A postcard from London filled with love. Traveling with these red suitcases made me feel like I was carrying around big hearts filled with happiness, which in my opinion suited a trip to London perfectly. London is in many ways a very romantic city. The little townhouses, the politeness of the crowd, the London accent – even the taxis are romantic in their appearance. I mean London is no Paris, but it’s romantic in a less obvious way which I really love. These photos were taken by my bestie Laura in the Mayfair area, it’s so pretty there – there are flowers everywhere and great restaurants on every corner. The Delsey Belmont series that I traveled with to London is a super handy, hardshell, lightweight suitcase series that I instantly loved! The sporty nature of it’s exterior is a nice twist to the otherwise classic brand but the suitcase still holds the same classy interior as always – I love the combo! The line is available to shop in above links. Enjoy friends!
It’s that season again my friends. Time to dig out those lip balms from your purses. It’s been such a wonderful summer in Copenhagen and I am sure we will have a beautiful (and hopefully wet) fall. Fall also means dry lips to most of us so I have taken on the mission of finding the absolute best lip balms out there and I have to tell you, the race is tight. We are so lucky, in this day and age, that there are ALOT of great products on the market. But then, which one is for you? Which consistency do you like and are you more of a longlaster or do you like to apply more often? I have chosen 5 great candidates in different price ranges and tested them out for you. Read below to find out more! Enjoy!
Let’s start off with a bit of a multi product. Balance me has this amazing “Stellar Balm” in their product line that can be used as a lip balm, a cuticle balm, to heal a mosquito bite or to even take care of a cold sore. The balm is very stiff and almost dry to start of with but becomes completely buttery when you start warming it up. I love using it as a lip balm when my lips have been exposed to cold weather or after a night on the town where your lips (and body) is heavily dehydrated. It’s also complete genius as your “winter balm” if you live in places where the weather gets below zero. The last plus I want to give this balm is that it’s more than affordable and you get a great product for the price!
On quite a different (financial) note, here is one of the heavy players. Sensai’s lip treatment is an absolutely amazing product. It can be used both as a everyday lip balm but also as an intense night treatment that goes on your lips but also around them. It’s quite an expensive product but it’s also a large lip product that will last you a long time. The consistency is silicone like, smooth and shiny and looks great during the day. The lip treatment is one of my all time favorites and is really a game changer within lip care. If you are a beauty nerd this product is definitely for you.
Petrolium jelly / Vaseline
Ahhh an oldie but goodie, or should I say goldie. In my world, nothing beats the good old fashioned petrolium jelly or vaseline as it’s also called. It’s sold practically everywhere, it’s cheap and often comes in all shapes and sizes. I believe it to be all healing. I apply it to my lips, to my hands, to my feet – even to my entire face if it’s having a REALLY dry day. It’s available at your local supermarket or your local pharmacy. You can never have too much vaseline in your bathroom cabinet. So basically this is just a survival tip and not so much a beauty tip. You can never have too much, I’m telling you!
The lovely brand Xellence has made a really good lip balm also that is made from Shea butter, almond oil and bees wax (among other things). It has no perfume and has a wonderful long lasting wear. It’s creamy but firm and I love the packaging it comes in. I have used this balm mostly at the gym because it doesn’t run anywhere and it doesn’t feel heavy – plus it lasts the entire time I’m there so I don’t have to reapply. It’s a good middle price and very good for the money.
Swedish L:A Bruket has made a wonderful stick lip balm in beautiful crisp packaging (as they always do their products). It’s packed with good ingredients such as almond and coconut oil. It’s easy to fit in any purse and has a good price point. This product is for you who likes a light layer of balm on your lips and who also likes to apply multiple times through out your day. It’s quite affordable and a has a lot of product in just one stick.

I have been traveling so much lately I feel like my head is spinning. Cannes, China, London – then home to my parents for a quick visit and so on and so on. It’s so much fun but also exhausting! I found it kind of funny that I was wearing an LA sweatshirt in London, it’s almost like I carry that city with me everywhere I go. Anyway, now it’s Copenhagen fashion week and then there will be more traveling in September. Talk soon babes!
