Charissa ♥

Hi there! I’m a girl, 17, completely in love with redheads such as Marcia Cross & Cintia Dicker. Me myself, I’ve got brown hair & brown eyes… and I’m definitely too tall. I still go to college, in fact I’m about to go to university. I’ve got a serious language addiction, I speak English, French, Dutch, Spanish, German, Italian & Portuguese. English isn’t my main language though, so you’ll probably notice some errors. Sorry for that! I ♥ redheads and electro music, my fav movies are comedy noir, film noir and dramas or any Lynch film. I’ve got this thing with retro and orange lipstick. I probably was Austin Powers’ girlfriend in my previous life - don’t believe in reincarnation though - I love theatre and being a drama queen, and every now and then, I just have to act extremely cruel *gna gna*. I ♥ my close friends and love to hurt people I don’t . I’ve got a desperate need to be perfect, which I’m not at all, so that causes a lot of frustration. People don’t always like me, because I don’t tend to show my inner feelings. Like I’ve said before I love acting and putting on my game face, life’s just so much easier that way. I’m also full of sarcasm and I seem to be a pessimist. I love laughing though, and running in the park in summer. And I ♥ browsing through flowers, hate my flower allergies, but, as usual, I don’t really care.
shopping, orange lipstick, desperate housewives, paint shop pro, dogville, marcia cross, dancing, axelle red, film noir, reading, spring, vive la fête, gini, chinese food, french movies, daan, the hours, felicity huffman, fashion, izima kaoru, dr. g, retro, high heels, nicole kidman, earrings, julianne moore, shoes, cintia dicker, concerts, drama, trinny woodall & Susannah Constantine, languages, sleep, brynette, red flowers
The lovely Naomi! I am dying to see Stay, so I’m getting into a Naomi mood again =D Love the girl! This shoot is from Ellen Von Unwerth who happens to be one of the photographers out there! And it was for Interview, which happens to be one of the best magazines out there! Great combination =D I didn’t use pink this time, lol! All orange! Credits underneath.

Luckily I will be gone Friday =D FRANCE HERE I COME! Je suis très ravie d'avoir le privilège d'entrer dans votre beauté, je vous adore ♥

I Don't Wanna Hear. [April 9th, 2006 | 03.35]
[ mood | cranky ]

I'm having a horrible day! When I got up, I tried on my new trousers and guess what... they were too small! So I tried on another pair and again, they were too small! Seems I gained some weight and now my trousers don't fit anymore =( *sighs*

Soo, I tried on my fav white skirt *that always makes me feel better* but I was wearing my pumps and I didn't know I was standing on the skirt while trying to put it on, soooo I ripped it! From the bottom to the top! *sighs again* The little pearls were flying through my bedroom... Uuuuh! I can't believe it! I've nothing to wear! I'm in my pyjamas right now... *sighs again & again*

Then I found out I still had to make a book report *still have to read the book, as usual* and I've only got 1 day... To make matters worse, I can't find the book! It must be here somewhere... And I still have to pack because I'll be leaving for France this Friday. And I don't even have trousers to wear! Damn it! I have no idea what the weather is going to be like so I guess I'll have to pack winter & summer clothes... And I can only take 1 suitcase with me! I can't even get my shoes into 1 suitcase! *sighs* Aaaw, it's sooo frustrating! This week should be a relaxing holiday week! Not a freaked up stress bunny like week! *sighs again*

Oh and I also broke two nails, but I don't want to sound like a superficial Barbie doll, so I'm not going to make a drama out of it...

And I'm kinda pissed because I wanted to make new icons *Flicka always makes my day* but I screwed everything up and that frustrates me even more! Yesterday I found the time to make 2 blends for some challenge. I'll put them underneath the cut so you guys still have something to look at...

Well, I guess I'm going to continue my book-searching thing... and clean up my room... try to figure out what to pack and go on a quick diet that makes me lose 2.5kilos in 4 days... Wish me luck!

Here Comes The Sun. [April 8th, 2006 | 10.55]
[ mood | amused ]

No, too bad, the sun is gone =( It's kinda weird, Spain & Italy lay next to each other, but still, it's warmer in Spain than in Italy! It was like 25°C all day... here, it's 15°C if you're lucky! *sighs* But summer is coming up anyway =D I can't wait! I seriously need to lay on the beach and hang around the pool 'till midnight. And I want to walk around in my skirts & dresses, lol =P

But anyway, Spain was amazing! It was the second time I was there, but the first time with my family =D I had such a great time! Like I said, the weather was great, the sun was shining all day and the people there are sooo relaxed! They made me feel so comfortable! The only thing I missed was the new Desperate Housewives episode, lol =P But I saw it this morning, so that's okay now =D *Lynette was soooo sweet! Too bad there was no Tom this time...*
But I was talking about Spain, euhms, I don't really know what to say! We didn't do anything special, we didn't build bridges or something, lol =P We just walked around, layed in the sun, went shopping *duh* Oh and I finally bought Bewitched =D Not the series, but the movie, with Nicole of course =D Everyone was saying it was a horrible film, but I kinda liked it! That guy was quite annoying though... But Nicole was extremely cute! ♥ Nicole

So, that's it I guess... I think I'm going to watch DH again, it was such a cute episode! Bree/Lynette/Peter and even Donna =P, Karl/Susan, Carlos/Gaby, so cute =D

Later! ♥

EDIT: Oh and just because I love Amber:   <-- GO THERE!

Hiya! Just wanted to let you know that I'm on a... 


So I won't be able to comment on your LJ's! I'm flying off to Spain this evening and I will be back next Friday, 7th April. I'll probably comment on your entries later on =D

♥ Enjoy whatever you are doing! Good luck with homework, assignments, coursework, school, everything! Oh and for the lucky ones who've got a break now: have a splenderific holiday !!

Cinema. [March 29th, 2006 | 17.12]
[ mood | hungry ]

I am dying to have a break! *have a kit kat* No really, I sooo need to have some time for myself! School is ****** me up! I want to go & sleep and I don't want to get up before 1pm! Gosh there are so many things I want to do! Luckily, it's only 2 days till the Easter Holidays =D Two weeks of freedom! *my life is beautiful* Lol =P I won't be around then, I'll be flying somewhere between Italy - France - Belgium =D Rome, Paris & Gent, what more can a girl wish for? *well... new shoes maybe...*

Oh I've made a new layout again! Nicole ♥ I want her to dye her hair red again... She looks cute as a blonde, but still, with red hair, she's just to die for! And I want a new Nicole film haha! Can't wait for Fur to be released! *strenuous*

And I fucked up a Spanish test today... I was so focused on spelling the words correctly, that I forgot to check my conjugations... As a result, I wrote "lleva" instead of "llevo" like 20x in my writing exercise, that's so stupid! It's like one of the first things you learn when you're studying Spanish... *hits head* I feel dumb now... I'm quite sure I've made some vocabulary errors too... What's a synonym for "bajita"? I wrote down "muy baja" but that's definitely not the answer my teacher was looking for... I also thought - for one stupid second -  "muy" meant "quite" but I know it means "very"... Just not that second =P Stupid second! Uh, I have to stop thinking about that =P

Yay! I'm smelling French fries over here so I think dinner's ready! Goodbye my sweet honey bunnies! ♥

Watching. Waiting. Wanting. [March 25th, 2006 | 20.38]
[ mood | tired ]

Today was someones birthday! She's one hot redhead... Hm, who could that be, lol =P *points at fanart card underneath the cut*
(I'm Afraid Of Who You Are)

I love that green dress! And I love her hair! Gosh, I love everything about her haha! Anyway, the fan-art-thingie turned out darker than it should be... *stupid psp*
Can you believe she's 44? I mean, look at her! She's gorgeous! Why aren't the 44-year-olds around me not that beautiful? Lol =P Well, beauty isn't everything... *but it's still nice to look at*

I did a lot of homework today *good girl* I had to write a piece on my fav movie. So I tried Dogville, but it was too difficult to express the "magic" on paper, so I decided to do Mulholland Dr. but that film is just too complicated to explain so I ended up discussing Lola Rennt (Run Lola Run), it took me like 3 hours to write the whole damn thing, but I'm satisfied right now =D Oh and I spent 2 full hours on Math exercises! - I finished 3 exercises, while all the others probably finished 33 but that doesn't matter, the fact that I could finish 3 exercises in 2 hours is just WOW -

That's all I had to say! Goodnight everyone!

Killer On The Road. [March 22nd, 2006 | 19.38]
[ mood | bored ]

I went shopping! Again... But it was quite exciting this time because I was going to buy new stuff for my new room =D And usually I'm not really into bright colours, but for one or the other reason, I only bought orange, pink & lime thingies haha! I bought myself a fluffy orange plaid, a beautiful lime duvet and pink fluffy pillows haha! Oh and some little vases *it actually looks cooler than it sounds haha* Now I only have to look for some posters to stick to my walls - I'm thinking about b/w filmposters...

That reminds me! I was a little bit bored today and found this cute Flicka/Marcia picture on my computer and decided to create a little fan art thingie =P It's underneath the cut... *teases*

I've snagged this from the lovely tangled_rainbow

1. Put your playlist on shuffle.
2. Post lyrics from the first 20 songs under an LJ cut.
3. See who can guess the song title and artist.
4. When someone guesses the title and artist correctly, strikeout the song.

Material Girl. [March 13th, 2006 | 19.38]
[ mood | tired ]

*happy moment* This is like the first time I'm satisfied with a LJ-layout! I know it's not Marcia or Flicka, but Scarlett is cool too, isn't she? I saw Lost In Translation the other day, and I kind of became fan again! She reminds me of Naomi Watts in some way... Probably because they're both quite blonde and pale and talented actresses!

Anyway, tomorrow we will be filming an English programme at school... It's for our English *duh* class, and I will have to present the whole thing! I think it's going to be fun! It's for our oral exam, so I hope it'll all work out, I can really use good marks!
I've talked to my mentor today and she is so excited about me going to University in Belgium! And I'm quite excited too because I'll have to live on my own then! Far away from my family and friends, it's going to be freaky the first days! Luckily I still have some old friends around Gent, so it's not like I'm completely on my own.

Short post for now, because I'm am SO tired! I'm having some tests next week because I think I'm missing some vitamines... I've got a weird skin tone *brownish purple* and I've been feeling so tired lately, I really think I should eat more fruits or something *yak, I don't like fruit* anyway, that means good night for now!

You've all got my love!  ♥

You Keep On Pushing My Love. [March 12th, 2006 | 13.11]
[ mood | crappy ]

LJ doesn't love me anymore! I’m having some problems with the LJ-cuts… I really hope it’s alright now…

Anyway, I went shopping yesterday! It was sooo much fun! I love my girlfriends ♥ We've had a catfight earlier this week - at school, and everyone was watching us *so embarrassing* but now we've made it all up, we're good friends again, lol =P So we went shopping *I'm repeating things...* and I bought this amazing new outfit! A pretty skirt, jeans, with turquoise flowers on it, really pretty! And I also bought this stunning Goldfrapp T-shirt *Goldfrapp is an amazing British group* it's vintage, but I don't care! I love it! And then I saw this lovely pair of shoes, ballerina’s, they were gold with sparkles on it! So cool =P

Too bad I can't wear the skirt though... First of all, because it's toooo cold *it's kind of freezing* and second... I bruised my knees yesterday! I just fell down! It must have been quite funny to watch, but it really hurt! My knees are all thick and purple with blue spots. It looks like a mouldy pizza or something... So no skirts for me this week!

I was in a desperate mood to make some icons. I screwed them up, but I'm putting them online anyway! It's Madonna & Scarlett Johanssen. I wonder why I chose those two, lol =P But I kind of like Scarlett and I'm listening to old Madonna cd's non-stop so that's probably the reason why. I can't stop singing Holiday! My parents are hating me for this, but I can't help it! It's such a funny song! And I NEED a holiday... *counting down the days - still 26 to go*

Siamo Nella Stessa Lacrima. [March 8th, 2006 | 13.22]
[ mood | crappy ]

What is it with teachers not wanting us to have a social life? They're just handing out homework like it's their second nature... It's not funny anymore! I'm seriously considering to quit my plans to go to university... I've got brains, there must be something else I can do with them! Bleegh!

Right now, we have this project where we have to make our own news. It's in three languages: English, French & German, but we can't chose which language we'll be using... Our teachers form the groups. If my English teacher doesn't put me in the English group I would be soooo disappointed! I don't feel like creating anything in French or German =( *nagging again* 

Uh I don't feel very well! I need chocolate haha! I think I'm going to watch a stupid feel good film... Maybe Mean Girls or Legally Blonde or something =P Oh Miss Congeniality =D Whatever, just me, the television, the couch aaaand some chocolate =D Yeah!

[ mood | excited ]

I'm soooo excited! Tonight is the big night! Beeeeeecause Flicka is about to win her very first oscar =P I'll eat my copy of The Da vinci Code if she doesn't win! *I don't always tend to do what I promise - just to let you know* But really, she needs to win, she so deserves it! I loved Transamerica, I mean she was amazing! *jumps & hops around ♥ GOO FLICKA ♥ GOOOO FLICKA ♥ GOOOO FLICKA*

Oh and as you see... there's a new layout! I was tired of the previous one already, so =P I seem to have this problem with LJ, I think it's quite difficult to make a nice header...Maybe I should take my time to do it, because I always want to finish it in 10 minutes and that's probably not enough... Anyway, I hope you guys like it!

School starts again tomorrow... Yak, I think I hate school =P Right now, I hate it. Bleeegh. Oh and as I thought I was recovering from that stupid flu, I suddenly caught this irritating cough... *does it ever end?!* But I'm still lucky, my little sister is in the hospital now... pneumonia. It's sooo pitiful to see her lying in the big hospital bed! Poor girl *sends kisses*

Anyway, let's cross fingers for tonight! *you only have to remember one word FLICKA* and I just say goodbye my sweeties!

A Matter Of Complication. [March 1st, 2006 | 13.55]
[ mood | sick ]

Hi !

Gosh I'm heaving a horrible headache! I've never had one like this before! Not even when I'm drunk! And I don't know where it comes from... Maybe I'm to stressed or something =X I have 3 huge projects to finish... One on Verona (that's a beautiful Italian town), one on fashion (I do like this one =P) and another one on Verona, but that one is in German! And even though I really like languages, German must be my least favorite... I wish I could do it in English or French... Gosh, that reminds me. I still have to read a French book! Damn it! It's a boring book about this arrogant Japanese/French girl who thinks she owns the world or something =X Uuuuh *headache is growing*

Anyway, because I was quite bored I took a personality test... And you know, the results are kind of hitting me! I think it really reflects who I am, I just don't want to acknowledge that yet haha! I seem to be quite avoidant & individual... *didn't know that one yet, but I think it is true* I already knew I was artistic & histrionic... I can't help it, lol =P The only thing I don't like about the test, is that it says I'm part of the female cliche... Which I'm not! I'm not this fake Barbie doll who cries whenever she's not getting enough attention from all the plastic men around her! BUT I do tend to look in the mirror all day haha! Anyway, for the ones who want to check my results...

How Deep Is Your Fjord. [February 26th, 2006 | 13.08]
[ mood | dorky ]

As promised: all my Felicity & Marcia icons! There are around 100 icons, I know, too much of them... But I couldn't help myself! I know there are a little bit more Marcia icons than Felicity ones *sorry for that* But I just felt like all Flicka's shoots had been used yet... So I just grabbed some random photocall pictures! I'll make some photoshoot ones when I find a beautiful new photoshoot *gives subtle hints to photographers*

Oh and talking about Marcia, I saw an Ally McBeal episode yesterday, and she was so on it! I had no idea she had had a guestrole on AM! It was kind of funny to watch her act in an not-so-preppy outfit haha! I love the girl ♥

I'm Bad I'm Bad I Know It. [February 25th, 2006 | 21.13]
[ mood | sleepy ]

Don't say it! I know, I know... 1 day and we already have to say goodbye to the lovely Desperate Housewives layout... But for one or the other reason, I didn't like it anymore. And when I discovered this magnificent picture of the stunning Felicity & Marcia, I just HAD to CHANGE the layout...

I promised you guys I would make some Flicka/Marcia icons, which I did... I just need to find the time to put them online... You'll probably be able to see them tomorrow... *now don't cry, you'll only have to sleep 1 night*

Oh and I just have to tell you something... I went shopping today and I bought some make-up things! I probably won't use it, but well, I just wanted to have it haha! It's this reddish orange nail polish, greenish blue eye-shadow & a brown kohl-pencil. I wonder what it would like look if I put it all on, I would probably be ready for circus or something... I can't wait to polish my nails, though! Gosh, sometimes, I'm such a girly girl!

I guess I just have to go to bed now, before I turn into this Barbie Doll! *I always knew I was different... Most people seem to turn into a werewolf at night, while I'm turning into a giggly blond...*

Well, goodnight then! See you tomorrow! With my Flickacross icons!

Time For a Change. [February 24th, 2006 | 17.33]
[ mood | bouncy ]

Look, look, look! *hyper* There's a new layout! Don't you just love this picture? I can't stop adoring it =P *Oh Gosh, I knew I would fall in love with a picture one day... when are we getting married anyway?* It took me almost a whole afternoon to create this new layout, very weird, I tried 1001 pictures & colors, but only this one suited my LJ... Weird.

I've still got problems with my recent Felicity Huffman obsession... I'm trying to calm it down, though. There's this "diet" thing... I'm only allowed to watch 2 Desperate Housewives episodes a week, I can only visit Felicity sites or galleries once a day, and the only movie I'm allowed to watch is Bambi ll, definitely NOT Transamerica. I'll keep on breathing whenever she's on television and I promised myself not to read too many Brynette fanfics.

Oh and, believe it or not, next week, there won't be any college! At least, not for me! A whole week of relaxing, reading, dancing, jumping in the air, whatever, but no books, no tasks, no teachers. *this must be heaven* Hm, I'll have plenty of time to make some new icons... There will be some Felicity ones, I'm afraid... And Marcia, and Cinta, and probably Nicole & Julianne... I do have a weird redhead fixation =X

Anyway, I give you guys all my love! Later! xx

It's weekend again! Which means... new icons! I'm busy with a whole bunch of Felicity Huffman/Marcia Cross icons, but I'll post them when I've finished them all!
I love Felicity these days! I just saw Transamerica and I'm completely in a trance =P *exaggerates* But I still adore her the most as Lynette =D I guess I'm going to watch some DH episodes again... *grabs dvd-box*

I didn't do that much this weekend... I did some homework, ate, drunk, danced, went to the movies, messed up some tests, broke some hearts *OK I didn't do that, I just felt like saying that =P* and watched tv of course =P Oh and the best thing... I ate 2 bags of popcorn in half an hour =P Everything is sticky right now =P It's just not a good idea to eat popcorn behind your computer haha!

Whatever, just watch the icons, will you... It's Cintia Dicker again, I can't stop adoring her! Well, her hair =P Enjoy!

Lazy! Lazy! Lazy! Hm, I've just described myself in three words... Horrible me... I have so much homework te do, but I prefer sitting on the bed with a nice book and a cup of tea. Isn't that awful?

Anyway, I've just seen another Desperate Housewives episode and gosh, isn't Bree the cutest creature that exists? And how come her hair is so beautifully red? Uh, that reminds me of all the other gorgeous redheads with gorgeous hair - me: completely jaleous - I need red hair! Can't possibly ever survive without red hair... But it would look freaky on me, no doubt about that!

Oh and there's a new gorgeous redhead =P Famke Janssen! I came across some pretty pictures of X-men3 and couldn't resist the I-need-to-make-an-icon-out-of-this-feeling. So, underneath the next cut, there are some Dark Phoenix icons waiting for you! Don't be shocked, it's quite weird to see Fams with red hair, but it suits her perfectly =P
