Trondheim Hamam Spa! WOW Dette m du prve!

Reklame | Trondheim Hamam Spa

 

Spaet pnet drene i 2012, og holder service p hyt niv oppe p Flatsen Senter, Hamstad senter under Bunnprisen.

 

Trondheim Hamam

 

Jeg reklamerer KUN for ting jeg har troen p, dette er en gjemt perle vi har her i fine Trondheim. 

Spaet er perfekt for deg som vil nyte litt ekstra deg-tid, du gr inn med slitt hud kommer ut med fresh, baby myk hud.

Her tilbyr de en haug av behandlinger, nei dette er ikke som det typiske Tyrkiske felles badet du finner p syden turen, dette er et spa med marmor og service s lang yet kan se! 

Jeg klokket inn kl. 12 p en Klassisk Hamam Behandling. Ble henvist til garderoben der jeg fikk ste tfler, badekpe og ett hndkle. Det frste du legger merke til er den fuktige varmen som gr gjennom spaet, det var som at jeg var tilbake i Bali, haha. S var det tid for ett dampbad, her er det fuktig du, men oi s godt kjenne at huden blir mykgjort og porene pner seg gjr seg klare til behandling.

S gikk turen inn til de store glamorse marmor steinene, her skal du vaskes!

 

De skyller deg litt med varmt vann, s lager de skum ? N snakker vi skum i mengder! De har ett tystykke de legger i spevann, s drar de gjennom tystykket og ut kommer bobler, de legger skummet over hele kroppen din, man fler seg godt pakket inn, men overhodet ikke klaustrofobisk.

(bilde lnt fra Trondheim Hamam)

Deretter starter de p bunnen og gnir deg inn med en oliven spe og du fr en god massasje samtidig. Allerede her flte jeg at jeg var i fantasy land, du fler deg s godt tatt vare p, de kan virkelig jobben sin. S skylles spen og skummet av, n er det tid for en skrubb. den flelsen av kjenne den myke, men samtidig faste skrubb hansken g over huden din, er fantastisk. Du bare vet at n ? N er det fornyelse av hud og sjel p gang. Jeg som er ivrig fantast av hudpleie generelt vet viktigheten med en god skrubb, men aldri om jeg kan gjre det s behagelig selv, det lar jeg ekspertene ta seg av, det er jeg glad jeg gjorde! N ligger du der da, med fresh hud som en baby du skylles en gang til.

(Bildet lnt fra Trondheim Hamam)

N er det p tide vaske hr f en skrubb i ansiktet. INGENTING er som f hret vasket av noen andre, du vet den flelsen. Ikke nok med det, du har nettopp hatt en fantastisk skrubb og massasje, du dingler som en geleklump og fr hret vasket samtidig? Bare se deg for deg, dette m du prve.  En skikkelig skrubb er anbefalt minst 4-6 ganger i ret. for meg passet dette helt perfekt n, huden min har slitt etter jeg kom hjem fra Bali, hjem til kalde Norge og huden min lengtet etter fuktighet. N gleder jeg meg til legge ny solbruningskrem.

Etter hrvask og ansiktsskrubb gr man i badstua og varmer seg litt opp igjen. De kommer med ett iskaldt glass vann og du kan sitte der nyte litt fr man gr ut, der mtes man med oppskret frukt, ntter og nydelig te. Kan det bli bedre? Jeg kan ikke stresse nok det at DU m bare komme deg til Trondheim Hamam prve det ut for deg selv, det er en gave til sjelen.

 

S fresh etter behandling!

 

De har masse plass og alt er s si dekket i marmor, det passer perfekt for utdrikningslag, bursdager eller bare som en liten hverdagslft til deg selv.

Dette er en spa service du ikke fr noen andre plasser i Trondheim. Ett unikt konsept, samt massevis av parkering og busser som stopper rett ved siden av. 

 

Jeg legger ved nettsiden deres s dere kan bla i behandlinger, du M ikke ha en Hamam behandlings pakke, de tilbyr ogs kun massasje om du vil. Men jeg vil jo absolutt anbefale ta en pakke nr du frst er i gang, dette er som sagt noe alle burde prve gjre til en fast ting for seg selv eller gi i gave til noen du er glad i.

 

 

Til neste gang <3

What happened?

(Wig From Star Style Wigs - Sponsored)

 

Its been a while since the last blog post, thats because its been hella busy, haha!

As you guys know by now, Im a huge fan of being able to run off to my studio and create something new. But when it all happens at the same time, I get very stressed out, as anyone else would be if everything came crashing at once.

I wanted to share some looks I have done lately in all the chaos, here it is:

 

I did this halfway cut crease on my youtube channel, and the wig is from Star Style Wigs (Sponsored) Yes, I got a new sponsorship deal with them and Im so happy to share that with you guys, I dont talk about stuff I dont care about or fit my life, so getting a deal with them was perfect! I absolutely love their wigs. I make a whole bunch of new characters all the time, so whats better than having the hair to go with it? You can check out their site here.

Here is the video:

I did this "unicorn" look while having a Snapchat-takeover. I took inspiration from the internet and made it my own. Its long between me using cold colored eyeshadows on myself, so this was a fun creation to have in my collection of creatures.

And then it was all about Marilyn Monroe! Holy moly, it is not easy to create a look that can resemble the unique queen of the 50s! But after studying her looks on the internet, I think I got it. I used, of course, a whole bunch of contour and different techniques than they would use on here back in the days, but it was really fun to try to recreate her iconic look.

And here I got the exact same makeup on, but different hair! Even the dress is the same! But look how much hair can do! :)

 

And as the weekend came close, an old friend of mine came to visit. You know the friends you havent seen for years, and you are afraid you lost contact with them, but you end up having the same laughs as before!? Yes, it was like that. You just gotta love your friends for sticking with you through thick and thin. Of course, I had to put my friends up in my makeup chair, and give them a little transformation, hehe. And even brought them along while I was cleaning my makeup brushes! It is so important to clean your brushes, Im just the person that wants to share that knowledge with the entire world, yes, many of you guys know how to clean them, but it doesn't hurt to get a reminder to clean your brushes anyways! ;)

 

Until next time <3

Fun photoshoot and whats next?

(photo: @cassandra_coste)

 

I got asked by the beautiful photographer @cassandra_coste to come down one day and shoot some photos! It was so much fun, and she is really talented and nice as well. Cassandra attends her first year in photography at Trondheim Fotofagskole, I think she will reach extremely far with her passion for photography.

(photo: @cassandra_coste)

 

I love meeting new photographers, they all have their different style and setup. Its a form of art Ive never managed to pull off myself, and Im always so fascinated to see the whole process from being in front of the camera to getting the finished product out.

(photo: @cassandra_coste)

 

I love pictures in black and white, it just amplifies every shadow and makes the light magical.

Thank you so much for a super fun day! I hope you all go out and create!

 I also made a short little "behind the scenes" video so you can check it out here:

 


 

 

Back in my studio in Norway!

Instagram: reallymili

 

I'm so incredibly happy to be home again, 2 months of travel in Indonesia, was fun! Dont get me wrong, hehe. But in the end, I was missing my makeup studio a lot! Just being able to sit down and play with new makeup products, new makeup looks and listen to music - For me that is life.

I also created a new makeup challenge called #funkyfoundationchallenge :) This is of course just for fun, but I would love to see your take on it.

 
 
I must admit that going from 32 Degrees Celsius in Bali to minus 20 Degrees Celsius back home in Norway, was extremely harsh! Not only to mention that my skin was so smooth and nice in Asia the whole time I was there, I didnt use body lotion once! But less than 24 hours being back home I was dry as the desert again, haha. I guess thats what you get for living up north. The only thing that can save me back home now is my skincare routine and my electric blanket.
 
 
(annonse: Sigma Beauty Crme De Couture Palette)
 
The one thing I missed the most makeup wise in Bali was colors! I had only packed a bunch of my everyday look pallets and that turned out to be brown shadows, haha. So the first thing I grabbed in my studio was this palette I got in a PR package from Sigma Beauty. I loved the palette, was super easy to blend the colors and they really popped on the eyes when I put down a concealer. I never bother to promote things I dont like, so yeah. I really liked this one. And you can get all the makeup details from this look at my Instagram.
 
 
 
And right before I was about to wash my face, I had already taken my false lashes off - I just had to put down some creative liner work.

Im still working on my secret project that is coming your way this spring! Im so super duper excited to tell you guys about it!
And in the upcoming weeks, I got a lot of fun things going on, a few photoshoots next week and some fun collaborations coming out soon as well :) 
 
So until next time <3

Luxury in Bali - Naked!

@reallymili

 

Processed with MOLDIV

(Private pool = Skinny dipping)

 

Again I was so tired of not having HOT water in my AirBnb apartment down in Denpasar, I packet my bag and left for a luxury escape!

I found a nice Private Villa & Spa Hotel in Sanur. I got the entire villa all by myself, with kitchen, big bathtub, the spider Benjamin, two TVs and a private pool. This was luxury for little me - First thing I did was to take a long and well deserved HOT shower, hehe. Need too feel clean when in heaven.

 

The kitchen and living room had no doors and were fully open to the tropics, and with that spiders come along.....

(Benjamin is a Huntsman spider - I think)

 

But he was cool, really laidback when I left him alone... But the problem was that he was all over me at one point while having my bath. Got in a fight, don't worry, Benjamin is still very much alive - My anxiety level is a whole other story.

 

 

(Living room & Kitchen)

 

 

And I found Korean Skincare at the shop the other day, so I had to try on the pore-defining two-part sheet mask and do a classy selfie in the mirror. Did it work? Not really, but the smell was nice.

 

"Sometimes you gotta treat yourself to yourself"

 

 

If you're in Bali, Indonesia - Make sure to at least spend on or two nights at a fancy resort to really treat yourself! :) It is very inexpensive!

The difference between Denpasar, Ubud, Sanur & Kuta - Bali Travel!

 

(Kuta Beach)

 

I'm renting an Airbnb in Denpasar. The house is big and has 3 bedrooms, outdoor kitchen but a huge lack in hot water, ha-ha. 

I remember the day I arrived, hot, humid and exhausted. Drove up to the house in Denpasar and I thought it was a joke. The masses of garbage and filth outside the house was alarming. Chickens eating stuff on the ground and dogs eating leftovers from a diaper. And the smell! And not to mention the shitting cow right outside the doorstep. This is Denpasar, its extremely filthy, smelly and the air is contaminated. The people are friendly and they leave you alone. Most shops dont have a door, and everyone is selling gasoline on a glass bottle and some kind of meat on a stick.

 

(My neighbourhood cow shitting)

 

When in Denpasar, watch out for stray dogs and cats. They dont look healthy at all, full of scabs and bloodstains from fights. They will bite if you approach them, but if you stay on a scooter youre safe.

My Airbnb is located with locals, a tiny road off the main road, narrow and a bit dodgy. When driving in the dark, be aware of frogs, snakes and spiders on the road or your scooter.

(Parts of my neighbourhood)

 

Ubud, I went once at a hotel for new years and once for taking pictures and exploring. Its the place to be if you want jungle, fresh air and hipster food. Ubud has a little bit of everything, and the drive up to Ubud is amazing on its own, lots of beautiful rice fields and temples by the road. Ubud has lots of street art, art stores and art classes, if thats your thing, Ubud is for you. A short walk in a narrow side street and you go from busy city centre to mesmerizing rice fields and jungle views. Ubud also has lots of yoga and vegan retreats, cooking classes, spirulina-farm and fancy hotels.

 

(Street Art, Ubud)

(Jungle, Ubud)

 

Sanur isnt far from Denpasar, but has golden sand beaches and a ton of tourists to come with it. They have a huge rage of Spas to choose from, cheap to really expensive. I went to Cosmo Spa and was very satisfied with their pedicure, but dont ask for "Full service Massage" in Bali if you dont know what it is...! Haha. More about that in Kuta.

 

(Sanur Beach)

 

Sanur also has an huge beach walk shopping road. Here you can get all the fake or authentic stuff you need to bring back home as gifts. You need to be able to bargain yourself a good price, otherwise they will rip you off big time. Everything can be bought at least half of the price they first tell you. "Special price for you" is pure bullshit. Ha-ha. Come to Sanur if you want nightlife, food from known chains and a cheaper stay than Kuta. 

 

Kuta is the mecca for nightlife, prostitution and pocket theft. Make sure to keep an eye on your belongings and dont look local girls on the street in the eyes, they will offer you a full service massage - Doesnt matter if youre a guy or a girl, and they wont stop until you pass by 100 meters, no kidding. Here you can find all the shopping you want, from big stores as H&M, Swarovski, The Body shop and many more at the shopping malls, and you can get the famous Balinese hand carved woodwork on the streets along with the fake stuff. Their English is much better here than any of the other places, that has to do with the abundance of tourists staying here. They have the famous "Kuta Beach", I went down there right after I arrived, you have to know that beaches in Bali, in general are very dirty. They dont pick up garbage at all, all the plastic and other humbug stuff will flush up on the beach no matter what or where in Bali you are.

In Kuta it wasnt as bad as the beaches down in Sanur, but bad enough to make it look too dirty for a dip. 

But people arent scared of a little garbage here - The sea is packed with tourists getting their first surf in. The waves in Kuta are long and perfect for a beginner. Local boys lend you a surfboard for about 5 bucks, and off you go. 

 

(White Rose Hotel, Kuta)

 

Dont be discouraged reading this, Bali is beautiful - You just have to have an open mind, or check in to a 5 star hotel so you dont see the reality. Ha-ha.

I love the rice fields and the people are super nice and friendly. I travel by scooter, that way I have seen so many beautiful places and discovered new side roads, I wouldn't do that in a car. Buy a SIM card with lots of data, the Wi-Fi here is just stupid. Google Map is your new friend and a good one as well! I use it daily to discover new places and fun things to do.

Now Im heading back to Denpasar from Kuta, gonna be good to see my neighborhood cow again! ;)

New Years Eve in Ubud, Bali!

 

Happy New Year!

I put my ass on the scooter and drove 45 minutes from Denpasar, up to Ubud to celebrate New Years Eve in a fancy hotel with a swimming pool and hot water!

I took my first hot shower in over a month, have to be honest and say that I almost cried during that shower... Oh my did I miss the hot water! Been staying down in Denpasar at an AirBnB apartment, they said they had hot water... But sadly, its not even a single drop where am at, hehe. So this shower was very much appreciated!

I got super clean and fancy for the evening, I put on some makeup as well, its been a while since I bothered to do that, hehe. Im out traveling with a raw vegan chef @therawadvantage, he had some friends staying up in Ubud and cooking food for the night, so we ended up spending new years with them. Beautiful location surrounded in rice fields, jungle and fireflies. 

(Rice Terrace Fields, Ubud)

Today I had some pool-time as well, the sun was scorching up in the sky, it didn'tt take long before I burnt my entire body tho, hehe! Perfect start for 2018!

 

On my instagram, @reallymili I posted 9 of my favourite makeups I did in 2017! Its been a crazy, creative, fun and hectic year with travels, new friends and connections! I cant wait to bring you guys even more creative makeups in 2018! 

 

 

So again, thank you so much for 2017 - Lets keep the spirit alive in 2018! :)

Durian - The Worst or The Best?

 

Last night we found a new fruit market while we were looking for the king of fruits, the almighty durian. 

Ive heard many stories of this smelly fruit and I can say that Ive heard way more terrible stories than good ones. It was for this reason that I kept on delaying to try my first durian, a voice in my head kept telling me to DO NOT DO IT, it smells so strong, it cannot be good for you! 

But here in Bali, I found it, the tiniest, cutest, and sweet smelling durian and it was time! 

 

Oh, holy smokes was it amazing!!! Now Im sad I didnt try it sooner, hehe.

What is durian?

Wikipedia answers you:

"The durian is the fruit of several tree species belonging to the genus Durio. There are 30 recognized Durio species, at least nine of which produce edible fruit, and over 300 named varieties in Thailand, 102 in Indonesia, and 100 in Malaysia. Durio zibethinus is the only species available in the international market: other species are sold in their local regions."

"Regarded by many people in Southeast Asia as the "king of fruits", the durian is distinctive for its large size, strong odor, and formidable thorn-covered rind. The fruit can grow as large as 30 centimeters."

"Some people regard the durian as having a pleasantly sweet fragrance, whereas others find the aroma overpowering with an unpleasant odor. The smell evokes reactions from deep appreciation to intense disgust and has been described variously as rotten onions, turpentine, and raw sewage. The persistence of its odor, which may linger for several days, has led to the fruit's banishment from certain hotels and public transportation in southeast Asia. By contrast, the nineteenth-century British naturalist, Alfred Russel Wallace, described its flesh as "a rich custard highly flavored with almonds". The flesh can be consumed at various stages of ripeness, and it is used to flavor a wide variety of savory and sweet desserts in southeast Asian cuisines. The seeds can also be eaten when cooked."

 

Well my first experience with durian was amazing, here are some of the tastes that I tasted: pineapple, black pepper, sugar, garlic, banana and ice cream. It was like nothing Ive ever tasted before, my tastebuds were all over the place and it took me a second to know if I loved it or not. It was so hard to focus on one flavor, they all came hitting me at once, hehe. 

If you havent tried it, please do - It was so much fun! 

 

Tonight Ill be hunting for more!

See tutorial here:

bjXlF5fyoco


This is my first ever makeup tutorial here in Bali, must be honest and say it was a hot one, hehe. Im so used to be filming in my studio back home in Norway with my beloved Canon 750d camera, so to get this tutorial done in one go on my travel camera Sony Cybershot was a bit of a struggle, but it all worked out in the end. The light kept on shifting during shooting and the makeup was all over the place in the end, hehe. I had the makeup on an entire day after shooting, and I must say I was super impressed by the foundation in the tropical heat - It seriously staid put.

Products used in the tutorial:

Makeup Mekka Creamy Concealer

RCMA No Color Powder

NYX Perfect Filter Palette Golden Hour

Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional

The newspaper called me the other day and wanted to talk a little about a new skincare & Makeup store that is launching in my hometown Trondheim, Norway.

Im super happy to see that new and innovative brands pop up in Norway as well, we sure do need it. Rituals are the name of the store, originally from the Netherlands. Cant wait to explore the store when I get back home. Here is my interview:

Other than that its been chill here in Bali the last few days, I discovered a new beach in Sanur. At first, I thought it was a tourist place, but after spending 5 minutes on the beach I realized it was a local and sweet little beach. Spent 30 mins there sunbathing to get my D-Vitamins for the day, then I got on the scooter and ended up in a BIG mall, soooo now Im sitting here in my bed/office testing out some new things Ive got... Like, freeze dried durian... Wish me luck! 

Much love, see you soon!

Black Sand Beach in Bali!

(Keramas, Bali)

 

It was stupid HOT today, woke up almost choking on heat! Quickly realized that the power was out and the air condition was no longer working... A little message to the landlord, and it got fixed.

Had my go-to breakfast, pitahaya, banana, and mangosteens - It was delicious as always. 

Im traveling with a guy who calls himself the #banacommander, also known as The Raw Advantage on YouTube. And he likes to surf, a lot. He took me down to the Black Sand Beach in Keramas. It was beautiful, they even got a little surf restaurant going on there. Tried to take some footage of him surfing today, but the surf was not up... But I mixed up a little vlog on youtube for you guys to check out here on - Reallymili on YouTube. It will be up tonight at 21:30 Indonesian time.

After a couple of tries to get the surf on, we headed back to the house to eat some more fruit... Did I tell you guys about the amazing fruit here? NO! It is mindblowing for sure! If you ever visit Bali, make sure to eat lots and lots of fruit. 

 

The other day we went sightseeing a little bit, found this amazing rice-field. Had to pose in front of it, of course, have a little boho-chic moment.

Worst market Ive ever been to in Bali!

 

Pasar Badung Market 

 

A couple of days ago I went to a food market here in Bali that was supposed to be one of the best ones here......

 

Yeah, that was a good load of bullshit. Parked the scooter after paying entry. Put my feet on the ground, immediately saw it wasnt water, but some kind of moldy-dirty substance I stepped in. Great. I looked up as I was hanging my helmet on the scooter, a BIG rat came by snacking on some dead stuff. The entire place smelled like death.

It wasnt off to a great start I must say, but I thought it would look better once I got up by the fruit.

I walked up a small hill, on each side they had buckets upon buckets with dead smelly fish, my nose at this point almost passed out. 

I got up the hill and found the fruit.... Oh Lordy lord. Oh no! Oh no no. Not if my life was depended on it would I eat the fruit they had laying around there. They placed fruits in small baskets on the wet smelly ground with all the rats hanging around it, they offered to slice you a bite of the fruit with dirty hands and knifes. At this point, my whole body was in shock.

I know Im a person that takes hygiene seriously, I like it that way. So this ended up being a fun, but crazy experience of a new part of Bali instead, hehe. 

They had a bunch of chicken for sale as well, the heads were off and they cut the feets off too, I saw a guy sneeze right on the chicken while doing it. They laid the chicken out on a low table out in 87 Fahrenheit, delicious meal for someone I guess.

 

But yeah, the fun and extremely troubling thing here - Is that Im not even exaggerating!

 

Do visit this market if:

You want to see why you should wash your fruit & vegetables. You want to get a look at the local scene. You are a blogger that covers market or places in Bali were not to eat at. You want to experience something totally different.

 

Do not visit this market if:

Living my raw vegan dream in Bali!

 

 

It all comes down to food, right? 

For me, this food subject has been all over the place for years. Ive been the person that overeats, do not eat as much as I should, not wanting to try new foods, indulging in fast foods so on and so on. 

I went vegan almost 3 years ago now after being a meat eater for 31 years, and this year I tried for the first time raw vegan food.

In Norway during summer I can get a hold of a good selection of tropical fruits, but when thats said you also have to remember that the fruit is picked too early from the tree and shipped out. So the quality of the fruit is below average when it comes to sweetness and a good meal. 

This summer I indulged in watermelon, melons in general, pitahaya, papaya, and mangosteens. It was an awesome change from vegan cooked food to get these fruits in, I felt happy and vibrant. 

I also made a bunch of raw vegan dishes, as zoodles (zucchini noodles), tomato dressings, avocado dressings and more. It took me a while to adjust from cooked food to raw, but it all just made sense to me.

 

When the season changed to fall/winter, I quickly found myself freezing cold to the bone at all times. So I figured Id balance my food with one cooked meal every day between the fruits. Mostly rice. 

But then I felt a huge difference in my sleeping pattern again, I became more lazy and tired. 

I sat there freezing cold, lazy and absolutely no fresh exotic fruits to eat. 

BALI! Bali is tropical, Bali has fruits growing that I adore. 

This summer I went to Denmark Fresh Food Festival as well, we talked a little about where people were going to spend their winter at. Bali came up, but at that point, I didnt think that it was actually going to happen.

But here I am, in Bali. Eating the best fruits Ive ever eaten, Im here getting to know a new culture and exploring the island.

I feel so blessed to be here, for the first time ever doing something just for myself. 

Ive spent 33 winters back home in Norway, my skin cracked, everything is dark and cold, it literally fucked with my mood being so locked in a cold place with nowhere to go.

Here my skin cleared up in two days, my mood is super vibrant cause of all of the fresh good quality fruits. It's rain season here with a heavy flood every night, making it so moist and humid.

Everyone should experience this once in a lifetime, or make it a full lifestyle.

Do you - when you feel the urge.

Learning new things in Bali!

 

I woke up today with a throbbing headache and stuffy nose. But the rest of me is totally fine. I think its from the stuffy weather and the popping volcano just popped again the other day, so its been gloomy up in the sky. Or it might just be that Im adjusting to the tropics. Its all gonna be fine, hehe.

 

Our landlord here in Bali came by one day with his wife. He asked if it was ok for her to pray outside the house by the temple they have here. Of course, it was! 

It is so beautiful when they light the scented incense and lay down the flowers on the statue. 

He said that they pray for balance, the family, the family theyve lost and they prayed for us. 

And the flowers she used comes from the three right here in our garden, its huge and the flowers grow right at the top of the tree.

 

 

I felt blessed and humbled. I asked about a good place to get a decent papaya, he said on the Main Street. Suddenly the wife was gone, a few minutes later she was back with the biggest papayas Ive ever seen! How sweet was she!

 

One thing to remember in central Bali is that its dirty...! When using a scooter - Protect yourself, this is me at 30 degrees celsius humid weather and a helmet that is too big for me, hehe. 

 

And this is my neighboorhood - Scruffy dogs are quite common here.

 

A lovely host, beautiful house, the temperature is tropical and now Im in my underwear.

 

Bali, You are impressive!

Whats my plan in Bali?

 

So many of you guys have asked me what Im doing in Bali for so long?! Well... In my last post, I stated that Im not a fan of the cold winters in Norway, so thats one thing Im doing - Im done being cold to the bone.

 

Im also eating raw vegan food, l started for real this summer with raw food. The last months Ive included 1 cooked meal every day just to try to get my heat in, but I gotta be honest and say.... Im much more vibrant and happy when eating fully raw vegan. My body responds better overall. In Bali, its no shortage of fresh beautiful fruit!

Of course, Im gonna make "what I eat in a day" videos when Im there, so you can see as well.

 

Maybe I will make some makeup videos also, I was thinking "lightweight makeup in the tropics"... Let me know!

 

And Im working on a bigger, amazing and secret project Im bringing with me. This is gonna take up most of the time and I cannot wait to show you guys when its ready!

 

Other than that.... Learn a new culture, see a brand new city & small towns, try to avoid the horrible snakes and spiders...

Pink All The Way!!!

Instagram

 

So this is one of the last creations from my studio before I head to Bali for the winter.

Im a huge fan of pink... DUH! 

Almost every time I sit down and create, I end up being just about 70%++ pink when I call it the night.

I cant help myself, pink is just the happiest color of them all!

 

In this look, I used a lot of face paint and eyeshadow for blending. The rest is up to you, it is so incredibly important in my eyes to let yourself be creative, just do. I know its super easy to get inspiration from all over the internet, but what are you? 

I try, at least once a month to sit down, with no plan what so ever and start painting. 

Lets be honest, Im not always happy with everything I make, but I also know that this is how I learn. Im obsessed to learn new things all the time, its just a part of us as human beings.

 

So this is what I came up with, the look has no name, its just pink. 

Hope you like it and I really hope you treat yourself to create something crazy as well!

Im going to Bali!!!

(Big Beach, Maui Hawaii)

 

Im going to BALI!!! Oh, my freaking word! As you probably can tell - Ive never been there!

Cant wait to see the sun again, its not a secret that I dont like winter... I've been in Norway for 34 winters! Thats way too much if you ask me, so this time I decided to do something totally different.

So right now Im packing, hehe. Im not very good at planning what to bring or what to wear when I go somewhere, but hopefully this time I wont overpack as I did when I went for a month in Los Angeles & Hawaii, haha.

Current situation:

In the last blog post you could see that I love my boho-dresses, so in Bali, im gonna wear long light dresses all the time, it takes less space and they are so super comfy! Im also bringing my Xero-shoes for the best comfort for my feet & they look awesome with any dress or shorts. I might also bring some lightweight running shoes, just in case of rainy days. Speaking of rainy days, this time of year in Bali - It's the rain season!!! I have no idea on how much it would rain, or if it gets cold during the rain... But - Im winging it! I will let you guys know when Im down there.

First time spending Christmas in the tropics - It feels heaven!

Boho Makeup & LookBook

Processed with VSCO with b1 preset

Instagram & Youtube - reallymili

I have always been a tomboy, not ever learned really how to dress for anything...

I always felt weird in social settings, hehe. But it all kinda changed when I got my long hair and dreads in.

#ad I use Peaks Tape extensions and I got my dreadlocks from Dreads U.K.

All the sudden I felt more feminine on the outside again, I started to integrate my hair into pictures again.

Over the years I have found that I really love the bohemian clothing, its not too tight on my body I feel free and comfortable wearing them.

The feel of a long white lace dress - Was just perfect!

Dude... Dont get me wrong, I still show up in baggy jeans and a hoodie, but at least now - I know its ok to rock a dress as well.

Welcome to my new blog! A recap of this years Halloween

Hi, guys! Welcome.

I do makeup on an everyday basis, so you can only wonder how busy the Halloween season gets here in my studio. This year was crazy, but I loved every second of it. I figured since this is my very first blog post, that you guys could get to see some pics that not yet have been released. I was super lucky as well to be invited to NYX Cosmetics Nordics #getlithalloween Party in Oslo, it was so much fun, and the best way to end this year Halloween. Hope you like it :) 

This was my costume and makeup at the NYX Party:
