Asha Greyjoy

We do not sow!
Words of House Greyjoy

When Asha appeared in the books I liked her from the start. She is fierce and proud, and defies traditional ironborn gender roles by commanding her own ship, the Black Wind, and leading men into battle. I like the kraken House Greyjoy chose for their coat of arms, so I wore it around my neck.

Illusion d'Ombres de Chanel

Last week Chanel's fall collection found it's way to the Dark Tower. Frankly, I am a sucker for fall collections, it does not mater which brand or which theme copanies are bringing up. Spring and summer collections are nice to have but the fall collections make my makeup-loving heart sing. This may sound crazy (and it IS crazy) but I enjoy shopping for fall makeup more than I enjoy shopping makeup the rest of the year.

Chanel's collection excited me when I first saw the nailpolishes on the internet, especially Graphite. This was my dream come true: Black Pearl has a fall-y grown up brother! Just a littly side-note for all of you: I went through one entire bottle of Black Pearl because I love this polish so much. As time went by more info about the collection was released, I sucked up every photo and article and was drawn more and more into it. In June I went to my local Marionnaud and asked the ladies there if I could make a reservation for some items. Guess what they told me? 'We are sorry we are not getting the collection at all.' I was so sad and thought about ordering from Hana aka Mad about MAC. Unfortunately she got some very bad feedback from fellow bloggers by that time and I was not willing to take the risk that my Chanel package might get lost. I feared that the items I wanted would be sould out quickly in Autria and I would not be able to get my hands on them at all. But then my friend and hippo sister Nyota put an end to my Chanel-agony by personnal shopping my desired items for me. Thank you so much, my dear!

This is all I got in all it's sleek black chanellesque glory:

For sure I got all three nailpolishes and I love Graphite the most. This fall I will be having a passionate love affair with you, my sparkely gourgeous new friend! Sorry, Black Pearl, but I can't resist your brother ;-)
Chanel released new eyeshadows which are called Illusion D'Ombre (they will remain in the permanent line if I'm correct). All colours are gorgeous, the black one looks like a blackend night sky. But I decided to get the taupe one Illusoire and did not regret it. You know I am sort of married to my MAC Blackground Paint Pot and I don't need another sparkely black base. The staying power of the eyeshadow is great and I really love the colour because I can wear it on a daily basis to the office.
As I loved the Rose Platine eyepencil which came out with the summer collection so much I had to get Khaki Platine, which is a gorgeous addition to my beloved MAC Photo Realism quad. It stays put perfectly on the lid (as a base or as a liner) and on the waterline as well.


I skipped the eyeshadow quad, the blusher, the lipsticks and the glossimers because there are other fall collection items from other brands that caught my eye that I prefer over them. Did you get anything from the Chanel fall collection?

Cersei Lannister

Hear me roar!
Words of House Lannister

My favourite character from House Lannister is Tyrion but unfortunatly I could not transform into a dwarf. So I chose Cersei. I did not opt for the classic red and gold and red from their sigil but for neutral lips and golden brown tones to achieve a sultry eye makeup for the Lady of Casterly Rock.

My Lannister lion Rasputin joined me for this picture. He is a big boy now. ;-)
