Nada Surf - Always Love

To make a mountain of your life
Is just a choice
But I never learned enough
To listen to the voice that told me...
Always love…hate will get you every time
Always love…hate will get you…

Ben & Jerry's Tour

2012-06-27, at 20:35:12
 
JamJam and I happened to be in Turku on exactly the right day today, since they were handing out free Ben & Jerry's ice-creams. YumYum!

Apparently they were filming people there, and there was a guy standing right behind us that had a camera on his head (yes, on his head, it was strapped to his forehead,) but I think it's a small price to pay for free Ben & Jerry's!
 
 
Aaand here's a picture of me today.

The Avengers

2012-06-27, at 17:24:09
 
About a gazillion years after everyone else, I decided to go and watch The Avengers with my friend JamJam..

I can't get over how fudging awesome this movie is! It's.. gah.. there are no words! No words!
Well, there's one word.. epic!
 

And I love Iron Man even more now. <3
 
Steve Rogers: Big man in a suit of armour. Take that off, what are you?
Tony Stark: Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.
Steve Rogers: I know guys with none of that worth ten of you. I've seen the footage. The only thing you really fight for is yourself. You're not the guy to make the sacrifice play, to lay down on a wire and let the other guy crawl over you.
Tony Stark: I think I would just cut the wire.
Steve Rogers: Always a way out... You know, you may not be a threat, but you better stop pretending to be a hero.
Tony Stark: A hero? Like you?... You're a lab rat, Rogers. Everything that you are came out of a bottle!
Steve Rogers: Put on the suit. Let's have it out.
 
 
 
But there wasn't a way out, and he was willing to sacrifice himself..
 
Jarvis: Sir, you realize this is a one-way trip?
Tony Stark: Pleasure working with you, JARVIS.
 
I like how they showed the world that Iron Man does have a heart.
 
(I also loved Thor's hair, it looked so fluffy :3)

Saw this guy on Graham Norton, and fell completely in love with him!
His voice is magical, and this song is just so utterly wonderful! <3

Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts..

2012-06-21, at 21:23:35
 

Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts,
Teach us something please,
Whether we be old and bald,
Or young with scabby knees
Our heads could do with filling,
With some interesting stuff,
For now they're bare and full of air,
Dead flies and bits of fluff,
So teach us things worth knowing,
Bring back what we've forgot,
Just do your best, we'll do the rest,
And learn until our brains all rot.


 

 

This lovely hoodie is on it's way home to me now, for just 45,12€ (shipping included)!
From redbubble.com, it's a site whith a gazillion different prints, and then you get to decide the model of your shirt.
Since my Michael Jackson hoodie is barely holding it together (and I've never really been that big of a MJ fan after all..), I decided it's time I get myself a nice, new, oversize hoodie.

At the same time, I get to show the world I'm a Potterhead, and proud!

Naildesign: Back to Basic

2012-06-20, at 20:23:47
 
To call this a "naildesign" isn't really fair, because it's not a design. It's just plain polish.
Anyway, my mum has been nagging me about my nails being too long, so I decided to cut them.
I hate, hate, hate having short nails though..
 
The nailpolish is from MNY, and if you just use a coat or two it can pass as a plain nude colour, but with more coats you can really see the pink in it and it becomes more of a pastel pink.
Perfect for summer!

It's written in the Chocolate Frogs

2012-06-20, at 17:45:00
A Rose/Scorpius HC.

It was Rose's Fifth Year at Hogwarts, so she should have been used to being away from home by now. Hogwarts was her second home! But still had moments when she would just lie on her bed and cry all day because of how much she missed her mum and dad. Especially her dad.

This was one of those days. She had been lying on her bed for hours already, and all her friends could do was to hover around in case she needed them.
Then suddenly a girl from Sixth Year popped her head into their dormitory and asked, "Is Rose Weasley here? There's a pale, blonde Slytherin boy looking for you at the portrait hole."
Rose lifted her head up from her soaked pillow and looked at the girl, "Scorpius?" she croaked.
"Uhm, now that you mention it, he probably is that Malfoy boy, yeah," and then she disappeared.
Rose could feel her friends' eyes on her as she stood up on her unsteady legs, wiped the tears from her cheeks and walked out of the dormitory.

When she got down to the Common Room, she could indeed see Scorpius Malfoy arguing with the Fat Lady.
Rose thought it looked like he wanted to draw his wand and curse her, but he was holding at least a dozen Chocolate Frogs, so there was nothing he could do.
He seemed to sense her presence though, because suddenly he looked away from the painting and straight at her instead, and his eyes instantly lit up and a small smile played on his lips. Rose could feel her cheeks burning as she crossed the room in just a few leaps and flung her arms around his neck.
Scorpius laughed softly as some of the Chocolate Frogs fell out of his arms and onto the stone floor. Rose picked them up and then she dragged him inside, yelling "He's ok" to the Fat Lady.
"I heard my fair Lady was feeling a bit down," he said with a bow, as he dumped the Chocolate Frogs onto the Common Room sofa.

Rose was still feeling upset, so she buried her face in the crook of Scorpius' neck while he stroked her back.
"Are you feeling homesick again?" he asked, his voice full of concern.
Rose nodded sighed against his neck, his platinum blonde hair just reaching down to tickle her face.
"Aww.. Well, as you might have noticed, I brought you some Chocolate Frogs to cheer you up." Scorpius gave Rose a small kiss on the top of her head.
Rose giggled, sat down on the sofa and started unwrapping a chocolate frog, after she threw one at Scorpius who followed her lead. The shrill voice of the Fat Lady could still be heard through the portrait, "A Slytherin! In MY common room! It's a an outrage! It's a scandal!"

Scorpius finished unwrapping his Chocolate Frog first, and loudly exclaimed, "I got your Uncle Harry!" as he looked at the card where the small figure smiled at him.
"And I got my dad," Rose smiled, tears in her eyes, as Scorpius handed over his card.
She also happened to get a card with her mum, a card with her Aunt Ginny, a card with her Uncle Fred and a card with her grandma Molly.

When she said goodbye to Scorpius that night, getting a last kiss goodnight and many jealous looks by her fellow Gryffindors, she felt happier than she had felt in months.
And as she lay in bed that night, still with a warm feeling in her stomach after all the chocolate, she had almost her whole family there with her on her bedside table.

The last thing she did before she fell asleep, was to take out a Chocolate Frog card from her drawer. On the card was a sleeping Draco Malfoy, and she gently whispered "Thankyou," before she put it back in the drawer.
She couldn't imagine a life where Draco Malfoy hadn't accepted her relationship with Scorpius.

When friends betray you, family remains. <3

2012-06-19, at 21:58:11
 
Just had a lovely time at our summerplace with some of my Swedish relatives and some of my Finnish relatives.
Lots of food, lots of love and LOTS of laughter!
Also a lot of sneaky photographing of the others (my second picture wasn't quite as sneaky as I wanted it to be), and a lot of strangling my cousin while she was trying to upload a picture on me on Instagram, haha.

I didn't get a picture of my second cousin and his fiancée, which is a shame really. They were kinda cute together. :3
 
Have I mentioned that I absolutely love my family? Or at least my dad's side of the family.
Sure, we mock eachother sometimes, but we do it with love.
And my cousin (the victim hiding behind her hand on the second photograph) feels like a bit of a sister to me sometimes, because we're always fighting and teasing eachother.
So if any one of you are reading this right now, I love you! <3

Some things, are meant to be

2012-06-14, at 18:47:23



I'm currently writing a Sherlock fanfiction based loosely upon ths video, more the song actually.
I'm scared though, because Sherlock is a hard character to deal with, and I really want to do him justice..

Hair

2012-06-14, at 12:50:53



The second picture was actually the result of the third picture.
I'm currently thinking about dipdying my hair with bleach, so it'd be yellow which fades into orange, which then fades into my red hair. I just have to make sure mum's ok with it first. :F

Ode to a Nightingale

2012-06-13, at 23:33:12



Because I can't find any words to describe what this does to me, I will cite some of my favourite comments on the video:

"could someone lend me a mop? "


"BAM! And now I'm pregnant"

"Someone help
peel me off my bedroom floor because I don't want to move anywhere I just want to listen to this forever"

"Suddenly, the boy I'm tutoring is burning to learn the proper pronounciation of the 'th'.
And he became gay probably. What I could understand."

"I've never heard anything this amazing in my entire life. -eargasm-
"

"I just melted."

"Listening to this is really calming, I've got a exam tomorrow and this is stoping me freaking out."

"I kind of feel bad for the rest of the men, they clearly stand no chance in hell"



Congratulations, Benedict Cumberbatch, you successfully managed to get me interested in poetry.
..As long as it's read by you..

You also insured me a good night's sleep.


Was it a vision, or a waking dream?
Fled is that music: -- Do I wake or sleep?

To sink, or to swim?

2012-06-13, at 22:03:28
We agreed, long ago, that we're connected, in a way.
When you're happy, I'm happy.
When you're down, I'm down.

I don't want to get dragged down into your sadness, but what else can I do?
I jump after you, and try to keep us both afloat.

The problem is, I've never been very good at swimming.

Fish are jumping, and the cotton is high

2012-06-13, at 20:15:00



This is the dress that I made myself this spring, and it's actually way too big for me, but meh. I like it anyway!
And the shoes are the ones I used on my graduation too.
Although I really don't like the shoes, but maybe that's just because I'm so used to my Jeffrey Campbells, because the platforms of these shoes aren't as high as the ones on my JC's, and it's quite round too, which means you easily fall forward or to the sides.
And the heels don't feel steady at all, despite being really thick.

Sometimes it really is worth the money, to pay 100-200€ for shoes instead of 40-60€.

Graduation nails x 3

2012-06-02, at 17:58:23


I wanted to try a one-stroke technique, and figured normal acrylic paint would work. Well, it did, until I applied a topcoat (it'd wash off as soon as it comes in contact with water otherwise) and the purple turned.. Well, some kind of yellow-ish green. And the white turned hot pink. Whoops?
I was going to paint this on Emilia's nails, but now I'm glad I tested it on myself first.



These are the nails I spontaneously decided to paint for Emilia, they're supposed to be flowers but I'm not sure if they're very flower-like..



And here are my own graduation nails, a simple, french manicure in a fresh pink colour!
