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

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 ?
