I know I’m late

Hello sweeties,

Yes I’m stupid, I’m doing a Christmas post a week after. Seems legit. But this is a *request*.

These last days, I’m listening on repeat to Christmas Unicorn by Sufjan Stevens. So all day long, I’m singing out loud that I’m a Christmas Unicorn. At home. By sms. On Twitter. Everywhere. Anywhere. And a friend said “PICTURE OR IT DIDN’T HAPPEN”. And here is the pic. Better, HERE IS THE GIF I MADE OMG.

xmas_unicornLet’s say that this is my New Year gift. 

Drink a lot tonight, but not too much. Try to stay safe and dignified. And have a happy new year, my loves. See you next year. 

(hahahahohoho that was a great one)(okay, sorry, goodbye)

Magical frost

Hello sweeties,

Yesterday, I went to the cinema. Yes I did. And I watched Rise of the Guardians, eating candies and drinking Arizona tea. Sweet sweet life.

Boyfriend told me that it was a nice animated film and I confirm. I liked the story. It’s about the Bogey-man who, after centuries forgotten in the dark, comes to take his revenge against the children’s hope Guardians who are Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy and Sandman. But even together, they’re not strong enough this time to defeat the Bogey-man as this one became stronger and more dangerous than ever. He found a way to use Sandman’s magic sand to turn children’s dreams into nightmares and spread the fear inside of them. The loss of  the children’ sense of wonder compromises the existence of the Guardians who become weaker and weaker. But they hadn’t taken Jack Frost -the personification of frost and cold weather- into account, who has been chosen by the Man in the Moon to help the Guardians.

The characters are so appealing. I especially loved Santa, he’s so funny and frank. And he has tattoos, which is super cool. I also loved the mini fairies, they’re so cute. I wish I had one as a plush.

AWWWWW

AWWWWW

The storytelling is great, I didn’t get bored at any point. And I laughed so hard! Some scenes are hilarious, like the one with the little blond boy about the end of the film. When I think about it, I’m still laughing. More largely, I find that there’s a good balance between action scenes and slower scenes. Plus, it’s perfectly animated, it’s very fluid, a real eye pleasure. Dreamworks eh.

But what I love most is the wonderful visual work. It’s truly beautiful. I really mean it, it is beautiful. The graphic world is absolutely fantastic. The materialization of some ideas is fabulous (the Sandman’s sand, the nightmares, the frost, the Easter eggs). It’s so magical. That’s why this film is so great. It tells about saving the wonder inside people’s heart and even if in real life you don’t believe in the Guardians, it makes you feel like a child again because of the visual beauty. It’s a dream within a dream. I believe I still have sparkles in my eyes.

Oh and dinosaurs. Enough said.

Conclusion in memes :Rise of the Guardians, it’s a lot of this :

And at the end, there was a child in the cinema who was like this :

World’s worst plague

Hello sweeties,

God, I really have to stop procrastinating. I’m preparing a comics post for a few days and it’s not progressing much. I’m eating candies and drinking hot chocolate all day long, but it doesn’t help to motivate. Blah. I draw a line and then I fall in the abysses of the Internet. And 3 hours later, when I ask to myself what I’ve done all this time, I’m just like :

I DON'T KNOW

I can’t do nails posts for a while, because my nails are super weak these days, so I have to stop applying nail polish. I bought so many new nail polishes what’s more. Yes, I take it very hard and my heart is broken right now.

I can't do it

Actually, I spend my days eating a lot and complaining because my stomach hurts because I ate too much. Christmas.

I don't understand

Anyway, I think I’ll make cosmetics reviews for the following days, so that I keep a kind of blogging rate. I hope this is going to help me to defeat procrastination.

Cute as hell, talented as hell

Hello sweeties,

I’d like to talk about some wonderful artist today. She’s called Abi Wade and she’s insanely talented.

I discovered her music when I was at Patrick Wolf’s acoustic show in Paris in November. For those who don’t know it yet, Patrick Wolf is my favorite artist ever. I said E-VER. I love his music, I will love it forever and even, I will love it five-ever, maybe even six-ever if I could. Anyway.

Abi Wade was opening this night. Before going to the show, I didn’t have the time to listen to what she was doing. So it was complete surprise. And when she started to play and to sing, good Lord, she literally blew away. She hypnotized me. That was crazy. She is fantastic.  I was almost open mouth. 

This cute girl. Alone on stage. Playing cello, box and tambourine at the same time. Oh and she also plays the piano. She perfectly controls her hands, feet and voice (people like that always amaze me at the highest point). And good heavens, what a voice. So powerful and touching.

Go check out her music (my favourite song is Perfect Form), it’s definitely worth it.

The reason why living in France makes me feel so sad sometimes

Friend 1 : Hey guys, what about going to Amsterdam for Spring Break? Celebrating St Patrick and my birthday!

party Friend 2 : Yeah, I’m in!

oh yes !Friend 3 : I’m in too!

youhouMe : HEY CAN WE GO TO BURGER KING PLEASE?

omg i can't

Edit : Okay, there is one that just opened at Marseille, but it doesn't count. I live in Paris.

Lady Oscar is a cat

Hello sweeties,

When I was a little girl, my mum and I were always watching The Rose of Versailles on TV. It was our favourite japanese cartoon and we were never missing any episode. And till now I’m a Lady Oscar fanatic (my mum too by the way). So, when a friend of mine went to Japan this summer and brought me back the Lady Oscar *official* eyeliner, I went crazy. Look at this beauty.

I’m using cream eyeliner, pencil eyeliner, gel eyeliner, liquid eyeliner… Any kind of eyeliner. But I always had issues with liquid eyeliners in a pen. They always dry after 2 uses and they can’t be used anymore. But this one, my dears, this one is perfect. The best eyeliner I’ve tried so far.

lady oscar eyeliner 3 © WinaThe brush tip is very soft, it’s pleasant to use, it doesn’t hurt when you apply it.
It doesn’t dry in the pen. I’ve used it a few times now and it’s still working.
And this colour. Good Lord, this colour. A perfect intense black. No need to go over it several times, the colour is perfect at the first line.
It’s also long lasting. As my eyelids have the tendancy to oil (ha that’s so sexy, isn’t it?), even with a primer, I need strong liners. And this one perfectly does the job.

Do I have to mention that I’m completely in love with it? I’m so sad that it’s not sold in France. lady oscar eyeliner 4 © Wina

I’m using E.L.F. Radiance Enhancer (fr/us) in the Sunrise shade as an eyeshadow, applied on the mobile eyelid, Naris Up Wink Up Perfect Style Mascara on the top lashes and E.L.F. Exact Lash Mascara (fr/us) on the bottom lashes.

Thank you so much Mumina for this wonderful gift!
