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! 🤣But 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! 😱 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 fiancé, 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 fiancés “new” hobby a bit, I basically got my fiancé 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! 😱😜 It’s gonna be great!

See you online! x

Life lately

A girls hair is her secret weapon, or at least I think so.. And my hair is definitely what makes me feel attractive and feminine. So August (almost at the end of August), I spoiled myself by visiting my hairdresser and getting a new hair color and some reflexes made. – It was highly needed, since it’s been ages ago that I went to the hairdressers. 

So I’ll give you guys some before and after pictures below! 😄

A before picture

The after picture

The result is just perfect, and I’m so happy that I listened to my hairdresser and what she thought would suit me, sometimes it just works out better than imagined!

At the beginning of September I finally got myself dragged to the opticians to get my glasses ordered – not one of my fondest experiences tho.. I have to wear them every day, normally I just need reading glasses, but my sight got worse through the years apparently. So I ended up buying Karen Millen glasses and am crossing my fingers and hoping I won’t get worse eye sight any time soon. – I really don’t like glasses much, that’s the honest truth! I feel geeky with them on (More than I already am yes!) and most of them don’t fit my petite face – it looks like the glasses are wearing me and not me wearing the glasses.. So I ended up with a pair that wasn’t that bold, even tho I wanted bold, go bold or go home right?! But I just don’t suit bold glasses..

A close up of me and my new glasses!


So that’s my glasses, nothing big or extreme, just a classic look, it was horribly to pick out glasses – I was torn between this model from Karen Millen and a Hugo Boss model. To be fair, I adored both of them, but these fit me the best. I hope that I’ll get more confident wearing them, but right now I’m not thrilled.. But it’s better than not being able to see properly or have headaches all the time..

Hope your month was as good?

Daily must have hair products

  
Well guys, this is a picture of my bathroom shelf, the products I use and basically is a must have for me!

I love hair oil, it makes my hair healthier and a lot less dry! I swear by the Sunsilk spray and I also use the SP oil in the ends of my hair to give them more strength and less dryness. 

I love the hair mask from Garnier, it really works wonders for colored and damaged hair, the Urban Veda body scrub is just amazing and has a gorgeous scent! The Palmolive Body wash is as it says – relaxing, and then the little black sponge out there, is my secret weapon against bad skin on your face! It is so soft and removes every impurity. You just hold it under water for a few min and it soaks it up and gets to be really soft.
What’s your daily hair routine? Do you guys have any products that just works wonders?

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.

Dryshampoo, does it work?

Yes it works wonders!

Lernberger Stafsing is the answer to an amazing dryshampoo, I am proud to say that it’s a Swedish brand – us being neighbors and all! (I am Damish) and it builds your hair up with volume and deminishes the oily texture that we girls wants to get rid of so badly!

I was one of more pessimistic people when it came to dryshampoo and the effects of it, I ruin my hair a lot by washing it too much, but now I can at least skip one hair wash, due to this amazing product! I got it in my monthly Goodiebox – From November (A Danish box of gorgeous products) and I have been hooked on this ever since!

  
This is a dryshampoo, structure builder and volumizer – all in one! It gives the hair everything that’s so crucial for a good looking and freshly washed feel that I just can’t go without, so now I can get a bit healthier hair, by using this instead of washing it too much.

Are you guys believes in dryshampoo? I wasn’t till November, but now I am all for it! Do share your product of you use another one, always exciting to see other products!
See you online guys x

Beauty sleep yeah right

I suffer from insomnia a lot, so I’m up all night sometimes.. When I wake up in the morning, no matter if I have had insomnia or had a great nights sleep, I always seem to look like one of those small trolls with the bright colored hair! My hair just has a mind of its own!

I swear, once I ran around thinking I had a good hair day, but I forgot to check my hair in the back… It was a disaster, I looked like a hobo! A no go to a day out around lots of people shopping that’s for sure.. I only saw the disaster when I came home, how great was that? .. Not that great at all.

But to be honest, I’m like that, I can get quite unlucky with some things, and really lucky with others! Haha

Have you guys ever had a really bad hair day? My worst one was when a hairdresser accidentally colored my hair green…. Yes GREEN! I went from a blond (The summer had made it that way) to a brunette, which I normally am, and it got to be green.. Brown with a sickly green tint to it, I felt like hiding!

I also had extensions, the ones you heat up and they stick around pieces of your own hair.. Never do that girls…. I had BALD spots some places, cause my hair couldn’t carry the weight of the extension and it broke! But damn it looked so good while it lasted, my hair is not amazingly thick, and that’s one thing I would really love! Long thick hair.. – Would be amazing.

Hope you guys had better luck with your hair than I had haha, see you online! xx

New hair color!

I just colored my hair, I decided that I needed a mini change, and that my hair looked a bit boring, so I went from a dark brown to a dark blond! 🙂

I used a hair toner, a much more gentle product to make your hair lighter!

I feel pretty happy about the results and this is 100% something I would like to use again!

Have you guys a favorite hair color? Do share, I’m really intrigued to see what hair colors you guys love!
