AUTUMN INSPO POST

autumn love

Hi dolls, as I am writing this the rain is literally pouring down and I’m making some fresh ginger and mint tea. Going to make some healthy banana bread as well tonight.
There is no season I enjoy more than fall. It truly makes me so happy to feel the cold crispy air fill the city, the trees turn into golden beauty and the nights get darker. Hot cocoa and lattes, baking pies and macarons, making soups and watching movies. Absolutely nothing is better than the feeling when autumn arrives. Spring I despise and summer I can sometimes enjoy but not always. Summers never feel cosy or special, it just uh summer… At least the summers in Sweden are awful in other countries I know it is lovely.
Even if I’m feeling sad or low, when it’s autumn it still kinda lifts my spirit. The darkness of the early evenings is soothing in some way.

EYES WIDE SHUT

eyes wide shut

Hi dolls,
It feels so strange to log onto here after the longest break I have ever taken from blogging. I’ve been blogging ever since I was 16 years old, when my blog was at its biggest point with over 400 000 readers per month I was updating several times per day and my whole life was pretty much around my blog.
I started my first personal blog called Louise A back in 2005 when I was only 15 years old, I blogged about my life but quickly realized sharing personal stories, not my forte…
So the following year I started RightNow. This was before any of the big blogs today were even thought of and for many years I was the only big beauty blogger in Sweden and it was an amazing experience. During these 12 years in beauty blogging I have learned an enormous amount about the beauty industry, everything from products safety and the health regulations to ingredients, production, brands and marketing.
I would with confidence say there is not a blogger in Sweden that have the kind of knowledge or experience that I have when it comes to beauty products. Today bloggers accept any marketing deals throw at them for money, not knowing what the brands stands for, if the products are safe or how the customer experience will be for the blog readers.
I was so young when I started blogging and when my blog became so big, I didnt really know how to manage it all and I did not have the experience about product safety as I have today.
So even thought my blog might not be what it use to be, I still feel there are certain things I just need to share and spread awareness about. It might not be updated as often (sadly) as the glory day (that’s meant as a joke hehe) but health problems and the things that causes them is something that is very real and raw to me.

So over the next few weeks I will be sharing blog posts about products that contain cancerous ingredients, one of Sweden’s biggest pharmacies that sell cancer causing products, other scary things related to health problems and injuries, the dangerous ingredients in the food we find at the grocery store, and some other dark sides of the beauty industry and blog world.
These blog posts will most likely entail information that other bloggers won’t tell you because they are afraid of loosing a marketing deal or getting invited to an event. What has driven me to update this blog for 12 years was never the fancy things most bloggers are chasing, my drive was always to inspire, both the readers but also myself.
I feel it is somewhat my responsibility to share what I can know in order to guide people on what to avoid and what to chooses when it comes to make up but also so much more ♥

END OF SUMMER

Hi dolls!
In a strange way this year have gone by so fast but it also feels like the longest year ever.
The summer didnt really deliver in Sweden to be frank, it has been very cold and chilly especially in the evenings.
One thing I also look forward to post is my autumn posts with fashion tips but also the yearly big autumn inspiration post. So stay tuned xx Louise

BRONZE VIBES

bronze glammed eye make up mua glominerals eyeshadows bronzingHi dolls! This is another look I created back in summer 2015. It is still one of my fave looks I’ve ever done so I wanted to repost it ♥

bronze glammed eye make up mua glominerals eyeshadows bronzing bronze glammed eye make up mua glominerals eyeshadows bronzing

products

Eyes – Glo Minerals eyeshadow (sand pebble) and Maybelline eyeshadow palette, L’oréal super liner eye liner, L’oréal mascara
Base – Glo Minerals concealer (best concealer ever!!), Sensai foundation (color natural beige), L’oréal bronzing powder
Lips – Mac Lip Liner “In Sync” and L’oréal  lipgloss shade”206/For the Ladies”
Brows – Anastasia brow wiz

HOW TO CREATE THE LOOK

For the eyes I started off with applying an eye shadow primer all over the eye lid, then I used a very fluffy eyeshadow brush and lightly swept a shimmery nude shadow all over the eye lid. I then applied a dark brown bronze color from the Maybelline palette on the outer corner of my eyes and in the crease. In the middle of the eyes I applied a gold shadow with lots and lots of shimmer and finished off with a darker beige shadow in the inner corner of my eyes. And throughout this process I blended the shadows a few times and then applied a bit more. To finish I drew a very thin line of the eyeliner and directly after I used a pointy eyeshadow brush to apply anther dark brow/ bronze color from the Maybelline palette. It looks like a eyeliner that is in bronze gold, but when the eyeliner dried the eyeshadow got darker and it looked just like a normal eyeliner only with more effect and shimmer but still very natural. I actually do this a lot, first eyeliner and then straight after a apply a darker eyeshadow on top of the eye liner and it looks so nice.

LONDON THROWBACK

 

pierre hermes macarons knightsbridge london
Hi dolls!
As I was scrolling through my old blog post I stumbled upon this on from mid july 2015. It was a fantastic time in London, I had just leased a new flat and compared to the Swedish the summer, the weather was absolutley amazing. So here is a reblog/throwback of my old post, if you like macarons and are visiting London don’t miss this place!

pierre hermes knightsbridge macarons
13 Lowndes St, London SW1X 9EX

Earlier this week I was walking around in Knightsbridge and decided to pay the Pierre Hermé macaron store a visit. The man that worked in the store said that the selection of macarons was less the day we visited the store than it usually is. So it was not the kind of selection as they have in Paris. I remember when I was in Paris and I thought Pierre Hermés macarons were the best I had ever tried, even better than Ladurée! I only had the salted caramel this time and unfortunately it was not good at all, it tasted burnt and left a bad taste afterwards. But my mother had some other flavours and said they were much nicer. But if I would have to compare the two different brands today, I would say Ladurée macarons are nicer.

The area where the store is located is so lovely, one of my favourite parts of London so I do recommend a visit to the area. Motcomb street just next to the shop have lots of lovely little shops and cafés.

HOW TO GET LONG HAIR WITH ARGAN OIL

I often get questions regarding my long hair and a few years ago a wrote the ultimate guide on how to get long hair. One of the main steps in getting your hair to grow is to skip sulfates schampos, never use hair masks directly onto the scalp as you want to keep your pores fresh and free from silicone, but most importantnly regulary use argan oil!

Jag får ofta frågor om mitt hår, hur jag tar hand om det och hur jag fått det så långt. En produkt som jag använt regelbundet i princip senaste två åren är ren argan olja från Dr Organics. Den är 100% olja vilket är det enda “korrekta” när det gäller argan olja. Helst ska den vara tappad i en mörk flaska då om flaskan exponeras för ljus så kan oljan förstöras. Så jag har köper en olja för håret (dr organics) och nu ska jag testat en annan i mörk flaska som är ännu dyrare för huden.
I följande inlägg kan ni läsa mer om min inlägg om argan olja – 1, 2 , 3 och 4.
Jag har alltid köpt oljan på Holland & Barret i London, som är UKs största hälsokedja. Älskar verkligen den butiken och ni måste gå dit när ni är i London om ni gillar spännande hälsokost och naturlig hud- och hårvård.
Men såg precis att den säljs här nu också i Sverige! Här säljs även inpackningen som syns på bilden från samma serie, grymt bra inpackning utan massa silikoner!
Så det är ett varmt tips från mig om ni vill förändra och förbättra ert hår :)
