Gorgeous day

I took some pictures after work today and I just wanted to share them with you.

The weather was really gloomy and sad when I got up this morning, but when I left work it was sunny and quite warm.
I can't complain at all, since it wasnt too hot for me to handle.
I hate it when I'm stuck at work in +25 C.
Total nightmare, so I'm glad the heat came around when I was wrapping everything up.

But looking at the time...
Its almost 9.30 pm and I really should head to bed.
I'm slightly obsessed these days with episodes of Ugly Betty..
Such a good show and I miss it so much :(

Anyways, I'm off to bed..
Nighty night :)

I iz hiding

It's been a very long and not to mention quiet weekend.
I honestly don't know why I'm wiped out, so that's why I'm covering half my face.

I'm also wearing my reading/computer glasses so I hate getting the reflection of the screen on my glasses.
But whatever!

Apparently, my mum wants to take some pics of me and my cat Anna.
She says she just wants some new pictures of me, but to be honest, I think she just wants some pictures to show the cops when my bf kidnaps me to the US.
Weird theory, but even though she's trying to adjust to it all, I do believe she thinks that something will go wrong once I get there.
She might be right and she might be wrong.
I choose not to fill my head with more crap and focus on other things.

Like wrapping up this post so I can hit the ladiesroom before I pee myself.
Have a lovely sunday evening :)

Crazy week

It totally looks like I pissed myself, but I swear I haven't.
Anyways, I'm at work literally counting the minutes before I can leave for the weekend.
This has been one of the most hectic weeks this year and I am in need of a long and good night's sleep.
But not before I've catched up on a few episodes of the big bang theory and gone through some pages of the book I'm reading.
So I guess I'm looking at around midnight before I finally hit the sack.
Glad I dont have to worry about the alarmclock going off at 5 am tomorrow.

But I better finish up and close the gym for the weekend.
Have a good one, guys :)

Cleaning in progress!

There's something about spring and summer that makes me want to change things around my house.
I go crazy with cleaning and redecoration.
So yesterday I decided to take down a shelf and put it under the other I had so I could make like a big bookshelf.
Turned out great too.
As I was cleaning out the mess, I found a photoalbum (which is empty) and I noticed that it's been a while since the last time I had a cleaning fit.
I better get a grip when it comes to keeping it clean around here.
Always been my weakspot because I'm so insanely lazy.

Inbetween everything else, I did find something I got as a birthday present a few years back.
An asian style umbrella.
So gorgeous!

I also went though my books and DVD's.
I have so much crap and my book collection keeps growing.
Notice the two cult films in the middle.
The Crow and The Breakfast Club.

Felt good to get organized, though.
Even if it made me a little bit dizzy and gave me the headache from hell.

It's getting rather late now and I better get my butt in bed before I end up sitting up to 1 am.
I always end up with 2-3 hours of sleep on sunday nights before the weekend kind of messes my sleeping schedule up.
Have a good week people :)

Crazy day

It's been a loooooong and busy day.
I suddenly decided to rececorate my place and I've been cleaning non stop for about 4 hours.
Wanted to finish up beforeI went to bed, but that's not gonna happen.
I have a horrible headache, so I think I'm going to head to bed and finish everything tomorrow.

Just wanted to post a quick blog before I did.
Hope you guys are having a good saturday night.

Fix it!!

So I've been driving myself crazy over the washing machine at work.
It literally exploded almost 3 weeks ago and the entire laundryroom was covered with water.

This is the machine in its current state.
Momma ain't happy cleaning the mops by hand.
And oh yeah, the machine is 25 years old.
Bloody hell!
Hopefully it will get fixed this week.
If not, I'm going to throw a bitch fit.

But when I'm pissed at the machine, I sit down in the breakroom and read a little to calm down.
I am reading ''One Day'' by David Nicholls.
Apparently its turned into a film that premiers this fall in Norway.
When I finish the book and if I really love it, I wont see the movie.
I'm kind of weird like that.
If I love a book, then I don't want to see the movie based on it.
Harry Potter is an exception, though.
Another example is the movie ''Confessions of a shopaholic''.
Adore the movie, but I don't want to read the books the movie is based on.
It's quite odd, really.

But who knows, I might get too curious not to watch the movie.
As I'm writing this it's getting close to my bedtime and I barely sleep anymore, so I need all the sleep I can get.
Thanks to my boyfriend for showing me how to use that bloody piratebay site.
I'm up all night watching tv shows and I can't seem to shut my laptop off.

I'm off to bed and I hope you guys have an awesome night.

Summer bliss

It was fairly chilly this morning when I was on my way to work, but around 10 am the summerheat literally kicked me in the head.
I'm just glad there wasn't a lot to do today, because I don't know how I could stress and rush at work in this heat.
The day flew by quickly and when I was leaving to catch the bus to town, I just felt like trying my new camera.

This was taken right outside the gym.
These pretty ones was covering the entire hill next to the parking lot.

Yeah I'm not this fat.
I was carrying two bags filled with books.
I'm such a nerd, I know.

Even though my feet aches after walking and running around all day, I still think it was a good day back from 5 days of being at home and literally doing nothing.
Now I feel like taking a bath and read a little.

Have a good one guys :)

Cuteness of the month

I just adore this little dog.
Want one so bad, but I think one black bitch in this house is more than enough.
(Talking about my cat Anna by the way)
Even if I did get this dog, I don't have room for him where I live now.
Maybe one day I'll get a place bigger :)

JPMetz is Awesome!

I am so in love with the youtuber JPMetz.
Her sarcasm and fulltime frown on her face is absolutely priceless.
She does daily vlogs and rants on her two channels and I am excited for every video.

One of her newest collabs with her friend Nicky aka soundlyawake is one of the funniest I've seen in a long time.

So brilliant that I've seen it at least 20 times and it still makes me laugh.
Check it out!

Urban Decay Vegan Palette

I picked up my package from Beautybay yesterday.
I only bought two things but I will place another other soon.
Here's some pictures of what I got:

The palette comes with 6 shadows, one 24/7 glide-on eye pencil and a mini eyeshadow primer in sin.

I am so in love with these colours.

From the left: Minx, Urb, Gunmetal, Twice Baked, Smog and Half Baked.
(Notice the little burned spot under the Urb swatch)
And then a swatch of the black eyeliner.
Photos was taken with a flash and I did not use a primer underneath the swatches.

I also got the Dr.Hauschka foundation that I have heard so much about, but I don't think I'll be keeping this.
I've put it up as a swap on makeupalley and I will mention it in a future YT video if someone is interested.

But all in all:

I'm happy with the most important thing, which was the palette, and I will definitely order from Beautybay again.
Decent prices, good customer service and the shipping took about a week and a half.

I revieved my order from beautybay today.
The package is still at the post office because I couldnt pay the customs fee today.
I will pick it up on monday morning, but I just wanted to share with you the two things I bought.

Urban Decay's vegan palette

Dr. Hauschka foundation

I absolutely love Urban Decay and especially since they've been cruelty free since day one.
I wanted to try this foundation because I heard that it is good for oily and acne problem skin.
Hopefully it will work for me.

It's almost my bedtime now and it's been a long day.
I'm off for tonight.
