Why I disappeared??

why-i-disappeared-1

I am back!

I was MIA most of the summer and fall. Mostly because of work.

I lost my summer vacation to work…

But it was not all bad, because I am happy to announce that I am in the process of getting my YouTube channel up and running. This would not be possible, without the money I earned this summer (I did not have the proper lights for my mini “studio”).

So right now, I am participating in meetings about starting my own business, so I can build up my company.

At the same time I am going to school and filming my very first video. I am a busy bee.

And I have decided to be more visible! So from now on, there will be more pictures on Instagram and if I really get my s*** together, there will be more posts on twitter.

All of this means something  blog wise. I will not be writing as much as I did before the summer vacation. Mostly because YouTube will substitute the beauty blogs I wrote before.

Which I think is easier. Then I can show you the products instead. But I will try to write at least one blog per week. I hope.

I have an internship coming up as  part of my studies, so please forgive me, if I forget.

If you have any suggestions for makeup tutorials or questions, just ask.

But anyways, I am back in school, and able to write whenever inspiration hits me. Which is why my blog is back again.

My worst Tinder date story

06 14.06.16

Like everybody else, I have had some experiences with the famous app Tinder. Before my boyfriend of course. That’s why I can testament, that the dating scene is weird and confusing.

I had an especially hard time at the dating scene. Mostly because I am really bad at telling, if people are flirting with me.

So I had used Tinder for some time. I just moved in to my new apartment, and I was ready to put myself out there. I found this guy. He was sweet. So we went on a date.

I was pretty nervous. I had not been on a date for some time. We met at a park and walked for a while. We talked a lot about music and training. He did not make my heart melt. But it was a good beginning. So I invited him back to my place for coffee. We were both students, so neither of us had a lot of money. And in Denmark, there is no policy about the guy paying for the first date.

I fumbled with the coffee, and we sat down to talk more. At my dining table, in my studio. The conversation went smoothly and we laughed for a bit. I wanted to get the sugar, obviously I forgot it. When I got up, I succeeded in spilling the entire coffee all over my body. From my stomach to my knees.

My face turned tomato red. It is so typically me. I am clumsy. So of course I changed my clothes. Even though I spend time picking out the perfect casual outfit. I now had to change the whole thing. The poor bastard was so nice to me, and he tried to clean the floor after my coffee. But it was so obvious that he thought “I did not sign up for this.”

In the end I send him packing. And I never heard from him again. So the date went from nice to disaster.

Until next time.

About the love of my life

05 31.05.16

If the story about me and my love life was a movie, it must be ether the nightmare before Christmas or how to train your dragon. And that is some weird movies to compare your love story to.

But this is a weird love story.

Am I an opinionated woman. I do not want to stand behind a man. To see him succeed, and me staying home with the 1,8 kids, behind a white picket fence.

I wanted a man that understood that, and if I was lucky respected me for that dissension. It is not, that I do not want kids. I love kids. But I am not a housewife.

So when I met this wonderful man, at my school, I was sceptic. When I talked to him at first, he challenged me, with a crocked smile. I thought he was a player. Normally players like me, because I am a challenge.

But he turned out to be the sweetest man I had ever met, and I fall in love with him instantly. But I was not ready for him. I was enjoying my single life. And he ruined it in the most amazing way possible.

He has become my second half, not in the sense that I am lost without him. But because he makes everything better. Even when he is mad at me, tired after work or annoyed when I wake him up way too early in the morning.

The last couple of months he has supported me a great deal. With the start of my blog and my upcoming business. I could not have done it without his help. Even though I know he was sick of my questions in the end.

So my love, thank you for understanding me and my planner obsessions. The quirky way my brain works. Even when I was I doubt about myself. You still loved me.

I will always be yours.

Until next time.

Finding your confidence within

29.05.16

Like many other teenagers I have struggled with my self esteem and self worth.

I will never write a fairy tale story. It takes time and effort to learn how to love yourself.

I battled a lot with acne from the age of 11 to the age of 21. From the day I got it, or the day I noticed it. I refused to leave the house without makeup. My mother helped me, to hide the acne, she could see how it affected me.

At that time foundation was the only thing, I used. But it did not work. There was no green concealer (that hides redness). And foundation was not easy to find in my skin colour.

As a kid, tween and teenager image means a lot. Even when my skin was beginning to get better, it was still hard for me to go out without makeup on.

It took a long time, for my brain to realize that my acne was gone. Because I still had one or two pimples.

My dad has an expression he uses a lot. “Fake it until you make it.” Pretending to have the confidence you want to have and be the person you want to be. It sounds so silly (but it actually works). And it sounds easy. It is not.

Going outside, knowing that you think you look ugly. Your mind tells you that everybody is looking at you and thinking the same. But I just throw on some sunglasses and strutted down the street. After a while it becomes easier. Especially if your hair is on point and you do not look like a zombie.

But it is important to think highly of yourself. And a lot easier that not doing it.

Hope you will learn from my experiences.

Until next time.

My desk space

26.05.16

I have tried to organize my desk many times, until I realized, it was not for me.

My desk is a mess. But not in the traditional way. I have a lot of small storage units, where I dump most of my planner accessories. And for me, that is perfect organized mess.

Sometimes my desk does not look like a tsunami just came. And right now is one of those times. Because I am a human being. And I mess things up. All the time.

But I like it a bit messy. Sometimes it is messy because I could not find, the one damn thing, that I was looking for. And when you finally find it and you are done using it, the last thing on your mind is cleaning.

Sometimes the desk is part of my desk is part of my thinking process. And I do not know why, but my brain likes the creativity to be a bit messy (my boyfriend hates me for it).

Maybe that is why I always keep weird things at my desk. Of cause I have a large macaron to storage my favourite jewellery. And this week I have a small version of the Millennium Falcon (Star Wars Lego) and Han Solo (the young Han Solo) on my desk.

I love Lego, but especially Star Wars Lego. I have a few of the smaller Lego sets. But I really want the large Millennium Falcon. Even though it is a bit pricey.

That is what a desk is supposed to do. Of cause you need to make your homework at it. And your planning (if you are like me). But a desk needs to inspire you to do that.

And if having Star Wars Lego or something like a large macaron at your desk does the job. Who am I to tell you, that you are wrong?

Until next time.

So, maybe we have met. Maybe you have read my posts. I am as everyone else, a complicated person, who cannot be put in a box. But I am going to try. (Sarcasm)

Maybe not, but here are 10 random facts.

  1. I really love Disney!!! All Disney, all the time!! My favourite Disney movie is The nightmare before Christmas.
  2. I do not like roses. In Denmark we have something called farmers roses (directly translated), peonies in English, in purple they are my favourite.
  3. I am allergic to tomatoes, which makes coking a bit difficult. And a pain in the ass, when I love sundried tomatoes.
  4. I have over 50 bottles of nail polish and I sometimes I do nail art. But wright now my nails are damaged after I took of my gel nails, so I must wait. I do not like waiting.
  5. I really like sarcasm, and it is heavily used in Denmark. But I really do not understand 80 percent of it.
  6. When I am I bit bored, I usually play ether Pokémon on my Gameboy or Diablo III on my pc. I had to buy Pokémon again, and the Gameboy, because I was to foolish and sold my last one.
  7. I am looking for a new apartment with my weirdo boyfriend and my ninja cat. The one we have, is way too small.
  8. I am 160 cm (5,2) short. I do not mind being short, but finding pants in my length can be difficult. And I joke about my height, a lot.
  9. I am studying to become a pedagogue. I would love to work with school children, when I am done. In 2,5 years.
  10. If I could choose to be a villain or a superhero, I would not have a doubt in my mind. I would be an amazing villain. Poison Ivy style.

Hope you have enjoyed it. Until next time.
