Just Girls Breaking Hearts

Last weekend I went to The 1975 concert at Rockefeller in Oslo with one of my best friends, Ellen.

We spent an hour standing in line in the pouring rain before the doors opened. We got soaked, but it was totally worth it!

The underground boy band, Pool, did an incredible job as the opening act of show. It was my first time listening to them, and I must say I really enjoyed it. After the warm-up, the 1975 came on stage and everyone freaked out completely. The 1975 totally delivered! I’ve been to several concerts and I can easily say that this concert was one of the greatest ones I’ve ever been to. There was so much energy from the whole band and Matty Healy knows just how to pump the crowd, which I really fancied. Apart from that, the music was incredible and the show was amazing. The highlight of the show was definitely their hit songs “Girls” & “Chocolate”. Ellen and I literally danced and sang along to the songs like there was no tomorrow. I never knew I had this fangirl inside of me. I’m usually the “oh, cool jam. I like that shit”, but at the concert my hands were literally stretching towards the band like a maniac. It was fun. The 1975 are one band you definitely should watch live.

Pharrell Williams came to Norway and charmed his ways into our hearts. The Foxes were his warm-ups and the lead singer had the sweetest outfit on stage. We attended a shopping evening with Day by Malene Birger, and visited Ingensteds during the Light Festival.

Mr.Fish sushi restaurant newest maki, the Volcano! The fish is fresh with a lot of taste, and I recommend everyone to take a visit. Starbucks is always a win, and Mr. Bay always makes our tummies happy.

 

Questions & Answers

What is it like living in Norway?

Living in Norway is wonderful! The atmosphere here is nice, everyone are very friendly and welcoming. We have beautiful architecture, outstanding landscapes and nature. The disadvantage of living in Norway is that there’s not much to do. If I compare Norway to America, I can easily say that Norway is just a little freckle next to a gigantic mole. Everything here is smaller, such as shopping malls, amusement parks, and the nightlife here is… no comments. All in all, Norway, or Oslo, is a beautiful small city.

The weather here in Norway is also really moody. I’m a summer girl at heart, but the moody weather causes me to layer up lots of clothing. It’s pretty annoying because my ideal outfits are mostly suited for warmer climates.

How come your English is so good?

Our American accent has always been there from the start. We really love the language itself, and have been paying lots of attention when watching movies, interviews, vlogs and listening to music etc. We have been doing this since we were little, so it has certainly affected our accent throughout the years.

Do you have a fitness routine?

Nope, I don’t. I’ve recently cancelled my membership at a fitness center, so I no longer work out or do any particular fitness routine. I can now go back to my favorite daily routine – netflixin’ & eating ❤

Hi gorg! I also got an ombré but mine seems to get darker as time goes by. How often do you bleach your hair to keep it blonde? XO

Hello! To be completely honest, I never re-bleach my hair after a hair-session to keep it blonde. I just let it grow out naturally until I feel it is time for a new hair-session, and that is usually after 7 months.

Are you currently in university or college? What do you want to become?

I just graduated from upper secondary school and I’m currently having a gap year to figure out what I want to continue working on in the future. I still find it hard to decide on which profession is the right one for me, but hopefully I’ll find it out sooner or later. My future plans are diverse, but my interests are mainly on fashion, media, animation, photography etc. It’s a never-ending list, but it’s most probably something I’ll decide to work on in the future.

Where do you get your fashion inspiration? Who is your role model?

I find inspiration everywhere – my mood, people I see on the street, the Internet, Instagram etc… There is no one source that I get everything from.

The three main YouTubers that I check daily for a fashion boost are Jenn Im from clothesencounters, Prettysickly from idressmyselff and Claire Marshall.

Is there any chance to meet you? 🙂 Your outfits are so inspirational.

Thank you! I live in Norway, so it’s pretty far away from Germany, but who knows? Maybe I’ll meet my followers one day 🙂

What is your ethnicity and how tall are you?

I am Vietnamese. I believe my height is 5”2. I’m about 2 inches taller than Alexandra.

Can you do a casual ootd for instance for going to the store or school?

I was planning on making a “Going Back to School Outfits” video, but I never got into doing it, since there was no one to record me.. Bummer. But I’ll definitely make an outfit video or make an outfit for some special occasion on the blog in the future!

Could you make a makeup video of your makeup routine/tutorial?

I don’t know. I’m not readyyyyyyy. I’m sho shawryyyy. *awkwardly hiding in my turtle shell*

What are your life aspiration?

My aspiration in life would be… to be happy 🙂

Hi! I’m from Holland and I follow both of you on Instagram. You guys are seriously so pretty! And not only from the outside, you guys are really friendly and although I don’t know you at all, it seems like you both really have a good heart. I love your pictures and you guys really inspire me. Anyway, on to the question, I was wondering what kind of lashes do you guys use? They look so natural, I love them! I hope you both will have a great day! Much love, @daantjenguyen

Hi, @daantjenguyen! Thank you for your kind words, we use the lashes called “M.O.D.E.L 21 Eyelashes” made in Vietnam. The lashes that we use are no. 8 & no. 4D. I prefer no. 4D. The lashes gives you a natural look. While Alex on the other hand, likes no. 8 because she prefers longer and thicker lashes. We bought it in Vietnam at a random market that I don’t remember the name of, but what I do remember, is that you can find it at any Asian market.

What foundation do you use?

I use bareMinerals Original Foundation in medium tan. It is the best product that I’ve purchased on, and I recommend it to every girl out there who prefers powder over liquid foundation. The reason why I use foundation powder over liquid is because my skin gets allergic reactions from it. bareMinerals has the best powders that provides a flawless coverage and doesn’t irritates my skin.

Hello Tsutsumi! Firstly, I just want to say that you and your sister are really inspiring and you guys seems to have a great personality which shows in the pictures you posts! But to the question, I’m graduating this summer and in a few weeks I have my prom as well. I was thinking of dying my hair to the color you had when you was at the Vixen Blog-award. But do you have any more pictures of your hair that I can show to the hairdresser? It would be really great if you can send me a few pics 🙂 Thank you in advance for your answers. Best regards, Alissa Anongdeth

Hello Alissa Anongdeth! Thank you so much, love. I don’t really have a perfect picture of the hair color, but below are some pictures from the Vixen event. I hope your hair color turns out the way you wanted it and I wish you a wonderful prom celebration!

DET NYE ♥ Budget Friendly Fashion

I didn’t expect anything extraordinary to happen besides work today. But, to my surprise – a Norwegian magazine, Det Nye, announced on Instagram that their newest edition was out in stores! They contacted us earlier about a budget guide that they were doing and wanted to tips their readers about our blog. So I went to the store at 9 am with no makeup, still in my pajamas, searched for Åshild’s beautiful cover and went home oh-so-happy. How cool is it that one of Norway’s biggest magazines told their readers who they should follow for the best budget friendly guides and we happen to be one of nine bloggers that got a shout-out?!

Our style isn’t super original and complete different from every else. We wear whatever we think is pretty and feel comfortable in. Tsutsumi likes to experiment and she often varies between several different styles, while I like to keep it either feminine and classy, or just sweet and simple. Either way, I think the best thing about fashion is that nothing is stopping you from expressing who you are. You have the freedom to try out different styles and looks, and it’s totally up to you how you want to present yourself. We’re inspired by the latest trends, Instagram bloggers, fashion blogs and affordable clothing chain stores. We have always thought of fashion as something that should be budget friendly, and believe that if you are looking at the right places you’ll end up with many treasures.

I never really pay attention to magazines cause I rather read it online, but regardless of us being in it our not I would definitely buy this one. Their budget guide consist of many hidden treasures, a lot of fashion inspirations, an exclusive interview with the typical girl next door, Åshild, real-life stories about girls from New York who sleeps around with old men to pay for their student loan, food recipes and much more than just the typical girly magazine. It was so relaxing to just lay down and read whatever this magazine had in store for me this morning.. ♥

Sneakpeek on the next blog post: IMG_6642.JPGI really need to iron my sheets before shooting next time.
