Let there be light – christmas edition

I love to use everything that lights up as christmas decorations. It makes me so happy, and even when it is dark 16 hours a day, you can still bring some coziness into your life.

Wishlist 2016: Beauty Edition

The other day I told to you about my non-beauty related wishes. Today, I bring you my wishlist: the Beauty Edition.

beauty-wishlist-2016

  1. Diesel Loverdose Eau De Parfum. I got this a couple of years ago and I used it all up, so now I’d really like a new one.
  2. The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil. I need all the moisture I can get in these cold winter months.
  3. The Body Shop Warming Mineral Mask. This mask works wonders! Plus, it’s a really nice sensation that it heats up on your skin.
  4. OPI Nail Envy. My favorite base coat.
  5. Essie Gel Setter Top Coat. My favorite top coat.
  6. The Body Shop Almond Hand & Nail Oil. I’ve been using this for a couple of weeks, and I LOVE it! (maybe I should review this one day…)
  7. Essie Spa Starter Scrub. When you take macro shots of your hands as often as I do, it’s nice to have them looking nice.
  8. The Body Shop Smoky Eye Definer Eyeliner. I’ve tried many different black eyeliner pencils throughout the years, but I always keep coming back to this one.
  9. Zoya Pixie Dust. Literally any pixie dust polishes. I don’t have any yet, but I always keep close tabs on new collections because I think they look awesome and beautiful!

Those are my beauty related wishes! I guess it’s a little The Body Shop-heavy this year 😉

Do you have anything special you’d like this year?

Christmas Wrapping Paper

I love wrapping presents. Usually, I wrap all presents myself rather than having them do it in the stores because I feel like they’re more personal that way. As you can imagine, picking the right paper is crucial. This year, we went for a silver holographic theme for the wrapping paper. As for ribbon, I have a trusted collection of different types and colors, but that doesn’t stop me from buying more every year, apparantly 😉 A present isn’t complete without two different colors of ribbon. As something new this year, I’ve been wrapping presents with silk ribbon, which I usually don’t like, but for some reason, I really love the look this year.

Do you like to wrap your present yourself or do you have others do it for you?

Wishlist 2016

Today I am bringing you my wishlist for 2016. This is the non-beauty edition – I’ll follow up with the beauty edition at a later point. Since my birthday is 26th November, I always have to be pretty creative with my wishlist because I have to come up with A LOT of wishes. This list is what I’ve come up with this year minus all the things I got for my birthday.

wishlist-2016

  1. Jojo Moyes – Me Before You. Pre-movie edition cover. I wanna know what the fuss is about!
  2. Mads Stage Bird Mugs. My mom has these and they are the PERFECT size for a cup of coffee! Just enough to satisfy your need, but small enough so your beverage doesn’t get cold before you’re done drinking it.
  3. Cinema tickets. Usually, the movies I wanna see come out in bulks, and being on a tight budget, it’s nice to have a way of getting to see all the movies anyway.
  4. Hoptimist Mug in Purple. Ugh. This one. There are six different colors of these. I have five, and now they’re being discontinued, so hopefully someone will snatch it up for me before they’re gonna be impossible to find.
  5. Andy Weir – The Martian. I haven’t actually seen the movie, but I’ve read an excerpt of the book.
  6. Infinity candle holder. This is just gorgeous!
  7. Lauren Graham – Talking As Fast As I Can. OG Gilmore Girls fan here – of course I’m gonna want this!
  8. Tripod. We bought a camera for Black Friday, so naturally a tripod would be next. We already have a gorillapod, but we’d like an upgrade.
  9. Daniel Wellington Watch Classic Bristol. I just love Daniel Wellington watches! I have one with a black band and rose gold dial, but I’d really like the dark brown and gold one!
  10. Settlers of Catan Seafarers. We have the normal Settlers of Catan and enjoy it quite a lot.
  11. Alchemists. We’ve actually never played this, but we LOVE board games.
  12. Joel McHale – Thanks For The Money. I mostly know McHale from Community, but this book is very satirical and funny, so I’d like to read more of that.

    Those are my non-beauty related wishes! Do you have anything special you’d like this year?

Changing my URL

For quite some time now, I have considered changing the name of my blog. When I first started the blog I thought the name was quite clever actually, but ever since then I have slowly grown to resent it. I found that people had a hard time spelling it and that’s not what you want when writing a blog – you want people to be able to find you easily. That is why I have decided to change it.

All of my future post will be found at

http://www.bottledindenmark.wordpress.com

All of my previous content will still be on the site, and I hope to see you all there!

Liebster Award

I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award which is an honour!

I was nominated by Beauty, Brains and Food – thanks so much!

The award is a way for bloggers to help each other out a little.

The rules:

Thank and link the person who nominated you
Answer the questions given by the nominator
Nominate 10 other bloggers (who have less than 200 followers) and link them
Create 10 new questions for the nominees to answer
Notify all nominees via social media/blogs

The questions for me were:

1) What is your favourite beauty product and why?

For my followers (or people who have taken one glance at my blog) this will be no surprise – Nail polish! It gives me the opportunity to relax and be creative.

2) If you could be any place in the world where would you be?

Apart from where I am (which is a pretty awesome place) – England! Since my first vacation there about 9 years ago, I’ve been in love! I have a dream to live there for some time eventually.

3) Whats your favourite food and why?

That’s a tough one. Lasagna, tart – along those lines. Definitely something with meat 😀

4) Whats your favourite TV programme?

Ooh, don’t make me choose between my babies… Right now – Bones!

5) If you could have a superpower what would it be?

Super-vision so I could lose the glasses. Or mind reading. Or flying. Ugh, it’s so hard to choose!

6) What scares you the most?

Drowning! I can’t even watch movies like Titanic without being terrified.

7) Do you have a favourite film? If so what is it?

The Beatles – Help! It is sooo funny!

8) If your house was on fire what would be the first thing you would save?

Assuming that my boyfriend could get out on his own –

My glasses if I wasn’t wearing them. If I was then my phone or computer with all of my pictures.

9) What do you enjoy most about writing a blog?

Honestly, the approval of what I do. Yes, I’m that horrible! I’m an up-right likehunter! When I create something I’m proud of, it makes it 10 times better if other people like it as well..

10) Whats your favourite memory?

Hm.. I have fond memories of the experiences I have with my choir. I like thinking back to the first months after I met my boyfriend (cliché). And so many more!

20 Blog post ideas

Sometimes it can be difficult to come up with new ideas of what to write. I had that problem before I found a list of ideas, which helped me very much, so I’ve created my own list for you to see! Some of these I thought of myself and some of them I’ve seen elsewhere. The ideas I didn’t create myself I don’t really remember where I found, so I can’t give the proper credit, but some of the ideas are pretty mainstream and can be seen in many places. Here we go:

  1. A tutorial (beauty, DIY, etc.)
  2. Products you’ve both more than once
  3. Products you regret buying
  4. Top 10 nail polishes
  5. A beauty wish list (nail polish, makeup etc.)
  6. A shopping haul
  7. Your morning/evening routine
  8. What’s in your makeup bag?
  9. Empties (products that are so good you used the last drop)
  10. Review of a product you’ve recently tried
  11. Helpful beauty tips (how you shape your eyebrows, paint your nails, apply eyeliner etc.)
  12. Compare two products that are similar and choose your favorite (could be similar in colour but not price)
  13. A contest/giveaway
  14. A recipe of something you love to eat/make
  15. A tag-post for example like the one I did here
  16. A personal story
  17. A review of a book
  18. A review of a movie
  19. Write a post about you resolutions for the new year
  20. Give a shout out to some blogs you like to read!

2014 in review

2014 is coming to an end. This is my first year as a blogger, and I just want to thank all of you so much for reading my things! It means so much to me! In the course of just a few months I’ve gotten almost 1000 views, almost 600 visitors and 70 followers!

I wanted to share a list of my top posts:

  1. 20 Random questions – tag  –  I’m surprised so many of you want to read random stuff about me lol
  2. No. 2: And Your Bird Can Sing (Anthology version) – The Beatles – YAY, other Beatles fans out there!
  3. Sally Hansen – Rule of Plum swatch – I understand, it is SOOO pretty
  4. 31 Day Nail Polish Challenge: Day 6: Violet Nails – For some reason this was incredibly popular considering it is one of the simpler challenge days
  5. 31 day nail polish challenge: Day 14: Flowers – Thank you, Robin Moses for inspiring my manicure 😉

Here are some of the countries where I have the most readers:

  1. United States – No wonder I always wake up to a lot of views (because of the time difference)
  2. Denmark – Not so weird, maybe some of my real-life friends contributed?

Thank you all so much for visiting my blog in 2014! I hope to see and hear from you again in 2015!

Happy New Year!
