Mini Haul

Here's a mini haul of some things i've picked up recently in stockholm and hannover, mostly makeup. i finally was able to get to MAC (there isn't one in bremerhaven) and spent way too much money. but im a beauty-ish blogger right? so it's all good. here's my goodies:


my blowdryer is kaputt and i've heard nothing but good things about this french brand, babyliss, so i figured i'd give it a shot at 20 euros! plus it comes with a diffuser attachment, which is a must for any curly-haired girl ;)




these cut out boot/sandals are PERFECT in every way and i love them. i will wear the hell out of them this spring/summer. perfect with shorts, jeans, skirts, dresses, you name it. and super comfy! they're available here in black and white so if you're interested go take a peak :)


ahh the holy grail. 
from MAC: we've got their bronzing powder in matte bronze, 
studio fix powder foundation in NC 43.5, 
face and body foundation in c6, 
lingering eyebrow pencil, 
candy yumyum lipstick 
and prep+prime highlighter in bright forecast. 

I also picked up some duo eyelash glue, 3 pairs of ardell falsh lashes (i'm wearing the third pair right now hihi),
 a highlighting concealer from artdeco in #7, 
essence viva brasil blush in sao paulo, 
isa dora lipstick in red carpet, 
and FINALLY benefits the porefessional. i have huge pores and have been dying to try this (expensive) product.

( i know the products aren't numbered but i hope you can follow the list anyway!)





what products have yall been loving lately? any recent purchases?

Anniversary

So, tomorrow is Martin and my one year anniversary. I know it's not a huge deal but most of it has been long distance and i'm really happy we've made it this far. only a couple more months until i (hopefully) move to Sweden and we can cut the distance thing out. Anyway, I got a  little package in the mail yesterday and after begging and pleading, martin said i didn't have to wait until wednesday to open it. (I'm going away tomorrow for the weekend to visit family in Hannover so we won't get to talk much). He got me one of these souvenir shirts we saw in gamla stan while I was in Stockholm that says "I <3 MYSWEDISH BOYFRIEND". and the heart is a little swedish flag. it's so tacky and cute and I love it haha. He also wrote me a letter, and it was so sweet and funny and heartfelt that I cried like a baby haha anyway, i love my swedish boyfriend and happy early anniversary boo!



(blurry so yall can't read it lmao)









Me and my handsome man on the farm a couple months ago...guess which one he is :p

Summer Daze ~~Weed be good Together!

Hey Guys,

long time no talk! Sorry I've been MIA. I feel like i'm always saying that, but i really do try my best to blog as often as I can. Unfortunately I go through long periods where I just have no desire, but we're working on that. :) Today is an absolutely gorgeous day here in Bremerhaven so I'm making a playlist to take with me on a long walk around the pond later. Here are some songs that are on it--lots of sixties influence. Perfect for summer!

Mamas and Papas - California Dreamin'

Timbre Timbre - Black Water

I hope you guys enjoy the weather wherever you are! What are you favorite summer songs??
