Wishlist of the day

Beautysets - Hair wishlist of the day

Im not a product junkie but I do like to try new products every now and then, my little hair/product shelf is emptying up and I really want to get some new products soon =) Last week I tried the Aussie 3 minute miracle frizz remedy ( I had one little free example that I got a while back, you know those you get from the mall or magazines, oh I love getting those) Anyways, My hair was feeling blah(DRY) and I needed to do something, I starting to notes that my TRESemmĂ© split ends formula is not working too well... (I guess my hair got bored)  I usually do natural hair remedies but I remembered that I had the aussie example... So, now that I had that little preview of the Aussie's product I totally feel like I need to get them =) I think Im going to get my hands on that product line before I get my hands on the Macadamia and Morrocan oil line... I heard wonders about these two lines, but Im such a coward and maybe a little bit too careful when it comes to my hair products... I like doing research and checking up and if it wasnt for that free example that I got from Aussie I wouldn't even try it hehe =)... So girls what do you guys think about the Aussie products would you recommend them and have any of you try the Macadamian or the Morrocan oil line? Should I get them or not.... I think should get Aussie first right?

I follow you deep sea baby, I follow you...

Suit + Shoes: Nelly.se Shirt/blouse: Forever 21

  Oh, I love Likke Li's song I follow river.... I seriously never get tired of it... I can listen to it over and over... And for some reason these pictures totally reminded me of the video... and a little bit about the song.. specially those with my hair in my face... These phots were actually taken at my moms... so you know they are a little bit old.. but that's alright, yeah? And also Im totally "proud" that I got the pants to complete the suit... Nelly was having a sell and I had a 100 kr discount... so I was that I could finally get it... and bring the two pieces together... The best part is that I paid like a total of 60 kr for the whole suit, since the jacket was free heheh.... Anyways I love it... and I cannot wait to wear the pants with some jumpers or to work or so. =)

With your quotes in my head

Glasses: Firmoo, Blazer.Stradivarious, Shirt:Gina Tricot, Black Jeans:Whyred, Coat:H&M, Shoes:Nelly.se
Mini update: Here is a mini update on some of the questions I've been getting over the last couple of days and weeks. I've been getting questions about the giveaway, my pictures and also my job interview . I dont know where to start. So I just going start by saying that the winner from my CHICNOVA giveaway has already been picked and contacted in the beginning of this week. SO, Congrats Nicole for winning =)... Someone ask like almost a day after the giveaway when I was going to announced the winner. But since I was following chicnova's requirements I couldn't just announced it right away... but for those who are wondering the winner has already been contacted. Sorry if the answer didnt come right away ( and dont worry I will be hosting more giveaways very soon, so stay tuned)... Another thing that I wanted to address was some of the questions that I got after uploading a couple of my make up looks from the past when I was a blondie. People wonder if the pictures were taken professionally, the answer is no. Some of the pictures were taken with my old digital camera that has a make up feature that softens the picture but that's it and some were taken with my DSLR nikon... And again as many of you already know... One of the key things for taking pictures is lighting and for make up looks foundation and contouring is also a key factor for "good pictures" I dont consider my pictures to be of the best quality, so I really get flattered when someone points that out... I also gotten comments about the fact that I dont overdue my make up looks, which is positive... But I have decided to broaden my blog with more make up and beauty orientated posts every now and then... I hope you all enjoy that =) ....
Now job questions: After uploading my last post when I talk about my job interview, I  gave you some clues about what kind of job it was, but I didnt want to tell you what it was because I haven't been open about it in my regular life, outside the blog... and the reason why, is because I really want the job and I dont want to get my expectations too high by telling the world what it is and then getting a sad respond... Im looking for other jobs in the meantime so dont worry, something tells me that I will get it =) ... But anyways I thought I was going to tell everybody when I actually get the good news =)That sounds better and if you dont hear nothing at all its probably because I didn't get it..
I really dont know if you guys are going to read this but I believe and hope that some of you are...
So thats it for today =) Thank you for stopping by my darlings =)

We changed again, and yet again....


“We changed again, and yet again, and it was now too late and too far to go back, and I went on. And the mists had all solemnly risen now, and the world lay spread before me.”

Get the look: Model edition


Beautysets - Get the look

Blouse: Gina Tricot , Glasses: Firmoo

Hello there, its Monday again and I am coming out to you with a make up post, its feels so refreshing =). Anyways, I 've been drooling over that gorgeous model that is on my beautyset ever since I found her on Tumblr.... , I think her name is Marina Nery (correct me if Im wrong) ...But yeah, I 've been dying to steal her make up look ever since then, I think its gorgeous... On so many levels. First, the make up is just flawless and then the glasses. Oh my, her glasses. I dont know if you guys have notice but I have a major obsession with retro glassess. So when I finally got these glasses from Firmoo.com  I knew I had to do this look, once and for all =)... For those who haven't heard about Firmoo yet, Firmoo is an online optical store that has a great variety of high-quality affordable fashionable eyewear (prescription and non prescription) . Another cool feature about Firmoo is that they have a great and smart program for first-time buyers, as a first time buyer they offer you a free pair of glasses for you to try and the only thing you need to do is pay shipping... Cool huh? I got my glasses pretty fast and Im really surprised over the quality and how they feel on me. To tell you the truth I though that they were going to feel like my other non-prescription glasses ( a little plasticky), but they dont... Im very pleased with this glasses. And totaly recommend it to you guys...So check them out!

So guys, what do you think about this look? Did I nailed it?

Leave your mark

I was going to give you a completely different post today, but I changed my mind at the last minute... I kinda wanted to pick up some of the stuff that I touched on my last post... I really enjoy reading your feedback and having a convo with you all... But I dont wanna be a party pooper! Its Friday and we should celebrate! This week was a good week. My job interview went good, well I feel happy with my answers, I left my mark and now the only thing I have to do is wait... I still cannot believe they asked me all the things that they asked me... One of my favorite questions of the whole interview was. What does feminism mean to you? I think that is a really good question... Any ways I dont wanna drag this post and make it too long... So now, Im going to do some grocery shopping, cuz we need some food in the house! hehe, its funny that Im leaving you with a "stereotypical statement", those who get this part will probably laugh a bout it. Those who dont, read and educate yourself!  S'il vous plait =)

Where do we go?

Don't I look like a school girl here? Well, When I was leaving in Costa Rica, I used to wear an uniform like this, The pleated skirt was exactly like the one Im wearing but the color was blue, and on top I wore a plain white blouse, and on chilly days I used to wear a sweater, just like this one  and I was happy... For some reason this look got me thinking about how some people take school for granted while there are many children specially girls who dont get the chance to go to school because they are girls. Or those who dont get the chance to go to school because they lack the financial part. It also got me thinking about those who dont wanna go to school because they are being bullied. I used to be bullied and sometimes I didnt want to go to school... But some days I just suck it up and went anyway and now here I am (but still not quite there...) Being discriminated against or when I hear that someone is being discriminated because of their gender, color or background makes me literally boil inside, I feel like my organs are screaming, my whole body screams inside, but at same time I feel completely paralyze, just like in the pictures... So the question is,  where do we go when someone tells you you are not allow to go to school because you are a girl? Where do we go when someone tells you, you are not welcome here because of you color, Where do we go when someone tells you, are never going to make it because of your background?  Do we go home and hide, or do we suck it up and try to work trough it with whatever we got, while we hope that someday things might change?But things might never chance unless we ALL do something about it.
