Summer Favourites

This summer has gone by so fast and I can hardly believe I go back to school in two weeks.
Over the summer I've tried a few new things and worked quite a lot. In this post I'm going to show you some of the things I've been enjoying this summer.

I've mentioned Burt's Bees before and I simply love their products. When I went to Massachusetts in May I found a new lip balm scent from them that isn't available in Iceland. This is now my favourite along with the peppermint one.

This scent is just lovely. It's not too heavy and it literally smells like the beach and coconuts, love it!

I've had a few bottles of Batiste's dry shampoos and I've quite liked them all but not always the scent. This one however is very nice and it's not too strong either.

I've finally started reading Harry Potter and holy these books are so good I can't stop reading. I started this summer and I'm about to finish The Order Of The Phoenix now. I loved the films when I watched them a few years ago but the books were never available at the library so I kept postponing it. Now, however, I decided just to buy them all in paperback. I've also become such a nerd, like I often do when I really like a book series, I've taken all the Pottermore quizzes and it's just so much fun!

I've tried a few face masks and none of them have been absolutely right for my skin but this mask is simply wonderful!

Have nearly not worn any other shoes since I got these. They're so comfortable and I really like the way they look as well.

Aerie and PINK underwear
This is quite a funny thing to put in a favourites but when I went to The USA I bought a lot of underwear since it's a lot cheaper there and both Aerie and PINK have great deals. All the underwear I bought is so comfortable and looks good!

I normally just drink water or smoothies all the time this was a big deal for me this summer. Last year I started working at coffee place and started tasting coffee now and then and now I quite like it.  I think Iced lattes are soooo good and refreshing in the summer heat.

I had been looking all over for cute little earrings and Francesca's had everything I needed. I couldn't find the hoops online but I found the diamond shaped ones. ;)

I hope you liked this post and will like the same things as me.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Beach Day '17

Well at least we got to see the sun... 
This year's summer has honestly been dreadful haha. We have gotten 4 sunny days here in Reykjavik, 4! It has literally rained all summer. Last Monday though (a week ago) the weather was wonderful, so naturally we went to the beach. Icelandic beaches are almost all pitch black and aren't really beachy-beaches if you know what I mean. However, we went to a beach I had never been to before and there was a cafe by it as well. I had an iced latte, which wasn't actually on the menu but the girl at the counter kindly offered to make it for me since it was so hot! Iced lattes have been my all-time favourite drink this summer since I normally just drink water. 
I had a great time on the beach in the sun and it was probably one of my favourite days so far this summer. My mum, brother and puppy also had a blast! 

What I'm wearing:

Sunglasses: Ray-Ban
Shoes: Vans

Thanks for reading this post I hope you liked it.

Wonderful Wanderlust

Have you ever been on your way to another country or place and you have that special feeling inside of you? It's somehow more than excitement and that is definitely one of my favourite feelings.

Lately I have longed for that feeling and exploring new places. Although I recently came back from the USA I still have more wanderlust than ever. I'm itching to see new things and people. When you come from a country as small as Iceland where you feel like everyone is the same I hope it's only natural for me to have this lust. I feel like it should be required for everyone to travel at least once in your life because I've met people that have never travel led out of the country, or even out of their town and they're just missing out on so much. It's also very growing to see new places and other cultures.

I have also decided that I definitely going to college/university in some other country. I'm currently thinking about England, the US or even Australia. I'm not sure what I want to study but I'll use this year to decide. I'm open to all ideas so if you know of any good schools or want to suggest a random study field, you are more than welcome to leave it in the comments haha.

The Prudential Building - Boston '17
Hayling Island- England '16

Munich '14

Lido Beach - Florida '15

Thanks for reading this post and I hope you can fulfil your wanderlust.
