Back home!

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

I’ve had a couple of days now full with activity, and cats! And oh such lovely cats then!

I was visiting the breeder FIN*Kharn-Ka in Esboo in Finland yesterday, mainly to drop of Saria to meed Igor the Supreme Champion! (Yes that is actually his titel, cat show and stuff, don’t ask me I’m not so well informed about it all).

Unfortunately Igor was not there, and his owner was away for the day so I couldn’t take a look at him, but I got to meet Jaana’s other beautiul cats and I actually managed to take some pictures! So here goes.

First off I want to present a gorgeous little prince from Italy that totally stole my heart away! I might update with names on the cats later, because honestly I have no idea, too short time to remember and the names are usually not easy .

He spent some time on my shoulder as well, so here is a picture of us, me with no make up on and my prince hanging on my shoulder.

His colouring isn’t great, but god his temperament is so lovely, he came up to me at once and demanded my attention. When I sat at the kitchen table he laid down in front of me and rolled around demanding to be petted. I would have stolen him with me if I could!

Then we have a Aby variant girl that reminded me a lot of Saria in her behaviour. She was quick, not very happy to be lifted or petted and super cute!

Those were the only Two I managed to get more than one of two good pictures of.

Here is a relative to Igor, his grand grand mother, I can’t remember.

And some sorrel somalis! There were 2, but honestly I can’t tell them apart.

And then another relative to Igor, and the oldest cat in the cattery!

And I only managed to get one “decent” photo of Saria on the whole trip. She is impossible to catch on film!

Cruising with a cat!

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

Hmm still not makeups to post. I have pictures of one tho! But haven’t had time to upload them or edit them at all. Tonight I’m leaving for Helsinki, me and Micke were supposed to go on a mini weekend, 2 nights in a hotel and nice restaurants and just a nice time. But then life intervened. We spent 2 hours at the emergency room last Monday with out 4 year old cat because of an eye injury. Luckily she had no problems with the eye itself, just an infection and now has to get antibiotic-eyedrops 3 times a day for 7-10 days. So that means we can’t leave her alone. Micke will stay at home, but I’m still going since we are going to drop Saria off at a gorgeous fawn Somali stud and hopefully there will be kittens sometimes in June/July!

I have never been on the ferries with a cat before, and i have no idea how she will react. There won’t be that much wind, so that is good. But my biggest fear is her managing to get out of the cabin when I open the door and then have to chase her all around the ship! They are not small I tell you. Build to take around 2500 passengers it will be hard finding 1 small cat if she wants to hide.

My sister turns 18 on Saturday. I don’t know what to get her! I hate presents, it’s always so hard and that is why I don’t buy anyone anything, except Micke for Christmas and his birthday.  But since I am going on a cruise with tax-free I can try and get her something girly on the ship I guess.

Busy busy busy!

Monday, April 20th, 2009

Sorry I’ve been lagging behind in posts lately! Been pretty busy all weekend. I am working on my web-page a lot, and it’s really fun! I am getting a hang of it so I’m not bothering Micke every 5 seconds to check something for me when I can’t figure it out.

We are going on a trip this weekend to Helsinki. A little mini weekend, and taking Saria with us to drop of to meet a beautiful stud. The problem is all the details aren’t set yet, and I’m the biggest control-freak, so I’m freaking out a little because I can’t plan everything as I want too. But it will probably work out fine!

I’ll try and keep you updated and maybe do a little makeup tomorrow morning. Just don’t know how I will take pictures of it with the new camera. But that will work out somehow!

Never leave your computer unlocked.

Wow, I think my cats managed to delete a whole post from my blog, just because I forgot to lock my computer before I went to work.

Well, I was showing off my boyfriends cat, Bertík. The only picture out of 214 that I was actually somewhat pleased with. I have managed to snap some more pictures this morning so I will try and post them tonight.

The book my boyfriend ordered for me, about learning HTML and CSS has finally arrived!! So I’m gonna start working on my website properly this weekend :)

EOTD. Elven Dragon Nijiro.

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

This is Mondays EOTD. I did it at work, so it’s not perfect and I didn’t manage to take that many pictures.

eotd-130409-elven-dragon-nijiro-4

Elven Dagger, Dragon’s Wing and Nijiro from Fyrinnae. Dragon’s Wing from the inside of my lid and in the middle, Elven Dagger on the outer corner and Nijiro as highlighter. I love this green colour but I didnt manage to apply it as I wanted too.

EOTD. Spring Parental Angel.

Sunday, April 12th, 2009

Todays EOTD. From pink yesterday, to purple today!

eotd-120409-spring-parental-angel eotd-120409-spring-parental-angel-2 eotd-120409-spring-parental-angel-3

Parental Advisory from Fyrinnae, Spring Lunacy from Archetype and Snow Angel from MAD. Parental Advisory all over my lid and under. It’s a great blue lilaic dark shade. And then I put Spring Lunacy all over Parental Advisory, lightens it up and makes it shimmery! Snow Angel as highlighter.

Impulsive? Me? Not at all!

Sunday, April 12th, 2009

I just bought myself a Nikon D40. I am pretty bored at work and been kind of annoyed that I don’t have a nice camera to take pictures with. The eye photos are “ok” but I can’t manage to snap any good pictures of the cats. So a long boring day at work makes you order expensive things on the Internet! The order contained:

  • Nikon D40 Kit 18-55 Box
  • Nikon Lens 35mm f/1.8 DX AF-S
  • Hoya Filter UV G-Serie 52mm
  • 4 GB memory card

I am happy with the order! And it’s my birthday tomorrow, so this is my gift to myself. I promise you’ll see pictures taken with this camera! I’ll either sell my Fujifilm FinePix F40 or retire it. Or i think my BF wants it, so I’ll just hand it to him.

Some news!

Sunday, April 12th, 2009

Wonderful day here in Stockholm, tho yesterday was even warmer. And I’m stuck at work. Tho I’m not actually complaining since I’m making about 15 € extra each hour just because it’s a national holiday. Same for tomorrow!

I’m working on a new web page. It’s gonna be the heart of my next operation! As you already have seen I own the beauty S*Anshara Zmilla Dawnika, also called Saria at home, and she is my future queen in my own breeding of the wonderful breed Somali. I’ve been thinking a long time of this and will together with S*Anshara take the first litter on her. We are still looking for a suitable stud, so we don’t know when yet, but I hope it happens before the summer, so I can spend my holidays at home with a litter of fur-balls!

So right now I’m learning HTML and CSS so I can build my own website from scratch. The only problem is that I don’t know anything about design, or graphics, so I will have to find someone else to do the graphics parts for me! But I hope it wont be too hard. I already have a nice man that made the headers for me on this blog! So I’ll see if he is up to the challenge or making another header and banner for my website. But it really fun learning HTML/CSS! I just wish I had more time so I could focus more on all the little projects I have going on. But I doubt my boyfriend would find it very fun if I quit my job and he had to provide for me and all my goofy interest.

I’ll get another EOTD tonight! I brought half my make-up arsenal to work, and even remembered to pack my camera! So I managed to snap some pictures and will upload them tonight.

Hope you guys had a great Easter and ate a lot of candy! I feel like such a kid since we got tons of candy both from my mother and my motherin-law, so we don’t need to buy our own for… Well for atleast a week!

EOTD. Illegal Plastic Insanity.

Sunday, April 12th, 2009

I was gonna post this yesterday! But I just got home too late so I fell just went to bed instead. The name for this EOTD is pretty funny, and kind of fitting I think!

eotd-110409-illegal-plastic-insanity-9 eotd-110409-illegal-plastic-insanity-8 eotd-110409-illegal-plastic-insanity-7

Illegal from MAD, and Plastic Pink and Pink Insanity from Archetype.  I am still waiting for Cranberry Sauce from Archetype, but Illegal is very similar, so I just use that instead! It is one of my favourites but I don’t get to use it that often. Illegal all over my eye lid and under it. Then I used Plastic Pink all over Illegal, it gives it this night shimmer and a little lighter pink shade. Pink Insanity as highlighter and  Smokey Eyeliner from EDM as a wet eyeliner. I’m getting better at applying the eyeliner! I think I know now how to make it not so blotchy and fat. Practise makes perfect!

I love this make, I fell in love Lina’s valentines makeup. I’ve been thinking about it for a long time. And in my opinion Pink is also a Easter colour (since I already did the green/yellow one!!)  So I went with pink. In lack of Cranberry Sauce, Illegal did a pretty good job!

EOTD. Lots of Sunshine Shinkirou.

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

Todays EOTD. Easter is here! So I went with a Bright yellow/green make. Similar to a Daffodil.

eotd-090409-lots-of-sunshine-nijiro-3 eotd-090409-lots-of-sunshine-nijiro-2 eotd-090409-lots-of-sunshine-nijiro

Sunshine and Lots of Love from MAD, Nijiro from Fyrinnae. Sunshine in the inner corner and also just over my eyelid, by my brow bone and under the eye, Lots of Love on the middle and outer corner of my lid. Nijiro as a highlighter. I wasn’t very pleased with the made at first. But arter working with the pictures I liked it more and more. Since I’m going to my mother in-law today to dinner, I wanted to be a little “eastery”. Tomorrow I’m going to my mother for dinner and there are more of my family there. I feel like being pink! So I am 90% sure Plastic Pink will be in tomorrows make-up.

Lots of Love really grows on me! It lights up my day since the weather here is all gloomy.
