Beauty favorites

Beauty favoritesI know I rarely mention something about beauty, or speak about any of my beauty routines. But there are so many good products and news for this spring, I just have to mention a few favorites that are available right now. From the top left: the Swedish perfume house Byredo, founded by the super cool dude Ben Gorhan, has released a new scent called ‘Inflorescence’. The new release is a tribute to fresh spring flowers and contains fresh roses and pink freesias with a touch of jasmine and magnolia. Maison Martin Margiela has launched three new fragrances called ‘Replica’ with associations to places like ‘Flower Market’, ‘Beach Walk’ and ‘Funfair Evening’ – “Three fragrances that re-transcribe the scents that speak to all of us, resonate with our imagination, awaken our memories.” Both the scent from Byredo and Margiela are fragrances I have to try. When it comes to lip care I never use lipgloss, instead I have my favorite from Rosebud or Burt’s Bees. Yves Saint Laurent’s ‘All in One’ BB cream is one of the best containing SPF25. If you are going for some luxurious stuff for showering routines, you have to get the shower gels from Byredo – they are amazing! When still in the shower, apply the ‘Bronze Goddess’ from Estée Lauder. It is a body oil spray which make your skin super smooth and it smells like a tropical heaven. And at least a nail polish that will work your nails is this one from YSL in the color ‘Bronze Aztec’.

Regret

Ok, so there is always one piece (or several…) that you regret not buying, almost each season. Remember how I was talkinig about it here? That bag is from several seasons ago, but still cool. I was looking through my archives of pictures and I found these shoes, from Yves Saint Laurent (yes, no switching name if it’s not for this season, right?). They are still super cool and that’s a pair of shoes that would look great with my closet today! From the (Yves) Saint Laurent Ready-to-Wear S/S 2009 collection.

Wish outfit

I love the idea of wearing light colours when it’s getting darker outside – and especially when it’s the season of the year when everyone else is dressing in dark colours. This outfit above is truly symbolizing timeless chic – striped pullover and crocodile backpack from The Row, beige wool-coat from Vanessa Bruno, hat from Borsalino, mesh body from Saint Laurent, trousers from Alexander McQueen, ‘horse-bit’ loafers from Gucci and 18 karat yellow gold bracelet from Diane Kordas.
