メリークリスマス!Merry Christmas!

I'm starting to come down from the high that is called Christmas.

Lovely holiday.

From Christmas Eve

The outfit

Dress: H&M
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
Necklace: D&G

The purple colour on the shoes turns out WAY more blue when I take pictures with flash.. Annoying that my hair doesn't do the same :P

 Dinner table :3
The food mum made was wonderful as it is every year. I'm gonna miss her cooking next year when I celebrate Christmas in Tokyo! Hopefully I'll be able to find some form of replacement for it :)


Christmas treeeee~!

I got some nice presents as well! I don't have any pictures though, I already packed everything down! :O
I got:

♥ A camera, from mum:
It hasn't arrived yet, we ordered it on the 22. hehe. Can't wait! It's all fancy, and in a VERY nice colour I might say. I've had the same camera since 2007, and as you can see, the picture quality now isn't so much to brag about anymore. :P Maybe I'll give my old camera to my cousins, maybe they will think it's fun to play around with!

♥ A book, from my lovely Anne, together with some much needed hair products: 
The book isn't an ordinary notebook, it has a beautiful red and gunmetal/silver brocade pattern with two magnet locks. She wrote a really touching nice message inside, that almost made me cry, hehe. Can't wait to start on my book!

♥ Nick-nacks and candy from Victoria
She currently lives in London, and bought some trinkets for me from a shop in Covent Garden. A hyrule shield mint box, super cute kitty socks, Pocky, cute erasers etc~ Lots of cute stuff!

♥ Homemade candy from Veronica
She put it in a really nice bowl with a stem, and decorated it a bit with some AB crystals :3 She said she was going to buy me something, but I'm happy anyway :)

 Redken product from Pernille, as well as a Hyrule shield key ring :3 
Well, nothing much more to say about that, except that I'm incrrrrredibly grateful for the hair product, because OH LAWD I need it XDD My poor hair.

 ♥ Lush Shower Gel from Sara
It's called Twilight, and it has glitter in it. Hehe. Smell really nice, can't wait to try it :)

Hmmmmmm... I don't think I remember any more presents now... I always forget someone!
Anypoo! I should really go to bed, I need all the beauty sleep I can get before going out with my friends tomorrow night! Can't wait for 2013 to start, so much adventure and travel :)

Enjoy your holiday everybody!

Finally back home!

I arrived back home to my family yesterday! I was too tired to blog, and I just wanted to settle in a bit. I packed pretty heavy this time, I hope to be stylish this Christmas! My packing is always a hot mess, but now I packed colour and style coordinated. So I hope that will help me finding something to wear without too many nervous breakdowns XD

I have no plans for Christmas so far, so these days should be interesting. I'm currently watching Gossip Girl and eating chocolate, just because I can! :) Lazy days.
I'm currently staying at my dad and stepmoms place, and they're taking care of the cutest papillon dog ever, Emma! Only a dog can get me take a walk voluntarily, haha. It was nice, I can't wait to get my own dog some time in the future!

 So cute and fluffy!

Emma says hi to you guys~

I also found my dads old Calvin & Hobbes collection, so I think I'm going to do a bit of reading before I go to sleep tonight :D So much nostalgia.

In Norwegian Calvin & Hobbes is called Tommy og Tigern, Tommy and the Tiger :)

I hope all of you who celebrate Christmas have a great one! 
And I'll see you the 22nd, if the world hasn't ended by then ;)

... I almost miss having blonde hair.. haha :')

Purple hair! 髪を染めました!

So last night I got tired of having uneven yellow-blonde hair, so I finally dyed it! ...myself! 

I have never dyed my own hair unless it's been black on black, so it was an interesting experience. 
I don't have a double mirror, so I actually had to tape my make up mirror on the wall behind me to see the back of my head. 

Like this:
If it looks stupid and works.. it ain't stupid ;)


♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ 

Aaaand the result! 

 Also, new stripey pants from H&M! They are the bees knees.

In normal daylight:

I'm super happy, and proud! I better buy some more colour when I get the chance, I guess this one fades quite fast! 

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ 

...But NOW I have to get to school, because today is my last exam, the Japanese oral exam! Aaaah I'm kinda nervous. But I guess it'll be allright, I've been talking to myself in Japanese the last days. I hope that helps.
Wish me luck~!

My Litas have arrived!!

They are HERE! I'm super excited!

I actually wondered wether I should make a vlog about this or not, but I went for a no... I'm too shy! Haha, I have no idea "how" to talk to a camera... But I did make a video! Take a look :)

I am superhappy with this pair! They are a close to perfect fit, they weren't small at all. Well, I don't think you could fit a pair of thick socks in there, but these aren't made for Norwegian winters anyway ;)

Thank you Solestruck!

Waiting.. And todays look!

As I am waiting for my Litas, I have googled around about the size for these shoes, if they're big, small, or true to size.

....most of the reviews I've read say that the shoes are quite small and narrow in size... 
Makes me worry if the shoes fit me at all, or if I have a slightest chance of getting my short fat foot into those boots. :P "¤HUI/R¤#LKSGVI/ WHY didn't I go safe and order in US6? Oh well. 

Let's hope for the best, eh?
*crosses fingers*

 * * * *

Today's look!

Thought I'd finally used the white frame glasses I bought this summer! My hair is still yellorange, I'm bleaching it once more next week, and then (maybe after being blonde for a liiiittle while) I'm going PURPLE up in this bitch! 

First exam of the semester is TOMORROW! Aaaaah! Let me run around the house and scream my lungs out for a minute k? I'm nervous. Well, not nervous about the exam. That is why I'm nervous. Why aren't I freaking out over this exam?
Hope it's because I've learnt what I need to learn, and not because I don't give a sh*t.

Let's hope for an A, people! *returns to kanji practice*

Solestruck is having a HUGE sale right now! Lots of Jeffrey Campbell for sale :) So did I buy anything? 


Now I only could afford one pair, so it was tough choice! But it eventually landed on Jeffrey Campbell Lita Spike in purple suede. 

Aren't they gorgeous? (And they match my current layout as well :P) 

Some of the prices are crazy, I wish I could buy more! 

These are the other shoes I concidered buying:

Jeffrey Campbell Cleata Black Smoke

Jeffrey Campbell Shadow Stud (Any colour)

Jeffrey Campbell Lite Spike CMYK (Any colour)

Jeffrey Campbell Night Walk in checkers

....And lots more! 

I think I made a good choice going for the purple ones, they look gorgeous and still could be used everyday. Also, they're going to match my soon-to-be purple hair! Awesome. I bought them in size US5, I reeeeally hope they fit! If not, I'll be kinda mad. Sometimes US6 is way too big even if it says "true to size", so I'll take my chances. With this price, it's okay to! 

Can't wait can't wait can't wait can't wait can't wait can't wait can't wait can't wait!

My hair~

So, now I have carrot hair.

It's no longer red with 10cm brown roots! Yay! 

Yesterday I had this hairstyle, big and curly! Of course, with the damp weather Bergen has it died momentarily. 

Feels good wearing purples and pinks again, without the red hair ruining the look!

Later that day me and a friend when to get some sun, and I soon remembered that UV lights make bleached hair green. And I was wearing UV reactive eyeshadow as rouge. I look like an oompa loompa, haha! Just had to snap a shot:) 

Now I'm not planning to look like an oompa loompa, the plan from now on is this:
1. Bleach once more next weekend, with purple toner to remove the yellow
2. Apply the purple hair colour, and get delicious hair.

I do have a bottle of Stargazer shocking pink, it would be fun to play with both purple and pink.. Not completely sure yet, but I'm sure I'll find out :) 

I got tagged!

I was tagged by the beautiful Xiaoting, so here's my post!

1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves. 
2. They must also answer the 11 questions the 'tagger' has set for them.
3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
4. They must then choose 11 bloggers to tag.
5. These lucky bloggers must be told.
6. There are no tag backs.

2. I am left handed (yeeeeah)
3. I can't go half a year without dyeing my hair another colour (Next post will be about this, lol)
4. I never know what style I'm going for , it always ends up kinda halfassed.
5. I have an unhealthy obsession where I make scenarios in my head with someone, often ending up in an imaginary fight, and becoming mad at that person IRL for absolute no reason. I'm sure I'm not he only one who does this! :P
6. I can like all kinds of music except country and black/death metal.
7. I love statistics. That's why I can survive the job of being a telephone market researcher.
8. I can lick my elbow.
Damn, my tongue hurts now.
9. I love the 90's. But, I hate the "If you remember this you were born in the 90's", "You're a 90's kid when.." etc memes that've been going around the interwebz for a while now. It's incredibly stupid.

11.  I often prefer guy friends over girl friends.
Bros over hos!

1. Who inspire you the most?

High fashion brand: Alexander McQueen / Gareth Pugh

I made a video!

I recently started drawing with fountain pens, and so far it's an interesting of outlining my drawings :) 

I decided, just for practice, to make a small video with me outlining a rabbit I drew. I'm starting to get more and more tempted to try out vlogging, so this is kind of a try out for figuring out how movie maker + youtube + everything works.
I have also been challenged by Natasha to do a video in Japanese. Since I'm in my second year, I should be able to talk Japanese lightly for a few minutes. I'm thinking of doing a presentation video in Japanese though, how does that sound? I will of course sub it to English. It'll be good practice before I go to Japan :)

Anyway, enough rambling. Here's my vid :)

Ephixa - Ideekay

I love walking around town with this darling booming into my ears.

I also miss my hair, as in with no horrible roots. Next week I'll get some money, and then I will start my battle plan; to get purple hair! I don't feel so comfortable in red hair anymore, I don't feel pretty. I guess I have to cut my hair as well since the bleach will fry some off. Fringe? Layered? Shortened, but side-swept fringe? I don't know, I'll probably do all this within the end of the year. :P

Road to Tokyo

My life isn't super-interesting as of now, it's basically school-work-eat-sleep. And watch movies and series.
oh yusss. My life is totes perf..
I also had an awesome Halloween celebration, but I still can't find that damn cam cable x) So party pictures will come later, as well as my new Galstar stuff! 

I'm now in the application process to get to Tokyo in less than 6 months! Huzzah! It's a pretty long application, but it's not something I'm surprised about. Japan, the land of bureaucracy :P
I'm super excited, I've got my passport renewed, photos taken, application filled out (halfway through)..

I can't believe I'll be walking around here in 6 months:

Waseda University 早稲田大学

Shinjuku 新宿

I can't wait!! I'm still not sure where I'm going to live though, I hope I get a nice apartment with my classmate.

Busy bee, life and unicycling

I have so much to do lately, I have to be careful not to get all burned out. Phew!

I was supposed to blog about my gets from Galstar, but I can't find the USB cabel for my camera! So this'll be just a text entry. I was out with friends yesterday, celebrating my roomie Susannes 20th birthday! It was a lot of fun, and today I've been: 
1. Sleeping
2. Discovering Youtubers like Jack and Finn Harries, Tyler Oakley, Caspar Lee etc
3. Sleeping more
4. Eating cake


I was supposed to work more on my halloween costume (yay!), but yesterdays intake of white wine had clearly changed my schedule. I've done a bit of cleaning though, og me!

* * *

Lately I haven't felt like myself, it's like a new personality is trying to come through, and I don't know why it's happening, or if I'm just imagining things. Am I losing myself, my identity, and having it replaced with something else? Something better, or worse?
I'm kinda confused whether I should continue my dreams on becoming a fashion/clothing designer, or do something completely different. I'm afraid I'll never be good enough to get a stabile income from it, or that I'll be sick of it all within two years. I know I'm not the only one with these issues, and that I in reality should just suck it up since other people have far much worse problems, but I just need to let out a little steam since I don't really know who to talk to about these kind of things.
Whenever I go inside my own personal bubble to reflect on things I usually get over whatever problem I have and move on, but now it seems like my insecurities are going to stick for a while.

But really though, I do feel a bit better just by writing this down and putting my thoughts into structured sentences :) Maybe I just needed this! 

* * *

Here's a video that made me smile today:

All this youtube exploring makes me want to try vlogging :)
Have a nice weekend!

Ameblo! And other things :)

Some days ago, after going to a lecture on "the Japanese" WWW, I decided to make myself a small blog where I can practice my Japanese! 
So if you have an ameba profile, add me/follow me/whatever it says XD

My profile is HERE.

Now, I don't know if you can see my blog entries, some have had problem getting access to them. Problem is, my Japanese is steady enough yet to find out where I can change those settings! Help, anyone? :) People can only view my entries if I say it's okay, but I want it to be an open blog!

* * * * *

Lately I've been picking up my drawing and watercolour equipment, I've been very creative this past week! It feels sooo good. And I'm already ahead on my Japanese homework, so I don't feel guilty if I draw and paint for hours ^^

I know I'm no Da Vinci, I've actually become fond of making childish caricatures of my friends and characters.. They're easy to do, and I think they turn out pretty cute:)

It's Susanne and me at the top, and at the bottom Emilie :) My roomies and me, yay!

søndag 7. oktober 2012

Woah, September's gone already!

WARNING: Super long post!

So I've been super busy lately with my Japanese homework and such, I've had no time to update my blog as much as I wanted to. 

What has happened this last month? 
  • School life
  • Partying
  • Went to Trondheim
  • Seigmen concert
This month has kind of been super awesome, but also very tiring. Roller coaster deluxe!

  • School life
So I'm now in my second year of my Bachelors degree in Japanese, and it's becoming harder and harder to keep up. But somehow I manage to tag along nicely, so no despair yet! :D
On a side note, from April 1st 2013, I will most likely go to Waseda University in Tokyo for a year long exchange program!! I'm SO looking forward to it, I've been looking at different courses I can take, and I've been looking at apartments... *squeee* So now I have to renew my passport, fill out the actual application and get all my papers in order! And I should start thinking what I'm going to bring.. Two suitcases is my maximum limit, I think.
I think I'll start a new blog about my life in Japan, how it's like to be a Norwegian in Japan etc. y/n?
  • Partying
Yes, partying. I've been partying a bit too much lately I guess, my bank account says so, and my liver says so. :P But the parties we've had were incredibly fun! 
The weekend 14th-16th was crazy. Met gorgeous fantastic people, and I really wish I could go back.

 Anne came to visit! *heartheartheart*

 Bought new bunny ears, they're so fancy!

On Sunday Emilie and I visited Simon and Trond.
Pizza, movies, gaming and good company. Perfect hangover Sunday. ♥ ♥ ♥

Top hat!
  • Trip to Trondheim
So I went to Trondheim the week after, and it was soooo good to see my family and old friends again! Hadn't seen mom and my grandparents in almost nine months, and dad and Rita in a whole year! Wow.. I was glad they all were doing well :)
On Friday 21st, I went to the house warming party of some friends of mine!
Haven't been to a more wild party in a long time, I think I'm getting old..

 My BFF Veronica and me!

 Susann and me, sooo good to see her again!

Samuel and me :D 
  • Seigmen concert
Last saturday (29th) at another house warming party I was told Seigmen was in town, and had two concerts that weekend. I haven't listened to the band in ages, but it's one of my favorite Norwegian bands! I had nooo idea they were playing, and I was basically broke. I was super depressed that I couldn't go, but then the money spender in me said "You know what? You do have enough money, just get in line early enough to grab one of the last spare tickets.". So I did. 8D Stood in line for almost two hours to get a ticket, ran home and got properly dressed, and the I went to one of the best concerts I've ever been to. There was also a signing session at a record store earlier that day, so I got to meet them as well!!

 Yes, that's me and Seigmen. And yes, I look absolutely retarded :'DD


This turned out to be a pretty long entry, but now you know what I've been up to! 
I don't have any lectures next week, but I'm going to a meeting to discuss my stay at Waseda, so all the papers are in order :) Can't wait! I'll keep you posted ^^

Now, I have to get out of bed and make some breakfast, it's 2:23 already... -_- but that's Sundays for ya!

lørdag 8. september 2012


So I got my Nelly stuff in the mail today, hurrah! The shoes were pretty hard, but fit nicely. I will be expecting sore feet tonight.The hat is insanely comfortable, and didn't look as much as a fur-mullet on me as it did on the model on lol.

 Come winter, I'm ready for you! Pew pew pew! 

I can't wait to go out with this hat tonight. I better start planning my outfit since I don't have much else to do! 
I'm also thinking about dyeing my hair black again...I know I WANT purple hair, but as I'm applying for jobs and my hair is pretty dead as it is, it's not really an option. So.. Black goes with everything, and I know I don't look like a dead possum with it. I do like having red hair, but I'm SO sick of not being able to wear pink (!!), it's ridiculous XD We'll see what I decide to do.

I had a job interview at GameStop last Wednesday, I'm really curious if I'll get the job or not! If not, I'll just keep applying for jobs :) Just keep swimming, just keep swimming as Dory says! It would be awesome to work in a game store though, I need to get in touch with my gamer-habits again!

Have an AWESOME weekend everyone, drink responsibly XD

lørdag 1. september 2012

Nelly sale!

So... has started their sale..........
I decided I needed another pair (yes, another pair..) of shoes! I think I need to clean out my closet even more if I want to have room for anything, really. Maybe I should sell some more stuff?

Anyway, this is what I ordered!

Lovely black boots~

I also ordered this XD I'M READY FOR THE WINTER COLD. Even though Bergen doesn't really get that cold, compared to Trondheim..:P

I think these two items will look super awesome together! Can't wait them to arrive!

Have a nice Saturday everyone!

Some small shopping

I've been feeling a bit low lately, so I did some shopping from Galstar to feel better. I know it sounds like a dangerous activity, but I really limited myself this time! *proud*
I need a pair of new everyday shoes/boots since I don't always feel comfortable or ~fab~ in sneakers, and I fell for these boots in grey:

Aren't they awesome? I want the ones in black and red as well, of course! OMG, the red ones. Now I'm starting to regret my choice of colour. Haha.

And with me, I can never buy only one thing when I'm ordering something online, so I bought a whole outfit! That is also a thing I've never done, there have never been much connection between the items I buy! I just buy what I think is cute :P

Simple dress, short black version
Isn't it cute? 

And I also bought awesome leggings in silver, showing here:

Since the shoes are from reservation, the items won't get despatched until September 20th. I can wait for my babies! 

Also, some posts back I told you guys about the freshmen/sponsor week here at uni, and that I was announced to be the best sponsor(yay!). I got a gift card at Galleriet with 1000NOK (~170USD), and last week I went shopping with that gift card! 
Here's some of my loot, I went bananas at H&M XD
 This is the only dress I have a picture of while I'm wearing it, it's soooo my new favorite party dress! Now if I only could get rid of my red hair..

Vinyl bag and oxford shoes, white polka dot salopette, black tulle dress, stripe pantyhose, a bra and leopard mini dress. Oh yes.

I also got this lovely kitch tea pot/thermos from Kitch'n with my gift card, isn't it gorgeous?
I'm in love with it
