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 café 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

CENTRAL&CO CAFÉ


Hey there!

Another week, another place to get drinks and food! This café is placed across from Liberty in London and I really like the atmosphere over there. It’s not too pricy either! :-) 


Lots of love,Laurie

STUFF YOUR MOUTH CHALLENGE

Hey lovelies! 

As I combined two days during my daily vlog adventure, I wanted to fill up the little gap with a challenge or tag video. Tahnee and I really liked Zoella's "Stuff Your Mouth" video, so we thought we'd give it a shot! Beware: it's disgusting. ;-) 
Lots of love, 
Laurie

YUMCHAA TEA HOUSE

Hey there!

I went to Yumchaa tea house and I just had to share some pictures with all of you! It’s a really nice place to go for tea and cake. I can definitely recommend  the Chocolate Velvet Cake and the Caramel Sweetheart tea! 




Lots of love,
Laurie

UPDATE || Trouble Connecting

Hey hey! How are you doing? I’m recovering from a bad cold but other than that I’m perfectly fine. :-)

I wanted to give you guys a little update. The internet in my flat in London is terrible. We have to use a dongle, but that dongle often looses service. I am able to upload my vlogs every day, but that often takes the entire day. Getting on the blogger website is a nightmare, but today I managed to do so. I will plan a few posts right now, but keep in mind that I might not be able to post very often. However, if you do want to see what I’m up to, I highly suggest you either like my Facebook Page, follow me on Twitter or subscribe to my YouTube channel (all the links can be found on the right side of this page à).

My plan is to pre-write posts in word and when I’m able to get onto the Blogger site, schedule them so you will have something every week or so. Sundays will be posts that share my vlogs, Wednesdays will probably be food related and on Saturdays I hope to be able to post something beauty or fashion related.

Hope to see you soon! If you have any requests, please leave them in the comments. ;-)

Lots of love,Laurie

QUICK UPDATE: EXAMS

Hey lovelies!

Quick update today: I have my exams coming up next week (which means that I have to hand in all my essays and papers today! #SendHelp). This also means that I will have to focus on school for two more weeks… I am afraid that I will not be able to really post anything for the time being, but after my exams I am fully yours! ;-)

Hope you understand <3

Lots of love,
Laurie

YOUNG AND PROBABLY STUPID

Cheers to the freakin’ weekend, I’ll drink to that. Don’t let the bastards get you down, turn it around with another round. Yep. Totally quoted Rihanna there. ;-)

Since last year I’ve learned so much about letting things go and being chill with things. Now that I’m twenty, I think it’s important to not waste my time worrying about nothing (and yes, of course I still over-think a little now and then – it’s in my nature). I want to make this year about growing even more; becoming an independent young lady who can take on the world all by herself.

I used to be this scared little girl who would freak out in new situations. I like to be in control of things, so new situations were scaring the hell out of me. Being so busy with school and trying to have a social life in the meantime made me realise that it’s okay to live one day at a time.

NEVER WANT TO LEAVE THIS BED

Today I just want to stay in bed all day and do absolutely nothing. Spoiler: Not gonna happen. But a girl can dream right?

I’M MOVING TO LONDON!!

If you have been reading this blog for longer than a week you may or may not have heard me say this a couple of times, but today is the day I’m addressing it in a special post. I thought it would be useful to write a separate blog posts about why I’m moving and what I’m going to be doing in London. To go along with this post I have made a video, so If you’re lazy (or if you just prefer someone talking to you) then click on the video below!

PINK NAILS || LIVING LIFE ON THE EDGE

Hey lovelies!

It’s officially spring! And I’m celebrating by painting my nails with my MAC Saint Germain nail varnish. It’s so bright and summery. Oh and girly might I add. It usually makes my skin look a tad more tanned than it would normally look. Hooray!

Currently I’m thinking about which nail varnishes to take with me on my two month trip to London (more on that in Friday’s post, so be sure to check this bloggie around 10 AM then). This will probably one of them. If you would like to see which varnishes I’m taking with me to London let me know in the comments! :-)

WORKOUT HAUL

Hey people of the internet!
I bought a few bits and pieces to workout in and I thought I’d film a little haul video for you. :-) I am quite rubbish at doing haul post and videos, but I’m starting small haha so hopefully I will get better in time.

Hope you like it!

WANDERLUST

All of a sudden I have this anxious feeling of being stuck in one place. I love travelling and whenever I feel a bit down, I would love to just pack my bags and leave. Not that I’m running away or anything, but whenever I travel I just feel so much at peace. Even though travelling can be quite stressful at times, it calms me down in some weird way.

Being on a plane can cause a panic attack in some of us. To me it’s like going on a roller-coaster (okay, just having said that, I realised that going on roller-coasters might freak you out as well haha. Let’s just say it’s very, VERY exciting to me).

HAPPY BLOG BIRTHDAY

Good morning lovelies! Exactly two years ago I decided to start www.laurierobyn.com and it is still alive! HOORAY! I’m always free on Thursdays but I’m not going to do much else than homework today I'm afraid (sad student life). Today is a good day though!

Hope you’re having a good day too!

Lots of love,
Laurie

I DONATED MY HAIR

Hey there lovely faces!

I have donated my hair and I wanted to make a blog post on it to talk about it a little bit more. I had been growing out my hair for a couple of years and last year I decided that I wanted to donate my blonde locks. I get a lot of questions like “Don’t you regret cutting off your hair?” the answer is no.

I feel that it is important to do something good in this world, even if it’s just something small. I thought about what I could do and I choose to cut off my hair so that someone who isn’t as fortunate as I am can have a nice wig (for free, might I add). My hair will grow and besides that, I kind of like the change.

BE YOURSELF

Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.

This quote made me think about blogging, or just life in general really. I started out this blog almost two years ago. More as an experiment and just to write about things I liked (mostly makeup at the time). As I told you in my first blog post: I am a quitter. But here I am, still trying to make this blog work. No, wait. It is working.

That’s the whole thing. Sometimes I want to be better, good is never good enough and it is a really bad personality trait. I need to remind myself that just being myself is good enough and that it doesn’t need to be perfect. Nothing is perfect.

FEELING RESTLESS

I’m not trying to say the same thing over and over again… but as I’m moving to London in 8 weeks, I keep feeling more and more restless. A lot of school projects need to be finished by the end of this period and the moving excitement is creeping up on me.  

I feel like I need to get things done. Finish essays and papers, organise my closet, catch up with friends, get a haircut. When I’m watching TV in the evening, I feel like I’m wasting my time. When I’m trying to fall asleep, I can’t (because hey, better write that packing list early right?). Is this how you feel when you’re nesting?

MONDAY'S THOUGHTS

So about a year ago I made these posts called “Monday’s Thoughts” and I wrote about anything that came to mind. It’s something personal, things that are going on in my life. Little snippets. I kind of want to get back to doing those posts. I want to blog more spontaneously.

FOR YOUR MONDAY MORNING, MID-FEBRUARY BLUES:


Hi there loves! Even if it isn't Monday today, I know Mondays can be dreadful. However, I hope you can get through the upcoming ones with a little help from these misters. :-)

I know this song is probably already labelled “pre-historic” by some of you, but it makes me happy every time I listen to it. Besides that it makes me happy, it makes me want to move… I even learned the dance moves to it. (If you want to dance along with me: scroll down to see a video that breaks down the choreography in simple steps.)

CHUBBY BUNNY CHALLENGE


Hey there lovelies. This one doesn’t need much explaining I guess. Tahnee and I filmed another video (did you miss the first one? Click here!) and we chose to do the chubby bunny challenge! Let me just say you haven't seen me this attractive before, I hope you can handle it haha. Have fun watching!

PERSONAL || UPDATE

Hey loves!

I just wanted to update you on something. :-) Last week I passed my assessment at my internship – Hooray! Next week will be my last week of teaching at the school and then I will have to go back to school again myself. Kind of have mixed feelings about it though…

HAUL | MANGO ACCESSORIES

Hey loves! When reading a blog posts from one of the Dutch bloggers I follow on bloglovin’, I saw this post about some Mango accessories. I was on the hunt for some dainty necklaces and I found a few at the sale section on the Mango website. I also fell in love with a pair of earrings and bought some other bits and bobs. I think it will be delivered tomorrow and I’m so excited.

PERSONAL | STYES: EXPERIENCES & TIPS


Somewhere a long, long time ago in laurierobyn.com history (read: two years ago), I had a chalazion which I had surgically removed. I never really updated you all on how I was getting on after that. So that's what I'm doing today!

GRWM | NYE MAKEUP LOOK

Hey lovelies! So… Al the festivities are over and done but since I’ve been ill a few days I didn’t have time to pre-record this video (so that it could go up before NYE as I’d originally planned). However, I did record my makeup whilst getting ready for NYE and wanted to show it.

★ HAPPY NEW YEAR ★

Dear you,

2015 has officially started. I’m so excited for this year and I hope you are too. 365 blank pages. You have no idea what’s going to happen in those chapters of your life. Even if you have a slight idea, everything can change in the blink of an eye. Remember that. Don’t stress about things so far away or so far in the past. Most of all: be happy and be kind.

Happy New Year lovelies!

Lots of love,
Laurie
