My first day of school and personal posts

Good things about today:

– I had my first day of my new school and it was excellent. Awesome people, amazing subject and most of all, I’m so excited about finally doing something I really have a passion for that I can’t stop blabbing about it!

– I got to see squirrels in real life! (yes, I know they’re fairly common but I haven’t ever seen one that hasn’t been on TV, so I’m way more excited than I should be)

Bad things about today:

– It’s 8.000 degrees outside. My head is dying slowly but painfully and I can’t get a grip to do anything useful or productive in any way.

– I didn’t bring my keys with me, knowing my boyfriend would be home. Boyfriend decided to go to the store while I was sitting in the bus, thinking he could make it. He couldn’t. Sweaty, overheated and needing to pee, I wasn’t amused.

I thought it would be much harder to get up early in the mornings. Even though I have a kid, my boyfriend takes him in the morning because I’ve been very tired due to my sickness so that worked best for us – he took the kid, I slept and took care of dinner and cleaning. Now I have to take two buses to get there (and two to get back, sigh – it was so much easier when I lived a 20 min. walk from my school) which means I have to get up painfully early. I’m just not a morning person and never will be, so combined with the heat and the sickness still taking it’s toll, it will be a challenge. Still, I’m so excited about this that I don’t even care about getting up early, it’s that awesome.

I’d also like to know what you think about these kind of personal posts where it’s not all just about makeup and products? I love blabbing about anything and everything but I’ve just had a phase with makeup-obsession and no freetime so it shone through in my posts. Now that I’m actually starting up again and feeling the energy return, I’m thinking a few more personal posts would be good to, yeah?

Not that I can imagine why my life would be interesting to anyone but I think most of us feel that way once in a while. At least I know I love reading people’s personal posts and I love writing about other stuff than just makeup, too, so maybe we should give it a try.

What do you think? Yay or nay for more personal posts?

I’m amazed at all of us for surviving this crazy heat. Did you know they say it’s rekordbreaking? Hottest summer in 130 years? Peachy.

I’ve done nothing productive today at all and to celebrate it we’re going to watch Psych. But before I leave you I just wanted to wish you all a happy you’re-still-alive-today day! 😀

I’m not inclined to resign to maturity!

Goodiebox July 2014 – Greenish Beauty

Another Goodiebox is here! And I know a lot of you haven’t received it yet so I’m putting the post under a cut for a little while until it’s fair to make it all readable in one go. I (hopefully) managed to put just this single post under a “read more” cut, but otherwise I’ll just change my settings until everyone has their boxes 😉

eBay Goodies – July edition

Don’t you just hate when you put someting on your eBay watch list, forget about it, and only remember it when it’s gone? (or is it just me?).

Either way, I think it’s time for another eBay favorites. This time it’s a mix of everything but all things I’d actually like to own and have on my to-buy list. Some of them are, unfortunately, way more than the 80 kr so if you do get some of this, be sure to remember that PostDanmark likes to take your money! (Seriously, 160 kr just for “handling”… come on).

Owl chair / Coca Cola Lip Smackers / Mustache Pillow
Avon Palette / Tardis Sign / Batman Duct Tape

I love all of these for different reasons but I think if I had to buy a single item right now I would go with the chair or the pillow. The chair is really good handy work and the pillow, well, look at it. It would fit SO well into my son’s bedroom!

Any of these look awesome to you?

Sorry, not sorry

It’s summer. It’s vacation. And since I only have 10 days vacation left, not counting today, I’d rather spend it with my family that taking and editing pictures for the blog, writing long posts, etc. so this is just going to be a sort of personal/I’m-melting-so-my-brain-doesn’t-function kind of post.

I’m just saying, it ain’t cool

I can, however, tell you that I’ve switched studies. No longer going to be an English major but a chef. I know it makes no sense to anyone from the outside, but I’ve always wanted to be chef – it’s just that when everyone and their mother tells you that you have to go to university, you end up believing them. Luckily my boyfriend gave me a push in the right direction so I decided to take a leap of fair and applied – and got in! So July 29th I start up and I’m SO very excited! But I’ll tell you more about that later on, as well as the dress and the brushes that I ordered on eBay a few weeks back. Oh, and how you should always lock you makeup up when you have people over, seeing as some people steal your things!

But enough about that – now I’ll go enjoy trying to think up Christmas gift wishes for my kid (who has EVERYTHING, such a first word luxury problem that I have to start in July!) and then later on we’re going to be very mature and play with a Dungeons and Dragons kind of book. You know, the one where you have to choose between different options and see if you can get out alive? Yes, that mature.
