Make ME Up from Head to Foot


Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

As I mentioned in my previous post Make Me Up, I’d been educating myself about makeup.

I’ve asked around and did some research about the makeup suggestions I got from friends. And here is one of the suggested brand …

A makeup artist friend bragged about KRYOLAN.

I’ve checked this brand and found out that my makeup artist friend had all the reason to brag about it!

Kryolan is a specialized manufacturer of professional make-up serving theater, film, and television around the globe.

They deliver to customers in more than 80 countries on all continents of the world and is an acknowledged trademark for professional make-up artists.

The name KRYOLAN and its other trademarks stand for professional competence, high product quality, exceptional diversity, professionalism, flexibility and tradition.

Kryolan was also the official cosmetics of Miss Universe 

Miss Universe 2009

Miss Universe 2010

Miss Universe 2011
Ooohhhh…wouldn’t anyone want to look like a winner 🙂 Perhaps with Kryolan I could 🙂 wish…..

Kryolan not only manufactures makeup, mind you. On November 2010, they launched their Holiday 2010 collection which included a great number of fancy false eyelashes of different colors and styles from classic ones to quite bold glam looking.

If you are daring enough pick out one of those fancy flashy eyelashes of gaudy purple, pink or variegated colors to obtain glam holiday look.

And for those of you who are not ready yet for so eccentric holiday look Kryolan makeup prepared a set of classy but not less fancy false eyelashes to select from.

Those are the facts about this brand. And from someone less pro, I found a review from Ms Domini D. and here’s what she wrote about Kryolan:

Now, I can’t wait to get my hands on some of Kryolan products. I would very much like to see how this professional makeup behaves with my amateur skills.

I love painting and thought…. it could be fun to put makeup on my whole body and treat it like a canvas 🙂

Then I might feel sexy and beautiful like Giselle Bundchen and dare to pose for a photo shoot… L.O.L.

This brand might be too pro for me, but it wouldn’t hurt to try 🙂 Who knows, I might somehow manage to surprise myself. After all, it’s Kryolan we’re talking about!

Now who wouldn’t want to try to look like this


I’ll take up another makeup brand on my next post! Guess which one ….. hmmmmm….

Stay tuned 🙂

Rain, rain go away…

It’s been raining a lot this summer here in Norway. And I can count all the days we had the sun shining to our faces and warming our skins and giving some lovely tan. Not much outdoor activities for me when it’s raining cats and dogs 😦

So far my family and I have managed to:

Visit Agricultural School in Ås (see more photos in my post  “Norwegian Blue” )

Wearing Denim by Vero Moda, very comfortable Skechers shoes and old Prada sunglasses that day.

Then one time the sun came shining beautifully in the middle of the day, so we decided to go canoeing

…with Farmor (father’s mother) and Besten (grandpa)…

and had a picnic around Rygge area.

“My Precious” pattering and enjoying the weather 🙂

Since I was the photographer, you only get to see my shadow here 🙂

me & my shadow

Days have passed by then finally … good news: sunny weather on the 17th !!! One of my brothers called me and we agreed to meet in Tusenfryd Amusement Park. We were so excited, aside from the nice weather (not clear blue sky though MUCH better than rain), it was my kids first trip to this park. And on my end, I would finally get to see the “new” rides. Believe it or not,  the last time I was in this park was during the first year it opened – which was decades ago…LOL…

Outfit of the day: Saint Tropez top, Gaultier jeans and Fendi sunglasses

Watched a bit of circus while relaxing…

Wearing my favourite Skechers

Playing with my cute 8 month old nephew.

with Adrian Matthews

I just stood and waited (quite long) to take some shots and video of these guys, but I had so much fun. Look at these facial expressions …. priceless… LOL

My mum, daughter, brother & son in “Tømmerstupet” (lumber plunge)

Time to go tracking for some adventure at “Eventyrstien” and stumble on some trolls…

with my daughter Camilla Alexandra

Getting ready to head home – the park closes at 7pm – but first, a ride in “Grandpa’s car”.

Virgo & Christian in “Bestefars bil”

Lastly, a commercial shoot with Stabburet leverpostei (lever pâté) … ha..ha…ha…

My brothers Virgo & Jeff, my daughter’s bunny and me & my son

What a marvelous day …. Moments definitely to be treasured 🙂

From an adventurous sunny day to a warm and serene trip… Last Thursday was the last time we enjoyed the sun – so far. We went to Jeløy and visited a place called Edith’s Garden.

photo taken by my daughter

It was a beautiful day for a stroll esp. in a place such as this. We ate cakes and pastries in their cozy café,

Alfred’s Café

had some ice cream in their garden and watched the kids play,

C.A.S.H. & the bunny

visited some galleries around the area …

A painting club house

and admired a vintage truck we found along the way.

Super Dexta vintage truck

We drove to a Hotel/Restaurant a few miles away to have an early dinner. A truly splendid place with delicious cuisine! They even got a Rolls Royce waiting for us to give us a tour around the area!!!

Refsnes Gods

That was of course just a joke 🙂 We didn’t reserve the RR.  It was only parked there coincidently so I could have a photo taken beside it … lol

RR & me

Perhaps the Fendi shades, Bulgari and Tiffany bracelets, necklace and ring from Briel might somehow go with Rolls Royce, but my Radcliffe dress, Skechers ballerina flats, Friis&Co. bag and fabulous looking bangles from a flea market absolutely didn’t. The photo was nice though..ha..ha..ha…

Refnes Garden

A little stroll in the garden after a delicious dinner, then it was time to go home. Indeed a delightful day, it was!!!

A bottle of wine, fruits and ice cream awaits us at home.

The summer season is not over yet. We still have a month – well so I hope, but I wish the rain would go away and come again some other day ’cause we certainly want more of these glorious days 🙂

A wonderful weekend to all …..
