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!

My day in pictures

A day out with my dad, iced coffee at Baresso, with a chocolate scones, Pandora was visited and I got another charm, this one was from my dad, the one I linked below, so now these are the charms that I have on my bracelet.

  
    

   
   

It was nice spending some time alone with my dad, he picked the charm, I think it’s really cute and I am pretty spoiled, I really needed a father / daughter day and I think it was nice to finally spend some real time together just talking. 💕

Am gonna cook a very nice meal for my fiancé tonight, I love cooking actually, I find it relaxing and creative. 

Right now I am waiting for him to come home, so we can enjoy the weekend and Valentine’s Day together this weekend, we are not making a big deal out of it, just a nice meal and candles, I will make sure to spoil him though, he deserves that! 

Hope you all have an amazing day, see you online! xx

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.

Lately I’ve been..

               

   

                 

I have had a busy weekend and I’ve been busy ever since I got home from the UK to be honest! This is what I have been up to!


Picture 1: This weekend I was at my brothers place, we had dinner together and it was so cozy, I loved it so much, been missing him a lot!

Picture 2 & 3: Another month another GOODIEBOX! I have opened my third box this month and I was thrilled!

Picture 4: I recently just finished this book that I bought in the UK, I loved it, the most scary book I’ve read in a long time to be honest, do you guys like nerve wrecking books? – you gotta read this one then!

Picture 5, 6, 7 & 8: I have enjoyed the weather recently, and spend most of the free time in my garden. I love my little garden plot, last year I grew so many amazing things! I have taken many walks by my garden too and have enjoyed the sun finally being out, I have missed spring!

Picture 9, 10 & 11: I have recieved a goodiebox from Comwell spa! A face mask and a body butter – they are both addictive and the body butter has this amazing scent.. 

Picture 12: Had brunch with my parents, my little sister and my dads two sisters at my family’s favorite brunch restaurant, I just love how amazing and huge their brunch plates are – I could wake up to that every single morning.. Yum!

Picture 13: I have tried hot stone massage for the very first time! It was gorgeous and really relived my shoulders from a lot of tension, I have a very bad back and this actually helped!

Picture 14: I tried the fragrance CLEAN and found a favorite instantly! This is truly amazing, I’m in love with the CLEAN fragrances.

Picture 15 & 16: I’ve been to Comwell spa with my two sisters and my mom, where we had hot stone massage, used the water spa and had lunch! It was an amazing day full of relaxation and girl-time! 

Picture 17 & 18: I hosted a dinner party where I cooked a main course and dessert for my two sisters and my parents – my dad gave me the flowers you guys see on the picture and the cake is apple cake. I loved that evening and the food was gorgeous! Pretty proud of myself.

I will try to find some time to review the Comwell spa and give you a little more info about the products I recived from Comwell too. 

I will of course also get a review of the book made, so you guys can hear more about the plot.

I alredy reviewed the CLEAN fragrances on the blog guys, go and find it if you feel like reading more about that!


Thank you for being such faithful and amazing readers! See you online x

The storm

This past weekend, we had a crazy storm that the reporters called “Egon” here in Denmark! (Yep we do call our storms names, and it’s a bit stupid, cause they are not major like the ones you see in the states!)

2015/01/img_4243.jpg

But we did have fallen trees, as you see here, and we did have two drowned people, due to flooding and we also had tiles from the roofs flying all over! In Denmark you pretty much see this as horrible, we don’t have major disasters, so this storm was one of the worse ones. The wind was pretty rough, the rain was horrible and bridges all over Denmark closed for a record long time! We have never had them closed for such a long time.

The sea crept up on our docks and up the streets, people couldn’t get home cause of the trains having to stop their regular arrival and departure times – it was a mess!

It’s still strong outside, but at least it’s better than this past weekend, Friday and Saturday was a complete disaster! Sunday was rough too, but it was a bit better and today, Monday was also stormy, but not with the strength it had that weekend at all, luckily!

Hope you guys had some better weather than we had here in Denmark this entire weekend! I just hope that the storm will quiet down and I can go and get my garden plot ready for the spring time! I have missed being in that garden so much, and I can’t wait till the weather clears up!

Hanging out, doing nails and showing off!

A great weekend!

 

This weekend is (are going) to be amazing! The weekend haven’t finished yet, but I alredy had a lot of things happening..

Yesterday I went to ”Waves” with my sister, and we got our monthly shopping fix, haha.. We went to a jewler and she got a new piece to put on her Christina Collect watch, its spaaarkling! She bought a new bezel and so did I, I bought one with 12 white sapphires in, and she got the one seen in the link I added, with sapphires all around the bezel. Christinas watches are a rare 24 ct gold coated watch with stainless steel underneath. Most of the others use fake gold colour, but in Christinas watches, their all real.

Today we are going out on bar hopping, my sis, me and a good friend of ours, so I am doing my nails.. The look is ”Japanese cherry tree” I guess, and i went a bit crazy, but it looks quite ok! Again I used Shellac – It just lasts better, and I used the two brands Depend and Bluesky. I love cherry blossoms and I draw them constantly, and lately, I just bought some nail pencils, so I went ahead and tried them out – they work brilliantly!

A trip to central Copenhagen!

I had the best day!

Today my sister, mom, dad and I took a trip to ”Nørreport”, a  to some big glass malls they have out there called ”Torve Hallerne” (in Danish). All new malls, with gourmet shops. All kinds of cakes, cheese, meat, wine, cream, little Cafés, fish and bread.. Its awesome, and my parrents bought a lot of nice stuff. I love their Milkshake bar they have, with tons of flavours. I had the blueberry milkshake, its just awesome, I can only say that anyone close to Copenhagen should go there, and check it out. Sammi went with me, and he sat in his little bag and enjoyed the lovely smells from a seat worthy of a king. He simply loved it! Everyone he met, loved him too, kinda adorable. It was such a nice day. 🙂
