Love Yourself, Respect Yourself, Value Yourself & Always Choose You

I’m so tired of seeing men and women put themselves through emotional stress. I know that we all believe that people can change; however that’s not your decision to make for them. We all have our bad habits, some can … Continue reading

Product Review Thursday – L.A Girl Pro Conceal High-definition Concealer

Nicole's Beauty Blog

Today’s “Product review Thursday” will be about the super hyped L.A Girl Pro Conceal High-definition concealers. This product is not available in Sweden nor in Europe, I ordered mine from http://www.beautyjoint.com which is an American website. I must start by saying that I am soo happy I ordered these concealers because they are amazing and some of my favourite concealers.

There are 20 different shades and I decided to get 5 shades; Classic Ivory, Creamy Beige, Warm Sand, Cool Tan and Fawn (see picture).The coverage of these concealers are medium but are buildable for a fuller coverage. I personally like my concealers to have a full coverage, so I tend to apply a generous amount of the concealer. I have seen reviews that compare these concealers to MAC’s Pro Longwear concealer. I have the Pro Longwear concealer from MAC (which I love btw) and when comparing the two I feel…

Falling in love

Palimpsest

You never see your loved one’s flaws. You fall in love too quickly, in a rush of delight at finding such a person, a burst of wonder that, in all this wide and fragile world, there exists a mind just like your own. Before long, they have settled down inside of you, in the vulnerable parts of your chest. Any doubt, any flaw, is drowned out by the rhythmic thump of a voice that says you are not alone.

It’s like that with books.

There are so many books, so many writers I could tell you about, which would make me look clever, or deep, or wise. But let’s be honest with each other for a moment: those are not the books which live within you. The books you fall in love with are the books with flaws. They are the books you devoured late at night under the sheets…

Why I’m Not “Good People”

Jenny's Library

I’m not a nice person.

I’m not a good person.

I’m not a kind person.

This isn’t to say that I don’t ever try to be any of these three things.  I do, especially the last two.

It’s more to say that, for me, surviving in this cissexist, racist, ableist, heteronormative, classist, often fucked up world of ours has involved rejecting the idea that “good” and “bad” are static states of being.  I will never be a “good person” because, to me, “good” is not something that you achieve.  It’s an ongoing process that never ends.

It is, in fact, almost impossible not to be doing bad things as well as good when you are human and therefore flawed.  Especially when you are part of a messed up system, as we all are.

This, to me, is why it’s important to call out bad behavior, or hurtful language, or even…

Appreciation of beauty

Inspiration MYCreation

Appreciation of beautyAppreciation of beautyAppreciation of beautyAppreciation of beautyI’ve been collecting modern studio silver jewelry for some years now. At first I was strongly drawn to some of the Danish and Scandinavian jewelry designers; through my research I discovered American modernist studio jewelry and fell in love quickly.  I decided to write about this kind of jewelry although information for some of the more vintage/rare pieces is not easy. Designer marks can be quite difficult to find/research which is why I’ve decided long ago to not focus on the marks and designer and focus more on aesthetic and detail
