I got my first Le Labo fragrance back in 2011 and I’ve been addicted ever since. My favourites are Rose 31 and Santal 33 (the number stands for the amount of ingredients in each perfume) so when I got to pick one of the perfume oils last week in Harrods I sticked to what has become my signature fragrance and went for the Rose 31. The thing about these perfume oils is that they’re perfect for summertime where an eau de parfum can be a little harsh on the skin because of the alcohol in it – and you can actually also use it in your hair. Perfect for warmer days where you want your scent to be more subtle or to freshen up your fragrance during the day. Or to dab on your neck before going to bed…
Visit Le Labo in Harrods the next time you’re in London – or shop it here.
Fashion week is a lot of fun but it’s also hard work and late nights so when I headed to Copenhagen in the beginning of February for 3 days of fashion I took some time off in-between shows and meetings – and spoiled myself with a treatment at Complete Me. Usually I always go for the deep cleansing facials but the late nights, all the running from show to show and too many hours in front of the laptop started to show on my skin so this time I decided to go for a lifting and brightening facial with immediate effect.
After 45 minutes of deep tissue face massage (ouch), fruit acid and beautifying Skin Regimen products from Comfort Zone my skin was reborn. It was like a face lift without the botox. The moment of truth came halfway into the treatment when I was given a mirror to compare the side of my face that had just gone through the rather painful deep tissue massage with the other side that still had it to come. The difference was clear. My skin was visible lifted and suddenly the pain was the last thing on my mind.
I ended up indulging myself and my skin with a few of the Comfort Zone products used in the facial. The Duo Cleanser, which works as both a cleanser and a toner, the Juvenate-Pro Booster, which protects and smoothens the skin, the Hydra-Pro Cream Gel, which is perfect for dealing with the first signs of aging and finally the Night Renewer, which is not a night cream but a rinse-off peeling gel-mask that works renewing miracles on the skin.
You know where to find me the next time I’m in Copenhagen….

I’m super excited about the coming Proenza Schouler x MAC collection, which will hit stores in April. Definitely one of the best collaborations this year. The makeup itself is quite simple and very true to the always laid-back look of the Proenza Schouler girl but the packaging is as irresistible as anything else Proenza Schouler. I read somewhere that the ombre packaging is inspired by a previous collection – I’m guessing SS10.
