Skincity, Maria Åkerberg and Neal's Yard Remedies

A while back I learned that my all time favourite mascara from UNE Beauty is not cruelty free. This sent me on a hunt for a new one, something I did not look forward too as it would probably take me forever to find a new one that I liked as much as the one from UNE.

However, I siezed the opportunity to try a mascara that one of my favourite makeup bloggers uses and continues to rave about. It seemed to only be sold in beauty salons and be somewhat hard to get a hold of, but I managed to find an online store that carries the brand Maria Åkerberg. It's a Swedish natural and organic brand and if their products were a bit cheaper I'd probably have ordered a lot more things. But for now, let't talk about the mascara.

The store, skincity.se, also carried Neal's Yard Remedies, a brand I fell in love with the last time i visited London, but I never took the chance to pick up something from their shop. I ordered their face wipes.

I recieved my order within a couple of days and the items came very nicely wrapped like this, and it always makes me happy when some time and effort has been put into packaging.

I opened it to find this, which turned out to be a tote bag. Those things always come in handy.

Apart from the tote bag there were three other "gifts" in the package. A small makeup bag, a BareMinerals foundation sample, and a small Japanese doll, Kokeshi, which they described as a sign of gratitude. This however, I would rather not have recieved as the way they write about it on the little box it came in is nothing but creepy: "Our paths crossed on a journey to Shanghai. She stood there so cute and perfect. I wanted to bring her home." What, really? There are so many things wrong with this. They apparantely don't even know the difference between China and Japan. There was an option at the checkout to not get any free gifts with your order, and I'm definitely going to check that box the next time I order.

Anyway, moving on to what I actually ordered.  I've tried the mascara a few times so far, and my first impression is that it is a bit too wet. I hope it dries a little after a while, because right now it is kind of hard to handle. I also got some of it in my eye, and mother of Thor, it hurt.

The facial wipes did their job perfectly, and even though I will not use them every day, it's the kind of thing I'd gladly take with me for makeup removal on the go!

Bookshelf tour

Fresh on my channel right now is a bookshelf tour. I'm looking to start doing a bit more "booktubing" and I thought that showing what books I own would be a good place to start. If there are any books that catch your eye in the video and you want to know more about, just let me know!

Italy part 1

Last week I upoladed a vlog from my family's trip to Italy. I filmed a lot when we were there, but I also took many photographs. I decided to share a few of them here with you. These pictures are all from, I think, the first two days, and are pretty much all pictures of the place we stayed and its surroundings. As you can se the place was unfathomably gorgeous!
