Silly & Serious in Sweden

Silly & Serious in Sweden

Why a blog?

Why not? I know I like reading about other people's ideas and thoughts - whether silly or serious - and also video blogs - aka VLOGS - on YouTube and such. I'm not going to do anything super fabulous here - merely keep a diary of sorts, show you my favorite links, what makes me laugh or what makes me know - the usual stuff. I hope you will enjoy! AND I hope you feel like jumping in an commenting on occasion!

Lauren, Kandee, Michelle and Risa...

I'm becoming more and more addicted to makeup. Not only to the eyeshadows, mascaras, etc., but also the people who are really GOOD at it and have the kindness of posting brilliant, funny, and cute videos on YouTube for us makeup-guru-wannabes... smiley

The first one I stumbled upon, at least two years ago, I think, was Lauren Luke. She is a young girl (27, if I'm not mistaken) who goes by the handle "panacea81" on YouTube, Twitter etc. She started out at her house, posting videos on how you apply makeup to look like your favorite celebrity. (Leona Lewis, Britney Spears, Lady GaGa etc.)

She's now having a terrific career because of this. She has her own makeup line "By Lauren Luke", sold online and in the Sefora stores, and has just published a book about her way of doing makeup.

Here are a few links in case you're interested in this lovely person!
