2 days left



So I'm leaving to Latvia on Monday, but I have so much stuff to do before it! I need to learn 50 chapters from my french book til Sunday, cause my dad decided to personally test me when I failed to find intensive courses for the summer. Also got to pack everything for 24 days. My sister took some sunny pictures of me today. That was my first band t-shirt by the way, haha. I actually sleep in it sometimes. Again sorry for the weird poses. I actually wanted to write the goodbye-for-a-while post now, but I figured I'll probably still post on the weekend, before the vacation.

Plastic smile to match your style

Okay, nothing special here today! Just some pics my sister took randomly of me.. and my dog ?! She (dog) really needs to get a life, she's always following me.. Like I walk, she walks. Then I stop, and she stops too!
Anyways, this was one of the outfits I wore at the photoshoot(minus the UGG-like house shoes haha). The other was a LBD :) It went really good, because the photographer was a really fun guy. I'm leaving next Monday, but I think I'll have the pictures by then and will probably post them, cause, well personally, I really liked them! Oh, I also got a new bed, it's in the background of the picture. And I'm still pretty much in agony from all the positions I had to do today for the shooting.
PS. sorry for that I'm always writing so much. just got a lot to say. my sister painted my dogs nails red, you can see it on the picture :O and my twitter name is misskristy24 (wow how original :b)

Below : my bling tunnel :D I'm recently wondering if I should take it out, but then I always come to the conclusion that I'll leave it for all the hard work and pain it has taken me :( (10mm) I think it's pretty hot, but sometimes I just wanna wear long earrings..

My wardrobe!

Since I don't know what to post, I took some pictures of my wardrobe haha. I think it's quite big, but don't be fooled - i don't go shopping every day, I've been the same size since I was like 13, so I keep a lot of clothes/shoes that I still like! I got around 30 pairs of shoes, but in my wardrobe I only keep the ones I don't wear so much or not at all! In the right wardrobe, I hang tops, dresses and jumpers, and in the bottom drawers I keep trousers/skirt/shorts/leggings and tops that aren't easy to hang :) In the left wardrobe I hang any jackets with a zip or buttons, below that I keep scarves and underwear, under that are my bags, under the bags are the shoes I don't wear :)

Ohh by the way tomorrow I'll be having a real photoshoot! Yepp. My first. Wish me luck. Will also probably post my outfit picture tomorrow :p PS. got twitter! Follow me :D

queen

Some pictures me and my mum took of each other this morning! PS. had a great night yesterday, met such lovely new people :)

This very nice person called Nikio emailed me asking me to look at their online store called Queen's Wardrobe, and give my my opinion/advice! So I went to the store, and wow it's impressive! The design alone is amazing. The clothing is modern and so cute, I dig the jeans&leggings section especially. The prices aren't high, and each item has all of its exact measurements written, so you can't go wrong with the size. Make sure you pay a visit and perhaps even order something!

Birthday wishlist

I know my birthday is in more than 2 months (24 September), but I really wanted to make a wishlist on polyvore haha. By the way, I don't think I ever wrote my age on my blog. I know a lot of you already know it, but those who don't - wanna have a guess? :P
Here's the wishlist! Some of those things aren't exactly what I want, for example the military jacket, I just want some random military jacket, not specifically this one! And I believe some of these items aren't in stock anymore.

1 Guess Maeve boots - forget that post where I said I'm not quite sure. I'm officially in love.
2 American Apparel light blue shorts
3 Military Button Front Jacket from an online shop called www.ardenb.com (randomly found it on polyvore)
4 Dorothy Perkins leopard heart shaped sunglasses
5 Cheap Monday High Waisted - it's been more than a year since my last Cheap Mondays oO
6 Professional camera - haven't chosen which one yet. Any suggestions?
7 Topshop pink heart shaped sunglasses
8 Miss Selfridge denim playsuit
9 Juicy Couture lipstick charm
10 H&M wedges
11 Miss Selfridge navy military dress - i'd cut it a bit shorter though!
12 Miss Selfridge denim dress - i'd wear it with a belt
13 Money money money!
14 Topshop boots - woahh
15 Candy! - especially love these 2 types :)
16 Topshop peep toe boot - woahhhhhhhhhh!
17 Subscriptions to Cosmopolitan, Glamour and Seventeen
18 A floral dress/tunic
19 American Apparel stripe thigh-high socks
20 American apparel thigh-highs

I know I'm definetely NOT getting all of these things, but I hope for at least some! Or if any of my readers are generous (A) joking haha.

Dress2

So I've almost finished it! I just need to fix some things on the bottom of the dress, and then it's ready to wear. But I took some pictures anyway. Man, I'm struggling with my camera. Such bad quality in certain lights. Can't wait for my birthday (24 September). Will ask for a professional camera. By the way, I've come up with a theory as to why some people reply on their own blogs, even if the commenter has a blog (it really annoys me, as i already said it earlier), so my theory is that those people are desperate for more comments :P which is kinda sad, when you see their blog full of their own comments. I also hate when people just comment the outfit, and never read the texts. Or when they just write 'cute outfit'. Kinda impersonal, no? Anyway here are the pictures.

(just to make it clear - my underwear isn't showing, it's the dress from the other side!)

Mascara

I decided to do a little make-up post today. On my last blog (skyblog xD), I received literally 100s of comments from girls asking what mascara I use and on tips how to make eyelashes bigger. So I decided that I should put up some good mascaras. I think eyes are the most important part of the face, and in order not to look too simple I try to make my eyelashes as long as possible. I've tried soo many mascaras during the last years, but most of them were really bad. There are only 4 that were really good from the ones I tried, and wanna recommend to people who want to try a new mascara but don't know which one :P

Clinique high impact mascara. I think this one is the BEST one I've used. The brush isn't huge and it makes my eyelashes so long. It doesn't dry out fast either :)

Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express mascara. It was reeaallllyyy good, except for the huge brush, which made smears on the skin around eyes, but that wasn't a problem because I wiped them off with ear picks.

DiorShow black out mascara. It was really expensive but worth the money! The brush wasn't huge (no smears), and made my eyelashes really big!

Maybelline Volum' Express Lift up mascara. It's not expensive at all, and it was also one of the best I tried! Recommend it to everyone! Also it has a really nice smell!


Now some little mascara tips:
  • If you don't want your mascara to dry quickly, just take a tissue and put it over the opening, every time you use it! Because when the tissue covers it, it can't dry so fast.
  • As I already said before, if you get mascara smears from big brushes just use an ear pick/ear plug (whatever the name) to wipe them off, so easy
  • I always put a transparent mascara on as a base, and then use an eyelash curler. I don't know how but it makes eyelashes appear longer.
  • If your eyelashes are really on the short side, you can always search a white base mascara. I had one some years ago, I just made my eyelashes white with it, and then colored them black with the normal mascara!
  • If your mascara has dried out, you can put your mascara in boiling water for 5-10 minutes, and the dried mascara will melt up, and you will be able to use it again a few times.
  • NEVER EVER buy mascaras that have a hard brush! Like the plastic kind. Here's some pictures of what I mean for example these two mascaras both have those hard plastic kind of brushes. I think that the 'hairy' soft brushes are much better!
That's all, hope it helps :)

Tiramisu and new shoes

I know I already bought new shoes last weekend, and ordered some others more than a week ago, but I couldn't resist these, when I was shopping with my mum. They were so cheap! Not telling how much, but I'm sure some of you know it anyway haha. So I told my mum I want these as a part of my name day's present, and the rest will be money (very helpful when it comes to saving money for shopping in latvia!)
___________________________________
I also got some sad news. As some of you may know, I'll be in Latvia from the 3rd to the 27th of August, but I'll have no internet then so I won't be able to blog, but I'll do loaaads of shopping, take loooads of pictures, and the best is that I'll get to meet some old friends, possibly a re-union with my old class from primary school! So when I'll be back, I'll have a lot of updates, for sure. But that's around 2 weeks away, so I'm still blogging haha.

Just so you know - I don't kiss dogs on mouth, yuck. It was only for the picture.
Thanks to Ida for featuring me on her blog. So sweet!

desperate

I really want some high heeled lace up boots for winter! Like sort of alternative looking but still thin, and with a heel for the more feminine look.. Perhaps something like this but not exactly (she is so beautiful by the way, i love all her looks). I just don't know where to get any like that. Certainly not in Luxembourg. The ones I'm searching, I want them to be tough looking but at the same time feminine. I also like the Guess Maeve boots, but also those aren't exactly perfect. Perhaps something between the Guess boots and the ones the girl is wearing. If you know any sites with boots like that, please help? As the title says: desperate haha

Here's a picture of the Guess Maeve boots I found on google

Today

Hell yes. Mando Diao and Prodigy and Enter Shikari(again). Oh, and my total addictions - Cosmo and Glamour.
AND.
I wanna say thanks to my friend who featured me on their blog! The blog is mostly concentrated on shoes, and is full of good looking celebrities and regular girls. Here's the link. And if you want to see the post with me, then click here.

God, it annoys me so badly when I write a comment a blog with a question or something that I wanna know, and the person responds on their own blog! It's not like I'm gonna come back and check each time, you know, have some respect.

Glasses

I decided that I don't put enough pictures on my blog though, so here are some retarded webcam pictures of me, trying to look like a teacher or something with my glasses haha. I really like my glasses (they're D&G, with some bling at the sides and leopard print on the inside), but only feel comfortable with them in class or at home.

Favicon

As you can all see, I've added a favicon (at the top of my page, the little icon before the URL). I didn't really know what picture to put there, I didn't really have anything special that I wanted, I just needed to get rid of that gross orange blogger symbol haha. So I wanted to ask your thoughts about my little lipstick? What do you think? Is it too fat? Or is the pink part too short? (I keep thinking about these things, cause that's how it seems to me).. Probably as soon as I get a better idea, i'll make a new one, cause it litterally takes less than 5 minutes to draw this! Anyways, I better go now, it's 1 AM, and I really should get some early sleep tonight ;)

Keep your thing in your pants

I forgot to mention that I went to see Katy Perry last night! The show was really great, and she was being so friendly all the time, and giving out cherry chapsticks and throwing big strawberry balloons into the crowd haha! Though her voice was kinda disappointing, she didn't sing as good as in her songs, and sometimes I couldn't really understand the rhythm/melody of the song cause she couldn't sing it that way. Here's some pictures.

What about these?



Should I order these? Or the black ankle boots in the previous post? I can't choose, cause I love both..
