NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Paint these lips red

SDC10475I have this thing for red lips, it just suits my coloring the best. With my pale skin, eyes and hair I was sure that Pink would suit me best, but it just makes me look weird. And a whole lot paler. But the Red just gives the rest of my face a nice touch, kind of like a blonde Snow White. It doesn’t matter what kind of shade of red it is, everything goes as long as it is in the red pigmentet spectrum. So there’s no surprise basically all my lip product are red (even my lip balm has a tiny bit of red tint).

Review: The Potion Diaries by Amy Alward

SDC10482I don’t know if my depression has something to do with my reading slump, or if my reading slump (along side some other things in my life) helped my depression kind of come back. Either way not being able to read has been a really hard thing for me since the majority of things in my room are books. It feels kinda like if I had just on one single personality trait it would be ‘that book girl’. But so today I tried to read this one book I order ages ago called The Potion Diaries. Somehow I managed to get through it, but what did I think about it?

Music can be fun too

Most music are very serious, even if it’s just some generic pop song. Okay, maybe not ‘serious’ in the same way that emo and punk music are. But they are serious in a ‘grumpy’ serious way, their topic is something serious and kind of “F you world”. So even though every random pop song is essentially about love it’s really serious business. Because it’s a expensive business to write and produce a pop song nowadays.

So it’s very refreshing to listening to ‘comedy music’. They always somehow manages to be super topical and very personal, along with a very catchy tune. They’re just hits the head right on the nail.
But how did I come onto this whole path right now? Well, the last days I have not been feeling very good leading to a massive lack of energy aka laying in bed crying while I feel completely useless. It’s an endless, very bad circle since it makes me feel even worse -> less energy -> haven’t the energy to do anything productive (and repeat).

The most energy I’ve managed to muster is to watch videos on YouTube, and most happen to be crack videos. Avengers and Marvel crack videos… The quick pace of them just really manages to be interesting and sometimes even makes me smile (it’s a big thing when dealing with depression). Okay, now I’m getting a little bit out of topic so if you’re still reading this that’s amazing. No really, you just managed to read all of my random writing.
Anyways, in these type of videos some songs always reappear, and often they are comedy songs.
So with watching a whole bunch of Avengers videos one song I’ve come across is “You, Me and Steve“. This lead me to do some more research which introduced me to comedy music duo Garfunkel & Oates. Their songs are awesome! No really, I’m listening to them right now while writing this. Just listening to their songs make me feel kind of happy and a little bit easy at mind, even if it won’t last for long. It’s just so nice to get a chance to relax a little.

Which is your favorite comedy song? Are you like me and thought that “You just had sex” was a real, serious song (which actually says more about todays popular music than my music knowledge)?
