Too troubled...


"一樣的化妝一樣的頭髮
大家通通太像多無聊啊
剪雜誌不如自己想學誰不如自己闖
每個人總會有一件事要比別人強
沒有那麼漂亮就更用心化妝
當身材沒有辦法想努力微笑放光芒
我煩惱太被動並不好
煩惱太衝動也不好
煩惱自信在動搖
煩惱煩惱鑽進了牛角
我煩惱太聰明並不好
煩惱太愚蠢更不好
煩惱誰都不明了
煩惱煩惱太煩惱的苦惱
別讓昨天變圍牆要拿今天當翅膀
可以失戀不能失去了對幸福的渴望
暗戀最好撐把傘小雨大雪都會下
愛就像高跟鞋越美的越容易拐一下
難免受傷重要的是不要留下疤
沒有陰影才不害怕為了夢想痛著成長
煩惱太被動並不好
煩惱太聰明並不好"

I'm stressing for so many reasons, lately. Sorry tho. I'll post the entry about the movie later

Hällt er wirklich was er mir verspricht?



I know that this may seem a bit odd to you, but I actually used to LOVE Tokio Hotel. I still love their original songs like Durch den Monsun, Rette Mich, Beichte, Der Letzte Tag, Wenn Nichts Mehr Geht etc. I loved the purity, simplicity and the innocence in the songs. They made these songs cause they wanted to. Honestly I believe that they were victims of the big bad Hollywood tendency; making music to gain popularity and please the crowds AND the producers and labels. When I look at photos of Bill from back then - and look at him now, I see a huge difference. Not only in his eyes, but in his appearance in general. He's much slimmer now and he looks so sad and worn out. He's not the energetic kid who ran around on stage acting all out cause he could. He's tied on hands and feet by his label and manager. It sucks, but I still love to look back on what they used to be. Power to the old, German Tokio Hotel songs \(^3^)/

FOTD

I really do a LOT of FOTDs lately huh? I'll have a FOTN up in a bit.. I went to the movies last night to watch Knight & Day.. I shall review that movie for you too, btw : D

I'm sorry that the last entry bored the shit out of most of you.. or well, I assume no one read it, as there's been no comments on it. So yeah.. I'll try'n keep it short. I guess my narrow iframe makes it seem a lot more heavy than the entry actually is. I don't know..

Here's my face.


Products used:
Revlon ColorStay Active in 'Nude'
elf studio Complexion Perfection
GOSH 'Aloha' quad (I used the pink and blue color)
Barry M Dazzle Dust (Limited Edition) in '923'
NYX Blush in 'Peach'
Loréal Bronzer in 'Thriving' (PLEASE someone suggest me a good bronzer!)
Rimmel Stay Matte in 'Champagne'
NYX slim eye pencil in 'Black'
Mentholatum lipbalm
Barry M lipstick in '101'

So yeah, that's it. Feel free to suggest me a good bronzer, face powder and mascara - I don't feel right using the animal-testing brands >_<"

Stealing minors, highlights - and a haul!

Oh my my.. Hello guys!
Lookie, look! It's time for an update on my boring-ass life - and a little haul. YAY!

I went shopping today.. Just to chill a bit in Aalborg, walking down the street.. But I went to Matas (a Danish drug store - comparable to CVS without the medication..) I was standing by the GOSH-thingie looking at stuff, when 3-4 girls came up next to me and started looking at makeup at the stand next to me. They were talking regularly like: ''Oh, is this good?'' - ''Sure, I have it! It's great'' bla bla.. Then, one of the girls grabbed one of those HUGE pressed powder pans from GOSH and stuffed it under her hoodie. I just stood there, as the honest citizen that I am, thinking "Bend over, young lady, and Imma smack yo' ass!! *frowny face*" Srsly.. First of all; if you cannot afford make up - don't even bother going into a store.. Second, if you have the nerve to freaking STEAL, WHY would you do it in front of a girl, who's standing there with a Kathy Van Zeeland bag (which is a pretty expensive purse brand)? DOOOH? Did she seriously expect that I wouldn't snitch her out? So of course... When I had to go pay for my items, I snitched them bitches out! HELL, how dare they to go steal in one of my favorite stores?!! And so OBVIOUSLY in front of me? Jesus on freaking stilts.. Youngsters these days.. -__-"

Anyway, back to the whole haul thing - I just felt like sharing that. Even just talking about it makes me so freaking mad. Stealing is pathetic - that's it.


Anyway, I actually only got two things at Matas - one of the new GOSH nail polishes in '594 Miss Grey' (which is apparently a new 'fashionably popular' shade) and the raaaaved Soft'n Shine Lip Balm. I got the lip balm in shade '39 Sweetheart'.


The balms give a slight tint to the lips, and the one I got is very glittery - which I kinda like.. cause I'm apparently girly. I was not sure whether to get this one or the one called 'Scarlet' - but I got this one. I reckon it will look nice on top of my Barry M lipstick in '113'. Anyway, the scent of these balms is AMAZING. Simply AMAZING. Ohh my 'gosh' (harr harr), they smell so GOOD. Exactly like vanilla. So yummy! So maybe they don't give a lot of color - or at least the one in Sweetheart doesn't - but it smells so freakin' good! I paid 90 DKK (approx. $17) The glitter, though, DOES go all over the place..


Now to the nail polish. I didn't actually notice these before, but apparently this is one of three new 'summer' colors. There was this grey color, a minty blue color and another color, that I kinda forgot. lol. The minty one was pretty though. I've been wanting a grey color ever since I saw China Glaze's Recycle, so yeah.. I got this one. It was a smashing 70 DKK (approx. $13), so it better be good and last me long. The consistency is very liquidy at first, but it goes on easily and smoothly and it doesn't streak at all. The first coat looks kinda weird, but after a second coat, you're good to go. You can just about see a bit of the fingernail lines under it, but it's not much. (and yes, I used the word 'fingernail lines' because I cannot remember the actual word for it..)

After Matas I went to the Body Shop, where I (by the way) signed up for their Love Your Body membership-thingie. This costs 95 DKK (approx. $18) for a whole year, and you actually get these money back on your birthday - because you get to choose an item from the store in the month of your birthday for 95 DKK. NICE, yeh? Also the membership gives you a lot of goodies; free products and samples now and then, 10% off all purchases (INCLUDING sales items!!) and lots of stuff that I forgot. lol. But I reckon it's totally worth the 18 bucks, so yay for that!


Anyway, as you probably all know, I've been all desperate to get my hands on the Philosophy Purity cleanser - but as everything else of decent quality, it's not available in my country. So I ''settled'' with a cleanser and a toner from the Body Shop. I'd originally picked out their Vitamin E cleanser, because Vitamin E is great for sun exposed skin and this one said for ''All skin types'', but the lady at the counter told me to get the Aloe Vera cleanser and toner instead, as it's perfected for sensitive skin - which you can easily call mine. So I went with that, and I'm very excited to use it. It contains Aloe Vera, which we all know is GREAT for the skin, both for hydrating and preventing early aging, so I definitely like that. Also this is a very gentle cleanser, which my other one by Plaisir was too, but I hope this one actually CLEANSES. The Plaisir one sucked at cleansing, really. So I'm excited about this! I will keep you guys updated on these. Oh, and I also got a sample for a shampoo and conditioner from their Rainforest Brilliance series.. Interesting. They're pro saving the rainforest, but how is putting it in their products 'saving' it? Oh well..


Lastly, for makeup, I got the Gosh quad in '53 Aloha' and the Twin Eyeshadow in '01 Tes'. You can tell by the swatches that the quad is not very pigmented - at least not as pigmented as the twin stick. I like the colors very much tho, as they work fine as a gentle wash of coloring, instead of being super pigmented and all up in yo' face. I've been looking for a champagne-ish color for a long time, so the twin stick is definitely a yay! 


Okay, this entry is hella long, but I like making long descriptions for the items : / sorreeehh.. Anyway, lastly for my purchases I had a gift card for a video/music store called STEREO STUDIO, which was about $30, and I found the season of NCIS that I've been missing for the longest time for that exact price! YAY! They're usually $40 bucks for this season, but I guess I was lucky today. Wooo!


And now.. for the highlights. They look very vibrant and 'alive' in person, and they overall actually lightened the complexion of my hair. My hair looks way more healthy and living.. but sadly.. it doesn't show up well in photos. You can barely see the strains here and there, even though there're actually a shit load of strains EVERYWHERE that are bleached. My hair took the bleaching in easily, and it's been very easy to dye, actually. So that was definitely nice. Thanks to Line G. for sexy hair! Woo : D

Oh my goodness, okay. Sorry for this huge-ass entry. Ughh, but I just wanted to share. Bahaha, beautiful Blogger.com ; D I hope you enjoy this and please comment, and follow - oh and don't hesitate to give me some feedback on the products I bought: Have you tried them? What did you think of them? etc. etc.

LOVE Y'ALL

- and omg. It almost took me an HOUR to write this entry. Holy moly..

NYX Slim Pencils & FOTD

Hey lovelies..
It's time for a makeup update! YAAAY!

I ordered these pencils in the beginning of the month, and they arrived this morning. I've always been a HUGE fan of NYX's slim pencil liners, because they're smooth, blendable, vibrant and generally easy to work with. They don't smudge at all, and they will also last your pretty much throughout the day.


I got the colors 921 Baby Blue, 926 Electric Blue and 913 Saphire. The picture (even though it's taken with a flash) gives a perfect idea of the color payoff. The pencils are vibrant and super soft and smooth. The color swatches are shown in the same order as mentioned just above. As you can probably tell, the Electric Blue does NOT have that slight shimmer-look to it, which kinda bummed me out. I rather wanted it to have that pearly effect, but it still looks alright on the lid. Also they don't smear, but after playing with makeup all afternoon, my hands are totally messed up with glitter and eyeliner - not from these three tho. xD


With a little help from my 120 Manly Palette, I came up with a quick look. What do you guys think? I wanted to make that exaggerated black liner, and support it with a bright blue - so obviously I picked the Electric Blue color. I wanted to try out my new foundation as well, but I made the mistake of putting on the elf Complexion Perfection studio powder, so it made my overall face look kinda pale - just ignore that.


My new foundation is the Revlon ColorStay Active foundation in the shade '04 Nude'. This compliments my skin perfectly - which is kinda weird, cause I've been using the Revlon Colorstay foundation in Natural Tan. I guess my tan is fading already? *sad face* I don't know.. but either way it blends in really well. It doesn't cover up as well as the original ColorStay, and you can still see some of my red blemishes around the nose and on top of my cheeks. Oh my, this all reminds me that I really need to get my hands on the Purity Cleanser by Philosophy.. or.. whatever the brand is called. *sigh*

I still haven't gotten a job.. which is really sad, and therefore I cannot spend money on makeup - I bought a lot of gifts for friends and for Tanja this month, as I'd hoped for a job mid August, but it doesn't seem like luck is coming my way this time around. I guess something better must be out there for me? I don't know.. Either way it's super annoying.

To top this off, I wanted to share this little fella with you:


His name is... SASUKE. You know.. Uchiha Sasuke? From Naruto series? Okay, I know that it's kinda dorky, but he belongs to miss Tanja and she loves Naruto (and sadly, so do I.. -__-") He's a Siberian dwarf hamster - just like Mr. Lee was - and he's definitely a he. I bought him for Tanja from this actual breeder of hamsters. O_ô Anyway. Here he is! : D Cute huh? He's quite messy.. He digs around his cage all the time and is mostly kinda cranky >_> nothing like Mr. Lee, for sure. But he's still cute.

I hope you're all well : D
TTYL!

new layout?

Hey guys!

Oh mighty my, what is THIS? A new LAYOUT?
Woosh, yes it is. I felt pretty inspired since everyone kept changing up their layouts and I was earlier told that mine was booooooring as hell, so yeah.. Here you have it : D A new, super girly layout.. and to try out something different, the header is featuring... myself. LOL. I seriously hope that this won't scare you guys off.. I just felt like trying something completely new. Usually I don't feature myself on layouts, but since this is MY blog, about ME and just ME, MY life and MY makeup - it might as well feature me on it ; D lol. What do you guys think?

quick update!

Hi guys, sorry for the lack of updates. I'm currently guarding my phone 24/7 desperately awaiting that ONE phone call that could give me a job.. or just a potential interview for one. I'm really upset about it.. I rarely let things get to me like this, but I'm really worried that I won't get anywhere.. My mom said that if I didn't get enough money by next year, so that I couldn't pay for my apartment, she and dad would help me out. How lucky am I? And it's not that I'm not thankful and super grateful (because I really am!), but I don't wanna live off of my parents resources for the rest of my life. I want a job more than anything right now - I'm so desperate that it's pathetic. I didn't think getting a job would be such a pain, but it really is. I guess, I underestimated the economical situation in today's Denmark. *sigh* I handed out more than 30 applications thursday and monday combined - and I haven't heard a single thing. I was told to give it at least a week, and it's been a week. PLEASE ALDI! CALL ME BACK! ó__Ò''

Ughh, I'm sorry for being so pathetic. Bssh, this is a beauty blog. SORRY GUYS - I'm just a desperate old lady.. -sob-


I'm srsly LOVING the Beauty Encyclopedia these days! Especially the taupe-ish color. Ahhh it's LOVE!

Anyway.. I'm out. Please don't judge my lame-ass personality from this super pathetic entry.. I just really needed to load off and get it out of my system. I guess, I'll call the ALDI store tomorow.. Just to hear what's going on with my application, as I was told that they were currently hiring and that my timing was perfect.. -__-" oh jeez. Job tips anyone? Moral support? Anything?
