Hi loves, how are you doing? I hope your January is going well so far! School started for me again and I am so happy, because my classmates are super fun. It makes me happy to go to school again, and I think that is really important. This month I started to keep up with a bullet journal for the first time. It made me think about myself, myself growth and how I want everything to work out this year. So I wrote down my fears, goals, favorite songs. Everything that inspired me. Today I wanted to share a few of these things with you. Maybe you wrote down your personal goals also already? Writing down what I want to achieve opened my eyes. In the future of this year, it will keep me motivated. My bullet journal is always in my bag because if I think about something or when I have a creative idea I can write it down immediately.

Self – Growth

On top of the list stay’s: Self growth. Last year, I would say ‘yes’ to everyone, if they asked me to do something. I am not going to be that person anymore. I want to became stronger at this. Because I can’t do anything. Focusing on myself and my future (school) is way more important. My goals are separated into different topics, to give it a clean overview. Every topic has his own subjects.

Fitness 

Last year I focused a lot on weights and getting stronger. This year I want to add some more cardio to get leaner. I am going 5 times in the week to the gym now, mostly in the morning. I decided to do more reps, then adding weights. I don’t want to get to ‘big’, if you know what I mean. Seeing a lot of skinny girls on Instagram daily doesn’t make it easier. remember why you started. I started my workouts because I love it and I am having so much fun in the gym most of the time. That is my motivation for 2018, having fun in what I am doing. Not only to get leaner or to reach my goal: also to enjoy my time doing it!

Nutrition

Something that go’s along with a healthy lifestyle, body and mindset: Nutrition. What do you eat? And why? In 2017 I was eating healthy most of the time. I had a good breakfast, lunch and dinner. The only thing I did a lot was: snacking…. And that guys, is screwing your whole diet. I didn’t lose fat, the only thing I got was stronger. I was basically bulking all the time ( if you are into fitness you know what I mean, if you are not: it means you are taking more calories to grow your muscles then your body needs). Nutrition and your work out routine should be in balance, to keep yourself strong and active. This year I am going to give my body what it needs. Enough sleep, only healthy food and continue with being a vegetarian! (would you guys be interested to read a post about that?)

Creativity 

Creativity is really important to me. Sometimes your head can be full of all the work you have to do. The more work, the less I am creative. So every time, when an idea pops up into my head I immediately write it down. I made a little notebook for myself, to give all my ideas in 2018 a little reminder.

Did you also made some plans for the new year? I am curious what you guys want to achieve! Let me know!

Lots of love,
Esmee

 

 

 

It is almost Christmas and that means not only the most magical time of the year, but also the most stressful one. You work hard to get everything done before the end of the year. The pressure at work is high, it can be so busy! At moments like that it is really important to take some time off. Even if you don’t feel like you having time for it. Me-time for me means: taking a hot bath, together with my favorite music and a roman. In this blogpost I wanted to write something about this subject , because I know how much it can mean to me. When I feel tired, unmotivated or stressed I definitely need an evening off. Below you can find a list with all my tips and plans to give yourself some extra time to relax.

winter

Winter is arriving, and we can’t stop it. November is ending in a few days and there is no holding back. Although December is the month of joy, celebration and family. It is also the month with the darkest and coldest days. Where the sun shows her light only for a few hours. Oh, this sounds depressing already! How are you going to avoid that winter ‘depression’? Years ago I was dealing with this myself, but I found a way to let go of it. Even, these days I am the most inspired now! Today I want to share with you a list of tips to avoid negative thoughts and I will give you some help with getting enough sunshine.

All the positive, will come. In time.

Sundays is the most important day of the week (for me),  it is the perfect day to relax and to get some extra sleep. After a day like this I feel like new. Very often my boyfriend and I are going to watch some series, grab some lunch or we love to spend some time buying all kind of things we don’t actually need.  View Post

It is my birthday today, I turned Twenty- Two! It makes me feel so old, although I am still looking (in my opinion) so young. Last week I took this photo’s together with  Kimberley from The Beauty Blog NL. This outfit is one of my favorites to wear when there is something special to celebrate. The sparkles on the skirt makes you ready to party! Unfortunately I can’t go crazy this weekend, because I have some deadlines and exams coming up next week. Tonight I will be at my parents house, to have a lovely dinner. For now, I want to tell you all about this look.
