A little bit of a different post today. Lately, I’ve been reading lots and lots of lifestyle posts, and being a little bit inspired by all of the lovely girls I’ve been online stalking, I thought I should write a more personal blog post, just to share a little bit of my life on this small piece of the interwebz that I’m allowed to call mine.
001. Last Monday, we celebrated my stepdad’s birthday. My mom cooked us a wonderful roast dinner which we ate on the lovely round table in our living room- a place we only use on special occasions. The food was absolutely lovely- pork with rosemary and a mystery sauce (my mom doesn’t want to tell me what’s in it), cauliflower, salad and pommes duchesses, with pudding for dessert. Yesterday, we celebrated again in a restaurant. We ate steak with mushroom sauce and frites, accompanied by a glass of rose wine and again, pudding with strawberries on top for dessert. Safe to say that my inner foodie feels satisfied after a week filled with lovely eats. I get hungry even thinking about all of the delicious food I ate this week.
002. I’m starting a beautician crash course this Wednesday, and it’s safe to say that my social anxiety doesn’t approve. After quitting university this January (I was studying Psychology which, after long consideration, prove to be nothing for me), I am now 99.99% sure that Journalism is where’s my heart at, so I’m starting a Journalism course in September. For now, I need to find something to fill my time with (except for work) and since I’ve been obsessed with beauty for quite a few years, I thought this would be a good choice. I’m really nervous though; I’m not so good at meeting new people and the thought of having to go there and find my way around the building on my own terrifies me beyond belief. I guess I just have to suck it up and pretend to be confident etc., but I still get nauseous even thinking about it. Please tell me I’m not the only one?! (Feels good to be able to write about it on my blog though!).
003. After putting it off for a few weeks, I’ve finally managed to start reading Lolita again. I’m now 100 pages in, and I absolutely adore the way it’s written. It’s quite hard to read and you have to be concentrated all of the time to understand Nabokov’s puns, but that’s what I love about it and I think that Lolita is on it’s way to become my no. 1 book. As I said in this post, I absolutely adore reading and writing, but I always put it off for some reason (not enough time, too tired etc.) but if I do manage to read something, I always enjoy it so much. I’m promising myself to read at least 10 pages a day now.
004. Lastly, I would like to mention a few ladies whose blogs I’ve absolutely been adoring lately. First, there’s the lovely Emily. Her lifestyle blog is my absolute favourite. She has a very humoristic and no-nonsense outlook on blogging, which is why I love her so much. Her beautiful photos and way of writing always draw me in (along with the little sneak peek she gives into her life!). Another blog I’ve been absolutely loving lately is Charlotte’s. I adore her way of writing and you should just check her out, because her blog is absolutely amazing.
