Top Beauty Pick in the Sun

Standard
It’s hard to believe, but this tiny little country in the far north has been warmer than many of the southern nations this summer. Most people travel to Greece, Italy or Spain this time of year to escape the lousy weather and get some much-needed sun.
Summers are very unpredictable this far north, but this summer has broken many heat records around the country, with the average temperature in July ranging from 25 to 30 degrees Celsius. (77 to 86 Fahrenheit).
Since we’re not used to this sunny weather it’s easy to get burnt, so it’s very important to wear sunscreen.
Below you can see my favorites. I use Cliniderm light & matifying with SPF 25 on my face,neck and chest. And I use Nivea sun protect with SPF 30 on my lips.
I couldn’t find an image of the one I use on my body but I use Nivea moisturising sun lotion with SPF 20, it comes in a blue bottle with a yellow cap.
What is your favorite beauty pick in the sun?
I never wear perfume in the sun, or hairspray. Partly to avoid dark spots but mostly to avoid the wasp.
I don’t use much make-up either. Just a little bit of concealer and an eyeliner.
The sun makes my face look fresh enough.

Let’s go!

Standard
Sorry for being absent today but I’ve had some connection problems all day so haven’t been able to make an update.
And now it’s time for bed.
I’ll be well on my way to dreamland in just a bit.
It’s been a hot day, so I think I might dream about some lovely white winter snow.
Night Night
Let's go!

Coffee Shop

Standard
It’s time for bed but it’s too hot to sleep. We’re having yet another tropical night.
The forecast for the entire week; temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius.
Now I’m longing for the cabin and the sea again, but while we were there we had sunshine just the first day. Such a waste, but it is what it is.
Tomorrow I’m off to the coffee shop and I think I might dress in vintage cuteness.
Wish everyone a fabulous new summer week!
I better get some much-needed sleep.

One skirt, two looks

Standard
How to style a floral skirt?
Floral skirts often has many colors so I would pick one of the colors and repeat it in the top and accessories.
In my first outfit I’m repeating both white and yellow, while in the second outfit I’m repeating the color blue.
Any of the colors found in the skirt would look good paired with it.
Since the colors of the skirt are bright I’ve chosen bright colors on the rest of the outfit as well.
My sets have recently become very popular at Polyvore and I’ve gained almost 2000 followers the last week. One of my older sets (from June) was featured on a story on homepage called ‘You asked, how to wear a shift dress’. I’ve posted this set here earlier and you can find it by clicking here.
I’ve had a few other sets on homepage as well and I guess this is why so many have started to follow me lately.
I’ve also gotten a request to make sets for an online store, but I’m still not sure if I should do it or not.
I have to figure out how it works and what it’s all about first.
It does sound a lot like pressure though:)
One skirt, two looks

Peachy

Standard
I’ve completely fallen in love with this type of dress, as you may have noticed I’ve posted it before in other colors and prints.
I believe it’s called a sleeveless tie string short dress, what ever it is I love it.
This time I’m going for a peach sleeveless tie string shirt dress (Puh!).
The sheer cardigan makes this a romantic look.
 As a twist I’ve chosen menswear inspired flats.
The Michael Kors bag is out of stock but finding a white bag shouldn’t be too hard.

Less or Lux

Standard
And then we’re back home again after five awesome days at the cabin.
This set shows how you can copy Kendall Jenner’s look in this image.
I’ve included both an expensive outfit and a bargain outfit.
Personally I always go for the look for less option.
For the expensive look I’ve chosen a cotton-blend blazer overcoat from Ann Demeulemeester and leather leggings from Balenciaga. I can’t really tell whether Kendall is wearing a top or not but I would assume she is so I went for a leather bustier from Kiki de Montparnasse.
The over the knee boots are the eye-catching part of this look and I’ve chosen a suede pair from Gianvito Rossi. The bag is from 3.1 Phillip Lim.
The less bargain outfit is just as fabulous with a Pinko Black blazer and leggings from TopShop.
A bralette bra from Pieces and Latitude Femme boots. The bag is also from Pieces.
So, which look would you choose?
Less or Lux

Crop on Top

Standard
Today we’re going to our neighbouring country, Sweden, to get some shopping done.
And I’m not talking about shopping for clothes, but food, alcohol and tobacco.
All those things that are way cheaper in Sweden.
The Swedes have taken advantage of this and put up supermarkets by every border.
Grocery stores in the middle of nowhere.
It’s a common thing for Norwegians to travel to the border to do some shopping.
Especially things like tobacco and alcohol are a lot cheaper but also meet, cheese and candy among other things.
There’s a limit though to how much alcohol and tobacco you can bring from one country to the next, so we’re going along for the head count:)
I’m looking forward to the candy shopping myself.
And what better to wear for a trip like this than denim.
I love these jeans, the floral embellishment make these jeans what they are.
And they are fabulous!
Crop tops are very trendy at the moment but not everyone likes to show off their belly button, so why not wear the crop top on top of another top.(!!!)
The black tank top is out of stock but any tank top would do, even though I really like this one.
I’ve chosen an off-the-shoulder lace top just to illustrate that you can wear this item and still have both your belly and shoulders comfortably covered.
Add a pair of sneakers for a more casual look and roughen it up with a studded bucket bag.
I’m now ready for a two-hour drive, so see ya all later.
I won’t have an internet connection again later today, but tomorrow we’re going back home so see you then:)
