Throwback | "Things we procrastinate and how not to" (August 14th, 2012)

Good morning all of you out there in this beautiful world.
-Yes, a very very enthusiastic opening of this post-

Because I woke up fairly early today, and I'm procrastinating like crazy -working out isn't my favorite thing to do when my body doesn't want to wake up-. So, I thought why not make a blog post.
At first I had no idea what to blog about, but then I realised that all of us actually are great talents in procrastinating things. Like I am doing today ; not wanting to go on the eliptical and stuff.
Yesterday I went school-supply-shopping. Something many many of us also procrastinate.
But why do we procrastinate?

That's very easy, right? Things we don't want to or like to think about because they are things we just don't like to do. Why? Because there are many more things to do which are more fun. Or it might be something we think is difficult or just to hard to handle.

Recommendation | No traffic on Stella-highway

If you are a stargazer like me -and no, I'm not talking about looking at the stars for real- than you know what it is like to have all these thoughts driving waaaay to fast on this big old highway in your mind. They -your thoughts- never seem to take the right exit and go home. Okay, I'll explain again, because this seems like I'm creating a Disney movie. When I, especially in my bed or during a bike trip somewhere, am alone, I start to think about everything. Yes, everything. I create checklists in my mind, together with mind maps and to-do lists and little drawings of feelings and planners and scheduals and blogpost ideas and shopping lists and almost everything a human being can think of. Keep in mind though, I don't actually think I'm the normal kind of a human being, but that's another story.


Tag | Favorite things about fall

Rainy days, colourful umbrella's, changing wardrobes, taking the bus in stead of my bike, missing the sun already; yes, monkeys, fall season has arrived and oh sweet mother of pumpkin pie -which I don't even like- how much we all adore this rainy season. I actually, honestly, don't like fall that much. Fall gives me the feeling that everything is dying. Well, not like for real, passing away, but, you know. There are no little sheep anymore, no flowers, no sun. The only thing I see when I look around is rain, grey skies. The only thing I experience in the morning is not wanting to come out of bed because it's still dark, and not knowing what to wear because it's either too hot or too cold. So, I came across this tag that wants you to answer positive questions about autumn. I think this will work for me; I need to appreciate it more. Right? So, there I go! I hope I'll put a smile on your face!



Update | Trip to London and Uni-stress

Sweetest monkeys in my jungle!

Je suis alleé en l'Angleterre et c'était très formidable. Yes, wrong language. So, in case French is like Chinese -or maybe even worse- to you, I've been to London this weekend. And it was great. I will do a little update for you all. In addition, there will be an update on my student life as well. If you're interested, keep on reading! If not, go do something that makes you happy, because you completely deserve that smile on your face!


Beauty | My favorite fall nailpolishes

Hi sexy monkeys!

I'm still alive. Oh yes! But this is definitely not due to study stress or a fire in my school building -this actually happened today, but no one got hurt and everything is alright!-. Because I am such a nailpolish addict -I counted them, I got 67. Serious problem over here- I wanted to share my favorite polishes for fall with you fellow addicts. They are all from the brand Catrice, which is -if you don't know already- a drugstore brand. Their polishes are not expensive at all, but the colourrange is amazing and they keep releasing new collections and limited edition colours. The packaging is very beautiful too; there's not too much going on, which I actually like. The only problems I find while using these polishes are that the brush sometimes sticks into the polish in stead of still being attached to the lid. I am sure all of you Catrice monsters know what I am talking about. Another problem is that the polish won't stick to your nails that long without using an anti-chipping topcoat. I have one I really love and I recommend this sweetie pie to all of you. (You can check out the post I've written about it a while ago ; click!).

Moving on to my 5 favorite colours for fall.


These are the colours I thought would fit this season best. I don't like to wear a lot of extremely dark colours, considering I always get depressed easily by coldness and windyness and everything-dark-ness. So, I picked the somewhat lighter and more 'colourfull' ones out of my huge collection. The names -from left to right- are : Pool Party at Night, I Sea You, London's Weather Forecast, Absolutely Chinchilly! and Welcome to Roosewood. Right now, I am wearing the fourth one, because this afternoon I felt like putting a neutral colour on my nails. Most of the time I go for colourful, though. What do you prefer? 

I hope you all liked this post. The Catrice nailpolishes cost € 2,99 -or more if you happen to buy a limited edition one-. I found the English version of the website, so that all of you monkeys-from-another-jungle can also check it out ; click!

Lots of love,
Stells.
