13 REASONS WHY REVIEW:

If you don’t know what to watch on your summer holiday, or summer evenings, let me suggest this series “13 reasons why“. It’s a show aimed at young adults, but honestly, you can watch it at any age. It is entertaining from beginning to end, and I think the story really shook the world, as it is a subject that is rather touchy.

General Information

Cast: Katherine Langford, Dylan Minette & more
Director: Tom McCarthy (and more..)
Duration: About 55 minutes pr. episode
Watch it here: Netflix 

So what is 13 Reasons Why about?

The story is about Hannah Baker, a high school student at Liberty High School, who  shortly before the beginning of the series committed suicide. We then meet Clay, who was somewhat infatuated with Hannah. One morning when Clay comes home from school, he finds a package waiting for him. He opens the package and finds a box of cassette tapes.  They are from Hannah. And she wants him to listen to all of them, if he wants to understand why she decided to take her own life. And so the story unfolds.

Watch it if

You want to learn a bit more about depression, suicide and the effect social media can have on young adults and teenagers. I grew up without social media, “all” we had in my early teens were emails, msn messenger, and other ‘chat’ rooms. We didn’t have Instagram, or Snapchat – and I can truly understand that in some cases it can be really hard to navigate through all that. Especially because bullies can now hide behind a screen and be everywhere, all the time. Anyway, I think it’s an interesting subject and if you do too – you’ll like this show.

 

I’d rate this: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 8/10

Origins Ginzing Review & Giveaway

If you have followed my blog for a while, you’ll know I’m a fan of the brand Origins! I currently have about five Origins products in my bathroom. A lot of them are masks, but this year the Ginzing moisturizer sneaked in too. There was actually a time where I didn’t love the Ginzing series, but I think my skin simply didn’t fit ‘it’ at the point. Today I am really liking the Ginzing ultra-hydrating energy-boosting cream. It also works well with my current serum ‘Truth Serum’, which is by Ole Henriksen. Anyway, let me tell you a bit about this lovely moisturizer. Because, it is honestly rather lovely. 

When My Grandma Turned 80

…She booked a room at a lovely café with a gorgeous view.

I won’t write a whole lot here but instead let the photos speak for themselves. I do want to say how much I love my grandma, and how much she means to me. Because she means the absolute world to me, and she has taught me so much throughout the years. I have countless of fun memories with her, and I was so happy to be able to celebrate her 80th birthday. Jeg elsker dig mormor <3

Aurelia Botanical Cream Deodorant Review

I was a bit taken aback with all the raving positive reviews on this cream deodorant, that I wasn’t sure what to believe. Then my favorite skincare gurus started talking about it, and I knew I had to at least give Aurelia a chance. I then put it on my wishlist for Christmas, and was lucky enough to get it!

Twenty-Eight

The last couple of year’s I’ve only invited my very nearest family to my place for some cake(s) and other goodies. I sometimes wish I had a bigger apartment so I could invite some friends and more of my family at the same time too. Because as it is right now I just don’t have room for that many people. Perhaps in a few years time I’ll get a bigger place 😀 This time around (last year in October) I decided to have a low-key day. I spent it at my internship and afterwards I met my dad, bonusmom, sister and my boyfriend Matt at Hard Rock Cafe in Copenhagen.

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Liner in Pink Venus

There is actually a funny story behind how I ended up with this lip liner,
because I didn’t intend to buy it at all!

I was in England over Christmas and New Year 2017/2018. On one of the days, during my stay with Matt’s family, we all went to the Trafford center just outside Manchester. The Trafford Center is a huge shopping mall, in case you didn’t know, and they have a Selfridges there – which has a Charlotte Tilbury counter! I went to the counter and a lovely salesgirl approached me. I told her I was on the look for a new foundation, a new brow product and the lip liner ‘Pillow talk’. I tried out the other items and then I tried the lip liner I wanted. They didn’t have the foundation in stock, so I decided just to buy my brow product and the lip liner. However, when I came home and opened my new lip liner it turned out to be the Charlotte Tilbury lip liner in Pink Venus! I was actually rather upset at first because I really wanted the pillowtalk one… Then I decided to just give Pink Venus a shot, and I’m glad I did. Because it is a very lovely shade, and I’ve grown rather fond of it.
