Vi er ankommet! Efter hvad der føles som måneders planlægning og massere sommerfugle i maven, er vi her endelig. Grækenland, du skuffer ikke! Vi ankom i går aftes til det vidunderlige Ekies Resort som ligger ved Thessaloniki. Ja det er korrekt det du læser, det lyder lidt som tzatziki – men det er ikke det samme. Vi er så heldige at vi har fået lov til at bo i en af de helt fantastiske pine suites. Afslappet moderne bungalow med privat pool – ja tak! Vores bønner er blevet hørt. Vi er i himlen! Følg endelig med hele ugen, der vil være updates hver dag fra dette fantastiske sted!

english: It’s real, we have arrived. After months of planning and tons of butterflies in our stomachs we are finally here. Greece, wow, you look beautiful. We arrived yesterday evening at the splendid Ekies Resort in Thessaloniki. Yes, you are right, it kinda sounds like tzatziki. But it’s not the same thing. We have been so lucky to get our very own private pine suite. Relaxed, modern bungalow style and private pool – yes please! Our prayers have been heard. We are in heaven! Stay tuned this entire week for updates on this beautiful place!

THAT’S HOW WE ROLL

Oh ja, lad os lige snakke om “the power of mascara” for det er i sandhed en ægte ting! Mascara er ingen joke, det kan virkelig make or break dit makeuplook. Og for rigtig mange er det en helt essentiel del af hverdagen. Som i kan se ser jeg meget anderledes ud uden mascara, mine vipper er fra naturens side hvide som sne og for at være helt ærlig føler jeg mig meget “nøgen” uden mascara. Mit “naked eye” er noget som jeg har lært at holde af over årene men mit favorit look er alligevel, nærmest alt med mascara. Derfor synes jeg også det er yderst naturligt for mig at åbne munden når et godt produkt rammer hylderne herhjemme. En piges mascara er meget personlig, vi finder ofte en vi kan lide (efter hvad der føles som flere års søgen) og så holder vi os til den. Vi ved hvordan den virker, vi ved hvor længe den holder og vi ved den er god, punktum. MEN der er en ny mascara på markedet, den nye Miss Baby Roll fra L’oréal Paris. Hvis du, som mig, elsker dine vipper lange og volumniøse så burde du prøve den. Den nye børste teknologi sikrer, at vipperne fæstnes i en perfekt kurve. Man siger endda man kan bruge den helt uden brug af vippecurler – ret fantastisk, jeg er fan! Jeg har lavet en lille mini tutorial nedenfor hvor jeg har brugt den uden at bukke vipper først! God fornøjelse!

english: Ah yes, the power of mascara, that is exactly what I am going to address today. Mascara is no joke, it can really make or break a look in my opinion. And to many people it is a very important part of life. As you can see I look totally different without mascara, my eyelashes are whiter than snow and to be honest I feel very naked without mascara. My “naked eye” is something that I have come to embrace over the years but my favorite eye look always has something to do with mascara. Therefore it is also natural for me to open my mouth when a good mascara is on the market and indeed my mouth is wide open this time! A girls mascara is very personal, often we find one we like (after what feels like years of searching) and then we stick with it. We know how it works, we know how it looks and we know it’s great and thats the end of that. BUT there is a new mascara in town, the new Miss Baby Roll from L’oréal Paris. If you, like me, like your lashes both long and voluminous – you should give it a go. The new brush technology ensures that the lashes are attached in a perfect curve so you won’t need your lash curler or any other tools to get perfect lashes. I am a big fan! You can see my try the mascara without having curled my lashes first down below – enjoy!

I dag da jeg sad og ville bestille en tid hos min læge gik det op for mig at sådan nogen jo også holder sommerferie. Han ville ihvertfald ikke være på kontoret i uge 27-28-29 og 30, “holy shit” tænkte jeg, “så er det ved at være tid til en lille sommerferie guide!” Jeg går selv på ferie på fredag og vil være væk på min første destination helt indtil d. 29/6 – derefter er jeg væk på endnu en destination fra d. 1/7 til d. 11/7. Jeg vil ikke afsløre hvor jeg skal hen endnu, der kommer til at være rigeligt om de to rejser på bloggen henover det næste stykke tid alligevel. Her er dog en lille forsmag på hvad jeg selv ville pakke hvis jeg skulle afsted til varmere lande på ferie. Sandaler, midi kjoler, SPF og et lækkert håndklæde, oh jeg kunne blive ved! God fornøjelse!

english: Today I was trying to order me a time to see my doctor when it dawned on me that those doctor people also go away during the summer. At least thats what I think he will do since he is closed all through weeks 27-28-29 and 30, “holy shit” I thought to myself, “it is very much time for a little summer vacation guide!” I myself will be off on my first holiday this friday and I won’t return until the 29th of june. Then I will be gone from the 1st of july until the 11th of july! I won’t tell you where I am going yet, you will know that soon enough. BUT here is what I would pack if I were going to a warmer climate. Sandals, midi dresses, SPF and nice towels, OH I could go on for days. Enjoy!

Hej Friyay! Det er endelig weekend og endda en lang en. Alle i Danmark har fri på mandag så København kommer til at have sådan en dejlig stilhed over sig. Folk sover længe, børn leger i gaderne og alting er bare, shhh. Jeg elsker det! Weekender som disse invitere altid til hoppe i de flade sko, noget jeg gør igen og igen hvis jeg kan komme afsted med det. Sneakers er mine venner, de er cute, komfortable og så er det altid det bedste valg for mig da jeg altid er til fods. Jeg er helt vild med de her blush farvet platform sneakers fra Superga, så fine! Perfekt sommer farve. Håber i får en fantastisk weekend!

english: Hello Friyay! It’s finally weekend, and a long one at that. Everybody in Denmark is off this monday so Copenhagen will have that nice silence laying over it. People are sleeping in, children playing in the streets and everything is just kinda quite. I love it. Weekends like this also invites to wearing flats, something I do over and over again. Sneakers is really my friend, they are cute, comfy and always the smart choice for me since I am always running around. I am crazy about these blush platforms from Superga, absolutely adorable! Perfect summer color. Hope you have an amazing weekend!

Hej I dejlige! Det smukke sommervejr fortjener en kommentar herfra i form af et makeup look. Mine ideer til makeup looks opstår oftest fordi jeg selv skifter min routine og derfor føler jeg har noget nyt at dele. Når det er sommer tilsættes hele min midterste ansigts region med fregner som løber fra det ene øre, hen over næsen og til det andet øre. Jeg er meget glad for mine fregner, i nogen perioder er de meget fremtræden og i andre, knap så fremtræden og derfor kan jeg godt lide at hjælpe dem lidt på vej. Så til dig der måske slet ikke får fregner, det her er også til dig! Alle steps vil blive skrevet på engelsk så alle kan følge med, god fornøjelse!

english: Hello lovelies! The wonderful sommer weather deserves a little shoutout from here in the form of a makeup look. My ideas for tutorials often appear when I change my daily makeup look and then I feel like I have something new to share with you guys. When the sun hits the sky I get a ton of freckles. Running from one ear, over the nose and to the other ear. The strength of the color in my freckles vary a lot from day to day and therefore I love to give them a helping hand sometimes. So if you don’t get any freckles at all and you want some, this is for you too! All the steps will be done in english below so everyone can follow, enjoy!

Step 1

In the summer I like to wear a very natural and almost transparent base. I mix one of my all time favorite foundations from Nimue with a great sunscreen from Kiehl’s. It’s a very light, dewy base that fits the hot days perfectly. If you only wish to wear sunscreen this one from Kiehl’s also has just a touch of color to it so you can use it to cover any uneven areas you might have. But I like to mix it, for me it gives the best result.

Foundation / Nimue (call for retailer +45 33 32 33 22), Sunscreen / Kiehl’s (shop here)

Step 2

Let the light meet the dark! Sounds so dramatic but it’s kinda true in this scenario. To lightly conceal my under eyes I am using the YSL beauty touche éclat and to enhance my features I use the Benefit’s hoola contour stick. I love how it’s like sun on the face but shaped as a stick! I start with concealer to map out the light on my face and then I go in with the stick where I feel I need it. You know your own face best so do it as you feel fits your features. Bronze away my queens!

Step 3

It’s it wonderful how you can buy glow? I am a huge fan of that concept – it’s pure genius. On my brow bone, the bridge of my nose and my chin I use L’oréal’s glam beige healthy glow powder and to create a killer combo I finish the skin of with a generous amount of pearly highlighter on my cheekbones. This one is from Becca.

Step 4

Eyes, eyes and more eyes! It makes all the difference, especially for me who has blonde eyebrows and lashes. For this look I went all brown, using two L’oréal favorites of mine. The volume million lashes in brown and the Infallible eyeliner (also in brown). The reason why I choose to go all loco with the coco is because freckles will always have a brown and/or golden undertone to them and I wanted to match them with the rest of the makeup. It also creates a much softer look in the summer sun.

Step 5

I know it’s actually possible to buy “freckle sticks” in stores but I don’t see why you can’t just use something you already have in your makeup bag. I like to use my eyebrow pencils to create the extra freckles. Not just because I already have them and therefore don’t need to buy yet another product but also because I know they will match my skin tone. Because they kinda already do, I mean the color sits above my eyes. I use two different colors, first I use the liquid eyebrow tint from & other stories and make tiny dots from one ear to the other. This tint is slightly darker than my own freckles and creates a nice base. Next I take my Anastasia brow wiz pencil in taupe and I make slightly bigger dots right next to the other dots I just made. If you don’t know where to place the freckles, find a photo of someone who has freckles and notice how randomly their freckles are placed. It’s important to create a mess – a natural mess. If the freckles are too perfect it will look fake. I also tap a few on the side of my nose between my eyes because I also have freckles on my eyelids and I want them all to melt together into a non perfect but perfect mess. You know what I mean?

Step 6

Dab, dab, dab! For this look I like to gently dab over my new freckles when I am done drawing them. This makes them a little matte, instantly appearing more natural. Don’t over due this step though or you might just have to draw on all of the freckles again. Carefull roll the beauty blender over your nose and press on the cheeks – it helps to smile while you do it!

Step 7

Ahh the lips, perhaps the most important! It’s kinda like putting a perfect bow on a perfect present! I choose a orangy nude’ish color for this look. I love these liquid lip cremes from Marc Jacobs beauty – such a nice finish. I am crazy about this color! I think it would be lovely on all girls, regardless of skin or hair color!

Step 8

SMILE! You look wonderful!
Thank you for tuning in.
