Lanzarote Photodiary

Kenneth and I just came back from one week on Lanzarote, Canary Islands, which is probably the prettiest place I have ever been in my entire life. Also, it was our first holiday together, so that probably added to the magical feeling as well haha. As you guys know we live in Scandinavia and the winters here are long and cold. It was the perfect time to get away just before spring kicks in here. We had around 21-23 degrees most days and were able to tan, swim in the ocean and wear lighter clothes. 

We stayed at Blue Sea Hotel in Puerto del Carmen. The hotel was in the older part of town, but only a twenty minute stroll to the newer part of town with restaurants, bars, and shopping all located on the beachfront. We also spent a day in the capital Arrecife and two days in Playa Blanca (which is literally Paradise on earth) swimming in the crystal clear water and chilling on the golden sand. I can definitely imagine going back to Lanzarote and the Canary Islands again some day. However our next trip is to Gumbet, Turkey in September with Kenneth's family and I'm very excited about that too.

I'm off from work today, so just wanted to check in and share these photos with you guys. Gonna have a look at the video clips i filmed during the holiday and see if it's worth anything. Much love! 😎


L'Oreal Luxe Gala 2016

Hey guys. Yesterday I attended my second company sales meeting and gala with Urban Decay and the rest of the L'Oreal Luxe brands at Radisson Blu here in Copenhagen. It's always lovely to hear news about upcoming launches and being spoiled - check out my goodiebag on snapchat at sebastiansimon. I also got to show off my new bubblegum blue hair that I'm kind of in love with. I'll be posting a video about the color and my extensions shortly. Pssst, I also tried to link to everything I was wearing or at least similar items. 

So far, this year has been pretty great. I'm looking forward to going to Amsterdam with my boyfriend in March - have any of you guys been? And do you have any travel tips? Please let me know! xo


Beauty Favorites | New video

Just uploaded a brand new video after a seven month hiatus. Phew. I'm shocked at how easy it is to edit on my MacBook so I felt a little something inside that makes me want to post more. Now. Or tomorrow. Or very, very soon. Here's what I was wearing in the video:

Dress from nelly.com
H&M necklace gifted from my colleages
Nail polish is L'Oreal Island In The Sun

Half Baked, High, Beware, Riff and Buck eyeshadow from UD
24/7 Perversion liquid liner from UD
Urban Decay Trap lashes
Urban Decay Sheer Obsessed lipstick

Oh, I also dyed my hair back to pastels. Really liking this purple/pink combo right now. I will probably always return to these colors I think. 


Orange hair tips

Around two months ago I decided that I needed a little hair change - as I always do - dyed my hair orange and chopped off my long bangs. It's been fun, but as usual I'm about to go back to my lovely pastels. There's just one more 80's work look involving crimped hair and Whitney Houston makeup that must happen next week before getting back to basics. So, I thought I would share my orange hair tips before saying goodbye.

Orange is fun. Constant redying, is not. I started out with Direction's Apricot which looked cool, but lasted approximately one hair wash. Do not recommend. Next I mixed Direction's Mandarin with a tiny blop of Bright Daffodil. Cool color, better longevity, pretty bad fading. Boo. However, the orange that has worked best for me has been Napalm Orange from Special Effects. The color starts out a dark, neon red-ish orange that almost hurts to look at (picture six) and fades into a nice, intense yellow based orange (picture five) that after five hair washes still doesn't need any touching up. Very pleased with Special Effects as always and will keep using their hair dyes for my next adventure. Talking about that, please say a little prayer to the hair gods for me so my hair will go blonde without any nasty stains when I bleach it next week.. 



Fall kickin in

Hey guys. It's been a while - hope you're all doing great. I'm currently blogging from the passenger seat of my boyfriend's car. We're driving home to Copenhagen after a long weekend visiting my family in Jutland. It was his first time meeting my family and it went great. Well.. Expect for me nearly coughing up my lungs and/or drowning in snot. Having the flu is so delicious.

Anyway, fall has arrived and it's beautiful and I've started taking more pictures again lately, so if my boyfriend keeps urging me to blog, maybe I'll start posting more frequently. In all honesty, I never stopped feeling like a blogger or grew tired of doing this. The makeup artist part of my life just really took over the past year and a half. Have a lovely week everyone.
