Selfridge’s beautiful window display

I took a picture of all the window displays outside of Selfridge while we walked through Oxford street. They were so beautiful and planetary themed. My favorite is what seems to be Mars, the god of war. And the one with feathers behind it is my least favorite… it felt very strange. For example: why is he holding the bow like that? And the overall pose too, is very strange.

Planets and stars are some of my faves and this was very aesthetically pleasing to me.

Late night dy(e)ing.

newhairYep, I dyed my hair last night after my parents came home with my dye. My mother also told me that I’ll be working today because they have a lack of people so I’m just going to write this and then put on my work clothes and head out. profilI used Schwarzkopf Brilliance in Blue Black and left a strand of the washed out turquoise which got discolored when I washed out the black dye from my hair (so it an indigo color right now) and I really like it! Since I have naturally black hair, I don’t really want to dye it my natural color when I want to cover hair that I’ve bleached so I choose this jet/ink black instead. I’ve had it once before but my hair was much shorter then :3whiFrom February/Mars 2012 (with miss Anon)

Time flies, now I really have to get ready! See you tomorrow~

Lyko competition, Team Colourit.se!

Sunday~, Sunday~ and even though I don’t have school or work tomorrow I feel slightly sad that it’s Sunday >w< So instead of just sitting here and do nothing I decided to finish an entry to a competition I said I would enter!

Here’s my entry, the “beauty kit” I want to win together with her pick of products for around 600 SEK:NamnlösFrom left to right:
DuWop’s Lip Venom 
The Balm’s Stainiac
NailTwist
The Balm’s Pick Up Liners (Mickey)
Lee Strafford’s Dry SchaMPOO

Med detta bidrag är jag med och tävlar i Lykotävlingen som anordnas mellan bloggarna Colour it,  Imakeyousmile,  Idasbeauty samt  Cuponation.se.

I picked products I’ve never tried before (but believe I’ll use a lot) and things that would “complete” what she picked. c: I also really like that everything would look pretty together on a shelf or in your toiletry bag.

The competition end in three hours so I hope she wins and picks me! ^^b

If you wants to see what she picked, click here to get to her blog post.

See you tomorrow or on Tuesday! Have a lovely week~

Express delivery from Asos!

I’m in need of a new pair of shoes (since I have a tendensy of destroying them on a regular basis :c) and since I saw a pair on Asos a couple of months ago, I decided to put them in my basket! Along with two maxi dresses and a pair of leggins.

image4xxl

 In total it became 801 SEK so I precisely qualified for the “FREE EXPRESS DELIVERY TO SWEDEN
ORDERS ABOVE 800 SEK” offer on the Asos UK website. I don’t know how much you have to buy for in your currency but it’s probably the value of 80 GBP.
The express delivery guaranties delivery within four days so I should get my stuff at the latest on Thursday :3
This will be my first express package ever ÖwÖ’ Never choose it since I don’t ever have a hurry but it’s free this time so why not =w=

Oh and I’ve ordered another thing that will come next week. I’ll show it to you guys once it has arrived. Very exited over it because I’ve wanted one since I went in 8th grade but I had totally forgotten about it until I saw one, two days ago. xD

Anywaaay, have a nice Sunday~

What I’ve gotten in the mail the past week!

I’ve gotten everything I ordered… in the same week! :D I’m so happy~♥

First thing that arrived was Learn With Pokemon Typing Adventure (I had to pick it up though and that took me two days since I had to work)^^
Such a different game and a really fun way to pass time… getting all the medals and Pokémon in the courses is addicting!DSC_0160DSC_0161

[The fire skin ♡]

The next package that arrived was my ear stretching set from the seller Never86 on Amazon!DSC_0163Stainless steel tunnels from 1.6mm to 10mm (16g to 00g).DSC_0167Stainless steel tapers, also from 1.6mm to 10mm!DSC_0168They came like this, in ziplock bags!

The shipping was faster with more than a week but unfortunately I got three 1.6mm tunnels and just one 2.1mm tunnel so I have to contact him and see if he will do something about it… I hope he can just ship another 2.1mm tunnel but we’ll see, haha. (I have no idea how it works.)

And today… ANIMAL CROSSING: NEW LEAF ARRIVED!!! ♥♥♥♥
HAPPY EUROPEAN RELEASE DAY EVERYONE!DSC_0170:’3
DSC_0172Aww ;w; You see the little tree you planted at the major ceremony in the middle!DSC_0174Loving the DS stand you got with Pokemon Typing Adventure (you can also get it with Kid Icarus Uprising *don’t have that one though… yet*). I can browse through internet and run around with one hand at the same time haha! x’D Tommy at Nookling Junction and Reese at Re-Tail are so cute. My villagers are also freakin’ adorable!
I have to do a post on my Animal Crossing experience when I’ve settled in and such :3 Hope you’re looking forward to it as much as me!

Such a strange weather day! It looks like it’s going to rain anytime in one minute and the next the sun is shining crazy strong. I’m having a recovery day today because yesterday was very long for me~ I’m still exhausted  (╯︵╰,)

Lip-product used: Jelly Pong Pong’s Lip Blush (moisturizing lip stain).

I chose the lip blush because it’s easy to wipe off! Since I don’t want to sweat in a boiling factory with lipstick all over my face, haha!
I’ll be back tonight but now it’s time to earn some money *I’m so nervious!*.

See ya and have a nice Tuesday! // Nancy

The Red Lippy Project: Day 1

The Red Lippy Project
(If you don’t know what TRLP is, click on the text!)

Arashi and I wore our red lippies to the beach today (you know the BBQ-invite I got). It was nice talking to people, having a laugh but still being able to relax and play some Mario 3D land with your feet in the water and hearing people and waves in the background.
Prepare yourself for crappy 3DS pictures~

HNI_0002 HNI_0009 HNI_0003 HNI_0007 HNI_0004 HNI_0008The lipstick faded when I swam but I just reapplied it afterwards! ^^

Lip-product used: Rimmel London’s Apocalips in Big Bang.

This was a very pleasant afternoon~ I’m back at Arashi’s again but I’ll be going back home after E3 tomorrow! See you then :3

Glossybox Sweden May 2013

Finally picked up my Glossybox yesterday and as you all know, this will be my last one (for real this time haha)! Even though this isn’t products I’d usually be stoked about… I’m actually very satisfied with this box~
May’s theme is Magical Beauty and there’s no makeup in it (in mine at least) but products that are good for your hair and skin now that it’s summer.
Soooo let’s see what I got!

IMG_08651. Wen Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing ConditionerIMG_0860

This product states to be everything in one: shampoo, conditioner, hair mask and styling product. It also cleans your hair without stripping it of its natural oils, strength or shine.
It sounds too good to be true, all I’m wondering is “what’s wrong?”… maybe the price. It’s 299 SEK for 480 ml (which is a lot of product). I won’t be buying it though since I’d rather spend 299 on something more fun!

2. Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps Organic Citrus Castile Liquid SoapIMG_0861

One of the finest ecological & fair trade-marked soaps for body and face from a company that’s been going for 150 years so far. It’s made from coconut-, olive-, jojoba- and hamp oil + essential oils.
It’s a very liquidy soap and it smells just like Burt’s bees lemon butter cuticle cream, it’ll be very interesting to use!
The full-size product is 99 SEK for 236 ml.

3. Puma Sync Deospray + EdTIMG_0862

Exotic and fruity smell from papaya, mandarin, orange, lotus, rose, white peach ect.
I’m actually already in love with Puma deospray’s (I’ve tried two other ones), I think they smell good and last all day so it was nice to get a little can I can take with me. I don’t use fragrances so the EdT isn’t really interesting for me but I think it was cool that the one time I get a fragrance sample (which I’ve been hoping not to get since I started subscribing), it’s also a deospray with it and not a lotion.
The full-size EdT (40ml) is 219 SEK and the deospray (150 ml) is 99 SEK.

4. Color Club Age Of Aquarius NailpolishIMG_0863

Trendsetting Color Club has existed since 1979 and they are apparently showing us this summer’s color.
Funfacts: 1. I’m an aquarius 2. I love when they name colors funny/beautiful names 3. I just coloured my hair turquoise 4. I love matching.
This nail lacquer is meant for me haha! :D It’s too bad they don’t have the name anywhere on the bottle though :c
This polish is 69 SEK/15 ml.

5. Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Sun Lotion SPF 15IMG_0864

A sun lotion which acts like a filter against UVA and UVB + infrared beams. It also contains nourishing botanical extract.
The lotion itself looks like the bottle (which is cool) and it smells so good (not at all like the awful smell of sunscreen). I’m really bad with using protection against the sun since I don’t get sun burned (which isn’t actually an excuse) and I really don’t like how sunscreen smells or feels on my skin. But this one might make me better with using it. I’ve also considered buying some kind of spray (don’t know which one though).
The full-size product is 109 SEK/80 ml.

g4bqwi48yxoyt9zv0bn5We also got a Femme Natural Boost energy drink but since a lot of people got an old can (their official fb-site says that they labeled the cans wrong though… which is questionable. How is that even possible?), it’s been drama over that. I’m not affected though, mine is fine till next year C:

That’s that people, my Glossybox period is over but it was fun while it lasted. I liked being a costumer until a few weeks ago. We’ll see if I’ll come back some time (for the special boxes maybe) or if new boxes will be available in Sweden! :D

I’m going to sleep over at a friend’s house today and tomorrow I got invited to a BBQ on my friends neighborhood’s island. I won’t let down The Red Lippy Project but I might fuse together day 1 & 2 if I can’t upload posts at my friend’s house! ^^ See you tomorrow or on Monday!

New hair: “I chose the color of your eyes…”

Because I’m (unconsciously) a hopeless romantic.

Bild 2013-05-25 kljessica-rabbit-1Bild 2013-05-25 kl. 22.22I was so bored last night that I did Jessica Rabbit lips.
I think that I will do a tutorial on Tuesday c:

I’m going to bed now, I’ll see you tomorrow! I just have “kick-out of love” tomorrow (last time to hang out with the teachers before we graduate). Graduation on Wednesday. Crazy.

Good night!
