Do good and good will come to you

Rituals is my new favourite when it comes to skincare. I received this box, full of wonderful stuff for shower- and skincare routine for Christmas this year.

This collection is called Karma. It consist of a foam shower cream, a body scrub, body shower oil, a body butter and finally a body mist. This routine leaves skin well scented and soft for the entire day anad mind fresh and in balance.

It might seem silly, but when you do good for your body, good comes to your mind and spirit. I truly believe when you take care of yourself your mind and well-being is in balance.

I can't wait to explore other collections from Rituals.

New York City Storytelling

New York - the city that's thousand of books, songs, movies and love stories made about it, the city that millions of peaple dream of - and all of that for a reason. There is no word that descries this city better than - unbelievable. 

It was the first time for me to visit the states, and NY was the perfect place to start. I stayed at my friends place in Upper East Side so asking me about hotels is pointless. But as I have a great sense of location, After a few days I already felt as a local, with all of its areas, stress, uptown, downtown and acting like an New Yorker. 

There are shopping stores and streets everywhere in New York, there is also a Starbucks in every corner. My recommendation is to start in an area and then just explore it and walk on. We found some monuments and tourist attractions hat we really wanted to is it so we started the day of by taking a subway to the nearest station and then walk in the area. 

Brooklyn Bridge, Wall Street and One World Centre Memorial place are pretty close. the tall buildings stretching all the way into the clouds are amazing. Time Square is pretty close to Madison Square Garden, Empire State Building, Macy´s and a lot of other stores. Please save money for shopping in US. I was investigating all the shops months ahead, but was still positively surprised as I was walking truth the city. There are so many stores You could never imagine exist. 

If you have the opportunity, and courage, hire a car and drive pff to Jersey, trough the suburbs Queens and Brooklyn. I was fascinated with the suburbs but there is not much to do there. Manhattan is amazing, but it really is u bubble. If going outside this bubble You will see the real American Life, which I did and don't regret it at all. 

Eat at a Whole Foods, an delicious organic store. New York has a lot of organic and vegan restaurants and fast-food look-a-like restaurants. Visit Meatpacking District, south of Manhattan if you want to head for a night out with is really recommended. 

I am too much of an Europe lover to ever imagine living in the sets for a long time, but New York is a place definitely worth visiting  at least once in a lifetime. 

Take Care,

Glossybox January

I love the idea of receiving a box full of lovely beauty products every month and that is why I-'m buying GLOSSYBOX. Even if there are sometimes products or colors I do not use, as a beautylover I find it really exciting to be introduced to new products and labels and that is something I think is of value for me. 

This month, my favorite was the face cleaner from Cetaphil. It is a brand well known in the world but quite new in Sweden and I need to track it down. It makes my skin really smooth and clean. 

The lip pencil from Lip Glide had a really nice formula, maybe not the color I usually go with, but I would definitely use it more during this spring. 

There was a Cream Créme from Royal Apotic, that smells amazing and smoothens the skin. I've mostly used it as a hand cream because it is in a small packaging but it helps dry skin too.

Also a sponge, from Fix Airbrush Blending Sponge. This one is really good, but I am not using sponges that much because I like brushes more, even for creamy make up. 

Last, dark chocolate from Nelie, delicious, but I would love to exchange this for another beauty product. 

How do You guys like Glossybox? Is it totally different in Your countries than this one I received now.
