A hot mess?

________ 2018-05-29 ________

Halllooo loves ♥ It is currently sehri time soon and here I am, inspired like always. Right now it just feels like I want to do it ALL at the SAME time lol. And that, boys and girls, does not end well. I can practically start a photo album, website, skincare routine, youtube planning all in one go and the next day I just push everything down my table and think it’s weird I thought THAT was inspiring lol. Like… I keep thinking now that Youtube is not “me”, I won’t be able to do it, just to get an extraordinary moodswing and the next second feel like I can conquer the world. Am I the only one? I think that’s more annoying than not being inspired. I just feel like a hot mess and like I have so little time and so much to do. Ugh.

Anyhow, today I went out to visit one of the new “Normal” shops that just opened here in Helsingborg. It’s been a thing in Denmark for quite some time but still new here! I think you can actually call it a Flying Tiger store, just minus all the DIY and craft stuff and instead think in cheap skincare hauls-circles. Something. The main reason I parked my car outside the walking street, even though I was tired as hell, was this St ilves apricot scrub! I know I’ve been talking quite a lot about this on my instagram lately, but after hearing your guys horror stories and reading that very scary article about the lawsuit, I thought it would be a nice hard scrub for my legs lol! I’m dealing with ingrown hair and really right now anything will do. Also legs aren’t that sensitive anyway, I don’t give two cents about mine. Just look soft and smooth thank you very much!

Anker portable charger

________ 2018-05-13 ________

Back home again! This 4 day trip to Stockholm was soo needed, especially in this heat. To just forget all duties and to-do-lists and enjoy the beautiful weather, no have to’s, no emergency calls. It was almost like I was living another life for a moment lol. We got a bit late on our way to the airport, so the baggage never got on the plan. Ehm… The lady at the helpdesk asked us to take it with us through security and just throw everything away that didn’t make it to the other side. I almost screamed when I thought about my new eyebrow scissors from Anastasia.. Are you crazy?! lol.

One thing that literally saved my whole trip was this powerbank from Anker. As with everything else, I asked you guys for a good solid portable charger for my trips, and 99% of you recommended me an Anker. Said & done, it was ordered the same day! I’ve been using this for almost a month now and I am so much in love! My sister and I fully charged our phones twice and this powerbank STILL had 3 dots left! It is crazyyyy how fast it is! Let’s look at the pro & cons!

PRO’s
- Fastest charger out there.
- A little net pouch comes with it to secure it in your handbag.
- Multifunctional powerbank—you can charge TWO phones at the same time!
- Doesn’t take much time to charge it fully as well. Put it on for a whole night and you can get through a day with constant snapchatting & instastoring.
- You don’t have to turn it off! The minute you take off your iphone, it’ll go into standby mode itself until you put on another phone.
- It’s small! Will easily fit in your handbag without any problems lol.

CON’s
- The design is a bit boring. Black and ugh… Maybe to give it a “serious” look? Idk.. I would love something brighter and more colourful.
- It’s a bit heavy.. I mean not that it’s a problem… But yea, would love something lighter.
- The only thing that came in the box was the powerbank and a wire to charge it with. A plug would be nice as well.. But then again, maybe this is the standard for portable chargers?

Do I recommend this? YES YES YES! I payed approximately £30 and it’s honestly worth soo much more. I purchased it through ebay and you can find the direct link HERE. I had no tax or VAT problems and it arrived within a week. I researched how much it would be on a swedish site and found it for almost £100 lol… Noooo thank you! Thank you so much for your help lovely ladies. Forever thankful ♥

Solotica—Hidrocor Ocre

________ 2018-02-15 ________

Back again with the contacts lool! As you remember, my last purchase from the brand Solotica was the Hidrocor Ice. I’ve written a detailed blogpost about that which you can find HERE. Those contacts were not really for daily use. More for a party look, Eid or maybe a wedding? Yes. For a daily use I was out looking for something that was more natural. So I came across this color, from the same brand, called Hidrocor Ocre! Tooooo die for! The contact lens is in an orange/hazel color, which actually scared me a little. I opened the tiny bottles and was like whaaaaat? Lol. Turns out it looks SO NATURAL on my dark brown pakistani eyes! Absolutely love how pigmented they are and most importantly; the comfort level! I have been wearing these for almost a week now, and I basically use them as my real eyes. No redness (nazar na laghe!!!) and it barely feels like I’m wearing anything! Obviously, if you already have dry eyes, it’s a good idea to get eyedrops as well, but I have not had any problem with any dryness so far and hopefully won’t either.

First thing’s first; I ordered these and my Ice ones from the same website—Visionmarketplace. It’s trustworthy, got fast shipping and it has Paypal!! That’s the most important thing! Very important that it’s secure and that you can get your money back if anything happens to the package upon arrival. So thumbs up for that! These contacts are quite pricy yes, but so worth it. You’ve heard about the daily and monthly ones, but yearly? No? Well, these can be used for a WHOLE DAMN YEAR!!!

If you don’t already know; I use transparent prescription contact lenses since 8′th grade cause of my weak eyesight, so putting these in were never a problem. Just feels normal? Apart from you being extra cautious of course, they’re expensive so show a little softness while picking them up from the bottles. I ordered these in the same prescription I have in my transparent ones; 2.50. So yes, you can choose the power from the drop down menu on their site. I think the shipping time depends on whether you decide to buy prescription ones or not, cause it obviously takes time to get them made for you.

Solotica—Hidrocor Ice

________ 2017-12-17 ________

Jag har, sedan jag var 15 år gammal, alltid använt mig av Fargadelinser.se för tja.. just färgade linser haha! De är bra och billiga men så som med allt annat har jag växt ur de orealistiska typerna. Ni vet, de med svart ytterkant som ser lite väl kattiga ut? Not really my cup of tea anymore. Solotica och Desiolens är båda välkända namn just nu inom färgade linser-branschen (heter det så?). Desiolens är som sagt speciellt framtagna för oss desis—med mörkbruna chokladiga ögon.

Den här gången gick jag efter Solotica. Jag kollade igenom deras Instagram och flera Youtube klipp på folk som testat de olika färgerna—speciellt de med bruna ögon som jag. Till sist bestämde jag mig för att gå efter Hidrocor Ice! En jättefin ljusblå färg som näääästan täcker all det bruna.

Linserna är bekväma att sätta i och färgen är drömlik men framför allt realistisk! Linserna kom i ett litet paket med två små burkar som man fick “riva upp”. En liten söt behållare fick man också men linsvätska får man inhandla själv såklart! Jag har dålig syn så jag beställde mina med styrka—2,50 på båda ögonen. Kostade mig 88 GPB men dessa håller i ett år! Standard för linser är ju att de håller i en månad bara men här tycker jag att man investerar istället! Jag har köpt mina på Visionmarketplace. Förutom att vänster ögats lins rör sig lite (då man ser den bruna färgen under) så känner jag att dessa är så naturliga som det bara kan bli! Nedan ser ni före-bilder.

//T R A N S L A T I O N; A few weeks back I finally made a Solotica order! For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about; colored contacts! I’ve been wanting to try on this brand for ages, but been too lazy. It’s quite similar to Desiolens, but I would say the pigment is stronger in these ones.

So, I was mainly after some realistic looking contacts, without it looking too “catty” and spooky lol. You all remember those with the blackish edge right? Not really my cup of tea anymore. I went with an icy blue color called Hidrocor Ice. It’s similar to their Hidrocor Cristal, but the cristal ones are too white for my taste. The contacts arrived last week and are the most comfortable colored contacts I’ve ever worn. And that’s coming from someone who’s tried on every possible brand ever lol.

They arrived in small “jars” and a little cute container where you can store them for future use. The lens solution is something you have to buy separately btw. I have weak eyesight so it took a little longer than usual for them to despatch the shipment, as they make the order specially for you, but overall I’m satisfied! Visionmarketplace is the website I ordered mine from and my order landed on 88 GPB. Other than the left eyed contact moving sometimes, I’ve had no problem whatsoever. Really recommend this brand and I will definitely be buying more colors! The ++ is that you can use these for up to 1 year! Standard durability is one month for colored contacts, so the price really does justice to that year. Before-pictures below;

Linsen är i ljusblå färg som knappt syns, så var lite försiktiga med att dra ut den från de små burkarna!
//T R A N S L A T I O N; The contact is in a very light blue color, so it’s nearly impossible to find the contact in the solution lol. Be careful so it doesn’t disappear.

Såhär inzoomat ser man såklart även de små pixlarna, men annars syns de inte alls!
//T R A N S L A T I O N; & obviously when it’s zoomed in this much, you can even see the pixlars, which are btw not so visible at all irl.

Och här har vi då hur de ser ut på själva ögat.
//T R A N S L A T I O N; & lastly; how they look on the eye.

Anastasia scissors

________ 2017-12-13 ________

Finaste rosaste saxen från självaste Anastasia! Jag la precis ut en poll på instagram där jag frågade om det var värt att betala 255 kr för en sax och 200 av er svarade nej haha… Jag vet inte. Den är så fin och så vass.. Kanske behåller den ändå? Har testat tweezer från Anastasia också, och den är nog en av de bästa jag någonsin skådat! Kanske ska lägga 200 kr på den istället? JAG VET INTE! ÅH! Hämtade ut detta paketet från Kicks idag så får kolla läget lite. Beställde den ju ifs för att jag hade hört så bra om det, men nu i efterhand känns det lite väl dyrt då jag knappt använder saxen på ögonbrynen lol..

//T R A N S L A T I O N; Eyebrow-scissors from Anastasia! Do you guys think it’s worth paying 25-30 pounds for a pair of scissors? I mean.. They are from Anastasia after all. Although I like the tweezer more and maybe should invest in that instead? Ugh, I don’t know. These scissors are very sharp and very pinkish, but on the other hand; I barely use scissors on my eyebrows to start off with lol. Let’s just wait and see if I keep em’ or not (inner demon saying yes).
