Our Second Anniversary!

Hello! I know I've been very inactive lately. Life is pretty boring lately, just spending time indoors since it's still pretty cold outside. My eczema has also gotten worse - so much for cutting out dairy...
I do have a couple of blog ideas though; A tutorial on how I style my hair now, and album reviews. Just need the motivation, haha. I'm always open to suggestions!

But today, let's get in touch with our feelings. On the 21st me and Simen had been together for 2 years already! Man, time flies fast. At the same time I feel that 2 years isn't that much, but I guess that's just the perspective I've gotten from getting older. So here's what we did and some memories!

My look for going out to dinner.
Some products used:
Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
Rockereque red glitter
NYX Transylvania
Earrings from Darkling Beloved
This was actually my first time wearing dangly earrings!
Necklace from Alchemy Gothic (birthday gift from Simen)

Awkward height difference selfie

Dressed up so nicely

We went to a restaurant that only serves entrecôte as the main course. We've wanted to go there for ages, but it just never happened - so the day before we decided to reserve a table! I ordered the smallest size (150 grams), but I still couldn't finish it. It was really delicious though! Definitely going back. Surprisingly Simen knew the chef, and he gave us free crème brûlée! Nomnom. We ended the meal with a glass of cava and rum. It was a pretty nice evening! We usually don't go out much, we prefer to just stay inside - that's introverts for ya. But it was nice to have a proper date for once!

Now, let's look at some memories from the past year! So the past year I took him to WGT for the first time, been to several concerts together, I've met his entire extended family, we've moved into a new apartment together, gotten piercings together (his first!), and much more. Overall a pretty good year! I realize now that we don't take many photos together, haha.

I look like a child, haha.

I said yes! That is the wrong hand (for norwegians).

We both love them, I guess a lot of their songs are ''our songs''

Going home from the absinthe bar in the morning

We did one of those photos, since he finally has cool boots!

Oh, I forgot! We randomly were models for a fashion show!
Simen has gained a lot of confidence during our relationship.
I think that's great, cause he should be confident in himself!

He also gets along well with my friends..

..and my family! And I with his.

Our second Yule together


He really supported my decision to cut my hair!
Now he's the one growing long hair.

I'm teaching him to shave my head!
The first two times he missed a lot of spots.
But hopefully he'll get the hang of it!
It's only fair, I do his, he should do mine.

After we got our earlobes pierced!

Being naughty in bed; beer and pizza.

We've had lots of good experiences together the past year! And there will be plenty more to come. One thing I think I want to address is that we hear this whole #CoupleGoals thing a lot. I don't really get that thing. I don't think there is such a thing as the perfect couple or the perfect relationship. We're all different, with different personalities and needs - which is great! Sure, me and Simen have a good relationship - but that doesn't mean that what we do would work for anyone else. Honestly, we're pretty boring. Most of the time all we do is sit in our living room, behind our own screens. Now as an introvert, that is important to me; being able to be alone - ''together''. To others that could maybe be terrible! I'm also not a romantic person. Simen is more romantic than me, so he does some romantic gestures from time to time - sometimes he surprises me, in a good way! I don't really like surprises, but he knows me well enough. I am honestly happy if he does stuff around the house without me asking - and even more so since he acknowledges my OCD. I'm sure some people would have gotten super pissed dealing with that. He's also an incredibly patient, supportive and strong person - He helped me through depression (I guess that was more than a year ago now though), and when my eczema has flared up so bad that I cried and could barely move. So I am incredibly lucky to have him. I wouldn't say he's a perfect man, I don't think that exists. But perfect for me? Probably.

I know he's gonna read this (he actually reads my blog, listens to drafts and is kind of my consultant in general), so; Thank you for everything, I love you so much!

And to everyone else, thank you for your attention! Thank you for all your sweet comments.

Party Look & More Fun Stuff

Hey! Since I have no life and didn't have plans this weekend (just my little sister paying a surprise visit in the middle of the night), I'll share my last weekend! Simen's parents were visiting, so friday we went out to eat, which was really nice. Saturday we had a delicious brunch at our place. Avoiding milk isn't hard, but a little annoying, since I love a lot of stuff containing dairy. But if my skin clears up, it'll all be worth it. I can treat myself to something containing dairy on special occasions. 

Before this photo was taken, the two dressers were in opposite places - We had just put them there when we moved in. But Simen's mother had the great idea of moving them, and it looks so much better now! The room looks bigger, the heights look good, and you can see the yule tree she gave us.

After they left I had just enough time to do a seasoning session of my new waist training corset, while getting ready for a party. I hadn't done my make-up in 5 weeks, because my skin has been awful (see why I'm cutting out dairy?). I also properly styled my hair, and crimping it first. Here are the results!

Necklace - Darkling Beloved
Custom dress - Rose Mortem
Vest - DIY
Blazer - DIY
Boots - Demonia

A couple of the fancy beers I brought to the party.

I had a lot of fun at the party! Caught up with friends, met some interesting new people, good music... Something very rare also occurred: I got drunk. That almost never happens to me! But it was a good drunk, so I enjoyed it. And all my friends did too. And especially Simen who came to pick me up!
I don't go out / party very often, and even when I do, it's very calm - and I probably go home early. Yeah I've felt like an old lady for a good while now. I think I save all my energy for WGT LOL

Speaking of WGT, I'm probably going to start planning outfits for that soon. My band wishlist is also growing, which is gonna be hard when the final schedule comes out - but it always is. At least it means I'll have a great time! Also, this week me and Simen will have our second anniversary!

Before I go, I'll throw in an outfit.
Did you do anything fun lately, and what are you looking forward to, soon or in the near-ish future?
Cute top - Thrifted
Corset - Mystic City Corsets
Leather skirt with pockets(!) - Forever 21

Collective Haul; Jewelry, Waist Training, Books & Music!

Hey, everyone! Like I told you a while ago I've been shopping a lot lately. It's just been piling up!
So I've decided to put it all into a collective haul post! LOTS of goodies here that I'm really excited about. Let's delve into it!
From Simen. He's the best!

It's a discontinued Alchemy Gothic ring.
But he found one! Just need to get it resized to child size LOL

And here's a bunch of stuff from Darkling Beloved!
Her store used to be called The Pumpkin Coven.
Simen ripped open the package, and moon confetti flew everywhere!
Can't wait to wear these now that I have my lobes pierced again.

This is actually my first ankh necklace.
Do I get any goth points now? LOL

I totally fell for this adorable necklace.
It's a little heavy, and hangs a little weird on my thin neck.
But if it annoys me too much, I'll probably just attach it to some clothes.

I already love this style of necklaces from her.
So I got one in purple! So magical.
Sadly the bat came off the first time I wore it.
But it still looks nice!
I'll probably use the bat for something else.

Simen got himself a necklace too!
I really recommend Darkling Beloved.
I think the quality is better than Alchemy too.

Ordered some more piercing jewelry
I'm such a sucker for bats.

Got myself my first waist training corset!
It's the MCC6 from Mystic City Corsets.
Above are all the photos from the seasoning period.
My goal is to close it before WGT, which I think will be no problem!

Now that I will be waist training, I got some stuff to help!
Most of my clothes are really baggy, so not suitable for stealthing.
So I got this toddler belt on Ebay!
You can see me wearing it on two of the photos above.

I also got these cinch clips on Ebay!
Now I can make my clothes look like they fit!
See below:
Blouse - Retroscope Fashions
Cameo - Goodgoth
High-low skirt - Burleska
Skelly socks - H&M

 Found this cute top for only 5 bucks at the thrift store!
It closes with hooks and eyes and fits really well.
Nice ruffles and slight stripes.

Sent to me by the author! Reviews here.

Everyone who knows me knows I'm a huge fan of Nemi.
I grew up with the comics, and even have her tattoo.
Finally added more books to my collection!

Norwegian dad humor.
I actually bought 3 books from this series for my dad for yule!
...and I got another book from the series from him!
I have the same humor as my 70-year old father.
Is that bad?

Mick Mercer, a legend in the goth scene.
Decided to check out one of his books!
If you want I'll review this sometime.

Lisbeth Salander is my hero.
I look exactly like her too now, haha.
Saw this in the supermarket, so I bought it!

Random buy at the thrift store. I used to love this movie!
It must have come out, like, 10 years ago now?
Sadly the sound from it was awful.
Weird, cause the disc itself looks fine. Oh well!

I randomly went on a national re-selling website and found this.
It was only like 3$, so I got it! Lucky me.
And now my SoM collection is complete!
I love that you can see our ceiling reflected in the cover LOL

Some CD box sets!
Cause fuck making playlists manually LOL

Ok phew, that was it! I guess I've been shopping a lot lately. And that's stopping now! Gotta save some money for the summer. It's now 2 months until we leave for WGT! So excited. I guess I'm allowed to start planning outfits now? Can't really do anything else while waiting for the final schedule. I have a couple of vague ideas for what I want to wear this year. AHH CAN'T WAIT.
