Childhood Memories #5


One of the things I love about pictures is how they hold the memory of a moment or a whole night even though they might not portray this special moment. Right now I have gotten into designing/creating my own pocket calender with pictures of my friends and family and all of my favorite TV shows. While looking for pictures of me and my sister, I found this gem hidden in one of my folders.

Sweater Weather Tag


I have finally sorted almost everything out for my new room (hooray! for that). There´s still little bits and bops I want to get to improve it all but those things can wait for a moment. I have decided that I won´t get out of the house today. I will stay in my PJ´s and in that overly comfortable bathrobe and get some work and reading done. I am feeling autumn coming as I stare into the grey sky out of my window and I am excited. I am bringing back the Sweater Weather Tag from last year created by Lexie, you can watch her video here. Honestly, I have taken the questions from Ingrid´s version as there are a few changes in it that I quite like, her video can be watched over here. Let´s get started!

My Top Seven - House Haul


If you haven´t noticed that I am in the process of moving right now, you must have lived under a rock. As stressful as it is, I finally got a perfect excuse to go to Ikea multiple times without feeling guilty. I also went shopping to get all the things other things I needed. If I was to show you everything I bought, this post would be longer than the great wall of china, so here are my top seven buys.

Packing Up My Stuff


I am sitting in a new room with new furniture in a town I barely know with a new radio station being my background music hundreds of kilometers from my parents, my sister and my friends away. It´s all so new and I am scared as hell for everything that is to come. Living alone won´t be the problem as I actually enjoy the freedom I have but I have no idea what starting at uni will bring with it. Will I find friends? Will I like psychology as much as I think I will. When will I see my friends and family the next time? Will I get along with my roommate?

Empties: The First One


You can´t always get what you want - did anyone else sing this? - and I had to learn it for moving. I wanted to take everything with me but for the sake of leighter packing and a fresh start I had to use up a few things. I then realized that I had never done an empties post and here we are now.

Leaving


At the start of this blog I promised you to always be honest here and I have been. I will not make something sound pretty if it´s not. Just to clarify this from the start: I am not leaving this blog because it and anyone who reads it means to much to me. But I am leaving the nest and moving not only out of my family´s house but a 6 hour drive away.

My Top Seven - Happy Songs


If you should know anything about me it´s that I don´t do anything without music. Getting ready in the morning? Listening to music! Making Lunch? Listening to music! Writing a blogpost? Listening to music. Sometimes I lie down and just listen to music or I just have a good old dance out to get me motivated - I took that idea from Grey´s Anatomy, oops. I´ve put together a playlist containig seven songs that currently just make me happy and have me dancing in no time. I think they really help when I have to get up early.

First Impressions FOTD


I had a bit of time before I met up with my best friend for a photoshoot yesterday. I decided it would be a good idea to try out some of the new make up I bought when I was in London and I am quite happy with how it turned out. It worked really well for the photoshoot. So here´s the finished look and my first impression of some products.



Face - Maybelline Dream BB Cream, Manhattan Powder Mat Make Up, Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Cheeks - Borjouis Chocolate Bronzer, P2 Beauty Stories Blush, Topshop Glow
Eyes - Catrice Absolute Nude Eyeshadow Palette, Catrice Liquid Liner, Maybelline The Rocket Volume Express Mascara
Lips - Tanya Burr Lipgloss

I´ve been using the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer for a while now and I quite like it. It doesn´t have the best pigmentation but it stays matte all day. I am in the process of fully testing it against my other concealers to write a full review on it later. I also used the Real Techniques Powder and Shading Brushes for the first time - well I used the Powder Brush before but how could I not. They´re incredibly soft and blend out everything so well.

Topshop Glow is something I have never tried before. I like it but I am not sure how much you can actually see it on my face. The same goes for Borjouis´ Chocolate Bronzer. Maybe I should have bought both a shade darker. I also still need to find the right way of applying both but that is something I will work out when I use them more often.

I could also finally use Tanya Burr´s Lipgloss in Aurora. I first thought it would be a very subtle color but I was quite wrong. The lipgloss is quite opaque and therefore still changes the color of my lips as well as adding glitter to them. It smells absolutely amazing but I haven´t gotten around to tasting it yet - or I haven´t noticed the taste yet. The only thing that bothers me a bit is how sticky the lipgloss is. I´ve used some lipglosses that aren´t sticky at all but this one just catches my hairs and never lets them go.


All in all, I can say that I am really happy with my buys and I didn´t waste a single penny. Time will show if my opinion of the products will change with further uses but I don´t hope so.

Healthy Back To School Snacks


When I was at school I was already pretty big on healthy eating. I always found that other people´s snacks for breaks looked more delicious than my healthy snacks. I don´t know if anyone else feels the same way but I was then sat there staring at other people´s snacks and unhappily ate mine. I never figured out how much fun healthy eating actually is. Now I have found a few snacks that are healthy and look absolutely delicious. I will definitely take them with me to university.

My Top Seven - Back To School Beauty


September is that magical month where all tv shows come back from their summer break but it´s also the time of the year where we all have to go back to school. I liked school for the most part - except for getting up early and boring classes - but now I´ve graduated and university doesn´t start until October. But I know what school is like and I was wearing make up from seventh grade one. I have gathered some essentials since then and wanted to share them with you.

Skincare Party by Mary Kay



When I was younger my mom used to go to Tupperware-Parties all the time. It was a fashion back in the 90s and early in the 2000s. That way we now have loads of Tupperware containers at home, so much actually that they don´t even fit into our kitchen and we have some in the basement as well. Now, years after this, a new party is taking over: The Skincare Party.

August Favorites


September has begun. That does not only mean that my little blog is now a year old - which I am still totally excited about - but also that it is monthly favorites time. During the last month I bought quite a lot of new beauty products and I have found some new favorites.

Blog´s First Birthday & Giveaway



You might have noticed that my blog was offline for almost a day. This will practically explain itself when you have a look around. I switched a few things up and created a new design for my blog. Why now? you might ask. Well, it´s my blog´s first birthday today!
