A few weeks ago I was in need of some sort of change and decided to cut off my hair. 
On quite an impulse of course, after all it's me that we're talking about. It sure takes some getting used to, 
but I'm getting there and it has definitely forced me to step up my styling game (from like zero to something). 

In this video I share everything about my hair care routine and show off my new length with some sassy hair flips. Enjoy!

Products mentioned in the video:
H&M Sea Mist Salt Water Spray, H&M Defining Fiber Wax



Remember when I told you that I had an upcoming tutorial featuring one of my favourite eyeshadows MAC Uninterrupted? 
Nah, me neither - hence why it took me so long to put it on the webs. I came across the footage 
yesterday and decided to quickly edit it into a short, intense tutorial. Hope you'll like it!



BEAR WITH ME GUYS! As you can see I'm in the glamorous process of moving. 
But FINALLY on Sunday we're off to our new, bigger, better apartment in Malmö which is almost an hour closer to school. 
Currently it takes me about 2 h to get there and it's exhausting since we have to be there between 9-16. 

But I'm here to let you know that it's killing me not to be able to blog or do videos and I can't wait to get back on track. 
This break has given me so much inspiration and motivation to create even better content. 
I read all your comments and appreciate when you give me tips and hints about what you want to see more of! 

I will get back into the hang of this ASAP, and until then you can get your daily dose of me on other social medias such as:

Also, I'm planning on doing a Q&A soon so leave lots of questions in the comments and I will answer them in an upcoming video!




It looks like ordinary water but it removes makeup like a bitch. I soak a cotton pad in this solution and hold it
over my eyes to dissolve mascara, eyeshadow, eyebrows and then swipe away to remove everything.
I wouldn't call this a miracle worker, but it sure does a really good job at removing makeup.
Would repurchase

A chemical exfoliant in the form of a quite thick cream. You apply this to your face and in a few
seconds you start to feel a tingling sensation in your skin, which is sort of a sign that it's doing its thing.
This leaves my skin feeling very soft and smooth, and the appearance is more radiant. I do however think this is quite a hustle to use and remove. To me it's weird to apply a thick, sticky cream to my face, stress about it for a minute, and then quickly rinse it off before it like ... burns off your face. I think I would prefer a chemical exfoliater in a liquid form so that it could be used as a toner.
Wouldn't repurchase

3. Lush Eau Roma Water
A very mild, calming toner whick is right up my alley. The spritzer on this also distributes just the right amout of fine mist
to my face. Not only do I love to use this first thing in the morning to wake me up, I like it during
makeup application, after and throughout the day if I need something to refresh my skin with.
Have already repurchased (the largest bottle!)

4. Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm
My all time favourite lip balm so far. Same thing goes for my boyfriend, and to be fair - he used up most of this product
since he have super dry lips. I'm always complaining about how dry my lips are, but then never really bother to apply lip balms,
so I guess I'm OK anyways... But he loved this and wants to buy a new one!
Would repurchase

5. Lush Cosmetic Lad Face Moisturiser
If you've read my blog for some time now, you would know that I LOVE this and went back to the store to repurchase this.
Unfortunately they didn't have it in stock so I went for another one, that I don't like... Sad times! But as soon as I run out of
that one I will run back in the store and stock up on Cosmetic Lad, cause this just ticks all the boxes for me when it comes to moisturiser.
If you have dry/normal skin and doesn't really feel as if moisturiser does anything for you - try this!
Would repurchase

6. Lush Angels On Bare Skin Fresh Cleanser
Usually I don't like physical exfoliaters, but this is like grounded almonds and lavender that just buffs your skin into heavenly radiance and softness. It's not too harsh, so unless you have super sensitive skin you would be fine with using it every day - I did. There's so much to love about this product so I suggest that you run to your nearest Lush store and ask for a sample or buy a big jar.
Would repurchase

7. Make Up Store Face Mist
If you're a frequent reader of my blog you probably know that I'm a sucker for Face Mists in general, and this one is no exception.
It has a veeeery fine mist, almost not noticeable, which is very good if you want to set you makeup without making a mess.
Although, this to me feels more like a makeup-powder-setting-spray than a refreshing, hydrating toner, since the scent is more floral and
not so calming. My fave is still Lush Eau Roma Water, which also is more affordable soooo....
Wouldn't repurchase


1. e.l.f. Baked Blush "Passion Pink"
This is a blush that I actually like, and that says a lot, since I don't really like blush in the first place. It's a very natural pink with
a hint of sheen to make the cheeks look pretty and naturally flushed. With that being said - the packaging is horrible and
breaks by just looking at it. It's an affordable product for sure, but I just can't stand the packaging of these.
Wouldn't repurchase

2. MAC Blush "Harmony"
YAAAAS. A blush again, you might think, but this is actually what I've been using as bronzer for the last year and a half.
The quality of the powder is really nice and easy to blend, and the colour is a reddened, cool toned mid-brown.
Perfect for me, and I think it would suit a lot of skintones. I guess the empty pan speaks for itself - I loved this to bits.
Would repurchase

3. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
Oh well, what is there to be said that I haven't said before. This mascara does everything I want my mascara to do.
It gives me long, separated lashes with volume, AND it's quick & easy to apply.
Would repurchase


1. Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub
I talked about this in my first favourites video, and I told you guys that I loved it, and that it made my skin really smooth.
Well, that was before a few weeks had passed and the whole jar turned into a blue water without any exfoliating bits?!?! WHY?
Has this happened to any of you? I got really disappointed and had to use up most of it as a super liquidy shower gel (water).
Wouldn't repurchase

2. Dior Diorissimo Eau de Toilette
A few years back, this was on the top of my Christmas Wishlist. I was OBSESSED with anything lily of the valley scented and
this is straight up lily of the valley in a bottle. I have to say that I've moved on since then, and I got quite tired of the scent,
but if your craving to smell like a lily of the valley 24/7 I would highly recommend that you spend your dollar on this.
Wouldn't repurchase

3. Dove Summer Glow Medium to Dark Skin
Let's end this long ass review post on a good note. This is my favourite self tanner of all time. You apply it just like a moisuriser
all over your body, quick and easy & just make sure to wash your hands - NO FUZZ. It doesn't have a colour gard so you'll have to
wait a couple of hours for it to develop, but once it does, it has a really nice colour! You can easily build this up over a couple of days
if you want a more intense tan, and then just wash it off gradually in the shower or with an exfoliating mit.
This is a product that I like to buy in bulk, whenever there's an offer, so I already have triple backups of this in my bathroom.
Would repurchase
