Early mornings

Off to fake-work soon. *Yaaawn*
The fake-work that is soon going to be a real job! :D 
I got some more info from the unemployment office - After 3 months this "practise"-thingy is going to turn into a real job, I will be hired for 6 months or 1 year so that I can start a thingy at A-kassan. Swenglish warning.
When I have collected this amount on A-kassan - and then get unemploeid again - I will still get money to survive, yay!

A not-so-late afternoon the other week <3

Project: Bleach/lighten your hair with honey - part 2

It was hell washing that crap out! The honey and olive oil, that is. I never had issues washing out olive oil before... I blame the honey!
I first forgot the chamomile-rinse, so I used it after my hair was already towel-dry. And then I dried it again... with a wet towel. -Did not like- xD

Today when my hair is dry I can see the result. And it worked! :D Not by much, but I will use it many times more.

The before and after pics are pretty crappy, since the light is not the same.

Before (One month ago)
My haircolor has washed out a little since then, but not much...

It's almost like there is green-ish "highlights"?

 After - In proper daylight
The green-ish highlights are actually light brown! All of my hair was coppery before the honey, since I have been coloring it with henna before.

Very pleased with the result! I didnt think it would do any difference on the first try.
My hair got a bit dry from the lemon juice I think... there is knots everywhere! :P

Project: Bleach/lighten your hair with honey

I havent even colored my hair black yet, and I still had time to change my mind! Wat? :O
I am now trying to get my real haircolor back. Boredom = experimenting! And also, I might want to get dreadlocks again.... I know, right! xD My darling, Catta, said she would take a shovel and smack it in the back of my head... as if that would help! Lol.

So, I have colored my hair 3 times with henna, one of those times with a "Lush Caca Brun", wich has indigo in it. So to get my own, original haircolor back - dirty dark blonde - might be a pain in the ass.
(Bleaching with chemicals is a last resort!)

Right now I'm sitting here with honey & olive oil in my hair. I took equal parts of those ingredients, microwaved it for 15 sec and then mixed it with a fork. Took some time to get the oil in there, but it turned into a smooth paste at last. :)
There is literally honey & oil all over my head and face. It's like henna - IT'S EVERYWHERE!
The things you do for your hair. ^^ Going to let it sit for 1,5-2 hours.
Lighten your hair this way takes a lot of time and many, many applications. I have a chamomile tea mix downstairs also, to rinse with. But first - schampoo! Honey is very sticky.
The chamomile mix is tea, lemon juice & honey. Mix however you want. Chamomile tea and lemon juice are also things that lighten your hair naturally.

Excuse the food-stuffz in the back. :P

Stuff from - All natural and ecofriendly :)

Finally my order arrived at the door! It was sent to me for free because they could'nt deliver it to the place I wanted them to. :D Very nice of them. Next time I'll have to go get it in the town next to us though. ^^

So! Soon I'm all natural. :) I've read so much crap about chemicals they put in "normal" schampoos, soaps etc. It's scary. Anyway, the only thing I'm missing now is make-up and perfume. I rarely use perfume because everything you put on your body already smells good. But there are some perfume-oils that I want to get my hands on, one of them smells like wild passion fruit. :)

The goodie bag
(Lotion, smells like forest)
(3 soaps for ze shower)
(Olive oil soap, for testing, works as hair conditioner for some people)
(Aleppo soap for my hair, the smell is not that great) xD
(Crystal deodorant, hope it wokrs!)
(Nettle Schampoo for dandruff, mom and sis are trying this one) 

I cleaned the whole bathroom, so much crap!
A new jar for random stuff, with a black glittery ribbon. :)
(The old "jar" for random stuffs was a plastic mug. Not that pretty.)

 My two new friends. :) The Aleppo soap is very green, wich I find a bit strange... it should be more greenish-beige with a dark green core? Well, the name of it, and the ingredients, are correct, so I hope it works the same magic as the original Aleppo does. ^^

A fifth World of Warcraft expansion!

I knew it would be about Outland again because everyone loves The Burning Crusade. :) The absolute best thing about this is the remodel of the characters! Finally we get normal eyes and fingers! This will come out sometime in 2014. Probably after the summer, or even after fall.

Pics borrowed from Blizzard, World of Warcraft - Warlords of Draenor. Here you can read and look at some of the changes. Including some of the remodels! And trailers! Cant wait to see the female Night Elf, Draenei and Human remodels! :)

This time I'll buy the collectors edition, never done that before & for once, I will. Of course I still need a new gaming computer and a mouse and a... Yeah.

The new Alliance capital is beautiful and it is always night time there. <3

When you look at these before & after pics, 
you clearly see how crappy they have been looking all along. xD

Diet news!
I measured my body before starting this diet, or before failing at it, lol... and I have lost 2 cm around the waist. And almost 2 cm around my thighs. I'm happy, :D because I have been eating candy like a ************!
(Diet: 3 days - Candy and crappy food: 5 days - Diet: 2 days - Candy and crappy food: 4 days)
So yes, I'm happy for those results. And now that I'm finished with candy and other crap, I will get good results I think. ^^

Yet another new start

I read a little more about the diet "LCHF" on ze internetz and it turns out I have been eating bad stuffz. :D Haha, so I started over... again. 
No fruit, no fruit yoghurt, less milk (if I want to loose weight) etc. And much more fat! I cant remember everything when I'm sitting here writing, but when I look in the kitchen I know what not to eat atleast! :P
Did you know that peanuts are not actually nuts? They're more like seeds. No good for LCHF'ers.
And I learned how to make "milk" out of eggs, for my coffee, have not tried it yet though.

Tonights' sunset.
Everything else is gray and that is what makes it beautiful.

 2 min later...

Longing for even colder weather, frost and snow.

Thanks Laura for tagging me btw. :) One day I will parcitipate, one day!

A few more Second Hand findings!

...and a little life update. :)
((I hope the "job-agency" doesnt screw this one up. They were a bit unclear with some stuffz.))
Anyway! I'm expecting a call this friday, to book an appointment with a nice lady. She is going to be my new support-person at a new place. There I will practise-work for 3 months, and then, if I got the info right, I will be offered a job!(!!!) Or education and then a job! Yeah... I'm not really sure how it works, but it gets me a JOB! Finally!
I will be able to try out some of the things I love the most - caring for animals at a farm <3 and learn how to properly restore old furniture. I'm super excited! :D
All this will start in 1-2 weeks, if all goes according to plans.

I'd like to blog more often than I do, but I'm just too lazy... and I have other stuff to think about at the moment. :) I still want to move to the north. But if I get this job I will be able to save up for many things needed, both now and for a long distance-move. ^^

My cave-man-diet didnt work out. Well, for a couple of weeks it did. But I got tired of not beeing able do eat and drink milk, cheese, yoghurts etc.
So now, since 9 days back (woho!), I'm on LCHF. Suits me perfect! I do very well without bread and potatoes actually. And sugar too. I can crave it, like today, but when I eat it I realise that I didnt need it that bad. So today I had a little chocolate - but I went quickly back on track. :)
This is a diet I can live with. I like it. And I dont have to feel that I have to do this or that.

Bought a few things at the Second Hand store lately... PICS!

My new computer chair. I hate "traditional" office chairs, uncomfortable and ugly.
Paint it black and change the fabric to something red or black. I will try to save the nails, but if I cant, I'll get new ones in gold.
Felix loves the old, dusty thing. ^^

Two really thick and flyffy blankets.
And a piece of lace fabric for a lamp-shade.

 Wallpapers for my room. I would like them to be much darker, but hey, for 30 SEK it's OK! xD
Dont want to spend too much money for a house that is not mine.
All-new make-up brushes, 8 SEK!
And some x-mas lightning. I will paint the wooden stars in a metallic gold paint.

 Pretty candle holders!
They will fit in nicely when I've painted my room... and furniture. :)

More pretty candleholders!
I will have to decorate a future guest room in a white-country-romantic-style, so that they will fit in well. :)

Finally I got an old Bible.
A very nice one too, with ornaments and - it's black & purple! :)  It's from year 1877 and have alot of personal writing in it, but I cant make out what it says except for a few words. The art and text is beautiful, but it's a bit hard to read, so I will have to get another one if I decide to read it. 

Now I just need a nice, black shelf to put it on, as if it were a painting. ^^
