Lanzarote Photodiary

Kenneth and I just came back from one week on Lanzarote, Canary Islands, which is probably the prettiest place I have ever been in my entire life. Also, it was our first holiday together, so that probably added to the magical feeling as well haha. As you guys know we live in Scandinavia and the winters here are long and cold. It was the perfect time to get away just before spring kicks in here. We had around 21-23 degrees most days and were able to tan, swim in the ocean and wear lighter clothes.
We stayed at Blue Sea Hotel in Puerto del Carmen. The hotel was in the older part of town, but only a twenty minute stroll to the newer part of town with restaurants, bars, and shopping all located on the beachfront. We also spent a day in the capital Arrecife and two days in Playa Blanca (which is literally Paradise on earth) swimming in the crystal clear water and chilling on the golden sand. I can definitely imagine going back to Lanzarote and the Canary Islands again some day. However our next trip is to Gumbet, Turkey in September with Kenneth’s family and I’m very excited about that too.
I’m off from work today, so just wanted to check in and share these photos with you guys. Gonna have a look at the video clips i filmed during the holiday and see if it’s worth anything. Much love! ?

Hey guys. It’s been a while – hope you’re all doing great. I’m currently blogging from the passenger seat of my boyfriend’s car. We’re driving home to Copenhagen after a long weekend visiting my family in Jutland. It was his first time meeting my family and it went great. Well.. Expect for me nearly coughing up my lungs and/or drowning in snot. Having the flu is so delicious.
 
Anyway, fall has arrived and it’s beautiful and I’ve started taking more pictures again lately, so if my boyfriend keeps urging me to blog, maybe I’ll start posting more frequently. In all honesty, I never stopped feeling like a blogger or grew tired of doing this. The makeup artist part of my life just really took over the past year and a half. Have a lovely week everyone.

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.

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! ♥
