13091697_10153643229535829_876635890_oLet me introduce myself! My name is Inger Kristin, but I go mostly by the nickname of IK, which I have done for many years. My full name is used in more professional settings, so please, call me IK. Let’s keep it casual, right?

I am soon to be a 22 year old, and I swear Taylor Swift’s “22” will my soundtrack from that moment on, and I’m defiantly not ashamed about it! Proud T Swift fan right here! My favorite Swift album is without a doubt 1989, and I’m positive every album Taylor makes will be better than the previous ones. Dream bestie right there.

My heart goes all warm and fuzzy when I think about how lucky I am to have found my love, my boyfriend of 5 years, Henrik, a beautiful person to share my life with. We have just recently moved in together, which was a long awaited and exciting new chapter in our relationship.

Since I was young I knew I wanted to work with hair an makeup, so at the age of 14 I made a 5year plan to be a professional hairdresser and makeup artist. Last summer, I was finished with my one year makeup course, and had accomplished what I planned all along; to be both a hairdresser and a makeup artist. However, after a while I realized I actually wanted something else, I just didn’t know what. After much back and forth, I made the decision to go back to school, which will be happening this fall, and become a student again. I came to the realization that I am not the same girl I was when I was 14, therefore I don’t have the same interest and aspirations in life as her either.

I am constantly trying the better myself, to be a better person, live a better lifestyle and to be a calm and happier person. I am currently on a journey towards a exclusively vegan lifestyle, which I sometimes find quite difficult, especially in certain situations. In my opinion veganism is the best possible option, for our own health, the wellbeing of the animals, and the earth itself. Our one and only planet cannot bear the amount of animal products twe consume and demand today. And I say one and only, because it’s not like we have any other planets to flee to if we trash this one. I am also in the process of switching all my beauty, bath and home care products to greener, healthier and less chemical filled products.
