February Goodiebox: The Big Five

February Goodiebox: The Big Five

Another (very) late Goodiebox post – I hate being so late with these posts, but I depend on the sun to take pictures, and it’s being a little coy bitch, hiding from me when I have the time to shoot the products 🙂 But anyways. February is the anniversary of Goodiebox – they have been in business for 5 years this month! I’m so happy for them. So in the box I got 5 full size products – and I’m…

MAC Haul – Eyeshadows Galore!

MAC Haul – Eyeshadows Galore!

When we were in the states last year, I bought a lot of makeup since it’s stupidly cheap there compared to here in Denmark. These MAC eyeshadows would have cost 50% more in Denmark than in USA so I was so eager to buy all the eyeshadows. But I had to settle on 15 single eyeshadows. MAC has been one of my favourite “popular” brands for a while, since it is one of the easiest ones to get here, and I…

January Goodiebox: Beauty Resolution

January Goodiebox: Beauty Resolution

January Goodiebox has arrived! This box is all about beauty resolutions – so a bunch of products to spoil ourselves and improve beauty habits. I feel like I already have pretty good beauty habits, but I love being spoiled, so I’m exited about this box. First up is a Balance Me Tinted Wonder Eye Cream, where I got 2 x 5ml – a full size product is 10ml and is sold for 215 DKK (~31 USD). When I swatched this I…

December Goodiebox: Happy Holidays

December Goodiebox: Happy Holidays

Another month passed, and I’m finally getting to do my December Goodiebox post. This month theme was “Happy Holidays” and was filled with products to “give a needed break from the Christmas hustle and bustle, but of course also prepare you for partying” (as it roughly says on the brochure in the box). So let’s dive into the products. First up is the full size Teeez Cosmetics Be Smooth Face Powder, which sells for 190 DKK (~27 USD) The packaging is kind of…

2016 wrap-up – things I learned, and goals for 2017

2016 wrap-up – things I learned, and goals for 2017

Happy new years! I hope you had a good night, with lots of laughs and other joyous things. The husband and I spent the evening at home, just the two of us, with some good wine and food. Apparently I drank too much, and was miserable the entire day after, which is why this post is only getting done now 🙂 Being a new year, I thought it would be nice to write down what I’ve learned this year, and…

November Goodiebox: Beauty Secrets

November Goodiebox: Beauty Secrets

Another month, another (really late) Goodiebox post! This months theme was beauty secrets, and contained some tools and multi functions products. Let’s dive in and see what I got. First up is a glass nail file. I’ve used a metal nail file for several years, so I’m pretty stoked to try this out. Personally I would have chosen another colour than pink (though they call it “peach” in the little brochure that came with the box), but it’s not like…

New Makeup Station Using IKEA’s Alex Drawer

New Makeup Station Using IKEA’s Alex Drawer

For the longest time – basically since we moved here 6 months ago – my makeup station has been the biggest mess. Everything laid out in the open on my table (which is so not easy to keep clean and tidy). I did have a few organizing things with drawers, but the space in front of them ended up getting cluttered, and then it would be too much of a hassle to open them. Also I ended up using the same products…

October Goodiebox: 5 Beauty Picks by Magasin

October Goodiebox: 5 Beauty Picks by Magasin

So I signed up for a beauty/makeup subscription box called Goodiebox, which is basically the only subscription box you can get here in Denmark. The subscription costs 159 kr per month (about $23 USD). This is the first “real” box I got. See, I signed up in the beginning of October, but still got the September box (which I found a bit weird, but oh well). Anyways, the October box is done in collaboration with Magasin, which is a Danish…

Tarte and Hourglass – Different sides of the spectrum for blush texture

Tarte and Hourglass – Different sides of the spectrum for blush texture

Hello there! Long time no see 🙂 . Here in Denmark we have a dull, cloudy day (what else is new) – but you know what’s not dull? Pretty packaging! And some of the most pretty packaging I have seen in a long time, comes from Hourglass. A sleek, reflective case with a beautiful product inside is what you can expect from them. Another bonus is that the case closes with a satisfying “pop” 🙂 I don’t think I have…

‘Murica: Corn dogs, amazing burgers, beautiful views, and much more.

‘Murica: Corn dogs, amazing burgers, beautiful views, and much more.

Our summer vacation this year was a 2½ week trip to the states – specifically San Francisco where my parents moved to last year. Kim had been there before, as a teenager, so he could recognize surprisingly much in the area (I was impressed – I can barely remember the vacations my family took me on as a child). We rented a car for a week, so we could take trip to South Lake Tahoe. I don’t think I have…
