Weekly Sum-Up #8

The weather got colder (finally!) and we all like to stay inside, where it's warm and cosy. Aishila has a special place beside the radiator and on it. She keeps ''migrating'' from one place to another, based on how warm she is. She spent most of the summer outdoors and now she barely goes out. I don't mind. I like it better when I know she's safe and sound.

Now that I've read all the George Martin books I could get, I started reading J. R. R. Tolkien's Hobit. I don't like his style that much, but I'll try to read it anyway. The movie won't be out until the end of year 2012 and I'd really like to read the book first. I guess I have more than enough time.

Those of you who follow me on Twitter know how much I love Neil Patrick Harris. Especially as a How I Met Your Mother character Barney Stinson. His quotes are, well, legendary. =D

''It's gonna be legend-... wait for it... and I hope you're not lactose intolerant because the second half of that word is DAIRY!''

NPH lives with David Burtka who plays Scooter in HIMYM. They have twins together - a baby girl and a baby boy. <3 Here's a cute video of Neil talking about their twins. What's not to love about him?

I really needed to buy some tops - for sleeping. XD I know. I don't wear pajamas and I love to sleep in a nice top. My sister said some of these are too nice for bed though. Well, I got 10 tops for 10€ (1€ each) so I don't really care where I wear them. Here are some of them.


Good enough for a nap, right? ;)

Did you know you can curl your hair with a sock? I didn't know it either until I saw the video. I tried it out last night before going to bed and I must admit it's a pretty clever techique. My hair was already curly (I should have comb it first) and it doesn't look best, but it's working. And the most important thing is - it doesn't bother me when I sleep. I shall try it again.


What do you think of this sock-hair-curling method? Would you try it?

I'm sure you all know Rick Genest, the Zombie Boy from Lady Gaga's Born This Way video. I saw this post by Make Up Savvy on Dermablend featuring Rick. You really need to see that video. It's amazing. FYI: I like him better with the tattoos. I'm weird like that. He's hot anyway, don't you agree?

  1. Gijifacialsmakeup had a similar video on YT using panties. She learned that trick from her granny. Not that I need it, anyway, but it's cool not having to use heat and damage your hair.

    T-shirts for 1€ each. Where, please?

  2. Yeah, that's exactly why I like it. And it's comfy to sleep with too. I got the tops in Kik. They're having a sale of their summer stuff.

  5. 1) I envy sooooo much cats and their total relax! *__*
    2) I read The Hobbit when I was in the middle school and I barely remember the story, i should read it again >_< By the way, I saw the cast for the movie, and WOW, Martin Freeman, the Watson in the UK series "Sherlock" (please, watch it!!!! ;D)
    3) Did you notice that Barney are wearing the duck tie again and again?!?!? ;D
    4) Finished! XD

  6. I've read Hobbit by Tolkien and to be honest it's his best one (I've read all LOTR's and Sillmarilion).
    I love Barney Stinson as well, anything he says makes my day. :)

  7. Yes, the sock-curling works. My hair is wavy-curly already and it just makes the curls look adorable and a little "loopier" when I use a sock bun (I watched the tutorial by the same girl). I never thought about sleeping with it in though....I may have to try that!!

  8. Aaah, Tolkien, you go girl!!! I'm a HUGE Tolkien fan. Hobit is a wonderful story, I love it. But Tolkien tends to have a very descriptive style and some people find it a bit boring, I hope it will get interesting enough for you, give it a few pages. :)

    OK, I REALLY need to find time to visit Kik, and search for all the cool stuff you're showing us here.

    I'm totally trying the sock method, I tried another with clips, but it was really uncomfortable to sleep with them and usually it didn't stay put during the night.

    Big thank you for linking my blog! I'm really glad (and honoured) you find my swatches so good. :)

  9. That sock curling method is unreal. The curls look great!

  10. Your hair looks gorgeous with those loose curls. Like the tops also. I need some long sleeves. I wear a long nightgown, I get kinda chilly! Those tattoos are wild. Beautiful work but I just can't imagine going through life looking like that.

  11. Thank you for the blog shout out!!!! Very awesome and nice of you!!! Now I'm going to check out YOUR blog! :)

    Much love!

  12. I lovelovelove the last two tops you posted. As for The Hobbit, do read it. It's a bit slow to start and clumsy at first, but it's really good (what? me, a Tolkien freak? pffff)

  13. O, kje pa si kupila te tope? Tudi jaz najraje spim v kakših takih majčkah...

  14. That cat looks just like mine... I couldnt find a good picture, but heres one: http://misjelle.blogspot.com/2011/08/katten-grnn.html ... And he loves to sleep with his tails between his legs :p

  15. I've tried the sock method but found that I like twisting all of my hair better. The sock method is nice tho since it's so fast :) HIMYM is the best!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh Gosh I love the Dermablend video!!! I think that guy is amazing and I agree, I like him better with the tattoos =) although he's hot without them too!

    I really like your tops! I don't like pajamas so I sleep in tops and cotton training shorts.

    ooh, and I love those L.A. polishes, I found them here in Zagreb (Croatia) but still hadn't got around to buying one... I couldn't choose just one, there are so many pretty ones!

  17. Oooh, I SO have to try that sock curling thing!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love Hobbit (and all Tolkien) but I enjoy the LOTR trilogy more. It is slow to start but I think you will enjoy it more as you get into it. However...reading it right after the Martin books...maybe it will seem a little dull, like, where is all the sex and political intrigue?? :)

  19. Hvala za link do mojega bloga <3 :)Ohh kaj bi jaz dala za takšne lase :O krasne imaš :) Topi so pa luštni 3,5 in 6 pa sploh. Barney Stinson je legendaren, umiram ob njegovih izjavah LOL. Hobita sem pa že brala pa se mi zdi da je trilogijo lažje brati.. Sicer pa ni slaba zgodba, na začetku si je treba zapomniti imena itd. potem pa gre lažje brati.. Sicer pa komaj čakam na film, upam da bo na nivoju Lord of the Rings..

  20. I actually had to watch that entire sock curl video, and it reminds me of when I tried overnight curling with my old perm rolls. xD I actually DID sleep pretty well, and woke up with... AN AFRO. XD XD XD I had hair down to my waist, but curled like that it only reached a little bit below my shoulders, hahaha! It was fun though.

  21. Awwww, Aishila is sooo cute. *insert.strange.noise.here*

    I'd love to try this curling method. A few months ago, I had been able to do, but now I wear a bob so it would be very tough to get a sock (I probably would have to use ten or something) into my hair.

    Ah, I like watching How I Met Your Mother, but that "legend- wait for it..."-thing lost a lot of its joke in the german translation. Now I finally get it! (Yeah, I could watch it in english, but I doubt I would understand everything.)

    The tops are very nice. But really a bit too pretty to only sleep in it.

    Rick Genest IS hot, with and without tattoos. But I'm with you, I like it a lot more with the tattoos. I'm into everything that looks "weird" in a dark way.^^

  22. Curling hair with socks is awesome! I manage to get these awesome curls after sleeping with a bunch of socks in my hair, but I still need to learn to use some products to make them last a bit longer. :D

  23. Damn! I never knew it was tattoos, I've always assumed that the zombie look was painted on his face for the video. I also think he looks better with the tattoos.
