A pair of denim has been a staple in my closet for the longest time. It’s a piece that I reach for quite frequently and especially so during this time of the year. Going from summer to winter in Norway means that it’s quite cold which means we need to layer up with warm stockings, and that’s where denim come into play!
Using a pair of denim works good for pretty much everything imaginable from blouses to sweaters, cute with sneakers and boots, yet equally appealing with a simple white t-shirt & a leather jacket.
On this post, I decided to show you how I like to achieve an effortless yet stylish look.

Every time I look for new blouses or sweaters I go for pieces that have little details, bright colors and makes my figure look good.

For instance, here I decided to use This blouse that has a lot going on even though it's dark.
The dots and the ruffles on the chest area and the end of the sleeves attracts a lot of attention.
This look could be easily changed to a night look putting a pair of heels, a clutch and a lovely red lipcolor.

I had the opportunity to have a quick interview with the talented Henrik , given this opportunity I just had to ask some of his best beauty secrets and what kind of look is trendy for this holiday season.
Here are some of them & the products he recommended.

1.Taking care of the skin with the right products is number one rule to achieve a glowy and flawless canvas.
The earlier you start, the better.
2. Simplicity is the key while multi-using the products you already have.
3. Don't be afraid to play with colors.
4. A "No makeup" makeup Look is effortless & a great way to make your face stand out.

1. Energie De Vie exfoliating face mask that hydrates and exfoliates the skin. The results is a purified, smooth & glowing skin.
2. Advance Génifique Sensitive Serum is particularly suited to boost the skin with pure Vitamin E and ferulic acid which protects the skin from pollution; leaving the skin radiant and ready for your makeup routine.
This serum can penetrate deeply into the skin, thereof you are able to carefully apply on your makeup if you need an extra boost during the day.

-How to Achieve A natural look-

 

1. To achieve a nice and glowy skin is important to use a foundation that provides sufficient moisture, and the right amount of coverage.
-Foundation sticks can be very scary for some, but they are very easy to work with.
The new stick foundation from Lancôme can be used for that natural look or cover up those spots you need. At the same time, it gives a matte finish.

If you are adventurous with your makeup, you can also do contouring with it with a darker shade.

1. Lancôme stick foundation 035 / 2. Lancôme Olympia's Wonderland Palette / 3. Rôsy Plump

- Multi-using your products is a big plus!
Here I'm using the blush of the Olympias palette on my crease to have a flirty and sweet look while keeping the look very natural.
- Apply a gloss to your lips & you are ready for a lunch with friends or a day at work!

- Night Time Look -

 

Since we are getting into holiday season transitioning from your daytime to evening look can be sometimes a little bit stressful.
Henrik's quickest tips are to use strong color on the lips that gives a nice radiance.
In addition, you can put the focus on the eyes.

- Start by using an eye pencil on your eyelid and smudge it out with a brush to create an effortless smokey eye.
- Apply eyeliner.
- Go ahead and apply the lipcolor you want to rock for a night out or christmas dinner.

1. Lancôme Crayon Khôl/ 2. Matte Shaker- 189 Kiss Me Cherie / 3. Grandiôse Liner- Black.

Using matte shaker 272 energy peach.

- An effortless Parisian Look -

1, Start by using a primer.
Makeup primer is the base for foundation or face makeup that allows it to go on smoother and last longer.
During the winter my skin tends to get very dry; here I'm using a hydrating primer.

2. Go ahead and apply a concealer on the areas you need to cover or light up.

3. Using the Gigi Hadid palette Warm tone, I went ahead and blended the light brown & the golden color together to give my eyes some dimension.

5. For a more subtle highlight, I used the liquid golden highlighter.
It gives a lovely and warm glow on the skin.

6. As you might know... Eyeliner is a must for me.
For a more precise angle of your winged liner, draw the flick toward your eye instead of away from it.
Drawing in a backward direction will make it easier to determine where the end of the flick will be.

-The Jetsetter Palette

 

7. A lighter way to contour is to use a bronzer.
How you might use it:
-On the sides of your forehead to make your hairline appear more narrow.
-Along your hairline to create the illusion of a lower hairline.
-Under your jawbone to make your jawline appear more narrow.
-The area below your cheekbones starting from your ears and ending in the middle of your cheeks.

Sophisticated & Romantic look...

I wanted to do this post because I know that we are all feeling extremely vulnerable in these insane times. It has been such a stressful, sad weeks and I know we can all benefit from the comfort and relaxing right now. I decided to gather some tips on how to de-stress and what to do if you want to untangle and take a day for yourself. You most definitely deserve it. ❤

1. Reading, whether it be an actual book or through social media, can really help during stressful times. Having a book to take you away from the world a little is always so nice, especially in a bath or after a nice shower. Read your favorite novel, watch your favorite movie, and feel happiness.
Get connected to it.
Also, though it really depends on how you feel, I know there is so much going on in social media that it might be smart to take a little break from it and focus on the little activities that give you happiness. Almost like ignorance is bliss in a way. Or, if reading social media makes you feel better, do it! It really depends on what you prefer :-) I just know that, not even during this specific time, social media can sometimes make us even more stressed. Technology is always a good thing to take our minds away from time to time.

2. When there's so much going on and when we have anxiety, we tend to neglect our bodies and we might even forget to eat or drink water. But, this ends up taking a terrible toll because when we are stressed, our body is using up even more energy. It is really important to nourish with nice foods, veggies, and water because it is when our body really needs it.
Make a smoothie, have an apple, drink extra water. We need to pay attention to what our bodies are telling us and what we are neglecting in that moment. It will also make you feel better not only physically, but mentally as well.
It's is always important to listen to your body and soul. Especially during a hectic time ❤︎ also other little tips to help include taking a bath, giving yourself little massages, having green tea, and taking care of your skin.

3. Take a hot shower, slip into your favorite pajamas, have some water, and snuggle into bed with your laptop or book or journal. I know this is something so simple, but feeling comfy/cozy will make your mind feel so relaxed. It is great to unwind at night like this.
It will make your body feel serene too. Open your window, get a little fresh air. Clear your mind of those negative thoughts. Watch a funny show on Netflix. It'll make your heart feel much happier ❤︎

I really hope this post helped you in de-stressing and maybe even convinced you to just take a little time away and dedicate an hour to yourself. It will really help in the long run. Also, if anyone wants to talk, please don't hesitate in sending me a message. IG @GAMBITSKY

...look to wear at work or lunch with friends...

Just because the temperature is dropping doesn’t mean we want to quit using some of our summer pieces already.
One of the saddest things about transitioning from summer to fall is the loss of the flirty, lightweight dresses that we basically lived in during the warmest months of the year.
A great way to get more mileage out of your summer wares is to layer.

The key of layering is to combine the short, sleeveless, lightweight pieces from the summer with the heavier pieces you need during fall for example Jeans, sweaters, leather jackets & scarfs.

On this post I decided to give a small guide of how to combine the dress in two different ways.
Since mostly of the dresses I have are "wrap dresses" I simply use them with jeans and a blouse, just like on the picture. It gives me the option to play with accessories and style it very easily with a leather jacket or a coat.

...The Party Look...

Another idea for busy days at work and none time to go home before an event or party.
Pack in your bag a pair of tights and a pair heels of choice.
Tights instantly turn any dress into a fall-appropriate wardrobe choice.
Here I decided to show the look without the tights since the day was beautiful and a bit warm.

Every girl should own at least a pair of black heels s and a leather jacket. You won't want to leave home without these must have staples.

LADY IN RED

Some days ago I was sporting this extremely chic look for a coffee date with my lovely friend @BEYOUI .
Some of you may know that I'm the biggest fan of leather jackets, and I felt I needed to use my jackets as much as possible before the weather gets too cold.
I like my looks to be chic but also have a bit of an edge. Therefore, this look was perfection. The red beret, and blouse gave it that feminine and youthful touch while the leather material gave it a tougher feeling. I'm also completely obsessed with this kind of looks lately.

I paired the whole look with my heels from Sandro Paris, a leather bag, and a pair of sunglasses from Rayban. I guess you could say that red was the narrative thread in this look!

Sensual and Sophisticated...
Though I’ve been talking quite a bit about beauty recently, and especially the power makeup has to complete a given look, I haven’t really addressed how important I feel fragrance is. For me, fragrance is an unforgettable accessory.
It’s an integral part of who I am and unlike make-up, which changes depending on occasion or outfit, is a signature and a constant. Much more than a lingering trail of sweetness you leave behind, in a way, fragrance is an external representation of who you are, or even would like to be.
Now, I fully admit that I do change my signature scent from time to time. Yet, because my relationship with fragrance is so personal, it happens quite seldom and often represents a change or a significant event in my life. Recently, I’ve made a switch to a bolder, vanilla & rose scent from Emporio Armani,

Because It's you.
Inspired by a love story; the female and male fragrance have an alliance that balance & empower each other, as symbol of powerful love. I absolutely love how light and refreshing this vibrant, passionate and lovely this fragrance is.

Get it HERE.

When I was a kid; My lovely mother used to dressed me with tracksuits and matching sneakers. She picked up very carefully the colors; the material and the brand that my siblings and I would wear for the weekends.
My love and interest for sneakers and street wear has always been there since I was a kid. Today this interest has taken another side; discovering new brands and new items to put into my collection has become a hunt and a forever passion that I like to combine with into my “other kind” of style.

Combining different clothing pieces is something that is very fun to experiment with. This skirt is very preppy but instead of wearing it with heels and a blouse; I decided to wear a comfortable sweater & my favorite pair of sneakers.

If you decide to wear clothes that doesn’t show your body so well; try to balance your outfit with one piece that has a tight fit on your body and the other one has to be a loose fit. For example If you wear a pair of skinny jeans, use a loose fit on your blouse or t-shirt, this way the styling will emphasize the best of your body.
