The Human Brain

After reading this, you will notice that the the human brain doesn't inform you that the the word "the" has been repeated twice every time.

Perfect Little Gift

I went shopping the other day just before Christmas (I know. I'm bad). When I came home, I realized how cute a gift this would be! The right kind of goodie-bag for a gal like me. With this little bag of products you can apply the easiest and most effortless/lazy make up. You might want to toss a lipstick in the goodie-bag that can be used both on the lips and cheeks, if you're one that can't live without a little extra pigment. I recommend all things in this post! The bag consists of four things:

Foundation from La Roche Posay -which is  marvelous in all ways
 Garnier roll on eye- pigmented and a light consistency. I like  
Foundation brush by Mcosmetics- cheap and works good
Fiberwig mascara - absolutely awesome.

Naked Without Them

I have many rings and I like to dazzle my hands with them. It seems that I have collected a little collection, and from it these three stands out. I absolutely adore these rings, thus I have worn them (not all at once!) every single day for the past few weeks. The cross-two finger ring is from Urban Outfitters, the big "amor" ring is from.. Well, I actually don't know and the "Evil eye" ring is from Topshop. They're so simple, yet gothic and excentric. My fingers feel bare without them.

I like this outfit. It's so so simple and comfortable, yet it still makes me feel put together. The shoes I am wearing are heels made out of wood. It's sounds uncomfortable but they're actually really nice to walk around in. All of my clothing is from H&M. T-shirt & cardigan= mens section,  tights & pencil skirt= Everyday, Shoes= Pieces.

Gift From My Elf

These tastes so so so good. Ask everyone who got one. They'll tell you the same. 
Thank you Elf.

Glitz & Glam

I really want a glittery eye for New years eve! I have this super awesome white/gold-ish glitter pigment from Gosh called "10 Golden Star" and I love it to bits. I've had it for a long time, but I never really use it. The colour is gorgeous, but it's a hassle to work with and the glitter particles gets everywhere. I'm going to coordinate these glittery eyes with another friend for the last day of 2011, so let's see what we'll come up with.

I love this shimmery, wet-ish look that the pigment gives. My camera does not do it justice!

Colour Definer from Maybelline in Satin Dragee to whole lid
Apply Urban Decay's Maui Waui on the whole lid- stop at crease
Then Chopper at the outer part of my lid 
(these two eye shadows are very glittery already, so you could stop at this step) 
Add a layer of the 10 Golden Star pigment on top of the eye shadow 
Apply eyeliner to water line and tight-line
Smudge eyeliner on the top lash line and the outer lower lash line
Optional: run Smog on the lower lash line
Curl those lashes
Apply lots and lots of mascara

Denmark Is Catching Up

I was out dining with my friend. We had already decided upon what food we should have and so we moved on to the drinks. I scanned the page and saw: Mango Lassi! I almost fell out of my chair of excitement, haha. It's an asian yoghurt-ish kind of drink with the taste of mango, which you usually pair with spicy food (thus the cooling yoghurt). Nom nom. I was disappointed though, because they didn't have anymore when I ordered it- which I don't really get, but I guess it's not homemade?

Meh, I'll just try it out the next time.

Denmark's Equivalent To Starbucks

Two weeks ago had a lot of beautiful sunny days. I had some time, whilst waiting for someone special, and so I was glad that I happened to bring my camera to snap some shots of the gorgeous weather! Thank god I did so, because the weather is such a dread now.

In this post I am wearing a top from a brand that I love, which is called: Kimchi Blue. I got a hold of their clothes in Urban Outfitters, so I'm not sure if they have other retailers in Copenhagen. I hope so! I am also wearing a jacket that I bought quiet some time ago at a second hand store, and I heart it as well. I have used it everyday since. I just recently got some flats from them too. I can't wait to wear those babies out!

Yes, but now to the main point. In Denmark we don't have Starbucks (shock!). Or, yes, but only one at the airport in Kastrup, which is just waaay to far away for a cup of coffee. But we do have something else, to make up for the missing of the famous coffee shope: Baresso. It's kind of the same idea, by not only selling coffee but other both cool and warm beverages + cakes and sandwiches. There's a Baresso everywhere, and there is even three on Købmagergade in Copenhagen, which is a short pedestrian street compared to Strøget!-where there is also some Baressos. Their image is different though, but they both remain as an urban treat.

Revolutionary Thinking

I'm drinking for evolution, so that my children will have a stronger liver.

I have a lot of wallets, but I like to find and pick out my one and only, and use it for several years. The last wallet I had lasted for three years. I'd like to think that this one will too. I was out shopping with my sister when I saw it, and fell in love at just one glance! It's so simple, spacious and chic. And beige. It's from Monki and I have already had it for many months. It was quite inexpensive too. I love it.

The Ruthless & Innocent

I had bought Innocent from Topshop a couple of weeks ago. Even with the smell and taste of soap -which is quite horrid- I really like it. It is a great "neutral" pink, but with enough cool tones to turn you lips from= drag to sassy.
     I really like it on my lips and I love it on my friend's (this is actually her Innocent lipstick, haha) who is more olive-y than me. It is not obviously easy to pull off, but I think anyone could do it.

Ruthless is a colour that I have wanted for a long time. Sad to say that it disappointed me. I guess I had too many expectations and an impossibly high standard for this lippy. For its price I would have expected more glam and smoothness, but it is really hard to work with. The colour is a wonderful dark matte purple, but you can not use it sparingly by itself. It works together with a little lip gloss though!
     It's just really hard to wear. The colour is strong and therefor not all that suitable for a student as I. It's hard to apply and it's very dry. The scent is also a minus here to. So my conclusion is: It's nice, but not something I would recommend. I think you can find better alternatives out there for a cheaper price.

This is why, I read everything backwards.

If you watch Titanic backwards, It is a heart warming tale of a ship which jumps out of the water and saves lots of drowning people.

Everyday Is A Wednesday

I have been living as if it has been wednesday all week. Even when it was sunday. Which sucked, because I had a mild panic attack when I suddenly woke up twenty minutes before school started (it takes me 30 minutes to get to school), before realizing that it was sunday and I fell right back to sleep. 

I am reading again (yay), and I have just bought three additional books to the pile of unread books that lingers on my shelfs. I started and finished a book within two days, simply because it was so freaking good. Went out and bought the second volume, the day after I had bought the first one. Whilst shopping for the follow-up I came upon a volume four in a series -that is one of my all-time favorites- which I believed only consisted of three. After overcoming the feeling of shame, for not knowing there existed a book no. 4, I simply had to purchase and read that one too. I don't get, where I find the spare-time.

I went out to dine fancy with a friend yesterday. We went to café Blå Hund and ordered two burgers and some drinks. The burgers were massive. The size of my head. Literally. Like, in volume. It tasted great, so hurray for there being a lot of burger. After dinner we went out and bought some small christmas presents for our friends and went back to her place and ate ice cream. Yum. 

I know the picture is very random, but I like it. I prefer using pictures that I have taken myself, don't ask me why. It's calming on some level.

I got this wayyy back in the days (or, not wayyy back, but more like 2009-ish) when I was is Paris. This is a product that has been very hyped and is very praised. So, how can I not try it out?

Mac's Painterly Paint Pot is actually an eyeshadow, but it is famously known for being an eye-primer. It is flesh toned and matte and has decent coverage, and is therefor a good option for those with apparent veins on their eyelids. I once used this as an under-eye concealer, and it worked fab. -Good coverage and long-lasting.

The formula is nice! It is creamy and soft, just how I like it. I didn't think that it would last long, though, whether drying up would happen first or me using it up. Let me say, that I have used it fairly much, but I have only dented it. It has cracked a little around the edges, but it is still super blendable and smooth.

The packaging is really nice too. As all Mac make up, it is minimalistic and somewhat sturdy. It does a good job on keeping the product's moist.

Should you try it out? YES! Should you splurge on it? YES. Is it a must? WELL, it's not really  must, but it is nice to have in your collection. Go to Mac, try it out I'd say.

That awkward moment when you play hide and seek with Darth Vader but you can hear him breathing

Pretty Pink Please?

I went on a hunt. A hunt for a pretty, bubble-gum bright blush. After a few weeks of research, I ended up buying this product. It is Loréal's True Match blush in Vrai Rose/ True Rose. I was initially drawn to this, because it said "for fair skin" on the packaging, and I tend to, unfortunately, turn pasty and ghost-like. Very unflattering!

I had actually picked this up a couple of months ago, but seeing the price I opted out. Now it was on offer and I could simply not say no this time around.

It is very pink indeed! But if blended too much, it becomes reddish -no it's not my skin turning red, it IS the blush. This seems odd to me, and is sadly a big minus. But only because I naturally have very flushed cheeks (damn you pigments!).

Packaging is crap, but it is drugstore, so no real surprise there.

I would actually recommend this blush. It is nice, pigmented, stays on and can be found at a reasonable price. But I would only recommend this for light- to medium/tan skin tones and specifically for people with no colour to their cheeks, whatsoever. So for you with rosacea, stay away!
