The other day I visited Munthe’s showroom. I was looking at the upcoming autumn and winter collection, which is full of beautiful prints and delicious qualities. The colors are kept in powder pink, emerald green, grey and black. Prints of Japanese flowers in metallic shades, so fab! One of my faves are a maxi dress in the fabric that you can just make out the picture 3, nude with gold threads.
I was also lucky to get a sneak peek of the upcoming SS16 collection, which will be presented this fashion week. There are some really beautiful styles there too! I’ve always been keen on Munthe’s clothes, and it just gets nicer and nicer, modern boho with a urban twist.
Hello everyone . I’m back from 14 days holiday in Crete! It was SO fantastic, I’m filled with energy and sunshine. I have been to Greece a handful of times, love it! Some years we have island-hopped, sometimes travled Crete’s coasts, this year we chose to go to one of our favorite cities, Plakias. Here we know two families, that each rent out lovely rooms, overlooking the sea, with a small kitchen and all.
We also got talk with some of the locals about the situation which Greece is in, they are of course concerned, on the other hand you couldn’t feel it much as a tourist in Crete and the islands, compared to Athens, here we could easily withdraw money in the bank machines and use our credit cards, we had however withdrawn some extra cash just in case. Now it seems that there is a solution in the making, I really hope that the outcome will be a sustainable future for Greece.
We relaxed and enjoyed the sunshine and sea blue waves! Maybe you have already seen some of the pictures on instagram and snapchat (emiliedelance). We swum, tanned, was on adventures in the rocks, ate a lot of watermelon, Greek salad and grilled fish, yummy .
While we were on vacation, a lot of wonderful happend for our company glow:repeat, I am really looking forward to work and some new exciting clients. I hope you had a wonderful summer so far! And hopefully there will also be more sunshiny days in DK.
Peonies are just beautiful! Both when they are blossoming, but also while they are still closed. I love to take pictures with them and have recently bought a stack of Pantone cards on Amazon, where there is a color that is dedicated to the pretty flower, Pantone 15-1816 Peony.
These cute nail polishes are from ByK, which not so long ago, have had their lacquers Allergy Certified. They are the first nail polish brand in the world that has achieved the allergy certification. Primarily because the lacquers contain no perfumes, formaldehyde or other known allergens.
Estelle & Thild has quickly become one of my favorite brands in the bathroom. The new body care series comes in 4 different scents. I have tried Waterlily and it’s just so lovely! A gentle and fresh scent of flowers. The Body Scrub melts on the skin and exfoliate the entire body. After the bath, it’s time for Body Lotion, if you want even more moisture, it also available as Body Butter. I change a little between the two, depending on how dry my skin feels. If you’re looking for a delicious organic body care series, then I think you will enjoy this one. Next time I would like to try Sparkling Citrus Bloom, I love citrus scents too. Find the new series here.
I get many questions about my hair and how I do my curls. By nature, I have curls and frizzy hair that require a lot of moisture and care. My own curls are a little samller, but I love big bouncy curls, therefore I digging the ghd’s creative curl wand! It is super easy to use and is ready to use within 10 seconds. I always use Heat Protection before I begin to style my hair. It smells so good and is suitable for all hair types.
I put my hair in a few sections, so I can more easily manageable how far I’ve come and get around all my hair.
Then it’s just game on and get curling. Start with a small section at a time and twist it around the wand from the scalp and down. There is a rubberized tip that does not get hot, here you can hold it with your fingers. Depending on how thick and receptive your hair is, hold the curl between 10 to 20 seconds. Gently twist the hair out of the bar and let the curl cool down. Resist the urge to comb out the curl. Allow it to cool completely before touching it. That way you maintain the elasticity.
Then just do the next section.
Once you have curled all the hair, just wait 5 min. till it’s all cooled down. Since I have thick hair, I enjoy collecting my curls with some hair cream. I have found that mixing ghd Smooth & Finish Serum and Straight & Tame Cream gives a good result in my hair. A pump of each, which I heat and mix in my hands, then I hug it into my tips while I at the same time separate the curls, so they are not as “pretty”.
Ta daa here’s your fab curls! And it takes no more than 15-20 minutes. Find what I used right here:
