I'll be double posting on here and my old blog for a couple of more days, then I'll just be here. All bloglovin' followers have been moved here, and I'll link my new blog to my facebook soon as well. 
 
My e-mail account is currently down. I can't receive mails.  I don't know why, probably something wrong with the malinz.com domain. I'm working on it, though. I'm having some serious angst about this. Waiting for some really important replies from various places, and I don't know what happens if they are sent to me while my mail isn't working, if I ever get them or if they're lost. Real awkward if I don't and I have to mail around asking if they sent me a reply or not. Have any of you had this problem? Do you know what it might be? I use g-mail. I've messaged my website host about it but am yet to get a reply.

MOVING MY BLOG

Hi guys!
 
I'm just gonna go ahead and put it out there that I'm moving back to blogger/blogspot. It's been almost four years since I moved to blogg.se, and while I haven't had any actual problems with this platform, and it's really great in many ways, I just don't feel that it suits me. All the blogs I truly enjoy and aspire to be like are at blogger. It feels like all the bloggers who still use this playform are 14 year old swedish girls dressed to their teeth in Hollister, or middleaged moms blogging about their everyday life with kids. No offence to them (and obviously not EVERYONE at blogg.se are like that) but it's just not who I am.
 
As it is I can't move my old posts to the new platform (one of the ways that blogg.se kinda sucks, but I'm working on it), but naturally I'll be keeping this blog. I'm gonna see if I can try and transfer my bloglovin' followers though. You're supposed to be able to do that, but I haven't tried yet. I'll get back to you on that. Followers transferred!
 
I'm not 100% sure about the domain name yet, but as it is my new blog can be found on http://malintoashes.blogspot.com. It's not much to look at at the moment, but hopefully it'll be so soon. I'm not sure how blogging's gonna be in the near future, if I'll do a post on each, or whatever, but I promise to keep you updated, and when the move is final I'll let you know.
 
It would be coolio if you all came along on my move!

Kinda loving Rihanna's new single Stay. Especially the line that is the title of this post. It's just accurate in so many ways in my life.

Happy Valentine's day and all that

 
It's hard to forget what day it is because for the past two weeks people keep reminding you of it. I'm spending tonight like every other night, alone with food that's not good for me and my TV-shows. I know society is telling me I should be bitter about it, but I'm not. It's a good fucking life, and I enjoy every second of my solitude (and they say I'm too introvert?).
 
I've never celebrated this holiday, not only because I've never been in a serious relationship during it, but also because since I was six years old it's been a completely different holiday. Today my babygirl Lovisa, aka Luidgy if you live with us, is fifteen years old. To me she'll always be seven though. Happy birthday sis, I love you, and hope you have a great day!
 
I was thinking of making a valentine's day card a la tumblr-style, but I spent all of five minutes making one for ma homegirl Hillevi, and was exhausted afterwards, so no such luck for you. Instead you get this wabcam photo of me that is awkward in so many ways. Hope you all get some sweet lovin' on this highly over-hyped day. My thoughts also go out to St Valetinus who was abused and then had is head chopped of because of his religion a long time ago.

M camera decided my hair was dark purple today, and I tried really hard to photoshop it to it's actual colour. This is as good as it gets, but it's still not right.
 
Time for the new episode of Castle, then some Miami Medical rewatch (my fav hospital show, too bad there's only one season).

[5] male characters

It took me a while, but here they are. My future husbands. I'm usually more invested in female character, so I thought finding five for this would be hard. I was wrong. I forgot how the TV (and film for that matter) business is still very male-dominated (you should all read up on the Bechdel test, it's pretty sick). Though, it was actually harder to choose for this than for the females, because there's so many more to choose from, and too few that I'm really invested in.


Mal Reynolds (Firefly, portrayed by Nathan Fillion)
Sometimes I feel like calling myself Mal, and that's because Mal from Firefly is cool. I like Nathan Fillion in Castle as well, but Firefly is just something else.

Jim Moriarty (Sherlock, portrayed by Andrew Scott)
I debated myself on whether I wanted to pick Sherlock or Moriarty for this. Moriarty won 'cause he's better looking. 'S gonna be sad if he's really dead and doesn't return for series 3.


Dale Cooper (Twin Peaks, portrayed by Kyle MacLachlan)
I said this before, but I was so in love with Agent Cooper the first time I watched Twin Peaks. Isn't he just dreamy? Still practically my definition of the perfect man.


Fox Mulder (X-Files, portrayed by David Duchovny)
I don't even know what to say. It's Mulder, I think it speaks for itself.

The Doctor ((new) Doctor Who, portrayed by Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith)
I contemplated picking only one of the Doctors, but then I thought 'why?' I think they're all pretty great in their own way. Can't speak for the Doctors from old DW, though, because I have yet to watch it (there's just SO many seasons!).
 
Next up is five OTP's. Now that's gonna be tricky to pick out. I am the WORST shipper.

Who you gonna call?



 
Touched up the pink in my hair today. Wasn't really needed, but I didn't want it any more faded. I figure I'll try and wash it as rarely as I can stand (no more than every other day at least), and then mix some dye in the conditioner once a week. It'll work, right? Found some tiny pieces of extensions that weren't black, and made them match my hair, to fill it out at the front.
 
Still a bit lost inside my head. Slept for about five hours yesterday afternoon, and still crashed in bed about three hours later, and slept for another ten hours. Woken up with a headache every day since Thursday. Probably my yearly winter-low. Cold weather makes me sad, and unreasonably angry. Good job my hair is great, if nothing else!
 
Gonna finish watching Ghostbusters now. Cheerio!

Completely out of it today. The new season of Community helps in 30 Rocks absence. I really wish there were more episodes of Wire in the Blood, because I could do fine with some british crime drama with characters I already know. I've already seen all the WitB episodes so many times I know them inside and out. That show is always gonna hold a special place in my heart.
 
 
 
Anyway, I got these coupons from msdressy for you guys:
 
$20 off: 733fc3482e  (valid up to Feb. 20th)
$30 off: 36ba600e47 (valid up to Feb. 20th)
$50 off: 849193c2a6  (valid up to March 5th)
 
There's no minimum spend for the $20 and $30, but for the $50 it's $300. Orders placed after Jan. 20th won't be shipped until after Feb. 26th, due to the chinese new year.

Tardis rave lol / Green screen


We were learning how to use and light a green screen at school, and I made them green screen me into the Tardis, because why not? So here's Kristoffer, Malvina and I having a mini Tardis rave. We didn't have any music when filming this, if you're wondering why the "dancing" is exceptionally awkward. And that I'm wearing my DW tee is a coincidence, I didn't know this was gonna happen when I got dressed today. Rather, I was inspired to do it by the fact that I was wearing it.

I like the way you work it



You guys would not believe how much I love my hair right now. Well, not right now this moment because it's a bit greasy, but in general. I am so pleased with the colour(s). Ginger with pink roots, doesn't get any better. I am also perfecting my "messy up-do that looks spontaneous but really isn't"-skills. It's a fucking art form.

I'm so bummed because I got this moon necklace with a sapphire (obviously not a real one) of eBay, because sapphire is my birthstone, but the chain (that is really pretty) is a stupid length and keeps falling down behind my shirt so you can't see it. First world fucking problems.

I am really unimaginative today, and couldn't think of a title to the post.

Picture Diary / February 2-4 / Free as my hair









 
1. 'Den Elektriska Flickan' (The Electric Girl) @ Hipp. It was pretty great. It was meant for kids really, and the plot was a bit lame because it was basically a rip-off of Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro, but the scenery/costume/make-up/acting was SO amazing it totally made up for it. I'd tell you to go see it, because it was a true pleasure to look at, but it was the last show this Saturday, so you can't. You can google it for pictures, but without the movement it's just not the same.
 
2. Just after the bleach-party. I had to blow dry it really quick and put it up, because I was going to a family gathering. Funny how my family hardly noticed the change, they're so used to it by now...
 
3. Why, you ask? Because I'm embarrasing, and I have a new camera. And I watched Wire in the Blood so many times, that I get bored with the plot and get easily distracted by things, like my mobile phone camera.
 
4. A Really blurry picture of me and my mum in the background. My mum is better than yours, she knows everything.
 
5. This wig was made by angels in heaven, and if it was socially acceptable, didn't itch like a crazy bitch after a while and didn't get stuck in everything, I'd wear it out.
 
6. Alex, my baby. I very recently watched Simone Lahbib in Bad Girls, and now I'm rewatching Wire in the Blood (for the maybe 5th or 6th time?),  and I'm just like 'my, hasn't she aged', then I realise it's like ten years between the first season of Bad Girls and the last of WitB. You're allowed to age in ten years. Anyway, I am still so very bummed about WitB being cancelled (even if it was like five years ago now?). The ending sucked. They didn't even get together in the end, what kind of shit is that?!

Again, with the "won't have time to blog"-statement, and then I do it anyway. I'm gonna make a cheesecake now, I'm having house guests over tomorrow.

All kinds of

 
Picture from last night. I have a thing for having webcam pics for DP, so I had to take a few of them too. Kinda awkward how well my favourite tee matches my hair (worse irl). It's so hard to take pictures of my current hair colour(s) that does it justice. It looks so pink here, when it's actually more orange. It's kinda orange with neon pink roots.
 
Woke up 5 AM this morning and couldn't sleep, so I went up and lay on the couch, surfed le internetz for fifteen minutes, then fell alseep here. My couch is like a sleeping pill.
 
My giveaway closed yesterday, and the winner was Fati!

Extreme Hair Makeover



 
So, yeah. With some help from my friendsies, I had a massive bleach job, and then when my hair was platinum blonde/yellow/orange I put in some pink dye to get rid of the blonde and yellow. These are not good pictures of what it acually looks like, because it's too dark outside to take good pictures, so you have to take my word for it when I tell you it turned out pretty badass. I also cut my edges a bit, because obviously you need to do that when you bleach your hair from black to... well, anything.
 
For you who are wondering, my hair is currently fine. It appears to be made of steel, and won't break for anything (it's where my magic is). But that's all down to good genes, and not special care or products. I know they say that if you're gonna bleach your hair from dark you should go to a hairdresser, but in my experience it doesn't really matter. If your hair can take it, it doesn't make much difference what bleach you use. Although, you do need to have someone there who can help you with the back of your head (thanks, Hillevicious!).
 
I used two packages of Mood Ultra Blonde, had it in for between 1,5 to 2 hours, and then Directions Flamingo pink mixed with about 60-80% conditioner. Before I had black hair, a bit faded.

Last Lunch

 
Why does my babies have to leave me? 30 Rock is my absolute fav comedy show, and that says a lot because I'm really picky with comedy. Seven seasons and now it's over. It's not as bad as with Fringe, I haven't followed 30 Rock for the entire seven years. But nonetheless, it's horrible that it's over. Tina Fey is God.

Can you hear the horses?

I know you're all super jelly about this sweater. My mum knitted two of these for me and Sara when we kids. Obviously (or not) it's too small, but you know these days everything is cropped on either the length or the sleaves anyway.
 
I'm leaving for the theatre with my mum and Lovisa in twenty minutes. I'm not wearing this, because it itches.
 
Isn't it funny how everytime I say I might not have time to blog I always end up blogging more than usual?

I love this movie more than puppies and seafood.

Picture Diary / January 31 / iPhone 5 and Casual posing





 
1. I got my new phone two days ago, but yesterday was the first day I actually used it, you know, out. I have to say I love everything about it. It's nice to have a better camera and more storage memory. I had 8gb before, now I have 16, which makes shitloads of difference. When I was starting it up yesterday, and syncing with iTunes, I was just like: SYNC ALL THE MUSIC. The background picture isn't mine, but from THIS amazing Wildfox lookbook that I'm totally in love with. Nyasha Matonhodze is my current model-obsession.
 
2. My friends and I tried out the camera, and it's pretty nice, especially compared to the one on my iPhone 4. The first picture is my friends trying to pose causally. And as you can see Kristoffer as a real talent fot this, unlike the other two. And if you're wondering why I'm covering my face in the second one, like a 14 year old girl, then it's because I have an image to uphold, and when people take photos of me and I know they're doing it, I look like an idiot most of the time. Especially in school, since I look like an idiot there even when people aren't taking pictures of me.
 
3. Only a month left to the Killers! Well, 29 days today, but YAYUS. I am so psyched! Haven't seen then live since '09! Picture here aren't mine either, it's what came up when I googled them for a background to my countdown.
 
My spare time is pretty fully booked for the upcoming week, so blogging might be a bit slow. But I have my extreme-hair-makeover planned for sunday, so I'll probably put something up around then! Cheerio, bitches!
 
Also, I have a new phone number, so if you know me irl, and haven't been invited to my "nytt nummer"-event, then message me on fb, so I can give it to you!
