Old Hollywood Glam Make-Up | Christmas Edition

Happy Holidays ♥ Who’s excited for a new year? I know I am! I’m so excited for a fresh start and lots of new opportunities. I really hope you all had a wonderful Christmas celebration with your family and loved ones – and that you got everything you wished for!

So for this make-up look I was inspired by the old Hollywood glamour – all the glitter, glam and the classic red lip. My sister helped me to create the most gorgeous hairstyle which makes this look even more glamorous. I also ended up wearing this look for Christmas Eve – and I must say that this has to be my favorite tutorial of all times! Obsessed ♥

Glowing Christmas Make-Up Tutorial | Urban Decay Naked Smokey Palette


Good Morning, Sweeties ♥ I really hope your day has been treating you good so far! With Christmas only a week away there’s so much stuff I need to get done – but luckily I’ve almost wrapped all the presents, but I still have to make a dress, run lots of errands, pre-film some videos and pack for two upcoming trips. So much to do, so little time! But I’m not here to stress you out about what I need to get done by next week – I’m here to share my first Christmas Make-up look of the year ♥ It’s classic, yet special in it’s own way!


I was planning on doing a look with the classic red lips, but in the end I decided to go for a different lip color – a warm redish-brow and I really love how it turned out! I paired it up with a light-handed black smokey eye with some silvery shimmer using the Urban Decay Naked Smokey Palette. For this tutorial it was actually the first time using the UD palette and I’m obsessed with all the beautiful colors – and of course I had to add lots of glow to the skin!

This look is perfect for many occasions and not only for the holidays. It will look really nice on all from a date night to New Year’s Eve as well! What’s great with creating a black smokey eye is that it will fit almost every single lip color there is and you’ll have plenty of different options with the choose of outfit as well. So if you want to see how I created this look then you know the drill – hit play ⇓

Ski Goggles Winter Guide 2016 + OAKLEY GIVEAWAY!


Happy Sunday ♥ So the winter season is well underway and all across the Northern hemisphere, from Norway to the Alps, that also means it’s ski season. If you’ve been following me for a while you probably know how much I love to hit the slopes and that I use every single opportunity I have to snowboard – even in the summer – and since christmas is around the corner I therefore thought it would be the perfect chance to share a “Ski Goggles Guide” with you since it also could turn out to be the perfect gift to give away to someone you care about. For this post I’ve collaborated with Smartbuyglasses and I’ll be giving away a pair of the Oakley Flight Deck googles to one of my lucky readers! How exciting?! These are by far some of my favorite goggles! The giveaway will be active until December 20th and all the information on how to enter will be at the end of this post.

Since I spend a lot of my time on a snowboard I know how important it is to have the right googles, so before you pack your bags for a “white week”, you’re going to want some top notch goggles to protect your eyes on the slopes. So what are the most important things to look for when you’re choosing a pair? Whether you’re a newbie or a pro-skier, there’s a lot of choice and it can be difficult to decide which goggles to buy. Join us as we take a look at the top ski goggles to buy this season;


Ski goggles come in every color of the rainbow, but unless you’re a professional, you probably don’t want to break the bank buying goggles of varying colors for different conditions – so what’s the failsafe all-rounder? Yellow or orange lenses enhance contrast and increase definition, blocking out blue light to give you a clear view even on foggy days. The Oakley A-FRAME can be found HERE.  


Inevitably, sooner or later, even the best skiers fall over. It’s all part of the fun! But you don’t want to risk smashing your goggles with your first tumble, so you want to make sure they’re up to the task. Lenses made of polycarbonate or trivex offer the best protection. The Cebe Origins can be found HERE.


The last thing you want when you’re whizzing down the slope is for your lenses to fog up, obstructing your vision and potentially putting you in danger. Some of the top models, such as the Oakley AIRBRAKE come with great snit-fogging capabilities, to ensure optimum optics all day long, no matter the weather. Find The Oakley AIRBRAKE HERE.


There’s nothing worse than ending a day on the slopes with red marks around your nose – usually the result of poor padding. The Bolle Mojo are some of the most affordable goggles on the market and with the cushy padding, you won’t be itching to take them Find the Bolle Mojo Goggles HERE.


UV Protection is not something to take lightly and whilst frequent ski goers are aware of just how much sunglight you are exposed to, for newbies this is worth noting. Aside from good quality sunscreen, the right ski goggles are probably the next most important item to avoid sunburn and ruining your ski holiday. Top on our list is the Smith I/O which reduces UV intrusion and at a mid-price point has all the basics and nifty added features of the premium price ski goggles. The Smith I/O can be found HERE.


One of the beauties of skiing is taking in the breathtaking views as you reach the top of the hills and speed down to the bottom of the piste. For maximum visual acuity, goggles which offer widescreen coverage are you best bet. The Oakley Flight Deck is our top pick. With a greater lens surface area, the spherical shape of the goggles allows you to see more above and below you and on the sides. Find the Oakley Flight Deck goggles HERE.

Smartbuyglasses have some great deals going on – so don’t miss out – be sure to check out the whole collection and shop a pair of ski goggles for yourself this season!

The giveaway winner will be chosen automatically by the program that I’ve decided to use on December 20th. You’ll have a lot of different options that will give you more entries and you can also enter daily to up your chances on winning. Good luck to everyone ♥

My Life Behind The Lens | Depression & Anxiety Talk


Hello World ♥ This post is something totally different from what I usually talks about on my blog, but it has become an important subject for me and probably for a lot of people around the world. Mental illnesses has always been something people don’t share. Don’t talk about. And don’t want anyone to know about. For me that is wrong and luckily more people has started to be open about what they’re suffering from or what they’re going through, but not enough. There’s over 6 billion people in this world – and I bet there’s more people who suffers that don’t tell anyone about it – before it’s too late. Therefor this has became an important case for me and something I want to work for and speak up about.

I’ve suffered from depression and eating disorder since I was a teenager and I got out of it. Recently, or for the past year or so – mental illness caught up with me again. This time it was anxiety knocking on the door. I let it in. I let it take over my life. I’ve had hundreds of sleepless nights and panic attack. My anxiety turned into something I hated. Something I tried to control – so bad – that it took over every single part of me. And in the end – depression came as well – as a cause to all my anxiety. I didn’t speak about it nor told anyone how I felt and how bad it had gotten, so I therefor have decided to share everything with you guys. It helps and hopefully it will help one of you – if you’re suffering from mental illnesses as well – to know that you’re not alone. We’re not alone. Everyone goes to something in their life – it just depends on how you react to it and if you let it take over your life.

One thing that has really made me open my eyes – is that I used to compare myself with everyone and everything. My OCD wanted me to be perfect in every single thing that I did and every single word I spoke. It was hard. It took all my energy and I was left tired, exhausted and without any light in the tunnel. So this video is for all of us – never compare yourself to someone’s “perfect edition” social media page. That is only the best version of their life. We have no idea of what they’re going through or what they have to deal with in their private life. Everyone can look perfectly happy on social media. Therefor I’ve decided to bring you guys with me for a week in my life – behind the lens. Behind social media. Behind youtube. This is my real life – the un-edited version of my so called life:

[embedyt] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_I3_lpQGtG4%5B/embedyt%5D



Please share this post or video if you’re going through anything similar or if you know someone who should watch this. Mental illnesses can really mess with someone’s life. Even if we know it will get better – at this point it doesn’t feel like it. If I can help one person – to not feel alone. To not feel like they’ve got nobody to talk about. It will all be worth it. I also have two other real talk videos up on my youtube channel – so be sure to check them out if you’re interested. Have a lovely day  – and never compare! ♥

Massive Fall Fashion Try-On Haul


Happy Monday ♥ So are you guys ready for a little fall inspo? I’ve been walking around looking for the perfect fall pieces to have in my wardrobe now that it starts to get a little bit colder – and I managed to find a lot of cool and chic clothing that totally fits my “fall” style. As I’ve said probably one hundred and two times before – fall is my favorite season when it comes to style and clothing. Just by walking around in some stores you can see the differens – especially the color range – I AM IN LOVE! Everything gets a little bit more edgier and my style totally changes from sweet to bold. I’ve been longing to play around with burnt orange, deep burgundy and just a lot of fall colors that are everywhere this season.

Of course I also picked up some black and white pieces as well (or actually a lot) since those are my faves to wear. All the items from my haul will be linked down below (not sponsored) and if something is sold out – try looking at different online stores since I just checked the Norwegian ones or in a store near you!

Warm & Rosy Fall Make-Up Tutorial


Happy Thursday ♥ I hope your week is going great so far! Can you believe it’s already November? This year has just gone by way too fast! So I’m about to sit down and film another “Real Talk” video about where I’ve been lately, because there has been happening A LOT. I’m also going to talk about my generalized anxiety – and I’m even sharing some tips and tricks on how to live with it. I’m excited and nervous at the same time, because it’s not something I’m used to talk about a lot, but I feel like now’s the time to share and speak up about it – and if that will help just one person – it will all be worth it!

Anyways.. Let’s jump over to something more make-up related and probably the reason why you’re here – like this look that I created for fall using the Morphe Brushes palettes in the shade 35O Matte and 35O Shimmery. YES – I needed to grab both of them since I just couldn’t decided on which one to get – and they’re amazing. If you’re looking for a palette to create any fall look or evening look these are the palettes to get – and the only ones you’ll need!! I’m obsessed and the colors are beautiful and pigmented. They blend like a dream.. And I don’t have enough words to describe how much I really love these two palettes together. A must-have in my opinion ♥

[embedyt] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14L2lZmIKWg%5B/embedyt%5D

Like I’ve said before – fall has to be my favorite season when it comes to make-up and fashion. I feel like my style changes with the seasons and for fall I’m all about those warm eyeshadows, bold lips and edgy fashion. It’s funny how I can wear cute dresses all summer long, but for fall I turn to faux leather pants, gloves and a whole different world of styles, but I love it! If you haven’t subscribe to my channel on youtube you’ve probably not seen my “Massive Fall Fashion Try-On Haul” either – but I’ll make a blogpost about it tomorrow so be sure to stay tuned.

Crazy Contact Lenses For Halloween

For many people “Halloween” brings back dear memories, like walking around doing the so called “trick-or-treat” – or what about scary sounds, windows and gardens decorated with spiderweb, skeletons and loads of other horror decorations. We can trace the festival’s roots back to a Celtic tradition, but over the years halloween has become an important day for the Christians culture worldwide. This is definitely a short period were no one seems to be complaining about the amount of pumpkin they’ll have, because all the piles of candy makes it worth their while.

No matter what plans you’ve got for halloween this year – one thing is certain: you need to dress to impress and bring out your A-game. You can sneak-peak on your favorite celebrities and their costumes to get lots of inspiration. Each and every year the rich and famous tries to outdo each other with the use of crazy and sometimes shocking outfits.

bilde1 bilde2

As you’ll see most of them are using a secret weapon – contacts lenses – both to get the complete finish to their costumes or to add a little shocking effect onto their look. Contact lenses can be an easy and effective way to make your look a lot more scarier – and is a must for this or next years halloween party. Smartbuyglasses is an online site with a huge variety of crazy-looking contacts where you can find all from very gore to odd and special lenses. Down below I’ve picked out some of both mine and their favorite ones – all depending on which style you’re looking for.

bilde3Glow can be found here – and will prepare you for the centre of attention. These are glowing white contact lenses which becomes alive when you turn the lights off. You will be lighting up the dance floor with a little bit more than just your moves.


Blackhole Sun can be found here – and be sure to check that Soundsgarden is on your party’s playlist when you take these ones on. Your friends will be hypnotized by the burning holes that has taken over your eyes and you’ll even get an extra bonus on a dark and stormy night – they’ll give you a chance to wash away the rain.


Smile lenses can be found here – now everyone can get a smile in their eyes with these Smiley contact lenses. Anywhere you go – you’ll be met with a huge smile, while you’re giving a least two back! The third smile which comes from your month are of course optional – but recommended.


Cross Eyed are totally fun and can be found here – even if they’re not helping when it comes to your sight, you’re now able to trick people into thinking you can see everywhere with these cross eyed contact lenses. At least you’ll give people a headache while they’re trying to figure out which way you’re looking.


Black Titan has to be my favorite this year and you can find them here. These lenses are not actually very funny, but on the other hand more nerve wracking. Your friends will not know how to react when they’ll see your eyes like two big black, drowning pupils. If you’re going to dress up like something immortal or infected – these are definitely the contacts to get!


Voldemort lenses can be found here – these will kick out any wizard or witch this halloween season. If the children starts to wrinkle their forehead when you pass them by, you know you’ve done something right! These are also perfect for any zombie look or any other deadly or creepy costume look.


The Lunatic lenses are also one of my top favorites for the halloween season – and can be found here. These contact lenses will make your “confused-serial-killer” costume very convincing and will definitely bring out some chills. Also perfect for other looks just to add a finish and make the whole costume a little more gore looking.

No matter what you choose to do for this halloween season I’m sure it will be awesome. Halloween is all about fun and games – and if you’re having some trouble a long the way when it comes to your make-up, lenses or costume – just remember that it all takes a little practice to make it perfect. Just have fun and enjoy the weekend! I also want to wish you a happy halloween on the behalf of Smartbuyglasses – who was kind enough to contact me and give me the opportunity to share some contact lens information with you guys .

*WARNING!* Remember that your eyes are very valuable. Decorative contact lenes sure can look great and they are fun for halloween or other occasions when it comes to costumes and styles, but you should be extremely careful while using them. Contact lenses are of course safe to wear and they are used by people every single day. For those who are not used to wearing contact lenses can it be dangerous if used wrong. You can get eye infections and other serious conditions if you are not taking necessary precautions. Be sure to speak with an eye doctor or similar before using eye contacts since it is strongly recommended to have a prescription. 



Happy Thursday ♥ My first halloween tutorial using special effects make-up is now LIVE on my youtube channel and I therefore wanted to share it with you as well – if you’re not following me on youtube you definitely should! I’m so pleased with how this turned out and I’m already pumped to do another one next week – yay! ♥


So who’s EXCITED for halloween? I know I am. I love to do sfx make-up and to play around with shadows and products I don’t usually use on a daily basis – so for me it could be halloween once a month – that would be amazing! ♥ I spent a lot of time working on this video and I really hope you’ll get inspired and creative for your look. This tutorial contains two different looks you can do by themselves or do the both as I did in this tutorial. It’s fun and it’s pretty easy to re-create even if you’re not a pro. It’s all about having fun doing it and creating halloween looks. If you do enjoy it – please leave a comment down below or visit my youtube channel which is linked at the bottom to give it a like and maybe a share?! That would mean the world to me!

Back To School | Fall Try-On Clothing Haul


Happy Weekend! How’s your Saturday going? ♥ I’m about to sit down and film two new videos – yay! I finally get to test out my new canon 70d which I’m so incredible excited about! If you’re subscribed to my youtube channel you’ve probably seen this video already, since this blogpost was supposed to go up last weekend, but life got in the way as usual. These first weeks of school has been crazy. There’s a three chapters test coming up this next week and we’ve already had a huge test and a paper due – which has made me fall of the wagon when it comes to blogging cuz I’m such a perfectionist and I need those A+’s.

And who’s excited for fall? I know I am and therefore I went shopping for a few fall appropriate clothing items and accessories while I was in Denmark and Sweden. I got so many cute pieces and I can’t wait to rock them in fall.

The Jaclyn Hill Ride Or Die Make-Up TAG


Happy Weekend ♥ I really hope your Saturday has been going great so far! I had to stay home this weekend since I’ve gotten this huge inflammation in both my neck and shoulder – and just to top it all – I also have loads of pressure in my ears which hurts soooo bad! It literally feels like my head is going to explode. So I went to the doctor and he made me a four-step routine consisting of heat, pills, creams and a spray that I need to do three times a day. Yay! So I had to cancel my plans and just stay home with my books. Sounds exciting right? The good thing about it is that now I’ve got plenty of time to study! Haha..

But over to what this post is about: The Jaclyn Hill Ride Or Die Make-up Tag! So if you don’t know who Jaclyn Hill is – you should just stop reading and search for her name on youtube. She’s an amazing make-up artist with the best tutorials on youtube in my opinion. She’s so inspiring and creative – she came up with the idea and created this tag and I LOVE IT! Who doesn’t want to know everyone’s holy grail products, right? I guess everyone who’s into make-up and beauty. So the instant I saw her version I knew I had to sit down and film this as well and I started to plan out and find my “ride or die” products. HERE THEY ARE:

Huge Sephora Haul | Denmark/Sweden Edition ✈


Hello Beauties! ♥ Hope your weekend has been treating you well. Today school has officially started which means that I need to hurry back into my daily routines which I’ve lost track off this summer – but over to something a little more exciting and what this blogpost is really about ⇒ new and exciting make-up products ♥

So if you’re following me on snapchat/instagram or my youtube channel you’ve probably seen that I spent some of my holiday in Denmark and Sweden last month. So since we don’t have Sephora or any other exciting make-up stores over here I always plan out a trip to these kinds of stores when I’m out and about. I actually went to Sephora only to stock up on some few NARS products since they don’t carry the brand here in Norway – but ended up leaving with a huge paper bag filled with products and a wallet that only contained dust. SO ME!

In this beauty haul there’s also some drugstore products and some items from my favorite online make-up store Makeup Mekka. I decided to add them in this since they’re all new products added to my collection. I also picked up a lot of clothing items on my holiday – and I therefore had to divide all the items into two different hauls – one beauty and one fashion haul – so be sure to keep your eyes out for the fall fashion haul that will be up soon! ♥ If you’re not subscribed to my youtube channel and want to stay ahead and get notifications when I upload a new video, see my travel vlogs from my vacation ot other hauls that I’ve done – you can just click HERE and it will take you directly to my channel.

Sultry Summer Glow | Perfect Burgundy Evening Look


Happy Weekend, Lovebugs ♥ So I recently filmed one of my most used go-to evening looks for my youtube channel and since the weekend’s here I thought the timing was perfect to share it with you if you still haven’t had a chance to watch it. This look is gorgeous and the perfect evening look in my opinion – especially for green eyes like I have myself. I’ve been obsessed with everything burgundy lately and when I played around with these colors I knew this look would become a fave.

The shadows that I use in this tutorial are all from Coastal Scents Cosmetic and I highly recommend checking these pots out any day. They’re creamy, pigmented and so easy to work with and the price… Ridiculously 1.95 U.S each. What a steal! These has became my go-to shadows and I’m always checking their store for more colors.

Teal Blue & Coral Make-Up For Summer | Tutorial


Happy Monday ♥ I hope you all are enjoying your monday so far. It has been a while since a did a bold summer look so I decided to play around with some blue colours for this tutorial. If you’ve been following me for a while you know my big obsession with flower crowns and headbands for summer – and of course I had to add my newest beauty to this look. It actually reminds me a lot of the snapchat filter I tend to use – do you agree? The flower crown is from H&M’s ♥ Coachella Collection and if you still haven’t gotten around to check out the collection I really recommend you to do – because it’s BOMB!


So this look is perfect for almost every summer occasion. It’s bold, yet romantic and I’m loving how it turned out. I chose to go with a nude lip since that has been my favorite lip combo for both spring and summer instead of a bold pink or red lip – but you can of course play around with different options and go for what you desire.

Easy & Natural Summer Make-Up | Full Face Of First Impressions


Morning, loves ♥ How’s life? So since I’ve been traveling a lot lately – up and down from the mountain – I’ve been a little behind with my blogposts. If you’ve been following me for a while you’ve probably seen some beauty hauls recently, and since I’ve been collecting a lot of new and exciting products that I still haven’t gotten a chance to try out – I decided to create a quick and easy summer look using some of my new beauties.

By doing this I found some new favorites that I’m loving – and I’m especially impressed by the mascara from Makeup Mekka. This is more like a everyday look and I’m loving how it turned out. Usually I do more bold looks with a smokey eye and lashes – so this time I wanted to go for more like a natural and sweet look.

Huge Collective Beauty Haul


Hi loves ♥ Summer has finally arrived, or at least it felt like it last week. This week.. Not so much! It’s pouring down outside and it feel a lot more like we skipped summer for fall. So about a couple of weeks ago I got a little carried away and bought some new and exciting beauty products for the warmer months to keep my glam on. All of these products are new beauties that I’ve never tried before, and who doesn’t love to get some new ones in their collection? I know I do!

I’m excited to try these out and hopefully I’ll love them all. I’ve also filmed a “FULL FACE OF FIRST IMPRESSIONS” that I’ll post on my blog by tomorrow using some of these beauties.

How To Cope With Depression, Anxiety & Panic Attacks


Evening, lovebugs ♥ I recently shared a very personal story on my youtube channel – that I also wanted to share on my blog because of the subjects in this video. I haven’t always been that happy girl. I’ve been dealing with a lot of mental problems and issues regarding my looks and body for way too many years of my life. It’s a very sad and destructive thing – and I know that I’m not the only one who has been and/or are dealing with these problems at this exactly moment – which for me makes me wanna share my story and open up! I know how HARD it can be to speak about it. It hurts. So Bad. I’ve been there myself – and I therefore hope that if you’re reading this or if you know someone who’s suffering – that this can be a little helpful.

[embedplusvideo height=”401″ width=”660″ editlink=”http://bit.ly/22mEMuZ” standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/4_iWN72rDPs?fs=1&vq=hd720″ vars=”ytid=4_iWN72rDPs&width=660&height=401&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=1&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=&notes=” id=”ep4203″ /]


Isn’t it weird how sometimes one little thing can change your life forever? That one simple decision can make a whole new story. One word. One choice. One experience. It’s the moment when you know that whatever happens next – nothing will ever be exactly the same again. There will be times when you wish you could go back to how things used to be, but you just can’t because things have changed too much.

I’ve just realized how much has changed in my life. There are moments I’ll never get back. Memories I’ll remember forever. Things I wish I could delete and even things I don’t remember. In just one whole year I’ve both gain and lost a lot of friendship, and some of the people who said; “I’ll always be here for you”, ended up leaving. People really do change – I guess this is just how life works.

There’ll be times where we’ll have to make decisions. Some big, but some might be quite small – but what you choose to do can define and change your life – for good. So what if we make the wrong choice? Will there be possibilities to undo that simple mistake? Everyday we make choices and we learn from it – nobody can go through life without facing regret. Some of us may regret a lot of the things we did in the past – but we somehow learn to deal with it. And some of us regret regretting in the first place.

You could have gone in a totally different direction – but you chose to follow your gut – so in the end – maybe it was right after all? Or was it? We can loose everything in a blink of an eye. Everything we’re been working so hard on achieving. It’s possible. Even if you’ve spent your whole life building it up!

I’ve spent my entire life figuring out who I am. What I want. And the truth is that I guess I’ll never really figure it out. I can’t really seem to get my life sorted out – it can be horrible at times – but it can also be great. It’s like I’m talking a language I don’t quite understand. There are so many questions – and so little answers. Even time can be short.  I sometimes pretend that I know – that I’ve got an answer – even if I don’t have a clue. I’m young. I got so much ahead of me.

The journey is long – and we can decide to choose a whole new direction – if we want. We got the power to follow our dream – even if we later on figure out that that wasn’t it. It’s better to learn for a mistake. Try and fail – or regret. Instead of not doing it at all.

When we’re young we can do whatever we want. Wish for. Move and live wherever we dream of living. Discover the world. There are a lot of people in this wonderful world. When I’m walking around town – it’s pretty easy to feel alone. Small. Not good enough.

I don’t know anything about you. Not even if you understand. You’re reading me chapter by chapter. You’re building me up – wanting me to be better. You’re beauty inspires to a lie. If you’re a house of glass and I’m the rock – you’re still the one trying to see through me!
