Photos XXXII: Bright Shorts

I really love bright coloured things, in clothing and in hair and all over the place, but I usually wear just black. It's so easy. Black and red, or black and violet. Anyway, I'm at the moment doing dip dye shorts that are going to be pink and violet, I'm going to show you guys all about it at some point, once I get pictures done, but right now, I'm just going to show you all the photos that inspired me to do this, because I've already done galaxy shorts that came out super nice:

Photos XXXI: Diamonds are a girl's best friend

This time I decided to put together a small photo ensamble of the most beautiful hair accessories I could find. I absolutely love all kinds of glittery sparkley hair accessories, but nothing seems to suit my hair. I think these photos show the diversity of what can be done easily to hair, so maybe some of them might suit me as well!
Hope you enjoy!

Photos XXX: Colourful hair is like sunlight in this time of the year

Though I do prefer having my hair black these days, I can't not look back at the not so long ago days when I still had hair the colour of the raindbow. It's just always been something very beautiful to be, colours in hair just make my life so much happier especially in this dreary time of the year. Even if the colour is in someone else's hair!

The first advent, candles and good food, singing and rejoicing, and oh that calendar...

So today is really the first of advent, which for me alone is something pretty big, since I do feel myself as a christian, or more specifically catholic. I'm not in any church at the moment, it's way too big of a hassle to join them, not to mention I've never liked the dogmatism of the church system. I believe in the fundamental things that define catholicism from protestants, and that's the choice.

You have a choice to sin and to go to hell, or to not sin and not go to hell. In any protestant religion, though you may have been taught different just to keep you believing, you don't have that choice. A Lutheran will wait forever in purgatory for the "final reckoning" and then go to heaven, while all others are either sent to hell or to heaven, doesn't matter what you do.
So. I don't want to be in heaven with a bunch of lunatics, I'd rather go to hell as a bad catholic and spend my time there with all those lunatics.

Anyway, for my dad, this time means nothing, I think he's probably atheist or just doesn't give a shit. He doesn't give a shit of most that sort of religious mumbo jumbo stuff, so it's advent just for me.

We went to Gigantti today to buy me that new phone (it's charging right now, I hope it works), and I'm really really excited about it. I've never had a Windows phone (well not exactly a Windows phone since it's Nokia, but still Windows) and am quite unsure if I'll learn how to use it. My Samsung was so simple to use, I think anyone or even some things could use it.
I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it. Dadumdadumda. Also bought a yellow cover for it, will buy a better one at some point. Bought some lense safety thingies, but they sucked, those "peel off before use" and "peel off after use" neither would peel off at any time. Yes, going to complain to them, most definitely. It's ten euros I just can't afford to throw away like that.

We also went to IKEA and got me a really heavy and thick blanket, since I only have like thin summer ones and I am freezing to death in my bed. I have four different blankets, all of which are warm and I slept with my clothes on. I was coooooolddd. So got a better blanket, maybe I don't need all those clothes anymore.

I also got to open the first window in my advent calendar. I never buy one since I get one for free from the Donald Duck I subscribe to. Yes, I subscribe Donald Duck. I love them. Absolutely LOVE  them. Can't get enough. Before I thought of my career change path, I was going to do my MA thesis on Donald Duck. So yeah, I love them. And so should you! *glare*
Also, for the advent, I decided we'll eat those waaaay too long in the freezer been venison steaks, so today we're eating venison! I've actually never had a venison steak before.

First Day of Christmas: Flower Brooch DIY

I felt this awesome idea had to start my DIY Christmas calendar on my blog! Just had to! I think, as someone who doesn't wear brooches like ever, this could be an awesome idea for your (and my) Christmas tree. All the felt flowers in all different colours would be amazing, especially if one could add some lights to them or maybe some glitter!
