Song of the day no. 10 + blogger’s block

Today’s song is very fitting for me these days. I finished work a few days ago and now I am just super tired all the time and I really don’t feel like doing anything. The blog has suffered a little this past month because I’ve been working so much and I did not feel like spending what little spare-time I had on blogging.. Furthermore, I suffer from a little bit of blogger’s block – I haven’t been able to paint my nails much lately and now that I do have time, I don’t feel like having wet nail polish when I just want to cuddle up in my couch or bed, plus all of my nails are super short because they break at work. And then what should I write about? I’m also in on a spending-ban, so no new products to write about. Do you guys have any ideas as to what I should write about on days when I don’t feel like painting my nails? I really want to get into blogging regularly again (once I’ve slept for a few days straight and get my energy back up 😉 )

My own domain

After considering it for a long time, I decided to take the step and register my own domain. This means that my blog will from here on out be found at

http://www.bottledindemark.com

As of right now, if you click onto my old address, it will refer you to the new one, but I do not know how long that will last, so if you’re following me through the website itself, please note the change.

If you are currently following me via WordPress or Email, this will not effect you in any way – your subscription is still valid.

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Thank you for following me so far.

A day in the life #3

1. The semester has started now. It is really hard getting used to concentrating for so long again.

2. We spent 75 kr on fruit yesterday. It’s not the worst thing to spend on, but man it was a lot of money just on fruit! I would include a photo of it, but I already ate most of it…..

3. In relation to googling the Kardashians in post #2, I just watched this video from Buzzfeed just to see if I knew the facts. I knew about half and that frightens me a bit.

4. It’s really nice having a normal life again where weekends mean something and is not just like all the other days. I don’t like to admit it, but I’ve actually missed school..

5. I’ve bought the last nail polishes of this month! I wasn’t going to, but I’ve really wanted to try out Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel polishes and Matas had a 3 for 2 sale so I could get TWO colours, Mad Women and Combusteable. I’m very excited to try it as the reviewers online have very different experiences with them. Swatches and reviews will come later when I’ve had a chance to try them out.

6. I’m looking forward to when the new season of Paradise Hotel starts. It’s my secret sin, it is just so nice to unwind and not think about all of your duties and feel smart for an hour.

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!

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?

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!

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)

Would you rather – tag

Would you rather walk around all day with you skirt tucked in your underwear or be seen wearing a really see through dress?
Shirt tucked in. Ugh, the thought of people seeing my underwear unintentionally.

Would you rather go to a party and not realize until the end of the night that you have lipstick on your teeth or that your fake lashes are coming unglued?

Hm. Fake eyelashes unglued. It’s something you see quite often at the end of the night, and I smile a lot at parties, so it would be too noticeable.

Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?

Forget blush. Hot weather, cold weather, embarrassing moments, alcohol, whatever, and my cheeks are burning red.

Would you rather wear lipstick/lipliner combo or frosty blue eyeshadow?

The lips. I’m not too much into eyeshadow anymore actually..

Would you rather wear foundation that is two shades too light or go way overboard on bronzer?

Too light. If that’s even possible to buy 😀 My skin is quite fair already.

Would you rather drink an entire bottle of ketchup or run into the guy who broke your heart on a bad hair day when your skin is freaking out?

Uuuuh, tough one. Run in to the guy who broke my heart. He dumped when I looked my best, so I can’t really please him anyway, right?

Would you rather be able to date any celeb you wanted or wake up with perfect red carpet-worthy hair?

Had I been single I would have gone with the celeb, but I’m not, so I’ll have to choose the hair.

Would you rather your armpits smell musky or like delicious lasagna?

Lasagna. It would be weird, but delicious 😀

Would you rather give up your makeup or cell phone for one year?

My make-up. I’m not really a phone addict, but it’s nice to have. And you would just get used to the no-makeup-look.

Would you rather run into a cute guy you like with food all in your grill or no makeup at all?

No make-up. At least that shows intentionality.

20 random questions – tag

1.Thing you cannot leave the house without?

My iPod! How else would I entertain myself on the go?

2.Favorite brand of makeup?

Hm. I don’t really have an all-time favorite, but I really like L’Oréal’s mascaras and Body Shop’s eyeliner.

3.Favorite Flowers?

Which ever I’m lucky enough to get 😀

4.Favorite clothing stores?

H&M. Cheap, but pretty. And they have a big selection and something for every taste.

5.Favorite perfume?

Right now it’s Christina Aguilera – Red Sin.

6.Heels or flats?

I have an obsession with very high heels and I own too many pairs! But since my ex-boyfriend was only a couple of centimeters taller than me, he didn’t like it when I wore 10 cm heels, so I stopped. My boyfriend is 2.04 m, so I’ve been wanting to get into it again, but it has just been too long. My feet hurt after 10 seconds and I just end up in flats 😦

7.Do you make good grades?

Decent. I’m sort of an average-person (maybe a little above). I do pretty well overall, but I don’t have a subject where I excel.

8.Favorite colors?

Bordeaux. And Teal. It changes often, sometimes even day-to-day. But these two are always pretty!

9.Do you drink energy drinks?

No. They do anything for me, and frankly they just taste like nothing but sugar.
10.Do you drink juice?

Sometimes apple juice. Pineapple juice when on holiday because I have yet to find a good pineapple juice in Denmark. I only drink orange juice without pulp. And only if nothing else is available.

11.Do you like swimming?

I used to. When I was younger my parents couldn’t get me out of the water when on holiday. Now I’ve gotten afraid of sea weed, so only in the pool and only to cool off from the sun.

12.Do you eat fries with a fork?

No. Too hard.

13.Whats your favorite moisturizer?

The one I have in my cupboard. Which is probably the cheapest.

14.Do you want to get married later on in life?

YES! Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but marriage before kids (unless they are accidental).

15.Do you get mad easily?

hm.. no?.. not at al….. Okay, yes. My boyfriend takes all the hits. But often it quickly surpasses and I’m pretty good at apologizing later if the anger wasn’t justified.

16.Are you into ghost hunting?

I’m too scared. Yes, I watched all five seasons of Ghost Whisperer, and I’m still afraid of passing mirrors at night…

17.Any phobias?

Drowning. I haven’t watched Titanic and probably never will. Why I thought I could would ‘Life of Pi’ I’ll never know. “What, a movie about a boy stranded on a boat, how could that possibly be about water?”. I always look away when there’s something with people almost-drowning on TV. Once I was playing a game on PS3 and my boyfriend had to take over in a part about escaping water while I sat in the next room.

18.Do you bite your nails?

Nope.

19.Have you ever had a near death experience?

Some that have felt like it, but looking back I was never even close. Drama queen, much?

20.Do you drink coffee?

If I have to. But it don’t clap my hands in joy when someone asks if I want some coffee.
