My weekly skincare routine

18 March, 2019

 

MY WEEKLY SKINCARE ROUTINE. I show you a lot of my skincare routine on my Instagram story which has been very appreciated so I thought I would share my weekly skincare routine with you here on th blog. I have bought a lot of new skincare the last couple of weeks so (I absolutely love trying new skincare products) here comes the names of all the products that I use on a weekly basis. I recently discovered a skincare brand called Dr Dennis Gross, I bought one of his serums for hydration and glow and fell in love so I bought some more products from the brand that I love and use on a daily basis.

Note: None of the products in this post have been sponsored or sent out as a press gifts, I have bought the products.

 

MY WEEKLY SKINCARE ROUTINE. Jag visar en hel del hudvårdstips på min Instagram story som har blivit ett uppskattat inslag som ni har velat se mer utav så jag tänkte tillägna ett inlägg här på bloggen kring just min hudvård och vilka produkter som jag använder i min rutin på en veckobasis. Jag älskar hudvårdsprodukter och har köpt en hel del nya produkter de senaste veckorna som jag använder på en daglig basis. Ett märke som jag fått upp ögonen för de senaste veckorna är Dr Dennis Gross. Det började med att jag köpte hans serum för hydration och glow och älskade produkten och har nu utökat mitt sortiment med fler produkter som ni kommer kunna läsa mer om här nedan.

 

Note: Inga utav dessa produkter är sponsrade eller pressutskick,  jag har köpt alla produkter själv.

 

MY SKINCARE ROUTINE 

 Cleaning my face every morning and evening has become such a holy routine for me and it makes such a huge difference to the well being of your skin. I bought this cleanser from Dermaceutic advanced cleanser a couple of weeks ago and I love it!

After cleansing my skin i spray my skin with either Dr Dennis Gross C+ Collagen mist or  Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist that I let sink in for a minute or two after applying. The mist also makes the serum that I apply afterwards go down as deep as possible in the skin layers. I currently use either Transderma Vitamin C Serum, Perricone MD PRE:EMPT Series Skin Perfecting Serum or Dr Dennis Gross Clinical concentrate radiance booster serum. While I let the serum sink in deep to my skin I apply my eye cream. I have one from Dr Dennis Gross called Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum (You can apply this eye serum even on your eyelids) and my other eye cream comes from Goldfaden MD Bright Eyes, sometimes I use both (First serum followed by the eye cream).

In terms of more rich day creams that I use before I start applying my make up I use either Dr. Barbara Sturm Face cream rich, Dr. Dennis Gross C+ Collagen Deep cream or Dermaceutic Regen Ceutic Skin Recovery cream. All these products are absolutely marvellous, my skin has never looked and felt this good as it does now which I owe to these products in combination with eating healthy and drinking a lot of water.

The top 11 coffee shops in Paris

20 February, 2019

Sharing my 11 favourite coffee spots in Paris with you

 

THE TOP 11 COFFEE SHOPS IN PARIS. If there is something that Scandianvians are very picky about, it’s our coffee, especially Swedes, we are used to high quality coffee made by baristas pretty much wherever we go in Stockholm, the standard is very high. So it can be a bit of a contrast when you leave the borders of Sweden and order a cappuccino, the espresso tastes more like water than espresso, the cappuccino doesn’t have microfoam but a weird kind of bathtub looking foam that is bouncy and let’s not forget to talk about the cocoa powder that many countries seem to love to put on top of their cappuccino which only destroys the taste of the coffee bean.

To eliminate the risk of ending up ordering a really bad tasting coffee it’s even more important to do your research, especially in a city like Paris. The Parisian’s standard of coffee is not as high as the Swedish standard so you truly need to do your research to find the really good spots where the cappuccinos come with microfoam and doesn’t taste like dirty water with cocoa powder on top. I take my cappuccinos very seriously so whenever we are in Paris and I’m craving a creamy capp I have a list on my iPhone with coffee shops in Paris that I trust and love that they will deliver a creamy capp and a juicy banana bread to go with that. Here comes a list of 11 of my favourite coffee shops in Paris that you can feel safe going to if you are in the mood for a delicious coffee experience.

Brunch spot in Paris: Cafe St Regis

18 February, 2019

 

BRUNCH SPOT IN PARIS: CAFE ST REGIS. One of my favourite areas in Paris is Ile Saint Louis, a picturesque little island located in the heart of Paris, surrounded by water and beautiful views over the neighbouring areas. When I lived in Paris back in 2013 I lived in St Germain des Pres, one of the cosiest areas of Paris in my opinion The area is filled with so many neat bistros, art galleries, antique shops, restaurants and wonderful shopping. They offer everything from the big international high end brands to smaller boutiques offering a wide selection of brands, ranging from high to low.

Something that Johan and I always used to do during the weekends when he came to visit me in Paris was that we used to take a walk along La Seine from St Germain des Pres to Ile Saint Louis to eat brunch at Cafe St Regis. The venue is bright and airy, filled with big windows letting through the light, allowing you to look out on the people passing by, listen to the sound of the street musicians playing the piano on the bridge, this little island is filled with so much life. The ambiance inside of Cafe St Regis is always buzzing, filled with laughter and people talking, it’s a popular place, especially during the weekend when they serve their mouth watering brunch (Their french toast is not to be missed) so make sure to come here in time before the queue has started to take form. If you are not that in to french toast I can also recommend you to try any of their egg dishes which they are very known for.

Celebrating our 6 month engagement

12 February, 2019

 

CELEBRATING OUR 6 MONTH ENGAGAEMENT. Johan and I were recently in London looking at apartments and during that week we also celebrated 6 months as engaged which we celebrated with some champagne in our hotel room before we went out to eat dinner at a lovely Italian restaurant in Belgravia. I wore a new dress that I recently bought from Ida Sjöstedt that I really love, I’m thinking about buying it in another color as well, I think it’s such a fun statement dress.

I have gotten quite a few questions regarding my engagement ring that I thought I would answer in a post here on le blog. We created my engagement ring at our jeweller Strömdahls, all my jewellery come from them. The sapphire is a 4 carat Ceylon sapphire surrounded by 1,3 carat of diamonds, then I also have the diamond eternity ring that Johan proposed with on Sardegna. I’m turning 30 this May and for my birthday I’m wishing for either a diamond/sapphire bracelet that will go very nicely together with my tennis bracelet or a necklace with a sapphire and diamond pendant, like my ring but slightly smaller, perhaps 2-2,5 carats. A piece that I can wear throughout my life, always remembering my 30th birthday.

 

CELEBRATING OUR 6 MONTH ENGAGEMENT. Jag och Johan befann oss nyligen i London för att leta lägenhet och i samband med detta så firade vi även 6 månader som förlovade vilket vi firade med lite champagne på hotellrummet följt utav middag på en underbar italiensk restaurang i Belgravia. På mig så hade jag min nya klänning från Ida Sjöstedt som jag köpte här om veckan, älskar modellen och funderar på att köpa den även i en annan färg, såg att den även fanns i beige samt svart.

Jag har fått många frågor kring min förlovningsring, vi gjorde ringen hos vår juvelerare Strömdahls, alla mina smycken komma från dom. Älskar att dom enbart jobbar med högsta kvalité och allt dom skapar är ett absolut hantverk samt att dom är ledande i Norden på just safirer, smycken som kommer kunna gå i generationer. Safiren är en 4 carat Ceylon safir omringad utav 1,3 carat diamanter och ringen är gjord i platinum. Valde att göra båda ringarna i just platinum då det är den mest hållbara metallen. Fyller 30 år nu den 12 Maj och det enda jag önskar mig är antingen ett diamant/safirarmband som jag kan bära i kombination med mitt tennisarmband eller så funderar jag på ett halsband med en safir omringad utav diamanter, som min ring fast lite mindre, runt 2-2,5 carat. Ett smycke man kan bära med sig för resten av livet, ett himla fint 30 års minne.

Starting the new year in Paris

23 January, 2019

Photographer: Mon amour

 

STARTING THE NEW YEAR IN PARIS. It felt absolutely wonderful to start the new year with a celebratory weekend in Paris with my love. We recently celebrated 6 years together so we decided to book a romantic weekend to Paris to celebrate. We checked in to one of our favourite boutique hotels in Paris, le Grand Hotel du Palais Royal, which is a marvellous hotel located in the heart of the 1st arrondissement, just next to Palais Royal. This area of Paris is so charming and has some of the best restaurants in the city, I can give you a few of my best tips in a coming post if that would be of interest.

The shopping in Paris is as great as always and I have bought many new pieces for my closet during this trip, one of the pieces is the bag from Mulberry that I’m wearing in this post. I fell in love with the model and its color, it truly is the perfect everyday bag.

 

STARTING THE NEW YEAR IN PARIS. Det kändes helt underbart att starta 2019 med en romantisk get away till Paris. Jag och Johan firade nyligen 6 år tillsammans och vi valde att fira det i staden som vi båda älskar så mycket, le Paree! Jag kommer ihåg när jag bodde i Paris under våren 2013 och Johan kom och hälsade på mig 1-2 veckor varje månad, jag älskade min lilla lägenhet på Rue Jacob i St Germain des Prés och alla underbara minnen vi har från den tiden, det kändes verkligen underbart att fira vårt 6 års jubileum i just denna stad.

Vi checkade in på ett utav mina favorit boutique hotell Grand Hotel du Palais Royal, lokaliserat precis invid le Palais Royal vilket är en helt underbar del utav Paris, i denna delen så absolut kryllar det med några av Paris absolut bästa restauranger. Kan tipsa er om några utav mina favoritrestauranger i området i ett kommande inlägg. I detta inlägg så tänkte jag nämligen bjuda på en outfit, bär min nya väska från Mulberry som jag precis köpt, absolut älskar modellen samt färgen, den perfekta vardagsväskan!
