Hello! How are you? This is my blog page. It means a lot for me. Hopefully you'll like it. I do all kind of stuff like DIY, make up looks, baking, traveling and lot of more! If those words make you interested than what are you waiting for?!
I had so much fun last weekend with my mom. There was a art-show all over my town in many places. Like the old house, the all big windows were painted nicely. There were also art in a bus where you had to listen to news about the weather in Iceland, I got also to know a new art in a church, I sat there and listened to the art . The whole art show was called "Because of Weather". My favourite art is the rhombus light. I fell in love with it and just want to have it in my house! There were different arts some of them where about something you needed to listen to like sounds, or see paintings and designs like the light. There were senior people who where water-painting on a paper with like blue colors (weather), that makes me happy, because people like that can't do so much, it makes me happy that they did. They had probably fun time of doing that! At the end me and my mother got some Belgian waffles at a CoffeHouse. They tasted delicious! I saw such of many new things and had great time!

Wow. I love those new palettes from Revolution. Especially the Cream Contour Palette. It's creamy, soft, smooth and easy to blend. I think that it is my new favorite contouring palette from now on. I was so ecited to try this and it maked me really surprised because it doesn't cost that much. The Blush palette is the same soft as the contour palette and works great too. It has many pink and peach colors. There are three barbie pinky colors. I think that I would stick to the darker ones.
The Eyeshadow palette is BEAUTIFUL. It has many like metallic colors and few matte colors. Those colors are perfect for smokey looks and I will probably use them most for that. They work really well and again it surprised me! Haha
Blush Palette: Revolution, Ultra Blush Palette.
Contour Palette: Revolution, Ultra Cream Contour Palette.
Eyeshadow Palette: Revolution, Ultra Eyeshadows, Flawless.
Hi there, have you heard of the play "When the Robbers Came to Cardamom Town"? Soo I'm going to act in this play! I can't wait for showing this play on stage!
This story is about three robbers that are so poor and don't have money for anything. So why shouldn't they not go to the town and rob. Casper is the oldest one, Jesper is the one who looks the best and Johnathan loves food! And especially gingerbreads. They are always fighting about who should clean the house, who should cook the food and just act like babies. They fight about this and that. But they are really lucky that they have a lion in the dirty, little house, so the police does not dare to come there!
The novel is written by a Norwegian Thorbjorn Egner. He was a famous writer and wrote stories for children like "Dyrene in Hakkebakkeskogen" (The Animals in the woods) and "Karius and Baktus". He wrote "When the Robbers Came to Cardamom town" (Folk og Roveri i Kardemommubyen) in 1955 and wanted to show the play in Iceland. He was obsessed in Iceland. Egner was so talented that he drew all the pictures in his books and wrote all the song.
The fun thing is that I am going to act one of the robbers and my two best friends are going to act the other two robbers. My brother is going to act to. He is going to act Tom and I'm really proud of him because he is just 9 years old and doesn't know his hobby yet. So I hope that he would have fun too.
We have been practicing for two weeks and we will show it on stage in easter and there around in March. I can't wait for it!

We woke up 26th morning and went to the forest in the mountain right above my house. The wether was beautiful and it was a great time to take shots! So I hope that you like these pictures!
The blue shirt that I'm wearing is from selected and the fluffy white coat from F&F. I got the necklace from my auntie as Christmas present and I have been wanting it for so long! It's a special design from Iceland and it's a raven. I love it! And than I have black earings to match. I'm using a liquid lipstick from H&M it's called Leading Lady.

When I went to Reykjavik I bought for me Blue Lagoon masks and wanted to try them. I've heard lot of good things about Blue Lagoon. The products are really good. I bought silica mud mask and algae mask. I've tried the both masks and they work really well. The silica mud mask is a deep cleanser and softens your face. The algae mask is more for dry skin like mine, it nourishes, lifts and enhances radiance your face. I got another mask set and it has three masks, the two same that I bought and a mask that they call Lava Scrub. I haven't try the Lava scrub but I'll do it sometime later. I also got a two lip balms. They work great and make your lips soft and nice. These products are all natural. I love all the products that I got! And I´ll probably buy more of things in Blue Lagoon store.

"It´s the beginning to look a lot like Christmas". This song has been stuck in my head all day! Tomorrow are Christmas and I am so exited!! On this day (23third) in all Iceland people eats skate (skata) and salt-fish or "saltfiskur". I do not like it. And the smell of the Skate is not good at all. But people say that it does taste good but doesn´t smell nice. This day in Iceland is called "Þorláksmessa". We celebrate 23. December in honour of Þorlákur Þórhallsson. He was bishop of Skáholt. He died 23. December 1193. What my family are use to do is decorate ours tree and finish all decorating and when we have done eating the fish we go and turn on the lights on the Christmas tree. While we meet our families we switch presents and put them under ours tree´s. Today I am going to meet all my family. My grandfather, grandmother, uncles and my aunties and we are going to eat skate and saltfish together. I at least eat saltfish I can´t eat skate.
I have been wrapping presents for my family and I had special style this year. I´ts one of the best things that I doo in Christmas holidays. I like to get so creative, it makes me so happy to wrap presents to the people that I love. I love the plain brown paper and used it a lot. The good thing about it is that is really cheap. I used my sea dark blue ribbon and a brown messy band. I also got a an owl stamp and I love it. My style this year was pretty basic and I pop it up with my ribbons. But my favourite presents that I made is the owl one and the basic present with the geometric wolf card. They were for my best friends!
Merry Christmas guys! I hope that you´ll have a great day!

1. Cleaning brush/sponge tip.
Having a problem with cleaning your brushes or beautyblender? Well you don't want to buy a expensive brush cleaner so use your soap! It works better than I thought!
2. Fix your clumsy mascara
If your mascara is dry or clumsy try to add eye drops in the tube. It's supposed to soften the mascara liquid. But if you don't have eye drops there is another way. Put hot water in a cup and then the mascara. Let it stay for about 5 minuets.
3. How to curl your eyelashes longer?
Take your hair dryer and hold it next to your curler. Let it blow for about 3-5 seconds. It really works!
4. Broken Lipstick, You Can Fix It!
Take your broken lipstick and a lighter. Melt the two pieces and put it together. But be careful!
5. Want your lipstick to last longer?
After you have put your lipstick on, lay a tissue on and dust a powder over it. That's it!

6. Coconut oil trick!
Did your mascara went wrong? You don't have make up remover? Use the coconut oil. It will help and it's also natural! You can also remove all your foundation to have clean face with it.

7. Draw a triangle under your eye
The shape creates a perfect shape for your face and it conceals your dark circle.

8. Right Light
Use the outside light, it's the best light that you can use. There are so many different lights and if you go there or there, it will always be another light. It's maybe more for the spotlight.
9. Broken Make Up
You don't have to throw all your expensive eye shadows or foundations any more! Take your broken make up and crush them in a small bowl. Pour in some alcohol and rub it together. After that you can put it in your make up box and wait until the alcohol dries. It can stay over night or more.
