Beautiful beach vibes

Lately I’ve been spoiled with some awesome products and I want to share a bit of my favorites with you guys!

The theme is of course: Beach vibes! Because it’s summer and in Denmark, the weather is insanely hot, perfect for a day at the beach.

ESSIE: Gel setter and Treat, love & Color


Through the years, Essie has become this “power brand” regarding nail varnish, and I adore the colors and the long lasting formula that it has, these two (from the left) is a Gel Setter top coat, it not only works as a top coat, but it also tints your varnish in a purple/pink hue, very cute! And the second one is a nail treatment varnish, that keeps your nails strong, it’s from Essie’s “TLC” collection, this color is “Mauve-Tivation” and is a soft purple/pink tone, and I love it, very summery. These two polishes together, lasted without chipping one single bit, a WHOLE week, rather impressive!

ECOOKING: Lip balm with pomegranate


– The danish store called “Matas” has a new collab partner called “Beame.”, and through “Beame.” there’s been a bunch of beauty highlights, that is on sale for that month, one of the June highlights, is the gorgeous Ecooking lip balm that you see on the picture above, and it’s insanely good! It’s all organic, raw and natural ingredients that the woman behind Ecooking is using, and who doesn’t love that?? I have this baby in my work bag, and it’s on my lips most weekdays! The scent of pomegranate that this lip balm has is amazing without being too much – a very natural scent.

HH SIMONSEN: The wet brush


I’ve been a fan of this brush since it first came on the market a billion years ago, it is simply amazing! No tangles, no ruined hair and best of all – such a fantastic design, I repurchase this brush every time I need a new brush, they truly are worth the fuss.

ESSIE: Fairy Tailor


I cant get around being in love with Essie, it’s affordable and the varnish just lasts ages, this time I’ve chosen to highlight this nude varnish – This baby is insanely cute and would go perfect with that natural beach look! You know the “casual minimal makeup” kinda vibe? This is your varnish for that occasion! (Or just for work, as I use it for!) it’s not over the top, just subtle, I like.. Again it lasts about a week, and I am a busy bee, I normally make my varnish chip in about a day or two!

It’s so me

I love make-up, nail polish and all sorts of lip balm! I keep updated on almost every beauty product on the market, and make sure that I only use the best of the best, cause I have to live with my body for a long time! BUT… It’s not always the most expensive that’s the best out there, so I research a lot. At the moment, I like Wella shampoo/conditioner a lot! It’s not super expensive, and it just works for my hair.

Anything that can make my lips soft, even when fall is upon us, is a best friend of mine, that’s for sure! I hate choppy lips, and I tend to get it a lot during fall and winter season, so I stack up on lip balm and for a few weeks ago, I found a great one! “The Body Shop Foundation” has a lip butter, and it’s amaaazing! I haven’t had any trouble with my lips at all when I have used that lip balm! Its perfect.. And who doesn’t want perfect and soft lips? Hehe.. The Body Shop isn’t the cheapest, but oh well… A girl has to spoil herself every now and then! Besides, it went for a good cause, saving the rainforest and educating people on how to preserve their nature! You can actually support a lot of other causes too, you get a little green coin, and then you decide where to donate it to. Saving the rainforest, an animal cause – all kinds of stuff really! So go get one girls, and support a cause of your own choice!

I also bought some nail polish, and I was going for elegant, sophistication and edgy, cause its mainly for when I’m working at the jewelry store, I want something pretty that matches what I’m selling, so I found two Essie polishes that was exactly what I needed a week ago! “Over the edge” is a metallic black, it has a great little shine feature to it, so it doesn’t go all punk or emo, it’s classy and edgy at the same time! “Recessionista” is a very dark red, almost brown polish that is very classy and delicate, but still so dark that it has an edge to it, so it’s also pretty perfect for the store! I almost bought another one, but finally decided for this, and I don’t regret it, cause its perfect when applied!

I’m thinking about buying some make-up from “Nilens Jord”, a brand I really love, cause they don’t test their products on animals, that I’m pretty willing to support! But again, their fairly expensive, so I choose carefully when I buy something by them.

I posted some pic’s here of the lip butter and the nail polishes, so you guys can see it properly, the one where I hold the lip butter, I’m wearing the “Recessionista” polish, so you guys can see it better, it’s hard to imagine that color to be honest! XD
