Before/After Helmer's arrival


Order! 😀

But I surely don’t wanna assemble more of these anytime soon.. requires a lot of bending with a screwdriver and I broke 3 nails doing this 🙁 Next time I have to make sure my boyfriend is home 😛

Once upon a time

there was a book filled with polish swatches…

Every time I get a new polish I make a quick swatch in this little book just so I know how it looks 😀 This was btw. what I was doing when I was sick with my eye a month ago 😛 also an easy way to keep a hold on how many polishes I got since theres 5 swatches on every page 🙂 Well except the one we can see here that have 6 😛 Its the new Orly’s I got 😀 I am geek sorry ! 😛

Orly Spring collections (well some of them)

So when I got home not only did I have new phone waiting for me… but I also received a package with some new polishes in it from ORLY! And I of course tried my new phone’s camera for a quick picture of the polishes!

And I am amazed over the quality of the picture! I loooove my new phone 😀 The only sad thing about all this.. is I cant try these!! I made a promise to a very sweet reader to test the how long my new Chanel polish can last before it starts to chip and such.. So have to hang in there 😛

Anyways to get back to the polish, its from left to right
from the Sweet Collection
Pixi Stix

and from the Bloom Collection
Wild Wisteria
Pure Petunia
Ginger Lilly

Cant wait to show you these on 😀
Have a really nice evening/day where ever you are and thanks for reading! 🙂

Mom & Dad-Chairs

This is gonna be so off topic.. nothing nail related here today.. move it along people 😛

This Christmas I picked up a great idea from on of my favorite blogs, the danish blog guru Marie. She had a post about on how her home looked and had included a little contest and some pictures.  See her post here And in this I saw a great idea for a Christmas presents to my mom and my future “dad” 😛

So I present the Mom and Dad Chair!

Step 1:
You take 2x old dusty chair from a flea market

Step 2:
You take 1 old dusty grandfather to help you get the buttons off the legs

Step 3:
You burnish(is this right word?) the chair where the glue is suppose to be put on

Step 4:
You put a lot of pictures of the person the chair is intended to on

Step 5(optional):
Then you maybe put something a little extra on (in this case a picture from their wedding day)

Step 6:
Then you coat it with some see through stuff so it wont be worn up so quickly and voila you have a mom and dad chair ;DThen you have the dusty grandfather disguise it as something completely different when wrapped.
And then they had a very merry Christmas! 😀
I wish I was there when they got the present, but this year I had to work Christmas eve
(oh well can re-use the idea when I get some grandchildren for them at some point :P)

But they really liked their present and it came in handy for our Christmas party 😀

A decade is over! (picture heavy)

Inspireret af Stinestregen og hendes illustrerede nytårstale vil jeg starte det nye år med at se tilbage på de sidste 10.

2000 – 2003 – 17 år til 20 årage 17 to 20
Da jeg ikke havde computer før i 2003 måtte jeg lige slå de her år sammen.
Jeg brugte de år på at gå først på produktionsskole i Roskilde, derefter Roskilde Teknisk Skole på grafisk linje og fandt så ud af at jeg ville være IT-supporter og i 2001 startede jeg på TEC Ballerup hvor jeg gik indtil 2003. I 2003 droppede jeg uddannelsen og fik et job i Sverige.
Since I didn’t own a computer until 2003 I had to combine these. I used these years trying to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up, but ended up quitting those I started and got a job in Sweden instead

2000 – Helt korthåret da jeg begyndte at lade det gro – Very short haired
2000 – Lidt længere håret – a bit longer hair
2002 – Til lan og længden på håret er den jeg stadig i dag kæmper med at få lidt længere 😛 At a computerparty, the length on my hair I have to day, but I struggle to get it a bit longer without any greater success 🙁
Sommer 2003 – har lige fået hevet 16 lag farve i håret ud – Just got about 16 layers of hairdye pulled out so was blond again
Vinter 2003 – En af de første fester i Sverige ;D one of the first parties in Sweden
Udsigten fra min lejlighed i Sverige(der lå sne fra oktober til april sådan cirka) – View from my apartment in Sweden(had snow from october to april)

2004-2006 – 21 til 22 år – age 21 to 22
Jeg boede i Sverige indtil Juni og flyttede derefter med min ekskæreste til Århus I lived in Sweden until Juni then I moved back to Denmark with an ex.

Boede hele året i Roskilde og Martin tilbragte meget tid hos mig, så vi var nærmest for det meste 2 i min lille lejlighed – Lived in Roskilde all this year, Martin spent a lot of time there, so we got close in that tiny apartment 😛

Forår/spring – vi venter på færgen ved Odden – waiting for the ferry (sign says Dog toilet)

2008 – 25 årage 25
Mig og Martin flyttede sammen i starten af året, jeg stoppede med at ryge og i midten af April fandt vi en lejlighed i Herlev. Jeg ved ikke hvor jeg har gjort af billederne jeg har af lejligheden men de må undværes, evt. kan den ses her og en opfordring til Echoes om at viderebringe taggen 😛 eller andre der måtte have lyst til at lege med 😀 Der skete ikke rigtig så meget det år andet end at min kæreste kom igang med sin uddannelse og jeg startede på nyt job. Og ved ikke om det er derfor jeg ikke har så mange billeder igen men kunne ikke rigtig finde nogen i hvert fald – Me and Martin moved together in the beginning of this year, I quit smoking and in April we found an apartment in Herlev. I dont know where I put the pictures of it, but they can be seen here her and a little encouragement to Kellie to do the tag 😛 and others if they want to play along 😉 Nothing else really happend this year, my boyfriend started on his education and I started on a new job, so dont know if thats the reason I dont have that many pictures, because I couldnt really find any.

Sommer/summer – Udsigten fra vores kahyt på Oslobåden – went on a short boattrip to Oslo, Norway, view from our cabin

2009 – 26 årage 26
Den er jo ret nemt for jeg kan bare henvise til bloggens start og så kan man kigge med derfra 😛 Det her år har nemlig ikke rigtig budt på meget andet end arbejde fra min side af. Vi har været en tur i sommerhus med min mor og hendes mand + hans datter og søn og så en tur med Martins mor og søster som der også er billeder af her på bloggen – Now this is an easy one since I can just refer to the blogs beginning and then you can read from there. This year havent really been other stuff than work for me. We went to a short vacation in May with my family and again in July with my boyfriends family.

Men for at hurtigt opsummere – a quick summarize:

Forår/Spring – vi fik ny bil – we got a new car!

Sommer/Summer – vi var i sommerhus – we were on a short summer vacation

Efterår/Fall – jeg arbejdede meget hele efteråret så det må ha været negle der stod på min fritid og det er mit absolut yndlingsbillede jeg har taget med her 🙂 – Worked a lot during the fall so only thing really in my sparetime was the nails and this is one of my favorite pictures 🙂

Vinter/Winter – hvid jul – white christmas

Og så rundede jeg året af med at have 3 års dag med manden den 24 november –
And then I had 3 years anniversary with my boyfriend the 24th november

Ser frem til endnu et år her på bloggen og tak til alle dem der læser med. I gør det virkelig til en fornøjelse at skrive herinde og tage billeder 🙂 Godt nytår til jer alle 😀
Looking forward to another year here on my blog and a big thanks to everyone who is reading and commenting. You make it a pleasure to write in here and take some good pictures 🙂 Happy new years to all of you 😀
