5 SHADES OF NUDE

Essie Polish
1. Merino cool 2. Master plan 3. Spin the bottle 4. Clothing optional 5. Lady like

Når man nærmest samler på nude lakker kan man godt ende op med rigtig mange i sit skab. Og de ligger jo bare der, kigger på dig hver gang du åbner låget til din neglelak kasse “pick me pick me”. Det er ihvertfald det jeg forstiller mig de siger, måske de tænker “not me not me” fordi de ikke vil bruges op? Who knows. Jeg er begyndt at bruge mine lakker mere, forsøger at finde nye måder at “style” dem på så jeg kommer igennem flere og ikke bare bruger de samme tre som jeg tror mange har tendens til. Mit seneste yndlings look at lave er dette “5 shades of nude” hvor jeg har taget mine yndlings nude nuancer (lige nu) og lagt dem på forskellige fingre. Synes selv det er ret fint. Jeg blev endda stoppet i fakta af en dame som spurgte hvor hun kunne få lavet negle som mine. Jeg var meget stolt men måtte dog skuffe hende da jeg sagde jeg selv havde lavet dem. Men mon ikke en salon kan lave det samme look. I think so. God fornøjelse!

english: When you are what I would almost call a “nude polish collector” you can end up with more than a few in storage. And they just lay there, looking at you every time you open the lid to the box “pick me pick me”. That’s what I imagine anyway, maybe they are all “not me not me” because they don’t want to have the color sucked out of them? No one knows. I want to use all my polishes more so I have tried different ways to “style” them using more than one color. My favorite combo right now is this “5 shades of nude” look where I have taken my favorite nude shades (at the moment) and used one color on each nail. I quite like it myself, I was even stopped at my local supermarket by a lady who would love to know who did my nails. I unfortunately had to let her down by telling her I did them myself. But of course any salon can do the same look. I think so anyway? Enjoy!

Modeugen er slut og jeg sidder igen her, på min pind i indre by og lytter til metro byggeriets brummen. Der er kasser over alt i lejligheden fra modeuge udlån og lige nu kan jeg kun kigge på dem, orker nærmest ikke at begynde at organisere det tøj som gemmer sig i dem. Solen skinner og jeg vil egentlig helst ligge på Ofelia plads og muligvis tage mig en lur (kan ikke love noget). Dog er der massere der skal laves så jeg må hellere komme igang i stedet for at sidde her og plapre på bloggen, staves det egentlig med p eller b? Begge dele lyder rigtigt. Anyway – her et lille kig på mit sidste outfit under modeugen, jeg elsker den her kjole! Simpelthen så fin. God tirsdag der ude!

english: Fashionweek is over and I am sitting here again, at my desk in central Copenhagen listening to the slight humming of the metro construction. There are boxes everywhere in the apartment filled with lend outs from fashionweek and I am not in the mood to open them to sort out the mess inside of them. The sun is shining and I would much rather be on a bench somewhere, possibly taking a nap (I can’t make any promises). But there is tons to be done so I better go ahead and do them than just sitting here babbling away. Here is a peek at my last outfit from fashionweek, I love this dress! It’s so cute. Happy Tuesday!

Designers remix show SS18

Location: Copenhagen
Photos taken with Canon 5D 

I torsdags havde jeg fornøjelsen af at være backstage sammen med Sebastian Professional til Designers remix showet og det var en sand fornøjelse. Den hektiske stemning backstage er helt særlig. Makeup pensler ryger igennem rummet, hårtørrerne svinger fra side til side – nogengange så hurtigt man slet ikke når at se hvad der sker. Et spray her, et pust der og lige pludselige er de ude af døren igen. Modellerne rockede en kort 60’er fringe med massere bevægelse i spidserne og sejt pandehår. Bløde krøller blandet med fransk skødesløshed, det var smukt, simpelt og klædte både modellerne og kollektionen. Sebastian professional teamet brugte produkter fra deres nye “Twisted line-up” styling linje med alge ekstrakt som giver en helt særlig fleksibilitet og “bounce” til håret. Det var intet mindre end super inspirerende at se så stort og internationalt et team skabe så stærkt et look. I kan læse mere om Sebastian Professionals nye linje her. God fornøjelse.

english: Thursday I had the pleasure of joining the international Sebastian professional team backstage at the Designers Remix show and it was such a pleasure. The hectic vibe backstage is something truly special. Makeup brushes flying through the air, hairdryers swinging from side to side – sometimes so fast you don’t even have a chance to realize what is happening around you. A spray here, a spray there and suddenly they are out the door again. The models rocked a short 60’s fringe with tons of movemens in the ends and super cool bangs. Soft curls mixed with the casualness of a french girl, it was beautiful, simple and complimented both the girls and the collection. The Sebastian Professional team used products from their new “Twisted line-up” styling series with red seaweed extract which gives a certain flexibility and bounce to the hair. It was noting less than inspiring to watch such a big and international team form a look like this. You can read more about Sebastian Professionals new line here. Enjoy!

Første dag under den københavnske modeuge var en dejlig stille en. Kun et par enkelte shows, lidt events og ellers bare hygge med alle de søde mennesker. Et af de shows jeg havde glædet mig aller mest til denne sæson var Anne Vest som blev afholdt i tirsdags. Jeg var så svine heldig at blive klædt i intet mindre end det fine SS18 tøj som gik på catwalken og jeg nød hvert et minut af det. Denne fantastiske oversize skjorte er jeg helt på rumpen over, den sidder fantastisk, faldet smukt både foran og bagpå og så er jeg jo en ægte sucker for kæmpe store ærmer. Win! I dag står den på intet mindre end endnu flere shows samt en super fed backstage opgave som jeg glæder mig til at dele med jer her på bloggen snarrest! God torsdag!

english: First day of Copenhagen fashionweek was a nice and easy going one. Only a few shows, some events and a little chit and a lot of chat. One of the shows that I was looking forward to the most this season was Anne Vest. I was so lucky to be dressed in nothing less than the SS18 collection that walked the runway right in front of my eyes and I enjoyed every minute of it. This fantastic oversize shirt is made of dreams. It has a perfect fit, falls beautifully both in the front and in the back and you know I love me some huge sleeves. Win! Today there are more shoes and a super cool backstage job that I can’t wait to share with you! Happy Thursday!

Copenhagen Fashionweek

Så er det den tid igen, heldigvis! Jeg elsker fashionweek! Dem alle sammen, det er så sjovt og det er vildt hyggeligt at se hinanden i branchen. Nu går Københavns modeuge endelig igang og jeg synes jeg ville dele hvad jeg altid har med mig i min taske. Er den ikke bare alt for fin btw? Den nye Proenza Schouler taske? Ih den måtte gerne være min! Husk forresten at hvis du er i København kan du også deltage i en række events under modeugen, se eventuelt mere her. God fornøjelse!

english: It’s that time again, yay! I love fashionweek! All of them, it’s so much fun and so nice to see everybody in the business. Copenhagen fashionweek has officially started so I thought I would share what I always bring with me in my bag. Isn’t it nice btw? The new Proenza Schouler bag? Aw I want it to be mine! If you are in Copenhagen you can also participate in some events during the week, you should check out which here. Enjoy!

1. GUM, it’s a must. You eat sooo much weird stuff at all these events so gum is necessary. Think of all the people you speak with during the day, ouch.
Gum / Stimorol 

2. Eyedrops, yes eyedrops. It might seem a bit odd I suppose but I have found them to be extremely helpful during these super long days. Nothing worse than looking like a tired slob in your streetstyle photos.
Single pack eyedrops / Zaditen

3. I always carry some transparent powder with me in my bag. My favorite is this one from Marc Jacobs – it can quickly mattify my face but also save me in situations where my hair might look a little “worn all day greasy” if you know what I mean. Plus this compact has a mirror so you can check your teeth and lipstick during the day!
Transparent powder / Marc Jacobs beauty (shop here)

4. Charge on the run, your poor phone is going to run dry during fashionweek so pack up some juice for it!
Powerbank / unknown

5. A quick brow fix is a musthave for me on the go, I wouldn’t go anywhere without it. This one from L’oréal Paris is my favorite, it’s easy to use, has nice packaging and is a great size for any bag.
Brow artist plumper / L’oréal Paris (shop here)

6. I just got a new phone, so obviously I need to have a cute cover. You can’t attend Fashionweek without your phone looking flawless!
iPhone 7+ cover / Dolce & Gabbana (shop here)

7. I am one of those people who has a tendency to feel sick if I become too hungry so I always carry a snackbar (or two) with me when I am on the run.
Raw bar / Linuspro nutrition (shop here)

8. Sunglasses is a must, the look cool and can give your eyes a bit of a rest while the models walk the runway. You have to nap when you can girl.
Sunglasses / Céline (shop here)

9. Lip balm is a lifesaver, it is as important to me as my keys. This one from Kiehls has a little bit of a tint to it which looks super cute in pictures.
Tinted lip balm / Kiehls (shop here)

10. The bag, probably the most important – the streetstyle photographers don’t really care what you have inside as long as the bag is awesome!
Bag / Proenza Schouler (shop here

Happy Fashionweek!

Sommertøj med et lille twist af efterår, det burde først være midt september et look som dette blev lagt på bloggen men helt ærlig, det er jo ikke sommer udenfor. At have bare ben er næsten for koldt men screw that, jeg gør det fanme alligevel! Ja undskyld mit sprog men jeg er mildest talt træt af det. Heldigvis kan jeg trøste mig med at efterårsvarene er fantastiske og på den måde er det jo dejligt de allerede kan komme på. Jeg elsker den her jakke fra M Missoni, den kommer til at hænge på mig indtil det sner.

english: Summer outfit with a twist of fall, I shouldn’t be posting anything about fall until a good way into September but come on, it’s not summer here in Denmark. It’s almost too cold to have bear legs but screw that! I do it anyway. Excuse my language but I am sooo tired of this weather. Luckily I am comforted by all the amazing new fall styles that I get to peek at already since it’s not too hot. I love this jacket from M Missoni, I am going to wear it until it snows.
