Traveling far away can be scary, I always have a ton of things I google before going somewhere new! Like how clean is the drinking water, will I feel safe in the streets or will I need an adapter for my electronics? SO therefore I made a little guide to all of you traveling to China, with some of my observations that I made while I was in Beijing. Enjoy! 

1. You dont need an adapter – you’re welcome.

2. Download the app “express VPN” from home and remember to create an account while still in europe / US otherwise it doesn’t work. VPN is important for those who wants facebook, instagram and google to work on their phones. Google maps is a very helpful app to have at hand.

3. You CAN drink the water if it’s been boiled but it’s also really cheap to drink water from bottles. Actually beverages in general is pretty cheap!

4. Not many people speak english in China, so for your own sake download the translater app. It’s clever because you just write what you want on the screen and it comes out in Chinese and you can show them. They’re very helpful when they understand you.

5. If you wanna beat jetlag, sleep on the whole flight there. You will land in the morning and have the whole day ahead of you so if you dont sleep you’ll be tired beyond belief for what feels like days!

6. 3likeHome works in China! HALLEJUA! And well even!

7. Public transportation works REALLY well! The subway of Beijing is the cleanest I’ve ever seen, the long distance trains too and everything leaves and arrives on time. Works perfectly! Also it feels very safe, there is security everywhere and people are very calm and collected. I never felt unsafe, not even once.

8. Always remember that there is a Chinese price and a tourist price when you go to markets. Don’t be afraid to bargain, they expect it from you!

9. Remember to bring pollution friendly skincare products – I don’t care if you’re a guy or a girl, the smog level in the big cities is even worse than you can imagine and your skin will suffer!

10. Please be prepared that photos will be taken. I have never been photographed as much as in China – and I have a feeling it’s not just because I am a ginger. It seemed that if you’re not Chinese, you’re interesting.

First pip from my trip to China – spring photos from the heavenly peace square in Beijing. We went there early, saw the elder practice Tai Chi, sing in choirs and do their morning gymnastics. Within the park there was the most amazing park of roses, it was filled with people and everybody was taking pictures of the beautiful flowers. I didn’t know about this part of the park so I felt pretty silly walking around in a dress covered in roses. The Chinese apparently thought it was nothing short of pure awesomeness, they took so many photos of me and I was asked to hold babies and dogs for photos in front of the bushes. People stood next to me for photos and some also just came up and stuck a camera in my face, click and then they went away again. Apparently it’d a good idea to check for flowers parks before rocking a full flower look. Who could have known?

You guys know that switching up my suitcase game is one of my favorite things when traveling! When I travelled to Cannes I was so lucky to travel with the new “Montrouge” series from beautiful Delsey. Designed to celebrate women, this luggage line features both trollies, carry on bags and beauty bags in feminine golden design with one of the best zippers on the market! Now this might be a tad nerdy, but for someone who travels a lot, one of my biggest fears is my suitcase popping open by the zipper. My suitcase is always overly full, pushed to the limit and I would hate for it to be thrown around at the airport and eventually pop open! OH all that clothes everywhere. What a travesty. This luggage is designed with a special double secured zipper called Securitech 2 Zipp. It’s 41 stronger than a normal zipper. I felt very calm traveling with this line and didn’t think about the horrible popping, not even once. My personal favorite was the check in luggage (find it here), even though it didn’t seem very big to me at first it is HUGE on the inside and I could fit all my stuff in there, no problem. It’s also super light and I love the feature of the 4 wheels – just makes it all so much easier. Shop the whole series above or shop the cabin trolly here and the big trolly here.

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!

I am a pretty versatile girl. I can do the hoodie thing, the grunge thing, I can even do the “babe” thing but I am also exceptionally good at the “girl with the pearl earrings” thing. You know what kinda girl I’m talking about – the good girl. It’s a role I am very familiar with because I grew up looking up to my mother and my grandmother who are both very posh, put together ladies with great style (and pearl earrings). It’s been very fun for me to witness the different reactions I get with that I wear. If I wear streetwear, you know a hoodie, a little supreme and so on – people my own age look at me and nods with approval, asks me where my stuff is from or compliments my sneakers. People my parents age (and in this case especially women) will look at me with a bit of a disapproving and observant eye. If I wear something like this outfit, a good girl outfit, the reaction is quite different. A pretty dress, good classic accessories and of course the pearl earrings. Now when I wear something like this, people my own age don’t really pay much attention to me but the elder group of the population has nothing but approving nods and proud smiles to send in my direction. “Ah yet another succesful young adult.” It’s funny how certain generations just assume you are less succesful, less driven or less smart if you wear something they don’t like or approve of. I love wearing a dress like this and I love feeling girly and flowy – but I also love to wear baggy pants, sneakers and hoodies and quite honestly it makes me want to wear streetwear even more just because I want to show that what you wear has nothing to do with how succesful of an adult you are. Everybody at all ages should just relax with the judgement. We shouldn’t judge people on the hoodie or the dress that they wear! Everything is love, enjoy friends!
