Picture Diary / 19 - 28 April / ego














I was gonna save this post for tomorrow, but I got bored so here it is anyway. 

1. Selfie.

2. Selfie.

3. Me and baby sis just before last weekend's taekwondo competition, which she by the way won.

4. Selfie (lots of selfies today, sorry).

5. My love for those boots are very strong an unmotivated.

6. Pork surprise.

7. Le selfie.

8. I need to move that mirror because the lighting is just not ok.

9. Fell in love with this sweater at the new second hand shop. It's from Port Jefferson in NY, I might have actually been there, idk. We road tripped in that area when I was 14. It'd be cool if I have.

One new Parks and Rec episode a week is not enough. Just sayin'.

Ghost


This necklace, you guys, isn't it just dreamy? I found it at a newly opened second hand shop at my mall. 

Did some other shopping as well, and took some outfit photos before, so I'm gonna try and put together something for you later, but right now I'm not feeling so good, so it'll have to wait.

Blonde

Super sorry for not blogging, but shit is cray in school. We're doing our final project for this term, and ours is a 45min sort of performance show, We did five shows today and we're doing four more tomorrow, then we're done!

I'm blonde again, obviously. It's something weird about being blonde. I hate it sometimes, but there's also this weird feeling to it where I feel like me. I looked in the mirror today and I recogised myself properly for the first time in three years. Such a strange feeling.

Got my first pay from work today, so I did some celebratory internet shopping, among this another Unif garment! Can't wait until I get the stuff!

Hope there's some new good Body of Proof fanfiction tonight, 'cause I really feel like reading.

Oh my stars

Since I was mostly doing computer-based work at school today, I decided upon wearing a dress. Can't do that if I'm going to build stuff. Didn't manage to stay very clean anyway, though. Got glue, chalk and sawdust all over me anyway. 

Two new Parks and Rec and one Community episode tonight, bananas!

5. Awesome tee!

15 April 2013

Am I retarded or am I just overjoyed?



Got a new onesie from Missguided that I'm probably gonna live in from now on. Sorry I'm not sorry. 

Things are gonna be a bit cray with school, work and me going to Spain for the upcoming three weeks, so blogging might suck. Or not. But maybe, so I'm warning you. That is all.

I don't care if you don't

I'm having a great hair day, but you can't tell because all my cameras seem to be angry with me. I'm really feeling the purple, and I'm terrified to wash it now, because I don't know how fast it will fade. 

Went to the mall before and got myself a blow dryer, oreo cookies for tonight's continuation of my Parks and Rec marathon, and a yellow beanie. I really wanted to get a yellow dress, but I'm looking for warm yellow, and all I could find was neon. So I got the beanie instead (which is warm yellow, and was on sale!). Me always wanting to wear colours during the wrong season is really a reoccurring problem. Hard life.

Violet

Sorry for not blogging, guys! I wanted to, I just didn't have anything to write about, being busy with school, work, watching Parks and Recreation, and wishing for more Body of Proof episodes. 

I may or may not have dyed my hair purple. It's just that yellow tones in my hair gives me serious angst (not joking), and I had to do something drastic to get rid of them. The colour is kinda intense and dark right now, but it will probably fade pretty fast and be more lavender-grayish-blonde. The colour is Directions Violet. The lady at my local supplier of crazy hair dyes (Shock) were super sweet and helped me lots when picking out the shade! I've been shopping my Directions or Stargazer dyes there for over six years, and it feels like I know those who work there, even though I don't, because I'm not actually there often enough for them to remember me. Anyways, they're always great when I am, which is nice.

Also, sorry for the weird picture, I really don't have it going for me today.

Picture Diary / 7-10 April / Lilac














1. My "experimental-do-not-try-this-at-home-mix" for my hair.

2. My hair after my experiment.

3. The moment I noticed the 1500! Yayus!

4. Me on my way to school after work today. I wanted to show of my new sunglasses from BikBok and that I have kind of a lilac-pinkish-lavender dip dye now. It didn't go very well, as you can see. But at least you see the sunglasses. 

5. Matched two different shades of blue denim willingly for the first time in my life! And I liked it!

6. Remember I wrote about jelly sandals about two weeks ago? Well, a couple of days later I ordered these babies from River Island, and I got them today. Can't wait 'til I get to wear them! Need to get some cute socks, though! With roses!

Gonna watch a few more episodes of Parks and Rec now, before going to bed early. Work tomorrow. Also today there was a new Body of Proof! Not that it's probably of any importance to any of you, but I just had to put it out there, because I looked forward to it all day, so it felt weird not mentioning it. It was a good episode. I try to think of a way to describe Dana Delany as Megan Hunt, but there's just no words. She is beyond fabulous! And obviously so is Jeri Ryan, but everyone already knows I love her endlessly by now.

Dog days are over

Outfit credits: Nasty Gal dress, Monki coat, H&M scarf and sunglasses, Nelly.com studded loafers, vintage bag.

I ended up switching to a denim jacket before leaving, which was a bad idea. Should have stuck with the coat. I also redid my hairstyle, so this outfit picture is actually not very accurate, but nevermind.

Dying my tips lavender at this very moment. I hope at least. You never know if pastel shades are gonna stick or not. But at the very least I hope it with make my hair even more silvery.

Working tomorrow and Thursday, so I might not blog. Or maybe I will. I don't even know why I'm writing this because it will have no impact whatsoever on your lives.

And hey, I reached 1500 lookbook fans this morning! I remember when I joined the site, and I was proud that I even got that invite! I didn't know anyone on lookbook then, and this was when it was still an invite only site (three years ago), so I had to apply for one myself. It's about a year ago now that I started gaining a lot more fans, after posting this look. I love lookbook, and I'm gonna try to be more active this spring/summer than I have during the winter! Feeling very inspired by the sunny weather!

New in - Nasty Gal


All from Nasty Gal. The Litas are obviously not new though, but from there nevertheless. 

Some of my family on my mothers side visited some of their family (who are not related to me) in the US, so I took the opportunity to order some stuff from Nasty Gal to their address for my family to take home with them. That way I get both free shipping + stay clear form customs. I ordered this almost two months ago, and my package has been waiting for me in Oklahoma since then, but this Sunday I finally got my stuff. The eye bodycon dress, striped maxi dress and an ankh necklace. Love it all SO much!

A quarter for your jacket, pumpkin



Outfit credits: Cubus jacket, H&M dress and sunglasses, Gina Tricot sweater, vintage bag, Dr Martens boots, assorted jewellery.

I am SO pleased with the shade I have on my hair now. It's exactly the kind of blonde I want. I am so mentally damaged from my years as a bleach blonde that bleach-yellowish hair kinda gives me angst. My little experimental do-not-try-this-at-home-mix worked wonders, and now it's mostly silvery matte (and a tad bit of yellowish, obviously, because it's practically impossible to get rid of completely without going grey-haired).

I've watched all of Body of Proof there is so far, so I'm kinda at loss of what to do tonight. I was so sceptical when they switched some of the characters for season three (luckly not Jeri Ryan or Dana Delany), because I loved the cast so much (seriously, one of the best casts ever!), but it's actually even better now! I don't even know how it's possible. If there's an award for best casting it should go to Body of Proof, no doubt (and the casting-person should share some talent with whoever makes the music montages, because those are awkward). Episode 3x03 is my absolute favourite so far (the title of this post is a quote from that ep). 

I have even have strawberries and chocolate, but no show to watch. Sad life.

No light

Tell me, isn't the sun supposed to rise in the same place every day? Then why do I have different light in my living room every morning?

Got some new stuff from Nasty Gal yesterday (the Ankh eye necklace I'm wearing in this pic, for example), so I'm gonna do some kind of haul at some point. Probably not today though.

Gotta leave for the bus now, ttul!

Don't try this at home





Who needs a hairdresser when you have superior hair-dying skills? No, but seriously, I'm really close to the shade I want for my hair now. A experimental mix of silver shampoo, conditioner, pink and turquoise hair dye has eliminated most of the yellow (hence the "don't try this at home"), but I decided I wanted more of an ombre, so I bleached my tips a bit, and some of the yellow came back. I'm gonna put in one last round of the mix in a while, to see if I can get a little more out tonight. I want a silvery matte blonde, and I'm so close, I can't give up now, can I? Even if I end up with lavender high lights. This is probably as close to my natural colour as I am ever going to be able to dye. Congratulations to me and my magic hair.

H&M maxi dress and bikini, PLDM by Palladium boots.

It feels like it's been ages since I bought a full set + full price bikini. I'm not a beach person. I don't particularly like sunbathing nor swimming, so bikinis/bathing suits are things I rarely invest in. But this baby, it was love at first sight. And I figure the top can be used for layering as well. And with a couple of vouchers I ended up getting the dress basically for free when buying it, so it was a great deal. 

Also a somewhat better picture of the boots from my mum.

I never knew daylight could be so violent

My mum seems to have decided that it was time for me to get the birthday presents I never got when I turned 21 in September last year. I was supposed to get a trip somewhere, but the planned trip never happened, so I ended up never getting anything for my birthday. Until now, where I not only get to go to Spain next month, I also got these great boots from PLDM by Palladium. She originally ordered them for herself, but they were to small for her, so instead of sending them back she gave them to me, and I just love them!

It was sunny today, and almost warm. I even ended up walking around without my jacket. Maybe spring is finally coming here! Sorry if I probably jinxed it now, though. I tend to do that.

Got some new stuff at the mall today too, so I'll do a "new in"-post later (or tomorrow)!

So tropicana!

Outfit credits: Cubus jacket, Carlings knitted sweater, Hard Rock Cafe tee, ebay skirt, vintage bag, Dr Martens boots. 

I honestly do not know how I managed to put on this outfit this morning. I was so out of it when I woke up I just lay on the couch for half an hour, denying life. I was gonna wear leggings, but then I realised the leggings didn't match my bag, that was already packed, and this revelation then led to a couple of more minutes of denial on the couch. Eight minutes before my bus left I changed into a skirt, and managed to take two photos of the look, and it is still a riddle to as of how. 

I love this bag, it's got so much space in it that it feels like I'm out travelling when I use it. And I'm also super into tropical prints lately, and this has something that sort of looks like tropical leaves and flowers on it. (By the way, the post title is a reference to grav3yardgirl, the most awesome vlogger on youtube, you should check her out!)

And I just have to share with you that if you like MsDressy, you know the website that I get all my lovely princess dresses from, on facebook (http://www.facebook.com/MsDressy) you get a $10 coupon, and right now there's also free shipping! So if you're going to a prom this spring/summer, take the chance!
