Amazing dress and new protection

I decided to try and be serious about you know, pictures and stuff, use the camera instead of the phone. But then I found out that I seem to have dropped my camera one too many times on the floor, because the quality wasn't really that much better! Which sucks, it used to be a really good camera..

Anyhow! I'm super psyched about this dress! It's from the swedish store Gina Tricot, and a while back they had this dress in pretty much every color there is, and I used to own it in lavender. Unfortunatly, due to it being my go-to dress during several years it had become so ratty I had to throw it away when I moved from Japan.. But fortunately there is loads of people who doesn't understand the greatness of this model of dresses, so theres bunches of them on auction sites! This became mine for 6SEK!(approx 100yen), + shipping! Can't argue with that, seeing how it's seemingly never been worn at all, haha. And you know, it being THE BEST DRESS MODEL OF ALL TIME. Of all time. That I tell you.

When we went to Strömsund, we also did the mandatory visit to tThe Dollarstore, which is exactly what it sounds like, a dollar store. I think it's exclusive to the north of Sweden, or atleast it used to be. It's basically the go to place if you want cheap anything.
Stumbled over this silicone case and I've been looking at similar ones online, but for more than double the price than this one was, haha.

Hopefully a silicone case will help protect my phone better, as mentioned above I have a tendency to drop electronics on the floor repeatedly, and after six months I just discovered the first crack in the screen..
It's amazing it's still intact though, seeing how I've dropped it multiple times a day since I got it..  Well, knock on wood that it wont fall apart on me.

Went to Strömsund the other day, and visited their red cross shop! It's really small but there's always something nice there haha.
The outfit of the day, + bonus cat!

Seemingly I'm back into buying platforms! I used to buy pretty much every pair I saw in thrift stores back in the days, but it was a long time ago! When I saw these though I just couldn't leave them.

I also found a pretty nice case for glasses, so now I can finally stop worrying about my sunnies!

Concert Friday

So yesterday we went to this band contest, where some local bands were playing. I didn't particularly like any of the bands, but its still nice to see live music once in a while! I haven't done that since I got back to Sweden..

I also made the flabbergasting discovery that it is indeed possible to wear makeup with glasses on! Wha-at? No, but I usually don't really do any makeup whenever I wear glasses, but yesterday was an exception!

So I'm back south for some "vacation", haha.
It's really nice to escape the dull country life for some town action, even though we don't really do much here either, but atleast you can do something if you feel like it!
So, yesterday we went to some local thrift stores! Unfortunately so did the rest of the town, so we didn't stay long.. I found a pretty nice cardigan tho!

Also, I'm gonna try to get back to posting outfit pictures again! Yesterday's was kinda dull though, but I'm only just starting to get back into it :)

Fought for parcel

Uhh, one of the things I dislike the most about my current place of living, is that due to it being in the middle of nowhere, parcels and stuff takes much longer to arrive. If the shop says 2-3days, it usually arrives within 5-10.. Even EMS, which I was really pissed about, I mean, I pay extra for speedy shipping, and then it takes almost a week longer than it's supposed to? And it isn't even delivered, we have to drive for half an hour to pick it up :(

Uhh, okay, enough ranting! Reason for the rant? I ordered from H&M!

As usual, the kitty&photo rule applies, if you try to take a picture of your cat, it runs away, if you try to take a picture of something else, suddenly: CAT!! (The cat in the picture is named Pentax, and it's because she loooves photobombing)

Nothing over the top whootiwhoot, but man! I'm so happy anyway!

The reason I ordered this (and the yumetenbo order, tho it was partly my birthday present to myself), is as a reward. For what? Weight loss. 
When I moved to Japan and started living with my roomie, he introduce me to his decadent eating habits, which of course resulted in a considerable weight gain for me, since I don't have the metabolism of a young man :( And all that white rice. Every day, white rice galore.
That's pretty much the reason why I suddenly stopped wearing light colors, and opted for dark shades. I just felt like the michelin man, and since I moved to Sweden I just didn't feel like dressing up at all, because everything was unflattering and impossible and after a while I just stopped trying.

So, in about January I decided to stop moping around being unhappy about myself, and just do it. Since then, I've lost almost 10kgs! I've actually only lost 9, but I hurried the reward for this time to combine it as a reward for doing two essays and being a total boss on two math tests, haha.
So, I get myself a reward for every lost 5kgs, just something, not running out buying a car or anything.

There's still quite a bit to go till I'm around my desired weight, and I can't really say I see any difference in the mirror(that's why progress pics are a godsend!), I still feel like dressing up more often. Of course I tend to ragequit in the midst of dressing because of reasons, but I still manage to put something together, put on some god damn full make up with lashes n all, style my hair and go out. Allthough my outfits are a mess right now, I'm torned between light colors and dark colors, and those parts of my wardrobe doesn't really match.. Oh well, I'll figure it out! 

Long entry about uninteresting things, but.. well.

Hong kong and Paris

No, not traveling, merely the new nail polishes I bought.
I'm starting to believe I am the only one buying nail polishes around here, because the display seems untouched every time I go there, haha.
But that's nice too, I don't have to be afraid of my favourite shades selling out!

School is taking up most of my time lately, but thankfully it'll be over in may.

New bag!

Spring is seemingly on it's way! The temperature has been above zero for almost a week now, and you can start seeing asphalt even here up north! Finally!

Inspired by the warmer weather and the thought of upcoming spring, I made a bag the other day! I'm kind of pleased with it. Crocheting is way fun!
