The 2013 Christmas Tag

Oh Hi!

I was browsing through bloglovin to find ideas for this week's blogpost and I came across the 2013 CHRISTMAS tag! (Originally created by Georgina, to see her answers you can click HERE)

So I'm gonna give this a go now as Christmas is my favorite holiday!

1. Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
When I was little we had a synthetic one every year but when I got older we started having a real one as we live in the forest and can just go outside and pick a Christmas tree. I gotta say I don't really care whether it's real or not but it adds to the Christmas "feel" if it's real!

2. You're in a coffee shop, it's december, what do you pick?
I'm not a coffee drinker at all but I like lattes... If it was Starbucks I'd probably get the peppermint mocha or something else holiday-ish haha.

3. Whats your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
I decorated the Christmas tree in my room in gold and I think it looks great like that! 
Our big Christmas tree is always filled with all kinds of colors and I think it looks great like that too!

4. Giving or receiving?
I enjoy both! But as a 15 year old girl who wants everything on earth I gotta say I might prefer receiving a little bit more! But I LOVE Christmas shopping and doing diy gifts too!

5. To mince pie or not to?
I have no idea what this means so that means we don't do/have whatever that is haha.

6. What's your traditional sunday lunch?
Now I'm gonna explain a typical Christmas Eve in our house as in Finland we get the presents on Christmas Eve and have DINNER instead of lunch haha.
Grandma and grandpa always come to our place and grandma and dad makes the greatest christmas food ever which contains ham, fish, meatballs and so many other great things that I now wanna eat! We eat at 4pm because we often don't eat lunch on Christmas Eve. While eating we always watch "Kalle Ankas Jul" (Donald Duck's Christmas) which is the best thing no matter how many times you see it! And it's only on once a year so let's not judge me for being a child and watching that.

7. Christmas Day Fashion
Our family always dresses up! But I have a feeling I'll be in a comfy sweater this year just living life as a lazy teenager loving christmas haha.

8. What's your favorite Christmas song?
I'm in love with every christmas song as long as Michael Bublé sings them! My favorite right now is the "CHRISTMAS, LOTS OF PEOPLE AROUND" because I can just jam to it and scream it out (If I wasn't ill that is.)

9. What's your favorite Christmas film?
Hmmm... The thing is I don't really watch Christmas films. But all the "Home Alone" films gives me christmas feels! Also some funny swedish comedy that comes every year on Christmas Eve. 

10. Open presents before or after lunch Dinner?
As I already explained we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve and we open our presents after dinner! But now here's the thing; We don't get to see our gifts before they turn up outside out door and we carry them in and give them all to each other and then we open them!

I hope you guys enjoyed this little look into how I celebrate Christmas and I tag you all to do this as well!

Oh and stay tuned for something new and fun on Wednesday! Come back here then and see what that is! ;)

Catching Fire Premiere

Oh Hi!

"Catching fire" premiered tuesday night in Finland. And me, as the girl who cried through the whole first movie and has also afterwards read all the books at least 10 times, had to go. Yes, I went to see a movie at 12am on a school night because I'm a rebel like that.

I brought Mikku with me (who you all should know by now). We went there at 10:30pm to queue outside so we would get good seats. Not a lot of people showed up though and I was a little disappointed in the people of *inserts hometown here*. 

Anyways. If you follow me on twitter you will know that a drunk man also came and waited outside while eagerly telling us how beautiful we are. Thanks man. The cops later came to bring him in...
(follow me @itsmaddiehbu for more fun life tweets hihi)

Well they finally let us in and we had to wait almost 1 hour in the theater before the movie started. 

To be really honest with you I had tears in my eyes from the moment I saw the first second of the movie 'til I saw the end text roll by. I was just an EMOTIONAL wreck saying "no no no no no" and "YES YES YES YES" and all that kinda stuff. 

I'm kinda disappointed in the director for leaving out parts that I thought was important and also changing some stuff. But I still think they did a fantastic job with the movie and I can't wait for Mockingjay Part 1 which should come out November 21st 2014!! Only one year away haha.

For those of you who haven't read the books and who haven't yet seen this movie but will go see it (which you all should!) I'm just telling you to mentally prepare because it's a rollercoaster of feelings in 2 and a half hours.

If I had to describe the whole movie in one word I'd say Breathtaking. Not only for the things that happen in it but because of the actors and because of how it's made!

Have you guys seen it? If so, describe it in one word like I did! And if you haven't seen it yet, will you be going to see it?

I'll see you next saturday!
(Also sorry if any O's or K's are missing in any words, my keyboard decided that I don't need those letters anymore and I have to press extra hard on them for them to show up!)

"To This Day" - Video


Today I won't be taking up your time writing about something. Instead I want you to give me seven minutes of your life to watch something to change your life.

Don't just look at it, SEE it. See how words hurt, see how actions hurt, and see how you can scar someone forever by saying one word.

Zoella-Inspired Messy Bun

Oh Hi!

Some weeks ago beauty guru Zoe, also known as Zoella, had her hair done into a nice messy up-do.

I wanted to do something like it to myself and I actually attempted it. (You can see that on @lovezoesugg on instagram)

Yesterday Emma was at my place and I attempted to do the same up-do on her, and I gotta say it turned out really nice.

Here are some pictures!

What do you guys think? Would you let me do YOUR hair? (;

New Glasses & Finished Room (Sneak Peek)


Today I have a really small post for you guys because this is an improvised post at almost 12am.

I finally got my new glasses! I've been waiting to get new glasses forever because my old glasses were giving me a headache and now I finally have my new ones! What do you guys think? Personally I love them!

My room is now also finished, I'm still missing some sort of table and a few bits and pieces for the walls but other than that it's all finished! Therefore I'm showing you my 2 favorite things in my new room, BUT they are blurred (;

Yes, those are birds. But you will not know where they are or how they are in my room just yet (;

This is pretty easy to guess, isn't it?

Well the full room tour will be coming up on youtube after christmas so you can stay tuned for that!
I still hope you enjoyed seeing this sneak peek of my room and I hope you guys are as excited to see the finished room as I am to show it to you!
