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!

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 ūüėú

Today I visited R√łdovre 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! ūüėÖ 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

Pandora, love & family!

Today I finally recived my Pandora charms! I have been waiting forever to buy them and only a few days to receive them, the DHL was quite fast at delivering! But here is the pictures of the bracelet now!

  
  
I love how it looks now! I can’t wait to get more charms, I have been hooked on this, and I love collecting little meaningful charms to place on the bracelet.

These were a safety chain, so I don’t lose the bracelet and a charm that’s called cosmic stars and I got it in purple, cause it’s my favorite color, that charm was special to me, cause my fianc√© picked it out and made me look twice at it, and I then foundit absolutely amazing.

Me and my fianc√© are doing better than ever, planning our future and slowly deciding how to redecorate our home. I am going to be an assistant nurse and am starting my education the 7th of March, I can’t wait, I’m so excited and a little nervous too. It’s always hard being all new to something, so I hope to get a good start.

My fianc√© is a great handyman, so he has been fixing things in our home – something that I am quite thankful for! He is a perfectionist and I can be completely sure that everything he touches, will be left perfect, hah! I’m a lucky woman, he is a good man, who always seems to think of me, no matter what he is doing or where he is, and I can’t picture life without him, this is what I imagined life would be as a little girl, when you found the only one, I can’t describe how lucky I feel!
Tomorrow we are having a family get together at ours and I am cooking pork roast and I can’t wait to spend some time with my family, I love cooking for them and for my fianc√©, so tomorrow evening will be really cozy, I’m gonna spoil them all!

See you online guys! 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 Рmainly 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 Рcause 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.

Online shopping!

nyxstick

I bought a new contouring stick from Nyx today

Today I finally got around to look at contouring, as I have won the new smashbox contouring kit, but in powder form, I wanted to try out some other ways of contouring, since I am hardly a pro at this! I saw a Youtube video, and decided between 3 products from different brands and in the end, I picked Nyx.

It seems much easier to blend, creamy and easy to apply and then its¬†2 in 1, so also easy to store and take with you if you travel – which I do a lot lately, due to my fianc√© having three kids back in England and we live in Denmark! ūüėÄ

The videos I’ve seen of others using this Nyx – wonder stick, has been easy and fast to apply, so I cant wait to get my hands on this amazing product!

Have you guys got a favorite contouring product? Cream or powder? How do you blend the best way possible? – I personally do brush blending when its a powder, and I do sponge if its creamy, that’s why I think cream contouring works best for me, cause I am best at using a beauty sponge. It just seems more natural in my hand and I have an easier feel of it.

See you online guys! x

Must haves!

This years must haves:

I have had some awesome gifts for Christmas by my fiancé and my parents that made me want to make a wish-list so badly!

My parents bought me two little gold charms for my Christina London watch, here is a picture of my watch and the charms I got

christinaur

This is my Christina London watch, and my two charms that my parents bought for me, I think their so cute, and I am going charm crazy now!

 

So these are the charms I wish to buy at some point:

I cant wait to kit out my watch with fantastic charms now, am all hooked on the Christina London collection!

pandorabracelet

This bracelet is the gift my amazing fiancé bought me for Christmas, and its called Moments, with little sparkling stones all over the clasp, I love it, its a perfect present.

 

I have been looking at a ton of little charms, but these charms I want in silver or maybe one or two in silver with a bit of gold in, here is a few I looked a bit at:

Lagafblonder

”Layers of lace” is a clip charm, that makes it¬†stay in place on the bracelet on the little ”dots” it has, and makes the other charms slide less.¬†I really love this one, since I adore lace. It’s so simple and classic!

braided

”Braided” is also a clip charm, I always loved Pandora’s knots and braid designs, their very classic and beautiful, so this is one of the charms I really¬†want, I think it will fit perfectly with the other one, I love how simple the design is.

Julysignatureheart

”July signature heart Birthstone” is my favorite one!¬†A beautiful little heart with¬†your birthstone¬†inside, this is mine for July!¬†I think its just fantastic, it is so me, I am gonna put this on my wish list for sure!

 

Did you guys get / give some awesome presents this year?

I gave my fianc√©¬†a lot of¬†e-juice, which he had wished for! Then I gave him some perfume and deoderant, two pictures that¬†I have edited the lighting and filter on, from a company that’s called ”Wallo”¬†they take your Instagram pictures and makes them into real pictures, and puts them in these beautiful frames! – I got him one picture¬†of his three kids and one picture¬†of us! I loved the idea, and I will probably get some¬†more at another time for our home, cause they match our style so well!¬†Then I gave him a mouse mat from Razer and a pair of clippers for his vape gear, mostly as a joke, cause he always used to steal mine!

His birthday is coming up soon, its in March (Yeah there is still some time, but I want to find the perfect present for him!) He has always been so amazing at finding presents for me and I love him for that, for his 30th I gave him a watch from Police, I just don’t know how to top it, but one thing is for sure, I need to find a perfect gift! He deserves that – and much more!

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 fianc√© 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!
