What’s in my carry-on

So, tomorrow I’m heading off to New York – and I’m super excited! It will be my third time there, and as the times before I’m going to the New York tattoo show “No Limits 2017”.  So I thought I’d show you what I pack in my carry-on – which this time is a small cabin-sized suitcase and one small backback for things I want close to me during the flight.

We’re flying from Trondheim to Oslo, which takes about 55 minutes, and then from Oslo to New York, a flight that lasts around 7 hours.

In my carry-on suitcase: 


1.TRAVEL PILLOW – I always bring this during long flights, it makes so much easier to sleep through most of the trip.

2.CAMERA – I bring this small SONY camera for selfies and the times and don’t want to drag my CANON with me. I’m also bringing the CANON camera for the convention.


3.POUCH – Here I store my Pills, Bandages, Makeup Remover, Tampons and Selfielight. I like to be prepared in case of headaches, a cold or anything like that.


4.MAKEUP BAG – I always bring my palettes and pressed powders in my carry-on, after experiencing several broken eye shadows when packed in my suitcase. I try to bring as little palettes as possible – but I’m a makeup addict and can’t control myself. The big Morphe palette I put together myself, with my favorite shadows from Morphe and Makeupgeek.


5.CHARGERS – My camera chargers and the charger for my computer


6.LIQUIDS – Hand cream, Perfume (Loverdose by Diesel), deodorant, nose spray and toothpaste. I always pack a toothbrush in my carry-on as well, but I pack it the same day as I leave.

In my backpack:


In my backpack I have the necessities for a long flight – stuff to do during the flight, headphones, phone charger etc.


Warm socks, sleeping mask, sunglasses, water bottle, gum, headphones and a phone charger.


Sudoku, a journal, pencil case, phone, a book (Liane Moriarty – Three Wishes), my wallet and a deck of cards.

That’s everything in my carry-on – if you would like to se what I pack in my suitcase or what of my makeup I pack – let me know in the comments 🙂

New York – No Limits

The reason for our New York trip was The New York Tattoo Show – No Limits 2016. It was an amazing convention and we met so many awesome people and talented tattoo artists.


A few pictures from the pre-party on thursday 🙂


The after-party on Saturday. I missed the one on friday – since I was in our hotelroom all day sick. But saturday was really fun.


Our last day at the convention and some hair braiding 😀


And… Mina won 2nd place Best of the Day Black & Grey on saturday!! ❤

New York – Day 1

Hi everyone ❤


I got home from New York a few weeks ago and I’ve been lying sick in bed until monday. I finally feel better, and got to go back to work again – and it feels so good. I took so many pictures when we were there and I’m really excited to show them to you 😀 Here are some pictures from our first day there.


We started our first day with breakfast at a supercozy diner, called Andrew’s coffee shop – right by Penn Station. And then we walked our way up to Madame Tussauds 😀


We spent a few hours there, took a ton of pictures and had a lot of laughs ❤


And then we had a lovely dinner at Hard Rock Cafè 😀

My Travel Z-Palette

Hi ❤

In 6 days I’m going to New York, so yesterday I started packing my suitcase and organizing the makeup I thought I’d bring with me. So I re-organized my Z-palette, so I don’t have to bring so many palettes with me! 🙂


I have the Z-palette Large in Lavender, I ordered it from Makeup Geek. I’ve filled it with shadows from Makeup Geek and Anastasia Beverly Hills.
