AM to PM routine TAG

Hi! I thought I´d do a fun TAG as I am drowning in school work lately and I can´t seem to find the time for blogging right now.
I don´t remember where I found this tag, but let me know if you´re doing it too!

Finals are coming up and I just have a couple of weeks left, eeek!
Who else are studying? Let me know :)

AM

- What is your morning beauty routine?

I used to have the longest beauty routine both in the morning and evening.
Now I have the shortest. I seriously only clean my face with the Garnier Micellar Oil Cleansing Water. I also do shower and brush my teeth, but that´s a given, right?
And I ALWAYS moisturize!

- What´s for breakfast?

The toughest question of the whole day.
Not much, really. Usually just coffee. As black as it gets.
I usually don´t have lunch either.. but that´s not very healthy, so I´m not saying that.
I might add that I get up really early in the morning (4:30am), food is simply not on my mind.

However, on the weekends we usually make EGGS and BACON and we really enjoy life and the fact not having to get up early in the morning <3

- Coffee or tea?

I´m a coffee loving person. And I´d like that coffee black.
I do love the seasonal drinks at Starbucks (favorites are Pumpkin Spice Latte and Toffee Nut Latte for Christmas)
There´s nothing like a good cuppa tea though, so I do drink this quite frequently too.
English Breakfast with sugar and milk.

- How long does it take you to get out the door?

Depends where I´m going!
I usually need about an hour, I do manage to get done in 30 minutes if I need to, but I don´t handle stress really well - so I like to have my time!
No matter how long/short time I have, I´m rarely late (especially not if it´s something important) so I manage my time quite well.

- What is your go-to makeup look on a fuss-free morning?

I´ve gone a little more "natural" lately, meaning: very little eyeshadow and no liner (at all).
My go-to makeup look is a little dab of foundation to even out my skin-tone, some bright concealer for my under eyes and down the bridge of my nose, setting powder and some contour down my cheekbones and nose.
And brow gel.
That´s pretty much it!

PM

- What is your evening beauty routine?

I remove my makeup (every last bit of it) and clean my face with the Garnier Micellar Oil Cleansing Water. 
Sometimes I use a toner or a night cream if I feel dry.

- Snack time! What´s in the bowl?

Salty crisps! I´ll take a bag of chips any day, I simply can´t get enough.

- How do you wind down and prepare for bed?

The hubs and I are usually zombied out on the sofa watching TV until we go upstairs and crawl into bed. Nothing special here I´m afraid..

- Cozy up! What are you wearing to sleep?

Now that winter´s coming I am constantly freezing and I usually wear fluffy socks and a cute PJ type tights and a long sleeved top for bed (reminds me I need to buy a new PJ as I am currently wearing my boyfriends t-shirts and ugly sweatpants..)

- What are some things you must do before hitting the hay?

Probably set the alarm? And kiss my hubs good night :)

#BLOGtober 1st - Fall 2016 challenge

BLOGTOBER

We´ve been blessed with the most amazing autumn weather this past month and I just feel so happy and motivated!
I´m buried in studies and I haven´t been able to enjoy it too much but I still love this time of the year.

I started the weekend off by cleaning the house and prepared for a family birthday party on Sunday.
On Saturday we went to a climbing activity park with different trails and zip lines.
That was SO much fun! I love spending time with my boys and it was such a perfect activity for the all three of us. We will definitely be going back there.

I plan on doing #BLOGtober this year, please let me know if you´re doing it too! I´d love to follow you :)

City/theme-park weekend with my family. *Gothenburg, Sweden*

Gothenburg, Sweden

Hubby, junior and I went on a little weekend-getaway this weekend, and it was amazing.
It felt so good to get away from home, even just for a little bit.
We don´t have any special vacation plans this summer as we´re focusing on other things this year (refurnishing etc.).

We went to Gothenburg in Sweden, it´s not too far away but the perfect destination for a weekend trip as we were bringing junior with us. "Liseberg" is a huge themepark and paradise for kids (and for certain grown-ups as well).

We left on Friday morning, the drive took us about 4 hours +/- and we started off relaxing at our hotel room before heading out for dinner. We stayed at Scandic Europa and the hotel was pretty central which was nice as we didn´t need a taxi for whenever we were heading out anywhere.

We didn´t get the memo of "Midsummers Eve" this weekend, which is something that the Swedes celebrate. All shops and restaurants were closed - to our dissapointment.
I had been looking forward to eat Italian, but the only restaurants that were open were the big chains, like Pizza Hut, Mc Donalds and so on. We went to Pizza Hut and don´t get me wrong, our pizza was DELICIOUS and it´s perfect for kids too😊

After a delicious dinner we headed back to our hotel, we sat down and relaxed a little bit before junior managed to get us into the hotel pool😅 It was a lot of fun though, and a nice end to our day.

On Saturday we had a great breakfast (I love hotel breakfasts💕) and we walked about 20-25 minutes to the theme park Liseberg. The sun was shining so it was a nice walk and start of the day.
We had a lot of fun aaall day, went on rollercoasters and ate at least 3 ice creams I think😳
My feet were hurting so bad at the end of the day, and they still do!

Mariestads Beer

On our way back we went through a park and sat down to cool down with a beer (and soda of course). I can´t describe how lovely this was. It was so warm, the sun was shining and we sat in the middle of this beautiful park at such a cute restaurant. It didn´t feel like we were only 4 hours away from home..😅

We wanted to have steak for dinner tonight and went back to freshen up and headed straight back out for some food right around the corner!

Later that night we sat down in our hotel and watched a Euros match⚽️

We went back home on Sunday after checking out and enjoyed a nice breakfast and some coffee. There were some terrible weather on the way home and I´m glad we were so lucky all weekend! Not a single drop of rain. 

We arrived home in the afternoon, and nothing felt better than the couch that night😊


I wish I had more photos though, I brought my camera with me all the time and took a lot of photos, but few of them came out alright and I also did a lot of filming as I want to edit a short video of our trip for personal memories. I guess I ended up focusing more on that than actual photos.. It always ends up like that with me!😅

What are your vacation plans this summer?

Coffee talk

Good morning! 😊

I´m close to finishing this semester and I´ve finally found some time to blog again.
Today I´m going to visit my sister and 2 year old nephew, we´re going to a summer party at his preschool.

I´m torn wether to continue my Blogger blog, or to stay at this Squarespace platform. It´s so much easier at this platform!
The only difference will probably be the URL (I can´t decide on that one either), the content will be the same. I´ll also move my bloglovin followers to the one I´ll be sticking to (when I´ve made up my mind). I´m just such a indecisive person. 😅
I kinda feel the Blogger community is pretty much dead anyway, so what am I really missing by changing platforms..? The only "drawback" I can see is losing my "activity" from karlaloveslipstick on bloglovin if I change to this url, but there´s not much to lose there anyway.
I guess it comes down to choosing my url. I never really found that ONE name. Misskarla is simple, neutral, easy to remember - and it´s me. But it´s nothing special. 🤔

Oh well, I need to get on with my day. 😎

I was hoping to post a few posts before I leave. I´m thinking ootd, motd and perhaps a "what`s in my bag" post? I mean, I am actually doing something outside of the house today! 😉

ARE YOU DOING ANYTHING FUN THIS WEEK?

*BLOGtober 1st* Hello October 💛🎃🍃🍂🍁

October is finally here and I am late with my BLOGtober challenge as usual 🙈

hello october

What are your favorite thing about Fall?

Weekend getaway with my hubby <3

My amazing boyfriend decided that we should go on a trip this weekend! We didn´t have any specific plans and just made them up as we went..=D

It´s not that we went places we´ve never been before or did something absolutely amazing, but it was the whole deal of just going away and do something else than we normally do during the weekends.

Old church

We went to a very nice cemetery and saw this old and beautiful church

Norwegian Holmenkollen

"Holmenkollen" The Olympic Ski Jump

Norwegian Frognerseteren

We had our dinner up here, at "Frognerseteren", that was amazing. that view over Oslo and the cute little cabins with grass roofs and ahh.. Love this scenery!

The Norwegian Queens Park

The Queens Park behind the Royal Palace.. So peaceful =)

mojito

We ended our night going out and having some drinks! Had a lot of fun with my baby <3

 

What did you do this weekend? =)

Slippers or Hunters?

That was yesterdays big question! There has been a terrible weather here lately and I was wondering whether I had to wear my Hunters for school, or if I can take my new sandals!

I really wanted to wear my new sandals, so I was hoping for sun!

image.jpg

I was delighted when I peeked out of the window finding out there was no rain =) Even though there was some dark clouds in the sky I took the chance! I would be sitting inside all day at school anyway =)

Terrible weather!

On my way home on the other hand..... Gosh, couldn't even see the road at some point.. Thankfully it didn't´last for very long and I got home safe..=)

Check my newest OOTD where I have my new sandals on!

I hate bad weather! I just hope we+re gonna have a nice Fall... I´m really looking forward to that now <3
