I just got a Tumblr account. After many years of steering clear of that path and preventing myself from walking down that path, I finally caved in.. And I have not been able to fight my way out of the endless pictures and gifs. After several days of neglecting my blog I feel dejected. I suck.
Now I just hope I'll be able to stay off Instagram.
Stationary presses all the right buttons within me. I've wanted Moleskin notebooks since forever, but they're pretty pricey, seeing as their authentic leather and all. I sort of cheated and bought their notebooks.. but not the leather ones. These are made of paper but they make me feel equally good. There were so many pretty colours to choose between; pastels, whites, etc. but I stuck with simple black and navy ones. It might be boring, but there's a smaller chance of me regretting the purchase. I deliberately chose the ones without lines, as I think it give some more creative freedom (probably some subconscious idea of mine, being confined by having to keep in the lines).
A storm named Bodil (and Svend in Sweden?) is slowly approaching, apparently as the result of wind pressure. It will hit in the afternoon. We were let of school a little earlier so we could get home safe and sound, but of course I have to go to work. I don't know what to expect, seen as I was in Japan the last time a storm of this scale happened in little sweet Denmark. I don't feel like dying just yet. And I would be really mad if the cause of death would be wayward Christmas decorations.
I just recently came home from and internship abroad- in Tokyo, Japan to be exact - and I have so much to update. I'll start somewhere small and write about the food and beverage assortment, which is everything else than small!
I found that most beverages are sickly sweet and this applies to the ice coffee too. I tried the Starbucks ones, and I just wasn't as impressed as I was with this. The Triplesso coffee had a rich and deep taste and although it was very sweet, it was super delicious. I miss it already. Take me back, someone!
I had to get it. I mean, it's one of the most hyped primers: Benefit's Porefessional (got to love that name). A primer for me has to smooth out the overall texture of my skin, make my other make up glide on effortless and make it stay put for just a little longer than it would've without it. I'm not totally convinced that this primer in question manages all of that, but I dare say that it has grown on me.
The packaging is fun as most Benefit packaging is. Their colorful designs lack of a "sophisticated air" but it's actually something that I appreciate rather than frown upon, because it makes it so much easier to spot in a drawer full of make up. A sad truth, but a truth nonetheless. The packaging makes for fool proof use, as it's in a tube form, which makes it possible to squeeze out all of the product so not a single drop is wasted.
The smell and texture of it is nice- I could imagine some people being sensitive towards the fruity smell, but I so happen to like it. It glides on smoothly, but I kind of have a hard time figuring out how much I've already applied where.
I'll be honest and say that it doesn't really match up to my primer from Lancôme (La Base Pro), but that's probably due my skin condition rather than the formulation of the product. E.g. I find that the Porefessional does little for dry patches and bumpy skin, but is decent at oil control and making my make up last.
It's a nice product overall and I definitely plan on using it up, but if you asked me whether or not I'd repurchase it, I would most likely reply with a shaky "no".
I had totally forgotten just how uncomfortable stud earrings were before I wore these. Okay, so my problem was mainly due to my headphones and them pushing the small metal pieces into both sides of my head, but alas; one should have to choose between decent sound and looking fabulous. Just my point of view. This is jewelry that I haven't had before, and by that I'm referring to the shape and the cool mint colour. I thought it was too adorable to pass up on.
.. And yes this post was mainly about how pretty the saleslady had wrapped up the studs. I'm a sucker for packaging and presentation. Shoot me.
I was out and about with my siblings and a family friend when we happened to end up in the middle of some fashion week partying. It's still kind of baffling to me how Copenhagen is considered a fashion capital amongst others like New York, Milan, Paris and London. It's just little Denmark! Anyhow, we got to enjoy some free drinks made by some cute bartenders and a nice outing in the center of our oh so charming city. I like it here.
Creamy. Pigmented. Nice hold. Handy packaging. Great shade. Those are a few words to describe this eyebrow pencil from Benefit cosmetics. It's dreamy!
I'm not sure I know why I use this, I don't really need it- at least I don't think. My eyebrows are full and dark; as a matter of fact they look eerily much like snails placed on my forehead. I'm not entirely sure when I started to fill in my brows, but I like it. I'm a bit too lazy to use it everyday, but there must be some plus sides of having snails on my face. I don't apply a lot of product when I manage to pull myself together and make an effort. A little goes a long way, and I only really need a shadow. But I use it too because it's fun to draw on one's face.
The colour I have the darkest (brown), which I believe will flatter people of Asian ethnicity, just because it looks so natural with black hair. Considering my natural eyebrows are jet-black, the pencil gives my brows a more soft and thus a more kind/ or sweet look.
The box it comes in is adorable, as with all Benefit make up. The design of the pencil is superb too, with a spoolie- a perfect tool to blend the product with the hairs. It stays put after application, which is effortless. The price is $$$, but not crazy pricey like Chanel, or Dior, or some other stupidly overpriced luxurious goodie. I'm impressed.
