J U L Y · F A V O U R I T E S

Tønsberg, Norway
Now July is almost over, it's time for a wrap-up of my monthly favourites. I'm gonna try to keep writing this series every single month from now on. Shortly summarized, this monthly wrap-up will be a mix of personal favourites and smalltalk.

First of all, I must share a few important things with you:

  • I implemented Disqus as comment system on my blog since a few days. But I have no idea how to make sure Disqus' comment count actually shows up in the 'comment' count line underneath each post on my homepage. Anyone?
  • After a request on my Facebook page - about if I could please start selling some Babylips Pop Art on Ebay, since Maybelline apparently thought the UK population wasn't suitable for the flavours Lemon Zap and Pina Colada Pow(like wtf? Somebody must have seriously misunderstood the idea of doing proper market research in the UK - or have they only asked the wrong people?) - I can hereby announce that I AM SELLING those flavours on Ebay now. Unfortunately, Norway isn't the right country to purchase from if you search for a reasonable price - so I had to put the price up a bit in order to make it worth it for me to sell them. No idea if anything of this is even legal - but then again - I'd just advise Maybelline to do better market research the next time. :)
  • I am glad to tell you that JT and I finally found ourselves an apartment in the middle of Oslo city. The apartment itself is tiny, but the location could not have been better - as it's a prime spot between the National Theatre and the Royal palace. Out of all people interested in renting the place, they decided to choose us - and we couldn't be blessed more. So, in a month from now, we will be doing urban living! 

My Thoughts on Tuesday Bassen vs. Zara

Tønsberg, Norway

 
You’ve probably seen the above picture somewhere on social media already. I posted it on my Instagram as well. On the left you see  pins designed by Tuesday Bassen – on the right Zara’s stolen copy.

Tuesday Bassen
Before about two/three days ago, you’ve probably never even heard of Tuesday Bassen ever in your life. I hadn’t either. I came across her profile on instagram, where she posted this picture. It caught my attention and I decided to look deeper into it.

Review Babylips Popart

Tønsberg, Norway

Recently I came across these cute Babylips Popart lipbalms in the H&M store here. Anyone who knows me a little bit, knows that I am an absolute lipbalm addict, and therefore I couldn't resist taking these ones home with me. 
The Babylips Popart come in five different flavours: Lemon Zap, Blueberry Boom, Grapefruit Zing, Pina Colada Pow and Bubblegum Pop. However, I only bought four of them - as the Bubblegum Pop one is pink, and I already have two pink Babylips in my collection which I barely use. 

Hurray Ilse Daniëlle = 2 years!! + Mini Giveaway

Hello lovelies,

Honeymoon Photodiary

Armação de Pêra, Portugal

Our honeymoon went to Portugal. Ten days Algarve, and two days in Lisboa. We stayed at a lush resort where everything was pure luxury. There's not much to tell - as we literally did nothing but relax at the pools and beach, order food, do shopping and watch football on most of the days. My cold had gotten worse.

Halfway the wedding ceremony, my ear popped and wouldn't open anymore - which made me deaf for the rest of the day and the days after. After landing in Lisboa, my other ear also popped - and I had my ears closed on the entire honeymoon. I suspect it being all the stress relieved after the wedding that caused the illness on vacation.
