Blue winter coat

Finally it got a little colder here in Norway. After many weeks of rainy weather and 12 degrees the air is dry and freezing now. Time for winter wardrobe!

I found my perfect coat at Mexx! I love the classic cut and double button design.

What kind of winter wear did you chose this year?

Marina Miracle Argan Night Serum / Marina Miracle Eyelash Serum

As many of you know already, I have been a big fan of Marina Miracle ever since I bought her face oil. After getting the opportunity to test her other products, I can assure you they are just as miraculous!

 

Marina Miracle Herbal Face Oil

So this is how it all started: The Herbal Face Oil made my skin glow after only two days of using it and I was hooked. It is (like all Marina Miracle products) 100% natural, suits all skintypes and has anti-aging features. I use it every morning and evening before applying my moisturizer and sometimes, when I’m in a hurry, even mix it with my moisturizer which works just as well. The skin doesn’t feel greasy after using it but simply soft. Especially in winter I find it tricky to find the right skincare for me as my skin tends to get dry but products that are too rich make me break out. So I was more than happy to see that Marina Miracle’s Face Oil is just the right amount of moisturizing and makes occasional spots fade even faster.

 

Marina Miracle Argan Night Serum

Now let’s take a look at my new products. The Argan Night Serum with AHA is exfoliating, moisturizes the skin and promises to tighten the skin. So I guess I’m too young to say anything about the tightening effect but I can definitely say that my skin looks more radiant and pores are less visible, probaly due to the fact that this serum removes dead skin cells and renews the skin. As recommended I used it about 3 nights a week on cleansed skin. I absolutely love it!

 

Marina Miracle Eyelash Serum

The Eyelash Serum is the product I was probably most curious about. We all know lash growth serums but an eyelash care that you apply directly to your lashes was completely new to me. After using it every night  for the last few weeks I wonder why I had never thought about eyelash care before. I use oil on my hair to make it stay shiny and grow longer, so why not do the same to your lashes? The serum promises to prevent lash loss and make lashes grow healthier and stronger with several vitamins and argan oil. A pleasent immediate effect of this serum is that lashes look more shiny and darker (which is particularly nice for us blondes). It seems that this effect lasts longer and longer now, not only right after applying it. My lashes actually appear a bit stronger and healthier and more visible even without mascara. When it comes to lash products, you usually have to wait for a few months to see the full effect as lashes stay on your eye for around 100 days before falling out and re-grow. So I will keep you updated!

Oh, and a little tip on the side: Marina also has a skin care range for men, just in case you are looking for a Christmas present for your boyfriend or husband.

New in: Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Eye Opening Serum

Although I have been a Kiehl’s fan for a while now and own many products, I have been neglecting eye creams for years.

But I definitely had to try this new Super Multi-Corrctive Eye Opening Serum. In fact it was on my Christmas wishlist but my parents were so nice to send it to me early!

I can’t review this product properly just yet as I have only been using it for a few days but my eye area definitely looks more refreshed.

Have you tried this serum yet? What’s your favourite eye product?

Christmas Lights

It’s nice to stay in sometimes, especially during winter time. The first Christmas lights are up and we have been watching some classic movies. Has anyone seen “The 7 Year Itch” with Marilyn Monroe? I love all her films!

What did you get up to? Hope everyone is having an amazing Friday night!

Healthy apple pancakes

I started my day with a delicious apple pancake. I tried out a healthy low calorie version of pancakes by preparing it without sugar and eggs. You can actually make a good dough with only milk, flour and a tea spoon of honey, just be sure to mix it well. I sliced up a small apple and added the pieces onto the liquid dough in the pan.

Instead of whipped cream I added a light sour cream and topped it off with honey and some walnuts. Delicious!

Bling ring

For years I have been avoiding glitter and sparkle on both clothes and jewelry. But these rings made me go back. When I saw them at H&M I just had to get them. As I have mentioned before, I hardly ever wear real silver and gold as I like to match my jewelry with my seasonal wardrobe and try something new every now and then.

Despite the sparkly bits on these rings they look quite subtle on the hand even if you wear all three of them at the same time.

Faux leather

As many of you know already, I am a big fan of all kinds of leggings. My latest addition to my collection are these back leggings with faux leather details from Calzedonia. Here I combined them with a classic white blouse and semi-high ankle boots. But what I like about these pants is that you could also wear them with a plain T-shirt or an oversized sweater and sneakers.

How to make the most of autumn

Incense sticks

1 / Get cozy! Light up some incense sticks or scented candles, sit on a fur rug and enjoy a hot cup of tea! When it’s dark and grey outside, it’s more important than ever to be in nice and cozy surroundings.

 

Criminal novel

2 / Read a good book! I think we all have a book on the shelf that we wanted to read all summer but were too busy because of the good weather outside. Now is the perfect time for a good thriller by the fireplace.

 

Wellington boots

3 / Get out there! As nice as it is to cozy up at home… Try to catch every sun ray you can get. Daylight makes your body produce vitamin D and keeps you in a good mood.

 

Granatapfel

4 / Eat your vitamins! To keep your strength up in that cold wind outside, be sure to boost your immune system with some healthy food.

 

Gilmore Girls

5 / Revive your DVD collection! Remember that one series you always used to watch back at school? Dig out your old DVDs and enjoy your evenings with some classics!
