Start med jute.

My favourite skincare products. This post contains affiliate links, which means by purchasing through these links I get a percentage of the sales. Click the image to go to the product.

I love massaging my hair and messing up my hair with this brush. Bonus tip: flicking the spikes is the best ASMR sound and feels really good.

I barely have any dead skin cells and my itchyosis vulgaris skin is healed – and one of the things I do is use moroccan soap with a kessa glove.

Using a jade roller is a new skincare step for me. I put it in the freezer to de-puff my face in the morning.

I love using argan oil on face, neck and back of hands every morning and/or evening while massaging my skin.

I use gua sha either in the morning or evening – sometimes both. I use a lot of oil and focus on the areas where there is tension.

My go-to cream for body and hands. It is thick but blends into the skin and this is the only cream that has worked for my extreme dry skin.

Castor oil is a very thick oil, which perfect for growing eyelashes and eyebrows, in split ends or simply as a natural lip gloss. I always have a bottle in my bag with me for cracked hands or lips.

Normally I avoid perfume, but this vitamin C serum has really improved my skin, making it look more alive. I use it in the evening.

Every week or so I use my derma roller followed by a massage with argan oil. It has improved my skin texture, removed fine lines and already the next day my skin looks more firm.

The only body scrub I have used that is really good for dry skin and ichthyosis as it is anti bacterial. The small grains also don’t dissolve in the water like many body scrubs.

My newest obsession: vegan tinted lip balm, it comes in multiple colors!

An exellent exfoliating mask that helps remove dead skin cells and brightens and makes the skin look more alive.

This is my favourite overnight mask. It leaves my skin soft and firm and you only need a thin layer. You can massage it into the skin when applying and rinse it off in the morning. The fragrance is derived from natural sources.

Jolene lace top

  1. Follow the pattern for Jolene top
  2. Use a 4,5 mm hook and superfine cotton: 50 g = 160 m. I used 46 g for my size S/M incl. bra cups.
  3. Use Ternion stitch and make them ON TOP of each other if you want it like my version.
  4. Increase 2 per row: Increase by making 1 ternion stitch in the same stitch: *dc, sc, ch*
  5. If you want you can make an edge on each side with approx. 2-3 sc around every row.
  6. Bra cups: If you don’t want to use nipple covers make a small version of a bra cup (try it on as you go). It just needs to be big enough to cover a little bit more than the nipple area.
  7. Put on the top and secure the bra cups with a safety pin where you want them.
  8. Then sew them in place through the stitches.
  9. For the cowl you can simple tie a piece of yarn around the rows and weave them in.

Josie Y2K handbag

Hook: 3 mm
Yarn: 2 strands of cotton, size 1. Link here (affiliate)
Stitches: single crochet (sc) and half double crochet (hdc)
Edging: 1 strand of cotton, size 1, 50 g = 160 m.
Colors: light green, white and black

1. Follow Josie bag pattern
2. Make 39 stitches and a total of 36 rows (incl. first and last)
3. The bottom corners are approximately 1 cm/2 rows
4. Close the sides so there are 6 rows more on the back
5. On the middle of the row (about 17 stitches in from each side) you make 5 hdc stitches and 5 rows.
6. The straps are: 4 hdc and 68 rows.
7. Sew them in place over half of the bag (approx. 8 rows) on each side.
8. Crochet an edge with sc in black yarn over the top edge of the bag, on top of the stitches on first row of hdc on the square (as seen on the last photo), as well as around the edge on the strap.
9. Finish with crocheting an edge on the bottom of the bag and up the sides. You crochet on top of the stitches by folding the bag and crocheting around or on top of the stitches or loops.
10. Finally sew a press on button or magnetic button onto the inside of the square and the same place on the bag so it matches. Now you can weave in the ends.

Mati Striped Mini Scarf

  1. Follow the long version in the pattern for Mati mini scarf – use same yarn and hook recommended
  2. Choose 2, 3 or 4 different colors – use them randomly and don’t cut them of, just bring them with you as you go
  3. Instead of crocheting in the back and front loop, crochet through both loops.
  4. Remove approx. 5 regular rows (no inc or dec) from the middle of the scarf as well as 8 regular rows from the beginning and end of the scarf, making the full scarf shorter in length
  5. Finish by crocheting a single crochet edge – approx 1 sc per row, spread out – chain 1 and the point of the scarf to keep the pointed shape.
