On my summer holiday I tried these cool temporary tattoos from The Glam Tattoo Company, you can find them at Sephora. I absolutely love gold and silver shades on tanned skin. They were easy to put on and last between 2-7 days, depending on where they are located and whether you use oil based products.
They spice up the summer wardrobe, and I ‘ll definitely be wearing some during fashion week .
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:
