Blue Eyes, Blue Lips

I still haven't gotten it into my routines to update the blog in the same frequency of which I update my Instagram account, so here's a late post about a look I wore last week. It was actually inspired by a kind and lovely girl called @tanztummiternacht on Instagram.


The past month I've been doing what hopefully will be the last, long investigation on my health issues, and probably the most important one. Throughout my whole life I've had issues with anxiety, panic attacks and reoccurring depression and the aim of this investigation is to find the core of those problems (or as my husband put it "To see what the troll in your mailbox is"). They will have the results for me in a couple of weeks and I'm super anxious for what the outcome will be. 

The chain I've made myself and I have more of them planned. :D

Hope you liked this post and if you did, please feel free to leave a comment before you go! :) 

Stay spooky darklings!

Nice Composure

Hello lovelies! 

Here's a super-neutral (well, to me at least...) look that I wore for work on Tuesday last week. One of my lovely co-workers has started a fun little makeup challenge where she's given the rest of us one product for each day of the week that we are to incorporate in our makeup look that day. This day it was the paint pot Nice Composure. Here I've used that product on all elements of my makeup look; as eyeshadow, lipstick, for my brows and as a contour. 


What colors would you use to create a neutral look yet keep your spookiness? 

I hope you all will be having a nice weekend! 

Stay spooky,

Those Long Fluttery Lashes

Hello spooks and darklings! 

Lately I've been rocking these amazing, incredibly long lashes by Kryolan. I'm completely in love with them! Despite of their skyrocketing length, these falsies are incredibly comfortable to wear. The only drawback is that it's impossible to wear sunglasses with these babes on. XD

Hello fellow spooks!

Finally I managed to create an interesting makeup look to show you. Although I've had my "new" camera for over two years now I still struggle with it to get even decent pictures so here I've used the camera on my husbands phone. And then I ended up having anxiety about not using my advanced, expensive camera... Blah!

Well, here's the look anyways...


Idun Norrsken foundation, Jorunn
MAC Pro Longwear concealer, NW10

Sugarpill, Love+
Kat Von D, Jet and Bone
MAC Modern Twist, Squid
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, Trooper

Hope you like the look! :) 

Stay spooky!

Dusky Mermaid Eyes

For Christmas my husband got me the Kat Von D Metal/Matte palette (it is apparently limited edition, which I didn't know when I got it). I'm very inspired by this range of colors and when I sat down to play with them this is how it turned out. 

Resting bitch-face...

Unfortunately my cameras battery were dead so I couldn't take any "real" photos or close ups. Now the battery's charging and hopefully I will have time again soon to sit down and try out all the other colors in the palette. :) 

Which colors in this palette do you like best? Personally I can't decide which one's the prettiest, since they're all so adorable. 

The shadows I've used are; 
Ignite (lid)
Moss (inner/outer corners, crease)
Bone (browbone highlight)
Suede (crease transition color)
Jet (as a soft eyeliner) 

Lips: Kay Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Mother

False lashes are MAC #7

I'm hoping to be able to do another look soon (I'm thinking about something insanely purple...) but my eyes have been running like two waterfalls for the past week, probably because of the cold January weather. 

Anyways, see you soon! :)

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks

Holiday  season brought with it some great collections of makeup this year, and among them were these mini-sized liquid lipsticks from Kat Von D. As major part of the beauty community I'm totally bananas about liquid lipsticks, and I do think the ones from Kat Von D are very nice.

The lipsticks I got are from 2 different kits (one with Susperia and Melancholia and one with the rest). Earlier, I've got Exorcism and Outlaw.

Row 1 (left to right) Santa Sangre, Plath, Lovesick & Melancholia

Row 2 (left to right) Outlaw, Echo, Susperia & Mother

Row 3 (left to right) Exorcism, Roxy, L.U.V. & Backstage Bambi

Santa Sangre


Have you tried any of her lipsticks? Which one is your favorite?

The Year Of Hell (and Heaven)

 Ok, so I told you before about my health issues and back when I announced my reappearance in the blogging universe I honestly thought that it couldn't get any worse. Boy, was I wrong! When I started this new blog I was on sick leave  from my retail manager job and having a couple of months rest renewed my energy levels a little bit. Being the productive and creative soul that I am, I felt very restless being home for such a long time and was eager to get back to work. My doctor (who has been an amazing support in all this) agreed to let me go back to work 50% and so I did. It felt so good to be back! Suddenly I almost felt like a complete human being again. But, still, I had this endless tiredness swallowing me every day.

My days were literally just going to work for four hours and then sleeping all afternoon waiting for my fiancé (now husband -wohoo!) to come home, having dinner and then going back to sleep again. I tried to exercise but whenever I did so I got so sick I had to stay in bed for days afterwards. I felt like a 30-years-old trapped in the body of a 90 year old lady.

Finally at the end of summer I got to go to a specialist who diagnosed me with fibromyalgia and myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). What a relief to have a name for the living hell! I'm so grateful that it's not something lethal even though this means that I will probably wake up every day for the rest of my life in pain and with excruciating tiredness. I have had to make a lot of adjustments in my everyday life to make sure that I don't overstrain myself and it's going to take a long time to accept that I'm not able to do everything that I once could.
And then this surge of inspiration made me feel almost like my old self again. Almost.
If you made it this far through this massive amount of text; thank you! Thank you for taking your time listening to my story!

So what's up with you all? Have 2016 treated you well? I hope you're all having a lovely holiday and with any luck I'll see you soon. :)

P.S. Extra points for the person who can spot the Star Trek reference ;D
