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?

Hi there!

Yesterday was a very exciting day for me, as I had some photos taken! The weather was great, and I love how comfortable the photographer made me feel :) I've worked with her before a couple of years ago, so I knew I didn't have to be nervous or anything. I'm usually pretty self conscious about my extremely pale skin, but I'm actually really happy with the pictures she took of me.

My top and my skirt are both from Morgan de Toi, and my sandals are from River Island.

Have you ever had a professional photographer take photos of you?

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
