Colorful wall decor

I got this idea about a year ago and made an inner promise to myself that I wanted to finish it before this year is over. Never did I think that I would spend the last bits of summer trying to be a painter.

I bought some watercolor, which I’ve never used before, 3 canvases and some brushes. The first time around I actually managed to buy the wrong type of brushes which were not meant for watercolor. And getting the design onto the canvas was a whole different problem but with some good help from my talented friend we managed it.

First we scathed out the wanted design onto a piece of paper drawing lines horizontal and vertical. These same lines were also drawn onto the canvas so that it would be easier to copy it.


The biggest painting took me quite a long while to finish but I also took a week break in between. Taking a step back and not getting to sucked into your project is the key to any masterpiece. And then you can come back with fresh eyes and a new look on things.

I’m so happy with the end result, especially of the world map. This can cost up to 100 dollars online but making it yourself definitely gives you a greater appreciation of the artwork.

The paint job on the two pieces down below went relatively easy since it was a smaller canvas and not too many colors to work with.

Smashbox photo finish

It’s time for another review, and this time I’ll be sharing my thoughts on Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. I bought this a while back at ‘Kicks’ cause I’ve been struggling with redness almost all my life, or at least since I was a teenager. It hasn’t really gone even though I use high-end skincare products daily.

I was happy to have found a primer that had a green tone to it because this, as I’m sure you know, is the complimentary color to red. Which basically means that those two colors putt together should even out my skin tone. I bought this for 260 kr, so my hopes where high.


First of the consistency is uneven and when I work it in my hands it gets clumpy and almost feels watery. Additionally I have to use a lot to even out the color of my skin, and to be honest in the end I can’t see any difference. I also noticed when I first started using this product that whenever I didn’t clean my skin afterwards, I would break out and get spots where I applied it. This usually doesn’t happen with any make-up that I’ve tried.

As you can see there is hardly any difference, if any at all. This products is an absolute waist of money and it’s safe to say I will not buy this again.
