Mondays have a bad reputation, I bet half of the people who are reading this, hate Mondays. The weekend is over, work starts again and many people tend to blame Mondays for their bad mood. But I like to see it differently. Mondays can be great too. Every week you have the chance of a new beginning, new inspiration and ideas. I was thinking about my future blog posts and for today I planned to dig through my bathroom garbage, collect all the empty flasks and jars and write an article about beauty products I always run out of and rebuy all the time. I selected five products that I really like and would recommend.
In the year 2000 I was 16 years old and life sucked. Because I failed maths, I had to repeat a year with a bunch of students I only knew by sight and it was extremely hard for me to get to know new people and habits. I cried for three month until Christmas until I got used to the new situation. Who knew that I would meet my dearest friends in that class and that 17 years after this, my whole circle of friends, would be based on those new friendships. It turns out that I was wrong about a lot of stuff and that things happened differently as I imagined. I made a list of things I would tell my 16-year-old self if I could.
Last Thursday I started my 14 days of detox. I wanted to do it because my husband went on a bike tour through Denmark, still weird to call him “my husband” even after two years of marriage, I never really got used to it, and I assumed he would drop some weight. So I wanted to drop weight too and also because my tummy is way too fat and I don’t like it.
The detox basically consists in:
When I first installed Instagram on my phone the app was quite different form what it has become. I think it was 6 years ago and at that time everybody was changing the signature square picture by applying filters called Juno, Reyes, Valencia and Willow. I liked that feature because I thought it mae my photos look professional.
Last week on thursday I attended a blogger event at Le Zai organized by the lovely Elodie Schmitt who works for the Zheng restaurants (Le Zai & Ginko Sushi) in Strassen. It was a good distraction from last week which was chaotic and stressful because of personal issues. I had the chance to meet blogger colleagues I knew virtually but not in real life and I mus say that they were easy going, terre à terre, not like some other bloggers I know.
I’ve always wanted to test spray tanning since years and I never tried it because it was too expensive or because I didn’t find a good studio near to the area where I lived. Spray tan are words I also googled a lot or watched videos on YouTube to see how it works but somehow the reviews were always saying things like the tan is not even or the product has a funny smell.
According to the title of my blog post you may think that I’m about to tell you what happened the night I had sex for the first time, but I won’t. That night wasn’t the night I became an adult. I was probably older than the average but still not an adult. I am about to write down what happend and how I felt when my father suddenly died overnight.
