Lately #2

Breakfast at Tiffanys, big comfy sweaters & healthy sweets.
sounds good doesn't it?

My favorite Audrey Hepburn film, along with
Roman Holiday. I can watch Breakfast at Tiffany's 
over and over again. I always watch something on netflix
before I fall asleep and this is the movie I watched last week.
It's so sweet and funny and Audrey Hepburn looks so pretty!

Yup, it has been reeeal cold lately, so I've been
living in my big comfy sweater. The best feeling
in the world is when you come home from school, take off
your uncomfortable clothes and get in your sweats, aaaaah!
I love making healthy sweets, it's so easy!
This is just bunch of nuts, dates and peanut butter.
Soooo goood

That's it, hope you liked this post :)

How to Stay Motivated to Exercise

It's so important to exercise and it's a big part of
being healthy but it's also really important that you enjoy it.
I used to take dance classes but I decided to quit two years ago,
instead I bought a gym membership card. When I didn't feel like
going to dance class, I still had to go because otherwise I would have
missed out of the dance routine. But when you have a gym membership card
you can go whenever you want to and let's face it, that could lead to you never
going to the gym. That's why I'm giving you 5 tips on how you can stay
motivated to go to the gym and exercise!

Set a Goal
Set a goal for yourself and reward
yourself when you reach that goal! Remember
to make your goals realistic and not to drastic, take
one step at a time. If you want for example to be 
able to run 10 kilometers, start by setting yourself
smaller goals that will lead to that big goal.

Change things up a bit
Don't always do the same exercises, you will
get bored after a while and eventually give up.
You can for example do cardio two days a week
and lift weights one day a week, whatever works for you.

I can't exercise without my music, it makes
it ten times more fun to exercise with music.
Listen to upbeat music, music that makes you 
want to move! Just remember to change up
your playlist once in a while. My current favorite
 songs to workout are:
American Boy - Estelle & Kanye
Flawless Remix - Beyoncé & Nicki Minaj
Euphoria - Loreen
Womanizer - Britney Spears

Eat right & Healthy
It makes so much difference if you eat right 
before and after gym and also a great tip is to 
never go to the gym when you are hungry or right
after you've eaten. It's said to be good for you to
eat a banana or porridge before you exercise.

Take Days Off
Don't try to go to the gym or exercise everyday you don't
want to overtrain. It is really important to let your body rest
 and recharge your batteries. Do something that you love on
your rest days, watch your favorite movie, eat ice-cream, read
a book, anything! Not only are the rest days important for your
physical health but also your mental health.

January Favorties

There are sooo many new things that I've been loving this January that it
was almost impossible to choose. Somehow I managed to stick to only five
products and I have used them almost everyday this month.
The Naked 2 Palette
Let me tell yah, after I got this palette I've used almost
nothing else on my eyes. The colors are so beautiful and they
all go so well together. They are also beautifully pigmented and
if you are wearing a good eye primer, your eyeshadow will stay on
all day or all night.
Naked Flushed in Strip
It didn't take a long time for me to buy the Naked flushed after I got
the Naked 2 palette. It's a great palette containing a bronzer, highlighter 
and blush. The colors are beautiful and pigmented, plus it's really handy
when you are travelling or on the go and you can just take the palette instead
of taking a bunch of products. The only thing I don't like about the palette is
that I think that the highlighter could be better. It's good but not good enough for
urban decay and I think the Mary-Lou Manizer by the balm is so much better.
Benefit they're Real Mascara
I only have the miniature version of this mascara but
oh my god! This is way far the best mascara I've ever
tried. I can't believe I waited this long to try it. It makes your
lashes look so  long and thick and my own mother asked 
me if I was wearing fake eyelashes when I was wearing this mascara!
If that doesn't convince you to try this mascara, I don't know what will.
The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Night Cream
This moisturizer is really good if you have dry
skin. My skin has been really dry lately so I've also
been using this in the mornings before I do my makeup.
It's also really good for sensitive skin and it smells nicely.
The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil
After Amelia Liana featured this cleansing oil in her 2014
favorites video, I had to have it. It removes all of your makeup so easily 
and it even works on waterproof makeup. It leaves your skin really
soft and moisturized. If you are looking for a good makeup remover, you'll
have to try this one.

Thanks for reading
