After all the recent hype I decided to give the sponges from The Konjac Sponge Co. a try – and it didn’t take me long to get addicted to the calming, softening and mild exfoliation effect the sponges offer the skin. For both face and body I went for the French Pink Clay sponges, which are perfect to refresh a sensitive skin as the clay repairs and improves circulation. You won’t see the changes to your skin overnight, but give it a few weeks and those annoying clogged pores will definitely improve making your skin appear more even and fresh faced.
It’s actually not necessary to use any cleansing products with the sponges but I prefer to – and after all adding some will only make the sponges work deeper. I was recently introduced to Mádara and have been using the Purifying Foam am and pm for the past few weeks now and I love it for being mild, effective, and organic. I massage it into damp skin before I bring the sponge into action and lastly rinse with warm water.
Make sure to add LUELLE to you daily reading list. From inspiring wardrobes to lots of shopping and beauty stories, I’m sure you’ll love it! One of my favorite LUELLE features is the Closet Confidential, where we get to look into the stylish wardrobes belonging to some of the most inspiring women out there.
Last month we visited Cash & Rocket founder, Julie Brangstrup (hello Chanel, Stella McCartney and Hermes) and Lauren Stevenson, who not only just launched her own venture, Lauren Stevenson Communication, but also has one of the most impressive collections of Valentino shoes I’ve seen so far. The month before, blogger and fashion writer, Lise Grendene showed us her to-die-for wardrobe and today on LUELLE you can see sneak into the closet of Nicola McClafferty, founder of Covetique – the number one shopping destination for pre-owned designer clothing and shoes.
It all starts HERE.
Wednesday night I went to a pre-shopping event for the new H&M Studio Collection and as you know (from this post) I had my eyes on quite a few pieces. I love the collection and it could have ended up in a quite expensive affair, but I was saved by the baby bump as it turned out to be very few pieces that I could actually fit into. On the top of my wish list I had the suede jacket, which I’ve been waiting for since the show back in March and it will keep me warm till the day I can finally afford the real deal from Acne (or Bruuns Bazaar).
Did you get the pieces you wanted from the collection?
Yesterday Lykke Li’s collection for & Other Stories hit the stores (and online) – and seriously, what’s not to love? It’s sleek, simple and effortless and I’m even considering buying into the collection knowing that I won’t fit into any of the pieces at the moment. Well, besides from the shoes…
Go check out the collection over at LUELLE (if you like this, you’ll love everything)
Just in case you haven’t heard of the Danish label Rodtnes, I’ll introduce you. Rodtnes was started back in 2012 by architect Mette Rødtnes and is the result of a passion for bags – and a search for the perfect workbag (if you can’t find it, make it yourself). I love the simple and classic look of a Rodtnes bags and this new tote is a new timeless staple in my wardrobe with its smoke grey colour and black handle. Not to mention the buttersoft leather.
You know those pieces that you end of living in… This Tibi sweatshirt is one of them. It has got the most amazing cut-outs and works beautifully with everything from skirts and shorts to jeans and culottes. Can’t wait to pair it with these 3.1 Phillip Lim post-pregnancy…

Because this is the season where we’ll all need a pair of flatform Oxfords (thanks to Stella McCartney). Take your cue from the British designer and team them with, erm, everything.
