Music: Birdy – Shelter

Don’t really think I have to explain much about this number, it’s an amazing The XX cover by the 16 (!!) year old Birdy. So blow your speakers up with it and definitely listen to more of Birdy’s songs!

Yvonne Koné Stock Sale

Yvonne Koné makes the most beautiful minimalistic, qualitative and timeless accessories. I’m especially fond of the leather bags and kinda tell my self that I really deserve on (hellooo, I go to Crossfit 4 times a week that kinda deserves a little present to myself right?)..

But the economy isn’t what it used to be (haha, don’t you just hate people that actually use phrases like that in a conversation?!), so we all find ourselves some good bargains. You can call me Ms Dealer, Ms you-personal-deals-dealer: because on the 4th of September at Vesterbrogade 69 Yvonne Koné will sell some of her stock items for a dump price.

For more information check the Yvonne Koné facebook event page!

New In: NARS

I have been lurking NARS’ Orgasm for years, even swatched it sometimes when I was abroad, but never actually bought it. It has a light golden shimmer in it and I actually hate everything glittery on my cheeks. But since the entire blogosphere seems to go bananas about this blush since the history of internet, I decided to give it a try when I had the opportunity. So when my sister and my brother-from-another-mother went to London for some days I asked them to buy it together with the bronzer Laguna.

I’m not sure what it is, but receiving or buying new make-up is honestly one of the most enchanting moments in life.. The sight that untouched piece of heaven, YUM! So these two products have been hyped till the fullest and you always risk the chance of totally getting disappointed. And to be fair, the first time I used it (in the middle of the night, getting ready to go out) I actually got a bit disappointed, Orgasm didn’t really got picked up by my brush and Laguna seemed to be to light… Often after an experience like that, my make-up mistakes just end up in my drawer. But luckily I gave them another shot the day after and I actually liked them pretty good in daylight usage!

Orgasm is an easy every day blush: it blends easy and it has the right amount of pigmentation, it is a peachy pink colour with gold shimmers – which luckily are not overwhelming. It tends to stain a little bit easier than my Sensai holy grail, but it still keeps it place pretty much all day. Laguna is a matt bronzer which is perfect for contouring and just give your face that pinch of life back that you lost after sleeping 12 hours.. Bronzers for me often tend to be a pitfall: it either brings back that “umph” or it just looks like I rolled in mud.. Laguna is luckily rather easy to blend and releases the right amount of pigmentation to build up with (better save than sorry is definitely my motto with bronzer), so you can’t really do that much wrong! I love the fact that there is no awkward brush somewhere hidden in the package, NARS just made it into the most efficient flat packaging and honestly who uses the brushes that comes with make-up?!

The XX – Coexist Preorder

I’m not gonna lie, I don’t really have a favorite fashion webshop, definitely with buying clothing I love the whole experience: going into a shop, touching everything, trying it… But I do have an all-time favorite webshop: Amazon! Buying English books for not more then 3 pounds p/b (e.g. the entire Grey trilogy and Hunger games trilogy, so 6 books, for about 20 euro’s. Where’s you already pay more than 15 euro for one book in a conventional store!), buying stuff for in the kitchen for a fraction of the price at Magasin (Danish department store) and just everything that is not available in the Netherlands or in Denmark. I heart!

I also love to pre-order stuff at Amazon. They have this guarantee when the price ends up to be lower at the actual release date you pay that amount. But usually the price actually increases after that day! So when I saw you can pre-order the XX’ new album I ordered the deluxe LP version for 21 pound!

Coexist will be released on the 10th of September!

Music: Boom Clap Bachelors

I hardly ever listen to Danish music. Where real life Danish is already hard to understand, Danish music is just like mumbojumbo to me. But when I heard this song by Boom Clap Bachelors I kinda realized again how universal music is. Besides Løb, stop, stå I don’t really understand anything (okay, I lie the occasional kærlighed and haha the English phrases I do understand), but they defintily managed in conveying the message of a beautiful summer love song!

This song makes me wanna take my (fictional) car and pack a bikini and the boyfriend and drive somewhere where it’s always sunny!
