NEW IN // BRUSHES FT. REAL TECHNIQUES & ECOTOOLS

I love makeup brushes – I just have a thing for them. So when I was looking for a new perfume, I found Fragrancedirect.co.uk which is a website with cheap perfumes but also cheap beauty stuff. I found these gorgeous brushes and some other stuff which I will show you in a later post. 


I La la la LOVE Real Technique brushes, I have a bunch and this is definitely not the last. I was in need of a big fluffy Powder Brush. This one is, like the other RT brushes, superb soft and feels nice on the skin. I so happy with this purchase and at only £9.99 it’s a bargain! 


While looking at brushes I also found this beauty of a brush set. It is the Eco Tools Fresh & Flawless Complexion Set. The set contains 5 brushes, in a travel friendly size. I was a bit surprised by the size but it’s perfect for when I go home in the weekends. The best thing about these brushes are that they a superb soft and they were only £10.99 for all 5 brushes! 

Do you love makeup brushes as much as me? Which brand is your favourite?

Lot of love

WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS #1

Hi you lovely ladies! How did you like my 10 Notes for 2015 post? I think it’s quite exciting and would love it if would link yours if you have a similar post. Now to today’s post. I love seeing what people got for Christmas so I thought that I would show you what I got. 

Here, we give and receive presents on Christmas Eve but my parents are divorced so my siblings and I celebrate Christmas Eve both on the 23. and 24. of December. On the 23. we were at my dads this year – so here are the presents I got from my sister & her boyfriend and from my dad. 

My sister knows that I love Rimmel London – a lot! So she got me 2 beauts from the brand. The first one is the Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paint in Rich Rosset, a gorgeous colour and product. I already own this product so I exchanged it to something else which I’ll be writing about later in the month. The Stay Blushed! Liquid Cheek Tint is a product which I’ve been eyeing up for such a long time, so I was very happy to get it in this beautiful coral colour – Sunkissed Cherry. Lastly, they also got me some face masks from Montagne Jennesse. 

Which beauty junkie doesn’t like to get vouchers for a beauty junkie’s fix  😉 Matas is a little bit like Boots and I’m so happy with this present! With the voucher I also got a great sized sample of the Clarins Super Restorative Night Wear which I’m excited to try.

#2 will be up later in the week. What did you get for Christmas? Please link your post! <3

Lots of love

NEW IN FASHION-WISE // CHELSEA BOOTS

I’m sick today – bwah! But this morning the doorbell rang – uh oh! What could it be? Yes, you’ve already seen the photos above AND the title. The postman aka Santa came with these beauts from Deichmann. My very first Chelsea Boots – with a twist. 

I saw them in the store before a coffee date and it was love a first sight. I tried them on and they had to be mine but the pair I tried was the one that everyone had tried on and you could see that they had been on display. So I ordered them the minute I came home – now they are mine!

What do you think? Are they pretty or are they pretty?

HAUL // MY FIRST BITS FROM MAKEUP REVOLUTION

I actually had an #lfbeautybox post planned but I wished and sat by the door this morning and it worked. My Makeup Revolution parcel arrived. I actually think that the postman got surprized by how quick I opened the door. haha. 

Last week, I convinced my sister to make an order with me on Makeup Rev’s siteOh little convincing needed.  I just thought that she needed more make up – but who doesn’t? I have been seeing lots of tweets, blogposts and instagram pictures and I really needed to try some bits so we made a small order last week just to try it out and the parcel already arrived. Yaaas, that was quick!

I won’t say much about the products other than: 
– Yes I needed a purple PURPLE lippy 
– Yes I need more blushes. && look at this beauty! 
– And no, I haven’t heard a lot about the eye primer but it sounded interesting

– Yes, yes & yes – I will be ordering from MR again. Their customer service is fab – especially their contact via twitter. 


Have you made an order from Makeup Rev? Have you tried any of these products? 

Lots of love

Haul // SKIN FOOD

Let’s just this post with; “I don’t know what happened?” I have kind of fallen for a new skin care brand – Skin Food! Love the name, love the packaging, love the brand. 

Since being here in Vietnam, I have shopped a bit ( Ahem .. a lot) and I have tried some new brands. Skin Food is one of those brands that I really really like so I needed to try out some more products – besides the Skin Food Black Bean Nose Pack (Reduce Black Heads) which you can find a review of here. This post is going to be a show-off *slash* mini reviews! Let’s get going:
The first product I picked up was the 50 % Shea Butter Body Emulsion. First of all; how nice is the packaging! Oh my. The product is basically just a body moituriser that contains shea butter. I like this moituriser – a lot – and I think I would like it even more, if I where at home and not in this heat! It has a thinner consistensy which I quite like but in this Vietnam heat, it’s like it’s melting off if I apply it when I’m not in the aircon. In aircon, it’s working fine for me, so I have a feeling that it will be great at home. Though I like it, I have found something better! Watch this space. 

Next is the Honey & Shea Butter Hand Cream – Yes, I have a thing for Shea butter products, okay? This is a lovely hand cream. Loved it at first, stilly really like it but it’s not fabules. I have a hard time finding hand creams as I’m quite picky. 

My favourite lip balm got lost somewhere in all of my travelling, so I had to get a new one. So whilst I was in the Skin Food store I upped for – oh wait for it….. The Shea Butter Lip Care Bar in Milk. Yup, more shea butter for me! This is actually a really lovely lip balm. Again I usually have a hard time finding new lip balms but this one is good. You can feel it working to moisten the lips, and I like that. The taste is nice and nutty. 

The last couple of items are: The Black Sugar Sheet Mask, it’s a sheet mask do I need to say more? I love sheet masks and this is nice. I also needed nail polish remover, so I went for the Grapefruit Nail Polish Remover. This is the only product I didn’t get along with – it has been thrown out now. I haven’t tried the Eyelashes in Daily 3 but they look cool! 

Did you know about Skinn Food? Have you tried any of their products? 

I’ll have a new Vietnam Travels Post up for you soon – this will feature a lot of beach, sand and pool pictures, so stay tuned! 

Have a lovely day, guys!

Lots of Love

Show Off // #TanyaBurrLipsandNails

What a lovely SUNNY day it is today! I had a bad morning but I’m well rested now and woke up to the best parcel! My Tanya Burr Lips and Nails bits had arrived! I immediately wanted to show you the two products I ordered so here they are. 

I bought both products from FeelUnique but I know that Cloud10Beauty also stocks it and if you’re in the UK Superdrug just started selling the bits. Okay, lets get going with the products. I’m a coloured lip kind of gal so I really wanted a lipgloss with a strong colour and I fell in love with Exotic Island. It’s not as purple in real life but I still think it’s gorgeous. I’ve had it on my lips for about 3 hours now and it feels lovely. I’ll do a more in depth review soon. 

I turned 180 degrees and went with a nude colour for the nails. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect grey-ish toupe and Penguin Chic looks just up my street! I haven’t tried it yet so watch this space for a review soon! 

Have you tried anything from Tanya Burr’s Lips and Nails Line? Any lusts? 

Hold da nu wow, en lækker solrig dag det er i dag! Jeg havde en dårlig morgen, men har fået sovet og vågnede til en dejlig klang fra døren. Her stod postmanden med den bedste overraskelse – mine Tanya Burr Lips and Nails produkter! Jeg ville straks dele dem med jer, så tog nogle billeder og her er vi så nu. 


Jeg har købt begge produkter fra FeelUnique men jeg mener også at Cloud10Beauty sælger dem. Jeg ELSKER at have noget farve på læberne, så derfor skulle Exotic Island være min. Den er ikke så lilla som den er på hjemmesiden, men synes aligevel at farven er smuk. 


Med hensyn til neglelakken vendte jeg 180 grader og valgte en nude. Jeg har ledt efter en fin grå lak og med et navn som Penguin Chic kan det da ikke gå helt galt. Yup, jeg er en sucker for produktnavne! Har ikke prøvet den endnu, men der kommer snart en anmeldelse af begge produkter 🙂 

Har du prøvet noget fra Tanya Burr’s Lips og Nails linje? Eller har du kigget på nogen?

I only went in for milk….

Sooooo I went shopping and no, it was not shopping-shopping but food shopping! As you can see some bits and bobs went in the basket as well! All I have to say is wups


I was food shopping in Bilka a Dansih supermarket and I accidently went to the beauty area! I wasn’t going to pick anything up but then I saw that Bilka now stocks e.l.f. goodies so I, of course, had to pick some bits! I chose the Contouring Blush & Bronzer in St. Lucia, a Baked Blusher in Rich Rose and last but not least a Baked Eyeshadow in Burnt Plum. I’ve been wanting to try out the Contouring & Blush kit for a while now and the same goes for the Baked Eyeshadow in Burnt Plum which I saw over on a Danish blog called Rikkes Makeup Blog

As for the Rimmel bits goes I have to blame Alix from I Covet Thee and bloggers in general! Alix used the Rimmel London Glam Eyes HD in Brixton Brown in her latest Tutorial and I fell in love. As for the Lipstick – everyone and their dog knows about this Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in 107 and I saw that Matas had only one left and it had to be mine! And because I spend a certain amount on Rimmel products, I got a Just Let In Go – Eye Makeup Remover for free 😉 

// Dansk / Danish 
Som noget nyt vil jeg skrive indlæggene på dansk også. Kom gerne med noget feedback – så jeg ved om jeg skal blive ved 🙂 

Den anden dag skulle jeg i Bilka for at handle noget mad – det skal man jo have en gang i mellem 😉 Men så skete der det, at jeg kom til at gå hen i skønhedsafdelingen – ups! Her fandt jeg en dejlig væg fyldt med e.l.f. godter og jeg blev nødt til at have noget med hjem, selvfølgelig. Contouring & Blush i St. Lucia, en Baked Blush i Rich Rose og en Baked Eyeshadow i Burnt Plum røg med hjem. Jeg giver Rikke fra Rikkes Makeup Blog skylden for øjenskyggen. 

Hvad angår de 3 Rimmel produkter, giver jeg Alix fra I Covet Thee og bloggere i det hele taget skylden. Alix brugte den flotte Rimmel London Glam Eyes HD palette i Britxon Brown i hendes seneste tutorial. Alle bloggere og deres hund kender læbestiften og jeg har ikke kunne finde den i Matas, men da jeg kiggede på paletten var der på magisk vis én Lasting Finish by Kate Moss i farven 107 tilbage – haps haps haps og den var min. Jeg var så heldig at få en Just Let It Go Øjen Makeup Fjerner med i posen fordi jeg brugte et bestemt beløb på Rimmel produkter – jeg tror stadigvæk de kører med de kører med den kampagne, hvis du tænker at du vil have fat i øjen makeup fjerneren 😉 

As you can see, this post is quite long but it is also written in two languages. Let me know if this is annoying or something you can do with 🙂 It’s just something I’m testing.

Have you been shopping lately? Or just gone in for milk and came out with some beauty bits?


Lots of love
