Right now, I'm using my Cashmere Cleanse Clarisonic brush head, which is super soft and gentle but still cleansing. I figured that I'd try out a new brush head since the standard one is a little too rough for my skin and it's particularly important not to be too harsh on the skin during the summer! Not that there has been too much sun this summer... Anyway, today I'm at work - this is my last day this summer!

I'm heading over to my boyfriend soon to do some stand up paddle boarding at the beach, tan and watch Betty Blue later tonight. Right now, I'm just fixing some practical stuff. There'll be big blog news next week! I'm excited! Here's some summer inspo now that the sun's finally here! Oysters, lobster, champagne, tanning, white clothes, oil and the ocean!

Today we went to Simrishamn to celebrate our 1 1/2 anniversary. We had lunch at Olof Viktors in Glemminge and both of us chose the crayfish foccacia. It's simply amazing! We bought cakes to go and got on the bus to Simrishamn where we went to the beach and shared a Bollinger and had carrot cake and lemon meringue pie. It was super delicious! Unfortunately the cakes were not super pretty after the bus and a walk but they were still yummy (that's why there isn't a picture). We had dinner at "En Gaffel Kort" in Simrishamn, which translates to "A Fork Short" and I had the most delicious cod. Then we went home to a lovely surprise from my Mum; Summerbird Nougat Almonds and a Tisty Tosty bath bomb from Lush!

I got three new Maria Nila hair products in Lyko in Malmoe. One Instant Shine Spray for those dull hair days and post dry shampoo. I also got two types of Frizz Control Oil Spray: one with lingonberry and one with sea-buckthorn. I've only tried the sea-buckthorn and the shine spray so far but I absolutely adore them! Frizz is instantly eliminated and my hair smells and looks super fresh!

Here are some pictures from the Inez & Vinoodh exhibition we went to at Fotografiska a couple of weeks ago. There were so many gorgeous pictures but I've chosen to post some of the prettiest and not too daring ones. The one above is an Hervé Leger commercial from 1995 I think, which is quite cool. Then we have a quite scary but super cool pic, Kate Moss in what looks like a ball gown with a harness and some white poppy flowers.

Just a little throw back to a dinner we had in Côté Jardin in Côte d'Azur. I had such delicious food! I was particularly fond of the starter: chèvre with apple and honey in a puff pastry. And my dessert was lovely too: a meringue with red berries. I had fish as a main course. I'm wearing all white (except for the accessories).

It's such a gloomy summer this year! I actually long for some sun and warmth so I can keep up my tan, meet for drinks with my friends at outdoor cafés, go to the beach and do some stand up paddling. It honestly feels like it's autumn already! Anyway, I got this gorgeous and fabulous scented Victorian Magnolia candle in a super cute boutique called "Bolaget" in Malmoe yesterday. It's from Bougie Parfumée and today definitely feels like a good day to light it.

Today my Mum and I spent most of the day in Malmoe. First, we went shopping in Emporia where I bought some new hair products from Maria Nila. We also snacked on some Vietnamese spring rolls as a late lunch. Then we went shopping in the centre of Malmoe and I got some new bath bombs from Lush and a scented candle that I'll blog about later this week. For dinner, we went to Boulebar, which is a super cozy restaurant and boule place. I had two Fine de Claire oysters, moules frites and a glass of Laurent-Perrier champagne. Everything was heavenly - as usual.

After a super cold and quite rough couple of days at work I was thrilled to have a super relaxing Sunday night. I used one of my Lush bath bombs for a long warm bath before watching some House of Cards with my boyfriend. The bath bomb is called "Big Blue" and it gives the water a Seychelles-ish shoreline colour. It also contains arame seaweed, sea salt, lemon oil and lavender oil, which made it smell lovely and really feel fresh as an ocean.

The newest additions to my Yves Saint Laurent makeup collection... I was looking for the blush brush in shocking pink for a long time until some staff in one of the YSL boutiques told me that they are not sold (in that particular colour) here in Scandinavia. So I felt very lucky to get my paws on one in Sephora in Cannes! I also got the "58 Nuit Blanche" nail polish that I already adore. I'm actually wearing it right now with a pink nail polish underneath and it's quite adorable and glamorous in my opinion. Contrary to most glitter nail polishes - this one actually gives a full layer of sparkle and not just stray glitter. I also got a lip liner in "19 Orange" to go with my beloved classic lipstick; Extreme Coral.

On our way to St. Tropez we passed by a gorgeous, extremely quiet, green, flowery and peaceful little village called Grimaud. The old medieval houses with pastel coloured exterior window shutters seemed untouched by time. Definitely worth a petite visit!

Today we had my Mum's cousin and her husband and granddaughter over. We had lunch at Pålsjö Matbar and it was delicious. Their super cute granddaughter also stayed at our house one night as a mini vacation, which was super cozy. I'm wearing an old Abercrombie & Fitch dress and new nail polish from Yves Saint Laurent in shade 58 "Nuit Blanche".
