April is in full bloom, which means new season collections has dropped, which in turn means – a very excited Anneli! When that said, I haven´t been shopping relentlessly, but been investing wisely in new season buys which will serve me for years to come. Some of these include…
Spring/Summer season means fringes and tassels galore for moi – so there is no wonder why there was little hesitation to click to buy this stunning suede camel bag from super chic French brand Sezane. Obsessed.
One my latest beauty must-have´s – Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask – which is like a facial on-the-go. It helps reduce wrinkles, smoothes, brightens, lifts and hydrates in an instant; meaning it´s the perfect pick-me-up or pre-event beauty essential.
I am currently keeping my hair nourished, natural and super shiny with the newly launched Kérastase Aura Botanica – which is a super gentle range, using 96% natural origin ingredients. With Coconut Oil and Argan Oil, this light shampoo, conditioner and hair oil set leaves my hair squeaky clean (not greasy), allowing me to wash it every day, yet keeping it super soft and natural looking. Love it.
I am all about injecting Vitamin C into my skincare regime at the moment, so naturally I jumped straight onto Clinique´s new Vitamin C range – which includes the Fresh Pressed Daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C (a super potent booster to mix in with your AM & PM moisturiser/serum for brighter, smoother and younger skin), and the Fresh Pressed Renewing Vitamin C Powder Cleanser (activates with water, for an instant, awakened, purified and brighter complexion). I tried both for the course of 7 days, and my skin was so much better, and most importantly brighter, with much less pigmentation.
I have switched my regular self-tan for something a bit better for your skin – with Tan Luxe´s range. They´ve removed all the highly pigmented DHA, and instead they´ve created transparent tanning to deliver the most natural, golden tan with no streaks and smell. It´s super easy to apply in it´s water base formula, and never dries out the skin. I´ve opted for Illuminating Self-Tan Drops (for face), and Hydrating Self-Tan Water (for body) – both in the Light/Medium shade, giving me a really natural glow throughout Spring.
I am super excited to be a part of the official Super Elixir #SuperElixirSwap challenge – which involves swapping your usual sweet cravings/treat for a scoop of their Nourishing Protein – be it a smoothie, protein ball, raw slice, or a shake on-the-go. It may be a daily swap, it may be once a week – but so far, and since I´ve started exercising again, I´ve been having it every afternoon! It´s the most delicious protein powder I have come across, and I personally love blending 1 scoop with almond or oat milk, some coconut flakes and cacao nibs.
One of my favourite moisturisers, the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream – has just launched with a new and improved version, containing SPF 30. My prayers were answered! This cream is a pot of pure hydration, creating plump and dewy skin – what more do you need?
When it comes to earrings, I´ve pretty much been wearing these gorgeous two styles from Finery for the past few months – they’re the perfect addition to my otherwise casual day-time look. And so reasonable!
Killer statement slides from ASH in black and silver leather. The perfect transitional shoes from day-to-night – love!
The best investment this year so far – these black leather Chanel Espadrilles (a gift from the hubby in Paris). So chic, understated and super comfortable, and will no doubt be with me for years, and years to come.
Because I already have far too many black sunglasses than I´d like to admit, and these baby pink ones from REISS were too cute to resist… (pink available in store).
Last but not least; as I missed out on last season´s navy and red version of this dress from Zara – I was even more excited scooping up the black and grey version! Meant to be, I say!
