August Favorites

IMG_8601This month was quite a busy one: I’ve travelled to London, went to a festival (1 / 2)and then moved to Stockholm. On the favorites front I’ve loved using the combination of the Diorskin Nude BB cream in 002 and the NARS Creamy Concealer in Vanilla. These two product create a perfect light but even skin base. I’ve also rediscovered the MAC eyebrow pencil in fling which is just the perfect shade for my eyebrows. On my lips I’ve been sporting Rimmel’s In Love With Ginger, a bright orange-y red tone which enhances the slightest bit of a tan that I have managed to get. Other than that I haven’t really been loyal to any other product in the beauty department, most of it was on heavy rotation.

IMG_8607A duo that I bought in London are the Soap & Glory Foam Call and the Righteous Body Butter. I usually prefer showering at night and going to bed all cozy and lathered up in body lotion, but with this combo I’ve made an exception and switched my daily shower to the mornings. I’ve noticed I don’t even need perfume when applying the body butter as I notice a lingering sweet smell all day on my skin. If you’re a fan of Miss Dior Chérie you’ll love this, however, if that scent is too sugary for your likings you might want to give this a pass.

IMG_8630On a fashion-y note I’ve been wearing this H&M hat most days – the brim has the perfect width and it kept my hair and face from being rained on (not so much summer in Germany anymore..).

IMG_8637I’ve also gotten back into drinking more tea, especially Earl Grey with a tiny bit of milk. The smell and taste of this instantly relaxes me and gives me a warm, cozy feeling. I’ve especially enjoyed this on those rainy afternoons I just mentioned, cuddled up in a blanket watching YouTube videos or reading Robyn Schneider’s The Beginning of Everything. I haven’t gotten far into this but I’ll keep you updated on how I like it in a bit.


What have you been loving this month?

  1. Oh, I love earl grey tea…and lady grey is just amazing – it has slightly more citrus-y aroma to it. I think I will have a go with the concealer one day, the thing is tho… Nars and Mac is so expensive here (we have luxury-goods taxes here – ridiculous!) but I will definitely try it out one day. I tried to L’oreal True Match ever since I saw your post. LOVED IT <3. Lovely post as always Maja 🙂 ❤ xx Emma


    • I’ve discovered Sweden also seems to have something like that otherwise I can’t justify the huge mark up on the products… How annoying for you! Especially because the Mac Pro longwear is also so good.
      And aw yay I’m glad, it’s my favorite foundation as well 🙂 xxxx


    • I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off and had the price tag still attached for a good two weeks until I eventually dared to put it on. And loved it! Really transforms a whole outfit. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment 🙂


  2. Von der Diorskin BB Cream hatte ich auch mal eine Probe in 020. Hat echt ein tolles Hautbild und Finish geschaffen, aber ist an mir extrem nachgedunkelt, weil ich sehr schnell glänze, sodass ich am Ende des Tages orange aussah 😀 Aber an sich ein echt schönes Produkt 🙂
