Sunday tip : 20% all Day and Night creams on Ellos

February 25, 2018

I follow quite a few beauty bloggers, their tips are great when it comes to some tricks ( mix a little bit of illuminator with your day cream or foundation and the result is a much more luminous face that looks younger and dewy), but I also love when they share secrets I wouldn’t otherwise know. For example , when it comes to most day creams did you know that generally the best creams follow the 20-60 rule? Always pay more than 20euro ( 200NOK) but less than 60euro ( 600NOK). Anything less is not good quality , anything more and you just pay for the brand. There can be some exceptions to that rule of course, but this little tip has saved me a lot of unnecessary costs and trouble. Not to mention a lot of doubt whether I treat my skin well or not. There are a few that have emerged as favorites over the year for me, Aesop is a staple in my routine and lately I just discovered Nuori ( all in very good range of price) , but if I have learned anything from blogging, is that I can trust my fellow beauty expert colleagues to do their job as well as I do for interior or lifestyle, and they have some favorites and staples in their routine that I have yet to try and I have been really looking forward to! This week Ellos has some of the day and night creams I have wanted to buy for 20% off, a really good deal especially if you don’t travel often . My tip however? Duty free doesn’t always carry all my favorites and I have found that a good balance between online deals and traveling is the best way to get the most value for money! And I bet some of you didn’t even know Ellos had quite the selection of beauty products right? I was surprised when I started digging for deals! Spoiler tip : Next week some perfumes will be off  as well (fingers crossed the ones I love will be on discount) and since I am a huge lover of scents I will be doing a roundabout of my favorites ,so look out for it! For now, check below my recommendations for day and night creams , but you can also find all the deals in this page as well.


:: Crème Fraiche Rich Cream 50ml by Nuxe | This day cream from Nuxe is one I have wanted to try for a long time, with ingredients like acacia, peas, green tea, sweet almond, oats, coconut and soya, you understand why! Its effects last 48hours as well, this one has gotten so good reviews!

:: Nuxuriance Ultra Replenishing Night Cream, 50 ml by Nuxe | A budget friendly night cream from Nuxe that helps restore the skin to a more vibrant stage, fills out small wrinkles and stimulates skin enzymes.

:: True Oasis Oil-Free Replenishing Gel Cream 50g by Bare Minerals | With a scent of bergamot and eucalyptus , this day cream gel has a refreshing effect on the skin and it smells amazing as well!

Dux Spaces by Lotta Agaton

February 17, 2018


One of the exhibitions I really looked forward to visiting during this years Design Week in Stockholm, was DUX Spaces by Lotta Agaton. Presented at the Museum of Performing arts in a 250 square foot lofty space, the exhibition included many of the classic DUX designs , but also their new collection designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune along with some of Lottas favorite art pieces. Lotta not only conceived and curated the exhibition, but also interpreted some of the classics with new fabrics while showing how they can be displayed in new context. I particularly loved the feel of both the beds but also the new designs, the sofa being one of my favorites. I tried to take photos of course but the light during the exhibition was not natural, and it would be a shame not to show the actual hues and beautiful materials as they should, so for todays post I am borrowing some of the press photos as shot by Erik Lefvander. I am really looking forward to seeing what Dux has for us in the future, this exhibition was one of my highlights during the Design Week!

PH House, by Norm Architects

February 12, 2018


The PH House , the newest Norm Architects project , is a minimalist villa that is found in Copenhagen, Denmark. The villa is said to have been the house of danish design icon Poul Henningsen, but was burned in a devastating fire later on. Norm Architects restored it to its current state, as seen in the photos I am sharing on the blog today.

Designed for a family of three, the historic house, now a minimalist contemporary home features beautiful high panels, parquet flooring and, as a nod to its previous famous owner, retro PH lamps hanging over the kitchen island. 

The classic elements of the house have been restored and they are now elegantly combined with contemporary details, a beautiful sawcut dark stained oak kitchen with grey ceramic stone island, fits perfectly with the herringbone flooring in juxtaposition to the plain white paneled walls. 

The house also saw some interior changes, where there used to be small divided rooms now there is a big living area with windows on all sides, allowing for ample light to fall through, creating a dynamic, semi-open space with soft transitions. For more photos scroll below, while you can find more works from Norm Architects, here .

Sundays Tip : The best looking toothpaste

February 11, 2018


Sunday’s tip : The best looking toothpaste. While in Stockholm me and Elisabeth Heier found a set of whitening premium toothpastes from Swedish brand Selahatin that smell great and come in a beautiful packaging with a great concept. The formula is vetted by the Swedish Dental Association and contains fluoride as well as antioxidants. 

There are 3 distinct formulas so far, The Escapist, The Amorist and The Hypnotist.

:: The Escapist ( as seen above), has a unique fusion of aromas that showcases Eastern and western influences with cinnamon , orange and peppermint. I’m very peculiar with aromas, usually people don’t pay so much attention to how the world smells, but I’m very sensitive to any scent. In every aspect I always end up paying much more attention to aromas, the escapist is one that I loved at first smell.

:: The Amorist, has tones of green mint, peppermint and menthol, as you can imagine, it smells very minty fresh. A little bit too intense for me but I can see it being a beloved flavor profile for many people ( Elizabeth’s favorite as well).

:: The Hypnotist, aptly named is combining tones from anise, honey and peppermint, subtly reminiscing of middle eastern aromas.

I am a little bit disappointed I didn’t pick up all three, but I discovered that the Selahatin online store sells internationally so as soon as I see I am running out I will be ordering a fresh batch. I’m really hopeful this will be my forever toothpaste, I used to hide anything that had to do with teeth cleaning, but I can safely say, no more! And speaking of not hiding my toothpaste, same goes for my bamboo toothbrush from The Humble Co. , they make the perfect duo!
