Worst week in my life

Worst week in my life

Ok, maybe I’m exaggerating, but I’ve not had the best 48 hours. Everything went downhill since Wednesday night and now I’m sitting here on the living room floor with the worst headache since this afternoon.

I don’t want to keep on dragging this complain wagon any longer, and I will try to look at life from a more positive way.


Even though we don’t celebrate Christmas, I do want to give something back to my family, especially my mum. And since this is a time of year where people usually meet, I ended up buying some gifts for my family.
It was most natural for me to buy something hair related since I work at a salon. So both my brothers will receive a shampoo. My oldest brother will also get a 3D puzzle I thought was so cool, maybe even something I should have bought for myself. And my brother in between will get a sports t-shirt. I still have my parents but I’ve got them covered with something.
I’m off to bed hoping to sleep away this awful headache. I have to be up, ready and back at the salon by 9 am, so good night.

In desperate need of sleep

In desperate need of sleep

What was suppose to be a stressless evening turned out to be far from that. My own fault really, cause I always get so invested in projects I do and have zero patience with myself. I always wish that I can learn everything at once and it just works right away, but it usually never does.

Today I spent my hours from 8 pm till now in front of the computer. Actually two computers. Photoshop on one and YouTube on the other. I was determined to finish a new profile picture, channel art and a watermark.

I’m only 100% happy with the new channel art, the other two I still have to tweak and fix. Other than that I have a headache and I’m in desperate need of sleep. But I guarantee you, I’ll be laying in bed another hour before I fall asleep. At least that’s what happened last night.

Good night

The yearly autumn flue

The yearly autumn flue

The last couple of days I've been roaming around at home, having 'Fuller House' as a background noise while I looked after my baby and myself. We've been sick since Monday, sneezing every two seconds, wrapped in blankets and wool clothes. Sleep is definitely the best medicine and hot lemon tea with honey.

On another note, my brother had his birthday on Tuesday so I tried myself out in the kitchen and made an (almost) vegan cake. Some ingredients I didn't even find in the store so I had to use my regular non vegan supplies.

Today we're back to drinking lemon tea, cuddling up on the sofa and trying to get rid of the yearly autumn flue.

Life is running a marathon

Life is running a marathon

My birthday was this weekend and I turned 22. I never really gave much thought to the year when I turn 22. I guess it never crossed my mind fully.

My numbers start to feel empty. Years fly by like the wind, hardly even touching me. Leaving a cold shiver and then 365 days have gone by again.

When I look back it’s all just a blur. How is it that my childhood years went by so slow? And now it’s like life is running a marathon. Can’t it all just stop for a second? Let me live so that I can breath in all my memories.

When your living room is looking like a playground

When your living room is looking like a playground

The last couple of days have been stressful. With a little crawler here at home you have to get extra alert. But now that I’ve finally bought some baby proofing it’s safer to crawl around. I never knew how fast you could get to places when you’re on your stomach. But it’s of course fun to explore everything new around you. My living room is definitely looking like a playground and my inner neat freak is freaking out a little, but I know everything will be nice and cleaned up again in the evening.

Yesterday was just super hectic. The day started off having to drive into the city early in the morning to try and fix a passport. Luckily I’m getting mine renewed but we have to find a different solution for the little one. At least I have today off so I might go shopping and hopefully I’ll be able to film another video for you.


Here are some snapshots for this week. Don’t forget to check by my YouTube channel where I try to upload as much as possible. I’ve also ordered some new equipment from Amazon so hopefully that will arrive soon. Fingers crossed.

Release the pain

Release the pain

The last 48 hours have been long and exhausting. The quilt drives me crazy and before I lay my head down I think about the things I didn’t managed to do. I beat myself up, and I’m bruised from the inside out. I rage at the smallest things but put on a smile whenever I’m outside. I don’t recognizes myself anymore. I’m strangled by this life and wish for the time it will end. This is not the life I want to be living, waiting for death to arrive just to feel the release of the stinging pain.

I know this only took a minute to read but it helps. Every unsaid word can be written down forever, and that helps. Take a big breath, and don’t stop breathing.

London recommendations

London recommendations

Here’s a one-on-one on what I’ve learned and experienced through my London trip. I hope you enjoy and find these tips useful.


Flight: Ryan Air. I almost always use Ryan Air when I want to fly cheap. I haven’t found any other cheaper flights and it’s great when the flight isn’t longer then two hours! I couldn’t bear to be cramped in a tight space longer then that. We got our tickets for less then 100 pounds for 1 person, back and forth with a seat reservation. We decided to order one luggage and surprisingly that wasn’t so expensive.

Hotel: 27 Paddington hotel. This hotel I found through booking.com and before I made my deciton to upgrade from another hotel I also looked on trip advisor. It’s a great place to read reviews from people and also see how it actually looks because visitors can upload their own pictures. The rooms are very clean and you get room service every day if you’d like. The hotel is divided into to tall buildings besides each other. You get a continual breakfast included and this is served in a little room by the reception overlooking the street.

Outdoors: Hyde Park is a wonderful park with lots of nature and animals. We went there every day, feed the squirrels and also to go from one place to another. It has a river in the middle and a bridge half way through so that you’ll be able to cross to the other side. You can go through Hyde Park to get to Harrods or Oxford Street.

Sightseeing: London Eye & Sea Life <- Direct link to buy a one day pass to London Eye and a 30-day open pass to Sea Life. You’ll also get a 4D experience and the possibility to take ‘green shot’ photos with your choose of background. You’ll get the most amazing view from the paris wheel and it’s a sight to be seen at night. Suitable for adults and children. Sea Life is a big aquarium with all types of fish you can think of. It will take you approximately 1 hour to go through the whole aquarium and you’ll be able to take pictures or video.

Shopping: Oxford Street & Harrods are defiantly the two main shopping markets. Harrods is a huge mall with all designer brands you can think of. In the area you’ll also find Topshop and other high end brands. Oxford Street is legendary and I don’t think you can visit London without going to the o so famous shopping street. Form high end shops to middle class and cheap shops, you’ll find it all. River Island, Mango, Primark, Victoria Secret are just a few. If you’d like something to eat whilst shopping I recommend turning away from Oxford and in to smaller street where they usually have restaurant after restaurant to choose from.

Food: Chili Chutney Waterloo – European & Indian restaurant near London Eye. A cute little restaurant we found whilst we where at the London Eye. You’ll get a lot for your money without having to pay a fortune. They have a range of spicy foods, vegetarian options, meat and chicken or fish to choose from.

Taxi service: Exclusive airports <- you’ll often get a discount when booking online. The best spend money I could think of. I hate rushing with my suitcase through public transportation, especially in a city I don’t know. That’s why is was crucial to find a taxi service to and from the airport. You type in your dates, pick up and final declination, name and time, and they’ll pick you up wherever you need. Nice, clean cars with good drivers.


I hope you found this useful for your next London trip. I will defiantly go back if the opportunity arrives.

My one & only

My one & only

My one and only, this one’s for you.

I never thought I would get so lucky
The days I prayed
Wishing we would get forever
Five years later we got together
Now we’re hoping for our ever after

You’ve got me addicted
Addicted to the way you speak
And even your heartbeat

From the second I saw you
Till the last breath I’ll take
You are the one I want to share everything with

I won’t be scared cause you’ve got me now
There ain’t no other, cause we made it through
And you know, I will always belong to you
