Wet n Wild makeup haul!

Hi folks!

Yesterday (17th January) was the last day when we had a store called ÖoB in town. It seemingly didn't go all that well for them so yeah, they had to close. It makes me sad because I liked this store but oh well, no can do. :( I went there for a last time –on the very last day– with Jäätynyt Enkeli and Sacchan. It was a really weird feeling to see that the store was almost completely emptied; only a few items were scattered here and there on the empty shelves.
Luckily for us the makeup counter was the one with the most products left (still more than half empty) and, well, we mainly went to the store for just that! You see, Wet n Wild is a makeup brand that your typical Swedish (or Finnish) stores doesn't carry. ÖoB is honestly the only physical store I've ever seen their stuff in! D: And yeah, for being a "drugstore brand" I've heard pretty good stuff about their products.
Seeing how everything in the store was 80% off on the two last days (excluding medicines, magazines and cigarettes) I couldn't help myself but enter haul mode, lol. I bought everything that I deemed I could get some use out of, eventually. xD


There's eyeshadows, nail polishes, liquid eyeliners, a blush, a mascara and a pencil eyeliner. The colors of the liquid eyeliners are brown, turquoise and blue – I've been wanting to try some crazy colors lately and I was happy that these unusual ones were left, hahah.

I'm sorry but I can't be bothered to list the exact names of all the products but yeah, if anyone wants reviews of a particular item just tell me and I'll make it happen! ;) Oh and yeah, some of these I bought with future cosplays in mind and others I bought because WHY THE HELL NOT? :'DD
I seriously ended up saving like almost 1000 SEK on my whole purchase!! Can you believe it that all this (and some movies) only cost me approximately 200 SEK? o(≧∇≦)o

That's all for this time! Keep your eyes out for some manly fabulousness!

When the postal service can go suck a dick

 Hi guys.

Guess what? – I AM ANGRY RIGHT NOW. (凸•̀益•́)凸
Okay, so I just need to vent because I'm so flippin' mad. Beware for foul language... AND CAPS LOCK.

[rant ahead]

FOR OVER A MONTH AGO I PLACED AN ORDER ON A JAPANESE SITE TO ORDER SOME MERCH. EVERYTHING GOES AS IT SHOULD BUT THEN MONTHS PASS AND NOTHING SHOWS UP IN MY MAIL BOX. I CHECK IT EVERY DAY FOR A PAPER NOTICE THAT MY PACKAGE HAS ARRIVED BUT NOPE – DAYS GO BY AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. NOTHING.
TODAY I RECEIVED AN EMAIL FROM THE STORE SAYING THAT THE PACKAGE HAD BEEN RETURNED TO THEM BECAUSE NO ONE CLAIMED IT.
WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK??!

I WANT TO KILL SOMETHING BECAUSE THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THE POSTAL SERVICE FUCKED ME OVER BECAUSE THEY FUCKING DON'T SEND ME THE FUCKING SHIPMENT ARRIVAL NOTIFICATIONS!! (╬⓪益⓪)
HOW CAN I PICK SOMETHING UP IF I DON'T KNOW THAT IT'S THERE??????

SO YEAH, NOW I TOTALLY HAVE TO PAY SHIPMENT COST AGAIN FOR A RE-SHIPMENT BECAUSE THE POST FUCKED UP. And pray that I don't get any additional costs tacked on... FOR A SECOND TIME.
THANKS SWEDEN'S POSTAL SERVICE AND GO SUCK A DICK.


And before anyone asks – I rarely get items directly to my mail box. I almost always get a paper notice saying that I can go pick it up from the nearest postal service point, which is in a big food store. The thing with the paper notices is that you always get them twice; once when it arrives and a second one (a reminder) if you haven't picked up your package within a week. THE THING IS THAT THIS TIME I NEVER GOT ANY OF THE TWO.
I've had multiple occasions when I've only received the "reminder" one or the first one and then never a reminder. I SERIOUSLY HATE IT SO MUCH, WHY CAN'T THE POST WORK NORMALLY??

Yeah, that's it. kthxbai

We all know "the chair"

Yoo!

This is probably a quite unnecessary post but honestly, it's my blog so I don't care! BOAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
...
So yeah, one day I was just chilling around and scrolling through the internet and that's when I found this highly relatable image:

OMG I couldn't help myself but to laugh; it's so true in my case. :'DD The thing is that ever since I was a teenager I've had a black leather gaming chair and well, I had a bad habit of putting my stuff on it. When enough shit had piled up on the damn thing you couldn't tell there was a chair under it all, LOL. Mom would always rage at me for it but yeah... I couldn't help myself; stacking my clothes and whatnot on the chair is a deeply rooted habit and, no matter how many times I cleaned it up, it was back to "the chair" after a week or so. xD I guess I always just left stuff on it because it was easy to access and I had a lack of storage space elsewhere... or a mix of the two.

This is my contribution and version of "the chair".

Anyone else who does this? XD

Christmas and New Year 2016!

Hello people of all genders!

First of all I want to wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2016! o/
I spent my Christmas as I typically do, which means that I stayed at mom's for a couple days or so. We always celebrate Christmas on the 24th and it's a tradition that we eat porridge on the morning. Mom had invited grandma and her husband over for the breakfast porridge and that made me realize that I hadn't seen grandma in, like, forever! It was sad to see though that she didn't walk with a straight back anymore...
I'm really not a big fan of Christmas food so yeah, when dinner kicks in I'm not all too happy, lol. xD I mostly just like a very few things of the traditional Christmas foods that we have – raw salmon being the best. As a person who really dislikes ham (and pork meat in general) Christmas food isn't high on my list...
Regarding Christmas presents I finally got my first smartphone from dad as an early Christmas present! My Nokia N9 has been acting all kinds of weird lately and it's really a bother – it has had the screen freezing completely (which renders the phone unusable since it's all by touch), shuts itself down randomly, even though the battery is full etc. It sucks when someone is calling me and I can't answer because the touch screen is not responding!! D: So yeah, dad gave me an Samsung Galaxy J5, a phone case for it an a memory card. The only requirements I had was that it was a smartphone and had a good camera. x) Today's society expects you to have a smartphone and yeah, I've had so many issues with school and whatnot because of not having a new generation cellphone, ugh. Now that's over at least, hah!

First off some photos of the cellphone! :DD All the protective plastics are still attached.





And here's the package photos etc:

This is everything that I got from dad. The smartphone itself, a memory card and a book-case.
Box opened and the stuff taken out.
Everything that came with the cellphone spread out.
I spent New Year by celebrating it twice; living at the border between two countries with different time zones has its benefits, lol. xD I went to watch the fireworks and the celebration ceremony at the border and I must say that it was a disappointment and I felt uncomfortable because it was horribly crowded, everyone smoked cigarettes right in front of me (I HATE IT SO FUCKING MUCH, OKAY?) and somewhere I could smell the smell of... some stronger stuff, if you know what I mean. I'm not gonna go into details why I felt uncomfortable, except that I dislike crowds but yeah, as soon as Finland's clock struck midnight and the fireworks show was over me and my friends left – actually, we time traveled back to 2015, aka to Sweden. :DD If anyone wonders, by the way, our company consisted of me, Jäätynyt Enkeli, our friend Marcus and Sacchan.

One of the very few firework photos I managed to get.
We went to the shore and watched Sweden's fireworks with Sacchan's car parked next to the river. It was really comfy to sit inside a warm car when it was really windy outside (cold winds, brrr) and shitchat with some dear friends meanwhile we watched a second set of some really amazing fireworks being fired off in the distance – Sweden's new year.
After the fireworks we went back to my apartment with the whole gang and then we proceeded to play Tekken 5 until freakin' 8 in the morning, lol. xD I ate so much candies that I felt like I'd puke.

That's a short summary of how my Christmas and New Year celebrations were. :)
Thanks for reading! Bye bye!
