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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

sponsored by Malacus.dk  Hey, guys hope you are well! Today we are talking all shoes and bags! Hope you enjoy this entry :). Versace 19.69 is one of the brands that has conceptualised fashion, and this is probably the reason why they have taken the market by storm. It’s not just a purse or just a pair of shoes. It’s an expression of personality, of desire, of freedom. The values of the fashion house are strong and soaked into every line they produce. Fashion is one of the most transient industries and Versace19.69 is successfully creating a legacy. Now let’s…

Complete your fall wardrobe with these affordable pieces Hey guys, hope you are well! Today I am sharing three really cute Fall pieces that happen to be on super affordable prices. First, is this super pretty clutch from Glitter. Perfect mini size and really cute. Even though it’s a clutch, the way it’s shaped makes it pretty spacey in a way. You can easily fit your phone, hairbrush, some makeup, wallet and so on. The quality is nice, fake leather with some golden details.  I got mine in the physical Glitter shop in Aalborg, but you can purchase it online for the…

FalL, I love you It’s almost that time of the year again! Autumn is my absolute favorite season and for so many reasons. I love the colours, the holidays, the food and the spiced lattes. (excuse me for being so basic, but PSL taste goooood). It is so magical to me, I love when trees change color, and everything is so beautiful. Nothing like enjoying a walk on a warm Fall day in a killer outfit, as fall gets all the good outfits too. Layering is so much fun, and the colors are so beautiful. But to be honest, I…

It’s simply the most amazing brand I have ever tried, and I have tried…

*In collaboration with Louis Nielsen & Brandheroes.com  Why do you need to get your eyes tested? It’s extremely important to get your eyes checked regularly even if you don’t think anything is wrong. An eye test can easily detect dangerous decreases in very early stages, like glaucoma (one of the most common causes of blindness) general eye diseases, diabetes or high blood pressure. If you want to get a good idea of the condition of your eyes you need to get an actual eye exam performed by a professional. Often I see these “free eye test” offers in optics and…
