Hey guys!

Remember that post I did with a smokey-glitter-cut-crease-eyelook with plum lips? No? Then you can quickly view it (here) 😉 .

Anyways, here’s the second look I did with the same makeup – only difference is I changed out the lip color (NYX lip cream (Berlin)). I styled it differently. Actually just wearing a black tee and found some jewelries I had laying around. The earcuffs are from H&M some years ago, and the nose-ring is from Gina Tricot. I think the gold accessories went well with the golden glitter liner. 

I tied half of my hair up and split the front hair obviously as I could, and got this almost grudge-90’s looking… yeah.. It was just a bit different from what I’ve ever done, and I was amazed by the result 😂.

Yup, I got more makeup looks to share – trust me, I had a little too much time for myself and painted my face like it was nobody’s business 😅 ♥

milk and honey 🐝

img_4100 img_4101 img_4102 img_4103

Hey peeps.

In beginning of November I ordered a lexicon online, and looked at other books (just for no reason), and came across this one. “milk and honey” by Rupi Kaur. I’ve stumbled upon some poets from this book on the internet a few times, and thought it could be interesting to read some more of it. I’ve never really read poems/poetry books before, so I didn’t know what to expect. The book wasn’t that expensive so I just ordered it. 

First of all. I love this book. It’s simple yet so deep. I wish my 16-year-old-me had this book, because I’m pretty sure it could have been helpful to go through a tough teen with some hope and relatable quotes. It makes you feel like you’re not alone when it comes to all the emotions she writes about. 

The illustrations are also made by Kaur, and they fit in perfectly with the simplicity of her work. I’m down to buy her other book “the sun and her flowers”. Or generally books. My interest in reading books is slowly coming back to me. It’s like an escape ticket for moment from all the chaotic days, and reading 30 min. per day gives your mind a (needed) break. 

I can only recommend this book, especially if you’re open for deeper simple stories and poets 🙂 ♥

Hey guys! As my parents wouldn’t let me go back to my apartment after our Sri Lanka trip, I tried to entertain myself by painting my face with some of the makeup I had at my parents’ house. I certainly didn’t hold back dressing up with the new jewelries and pieces I bought from SL. Here’s another look I just randomly created. 

Honestly I’m not as creative or good with hairstyling as doing my makeup but I tried to give it a chance. As you can see, I just pulled it out again and let my hair down. My go-to look to be honest. Do I have to complain about my camera quality again? You probably know by now. I’d already taken a few pictures before I realized I forgot my bindi -.- so I had to take some more awkward pictures. 

Here’s a product list of what’s on my face (as I remember it:

  • Foundation: Becca luminous foundation (warm honey),
  • Concealer: Nars radiant creamy concealer (caramel),
  • Eyeliner: Maybelline master ink (black),
  • Mascara: L’Oreal carbon black,
  • Lashes: Huda beauty lashes (Farah),
  • Shadow: MAC (sketch), MAC mineralizing skinfinish (sun power) + MAC studio fix powder (NC43),
  • Glitterliner: Urban Decay (midnight cowboy),
  • Brows: ABH dipbrow (ebony)
  • Lips: MAC lipstick (rebel),
  • Blush: MAC  blush (peachtwist),
  • Highlighter: Laura Geller (gilded honey)

I styled another look with this exact makeup, which I’ll post (hopefully) soon, so stay tuned for that :)♥

Ravage⚠ in Odense


img_2618 img_2622 img_2651 img_2667

Hey, so here’s another catch up post from when I was doing my SL journey on the blog. I went to Odense for like the first time. I mean, I’ve driven through Odense a couple of times but never actually been in town. I went broke in Zara because – let me be honest – I thin we probably only have 3-4 Zara stores in Denmark, and the closest Zara store is the one in Odense. I personally like going to their physical store than the online store. I just can’t find anything I like online, compared to their stores. I’ve posted some pictures of my purchases. The first hoodie is from New Yorker, but the other items are from Zara, and I absolutely love them! Who knows, maybe I can find time to click some pictures with the outfits, but I can’t promise anything 😬.

I’m absolutely in love with the pants! So in this season and I wish I could’ve worn them more, but it’s too cold now 😥 I also love the details on the sleeves on the hoodie. It’s a cropped hoodie with a street-sporty look to it. The cropped t-shirts are actually the same in different colors. I just couldn’t choose between them so I got them both and went broke ._.♥

Like the Dancing Emoji

Heeey! So I finally got a saree post for you all! It’s been too long honestly. Last time I did a post about the last saree I wore was in summer. Gee, but here is 1/6 of my new tamil attire from Sri lanka. I specifically looked out for a simple red saree with a golden border. I probably went through 3-4 shops to find one in Colombo. Since I didn’t get the blouse stitched for this saree, I just used a universal gold blouse (you’ve probably noticed me using this sometimes before). I think it went super well with the simple saree. 

As for my hair and makeup; I made a brown/red smokey eye with Urban Decay Heat palette and ABH modern renaissance palette. Wore my favorite pair of lashes by Huda Beauty in Samantha – I swear those lashes are almost falling apart of being used for 2 years now 😅. I highlighted with my new highlighter Uranus by Jeffree Star cosmetics x Manny MUA. Lips are a combo of H&M lipvenyl in Siren and MAC Ruby Woo. I braided my hair and brought it forward. The earrings are also from Sri Lanka, and I’m absolutely obsessed with them! 🙂 ♥

Blind The Haters, Honey

img_3189 img_3196 img_3198 img_3200 img_3204

As you can see on the pictures, I’m ready to blind the entire world with my Jeffree Star Cosmetics x Manny MUA skin frost Uranus. I ordered it on Jeffree Star cosmetic’s webshop (and had to pay double because of tax -.-), because I wanted it before it sod out. My sister already purchased their earlier collaboration skin frost in EclipseEclipse is a peachy iced shade, whereas Uranus is more like a golden iced shade. 

When I swatched it, it came off almost too powdery. I wasn’t quite sure about it – but the real test was with a brush on my face, and it didn’t let me down! Of course it looks more illuminating spraying it with a mineral water spray or a setting spray. I received the product in October, and of course I’ve used a couple of times. I will post other posts of the looks where I’m wearing it ;)♥

Sweet mother of…

img_3178 img_3179

Hey guys! I’ve been busy lately (still am and will be until january), so I took some time to pre-write some posts, which I’ll publish during the busy time 😅.

Despite my busy schedule, I try my best to make time to hang out with my friend K, and catch up. We both were craving cupcakes but couldn’t find a cupcake place in Aalborg (at least not online), so we decided to go to Pennylane in central Aalborg. I can’t describe how excited we got when we found out they had cupcakes! Coincidence? I don’t think so 😂. Since it was such a nice sunny day, we also decided to order some smoothies. 

Not only did the cupcake look super pretty, but also tasted soooo good. Unfortunately I’m probably not going to buy it that often since the price was a little too high for a student. I can already promise you that there will be more food-related posts, because that’s almost all I do 🙊

Noir Desi

img_2692 img_2693 img_2696 img_2697

Hey guys! Finally I get to post something else, and first of all; I have to find the definition of Desi. Anyways – I’m brown, obviously, and when I cam home from Sri Lanka, my parents didn’t want me to go back to my apartment immediately. So I had basically nothing else to do but paint my face and try on the new bling- blings, and take awful lot of selfies. Yes – I am going to share some of them with you 😀 As I left most of my pallets and makeup at my apartment, I had to improvise with whatever I had at my parents house – and I honestly think it turned out okay. 

This first look, was inspired by heavy bridal desi eye-makeup. I usually don’t go heavy on with black shadow, but decided to go all-in with black shadow, cut-crease and glitter on the whole eyelid. To balance that out I chose a nude for lips. 

I finished off by wearing my gold jewelries with pearls on, to get a more royal look, and black cropped top with a black dupatta from an anarkali. I bought a fake nose-ring, which is actually supposed to wear as a septum, but I wore it like… yeah as you can see on the pictures 🙂

Product details below, and I’ll show you some other looks I did as well later 😉

Hey! After a looong road trip we finally reached our final and last destination, Colombo. The last two days we spent the nights at Hotel Mirage Colombo, which is a 4 star hotel at the beach side. I cannot describe how wonderful it was to sleep under air-condition after 3 weeks in the heat. And taking a hot shower. 

We did a lot of shopping in Colombo as well. I bought 2 sarees, 2 anarkalis and 1 lehenga. I’ll show you my purchases at some point when I get to wear them 😉 But the places I think had the best selections were probably Little Asia and Kamsins. You may find their pieces a bit pricey, but I only bought a few items and I LOVE them! 🙂 

On our last night we went to a famous beach (of course I don’t know the name of it -.-), where lots of people  were chilling, flying kits and markets filling the shore. The pictures doesn’t do justice for how amazing and lively the atmosphere was. It was super cozy and 27°C at night 😀

I’m ending my Sri Lanka Journal with this post, and I hope you all enjoyed it, even though it was 12-posts long :p Now I can go back to the usual blogstuff, such as new products/reviews, food, events, OOTD etc. I will probably not go back to Sri Lanka immediately, but wait few years, so I have something to look forward too again :)♥

Morning Hike (11)

img_2463 img_2466 img_2468 img_2472 img_2483 img_2487 img_2498 img_2500 img_2512 img_2516 img_2518

Hey! Okay I have one last post left in line before I wrap up my Sri Lanka journey. I know it has been a long one, I’m sorry, but I’ll make it super short in the next (and last) one 😉 

The following morning, we took a hike to the little Adam’s peak, where we could spot our hotel from the view. It was crazy! We hiked at noon, so it started to get very hot by then, which made it a bit harder to hike. With my fear for heights I decided to join the hike anyways because I heard the view was worth it. I took some pictures along the way, as you can see. It was beautiful – one of the prettiest views I’ve seen on the trip for sure! It’s a must see!

After the hike we moved on to see another attraction in Ella – which is the Nine Arch Bridge. It’s a bridge between Ella and Demodara, and it’s built without a single steal! The bridge contains 9 arches and connects two mountains, from Demodara train station. We actually wanted to take the train, but the waiting-time was too long, so we decided to drive to Colombo again – our last destination.

As I revealed; Colombo is the last destination and post from my Sri Lanka journey. So stay tuned. 😉

Morning with a View (10)

Heeey! As we left the english cottage hiiiigh up in on the mountains, we decided to find a place less cold to spend the last night at. We found this very nice hotel on the mountain-side named Ella Mount Heaven with the coolest balcony view ever!

The hotel was really nice in general – both in service and the rooms were very clean. Our balcony had the view to the mountains from the west side – which meant that we could see the sun rise from east behind the mountains. Yaaaas! So I sat alarm, so I could get ready for the sun to rise while enjoin a cup of tea. 🙂

My cousin and brother had the same idea so we watched the sunrise together in the calming atmosphere. It’s definitely worth the visit! The view was just mastic! Makes us people feel so small in this enormous world. 

We ate breakfast in their restaurant – buffet – and got ready for our last day at the road trip before we headed back to Colombo. My next post is going to be a quick one on our hiking 🙂 ♥

Ambewala – New Zealand farm (9)

img_2208 img_2210 img_2211 img_2213 img_2215 img_2217 img_2220 img_2221 img_2222 img_2226 img_2228 img_2232 img_2236 img_2238 img_2244 img_2246 img_2248 img_2250 img_2251

Heeey! Our trip continues in Nuwara Eliya to Ambewala New Zealand farm, where they produce dairy products. Guys… cows. There were soooo many cows and the landscape was soooo beautiful!! Wow, my brother and I freaked out seeing the mountain landscape with cows and fog. Just wow! Above you see some pictures of out trip to the farm. Btw. I was quite surprised about how the cows were eager to lick our faces, lol.

Next up we visited a botanic garden (actually a couple of few), but I won’t go through them, since the most of the pictures are just me being all nerdy about the plants. So instead we’ll move on to some more beautiful landscape, and this hotel with the most amazing view 😀 ♥
