Today in pictures

My mood brightens and my worries seems to fade, by simply just walking through the forest.

I adore taking pictures of the nature around me, and most of my life I’ve lived in this cute little town, where the forest is very close by, and I can take a long walk, clear my head and just unwind.

Today was one of those days, where I really needed to take a step back, and think of something else, just for a little while. With the sale of our apartment, the purchase of the house we are in love with, the approval from the bank and the lawyer who needs to look into everything – I am finding myself a teeny tiny bit stressed. My inbox is getting spammed with important emails, and I find myself checking up on it constantly.

– I ain’t complaining though! 😱 I am blessed that I at the “young” age of 31, are able to purchase such a house with my partner / better half. I am also insanely lucky to find a house that we both really like and in an area that’s very appealing. But my mind is going a 100 miles an hour, and I am so excited and nervous at the same time..

This long walk was just what I needed ❤️

Madness and mayhem

It’s been absolutely crazy this past week.. Or actually these past three weeks! 🤣 – And it will only get crazier…

We have had my three bonus kids / my better half’s three awesome kids, staying here for the past three weeks, and I’ve loved every minute of it! They are here every year for three weeks (we live in Denmark and the kids lives in the UK where my better half is from). We have missed them terribly this year, and it’s been so good to catch up with them and spoil them all rotten.

This year we have been staying for a week at my brothers house, at Lolland – which has been absolutely amazing! So much space and so many rooms, one for each of the kids even! That’s been pretty awesome, and it’s got us thinking.. We need a bigger place, we really do.

My bigsister always sends me a bunch of links to fantastic houses that’s for sale, most of them so expensive, that it would put you in debt for a lifetime! But at the end of week two, whilst having the kids over, my sister managed to send me yet another link, this time it was a house that’s affordable, with the rooms we need and a fairly big and private garden..

We were suspicious really.. Looking at the pictures, wondering which flaws would be the final deal-breaker, but as things progressed, the house just got even more interesting.

We called the estate agent up, and asked for a viewing, and we had a look at it. We weren’t disappointed.. It was as nice as on the pictures and very cozy, it had a feel to it! Best of all, it was huge…

Before we knew it, we made an offer, the offer was bargained with a little, but then accepted and our bank approved of the loan, oh my god I’m just speechless!

My mind is an absolute mess, with so many different emotions, and it comes in waves.. Happy, anxious, giddy, excited, drained, melancholic – the list goes on and on, but most of all, I’m relieved.. Finally a new chapter of our lives are starting, and we are on our way to become house owners!

We are about to sell the apartment now and hopefully it will be a quick sale, for the right price. I bought the place 8 years ago, and we love our little home, but it’s also time for something bigger and we are ready for our forever home now, and I believe that we might have found it ❤️

The following weeks, we will be having a professional photographer snapping pictures of our home, and it will shortly after be up for sale, it’s so surreal! 😱😄

Glam Glow

This is by far the best working brand I’ve tried to date, a perfect home spa experience, and worth every penny!

I’m one of those women who’s tried a LOT of face masks, and this is by far the best brand I’ve tried! Every product I’ve tried, have just been working and it’s also a pleasant experience – cause lets be honest, some face masks just plain hurts or dries into this impossible mess that you can’t wash off!

The Glam Glow supermud mask has a slight cooling effect, and is easy to rinse off when it’s dried. It leaves your skin feeling soft and clean. I can’t find a bad thing to say about this face mask, and normally I’m so disappointed with every new product I try – this has a Hollywood feel, and the price is fair too!

The Glam Glow Lip exfoliating treatment is a lip scrub, and I use it a lot, (mainly before applying long lasting lipsticks) and the container is huuuge, so you get a lot of scrub for your money! I’m again a bit speechless, because it actually works! It smells of mint (even tastes of mint lol!), and leaves your lips feeling baby soft, again not one bad word!

This product is for women on the go, it takes no time at all to apply and (for the mask) to dry, I’m impressed and will be repurchasing these products! I’m going to have to try the lip plumper that Glam Glow has made – I have high expectations now that I know these two products work so well!

Purchased at: Matas

Lip exfoliating treatment

Beautiful beach vibes

Lately I’ve been spoiled with some awesome products and I want to share a bit of my favorites with you guys!

The theme is of course: Beach vibes! Because it’s summer and in Denmark, the weather is insanely hot, perfect for a day at the beach.

ESSIE: Gel setter and Treat, love & Color


Through the years, Essie has become this “power brand” regarding nail varnish, and I adore the colors and the long lasting formula that it has, these two (from the left) is a Gel Setter top coat, it not only works as a top coat, but it also tints your varnish in a purple/pink hue, very cute! And the second one is a nail treatment varnish, that keeps your nails strong, it’s from Essie’s “TLC” collection, this color is “Mauve-Tivation” and is a soft purple/pink tone, and I love it, very summery. These two polishes together, lasted without chipping one single bit, a WHOLE week, rather impressive!

ECOOKING: Lip balm with pomegranate


– The danish store called “Matas” has a new collab partner called “Beame.”, and through “Beame.” there’s been a bunch of beauty highlights, that is on sale for that month, one of the June highlights, is the gorgeous Ecooking lip balm that you see on the picture above, and it’s insanely good! It’s all organic, raw and natural ingredients that the woman behind Ecooking is using, and who doesn’t love that?? I have this baby in my work bag, and it’s on my lips most weekdays! The scent of pomegranate that this lip balm has is amazing without being too much – a very natural scent.

HH SIMONSEN: The wet brush


I’ve been a fan of this brush since it first came on the market a billion years ago, it is simply amazing! No tangles, no ruined hair and best of all – such a fantastic design, I repurchase this brush every time I need a new brush, they truly are worth the fuss.

ESSIE: Fairy Tailor


I cant get around being in love with Essie, it’s affordable and the varnish just lasts ages, this time I’ve chosen to highlight this nude varnish – This baby is insanely cute and would go perfect with that natural beach look! You know the “casual minimal makeup” kinda vibe? This is your varnish for that occasion! (Or just for work, as I use it for!) it’s not over the top, just subtle, I like.. Again it lasts about a week, and I am a busy bee, I normally make my varnish chip in about a day or two!

New Years in pictures

The year 2017 was amazing, it was the year that I finally started my nurses assistant education, the year that I found out how it really felt like to be a nurses assistant and how busy it can be, but also rewarding!

It was the year that my amazing fiancé found work as a tiler and I am so insanely proud of him, he is such a strong man and such a wonderful dad and a fantastic fiancé

This year has been hard work, fun, exciting and down right busy! I found a job as an uneducated carer, so I’m basically working two jobs – one as an intern and one as uneducated, it’s hard, but it’s rewarding, I love helping and caring for people and I can’t wait to go to work again! I wouldn’t have it any other way.. My work is a part of who I am, and I am proud of that!

2017 has been a year of growth for me, a year where I’ve built up my confidence and where I have had so much love and support from my fiancé in almost everything I’ve done! I can’t thank him enough..

It’s also been the year where I’ve finally gotten my drivers license – something I’ve been putting off for forever, because I lived close to everything and never needed to drive. – But now I finally have it, and I’m driving! What’s even better is, I got my moms car to drive in all the time, since she hardly used it, I’m so thankful for that!

My little sister finished her masters degree in IT – I’m such a proud big sis, she is such a brainy girl and I know she will end up becoming someone great, she is just that type of girl. Determined and insanely smart

It’s also been a year of redecorating, where we redid the entire bedroom – newly painted and newly furnitured, now we just want a new bed, and a few bits and bobs, I really love that bedroom now!

2017 has also been all about spending time with my bonus babies, and I miss them dearly right now! They were here the summer of ’17, for three weeks, and I cried horribly when they had to go home! I felt miserable for weeks..

I truly hope that everyone had a wonderful and safe celebration of the new year and that 2018 will be an amazing year, mine can’t be anything but, cause I have them three wonderful bonus babies, my fiancé and my family by my side! I couldn’t wish for anything more from 2017, it’s been the best year I could have imagined!

See you online guys! x

Christmas in pictures

My Christmas was spent with my fiancé, my parents and my little sister

My Christmas was spent with my fiancé, my parents and my little sister – it was a wonderful evening ❤️
The presents this year from my fiancé – he knows me too well! The Glow Kit from ABH, mystery box, MAC long lasting lipstick in the Metallic “Softly Rockin” and MAC lip liner in “Whirl”, these were my four main presents, I’m spoilt lol..
The items in my Mystery Box! A teddy, which is a microbe – The common cold (wasn’t in the box, he bought it separately) bicycle balls – back lights to place under the seat lol! Pizza socks, so cozy! Hyper lips, a gamer mug, a mindless coloring book and edible bubbles! – The Mystery Box is always a hit, I seriously adore it! Quirky is my middle name haha!
My mom and dad bought me a double bedcover, a really nice sweater from Guess and a gorgeous hand soap and bath gel! My little sister got me a lip primer from Golden Rose, and also a gift certificate to Golden Rose – I quite like that store!
All in all it was a wonderful Christmas and I was spoilt more than I ever imagined, I must say I spoilt my fiancé just as much as he spoilt me, although his boss ended up spoiling him even more and got him a PS4… Beat that?! Yep… lol
We had lovely and calm Christmas and after all the food was eaten and the presents opened, my little sister, fiancé and I, ended up playing a game I bought my fiancé – it was a hit! It’s called Joking Hazard, it’s quite insane, it’s from Cyanide and Happiness, I posted a picture below of one of the jokes we made that evening – we were howling with laughter 😂
I hope everyone had a merry Christmas and will have a wonderful New Year, see you online guys! x

Christmas wish list

Hi everyone, it’s been a while since I posted anything, mostly due to me focusing on my education and my job.

I’ve decided to share with you, a bit of wishes I have for Christmas this year, it’s mainly make up, cause I just can’t seem to get enough of it, and a bit of funny or cool things from one of my favorite websites – I can’t get enough of it!

I picked out a lot of different make up items, some is high end brands, and some is very affordable.

I also wished for some items to decorate my home (from my parents), because I don’t have much of that, and what I have is pretty old heirlooms, so I put them a bit out of the way, to make sure nothing happens to them.

The ABH Glow Kit palette, inspired by Nicole Guerriero! It’s fantastic, who can’t use a good highlighter kit? 😍 You can use it as a highlighter or as eyeshadows, they would just work wonders both ways, their just that damn pretty! It’s limited edition, so you better act fast guys, it’s definitely a Christmas present worth getting for the wife / girlfriend!

The metallic liquid lipsticks from MAC is to die for! I adore the color “Softly Rockin”, I have two colors from the Retro Matte liquid lipsticks, and their amazing! Soft, not too dry like many other long stay lipsticks are, it’s perfect for an evening out!

How gorgeous are these?! I love being cozy and warm, staying at home with a great book and a cup of coffee, these slippers are just perfect for that! Plus… They got lights on! Uuuhh!

The Too Faced Sweethearts perfect flush blush, its bling, a fantastic color and perfect for a beautiful blush glow, I think this is a gorgeous blush, would love this as a Christmas present!

The Nanoleaf Aurora LED light, its insane! You can set it up on an app on your phone, decide which colors you want, or even hook it up to your music device, and let it flash along with the music, it’s too cool. It can even wake you up slowly in the morning with a set timer, how incredible is that? I would love that in the bedroom, just above our bed, would look pretty neat!

The worlds cutest cup of coffee! A unicorn cup, for the unicorn / horse loving woman, haha! I think it’s adorable, I’m into this whole unicorn theme to be honest.. Their so FLUFFY! 😍

The ABH Modern Renaissance is a magnificent eyeshadow palette, I love the golden, brown and pink hues, their just very much me! A palette that’s highly pigmented and full of bling.

The MAC Snowball brush kits are adorable, every woman needs a new set of brushes once in a while, and who would say no to a MAC brush set? Their so pretty these! I love bling, and these are just bling enough for me!

The MAC Snowball eye bag in “Smokey Pink” is gorgeous, I think you could do some fantastic smokey eyes with just these two, and the mascara and eyeliner is great, I tried the eyeliner and I’ve heard great things about this mascara, all in all – a great kit!

Golden Rose is a new brand for me, they just started a store in Waves, and I have a long last matte liquid lipstickand a bronzer from them, and I adore both! I always wanted to try out a lip primer, just to see how it would work in my make up routine, and I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on this one!

I myself went a bit mad with presents for my fiancé and my family this year, but I won’t mention what I bought for them, because they might follow this blog and get a sneak peak, that would be too bad!

I hope your all doing great and enjoying this month and the upcoming holidays, see you online!
