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~

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

Because I’m (unconsciously) a hopeless romantic.

Schwarzkopf Poly Color toner schampo in Noble Chestnut.

Skärmavbild 2013-03-31 kl. 11.04.09 Skärmavbild 2013-03-31 kl. 11.03.54As I mentioned on Twitter yesterday I dyed my hair. I used Schwarzkopf Poly Color toner shampoo in Noble Chestnut. I’ve never used this one before but I thought that I would try it!20adelkastanj_250x250I felt like the shade matched my old color but surprise, surprise, it got a lot darker than on the package. It says that it’ll last about 28 washes so I just have to wait for it to fade that way. The sun will help too haha.

BeforeIMG_0740

Took this picture just before heading for the shower.

AfterIMG_0750 IMG_0749A dark red-brown color. I like it but it wasn’t the color I wanted…

Good: I really like the formula! The color acts like a shampoo so it makes the hair stay where you put it (unlike other hair dye’s).
I bought it for under 50 SEK at the supermarket, which is cheap in Sweden.

Meh: If you plan to use it I would recommend to not don’t swirl your hair around too much because I did and the shampoo made my hair stick together pretty bad. The conditioner included in the package made it untangle though.

Next post: Milani color statement lipstick will be up in about an hour~

See ya!// Nancy

Maria Nila products from Glossybox!

Good afternoon, people! ^__^/

I announced on my Twitter a week ago that I was one of the first 50 to buy from GlossyBox.se’s Facebook shop and therefor would be getting two full-sized products from Maria Nila! They arrived yesterday and I was very exited~

Skärmavbild 2013-03-13 kl. 11.58.07They came in the usual outer Glossybox-box. And the products we got are Maria Nila’s finishing spray and instant shine.Skärmavbild 2013-03-13 kl. 12.03.19

The finishing spray is discribed as “a spray that keeps the hairstyle in place after drying and gives lasting hold. Easy to brush out and doesn’t leave any residue. Contains UVA-UVB filters.”
I tried it when I got home and it really does keep its promise! I sprayed my bangs upwards and to the side (and they stayed there, which is an achievement in itself), waited for the spray to be completely dry and then brushed the product out. You wouldn’t have guessed that I had had anything in my hair. I’m loving this product already! It also protects the hair from UV-light, which is really important, especially when summer comes.

On the back of the shine spray it says: “Gives hair intense shine. Can be used as a leave-in conditioner (do not rinse  product from hair) after shampooing or as a finishing product after blow-drying for shine.”
I was a little skeptical to this one before receiving the products because Glossybox described it as a product used after blow-drying and I don’t blow-dry my hair! But as it said on the back, I’ll just use it when I’ve washed my hair instead. ^_^ I haven’t tried this one yet but I need to wash my hair today so I’ll do it later!

If you received the hair oils in your February Glossybox and love the smell, these products smell the same! I would really like a dry shampoo that smells the same and after using trustful Google, I found the Maria Nila Kolorit Dry Shampoo:maria nila kolorit dry shampooIt sounds promising since it’s a dry–shampoo for colored hair and I’m planning to color mine soon but I have a question, has anyone tried this one? Is it good and does it smell like all the other products? I’m wondering this because the bottle looks different from the ones I got.

Well, that’s all I got to say~
Thank you Glossybox and Maria Nila for the products.
Looking forward to March’s Glossybox, it’s a few weeks until then through.

See you later!

Swedish Glossybox, February 2013!

It’s that time of the month again, Glossybox time! It was Valentine’s day this month so the box is different with it’s black base and fushia ribbon. DSC_0579But that’s where the Valentine’s part end (unlike the rumors that we’d only get chocolate in the box! >w<‘) . The theme this month is hair and lips. I mostly got hair-related products but since I don’t really take care of my hair, I’m fine with it. So what did I get?

DSC_0580

1. Maria Nila Stockholm Swedish Therapy Oil (intense moisture)DSC_0586

“A Swedish, nurturing hair oil with Lingonberry seed oil that contains antioxidants which protects against free radicals. It’s rapidly absorbed and makes the hair smooth and shiny without getting greasy.”
It smells very pleasent and it’ll be fun to try it out. Really hoping the “without getting greasy”-part is true!
The full-sized product is 199 SEK/50 ml. And the bottle I got is 10 ml.

2. Masty Superpac (intensive Reconstuctor and Conditioner)DSC_0587

“Masty have used ingrediens that is good for both the environment and hair for 25 years. This conditioner strenghten damaged hair with rice protein (among other things). Your hair gets stronger, soft and shiny without getting heavy.”
The conditioner smells really sweet, I like it~ I have “damaged hair” checked on my beauty profile because I’ve bleached my hair several times and also because my mother’s hair is very worn. I don’t really use conditioner so my mother will get this one.
The full-sized bottle is 119 SEK/236 ml. And the bottle I got is 59 ml.

3. Modelco Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner in nude.DSC_0589 DSC_0588

“Make the perfect pout and the illusion of fuller lips. Wax along with cacao- and shea butter protects your lips. Apply lightly on your lip-line. Has a built-in sharpener.”
It’s cool that its nude because I can’t recall seeing a nude lip liner before (usually they’re pink or red). I told my friend yesterday that I don’t use lipstick anymore because I don’t have a lip liner… and I got one (same with the eyeliner in last month’s Glossybox)!
This is the full-sized product and it’s 195 SEK if I were to buy it.

4. Batiste Dry Shampoo OriginalDSC_0590

“A classic and “best in test-winner” that gives you a newly washed-feel to your hair, perfect to refresh your hair between washes. Apply to your roots for instant refreshing and volume.” 
I am a fan of dry shampoo’s but the smell of this particular one isn’t great. I know what they have one that smells like cherry so that’s one I want to try! But I’m sure they have other great scents, anyone that has a favorite?
Full-sized product is 69 SEK/200 ml. And the bottle I got is 50 ml.

5. Modelco Cheek + Lip Tint in Rose RedDSC_0591

“Get the perfect “natural rosy cheeks and nice colored lips”-illusion that lasts long. Dab a small amount of the Gel formula on your cheeks and lips”
Since this one was a success in the New Year’s Glossybox, they put it in this one too. Therefor I got two now. I don’t mind though! I love lip tints and this one is so expensive that I don’t mind having a backup!
This is the full-sized product and it costs 155 SEK/10 ml.

Bonus.DSC_0593

The bonus in this Glossybox is a “get 100 SEK off if you buy things for atleast 500 SEK”-code at Zalando… not anything I can use this month since I’m going to Edinburgh on the 18th!

That was all folks~ I’m satisfied with what I got in my box and I’m looking forward to the next one!
If you’re subscribed to a beauty box and has written/talked about this month’s  box, please let me know. I’d love to know what’s in other people’s boxes (both internationally and Swedish)! Until next time, bye~

Only hours left of 2012!

I lazied of for a couple of days because writing things down on an iPhone was not ideal… (I hated it! I need buttons to press down). But yesterday my parents went out and bought a charger so the laptop works again *hallelujah choir*.

What I’ve wanted to share with you guys are a couple of things! One was that I ate passion fruit for the first time! Such a strange fruit and it taste almost nothing like the juice. Only a quick after-taste here and there.

whole-and-cut-passion-fruit

Reading to put aside the thought of frog-eggs made just want to put it all aside, haha. But I mixed it with kiwi and banana so it was yummy. The actual fruit was sour and slippery, while the seed was bitter (but not overly so!).

20121231-103801.jpgI want to eat this fruit salad again… but none of these fruits are left! :’c

Now to the next thing:

I bought color B4 Extra to get the nasty red color out of my hair. The color didn’t come out as I wanted from the beginning and when it faded it just turned to an oxblood color! D: My hair felt really bad too, all stiff and greasy. Reading that my hair probably would turn all porous… I thought “fuck it, I’ll do this and then wait a while” which I’m doing >w<‘ I can’t afford buying anything to do with my hair anyway…

But it worked out great. I got back the color I had before the red, which was my bleached hair with faded brown on top of that. I think it’s my favorite color to have when I don’t have jet-black hair or something fun~

20121231-111814.jpgThe same day before the treatment.Bild 2012-12-31 kl. 11.40

And today!

My hair is super soft right now and it doesn’t look as tired so I’m satisfied.

Now to the final thing. Because we got the computer working I could finally redeem my 2 months of free movies and tv-series yesterday! But I’m doubting that it actually got redeemed because it says that it’s only valid for a month… so I’ve contacted the company and we’ll see!

It was quite a movie day yesterday! I watched Rio and Sanctum on the TV. Both were good, Rio in a fun, Pixlar way and Sanctum in a “Omg, it’s The Descent all over again but underwater and without monsters”-way… and I love The Descent!

Later my brother and I watched The Thing (2011), House of wax, Boogeyman and the first part I missed in Paranormal activity 3.

Right now I’m watching Hanna. Half way in and I’m really liking it.

I really need to wash my hair, haha. So I should do that now before grandma arrives.

I hope you’ll have a nice new year. I don’t know yet if it’ll be troubleless but I’m hoping.

See you in the new year!

Sweeny Toddish curls~

Hi guys!

Bild 2012-12-04 klewfBild 2012-12-04 kljkThe crazy hair I have right now! :D Decided to braid and bun my hair before sleeping last night and this is the result. Excluded  two pieces in the front and it looks a lot cooler than when I make my whole hair *w*

Unfortunatly it’s going to get ruined pretty soon because I’m going to wear this today :3

Bild 2012-12-04 kl. 07.27A kitty hat with with including cat paws (or should I say monster paws? *w*)

I got it on my birthday this year from Char-char but I never wore it because it wasn’t cold enough for it. Now it definitely is! I can just wrap the paws around my neck and I have a really fluffy (and super soft) scarf :’3

I have a little time left now before school so see ya!

Make-up of the day: Mommy dear at Christmas dinner

So this is a different type of ‘Make-up of the day’. It’s not my make-up I’ve done but my mother’s :D

She’s going to a Christmas dinner with her work and she asked me last night to braid her hair and today she wanted me to do her makeup. And of course I would never say no! ^^

This is the end result:

DSC_0072

Oh mommy dear you know you’re still number one

And girls just wanna have fun.

Oh girls just wanna have fun.

(I did intentionally alter the lyrics in Cindy Lauper’s “Girls just wanna have fun” ^^)

Hope you enjoyed!

Change of plans.

So I went to the supermarket but I didn’t find the color I wanted:

Schwarzkopf brilliance in color Ultraviolet

Instead I chose:

Syoss in Intense red

I have never colored the whole hair red before but I’ve had red highlights.

Result:

It isn’t dry yet but I suppose that it won’t be that much of a difference ;D

IT’S SO NICE… I FEEL LIKE SHAUN MORGAN X’3

(Btw, I’ll be watching Seether live in 30 days!)

My hurr needed it!

I think that my hair was the perfect length but as always I was bored with it so I just had to trim it a bit (and I think that it was a little too worn) >w<

Now, I cut it with a side parting and not my usual parting in the middle (but I still have my usual bang).

20120721-121104.jpg

And also the hair around my ears are a bitch because it gets stuck under my glasses so I shaved it a liiittle :320120721-121517.jpgI still need to make my ends less straight though~

R E A L L Y?

It’s Saturday… I doesn’t feel like it. At all.

I have a headache because it’s really stuffy inside, so I moved outside. Got Shaun Morgan (and Tora) as company. ♡

Been thinking of cutting myself a hime cut… but I think I want to let my hair grow just a liiiittle more first.

Well the tongue inside my mouth is not for sale
Any spirit left in me is fading fast
Could you throw another stone to ease my pain?
Could you throw another stone to seal my fate?
‘Cause I didn’t believe in this world anymore, anymore

I don’t believe in me

– Tongue, Seether.
