I’ve always loved matte lip colors, it just give such a feminine and sophisticated look. These matteshakers from Lancôme are not just fun to put on – look at the sponge kind of application – but they really give you a fine, simple color that last so good!
Why I think these lip colors works so well, is because you can build the look you desire. Sometime I love a full matte lip for a retro look – other times I like to just dap a small amount on the lips with my finger, to give my lips a little color – but without looking to make upped ..

Both the matte shakers and the lip liners comes in 7 different colors, and these are my favorites right now.

Bikini ready, already?

Wauw, I don’t know about you guys – but the good weather has finally hit Denmark, and suddenly it feels like the summer has arrived. Scared, excited or how do you feel about it? Somehow the summer always takes me by surprise. Even though you can spend the whole winter eating well, working out and taking care of yourself – the feeling of wearing a bikini never excites me.

I’m not the kind of type that gets scared off by dietary supplements – I actually love them! It’s a good and easy way to get all the nutrition and vitamins that you need.
Vitaviva is a brand that I always feel like I can count on. They make good products, they’re reliable and they actually work.
When the summer comes nearer – or a big event of some sort, I always go for their 15 days cleanse. It’s an “easy” detox treatment, that will get rid of all the toxins and waste in you body. But this summer, I’m trying something else.

It’s not that I have a sweet tooth, but I simply just love food. And if I feel like snacking, I always go for something salt – which is not always good for your body.

Therefor I’ve combined these two products to help me out a bit, before the summer and warmer beach days finally arrives.

NO MORE SWEET TOOTH
Craving crusher is a combination of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and nutrient-rich superfoods, such as Spiraling, raw Cocoa Powder, Guarana, Ginger and Korean Ginseng Powder. You take 1-2 pills a day, which contributes to increased energy, healthier skin, a faster metabolism and as a booster to the immune system – but best of all it is a product that helps crush those afternoon sugar cravings.

Craving Crusher, Vitaviva, 430 DKK HERE

BYE BYE CELLULITE
Cellulite away is a complex of herbs, vitamins and amino acids such as Ginger, Cayenne Pepper and Horse Chestnut – yep, this product will kick you hard.
These ingredients all have detoxifying and invigorating qualities that can contribute to burn fat, increase metabolism, boost your circulation and flush toxins from the body.
The most important thing to do if you wanna get rid of your small lumps and bumps is to get a healthy blood circulation – which I also do by dry brushing my skin. (Specially the legs and bum)

Cellulite Away, Vitaviva & Dry Brush, Karmameju, 785 DKK HERE

I’ll start my little dietary supplement treatment now – I hope you get inspired to do the same, so we can get ready to show off some smooth legs and happy bodies!

WEEKLY FAVORITE: Nars Liquid Blush

So, if you’re a makeup addict like I am, you probably already know the super popular blush from Nars called Orgasm. I know, a little saucy name. But if you think about it, is there a more beautiful glow than from an orgasm? Ha! I know, a little too much, but it’s true. So this blush has always been one of my favorites – and loads of makeup artist always try to find a blush similar to that color, but they can’t.

So you have to understand my excitement when I found out, that they made the blush in liquid form. It makes it blend so easily into your skin and give you that perfect pink shade with a little shine and shimmer. It’s perfect for summer – and already one of my absolute favorite blush products.

You gotta try this out! Ill put up a pic on instagram soon, so you can see how it looks on my (apple) cheeks.

You can get it at Sephora or find it here:

TRAVEL: Random pics from Paris

So, as you may know I went to Paris a few weekends ago to visit my best friend, Stine.
I try to come there as often as I can – luckily Paris is not that far away and the tickets aren’t that expensive.
She moved from Copenhagen to Paris 2 years ago now, which sometimes makes it a little hard for me to stay in Copenhagen, because there doesn’t go one day where I don’t miss her. She’s my best friend, my family.

These are just some random pics from my long weekend at hers. As you see, we don’t really do touristic stuff, because I lived in Paris 7 years ago and she now, so we don’t really feel the need. We just make sure to enjoy each others company, eat great food, drinks (lots) of wine and talk talk talk.

I’ll go back to Paris to visit her real soon.

TEST: Toned legs before summer!

TONED LEGSTONED LEGS2TONED LEGS3TONED LEGS5TONED LEGS6

Okay, so I know the weather in Copenhagen sucks – even though we’re in May! It still feels like winter in the city, which just makes everything depressing .. But, I know that summer is just around the corner – and I, somehow, always get super surprised and I always feel unprepared.

Cellulite affects about 90% of every women – and it’s no shame! Yes, it can get worse from bad dieting, smoking and lack of exercise (honestly, let people live ffs) – but most of the times the cellulite is in your genes. People say it might look like the skin of an orange – I say it looks more like cottage cheese, which is so not charming. Therefore, I have done my homework and tested some promising products for you guys. I’ve tested these products for a longer period of time, to make it easier for you to chose and succeed. These products will make the appearance of stubborn cellulite smaller and at the same time, firm, tighten and tone your skin – to give you smooth and sexy legs!

 

I know that you can never get rid of cellulite all the way – but you can make them more invisible, smaller and smoother with a few tips and tricks.
