Just a little update about the blog and general things I want to say!
I made an Ask.fm account last night because I was so bored!
If you have nothing to do, please ask me stuff~ :3
It’s connected to my Twitter so if you want to see the answer
you can see it on both Twitter (which is seen on the right) and Ask.fm!
I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I thought that I would tell you anyway!
I talked to Jason from PinkyParadise two months ago and I didn’t feel ready…but now I am a partner so if you are going to order lenses please consider them! If you order a pair don’t forget to write the code “NYANCY” at the checkout to get a free gift with every pair of lenses purchased! ^_^
I ordered two pairs yesterday and I’m really exited to get them. I’ll be reviewing them when they arrive!
My Glossybox is late… I’ll be getting the March box in April *sob*.
And I’m a little worried since I don’t get all my text because my phone don’t have a signal at home, I might miss my come-and-get-your-package-text! ;A; I really hope I get it tomorrow or so.
I don’t know if you want me to make a post about something other than… makeup, haha. But feel free to comment below if you have a request! >w< I might scan my doodles tonight! They aren’t that many though.
I thought I would swatch the things I bought from Cherry Culture and the first things I chose was Milani color statement lipsticks in Ruby Valentine and Sangria.
I saw (Vintage or Tacky) Cora’s review and I just had to try some shades… so I decided to buy a red and a purple one. There’s a lot of shades and if I had more money, I would’ve bought more of them!
I wanted to buy Rose Hip but it was sold out.
“Make a statement without saying a word! True Instant Color. One stroke,full coverage application. This next generation lipstick gives the ultimate in color, texture and finish. The lightweight creamy formula contains Vitamins A, C, & E to moisturize and nourish lips. Paraben-free.
Available in Vinyl, Metallic, Cream, Shimmer, Pearl & Matte finish.”
– Milani’s Color statement page
I think it’s really cool that they have different finishes. Here you can see all of them:
Vinyl finish! Like all my other lipsticks~ I like the shade of red but it isn’t anything special.
Matt finish! I’ve wanted to try a matt lipstick for a while so it was nice to discover that this one was matt (I didn’t know when I ordered them, I just chose the colors that looked nice). As you can see it’s not the same color as the actual lipstick when you wear it in sunlight but in the shadow, they are the same! ^^
I hope you’ve enjoyed the post! I really recommend you to try these if you love lipstick. They feel great and look opaque!
As I mentioned on Twitter yesterday I dyed my hair. I used Schwarzkopf Poly Color toner shampoo in Noble Chestnut. I’ve never used this one before but I thought that I would try it!I felt like the shade matched my old color but surprise, surprise, it got a lot darker than on the package. It says that it’ll last about 28 washes so I just have to wait for it to fade that way. The sun will help too haha.
Took this picture just before heading for the shower.
AfterA dark red-brown color. I like it but it wasn’t the color I wanted…
Good: I really like the formula! The color acts like a shampoo so it makes the hair stay where you put it (unlike other hair dye’s).
I bought it for under 50 SEK at the supermarket, which is cheap in Sweden.
Meh: If you plan to use it I would recommend to not don’t swirl your hair around too much because I did and the shampoo made my hair stick together pretty bad. The conditioner included in the package made it untangle though.
Next post: Milani color statement lipstick will be up in about an hour~
The Pokémon Company has just announced, via Twitter, that it will soon share news on Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. On Saturday, April 6th, the company says ‘big’ news will be revealed regarding the upcoming titles. So far, details on both games are scarce, but they are rumored to be bringing significant changes to the Pokémon video game series. Pokémon X and Pokémon Y launch worldwide in October… What do you think the ‘big’ news is? Will a new trailer be released? Let us know in the comments section below.
MOTD: Easter-edition! I went with being a grown-up påskkärring.
Påskkärring is Easter witch in english(?… that’s what google tells me anyway). Aaall the children dressed up like this when I grew up. I don’t know if they do it nowadays but from reading the news paper, I think they do! I haven’t seen any today though…
The Wednesday in Edinburgh was the day my teacher had planned the three hour guided tour. I didn’t take pictures until we stood in front of the church and that’s about 40 minutes in to it.
Talking about poet’s and haggis in front of a building resembling Rapunzel’s/Juliet’s tower!Mr. Andy, the tour guide, in front of the old way of detecting thieves. A step was shorter than the others and the thief wouldn’t know so the person would fall (which woke everybody up).Edinburgh castle!We had a break in the middle of the tour to drink and eat something in a cafe called Hula. Hot chocolate :3 The god damn coins drove me crazy though. We couldn’t tell them apart most of the time! The “real” Hogwarts (crappy picture, I know) :3Bobby… I love this dog! QwQ The statue is adorable too!The old red-light district. Andy talked about Burke and Hare here. Very interesting! This is where the tour ended. Since Andy doesn’t get that much money for the mount of time and effort he puts down on these tours, I think everyone gave him something as tip.
The building from the outside.Emma! Haha I love this picture :DPrinces street on the left and the bridge on the right.The last picture of my shoes before they probably burned… in hell.St. Arthur’s seat from the bridge.We walked around looking for souvenirs and while we walked on a small street, I found this little shop with fairies ect. I instantly thought of Robin. You should go in if you ever visit Edinburgh, Robin! ^_^
End of pictures from day 3.
Missed the posts for day one and two? Check them out here and here!
Finally, Easter break arrived! ;w; The report for the project is in and now I can relax a few days!
I bought two comics on “the Sci-fi book store”-sale today, one of them being:
Malignant man. A comic book about a cancer sick man that gets shot it the head and then get told that he has an alien in his head… it doesn’t get any better. From the creators of SAW and 28 days later + Ding.
Now that I have aaall the time in the world… I’ll sleep. Fo’ real. I have slept so, so little these past few days. And as you know, I don’t nap so I’ll wait until it’s late and then sleep all day tomorrow. (Maybe.)
But I’ll also upload the rest of the days from when I was in Edinburgh. And god, I have so much makeup I’ll swatch and show you guys. I have the things I bought in Scotland and the day after, I received my makeup from Cherry culture. The nailpolishes will be on the shelf a while longer though… my nails disappeared during the stress.
Do I have anything else to share(?)… I’m not sure >w<‘
AH. I remembered something funny, haha!
My dad came home with two razors yesterday and said “Here, I bought this one for you”… I was so confused. I do cut my hair myself but… what!!?
Turnes out he bough two because me and my brother could share one (so we don’t break his) and they were on sale :¨3
*Creepy saleswoman smile*
Oh well, now I’ll dedicate my evening to things I haven’t done in days… like reading and watch TV or something.
Our hostel breakfast∼ This is basically what we ate everyday for breakfast.Tuesday was the day we were at the University all day. Here we were waiting for a pre-meeting with the scottish students teacher. After that she invited us to her office in a different building and you’ll know why in two pictures!The elevators were occupied by rushing students so the teacher asked if we wanted to take the stairs and for some reason SOMEONE (not me of course) said yes… the department for Scandinavian studies are on the 13th floor, a.k.a highest up in the freakin’ building! We were so tired but because we (Emma, Linnea and I) walked at the front we didn’t stop. And what did we see? ^ That. A beautiful, foggy Edinburgh. The big mountain in the first picture is St. Arthur’s seat!On the other side of the building, from the window in the staircase. The lobby of the building where we listened to a lecture on Scottish culture from an awesome man (I sadly can’t recall his name) but he made everything a lot of fun.He gave us Irn Bru… and we gave him salt licorice (because it’s apparently rare outside of Sweden or something).Then we had a few hours till we had to have class with the scottish students, so we ate and walked around. The class we had was crazy. We moved all the chairs so two faced each other in a long trail. It looked like some kind of blind date scenario. The room was tiny for the amount of people in it, and it was so hot inside. And we did a lot of different group exercises. Some were pointless but a few were pretty funny. Before we headed to the hostel that evening, we stopped by Tesco express and bought our dinner. Emma, Linnea and I bought the same thing haha.My shoes got totally destroyed from all the times I tripped over nothing on the uneven street. So I had to buy new shoes but I couldn’t that evening because everything was closed already. Around 22.00 that evening, the majority of the class met up with the Edinburgh students at the OZ bar. It was nice (- the creeps trying to hit on people). We headed back to the hostel with Alexandra and Camilla at around 12 and that was for the best because the others stayed three hours after that and they looked so tired the morning after. I was tired enough during the three hour guided tour haha!
Before adventure land!First picture in Scotland! ^_^ We had just stepped out of the airline bus~
On our way to the hostel.
We were so hungry so we ate at the closest pub we could find… fish and chips, mmmm~
Our teacher forced us to the National museum of Scotland and this is on our way. So many fascinating things… I really recommend going if you visit Edinburgh :3 On our way back. The view from the bridge is so pretty! Especially St. Arthur’s seat *which I’ve explored c: But you’ll see that on Day 4*.Giraffes made out of car parts… ÖAÖOur room! :D I slept on the bed to the right while Linnea slept highest up on the bunk bed and Emma on the lowest.First nommies bought, they were fun because of the dares written on them. Turns out, I can touch my nose with my tongue!
The view from our window.“I’ve finished packing up.”SNOWSTORM, on our way to Princes street! Cute/beautiful/amazing architecture everywhere!My Scotland friend c: (I’ll be back Superdrug✩)It stopped snowing…
…but then the snowstorm started again.So we ran in to Starbucks and drank hot chocolate~
Newly-designed Nintendo eShop cards were spotted on Amazon UK. Want to spend £15 in Nintendo’s online marketplace? Puchase the Toad card. Pick Luigi to get a £25 card. And, of course, the most expensive card – £50 – features Mario on it. The new cards, which aren’t available for purchase just yet, can be used on Wii, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DSi. Which design appeals to you most?
I hope you’ve been fine while I was gone! We didn’t have free Wifi on our hostel so being online all the time wasn’t an option.
I arrived in Gothenburg at around 19.00 yesterday and the past five days was great! The weather wasn’t on our side but we made the best out of it. I took pictures everyday so I’m going to upload pictures from day one today and then upload the other ones when I have the time! The report (for the project) must be handed in on Wednesday and I haven’t started writing it… so I’ll have no time to blog (but I probably will anyway if I find a hole to do it >w<‘), so expect very little activity during the upcoming four days.
I bought a lot of stuff while I was in Edinburgh. Most of my money was spent on food and necessities because I didn’t bring those in my bag but I was able to buy things I wanted anyway.
Makeup~ I forgot to take a picture of the nail polishes I bought but I’m going to swatch them so it’s fine :3 I’ll review some of these when I have the time!Bought in HMV with a 30% discount on the CD and 40% on the DVD… aaaahwsome! Bought this cloth bag in Primark c: I payed a fifth of what I would’ve payed in Sweden *mind blown*. I love it~I bought this t-shirt because of my twitter addiction (+ it’s so cute) and a tank top with a mickey mouse dollar-sign on it!
I almost forgot the games, a powder and the nail stones I bought~
This is almost everything ^_^ Besides this I brought back Skittles, an Edinburgh snow globe, a game to my brother, a pair of heart earrings to my mother and of course, Irn bru! :D
I packed last night and everything went fine~ My cabin bag weighs 5.05 KG which is just fine (10 is the limit and if I have to, I’ll just put on loads of clothes on the way back home). I bought a bag weigher yesterday so I wouldn’t be in doubt. >w<‘ Worth it… would be so nervous otherwise!
Except for the bag weigher I also bought a rain poncho and super-cheap temporary head phones (because I seriously need music on the flight… and just in general).
I should eat my yummy breakfast now~(Two toasted sandwiches, GOD MORGON orange juice with juicy bits *mmm* and a Peach / Passionfruit yoghurt drink.)
While reading the new Nemi comic! :D
I won’t blog on the trip *never say never though* but look out for the occasional tweet here and there *connection is the key haha*! ^_^
Miss Anon took all these pictures (thank you <3). But this post will be updated when Fern (the birthday girl) uploads pictures taken with her camera~ It went around the whole night so Anon didn’t take any at the party (except for one on the huge panda cake).
We also made a Harlem shake video… I didn’t understand the point with Harlem Shake (because it’s so random and not that entertaining) but, turns out: it’s so much fun recording one!
I’ll post it when it’s up too >w<‘ *don’t hate me haha*
