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. Be kind to yourselves and others and do not forget to follow us on Instagram HERE!  love

Crowns Tiaras and stunning head pieces at Met Gala

The yearly Met Gala was held last night and one can safely say that there was an obvious theme among stunningly dressed attendees. Tiaras, halos and various creative head pieces. What I wouldn´t give to just get to wear one of those dresses for just one day. I will just let the pictures speak for themselves. Have a great week you guys and dont forget to follow us on instagram: reykjavikfashion  


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.

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
