As you may know, in the last months of 2015 I made a roadtrip through the United States.
I had such a great time there. And I wanted to share some of the moments in which I was the happiest. Hope you enjoy!
- sunsets, especially the ones in California
- trying new coffee places
- hearing Christmas music everywhere
- writing in my travel diary
- mornings at the hostel; making plans with people you just met 10 minutes ago
- seeing the things (e.g. Times Square) you saw in movies
- beautiful views from the Greyhound bus
- walking around for the first time in a new city
- trying new food (I have become obsessed with chili cheese fries)
- meeting inspirational people who will change your perspective on life
I got some january favorites for you to kick start your year with some good books, movies and perfumes.
Let It Snow
This book is perfect for this season and it’s almost impossible for the writers to disappoint you. It’s the perfect book to snuggle up in bed with your hot chocolate/tea/coffee while it’s snowing (or when lack of snow, raining) outside. And I am in love with the cover.
Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs
I got this perfume for my birthday in a giftbox, which also contained a body lotion and a shower gel. I like the way the bottle looks and the giftbox is a really cute box you can use to store stuff in.
Victoria’s Secret body mist The one I got is Pure Seduction, but Strawberries & Champagne is also on my wishlist. Pure Seduction is really sweet, but since it’s a body mist it’s not too strong.
Eternity by Calvin Klein
This is kind of an all time favorite perfume, but I recently bought a new one. It’s a really light, fresh scent, so it’s perfect for every occasion.
Grace Of Monaco
A movie about Grace Kelly, played by Nicole Kidman. I haven’t actually finished watching this, so I can’t really judge this movie yet, but so far I like it. It will probably end up with my other classics (Coco Avant Chanel, The Great Gatsby, Breakfast At Tiffany’s).
I recently bought this jewellerybox at Xenos and it fits everything perfectly.
And ofcourse my yoga pants, makes going to the gym a lot less of a chore. 😉
Also this article I found last week on www.whowhatwear.co.uk about closet cleaning. (They have quite a lot of useful stuff about closet cleaning.) This article is about 5 closet cleaning tips you never heard before and (to my suprise) I had actually never heard them before and they are really useful!
2016 is still fresh, new and full of opportunities. That’s why I wanted to share some of the reminders which make me feel like I’m improving myself. I find it hard to keep my resolutions, so I was wondering if this would work better for me.
- Stop spending time with shitty people.
There are a lot of people out there who will make you feel unwanted, dumb, annoying, etc. It’s just not worth it to spend time with people who don’t make you feel good about yourself. Figuring that out now, can save you a lot of regret about wasted time with those people, and that’s time you will never get back. Your time is precious, remember that.
- Set goals for each month.
I recently bought an adorable notebook from Hema and I thought it would be perfect for getting organised. In that notebook I’ll be putting my monthly goals (such as; run X miles, read X books, etc.). But also for example birthdays that are coming up, songs I have to listen to and inspirational quotes. It’s like a planner and I’m really hoping this works out.
- A good night’s sleep can fix almost anything.
It doesn’t matter if you’re getting over a breakup or just feeling under the weather. After those 8 hours of sleep you might be still heartbroken, but you’ll feel rested and it will be a lot easier to move on when you take good care of yourself.
And last but not least a few self-explanatory reminders:
– Listen to amazing music
– Sleeping with make-up on will give you breakouts
– Red lipstick will (most likely) make you feel instantly better
– Smile as often as you can
– Sit up straight
Happy new year everybody, make 2016 a good one!
