Hey guys! As I finished my last exam for this month, my dad picked me up right after my exam, so I could be home for a few days. My sister usually works the weekends I stay, so finally she had a day off, and we spend the whole day together. We went for brunch in Herning and caught up. Thereafter we tried out our new makeup and test-shot some pictures. For dinner we picked up some sushi and watched Narnia until we eventually got tired. I haven’t been much out in January because of exams, so I looked forward to that day and gosh I’ve missed sushi so much! And not to mention my sissy, such a sweetheart, she paid for all of this since I’m totally broke!♥
I’m going back to my place tomorrow, since I have to be there before uni starts again. It was nice to have a mini-holiday, even though it did only last for 4-5 days. Today I tried a rose gold cut-crease look, and dressed up in my tradition attires – I mean, since I’m home with makeup AND my traditional clothes, then why not get some pictures for days, yeah? 😉
I have previously mentioned in my holiday-sum-up post (here) that I got some books for christmas. Not all of these are from christmas-17, and I haven’t got time to read them all either. In between the exam-revision, I needed a short break from all the stress. Besides from hitting the gym, and buy groceries, I took the time to read one of my books.
I finished “Transfervindue” in one evening, even though I’m a slow reader. There’s only 90 pages, so I thought why not just finish it immediately. It’s a danish book written by Maria Gerhardt. It’s about a cancer patient who moves into this fancy Hospice facility on Zealand where the sick people are treated by nuns and doctors. It’s like an isolated sanitized city just for terminally ill patients. It’s a dark comedy and about everything all the healthy people are doing wrong according to the main character.
Personally I think it’s a good book, and gives an inside on what it’s like to be a patient of such cruel decease, and almost heartbreaking details within those few pages. It’s worth the read.
I cannot wait till I get time to read my other books – I’m already few pages into “Niceville” (aka. The Help), and already want to order more books. I used to read so much when I was younger, and hate that I stopped. So I definitely want to read more and reduce watching movies for a while. I’ve made a wish list of books, and have a dream of mine to make my own home-library. That would be so cool! 🙂 ♥
P.s – have you noticed the updated header on my blog? I thought it was finally time to change it up a little, it’s been almost a year since I updated it last 😉
Hey guys! I’ve thought of doing some skincare posts – not that I’m an expert or anything, but just to share some products I use and works for me.
I’ve probably mentioned this before here, but I used to have really bad skin – acne prone, discoloration, scars and greasy. I did’t even use a daily moisturizer or any sort of skincare back then, and used to cover it all up with makeup. When I was 16-17 I decided to stop hiding my skin behind makeup and take care of the canvas itself.
I want to start off with my deep-cleanse routine, and then at some point introduce you to my daily skin care routine and nighttime routine. Of course I get too busy sometimes and skip it, but I try to do my best to get it done once/twice a week.
Productslist will be listed below.
When I deep-cleanse I:
Start off with a clean canvas – washing the face
Remove dead skin and clocked pores by using a black mask. I personally use 2 black masks – JorgObé black mask for center of my face and Boscia luminous black mask for outer part of my face.
Remove the black mask by peeling from the chin and pull it up toward my forehead.
Gently exfoliate. I use C-vitamin scrub to exfoliate the remaining dead skin and black mask I couldn’t peel off. Exfoliate in circular motions and avoid eye-area.
Wash the face again, and apply toner. I use the tea tree toner from The Body Shop.
Apply sheet mask to regain moist to the face. I recently went to Sri Lanka where I bought a handful of sheet masks from The Face Shop. It’s some Korean skincare, and so far I love them. Otherwise I suppose any sheet mask would do.
On the busy days where I don’t have time to put on masks, I use a multi-product (scrub + clay mask) from L’Oréal. I use it max twice a week and leave it on my face for 5 minutes before i wash it off in the shower.
I know I look a little lost on the pictures, please bear with me, I had no idea how to take these awkward pictures 😂
Before you start to scroll through my pictures to get a quick view – apologies; I’v been absent because of my exam period and had to spend time revising during the last week of december until now. I still have some exams in this month, so I’m just gonna make it quick 😉
Two days before christmas, my friend and I took the bus to Copenhagen, to go to tivoli. He was going home for the holidays and I had a party to attend next day, so we thought why not travel together and go to tivoli as well? I’ve only been there once and didn’t try anything. During christmas time, they decorated the place with lights and fake-snow and we immediately got the christmas-spirit. It was super cold, but totally worth it!
On the way we booked a table at Sticks & Sushi at the roof of Tivoli Hotel. The view was so nice, and I bet it would be even better during summer, where you can sit on the terrace. It was quite expensive, but the quality was top, so it made sense.
And of course we made it home to christmas, theres nothing much to tell, than we ate the traditional christmas dinner and dessert, opened presents and played some boardgames. I got more books, and cannot wait till I get time to read them 🙂
I got back to my apartment shortly after to revise, and celebrated New Year’s eve with my uni-friends and others. It was my first time celebrating NYE without my family, but it was different and a new experience. Before I end this post I want to wish you all a happy new year! 😉 ♥
