Just uploaded a brand new video after a seven month hiatus. Phew. I’m shocked at how easy it is to edit on my MacBook so I felt a little something inside that makes me want to post more. Now. Or tomorrow. Or very, very soon. Here’s what I was wearing in the video:

Dress from nelly.com
H&M necklace gifted from my colleages
Nail polish is L’Oreal Island In The Sun
Half Baked, High, Beware, Riff and Buck eyeshadow from UD
24/7 Perversion liquid liner from UD
Urban Decay Trap lashes
Urban Decay Sheer Obsessed lipstick

Oh, I also dyed my hair back to pastels. Really liking this purple/pink combo right now. I will probably always return to these colors I think.

Working girl / favorite makeup products

October 29, 2014
blogg-2
Lately I’ve been having a lot more days with makeup on, than days without and the products I use the most and work for me best has really stood out clear. I decided to share a little list of all my current favorite beauty products, since I usually get loads of question on instagram, tumblr and facebook about what I use. So here it is, easy peasy, everything about all of it in one place.
Skin products ♥

I use Makeup Forever Mat Primer to prime and perfect my skin. Then I either use a combo of Makeup Forever HD Foundation in 117 + Pro Finish Powder in 113 or a combo of Makeup Forever Mat Velvet Foundation in 20 and the pressed HD Powder. Favorite concealer is the Makeup Forever Full Cover concealer in shade 4. I always finish off with Urban Decay’s All Nighter Setting Spray that I love.

Brows ♥
My favorite brow product is the Makeup Forever Aqua Brow applied with the 274 brush. I use shade 15 all over the brow and add a little shade 25 towards the end. I also like to use the Urban Decay ”Buck” eyeshadow applied with an angled brush and finish off with Nars’ Brow Gel in Athens.
Contour, highlight & blush ♥

I’ve been loving the Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette – especially the highlighter is amazing and I use it on my cheekbones, nose and cupid’s bow for that perfect glow. Also love the Illamasqua Nymph blush.

Eyes ♥
My absolute most favorite thing in the universe right now is the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette that both smell and taste like chocolate (don’t ask, haha). I’ve been using it most days since I bought it and the gold shadow is the prettiest eyeshadow I have ever had. I’ve also been using the Urban Decay Naked2 palette a lot. For eyeliner the Makeup Forever Aqua Liner in 13 is what I love most and then either use Studio Sculpt Lash from MAC, Urban Decay Perversion Mascara or Smoky Lash from Makeup Forever. False lashes either  MUFE 14 or 15 ones.
Lips ♥
I love the Naked Lipgloss in Walk of Shame for everyday use, it makes my lips tingle and feel so soft so I reallyreally recommend it. Also love Makeup Forever Rouge Artiste Intense lipstick in number 23, 34 and 48 + the Makeup Forever Rouge Artiste Natural lipstick in 18N + MAC’s Saint Germain, as always.
Phew. That was a whole lotta info. Are you guys using any of these products yourself and is there any product you want to recommend for me to try out? Hope this post was helpful to you!

10 Christmas favorites

December 11, 2013
Tindra-duftlys
Scented candles with deep, yummy scents of vanilla and chocolate. I’m loving the Tindra collection from IKEA. They’ve been burning in my room for almost two weeks and the smell never get’s old or overwhelming. The cream colored one smells like waffles and vanilla ice cream, and I definitely need to restock soon.

I can’t get enough of big, fluffy, faux fur pillows to cuddle up with while watching movies or reading blogs, it adds such a warm and cozy feeling to the room and helps you stay hot too. I bought a big pillow similar to the white one in IKEA and the colorful ones I found at Amazon.

Hot chocolate, lot’s of it. It’s really an essential for me during christmas time and I love how you can make it your own. Some favorite ingredients of mine: soy milk or almond milk, vanilla ice cream, cinnamon, chopped chocolate either white or very dark to sprinkle on top and even served with belgium waffle sticks on the side. Yum!

Christmas gift shopping! It’s a perfect way of getting in the right christmas mood. I’ve personally been doing a lot of my gift shopping online this year (you’re free from the hazzle of screaming children, too many people in the stores and having to walk around looking for just the right thing + you can sit inside with your fluffy fur pillows and drink hot chocolate!)

Allowing yourself to watch at least a few of your favorite holiday movies. Mine includes The Grinch, all the Home Alone movies and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Playing around in the magical first snow that, if you’re lucky, sometimes fall in december. Winter wonderlands are amazing and even though getting hit by a snowball – yes this actually almost happened to my friends and I this weekend – going for a long walk and getting lost in the snow will always be an amazing thing.

Baking beautiful christmas treats, cakes and goodies. Christmas is the one time of year where I really allow myself to eat too many sweets and I’ve found a few really lovely vegan recipes that I’m going to try out. My littlebrother will be visiting next week before going on the grand family visiting tour, so I’m going to wait until next week with going bakery crazy. I’ll be sure to post the recipes that I like on my blog.

   

Making the perfect playlist with all your favorite christmas and holiday songs to play for you and your family on christmas eve and the days before and after. If you’re too lazy or don’t have time to make your own, there are a ton of nice on already on youtube. Here’s one paired with a fireplace video. Doesn’t get much better than that, huh?

The perfect sweater. There is nothing better to wear in christmas time, and a sweater can do so many things. No matter if they’re thick knitted, ripped, lavender or any chocolate/earth/cinnamon color or even raindeer printed, this is a must have for me. They don’t even have to be ugly and christmas like.. But they can be. All sweaters picked at romwe.com and sheinside.com

Ah, the final, but not to be forgotten thing on my list – glögg. Also called mulled wine in english, is mostly, I think, a nordic christmas tradition that I remember drinking in both Germany, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. It’s made by redwine, different spices and raisins and you drink it hot in the winter months! Everyone make it differently, and there’s a ton of other ingredients you can add to make it more personal. I just need this for christmas, it kinda completes this whole month. Have any of you guys tried it? And what are some of your christmas favorites?

Details of my home

September 12, 2013

Just felt like sharing a few photos of my current home with you guys, just a few detail shots of the things that really makes this place so amazing. It’s a pretty old building and the apartment is a lot bigger than where I used to live with my boyfriend last year. There’s tons of beautiful daylight and white ceilings and floors. The second picture from the top is my favorite spot to sit with my computer and some tea and just breathe in the city. All the furniture belongs to Lars, I just brought all my clothes, shoes and makeup with me (which takes up a lot of space haha) but I really like being here. The first picture is the outfit I’m gonna wear for the Cyril Hahn concert tonight, I might be able to take a few outfit photos before I leave as well.
