in my secret life.

~ This post is not sponsored ~

I don't share a lot about my life on my blog, so since I've recently been loving lifestyle blogs I've decided to do just that and write more about myself and my life, aka get more personal. In this post I'll be telling you all about what's been happening in my life lately, so you're all up to date ;).

This post was inspired by this post, I give full credit to "Little Henry Lee" for coming up with this post.





Let's dive into the soap opera (not really) that is my life, shall we?




FRIENDS.

In terms of friends, not a lot happened, but I did hang out with them a lot more since school's out.
So far we've BBQ'ed together and we've had a sleepover / dance party / bonfire evening which was way too precious and cute. I also went to a party yesterday with my other friends which was fun. We played beerpong with soda and I managed to do pretty okay for a bit.

It's gatherings like that that make me so happy to have such an amazing friend group and fill me with happiness :). I don't get to see my friends too often during the school season, 'cause they're in different classes, have different subjects and are all very busy all the time. So when summer arrives I always try to hang out with everybody.




SCHOOL.

It's summer break y'all! I can't express in words how badly I needed this break lol. I really worked my ass off this year to get good grades and keep everything steady. Especially the last testweek stressed me out so badly, to the point where I was constantly shaking, couldn't sleep and get migraines.

I'm going into my final sixth year after this break, which is such a surreal thing to say. These 5 years have flown by for real. It still feels like I'm some clueless girl in her second year, but I'm almost done already!

I actually didn't notice how much I've changed until a few months ago. My style changed drastically, my face matured a lot (thank God lmao) and my behavior has changed to be a bit mature, but still not mature enough lol.



WORK. 

I recently quit my job over at the Chocolate Company, where I was a dishwasher / server / chocolate girl / sample girl / etc. I really enjoyed it there but I really didn't work often during the spring-summer period (like 3 days a month...) so I decided to quit.

Fortunately I've already found another job at a hotel! I make coffee over at the breakfast and make the drink orders behind the bar :). So far I've not dropped anything yet *knocks on wood* and it's a pretty enjoyable job. My new colleagues are very friendly xd.

I also work over at my school again, now that summer's upon us. In the Netherlands you get your books borrowed to you from the school, so I help with taking them all in again, checking them and putting together the new packs of books. A lot of my friends work here as well so it's always a blast!





SOCIALS.  

Some of my fave influencers as of lately include: gemary, tasha leelyn, catcreature & conan gray. Their channels are all very cozy and warm and comfy, which I love. (Also: shoutout to Diana Chamomile's IG stories, which I watch every day without fail)

In terms of youtube, I just uploaded a new video ! It's 20 minutes long and super chatty. I'm actually obsessed with how it turned out and have a bunch of video ideas to make this summer break so be on the lookout for that!

In terms of Instagram I've been trying to grow my followers lately, which has been slow and steady. I post about 3 times a week, which can be challenging at times, but I'm really liking it so far! Instagram Stories and pics give me a way of communicating with you guys in between blogposts and youtube videos.




OTHERS/RANDOMS.

I've been working on a  ~secret~ project lately, which led me to Paris for a very fun time, so stay tuned for that lol. I can say it involves fashion, but not much more ;0.

As you might've been able to tell by this post I've been obsessed with taking polaroids. Most of these are fake though (thank you Unfold), but you get the idea. I've now got a ton of polaroids from social gatherings that I'm absolutely obsessed with and I've found a way to digitalize them easily (blogpost about that) so that's only made me even more obsessed. They're just such a good way to keep memories in a physical way.



MUSIC

Some of the songs I've been loving lately.

Dance to this // Troye Sivan ft. Ariana Grande
One Kiss // Clavin Harris ft. Dua Lipa
Fight and Fuck // Terror Jr
ILYSB // LANY
Grow // Conan Gray
Strawberries & Cigarettes // Troye Sivan
Champagne // Lia Marie Johnson
Sober // Demi Lovato
Other Side // Conan Gray
New Light // John Mayer
My Last Song // Martin Hall
OTW // Khalid ft. 6LACK & Ty Dolla $ign
Psycho // Post Malone ft. Ty Dolla $ign



And that was it for this post lol. I hope you enjoyed this format and idea, I had so much fun messing around with the layout for this post as you might've been able to tell. 
See ya next week!

  2. Aww I'm so glad you enjoyed my post and that it inspired you to write one of your own! Lifestyle blogs are still some of my absolute favourites to read, and even though I love beauty content too and I read and create a lot of it myself, I still love getting to know the person behind a blog as well and think it's really important, so I love posts like this! :)

    1. Amen to that! I've been trying to be more personal on my blog lately exactly because of that :)
