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.

Christmas 2015

Christmas day was amazing!

We celebrated Christmas in the UK, West Yorkshire to be exact, and got to see the kids open all their presents, it was a whole new experience for me, and I loved every min. of it. We had our first Christmas tree in the apartment too, it was beautiful! We went to ”Fisketorvet” to buy one of the kids her present, we got drinks there too, to celebrate Black Friday, it was beautiful with all the lights as always, my fiancé bought me some fantastic Christmas presents again this year, he seems to overdo it each year, insane! This year, he bought me a Pandora bracelet and Pandora earrings! Plus another firebox mystery crate you can see all their gadgets here and he also got me the cutest little unicorn hoodie with build in gloves! Here is a few pictures of everything.

We did a Christmas decoration, made Christmas stars and decorated our tree, I can’t begin to explain how wonderful this December has been, in the beginning of December, we had a snowstorm in Denmark, a very crazy one! From one day to another, we got landed with tons of snow, and the streets were very icy, but at Christmas itself, we had no snow what so ever – typical isn’t it? If you find the pictures too small, you can always have a browse at my Instagram lifeasmiamariah. Would be happy to have more amazing followers!

The last picture is me and my fiancé, dressing up, at his grans house! We had to try out her Santa hat complete with beard and her reindeer horns, haha! It was made into a very special memory, and a good laugh when we look back at it!

So yeah, that was my Christmas basically, how was yours? I would love to hear about it!

The storm

This past weekend, we had a crazy storm that the reporters called “Egon” here in Denmark! (Yep we do call our storms names, and it’s a bit stupid, cause they are not major like the ones you see in the states!)

2015/01/img_4243.jpg

But we did have fallen trees, as you see here, and we did have two drowned people, due to flooding and we also had tiles from the roofs flying all over! In Denmark you pretty much see this as horrible, we don’t have major disasters, so this storm was one of the worse ones. The wind was pretty rough, the rain was horrible and bridges all over Denmark closed for a record long time! We have never had them closed for such a long time.

The sea crept up on our docks and up the streets, people couldn’t get home cause of the trains having to stop their regular arrival and departure times – it was a mess!

It’s still strong outside, but at least it’s better than this past weekend, Friday and Saturday was a complete disaster! Sunday was rough too, but it was a bit better and today, Monday was also stormy, but not with the strength it had that weekend at all, luckily!

Hope you guys had some better weather than we had here in Denmark this entire weekend! I just hope that the storm will quiet down and I can go and get my garden plot ready for the spring time! I have missed being in that garden so much, and I can’t wait till the weather clears up!

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!

Spring is near

 Spring is upon us

Spring is almost here, atlast! Its been snowing quite a lot here in Denmark, but now its melting away, the sun is shining and the sky is so amazingly blue! I have been having one of those very rare ”cleaning fits” – so I have been vaccuming, washing the floors, cleaning the kitchen, dusting and putting things in their rightful places. It just looks amazing now, and im pretty pleased – as I always am when I do clean. Now im just sitting in my armchair, trying to relax a bit before im going to an open house thing with my little sister, to see if its anything intresting for her to live in, who knows, im hoping atleast!

 

Me and one of my best friends Line, is going to go for sushi soon, we are waiting for a package from smartdog.dk and that gives her a great reason to visit me again! Then we are gonna go out for sushi and shopping, and see if there is anything we cant live without! Im really looking forward to that, we see very little of each other recently due to exams, jobs, education and boyfriends.. Busy little bees!

 

Thursday I am going to a birthday, one of my great friends Carsten is turning 22 and is having a huge party at his house, it will be fun, I just dont quite know what to get him? But I will find out, and I know him, he is happy that we are just joining him, and I truly enjoy spending time with him, he is a great friend.

 

Next month im going to an 80’s party, jeez what to wear? I really have no idea, and im thinking about just wearing regular party clothes, cause im just not that into the whole 80’s theme! Maybe you guys could link me some clothes styles from the 80’s?

 

This month is full of things to do, and so is the next month, today will be one of the more relaxing days, cause I really dont have that much planned. I think Im going to watch some movies now, read my Anita Blake book and maybe wash a load of laundry, would be nice to get that done too.. Living in my own place has made me busy, but also pretty content, I am thriving a lot more, living here on my own, with my fiancé, and soon, the summer is here, and everything will be so much easier, cause the warm sun just gives more energy! All this winter is getting on my nerves, and I just hope this is the last snow melting now.. I cant wait to lie in my garden char, reading a book, enjoying the sun on my face..

Sunburn and good friends

The other day (Thursday), I went with my mom to a private hospital, to get her ears checked out, due to a terrible cold that had spread to her ear canals.. My dad, mom and I went there together, and it went fine, she is perfectly alright and she has gotten some pills to help the lowered hearing.

After a very quick and fast examination, due to the private hospitals perfect care, we went to a little Café, and the sun was shining so bright, so we decided to sit out in the sun! (My poor back!) I ended up with a pretty painful sunburn and I promised myself to be more careful now, cause damn it was red! Alex (my fiancé) laughed so bad at me, cause the print on my back looks terrible! Typical me… *lol*

After that cozy day out, we had a “girls night” or at least an unplanned one! I have two great friends at my apartment building, and the three of us ended up in my downstairs neighbors apartment (Jane), we just had a great time, I feel very much at home here, it’s just great.. I was a bit anxious about moving into an apartment building, and knowing anyone, but it turned out to be the best thing I’ve ever done!

Hope everyone have had some great days, and a good start at the summer vacation!

With love…
Miamariah

A hot summer day!

Today we had a whopping 27 degrees in Denmark! It was wonderful! I was sitting inside, writing some que cards for my exams, and decided to take my Yorkie Sammi for a walk.. This was what met us.. Yelling young people, laughing, racing each other.. One of these people were my great friend, and I went to say hi. He told me that all of this was due to their last day of school, and well.. Me being a tad older than him, forgot when that used to be! Congrats to them, and woohoo for their last day of studies. I feel old! Bahh..

Today I spend the evening at my parents, we had a great dinner and I had fun walking the dogs, and ended up in the garden with my sisters dog, splashing water on her, and she was trying to catch the water in her mouth, going all crazy. It was a great day, my dad came home after a business trip he had been on, and I sorta missed him a lot, so it was nice to see him, was the only time I could, cause he is leaving tomorrow, another business trip awaits him, I just hope he doesn’t overwork himself.

Sitting in the sun was almost too warm! But all my flowers has loved it! When I got home from my parents in the late evening, I swear they had grown! My strawberry plants looks huge! I will have a ton of them this summer, yum! My mom helped me get some lavenders from her garden, so I have two pots of lavenders now! I also got a pot of lovely green ivy plants, that I want crawling on my balcony wall, on the left side. I’m in love with the type of garden who looks like a forrest! I want my mini garden to be a magical little place, like a secret garden, that looks a bit overgrown, but still kept neat! I want pots with plants everywhere, and a lot of edible plants, I can use in my cooking! It’s brilliant not to buy everything, but to grow them myself! I promise to snap more pictures of my soon to be secret garden slash balcony! XD And maybe a few sketches of how I see my balcony in the future!
