It’s here! The real fall, not the fashion world fall where it’s hot as hell but you (aka me) still think it’s worth the struggle to sweat in full leather looks, high boots and mohair wool knits that feels like torture when your skin gets damp from sweat. Yesterday’s black sky, stormy morning and crisp air felt comforting somehow. Maybe I’ll clean the apartment, make mashed potatoes and lit candles tonight for the first time this fall.

This past weekend was perfect. We did” normal” family activities like eat taco’s, playing in the park, walk in the forest and visit family. I think everyone enjoyed it, because my husband has been away but now, he’s finally back. Family complete!

Some of you wonder what I wear on days off work, like when I go to school, pick up kids and you know, grocery shop for example… It’s difficult to say, because it really depends. However, mostly I do wear the same thing all day but change from heels to sneakers when I pick up the kids and vice versa. At school, I usually wear whatever I wear to work, because I usually go to class straight from a meeting, event or photo shoot. At first, I felt kind of awkward marching in wearing high heels, but now I’m completely over that. Maybe because I already feel like an alien struggling with students 10 year younger than me, living a different kind of life than myself ;).

What I love tho, is to be comfortable. I love to wear nice sets that feel good on the body while they look elegant and nice. Just like this Busnel set. This set is perfect for travelling, hotel breakfasts (yes, I plan my breakfast outfits when I travel and think hotel breakfasts is a category of its own) and to take kids to school in. Since many of you have showed interest in my Busnel pieces, I would love to know whether you’d be interested in me doing a little video on Stories for you where I review and show the pieces I have? Let me know either here or on Instagram if that’s something you’d want me to do. Check them out here!

Have a lovely day!

True Match

Beauty,13 September 2019

Maksettu kaupallinen yhteistyö L’Oréal Paris:in kanssa// Paid collaboration with L’Oréal Paris

I love healthy looking and feeling skin, which is the main reason I like to take care of it and give it lots of love and care. In this post and on stories today, I’m trying out L’Oréal Paris True Match foundation with a new formula, infused with Hyaluronic acid. I love to wear makeup that does good for my skin, because my skin philosophy is: protect along the day and nourish during the night when our bodies repair and re-build. Hence the love for using makeup that protects my skin and does good. This foundation is something between a moisturizer and foundation, because it’s 80% moisturizing cream and says it will improve skin quality in two weeks! If makeup can do that, I’m on!

True match feels very lightweight and smooth, is easy to apply while it gives a medium coverage and a very natural but beautiful and dewy finish. I always use my fingers for a warmed-up formula to work with, which I think sets beautifully onto my skin while it feels like the cleanest “tool” to use. I love when the foundation blends into the skin instead of stay “on top”, and this does that very well, which I think makes it so natural looking while still giving my skin an even skin tone and satiny feel.

The new formula is fragrance free and  you know I like that, because I like to limit fragrance only to my chosen perfume and lipstick. Side note, lipstick is one of my favourite scents in the whole world! Anyhow, if you like me love the natural look, I highly recommend going for this one.
