Upside down frenchie?

I can't recall what this type of design is called right now, but anyway. This is a great party look. I've seen gold glitter is very popular, but I don't have that actually so silver it is!
If you find troubles doing these freehand, you can use those french tip sticker thingies you often get if you buy a French manicure package. Or you can make three dots and follow them to create the line. Fill it in with what ever colour you want, but glitter is almost a must have! It makes the look a lot more interesting and popping.

Polishes used; China Glaze: Liquid Leather, Matte Magic top coat. SV top coat on the glitter, NailTek base and a glitter polish of some kind.. Read more

China Glaze Lemon Fizz

Lemon Fizz! A yellow delight from the China Glaze, Up and away collection. I used three coats on getting a somewhat good coverage and it is a little tricky to work with. But that won't pull down the quality of this colour. I love it!

It seems like the pics gets a worse quality when I upload them here. That sucks. Read more

Another easy to do freehand nailart. I did my base colour in the dark, so it's a little messy, and don't judge my bow to the left! lol, I had just exercised so I was shaking. Went to bed and did the rest the following morning. Clever me.

My last Q's

Not sure how helpful it is, but atleast you might get an idea about which ones you've done. The one that surprised me the most have to be in Feralas, Dire Maul quest. I've run DM sooo many times, but it seems like I skipped the last quest in the chain the guy on the patteo gives out.

So I finally got Loremaster (of Kalimdor). And I didn't do AQ quests, or the last chain in the tier 0.5 questline. I will try to make maps over where I found my last q's, maybe it will help someone. Good luck if you're working on this ach :) Pst: Don't believe people saying this is easy. You go "woah, that wasn't that hard" when you're done. But you want to bite your fingers off while you're missing the last 30.

Avoid acne, 10 tips

Since I've been struggling with acne since I was 12-13 years old, I've had time to snatch up tips on how to avoid them as much as possible. I look bad now, but it's mostly the red scars that makes my skin look like crap.
You will experience breakouts through your life, and the few amount of people with normal skin can experience the skin changing and get adult acne too.

  1. Do not use harsh products on your skin (toothpaste, rubbing alcohol, mouth wash, exfoliating every day, often use of benzyl preoxide etc). You're most likely going to end up with a very unbalanced and perhaps even sensitive skin over time. The zits might dry up in the beginning, but it won't solve all the underlying problems.
  2. Always read the labels on your moisturisers and check online if any of the ingredients are pore clogging (comedogenic). You can choose products that says "non-comedogenic", but this doesn't mean all the ingredients are good for you. Research is key. Even if you have oily skin, you will benefit from a good moisturiser. High oil production - more pores clogged. Moisture added from a cream - lower oil production - less impurities.
  3. Change your pillowcase every 3 days or so. You sweat during the night and rub off lotions etc, so it's bacteria heaven.
  4. Change you face towel every 3 day as well, for same reasons. Remember to pat dry, if you wipe or rub, the chance of spreading bacteria's from infected areas is very high.
  5. Do not exfoliate when you have mature zits. This will also spread the bacteria if you happen to pop it while scrubbing. But remember to exfoliate once a week to remove dead skin cells. Dead skin cells - clogged pores.
  6. Check with your doctor if you have any allergies or candida. Eating things you're allergic to can show off on your skin, very badly. Eating healthy is important no matter what troubles you have or don't have, but try to avoid white and fast carbohydrates. High amount of sugar can also kick out on a lot of people.
  7. Do not touch your face! Stop picking! You have the power to stop damnit! During the day, you are prone to have more bacteria on your fingers then on your toilet. You wouldn't rub your face against the toilet, would you?
  8. Avoid getting dirty hair in your face. Pin away your bangs when you sleep.
  9. Exercise and fresh air never hurts.
  10. Cleanse and moist the skin twice a day.

Batiste dry shampoo (brunette) review

Earlier this week there was a sale on Batiste dy shampoo's. Originally I was gonna buy Tropical only, and I wanted the Diva one. But noo the damn lady behind the counter made me buy this one, eventhou I'm not really that dark of a brunette. Anyway. 37,- NOK is a bargain.

The shampoo part of this really works, it absorbs all the excess oil and makes your hair feel fresh. Absolutely excellent for those of us that get sticky hair between washes, even if it's just 24hrs. It gives that "newly cleaned" volume, no more and no less.
The colour isn't BANG brown, the spray looks a little grey? on my hair. Might be because of my roots are browngreyish (actually, I'm classified as a dark blonde. Pale black? Boring colour). But be aware if you're wearing makeup. I got some of this on my forehead without noticing it, and with my pale skin I almost looked like a dalmatian. It's easy to wipe off thou.
Over to the smell.. Now.. The first thing it reminded me of was: bimbos. It's like a "sweet-self-tanner perfume". Not really anything for me, but it does smell good.

I highly recommend dry shampoos for men! But buy the original one so you avoid the sweet girly smell. If you're tired of your hair looking dull and greasy after a day, or perhaps your husbands hair. Spray him down with this, it does have some hold so you can shape the hair to look gohoood and fresh. Really guys. Just.. Spray. That cap/hat whatever you hide your hair with, will only encourage your hair to drop to the floor. Yes, fall off! We don't want that now, do we? The hair needs air. Oh, it rimes.

Update: The water in my shower turned into a gross dirty brown. I forgot I had used this product and went "yuuuuukkk how can I be this dirty?!". lol

Celestial Steed

Oh hurray! It's finally in the Blizzard store. It can be yours for 20 (where's that crab sign.. Okey I found it, but not the combination on how to use it. lol! *copy paste*) €. Yeah. That's about 159NOK, and you will get it on all your chars and future chars. Also works as a lvl 20 mount. I feel so leet running around on my mage with it.

The only negative I've found so far is:

1. Everybody have him, but he's still cool.
2. When he swim, he fly..
3. He doesn't put his wings out to "glide" when he fall.
I call him "he" because he is like Pegasus, and I consider a horse from Gods as a he. Idk why.

You won't get any achievements for buying it, but I'm hoping they will add that if they ever take the mount out of the Blizzard store. Read more

Boo and Goomba!

Last night I was talking to a mate about Nintendo and super Mario and Mario party. So today I was still thinking about good old Mario, and my toes are painted blue. It didn't really look any good, so I painted the creatures Boo and Goomba on my toes!

Turned out quite fun ;)

Hunter, cataclysm preview!

Read it here:

I'm so excited! Especially over Cobra Shot and more pet slots. It's nice to see BM's getting a little boost again.
And Camouflage, aaah.. There is new hope of surviving.

Seche Vite

I'm sorry for putting buy-pressure on you, but if you've ever had trouble with nailpolish using ages on drying, getting cracks while drying, or even pattern from fabric you've leaned on.. This is the stuff you need.

"Seche VITE™ Dry Fast Top Coat is widely acknowledged as the world's finest top coat. Its patented formula penetrates through the nail lacquer to the base coat forming a single solid coating over the nail plate for a much more durable finish, guaranteed not to yellow and leaves nails silky, stronger and resistant to chipping and peeling."

It has a little jellylike formula, and it really feels like it combines all the layers into one resisting coat. It's also good to use as a glue for small splits in the nail, as an emergency solution. Easy to apply and a great brush.

China Glaze, Re-fresh Mint

This is the minty green polish from China Glaze's "Up and Away" collection. The formula on this lacquer is a little on the thick side, but still easy to apply and only needs two coats for a full coverage.
I like it alot, it's bright and delicious if I may say so. Creamy pastel, perfect for spring and summer.

Swatch in daylight with matte lacquer topcoat on the pinkie:

I'm testing: Zumba

Corny, I know. But since it keeps getting more popular in my country, I had to try it. I love dancing and shaking my ass. If you don't, Zumba ain't for you.

I looked through the first DVD, alright. It looked simple enough. I skipped the part-for-part learn the moves stuff and jumped straight on the 20min express workout, a lil' dare devil. Lawl.
Well, it starts and ends very easy for me. I've never really been good at hip hop dancing, so that part was difficult for me. The salsa on the other hand *thumbs up*. The workout is divided in 5min of each style, but don't worry. It will keep you moving all the time.
Reminds me, I tried hip hop-freestyle when I was younger. Hah! What a show..
Anyway. If you really put some effort in it (shake, jump and move), it's actually a good workout. Although, people keep talking about how they feel it in their abs. I don't. My stomach isn't really that weak either thou. So don't expect too much from this dancing, it's just a fun cardio.
I don't recommend wearing running shoes, I ended up taking them off. I guess finding my aerobics shoes won't be a bad idea! Black marks on the wooden floor incoming.

Edit: I can't do this more then one 20min express workout a week. A total kneekiller this, so be aware if you have weak knees. Read more

April's fools Blizzard Style


Kinda cute. And I actually fell for the " Equipment Potency EquivalencE Number ", seeing that alot of people actually use gearscore to determine if you're good enough or not. I guess it's their own way of mocking gearscore ;)
