4 Things Not To Say Or Do To Someone Who Suffers From Migraines

Personally I suffer from chronic migraine, meaning I have them more often than people with regular migraines. To make a quick story short it went to shit last year and I'm currently trying to make it somewhat steady again thanks to medicine and better painkillers, I'm getting there :)

But we're not here for me to bring up my whole damn migraine story so let's get to the point, shall we?

"It's just a headache."
There is nothing "just" about a migraine. If it were "just a headache" they would call it a really bad headache but they don't. For a very good reason.

Sticking up a scent in their face that
you know triggers their migraine.
It's disrespectful and so very fucking rude! If you know a certain perfume, candle or any kind of scent triggers someones migraine...Keep it away or stay away.

Why don't you try ___?!
Personally I've suffered from migraines since my early teens. I am a migraine veteran in other words. This means I've tried...everything. And I keep trying everything I come across. If I'm not doing the common ways to help with a migraine it's because I know they wont work on me.

Move around/Do something and you'll feel better.
No. Noooo. Distraction can help ease most pain related things, this is true. But with a migraine it 9 out of 10 times actually makes it worse. If someone is in the final stage of the painful part of their migraine then leave them the fuck alone. If they're laying in a dark room with a closed door no matter the hour of the day it's because it's all they can do, for real.

Do you suffer from migraines?
What are some things that makes you frustrated that people say or do?

3 Things You Can Do The Night Before To Have Better Mornings

Pick your outfit the night before.
This so much. Well if you're a clothes freak like me and love 100% of your wardrobe then this is a life saver! I always pick my outfit the day/night before and it saves me so much time because then I just have to grab what I picked and I'm all good. If you, like me, live in a country that has weather that can change super fast then also have a plan b hehe. Or just some clothing item you can add/switch if the weather would change overnight. Sweden is a bitch when it comes to weather, it doesn't know the meaning of the word steady.

Another quick side note on this topic is your favs. We all have them, kitties. Those outfits that always fits and feels damn amazing. So what if you wore it last week and the week before that? If it's clean then put it on! Important thing is that you feel comfy and fucking fabulous!

Prepare everything that you can.
Bring your own homemade lunch to school/work? Have a backpack in need of filling? Know what you're gonna have for breakfast? Then prepare all you can the night before! Pre-pack your lunch so you just have to put it in your bag. Pre-pack your bag with all the things you can. If possible prepare your breakfast so you can just easily put it together in the morning. You can never be too prepared and unless it's food that will get spoilt or if you need a certain item before leaving, why not pre-pack etc?

Go to bed a decent time.
I'm a night owl and I struggle with this so much. My brain kickstarts after like 9PM and keeps being at it's peek until like 2-3AM. This happens even on my workdays and I get up between 5-6AM! But I have forced myself to at least turn everything off and head to bed at a decent time, even if I just stay in bed listening to music etc until I fall asleep. It leaves me feeling much more rested the next morning since it's like meditation before sleep. If it helps then put an alarm on your phone to remind you it's time for bed.

What do you do to make your mornings better and less stressful?

3 Questions I Get A Lot + Answers

Being online, like having a blog or social media comes with getting questions. So I thought I'd pick out 3 of them I'm used to getting several times every week (some of them daily) and answer them here in my blog. If you're curious about something else, just ask! :)

Where do you find your leggings?
As most of you probably know by now my nerdy leggings are not from Black Milk. They are copies indeed! And I find these lovely babies over on Ebay :) They don't have BM copies of all their leggings etc but they do have a pretty big selection of them, and they are a whole lot cheaper too. I'm planning on posting a "Buy My Leggings" post very soon so if you're wondering of a certain kind, let me know below.

Where do you do your nails/What fake nails do you use?
I don't. I do my nails myself, at home usually in my couch in front of Netflix or YouTube. And when I have a little more nail artsy design I mostly use nail decals. Personally I use water decals because I think they last a whole lot better than nail stickers. Just head on over to Ebay and browse after it. If you are after something specific then just add it to the search words.

About the fake nails that I use, once again I don't haha! My nails, even when they are super duper long, are 100% my own nails. They grow strong and pretty fast. What's kind of funny is that the few times I do use fake nails (I do if I fall for a design etc) I actually have to cut my own down big time. I usually cut them down and start over when they get in the way, meaning I can't type properly etc haha.

Are you really the age you say you are?
Yes. For you who don't know my exact age it's 28, I'm turning 29 in November this year, so I am closing in fast on the 30 year mark hehe. But yes I am indeed 28 years old meaning I was indeed born year 1987. I am well aware that I don't look my age since I get reminded daily irl but I'm totally fine with that :) Age is just a number and you will never be "old" unless you make it so yourself.

Life During April 2016

Hello, my darling kitties! Yet another month has started (is this year just moving Quicksilver speed or what?) and a new Life During post is due. I've been quite the busy little fangirl during April, both on the Watching part but also Gaming. Here is what I was up to during April!

So I've checked out a few new shows hehe. Z Nation season 1 appeared on Netflix so I finally checked it out. It's zombies. Need I say more? It got nothing on The Walking Dead but I really love it (I'm obsessed...hush now). It has kind of that half-bad feel like many zombie movies...In a very good way. And as usual I have a crush on the weird one, meaning Murphy...Who is half-zombie dude...that' is why I'm single.

The second show I checked out is Alphas. I'm not really into it yet but I've only watched a few episodes. But it's something about it that keeps pulling me back in now and then so we'll see. Maybe it's my X-men fangirl inside screaming in need of attention.

I also started watching Band of Brothers. One of my closest friends is really into the War category and I myself enjoy war themed movies but I've never checked out any of the shows. So I borrowed the box and it is one of the best shows I have ever watched, for sure. It's very intense even when the speed is low because it's happened for real. I really love how they've made it and the cast is amazing. It's only 10 episodes so I'm finished already :)

Some of you are probably a little bit "But Kitten...What about Captain America: Civil War?!" and yes it's finally here! But because of the movie theaters schedule I had to be a good girl and wait haha. I got my date night set for it on Wednesday! :) So it will be in my May post since I haven't actual seen it yet.

I bought and downloaded The Following DLC for Dying Light, finally! I've been gaming the shit out of that one! I drive around in my little buggy crushing zombies like there is no tomorrow! Well I was until I finished it within a week. But it's a big game even for a DLC so you can always go back and run around even if you've finished the story.

Looking away story line wise I think it's better than the original game, which is not common for me. I usually love the main game most but really enjoy the DLC. Like the 3 you got for The Evil Within, really love all three but I prefer the main one. But yeah, I think I prefer this one.

After I finished that one I moved on to Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. I've had this in my PS4 shelf for quite some time but haven't gotten around to game it. I usually stock up on games and then grab them on the go. I fucking loved The New Order and I fucking love this one, SO GOOD. But then again it's by Betheseda so it's no shock. I finished that one as well already, took me...I started one night and finished the next.

Photos @Instagram
I decided to smack these two post into one this month. I've mostly been focused on work and I've held on to my money as well. So to fill it out a little I'm putting some lovely photos from Instagram.

What were you up to during April?
