The light in your eyes makes the entire world shine

The weather was so nice today that I decided to go for a walk with my camera and my headphones. It really feels like summer is on its way now, but knowing where I live we'll probably get more snow soon..haha

What just happened?

I usually check my blog every day just to see if I've gotten any comments or visitors at all. I usually have between 30-70 visitors per day but today I saw this:

So far (TODAY) I've had 1152 visitors. I don't know how you found me, if someone linked me or something, but hello! I'm happily surprised that you all went to look at my blog! (If someone did link me, thank you!)

Haha this was such a WTF moment for me.. most readers I've ever had in a day I think.

New stuff from ebay!

This is what I got in my package from ebay the other day! 
Lime Crime Serpentina (can't WAIT to try it out but need to get better first BUHU)
A pack of 3 Jordana Best lash extreme mascara (tried it, LOVE it)

Now I just wanted to tell you guys that there will probably not be that much updates here for the coming 2 weeks since I'm going to eat penicillin and need to rest to get better! But I hope all of you are great, and you'll see me soon enough!

Sunshine and the drugstore

The sun is shining and today feels like a good day. My love and I went to town to get some stuff done, and I also went to the drugstore to get some stuff that the doctor recommended. She said to come back if it's not better by friday, but I hope I won't have to. 

I also got a package from ebay today, I'll show it to you tomorrow maybe! Right now I just want to relax for a little bit, so I'll talk to you guys later! BYYYYE

Chicken dinner and a cold

I made the easiest and probably most healthy dinner in a while tonight. Chicken, couscous and cucumber!
Not much of a salad but I actually prefer only cucumber most of the time.

Today I pity myself, cause I've got a cold and fever.. which sucks. But that's life I guess. I've had so much inspiration lately, with makeup and such, and now I can't do it since I feel so tired all the time and need to rest a bit. But when I get better I'm gonna start taking advantage of the beautiful weather and go for walks, if anyone wants to join me you're more than welcome! 

Another thing, I've had the biggest addiction to coca-cola since what feels like forever, but the last years I've probably been drinking it every single day. So much trash in my body, not good. Anyways, today I woke up and decided that I don't want to drink cola anymore, so I haven't had a zip all day! Haha it probably sounds kind of silly to you guys but it's a sugar addiction I need to fight. I just need to keep reminding myself of how bad it is for me instead of thinking about how good it tastes! 

 dinner was delicious!

E.L.F. Mineral Eyeshadow swatches/review

A friend and I ordered some stuff from e.l.f. a while back (they had a huge sale and free shipping so woho!)
I went to pick up the package the other day so now I thought that I would actually swatch these eyeshadows for you! haha that's something I've never done before, but I really like when other people do it so I might as well start myself! (I noticed now while copying the link for above that they actually have these eyeshadows on sale right now, if any of you guys want to check it out)

First off, the numbers are to show what I used as a base for these swatches, since I like to see the difference.
1 = NYX Jumbo Pencil Milk
2 = NYX Jumbo Pencil Black Bean
3 = No primer or base

It was hard to give justice to the pigments with my camera, but I did try my best.

Natural (1) is not as "see through" as it looks like, but with the milk pencil it kind of gave it sort of a pink tone, which can be quite nice, like a nude pink. On the other hand with the black bean it got a pretty bronze color that I really liked! One thing about this color though is that on the website it showed as a matte shadow with no shimmer at all, but as you can see it has just as much shimmer as the rest of them. It's fine by me, I liked it anyways!

Angelic with the milk base gave it a really lovely white shimmering look, perfect for the inner corner of my eyes and such, or if I just want a shimmering white eyeshadow! With the black bean it turned quite dark silver, but I imagined it would cause of the black base. Still a lovely color and good pigments! The one without base doesn't actually show off much, in some angles you can't even see it's there, so it's just like a little shimmer boost I guess, could be cool to try on top of other colors to add shimmer!

Smoldering is just lovely, I love the dark almost metallic shimmering grey! With the milk it made a lighter metallic grey and with the black bean a darker one, perfect for a light/dark smokey eye with only one shadow! It didn't show off too much without base, but that's fine by me, I usually use base when I want vibrant colors.

Golden, I was pleased with this color, it has good pigment and I think it looks super good with the black bean, it gives it the sort of dark golden I was looking for. I personally don't really like it with the milk since I think it gets to light, but I've never actually used golden colors before so maybe I'll change my mind later on! Without the base it's still fairly pigmented, gives a nice shimmer of gold, maybe for a more natural makeup where you just want the gold to "hint" so to say.
On the website this color looks completely different on the two pictures where it's in the package, but I think the swatch they have gives a more fair color to it.

Over all, I'm very pleased with these shadows. I like the pigments, but if you want them to be vibrant you'll want to use a base. They are really cheap so I thinks it's a good deal!
Now I need to stop before this wall of text gets any longer.. haha. But I hope you guys enjoyed this swatch/review, I can't wait to actually do a makeup with them and see what they're like!
And for the record, I did not get paid or anything to do this review (or mention the sale), my opinions on these eyeshadows are 100% honest and I just wanted to share them with you!

When you don't know what you're looking to find

Jag känner mig rastlös, sådär så att det praktiskt taget kryper under huden och jag vill bara göra göra göra massor med saker, men jag vet inte riktigt vad. Så istället spenderar jag dagarna med att hitta inspiration, drömma om grönare tider och fundera över livet. Jag är i ett sånt state of mind att jag önskar att jag visste precis vad jag vill göra med resten av mitt liv, men jag har ingen aning what so ever. Det skrämmer mig lite, men inte lika mycket som det hade gjort för något år sen.

Jag känner ett sug efter att fotografera också, vackra inspirerande bilder som betyder någonting för någon. Och jag vill rida, ÅÅH vad jag saknar att rida, eller att överhuvudtaget pyssla om en häst, så himla mysigt. Men det är inte direkt ultimat att kolla efter hästar nu, fast älskling sa ju iofs att jag fick ha den i köket. Fast det blir väl tokigt.

Summan av kardemumman är att allting just nu känns väldigt grått och trist, när jag vill ha massor med färg och ljus av alla dess slag. Kanske får sätta mig ner och rita mina egna färger, vi får väl se.

Another sunday

Hey guys!
How has your weekend been? Mine has been good, started friday by following my mother to the tattoo shop, then I fixed a bit on her car while she was getting a tattoo. I went to see my best friend for a bit and her adorable cat (on the picture below) isn't he the cutest little monster ever?? :D got a call in the middle of the night from a drunk friend that needed a ride home too, but that was fun!
On saturday my boyfriends sister came over to get her makeup and nails done for the festival House of Metal that was happening in town, so we did dark nails, dark makeup and I lend her some of my accessories too ^-^ I hope she had fun! In the evening we were hanging out with some friends, just chilling!
Today we were supposed to have dinner guests but that fell through so I simply made pancakes,  I've been craving it for days! haha
Oh well, that was a little bit about my weekend. Until we meet again,  BYE PEEPS!
