We got puppies <3

Last Saturday morning our french bulldog got four puppies! We have been waiting and waiting, now finally they are here ❤

IMG_0556Tursday and friday we were basically staring at her constantly so we knew exactly when the water broke to have everything under control. The race french bulldog have very small hips and someone have to take Cesarean. We made an agreement with the veterinarian to drive to her when the water breaks, in case she needed a Cesarean. We went to her 04.20 and Phebe was pushing, but nothing came out so unfortunately we had to do the surgery. Everything went perfectly fine, and when we saw the puppies, we understood why she couldn’t give natural birth, one of the puppies were a giant! There was 4 beautiful mini frenchies and we are so happy!

Two of the puppies were very small and had trouble with the sucking reflects. We fed them with bottle and one of them got the sucking reflex right after short time so she could eat her mothers milk right away. The other were a bit slower, but when she got the reflex right, she couldn’t let go of her mother, now she is so healthy and chubby like they suppose to be.IMG_0610

After 3 days, one puppy stopped eating, she become weaker and we had to start giving her bottlefeed. She ate, but not as much as we wanted, she barely gained weight and her skin became so pale. We were very worried and called the veterinarian. We made an appointment with her for this morning to give her a vitamin shot, it’s not so much else you can do when they are this small.  This night my boyfriend woke me up at 05 a’clock and she was no longer with us. We did what we could, but unfortunately it is very common that a puppy dies before they are two weeks old. We named her Scarlet ❤IMG_0632

We are so sad, and this it is harder then i thought i would be, our baby girl is gone. Phoebe were searching for her for a few hours, but i kept taking her back to the her puppy grind, and now she seems fine. Luckily the three others are healthy and good. So we really hope they don’t get sick and leave us too. We are watching them closely, i took days off work to take care of them. We also check the during the night. The mother is tired but in good shape, we were a bit afraid that she got the milk fever because she was so hot and were breathing heavy. We are giving her some milk to get the calcium level up, during the pregnancy she have been eating puppy food for extra nutrients and she is still eating that. She is better and we give her just as much attention as the puppies. She really trust us with them and we can stay close when we want.

They are so adorable ❤ We try to focus on the babies that’s left so we don’t have to feel so sad all the time.

Thoughtful boyfriend

I really have THE best boyfriend ever, sorry girls -the last real gentleman, loving and supporting man is taken. After 4 years together he still treats me like a princess and get puppy eyes every time i give him a kiss on his cheek, holding his hand or just look him in the eyes. What more can a girl want? He has his flaws off course, for example: he is the slowest person i in the world and that drives me nuts, but still best boyfriend ever ❤ Love you Federico ❤

He knows i’m working hard to get in shape and gives me compliments every day. i have lost 10 kilos, witch is so amazing for me to finally get results, super proud of myself – it has really given me better confidence, witch is so important to have. I have about 5 kilos more to loose -maybe i can get a sixpack this summer (no, not the fitness model type -thats impossible to maintain) Well, i must mention that March was a crazy moths with long hours at work and that resulted in too much chocolate, i needed the energy and i took the shortcut. So now i gained a liiitlebit back, but it’s nothing to cry about, i know I’m gonna loos that in maybe 1,5 week as long as i continue working hard as i’ve been.

To make me feel better and confident he gave me this amazing compression workout tights from X2U, witch is very popular now.

The science of compression has long been used to improve blood circulation through use of compression stockings. The improved blood flow – which, in turn, increases oxygen to the muscles – will theoretically result in increased performance.

Compression clothing is also said to potentially enhance sporting performance by:

  • reducing muscle oscillation (vibration),
  • increasing proprioception (the awareness of position of joints in space), and
  • they may also make you more aerodynamic.

All these effects could result in shorter time: increased strength, greater endurance and/or more skilful play – results which are a playground for sportswear marketers, how great is that? Compression tights may also reduce stress injuries, but to get best result, they say  that you should not only wear them during training, but for 24 hour after also. So maybe i should buy one to use as pajamas? 😛

Only reason why i haven’t bought it myself is because its expensive and i don’t like to buy expensive clothes when i want to change my body and get slimmer. But i fit size small, so that was a good thing 😛 My goal is not a certain number in size or weight, it’s about feeling good about myself.

He also gave me a shampoo and conditioner from Bed Head, then have such good products and the smell heavenly! I already have a couple of these in the shower, but I’m exited to try out these.

I am not saying he is amazing just for giving me things, but it’s the thought behind it that i think is so sweet, and the fact that he wants me to feel better. He is the best 🙂

Btw, The name of the products are “Dumb blonde” hope thats not a hint, haha!

Beauty and wellbeing all the way

I am addicted to hand cream, i wash my hands so many times during the day that the get extreamly dry. My favorite hand cream is actually a hand mask, but i used it as a cream to not “waste” product by using the double amount then wipe off the rest after 10 min. Unfortunately that cream cost about 45 euro, so i tried to find a more economic product. I found “Mineral mud hand protector” from Talia (never heard of that brand).

The consistence is perfect, thik like body butter and its really moisturize my poor hands. I  bought it online and got the package in the mail today, during lunch break i run to get the package so i could use my new handcream, not kidding i was desperate -hahaIMG_0273

This spray “Uniq one” from Revlon is amazing, it smells like a summer day at the beach with a pina colada in your hand.

Why use it:

  1. Repairs dry and damaged hair.
  2. Adds shine and control frizz.
  3. Heat protector
  4. Silkness
  5. With UVA and UVB filters
  6. Easier brushing and ironing.
  7. Incredible detangling
  8. Long-lasting hairstyle
  9. Split ends prevention
  10. Adds volume

My best friend have been using “The after party” from Bed head. It is a cream for making your hair more smooth and silky, but it’s almost like a leave in hair mask. It smells really good also. Now, finally i have my own, it only took about a year of so to order it for myself..IMG_0269

Moisturizing gel gloves from Geluscious. I allready have socks like this from Bliss. I thought it was a good idea to try this for the hands. I will test it out this night! It last 40 Treatments.

BlondeMe is a really good series of hair products created for blondes. This is a moisturizing spray, with purple pigment to maintain ash blonde color.

This is Nostalgia, this is Tommy Girl, my FIRST real perfume ever! I remember both me and my sister got it for christmas when i was around 11 years. I still think it smells good!! but this is the first time i own a bottle of this, since i was a kid.IMG_0255

Love getting presents in the mail, even if i ordered them myself 😉

How to treat your skin now

Our skin and hair needs different products for the different seasons. If your moisturizer don’t “work” anymore and you feel that your skin is dryer then usual, even if you used cream on a regular base, this is the reason: climatic change. Only way to treat this is to give after mother nature and invest in a cream that fit your climate.

When the air is getting colder, our skin gets dryer and our face feels stiff after a shower -or after cleansing with a cleanser for oily skin. In autumn i have to peel my skin much more often then in the spring and summer. But if i have one area where the skin is extra dry, i tend to peel that area not the whole face, like now i have a dry spot at one cheek.

I do the same with my body, i must scrub it more often when the weather gets colder,  after i use body butter or body oil. Normally its not problem if i forget to use moisturizing products after the shower, but now i need it on a different level..

 

For my face i will use these products this season:

 

I use products that i like both consistence and scent, -thats why is use different brands. For optimal result talk with a dermatologist.

And body:

Dior lipliner

This lipliner is the perfect match for my lips, and i can wear it as it is, with lipgloss or as what it was actually made for, to contour the lips under a lipstick.

img-thing

Brand: Christian Dior. Name: Elite pink. Number: 663

 

This is a step by step guide for how i do my lips. Remember: if you have dry lips, remove the dead skin before adding anything! It is really ugly to se pieces of skin thru your lipstick. I use Fabulips from Bliss. You can use the scrub they have first, but sometimes you wanna use less time, so today i just used the lip cleanser.

 

lips3I used a lip balm  with a glossy effect, no lipstick -only the lipliner.

 

Wishlist

Here is a list of products i wanna get my hands on:

20131116-221247.jpg
During the winter cold its super important to use a richer daily moisturizer, but it is also really important to remove the dry dead skin, with this I can do my weekly peeling in just a few seconds!

Dry lips?

20130413-225237.jpg

If you have dry lips, it’s not only gonna be fixed by using a lip balm all the time.
For a quicker and better way to get pretty and nice lips again is to scrub the dead skin away, then add moist!
I use a kit from Bliss, they have a really good “lip kit”.

20130413-225704.jpg
It contains a lip cleanser, sugar scrub, a lip plumper and a lip balm. My lip balm is gone, it’s so amazing, I use it all the time for silky lips.

Some people may think its not so nice to use a scrub on dry lips, but it’s also moisturizing so don’t worry, it will not leave the lips dry and sore.

Bliss spa and products

20130221-232607.jpg
I am super exited to get my hands on more from the home spa brand Bliss 🙂
I already got the lip treatment, but I got it the day before my lip tattoo, so I must wait a bit to use it again.

Is also in many countries a spa chain, maybe it will arrive to Norway after a while too.
I heard they don’t serve fruits & water like in other spa’s, but chocolates & champagne. They don’t have “normal” spa music ether, It’s suppose to be a more fun and fresh spa. I love the idea. Just because you want a facial, don’t mean you need to sleep through it, now you can choose yourself, fun or relax 🙂

I want to try all of the products. I’m like a kid in a candy-store.

They resell all the biggest skin care brands in Norway, Bare minerals, Decléor, Matis, Carita, md and so on.

We had a meeting about me being a product tester. So I can’t test the product and write about my honest opinion here:)

I must say I’m super exited to try my first goody-bag!!
