2013 Chronicle

Wow, this year has really been busy! It’s had its ups and downs, but luckily, mostly ups πŸ™‚ Here’s a little chronicle over the past year’s adventures, enjoy!

January:
Finished my first semester in Archival Science and almost immediately got started on the next one. Was waayy too busy for shoots though, my head was mostly buried in books.. I did however acquire my second pair of latex gloves from All You Need Is GL<3VES ^^

February:
So much studying… But I got my shooting game back on with a lovely winter photo shoot together with KT Twisted photography.

March:This was the month that saw the light of the first publication I fixed all by myself, the second overall publication in total πŸ™‚ This was a huge milestone for me as it was in a quite well-known magazine, The Cat’s Meow Magazine. I also did some shoots with Natalie G Sundling, including an Easter themed one πŸ™‚

May:
Took a small break from modelling due to the heaps of studies that needed to be finished. I also started a summer job as a registrar that would end up lasting until the end of October.

June:
I aced the second semester in Archival Science! This was also the month when I got to work with Belinda Bartzner – Photography for the first time.

July:
Had several shoots this month, including two with two new photographers: Linda Florin and Kitty Carol. I also got to work with a new makeup artist, Josephine Levander πŸ™‚ It was a wonderful summer, even though I spent most of it working.

August:
This month I went to my first Victorian Picnic with a bunch of friends. It was a lot of fun and I hope to go again this year πŸ™‚ I also did a new shoot with Belinda Bartzner – Photography and landed my second publication in Kultur Magazine!

September:
Worked, went to a food festival my honey, Mashiara, and bought my first pair of Black Milk leggings. I even did a shoot with them together with Natalie G Sundling ^^ We also shot some pretty hair accessories for a designer, The Psychobilly Shop UK.

October:
Had my third photoshoot with Belinda Bartzner – Photography. Unfortunately though, her camera got stolen and all the pictures were lost forever. So this photo is the only one that will ever be seen from it until we can get a chance to do it again..

November:
My grandmother got out of hospital after being there for 4 months. I also started my new internship and had lots of shoots planned. Illness and stupid weather got them all canceled though so I spent most of this month working and studying.

December:
Did my second photoshoot with Kitty Carol, some lovely portraits (photo coming up soon, promise!). And I also did one of my favourite shoots all year with Natalie G Sundling and my latest pair of Black Milk leggings ❀

Talk about an interesting year.. I’ve done so many things, my life has been moving upwards and I’ve got to spend time with some really lovely people. I can only hope 2014 will be even better πŸ™‚

Making Summer

It’s June, it’s summer and I’m trying to finish all my remaining school work before the weekend. It’s not that much work really, I’ve spent most of my time whining about things in my last home exam. Not whining about it, but whining IN it πŸ˜› I’ve done it before, although to a lesser degree, but my teacher seemed to apporve of it then. So I’m hoping for lots of points this time ^^

I’ve also had my lovely honey Mashiara here this past week. We’ve celebrated our fifth anniversary (yes, we’ve been together for that long <3) and otherwise not done much but enjoy each other’s company. It’s been nice to have him here, but I’ll miss him like hell when he leaves..

Next week I’m finally starting my new job properly. I’ll be working full time so posts will be slow to arrive. But I have a few ideas for upcoming posts, mostly photo compilations, but I think you’ll enjoy them πŸ™‚

I also have a few photoshoots planned for the summer. I won’t tell you exactly what they’ll be yet, but I promise they will be awesome πŸ™‚ A bit of latex, a bit of corsetry, some colour and other fun things ^^ This is the nice thing about having a routine job, it makes me feel more creative and it gives me ideas for shoots and other projects. Because I am planning for other creative projects aside from modelling. I have to do something else to expand my horizons and these new ideas of mine will take me there.

But that’s for later, now it’s time for ice cream and make the most of summer while it lasts πŸ™‚

Update Time!

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I’ve been a very busy bee these past few weeks. My paper is done and defended, I’m only waiting to get my grade on it. I’m currently writing my final home exam, due next week. It’s an easy one, but it’s hard to find the motivation to write it – and to not be overly stuck-up and “yell” at everything! But that’s my problem with “discuss freely” questions, I love them but I can’t help but being very bitter and sarcastic when discussing the topic πŸ˜› But it has given me good points in the past, so who knows? Maybe lightning strikes twice? πŸ˜‰

I’ve also started my summer job, being a registrator at a government office. Lots of routine work but I like it ^^ It gives me money so I can get one or two new latex pieces, a new corset and a new phone. I can’t complain about that πŸ™‚ It might mean though that it will be a bit quiet here since I’ll be working full time and won’t have the same amount of time to write things every few days. But I hope you’ll still stick around, there are going to be some lovely pics posted since I’m planning shoots for the summer πŸ™‚

This little baby will come out to play!

Oh and I got a new dress recently :3 I’m celebrating five whole years together with my beloved Mashiara and I thought I should have something new ^^ I’m getting him something really special for our anniversary and sooo hope he will like it! No, I won’t say anything since I know he reads my blog πŸ˜‰

New Stuff!

My decision to take a break from modelling seems to have been a pretty good one. I don’t feel so stressed and can focus completely on my studies. Also, I’m feeling more creative. I keep getting new ideas, and hints to ideas, that I want to do. That was one thing that I was missing, the feeling of being really creative and the desire to create art.

The funny thing is, I started to feel creative when I got my latest corset – the dark green overbust that I bought from Tea Time. And I felt it again when I got my latest treasure, a beautiful necklace made from a vintage syringe.
And the lovely summery weather might also have something to do with it. Now I can finally do some proper location shoots, and I’ve missed that a lot πŸ™‚

I will stay on my break until June 15th, after that I will only be shooting on weekends since I will be working full time. But I already have a few things planned ^^

Let’s end this post with a couple of pics of my inspiring treasures!

Birthday Coming Up!

Yes, indeed, tomorrow’s my birthday. I can’t believe it’s been a year since my last one, I don’t really feel older. But then again, I rarely feel like the exact age that I am πŸ˜› So far I’m not feeling the effects of any age related crisis, I don’t really have time for it. Got waayy too much to do to even think about. Which is probably why I’m having a hard time feeling that I’m getting one year older tomorrow.

But hey, I never say no to something that gives me a reason to eat cake for three days πŸ˜‰

So far I like birthdays. I like baking cakes, getting presents and birthday wishes ^^ It will be interesting though to see if it will change as I get older.

This weekend I’ll be a busy bee baking stuff in between paper writing, general studying and some other things. I’ve got a shoot next week, my last one before I hand in my paper. I need to focus on my studies, but I can treat myself to one fun thing per week. I aim to please myself.

But back to birthdays! I really do hope that I get one thing that I really want: theatre tickets to a musical I really really want to see. Money is not a bad thing either, then I can update my fetish wardrobe a bit ^^ And put some aside for a new fall coat, I really need one :3

I feel I have to end this post with a photo, so here’s one taken just before my birthday last year.

Oh and if you’re curious to know how old I’m turning.. The number is 27 ^^

Future Plans & Doings

I know I’m not all that good at writing contiuously here, but there are a lot of things going on right now so bear with me.

I’m working on my final paper, due in the beginning of May. It’s not a long paper, but I’ve also got another course running at the same time, so I’m bringing out all my time managent skills. At least I’m writing down things and reading at the same time. It gives me headaches, but hey, hopefully it will be worth it πŸ˜‰

Next week I’m celebrating my birthday. I’m still trying to work out what I want for birthday cakes (I always have two) and if I want to bake something else. So far I’ve decided on a yummie pavlova with lime curd and tasty fruits, some kind of chocolate cake and mini white chocolate cupcakes with a tasty frosting. I still have to decide on the frosting.

My honey is coming up to celebrate my birthday with me, and that makes me really happy πŸ™‚ I haven’t seen him for way too long..

Also, I’ll be shooting with Natalie G Sundling and Colorfulmakeups again! An outdoor shoot with pretty shiny things, it’s going to be great!

Since I’m being very busy though, I’ve had to make the decision on cutting back on all my photoshoots. I’ve only got two booked (or well, I’m trying to reschedule one to happen very soon) until the beginning of May, and that’s probably how it’s going to end up. So to the designers waiting for me to shoot stuff for them, please be a little patient with me. I’ll get to everything as soon as I can, but I need to watch over my nerves so I don’t keel over from all the stress :/

I can’t tell you what we’re going to shoot, but I can give you a hint of what will be in one of them – my darling gloves from All You Need Is Gloves ❀

Studies & New Heels

I’m currently hard at work, writing a home exam in a subject I’m not quite sure I understand. For once I don’t think I’m going to feel proud of what I’ll hand in.. I don’t like the feel of it, but I guess that’s how it is sometimes. I only wish I understood it all more since it’s going to be an important part of my working career. But hopefully it will sort itself out, hopefully…

In happier news, I picked up a new pair of high heels today. Somehow I managed to convince my beloved Mashiara that I wanted them really really badly, so I got the thumbs up to order them ^^ We call it an early birthday present for me πŸ˜‰ I could have just ordered them anyway, but I tend to prefer to ask him since I then won’t have to deal with “Do you really need those?” in THAT kind of voice (come on, you know which one I mean…). He’s so sweet, my honey ❀

Anyways, here they are! I’ll try and get a picture of them on as soon as I can πŸ™‚

New Latex & Making Plans

I’ve been suffering from a nasty cold this past week so I’ve spent most of my time sleeping on the sofa. I probably would get better a lot quicker if I din’t have lectures and such to go to, but this course I’m taking is rather difficult to grasp so I don’t have much of a choice. I’m slowly getting there though, but when you get tired just from putting on a latex skirt you realize it’s not all gone πŸ˜›

And speaking of latex skirts, I won myself a free one from Collective Chaos a while ago and yesterday I finally felt well enough to try it on properly. It’s so pretty, I really love it ^^

Hopefully I’ll get to do some shoots with it this spring and summer, I’ve got some nice ideas for it πŸ™‚

And since we’re on the topic of ideas, I’m currently planning a couple of shoots with a bunch of photographers. Two are booked to be done in a couple of weeks and I’m really looking forward to them. By now you’ve probably realized that I love creating shoots based around a distinct theme. These two really have that, they’re both different from each other but will be equally awesome to do πŸ™‚ One is also with a new designer!

I may be stressed out over my studies, but this is just one of the things that keep me from going utterly insane πŸ˜‰

2012 Chronicle

2013 is well under way and I’ve been busy like hell with Christmas, New Year’s and schoolwork. But I thought it would be fun to entertain you with a chronicle over my past year ^^

January:
I started on a new adventure called “Studies in French” at University. It was the first time I properly touched the language since high school and, boy, did it show… But I also had some fun with a wintery shoot with my friend Josefine JΓΆnsson.

February:

Not the brightest month, I think. Lots of schoolwork to do, plus due to outer forces my honey wasn’t able to join me for Valentine’s Day. But I did start up this blog and had a great shoot with Josefine JΓΆnsson, featuring my favourite top hat from Imperial Fiddlesticks Emporium πŸ™‚

March:
This month I went to see an exhibition of Ai Weiwei, my favourite Chinese artist. I also had my first shoot with photographer Natalie G Sundling πŸ™‚

April:
The month of my birthday, even though I didn’t do much to celebrate it ^^ A new shoot with Natalie G Sundling was on the agenda, as was my very first shoot with photographer TzR. This was also the first time I met the makeup artist Colorfulmakeups and my co-model for a shoot, Starfucked. This time I got to shoot my favourite dress from Maebelle Latex ❀

May:
All the intense studying really took its toll on me so I decided to take break and not do any new shoots until the end of the spring semester. However, I had my first interview published online at the Swedish blog Skofetischist. I got to geek out a bit about philosophy and fetish fashion, which I always love ^^

June:
After a break I finally got the energy back to do shoots again and it couldn’t have started off in a better way. For a long time I’ve wanted to to a photoshoot project with some of my old LARP/roleplaying characters, and after contacting photographer KT Twisted Photography I got my chance πŸ™‚ It all turned out really well and I now only hope to continue on with the project ^^

July:
Summertime and I had two great shoots, one with a new photographer. She’s Mynumberis911 and we did a shoot featuring a new custom dress from Maebelle Latex with an Asian feel. I also got to shoot a bunch of lovely merchandise for Imperial Fiddlesticks Emporium.

August:
Attended a teaparty to watch my dear friend Tea Time perform ❀ I also added a new tattoo on my left arm and had a photoshoot together with photographer Capsicon and co-model Kya Wolfwritten.

September:
This month started off with a whole new adventure when I decided to start studying Archival Science! It was probably one of the best choices I made this whole year ^^ No photoshoots this month though, but it was still a good one.

October:
Work, work, work… Got to do a couple of shoots though with both Natalie G Sundling and Josefine JΓΆnsson. The one with Josefine I had been working on since the beginning of the year, a steampunk one, and it turned out so beautiful! I got a couple of designers on board to create custom stuff for me: Maebelle Latex, Viola Lahger and Miss Overdose.

November:
Got stressed out like hell due to the massive amount of schoolwork that got piled up on me this month. Two major projects and home exams that was going to be presented and handed in within just a few weeks of each other can really drive one mad… But I did get my first interview in fIXE Magazine published πŸ™‚

FixeMagInterview

 
December:
This month was my highlight, I think. I got my first proper publication with the steampunk shoot I did in October, in Kultur Mag πŸ™‚ I also had a new shoot with KT Twisted Photography, which is always much fun, celebrated Christmas and New Year’s with my honey and got a bit overstuffed with candy and sugar ^^

There you have it, my 2012 πŸ™‚ Now I’m hoping that 2013 will be awesome with lots of new opportunities ❀

Keep the Sanity!

Things are about to get really stressful now..

Next week I’ve got two doctor’s appointment that will decide how this winter’s medical treatments are going to be scheduled. There’s UVB light treatment for my skin and allergy vaccinations to prepare for the pollen season next spring. So there’s nothing seriously wrong with me, but these are things that have to be done if I’ll make it through this winter all right – and have a decent pollen defense next year.

I wouldn’t be all that bothered with it if it wasn’t also for the fact that I have two college courses that run parallel to each other – with one huge project and two home exams to finish them off. There’s going to be a lot of issues trying to fit all the schedules together, and with that comes a mounting feeling of stress and to not have any time. I don’t like that, it’s not good for me.

Stress increases the risk of running into that all too familiar brick wall, and I certainly don’t have any time for that!

That’s the reason why I haven’t been crazy with booking and planning shoots. I do have some stuff planned, so don’t worry about that, but I’m not stressing anything. Being creative in front of the camera is wonderful fun, but I have to make priorities and right now my health has to come first. Without that I can’t function and nothing good will come out of it.

Be patient, I will be back with awesomeness ❀
