Bought my coloured pastel pants

Hello to every single one of you out there!
I'm back again. Yes, I've been away again and yes I am sorry. Not that anyone really missed me, right? I mean, most of my readers I see every day. Anyways, I wanted to do a blogpost on my new, coloured jeans. Well, they aren't exactly jeans, they have the fake pockets and stuff. But they're pastelly, bright pink and kind of teel green-ish pastelly thing blabla. Yes that exact colour.
So, I bought them for a really really really small prize (25,- euro's, ssst it's a secret) at a Dutch store called 'Hema'. I know you Dutchies out there really think ; why in heavens name would you buy a pair of jeans over there? Well, I just did. And they fit like they were made for me, which obiously never happens to me. But I just fell in love with them. I didn't really wear them yet, because I didn't figure out what to pair it with yet. But, I'm looking forward like crazy to wear them.
Well, the next thing I wanted to say ; my test week is coming up and I have a lot of difficult and important exams to make and I. MY. HEAD. IS. ALREADY. FULL. RIGHT. NOW.
Yes, that makes it look very dramatic, doesn't it? It's not really that bad, I just am done with all the learning-stuff. Don't you guys have that feeling too sometime? That you just want to take a suitcase and just take off to some random, warm and sunny island just to relax and think about nothing but how to make yourself a better person? I have that feeling a lot lately. Maybe I just need some rest. Like, holiday-rest. Like in ; I just need a break people, please understand this hopeless, energyless creature.
So, that's all I have to update you guys about. I guess, for now. Minus the things I just don't want to put out here on the internet for every random one to read. Like, you understand that right?
Anyways, I have to go now. My history papers and summaries are screaming my name. They're already missing me, cuties.

Time to say goodbye now!
Love,
Stella


ELLE's Style Bible

Hello lovely people I have missed so much.

I can't even see you. Yes I am weird. Anyways, I really missed blogging. For a while I just didn't have the inspiration to do it. I'm trying to figure out what I want my blogposts to be about and stuff. There are some things happening in my life right now, besides school, that actually need some attention because they're very important to me. I don't really like talking about it, so that's why I won't.
For now, I'm just back on track, wanting to post again for you guys. The upcoming weeks are very busy so my posts won't be that continual as they normally are. I guess it will just be little updates each time. So, this little update is about a present my mom bought for me yesterday. I actually, to be honest, never thought of buying this myself. I don't really like fasion that much that I know all designer pieces and stuff. But actually I really enjoy browsing through this and discovering which things I like and which things I don't. I'm talking about ELLE's Style Bible. It's very inspirational and I definitely think it will make spring/summer shopping a lot more 'planned'. I guess I'm just going to make myself a little lookbook on what kind of statement pieces I want in my closet this year. For now I just want a pastel coloured jeans and a teel coloured loose blouse. Those thing I'm liking the most. Other trends I don't really, like, 'figuered out' yet. But I will keep you guys updated on that for sure.

Right now I'm going to take a bath and learn my economics, Dutch and French. Three times halleluja for these great great great time ruiners.

Love and a big kiss,
Stella


This is worth watching

This really shocked me, and I wanted to help 'spreading the word'. I thought that this maybe was a good way to do so.

With love,
Stella


Spring fever in my stomach

Lovely aliens.
Seriously, if you're current country of living isn't Holland, be happy! Please. Because the weather over here sucks like crazy. I went home this afternoon and seriously, my underwear was totally soaked. I was just completely drained in water and I felt horrible. That's why I skipped choir and I am just taking sort of the night free to do stuff for school because I began stressing out. Eventhough the weather sucks and it's nothing like spring, I still got that little butterflies in my stomach who scream 'it's going to be spring soon, the sun is coming back! Don't you hear the birds and smell the flowers?'. And I'm like, no? NOT. AT. ALL. But yeah, still, I made a spring-based outfit on Polyvore today. I just went crazy when I saw the blousy, flowy top which I incorporated in it. I really would love to have that thing myself but unfortunately, like all other stuff on Polyvore -most of the time-, it's incredibly expensive. So I would have to find a look-a-like or something. I don't know, I will be going shopping any time soon I hope so I'll keep you guys updated about my wardrobe changes. Did I spell wardrobe in a good way? I don't think so. Let's say closet, that's much more easy.
So, here's the outfit. I hope you guys like it? I really do. Oh and thank you so much, all of you. I just took a look at my 'visitor-counter' and it told me my blog is viewed 6.000 times now! I know it may not sound like a lot to all of you great, fashionable bloggers out here but for me, little stupid wannabe blogger-girl, it's an amazing amount of views. So, seriously, thank you a lot. Makes me want to do blogging even more often! So right now I'm planning on doing schoolwork again, eating some fruit, jump on the crosstrainer, take a shower and go right into my bed.

Sleep tight and much love,
Stella



Doodles and swimming

Hello there you beautiful creature.
Just talking to you. Right now, at this very moment. Yes I am. Well, I don't have a lot to tell you but I just like blogging a lot. Anyways, news news news. Me and my friend are chosen to sing in a real theatre! There's a show called 'CoolTalent' and it's a show which contains different talents from different schools in our region. So me and my friend are allowed to go sing on a huge stage -well, compared to out school stage it's kinda huge- on April 7th. I am so excited already! If you could only see my face right now?! Some other news ; I'm going to swim. Yes, it's like extremely cold outside and I hate wearing my bathingsuit but I still am going. Not for fun, no no no no, for the workout-part of swimming. Me and my friend are going to the pool tonight to swim 'laps'. Even though I am very very very hesitant about wearing my bathingsuit I'm looking forward to it like crazy. If we like it, we're going to make it a habit on Monday evenings. I will keep you guys updated. If I survive those 2 hours of lap-swimming. I guess I will be com-ple-tely exhausted tonight. And yes, I am crazy so I think it will be a great feeling after 'working out'.
Last but not least, I have been searching around on the internet and found the cutest doodles. Doodles are little drawings. These doodles aren't made by me, even though I doodle a lot lately in my sketchbook/scrapbook, which I'm going to do a post about very soon. I just wanted to insert these little fun pictures 'cause, it's not a secret ; they're adorably cute!

-adorably is not a word-

Much love and cuddles,
Stella


I should smile more

Happy saturday afternoon everyone.
I'm just sitting behind my laptop again, overthinking stuff and most of all trying to find excuses not having to learn my english vocabulary. I have a test this monday and trust me, my motivation stalled to the moon. So, anyways, I was just browsing around on we heart it and I found this cute little picture (at the bottom of this post). I smiled, like, genuinly smiled. And then I realised. I have so much to smile for, or to laugh about?! I just don't do it that often. Well yeah some people always ask me why I always am smiling. I do smile, a lot! Actually, at all times when I'm around other people. Most of all that's because those people make me happy. But, I have the strongest urge to be seen as a nice person. To me it's so important what other people think about me. And that's not the only thing. As a little girl, I always smiled to other children. Most of them smiled back but when someone would stare at me with a look who could have actually like maybe even kill me or something, I got so sad and scared. I just never ever never ever never ever ever ever want to give somebody else that feeling I always have when someone just looks at me with an evil face.

But smiling should not only be a usefull thing to make people like you or think that you're nice. Genuinly smiling, in like 'being happy' is so important. Even more imporant than chocolate. Yes people. So I thought to myself why not make a list of thinhs that actually make me smile. And when I have this little period in which I find it hard to smile and be happy, I just check that little list and pick something out to do or smell or look at or talk to or eat and I can be like, remembered that I have more than a thousand of reasons to genuinly smile.

Do you guys actually, by the way, have that problem too? I know that everyone is grumpy and sad once in a while. Especially girls when they're having their periods. But, I find that I just am not aware of the greatness and happyness in my life. I mean, I went to the hairdresser this morning and she cut my hair like way too short. I lost maybe even 10 centimeters of my hair. And I also have curls, which means it looks even more short. But when I saw myself in the mirror a few minutes ago I thought 'maybe it's a good thing'. I look more awake and kind of more 'bubly'. What I also have been doing a lot lately is putting highlighter on my browbones and cheeks. Highlighter, for those of you who think I'm putting a neon school marker pen thing on my head ; highlighter is make-up. An eye-shadow-like powder with a light colour and lots of shimmer. When you put it (especially) in your inner corners of your eyes, on your browbone and on the apples of your cheeks, it looks like the sun in shining on your face when it's not even sunny. You look more awake and you kind of 'shimmer'.

Another thing which provides my happyness is working out. You've all heard this stupid sentence once ; when you're excercising, you get happy. But all you feel is pain and tiredness right? Like a tomato who's getting blended or something. But really, for me, it's like having control. I really feel like I have been getting fitter and less tired lately and I'm feeling more aware of my body and just, I don't know. I work out e-ver-y single day for like more than an hour and it's just beginning to look like a little addiction. It's like a drug. When I step of my eliptical/crosstrainer thing, I usually have the biggest smile on earth even if I had to leave my bed at 6 o'clock in the morning because otherwise I wouldn't have had enough time to exercise. I make a lot of offers to go on this trainer but it gives me back a LOT of happiness and energy.

Here is a short piece of my little what makes me smile list.

- the smell of my honey and milk Labello (chapstick)
- excercising (especially afterwards)
- a beautiful nailpolish colour on my nails
- the scent of Lush's 'The Godmother Soap'
- taking baths
- talking to my closest friends and family
- cuddling with Puck (my cat)
- watching beauty and cooking video's on Youtube (which I do while I'm working out)
- a mini-spa moment for myself
- eating a banana
- cooking
- drawing or doodling in my scrapbook/sketchbook
- having a wrist full of colourfull and wooden bracelets in summer
- going to Aruba (just having vacation on it's own too)
- going out for dinner with my mom and dad

And it continiues just like that. Do you ever overthink stuff that make you happy? What makes you smile genuinly?

Love and lots of smiles,
Stella


Writers block

Goodmorning lovely readers!
Since I have been back from France, I have been wondering what I wanted to do blogposts about. I follow some very lovely blogs from girls who are just so inspirational. They really buy stuff, do stuff, experience stuff. It's so frustrating that I don't have a great camera or great fashionable clothes or time enough to bake some things and show them to you and it's just.. yeah, it makes me unhappy. I really thought that I could just write blogposts about fashion stuff when I started my blog but I discovered myself saving up all my money and just not buying interessting stuff to talk about. Those girls I was talking about earlier just are more fashionable and they're doing more blogpost-approved-things. I don't know, I just work out, go to school, eat and go to sleep. Thats literally all I do?
Let's call this period my writers block ; my period without any inspiration or exciting stuff.
I will have to go to school in an hour so I guess I'm going to get ready!

I hope my writers block thing will be over soon!
Lots of love,
Stella
