Chasing Likes Through Double Taps

After deleting my social media I suddenly remember how my time was spent before using it. How I used to have time to enjoy my meals without scrolling through Instagram. Or how I actually get time to read the blogs I used to love instead of just skimming through to see the pretty pictures. I found myself wasting my precious time – the time we have so little of and that goes by faster each year. At the end of the day it was neither beneficial or good for me. Whether I was posting a new picture, searching for likes and comments, waiting for my next follower. Or scrolling through to find my heart get jealous of what I couldn’t deliver through amazing photography skills or the number of likes I saw flashing in my face.

I need to start focusing on myself in the real world and not the visual concept we call social media.

No one dares to show the real side of life – only chasing likes through double taps.

DIY closet door knobs

I finally got these crystal knobs for our bedroom closets. When we moved in here there were only these boring white ones from IKEA and I’ve thought about making it a bit more classy for a while now. I browsed through the web and found these from an interior store. You can find all kinds of unnecessary stuff there but also some really cute bits and bobs.

I love how the light catches the sparkles – it makes the whole room get a bit more class. You can find them here: Diamond knobs

Simple changes like these make my day. You don’t always have to invest in a whole new closet to get a new look.

Little things

Don’t lose your self respect

self-respect
noun |
self-re·spect | self-ri-ˈspekt |
a proper respect for oneself as a human being


Don’t dress up to seek the admiration of other people.
The glances and looks or even stares.
Do you really want this?
You say you want respect but how can you get it,
when all you do is showing your beauty to the outside world for recognition.
You say you want to fall in love with your mind but you only display our body.

A normal Sunday

As we speak I’m uploading a new YouTube video. As soon as it’s live tomorrow at 12 p.m. I will link it here as well. Hopefully you’ll like it as much as I do. Cause I love to put my effort into these videos and editing has become quite fun! The videos will contain the things I love, like fashion & beauty. Look books, reviews, make-up tutorials, holiday videos and much more!

Today was a very chill day and I tried to enjoy it as much as I could before going back to work tomorrow. Luckily I only have to work 6 hours tomorrow and the upcoming week I have a lot of short shifts. I finished my usual Sunday cleaning, finally worked out again and I ate, a lot.

Since my internet is laging a lot right now I will cut it short and say good night. Sleep tight.

Valentine’s day

I’m finally sitting down after cleaning the apartment, making dinner and doing the dishes. Right now I’m watching ‘Valentines Day’ on mute in the background. But I just wanted to stop by and write a few notes. Today is also mothers day here which means a lot of flowers, cakes and presents for all.

I’m gonna go and spend the rest of the day with my valentine. I hope you have a wonderful day wherever you are!

London Eye

This time last week we were at the airport about to go trough security. I looked back the last week and thought about what I did exactly a week ago. It’s weird how time flies by before your eyes, and the next second you blink everything has changed. We try to enjoy the moment, but somehow time doesn’t want us to and it runs through our fingers.

Last Tuesday we had a great sightseeing day in London. We slept in, had breakfast and then around noon we went for a walk through Hyde park, as per usual. At the end we took a taxi to London Eye. We exchanged our tickets and waited a while before we went on the 30 minute ride. There was a lot of wind that day but still such a beautiful day. The sun was shinning and we got to see all of London from above.

The fairies wheel went slow, enough time to enjoy the view and take lots of pictures. I actually wanted to wait till the sun was setting, but we went on a little bit too early, but it was still so pretty.
