Forever Beauty

It has been such an exciting start to the year!
But to tell you about it I have to start with November last year. Siri and I spontaneously went to a home party one day after work. This is where I was first introduced to Forever Living Products. That night was about the bestselling Aloe Vera products, and we also got to know a little about the business. I was already interested after that night, but it was when I saw that they had makeup products that I became really interested. I had been looking for a makeup store or distributor to cooperate with because I am doing makeup for photo shoots, and now I found an opportunity to become a distributor myself! But off course I had to try the makeup first, and I was so positively surprised! The quality is so good, the products are aloe vera based, cruelty free, kosher and halal. They are just amazing! To really test these products I brought the entire Flawless by Sonya makeup range to the studio and did an awesome pin up shoot! Leo came along too, he's so photogenic.

So in December last year I registered and joined the Forever family. It helped a lot that month because I saved so much on the Christmas gifts! But it was in January I decided to become a Forever Living Business Owner, and I am loving it! It is giving me the opportunity to work with my passion, makeup, and to develop within spa and skin care (I am a spa - and skin care therapist). It also gives me the opportunity to choose where I want to work, when I want to work and who I want to work with, not only in Norway, but in 160 countries world wide! With some hard work and patience Forever will also give me financial freedom, time to do all the things I have ever dreamed of doing and time to be with my loved ones, not to mention all the friends I am making and going to make through this business!

I am truly thankful for have been given this opportunity, and I will share my adventure with you guys here on my blog! But don't worry, this is still going to be a beauty blog. If you want to know more about Forever Living Products visit or contact me

This post was created on my iPad, still have no computer, but I will soon!

Winter, I love you even when I hate you

It is December already. Christmas is in under a month and it is safe to say that winter is here. But I shouldn't say that, shouldn't have said it weeks ago when we had our first snow fall. Winter is here. It is dark when we go to work and dark when we come home from work. It triggers something that makes me want to retreat to a soft, warm place for the next four months. A place with lots of sunlight, chocolate and colorful makeup.

I hate the cold. There is not enough fabrics in this house to keep me warm during Norwegian winters. I should just stay inside at all times, but we all know that's not happening. Winter is actually very beautiful, when the snow have covered the ground as a white blanket and the world looks so calm and quiet (and I am inside under an actual blanket sipping on a hot beverage). Then winter is fabulous! But right now I have a cold and am dreading the fact that in the morning I'll have to get up early for yet an other encounter with our coldest, darkest season.

Sneak Peak on a Photoshoot: Leo

Photographer Tore Hansen had been asking me to do a photoshoot with him for over a year and this weekend we finally agreed on a time. We decided to do a simple portrait shoot so I brought my little family along. We had a lot of fun and Leo did so good! It feels great to have some studio photos of him while he is still a puppy. I'll show you some more of the photos when I get them!

Right now I'm watching the MTV EMA while Leo is sleeping on my legs. What did you think of Nicki Minaj performance and her as a host? I kinda love her.

Are you watching the EMA's?

My Halloween Style Change Looks

Halloween is over and I am actually very pleased with my Halloween series this year even though I did not use my sfx kit. It was so much fun just playing with makeup again and creating different looks and styles that everyone can do! It is so hard for me to pick a favourite among these looks because they are so different from each other. However, I am very pleased with how I pulled off the goth look so that one is on the top for me. I also loved the hipster look because it turned out so cute and happy, putting it together and shooting it made me smile! Press the titles to get to the posts with more pictures, product and outfit lists.

If you liked these posts, but have any style you think is missing feel free to request it! Maybe I'll add some more posts to this for inspiration for next years Halloween.

#1: The Goth

#2: Swag

#3: Scene/Punk

#4: Preppy

#5: Bohemian

(I can not stop laughing at Leo in this picture!)

My Halloween look 2014: Skeleton

For the Halloween party this year I did a skeleton makeup. I actually shaved my sidecut with a razor so that I could make up that too! I am very pleased with how this turned out! I used L.A. Colors Jumbo Stick in White, Yves Rocher Creamy Kohl, Gina Tricot Liquid Eyeliner, Too Faced Naked Eye Palette and MakeupMekka Powders Palette for this look.

My outfit was very simple, I just put on a suit and shirt from H&M.

Creepy Doll Makeup by Siri

A creepy doll makeup has been requested on my facebook page! I don't think I'll have time to do one before Halloween, but I want to show you the creepy doll look that my friend Siri did last year. This look has gotten a lot of attention lately and has been seen in many pin-boards and posts with halloween inspiration and re-dos. It is a crazy, well-done look so she totally deserves this!
