I’ve been dreading this – sitting in front of the keyboard and try to type something together. To be honest, I haven’t felt inspired even though I’ve been thinking about writing, every – single – day. I’m craving some new inspiration & motivations on how I can make this blog even better. Any ideas? Please leave a comment below.
Tonight we had our first date night after almost two years (!). A date alone that is, with a babysitter at home, aka my mum, watching our son. We drove 10 minutes to our local cinema and watched Black Panther. I’m usually not enthusiastic about marvel movies, but with this one I just got a good feeling. I’ve also heard that it was received very well by other social media influencers.
So if you’re into action, si-fi and a little drama, you should definitely go see this one. Here’s my outfit of the night.
You can never go wrong with a simple tee and I’ve been loving ones with slogans or writings on them. I really need to find some new ones since the 3 I have I wear on repeat. Pair it with a modest long skirt or wide pants and you’re good to go.
I hope this was inspirational. Maybe you even found something you would like to buy. I’m definitely starting to love Asos, and I don’t know why I haven’t thought about buying from them before. I just always thought they were too expensive or only had high end brands. But you can find anything on this site, from Monki or New Look to Asos White and River Island. I can’t wait to stop by again and actually get those things from my wish list to my shopping basket.
I love to minimize everything but even though I do it for the 100th time, I always think I still have to much stuff.
Today I took a dive into my make-up collection. I love to buy and test out new products, but let’s be honest, more often than not these products are not keepers. They end up stuck in my cabinet for who knows how long and way over their expiration date.
Here are the products that didn’t make the cut.
GOSH eyeshadow pallet I bought way back but just ended up using 6 of the 9 shades, if even. I also managed to drop it once on the bathroom floor. Now it’s time to officially let go.
Rimmel lipstick. I’ve actually used this in it’s early days but the last couple of
months, years, it hasn’t seen the light of day.
L’oréal True Match foundation bought way back when I didn’t really understand my skin tone. Totally the wrong shade for me and in the end just using up space.
Inglot Creme Foundation, a product I loved when I bought it but soon realized was way too water based and slipped off my face.
Bare Minerals foundation powder and veil. Two products I did use a good while and was happy using them. But over time my skin changed and I knew I needed liquid foundation for my dry skin.
Maybelline Master Prime, and anti redness primer which I had high hopes for but other than having a good applicator, it didn’t really do anything. A total waste of money.
L’oréal Mega Volum mascara, in hopes of finding the next best mascara after years of using the same one. And I really thought this was it. Unfortunately I found that it clumped my lashes together and didn’t give me a lot of volum, something it promised.
GOSH sparkling eye liner pen, only used a handful of times whenever I managed to do a winged eyeliner. But I’ve never seen that sparkle it promises. It also has a very liquid formula.
Now I’m search for products I will stick to and make-up I know I’ll use frequently. At least I have more space now.
This past Monday we celebrated our son’s first birthday. Can you believe a year has gone by so fast? I cannot. I can’t believe my baby boy is one. It seems as if it was yesterday that we rushed to the hospital – a car ride that seemed would never end. And a few hours later he entered this wonder, crazy world. Two days later we were home, all alone, just us three. It was the weirdest feeling in the world suddenly having a tiny human being to take care of. Just you and your partner. But I think we managed quite well, if I may say so myself. Just look at us now, a year later. Still learning but we are an amazing little family and I can’t wait to expand. But for now one is more than enough.
I decorated as little as I could but someone’s first birthday should be celebrated, even though he won’t remember any of it. I guess the celebration was more for me, and maybe also my mum.
I was baking and cleaning since the morning and even though we were only 8 people, I managed to bake up some scones, carrot muffins and a banana bread. All well received, even though the scones looked like bread to be honest. But the banana bread was definitely a success.
I had a slideshow going on in the background on the TV. Pictures all from the day he was born until now. And I also picked out 13 pictures that I hung between two doors with a big one sign over them. He also got a puzzle for 1-4 year olds & a book about ‘Finding Dory’ from my mum, a new toy from my best friend and a sled from my brother and dad.
Hopefully this year things will slow down a bit. Until next year!
My baby boy
My pride and joy
How could I ever imagine a life without you
If I could I would protect you from any harm that could affect you
Your smile lights up my day
Even bad days you get me through
My light, my sunshine
What would I do without you
I could never imagine a life without you now
And I pray that I can get a life long with you by my side
‘Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.’
