I haven’t used Tremble blush from Illamasqua in a really long time and the other day I found it in a drawer. Bliss and glory! It’s a beautiful pale cool orange (leaning pink) which looks GREAT with a sheer orange lip.

I also tried a new mascara, it was hideous. Smudges/runs from any little moisture and clumps like crazy.

Outfit of the day! I bought new shoes from Monki today and I friggin love them. Dressy yet comfortable, weird yet classy, and of course synthetic so that I won’t have to wear my animal friends. I had a good hair as well, I like breaking strict looks up with trashy waves. My official hair muse: Alexa Chung!

LUSH Karma Komba solid shampoo

Liksom med mitt balsam så har jag på sistone bytt ut mitt schampo. När håret blivit längre så känner jag, trots att jag har samma hårtyp, att håret börjar kräva en aning mer återfuktning för att hålla glansen. I Love Juicy har börjat tappa stinget och av en semi-slump kom jag över en av LUSH schampokakor vid namn Karma Komba under senvintern. Den tog slut efter sisådär fem månader och nu har jag stämplat in och köpt mig en ny utan en tanke på att testa något annat. 89 kr i butik eller på!

Karma Komba är ett schampo i fast form, du gnuggar det antingen mellan händerna eller rakt på huvudet (vilket jag gör) och masserar sen in i håret precis som vanligt. Den fasta formen bidrar till att schampot räcker så himla länge, jag tvättar håret var annan eller var tredje dag och använde som sagt denna i nästan ett halvår. Schampot har LUSH klassiska Karma-doft, en kryddig apelsindoft med patchouli och tall. Vill man så kan man för 39 kronor köpa en burk som schampokakan passar i, jättebra när man är ute och reser! Se bara till att kakan torkar innan du stänger in den.


As with my conditioner I recently exchanged my conditioner. When the hair gets longer I feel that, even though I’ve got the same hair type, I need slightly more moisture to keep the shine up. I Love Juicy just got beaten by Karma Komba, a shampoo bar from LUSH that I tripped over during the last months of winter. I finished it in about five months and now I just walked in and bought another one without even thinking about trying something else. £5.25 in stores and at if you’re in GB, otherwise, check your local LUSH!

Karma Komba is a solid shampoo which you either rub between your hands or straight onto your head (which I do) and then massage it in as usual. The solid bar helps it last a really long time, I wash my hair every other or every third day and I almost used this for half a year.  Karma Komba has the cult classic Karma scent, a spicy orange scent with patchouli and pine. If you want you can buy a tin for the bar which is great when you’re travelling, just let it dry before you cover it up!
