DIY closet door knobs

I finally got these crystal knobs for our bedroom closets. When we moved in here there were only these boring white ones from IKEA and I’ve thought about making it a bit more classy for a while now. I browsed through the web and found these from an interior store. You can find all kinds of unnecessary stuff there but also some really cute bits and bobs.

I love how the light catches the sparkles – it makes the whole room get a bit more class. You can find them here: Diamond knobs

Simple changes like these make my day. You don’t always have to invest in a whole new closet to get a new look.

Little things

Don’t lose your self respect

self-respect
noun |
self-re·spect | self-ri-ˈspekt |
a proper respect for oneself as a human being


Don’t dress up to seek the admiration of other people.
The glances and looks or even stares.
Do you really want this?
You say you want respect but how can you get it,
when all you do is showing your beauty to the outside world for recognition.
You say you want to fall in love with your mind but you only display our body.

My daily make-up

I recently purchased some new make-up because I’m desperately trying to find the right kind of brand and shade for my skin tone. I am very fair skinned so finding something that suits me is quite difficult since almost all the foundations or concealers I’ve tried are always too dark.

I went to H&M not planning on buying anything but walked out with three new make-up products. All of them are actually meant for concealing but I’ve used them for highlighting and as a full face foundation. I thought I’d do a little review and also show you what my go-to make-up look is.


I had heard so much good things about Maybelines Anti-Age concealer and was so happy when I finally found one cause I’ve been looking for ages. I was a little disappointed when I only found two shades but I immediately took lightest one, hoping that this would in deed be light enough. I love how creamy it feels and how easy it is to apply on my skin. The only negative thing is the color. For me this is not light enough and almost looks like a sand tone on my skin. I can definitely not use this as a concealer under my eyes, but instead I use it on my forehead, my nose, chin and the bottom part of my checks.

The second concealed I bough was NYX Sculpt & Highlight Face Duo. I was pleasantly surprised when I tested this on my skin. The highlighting part is light enough for me to use under my eyes and the dark part, which at first looked too dark, is perfect to sculpt your face. A little goes a long way, and I usually use this on my cheekbones and on both sides of my nose to contour.

Lastly I bought Sleek Correct & Concealer Palette. I actually though I bought the one on the packaging but when I opened it there where too light creamy concealers and one in a powder format. Powder does not work on my skin cause it only makes me look even more dry so I was left with the other two. The lightest one, on the left, I use as a highlighter down my nose and over my upper lip. And the one in the middle I use on the corner of my eyes to cover up any redness, or even a little bit under my eyes as well if I look extremely tired. Overall, this palette is fine, I love the creamy texture, but they should have labeled it better so that you know what you are buying. I don’t really have a lot of use for it, but I guess it’s handy to take with you on the go or when you need to cover up any spots or redness.

I finish of with INGLOT Make-up Fixer (read review here) and a little mascara and I’m good to go. I hope this was somewhat beneficial for those of you looking for the right kind of make-up brand for you.

Little things

Be original

The world tells you to be yourself
but when you do they turn their back on you.
Everyone wants to be original but no one dares to stand out.
So stop defining yourself through the worlds eyes.
Look in the mirror. Your reflection should represent yourself.
Don’t dress up for admiration or seek applause for you good actions.
The world doesn’t have the right to tell you who you should be, neither judge you or define you.

New make-up video

Yes, it has stopped snowing! Waking up and only seeing white outside your window is the worst, especially since the snow finally started to melt the last couple of weeks. Now we’re back at it again, and it’s March and stuff. I guess we’ve gotta wait for spring a little longer.


I finally released a new video on YouTube and it’s my go-to make-up whenever I’m in a rush, which is like every single day. I usually don’t were make-up as often as I did before, just because I don’t want to get used to only seeing my face fully made up and not liking how I actually look. I see so many girls that hate to go outside their own home without mascara or blush, and it’s not supposed to be that way. Make-up should be fun and artistic, and not a daily need for it.

I wil hopefully also shoot and release a review of the products used in the video above. Have a lovely Wednesday. Only two more days till the weekend!
