129. Closet cleaning!

Oh hai!

I complain so much about my closet spewing out junk that I thought today, Wtheck. Let's really clean this mess up.

So I did.
And now, I am so proud of myself I want to go hug myself.

I found things to throw, things to sell, things to donate, things that I just want to burn because I don't know what prompt me to buy it, and some things that definitely do not belong to me.

So yeah. That was my day today.

Now, I found some things I might want to "sell" on my "Blogshop" so, I guess that is partly exciting? I think I might update that page tomorrow!

Okay, got nothing more to say for now, got to get dress for Magnar's Halloween meet? I know it is not a Costume Party or anything, but what if I wanted to come as something awesome? Hrmph.

But this Russel Peter's is hilariously good. (I refuse to admit that it is kind of true...)
Watch it for a good Saturday laugh!

I am ranting now, but isn't that what I always do anyways?

128. Pillow talk

I am generally a truly happy person, the people around me have given me the luxury of not needing to worry about much else, which I am fully grateful for. So sometimes I thing my biggest problem isn't too big after all if I compare myself to many out there.

But I came to realize yesterday that my biggest issue in life is and truly is, myself. Well, I realize that a long time ago, I just choose to ignore them and kept telling myself that I am not wrong for wanting that.

I am a perfectionist and I seek the ultimate perfection. And sometimes, nothing less than perfect will do. Perfection that I have gathered in my mind over the years and from readings and looking, feeling, wanting, etc, etc.

And worse of all being me, is that once I realize that that illusion of the perfection I am seeing is made up of my own delusions and is starting to crumble down on me, I have a hard time accepting that. I don't know where to run, who to hide behind. It is almost impossible to put my hands around it and grasp that new knowledge and I am left stumbling wondering what now? Years of gathered information has all just turned into nothing-ness.

And as I said above, to begin with my ideas' were made up by myself. Or at least I have hoped that was what it is. And everyone in this world has already learnt the reality of things and couldn't possibly understand why am I feeling this way.

I like to believe perfection is possible, we just have to push harder, seek further, look deeper. At at one point of it, I am sure we will get there. Is that really too much to ask for?

Is that really too much to ask for?

Guess, I should go now. Got to reprogram my head about something new. It is not that new found knowledge is bad or anything, it is just not what is in my head and now I have to reprogram myself onto accepting something new.

Loads of happy picture, just as a distraction. :)

127. Photobooth moments

Just finished The Return by Victoria Hislop
Rather good book, what should I read next?

Must say, the lighting in my school is quite good, No?

Face you get when given not good tasting Ice Mocca. When will Norwegian stores learn to make good Starbucks-like Ice Coffee's?

I knew my Yellow Heart would match something sometime!

Follow me on Twitter!

Got assignments to do today, guess I will just have to blog later, that is why you should follow me on Twitter and watch me procrastinate! :)

126. Oh Micheal.

Micheal Bublé is definitely one of my vice. I usually find me winding up listening to him on a moody bad day or even when I am happy happy!
So yeah. Micheal, why do you do this to me?

You just got me mushy all inside. *Sigh.

I should be sleeping. Or doing work, not listening to you and getting all emotional.

So, what is the song you tune too when you are feeling happy?

Michael Buble - Haven't Met You Yet Lyrics

I'm Not Surprised
Not Everything Lasts
Have Broken My Heart So Many Times,
I Stopped Keepin Track.
Talk Myself In
I Talk Myself Out
I Get All Worked Up
Then I Let Myself Down.

I Tried So Very Hard Not To Lose It
I Came Up With A Million Excuses
I Thought I Thought Of Every Possibility

And I Now Someday That It'll All Turn Out
You'll Make Me Work So We Can Work To Work It Out
And I Promise You Kid That I'll Give So Much More Than I Get
I Just Haven't Met You Yet

Mmmmm ....

I Might Have To Wait
I'll Never Give Up
I Guess It's Half Time
And The Other Half's Luck
Wherever You Are
Whenever It's Right
You Come Out Of Nowhere And Into My Life

And I Know That We Can Be So Amazing
And Baby Your Love Is Gonna Change Me
And Now I Can See Every Possibility

Hmmmmm ....

And Somehow I Know That Will All Turn Out
And You'll Make Me Work So We Can Work To Work It Out
And I Promise You Kid I'll Give So Much More Than I Get
I Just Haven't Met You Yet

They Say All's Fair
And In Love And War
But I Won't Need To Fight It
We'll Get It By It ??
To Be United

And I Know That We Can Be So Amazing
And Being In Your Life Is Gonna Change Me
And Now I Can See Every Single Possibility

Hmmm ...

And Someday I Know It'll All Turn Out
And I'll Work To Work It Out
Promise You Kid I'll Give More Than I Get
Than I Get Than I Get han I Get

Oh You Know It Will All Turn Out
And You'll Make Me Work So We Can Work To Work It Out
And I Promise You Kid To Give So Much More Than I Get
Yeah I Just Haven't Met You Yet

I Just Haven't Met You Yet
Oh Promise You Kid
To Give So Much More Than I Get

I Said Love Love Love Love Love Love Love ...
I Just Haven't Met You Yet
Love Love Love .....
I Just Haven't Met You Yet

125. Oh how I miss you.

Oh how I miss you my darling camera. It really is about time I go get myself a new one. I am reading loads of reviews and I still can't decide DSLR or Compact?

Pictures from yesterday and today! Magnar pulled a Lisa stunt and left his camera here, so I ransacked the house and found a cable! And ta-dah! Pictures!

Spot the difference? Does the Pepsi really make the picture uglier?

My carbonara pasta with bacon bits!

One of them is Coke, the other Pepsi. Can you guess which is which?

I look like such a working woman. So unglamorous.

My lunch today! Salads with all my favorite things!

Then I got bored and proceeded onto making some meringue!
Super easy to make and super yummy. *CoughFattenningCough*

Since I ate up all my Double Cream yesterday, I was left with using Marshmellow Fluff as my center. Then I found some dried coconuts and sprinkled that over as well! :)

Okay, I love cooking, I hate admitting that, but I actually enjoy doing it.
I like simple things, nothing too fancy.

Now, if only cooking doesn't involve cleaning up afterwards, I would be cooking all day long! :)

I shall drop the recipe for these on my next post?

124. Sunday Morning

So, yesterday marked the end of my home alone spree.
I had an absolutely fantastic time with Magnar.

Although the day started out with me having to take a bus to Lillestrøm. And I hate busses. Period.
Anyways, I made Carbonara Pasta with bacon bits and some Salad. :)

The Carbonara was rather good, only next time I shall actually have salt in it.
And for the Salad, I need to learn to make some good dressing eventually.
*Emphasize, I

Then we watched Aeon Flux and Wall-e.
Talked about a lot of random shizz. From end of the world, to infidelity to a bunch of rubbish!

Then it was almost 1 am and Magnar had to go home.
See, because life is a journey. On the way home, Magnar met a burning car.
*News tip and picture taken by Magnar himself. Haha!

I don't exactly have all the details as I forgot my phone in Lillestrøm (yet again) and thus have got no contact with the outside world.
But once I get the specifics right, I'll tell you! :)

123. Removing nail polish, options

Home made French Manicure, baby!

Anyways, I posted up a question on Facebook earlier today asking about how to remove nail polish without using nail polish remover.
But, there was no takers on that question. :/

But, because I was desperate I googled it and tried the following options.

Alcohol : Doesn't work. Being at home, I obviously have got a supply of alcohol lying about, I took a bottle of Chivas Regal and tried it.

Turpentine : Doesn't work. Well, I freaked out once my hands felt funkydoodle.

White spirit : Worked. Only I also freaked out, and stopped after half a nail.

(Both the ideas above caused a minor heart attack and left me fumbling for nail creme afterwards. Don't try it at home, unless you are a dude)

Fingers : Worked. The safer option. Just took painstakingly long.

Painting another layer on top then rubbing it off : Worked, but stupid idea, end up making more mess than when I began.

So, eventually I ransacked the house and found drops of leftover nail polish remover and used that instead.

There lesson for the day : Nail polish is to be removed by nail polish remover. Period.

Song recommendation for today :) ♥
The acoustic version is much better.

Motion City Soundtrack, Fell In Love Without You (Acoustic version)

121. False lashes

False lashes.
I got mine from H&M for 40 NOK? Maybe it was 50 NOK?

Maybe that could be the first thing I sell on my Blogshop?
I wonder if any of you Malaysian kiddos could be interested?

Now, I can see why false lashes are making such a comeback!
I have never worn one, as I fail to see the fuss... But Omgwtfbbqdvd!

I still haven't figured out how to attach them without them falling off every 4 minutes. But I assume with practice, I might do okay!

Now, another thing that I am amazed by is the effects of a proper coat of mascara!
Have I already ranted about it?

Since I wear mascara on an almost daily basis, I fail to see a difference until I took a picture. :) And phwoarrrr!

The effects of mascara
I use Estee Lauder's Lash XL :)

So, now when a girl says she need over an hour to get dress, you should know why.
Can you see the difference?

Now, my aunt has left with the hairdryer. *Sigh.
I had this brilliant voluming plan!

Au Natural.

119. Bags!

Oh why are gorgeous things so expensive?

I came to realize, if you cannot afford to waste money on a new bag, but seriously-desperately-want it kinda thing.

Go have a visual orgasm on their wallets or clutches instead. :)
At least then you know, if you reallllllllly want it (and will die if you do not have it), you can go get it and not have to starve for a month! :)
Ahhhhh, died.

Examples today presented to you by Marc by Marc Jacobs :)
My current obsession. *smitten

118. Not weekend again

Aww :)
Oh well, its Monday now.
Where did my weekend go? Hrmph.

On Saturday I had the Munchkin over and we watched Pulp Fiction! (well, watched halfway anyway) :)
It's nice that Magnar now comes over on weekends! So, my excessive going over to Lillestrøm is somewhat more "balanced". And the fact that I always have loads of fun! Guess that's the ultimate goal?

Yesterday, I was actually out and about collecting donation for the Norwegian TV auction! It's basically a Norwegian thing where all household donates to a cause. This year's cause was CARE

Then, Magnar and I watched Mamma Mia! I have actually never watched that movie until yesterday! So, that was nice.

Guess that is all I did last weekend?

Dinner at the Hjelmstad's! Sudden cravings for this. Why?

The little birdy I made! I call it, happy birdy!
(Yes, I just got out of bed, stop whining!)

But, I realize now... Guess my weekends aren't too bad anyways.

Catch you guys later!

117. Weekend again!

It is crazy to sometimes think and realize, Oh Goodness!
Look, it's Friday again.

Friday is always a little bit bittersweet. A bit of, "Oh, what have I achieved this week?" and "Weekeeeeeeend!"

I was going to blog about me "Secret Project", but that has come to a halt for a while. Thus, I shall blog about some superficial frivolous things instead!

So, help me choose a stunning dress for the upcoming Christmas parties. You want me to look good don't youuuuu? And since I am living on such a tight budget, these are the ones I can afford.

Ignore where the dresses are from, tell me what would you rate these dresses + shoes? I can reveal where they are from later!
Are you ready?


Dresses 3 and 4, 5 and 6 are coming up as we go along!

Oklah, lazy already. So tempted to put in an Oscar de la Renta dress, but don't want to put false hope (to myself).

But by damn, cannot resist. And I had to pair it with a pair of Louboutins too!

Anyways, battle of the dresses, round one!
Cast your vote!

116. Secret Project

Now, you know when you are inspired, nothing can stop you! That was what I felt yesterday with my "Secret Project", till it screwed me over. But never mind that, I am determined!

I can't reveal it yet, but in due time, I shall!
Later today probably, or once I get my logistics about it correct.

Here is a hint : It does involve yarns and knitting needles, and no, I am not going to poke someone eyes out and then wrap them in wool.

Catch you guys later!
