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.

A bunch of photos from this years Coma Club, or rather, our little getting ready/pre party at Rebecca’s place. As you guys can tell we all kinda got obsessed with glitter this year, and my fabulous american friend Jayce who’s studying in Copenhagen this semester came by Makeup Forever where we did his makeup before going to Rebecca’s place to all dress up and have fun. From what I remember, most of of the night was amazing 😛

I’m hosting a party at Wonk in Malmö on saturday with the fabulous guys from Duo RAW and Kyle Farmery, so if you don’t know what to do this weekend and you’re in Denmark or Sweden come say hi to Rebecca and I at the party! The official event is right here.

Everyday Life Favorites Saline Simon

Working girl / favorite makeup products

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!
