Photopost: Leather

I’m currently 20 years old, which means I am really an adult now. I can no longer hide behind the fact of still being in my teens. It also means I now behave mature, which I proved once again by how I handled finding a huuuuge spider on my bedroom wall yesterday evening, when I wanted to go to bed.

I didn’t scream for my mum or dad to come and get rid of it. No, I decided I was a big girl and I could handle this on my own. Which is why I immediately reached for my big bottle of Syoss hairspray, extra hold and extra shine. I was always told hairspray stiffens spiders within seconds, which should make it easier to kill them. When I pointed the hairspray bottle to the spider, I suddenly hesitated. What if I sprayed the spider, it dropped from the wall and used its last strength to crawl under my closet?

So I decided to use the flat cap of the bottle to kill the spider immediately. It would be quicker, more effective, and I would not lose any hairspray, haha! Oh boy, was I wrong. As soon as I raised the bottle and brought it closer, the spider dropped from the wall and crawled into the direction of my bare feet. I nearly started to shriek, until I remembered my parents sleeping in the next room, so I only let out a surprised gasp (because I’m that mature, yes).

I still managed to spray the spider once before it turned around and hid under my closet (oh the irony). I haven’t seen it since, but I bet it has a healthy shine all over now.

I spent the remaining part of the night straight up in bed, cringing with every itch I felt on my legs. Because that’s also a part of being mature: being able to handle your own problems, even if they don’t go as expected.

Maybe I should try to toughen up a bit. I nearly slept on the couch last night, which is not really an indication of being mature or grown up. And what’s more tough than leather?

(So far the longest introduction I ever wrote on a photopost, but I really wanted to share my spider disaster with you all, haha)

Photopost: Tribal trend

I’m currently taking a break from my American Realism syllabus to munch on some rice waffles with white chocolate and to  entertain you darlings with another photopost!

I figured since I’ve been sitting in front of my desk all day, I could use some bright colours and patterns to cheer me up. And won’t you look at that, bright colours and patterns are totes amazing this summer! I’m obviously talking about the tribal trend. If you don’t know what I mean, shame on you, and quick, check out the pictures below:

(I should probably stop eating rice waffles right now, I’m trying to diet … Oh look is that yet another rice waffle between my lips? Oops.)

 

 

As usual, all pictures were found on Tumblr and Pinterest.

Aaaaaaaand one more rice waffle before I go back to my American Realism.

Photopost: Studs

As you may or may not have already noticed by reading my blog title, I’m a big fan of studs. I like the tough attitude that comes with studded items. You can imagine my excitement now studs are all hot and happening right now!

To get you guys some lovely studded inspiration (not only jackets can be accessorized with these metal pieces, you know), I decided to dedicate a photopost to the wonder of studs!

Photopost: Nail art

I was on Tumblr, searching for some cool nail art diys, and I found soooooo many stunning photos with nail arts ranging from ‘even-your-neighbour’s-toddler-can-do-this’ to ‘don’t-even-think-about-trying-you’ll-kill-us-all’. As my diy skills are actually quite similar to that neighbour’s toddler, I won’t even make an attempt. But I will show you the gorgeous discoveries I made!

I don’t really like nails that are waaay too long. If I can’t easily pick up my keys, it’s a no-go for me. And I’m also not a fan of all those accessories women stick to their nails. Flowers, fruits, plastic little toys? Doesn’t really look comfortable to me.
So which ones are your favourites? Some of them seem really easy to do, so easy that I might even try them out when I have the time. I’m also planning on buying a matte top coat, but so far all the ones I tried made the base colour fade. If anyone knows a good matte top coat, let me know!
