Happy Rebirthday, Ástrid~!!

HAPPY REBIRTHDAY, MY LOVE~!! Today, Ástrid is celebrating her rebirthday. It's been two years since she started HRT!! We started her celebration at midnight, with a kiss from me to her and a gift from a friend of ours. After a few hours, we snuggled together to watch Solo. 

After the movie, we started getting tired and we had a plan for tonight, so we decided we'd hit the hay. 

So, what was our plan? Visiting the local corn maze!! Ástrid's been to one once, but I never have, and we thought it'd be a fun date night and a rebirthday gift. 

The sky was already dusty blue and soft pink, the corn smelled amazing and holding Ástrid's hand as we walked through (got lost, got lost TWO checkpoints back but ultimately exited safely) was perfect. I also got a nice little picture of the Moon.

We came home, had dinner and are now relaxing for the night. Ástrid's rebirthday was wonderful and I'm so so so so happy. I love her so much and I'm so proud of her. I made her a really crappy card, but she loved it and that's all that matters. 💕 Happy Rebirthday again, baby. Thank you for taking me on a wonderful corn maze adventure and I LOVE YOU~!!

Currently 🍵

It's currently storming outside on this lovely October morning 🌧️

Hello, lovelies~!! It's time for my first Currently post in a long time, but first I want to say Goodbye, September and Hello, October!! In September, I wrote a post saying Goodbye to August and talked a bit about what the month had been like for us as well as posts about Ástrid's birthday and our anniversary, Kerry our catfish who passed away, celebrating Mabon, my September Weekly Love List (I only did one all month, ahhhh) and a cute and Casual Hello Kitty outfit

I never feel like I write enough posts each month, but when I round them up like that, there're more than I first thought and I feel accomplished. 😊 Which is good, because I've been hella tired so far this month. I've been struggling to do anything. 💤

Anyway, here is what I am Currently...

📺 Watching: This month has been excellent so far for movies. Ástrid and I watched The Thieves which stars one of my favorite actresses Jun Ji-Hyun and is a fantastic heist movie. 

Next was a Korean horror movie called A Tale of Two Sisters and nope nope nope nope. We started watching this movie on the computer and had to move to the bed to cuddle because it's THAT kind of scary. I love story heavy horror movies and this one was great. P.S. I am now terrified of a certain area of our kitchen.

And our latest was the Hong Kong live action Blood: The Last Vampire also starring Jun Ji-hyun!! This was such a fun take on vampirism and I loved the action scenes. I also loved the friendship between Saya and Alice.

Two of these are on DramaFever, which I recommend!! 

🎧 Listening to: My favorite Korean pop group (which has an epic rap line) NCT 127 is having a comeback!! Omo!! I can't explain how excited I am!! Here's the MV teaser: 

Oh and there's this...

They're doing SO MUCH this comeback and I hope that they get all of the love and recognition that they deserve!! 

🎮 Playing: Lots of World of Warcraft and Rainbow Six Siege!! Because of the Halloween Terror event on Overwatch, I'll be playing a lot to get my loot boxes. I better get Widowmaker's new skin!! 🕷️🕸️

As for Siege, I'm getting so much better!! Yay!! On the 10th, I'll be trying MapleStory 2.

📚 Reading: Mind Play by Mark Wiseman, a book about (erotic) hypnosis. It's a very interesting read and I've had some great success with this book so far. 18+!! When the Tiger Used to Smoke, a book full of Korean stories that are similar to our, for instance, Little Red Riding Hood. I guess that, in Korea, instead of "once upon a time" you say "when the tiger used to smoke"!! I love this. 

💪 Working on: Learning Korean!! It's been a year now and I still have a hard time, but I'm getting there. I really love sweetandtastyTV which sounds like it's only about food (which is good by itself) but it's also about teaching Korean!! For instance, in one click you can learn 9 Tips for Learning Korean or you can learn about just one word, like Pretty, depending on the video. 

😊 Loving: Ástrid and our babies, the fact that it's almost Halloween and Samhain, the stormy weather we've been having, seeing people RP on WoW, playing Frost on Siege, planning a trip to Ocean Mart and Seoul Market soon and so much more~!!

ShopLook Outfit #2 ~ Casual Hello Kitty

I was SO sad when Polyvore shut down earlier this year, but than I found ShopLook!! I've been making so many outfits and with their clipper tool, I feel like I've contributed quite a lot to their database of clothes, makeup and more. 😉

I'll be posting some of my favorite outfits that I've made so far. I have made a total of 12 so far and shared 1 in the past. 😁 Here's the next!! Enjoy~!!

Hello Kitty casual outfit
This whole casual Hello Kitty outfit was based around these Hello Kitty Converse, which I really really want. The cuuuute and so comfy looking Raglan Sleeve Asymmetrical T-Shirt and these ripped up High Waist Jeans finish the outfit itself, but I added a white choker and some makeup - Urban Decay eyeshadow in Gunmetal and e.l.f. Sheer Matte Liquid Lipstick in Nude Rose - for a complete look.

Let me know what you think~!!

Weekly Love List

HAPPY MONDAY, LOVELIES~!! I decided to write a Weekly Love List early this week, because I have SO much that I want to share. I hope you enjoy~!!

1. TonyMoly's Spicy Ramen makeup collection. I love ramen, I love makeup and now I know that I love the two together!! 

I think my favorite is the Lip Sauce Tints!! You can find them and the whole collection on Beauty Box Korea

2. This delicious recipe for Korean Banana Milk from My Korean Kitchen!! 

3. You Who Came from the Stars and Revenge Note. These are two Korean television series' that I am absolutely addicted to. You Who Came from the Stars stars one of my favorite actresses, Jun Ji-hyun, too!! 

You Who Came from the Stars' synopsis: Do Min-Joon is an alien who landed on Earth 400 years ago during the Joseon Dynasty period. Do Min-Joon possesses a near perfect appearance and enhanced physical abilities involving his vision, hearing and speed. Do Min-Joon holds a cynical view to human beings, but he falls in love with actress Cheon Song-Yi.

Revenge Note's synopsis: This web drama is a teen fantasy drama about a teenager who gets her hands on a note that enacts revenge on anyone whose name is written on it.  

Both are very easy to watch and have moments that are sweet, funny and a little dramatic. Oh and they're free on DramaFever~!!

4. I totally slay and so do these wedge sneakers from ShoeDazzle!!  

5. Speaking of slaying... Rainbow Six Siege!! Ástrid and I have been playing for almost a month now and it's so much fun. My favorite operators are IQ, Twitch, Finka, Frost, Ela and I just bought Pulse and am enjoying him a lot. I want to get better with Alibi.

IQ, Twitch and Finka in order. Attackers.

Frost, Ela, Pulse and Alibi. Defenders.

6. Little Bits of Loveliness: Ástrid 💕, whether it's sitting outside by the fire or watching a K-drama together or just... Being close... It's lovely. ✨ Our animal babies, of course!! ✨ Cate finding NCT stickers for me, including JOHNNY. WITH. CAT. EARS. ✨ Listening to Jessi and feeling empowered (I feel like gucci~)  NCT HAVING A COMEBACK!!  Lots of K-pop loveliness, actually. I'll have to make a separate post.  It's finally Autumn~!! 

And so much more.

Happy Mabon~!! 🔥

Fox and Fire

Happy Mabon~!! 🔥 The nights are fair drawin in. It's officially Autumn. The most magickal time of the year. I'm excited for our Mabon celebration tonight. 💕 

While I wait for that, I want to share some of my Autumn favorites with you. I hope you enjoy them~!!

1. Magick. It's Mabon now, which I love, and it's almost time for my favorite sabbat: Samhain. Even when I was small and didn't know about Paganism, I could feel the magick in the crisp Autumn air. I didn't realize how involved the Gods are, how the veil starts growing thinner. I didn't realize the ancient magick that held true to today. Now I do and I can truly make the best of Mabon, Samhain and Autumn as a whole. 
Black Widow Costume

2. Costumes. I absolutely love costume shopping and to be honest, most of the time I find costume pieces that I can incorporate into my outfits all year long. I'm not 100% sure what I'll be this year, but I'm leaning towards something spidery, like this Black Widow Costume. I'll do a post on my favorite costumes this year once it's October and my Halloween posting starts. While I celebrate Samhain, I love the modern Halloween festivities too.

3. Crafts. I went with a spider theme on my blog this year (which I really like and may keep forever, it's so nice 🕷️), so when I found this Spider Web Art Project, I added it to my craft list instantly. I also have apple head witches on there, and of course pumpkin carving!! 

4. Warm Clothing. The long hot Summer has ended and, at least after the Sun goes down, it's so much cooler already!! I love everything long-sleeved and comfy. Hoodie? Sweater? Cardigan? Yes. This adorable Long Sleeve Cat Face sweater is so cute. It's also from DressLily, which we love. Other great places: Hot Topic, Target and... Okay, so many others. I'll definitely write a post on my favorite warm pieces, soon. 

5. Food. If you have warm hands with warm clothing, you have a warm heart with warm food!! Because my taste buds are still getting used to the extreme heat of Korean food, and because I love anything honey based, I want to try these Rice Cake Skewers from My Korean Kitchen. They have the spicy version and a sweet version, mmmm. I've also been craving the biggest matcha latte ever. Ahhhh, I'm so glad it's Autumn.

6. Sharing The Season With Those I Love. It's the perfect time for cuddling up with Ástrid and our babies, share stories with friends and ultimately have a wonderful, loving season with all. 

Happy Mabon, again, friends and here's to a fabulous Autumn~!!

Mommy and I Love You, Kerry, and We Will Forever ~ Swim Freely 🐠

On September 13th, Kerry, Ástríð and my little catfish passed on. We had a little funeral for him in the backyard, and sent him to swim freely with the Gods.

Mommy and I love you, Kerry, and we will forever. Swim freely and Blessed Be. 

Ástríð's Birthday 🎂 and Our Anniversary 💕

Hello, lovelies~!! It's once again been a while since I posted... I share a lot on my Twitter and Instagram, so I don't post as much here. I will work hard on changing that. 💪

September 10th was Ástríð's birthday~!! 🎂 She doesn't like her birthdays, but this year, she was determined to enjoy her day and she did!! I was and still am so happy. 😊

She started crying when I showed her her cake that I made her. Foxes are very important to her, she herself is my foxie 💕, so she was very touched. Some good foxes to follow are TYR The White Fox and Juniperfoxx on YouTube and on Instagram.

I also made her a fox themed birthday card, which made her cry AGAIN. Her birthday was very special. 💕 For dinner, I ordered her a pizza combo I made once that she loved. BBQ sauce, pepperoni and bacon. 🍕

I hope I can make every single day as special for her as her birthday was. I love her so much. I love you, my Ástríð. 😘🤗

Then, on September 13th, we celebrated our 11 year wedding anniversary!! 

We decided to continue our Valentine's Day tradition of watching a unique movie, and we waited for a few days to watch Bleach, the live action version on Netflix!! It's so good!!

To my soulmate, Ástríð, here's to 11 years and infinity. 🥂 I love you, baby.
