Is the Ambient Lighting Palette by Hourglass really worth the hype and the price tag? That is a question that I have been asking myself for several years now. I have to admit, that even though I have been craving this beauty for some time, I always avoided clicking it home. But since Hourglass is now @ Sephora in America, I couldn’t help it when I swatched these beautiful powders while visiting Los Angeles. They totally spellbounded me even though this is heartbreakingly expensive and I may or may not have whipped a tear together with my abused credit card.

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette is a trio of soft and finely-milled powders, that are made to create a nice dimension to the face, so you, instead of looking flat, actually look more natural. I don’t know how they’ve done it, but it works.

Dim Light is a neutral beige, and is the only shimmer-free powder in this palette. I like to use this all over my face and I’ve found that It sets my foundation really nicely and gives me this beautiful skin-like sheen. I never used to be a face powder kind of girl, but this powder is beautifully light and sets the base to perfection.

Incandescent Light is probably my favourite. It is a beautiful highlighter with a slight hint of a pale pink and it contains very fine shimmer particles, which are absolutely gorgeous. Even though it has a beautiful glitter sheen, it is not too chunky or intense. When the sun hits your face, you will sparkle like a sophisticated vampire from twilight. This shade is also exclusive to his palette!

Radiant Light is a golden beige which also has shimmer particles but no where as intense as Incandescent light. This is absolutely perfect to use as a natural bronzer, and will give you a beautiful sunkissed look. It sort of reminds me of a less intense version of Glo Minerals Dust 24k Highlighter (read here).

So my over all thoughts – I am happy with my purchase, and yes, I am a fan. There is for sure nothing like the Hourglass Ambient Lightning Palette out there and it truly does work like magic. Is it worth the money? Heck Yeah. This palette is awesome- and as someone who loves everything natural and glowy, I am sad that I didn’t discover the beauty of this palette until now. If you have not tried this, don’t hesitate like I did – purchase it, play with it & love it.

My velvet boots from Bianco

sko 1sko 2


Right before going to Los Angeles, these beautiful boots from Bianco got sent to me. I obviously had to pack them down in my suitcase, cause they are simply too gorgeous. The blue is vivid and electric which is my favourite kind of blue and the velvet fabric brings these boots a whole different kind of statement vibe. In the U.S, people really like to compliment each other, which is so atypical in Denmark. I honestly think it is one of my favourite american qualities, cause they sure must have made a lot of people feel good about themselves on a bad day. These boots were no different, I got so many nice comments about them and people even thought they were from a designer brand.

I am personally just as surprised about the quality as well. They really do look and feel like an expensive pair of shoes. They also have a very awesome nasty gal / jeffrey campbell look, which I am crazy about. Honestly, if you are used to extremely comfortable shoes like myself, you will need a good foot massage after wearing these boots out for a whole day. Either way, it is totally worth it though, cause they are gorgeous.

A visit @ Nialaya

PANTHER BRACELET $550  // Nialaya (here)

As you may know, I am currently in my favourite city of them all – the city of angels, joined by 4 of my friends. We obviously had to make a stop at the Nialaya store that my friend Ravi introduced me to a couple of years ago. The store is located on Melrose in Beverly Hills, which is one of my favourite places to stroll around. I left the store super excited hand in hand with their famous panther bangle in silver that I have been craving in my life for literally a year now, ever since I saw it on Ravi.  I am so excited to finally flash it aroun! Nialaya is really special to me, cause they focus on the spirtual meaning of their materials and I like to consider myself to be quite the spiritual person. I personally only wear silver and on the Nialaya website they describe that silver stands for wealth, prosperity and as metal of emotions, the psychic mind and of loving and healing. What better mix of greatness is there even?

Nialaya is owned by one of the coolest and laid back danes I have ever met. Their jewelry are seen on celebrites such as my own favourite, Justin Bieber – but also Beyoncé, Chris Brown,  Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba, Joe Jonas, Kanye West, Katy Perry, Kendall & Kylie Jenner, Orlando Bloom, Ruby Rose, Selena Gomez & Zendaya – just to mention a “couple” of the coolest! If you ever get the chance to click something home from Nialaya or to go visit their stores in either Los Angeles or New York, treat yourself and do it. Their jewlery are high quality, their costumer service is the best mix of american policies and danish courtesy, and I can guarantee you will love it just as much as I do. They have something for everyone!

Hey best friends. Today I’ll be sharing something exciting from Clinique. Clinique is one of my to-go-to brands, cause they always get it right! If you didn’t know, they not too long ago, launched some beautiful lipsticks called Clinique POP Lip Colour And Primer. Now, they’ve released 8 new beautiful colours to the collection that I am way too crazy about. The eight new colours are called: Mocha, Papaya, Rasberry, Rebel, Party, Sugar, Blush & Kiss.

The lipstick has a built-in primer in the formular, that helps seal in the lipstick, intensify the colour and make the colour stay put on your lips for a really nice amount of time. The best way to describe the feeling of this formular, is like comparing it to a lip balm. Cause it really glides on as seamlessly. This beautiful lipstick collection has a demi-matte to a shiny finish, which is the best way to go about your lips in the cold months. The Clinique Pop Lipstick moisturizes your lips and helps them they stay healthy & perky. Clinique claim for it to last up to 8 hours, and I’d agree to disagree. But they are for sure one of the most long lasting moisturizing lipsticks I have owned.

I hope you enjoyed this review! I know I have been talking a lot about beauty prodcuts lately and I still have a bunch of great products to share with you guys – so I hope you enjoy these posts. Tomorrow morning I am heading to Los Angeles and I can’t wait so share a bunch of beautiful pictures from the city of angels.

Glo Minerals Contour Kit

Glo Minerals


It’s time for another contour review! A few dasy ago I talked about Smashbox (read here). But another great option is the Glo Minerals contour kit that they recently released and I am so ecstatic over that they finally came on board with the trend. A lot of mineral brands tend to forget about the great trends and focus more on basic makeup, which isn’t necessary bad. But I personally prefer a more wide range of options and Glo Minerals has a beautiful variety of everything you could desire in the world of makeup. The reason to choose Glo Minerals, is cause they do not test on animals and their products are talc-free and non-comedogenic, which makes Glo Minerals a great pick for sensitive skin.

The kit comes in both “Fair To Light” & “Medium To Dark”. I obviously went for the fair to light kit, cause we all know I’m white as snow. The packaging itself is quite lovely. It is super sleek and great for travelling. The only thing I  dislike, is that there is no mirror. The mirror is instead replaced with a nice guideline so you can get the most out of your purchase.


Let’s talk about the product itself. First of all, Glo Minerals are what I like to call dummy safe. Their products are always super easy to use both for advanced and beginners. So of course I expected this kit to be as well. Luckily they didn’t let me down. I am so thrilled with the blendability of these powders. The kit comes with two highlighters, a matte and a shimmer for versatility, and two contour shades, a warmer & a cooler toned. They also only take me seconds to work in and the result is so subtle and natural. Really, it looks like you’re glowing and are sharp as hell, but from within. Even if you’re not all about the natural look – these powders are also easy to build up for an even more intense and defined look.

 Quick disclaimer: My Foundation looks super patchy around my nose, cause I was testing out a foundation without primer. As you probably can tell, it didn’t work well. BUT we are makeup survivors so it’s all good.

I was running late, so I did my contour quickly and it didn’t take me more than 30 seconds. I am not even understating the time. This was the fastest contour I have ever done. I love how it looks so effortless. I wore this out for an intense football game but the contour still stayed on the whole day. I’d compare both the consistency and the shades to the Smashbox Step-By-Step contour kit. They are very much alike. In the Smashbox kit you do get a brush but only 1 highlighter, where you in the Glo Minerals kit get both a shimmer & a matte option.

This is available @ Glo Minerals (here) for £30.00.
