DIGITAL DETOX

DIGITAL DETOX

To all my dearest readers. This is such a weird post to write, where do I begin – how do I put this into words? It’s strange in a way doing what I do, it’s so much fun and I feel a huge privilege getting to run my own business and write, travel and photograph for a living. It’s amazing. But being an influencer is also a different type of full time job in that sense that you actually never have a day of. It’s 7 days a week, it’s all hours of the day (or so it feels) and when you travel you are never really on vacation. It’s hard to explain because it look so good doesn’t it? And I am so blessed that I always have something to do and a new project to catch, and because I find it all so exciting I forget to take time of. Time of is important to everyone, everybody needs a break every once in a while and quite honestly I haven’t been taking mine. It’s been 3 years of non stop business, travel and being “online” – so I have to decided to take a little time off. I need to take some time to rejuvenate, collect new thoughts and quite frankly, sleep alittle. So I thought what better time to do it then when I first arrive in LA. I have to find a place to live, I wanna catch the last rummer rays on the beach and then I’ll return well rested and with new fresh ideas.

Taking a digital detox break is pretty scary I have to admit. Will I loose followers during my absence? Will my readers forget about me? Will my nose fall off and the sky fall down? The truth is, nobody knows. I can’t reassure myself that you’ll all be here when I return but I hope you will, and I know I’ll return as a better (and more rested) me who is ready to deliver new and exciting things for you to be inspired by. Which is the over all goal, isn’t it? Well now I must say adieu, at least for a while and I will be back in roughly two weeks, with a fresh new mind. Until then, enjoy babes!

My god! How beautiful are these pieces of luggage?! Oh the luxury line, Chartelet, from Delsey is just so yummy! And now they’ve made a new and improved line called the Chartelet Air, a lighter version of the otherwise pretty heavy suitcase series. Leather details, 10 year warranty, hard case exterior and a super power zipper that makes other zippers look like sissy’s. These photos were shot this weekend in my home town of Silkeborg in Jutland. My dear mommy is pretty handy with a camera and helped me take these photos on an early morning. One of my favorite places in Silkeborg is our old iron bridge that goes over the water, a perfect location to shoot these amazing pieces of luggage that are also almost “iron” colored.

This time around, I will be flying off to Los Angeles again to spend the fall there just like I did last year. It’s becoming almost a tradition and something I love to do. Taking me there is of course WOW air and I can’t wait to once again be on one of those big pink airplanes headed towards my favorite pink LA sky. I fly from Copenhagen airport to Iceland tomorrow – and although I normally always prioritize to fly directly I absolutely LOVE the stop in Iceland. Have you ever been to Iceland? IF not, go for the candy (among other things ofc) – BUT the airport is full of it! I always use my 2 hour layover to stock up on my two favorite kinds of Icelandic candy – Pristur and Djúpur! I can’t really explain what it is, but you must try it! They sell them in huge bags and I always look like I freak walking on to the next plane with my arms full of candy but I can’t help it? It’s so amazing! Make sure to pay close attention to my IG stories tomorrow when I fly with WOW air! Can’t wait to be on my way to American once again. Enjoy!

FROM BEDHEAD TO BUNHEAD

You will need:
Curl hold / GHD (shop here), Dry shampoo / Björn Axén (shop here), Curling iron / GHD (shop here)

I am wearing:
T-shirt / Gustav, Jewelry / Maria Black

Hello babes! It’s not long ago I had this hair do on my instagram story and I got a lot of messages about if I could show how I do it. Honestly it’s my go to look when it’s my 3rd or 4th day of not washing my hair. I’m a big dry shampoo girl! It’s not very difficult to do just takes a few times to get it right, it does for me too! So here is my from bedhead to bunhead look. Enjoy!

STEP 1
After a night of rumbling around on your pillow your hair will need a bit of a pick me up. I love to use a really good dry shampoo and preferably with a little bit of scent added to it. This one from Björn Axén is one of my faves. It’s light and doesn’t leave the hair powdery or white. It smells like grape fruit and the product looks cute (yes it matters)! I spray up and under my bangs, around the crown of my head and right in the front. You can shop the product here and follow the steps below!

STEP 2
Next step is adding some curl product. Because we’re gonna be using a curling iron to hide our bedhead(ness) – a curling product is in order. I use the curl hold from GHD simply because it’s compatible with the curling wand we will be using later in this tutorial. I also love it because it works great in dry hair. Spray it along your lengths and drag it out with your finger tips. Shop the GHD curl hold spray here.

STEP 3 
Get ready to curl! But don’t worry – only lightly. Remember this is our lazy day so only do it as you see fit. I like to use my wand to curl my hair backwards and away from my face. That makes it a lot easier to form the bun we will be making later. I am using the curl creative wand from GHD (it’s the effin best!) – shop it here.

STEP 4
The creation of the half bun. One of my favorite techniques to making a succesful messy bun is to divide the hair it into two. Using a small see through plastic band and twist the ponytail around the band. Fasten it with a bobby pin and voila!

 STEP 5
Time to assemble your messy bun! Divide the bottom part of your hair (dont worry about it being perfect, as you can see – mine is not even close to!). When you feel ready, take one part and cross it over to the opposite site and fasten it around the bun already on top of your head. Do this with the other side as well and your bun is done! Finish of with curling your hair in the front (only if you find this necessary) and voila! Enjoy babes!

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!

TOP 5 LIP BALMS | REVIEW

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!

Balance me / Stellar balm
(shop here)

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!

Sensai / Lip treatment
(shop here)

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!

Xellence / Lip conditioner
(shop here)

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.

L:A Bruket / Lip balm
(shop here)

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.
