THE MOST LUXURIOUS CANDLE I OWN

Maybe some of you might not consider Voluspa UK that luxurious since there are pricier and more high-end candles out there (I'm looking at you, Diptyque), but for me, this is the first dip (pun intended) into more luxurious home scents.

BLUSH & BLACK

The pictures are from Pinterest and Google Search. Pildid Pinterestist ja Google Searchist.

I don't know about you, but even though it's still snowy outside where I live, there's a little spring enthusiast awakening in me and I keep picturing myself strolling around town in a pink blush coat with a coffee cup on one hand and Noodle in the other while the sun is shining and birds are chirping.

PRODUCT FACE-OFF: NUDE'TUDE VS NUDE DUDE

Hello everybody! So the only eyeshadow palettes I pretty much ever use are the nude kind (except for one mishap where I ordered a knock-off 100 shadow palette off eBay, painted my face pink and green and then a boy I liked said I should wear less make up. So yup, it was nudes from there on).

SUNDAY IN PICTURES

Hi everybody! This Sunday in Pictures post comes to you on a Saturday because I realized I haven't posted pictures of my actual Valentine's day. Like I wrote last Sunday, we really didn't do anything that action-packed, just spent a nice morning and evening at home and visited relatives in the daytime (also took a nice long walk in the winter cold to get there). I have to give out a warning though: these pictures heavily feature our dog, Noodle the pomeranian.

NEW IN: INTERIOR EDITION

Hello again! I thought I would share some of the decorative pieces I picked up when we went on a little shopping trip the other day. We spent a whole month in Estonia and when we came back, I felt I wanted to make some changes to the interior of our house. I guess spending time away does that, you come back with some fresh eyes. Here are the things I picked up!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!


I don't know when a little Martha Stewart came over me, but I decided to go all out for a pre-Valentine's Day party at my place. I baked some goodies and also made my first macarons, which turned out surprisingly well! The trick was to pay attention to some technical details (I followed the tips HERE). Some chocolate cakelets and muffins were also featured and Ahto surprised me with a bouquet of tulips that made me very happy (hence all the pictures with them). We talked, drank some coffee and had a wonderful afternoon. Stick around for some pictures!

3 LIP LOOKS FOR VALENTINE'S

With Valentine's Day coming up, I wanted to show you the make up I'll be wearing for that day. When I got to it however, I couldn't decide which lip to go with... so I went with three options. I wanted a sweet girly look with the pink lip gloss, but the red lipstick matched with my blouse perfectly and I really love the dark look as well. Do you have a favourite?

SUNDAY IN PICTURES

We spent a lovely Sunday just lounging, watching TV, drinking coffee and gazing outside while the snow kept pouring and pouring! I bought these flowers the other day and just love them! If anyone knows what they are called, let me know!

ALL YOU NEED IS SHOES (FOR VALENTINE'S)

I don't know why I hardly ever shop on ASOS. Well, actually I do know - since Norway isn't part of the EU, I can only spend a maximum of 350 NOK or 36€ without having to pay for customs.. which sucks. Allthough countries part of the EU don't have a problem with tax, I am incredibly happy, because all of these shoes are under 36€! What a bargain!

TRAVEL TIPS: SKIN- & BODYCARE

This is the last post I'm going to share about travelling (honestly!). The last tip I would like to share is minis. Mini everything. I even have a mini mouthwash (it really comes in handy). I was never the girl that cared for small travel-sized products, I just threw my huge tub of moisturizer, 500 ml shampoo and conditioner and maybe some products for washing my face in the bag and I was good to go. Little did I know how much travel-sized products would change my life - they are just so darn handy!
