This or That | Get to know Me

1b13fa67-ae93-471f-b383-0ec7a8f298aa

Why not let you guys get to know me a little better. Even the smallest things can say a lot about a person. Maybe I’ll even make a series of This or That, let’s see.

 

Cappuccino | Hot chocolate

Since I’m not a coffee-kinda girl, I’m choosing hot chocolate. I’m sorta like a chocoholic so..

 

Nude Lipstick | Bright Lipstick

This is a tough one. It’s really hard to find the perfect nude for my brown skin tone, but on a daily basis I would choose a nude. Otherwise I always reach for a red or plum lipstick.

 

Hair Up | Hair Down

I love having my hair down, but since it got Rapunzel-long, I’d rather put it up or it’ll get caught everywhere!

 

Plan everything | Go with the flow

I’m a pessimist – so I always imagine worst case scenarios and get anxiety about going to places and stuff, because so much can go wrong. So I’d rather plan everything if I can, but it doesn’t mean I can’t do spontaneous things too 😉

 

Pizza | Pasta

Don’t get me wrong, I like pizza and my dad had owned a pizzeria, but I LOVE pasta! I could eat pasta for days man.

 

Shop Instore | Shop Online

I’m honestly an introvert, and would avoid people if it was an option, but when it comes to shopping I prefer seeing the actual product to be completely sure if I want it or not. Especially when it comes to clothing – there’s nothing worse like clothes that don’t fit you as you envisioned.

 

Red wine | White wine

Ugh, seriously non. I personally think wine is disgusting, but if I had to choose I’d go for white wine. Or Rosé.

 

TV series | Movies

I’m too lazy for series, so if there’s a movie I would just watch that. At the same time I’m too lazy to constantly search for a new movie, so TV series is an easy option to keep me occupied for a while.

 

Showers | Baths

I don’t think I’ve tried taking baths, since we’ve never owned a bath-tub. Maybe someday I’ll try sitting in a tub filled with essential oils and flowers somewhere on a hotel in Bali. Maybe.

 

Nights out | Nights in

I’m a lazy, PJ-loving, sleepy introvert – so of course I’ll go with nights in. I do like nights out sometimes but nights in are my favorites.

I’m seriously considering semi-permanent lashes, if it wasn’t because I’m broke.

Hey guys! I mentioned in a previous post that I tried to create a 90’s/00’s kinda bollywood look (here) – but I didn’t bring much make-up and accessories so I was kinda limited. Even worse; I forgot my lashes. It’s a big deal for me since my own lashes don’t cut it.
I honestly wasn’t satisfied with the look, so I wanted to give it a try again some other day when I have my makeup with me.

The pictures above are a few shots of the look – I probably won’t post them on my Instagram, so you’ll only see them here 😅.

Danish Summer ☀️

img_5402 img_5386 img_5396I know I need a manicure and to mow the grass.

Hey guys! It’s been a hell of a week  (of course I’m talking about the weather). The sun was shining most of the week and I’ve taken the initiative to read outside. I’m sure my feet and arms got a tan already.
Thursday I tried to create an 90’s/00’s kinda bollywood look, without my complete makeup collection – mainly without my lashes – which was a challenge. I don’t think it turned out exactly as I wanted, so I’ll try again another time.
I’ll maybe post some of the pictures someday, we’ll see 😉

The book I’m currently reading is Sapiens – I challenged myself to finish it by the end of this week, and it almost seem impossible. It’s mostly because I have tons of other books to read as well. Heheh 🙂

Dress like you’re going to meet your Worst Enemy today

img_49995d8aff67-5405-428b-8f86-0cb2dd397f9f 27ecc83c-f349-4664-ac6c-2d04b80931c2 832b092f-00c1-419a-a648-584919db5a69AHAHA, don’t get intimidated by the title, but I honestly don’t dress this fancy on daily basis. Unless my life was like in an Indian drama, I probably would look this grand 24/7.

Anyways, hey guys! I’ve been waiting 8 months to wear this lehenga – I got it from Sri Lanka, and it is my first lehenga purchase. I actually wanted something more simple, but thought I would probably not get this opportunity to buy this grand style in maybe 10, so here I am, twirling in my fancy fancy lehenga 😀
It’s a pink/baby pink lehenga with golden embroidery. I wore it to a wedding reception. Since the lehenga was already heavy work, I wanted to keep the accessories, hair and makeup very simple. I did a brown smokey eye, with nude lips, curly hair and pearl-gold earrings and two gold bangles.
The skirt was unfortunately too short for me to wear heels, but in the end I was happy that I was forced to wear flats, so my feet wouldn’t hurt at the end of the night.

I can’t wait to wear more traditional outfits and experiment with different looks. Especially when we are moving towards spring/summer where lightening is at its peak *-* ♥

Top 20 || Cartoons and Anime

cartHey guys! You may be wondering what this is about (or not)? I realized that this blog is almost loosing its purpose, but then remembered that I did inform you dear readers that it was a blog about random things, so I’m not entirely sorry for this post.
Let me take you down memory lane. My childhood. Hopefully yours too – If you haven’s watched at least two of these shows, I’m sorry but we can’t be friends.

Beside playing outside all day long with my friends and siblings, I watched a lot of TV shows on Cartoon network, Disney channel, Fox Kids, Jetix and Nickelodeon. When cartoon and animation actually were GOOD.
In my opinion, nowadays cartoon and shows on Disney channel can’t be compared to how good it was back then. I used to watch it until I was 17, and had to stop when they stopped sending my favorite shows.

Anyway, here’s a list of some of my favorite shows I used to watch as a kid, and hopefully you haven’t missed out on them!

 

1) Legend of the last airbender

aangThis is the most genius thing ever! It’s not even anime, but reminds me of it a lot. Till this day I can still watch it and enjoy the humor and think the wisdom is beautiful. I think I might have rewatched this show at least 10 times! This show is no joke when it has a rating on 9.2 on IMBD. Just give it a chance if you haven’t watched it yet!
korra
The best part is, there’s a sequel to this show called “The legend of Korrra”, that is just as good! It has a rating on 8.6 on IMBD. I’m just saying.

 

2) Dexter’s laboratory

dexterThis is an OG if you watched Cartoon Network back then. It’s about this genius kid with a secret lab. So inspiring for a future geek lol.

 

3) Dragon ball

dbThanks to my brother, I grew up reading this Manga among other. Only a few years ago I started to watch the animated version of it – and last year I caught up on ALL the episodes until Dragon Ball Super, and have to catch up on some episodes. This is from the 90’s and is still airing, which is quite cool.

 

4) Yu-Gi-Oh (GX)

tumblr_static_mj8m6sqOkay, I’m guilty of not watching the original Yu-Gi-Oh, and instead directly watching this sequel. When I was probably 10-11 years old and had my own TV, I would watch this after everybody went to bed and sleep very late (we’re talking about 10pm).

 

5) Courage the cowardly dog

tumblr_n1xicwnu7o1sipm1io1_500I guess my love for horror/thriller genre started here. This show was disturbing, creepy, scary and still I couldn’t wait to get home from school to watch it. This show probably kick started my interest in reading horror stories and watch movies in that genre.

 

6) Scooby Doo

dismalcoordinatedarrowana-size_restrictedThey came out with tons of new versions and movies of Scooby Doo, but the original from 1969 are the best (and scariest)! The newer versions are softer and less scary in my opinion. It’s probably because of the brighter colors? For you who don’t know this show (shame on you) – it’s about this group of teenagers and their talking dog, Scooby, who drive from town to town and solve mysteries.

 

7) Recess

giphyI think we got Disney Channel later than Cartoon Network and Jetix at my home. This show was some of the first cartoons I watched on this channel. I remember the main characters were in fourth grade, and I was just in second or third grade – I couldn’t wait to be as old as them. Before I knew it was in ninth grade and felt so old. I don’t care, I still love this show and their morals.

 

8) Kim Possible

giphyAnother show from Disney Channel. I loved that the show had a female heroine. The best part of this show is the place Kim and Ron always hang out at, Bueno Nachos. When I was a kid I’d never eaten mexican food, so the thought of nachos, burritos and etc. dipped in cheese made me drool all over the place.

 

9) W.I.T.C.H

5f8f20e48f657391bdb75891338f98e4The first time I fan-girl’ed W.I.T.C.H was in third grade (somewhere in 2005?), where I found out another girl in my class also watched the show. We became really good friends in fourth grade and played the characters in the recesses and bought the W.I.T.C.H magazines and books. I even had the dolls. I was a major fan of this show!

 

10) Ed, Edd and Eddy

giphyAaah yeah, this idiotic show about three boys spending their whole summer chasing Jar breakers. It’s super entertaining but I’m amazed how I’m not completely brain-damaged of watching this. They came out with sequel very late – where they’re at school in fall. My younger self was super excited for that!

 

11) Codename: Kids Next Door

tumblr_ng1ylykjb41ramnmyo1_500As you can see, these were the cool kids of Cartoon Network. They made you wish you and the neighborhood kids had a secret organization in a tree house. They made you wish you had cool codenames. They made you wish… everything basically. They fought the evil adults and teenagers before they’d become one themselves.

 

12) Spiderman

qz0zaeaNo it’s not THAT spiderman, but the version from 1994. Where Mary-Jane was a redhead, May was an elder aunt and Peter Parker was a photographer . They aired the show on Jetix. According to me that was the prime time of Spidey.

 

13) Galactic Football

ad9ea16eOnce again, thanks to my brother I watched this Sci-Fi football show on Jetix. It was actually quite good. The only thing that bothered me was the graphics – it was weirdly animated instead of the classic cartoon. It was fairly new back then to animate shows in 3D, but till this day I still hate that kind of graphics.

14) Samurai Jack

deeAnother show I used to watch on Cartoon Network when I was a kid and had my own TV in my room. I retwached this show in my gab-year and it’s still pretty cool. Samurai Jack is about this samurai whose family and entire village got killed by this evil demon Aku. His father died fighting the demon when Jack was a baby – when he grew up he wanted to revenge his father, and fought Aku. During the fight Aku opened a portal and sent Jack to the future, where Aku has taken over the entire world. So the whole show is about Jack trying to get back to the past and defeat Aku.

 

15) Totally Spies

shorttermacrobaticdogfish-max-1mbThese secret spies were goals as I grew up! All the cool gadgets, shopping, clothes, missions and most importantly, their apartment was a goal of mine. I thought when I finally moved out I would live in a penthouse like they did. Disclaimer: I don’t.
My girl friends and I would always fight over who was which character and bought the dolls.

 

16) X-men

tumblr_ojlh5ergcs1vvmsa1o1_400I used to watch this cartooned version of X-Men Evolution from 2000. I know it isn’t the OG show, but for me it is since it aired during my childhood. I wonder if they would ever air any of these shows again?

 

17) Lilo & Stitch

tumblr_lxfurggfur1qi4ns0o3_500Another lovely show from Disney Channel’s prime time. I love how Lilo stay true to herself even though the other kids thinks she’s weird. And their relationship is the cutest. One thing I learned from this show is: Ohana means family.

 

18) Justice League

tumblr_nhc6isblpm1t0igjoo1_500Repeat after me: THIS IS THE DREAM TEAM OF JUSTICE LEAGUE. The whole concept of young justice and the DC motion movie with only a few of the characters can go to… yeah. That was only one out of many reasons I didn’t really like the movie. I’m not going to spoil anything for you, if you haven’t watched the movie yet. Nothing beats THIS team. Nothing.

 

19) Tom & Jerry

giphyThis is a classic. The older the version is, the better I like it. Only now I realize how violent this show is, and don’t understand how they did not think about minimizing the amount of violent-scenes in this show, since the majority of their viewers are kids. It was hilarious but it’s actually scarily wrong.

 

20) Peanuts

tumblr_owz9p9f7j41toamj8o2_r1_500Last but not least. Snoopy and peanuts. I LOVED this show – it was so simple and nostalgic. Well all of the shows are nostalgic, but I really loved this simple show. It was with few scenes, same friends and no adults.

I would honestly love if they could make a channel only for all these old school cartoons and anime. That would be a dream come true for not only me, but probably most people at my age. I don’t know about the rest, but that would be enough reason for me to invest in a TV again, lol.

I wanna see how well this post does, and consider to make a list of my favorite anime or childhood obsessions. It’s another way to get to know me as well 😉
