I almost can't believe I am actually introducing myself here on afterDRK.
Summer has officially kicked off yesterday and that - more often than not - only leaves one big question... Who’s ready?! Most women immediately start to sweat (both literally and figuratively) when the first rays of sunshine hit town. Our bodies are never ready and finding that perfect bikini or swimsuit is like finding a bobby pin when you need one. Regarding that first 'problem', we obviously all have our insecurities, but I do believe we should definitely be more confident and embrace our beautiful selves. I mean we don't need to be completely #flawless (my dearest Beyoncé) to be pretty.
Stockholm based beauty Caroline Sandström - fashion and beauty editor for Metro and Metro Mode AND freelance stylist - has that admiringly simple Scandinavian style figured to perfection. As a beauty editor she comes across the newest products and craziest trends, but manages to stick to her favorites. Time for a beauty talk.
Amsterdam based eyewear brand Ace & Tate (you might remember their frames from this story?!) recently launched a second chapter of Summer frames called Reckless Summer and I have to admit it's hard for me to not fall in love with a few of their frames every time they launch a new drop.
Reckless Summer is all about bold and contrasting color ways in the form of three new frame designs - Capri, Cayman and Sebastian - in colors such as Cosmic Red and Bondi Blue. Names that do make you want to travel, what's not to like? And so I took four of my favorites to places I have visited in the past two weeks and it looked a little something like this.
Time to turn the tables around. We’ve been serving you beauty advice for quite some time now. Today we’re doing the exact opposite by playing around with interior beauty. A rendez-vous between the comfort of home and creative cosmetics, with some extra attention for the sense of smell. And guess what... No makeup remover needed!
What’s on our mind - and nose?
