Another type of vixen

Another type of vixen

Ni vet hur man kallar tjejer som är med i videos för vixens, Well jag har märkt att jag gillar att vara en vixen. Men en annan slags sådan än det man direkt tänker på när men hör ordet i sig. En skönhet och mode vixen helt enkelt!

Det här året har jag fått göra så många roliga ”vixen jobb”. Typ som detta med Lyko och Färg där jag skulle filma en tutorial med min favorit look ”everyday glam”. Ni kan se klippet här.

Jag har även gjort en snutt för Idun minerals i år tillsammans med Mimmi. Samt nu senast en grej för Åhléns med Frida Selkirk som jag tyvärr inte kan berätta mer om ännu. Hoppas definitivt på fler liknande uppdrag!

Juste, vill ni shoppa loss hos Färg makeup så ger min kod för alltid 15% på ert köp. Den fina paletten man ser mig hålla i är en måste produkt i allmänhet men också min absoluta favorit ur Färgs sortiment. Heter Everyday palette och finns i två varianter, för nu… Och vad menar jag med det? Får ni se efter årsskiftet!

Detta inlägg är en del utav ett samarbete med Newlook laser clinic

En sak som jag alltid förundrats över är människor med ”naturligt vita” tänder. Tills jag fick reda på deras hemlighet, skonsamma tandblekningar!

Jag är så glad för alla grymma kvinnliga entreprenörer jag har runt om mig, och allt dom lär mig som berikar mig på både kunskap och kreativitet.

En av dessa kvinnor är min barndomsvän Diana, hon är en laser terapeut och driver tre salonger i tre olika städer (Eskilstuna, Örebro & Köping) som heter Newlook laser clinic! Jag kan knappt hålla tre tankar i huvudet samtidigt!

Är så sjukt imponerad av henne och har nu under några års tid följt henne och arbetet med hennes salonger via Facebook och är så sugen på att själv öppna skönhetssalong!

Diana har i alla fall lovat att hon ska bli typ som min mentor kring det hela och vi kommer samarbeta en hel del framöver.

Det första samarbetet blir en tandblekningskurs och jag kommer bli hennes officiella representant här i Stockholm när hon släpper sitt egna märke och kurs med fokus på just hennes produkter och koncept. Vi drar igång med det till februari förhoppningsvis men ni kan ju redan nu boka in er på tandblekningar hos mig. Jag har lediga tider från och med nästa vecka och har just nu ett erbjudande innan jul, skriv till mig på Instagram så berättar jag mer!

Så håll utkik för mer updates om Newlook laser clinic här på min blogg och Instagram. Vill ni hellre bleka tänderna hos Diana i någon utav hennes salonger så hör av er till henne. I salongerna kan ni även få andra behandlingar som microblading, permanent hårborttagning, botox mm. Skulle ni vilja göra dessa behandlingar i Stockholm så har jag (och bästa Irene) snart goda nyheter för oss storstadsbor!

Jag är så taggad, let’s do this! Följ gärna Dianas salong på insta, Newlook laser clinic.

Ps. Jag gör en liten mini turné nu runt jul med rabatterat pris på tandblekning och sminkning. Boka din tid redan nu då jag kommer ha begränsade platser!

Vita liberata, tanning made luxurious!

This post contains adlinks from Adviral, however all options are as usual my own!

Vita liberata, a multi award winning luxury tanning and beauty brand founded by Alyson Hogg 2003 with ecological, natural and syntethic ingredients. The brand has tanning products for both face and body that consists of traditional lotions, mousse, serum, overnight mask and powder.

Thou Vita liberata has it’s ground in tanning they have also ventured into skincare and makeup. As well as products with spf to ensure the all around coverage as tanning products don’t consist of a cover for sun and UV radiation.

Photo borrowed by Vita liberata

Was told that one can use the mousse and use white linen without worrying about stains in the morning as the product absorbs quickly. This is kind of revolutionary as most products don’t offer that ability and we are told (in school for becoming a tanning artist) to inform our clients to use dark clothes and linen after using tanning products!

One thing I’m not sure if you all know of is that I also do spray tanning and I try to encourage more people of color to try it as it gives this amazing glow to the skin and actually stays longer on darker skins. How great isn’t that?! I’ve also posted recently about another tanning brand and will try both to hopefully be able to compare the results. However I’m all ready leaning towards using Vita liberata more as it’s also has spray tan products, which I can use for work too!

Vita liberata is distributed by Christian Hallberg AB in Sweden who also has brands such as Kiss NY Pro, Noxi doxi and more. NKD skin is the follow up brand from Vita Liberata, which has a lower price range.

A little background about DHA

DHA is dehydrating so the skin might feel a bit dry after any type of tanning with tanning products, therefor it’s important to moisturize well afterwards. The substance is made from vegetable glycerin found in sugar beet and is a natural sugar substance. One can also attain higher levels of DHA by eating fish such as salmon, trout, mackerel, sardines, krill and herring, as well as fish liver oil. However one needs to eat a ridiculous amount of it to see effects on ones skin.

En liten morgon rant…

En liten morgon rant…

Måste få ranta lite denna tidiga söndag. Talat med många som säger samma sak nämligen och det stör mig att vi kan kollektivt gå ihop och rätta normativa människors misstag & fel men vi rättar inte våra egna eller backar våra egna.

Ex Emma Hallberg grejen. JÄTTE BRA reagerat & agerat utav folk. Men vrf läggs inte samma krut på att boosta ex en influencer som kunde ha fått de platser, uppdrag etc som Emma ”tog”?!

Hänger ni med hur jag menar?! Kampen måste alltid, enligt mig, vara tvåsidig. Inte bara en kamp där vi rättar de wrongdoings andra gör mot oss. Utan också att vi checkar oss själva och BACKAR oss själva. Lika kollektivt som när vi står upp mot de vi ansett gjort fel måste vi lyfta de som faktiskt gör rätt. Eller?!

Missförstå mig rätt nu. Call them out & all, I mean drag them if you must. Men glöm inte se bjälken i våra egna ögon. Vår bjälke är att vi inte lyfter och supportar varandra enough. Jag är inget undantag i många fall så jo jag kastar sten i glashus. But somebody had to say it so…

Tips på poc influencers vi kan lyfta, mer:

Irene Ekelund, elitidrottare/stylist/mua

Harriet Kyolaba, kreatör & powermum

David ”Mr Davvee” de Fataki, artist & instagrammer

Kan ge fler tips men nöjer mig här. Vill ni följa & supporta mig finns jag här på min blogg, min insta @iamayshajones & snart mer på YouTube.

The pressure of press week!

The pressure of press week!

So we just ended a fabulous press week here in Stockholm and I must say it feels rather awkward to run around to different showrooms and brands events because it’s something I did a lot of starting up like 14 years ago and left because of the way people handled their happenings. Meaning the lack of diversity. No sugarcoating!

Not much has changed but it’s gotten a little bit better. There are still some who refuses to see the major wins in targeting a broad range of people. However there’s those who thrive to the occasion both in invited guests and execution of their press days. These are this seasons favorite press events.

Red & Square

The firm handles brands like Diechmann, Espirit, Naim Josefi and more. They’re always attending to each guest themselves, mingling and encouraging one to feel at home with a glass of bubbles and delicious snacks. No wonder why everyone gets stuck there longer than intend. I also love how they don’t crowd the showroom with brands and products which allows you to really take in each brands news and ask about them without stress!

My favorite items from their press day:

Let’s face it

Most of my favorite products are from brands they represent such as Idun, Real technique, Eco tools, Wet n Wild etc. Their newest brand is the Wild nutrition from UK which offers a food based nutrition pills with a little extra focus on the female needs. I’ll write more about them as soon as I’ve tried the products because they seemed very interesting and like something I need!

Here’s a few shots from the Wild nutrition luncheon. I’ve all ready posted, twice, about the Idun news. Hope you read those if not do so now.

Isadora

A Swedish brand I actually grew up with but stopped using later on out of reasons I can’t remember. They hosted their press day at the luxurious hotel Diplomat in central Stockholm and you know I love myself a good hotel suite party & Isadora did not hold back on the glam factor! Everything was perfectly planned and executed with the awesome makeup artist Martin himself offering full glam face beats & presenting the news.

Last but not least I loved the press breakfast at Juno PR for Swedish CCS.

Juno PR has mastered the art of hosting a fabulous breakfast event and even though I do love my sleep I don’t feel salty when they ask me to get up and be active early morning. Everything is always flawlessly matched with the setting, table decor and of course the presentations! I love the fact that they always manage to snatch the young and modern PR reps to their teams and they have an eye for how to make awkward bloggers like myself feel comfortable.

CCS is Sweden’s and UK’s leading brand for foot care products and their launch came jam packed with knowledge (love it!) and products to try. I’m trying them out after the Glamation gala and off course I’ll share my two cents here later on.

I’m exhausted from being so social everyday for a week and been sleeping it off most of the days this week. Hopefully after the weekend’s shenanigans I can get back to basics and start trying some products. Hang with me on Instagram if you miss me, I pony regularly there.

Spa day with Idun, photobomb

Spa day with Idun, photobomb

I woke up today feeling very relaxed and blissful. Thank you Idun dream team for a wonderful day and congratulations to the new product range, great step!

Idun is launching a whole new product category for all genders within haircare. The new products are as always vegan, dermatology tested and the hair products are free of sulfates. However the hair products have a minor scent to it for the freshness feeling. The range consists of shampoo and conditioner for volume & care as well as for repair & care, hair mask and a leave in treatment (my wigs will love this I’m sure!). Not bad for a launching kit!

For the makeup parts I’m extra excited as you can read in my previous post and the reason for it is that is the tinted day cream Len. You can find out why in the said post from yesterday.

And for the skincare part these are the news: facial oil serum, moisturizing face mask, face scrub, lip balm and a gentle face peeling.

Wow, I wonder I hope the CEO gives my girls a raise because they’re working hard and achieving greatness with the products! I’m so happy to be able to try their products and I haven’t found a single one I don’t like yet even if not all are my tone the products as such tend to be impeccable!

Well enjoy the photobomb from yesterday and let me know if you try any of the news. I’d love to hear your thoughts on them and specially the tinted day cream!

3 is the magic number!

3 is the magic number!

I’m so excited for today I woke up much earlier than I had to. I know, miracles do happen they say…

Reason for my excitement is the spa day I’ve been invited to by Idun minerals for the launch of their new products. Apart from new haircare products they’re finally(!) launching the product I’ve hinted about all summer in my blog and on Instagram, the tinted day cream which actually has my tone!!!

Their product developer Caroline gave me the honor of testing the very first batch and even though I couldn’t use that one my mother could. She’s a bit fairer in her tone than I. I gave my feedback to the lady with the magic touch and she took them right to heart and short after sent out a new batch for me to try and it was a match made in heaven! Ever since I’ve actually stopped using foundation daily and most often use the day cream with a setting powder or just as it’s. I love using it with the foundation powder from Idun as well!

I’m Helga & Helga is I!

My Idun foundation tone is Helga and as you could see on my stories the other day it’s time to buy a new one. For those wondering where you can get their full range I recommend the pharmacy in Kista, just opposite my favorite restaurant (yes it’s a restaurant because they got food and chairs!) McDonald’s. They most often have all the tones and products!

In these below unedited photos I only have the day cream on with my favorite lipstick and a brow gel. All from Idun, of course!Gotta share some photos of the awesome girl power team at Idun! Couldn’t find the photo of me & Efsane tho and I don’t think I have any photo of Gabi. Love the kissing photos of me & Cecilia haha!

Make sure to catch my insta live today at 2pm (14.00) and then again once we arrive at the spa!

Bff or at least in book shape

Bff or at least in book shape

Did a photoshoot with my friend Thobias this summer for a book I was asked to be in. It’s about friendship and the book was released not long ago. I’d definitely say Thobias will be my friend for as long as I live!

Elin has done all the interviews for it and Rickard has taken the photos.

As you can see we did the shoot in my apartment and I must say it’s starting to look very photogenic. Done three shoots here this spring/summer alone!

I gave Thobias his copy at my birthday party, thought it be the perfect day to hand it over to him!

I really like the book and the thought behind it. It’s also very cool to have been asked and now have our friendship forever captured in a book! Who would you have done the book with if you could be in it, and why that person? I’d love to know so as always feel free to dm me on Instagram!
