Sites of the Month: February 2012

by evilnymphstuff

Every month, new things happen, new discoveries are made. And interests are broadened too. Of course, in February, school gained much more importance too. So I’m simply busier than ever ;)

Anyway, it’s always a pleasure to share my monthly findings with you guys. Enjoy!

overwhelmed by work

I’m much drawn to emo hairstyles and here’s How To Have Emo Hair Without Going To Extremes!

I’ve been playing Sims Medieval and here’s a Complete Guide to it!

I’ve also been researching on journalism because I’m planning to get a first degree in this field so here’s a clear Overview of BA in Journalism, if ever some of you are interested too. I think that the website consists of many other educational fields too.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Down

by evilnymphstuff

What if you were God and you could watch us all from your divine tower up there? What would you see?

You might see the beauty… or the disasters. It could be sunny… or cloudy.

For once, I could catch a peaceful view:

looking down from Caudan Waterfront

A light breeze was refreshing a very hot day while we waited for the cool evening to come…

This photograph was taken from Le Caudan Waterfront in Port Louis, Mauritius.

I was walking up the stairs at that time and for once, I decided to look down.

God looks down all the time. He watches over us. Just like we should watch over the weaker, the poorer.

Water is the Remedy of All…

by evilnymphstuff

As any other children in a family, I go to seek advice from my parents (especially my father) when I’m not feeling good.

***

“Dad, my stomach hurts.”

“Drink some water and it’ll go away.”

***

“Dad, I have a headache.”

“Go and drink a glass of water.”

***

“Dad, I’m feeling nauseous.”

“Drink some water.”

***

“Dad, I’m sick!”

“Drink water.”

regret depressed teen

I regret not to have opened my mouth.

I regret not to have walked towards him.

I regret not having been able to stop him when he went away.

I regret making the same mistakes again and again…

The Day Dedicated to Love

by evilnymphstuff

When I say ‘love’ I mean universal love, i.e. should it be partners’ love, parental love, friendship.

I think it’s too bad to only believe that St. Valentine’s Day is only celebrated by lovers. At school we all wished one another a happy St. Valentine’s Day and one of my friends told me that she was going to go out with her family for dinner tonight. Because they live in love.

So I love my friends and family… and my fellow readers and blogging buddies!

That’s why I’m going to share the awards I received recently and I’m going to ‘pass the love on’ as the saying goes. :)

With all my heart, I thank:

1. MoonLightened Way for the One Lovely Blog Award.

The Lesson Of Life: Death

by evilnymphstuff

The first thing I heard when I woke up today was that Whitney Houston left us this early morning. And now her famous song I will always love you keeps on playing on the radio.

Because I was only a very young child when she was at the climax of her career, I didn’t cry or anything. I remembered I listened to her songs long ago with my mum, who was a big fan. And that made me feel like when Michael Jackson had just died.

Guest Post: I Have Cancer and I Am Beautiful

by evilnymphstuff

I’m still in the mood ‘fight-against-cancer’ so I requested Jackie Clark (I talked about her in my World Cancer Day post) to write a guest post on cancer and beauty, which she did marvellously well on my makeup blog. By the way, it’s going to be the very first guest post of this blog! Yay!

If ever you wish to be a guest blogger here, you just have to email me on magic.daphy@gmail.com (yeah I know it’s childish but I created it when I was 11 and I don’t want to change it! :P)

So here’s what she wrote for An Evil Nymph’s blog for us today :)

I Have Cancer and I Am Beautiful

by Jackie Clark

You have mesothelioma cancer. You have breast cancer. You have uterine cancer.

It’s a fact.

Now comes treatment, doctors, and more prognosis than you could’ve ever imagined in one person’s life.

None of it has anything to do with the fact that you are beautiful. You are a beautiful person and you can’t forget that despite cancer your life is precious. Life is wonderful and you can make the best of every situation—cancer diagnosis or not.

You’ll need to remind yourself of this every day.  You have your loved ones-they’ll support you.  They will give you something to smile about every day, as they always have.

At the end of the day, the only person that can hold you up is you.  You need to maintain your strength, your self-respect and the positivity that will not only carry you, but those that need you.

You’re beautiful and I’ll prove it.

Go look in the mirror.

There is nothing more powerful than looking in the mirror and liking — no, loving — what you see.

Don’t like what’s looking back at you?

Let’s do something about it.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ready

by evilnymphstuff

I’m struggling to find the time to post and read your blogs among school work and activities and family gatherings… I’m going to be super busy this year and I’m sorry if ever I don’t post for a long time or visit your pages less often than before. It’s not because I’ve lost interest in these, I assure you.

So let’s move on to this week’s photo challenge: ready!

Alright my cousin and I were trying to shoot a photo like we were running on the water because its depth was so shallow… But well we’re bad actors! Lol!

Nothing Can Steal Your Beauty – no, not even Cancer.

by evilnymphstuff

Yesterday was World Cancer Day, and earlier, in my makeup blog, I had the pleasure to welcome a guest blogger, Jackie Clark who wrote an article on women having cancer, to tell them that it doesn’t mean that they have to stop caring about their body, their beauty… You can read the post here: Keeping Beauty in Your Life.

Jackie writes in honour of women having mesothelioma cancer and has her own blog: The Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance Blog. You can also follow her on Twitter @CancerAlliance and believe me, her posts are worth it.

Spring in; It’s Brigid’s Day today!

by evilnymphstuff

Hey guys, I wanted to post earlier but I was bothered by the exams results and school and all…

Anyway today is my favourite Wiccan festival – excluding Samhain and Beltane which are the two main sabbats of Wicca – which represents the beginning of spring: Imbolc or (what I like to call it best…) Brigid’s day.

After the coldness of winter, spring at last begins to show its colourful flowers and green leaves… The sleep is over and a new season of growth and beauty has sprung up.

This is a fun craft to do on this special day which is Brigid’s cross. I did one last year with multicolour straws and I kept it for this year:
