My tattoo plans

After I took my first tattoo - "Viva la Vida", I'm like in love with tattoos! I want one hear and there.. but I now where the line goes, and for me (at this time) it's only going as long as the "illustration" picure I made her downunder;



You may probelly think it looks a littlebit odd, but all these signs/drawings have a meaning for me. Maybe not the Roman numbers are sooo special, but I have allways loved Roman numbers + it's my date of birth.. At least, if I got it right this time ;)

It's just a "picture" of what I "have-in-mind"..

My favorite mascara

L'oreal, Telescopic Mascara - Carbon Black!

My favorite mascara

Yes, you heard me! This is one of my best mascaras.
It lenghtens my lashes and make them ultra long! I never get black underneeth my eyes, even if it's raining, hot, running or swimming in the sea! I wonder how this mascara would be if it was waterproof!

The price is a little bit expensive - spescially in my country, but + for the simple design.
Absolute the best mascara I have tried.

What is your favorite mascara?

This BEAUTIFUL dress, is so pretty! The dress is from Meghan Fabulous, and is called The Ryan Dress. The colours, the pattern, the design.... perfect! As you probelly have noticed by now, I absolutly love butterflies. (When I paint something, I almost everytime paint butterflies)

The price is unfortantly to high for me, but if you somehow have 1350 dollars to much in your bank account- you could allways make one of my dreams come true for my birthday on friday ;-)

You can buy the dress here

3 easy hair styles for spring/summer-09

I am sure a lot of you are wondering what hairstyles are popular this spring/summer? I am too! So I have been searching around for some inspiration pictures, just to get an ide of what's coming up!

My hair is damadged from trying to become a blond, so now I really should need a new haircut! Today I am thinking of going to the hairdresses to colour my grownout hair.. It's not looking really nice at the moment!

So, here is your hair inspiration! I hope one or two of the hairstyles will give you an inspiration for your own hair!

Floral hair decoration



Straight, curled, short or long - floral decoration on your hair is beautiful. It will bring you hair, face and clothes to life!

Tip:
You can buy cheap hairclips with exotic flowers and colours at for example, H&M.


Super straight hair



You will need a hair straightner and a good heat protector for your hair! There are a lot of great products to choose between, ask your hairdresser or someone at the Drugstore for recommandation!

Tip:
For leaving all you flyaways away + adding shine, I would say you should deffently try Biosilk!
Rub your hands together with a very small amount, and go trew your hair with it. This will keep flyaways away and make your hair smooth and silky straight!

Do not put serum in your roots, this will make it look greasy and that's not really the style you are going for.. I'm sorry to say, but to much of the good stuff will do the same. (But again, you will have your bottle for ages!!)


The center hair parts with body and bounce


Perfect for the natural look, bohem, school, beach +

This is the new straighten hair look, it's really simple to do! Section your hair at the middle and hair strengthen it. After straightening it, focus on creating some movement from the mid-lengst to the end with the straightner.

Tip:
To see how you can do it yourself, watch the video here


The half-up & Half-down



The perfect mix between wearing your hair back from your face but still wearing it “out.”

This hairstyle is popular because it shows off your neck - without necessarily showing off your ears.

Tip:
This hairstyle is perfect for the hippie dresses!



Which hairstyle is your favorite? What styles are you going for this season?
I would love to see a picture of your hairstyles, for more inspiration!

Get an organized wardrobe!

Orginization is the best way to get a tidy wardrobe. There are a lot of great ideas for making a organized wardrobe, Ikea has one of them!



This is a great organized wardrobe from Ikea. You can buy the wardrobe in pieces, so you get the perfect storage for your clothes, shoes and accessories.

There are a lot of different ways you can get your wardrobe organised. You don't have to buy a new wardrobe(!). I hope some of this tips will help you on the way!

Drawers
A great ide for putting your accessories;
belts, scarfs, braclets, hairbands or maybe socks and singlets!



Hangers
You can easly find a simple wardrobe, that's only a hanger. The only one I can think of that's international, is from Ikea. With this kind of hanger you can hang all your pretty dresses, skirts, jackets and shirts on. It is also great for hanging your jeans and belts on!

Boxes
A great idea to put all your small thing in! You can do like me - put your underwear and all small accessories in them.
Instead of having all your shoes haning around in the house, you can save the shoebox when you buy yourself a new pair of shoes.. Rapp nice giftpaper around the shoebox, and take a picture of the shoes and glue it the front. This way you will have all your shoes organised!


Inspiration picked up from Google..

Tips;
Make your own personal hanger! Buy wood-hangers and paint them in which colour you like. Glue on stickers, glitter or diamonds for a more elegant look. Tie a silk ribbon around the hanger and volĂ  - you have your own homemade hanger!

Later, I will tell you how you can get your earrings organised! It's creative, can be used as a picture on the wall (I won't tell you more yet!).


Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a nice day!
