Working from home and Red Lips

26 april, 2020
working from home

By now I wake up in the mornings and have a sort-of routine implemented before sitting down by my computer and beginning my workday. A couple of mornings my lovely blog-boss-babe Nathalie and I have been going for long walks to get our steps up and it has been the best start to the day. Working from home is made a lot easier when you can have those…

Glow Favorites

Get the glow

How the sunshine has got me bringing out the big guns for a glowing look. It is no secret that spring has properly arrived to southern Sweden by now and that we are about 2 weeks from seeing people sporting various shades of pink. Yes, many Swedes still live under the illusion of ”once I have burned I will go brown”. Lets just cut the crap right there…

Manicure Monday #2 Essie Urban Jungle

Manicure Monday

How a creamy white nail polish manicure made me realise that color is fun and simplicity might be chic but it is a bit boring. Just to get one thing out in the open, this nail polish is not French-manicure white. It is a grey, creamy white pastel coloured dream. I don’t use the word dream lightly, especially not when I’ve just also called it boring in the…

Give me all the color and I shall never go grey !

1 mars, 2020

How a morning of self-care , flipping through magazines and just giving myself the time to jot down ideas for the blog got me craving all kinds of color. When I first moved to Sweden I loved strong colors and patterns for my outfits, but very quickly adapted to a more minimalistic and Scandinavian fashion-style. Partly to fit in I guess, to not stand out in a crowd.…

The Vanity Situation

18 februari, 2020

How a neat and tidy vanity can give you the illusion of being a very pulled-together person. I could have styled this corner for the sake of the photo, turned the perfume bottles towards the camera to give you a slight chance in seeing which perfumes I am currently using. But no, instead I simply snapped the photo in the moment I felt like it, in order to…

Lipstick Every Damn Day!

11 februari, 2020

A story on how lipstick gave me a purpose and a sense of achievement during hard times. My year really did not start off in the best possible way. Yeah, shocking huh? Considering 2020 was supposed to be all kinds of amazing in all horoscopes I read. I had been ill over Christmas which resulted in less rest than I had anticipated (and needed) and I already felt…

Glitter and Sparkles

30 december, 2019

NYE is coming up tomorrow and transporting us into a new decade. Imagine that, an entirely new decade to fill with glitter and sparkles. Or like a cheerful friend of mine said this morning ”Another decade for us to turn into balls and end up questioning every single decision we have made during it when we find ourselves in this exact same spot in december 2029”. Lets stick…

Red Lips

red lips

Right, who else is tired of reading about red lips during the holiday season ? I sure am, especially when I read people raving and comparing two shades of red which nobody but beauty geeks can tell a difference between. Yet, I am guilty of this too. In fact, one week before my wedding day I sent photos to a group of friends of me wearing about 10…

The Business of Beauty.

The Business of Beauty

My name is Gabriella, I live in Malmö and work at an international cosmetic company. I have a huge passion for all things people, beauty, influencer marketing, sexology and I truly wish that people stopped underestimating the impact of the beauty industry…
