The Tangle Teezer

by Hanne on June 23, 2013

Hi girlies! So this is not a brand new product on the market, but it is new to my beauty collection – which makes it natural for me to talk about. I had already read a lot about this hairbrush at different blogs but didn’t get to try it myself until a few weeks ago when a hair stylist I worked with used it on me. I had a lot of products in my hair so I thought combing it would hurt and make me shed a lot like usual, but it didn’t and it was surprisingly gentle!

Although my hair is fine I have a lot, and it tangles pretty easily. I love that it doesn’t pull on your hair – just detangles it with a minimum of hair loss. It is also super gentle on my scalp. I really like that I can use this brush in the shower to spread out conditioner or treatments. It is also great for traveling as it’s so compact and light.

I have the Tangle Teezer Compact Styler in Golden Goddess and I bought mine at Boots but you can also find it here. I paid around £12-13 for mine and I do think the price is a bit much for something that looks and feels quite cheap, but I would totally buy it again if my current one breaks! :)

What about you guys? Have you tried the Tangle Teezer? What’s your favorite detangling hairbrush?

Back to being a part-time blogger

by Hanne on June 20, 2013

Hell0 sweethearts! I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since my last blog post, time flies and I’ve just put a very busy period with exams and moving behind me. Yes, I have moved out of my apartment in Oslo, I loved that place but it was just too expensive to keep with all my traveling, I was never there. So I must say I feel kind of like a nomad right now, moving from one place to another. I have decided to focus more on modeling than I have the last year and that’s also why I travel so much.

At the moment I’m in London but will probably travel to another destination in Europe before I spend my summer holidays in Norway with my family and friends. So, a lot of things happening right now, exciting and nerve wracking at the same time!

Finally I have time for blogging again, whoop! I probably wont be able to blog like I used to with posts every day but I hope you will still continue to follow me. I am already preparing my next blog posts, I can’t wait to show you some of the new products I’ve discovered here in London.

As it’s been a while since you’ve heard from me I guess some of you may have some questions, so feel free to ask! I’ll try to answer them in a separate post. :)

Not enough time…

by Hanne on May 20, 2013

Hello sweethearts! Hope you had a wonderful Pentecost weekend, I’ve spent the weekend in beautiful and sunny Lillehammer with my family and boyfriend. This picture is taken on Saturday on my balcony in Oslo. The last couple of days have been amazing here with 25 degrees and sunny!

I guess most of you have realized that I’ve had a really busy period lately, therefor the lack of blog posts. I really wish I had more time but with work, travelling and two upcoming exams I just haven’t had time and had to put my blog at the bottom of the list, unfortunately. I have my first exam on Thursday and then the next the week after, I’m also moving out of my apartment in Oslo so I have such a stressful time right now.

So, this means it will continue to be a bit quiet on the blog, but when all of this is over I’ll try to go back to blogging like I used to. Hope you guys understand.. :)

You can still follow me on Instagram where I post pictures almost every day, my username is @byhanne.

The last drops #2

by Hanne on May 13, 2013

Hello beauties! Hope you had a nice weekend! I’m in beautiful Trondheim, I came on Friday night, surprising my best friend who is pregnant! Anyways, I’ve gathered together a few products that I’m about to finish, here are my thoughts about them.

Redken Body Full Shampoo
I wasn’t a huge fan of this shampoo at first but I’ve grown to love it. The shampoo definitely does what it’s supposed to do – it gives volume to my fine, limp hair – but it can be a bit drying in the winter months. I love that it leaves my hair full of volume, light and airy. Definitely a good volume shampoo for summer.

L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream
I love this hand cream and it’s one of the few products I keep repurchasing. It has a lot of moisture, absorbs easily with no stickiness and has a pleasant scent. After use my hands feel moisturized for hours and as an added bonus, it seems to hold up very well to hand washing!

Phyto Phytobaume Hydration Conditioner
This conditioner has also become a staple in my beauty collection. It is definitely one of the best conditioners I’ve tried for my thin, fine hair. What I lover about it is that it conditions just enough so that I can untangle my hair without problems, but without weighing the hair down. This probably works best on fine hair, so if you have fine hair like me I would definitely give it a try. It does not weight it down at all like a lot of other silicone based conditioners does.

Dr. Hauschka Quince Day Cream
This cream is light-weight but intensely moisturizing. I love the citrusy sweet scent and my skin feels really hydrated after use and looks radiant. It also leaves a great base for foundation. I just realized this cream has a lot of alcohol in it (why Dr. Hauscka?) so I’m not sure I will repurchase. Also I think it’s better suited for cool weather so I might wait until autumn before I repurchase.

What about you guys? Which products did you recently use up?

One day at work

by Hanne on May 7, 2013

Last week I did a lookbook for a small boutique shop and Yesterday I received their “behind the scenes” pictures and thought I’d share them with you – so that you can get a sneak peek into my life as a model. Normally lookbooks can be quite boring as the poses are very straight and simple, but this one was different and I think I’ll get lots of cool pictures for my book.

The lookbook was for Avenue Boutique and they have lots of different brands, definitely worth checking out if you find yourself in Richmond, London! The photographer was the amazing Joseph Sinclair, such a good photographer to work with! :)
