January favorties

Essie "rock at the top" - There is nothing more festive than a sparkly nail polish, and even though christmas was, sadly, over I couldn´t stop using this one from essie. The glitter is very well packed so it doesn´t take ages for some sparkly payoff and it´s just so pretty with the gold color and goes perfect with the darker colors I wear during these months but also on lighter colors where it looks a bit more silver.

The body shop cocao body butter - Omg there are no words in this world to describe how much i love the smell of this body butter. It´s just so winter like with just the right amount of chocolaty goodness. The formula is, as with all the body shop butters, very moisturising and leaves my skin feeling so hydrated which is important during th colder months. This is my second jar of this scent and I was very happy when my sister gave it t me for christmas.
Nivea lip butter in "blueberry blush" - I´m a huge fan of the nivea lip butters and I use my raspberry one every single night before i go to bed. Or I used to. Now I use this one every single night and also a lot during the day. It´s just as hydrating, if not more, than my other two and this one doesn´t leave a white cast over my lips like my raspberry one. And it smells amazing. So A+.
Maxfactor color elixir giant pen in "subtle coral 20" - My go to lip product for this month. You don´t need a mirror to apply it and it´s a really nice nude color that isn´t just pink och brown. It has a slight shine to it but is not sparkly which I was happy about. And it´s drugstore so you don´t break the bank. There are a few colors in the line so i´m going to try out some more.
Scarf from Lindex - Me and my mum found this scarf on sale and it was so pretty I just had to have it. (thanks mum!) It´s so soft and really big which is great because I like them to be huge so I can use them as a blanket at cinemas or if i´m just cold. The pattern makes it more fun than if it was just white (or black, let´s just be honest, I where a lot of black) but it still goes with all of my outfits so I use it every single day. And I loved it even more when I missed my train and had to wait outside in -2 degrees for 28 minutes.
The ballroom class by Lucy Dillon - "The three couples joining the ballroom class for different reasons. Lauren, who dreams about a fairytale wedding, Bridget who has a perfect marrige but is keeping a secret that can ruin everything and Katie & Ross who are trying to save their marrige and find the spark again." This is the fourth book I read by this author and I love her way of writing so much. She really has a way of making you feel like you know all the characters and they are your friends, or enemies, and you just want to keep reading. 
Fringe - "A television drama centered around a female FBI agent who is forced to work with an institutionalized scientist in order to rationalize a brewing storm of unexplained phenomena." I have a thing for really weird tv shows and this one was right up my alley. It´s really interesting, and disgusting, and creepy but I couldn´t stop watching it. I love Peter, I want to marry him. There is something so hot about a guy with a brain, and he is really cute. If you´re a fan of the weirder tv shows with unnatural things then this one is for you.

"The first thing Sophia Amaruso sold online wasn´t fashion - it was a stolen book. She spent her teens stealing things, jumping from job to job and dumpster diving. But when she was twenty two she started her ebay company Nasty gal that would, eight years later, become a $100 million plus online fashion retailer. She is the definition of a #Girlboss."
I got this book for christmas from my sister and I was so excited to read it. Not only because it is a book (i´m a hard-core reader) but because I have heard so much about Sophia and of course, Nasty gal. And it did not disappoint. The story she tells you feels personal, like she is a friend and tells you all about her childhood and her adventures. She keeps it real but funny and you can not not like her. It´s really inspiring the way she started and where she ended up, but she makes it clear that she worked hard for it and success doesn´t just jump in front of you.She also gives you great advice for starting your own career and doing what you love and not letting someone else boss you around. (No one can boss a #girlboss!)
To get to the point, I loved it and I definitely recomend this book, even if you don´t think you would like it because it´s amazing. I read it in just a couple of days because it´s a real page turner. And when you are done reading it, it´s a very pretty decoration for your bookshelf.

goals for 2015

I think it´s important to set goals for yourself. It can be small ones for every week or bigger ones for the year to come. And because I like to read about other peoples life goals I thought I would share mine with you.
Getting fit ~ I know this is the goal for everyone after new years eve. But i started before in 2014 for the last few months so I think it´s a bit different. I want to be healthy but not overkill, I don´t belive in diets or forcing yourself to eat healthy 24/7 for 365 days. It never works and it´s not really living. So my goal is more like this: Eat relativly healthy but eat chips or so sometimes and workout a few times a week. I think it´s easier to keep doing it if it´s not to much a change than what you´re already doing. 
Up my blogging game ~ I admit, I have been a bit lazy when it comes to my blog so this year I want to be better and that starts with a couple of blog posts a week and then we´ll see how it goes, i´m excited to see how this year will turn out!
Eat better ~ I suck at eating! I seem to be the only person on earth that doesn´t love food! I eat dinner and breakfast, when I remember to, but I almost never eat lunch and something in between has never been heard of. But this year I have to be better at this, especialy because i´m working out and because it´s good to eat. So my goals are to remember to eat lunch (and almond milk with granola doesn´t count!), eat sometime small, like a bar, after workouts and drink more water.
Be happier ~ Now this one is not only hard to achive but also very personal! I have not been feeling great for the last few years but I hope this year will be better, and even if that doesn´t mean i´m happy everyday I at least hope I will be happy for most of them and not cry as often as I did last year. I´m going to workout, which helps, be with people I love and do fun things. It won´t be easy but it have to work, so lets try.
Take a photo every day ~ I love to take photos but I sometimes forget to, even though I have a great camera and a lot of time. So my goal for this year, which I have already started, is to take a minimum of one photo/day. This is part of a bigger goal which is to be more creative, I want to draw more and continue with my inspiration book. I think being creative will also be good for my previous goal, being happy, so they all come together.
Save money ~ Wow, this is a hard one. I don´t know why but i´m so bad at this. I have a friend who is so good at this and it makes me so jealous because I want to be able to do it to. And this year is the year when it will happen (probably). I won´t start to big but maybe £20 every month will be a good start. (I´m a student so I only have about £85 every month.) I think it helps if I have something I want to do with them so a couple of things is going do England and getting a new tattoo. I have started saving and so far so good.
Let´s do this!
