A day in the life

October 8, 2017 — 9 Comments

What do I do in a day?

I wake up somewhere between 6 am and 8 am, depending on how much I have to do. This particular day I woke up at about 7:30. I had a quick breakfast before turning on some music and getting ready for a work experience day. I always start my day with listening to Angels and Airwaves, both because their music is really relaxing and because Tom Delonge is one of my favorite singers.

While I listen to that, I do my hair, I cleanse my face, I put on some make up if I need to, to make sure I look somewhat presentable. Most of the time I just fill in my brows, put on a lipstick and go out like that. I’ve also found that if i ‘blot’ my t-zone with setting powder when I do no foundation days, I get less oily overall.

After getting ready I drive off to my schedules for the day, and arrive home many hours later, tired and eating dinner before retiring to my room to read. I love snacking on satsumas while reading.. And listening to music, or ASMR. After reading for a little bit, I usually do chores like cleaning, doing laundry, and then having a shower before returning to my favorite reading chair.

I really love having scented candles, currently I have one smelling like “clean cotton” and one smelling like “firewood”. I alternate between “firewood” and “mahogany”. I also love anything sandalwood, or just woodsy scents in general. (The framed poster in the background is a diagram of the moon with a lot of facts and whatnot)

So that’s usually what I do in a day. Now and then the reading is traded for video games, or more cleaning.. It really depends on my mood and how tired I am from my schedules. Exciting, huh? Not really, but I enjoy my own company and I enjoy reading the most.

What do you do in a day?

I did one of these last year, and I wanted to find a new one this year.. Sadly I couldn’t find one that was updated and adjusted to the calendar for 2017, so I made my own, moved things around and I think I got the days right.. I sure hope so at least! If you want to join the October blog challenge, feel free to do so! There are no rules, you can post every day, do weekly ones, do one every few days.. anything goes! I just thought I could post this before October started so that you would have time to prepare.. Or schedule posts, like I have. Happy blogging!

3 things about me

  • For a long time I was able to use my left hand just as well as my right. I had shattered my pinky finger on my right hand and had to learn to use my left while it was healing and in a cast.
  • My hair has been every color of the rainbow and more, except for blue. Not sure why it has never been that color though, it’s really pretty!
  • The thought of having cotton or paper anywhere near my mouth really freaks me out.. And it always makes dentist visits weird because they use cotton things to soak up any saliva or blood..

 Questions from Abby

  1. What’s your favourite thing about blogging? Being able to express my thoughts however I want, whenever I want.
  2. Whose someone you would like to meet? There are a lot of people, mostly those I have gotten to know through blogging, they are all so sweet! I’m really awkward in real life though, so I would probably scare them off.
  3. If you could be any animal what would you be and why? I would be a cat! All they do is sleeping, eating or receiving cuddles.. Sounds perfect!
  4. What would be your ideal Sunday? Writing blog posts, sipping on some sparkling water, listening to music then read for a while.
  5. Favourite Disney Movie? Hmm, I don’t watch a lot of movies, but I do enjoy Anastasia.

Questions from Nilsa

  1. What’s your favourite quote? This is from a video game, a bit silly but it has stuck with me for quite a few years. “Na via lerno victoria” It is in Tevene, the language of the Tevinter Imperium in Dragon Age. The quote means “Only the living know victory”.
  2. Do you have a celebrity crush? 
    Yes? Kinda? Does Ryan Haywood count as a celebrity? He’s oh so dumb but also lovely. And he lost his marbles a long time ago.

  3. What’s your least favourite thing about blogging? The spam comments… they’re so tiring to go through and to delete.
  4. Are you named after anyone? No, none that I know of!
  5. Scary movie or happy endings? And why? I prefer happy endings to scary movies, but my favorites are those movies where you don’t really know how it ends, it just leaves you with a million questions.

My questions for you

  1. If you could rearrange the seasons, in what order would you have them?
  2. Say, you get the chance to go to a different planet, would you do it?
  3. What is your favorite make up brand?
  4. What was your goal when you started blogging? Did/have you achieved it?
  5. Have you met anyone famous in real life? What was it like?

My best post

I’m not sure about this one! The one that has the most comments currently is “26 things I have learned in 26 years“.

 

I nominate anyone who reads this, so tag, you’re it! I’ve nominated so many people for this lately so if you want to do this, go ahead! I don’t want to end up nominating the same people over and over. 🙂

The Happiness Tag

August 7, 2017 — 18 Comments

I was tagged in this by my friend Rylie, but she didn’t want her blog linked because she writes about very personal subjects so I’m afraid I can’t do that! But thank you for the nomination either way, I really appreciate it.


The rules for this tag

  • List five things that makes you happy
  • Share five songs that makes you happy
  • Tag at least five bloggers that makes you happy

What makes me happy

  1. My cats. I don’t know what I would have done without them. They are always there if I need someone to vent to (even though they can’t talk back, I still talk to them about anything I need to). They are always there if I need something to hold, something to cuddle with to cheer me up. I love them more than anything in this world. They say cats are selfish but mine are far from it.
  2. Books. I love being able to read. Being able to escape to another world for a little while. Same goes for video games. Escapism is very much a real thing for me and a lot of the time it happens without me even noticing.
  3. Being able to connect with people all over the world. I live in a place with very few people and meeting new people is a difficult task. That is why I am so grateful for having the internet, being able to connect with others without having to travel to a place to do so. I guess ‘without restrictions’ is what I meant to say.
  4. Nature. Nature makes me happy. I love being outside, I love exploring the woods, walking through fields, picking the occasional berry as I walk past them. Nature is wonderful and the fresh air can always make you feel better. (Apart from during the pollen season, I always feel like death then).
  5. Being organized, that always makes me happy. I hate being messy, I hate not having things neatly put in place. Having a clean and organized home is my favorite feeling. It really helps me with feeling accomplished in life. Doesn’t matter how messy my head is as long as my home is clean.

Five songs that makes me happy

I don’t really have any overly joyful happy songs, so I’ll share some that makes me feel content, makes me feel wholesome. I think I have shared all of these before, but my favorites rarely change.

  1. Pvris – Half
  2. Meg Myers – Motel
  3. Blink 182 – I Miss you
  4. Highly Suspect – Bath Salts
  5. Chaos Chaos – Do you feel it

Five bloggers that makes me happy

I guess it’s more than 5, oops. And in no particular order.

  1. Michala
  2. Karalee
  3. Reeva
  4. Rei
  5. Storm
  6. Grace
  7. DanniiJane ( you can just share your response in the comments, it probably doesnt fit in with the travel blogs 🙂 )

I was nominated for this by Cassandra in her post over at HappinessInLipstick! Thank you so much, I really appreciate that you thought of me for this one. I really enjoy doing these little challenges.

The questions Cassandra asked:

  1. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?
    Only one thing? Well, I guess I would go with Pizza because you can make it  in so many different ways and use so many different toppings for it!
  2. If you were stranded on an island and could only bring 5 things what would they be?
    A water filter, a lighter or matches, a swiss army knife, a flashlight and tinned food.
  3. Why did you start blogging?
    Because I wanted a place where I could write down my thoughts! And I wanted to share my opinions on products and other things. I’m really happy that I did because I have met so many wonderful people.
  4. Tell us one thing that is unique about you.
    I have a rare skin disease called Diffuse Systemic Sclerosis, that’s kinda unique, right?
  5. Wheres your favorite place to go?
    My favorite place to go is England.. Or Scotland.. I guess the UK as a whole! The nature is wonderful, it’s fairly cheap, the beer is good and they have so much allergy friendly food.

My questions for my nominees:

  1. If you had to choose just one make up product to wear for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
  2. What would you say is your main goal for this year?
  3. If you could go back in time to change one thing, what would it be?
  4. Where do you see yourself in ten years?
  5. What is your favorite thing to blog about?

My nominees:

( I guess it was supposed to be just 5 to keep the theme going, woops. Also, you don’t have to do a whole post, you could just reply to the questions in the comments.)
