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!
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!
What’s new since last?
Since you guys last heard from me, I was doing an internship as a caregiver, I worked there for six month, and I loved it, and with tears in my eyes, stopped the 24th of December, and am hoping that I can return as an assistant caregiver aka nurses assistant, or take the nurse education, and then return. I miss it so much already.
- I’m engaged, and have been since 9th of May 2015
- I passed my math exam for the caregiver education
- I got accepted into the caregiver / assistent caregiver education
- I know what I want to do with the rest of my life
I’m engaged you guys! I can’t believe it, the 9th of May my man asked me to marry me, and bought me this amazing ring from Pandora, its gorgeous and I of course said yes! I am now a ”bonus mom” to three gorgeous kids, two girls and a boy, and I love them so much! The youngest is four, (soon five in a few days), middle one is five and the oldest is ten. We have been spending Christmas with them this year in England, in West Yorkshire, Its been amazing! Christmas was so busy, but fantastic and I will get more into the Christmas in another post, full of pictures – but not of the kids, cause I want to keep them out of my blog, I don’t need them visible on any online media. But I will tell you all about that later on!
While I was working as a caregiver at the elderly home, I also had a math tutor, and was studying very hard to pass my math exam, so I could get accepted into the caregiver / assistant caregiver education. I then passed my exam the 25th of November and got my final results the 10th of December and got to know I had passed! So thankfully I am all set for my education, I cant wait!
I got accepted into my education the 10th of December, and got to know that I’m starting at the 29th of February, due to having so much Danish and English skills already. On top of that, I get about three month less in internship, cause I already had that with the job I just worked six months at, so its really fantastic, just what I needed, to get my education started quick and no hold ups.
Now I am set and know what I want to do for the rest of my life, I want to be a nurse, to help and support people, to treat and protect. This is an amazing line of work, and I know I am suited for it, cause I have seen so much the last six month, both good and bad and I am thriving, even though I have tough days, like everyone else, but I am loving what I worked with, its so amazingly giving, I cant describe it! I will also do a post only about my line of work and how my six month of work has been.
I will also make sure you guys see how our new year has been, its been a small new year, but amazing and cozy, where I was the cook and my fiancé was helping me, but lovely none the less!
Thank you guys, for reading along, Its nice to know your still with me, even though I have been very inactive, but I will try to keep more active from now on, now that my tutoring is over, my math exam is passed and I am waiting to start my education, during my education I will also keep you updated, and I will of course keep posting about make-up, products and beauty tips – like always!
See you online guys! x
Who doesn’t feel just a little bit “boyfriend soppy” at times?? I’m missing my boyfriend so much, ever since he left Denmark I have been in soppy boo!
I saw this pillow on Facebook in a post about loneliness and I truly just got inspired for this crazy post, about longing, missing someone, distance and soppiness!
My boyfriend is from England, he wants to move here, but it takes time and planning! I want him to take his time, give him space and let him plan before rushing in – but at the same time I just wanna kick in his door and steal him away, haha! He has been such a good guy towards me, and I’ve been the happiest with him, I don’t think I can ever remember a time, where I was happier than this.
When finding a guy, where you can truly see a future and a life with him, it’s hard to let him go, let him take that plane home and just wait for the next time we are going to see each other!
Before he came to visit me, I couldn’t sleep, for two weeks I suffered from horrible insomnia and as soon as he was here, I was sleeping normally! When he left, I again had trouble sleeping – hence the late night posts at times.
It’s strange that another person can make such a huge impact on your life, I do believe in such a thing as a soulmate, and he is mine, he really is.
I need that boyfriend pillow! Maybe I can sleep better at night! For Christmas my boyfriend actually gave me this pillow, that has a speaker inside it, where you can plug your phone into it and play music, and I’ve been using it a lot lately!
This pillow is so comfy, even without the music, and I really loved this Christmas present! I am so spoiled and I am truly happy that he thought of my insomnia while buying this for me. Sometimes I can’t believe I’ve been this lucky, to find a guy, who has truly grasped the idea of me, how I am and what I’m like. He knows me too well!
To all the boyfriends out there, that this Christmas bought something for their girl, that was well thought out, thank you for setting the standards! 😉 You have – like my boyfriend, truly understood the idea of giving a gift! It’s the thought, that you guys have thought of her, what she needs and what she would truly love, and found something, that just fits her! – Something that would maybe have been a strange gift for everyone else, but for her, it was perfect! You guys rock!!!
To all the girls out there, receiving these gifts, I hope you truly appreciate your man, and that you also bought him something well thought of, cause he deserves it!
So much love to my way too amazing boyfriend, am truly the luckiest woman alive!
See you online guys xx
As promised, a list of the amazing presents I received for Christmas, complete with pictures and descriptions!
First of all, the most goofy present I received of all, was from my boyfriend, he bought me a “Mystery Box” and here is the things that was in the box!
A milk-cup light, that shines in my kitchen at night now!
A disgusting candle, probably the center of the attention at Christmas too, cause everyone had to have a sniff at this vile thing!
A picture of the mystery box itself and a chart of what was in the box, one of the things that was in it is not pictured, it’s a slushie cup!
A banana umbrella called “umbanana” haha!
And last but not least a bottle opener, disguised as a Mexican wrestler!
My parents then gave me a sound system from Bose, a gorgeous present, that I am very thankful for, and I love very much, and yep I have already used it!
Then I received a gift certificate from my bigsister, her husband and their kids, it’s for IKEA, and was just what I wished for! Now I can get a bit of new furniture for my place!
Then my boyfriend gave me a comic book, with my favorite villain! The Joker! I simply love it!
Then my little sister and her boyfriend gave me a top and a shirt to put over it! A bad picture, I know but it was all I had at the current time! It’s from Selected, and I love it!
Then my boyfriend gave me yet another present! This one is a headset, from “UrBeats” in my favorite color, a present that was quite needed and very appreciated, cause my headset broke, but it was a cheap and very boring one tho!
The last present I got, I don’t wanna post here, cause it’s very private and means a great deal to me, again my boyfriend who gave me yet another present for Christmas, this one was a big poster, with pictures from our first two vacations together in the UK, text messages we wrote each other that was real funny, and it is shaped as a big heart, and I simply love it!
Well to start it all off, my boyfriend and I spend our first Christmas together, and I have been sleepless for two whole weeks, before he went to visit me, it was the first time he had to see Denmark, my family, my friends and my place, and I was terrified!
I literally got no sleep what so ever, I had maybe three hours of sleep tops at night, for two straight weeks, cause of the anxiety and anticipation of him, coming here, and if he would like this country, my place, my friends and especially my family!
But everything just seemed to run smoothly when he arrived, he got to meet my dad at the airport, my bigsister “stalked us” at the parking lot outside my place, embarrassing! XD She had spend the day at my place, like we do often, and when I left with my dad to pick up my boyfriend at the airport, she was waiting for us at my little sisters place, which is very close to where I live – in a block nearby to be exact! So I had my Bigsister greeting us at the parking lot, my little sister and her boyfriend hanging out of her window, yelling hi after us, and he also met my dad – all in one evening, poor man!
It was a little funny, but also I felt kinda bad for him, having to meet so many, in such a short time! But I think everyone was dying to know, what guy I had been dating and flying over to see in the UK two times, and the expense was just too big for them haha!
Christmas got celebrated with my bigsister, her husband and their two kids, my little sister and my parents, so he met quite a few people! Christmas morning, was also packed with people, all of them from Christmas eve, and then my auntie and uncle too! We were 11 people in my flat! But it was cozy and amazing and I loved every second of it!
I took him to a few places so he could see some of Denmark, we saw the very famous “Little mermaid” at Langelinie peer, then we saw the Opera house, the queens gardens, the castle inside the city “Amalienborg” and then we saw the museum at “Amalienborg” that showed old dresses, all the royal family’s pictures, the study’s that has been used and how they looked through the time. We also went to the movies and saw The Hobbit 3 and went to a few shopping malls and had some nice dinners out.
All in all, the weeks he spend here, at my place, has been amazing, fun and relaxing!
– And to top an amazing holiday off, we even had a white Christmas!
– Stay tuned guys, next time I will show you pictures of my years harvest of Christmas presents and tell you guys who have given them to me! (You won’t be disappointed, there is some pretty interesting ones amongst my harvest this year, that I cannot wait to show you!)
– Last but not least, pictures of things we saw during his stay here in Denmark!
