Tagga Daisy beauty expo 2019

Tagga Daisy beauty expo 2019

Snart är det dags för Daisy beauty expo och jag längtar! Här är en återblick från förra året.

Det var så mysigt eftermingel på hotell Kung Carl (bodde där över natten, rekommenderas!) under Daisy beauty expo dag 1 att de flesta hängde kvar och bekantade sig. Eller gjorde som jag och hade en mini photoshoot med hjälp av goda vänner med ett öga för foto haha!

Tack Jasmin för bilderna <3, och till alla som har frågat så är min peruk gjord utav en annan fantastisk kvinna vid namn Oley Ceesay Grönqvist aka Scalp perfection. Hon är helt magisk och über grym på att färga hår så jag rekommenderar hennes verk varmt! Kolla in hennes insta för mer inspiration vettja och namedroppa gärna mitt namn så får du förhoppningsvis lite rabatt eller special treatment 😉 Klicka här för att komma till Oleys Instagram!

Äventyret började med seminarier som var både intressanta och lätta att hänga med i. Följt utav lite middag och mingel sedan övernattning i det fina rum ni ser på bilden.

Dag två bestod utav lång dag med utställaren inom mestadels hudvård och kosmetik men även doft och hårvård. Vi fick exklusiva presentationer utav årets nyheter och det var verkligen en beauty influencers dröm!

Även om dagen var intensiv så hade jag extremt kul, lärde känns nya människor och återsåg gamla favorit personer som Katarina från CHSAB (Kiss NY pro, Noxi doxi, Vita Liberata), makarna Swartz från Rosenserien, dreamteamet hos Let’s face it och Depend cosmetic über coola girls squad!

Ni förstår att jag längtar tills nästa expo som är nu i januari? Säg till om ni vill att jag delar något speciellt därifrån. Jag ska försöka hinna med en och en annan live också.

Ps. Hjälp mig bestämma om jag ska köra en staycation i år också på min Instagram där jag gjort en poll.

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!

Yoga essentials

Yoga essentials

Det var ett tag sedan jag gjorde yoga och jag tycker det känns i mitt mående. Jag är inget yoga proffs men hela grejen med att få en lugn stund för mig själv gör mig gott. För att inte tala om att jag även äter bättre under perioder jag är aktiv med min morgon och ”mitt på dagen yoga”. Typ som denna frukost jag önskar jag åt nu, en bowl med overnight oats och lite annat gott. Recept på min (Kerr Jollof) overnight oats finns här.

Bjuder på lite bilder ifrån vår yoga shoot på Malta tidigare i år. Älskar dessa set från Hünkemöller! Bilderna på mig är tagna utav Katriina Mäkinen.

En annan favorit är sprayen från Gröna gredelina och badsaltet som har lite lugnande effekt. Läs mer om produkterna här.

Vad är era bästa tips för att hitta lugn?

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.

Flawless makeup needs flawless skin!

Flawless makeup needs flawless skin!

Don’t fool yourselves babes, without a skin on fleek no makeup will look good and most importantly stay good throughout the day! This I learnt from my teachers at Makeupstudion makeup school, which may I say is the best makeup school in Sweden. I might be bios but hey, aren’t we all sometimes?

I’m always complimented for my flawless skin but do you know how I prep my skin?

I did a interview yesterday (I’ll share it once it’s out) and we came to the conclusion that I got about 40 products, give or take some, that I use on a regular basis. I know it’s sick. All though I love those products it’s definitely not necessary to have all of them, my setup consists of various serums, day creams etc. because I like to use different brands products depending on how my mood is. You however, you can do great with just one pair of each item. Saves you a lot too!

Well this is what I do, pre-makeup that should last an entire day that is.

1. Wash off with a soft peeling scrub and makeup remover. Quick wipe off with a micellar water.

2. Face mask. Right now I’m trying out a mask from Kiss NY Pro with active charcoal. My favorite however is the ones from Acasia but they cost more so I only use them for special occasions.

3. Serum & day cream. I’m a sucker for Idun minerals skincare products in general and they’re my to go to brand but right now I’m mixing it up with another wünder product the heavenly drops & extra loving cream from Palina.

4. Face mist. I love to use Rosenserien’s rose water for this part!

5. After all of this sometimes I spray a bit of NYX settingspray or I just go ahead and apply my makeup.

One thing I do know is that my makeup does last long, for example in these photo I’m wearing yesterday’s makeup & it still looks very natural and ok.

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!

Face boosting for magic moist & glow!

Face boosting for magic moist & glow!

Ok so I’ve been skipping my regular face care routines since beginning of summer and my face is officially unhappy with me for it. Therefor I just did a new face care routine that I’ve been doing for two weeks now and my face is finally coming back to it’s flawless self!

My goal was to cleanse my skin, reboost it with moist and glow. We tend to forget that cleansing and moist is the key to a great skincare routine and fresh look.

Here’s what I’ve been doing once a week, add lots of water and rest to the mix and it will have you looking like scmoney in a heartbeat.

Gentle peeling

As most, if not all, products from Rosenserien this peeling is ecological and based on the super plant Aloe Vera. I like the fact that it’s so gentle and soft on the skin. A perfect peeling product to start off with as it activates your skin without stressing it!

Deep cleansing clay mask

A favorite I haven’t used in a while in this clay mask from Rosenserien. It has just enough scents for me to be able to use it without feeling it’s too much. Recommend use is once per week.

The smooth sugar scrubs from L’Oréal

I’ve written about these before if I’m not mistaken. However they’re must haves in my “emergency detox” routine.

Soft peeling that soothes dry skin, softens it as well as gives the skin a magic glow! Who doesn’t want or need that?

Hydra lagoon overnight mask

“The one night product I’ll never change”, quoting myself from earlier this week on my Instagram! However this overnight mask with niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and malachite can also be used as a quick fix mask anytime of the day. The mask stimulates the skins collagen and boosts those tiny lines whilst giving your face a smoothing touch and a glow that lasts a whole day! I’ve actually stopped using night lotions and serums due to it.

Start me up sheet mask

The new sheetmask from one of my favorite skincare brands Acasia is loaded with active charcoal and retinol. One thing I love about the Acasia sheetmasks is it’s design, it makes you really feel as if you had a face lift. It both cleanses the skin, refines pores and gives an enchanted elasticity and glow!

Revolution eye gel

The bags under my eyes aren’t Chanel so they need to be gone!

The Noxi doxi rye gel is a two step gel which boost those bags and gives you back faith in humanity at once. I’d say that the brand itself and the products they produce is a statement for the environment and how we damage Mother Earth which also causes our skin to be damaged. The brand has an anti pollution skincare range with everything from face mists to lotions of various kinds. I love them, and the revolution eye gel is a favorite together with their detox makeup remover!

Let me know if you do try it and what effects it had on you.

Let me tell you about Terri!

Let me tell you about Terri!

When I was in London I met so many cool people. With cool I don’t mean the way society looks at the word, I mean cool as in free spirits, warm-hearted kind and open people. Hey come sit with us people! One of those, a favorite was Terri!

So who is she?!

Terri is a Irish savy lady who’s energy is energizing and aura speaks volumes without her saying a word!

I’m amazed by her history of struggles turnt into strength and wisdom and I’m hoping she writes a book one day so you all can get to know her too! But until then do follow her on Instagram and enjoy these shots we spontaneously took at my favorite restaurant, McDonald’s. Yes, it’s a restaurant and the photos are as fab as a Big Mac with extra cheese!

London, fashion & missed opportunities…

London, fashion & missed opportunities…

Those of you who has followed me since way back aka my day ones, knows that I used to live in London for a short while in 2004. I went there straight from collage thinking I’d become the next Naomi, as did all skinny and somewhat tall black girls at that time. I became no Naomi and not even a Tyra, however I did fall in love with London and it was a bittersweet love indeed. I went home, pregnant and stopped modeling as such. Instead I had a wonderful baby boy (he’s not so wonderful now however being the tiny teenage monster he’s!) and became who I was supposed to be. Me. In all my glory. But I’ve always wanted a way back to London’s fashion scene and God all mighty gave me plenty of them but scared as I was I always found a way to hold myself back. This summer has been all about facing inner demons and taking a good look at myself to find some type of reconciliation with myself, people of my past and present. So that I, we may welcome the beauty of the future in peace, self control, self confidence and most importantly self love.

I thank my dear friend Samira and my stronghold Ous for pushing me to go. And most of all I thank my new manager and confident qween Yasmina for making it all happen for me, listening to my fears and then ignoring them completely in full faith of my inner strength that I myself forgot I had. Without you I wouldn’t have made this personal milestone a reality and I’m so happy to have you in my ring corner!

Here’s some photos of myself because I know what y’all really wanna see and read about is the shows, the glory and the glam. Which I’ll give y’all in tomorrow’s post but if you can’t wait til then go to my Instagram where I’ll post few glimpses on my stories. Find me on @iamayshajones as per usual babes!

By the way. Do something crazy today and then tell me all about it, let’s be savage together!
