A thing I never could give up.

Let’s start with my Wednesday makeup look. I was out in the rain with this look and I was surprised that it still looked good when I came home again. My lipstick today was Sephora Cream lip stain in the colour 13 Marvelous Mauve.

I was at my friend’s school for an open house event Wednesday evening, here in Copenhagen. The school is a creative/art/artist school with different studies all of them with a focus on creativity.
The art pieces my friend did were inspired by nightmares. He sat in a little dark cave he had made and was almost invisible because he blended in with the darkness.

Being there reminded me that art and creativity can be so many things, it’s something I love and never will give up.

On my way home I went by Nicecream before taking the decorated Christmas bus home.

 

 

 

 

Where did you go?

Last night it started snowing her in Copenhagen and I was so happy because I wanted to be out in the snow today. But it already started melting this morning and now it’s all gone. I guess I have to wait with going out with my sled.

I used my Monday to get my yearly check at the optician and do some shopping for things to make headpieces.

Today my sister and I did some more Christmas baking and I finally took some photos of myself.
My makeup today was:

Eyes – MAC eyeshadow in: Vanilla, Era and Red Brick. Mascara Benefit Roller Lash.

Lips – NYX Lip Lingerie in: Push-Up.

Tomorrow Daniel is going to see the new Star Wars movie and I’m going to an event at my friend’s school where they will show the different things that they have designed the last couple of months.

Indira’s birthday.

Yesterday it was our little diva princess Indira’s 10-year birthday. I can’t believe that we’ve had her for almost 10 years already, but she will always be our baby. We celebrated Indira’s birthday with cake, hot chocolate and pizza, all of it vegan.

In the evening Daniel and I went to Draghouse, they had a Christmas show and like always it was really good and we had a good time. My lipstick last night was MAC – “Quick Sizzle” from the “Shop MAC Cook MAC” collection 2012.

My Sunday went with finishing the decorating of the Christmas trees, we have 2, and all the boring things you have to do at home. There is only a photo of the real tree which is in the living room, the other one is made of plastic.

Annie get your gun.

Daniel and I just got home from the theatre, where we saw the “Annie get your gun” musical with some of Daniel’s family. It was really good and I loved the costumes! I want dresses like that too, so I guess I will have to learn how to make them myself.

Yesterday I wasn’t feeling well, I had a bad headache again. Luckily, I’m better today and I had a good evening in good company and it also helped make me feel better that I got a new unicorn book. Unicorns always makes thing better! My lipstick today was NYX – soft matte lip cream in Tokyo.

Three good things.

As I wrote previously in a different post, my sister has made an advent calendar for me and I want to show you some of the things I got.

A Christmas tea cup, I drink a lot of tea, and MAC Cleans Off Oil which I have used for years.

I try to remind myself to be grateful for the good things in my life.

Here are three good things:

●      I’m able to do things I love

●      I’ll do even more things I love in 2018

●      I have people around me that make me happy

Today I didn’t wear any makeup and therefore no lipstick. I’ll put some lipstick on tomorrow.

 

Christmas Queens!

Last night my friend Simone and I went to see “Christmas Queens” here in Copenhagen. Of course, we had VIP tickets, we got the new Christmas queen CD, met all the queens before the show and took pictures with all of them. All of the queens were so nice and friendly, Simone got many compliments for her boots, I can understand why.

After the meet and greet we went to the concert hall where we had our front row seats, we were very satisfied with our seats. I didn’t really know what to expect because I haven’t been to any Christmas Queen shows before or a drag show with seating.

The show was fantastic! It was fun, the dancers were talented and I was really surprised how amazing some of the queens sang. I would definitely go again next Christmas if the show will be in Copenhagen.

The show finished at midnight, we stayed a bit at the after party before heading home.

Yesterday’s lipstick was MAC – Dark Deed from the Stroke of Midnight Holiday collection (2013) and Currant lip pencil, also from MAC.

It was a real slow Sunday today, I stayed in bed until noon because I needed to rest but I still managed to do some things at home. Daniel went out to buy a pretty Christmas tree after work. Indira was excited to see the Christmas tree, but a bit sceptical too. Daniel and I decorated the tree together after we had eaten dinner.

My lipstick today is Pure Zen from MAC.

December is here!

Today it’s the 1st of December which means first day of winter and World AIDS Day. I surprised my sister this morning with an advent calendar gift and she gave me one too. Indira had an appointment at the vet today and for the first time, she behaved. She is notorious for being extra grumpy at the vet, even though she is small, she’s a diva.

Later I met up with my friend Daniel at the MAC counter in the city where they had a body paint event because of World AIDS Day. I got my Viva Glam lipstick and the product my sister asked me to buy, I talked a bit with the artists and took a few photos of them working on the body paint.

Talented artists in action!

After makeup shopping we went to 42 Raw to get a beet latte and a matcha latte and to talk a bit.

Like I wrote in another blog, I’m going to try to wear a different lipstick every day in December and today I had MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus on.

Getting ready for Christmas!

My sister and I spent yesterday and today in the kitchen baking vegan Christmas cookies and we had a good time doing it. Saturday, we will get our Christmas tree and I’m going to the Christmas Queens concert! I’m still not sure what to wear for the concert, good I still have tomorrow to decide.

I’m going to MAC tomorrow and buying a Viva Glam lipstick because it’s the 1st of December, which is World AIDS Day. I don’t know if you have seen it yet, but Sia will be the Viva Glam spokesperson in 2018, I knew she would be one day!

I challenge myself!

In December, I will wear a different lipstick every day. I have so many lipsticks so why not challenge myself and try to wear them all, or at least many of them?

I have a couple events I’m going to in December, Christmas Queens on the 2nd, musical the 6th, concert the 8th, Indira’s birthday and Draghouse the 9th and many other events, they are all good occasions to wear lipstick.

Party weekend!

It’s been a while, I have been okay most of the days and got some things done, but I’m starting to have more headaches again which I hate. I had an appointment at the hospital but they didn’t help much.

My weekend has been really good together with Daniel. We went to our friend Mareridt’s birthday party Friday, where I had made two vegan cakes for the party. We had a good time at the party with some friends and Mareridt liked our gift.

Saturday, the dorm (our old home) had a “prom” party, where we went and I did the prom photos. It was really fun and I was happy that people were happy to see us. Daniel and I had matching outfits, I think we were a beautiful couple. They had done a really good job planning the party with welcome drinks, photo wall and a quiz, which me and some others won.

Prom night & æbleskiver

Sunday mood today. Daniel and I went out on our Christiania bike to Nicecream Copenhagen, to get æbleskiver, it is a Danish cake thing you eat in December/Christmas time, with vanilla nicecream and jam. They were so good and we will probably go there again next Sunday.   

Two shoots in one day.

I did two photo shoots today, I started at 11am and finished at 3pm, they were with two different models at different locations. It went really well and I’m very satisfied with the results. Because both of the shoots were outdoors I’m a bit tired tonight from being outside most of the day. We made vegan pizza for dinner and now Daniel and I are going to watch some more Stranger Things, which is my favourite series together with Mr. Robot.

Busted! 

Busted! 

We haven’t planned our weekend yet, but I’m too tired to think about that right now.

 

I wish we were going on a holiday trip!

I would love to travel somewhere nice with pretty places to take photos, but for now I’ll have to do it in Copenhagen. I’m not sure where I want to go first, but it should be a place with many photography opportunities.

I have 2 photos from this week and more will come. I hope you like them.

Mareridt & Simone

Tomorrow I don’t have any appointments with any models, but maybe I’ll do some other photos, who knows.

A good start.

I have already done two photo shoots this week, I have three more setup and I LOVE it!

Monday, I did a shoot with Mareridt and I got my belated birthday present, vegan chocolate, a lot of it. We did a really cool shoot and it was not what we had planned, but it was better than the original idea.

I just saw that there are 18 days until I’m going to the Christmas Queens show with the queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race!!!    

Busy week ahead.

I got a couple of photoshoots the upcoming week and I’m working on my photography homepage, which I’ll show you when it is ready.

Today was just a cosy Sunday with Daniel & Daniel at 42 Raw.

Meow, Indira isn't sure if she want to feel the Christmas spirit yet. 

Meow, Indira isn't sure if she want to feel the Christmas spirit yet. 

I feel I have many things I want to do, but I have to organize my days so I can get time for everything. My sense of time is so bad that I need to plan my day and set an alarm when I need to remember to get out the door on time. I really want to be better at it and I have to find a way to become better at it. If you have any tips, let me know.

Is my life what I imagined?

No! Not at all, but it doesn’t mean that my life is bad. I know that you can’t control everything and sometimes some things happen for a reason that will give meaning later, while other things never make any sense. But when I say you can’t control everything it doesn’t mean that you just have to give up and not try to change things.

There are 3 subjects I want to tell about.

  1. How I imagined my life would be now a year or less ago.
  2. Something that didn’t go as I hoped for and why that’s OK.
  3. What I would like to change if I could.

 

Looking back to what I imagine my life would be now is very different from what it is. I would have started my dream education, Daniel and I would have gotten an apartment together and I would still have contact with my siblings in England.

As you know I didn’t get into the education, but I don’t give up that easy and I’ll keep applying until I get in.
I was very sad that we didn’t get the apartment in the moment but I can see the benefits with waiting and then get the perfect place we can call home.

The last thing is what I really wish I could change and I have tried for so long and it makes me so sad every day. It’s very personal and a very long story if I had to tell the whole background story. I have 3 siblings, we have the same dad, they are 20, 17 (soon 18) and 16 years old. I spoke with my youngest sister on the 16th of August, the day she turned 16, that was the last time I have heard anything from them. I don’t know why they have cut the contact to my sister here in Copenhagen and me, but they got new phone numbers and don’t reply to any messages, they don’t even look at them. If I could change things they would never had moved to another country in the first place, I gave them the option in 2014 that they could stay here and I would help them with all the practical stuff…
They live in England now and my sister and I can’t get in contact with them at all. I would just like to know why? But what worries me the most is that some people from England have contacted me to ask if I have my siblings phone number because they are cutting a lot of people out of their life at the moment. I would like to get to talk with them one day, but only time will tell if it will happen.

Tomorrow Daniel and I will be spending some time with our favourite Daniel. It’s going to be a good Sunday.

 

 

Organizing!

I used my Wednesday on organizing the kitchen and putting things into glass containers which look better and are much better for storing than the plastic bags they come in.

I made vegan granola for the first time and I’m looking forward to having it for breakfast tomorrow with the new oat yogurt I bought the other day. I used so much time in the kitchen today, I also made hummus and I realized that I have to make it more often because it’s so good!

23432543_10155808884368077_643882635_o.jpg

I’ll probably use some of tomorrow on organizing my clothes, but that’s also very time consuming, it might take all day.    

Something to hope for.

Today was a very pretty November day in Copenhagen, so I just had to go for a walk. The sky was blue, the sun was shining and the air was cold, so everything was perfect to reflect on life.

Or to say hi to the cute animals who also enjoyed the pretty November day.

At the moment, I have some different things on my mind, but I hope that everything will turn out good.   

Sleepy Sunday.

We didn't do much today, I did some pratical things and Daniel was really tired from the party last night. I think he might have realized that he is getting "old" and it's hard to party all night. 

Last night I was watching videos on YouTube together with Indira, and she was lucky to have half of the bed all for herself.

Daniel is already asleep, but I'll also go to bed soon. 

Good night. 

Good night. 

Saturday in good company.

I had a really nice Saturday with Daniel and brunch in the morgen and later I met up with my best friend from public school, and her son.

This morning I wanted to do something nice for Daniel because he have had some long days at work lately. So I made a nice brunch before he was going to the christmas party at his work. I love doing things like that when we have time for it, just relaxe and enjoy.
I left a bit later to meet up with my friend Rhea and her 10 year old son. Like I said to Rhea, we are getting old, her son is already 10 years old and we have been friends for over 19 years. The three of us went to see Thor: Ragnarok, we all like the movie and had a really good time together.
