A gold cup of coffee

Yesterday was a lovely, relaxing Friday. I actually love the beginning of the weekend, starting my Friday of by listening to Surah Al-Kahf. I felt a little bit extra after filming my Sunday video so I pampered up and went out to the playground. My son loves it there and he’s become so active, wanting to walk around everywhere. After an hour there we made our way back home.

His nap was long over due so I tucked him in and started making dinner. In the evening again we made our way to his grandfather aka my father. He always starts of really shy but when he’s warmed up and used to the environment he is his own self – playing, walking and talking.

 This was yesterday brunch, sipping a cup of coffee from my new gold mug. My mum wanted to spoil me a little when we were out shopping on Wednesday, and even though I actually didn’t need these cups, they looked so inviting and great for pictures. So I got two and they have both already been in use.

Today I’m thinking about talking a stroll out to the playground again but first I have to edit tomorrows video. I’ll be sharing my tips on how I lost my baby weight and how to start working out again after having a child. After that video I’m done with baby talk for a while and will be back making ‘day in the life’ or fashion/beauty related videos.

I hope you have a great weekend!

Life’s too short not to be doing what you love

At the moment I’m sending out my resume, in deep search for a new job. When I started high school, at 16 years old, I never imagined becoming a hairdresser. I actually wanted to go design & textile and then major in sewing and designing clothes. I can’t say I regret my decision, because having a high demanded job which I can apply anywhere in the world is great. But I can’t see myself in this business for the rest of my life. I can’t see myself at my workplace because I don’t see a future there. Maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t believe I can grow into a higher position there.

Life’s too short not to be doing what you love. And it’s time to implement what I say into actions. 


These pictures were taken a while back when I filmed my autumn try on haul (link). Though I won’t be wearing light pink pants anymore – I do have the same pants in a dark burgundy color which is so perfect for this time a year.

Relax

One problem that I have is that I don’t know how to relax. Somehow I have it in my brain that I always have to do something. I can’t just take a breather. And if I do take a minute or two to relax.. and just be, before I know it I’ll be thinking about the next thing I feel I have to do. But that’s the thing, I don’t really have anything I have to do. I guess it’s just all in my head and that’s something I have to work on. Well, now that the little one is sleeping  I have to try and sprint to the shower and freshen up a little. Who knows when the next feeding session will arrive or the next diaper change will occur. Little things like brushing your teeth suddenly get forgotten and you get used to seeing yourself in sweatpants with no make-up on. Wish me luck.

Shades of Grey

It’s been two days since my fiasco with the car and it’s not going a 100% yet so I will take it to the repair shop tomorrow. Hopefully I will get home safely today. Nothing really exciting happening when you’re not going to work but I did finish filming another video which will go live on Monday at 12 p.m.

For the rest of day I’m going to relax, eat good food and enjoy the moment.

Happy Saturday

Ok, so it’s the morning again. I said I would post several times yesterday and somehow my feet only found their way to the couch and then my bed between 10 & 11 o’clock. I can’t remember when I fell into bed, barely changing into my pjs. I was so tired, so exhausted. I didn’t even know it. I think this is the first time I’m actually sitting down and just breathing. Listening to the silence around me. And some footsteps in the distance.  Today will hopefully be a nice and calm day, where I can check of some things on my o so famous ‘to-do’ list. That list will never end but on the agenda today are only some small things I have to do.

Happy Saturday,

Life, Workout

A lazy kinda day

So I didn’t manage to rise to this not so very sunny Saturday any earlier then the time I went to bed yesterday. I woke up to the rain dripping on my window and after numerous minutes on my phone checking every single social network I thought it was time for some breakfast.

Now my plan is actually to work out since it’s been over a week since the last one and only thinking about it makes me want to get up and do something. And the rest of the day is planned on spending with friends and family.

I’m so tired I didn’t even come up with a title.. what I should be doing is probably be in bed already since I’ve slept way to little this week, maybe even the whole month, but instead I made myself a cup of coffee. I still got some episodes to catch up to so there is no way I’m going to sleep at 22.00. And now I’m going to be brutally honest and say that I don’t remember why I even started writing this post. Sorry. Must be too late already or am I just getting old really fast..? Don’t answer that.

It was nice catching up again and I’ll be back when I have something interesting going on in my life.
