Happy New Year!!

Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don't we might as well lay down and die
You and I

Hey everyone! it's a little soon but i figured that it's better to write it now because i will be busy later on and wouldn't be able to write it, and i really wanted to wish all of you a Happy New Year, and i hope you all have/had a great time tonight, and i hope you all are safe and having a great time with your friends, or if you are like me having an okay time with your parents and your dogs... haha

I Finished my Goodreads Challenge

Hey everyone, last year i wanted to finish 30 books and i did, so i was very excited and this year i wanted to challenge myself to read 100 books but instead i challenged myself to read 50 books and thank god that i did because i would have never finished 100 books, i was in a huge reading slump for a while, i didn't read much, just a tiny bit, and today i finished my challenge so i wanted to share it with you because i am very excited! haha,

Did you guys finish your challenges ?, did you even make a challenge for reading ? or something else ?

Books i got for Christmas

Hey everyone, i have been addicted to watching booktubers videos of what they got for Christmas, i have been actually craving it haha, i really enjoyed watching it and i wanted to do a post of the book i got for Christmas, these aren't all of them because a few months ago i got my Christmas present from my dad and i already did a haul on that, because i of course opened it early, there was no way that i had enough will power to wait until December lol.

First two books i got were from my sister that lives in Iceland and she asked me what i wanted and i gave her a list and she chose the best ones on it!
The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien - I didn't know about this book until she told me about it and i was very excited for it and i can't wait to start reading it soon.
The Shining by Stephen King - ok I told her that if she were to buy any books for me that The shining would be the book that i wanted the most out of all of them and she did get it for me, I seriously screamed when I held it in my hands, I have been wanting to read this book for a very long time now and now I can, and I have already started! haha
The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen - This book was a present from me to me, It's my first Sarah Dessen book, I am more than a half way through I do like it so far but I am not completely sure I just have to finish it! haha.

Since the books i got from my sister are in this haul i wanted to say she also made me a scarf, she asked what colour i wanted ( i picked dark blue) and she made it from me, and I love it, I will be using it a lot, i love hand made presents, i think they are just so thoughtful and just great. I appreciate everything i get and love it.

I will be putting up another haul sometimes soon, of clothes i got myself, and stuff like that.

What did you get for Christmas ?

The Fault in Our Stars Movie Poster

I know I am totally late on this but I am just so completely in love with this movie poster, it's so beautiful it makes me want to cry haha (yes i am really weird) I can't wait for the movie to come out i am so freaking excited!

But i agree with Shailene Woodley the tagline isn't something i would have picked, i mean it's ok, but i would have picked something different

What did you guys think of this movie poster ? Do you like it or do you not like it ?

Blogmas 2013

Hey everyone, i haven't had time or internet to explain why i haven't been finishing Blogmas, and i just wanted to explain myself, last month my PC started falling apart, it was really bad, and two weeks ago the screen just fell off!, it literally just fell off, there were two cords holding it together and one of them broke ( is broke the right word ?), and ever since then i haven't had much internet on my pc, just a tiny bit and it gets really slow, i could hardly even log on Facebook, and this week i realized if i go down in to the living room i have full internet for some reason ( and i am still on my broken pc but me and my mom basically super glued it together and used tape and everything, and right now it's falling apart again so i need to glue and tape it again haha, i really need a new computer. I wanted to just let anyone who followed the short Blogmas know that i didn't just give up, there were two things happening i got too busy and the computer fell apart, I didn't plan on having this explanation this long so i am going to stop right here, I hope everyone had a great Christmas and i hope you have an awesome and safe New Year

-Nena

Blogmas Day 3 - Shoe Haul

Hey everyone!, I hope you're having a nice day!, today is the 3rd day of Vlogmas and i thought i would do a shoe haul, i bought a lot of shoes since this summer that i actually never showed, and i really wanted to do a haul, I really need to stop buying shoes, but they are so cute i can't help myself, especially when they are on sale, i basically have to buy something every time a sale is going on, even if i don't need any of it haha.
I bought all of these shoes while i was in Croatia except for the Black boots.

These boots that i am absolutely in love with i got here in Norway in i think the shop is called      Bagorama/Skoringen, they were on sale i don't remember how much the sale was, but if you know   me every time there is a sale i HAVE to get something, i just have to haha, it's a sickness really haha.
























Don't mind my flowery socks haha, i just put on two different socks because they were the only ones, it's laundry day, i really need to wash all my clothes, i have a huge pile, but somehow i always put it off, anyway on to the shoes, I got these in Croatia in a shoe store called Graceland i think, it says Graceland inside the shoes so i am going with Graceland, I'm sorry i won't know where i got most of these shoes because i got them this summer so i can't remember any of the names of the stores.

These i got mainly because they were on sale, They are Jessica Simpson Wedges, the moment i was there i was so in love with these shoes, but a couple of days later i kind of regretted it a little, I am still not sure if I will keep them or not, i mean i do kind of like them but i feel like they are too tall for me (if that makes sense haha).


Oh wait i forgot that i got these in Norway too in Eurosko, it was in January i think or somewhere around that time, i can be really forgetful i am sorry haha. Basically i got these because they were on sale and every time i walk in them my legs hurt like fudge, but they are so pretty! haha, sometimes i hate being a girl who loves shoes...


These are oh my so pretty and were on a big sale in New Yorker(It's a store i used to shop at all the time, but recently i feel like their clothes aren't as good as they used to be or is it just me growing up), i was surprised by the price, i immediately grabbed them, tried them on and wouldn't let them go after that because i was scared someone might take them from me... I am weird like that, has it ever happened to you ?, you see something you love but there is only one of it left and when you get it you kind of don't even want to let go of it for a second because you think someone might take it from you ? haha or is it just me ?.

Blogmas Day 2 - Favourite Lip Products

Hey everyone, i haven't done a post about makeup in a while and I've been loving so many lipsticks and two lip glosses lately that i wanted to share them with you!, and p.s i feel like this post should be turned into a drinking game, drink every time i say Favourite haha!.



Isa Dora Mini lipstick in 47 summer red - I really love this shade of red, It's not my favourite but i wear it every time i want a more bolder red colour.
Loréal Paris Caresse in 102 Romy, This is one of my favourite lipstick/gloss i love the texture, the colour, the fact that it stays on for a long time, and that it's not sticky, it's just perfect, i wish they came out with much more shades!.
Essence Stay matt lip cream (i lost the tag thing that was on it so i don't know which shade this is, sorry), i wore this one a lot over the summer and i have only one complaint and it's that it gets off really easily and gets in your teeth, but i really loved wearing it, it looks really pretty, i might change my mind later on though haha.
Maybelline Colour Sensational lipstick in 550 Cherry Candy - This is my favourite red lipstick, it's not too dark, and if you just started wearing red on your lips or are too scared to wear a darker colour this is perfect for you, this lipstick got me more confident in wearing more darker or brighter colours.
Maybelline Colour Whisper in 530 who wore it Redder - Don't believe the name, it's actually not a red shade, it's a soft/medium shade of pink, and this is another one i wore a lot this summer, i think i wore this one almost every day, it is perfect for summer (but just because it's winter it doesn't mean you can't wear pink shades, wear anything you want whenever you want, whatever you like, doesn't matter if others don't like it, the most important thing is that you like it and want to wear it)
Dior Addict Lipstick in 343 Miss Dior - Out of all of these lipsticks this is the one i wear the most, it is my favourite nude shade, and the only nude colour i actually like on me, all the others i have tried look terribly awful on me.
Essence Lipstick in 03 Dare to Wear - I recently got this one, my mom got it for me when when went to Croatia for a quick trip, and i have been loving it a lot lately, i haven't worn it all the time but i am slowly reaching out to this one more than the others.
Isa Dora Mini Lipstick in 154 Rosette - I love to pair this one up with the Loréal Caresse one, it is one of my favourite combos right now, it looks really pretty together.
Dior Addict Lipstick in 753 Fashion - The last one is another i got recently and i lost it, it made me really mad because it was my favourite one, It is honestly the best shade, It still hasn't disappointed me, but i can't say it's my favourite right now since i basically just found it again today, it was in my purse haha, and i haven't worn it since this summer.

Below is a picture of the shades on my hand, it is the same row as in the other picture and the text:

Not the most attractive picture of my hand, i was sleeping and apparently i fell asleep on my hand
and it wrinkled up or something, but since it is winter it get's pretty dark here in Norway really early, i had to take the picture then, because i really wanted to do this post today.

What are your favourite lip products right now ?

NOTD

I put this nail polish on 3 days ago and it hasn't even chipped at all, every time i wear this nail polish it never fails to surprise me, I've heard a lot of people say that just because something is high end it doesn't mean it's better and while i do agree with that, it doesn't mean that it sucks either, because this nail polish is currently the best one i have, and it stays on longer than any other that i have (and i have Essie, O.P.I... and all that). I had to use a filter because the regular picture didn't show the nail polish well because it was too dark, but also the nail polish is darker than it is on this picture.

Wearing: Dior Vernis in 706 - Bronze Libertine

Christmas Party Outfit Ideas (2)

Hey guys, I really enjoyed doing my last Christmas Party Ideas post so i decided to make another one!, hopefully you guys will like it!

First one is:
Christmas Party 3
Dress - Dorothy Perkins - I saw this dress and i thought it was really cute, i always wanted a dress with a peter pan collar so i decided to make an outfit with this dress.
Tights - Modcloth.com - I really think that these burgundy tights would look cute with this dress, i saw a girl wear it like this once and i just loved it!.
Boots - Zappos.com - I am not sure about these boots for this outfit, i like them one second and the other I'm like meh.., and in the end i decided to go with them because i think they are cute.
Purse - Debenhams - I just love this purse it is so cute and i think it would look lovely with this dress.
Watch - Kate Spade - Look how cut this sparkly watch is!, I am so in love with it! I decided to put it in here to just you know give a little sparkle haha.
Black studs - JcPenney - I just decided to go with black simple studs after a long time of thinking which earrings i would wear if i could wear this outfit.
Makeup: My favourite look to wear is the nude eye or gold eyeshadow and Red lips, you can never go wrong with that look!.
Hair: I wanted to have the hair up with this look because i think it would look cuter.

Second one: For someone who doesn't really enjoy wearing dresses
Christmas party 4

Sweater - Missrebel.co.uk - If any one wears this sweater hopefully your co workers or friends will understand what this sweater is all about and won't get offended! haha, I just love this Christmas sweater i want to buy it, and when i saw it i just had to make a look with it
Pants - Topshop - I would wear either these black pants or darker blue ones with this sweater, i wouldn't wear tights because i feel like pants would be much better.
Boots - Colehaan.com - These boots are kind of expensive, but i really like the look of them, and if you guys have been following me and reading my posts i have been wanting Brown riding boots for a while now, and these are really cute and i think they would look cute with this outfit.. i might be wrong though haha, It's always different online than in real life.
Purse - Dailylook -  I wasn't sure what kind of purse i would wear with this outfit ( maybe i would just skip the purse in general but i decided to put this purse in because i really like it, but it can always be skipped)
Watch and Bracelets - Dorothy Perkins - I have been really loving watched lately and i thought that this combo would look really cute with this outfit.
Hat - Backcountry.com - The hat can always be skipped of course, but if it's cold where you are like it is where i am then i would definitely recommend a hat ( and a coat of course, i don't know why i didn't put a coat in these two looks haha)
Makeup - With this look i thought the makeup look would look better more simple and girly, no red lipstick, just a peachy pink lip gloss
Hair - I love seeing girls wear these big sweaters and having their hair in a side braid, and i really liked this look on Taylor Swift and decided to put it with this look.

Top Ten Tuesday (5)

As some of you know this is a meme that i sometimes join when i like the topic and this week i really liked the topic so i decided to post!

Top 10 books you would recommend to X person ( and for me that is friends, just any friend)


1. The Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead

Why: When i first found these series (it was when only 3 books were out), I read those three books in one day and one night, i just couldn't stop reading, i literally finished an hour before i had to wake up to go to school, i was so tired but so excited, and when i looked when the next book was going to come out, it said in a year, so i was pretty bummed!, and now i have all the books!, so i can read them over and over again, and i definitely would, because this series is that good.







2. The Fault in our Stars by John Green

Why: This is just a book that everyone has to read, it is that good, i cried and laughed and cried and laughed, it was an emotional rollercoaster... in a good way haha, i was hesitant in reading this book at first because i was spoiled, some idiot told me the ending, and i was literally like NOOOOOOOO, ugh, but in the end i decided to read it anyway and thankfully i did because it was amazing.








3. The Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella

Why: These books had my laughing my ass off a lot, they are so funny and witty and sad at some times, and so good and addicting, when you finish one book you immediately want to read the next one and then next one and on and on...












4. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

Why: I just thought this was a nice quirky book that i really enjoyed and i feel like my friends would enjoy it too, i already had one of my friends buy it and read it and she loved it too, so score! haha.










5. The Dark Hunter Series by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Why: There are a lot of reasons why i would recommend this one!, this series is more for adults though, it does have sexual content in it,  but even if you aren't comfortable with sex in books you could skip those parts because i love the story lines too, even thought there are like 30 books or more, i am definitely planning on reading all of them because they are just addicting, and every book is a different couple ( but couples from previous books will show up in future books too just not as main characters).







6. Can you keep a Secret by Sophie Kinsella

Why: This was such a cute book, i loved the storyline and the characters and everything, i might be a little biased though because i just love all of Sophie Kinsella's books and i do feel like everyone can enjoy them ( well of course not everyone since a lot of people like different genre's, but a lot of people would definitely love her books).








7. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Why: I don't think i even need to say why, i mean if you have read this book and loved it like i did you would definitely know why i would recommend it!












8. Divergent by Veronica Roth

Why: It is definitely my favourite dystopian book along with The Hunger Games (but practically everyone has read The hunger games so i wouldn't really need to recommend it haha).











9. The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella

Why: I just love Sophie Kinsella haha, i mean if i love something i should definitely share it with my friends so that they can love it ( or god forbid.. hate it haha) with me!. also a warning.. the next book is by Sophie Kinsella too haha..











10. Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

Why: Well it is so different from any other book i have read, and i think this is my first ghost book haha, but it is hilarious, witty and so much fun, it is definitely a must read!, go buy this book now!, you won't regret it! ( unless you don't like it... then you might regret it... haha), but i didn't regret buying it, it was so good!.

Blogmas 2013

*picture taken by me*

Hey everyone, I hope you all had a great November so far, I just wanted to talk about the fact that in December (starting on the 1st of December of course), I will be blogging every day until January 1st, I thought this would be a fun thing to do since I had such a fun time blogging every day in October, There will be some tags, reviews, favourites and stuff like that, I have already written down a list of posts I want to do and I already started writing some of them, hopefully you guys will like it and maybe join me doing Blogmas (people on Youtube do Vlogmas so I just changed the name to Blogmas, so it's not something I just came up with haha).

Will you do Blogmas or are you doing something else for December ?

I am not completely sure about this outfit, one second i love it and the other i am not sure that it would fit well together, but i just love that jacket!.

Dress - Chiarafashion
Boots - same as before, i just love these boots
Jacket - Warehouse
Stockings - Nordstrom
Earrings - Betsey Johnson
Necklace - Handpicked
Lipstick - M.A.C, I am not sure which shade this is, but any dark red lipstick would do

1. Drugstore or high end nail polish ?
Hmm, i really like both but sometimes i feel like drug store nail polish is better than high end, I do own some high end nail polishes that i just adore, but also drugstore ones... this is kind of a hard question to answer haha... I think i will choose drugstore nail polishes, unless Isa Dora and Essie nail polishes are considered high end then i choose high end because i am not sure if they are considered as high end or nor.

2. Favourite Mascara ?
i have two favourite mascaras and they are: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Very Black, and Victoria Secret Voluptuous Volume Waterproof Mascara

3. Holy grail under eye concealer
Sadly i don't have one, i mean i have used concealers but I've never been like oh my god this concealer is amazing, i still need to find a great concealer, if you have any suggestions please leave a comment ( i have normal to dry skin)

4. If you had to wear a full face of one brand what would it be ?
Hmm i guess from drugstore makeup: Maybelline or L'oréal High end: Chanel or Clinique

5. Coffee or Tea ?
Right now Coffee, but i change my mind a lot sometimes i can't live without coffee and other times i just can't stop drinking tea, it changes a lot for me haha.

6. Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts
since sadly i have never tried Dunkin Donuts i have to say Starbucks (even though I've only tried it once since they don't have a Starbucks here where i live(shocking i know haha)

7. How long have you been blogging ?, Why did you start ?
I have been blogging now on and off for over three years, i started because i loved reading other blogs and i thought it would be fun to have my own blog and write about stuff i wanted to, and have people read my opinions and stuff like that.

8. Apple Computer or other ?
I have a Red/Pink Samsung PC and i am in love with it even if it did break a little but still, i don't really like apple products the only reason why i would buy an apple computer is because of this Batman computer sticker thing that you can put on and it looks so cool over the apple logo

9. Do you check prices before buying makeup products
I definitely do since well i don't have a great job where i get payed a lot i of course check the prices, even if i did get a lot of money i would still check the prices because some things can be over priced haha.

10. Favourite Youtubers or/and bloggers ?
My Favourite Youtubers are: Anna Akana ( comedian) Fleur Deforce (beauty guru), Little Book Owl (book tuber), Polandbananas20 ( booktuber), and Readables (book tuber), in blogging i currently love Cappuchino and Fashion, A hint of Sparkle, Makeup Spell, Fleur Deforce, and Life of a Sweetaholic, these are the ones that i have been following for a long time, i also have new favourites but i decided to just pick the ones that have been my favourites for a while.

I am definitely looking forward to my books arriving from the book depository haha... sad life i know, currently one book has arrived and that is The Princess Bride by William Goldman.

I nominate:
Blogger's Bookshelf
Wishing for Chanel
The four eyed cat reviews

Unfortunately i cannot nominate 11 because most of the people i follow have more than 200 followers, i usually follow back but most all of them have over 200 followers :/, These three are blogs that i really have been liking lately and the only ones that have under 200 followers and i was surprised because i really like their blogs and they deserve more followers.

My questions are:
1.What is your go to lipstick ?
2.If you could only read one book genre for the rest of your life which genre would you choose ?

The Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella

Series: Shopaholic series
Author: Sophie Kinsella
Genre: Romance, Humour, Chick lit
Books in series: The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic, Shopaholic Abroad, Shopaholic Ties the Knot, Shopaholic and Sister, Shopaholic and Baby, and lastly Mini Shopaholic.

Plot from first book: On the face of it, Rebecca Bloomwood has it all. Confident, single and happily living in des-res Fulham with her best friend Suze, she's a financial journalist who spends her days writing articles advising other people on the importance of budgeting and prudent investing. Her private life is a different story though; Rebecca manages her own finances in a way that would make most of her readers' hair curl--for Rebecca is a woman on a mission--she just can't stop spending.
  
  
Review: There are six books, The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic, Shopaholic Takes Manhattan, Shopaholic Ties the Knot, Shopaholic and Sister, Shopaholic and Baby, and last one is Mini Shopaholic.

I enjoyed this series quite a lot, I thought it was hilarious, fun, and just a very light read, sometimes I read these heavy books where you really need to think, and coming back to books like these which are light and funny is just great, but there were parts in some books where Rebecca annoyed me a little, it wasn't too bad though, she definitely made up for it. If you are looking for a light and fun read I would definitely recommend this series, I laughed non stop, but in Shopaholic and Baby I teared up quite a lot, if you read it you will know why, or maybe I am just a weirdo who cries at everything haha.

Stars: I give this series 4.5 stars out of 5, I definitely recommend it, even if you are not really into this kind of books you might end up liking it, or maybe Rebecca will just annoy you (because I've seen that she annoyed some people haha), i mean she did annoy me in a few parts but like i said before she totally makes up for it.
