Octopus Daughter


I allowed myself a little retail therapy after an exam:

So happy!!
I bought Stuppy only because it has an article about Hanashounen baddies,
but the poster of Ruki, which came with the magazine, is so badass♥
But the Shoxx was like the perfection itself; it featured R-shitei poster, card and a cd - R-shitei's song Koroshitai kurai aishiteru♥ And with these pearls came a free Gab. magazine.

I bought also new winter shoes...

...which is a miracle since I  absolutely  h a t e  buying shoes, It's so hard to find shoes I like.
Winter shoes are especially hard to buy, they tend to be rather ugly.... I hope that these will be worth of the money, they were quite expensive. I bought one size bigger than usual so that woollen socks would fit nicely too, I hope that I wont regret it...

I have some new hobbies. I can spend hours browsing webshops, choosing things I would like to buy and add them to cart, and then leave without buying anything. Shopping without buying is a cheap way to shop, lol. I guess I will wait after Christmas before buying anything to myself, since Christmas presents must be bought first.
boooring ;__; I want to go shoppinggggghhhn

My other new hobby is to learn coding. It's surprisingly fun O_O but I feel myself so nerd.
In addition to that, I'm currently watching Super Sonico and enjoying it. My interesting hobbies......
Somehow it feels like every day is thursday, I don't know why.
Never ending thursday is quite a sad thing, weekend will never come!

~I will just go on without thinking too much~
Here are some new makeup purchases:

Skinfood Aloe Sun Bb cream (sample), Lioele Triple the Solution Bb cream ( with the package) and Baby Lips Cherry Me Lip Palm

Lioele Triple the Solution Bb cream was on my wishlist.
I really like this product! ♥ It has quite thick texture. The coverage is surprisingly good! This really makes miracles to my skin - my skin is in really good condition now. The redness and oiliness have decreased and there isn't so many breakouts anymore!! Therefore it isn't a surprise that I think I like this even more than the bb of Missha, which I suspect causing me some breakouts..... Lioele bb also stays on my face better, I like the color and the finish more, it's more natural on my skin. But at first I was quite shocked when I changed from the pale Missha (shade 21) to a bit darker Lioele.
I haven't tried that bb by skinfood yet, but somehow I don't even have very high expectations... I have still one bb cream on my wishlist, however I guess that I will use those two for a while before purchasing a new one.
And I just couldn't resist buying the red Baby Lips~ It is my favourite now♥

What would my blog be without food porn? Here you go:
We made some sushi~

My sister had a birthday and my friends came to visit, so I just had to bake cakes!♥
I also baked Aunt Hannah's cakes and gingerbread cookies with Aura cheese.
For my sister: cherry-chocolate cake decorated with Daim

For friends: marshmallow chocolate cake

Lunch with Mom, Greek food - Orektiko

Days have been colder so I have been able to wear my new yellow jacket!
It's funny to be yellow as I am usually so black.
I have had to keep my clothes quite plain and neat because of my uni studies, which is a pity.

And I can't even use nail polish!! That really sucks but I will cope with it because that rule is relevant.

Holiday nails
I had also a chance to adventure with my baby♥ I had to leave her in a cave with some creepy creatures ;____;
I hate caves!!!

I'm really busy with my studies. It takes so much of my time, the days feel so long. But on the same time... ...I'm excited!! lolimage

Either Wise Or Fool


My project of finding better makeup products got some boost.
A little foreword: My makeup history is relatively short; I started to use mascara when I was in high school, and bb cream when I graduated from high school. Before that, I used only concealer. Because of my lack of experience I won't write full reviews about the products - you can find well-done reviews all around the internet. I'm just going to state my own opinion about them.

Maybelline Baby Lips "Peach Kiss" Lip Balm, Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream no.21
and Skin79 Orange Super Plus Triple Function BB Cream (sample)

I have sensitive, oily and acne prone skin, so originally I didn't like the idea of putting foundation on my face and clog the skin pores. The reasons why I gave a try to bb cream were the claimed benefits for skin. I have used only one bb cream before trying the new ones. I used Miracle Skin Perfector BB by Garnier for two years.

The reason why I became interested in Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream, was that I wanted to try something better. I investigated a little and found out that Missha was said to be one of the best bb cream producers. The idea of getting bb from Korean label also fascinated me, since the bb boom started from there and, well, if you have seen the skins of some Korean stars, you will know.

After using Missha for a month, I think I already see some good effects. I don't know if it's just my imagination and hopeful thinking, but my skin feels softer and better all over. But, I suspect that this bb caused me breakouts at first and I even felt my cheeks burning. I continued to use it nevertheless, since I wasn't sure what was the cause, and that haven't happened again.

After trying Missha, Garnier bb looks so yellow! Compared to Missha, it looks also duller on my face, whereas Missha makes my skin look more bright. I think it also has fairly good coverage for a bb cream, but I still use concealer with it (+powder). Missha also stays on my face longer than the Garnier bb. All I can say about the skin79's bb is that it's maybe a bit too pale for me and doesn't stay as well as Missha. But this too feels better than the Garnier. Since I only got a sample I can't say I see the claimed effects.

Maybelline Baby Lips "Pink Punch" and Au naturel eyeshadow palette by Sleek

Love the Pink Punch!♥ While Peach Kiss only gives a little nude shine on your lips, the Pink Punch really IS pink♥ In my opinion, these aren't very hydrating.

And the eyeshadow, so full of pigment!

And I tried it on! If you only can see anything:
Sorry for the weird looking face :''') I think that I didn't really succeed, but I didn't fail completely either!

There is still some things to renew among my beauty products.
In my wishlist, there are a better powder, a better eyeliner and a non-alcohol toner, maybe some new blushes too. I have already found my favourite mascara, False Lash Effect Waterproof By Max Factor,
so no need to look for a better one.
Although I love the bb by Missha, I'm still going to try different bbs, they kinda got me hooked.
I'm waiting for one package atm~

Latest nail art!
I wanted to try something more "elegant"....

Despite the ultimate half-assity of the nail art, I actually liked these a lot! I spent time in lectures just staring these, lol.

Artwork of the summer:

I was quite unproductive; in three months, I drew only these eleven, a few rough sketches and one work which is still in progress. Even getting a new set of coloured pencils didn't make me super productive love them though, boohoo! I'm lazy putting anything to deviantart because of the scanner problems etc. Maybe later.

My studies are going to turn more intensive than ever (though more interesting too) + I'm a little sick now
--> my current mood is just tiiiiireeeeeed.............image

Dream or Truth – Empty Girl

Hello again!

I'm lazy to take outfit pictures, it's a bad thing for my so called style diary.
Anyway, here's some:

I picked blueberries - and other berries -  as planned. It's so relaxing to be in the woods~  You get some physical exercise too when you pick so it's pretty nice. I tend to listen bands like Girugamesh and Dir en grey,
when picking berries listening to them just feels right.
Growling and screaming are very suitable to the silence of the woods♥

Even though everyone said there's no blueberries anywhere, we have found them in many places and picked a decent amount to our freezer.

My work ended so I was able to paint my nails again♥ ;_______;

My sister had her 23th birthday and we baked a cake together:

The Groke from the Moomins!!! It is pretty scary......
The Groke is scary, I would die if I encountered the real Groke at night....
(but I still think that the Lady of the Cold would be even worse thing to face,
she is dangerous for real, while the Groke is only very very lonely!)
the birthday table - Groke is going to eat the other cake!!

Still one week of holiday left. I'm just going to be lazy while I can, meet my friends, visit Ikea and that kind of things~~ In addition to improving my style, my newest project is to renew the contents of my makeup pouch - to find the  best makeup products for me.
Even though weather has gotten chillier, I  like the early autumn, it's so refreshing and pretty!

Ultramarin Hell


I had about worst birthday ever = I don't want to write about it.
I have got used to my work = it doesn't make me so tired anymore.

chocolate-liquorice cake
(macarons are frozen products, we are still practising to make those^^")

By the way, I finally bought myself a new set of Faber-Castell coloured pencils!♥

Faber-Castell's pencils have always been my drawing tools. Since they are so long lasting, I still have short remainings of F-C pencils from my childhood which I have been using until this day. In addition to my short Faber-Castell's, I have been using Denwert's Studio coloured pencils (set of 24). I have dreamed about new Faber-Castell pencils for a long time and wanted a wider range of colours.

My old tools - Denwerts and random collection of Faber- Castells

And there they are, my new love:
These have many good sides: colours are so rich, these are easy to erase, no wax-bloom (unlike my Denwerts!!). Only con I can come up with now is that the colour selection of the 36 set is a bit weird for my liking, I would have appreciated some skin tones and one cold grey instead of two warm greys... And because the pencils are so round they tend to roll and fall to floor, if you are not careful. XD But overall, the pencils = love. I am already thinking about buying the set of 120...

Animecon XI came and went. I have to say that at least for me, the event was somewhat boring. Oh well, at least I got some variation to my summer...
Quick half-assed nails for Animecon. Boohoo short nails because of work

Animecon outfits, days 1&2:

I just hung out little, did my work shifts and went home...
In any case, the anime concert was great. They played also Lilium (from Elfen Lied).♥

How my animecon behind the info desk looked like

It's only less than three weeks work left! Yayyy~.
But soon it's also time to pick berries, so no lazy holiday for me!

Your Shadow Is Now Mine


My sister graduated from high school and therefore we hold her a party. First days of my holiday were full of cleaning and baking when we arranged the party.

Party outfit; I love that dip back hem♥

Party nails:
Savory treats:
Sandwich-cakes, Karelian pies and salmon

Sweet delicacies:

white chocolate - blackcurrant mousse cake ♥ mint - chocolate mousse cake ♥
lemon - orange - coconut cake ♥ cloudberry cake

My favourite; strawberry mousse cake♥ blog has been so full of food lately, sorry for the all this food porn
After the party weekend, my summer job began. It's wearing me out already... Work shifts either start early or end late, so I'm a bit sleep deprived. I will endure because of all that money~♫♪♬
When I'm tired Playstation is a dear friend of mine. Currently I am playing Mirror's Edge and The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim, and one day played little bit of Grand theft auto V too~

 How real men park their stolen cars - my awesome parking skills in gtaV
But  I like Skyrim most!
Look who is so prettyyyy ;____;
My character is a high elf, pictured while heading to kill the dragon.
....btw, see you in Animecon! image(I propably won't have time to post again before it, so I am saying it now)
