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!

Being someone’s “bonus” 

I told you guys in my last post, that I have had so much going on and have been very busy, that’s the reason I’ve been a bit quiet here! 🙂

I finally have a little time now, and I can share with you all what I’ve been up to! 

My fiancé have been blessed earlier in life with three amazing kids and I get along with very well with their mother, she is a good friend of mine I might add and a brilliant mom! Their three kids have been on vacation here in Denmark for two weeks, and I’ve been experiencing how it is to be a “bonus mom”. ❤️

We went to Tivoli (A Danish amusement park), we went to the Zoo in Copenhagen and we went to Dino Land in our town (a huge indoor playground). We did a lot while they were here, and it was amazing to be a part of their life, I’m really lucky to be able to see them grow up like this. Their truly amazing kids and so well behaved.

As soon as they left us at the airport, I must admit, I cried. I was getting so used to having them around, the laughs, the hugs and the busy days.. Our home was empty and quiet after they left, it really was. They will always have a home here in Denmark with their dad and I, their brilliant kids, all tree of them.

So this is why I’ve been so madly busy, and I’ve been loving it! I now understand the busy life of a parent / bonus parent, but also the joy that comes with it – it’s truly unique. So to every parent or bonus parent out there, so much love from me to you! It’s hard work, but it must be so rewarding.

See you guys online! x

Shoe shopping

I hate looking for shoes! I know, not very lady-like, but that’s me.. 

Every woman’s dream is buying a nice pair of shoes, but I hate it! The whole looking for a good mall to find shoes at, having to try them on, walk around in them in the shop, try to decide if the heels are too much or if I can actually walk in them.. God it’s a mess! Lol 😜

Today I visited Rødovre Centeret, and I found a pair of black leather boots from BilliBi, which I have been needing for a while now, sneakers don’t just always cut it, boots do look a bit more classic and nice with an outfit.

  
So here they are, my new boots, with a 6 cm heel, but thankfully it does not seem like 6 cm! I don’t do high heels, I hate them actually. If they aren’t comfy, I ain’t walking in it! 😅 I am a woman of comfort over looks, but I finally found comfort and looks in these shoes.

   
 
I also sat down and had a milkshake and a piece of cake with strawberry sorbet ice cream, God that was nice! “Svaneke Is ” is definitely a place to visit for a nice piece of cake and a milkshake, yum! 

So definitely a good Friday! Now I can welcome the weekend and be a step closer to starting the education I really want and I don’t need to rush around and be stressed out due to old worn shoes, notepads I need and a bag I don’t have, hallelujah!

I just need to see if my big handbag can hold my books in it – crossing my fingers!! And then I think I’m set.. I can’t wait to start the assistant nurse education!

Hope you guys are having a great Friday, see you online! x

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.

Going back home

Goodbye UK, gonna miss Elland, been here for eight days now and I don’t seem to wanna leave!

Edit

My heart is in two countries – England and Denmark. I don’t want to say goodbye to any of them.

It’s never easy taking that dreaded plane home, I hate going home from England, I wish I could just stay forever. He is moving to Denmark in a few months, but the wait will be horrible, being apart is never easy and I wish he could just go with me right now.



I’ve traveled to many places around the world, but UK has always been my favorite. Been here quite a lot lately due to my boyfriend and all, but my first trip to UK was when I was fifteen, and I swore to myself that it wouldn’t be my last time. I love the language, the buildings, the shops, most of the food – haha, and my boyfriend is here and his entire family.



This time I met the rest of his entire family, I saw them all, I feel closer to all of England now, and I’m gonna miss it so terribly! It won’t be the last time that I’m going to visit, I’m in love with the country and the people I’ve met have gotten a special place in my heart. 

All of his friends and family have made such a huge impact on me, they are forever special and I wouldn’t ever wanna be without them in my life. I think I’ve been lucky, to have met all of these amazing people.



This picture was at “Julio’s” – an Italian restaurant in Halifax, we celebrated my boyfriends 30th birthday here, and I met all of his family there by coincidence too.

I’m home now, home to an empty and quiet apartment, and an even emptier fridge, I just hate coming home and having to throw out things that’s past the expiration date, it’s horrible! My fridge is as empty as I feel now, it’s always so horrible going home to an empty place, a very quiet house, having to get used to the silence again. I’m too social for silence, I hate it!



But it will all be okay, I know that in just a few months, we will be together for good. No more missing each other, no more wishing and longing. In the meanwhile – I’ll try to make myself busy, I need my garden sorted out, I have got the most beautiful little garden plot, and it needs sorting, this year I’ll try to plant even more and get more salad and fruit from the garden, I can’t wait to get started!



Saw this at the airport, and it’s not a lie though – we (Denmark) have been voted “happiest nation” and that’s pretty damn awesome, I’m proud of my country!

Goodiebox February 2015 review

Yet another amazing box!



This time it was inspired by Valentine’s Day, and had a bunch of really luxurious products in, that I’m gonna review below!

Oolution Check Matte:

This is a gorgeous French product, a lotion for your face, that is 100% organic, the woman behind this wonderful lotion is called “Anne-Marie Gabelica”, she has a huge passion for organic ingrediences. Oolution has a special formula that makes the lotion adapt any skin tone! This lotion is ideal for a make-up free day! But is also wonderful as a base under make-up, cause it moisturizes your face perfectly, and makes the make-up sit flawless on your skin.

Bellápierre Cheek & Lip stain:

This is a new and up-coming brand! They have won beauty awards for their natural ingridients and has a lot of exited costumes alredy, this product is a 2 in 1 product, for cheeks and lips, I love it mainly for the cheeks, it’s easy to apply, makes your cheeks glow and look super healthy and natural – I love natural!! The makers challenges the beauty product market with their innovative products! Try it out girls, it’s worth it, and pretty cheap too, and lasts for ages!

Goodiebox nail file

A cute little product that Goodiebox DK made themselves with their own brand name on, I love it, easy to take with you, travel size and is always useful really! I travel a lot and always have a file with me in my make-up purse, this will give me much more room, and less possibility of the file breaking! Oh I like that! This baby cannot be worn out, just rinse in warm water if it gets a little dull, with a sponge or a brush, it will be like new!

Kueshi Natural & Pleasant Cosmetics Revitalizing Face Toner:

A long name yeah… But a gorgeous product none the less! This is a “must have” and “love this” product from Goodiebox and constrains Aloe Vera and camomile that soothes and helps create a healthy skin balance. Use morning and night after washing/cleansing your face, apply with cotton pad and let air dry and finish off with your regular face lotion / serum! I love this, it leaves my skin fresh and clean, I love the feeling it gives, and it’s obvious that it works, cause I have no oily skin after using this – not even after a long stressful day or when I’m ill!

Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm:

A first aid balm for chapped lips, dry heels, elbows, closed wounds and dry hands! This amazing product helps the skin restore itself and is perfect for these cold months we have in Denmark where our bodies needs a bit of first aid because of the blistering cold! I have used this on my chapped lips and my poor dry hands, it truly works and I can’t thank Goodiebox enough, cause I recived this box justr when I got very ill, and have made good use of this darling! It’s definitely one I will re-purchase, and the price is great too. Yep I’m in love!

All in all, it’s been a nice Valentine’s box with a lot of goodies in, I also recived a gift certificate for a jewelry brand from “Jane Kønig” but I would need to buy for a certain amount (high amount) to be able to use the gift certificate – a little sad, so I chose not to use it, cause I alredy have jewelry, I worked in a jewelry store, so I have a lot of statement jewelry that I always wear, so I have no need for more. x

Thanks for reading the review guys! See you online and have a fantastic weekend! xx
