Trick or Treat?

Halloween has come and gone and now I almost feel sad that it went by so fast! I just love it and the autumn vibe that is surrounding october. The red, yellow and brown leaves, the spiced apple candles, the wind blowing, and HALLOWEEN!… Ahhh it’s just the best.

I really love halloween… All the craziness and excitement  about what to wear and what kind of costume would be good and how to do your makeup so it can look good and a bit scary! I  personally see halloween as a time where you should dress up as something scary, of course I dont want to look crazy scary and scare myself. But I like it to be something that is concidered scary.

As last year I was going to a halloween party with some friends and of course I was doing it again this year! Last year I was dressed up as the scary little doll in the Saw movies! You know, the creepy little thing with the huge head and red circles on it’s cheeks and the little bike. I couldn’t find a bike but I think it was cool anyways!
This year I went old school and dressed up as a vampire and I did not regret it one bit! I got a few of “You are not gonna bite me, are you?” -comments and of course I got a little sassy and answered that their blod wasn’t good enough for me to drink. You can never get too sassy as a vampire!

As you can see I went for a long black dress, simple black high heels, black nailpolish, darkred contact lenses, of course a red lip. The makeup was kind of a dark smokey eye but not really too much because I wanted the eyeliner to come through and I wanted the red lip to be in focus with the “blood” dripping from the corner of the mouth. I also make bitemarks on my neck, which cannot be seen, but I just used a little black and red makeup and blended it in tiny circles to create the bitemarks. I thought about getting myself some vampire teeth, but I knew that I would throw them away after 2-3 minutes, so I just didn’t even wanted to try.
My friend was going as a broken doll. And you can see how her face is breaking. It was actually very last minute costume for her, because she was thinking of going as something else but changed her mind a couple of hours before the party! But I think is turned out good!

Well, halloween is officially  over for this year, but I am not letting my spiced apple body creams and baked apple candles go anywhere for now, at least! I am still enjoying it too much!
I hope you all had an amazing halloween with a lot of happiness, laughter, good friends and family and not to forget scary moments!

 

Goodiebox Treat By Magasin

October has come and with that my new Goodiebox! I never thought that I would be so happy with getting makeup things like I am with this thing called Goodiebox!
I have never been the biggest “makeup”-girl. I always use minimal makeup and I think that it’s because I am so too lazy to go out and try to find some makeup that I would like and try things and see if they are good or not.
But I can tell that I am already obsessed with Goodiebox and I have only recieved two boxes so far!

I am a fan of The Body Shop so I really love that I got a limited edition of this little autumn inspired body butter! And I am really looking forward to see if the eyelash serum from Revitalash Adanced is going to do something good for my eyelashed. I heard that it really workes, so I am very excited to see the results myself!

I am very happy with this months box and I can say that I am using last box’s products and I am satisfied! So it was a good idea to begin this little experiment!

I can say that I am looking forward to next month and that I am gettign very good products and enjoying them so far!

A Little Work-Trip

I have been so lucky to go to Copenhagen because of my job and I had so much fun!
We had something called a kick-off where we try out new things from a brand we will promote, get to know new people, learn new things and of course, not to forget, have a lot of fun!

I was in Copenhagen from tuesday until thursday and it wa smy first kick-off and even though it was hard and long days, it really was amazing and fun to try.
Copenhagen is an amazing city and I would have loved to see it more than I did these days. I was very busy and did not get any freetime to go see the city and the things it has to offer. But I have decided that I really wanna go there again soon. Like on a mini vacation or a weekend.

And I tried to travel by train by myself for the first time. I know that is so stupid that I never did that before. I have tried to travel by train before but never by myself, but I discovered that I actually enjoy it a lot! So of course I had to take my phon out and take a little sneaky picture of the trip.
14805355_10211073467135488_2125549536_n14741068_10211073460855331_1009404100_n14797460_10211073473575649_835845959_n

I just wanted to update a little bit, because I have been away for some time now because of a very busy and hectic schedule. But I think that I will from now on have a little more time to update and be more active.

I will look forward to be able to write more , because I have actually missed it a bit!

I Am So Grateful!

Hellooo!

I had my 22 birthday yesterday and I had a blast! I did not get the big party or anything but I still loved my day.

I was actually in school from 8 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon but I was happy and got to share my day with some very nice people. After that I just went home to my mom and dad and enjoyed my day with them. It was nice and quite but I celebrated it either way. Last week I celebrated it a little with my good friend from Norway and next week I will celebrate it a little more with my good friends. And not to forget to say that a lot of lovely people I really care about wrote to me to congratulate. I am so grateful to have my family and have so many good friends.

I just wanted to update you guys a little and I hope that you all have an amazing weekend with people you love and care about! ❤

The Reality of Being Shy

Throughout my life I have had my good periods where I have been more comfortable with myself or in my skin or maybe I would even dare to say that I didn’t know to be shy. But I have been a shy person a good part of my life, and I am still learning to get over it.
When I was small, a little child I have  always been known in my family and friends of the family like the cute little girl who likes to dance and sing and just captured  lot of hearts.

However, from a young age, when I started in school, I was forming a habit of hiding from people I didn’t know and I had a difficult time with approaching people and making friends with them. In the small grades it wasn’t that bad, but as I began to become a teenager life changed a lot. I was still a very happy and outgoing person with my family and now the close friends I had.

On the other hand I was beginning to have a difficult time with new people. I think that I was beginning to feel out of place. And I think it really triggered my shyness and I didn’t really feel like every other child at my age.
When you begin to become a teenager you begin to realize what kind of person you are and I really the worst time with that.

I didn’t feel like I fit in. I was a Bosnian in Denmark, I came to Denmark when I was only six years old and I had been living most of my life in Denmark, but still I had the feeling that I didn’t belong or that I did not belong. I began to feel very uncomfortable with who I was. I was feeling like I had been thrown in between to fires…. I did not feel Danish, but on the other hand I didn’t feel really Bosnian either. I was beginning to lose myself and my identity. Or maybe the right explanation for this would be that I did not know and did not have an idea of how I would build my own identity because i felt like I didn’t belong where I was, and I didn’t belong there where I was from.

That resulted in me beginning to judge myself, based on my own negative thoughts and based on other peoples standards and how a “real Dane” would be. I was trying to play the role of a “real” dane and looked at my friends to see how they acted in different situations and I wanted to be like them, because I just felt invisible. I spend too much time in my own head thinking of how best to act and react in any given situation, but to be more like my friends, and not thinking about how I, as a young Bosnain girl would react. Because that was what I was… I was a confused young teenage girl, in a little town with only Danes surrounding her, and of course I wanted to be like “them”. Who would want to be “DIFFERENT” in your teenage years? Well, not me at that time!

That is also why I began to feel shy and I didn’t want to meet new people because I didn’t know how people would react to me. My name was different, I was not the typical beautiful tall blond danish girl with stunning blue eyes. No, I was the opposite. I was a short girl with brown hair and brown eyes. So again here, I felt so different! I did not want to meet new people and get jugded or even worse, get bullied or anything else. I was really afraid of rejection that I avoided anything with new people involved at all costs. I was not comfortable with being approached by strangers. I would stutter and feel very nervous if I had to meet someone new and I would get sweaty palms, and I really hated that feeling.

This kind of behavior went on for a couple of years. I began to get better as I got older and as I approached the end of my teenage years I became more confident and more comfortable with my self.
I think that after some years I realized that I wasn’t like my danish friends and that I maybe even liked being a little different. I began to feel a little better about myself and I began to realize that my friends liked me, even though I wasn’t like them. But the most important lesson I learned was that I had to be able to see myself as a good person and I had to feel good about myself and what and who I was.

I know a lot of other young people are shy and maybe even have a lot of more problems than I had. I know that they have problems speaking to strangers the most normal places. And when they can’t get out of the situation and have to speak their voices will get really shaky and weak and they will have a hard time even expressing something really simple, just because they are confronted with someone they didn’t know.
This can even lead to panic attacks when there are to many people around someone and they do not know how to handle such a thing.

I know that this is a big deal and very common especially amongst young people who are trying to find them selfs and figure out who they are as a person. And I may have some advice, but I know that everyone is different and we all have different ways to cope with this so it is very important to find what works for you and try to be open to new possibilities.

The things I took out from my experience with this thing called shyness was that we all need real friends who will like you for who you are. They should support you and make you feel good about yourself and encourage you. It can be very difficult and you may feel that they are throwing you to the wolves. But you can do it! It takes practice, BELIEVE ME! But it will get better. And soon you will have the courage to go and ask someone you dont know for help to find the ketchup in the supermarket. But I feel the most important thing is being able to see that you deserve something good and that you deserve to be happy! When I realized that I didn’t want the shyness to overshadow my life and my opportunities I began to feel more brave and more confortable in my own skin and own it, with sweaty palms and all when I asked someone for the direction to the nearest bathroom.

I still, this day, at 21 years old, have some small problems or moments when I feel like I can’t handle to meet new people. Especially when there are going to be a lot of new people and I maybe only know a couple of people that will be at the event too, but now I can push myself into it. And I can say that I never ever have the feeling of regret when I went to something like that and met new people.
And now I am back to being that cute girl that is happy and friendly and loves to meet new people and get to know someone and become friends.

Being shy is no fun, no fun at all if I have to be true. It’s okay to be a little shy, I still am, but it should not hold you back from big things or dreams that you have for yourself!
If you work hard and have great friends around you who support you, like I had and still have you can do it! You will get more confidence and you will be able to realize that you deserve the best and that your shyness should not control your life, but that YOU and only you should control your life!

Get Your Septemberglow On With Goodiebox

I decided to try a new thing and order something called Goodiebox.
Goodiebox is a monthly box that you get sent to you and contains makeupproducts, hairproducts, skincareproducts and fragrances in special sizes. I decided to try a couple of months out and to see how it is and if I am satisfied. I have gotten the first Goodiebox which is for the month of september.

I thought that september would be a nice month to start because I wanted to see what kind of products they would collect and send now that autumn is approaching and we have to prepare our skin for colder times and we need to take more care of our skin in these autum and winter months, but still try and keep the last little summerglow that we have in us.

The good thing about Goodiebox is that you get the Goodiebox and it’s value with the products is bigger than what you actually pay for the box to begin with. In the box you also get a little folder with the different products so that you can read about them, see their original price and Goodiebox even gives you a tip about how you could use the product.

I have yet to try out the products but I am feeling good about it and I really think that I will have a good use of these amazing products. And of course I am looking forward to receiving the october goodiebox and check out what kind of products I will get.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Remembering Scary Things!

Hello guys!
I just wanted to have a little fun and make a tag about some random things about me. I hope you enjoy it!

1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you?
My family calls me Mela.

2. What’s a weird habit of yours?
Hmm, a weird habit of mine… Maybe I would say dancing when I hear music. Not cool dancing, oh no, but the cringeworthy dancing.

3. Do you have any weird phobias?
Weird, i don’t think so, but a pretty normal phobia YES! I cannot handle spiders! It’s better now, but I remember one specific day when I was about 11-12 years old. I was out playing with my friends a weekend and a little stupid spider happend to be on my shoulder. That little fucker! Well, my friends told me that I had a spider on me. Let me tell you that this spider was teeny tiny, but I was so scared and shocked that I began to cry. I think that’s enough for embarrassing stories for tonight!

4. What’s a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you’re alone?
 Oooh, I LOVE music and could not live without it, so it really depends on my mood. But one day it can be and old Christina Aguilera song like “Candyman” and other days it can be Fall Out Boy and some of their songs. And of course I’m in this horrible hole called Kpop, so I’m just screaming weird words and sounds and hopefully I get come correct and maybe I understand 15% of a song, but who cares, I don’t! Dancing and screaming the lyrics is just the way to go!
But a song I always love to go crazy to is “Smells like teen spirit” by Nirvana!

5. What’s one of your nervous habits?
I think that i play with my fingers when I get nervous and I tend to bite my lip too.

6. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
It’s usually the left. But I think if the bed is pushed to the wall on one side then I HAVE to sleep in the side which is not pushed to the wall.

7. What’s the drink you ALWAYS order at starbucks?
I have actually never been to a starbucks… Shocking, I know right! But I always order a Caramel Caffe Latte at Baresso, so I would probably order something with caramel at starbucks too.

8. Do you have any ‘weird’ body ‘skills’?
I don’t think that I have any weird body skills that I can think of. I’m boring like that…

9. What’s your favorite ‘comfort food’/food thats ‘bad’ but you love to eat it anyways?
Chips and ice cream! No doubt there. I am a simple girl.. Give me chips and ice cream and I will be very happy!

10. Time to sleep – what are you ACTUALLY wearing?
An oversized shirt. That’s just what I think is most comfortable.
