July favourites

1. Thorin's key to Erebor. Since it's my birthday soon, Thorin, king of Erebor, was kind enough to give me his key to the hidden door of Erebor as a birthday present. Or my parents gave it to me and it was ordered from eBay ;)

2. Healing shampoo from Four Reasons. My scalp easily gets dry, irritated and itchy (I know, gross) so I started using this shampoo a couple of months ago, hoping it would help with the gross-ness, and it instantly made it all go away. I don't use this every time I wash my hair though, since it's kind of harsh. 

3. Charity Pot from Lush. I've been using this body lotion a lot during the summer months. I usually use it after shaving since my legs get very dry very easily. What's even more cool about this product is that all the money you spend on it (minus tax) goes to a relevant charity in your country. Win-win situation - you give to charity and get a nice product. (:

4. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I plowed through this book. It's one of the best books I've read in a long time. If you're a raging fangirl, like myself, read it! You won't be sorry. 

5. Complete Coverage Concealer from e.l.f. This is the first product I've ever tried from e.l.f and I'm impressed. I didn't expect such a good product for such a cheap price. I love that there's four different shades of concealer in the palette, so you can blend them to your liking and use it even if your skin changes colour as the seasons change.

6. Floral phone case from eBay. This case has been on my phone for the whole month of July. I love the colour of it and I think it has been fitting for the warm weather.

Until next time! // Charlotta

Fairytale forest

I've been spending a lot of time in the forest in the past couple of days. This is partly because the berry / mushroom picking season is starting but it's also because I'm a huge nerd. I am a serious (and when I say serious, I mean serious) fan of Lord of the Rings,The Hobbit, Skyrim and just fantasy in general and if you've read those books (or seen the movies) or played Skyrim you know a lot of those stories take place in big forests. There's just something magical about forests, and I love being in them. Walking through a beautiful forest is even better if you listen to some kind of celtic music, it seriously feels like you're on a quest in a fantasy game of something!
I thought I'd share some photos I've taken on my daily hikes through my local forest. The quality of them are not that good since I took them with my iPhone but nevertheless I hope you feel some of the magic while looking at these photos. (It's even more magical if you listen to this song while scrolling through them ;))
