Regal Rose Celest necklace

I rarely wear jewellery at all, and I write even less about it, but when I do – REGAL ROSE! I have been eyeing the beautiful Celest necklace over the last year without getting around to ordering it, and after Christmas when I landed a discount code I finally clicked the button. I’m so happy I did, it is gorgeous!

A few days ago I was surprised with a second discount code in my inbox, use FRIEND22ZEMAIL at to get 10% off your order!

And in case it’s unclear: I’m not affiliated with them (you know I would tell you if I were). ;*

What have I been wearing this spring/summer/fall?

How about an insane outfit spam post? Well here you go! Here are most of my outfit posts that I’ve posted on Instagram (@KillerColours) since spring.

Things this photo collage made me think:

- Holy shit I wear so much yellow (and not just “would like to wear yellow more often”).
- Holy shit I wear scarves all year round.
- Holy shit I wear that dotted sweater all the time.
- Holy shit no one cleans that elevator mirror.

Shimmering Sun

Todays look! I layered two lippies (a bright orange and a pinky coral red) so the lips would match the rest of my look, a yellow dress and coral red nails, and it turned into a bright and warm coral red. I should have something that looks just like this but without all the mixing, shouldn’t I? The eyeshadow matches aswell, a super soft wash of a bright peach with gold shimmer. I love to wear a consistent colour theme.

Glossy claws, purrty lips, serious eyebrows and a passion for critical thinking. Beauty blogger from Gothenburg, Sweden.

My name is Viola Holmgren and I've been representing Swedish beauty bloggerism (yes. we're a cult) since 2008. I focus on cruelty free beauty and I love the feeling of finding cool products that have gone under the radar.

Makeup doesn't have rules. The only person who decides what's right or wrong and if you're wearing it or not is you, and that's where my job as a blogger comes in handy. Use my experience as a guide or an inspiration towards finding your own way.

And just to clarify, all reviews and opinions are my own, there is no evil baby demon on my left shoulder who is bribing, forcing or possessing me to write. Reviews are best written in honesty!
