New in: Makeup from H&M




I've heard good things about H&M's new and improved makeup so I went to check it out and I was pleasantly surprised! I liked the eyeshadows, blushes, lipglosses and there were sooo many nice nailpolish colours that it was difficult to choose which one to buy. And I really like the packaging too especially the nailpolish one and the outside paper packaging (maybe not so important but anyway, ha ha). The false eyelashes look really good but I have yet to try them, I have to get back to you with my opinion on them! All the rest above I really like! So if you are on a budget this is a great alternative! Personally I probably wouldn't buy the foundation, concealer or brushes from that range but there are many other nice products.

The colours above is:
Nailpolish: Red Carpet
Eyeshadow: Baci Di Dama
Blush: Rosy Brown
Lipgloss: Milk And Honey

4 Holiday Hairstyles




Happy Holidays everyone! My cousin came by and wanted me to do a braid on her and of course I went nuts and did four different ones to choose from. She has medium length hair and all of these are perfect for that lenght. She kept the milkmaid braid one and it looked great on her with her fringe framing the face.

We keep on celebrating the holidays in Sweden and are having a great time catching up with everyone. Today we´re going bowling with my brother's family and our parents. Game on!


Holiday Glam




Glam up the Holidays with some glitter and gold! Whether it´s a nailpolish or a headpiece make the holidays more glamorous with some sparkles!

Me and my family are in Sweden celebrating and we´re hoping for some snow! But of course most important is that we are together with our families and friends enjoying the holidays!

Nora looks so adorable in this ladder braid! It´s such a cute hairstyle for girls. I made a tutorial for it on DivineCaroline.com, you can check it out here. It´s a bit tricky at first but hang in there and you shall succeed!



Three strand fishtail braid





This three strand fishtail braid is my current favourite braid! It´s so pretty and intricate looking but actually not very difficult at all to make. You need a lot of hair for it though so I´m using my hair extensions from Rapunzel of Sweden.


November sun



November has been an amazing month here in Greece with sunny and warm days! I spend my days with Lily who is now 13 months and we have the best time together really enjoying the warm weather. In the afternoons when my oldest daughter Nora comes home from school we often go to the parks to play or for a stroll and something to eat along the sea.

Dutch Fishtail Braid

How gorgeous is Josie in this dutch fishtail braid! To get extra length and volume I used hair extensions on her from Rapunzel of Sweden. It was so much fun when we were taking the pictures next to my pool, my cats just wouldn't leave us alone. They were playing with Josie's kimono and I was afraid they would destroy it so I tried to keep them away while taking the photos, not the easiest thing to do!


Rimming the waterline




Rimming the waterline is a great way to either give your eyes a more intense look or to open up the eye. Choose black to make your eyes stand out and appear more intense, one of my favourite eye pencils to use is Pro Longwear Eye Liner in Black Ice from MAC. Choose a light pencil to open up the eyes and to give the illusion of bigger eyes or if you like me have a baby or toddler that keeps you up at night it will help you to look less tired. My favourite is Eye-Iluminating Duo from Youngblood, one side has a matte finish and the other side has a shimmer finish. I like to wear the matte side for everyday and it´s also great to use as an eye shadow base. The shimmery side is nice when you have a matte neautral makeup and then some shimmer on the waterline or you can use it in the inner corner of the eye to brighten it up.



Double Fishtail Braid

This double fishtail braid is not at all as complicated as it looks. It´s two fishtail braids that you pull on the outer edges to create volume and then bobby pin them together on the back of the braids to make them look like one braid. If your hair hasn´t the length or the volume you would like just use some clip on extension, the ones I´m using on Josefine are from Rapunzel of Sweden.


Double Lace Braid




This is a pretty, everyday hairstyle perfect to wear to work or school. Once you get the hang of it it won´t take you long to make. Click here for the full tutorial...


Milkmaid Braid




My friend Ada came over the other day and I always take the opportunity to braid her hair and update my Instagram. This hairstyle turned out so pretty so I decided to do a tutorial on it. It´s wearable even if you are a bit older because this version of the milkmaid braid is more subtle (even though I´m a firm believer that you should wear your hair however you want whithout letting your age hold you back!). Follow the steps below to achieve the look:

1. Make a dutch braid starting just above your ear. Braid it around your head in the back incorporating hair only from up (like a lace braid). Leave some hair underneath for the second braid. Incorporate hair until you reach the next ear then braid the rest of it and secure with an elastic. Pull on the braid for extra volume. I pulled quite a bit and you can always use some bobby pins to keep the braid in place if you need to pull a lot to create volume, just pin them underneath the braid so they don´t show.

2. Now start a loose dutch braid on the other side of the head going parallel with the other braid. Incorporate again hair from up. When you reach the other ear continue to braid the rest and secure with an elastic.

3. Take the braid and drape it over your head securing it in place with bobby pins.

4. Do the same on the other side. Hide the end under the opposite braid and do the same with the end of the first braid.


New in







This is my newest makeup additions perfect for fall! The MAC palette has 9 cool colours and is a very versatile palette with many gorgeous colours perfect to create a smokey eye with. You can see a more detailed picture here! I have been wanting makeup from Charlotte Tilbury for a very long time and finally I bought this beautiful palette called the The Rock Chic and I wasn´t disappointed! It´s four amazing colours that you easy can take from day to night. For a tutorial on how to use it check out the creator herself making one of her iconic looks here! The blush is from Kjær Weis and is an amazing blush that gives you a healthy glowing look perfect for fall when you need some life to your face. It´s definately on the priceyer side but it´s organic and good for the skin so I bought it as a little treat to myself. You can find it here.

My favourite look for fall is to use one of the palettes to create a smokey eye and then pair it with a stain from my favourite plum lipstick Rebel from MAC. To create the stain you take some lipstick on your finger and then dab it onto your lips, this gives a less dramatic and more natural pop of colour like you just came in from the cold.
