Lady Melisandre of Assai

Lady Melisandre of Asshai is a priestess of R'hllor in service to Stannis Baratheon. Melisandre has prophetic powers that give her partial knowledge of future events. Unlike many other people in Westeros with access to prophecy, Melisandre has absolute faith in her own interpretation. She believes that Stannis is the messianic figure of R'hllor prophecy called Azor Ahai. She counsels him so that he can gain the necessary power to fight the Great Other, the enemy of R'hllor.

Melisandre is both beautiful and frightening so I decided to do a makup look based on her and the cult of R'hllor. I did not go for the classic red hair and red contacts but tried to shape my face a little unnatural and add some rhinestones for some extra fiery sparkle.

July 2011 Favourites

Der Sommer lässt auf sich warten, obgleich der Juli schon fast vorbei ist. Die für die Jahreszeit zu kühlen Temperaturen stören mich als eine der wenigen nicht, im Gegenteil, ich genieße es in meinem Urlaub nicht zu schwitzen. Hier habe ich für euch meine Juli Favoriten zusammengefasst.

Summer keeps us waiting, although July is almost over. Temperatures are reasonably low for this time of the year, which I don't mind at all. I enjoy my holidays without sweating and hiding from the sun. Here are my July favourites.

Gesicht/Face:
Im Urlaub bevorzuge ich es statt regulärer Foundation Tinted Moisturizer und Cream Blushes zu benutzen. Den UD Blush habe ich eigentlich nur wegen des Namens gekauft, die Farbe ist traumhaft schön und erzeugt einen gesunden Sommer-Glow ohne Bronzer zu verwenden.

When I'm on vacation I prefer to use tinted moisturizer and cream blushes instead of regular full coverage foundation and powder blush. I chose the UD blush because of the name (everyone needs a fetish, right?) and the colour is surprisingly wearable and gives an amazing summer glow without using bronzer.

  • MAC Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15 Light
  • UD Afterglow Glide on Cheek Tint Fetish
Augen/ Eyes:
  • UDPP Sin
  • MAC Eyeshadows Short Shorts, Parisian Skies and Hocuy Pocus
  • MAC Chromaline Pencil Marine Ultra
  • MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil Glided White


Glücklicherweise konnte ich 2 Lidschatten aus der Blogger's Obsession Kollektion ergattern, Parisian Skies und Hocus Pocus sehen toll zusammen aus.

Luckily I got my hands on the Blogger's Obsession eyeshadows, Parisian Skies and Hocus Pocus look gorgeous together.

Lippen/ Lips:
  • MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick Ultra Darling
  • Chanel Glossimer No. 277

Allfälliges/ Randomness:
  • Essie Lion around and Your Hut or mine nailpolish
  • Reading Home and Garden Magazines and deciding in which colour to paint my walls

Im August steht erstmal mein Mädels-Urlaub an, darauf freue ich mich schon. Außerdem werde ich A Song of Fire and Ice fertiglesen.

Next month I'm looking forward to my girly-girl vacation and to finish reading A Song of Fire and Ice.

The Night's Watch

Night gathers,
and now my watch begins.
It shall not end until my death.
I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children.
I shall wear no crowns and win no glory.
I shall live and die at my post.
I am the sword in the darkness.
I am the watcher on the walls.
I am the fire that burns against the cold,
the light that brings the dawn,
the horn that wakes the sleepers,
the shield that guards the realms of men.
I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch,
for this night and all the nights to come.

Lately I spend my days reading George R. R. Martin's A Song of Fire and Ice. So I decided to do some looks based on the novels starting with the Night's Watch. Unfortunately I can't really join the Night's Watch because I'm female but I could not resist taking the black and pretend to be on the Wall.

Arielle

I don't know when
I don't know how
But I know something's starting right now
Watch and you'll see
Some day I'll be
Part of your world

Standing Stones

In one of these lonely Orkney Isles
There dwelled a maiden fair.
Her cheeks were red, her eyes were blue
She had yellow curling hair.
Which caught the eye and then the heart
Of one who could never be
A lover of so true a maid
Or fair a form as she.

Standing Stones of the Orkney Isles
Gazing out to sea
Standing Stones of the Orkney Isles
Bring my love to me.


Lyrics by Loreena McKennit

The bride of Khaine

The Brides of Khaine, or Witch Elves, are one of the major powers in Druchii society. They run the Temples of Khaine, where they are responsible for keeping the Cauldrons of Blood filled with the fresh blood of sacrificial victims. When the Dark Elves go to war, a cadre of Witch Elves accompanies the army, eager to prove themselves in the eyes of their god. For them the battlefield is just another temple of Khaine, and the screams of the dying are praises sung in honor of the bloody-handed god. The Witch Elves are led by Hellebron, though many still owe loyalty to Morathi.
