Kender du det når jeans er alfa og omega? Jeans kan få dig til at få det mega, vanvittig godt med dig selv og de kan få dig til at føle dig helt ved siden af. Er det ikke rigtigt? Dårlige jeans er lig med dårlig dag. Gode jeans er lig med lykke – så meget lykke endda, at man nogengange tænker at man ikke behøver at have ret meget mere på. Personligt går jeg meget op i kvaliteten af den denim som er blevet brugt til mine jeans. Jeg kan godt lide ægte denim, helst ikke med stræk og gerne den næsten rå slags hvor man kan se når man har gået med dem, men også hvor man kan se når de er helt nye. Closed jeans har længe været et af mine go to mærker, også længe før jeg var blogger. De har tonsvis af modeller som omfavner mange typer kroppe og heldigvis også de lange, tynde som mig. Gode jeans, så behøver man ikke have mere på, gør man?

english: You know that feeling when jeans are just alfa and omega? Jeans can make you feel incredibly good about yourself just like they can also make you feel quite shitty. It’s true right? Bad jeans equal a bad day, good jeans equal happiness – so much so you sometimes feel like you don’t need to wear much more than just those perfect jeans. Personally I care a great deal about the quality of the denim used to create the jeans I wear. I like real denim, not the stretchy kind. I like it when they feel kinda raw and you can see how much they have been worn or how little they have been worn, yet. Closed jeans have been one of my go to jean brands for many years, also long before I became a blogger. They have many models that fit many types and luckily also the tall, skinny kind like me. Good jeans, you don’t need (to wear) much else, right?

I dag er der mindre end en uge til at jeg vender snuden hjem mod Danmark igen. Man siger tiden går hurtigt, jo ældre jeg bliver, desto mere enig bliver jeg. Når jeg tænker på uger synes jeg det lyder som længe, det her var 3 måneder og alligevel er det gået sindsygt hurtigt. Jeg føler allerede jeg har en lille hverdag her i L.A og det bliver underligt at skulle hjem igen. For ikke så længe siden havde vi en uge eller halvanden hvor der var gråt og overskyet dag ud og dag ind. Det mindede mig så meget om Danmark og jeg fik lidt ondt i maven fordi det gik op for mig at selv ikke engang Los Angeles er “all blue skies” hele tiden. Der er grå himmel over hele verden, nogen steder bare mindre end andre. Lige nu er det gråt og koldt hjemme i Danmark, men i det mindste er der julelys over det hele, familie der skal kysses og venner der skal ses – jeg glæder mig.

english: Today, there is less than a week until I return home to Denmark. People say time flies, the older I get the more I agree with that. When I think in terms of weeks, I feel that is a long time, this was three months and it has gone by with the blik of an eye. I already feel like I have my own little routine and my little everyday life here in L.A and suddenly I am going home again. Not too long ago we had a week or a week and a half where the sky was completely grey all the time. Day after day. It reminded me so much of Denmark and it made my tummy hurt because I realized that the sky can’t be blue all the time, not even in Los Angeles. There are grey skies all over the world, just some places less than others. Right now it is grey and cold in Denmark, but at least there are Christmas lights, family to be kissed and friends to be seen – I can’t wait.

Mit sidste efterårs makeup look inden vi for alvor går i jule-mood. Jeg er blevet helt vild med en kirsebærfarvet læbe. En kirsebærfarvet læbe er nemlig ikke bare en rød læbe. Det er en rød læbe med kolde, næsten blå undertoner. Jeg elsker den farve fordi den giver en rigtig fin kontrast til dette ellers meget varme, gyldne look. Den fine cherry læbefarve er en udspringer af L’oréal Paris’ infallible lip liner i farven “apocalypse” som jeg har brugt igen og igen på det sidste, jeg er vild med farven. Efter at have fyldt læben ud med lip lineren ligger jeg en nude læbefarve fra Marc Jacobs oven på. Det giver den helt perfekte cherry lip. På mine øjenlåg har jeg brugt Marc Jacobs’ primer og derefter lagt den samme bronzer som jeg har brugt under mine kindben fra Vita Liberata. Nogengange er det dejligt at have et “to go” look som ikke kræver for mange produkter. God fornøjelse!

english: My last fall makeup look before we go totally nuts in Christmas tutorials! I am absolutely crazy about a cherry lip these days. A cherry lip is not just a red lip. It’s a red with a very cold undertone and sometime almost blue base. I love that color because it gives a great contrast to this otherwise very warm look. The beautiful color is from the L’oréal Paris’ infallible lip liner in “apocalypse”. I have been using it over and over this past time! I always fill in my lips with the liner and then top of the look with a nude lipstick from Marc Jacobs, it gives the perfect shade. On my eyelids I used the Marc Jacobs primer and then just swept the lid with the same bronzer from Vita Liberata that I used to define my cheekbones. Sometimes it’s nice with a look that doesn’t require too many products! Enjoy!

Jeg forsøger altid at vente så længe jeg kan med at åbne for juleriet. Mest fordi jeg synes at December er sådan en særlig måned og man behøver ikke allerede begynde at jule i oktober ligesom de nærmest gør her i USA. Det har knap nok været halloween før at man også lige kan købe en nisse eller to med hjem fra Walmart. Det er ret vildt – men nu er det heldigvis slut november hvilket betyder at jeg gerne må begynde at jule lidt på bloggen. Jeg har været så heldig at få lov at vise jer mit yndlings look fra Selected’s “party looks” som lige nu kan fås i butikkerne og online. Det er ikke nogen hemmelig at en af mine yndlings farver er rød og når julen kommer er det jo intet mindre end et perfekt match. Dette suit vil jeg bruge til alverdens julefrokoster og måske endda til juleaften. Det er komfortabelt, stilet og jeg er vild med det’s afslappet fit. Det passer perfekt i min verden fordi jeg spiser rigtig meget i julen og er ikke så glad for tøj der strammer! Smart ikke? Shop looket oven for og gå ikke glip af deres mange andre muligheder til festen her. God fornøjelse!

english: I always try to wait as long as I can before I open up my holiday spirit. I mean, December is such a special month but I think it’s such a shame how it almost starts in October now. Especially in the states, halloween isn’t even over before you start seeing Christmas decorations at Walmart. It’s pretty crazy. But now, luckily it’s end november which means I get to open the cookie jar just a little and let out some of that holiday love. I have been so lucky that today, I get to show you my favorite party outfit from Selected’s “party looks”. It’s available online and in stores now. It’s no secret that red is one of my favorite colors and since it’s Christmas time I can only say that this suit is a perfect fit. I will wear this at the holiday parties and maybe even Christmas eve. It’s perfect because it’s comfortable but stylish and I love the relaxed fit. I eat a lot of food during Christmas and I don’t need a tight ensemble. Clever right? Shop the look via the links above but don’t miss the other holiday options here. Enjoy!

Vi bloggere er priviligeret, vi får lov at stikke vores fingre i alverdens cremer og tegne med alverdens lipliners. Men egentlig er det få produkter som får en permanent plads på vores hylder. Jeg elsker at prøve nye produkter men der er også nogen som jeg konsekvent vil blive ved med at købe igen og igen på trods af at der hele tiden dukker nye versioner op. De er bare de bedste for mig, længere er den ikke. Jeg vil ikke gennemgå alle disse produkter for jer, men lad os bare sige, der er en grund til at de er på disse billeder. God fornøjelse.

english: We bloggers are crazy privileged, we get to stick our fingers in every jar of cream and draw with every lipliner. But still it’s so few products that actually become a permanent part of our beauty shelf. I love trying new products but there are just some that I keep buying again and again even though new versions of it surface all the time. They are just the best ones for me. I won’t go through all the products, I just want to say that there is a reason that they made these photos. Enjoy.

I sommers, var jeg hjemme hos mine forældre i Silkeborg, hvor jeg så min lillebror Marcus rende rundt i den her t-shirt. Jeg blev straks irriteret, “han er slet ikke gammel nok til at have nice tøj endnu, han er kun 14?!”. Jeg pegede på ham, “trøje af nu, jeg skal have den med hjem” – god som han er gav han mig den og sagde jeg godt måtte låne den. Han er fanme så sød. Men helt ærlig, hvad sker der for at han er begyndt at have sejt tøj? Havde jeg sejt tøj da jeg var 14 år? Det mindes jeg ikke. Selvfølgelig da jeg var 14 gik jeg mest bare i ridetøj og boede halvt i en stald så måske det ikke kan sammenlignes. Men alligevel?! Det hjælper slet heller ikke på det at han ringede til mig for nogle uger siden for at spørge om jeg ville købe noget supreme med hjem til ham, altså helt ærlig? JEG synes supreme er nice, mig på 22 (okay 24). What is happening?! Heldigvis er vi nogenlunde samme størrelse (indtil videre). Always look on the bright side of life right? Jeg synes bare han var så sød da han var 3 år gammel og synes at alt i verden var mor og en lego klods. Nu har han seje t-shirts som jeg stjæler og jeg er på supreme jagt på hans vegne. Hvad sker der med tiden? Kys sendes til sej lillebror fra storesøster, måske du får den her t-shirt igen, ingen ved det.

english: This summer, when I went home to see my parents in Silkeborg, I saw my littlebrother running around in this t-shirt. I was instantly annoyed, “he is not old enough to have awesome clothes yet, he is 14?!”. I pointed at him, “shirt, off, now – I am taking it home!” – good as he is he gave it to me and said that I was welcome to borrow it. Seriously – why does he suddenly have cool clothes? Did I wear cool clothes when I was 14? I don’t recall. To be fair, when I was 14 all I wore was riders outfits because I basically lived in the stables so maybe it can’t be compared. But still?! It really doesn’t help at all either, that he called me a couple of weeks ago asking if I could buy him some supreme and take home. Like really? I, his sister of 22 (okay 24), think supreme is cool, what is happening? Luckily we are about the same size (so far). Always look on the bright side of life right? I just think that he was so cute when he was 3 and the coolest things in the world was mom and lego. Now he is wearing cool t-shirts, that I steal, and he asks me for supreme. Seriously, where does the time go? Kisses sent to my cool little brother from his big sister. I am not sure you will get this t-shirt back, time will tell.

MY TRUE MATCH

IN COLLABORATION WITH L’ORÉAL PARIS

Da jeg var barn, var jeg så lys at jeg nærmest følte jeg mig gennemsigtig. Havde man lige smidt lidt lysebrune birkes i et stort glas letmælk kunne man få en idé om hvordan jeg ca så ud. Jeg var meget bevidst om at jeg havde andre farver. Jeg følte ikke at det gjorde mig noget som sådan men jeg følte mig meget anderledes end de andre børn. Mange tror at det kun er hårfarven som gør at rødhåret føler sig anderledes men det er lige så meget vores (nogengange) meget lyse hud. Min første foundation var alt for mørk, min næste var alt for lys og mange gange brød jeg mig ikke om at have foundation på fordi det fuldstændig fjernede mine fregner. Mange foundations senere, er der endelig blevet lavet en foundation der passer lige til mig. Faktisk ikke kun til mig, men til mange! L’oréal Paris’ ikoniske True Match foundation er netop gået fra at repræsentere 10 nuancer til hele 21. Det gør mig lykkelig inden i når et brand virkelig gør et forsøg på at omfavne alle. De lyse og de mørke, de gule og de røde. Der er en farve til alle. Jeg er selv farve nummer 3 W golden beige. Når jeg kommer hjem fra sol og sommer i Californien bliver jeg nok lidt lysere igen. Udover at repræsentere mange nuancer er True Match også baseret på en måde unik formular som gør at den ikke fjerner det som gør din hud unik. Den dækker kun lige tilpas og smelter ind i din egen hudfarve. For mit vedkommende betyder det at jeg ikke længere behøver optegne mine fregner, de forsvinder nemlig slet ikke. Der er ikke en rigtig måde at være smuk på. Det er noget vi selv definerer. God fornøjelse!

english: When I was a kid, I felt almost see-through. Skimmed milk and I had a disturbing resemblance. If you poured a glass of milk and threw in some brown poppy seeds you would have an idea of what I looked like. I was very aware that I had different colors from the other kids. Not that I felt it was a bad thing, but I felt very different. Many think that us gingers only feel different because of our hair but the (sometimes) very light color of our skin also plays a big role. My first foundation was way too dark, my second one was way too light and often I didn’t like wearing foundation because my freckles would disappear underneath it. Many foundations later, there has finally been made one that fits me just right. And not only me, but many others too! L’oréal Paris’ iconic True Match foundation has just been released in 11 new shades. Going from representing 10 nuances to now, 21. It makes me so happy when a brands makes an effort to embrace everyone. The light, the dark, the yellow, the red. There is a color for everyone. I myself is in the shade 3 W golden beige. I will probably go a bit lighter though, when I return from the sunshine state. Besides representing various shades, True Match is also formulated in a way that makes it not “mask away” your imperfections but lets your own skin shine through. To me that means that I don’t have to mark up my freckles after applying. The foundation won’t take them away from me. There is no right way to be beautiful. We define what beauty is. Enjoy!
