I've never been fond of scarves. At least not of tiny ones that fail to provide my neck with the warmth it craves during the cold and hard fall/ winter times. But when I found this one, a neat 100 % leather scarf from the Styleby x Wera collaboration, I couldn't resist claiming it as mine. Whether I was convinced by my mum's persuasive ways or the countless editorials my eyes feasted upon in the latest Styleby magazine, it doesn't really matter. I got it, and love it. And it's now my perfect fall accessory. You can find it here.
During Halloween we say yes to scary makeup, scary costumes and scary parties. But what we don’t want is skin that give us the creepers. That’s why I’ve picked out a few Halloween-inspired skincare saviours for the ones who don’t want a canvas bathing in fake blood and glue.
Active charcoal, 3 types of mud and NeoGlucosamine act as powerful deep cleansers, removing impurities, dirt and oil while exofliating and refining large pores.
For all skin types. Ideal for acne-prone and oily skin.
Floral waters and botanical oils come together in this calming and nurturing two-phase cleanser. Suitable for all skin types.
Colder degrees result in drier skin. Infused with black rose oil, macadamia nut oil and almond oil, this face oil will give your skin a well-needed hydration boost.
If your skin looks tired and lifeless, or your pores are clogged, this enzyme peel should be the only pumpkin you stuff your face with this Halloween. Pumpkin enzyme, AHAs and aluminium oxide crystals work together to remove dead skin cells and give your skin lustre and new life.
Camelia, rosehip oil and essential fatty acids moisturize, soften and stabilize your skin’s moisture levels. Ideal for thirsty skin.
"Books are a uniquely portable magic" - Stephen King. Could not have said that better myself. I'm currently losing myself in Atticus' beautiful world, allowing his words to transport me to places I can never visit outside my head.

The details make the outfit. They always do. In this look I adore the belted bag, which can be styled in two ways. Either used for its purpose - being a bag to keep your cash, keys, nude lipsticks or whatever item you want to store in it. Or as an eye-catching element. That being the buckle.
Another thing I'm obsessing over this fall is leather on leather. While you certainly can go all in and rock it head-to-toe, it's more interesting if you throw in other fabrics for contrast. Especially if you choose to wear an all-black ensemble.
These are real cyckling shorts. Like, they have a built-in pillow that creates an illusion of a bigger booty. Uncomfy, but... well, no one's missed the obsession with having a thick booty, so I'm kinda liking it. You should also know that that's not the reason I bought them... at all! I bought a helmet and was also going to buy a mountain bike last summer. But since summer -17 was like a pro-longed spring and an early fall I never got around to it. So instead of weeping over a pair of never worn cycling shorts I dug them out from the back of my wardrobe for styling purposes. Lucky for me cycling shorts are the shorts people have been wearing this season. And last season. Unfortunately I won't be able to rock this look any longer since the degrees are dropping. Perhaps I'll give them a new purpose and drag my lazy, newly thick booty to the gym. Who knows, maybe I'll find a purpose for the unused helmet too.

This year Pinterest saw a 281% increase in searches for Vegan Beauty! That's an insane increase, which gave me the idea to post a guide on how to prolong your summer tan the vegan way. Below, find 6 vegan self-tanning products! (According to Veganguiden.se)
My first beauty memory: I was a teenager browsing through a glossy magazine and came across a golden goddess look in a spring/summer issue + tips on how to recreate it. I recreated it and it's been my signature look ever since - bronze skin, bronze lids and nude lips.
My daily beauty routine: Cleanser, micellar water, serum layering (2-3 serums), day cream, SPF.
Makeup look: Bronze skin, bronze lids and nude, glossy lips + dark brows, 2 layers of mascara and kohl liner for intense eyes.
Time spent on doing makeup: I rarely do my makeup, but when I do, it takes about 15 minutes.
Selected makeup must-haves: Bronzer, eyebrow pomade & nude lipstick is all I need for a fresh beauty look.
Hair care secrets: I rarely wash my hair and I never use heating tools! I keep it natural = no styling products and I apply nurturing hair oils daily. I never comb it when it's wet and squeeze the hair rather then rub it dry. I use hair treatment masks weekly.
Relationship with scents: My first love was Escada. Every single launch. I was obsessed! Ever since, I've been a fan of all scents fruity, floral, sweet, fun and playful. Juicy Couture's fragrances are my favorite at the moment.
Skincare obsessions: Sheet masks drenched in nurturing ingredients, serums, acid peelings, eye patches.
Salon treatments: Every now and then. I admit I've been lazy lately, but I'm saving up money and have enough cool products to treat myself at home with.
Beauty icon: Aaliyah!
Something you want to try out: Microblading.
When do you feel the prettiest: A fresh spraytan works wonders for the complexion!
