Day 5 in Iceland, bad weather with super strong wind. We drove to Egilsstadir, we didn't plan much for that day as we were following the plan from Guide to Iceland-12 day self drive tour. During the driving, we saw a lot of amazing landscapes and a lot of waterfalls. We also went to the town called Seydisfjordur, situated just next to Egilsstadir, we had lunch over there, did some sightseeing around the beautiful light blue church and a little bit of shopping (A light pink sheep hair cushion). When we drove back, we took some photos with some waterfalls. And we did shop in Egilsstadir a bit for the dinner and I got a mint green cardigan.
After the poisonous mushrooms night, we were totally fine, no vomiting, no stomach pain or dizziness. So we had a simple breakfast to start our day!
We stopped for looking at the waves and feel the super strong wind!
Can you imagine how strong the wind is?
And we saw this, just wondering are they a real dinosaurs bones? Probably not, because they should be really rare and valuable to just let them out for decoration.
We stopped again! Waterfall!
Selfie with the long river just next to the waterfall.
We saw so many sheep while on the road, you need to pay attention when you drive to avoid hitting them accidentally .
They usually are in groups of 3 to 5. This group had 2 brown sheep!
Except waterfalls and sheep, we also saw 2 or 3 times rainbows!
After a long drive, the car was so dirty and we had to clean it!
We went to the supermarket in Egilsstadir, and I saw so many different kinds and colors wood lines! I got some to make a scarf during the trip in the car! But I still didn't finish because I stopped when we went back to Switzerland. I will start again as today is the first snow of the year here and the weather is getting colder and colder!
We were going to Seydisfjordur, it is just next to Egilsstadir after we checked-in. And we stopped just for some photos!
As you can see from the photo, the town we were going to is the one you can distinguish next to the sea!
A big tourist boat. What a surprise to see one of those in such a little town!
Lunch time in this store called Dalbotni.
A hotdog, chicken cheese mushroom burger with french fries and a coke.
Total cost: ISK 1980 ~EURO 14 ~HKD 117 ~USD 15
After lunch, we went to see this light blue church in Seydisfjordur.
Along the road in front of the church, there is a shop called GULLABUID which sells some home decorations and souvenirs. It is different from the usual souvenir stores which are selling similar things. I really love the shop style and I wish I will have my own shop one day!
I really like these vases and the flowers! But I did't buy it because it may break during the travel and it is hard to carry this back to Switzerland as our luggages were already quite full! Instead of this, I got a light pink sheep hair cushion, just for a great memory item!

After visiting Seydisfjordur, we drove back to Egilsstadir. We discovered this beautiful waterfall!
Our tradition kiss photo!

We drove a bit and saw this waterfall!
Super long waterfall!
Should be the name of the waterfall.
We drove a bit again, and waterfall again!=D
We wanted to take some close photos with the sheep as there are everywhere in Iceland but they were afraid of us!
Guesthouse Sara (Faxatrod 3, 700 Egilsstadir)
One night: ISK 12,231 ~EURO 86.8 ~HKD 722 ~USD 93.2
Included living room, kitchen, shower and toilet, parking, noisy heater system and a really bad wifi signal. As we really needed wifi to book the next hotel and plan our schedule. I also needed it to upload photos on my Instagram and videos on my snapchat! It was really bothering me! XD What I really need is the wifi!!!
We went to supermarket to get some food for dinner, we wanted to save money but it was not much cheaper than eating in a restaurant. And we did shop a bit around in Egilsstadir and I got a mint green cardigan! **( I filmed a Iceland Haul video, it will be published after the Iceland vlogs! )**
Total cost: ISK 5880 ~EURO 41.7 ~HKD 347 ~USD 44.8

Diorific Mat- 770 FANTASTIQUE
Velvet colour lipstick
I said no more makeup until next year when I go back to Hong Kong, I lied! Here it is, I got this limited edition lipstick yesterday when we went out to buy my husband's father birthday gift. I just wanted to get something to cheer myself a bit. As I know Christmas is coming soon, there are many limited edition makeup items from different brands. It is hard to control myself not to buy any because they are limited for Christmas 2015. And I saw this lipstick yesterday, honestly I'm attracted by the packaging of this lipstick, I think the shape is a bit strange but I love the gold. I was comparing this with the YSL one (*below pic), and I prefer this color!
I think Dior will describe it better than me, so I screenshot it for you!
I tried it on, I really feel the formula is different than MAC/Tomford matte lipsticks, this one is more moisturizing, no need to apply any lip balm first. But I don't really feel the velvet texture, for the long-wearing, it hard to say because I chose this deep colour. After using some tissue to remove it, there was still some colour left on my lip, like other lipstick brands. For the price, because I got it in Switzerland, it was really pricy, it costs CHF53. But in France, it costs EURO 39.5. I would like to get one more in a different colour, but I won't unless I can get it in France.
