Products I Regret Buying

We’ve all been there. Casually strolling around the drugstore, Sephora or even better we went travelling and as we were there we decided that this particular product is going to change our lives for good, so we buy it. But! As we get back home and weeks, months or even years pass by we suddenly realize that maybe the reason that the very same product we bought on the very casual day maybe wasn’t worth it after all. I’ve been there and you would probably be lying to yourself if you said that you’ve never bought anything that you’ve regretted. I’ve done this so many times and will probably continue to do so. Being a beauty enthusiast really means that you’ve got this urge to just go out and try certain products because it has so many good reviews. Well, I’ve decided to come clean about it and I’m going...
   

My 7 Favorite Blushes

If there’s one makeup product I’ve come to love more than anything – it’s most definitely blush. Some blushes I love more than others, but from my makeup collection I’ve gathered 7 blushes that are my absolute favorites. You’ll notice that some of them are similar in color, but may differ in terms of the shine and matteness.

Bronzy Makeup Look

I’ve been wanting to do a bronzy makeup look on my friend for such a long time, but being caught up with school we just never had the time. However, the other day we promised each other that right after uni we would go straight to my apartment, eat some food, watch a quick reality show and THEN film a makeup tutorial. We kept our promise, even though we were starting to feel a little bit tired after the food. The look was supposed to be an everyday look, but we just kept talking and I had so many ideas in my head that the look turned a little bit towards an evening look, but by all means don’t hesitate to wear this look on an everyday basis. That would be pretty cool now that I think of it. We filmed the process and you can see how we got this...
   

Color Inspo: Black & Blue

Bag: here, Stilettos: here, Shirt: here, Pants: here. It’s not a secret that one of my favorite colors is black. It’s a color that goes with everything and the simplicity of it makes it so versatile. I asked my roommate to pick a completely random color and she stopped for a moment, turned to look at me and chose blue, which is how this color combo came together. It’s a clever color combination because black and blue complement each other so well. I put together three outfits with the two colors black and blue and quite like the result.

Celesti – March 2017

Not long ago I received my second Celesti box in the mail. I excitedly opened the package and found a leather makeup bag in brown, a card and a big bow headband. This month’s theme is about being bold, vibrant and glowing with a focus on blushy cheeks, colorful eyes and nice skin. I opened the makeup bag and got happier and happier by each thing that I received. It’s as if every month gets better and this is only the second time I receive a Celesti bag and so far I’ve been pleasantly surprised. The first thing my hand reached out for was the OMG! 2-step mask and I was beyond thrilled. I’ve been wanting to try out the bubble mask for such a long time and it just happened to be in my second Celesti bag. They’ve become so popular on Instagram and almost every beauty guru has tried them out, so...

Casual Day in Copenhagen

Saturday was quite a quiet day for roomie and I as we basically had no plans. She had to work and it was completely spontaneous that we decided that to take a little walk around Østerbro and take a few outfit pictures. The weather was amazing and the sun was shining so bright, it couldn’t get any better. We walked around a little and then saw some beautiful old buildings and immediately knew that we had found the perfect spot for the pictures. The shirt that I was wearing had been hanging in my closet for a long time and was just waiting to be taken outside.
   

February Favorites

Throughout February I got the chance to try out some new products, but I also started loving some things that I already had laying around. I ordered a couple of things online and bought some goodies on my recent trip to Hamburg, which I have a separate post here. This time I decided to film my February favorites and in the video you may notice that the background is a little bit different and that’s because I just got new lights – they’re two soft boxes that I got from Amazon, which my friend Morten from mortenandreasen.com suggested to me and I really like them so far, but I still need to learn how to adjust them a little bit better to make it look more flattering.

Current Cravings – March

It’s finally Friday and I’ve been so busy with school these past two weeks that I haven’t had the time to do anything. I’m studying communication at the university that I go to and these past two weeks have been all about the speech workshop that I’m attending. It’s a really fun class that forces you to be out there and speak up. Today we had to present a 1.5 hour long presentation for the class and that felt like such a long time, but my group and I made it. Right after uni I had to buy some groceries for my apartment, which I also didn’t have the time for the past couple of days because the preparation time for the presentation took a long time. However, I’ve been working all week trying to put together a collage with all the things that I’m currently craving. It’s so hard...

Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette Review

Huda Kattan has definitely become one of my favorite beauty gurus, her Insta feed is inspirational and her blog is super helpful when you need beauty tips. Not long ago, Huda came out with her very first eyeshadow palette and the moment it hit Cult Beauty I tried my best to order one, but I was just too slow. So, I did what any other dissapointed makeup enthusiast would do. I signed up for the waiting list. Two months went by and it wasn’t until I woke up one morning and casually checking my emails to find out that it was back in stock. I ran out of bed, grabbed my laptop and pressed order. 10 working days later I got a lovely package with my palette. Boy, was I excited. No exaggeration intended.
   

Celesti – February 2017

Back in November I discovered a new type of beauty box. It was completely random. I was scrolling through Facebook and stumbled on an ad from Celesti promising great beauty products every month. Not long ago, I stopped my subscription to Goodiebox, not because I didn’t like that box, but I just felt like I got too many creams, hairspray etc. which I wasn’t using, so basically the majority of the content in the box wasn’t put to good use. However, since Celesti was so brand new back in November it was really hard to get a box for the reason that their boxes were limited to a number of subscribers. I tried the first month, but it was impossible to get one, so I just gave it and stopped thinking about it. That was until the beginning of January, where I got an email from Celesti saying that they’re...

Hamburg Haul

Primark has got to be one of my favorite stores, especially when it comes to inexpensive clothing. You’ll literally find anything in there – clothes, makeup and homeware. You name it! We went there on both days and the worst part about it is that no matter how hard you try to convince yourself that you’ve bought enough, it just doesn’t work. I know, this sounds like I have a major shopping issue and it probably is true. But, I’ve gathered all the things in one bag and filmed a haul with all the goodies that I bought from Primark as well as a beauty store called Douglas. If you do get a chance to visit the nearest Primark, please do! Meanwhile, click play and watch the video.

Hamburg Trip | Part 2

The rest of the evening on the 14 was spent eating and having some good fun. We fell asleep around 1 and woke up the next day at 7, which was quite difficult because we were so exhausted from the day before. We, however, managed to get up and get dressed because we had another long day ahead of us. We had to go back to Primark because some girls forgot to get some things and then afterwards we would continue shopping around the central station. We didn’t have that much time to eat breakfast at the hotel because we had to hurry if we wanted to catch the train around 16.
