Instagram XXII

When someone says “what is so cool about Instagram anyways, you’re just ruining the photos!?” I always  reply that it allows you to upload tiny bits of your day, whether it is in the moment or a memory, and give it a nice look with a filter. THIS without having to load it over to your laptop or something to edit it.The best part is that it allows everyone to capture and save the moment without needing to have photography skills. (And it gives a new way of being creative on!) How can you ruin a crappy mobile photo anyways? It’s a simple and cute way of mini blogging, if you don’t like it, get over it and move on.

Note: this is not a rant towards anyone. I just believe that if you don’t like something, don’t waste energy on hating it.

So, with that said, here's my first 8th days of december in photos :)

Self Reflection

Thought I would show my face on my blog again...

…because I can’t remember last time I did. And this might come as a shock to some of you at home, and to you who is interested in my style. Because this is a drastic change from the girl who left Norway to who I am now.

Who would have thought 3 years ago that I would stop abusing my hair with 1 bottle of hairspray monthly and over teasing it?

Now I hardly use anything. A little dry shampoo/dust it every now and then, a tiny spray of hairspray for hold. A little anti-frizzy spray to tame the crazy effect the english weather has on my hair. Oh, and absolutely no teasing anymore.

Who would have thought that? I certainly wouldn't.

Who would have thought 1 year ago that I would stop using fake lashes, tons of eyeshadow and a fat eyeliner?

Now I hardly use eyeliner any mire. In fact, I have only used eyeliner twice since the start of october. That’s over a month ago. I haven’t used fake lashes since the summer. Although I miss it sometimes, it is not something I want to wear every day anymore. And guess what, I have gotten more confident about my eyes.

 I don't feel like they are to small anymore.

I have in fact gotten more comfortable with my make-up free face due to more natural make-up. I feel more free, that I am more me than ever. That I have finally found myself, rescued myself from drowning in cosmetic and styles that doesn’t represent me.

I can still do gyaru inspired make-up if I want to, but it isn’t a style that define me any more. I love it. And I love my eyes. I also love having a soft and heathy hair. After all that teenage abuse it really deserve me growing up and becoming more mature.

What I’ll paint on my canvas is up to me.

Make-up! Or my face as others like to call it.

When I think about it, its strange that this has become my “face”, my identity. Through my life I have met a handful of people who hasn’t recognised me without make-up. And I am not the kind of person who can’t go outside without make-up. I do it all the time. I just love dolling up, meeting the day with bright lipstick and long lashes. A way for me to just make my day better. Because it’s kind of a hobby for me, a routine I do in the morning in order to wake up, just like the first cup of coffee.

So maybe this is my “face” after all, the natural me is more like a starting point. A canvas. All the tools (make-up, brushes, lashes ect) are available, why not use them? Why is it such a bad thing to do in someones eyes? Just because I like it, doesn’t mean I judge you badly if you don’t. It’s like my view on vegetarism vs. normal diet. If you accept that I don’t eat meat, I’ll accept that you do. So if you just accept that I wear this kind of make up almost every day, I’ll accept that you don’t.

Simple isn't it?

Why do we always have to have opinions about what others should and should not do? Just let it be. Life gets easier if you do.

This is not what I originally intended to write about.

Just wanted to make a simple update about my favorite type of make-up, and then all these thoughts appeared. Well, this IS my favorite kind of make up. 2-3 different shades of brown eyeshadow, winged eyeliner, a bit dramatic looking lashes, orange/pink blushes and bright lips. Really bright-colored lips is becoming my favorite this season. But light shades is a good number second.

Gonna hit the gym soon, but I’m really tired so I’m afraid this workout is going to be slow and hard. My brain is telling me that I would just love to skip it, but I know I’ll feel much more energized and awake afterwards. Such a lovely effect of working out~

Dare to wear something bright for spring~ 

[[Jacket-BikBok//T-Shirt-GT//Shorts-H&M//Tights-GT//Shoes-DinSko]]

So awkward poses, I think holidays have made it awkward to do outfit shots. In other words, it has been ages sins last post. Since then I have managed to purchase a t-shirt with awesome pastel print. It was a totally impulse buy I did with a very good friend. And since I can’t walk around in uggs, because they where the only flats I had, I got me some new shoes for spring!

I have also bought a very vibrant and violet lipstick, because I saw it on my best friend back home. There is just something about sunny weather which makes me want to wear bright lipstick that I have never dared to wear before. But this summer I am doing something about it.
