Life lately in pictures

Lately I have been really ill, I have had the flu, and so you all know that feeling, of being cooped up inside, but having no strength to go anywhere? – that’s been me lately.. Full of cold, coughing and fever – oh joy! But I’m starting to come around though, after a full week of pure torture, I hate being ill! I have seriously slept so much lately, that now when I’m finally feeling a bit better, I messed up my sleeping pattern completely, argh! đŸ€ŁBut it’s gonna be great going back to work / my internship, I really missed it and all my colleagues! ❀

Other than that I have been insanely busy with my education, I have ordered / received books for my new school semester (Nine to be exact! 😅), which will be totally different this year, since I’ve been “bumped up” from a care helper intern, to a nurses assistant intern, so I am basically not finishing my care helper education, but moving straight on to the nurses assistant education this month, the 20.03.17 to be exact, yikes! đŸ˜± So the one picture of ALL my books, that’s what I’m gonna be doing for the next couple of years, scary stuff, but also very cool! I can’t wait to start, it’s my dream that’s come true really and I’m so proud of being given this opportunity to skip a step and move on to the education I so badly want. ❀

I have been enjoying life a lot with my fiancĂ©, getting a bit of takeout – sushi (he got a wok dish since he hates sushi – except the deep fried prawns you guys see on the picture lol) Watching a ton of good movies (mainly on Netflix) and just plain relaxing, we have had a lot going on before Christmas and all through New Years, with traveling, holidays and my education, so we are just enjoying the peace and quiet that kicks in after the holiday rush, it’s fantastic! 😍

We have been getting into my fiancĂ©s “new” hobby a bit, I basically got my fiancĂ© a fish tank for Christmas, since he has been dying to pick up this old hobby of his, I thought it was an awesome idea, and it was a perfect Christmas present. After that, he has slowly filled it with the fish he wanted. (An albino pleco pair, some blue ram cichlids, some beautiful cherry red shrimp and some neon tetras) The whole thing have been quite the adventure to say the least, and I have gotten to enjoy this hobby of his and the tank is just insanely beautiful to look at! I love all kinds of animals, so I can fully say, that I really love his hobby – it’s pretty damn awesome!

So I have been going mad on MAC products, I purchased this fantastic “Retro Matte liquid lipcolour” in the shade so me and got so into it, that I had to have a second one, called burnt spice, I do not regret getting these two, their insane, lasts for hours and hours and looks great on! 

Besides make up, I have changed my hair, I had a very dark brown haircolour and I pulled all the colour out and added in a tone 6, basically it’s a very light brown, on the box it said “dark blond”, but I do think it’s more of a light brown really, but I love it, and it’s the colour closest to my real haircolour, so I’m keeping it this way, I am really liking it. ❀ 


I hope you guys have had some great months into the new year and that you have had amazing holidays before that, we are enjoying the calm before the storm – which means my education swap and then my finances birthday coming up around the corner – omg! đŸ˜±đŸ˜œ It’s gonna be great!

See you online! x

So have yourself a merry little Christmas now..

 

Did a lot this few weeks, took care of my sisters dog, with my friend Jane, and baked and made oatmeal balls, had my dining room table decorated and am counting the days till Christmas eve, missing my grandmother a lot, she was always a big part of Christmas, and her not being here has left quite a gap in my life. She was the only grandparent I ever knew, so it hurt loosing her back then. I will manage, but I miss her, every day.

Have been cleaning a lot lately, been up early, and to bed early too. I feel pretty active and productive now, before this I was a bit of a night owl, and didn’t sleep much. I was tired constantly and it sucked.

My mom has a birthday just around the corner, 8th Dec, so I have been out, finding her a present, which wasn’t easy! We are going to have a really nice dinner with her, and celebrate her, with style! (As she deserves!)

Right now, I can’t sleep, the storm outside is pretty rough, been a long day, with very stormy weather, and a lot of ice cold rain and wind.. It has been one of those days, where you just stay indoors, and watch movies, drink coffee and eat sweets.. So I did exactly that! Watched a pretty good movie on Netflix, which is my new drug by the way! Its amazing.

My dog Sammi has been a pain today, he was so restless today, and wanted to play around a lot.. Guess the weather bored him, and we had my friends dog Sisse here too, and they enjoyed each others company a lot today, especially when Sammi was so bored.

Been cleaning a bit, while listening to some music, was nice to get some stuff in order, and it looks neat here, feels pretty good to have a clean home! I am normally a messy person, who doesn’t clean like a white whirlwind like my mom, I am relaxed and like it a little messy actually. But lately, I have felt pretty damn good while cleaning and putting things away, and having it neat and tidy! Hm am I growing up? I sure hope not! *YUCK*

 

Keep warm and cozy out there people!

A doggy day!

Walks, treats and websites!

My little dog Sammi, taking a nap!

Today I had one of my best friends over! Her and her boyfriend was here having a nice dinner with me and Alex. We took two long walks with the dogs, surfed for doggy things online, and discussed good treats! Line – my good friend is giving her dog raw meat, wich is one of the most pure foods you can give your dog, and her dog being a Chinese Crested, its even better for his skin. I am all about the doggy food being bought from http://www.Olivers.dk and love the way they make their food. My dog just dosent eat anything, and this food is something he loves! So we talked alot about different type of food, treats, websites and so on.. I told her about the website http://www.smartdog.dk, who sold little treat bags that you could clip on your leash and train with them on the moove, it is really perfect! Sammi has gotten alot better the last few months due to the treats being with us the whole time, and him understanding what he is doing is great, and getting rewarded instantly.

 

We found a lot of super cute stuff on smartdog.dk and one of them was this black bow tie, its adorable! So we splurged a bit, I got four bows for Sammi, two in red and two in beige, their so pretty and will fit him great, and the price was so low, that it just made it all worth it! Even getting it to the front door was free, just super perfect.. So we went a bit crazy, and got some nice things for the dogs!

 

What websites do you guys shop a lot on? Im mostly a fond user of Amazon, their brilliant and their fast shipping makes it worth your while!

The shellac arrived!

The day came…

.. Where I recived my shellac nail polish in the mail, and ended up with some new and awesome colours. I fell in love with ”Dark Lava”, a really lovely dark red that i ordred, with specks of glitter in it. Its pretty awesome, and it looks so EVIL on, its perfect! I havent tried on the other ones yet, there is so many, and I love them all. I will order some more, this time, I will order some more light colours, and some for french nail art, so I can get classy nails whenever I want! – I love doing french nails, they look cute!

I have made some pretty perfect nails on alot of people alredy, friends/family mostly, and I have learned that I love doing nails as a hobby, its pretty relaxing. I like having people over and doing their nails, its great! But it is not something that I wanna do professionally at all, its just a fun and creative hobby. – I have always been fond of creative hobbies, and I always will be.

 

Today I spend the day with a good neighbour and friend, and we went to Metro (a huge mega-buy supermarket), and looked at their offers. I found a great little shirt for my dog, cause in this cold we have in Denmark, it is not cool to be a dog, with no undercoat! – He is a little Yorkshire Terrier, and as most people know, their coat dosent shead, and needs to be groomed or cut on regular basis, and yeah, I used to trimm him a lot, and I was pretty good at it, (Ive been a hairdresser), but now I decided to grow his hair out, and let him go to a show, to see if he gets good grades. I would like to use him as a breeder, due to his very nice family. Sammi is my baby, and well I do not want kids, so he is my kid, and spoiled to the bone!

I also went to shop in Bilka with my good friend, (Bilka is a regular supermarket) and we did our daily grocery shopping, I wanted to go to Matas (a make-up/besuty product store), but it was closed, damn… I have gotten this card from Matas, and you earn these ”points” that you can use on their online website, to buy point-prizes with! Its kinde neat, you can get a lot of cute stuff, and I got some goodies from Rimmel, I bought the ”Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Tint & ScandalEyes Eyeliner” from their shop, and I hope their good. Its a lip glossy thing, thats supposed to last a long time, and an eyeliner thats waterproof, woop de doo! Not bad at all really.. I have a few 100 points left, and I hope they get new items in there again soon, cause it would be cool to see if I could find something else that was intresting. The Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Tint & ScandalEyes Eyeliner was 235 points, and in the store, just to buy the set it costs 120 DKK, not much, but its a 120 DKK that I saved, and im trying something new for once! – I am a ”stick to the same thing” kinda girl, I love the products I know, and dont trust the ones that promise you eternal beauty – but okay, who does? (Im amazed I ended up trying the Shellac nail polish at all, but I do not regret it!)

 

I bought some pretty cheap pantyhose by Caroline Fleming – A Danish celeb who has some pretty good ideas about fashionable pantyhose! Yey for her, and for me, cause I can wear them! Haha.. Look what I got!

To round things up, I have put some pictures together for you guys, just to see some of my former nail designs – their old and pretty ordinary, but fun to look at. These are done with mostly regular polish, some is shellac tho, I love the one with the little white flower on, check them out, tell me what you think!

Hope you guys had a good day!

Learning equals living, right?

I have many passions!

Grooming my puppy Sammi is one of them..

 

I have a dear friend and she used to be a trained and licensed dog groomer, she loved it so much, and she still does. I must admit in some way, it rubbed off on me, her passion for grooming and trimming dogs, just blew me away, her stories she told me about dogs with matted coats, or long nails, just got to me, and also the good stories too, about great owners, coming in with their dogs on a regular basis, having their coats or nails taken care of. That made me intreagued in some way, to hear all of this. The whole thing might have taken abit over, especially when I groom and trim my Yorkshire Terrier puppy Sammi, who to be quite honest, would rather have frequent diaria than be groomed or trimmed by me that much! But as the well behaved puppy he is, he manages with only a spiteful glare or two, to survive my not so amazingly pro grooming and trimming skills. And he makes damn sure that I see how happy he is, when he is done! But as my friend says, practice makes perfect, and as my dad says, we learn as long as we live, and I really want to be good at this, for my dogs sake, so I can keep his coat perfect.

 

The other day, my friend showed me how you do the propper Yorkie ears, when their coat is kept short and fluffy. A lot of people keep their Yorkies short coated, if they dont plan on doing dog shows, its called a puppy trim and it looks so amazingly cute. Poor Sammi nearly had a stroke when she took out the trimmer and it started buzzing, and he flat out howled when she put it near his ear. She also used a scissor to cut the sides of the ears really short, so he got the pointy ears, wich is normal for a puppy trim. It was so close to the ears that I had sweaty hands and was shaking all over, from just thinking, that she might get the cut wrong.. But not her, she is damn near perfect when she has a pair of scissors in her hands. I hope that I will get that perfect someday, but its just to keep practicing. For now, I think will leave the ear trimming up to her for a while, cause I need alot of practice, and I dont want to do him any harm! Sammi got quite used to the trimmer, and in the end he settled down, and actually stood quite still, wich amazed me. That little guy learns pretty fast! The results got amazing, and his ears are awesome. I have groomed and trimmed everything else on him but his ears, so I guess im not that bad. Atleast im not letting his coat get matted and ruined.

 

Sammi being clever and all, have learned alot of new tricks! Sit, lie down, paw, hi-5, up and paws on arm. He isent that old yet, but he knows all the commands that are vital, like coming when I call him, knowing when I say no, it means no, knowing when i praise him, and he has been good and he has been walking without a leash from day one, cause he just listens to me when we take a walk. I guess he just finds me comforting in some way, or maybe he just gets that he shouldent run that far. Either way, he dosent run for it, and he can run and play free of his leash with other dogs. He even loves the big dogs, and finds them amazing, my sisters dog, a bordercollie named Molly, is his best friend. Molly being bigger, faster and older, makes it abit hard for them to play, but boy does he try, and sometimes, she gives in and lets him chase her, even though she is the sheep dog, and she normally chases everything. (Cars, joggers, kids, a mailman every now and then and the other dogs) She is a quite difficult dog to train, and belive me, we do try and we wont quit trying, but she is stubbern, even more than my little Terrier! Wich is quite amazing, cause their known for their stubbern personalities and their opinion about how they should be treated. Yorkies wants to be seen as equals, and not lower beings, wich most dogs accepts to be. But I guess thats what I find so amazing about Yorkies, they demand to be seen.

A pitter patter of little paws

My little boy Sammi

Sammi is excatly 17 weeks old now, and is really getting used to living with me, in my apartment. He is almost completely house broken, its only a mather of time really, he has been very easy to train so far. Rarely he has an accident inside, but its not really that often anymore. I trained him to do the command ”up”, so he stands on his hind legs, its kinda cute! He knows sit by now, and comes when I call his name, and stays when ever I tell him to stay. He dosent walk with a leash, I havent had the need for it yet, but it might come? -Who knows! My family abselutely adores him, and treast him like he was a little child, especially my mom.. 😀 I do my best at teaching him, how to be a propper dog, no. I try to get him to say hello to most dogs, especially the bigger ones, cause I dont want him to be afraid of them. Little dogs, can easily get spooked when a bigger dog approches, and I dont want Sammi to be nervous. Thats why I spend alot of time with my parrents two dogs, a Border collie named Molly, and a Golden Retriver named Ozzie. He loves the both of them, and isent scared at all, and those are fairly big dogs. Thats a perfect sign of a healthy and happy dog, with a good temper! Even though Sammi is a Yorkshire Terrier, and their known for their excessive barking, I never had that problem with him. He dosent say that much, and when he does, its when he plays with other dogs, wich I find perfectly fine.

A Yorkie has always been my dream dog, so getting him was a dream come true! 🙂 Many might think that the yorkie is just a tiny  and boring lap dog, but being a Terrier, their very active and fun, they always figure out how to make you smile! The Yorkie was originally from England, bred to hunt rats, mice and other small rodents, that makes this dog a hunting type of dog. This breed do not shed at all, and can be in a weavy long coat, that is mostly used for dog shows, or they can be trimmed down and have a short fluffy coat (wich I adore the most), their great companions, cause they adapt very well into any house hold, no matter the size, they do not need tons of room to be happy, the only thing about the Yorkie to seriously consider is, that its not a dog for small children! This breed has very small and fragile bones, and little thin legs, that makes it very easy for a small child, to accidently hurt the dog, by picking it up and dropping it. A Yorkie is a dog that needs boundaries, and a strong leader, cause a Yorkie has a strong will, and will take over, if their master isent dominant enough, but its no major power struggle, just letting it know, what to do and not to do. You will 100% get further with praise, but not praise alone. Make sure to let it know who is pack leader, and who is follower, and you will have an obedient and fantastic little dog, that will love you forever. This dog might seem small, but its great at protecting its own household, its a dog who sences its owners mood, and if it sence frustration, it will do its best to protect you. A Yorkie is a dog who is very dependent of their owner, follows them in thick and thin – even at 2:00 in the night, when you need to use the bathroom… Belive me! 🙂

This little guy and I, spend alot of time together every day. I think getting him was the best thing I could have done ever! Thank you to the breeder Vivian. ❀

Just to prove my point, a Yorkie follows you everywhere!
