide items som støtter op om ens hverdags uniform så man i det mindste altid føler sig godt tilpas når man endelig tager den nemme vej, udenom klædeskabets mange udfordringer. Min hverdags uniform er som vist på billederne, jeans, en hoodie, sneakers, en eller anden form for kort skåret jakke og en kasket. Jeg har det for det meste på hvis jeg skal rundt i byen og hente ting, handle, i lufthavnen eller ud og gå en søndagstur. Altid det samme. Jeg mixer det selvfølgelig fra tid til anden med forskellige items fra min garderobe men det er det samme look. Så det her er min kvalitets bevidste udgave af min hverdags uniform. Hvordan ser din hverdags uniform ud?

english: I have given the term “everyday uniform” a lot of thought. Why is there some things that we always tend to wear more than other things? When we are doing nothing or we don’t think about what we throw on too much, there always seems to be a pattern. I have shown the same pattern for many years. For me it’s a mixture of what I feel comfortable in and what, I think, I look good (but casual) in. I am definitely an “underdresser” more and I am a “overdresser”. That’s a fact. I think that’s actually the biggest difference, style wise, between Laura and I. She has a tendency of going over the top and I have a tendency of going under the bar. But I have also come to realize that if you know your pattern, you should also acknowledge and embrace it. And by embrace it I mean, buy some really good items that support your “throw on” tendency so you always feel good when you actually take the “easy way out”. My everyday uniform or “easy way out” is jeans, a hoodie, sneaks, some sort of cropped jacket and a cap. It’s mostly what I wear if I am running errands, going to the airport or taking a sunday walk. Always the same. Although I mix it up with different items from time to time, it’s the same look. So here is my quality version of my everyday uniform. What does your everyday uniform look like?
