I have always been happy about my body and the way it looks…. said no one ever!! I fully support anyone that feels the need to change their body in some way in order to feel confident and more self assured as long as it is within a healthy limit although that line can get a bit blurred too.
Everyone has problem areas and for me, no matter my weight, it has always been my double chin so when I got the chance to team up with Húðfegrun I grabbed it. I have tried facial exercises ( mostly in the car on the way to or from work ) and it has been an uphill battle.
I signed up for the recommended six session with Díana at Húðfegrun. She greeted me with a huge smile and all my prejudice and feeling it would be totally “superficial” faded away completely. “Húðfegrun uses radio frequency treatment to attack the fat layer of the skin causing the fat cells to evaporate” explains Díana. “The fat cells will be cleared naturally through the bodies lymphatic channels and it is totally risk free.” The fat cells will be gone forever but that doesn’t mean you have a free pass for the rest of your life. It is very important to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
So what does it feel like? Díana puts a lotion on the area and uses a machine ( see picture ) on the area. It feels warm and comfy, imagine having a heating pad on your face, after that Díana adds a skin tightening treatment to further add to the effects of the treatment. The procedure only takes around 20-30 minutes and thats it.

I came back every two weeks and I had six treatments in total. To be fair I didnt notice that much of a difference in the beginning. It was not until a few weeks after my final treatment that I actually saw a difference and I could not believe it.
So guys if you are like me and want to try this than I can recommend it but I must stress that you might not see any results until a few months into the treatment so patience please but you can see the results below. The pictures are taken four months apart – amazing right?
This post is done in cooperation with Húðfegrun but I contacted them after hearing about their treatments through a friend and was looking to try this particular treatment out. I wrote this post with total honesty.
I am still recuperating after four days of partying at Secret Solstice. With a wide range of artists like Bonnie Tyler, Slayer, Stormzy and Clean Bandit performing, you could easily find the type of music to fit every mood. We met some amazing people on our first day there from Holland, Argentina and Ireland who quickly became our festival buddies.
Here are some pictures from the festival that caught the mood perfectly.
The skies are still grey here in Iceland. I find that my energy levels are not as high when the wind blows and the skies are dark. So, I thought I would share some tips with you, things that I am trying at the moment in order to get a good nights sleep and maintaining my energy throughout the day.
Take a warm bath. Try and relax, put on some meditation podcasts and perhaps throw some lavender oil in the tub or even on your pillow if you do not have time to take a bath.
Even just a few moments of meditation can do wonders.
Make a nice cup of tea ( coffeine free ) and think about how your day went and the positive things that happened.
Take a few deep breaths and think about how you are going to tackle tomorrows tasks.
I have been trying to do some mediation exercises and I feel like they help with the stress and fatigue. Some days are better than others of course but if I manage to get up early in the mornings, have my coffee and listen to the news, I feel like it gives me less stress throughout the day.

The yearly Met Gala was held last night and one can safely say that there was an obvious theme among stunningly dressed attendees. Tiaras, halos and various creative head pieces. What I wouldn´t give to just get to wear one of those dresses for just one day. I will just let the pictures speak for themselves.
Have a great week you guys and dont forget to follow us on instagram: reykjavikfashion
