What a day! I haven’t been outside my flat – not even for 5 minutes and I feel like the most horrible dog mommy ever (thank god we’ve got a garden). The reason? LUELLE, which will (hopefully) re-launch tomorrow! I’ll let you know as soon as we’re live so stay tuned!
Yesterday, when I still thought I had plenty of time to finish things before the launch, I put on my finest (and most green) ensemble and paired the look with casual slip-ons to make it work for everyday – or in this case a relaxed Sunday.
I’ve been looking for some luxe track pants in this exact blue color for some time now, so you can probably imagine my excitement when I found this pair in Wishbone’s pop up store the other day. I actually wasn’t familiar with the brand until I walked into the store but they’ve got lots of great (and affordable) pieces – all with a perfectly relaxed feeling and simple cuts. I ended up getting the white blouse too – because that’s what happens when you shop for pants in a dress and need to see what the pants will look like with a nice top.
If you’re in London you should definitely pay the pop-up shop on 33 Brompton Road (close to Harrods) a visit – and make sure to do it before the end of July. And if you’re not around London take a look at Wishbone.co.uk. I think I need this striped dress.
I know how to apply a foundation to make my skin look (almost) flawless, I know how to emphasise my cheekbones with a little help from a blush and I know which mascaras work for me and which don’t, but when it comes to eye shadow and liners I feel lost. I’ve watched countless tutorials and every time I’m on a shoot I pay extra attention to what the make-up artist is doing when it comes to my eyes. And yet I still don’t master a smoky eye. Please tell me I’m not the only one struggling with eye shadows and liners?
However, I’m not giving up, so last week I added a couple of Tromborg products to my beauty bag – and so far I’m super happy with the result. The creamy colours in Eye Grease, which btw are perfect for a sunkissed skin, blend easily into each other and I love the natural looking result. Before I apply the colour I dap a little powder on my eyelids for a longer-lasting result and then use the brushes for better control.
As much as I love Eye Grease, my ultimate favorite eyeshadow product is the Natural Active Eye Power in the color Light Brown. It is as good as foolproof and I just started using it on a daily basis on the eyelids and below the lower lashes. It’s barely-there but the kind of product that makes a huge difference to your makeup.
A classic meets a classic meets another classic. I am of course talking about the boyfriend jeans, the striped top and the black heels – all staple pieces in my wardrobe and maybe in yours too? When wearing boyfriend jeans I love adding just a hint of colour – it makes the outfit stand out but also adds something feminine to it.
I’m super busy with work these days but what’s more exciting is that we are now only days from launching Luelle! I hope you’ve signed up for the newsletter already – and if not, make sure to do it.
Earlier this year Rudolph Care launched its new sun collection and since I usually love everything coming from the organic skin care label I was really excited to try the products – and especially the face creams available in spf 15, 30 and 50. Usually I would use spf 30 for everyday and spf 50 when on vacation but since I’m pregnant and therefore more prone to pigmentation spots I decided to stick to the spf 50. Does it do the trick? Yes, and I can honestly say that these are the best sun products I’ve ever tried. The Sun Face Cream Spf 50 doesn’t get my skin to break out and it doesn’t make it greasy. Plus it works perfectly over a moisturizer or under a foundation.
Also in my bag I always carry the Sun Stick Spf 50 (not pictured here), which I apply throughout the day on my forehead and above the lips to avoid pigmentation spots.
The Sun Body Oil Spf 30 is another favorite of mine. Not only does it make sure that I don’t get burned when enjoying the sun, it also really makes the skin glow and never greasy, which is quite important when you’re at the beach or wearing your favorite dress.
