Nostalgic spring cleansing

Good afternoon~

I'm happy to announce it's finally my favorite season of Spring! Actually it's been spring for a almost a month but we can ignore that right? I've been a tad busy because people tend to use the changing of the season to clean the entire house and to make some personal changes! Well I have accidentally dyed my hair dark brown but that's a story for my next post I'm afraid. I have many feelings.

Anyway, today has been a productive day so far. I spent most of my time cleaning my computer and the many folders I have created over the years. It's such a chore but in the end I end up with a much better system of storing things. Also I have discovered some older photos which is always fun!

The main reason for my post was actually a couple of playlist videos I found on Youtube. I've been playing them while tidying up and I found the music to be really nostalgic? It's not even from my era and not even the correct language. I'm really not sure how I stumbled upon this but I felt like sharing this with you. I'm sure someone will love it too!

The music is really mellow (As we can see by the title, very obvious?) but it really evokes a feeling that I love. It's super easy to listen too. It's not really quite background music because it varies quite a lot between songs. I really recommend listening to these playlists. There are actually various volumes and parts so there is a lot to listen too.

I've been listening to all of the mixes on and off for the past few days but as today was especially sunny and sweet it made the connection to spring fairly easy. I'm sure some of you will really enjoy the music too. If you know of any similar mixes feel free to send them my way as well!

My new years resolutions

Hello everyone~

Are you perhaps thinking about your new years resolutions yet? Personally I really try to make a good list every single year to work on my hobbies and self improvement but I hardly ever finish them at all. I wonder why it is so difficult to work though a list like that?

I always thought it is because it's easier to remain the way as you are rather than challenging yourself to change something. Change sounds easy but it is actually quite hard..

My new years resolutions for 2017 are as following!

- Work more on my Blog and on my Instagram
- Dye my hair a more natural blonde and cut my bangs
- Start learning a new language
- Lose 5 to 7 kilograms
- Make an effort to be a more positive person
- Try to do my very best at work
- Clean around the house more often and keep things tidy
- Visit London and perhaps Paris again
- Take better care of my body and my health
- Start taking vitamins for my hair
- Aim to be a better girlfriend and friend 
- Try to stretch every other day and become more flexible

As you can see I tried to keep my resolutions very straight forward. It's easy to make a list that's very extensive and difficult but if you set better goals for yourself it will also be easier to fulfill them. I really hope I can manage to fulfill at the very least half of these. It's always fun to try and be a better version of yourself.

What kind of new years resolutions do you have for 2017?

So here it is; Merry Christmas, everybody is having fun!

Hello everyone!

Merry Christmas to you all. It's now the second day of Christmas so I hope everyone had a really nice first Christmas day. I spent mine visiting my grandfather and my boyfriend relatives. It was super nice to spend some time with them on this special day. What kind of things did you do? I assume most people spent it with their family too.

In the evening we ate a wonderful Christmas dinner and tonight we'll be dining again! I love these two days so so much! Anyway after our first Christmas dinner we unwrapped our gifts so I'll show mine in a little more detail now. I already posted an overview image on Instagram but this is a little better don't you think?

This sweater is from Forever21 and it's so soft! I'm really in love with it. Also it's funny that I received this since I gifted my boyfriend a similar striped sweater but in black. So now we can officially go out and be twinsies~

The little bunny figurine is actually a night light for kids but I thought it was so cute to place on my desk or something. I received that one from my boyfriend.

The amazing gloves were a gift from my mother and they are from River Island. They are genuine leather and very good quality. It's really difficult to find good gloves for me since I have very long and thin fingers so these are amazing.

The over the knee socks are quite obviously from H&M and they were a gift from my boyfriend. He really loves over the knee socks on girls so he's hoping they will actually fit me like that. Since I'm rather tall we are never really sure if they will actually be over the knee on me haha

These gifts are all given by my sweet boyfriend and they are all from H&M as well. The watch is so adorable right? I think I have to wear it on my right arm since I wear my fitbit on the left but I'll figure that out in the future.

This is a super amazingly toasty scarf from H&M as well. The color is a bit difficult to capture but it's basically a very light pink. I'm really pleased with this because my only other scarf is kept at my office since the heating is not fabulous over there. Now I can use this not to freeze outside!

The shoes are also from H&M. My boyfriend actually bought these in front of me so I knew I was getting these but he packaged them anyway!

Super fuzzy and cute slippers to match all my other pink stuff. Just in case you have not noticed; I do pretty badly in the winter time. Just like my mother I do really badly in the cold.

The red item is actually a pair of very thick winter socks/slippers. They are hard to capture in a photo but they are so soft and warm. I'll probably wear them a lot this season. Both items are also from H&M.

This is my most coveted item and I am actually wearing this right now. This is a super fuzzy home wear type hoodie. It's a bit hard to photograph as it's rather long (A little bit longer than mid thigh) but that means it's super comfortable to wear it. It's also a bit more charming than the red snuggie I was wearing around the house previously.

Both these wonderful books are gifts from my mother. The left novel is Miss Maple and the right one is Hercule Poirot. Both characters are my utter favorites so I can't wait to read them. I have various other books from the same series in my bookcase already.

So these are my last two gifts. The DVD for 'God help the girl' which is a really really good movie (And Emily Browning is SO gorgeous, can I have her face) and the 'Goat simulator' game for the PS4. I know the latter one does not fit the overall theme but I wanted the game for a really long time and it's so funny. It's basically a pointless game where you are a goat, running around while licking people and causing chaos. It's very therapeutic.

What kind of gifts did you get for Christmas?

A nice fresh start

Hi everyone!

Today I made the decision to make all of my previous blog posts private. I noticed now that for some time I did not really know which direction this blog was taking. Perhaps this was because there was no clear direction at all, I was just making random posts with no real connections in between. This also causes less creativity and less urges to blog. 

From now onward I want to make this a beautiful place filled with lots of enthusiasm and positive vibes! I want to show case more of myself and my hobbies. I want to travel more even if it's within my own country and show you guys the journey!

My old posts are still in my overview but they are hidden for now. At some point I might make them visible again after checking them. There are quite a few that are still Me after all!

So for everyone who is still reading this blog; I hope to see you soon!

The state of dreaming

Good evening,

In my city it is still officially winter however my brain is already in spring mode as the weather here has been simply lovely for the past few days. Finally my very favourite time of the year is returning and I can begin to swap out my winter garments for lighter items. It's such a refreshing thing to do at the start of the season, I love reorganizing my wardrobe.

Aside from that I have been taking many photographs lately. I am not sure why but my confidence has really picked up since some time. Due to this I have also been using Instagram more often, you will be able to find the link in my social media widget.

Unfortunately it is a little bit too chilly to go outside without tights and a light coat but since I am so looking forward to it I am already makes all kinds of sweet coordinates for when the time does finally arrive. I found a few news ways to wear clothes that I thought I had gotten bored of so that is very nice indeed.

Now I should be getting to bed since I have another interview tomorrow. I hope I will be able to do well on this one. If you could possible share some luck with me? I'd love that!
