Comic Con 2017








Sadly, this year’s Comic-Con, though a huge improvement since the last ones that I’ve attended, I couldn’t appreciate it since my head and soul was somewhere far away, completely distracted, unable to enjoy the moment.
I was too distracted to pay attention to everything that was going on around me which was heart-shattering. I’ve been feeling somewhat under the weather lately, and I couldn’t let it go, making me almost mad that it was taking over – making me unable to have fun during what tends to be a joy for me.

Though as mentioned, not being a gamer, I simply love being in the atmosphere of those who do. The vibe is as close to blissful as one can get, seeing souls wandering around in costumes, expressing themselves beautifully, talented artist showcasing their work, cool items, to Q&A with stars such as Pamela Anderson. Cobie Smulders, and Ian Glen.

I will continue to attend, and hopefully, I’ll be in a better mood during the next one.
Props to everyone involved, until next year, much love.

P.S. On my Instagram @beautymartinez, you’ll find short snippets of Pamela Andersson, and I only posted videos of Cobie on my story.

Annabelle: Creation (Press screening review)

Director; David F. Sandberg
Horror/Thriller
1h 49 minutes
Swedish premiere; August 9th

David F. Sandberg, the Swedish director behind the movie Lights Out, delivers another heart throbbing, nail biting, and pulse rising mystery that will capture your attention due to its beautiful vision, well-made script, and phenomenal acting from the entire ensemble.

Annabelle: Creation AKA Annabelle 2 is a prequel of a prequel, Anabelle was the prequel to The Conjuring, and this is the prequel to that, hence the name ”Creation”.
Besides giving fans a fantastic story, it has set the bar high for future prequels and horror films due to its great work.

Here, we get to join in the making of Annabelle and what lures behind the porcelain vintage doll that will give you the creeps crawling up your spine whenever the camera lens focuses on her.

Husband and Wife, the Mullins, lose their precious daughter after a horrific accident that takes her away from them way too soon. Through their sorrow, they turn to higher forces in hope to somehow get in contact with their little Bee, only to find out that whoever has entered their home, ain’t their daughter they so were longing to have back in the lives.
Years later, they welcome a nun and few girls from an orphanage to live with them, and soon, whatever entity that was there once before, makes itself present all over again…

I found it to be a great asset to previous films, the plot was well done and intriguing, keeping you interested throughout the movie. Plus, the best part of it all? It has a scene that connects with the previous Annabelle, giving you a massive ”aha moment” when seeing it.

For anyone expecting massive horror will be disappointed, it’s more of a thriller with a splash of mystery and a dash of suspense. If you’ve seen the previous ones, I strongly recommend this one. 7/10


Thank you, Norstedts


I cannot find the correct words to express my gratitude toward Norstedts, a publisher located in the beautiful Stockholm for this amazing opportunity.
Thank you doesn’t feel enough, but I am thankful for the Swedish translated copy of Grey. I cannot wait to dive right into it once again and to let my inner goddess bask in the thrilling world of Mr.Grey one more time because the first was simply not enough.

As you all can tell, I already owned the original version which is in English but I simply love comparing the storytelling, translation, vocabulary, and flow from one language to another. The review will be up once I’m done.

Note: the handcuffs, body lotion, and tea, is in no way associated with Norstedts, it was simply accessory for the picture.

Vegan expo in Stockholm






Went to the Vegan Expo in Stockholm and had a blast, surrounded by beautiful like-minded people, volunteers, and helpful workers who delivered information, and delicious vegan treats for everyone to taste and enjoy.

I brought a little bit of everything with me back home, from food, snacks, cookies, to books, and tons of flyers for me to read and update my knowledge regarding the animals, environment, and vegan lifestyle.

I was there for around two hours, and it felt like time literally flew by as I was floating around on a fluffy green cloud, completely blissfully at all the amazing food that was vegan, cruelty-free, and organic. Some stands even had makeup, skincare, and clothes.
Big thank you to everyone involved, I’m looking forward to next years event. Xo, Beauty

Delivores (bought at Goodstores) Swedish Skagen mixture is life-changing. I decided to try it with oven baked potatoes, a typical Swedish dish, but you can add it on toast, or whatever your heart pleases.

Stick some holes in the potatoes/s to avoid chances of it exploding, wrap it up in foil, and shove it in the oven for around 1h, in 225 degrees. Once it’s done, fill it with the mixture, and decorate it with lemon slices and dill! ;)
