I from now on swear by Sally Hansen [review]

Hello guys♥
So, the other day while shopping with my mom, she convinced me to buy this instant nail hardener from Sally Hansen. 

And I swear,

I am now forever indebted to my mother.

As it says on the picture, it's called "Diamond Strength" and claims to be able to stop nails from breaking, "virtually ends splitting, cracking and pealing".

I have always had my nails long, but usually I just managed to have 10 long nails for approximately a day or two, then one will almost definitely break off, followed by one or two more. That always leaves me with pretty funny looking nails, because my girly being cannot convince myself to cut the rest short as well. 

my mom always has had superlong and sturdy nails that I have very loudly envied. Hence it being her convincing me to buy the product.

When I first applied the hardener, my nails looked like this: 

Approximately a week or two later, my nails looked like this:

I hope you can see the difference, because I can, haha. And they have not even seemed to think about considering to break. I swear, my nails have gotten just as sturdy as my mother's! 

So now I feel absolutely naked without this hardener on my nails. 

I am about to cry from joy. Especially because my hands look ridicilously fat and uncharming with my nails short, haha, so actually my nails is a big part of me feeling confident and feminine, however stupid that may sound.

It's also very easy to apply and dries in less than a minute. Dipping the applier once into the bottle actually lets me apply a coat on almost all nails of one hand, so it seems to be something that also lasts long. 
Totally worth the 16 dollars I spent on it. 

 So just a heads up to you guys, if you like me want long nails but they keep breaking in the process, try out this hardener!

Hi guys!! ( ´∀`)

How are you all doing?

I know it's a little boring, but I just don't really have much to say... OTL

I love this picture so much myself. It looks so serene (^-^)*

The sign says "Ganbarou Nihon" as in "Do your best, Japan" or "Fight, Japan".

Liebster awards!

Hi guys!

So, I just more-or-less recovered from being down with a fever and a bad stomach since Monday.
In September, I broke a 10-year streak of not being sick, so being sick twice in two months is pretty crazy. And because I'm sick so rarely, I'm like a man with a cold when I finally am.

Meaning, I whine a lot and blame the world for everything.

But I'm pretty sure you can relate, right?

I've received around 3 liebster-awards from the lovely NiniMarienni and Sutewi, and my egoistical self loves to answer questions like these, so I hope you guys'll like reading them.

If not,
I'm sorry for being so egoistical. 


First, the questions from Nini:

1. What's your favorite blog?
Uh... Of English ones, it's Bubblipop'sSui's and Anna's. Of Japanese ones, my favorite is probably d=out's vocalist Kouki's blog, because other than being drop-dead gorgeous, he's really funny.

2. What feature do you love the most about yourself?
This sounds supersad and shit, but I don't know.... My hair, maybe...?

6. What's your favorite post on your own blog?
The one about how I feel about Japan.

7. What's something that you can't leave the house without?
My cell-phone

8. Why do you blog?
I'd like to write down my thoughts sometimes and I'd really like to connect to new people, but it's not going too well so far. 

9. What's your favorite nail polish color?
Light pink

10. Are you quiet or outgoing?
Depends a lot on the situation and the people, but mostly outgoing, I think

11. What is the last thing that you bought?
An eyelash glue on ebay earlier today

From Marienni and Sutewi:
1. What was the last thing you bought?
... lol whatcha think :D

2. What's something most people don't know about you?
I don't know haha, I keep a lot of stuff to myself. But maybe just how insecure I actually am...?

3. Sexiest part of a person's body?
Hands and collarbones! I have a serious love affair with collarbones.

4. What's one thing that you are wearing now? |ω・)
Super-comfy socks, 'cause I am recovering from being sick, haha. 

5. Most valued quality in a person?

5. Gain twenty-five pounds or lose six months of life?
This is your second no. 5-question.
Uhm, depends on whether I can lose the 25 pounds again.

Fattening foods.

7. Favorite trend of all time?!
Big scarfs. 

8. Let's do math! 36÷2(4+7)=? Just kidding: Biggest fashion mistake you've made.
well, basically everything I've worn from between 13-18. I don't know why noone put a sack over my head, honestly.

9. What is your biggest pet peeve?
People with dirty ears (like the inside of the ears). It's just really gross. 

10. Three characteristics or features you want in a partner/date.
Characteristics: Humor, loyalty, honesty. 
Features: A nice smile, dark eyes, pretty hands. 

11. Name something you want to have by next year.

That's it.
I made this one long time ago and tagged a bunch of people back then, but I think none of them have ever done it, so I'll just re-use the same questions:

My 11 questions for you:

1. Are you more worried about doing things right or doing the right things?
2. What question did you always wish people asked you? Answer it!
3. Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years, if you could become really attractive or really famous in exchange?
4. Throughout your life, which different occupations have you dreamt of having?
5. If you were part of a circus, what would you be doing?
6. What would you name your kids if you had one boy and one girl?
7. What is on your bedside table?
8. Have you ever discovered something embarassing about someone, but haven't dared to tell them that you know?
9. If you were to be part of a TV-series, what kind of character would you like to play?
10. If you were asked to write a message from all human kind that would be sent out in outer space for aliens to find, what would you write?
11. If you could marry a cartoon character, who would it be and why? 

And I have absolutely no idea who to tag, so anyone can feel free to do it

Passing a message

Hi guys,

how are you all doing?

So sorry for not updating at all for a while, but what I'm going to pass on in this entry might just explain it. My life has been one big bottle of sand and pebbles lately, you see.
I snatched this from www.buzbeauty.com, but the original copyright seems to belong to CHJ Financial.

"When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 Beers.
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him.
When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students if the jar was full

They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly.
The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full.

They agreed it was.
The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.
Of course, the sand filled up everything else.

He asked once more if the jar was full...
The students responded with a unanimous 'yes.'
The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand.
The students laughed..
'Now,' said the professor as the laughter subsided, 'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.

The golf balls are the important things---your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions---and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.
The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car..
The sand is everything else---the small stuff.
'If you put the sand into the jar first,' he continued, 'there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.
The same goes for life.
If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.
Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

Spend time with your children.
Spend time with your parents.
Visit with grandparents.
Take your spouse out to dinner.
Play another 18.
There will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.
Take care of the golf balls first---the things that really matter.
Set your priorities.
The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented.
The professor smiled and said, 'I'm glad you asked.'
The beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of beers with a friend.' "

My problem now is just that I have no idea how to get back to focusing on the golf balls....
