I have been planning my blog a lot lately and I was thinking it would be nice to have some posts that I post continually. I have the Pinterest lately post, which to be honest is mostly a lack of other material haha.
But I decided to make a Friday favorites post. This post will come up every Friday (duh). And I hope it will be something my readers can look forward to.
I will post some of my current favorite things, both material stuff and also podcasts, food, articles etc. Just a little mix of stuff I really enjoy and want to share with you guys.
So first up on this lovely last Friday of 2016 are these babies:
1. Lyckan i det lilla by Ernst Kirchsteiger:
So this one is mostly directed to my swedish readers. I don’t think it’s been translated to another language sadly.
Some of you may crank your nose at this one but let me just say this book is really inspiring and I think you will enjoy it whether you’re a devoted Ernst fan or if you’re among those who find his overly ambitious attitude provoking. I must say I was somewhere in between before reading this book but now I’m hands down an Ernst devote.
This book really makes you reflect over your life and the way you think. It’s easy to read and just leaves you feeling really warm and happy inside. It teaches you to have a more relaxed and gentle approach to life and as an anxious perfectionist that I am it was a really great read for me.
2. Aviendo natural revitalising hand cream:
When I was visiting my mom for christmas I had put this cream on the kitchen counter and she told me with a slightly disgusted look on her face to remove that cream from the kitchen please. I didn’t understand why a hand cream would create such disgust but I took it away and said, “it’s just a hand cream mom”, where she answered, “oh, It looks like a hemorrhoid cream”.
So my point here is, the packaging of this cream is nothing to hang in the christmas tree, as we say in Sweden. Meaning it looks pretty darn ugly. But apart from this it is absolutely AMAZING. I am very addicted to hand cream and I don’t even wanna know how many tubes of it I have consumed over the years. I have never tried one that is this good. It absorbs so fast into the hands and I don’t need to apply it again until I’ve washed my hands. It also smooths out lines and I think this cream would be really appreciated by those looking for some anti aging benefits as well.
Judging from the tube you may think this cream has that “no perfume” hospital smelling scent, but fear not dear friends, it actually smells really nice. It’s not poisoned with drying perfume but still has enough of a natural scent to make it really pleasant. And like icing on the cake it is free from parabens, phthalates and mineral oil and it´s vegan and cruelty free. You can read the whole list of ingredients on their website.
The price for this little miracle is just as sweet as the cream itself, only 129 DKK.
3. Narciso Rodriguez EdP Poudrée
No better way to start the new year with a new scent. I got this perfume as a christmas gift from my sweet grandma this christmas. It is so lovely. I personally love perfume and I feel naked without it. I know perfume is something very individual and everyone have different taste. However I think you should at least have a sniff on this one.
One thing I absolutely can’t stand are really sweet and heavy perfumes. I get headache and nausea when I’m wearing a perfume like that.
This one is so feminine and it has a slightly sweet scent without being too much. As the name states it´s very “powdery” and it really adds to the femininity. It´s mild yet exciting and works for every occasion.
As a giant plus the bottle is really pretty and if you need an argument to spend money on a new perfume you can tell yourself it’s really affordable considering it will double as a really nice interior detail. Two birds in one shot.
That was all for this Friday favorites, I really hope you enjoyed this post!
Hello dear friends!
I have put together a little collage of some of my current inspiration favorites from my dear friend Pinterest. A yummy little cocktail of fashion, beauty and interior, cheers!
Hej kära vänner!
Jag har satt ihop ett litet kollage utav några av mina inspofavoriter från min kära vän Pinterest. En smaskig liten cocktail av mode, skönhet och inredning, skål!
Hello dear reader(s)!
I hope December is treating you well so far. Living in Scandinavia during these cold, dark winter months is absolutely horrifying. I leave for work in darkness, spend the whole day inside a mall only to get outside in complete darkness. It sounds like a recipe for depression, but thank the lord for Pinterest!
I have been staring my eyeballs out for some nice inspiration to keep my mood at bay and trying to focus on the positive sides of winter. Because despite darkness, runny noses and numb fingers, winter is also the time for Christmas and celebration. There is no better way to brighten the dark than to dress up and sparkle the shit out of the cold winter.
So what could possibly be better than cuddling up in bed with some hot chocolate, planning your Christmas outfit while listening to the sweet sound of Michael Bublés soothing voice.
I have put together some nice inspiration for you, enjoy!
Hej kära läsare!
Jag hoppas December har varit snäll mot er so far! Att bo i Skandinavien under dessa kalla, mörka vintermånader kan vara väldigt skrämmande. Jag åker till jobbet i mörker, spenderar hela dagen i ett köpcentrum, bara för att komma ut i komplett mörker. Det låter som ett recept på depression men tacka Gud för Pinterest!
Jag har stirrat ögonen ur mig efter lite trevlig inspirastion för att hålla humöret uppe och försökt fokusera på vinterns possitiva sidor. För trots mörker, rinnande näsor och frusna fingrar, så är vintern även tid för jul och firande. Det finns inget bättre sätt att lysa upp mörkret än att klä upp sig och glittra skiten ur den kalla vintern. Så vad vore bättre än att mysa ner sig i sängen med en kopp varm choklad, planera juloutfiten med Michael Bublés tröstande röst i öronen.
Jag ha satt ihop lite trevlig inspiration för er, enjoy!
