July Beauty Favorites + Update

julyfaves

Så var vi her igjen da, siste dagen i måneden. Det har ikke blitt så mye blogging eller video siden junifavorittene, men dere vet jo at jeg har vært travel med å stelle i stand den nye bloggen. Er dere klare eller? Jeg har ennå ikke gitt opp på å få den live på søndag, så dere får bare følge med her eller på Twitter for nyheter! Utenom det så har jo juli vært kanonvarm, men det har vel de fleste av dere opplevd også. Helt greit å få skikkelig sommer i Norge når vi tilbringer fellesferien hjemme. Men nå som det har regnet i nesten en uke så er jeg skikkelig klar for august! Det er en ganske stor måned for oss, som jeg både gleder og gruer meg til. Først av alt så fyller jeg år på lørdag, og det burde jo bli bra, etter det gleder jeg meg til å jobbe masse med bloggen. Men jeg gruer meg veldig til slutten av måneden, for da skal nemlig Eddie begynne i barnehagen. Jeg vet at han trenger å tilbringe tid med andre barn, og jeg tror han er klar for barnehagen, men jeg mener jo fortsatt at han er min baby, og det blir rart (og sikkert litt trist) å ikke ha han hos meg hele tiden. Men det er jo derfor jeg har mye tid til å legge alt i den nye bloggen.

Men nok snikk snakk, det er videotid! Endelig. Sjekk ut alle favorittene mine fra juli nedenfor, og kos deg. Det er mye forskjellig i denne utgaven, alt fra hårpleie til neglelakk. Og et par bøker til slutt, selvfølgelig. Husk å se den i 1080p, og å abonnere på kanalen min!

Current Beauty Obsessions + Summer Edition What’s in my Bag

Da jeg var i Oslo forrige helg gjorde jeg noe spennende, jeg filmet nemlig min første collaboration! Det har vært a long time coming, siden min BFF Anna også lager videos på YouTube. Problemet er bare det at vi bor på hver vår side av landet, og vi får ikke se hverandre så ofte. Noen husker kanskje at jeg var forlover i bryllupet hennes i begynnelsen av juni? Uansett, forrige lørdag filmet vi altså to videos, én til min kanal, og én til hennes. På min kanal har vi filmet et ‘current beauty obessions’, med alle produktene vi har elsket i sommer. For dere som ser på så kan det jo være vanskelig å skille mellom noen jeg liker og noe jeg elsker når dere ser f.eks. månedens favoritt, så jeg syns denne var passende. For dere som har sett mange av videoene mine kommer dere nok til å kjenne igjen mange av produktene, men kanskje dere ser noen nye spennende som Anna har. Jeg håper videoene faller i smak, for vi vil gjerne lage flere når neste anledning byr seg. Dere kan forhåpentligvis se at vi storkoste oss mens vi filmet.

Til Anna sin kanal filmet vi en oppdatert ‘what’s in my bag’ video. Det er ikke så lenge siden jeg laget en sist, men mye kan forandre seg fra vinter til sommer, for ikke å nevne at i denne videoen har jeg med meg min elskede Prada Saffiano Luxe Tote, mens Anna har sin Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Natasha. Så det blir en liten summer edition altså, med masse godsaker. Gi gjerne begge en thumbs up, og abonner på både min og Anna sin kanal.

English: If you follow me on Instagram you may know that I took a little trip to Oslo last Saturday, and I actually went to spend the day with my BFF Anna, who I hardly ever see since we live on opposite coasts. And we did something really fun, we filmed our first collaborations! It was a long time coming since she also does YouTube, and I think it’s pretty obvious in the videos that we had so much fun! Some of you may remember her from my vlog when I was maid of honor at her wedding in June? Anyway, for my channel we filmed our current beauty obsessions, showing all the beauty products we’ve been loving this summer, and that diserve way more then a mention in my monthly favorites. Some of you longtime followers may be familar with a few of my products, but hopefully you’ll see something new as well. And then on her channel, we filmed an updated/summer edition of what’s in our bags. Me with my Prada Saffiano Luxe Tote and she with her Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Natasha. If you enjoy them, please give us a thumbs up because we would love to do more of these in the future. Be sure to also subsribe to my channel, and to Annas.

Essential Brushes

eyebrushes2

Endelig en video! Det har gått litt i ett med sommerferie og jobbing med den nye bloggen, så jeg måtte ta en liten pause fra filming forrige uke. Men nå er jeg tilbake med en god den, nemlig mine essensielle sminkebørster til øyne. Det kan virke som om jeg har alt for mange, men jeg bruker faktisk neste alle hver gang jeg skal gjøre en full makeup. (altså ikke hver eneste dag). Jeg har samlet disse over mange år, og de siste årene har jeg omtrent bare kjøpt backups. Hvis jeg bare kunne beholt én så ville det nok vært MAC 217, fordi den er mest allsidig. Og hvis jeg skulle anbefalt en børste til noen som bare ville ha én eneste, så ville det vært den samme.

Nå blir det vel ganske åpenbart at det ikke blir så aaalt for mye blogging her de neste ukene. Jeg kjenner at jeg er i skikkelig feriemodus, og samtidig så jobber jeg med å få klar min nye blogg, som jeg skal fortelle dere mer om senere. Forløpig lanseringsdato er 1. august! Følg med her for oppdateringer og alt det der, og husk å abonnere på kanalen min i mellomtiden, og den vil forbli som den er nå. Jeg gleder meg veldig mye til litt forandring, og jeg håper dere kommer til å like det ferdige resultatet like godt som jeg gjør!

English: Finally, another video! We’ve been so busy with the summer holiday and I’ve been working on my new blog as well, so I had to take a little break from filming. But I’m back and it’s with a good one! It may seem like alot, but all of the makeup brushes are, obviously, essential to me, and I honestly use almost every single one when I do a full face of makeup (so not every day). I’ve collected these over the years, and I’ve almost only bought backups in the last several years. If, God forbid, I could only keep one, it would probably be the MAC 217, since it’s the most versatile. And if someone wanted to get only one, that is the one I would recommend.

Also, I guess it’s become quite obvious that I won’t be blogging as much as I wanted these days. I’m in hardcore holiday mode, and I’m focusing on my new blog. I’ll tell you more about that one later, but I promise it will be good news for you that have to stick to the translations! The preliminary launch date is set to August 1st, so check back for information. In the meantime, you can subsribe to my channel, which will pretty much stay the same. I’m super excited about the changes coming up, and I hope you will love it as much as I do!

Wishlist for my 26th birthday

wishlist26

Every year when July comes around, I can’t help but think of my birthday. I love any excuse for a celebration and I get excited for just about anything, so you can guess what it’s like in the weeks before my day. I always throw a party and I love having the day be all about me. Being a mom and a wife, I always try to put others first and make everyones lives better, and I think it’s important to take some time in my life and just feel special. Anyway, I also take some time before my birthday and think of the things I not just want, but really want. It may sound silly, but it’s nice, especially since I always want something new and better and brighter and more expensive. True story.

  • Tom Ford Makeup Brushes – It’s not often that I have make-up brushes on my wishlist, but I can’t help but lust for these. These are nothing but luxe, and rumour has it they’re just as fantastic to work with as they look. Reighing surpreme at the top of my list are the bronzer brush and the cheek brush, and hopefully they will settle my quest for the ultimate face brushes.
  • Tory Burch Wallet-on-Chain – This first caught my eye several months ago in white, but alas, that’s long gone. With that gone, the black one is on my radar. I’m in need of small bags, and black always works. It’s just so small and chic, and I can’t get enough of black and gold together.
  • Chanel Beige perfume – While I was in Chanel, waiting for my purchase to be prepared, I got a whiff of this. It certainly wasn’t love at fist sniff (I though it smelt too much like an older lady, much like other Chanel perfumes), but as it developed I fell head of heels in love. This is definetly a more mature scent, but I wouldn’t feel old wearing it. No doubt this will be mine the next time we pass a Chanel boutique since this is part of their Les Exclusifs de Chanel collection that’s only sold in boutiques.
  • La Mer The Concentrate – Skin care has been on my mind lately, and this has been high on my wishlist since trying a sample several years ago. I’m pretty sure this is a miracle in a tiny bottle, but the price tag is huge. I’m honestly sure it’s worth every penny, but taking the plunge and treating yourself to something that expensive is tough.
  • Hermès Clic H/Clic Clac bracelet – I actually got one of these for my birthday last year, and over time I just love it more and more. It’s my most worn bracelet, and I feel I can wear it with anything. So why wouldn’t I want to expand my collection? Gold is my metal of choice, and I’m having a hard time deciding between orange and white enamel, they’re both so chic! My dream combo is silver with pale pink though, but I think that’s quite rare.
  • Louis Vuttion Insolite wallet – Now, I do have a functioning wallet, and I can’t really see myself collecting wallets either, but over time my orange leather continental has become quite worm, especially since Eddie has gotten his hands on it once too many. Since I was so happy with my first wallet invenstment, I can’t help but dream of an even bigger investment. A wallet is something to carry and see several times a day, and if you can, I think you should treat yourself to a nice one. It does make your day a little bit better every time you see it! Now, the multicolour monogram is an aquired taste at best, but I love that it’s a bit tacky because it reminds me of my teenage years when this was super popular and I was just discovering fashion and designer brands.
  • Clarisonic (Aria or Mia2) – In the last month my skin has really been acting up with acne, and it seems like I just can’t get a deep enough cleanse with a regular makeup remover and cleanser regime. In comes the Clarisonic. I hear so many good things about this, I can’t help but think it might be the only thing that can get my skin back to it’s usual bright compelxion. And you know, if it comes in pink, I’ll take it!
  • SKII Facial Treatment Essence – This has been intriguing me for longer than I can remember, probably since seing ads in Chinese magazines 10-15 years ago, but recently it was bumped to one of the top spots, after seeing what Monsiieur Alex had to say about it. Something that can help my skin and help my Creme de la Mer work better? Where do I sign up? Luckily, you can get them in quite small bottles, so hopefully I’ll be able to try this sooner rather than later. Not to mention, how good is Cate Blanchetts face as an ad for this?
  • Marc by Marc Jacobs Henry Glitz Cronograph Watch – There’s no doubt that I’m a bit of an armcandy lover, and I’m obviously inlove with rose gold too. And you know, it’s always nice to tell time. I haven’t actually worn a watch in years, and I do see it more as an accessory then something practical.

Vegas Fashion & Accessories haul!

vegasfashionahaul

I dag går det virkelig ikke fort i svingene! Jeg og Edward sov faktisk til 12 (!) i dag, og da var det faktisk jeg som vekket han. Du kan trygt si at ingen av oss har vært i toppform i dag. Jeg skulle jo skrive dette innlegget i formiddag, men her sitter jeg rett før midnatt og holder på å sovne. Vi skal reise på sommerturné i morgen, så her er det mye som må vaskes, ryddes og pakkes. Kan trygt si at jeg har hatt hendene fulle hele dagen, selv om jeg har hatt litt feber. Men! Jeg skal ikke bare klage, for nå har jeg endelig blitt ferdig med den aller siste bryllupsreiserelaterte videoen. Denne ble jo selvfølgelig alt for lang, men jeg ville ikke akkurat redigere noe bort heller. Dere vet jo hvor glad jeg er i å babble! Jeg har mye fint å vise frem, og jeg er så utrolig fornøyd med alt jeg kjøpte. Nå som jeg er så gammel (og kjedelig) kjøper jeg jo klær som skal vare, og som jeg har lyst å bruke, i mange år fremover, ikke bare i sommer. Mange av klærne har dere kanskje allerede sett hvis dere har sett mine vlogs fra bryllupsreisen, og hvis ikke så burde dere faktisk se de nå! Håper dere orker å se hele, og at dere liker den. Jeg håper alltid at dere liker videoene! Jeg merker at setningene ikke blir så veldig sammenhengene, så nå skal jeg legge meg og bli litt friskere til den lange bilturen i morgen. Husk å se denne i 1080p, og selvfølgelig å abonnere på kanalen min!

English: This has not been a very productive day! I was going to write this post this morning, but here I am and it’s time for bed already. Eddie and I actually got up at noon (!) today, and it was actually I that woke him. It’s safe to say that we’re not feeling our best today. We’re starting our little summer tour tomorrow, and there’s just so much that has to be cleaned and packed and whatnot. Add a fever on top of that, and you have my day. But back to what you’re really here for, and it’s my very last honeymoon related video. It comes as no surprise that this video is crazy long, but you know I love to bable and I didn’t want to edit out too much. I have so many exciting things to show you, and I’m so pleased with everything I got. You may have already seen some of my new clothes in my Vegas vlogs, and if you haven’t I highly recommend you do that now. I hope you actually watch this video, even though it’s so long, and I’ll love you even more for it. As always, I hope you enjoy it as well. I feel like I’m not really the most coherent person right now, so I’ll go get some sleep and hopefully feel better for our long car trip tomorrow. Please remember to watch this in 1080p, and of course to subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already.

Instagrams of June

Nå føles det utrolig lenge siden forrige gang jeg laget et Instagraminnlegg altså, som en liten livstid. Dere vet jo at jeg har vært ute på mye forskjellig denne måneden, og da blir det nesten sånn at to dager føles som en evighet siden. Det er hyggelig å kunne sitte her og se tilbake på begynnelsen av måneden og alt som nesten er glemt. Vegas veier tungt i dette innlegget, og det er jo kanskje ikke så rart! Det som derimot er veldig rart er at vi faktisk var der for to uker siden! What? Jeg syns jeg var rimelig flink til å legge ut bilder mens vi var der, spesielt med tanke på at jeg faktisk ikke hadde mobil. Mye Vegas altså, kanskje litt vel mye Bath & Body Works, en god del shopping, og så fikk jeg avsluttet juni med en dobbel Balenciaga. Slettes ikke så ille! Hvis du vil følge meg på Instagram finner du meg på @kajahytland, samme brukernavn som på Twitter altså.

English: It feels like a lifetime since I did my last IG round-up. As you know I’ve been upto alot this month and when it can easily feel like two days was an eternity ago. It’s nice to be able to look through my Instagram photos from the beginning of the month and remember everything. There’s tons of Vegas pics, which can come as no surprise. I can’t believe we were there only two weeks ago! But I do think I did good with uploading pics while I was there, especially considering I didn’t even have a working phone at that time. Other than Vegas there’s alot of shopping pics, tons of Bath & Body Works (maybe a bit too much), and then I ended the month on a double Balenciaga note. Pretty happy about that actually. If you want to follow be on Instagram you can find me @kajahytland, which is the same as on Twitter.
