Christmas Wish List 2017

December 23, 2017

It's the day before Christmas, and today I want to share with you what's on my wish list for this year


Photography is one of my biggest hobbies, and I’ve been wanting to upgrade my camera equipment for almost a year now. I’ve therefore put a camera lens on top of my wish list this year. I’ve been eyeing the Canon EF-M 22mm Pancake Lens ever since I bought my Canon EOS M3 camera. The lens has a aperture of f/2.0, which will add dimension, blur out the background and create sharp, in focus photos.

Becca is a brand that recently came to the Norwegian market, and after trying out the popular Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector and Backlight Priming Filter Primer, I've been eager to try out some more products from them. I'm a huge fan of highlighters and primers, and I've therefore put the Shimmering Skin Perfector in the shade Moonstone and the First Light Priming Filter Primer on my list.

I've gotten more and more into skincare over the last year, and some skincare items that are on my list for this year are the Origins Flower Fushion Sheet MasksLancôme Bi-Facial Visage, and the MAC Cosmetics Canded Nectar Lip Scrubtious. I've been falling more and more in love with sheet masks as they are easy to remove and make your skin feel clean, refreshed and nourished. I'm also a huge fan of micellar waters to remove my makeup. I've been very impressed with the micellar waters from Lancôme, and have therefore put the Lancôme Bi-Facil Visage Micellar Water on the list, which I haven't tried yet. 

I’ve also put a few of my all time favorites on my list, as I’m running out and need new ones. The first being my beloved Pure Plush Deep Cleanser from bareMinerals, which does a great job at cleansing without leaving my skin feeling dry. I've put the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation on my list, as it’s one of the best skin-like foundations I’ve ever tried. I've also put a few Sigma brushes on my list, two of them being the Round Kabuki F82, and the Small Eyeliner E10 brush. Sigma is definitely one of my favorite brands when it comes to makeup brushes, as they have amazing quality for a cheap prize.

Lastly I've put the Daniel Wellington Classic Black Sheffield watch, together with the Rose Gold Classic Cuff on the list. I'm all about design, and I instantly fell in love with the watch and the cuff after seing them on Instagram. They are more on the pricey side, but I think it's definitely worth it as the design is gorgeous and of good quality!

my gorgeous birthday present

On October 11th I turned 20 years old, and I'm now officially an adult! I had a great time celebrating my birthday with my best friends at my favorite restaurant, as well as chilling at home with my boyfriend in the evening. I got some lovely gifts from my family, and I was lucky to get to choose two gorgeous rings from Pandora, as my birthday gift from my boyfriend. I picked out a plain wishbone shaped ring for more of an everyday vibe, and a diamond wishbone shaped one for special occasions, or when I want to wear something a bit more sparkly. The two rings also go great together for when I want to wear both. They are definitely my new favorite pieces of jewelry!

A New Scent

October 21, 2017

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet

"Created for an irresistibly charming and flirtatious woman, Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet embodies the couture spirit of Dior in a sparkling and sensual essence. Unfurling a delicate blend of Sicilian orange essence to reveal a tender floral heart, the fragrance unveils notes of pink peony and Damascus rose. As a finishing touch, white musks softly envelop this light and sensual floral bouquet." 

 - Sephora

One of my favorite products when it comes to beauty are perfumes. I love a good scent - it doesn't only smell good, it also makes me feel good. I own a tiny collection of 5 perfumes, where mostly of them are floral scented ones. I recently picked up a new perfume for my collection, and this time I went for Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet. I instantly fell in love with this scent at the first smell, and after finishing my tiny sample of the perfume, I just had to go get a full size. Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet is a chic and romantic Eau de Toilette with hints of pink peony, damascus rose, white musks and sicilian orange essence. I love the packaging of the perfume - it's so gorgeous, and I love the luxurious feel to it. As this is an Eau de Toilette, the scent doesn't last as long as a perfume does, and it has to be reapplied throughout the day if you want it to last all day. The scent is one of my favorites out of my other perfumes, and it'll definitely be my new go-to for when I'm going somewhere special! 

Have you tried out Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet?
