Nail polishes inspired by The Silmarillion

There are several nail polish collections out there that are inspired by The Lord of the Rings or some other fantasy but I've never really tried any of those before. However, when I saw Aliquid's nail pollish collection that was inspired by The Silmarillion I just couldn't resist buying a few. The formula is, to be honest, not the best, it's a bit too gloopy for me but it's still OK. However, the colors are absolutely amazing! The nail polishes come in two different sizes, 15 ml and 5 ml. The 15 ml ones cost 9$ and the mini ones cost 4 $. I bought three 15 ml nail polishes, Devouring Wave, Nightingale's Song and Hidden City. They were all beautiful but my favourite one (which I also think favourite of all my nail polish) is Devouring Wave which also had the best formula of the three I tried.
 
Devouring Wave, a blue nail polish with some big chunky glitter (white/light blue and red) and some smaller ones aswell.
 
Hidden City, a green nail polish with some small golden glitter.
 
 
Nightingale's Song, a silvery nail polish.

I've got Meduseld in my room.

I've got to say that it's kind of nice to have Meduseld in your room if you invite Tolkien friends. Good conversation opener ;) My dad was in Canada in Feburary in 2013 and bought there a 3D puzzle of Meduseld to me. It's a bit embarrassing to say but I didn't finish the puzzle until this month. Ok, I haven't been working on it since Feburary last year but still, it's not good. Anyways, I really enjoyed this puzzle and it's so cool to have in your room. I have a slight problem though, I don't really have the space for it... But I'll figure out somewhere to put it (right now it's jammed up with angels and books which you can see in the picture). Each piece in the puzzle is quite big but it was still a bit difficult (for me at least...). The puzzle contains 742 pieces and some extra paper details. On amazon the Golden Hall costs 49.99 $ but I think that it's possible to buy them in store aswell, depending on where you live. I saw on Wrebbits webpage that they also had a Hobbiton, a Citadel of Minas Tirith and an Orthanc-puzzle but I do think that the Meduseld-puzzle was the coolest of the four.

Morning Glories

I'm not the kind of person who is obsessed with comics, I've actually only read a few. However, my teacher (or former teacher now) recommended me some comics so when my cousin came to town and wanted to buy some comics I thought that I would do that aswell. I didn't really know what to buy but eventually I decided for Morning Glories (issues 1-6) which I think is kind of well known in the comic world (?). Anyways, it's about a prestigious prep school to which six students arrive. The students are all very different but they share some common things, like having the same birthday. All seems well at first but after a while they discover that the school isn't as nice as it looked like but have some dark secrets.
 
I really thought that I would like this comic but I was honestly a bit disappointed. The artwork is beautiful but I had some difficulties with understanding where the story was going (although I might've been due to the fact that I had been up partying until 3 a.m. the previous night...) But I did think it was a bit difficult to understand the storyline. Perhaps it's because I usually read books where the writer has to give more discriptions which makes it easier for the reader whereas in comics you have to look at the pictures aswell as reading. And I think that I'm not that used to looking at pictures while I'm reading and therefore I had a hard time knowing where the storyline was going. I also thought that the story was a bit unrealistic, the entire thing with killing off parents and having weird ghost-like things in the school didn't seem very plausible. Perhaps an explanation for these things will be given later in the series but I thought that right now the storyline was kind of odd. Actually, I don't think that I'll be buying the next 6 issues anytime soon because I want to try some other comics which I hopefully will like better.
 
 
Blog news: My goal is to get up three posts each week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I'll probably fail miserably, but I'll try at least :)
