LEFT TO RIGHT ON THE LAST PICTURE:
Dior – Elizabeth Arden – Glossier – Lipstick Queen – Yves Saint Laurent

I always got a lot of questions on the products I use on my lips on a daily basis.
And yes, pink is defiantly my color when it comes to my lips, I can’t leave my apartment without a pink shade in my bag.
I don’t know why I’ve become so obsessed with pink lipsticks and glosses, but I just think that it adds such a nice definition, glow and color to your whole face. I doesn’t matter if its winter or summer, but a little color on your face never hurt.
Of course I’m always trying out new textures, colors and shades, but these 5 beauties are the ones I’ve been stuck on for the last few months. I’ll have them laying around in my apartment and in different bags.
Trust me, you don’t wanna meet a panicked Mia if I left my home without a lipstick with me.

LEFT TO RIGHT ON PRODUCTS PICTURE: 

Yves Saint Laurent
The most perfect peachy pink, looks perfect with a little tan and feels so good on the lips.
I’ve always thought that the designs on the Yves Saint Laurents lipstick is the most beautiful ever.
So this one doesn’t look bad in your party bag. I love this color, it’s vibrant and not too rich!
Volupté Tint-In-Balm, YSL

Glossier
A newer addition to my pink family. This one looks more red-ish than it is – and yes, it does have a more deep red undetone.
I use this one for when my lips needs some extra nourishment, but at the same time wanna look kissable.
The color and texture gives you the most luminous pout, that just looks like it has been kissed.
This one is key to the no-makeup-makeup-look.
Balm dotcom Cherry, Glossier

Lipstick Queen
Yeah, this is a yellow lipstick. I know weird, right? But it doesn’t actually come off as a yellow shade.
This lipstick is a ph lipstick – or a mood lipstick as it’s also called.
The color will change depending on the ph number in your body, with makes it kinda like a personalized lipstick.
It will give you the most beautiful pink pout, with a little yellow undertone that reminds me of sunset.
It’s perfect for the summertime or when you’re having a tan.
Morning Sunshine, Lipstick Queen

Elizabeth Arden
This is hands down a perfect combo, for the ideal pink lipstick.
It’s creamy like nourishing lip balm, but gives you a sheer pink shade.
It smells like peppermint and makes your lips feel so soft and kissable. You can’t get anything but happy with this color.
Not too pink, not too sheer, not too nothing. It’s just super super good.
Gelato Plush Up Lipstick Candy Girl, Elizabeth Arden

Dior
Wanna have a little bit more action and definition? I’ve talked about these lipsticks before and I still love them.
This color is more of a rosy, dusty pink – which I really like when I wanna make my look all about the pout.
I always get compliments when wearing this one. It just makes your lips looks so ridiculous full and beautiful.
It’s one of my favorite colors from their range, so go find yours!
Lazy Laquer Stick, Dior

Bye Bye Muffin Top!

thumbnail_fatSponsored content by Aglaia Klinikken

So this is very much out of my comfort zone, to talk about and to show you.
But, do you know that annoying stobborn muffin top that never really wanna go away,
no matter how much you work out or eat your greens? Well, I have that. Right here on my belly.
It’s very frustrating – but yet, very normal. So I don’t freak out about it, I just deal.
But the good news is that you can actually do something about it.
And no, this is not being lazy, this is just about helping all the stubborn parts of your body that needs a little ekstra push!

So I decided to try out the very popular treatment called Cool Tech.
This treatment is about freezing your fat until it dies. Brutal? Yes, it sounds like it. But it actually isn’t.
It’s kind of like squeezing a pimple while yelling “diiiiiie”
Dying fat, doesn’t that just sounds like the best thing ever? I do.

As always I made this treatment in cooperation with Aglaia Klinikken
My always go to, when getting anything done.
They know what they’re doing, they do it well and I’m always super happy with the results.

Because it’s very complicated understanding the procedure if I write it down, I made a video together with my favorite cosmetic nurse, Line from Aglaia Klinikken. So instead of explaining everything, you can watch this video.
You’ll hear about what’s happening in the procedure, see me doing the treatment and talk about the final results 12 weeks later.

WATCH THE VIDEO & BEFORE/AFTER PICS HERE

This treatment can be done, not only on your belly, but also on your thighs, chin, arms ect.
So if you have any problem with stubborn fat, I would highly suggest this painless procedure.
It’s quick, simple and easy.

The procedure takes 70 minutes, only a little discomfort the first 8 minutes and then you just lay there chill and read magazines.
Your tummy will be swollen right after and for a few days have this numb feeling – but after, the fun starts ..
The final result can be seen after 12 weeks. Which makes this treatment perfect for winter, so you can get bikini ready!

I really see a huge difference as you can see on the video – so I would definitely recommend this treatment.

For 25% off the treatment, write IAMMIAMAI in the message box when booking.

Don’t hesitate if you have any questions regarding this, I’m more than happy to help you in the right direction.

MY 3 FAVORITE COFFEE PLACES IN LA

I’ve always been a coffee girl. I need one every day, every morning and just to keep my eyes open during the day, haha.
So ofc, it’s important for me to find good coffee while I’m here in LA.
If I’m on the run, I’m actually not a Starbucks kind of girl. I mean, if it’s there, I’ll drink it.
But I always prefer to order my coffee from Coffee bean & Tea Leaf, which is another popular chain.
You can find it everywhere, the same with Starbucks. So if it’s on my daily route, I’ll grab one.
I always order a double shop cappuccino and a passion fruit ice tea, with one pump stevia sweetener. It’s my go-to.
But, we all know that there’s nothing better than catching up with a friend, drinking coffee and just talking for hours.
And when I need a place to enjoy my coffee, I’ve 3 favorite places to go.

Alfred Coffee

alfred alfred2

You can’t avoid this hip place to drink your coffee. It’s so instagram friendly with all the decor and different colored walls.
It’s so in and the coffee is to die for. Here you can get anything that your coffee – or tea heart desire.
Are u a mocha girl, or more into herbal teas, koffein free coffees or whatever – they have it here.

Carrera Cafe

carrera1 carrera2

Okay, be prepared for the most instagram friendly coffees.
Not only do they make super good coffees and pastries – but they’re also picture perfect.
Hold on, you can choose a stamp on your coffee from a chart they carry.
This means that you can get Ryan Goslings beautiful face on your cafe latte. I mean, how freakin’ cool?!
They have different stamps of your choosing, everything from Kim Kardashians cry face, to the Hollywood sign.
That’s so cool. You’ll defiantly meet a lot of bloggers clicking their pictures of the cool coffees and jut on the other side of the street is the popular pink Paul Smith wall, where you can take cool photos.

Urth Caffé

urth-caffe
Another hip place that has different locations. My favorite location is on Melrose Ave.
It’s the ideal place to have breakfast or lunch – or just to grab your favorite cup of coffee.
But be aware, this place will most likely be packed everyday you’ll try and visit. But don’t worry, they’ll always find you a table even though it can take 5-10 minutes – be patient. Not only is this a good celebrity spotting place (all the A-listers pick up there coffees and matches from here), but they have amazing foods too.
All their food is good, homemade and filled with greens. Again, they have different kinds of coffees, teas and smoothies.
If you’re having a little sweet tooth, try their spanish coffee. It’s so good.

Hope you could use my favorite coffee spots to when you visit the city!

WEDNESDAY VIDEO: A Day in LA

Hi guys,

I’m so absence – and there’s a lot of reasons to that. Some that I’ll keep private a little longer and others that I’ll probably share with you in the upcoming weeks. But either way, I still enjoy posting great content for you and I’ll keep doing so.
This video that I made is a little different from the rest of my videos.
It’s probably what you’ll call a vlog – because it’s a few glimpses and clips from my everyday life here in LA.
This is me trying to let you in on some more personal stuff, than just my beauty tutorials and so on.
I will agree, that when my mom saw this video she was like ‘It looks like all you do is party and go to lunch’ .. haha, and I will agree with here. This was a weekend, which means I wasn’t really doing much work – just enjoying my friend visiting!

I hope you like it – and remember, I’m new in the whole vlogging, so it will get better!
Enjoy loves,
x M

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Okay, I always used to say that nothing beats the perfect black winged eye.
But look at this bomb white liner! That’s so cool.
I love the contrast of the almost neon white to my tanned skin. It makes my eyes look a little bit surreal.
First I wasn’t sure weather or not it looked like eyelash glue on my lids – but now I’m such a fan!
I think it’s important to experiment with different colors around the eyes, and yeah I guess this I a quite bold look ..
But as long as you dig it – just rock it!

WHAT I AM WEARING

The most perfect creamy highlighter that I’m obsessed with right now, is the
Bright Idea Illuminating Stick from NYX.
It blends in so well with my skin and leaves the gorgeous glow – so natural and lovely.

For my lips is one of my favorite lip products from my all-time favorite brand, Dior.
Its the Dior Addict Laquer Stick in the color Lazy. 
As you maybe have seen from my previous video HERE, I love all their new shades.

The star of the show for this look, is the cool white eyeliner.
White Liquid Liner from NYX.
It’s super easy to use, shapes the edges really nice – and it last for sooo long!
I wen’t out on town with this bad girl on, and she stayed put all night.

Soon it’s Halloween time – so as promised, a Halloween video will be up on my channel real soon!

I hope you liked it,

img_1648img_1647– sponsored – 

Hi guys,

A lot of you asked me after I did my first impression on the Glossier products, about these two darlings.
So I decided that I wanted to take a few shots with me wearing these gorgeous colors.
For the lips I actually wore both colors, starting with the Cloud Paint in the color Haze, and then finished with
the Cherry Balm Dotcom – which really smells and tastes like cherries!

I really like these two products, they make both my lips and cheeks feel fresh, rosy and kissable!
The cherry balm has already become my favorite go-to lip product that I always bring with me in my bag.

You should really try out some of there products – they’re not only cute. They’re hella good.
If you didn’t see the video where I’m testing and trying out all the products for the first time, you can find it HERE

VIDEO│First Impression & Review on Glossier

TRYING GLOSSIER FOR THE FIRST TIME

Hi guys,
A little surprise video for you – I know it’s not Wednesday, but I just couldn’t wait to show you this one.
I’ve really wanted to try these products for so long – and I was definitely not disappointed.
Because you can’t get this brand at home in Denmark, I was super excited about ordering now when I’m in LA.
You can see in the video that this is my first impression on everything from the packaging,
the scents, the texture, feels, looks and everything else.
I must say they really didn’t disappoint – just made me even more excited to start using them on a daily basis.

I’ll keep you updated on what I think about the products.
.. and then you’ll probably see one or two favorites sneaking into some of my blogposts in the future.
Who knows?

My Wednesday Video will still be up this week, don’t worry!
