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…

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…

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…

dubai diary – part one Hey guys, thank you for stopping by! This post is taking forever but I have been so tired these days all I want to do is pizza and couch time 😀 . Today I am sharing a small travel diary from our first days in Dubai.  First of all, It was a super uncomfortable flight to Dubai ( from CPH to Istanbul and then Dubai). It was filled with the kind of children that make you feel child hitting is alright, and actually, should be encouraged. Or maybe parents hitting :X. Like srsly, if you let your…

Hey guys, thanks for stopping by 🙂 . I love braided hairstyles and this one is my absolute favorite at the moment. It’s pretty hard for me to braid my own hair, but with this hairstyle in particular it’s possible, without too much hustle. I am not the best at it yet :D, but it comes with practise, (after few mental breakdowns, disappointments, cry outs and arm aches) and I can see that every time i recreate it it gets better and better. 🙂 how to – double french braids This is one of my favorite tutorials for this look.…

The purpose of this post is to give a shoutout to a young danish entrepreneur –  Nina Gaunø Fredberg.  Really inspiring young girl who is working hard on making her dreams come true. This entry is not sponsored, and it’s a genuine shout out, as I truly appreciate young entrepreneurs like her and everyone who is chasing their dreams.

       I wear perfume for myself, It adds up to my mood and general well being. As ridiculous it might sound to some people, others (scent freaks like me) understand it perfectly.  Perfume is the most intense form of memory – Jean Paul Guerlain         My sense of smell is emotional, a scent I fancy must evoke beautiful feeling in me. When it comes to my perfume choices, a lot depends on the state of mind I like to put myself in. A perfume can have a great impact on my mood, and can enhance almost any experience.…

I love fall

There are so many reasons why I absolutely love fall. The colours, the holidays, the food. I have no post-summer blues. 

Nothing like taking a walk on a warm Fall day. Perfectly balanced mix of sun and clouds with light chill wind, warm enough to enjoy your time outside and cold enough to do it in a killer outfit. Fall gets all the good outfits. No other season allows you to go outside in big knit, mini skirt and over the knee boots.  

Ahh the bomber…Oversized, embroidered, pink, black blue you name it, there is a style for everyone out there! Funny thing about bomber though…They were quite popular in World War I. How come you wonder, well originally the bomber jacket was created for military pilots and it was called a “Flight” jacket.  But obviously that style escalated quite quickly and took over the fashion world.  Global funk – Danish brand So today I will share with you, one of my favorite bombers in Fall 2016. And it’s this beautiful, mad red bomber from Global Funk. It’s quite simple and minimalistic, following the traditional…

richmond finch satin phonecases

Last year I got the Iphone 6s as a gift. I had hard time adjusting to it due to the size, but once I got used to that I absolutely love itWhat I love about the Iphone 6 besides the OS is the beautiful design of the phone. It’s an Apple thing, they just know and understand how important the design is. Hands down, they make the most beautiful to look at products on the market right now. 

What I am trying to say with this, is that I love how the phone looks and in no way think it’s necessary to get a case for the sake of it’s beauty. I do need a case though.
The phone’s size and weight, make it a bit unnatural to hold on to, and for me in particular it could be very easy to drop it. As beautiful this phone is, it’s just that fragile, so for me a case is a necessity.
