If we met at midnight in the Hanging Tree

~ Mockingjay -

"Are you, are you coming to the tree, they strung up a man, they say he murdered three.

I went to see The Hunger Games - Mockingjay Part 1 with my sister. We held a marathon at her house first (yes, she moved out! I'm a little sad though, but I guess that's life) and it was really fun! I was against The Hunger Games at first, since it looked so much like Battle Royale, but after watching the movie a few times I started to enjoy the ridiculous capitol with their theatrical fashion sense. I adore Katniss bravery and how she stays true to herself the whole time. Her personality is strong and can hardly be influenced by others. I look up to her personality and wish I could be strong, like her. That is why I decided to do one of the make-up looks of Katniss Everdeen. I've chosen the Catching Fire Capitol Party Look. I hope I can make the dress too when my embroider skills are a little better because the details of that dress are stunning! I guess it will take me ages to draw the design of those details, but I'm definitely looking forward to it. I also adore her Mockingjay costume in the third movie. The snake skin texture, the details on the back that form feather, the design of the bow and arrows. It really suites her. Anyway, I hope you like this make-up look. Do you have a favorite dress, look of Katniss Everdeen, or do you have any other favorite character. Effie is pretty awesome too right?

Lays Oven Stars

~ Ed Sheeran -

"But both of our hearts believe all of these stars will guide us home"

Christmas is coming closer and closer, and I bet a lot are already thinking what they will cook or already decided where to go out. I always look forward to Christmas since I love the cozy and warm atmosphere and all the lights that will brighten up the streets.
On Christmas Eve everything has to be in the Christmas theme, don't you think? So what is better than these Lays Oven Starts? I think they look adorable and taste great too! The little lays book gives a few recipes, but since I adore avocados sooo much, I decided to make guacamole. What did I use:

  • 1 Avocado
  • 1/4 Lemon (a lime is usually used)
  • Pepper and salt
  • Garlic
  • Tabasco 
You start with Cutting the avocado in half so you can easily get the pit out by pressing your knife in it and pulling it out. Than you can use a spoon to scoop the avocado. After that you can flatten it by using a fork. Add a little garlic, 1/4 lemon, pepper and salt and Tabasco. Mix it all together and you're done! Enjoy! ^_^

Can you hear me out there?

~ Nana - 

London: "It keeps coming back to me. I remember this pain. It spreads across my eyes. Everything is dull. Everyone's smiling, they're smiling. It pushes me far far away. I can't understand. Everything is blue."

What can I say. This blog is losing it's motivation, probably because we are very busy and a lot of stress is overflowing me. I'm tired everyday, I have problems with my neck, I have trouble sleeping. I try to eat healthy everyday, walk, but I guess nothing really helps. The hardest problem is, that I always keep everything for myself. Be hard and try to be strong while I'm not. It's mentally very tiresome. Anyway, these picture were taken a while ago. I inspired myself on Korean Streetstyle since I adore the style very much now. Do you have a kind of streetstyle you like very much?
