Happy 10th Anniversary, WoW (and other excuses for lack of posts) !

Hello everyone!

In case you've been wondering about my "absence" it's easily explained by the fact that World of Warcraft has launched its newest expansion and for the past week I have been busy power leveling, because this time for real, I want to experience the new content right away! :D With Cata and WotLK I had to wait for about a week before I was even able to start playing due to issues with my internet... but it's a lot of fun to be among the first wave of players to reach 100, start doing heroic dungeons and such. It feels a lot better than my super late start into Mists of Pandaria, at a point where nobody would even bother explaining dungeon or raid bosses to me anymore, because everybody was practically facerolling anyway and carrying me!  

Well, enough of the nerd talk... playing Wow means I really neglected some of my other hobbies... and I feel a bit bad about it! I didn't draw more than one picture for a planned art trade with my friend Jacky, I seriously have to clean up the mess in my apartment, we have to fix some stuff as well (got a new lamp for the living room! Finally!), do a lot of laundry... haha :'D

 I did go out once, so I wore make up and nice clothes! Well, except for the fact that it makes me look a bit pregnant I really like the outfit XD

With a frozen Heart and a Soul on Fire

Hello little morsels, ehm, I mean, readers!

Halloween is already over, but I still want to show you some pictures I took last night of my makeshift "costume"!

Originally I planned to go to a party, my boyfriend even changed his shifts to have a free weekend to spend together. However, the host of the party fell ill so it was canceled. We decided to spend a cozy night at home instead, but I still wanted to try out my make up & costume as I had planned, and I even managed to get some almost-decent photos!

Sultry Thursday: Comfort Zone

After what feels like a hundred years, last week end I decided to grab my brushes and put on some make up again!

The occasion is the "Sultry Thursday" project initiated by Godfrina from Kalter Kaffee. I currently don't really have a lot motivation (or inspiration) to do make up, so I welcomed the idea of having a set of "rules" to stick to. Gofrina's project currently doesn't have a set of colors as prerequisite, instead she chose a palette - in my eyes a great idea to collect ideas what to do with the colors of such a palette!

At first I was hesitant to participate because I don't even own Wet'n'Wild's Comfort Zone palette. It looks really pretty though, and when I came to think about it I noticed that I have quite similar colors somewhere in my make up collection. So in the end, I decided to give it a try, and this is what I came up with!

Review: "Magic Hair Curlers"

Hello guys and welcome to the very first blogpost written from my new computer, wohoo! It's great to finally, after so many years, have a proper system to work with, and I especially enjoy my new keyboard... even faster typing, perhaps this means I can write new blogposts faster too and thus post more frequently, haha! Well, we'll see :)

Today I want to tell you about my experiences with hair curlers, also called curl formers... well, I don't really think those things have a real, distinct name (yet), so I'll just call them magic hair curlers for the time being :D
These weird, colorful things seem to be a rather new thing, last summer I read a review about them and seemed very intrigued so I looked around on ebay and soon found some to try it all out...
Since even though I cut my hair it is still pretty long, I will try to give some advice to people with long hair who want to try this kind of product in the course of my review!

I want to apologize in advance for the bad photo quality. Time and daylight are not something I am currently blessed with in abundance, so I just tried to take some snapshots here and there, to illustrate this review at least a little bit!

Long story short: Yes, they do work and make nice curls! For the long story...

Picture My Day #16 - Yeah Science, Bitch!

Today was "Picture my Day" day once again (I missed #15 D: But here are the posts of previous PmdDs that I participated in: 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8 and 7 ). This time organized by Sumi, she chose this particular date because it would be her first day working at a new company - and coincidentally, it was the same for me!

Some of you might know that I'm starting to work on my Master's thesis now, but since I want to keep a "low profile" about these things in the future for various reasons, I probably won't write about my work in the future. In case you're curious what I'm doing, feel free to message me on my facebook fan page though.

Anyhow, so for those of you who never heard of PmdD - on this day, participants take photos of whatever happens that day, be it super exciting fun stuff or just their regular work day routine. For me, it was more or less both. On one hand, starting at a new work place is of course always exciting, but since I did some pretty routine work on my first day I don't really have very exciting stuff for you to show. But I guess starting with today, this is what most of my workdays will probably look like. If you're curious what it's like - read on! I took the photos with my cell phone, so I apologize in advance for the quality ^^"

"Goooood morning! You awake yet?"
