My saturday!

New hair color (again) and a new blending technique!

So this is my new hair color, I regretted the red color that I colored it after only about a day, it was originally a ”copper” but it was bright orangey red at the top and a bit more red at the tips of my hair, this new one I will keep though! Its also from Schwarzkopf – Natural and easy and is no 576 and its a chestnut brown, I love the deep dark brown with an undertone of a dark almost red/purple copper. It suits my skintone a lot better than the red/orange. I am and always will be a ”natural look” girl, haha!img_0311-2

I got to practice a lot more on my contouring with my Smashbox kit, as you can see on the pictures above, I still make sure its as natural as possible, I just enhance my features – mainly my cheekbones, I now started blending it in with my make-up sponge, but applying the color with my brush, then blending it with my sponge, and it works wonders! It blends perfectly, I saw it on several Youtube videos being used to blend out the lines.

Today I got a call from my big sister asking what we were up to today, her and her youngest kid stopped by and we spend all Saturday catching up, going to an e cig shop called Ecigz where my fiancé bought a few juices and my big sister also bought a few things, then getting takeout from Tandoori Hut in the mall that the shop is at and went home to ours to eat. We had a lovely evening, I missed her and it was amazing catching up with her.

Her son had saved up money from Christmas to buy a Segway board and we charged it at our place and it was good fun to see him learn how to stand on it, he was quite good! He learned so fast, it was incredible – I wasn’t gonna try my luck with that thing! Knowing me, I would break something haha! Those things looks so dangerous, I would never dare to use one, it seems to me that you can hurt yourself very easy on one of those things, or is it just me being a chicken? It drives crazy fast!

Today its been snowing like crazy, it has snowed so much today in my town that the snowplow we have at the building blocks we live in, have been driving non stop. Denmark is covered in a deep layer of snow now, the last time I looked outside, huge snowflakes were streaming down in a neverending layer, covering everything. Its beautiful outside, the snow makes it look perfect, but its freezing cold and very slippery. I feel like an old lady, walking outside in a turtle slow pace, so I dont slip – cause I always slip when its been snowing and the rain has been freezing all over the pavement, it will end up with me breaking something if I walk any faster than granny speed..

It was a great day today, I love weekends, especially when I get to spend them with my fiancé, my big sister and her son.

Happy 2016 everyone!

Goodbye 2015 and hello to 2016

This is our New Years eve in pictures, our dessert – homemade vanilla and strawberry ice cream that I made, our twelve o clock champagne, the make-up I did for the evening and our beloved New Years eve tradition – watching ”Dinner for one” or as we Danes call it, 90th birthday! A black and white movie, but god its funny, and we love it! My mom, my dad, the fireworks, its been a good evening, I cooked everything and my fiancé did the steaks, and they were cooked perfect!

 

Make-up of the evening was foundation: A cc complete cream from Youth Lab, MAC lipstick called Brave, lip liner from Yves Rocher in the color Rose Fuchsia no 15, brow mascara from Maybelline, eyeliner called master precise from Maybelline and mascara from Max Factor! I will show you guys below, so you can see and if you like, you can contact me, if you wish for a review of anything, Id be honored to give one!

The eyebrow mascara and the eyeliner are both must haves, I have been loving them ever since i first bought them, and will always be a repurchase on my list! The CC cream from Youth lab is very new, but I got it in my monthly Goodiebox, and I have been hooked ever since, the mascara is a constant repurchase since I love that it makes my lashes sit perfect and does not clump! The lip liner from Yves Rocher is very new, and I am still getting to know that one, but I like it so far! Mac is never something you will regret buying, and the lipstick Brave is one of my favorites by far, with the lip liner, soar (which I did not wear on the pictures above though).

Food for thought!

This evening when I couldn’t sleep, I started researching new recipes and decided that I wanna cook more versatile food! I found some really interesting ones, and it’s exiting to be cooking something different for a change!

The other week I made this smoothie, from only strawberries and crushed ice, the strawberries are from my own garden, I find it important to know where most of my fruit and vegetables are from, and what better way, than to grow it yourself?

So I had this healthy smoothie, and read a good book, and yes the glass is from Hard Rock, but there is no alcohol in! XD It’s a souvenir from one of my many visits to Hard Rock, it’s one of my favorite places to go, the drinks are great and the food is gorgeous! x While having the smoothie, and reading, I started to think, that it could be nice, trying out more new recipes!

Soon I will start cooking a bit differently, I think it will be fun to try new things, I wanna make my own bread more, make great desserts and I wanna make Thai courses more, having been to Thailand, I fell in love with the dishes there and now I want to make some of them myself!

See you online guys! x

Sushi Friday!

20130309-132856.jpg

Yesterday (Friday) I had my little sister over for lunch, which was sushi! It was great and we enjoyed ourself very much, we saw “Wreck it Ralph”, ate, talked and went shopping together, just a typical “girly” day. I loved it very much, my sister and I are nearly the same age, she is a bit younger than me and we have some great laughs together! Yesterday was actually the day I bought my Christina London watch.

What did you guys do this Friday?

Today I have been out grocery shopping with my parents, it’s been a while since I saw them, so it was nice to see them again! Also doing some grocery shopping was highly needed, so it was great to get done.. Now I can read a book, relax and do some laundry and watch a movie or something! I am definitely gonna lounge in my armchair, that’s for sure! Hehe…

Sunshine on a wednesday..

Its been a fairly busy day for me today.

The sun was shining today, on a clear blue sky, wich made me in a very good mood today. Even waking up at 8 to call all kinds of things and work out some lisence for our TV, my travel card for school and doctors appointments dident bother me much.. Cause the sun was out and shining, and I had the whole day to just kick back and relax.. Or so I thought!

At first I called about four places, got numbers and so on for every place I needed to call on my list, had to go online to change adresses for my travel card for my school, and I dont even know if it worked yet, so I have to call yet again tomorrow, and ask them, if it looks right now… Sigh it sucks. The worst thing is, that every student in Denmark probably had trouble with these guys, cause they just dont know how to provide propper costumer service. Let me tell you guys… ”YOU SUCK!”.. Ahem moving on! That dident bother me much, just a bit, a bump on the road maybe.

Then my lovely neighbours startet their hammering and drilling next door, wich they have been doing for like a month now. I kinda hate them for it, cause its when you least expect it, they just start drilling like mad men. Well this was at like 9 I think, but its been worse, so I dident get pissed, I just let it slide, and thought ”Ah well its a work day, and most people are up anyway!” But they kept on going for ages, and when they finally stopped it was late afternoon, and I had a rinning sound in my ears… Fantastic.. Now I was getting a little cranky.

Then I made dinner and put it in the oven, and took a shower while it was cooking, with a timer on. My puppy Sammi, found it funny to attack my feet under the shower curtain. Not so cool, when you are wresteling with soap in your hair and trying to shove a puppy away, so he dosent drink the water on the tiles, with soap in. After ten minutes, he kinda stopped and fell asleep at the bathmat.. Lucky me!

I made it out of the shower, puppy in one piece and my feet intact, wohoo.. I blow-dried my hair, and when I wanted to un-plugg it, I burned myself on the plugg.. What the…?! Now my electric appliances were hating me too? I have a neat burn on my thumb now.. Nice!

The timer rings, and I needed to get the dinner out of the oven, so I switch off my oven, and looks at the food.. I decide to call on my fiancé to take out the dinner for us, so I dont get yet another burn to match the blowdryer one. Good choise, cause my fiancé is better with the oven and not burning himself, than I am. No harm happend to him!

Then I decided to wash our clothes, and loaded up two big piles of coloured clothes, wich we use the most of. When I start shoving clothes in the washer, I cut myself on my ring… God stupid way to hurt yourself, but I guess im a pro.

What a long day, now I think its best that I go to bed, and maybe… Take off my rings, and tell my fiancé to keep sharp objects away from me!

Should he cook?

I love my fiancé, but…

He is not the most skilled chef, thats even to say it nicely. He manages to scare me every time he wants to help me out in the kitchen, and I know he really means well, and probably wants to spare me another day of cooking, but it scares the be-jesus outta me! Today, he took out all the meat in the freezer, to and I quote ”cook”, just that stunt, made me take over the cooking, and think ”Oh hell no!”, its easy at our home, I cook, he does the dishes. He dosent have the patience for cooking, he is clever though, just for alot of other things than cooking. He plays the guitar, and he just started in this new year, and he alredy knows how to play alot of songs, and he can repair a computer, just give him spare parts, then its done. He can set up a internet router and everything, he is a great handy man – when he has the patience for it! But its not always the case. 😉 I love him to bits, but in a kitchen, that is where I rule. Im not perfect, and I am practicing every day, im bound to get better at some point!

Sharing the love!

Love goes through a mans stomach..

Im trying to figure out, what dishes to make for my fiancé, and what he loves to eat. So my mother-in-law wrote me, giving me an amazing website, with alot of good recipes from Romania that Alex knows and likes. *Hugs from me mom* Alex was thrilled when I made him, a romanian style, of french toast. I never really made french toast before, cause in Denmark, you never make that kind of stuff, *I know, bad bad me..* 😉 But a danish breakfast table is boring, and our way of cooking is very plain. (Maybe its because ive had danish food my whole life) I added alot of different kind of cooking styles to my knowledge lately, cause danish food isent all that amazing. We do have one of the best michelin resturants in the world here in Denmark called ”Nova”, and yea, danish people do cook brilliantly, but we take alot of different recipies and make them our own.
