So, after much considering, I've decided to start a new blog, somewhere else. It's kinda hard for me to understand all this Swedish, and I'd like to have a blog on a website where I know how to change the layout myself. I have no idea how to do it here, and I've always had help from my friends.
And if you look back at this blog, I've had months where I posted once, and then not at all. Which I really intend to change. So I'd like a new start, which I'm getting with my new blog. Also, I was getting kind of tired of the scene url to this blog, tvilleturtle. It has absolutely no meaning for me whatsoever, it was just for fun. You can't change your url here, as far as I know.
So after 2½ years on this blog, I'm closing this one down. I will not delete it (since I have no idea how to, yet), I will leave it open, but I will not post here anymore.
Take a look at my new blog - which I've made myself - HERE
Monday I went shopping with Cille
for some winter stuff for Bristol. Sadly, I haven't been home since Sunday, so I haven't had time to post about this before.
I got a few very cheap, very useful and also very lovely stuff! Unfortunately not all what I wanted, but I can live with that. I got what I really needed, and that's what's important.
I also slept at her place, and we had so much fun! We didn't go to bed until 7am or so. We can just keep talking and talking, and I really love that.
Besides that I spent a nice day watching Family Guy and talking with Stine yesterday, and today I spent my day with the lovely Marie
. She'd baked chocolate chip cookies, which were really good! We just ate them, had some soda and talked - and talked and talked. So nice!
All in all I'm very happy at the moment, which people probably can feel, since I'm really bubbly all the time, and I can't stop smilling. I just think my life is great!

So this weekend was basically pretty awesome.
Friday my boyfriend and I got picked up by a taxi and then we drove for like two hours (there were some problems with the traffic at one point) to his dad's house, where we spent the night and most of Saturday. It was really nice to finally meet his dad!
Sunday I went to Ziggy's place. I hadn't seen her in a while, so we had some catching up to do. It was really nice to see her again! We watched some of a movie, but didn't get to finish it before we had to leave. We were going to the movies to watch The Expendables 2 with a bunch of friends - review of the movie will be up later! Then we went back to Ziggy's place, me, her and my bf, and we just chilled until around 1am.
Monday (might not be weekend, but I have to mention this anyway) I went shopping with Cille, which I will tell you all about tomorrow, when I come home. Right now I'm at my bf's place, writing my first ever blogpost from my cell!
All in all I had a really great weekend, and it went by really fast, which only indicates that it was awesome.
Money money money!
Am I the only person who, as soon as I get money, just opens 3000 tabs on the internet to use ALL of my money?? I mean, I think I have a serious problem. Internet shopping.
Seriously, back in August I spent €630.41 ($815.12 - £503.10) on shopping. And that was both internet shopping, shopping in stores and buying food. But mostly internet shopping and food. Which is odd, since I can get food at home. No, not free, I pay for staying home because I'm legally an adult, sigh..
Even now, when I know I have to save as much money as I can, because I have to spend 4 weeks in another country without a chance of making money, I have already pre-ordered Jeffree Star's new vinyl (which was totally worth it btw, since he replied me on Twitter and told me he loves me and that I'm gonna love the vinyl), and I feel like ordering so much more.
And I'm also going to the movies tomorrow (luckily it's cheaper than normally), going shopping Monday, paying for a train ticket to stay at Cille
's place, going to a concert Friday, going to a bar Saturday, going to eat lunch with a friend Thursday and going out on my birthday. Which basically means that I have to spend probably a lot of money on all that stuff.
I'm crossing my fingeres for some money from my family members as my birthday gifts, though, but I have no idea how many I will end up with. I hope I'll have enough to survive in Bristol. And I hope I'll have some left to when I get home, because I have to live for the rest of November.
Review: Lush products.
So when Emma, Cille
and I were in Dublin, we quickly found a Lush store. Actually it was in the beginning of the shopping street, and we had just discovered a Body Shop that we wanted to shop in, but then we turned around and found the Lush shop, so Cille and I of course hurried in there, with Emma right beind us.
And I tell you, if I could, I would've bought the entire freaking store. Instead I ended up with buying four products, which I have already showed you in one of the shopping pictures from Dublin.
So here's a review of one of the products I bought: Mask of Magnaminty. And I must say, I really love it! It's a facemask, and the description says "This peppermint mask does everything it can to fight eruptions and outbreaks and return your skin to tip top condition". And I must say, that it really does good to your skin! It's like you can see a difference the second you wash the mask off your face. It's a really great mask and I will definitely buy new ones every time I run out of it, even though it's really expensive.
Besides making really great products, Lush also fights animal testing of makeup and skincare products, which I personally think is a really good thing. They also make all their pots/tubes/whatever the product comes in are recyclable! And you can even get some vegan products, so there's products for everyone!
Personally I love Lush and I wish we had a store with Lush products in Denmark, but unfortunately we don't. I just hope there'll be one soon, then.
And yes, I will definitely buy a lot more from Lush in the future.
You can buy different Lush products HERE
(just choose your country or the country you want, if yours not on the list), and the Mask of Magnaminty can be bought right HERE
New in: bracelet.
I got this beautiful bracelet from my mom. She has one that matches it, just with other patterns, and she calls them "mother/daugther bracelets", which I think is really cute. She bought them at a flea market, so they were probably really cheap, but I still love mine! And who knows, maybe it can become more silvery when I polish it, or something.
So last week I was at Mia Malene
's place. We had planned to bake some cupcakes, because - to be quite honest, don't kill me, I had never tried to bake cupcakes before. True story.
We made vanilla cupcakes with blueberry buttercream and they actually turned out pretty good! The buttercream didn't look like normal buttercream, but that might just've been the berries doing that to the cream, we didn't really know. But they were yummy! I brought some of them with me home and I ate them pretty quickly.
You can of course find the recipe on vanilla cupcakes on Mia Malene
As I'm not doing anything at all, neither work nor school, I'm spending a lot of time with my boyfriend and my friends. Mostly Cille
, who's also not doing anything at all.
And we go out a lot. Like, every weekend! Yeah, I might sound like an alcoholic, but you know what? I acutally enjoy myself, and no, I don't get hammered out of my mind. Sure, I get drunk or a tipsy, but nothing I can't control. And I've never been hungover!
Here's a couple of photos from all the fun I've had in the past weekends. Warning: drunk people, weirdness, sass, ovaries might explode.
Some other winter clothing I need are scarfs. I have a few, but I only use one of them. Now that I think about it, I only think I have two scarfs anyway.
And again I looked around on the interwebz and found a few scarfs that I would really want. What I want the most is one of those tube scarfs, even though they aren't very close to the throat when you put them on, so they probably don't protect the neck that much. They're probably just for fashion mostly, but I like them anyway.
There are now 4 weeks until I have to go to Bristol, and for that I really need to buy myself some new winter boots. I already have a pair of purple Doc Martens, but one pair is just not enough. My Converse won't do good to my feet on rainy days, which there are several of in England, as we all know.
Once I get some money Cille
and I are going shopping for a lot of stuff for Bristol. Such as winter boots. And other things like scarfs, sweaters, jeans and so on - basically just winter clothes.
I know I'm problaby not able to buy something from the internet and get it delivered before I go to Bristol, since I don't get money again until the end of September. But I couldn't help myself, so I looked around for some winter boots anyway.
I don't know if you've heard from my tumblr or twitter (if you follow me on either or both), but now I'm making a blog post here about it.
Yep, I'm going to Bristol, England for 4 weeks, from October the 14th - November 11th. I'm going with Cille and basically it's because we're going on a language course (which makes it easier to apply to universities next year), but of course we're going as well to experience the great nation of England! I've never been there in my entire life, so I really can't wait!
We're staying at a host family and we go to school 26 hours a week, and for the rest of the time, we do whatever we want! The school has some activities, both free and not-so-free, and we've already planned to experience what they call the great night life of Bristol. We're also planning to go to London for a bit!
The entire trip is paid for, and it wasn't cheap: £1575! ($2525, €1975). We also have plane tickets, so now all we have to do is wait for the amazing date to arrive.
In other news, it's my birthday in exactly one month!
Here's yet another Ireland post with some pictures we took!
We did have a pretty amazing time over there, and I really miss it. I can't wait to go back!
New in: You Me At Six.
So last week I also got a few You Me At Six-related things I ordered from eBay: a necklace with a two-sided guitar pick and a key chain with the same two-sided guitar pick.
It's not much, but I really love both of them :) I have the keychain with the rest of my keys and I wear the necklace a lot!
It is one of my favorite bands, so I couldn't help but buy a few stuff with them. And I'm happy for what I've bought - I will definitely buy more!
Review: Lime Crime products.
So last week I got my 2nd and 3rd Lime Crime product. I bought the D'Lilac lipstick and the Top Hattie magic dust eyeshadow.
The lipstick is really great quality, which I knew it would be, since I already have one lipstick called Glamour 101. And the colour is light purple when you put it on the lips, but it looks slightly purple/grey if you just look at it. Cille
and I wore this gorgeous lipstick all day last Saturday at Copenhagen Pride, as you can see on the pictures in the blog post below this.
It takes a while to apply the lipstick because it's a colour so far from your own lip colour, but when it's on, it's perfectly purple!
I was actually quite nervous about the eyeshadow. I've never bought one of these from Lime Crime, and I didn't know if there'd be too much shimmer in it. But it's actually really great! The colour is described as a 'shimmery white', and it is - but not too much. I don't have an eyeshadow primer, and I don't really know if I need one for this.
I'm not wearing other eyeshadows than purple, unless I go to parties - and then I wear silver all the time. So I thought, why not buy this, it looks kind of silvery. And it does!
I really love Lime Crime's products, and I can't wait to buy even more of them in the future! I'm also hoping that they will soon be able to ship their nail polishes to other places than the US and UK. They look really gorgeous! I already have a ton of products I wanna buy!
Copenhagen Pride Parade.
Yesterday I met up with Cille
, Mia Malene
and Marie to go to the Copenhagen Gay Pride Parade. We didn't participate in the parade itself, but we went to the event on the City Hall Square, which was fucking awesome! Pardon my French, but there's no other word for it.
MM and Marie unfortunately left early, but Cille and I stayed and had a lot of fun. We danced to nice music, drank (too much) beer and just had a blast! We caught a glimpse of Gustav, who's a Danish gay and very flamboyant guy from TV. Also Jim Lyngvild, another gay guy from TV, who was hosting the show on the stage at the city hall square waved at me and Cille, which made me so happy I cried a little, hehe.. And in the end of the show we met Sarah, a girl who participated in the Danish X Factor, who's a lesbian. We hung out with her and her friends for a while until we became too tired and went home.
We also found a gay guy and his very drunk friend whom we hung out with a lot. Well, they gave us free vodka, so what could we do xD The atmosphere was great, everyone were just so happy and it was freaking hot as hell, so everyone was sweating like pigs and running around in too little clothes. It was our first year at the fest, but we're definitely going back in 2013!
