Festival weekend

We visited our local festival this weekend; Sabaton Open Air or Rockstad Falun (as it was called before). There were no particular bands I wanted to see or no band that left a special moment feeling in me except Sabaton itself. 

But anyway it's a nice festival to visit. Happy people, no fights and well organised.  There were many families with children and I'm thinking of bringing my boys for one of the days next year.  Alfons would love to see Sabaton. I bought him a band tshirt to comfort him instead this year.

Crystal Viper, a polish band were playing with so much energy that I ended up just smiling, even if they didn't play my kind of music.

I found a bottle of purple semi-permanent dye that I tried. It was far more close the colour that I wanted but not enough :P
I bought Illamasquas dark metallic green lipgloss. Even if It was wery rich in pigment it ended up very transparent on the lips just looking weird. Black lipstick didn't work either. Black eyeliner worked better but it wasn't enough. If I had to apply a covering layer it would been dripping from my mouth.
I don't bother you with the bad noncovering lipstick so this photo above is just from instagram with filters and bla bla.
I made this flower brooch a year ago ca. With a hairpin it worked nice as a decoration to a simple ponytail. A little of the glitter has fallen off, so I'll have to mend it.
I did a big mistake the first night and used heels. They weren't looking very nice after that night. It was one of the flea market shoes so they werent expensive.
I used fake converse the rest of the weekend with extra in soles and changed laces to silk ribbons. 
Stuffed handbag from Restyle (I carried my jacket in it + everything else one need)
Underskirt worn as a skirt from Insomnias Attic (I used leggings under fyi)

Lovely fireworks in the end of Saturday night.

Bat fit update.  I tried to run a few times during the vacation, it felt wonderful and it did wonders to my heavy body. BUT. My knees sounded like cornflakes and have started to hurt :(. Just because you have been able to run before, theres no guarantee that your body can later. Damn! I have to find another way to stay in shape. Every other morning I set the alarm a lot earlier than I'm used to and take a morning walk together with Johan. These mornings are beautiful with soft mist by the river.
I arrive at work fresh as a peach. But when it's time to go home I soo tired!

  1. You looked wonderfull, even if the lipstick might not have worked out as you planned! We have a similar taste, I own the bag and necklace as well... ;)

    And good that you are still doing something for yourself with the concert and bat fit. It's just so easy to become caught up in everyday's stress and to forget to do something good for yourself...

    1. Thanks :) I actually hate seeing myself on photos, but I know for myself it's nice to have a face on the one who blogs.

  2. You look lovely in your photos! That necklace in the top photo is stunning and your flower broach is so cute.

    You made me laugh with the description of your knees sounding like cornflakes! That's what my knees sound like when I walk up stairs. I've had bad knees since I was a kid, so running has never been the best exercise for me either. :)

    1. I had to come up with something that anyone could relate to because in swedish I described it with a swedish crunchy chokolate bar. :)

  3. Wow, you look gorgeous! I love the idea of a long, poofy skirt with converse and your accessories are also beautiful. :)

    I've seen Sabaton live once a couple of years ago on a festival when I waz still working for the radio and I could record a short intrwiev with them after the show. They were awesome. :)

    1. Thanks. These shoes were the only ones I found I could use.

      It's the kids that made me listen to Sabaton, not my first choice. With the change of band members they have become really good, their drumplayer is awesome.

  4. You look so good in the pictures! Especially in the one with the Restyle necklace. It's true, that lipstick is not really pigmented, but maybe it was for the best... I don't know how green lips would've looked like, but I guess the effect would've looked a little weird. Unless weird was what you were after: in that case, go for it XD by the way, I like how it looked on you. Your make-up was very nice.
    Also, your hair does look purplish in the pics :)

  5. What a wonderful feeling it must be to be able to take your own children to music festivals! I always admire couples with children at festivals, it's the most adorable thing ever!
    I'm so sorry to hear about your lipgloss.
    And I must insist on how beautiful you look in these pictures!

  7. You look gorgeous!!!

    I love the first necklace! Is it by Pink Absinthe?

    I also love the Restyle bag!

    I know what you mean, running does not feel too good on my knees. I like zumba, it is energetic cardio and does wonders. The dance moves are silly and everyone looks silly, so you do not have to worry about looking worse than everyone else. That is definitely something I look for in exercise! Ha ha! I just wish there was a zumba class with Goth music and moves!

    1. The necklace is from Restyle.
      I have a friend that trains Zumba, she says also that she feels silly, but it's fun.
      Excellent idea you got!

  9. Vad roligt att få se Sabaton :D

    Vilket underbart halsband du har på den "färgade" bilden. <3

    1. Halsbandet är från Restyle. Billigt i plast och nickel men snyggt ändå.
      Det är en prisvärd festival. Vi betalade 495:- för tre dagar. Tror det kostar så nu första månaden efter festivalen sen 666:- och sen ännu dyrare.

  10. Usch, höga klackar är bara jättejobbigt. "Sittskor" :)

    Det är mycket bättre att promenera än att springa, speciellt när man har känsliga knän. Ta inte risken, ta det lugnt. Samma avstånd ger samma motion oavsett om du springer eller går.

    1. Ja tycker det är lite tråkigt att promenera men jag är ju gammal så jag borde vänja mig vid lite långsammare tempo :P

  11. You look great! And you finally had a chance to wear the petticoat! Good idea to pair it with leggings and Converse.

    Walking in that beautiful scenery would be enough to make anyone feel fresh when they arrive at work. The mist is so pretty!

    I'm hoping to drop a few pounds once we move to the country full-time. I'm making myself walk to the post box every day rather than zipping down in the car. Hopefully that, along with many walks in the woods, will get rid of some of this persistent poundage around the waistline! I think I really need to cut back on the beer, too. LOL

  12. I love walks to, but prefer them in the evening towards dusk.

  13. Bilderna på dig är jättefina!

  14. Sounds like you had a great time! I can't believe how lovely your make-up looks :> <3 Was it the 'violate' lipgloss you bought? I have that one and I really like it - I wear it over purple or mauve lipstick though. I find that works really well x
