Rome daisy beauty 2016
Weihoo! We arrived in Rome safe and sound. We were taken to Hotel Ambasciatori Palace. The hotel is located in the Via Veneto quarter and is magical!

I was lucky to bunk with the kind and inspring MakeupbyLina! We “knew” each other from way back when and end up at similar events so it was a real treat to spend more time with her! (*photo taken by Lina)

Grazette of Sweden’s Linda Beronius followed with the Swedish way to repair hair on all levels.

Rome daisy beauty 2016I can say that Gazette of Sweden was the brand that I truly was excited about on this trip as since I encountered them during their event, I have been using their products religiously and can say that I am absolutely sold on their products!

I can say just after the two presentations, we all were quite tired but still wanted to head out and see Rome so Adaras, Wysteriia, Sofies skönhetsblogg,  Brown Sugar & I walked are way to the colosseum and stopped at a number of attractions. Then we ate at a café afterwards just to get something into our tummies!

NOTW Marble Nails for Rome

NOTW Marble Nails 160514
I wanted to try the (old) new trend that has been popping up that is Marble Nails. I felt it was perfect especially since we (as you are reading this) are in Rome at the moment!
Jag ville testa den (gamla) men nya trend som jag har sett överallt som är Marmor naglar. Jg tyckte det passade perfekt inför resan till Rom (som jag befinner mig när du läser detta)

To cleanse the nails I used the Depend 7 day cleanser, the base coat (and later the top coat too!) Afterwards I applied some Depend Grape & Avocado oil which is one of my favorite oils at the moment.
Jag rengarde naglarna med Depend 7 day rengöring, baslack och använt också topplacken efteråt. Jag också använder mig av Depends Grape & Avocado olja som är en stor favo just nu.

The polishes I used are:
Jag har använt de här lack:

NOTW Marble Nails 160514

  • Essie Polish from Cashmere collection in ‘Wrap me up’
  • Depend 7 day in ‘7093’
  • L’oréal 672 ‘Gris Décadent’

NOTW Marble Nails 160514
Just because, I decided to play with these decals I bought from Ebay way way back. I put EXTREMELY discrete Coco Chanel logos on my middle fingers. Pretty cool that you can see them only if you look closely… Maybe some kind of symbolism of how Rome is? You always see something new no matter where you look in Rome!
Men bara för att så kände jag att leka lite med lite klistermärke jag köpte på Ebay jätte länge sen… Jag la en Coco Chanel logo på både mina mellan fingrar som nästan inte syns…bara när man kolla närmare så ser man dem. kanske lite symbolisering av hur Rom är? Man alltid hittar nånting nytt varje gång man kollar runt här i Rom!

Have you tried marble nails yet?
Har du testat marmor naglar än?

?The Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist?

tony moly bunny mist
I picked up a new Pocket Bunny mist. Of course, the packaging is super duper cutesy but  I can say that the product is filled with awesome ingredients like raspberry, strawberry, baobab tree and peach extracts all of which give hydration. There is also celtic water which gives nutrients and minerals to the skin.
Jag köpte nya Pocket Bunny misten och självklart så är förpackningen super gullig men jag kan ändå säga att produkten innehåller underbar ämne som hallon, jordgubb, baobab trä och även persika extraktet som ger fukt till huden. Det finns också celtic vatten som ger näring och mineraler till huden.

tony moly bunny mist
There isn’t all that much to say about the product except that it is affordable, gives a good glow to the skin and is super fresh to use throughout the day. I usually use it while sitting by the computer or infront of the tv. I like the fresh scent and that it doesn’t get sticky on the skin. I guess the only downside is that you can’t really use it as a primer nor does it have an extremely good spray pump (it does spray a bit too hard to be honest!)
Det är inte alls mycket att säga om produkten förutom att det är värt pengarna, ger bra glöd till huden och uppiggande för huden under dagen. Jag brukar använda den när jag sitter framför datorn eller tvn. Jag gillar doften och det blir inte kladdig när man sprejar. Jag tror det enda dåliga med den är att tyvärr så är det nog inte en primer och pumpen är inte super duper bra (den sprejar lite för hårt). 

Will you give this bunny a try? What have you tried from Tony Moly?
Kommer du testa kaninen? Vad har du testat ifrån Tony Moly?

Polka Dotted Summer Days! (TOTW, Toes of the week!)

TOTW Toes Depend sunny Days Summer 2016
Its not always you see swatches on toes and I cannot say I have the pretties little mini sausages but I was painting them today with the new polishes from the Sunny Days Collection from Depend and I wanted to show you my masterwork along with the other products I usually use to care for my toes…
Det är inte alltid man ser swatches på tår och inte som mina är världens finaste men jag lekte med de nya färger från Depend och ville visa er min mästerverk…

TOTW Toes Depend sunny Days Summer 2016
Here you see four must haves in my toenail routine:
Här finns 4 produkter jag använder på mina tår:

  1. One awesome nail file from Sephora has two sides, a file and a finish and it also has a peel off property so you can pull of the used part 3 times EACH side!
  2. I also love the manicure remover pen from Sephora. It has just the right amount of remover in the tip for easy removal since I always “color”outside the nail area.
  3. Quick dry from Sephora is the most AMAZING product and a MUST HAVE for EVERYONE. It smells amazing and my nails are dry in less than 1 minute making designs super easy and my patience dampened.
  4. Lastly Essie’s Gel Setter top coat is freakin’ amazing. This topcoat gives a gel-like look to the nail and also keeps polishes on longer for my part. It also dries very quickly.

TOTW Toes Depend sunny Days Summer 2016
I used the polishes from Depend in:
Jag använt de här färger från Depend:

  • 479 A Magenta pink
  • 480 A Sunny Yellow
  • 486 A beautiful turquoise
  • and a O2 polish from their colour pop collection in 483 which is a light lavender color

As I have the Depend temporary tatts out on my table I decided to pimp my feet as well so I did a gold/silver toe ring and even a pretty design on the side of my left foot. You can find them here and for 59kr/ sheet.
Jag också hade Depends tatts på bordet så jag självklart lekte lite med de med. Du kan hitta sånna här och för 59kr/ sheet.

What polish color do you use on your toes? Do you do any designs on the little buggers?
Vilken färger använder du på tårna? Brukar du lägga lite designs på dem?
