Missing: Mr. DHL!

For the very first time since I started using DHL I'm not very impressed with them as a courier. I mean, I still like them a lot in general, and the regular delivery guy is flat out awesome - but on Tuesday Mr. DHL apparently came to deliver a package for me, and apparently I wasn't at home to sign for it. He was supposedly here at 12:20 PM, and when I called DHL to ask what the heck, she told me he'd left a note. Well, I was at home the whole day, and there was no phone call, no note and certainly no attempted delivery. Of course there was no harm done, I collected the package myself, but things like this pisses me off.

Anyway. I went to DHL myself to pick up my shipment, and it contained a collective haul from Urban Decay and M·A·C, in addition to a few gifts for a dear friend. It held my items from M·A·C Wonder Woman, the new Viva Glam Gaga II lipstick and matching lipglass, M·A·C & Nicki Minaj Pink Friday lipstick, a 217 Blending Brush, a 24/7 Shadow Pencil Blending Brush and the three new Feminine, Dangerous, Fun™ palettes from Urban Decay. I know I said I wouldn't buy any more Urban Decay palettes until they stopped launching the same colors over and over again, but you know.. I could.. not.. resist.. them.

MAC Wonder Woman Haul

I also picked up another package that arrived while I was in Kiel, and inside I found a signed copy of Kat Von D's "The Tattoo Chronicles". Such a gorgeous book! Unfortunately I cannot brag about knowing Kat Von D personally or even having met her, but I coincidentally saw a tweet from High Voltage Tattoo saying that a few signed copies of her book was available in their online store - and so I decided to order the book. I do not regret my purchase!

I'm still expecting Mr. Postman to stop by, and I hope he'll do so soon. I ended up ordering a straightening iron from FeelUnique, which I think has stopped for a vacation in Oslo - or so it might seem, and a padded envelope from Benefit Cosmetics. Exciting! Grin

  1. So awesome! I can’t wait til I get my Mac order. I only ordered a blush but I’m still excited lol

    • It’s so much fun receiving packages, especially those from M·A·C, even if they don’t contain much. I hope you’re on your way to building a collection again? If you had been a little closer, I’d share some of mine with you. <3

  2. Awesome package you got Smile
    I have had tons of problems with my regular post man…. the post service here in Finland (Vasa in particular) doesnt really work that well Frown

    Dont ask my I write in english..I mean, you are norwegian and I speak swedish so I know I could write in swedish, for some reason I use so much english with friends now a days that it comes naturally Grin


    • Actually I’m used to having a crappy postal service from where I was living before. It took forever to receive something, even from Oslo, and you never knew if it would arrive in one or several bits. In Trondheim I don’t have much to complain about really, but sometimes it confuses me to know that a package uses 12 hours from Germany to Trondheim (included customs), while a package from Oslo to Trondheim might take several days!

      And when it comes to language, please do whatever you like and prefer. Smile English, Swedish, it doesn’t matter at all. I use English and Norwegian equally myself.

  3. Nice haul, my friend Smile I’m always impressed by your taste. You always pick all the nice stuff. I’m slightly regretting, like 20%, for not picking up a Wonder Woman blush. I suddenly feel like wearing blush everyday and probably should have picked one up. Oh well, I’ll pick something else up to console myself.

    • Why, thank you my dear! I don’t know about the good taste, but I couldn’t leave the blush after all. On the other hand, Mighty Aphrodite is said to be very close to Bite of an Apple, so I’m not sure how wise that purchase was. Wink I do love my new toys though!

  4. Bah Wink Buy what you like. I think Mighty Aphrodite is a different texture though, because of the split sections. It seems to have a bit of shimmer as well, while Bite of an Apple is matte. Hey, variety is a good thing. I’ve become a bit of a blush addict – even if I’m not wearing eyeshadow, I dab on a bit of blush so I don’t look too serious.

    • You know, I think I’m gonna take that tip and (try to) apply blush when I go out, even though I’m not wearing any other makeup. As I’ve said before I think blush makes a world a difference to a face. Thanks for just making my purchase feel a little better. Wink

  5. Jeg har møtt henne i Oslo Grin Det var stas^^

  6. Do apply it Smile You’ll feel extra bouncy and cheerful Smile
