Work.Working.Worked

What a week it has been ! Feels like everyday I had something going on and was going from one place to another. And now that it's finally the weekend and normally you would take that time to relax and just take easy but not this girl, I have to work. Luckily today it's was just an hour, compared to 9 hours on Friday and 6 hours on Saturday.


Quickly snapped a couple of pictures before heading to work today. The pants (Nike's) are new along with the mint green training jacket (Reebok) and the pink jacket (Everest). I've been looking for a new pair of training pants so these new Nike's are really good. They sit perfectly, because sometimes I have a hard time finding ones that do, due to my long legs, so happy that these sit just right. 

Crazy that it's the last day of January already. Happy I've been able to be without alcohol the whole month, knew at the beginning it wouldn't be hard but still, sticking to my new years resolution. 

 Time to turn on the TV because American Idol is on here! Have a good rest of your Sunday.

Growing Older

Being an adult isn't nearly as fun as I thought it would be when I was younger. I remember thinking that I can't wait till I get to make my own decisions in life and right now I would do anything for anyone else to do them for me. I guess what I need right now in life is some kind of routine, because not being in school has left me a lot of spare time to go crazy. I do have days I work but it's not the same. But today I took a step towards my future, or two depends how you look at it. I signed a another work deal so I'll be working a little bit more which is nice and I also applied for a school. So now I need to start studying and hopefully do good in the exams in April. I will also apply for another school but that search won't be until later this spring.



I did have some extra time today on my hands before my meeting so I decided to try something new with my hair. I saw this on Pinterest and wanted to try it. So what I did was that I  twirled pieces of my hair really tight and then went over with my straightener. Then I let my hair cool before slowly brushing trough with my fingers. 

Really happy with how it turned out, definitely will do it again sometime. Like natural looking hair, and this has that beach wavy kind of look. But now I'm off since I'm still planing hitting a few shops before they close ! I'll let you know if I find anything ;)

Traveling March

I'm starting to get really excited for March ! A lot of traveling is happening in that month, making it the one month I'm looking forward the most right now.
The first weekend of March me and one of my oldest friends are making a girls weekend trip to London ! So excited for that! It's been many years since I was there last time and I absolutely love London so I'm very excited ! Plus it's going to be the first trip we make together just the two of us, making it even more exciting !

WeHeartIt


My other trip will be towards the end of the month when I'll be going to Brazil to spend a couple of weeks with my dad and stepmom! Super excited about that as well! It's been quite awhile since I was last time in Brazil so it's nice to go back, plus it's summer there so it will be nice and warm compared to the cold and snowy weather we have here !

WeHeartIt



Still a lot of preparations needs to be done for both trips but I've already took care of the most important factor, work. So now I can move to the smaller things that need to be taken care of before hitting the skies. But talking about work I better get my stuff ready and head out soon !
 Have a relaxing Sunday everyone !

New in

Took me longer to write this post than anticipated. I've been so busy with everything else that I never really had the time to finish it. Just got back from the dentist so I thought I'll finish it now before I need to go out and shovel some snow. Mother nature you can stop any time now! 
 At times I find a lot of things from sales and sometimes I don't find anything. I try to be smart with what I buy and what I don't buy. Before I would buy stuff just because it's cheap but now that my closet is filling up I can't really do that anymore.


A jacket a bought on a day trip to Tallinn. Something I've been looking for but never really found one that fits well and is a reasonable prize. So when I saw this in Stradivarius I bought it immediately. Now I just need to wait for the weather to warm up !




 

Also found some dresses from Mango on sale. Usually I don't find anything from there but on sale.
I've been looking for a black dress for a long time. It's one of those must haves in your closet along with a pair of jeans, or a white t-shirt.  




This one I already found before it was on sale but thought it was too expensive at the time and now it was 70% of so of course I bought it. It's made of silk, can't wait for summer to wear it. Love the pattern on it, one of the reasons I fell in love with it.  



Have a good Monday ! 

How's everyones New Years resolutions going ? I'm still on track! We can do it !

Pray it won't fade away

Happy Sunday folks ! The day that's meant to stay in bed watching movies and episodes of your favourite TV-shows. That's exactly what I've been doing the whole day, what I mostly do every Sunday.
Sunday is also music and chill day. Here's just one of the many songs I'm obsessed with right now. Thanks to Grey's Anatomy for playing it during one of their episodes. My friend showed this to me already a couple of months ago but forgot about it before hearing it again during the episode.




Have a good starting week !

Family by heart, not blood

Been busy going everywhere this past few days! My Brazilian family has been visiting and my dad and I have been showing them around. It's always fun to show people places they never seen before and also seeing things from a different point of view. Sadly tomorrow is their last day and saying goodbye will be hard. Really blessed to have been able to spend time with them, been too long since I last saw them.



The pictures are from Fiskars, a town we visited earlier in the week. Love that place, it's such a cute small town.

It's been freezing cold here these past few days. Would have loved to just stay inside covered in blankets but I've been up and going , both outside and inside. Done some shopping since all the stores have sales but not a whole lot. A lot of the same stuff that I don't really care for, but did find some good things I'll do a separate post about !

New Years Resolution

Happy New Year 2016 everyone ! Wishing everyone had a great start to this new year, I for sure had a great night with my friends. As a new year begins I reflect on my year before and think what I would do different this year. So I made some New Years resolutions but it's not the cliché I'm going to start working out or I'm going to eat healthier this year. There's nothing wrong with those but you don't need a new year for you to start working out or eating healthier. Therefore my resolutions are to be more appreciated of what I have and to learn more about myself.


My step-mom sent me this today and this is something I want to do this year. To make sure I appreciate everything that happens, good or bad. After all there's a reason for everything. Can't wait until next New Years to read all the notes !

Something I already tried to do last year but only did for a couple of months is to be without something every month. It might be a type of food or something you drink or pretty much anything.  Just trying to see how you can live without it and how it affects you. This first month, January, I'm going to be without alcohol. Not that it's going to be hard for me but just something to kick of the year. This year I hope I can make it trough the whole year and not just couple of months like last time. Fingers crossed !
