MOVING MY BLOG
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!
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.
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.
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?
Here's a picture of me, dreaming of a life with a mobile phone with a 8mpix camera and instagram. Sorry I'm not sorry. Soon, though, soooon. And if you're wondering is I wear this shirt all the time now, the answer is no, I don't. I want to though. If I pay 500SEK for a knitted sweater I'm gonna bloody well use it 'til it falls apart.
I know I've written this on pretty much every platform I'm on soon, but I just... don't know how to deal with it and I just want to share this very weird moment in my life with as many as I can, because, well, just, really? I was grocery shopping, and I was just casually about to pay for my shit, you know, all kinds of grocery store stuff, like diet coke, crisps, frozen pizza, etc, etc. Nothing strange at all. But then the cashier was unable to scan one of my items, so she asked me, very seriously:
'Is it really from here?'
At the time I didn't quite realise how absurd this question was, but after a few minutes it kicked in. Did she honestly think, even for just a second, that I brought this item with me from another store and then tried to pay for it again? I don't even know.
Gonna watch all the Helen/Nikki scenes from Bad Girls tonight. Then maybe consider actually watching the rest of the show. But you know, Helen is played by Simone Lahbib who also plays my baby Alex in Wire in the Blood (maybe I should rewatch that for the, like, maybe fifth time?), and Mandana Jones who plays Nikki is just so pretty, I can't help myself. I'm a shipper. I ship anything. How can I not ship my baby Alex and a hot girl? Still sorry I'm not sorry.
As you may or may not know or have figured out, my dearly beloved iPhone 4 as passed away. It appears they don't teach them how to swim in the store before you buy them. I have never in my life before broken an electric device by my own fault. I dropped it in water and eventually I ended up unable to charge it. I tried switching the battery, and I had it brought in to be checked out by professionals, but they were unable to fix it. So now it's dead. Thankfully it still worked as usual until the battery died, so was able to back-up it. Here are some pictures I had saved on it, that I never posted here.
I'm getting a new iPhone on Monday or Tuesday, but right now I'm using my old Sony Ericsson W595. It's kinda nice in a way, to not have a smartphone again. I wouldn't be that bothered without it, but it really is a hastle not to have one these days. You can't check your e-mail at anytime, transfer money, check when to take the bus, and soon I won't be able to buy bus tickets either, because it requires an app (which is something that is very inconvienient not to be able to do when you live over 10km from your school). It's so silly really, because people used to be able to live just fine without all of this, but now people expect you to be able to do it. And I'm used to it too. I love working with good technology, since it's such a big part of my life (and we all know once you go Mac you never go back). I hate not being able to log onto my blog any time I like, or taking "quality" photos whenever. These days it's limiting, not to able to do so. And as silly as I feel paying shitloads of money for a new iphone, because I fucking broke my last one (don't think I'm not beating the shit out of myself over this), it's not just a new phone I'm getting. I have a phone in my W595. No, It's a gadget to make everyday life easier, and sometimes also more fun. And you would all be very sad without my Instagram pictures, wouldn't you?!
I wish I could have fluffy, crimped curly hair everyday. Flat hair is just so lame when you can't be bothered with styling. I also wish my face was like this without me having to put make up on. Hard fucking life. I also never plan on stop wearing these jeans. I'm gonna fix all these three things by learning magic.
It's friday, friday, gotta get down on friday. Tonight is the last episode ever of Fringe. My baby Alt-Livia is coming back and I'm already crying over this. Luckily I have watched my make up of.
Old School, Old School
My iPhone is on vacation because of reasons, and I'm using my old mobile at the moment. I found some pictures on it from secondary school and felt like sharing. And also, first picture is my face/look/whatever today. Notice the long hair, and my new badass jeans that are the same as my other favourite pair from Dr Denim, but with an even higher waist. The model is called Solitaire.
The other pictures are 1. Amanda, Mimmi and I riding in our teacher's car because of reasons. 2. For graduation we all wrote our names on this sheet, and I figured it was a good idea to do the Fringe-six-finger-hand-print, and also leave my finger prints. 3. Sanna and I at Stadium, a shop that I hate so I have no idea why we were even there. Also, notice that the phone I'm taking the picture with is not the same as the one I found it on. 4. After I graduated, this piece of paper was on the table that was my favourite spot in school, for a couple of weeks. And no, I didn't put it there, my teacher did! Then, when this was taken down (and given to me, I still have it!), another one was taped under the table. Last time I checked it was still there, but that was ages ago now, might be gone. Coolio, anyways.
Today was the last day of our term, and on Monday the new term starts. Wish I was more excited about it though. Still haven't recovered fully from last term and all it's crazyness of d00m. Malmö University plays but a funny set of rules. Anyhow, my point is that I have tomorrow off and I'm gonna sleep 'til 5ever.
That's all, ladies and gents. I with you all a very neat evening!
Unif Gwen Skirt from Famous Ape
Dress from H&M
Skull scarf from Ebay, the other two from H&M
Jeffrey Campbell Everest from Dope.
I forgot to photograph my Boy tee and my hat, but you've seen them already anyway. Got the tee of Ebay and the hat from H&M. I am so skilled at getting my fav brands on sale. I got both the Unif skirt (seriously can't wait to wear it!), my new JCs and the Boy shirt at really great deals.
If you live in, or nearby, Malmö, you should check out Famous Ape by Davidshall, because they sell real cool clothes and shoes, like Unif and the more edgy models of Jeffrey Campbell. I was in there yesterday with Malvina, because I had seen a dress that I was pretty sure was from Unif in the window, and I wanted to check out if it really was. And the giant blinking SALE sign in the window were also a bit alluring. Turned out it really was Unif, and not only did they sell the brand, but they had pieces on sale! And there was I, all ecstatic that I was even touching Unif clothes. So I got the Gwen skirt for 300SEK, and it was 40% of in the shop, which makes the full price actually cheaper than it is on some US websites. Unfortunatley they don't sell any Unif shoes, because I would have died to get to try on a pair of Hellbounds. Anyway, you should all start shopping there, because they don't have the best location, and it's easy to miss or forget about, and I would just hate it if they had to close or something, now that I've found it!
I'm reviewing the Litas I got before christmas probably today, and then the Everests someday soon. Promise.
I haven't taken any photos today, or done anything at all really, because I'm a lazy ass mf. But I felt like blogging, and I hate text-only-posts, so here's a lousy webcam shot of me wearing sunglasses indoors on a cold and dark Janurary evening. Nothing strange at all.
When I wear this sweater you can't see where my hair ends and I can pretend it's really long. My highlights are currently blue, because I bleached the roots of them, and some streaks turned bleach-yellow, and bleach-yellow makes me feel gross. My great plan is to condition the shit out of them when I wash my hair so the blue fades really fast and it will be greyish again.
I watched the Blind Side (the one with Sandra Bullock) today, and cried. It was so sweet. Not usually my type of movie, but for some reason I got into my head that I was gonna watch it, so I did, and it was great. I even liked it on facebook, and I don't like liking things on facebook, especially things that I don't want to weridly pop up among my "interests" and be followed by awkwardness (once it said that my interest were Peter Petrelli from Heroes, and just NO). Oh my, better check so it hasn't ended up some place strange right now (update: no worries, it safely among favourite movies). Anywa-hay, I had my fair share of tears this morning so I'm gonna round of today with Miss Congeniality, because I have a Sandra Bullock thing going on since Two Weeks Notice was on telly over xmas.
Also, I walked over 5km today in my new Dr Martens, and only got one blister! Good job me and my weird feet!
But never mind. I have important things to do now. I have to decide what to have for dinner! Cheerio!
When I let the water take me
I'm back, you guys! And you have no idea how happy I am to be so. Basically it was kind of a shitty holiday, because I had a serious cold for most of it, and ended up a bit crazy from not leaving our two-room cabin for three whole days. I love spending time with my family, so that was great and all, but I'm not the greatest person when I'm sleep deprived and sneezing all the time.
Going shopping now, ttul!
No post on sundays
Why buy food when you can order postcards from Canada for a quite ridiculous amout of money? Now filling a purpose as wall decorations.
Once more with feeling
I'm feelin it today. Yesterday was an awful day (it began with a power cut, need I say more?), but today I've got some serious flow (jinxing the hell out if it now, though). Maybe it's a Friday thing? Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday, and all that.
I'm wearing double sweaters because it's freaking cold and my Sephora Decollete lipstick, even though it looks like my UO dolly pink in these photos. Today I ate my first Calzone pizza ever. Now you know. Fabulous life.
Outfit credits: Pucca hoodie, Bikbok tee, Dr Denim jeans, Underground boots, assorted jewelry.
I've decided upon taking an almost-break from my blog. This means that won't post very much for a while. It's not because I don't want to, I just don't have the time. Shit is gonna go down in school next week, and then I go away without internet for a week over christmas. And until then I just want to spend my free time watching TV-shows and playing The Sims 3. Besides, I don't really have anything to blog about, because all my outfits are like this one. Jeans, black tee, hoodie and boots. It's the only thing that functions both to work in at school, in the freezing weather and still looks even a little bit fancy (some days).
When fun stuff happens I'll blog about it, but the almost-everyday-check-in I probably won't. Sorry, guys!
I refuse to accept that it's snowing. I wish I could take my denial so far as to wear summer clothes, but I don't think it would be very healthy. I wear giant sunglasses so I don't get snow in my eyes, in case you were wondering.
It feels like my life is in somewhat of a loop. I'm always exhausted from school and my eyes are always red and puffy for various reasons. I try real hard to keep on blogging despite some higher power that desperatly keeps trying to make it hard for me. I want to update every day with nice outfit photos and stuff, but there really is no time. So you're just gonna have to bear with me. Studying what I study and keep a blog full time aren't really compatible at the moment. But trust me when I say I want to!
You know what sucks? I was going to see Marina & the Diamonds tomorrow and Muse next Friday. And guess what happened? Marina got moved to January (I think because of location issues) and Muse got cancelled (because Matt broke his foot). What are the odds? So no concerts for me this month... I was really looking forward to go dance like a crazy person.
Today is the Swedish championship in Taekwondo, for both of my sisters. Wish them luck!
ps. I have a necklace of tiny bones! I love it so much! ds.
This is my life atm (when I'm not at school). I'm not even joking. I'm currently working my way through Rizzoli & Isles. Kinda like it, but it's not the best I've seen. Can't wait for winter break. Less than a month to go!
Much Ado About Nothing
Guys, I can't stop crying. For real. Tears have been pouring from my eyes all morning. Why, you ask? I don't fucking know. Allergies, most probably. And I can't find the cream I usually put on my eyelids when they get dry and itch, so my face is not happy. So no make up today. Doesn't my hair look pretty sassy when it's tied up, though? I think so.
ANYHOW, I watched Much Ado About Nothing from Wyndham's Theatre in London 2011 last night. The one with David Tennant and Catherine Tate. And you know what? It was amazing. I wish I had been there to see it irl. Although it was very well filmed. You should see it. It's available online, with subtitles if you have a hard time keeping up with what they say. Although, I have to say I thought it would be harder than it was. I watched the first hour with subtitles and the rest without, and I was able to keep up. That dude Shakespeare, though. He must have been such a weird little man. Love him.
I'm going with mum and Lovisa to see the last Twilight film now. Yeah. Talk to ya laterz.
