Brazilian Bum Bum

Ladies and gents, if you haven’t already heard of this award-winning body cream, I am more than happy to introduce you to it! The Brazilian Bum Bum Cream from Sol de Janeiro (to the left) is severely addictive. The smell, pistachio and salted caramel, is amazing. It is not too heavy, not too light and it lasts. After I’ve applied it, I always find myself smelling my arms throughout the day. I’m obsessed. Besides, I love the natural key ingredients for great moisture (etc.), yet it absorbs very quickly. It sort of feels like soufflé and the skin gets super smooth and pinchable. Ha! I highly recommend it, peeps! I went to buy the travel size today as it may come in handy soon enough, but I already have two big ones as well… How cute and Instagram-friendly is the yellow little pot by the way?

Oh, I also found a new soap. I needed it. Savon de Marseille, merci beaucoup!

The Next BOSS

Another day, another business attire. I’m in love with this silk blouse from Hugo Boss and I wouldn’t mind the rest of the outfit as well. Thanks!

EVERLANE

As I’ve been hosting conferences since February this year, I’ve started to look for more corporate daily looks; including blazers, shirts etc. I recently found these white loafers from Everlane and I really like them (especially the orange sole). Even though I wouldn’t be allowed to wear these at work (strict dress code), I would love to take them for walks in the city – running errands with class.

Après-ski

About a week ago, an old pair of Shepherd (of Sweden) sheepskin slippers crossed my mind. My mum gave them to me many years ago and I have not seen them since. I sent her a text to ask if she knew where they were. One minute later I got the reply: “At my place, in the closet. Do you want them back?” She is funny. Of course I want them back, winter is coming and I am in great need of all things furry in order to stay alive!

These marvellous pictures are from Newport. It was love at first sight with every single one of the items. I am dreaming of a Christmas spent in a snow-covered chalet in Switzerland but I will be in Stockholm this year. However, I thought that I can bring the après-ski vibes to me! I have visited my family’s Swiss cottage a couple of times before. I can ensure you that it is just as dreamy as it seems in the magazines! The atmosphere up in the Alps/mountains and the typical interior is truly delightful.

My mother asked me yesterday what I want for Christmas… Here you go, Ma! Imagine the cosiness with those mink Aspen slippers (one cannot have too many), the polar bear or the wolf Whistler cushion and blanket/throw. Besides, the fur is faux but looks super authentic! Oh, and how stunning is this ‘julstjärna’ as we say in Sweden? My flat would certainly get a brilliant Christmas ambience with these impeccable design details!

Le Specs

How cool are these sunglasses from Le Specs? I want them all! I actually ordered one of them already, but you will have to guess which pair…

KIEHL’S

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the best hand cream/lotion/salve on the market as far as I know! It makes my hands super soft, it is not sticky at all and it smells like it ’does good’. KIEHL’S Ultimate Strength Hand Salve comes in particularly handy (excuse the pun) after work since I have a job with a high standard of hygiene; I have to wash my hands frequently and use hand sanitizer. My poor hands would certainly not survive without this product. I strongly recommend a hands-on experience! Hands down. Ha!

Trick or treat?

It’s pumpkin spice everything season and I couldn’t be more in love with PSLs, and the striking colour orange! Images from Zalando.

Life-savers

My skin cannot not do without the UltraCalming series from Dermalogica and my hair is just frizzy and tangled without Orofluido’s elixir and mask.

Nectar Knit-Fog

Julia has officially taken a fancy to sneakers! This trainer style from Cole Haan is so dreamy! First-class design in my opinion. They look super light and soft as well which is perfect; stylish and comfortable! The coral floral colour is super sweet, too. A great tint for springtime! I think they resemble some pretty spring flower or a Cosmopolitan, the cocktail. It hardly gets better than that! Oh, and for all the trendy men out there – I urge you to have a look at the men’s shoes! I really like these for instance (for you).

Made in Italy

Yet another runway look that I fell in love with! I even liked the description of the skirt: “The Spring-Summer 2017 is a journey towards an imaginary Italian Tropic, where the icons traditionally associated with Italy, like bread, pasta and good luck charms are merged with a holiday atmosphere, punctuated by cocktails, ice cream and sequins.” That is D&G for you!
