Wishing for a rocky and sparkling christmas!

I was cyber window shopping this morning, and thought I might as well make a little wish-list for my friends. I don’t know what else to wish for than clothes and statement accessories, because I want to be able to bring them with me to UK when I go back. This year I love all whats golden and sparkling. And I really need a statement necklace or two.

Bik Bok got a lot of amazing stuff this year, might be because I can’t purchase anything from the store because they don’t ship to Norway, which is making me want all this stuff much more. H&M got some cool stuff :)

1. If you find yourself unable to sleep, what do you usually do?

Recently I do yoga. Lying in bed doing relaxing and stress relief poses while focusing on my breath. While doing this I imagine a shape in a random color. For me its always a undefined ball of navy blue, always. When I breathe in I picture it getting bigger, and when I exhale it gets smaller.

uuhm, Cheddar, Vegetarian Peperoni, Wine, (because they are all so cheap in UK) and lipsticks :3 Oh and the baked eyeshadows from ELF!

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.

Morning Visitors.

I don’t mind getting up early in the morning if it is to see cue squirrels playing around in the backyard. I think they fancied all the leaves lying around. I really enjoyed using 5 mins in the morning watching them play, and of course trying to take pictures of them.

After a while our stray cat, which is a regular guest here, thought it was funny to watch the squirrel couple too. But the squirrels clearly disagreed to having a hungry cat watching them, and thought standing totally still on the fence would protect them before they decided it was safer to run away.

Gotta love mornings like this~!

We Heart Sushi~

We had been whining for a very long time how much we wanted sushi but couldn’t find sushi rice anywhere. We just hadn’t looked good enough, because suddenly it was there. Not daring to let it out of our sight again we dropped in our shopping basket and purchased all the ingredients. It was sushi sunday!

And gosh is was delicious to finally eat and taste it 
after so many weeks of longing~

Bonfire & Fireworks~

Oh yeah it’s been quite busy lately. Too much to do on too little time, and that’s just uni work. I am also supposed to see and experience stuff since I’m in another country. So I found some time on saturday to go to the bonfire and fireworks event~

Started the evening with homemade pizza and a nice atmosphere, and I was looking more and more forward to the fireworks. Children’s shows went off much earlier so we could hear it before going out.

While walking there we could smell the fireworks smoke.

We expected a bonfire, music and fireworks. Little did we know that the bonfire would be huge, that there would be a Tivoli there, that there would be shops selling toffee apples and cotton candy. And by all means, we didn’t expect the fireworks to last for 20 minutes, or being synced to blasting loud music.

It just made my night, actually, it made my weekend.

It was to awesome when the fireworks went with the beat of “I’m sexy and I know it”, a Muse song I don’t remember the name off, Ozzy Osbourne, and of course “Wonder Wall”!.

Here's a taste of the fireworks, 
to many pictures to put it all into one post :)
