I'm super excited to finally be home in Sweden for the two coming weeks. Traveling back home is always such a treat! Family, friends, the fantastic food, nature, fresh air, cleanliness and oh, this time, I'm also blessed with the unbeatable Swedish summer. I'm a pretty seasoned traveler and know how to pack the right essentials without overpacking. I think I learned that during my modeling days when sitting on a flight was more common than sitting in a car, haha! My philosophy is to bring fewer things that are my top picks and can be combined endlessly, than more things that are a maybe-I'll-use-this-that-night kind of things. When it comes to my beauty products, I don't compromise because of the fact that my skin needs even more TLC when I'm traveling. Here's a pick of some products that come with me no matter what! Some of the products are relatively new, but already made the cut for as my top selection. The Sulwhasoo Snowise Ex Brightening Serum I've only been using for ten days, but I can already say it's working miracles on my skin. It's making my skin look more even and gives a magical and dewy glow. So impressed with this brand overall. The Koreans know their skincare, that's for sure. Another newcomer is the Amore Pacific Time Response Eye Renewal Cream that simply is THE eye cream. Let me just put it plain and simple: it works! Yes, for dark circles, yes for puffy eyes, and yes for dry patches and fine lines. It's not cheap, probably the most expensive eye cream I've had ($240), but a little goes a long way, and hey - if it works for dark circles I dont care what it costs! The third newcomer in my skincare routine is a Scandi brand called Nuori. Their products are also a-m-a-z-i-n-g.  So good that I'll write a whole review the coming week so stay tuned! Another thing you guys, I'm not going to be translating my posts to Swedish anymore. So sorry to all my Swedes, but it's just too time-consuming for a busy gal like me! Hope you'll still enjoy reading in english.  XO, Alia
