So, today is my 26th birthday! Time flies by so fast, it feels like I turned 18 just yesterday. I have seen many posts like these and I think they are all so interesting, so I wanted to try to do one myself! Here we go;

  1. No matter what happens, time will keep moving so it’s better to look ahead than get hung up on the past.
  2. The tiny pocket in our jeans was made for pocket watches.
  3. There’s no real reason as to why the alphabet is in the order it is.
  4. Cats do in fact not have nine lives, though I believed that for many years.
  5. You can never be prepared for a break up, even if it is your decision.
  6. You can rarely trust anyone but yourself.
  7. If you are slightly colorblind when it comes to blue and yellow, playing guitar hero is really difficult.
  8. You will only be as old as you feel.
  9. It’s not really that important to have a relationship, you can do just as fine on your own.
  10. Travel whenever you can, it’s better to buy experiences.
  11. Whatever you do to others, they will do to you, whether it’s being nice or nasty.
  12. Always keep copies of important documents.
  13. Keep your receipts, you never know when you will need them or if something will need to be brought back.
  14. Never keep your phone in loose pockets.
  15. Lactic acid has nothing to do with dairy.
  16. If you speak a second language enough, you’ll slowly lose your knowledge of your first language.
  17. Reading books truly helps your writing.
  18. Our phones are advanced enough to take great photos, there isn’t always a need for investing in cameras.
  19. Succulents can be both easy and difficult to care for depending on if they have the same watering schedules.
  20. Cats make everything so dusty.
  21. Never cut contact with all of your peers just because you enter a relationship. If it ends, you have no one.
  22. Don’t let hate or rumors get to you, you know the truth.
  23. It’s okay to be negative, or to feel down. We all experience emotions, good or bad.
  24. It’s okay to start over, with school, with work, with anything.
  25. You’ll never truly know what you want to do with your life.
  26. Never take anything for granted.

That was the first twenty six things that came to mind! Do you have anything you have learned over the years that you have lived?

I have never been the biggest fan of jewelry..

I was very active when I was younger so I hated wearing necklaces, I never got my ears pierced, I didn’t like wearing rings because I was always in the woods or out in the fields and I would just lose them. My love for jewelry has certainly only been present for the past few years and I have purchased a few treasured pieces that I just love wearing. I don’t wear jewelry every single day but I do love to accessorize whenever I’m going out, no matter what occasion it is for. I don’t care much for handbags, sunglasses, shawls, scarves or anything else so jewelry is the way to go for me.

When it comes to buying jewelry, I rarely spend a lot, I know I’m either going to break it or lose it either way so I try to buy as cheap as possible. I don’t enjoy mass produced either, so I mostly purchase handmade jewelry off of Etsy. It makes me feel better that I can directly support whoever created it. There’s nothing wrong with purchasing jewelry from other stores or people, I just do what I think is right. Anyways, here we go:

DSC_0001

Amethyst cluster choker (probably not a real crystal, it is really heavy though) and a faceted glass choker, both with velvet bands. These two are my favorites and I love wearing them. Chokers do make me feel slightly claustrophobic at times but they’re both so pretty that it doesn’t really matter. Both are from sellers on Etsy.

DSC_0005

A metal dream catcher necklace. I love wearing this, but I don’t wear it as often as I probably should. It has a tendency of turning around and that can be a tiny bit annoying when you have to turn it back again and again. I don’t really remember where I purchased this.

DSC_0008

A chunk of tinted glass (they advertised it as some kind of quartz but it’s just glass) and a crescent moon, both from wish! I’ve been really into moon jewelry lately, been browsing Etsy for new pieces but haven’t found any that I wouldn’t regret purchasing.

DSC_0013

A 9 piece ring set, purchased from wish for like a dollar! These are so cute and I love wearing all nine of them at the same time. They are of varying sizes so that you can have more than one on a finger (like this). I really wish my fingers were more slender and longer so that I could fit even more of them on.

DSC_0017

And lastly I have a gold plated ring that I inherited from my grandmother when she passed away in December, and a blue faceted glass ring, a replica from the anime series Black Butler. Blue is one of my absolute favorite colors so I couldn’t resist purchasing it.

So that was my collection, for now! I might purchase some more in the future, because I’m bound to either lose or destroy some of these eventually. (Hopefully not though because I love them all).

Do you have any favorite jewelry?

Games played in July

July 26, 2017 — 45 Comments

I have taken upon myself to play through (or at least try) all of the games I have in my game library on steam, which is over 500 games. There are of course some games that are almost impossible to completely finish, like mmorpg games or simulators that doesn’t really have an end. But I will try, I will document my journey and I will review the games and my experience with them. It will be a weird mix of everything so I hope you will at least somewhat enjoy it.

The Abbey (Murder in the Abbey)

[ unfinished ]

I couldn’t get to finish this because of a bug that kept deleting my save. It is a decent murder mystery game where you play as a monk visiting an Abbey. One of the brothers died, possibly a murder or the work of the devil and you have to solve the mystery. It is a point and click game, the visuals aren’t great but the story is great. (At least what I was able to play before it broke was great).

Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden

[ completed ]

This is a point and click and hidden object game in one. You play as a woman heading down into the deep to find her fiancé who has disappeared. All traces lead her to an underwater city named Eden, it seems to have been a thriving community but something must have gone wrong. You solve puzzles, find clues, navigate through the areas to get closer to finding her guy, Robert. I don’t know if this has been the best game I’ve ever played but it was certainly not bad. If you have a few hours to kill and you enjoy hidden object/point and click games then maybe you will enjoy this.

Adams Venture Chronicles

[ unfinished ]

Awfully sexist. That’s my first thought when it comes to this game. It’s an adventure game where you explore ruins and find treasures, but boy, is it not written very well. In the very beginning of the game, the woman is objectified and some of his remarks are terrible. One example is when he enters the area for the first time, she asks if he remembered to bring the rest of their supplies, because it was all of their food that needed to be moved. Of course he hadn’t, because he said he thought that the huge crate was all of her make up. Why on earth would an archaeologist care about make up when she’s scavenging in a filthy ruin? I didn’t really care for the script, but the game itself is kind of good, if you don’t pay too much attention to what the protagonist says. I haven’t been able to finish the game yet.

Dungeon Siege

[ completed ]

Childhood classic. I found a demo disk ( is that the right spelling? Thanks to Funhaus, I have no idea if it’s spelled disc or disk anymore) that came with some computer magazine when I was younger and I played the heck out of the demo. Years later I purchased the game on sale on steam and I fell in love all over. Lately I’ve been wanting to revisit some of my favorite older games and this was the first on my list. It has a charming atmosphere, interesting mechanics and it’s generally a great rpg. The only sad part is that the grapphics are very outdated, it is an old game after all, so if great graphics is what you want, you wont like this very much! But if you want to play an old, charming rpg, you should give it a try.

Recently I was looking at the TAM Beauty website and I stumbled upon this beauty. It is still available there so you can get it for yourself, it is very discounted and it’s pretty much a bargain now! ( It’s on sale for £30, RRP is £80) This is a pretty sturdy storage chest that comes with a variety of make up items and tools that every girl needs. The doors have magnets in them so they will stay closed when it’s on display or being transported somewhere. It comes with a plastic sleeve you can keep around it to, to keep your make up extra safe.

IMAG0078

The chest has twelve compartments/drawers and each of them contains one set or one item when you open them. My package contained three bonus items too because TAM Beauty includes free samples for a limited time so I received 15 items in total. The bonus items were Velvet lip lacquers and a sample of a duo brow powder, which coincidentally was in the shade I normally use.

IMAG0129

All 12 items/sets + the bonus velvet lippies & brow powder.


IMAG0099

The first item, which was in the largest drawer on the top was their Iconic Nudes brush collection! I have been wanting this for a while so having it included in this set is amazing! The brushes are so incredibly soft and I really look forward to play with these. It is a 9 piece set, including a powder brush, contour brush, flat blending brush, prime & correct brush, conceal brush, flat eye shadow brush, round eye shadow brush, angled eye brow brush and a fine eye shadow brush.

For the rest, I will combine drawers, or else this would be a mile long!


IMAG0102

These are the small drawers on the left side and they contain these; Their blending sponge (that is sold in a bundle with the brushes), a Vivid baked highlight in “Peach lights”, an Ultra Pro Contour palette and a Trio Lipstick Amplification kit in “Ultra Vamp”.

IMAG0105

Contour palette, top row.

 

IMAG0108

Contour palette, bottom row.

 

IMAG0109

Trio Lipstick Amplification “Ultra vamp”, a cream, gloss and a liquid lipstick.

 

IMAG0111

Vivid baked highlighter in “Peach lights”.


IMAG0113

These were the small drawers on the right side, one item in each. They contained the Ultra Face Basic Primer, Trio Trio Lipstick Amplification kit in “Ultra nude” and “Ultra reds” and an eye brow kit. I only swatched the actual eye brow shades (4 powders and 2 creams), the waxes and highlights didn’t show up well on camera because I’m so hecking pale.

IMAG0117

The first three going down on the left side, the others are on the right side of the palette.

IMAG0118

The “Ultra reds” on the left, “Ultra nude” on the right. Liquid lip, cream and then gloss.


IMAG0126

These items are from the three drawers in the middle. These drawers contained a “Ultimate favorites” eye shadow palette with 32 (!) shades, a duo face sculpt compact and a HD Pro Strobe palette. They’re all very pretty!

IMAG0128

Swatches of the creams first, and the two powders. A good variety of undertones.

I didn’t do swatches of the contour compact because the shades are pretty much identical to the contour palette, and swatching 32 eye shadows would take so long! They are very soft to the touch and very pigmented though so I’m excited to see what kind of looks they can make.


IMAG0101

And here are the bonus items I received. The velvet lip lacquers didn’t feel too great on the lips, once they dried they became very sticky, but if I paired them with glosses from the lip kits they felt a lot better. It’s a shame that they end up being so sticky though because I love the colors, they’re very vibrant and not really patchy at all.

IMAG0120

“I keep lying for you” on the left and “Rebel” on the right.


 

So that was it for the Makeup Revolution storage chest! What did you think? Would you say it was worth it for £30? I’m very happy with it at least, and now I get more storage for my other make up too, I love organization!

I have always been fascinated by the thought of keeping a dream diary, and I have had multiple of them over the years. I threw them all out last year because they contained a lot of sensitive information and bad memories of a person I didn’t want to have in my life so it felt better to just get rid of them. I went for about six months without a dream diary to give it a break, then I decided to purchase a new note book in May of this year. It was such a relief to have a place to write down my dreams again and it felt like a weight had been lifted from my shoulders.

Sometimes I have dreams that I don’t understand, sometimes my dreams are terrifying and sometimes I just can’t remember what happened in them no matter how hard I try to recall them. They say that you get better at remembering your dreams over the years if you write them down but I’m not sure if that has been the case for me. Nor have I ever been able to control my dreams and they often turn for the worse, making me wake up feeling panicked or being drenched in sweat. I’m not sure why I have so many bad dreams but there is probably some scientific explanation behind it.

IMAG0012

The note book I’m using now I purchased off of Wish for about a dollar, and I think it’s really pretty. It uses a non bleached paper and I find  it to be really comfortable to write on. On the inside of the cover I have written a quote from a song performed by Neon Hitch, a song called neighborhood. It seemed really fitting since I have bad dreams a lot so my mind would most likely be a bad neighborhood anyways. I use a mix of my Staedtler Triplus Fineliner pens and some gel glitter pens to write in it with, not really being too picky about how it ends up looking. I just want it to be colorful and sparkly to make it seem more joyful than it is.

I find that writing down my dreams sometimes can help me work through issues that I have and it gives me a place to vent without having to share my burden with other people. I was never one to seek out others to talk with them because I didn’t want my problems to become theirs so writing was my therapy.

Have you ever had a dream diary? Is it something you have considered to have? Also, do you ever remember your dreams when you wake up? Sometimes I suddenly remember details towards the end of the day and it’s so weird. I’m always a bit skeptical, thinking that I’m just fabricating memories, but I can never be sure.
