Medialuna

I am so much in a rush of beauty these days. It is quite overwhelming, the beauty in everything that this world consists of, isn't it?

I'm currently doing a proper attempt at lucid dreaming. Will do my reality checks several times during my days from now on. Hope to discover secret realms of my unconciousnes! I shall not be too eager as of yet, I am lucky to remember all my dreams, but I rarely have lucid dreams. My previous attempts has failed me, but I will try more convincingly this time!

I will meet my sister and brother for lunch tomorrow! Will be fun as I haven't seen them since Jul (christmas). We live merely 30 mins away from each other but continue to fail on seeing each other often. Tomorrow we will bake one of moms signature cakes together as well. We try to do things that reminds us of mom whenever we meet. We are the only ones sharing what we had together with her, so it makes good sense to bring the sensation of her to life with them.

It doesn't look like my dad will be free to join us at lunch or cakebaking, so I will have to find time for him later. Or rather, him find time for me. He is due to undergo an open heart surgery on the 10th of February, and I can not say that I am relaxed around the matter, and least it be a 4 days belated birthday gift. I only hope for a much later gift, of his recovery.

a little piece of childhood

This necklace is a piece with three pendants, all collected on different times in life. The crushed gold heart has its own little story though. It was a gold heart given to me by one of my grandmothers. I was too young to recall, and now sadly everyone who knew who I originally got it from, is gone. I do however, think of both my grandmothers and my mom when I wear it. Which is better than one, and certainly better than none.

Anyhow, the gold heart is disfigured due to an early meeting with my teeths. I was old enough to have seen movies where old men would bite a coin to check if it was real. I thought that was what one commonly did with gold, so I took a bite. Only to discover it to be hollow.

I remember before that time, giving the heart away to a neighbour. It was clearly not mine to give and my mom had to collect it. As my mother died I went through her things and found this hidden in her jewellry box and decided to add it to the necklace.

Frozen breakfast

Frozen fruits and berries are one of my favourite snacks when I am in urgent need of something sweet. Frozen grapes are the top fav, as its sour-sweet taste comes through perfectly even while frozen. 

Happy monday!

Zitababy

This is zita. haha, such an amazing photo, showing off her beauty! or not. She was asleep, and it was actually very cute, my flash ruined it though, but it was too dark without flash, as she's so dark. I believe she has not been properly i troduced in the blog. Shes still such a baby.

red, red, red

Burgundy: it's in again!! Or maybe, rather out? I found these babies at an Urban Outfitters sale. I like to think that burgundy can be used any time of the year anyway.

everyday its snowing

I'm wearing my thick woolen socks at all times. My toes stings and bites after the daily hour outside with the kids at work. I'm not trying to say that it's a bad thing - in fact, I love it.

HLSK

The materialist in me is craving one of these pieces. Aren't they just gorgeous? (All pieces are linked)

pink pj's and chai tea


Okay, there is only one person I know of who paid attention to what my favourite tea is, and I guess that one person can guess right now what I'm having. It tingles my tounge even. A sweet combination of the cinnamon and honey. 

My new pj's are on. I know they're pink. I happen to like pink, thank you. I've been drooling over this set since before christmas, but I had to get it to myself on half the price today. I guess I could've wished for them for my birthday, but I like to be a party pooper and buy my own gifts. All I need now is to re-read the end of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? to be complete. Just have to finish watching Jamie Oliver cook something delicious.

Frank

Watchmania

i have this thing for watches. i think it mightve started when i discovered urban outfitters online some time back, and went crazy on craving their watches. later on whenever i visit urban outfitters, im always planning to buy a new watch. last time, in london i saw this watch but decided to go for another one, but it was waiting on me in copenhagen for a third of the price! lucky, materialistic me. i did however not get my hands on a tauntaun from the disney store. they seem to have run out of them.


copenhagen was fun btw. but experienced some awful weather and quite heavy waves. it did not help by having had too much to drink.

breakfast in bed


Haha, skulle tro det var en reklame for jus.

ONE LINE A DAY

I just finished painting my nails and writing my line of today.

I have yet to pack and get properly ready for copenhagen, but it seems I have tomorrow off work, with plenty of time to get it done before departure.

I look forward to meeting the city again after so long. Before that the waves awaits. So long!

A long way back

Okay, I clearly forgot to wish the blog and everyone a Happy New Year! The blog has been alive since 2008, and even though the posts back then were crappy, they're still in my archives. nRelate, the feature I used for random links to other posts in posts are gone, so I'll have to find something new. It's the second time I have to look for a new one. 

Recent updates in the life of the living of importance is; Tempi, my favourite kitten had to be put down cause he was severly sick. The other kittens are doing very well thankfully, and so is Bebi though she had a hard time realizing he was gone. Work is good, and I keep myself entertained by writing, reading, gaming and seeing friends. 

Oh, and a wee bit of drawing too. I needed some time to think of my New Years Resolutions, so here they are: 
❥  Read as much as I did last year.
❥  Draw once a week at least
❥  See new places.
❥  Go to the movies more often.
❥  Exercise 4-5 times a week.
❥  Cook new delicious food.
❥  Continue not eating meat.
❥  Finish my novel before NaNoWriMo this year.
❥  Run more.
❥  Photograph more.
❥  Practice piano.
❥  Mejorar mi español.

and a maybe ones:
❥  Attend school.
❥  Move.
❥  Blog more. ehe, I'll try for my own sake. 

Next thing up is Copenhagen this weekend!

101 movies you should watch

There, long needed updated version of the 101 movies I want included in this list. Fuck it if I forgot something, it has taken too long already. By this day, these 101 titles cathegorize as my favorites. There are more, but either below or too obvious. Some titles are classics, and therefore very obvious favorites, but perhaps you'll be able to find some interesting new titles here worth a review. Every picture is linked to IMDb, but I have not taken my time to check them all to be correct yet. Please not me if some of them are wrongly linked. Some of you who have followed the blog for a while might recognize som of the titles I've blogged about.

These are films that has taken a part in makeing me who I am. Films that give me something; films I can watch again and again; films that make me laugh, cry or thoughtfull, or everything at once; films I have analyzed; films that share my points of view on this world; films with interesting context; films with scary foresights; and most important, films that portraits amazing ordinary people, old, young, younger, and their life in order or disorder. It's as interesting as it is to imagine a strangers life, rythm, rituals, scedule, and set of mind.
