New Year Hair: Short And Sassy

The new year is coming, and with a new year, a new style follows. 
Hair is something you can try to copy, make it look different, or not care about it. No matter what, there aren't two kind of hairdos that are exactly the same - unless you are going down a catwalk with fake hair that is more expensive, than most of our closets of course. 

This year I want to try something new. Actually I wanted to try something new with my hair last year, but didn't really go through it. So it has got to be this year. 
My hair is long and has been for a good while now. I have tried long hairdo, semi long hairdo and semi short hairdo (hair to the under the ear), but never tried really boy short hairdo. 

If I do say so myself, I have done my research pretty damn good! I mean, it has been a year since I decided that I wanted short hair.

I am not quite sure with the detail yet, but here are some of the styles I do like.

Halle Berry has short hair, but still long enough to have behind her ear.
Keira Knighley has the same hair as Halle Berry, apart from the sides, where it is a bit shorter.
Anne Hathaway has a more feminine haircut, because her forehead is covered. 

So there you have it. It is not my new year's resolution, but simply something I want to do. 

Do you have a new year's resolution, or a thing or two you want to do? Maybe you are cutting your hair as well. No matter what, I wish you the best of luck. 
And if you are going for the haircut, remember it is only hair. Do not take your hair or you life too seriously. 

As Nike says; Just do it.

Santa What

Warm chocolate, long hugs, wrapping paper, and lots of traditions.
Christmas is here, and it feels absolutely wonderful.

Something about Christmas makes everything seem magical.
Maybe it is the feeling you get when you open the presents.
Maybe it is your family getting together and celebrating.
Maybe it is all the food, where the next thing taste better than the last.
Maybe it is the music blasting 'it is the most wonderful time of the year'.

Or perhaps, it might be all of them mixed together.

But Christmas is not Christmas without our beloved Santa Claus.
Or Santa Uncle, Santa Father or Santa Mom.

I like to believe that there is more between heaven and earth, than we can see.
So do not stop believing in Santa. He might be around the corner, especially if you live on the North Pole.
If you do not believe in my theory, at least tell the children you do so.

Because the best childhood memories got to be with Santa Claus, or whichever Santa you are with.

Merry Christmas

Questions For The Soul, Not The Brain.

Questions that we should not ask others but our self.

It took me a while to answer, and I am still not sure which answers I would pick.

*Most of these questions come from marcandangel

1. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
2. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
3. Would you break the law to save a loved one?
4. If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?
5. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
6. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
7. Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset?  Does it really matter now?
8. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
9. When you think about all the things you have experienced, and all the people around you, would you want to be someone else? 
10. If you let you friend speak to you, the way you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you let them be your friend? 

Hope it made you thing a bit, and hopefully also realize, that the best person you can be is yourself. As an old quote says; Be yourself because everyone else is already taken.

Love Is The Only Thing I Wish For, Nearly..

It is the 1st of December, and it means Christmas is nearly here. The counting up till Christmas is excited, and making my home Christmasy is something I love. But opening presents and seeing the people I love opening presents is the best.

I began my wish list when it was still warm, and the sun would still shine all day long. Maybe because I was all Christmas happy, or because my birthday is a month after Christmas, so I can’t wish for anything in the summer.  
Anyway, my wish list is finish now, and I thought I would share my favorite pieces it with you guys, so those how are not as Christmas ready as me, can get some inspiration.

But before you read, remember that people are more important than any present.

Finding someone to wake up to, is better than finding something to wake up to.

But finding something to wake up to can be exiting as well. 

Frends Rose Gold Headphones is a dream. They has been on everyone’s google-search the last couple of months. The headphones are expensive, but with the quality and look there is nothing to complain about.

Humans Of New York Book is what it claim to be; a book filled with pictures and story's of people from New York. If you have not heard about the name before, I would sequester you to find the page on Facebook.

Tanya Burr Lip Gloss is beautiful shades with good pigment and packaging. They are as the name says from the famous youtube Tanya Burr and have both deep reds and nude colors.  

Lorac Pro Palette is beaufiful, has the quality and is surprisingly not expensive. I know it has been over a year since this came out, and I have wanted it for so long, so now is the time. If you are late on the makeup trend like me, than do yourself a favor and add this to you wish list. You will not regret it.

Before I say goodbye for this time, remember love is the best present you can get and give away.
