This day (19th of april) my love and I are together for 9,5 years, woohoo!!!!!!
I’m not one to publicly start slobbering on him, I personally think it’s a bit jucky to drool all over him on every other occasion. But let’s say he still makes me the happiest girl in the world. I just could not let the occasion pass without saying a word about it. I’m not going to linger on the subject very long but hey, 9,5 years is a long time! Before this relationship, the longest one I had was about 3 months. Men just could not hold my attention for a very long time.
It feels like only yesterday I got off the train and I looked in his eyes and… there I was, staring into my future. Little did I know: today we own a house, 2 cats and we have a great life together which I enjoy every. Single. Day. He makes me smile when I think I can only cry, he gives me butterflies with just a smile or a touch and I just feel a bit incomplete when he’s not around.
He’s simply the best man I could wish for.
See? This is the kind of blogpost I hate. Oh no, I did it too!!!
Luckily there’s also some makeup in this blogpost so it’s not all about the loveydovey stuff.
So, on to make-up related things: I saw a look on the Preen.me facebook page that I really liked. However, it was heavily photoshopped and I thought the was a crying shame. I think photoshop can improve minor flaws but if you start to blur the biggest part of the look, it’s not about the makeup anymore.
Anyway, the look I took the inspiration from had a lot of brown in it and I used mainly reds and purples. And since I added the pointy detail in the inner corner, it reminded me a bit of arabic looks I’ve seen. And of a sunset. Hence the name…
For some time I’ve been thinking about where I want to go with my blog. I still love makeup but I don’t like the gaps of weeks that I sometimes leave. I could work harder at my blog, sure. But like I said before: I have a fulltime job and a busy private life and sometimes I just don’t feel like blogging. Call me lazy, call me a bad blogger (some have) but hey, that’s just me and I’m actually ok with that.
It took me some time to go from guilty about feeling like I failed at the blog thingy, to being ok with not updating for some time. But that’s where I’m at now and it feels nice not having to race to our computer when I have some time to do… absolutely nothing.
The other day I ran into this video and I just loved it. I shared it on Facebook but I think you guys might like it too. And I think I might do this more often, just little updates with something that moved me or made me laugh. Maybe even the occasional rant or something. Let’s see how that works out.
This video caught my attention and I love the introduction the brother does, the moment he chokes up was the moment I started crying and I didn’t stop until the video ended. I hope you like it too. I’m a big softy for emo stuff like this, lol.
This year I participated in Secret Twitter Santa again. It’s so much fun to do! I’ll explain again: you apply to get into Secret Twitter Santa and then you get added to an Elfster group. In this group they tell you for whom you will be shopping this year, it’s fun to shop for someone that doesn’t know who you are!
The person that you’re Secret Twitter Santa to makes a wishlist with specific items they want or sometimes they just describe what kind of products they would like to get.
My “victim” Kelly didn’t know what to put on her wishlist so she asked me to look at the stuff she described and just go wild with my 15 euro’s. Your wish is my command! 1,5 weeks before Christmas I send her my package and I also received a package from my Secret Twitter Santa in that week.
It’s really terrible but each time I looked at that box my hands started to itch to just rip the tape off and see what I got. PRESEEEEEEENTS!!!!!!!!!
Seriously, I’m 30 but when it comes to presents I’m just a little kid, lol.
I made a small Dutch blogpost for the Secret Twitter Santa blog and you can read that *here* but I’d like to show and tell what I think about the products a little more elaborate on my own blog.
I just want to take some time to wish you all a Merry Christmas. It’s been a busy year and I’ve been working on this blog for more then a year now and I’m so thankful for you who read my blog. It’s great to see how many people come back every time there’s a blogpost. Thanks to everybody that has visited me in the past year.
A little update and what’s to come in the future: I don’t think I’ll have a lot of blogposts about looks in the upcoming weeks or even months because the eczema that I told you about some time ago has come back.
I might be allergic to…. wait for it… MAKE-UP! I’m going to try and figure out what product exactly I’m allergic to, could be the base of my eyeshadow or maybe even the eyeshadow itself, I just don’t know.
I’ve given it a lot of thought and I asked myself if I would stop blogging if I couldn’t do make-up anymore. Will I quit? Hell no!
But unfortunately right now it forces me to focus on other things then make-up. I’ve been very busy with sewing so I’ll make blogposts about that soon and maybe I’ll work on more other stuff like nailpolish, DIY stuff, food/recipes and things like that. Maybe there will be less updates or shorter ones but we’ll just have to see what the future brings.
Anyway, I hope you have great holidays and please be safe with all the fireworks on New Years Eve!
Some time ago it was my mothers birthday and I got her tickets to Cirque Du Soleil. I’ve been to their shows before and it’s always such a huge spectacle that I just wanted to show some pictures and stuff. We weren’t allowed to make pictures ourselves though.
