Swedish blogger-turned-media-mogul Elin Kling is the kind of girl who seems to exude beauty and style from every pore. (As if she has them — have you ever seen a more perfect porcelain complexion?) So, we automatically assumed that in order for her to look that good, post after post, she must follow a pretty strict health-and-beauty regime. The truth is that yes, Kling does make a conscious effort to take good care of her health and appearance. But, she does it without sacrificing her favorite indulgences. Is it just us, or did our already overwhelming admiration for the blonde beauty just grow in spades?

"To enjoy life, eat well, drink that glass of wonderful red wine, and just make sure to mix that in with a workout and some healthy choices," Kling says of her approach to beauty. "It's all about detox/retox." Retox? Does this mean we can finally justify the sugar-fix we always seem to crave post-gym? We're not sure that's quite what Kling meant by finding the sweet spot between health and self-indulgence, so we're eager know how she manages to strike the right balance in her daily life.

Lucky for us, we'll soon be able to observe firsthand. Beginning Monday, Kling will take over La Mer's Instagram account to showcase the way she uses the luxury products as she goes about a week in her stylish life. We're all about that "sipping a glass of red wine in bed while enjoying the feeling of a freshly cleansed face" kinda life — might we have more in common with the mega-blogger than we think? Only time, and La Mer's Instagram feed, will tell.
