I think yesterday took it's toll on me, because I've been completely exhausted all day. I had a hard time getting out of bed, which was kinda problematic as I had an interview scheduled for 11:00 AM today. Obviously that didn't work out, but luckily the journalist - a very nice woman - was extremely understanding, and postponed the interview for several hours. At 17:30 PM we finally met up, and she did a piece on me and my blog for a Norwegian journal. I'm not going to say much more about it quite yet, but I think it's exciting! I've actually done an interview because of my blogging - how cool isn't that? I must admit to feeling a tad important right now.

Thursday was such a nice day with a temperature of 13'C, and delightful sunshine all day! I was supposed to participate in a meeting regarding ULOBA in Trondheim, but I never made it. We took the bus to Munkegata, but when we got to the connecting bus I was unable to get on - why can't all buses be without stairs? We were told that there was another bus which I would be able to enter with my wheelchair, but it would take about an hour - and that would make us arrive 45-60 minutes after the meeting had started. We called on a taxi, but after realizing it would cost us about 1000,- NOK, we changed out minds and went to Trondheim Torg instead. No use in throwing away a perfectly good day, huh?

I don't really like going to Trondheim Torg when I'm broke, as I'm not really big on window-shopping, but I'm lucky enough to have a very sweet boyfriend. He bought me a new shower gel from The Body Shop, my favorite soap of all time. Some of them smell so great I'm tempted to drink them! This time I chose "Sweet Lemon", one of their new scents. It smelled delicious! I also picked up a new silicone cover for my iPhone, since my invisibleSHIELD™ decided to start peeling. It was great as long as it actually worked though. I did look for Maybelline® Dream Mousse products in several stores, but all I could find was their Dream Matte® Mousse Foundation, no concealers or blush.

GOSH Bohemian Gypsy & Modern GypsyI also went to VITA to check out the new collection from GOSH Cosmetics. Their two new quads called "Bohemian Gypsy" and "Modern Gypsy" looked so incredibly appealing to me, but it's been a long time since I've been that disappointed in a product. Sure, it looked nothing less than amazing, but the color payoff was horrible! I swatched the colors in the store, and some of them didn't even show up on my fingertips! They seemed hard, chunky and impossible to work with. Maybe there was something wrong with the testers, I don't know - all I know is that it's not worth wasting any money on. If anyone else have these quads and think they're awesome, please let me know. Since these are LE I might buy at least one of the quads just to check if it's really the testers or what, but I haven't decided yet. I've become spoiled by highly pigmented eyeshadows like the ones from M·A·C, Make Up For Ever and Urban Decay - so now I've turned into somewhat of a makeup snob. I'll keep you posted on what I decide, and if I end up getting one or both of these quads I'll put up some swatches for you.

  1. Hei, ville bare tipse deg om denne siden, der har de kanskje noe av de blushene du leter etter?


  2. Neglelakkmani: Du er vel en engel, tusen takk for linken! De har blushene, og et par andre ting jeg kunne tenke meg å prøve. Smile

  3. Så bra! Smile Jeg har bestilt neglelakk derfra og har bare godt å si om de.

  4. Gratulerer med intervjuet. Du får holde oss oppdatert når det kommer på trykk, så vi får muligheten til å lese det.

  5. Jerven: Hjertelig takk, det skal jeg gjøre. Jeg fikk se noen av bildene idag, og ble positivt overrasket. Smile Ha en riktig god natt videre!

  6. Jeg swatchet noen av øyeskyggene på handa da jeg var innom, og noen var pigmenterte, men andre kunne man se at de var chalkye, og det kom nesten ingenting på fingeren.. Så tror ikke jeg kommer til å kjøpe noen av de.. Smile

  7. Åshild: Tusen takk for kommentar! Jeg hadde sånn halvveis tenkt meg innom for å kjøpe den ene paletten idag, siden VITA har 25% salg på all makeup fra GOSH, men jeg er veldig usikker – især når du har samme oppfatning av disse som meg. Smile
