Revival - perhaps


Hello and good to see you all again! :)

Am I back? I honestly don't know. As the ones of you following me on Instagram know, my health is a huge issue and has been for a long while now, and, unfortunately will be for every day for the rest of my life. Unless a miracle cure is invented, which is something I certainly can't reckon with when I plan my days.

Since I have to get out of the appartment once in a while, I've decided to try to do outfit posts. The reasons I've never done outfit posts before are a) I tend to wear pretty much the same thing every day and b) my wardrobe has until now been the worst mess imaginable. There could literally be a dead reindeer underneath that pile of clothes and I wouldn't have noticed. Fortunately, that was not the case. And even more fortunate is that I've gotten help sorting everything up.

So now I have a better overview of my collection of clothes, and, thus, I can plan my outfits better.

The next step I plan to do is borrowing a mannequin from somebody, and take photos of everything I own so that I can do some collages of stuff that go well together. I know there are apps for that but I have no idea which ones are good and not. Do you have any suggestions?

The woman who helped me organize my closet had looked up Stylebook and Smart closet for me, but which one should I choose?

Again, it's so good to be blogging again and I hope that something else won't snatch my attention away from this completely again. Now that I don't feel the pressure to produce makeup looks and buy new stuff for reviews anymore I am pretty sure it will be easier to keep up blogging.

I'm not chasing readers anymore and I'm done being scared to utter my own opinions and being scared of speaking my mind because someone might be offended and stop reading my blog.
As many of you, I too struggle with accepting that I matter. That I am worthy of love and friendship and of expressing my thoughts.

And that struggle begins here, taking a leap over the threshold of other's judgement.

Thank you so much for stopping by, for reading my ramblings! I would love to hear your thoughts of the topics in this posts, so feel free to write something in the comment section. :)

Also, I have a totally different haircut now. 


Have a lovely day, evening, night, or whatever it might be in your corner of the world!

Until next time,

Love
Tanja

Martian

If I would pick one favorite product that I have tried this far this year, it would most certainly be the Cosmic Eyedusts by Black Moon Cosmetics! 

They're packed with pretty sparkles and despite the black base they're easy to blend into your smokey eye, to add a little *not-so-subtle* hint of color. 




Products used;

• Kat Von D Metal matte palette, Bones and Jet
• Kat Von D Alchemist palette, Emerald
• MAC Copperplate eyeshadow (discontinued)
• Black Moon Cosmetics Cosmic Eyedust, Martian
• Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara 

Thank you for stopping by! Have a lovely day!

Halloween Scene

Hey bats and spooks! 

I'm sorry I've been gone for a while. This summer has been extra hard on me, both mentally and physically, and I've spent most of it on my couch with Candy Crush and a cup of tea. Struggling with depression can be extremely exhausting and getting things done can be impossible, even if they're fun things like blogging. 


If you're following me on Instagram you've already seen this but I thought I'd share it here as well. :) 




I've got to say, fuck it's hard to find a matte, vibrant lavender purple eyeshadow! The one I've used here is a mixture of four or five different shades. Do you have any purples like this that you can recommend? 


Thanks a lot for stopping by! I hope you all have had a lovely summer this far. 


Stay spooky,

Spider Queen

As I mentioned in an earlier post I've been in a very Halloweeny mood lately. Here in Sweden we don't really celebrate Halloween, but I used to host a yearly Halloween party as a kid and I've been yearning to recreate that spooky feeling of anticipation that the end of October always brought with it. So this year I will actually celebrate with some kind of festivity. 


Anyway, the day-dreaming about late autumn and its spooky aura has sent my gothic mind into a creative frenzy and here is another result of that. As much as this is a Halloween-appropriate look for most people I would totally wear this for everyday occasions. What about you? :) 






Products; 

Kat Von D; Nosferatu liquid lipstick, as a base to achieve that dried blood feeling, Jet eyeshadow, Pink Opal as the highlight in the middle of the eyelid and Tattoo liner in Trooper

Sugarpill; Tako and Love+

Anastasia Beverly Hills; Venetian red and Red Ochre


Thank you so much for stopping by! 

Take care! 

Love, Luna Von Bat

Stitches

The other day I finally got around to do a new eye look. I have huge problems starting new projects (and finishing them...) and I've had zero patience to spare for all the steps involved in learning how to take decent pictures with my "new" camera. But I finally did it, and I'm quite happy with how it turned out. :) 






Products used;

•Sugarpill Tako, Acidberry and Poison Plum

•Kat Von D eyeshadow in Jet and Tattoo Liner in Trooper


I've been in a very Halloweeny mood lately and my mind has conjured up various ideas for new looks that I want to do. But then it comes down to actually do them, so only time will tell how that story goes. ;) 

Thank you so much for stopping by and if you feel like it leave a comment in the section below before you leave! 


Stay spooky until next time! 

Love,

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! 

Love, Luna Von Bat

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,
