Brand Focus | Givenchy Beauty.

*This Post contains PR Samples |

I recently realized that I never really talked about Givenchy beauty on here. I might not have the biggest collection of their products, but the few I do own, I absolutely own. So today I thought I would go through my Givenchy beauty bits with you and let you know why you might need them in your beauty bag!

1. Givenchy L'Interdit Perfume 
One of my fave summer perfumes is L'Interdit by Givenchy. It has subtle floralness to it without smelling like a whole field of wild flowers. I am normally someone who stays awaz from very floral scents but this one just hits the spot for me and is perfect for spring/summer time. I am not the best at describing scents so I would say just give it a spritz whenever you'll be around a beauty counter. You won't regret it! 

2. Givenchy Mister Brow Filler 
Whenever I am running late and I have to quickly fix my brows, the Givenchy Mister Brow Filler is my life saviour. It's a thicker gel which holds my brows in place, gives the more volume and also gives it more depth as it's quite pigmented. But I would say handle with caution. Because it is so pigmented you are better off with applying a bit at a time and not go all in at once. 

3. Ginvenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow
Similar to the Mister Brow Filler, the Ombre Couture cream eyeshadow is my 'lazy day eye look' saviour. It's a very buildable brown cream eyeshadow that is very easy to work with. Most of the time I wear it quite sheer all over the lid or instead of liner on my upper lash line. But I can definetly build it up when I need a more dramatic look. I can also imagine it working well as a base when you have a non-lazy day. 

Have you tried anything from Givenchy yet?

The Spring/Summer Dress Edit.

*PR Samples included

It's finally the time of the year where we can get out all of our fave summery dresses. I am someone who wear dresses all year round (yes, also in winters). But I still get excited about lightweight linen fabrics and floral patterns. And who doesn't love a beautiful midi or maxi dress when it's hot and sunny outside? Well, I certainly do.

Today I want to share with you my current fave picks and new in pieces in my wardrobe. Enjoy!

Are you excited for summer dress season?

Five Things To Purge From Your Closet Right Now.

I have recently talked about 'Minimalism & My Closet'. This is a topic I am absolutely passionate about. However, as much as I love the idea of a capsule wardrobe, I am not sure that it would actually work for me. But we all have certain categories of items in our closet, that we could and should get rid of right now.

It doesn't fit (anymore). 
I guess we all have at least one item in our closet that just doesn't fit. And yet, we hold onto it. Why? Well, we either hope to fit into it one day, or we used to love it and it just doesn't fit anymore. Either way, it is time to get rid of it!

The price tag is still on. 
I am guilty of this. But sometimes I am even glad that I leave the tags on until I actually wear the item. This way, when I go through my closet and I see a dress with a tag that I bought last year, I know I haven't worn it and I probably never will. So again, get rid of it!

It's completely uncomfortable. 
This one is a hard one. I used to have quite a few items in my closet that looked beautiful, fit like a glove but I just don't reach for them. Why? Because they feel awful when I wear them. Be it shoes that rub or a sweater that itches, life is too short for uncomfortable clothes. Toss them! (and by that I mean to sell or donate, please don't actually toss it.)

For a red carpet event. 
I often preach that when you see a dress you love, buy it just in case you need it. And while most of the time you will end up needing a cute dress for a wedding or a work event, you probably won't need an outfit that can only be worn to the Oscars. Unless you are Angelina Jolie or Scarlett Johansson and if you are, hey girl.. hold onto your sparkly floor length gown. Otherwise, it's time to go. 

For the memories. 
This is probably the hardest category. The memory items. Okay, please don't just get rid of your wedding dress or your childs first little outfit. But definitely go through those 'memory items' and think about if you really, really want to hold onto them. And if you do, store them away safely. There is no need for them to take up space in your wardrobe. 

Happy declutter!

The Products That Changed My Skin.

*{This post was written in collaboration with}

Around a month back, my skin started acting up. I broke my ankle and spend some time in the hospital. I guess it was a mixture of all the medication, stress and scaling down my skincare routine that let my skin looking dull, dry and very textured. When I was back home and starting to feel a bit better I wanted to work on getting my skin back to normal. 

I did some research and decided to treat myself to some new products. I have been testing these over the past few weeks and today I will share with you the products that have literally changed my skin.

This has been one of the best products I have tried in a long time. I wanted to try a good chemical peel for a while and let me tell you. I won't go back. My skin looks plumper, fresher and I even think my pores got smaller. Obsessed!

I heard so many amazing things about this mask. And as my skin really lacked in the glow department, I thought some enzymes would be the right thing for me. This is for sure my new go-to mask. My skin feels so much softer and more alive. I use this about once a week.

Even though I was on the hunt for some new products, I wanted to play it safe and stick with a moisturizer I know and love. For me, there is nothing better than the Clinique Moisture Surge. A very light moisturizer, which leaves my skin feeling hydrated without any tacky feeling. YAY!

Just before my little accident I actually used up all my serums. I knew I wanted something with Hyaluronic Acid. But I also wanted to incorporate some Vitamin C into my routine for that extra glow. So right now I am using the La Roche Posay Hyalu B5 serum at night and their Pure Vitamin C10 serum in the day. The perfect combination for me.

Whenever my skin looks dull and dry I know I have to start using oils again. I know it can be a bit intimidating, especially in the summer. But I would just say if you start using oils maybe start by only using them at night. The Caudalie Vinosource oil is a beautiful light oil and doesn't feel 'too much' even in the hot summer nights we had recently. I am in love.

If you want to change up your beauty products or simply stock up on your faves, Notino is having a Summer Black Friday week starting tomorrow, the 8th of July until the 14th!

Happy shopping everyone!
