skincare

Having spent almost 6 weeks in +30°C humid weather and then to return home to -5°C and strong icy winds has been quite harsh on my skin. My skin is craving moisture, fluid and protection from chilly winds and dry air- Luckily ACOx27s new protecting skincare range came just in time- an extra plus for the SPF - although we arenx27t seeing too much sunlight in this part of the world for the moment.

Lashes

Since about a month and a half back Ix27ve started using x-lash and I have to say WOW! The other day someone even thought I had a lash extension done. Also new in my bathroom is Elisabeth Mottix27s volume mascara- key word volume! Really one of the best Ix27ve tried in recent years. Tumnagel

exit

With a new hair cut and color comes new haircare products. Exit haircare just moved into my bathroom. So far Ix27ve only tried the shampoo, conditioner and hairmask once (you guys know how seldom I wash my hair) but I must say so far so good, and two thumbs up for the nice packaging, minimalist, white and clean- looks great placed next to my bathtub.

creative headz

Last week I went to my new hairdresser for the second time and let her work her magic! Ix27m quite picky about my hair and hardly ever have it dyed or cut- but I let Nathalie decide what to do. We put in a darker color in the roots- ridding my hair of those red and light tones, and cut up and layered the front which frame my face. I have quite frizzy hair naturally - you should see me in a humid climate- and have thought about getting a brazilian blowout for years (but have read such mixed reviews and the cost has scared me of a bit considering the lenght and thickness of my hair it would cost a small fortune or rather a new bag). Nathalie introduced me to Kerastasé x27s fusio dose- a deep nutrition treatment which will rid my hair of its dryness, lack of gloss and frizziness- Wex27re going do a dosage every other 4-6 weeks, and my hair already feels way softer and healthier but itx27s going to be interesting to see if it holds up after a couple of washes at home. So far Ix27m loving this Jaclyn Smith / Charlie´s Angels look! Tumnagel

Lights, camera, action!

Today I stepped a little outside my comfort zone and in front of the camera. Reversed roles! Amazing make up artist Linda made me up pretty! The result of todayx27s shoot I may share with you guys a little in a couple of months! Now Saturday pizza, perhaps a glass of wine, and then early bed time! Tomorrow I start a new tv production so early call time! Xx Tumnagel

forever

If youx27re going to invest in one new beauty product this spring- let me tell you this is it. I am completely obsessed with this CC cream from YSL, no foundation or powder needed, it covers all your blemishes, dark spots, and helps dull looking skin be vibrant. This is my new best friend each morning! Tumnagel

fake it till you make it

My secret to perfectly bronzed skin to welcome the spring, yes I admit I am faking it, but itx27s so good that people actually think the tan Ix27m carrying is from my last trip to Bangkok (which didnx27t offer a single day at the pool). St Tropez new sensitive bronzing leaves no streaks, no orange patches and blends in so well. Ix27m hooked! Tumnagel

cloud 9

As most of you probably know I have extremely thick, wavy, voluminous hair- and you know the grass is always greener on the other side. I hate washing my hair as drying and taming it is such a hassle- it can take me up to 2 hours with a blow dryer to get control over my mane. But now finally I have found the perfect flat iron! I didnx27t think it was possible to get my hair straight in such a short amount of time. Seriously within 15 minutes my locks are straight! The people who founded ghd are behind Cloud 9. The C9 touch which I have, heats up instantly and have you not used it within 30 seconds it automatically turn off (!) no more running back to the apartement to check that you turned it off- which I always do with all my utilites- hello OCD. It sounds so cliche to say but my life just got a whole lot easier when it comes to my hair rutines- and to not mention the money Ix27ll be saving not going to the hairdressers for a blow out that lasts 3-4 days.

solaire

My favorite protection right now? Biotherms Lait Solaire SPF 15, (after 5 weeks away, plenty of sun, and prepping with SPF 30-50 + the first couple of weeks), it blends into the skin easily (very important I think), hydrates, doesnx27t stick, and smells so good! Recommend it if youx27re looking at what sunscreen to bring on your upcoming vacation! Tumnagel

tiki tiki tanga

Newly polished nails in the shade x27Tiki Tiki Tangax27. I get shellack or gelish done on my nails since about a year back and my nails have never been longer or prettier, I have extremely brittle nails so would never be able to grow this lenght with a normal manicure. Someone once told me that your hands are your businesscard- meaning its important to have well groomed and manicured nails when greeting or shaking someones hand, and Ix27ve had to say i agree.

protect your skin

1. Clarins sun oil 2. ACO extra light face suncream 3. Le Tan Coconut oil 4. Hawaiian Tropic Protective Sun Lotion 5. ACO Hydrating sun screen SPF15 6. Geurlain beauty BB Beauty Booster SPF 30 7. Decleor Solaire Tan Activator I donx27t think Ix27ve ever brought so many sunscreen products or been so good at protecting my skin as on this trip. Itx27s such a common notion to think that with sunscreen you donx27t get as tanned or not at all (something I seriously believed for years.) Now this is obviously not true, and wearing good UV protection will ofcourse give you just as good of a lasting tan and healthy glowing skin, and most importantely protect you from the harms of UV rays that cause cancer. Above are a few of the products Ix27ve brought along, I love ACO (the swedish pharmacyx27s own range) especially since it is perfume free and extremely light on the skin. Tumnagel

baby pink

There is something about tanned skin and perfectly manicured baby pink/nude nails. Thatx27s why i opted for this shade the other they when i got a fresh set of Shellack nails done. Perfect for the next couple of weeks spent on islands and beaches in the Philippines. Tumnagel

protection

In a little less than two weeks Ix27m heading to the beach. Ix27ve been longing for this vacay for sooooo long considering Ix27ve worked non stop this year and havenx27t had time off since January. Ix27ve stocked up on sun products- I used to be horrible at protecting my skin, but now that Ix27m getting older (a little wiser;-) ) and aware of the effects the sun has on my skin, Ix27ve invested in plenty of products. Getting a tan doesnx27t have to mean ending up with wrinkled skin! Stay tuned for an account on which products I consider best, protect the longest, hydrate and are the most water resistant. Tumnagel

nectar lace

A new favorite in my make up bag is this 3-1 pallette of contour/bronzer, blush and highlighter from Lancôme in the shade x27Nectar Lacex27. The perfect color for my grey and winter dull face- and I like that it has all three features in the same palette- a light brown contour, a perfect coral pink blush (ix27d say the color on the photo is quite off- it is not as red as it looks) and a light gold highlighter that doesnx27t have a bunch of glitter in it (hate that!). You can find it here. Bloglovin Tumnagel

in my bathroom

Marc Anthonyx27s shampoo & conditioner with argan oil. Perfect for my winter dry hair and split ends which Ix27m determined not to cut before my 6 week vacation in the sun! There is something about the sea, sand and sun- which requires long tousled surfer hair. Tumnagel

white woods

Ix27ve been a devotee of Cleanx27s Shower Fresh and Rain for years, (the cotton & laundry scents were never really my cup of tea), but now my latest addition is their latest scent White Woods. With hints of bergamont, orchid, sandalwood and musk- its rich and luxurious. A perfect fall/winter fragrance. Tumnagel

2 x skincare

Two new skincare favorites. The Glam Glow mud mask/scrub is fantastic- it stings a little when applying it, but the glow it gives your skin after 15 minutes is amazing. A new favorite of mine and apparently most of Hollywood! And the bio oil is the perfect moisture source for my skin this time of year. I use it on everything from my legs to my belly. Tumnagel

face

Ix27m terrible when it comes to make up. I love to test new products but to be honest ix27m a disgrace when it comes to blending, smudging, mixing and shadowing. Thatx27s why my make up routine is pretty much standard- either nothing but blush, mascara and my favorite nude lipgloss or on a better day/night foundation and a black eyeliner. However now that Ix27m working pretty much between 13-15 hour day tv productions- my skin is not at its best- puffy eyes, dark lines, and fatigued skin is starting to show. So today I invested in concelear and top of the line durability (according to the sales lady) foundation and the ultimate tool to mix and blend it all together. Hopefully this will leave me looking just as fresh at 8 am when I arrive in the studio as by midnight when Ix27m finally hailing a cab home. Clinique All About Eyes concealer, Sephora Foundation n. 25 and Sephora foundation brush. Tumnagel

story

On tuesday I flew down to Copenhagen for a presentation of the latest collection by Danish jewelry brand STORY by Kranz & Zeigler. As you can see the presentation was something extra, styled on live models in a magnificent hotel suite, smack down in the center of Tivoli (an amusement park). Live models styled á la 60x27s (very Mad Men- which we of course still love) hanging out in every room of the Suite, from the bathtub to the bedroom and in the office. Behind the amazing presentation and styling was the ever so cool couple from DANSK magazine ( Just check out the amazing cover of their September issue!). A fantastic 24 hours in a gorgeous city with fun, clever and very stylish colleagues- and a whole bunch of laughs- Thank you to Kranz & Zeigler & Star Studio for a great trip. Tumnagel

birch

A new favorite in my bathroom cabinet is this birch and cucumber oil from Björk & Berries which is fantastic for hydrating my skin- especially now during the summer where I actually got some color on my legs! I love anything with birch- that smell just reminds me of swedish summers and the forest. Tumnagel

le office

Im so greatful that I have an office/studio right in the smack center of town where i can store all my clothes, shoes, accessoaries and more. I dont know what Ix27d done if I didnx27t have this space. After almost 4 years of freelancing as a stylist I can say Ix27ve built up quite a closet/storage. Next plan is to build clothing hangers down from the roof so I can hang each item nicely and orderly. Organization is key! Now back to work- yes on a friday- a lot happening now- starting this fall youx27ll be seeing me on TV. Crazy! Happy Weekend! Tumnagel

I got a new Balenciaga the other day. A great investment since Ix27ve used my Part time in turquoise to shreds. This time i opted for a classic city one in the shade gris tarmac, a great alternative to black since it just as well works with everything and fits my daily needs like my macbook air, organizer, olympus camera and make up bag. I got it at Nathalie Schuterman and youx27ll find it here. Tumnagel

around the corner

Ix27ve had the perfect weekend thus far. Today I took the first trip out in our boat to our country home in the Archipelago, always something magical about that, seeing the house after the harsh winter, embracing spring. Fixed with the garden, the ponds & waterfall and burned a bonfire with all the old autumn leaves and branches that the winter winds and storms have broken. Summer please come quick now- this spring has really been delayed. Now a well deserved bath! Tumnagel

miniature

Three favorites in my beauty bag that are perfect in size for short weekend getaways with only handluggage. Scrub & Beauty flash balm from Clarins that ix27ve used on and off for years. I love that the scrub is quite grainey, so you can feel that it actually works and removes dirt and impurities. New in my bag is this serum from Transderma-R, Ix27ve only used it for about ten days and i must say wow! I can see a difference in my skin- itx27s brighter, smoother and my blemishes are less visible (I had chicken pox when I was 16 (!),- so I have some scars and blemishes in my skin since then). My make up bag is from Svenskt Tenn- elephants of course;-) Tumnagel
