I finally finished painting my dining area and yesterday my new new furniture arrived. So happy to see my kitchen coming together, even though theres still a long way to go. For the walls, I chose the colour ‘Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow’ from File Under Pop. The perfect light shade of beige, that compliment my new chairs very well. The Result Chair in a greyish beige stained version.

Skin Shots

AD FOR NEW NORDIC

I’m super excited to start every day in January with a shot of ‘Skin Care – Hyaluron Shot’ in collaboration with New Nordic.
Taking care of my skin from both the inside and outside is no news, but I must admit that with December always being so busy, it’s a month where I often forget my good habits and routines. So January is all about getting back on track. I’m going to try to combat dry winter skin and crows feet by drinking one of these every morning.
The shots contain hyaluronic acid, which is a molecule that naturally occurs in your body and packs a ton of skin-boosting benefits, including moisture. Sea buckthorn is a superfood for your skin loaded with antioxidants. Extract from the tagetes plant (marigold) has been considered beneficial in reducing inflammation and supposedly helps prevent wrinkles.The shots are free from dairy, gluten and GMO. You should take the supplements for at least 24 days. They taste better cold, so I store them in the fridge next to my breakfast – this way I don’t forget to start the day with a shot. A super easy supplement to add to your daily intake of vitamins. I’ll get back to you with a review on the New Nordic Hyaluron Shots in about a month – so stay tuned.

Kiyoko Lip Balm

The lip balm from Kiyoko is made in a small factory in the Netherlands specialised in natural cosmetics and is made with 100 % natural ingredients. Each tube is hand labeled with one of four different labels – mine reads ‘ a lip balm that softens your lips while reading your favourite magazine’. Kiyoko means clear, pure and clean – just like the balm.

Cold Care

These harsh winter days are taking a toll of my skin, so my face and hands are in need of some extra care. My best recipe for some cold care is this old favourite – Skin Food from Weleda. It’s inexpensive and works wonders on dry skin. You can use it on dry patches just like this little miracle, but once a week (at least) during winter I use it all over my fave and neck for an intensive overnight repair. Skin Food was born in 1926 and is still certified natural and contains organic chamomile, calendula and wild pansy to soothe rough skin. Shop Skin Food here. Silver bracelet from AYM.

Hyaluronic Serum

Is there a rule about how many times a day it’s ok to apply a serum? Most of my day today will be spent in bed watching Netflix while I drink gallons of water, trying to make my tired face look somewhat normal again. This little helper comes in handy on days like this – Pestle & Mortar Pure Hyaluronic Serum. The hyaluronic serum supposedly hydrates and soothes sensitive skin while smoothing fine lines and restoring youthful elasticity. Just what my skin needs on this first day of 2018. The serum is lightweight and soaks into skin in a matter of seconds so I might go for an extra layer today. Pestle & Mortar Pure Hyaluronic Serum contains hyaluronic acid which is proven to hydrate so combined with a facemask or two this should be the solution to dull party-tired skin.
