2016 summary

At the end of every year I sit down and write down the big things that have happened the last year. It’s a great way to reflect and look back at the year I’ve had. Even though I haven’t shared a lot lately, there is a lot that has happened and I thought I’d write an overview of how my 2016 has been.

New Years Eve – A very laid-back evening with my love. We made dinner together at our first home. The power went out half way through the night but that only made it more cosy. The clock turned midnight and we watched the fireworks from our balcony.
London – From the 1st to 5th of February we travelled to England. I’ve always dreamed of going and it was a great first trip together as a couple.
May 1st – After 6 months at our new home we had to move out. We had three months to pack up our things and move.
May 18th – The day we found out that Baby #1 is on the way. A nerve-racking and exciting day with a whole lot of feelings.
1st of July – Moving day. We moved to a town 20 minutes away from our first apartment. And personally, I couldn’t be more happy. New beginnings are always nice and with an extra bedroom there would be plenty of space for our little family.
24th of August – First baby check-up, is it a boy or a girl?
26th of August – My birthday, I’m officially 21. I never in a million years thought that I would be in this place at my age. But I couldn’t be more happy.
16th to 21st of September – Lisa, my cousin from Scotland, visited. We had a lovely couple of days together with lots of shopping, sightseeing and great company.

Home sweet home

Home at last. I’ve been up since 7 a.m because we were going to leave the house an hour later. One hour become two, and eventually we were on our way to Sweden. Today we planned on buying food for almost the entire family. Which ment a lot of halal meat, capri-sun and as we speak a full fridge. After about five hours we arrived home and I’m finally sitting down on the couch and taking a breather.

Tomorrow is a new week and a chance to start over again. Also a new YouTube video! Hopefully I’l be able to pre-film something as well.

Have a great Sunday!

A day at home

Today I took a day off work, just because. I don’t feel the same drive and ambition towards my job and then it’s no point for me to work even though I get paid. Because we depend on the income of our customers to get paid, there was really no point in going to work when I only had one client today. It’s also nice to take a breather once in a while and recharge.

Ahead of me awaits breakfast, video editing and a job application. For some reason I always get nervous to personally deliver a CV, even though I talk to stranger every single day. The most important thing for me is to not think about it too much beforehand and remember that I’ve done this before.

Tips on submitting an application personally:

  • Dress in something you are comfortable in, but be presentable at the same time
  • Have all your papers ready. Most companies want to see a CV, certificate and diploma
  • Think ahead of what you want to say
  • Take x numbers of breaths
  • Greet the boss with a smile and a handshake

Whatever happens, happens. If it’s ment to be you will be called in for an interview, if not, something better awaits you!

Comment below and let me know if you have any adding tips to the list above.

Worst morning ever

08.00 – My alarm goes off after hitting snooze way to many times – it’s inevitable, I have to get out of bed.
09.00 – Out the door 15 minutes before the usual time. Unfortunately it’s been snowing all night and my car is snowed in.
09.15 – I’ve finally finished shuffling enough snow to get me out of the drive way. Wheels start spinning and frustration keeps on building.
09.30 – I’m on the road, finally made it up the slippery road from the house, and now my windows are foggy. I can’t see anything, but I try gently to drive out on the road. I’m not going any more then 20 km/h in second gear up the hill before I decide it’s too dangerous.
09.35 – I stop by a bus stop and try fanatically to find a solution. My fan that usually get’s the car warm is broken and it doesn’t do anything. Fog is spreading all over to the back window and I’m stuck.
09.40 – I start crying, not seeing any solution. I’m less then 2 minutes from my house and I’m too afraid to drive back. I call my work and tell them I can’t come in today. After I hang up I get the worst panic attack and I feel as if I can’t breath.
10.15 – I’m back home and the car is parked. I’ve gathered myself but am still angry about the weather. I start shuffling the drive way in hopes to get out my frustration and don’t stop before the hour has passed.

New make-up video

Yes, it has stopped snowing! Waking up and only seeing white outside your window is the worst, especially since the snow finally started to melt the last couple of weeks. Now we’re back at it again, and it’s March and stuff. I guess we’ve gotta wait for spring a little longer.


I finally released a new video on YouTube and it’s my go-to make-up whenever I’m in a rush, which is like every single day. I usually don’t were make-up as often as I did before, just because I don’t want to get used to only seeing my face fully made up and not liking how I actually look. I see so many girls that hate to go outside their own home without mascara or blush, and it’s not supposed to be that way. Make-up should be fun and artistic, and not a daily need for it.

I wil hopefully also shoot and release a review of the products used in the video above. Have a lovely Wednesday. Only two more days till the weekend!

Happy Wednesday

I’ve already awake the last five hours, eaten breakfast & lunch, which usually doesn’t happen before I’m at work. I’ve also finished painting the wall in the living room and the cabinet doors in our room, which concludes my DIY project. The clock is ticking away and I’m off to work soon.

I’ve seen the most incredible full moon the last couple of days and it can still be seen over the horizon in the early morning. And when I see a view so magnificent I can’t help but to think that no man could ever paint a picture that beautiful. I even tried to take some photographs but I couldn’t capture the colors and the full size of it. It truly is created perfectly by God.

I wish you all a happy Wednesday! Enjoy the day that has been given to you.

Monday

Yes, the day has come again.. Monday. Good morning! It’s sunny and still a bit frosty outside and a new week has begun. My day already started off when the alarm clock rang at 6 am. There was really no point in going back to bed so I stayed up, drank my morning coffee in silence and ate breakfast. After this post I’ll be on my way to buy some DIY things that I want to get ahead of at home. I feel that spring is coming now that February almost is over and I thought it would be time to freshen up at home a little bit. Stay tuned!

Happy Monday, make the most of today!
