Coolest shopping bag ever

Hey everyone!

My mom came to visit me today, and of course we went shopping. I didn't really need any new clothes, so I decided to go for books instead. To be honest I only planned on buying The Two Towers and The Return of the King, because I already have The Fellowship of the Ring, and the other two seem to have gotten lost when I moved to Zwolle last September...

Unfortunately they were both sold out. I asked the cashier if he could perhaps order them for me, but then he pointed out to me that they also sell a very pretty copy that has the entire trilogy in one: so of course I couldn't resist, and bought it!

Isn't this the coolest shopping bag you've ever seen? :)

What book are you reading right now?

Why I've Been Away

Hey you!

It's been so long since we've talked, and I hope you're doing well! A lot has changed in my life: I left my beloved small town behind and moved to a new city, and I recently broke up with my boyfriend of 5 and half years. I guess I needed some time to process it all, which is why I've been away for so long. I hope you understand, and forgive me for being away :)

In terms of work it's been a particularly quiet week. I managed to get a couple of days off for my birthday, and I'm spending them all with running, going on walks, and going to the movies. I've already seen Thor: Ragnarok, The Mountain Between Us, and Geostorm this week, and it's only Wednesday haha. Tomorrow I'll probably take the train to visit my parents, so I can be with them when I turn 24 next Friday.

I figured some of you might be interested in seeing my new city, so I took a couple of pictures!

Sad day + skincare addict!

The anniversary of my older brother's death is today, and even though it's been 9 years already, August 14 is still a pretty hard day for me every year. He was 17 when he died in 2008, so he would be 26 if he'd be alive today. I still think about him often, and I can't help but wonder if he'd be married by now, or if he'd have children. It feels a bit weird that my last memories of him are from when he was 17 (a lot younger than I am now), as he will forever be my big brother.

So because today is a sad day for me, I got the day off work to relax, which I'm very grateful for :) I figured I'd share some of my newly purchased beauty products!

As some of you may know, I'm a huge Chanel skincare fan. I bought the Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Serum not too long ago, and I can't rave enough about how much I love it! At €115 for 50 ml, it's definitely a bit on the pricier side. But because you only need such a tiny little amount each time you use it, it lasts a really long time, and that makes it worth it to me.

Unfortunately I've run out of my Hydra Beauty Gel Crème a while back (also from Chanel), which is my favourite day cream ever. So when I was shopping for some beauty products a couple of days ago, I decided to pick it up again :) To be honest I only needed a new jar of Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade, and the cream I mentioned, but as you probably already expected of me, I left the store with a few more items, haha.

1. Hydra Beauty "Micro Gel Yeux" eyecream
2. Hydra Beauty Gel Crème
3. Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in "Taupe"
4. Hydra Beauty hydrating mask

Have you ever used Chanel skincare? What are your favourite skincare products?

Decisions, decisions

There are many decisions one needs to make in life, but not many are as important or as difficult as having to decide what colour one should paint their nails.

So, dear reader, should I go for "Just Beclaus" or "Lady In Black"?


Decisions, decisions...

A little mascara never hurts

Hi there!

I'm so sorry for the delay in publishing this blog post! I came home from Austria not too long ago, and I've been super busy at work ever since. But as I'm currently home with the flu, I figured today would be a good day to show you some of the beauty products I bought when I was there! I loved how budget friendly all of these were, so I really recommend checking out a few drugstores if you ever travel to Germany or Austria.

1. HASK Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner
2. DM Ebelin (their own brand?) eyelash curler
3. "Fresh & Fruity" shower foam
4. Invisibobble hair tie
5. Waterlily deodorant
6. Batiste "fruity & cheeky cherry" dry shampoo
7. Max Factor "False Lash Effect" mascara
8. L'Oreal Hydra Active moisturizer

Packing for Austria

Hey everyone!

Today is a pretty busy day for me, because I'm packing for my trip to Austria! I won't get a lot of sleep tonight because I'm leaving super early tomorrow morning, but I'm very excited to go. I sincerely think Austria is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and I haven't been there for at least 10 years, so I've been looking forward to this trip for months. I actually meant to go today, but my grandma has been a little sick and I was worried, so I rescheduled. But she's fine now, so I'm going tomorrow, yay!

For some reason I always forget to charge my iPad or my 3DS when I go away, but I am charging both of them at the moment, so I should be able to play Kingdom Hearts or watch Netflix. My biggest problem though, when it comes to travelling, is that I tend to overpack. Like most women, I tend to bring way too much stuff that I don't need, and I just don't want to do that anymore! It would save me so much time, energy, and stress to pack only the essentials, so last night I made a list, and I tried to stick to it :-) To be honest I did pack an extra pair of shoes, because you never know, but I am still very happy and proud to announce that I managed to fit all of my stuff for 10 days in my little carry on suitcase!

Do you have any travel essentials?

Oh my darling, Clementine

I started my new job this week, and I love it so far! My colleagues are all really nice, and I'm having a ton of fun selling bras and swimsuits :) I have today off, so I'm gaming as usual, haha.

Clementine is one of my favourite video game characters ever! She's adorable, but still really strong, and she managed to survive for a very long time in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. I don't think a lot of little girls would be able to survive as long as she did, so I think that makes her pretty cool.

Who are your favourite video game characters?
