Weekly Photo Challenge: Winter

In Mauritius we are currently not in winter but in summer! Yep I always celebrate Christmas in summer ^^  But winter can also be associated with our moments of sadness and depression. When we feel bad, winter has settled in our mind. It’s all gloomy and dull…
But then we only need to light a match to melt the snow, to think positively again 🙂

This was my little cousins playing with sorts of firecraking sticks (harmless and beautiful!) for New Year.

In this wonderful period of renaissance (New Year) we should light up our inner winters and let the sun shine through!

An Evil Nymph is Proud to Present… 2011 in review!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,000 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.

Wow WordPress really impressed me with that!!! This report thing with the breath-taking colourful design is so awesome 😀 Thank you to all my visitors and commenters! ♥ Wish you all again a happy new year ;D

Sorry for the irregularity of my posting habit of today lol! Two posts in a row! Whew! Don’t worry, just go and enjoy yourself, I won’t bother your inbox anymore for this very first day of 2012 xD Let’s party in the outside world as well haha!

New Year’s Vid!

Hey this is just a short post to show you how my family and I celebrated the last midnight gong together… with the longest firecrakers!

Enjoy!

It’s the worse editing I’ve ever done LOL because this was filmed with my s2 and it was the first time that I was using it for this purpose and the thing is that the video was upside down when I imported it into the laptop so I had to meddle with my Sony Vegas a little bit…

Anyway hope you all had fun!

Christmas Presents – in Advance –

Hey I hope that everyone is enjoying the Christmas and New Year holidays 🙂 For Christmas, as I don’t believe in Santa Claus anymore LOL, I usually ask a special present and I get it in advance. Yes indeed IN ADVANCE. Why?

i) I’m so excited that I can’t wait,
ii) I prefer to give gifts instead of receiving one for Christmas.

I love the fact that I can surprise my little sister or help my parents wrap the presents. I like to be Sister Christmas you see 🙂 This holiday season is a time for giving, sharing… 🙂

And for those good deeds (that everyone should do), sometimes in the end I get an additional gift that appears in the middle of the early morning (after midnight lol) under the Christmas tree… like the time when my parents totally surprised me by offering me Dan Brown’s latest “The Lost Symbol” in the original cover + a book guide to it!!!

Merry Samhain’s Eve!

Yeah it’s finally Halloween!

I hadn’t had the opportunity to celebrate it and I feel tired because of two exams papers I had to take today. Anyway, that doesn’t mean I didn’t really do anything for Halloween! And first of all I prepared my blog post for it 🙂

You can check out my makeup Halloween post + outfit special Samhain HERE!!

When I came home the first thing I did was to do my Parshell cross! It’s an old Irish tradition for All Hallow’s Eve. Simple and fun to do ^^ check out how HERE. My Parshell of the year:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Opportunity

“Opportunity”. This is the theme given for this week and we have to interpret this idea into a photo.

First we must define this term:

So what is opportunity to me? It’s a path, a road to success, to a better life. It’s when you have the ability to choose what is best for you. It’s hope.

I’m on the roof of my house. It’s early in the evening but the sun is setting already. I love to go there because where I live, this is the only ‘room’ when sunlight hits the most. That’s where we hung our clothes for them to dry LOL

Halloween Plans? Need some Advice!

We’re in October and in a few weeks my favourite festival of all time will be occuring: Halloween or Samhain’s Eve!

Without beating about the bush, let me tell you the problem: here, we never celebrate Halloween. It’s just not part of our cultures as in Mauritius we are most of the Asian origins. In addition to that, on Monday I started my O-level exams and that’s why I might not be posting much (I’m soo sorry for that!) and I will be taking part in these international exams until November 15 (arg!!). The horrible thing is that on October 31 I will have to sit at examinations!!!

I shop, You shop, An Evil Nymph shops…

Hey yesterday I went shopping after maths tutoring with my friends and we made our biggest purchase at a shop called “Creative Home” which sells lots of beads, and other little things that you can use to create your own jewelleries or to customize anything else.

Here are what I bought and which conveys much my meaning of an Evil Nymph:

black skull bead

A black skull! It’s a pendant and I really liked it as it represents the growing gothic side of me 🙂 and evil of course! It’s sort of like a mirror: do you see my hand holding the camera through it?
