Hey guys 🙂 

Of course I’ll update you guys with the latest saree I’ve worn hehehehe. So here it is. This almost pastel lime/salmon colored georgette saree with thick border and patch work on, is a saree my mother picked up for me last year when she was on Sri Lanka. To be completely honest I didn’t like the color-combination at first – but now I don’t really mind, and love the gold embroidered border 😍. My friend and I found this building with white-painted walls and pallets. It wasn’t easy to find a soft lightning, so this was the best spot to click some pictures. Honestly, she did an amazing job with the angle and everything! 

I actually wanted to do a simple pinkish eye-look, but somehow ended up with a crazy crease color and took it too far -.- So I kept the lips pretty simple by using a lip pencil all over the lips and dap some lipstick lightly on top. Face-products listed below ↓. 🙂 ♥

10 Randoms

Random facts:

  1. I’ll never get tired of spaghetti bolognese – it’s my favorite dish ever, and no matter how many days in a row I eat it, I’ll never get tired of it!
  2. When I was a kid, I was a afraid of cats because i found their eyes to be very intimidating. Like they stared into my soul. I even had nightmares about them. I’m fine now though.
  3. I used to hate my lips, I thought they were too big compared to my small face. I’ve accepted it now.
  4. I get anxiety talking to strangers, and especially on the phone. Trust me, it was very challenging for me to work in a call-center.
  5. I love to do nothing – as in being home and do nothing. I could literally stare in the wall for hours and it wouldn’t bore me.
  6. I played football for a year when I was around 9-10 years old.
  7. If it was possible, I would have failed cooking class. I literally sucked at it and I’m pretty sure my teacher didn’t like me either. It didn’t stop me from cooking at home though.
  8. On daily basis I prefer not wearing makeup at all. Since January 2016 I decided to focus on healthier skin, so I didn’t have to wear a tons of makeup. Instead, I wear moisturizer and SPF everyday. 
  9. I have atleast 2-3 nightmares per night, and try to write them down in details as soon as I wake up.
  10. Since I was 3 I’ve slept alone in a room of my own – and that’s how I prefer to sleep ever since. Alone, in my own bed and in my own room. I also prefer the room to be completely dark and slightly cold with tons of pillows.

DeliMarché

Hey peeps! As you can see above, I’ve splurged on food again. No biggie anymore, but this brunch though… Okay, so my friends and I booked a table at DeliMarché, which is a café in Aalborg. Such a cute place. Every first saturday in a new month, they have this brunch-buffet. We had talked about try it for months, so we finally did it. It was so delicious and formal. They got me at waffles, haha. Oh yeah, and drinks were included in the price. 

After brunch we went to centrum for shopping and walked along the harbor. There were so many people out there, just chilling, eating ice-cream/frozen yogurt. It wasn’t like hot that day or sunny, but it wasn’t cold either.

I’ve tried my friend’s MAC studio fix plus powder a few times, and thought it was time to purchase it myself. Somedays when I’m going out, I want a sheer coverage without having to apply any foundation or concealer, and this is a good solution. It is probably the only powder that doesn’t look too “powdery” or “cakey” on my skin – which is perfect for day-wear. I bought it in shade NC43, which matches my forehead- and chin area, so it won’t look ashy on me.

So far I’ve applied it with a kabuki brush (Nilens Jord NO. 110), but I want a more dens short-brisseled kabuki brush, so the powder can be worked in to the skin. :)♥

As I promised in my birthday-post, here’s some of the gifts I got from my sister and best friends. When I opened my presents I was screaming and so overwhelmed! I never imagined they’d get their hands on these items for me – I am so happy!

My sister and one of my friends gave me the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance pallet. The colors are stunning neutrals, warm berry tones. As you can see on the second picture, I’ve already dug my brushes into the pans, and tried out some colors. They’re super buttery and blend able, and can easily build up the desired color-intensity. I tried to swatch the colors on my arm, but the photo doesn’t quite justify their true color-pay-off. 🙁 You can look forward to some beauty-looks done with this pallet 😀

One of my other friends gave me this Rituals body mist. This brand – omg – is so luxurious. She already gifted me a nice hand cream from Rituals. It smells so good and has SPF in it. The size is perfect to toss in the pencil case or purse. The body mist is such a rich smell, that reminds me of spring where the flowers blossoms and the air is filled with different floral scents mixed with orange – which I btw love! Gotta be my special-occasion scent 😉 ♥
