Eurovision 2019

Hi there!

I've written about Eurovision for a couple of years now, so I guess you could say it's slowly becoming a tradition. And contrary to what some people believe, I love traditions! So without further ado, here are my favourite songs this year:

The Netherlands

Spain

Italy

Will you be watching the Eurovision final next Saturday night? What are your favourite songs this year?

True



If you're from a European country like me, do you recognize any of these situations? I can really relate to some of these haha, especially the one about Eurovision, or buying certain items across the border because they are cheaper there. But I've also definitely driven through Germany to avoid traffic in France and Belgium, which is probably pretty weird to people from other parts of the world.

Sun-day

Hello you! I hope you're doing well on this lovely Sunday.

This afternoon I went to the tanning salon because it's been a while. I like to go at least once every one or two weeks during the winter/early spring to relax, but the last time I went was almost a month ago. And since I've been very lazy with the self tanner (oops), off to the salon I went!

I would be lying if I said I only went to tan. To be honest my acne has been flaring up again lately, and I've been very self-conscious about it. I really don't like looking in the mirror and not feel happy about my skin. The tanning bed always seems to help clear up my face a bit for some reason, and it made me wonder if any of you ever tried sunlight/UV against acne?

I said yes!

Hi there!

Remember when I told you about my new boyfriend? An entire year has passed since we started dating, and on our one year anniversary we went to the Efteling theme park to celebrate. Little did I know, that he had an amazing, life changing surprise for me. At Rapunzel's tower in the fairytale forest, he got down on one knee and proposed! Of course I said yes: I know that he's the perfect man for me. He makes me so incredibly happy and always makes me feel so special and loved, so yes, definitely yes!

Being engaged feels so wonderful, and I really can't wait to start planning our wedding, but to be honest I'm way more excited for our marriage: our life together after the wedding.

Yankee Candle "Snowflake Cookie" candle review

Hey everyone!

How are you? I hope you're all doing great, and that you're all enjoying the cold weather!

Fall is finally here, and I must say I love wearing warm sweaters and comfy flannels again. I have today off, so I decided to treat myself to a new scented candle. I went into the city and picked up a large jar of "Snowflake Cookie" by Yankee Candle, and I must say it smells amazing. I know it's supposed to be a Christmas candle, but it has a long enough burning time for me to enjoy it till winter at least! And of course I couldn't resist the pretty pink packaging, haha.

I would describe the scent as freshly baked cookies, and it makes my home smell like a yummy bakery! I personally think that the Yankee Candle large jars are definitely on the pricier side, but they last for such a long time, that they are absolutely worth it to me. I would rate this candle 10/10!

Are you excited for fall/winter as well? What is your favourite scented candle?

Weekend date

Hey there!

To be honest I've been keeping a secret from you all, but I'm super excited to share it with you - I've secretly been dating my new boyfriend for the past 3 months! I know I haven't mentioned him on my blog yet, but I really couldn't keep it a secret any longer :)

The weather has been really nice lately, so we decided to spend some time outside in the sun together! We went on a guided canal tour to explore the beautiful city of Delft, and we took the tram to the beach of Scheveningen the next day. I've never been on a tram before, so I really liked it, and it's been quite the adventure! :)

What are your favourite things to do on the weekend?

My favourite 2018 Eurovision songs

Hey everyone!

As some of you may already know, I'm a huge Eurovision fan! I wrote about my top 5 songs last year, so I figured I'd do something like that again for 2018.

To be honest I only really enjoy two songs this year, so here they are! I swear I didn't choose these because Norway and the Netherlands are my favourite countries in the whole world or anything, haha.

The Netherlands - Waylon - Outlaw In 'Em


Norway - Alexander Rybak - That's How You Write A Song



Are you excited for the grand final tonight? :) What are your favourite Eurovision songs this year?
