The Barbie Doll Look

13 June 2015



This is a phase some of us go through – the barbie doll look. 

Maybe it’s an age thing, but I remember when I was in my early 20’s I thought a beautiful woman should be sexy;

She should have big long hair (fill it up with extensions),

loads of make up (especially going strong with eye shadow giving you mysterious cat eyes),

as much lips as possible (lipgloss, lipstick, who cares!),

long fake nails (let’s go acrylics)

tight short dresses that show off those curves and cleavage

and not to forget – a pair of very high heels (platform included) that screams “come and fuck me”.


Less sexy, more natural


Yes. There was a time in my life that I thought desired beauty was all about being a Barbie doll. Or at least to look as similar to one as possible. And I did my share of failed imitations! 

However My taste changed several years ago, and today I love anything natural. Less make up, less sex, less fake! But not to the point of becoming boring of course.



This is when you need to have that perfect blend of being natural and classy yet have your sex appeal without people noticing it too much. After all, we are females and it’s in our genetics to make us look as attractive as possible so that we can attract the best suitable mate.

And like I’ve mentioned many times on the blog, if we’re actually going to listen to what the men really want – it’s less is more. More natural and less of the fake stuff.



My motto; everything in moderation. Balance will do you good. A little bit of this, and a little bit of that. Mixing it to your personal perfection. After all, you need to create your own blend, the one that screams “YOU!”.

But it’s easy to go blind, so do a little bit of self evaluation from time to time. Ask your friends to be honest with you, if they see something you cannot see. We all go through periods in our lives when we think we look better than we actually do. I sure went through that a few times :)

    I like your post a looot! I’m trying to get rid off my style cause it’s not very classy. I mean i’m still wearing Herve Leger dresses and i know those are not elegant :)) But i’m petite ( 1.55 cm ) and i don’t know how to make myself notice when i’m surrounded anywhere by tall girls. Any outfits advices for short girls like me? :)

      Babe, i’ve actually been thinking about your comment without the ability to give any form of answer. I understand your situation and I’m myself 170 cm so never really had that issue. Doesn’t killer high heels help?

    Hi there! Thank you for all your posts over the past weeks – as always, I come to your blog every day, even when I did not get a notification of any new post, just because I LOVE the content, your texts, advice + pictures. I chose thought not to add a comment to the last post, because I felt it would be out of context and I actually had to questions more related to beauty-stuff, so I though I’ll take the ‘last’ post in that category :) hope that is ok! I am deeply impressed by your progress in travelling, finding your ‘inner’ self and balance and hope you breath-in vital positive energy and inner peace in Bali!
    Just in case you would be looking for something to post about :)) may I suggest 2 ideas?
    1. How do you keep your beauty routine while travelling? do you do your nails by yourself? what are your fabourite nail polish colors right now? (please please please give us some pictures of the nail colors you’re currently inspired by for this last ‘summery’ days or fall)
    2. Would you mind doing a post on jewellry? especially watches, rings, bangles/bracelets? do you have any favourite pieces that you own or are looking to buy yourself? and where do you usually get the pieces from? do you typically buy ‘real’ jewellry (i.e. gold/diamonds etc) or do you mix & match?

    Thank you so much in advance! I hope my questions don’t sound too superficial, as I could imagine they don’t match content-wise with meditating and grounding oneself, as they touch on ‘materialistic’ , ‘consumerist’ ideas. nevertheless, any inspiration, advice, sharing would be incredibly highly appreciated!
    sending much love to Bali from the (cold, rainy etc.) UK!!

    love your blog! you write with real intelligence and empathy on subjects that can be derided as superficial.

    anyway i love LOVE love natural- i dont do surgery- instead i do things like facial accupuncture which rejuvenates and balances your whole system along with freshening your face.

    to me one of the sexiest girls alive is adele exarchopoulos= she exudes sex without trying too hard- i find the barbie doll look is cute and works for some girls but somehow for me a little bit of chaos feels more authentic- women are chaos afterall 😉

What do you think?
