Picture this. Four hours of sitting around, going through social media, eating and relaxing. Then you decide to listen to some music since it’s a bit boring to sit in silence and just stare at a screen. Then you’re like whoopsii, the first song that starts playing is the one that gives you the best feeling ever. Then you’re like, “well I guess I can listen to it one more time”. After the second replay you know there’s no going back, you can already feel the energy and happiness, it’s too late. You can’t stop it. You know you should just go to sleep but instead you decide to start listening to your party list (aka. my everyday, day & night list). You get more excited and you laugh at decent sleeping times, “who needs sleep anyway? I have music!”.
And now I’m here. It appears that we have again come to a conclusion that I shouldn’t speak to people, listen to music or do anything after ten(funny animal videos are specifically prohibited). Otherwise I’m going to stay awake until three writing, visualising, partly laughing and thinking amazing things. It’s actually really fun and I get a lot done but the day after, it can either be even better or death. Sometimes I like to risk it, like tonight. I randomly did a new Facebook cover and at first I loved it but now I’m already seeing small things that I should’ve fixed. But I guess the result is okay comparing to the time it took.
Not to totally go out of my way, I did want to tell you that A. I’m a big salmon soup lover B. Restaurant Story has really good salmon soup. I went there a while ago and I really liked the vibe of the market hall where the restaurant is located at. Oh and yes, the cappuccino was also really tasty. Even though I really liked this lunch place, the time that I have to eat is well, not always enough, haha.
Do you guys have a favourite lunch place where you tend to go all the time?
How’s everyone’s week been? The most embarrassing thing just happened! So I’m at a restaurant at the moment and I just went to pick up my salad and while I was about to sit down, I hit my head to the lamp above my table. So embarrassing, and it wasn’t a small “ups I hit my head” but a “whoa, I need to crab on this lamp so that it doesn’t fall off!”. Now I’m just trying to act cool like nothing happened. Humans are so awkward, at least I am.
Now that I’m almost recovered from my embarrassing accident and glanced at my salad, I want to tell you about Thursday’s press day, which was right on point! I usually don’t write about the events that I’m either organising or attending but the venue was just so beautiful that I had to. Those who follow me on snapchat (@sarahgrunn) know how excited I was since my snapchat was super long, hah.
Quickly summing Ellos, they have their own fashion, interior and beauty collection which were presented at the event. The event was held at Aallon Koti which is a beautiful penthouse in the centre of Helsinki. The venue was decorated with beautiful flowers that complimented the interior design perfectly. Laura from Home via Laura blog was the mastermind behind the interior decoration. She is such a brilliant person and her ability to create something like this is just amazing.
The event went quickly since there was so much to see and shoot. Oh and the food that Sara la Fountain made, d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s. I tried my best to give a glimpse to the vibe that I felt.
Have an amazing week everyone! <3
Oh, and here’s a picture of me and Adama. Kisses <3
DAMN WHAT A DAY!
I want to tell you something. Live. Don’t just breath, eat and go to school or work. I want you to enjoy every hour you have. Take every opportunity that comes to your way and have the courage to take risks. Have courage to fulfil your dreams and be the person you want to be. Have goals. Create a world for yourself where every day is an opportunity to do what you love and be who you want to be. Don’t let anyone tell you who you should be because the best version of you is the one you create and vision.
Put yourself in a position that it’s almost impossible not to dance, smile and and just be happy no matter where you are. Create a life that satisfies you and gives you so much that it’s impossible not to give back.
Do what makes you happy. Strive to be the best version of you. Create your own world. Vision your future. Wake up in the morning with a smile on your face. Live.

It’s swatch time, oop oop! Damn I’ve been waiting for a long time to try NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. So long that I ordered six of them at the same time, hah. Prepare for a along post and a lot of selfies. To be honest I can’t remember when was the last time that I took so many selfies. At one point I was constantly taking pictures of myself but for some reason I’m not that into it anymore. But! For you my loves I do my everything.
I tried my best to take pictures that show exactly how the shades look like on my skin tone and how they differ from one another. In addition I wanted to include which are my favourites and why. I divided the shades into three parts to make it a bit easier to see the differences :)
Comment if you liked this post! I’ll definitely do more of these if you are interested. By the way, have any of you tried these shades or generally NYX’s lip creams?
LE NATUREL LIPS
Out of these two STOCKHOLM is definitely my favourite one. CAIRO is a bit too light for me so I tend to mix it up with the other colours to get a beautiful ombre effect. Tho, I can already imagine being tanned and wearing CAIRO. Let’s see! About the consistency, CAIRO is a bit thin in my opinion and dryer then the rest. To get the most out of this shade I apply two layers and before applying the second one, I let the first layer to dry for a moment. This gives a maximum coverage.
Out of these two I’m yet to decide which one is my favourite. I’m leaning towards SYDNEY as it’s such a freaky colour but yet it works really well. BUENOS AIRES is a bit like Cairo but has more of and orange and peachy tone to it. Like CAIRO, Buenos Aires is a bit dryer so I use the same trick as with Buenos Aires. I’m curious to see how long the product will last as the consistency it a bit different. But don’t worry, it’s completely normal that different shades have a different consistency.
HELLO LIPS! I’m so in love with these two, amazing coverage and smooth application. One of the reasons why I absolutely adore matt lipsticks is that it gives you an possibility to create an illusion of fuller lips. The magic is in over lining your lips a bit, and because the product is matt, the peak of your lips aren’t highlighted. My favourite of these two shades is MOROCCO, I love how bright, almost neon, it is. Can you imagine having a tan and then Morocco on your lips. Died.
That’s it! I was thinking on swatching Kardashian Beauty’s lip products next. What do you think? (;
