IN A RUT

So I’ve been home from Scotland for just over three weeks now and I’ve been meaning to film an updates video to put up on theYouTubes. I’ve been finding it hard to find the motivation to even put clothes on. It’s cold and miserable outside, I need to do loads of school work, I don’t have to go back to school yet and I’d like to avoid most carnaval activities. I’ve been always on the lazy side of the girl-spectrum when it comes to putting on makeup and all, but I’ve never really been this extreme haha.

On that note: I made a resolution. I probably won’t stick to it (as always happens with resolutions, because, why put off what can start right now?). However, if I start my new adventure after getting my bachelor’s degree this summer, I’d like to put a bit more effort into my look makeup and hair wise. Here. I’ve said it. On the internet. Does that help? The answer is: no, probably not. But I’ll try! ;-)

Anyhow, I hope you’ve all had an amazing week and I wish you all an awesome weekend!

Lots of love,

Laurie

WANTING TO BE A BLANKET BURRITO


Here I am, realising this semester is going to be slightly harder than I anticipated it to be… I’m currently in my last year of my bachelor’s degree and will start my last semester in about two weeks. This last semester will involve me teaching three days a week, going to school one day a week, working one or two days a week, and working on my dissertation and other assignments every spare moment.

All in all I’ve always wanted to keep this blog and my YouTube channel up on the side, but I’ve been home from Scotland for almost three weeks now and work is piling up. I think I’m ahead schoolwork-wise, but it still feels I’m behind.

All I want to do is go to bed and roll myself in a blanket burrito until I got a degree… I now completely understand everyone’s hate for writing a dissertation and the stressful last semester, but if they can do it, I can do this too.

Lots of love,

Laurie

LONG TIME, NO SEE


Oh hi there… I AM ALIVE!! Looking back at when I last posted on this blog I can only think “Laurie… How could you?” When I started this blog I already warned you in my first post that I am lazy and “quit” things just because it becomes too time-consuming. I’m going to go into a little bit of a different direction, and I’m not expecting many of you to follow. I’ve been thinking loads about what direction I want my YouTube channel to go into and I’ve come to the conclusion that both my YouTube channel and my blog are just a place where I’d like you to come along on my journey throughout life.

This means that this blog will become a “life blog”, a diary if you will, a place where I can share what’s on my mind and a place where I can share anything that I like. Of course I’m still a beauty enthusiast, so there will still be the occasional beauty post or video. I might revamp my blog layout a little too, but I’m not too sure about that yet.

I’m terribly sorry about not spending that much time with you in 2015, but I hope that by tweaking the direction slightly I will be more inspired to write. :-)

Much love,

Laurie

SUNDAY ROAST AND PIMS


Being in London means I could not possibly miss out on Sunday Roast! I’d never had Sunday Roast before, so I went to the local pub with Tamara and Tahnee to try it. Personally, it’s not my favourite… I love food in general, but I’d rather have fish and chips instead haha. The next day we went to a little cafĂ© in Camden and we ordered some Pims. It’s so good! It has some alcohol in though, so if you’re under eighteen you’ll have to miss out on that unfortunately. ;-)



Lots of love,
Laurie
