I have been obsessed with products, tips and tricks on getting flawless skin since I was a teenager. And now, many years later I feel like I have pretty good knowledge on how to get beautiful skin. I will do many blog posts about skincare and skin tips in the future. But for today I want to share with you my winter skincare routine.

Right now I only use the brand Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr. One of the best brands in my opinion.
The ingredients in the products are well thought about, natural and organic. Most of the products are cruelty free and vegan as well, which is a huge factor for me.
I also believe that by using one brand is better for your skin since they are intended to complement each other.

You can buy products from Kora Organics HERE.

MY WINTER SKINCARE ROUTINE STEP BY STEP

Step 1:
I always start by removing any make up that I have on my face. I use coconut oil and a damp bamboo cloth, I have found that it works best for my skin and removes all make up very nicely. After that my skin is already super smooth.

Step 2:
If I´ve had any make up on, I always wash my face with the cream cleanser 2 times!
First I massage the cleanser gently in to my face with my fingers and then rinse it off. After that I use my clearisonic with the cleanser to really get all the pores nice and clean. And if I went all make up free one day, I would just use my clearisonic one time with a cleanser.
After cleansing my face my skin is all clean and feels baby soft.

Step 3: 
Every second to third day I usually exfoliate my skin, it depends on how I´m feeling that day. Causally I feel like the clearisonic does a pretty good job with removing any dirt and oils from my face. But if I do, I will use the exfoliating cream which is a thin and gentle exfoliation that smooths my skin.

Step 4:
This step I only do once a week! And that is putting on a face mask.
Right now I am using a mud mask that gently purify, detoxifying and replenish the skin. I will do an own blog post about my favorite face mask in the near future.

Step 5:
When my face is fresh and clean I spray the energizing citrus mist all over my face to let dry.
If I feel my skin is dry I use the anti age oil instead. I switch between those two products depending on how I feel my skin is that day. I usually just use the spray.

Step 6:
The final step is of course to moisturize. I use the hydrating day and night cream now in the winter, and it really does hydrate my face tremendously without getting oily or sticky. I am obsessed with that thing. A little goes a long way.

In the morning I just cleanse the face with my fingers and then spray the mist all over the face, followed by gently massaging my face with moisturizer.


So that is my complete skincare routine for the winter.

Now it´s only 21 days until christmas, and we are almost done decorating the apartment.
Linnea are obsessed with the christmas tree and all the lights. She thinks everything is so pretty and loves to show it to everyone. She also likes all the santa ornaments, it´s so cute!
When we are all done with everything, maybe I will show it to you. Maybe even do a christmas apartment tour.

Are you done with decorating for christmas yet? Let me know in the comments!

Just in time for the holiday season I thought I would share some of  my favorite dresses with you.
I am still figuring out what kind of dresses I want to buy for this christmas, but I think I found some cute ones.
Let me know what you think about the ones I picked out!

Wow, I can´t believe this year is almost over, and we now are in December. The time really does fly.
Since this is one of my favorite months, I really want to make this year a little more fun. So, I thought I would make a list over what I want to achieve this month. I have so many things that I want to do, so when I make a list like this, maybe it will be easier to actually do them. Maybe you will find something you want to do as well.
I was thinking about doing monthly goals in the beginning of each months from now on. Let me know if you like that idea.

MY DECEMBER GOALS

  1. Before I got pregnant I was always looking forward to that time when I got children so I could take them to get photographed before christmas. And then give out christmas card to our friends and family. We did not do that last year, and I still regret it today. So I really want to do it this year!
  2. Blog every single day of December. Yep, I am going to blog everyday this month, and I am very excited and have many post that I can´t wait to share with you.
  3. This year I really want to bake cookies for christmas. I haven´t done that in years, therefore I thought that would be a fun activity to do to get in christmas spirit. I am curious to what kind of delicious cookies I can make vegan. Yum.
  4. Book tickets to New York. Yes, me and my boyfriend are going to New York this January! Well, we have thought about it, and since I am writing it here we absolutely need to do it. I can´t wait to show him one of my favorites city in the world.
  5. Take many beautiful pictures. I need wipe away all the dust from my camera, cause I have been lacking on taking pictures lately. Taking pictures is a big passion of mine. I love a good photography.
  6. I would love to take my daughter to baby swimming, I think she would absolutely love that. And maybe take her to a fun playground. She is getting so big now, she just started walking a lot by herself, so it´s definitely a fun time.
  7. Workout. I absolutely need to have this on the list. Since I have the last dance class for this year next week before christmas, I need to keep working out on my own to keep the body going in the holidays. Lifting some weights at the gym 2-3 times a week will probably be enough.

Tell me in the comments what kind of goals you have for this month!
