Sustainable packaging in the beauty industry is as much about innovation as it is about choice. The future is here, the resources are here and all we are waiting for is the brands that will pave the way to sustainable packaging. There are many different aspects to the sustainable packaging design, and all steps made toward achieving a lesser footprint on the environment are steps taken in the right direction. Today we will take a look at Lush and their initiative to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. And yes, they do come in this order, it’s not only because it sounds…

Sunscreen is an essential part of keeping one’s skin health, but can just as easily be damaging our environment. The Heareticus Environmental Lab (HEL) has designed a “Protect Land and Sea Certification” program for companies to run their products through and get the certified as environmentally friendly. The program is focusing on a list of harmful ingredients that are causing natural pollution and harming the wildlife. Unfortunately, the list of chemicals is present in many of our favourite sun care products, whiteout any disclaimer of the impact they can have on the environment. This is where the consumer can take…

Vegan & Cruelty-Free Hair Care Not so long ago, I decided to try and exclude the beauty products I have that are tested on animals and replace them with cruelty-free or vegan products. I was pretty surprised to find that a lot of the brands I was using are actually testing on animals. Quite disappointing. I am no expert on animal testing in the beauty industry or any industry for that matter, but what PETA is showing does not seem okay at all, and I am trying my best to not support brands who would do that. Fortunately for the…

Copenhagen is a really attractive city, so full of life, energy and no less character. It’s been roughly 4 weeks since we moved here, and all I could think of is why didn’t we do this sooner? The feeling of euphoria is still very strong, so I almost can’t trust my current opinions. But one thing I know for sure…Being here feels right. I feel like I belong, and this is definitely where I should be right here and right now. Past year was filled with so many question marks, concerns and a general feeling of being lost. Moving here…

Hey guys, hope you are well! Today we are back on the topic of organic skin care with a guest star – Evolve Beauty. Earlier on the blog, I have mentioned the Miracle Oil from Evolve Beauty, which has been a part of my routine for months now and I still love it. You can read my review and experience with it HERE. Today I wanted to share two new products from the same brand that I enjoy using a lot. Given my skin history and frustrations, I would never share a product I don’t think is good, give a…

Since the beginning of 2018, I was really craving a change, and that change came in the shape of filling a very anticipated address form. 💌  I visited Copenhagen few times this year, and it stole my heart.🏙I fell involve with Denmark all over again☙ Aalborg is a great town and it will always have a very special place in my heart, but it was time to say goodbye 🌊 💭 I am very grateful I was able to make this change in my life together with my Andreas, and am so excited to explore this completely different side of Denmark 🌉 The actual moving was seamless…

I don’t think there is a single Instagram user who hasn’t come across the oh-so-famous, blue bears. Ever since the Kardashians endorsed SugarBear Hair, IT BLEW UP. All the marketing that is in this product can be a little off-putting to some, but I don’t think this should be a reason for you not to try them. It can feel a bit insincere or deceptive to the consumer, but from a marketing point of view, it’s impressive. I have been amazed by how well these vitamins have been branded, the extreme use of influencers, the colouring, the wording on the…

chanti.dk Hey guys, hope you are well! Just wanted to quickly share few more photos, specifications and links to the ring from my last Instagram post. The ring is from CHANTI and it’s made in 8 karat white gold with a heart shaped synthetic, blue sapphire stone. The sapphire is genuine, “synthetic” means it’s made under artificial conditions, but still shares the same compounds like the one occurring in nature. I am so in love with this ring, It’s absolutely gorgeous, so feminine and delicate. Here is a LINK to the ring, which is currently discounted to 1.350 DKK  , so if you…

For the sake of honesty, I will have to start by admitting that I have bought followers in the past, used commenting bots and all other sorts of “growth hacks”. Back when Instagram first changed the feed from chronological to “whatever we think you wanna see” and the apocalypse started, my following went down. Not only that I wasn’t getting new followers anymore, I was losing approximately 10-15 a week. My likes and engagement dropped dramatically and just stayed there since. So, during the apocalypse, I tried buying followers, in total I bought around 200. (I say around because you…

KOREAN BEAUTY BY KLAIRS For years I have been inspired and astonished by the South Korean beauty industry, or so-called K-Beauty. When it comes to innovation, technology and effectiveness, Korean beauty brands are world leaders. They are said to be 12-14 years ahead of American cosmetic technology! If you are curious and want to know more about Korean beauty, you can check out this nice article, or just try google it, there is plenty of information about it :). Today I want to share with you the amazing brand Klairs which is known to work with the most natural, necessary and effective ingredients.…

Today I want to talk about a new product that I have included into my skincare routine, that is a complete game changer for me. It’s the Miracle Facial Oil from Evolve Organic Beauty. The product is 100% organic and includes in its majority Rosehip Oil, as well as Argan and Nigella oils. Like you guys know I have struggled (still struggling) with some breakouts, which even when healing can leave dark spots, pigmentations and scars. On top of that most of the products that help with breakouts tend to dry out my skin when used for a longer period. For the…

Hey guys, hope you are well :).  I will be adding a new section to the blog dedicated to Denmark and life in Denmark as a foreigner :). The topics will be touching upon matters like work, making friends, language, traditions, beauty & fashion and all in between. All just from my perspective and my experience. The first topic might seem a little less important, but I get many questions about it, and I think it’s a good thing to consider when moving to Denmark. prices of beauty procedures in Denmark So how expensive are beauty procedures and products in…

Hey guys, I hope you are well! I have decided to make an updated skincare routine and introduce you to some new products I have been using and absolutely loving.  You know skin care is very important to me, and I have had my fair amount of struggles with breakouts and pimples. But what is also very important to me is sharing. When I find a product that has helped me, I immediately want to share, as I know first hand how frustrating it is when you try to improve your skin and nothing is working. I am not saying that these…

The more jewels and sparkle the better! I know, I am such a stereotype. But how can a girl not love a little glamour? I love pretty things. It’s not so much about having them, just looking at them, enjoying them. I am not one of those people who obsess over possessions, no, but I like admiring beauty in every shape and form. And jewellery, oh my…  can’t say no to that. Today I am sharing this beautiful piece from Chanti. A 9 karat gold with a white zircon gem, perfect eye candy for those who like a little…

Hey guys, hope you are well :). I woke up early today as I was so excited to finally have a sunny day in Aalborg. The weather has been getting darker and colder, and I am already missing the warm and sunny Fall days. I took advantage of the beautiful weather and wore those super cute, loose pants from Meccant. I am pretty sure this was my last chance to wear them outside, this year. This is one of my favourite pair of pants as they can both be styled for an evening look with high heels, or a casual look…

This leo trend came out of nowhere for me. Didn’t see it coming, but I am definitely guilty of loving it. Can’t believe that just a few years back, I used to find animal prints extremely tacky and unpleasant. Suddenly I see leo fitting every outfit, colour and print. I love what a trend can do to our perceptions. Usually, I don’t jump on every trend train, but this one I couldn’t resist. slay the leo trend with freequent fashion This toned down leopard print from Freequent Fashion, in particular, I am very fond of. I love the traditional print as well, but…

Starbucks Christmas Menu in Denmark Last night I was at a blogger event in Aarhus together with Starbucks Denmark, PR Connect and some beautiful bloggers. We got introduced to the new Christmas menu, and the Starbucks marketing and branding team shared a lot of fun and interesting insights. Christmas is a pretty big deal for Starbucks and they like to get creative with their Christmas menu. The updates in the menu are kept secret up until the launch date, so it was pretty exciting for me to hear what will the menu include. This year we see a return of the Toffee Nut, Gingerbread…

sofia I have missed you I have been back in Bulgaria for about eight days and it has been great. The weather is fantastic, warm, sunny and the temperatures even go up to 27! The perfect Fall scenario. Being back in Sofia reminded me how much I miss the big city. I love living in Aalborg, but the dynamics of a big city such as Sofia give you a completely different vibe. The city is so alive, all the time, and there is so much to do! I love the comfort that Aalborg gives me and the short commutes, but…

Garnier nutrisse lightning spray I lightened my hair by 2, 3 shades, using the Garnier NUTRISSE, Truly Blond lightening spray. It took me about 4,5 days using the spray daily to get the results. story time When I was younger I used to lighten my hair by spraying it with lemon juice and allowing it to dry in the sunlight, and this is how I thought the lightning spray works as well. So when Andreas and I went to Mallorca this summer, I took my Garnier with me. I would spray it all over my hair before we go to the…
