LONDON THROWBACK

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!

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.

SIMPLE MAKE UP LOOK

Hi dolls! I thought I would share a easy and simple make up, that literally only takes about half an hour to do! Unfortunaley I took most of the photos with the strong flash on, so the contrast between the foundation, concealer and bronzer looks quite harsh in some of the photos. But don’t worry it looked great in daylight ;) The other day I went to MAC and bought a new peach-pink lipliner. It gives a lot of colour and defintion, but not too much so it looks like you are from the 90s (haha!).

After almost 10 years as a beauty blogger, countless of different hair colours and make up styles, I feel that I finally found a beauty look that I truly love and feels flattering and natural. A lot of different make up looks make you look quite different and I personally prefer to look like myself, just a little bit more glam ;)

This is my favourite glam yet “natural” looking make up, a base with a bit of glow and bronze, beige eyeshadow all over the eye lid, a bit of shimmer underneath the eyebrows, thick eyeliner, long lashes and glossy lips. It took less than 20-30 minutes to finish this look! I used the following products;

BaseSensai foundation, MAC and GloMinerals concealer, L’oréal Bronzing powder
Eyes – Maybelline paletten the Nudes, I only used the light beige shadows. L’oréal eyeliner, L’oréal mascara, Eylure fransar. I used the fine/thinner lashes, I only use the thicker lasher during the evenings.
Lips - MAC Lip liner in sync and Clarins lipgloss
Brows – Eylure eyebrow pencil

Hej babes! Tänkte att jag skulle dela med mig av en jättenkel och snygg sminkning. Tyvärr tog jag de flesta av bilderna med blixt så kontrasterna mellan concealern, foundation och bronzern ser lite hårda ut på vissa bilder. Såg bra ut i dagsljus :) Köpte en ny rosa/persiko färgad lip liner som är sååå himla snygg! Den syns precis lagom mycket för att inte se ut som man kommer från 90-talet (haha) men samtidigt får definerad läppar.

Efter snart 10 år som skönhetsbloggare, flera olika hårfärger och sminkningar så känner jag att jag äntligen har hittat en look där jag både känner mig snygg men samtidigt naturligt. Ofta när man gör mer avancerade sminkningar så är det lätt att man ser annorlunda ut än sitt “naturliga jag”. Personligen föredrar jag sminkningar där man ser ut som sig själv bara lite glammigare ;)

Så den här sminkningen är perfekt för det, ljusbeiga ögonskugga med tydlig eyeliner och lång fransar, en bas med mycket lyster och bronze och så glansiga och markerade läppar. Tog mindre änr 20-30 minuter att göra denna sminkning! Jag använde följande produkter (har länkat till de exakta produkterna/färgerna);

BasSensai foundation, MAC och GloMinerals concealer, L’oréal Bronzing powder
ÖgonMaybelline paletten the Nudes, endast använt den ljusaste matta färgen. L’oréal eyeliner, L’oréal mascara, Eylure fransar. Använde endast de fransarna som är fine (dvs tunnare), de som är tjockare och ger mer volym använder jag endast till kvällen.
Läppar - MAC Lip liner in sync och Clarins läppglans
Ögonbryn - Eylure ögonbrynspenna

BEAUTIFUL LONDON

A few snapshots from an evening walk. Chelsea bridge in the evening is actually really beautiful. I love going on powerwalks along the river, so if you are in the area take a walk along the chelsea embankment and enjoy the beautiful view of albert bridge and chelsea bridge. Even though it is crazy busy big city, it is still quite calm around that area and perfect for powerwalking. However I prefer to walk along the chelsea side of the river!

KNIGHTSBRIDGE AT NIGHT

After a late dinner at Mandarin last week me and my mum decided to talk a late walk through Knightsbridge. My favourite part of London! No place in London makes me so happy as strolling around Knightsbridge, walk through hyde park and of course go to Harrods haha! This is the area I first fell in love with in London and I have so many lovely memorise from hanging out with friends, going for lunches, tea and dinners at different places in this area.

So if you are going for a weekend trip to London and want to experience what Knightsbridge I would recommend Bvlgari hotel or Mandarin Oriental for drinks after dinner.
If you instead want to go somewhere for pre drinks before clubbing, then try Buddha Bar, Eclipse or Jaks (both located on Walton Street) or Nozomi (Beauchamp place).

Efter en sen middag förra veckan så tog jag och mamma en kvällspromenad genom Knightsbridge. Mitt favoritområde i London! Det finns ingen plats i London som gör mig så glad som att strosa omkring i Knightsbridge, ta en promenad genom hyde park och gå till Harrods såklart haha! Det var när jag först flyttade till London 2011 som jag verkligen förälskade mig i den här delen av stan, tyvärr är det rent ut sagt sviiindyrt att bo i Knightsbridge så det är bara att glömma. Men jag har så många underbara minnen från promenader, luncher, middagar och drinkar på olika härliga ställen här så tänkte att jag skulle dela med mig av några favoritställen.

Om du är i London på en weekendresa och vill ta några drinkar efter maten så är Bvlgari Hotel eller Mandarin Orientel perfekt. Där kan man sitta och prata med sitt sällskap utan att behöva skrika över hög musik (haha) i väldigt trevlig miljö. Om man istället vill gå till något mer livligt ställe med högre musik och mer pre party känsla innan man ska gå ut och festa så testa Buddha Bar, Eclipse eller Jaks (båda ligger på Walton Street) eller Nozomi (Beauchamp place).

Hi dolls! When I was at Harrods the other day I decided to take some outfit photos, since I have been really bad with posting outfit photos in the last couple of months. I got a hang up on white jeans at the moment. It just feels so fresh and chic in the summer I can’t believe I didnt use to wear it more before!
