Oh boy, it’s been a while hasn’t it? Woops! I guess there would be plenty of excuses, but I’m not going to use any of those. I’m in love, I’m a live, the sun has been shining and work is great. This year’s Roskilde Festival was my favorite one so far – I feel like I finally learned how to design the festival so that I get the most fun out of it. Already very excited about next year. I’m currently drinking a cider, enjoying my first day off in 12 days, looking at places to travel with my bestie next month and waiting someone very special to arrive so we can cuddle and watch Ted (I totally thought it was a movie for kids?!) before going to see the sequel in the movies tomorrow night.
Hope you guys have been doing great too? I’ll be back soon ?

I dont know if I’m scared of dying but I’m scared of living too fast too slow

I just returned to work after five days of vaction spent visiting my lovely grandparents, secondhand shopping, eating way too much food and enjoying more quiet surroundings – the fuzz of working in central Copenhagen is something I love, but sometimes smaller towns can be refreshing. I’ve also managed to go (rainbow) blonde for now after struggling to remove ye good ol’ purple hairdye that left a very unpleasant green tint in my hair. But I have a brand new bottle of Special Effect’s Cupcake Pink waiting for me, so it probably won’t be long until I return to my natural hair color – baby pink. Are you guys enjoying the spring weather kicking in?

Winter life photostorm

Just a few random shots from my camera taken over the last month or so. For some reason my usual winter blues seem a lot less blue this time around. It’s like the sun has been shining stronger. Probably also the balance of having a place that feel like home + work keeping me busy.

Ps. I’ve gone blonde.

500.000 blog views, 500 readers and red lips for christmas

I was just catching up on some blogs and checking back on my own when I saw that the view counter had hit 500.000 and that 500 readers had subscribed, which honestly, is kind of a milestone for me. This blog started out as a fun experiment to express myself back in the winter of 2010 and is to this day still a place where I post personal inspirations – sometimes more than others – and will always be a place I’ll return when I feel the need. It’s lovely to know that you guys like to take part in this little online diary of mine.

Things have been dull for me online, but my non-virtual life certainly hasn’t. I’m hoping to find a good balance between these two parts of me in 2015 and bring it all together for bigger, better things. There are big projects that I have been planning for so long and I think the time might be right soon. I miss interacting with you all both here and on youtube. 

But for now, thank you to each and every one of you for watching, commenting, supporting and sharing your opinions with me these past 4 years. I truly appreciate it ♥
Lips are Makeup Forever Aqua Lip liner in 8C, 11C, 12C, Rimmel Temptation lipstick with a dap of Urban Decay F-bomb lipstick and a Makeup Forever clear Aqua Rouge gloss on top.

2014 was amazing and it’s not even over

Snapshots from the past few weeks

I feel like it’s time to get personal with another little life update to follow up on the one I did back in early july. So the past six months have been amazing. And crazy. And just so unbelievable. I feel like I’ve accomplished so much, both on a personal, but also a professional level. As you guys know, I was very happy working with Makeup Forever, but in september I was headhunted by Urban Decay who offered me an even better job as a makeup artist on the first ever Urban Decay team in Scandinavia. It’s been a huge honor to help bring this amazing brand to Denmark, and as you can see from some of the pictures above, I’m so happy with my new team, boss and colleagues in general. This new position has and will make it easier for me to establish myself and do the things I really want to do.

As I mentioned in the earlier life update, getting a new apartment was a huge turning point in my life as well, but now five months later, this small apartment in a dorm is beginning so seem slightly cramped – not to mention the fact that it takes me roughly an hour to get to work. But I’m moving on saturday. An amazing lifesaver with a great big heart offered me a big, two bedroom apartment with a cute little balcony and a spacious kitchen where I can paint my walls lovely pastel colors and actually exist. It’s also gonna be so much faster for me to get to work, and I’m lucky enough to have such great friends in my life who offered to help move my stuff, without me even asking. 

When I go to bed at night and realize all the good that’s happening in my life, I can do nothing but fall asleep with a smile on my face. I guess making an actual effort to work hard on accomplishing the things you want really does work! Meeep, next up – home decor inspiration post! My fingers are tingling to get started! ♥
