Busy, Busy, Busy!

What a busy week! I've had so much schoolwork this week and just everything has been happening.

On Monday I went to work (I work in a grocery store) and studied for a physics exam.
Then on Tuesday I studied more for the exam and went to a school presentation (because I'm choosing schools for next semester ).
On Wednesday I took the exam, and did well - I hope. After school I went to the dentist, then I went to take same pictures for a photography project and then I studied for a math exam. After that I went to a dodgeball tournament in school and my team got second place.
Thursday I got to visit the university hospital of Iceland with a few kids from my school and a few people who work in the hospital came and told us how it is to work there etc. We also got to see people perform a heart surgery! Well we didn't see the heart itself but we saw all the doctors. But we did get to see an eye surgery on a screen which was really interesting. This whole trip was really fascinating especially since I would maybe like to become a doctor in the future. After school I was working on a political party presentation we had in school on Friday and I also studied.
On Friday I had the political party presentation and the math exam and both went quite well. Annnnd last but not least I am now on a ca. two week easter holiday whooop! And there are only four days until I go to England to visit my great gran. She lives in a small village called Liphook. I will also spend two days in Brighton which is one of my favourite cities. I love the south coast of England, it's so nice being by the sea and the fresh air. :)) Here are pictures from Brighton when I spent a day there last year (which was way too short :( ).

Sorry for this short and maybe-boring post, I just wanted to share this busy week with you all. I hope you liked it anyways and be sure to leave a comment and tel me what you would like to do in the future.

Love, Stella xx

My Favourite Beauty Products

For this post I wanted to share with you my favourite beauty products. Some are a bit pricey but others are quite cheap and the value is also good.  I also want to apologise for the change of background in the photos, I was at my mum's when I took some and at my dad's when I took the others.   

Naked Eyeshadow Palette by Urban Decay
This palette is quite pricey but I'd say it's worth it! The palette contains various shades from nude to dark smokey shades. The shades are also very pigmented, which I love. There is one downside to these shades though. If I don't wear a primer they tend to crease and rub off. It does come with a pack of primer testers that do come in handy. The palette also comes with a two-sided brush.

I've had a few mascaras from Maybelline before and both of them were just OK but this one, WOW! It's so good and it makes your eyelashes look so pretty. I wear it almost every day I like it so much.

I got these cute little palettes from Sephora for Christmas last year and they are sooo good! They both have matte and pigmented shades, and are so easy to travel with!

Wish N°1 Be a Celebrity

Wish N°2 Be A Role Model

Wish N°3 Be A Rockstar

N°4 Be A Hero

N°5 Be A Queen

I just purchased this brow pencil about a month ago and I quite like it. It does keep my brows better in place and it gives them a more colour but I think the pencil goes out too fast, I keep sharpening it. But other than that it's pretty good for the price. (in the colour dark blonde).

This liquid liner is great, both for beginners and people with more experience. It doesn't smudge at all and it dries instantly. Really recommend this liner! 

A cheap powder that's quite good for the price. I feel like rimmel has great products. I have some lipsticks and they're also great! Really want to try their Wake Me Up Foundation. (transparent)

The best concealer I've ever had, it's both cheap and works wonders! All I can say is that this concealer is really good! (Lightest shade)
(Sorry, the letters on the packaging have rubbed off).

I purchased this concealer in December and have been using it almost every day since then. I quite like it, but not as much as the one I mentioned before. I feel like it works best on the bags under my eyes and it does conceal quite well. Might repurchase it. (Lightest colour)

This Lip Balm has saved me the past month! The Blistex lip balms are the best ones on the market I think ( Burt's Bees are also good), at least the basic ones like DCT, Lip Medex, etc. If you don't have a Blistex lip balm and you have sore or dry lips, run out and get one! They are very affordable and they are so good! (again the basic ones are very good but the flavoured ones aren't as good).

Well that's all for this blogpost, I hope you liked it, and comment below your favourites or if you have any of these products. <3

A Friend I Can't Wait To Meet - Pt. 2

Hello everyone,
I'd like to apologise in advance for such a ramble-y post but oh well.

If you've been reading my blog for a while now, which I doubt anyone has, then you might have seen my blogpost, A Friend I Can't Wait To Meet. In that blogpost I talk about how I don't really have a best friend and how I feel like I'm an outsider etc. (If you want to check it out you can just click the link ^ ).
Well for the past few days I've been feeling even more that no one likes me and that I'm weird or something, because it's like either no one wants to talk to me or when I say something they look at me strangely. I don't know if this is all in my head but it's making me feel down. Of course people talk to me and I have friends but I feel like I can't always be myself because, well I can't really explain why. Like yesterday I was at a birthday party and everyone had one good friend who they were dancing with and laughing but I was the only one who didn't have that friend and it made me feel sad. The girl who was hosting the party has been my friend since we were about two years old and I guess I would consider her my best friend and I'm one of hers, but she has so many other best friends who she is always with so we don't hang out that often.
Also at that birthday party I was talking to two of my friends and I said something about that I had already signed up for the school I wanted to go to (we have to apply to go to "high school" and not everyone gets in, it's kind of like college) and my friend instantly said: "well good for you", in a very mocking tone like she was dissing me or something. I don't know, maybe I'm overreacting but it made me upset and I just felt like writing all of this down.

Sorry for the down-feeling blogpost but I hope you liked it and let me know if you can relate. <3

The Liebster Award

The Liebster Award is a great way to explore new blogs and get to know other bloggers that have less than 1000 readers. I just heard of this tag yesterday (lol) but I still think it's so fun already! 
I was nominated by Laila, thank you!

If you get tagged this is what you should do:
  • Attach the Liebster Award photo to you blogpost
  • Link back to the person who tagged you
  • Answer the 11 questions
  • Tag a few bloggers that have less than 1000 readers
  • Ask them 11 questions
  • Let them know you tagged them

Here my the answers to the 11 questions:

1. Have you ever been an awkward situation with a friend? Yes probably at some point hahah but nothing specific comes to mind.

2. What's your favourite book/s? Hmmm this is a hard one I love so many books but I would probably have to say, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower (really recommend that book!), Girl online, The Hunger Games annnndddd I did quite enjoy reading The Fault Our Stars.

3. What do you really want to do/accomplish? I think I'd have to say: to be happy, to travel around the world and have a job I enjoy.

4. What is your idea of the perfect evening?  Either hanging around with my friends, watching a movie etc. or spending the night with my dad, going out for a ride, like a week ago we drove a little out of the city to see if we could see any northern lights. And then we also sometimes watch movies like the other day we watched Ferris Bueller's Day Off and laughed our faces off. :)

5. If you were a superhero, what power would you have? Hmm not sure if this counts as being a superhero but would loooove to be a wizard- like Harry Potter! But if I would have to have a typical superhero power I would have to say either being able to breathe in water, flying, or having the same powers as spiderman. 

6.  Do you have any talents/skills? (I'm sure you do!) Erm, I guess I'm quite smart? And I can take nice photographs.

7. What's your favourite colour? I can't really choose, I think it depends on my mood.

8. Do you have your own Apple/Android product? Yes I have an iPhone 4 and a MacBook air 11'. I also have an iPod shuffle, the first generation, which I saved up for when I was seven and an iPod touch 4 that I bought when I was twelve, but I don't use those a lot any more.

9. What inspired you to blog? (Sneaky stolen question!) Hmm I wanted to share my feelings and opinion with people around the world instead of just writing it in a diary. I also wanted to share my photos with the internet. :))

10. What's your favourite chocolate/sweet? That's a hard one, they're all so good! But I think my favourite chocolate bar is √ěristur, which is an Icelandic chocolate bar that contains milk chocolate, some kind of caramel (not liquid but not toffee either), and liquorice. 

11. How do you relax? That depends on the situation, if I'm having an anxiety attack (yeah I have anxiety :/) I think about positive things and happy memories, but if I´m just relaxing at home I maybe take a shower/bath and just chill.

Here are my questions for you:

1. What is your favourite food?
2. Where/What is your happy place?
3. Why did you start blogging? 
4. What do you love most about your country?
5. If you were a superhero, what power would you have? (stolen question hehe)
6. What is your favourite kind of holiday? (as in beach holiday, city, country, etc.)
7. What kind of phone do you have? (if you have one)
8. If you were an animal, what animal would you be?
9. Do you have a crush on someone? 
10. What is your favourite social media site?
11. Favourite film/s? 

Thank you for reading this blogpost. <3
