A small little nice goodie bag I got for myself the other day - Oils of Life Serum and Oils of Life Day Cream. These oils contains 3 different kinds of seed oils around the world: Black Cumin seed oil from Egypt, Camellia seed oil from China and Rosehip seed oil from Chile. This oil is created to intensely revitalise skin, revive radiance and visibly reduce signs of ageing.


BLACK CUMIN SEED: When ancient Egyptian kings, European queens, religious prophets and modern scientist come together on an issue, it’s probably worth hearing out. Although today we have more access to information than ever before, we still have a lot to learn from history. From Hippocrates and Cleopatra, to King Tut and the civilizations that followed, a strange commonality they shared was the value they placed on a certain herb.

These ingredients of black seed oil (black cumin is one of them) enable it to act as a multipurpose natural remedy for just about anything and everything. Take a look at some of it’s properties: anti-bacterial, anti-oxidant, anti-fungal, anti-cancer, anti-viral, anti-histamine etc. Black seeds come from the Nigella Sativa flower, and are grown worldwide today. It’s origins are from North Africa, Mediterranean/Europe, and Asia, and have since spread far throughout the globe and is regarded as one of the most effective natural remedies

CAMELLIA SEED: The winter-blooming flower was harvested for centuries by women famed for their glowing skin and long, lustrous hair. The geisha adopted their secret, using the oil to remove their iconic stage makeup and nourish their skin.

Camellia oil is one of the most treasured secrets of the geisha. The flower itself symbolizes feminine beauty, while oil from the seeds acts as a feather-light, deeply nourishing moisturizer. Camellia oil, or tsubaki oil, is rich in oleic acid and vitamins A, B, D and E as well as nourishing Omega 3, 6 and 9. The molecular weight of the oil is an almost identical match for skin, allowing it to absorb quickly and thoroughly.

ROSEHIP SEED OIL: Rosehip oil is harvested from the seeds of rose bushes predominately grown in Chile, and is full of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that are known to correct dark spots and hydrate dry, itchy skin, all while reducing scars and fine lines. It also helps with eczema and acne scarring. The oil boosts the immune system with its great source of vitamin C and anti-aging. It quickly absorbs into the skin, replenishing moisture and creating a protective barrier on the skin to help prevent dehydration



Some interesting facts about the seeds, which I hope you enjoyed to read. There was a lot of facts that I didn't know myself, which I enjoyed to research about.

What do you think?

I am so happy with my purchase today. I am curious for the vitamin E serum and Seaweed overnight gel how they works. However, The vitamin C Day cream is the bomb!

Payday! I took the opportunity to buy some goodies for my skin. Best part, all of these are Vegan! :D One product that I am extra excited about is the Drops of Youth Peeler. The product has a transforming gel-to-peel technology which is absolutely insane! The drops of Youth Liquid Peel exfoliates and gently peels off impurities from your skin, lifting dead skin cells and residuals. This revolutionary gel-to-peel leaves skin clean and purified from the day’s pollutants. Continued use will leave a fresh, smoother and more luminous youthful-looking skin. It will be available in Sweden on Monday the 20th of January! :)

I will make a skincare routine video soon, so stay tune! :)

| FOREST POSTER | HERE

Good morning peeps. In collaboration with iSecrets.se I have an amazing opportunity for you guys.
They have lots of nice small gadgets all from electronics to bags.

A few of my favorite things are their posters they got, especially the ones that's nature inspired with a nice text under it. Here is two of them that I prefer the most and that I got myself :)

| EARTH POSTER| HERE

Or why not a new phone case? They got different kinds of motives. Myself I got the one in the middle. I don't know why but I just love motives taken of the nature. I find it very peaceful :) They have lots of different kids of motives for many different smartphones. Myself got a Huawei, and when I got it in the UK they didn't have a phone case for it. So I am really happy about this one. On the inside they got 3 different pockets for your cards as well, which is really handy.

| Pokemon Powerbank | HERE & | Powerbank | HERE

Another thing that I got, which could be a nice christmas present to give to all the Pokemon Go fans. a Powerbank for your smartphone when you are running low of battery (as the App eats your battery like crazy). The Powerbank is quite large, it fits perfectly in your palm (A slightly bigger size than a tennis ball).

I had the pleasure to speak to a lovely and talented girl called Amy ​today. She studied fashion design just like me, however, she went to London College of Fashion... which I think is really cool. I've thought of wanting to do an MA there. But I do not have the funds for that. She has started her own fashion label called "Pea Street"/ A luxury ports brand. Its very colorful and cute! I Just love it... so I thought it simply had to be mentioned.

Check it out :)

Yesterday I purchased these two pretty things. To the left: Highlighter - Mother of Pearl. To the right: Blush - Good Girl. The highlighter is really pretty! It reflects the highlight and define the skin to create a beautiful glow.
I haven't tried the Blush yet, but its a very nice bright pink color which is really nice for the spring/summer.

This is one of my favorite things I have in our new home. Sort of luxurious for me and I just love having a nice cup of coffee in the morning. I found this beauty for a couple of months ago and I simply saved in to my favorites. Soon as Black Friday hit in, the price of it went down to almost 50%. So, how could I say no to that? One of the best things I ever bought. It also got a milk steamer. How awesome is that?! Organic grounded coffee from Peru, brown sugar and soya milk- yum! xx

I got myself a pair of make up brushes the other day from TkMaxx. No, I haven't owned any make up brushes before so these are the first ones I have ever gotten (I used to use my fingers when I applied foundation and blush). I got myself these pretty brushes called So eco. What I love about these its because they are sustainable and, of course, that they do make my make up look pretty good as well, haha :) I am so happy with this purchase. xx

Idag började jag klockan 7 på morgonen. Vi gjorde "Stocktake".. vilket tog lite längre än vad det skulle ha gjort. Jag fick stanna lite längre (klagar inte, mer cash i fickan, hehe). Sedan for jag till Primark för att köpa ett par skor, mina andra flats har gått sönder efter en konstant användning i x antal månader. De var för 30 spänn så inte så förvånad. Funderade på att köra silvertejp under sulan... men det hade nog sätt dumt ut, haha. Så istället för att bara köpa ett par skor så kom jag ut med lite fler saker än vad jag hade tänkt mig... Klänningen från TOPSHOP köpte jag får någon dag sedan på rean.

Väska: £8 Fickspegel: £50p Strumpor: £2.50 Skor: £5.50 Klänning: £10

***************

I started work at 7 this morning. We had stocktake... and it took a little bit longer than expected. I had the opportunity to stay a bit longer (not complaining, more cash in the pocket, haha). After that I went to Primark to buy some new shoes, my other flats fell apart after a several months of constant use. They were for £3 so what do you expect? I was thinking of using duck tape under the sole but that would probably look hideous, haha! So instead of just buying one pair of shoes I ended up coming home with a little bit more than expected. The dress from TOPSHOP was bought a couple of days ago from the sale.

Bag: £8 Pocket mirror: £50p Socks: £2.50 Shoes: £5.50 Dress: £10

With the money I had left on my topshop credit card, I purchased this beautiful Elephant necklace for £5 (£4.5 with the discount). I love animals. Sometimes I wonder why I shouldn't start my own animal reservation. Taking care of animals that's been miss treated and endangered. One of the things that pisses me off the most are the disgusting human beings who kill animals for their pelts, tusks etc as a trophy or to the black market.

Heartbreaking.

God kväll/natt?
Min dag har varit väldigt bra! :) Jag spenderade min dag inne i Windsor/Eton tillsammans med min vän Ishaé efter hon hade slutat jobba. Efter hon hade fått köpt ett par strumpbyxor på HM for vi till Eton för att fota på mitt 4de projekt. Temat denna gången vart "mat". Så jag gjorde en topp helt enkelt utav godis, haha. Resultatet kan ni se ovan. Helt okej ändå, eller vad tycker ni? :)
Jag sitter nu och redigerar en hel fler bilder från fotograferingen. Jag undrar vad för kritik jag kommer få på Onsdag! :) Exalterad! :)
