Elegance in Sport

28832435_2336815129677374_1725195931_nWow this must be the first time I update you guys on currently happened event. As in, it happened today.

Anyways, hey guys! As you can see on the picture above, I brought out my old skates after 5 years! Yes it has been 5 years since I stood on the ice. I’ve missed it so much! It was the one sport I chose by myself and had dedication to. I wasn’t as good as the competing skaters, but I really enjoyed the sport. It’s so elegant, expressive and filled with techniques. I skated for 4 years before I quit, because of studies.
I didn’t know what to expect, going on the ice again after such long time. To my surprise I instantly found balance when I stepped out on the ice, and could easily skate backwards. I didn’t have the balance to jump around and do all the fancy tricks I once mastered.

Skating around, some people approached me and asked if I was a figure skater, and for how long I’ve skated. They could instantly spot that I’ve skated properly before, so that was kinda cool 😉
I would absolutely go back if I could, but the season is over soon, and I’ll have to wait until September 🙁

Delayed Spring?

a bHey!

Is it just me… or is the weather totally unapologetically inappropriate for marts? Marts is the first month of spring and it’s literally snowing. A lot. More than it did the past few months.
For those who don’t believe in global warming… please take a look outside 🙂

Anyways – it won’t stop me from enjoying it a little bit. It’s pretty and we still get to drink hot chocolate and wear fluffy socks.

As I can see, the snow is already beginning to melt again, and the temperature is slowly rising – so hopefully we can expect spring-weather soon, right? 😉 ♥

Anti-Social Club

Hey guys!

I know the title says “Anti-social club” – by that I mean I’m the only member. I’ve been drowning in studies and hadn’t seen the daylight for days since I’ve been on and off sick and studying at home. Since my mom and sister had holiday, they came by during a week-day to take me out for lunch. When they came they could see how I’d locked myself inside my apartment for days. They even noticed I got thinner and paler, which is in my opinion quite bad!
I haven’t been to fitness for a month now and been overly lazy when it comes to cooking and grocery-shopping. Hopefully by the end of the month I can get started on training and eating healthy again.

Anyways, we got lunch at the town and I ordered a steak for the first time – delicious actually. I’ll keep you updated once in a while. Sometimes I need a quick break from all the studies, so either the blog or my books are my escape 😉 ♥

Eeeeeeey! It wouldn’t be my post if it wasn’t published some days later, hehehehe. Happy belated valentine’s day!
Today I bring you a chrome cut crease – I didn’t want the look to be too pink so I added a champagne-ish color from inner-corner to the center and cut the crease with a rose-gold chrome glitter shade. All this, presented on a bitch-resting face. 

I’ve been busy studying – it’s just getting more and more tough, and so stressful. So I took some hours off and put on some makeup and relaxed for a bit, even though I was going nowhere. I also decided to take a few days off Instagram to get my stuff done. I’m honestly spending way too much time on it and decided it would be better for me if I reminded myself that what’s really important is, that I’m present and doing my work as first priority. I get easily distracted, and so far it has been going well. 

Besides, it is my birthday week, but I’m not sure if I’m going to celebrate this year, since there’s a lot to catch up on -.- ♥

What’s coming next?

Hey guys!

First of all; this is a little sneak peek of what I’ve spend my mini holiday on at home. All in all I did 3 looks with 1 makeup-look. 

Uff, I know it’s a lot of lightening happening on me, and lots of contrast/shadows in the background. I actually started to like this kinds of pictures – I’ve taken pictures like these before for my “Sprinkle of Ruby and Jasmine” post (here). It brings the focus on the main object (and less on my messy room 😂).
The technique to get pictures like those – oh btw, I took these with my low quality iPhone 5s – I sit in front of the window with no lights in the room, besides from the daylight coming through the window. 

Here’s the thing about taking pictures in daylight with and without a window in-between: 

By having a window as a middle-object, the direct natural light will be shine on you indirectly. The indirect natural light is more diffused/soft compared to the direct light. Also the soft light will mainly hit the front object (in this case your face) and make you look brighter than the background. 
I’m obviously no expert on photography skills, but this is what I’ve found out while taking pictures. It also explains why the car-selfies has better lightening 😂. 

To end this post, I’ll reveal that I won’t be posting any of those pictures I took until I’ve posted them on instagram. I’ve been so bad at posting things at the same time, mainly because I have my pictures ready-made for weeks. Whereas the posts on my blog just goes on whenever I’m done writing them or get the time to publish them -.-.
I’ll try my best to be better at the post-timing. ♥
