My Makeup Memories

If you saw my makeup declutters, you will have heard me mentioning my cubby with makeup memories. In my makeup collection, I keep a special part where I keep makeup that I know I will never ever get rid of. They are either special because I bought them during my travels, because they are limited…

What I’ve been up to #6

The last time I did a What I’ve Been Up To? September last year. That’s right, it’s been over 4 months since I last gave you an overview of what has been going on in my life. The reason is very simple: I’ve been busy, crazy busy. I don’t share much of what I’m up…

216 of 2016

It’s become quite the tradition for me to write up a giant list of facts of my year in review. I usually post these on January 1st, but I’m sure nobody minds me doing it a few days later this year. And this time I’ve decided to tag on a few new year’s resolutions/ a…

Why I don’t share much about my private life

Yes I post daily blogs, yes I post something on Instagram on a daily basis, but do I share much of my ‘real life’ online? No I don’t. What I share is hardly ever related to work, friends, family and other activities I do in my daily life. When I do share, I am vague…

Happy moment #6

A bit of an impromptu blog post for you today, but I thought I’d do one of my happy moments again today. It’s been ages since I last did these and I thought it was time I shared with you some recent moments that made me smile. Time to share some positivity! What are your…

What I’ve been up to #5

The end of summer is almost here and since my summer vacation especially was filled with tons of fun stuff, I am posting an overview of some of the things I did rather more quickly than I usually do. If you would like a more regular peek at what I am up to, then follow…

Instagram #7

My picture taking streak did not dwindle down this month. I think I may have started to become a little bit addicted to Instagram these days and I try to have a new picture up every day. And so far that’s been working. My next Instagram overview will therefore contain tons of pictures as these…

Instagram #6

Time to show you my life in pictures again. I’ve been taking quite a few pictures lately and so I gathered enough pictures for a new blog post a lot quicker than usual. Without further ado, I’m sharing a glimpse into my life of the past month. If you like the update asap, then please…

Personal update #7

It’s been a while since I last updated you on my life. I haven’t written anything since July! I was simply so busy getting back to work and getting my life back on track that I didn’t have much inspiration for a personal update post. I also had quite a few things that I was…

Instagram pictures #4

It’s been a month since I last gave you a little peak into my personal life, so I thought it would be time to do that again. These pictures roughly span the months of May and June. I went to Frankfurt, watched the World Cup, listened to records, and had lots of yummy food. If…

Happy birthday to… ME!

Today just a short and quick note as today is my birthday! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! I was born on 6 July 1984, which makes me a whooping 30 years old. Yikes, I’m getting old! Or like a good friend of mine decided to put it when she turned 30: I’m 29.95 including shipping & handling. Luckily for…

Instagram pictures #3

Whoops it’s been a while since I did one of these, so some of these pictures go quite a while back. But I’m sure you don’t mind. Anywho, I have another look at my life in 15 Instagram pictures. If you like to see more (and be more up-to-date hah!), you can follow my instagram…

Personal update #2

So I thought I’d use this space to not only keep track of my fave beauty products, but also to write a bit about myself from time to time. As you may know, I decided to call in sick from work in January. I have been home ever since. This is what I wrote in…

Book of friendships tag

Remember those little booklets you had as a kid, to have your friends write down the things they liked etc.? Well there’s a tag going around that’s very similar to those friendship books. I saw this tag on Karin’s blog and thought I’d do it too. If you would like to do it too, you…

Little Reasons to Smile tag

This tag has been going round and I can’t remember where I found this, but I thought it would be fun to do. My little reasons to smile are: What is your little reason to smile?

Ask me anything

I just realized I have never done anything like this before: have you, my readers, ask me questions. It just never occurred to me to do one. Just the other night I was fiddling around with my blog a little bit when I saw that over 300 (!!) people are following my blog. Say whut?!…

I graduated!!!

Finally! After three years of hard work I graduated for my research Master in Communication and Information Sciences. Signing my degree Yesterday afternoon, at 4 PM, I had the last presentation for my studies ever. Well ever… I’m not sure about that yet, because you never know what the future has in store, but for…

My average day

My average day is never average. As a teacher every day is quite different and with the job I’m working now, my schedule also changes daily. I go from days filled with meetings or classes, or both, grading, prepping classes, more grading, giving feedback and wiping away tears on occasion too. I already described my…

My perfect imperfections

The perfect imperfections tag has been going round for quite a while, but I still think it’s fun to do it. Which parts of myself am I happy with? What parts of myself would I’d rather see differently? I will give you three for each question and write a bit about how I try to…

Update on me (May 2013) + poll outcomes

Woohoo, a week without posts again. Sorry about the wait, but unfortunately the past two weeks were just too busy. Who am I kidding: the past 2 months were insanely busy for me. Here’s what I’ve been up to and I’ll also say a thing or two on posts to come. It’s been roughly two…

Tag: What makes me truly happy?

Time for another personal note! It seems that people are enjoying these little peeks into my life and into me, so I would like to continue doing them. Leave me a comment below and let me know which tag you would like to see me do next. For now, enjoy your Thursday: only one more…
