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.

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…


GOLD GOLD GOLD!!

GOLD GOLD GOLD!!

I was driving in the car the other day and heard something on the radio about this new collagen product on the market. I was in a rush and I did not catch the name of the product or where to get it from. Frustrated and in a rush I got out of the car and finished my errands. A few days later I was scrolling through Facebook and low and behold my eye caught a little advert on the ride side corner. Could it be the product I had heard them talking about on the radio? I clicked on the website and I was pretty sure that I had come to the right place. I got a hold of Sigrún who invited me to visit her and learn more about the Colway collagen products. I met with her on a cold day in November and she greeted me with a huge smile and was eager to tell me all about the products. I was fascinated by Sigrún  and her story, she worked in the banking industry 23 years after being introduced to the Colway collagen products while on a vacation in Poland, she quit her job and devoted herself completely to the health industry. We talked for a while and I got to know all about the skin products. Collagen ?  Collagen makes up 75% of the skin, and is what makes the skin strong, thick, supple, and smooth, the natural production of collagen slows down more or less from the age of 25.  I didn’t notice that many wrinkles or fine lines until my early 30´s but it can be different from person to person. Collagen is a connection between blood and cells; it delivers oxygen and important nutrients to our cells keeping them alive and healthy. Natural…


Maintaining Silver Gray Hair !

Maintaining Silver Gray Hair !

I have been sporting different hair colors for the past year. It all started by me going from going completely pink to gray to pink back to being gray again. I find it extremely important to use good hair products especially when you mess with your hair so much. I often get compliments on my hair – probably because people like the look but might be too scared to try it out.  I was a bit skeptical at first and I felt it might be too hard to maintain but after trying it out I can promise you that it is much easier than it seems. All you need are the rights products to suit your hair type and color and you are good to go.  I decided to list my favorite products that I use.                                                       Most of these products are available at sapan.is   Happy weekend everyone – and make sure to follow us on Instagram @reykjavikfashion 


Beauty: Want to get the Summer Glow?

Beauty: Want to get the Summer Glow?

I have been waiting for the summer to start here in Iceland but it seems like this country only has three seasons: winter,spring and fall. We have been lucky in the last week though with a few sunny days but I haven´t had any success in getting that that sun-kissed look. My skin is really pale and takes forever getting any color. I also have a sun allergy so I have to be extra careful in the sun anyway. Now with the Tradesmen’s Weekend (Verslunarmanna helgi) coming up, and many of us are going out camping – we need something to boost our natural glow – don´t you think !?! I had been wanting to try out the Marc Inbane products and last week I was lucky enough to get my hands on the products. I must admit I was a little bit vary because I have tried self tanner before and I almost always end up either looking like an orange or with spots or streaks all over – not a sexy look 🙂 I wanted to tell you my method when using Marc Inbane: I start by using the Black Exfoliate scrub, this is key!!!  The scrub removes all dead skin and is deeply hydrating, which helps your the spray tan last longer and get more even. I recommend this scrub even if you are not planning to do the spray tan. My skin feels more even, smooth and hydrated but it tends to get very dry especially after a bath or shower. Now for the spray tan part: Start by shaking the bottle, some people prefer spraying on to the glove first and then apply to the skin but I prefer spraying onto the skin and even out by using the glove. The glove is also great to…

Instagram Crush

Instagram Crush

This weekend was a relaxing one – spent mostly on the sofa with the computer on my lap – browsing the world wide web. I came across an Instagram account: Micha Gianneli. She is so stunning and you can tell that she is really into posting well produced photos. She is one of the biggest influencers in Australia and her Instagram account is visually gorgeous, you can see she puts a lot of thought into the overall look. I will let the pictures speak for themselves 🙂 Remember to follow us on Instagram: reykjavikfashion Happy chappy Monday 🙂


Skincare: Clinique Redness Solutions Review

Skincare: Clinique Redness Solutions Review

I have told you before about my very sensitive skin. I cannot use just any product, my skin brakes out in hives and turns all red whenever I use products that don´t suit my skin type.  Recently I have also noticed that I have developed rosacea , basically red patches on my face… GREAT!!! Well a friend told me about the Clinique Redness Solutions line and I was very keen to try it out. I have been using the products for little over a week now and I can already see a HUGE difference. I am going to take you through the products that I have been using. Every evening I start by cleansing my face with the Soothing Cleanser. Actually I had to get used to the routine as I admit I can get quite lazy when it comes taking my makeup off in the evening … I know I know , not a good thing especially when it comes to sensitive skin. This cleanser is really smooth and gentle on the skin, I don´t wear waterproof mascara so this cleanser removes all my makeup with ease,  but if you do, you might need to use a special eye-makeup remover. Next I apply the moisturizer. My skin absolutely loves this moisturizer, it drinks in all the moisture and is something that I highly recommend both for summer and winter, it doesn’t leave my skin greasy at all. I apply it both evening and morning.  If I have time, I like to let the moisturizer dry into the skin just a little, before I apply my primer. The primer has a green tint to it set out to correct the color of the skin and smooth it all out, giving it a nice finish. I must admit, I had a…
