Hello again everyone!

With already two weeks into January, I wanted to show you some pictures we took on New Year’s Eve and some thoughts for 2017 I wanted to write down. Keep scrolling if you’re interested ;)

As you may have noticed, I posted very irregularly because of my work schedule and on my days off I spend most of the time catching up on sleep or doing any chores and errands I need to do for my house. A lot of times I don’t get to taking some new pictures for a few months because I’m always in a hurry and I don’t just want to upload a new post without actual good content or good pictures. Still, I want to try to post more often and write more of my thoughts and other stuff going on in my life – not only makeup related stuff. I’m not sure how it will turn out but I think I’ll just go with the flow – for once :)

I spent Christmas and New Year’s at my mom’s together with my sister and the pictures we took are from the New Year’s Eve party we had. I have to say, we had a BLAST! It was definitely one of the best nights I ever had, I danced the night away and have only the fondest memories for that night. It was definitely different than I expected but when I think back, the memories can only make me smile.

That has to be a good way to start the new year, right??

I have to admit, it was also an emotional night. I have a tendency to reflect back on the last year or anything that comes to my mind and as I was watching the fireworks at midnight, I couldn’t help but think about everything that has changed in the past few years since I last spent New Year’s with my family. Change is not always a bad thing but sometimes it just takes so freaking long to get used to the new version of “ordinary”.

For 2017, I want to spend more time taking care of myself – my thoughts, my feelings, my time, my loved ones and my energy. I am very fortunate to love my job but sometimes I get so caught up in the day to day life that weeks and months pass me by and I feel kind of stuck in a place where I don’t actively DO anything in my life other than just live it. It has to be another way so I’ll keep looking for a way to balance it out more evenly so that I find time to do everything I want to do :)

So here is my personal checklist for 2017:

I want to spend more time and seize the time with the ones that I love.

I want to learn to speak my mind and say what’s in my heart.

I want to learn to enjoy moments without overthinking. ALL THE TIME.

I want to learn to not dwell on things I can not change and I have to take as a given. My effort and thoughts need to go into more positive things.

I need to find more time for being good to myself. ♥

I am very grateful for the past year – being a very difficult one overall – for teaching me a lot more about myself, for allowing me to grow and learn from others and for the hopes and dreams I have for the near future.

I am grateful for every person that makes me laugh, for making my life full of joy and for everyone that helps me overcome my millions of thoughts, everyday. I don’t say it a lot – so thank YOU – you all know who you are! ♥

Please share your thoughts, your dreams, your resolutions for the near future with me. Tell me how you like reading more personal stuff from me to see how we can go from here :) I’d love to hear from you!

And to see what I’m up to – follow me on my Instagram where I am more active, that’s for sure ;)
