Daisy beauty expo 2019 recap

Årets Daisy beauty expo är avslutad och som sig bör och förutspått utav teamet är alla trötta men (väldigt!) glada. Det gäller nog både utställare och besökare. Jag hoppas även arrangörerna känner likadant.

Jag har under två dagar matats med nyttig information och frotterat mig med några utan branschens mest kunniga influencers som alla delar min passion för skönhet och hudvård. Jag suger på att ta bilder med folk men vill ni se de som var på plats kan ni följa hashtagen #daisybeautyexpo så ser ni massa grymma profiler.

Fredag, seminarier & middag på Hotell Birger Jarl

Jag blev pga sen leverans från Elgiganten sen och missade en av de två föreläsningarna jag verkligen ville gå på men lärde mig en massa på de andra. Ex att kokosolja kanske inte är så nyttigt som vi tror och att blodpudding är bra för kroppen. Finns dock inte utan fläsk.

Under middagen så hamnade jag i ett väldigt trevligt sällskap där vi pratade om lite allt möjligt och hade kul!

Strax innan middagen skedde en lustig men så bra grej! Agneta som är en grym journalist frågade var skalan för hårstrukturer kommer ifrån och det visste jag inte. Det hela slutade med att halva ligan letade källor och försökte lista ut sin hårtyp. Så kul & #källkritikärviktigt ! Ska berätta mer om detta på Signature reports.

Vi njöt i alla fall utav en god middag och mycket trevliga samtal. Jag gick ut med en vän och dansade en stund (läs tills ca 04ish).

Lördag, mässa på Strandvägen 7A

I år flöt allt på så sjukt bra, och många utav oss gäster började vår runda på olika platser så det blev ingen seg kö med massa stress.

Utställarna bjöd på exklusiva visningar kring nyheter och många hade även någon kul aktivitet i sina montrar. Jag älskar att gå runt och prata med alla och det känns som om att man står hos ett märke i timmar och pratar för alla är så sjukt trevliga och all infon är så värdefull! Det är verkligen en lyx att som skönhetsbloggare få gå på expon för man får sån inblick och inspiration ifrån alla som är på plats.

Försöker klura ut någon favorit men alla lägger verkligen ner så sjukt mycket engagemang i sin medverkan så det blir svårt. En svårslagen utställare är väl Depend som man alltid fastnar hos. I år hade dom lagt till en aktivitet som var att man fick göra sitt egna nagellack! Och Let’s face it som har bla Idun minerals och Eco King. Där fick man fotas framför en magisk spegel och det var verkligen Snövit känsla när den visade magiska och fina budskap till en!

Well nu ska jag ut och härja med dom små som jag saknat och sen blir det till att fixa inför nya veckan. Jag kommer att få tre praktikanter som ska vara med mig under hela året. Ni lär få läsa om dom och se dom på min insta inom kort.

Vill avsluta med att tacka världens bästa Daisy beauty team för ännu ett fantastisk arrangemang med lika bra utförande som människor! Vill också tacka alla grymma varumärken som varit med och alla mina fina bloggisar som är så sjukt bra och välkomnande! Ses igen på Daisy beauty awards.

Ps. Flaggar redan nu för att jag från och med nästa vecka mest kommer bjuda på skönhetsinlägg med produkter/info från expon. När jag väl testat produkterna så kommer jag göra reviews och som vanligt skriver jag bara om produkter jag tycker är bra och vars sortiment är inkluderade.

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!

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.

Skin & cosmetics fair

Skin & cosmetics fair

I had the honor of attending the annual Skin & cosmetic fair (Hud & kosmetik mässan) this year that was held in Kista and it was incredibly fun!

I was informed by the beautiful beauty maven Elin Fagerberg about the fair and she was also the media host of the event. She gave us a tour of the fair and then helped us in the press and influencer lounge. In case I forgot to tell you Elin, you were awesome and thank you for telling me to attend!

I’m so eager to try some of the products that we got testers of but since the fair was last week I’ve all ready managed to try some…

Click on the photos if you want more info about any product or brand.

These soaps from Grevinnans rum are true artwork! I have one on my desk just to feel a bit artsy when I work.

I’m currently trying this one, click on the photo to read more about the soap.
I’m also trying new products from Rosenserien & Acasia skincare, two brands I really love!

Hey recognize us?! Will tell you more about this book soon.

Me & my husband fought over this one. He won. So he will review it properly but from the little I did get to try it I like it. A very unique product!
Daisy beauty was a media partner and also an exhibitor so we got their latest numbers and I love Arga tanten (the angry lady). But she’s not so angry more fabulous and so humble & wise!
Power women on the cover, love it!!!
News from my friends at Rosenserien, full review will be up soon!

Malta vibes, join me!

I’m entering a new way of living life. I call it do whatever you like and everything that scares you type of living! It’s really refreshing and most of all freeing, highly recommended.

One of my do whatever you like shenanigans is my birthday trip to Malta that’s coming up pretty soon. I don’t think I’ve spend a single birthday away from my kids ever. And definitely not in the past 7 or so years as my youngest also has his birthday the day after me and up to now I could never imagine not being here for his birthday! Or any of my other kids birthdays either. But I’ve gone through so much this summer and my whole body and soul needed a reason to get away for a while on something that won’t be just work. So I forced my friends to join me on some shenanigans in one of my favorite places, Malta!

Photo taken by Katriina Mäkinen in Malta

To see more of my time there I suggest you follow my stories on Instagram as I won’t be blogging those days.

Well look at this fancy hotel (yet so affordable!) we found on bookings.com who also owns the photos!

Have you ever been to Malta? If not I recommend you go at least once! Should you be there during the time I’m there then do slide in my dm to get invited to our birthday fun, I’d love to meet as much cool people as possible. That’s when I’m not chilling by that fancy pansy pool or drinking bubbles on our balcony!

And then came a new time of day…

And then came a new time of day…

I’ve tried to write this post for days without success because I want to describe my feelings and thoughts which I can’t. I simply can’t say how happy I’m to have swallowed my pride and ignored my fears when entering the competition by Blogozine and Nya trafikskolan in Sunne. A competition I won and which led to me writing this post as well as the one you’re reading now.

I guess I’ll just say it. I’m now a part of the Blogozine crew of amazing bloggers and you can find my blog on their network!

The seconds before I’m surprised with winning, that’s Lisa sneaking up on me thinking I’m just posing for my sister!

Blogozine was started in 2013 by Lisa Sjödahl and is both a network and a online magazine. It focuses on storytelling and the people in each story, may it be within sustainable fashion, beauty or lifestyle. Therefore it’s extra fun to also get to write for the magazine as it’s fashion and interior editor!

This year I made myself a promise which I don’t think I’ve shared with anyone(?). The promise was to say no to more things I’d normally say yes to and say yes to few things I’ve said no to in the past. Just a few. I wanted to see where it would take me and I’m so happy I’ve done so because even though I might have lost some people and things I’ve gained so much more. Self worth and understanding of it. It’s really a magical thing, kinda like peanut butter and jam. The fact that I’m allergic to nuts have no relevance in this resemblance!

Well I’m looking forward to this fall and hopefully soon I’ll have more news to share but for now let’s prepare for fashion week and long for the weekend.

Celebrating with churros!

My bags & shoes are from New Yorker in Kista C, trousers from Nelly & glasses from Firminio Stockholm

All photos are taken by my sister Awa who organized the whole surprise revelation together with my friend Samira and Blogozine.

Planning & winning, how was your weekend?!

Planning & winning, how was your weekend?!

Oh I’m super excited about telling you all this because I suck at keeping secrets as you all know by now. Few weeks ago I entered a competition on Instagram organized by the social platform Blogozine. They were giving away the prize of a lifetime and I who normally never enters competitions swallowed my pride and gave it my best shot even though my answer reveals a heavy reality I felt I needed to share it in order for them to understand I desperately needed to win. Not for my own sake but for my kids. My sister and Samira (whom I also have the podcast with) planned the perfect surprise revelation of the fact that I won! What did I win?! Go to Blogozine on Instagram to find out, click here to be taken there!
Yesterday was one of my favorite days of the week, Sunday, which means planning and family brunch. I really hope we can keep this up and get together every Sunday or at least every now and then.
On Sunday’s I plan my week and create most content for my social medias. I just recently bought a calendar that’s amazing and will really help me pinpoint my goals each month. I’ll show it to you soon as for now I gotta go to bed!
My three planning tips
  • Make it a fun task by planning in a place or room that you like
  • Let your interactive week start on Tuesdays that way you all ready know what’s coming for Monday morning and can leave that day for admin work
  • Don’t overdo. Make sure you get enough rest and if you feel extra creative or energetic one day you can always do spontaneous meetings
Three tools I use for planning
  • A actual old school calendar, however a very nice one which makes it fun to plan
  • Colorful pens & post its
  • Music to set the phase and keep the energy high
My top three places to sit & plan
  • Espresso house, basically any one by specially the one in Kista close to the library and the one at Stureplan near Friday’s and Lagerhouse.
  • My home office. When it’s not a mess that is!
  • My balcony in the summers, I just looove it!
How does your three top three look?

Reserol, beauty from within…

The founders Magnus Nilsson Vall and Mikael Lindblad have backgrounds from working at major brands/corporations such as Omega pharma, Aco, Astrazeneca, Media, Galderma, Novartis, KRKA and Bayer.

Photo belongs to Reserol

They left their well paid jobs within pharmaceutical to start their own brand, Nutrinovate (more known as Reserol). A bold move that quickly proved to be the right one by creating ”the worlds first flat pill”, a Swedish innovation called Resveratrol boosting films. It’s a nutrition product that resolves in your mouth with it’s key ingredient being Resveratrol.

Resveratol is a plant polefynol, found in the skin of red grapes, with anti aging effects. It protects the skin against outer stress such as parasite- bacterial and virus attacs as well as against UV radiation.

The substance (resveratrol) has proven to give positive results on our skin, against diabetes, inflammation, and heart- and vascular diseases.

The brand has been nominated for several prizes and is the winner of Nutra ingredients awards 2018 for editors awards for innovations.

Some of you may remember when I visited their pharmacy in Täby, Stockholm a few months ago? If not it may be because you’re not following my stories and posts on Instagram, fix that! If you wish to see a short clip of me showing how to use the film then do click here.

Coming soon…

I’ll leave you all with some news that haven’t yet been made public but given to me first hand during the Daisy beauty influencer seminar in Bath (taking place right now).

Reserol gave us an exclusive pre launch of two products that are coming soon on reserol.com and launches in September at Apoteket (the pharmacy).

Overnight moisutre mask, 50ml (499kr)

A overnight mask with hexapeptides, sheabutter and vitamins that contributes to maintaining a moisturized skin. It gives a soft and smooth skin with a reduction of visible lines and protects the skin against dehydration.

Reserol retreat sheet mask, 10ml (4 masks for 795kr)

Consists of hyaluronic acid (HA), Resistress and Glycerin. Those substances should leave the face smooth, hydrated, have soothing effects and help your cells in epidermis to regenerate quicker. I will definitely try it and tell you more later!

PS. They also have a serum and tablets for boosting the immune system, hopefully I’ll tell you more about it in a near future.

Ida Warg’s bathroom & I

Yup, you read the headline right and if you keep reading you will understand more!Yesterday I attended the last event for a month where I actually could eat but didn’t as Ramadan is closing in and was preparing myself for it by getting my body used to not eating.The event was held by my favorite Queens at Let’s face it in honor of the beautiful Ida Warg launching the first set of products from her new beauty brand. I know what you’re thinking “is all high profile influencers going to launch products?!”. Yes they are, why shouldn’t they! The questions to ask is “can they create good products and be innovative at the same time?!”.

This photo of today’s beautiful table setting is taken by Joanna from Let’s face it!

Beautiful Joi, my precious assistant and hopefully so soon again!

My answer to that is yes, it was lastly shown by Therese Lindgren and her brand Indy beauty (I’ve posted two post about this, read them here and here). If Ida Warg has pulled it off I can’t say as I just got the products but I’m impressed by the very energetic and humble power lady in more ways than one!Here’s a shortlist of why and how she’s impressed me, a review of the products will hopefully be up soon too.

1. No scent what so ever in the products and it’s non sticky! I hate sticky products, sticky anything really…

2. Social skills =100! Not many high profile influencers can keep their humbleness after massive fame and wealth, but Ida was so humble I didn’t know she was she until far in into our conversation.

3. Dashing mummy looks, someone needs to put her and the tiny belly on the cover of a magazine!

4. Her bathroom. It breathes Scandinavian elegance and luxury as it’s all in marmor and is definitely goals! We kinda agreed that I can stay there in return of cleaning her bathroom and I most definitely would, have you seen it?! She’s dropping a clip of her fancy home today on her YouTube! Click here for direct link.

The Ida Warg tanning collection consists of products four products. Whereas the spray and lotion is the ones I’m most keen on trying. Why?! Because spray tans on darker skin evens out the color and gives a flawless glow that lasts a while!

Spray and mousse, for the face and body

It’s said to give you that beautiful sun kissed results within 3 hours, consists of natural sugar (DHA) without azo colours.

“The products are easy to use and the right choice if you are looking for that airbrushed look.”

It don’t contain perfume and have no scent to it. It can be used by skin tones, moisturizes the skin for up to 48 hours and is 100% vegan!

Contains: 150ml (each)

Price: 179SEK (each)

Lotion, for face

The tanning lotion is said to give you that beautiful sun kissed results within 3 hours, consists of natural sugar (DHA) without azo colours.

It’s developed for ones sensitive skin on the face and it leaves your face feeling soft and revived. Just as the other products this one is 100% vegan!

Contains: 50ml

Price: 179SEK

Tanning mitt

It will help you achieve that perfect natural sun tan look, without living lines. The mitten can be reused!
