What I have been up to…

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Today I thought I’d give you a little insight into my personal life again. I did these posts in the past under the title ‘Instagram’ as they are a round up of some pictures I posted on there. However, I didn’t find the name apt anymore. So here we are with a new name and tons of new pictures. These will take you back 6 weeks or so, starting just before Christmas. These pictures are in no particular order. Enjoy!

I toasted to the New Year with friends and a glass of Kir

I did some shopping at the I Love Beauty event.
I already reviewed the Banana Dreams powder and the Maybelline Master Conceal

Of course I had to check out the Christmas nail collections.

I spent a few days on the couch being sick with a nasty throat infection. Luckily I felt a lot better just a few days before Christmas.

After being sick in the lead up to Christmas, I hit the gym full force in the new year.

I created a last minute Christmas make up look….

… and bought some new make up palettes.

I tried my hand at some homemade, wheat free pancakes. I found a recipe online, adapted it to suit my needs and the result was scrumptious. So scrumptious that I couldn’t help but share.

It’s good to update your home decor from time to time. So I took some time to get some of my summer vacation pictures printed and framed them in these Xenos frames.

Christmas outfit of the day! It was my mom’s idea to show up at our traditional family dinner wearing Christmas sweaters. I decided to pull out all the stops and paired mine with a glitter skirt and metallic brogues.

At the I Love Beauty event I watched how Lush makes Angels on Bare Skin. It truly is just a handful of ingredients. What’s more is that we all got to take a pot home.

My brother gifted me his Nespresso machine. If you’d have told me I’d end up drinking coffee every day a year ago, I’d have told you that you are nuts. But yep, I know do just that. Only on work days though. I tend to not need coffee on my days off.

If you read my blog then this picture should be familiar. It is my gravatar because I really liked it. I took this picture when taking pictures for the review of the Benefit blush kit.

Just my make up for a work day. I’ve decided that Friday’s is my ‘colorful’ day. I’ve been busting out some of my most colorful eyeshadow palettes such as the Urban Decay Vice palettes to create different looks ever week. It’s a nice change up from the usual neutrals!

Days are starting to get longer which means I get to see sunrises from the train again.

Concert number 1 of this year has already taken place as well. I saw De Staat play in my hometown at the end of January. I already bought tickets to see 3 other bands: Savages in March, DIIV in April and Jack Garratt in May.

Yep, I tried Indigo lipstick. Not sure how much I like it yet. Definitely not a work appropriate look. And it makes my teeth look green. :-s

Last but not least, I went to the gym last week, not for a workout, but for a well-deserved massage after a full day of grading and curriculum plan writing which took me until well into the evening. After that though, it was time for a blissful week of spring break vacation. Sadly, today’s already the last day and if you want to see what I was up to this week, you’ll have to stay tuned for the next ‘what I have been up to’.

What have you been up to?
