My Lipstick Collection

header

So I had two possible posts for today and couldn’t decide which one to post, so I asked Twitter and lipsticks won by a landslide. So today we’re talking about lipsticks! Not my usual content, I know, but I have been wanting to try something new so here we are.

Just so you know from the start: I’m a total makeup newbie and lipsticks are basically the one thing I sort of understand which is probably also why I have hoarded a lot more of them than other makeup things. Continue reading “My Lipstick Collection”

Guest Post: How and Why I Got Into Game Dev? | Akselmo

Since I’ve been super busy with university and it’s also my birthday today I decided to leave blogging for someone else today and invited my dear Akselmo back to do a guest post again! Last time he talked about his favorite FPS games, so now it’s time to let him talk about his another favorite thing: making games!

I’ve tried many, many creative outlets and other hobbies. I’ve tried writing, drawing, painting, playing guitar, playing piano and some more. I’ve tried many hobbies among gaming, such as football (not handegg) and airsoft (which I actually really liked).

But every time, I’ve quit those things. I’ve maybe tried to pick them up later, but end up quitting. I just never got that something out of them. So I only had gaming as my hobby. Continue reading “Guest Post: How and Why I Got Into Game Dev? | Akselmo”

September Video Game Wrap Up

sptebda

Well, this month went exactly as I expected: so busy and sleepy that I barely did any gaming, so this is probably going to be a very short post. There’s some irony in the fact that because I spend my days working on a game I’m too tired to play any. I’ve gotten to do some fun character design stuff though so that’s cool.

Down The TBR Hole #5

tbhrhole

It’s time for another adventure to my Goodreads! Because it’s the never ending kind. Down The TBR Hole was created by Lia @ Lost In A Story. All my previous Down The TBR Hole posts can be found here.

“Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats going to change!”

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

ARC Review: The Sisters of the Winter Wood

37854049

The Sisters of The Winter Wood by Rena Rossner 

Synopsis:
Raised in a small village surrounded by vast forests, Liba and Laya have lived a peaceful sheltered life – even if they’ve heard of troubling times for Jews elsewhere. When their parents travel to visit their dying grandfather, the sisters are left behind in their home in the woods.

But before they leave, Liba discovers the secret that their Tati can transform into a bear, and their Mami into a swan. Perhaps, Liba realizes, the old fairy tales are true. She must guard this secret carefully, even from her beloved sister.

Soon a troupe of mysterious men appear in town and Laya falls under their spell-despite their mother’s warning to be wary of strangers. And these are not the only dangers lurking in the woods…

The sisters will need each other if they are to become the women they need to be – and save their people from the dark forces that draw closer.

Game Review: Demonheart

demonheart

I’ve been curious about Demonheart for a long time now but I decided to wait until all chapters were out before buying it, and now that they are and it happened to be on sale recently my fiance was nice and bought it for me. It’s been ages since I last played a visual novel so this was a nice change from my usual games. Continue reading “Game Review: Demonheart”

August Video Game Wrap Up

augustvg

Well, that’s another month over. August went a lot faster than I expected and my third year at uni has started this week! Just based on this first week I already know the next three months are going to be so hectic it’s gonna be a miracle if I can keep up with posting here at least once a week. So uh, sorry in advance. I’m basically going to be spending this autumn working on a game demo though so that’s pretty cool! Continue reading “August Video Game Wrap Up”
