Autumn - A new chapter

It's only 4 days left of August. Which means autumn is here, for sure. 
I always feel like autumn is a new beginning, almost like a new year! The fresh and crispy air makes in the mornings makes me think of first school days. 
For the first time in 3 years this autumn really will be a new beginning for me. I'm not coming back to anything. I will meet new people and learn new routines.

This year has so far really been a rollercoaster. It has been rough, I have quit from 2 jobs, I have worried and been so stressed out. But this summer I have been so happy. It was the best. I worked in a storebakery and it was just as amazing as I hoped for. Making pastrys and cakes for a living? What a dream, didn't even feel like a job most of the days. 


But now summer is ending, everyone is back from vacation and I have left the bakery to the usual bakers. I have taken the offer to work at a schoolkitchen, just 10 minutes from my home. I really wanted to do something else, because it feels like I'm stuck on this career path where I'm chopping up vegetables, wiping tables and doing dishes. But my brain told me that I did work at a schoolkitchen 3 years ago, and it was my favourite kitchen, maybe this can be as nice :)
And there is always a possibility to keep looking which I absolutely are doing. 

Right now I really hope that this autumn will be a new chapter.
A chapter without the stress.

Mermaid

I'm still obsessed about mermaids since that entry I wrote a while ago, and yesterday I started to watch a serie called Mako Mermaids because of that! It's so good and today I was so inspired I just had to have a mermaidsession!

I went a little crazy in photoshop :'D



It would be so fun to go on a party or something dressed as a mermaid! <3 I don't have anything to wear that could be a "tail", but I'm thinking about sewing something.

Lashes

I have a plan to wear long fake eyelashes on the next larp because it suits the character, so today I tried a pair I have at home to "practise", I really need that, haha! Both for learning how to put them on and also to be more comfortable and used to wearing them. 
And it's so pretty! I can totally understand people who wear this everyday. I took the opportunity for a photosession with my new little lace umbrella. Also bought for next larp :D

Isn't the umbrella so cute and tiny? <3

10 things

10 things you might not know about me!



1. I don't like to stay up after midnight. Honestly I prefer if I can sleep before 10! If I do stay up longer than midnight the whole day after is ruined.

2. When I get too hungry I get very mad for no reason. My husband knows this so he is prepared and never fight back with me, he just start looking around for some food :'D



3. Jobs are a very stressful thing for me. There are so many jobs I would like to try that I'm really afraidto never be satisfied in anything. Jobs I for example still would like to work as: librarian, actor, radio host, priest, physiotherapist, journalist and personal trainer.

4. On my birthday 3 years ago I got these earrings from my sister. They came with a note about how this specific stone is supposed to give you strenght and courage. So now I always wear them when I feel I need a boost!



5. Tv-series is my guilty pleasure. I follow around 23 at the same time, but I'm always looking for more. I think I just love that freedom from my own problems. So that's why I prefer shows where the people are rich, beautiful and theirs problems are fairly small. :P

6. Candy or icecream is often the first thing I eat in the morning. It's mostly because I tend to be a little bit hungry, but we have breakfast at my job, so I just grab something yummy so I can work until that.



7. I can read very fast. I don't have to read every word to get the information I need so people tend to be very surprised at how many books I can read in a very short amount of time.

8. I have a hard time accepting adultlife. I can't understand people who are totally happy with how the world is built with all this working, cleaning, thinking, planning and stressing. It sort of feels like a circle that goes round and round and never gets easier. I always have the feeling that it's gotta be more than this? But I can't find out what and how to fix it.


9. I hate being home alone. I always hear these couples who loves their freetime from their spouses and actually ENJOYS when the other person spends the night somewhere else? We have lived together for 9 years and I still don't feel that. Everything is less fun when my husband is not at home. And sleeping alone really sucks. 

10. I like to put food on peoples plates..this might sound very weird but I have been like this for as long as I can remember! I always wanted to put my familys food on their plates and I mostly do it for guests and my husband. I think it's some kind of controlthing, I can do it better, haha!


If anyone want to do an entry like this I would love to read it :D

Real life mermaids

I can't belivie I haven't heard of this before, but yesterday I read an article about mermaids!
It's about people who are so fascinated by them, so they dress up as mermaids when they go swimming, in custommade tails that are made for swimming. It sounds wonderful and they are so pretty!



I have seen before that in some countries you can work as a mermaid, but I didn't know it was a acitivity a lot of people do on their sparetime. There are even mermaidconventions! 


I am really inspired by this. I can't even swim because of different reasons, one of them are my aquaphobia. 
I really have a goal for this autumn, to visit the local bath more with my husband so he can continue to learn me how to swim! :D
Not so I can start dressing like a mermaid instantly but because reading about that hobby and all really made me want to experience how it could be to really swim around in water! 
I imagine it must feel very liberating?

Tiaras

Violette did an entry about her new tiara! And then I started to miss mine so I "dusted" them off for some pictures. 

This is a good one because it makes the hair more fluffy while wearing it!

Fantasy-tiara, I had it on a few larps.

Black with pink diamonds!

This is the most princessy one, I really like it though it's so simple.

I really loooooved tiaras when I was around 17. I used to wear one everyday. Even if I don't use them anymore I don't feel like I want to sell them.
Which one is the prettiest and do you like tiaras as a accessory? :D

Outfit and the jeans of my dreams

Omg I feel so lucky right now :'D I have been searching for years after striped jeans in black and white. I have tried in several stores, googled and looked second hand but nothing was ever my size. 
I finally found them on the swedish Ebay site! I wasn't sure about the size this time either because it was one larger than I usually have. But they fit perfectly! Such material happiness! 



This is my outfit from yesterday. I pretend it's autumn. It's actually too hot right now to wear outfits like this :(
