Hi guys! Hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday. Today I thought I would share my beauty routine with you! I hope it is of any interest.

The first thing I do when I wake up is wash my face with a wet, cold cloth. I always use a rough washcloth to get a scrub feeling. I then use Kiehl’s Ultrafacial Cream for moisture – it’s an absolute favorite of mine. I used the Chanel Hydramax Active facial gel for about 5 years and loved it, but it’s not very budget friendly for a poor student. After looking for a cheaper (but just as good) moisturizer for over a year, I finally found the one from Kiehl’s. Just like the Chanel Hydramax, it has a gel-like consistency that absorbs into the skin immediately without leaving it greasy and/or oily.

Post-mosturizing I put on Estée Lauder’s DayWear Sheer Tint Release. If I was to recommend one product this would be it. I have been using it for ages, I don’t even know for how long. It is not a foundation, BB-cream or whatever. It is a tinted moisturizer that enhances and evens out your skintone with a beautiful glow, leaving your skin looking natural and fresh. It goes on untinted (the tint comes from your skin), therefore the cream is grey when it comes out of the tube (not to be alarmed!). It also has SPF 15.

After the tint release I always use my Lancôme Effacernes Longue Tenue concealer under mye eyes and at the nose wings. It is also SPF 15, and mine is in color No3 Beige Ambré.

As for the eyes, I apply a light, natural colored eyeshadow. The Chanel is a favorite, and also Chubby Stick from Clinique. Then I make winged cat eyes with Chanel Stylo Yeux eyeliner, and put Yves Saint Laurent Dessin Du Regard Long Lasting Eye Pencil on the lower waterline.

Then my brows get a fix-up with Yves Saint Laurent Dessin Des Sourcils Brow Pencil.

Last, but not least, I use an eyelash curler and put on two strokes of mascara on my upper lashes. I don’t always wear mascara, but when I do I’m not picky about which brand I use. I just buy whichever is on sale at H&M!

Before going to bed, I remove the makeup and wash my face in hot water. I then apply another one of my favorites, and a quite popular product all around as I understand it, the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate. 3-4 drops is enough for face and neck. 12182246_10156069120690161_810956831_n

And most important of all – always get enough sleep!

Sponsored MacBook cover from Tox Leather - get it here!

How do you like my new MacBook case? I have been using an old Marc Jacobs case for ages (a big, fat one), and thought it was about time I got a new one. It was therefore a godsend that this baby from Tox Leather came in the mail yesterday. It is made of 100% cowhide, made completely by hand - stitches and all. It also has a little pocket that fits my phone, and some practical pen-holders. My mom also suggested wearing it as a clutch - great idea, right?? I'll have to try that with my next outfit.

Did I mention that the price will make you smile? Only 660NOK for a 13" like I have.

Comes in more colors and sizes, and is sent via DHL Express. Mine was delivered on my doorstep the day after I ordered it!

PS. Every item can be personalized with embossed letters and numbers.

Top SheIn (sponsored – get it here!) // Skirt TopShop // Heels Zara 

Good morning and happy Friday!

Some of might have already figured out that I loooove knitwear, so I was quite happy when this gorgeous knit top from SheIn landed in my mailbox. It’s simple and chic and can be dressed up with a pair of heels, or dressed down with a hat and white sneakers.

As for my weekend plans – I have NONE. Zero. Nada. And it is such a great feeling. Today I’m just going to clean the house, take a long walk in the beautiful autumn sun, and make pizza. Mmmm. Over the weekend I’ll also do some research for an article I’m writing for a new psychology magazine’s first edition (so excited!). Maybe I’ll bake something as well, though I’m not feeling that inspired in the kitchen lately. Does anyone have any good recipes I should try?

What do you think about this maritime look? I bought the striped knit last week and I have been wearing almost every day since. It’s made of 100% merino wool and was only about 54$! 

Hope you are all enjoing your week :)

A few weeks ago I entered a partnership with the knitwear design-brand Lôkal. It is  a small business based in Oslo, Norway and is run by the lovely Camilla Dingsøyr. Lôkal makes simple, beautiful, classy-with-a-twist knitting patterns, while being easy and understandable. The patterns are reasonable priced (about 6€ a piece) and English patterns are available. Just find the item you want to knit and send them an email requesting the pattern. You will not regret the joy of making something wearable with your own hands. 

I am really excited about this collaboration, and I can’t wait to show you the finished products. Above you can see the sweater I made with the pattern “Chunky Knit”. My next project is this beautiful cardigan:

One thing I love about fall is layering and especially when mixing textures. My favorite combo is leather and chunky wool.

PS. Can you believe next month is November?? I can hardly wait!

Finished knitting this oversized, chunky cardigan the other day and thought I’d show you guys. I was so inspired by the Mr Mittens knits and have long thought about knitting something like it and here is the result.
