Frost part 1

So I cheated and saw the movie Frost (it's shown in Sweden January 31 and I couldn't wait) and I got so inspired to try a winter wonderland queen style makeup. So I started with focusing on just the eyes. I'm poking for more inspiration to make this look well more than just eye shadow and lipgloss. Well, we will see about that!
Until next time;
Have a great weekend!

Lucy going to Narnia

Gingerbread houses are so fun to make when christmas is in town. But at the Andersson's you never see the same thing. See every year we build something new. We have had the classical house but we've had a car, a christmas tree, a gym set, a computer and so on. This year we decided to do the wardrobe from Narnia! We even made Lucy walking in!
Check it out - step by step.

Speak Life

Hey there fantastic readers out there!
I've decided to start a second blog. A blog were I only write about my faith and belief. I'm calling it Speak Life and the bible verse I'm standing on is Matthew 28:18-20 and 1 John 4:18!
Here is a selfie from this weekend! And don't forget to check out the other blog!

Long time no see!
I can't begin to describe how much I've wanted to blog these past few days but I've been swamped with work combined with pain in my back. So unwillingly I put the blogging aside until some of the weight on my shoulders was relieved. But I finished all my sewing projects in time for rehearsals! But if you want to see the result as it was meant to be seen, and of course if you are in Stockholm this coming weekend, you have to see them live!
I now I could have made the garments a whole lot better but considering the time limit I had, I'm pretty happy about the final result!

So here is a selfie of me, the Swedish American girl!

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow

Did you miss me?
Sorry again for being so off lately but hopefully things will slow down a little after today and I will get some more time for blogging. Tonight, I'm starting my little sewing project, yesterday I saw Hunger Games with my sister and tomorrow after work I am meeting up with my other sister and my grandmother to see Swan Lake at the opera house here in Stockholm.
So until next time;
Have a lovely end of the day!

Read, Write, Create

Hey Guys!
It's november and working  on a novel based on a short story I wrote a while back. This is a map I made a few years ago. Well, I actually drew a map in the 8th grade and then I made this map from that drawing. What do you think?

Here is a preview :

Dave fired the first arrow, but as it hit the charging moorins, it simply bounced off the chest leaving the moorins unharmed. Dave's eyes grew large at the sight at look in desperation over at Millaray who still sat aiming her arrow at the foul creatures.
"Millaray?" The moorins were getting closer and closer.
"MILLARAY!" He yelled and Millaray released the arrow and as it pierced the closest moorin a great flash appeared and it sounded like lightning struck right in front of them Dave covered his face and shut his eyes and when he looked up the moorins lay lifeless and burned on a pile in the dirt just a few yards in front of them. Without another word, Millaray spoke in a whisper to her horse and slowly it turned around and headed south. Stunned and startled at the sight of the dead moorins Dave rushed to Millaray's side and pulled her rains, forcing her to stop. She turned her head toward Dave.
"What was that?" He demanded looking straight into Millaray's golden yellow eyes.
"I killed the moorins" she acted as if she had killed thousands of moorins single handedly. Irritated, Dave shook his head.
"Yes I got that, but what was that flash?" Millaray's expression remained the same.
"For now, I think it is better if you don't know" she pulled her rains free from Dave's grasp and once again whispered to her horse who without hesitation set off in a trot. Dave followed.

Beauty in Stockholm

Hey People! I'm Back!

Anything goes

Jeans from Levi's, Shirt, Shall and Shoes from H&M, Jacket from Forever 21

Here we go again!
Work is piling up but I managed to get photos of my outfit today. Just to warn you, post won't be coming as often I would like. Coz I am currently studding for a test, applying for a history course, writing a book, working 50%, going to school 50% and designing a few garments for a christmas show. Well, lets just say, time is money and my savings are running low.

Oh, but life is good so I'm not complaining!

Gel Nail polish

I love fixing nail polish but it never lasts. See I work with my hands so keeping my hands clean and my nails pretty is not easy. Then I found Gel Nail polish! You get fantastic nails that lasts up to two weeks!
