Homemade Kalimotxo (Vangria)

Homemade Kalimotxo (Vangria)

I really hope you are not sick of me talking about drinks by now because this is not the first nor the last.

This drink is uhm. Kind of quirky. It is a Spanish drink that it consists of mainly two ingredients: red wine and cola.

Yup. You did read that right. Red wine and cola is not really my standard mix of drinks, but the weirdest things are mixed when speaking about drinks, and we will try it nonetheless.

And for all of us who do not know how to pronounce Kalimotxo, it goes something like: Calimotcho.

Enough chit chat; lets go get the booze.

Homemade Avocado toast (4ways)

Homemade Avocado toast (4ways)

Another day, another recipe. Today we are looking at something I enjoy eating when I feel like doing something extra for myself.

It is an avocado toast.

Avocado toast got really popular years ago, and I still enjoy it once in a while now, even though it is not a “craze” anymore.

So today we are looking into my four favourite ways to make avocado toast.

Safiya Nygaard X Colourpop Lipstick review

Safiya Nygaard X Colourpop Lipstick review

These lipsticks have been sitting in my apartment for way to long.

I was super excited about them and bought them in the thought that they had to be great. I have watched Safiya for years, and to be honest, have seen every single of her videos. She had such a high standard for what her lipstick should be able to tolerate (and she made “butthole coverage” famous- essentially stressing the importance of having a lipstick that actually stayed on, even on the “wetter” part of the lips). So of course, I had to have these.

The thought that these are inspired by the franken-lipsticks she has made in bad makeup science experiments I think is super cool and I have been looking forward to it.

Easy day to night makeup

Easy day to night makeup

The “hardship” of having to go from either work or school straight to a party or event, can be really hard as the makeup that is usually worn to work and school is either minimal or really dressed down.

That is why we will be doing an easy day to night makeup look today. So you will know what to do when in a pinch or don’t have enough time to really do anything before the event.

I usually do not really wear much makeup, which means I do not feel like I need that much for going to a party (if I actually went to parties that is). I do not really wear much in the daytime either, which means this look might be a bit too subtle for some tastes. (But if you would like to see a more packed on look, I can make it – just say so)

Homemade Lemon Beer (Clara Con Lemon)

Homemade Lemon Beer (Clara Con Lemon)

This drink is one I have been eyeing for quite some time. If we have to use the universal name for a Clara Con Lemon, it would be a Lemon beer.

It is a Spanish alcoholic drink that I have been wondering about for SO long. The mix of beer and lemonade is just weird to me, but nonetheless I am really excited to try it out.

Makeup Explained – Eyelash Curler

Makeup Explained – Eyelash Curler

Makeup, makeup, makeup…

Makeup can be a jungle to wrap your head around.
In this series we are looking closely at the different types of makeup products.

We are looking at what it is and does.

What types exist.

And if you need it, then when should you use it.

Today our focus is all on Eyelash Curlers.

You may also watch this on my YouTube Channel 😊

What is it & what does it do?

An eyelash curler is a beauty tool usually of metal made with clamps that are meant to squeeze your eyelashes to make them curl and help them look longer, thicker, and fuller

What types exist?

There are not many different types of eyelash curlers. They usually come in metal, but the colour and finish may vary.

Do you need it & when should you use it?

You do not really need an eyelash curler, but it can be a great help if you want to achieve beautiful, long, and full lashes.

It should be used before you put on mascara, to make sure your lashes have the right “form” before using the mascara.

If there is some type of makeup you would like explained, tell me in the comments and we will get to it.

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!

DIY paper butterflies

Something we do not do enough, but I love is DIY’s and creative tasks.

I made these butterflies quite a while ago but never got to show you how to make them (even though I filmed it). So today I am doing just that, and we will have fun with it 😊

The butterflies can be used as decorations for almost anything; I saw some great pictures of paper butterflies hanging on a stick, but I used them as decorations for Christmas kind of as “cards” where one colour of butterfly was for one person.

I also have some of them on a piece of string to hang as decoration – though I do not have enough space to actually hang it anywhere (they ended up on my closet)
