What I got for my birthday 2014

So someone over here happened to have a birthday and just happened to get some lovely gifts from her family and loved ones. I am by no means bragging or showing off. I just simply want to share with you guys what I got and show my family some appreciation.
 A cook-book about chocolate, a NYX Trio, a bracelet and a pair of earrings.
 A cookiestand with a glasslid filled with the tiniest little chocolate muffins.
 An owl cookie stencil. I think that's what they are called. Anyway you fill it up with cookie dough and it comes out owl shaped. Mega cute!
 And from a special nerdy someone I got a new motherboard, RAM and a new CPU.
 Way to nice of a gift but I really needed some new components for my gaming rig! Not beautyrelated either but my blog my rules!

Thank you so much for the lovely gifts! I loved every one of them!

Heat failure

I think everyone now and again does things they normally wouldn't. Things they know won't really work or shouldn't be done. But we simply have to try. Take me for example. I very well know that not all plastics like heat. But did I think twice before I tried straight brushing my hair with a blow drier set to maximum heat? No. Did the hairbrush like it? Not even the slightest. Lucky enough it's just one of those knock-offs of the Tangle Teezer because I don't see the point of spending way too much money on a hairbrush. No matter how wonderful it is.

This cost me a fraction of the original and I didn't get too upset when I ruined it. Just very annoyed with myself. I replaced it within the hour and now I enjoy a new fresh life changing hairbrush!
I suffer from very flexible hair. When I brush out a very stubborn knot, with an ordinary hairbrush, my hair will automatically self-retract into a new knot. Almost like the self-retracting dog leashes. But not with this, It's a dream to use. I was very skeptical how that would work it's way through my long hair but it works amazingly well. Dry or wet.

No hair was harmed during the incident. The brush melted and the blow drier got a bit overheated and refused to start again for a while.

All in all, great brush for the hair, not that great for heat.

Nivea Sensitive Night Cream

I've tried this now for a couple of weeks and thought it time to share my experience with you all. I must confess I haven't used it every night. And there is a reason for that. I don't really like it that much. But I have used it enough to see the results or more the lack thereof.

It says on the box that it moisturizes and reduces redness, tightness and dryness. I haven't noticed any of the three at all.
And can someone please explain to me why products gets so heavy on the greasy side when they are meant for sensitive and dry skin? I don't want the grease, I just want moisture put back into my skin! 
This has a lovely consistency but it just feels to heavy on my skin and takes absolutely forever to sink in! And it doesn't feel like it's doing anything. Either this is for dried out toads or I just don't get it. And I can't stand the scent. It has that typical none-fragranced scent. I'm very disappointed in this one. Normally I sing Niveas praise in every thinkable tune. But this one is a pass for me.

October Favorites

End of October already? How did that happen??
Here's what I've been liking and using throughout the month of October. Enjoy!

My new snazzy makeup bag! It's by Gillian Jones, whoever that is. All I know is it was half price and it says Denmark under the name.
Speaking of half price, found this gem last time I went into a Kicks store. Refreshing and cooling with a metal rollerball.
 This needs no explanation. I've raved enough about this already.
 A re-discovery for me. But now I find it too heavy and thick so I mix in some of the Express Hydration Primer and it works like a dream. I get a very even and natural finish.
And the hero of them all is this Expert Face Brush from Real Techniques! Every girl should have this in her makeup-brush-arsenal!

What have you guys been liking this month?
