Body sculpting - what is it?

Body sculpting – what is it?

I have always been happy about my body and the way it looks…. said no one ever!!  I fully support anyone that feels the need to change their body in some way in order to feel confident and more self assured as long as it is within a healthy limit although that line can get a bit blurred too. Everyone has problem areas and for me, no matter my weight, it has always been my double chin so when I got the chance to team up with Húðfegrun I grabbed it. I have tried facial exercises ( mostly in the car on the way to or from work ) and it has been an uphill battle. I signed up for the recommended six session with Díana at Húðfegrun. She greeted me with a huge smile and all my prejudice and feeling it would be totally “superficial”  faded away completely. “Húðfegrun uses radio frequency treatment to attack the fat layer of the skin causing the fat cells to evaporate” explains Díana. “The fat cells will be cleared naturally through the bodies lymphatic channels and it is totally risk free.” The fat cells will be gone forever but that doesn’t mean you have a free pass for the rest of your life. It is very important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. So what does it feel like? Díana puts a lotion on the area and uses a machine ( see picture ) on the area. It feels warm and comfy, imagine having a heating pad on your face, after that Díana adds a skin tightening treatment to further add to the effects of the treatment.  The procedure only takes around 20-30 minutes and thats it. I came back every two weeks and I had six treatments in total. To be fair I…


Get your beauty sleep

Get your beauty sleep

The skies are still grey here in Iceland. I find that my energy levels are not as high when the wind blows and the skies are dark. So, I thought I would share some tips with you, things that I am trying at the moment in order to get a good nights sleep and maintaining my energy throughout the day. Take a warm bath. Try and relax, put on some meditation podcasts and perhaps throw some lavender oil in the tub or even on your pillow if you do not have time to take a bath. Even just a few moments of meditation can do wonders. Make a nice cup of tea ( coffeine free ) and think about how your day went and the positive things that happened. Take a few deep breaths and think about how you are going to tackle tomorrows tasks. I have been trying to do some mediation exercises and I feel like they help with the stress and fatigue. Some days are better than others  of course but if I manage to get up early in the mornings, have my coffee and listen to the news, I feel like it gives me less stress throughout the day.

Force of Pure Nature - Dark

Force of Pure Nature – Dark

I have known Ásgeir and Begga, who run MASK Academy, for a while now and I am always in awe of their amazing work.  From doing Hair and Makeup for artists such as Svala and Ragga Gísla over to creating another world by doing hair and makeup for EVE Fanfest held at Harpa every year and believe you me that is just the tip of the iceberg. I got really excited when Ásgeir told me a while back that they were developing a Sea Breeze mist under the brand name “FORCE OF PURE NATURE-DARK”  and I was so eager  to try it when he finally told me it was on the market. Here are some pictures from the launch party for the mist: See what I mean by talent and creating another world? The face mist is purely derived from Icelandic nature and for me that gives the product such an advantage. It screams purity and freshness, Icelandic mythology and mystery. The face mist manages to convey the message perfectly. The packaging is pretty cool too, dark and mysterious 🙂   I have been using the mist for a couple of weeks now and I can really say that I am pretty hooked especially on those mornings when I feel extra tired. The spray is available at the duty free as well as the store at Mask Makeup Academy. Hope you are having a wonderful day and dont forget to follow us on Instagram: reykjavikfashion Love,  


Scandinavian Summer

Scandinavian Summer

Hey you guys, sorry for being dormant for such a long time. I got swamped at work but I am back on track. I don´t know about you but I am totally getting into the summer mood and with a new season must come a new hairstyle. I didn´t go as far as cutting into a short bob like Kim Kardashian but I decided to go with Scandinavian and color my hair a little blond and sun kissed.  Here are my inspirational pics. What color are you going to go for this summer? Love

Holiday Gift Guide

Holiday Gift Guide

Some people can be quite tricky when it comes to giving them presents. They either seem to buy the thing they need almost instantly or dont have any clue what they want.  I often end up giving them something generic and boring. This year I decided to do some detective work and try to find something within a wide price range and would be creative and fun to give. The jacket from 66 north has been on my wishlist since last year – actually I first saw it in red and black but I don´t think they make it in that color anymore. Makeup is always a classy gift and perfect for  a friend. I have been using the lip balm from the blue lagoon forever and there is no turning back I also carry the face mist from collagenvorur.is in my bag at all time – a product that I can highly recommend. The Becca primer and foundation is on my wishlist as well as the sunflower clock from Vitra – one can always dream. Manuka Doctor Eye Oil, Available at Deisymakeup. Blue Lagoon Scented Lava, Available at Blue Lagoon. 66 North Tindur Puffered Jacket, Available at 66North. Nikki Williams Key Ring, Available at Mai. Rifle Paper Co. Diary, Available at Petit.is. Frederik Bagger Glasses, Available at Snúran. Vitra Sunflower Clock, Available at penninn. Aurum Earrings, Available at Aurum.  Becca Back Light Priming Filter, Available at Hagkaup.

All I want for christmas !!

All I want for christmas !!

I have been trying to refrain from listening to Christmas songs or decorating my flat too early. I recently joined a choir and for the past weeks we have been singing Christmas songs – preparing for our concert in December. Although I have been able to put of the Christmas spirit until the 1 of December – I now cant help it. I prepared a little wishlist of items that I want for Christmas. This carpet from Mundu Mig would fit beautifully in my kitchen. Crazy cool shoes from Maia. Potential Christmas outfit available at Vila. This Estee Lauder double stick foundation has been on my wishlist for a long time, I might have to treat myself to it as an early Christmas gift from me to me. You can buy it at most drugstores. Being a fan of everything Stina Goye, this coat would be fantastic to wear during the festivities – available at Geysir. Nice lingerie is a must for Christmas, this set is available at Yeoman. Everything in the Skinboss product line is all Organic and absolutely amazing. I have been so lucky to try out the products and I can 100 % recommend it to anyone. It is a great gift for your mom, dad or a friend. Available at most drugstores. Urð is an old Icelandic word meaning earth or ground. I got given this soap as a gift the other day and it smells fantastic ( without it being overwhelming ) and looks pretty cool. The soap is made from sea salt which gently exfoliates the skin and natural oils which leave the skin feeling soft and nourished. Available at URÐ. I hope you are all feeling happy and like some of us, getting into the Christmas mood. Don´t forget to follow us on instagram: reykjavikfashion…
