Christmas wishes? Uh… Damn

This year has been intense to say the least.. It’s also made me focus on everything else than the season we are in, which is winter and soon to be Christmas holidays 🤯 ..

I honestly haven’t been decorating, I haven’t been buying many presents and I definitely haven’t been interested in much lately -other than my physiotherapy that is.. But I really need to change that! I need some good old holiday cheer, and what better way, than to start writing a damn wish list and to decorate a little? ❄️

Some of my wishes this year.

  • Daniel Wellington watch – Petite Melrose
  • Glam Glow – Thirstymud
  • NYX jumbo eye pencil – Iced mocha + frenchfries + Yogurt
  • Maxi scarf – soft and pref in grey / pink tones
  • CLEAN perfume – Skin (An old time favorite!)

So do you guys have some amazing Christmas wish lists? Maybe some great inspiration I could borrow? The wishes I have aren’t too expensive and I honestly can’t say I wished for much this year.

The watch is quite beautiful, one of those watches that will look amazing whilst wearing a dress and some nice boots!

I am loving the jumbo eye pencils from NYX and I use them a lot, it’s a way of creating an easy and pretty eye makeup, without too much hassle!

Glam Glow Thirstymud is an amazing face mask / cream, that will hydrate dry and damaged winter skin! All you do after use, is just to wipe it off with some tissues, and let the remaining products stay on your skin. It really works wonders on my skin!

I found this cheap-ish scarf and I found it quite beautiful, it is a neutral grey/pink/white mix of tones, and it’s ultra soft. I found it in a grocery store called “Bilka”, which I never really seem to find anything remotely pretty in, but this scarf is actually pretty cute! I’m in a need of a good scarf lately, cause I honestly don’t have many good ones left to choose from anymore.. Most are thrown out due to wear and tear, and now I’m on the hunt for a new one!

The CLEAN perfumes series are always a win! I love the neutral scented perfumes, they aren’t heavy, they don’t give you a migraine and they cling to your skin, as it was your own personal scent, and I love that about them, they are just super subtle and especially the one called “Skin”. Working with a lot of people as I do, you want to wear something subtle, some people do tend to develop migraines and some can even be allergic to strong perfumes, these ones from CLEAN have never let me down, I have never encountered anyone of the patients that I work with, to have had a bad reaction to that specific perfume.

My biggest wish this year, is that year 2020 will be a good one, a healthy and happy one.

I hope to move into our dream home, I hope to start an extra addition to our family and I hope to finish my education with excellent grades!

Life is all up’s and down’s, it’s a bumpy ride, but it’s ours to live, to grow and to master, only you alone set the limits and only you can push your limits to become a greater you!

That is what year 2019 has taught me.

Thank you to all who has read along on my ramblings, right now it’s 06:44 – early morning, I am currently a bit poorly, with a middle ear infection and a cold, so I woke up to a banging headache and had to take some mild painkillers to be able to go back to sleep, those are finally working now, so I will crawl back into bed, with my sleeping fiancé, whom is also poorly with a bad cold and a sore throat and a bad cough -poor guy!

– He actually woke up, saw me writing my blog and asked very interested “Oh babe what are you writing?” And I told him, he found it cute, cause it’s been a while since I wrote much, this year has been tough on me. He approved of my little Christmas list.

How awesome is it, to have someone sleeping next to you, who wakes up, and reads some of the things you write, and then says “Oh that’s really cute” and drifts off again? He is such a good man, I’m lucky. Even though life has been tough this year, it has also been good to me, with his support, I can do anything!

Glam Glow

This is by far the best working brand I’ve tried to date, a perfect home spa experience, and worth every penny!

I’m one of those women who’s tried a LOT of face masks, and this is by far the best brand I’ve tried! Every product I’ve tried, have just been working and it’s also a pleasant experience – cause lets be honest, some face masks just plain hurts or dries into this impossible mess that you can’t wash off!

The Glam Glow supermud mask has a slight cooling effect, and is easy to rinse off when it’s dried. It leaves your skin feeling soft and clean. I can’t find a bad thing to say about this face mask, and normally I’m so disappointed with every new product I try – this has a Hollywood feel, and the price is fair too!

The Glam Glow Lip exfoliating treatment is a lip scrub, and I use it a lot, (mainly before applying long lasting lipsticks) and the container is huuuge, so you get a lot of scrub for your money! I’m again a bit speechless, because it actually works! It smells of mint (even tastes of mint lol!), and leaves your lips feeling baby soft, again not one bad word!

This product is for women on the go, it takes no time at all to apply and (for the mask) to dry, I’m impressed and will be repurchasing these products! I’m going to have to try the lip plumper that Glam Glow has made – I have high expectations now that I know these two products work so well!

Beautiful beach vibes

Lately I’ve been spoiled with some awesome products and I want to share a bit of my favorites with you guys!

The theme is of course: Beach vibes! Because it’s summer and in Denmark, the weather is insanely hot, perfect for a day at the beach.

ESSIE: Gel setter and Treat, love & Color

Through the years, Essie has become this “power brand” regarding nail varnish, and I adore the colors and the long lasting formula that it has, these two (from the left) is a Gel Setter top coat, it not only works as a top coat, but it also tints your varnish in a purple/pink hue, very cute! And the second one is a nail treatment varnish, that keeps your nails strong, it’s from Essie’s “TLC” collection, this color is “Mauve-Tivation” and is a soft purple/pink tone, and I love it, very summery. These two polishes together, lasted without chipping one single bit, a WHOLE week, rather impressive!

ECOOKING: Lip balm with pomegranate

– The danish store called “Matas” has a new collab partner called “Beame.”, and through “Beame.” there’s been a bunch of beauty highlights, that is on sale for that month, one of the June highlights, is the gorgeous Ecooking lip balm that you see on the picture above, and it’s insanely good! It’s all organic, raw and natural ingredients that the woman behind Ecooking is using, and who doesn’t love that?? I have this baby in my work bag, and it’s on my lips most weekdays! The scent of pomegranate that this lip balm has is amazing without being too much – a very natural scent.

HH SIMONSEN: The wet brush

I’ve been a fan of this brush since it first came on the market a billion years ago, it is simply amazing! No tangles, no ruined hair and best of all – such a fantastic design, I repurchase this brush every time I need a new brush, they truly are worth the fuss.

ESSIE: Fairy Tailor

I cant get around being in love with Essie, it’s affordable and the varnish just lasts ages, this time I’ve chosen to highlight this nude varnish – This baby is insanely cute and would go perfect with that natural beach look! You know the “casual minimal makeup” kinda vibe? This is your varnish for that occasion! (Or just for work, as I use it for!) it’s not over the top, just subtle, I like.. Again it lasts about a week, and I am a busy bee, I normally make my varnish chip in about a day or two!

The Danish GOODIEBOX review

GOODIEBOX is a Danish business, that for about 13 pounds total, delivers a monthly box to your door, with the newest beauty brands and trends!

These guys are always updated on the newest and most exiting things just on the market and sometimes – your actually the first one to be treated to the product, cause it’s not out on the shelves just yet! – If that’s not being spoiled, then what is?! xx






This last month (January) was all about spoiling your body, new beginnings and skin cleanse!

The box as you can see on the pictures above contained:

An amazing Vichy night detox creme, which I’m just addicted to! It cleans your skin and you can feel it doing it, it’s for sensitive skin, so it does not peel, hurt or leave red marks, it just simply does what it says “purify and cleans”

A body scrub from Urban Veda, a British brand, and this darling just had the whole box scented! It has an amazing scent, a flowery one, that makes you think of summer and drinks by the pool! I love using it just simply for the scent, but also it’s an amazing body scrub, I cannot begin to tell you guys how nice this body scrub is, it’s gentle but still removes dead skin and leaves your skin with this gorgeous scent and glow! I will re-purchase this, that’s for sure, I’m a huge fan!

A Matas sports care tester – it’s a muscle heating creme, that it great for massages and warm up of the muscles before a workout, there in menthol and kampher in, and it helps sore muscles of you use it as a massage creme. I will be using this for when I have soreness, and see if it lives up to its name, cause I tend to get really sore legs a lot, so this would be amazing!

A lip tinter from Pixi by Petra in the shade “Orchid Petal” this is a wind up pen, and I’m actually amazed of how much there’s in it! I LOVE that it’s not tested on animals – thank you! And it’s a hydrating and sheer color, that has Shea-butter in, and makes your lips feel cushiony and fuller! I have used it a fair few times already, and I love the feel of it, and it does not smell of too much perfume! It’s a light scent, fresh and almost hidden, and it has only a light tint to it, so it does not make your lips all crazy pale pink – no! 😉

I was a bit unlucky with the delivery, that unfortunately was a night delivery, right to your door – but as I live in an apartment building, that has a locked front door, it apparently did not get delivered properly. I ended up with a message saying it was delivered, but no box! Then I called GOODIEBOX and they send me another right away, with our ordinary postal company called Post Debmark, and when it arrived, I went to pick it up, got home and there was a package lying in front of my door, from the previous delivery company! I was one big question mark!

I contacted GOODIEBOX again, and they told me “oh don’t worry, just keep em’ both and test it out!” – so I have guys, and thank you so much for your amazing costumer service and wonderful help! I loved this box and this month and my second box (February) I will really be looking forward to!

See you online guys xx

OPI polish and face care!


I have had some amazing days lately, and this weekend have been seriously busy, so I was pretty happy to be able to relax Thursday, before everything kinda happened.

I had a hot relaxing shower, then used a my reg shampoo and conditioner, and after that a hair mask, to strengthen my hair, and protect it, then I used a face scrub, and after the shower, I used a face peel off mask. The hair mask is from a hairdresser in Denmark called STUHR, The scrub and peel I used is from Matas and I simply love them, they really work! Then after the peel off mask, I added a nice soothing and refreshing cream from Dr. Scheller, designed to moisturize and protect against dry skin, this cream is amazing, cause its 100% free of silicons, mineral oils and synthetic coloring agents, and is dermatologically tested! I love that cream, and I have the night cream too, its fantastic, I can highly recommend it!

While I had my face mask from Matas on, that needs to dry for like 20 min, I applied a new nailpolish from OPI, which is amazing! Its called ”The world is not enough” and is such a cute pale pink/silvery glitter, and I seriously LOVE it.. Gosh it is the one polish I would not attend a party without, its adorable!

I nicked some pictures of the face treatment cream etc online, so you guys can see what products I use, and maybe try them out yourself, they really do show results, makes your skin glow and very healthy!

Those two here, are ofc with Danish writing (Very sorry everyone who aren’t Danish!) But basically its a face scrub, and a face mask, that you peel off, and both cleans your skin from dead cells, clogged pores etc. These are pretty cheap, and they just work! I simply love these two babies, their 100% a re-purchase!

My nail polish, is quite amazing, here is some shots that I made, and some I found online!

The polish is called ”The World Is Not Enough” and is a pale pink and silver glittery polish, thats just amazing for a night out with the girls! I love how easy OPI’s polish is the apply, and how fast it tends to dry! Its not a ”shellac” but it truly is a good regular nail polish, and its amazing and worth the money! Right now, in the Matas store, there is a buy two, get three offer, and I bought two (I will share the other new polish with you guys later), and then gave my sister the third one, and she ofc picked it out herself! We just really do love OPI.

The end result of a nice face treatment and some good nail polish just works wonders, and its a huge self-esteem boost! I do this little ritual every week, at least once a week, sometimes twice, and my skin loves me for it! You gotta treat your skin with great care as a woman, you have it your whole life, and throughout your life, you apply a lot of make-up, that dries it out, so care for your skin girls!

Picking out presents

Do you need help?

It was the night before Christmas, when all through the

house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse..

❤   ❤   ❤   ❤   ❤   ❤   ❤

 I like giving fairly cheap and meaningful gifts for christmas. This year, I decided to make a list of my all time favorites, hope I can help create some gift ideas:

A bodylotion, from IKEA: A really cheap, and awesome gift, everyone needs bodylotion in these cold winter times, and I sure love this one. It dosent have too much scented perfumes in it, but still smells amazing, and its for regular skin.

Underwear from H&M: You can find alot of cute underwear for a girlfriend, fiance, wife, friend or yourself in H&M, to a fair price. There is so many different styles and types of underwear, wich makes it easy to find a winner!

Jewlery from Skagen: Steal your wife, friends or mothers ring size and mix n’ match these amazing rings, the price is very fair (from 98 Dkk,- to 298 Dkk,-) These rings looks amazing and is worth the money! The danish design Skagen, is pretty damn great at designing good jewlery, and this is a great gift idea.

Perfume from Matas: A good and simple idea is a nice perfume! This is where it can get abit pricey though.. But the brand ”Crazylibellule and the Poppies” are a good choise! This perfume I belive you can find anywhere, and its this ”Lip balm” kinda perfume, that you put on your neck, wrists and behind your ears.

Hope everyone got some ideas of what to get for their friends, family and girlfriends this christmas, I sure had fun buying gifts this year, and I love giving people a great gift, that is personal and unique. Many wishes of a merry christmas and a happy new year from Denmark – Mia. ❤
