Travel hacks and essentials

Made by me in the Assembly and Canva apps (both metioned here)

When you are reading this, I am either on my way to the airport or 30 000 feet in the sky on my way to Granada, Spain. Now, you are probably thinking ‘why are you on your way to Spain? Summer break haven’t started yet’. Well, I am going on field trip with my Spanish class, so technically it is still school… in Spanish. Wish me luck! Lack of language skill and excitement over traveling with friends put aside, getting to Spain entails travel by plane. Therefore, I thought I would share with you my travel essentials and hacks that I have accumulated over the years. I hope you find this helpful, and most of all enjoy!

First off, I would like to start with a hack that I discovered last year.

1| SeatGuru.com

Seatguru.com is a website where you can find all sorts of information about different aircrafts. The best thing is that you can search for you next flight and find out about everything from the seating arrangements to what in-flight amenities the aircraft provide. Below I have included a collage of how to use the website and what information the website has to offer.

How to use SeatGURU.COM

2| Use cling film to prevent liquids from leaking

This is for everyone who worries every time they pack liquids, which is everyone. All you need is cling film or even a thin plastic bag will do. You first unscrew the bottle you want to secure, and cut a square out of either the cling film or the plastic bag. All you have to do is put the piece of plastic on the opening of the bottle and screw the cap on as if the piece is not there.

3| Set the time to you final destination (on the plane)

Now this is obvious and something you have to do anyway. However, you most likely do this after you have touched down on you final destination. The trick is for those who struggle to adapt to time zones. By setting your watch to the correct time, you can already start preventing or reducing your (most likely in-coming) jetlag. For example, I am traveling to the U.S, and there is a 6 hours’ time difference from Norway. By setting my watch to U.S time, I can already start to sleep or stay awake depending on what time it is. That way you get a little head start!

Now over to the in-flight essentials.

1| Portable charger

Now this one is mainly because I found out, through seatguru.com, that the airplane I am travelling with does not have power outlets. On a 4 hours’ flight I am bound to use up the battery of my phone. With a portable charger that my dad reluctantly borrowed me, this will not be a problem. On top of that, the charger has three different outlets so it can charge both iPhone and Android. I have yet to find out if you can charge two devices at the same time.

2| Blotting sheets

Makeup-vise I like to wear the bare minimum when traveling. Mostly because I don’t have to worry about touching up or just that I don’t want to worry on the plane ride.  If anything, I wear a bit of powder. Now, for us oily-skinned girls, `just a bit of powder` is not enough. After a while, you feel like people could almost reflect themselves on your forehead or that you have enough oil to fill a frying pan (gross visual, but for some that’s a real problem!). This is where blotting sheets come in. Blotting sheets are little paper-thin sheets that absorbs oils and residue on your skin by just patting it on the problem area. I have yet to find blotting sheets in Norway, but fortunately I found the on my summer holiday in Singapore last year. I bought 4 packets just to be safe!

3| Moisturizer, hand sanitizer and lip balm

With the dry airplane air, come a whole bunch of other dry things – hands and especially lips. To prevent that I bring with me a trusted favorite of mine, the Biotherm hand and nail repair. Keeping a moisturizer in your bag can come in quite handy (pun intended).

Moving on to hand sanitizers. For this is something that I have to have with me at all times – not because I’m a germaphobe, because I’m not! However, I do like to be able to disinfect my hands if I’m unfortunate enough to touch something unhygienic.

Lips are another thing that is affected by the traveling conditions. And I have a nasty habitb of licking my lips when they are dry, which makes it that much worse. To solve this problem I have the Smith’s Rosebud salve (in a tube form). This lip balm sinks into the lips right away, and also has a sheer pink tint to it (although it doesn’t show on my pigmented lips).

4| Travalo perfume atomizer

I’m a lover of all things travel-size and this mini perfume atomizer us no exception. In fact I think it is the most adorable travel-sized item that I own! I have been on the lookout for this very thing for a while now, and have failed because it was either too expensive or just not accessible in Norway. You can imagine the excitement when I found them at Mustafa Center in Singapore last year. We bought one for me and my little brother and all was well. Now back to why this is an essential when traveling. I don’t fancy carrying around a big clunky perfume bottle in fear of it breaking or just taking up much space. On the other hand, the perfume atomizer is the size of a lipstick tube, which makes it perfect for me!

Well, that was my top travel hacks and essentials! I don’t really know how to end my blog post yet, so I’m just going to say: I hope you enjoyed it and got something out of it. In addition, I really recommend checking out seatguru.com for your next flight as you get a lot of extra information. Again, I hope you found this helpful and please leave a comment if there is anything that you think I should have included or just to say hi. Any type of feedback and comments are greatly appreciated.

Now, I’m off to Granada on 6-day fieldtrip!

Sincerely,

Beulah

Blue Jean Dreams by H&M

I don’t think I have ever fallen so much in love with a clothing collection like I have with H&M’s ‘Blue Jean Dreams’. This collection features of course many denims in the form of the trending flared pants, overalls and even a bib overall dress! The collection also have some stylish jersey tops in earthy and neutral tones to go well with the denims.

Since I have been feeling really inspired by this collection, I have made some sets on Polyvore and thought I would share them with you here.

I have taken my favorite pieces from the collection and put them together in three outfits. My absolute favorite of the bunch has to be look #3 as it has the bib overall dress (can you tell how much I love this item and need to get my hands on it?). I hope you get some inspiration from the outfits!

Look #1 – cool coat and shoes with a twist

Blue Jean Dreams by H&M | Look #1

 

Look #2 – denim skirt and ankle boots

Blue Jean Dreams by H&M | Look #2

 

Look #3 – denim bib overall dress and white sneakers

Blue Jean Dreams by H&M | Look #3

 

Thank you for reading and checking out the looks and feel free to comment your favorite look below! Also feel free to check out my polyvore account where I try to post outfit ideas regularly. If you want to know more about polyvore, you can check this.

My Favorite Apps

MY FAVORITE APPS

Here is a compilation of my favorite apps. I have chosen to leave out the obvious essentials such as YouTube, Instagram and Pinterest, because we all know about them already. Instead, I have gathered (what I believe to be) lesser-known apps, in hopes that you might discover something new to download on your phone.

1| Wattpad (eReader) FREE

I first discovered Wattpad in 2012 and have been a loyal reader ever since. The app enables you to read other’s stories and post your own. The site is of course for amateur writers, but there are many examples of books actually getting published and such. Unfortunately, when they happen to be published they will have to remove the book from Wattpad.  It is great way to start posting stories and get feedback on your work.

You can also vote on chapters of book, to show your support to the author. Wattpad also host an annual Watty Awards, where the readers vote for books in different genres and themes. This is also a great way to show your support. Moreover, you can make reading list compiling your favourite books all over or books you like in different genres.

2| Polyvore FREE

If you are a fashion enthusiast and love to make collages this is app is perfect for you, as it combines both. Polyvore allows you to put together outfits and make them into stylish collages. You can inspire other’s with your sense of style and follow other’s and in turn get inspired by them.

Polyvore also host contests where you can win prizes (most often the contest that give prizes are sponsored and only available for user in the US and Canada). The contests can be about anything from how to style a knit-dress or how to wear pantone’s colours of the year. If you read my last post, 4 Ways to wear Rose Squartz and Serenity, I originally made the sets for a contest and thought it would be nice to have them in one post.

3| Assembly FREE

This is app is for you who like to put together shapes to make shapes that actually look like something. The app is what is would consider perfect for those who are by no means a graphic designer, but want to make something for yourself (right up my alley!).

The app is easy to use, and it is a great way to get started on making graphic designs. I would like to point out that I am not an educated/professional graphic designer or anything like that – I just like to make simple designs (that I believe are aesthetically pleasing). The apps has helpful tutorials to get you started, and once you get the hang of it you will not be able to stop (unless you run out ideas that is!).

I also use this app to make some of my blog post headers, much like the header of this post.

4| Canva FREE

The perfect app (and website) for you who want to make graphic designs, but is a beginner. The app has templates for everything from business card to YouTube thumbnails. Moreover, it is free to use and the best thing is that it does not leave a watermark!

I used both the app and website to make my blog post headers in conjunction with the Assembly app. While I make the design in the Assembly app, I add the title and texts in the Canva app or website.

5| Paper by 35 FREE

The best drawing app out there! I first downloaded this app back in 2013, when I got my first (and only) iPad. When I first downloaded the app I only had some of the tools available and had to purchase the rest. However, I am not sure if most of the tools have to be bought or that you get them free when you download now.

Anyhow, it think this is a great app for those who like to draw and especially for those who does not like to drag around a notebook and all kinds of pencils. The app has different tools like a pencil, paintbrush, marker and much more. Like I mentioned before I first downloaded this on my iPad, but recently they made the app available on the iPhone.

6| Afterlight $0.99

Now, if you have read the reviews on this app in the App store, you have probably seen many people saying that you could get a better app for free, so “don’t bother”. I am not going to lie; there are probably photo-editing apps out there that have the same features without any cost. However, I decided to get it anyway because of the other people talking good about it. Besides, it is not as if you waste a lot of money if you do not like the app anyway.

I should probably tell you why I like this app, as it is included in my favourite apps! Well, the app is easy to use. There is no complicated settings or anything and it has just all the features that you would need to edit a photo (excluding the option to add text, like quotes).

7| Bonjournal FREE

Bonjournal is a great app for you who want an easy way to document your travels. It is a journal, where you make entries in which you can add pictures as well. The entries will be dated and you can add your location and a title for each day or time. I first used this app for my summer holiday to Singapore and Malaysia last year.

What I like about the app is that it is so easy to use because of the minimalist layout. You can also post things on the go, so no internet connection will not stop you from sharing you adventures.

 

That was my favourite app for the time being. I will update this or make a second post of I find any new apps worthy of sharing. I am considering starting a series called “App Spotlight” where I focus on a specific app throughout a blog post. I will dwell deeper into the app, tell you the pros and cons of it, and most likely add screenshots as well. Let me know if you are interested.

I hope you found any apps that you want to try out, and as always thank you for reading.

Sincerely,

Beulah

4 Ways to Wear Rose Quartz and Serenity

Rose Quartz

Pantone always release the colour of the year, and this year there are two colours. Move over, Marsala. It is time for rose quarts and serenity. The colours are a pale pink and a light baby blue. I will show you how you 3 makeup looks and one nail design, all containing the colours of the year.

I think that this year’s colours are a bit more suitable for paler skin tones, but that does not mean that darker ones can wear them. Wear whatever you like and feel comfortable with. I will hopefulle do a post soon with outfits of the same colours to show you style options other than makeup looks. But for now, hope you enjoy this post!

All sets/collages included in this post are made on either the Polyvore app or website.

1| The Graphic EyelinerRose Quartz and Serenity: Graphic Eyeliner

Want the eyes to be that statement? Go for the graphic eyeliner! This is a technique that I like to use whenever I am wearing a bold eyeliner. I feel like the black liner tones it down a bit, making it more wearable on my part. The white liner on your waterline can also open up the eye, giving you a more awake appearance.

2| Soft cheeks and a Pop of BlueRose Quartz and Serenity: Soft cheeks and a pop of blue

This look is more subtle than the graphic eyeliner, but this has that pop of color. You can be as fancy as you like with the eyeshadow. You can either go for a light wash of blue, or put a darker blue in the crease for more depth. I would personally skip the eyeliner on this look, as I want the lashes to stand out. Lastly, apply a pink blush.

3| Gradient Nails

Rose Quartz and Serenity: Gradient Nails
If you do not want to wear bright colours on your face, you can display the colours of the year on you nails. With this cute and easy manicure yu are sure to impress anyone who lays their eyes on it!

4| Wispy lashes and pink lips

 

Rose Quartz and Serenity: Wispy lashes and pink lips

 

The last look is more subtle compared to the others, as this one requiers simple eyemakeup. The colours is in the lips, and again you can choose if you want to go bold and opaque or tinted.

Hope this post gave you some inspiration as to how you can wear the colours of the year. As always, please leave any questions, comments or anything below. Chances are that I will answer within seconds! Thank you for reading so far.

Beulah

The Do’s and Don’ts of Nails

 

THE DO'S AND DON'TS OF NAILS

Whether you are running low on money or if you like to do your own nails, this is a guide for you. I am by no means a nail expert, but you tend to pick up a thing or two over the years as a nail polish addict. That is why I am going to share with you some nail do’s and don’ts of nails. Hope you find it helpful!

DO: Two thin layers of polish

It is better to apply to thin layers of polish rather than one thick one. A thicker layer takes longer to dry and have a better change at peeling off. Two thin layers and allowing them to dry between each application will make the manicure last longer.

DON’T: File back and forth

When you file back and forth, you cause friction in the layers of the nail (not sure about the science of this, but well acquainted with the consequences). The friction can cause peeling on the edges of your nails, thus weakening them. Instead, file in one direction.

DO: Roll the nail polish bottle between your palms

You should this whenever you see that the polish has started to separate, which they tend to do over some time. Hold the bottle upside down between your palms and roll back and forth. This is much better than smacking the bottle against you palm, as this causes air bubbles and nobody want that.

DON’T: Buff more than you need to

When you buff your nails, you are essentially taking off layers of your nails. As a result of this, your nails get weaker and brittle. Personally, I prefer ridged nails to weaker nails. That does not mean that I do not buff at all. I do, whenever on of my nails peel at the edges. I buff the edge to smooth it down, so it is not caught up on other materials. Either way, do not buff more than you need to.

DO: Paint from the little finger and outwards

When painting your nails, it is best to start from the little finger and continue outwards as this lessens the risk of you bumping against and smudging your handy work.

DON’T: Do anything to your nails when they are wet

Your nails are at their weakest when they are wet. You might have felt how flexible they are, contrary to how they are when dry. Don’t file or cut them while wet, as this might lead to peeling nails.

DO: Apply polish to an oil-free base

Applying polish to a bare nail is always the best option for a long-lasting manicure. Any excess moisture or residue will prevent the polish to adhere to the nail properly. We are all tempted to lather our hand in hand lotion after removing polish from out nails, as the remover is quite drying on both nails and hands. I am by no means telling you to skip this step, as it can be quite hard to resist. What you do, on the other hand, is to take a q-tip with polish remover and wipe down your nails before applying your polish.

Here they are, my top do’s and don’ts of nails. I hope that you found it helpful and thank you for reading so far. If there are any questions, request or just a friendly ‘Hi’, please do not hesitate to leave a comment. I am not sure if you felt the desperation in my writing there, but it is quite dry on these parts.

Sincerely,

Beulah

Best Beauty Buys of 2015

Best Beauty Buys of 2015This year I have discovered many products that I am most definitely going to repurchase. I have by no means perfected my skincare regimen or my makeup routine, but I have definitely come along way with the products that I bought this year.

1| MAC Lipstick in Diva

This is by far the product that I am most satisfied with this year. I can, with a hand over my hard, say that this is my Holy Grail lipstick. It certainly a purse staple. This is a matte lipstick, and MAC describes it as an intense reddish-burgundy. The lipstick glides on and lasts for a long time; of course depending on how much you drink or eat. I also find that lipstick leaves a nice strain but the edges might be a bit harsher, thus giving you the “only lip liner”- look. This shade does not really require a lip liner, unless you want darker edges. The colour itself gives a crisp line, well that also depends on how good you are at putting on lipstick (not that I am an expert).

The best thing about this lipstick is that it is matte, but not drying or at least I do not find it so. This is after all my first MAC lipstick, so I cannot speak for all of them. What I will do is definitely check out more of their lipsticks.

2| bareMinerals Original Foundation in Warm Tan

I have been looking for a foundation for long time, and I think I have found one worth repurchasing. One of the key factors as to why I fell for this one is that it is a powder. I have always felt that powder would be best for my oily skin, and I was right. I tend to get oily around the t-zone (as most of us do).

There is a matte version of this foundation, but I went for the original thinking that I could always powder over it. Or just use a good primer and so far, it has worked. I was lucky enough to be in the shade that is was, as it is the darkest shade they had available. Norway does not have a very good colour section yet.

3| Origins Drink-Up Intensive Overnight Mask

Overnight mask to quench skin’s thirst, it says on the packaging and it does. What was at first an impulse buy at the Changi airport to use up all of my Singapore dollars, are now a staple in my skin care regime! I use it once a week, and always look forward to waking up to a replenished face. All I do is wash my face, then apply this instead of my normal night cream, and just go to bed. A little goes a long way. The first time I used it, I made the mistake of squeezing out too much and having to smear on an extra layer, just so I would not waste any.

The mask does not dry so you can still feel it sitting on your skin even after a while. However, I do not find that a problem because I am fast asleep by then! The cream also has a nice sent to it, almost fruity (and that is as far as my describing abilities go!). It says in the package that it can be used twice a week or as desired, but I like to stick to one. My skin is usually oily, but around wintertime, I get some dry spots that the mask takes care of.

4| Real Techniques Expert Face brush

This thing is a God-given gift. The bristles are so soft that sometimes I find myself just brushing my face with it even when I am not applying makeup. It is that soft! This is one of two RT brushes that I have(the other being the shading brush, which I use for concealer instead of its original purpose).

Overall, I think this is a perfect brush for liquid foundation, even though I have only used it with my bareMinerals foundation. In fact, I bought it within a week of buying the foundation. Unfortunately, I cannot compare this to other brushes, as this is one of my very first makeup brushes. What I do know is that I am going to check out the rest of their line, especially the setting brush.

5| Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

I used to be an avid makeup wipes user, even when they used to break me out. Then this miracle came along and saved my face. I use this both for removing makeup and when I have one of my no-makeup-days and want to refresh. This does really take off makeup and dirt; however, I still use an oil-based remover for my eye makeup.

Where the certain makeup wipes left my skin dry and irritated, the micellar water left it cool and refreshed. I have gotten less breakouts since I started using this, but I cannot say that it has cleared my skin more than that. Another bonus is the size of the bottle, a whole of 400 ml. I bought this back in April and I have a little less than half left. It says in the bottle that it has six months before it expires, but I have held onto it for longer than that and have not noticed any differences in its effect on my skin or anything else.

That was all of my best beauty buys of 2015. May the year that is ahead of us be just as prosperous in the beauty world as is it was this year! I hope you enjoyed reading this and got some product suggestions to try out in the coming year. I would like to point out that I am a new beginner when it comes to blogging, and this is my second blog post ever. Any suggestions as to improvements or anything at all, please tell me (as it would be greatly appreciated). Thank you for reading so far!

Sincerely,

Beulah

How to Get Started on Your Essay 

 

How to get started on your essay

Hello, to whoever stumbled by!

I’m writing this as I should be studying for my Spanish mock exam. Two finals down and three more to go before my well-deserved (or so I think) Christmas break. Before that time comes, I’ll have to write a thing or two, and why not this blog post? I’m going to share with whomever is reading this, a trick that one of my teachers showed me last year. Chances are that your teacher might already have shown you this method of getting started on your essay. Either way, I hope you find this helpful and that I haven’t scared you away yet!

There are five steps in total, and the first starts after you have gotten a topic or subject. I’m going to follow through with the steps with an example of my own. My topic is that computer use in the classroom can be either a recourse or a distraction.

1| Pressure-write for 10 minutes

Set a timer for 10 minutes and write down everything you know on the subject. Don’t pay attention to sentence structure or grammar, just try to write everything that comes to mind. This is so that your mind can start to recollect what you already know about the subject. That is one on the things that we don’t do very often – think about the things we already know about the subject and therefore it might be harder to start writing. You might be surprised by how much you remember.

EXAMPLE: Computer use in the classroom can be both an asset and a distraction. It can make the schoolwork easier with the wide access of the web; however with this access comes also other things that can distract the students from what they should be doing…

2| Get an overview of your main points

Read what you have written and pick out your main points. Try to complete the sentence: “What I want to get across is…”

EXAMPLE: “What I want to get across is that computer use in the classroom can be both an asset and a distraction.”

3| Make the sentence from step 2 and make it into a thesis statement(or question)

The sentence you made in step 3 is essentially, what your essay is going to discuss. Therefore, it is the perfect foundation to make a solid thesis statement, or a question if you prefer.

EXAMPLE: “Computer use in the classroom is both an asset and a distraction” OR “Can computer use in the classroom contribute to the education or is it just a distraction?”

4| Make 5 sentences

A) Your thesis statement or question

B) A sentence that supports A

C) A sentence that contradict A

D) A sentence that supports A

E) A sentence that sums up the sentences above

EXAMPLE:

A) Computer use in the classroom is both an asset and a distraction.

B) Computers in the classroom is a great tool for learning, with the access to information and much more.

C) With the access to information comes access to other things that might distract the students from their schoolwork.

D) When teachers can limit the students’ internet access, it prevents the students from doing something that they shouldn’t.

E) Overall, computer access can both contribute in the classroom and be a distraction if it’s not limited to what they should be doing.

5| Elaborate on the sentences from step 4

You may as well as noticed by now that the sentences you made in step 4 are all good topic sentences, sentences to start a paragraph. What you have now is an outline for your essay. All you need to do now is to thoroughly elaborate on each of the topic sentences and you are well on you way!

EXAMPLE: Aha, no way I’m going to elaborate on this!

There you have it, a way to get started on that damn essay that you have put off until the night before the dead line. Now if only I followed my own advice… I hope that you found this helpful and will pass it along to your friends. Thank you for reading so far and I hope to see more of you here!

Sincerely,

Beulah

 

Rubik’s Cube Costume | DIY

DIY RUBIK'S CUBE COSTUME

Hello

Today I’m going to show you how I made my Halloween costume this year, a Rubik’s cube! I am by no means claiming this as my original idea, because there is no way that i would have come up with this on my own. I got my inspiration from where i get it all from, namely Pinterest I’m sure you’ve heard of it! Without further ado, here is the tutorial:

The things you will need are:
  • Cardboard box
  • Black duct tape
  • Colored paper (6 different colors, but 5 will do)
  • Black elastic band (the thicker, the more comfortable)
  • Needle and thread

When you have all the things gathered, we can get started on the first step…

1| Assemble the box

Now, this step would have been easier for me if I had a box where all the sides where the same. However, I could only get my hands on a rectangle box. Therefore, i took the long way around and cut 4 equal pieces (see exact measurements in the illustration below) out of the first box, to make a new one.

 

image1.png

a. After cutting the pieces you need to tape all the pieces together to form a box without a top and bottom. The reason why I’m making it topless and bottomless is because that way it is easier to fold, and therefore easier to transport. I opted for this because the last thing I want to do is to take the bus either wearing or carrying a big colorful box.

The ideal would be to show you pictures of the process, however I neglected to take any as I was to preoccupied and excited to stop and take pictures. Nonetheless, there is no need to fret as I illustrated all the steps on one of my favorite apps called Paper by 53. That way it will be easier for you to follow, instead of going by my poorly written explanations and instructions!

b. For the second part in assembling the box, you need to make holes where you want the straps to go. The holes are going to depend on the width of your straps. My straps were about 2,5 cm in width, so I made the holes a little bigger than that. Hope my illustrations aren’t too hard to comprehend!

 

image2
2| Add the details

For the details that turn the regular cardboard box into a Rubik’s cube, you need colored paper. In total, you will need 36 squares, 9 for each side. I chose the original colors(red, orange, yellow, green, blue and white), but feel free to use whatever colors you want.

This step is pretty straight-forward as you only need is to first glue on the squares, then tape around them to make the black borders. However, you need to alter some of the squares as they might cover the holes for the straps. It should be harder than snipping of a corner or two. This is also why we made the holes before adding the details; so you wouldn’t have to cut both the cardboard and the squares in one go as this might be difficult.

 

image3
3| Attach the straps

For straps I though that elastic bands would be the most comfortable. The wider the band, the more comfortable it’s going to be on your shoulders. Now, this might be the trickiest part, especially because my drawing skills only go so far. That is why i have to resort to words instead. Okay, here we go! First, thread the band through the hole. Then you roll the band so the frayed edge is facing the band again. This is to keep the frayed edge from more fraying. If you look at the illustration for reference, you’ll see that the fold is facing outwards, but that’s how I ended up doing. It would be ideal to hide the folds, like you normally would. The illustration is a minor fault on my side, but i hope it gives you an idea of how to do it.

image4

NOTICE: the folds are facing outwards in the picture, but it would be ideal to have it facing inwards. Minor fault on my side!

How I wore it

Now, it’s obvious that you can’t wear the box alone, so this is what i paired it with. I went for dark colors that wouldn’t disrupt the colors I already had going on, so for the top I wore a black turtleneck. For the bottom, I wore a burgundy skirt and black knit tights. For shoes, I chose a pair of heeled ankle boots.

And there you have it! A costume that is guaranteed to have people complimenting and asking “Did you really make that yourself?”  Most importantly I hope that my illustrations was helpful rather than making it more confusing.I hope you have a wonderful Halloween with lots of candy and great costumes.

Lastly, thanks for reading!

Sincerley, Beulah

Hello, Stranger!

Hello, stranger who has somehow managed to stumble across my blog, and welcome! 


I’m Beulah and this is my first blog post. This is something I have wanted to do for a while, but it’s only recently that I have sat down and actually made a blog. The sole reason why I want to start this blog is because I want a social outlet for the nonsense that is my brain. 


I don’t intend for this to be a strictly personal blog, but rather an informative blog with the occasional rant. To be more to the point, I want to write and share tips and tricks about things that I’m passionate about (like nails, beauty, a dash of photography and life in general). However, I will also write about life experiences and such. 

About me

Now would be the time to tell you a little about myself. I am a seventeen y/o Norwegian girl, with parents from Sri Lanka, which mean I more or less grew up with two different cultures. My hobbies are reading, drawing, Pinteresting and lastly procrastinating. I am a part-time student and (hopefully, on this blog) full-time me.

I can’t wait to get this blog started. Lastly, I would like to apologise for any grammatical mistakes, English is not my first language. Moreover, this will be a great way to practice my written English! 

Sincerely, Beulah
