? Change is Coming! ?

For the past few months, I have been slowly updating what will become a new “page” of my online presence. I have been doing this Beauty thing for TEN years this year and I decided that it was maybe time to update and do something different. Maybe create a new logo, new business cards, a new layout, new content…

There are so many questions as to how though – Should I create a new name or stick with PixiJasmine? Should I continue with my YouTube Channel or not? (I stopped a year ago due to many different reasons). What do you, my readers, want to read? Should I expand into lifestyle? Cooking? Crafting? Should I continue to write in English and Swedish or change back to just English? There are just so many possibilities!

If you have any input, please let me know! Hopefully by my birthday I would get everything up and running :)

Det har gått 10 år sen jag började blogga och vlogga inom skönhet… Jag håller på uppdatera bloggen och så kommer upp massa beslut som… ska jag ändra mitt namn eller behålla PixiJasmine? Ska jag fortsätta med min YouTube kanal? ska jag skriva om annat än skönhet som kanske livstil eller matlagning eller…? Vad vill ni läsa? Ska jag fortsätta skriva på engelska och svenska eller gå tillbaka till endast engelska??

Gärna hör av er om ni har idéer! Jag förhoppningsvis är klar med uppdateringen på födelsedagen! :)

R+Co Atlantis | A Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner

samples for consideration

R+co Atlantis
My God. Have I been living under a rock! While hanging out at a cocktail mingle, my eyes fixated on the R+Co shelves. I wanted to try their dry shampoo and also a few other products but then…the eyes rested on the moisturizing shampoo & conditioner in Atlantis and I’m thankful I had the chance to bring them home!
My God. När jag var på en cocktail mingel, mina ögon fixerade på R + Co hyllorna. Jag ville prova deras torrschampoo och även en del andra produkter, men sen … ögonen vilade på fuktgivande schampo och balsam som heter Atlantis och jag är sååå tacksam jag fått chansen att ta dem hem!

R+co Atlantis
The R+Co products are so beautifully and simply packaged and this goes for the shampoo & conditioner I got to bring home with me. Atlantis is a fantastic series to use on dried out hair and in need of a boost of moisture. It is also great for those of you who have thick or coarse hair too!
R + Co produkter är så vackert och enkelt i förpackning och detta syns på de här som jag fick ta hem. Atlantis är en fantastisk serie att använda på uttorkad håret och hår som är i behov av fukt. Det är också bra för er som har tjockt eller grovt hår också!

R+co Atlantis
Just for some reference, I have curly to wavy hair, thick afro-like if I don’t brush my hair out or if they dry in the curls without any definition product. I have recently had more thinning of my hair on my scalp due to ALOT of coloring and yes, I have colored hair still.
Jag har lockigt till vågigt hår. Det blir tjockt afro-liknande om jag inte borsta mitt hår eller om de torka som lockar utan produkter i. Jag har nyligen känt att håret har blivit mer tunn  på grund av en massa färg och ja, jag har färgat hår fortfarande.

The smell. Is AMAZING. You really get a salon feel when using the products as they are a bit thicker in consistency than regular shampoos and conditioners. A little goes a long way when applying into the hair. I also noticed that my hair got less fizzy (which is a challenge for most shampoos and conditioners!) and it gave my hair a good shine!
Lukten är fantastiskt! Du får verkligen en salong känsla när man använder produkterna och de är lite tjockare i konsistensen än vanliga schampo och balsam. Lite räcker långt när man lägger dem i håret. Jag har också märkt att mitt hår fick mindre fizz (vilket är en utmaning för de flesta schampo och balsam!) Och det gav mitt hår en bra glans!

I can definitely recommend this duo to those of you who are in dire need of moisture, if you feel your hair is too dry or too coarse and it works very well with colored hair.
Jag kan absolut rekommendera denna duo till er som är i behov av fukt eller om du känner att ditt hår är för torr eller för grov. Det fungerar jätte bra med färgat hår.

Have you tried anything from R+Co? If so, which product(s) would you recommend me to try next?
Har du provat någonting  från R + Co? Om Ja, vilken produkt (er) skulle du rekommenderan till mig att prova?

My Finds from H&M Cosmetics | Summer Sale 2016

H&M Summer beauty 2016 sales
The H&M summer sale is on! I didn’t have any intentions in buying anything but these were a tad bit too good to pass up as everything I bought cost ONLY 10 KR per piece!

H&M Eyeshadows are fantastic in quality – you get so much pigment in one swipe! They had mainly greens, blues and purples on sale and a few left really bad pigment once wiped off…however I found Wanderlust (org. price 59.50kr), a golden seaweed green that I had to get!

This was a product I really wanted but just never got around to getting and I saw it was on sale so I picked it up directly! It is the Global fusion eye pot in My Two Cents (org. price 59.90kr) – a rusty burnt  orange. It does smell of vanilla.

Glitter dusts in Klondike and Into the Cosmos (org. price 59.90kr /st) followed me home too! I figured that you can never have too many glitters to mix into looks! Klondike is a gorgeous silver brown and Into the Cosmos is a blackened green-blue.

Lastly, I picked up two glitter polishes (org. price 49.90 kr) in Mermaid and Bilberry Cascade. Both have a bit of a blue undertone so on top of a black base, these would be beautiful!

Orange Hair…Don’t Care!

I change my hair color quite often and this time I decided to go a bit lighter and well.. Orange! whatcha think?
