I'm not really an arrogant A hole. But I am rather unorganized. And very busy.
I tend to forget to answer questions I get in my comments. Sometimes it can take me a long time to answer blog related mails written to me too.

So I thought I'd do this thing were you can ask me anything and I will answer almost everything!

This is my sneaky-suspicious look when I say, ok, go ahead and ask then.

I'll answer a couple of questions/requests I remember now straight away
1. Make up
I get lots of questions about makeup. But the thing is, I will never do a makeup tutorial - there are tons of youtube tutorials out there that go for the same look and they're all pretty much similar to each other. I do the same make up almost every day, just make it heavier and add some glitter for shows. And in the end you still have to see what suits your own face the best.

But I will do a post about makeup; which products I use and some tricks I rely on, that I promise!

2. Photos
"I'm always curious about whether you take all your own photos and how you always manage to get the lighting so spot on? "
Well, first of all I have a pretty good camera. Not a great one, but an OK that can take great pics if you do it right. If there's not time nor good light for getting it right, I fix the photos in Photoshop afterwards, Levels, Curves etc. Basically there's nothing I can't do in Photoshop, although I prefer to get away as easily as possible. (Well as you can see the photo above has some more playing around than just levels and curves - sometimes that's real fun too - especially if you should be working with something different than making yourself look all 1939 for example :) I indulge quite a lot what I like to call "forced photography" -heheh- as I have my sister or a friend take some pics for my blog ("You have to take some pictures for my blog now!"), but I do take many of them on my own too.

That's it. If you post a question here during the weekend and perhaps the beginning of next week too I promise I'll answer them all by next weekend in a post!

Oh, and if you come here a lot and react a lot and I have forgotten to link you let me know!

i would love to know the story behind your "förlåt mig" tattoo! been a follower of yours for a long time and always wanted to ask. of course i understand if its personal and you dont want to share, but just thought i´d ask! you have a wonderful blog, keep up the good work :)

Do you promise to answer me if I send you an email and ask about where to go and what to see in Helsinki if I ever end up there? I'd love a night on the town in Helsinki. Oh! And I know this is the first time I'm commenting (I'm not much of a commenter), but I'd just like to say that I've followed your blog forever and you are such a style influence on me (apart from the fact that you have a little (alot) more money than an art student with a crappy payed job on the side). Can't wait to move to Berlin to score some better vintage than here in Oslo. Say when if your in Oslo and need someone to take you drinking and possibly dancing.

Much love

How do you manage such a hectic lifestyle with freelancing, sewing, your job at the harbor, and burlesque and still manage to look absolutely fabulous?

I love dark/bright lipstick shades, but whenever I wear lipstick, my lips get chapped. Is there any trick to avoid chapping?

If I put lip balm on my lips before applying lipstick, my the lipstick starts "sliding" off my lips even though I have used lipliner.

Any tips on how to get the lipstick stay on your lips and how to avoid chapping at the same time?
