Beauty bag / Delsey (shop here)

To pack the perfect beauty bag can be difficult. There is NEVER enough room, the beauty bags are never tall enough for full size products and to be honest, it’s hard to find a pretty one. It’s often that they smothered in all kinds of weird print, or very strong colors and they never match the luggage which for someone with OCD (like me) can be almost devastating. In collaboration with my favorite luggage brand, Delsey, I will today share with you how I pack my beauty bag and also what I put in it. The first photo shows all that I can fit in my beauty bag, it’s everything from sheet masks to full size hair and face products. I am not big on compromising when it comes to the products I bring traveling. I don’t wanna miss anything and I don’t like buying all kinds of little plastic travel sizes. There is enough plastic in the world as it is. When I travel I need everything from my favorite shampoo to my La Mer micellar water and luckily this beauty bag from Delsey allows me to bring it all. It also embraces perfumes, face mists, hair oils and eye masks. Secured with a strong zipper and wipeable material it’s a perfect travel buddy. Shop both products and bag via links above! Enjoy friends!

Yves Saint Laurent Beauty
Vinyl Lip Stain
401, 403, 406, 409, 411

When you get a new product that is swatchable, do you swatch too? I love to do swatches of different products. Besides it being great fun, it’s also very helpful when finding colors that suit your skintone. My newest lip obsession are these vinyl lip stains from YSL beauty. Their color range is spectacular and YSL does (once again) not disappoint with the brightness and variety. Shock pink, classic red or playful orange – the color palette is yours to have fun with. I am completely smitten with lip stains, it’s one of my favorite items to bring with me everywhere. Once you’ve found “your color” it’s such an irreplaceable product. Use it as a bold lip or a soft lip, use it as your blush, use it on your eyelids – suddenly a new world opens when multi products are born. The Vinyl lip stain is not your usual lip stain though, although it works as a great multi product it’s best feature is actually it’s ability to create a full vinyl lip look – and it does it well. Without smudging, running or being hard to apply this product delivers a second to non vinyl look with shine beyond comparison. Above I have showcased my favorites of the many many colors YSL offers. Enjoy babes!

Sunscreen SPF40 / Jurlique (shop here), Tanning oil / Bali body (shop here), After sun lotion / Coola (shop here), Hydrating serum / La Mer (shop here), Hairclip / Pico (shop here)

Location: Bali, Indonesia
Photos taken with Canon 5D mark II

Jeg elsker en god pool, men jeg elsker også en god tan og nogengange når man forsøger at få en god tan så skal man bruge lidt hjælp fra nogle gode produkter. Lad os starte med lidt beskyttelse. Jurlique har lavet en lækker solcreme med SPF40 som både er til krop og ansigt. Den dufter skønt og er nem at påføre, lad den tørre og påfør så din nye bedste ven. Din nye bedste ven i denne situation er Bali body’s ananas tanning olie. Jeg påføre den oven på den tørre solcreme og så ligger jeg mig til at sole. Olien er meget effektiv og er derfor ikke noget man skal bruge alene. Prøv eventuelt med lidt (f.eks. på armen først) og se om du kan tåle dens effekt. Efter tanning, svømning og lidt mere tanning, tager jeg et bad og ender min tanning session med aftersun lotion fra Coola. Efter en tanning session trænger mit ansigt til det bedste af det bedste. Solen er hård mod huden, den tørre den ud og gør skade så det bedste man kan gøre for den er at give den et stort glas vand. Og det er lige præcis hvad man gør ved at give den et lag af La Mer’s hydrating serum. Et stort glas La Mer, ja tak! God fornøjelse i solen venner!

english: I love a good pool, but I also adore a good tan and sometimes when in need of a good tan you need some good products to help you get there. Lets start with the SPF. Jurlique has made a great SPF40 for the face and body, it smells great and it’s easy to apply. Let it dry and absorb into your skin and then you add magic. The magic in this equation is the Bali body pineapple tanning oil. I apply it on top of the SPF and then I lay to tan. I wouldn’t recommend using the oil without SPF first, it’s very effective and I wouldn’t want you to burn. I recommend that you try it out on a small area on your body first to see if this product suits your skin. After tanning, pooling, tanning again – I take a shower and I end my tanning session with the aftersun lotion by Coola. For my face I am giving it the absolute best on the market, the hydrating serum from La Mer. The sun is hard on the skin, it dries it out, it damages it so SPF is essential but so is giving it a big glass of water afterwards. That’s exactly what this amazing serum is, one big glass of water. Enjoy my sunny friends!

At passe på sig selv. Hvad betyder det? Hvad vil det egentlig sige? Selvfølgelig er det meget individuelt hvad der gør at man føler sig afslappet, veltilpas eller sund. Og hvad vil det sige at være sund? Sundhed er også en meget individuel ting tror jeg, og både mental og fysisk sundhed skal jo gerne gå hånd i hånd før man er “rigtig” sund, ikke? eller hvad? Det er svært at definere sundhed, ligesom det også er svært at sætte nogle definitive retningslinjer for det “at være sund”. Det eneste man kan gøre er jo egentlig at mærke efter, og måske lytte til nogen som man selv synes er “sunde”. Om man så lytter gennem magasin artikler, bøger, blogs eller tv udsendelser er jo så op til en selv. Jeg har ihvertfald valgt at skrive et lille indlæg om hvordan jeg holder mig “sund”. Mental sundhed for mig er gode film, musik, at tage sjove billeder af mine venner og dem jeg elsker og så er jeg helt tosset med at skrive. Jeg har skrevet tonsvis af sider i hånden igennem tiden, det giver mig ro i hovedet – nogengange hjælper det rigtig meget at “få det ud”. Hvad end “det” så er. Beauty og fysisk velvære er også en stor del af hvad får mig til at føle mig sund. Og her mener jeg beauty både udefra men bestemt også indefra. Jeg tager mange kosttilskud og gør en dyd ud af at sammensætte en kombination som er helt rigtig for mig. Jeg elsker at spise gode sunde snacks samt drikke plante baseret mælk. Jeg er på ingen måde fanatisk omkring min indtagelse af mad men der er små ting som jeg har skåret fra eller erstattet med det sundeste alternativ overhovedet. På den måde kan jeg godt “slacke” andre steder. Udenpågående beauty (jeg er ikke sikker på det er et ord, men det er det nu). Her elsker at jeg forkæle mig selv med ansigtsrulle rutiner, lækre masker, top hudpleje, bodyscrubs og forskellige olier. Velvære er selvfølgelig også at rejse, men det er en helt anden snak – den kan vi tage en anden dag. Til næste gang!

english: To take care of yourself. What does that mean? What does it actually mean? Of course it’s a very individual thing I think. Both mental and physical health kinda has to go hand in hand for there to be an overall feeling of “health” right? Or? It’s difficult to define health, just like it’s also difficult to ensemble some definite guidelines of what it is “to be healthy”. The only thing you can really do is feel your body and mind and maybe listen to people around you, who you think are “healthy”. Weather that listening is through articles, blogs, books or tv shows – well that’s up to you. With this in mind, I wanted to write a little post about how I stay healthy. Mental health for me is good movies, music, to take photos of my loved ones and writing. I have written countless pages by hand, it calms me – sometimes it helps just to get it out you know? Whatever “it” is. Beauty and physical comfort is also a big part of what makes me feel “healthy”. And of course here applies beauty on both the outside and the inside greatly. I take a lot of vitamins and it’s very important to me to combine them in a way that’s just right for me. I love eating good, healthy snacks and drink plant based “milk”. I am in no way a fanatic regarding my food but I have chosen to cut certain things out of my diet and replace them with the healthier option so that I can “slack” other places. Beauty that goes on the outside is another thing, I love my facerollers, masks, quality skincare, bodyscrubs and various oils. Mental health is of course also to travel, but that’s a whole other talk that we can do another day. So long!

NEW HAIR WHO DIS

MADE IN COLLABORATION WITH SACO HAIR COPENHAGEN
Read more about Saco hair Copenhagen here 

Oh hvor havde jeg set frem til dette længe! Jeg skulle faktisk have gjort det inden jul men længe leve dovenskaben. Jeg trængte desperat til at blive klippet. Mit pandehår var længere end min nabo’s bryster og egentlig så jeg lettere pjusket ud. Jeg får ret tit spørgsmål om mit hår, særligt på instagram så jeg tænkte jeg ville lave et lille post hvor jeg fortæller om hvor jeg bliver klippet, hvad der bliver gjort osv. Jeg bliver klippet af fantastiske Betty Christoffersen. Betty er medstifter af Saco Hair som ligger i Fiolstrædet og hun er den eneste jeg tør lade røre mit hår. I hvertfald med en saks i hånden (lidt hovedbunds nus siger jeg sjældent nej til). Udover pandehår klippede Betty spidser og gav mit meget trætte (over sol eksponeret LA hår) en gloss. En gloss er ikke noget farligt blot et ekstra plejende og beskyttende lag som giver håret lidt ekstra glans og glød. Man kan også vælge at komme lidt farve i hvis man vil prøve det – dog bliver både gloss og farve skyllet ud efter lidt tid. Jeg har krøller fra naturens side men disse på billedet er (desværre) lavet af Betty og blev vildt smukke! Jeg har sat et link ind øverst hvis nogen selv vil ind og blive klippet hos SACO så kan i booke tid igennem der. God fornøjelse!

english: Oh my had I been looking forward to this for a looong time! I should have done this before Christmas but CHEERS to laziness. I desperately needed a haircut. My bangs were longer than my neighbors breasts and to be honest I looked rather shagged (and not in a good way). I quite often get questions about my hair, especially on instagram so I thought I would do a little post explaining where I get it cut, what I get done and so on. My hair is cut by the amazing Betty Christoffersen. Betty is the co-founder of Saco hair located in Fiolstrædet in central Copenhagen. She is the only one I let touch my hair, with a scissor in her hand that is (I rarely pass on hair cuddles). Besides cutting my bangs, Betty also fixed my split ends and gave me a gloss. Betty recommended that we did a gloss because my overly sun exposed LA hair was very dull and needed a pick me up. A gloss is nothing permanent just a layer of care, shine and life to the hair. It’s also possible to add a little bit of color but it’s all washed out after a while. I have natural curls but these were made by Betty! Wish they were mine, I always love how she styles my hair. I have put in a link under the photo to SACO if you wanna check it out yourself. Enjoy!

Shop the 3 key products from this look
Hairspray (shop here), Mousse (shop here), Dry shampoo (shop here)

Som i måske har set på min instastory i forbindelse med Københavns modeuge var jeg så heldig at være backstage sammen med Sebastian Professional under Designers Remix showet. Her var der fokus på moderne 80’er hår med lækker sideskildning og uperfekte spidser. Looket blev skabt med en blanding af forskellige typer krøller for et mere “permanentet” look som man ofte havde i 80’erne. Key produkterne i looket bestod af hairspray, en god bouncy mousse og massere af dry shampoo. Dry shampoo er blandt andet også det som giver de “tørre spidser” som er en stor del af looket. Jeg var så heldig at få lov til at stille Sebastian Professional’s global artist, Nina Larsen, et par spørgsmål om looket og hende selv – dem kan i læse nedenfor på engelsk. Så kan alle være med. Rigtig god fornøjelse.

english: As you may have noticed on my instastory, I was so lucky, that during Copenhagen Fashionweek, I got to be backstage at the Designers Remix show with Sebastian Professional. Here, the 80’s had arrived. Chic midtparts and imperfect ends were key to this modern 80’s take on a curly hairstyle. The hair had different types of curls to resemble the look of a perm from the 80’s. Key products to create this look included hairspray, a bouncy mousse and dry shampoo. The dry shampoo, especially, is what creates the dryness and illusion of the “split ends” which is a big part of the look. I was so lucky that I got to ask Sebastian Professionals global artist, Nina Larsen, some questions about the look and herself. Read below. Enjoy!

3 QUESTIONS TO NINA LARSEN, KEY ARTIST, SEBASTIAN PROF.

How do you, as the key stylist, come up with new looks all the time?

As key stylist it’s very important to keep track of the new tendencies. You are either lucky to be able to create and develop looks yourself or you are not. Creativity is a gift. For me to be creative, it’s important for me to have the space and time to reflect. I get this during my many travels where I take the time to reflect but also to gather new inspiration. It’s also important for me to be surrounded by creative minds and create together.

What is your best hair trick?
A bun can be hard to style because we want it to look natural and organic. What’s important is the product you use during your blowdry. Add a bit of the Sebastian Texture Maker into damp hair and blow-dry with your head down to create that “fluff” in the hair. The Texture Maker creates a texture that makes the hair much easier to style. If you want a high bun, put your head between your legs and make a high ponytail. Use your hands. Then you twist the ponytail around it’s center. A good tip is to make it tighter than you want it at first, that way you know it’s secure. When the bun is finished you are ready to style it in the front and loosen it in the back. Finish your look with Sebastians Drynamic dryshampoo for that messy finish.

What are you personal favorite products from Sebastian Professional? 

My favorites right now are Sebastian Dark Oil and Sharper Fierce. Dark Oil smells amazing and can be used before blow dry but also in dry hair to add some shine. Dark Oil gives a nice soft feel to the hair while it nurtures and add’s shine. The Sebastian Sharper Fierce is a hairspray with strong hold. I love that it’s so dry in it’s consistency yet the hair still feels light.

Pyjamas shirt / Yolke (shop here)

Hej alle! Så er jeg tilbage med endnu et tutorial – det virker til i er glade for dem så jeg har besluttet mig for at være bedre til at få dem lavet! I dag vil jeg vise jer hvordan jeg laver min go to “low messy bun”. Det bliver rigtig hurtigt en meget fingernem frisure når man har prøvet det et par gange. Jeg bruger denne frisure både mandag morgen og til fest. Jeg har lavet en step by step guide nedenfor. God fornøjelse!

english: Hey everybody! I am back with yet another tutorial – it seems that you guys like theses so I have decided to do more of them. Today I wanna show you how I do my go to low messy bun. It quickly becomes a very easy hairdo once you have done it a couple of times. I wear my hair like this on mondays and to parties. It’s super versatile. I have made a step by step guide down below. Enjoy!

Step 1
Prepping the hair

Products used:
Hydrating styling creme / Moroccan oil (shop here), Grip spray / Lernberger Stafsing (shop here)

Prepping the hair is one of the most important steps when doing a hairdo. I always used to underestimate this step because “how important can it be?” – well as it turns out, quite. So for this look first what I do is I smooth the ends of my hair. I use Moroccan oil’s hydrating styling creme and just run my fingers over my hair. Second I use a grip spray also known as a dry shampoo. I LOVE using dry shampoo because it kinda gives you the option of molding your hair into place without the stiffness of hairspray. I lift the crown of my hair and spray it into the routs. Remember to let the product sit for a while before you continue. That way it’s easier to work with.

 
Step 2
Parting the hair

Products used:
See through hair ties / Asos (shop here)

Now this step you might not find totally necessary once you have the next step completely down but it’s good for beginners. Part your hair from just over your ears and up. I like to use these almost invisible hair ties, they are easy to use and really keeps the pony in place. If you havn’t tried them yet, please do, they will change your life.

Step 2
Roll and tug

Products used:
Hairpins

Now this part is a bit tricky to explain but I am going to give it a go anyway. So the key to the low bun is actually to create “a bun”. So what I like to do is start at the ends of my hair and using two hands, simply roll up. When you have a shape you like place two hairpins inside the roll, one on each side to hold it in place. You might need more than two, so just place them within the roll where you see fit. As long as it’s secure you are good to go on to the next step.

Step 3
Secure with hairclip
Hairclip / Pico (shop here)

Securing your chosen hairclip just over the top of the bun is how I like to do it. I like these large slender hairclips from Pico, they are easy to use and you can fit a lot of hair in them. Finish the look by pulling out random strands of hair and you are done. Don’t worry about it being too perfect. It’s not supposed to be.

Thank you for tuning in

Det nærmest obligatoriske, klassiske og evigt smukke julelook. Jeg bliver aldrig træt af at lave det her look. Det gør mig både glad at lave men også at have på. Det er det makeup look jeg føler mig smukkest i og jeg nyder at kysse alle dem jeg elsker og efterlade store, røde kyssemunde på dem. Jeg har lavet en step by step guide herunder på engelsk, til dig der ønsker at rocke en ægte klassiker her i julen. Den er lidt lang men man siger jo også at julen vare længe. God fornøjelse!

english: Here is the almost mandatory, classic and forever beautiful Christmas look. I never get tired of doing this look. It makes me happy both to do and to wear. It’s probably the look I feel the most beautiful wearing and I love kissing my loved ones and leaving big, red kissing lips all over them. I have made a step by step guide down below for those who wish to rock a true classic this Christmas. It’s a bit long but so is Christmas, or so i’ve heard. Enjoy!

STEP 1
SKIN

Liquid highlighter / Marc Jacobs beauty (shop here), Primer / Yves Saint Laurent (shop here), Makeup sponge / Yves Saint Laurent (shop here), True Match foundation / L’oréal Paris (shop here), Concealer / Yves Saint Laurent (shop here)

Step 1 is definitely not to be messed with or slack on! The skin is the canvas that holds the look, any makeup look! I start with a glowing base by mixing Marc Jacobs’ dewy drops with the excellent YSL primer. When massaged into the skin, I apply my True Match foundation in shade 1.5 N. Perfect for my fair complexion. Then I finish with concealer under my eyes, on the bridge of my nose and in my cupids bow.

STEP 2
BLUSH AND HIGHLIGHT
Highlighter / NYX (shop here), Blush stick / Sephora (shop here)

Step 2 is here to celebrate that glow and those rosy apple cheeks. For this look I use a very crisp highlighter in a nearly white shade. It’s almost pearly on the skin and therefore goes perfectly with the frosty weather outside. For a little warmth in the face, I use a blush stick from Sephora. It’s great to keep in your purse and can be used on both cheeks and lips!

STEP 3
EYES
Chubby stick / Clinique (shop here), Gel liner / L’oréal Paris (shop here), Liquid liner / Wet n’ Wild, Mascara / L’oréal Paris (shop here)

Step 3 is focused on the eyes. The eyes is just as much a key feature for this looks as the lips are. This winged liner and golden lid, signals serious Hollywood vibes. I start by using a beautiful gold toned chubby stick from Clinique. On top of that I use L’oréal Paris’ genius gel liner in the blackest of black. I like to draw my lines using a gel liner before I apply my liquid liner. It gives a nice base for the liquid liner to glide on top of. To finish the look I use my absolute favorite mascara, the volume million lashes in fatale! It’s the best and perfectly dramatic for this festive look.

STEP 4
LIPS
Lipliner / NYX (shop here), Lipstick / Guerlain (shop here)

Step 4 is important! It’s our red base for the lips. I always start with lipliner. I like this one from NYX. It’s creamy and comes in a lovely deep red. It’s a bit darker than the lipstick which gives a nice effect to the look. The lipstick is from the french luxury brand, Guerlain and is nothing short of amazing. The packaging is very beautiful and the color is intense. Stays on for hours. Apply it as you would any other lipstick, just be sure to “fill out” the lines from the lip liner.

STEP 5
POWDER & GLOSS
Transluscent powder / L’oréal Paris (shop here), Lip paint / L’oréal Paris (shop here)

Step 5 is the most crucial step for this look. The setting and glossing of the Christmas lips. After you have applied a generous amount of lipstick you take your transluscent powder and shower your lips. It’s totally okay that it looks like you were caught eating powdered donuts. Let it sit for a while. Really let the powder sink into the lipstick. I use the true match powder from L’oréal Paris. It’s velvet soft and easy to work with which makes it perfect for this task. Dust off your lips using a large, soft powder brush. You will now have totally matte lips and they will be completely smudge proof. Now it’s time for the finishing touch, the lip paint. Apply a generous amount on top of your matte lips and smack your lips together along the way so you get the look you want!

Now all that’s left is to smile and have a
MERRY CHRISTMAS!

L’ORÉAL PARIS X BALMAIN

IN COLLABORATION WITH L’ORÉAL PARIS

L’oréal Paris x Balmain
GLAMAZONE (shop here), LIBERATION (shop here), REBELLION (shop here)

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.

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!
