Oh happy day!

Today has been insanely slow and it was especially slow at work.
Wasn't really anything to do and I was literally sitting on my ass for 65% of the time.
I hate days like that.
One of the reasons the time passed by so slowly is probably because I got a letter in the mail from Yves Rocher saying that my package has arrived.
So I was excited when I went to pick up my box of goodies.

I got the duo eyeshadows (to the right) as a free gift, but I bought the other one.
Gorgeous brown shades.
I've been looking for eyeshadows in smaller containers, because I'm so sick of the clunky packaging from Too Faced Naked Eye.
It's a huge box and takes up a lot of space in my makeupcase.
I do love the colours, though.

The last few things I got from Yves Rocher:

Makeup remover, black nailpolish, mascara and those things that separates your toes so it's easier to paint them ^_^

I was so happy with it all and so glad that I could throw away some of my old eyeshadows.
They say you can have one eyeshadow for up to 3 years, but the ones I had was a bit crap and the packaging was horrible.
As you know, I'm a sucker for pretty packaging.
(Explains my ex gf)

I'm off to bed to catch some sleep.
Can't wait for the weekend :)

I got nailed at work!

It doesn't matter how many times I see this, it still makes me want to puke.

I found 10 fake nails on the floor at the junior disco while I was cleaning today.
They were spread all over the floor.
So nasty!
I mean, if you wear that crap and want to take them off, do it in the bathroom and throw them nails in the trash.

The guy I work with was apparently a bit put off by it as well.
Can't blame him, though.
Guys are pigs, but girls can be just as gross sometimes too.

Anyways, I'be been sitting in this bloody chair over 3 hours now.
Was suppose to clean the kitchen, but when I turn on the computer and start farming and checking my city on facebook, the hours kind of fly by.
Guess I have to get off my ass an start doing something productive.
Have a good wednesday everyone :)

Wacky monday!

After over a week with constant pains in my left shoulder, I woke up this morning and it felt so much better.
But I thought that it doesn't matter, because in a few hours I'm back at work and the pain will come back.
But apparently my boss made a call to one of the other subs and made him help me out until Kirsten is back at work with me on the 19th of april.
It will be a couple of interesting weeks, because he barely speaks Norwegian and my Arabic is a bit rusty.
So glad he speaks enough English so we can have a proper conversation.

Even though I had help at work, I was still exhausted when I got back home so I had to take a 4 hour nap.
Now I'm sitting here at 9.30 pm and I feel slightly odd.
And Anna is sending me weird looks on top of everything else.
I don't look THAT horrible, okay?
I'm sporting my sexy, and maybe a few sizes too big, nevermind the bollocks here's the sex pistols tshirt.
I don't like the fact that its bright yellow, but it was too badass to pass on it.
I think I bought it at the Rock N Roll store in London.
I went a bit crazy with tshirts at that store and I am so going back the next time I'm there.

I'm off to make something to eat and I'm gonna watch a few episodes of 'Nana' before I try to get a few more hours of sleep.
And yes... This is my 7th time going through the 'Nana' series.
Don't judge me!

Back to school?

I read on a blog today that the makeupbrand 'Face Stockholm' has opened up a makeupschool in Oslo.
Now, if you know me or even have read some of my blog posts or seen any of my vlogs on youtube, you know that I'm slightly obsessed with makeup.
I have recently been thinking about taking the obsession and using it to go back to school and try to become a makeup artist.
But I have three problems...
First of all, I have to move to oslo.
Second, I don't really know where I stand with certain things at the moment.
And second and most importantly: It costs a shitload of money.
I'm looking at 16 000 kroner, which is around 2880 dollars.
I just bought a new laptop, so I don't have that kind of money these days.
It's so depressing.

Maybe if I work hard and save up enough money, I'll be able to go back to school, but not right now.
Besides, I have to move to the big city to get there and even though I think Oslo is a nice city to visit, I don't want to live there.
Oh well.. Who knows what I might end up doing in the future?
I can still dream :)

So I am, by the looks of it, snowed in.
Not only did I wake up at 5:30 am, but when I looked out the window this is what caught my eye.
It's been snowing for days and we've had quite a few snowstorms this week.
I am sick of all the snow and I'm so ready for summer.
Then I can wear my converse, dresses, heels and sandals.
And yes, I'm aware that I said dresses.
I've rediscovered my love for dresses and I'm so excited for this summer.

I didn't post a blog yesterday because I was busy cleaning my grandparents apartment, followed by some groceryshopping and then I kind of got stuck in front of the tv playing Tomb Raider Legend on xbox.
All in all it was a good day.

Also, if you're wondering, I did get my new laptop working and I love it.
So lightweight and so cute.
It's weird having a PC that doesn't use 5 minutes loading a page.

Here's what I'm having for breakfast.

Very random, I know!
Anyways, I better be off blowdrying my hair.
Still sitting here with a towel on my head.
Not an very attractive look for me.
Happy saturday people :)

Spring is here!

I wish!
Just randomly looked outside while doing my dishes and the sight was a bit shocking:
A tiny snowstorm.
I know I'm speaking for everyone here in North Norway when I say: Fuck you winter!!!
I'm not a huge fan of summer, but i mean come on, there's gotta be a middleroad between a snowstorm and a heatwave.
All I want is for the snow and ice to disappear.
I want to wear my converse again.
We're in the end of march so this weather is insane.

I'm one of those people that gets VERY affected by the weather.
If the weather is shitty, I will be in either a bad mood or I'll be a bit depressed.
It's odd how it works, but I guess a lot of people suffer from winter depression.
I don't have that problem, but I can totally understand it.


I think I have to vacuumclean.
I have like catsand all over the floor, which is rather disgusting.
Have a good thursday evening.

Are you serious?

Before I start ranting about the only thing that pissed me off today, I must say that it's been a pretty good day and that's actually rare since shopping and other fun stuff like that wasn't involved.
I did oversleep this morning, but I came to work on time.

But here's the thing that just made me completely lose it before 7 am:
In the girls lockerroom some bitch decided to put foundation (which was probably way too dark for her skintone anyways) all around the bloody mirror.
Who had to scrub that shit off?
If it hadn't been for me being in a good mood, I would of broken that mirror.

I mean, honestly, they do that knowingly that it will piss someone else off.
Kids these days are mental.

It's not that it was that hard to remove, but it's completely unnecessary and timeconsuming.

But all in all, I've had a good day.
Watched some old school Diggnation on youtube, played farmville and catched up on gossip and emails.
I'm off to bed hoping my new laptop will arrive tomorrow.
By the looks of it, it's 99% certain that it will.

Goonight everyone xx

I'm excited!

Weeeell maybe not!
I was sitting at work waiting for the pain in my shoulder to pass so I could continue working.

I am starting to wonder what was going through my head at the time.
Probably something like '' Bitch I'm gonna get real cranky if I ain't gettin mah KFC today!'' or most likely ''I wanna be in bed with a huge bottle of cola and some snacks with a romantic movie rolling on the tvscreen.''

I have been feeling under the weather lately and I think that's the reason why I havent made any vlogs.
I have made a few these past few weeks, but I haven't really been feeling it.
Guess it's normal to be a bit out of it sometimes.

Waiting like crazy for my new computer, so editing and skyping and all that jazz will hopefully be a joy from around friday.
That's when the computer is said to be delivered.
*happy dance*

But I'm off to make some dinner now.
Have a good tuesday afternoon people :)

I heart you!

Look at what I found at work today:
Probably wasnt meant for anyone special, but I just thought it was very cute :)

Speaking of work:
I had to force myself to get up this morning.
My left shoulder has been all tense since saturday morning.
Hurts so bad and having a cleaningjob doesn't really help the situation.
I told my boss that my shoulder is acting up and I could tell that she got pissed, but that's only because we're VERY low on staff these days and they need people in order to make everything go around.
I guess I just have to take it easy at work these next couple of days.

I'm waiting for two packages this week.
One contains my new computer and the other one is... Uhm... Makeup... Duh!
Not even going to try to make an excuse for that.

But I better turn off what's left of my barely working Acer and make myself some food.
Happy monday people :)

I've given up!

So I've ordered a new laptop now.
Sick and tired of not having one that works properly.
Found a good deal on an Acer emachine.
Hopefully this one will last until I can afford to buy a macbook.
The pricetag on this acer is 3000 kroners and the cheapest macbook is 8500 kroners.
So there's a big difference.

I will start saving for one, but right now I just need a computer that works for blogging, skyping, editing and msn :)
Not to mention gaming on facebook.
I think my farm is falling apart as I'm typing this.
Haven't really been able to play today and I tend get rather loopy if I don't have my daily farmville fix.
I'm an oddball, I know.

I have a few things to do before bedtime so I better jet.
Hope you're excited about the week coming up.

Good saturday!

I woke up around 10 am this morning and I'm weird in the way that I can't stay in bed if I'm awake, so I got up and put on the coffee.
A quick shower and I was already having breakfast and catching up on news and facebook/twitter/emails.
Then I got to my favorite part of my day:
I had a HUGE shopping problem last year and I had so much makeup that I didn't have room for it all.
So proud of myself for embracing it and taking control over it.
Being a shopaholic is bad!
Especially if it puts you in a position where you can't even afford food.
Been there done that.

But now I'm getting way ahead of myself.
Finally got a hold of a proper makeup mirror.
I used to use a tiny pocket thing and it was literally driving me crazy.

Wearing a red Dior lipstick today.
I ran out of tissues so I used a piece of paper instead.

I hope you guys are having an awesome saturday <3

Healthy lunch?

So I have decided to eat more healthy.
Yeah I know, I've said it a million times before, but I am really dedicated this time.
I've had periods where I eat very healthy and I feel so much better.
I'm in a better mood, have more energy and I work out more.
I have been kind of lazy with the workout part lately, but I try to keep up.


When I came home from work today it was around lunchtime and I didnt really feel like making dinner, so I ended up with this instead:
 It kind of looks like sperm.
I'm serious!

After it was finished, I was so hungry I forgot to take a picture, but to make it taste better, I took a spoon of strawberryjam on top of it.

It's friday night now and what do you think I'm going to do?

Go to bead early!
I would fail at being a badass rockstar xD
And I know I say that sleep is overrated when I'm unemployed, but when I work and get up at 5 am every morning, I wouldn't imagine myself saying such rubbish.

Have a good friday night wherever you are <3

Music Flashback

I went through my CD collection the other day and I found an album I used to listen to all the time when I was 14-15 years old.

The Darkness! <3
Oh the memories.
It's a shame that they split up after only two albums,  but the music lives on.

The second album, which was called ''One way ticket to hell.. And back'', wasn't as successful as their first cd, but it was still packed with awesome tracks.

Just had to look up on wikipedia when they split up and it says they split in 2006.
Can't remember it was that long ago.
But nevermind that :)

I better go take a bath before I fall asleep.
Its not even 3 pm, so it's way to early to head to bed now.

Tea for me

I've spent my whole sunday in my good chair drinking my favorite india chai tea and thinking about my future.
Sounds dumb, but I have so much on my plate and so many decisions to make in a short period of time.
Sometimes, I think so much that I get a headache that usually lasts for days, so I try to avoid that.
But it feels good to sit down and just think.
Thankfully, I dont have a headache today, so that means that I didnt go crazy with all of my thoughts.

I'm sitting here writing a shoppinglist for tomorrow.
I'm kind of short on cash this month, because I had 7 bills I had to pay, and now I gotta keep an eye on my visa card and what I buy.
I'm on a budget now and all I can buy is food, which sucks because I really feel like shopping.

I'm recharging my batteries for tomorrow.
Instead of working 4 1/2 hours everyday, I'm not working fulltime on mondays and then like 3 1/2 hours the rest of the week.
Since it's vacationtime there's no one using the gym tomorrow, so that means that I have a shitload of work to do.
Better bring my ipod.

I smell VERY busy days ahead, but I'm gonna try to take a chillpill in between all the work.
Have an awesome week!

Viva La Diva Review

I've wanted to try a lot of products from this brand since I first saw that they sell it in town.
Viva La Diva is a swedish makeup brand and they keep their products at a low price range.
Here in Norway, VLD is sold at Cubus.
I bought one mascara, a lipstick, a single eyeshadow and an eyeshadow pallett:

#2 Golden Eyes.

Domed Eyeshadow #370 Sand Beige.

Lipstick in #55 Nude Pink.
Comes off a bit strong in the picture, but its really lovely.

And lastly, the black mascara.
I absolutely adore the packaging on the lipstick and the mascara.
The eyeshadows look a bit cheap, though.

- Low price range
- The colour payoff isgreat
- Lot of product for the price
- Viva La Diva does not test on animals

- Cheap packaging
- Limited colour selections

Hope this helps guys!

Hospital Crap

So I'm sitting here waiting for mum to get sent home from the hospital.
Not gonna say what she's there for, but she had to go through a surgery this afternoon and she's now recovering.
Just talked to her on the phone and she sounded a bit under the weather, so it looks like she might spend the night there, even though that wasn't the plan.
I would have stayed at the hospital with her, but I have work early in the morning, so I just told her to call and wake me up if she gets back home tonight.
It seems like the surgery went well and that's good, but I know all about the long recovery process that comes along with any operation.

I really don't think I'll be able to stay up much longer waiting for her.
Looking at the time and its just 5 pm.
My sleeping pattern is messed up and I haven't even done anything to mess it up.

I think I'm gonna make myself some dinner and then watch Nana online.

Keep your fingers crossed for mum <3

Random makeup look

I was playing around with some makeup, purely out of boredom.
I'm not a makeup artist and not even close to being good enough to consider having that as a profession.
But I must admit I was pleased with what I came up with.

I used BarryM's dazzledust in number 88, which is a gorgeous dark purple coloured eyeshadow with loads of shimmer and Maybellines gel eyeliner on the eyes.

Was thinking about making a tutorial, but I wouldn't feel comfortable having a camera 5 cm away from my face.
So I guess I can put up blogs posts like this every once in a while.

I really to clean my skin, so I think I'm gonna head to the bathroom and put on a sexy green facial mask and take a bath.

Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for the upcoming week.

Can't stop this hunger

Not THAT kind of hunger, you perv! xD
I'm always eating these days.
I started my day off eating something slightly unhealthy:
After like three bowls of this, I started to feel a bit sick.
No wonder because that's some crazy icecream shit.
So yummy, though! <3
Oddly enough I was still hungry, but I had to take at least a few hours off from eating.
I could feel that I was gaining weight and even though I'm comfortable with myself, I really don't wanna gain more weight.

I sat down with my Nintendo DS and played my new game for a little while before I decided to fix me a little snack.
Here's what I came up with:
More healthy than icecream, though.
I do try to eat more healthy and replace chocolate and such with tomatoes, carrots and fruits.
Not always easy when you have a sweet tooth ^_^

I'm off to mum's tonight for dinner and hopefully she'll have some vegetables with whatever it is she have decided to make for dinner.
I've always loved vegetables and potatoes as a kid and I know how weird that sounds.
The typical stereotype kid hates that ''healthy shit'', but guess I was a bit odd in that sense.

But I think I have to do a few things around here before I head off..
Have an awesome saturday everyone <3

Another one?

Oh yes!
I got my new cellphone in the mail today.
I've been looking at this for a few months now, and I really like the idea of an eco friendly phone.
Also, I've been missing Sony Ericsson.
The phone I bought is an Elm and for some strange reason it looks better in real life.
Looked rather ugly on the net, but when I opened the box it was stylish and sleek.

I decided to go for this because I was reminded of how much I loved SE when I had the K700.
That was an amazing phone and still to this date on of my all time favorite cellphones.
And I've had about 29 phones in like 8 years (or something like that).
But that's off topic!

I've been out of the loop for about a week and a half now and I think it's time that I update my blog.
Since my new phone has a 5 MP camera, I'll be able to take more pictures.
I had a digitalcamera, but it broke months ago, so I haven't been able to take many pictures.
I didn't know that the phone had a flash, so my first picture was of Anna and I don't think she was prepared for the light right in her face.
Look how cute she is.
She does look a bit evil everytime I take a flash photo of her, though.
I guess being black doesn't really help.
Wait...Did I just make a black joke?
Or more like a racist comment?
That was not intended.

I'm getting way too sidetracked today.
Guess I can blame the fact that I feel like shit.
Gotta love being a girl once a month.
Can you smell the sarcasm?


Don't you wish you had my wallpaper?
I know you're jealous! xD
Don't deny it.
This wallpaper covers my bathroom walls and sometimes, when I'm taking a bath, I look at it and think that the fucktard who designed my bathroom must have been slightly retarded.
Or maybe even drunk off his ass.

Oh wait...
Grandad did that xD
That does explain a lot, though.
But now I'm getting sidetracked again.

Have an awesome weekend everyone and make the most of it.
Assuming you have the weekend off, that is :)
