Rating: ★★★★★☆ 5/6 stars

While I was in New York I visited a LUSH store and omg! It’s heaven, all the delicious scents and colours. It’s making you want to get it all and the staff is super helpful and sweet. So if you’re ever in NYC, visit the store that’s located near Macy’s and Empire State Bulding!

My lips have a tendency to produce more cells than normal and it gives them a dry, chapped look even though they are baby soft. I went into lush and ask what they thought I could do about the problem and they recommended that I used a lip scrub twice a week for 2-3 minutes. This is supposed to removed the left over cells and dead skin and prevent my lips from looking dry. I was very sceptical at first, but I got to try their Bubblegum lip scrub and it is heavenly! I noticed a difference just my rubbing it into my lips at the store, so I bought one of them.

So far I’ve used it about 6 times, because I had forgotten about it, but I’ve noticed a major difference in my lips. They look more pink and they look super healthy, no dry look anymore and I’m just so happy that all I had to do was use a lip scrub. What makes it even better is that the LUSH lip scrub is so natural that you can lick your lips after exfoliating, so if you’re in a hurry you’d still have time to use it.

I will say that if you dislike overly sweet scents, then go for one of their other scents, because the bubblegum one is VERY sweet.

Shopping

So yesterday my dad took me and my kiwi friend to Flensburg in Germany. It’s not far from the Danish border, but at least it was still Germany. They had promised rain and awful weather, but it only rained when we we’re driving, so that made the trip all the more fun. I didn’t take any pictures, because Flensburg is not THAT interesting XD We mostly went to show my friend the town and to shop. Flensburg is a wonderful place to shop (just not for your wallet) and they have tons of stuff that we don’t have in Denmark. I think I did the most shopping, but hey I did get a few things from my dad, lol!

Rainbow

I’m obsessed with rainbow hair and make-up looks. To me it just looks so freaking awesome! I wish I could get away with getting rainbow hair, but it would cost me a fortune and would be so hard to take care of afterwards, because some colours fade quicker than others. But maybe I should look into just getting like semi-rainbow hair with 3-4 colours in stead? Hmm it’s at least an option. As for the make-up, I would so do this next time I’m going out or next year at Copenhagen Pride :D

Marilyn Monroe x MAC

So in October (I think) MAC will release a new collection. This collection is inspired by Marilyn Monroe.
As we all know it’s 50 years since she died, which is so sad :/

Well normally I’m not very excited for a new collection from MAC, because lets face it; they put out so many a year that it’s hard to keep track of them all. That said I’m very excited for this. I’m definitely gonna check it out at my local counter and might even treat myself to some stuff, if the pigmentation is good enough.

Anybody else who’s excited for this?

Androgyny

I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s completely obsessed with androgynous people (gender benders) or maybe I am?

Anyways.. I love people who aren’t afraid to show who they are and dress that way, even if that means looking like the opposite sex. It’s a freedom of expression and it has sucked me in so deep that I mostly only notice androgynous people. It’s like “normal” people just doesn’t catch my attention anymore. They just seem so plain and boring compared to androgynous people XD

So my fave androgynous people are:

– Andrej Pejic
– Lee Taemin (from SHINee)
– Bill Kaulitz
– Brian Molko
– Freja Beha
– Azmarie Livingston
– Katherine Moennig

Who’s your fave? If you have one that is :P
