Day XIII - An outfit you wish you had
Basically I just want the Evil Queen Regina's closet. I'm gonna dress only like her, once my Super Kingdom of Awesomeness is recognised as a real country. True Story.
Day XI - A piece of jewelry that a Grandparent gave you
My grandmother on my dad's side gave me this. It's a heart of marble and a handmade chain. I love it very much, but I've already broken it (you can see it's missing a tiny piece at the bottom of the heart), so I'm afraid to wear it and ruin it more. I mean, what if I rip the chain? I'd feel so bad about it. But maybe it has to be worth the chance. It doesn't deserve to be but away in this tiny box (that my mum bought for me when I finished reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban on my own for the first time).
Didn't think I'd make it with the challenge today, but here we go, five minutes to midnight! Good work, me!
Day X - An outfit you wore on a special day
This is what I wore to Lady Gaga in Copenhagen on September 2nd. Not my greatest accomplishment, but it was comfortable throughout the day and the concert and edgy enough for the occasion. And a tiny bit inspired by the Marry The Night video.
Day IX - A cute dress/skirt
I've got a lot of cute dresses, so to refrain from having to choose among them, I decided to show you this new dress that I got from H&M. I've been eyeing it since it came in store, which I think was early summer, but I thought it to expensive for my at the time lack-of-money-situation. BUT BEHOLD, the other day I found it on sale for 100 SEK, not in my size but never the less, and with some further fortunate discount I got it for half of that. It's a size M, and I should have had a S och XS given the choice, but it's jersey fabric and (supposed to be) figure fitting, so it's easy as pie to take in and shorten. Just gonna have to get around doing it. Maybe tomorrow, I've got some other sewing tasks stocked up that I need to deal with anyway. But there you go, a cute dress of mine.
Day VIII - Your most expensive article of clothing
Quite honestly, I don't own any expensive clothes. I'm a quantity before quality kinda girl. I like to be able to have a different outfit every day. And as a student, with grants and a not-on-regular-basis part time job as the only income, there's just no way of doing that and pay 300SEK for a t-shirt or 1500 for a pair of jeans. I don't think I have ever payed over maybe 600-700 SEK for any garment. If I have anything more expensive, it's been a gift.
The only exception is shoes. My Jeffrey Campbell shoes in particular. I payed for all of them myself, and it's the only thing I let myself indulge in. I think that's fair, since I don't pay very much for anything else I buy. Don't you? I never even dreamed of that I would own a pair of JCs. Now I have four. I was so excited when I got the first pair, my Tardys in November last year, and I was still equally excited when I was unboxing the Lita Spikes three days ago.
I made this video of my little collection, instead of just posting pictures, to spice this challenge up a bit. I like editing in iMovie, I should make more videos. I should get someone to film outfit videos for me. Wouldn't that be fun? But again, there's the returning problem of me feeling super awkward in front of a video camera. I can never escape! Anyway, watch me stroll about by my living room wall. Go ahead, do it!
Day VII - A cute outfit of yours
Check it out guys! It's a baby pink rain coat! Does it get any cuter? I'm using this as the challenge post for now, in case I don't get to take any whole outfit photos. If I do, I'll just switch and keep this as just a cute-rain-coat-post. I'm kinda sad, because I used to have a baby pink trench coat, but I ruined it a while ago, while thinking I could "fix it up". Hoping that maybe I can save it. Baby pink clothes is like the definition of cute. That, kittens and babies that doesn't cry.
And if you're wondering why my one eye looks weirdly smaller than the other it's because it swelled up over night, and I kinda looked like someone punched me in the face. It's gone down a bit now, but it's still bothering me, itching and burning. 'Cause that's what I get for using eyeliner and mascara. Not doing it again until it's completely back to normal, I'll tell you that.
And another crazy thing: You know the gif of me in my new Lita Spike that I posted the other day? It's got like 2700+ notes on tumblr right now. Cute how so many people who like to watch me wave my legs about awkwardly in front of the webcamera.
Gotta go now, have a nice Saturday!
Day VI - A pair of pants that aren’t jeans
These are like... leggins-pants. They're like leggings, but they're made as pants. with a zipper and back and front pockets and the whole deal. Kind of the opposite-but-not-really from the jeans in the last post. I like them, but they're low cut, so I don't use them much. Low cuts tend to kinda slide down and want to fall off. Anyway, I don't use pants that much either way.
Day V - Your favourite pair of jeans
These are the Dr Denim Plenty. They are pretty much the perfect black jeans. It's like wearing leggnings, but it's actually pants! In denim! You can get them in a low waisted model as well, and that one is called Kissy. But I prefer a high waist. Their only flaw is that they lack pockets in the front. But you know, I wear tights otherwise so I'm kinda used to not having front pockets. I'm probably gonna end up getting more of these in other colours at some point.
Day IV - A shirt that you haven’t worn yet
This is a crochet top from Jennifer. I think I bought this in '06. So I've had it for six years but I am yet to wear it. I like it a lot though, but it's quite hard to wear and match, with the halterneck, see-through-ness and bright colours. But someday...!
Day III - A piece of clothing or jewelry that was a gift
People rarely give me clothes or jewelry. And when they do it's quite often things I don't really like. I honestly don't know how they manage. Anyway, Sara gave me this necklace a few years ago. It was my first rosary and I had really wanted one for a while, but hadn't been able to get hold of it. I think she got it an amusement park or something. This was before you could buy them in every other clothes/accessory store. Then they became kinda trendy and now I've got loads from various places. But yeah, this was my first and it was a gift, so there you go.
Day II - Your favourite shirt
I don't really have a favourite shirt, so I figured I'd take this as an opportunity to honour this crop top that I really like but probably left behind on Mallorca. It's lost anyway. Maybe it'll turn up one day. We can hope.
Day I - Your closet
The problem with my flat is that it's not really a flat, it's the upstairs of a two-story villa. A tiny villa. So whilst it's a super nice flat to live in all alone for free, it's not very convieniently planned. There's a terribly low ceiling, and sloping roof everywhere, which makes it hard to put in furniture, esprecially proper closets. So this is basically what I live in. Clothes on more or less display everywhere. Not that I mind, really. I have a "walk-in closet" (see the door with the loli-dress hanging on it), where I store things that I don't want on display for various reasons. The reason I quotation-mark walk-in closet is because you can't really walk around in it, because there's both extremely low ceiling AND sloping roof, but it's a room, never the less. Not gonna show you what it looks like inside, because there's just a lot of questionable storing going on in there.
Outerwear that's out of season, like my fake-fur coats and stuff, are in a closet at the bottom floor, along with all of my flat shoes.
I REALLY need to clear out my shit and sell stuff. Maybe I should take a weekend someday soon and do it. But I probably won't and it's gonna be hell when I move away from here someday. But there you go, my closet(s).

What do you imagine your life like at age fifty?
Nr. 9 from untitled (cropped).
How do I imagine my life 30 years from now? The basics really. A family of my own, a nice house and a job that I love. The only thing I really want is to feel that I have accomplished something. Just as much as I want someone to make me happy I want to have made myself happy. And if everything goes like I have it planned in my head, then I'm going to be a very happy person at the age of fifty.
Do you wish for anything at 11:11? If so, what do you wish for? Has anything ever come true?
I do, and I've been wishing for the same thing every time for the past year. I'm not going to tell you though. It's one of those secrets I wouldn't share with anyone. I guess you could say it has part come true though, but not in the way I originally wished.
If you could choose to live forever, would you? Why or why not?
Honestly, yes. Yes I would. Because one thing I am terribly afraid of is life being to short. To not have enough time. In all the fantasy worlds in my head I am always imortal. I have always been. It's the one constant thing. I always have eternity. As painful as it must be to never die, if I was given the choice today, I would without a doubt choose to live forever.
Which do you prefer: films or television? Why?
Television obviously. Because there is no Doctor Who och Ashes To Ashes film.
And the latest episode of DW was just AASDSAFHDVHVBJSBDFJV!!!!!11!!!1111!!!!oneone (le Doctor/River-ship!)

Choose two: mentally stable, intelligent, attractive. Explain why you chose those two.
(Alex Drake, a person who is as far from mentally stable as you can possibly be.)
Intelligent and attractive. Mostly because I don't believe that there is such a thing as being mentally stable. Awful bore one must be for that... I am most certainly not mentally stable. What is it even? How the hell are you mentally stable? This is a ridiculous question.
Would you rather date someone plain with an amazing personality or someone beautiful with a plain personality?
They would bloody NEED that amazing personality to want tp put up with me and my friday night streamings of various TV-shows (Torchwood this friday night I'm all set). Anyway, it's common knowledge that an amazing personality shines through. The way you see someone changes after how you feel about them. I learned that the hard way (it's a long story that I won't tell you). Beautiful on the inside=beautiful on the outside. Cheesey but very true. Now, back ro Torchwood.
How attractive do you consider yourself?
God, this is awkward. This is not something I'm very comfortable talking about. I guess I like the way I look, most days I think I'm pretty. But I don't think I'd be attracted to myself if I was someone else, if you know what I mean. Or maybe I would. I have no idea. But I guess since personality is a part of what makes you attractive, I don't think I am very attractive to a lot of people, because I'm too odd and cold or shy. I'm not very talkative. Tyra Banks would probably say that I have no personality (if only she knew). I think it takes someone like me to want to be with me, in the long run. Or something. I think I've strayed a bit from the subject now. Suppose the short answer is that I don't consider myself very attractive, but I do think I look good. Which can be two very different things.
