Post whats in your bag.

My bag.. Is super boring! Because I don't actually have a purse since I live at my school and so I don't need anything for transport time and such.

But I bring my school books ofc, laptop, sometimes headphones, pills for allergies and headaches, toilet paper (only during allergic times xD), my keys, phone, pencilcase, water bottle.. I hustle gum form others :D
That's basically it ... :(

Why use violence?

Hia guys! Today I finished my last school paper for this year! It's an english essay and it's probably the best essay I've ever written I am SOOO satisfied! Since I like it so much and it's in english, I thought I'd post it here.

Why use violence?

What makes someone hit another person? What is their reason? Maybe jealousy, two men fighting over a pretty girl as we so often see in Hollywood movies. Hatred, you’ve been bullied and now you plan to take revenge in the most painful way. Entertainment, a group of youngsters attacking an innocent person while filming it on their cell phone. Sadism, the enjoyment of seeing someone else in pain.
We use violence when the words we say doesn’t go the distance anymore. When we’re so affected by our feelings that we need to express ourselves clearer. No one uses violence for no reason, there’s always a reason, a feeling inside of us, emerging to the surface and brought to life by a punch to the shoulder or maybe even a headbutt. Feelings like the rebels in Egypt had, having been suppressed for so long and at last rebelling, which turned into a blood filled violent chaos with people dying for their beliefs and eager for freedom. Violence can also be used to create a statement. “Look at me, I have power, fear me.” If Hosni Mubarak really had felt that he was a good leader to his people, he wouldn’t have had to use violence and make his army kill over 800 people. Just browse through the world’s history and you’ll find loads of examples of leaders who needed to use violence to keep their power.

As a pacifist I don’t believe that the use of violence is the best way to solve problems, but I still want to say that getting physical is quite natural. The human being is modified, we’ve developed so much through the entire existence of human kind, the society has changed and now it isn’t socially accepted that two men fight for the best territory. Now we go house hunting with our realtor and if more people want the place, we compete about getting it, not by fighting but by bidding. But in the animal kingdom the evidence of our true existence is preserved. Fighting for the best territory is very common as we see lions, elephants, rhinoceros and many more animals do it.

When I look up “violence” in my dictionary it says “action or behaviour involving the use of physical power with the intention to hurt or kill someone”. But what about the most horrible type of violence? The one that’s turned inwards. When the sadness and the hatred towards yourself becomes so strong that you feel like you have to hurt yourself. The violence you practise toward yourself can come to life in many different ways. You tell yourself that you’re ugly, you stop eating because you think you’re fat, you cut yourself because..? Because someone told you that you were fat, stupid or ugly? Because instead of hitting you with their fist they hit you with their words and the violent pain they would’ve inflicted on you has now turned into rough words and they hit you hard. But words aren’t real, they don’t bleed, you can’t touch them so you cut yourself to see something real. Some people say that the physical pain is easier to deal with than the pain in your mind.

I hope you liked it, please don't re-post it anywhere or use it yourself as a school assignment.

Makeup: Raspberry and lime juice, redoing it

Hiaaa! I followed vintageortacky's (on youtube) tutorial on this look;

This is how my result came out;

First of all, mine didn't come out very well because my camera and lighting wasn't very good when I toook this picture xD but also my green wasn't so vibrant.By the way, I'm really loving Gaga's newly released song called "Judas", AWESOME! Thumbs up for Gaga ;)

Haul: Collective Beauty

Hia guys! So for a long time I've been flirting with the idea of doing a blog haul but I normally get my things a little by little, so here's a collective haul.

So first up is my Wet'n'Wild mega eyes gel liner. I love wearing a liner on my upper lash line and have been looking at this product for a while. So I got it, have been using it and is very satisfied :)

This nailpolish looks like it has a really queer colour, but actually it's very pretty! It's a really light sky blue, it just wouldn't turn out that way on the picture :(

Then there's this eyeshadow palette, cheap, fun, pretty colours, why not? ;) Here are some more pics.

Elizabeth Arden in Green Tea Lotus. I actually got this when I meant to repurchase the original Green Tea perfume, but this was just different and cheaper for a many mor mls! I like it, reminds me a lot of the original with a nice touch :)

Then some earrings. These are all from Senze, they're super cute really cheap! All studs, I just like the pinkish floral thing for spring <3 data-blogger-escaped-a="" data-blogger-escaped-as="" data-blogger-escaped-br="" data-blogger-escaped-cute="" data-blogger-escaped-definently="" data-blogger-escaped-different="" data-blogger-escaped-especially="" data-blogger-escaped-favorite="" data-blogger-escaped-get="" data-blogger-escaped-have="" data-blogger-escaped-i="" data-blogger-escaped-in="" data-blogger-escaped-ll="" data-blogger-escaped-month="" data-blogger-escaped-more="" data-blogger-escaped-of="" data-blogger-escaped-read="" data-blogger-escaped-roses="" data-blogger-escaped-seen="" data-blogger-escaped-small="" data-blogger-escaped-so="" data-blogger-escaped-some="" data-blogger-escaped-the="" data-blogger-escaped-them="" data-blogger-escaped-those="" data-blogger-escaped-well="">

Last but not least, I almost forgot (that's why it's not in the collective picture) my new eyeshadow palette from Wet'n'Wild as well, this is in Pride.

Hope you enjoyed, btw a little disclaimer, I'm not sponsored by any of these companies and bought all the products for my own (or my mums) money :D

Free to speak

Hey'yall. Lately something has been bothering me, exactly what I'm not sure of, but one thing that I'm sure has been bothering me is that my friend Marie knew about my blog and often checked it. In some way it was nice, but I constantly thought about what I could and couldn't write in here, and seriously, that was only ONE person, I mean, what if more people knew?
I know I know, it's childish, but to be honest I'm pouring my heart out in here sometimes and even though Marie is one of my best friends I like to have SOMETHING, SOMEWHERE on the internet that I can just.. Relax and say exactly what I want without my closest friends commenting and butting in. I regret, SO MUCH that I gave Marie the link for my blog and now.. I just hope she won't be able to google it :s

In general I've just been pretty pissed the last couple of days. Everything my friends did and said just made me angry and I hate myself for it but what can I say? I'm just in a bad mood I guess. HAPPY THOUGHTS THOUGH! I have soooo many plans for awesome blog posts starting tomorrow, like funny youtube clips (if I can figure out how to GET THEM IN HERE xD), favortie songs at the moment, books, make up, beauty products, monthly favorites and so on.

I love that I feel so independent! Love you! xo

Blog challenge day 20 and new banner

Today's challenge:
Post a picture that makes you smile.
ONE picture that makes me smile.. The first thing that pops into my mind is this.

Also I just uploadet a new banner at the top of the page. I really do like it, and if you've noticed YES my eyecolour has changed, simply because it just changes sometimes and I had the sun BRIGHT in my face which also is why I'm making the dirty eyes, simply because my eyes were almost watering because of light.
AND! Look forward to my upcoming review of the iPad, uuuh! Exciting! I have been listening to Rihanna's "ONly girl (in the world)" CONSTANTLY, I don't know why, I think Rihanna is so bitchy and slutty but I just can't stop. OH WELL! L8er!

Today's challenge:
Post your alias and why you have it.

My alias is Elk and I have it because I chose it. My name is Elisabeth and nobody ever bothered to give me a nickname like Eli, Lizzie, Elle or something like that, so one night I simply just sat down and made up Elk and from there on, I just branded it. I love it!
