StyleLounge I was looking for the classic Vans shoes for a while now, but I noticed that many online shops had a different price.
A month ago I find out about StyleLounge.

My Skincare Routine

Lately I made a real change to my skincare routine. I’ve been struggling with finding the right products for my skin that actually works. Recently I received some products from Yves Rocher’s Sensitive line. I am struggling with some redness and my skin in general is quite sensitive.  I was a bit lazy with investing in good products for my skin. I just took my make-up off, used a face wash and after that applied some moisturiser.

Yves Rocher Sensitive Vegetal – After two months

So I have been using this line for two months now, and I can really see a big difference. My skin is more clear and less red. It looks smoother and just glowy and healthy. Besides a good skincare routine, I would recommend drinking a lot of water to hydrate your body/skin.
– I first take my eye make up off, with a basic eye make-up remover
– then I use their cleansing milk and toner to remove my make-up on my face
– after that I apply their serum
– then I use the Yves Rocher Sensitive Vegetal eye cream! (I love this one)
– and last but not least I apply the moisturiser on my face

The Eye Cream

My favourite is the Eye Cream from this line. I actually never used eye cream before, I always neglected it. Now I finally can see the importance of it. After applying this eye cream, it felt instantly more smooth and fresh under my eyes. I would really recommend this eye cream.
My skin has improved so much, especially the redness is almost gone. I will definitely continue using the Yves Rocher Sensitive line.
Which products do you use for your skin?

I thought it was time to pull out this flower embroidery top again out of my closet. I have it now for a couple of months, but sometimes to be honest I am too shy to wear it. It’s a crop top from Urban Outfitters, so you can wear it best with high-waist jeans or a skirt. This day I was happily walking around in a park close to my home.




Also I recently dyed on my own my hair again. Always when I go to a hairdresser it just never turns out the way I wanted. So I do my own hair for a while now. I just bought professional hair dyes online from Schwarzkopf. The top colour is: 6:11 and the blonde parts are 8:11. The 11 stands for ‘ashy’ tone. I love colder ashier tones. When I first bleached my hair it got a bit orange/warm, because I have dark hair. Well enough about my hair haha!

I got so many nice compliments on my Instagram about this flower embroidery top. Thank you all for the nice messages! Don’t forget to follow me and leave a comment below 🙂

XOXO Nina

PS: Have you seen my Denim Skirt trend post? This one is really nice to combine with this flower embroidery top!

Summer temperature in Sweden

Best Beach Spot Stockholm? I was wondering now summer is here in Sweden, where I could enjoy those long summer nights the best in the big city.. Every time I walk around in my new city I feel so blessed that I live here. The summer has been amazing here so far. I know it’s not Greece or Spain, where it gets like 30-40 degrees celsius. But with 22 degrees and long days of sun, I definitely cannot complain.

The other day I was with my roommate at this beautiful ‘beach’ spot close to our place. It’s called: Smedsuddsbadet. Many families and kids are enjoying the summer here at this small beach. Also you can swim in the water, it’s super clean. But to be honest, I think it was a bit cold yet.. So I still have to try it soon haha. But it’s perfect to just sit and relax and watch the amazing view.

Best Beach Spot Stockholm

Picnic with wine

This is a beautiful spot for a picnic, either with a friend or for a romantic date. You can watch together the sunset or make Instagram pictures haha 🙂 The sun goes down late here during the summer, so the days are long and you can enjoy them fully until the late hours. My roommate and I just took some fruit and a bottle of rose wine to this beach spot. We have been enjoying the sun and the beautiful view here the whole evening. For us this is definitely the best beach spot in Stockholm!

Do you have nice summer spots in your hometown? Where are you from? Let me know in the comments!

Real Musthave

This season a denim skirt cannot be missed in your wardrobe. I am totally obsessed with this trend. You can wear a denim skirt with sneakers, but also with heels it will go very well. You can combine it into a casual or either chique look. Also on chilly summer nights I love to just put on a sweater on top of a denim skirt. The look is still ‘summery’ then, but I just love it with oversized sweaters. Denim SkirtShop This Look here:

I was lucky to visit Ibiza three times already. I have such good memories about this places and I really want to go back to this Island soon. I was editing some old pics lately, and I found so many nice ones that I needed to make a blogpost about my Ibiza memories. Have you ever been to Ibiza?

Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza

The Hard Rock Hotel in Ibiza is a ‘fancy’ hotel next to Ushuaia. Ushuaia is the place to be when it comes to parties. This is the biggest open air beach club/ish I believe? Anyway, I love day parties, so for me Ushuaia is the places to be. A couple of years ago I was there during Swedish House Maffia and the other years I was joining the Revealed Recordings family. Find the best prices for hotels in Ibiza here!!!!

The Island

Besides partying, Ibiza is a beautiful island with many nice beaches and a lot of nature. Many people believe this is only a party Island, but I would disagree on that. However, it is quite an expensive Island. So I think on Mallorca you can find similar nature/beaches as on Ibiza. However I never been to Formentera yet. It’s a small island across Ibiza where you can go by boat. It has white beaches with clear blue water #instagramgoals.

Where To Go Next?

Right now, I am spending my summer mostly in Sweden. I just moved to Stockholm so I needed to organise some stuff, which means: no time for travelling. I can’t complain the summer is pretty nice here, but do miss the hot days like in Spain. I am thinking now to book a trip soon. Maybe Santorini, maybe Bali? Where are you girls going this summer?

Ibiza Holiday

Sunglasses: hereIbiza Holiday

Yesterday my brother arrived in Stockholm. It’s actually his first time in Sweden, so funny haha. So when family comes to visit you, you have to show them your city right? Well I’m such a pro at that (not), cause I live here ‘already’ for a month. But hey I have it a try and showed my brother some Stockholm Highlights.

Stockholm Highlights

The Islands

So what’s classic in Sweden or Stockholm? Well, Stockholm is basically a town of small islands. So we have a lot of water and nice places you can take a walk. Last night we walked from Kungsholmen (Norr Mälarstrand) all the way to the City and Gamla Stan (Old Town).

Gamla Stan (Old Town)

In Old Town you can see some nice old buildings and the Royal palace I believe? Correct me if I’m wrong haha. There are many nice historical buildings, churches, Riddarkyrkan, and some touristic shops for souvenirs. You will not find many locals here, to be honest I never spend time in Gamla Stan. It’s really just for tourist to see the old part of the city. Because this is also an Island, obviously it’s nice to walk around the ‘island’ next to the water. You have a nice view at one point on Södermalm (the hipster area).

Classic Swedish Meatballs (Köttbullar)

After our touristic walking tour, my brother wanted to have some real Swedish food. So we all know Ikeas Meatballs right? haha. So I took him to a restaurant where they have real classic Swedish Meatballs. In Swedish they are called: Köttbullar. And no, you don’t pronounce that K. My brother’s pronunciation: ‘kutbullar’ hahahah. Couldn’t stop laughing. But actually a common mistake. Don’t ask me why, but this K is a weird thing in Swedish. They pronounce it as: ‘sjutbullar’. Something like that, if that makes sense? 😉

Today we are going to the Vasa museum and maybe we will take a nice boat tour. There are plenty of nice things to do in this city, so hopefully we can do all of them!

Have a great weekend! Xoxo Nina

A few days ago I discovered Tularosa on ASOS. Why didn’t I see this brand before, was my first thought? Well their clothes got my attention so much, that I needed to make a full blogpost about Tularosa (USA here, Europe here).

Tularosa The Brand

They described themselves as ‘A refined vintage-inspired collection of romantic dresses, textural jackets, and embroidered tops designed for the wild at heart’. It is a shame though that you can’t find much about the brand online. Where is it from? How did they started? Who is behind it? If someone at Tularose is reading this, I would suggest an about page on your website 🙂 haha. What I found is that they ship from the US, so US based I guess????

ASOS 336x250

Perfect for Summer Holidays

Their collections looks so summery and are perfect for a beach holiday. I’ve selected some of my favourite items. I do not own any yet 🙁 But I’m planning the buy some, since on ASOS they are getting on SALE now as well. yay! We love SALE <3

PS: I still haven’t planned my summer holiday. I am so last minutes with these kind of things. Where are you girls going this summer?
