Today has been a lovely day, woke up early and had my black morning coffee in silence while watching the sunrise with Sandy. Later my mother and I met up and had first advent Fika before I had to go to work.
I’ve had the song “once upon a december” stuck in my head all night, haha. I’m going to add it to my “sweet dreams” playlist and listen to it when I go to bed (haha!) but first a small piece of candy (and one episode of a creepy tv series to relax after work...) then it’s bedtime!
What song have you had stuck in your head lately?
Lots of love,
I actually forgot it was December already and realized I didn’t have any advent calendars for sandy and me.
After work tonight I made sure we had one each. Sandy really liked the high quality treats in her cat-advent calendar and wanted more (laughs) but I had to tell her “that ain’t how advent calendars work...”
I’m almost done decorating as well, I went with a more winter themed decor this year. I don’t have a lot of Christmas spirits and I want to spend my time on decorations that can be kept through the whole winter.
I’ll make a lot of my own decorations as well (thanks to the addiction that is Pinterest combined with creativity needing to get out) hahaha, can’t wait! Have you decorated your home a lot for Christmas?
Lots of Love
Good evening, y’all!
I’ve had a pretty hectic day, mainly because of a meeting which was very exhausting but felt very relieved when it was over. That’s usually how it goes, right? How was yours?
In the afternoon it started snowing and it was these huge snowflakes which made everything look very picturesque. Sandy and I went out for a short walk in what became our own little Narnia. Speaking of...I need to change these pink flowers into a more winter-friendly blog design, hehe!
After we got back in I decluttered most of my living room and kitchen, can’t wait to be done and sell/donate the clothes etc I don’t need to keep. Found fairy lights as well and because my bedroom is rather dark I put them up above my bed, think I’ll put up a few photos on the lights like I’ve seen on Pinterest :)
Also, I’m in love with the scent “all is bright” from yankee candle, smells absolutely wonderful! Couldn’t resist it and I did need a new scented candle because all my other ones are all burnt up! Am a big fan of the Woodwick candles as well, but this time I went back to Yankee Candle:) Whats your favorite scented candle?
Lots of Love
This is the documentary I watched the other day. It's really something everyone should watch, or need to watch, today. I have an insanely heavy headache so I will leave the trailer for Minimalism below. I took some of it with a grain of salt, for example that insanely small house.. I don't think I would live like that and go "that far". But I for sure will go through all my things and sell/donate what I can and get rid of everything I do not need and that doesn't have any actual purpose or bring me joy etc. You know what I mean :)
Would be fun and very interesting to hear from someone else who's watched this documentary and hear their thoughts on it. I really liked it and again; think a lot of people need to see and hear what the people in this documentary has to say.
I feel completely unmotivated and lazy today, and have for a few days in a row. Like I'm completely drained of all my energy and I don't know why or how. Really frustrating. It being November aka the weirdest month ever doesn't make it better. I mean, this quote really sums it up "there's no afternoon it's just night after 2pm".
I guess you just have to reach a point where you're sick and tired of being sick and tired. I have watched a really good documentary about minimalism to encourage me further to declutter my apartment and life from things that don't bring any happiness or purpose to me. As you know I have taken a few steps back from a lot of social media platforms to live life more in the present. I don't want to have any pointless things absorbing my focus, time and/or disciplin. I have made a list of things I will get done tomorrow, kind of like a schedule, to start my decluttering and productiveness for real.
I have water damage in one of my windows so I'll have to call the landlord tomorrow. How frustrating, haha. I just hope it's a minor damage due to the house being old in combination with the crazy weather.
I'll make a post about the documentary I watched today and hopefully you will watch it too.
Now it's time for me to drink some herbal tea and study. How was your day?
Lots of Love
Today I’m at home studying all day, but mostly watching the snowflakes gently falling outside my window. It’s so peaceful. I’ve missed the snow believe it or not.
Found this body suit from a year ago and thought I’d try it out. Not bad, I should wear body suits more often with my jeans. Love the comfy feel of it and it’s very stylish it done right.
Anyone got any idea on how to make studying math fun?
I don't exactly know where to begin (laughs), Basically, I just got beyond sick of how people (the world tbh) today look at/value the world, other people, animals, the nature, love... Everything. The problem is that there is no value anymore. It's all so superficial, dishonest and empty that I can't even find the right words to describe it?! I've felt this way for a very long time but I can't really ignore it anymore - Enough is enough - I decided to disable all notifications for my social media accounts and get a proper cleanse. There will be very limited social media-app usage the coming 30 days. Hopefully longer than that, honestly.I thought a journal of sorts could be good to have; that's why I have risen from
My ultimate dream right now would be that money wouldnt be an issue so I could go to California for hike a la Reese Witherspoon in Wild, or travel to Nepal, Thailand or Tibet and stay at a monastery for a month or two. Another dreamy scenario would be that I could get a cabin someplace in a fairytale looking forest, live my life appreciating the simple yet most important things in life, while exploring the nature on a daily basis with my partner in crime: my adorable cat. Love her insanely much. And yes. Yes, I am pretty much the fabulous, single catlady in Aristocats (laughs).
I've felt a lot like Walter Mitty lately which hasn't helped. You know, the daydreamer who dreams of how life should or could be, but he doesn't truly live. He doesn't live in the present. I just haven't known who I am for far too long, it's not a fun feeling. Especially when I at times desperately want someone or something to tell me what to do to find my bliss, my serenity and to live my life to the fullest. To get out of this rut I feel like I'm a prisoner in. To find myself again. To find my dreams.
So! That's what I'm going to try and find out. I don't care of someone reads this, as it's purely for me and getting stuff out of my head, but if someone does read this blog and find anything I write useful or helpful, that would be great, haha. Then I've done something right, right?
Ugh, I know. No photos, how lame. But you can't have everything, can you?
Lots of Love,
