Poems

The world was as blue as the sky

People were as bright as the rays of sunshine

Clouds stormed in a darkened the world

Not even the rays of sunshine could come through

Darkness filled the world

But as the night fell, the stars started shining and the clouds got thinner

The sky was too big and the stars too many

They could not be covered up

Though the sky was still dark, the stars lightened the night

The clouds surrendered since the stars could be seen everywhere

Because there were millions of them there

Hey everybody! (singing that 5sos song)

This week's review is about Benefit's Roller Lash mascara :)



This is acutally the mini-sized version of the Roller Lash mascara. I got it in a Glossybox a year ago, maybe? I had been dying to try it because I had read and heard good reviews about it. Since I don't have the normal size, I'm going to post a photo of it below so you can see how it looks. The packaging, I think, is meh. Not good nor bad. It's a mascara packaging. I don't have that much to say about it.

♥♥/5



This is the wand. It's made of plastic and has a slight curve to it. What I don't like about the wand is that a lot of product comes on it. If you look at the picture you can see how gooey the spikes are. It make the eyelashes clumpy... I'm usually all in for the clumpy style, but somehow it doesn't work with this mascara... Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of it on my lashes. The product is lengthening, and it gives you long lashes but since mine are quite thin I want volume as well. I've worn this alone a few times and everytime people think that I'm not wearing any mascara at all. If I'm going to wear mascara I want it to be visible. You're suppose to notice my lashes from miles away! Kind of disappointed in this one actually. But if you're looking for a lengthening mascara this one could be the one for you.

♥♥/5



Afterwards, I'm happy that I didn't buy the full size.


Until next time, x

Hey YOU!

Are you guys ready for the fourth, and last, part of the short-story? If I were you I would read the whole story again before I read this one... The suspense will build up much better than reading part for part. You'll find all parts under the cateory stories. Like I mentioned in the third part, this part will be really short, but I hope you'll get kind of an ending ...? You will understand me when you've read it. I will not keep it for you anymore so here's the final part of "The Road to Finding Myself" :)

A bunch of school kids walked past me and they were laughing and playingwith a football. They must have been fourteen or fifteen years old. Fourteen.That year is total darkness to me. I don’t remember anything from that time. Itwas like I lived in darkness the whole time, which isn’t that incorrect. Iincreased my pace. At the bottom of the street I could see that familiar yellowbuilding. I was only seven minutes late. The tall building approached me asusual with its dirty yellow walls with the big windows and the old brown door.

When I got up the stairs I stopped before the door. The gold label on thedoor was screaming at me, “Olga Andersen, psychiatrist.” Twice each week I hadto go here, and it pained me tremendously every time I had to go through thedoor. I had to take five deep breaths before I could even open the door andthen a further three to go inside. The first thing I saw when I walked throughthe door was the receptionist. It was always the same person sitting there, amiddle-aged woman working a crossword. She greeted me politely and then wentback to her crossword. Dr. Andersen’s room was on the second floor. I took mytime walking up the stairs even if I was late. It was quiet. Not the kind ofquiet I enjoyed, an unpleasant silence. I felt a shiver down my spine. At thetop of the stairs I walked to the left and knocked on the second door.

“Dr. Andersen?”

I opened the door a little bit and I could see a silhouette sitting in herchair so I opened the door and walked in. I was careful with closing the doorproper behind me. When I turned around my heart stopped. I couldn’t breathe. Itried backing out of the room but my back was against the door.

“So, you thought you could hide from me?” His dark eyes was pinning meagainst the door. “You should’ve remembered from when we played hide and seek,that I always find you.”

It was him. He started to grin. I wanted to cry and run away but I couldn’tdo anything. My legs were frozen, so I couldn’t run. My throat was dry, so Icouldn’t scream. I tried to scream for help but the only thing that came out ofmy mouth was...

“Hi Dad.”

​Okay... This was it. What do you think about it? I would like your sincere opinion! I have gotten the question if other stories will be published in the near future, and I am afraid to say no it won't. If I don't get crazy inspiration for a story I will not start writing one in until a couple of months. It does also take an infinity to write a story as well. I'm such a perfectionist so I want it to be aboslute as good as I can make it before I share it... BUT I will post random texts and other things instead that I hope you will enjoy! 

Until next time, x

Reviews, Makeup

Hello everybody!

As you might have guessed from the title this is another makeup review. I really like to do these reviews since it gives me a chance to think why I like or don't like products and shine some new light on them. I have soooo many makeup-products that some gets forgotten. It is really easy to go down the same path when it comes to makeup, so hopefully you get inspired to buy new products after these posts :)

In today's episode of makeup review I'm going to review NYX butter gloss. Let's get to it...



This is the packaging. It's plastic and looks classic and clean. Simply, a nice design. I like that the color of the gloss is the roughly the same color as the packaging. The applicator is a regular foam one. It has a stopper, which I know many seeks after, after the ... ehm... Kylie Lip Kit incidents.... Unfortunately A LOT of product comes out even with the stopper...

♥♥♥♥♥/5



This is one of the colors I have. Forgetful as I am, I have lost the other gloss I own somewhere :( I think the shade of that one was Crème Brulee, a pink-ish nude shade. The shade on the pictures is Angel Food Cake. On NYX' website it is described as a true mauve, which I can sort of agree with. The color is very pink but in the natural range. AFC has so much pigment that it is beautiful on itself, and it's how I wear it, but I think it would look pretty over a lip pencil as well. CB doesn't have that much pigment so I think it is nicer to have a lip pencil under for more color. If your intrested by these but not in the colors I have, don't worry because there are 32 (!!!!!) other shades to choose from. The color range is amazing it has every color you ever want in a gloss.

The smell of it, I do not like at all. It smells like chemicals or crayons that you can paint your face with. A big minus for me because having something on your lips that doesn't taste or smell good is just painful...

♥♥♥♥/5


I can understand why it is called butter gloss because it feels like you literally put melted butter on your lips. I know, it doesn't sound that nice but trust me that you have to try it to feel the consistency of it yourself. It is a thick formula and it feels like it's hydrating your lips. I haven't noticed any change but that could be because I'm an addicted user of lip balm. It looks really glossy on the lips as well, super pretty! If I am being honest with you, I'm not that big of a lipgloss fan. Personally, I feel so dressed up when using a lipgloss in my everyday makeup, I prefer to use a lipstick but when I wear lipgloss I feel glam as f*ck so that's a plus I guess ;)

♥♥♥♥♥/5



To conclude, these lipglosses are amazing and I can't rave enough about them. Even if I'm not a lipgloss person, I'm using NYX butter gloss every time I use it. The price is perfect as well, 5 USD could it get better? So what are you waiting for?! Go buy it now! Or don't, do as you please ;) Have you tried NYX Butter Gloss or something else from NYX? 

Until next time, x

Hola!

Time for part three.... Since I share so small parts at a time, it can be a good idea to read the last paragraph to get a reminder on where the story ended and perhaps understand the new part better. You can find "The Road to Finding Myself" in the category stories :)

Time passed and I didn’t move. The wind had slowed down, and so had thewaves. I looked at my watch and saw it was quarter past three. I rose from myplace on the bench and started walking away from the beach. A couple metersahead stood a couple shouting at each other. I could see tears in the woman’seyes. When I got closer I could see a little girl standing behind them, afraidand crying too.

“You don’t have the right to yell at me for seeing someone else when it wasyou who took out the divorce!” The woman yelled at the man.

The ex-couple yelling at each other reminded me of my own parents. I wasvery young when they got divorced, perhaps two or three years old. I didn’tremember much from that time. When I thought about it, I got a glimpse of twoadults shouting at each other. Their faces were blurry so I don’t know if it isa memory or just something I have made up in my head. I continued walking, andtried not to look at the little girl as I passed them. Her long brown hair wasbraided. I touched my own braid and felt my heart aching.

When I got to the crossroad I turned right and walked down on the oldeststreet in the town. This is my favorite street. There are a lot of smallboutiques with all sorts of things, everything from clothes to soap. Thebuildings are painted in different colors, which makes the street evenquirkier. I passed the chocolate boutique and caught a whiff of that lovelychocolate smell. I couldn’t help myself, so I walked in.

“Good afternoon Miss.” The owner of the store said to me as I walked in.

“Hello.” I said and started go along the shelves and look at the differentshapes and flavors of chocolate.

Everything looks delicious. I could feel the owner watching me, and it mademe uncomfortable. When I looked back she quickly turned her head. After a fewtimes of it happening I got a bit stressed and took a chocolate bar and went tothe checkout to pay. The lady looked at me with arrogance. Her eyes scanned mefrom head to toe, and when she was done she made a face of pity. This look waswhat made me move away from my hometown. The first couple weeks back, this wasthe way everyone looked at me. First I didn't understand why, but after fiveweeks I had heard more gossip about what had happened to me than leaves on atree so I decided to move somewhere where I could start fresh, where no oneknew, or thought they knew, what I had been through. I remember my first dayback in school. Everyone was staring at me when I walked in the corridors,whispering and judged every step I took. It was not only the kids that judgedme, everywhere I went there were people staring and gossiping. When I decidedto leave, nobody questioned it. I think my mother understood my decision andeveryone else just didn't care. I shook my head trying to get back to thepresent.

The owner took a long time with the cash register and the longer it took,the more stressed I felt. I looked at my watch, 15.26. I started to fiddle withmy bracelet.

“There aren’t any bags here, let me just go to the back and get some.” Theowner said.

I looked around the shop. This time I looked closer than I did before. Icould see that the chocolate on the top shelf was dusty, and that somechocolate figures had cracks in them. How long does it take to get some bags? Ilooked at my watch again, 15.30. Now I’m going to be late. After a minute or sothe owner returned with a paper bag in her hand. She handed me the bag with thechocolate bar in it and I put it straight into my bag, said ‘thank you’ andwalked out.

​I just realized that the next part is the last part... Part four will also be veeeeeeeery short but it felt too long to include in part three, and also I like to drag it out a bit, increase the suspense... 

Until next time, x

Chatty TImes

Bonjour mes amis!

What are you doing right this second? Except from writing this, I'm stressing about 1 billion things... I am trying to focus enough so I can write this post. I always try to take one second at a tie whenever I'm feeling stressed. The stress you're feeling are not making the things you're stressing over go away any quicker so you might as well skip it. Today I just wanted to write... anything really. I warn you ahead that this might be a very chatty text. Half of the billion things I'm stressing about is related to my "little" trip I'm going on this Friday. Oh my god, I can't believe I'm going in two days (or kind of one because I'm leaving really early on Friday morning). I'm couldn't be more excited!! This trip has been planned since Mars last year. My family and I (yes, I'm going with my family) have saved up because it is quite an expensive trip... I am not going to tell you where I'm going, you just have to check in here in three weeks time to see where I went... Before my trip have a further half a billion things to do. When I come back from the trip it's only one week left until the school starts, and the first week back I have three assignments that are supposed to be sent in... and let me just say that I've barely started writing them... This stresses me a lot since they are a big part of my final grade. That leads me to one more thing I stress about. My final year of high school. 2017 is the year I graduate! For this, I'm also so excited but also scared because I don't know what I want to do with my life. It's a nerve wrecking feeling. I have always said I solve that problem when I have to cross that bridge, but now it's time to cross that bridge. Have any of you graduated? What did you do after your graduation?





Until next time, x

Helloooo!

How are you feeling? I'm feeling great because I'm about to share part 2 of my story! Can you believe that it has already been a week? Maybe not so many of you are into the story yet, and that's okay. The first part only hints a few things and I can admit that it isn't that exciting but hopefully the second part will change all your doubters minds! Hopefully there are some of you out there that wants to read the second part because you liked the first part. Okay let's stop rambling, story-time it is!

The next day was a Tuesday. I ate my breakfast early and left the apartmentaround eight o’clock. On my way to work I passed a hairdresser and a café. Thecafé is called the Light Café and they specializes in raw food. I had beenthere once and the food was okay, but the concept of it being cold did notinterest me at all. The supemarket where I worked was situated at the bottom ofthe street. I had recently started working as a cashier there and I reallyenjoyed it. It was a peaceful and ordinary environment, which are two qualitiesI cherish very much these days. I walked around to the back of the store wherethe staff entry was. Outside the door was one of the other cashiers, a woman,who was a few years older than me. She was leaning against the wall and smokinga cigarette. Before I passed her I took a deep breath, and held it until I wasinside. The smell of cigarette smoke causes flashbacks and still makes me sickto this day. In the back of the store, beside the storage room, there is adressing room for staff to change into their work clothes. The work clotheswere obligatory, black pants and a bright yellow shirt. Many of the staffmembers complained about the clothes, but I kind of liked them. They wereconsistent and they make everyone look the same. I got dressed quickly and as Iwas walking towards the checkouts I bumped into someone. It was the manager.

“Sorry.” I said quickly.

“It’s fine. You're the woman that started working here a couple of week ago,right?" The manager asked me.

"Yes."

"How is it going? Do you like it here? Or do I need to find me a newcashier?" He said jokingly and smiled.

"No, I like it here." I answered and looked at the floor.

"That's wonderful. By the way, one of the cashiers are down with theflu so I was wondering if you could work tomorrow as well? I know your contractonly says 15 hours per week because of your... ehm... you know... eh... Youhave already worked 10 hours, but I will be grateful if you could swing bytomorrow at four, working the evening shift." He looked embarassed.

My faced turned red, I felt embarassed too. I didn't want to say anything soI just nodded as an answer.

"Okay then. Have a nice day." He said, smiled and walked away.

I continued my way to one of the checkouts and sat down in the chair as Ilooked over the store. The only customers were an old lady and a mother withher child. I could hear the child screaming because his mom wouldn't buy him anice cream. There were only five more customers that day, some teenagers,families, and an old lady. Even though I hadn't much to do, I was busy in myown thoughts so the day went by rather quickly. When I got out of the store Iturned right instead of left which was the way back to my apartment. I startedwalking to the park which is situated in the center of the town.

There were a few dog-owners walking their dogs but other than that thestreets were empty and quiet. I like the silence. It makes you hear everythingaround you. The wind blowing, people walking and talking, the chirping of thebirds, and, if it is quiet enough, you could even hear your own heart beating.I could never live in a city full of noise, it would be rather disturbing forme. I stopped for a second, trying to hear my heartbeat. It only took a fewseconds before I heard the regular beats. When I was younger, I tried making myheartbeats different. Like a song. I would even hum along or sing some lyrics Ihad made up. Even though I like quiet surroundings now, it used to terrify me.Making different songs, was a way to break the silence.

When I got to the park I turned right again and crossed the street. When Iwas very young I lived in a big city, and I think I liked the noise and peoplestressing everywhere, but then he came. He changed my life. I was a livelylittle girl growing up and I played with and teased everyone. I never sat stilland I was definitely never quiet. It was a big change in the beginning. I wasonly allowed in a dark room without any windows or furniture, left alone withmy thoughts. After a while I got used to it. When I got back eight years later,nobody recognized who I had become. They wanted me to be like I was before, butI knew already at the time that I was never going to be what I once was.


And there you have it, part two! Next weekend it is time for part three which hints even more about the character's past....

Until next time, x

Poems


She came and she saw

She walked the streets as any other human


She thought and she believed

She wanted to learn like everyone else


She talked and she listened

She wanted everyone to be heard


She supported and she respected

She believed everyone was the same


She laughed and she cried

She saw the world was not as she had thought


She fought and she loved

She found no other way to live


She gave and she received

She tried to help the world


She received doubts and she received prejudices

She still kept going


Because she knew

They were the stars in the night sky called the world

Whereas she was the moon itself




Until next time, x

Reviews, Makeup

Hello everybody!

Today I'm back with a new review of a not so new makeup product. As you can read in the title I'm going to review the well-known, much talked about, beautiful Urban Decay's Naked Basics Palette! Let's get rolling, shall we?



For those who aren't familiar with this product, this is the packaging. Mine is kind of dirty and has gotten a few battlescars along the way but she wears them proudly. Yes, my palette is a she and her name is Judith...

I would be lying if I didn't say that this is one of the most beautiful palettes I have ever seen. It is an everyday palette and I literally use it eveyday for at least one thing. Now to the actual packaging. It's classy and the material is.... so hard to describe, I just realized. It's different from the Naked 1, and Naked 3 palettes. I don't remember what material the Naked 2 palette has. Either way I like it, the only con is that it collects a lot of dirt...

♥/5


The Naked Basics Palette is smaller than the other ones, with exceptions of the Naked Basics 2 palette. There are 6 shades in the nude color-range, and the shades are what you would like to put on your eye everyday if you're basic like me or just like neutrals, which I assume everyone does. As you can see some shades are a little bit more used than others, but that's just how life is sometimes. The shades in the palette is:

Venus : an off-white shimmery color. Perfect for that little extra sparkle in your inner-corners. This shadow I use everyday as my inner-corner highlight. Preferable over Benefits High Beam so the highlight lasts all day.

Foxy : a nude color with a yellow undertone. This one I use now and then for different purposes. I have used it as a banana-powder under the eyes (it works perfectly by the way), and sometimes alone as a base for my other shadows. I have a pink undertone in my skin so it looks a little weird by itself on the eyelids on me, but I think it would be perfect for those with a yellow undertone.

W.O.S. : does anyone know what these three letters stand for? This shadow is a lighter nude color with a pink undertone. It looks really pretty with a cut-crease but in my everyday makeup I usually mix Foxy and W.O.S. for a perfect color for my skintone. It looks like my eyelid but better, if you know what I mean...

Naked 2 : this color is my most used by far. I have hit pan and actually I feel really proud of it :') It's an ashy light brown shadow. I would not be fooled by the color in the pan because it comes out a bit darker. Naked 2 is such a versatile color. I use this shade in my crease by itself or as a transition color, in the past I used it as an eyebrow powder before I opted for a darker brow. If you are blonde this shadow is perfect for the eyebrows.

Faint : now we come to the colors I don't use as much. This true brown color with a cold undertone is an underestimated shadow in my collection. Everytime I swatch it, I get amazed by its' beauty but when it comes to putting on makeup this never crosses my mind. I have used Faint in some party-makeups in the past and maybe once or twice in my everyday makeup. It is pretty though.

Crave : a true matte black. I don't see black as an everyday/neutral color so this one I rarely use. Black eyeshdow is not something I use at all in my makeups. I feel like black is such a harse color that often are difficult to blend if you do a mistake, which I always do.

♥/5

From bottom to top: Venus, Foxy, W.O.S., Naked 2, Faint, and Crave

The last thing to review, the formula. Like everything else with this product, the formula is to DIE for. All shadows are smooth, easy to blend, and have sooooo much pigment. What else can you ask from an eyeshadow palette?

♥/5


After all this reviewing I can really only say one thing. If you don't have this palette in your possession you need to get it NOW. You will not regret it, that I promise you. If you're like; "No, I'm not going to buy this palette, because I have better eyeshadows already". WHICH INCREDIBLE EYESHADOWS DO YOU OWN THAT I NEED IN MY LIFE LIKE RIGHT NOW?! All jokes aside, how does your everyday-makeup routine look like? Do you use nudes or colors? or do you put on makeup at all? Tell me in the comments :)

Until next time, x

Hi everyone!

How is your summer so far? Where I live, the summer hasn't come yet... The weather is terrible, it's rainy and windy with occasional sun here and there. But just in a few weeks time I'm going to a warmer country and I couldn't be more excited!

For those who don't know I am a big fan of photographing. I love to watch others' photographys. Everybody has their own way of photograping, which I think is very interesting to watch. Through the years, I have myself tried photographing. I am no pro, for sure. I just like to walk around capturing the beauty around me. It doesn't need to be more complex than that. Yesterday, I felt inspired so I went on a walk in the area where I live. There is quite the nature where I live, which I am so thankful for, so of course there were many things to photograph. This time I choose to focus on flowers and plants. I thought I would share the photos I took with you guys because why not? I'm quite proud of these photos so why not share them for the whole world to see. Kidding, more like the two readers I have... Don't mistake me, I'm so grateful for you two! ♥ Here are the photos, enjoy!



If you like the photos, which one was your favorite?

Until next time, x
