I recently discovered that a Danish webshop sells Color Club polishes, which I’ve wanted to try for a while, but I was never prepared to pay the delivery costs for international shipping. And what was even better, was that they were having a sale! Of course, I jumped at the chance to try out a nice selection of polishes because you can never really evaluate a brand based on one or two polishes. I may have gone a little overboard, but Continue reading
Last month, I introduced you to the GOODIEBOX subscription service – a monthly beauty box that you get for 159 kr, but the value of the products will be 5-700 kr. As I said last month, this box is only avaliable in Denmark, but my readers from the rest of the world might enjoy my first impressions on the products. Continue reading
A couple of weeks ago, my mother and I went to Malmö, Sweden for the weekend. Little had we realized that it was midsommer-weekend. Now in Denmark, we have something along the lines of a midsommer celebration, Continue reading

I’ve been considering buying some stamping plates for a very long time. I sorta can’t help but think of stamping as ‘cutting corners’ at nail art instead of free-handing things (which I know is stupid), but I also think you can create some amazingly pretty things with stamping plates. Maybe these plates will change my mind and I’ll never want to do any free-handing again. Continue reading
Since christmas, I’ve been going a little crazy in the lipstick department. I got two for christmas, and then I had some gift cards to burn and some gifts to return.
I got four lipsticks: Continue reading
You know how you sometimes say to yourself that you’re not allowed to buy any more of something, and then you buy some anyway? That was the case with me this November. For different reasons, I ended up getting new nail polish – some because of the black friday-sale and some as a present. I got 11 new nail polishes in November – 3 as a gift and 8 I bought myself. One of the three is Essie’s Gel Setter Top Coat, which I haven’t tried yet, but am very excited to!
The names are in the captions – hold your mouse over the images to see it. If you want to see actual swatches or reviews of any of these polishes, let me know.
Since the end of the challenge, I’ve needed a break from blogging, and to be honest, that feeling hasn’t quite passed yet, so I’m not sure how often I will be posting over the next few weeks – that depends on how much I feel like it. I want to create good content for the blog, and that just doesn’t happen when it feels obligatory, so I hope you’ll bear with me, if sometimes my blogging schedule becomes a little sparse. I actually have a schedule planned out in my head, but since you don’t always know what life throws at you, I’m just going to keep it in my head so I won’t disappoint anyone if I stray from it.
After the shift in the weather I’ve been searching through my closet for warmer clothes, and as it turns out, I don’t have that much pretty AND warm clothes. Either it’s pretty, summer clothes or warm, comfortable clothes. I had my mom with me on a shopping trip looking for new, warm clothes that is a bit more mature and pretty than all of my comfy sweaters (which I still love, by the way).
I got a whole bunch of new nail art tools that I wanted to share with you guys!
Today, we had to go into the city to buy a present for my boyfriend’s father’s 60th birthday and we had no ideas as to what we were going to buy for him, so we had to take the full tour of the shopping street – meaning stumbling upon a few temptations, some of which we couldn’t walk by however hard we tried.
We got these two mason jars which we were going to use for spaghetti – turns out the tall one isn’t tall enough for the spaghetti, so we’ll have to decide if we don’t mind them sticking up a little or if we want to do something else with it. The smaller one is still going to hold pasta.
A new shop had opened, a tiny shop with what I like to call hippie-hardware – one-of-a-kind items that aren’t mass-produced – or with a look that is meant to fool you into thinking that. Nonetheless, these kind of shops have popped out everywhere lately, and I really like them. Anyways, this new one (where we also bought the mason jars) had these cute little plastic water bottles that we had to have.
Lastly, I couldn’t walk past the rack outside the book shop that had a 3 for 10 £ sale. I haven’t heard of any of the books, but they appear to be part of – or closely related to – the chick-lit genre, which is always a hit with me.
