YumiLashes by Skinbeauty

Posted in Cosmetics


Idag gjorde jag en kretinbehandling kallad YumiLashes av Carolina på Skinbeauty. Vad denna behandlingen gör är att dina egna fransar lyfts upp, blir lite tjockare samt färgade. Som du ser på bilderna ovan gör behandlingen att fransarna ser längre och fylligare ut. Detta är alltså mina egna fransar!  Trots att jag har lite skadade fransar efter att ha använt lösfransar så mycket så är jag supernöjd med resultatet. Mina fransar växer naturligt rakt ut och det är nästan hopplöst att hålla på med fransböjare för det hjälper knappt. Så att jag faktiskt kommer slippa bråka med den jävla fransböjaren lär bli så skönt! Så om man är som jag och inte är så sugen på att hålla på med fransförlängningar men ändå vill ge fransarna ett uppfräschande lyft är YumiLashes verkligen något jag rekommenderar!

Today I did a keratin treatment called YumiLashes by Carolina at Skinbeauty. What this treatment does is lifting your own lashes, thickens them and adds color. As you can see in the pictures above the treatment makes the lashes look longer and fuller. These are all my own lashes! Though my lashes are a bit damaged from wearing falsies so much I am super happy with the result. My lashes grow naturally straight out and it’s almost hopeless to use eyelash curlers because it hardly works. So the fact that I actually don’t have to fight with the damn eyelash curler will be so nice! So if you’re like me and is not super into eyelash extensions but still  want to give the lashes a refreshing lift then YumiLashes is absolutely something I would recommend! Click HERE to see more before and after pictures of the treatment on other clients.

WHAT IT THEY LEAVE?

Posted in Thoughts

I’m a thinker. There is a world inside of me unknown to most. I don’t mean to be a closed book but I’m working on opening up though mostly I’m stumbling and being clumsy with it. Anyway. Something I think a lot about is emotions. Mostly as something powerful and great but also as something heavy and terrifying. It’s the one of the few things we actually can’t control. Sure, we can control our emotions to some extent but deep down emotions are unpredictable as time. We know they’re there but not how they’ll act. But to get to the point I have fears connected to emotions and my problem is that I think too much about them to the point of crippling axniety. I’m just leading myself into a vicious and upright unnecessary cycle, really. But I think a lot of people can relate to what I’m about to say. Because imagine you being in a relationship, everything is great, you can’t imagine your life without your loved one, there is no need to worry and you couldn’t be happier. But then the thought strikes you like a lightning from a clear sky What if he/she wake up one day, fallen out of love? What it his/her heart stops beating for you? What if he/she have had enough? What if he/she leave? And I know it’s plain stupid but these are questions I beat myself up with too often and I can’t seem to escape them and I don’t know why. I know what it feels like when someone who promised you the world suddenly out of nowhere cuts you off like you never meant anything to them. Though at that time it was what I needed to get out of a failed relationship I was too lost in to get out myself despite the signs. It wasn’t love, it never was and I never felt that. That’s all you need to know now, the details are not important. But here I am, years later, in a relationship built on love, support and trust. Not a day goes by where I can’t help myself from looking at him and think to myself how lucky I am to be a part of his life despite my flawed edges. Believe it or not, while I’m writing this I choke up and fighting tears to fall but not of sadness, but of happiness and gratefulness. That’s the powerful and great side of emotions I mentioned earlier. They can be so real that you can’t help yourself from feeling. It may be a naïve thing to say at age 23, but I know I’m here for the long run, I’m not going anywhere. All of these questions lay in my own insecurities that I’m fighting, I’m responsible for for all of them, nobody else. But I’m working on them the best I can because I do have no reason to worry. Honestly, I don’t know why I’m telling you this and I’m not looking for pity, not at all. This post didn’t even turn out as I had planned. I guess I just needed to vent.

Jag kan inte tala för alla men jag hatar att vara ute på stan under mellandagsrean så jag sitter hellre med datorn och shoppar men bra avstånd från rushen. För jag vill ju inte missa godbitar för att jag inte gillar stressen! Så idag har jag kollat runt mestadels på Zalando eftersom dom har ALLT och väldigt bra rea. I collaget ovan ser du artiklar jag lätt hade valt att ha på mig till vardags, beställde även hem mycket av det men inte allt för man ska ju kunna äta också så nu väntar jag bara på att leveransen skall komma fram. Mina favoritartiklar är definitivt nr 5, 6, 7 och 8 tillsammans, det står JOHANNA med stora bokstäver över den outfiten! Vilken är din favorit?
I can’t speak for everyone but I hate being downtown during the after christmas sale so I’d rather sit by the computer and shop from a safe distance from the rush. Because I don’t want to miss the goodies just because I don’t like the stress! So today I looked around mostly on Zalando since they have EVERYTHING and very good sales. In the collage above you see articles I easily would’ve worn casually, ordered many of them but not everything because I want to eat too so now I’m just waiting for my package to be delivered. My favorite articles are definitely nr 4, 6, 7 and 8 together, it’s JOHANNA written all over that outfit! Which one is your favorite?

WE NEED TO TALK

Posted in Thoughts

Well, not you and I necessarily, but I need to talk and I don’t mean to be dramatic. Ever since the algorithm changed on our beloved Instagram I’ve often found myself getting more and more anxious to the point I don’t know what I’m doing anymore. I’ve watched as the numbers were falling, everything I had worked for started fading. I hear how stupid that sounds and if this was two or three year ago I wouldn’t be bothered. But now, social media being a reason why I can pay bills every month, my heart began sinking with the statistics. I hate that. Not that I don’t get as much likes as before, no one really cares, I absolutely hate how negatively it has ended up effecting me. I started questioning everything I did. What am I doing wrong? Am I boring? Ugly? What do I have to change? Why don’t people care about my work anymore? And I got tired, unmotivated and uninspired. I wasn’t happy with what I brought to the table, mostly because it was forced and I know I’m not alone with that thought. I’ve seen people like me tiring themselves out trying their best to regularly bring new creative content to just entrain their audience and forgetting how they really feel. I can admit that most of my content still is not a reflection of who I am as an “artist”. I’m a watered down version of myself. I got so dependent on pleasing the larger crowd because that’s when I saw the result I was expecting and it felt good – for a while. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Instagram is not the core of my wellbeing – obviously and luckily. I feel like I’m losing and that including the most important thing in my life, that obviously not being social media. But I’m probably overreacting and in a short while will say to myself ‘lol that was lame’ and carry on like I always do. I know it doesn’t show when I’m low, stressed or anxious if you don’t see me personally on a daily basis because in the company of others I’m the happy side of myself, I’m laughing and cracking jokes at any given moment so it’s not like I blame people for not knowing since I’m not talking about it. Mostly because I don’t want to be a bother. But then again, a genuine “how are you?” could lift someone’s spirit even if their answer is just “I’m good” although it might not be and I feel like people don’t understand that. I know it’s cliché but I just want this year to be over so I can turn over on a new leaf because I haven’t been quite myself the past couple of months. I don’t know what next year holds or what’s gonna happen and it scares the shit out me. Is it going to be “my year”? Am I going to have to move? It could be one or the other, or something in between. Nothing is decided but everything is a possibility. I honestly have no idea what’s in store but I’ll set my goals and do whatever I can to get there. I’ve been meaning to post this for a while but something has been holding me back but for the sake of myself and others and for the truth to be told that it’s okay to not be okay.

CHRISTMAS SERUM

Posted in Cosmetics


Ni vet det läppserumet jag snackat mycket om på instagram? Ni vet det med hylaruonsyra som håller läpparna unga, mjuka och smidia? Det med E-vitamin som skyddar mot skador på hucellerna? Och har SPF 20 som skyddar läpparna mot UV-strålar? Ja det, LipCare heter det som är skapat av Mareli Medical. Just nu får du 35% rabatt på ditt köp av 1-pack LipCare med koden ”JOHANNA” och om du beställer så fort som du kan hinner du få din beställning innan jul. Perfekt om du vill ge bort ett lyxigt läppserum till mamsen, syrran, flickvänner och ja varför inte till en snubbe du vet behöver ta hand om sina läppar lite mer. Och juste, gratis frakt över hela världen också, pricken över i:et liksom! Du kan läsa mer och köpa LipCarewww.MareliMedical.se (LÄNK).
You know that lip serum I’ve been talking a lot about on instagram? You know that with hylaruonic-acid that keeps the lips young, soft and supple? The one with E-vitamin that protects the lips from damage on the skin cells? And har SPF 20 which protects the lips from UV damage? Yeah that one, it’s called LipCare developed by Mareli Medical. Right know you get 35% off on your purchase of 1-pack LipCare with the code ”JOHANNA” and if you place your order as soon as you can you’ll get our order before christmas.

Pro tip från mig som använder LipCare varje dag:
– Applicera LipCare och låt det verka medan du sminkar dig, det tar ca 15 min för det att sjunka in.
– Applicera valfritt läppstift så håller du dina läppar mjuka längre och du slipper tort läppstift.
Pro tip from someone who uses LipCare everyday:
– Applicate LipCare and let it absorb while you do your makeup, it takes about 15 min for it to sink in.
– Applicate any lipstick of your choice and you lips will stay soft for longer and you’re spared from flaked lipstick.
