I made cookies! :)

Life – it has recently taken over in the kind of way that leaves you longing for your bed where you could curl up and watch Will and Grace reruns. Things have been all over the place lately, both good and bad, and it was hard to find time to sit down and type…

For example, my little cuddly Bala had to be operated on last Thursday. She wasn’t feeling well after one of our walks and after a trip to the vet, I had realised she had eaten a lot of wood.. not good.

IMG_1405Thankfully she is doing a lot better.

With her at the hospital, I’ve been spending a lot of time at home with the other munchkin so that she wouldn’t get lonely. It’s weird having only one dog at home and I find myself including her in a lot more of my activities; we watch TV shows together, we eat our meals together and she even sat in the kitchen while I was baking cookies! 🙂

IMG_1400I followed this recipe, not adding the raspberries and using peanut butter, and they turned out super healthy and super yummy!

IMG_1402Another thing keeping me busy were my driving lessons!

IMG_0987..which came to an end yesterday!

I PASSED MY TEST 🙂

And the last thing keeping me away from blogging was trying to figure out what I will be studying this September. I’ve been reading descriptions, checking lecture times and gazing far into my soul to figure out what it is I really want to do… it’s tough work!

Things will hopefully return back to normal soon. I have a lot of plans for the blog and can’t wait to share them with you!

Hope you are having a great Tuesday!

Manicure Monday!

Did you guys survive Valentine’s Day?

IMG_1242

I went out Friday night and noticed a lot of lonely souls drinking their sorrows away while scouting for single significant others. Really depressing guys, really depressing..

IMG_1243

Now I’m a major fan of the day of luuurv and have always enjoyed celebrating it. I used to be that girl who drew pink and red hearts in everyone’s diaries, along with a scribble of “VALENTINE’S DAY” in thick, bold letters. I even brought little chocolate hearts along to school to spread the love and joy. Everyone knew me as the love-crazed one, the one who believes in fairytales and Prince Charming – I still do, even when I’m not technically in love…

The power of love is strong and I don’t believe in moping around because I’m single. Love can so easily be translated on to friendships and family, or even on to your pets or a passion for a hobby that you don’t need to focus in on a missing “better half”. It’s a hard adjustment, but remembering to concentrate on all the things and people that make you happy instead of things that might be missing on this commercial holiday really can make up for the lack of materialistic surprise presents of red roses or chocolate.. or Tiffany Blue Boxes.. that you could all technically buy yourself too if that would make you happy..

If you do however need a quick Valentine’s Day blues pick-me-up, but don’t want to spend your money on things you either consume immediately or that wilt away quickly – and makes less of a dent in your budget – I always find nail polish to be quite enchanting.

IMG_1378Especially if it is dubbed Tiffany Blue 😉

IMG_1372As you may have noticed from some of my past manicure posts, I am an absolute fan of OPI’s liquid sand. This was another one of their crowd-pleasers.

IMG_1371A beautiful baby blue. Sparkly, appealing and attention-attracting.. in other words it is PERFECT.

IMG_1377Officially wowed. Again 😉

IMG_1373Now that’s what I call an amazing Valentine’s Day Present 😀 From me, to me 😉

Metallic Manicure Monday!

IMG_1329Metallic colours; you either like them or you don’t.

IMG_1334I like metallic effects when I’m out and about and don’t really mind if it matches my outfit. I also enjoy metallic colours more during the winter months because they glimmer and shine when just a speck of light hits them and really brighten up a dreary day. This time I felt a little too old for the whole metallic thing…

IMG_1328I was suddenly very aware of the fact that my nails were bright purple and would shine no matter how you held them to the light. It was a very pretty colour, but left me feeling too self-conscious to really pull it off. I ended up removing it within the week (and replacing it with a similarly “out-there” colour 😉 I never learn…)

IMG_1327Nevertheless, I’m still very impressed with Nails Inc.’s quality of polish. They have yet to disappoint! 🙂

Have a great Monday!

Thinking Out Loud Thursday

Thinking-Out-Loud

1. I visited my old hiphop crew last Thursday with one of my dancer friends and have been convinced to join the class tonight again.

IMG_1351

We brought along a cake as a treat. It’s part of the tradition 🙂

2. I am so not a juice person.

IMG_1315I drank this beetroot, ginger, carrot, orange, apple juice last week and just wasn’t feeling it. Definitely more the smoothie type!

3. I ate sushi twice this week, both times with a best friend 🙂

IMG_1369

IMG_1360

Goofing off is more than allowed when surrounded by people who love you no matter what…

IMG_1359IMG_1361

IMG_1362

4. Let me introduce you to baby me, in love with my own feet:

IMG_1367..and with granny

IMG_13685. Speaking of grandparents, my Oma and Opa – who visited last week – just sent us these pictures..

IMG_1352I guess I get the “goofy” genes from my grandfather 🙂 Isn’t it scary how similar my smile is to my father’s?

6. This is my failed attempt at getting my dogs to help me recreate the famous “dog beard”

IMG_1356

IMG_1357

Here is the online link to people who were able to pull it off! 🙂

I felt nearly as frazzled as this little guy that I couldn’t pull it off!

IMG_1353

7. Have you ever taken a “buzz feed” quiz? Well I just took one that would tell you what “emoji emoticon” you were.. I couldn’t believe the accuracy!

IMG_1370

Also, some of the questions are quite funny. One was: what do you think about LOVE, and among the answers you could select one of these options…

IMG_1364

8. As always, I need to highlight doggy cuteness in these posts!

IMG_1350

IMG_1365

Puppy Love ❤

9. I’m a pinterest-a-holic. And it doesn’t stop there: I also save the best images…These four are among my favourites this week:

IMG_1358

IMG_1349

IMG_1363

IMG_1366They’re all so true it hurts!

10. I always look forward to Thursdays! This post is so much fun to write and I love discovering new blogs through the link-ups!

Manicure Monday: Make Him Mine

I lusted after this nail polish from the first moment I first laid eyes on it.

IMG_1214Like most of my favourite OPI polishes, it is liquid sand.

IMG_1215

Isn’t it beautiful?

IMG_1212This is definitely my favourite polish out of the Mariah Carey collection. It’s a delicious rosy-coppery shade, really sparkles and attracts a lot of attention.

IMG_1216

The colour seems to catch everyone’s eye!

Therapy for the Conceal-a-Holic

  • I have fallen hard for these shoes. They are so comfy, I feel like I’m walking on clouds. They’re my little inuit shoes 😀
  • La Vie est Belle and La petite Robe Noire are my two new favourite fragrances. I’m also considering the purchase of Flowerbomb…. 😉
  • I can’t seem to get enough of this songIMG_1319
  • Also, Animal puns.. they’re my new favourite thing!IMG_1318
  • Anyone feel like baking me cookies? These look really good…please?
  • I have a new favourite author. Do you know her?  I want to be her. Seriously! I own all her books and have devoured them in the shortest time ever!
  • Speaking of books.. I wish my life were like Angela Clark’s. I mean.. I don’t necessarily want to catch my boyfriend cheating and break my best friend’s new husband’s hand with a Louboutin..but the rest – I want the rest. Is that too much to ask?
  • I NEED this eyeliner.. but really though. I seem to go through eyeliners so much more lately..It’s my new thing!

Have a great Saturday!
