OUTFIT | HOW I GOT OUT OF MY BLOGGING RUT

24 February 2018

Hello, I am back again. This week has been quite uneventful, as I spent most of my time this week in bed curing yet another flu. Thankfully I am finally feeling better again and I now only have to blow my nose every 10 minutes instead of every 5 minutes, so I feel like that's a massive improvement. This past few days being in bed all day got me thinking about the blog though.

I guess the fever just went to my head and made me 'realize' things (gosh I am really hard trying not to sound like Kylie in that one clip). The realization that came to me in this feverish state is that I am finally enjoy blogging again. I feel like I am finally writing content again, that I am proud of. Last year I may have lost a bit of my passion for blogging. I never really knew what I wanted to talk about in blog posts, I was just feeling pressured to blog and was never truly satisfied with the content I created. Quitting isn't something that I like to give in to, so I just kept forcing myself to write blog posts anyway. However, towards the end of January I got this sudden boost of inspiration, motivation and willpower. I wanted to get back into things again, because as much as 2017 was a lovely year, I felt like 2017 also was the year I pressed pause in my life a bit.

OUTFIT | HOW I DESTRESS BEFORE BED

19 February 2018



In Saturday's post I already mentioned that I tend to overthink as soon as I get into bed. This year I made it a resolution of mine to destress a lot more before I go to bed. I try to be more aware of actually going to bed at night, whilst trying to let the events that happened throughout the day go. There are a few steps in my night routine that I need to do before I actually go to bed. These are the steps in my 'destress for bed' routine.

BEAUTY | BACK TO BASICS MAKEUP ROUTINE

12 February 2018


The past few weeks have been quite stressful to me. I had a difficult time at uni and was really starting to notice it while sleeping. It had quite an impact on my skin and I started breaking out. Instead of covering up my face with lots of makeup throughout the day, I actually decided to massively decrease my makeup routine. That way I wasn't clogging up too pores and I could still feel somewhat confident while I had my breakouts.

I basically copied my makeup routine from when I came back from holiday. However I did make a few tweaks here and there. I started using older products, I went back to basics. Besides that I also started using a few products that are new in my collection. Not only are the makeup products in this routine very limited, it also makes my routine in the morning even quicker! Which means we can have an extra five minutes in bed and have breakfast in the morning, which is a first for me.
