A piece of philosophy: "The definition for normal is that there is no definition for it. What a paradox that is."
Hello again, everyone!
It has been a while since the last time I found time to update my blog. I'm truly apologizing for that, but as many of my friends already know, I take my studies quite seriously and want to do my best with them (education is the first priority for me). I have been spending quite a lot of time abroad and travelled in many countries, especially in Holland and the city where I'm moving into June the 7th: Amsterdam.
And why did I decide to move to Amsterdam? Well, it's quite simple: I fell in love and want to live closer to the person who has turned my world into something so much brighter and beautiful. However, packing is causing me loads of headache.. How can one person have this much stuff everywhere!? I need to buy more suitcases, because four isn't enough if one of the biggest luggage is filled by shoes only and one is filled with jewellery, accessories and make up.
Me is in trouble, guys. :')
This is supposed to be only a short update with few pics taken recently. I'm quite busy and have lots of things to do (writing 8 essays, reading 4 thick books for school, 7 exams from which one is 3hour exam, one 4 hour exam and 5 two hour exam (maths, Finnish language, physics, chemistry, Swedish language, other maths and psychology), doing my art works, sewing - working, packing, arranging one almost 50 people lolita meeting held in few weeks, helping several people out in different things, meeting my friends, taking care of my own health etc. etc....). I'm about to have an another burn out very soon if I don't have any vacation in the near future. On the worst days I'm working 21 hours a day with school and everything which isn't a good sign. That's one of the main reasons why I haven't posted any pictures recently: I don't have time to wear lolita because, as a sort of a perfectionist, I want my hair, make up and outfits to be spot on and that takes lots of time, naturally.
So, here are the pics:
Pictures taken by Natalie Shau:
(THIS is the real colour of my eyebrows - as you can see, they are very white. I dyed my hair back to blonde after this photoshoot because I wasn't satisfied with this shade.)
(Even my skinny arms and legs used to be something to bully of when I was in elementary school...)
Then, few pics that I took one morning (or night to be exact) while packing my things at home - as you can see I was in the middle of packing some stuff from the kitchen:
(Underneath all my thick make up I'm such a babyface - it's actually very unusual for an extremely skinny and very tall (over than 6ft) girl to have as round cheeks as I do. Some people have said that I look like a five-year-old. Haha. However, I'm not saying that it's a bad thing to have a cute childish face It's actually quite hard to make very sharp face cute and soft, but with the right kind of a make-up cute and round face can be transformed into something very edgy. Notice that many Japanese lolitas, and women in general, look so cute partly because of their round cheeks. It's a generic thing - Nordic people have round cheeks and higher fat percentage even when it comes to skinny people because of the cold climate --- evolution. Finnish people actually herit from the same area with Koreans, for example.)
(I can't help it: I love long black fake nails - unfortunately, I cannot wear them so often because of my work and studies. Oh, and my favourite cup on the right side of the picture which says "Neron kuppi - näitä ei nuijille edes myydä"/translation: "The cup of a genius - these aren't even sold to dumbasses" My computer programmer friends bought this cup to me as a gift when I taught them some HTML coding.)
(For your lulz: Me in my pajamas. Sorry for the very bad lighting.)
Then, about the commissions:
Due to the fact that I'm always so busy with my studies and work, I won't be taking many commissions from people in the future. Instead I will sew and make the clothes beforehand and sell them on EGL comm sales afterwards. I will be letting everyone know when I put something on sale there, hopefully few hats find their ways to the sales already. :)
P.S. I'm having a trip to Paris with my boyfriend next month. Any recommendations for restaurants, cafés etc.? BABY's store is a must, of course.
I will answer your comments as soon as possible. Thank you for those. <3
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
