A very nice birthday!

I turned 22 today, and I’ve had a great day. I haven’t done anything special, just spent the day with my parents, and my two siblings came over. We ordered chinese food (classy, I know) and had some cake. It was just enough to have a wonderful day. <3

My mum made me a nice breakfast to get my day off to a good start, and it really worked. I got a gift card from my sister at the breakfast table as well, and will soon be shopping for even more books. *happy dance*

Yesterday, I started reading A Feast for Crows, the fourth part in A Song of Ice and Fire. So after breakfast, I decided to read some more. Didn’t get very far though, just one chapter. :P I had a hard time concentrating with my family chatting away and some flowers right next to me. I ended up holding my phone and taking the classic “book and flowers” shot, but with a modern twist…

Please bear in mind, I took it without much thought, using my phone. It isn’t meant as a masterpiece, just as a fun pic during my birthday. I think it turned out quite good for what it is.

My mum’s been nagging me for a while about a birthday gift, and have even hinted about getting me a doll, but I honestly don’t know what I would ask for. Mosts of the things I really enjoy, like my dolls, are so damn expensive that it feels like a waste of money… They are very dear to me though, and it’s always nice to make the family bigger. Ah well, the doll I’ve fallen in love with sold out today, so it doesn’t really matter anyway. But if she comes in stock again, I’m pretty sure I have to buy her…

I’m gonna go now, and spend the last couple of hours of my very special day either watching youtube videos or reading. Hope you’ve had a great day!

Miku has come home

So, after an extremely long wait, my Nendoroid Miku Append has finally come home. I ordered her back in January, and was supposed to get her in February. Unfortunately, the shop I used has had some problems with their deliveries from asia, so everything’s been pushed forward again and again. But I’ve got her now at least! :D

I haven’t taken any real pictures of her yet, just a few when she got out of the box. Enjoy:

Miku says hello!

Hopefully, the nice weather we’ve been having will stay so I’ll be able to get some outdoor photos of her. A few pics of her among some spring flowers would be great! I just need to get rid of this darned cold first.

My very first Nendoroid!

Back in December, I fell in love with the little fellas called Nendoroids. They’re adorable little things, specially designed to make you spend all your hard earned money. ‘Cos, it’s not possible just ordering one, oh no! They have to be together in groups, you see, and these groups keep growing until they’ve got control over you…

I just realised I might freak one of my friends out right now, who thinks dolls are evil, wants to take over the world and/or kill you in your sleep. :P

Anyhow, yesterday, my first girl appeared in the mail. I haven’t had time to take all that many pictures yet. Yesterday I just snapped a few with my phone, but today I got the actual camera out for a bit. Here’s a quick peek, and I hope you like it!

Enjoying the outdoors

She’s called Yune and comes from the charming anime Ikoku Meiro no Croisée. To be fair, I fell in love with the figure first, but couldn’t justify buying her without having watched the show. So, I wathched it in two or three days, and wanted her even more afterwards. ^__^;

I’m waiting for two more, and, if I’m lucky, I might get to see some in actual shops when I’m off to Düsseldorf in a month. *excited*
