Chatty post // Niceclubdk

Hi girl! From today and a week forth I have what we call ‘ Autumn Holiday’ here in Denmark – so lovely to have some time of from school and spent some time with friends and family. Right at this minute I  am sat at my dads where I am going to be home alone, so think I am going to have a girly night in with a face mask, hair mask and new nail varnish. Ah the feels I have for those nights! Oh and maybe some online shopping peeking!


Do let me know if you want to see a little post from my girly-night-in! <3


I don’t know about you but I am one of those weak weak girls who get sucked in when a company have a membership-thingy where you can earn points. I have a billion cards, get a billion emails but in the end it is definitely worth it – I get to pick a product/present as an reward for shopping and treating myself too much! Bonus bonus bonus! 

My most loved membership is from Matas (UK Boots)! But at the moment I, unfortunately, don’t find their selection of goodies all that interesting so when I saw that Nicehair.dk made their own membership page, I immediately signed up and saw the selection of goodies. As this is the beginning of the their project their selection is small but fab and I’ll definitely opt for the GHD collection – Oh my, be mine! Now I just have to shop shop shop so I can get those darn points πŸ™‚

This was a little chatty post today, hope you liked it! If you want to sign up for niceclub.dk then click on this link here! Now I will go and have my girly-night-in .. and some blog catching up!

What are your favourite membership-thingy? And let me know you favourite way to spend a girly-night-in? 


Lots of love

Weight Loss Wednesday // Share The Love

Sources (weheartit): 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8

Hi you! How’s your week been? I have had some days of from school and from everything which has really helped my mood for the better. I have also done some Feng Shui and clearing out in my so called apartment. There is just something about clearing out and Feng Shui-ing! Ahh, love it! 

Enough with the ramble and on to today’s post. Today I wanted to do a little ‘Share the love’-post but with a fitness/weight loss twist. If there is one thing that helps me through and keeps me motivated it is weight loss stories, quotes and youtubers and blogs. So today I wanted to share my favourites at the moment. Some of them are not only weight loss/fitness themed but they still help me out. If I, by sharing these, help one of you – then I will be over the moon with happiness. 


The Lean Machines are not only easy on the eyes but they are also personal trainers. They have a wide variation of videos as they have their Midweek Motivation, How To’s, food videos, funny-vlogs etc. Video through video they always seem to get me to understand why, what and how – and if they can get me to understand it you should not have a problem understanding it either πŸ˜‰ They way they explain it, is spelled out so everyone is going to get it. 

Through The Lean Machines I found Leon’s girlfriend Carly Rowena. She is fit fit FIT. Carly helps the girlies out and she is damn good at it. She has a girly wit and talks to the camera like she is talking to you – her best friend. I love the way she talks about boobs and butts like it is nobody’s business! She is a fit girly-girl who want everyone to look good naked

The last youtubers I wanted to share with you is the girly duo – Tone It Up. I have followed these girls in what feels like ages. I love how they interact with the community on social media’s and I have both their meal plan and their Beach Babe 1 DVD with loads of workouts. They are bubbly, loving life and it rubs of on you πŸ™‚ 

For blogs I love Fitspoblog which is by a Danish girl written in English. Her blog has a lovely mix of beauty, fitness and food. For you Danish girls out there here is two lovely health blogs – Getfitinspirationdk and Fitsporationdk. The first one is written by a girl who is in the middle of a weight loss – I find it so interesting to follow her journey. 

These were just some of my fitness/health-loves if I was to share everyone in one post – this would turn into a damn looong post. I might do one more of these, maybe featuring some instagram loves too – I have LOADS of those πŸ™‚ 


Hope you liked this post and found it useful! Please let me know in the comments if you have some youtubers, blogs og instagram I should follow! Would LOVE to find more 



Thanks so much for reading!

Loads of love

Weight Loss Wednesday // You need to start somewhere

Howdy lovelies! This post is getting up a little late, but better late than never – right? πŸ™‚ As I wrote in my last post, I am beginning to change my lifestyle and hopefully loose some (read a lot) of weight. I really want to share it with you both to hold myself accountable but also because of the positive response I got from twitter when I asked if you would be interested! I actually just came home from a Thai-bo class, don’t know if I like it yet so I am pumped to write this post! πŸ™‚

This is the first post in this monthly – maybe every other week – post. This one is just an introduction so I’m not going to go into details, as I would like some suggestions on what you would like me to write about for these posts. I wasn’t thinking it would be Dear Diary-like, I was thinking more beauty related. It could be What’s In My Gym Bag, food I eat which also effect the skin, hair etc., tips and tricks, fave fitness youtube videos and posts like that. Some of the posts are going to be personal and Dear Diary-like with updates on how it this goes – hopefully it is going to go good and positive! But I really want to maintain a beauty related blogger πŸ™‚

Please do leave me some suggestions in the comments on what you would like to read about πŸ™‚ 

This was a sweet and short post but just wanted to get this series started, next WLW (Weight loss Wednesday) will be more informative, fun and hopefully weight lossyyy πŸ™‚

Now I will get back to #bbloggers chat on twitter – love it! Especially Wednesdays chat! 


Happy Wednesday and thanks so much for reading!

Lot of love

Willow and Clo // Blogger competition

Source
Hi babes! 
Happy Monday to you all. Today is a happy Monday for me but I usually hate Mondays – it’s just always one of those days where you want to stay in bed going trough youtube video after youtube video. Am I the only one who does that? 
I’m actually going to do something and not just lay in bed all day. I’m going out for pizza and a movie with one of my best childhood girl friends. We are going to see The Bling Ring – we are both so excited to see it! Have anyone else seen it? 

The post today is a little unusual but fun as I kinda of like lifestyle posts. We all have those Mondays, or just those days, where everything goes wrong. 
One of the only things, on those days, that can cheer me up a bit is music and chick-flicks. So today I wanted to share my little obsession with a new band that I’m totally in love with – Imagine Dragons and a bloggers competition.

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by Chloe Townsend from Willow & Clo who is a jewellery designer. She wanted to let me know that Willow & Clo are celebrating their new jewellery collection Sound Waves with a blogger competition. The new collection is inspired by music and the sound waves. Such beautiful and simple jewellery!

All you have to do is to create a mood board with your favourite pieces from the collection, where you include a message, word or saying. 

My mood board is inspired by Imagine Dragons, as I’m really in love with their music at the moment. 
They are known for Radioactive, which is really cool, and sounds so nice with the right speakers. But two of my faves are It’s Time and On Top Of The World. My message/quote was found in On Top Of The World. 

If you love somebody
Better tell them while they’re here ’cause
They just may run away from you

Which is something I, personally, have to remember and tell people that I love them, which I often forget. Aw, getting all sentimental here. 
I think the message and the music fits perfect in the Sound Waves collection, as the message is something a lot of people can relate to and the music because it has a beautiful different sound.

This was my little Mood Board – not a pro at this but thought it was fun.

If you want to participate here are the prizes and the rules:

The Prizes:
1. The winning Blogger will win their favourite piece from the β€œSound Waves” Collection.
2. Green Quarts Necklace from Puddle Collection (HERE)
3. Citrine Necklace from Puddle Collection (View it HERE!) 

To enter follow these simple instructions:
1. Create a Blog post Mood Board. Pick a minimum of three items from the β€œSound Waves” Collection to add to your mood board (you can find the collection on the Willow&Clo Website HERE!)
2. Get Creative and Include a message, word, or saying you would like to see as part of the Sound Wave Collection. Don’t forget to tell us why you choose it. IF we really love the winning tag line we will put it into production as an added bonus.
3. To enter your blog post into our competition: post your Sound Waves mood board onto your blog and email us your link/URL to willowandclopr@gmail.com To be in with a chance of winning.
4. Tweet, Like, and Share!  Spread the word! Use the Hashtags #WillowandCloSoundwaves and let us know via @WillowandClo
5. Any Blogger can enter and the competition is open worldwide
6. We are looking for thought, personality and creativity.
The competition will end on July 31st 2013.

TAG // Colours of the Rainbow with a twist

Hi lovely people!
I’ve been wanting to do the Colours of the Rainbow Tag for ages – ever since I saw the original one from TalkBeckyTalk! I don’t know why I haven’t done it yet, but now I feel like doing it! It’s a Friday night in for me tonight, I’m at my moms and have New Years Eve playing in the background and have decided to do the tag! But since I’m at my moms it’s going to be a What-I-Brought-To-My-Moms-edition – so with a little twist.

So basically I’ll be showing you guys my favourite products whether it’s beauty or fashion items that fits with the colours of the rainbow. 
RED 

So the first colour in the rainbow is red. I brought this cause it’s easy to apply and who doesn’t love a red lip? I love these lip tints and this colour is my fave. I usually wear this with a simple eye makeup – maybe with a winked eyeliner! The only thing about these is you can’t re-apply them to often otherwise it will crease – at least it does on me. But I love it anyways. 

ORANGE 

So in the orange category I had to show both of these. The first one is my body butter in mango from The Body Shop. I love the smell of this and the moisture it gives. My legs are very dry so this is just perfect for me. The second item is my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. I haven’t got a lot so say about this brush other that I LOOOVE IT. It’s perfect for buffing in the foundation. 

YELLOW 

This one is an orangy-yellow but I didn’t bring any other yellow things. This Vitamin C Energising Spray smells amazing of oranges. It’s an instant pick-me-up to refresh dull skin. I use this after I’ve cleansed my face morning and night. I also spray it on after I’ve applied my foundation and concealer. 

GREEN

In the green category I have the Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless mascara. I brought this as my only mascara as it works perfectly for an everyday look, it gives length and doesn’t clump. I did a review here.

BLUE

I wanted to have some fashion in this tag too. And I adore this blazer from Designers Remix, which is a Danish designer. I love to wear it with a plain T-shirt but also a button up shirt. It fits perfectly and I was lucky enough to find it at a collection-sample-sale. Wup wup! 

INDIGO

So as I said above I only brought one mascara but my mom had purchased this one for herself and she didn’t like it. Wupsy it’s mine now and I LOVE IT. It gives my lashes a lot of volume and hold the curl really well. It might be more of a night out mascara but I also love it for daytime πŸ˜‰ I wasn’t sure if this colour would fit in with indigo but – yeah. 

VIOLET

Purple, lilac and violet shades are my faves. And this nail varnish from Illamasqua has become one of my all time favourites. I love how it applies, the colour the speckles, the shimmer-glimmer and just the overall varnish. I purchased it a couple of weeks ago and did a post on my first ever Illasmqua haul. I don’t know with you guys but I ALWAYS bring way o many nail varnishes when I go for visits – wupsy. 

PINK

For pink I obviously had to show a blush. This one is a cream blush from Illamasqua. It give a perfect natural look for my cheeks and it’s very buildable. I love the finish a cream blush gives – a dewy natural look. This blush is also from the Illamasqua haul.
The other pink item are some beautiful earring which I bought at a market in China. Cheap and I wear them a lot. Just to pep up an outfit or hairstyle. 

MULTI COLOURED

I actually had a lot of options for multicoloured items. What can I say, I love colours! The first one I chose is a scarf from H&M which I bought a couple of months ago. So you can probably still get it. The colours does not show up as bright as they are in real life. It’s an extremely neon coloured scarf which can pep up a boring outfit. The second item is a dress from also from H&M which I brought last year. I just love it and it fits my body really well. I did an outfit of the day a couple of month ago wearing this dress if you want to see it on. 

This was my colours of the rainbow tag with a twist. 

I wanted to tag some bloggers to do it as well. What can I say, I’m a nosey person πŸ˜‰ The bloggers:

Hayley from Beauty Rambles
Charlie from Eat Play Shop Love
Hollie from Eating Lipstick
Ellie from Eillies Ramblings
Becky from Lipgloss and lashes
Molly from What Molly Love
Sophia from Sophia Meola 
Andrea from Rosy Chicc


If you do the tag please link it down in the comments – would love to see it!

Have a love day and thanks for reading 

Love Marie-Louise x
